Iii  Vol, III,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY; JANUARY 15, 1898.  71  No. 19.  A ss I  TRAITOROUS    CONDUCT.  *Y*H3��, secretary of the recently organized Bouiidar}-  Creek Mining- & Commercial Association is also  the Greenwood correspondent of the Vancouver  News-Advertiser. One would suppose that since  he voluntarily consented to act as secretary of  such an association he fully endorsed the purposes for which it was organized and the manner in which that organization was brought about. The  members of the association will therefore be surprised that  in a recent correspondence to the News-Advertiser, dated  Greenwood, December 28th, the following- extraordinary  paragraph*appears :p  "Bidding- adieu for the time to sentiment aud  turning- to  the dry happening's  of business  life, the formation   of an  association, designed to be useful, has now to be chronicled.  Unfortunately,   though,   the  new  Boundary Creek Mining  and  Commercial Association  has  been  brg-anized   almost  al tog-ether  by the  comparatively   few  residents of Greenwood instead of by men from the different parts of the district.    That  is   one  characteristic  of  certain  residents of  Greenwood���they   are  narrow   and   somewhat   selfish.    It  would have been an easy matter to  have  arranged  for the  , presence of representative men   from  Midway,  Anaconda,  and other parts of the district, but beyond asking- one Anaconda resident who was casually met in Greenwood the previous day, to attend the meeting-, no earnest effort was made  to make it a district organization.'    This same narrow spirit  was uppermost at the meeting-  for, with   three  exceptions,  the officers and committee  are all  Greenwood  men- andaat  least one of those from outside the town was not first  asked  whether or not it would be agreeable  to  himself  to fill the  office  alotted   to  him.    The   list is as follows:    President,  Mr. Thos. Hardy ; Vice-Presidents, Messrs. F. Keffer, ( Anaconda ), W. H. Norris, ( Midway), and D. Ross ; Secretary,  Mr. ID. Jacobs ; Treasurer, Mr. Geo. R. Naden ;   Committee,  Messrs. A. S. Black,   C.  S.   Galloway,   G. A. Guess, W. M.  L/aw, (Anaconda), J. W. Nelson, M. J.   Phelan, R.  Smailes,  W. T. Smith, and Robert Wood.    This gives twelve  Greenwood residents on the committee out of a  total  of  fifteen.  This unequal   representation has  already   occasioned  the  feeling- that the organization is a Greenwood  rather than a  district one, and  its  usefulness  is  therefore somewhat impaired from the start.    The constitution of the  old association of the same name, which died last spring- as a result of  the dissatisfaction at its being- run by only  a  few  persons  rather than the larger number to which the manag-ement of  its affairs had been nominally entrusted, was read and after  some alterations  and  amendments  had   been  made,   was  adopted.    The first section of this constitution reads as follows :    "The object of the association shall be���the furtherance of all mining- and commercial interests and the advanc-  m'entof all enterprises having- for  their  object  the benefit  of the city and all subsidiary camps.    To include   advertising-, entertaining- likely investors, the drawing- up and  presentment of petitions for obtaining-  any concessions   from  the g-overnments or appointment of deleg-ates, as may seem  desirable."    A low membership fee was paid and it was decided to hold fortnightly general meetings  and  committee  meetings whenever required."  The above paragraph is strikingly unique because only a  man who has a genius for cleverly damning those interests  he is supposed to advocate could have condensed so much  that is false and vicious and traitorous to the district in so  small a space.  The harm which the publication of such an article will do  is incalculable. Mr. Jacobs, the author, has no influence  and is not important but his contributions to the press have  and are ; not because they contain anything meritorious but  because the editor of the News-Advertiser is indiscreet  enough to allow that widely circulated newspaper to be the  medium through which he gives vent to his personal antagonisms and disparages an institution that was organized for  no purpose other than to promote the interests of Boundary  Creek district.  If the false impression gets  abroad   that   the   Boundary  Creek Mining & Commercial Association is a tool in the  hands of a selfish clique instead of being an institution representing the commercial and mining men of the district,  then its influence is nil. If governments and legislatures  believe the paragraph in the News-Advertiser and are convinced that the Boundary Creek Mining & Commercial Association does not represent the people of Boundary Creek  district, every resolution which it may pass, every petition  to which the signatures of its members are attached, eve^  memorial which it may forward will, carry no weight.  That the correspondent of a respectable newspaper would  wantonly attempt to nullify, the influence of such an association would be,strange, but when that newspaper correspondent is the secretary of the association and almost his  first act is to publicly denounce it as a tool in the hands of a  selfish clique, his conduct is inexplicable.  To show how preposterously absurd are the contentions  in the paragraph one has only to read the reference to the  officer who was never asked whether it would be agreeable  to him to fill the office to which he was appointed. Now  who had the right to choose officers for an association before  it was organized ? If any one had attempted to do such a  thing* he would very probably be open to the charge that  he was arrogating to himself the powers of the association.  It is no insult to any man to be elected to an office in a public association, and he has the right to refuse such an office.  The slighting reference to the " comparatively few .residents of Greenwood " was entirely uncalled for and in no  way justifiable. EJvery resident of Anaconda, every resident of Midway will admit that for population and commercial importance Greenwood is entitled to greater consideration than to be dubbed the city of the comparatively few.  Almost too silly to be seriously considered is the contention that too many of the officers of the association are residents o:f Greenwood. In all associations of this nature, representing people in different towns and in a large area, it  has been found necessary to have the majority of the officers  residents of the town in which the meetings are held in  order to insure a quorum at the meetings of the directors.  No one excepting a breeder of dissension could possibly  object to such an arrangement and we dp not believe that  any one in the district does object excepting Mr. Jacobs.  The Boundary Creek Mining & Commercial Association  does represent the people of Boundary Creek district. It is  not controlled by any clique and its meetings are attended  by representative business men of Midway, Anaconda and  Greenwood as well as b}' those who have extensive mining-  interests in the district.  In justice to the people of Boundary Creek district who  for years have fought bravely and unitedly to secure justice  for the district, the News-Advertiser ought to make every  effort to counteract the influence of the report that has been  so extensively circulated and received such prominence in  its columns.  As for the Boundary Creek Mining & Conimercial Association its course is clear. Under no circumstance should  one of its most important offices be held by a man who has  so clearly demonstrated that he is designedly or fatuously a  traitor to its interests.  i'f  iif  iif  LICENSING   COURT.  As the applicants for hotel licenses had not fully complied  with the instructions of the commissioner, the adjourned  meeting of the court was further adjourned until 10 o'clock  to-day when the court will sit for the purpose of granting-  licenses.

The electors of the city of Greenwood move rather slowly in municipal  matters and consequently it wras not  until the day of nomination that any  great interest was shown in the election. Sufficient nominations for aldermen were received to make an election  necessary. His Worship, Mayor Wood,  was ag-ain elected by acclamation.  His nomination papers were sig-ned by  G. Arthur Rendell and G. R. Naden.  The following were the nominations  received for aldermen: Wm. Berry  Paton, accountant; proposed by M. J.  Phelan and Robert Wood.  James Kerr,merchant,  proposed by  G. Arthur Rendell and Robert Wood.  -. 'L,.' S. Moulton  Barrett proposed by  Jno. A. Crawford and D. R. McElmon.  Chas. Scott Galloway, engineer, proposed by W. J.

Phelan, merchant, proposed by  Robert    Wood    and   William     Berry  .���.Paton...'...''.'  After the nominations were declared  closed by returning officer A. S. Black,  His Worship, Mayor Wood, in response  to repeated calls briefly addressed those  present. He thanked the electors for  the honors conferred on him. It was  indeed gratifying to find that he had  no opposition. He accepted the nomination because he has some time at  his disposal and he would endeavor to  occupy that time in the best interests  of the city.    (Applause.)  The candidates for aldermen then  addressed the electors briefly.  THE   RESULT.  Owing to the fact that the mayor  had been elected by acclamation and  that Messrs.. Rendell and Guess had  withdrawn from the contest but little  interest was taken in the election for  aldermen. With only seven cah.dida.tes  and six to be elected there was but little room for opposition. Up to eleven  o'clock only two votes were polled.  About noon a few straggling voters  came in, but as will be seen from the  result many of the 100 possible voters  in the city did not take sufficient interest in the election to record their  votes. The counting of the ballots  was an easy, matter and Returning  Officer A. S. Black announced the result as follows :  Galloway, C. Scott ..36  Paton, W. B. .......28  Kerr, James - 24  Barrett, I*. S.  Moulton.... : 21  Phelan, M. J 20  Parry, Evan... 18  Cameron, Alex 16  The first six were therefore declared  elected. Only 39 votes were polled out  of a possible 103.

Deane, the talented editor  of the Inland Sentinel, has been chosen  by the Opposition in North Yale as  their standard-bearer in the coming  election. The selection was made at a  representative convention recently held  in Kamloops. Mr. Deane is a popular  gentleman, has the courage of his convictions, and will put up an aggressive  fight against Hon. G. B. Martin, the  present representative for the district.  County Court.  A sitting of the county;court was  held at Midway yesterday, His Honor  Judge Spinks presiding. The docket  was a long ont, but the majority of the  cases were of little public interest.  In the case of W. T. Smith and Farrell & Midgeon vs. E. Spragget, a nonsuit by consent was entered.  Meyer vs. Garland: Adjourned to  await decision of supreme court.  Cunningham vs. Postill estate : Adjourned to Vernon.  Greer vs. Norris, claim for wages ; a  counter claim was made for damages.  Judgment for plaintiff ; decision reserved as to amount of damages.  Jermyn vs. Guess, re new trial : Security for $300 by bond.  The Winnipeg.  The treasury stock of the Winnipeg  Mining Co. is selling rapidly, there  being a great demand for this stock  among the financial men of the east.  The latest sale reported is to a wealthy  manufacturer at Mansfield, Ohio, who  purchased a large block of treasury  stock. The work at the mine is very  satisfactory. The machinery is running smoothly and good progress is  being made with the shaft.  An Enterprising Agent.  Mr. R. F. Mendenhall, the general  agent for the Jenckes Machine Co.  and the Canadian Rand Drill Co., with  headquarters at Rossland, arrived in  Greenwood Friday and will remain  here during the week. Mr. Mendenhall has met with flattering success in  placing plants in the Boundary Creek  district, four out of the five steam  plants here having been purchased  from him. For an agent he is a modest g-entleman and attributes his success to the fact that his companies advertise in The Boundary Creek  Times. But with this ought be  coupled the fact that Mr. Mendenhall  is a rustler who keeps himself informed as to where machinery is required.  It is quite probable that he may sell  one or more plants before leaving  Greenwood. Mr. Mendenhall was  greatly pleased with the substantial  appearance of Greenwood and he fully  intends to establish a branch agency  here at an early date.  Stationery.

The Times hastens to congratulate  the people of Grand Forks upon the  success of the public meeting recently  beld in that town. In the past Grand  Forks "meetings have usually been  " characterized . by ��� a selfish provincialism which was calculated to antago-  ^ nize those who would otherwise be in  sympathy with and support the objects  for which meetings were called. At  the recent meeting however, the speakers discussed 'railway matters from a  general standpoint. The speeches of  Mr. Armstrong- and Mr. Hay which,  are/published ina condensed form, in  the Grand Forks Miner contained some  .strong arguments in favor of encouraging Corbin's systems of railways.  While the meeting was  undoubtedly  a success  and  demonstrated  that the  people of Grand Forks and vicinity are  keenly alive to the   necessity for energetic action, we cannot  help  thinking  that Mayor  Manly   acted  unwisely in  so frequently making public   Mr.   Corbin's  wishes  and  suggesting that because  Mr.   Corbin   desired   a   certain  thing the people should urge that it be  granted.    Now it   strikes. �� us. forcibly  that the voice of the people would have  greater influence if Mr. Corbin did not  figure  so prominently   at meetings of  this character.    The  people of Boundary   Creek   and   neighboring  districts  desire   railway  connection   with   Mr.  Corbin's system, not because  Mr. Corbin wishes  such   a  connection but because the interests of the  country   demand    it.     Mr.   Corbin   is   a  railway  ", builder not a patriotic citizen of South  "yale.who would lose money in building  a railway to open up the district.  The Times voices the sentiment of  nine-tenths of the people of the district  when it states that Mr. Corbin should  , be granted a charter because construction of his road will do much to promote the interests of the district and  the country. It should be solely on  these grounds that the agitation for  the road should be continued. Mr.  " Corbin's wishes should publicly receive  but slight consideration and Mr. Corbin is too astute a railway promoter  not to appreciate this fact.  Mr. Hallett Won.  A case of considerable importance  was tried at Grand Forks on Tuesday  last, the plaintiff being Mayor Manly  of Grand Forks and the defendant Mr.  I. H. Hallett of Greenwood. The case  had been before the court for some  time and was postponed in October  last until the present sitting of the  county court.  The case arose out of the sale of the  lot on Copper street upon which Miller  Bros.' jewelry shop stands.  Mayor Manly who gave evidence in  his own behalf claimed that during  1896 Mr. Hallett acted as his solicitor  and drew up a mortgage from E. W,  McDowell in his (Manly's) favor on  lot 35, block 8, Greenwood City, and  that afterwards Mr. Hallett obtained a  conveyance of the lot subject to the  mortg-age from   McDowell to   himself  the  of  o-  Statement of Revenue  Receipts  and Expenditure for the  Year   ending   31st   of   December,   1897:  RECEIPTS.

The gist  of Manly's claim  Was that as solicitor or agent for Manly Hallett had  no right   to  secure the  . lot in his  own   name   and that he held  the lot as trustee for Manly.  Mr. A. S. Black who appeared for  Mr. Hallett, subjected Manly to a rigid  cross-examination and the latter admitted that previous to the commencement of the suit, he had conveyed all  his interest in the lot to Miller Bros.  He also admitted that in December of  1896, he and McDowell visited Hal-  -. left's office and he agreed that on payment of the mortgage money and interest and $29 by McDowell making $300  in. all he would execute a release of the  mortg-age and would surrender to McDowell a note of his, Manly then  held.    :  His Honor, Judge Spinks, held that  these admissions were fatal to Mr.  Manly's case and that it was unnecessary, to call further witnesses. The  fact that Manly went with McDowell  to Hallett's office to make the arrangement mentioned showed that he believed the transfer to Mr. Hallett to be a  valid one, and if this were not the case  the fact that Manly transferred all his  interest in the lot to Miller Bros., left  him Without cause for action. His  Honor, Judge Spinks therefore granted  a non-suit ag-ainst Manly.  Owing to the non-suit, it was unnecessary to call witnesses for the defence. Mr. Hallett's claim was that  he was not acting- as solicitor or agent  for Manly at the time he purchased the  lot from McDowell and that he had  the right to obtain the lot from McDowell subject to the mortgage.  Mr. Cavlev appeared for Manly and  Mr. Black for Mr. Hallett.

Bassett's teams succeeded at last in  hauling the greater portion of the machinery for the Golden Crown mine to  Greenwood. Part of the machinery  was hauled to the mine, but the boiler  and other heavy portions are still in  Greenwood and Anaconda. Mr. Collins, the managing director of the company, has refused to accept the machinery from the Ingersoll-Sergeant  Co. This refusal is based on the fact  that the Ingersoll Company agreed to  deliver the machinery in Marcus over  two months ago and that the plant  does not come up to the specifications  in the contract. The Brandon & Golden Crown Company and the Ingersoll  Company are now attempting to make  satisfaction arrangements, but unless  this is done the Brandon & Golden  Crown Compaii3'r will immediately  place the order with another firm. The  Ingersoll Company are holding the  C.P.R. responsible for the non-delivery  of the plant within the time specified,  and it is quite possible that the outcome of the tangle will* be an interest-  ins: lawsuit.

THE   PUBLIC   MEETING.  A public  meeting  was held in Rendell & Go's,   hall on   Wednesday evening when several of the  candidates for  alderman   addressed  the   electors who  were present.    Mayor Wood was voted  to the chair and after  stating   that  as  his election was over, it  was unnecessary for him to speak at length he called upon, Aid. C."S. Galloway.   Aid Galloway said that as far as he  could see  there was no great,municipal question  to divide the views of the candidates or  the electors.    Ivast  year's  council did  their work  without wrangling.    They  reasoned together  and  transacted the  business of the city  in a  business like  way.    If fortunate enough to be elected  he would   strive   to   have the greater  business of this year transacted   in   a  similar   way.    There  were  of   course  several improvements needed  and the  first duty of the council was to  decide  the best means of making a necessary  -, loan. ���>.-   .  Aid.   Phelan   stated   that   the most  striking-  feature    about   the   meeting  was that  there was  not party feeling  and no g-rave issue before the  people.  He was strongly .of-the opinion that no  money   should   be   expended   on Twin  Creek until such time  as  a competent  engineer   had   declared  the   utility of  such a course and  the  water had been  analyzed.    He     also   referred   to   the  license question and held that while he  got all the   blame   for  the   license, for  peddlers other members of the council  voted for the   license.    Aid.   Galloway  for     instance    had   spoken    stronglj'-  against  the   $25   license   fee   but had  furthered   a  by-law to place a   tax   of  S2.50 on every load a  peddler  brought  into   the  city.    Aid.   Phelan   believed  that when merchants of the city had to  pay taxes to the corporation and to the  government, those from the outside to  enter into competition should also pay  some share of the taxation. Aid. Phelan did not believe in the strings being  drawn so tightly with reference to  hotel keepers that they would be aggravated into disobej'ing the law. There  was reason in all things.  Mayor Wood then addressed the  electors briefly urging them to work  together in the interests of the city.  Aid. Galloway explained his position  with reference to licenses. He opposed the excessive license tax for peddlers. He gave notice to introduce a  by-law to tax dogs but at the request of  the city clerk who drafted the by-law  he included licenses to save the expense  of advertising- two different by-laws.  The fee in the by-law at present does  not increase the tax on peddlers.  Mr. C. J. McArthur spoke briefly  against the: tax on peddlers. He was  in favor of free trade and believed that  the families of the city were opposed  to taxing those who brought them fresh  fruits, eggs, .etc. ;  Mr; Ralph Smailes believed that it  was scarcely fair to allow hawkers to  sell goods in the city without any taxes  while those who had invested from  $15,000 to $20,000 in��the city had to pay  taxes to maintain the city.  Mr. J. W. Powell was opposed to expending money on Twin Creek. People could insure their houses and if they  burnt down, they could build others.  Mr. McRae mildly suggested ,,-, that  Mr. Powell was in collusion with Mr.  Naden in the insurance business. He  also discussed the license question from  the business man's point of view.  Mr. Naden repudiated the partnership with Mr. Powell. He would be  pleased to g-et all the insurance but  would say that if the town grew up  without waterworks no company would  take risks. He described the effective  water system at Trail from a stream  no larger than Twin Creek.  Mr. Miller thought a strong opposition a healthy thing in the council. He  would like to have heard more explanations from intending- candidates on the  question of borrowing money, waterworks, sanitary arrangements, building streets, etc.  After other speakers had discussed  matters briefly a vote of thanks to the  chair brought the meeting to a close.  During the meeting Messrs. Rendell  and Guess announced that they had  withdrawn from the contest. Both  these gentleman had no desire for municipal honors and only allowed themselves to be nominated because it was  feared there would not be enough candidates to insure   a   sufficient  number  of  aldermen.    Now that   there   were  sufficient  good   men in the  field they  felt     at   liberty   to withdraw     their  names. .  In addition to the Snowshoe, Mr. R.  W. Macfarlane acting for Mr. G. D.  MacKay and associates has bonded  another well known group of claims in  Boundar}' Creek district. Owing- to  the fact that negotiations are not finally completed, the particulars of the  deal are withheld until next week.

While it is to be regretted that the  city has lost the efficient services of  Aldermen Rendell, Hamill and McKenzie, the new council is composed of  business -men who will undoubtedly administer the affairs of the city in an  enterprising- and economical manner.  The election of Mayor Wood by acclamation was to be expected. He has  been so closely identified with the progress of the city, that it was eminently  fitting that there should be no opposition to his again occupying- the position of Chief Magistrate.  The new council will be forced to  deal with several important municipal  matters during the coming- year. It  will be an easy matter to make serious  mistakes but exceedingly difficult to  afterwards make the corrections. Only  by the closest application to civic  affairs can the council hope to successfully carrjr out important public improvements.  Established 1858.  Gold Medal Awarded  At B.'C.

There is. something, loose in the man-.  agement of the C.P.R.   Its officers having   charge  of   the  British   Columbia  end of the line are   enterprising, wideawake business  men   who  voluntarily  would not  allow   the  Boundary   Greek  freight traffic to drift into the wretched  condition  of  the  present  day.    Their  hands -must be tied  or  they  would institute several reforms.    After Mr. G.  McE. Brown's visit to the district last  summer, matters ran  more  smoothly ;  but   for the  past  three  months  they  have   been   gradually   getting-  worse,  until to-day business men have  no  security  that  freight will  be  delivered  and   are, consequently���'* having   their  goods routed by the  Northern  Pacific  and Great Northern.    The C.P.R.   has  no one to blame but  its  own  management if it allows opposition lines to secure the business   of  Boundary   Creek  district.      The   merchants   here  have  turned trade in its  direction   after  receiving   poor   service,   under  promise  that that service would  be  improved.  There can be no excuse  for  the  vexatious delays of  the  past  two  months.  The roads for the greater distance have  been in excellent condition  and goods  should     have    been    delivered    here  promptly; but instead  of  this,  goods  purchased in Toronto  at  ninety  days  have  reached  Greenwood    after   payments have been made. ���<������"'.'.  If the C.P.R. is anxious to secure the  trade it should get a little more business push into its Penticton office. The  company should also have. an enterprising agent located at Greenwood,  ���not a mere automaton who will do  clerical work and nothing more, but a  man who will take some interest in  seeing that the business men of the  district get goods promptly delivered  to them. The C.P.R. Company should  also have its own freight sheds in  Greenwood and be responsible for.the  delivery of goods in the district. Under  present conditions the merchants are  handicapped in many ways. Merchandise is loaded at Penticton by freighters without regard to orders or invoices, and the consequence is that  merchants cannot keep a check on the  wholesale house, because it is sometimes 'months before a full order is delivered and payments must be made  lona: before thev can know whether the  goods delivered agree with the invoices,  If the C.P.R. Company will place a  live representative in the district and  deliver g-oods promptly and at reasonable rates, it will receive the bulk of  the trade : if it allows matters to drift  as at present, the trade will be forced  into other channels.  Mr. J.. J. -Caulfield arrived on Sunday from "Virden, Man., with a carload  of produce, from the prairie province.  Everything- arrived in good condition  and the residents of Greenwood are  now luxuriating in fat, plump chickens  and turkeys, and appetizing pork.  A masquerade carnival was held on  the rink on Monday evening. The  costumes were of a wonderful variety,  having- ban built, front plans  borrowed from ancient history or sug--  g-est.by oddities of modern days.

W'  The Snowshoe  Re-Bonded.  As was intimated in a recent issue of  The Times the Snowshoe is too valuable a property to remain idle for any  length of time* and consequently when  it became known that Patsy Clark had  thrown up the bond, the owners were  besieged with offers from representatives of capital. Mr. G. D. MacKay  who has already acquired interests in  Boundary Creek being more aggressive  fhan the others, secured the plum and  the Snowshoe is now in his control.  The deal was negotiated by Mr. I.  . H. Hallett and Mr. R. W. Macfarlane,  M. H}., Mr. MacKay's mining expert.  The final papers were signed in Spokane during the visit of Messrs. Hallett  and' Macfarlane in that city. Mr.  Macfarlane went to Vancouver to confer with his principals and will return  in a few days to take charge of the  active development work which will be  carried out on the property.0 The bond  is the largest that has ever been given  for a Boundary Creek property. The  figure is |6S,000. Of this amount 10  per cent, is to be paid in three months,  10 per cent, in six months, 40 per cent,  in 9 months and 40 per cent, in twelve  months. An average of 6 men have to  be kept continuously at work on the  property for six months. Under the  bond work: begins to-day the 15th of  January.  The Snowshoe is so well known and  has been described so of ten in The  Times that it is unnecessary to add  anything here. Its owners are Mayor  Wood who acquired W. W. Gibb's third  interest, Thos. McDonnell and  Robert  Denzler.  Provincial Mineralogist's Report.  When Mr. W. A. Carlyle, the provincial   mineralogist,   visited    Boundary  Creek district  last  summer it was distinctly understood by those  interested  in the mineral resources of the district,  that his report  would be  published  in  bulletin   form   shortly  after  his visit.  There has  been  keen  disappointment  because this has not  been  done.    The  only   reason   that can be assigned for  the provincial mineralogist not following   the  excellent  practice which obtained since he   occupied   his   present  position is  that  the  government have  become possessed of a fiit  of  economy  and as usual the convulsions are in the  wrong  direction.    It  has been decided  that the bulletins which were  published after Mr. Carlyle  visited a  district  were too expensive and the only report  published this year will be the   annual  report  that  will  be  presented to   the  house.    The    government    considered  that as  Boundary Creek district never  received and did  not  expect the same  consideration as other districts, it would  be   an   opportune time   to become economical.    We   are quite sure that Mr.  Carlyle is in no way responsible for the  innovation.    He is   too  progressive   a  gentleman to endorse a   course that is  calculated to make his work valueless.  Bvery one knows that a neatly printed   pamphlet  describing the resources  of one district attracts more   attention  than a large volume containing statis  tics and other dry material. In the  province of Ontario, the government  is alive to the importance of advertising its mineral resources. As soon as  a new discovery^QfT.mineral is made, as  soon as a new district has been invaded by the energetic prospector^ a competent mineralogist is sent there by the  government and immediately after his  examination is made, a report is issued  describing the physical features of the  district, the character of the ores and  the best means of getting into the district.  Mr. Carlyle is a mineralogist of more <-  than ordinary ability. He enjoys the  confidence of mining men and capitalists in many parts of the world. His  reports if favorable, are the best advertisement a district can receive. It is  impossible to tell what Bounda^  Creek district missed by the pigeonholing of Mr. Carlyle's report. His  descriptions of the enormous bodies of  ore in the district, the wonderfel variety of ore and the other striking feat-  tires of its mineral resources might  have enthused the investing public and*  turned, the Klondyke rush in the direction of Boundary Creek.  Setting aside the interests of the district we do hope that the government  will allow Mr. Carlyle to materially  promote the mining interests of the  province by  publishing  reports of the  districts visited  as  promptly as possible. ��� ���'".  "��� '"',.  Conimercial   Association.  The regular meeting of the Boundary  Creek Mining & Commercial Association will be held in Rendell & Co's.  hall on Wednesday evening next..  Several matters of importance which  have been placed in the hands of subcommittees will come up for discussion.  Among them being, the railway question, aid to the -hospital, the mail service and the dividing line between the  two mining divisions. The attendance at the meetings of the association  have been encouraging but there are  still many in the district who have so  far not availed themselves of the opportunity to. assist in bringing the requirements of the district to the' notice  of the proper authorities.

Owing to the delays and irregularities in the mail service the Year-Book  of British Columbia did not reach The  Times as promptly as it did the other  provincial papers. This is bur excuse  for not noticing the year book. The  book has so much valuable information concerning British Columbia that  even at this late day The Times hastens to congraulate the author, Mr. R.  E. Gosnell the provincial librarian. It  is a book which all those who are interested in the history, the industries,  the growth and development of the  province should procure at once.  The   Old  Ironsides.  The work of developing the Old Ironsides is progressing very rapidly the  shaft being down over 140 feet.
