RAILWAY    PETITIONS.  tfP  HE} PETITION which is given below has been circulated during- the week and  has received many signatures.  O      It was prepared by a committee representing- the residents of Greenwood, Anaconda, Midway and  other parts  of the district.    It concisely embodies the views   of   the   people   on   the   question  of railway construction and should  receive the signature of every one interested in the development of Boundary Creek.    The petition reads as follows :  : to the honourabu xhe speaker and membrrs of the house op commons of the' dominion ok canada  . in Parliament assembled : . ��� , . ,"..���. :'.\  Your Petitioners, who are residents of the Boundary Creek district, in British Columbia, which includes the  City of Greenwood, Midway, Boundary Falls and Anaconda, Humbly Sheweth : ; r  Whereas applications have been made heretofore to the Dominion Parliament and the Legislative Assembly  of the Province cof British Columbia for charters for railways to and through said '"'district, and the said Legislative  Assembly of British Columbia having* in view the necessity for and benefit to the Province generally of a railway  through this section, has granted not only charters for the construction of same, but has enacted legislation pledging  the credit of the Province for large cash subsidies and extensive land grants to assist in their construction, and so far  no actual construction has been commenced ; and  Whereas it is absolutely necessary that we should have railway transportation to enable the getting in of  mining machinery and the shipment of ores..; and    ��  Whereas there are in this district niines which have large quantities of ores, both high and low grade, now  lying on the dumps or being blocked out in the niines, awaiting the time when transportation by means of a railway  shall be afforded ;   and  Whereas much capital has been invested in the development"of the mines,and large amounts are now being  so invested with the exjjectation of having transportation facilities to ship the ores to market; and  Whereas private enterprise: has developed not only many of the mines but has also established towns in the  district, the prosperity of which, together with that of farmers and settlers, is entirely dependent on the mining  industry:;.-..and   .' .   ." ������ ��� '-V:'   "  Whereas the time has arrived when the inhabitants of this district are of the opinion that any conarpany  desiring a charter to build and operate a railway through the district should be granted every facility to do so; and are  weary of parties seeking charters, land grants and bonuses, and not fulfilling their moral obligations to such an extent  that the district is still without a railway :  Therefore your Petitioners humbi,y pray:  That for the benefit of the country at large, and this section of the Province of British Columbia in particular,  your Honourable Body will grant a charter to any company applying for the same to build a railway to this section,  and particularly to The Kettle River Valley Railway Company. Your petitioners mention this company, as they  believe that it will immediately commence construction upon being granted the right to do so ; at the same time your  X>etitioners pray that no other company shall be debarred from constructing a railway into the district upon similar  terms.t And your petitioners are of the opinion that immediate construction should be a condition incident to the  granting of any charter. And your petitioners are of the opinion that the interests of the district demand that a  charter be granted to The Kettle River Valley Railway Company because, in the event of another railway being built  into the' district, it will give the advantage of competitive rates and place this district in as favorable a position as the  Rossland and Kootenay sections. And your .petitioners pray that another of the conditions incident to securing- a  ' charter by The Kettle River Valley Railway Company shall be an agreement by which the Company undertakes to  deliver ores from this district to any smelters on the Columbia River, in British Columbia, at as low a rate as it will  deliver ores to smelters on the Columbia River in the United States.  And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will evei: pray, etc.  A petition from the mine owners of the district is also being circulated. It will receive the signature of several prominent men who are interested in the district, including Hon. T. Mayne Daly, Bx-Minister of the Interior, Hon. Geo. 1$.  Foster, lOx-Minister of Finance, Rufus Pope, M. P., Senator Kirchoffer and others.  THEIR     PIRST    MEETING.  The first meeting of the City.Council for the }'ear 1898 was held in Reiidell & Co's. hall on Monday evening last.  All the members were present. Police Magistrate Hallett before the meeting administered the oath of office, to His  Worship, Mayor Wood, and Aldermen Galloway, Paton, Kerr, Barrett and Phelan. Aid. Perry who was unavoidabl}'  detained until after, the oath was administered was not sworn in until Tuesday. After the aldermen took their seats at  the council board, His Worship, Mayor Wood, congratulated them upon their election. He expressed his pleasure at  seeing so many old faces and he was sure that during the year the best efforts would be put forth to make the town one  of enterprise and progress.  The minutes of the last meeting of the last council were read and confirmed and   a  communication  from Returninir  Officer Black giving an official report of the election was received and filed.    Mr. G. R. Naden, manager of  the Bealey"  Investment & Trust Compaq', was appointed to audit the treasurer's books for 1897.   On motion of Aid. Phelan seconded by Aid. Kerr, the temporary loan and interest amounting to $509.7vS was ordered paid as was also the returning officer's fee on motion of Aid. Galloway, seconded   by   Aid.  Paton.    George,  McKague  was granted permission to lay a  water pipe along Greenwood street and Copper to the barber shop which he is about to erect next to the Windsor hotel.  In a letter to the council, the city clerk pointed out that with the increased business the council will transact during  the year, it would be impracticable for one person to hold the office of city clerk, treasurer, collector, assessor and clerk  of the board of licensing commissioners. The council agreed with this view and the clerk was instructed to call for applications for the office of constable and collector combined and also the office of treasurer. The clerk was also instructed to prepare a resolution favoring the granting of a charter to the Kettle River Valley Railway Company.  Aid. Phelan gave notice that at the next regular meeting of the council he would introduce a temporary loan by-law.  This course was deemed necessary as it will be June at least before real estate taxes can be collected. On motion of  Aid. Barrett seconlei by Aid. Phelan the council decided to meet every Monday evening until further notice. The  council then adjourned until Friday morning at 10 o'clock.

The last regular meeting- of the  Boundary Creek Mining- & Commercial  Association was the best attended since  the association was reorganized. Several of those present were elected members for the first time.  In connection with an article in the  News-Advertiser reflecting upon the  association and to which The Times  has already called attention, Messrs.  Thos. Hard}\ the president of the association, His Worship Mayor Wood,  and Mr. G. R. Naden, the treasurer of  the association, were appointed a com-  mittee to deny the insinuations contained in the article. They were asked(  to write to the editor of the News-Advertiser over their own signatures.  Mr. Jacobs the author of the article,  admitted that as far as the interests of  the association were, concerned he had  made an error but that otherwise he  felt justified in offering- the criticisms  contained therein. He intimated that  as the association had shown considerable feeling- on account of the article  he would tender his resignation as secretary before the next meeting. The  matter then dropped.  The committee on railways reported  that the g-eneral committee assisted by  gentlemen from Midway had prepared  the petition which is being circulated  and sugg-ested that the association pass  a resolution endorsing the petition.  The committee were instructed to prepare .such a resolution, to be signed by  the president and secretai*Ar and for-'"  warded to Sir Wilfrid Eaurier, Hon.  Mr. Blair and Hewitt Bostock, M. P.  The other sub-committees not being-  ready to report asked for further time.  This was granted and the association  then adjourned for two weeks.  County   Court   in    Greenwood.  For some time past an effort has  been made to secure the holding- of  county court at Greenwood. Since  there is now a provincial court house  in the city and a government officer who is competent to act as a  deputy registrar, there can be no good  excuse for not holding- sittings of the  county court here.  At the last sitting of the County  court in Midway six of seven cases  were those in which all the parties interested resided in Greenwood. The  lawyers retained by either or both sides  were Greenwood lawyers and the witnesses were nearly ..all from Greenwood. It can be readily understood  that the fact that all those connected  with cases are compelled to go to Midway increases the cost of litigation.  We feel quite sure that His Honor,  Judge Spinks will offer no objection to  court being* held at Greenwood.  The Boundary Creek Mining & Commercial Association should use its influence towards securing the necessary  change.  Ex-Mayor Templeton, of Vancouver,  who was defeated in the recent municipal election died suddenly of apoplexy on Sunday last. Mr. Temple-  ton "was well known throughout the  province. He visited Greenwood in  company with G. R. Maxwell, M. P.. |  last summer.  Rossland.  Greenwood  LIMITED    LIABILITY.  2  Financial & Insurance Agents  GEO.   R.

COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD CITY. B.C. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES.  ! ��wranrraacax?sg?gaL��gyjB.����yr.s��'g^^  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  Mr. W.  J.   Snodgrass   of   Okanagan  Falls has returned from a   visit to Ore  gon.  Mr. R.  engineer,  W.   Macfarlane,  returned from  the coast  the mining  on  Wednesday.  Mn'A. H..Harrison of theB. C. mine  is calling- for tenders for several hundred cords of wood to be delivered at the  'mine.'.  FYR. Mendenhall, general agent for  the Jenckes Machine Company & Canadian Rand Drill Company, returned to  Rossland on Thursda3r.  Mr. J. T. McDonald the U. S. Customs officer at Oro was a visitor to  Greenwood this week. He was accompanied by Mrs. McDonald.  Rev. Henry Irving of Rossland paid  Greenwood one of his periodical visits  this week. He conducted Church of  England services in the schoolhouse  on Wednesday evening.  Mr. W. T. Smith returned from Camp  McKinney on Wednesday where he  obtained numerous signatures to the  railway petition. He reports th-it the  camp is booming; the recent rich strike  oh the  Cariboo  having  increased  the  confidence in this rich  district.  section  of  the  Mr. S. G. Stooke, a son of Mrs, Wen-  rick, has decided to take ; his chance  with those who are rushing0to the Yukon gold fields and left here for the  coast on Thursday. He intends engaging- in business at some, point on  the road between Skagua3r and the Yukon,probably at Teslin I^ake.  The Board of License Commissioners had a short session on Saturday  when licenses were granted to five  hotels in the city. The commissioners  before granting licenses visited the  hotels and satisfied themselves that all  reasonable safeguards had been taken  to prevent loss of life in the event of  tire;  Owing to the heavy fall of snow during the week, the roofs of many buildings in the city had to be cleared.  N'elson's hall could not stand the weight  of snow on the canvas roof and consequently the building collapsed on Sunday evening. As it was only a temporary structure but little damage was  done.  J. W. Bassett, the freighter, spent  the week in Greenwood. He was given  a decidedly warm reception by the  Greenwood tmsiness men. Bassett  takes the matter coolly and maintains  that there is no money in hauling  freight to Greenwood at current rates,  consequently he is not anxious to secure the trade. ���  Mr. Leslie Hill, the local maiiager  for the Prospecting Syn iicate returned  last week from an extensive trip  throughout East and West Kootenay.  Mr. Hill's visit convinced him that  Greenwood is more than holding its  own with mining towns of the province. He saw no town that appeared  to be growing- so rapidly and so substantially as Greenwood.  F. R. Mendenhall before leaving  Greenwood secured fromG. H. Collins,  managing- director of the Golden Crown  Company a conditioned order for a complete mining plant for the Golden  Crown mine. This company secured a  plant from the Ingersoll-Sergernt Co.,  but owing to non-delivery within   con  tract time,   the  Golden   Crown   Company refused to accept the plant.  Mr. J. H. Macfarlane, the superintendent of the Sunset mine left Montreal on the 15th inst. for Greenwood.  He will visit some of the principal  cities in the western states and expects  to reach here about Februarj'- 8. Work  will be; resumed on the Sunset shortly-  after his arrival.  A   Confident Visitor.  Mr. Geo. W. Richardson, vice-president of the Bealey Investment & Trust  Company, spent two days in Greenwood this week. It was Mr. Richardson's first visit and he was naturally  surprised to find that Greenwood was a  city of such size and importance. He  feels confident that owing to the proximity of so many valuable mines, the  growth of Greenwood will be very  rapid and that it will soon be a commercial centre occupying equally as  important a position u in Boundary  Creek as Rossland does in Kootenay.  The business of the Bealey Investment  & Trust Company in Greenwood has  grown to such an extent that the company has decided to engage another  man to assist its manager, Mr. Naden.  Mr. Richardson returned to Rossland  on Thursday.      ,   -  Correction-  About a dozen representative men of  Boundary Creek are responsible for the  petition which appears on the first  page of The Times. It is rather singular therefore that the first paragraph  should contain a plural subject and a  singular verb. The only explanation  that can be offered is that the commit-  tee in their effort to make the petition  as formal as possible got their singular  predicate as far away from their subject as possible and it was a difficult  matter to institute a comparison to see  if there was a grammatical agreement.  The necessary correction was made in  the original xDetition however, so that  The Times must bear the brunt of a  typographical error -���an excuse which  does service upon many, occasions in  the newspaper world.  The Rossland Miner has taken  another flying switch and is how flirting with the provincial opposition.  gcqcsscras^xr.'gra  Awarded  giiest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter'Pair.

The committee on railways reported  that the g-eneral committee assisted by  gentlemen from Midway had prepared  the petition which is being circulated  and suggested that the association pass  a resolution endorsing the petition.  The committee were instructed to prepare such a resolution, to be signed by  the president and secretary and forwarded to Sir Wilfrid I/aurier, Hon.  Mr. Blair and Hewitt Bostock, M. P.  The other sub-committees not being  ready to report asked for further time.  This was granted and the association  then adjourned for two weeks.  County   Court   in    Greenwood.  For some time past an effort has  been made to secure the holding of  count}' court at Greenwood. Since  there is now a provincial court house  in the city and a government officer who is competent to act as a  deput3r registrar, there can be no good  excuse for not holding- sittings of the  county court here.  At the last sitting of the county  court in Midway six of seven cases  were those in which all the parties interested resided in Greenwood. The  lawyers retained by either or both sides  were Greenwood lawyers and the witnesses were nearly all from Greenwood. It can be readily understood  that the fact that all those connected  ���with cases are compelled to go to Midway increases the cost of litigation.  We feel  quite sure that   His   Honor,  Judge Spinks will offer no objection to  , court being- held at Greenwood.  The Boundary Creek Mining- & Commercial Association should use its influence towards securing- the necessary  chang-e.   Ex-Mayor Templeton, of Vancouver,  who was "defeated in the recent municipal election died suddenly of apoplexy on Sunda3r last. Mr. Temple-  ton was well known throughout the  province.

The Board of License Commissioners had a short session on Saturday  when licenses were granted to five ,  hotels in the city. The commissioners  before granting- licenses visited the  hotels and satisfied themselves that all  reasonable safeguards had�� been taken  to prevent loss of life ,.in. the event of .  fire.  Owing to the heavy fall of snow during the week, the roofs of many buildings in the city had to be cleared.  N'elson's hall could not stand the weight  of snow on the canvas roof and consequently the building- collapsed on Sunday evening. As it was only a temporary structure but little damage was.  done.  J. W. Bassett, the freighter, spent  the week in Greenwood. He was given  a decidedly warm reception by the  Greenwood business men. . Bassett  takes the matter coolly and maintains  that there is no money in hauling  freight to Greenwood at current rates,  consequently he is not anxious to secure the trade. ���  Mr. Leslie Hill, the local manag-er  for the Prospecting Syn iicate returned  last week from an extensive trip  throughout East and West Kootenay.  Mr. Hill's visit convinced him that  Greenwood is more than holding its  own with mining towns of the province. He saw no town that appeared  to be growing so rapidly and so substantially as Greenwood.  K. R. Mendenhall before leaving  Greenwood secured from G. H. Collins,  managing director of the Golden Crown  Company a conditional order for a complete mining plant for the Golden  Crown mine. This company secured a  plant from the Ingersoll-Sergernt Co.,  but owing to noii-delive^ within   con  tract time,   the  Golden   Crown   Company refused to accept the plant.  Mr. J. H. Macfarlane, the superintendent of the Sunset mine left Montreal on the 15th inst. for Greenwood.  He will visit some of the principal  cities in the western states and expects  to reach here about February 8. Work  will be resumed on the Sunset shortly  after his arrival.  A   Confident Visitor.  Mr. Geo. W. Richardson, vice-president fibf the Bealey Investment & Trust  Company^ spent two days in Greenwood this week. It was Mr. Richardson's first visit and he was naturally  surprised to find that Greenwood was a  city of such size and importance. He  feels confident that owing to the proximity of so many valuable mines, the  growth of Greenwood will be very  rapid and that it will soon be a commercial centre occupying equally as  importaiit a position in Boundary  Creek as Rossland does in Kootenay.  The business of the Bealey-Investment  & Trust Company in Greenwood has  grown to such cin extent that the company has decided to engage another  man to assist its manag-er, Mr. Naden.  Mr. Richardson returned to Rossland  on Thursday. *��� ,:  Correction.  About a dozen representative men of  Boundary Creek are responsible for the  petition which appears on" the first  page of The Times. It is rather singular therefore that the first paragraph  should contain a plural subject and a  sing-ular verb. The only explanation  that can be offered is that the commit-  tee in their effort to make the petition ;  as formal as possible got their singular  predicate as far away from their subject as possible arid it was a difficult  matter to institute a comparison to see  if there was a grammatical a'greeinent.  The necessary correction was made in  the: original petition however, so that  The Times must bear the brunt of a  typographical error ���ah excuse which  does service upon 'many occasions in  the newspaper world.  The Rossland Miner has taken  another flying switch and is how flirting with' the provincial opposition.  Awarded  ghest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

MINING & MILLING COMPANY.  The shareholders were well represented at the annual meeting of the  Boundary Creek Mining & Milling  Company. There was a general impression that the meeting would be an  interesting one and this probably induced some to make their appearance  while others were there with a view to  protecting- their interests in the comply-  The  president  of  the   company Mr.  G. Arthur Rendell  took the chair and  Secretary   Jacobs  read   the directors'  report   and   the   financial   statement.  The report  told   about   the amount of  development done during the  year  on  the different claims owned by the com-  panyaand also regarding the  purchase  and  re-transfer  of what  is known as  the McDonnell   ranch  property.    The  directors explained that the  property  had   been  purchased last spring but  owing to discouraging railway-news-it  was found that neither lots  nor shares  sold as rapidly as  they  wished  or the  interests  of   the company  demanded,  and Mr. McDonnell having-   made   an  offer to re-purchase the directors decided that it was in  the   interests of  the  company  to  accept   Mr.   McDonnell's  offer and confine its attention   to   mining    only.    The    financial   statement  showed a. small balance at the .Bank of  Montreal.    The president   moved   the  adoption   of   the  directors'  report and  then   the  fun   began.    Mr. Holbrook,  the manager of  the company and  one  of its directors,   owns   the  majority of  the shares  and  consequently   he   can  easily outvote all the other .shareholders.    Sitting  beside   him  in the meeting was Mr.   J.   P.   Mclveod, barrister  of Midway, who has been  retained  by  Mr. Holbrook  to  watch his interests.  Mr. Holbrook opposed the adoption of  the directors'   report  aiid  demanded a  poll.    The president decided si. poll was  unnecessar3r, as the very' fact that Mr.  Holbrook had opposed the adoption of  the,report would negative it.  Then several of the shareholders demanded an explanation. They wished  to know why Mr, Holbrook opposed the  report.        .,������,'.'-.  Mr. Mclveod replying for his client  said that Mr. Holbrook believed that  the McDonnell property could be sold  only by the shareholders, that the directors had no right to sell without the  advice and consent of the shareholders  and that he was of the opinion that the  property was sacrificed and would bring  a much larger price, if the shareholders  desired to sell. He didn't wish to do  arij'thing that might lead to show that  he endorsed the action of the directors  arid consequently opposed the adoption  of the report.  After a long and rather acrimonious  discussion Mr. Mclveod intimated in  reply to a question that his client  would probably take legal steps to test  the validity of the sale made by the directors. The concensus of opinion was  that this was the only way the difficulty could be settled and the meeting  was adjourned for two weeks to allow  time for some action to be taken.

To those who are interested in the development   of   the  great   natural resources of Boundary Greek district,  it  is exceedingly gratifying- to   find   that  the people have become  aroused to the  necessity for prompt and united action.  When   they  once  appreciate the  fact  that  everything-   comes   to  those   who  liave a good cause and  will  manfully  and unitedly advocate their  rights the  development so much desired will soon  come.    In the past, the people had too  little.faith in themselves and too much  in the power of  capitalists  and  politicians.    As citizens of a great country,  the people of Boundary   Creek  district  have been and are entitled to the same  legislative   consideration   as   those   of  other sections of the Dominion similarly situated.    They pay the same tribute  to Her Majesty's  Customs,   they treat  the excise man with as   much respect,  they  honor   the   same  flag,   and sing  " God Save the.Queen "   as   lustily   if  not as, musically as the   most loyal Canadians.    In  matters  provincial, they  are also entitled to the same consideration.    The tax  collector   is  welcomed  with equal cordiality, and private contributions are cheerfully given to  help  to  relieve  the   drain   upon a   heavily  drained   treasury.    Why   then   should  the people cringfe to politicians for favors ?    All   they  want is justice.    The  meetings held throughout  the  district  during the past  few  weeks show  that  the people have   at  last  determined to  assert  their   rig-hts   and  demand that  consideration to which   they are entitled.    Since ; they   have  done this they  will win the respect  of the  politicians  and success will crown their efforts.  But in order to be successful they  must be alert and watchful. Bvery  legitimate meaiis must be used to make  public    the. merits   of  . the    district.  Boundary Creek district is not nearly  well enough known. Its great natural  resources, its illimitable undeveloped  wealth, its boundless possibilities,  should be so advertised as to enthuse  the capitalist seeking investment and  the patriot anxious to encourage everything* that will tend to make this Dominion a country of many people and  great wealth.  The residents have, a duty to perform ; they should not shirk the responsibility.  The publishers of Ti-ie Times  anxious to make a special effort to ad-  \ vertise Greenwood, the other towns in  Boundary Creek district, the mining-  camps and every industry in the district, have decided to publish a  special  : Boundary Creek edition. We want the  assistance of everyone.    We  want our  ��� advertisers to give their space for the  purpose   of   advertising   the   district.  ; We want them for. one issue to adyer-  ��� tise the town or the,district instead of  the advantages of the cash system, the  quality of the groceries or the large  stock of hardware. And we also want  them to buy several copies of this  special edition and send them to their  friends in different parts of the world.  The Times asks a good deal it is true,  but as it is in the interests of the district its exuberance of "' gall " will be  overlooked.  An Incipient Fire.  What might have been a serious fire  was prevented by the presence of mind  of Rev. Mr. Guy, on Sunday evening  last. "Shortly after service at the  school house, a lamp broke loose from  its fastenings and fell to the floor.  The oil was spattered in every direction and immediately ignited. Mr.  Guy and Mr. Garland were in the  school house at the time and the former  swept the burning lamp from the room.  The fire was then quickly extinguished.  The cry of "fire " was raised and there  was considerable excitement for a few  minutes. In this connection it is  respectfully suggested that the city  council make speedy arrangements to  secure a good bell so as to remove the  necessity for an alarm being- given  vocally.     ���      -     ��� "  Installation   of  Officers.

The probability of securing a railway at an early date has induced mine  owners to increase their forces so as to  have their mines in a shipping-position  as speedily as possible. The Winnipeg-  Company for instance, have increased  their force. At first the company decided to spread their development work  over a period of eighteen months but  the directors believing a railway will  reach here before that time have increased their force and will complete  the development work in about half  that time. Other mine owners will follow suit and by the time a railway will  reach here, its carrying capacity will  be taxed to the utmost. The B. C.  mine in Summit camp takes the lead  with a force of 26 men.  Established 1858.  Gold Medal Awarded  At B. C. Agricultural Exhibition  1895 and 1896.

It  is  reported  that  there were irregularities in connection  with the election that were sufficiently,  grave to  make  the  election   null   and  void ; but it is common rumor that the  greatest irregularity' was the fact that  the people  had  turned  down   what  is  commonly known as the Manly gang.  The latter is so serious   a  matter   that  the Iyeg-islature is to be asked   to  pass  a bill enabling the gang to run   Grand  Forks instead of the  people.    The bill  will not put the matter so  bluntly, but  that is the reported object.    Peter Mc-  Callum was elected mayor by a decided  majority,   and   three    aldermen  were  elected from one   of  the  wards.    It  is  stated,  however,   that  the  deputy  returning officer was not sworn to do his  duty.    Some of the Grand Forks electors hold that the ballot box was stuffed.  There   were   none   of   the   electors  qualified   for   aldermen   in" the  other  ward,   and   consequently  no   election  was held there.    It  appears  that  the  plan of borrowing qualified men  from  the other ward never, suggested itself,  there being- nothing in the Act to  prevent a duly qualified voter  running as  alderman in any ward.  Another report reached. Greenwood  that His Honor Judge Spinks had advised the old council to retain office until such time as the legislature would  grant relief from the municipal tangle.  The new council did not relish this advice, and both old and new are attempting to guide the Grand Forks  municipal ship.  CITY   OFFCERS.  The City Council met on Friday at  ten o'clock and appointed city officers.  His 'Worship, Mayor Wood, presided  and all the members of the council  were present. The following resolution was moved by Aid. Phelan and  seconded by Aid. Barrett and carried  unanimously :  Whereas, application is being-  made  to the Dominion parliament for a charter to construct a railway from a point  on the International Boundary L/ine at  or near Cascade City thence in a west-  '[��� erly direction following   the   valley of  the Kettle fiver to a point on the Boun-  dary line at or near Carson,  also from  another point on said Boundary line at  or near Midway, thence northerly following the Valle)r of  Boundary  Creek  through   Boundary    Falls,   Anaconda  and Greenwood ; and, Whereas the construction of said railwa3r would   afford  a short and easy means  for  transportation  of  Boundary   Creek ores to the  smelters   at   Nelson,   Trail   and other  * .    - ��� ���'  smelting points in British Columbia to  which points the applicants for a charter are willing to pledge themselves to  deliver ore at the same rates as to  points on the Columbia river on the  United States side of the International  Boundary Lane and give a cheap and  speedy means for the bringing of machinery and other supplies into the district, and,  Whereas, private enterprise has not  only developed many of the mines but  has also established towns in the district, the prosperity of which, together  with that of farmers and settlers, is  entirely dependent on the mining :  Be it therefore resolved that the  Municipal Council of the City of Greenwood do strongly urge that a charter  be granted to the Kettle River Valley  Railway Company.  And be it further Resolved, that  copies of this resolution be forwarded  to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Hon. Mr. Blair,  Minister of Railways, Hon. Clifford  Sifton. Minister of the Interior, and  Hewitt Bostock, M. P.  Mr. G. R. Naden who was appointed  auditor presented his report. He had  examined the books and found the  financial statement of the city treasurer correct. The report was received  and adopted on motion of Aid. Galloway seconded by Aid. Phelan.  The council then proceeded to  elect  city officers.    The  clerk  was  retained  at a salary of $25 a month,  on   motion  of Aid. Phelan, seconded by  Aid. Barrett.    Applications for the position   of  constable and  collector were received  from G. B. Taylor,   D.   Beath,   Archie  Felto and A. ��,... I/u-ff.   The council bal-  lotted for the applicants,   and  on   the  first ballot Mr. G. B. Taylor secured a  majority of the  votes.    As  the  police  commissioners have the power  to  appoint a constable,   the  council  reconir  mended  that  Mr.   Taylor receive the  appointment.    The commissioners met  shortly  aftewards  and  confirmed the  appointment.   Mr. Naden was appointed treasurer at a salary of $25 a month,  ou motion of Aid. Phelan, seconded by  Aid. Barrett.    Mr. Black was appointed city solicitor at a''salary  of $25  per  mouth, on motion of   Aid. Phelan, seconded by Aid. Parry.    The police magistrate was voted a salary of $25  per  month,  on  motion   of Aid.   Galloway,  seconded by Aid. Phelan.  The mayor appointed the   following  committees :  ��� Finance : Aid.   Phelan.   Paton   and  Parry.  Board of  Works : Aid,  Barrett and Kerr.  Board  ok  Heai/th :    Aid.  Phelan and Paton.

In Greenwood Camp.  The first public meeting" in Greenwood camp was held on Tuesday evening- and was largely attended by miners and mine owners. Mr. George  Rumberger was voted to the chair and  Mr. J. F. Hetnenway appointed secretary. The railway petition was discussed and approved and the signatures of all those present obtained.  Some excellent speeches were made  and the meeting was broug-ht to a close  by a vote of thanks to the chairman  and the secretary.  The petition which is being circulated in favor of granting a charter to  the Kettle River Railway Company  secured the signature of every resident  of  Greenwood and Wellington  camps.  The   Stemwinder.  Mr. W. Mclyean, an experienced mining man of Spokane, ha,s been in the  district for a few days, making- preparations to begin work on the Stem-  winder mine for the new purchasers of  the property. A larg-e force of men  will be employed. As there are already  two.shafts, 50 feet and 90 feet in depth  on the property and considerable cross-  cutting, the development work will be  carried on by machinery, a complete  plant being now on the way to the  mine from the east.  This will make the seventh steam  mining plant in the district, five of  which have been purchased during the  last three months. No better indication of the rapid strides being made in  development of the mineral resources  of the district can be found than the  fact that the owners of big mines have  found it necessary to provsecute the  work o|f opening up the mines with  steam plants. ., Four of the plants are  in Greenwood and Wellington camps  namely at the Winnipeg, Golden Crown  the Old Ironsides and the Stemwinder.  A Stamp Mill  At Boundary  Falls.  Mr. J. B. Ferguson, of Boundary  Falls, has received a letter from Mr.  James Punch, manager of the Boundary Falls Mining Company, in which  the latter states that the company have  decided to erect a'mill at Boundary  Falls to treat the free milling ore in  the Boundary Falls mine. Mr. Punch  intends leaving the coast in a few-days  and the .mill will be sent in and erected  as speedily as possible. The principal  shareholders in the Boundary Falls  Company are members of the well  known machinery firm, the Wm. Hamilton Manufacturing- Company and the  mill will be supplied ������'by them. When  erected this will be the first mill in  'Boundary-Creek'district and as the ore  in the Boundary Falls mine gives high  returns the venture is sure to prove a  profitable investment for the shareholders.  In these days of freigiit troubles, the  hotel men of Greenwood are congratu-  lating themselves upon the fact that a.  supply of bottled beer is assured. The  Greenwood Steam Bottling- Works has  always a supply on hand.  Certificate; of the Registration of  ���an Extra-Provincial Company.  " Companies'Act, 1897."

The report conies from the coast that  two of the ablest lawyers on the coast  have decided to take an active part in  the coming election against the Turner  g-overnment. Mr..E. V. Bodwell. the  leader of the bar in the city of Victoria,  and E. P. Davies occupying a similar  position in his profession on the mainland, are the two g-entlemeii referred to.  It is also reported that Mr. J. C. Brown  of New Westminster will re-enter politics. He is one of the most aggressive  campaign fig-hters in the province.  The Turner g-overnment would have  been defeated under any circumstance,  but with such able men fighting-for  the opposition the government party is  likely to be wiped out at the polls.
