Development Company  through its representative, Mr. P. C.  Stoess of Spokane, has also bonded a  f4 interest in the Rawhide in Greenwood, camp. The amount mentioned  in the bond was $37,500.    It is for  six  and nine months and stipulates that  active and continuous work on the property must begin by January 15th  next.  The remaining quarter interest not  included in the bond is or rather was  owned b3r Messrs. Farrell & Midgeon.  The three-quarter interest is owned by  Robert Denzler, W. W. Gibbs, Greenwood, Mr. McTnnes of Grand Prairie,  and Thos. Tye of Montana. The Rawhide lies between the Snowshoe, Gold  Drop and Curlew and contains the  same big vein of ore carrying similar  hig-h values. The Curlew, a fractional  claim owned by Mr. Denzler, is said to  be also bonded by ��� Mr. Stoess but the  report has not been confirmed.  Mr. Gibbs after the bond was closed  sold his eighth interest in the property  to Mayor Wood.   The Municipal Council of the city of  Grand Forks has at last discovered  that the collection of taxes on real estate and improvements for the year  1897 was illegal.

P.,   and forwarded to Sir Oliver Mowat,the Min-..  ister of Justice.  v Grand Forks, B. C, June 3rd, 1897.  (The Honorable Sir Oliver Mowat,  Minister of Justice, Ottawa.)���Dear  Sir : I have been requested by several  residents of this district to report to  your direct notice certain alleged abuses in connection with the administration of justice by His Honor, Judge,  Spinks, county court judge of Yale district in this province.  It isa well known fact that Judge  Spinks for the past two or three years  has not conducted himself as a gentleman holding the high office he does  should. Complaints have been made  for that period and are being made in  reference to favoritism and partiality  exhibited by Judge Spinks from the  bench, both in civil and criminal cases  where certain rings and cliques are iri-  . terested.   "-.-  It is a well recognized fact, sir, that  Judge Spinks during- the period above  mentioned has rarely, if ever, appeared at the different places appointed  through out the district for the holding  of county courts on time," but is always  from two to three days late, allowing  suitors, witnesses and persons in custody on trial for criminal offences to  wait his pleasure, thereby causing  them great loss of time traveling to  and from the place of trial and entailing great unnecessary expense.   ',.,  It has repeatedly happened that prisoners waiting trial have been held over  two or three days over the time appointed for their trial and then acquitted. A marked case of this was the  Queen vs Davis, tried here at the second last sittings of the county court,  and this sir, is not the exception ; it is  the rule with Judge Spinks.   .  It is also charged against Judge  Spinks that he violated his oath of  office in allowing influence to be used  upon him acquitting guilty men; two  marked cases of this nature have occurred in this district within the past  twelve months.  It is also an admitted fact that Judg-e  Spinks is one of the members of a  clique in Grand Forks who are owners  of the townsite and members of this  clique have been known to boast that  no action could succeed against them  while'Judge Spinks sat on the bench.  From my own knowledge, sir, I may  say that on one occasion I sat as one of  the board of license commissioners for  this district when an application came  before us bjr one of the-members of the  ring above mentioned for a retail liquor license ; the applicant was clearly  not entitled to a license and the board  refused the application. An appeal  was taken to Judge Spinks and as the  applicant belonged to this particular  ring of which Judge Spinks is an admitted member, he granted the license  in the face of the licensing- board's refusal. In conclusion, sir, let. me say  that the above are only a few of the  numerous'   charg-es   brougiit     ag-ainst  Judge Spinks ; there is g-eneral dissatisfaction among the people throughout  the whole district, and complaints have  appeared through the press on many  Occasions without avail, till at last an  innocent and long- suffering- people  have come to accept it as a condition  of things which is remediless, and must  be borne without complaint. I^et me  say, sir, that if ever a public office in  British Columbia required to be aired ;  if there was ever a case which required  a Royal Commission to issue, to enquire into these abuses which are so  flagrant and so numerous that it would  be impossible for me to enumerate  them.  Again let me say, sir, that I would  urge upon -.you the great necessity of,  issuing a commission immediately to  enquire into these abuses, as your  Honor, with your long experience in  the administration of Justice must well  know that abuses like these are dangerous to the well being of society arid  are ruinous to the best interests of the  public at larg-e.

He must therefore charge the same price to the one who  pays in one month, one or, two years, and the one who  never pays at all. It is impossible, therefore, to do justice  to  Cash Customers  on" this  basis.  His profits must of necessity be large enough to pay  running expenses, interest on the; accounts he carries on  his books, and to cover bad debts, We know from ex^  perience that the majority of the people of the Boundary  Creek country are strictly honest and will pay for every���  thing they get, and no Storekeeper will ever lose a cent  by selling to them on credit, But those are the people  who have everything to gain and nothing to lose by pur^  chasing for cash and getting their goods at the Lowest  Possible Price, AH towns and countries have their own  " deadbeats," and every business man doing a large credit  business will form the acquaintance of some of them and  make bad  debts,    WHO PAYS FOR  THESE ?

After the first day of January,  1898, we will "buy and sell for Cash, keep down expenses,  and give our Customers the benefit of the difference.  mwiimiH nMn miiiinw  DEALERS IN GENERAL MERCHANDISE,  -ft  -���1 -'i'-V 3  /  /  f  V  "^i-  A Weekly Paper published in the interests ot the Boundary Greek Mining District.  Vol, III,  GREENWOOD, B.G, SATURDAY, JANUARY 8, 1898,  70 No, 18,  V v  POSTAL   SERVICE.  F THERE} is a time when patience ceases to be a  virtue, that time has surely arrived in Greenwood,'as far as the postal service is concerned-.  The manner in which the mails have been delivered during- the past month would be discreditable to the department in the most isolated  portion of the Dominion���the Klondyke not excepted. In the frozen north they get their mail when the  weather and the condition of the trails permit. The obstacles to regular delivery are such as cannot be overcome  by human efforts and cannot be provocative of dissatisfaction. In Greenwood the stages subsidized by the-Dominion  government to convey the mails arrive with creditable  regularity���but without mails. For weeks the Grand Forks  stage appeared to have no object excepting to tantalize the  people of Greenwood by making regular daily trips and  '" bringing back the same old story, " the postmaster at Grand  Forks refuses or neglects to deliver the mails."  By both governments Greenwood and Boundary Creek  have been niggardly treated in the past with respect to  those services which ought to be furnished to a tax-paying  people; and when, through the indifference of the post-office  inspector, the inexplicable neglect of duty on the part of  the postmaster at Grand Forks, and a general looseness in  the whole mail system from Penticton to Marcus, the convenience of having mails delivered regularly has been  choked off, it is not surprising that the postoffice department  should be execrated by those who have suffered business  losses through the mail blockade.  There was really no excuse for the weeks of rebellion on  the part of the gentleman in charge of the postoffice at  .Grand Forks. If a public official in any other part of the  Dominion had rendered such service as he gave for nearly  a month, his official head would have found the basket very  quickly. The postoffice inspector has received more than  one indignant protest against the wretched mail service between these places, and he has had sufficient time to give  the matter his attention. It is true that the. mails have  been delivered more regularly during the past week,but The  Times is not satisfied to let the matter rest. We want to  see the postal service placed upon such a footing in this district that the recurrence of last month's treatment will be  impossible. The public interest demands that the postoffice  inspector exercise sufficient discipline over his officers that  they will appreciate the fact that they are public servants  not supercilious autocrats. Unless he acts promptly in this  matter an appeal will be taken to the Postmaster-General  direct.  The whole service from Penticton to Marcus should be  overhauled and placed on a footing more in consonance with  its importance and the importance of the district. Postmasters ought to receive salaries compatible with the services rendered and then there would be more encouragement  for them to do their duty. The mails are sorted in altogether too careless a fashion., Greenwood mail is placed in the  Grand Forks or through bag and it travels backwards and  forwards before it reaches its destination. A package containing important letters for Greenwood was placed in the  Grand Forks bag. They passed through Greenwood, went  back to Grand Forks, were kept there three days by the postmaster and were delivered five days after they first reached  Greenwood. This is only one of the many instances where  the public have been inconvenienced, and where the service  lias been so wretched that every one has become thoroughly  ���disgusted with it.  THAT    UNNATURAL   BOUNDARY.  Some time ago The Times respectfully requested the  Grand Forks Miner to be good enough to tell the public if  in its opinion the boundary line between the mining divisions of Kettle river and Grand Forks should be clearly defined. After a paragraph of extraneous matter complimentary to this paper, the Miner has graciously condescended to state that "the Miner certainly thinks the boundary  line ought to be clearly defined."  The government can now know how inconvenient a thing  it is to listen to the specious pleadings of townsite boomers.  Had the Minister of Mines accepted the advice of the general public who petitioned to have the Fourth of July Creek  made the Boundary line, instead of lending his ear to those  who had some interest in the town of Grand Forks, the expense of marking an imaginary boundary line could have  been avoided. That the boundary^ line must be marked or  changed is apparent to every one���even to the Grand  Forks Miner. The mining recorders, gold commissioner,  surveyors and claim owners, are always in a quandary to  know in which division are the claims located supposedly  near the undefined boundary. Some claims are cut in two  by the line and to avoid legal difficulties owners have deposited the necessary money for recording at the office at  Grand Forks and the office at Midway. r'  Already ^several lawsuits have been commenced on account of disputes arising regarding the exact position of  this dividing line. The government must do something.  The boundary line must be discarded for one more distinct  or monuments must be erected to define the present one. In  either case we do not envy the government the position in  which it has been placedby the action of the Minister of  Mines. The cost of properly marking the boundary line  will be no small sum and if the government decides to  change to Fourth of July Creek it will earn the ill will of  those in whose interest the absurd boundary was made.  The latter would be the wiser and cheaper course, for, to use  Peter McCallum's words, " the Grand Forks clique " have  pretty much lost any reputations which they possessed and  are without political influence.  t'P  t'P  ���5jS��  THE GREENWOOD HOSPITAL.  There is no institution in the whole of Southern Yale  which deserves more and receives less encouragement than  the Greenwood hospital. For excellent medical attendance,  for careful nursing, cleanliness and good sanitary arrangements, its good name has traveled far beyond the limits of  the.district. This fame, while in many cases satisfactory, brings with it unprofitable drawbacks. When a person  living in Boundary Creek, Midway, Camp McKinney, or  points beyond becomes ill and cannot receive proper home  attention, he at once becomes imbued with the idea that the  Greenwood hospital is for him a city of refuge and he is  straightway brought there. In some instances he has the  necessary money to pay for nursing-and medical attendance  but in the majority of cases he has not. So frequent have  the latter cases become that the hospital is now almost a  charitable institution maintained by Dr. Jakes for the benefit of the sick poor.  There are of course cases for which the doctor is paid for  the services rendered, but the profits from a hospital are  small under the most favorable circumstances. Why then  should the cost of caring for the sick poor be saddled on a  man who has placed his medical skill at the service of the  public? Dr. Jakes is too good a medical man for the district to lose but he must have a private gold mine if he can *>:ttMfVij��*M;i *���tf ��*���...��. W-*b,*��wii*lJ�� tLn^*rjnf��'<��.vX{y\v.^r�� txm  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  afford to treat gratuitously all that apply to him for assistance. And this  can be said to his credit, that under no  circumstances has a sick person been  turned away from the hospital.  Now it is bad enough for the Greenwood hospital to be forced to g-ive free  medical treatment but the hospital is  not unknown across the International  boundary line.. Eureka and other reservation points send for treatment those  who have no claims upon Dr. Jakes excepting those of humanity.  No one will say  that it is rig-ht that  all the cost of caring for  the homeless  sick should be  saddled  on Dr.  Jakes.  The improvident and those who are indigent through no fault of their   own  are indigenous  or  imported  to  eveiy  community and it is clearl}'the  duty  of the  state, not of the  individual,   to  assume the responsibilit/y for their care  and control.  ,;.-.,. The provincial government has dealt  generousl3r with every, hospital  in  the  province excepting- the  one  located in  Greenwood and no  hospital ��was more  worthy of consideration.    From Christina Lake to Keremeos,  from reservation points  to   Penticton, is   a larger  area of  country   than   probably-   any  other hospital draws from.    Its a country where those who have  money  seldom get sick and where those who have  none have a inconvenient habit of getting- ill or'-'getting-  injured.    The government should not allow these to be a  charge upon  Dr.  Jakes.    A reference,,  to the act  passed at the last session of  the legislature will show that $10,000 a  year was voted for the Jubilee hospital  at Victoria ;  $4,000 for the   hospital at  New Westminster ; $4,500 for Nanaimo  hospital;   $2,000   for Golden hospital ;  $3,000 for Nelson, hospital;   $1,000   for  Union   hospital;   $1,000   for a  Refuge  Home and nothing   for  the Greenwood  hospital.'  .. Hon. G. B. Martin when he visited  Greenwood last summer was so well  pleased with the hospital that he promised to use his good offices in securing-  for it that consideration to which it is  entitled. We hope that lie will make  g-ood that promise and that when the  estimates are prepared for 1898���-99. at  least $3,000 will appear for the Greenwood hospital.  The  Railway   Situation.  The   Spokesman-Review   discussing*  the railway situation says :  41 On this side of the boundaiw line it  seems probable, in'view.of the expressed determination of President Corbiu  of the Spokane Falls & Northern rail-  wax-, that a line will be put into the  Boundary creek country, thus opening-  tip a region that has made marvelous  progress despite lack of proper transportation facilities, and has brilliant  prospects 'before it. Connected with  Spokane as it will be by the proposed  railway, the benefit to accrue to this  city by the opening- tip of the region  will be incalculable."

Write for  new   Map   of   the  Kootenay  country, THE   BOUNDARY   CRE EK   TIME"S/  The   Tin Horn Mine.  A correspondent has the following to  say regarding   the  Tin  Horn mine at  -' Fairview. - ���; v., - .<- ���,  *' The Tin  Horn company,  of Fair-  view,   ran  through  a quantity of low  grade rock from their lower  tunnel, on  the advice of their  superintendent, for  some  thirteen  days.    The   result was  insignificant,   and  they  shifted   their  operations  to  the upper tunnel, where  more  depth  is  indicated.    The result  was extremely satisfactory to the company, as the gold showed up at once, in  the amalgam.    After running five days  on rock  from   the  upper dump, where  some 10,000 tons are  piled,  their  van-  ners broke, and the plates were not doing their work owing to extremely cold  weather and insufficient heating.    But  the  five  days'   clean-up showed $1,000  on the plates.    As the Tin  Horn ore is  but 50 per cent, free milling it is confidently   estimated   that   there   will be  another    $1,000   in   the   concentrates.  Since  the: clean-up  steam pipes   have  been  put  in  the   mill,   which will be  heated from the boiler.    The pipes run.  under the plates and close  to  the van-  ners,   and  the  mill has been running  half pow^r for  several  days.    On the  1st   of  January   water  from  another  creek will be turned on, and some forty  tons a day will be put through, instead  of four tons a day, as heretofore."  An  Adjourned Meeting,  The Board of Eicehsing Commissioners will hold an adjourned meeting in  Rendell & Co's. hall on Monday morning next at 10 o'clock for -the purpose  of granting licenses to hotels. The  applicants are busy conforming with  suggestions of the board to furnish fire  escapes and?are decorating the rear of  their hotels and verandahs with ladders  and ropes. L,ast Sunday the fiat went  forth that the provisions of the Sunday  closing of saloons must.be observed  and consequently the thirsty found it  necessary to take their liquor with their  meals.  Progress in Mining.  The Spokesman-Review publishes a  review of the progress made in the development of Kootenay mines during  the year. The output for Kootena}r  for the year was $8,136,696, or more  than the aggregate output of all the  lode mines in B.C. for the ten previous  years, which was $8,067,322. The Review sa.ys :  To show what great strides the division has made, it may be said that  the increase in the production of the  precious metals of 1896 over 1895 was  72 per cent.    The increase of 1897 over  1896 was 150 per cent.    The increase of  1897 over 1895 was 330 per cent. With  the foregoing figures as a basis, it is  more than certain that the output of  1897 will be more than doubled during-  the present year.  A   New   Firm.  Mr. W. B. Rickards and S. Benner-  man of Midway have entered into a  partnership. They will do a general  real estate, mining and insurance business. The firm is also agents for the  Taylor safe. Both members of the  firm are well and favorably known and  any commission business can be safely  entrusted to them.

The Foresters' Banquet was another  striking- evidence of the fact that  Greenwood is growing- and growing  rapidly. Twelve months ago it would  have been simply impossible to get  half a hundred people to attend an entertainment of that nature,but a larger  number than that crowded into' the  cosy dining room,of the Imperial hotel  on Thursday evening. The number  would have been greater, too, but those  who had intended coming from Midway were detained by the celebration  of the wedding of Mr. McAuley and  Miss Hamill.  Before adjourning- to the supper-room  the Foresters held a lodge meeting  when Court-Deputy R. Smailes installed the officers for the current year. A  list of the elected officers has already  been published. At nine o'clock the  doors of the dining room were thrown  open and soon every seat was filled.,  Mr. George A. Gue��ss, the newly installed Chief Ranger occupied the chair  while J. C. Goupil the Vice-Chief Ranger acted as vice-L-hairmari.  Porter's orchestra was in attendance  and their music appeared to make the  turkey and pudding; still more appetizing-. The supper was prepared by D.  W. Hicks of the Cosmopolitan restaurant and was satisfactory in every: way.  The menu was as follows :  Oysters���New York Selects.  Soiip���Consomme.  Fish���Sainton a la Creole.  0 Boiled���Ham ; Mutton, mint sauce.  Roasts���Turkey, cranberry sauce ;   Spring-  Chicken, herb dressing-.

Assorted Cakes, Lemon Ice, Coffee, Cocoa, Tea,  Fruit, Nuts, Raisins, etc.  It was nearly   eleven  o'clock  before  the     toast   list    was     reached.    The  Chairman    proposed  the    to .sts,    the  "Queen " and, the   "President of the  United . States " and   Mr.   Harlan the  "I. O. F. "to the  latter Mr. Guess and  Mr. Goupil responded.    " SUter Societies " was proposed by D. Ross and Mr.  Black responded on behalf of  th.s Masons and Mr. Smailes  and  Mr. Evans  on behalf of the Oddfellows.   '" Greenwood " was proposed ty W. M. Law of  Anaconda and the responses came from  Aldermen  G.   Arthur  Rendell  and C.  Scott    Galloway.    E-   A.    Bielenberg  proposed   "Boundary  Creek District"  and.  D.   Ross   and  E.   M. E.   Manns  responded.    "Anaconda,   Midway and  Grand Forks "   were  then toasted, the  proposer   being   J.   C.   Goupil and the  responses came from Frank Miller and  A. H. L/awder.    " The  Railway "  was  proposed by W. M. Law and Thos. McDonnell   and   S.   Breslauer responded.  E.   A.    Bielenberg-   coupled   with   the  " Ladies " the names of G. A.   Rendell  and W. M. Law in whom they had able  champions.    " Ourselves"      and     the  " Chairman " and the " Host " concluded the toast list. ,    .  Interspersed between the toasts were  capital songs and .stories. Messrs.  Lawder, Harlan, Galloway, Wilbur,  Humphrey, Frost, Bielenberg, J. W.  Nelson   and  others  were  heard  more  than once in comic, sentimental and  patriotic- songs. Fraiik Miller kept  those present roaring- with laughter by  his inimitable stories, excellently told.  R. Breslauer and others of the jolly  crowd also contributed to the evening's  fun by a fund of jokes and humorous  anecdotes. It was nearly three o?clock  before Aid. Galloway's rich voice led  the company in singing " Auld Lang\  Syne." >.  The   Imperial    hotel   dining   room,  which was kindly placed at the disposal of the, Foresters by Messrs. Graham  & Perr3S is well adapted for a  gathering of this nature.  Mining and  Real   Estate  Deal.  Mr. G. R.

There  was a fair, attendance and matters of  great public  interest were  considered.  Mr. Thos. Hardy who presided thanked the association for the honor confer-  ed upon ilim in being elected president.  He considered the organization of the  association a step in the right direction. If it received the support it ought  to receive, it would do for Greenwood  and Boundary Creek what , a Board of  Trade does for larger cities. In these  days it is necessary for the people to  unite in, order that they niaj* protect  their own interests and secure for the  district the consideration to which it is  entitled. Isolated as Boundaiw Creek  is from the seat of g-overnment and  trade centres the need of such an association is very great.  Mr. Hardy instanced iriany matters  which required the attention of the  association, notably the wretched mail  service and the transportation of  freig-ht from Penticton. He pointed  out that by refusing to route freight  over the C. P. R. they succeeded in getting* Geo. Mclv. Brown to come and see  what the matter was.  He succeeded in unraveling some of  the freig-ht tangles but the position, is  now worse than it ever was and there  is no security that freig'ht routed via  Penticton will ever reach here. Besides  the price for hauling has gone up to  $10 a ton. He suggested the old remedy and to keep up the boycott until the  C. P. R. built a warehouse on Boundary Creek and delivered freig-ht there.  The fault in these matters lay principally with the merchants of Boundary  Creek.    Thev had the remedy in  their  own hands. Mr. Hardy also urg-ed  that steps be taken to immediately advertise the district and after again  thanking- the members he resumed his  seat amid applause.  Messrs. W. M. Law, Anaconda, G.  Arthur Rendell, Greenwood, and W. B.  Rickards, Midway, were elected members of the association.  The road committee to whom was referred the duty of furnishing- Mr. Graham with the necessary information  regarding the necessity for the roads  for which appropriations were asked,:  reported through the secretary that a  letter had been drafted to be forwarded to Mr: Graham. The letter was then  read. It gives an interesting account  of the camps to which the roads are required. The letter was on motion accepted and the committee thanked for  their labors.  Mayor Wood suggested that the  necessity for an appropriation for the  hospital be again drawn to the notice  of the government and Mr. Graham.  -Hon. Mr. Martin had promised to look  after the -matter-but no harm would be  done by again calling their attention  to the matter. After a short discussion  in which all the speakers spoke in favor of the appropriation, Messrs. Wood,  Black and Ross were appointed a subcommittee to prepare the necessary  memorial.  . : The question of railways was next  -.discussed. Mayor Wood sug-gested  that a monster petition be gotten up to  be '.signed by everybody from Hope to  the Columbia river. He also sug-gested  'as -air alternative- that Mr. Corbin  be supported ih his efforts to secure a  charter. .- ,...-..'..:. .v.-.,,: .-.-������������  ; Mr. Ross pointed out that it would  be'necessary for the people of Boundary Creek to make a choice. If they  were going-, to support Corbin, it was  not at all likely that they would receive  much encouragement from those, in the  vicinity of Hope mountains. He believed that as Mr  for a Dominion charter and  of way only, that he should receive  every encouragement. It would certainly be anything- but in the interest  of the district and province to oppose  the g-ranting of n charter for a railway  which asked for no public aid.  After further discussion it was decided on motion of Mayor Wood, to refer  the railway question to a sub-committee consisting of Messrs. Keffer, Black  and Galloway who were instructed to  prepare the memorials to the provincial and federal governments setting-  forth the resources and isolated condition of the district and advocating- the  granting of a charter to Mr. Corbin.  The consideration of the boundaiw  line between mining- divisions, the  transportation of freight and advertising the district was deferred,and refer-  ed to sub-committees who are to report  at the next regular meeting. The association adjourned at 10 o'clock.  Corbin was asking  free right  The work on the Anchor and Enterprise in L/ong Xake camp is progressing- rapidly under the foremanship of  George B. I<eyson.

There are two candidates spoken of for  the office of mayor, Mr. Robert Hewitt,  of the Grand Forks brewery and Mr.  A. K. Manly. Both are g*ood and reliable business men and either would  make a g-ood mayor, but some of the  electors appear to think that Mr. Manly  is only keeping the seat warm for his  brother, Mayor Manly. In that event,  the electors of Grand Forks if they  consult their own interests will elect  Mr. Hewitt.  Established 185S.  Gold Medal Awarded  At B. C. Agricultural Exhibition  1895 and 1896.

V  r  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  R. L. Cawston, the Keremeos cattle  king-, paid Greenwood a visit last week  J. Porter is erecting- a residence near  Mr. C. M. Shaw's at the upper end of  the town.  Mr. W. B. Patoii has purchased from  Geo. McKague the lot adjoining the  school house.  Mr. McGrath; who had his shoulder  dislocated at the Old Ironsides mine  last�� week, is recovering rapidly.  Mr. R. W. Macfarlane, M.E., is calling for tenders for sinking a shaft on,  the C. Q. D. mineral claim in Long-  Lake camp.  \ The Times has received a copy of  the Christmas number of the Anaconda  Standard. Its 40 pages are full of interesting matter.  J. P. McLeod, of Midway, won the  gold watch raffled at the Pioneer on  Wednesday evening. The gold ring  was won by Scott McRae.  Mr. and Mrs. "J. Plott desire to thank  Dr. Jakes and the people of Greenwood  for the great kindness and attention  received during-their illness.  Mr. Fred Shonquist has. returned  from a visit to Gearing, Nebraska.  His brother Ed has almost fully recovered from his recent severe illness.  Mr. Sydney W. Johnson, P. L. S.,  will be absent from the district for  about two months. He is looking after  some business interests in Kootenay.  Miss Anderson, a trained and experienced nurse, arrived from Montreal  on Friday week, to accept the position  of matron of the Greenwood hospital.  Aid. Barrett has decided to. make the  third storey of his new block into a  hall. There is sufficient space to make  a hall capable of holding several hundred people.  The installation of officers in the  Boundary Valley Lodge, I. O. O. F.,  was postponed from last Tuesday evening for one week owing to the absence  in Spokane of the District Deputy, I.  H. Hallett.  Paul Fisher lost the second and third  fingers of his right hand while at the  sawmiifoil New Year's Day. He was  using the rip saw when his hand slipped with the above result. Mr. Fisher  was taken to the hospital.  The dance held at Lind's hall on  New Year's eve was a decided success.  About fifty couples were present. The  music was good and the management  saw that all present enjoyed themselves. The supper at the Palace hotel  left nothing to be desired.  The Greenwood Skating- Rink Association has decided to hold an ice carnival on Monday evening next, with a  view to wiping out the small indebtedness against the rink. Some amusing  and special features will be introduce.:].  Holders.of tickets as well as others will  be charged an  admission fee.  On Thursday, Dec. 28, E. M. Cud-  worth was charged before R. G. Sidlev  with an infraction of the g-ame law in  that he exposed for sale a deer with the  head off. Cudworth pleaded guilty but  claimed   he did   it   in   ic-norance, as he  K.J i  thought he could kill and dispose of  an\- number up to ten and did not know  he was breaking- the law by cutting-the  lie ad off. The prosecutor, Mr. Gardom  of Midway, asked   the court   to   inflict  only a nominal fine as he was satisfied  Mr. Cudworth . was. telling- the truth.  Under these circumstances the fine was  fixed at $5 or one month's imprisonment.  The trustees of the Greenwood public school have not yet secured the  services of a teacher and consequently  the school children are enjoying an extended holiday.  It is quite probable that Mr. Heinze  will sell the Columbia & Western and  all his British Columbia interests to  the C. P. R. It is reported that further negotiations are now in progress.  Police Magistrate Hallett, R. W.  Macfarlane and W. T. Smith left for  Spokane on Sunday last. It is understood that Messrs. Hallett and Macfar-  lane's trip is in connection with an important mining deal.   ,  It is reported that the Dominion government has sent a veterinary surgeon  into the district to inquire into the conduct of Dr. Hickingbottom during his  visit here. The officer referred to  reached Grand Forks this week.  J. D. Anderson, C. E., of Trail, B. C.  was among the visitors to Greenwood  this week. Mr. Anderson had just returned from above Rock Creek where  he surveyed the Commonwealth Group  for Mr. Perkins and others of Rossland. The Commonwealth is located  on the main Kettle river about six  miles above the  mouth of Rock Creek.  The new Imperial hotel will be opened on the 15th inst. The offices, dining  room, barroom, and bed rooms have  been expensively and comfortably  furnished and the house will be conducted by Messrs. Perry and Graham  in a first class manner. Mr. Bradshaw  who was connected with the best hotel,  in Trail will have charge of the bar.  He comes well recommended.  McAULEY-HAMILL.  Mr. Thos. McAuley and Miss Amelia  Hamill were married at the Boundary  Hotel, Midway, on Thursday last, Rev.  Father Rivers of Rossland officiating.  The marriage was a quiet one, only a  few of the friends of the contracting  parties being present. Both Mr. and  Mrs. McAuley are well known throughout the district. Mr. McAuley is one  of the proprietors of the Boundary-  Hotel and Mrs. McAuley up to a few  days before the marriage was matron  of the Greenwood hospital. She is a  sister of Aid. Hamill of Greenwood.  The Times joins their many friends in  extending congratulations.  The  Enterprise.  Mr. A. Cameron of the Enterprise  mine in Long Lake camp is exhibiting  some ex reeciingly rich specimens from  that property.    They were taken   from  ��� the bottom of the 35-foot shaft in which  ��� men are now busy sinking. Free g'old.  can be plainly seen in the samples.  Some of the samples have been sent  east to Mr. J. P. McKenzie. who has  the Anchor and Enterprise under bond  and if he shows them to the mining-  men of the east the}- are almost sure to  become as excited over free milling-  properties in Long Lake camp as th.e3r  have over the placet-mines of the Klon-  dvke.

The British American Corporation  organized by Lieutenant-Governor C.  H. Mcintosh, of the Northwest territories, is the largest and most successful  mining company org-anized in London  for some time. Lord Duffer in is chairman of the board. The capital 0is  placed at $7,500,000 which was immediately subscribed when offered to the  public. The company has already secured some of the best properties in  Trail ^creek and it is reported that they  have an option on the LeRoi. It is  quite possible that as the company is  seeking good properties they will send  their experts into Boundary - Creek district.  Another change has been made in  the mail schedule. Acting- under instructions from the Postoffice Inspector, the Penticton mails arrive here at  5 p. m. and depart the following morning at 8 a. m. The Marcus mails are  supposed to reach here at 6 p .m. daily  and depart at 8 a. m. daily.

The oil which diplomatic and affable  Geo. Mel/. Brown, the executive officer  of the C. P. R., poured on the  troubled  waters has been consumed and a regular cyclone has been generated by  the  merchants     of   Boundary    Creek.    It  threatens to carry J. W. Bassett, the C.  P. R. freighter, back to Trail and send  the much beloved   Seadding, the C. P.  R.   freight   sheds, and   possibly    the  steamer, to the   bottom   of Okanagan  I^ake.    The Brandon & Golden Crown  Company have joined in the fight with  the merchants  and  things  have been  decidedly hot in freight circles for the  past few  weeks.    The machinery   for  the Golden Crown should have been at  the mine over a; month ago but instead  of sending it to Marcus,   the C.  P. R.  sent the machinery to Penticton.    Bassett was unable  or unwilling to move  it promptly and the company informed  the Ingersoll-Sargent people that they  would   refuse   to receive  the plant as  they had not lived up to the time limit  in  the  contract.    The  Ingersoll Company got after the C. P.  R.  and the G.  P. R.   got  after Bassett.    Allen Cameron with his Celtic ire at a fever heat  came down to Penticton and from there  to  McCuddy's,   trying  to   instil   some  energy    into   the   freighters   but  the  machinery has not yet appeared.    It is  quite possible  that the Golden Crown  Company will refuse to accept it  when  it does come.  The merchants are also on the warpath. Christmas goods, they say, were  delayed so long at Penticton that they  reached Greenwood after the trade was  over. Other goods were similarly  treated, and to make matters worse the  rate was increased to 2 cents a   pound.  The merchants have sent explicit instructions to wholesalers that until  further notice they will refuse to accept  fany orders shipped via Penticton. All  goods must, be shipped via Marcus.  This is practically boycotting- the C.  P. R. If Mr. Brown ventures into  Boundary Creek again, even his capacitor smoothing freight troubles will  be taxed to the utmost.  County Court.  o.

A proclamation has been issued calling- the members of the legislature tog-ether for the transaction of business  on Wednesday, February 10th. This is  about the time the legislature, .was convened last year. ^  The session will doubtless be an  eventful one. There will probably be  imposing- ceremonies in connection  with the opening-of the new legislative  hall where the members will deliberate  upon public matters.  Legislation will be introduced of  considerable importance. It is scarcely  possible that the government will attempt to go to the country next year  without first passing a redistribution  bill. Such a measure is sure to occasion long discussions and a party  fight. Since last session the goverhr  merit forces have been weakened by  the desertion of Hon. I). W. Higgins  and J. Kellie,��M. P. P. On the floor  of the house Mr. Higgins will prove an  aggressive opponent and with a narrow majority it will require more generalship thanMr. Turner possesses to  keep his government from defeat. The  only ray of hope that is left for the  government is the fact that last session  thev were defeated and did not resign  and this session they may probabl3r  pursue a similar bourse. After the  election of a new speaker the govern-  ; ment will be left with a majority of  four���scarcely a safe number.  Railway and other legislation of vital Interest to the province will also  come up for consideration.  The  Railway   Petition.  The good people of Grand Forks  are  circulating a petition addressed to the  Speaker and Members of  the House of  Commons of the Dominion of  Canada,  praying for such action as  will  secure  the immediate  construction  of a   railway through Kettle river and Boundary  Creek districts.    The -people  of Grand  Forks are to be commended  for  their  zeal in the interests of the  district but  we cannot say that we are greatly  impressed with the verbiage of  the  peti- "  tion.    It is reported   that   the  petition  was first addressed to the Speaker and  members of the provincial  legislature.  A  certain   wise   man   from  the   west  pointed  out  the   applications for railway charters were being- made  to  the  Dominion House.    Those in   charge of  the petition with that versatility which  is characteristic of the town, struck out  " the Speaker and Members of the Provincial Legislature," and   inserted  instead "the Speaker and Members of the  House of Commons."    The  result   is a  petition which   is   exceedingly provincial in its tone and which does   not appeal to the Members   of  the  House  of  Commons on the broad .grounds of  national interest. If those desiring aid for  railways  from   the   Dominion   parliament  expect   success,   they  must  use  stronger arguments than " the best interests of the province " and that " the  petitioners believe that the   district   is  rich   in   precious   metals   the  development of which would   soon tend to recompense the province for atnr   expense  or   liabilitj'  in rendering-   such assistance."

Fisher, of the Boundary Creek  Milling- & -L, umber Gompany, has erected the! necessary buildings and, secured  the plant for bottling- beer from the  Rossland brewery, of: which Mr. Blue  is president. The work of bottling be-  g^an this week, and Greenwoodites can  now enjoy excellent home-bottled beer.  The beer is sent here in bulk and is the  product of a brewery which has established a name for the excellence of the  beverag-e which it manufactures. The  cellar in which the beer will be stored  is entirely underground, and is so arranged that neither heat nor cold will  affect the beer. The industry will give  employment to several men, and for  this reason is entitled to the patron ag-e  of those who enjoy a good glass of beer.  A Lively Shooting Scrape.  Bad whiskey, the absence of officers  of the law, and the g-eneral looseness  which prevails in the vicinity of Eureka, Wash., were responsible for a serious shooting affray in that mining-  camp on Friday last. Three men were  wounded, and one of them, Frank  Gottfreidsen, is in the Greenwood hospital with his elbow splintered by a  rifle bullet and a flesh wound in the  other arm. Gottfreidsen was brought  to the hospital on Sunday.  It is a difficult matter to learn the  particulars, but it appears that early  Tuesdaj7 morning- Gottfreidsen, !La  Fleur and others were in Bennett's saloon at Eureka. Bennett and. Gottfreidsen got into a dispute about claim  jumping- and words led to blows. Bennett got the better of the fight, and  then Gottfreidsen pulled a six-shooter  and opened fire. Before the gun could  be taken from him he succeeded in  wounding" his antagonist in the cheek.  Bennett went off to g"et the wound  dressed, and Gottfreidsen left the house  at the same time. I^ater in the day  Gottfreidsen returned for his coat and  the quarrel was started anew. This  time Bennett used a repeating Winchester and opened fire. Gottfreidsen  g-rabbed the barrel of the Winchester,  but Bennett continued firing and almost shot the clothes off Gottfreidsen's  body. He appeared to have a charmed  life, however, for he escaped with the  two wounds mentioned. L/a Fleur tried  to stop the shooting- and was rewarded  by a bullet from the Winchester. His  wound is not dangerous.  4|* <?4g�� e$f$ e4|% e��& "SW* ew�� ew* ew* zjb* ew�� e4|e ��w�� sw* cw* ��W�� ��w�� ��** <?*�� **%* <sWi ^s*  Jenekes Machine Co. ::  Canadian Rand Drill Co.
