Smith Returns. A Meyers Creek Froperty  Bonded.  Mining Notes.  W. T. Smith returned this week from  Toronto, where he spent several weeks  in   assisting- , to organize the largest  company yet floated to develop Boundary   Creek    mining-   properties.     Mr.  Smith always retained his  interest  in  the big.properties'purchased: by  Mac-  kenzie,.Mann & Co., and in the organization   of   the company it   was   important that, his interests should be included. -Mr..Smith agreed to the taking  of shares in the company as payment.  The   company   which   was   organized  several weeks ago but.has; not yet;been  registered is.called, the Dominion.Cop^  per Mines Limited.. The.capitalization  is $5,000,000. .The properties represent  3,000,000   shares/.; 2,000,000: has, been  placed in the treasury, and. 1^000,000.is  held   in   the reserve. -  The properties  which   the   Company    acquire   are.,  a  group of six big. claims  in  Greenwood  camp, namely, the Stemwinder, Brooklyn; Idaho, Montazuma, Rawhide and  Golden . Eagle.   . While all   are   good"  properties ; the development/work  has  been confined chiefly .to the Brooklyn  and Stemwinder.    The-Brooklyn is. a  crown-granted property, .located under  the old mining act, and is consequently  .600, by 1500  feet.    The ledge, or more  properly speaking the lode, runs north  and  south   arid  is  100  feet  in   width.  Thel limestone'.wall\is easily discernible, on. the.surface^ and the lode;.can  ;be.traced .the entire distance to the.op-  posite   wall.    A   double. compartment'  sha��t,/9x4-!^ feet inside tlie timbers, has  been su.n.k;.to:a\4eptK,^  ���^I^tjs>f4n;agl��jr>f^de^eesi-;3?here  are two levels, one: at- .50 feefe. and ;theT  other at 150 feet.. The greater development work.has been done at the . latter  level.- The ledge has been crosscut  the entire distance .of 150 feet. There  is also a 75-foot drift on the ore body.  It is the intention to crosscut and drift  at 250 feet. This work is to be started  in a few days. The company .have an  assay office on the ground "which is  kept busy turning out . values from  samples. What the values are has not  been made public, but it is safe to say  that the Brooklyn ore runs high in copper and also contains good gold, values.  There are about 500 tons of shipping  ore on the dump. ' A 30x60 shaft-house,  36 feet high, built of lumber and roofed  with corrugated iron, shelters two 30-  horsepower boilers and hoist. There  is also a No. 5 plunger pump, but there  has yet been no necessity for its use.  The plant has a sufficient capacity to  sink the shaft to the'500-foot level.    A  well  built  wagon   road leads from the  Brooklyn to the Stemwinder.    Here   is  a shaft similar to that on the Brooklyn.  It is,9x4J4 feet in the clear, with an inclination   of 70 degrees.    Eight inch  square timbers and two-inch planking  form the sides.    The shaft house is  80  feet in length   and 50  feet inhei'ght.  The  building, is  intended for the  big  compressor piant,  which   will  be  installed as soon as the railway is  completed,  and which  will furnish power  to the two mines.    In the meantime  a  30-horsepower boiler, a'hoist and pump  comprises the plant.   The width of the  Stemwinder ledge, has riot been  determined,  but it is known to be several  hundred   feet.     The   dump   contains  several hundred tons of ore.    It runs as  high as 20 per cent, copper,  will   average 10 per cent, copper, and also carries  substantial gold values.    The sluaft is  down  175  feet. , The ledge .has  been  crosscut at 115. feet and. a drift run.  ThesHaft will be continued at different  levels established.  R.  M. 'McEntire  and Thos. McDonnell, of the firmjDf McEntire,  McDonnell .&,. Co.,,  made   several   trips   to  Meyers Creek-Jast week. . They were .  not'ori   pleasure  bent;  indeed one of '  the trips was taken on bicycles with '..  the result thai: neither are saying much '  buttheir appearance upon their return  spoke volumes.    They had  the satisfaction, however,  of securing a bond  on the^Re'view' which is considered one  of the best properties on'Meyers Creek.  The  price mentioned in'��� the bond  is  $50,000.   The Review is at the foot of  Anarchist mountain, across the, international boundary  line."   It "is a free .  milling   property ; and    the'samples  brought   down   are   plainly,  streaked  with the yellow metal.   The Review is  owned by  Robert Allison and J. Mul-  holland.'

The grand drilling tournament on  Tuesday evening closed the biggest  and most successful celebration ever  held in the Boundary Creek District.  From the time of the log chopping contest on Monday morning until the last  drill was pounded, in what was probably the most keenly contested and  highest prized drilling tournament ever  held in British Columbia, the celebration was a series of successes.        ���  The crowds began to gather on Sunday and by Monday morning there were  probably 3,000 people in the city. The  number rapidly increased until Tuesday afternoon and it would be impossible to estimate how many attempted to  witness the drilling tournament. The  visitors entered a gaily decorated city.  The decoration committee, ably assisted by the business men, had transformed the business streets into avenues of decorations. Streamers, buntings, flags and evergreens had been  used to such good effect until it was  impossible to realize the ordinary every  day business street. ��� Lack of space  precludes a detailed descriptionof the  decorations by business -firms, i Many  showed a large amount of originality  and taste. Special mention ought to  be made of Hunter-Kendrick's where a  fully armed man-of-war made out of  articles of hardware attracted much attention. Rendell & Co.'s beautiful  arcade was tastily decorated, as was  also the Imperial hotel, Greenwood.  Trading company's store, W. M. Law  & Co.'s, St. Charles hotel, Pioneer  hotel, Miners' hotel, P. Burns & Co.j,  Smith & McRae's and a dozen other  business houses.  At the corner of Copper and Greenwood streets were two streamers, one  bearing- thp. inxr-.ription. "We Welcome  All to the Metropolis," and the other,  "Success to the Boundary Creek District." Another streamer invited the  visitor to Rendell's Arcade.  WOOD CHOPPING.  The carnival of sports opened with a  wood chopping contest at the corner of  Copper and Deadwood streets. The  contestants were John A. Murray,  champion of British Columbia, and  Mike Hays. The log was about lfi  inches in diameter. Murray who hai  first choice, made his cut in 1:591-.  Hays, the adjoining cut, in 2:211-S.  In the next trial Hays had the small  end and finished in 2:40 2-5, while  Murray's time was 2:49. The contest;  was awarded to Murray.  LACROSSE.  Fo* the first time Greenwood was the  scene of a lacrosse match. Canada's  national and popular game had been  played more scientifically but never  more enthusiastically. There were  veterans in the teams���old players who  knew all the little tricks that so annoy  an opponent and amuse the grandstand. There were novices too���men  who never saw a lacrosse stick until  they saw it in Greenwood. Lacrosse  was played sometimes, "shinny" at  other times, but the crowd -seemed to  enjoy the game. The teams wer��- as  follows;  No. 1���Medill, Louiser, Brooks,  Brooks, Zoellener, Crawford, Kennedy  and Patner.  No. 2���Flood, Dalles, Morgan, Hallett, McPherson, Thomas, Hillary and  Frith.  HOKSEKACING.  A horseman is the most independent'  cuss on the face of the earth. If he  owns a blooded horse he labors under  the impression that the audience, the  judges and every one else must await  his pleasure. His impression is usually  correct. The crowd becomes impatient  and the judges curse, but the races  don't start until the king horseman is  ready. It so happened on Monday and  is likely to happen until there are  sufficient entries to make the owners  less independent. The quarter mile  run in heats, was scheduled to be run  at 2:30 sharp. There were four entries, Sleepy Jim, Dan McLung; Race-  land, Dan McDonald; "55," J. E.  Leckie, and Rossland Maid, Claud A.  Cregan. At 2:30 neither "55" nor  Rossland Maid put in an appearance  and it was after three before they were  seen moving at a funeral pace towards  the   track.    It  took  another half hour  D     MllltJEk/Mr     /����� Ito  *��et   tllem  ��ff-    Rossland Maid won  a.   MUMROE,   GreenWOOd.   first and second heats easily and Sleepy  GREENWOOD.

The boys' pony race was one of the  best races of the meet. There were  five entries, Harewood, G. N. C. Hill;  Little Bob, D. Beath; Gray, Charlie J.  J. Winters; . Buckskin Billy, D. R.  Campbell, and Curlew, Geo. Archibald.  Curlew and Harewood made a hot race  for first place, the former winningfby  a head, and Harewood taking second  money. ��� '''' ������<���*���  Robbins came out on top in the Livery  men's race. He had three horses in  the race and their only.contestnnts  was J. Sterrets Charley. Charley had  too much flesh to run well and consequently Robbins' Roderick and Pintc  carried off first and second money.  Floyd Vaughn took three weeks to  bring a donkey from Midway for the  slow race. .His opponents were two  horses. The horses with changed riders  made a strong run for second money.  Itist as we go to press a telephone message from: the track states that the  donkey is at the three-quarter post and  will be in next week.. The judges got  tired waiting and awarded him first  money several days ago.  On Tuesday afternoon the rain had  made the track heavy, consequently  the horses struggled in the 1% mile  dash. Rossland Maid won first money,  Raceland was second and Victor third.  Sleepy Jim failing back to fourth  place.  The half mile race was won by Victor; Fairview, an Indian horse, taking  second money.  Floyd "Vaughn w..u the gymkana  race and Maraud \v:!'x second.  The:'judges .of the horse races were  Thos. Macitley, J. Keene and J..W.  Nelson. Starters were C. Scott Galloway andD. A. Cameron.  TUG OF WAR.  The tug of war which took place oh  the Pioneer hotel platform was a magnificent exhibition of strength and endurance. The opposing teams were  one from the Mother Lode mine and  one representing the city of Greenwood. The Greenwood team were declared winners, but there being some  dispute about'the result, another trial  was made when the Greenwood team  again won.  FIREMEN'S   RACES.  The two, races between the members  of the volunteer fire department were  keenly contested and attracted a large  amount of interest. The first race was  a wet test between the members of the  hook and ladder company and the hose  company. The first team consisted of  D. A. McKenzie (Capt.), P. J. McLeod,  F. Miller, W.H. Asquith, H. Louiser,  Frank Coates, Geo. Inkster, W. Medill,  Fred Wilson. The hose team was  made up of A. D. Hallett (Capt.), W.  S. Keith, W. A. Keith, J. Flood,  J. Moody, R. H. Palmer, E. H.  Mortimer, M. E.Miller and H. J. Miller. The wet test included a run of 100  yards to the hydrant at the corner of  Copper and Greenwood streets and 50  yards beyond. The hose team made  the run and had water turned on in 33  seconds. The hook and ladder team  had trouble in making connection with  the hydrant and were seven or eight  seconds longer. In the hub and hub  race for 200 yards and carrying 6  lengths of hose, the hook and ladder  company won after an exciting race.  BASEBALL.  An unfortunate accident interfered  with the success of the baseball match  between Greenwood and Grand Forks.  In the fourth inning H. Russell, one of  the best players in; the Grand Forks  team had his ankle fractured. ��� He was  endeavoring to return to first base and  in sliding in he met with the accident.  Dr. Foster was called and he had Russell removed to Mr. Edwards', residence  where the broken limb was set. Mr.  Russell was afterwards taken to the  Greenwood hospital where he is re-  ccvering. In the same inning W. G.  Keith and Moore ran for the same fly  with the result that Keith was forced  to retire for the rest of the game.  Only five innings were played. Grand  Forks had a good team while  Greenwood was weak in several places.  The score follows.  SMALL   SPORTS;  The small sports which 'were, held-on  Silver street could not be considered  satisfactory. The rain interfered  somewhat. Then the large crowd persisted in crowding in on the contestants, delaying matters materially.  The contestants themselves were slow  in making their entries with the result  that the time limit was reached before  the programme was completed.  The 100-yard dash was won by F. J.  Mitchell, with P. J. McLeod a close  second.  The boys' handicap race was won by  Ed. Medill, Chas. Russell second.  M. D. RichardsJ from Republic, won  the running long jump and V. Ryder  wassiond,  F. J. Mitchell and P. G. McLeod  again won first and second places in  the 200 yard dash.  J. A. Murray took first money for  putting the 16-pouud shot; P. G. McLeod was second.  The quarter mile race was won by,F.  J. Mitchell, P. J. McLeod second.  W. Tilton, M. D. Richards and P., J.  McL/eod struggled for first place in the  running high jump, but after repeated  trials they decided to divide the money  among them.  A. Hallett won the potato race and  R. Tilton was second.  ,DRILLING CONTEST.  What was easily the biggist drilling  tournament ever held in Canada closed  the two days' sports. The celebration  committee decided to offer $300 in  prices, 200 going to the winning team  and $100 to the second team.. This was  afterwards augumented by $75 for the  winning team given by the Pacific,  Windsor and Commercial hotels; Then  the mine owners and business men to  encourage local teams made up a $595  purse for them.

Mike  Burns  and E. Stevenson who figured  in Rossland contests;  Wm.  Ross  and  Dan   Murphy  two strong   men   from  Ymir represented  the outside miners.  The three local teams  were A. D. McLeod  and A.  L. Lynch; D. Clune and  J. Sullivan;  A.  h. Holmes and Owen  Sandry.     The judges  of   the contest  were   Mayor Hardy,   C.  J.  McArthur  and Harry .Howson.    The rock a huge  piece   of   hard   granite   was placed in  position   at   the   corner    Copper   and  Deadwood street.     The  first  team  to  try   their   prowess   were   Clune    and  Sullivan.    They went at it with  their  old  time  vigor  encouraged  by an enthusiastic crowd.    When   it  looked   as  if they   were   bound   to   make a new  record    for   themselves,   luck   turned  completely   against    them,   the   drill  stuck fast and nothing would   turn   it.  Denny  threw   down   his   hammer   in  disgust but  urged by   the   crowd   he  made a second effort.     It was  no  use  however and the champion  Boundary  creek drillers were forced to retire before 12 minutes had expired.     In  that  time they drilled 26^ inches.  Then came the powerful Mike Burns  and his partner. Everything ran  smoothly enough for them and drills  sunk deep into the rock with every  blow. When the 15 minutes expired  they had drilled 42 inches a new record  for Greenwood. They won $275 first  money for the contest.  A. D. McLeod and Al. Lynch were  the next contestants. They drilled  34# inches and won first. money for  Boundary creek which included $220 in  cash, two suites of clothes, two Stetson  hats and two pair shoes.  Wm. Ross was probably the best  driller who ascended the platform but  was handicapped by a partner not his  equal. They drilled 36|^ inches and  took second money for the outside  teams.  Holmes and Sandry the last team to  drill did some pretly work and succeeded in making 33j�� inches taking  second money for Boundary creek  teams, Their winnings were $95 in  cash, two suits of clothes, two pair of  shoes and two Stetson hats.  The contest throughout * was a  magnificent one. The only unfortunate  feature was Clune and Sullivan's mishap which probably changed the  result: ,.  THE   FIREWORKS.  Tuesday night A. W.

Resolution Passed By the Miners' Union of
The following resolution was adopted
at a meeting of the Rossland Miners'
Union No. 38, W. F. M., on Wednesday,
June 28th:
Whereas, on the night of June 20th,
1899,   there  was  given   in  the  city of
Rossland, B. C, what was known as a
public banquet  in  honor of our most
worthy   citizen,- ex-Governor Mackintosh,  one  who  has  the welfare of our
city at heart and has done untold good
for the community  at large.    But we
regret with shame that when the Hon.
Joseph Martin rose to address the ban-
quetters that a good  many of those so-
called gentlemen should so far forget
themselves as to jeer at one whom this
province might justly be tproud of, and
by   their   action   they dishonored the
guest of the evening, [ disgraced thenir
selves,  and  dragged in  the dust the
good name our city and  citizens have
alwaysen joyed for hospitality to those
. who may have mingled among us either
as invited guests or sojourning among
us as friends.    Therefore, be it further
Resolved, That   we,   the   Rossland
Miners'  Union,. No.  38,  W. F..of M.,
believe the   Hon; Joseph  Martin, attorney-general, was grossly insulted by
a  certain element  who  attended  the
said   public   banquet   because   of his
friendly   attitude   towards  the eight-
hour  law   passed   for  the  benefit  of
metalliferous miners in this   province.
And we further  believe such a course
was carefully planned by a vast majority of those who attended  the said
public banquet, and the motive for such
is easily understood by this union.'   Be
it further
Resolved, That we admire the manly
way in which the Hon. Joseph Martin
acquitted himself, and we condemn
such outrageous indecency by. the
would-be aristocracy who attended the
said public banquet. And in future
we pledge our support to the Hon.
Joseph Martin and his colleagues, who
have proved* by their noble acts that
they are the friends of the masses and
not the classes,3 and we call upon all
honorable citizens to denounce this
insult offered to one whom as a citizen
this province of British Columbia
might well feel proud of and Canada
: -may well admire..   .    t,. j       ....

Sound at Heart.
There is a lesson for labor leaders in
the almost unanimous public'sympathy
for the Grand Trunk trackmen.
Public opinion forced Sir Wilfred
Laurier to move away from his avowed
attitude of impartiality, and public
opinion developed a strength which
made even General Manager Hays unwilling to continue the fight.
The unanimity' and power, of this
public sentiment suggest the truth that
Canada is sound at heart on the question of the workingmen's right to living wages.
Every well-considered movement -to
give living wages to the toiler will be
supported by the strength of an almost
unanimous public sentiment. The
higher politics of Uade unionism, like
the attempt to deny civic employment
to unorganized labor, excite differences
of opinions, but there are no differences
to cripple any attempt to secure to the
Canadian toiler his right to a white
man's wages.—Toronto Telegram.

V) THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  QJ3ountorj Creefi 0me0  PUHLISHEn   WEEKLY   IIY  Tiie Boundary Creek Printins & Publishing  -Company, Limited.  Duncan Ross '������ Editor.  W. J. Uabiiek ��� Manager.  SATURDAY,  JULY .8.   1SW.  ACTION NECESSARY.  Cahinet dissensions and adininistra-  tis-e incompentency are having their  blighting effects upon the affairs of the  province. The proper administration  of the affairs of the province is no  light undertaking. The many-details  and those, important matters that c.in  be properly regulated only by sound  judgment and concerted action ure too  important to be controlled by mi- i who  when they are riot fighting : mong  themselves hi .Victoria, are bus\ making fools of themselves elsewhere.  The recent stage robbery brings out  one of those unsatisfactory conditions  that have arisen since the coming of  the Setnlin <>overnriient. ;��� For years  Southern Yale was free from crime,because F. S. Hussey, the superintendent  of provincial police, was allowed a free  hand in the work,of guarding the interests of the general public against  the depredations of lawless and viscious  men who infested the country border-  ���ring- on the international boundary line.  Joseph Martin, from Manitoba, knew  more about running a provincial police'  force than did Fred Hussey, who spent  years in the mining sections of the  province, and who was thoroughly acquainted with existing conditions and  the requirements to meet these conditions. Martin took charge of the department himself. He dismissed officers  where they were needed and retained  them where they were not needed. He  made it impossible and unprofitable  for police officers to keep horses; so  that when it was necessary to do police  duty they were forced to go on foot or  borrow their neighbors'. He did  everything possible to disorganize and  demoralize the departmant. The result was obvious. A stage carrying  Her Majesty's mails is held up in the  public highways. The robbers deliberately cut open the sack on the road  side and after securing what they could,  went their way without interruption.  No special effort has been ;made. to  secure their capture, simply because no  policeman are available to undertake  the duty.  Again the appointments of all the  local justices' of the peace have been  cancelled and their successors have not  been sworn in,' leaving a large district  without magistrates. To further complicate matters, the time in which the  new justices shall take the oath of  office has been extended to the first day  of August. The general-public are not  notified of this postponement; nor of  other announcements of the government. The expense of advertising such  announcements in the usual way is too  heavy and the public unless they subscribe for the B. C. Gazette may remain in ignorance regarding the proclamations of His Honor, the Eieten-  ant Governor in Council.      .  Nor is the police the only department  whose efficiency has been impaired.  The mining recorders' offices, the land  registery office and other offices with  which the public come into direct contact are found in an unsatisfactory  condition. Aggravating delays which  ought to be exceptions in well regulated  and properly conducted offices are now  the portion of nearly every. one attempting to do business. The building  of roads, trails and bridges are in the  same unsatisfactory condition.  After all, certain rules which are observed by the successful business firms  are needed in the proper administration of*public affairs. A firm with its  members quarrelling among themselves usually lands in the bankruptcy  court; a similar fate awaits a government, the members of which are busily  engaged in the work of destroying  each other.  Slowly but surely those who defeated  the Turner government are realizing  tlie fact that its successors do not represent them nor the country. It was  mere braggadocio for Joseph Martin to  tell the people of Rossland that he had  the votes behind him. He has nothing  of the kind. He had the votes behind  him when he assumed an important  position in the Semlin caainet, but the  votes will not follow him in his wild  plunging to political and personal ruin.  Already an organized effort is being  made on the coast to purge the government, such a movement being necessary because the premier is too weak  to do what he himself would like or the  country demands.  The situation is a critical one and  requires some careful engineering. A  return to the old order of things under  the Turner government will not be  tolerated,    'flipper's   garrttility would  be an unbearable incubus. The province has plenty of able and enterprising meii and it is hoped that the time  will place some of them in charge of  the affairs of the province.

No Clue to Robbers. Holdup Takes Place  near Rock Creek.  For the second time during- the last  two months Her Majesty's mails in  this district have been looted by highwaymen. The latest robbery is of a  serious nature, armed men commanding- the driver of the stage to stop' and  forcing him to throw out the mails.  This is the first time in the history -of  staging in the district that a hold-up  of this kind has happened.  About   two   o'clock   Saturday afternoon, Snodgrass'  stage for'Penticton  with Joe Snodgrass driving left.Green-  wood with through  mail from Grand  Forks and local mail for western points.  There-were  also four   passengers on  board,  one lady and three gentlemen.  The stage had left Rock Creekand was  ascending the : steep  grade near Kennedy   creek \when   two   masked   men  ��� came from  behind a large tree on the  bank overlooking   the   road.      ' They  commanded   Snodgrass   to    stop    the  stage.     He  paid no attention to them  when a peremptory order came backed  up by  two fierce' looking revolvers in  the hands of each of the men.    The  stage stopped.    One of the men  jumped down  and  took  a position  at  the  side  of the right  wheeler   while   the  other   remained  on the   bank   above..  Snodgrass asked them what they wanted.    "Give  us the express box "  was  the reply.     Snodgrass replied that he  had no express box.    " Well throw out  the mail".    With four revolvers  pointing al him Snodgrass'could do nothing  but comply.     He began throwing  out  the sacks.    The big heavy  mail sacks  wedged between and underneath  the  seats were not easy to unload  and  the  robbers becoming impatient at the   delay swore at Snodgrass and  suggested  a quicker movement.     " If  yoit  think  you can get these sacks out any quicker  I  wish  you  would come  up here and  try".    The robbers did not ��� accept   the  invitation   and   he   was   asked   if  he  wanted   the   newspaper   sacks.      The  man  at  the horses side who acted as  spokesman   stated   he   wanted   every-  think and  wanted it d���n quick. After  the mail sacks had been thrown out,  Snodgrass was asked to  move on   an  lose no time about.     Snodgrass  drove  on  and he' and the   passengers were  beginning to breath  freely when  one  of the masked men came out in front of  them on the road again  having taken  a short cut through  the woods.     You  are not  moving  very quickly he  said  "now  lose  no time   but   get".      Not  wishing a further interview, the necessary speed was secured and  maintained until Hoosier was reached.  In the meantime the stage met Phil  J. Hickey coming to Greenwood from  McKinney. He was informed of the  robbery but he thought those on the  stage were joking. He soon came up  to the mail sacks scattered on the road.  He saw a man a short distance away.  Mr. Hickey suggested to him that the  stage had been held up and the stranger  answered that he would got up and see  about it. Mr. Hickey did not remain  long in the vicinity but|came hurriedly  to Rock Creek.  At Hoosier two men were secured  who went back to the scene of the  hold-up and found the mail sacks.  Some of them had been left untouched  while others had been cut open. The  robbers did not even handle the  registered mail very carefully. One  letter which was cut open had S25  between its pages which were unmolested by the highwaymen. The mail was  taken to Hoosier and forwarded from  McKinney next morning. The robbers appeared to be  novices  and  were  apparently quite nervous about their  desperate undertaking. One, a tall  man had a mask which covered only  the upper portion of his face, while  the other a stouter man was masked in  a sheepskin which came down to his  chest.

An unfortunate accident happened a  few days ago at the site of the new  railway bridge being built over Sutherland creek, by Porter Bros. & Mc-  Arthur, for. the railway contractors.  By it a yourig man lost his life almost  instantly. ,  Shortly after starting work a heavy  batter post was being, hoisted into  position, when it began to totter, John  Girard, one .of the bridge carpenters,  saw it leaning, and jumped to get out  of the way. Unfortunately he sprang  in the wrong'direction, and the heavy  timber fell on him, crushing his head  and backi A horseman was dispatched  at once to Cascade for surgical assistance, but Girard twas- dead before he  could get there, having lived but a few  minutes after the accident. No'blame  is attached to.any one for the fatality.  Girard was a man of about 27 years',  and was unmarried. He came from  the town of Arnprior, Ontario, where  his people now reside. He was well  thought of by his fellow workmen and  employes, having been three or four  weeks on this bridge, before that on  the long bridge over Porcupine creek,  10 miles west of Brooklyn.

He Gives   His   Version   of  the   Resignation  Sensation.  A Victoria dispatch says : Attorney-  General Joseph Martin was interviewed  by a Globe reporter today, and made  the following statement about the  incident of Premier Senilin requesting  his resignation. Asked if the story  published in Vancouver was correct,  he replied : "Yes, it is perfectly correct." To the question : "Do you intend to resign?" Martin replied in his  well known emphatic way : "Certainly  not. If any one should resign it ought  to be Mr. Semi in, for he has not the  confidence of the whole of his cabinet,  or the members of the party in the  house."  The whole preceeding on the part of  the premier, Mr. Martin pronounced  most extraordinary. As was well  known, the position of "premier" was  not recognized in the constitution, and  because he happened to disagree with  a member of the cabinet no premier  had a right to request that member's  resignation, especially without consulting his colleagues.  "Mr. Senilin did not consult his  colleagues," went on Mr. Martin. "He  acted on his own responsibility, or  rather on the advice of Mr. Cotton, as  Mr. Semlin is a weak man and is  g-overened by what Mr. Cotton says.  The   whole  thing  is a conspiracy be  tween   Mr.   Semlin   arid   Mr.   Cotton.  Cotton is one of those  men   who likes  to   stand  behind a tree and push some  one else forward to.do his  work.    For  the   reasons  Mr.  Semlin  gave me for  asking me to resign, it  is   most extraordinary   that   he   should   Have   acted  without ever requesting me to give any  explanation,   and I told him so plainly  on Saturday."     The  idea of Mr. Semlin   giving  as   a  reason for his action  the   charge that  the attorney-general  had   neglected his office was, Mr. Martin said, ridiculous.    "Why, I defy any  one   to say that I  have neglected the  affairs of my office. Not only has everything been kept up to date there, but I  have been enabled to make  a  number  of savings,   and have put the department in a more efficient state  than it  ever was before.     It is very ridiculous  for Mr. Semlin to charge me with neglect  of my department after he made  such a muddle of the lands  and works  department that we had  to ' move  him  into the much less responsible department of provincial secretary, and he is  not even equal to carry on  that  in an  efficient way. It is Mr. Semlin's place, if  any one's, to resign,"   Mr.   Martin repeated.    "We only took   him in as premier because  we could not   help ourselves.    Mr. Cotton  did not want him  for  premier any  more than I did, but  we  could  not afford,   with  only a majority of,one,   to do without him just  then, and he threatened if he  was not  premier to kick over the whole applecart.    What  Mr.   Cotton wants is  the  whole thing himself."  The charge that he had given away  cabinet secrets, Mr. Martin characterized as absurd. "I never gave away  any cabinet secrets," he remarked,  "but when I found Mr. Cotton making  statements outside that were falsehoods, I was forced to place myself  right."  The excitement is extreme among  politicians, and a meeting of the opposition supporters in the city was held  today. The chances are that a coalition  will be made, with Mr. Martin out in  the cold.  Fmi  T   f  For Sale or to Let.���A heavy team  and wagon. Apply Fritz Haussknkk,  Greenwood, B. C.

J-^T - rf I *: r r*Tn*" v-~*y*~>**��^i**.1'  THE   BOUNDAKY   CREEK   TIMES.  /  7 I  SIR WILLIAM VAN HORNE.  in  harness  It did touch  The great  Character Sketch of the Retiring President of  the C. P. R.  The press of the country had anticipated   the   retirement  of  Sir William  Van  Home.    Not so long ago the announcement of such retirement would  have had the most disastrous effect upon the stock of the company.    Today  even those who were most pessimistic  in regard to the ultimate success of this  colossal undertaking say that it is one  of   the   greatest   institutions    of   the  world.    Sir William,   though desiring  for   several years past  to retire, had  said that he would remain  till the stock reachedpar.  that figure a  month  ago.  project which it was said would never  earn axle grease is consolidated.    The.  C.  P...R.-is a dividend^ earner.   The  possibilities before it are simply boundless.   The system itself is only in its  infancy.    It is,  in  fact, in process of  evolution.     It    will   grovv   with   the  growth, of the country���rather it will  direct,; accelerate,    that   growth.     It  would,be idle  to speculate as to what  would have happened had  Sir William  not. taken taken off his coat to the upbuilding.of a system which he found  inchoate and unconnected; what is certain  is, that its successes is due to his  genius for administration, to his great  coura'ge,;to his i tactful management of  men .arid   interests.  ' He   now  retires  and there, is no shock.   The public feel  thatthe C.P.  R.; is secure and strong  andpoteritial.r  Now that Sir William intends to bury  himself in his conservatory or his picture gallery (than which there is not a  finer-in .Canada).    He will take an in-  terestinthe great system, and, in the  capacity of chairman of the board of  directors,   will   offer his  counsel,! his  direction,- if   need be.    The   familiar  place,;however,will know him no more.  He will no longer be found sitting with  his  face to the back of his chair, legs  apart,   and  cigar  at a daring tilt���the  embodiment of the democrat day.    He  was able, but he was also the simplest  man   in   the   Q.   P.   R!   service.    He  generally worked  in his shirt sleeves.  He said "damn" with great unction���  in the  moment of stress.    He was intensely  human.    He had  a Jarge experience.    He asked no man to profess  anything; he, expected the record of the  life.-    No man   laughted   heartier  at  tin pot titles than the president of the  C.   P.   R.;   a   man   with   a  wife and  family, has often  to swallow his principles, ��� Tt   seemed   absurd   that   the  democratic  gentleman,  simple as the  first republicans of the United States,  should become Sir   William; no man  perceived  the absurdity more quickly  than the president himself.   At first,  indeed; he said "damn"  to  those who  presumed to give him his title; in time  (such   strange   creatures   are we) the  title   became   part   of   the   man.    He  could accept it with gravity; in society  there was never question as  to its propriety;   in   his  shirt-sleeves, with his  favorite cigar, it seemed grotesque in  the extreme.   ,  Mr.Morrisbn���that awful shareholder  who heckles the dignateries at.the annual meeting���laughed long and loud  at, the notioa of any human biped beting worth.$60,000. per annum. "Give a  man a big salary and he will cease to  work. He will hire. other people to  work, while himself will loaf." .This  is his dictum'. Sir William has many  able; assistants; the plan was his. He  schemed and thought and dared for the  C. P. R.. He put his courage; into the.  directorate. ��� He said "damn" to the  word "impossible." It was not the  amount of work he. did; it was the  presence of the man. His name was. a  tower of strength. It was in the name  the public-invested: : It was a striking  individuality which earned $60,000 a  year. He dared when others failed.  His imagination was almost oriental in  its warmth. The splendid optimism of  the man was worth���well, there is such  a thing as. not being able to pay a man  enough.  The most limited creature is various.  Who would suppose to look at Sir  William that he was a poet! Of course  I do not mean that he wrote poetry.  He felt it. It was his nature. To  illustrate, he.had.a passion for orchids.  He loved the lordly and the exotic in  plants* Paintings are his hobby. He  has a priceless collection of pictures in  his beautiful residence on Sherbrook  street, Montreal, which he has filled  with art treasures, from all lands, the  east especially affording its quota. He  is considered one of the best living  judges of etchings. And he has a  literary taste; loves good books, and  can quote with facility and effect.  Finally, he delights in travel, in  scenery, in visiting historic places.  Still a comparatively young man,  thousands of friends arid admirers will  hope that ample opportunity may be  given to Sir William to gratify the  bent of his mind,  The Cabinet Crisis.  The following Victoria dispatch under date of July 4th gives the details of  the cabinet crisis which was daily expected:  The  crisis  in the provincial cabinet  has come about, after its members have  been   working   at cross  purposes for  months.    Premier Senilin   has   taken  the bold stand of demanding the resignation   of   Attorney-General   Martin.  Fighting Joe refused point blank to accede  to  this request.    In the row that  followed in the attorney-general's office  at Victoria  last Saturday,   Martin repudiated   the right of the premier to  make  this demand.    He says  he will  never resign on such  a request, but  that it must come from  Governor Mc-  Innes, who is now in  Atlin.    Political  circles   here  and  in  Victoria are in a  great ferment over the affair.   Though  the details of the row have not yet been  made   public,  it is only too apparent  that   the   government,   as  at present  constituted, cannot live, the breach between  the premier and the chief 'law  officer of the crown  being  irreconcilable.    Premier Semlin asked for Martin's   resignation   on    three   different  counts.,. First, he was not attending to  the business of the department; second,  he has been disclosing the private business of the cabinet;  third,   because he  brought the governnient into disrepute  by   his   actions   and   remarks  at  the  Mackintosh     banquet     at   Rossland.  Martin refused positively to resign; insisting that the business of the department was carried on  well.    He denied  that he had betrayed  the government  secrets,  and said   that he  had never  been asked for  an .explanation of the  Rossland affair.   Martin then accused  Semlin of being a  weak  tool  in  the  handsof Cotton.   The government supporters  say a caucus  will  be held at  once  and that H. D. Helmcken,  Victoria, will be the new attorney-genernl.  Martin   took  the  labor  side  on   the  Deadman's Island question, which has  been one of the chief factors in breaking up the government.    Martin's supporters on the Island question,  only a  few  days  ago, announced   that   they  would do anything even  to the overthrow of the government, to obtain the  dismissal of Cotton.    It is considered  that a new election is  inevitable,   and  now it will be race between Cotton and  Martin, that will finish one man or the  other.  NOTICE.
