V  "V  ���*���  A Weekly Paper published in tie interests of the Boundary Creek Mining District..  Vol, V,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY,  JANUARY  21, 1899,  124 No, 20  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  oeHf,HE new municipal council for the City of Green-  38 wood held its first meeting on Monday evening.  No business was transacted. / The mayor and  aldermen present declared their intentions and an  adjournment was ordered until Monday evening  next, when the city's business will receive serious  consideration. Before the meeting of the new  council the old council met with Mayor Wood in the chair  and Aldermen Galloway, Paton, Barrett and Phelan present.  Several accounts we're passed and then the final adjournment was carried.  Police Magistrate Hallett made his . appearance, armed  with seven typewritten declarations. His worship, Mayor  Hardy, signed one, and Aldermen Naden, Galloway,  Sutherland and Campbell individually signed one. The  declaration was taken from the Municipal Ejections act  and is as follows :  " I���, (alderman or mayor as the case may be), do declare that'I am a British subject, possessing the qualifications by law required and that I am not in any way disqualified from holding the office of a municipal (mayor or  alderman as the case may be) and I have not nor will I  have while holding office, any interest directly or indirectly  in any contract or services connected with the corporation  except such as I may lawfully have under the provisions of  the Municipal Clauses act in that behalf. I have not by  myself or any other person, knowingly employed any  bribery or corruption or intimidation to gain my election,  and I will faithfully perform the duties of my office, and  will not allow any private interests to influence my conduct  in public matters."  After taking the oath of office Ma3'or Hardy briefly  addressed the council. He paid- a compliment to Mayor  Wood and declared his intention of supporting any measure  of public interest, irrespective of whether it was introduced  by an alderman supporting his election or not. He would  endeavor to the best of his ability to give satisfaction. He  hoped that all would be as good friends as they were a few  months ag-o. Considerable warm feeling was engendered  during the election, and he hoped some people who feel sore  would see the error of their ways, regain their senses and  work' in the best interests of the city. He thought that  there  would  be no  business  to  bring before  the council  to-night.  Alderman Naden felt that he was classed by the mayor  among those who should regain their senses. He never  knew he lost his. He intended to do his duty in the interests of the city without regard to the election campaign.  Alderman Galloway did not think.he lost his senses and  did not expect that the mayor would act other than in an  impartial manner. He hoped that the business of the  council would not be conducted in too formal a manner, but  that aldermen would be left free to suggest measures that  would promote the city's interest.  Alderman Sutherland would use every effort to promote  the interests of the city, and Alderman Campbell made a  similar declaration. <���'������'���  On motion of Alderman Naden, seconded by Alderman  Campbell, a unanimous vote of thanks was tendered the retiring mayor. Ex-Mayor Wood thanked the council for its  unanimous expression of good will. He hoped that Mayor  Hardy would have as pleasant a time in the chair as he had  and that greater success would attend  the work of the new  council.  On motion of Alderman Galloway, seconded by Alderman Sutherland, the council then adjourned.  PROVINCIAL   LEGISLATURE.  If the electors who have .the opportunity, would vote  to leave one or two of the resigned members at home, the  last would be heard of the resignation business. When  Chas. B. Tisdallputs the country to the expense of a new  election because a clerk in his store sold a 'provincial police  constable a box of cartridges- worth 70 cents, the resignation business becomes a perfect farce. Equally ridiculous  is the reason offered by R. Hall for his resignation. His  company sold a ton of coal to government house arid the  coal was paid for by the people of . the province through the  government, consequently he must resign. Mr. McPhillips,  another of the Victoria members has also resigned. He is  anxious to remove any possible doubt as to his disqualification by reason of a transaction between his law partner and  the late government. Mr. Barnard prosecuted for the  crown at an assize court held one week before the election,  but payment for this service was made subsequently. The  fee was received by Mr. Barnard on his personal account.  Mr. McPhillips does not believe the transaction affected his  standing as a member and Mr. Bodwell agrees with him,  but the resignation business is contagious, and in view of  the heavy penalties attached to sitting and voting illegally  he decided to resign and stand for re-election.  Mr. McPhillips makes the fifth member who resigned  his seat for similar reasons. All the bye-elections cost the  province money and disturb the work of the legislature. We  would suggest that the finnicky members be taught a  lesson. The people of Victoria might leave. Mr. McPhillips  at home. He ought to receive some punishment for making-"  an eight-hour speech in the legislature.  The 'bill enabling Messrs. Prentice and Deane to sit  during the session was passed last week and received the  assent of the governor. The opposition endeavored to  obstruct the passage of the bill, but Fighting Joe was top  much for them.  The bill preventing aliens from holding placer claims  has passed through committee. Members on both sides  supported the measure.  0k  ftr  ft?  v?  THE   MAIL   SERVICE.  Notwithstanding the visit of Inspector  Mclyeod and  the promise of better  service  in  the  future, the  people of  Boundary Creek are still enjoying  some  delightfully interesting irregularities   in   connection   with   the  delivery and  conveyance of  her'majesty's'mail.    A  business letter sent  from this office to Cascade  City  on December 19th, reached  its destination on  January 14th,   or, as  our  correspondent  aptly puts it, the letter took 26 days  to make, a distance of  37  miles.    Fortunately  it was  adorned  with   a three-cent  stamp.    It  would  be really  too  bad  if  the  new two-cent  stamp with the high sounding "We  hold  a  vaster  empire  than has'been," should find a resting place on a letter that  was carried less than 1)4. miles per   day.    In   the days of  the more modest empire and the ordinary three-cent stamp  a faster service was   occasionally   provided.   .The Rossland  mail has also been   very  irregular  for  several   weeks, but  this is perhaps caused by the  difficulty  in'crossing the Columbia   river   on   account   of    ice.      Altogether   mail   to  and from the Boundary Creek country is  handled in a very  unsatisfactory   manner, and   it   should be part of the duties  of  the inspector   to   attend   to   the   matter.    Every   week  petitions and   complaints   are   being   sent  in to the department and no attention is being paid   to them.    It   is of the  highest importance that the letter service   at least should  be regular. 8 I '���'  if  ��^^?��^sa^  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  COMMERCIAL   ASSOCIATION.  .Several important matters were considered at the Wednesday evening  meeting, of the Greenwood Mining- and  Commercial association. , President  Anderson wa-sin the chair. With the  exception of the president and secretary of the association, who were  elected at the first meeting, the following- officers were elected : President, J.  Anderson; vice-president, Robt. Wood;  secretary-treasurer, W. S. Keith ; executive committee, W. L/. C. Gordon,  D. Ross, D. A. Cameron, Mayor Hardy  and Ralph Smailes.  D. Bannerman, J. Fisher and J. M.  N. Hill were elected members of the  association.  The Hon. Wm. Mulock, postmaster-  g-eneral, acknowledged the receipt of  letter regarding the securing of a daily  eastern mail via American lines, and  promised to give the matter his early  and serious consideration. A similar  letter was received from Hon. Wm.  Patterson, minister of customs. Hewitt  Bostock, M. P., also acknowledged receipt of letters and promised to push  both matters upon his arrival at  Ottawa.  Mr. Wood drew attention to the  treatment accorded the Snodgrass  stage line by the postoffice department.  All Mr. Snodgrass asked for hauling  the mail to and a from Grand Forks on  alternate days was  an  equitable rate,  o  based on the contract price, which  would amount to $50��per month. The  department allowed him only $25 a  month, and now wished him to carry  the mails on alternate days free, because the department allowed him to  change the Penticton time schedule.  The route was an unusually expensive  one, and Mr. Snodgrass has made up  his mind to cease hauling mails on  alternate days unless the department  offers reasonable remuneration.  Several members of the association  pointed out the importance of maintaining the daily mail service, and it  was decided to telegraph the postmaster-general, urging- such steps as  will insure the continuance of a daily  mail.  The question of securing a resident  gold commissioner was then discussed.  It was pointed out that the gold commissioner resides at the outskirts of  the district, nearlj' ninety miles from  the center of business; that 75 per  cent, of the commissioner's business  comes from Boundary Creek, and that  the present arrangements entailed a  great deal of expense and inconvenience. The committee on. local'requirements, were instructed to prepare a  memorial to the government, urging  the appointment of a gold commissioner for this district.  A meeting of the association will be  held next Wednesday evening, when  important questions will come up for  consideration.  Several Greenwoodites are going to  take in the Rossland carnival. Among  those who leave for the Kootenay capital on Monday are J. Edwards Eeckie  and Ronald Harris. Mr. Harris may  go east from Rossland.  Rossland.

Some magnificent looking- ore is  being- taken from the Nellie Cotton  shaft in Greenwood camp where several  men are at work. This claim and the  Mystic were recently bonded by Mr.  Porteous of Montreal. The shaftqon  the Nellie Cotton is down 35 feet all in  ore. At 50 feet it is the intention to  crosscut the ledge, which is supposed  to be similar to the other big G-reen-  wood camp ledges. The ore assays  well and Mr. Smith, who left for Toronto in connection with this and  other properties, took with him some  excellent specimens from the property.  Professor Montgomery.  Prof. H. Montgomery, M. A., mineralogist and geologist at Trinity university, Toronto, was in the city last  week. He is president of the Minnehaha company, Camp McKinney, and  had just returned from a visit to the  company's property. Professor Montgomery was well pleased with the out-~  look. He believes that the Minnehaha  will make a big dividend-payer. He  visited several of the mines in Boundary Creek and was greatly interested  in the wonderful variety of ores to be  found here. He believes that Boundary Greek is going to be one of the  greatest mining districts in the world.  W. T. Smith left on Tuesdays for  Toronto in connection with some big  mining deals he is negotiating. J. C  Haas has also gone east on mining  business.

In view of the complications that are  likely to arise because of the lack of  qualifications of two of the aldermen  elect, who have so far refrained from  taking- the oath of office, the procedure  in a similar case in Rossland will prove  interesting- reading-. Alderman Barrett (not our own Alderman Barrett)  was elected during the recent election  in Rossland. A search of the records  in the land registry office revealed the  fact that Mr. Barrett had not the necessary qualifications, because of delay  in registering his property. Alderman  Barrett at once tendered his resignation. Commenting upon the matter,  the Rossland Miner says :  " The withdrawal of Mr. Barrett will  necessitate a new nomination for his  successor from the Third ward. The  nomination will be held some time  within the next ten days. If only one  candidate be nominated, he will go  into office by acclamation. If more  than one be nominated, an election in  the Third ward must be held. There  has been a g-eneral impression that  since Mr. Barrett has withdrawn, his  ���opponent in the late election, E}li I/a-  valley, will therefore be installed into  office without further ceremony. This  is a mistake. The whole proceedings  of electing-a new alderman from the  ���Third ward must be carried out as if  no past election had been held."  ^liuiiiiiiiiiaiiiiuuiuniiia^.

Owing- to the delay in hauling- freight  from  Penticton, <we   were   unable   to  change-the  size   of   The   Boundary  Creek Times as  early  in  the year as  we   announced.    The  necessary    supplies reached the office this week, how-,  ever, and  next  week  our  subscribers  : will   be   furnished   with  The   Times  in . the regular  newspaper   form.    In  order to keep pace with the growth and  development of  the city   and district,  w,e  have  also  decided   to   issue  The  Times twice a week in the future. The  days of publication will be.Wednesday  and.Saturday.    The subscription price  will remain the  same, and   the  advertising rates  will  be  only  slightly increased.    In order  to  meet  the  extra  expense, the rule that all subscriptions  are due in advance must  be  made imperative.    The publication of  a twicc-  a-week paper entails  considerable additional  labor  and  expense,   and   the  fact that it is possible   to  do so in this  city shows what  rapid  strides. Greenwood and the surrounding district have  made    since   -The   Times    was   first  issued.    Outside  of  the  larger  cities,  where dailies are published, Kamloops  is the only other  town  in  British Columbia that  has  more  than a weekly  paper.  As soon as the Robson-Bouhdary  Creek railway is completed and telegraphic communication secured, we  expect that Greenwood will be a city  of several thousand inhabitants, and  that the twice-a-week paper will give  place to a daily. The increased attention which has been given to the mining resources of the district, the very  great encouragement  which   those de  veloping properties have received, and  the. general appearance of prosperity  and activity that marks the city and  district, all force one to the conclusion  that Greenwood, the metropolis of the  Boundary Creek district, is going to be  the largest and busiest city in the  interior.  The Boundary Creek Times was  issued in Greenwood before there was  business enough to justify the existence of a newspaper. A twice-a-week  paper is in advance of the present  business and population, but we must  have sufficient confidence to take  chances on . the future. No business  man will make a grave mistake by  banking on the future of Greenwood  and making the necessary provision  for largely increased trade. .  A word to the advertiser : Changes  must be in the hands of the printer  early Monday morning to insure their  appearance in Wednesday's paper.  THE   B.   C-  MINE.  Messrs. A. H. Harrison and B. ID.  Barchard, who recently sold the B. C.  mine, returned from Rossland on  Saturday evening. They leave for a  visit to EJngland in a few days but expect to return about the  end of  April.  It is reported that the McQuaig syndicate, which bonded this property,  have organized a company with a  capital of $1,500,000. Montreal people  over subscribed for the stock by  several hundred thousand shares. Five  hundred thousand shares were placed  in the treasury and the entire number  were purchased at 50 cents a share,  giving $250,000 for development purposes. This and Graves' smelter company are among- the most successful  flotations in connection with British  Columbia mining. They show that  Montreal capitalists have at last turned  their attention to Boundary Creek  mining properties.  The New  Chief of Police.  Greenwood  is fortunate  in securing  the services of  Chief John  Mclyaren.  He is a better man   than the city could  expect.     Haying-  long   police   experience in  Winnipeg   and  Vancouver, he  has learned to keep  his  place  and  do  his duty.    A chief of police  requires a  big body and  a  good deal of common  sense.      Chief    McL/aren    has    both.  Those  who   are   anxious  that   Greenwood  should be   an  orderly  city, will  find the new  chief  a good-natured fellow who  attends to  his  own business  and is   not   at  all   anxious   to   meddle  with    other    people's    affairs.      The  vicious,   the   tinhorns, and  people  of  that   ilk, will   find   that   the   road  to  Grand   Forks    offers   greater  inducements than an  acquaintance  with the  chief of police.  A Temperance Story,  A good story is told in connection  with the recent cold weather. Contractor McDonnell from Summit met  Messrs. White and Wilson near Cascade City. The thermometer registered  48 below zero and quit. Mac asked  the travelersoif they had any liquor.  They answered in the negative.  "Well, I have," said the big contractor and pulled a bottle from his sleigh.  Mac's   face   was    a   study    when   he  noticed that the whiskey, was frozen.-  " It serves me rig-ht," he muttered in a.  sad and frozen tone, " for buying" my  whiskey at Grand Forks. I'll g-et it at  Greenwood in the future."  King Rees and bride were visitors-  with Mrs. J. P. Flood this week. Mr,  Rees will have charge of the books at  both the Cascade and Grand Forks-  meat markets.  B     H.   HALLETT,  'xxttisttt, Mo&citot,  NOTARY   public.  GREENWOOD,   O.O.

Several men have arrived  from Rossland to continue work on the  property. A slig-ht error was made in  the holiday number Of Thk Times in  connection with this property. It was  stated that the Oro Denoro had been  bonded by the King Mining company.  This company owns the property. Mr.  H.

Thanks   to   the    confidence   which  those   who   control    Boundary   Creek  joint   stock companies have in  their  properties, it is difficult to secure shares  in many local companies.    During the  last few  weeks   many  inquiries were  made for Winnipeg, but  there is practically none   on  the  market.     There  was quite a flurry   in   Boundary Creek  Mining0 and  Milling-  company's stock  and several thousand  shares  changed  hands at ten cents.    A few weeks ago  it could not be sold for two cents.   The  sudden rise is due to the fact that new  men have taken hold of  the  company  and are doing good work on the properties.    Old Ironsides and Knob Hill are  still   favorite  buys  in  eastern' cities.  The   Morrison   stock   is   also   sought  after.    The  shares  of  the  King company, owning the* Oro Denoro in Summit camp, are selling  rapidly.    Many  brokers are opening offices here and by  spring- it is expected   that there will be  as much excitement in the buying and  selling of mining   stocks  as  was  connected  with   the  Rossland  boom  two  years  ago.     Several   new   companies  are being- organized.  COMPETITIVE   FREIGHT   RATES.  Mr. C. G. Dixon, generai freight and  passenger agent of the Spokane Falls  and Northern railway, takes exception  to certain criticisms appearing in the  Cascade Record concerning shipments  via the Great Northern and his line.  He has written a letter to the Record,  in which he claims that the quickest  route for coast goods is by the Great  Northern and his line. He makes  comparisons as follows :  " Taking shipments into Cascade  City via Bosburg, with its wagon haul  of less than thirty-five miles, and comparing- this route with that via Penticton, with transfer at Okanagan  Landing from rail line to steamer and  ag-ain at Pentiction for a  wagon haul  of 120 miles, with transfers by teams  and the uncertainty of weather conditions, I would consider comparisons to  be in our favor.  "Again, considering the Brooklyn  route as a possible one, I presume  every one is familiar with the present  method of handling- business via  Revelstoke and Arrowhead. The Canadian Pacific boats have been, withdrawn from service below Nakusp,  therefare shipments are routed from  Revelstoke in the following manner :  "From Arrowhead via boat to Nakusp, from Nakusp to Roseberry via  rail, from Roseberry to Slocan City by  boat, from Slocan City to Robson by  rail, and transferred at the latter point  to boat again for Brooklyn, thence via  wagon road to Cascade City.  "Allow me to repeat a o portion of the  article reserred to : ' You can fool part  of the people all the time and all the  people part of the time, but you cannot fool all the people .all the time.'  "How long will Boundary Creek  merchants consent to act as catspaws  to pull Canadian Pacific chestnuts  out of the furnace of troubles outlined above ?"  REDUCTIQ   AD   ABSURDUM.  The resigning craze at Victoria is  is bringing the legislature into contempt and disrepute. It is anything  but creditable that members elected to  seriously consider problems of vital  importance, should spend their time in  making- the Independence of Parliament act a farce. A late dispatch says  that Hon. J. H. Turner, leader of the  opposition has declined to take his seat  until he can find out from his branch  store in Nelson whether, by any  chance,' a clerk there sold a few goods  to a g-overnment road party. Colonel  Baker, of Bast Kootenay, stated from  his place in the house to-day that possibly his agents at Cranbrook may  have sold a cow, a  horse or  a  feed of  hay to a \ government official, and  therefore he would hot sit pending inquiries. Hon. J. F, Hume, minister of  mines, is in the same box as regards  his'store at Nelson, and apparently  there are more to follow.  A.

The   unjust   redistribution   bill   by  which   Boundary   Creek  district   was  made a portion  of  the Rossland constituency is responsible for an anomalous   state  of   affairs,   which  works a  great hardship to this  section  of  the  country.    The Boundary Creek district  is supposed to be a portion of the Rossland  constituency, but so  far  as  the  expenditure of money is concerned it is  still under the control  of the-government ag-ent at  Vernon.    We  have not  one word to  say  against Mi*. Leonard  Norris, the g-overnment ag-ent.    He is,  however, a  public  servant, and  while  he is anxious to do justice  to Boundary   Creek dirtrict, his  hands  are tied  by   the   .stronger    influences ; in   the  vicinity of Vernon.    The district lying-  south  of   Penticton will   not   receive  proper consideration until it has representation and% officers of its own. Until  such representation is  granted, a government agent for this  district  ought  to be appointed  and  money appropriated to meet the special public requirements  of  our  important  mining  district.    It is unfair to-Boundary Creek  to ask it to depend  on   a  government  agent residing in a different  constituency for  its   share of  appropriations.  A still greater hardship  would  be inflicted   on  the  district  by  placing  it  under the  control  of the  government  agent   at    Rossland.      Rossland   and  Boundary Creek are  separated by two  or three precipitous  ranges  of mountains and it would   almost be impossible  for  a ���government  agent at Rossland to keep in touch with the requirements  of 'Boundary  Creek, even if he  were anxious to-do so.  BUILDING   OPERATIONS.  J. O'Brien is erecting a three-story  building on his lot between the International hotel and the Fashion livery  stable. Several lodging houses are  being built to meet the demand. J.  B. Desrosier is erecting a large two-  story building on Gold street for this  purpose. An extension is being built  to the Palace livery stable. Several  small residences are under construction.

Mayor Hardy, Police Magistrate Hal-  lett and Alderman Naden  met  as the  board of police commissioners on Tuesday afternoon and appointed John McLaren chief  at  a   salary of $100 per  month.     The  meeting  was   a  rather  lengthy one  and there  was  considerable unanimity of  opinion  among the  commissioners    respecting   important  questions connected  with  police, matters.    All commissioners were  of the  opinion that a good  man   should have ���  the, appointment,   and   a  good  salary  ought to be paid.    Mayor Hardy's only  objection to Mr. McLaren was that he  was an outside man.  Aid. Naden���You sent out for a  bookkeeper,.Mr. Mayor.  The Mayor���I couldn't get a suitable  man here.  Aid. Naden���Exactly. Will you tell  us of a good local man that would  make a good chief ?  Mr. McLaren's qualifications for the  position were briefly told by the police  magistrate. >. Mr. McLaren had been  chief of police at Vancouver for six  years and was the best chief Vancouver ever had. He has had the best of  police training and is, in Mr. Hallett's  opinion, the best officer in British Columbia. He was only afraid that the  city could not keep him, but if Mr. McLaren was chief for two months only  he would get things on a proper basis  and materially help the commissioners  in their work.  The appointment was made and then  the question of night watchman came  up and provoked a lengthy discussion.  Mayor Hardy wanted A. H. Lawder  appointed to the position. Police  Magistrate Hallett wanted to place the  responsibility with the chief and  thought he should be consulted regarding the selection of his officers. He  suggested that Mr. Lawder be kept on  temporarily as at present. If, at the  end of the month, the chief was satisfied with Mr. Lawder, the board could  then make the appointment permanent.  Police Magistrate Hallett's suggestion was adopted and the salary for  night watchman fixed at $75 per  month.. The board then had a conference with the chief and adjourned until January 31st.  Dr. R. W. Jakes returned from Grand  Forks on Friday last. He used every  effort to save the life of Chas. Van  Ness, but pneumonia had too strong a  grip before the doctor was called in.  The remains were taken east for interment.  2$ 4* 4? 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4" 4* 4* 4* 4? 4* 4* 4* 4* 4r 4*3��  /  ������  ����*  FOR  -  4*  Turkeys, Geese, Ducks, Chickens, ^  Oysters, Fish, and all kinds of *  fresh and cured Meats, go to  P.

C  The London, England, Bullionist  last month published a very appreciative criticism of the new provincial government in-British Columbia. The article declares that the new  g-overnment have undoubtedly got the  confidence of the electorate as a whole  and are gaining ground every day.  When they entered into office they  found things in a frightful state of  confusion and a floating debt of something like a million dollars. The men  now at the head of affairs, from a  business point of view, are much more  capable and energetic than the members of the old government. There is  no doubt that a certain favored few  will not have the same opportunities  for enriching themselves at the expense of the public as has formerly  been the case, but this will not be any  loss to the province as a whole, or to  bona fide business corporations operating therein.  NEW   FREIGHT   ROUTE.  H. E. McDonnell, C. P. R. freight  agent, returned from Cascade this  week, after making arrangements for  freighting Boundary Creek-goods from  Brooklyn. Mr. McDonnell has placed  .six four-horse teams on the route. All  freight over the C.'P.'-R. from eastern  points will be shipped to Brooklyn.  "The rate from Brooklyn will be one  and a half cents, the same as from  Penticton, Marcus or Bossburgv The  freight teams will be kept on the Pen-  -tictoh route so that goods arriving  there from the coast or elsewhere will  "foe hauled to their destination. Mr.  McDonnell returned to Nelson on  Thursday. -  Percy Godenrath, the traveling correspondent of the Spokesman-Review,  is in the district again. He went to  Camp McKinney on Wednesday.  Bruce White, the well-known Slocan  lhining man was, in the city last week.  Q0tb0 #atewff fo iU ��>fb <xnb Wefcomes i%t Qtw Tgeat.  Plain truths are plainly understood by everybody.

Branch Office, ROSSLAND, B. C  JAMES P, SWOFD, Manager.  Greenwood Brickyard.  H. H. Brotten & Co., have established an important industry in Greenwood in the shape of a- well-equipped  brickyard. During- the last year contractors cind builders had the greatest  difficulty in securing" brick for chimneys, and a brick building- was an impossibility. In the future it is quite  possible to erect buildings with homemade brick. Brotten & Co's yard is at  the upper end of the townsite', where  excellent clay can be secured. Already 50,000 brick have been made, and  in about ten days a kiln of 80,000 will  be burned. Mr. Brotten is an expert  enced brickmaker. It is the intention  of the firm to be shortly in a position  to supply orders for any quantity.  Not a Low-Grade Camp.  For many years,   when   the   mining  men of this section were attempting to  attract the   attention   of  capitalists to  this   district,   they  would   invariably  .meet with the   answer "your  ores   are  low-grade."     The   work, done  within  the   past    year    on   the   best   known  properties   in   this  district   has shown  that such is not the case.    The ores of  Boundary Creek were  not  understood  until recently ; also it   may   be   safely  said  that the  permanency  of  the ore  bodies was not established until within  the last   year.    Recent  purchases   by  capitalists employing-the  best  expert  talent have amply  justified the  belief  of the pioneer mining men   of  Boundary Creek that  there  would be a large  percentage  of  profit  in  handling the  ores of this camp.  The Atlantic Bond.  The Atlantic in Kimberley camp was  bonded by Bruce White of the Slocan  Star mine -and Messrs. Wilson and  Burns, of P. Burns & Co. The price  is $20,000. Of this amount $500 was  paid in cash and the balance will be  paid during the year. The deal was  arranged by B. A. Bielenberg. The  new owners will beg4n working the  property at once.  Not Correct.  The report from Grand Forks, dated  December 10, to the Spokesman-Review, stating that a liquidator had  been appointed to wind up the business of the B. C. Mercantile company  of Cascade is without foundation. The  manager of the company has gone to  Spokane and will likely make matters  interesting for the Review for publishing such unreliable news.  K. M. Johnson, a barrister of Nelson,  visited Greenwood last week.  THE   BANK   OF  Established in 1836.  Incorporated by Royal Charter.  Paid-up Capital $4,866,666.  Reserve Fund $1,387,000.
