During- his visit to the coast  .he did good service to Boundary Creek  hy calling- attention to the resources  ��f the district. The Spokesman-Review, the Seattle Times, Vancouver  World and other newspapers of large  circulation contain interesting- inter-  Tiews with Mr. Gaunce. The Ranch  and Range, a farmer's paper with a  large circulation, contains a carefully  prepared article drawing- attention to  the larg-e and profitable market for  farm produce that, is sure to be opened  up in this district.

Stoess, a surveyor, who has had many  years' experience in railway and general engineering-. Mr. Aldridge came  by appointment to confer with the  owners of the Cascade townsite relative to the erection of a large smelting plant near this city, which is to be  utilized in the treatment of Boundary,  Christina Lake and Burnt Basin ores.  All day Thursday was spent'in looking  over the immense power at the falls  and in tramping over the site selected  for the smelter, about one and one-half  miles south of the city, on a high bluff  above the Kettle river. ��� Cascade  Record.

Vol. V,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY,  JANUARY  14, 1899.  123  23 No, 19  PROVINCIAL   PARLIAMENT.  g^ICTORIA, Jan. 9.���The Semlin g-overnment met  �� the legislature on Thursday, January 5, and still  lives. Many were the prognostications made regarding- the early defeat of the Semlin-Martin  combination. Some figured that it would be impossible to elect a speaker ; others claimed that  there would be no majority after the speaker was  elected. The speaker has been elected and the government  has a majority of four���a sufficient number in'a house of  thirty-eight. Alex. Henderson, who defeated "Winchester"  ���Brown in New Westminster, sits and votes on the government side of the house, looking quite at home, and the  . government appear to have forgotten that Henderson defeated one of Mr. Semlin's best fighters. W. G. Neilson,  M. P.. P. for North East Kootenay, dropped dead at  Almonte, Ont., on Thursday last. The desertion of Henderson and the death of Neilson leave Mr. Semlin with a  majority of four.  The election of a speaker created no fight nor discussion.  J. M. Kellie, who was supposed to be an applicant for the  position, moved that Thos. Forster, member for Delta, be  speaker. Hon. Col. Baker, a member of the Turner government, seconded the motion. There was no opposition,  and it is now Mr. Speaker Forster.  The speech from the throne foreshadows some important legislation. Some of the election promises are hot forgotten, for the mortgage tax is to be repealed and working  miners will not be required to have free miners' certificates.  Probably the most important legislation 'outlined, is  that which will prevent aliens from holding placer claims.  The intention is to create a trading monopoly for the coast  merchants in the Atlin Lake district. The speech politely  says so, because it states that the object of the bill is to  conserve the natural wealth in these gold fields for the  benefit of Canadian miners and Canadian traders. It is  rather a moot question whether it is in the public interest  to inaugurate a polic3r of excluding a mining; class from a  country with a population of less than five million and  room for sixty million people. There are members on both  sides of the house in favor of the measure and it will likely  pass.  The legislature will be asked to pass a measure to put  the -civic finances of New Westminster on a stable basis.  It will be remembered that the Royal City was almost completely destroyed by fire.    . '���  The Torrens' system of land registration is to be introduced. Certain changes are tobe made in the land act. A  bill is to be introduced to prevent the "employment of  Japanese underground.  A bill will be introduced to provide for boiler inspection.  A bill will be introduced to afford prospectors the same  freedom on railway lands as crown lands.  The Supreme Court act, the Provincial Elections act  and the Liquor License act are all to be amended.  The fun is likely to begin on Monday. Mr. Turner has  given notice that on Monday he will move "' that the course  adopted by his honor, the lieutenant-governor, in dismissing his late ministry was at variance with the constitutional  principles upon which responsible government should be  conducted."  Colonel Baker gave a foretaste of the style of argument  to be pursued in his speech discussing the address on Friday. Ralph Smith moved aiid Mr: Munro seconded the  reply to the speech N from the throne. Colonel Baker, in  reply, said among other things that  the government was a  gubernatorial monstrosity���the creation of one man in ���contempt of the will of the people. He sneered at Mr. Henderson's going over to the government, and wondered if the  explanation for his conduct could be found in the promised  assistance to the city of New Westminster.  aY'i      *Y&      *Y's  �����if ���   yit>      '/it-  A   BIG   MINING   DEAL.  One of the most important deals in connection witlr  Boundary Creek mining properties was transacted last  week in Toronto, when Byron L. Walker, manager Canadian Bank of Commerce, Hon. Senator Cox and Robert  Jaffray became associated with Mackenzie, Mann & Co. in.  in the ownership of big Greenwood camp properties. The  min^s included in the deal are the Brooklyn, Stemwinder���  Rawhide, Montezuma and Standard. W. T. Smith, wh��  has a quarter interest in some of the properties, left Spokane for Toronto this week. His visit is in connection with,  the recent transaction as well as other mining deals<he is  putting through. Joe. Boss has been in Toronto with Dan.  Mann for some time before the Toronto capitalists invested in the properties.  It is stated that the owners do not intend organizing a.  company for some time, but will develop the properties as a.  close corporation.  The Brooklyn is being vigorously prospected. A large  shaft house���the neatest in the district���has been erected.  Two large boilers and a hoisting engine have been installed and sinking is being carried on night and day. The  ledge outcrops on the surface over one hundred feet iu.  width. The ore on the dump is similar to that taken out of  the Ironsides shaft between the SO and 75-foot levels. The  -Rawhide is being developed by a crosscut tunnel now in.  over 250 feet. It has about 400. feet to run. The Stem-  winder, Montezuma and Standard show big Greenwood!  camp ledges.  The new owners are among the most enterprising and  wealthiest men of Toronto. The intention is to get a big  compressor plant to work the group of properties.  $Y&'    *Y&  ���>it-   ?'?���  ?if  SKYLARK   CAMP.  Thanks to the enterprise of H. H. Shallenberger, Skylark camp properties are coming to the front. He recently  organized in Spokane the Greenwood Crescent Gold Mining  and Milling company with the following directors : Charles  Sweeny, W. B. Heyburn, H. H. Shallenberger, J. F. Youngs  G. S. Allison, J. A. Odell and F.' B. Grunnell. The capitaL  is 1,000,000 shares of 10 cents each. The company's stock  was a favorite as soon as placed on the market. All the  first block was sold and double prices are being offered for  remaining shares.  Mr. Shallenberger has also purchased the Lake claim  from W. A. Corbett. It is the intention to incorporate a  company to take over the property. The Lake is near the  Last Chance mine. The Boundary Creek Mining company  the owners of the latter property, intend installing machinery -early next spring-. The Lyake adjoins the Last  Chance on the north.  Hal. Cole is negotiating for the sale of the Defiance,  another Skylark camp property. The Defiance lies north  of the Lake and adjoins the San Bernard, and is considered  one of the promising properties of the camp. Indications  point to a strong movement in' Skylark camp properties  during the coming season, and a large amount of development work will be done.

For a few days last week, during the  cold snap, there was an immense sheet  of clear ice on Christina lake, fully  twelve miles by two miles in extent,  but the only man who profited by it  was Charles Sanders, who owns a pre-emption at the head of the lake, and'  took advantage of it to make a trip to  the outside world. The lake is very  dangerous for those who do not know  it thoroughly, there being a great  many springs, aiid consequently air  holes in the ice. , ,....-..,  Those who have not actually seen  the .work of building the railway  through the McRae Creek pass and  along- the North Fork of the Kettle  river, can scarcely realize the difficulties which modern engineering skill  can overcome���and 'yet the construction of the line from Robson to Bound-  arj' creek attracts little comment outside of the local press. It is a strange  fact, but the praises of this feat of engineering-will probably not be loudly  sung until construction days are a  thing of the past.  tmtmxnsuaBouxtBtat  WOOD FOR SALE,  All Lengths, from 16 to 48 inches.

''I   r  r !   -l  .in  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES;  KIMBERLEY   CAMP.  ~--Kiinberley camp, about eight miles  up Boundary creek from Greenwood, is  rapidly coming to the front. There  are large bodies of ore, generally low  grade but easily worked, and with  proper mining/facilities will yield" a  handsome profit. It is reported that_  the Atlantic, a claim owned by GeoV  Henderson 'and 'Robert Murray, was  bonded/this week for $40,000. Both  owners are out of the city, so that particulars could not be learned, but it is  reported that all the "papers have been  signed and the deal closed.  The Atlantic has  been  developed to  a considerable extent and a large body ,  of ore has been opened up.  The claim in Kimberley  camp  that  has attracted the  greatest attention of  mining* men is  the Dromard.    It  lies  north of the Atlantic   and  was located  in August  last.    Since   that  date  the  property   has   been   worked   continuously.    A tunnel has been run and the  ledge is   16^   feet  in  width.    Mining  men who have examined the Dromard ,  claim that the ore is  free milling-, and  that it can be worked very cheaply, as  it is situated on Boundary creek, where  there is a splendid water power. Numerous assays have been made  of  the ore  of the Dromard.    The ledge goes from  $2.80 to $9.60 in gold.    The property is  so situated that a  great  depth  can  be  attained   simply   by    continuing-    the  tunnel.    The ore is  easily worked and  experienced mining- men  are  strongly  of the opinion that  with   the  best  facilities the ore can be mined and milled  for  less  than  $2 per  ton.    The ledg-e  ' can be traced on the surface over 4,000  feet and varies in width  from  16J5^  to  50   feet.     Development work will   be  continued,   and   from  present  indications it looks  as  if  the  Dromard was  likely to prove a permanent  and dividend-paying- mine.  Court of Revision.  C. A. R. Lambly, assessor, and F.  McGowen, judge of the court of revision, passed through Greenwood on  'Sunday, en route to Grand Forks,  where a court of revision was held  Monday morning. Several minor appeals were disposed of. They returned  on Monday and held court at Midway  on Tuesday, the only appeal being  from Mr. Moody, owner of a townsite  at Christina lake.  The Greenwood Club.  The Greenwood club elected officers  last week as follows: President, C.  Scott Galloway ; vice-president, F. J.  Finucane ; secretary, W. L. Leonard ;���  treasurer, J. W. Smith ; committee, A.  M. Whiteside, J. W. Smith, A. S.  Black, J. E. Leckie, Geo. A. Guess  and, D. A. Cameron. On Saturday  evening a smoking concert was g-iven  in the club rooms, when a splendid  programme of song- was rendered. The  club has well-furnished rooms in the  Barrett block, and has a membership  of over fifty.  H. T. Wilgress, C. P. R. right-of-  way agent, is again in Greenwood  after a three weeks' business trip to  to the coast. He reports that the difficulty regarding the subsidy for the  road from the Summit has been satisfactorily settled.  Rossland.  eilt Jifcf  Greenwood.  L1AVITED    LIABILITY.

P. A. O'Farrell, writing to the Toronto Globe, has this to say concerning- the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  mines:   ������;  "More  than  a  year  ago  I made a  prolonged sojourn  in the Kettle River  -country,.and I then became profoundly  impressed with its magnitude and pos-  .sibilities.     I .examined the   Republic  and then declared  it among the greatest gold mines  of ,> the world.    I made  .similar    predictions   about   Ironsides,  JKnob Hill, IVpne Star and Washington,  Stemwinder,    Brooklyn    and    others.  Well, the Republic  has  already  filled  the mining world  with  astonishment,  and   Knob   Hill   and   Ironsides    will  amaze the world to-morrow.    I say tomorrow, for even  its  principal  stockholders do not yet realize  the value of  these properties.    In  a recent letter I  stated that thoug-h the owners claimed  o   the ore will averag-e $20  a ton, I could  jiot believe it possible of mining- more  than $10.    The ore  body  was so vast,  so immense, that I did not believe that  nature  could   have- ever placed  such  .stupendous  treasure  all in  one place.  Fancy a dyke of  solid mineral 300 feet  wide, which will run 5 per cent, copper  and three-fourths of an ounce in , gold.  An   experienced   mining   man   would  laugh at such  a  suggestion.    He  will  tell you that such a   mine  is  contrary  to the laws of nature and all that kind  of thing-.    Nevertheless, the Knob Hill  , and Ironsides  vein   is  300  feet  wide,  ,1,000 feet  in  length  and  already  explored to  450  feet deep.    And  it will  produce   $20   in   gold  and  copper for  every  ton ��of   ore  mined.    Knob  Hill  and   Ironsides   doubly    discounts   the  great   Anaconda   itself.     The   ore  is  twice   as  valuable  and the  ore  body  twice as large. Anaconda pays $3,000,-  - O00 yearly in dividends.    What are not  these mines capable of doing ?    Three  years ag-o Marcus  Daly, the principal  owner and manager of the Anaconda,  told me that he had spent hundreds of  -thousands  hunting for another copper  mine like the Anaconda, and the hunt  was vain.    He told  me  then  from his  experience   of   mining no  such  mine  would ever be found again as the Anaconda, and  yet Knob  Hill  and Ironsides and their  extensions  will cast it  completely   in  the  shade.    They  will  quarry and not  mine these Greenwood  properties  when   they   are   ready,   as  they quarry out the most famous cop-  ��� per mine on earth, the Rio Tinto.    But  the Rio Tinto   is  nothing beside Knob  Hill and Ironsides.    If  there were not  a particle of g-old in the  ore Knob Hill  would be richer  than  Rio Tinto, for it  contains twice the copper values.    But  Knob Hill and Ironsides are  not  only  the  greatest  copper  mines,   but  they  are  also  the  greatest  gold  mines on  earth.    *   ���*'.*. The  smelter  site  for  the Knob Hill has been selected, and it  ought to be in  operation by July -1.    I  am told thai: the Canadian Pacific will  build their own smelters, however, and  in that case the Knob Hill smelter will  be at the mercy  of  rivals.    This  is a  point worth considering for  those who  are putting their money in smelters in  the Kettle River country'! F. A.  Heinze had a smelter at TraiL It was  run -by H. C. Bellinger, and no better  team than Heinze and Bellinger could  be g-ot to handle a commercial enterprise. But Heinze was at the mercy  of one railroad, and he was forced to  sell and to sacrifice."  [Mr. O'Farrell is in error when he  states that the smelter site for the  Knob Hill has been selected. In a recent letter received in Greenwood, Mr.  Graves states that the site would not  be selected until his arrival in the  "district.���Ed.]  Boundary Valley   Lodge,  No. 38, I.O.O.F.

SATURDAY,  JANUARY 14, 1899.    ~~~~  THE   RESULT.  The municipal fight is over and the  ���electors have decided that Mr. Thos.  Hardy shall be mayor for the ensuing  year. The electors, in our humble  ���opinion, have left the best man for  the position at home. Mr. Smailes has  nothing to regret. He f ought a, gehtle-  manly campaign and is left free to attend to his business affairs. The loss  is on the side of the city. The question of who shall be chief ^magistrate  rests however with the majority of the  electors, and it is to; be hoped that the  victors and the vanquished will work  for the best interests of the city.  Unfortunately many complications  are likely to arise because of the result  in the aldermanic contest. Two of the  candidates, Dr. Jakes and' J. W. Nelson, did not possess the necessary  property qualifications to be placed in  nomination. The electors were so informed, but those who elected Mr.  Hardy also chose to elect unqualified  candidates, simply because they were  on Mr. Hardy's ticket. If these two  elected take their seats, not only are  they liable to heavy penalties themselves, but they are likely'to endanger  the legality of any transactions of the  council.  It is of the utmost importance that  this matter should be cleared up before they take the oath of office and  their seats at the council board.' We  regret that the municipal act is so  rigid as to disqualify Dr. Jakes and  Mr. Nelson. Both, and Dr. Jakes particularly; would make good aldermen,  but Mr. Thos. McDonnell withdrew  when he learned that his property had  not been registered in time, and we  think that Messrs. Jakes and Nelson  would have acted in the best interests  of the city by following  his  example.  THE   MUNICIPAL   CONTEST.  The hot municipal campaign which  was carried on for three or four  weeks, came to a close on Wednesday  night with a crowded meeting in Rendell's hall. Mr. Thos. Miller was  again chairman. The candidates and  others addressed the electors.  : lOarly Thursday morning teams were  out and committee men were busy  taking voters to the polls. The court  house was altogether too small for the  mayoralty and two ward elections to  be held there, consequently there was  a good deal of delay in polling votes  particularly between 1 and 2 o'clock,  when the majority of the ladies turned  out to vote. At 4 o'clock almost every  voter in the city had cast his ballot.  When the votes for mayor were  counted, it was found that Thos. Hardy-  had 81 votes, Ralph Smailes 60 and  four spoiled ballots, making a total of  145. by far the largest vote ever cast in  the city.  In the North ward there were numerous combinations voted, and the result  was in doubt until the ballots were  counted. Fifty-nitie votes were polled  in this ward. Mr. Naden headed the  list with 37, Mr. Phelan ran an even  race with Dr. Jakes until the last,  when the doctor secured the third place  by two votes. Mr. Galloway was  second on the list with 32 votes.  The South ward vote was a surprise  in many : ways. As was expected J.  Sutherland headed the poll with 81  votes out of a possible 107. As in the  North ward, there were here some  wonderfurcoriibinations of votes which  naturally affected the result. While  Mr. Barrett received the least votes  he also received more plumpers than  any other candidate. There were  two spoilt ballots in this ward.  A noticeable feature of the campaign was the fact that every lady on  the voters' list exercised her franchise.  The following shows  the result:  FOR  MAYOR.  Votes.

Mayor  Wallace of Rossland was defeated by  A. S. Goodeve, and John Houston, Nelson's mayor since incorporation, was  defeated by Geo. Neelands.  The C. P. R. intend making a town  out of Cascade. Not only will a large  smelter be erected at that point, but  also extensive work shops. The latter  will be a necessity owing to the amount  of traffic that will necessarily converge at that point. Work on the construction of the smelter will, however,  not begin until construction trains can  be run as far as Cascade.  W.   JAKES,   M. D.,   CM.

The postoffice of Upper Grand Forks  lias been re-named Columbia, the name  by which the new C. P. R. town at  that point will be called. At the present time temporary bridges are being  constructed at the old Johnson ferry  and hear Columbia, and a'wag-on road  made, along the C. P. R. right of way  ori the south side of the river, in-order-  to divert through traffic from the old  town of Grand Forks to Columbia.  These will be replaced later on by permanent bridges, paralleling the railway bridges to be constructed at these  points.  Old settlers in the Christina Lake  country are wondering if the present  government will treat them as they  were treated by the Turner administration. The custom of the latter was to  collect taxes of every kind with great  regularity, but no money ever being  expended in return. lOvery trail and  bridge in the district was made by  prospectors and settlers.

It is  copiously illustrated with half tones.  The press work and genera! make-up  reflects great credit on the office in  which it  is', published.��� Nelson Miner.  The Boundary Creek Times of Greenwood, B. C.? has issued a magnificent  holiday number. The Times is a sample  of fine art printing in every issue, but  in the holiday number it excels itself.  Greenwood is thePmost successful of  the new mining towns of British Columbia, and its success is hot a little  due to the excellent work of the Times.  ���Calgary Herald.  , The Boundary Creek Times has issued a special holiday number that is a  credit to British Columbia journalism.  It is one of the verybest special numbers we ever sa-vy come: from a country  office, and it would be a creditable performance for any.city office in Qariada.  The special is ehibellished with a number of fine photo-engraving-s, showing-  the pretty little city 1 of Greenwood  nestling among\ the mountains from  several- points of view f some of the  leading merchants o�� the place, stores,  hotels and other large buildings ; views  of some of the neighboring mines and  their machinery. The descriptive articles are well written, interesting-and  cannot fail to attract wide attention.  . We offer hearty congratulations to  Editor Ross and his colleagues^ upon  this really meritorious piece of work.���  Victoria Times.  The Christmas edition of the Boundary Creek Times, published  at  Greenwood, B.
