Mr. Robertson is Making Arrangements to Have  , Specimens From All the Mines--Mi-. Hogg,  of the Montreal Boundary Creek Company,  Is in the City���Mining Notes.  W.   F.   Robertson,    the    provincial  mineralogist, was in the city for a few  days this week.    He is making-  a  tour  of the mining- sections of the province  for   the   purpose of  making arrangements to secure a representative mineral, exhibit  for the Paris exposition.  Mr. Robertson was through  a portion  of  the  Koptenays   and he returned on  Friday    to    Slocan.    Mr.    Robertson  points out that such   an   exhibit   as is  contemplated   will    benefit   Boundary  Creek more than any other/ section of  the province.    The  wonderful mineral  resources of this district are not so well  known as they should be; hence the importance of having a thorough exhibit.  The government are  willing to defray  the cost of collecting the exhibit, but a  local   committee  acquainted-'-with the  district is required to do the work.   Mr.  Robertson   has   made application   for  half the space set apart for Canadian  minerals and as he backed  up his application with statistics to  prove  that  this province is entitled to the space he  is  confident that his request will   be  granted.    Mr.   Robertson  stated  that*  the specimens should be the very best  the mines can produce.   The maximum  size is an eight-inch cube.    The  speci  mens are to be brought  to Greenwood.  They will be stored here  until the  exhibit is  complete when  they will  be  boxed   and sent to Ottawa to be  forwarded  to Paris  with  the rest of the  Canadian exhibits.    Only 30  days are  av'a liable to collect specimens so that  ho   time  should  be lost in starting an  energetic   committee   to work,   Mine  owners can materially, assist the committee by sending  in  specimens  from  their; , properties... These     specimens  should be labelled.    The label should  give the district, camp, mine, depth at  which it was taken and assay values..  Mr. Robertson is anxious to make a  thorough examination of the district.  He will return 'in September and will  remain here for several weeks.  ^mH!?????Tm?????HTH??T?T?T????T?nT??H??T??Tf???!Tny???n?m???????T???T???m?n??T????T?r?T??Tf????????^  '" W. S: Keith, secretary of the Mining and Commercial Association, has  received a letter from J. A. T. Bell,  secretary of the Canadian Mining- Institute. Mr. Bell states that the excursion of the members of' the institute will be extended to the Boundary  Creek District. They were- under the  impression that Boundary Creek would  be difficult to reach, but the C. P. R.  officials has assured them that they  can come  to the Boundary Creek dis  trict over their line. Under the circumstances ', the members will be  pleased to visit this district. Mr. Bell  is unable to state in advance how  many will take in the excursion, but  further particulars will be forwarded  at a later date.  British Columbia has' just floated  successfully in London the loan of  ,��340,000, ��1,790,000, at a fraction over  96. This is most satisfactory, being  more than one per cent higher than  the best price obtained for any previous loan. ,The province's credit is  very good. Notwithstanding the taking off of some of the taxes last year,  the revenue for the fiscal year is away  over $1,500,000, or the largest ever  known, and nearly double what it was  four years ago.  A. L. McEwen, the well known mining engineer, arrived in the cit3" Tuesday after spending some time in Nelson. Before reaching the city Mr.  McEwen made a trip to the north fork  of the Kettle river. He visited the  Pathfinder, Golden Eagle and other  North Fork properties. Mr. McEwen  is well pleased with the outlook on the  North Fork and was particularly impressed with the Golden Eagle. He  states that it contains as clean and  rich looking body of ore as he had  seen for many a day. He spent Thursday with L. S. Moulton-Barrett ex-  aming .the Meyer's creek properties,  and will leave oh Sunday with Cliye  Pringle and Thos. Roadley for the  Similkameen country. Mr. McEwen  will spend some time in the Similkameen. He intends making Greenwood  his headquarters'for the summer.  Thursby  Pelham  left on Thursday  for Republic:    He has several valuable ,  properties in "Republic camp and will  make that town  his  headquarters for'  the summer.      " ' '   >.     .       "  This week's Gazette will contain an  notice of the incorporation of the  Boundary Homestake Mining company. ; The company has been organized with a capital of $1,000,000 to take  over the Homestake mine in Summit  camp. The prime movers' in the organization are Messrs. D. F. Mcintosh,  D. H. Beecher and D. A. Cameron. It  will be rembered that they-bonded the  Homestake from J. W. Cheer a few-  months ago. The property is an exceedingly promising one, and as soon  a"s the company is completely organized extensive  development work  will  1(1*  Ranging in price from  75 cents to $6.00.

Looking tired after a hot trip to  Penticton, but as energetic as ever, W.  L. Hogg of Montreal, arrived in the  city on Wednesday. It is only a short  time since Mr. Hogg was in the district, but, in the interval he succeeded-  in floating a big company for the purpose of purchasing and developing the  Sunset group in Deadwood camp. The  flotation was a popular and successful  one and the Montreal Boundary Creek '  company has a high standing on the  mining market in Montreal and Toronto. The company have ample  funds in the treasury to continue the  vigorous development of the property.  Already a big plant has been ordered,  but Mr. Hogg has not yet decided  whether to ship immediately or wait  until the railway is completed to the  mine. "I am afraid the railway is too  slow," he said yesterday. "I will  win my overcoats anyway." When  Mr. Hogg was here in April he received several wagers in the shape of  $45 overcoats from Greenwood men that  the railway would not be in Greenwood  by September 1st. At that time that  bet was considered a risky one, but  now there is every assurance that Mr.  Hogg will win. Mr. Hogg also stated  that there was a very favorable feeling  in the east towards Boundary Creek  district. All legitimate mining ventures would receive every encouragement.  Father Pat met the young men of  Greenwood at,a smoker in Barrett's  Hall on Saturday evening. Father  Pat delivered a characteristic address  in which some of his unique experiences on the trails were blended with the  work in connection with the up building of the Episcopal church in the  Boundary creek country. He announced that Rev. Mr. Hedley a brother of  Mr. Hedley of the Hall mines smelter  had chosen Greenwood from among  the towns in British Columbia and  would arrive here shortly. Mr. Hedly  is a well known divine. Father Pat  held services in Barrett's hall on Sunday morning. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  I.  II.   IIAM.KTT.  II. C.

A large number of eastern mining  men will visit the west this fall. The  members of the Canadian Mining institute have made arrangements for  their excursions to the west and the  American Institute of Mining Engineers will also come west this fall.  They .hold their convention in San  Francisco and intend taking in the  northern mining camps.  The institute has its headquarters in  New York city. It is not only one of  the oldest societies in the country, but  claims the largest membership of any  organization of mining engineers in  the world. The delegates will not only  come from all portions of the United  States, but from Mexico, Canada, Australia, China, Germany, England,  Peru, New Zeland. South Africa and,  in fact, from every known mineral  country zone on the globe.  The institute'expects- to leaye New  York about September 10. Its special  train of sleeping- cars will come; west  by way of Chicago, leaving that; city  September 16; thence by St. Paul,.  Butte, and Anaconda, Portland, and  thence to San Francisco, where, the  77th meeting of the institute will be  held. While in California excursions  will be taken to the various mineral  regions, such as Grass Valley, Nevada  City, Oroville, Jamestown, Lenora,  Dutch Flat, New Almaden, etc., and  the party will return east via Arizona,  taking in all the points of mining interest in that territory. The trip is  expected to consume 34 days."  The object of these meetings is to exchange information on all matters pertaining to mines, minerals and the  most recent inventions.in mining machinery. Geological formation of  mineral countries will be shown: by  maps scientifically drawn, while all  the latest appliances for working mines  will be scrutinized and criticised. The  meetings thus far held have been productive of much improvement in the  methods of working mines.  veloped to such an extent that the production of copper may not keep pace  with the future demand of this growing industry. It was therefore thought  that a syndicate which could control  the mines, could control their production and its price. The principal thing  to avoid so as to escape the fate of the  French syndicate, is the stimulation of  the production of copper. This is to be  done by getting all the great producers  in the syndicate, and regulate the price  of the metal by regulating its output.  It appears that this' has not yet been  accomplished. There are not a few  great copper producers which, thus far,  have held back and shown no desire to  enter it. They may never enter it. If  they should not it is apparent they may  become a disturbing element for the  syndicate to deal with���a sort of gadfly i upon the body corporate, stinging  it at most unexpected times and places.  Be this as it may we are assured of  several very important things; The  price of copper has made a long advanced step since the syndicate was  organized; it has reached over 19 cents  and now stands at 18; there is no indication that it will decline in price in  the near future and-that the Parrot, a  member of the syndicate, has shut  down. It is left for the on-looker to  guess why. It may be to make repairs,  it may be to curtail the production of  the metal.  .

Hickey, manager of the Fontenoy mine in Camp McKinney, and  also largely interested in the Slocan,  has returned from a trip to Camp McKinney, and left for Sandon Sunday  morning. He said: "I only made a  flying trip into Camp McKinney, to  see how the development was progressing on the Fontenoy. I found' the>  property looking splendid. The shaft  is. now down 100 feet and we propose  sinking another 20 feet before starting;  to drift on the ledge. It is a big one  and measures at the.present depth from  eight to nine feet. The last assay I obtained gave astonishingly high values,  viz:, $80 in gold, 34 ounces silver and  14 per cent. leadri We have erected our  hoist and boiler.. The boiler is of 35-  horse power and the hoist is capable of  sinking to a depth of 500 feet.  "The camp is looking up well. There  is quite a stir there again, something  like last winter. The hoist for the  Waterloo has arrived and is being, installed. I can not give you any information of the other mines, as I only  put in 24 hours in the camp."���-Spokes-  man Review.  Road to. Republic.  The Great Northern may not build  its branch to Republic thts year, says  the. Spokesman Review. The construction may be postponed until next year,  not from desire of the officials of the  road, but from necessity. It is said it  will be impossibleto secure the necessary laborers. Railroad contractors  now in the city say positively that the  necessary men can not be gathered to-  ;gether to complete the' work this year.  The unusual demand for. railroad laborers has practically cleaned out the  supply, and nearly all the. lines now  .under construction have calls out for  more men; The harvest season is coming on, and this is expected to take  many men from the grading: crews,  who find it pays them better to work in  the grain fields. ���  The farmers of the surrounding districts are becoming even more anxious  oyer the lack of labor than the railroad  contractors. Railroad construction in  many instances may be delayed without material loss, but grain must be  harvested when ripe. There is reason  toifear the farmers will experience considerable difficulty in securing sufficient harvest hands.  ��� �����������������������������*�������������*���������.�������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������..#������������*�����������������. a O * . ��� ��� ��'. ��� �� ��� �� ��� '  ...mm...u.mm...........................................��...��.��.........��.��mm.t'm..  x Also Are Carrying a Full Line of  BOOTS, SHOES, AND GENTS' FURNISHINGS.

The Price of Copper,  The ruling price for copper in the  New York market is now 18 -ceil ts with  but trilling variations. It was a point  or two higher in April and May and  declined to the figures named in June.  It may advance before the end of the  month or it may decline. Dealers as  well as producers have no accurate data  upon which to base an estimate. One  fact may, however, serve as a pointer,  and that is this:. The American Copper company,which was formed to control the copper mines of the country  and their output will, if it can, not  only regulate the price of the metal,  but its production, thus preserving an  equilibrium between the demand and  supply. We say this will be done, if  possible, but it is not yet demonstrated  that it can be.  In 1887 a French syndicate  made an  attempt to control the copper output of  the world.    In that year the production  of copper in the United States was 81,-  000  tons.    In   1888  it was 114,000 tons;  in 1899 the production was still  larger.  The amount was more than the syndicate  could  purchase arid   it collapsed.  The conditions are somewhat different  now.    Last year the   production of the  metal reached over over  235,0000  tons  in this country   alone,   the   home   consumption   being   estimated   at  114,000  tons, the average weekly  consumption  being   put  at  2,192 tons.    One reason  given for the present price of the metal  is, that electrical  engineering  has de-  Repair the Roads.  The squabbles among members of  the government are having 'a far reaching effect. Matters which materially  affect the interests of the electors are  neglected. The state of the trunk  roads is the most striking commentary  on the incompetency of a government  gone wrong. The roads between Greenwood and Grand Forks are in a disgraceful condition. These roads are  much travelled and ought to be kept in  a proper state of repair. Culverts are  broken down so that freighters are  taking chances of losing their horses  and breaking their waggons. A few  men under careful management would  make a satisfactory change in a week.  This road, at least, ought to be attended to at once. Other roads in the  district although not in such a disgraceful conditipn require attention.  It would be all right for Martin and  Cotton to carry on their wordy warfare,  provided it affected nothing but their  own personal interests, unfortunately,  however, the business of the province  is being neglected since those who are  supposed to be in control are kept busy  quarrelling among themselves.

All will not be harmony at the conference of the  boards of trade to be  held in Rossland shortly judging from  the Nelson  Tribune's report of a  recent meeting of the  Nelson  board of  trade.   A short  time  ago the Nelson  board decided that the eight hour law  and   other   important questions were  proper   themes  for   discuss.igg, at the  conference.    A  resolution tor, send no  delegates was voted  down on the cast-  ������ ing vote of the  chairman.    After  this  was done the   Tribune's report states:  The   chairman   then  read  the list of  questions  which   the   council   of ��� the  board had   suggested   should   be discussed at the board of trade conference.  They were briefly (1)  the encourage-  , ment of the lead   mining industry by  increased duties upon   lead  products;'  (2)  the encouragement   of   silver-lead  smelting by the admission free of duty  into Canada of lead bullion  smelted in  Canada   and   refined   in   the "United  States; (3) the  desirability of increasing the representation of Kootenay in  the house of commons; and (4) the consideration of the eight-hour law and its  effect upon the district.  S. S. Taylor said that he would object to the consideration of the eight-  hour law. ' In the first place the eight-  hour law had been passed by the legislature. It was a reform in the labor  laws" of the province, and it was well  known in the history of all countries  that when any such reforms were once  passed they were never repealed. To  set up a discussion upon the serious  question of the repeal of the present  law was therefore attempting the impossible. Such legislation was never  varied or materially amended. Another objection was that the board in  taking up the question invited a clash  with the interest in the community  known as the labor interest. It was  stepping in between two factions and  would thereby destroy the usefulness  of the board. The question was also  at the present time a political one. For  this reason the board of trade could  not take up the question without stultifying itself and injuring the usefulness of the board so far as the general  public was concerned. He thought the  delegates should be instructed not to  discuss or vote for or against any current political question.  J. Roderick Robertson said that he  would like to discuss the question and  called upon John Houston to take the  chair. He said he did not regard the  eight-hour question as settled and for  that reason desired to have it discussed. He said that the measure had  been put through the legislature at the  extreme end of the session.  John A. Turner here took the point  of order that the president was talking,  politics.  The chairman held that the point  wan well taken and instructed, the  speaker that he might tell the members how the operation of the law affected him as a mine owner.  The president then proceeded by saying that a measure had been passed  which materially affected a large section of the mining community, and  seeing that the question was going to  be brought up by the other boards of  trade it appeared to him that it was a  proper subject to discuss with a view  to ascertaining how the law could be  amended. He thought that shutting  the question off was shirking responsibility. He moved in amendment that  the clause stand.  The chairman ruled the amendment  out of order on the ground that it sim-  ..ply negatived the original motion.  The president then resumed the chair  and A. H. Kelly took the floor in opposition to the motion. He said that he  did not see the use of sending delegates to the conference if they could  not have the privilege of discussing  such matters of vital importance as the  eight-hour law and questions effecting  the lead "mining industry.  John A. Turner replied that he objected to the whole programme on the  ���ground that they were all political  questions.  J. J. Campbell reminded the board  that they had passed resolutions dealing with the lumber industry and he  expressed the opinion that.it would be  difficult for the board to draw the line.  He thought that questions which affected the interests of the community  were proper subjects for discussion.  His impression was that the members  of the different governments were glad  to get the ideas of boards of trade  upon such matters.  S. S. Taylor in reply said that there  was a difference between the question  of lead duties and the eight-hour law.  The question of duties was an open  question in that the government was  prepared to admit certain articles free  and impose a duty upon others.    There  ��was nothing fixed about it. With the  eight-hour law it was altogether different. A dominant party had taken a  definite stand'and made it a political  issue of the party.  ���   " ���  .  No other member wishing to speak,  the motion was put and carried on a  division of 13 to 6, which struck the  eight-hour law question off the list.   ;  John Houston then moved that if the  question of the eight-hour law was referred to the conference of the boards  of trade or put to a vote that delegates  from Nelson be instructed to vote  against the consideration of the question and refrain from any speaking  upon it. ,..,  J. Roderick Robinson from,the chair  opposed the resolution. He said that  when the question came up of appointing delegates to represent the  Nelson board it never occurred to him  that the delegates would have their  tongues tied so far as not being able  to express their opinion upon any question which might come up. At the  time no such idea was suggested. He  had expressed at the time a desire to  be relieved of the office of delegate and  he would inform the members that lie  Would probably exercise his right of  appointing a substitute to proceed to  Rossland in his place.  The question was then put and the  motion instructing the delegates to let  the eight-hour question severely alone  was carried on. a vote of eleven to six.  John A. Turner then moved,that the  three other questions recommended by  the council of the board for consideration at the Rossland conference be  struck out. This was seconded by  John Houston and carried without any  attempt at discussion.  tract shall be determined by the company's published statements.

An Ottawa dispatch says: Borrowers were'championed by Dr. Sprouie,  Mr. McMullen and others in the house  banking and commerce committee on  the Dominion Permanent Loan company's amended bill this morning. Dr.  Sprouie characterized the average system of lending in Canada "a swindling system," and held that no more  charters or bills should be sanctioned  by parliament that did not protect borrowers from higher interest than was  fair- and he understood that under the  present system it was stated that a  loan was to be repaid, say with 6 per  cent, interest on the principal; whereas  the interest was in reality on the full  amount originally borrowed- irrespective' of repayment. Mr. McMullen  figured out an illustration, showing  the interest which was represented at 6  per cent, per annum in reality averaged 29 per cent. He favored the insertion of a clause similar to that recently adopted by the Ontario legislature, providing that the exact interest  to be paid shall be set forth in all contracts.  Another view was that it would be  sufficient to require that a clause might  be inserted providing that the company  should be bound by its published rates  and literature.  Very strong assertions were made as  to the company's rules and by-laws,  which drew . forth a protest from Mr.  McCarthy that unless such assertions  were founded on fact they should not  be made; but if founded on fact the  sooner an investigation was commenced  the better.  Hon. Mr. Fielding said it was clear  to him that if the committee felt that  the company's practices had not been  all they should be, the bill should stand  over.   ".  E. F. Clarke said all the expectations  of the company might not have been  realized, but it could not be pretended  that there had been any sharp practice  or operations in the remotest degree  justifying the use of the term "swindling" or anything of that sort.  Mr. Holmes reported cases where the  borrowers were to repay loans, with interest in full, by ninety-six equal  monthly payments, and when those  were paid, instead of the loan being  discharged the company presented a  fresh claim for fifteen more payments  under its rules and regulations, its  business not having realized the expectations on which its rates were calculated.  Mr. Clarke protested against the  statement, the cases being before the  courts.  E. B. Osier said the company was  in much the same position as all loan  companies as well as insurance companies. None of them had quite realized what they confidently counted on  fifteen years ago, owing to the steady  reduction of earnings obtainable by  the invested funds.  Mr. Henderson saw no reason for refusing to pass the bill, but in future  applications for new charters there  should be strict limitations.  Mr. Mclnnes offered an additional  clause to be inserted in the bill, providing that the conditions of the  con-  Far-Fetched Dispatch Sent Ont From Vancouver.  As everybody is naturally interested  in the political crisis, the following  dispatch sent from Vancouver is published for what it is worth:  A coalition ministry is the latest development in the" arrangements going  on in provincial government circles.  It is announced that this arrangement  has been made which will obviate the  necessity of a general election. The  program is for Governor Mclnnes to  act on Premier Semlin's advice and  dismiss Martin. The proposed'plan includes H.D. Helmcken, ��� the senior  member of Victoria city, as Martin's  successor. Two other opposition members will be given portfolios, but just  who they will be has. not yet been  finally decided. Semlin and Cotton  will remain in, the government. They  have agreed that one of the conditions  of the coalition shall be a changed  policy. The eight-hour law affecting  miners, and anti-alien legislation will  be repealed. There has-been some little opposition to the suggestion of a  coalition government by certain opposition supporters, but their views have  been overruled by the majority of the  opposition members, who contend there  is little use of insisting upon the defeat  of the government when an arrangement probably satisfactory to the country can be perfected by a coalition.  The new opposition will be headed by  Martin and consist of those opposed to  the coalition.  &>  EWERY  HAUTIKGEl!  0> i<  & PORTMAM  4��  ��f*  Proprietors.  i> i>  Lager Beer  PATERNIZE HOME INDUSTRY.  w4f,.

Manager  Duncan Ross   W. J.   HAHHIiK.  SATURDAY,  JULY 15," 1.899.  FREIGHT RATES TO BOUNDARY  CREEK.  Greenwood merchants cannot derive  much satisfaction from the schedule of  freight rates < prepared by Mr. Peters,  which was published in the Boundary  'Ckehk Times last week. The rates  , do not lower the cost of transportation  to Greenwood. ' The cost of hauling-  second-class freig-ht from Robson to  Cascade will be 58 cents per 100 lbs.  or S11.60 per ton. It is scarcely probable that freighters will i>e induced to  haul from Cascade to Greenwood at a  less rate than S25 per ton, making- a  total cost from Robson of S36.60. Now  the rate to Robson will be as high as  that to Bossburg- or Penticton and as  freighters do not charge more than $35  per ton from either of the latter points,  the cost of transportation will not be  be lessened until such time as freight  is hauled by rail to a nearer point than  Cascade. Under the circumstances,  Greenwood merchants ought to make a  special effort to secure any reasonable  advantage from the C. P. R. Their  competitors across the mountain will  be in a much better position under the  new arrangement than the Boundary  Creek merchants.  ��� We do not lose sig-ht of the fact that  there is a possibility of expediting the  arrival of g-oods by rail ' to Cascade, but we do think that if a special  effort be made, more satisfactory arrangements as to cost may be secured.  The most reasonable proposition to  place before Mr. Peters is a through  rate from the coast and eastern points  to Cascade. When the railway is completed the Boundary Creek merchants  should insist on the company fixing- a  rate for Midway"and making that rate  apply to all points in the Boundary  Creek district.: Similar arrangements  are made in other localities and it is  only fair that it should apply here. A  railway company has no rig-lit to advance the interest of any competitive  town by' g-iving- it better rates than  other towns in the same district. This  is a most important question that  oug-ht to be immediately taken up by  the Board of Trade. Now is the time  to act; not when the Canadian Pacific  Railway company has established its  rates.  that he is premier and as such should  have absolute control over the members of his cabinet. Mr. Martin's  position is untenable. He cannot  honorablj' remain a member of the  cabinet and at the same time heap  abuse upon his colleag-ues through the  public press. ��� If Mr. Semlin does not  want him and Mr. Martin honestly believes that other members of the cabinet, including the premier, do not possess the confidence of the electors or  the supporters of the g-overnment he  should step down and out and fig-ht in  the open. The position is simply a  travesty upon constitutional usage.  Sir  John   Bourinot, the hig-hest authority   on   constitutional  usage, says  that  the  premier's course is a logical  one.    The premier is the choice of the  lieutenant-governor and  the  members  are the choice of the premier!    In the  present  instance  Mr.   Semlin   has   in  face of Mr. Martin's refusal, taken the  only  position   left  him.    He has communicated  with  the lieutenant-gover  nor informing him of Mr. Martin's re  fusal and asking- for his dismissal.    If  the  governor  refuses  to  dismiss  Mr  Martin,   then   Mr.   Semlin's  only re  course is to tender his resignation  and  the whole g-overnment will be an   end  In   that    event    the    g-overnor    will  grant a dissolution or  calL upon some  one else to form  a government. . Thi  Times   stated a few  weeks agfo that  while Mr. Cotton and Mr. Martin were  fig-hting- each other the position of pre  mier mig-ht go to some one else.    It is  possible that this statement may shortly be vei"ified.  F. J. MITCHELL  JWSJtcma6i7e i'. Zai��otf  HAS JUST  A LARGE  SPRING m SUMMER  SUITINGS.  PERFECT TIT  GUARANTEED.

Apropos of the row  between the farmer premier of British   Columbia and  Joseph Martin, the story of the latter's  exit  from   the   Manitoba cabinet with  another farmer premier will prove interesting.    It   is  related   that  Martin  was   anxious   that   Greenway   should  quit.    He talked the matter  over  with  some other members of the cabinet and  they cousented to act  with  Martin in  demanding    Green-way's    resignation.  Greenway   learning-    what     was    going- on was in a quandry.    He  did not  wish to resign and knew  he  could not  carry on a government without the assistance of his   recalcitrant colleagues.  Iu   his  extremity   he   consulted   F.  C.  Wade,    who    has   since   prominently  figured  in  Klondyke affairs.    "Wade's  advice was laconic  enoug-h:    "Call the  bluff."    "What   do   you   mean?" said  Greenway.  "Accept the resignations."  "But that will break theg-overnment."  "Accept them anyway," replied Wade.  "You can not be in any worse position  and I don't think you   will   have much  trouble."   So  there  was an executive  meeting   and  all   the  members of the  government    were   present.    "Gentlemen,"   said   Mr.   Greenway,   "I   have  been    informed   that  some of you are  anxious to resign unless I   retire   from  the premiership.    Now   if you wish  to  do so I am ready to receive  your resignations now."    "I am not satisfied with  the leadership," said Joe Martin, "and  unless   you   retire  I  wish to resign."  "Your  resignation  is   accepted," said  Greenway; "any others?"    Not  one of  the   other   cabinet   ministers   moved.  The bluff worked.    Martin got out and  was succeeded by Hon. Clifford Sifton.  It  will   be   interesting  to  watch political events in the province.    Will the  farmer premier circumvent the   tactics  of "Fig-hting" Joe?  The mines of Boundary Creek are  tributary to Greenwood. . . ,  Joe Martin is still " Fig-hting-" Joe.  Greenwood, B. c  NEXT DOOR TO TELEPHONE  CORYELL'S MAP, Price $1.25.

R. and Great northern���  The Branch Lines���Survey to the Similika-  raeen Country.  A. K. Stuart, collector -.''.of inland revenue,1 returned this week from a trip  to Christiana Lake. While" in that  vicinity he enjoyed seeing a railway  track for the first time in months.  The track is now five or six miles on  this side of Gladstone. Good progress  is being made on the bridges, so that  by the end of July the' company will  be in a position to haul freight to Cascade. F. W. Peters, the general freig'ht  agent for the Koetenay country, is at  present in the Boundary Creek country. He was in Cascade on Wednesday. The object of his visit is to make  arrangements for hauling freight by  the new railway. Mr. Peters stated  that the C. P. R. are not making rates  or hauling freight from. Robson'westward" The contractors will have charge  of the line, until the railway is completed.  Slowly but surely the grade of the  main line is Hearing completion  through the Boundary Creek valley  and good progress is being made with  the branch Hnex to Deadwood camp.  The grade is practically completed  from Niagara to Midway, except one  or two short distances and the high  trestle across Boundary creek at the  entrance to the city. The timbers for  this bridge have been cut at McPher-  son's mill and will be hauled by teams  to Boundary creek.  The Republic Miner surmises that  the Great Northern and the C. P. R.  have made arrangements to connect at  Carson' in order that ores from Republic and other camps on the reservation  may be hauled to the Granby smelter.  It states that the Great Northern survey party is now in the vicinity of Carson and is running lines to connect  with the projected branch of the C. P.  R. from Columbia to the international  boundary line. If there be anything  in the Miner's supposition ��� and it  seems feasible enough���it shows that  many of the arguments raised by the  C. P. R. to. defeat the Corbin charter  were manufactured for the occasion.  The C. P. R. officials ridiculed the contention that the Corbin road would  haul American ores into Canada to be  smelted, but it now looks as if the big  railway company were laying plans  with the same object in view.  Mr. Englund who had charge of the  Cascade section of the Columbia and  Western has left to assist Mr. Odell in  the survey from Rock Creek westward.  Mr. Englund will begin at Penticton  and will work towards the Similika-|  meen country.  A large force of men are at work  clearing the right-of-way for the branch  line from Eholt to Central camp. Some  sub-contracts have been let on this  branch line and the work of construction has already commenced.  on Monday evening a letter from Toronto was opened, out of which dropped  two $50 checks, one from C. D. Massie,  Fsq., and one' from Mrs. Massie-  Treble. Three handsome amounts had  already been received from Toronto���  Senator Cox, $50; J. W. Flavelle, Esq.  $50; Timothy Eaton, Esq., $25. About  three weeks ago $50 was sent by Miss  Jennie Humphrey of Moncton, N. B.  Large subscriptions have been taken  in this city, one for $100 and several  for $50 each. Many have helped as  thejr were able with sums reaching  from 50 cents to $25. Several indefinite promises of tangible help have  come from citizens of. Greenwood and  other cities of the Dominion, some of  which will certainly materialize in  cheques for $50 or more.  The committee is satisfied that when  the church has been dedicated, the debt  will not exceed $500, and there is  ground for hoping that it will be  handed over to the conference free of,  encumbrance.

The first general meeting of the  shareholders of the Sailor Consolidated  Mining and Milling company of Camp  McKinney, Limited, was held last  week, in the Temple building, Toronto.  Over 1,000,000 shares were represented  by proxy and in person. The financial  statement was read and was unanimously endorsed by the shareholders.  This statement showed that the company received some $39,104 and that  having purchased the Rover and Alice  fraction, together with all- other expenses up to date, the company have  nearly $30,000 in the treasury besides a  reserve of 200,000 shares of treasury  stock. The retiring board of directors  were re-elected by acclamation, with  the addition of Mr. William Chaplin of  St. Catherines, president of the Wel-  land Wale Manufacturing company,  who succeeds Mr. J. B. McArthur,who,  owing to pressure of business and ill-  health, was compelled to resign. The  board ot directors are therefore as follows: William Chaplin of St. Catharines, Sir Geo, A. Kirkpatrick, Chas.  B.. Watts, Diver of Toronto, T. A.  Crane of Toronto and Motreal, A. L.  Davis (Mayor of Peterboro), Dr. J. A.  Stevenson of Trenton, Thomas Mil-  burn and William C. Fox of Toronto.  Recommendations were read from the  manager of the mine to instal hoisting  plant and engines at once, and also intimating that several parties were  anxious to locate on the townsite. A  meeting of the directors will be held,  and they will decide upon, the best  course to be pursued, and it is likely  that one of them, with a well known  mining engineer, will leave for the  mine within the next few days.

We do not worry about the market of our stocks at all, for our interests are pooled. ���' We are trying to get  our values out of.the ground."  When asked if he proposed to go into  any other undertakings in the province  outside of the smelter aud the mines,  he smilingly replied: "That is rather a  leading question. You see money is  always ready for sound investment  anywhere and the jiroviuce offers many  such, but it would be premature for me  to give out information before anything ^definite had been concluded.  Yes, there is plenty of eastern Canada  capital for investment out west. Eastern Canada is waking .up to the immense mining possibilities of the province, that the mining men of''your  cit3r have so energeticall}' opened up.  You see outside of the mere question of  investment for gain that only benefits  the individual capital is not only developing the west but also the east.  More mining development means more  employment, greater population in the  west that in turn means prosperity to  the manufacturers of the east, pros-  perit3' to a country., The same .applies  to this' country. The development of  California caused a stimulus of business in the factories of Maine. One  section had of necessity to supply the  other���both benefited. Today the same  thing is in progress in Canada; the  mines of British Columbia, while being largely developed by eastern Canada capital, are in turn causing-prosperity to-the manufacturing centers of  Ontario and Quebec.

In referring to.  the smelter lie said:  "I can assure you it will go tbroughi  Mr. Graves is backed by a substantial  and thoroughly conservative class of  eastern Canadian business men and  whatever we propose to do we will do.  What we are now building is simply a  section���500 tons only���of what we all  hope will be a great smelting undertaking. As- occasion requires the capacity will be increased.    The plans of  George Ben, of the Nelson Hardware  company, who visited the Boundary  Creek country a short time ago, was  interviewed hy the Nelson Miner. The  interviewed or the interviewer was  badly mixed up. Mr. Ben is credited  with saying that the Winnipeg is the  nearest mine to Greenwood and that it  had been closed through the enforcement of the eight-hour law. There are  a score of mines nearer Greenwood  than the Winnipeg and that mine has  not been closed. There are many other  inaccuracies in the interview equally  glaring.

The following- very interesting correspondence, the publication of which  caused ' a sensation on the coast, explains itself :',.'���  Provincial Secretary's Office,  Victoria, July 3,1899.  Dear Mr. Martin;���Yours of the 1st  reached me this p. m. In it you say  you think it would be more satisfactory  if I would put in writing-the ground  upon which I asked you to resign your  seat in my government. :���<'���  I think I mentioned your absence  from.-your office.  The discussion of executive matters  outside. of; the . council, and to parties  '   not of the council.  Yourspeech at the Rossland banquet,  in which you threatened that an appropriation should not be expended because some of these persons had offended you.   Yours respectfully,  C. A.. Semlin.  ''' MARTIN'S REPLY.  Hon. Mr. Martin replied at length as  follows:  July 5, 1899.  Hon. C. A. Semlin, Premier:  Dear Mr. Semlin:���Your letter of the  3rd inst., in which you give your reasons for requesting me to resign, duly  received.       . ."   ���'  , The first reason is my absence from,  office. Allow me , to point out this is  the first occasion in ,- which - you have  ' found fault with me for this, although  I have from the very first, attended to  my private practice, and it had been  understood that I should do so. It has,  I understand, not been considered in  the past that the attorney-general for  the time being should give up his  practice, aiid if such a rule were made  it would, I think, be considered by all  that it would be impossible to obtain  the services of ai.,competent lawyer to  act as attorne^g-eneral. Allow me to  say, however, tliafcjiiy department is in  first class shape, and-I am perfectly  willing to have ijs present state compared with that of any other department of the government. You are  quite aware that that cannot be said  of your own- departmental management. If, in> your opinion the failure  to manage a department is a reeson  why;. a .member- of the government  should resign his position, then I am  surprised that you did not resign from  the government when it became evident to everyone thatyou had entirely  failed to administer, properly the department of lands and works, and you  had to admit this by consenting to a  transfer to the department of provincial  secretary. This transfer took place, as  you are well aware, for' no other reason  except that you were; utterly unfit to  administer the department of land and  works. The matters in that department had got into such a condition  that the members of the government  were unwilling to take any further responsibility with regard to it, unless  you gave it up.  Your next reason is that I have discussed executive matters outside of the  council and to parties not of the council. . This charge has no truth in it,  whatever, and I would be glad if you  would furnish particulars of any such  discussion. I think I am aware, however, of what you refer to. I fancy it is  the discussion which occurred when  the Vancouver delegation appeared before the government with regard to  Deadman's island. What I did then  was to inform the delegation that the  statements made at that meeting and  prior thereto by the Hon. Mr. Cotton  were incorrect, and that he was simply  expressing his own opinion, instead of  the opinion of the government.  He undertook to speak in the name  of the government. You will remember that in this connection Mr. Cotton  telegraphed Mayor Garden that the  government had decided to determine  the question of title of Deadman's  island before they considered what deposition they would make of it. You  are aware that the government had  never decided upon any such policy,  but in order to back up his position,  Mr. Cotton deliberately falsified the  the records of the council to amend the  same and strike out from the records  a statement to the above effect, as the  same had never been agreed upon by  the council, and never should have  been in the records. It appeal's to me  that you would have been quite justified in asking for Mr. Cotton's dismissal upon the above grounds. The last  reason that you give is that at Rossland I threatened that an appropriation should not be expended because  some of those present had offended me.  You are aware that you have never  asked me for an explanation with regard to the correctness of the report in  the newspapers of the Rossland matter,  simmmmmmmmmmmfe!

COPPER ST.  ??ummmummmiiiiuiiiiiis:  are hard up for a reason to ask for ray  resignation when you.would fall back  upon one of thia kind. I,was probably  indiscreet at Rossland, and I should  have been very happy.to have given  you a fullexplanation of what occurred  there had you asked me for the same,  and I feel sure after, hearing my explanation you would have felt that it  was entirely out of place to request my  resignation on a ground of that kind.  Now, Mr. Semlin, having dealt with  the three reasons given by you for asking--my.-" resignation; I beg to repeat in  writing what I stated to you on Saturday���that I did not propose to resign  my position in the cabinet.and I charge  that the reasons given by you are only  pretences, and that you have been induced to ask for my resignation by Mr.  Cotton, that you and Mr. Cotton have  entered into a conspiracy to wreck the  present government and drive from it  all the Liberals, with the idea of forming a Conservative government.  I am informed and believe that you  have already negotiated.with Mr. Hel-  meken and Mr. Higgins with a view of  their entering a government of this  kind. I know that you have not consulted either Dr. McKechnie or Mr.  Hume with regard to asking for my  resignation. This contemplated course  on the part of Mr. Cotton and yourself  is, in my opinion, a gross outrage upon  the electors of this province. Dominion party lines were expressly ignored  by the late government and the present  government parties in the last genera  election. While it appears that there  are in the present house a majority of  Conservatives; that is a mure accident  and they were not elected as such.  For you, therefore, to attempt to form  a government which would depend for  its support upon these gentlemen who  happen to be Conservatives, would, it  appears to me, entirely nullify the vote  which took place ou July 9 last. I feel  satisfied that your attempt to carry out  a conspiracy of this nature will not  meet with success. At any rate you  can depend upon every effort being  made by me to frustrate it, and I feel  certain that the Conservatives of the  province who voted for the last opposition will be entirely opposed to any  such attempt. I have urged you to call  the supporters of the government in  the house together in caucus to consider the Deadman's island question,  which has created such an agitation in  the city of Vancouver. I think that  course should be adopted, and I think  in addition that it is absolutely necessary now that our supporters should be  called together to determine whether  your course in calling for my resignation is in accordance with their wishes.  If it is, I am prepared at once to resign, but I protest against your right  to ask for my resignation.  You are as a matter of tact the  premier of this province, but you are  well aware of the circumstances under  which you obtained that position. At  a caucus which took place of government supporters in Vancouver, shortly  after th? formation of the government,  called upon to form an administration,  and had done so, as I contend, in de-  finance to your obligations to your supporters. When the caucus took place  a motion approving of your course was  proposed and withdrawn, as it could  get no support. It was intended then  that a vote should be taken as to who  should be the leader Of the party. You,  however, stated, that if you were not  confirmed in your position as premier,  3'ou would resign from the house. As  at that time we had only a majority of  one, we could not afford to lose a single  supporter, and you were therefore in a  position to compel us to accept your  terms.":  In doing so you were distinctly informed by a number of members present that they only, agreed to retain you  as premier because they were forced by  your action to do so and you were distinctly informed that the matter was  simply allowed to stand until the party  became strong enough to deal with the  question upon its merits. You are,  therefore, the premier of this province  only by sufferance, and in demanding  my resignation you do not command a  majority of the supporters of the government in the. house. If my statement upon this point is correct, then,  instead of my resigning from the government/it is your duty to take that  step at once. If you have any doubt  as to whether my statement is correct  or not, that doubt can be dispelled by  calling a caucus of the government  supporters forthwith. -,  ... ,.

R. right-of-  way agent, has returned from a visit  to the coast.  D. . McLeod, chief of Mann, Foley  Bros. & Larsen's commissary department, was in the city this week.  A. Allenbtirg, the well known insurance man who , arrived from Spolc.ne  last week, has been ill for a   few days.  Theo. Kruger, of Osoyoos, is seriously ill. Last week he was visited by Rev.  H. Irwin who rode from Greenwood to  see him.  W. L. Hogg yesterday visited the J.  S. in Summit camp, which he recently  .bonded. A development plant has been  ordered for the property.  Wm. Foster and J. R. Gilbert," two  Butte mining experts who were in the  district three months ago, have returned and are  examining  properties.  A report came'from Republic that 26  persons were arrested there a few days  ago" for horsestealing���they include  some young men from Midway and  vicinity. The report could, not be  authenticated at the time of writing^  The Cameron pump recently ordered  by the Lemon Co. through Harry  Howson agent for the Wm. Hamilton  Manufacturing Company has arrived  at the mine and is working satisfactorily.. The development of the Lemon  properties is now being pushed  vigorously.        -   "  J. D. Sword, the general agent of the  James Cooper Manufacturing company  spent a day at the Sunset with Mr.  Hogg and Superintendent Mcfarlane.  The location for the big plant was decided upon and arrangements . made  for its installation.  Mr. S. H. C. Miner, Mrs. and Miss  Miner of Granby, Que., A. L. White, of  Montreal, and Mr. Carroll of New  York, have arrived in Spokane. Mr.  Miner is president and Mr. White secretary of the Knob Hill company.  They will visit the mine and smelter  before returning east.  Geo. A. Guess is on6e more under  maternal care, his mother coming from  Kingston, Ont., to visit her son in the  west. Mrs. Guess will probably spend  the most of the summer here. She is  accompanied by Master Guess who is  not yet as big as George, but time will  cure this defect.  F. W. Peters, general C. P. R.  freight agent, arrived in the city  Thursday evening, accompanied by  Mr. Hannington. Mr. Peters is booking freight by the Columbia & Western, which he expects will be in Cascade by August 1st.

McDonald, Wood and Denz-  ler, have given a three months' extension on the bond held by A. J. Mc-  Mullan on the Snowshoe.

Now that the plant is  installed, a good showing will be made  during the next three months.  The committee having the. matter in  charge have secured thirty-five signatures to the petition for the incorporation of the Greenwood Board of Trade.

Dan MacLaren, of Carson, was in  the city this week on his way home  from Kamloops. He was on the stage  at the time of the runaway. He jumped  and escaped with a few bruises. Mr.  MacLaren states that Mr. McDuff  escaped with a badly sprained ankle,  but Mr. Bash had his leg broken.  During the visit of F. B. Buck he  bonded the Lulo claim in Greenwood  camp from Randolph Stuart and H. R.  Eliott. This week the first payment  of 10 per cent was made on account of  the bond. The Lulo is a promising  property adjoining the Red Rock.  The Toronto World of recent date  states that it had a call from William  Bullock Webster, a prominent mining  man from Keremeous camp, in Southern British Columbia. Keremeous  camp is situated in the Boundary country to the west of McKinney, Greenwood, Okanagan and other well known  ore-bearing districts, and is said to be  in the same mineral bearing belt as  these camps. It is on the direct line of  the Crow's Nest Pass railway extension through Southern Kootenay. At  present it can be reached either from  Penticton or Oosayos. So. far it  is comparatively unknown, because it  is out of the general line of traffic, but  once the Crow's Nest railway is ran  through the district, it will, it is main-  ained, by "those who know it, forge  fast to the front. Mr. Bullock Webster states that the camp is a very  promising one. Its ore bodies are of  the copper-gold  character,  similar to  THE.  �� e��  #>\ ,-  "PERFECT &k��-  .SHIRT   cS'v,.

For the first time since the line was  iu operation, Wednesday's Camp McKinney stage met with a rather serious  accident. Joe Snodgrass with seven  passengers on board the stage started  from McKinney and had gone only a  short distance when the whiffle trees  of the leaders became separated from  the stage pole. Immediately the horses  started at a terrific pace down the hill.  Thos. Donald was on the box with the  driver. He assisted and the horses  were turned into the side hill and  stopped. In the meantime D. McDuff,  well known in Greenwood, and C. B.  Bash of the Victoria mine jumped out.  They were rather seriously injured  and it was reported that each had a leg  broken. Other passengers were badly  shaken up, but escaped serious injury.  The stage was delayed by the runaway  and did not reach the city until after  six o'clock. Messrs.
