First Meeting of the Boundary Homestake  Mining Company���Officers Elected���Annual  Meeting or'tlie Winnipeg Company���Prominent Mining Men Coming Next Week���Mining  Notes. .  The  first meeting- of the Boundary  Homestake Mining- company was held  in,, the Canadian  Bank of  Commerce  Thursday  evening.    Duncan   F.   Mcintosh was in the chair. The following  officers were elected: President, Duncan  F.  Mcintosh, -who is  also preident.of  the Winnipeg company; vice-president,  E. J. Riordan, a  wholesale jeweler of  Spokane;   treasurer, - ID.   H. Beecher,  president of the First National Bank,  Grand Forks,N. D.; secretary, A. Bates,  who  is  acting secretary of the Winnipeg-company; directors,  in addition to  Messrs.McIntbsh,Riordan and Beecher,  E. J. Dyer, president of the Exchange  National   Bank,    Spokane;   Geo,   E.  Towle,  ca&hier,  First National Bank,  Park Rjtver; Renold Harris, M. E., and  D.   A.   Cameron,   manager  Canadian  Bank   of   Commerce.     Mr.  Mcintosh  was appointed managing director and  Mr.   Harris consuling   engineer. . All  the treasury stock necessary to provide  an ample fund for the development of  the property has already been placed.  D.   W.  Morgan  returned to the city  on Thursday  after having spent ten  days on Copper mountain in the Simil-  tanieen district;    Mr. Morgan and his  associates have many  valuable properties on Copper mountain.   They also  have  a town site in the vicinity which  will be placed on the market in a short  time.  Commerce, Wm. McKenzie of railway  and mining fame, Mr. Pellatt, Mr.  Jaffray and half a dozen other mining  and financial men will visit Greenwood  and McKenzie, Mann & Co's mining-  properties in Greenwood camp. Senator Cox and party are coining- in by  way of Pehticton. Mr. McKenzie left  Toronto for Greenwood several days  ago. The party will examine the  mines and arrive at some definite .conclusion relative to their development.,  As published in the Times several  weeks ago, a big- company has been  successfully organized to acquire all  the properties held by McKenzie.Mann  &Co.     ''? ''���"'.'  . '"���'.��� ;;'.  On McRae creek the Chamberlain, in  the Burnt Basin, B. C, has been, developed by a vertical shaft, sunk to a  depth of nearly 20 feet. In this shaft  was found a vein of sylvanitc ore, a  mineral'rarely met with, but which is  exceedingly valuable. It is a telluride  of gold and silver, of a steel grey,  silver-white or brass-yellow color. ��� Ore  of this character has been found at  Cripple Creek, Colo. Picked samples  of Chamberlain ore g-ave 11 ounces of  g-old and 15 ounces of silver, or $229  per ton.   An average assay runs S22.  A force of six men is at work on the  Four   Hundred   group  in   Welling-ton  camp, in the Boundary country.   The  property has lately ��� been  incorporated'  as   the   Welling-ton   Mines Company,  Limited, by Minneapolis and  St. Paul  capital, and it is the intention to sink  the shaft which is now down 36 feet,' to  a depth of 100 feet and then oegin cross-  cutting-.     Work   is   being   pushed as  rapidly as possible with two shifts and  the   showing-   is  steadily   increasing.  Assays taken from  the bottom of the_ ,  present shaft have run   up   as   high"  as $67.  D. H. Beecher treasurer and W. F.  Honey secretary of the Winnipeg  Mining & Smelting- company arrived  from Dakota on Wednesday last. Mr.  Honey will remain in .the district  but Mr. BeecHer's visit will not be a  lengthy one. The annual meeting- of  the Winnipeg Company is being- held  to-day (Friday). The different reports  show the.company to be in a most  flourishing condition. A large amount  of work has been done and a big plant  has been installed since the last  annual meeting and there are still  ample funds in the treasury for future  development v/ork. Mr. Beecher  stated that work on the Homestake  which he and his associates in the  Winnipeg bonded, will be started in  a few days. This work will be under  the direction and superintendence of  Duncan Mcintosh, the manager of the  Winnipeg- Company, and it is-therefore  needless to say that no time will be  lost in opening- up the ore bodies on  the property.  ���  The stream of prominent visitors  from the east is not exhausted by any  means. Next week another big party  will be here. Hon. Senator Cox  president of  the   Canadian  Bank  of  B. C. At. & n.

Holbroak Tells About the Possibilities of  the Properties. ^  D. A. Holbrook was in Rossland last  week.    The Miner says: x~ ' -  Mr. D. A. Holbrook is in the city  from Boundary City. He brought with  him a number of handsome specimens  from the properties of the Boundary  Creek Mining- and Milling- company's  propeeties. The Handsomest specimens  are from the? Gold Bug- claim. They  carry larg-e quantities of native silver,  besides 12 ounces'in gold. It Is claimed,  that the vein from which this was  taken is about four feet in width, and  that the ore will averag-e ��500 to the  ton. This seems very high, but a look  at the specimens would convince the  most skeptical that this average is  under rather than over the amount of  the values that the, ore carries. The  other specimens from the Spokane and  S. H. B. averages $40.44 to the ton.  This ore carries a large percentage of  copper. Work is being carried on under  the superintendence ' of Mr. Alex,  Sharp, late foreman of the Columbia &  Kootenay, and J. E. Leckie, consulting  engineer. Mr. Sharp is sanguine about  these properties and he says the group  is as good as the Columbia and Kootenay. The work at present in progress  consists of sinking- a shaft and running- a tunnel into'the Gold Bug. Both  are on the same vein. The intention  is to increase the force as the occasion  demands and to ship as soon as the  railroad is ready to receive the ore.  Superintendent Sharp says he is ready  to begin the shipping of ore at any  time.  The London & Canadian syndicate,  represented here by Hector McRae,  have the controlling interest: The  Gold Bug- claim was- oniy recently purchased by Mr. Lionel H. Harris for  joint account of the Boundary Creek  company and his syndicate.  Mr. Holbrook says he returned a day  or two since from a round of the prop?  erties in which he is interested on  Meyer's creek, Toroda creek and other  points. In fact, he says, no matter  where the boom strikes in any portion  of that country he will be in the midst  of it, for he has properties of promise  nearly everywhere. He has been in  the Boundary Creek country for the  past eight years, and when he went in  there his determination was to get in  on the ground floor on mining and he  has succeeded in doing so.  ���Book Store���  Copper St.     2C     Greenwood.

The gallant Kentucky colonel and  His kinckerbockered colleag-ue broug-lit  safely to the city last Saturday the  greater portion of the mental machinery that runs the Canadian Pacific  Kail way in the west. There was "Wm.  Whyte, a big Scotchman, who, is  general manager of the C.P. R. lines  west of Fort William; R. Marpole, who  is superintendent of the western  division; L. A. Hamilton, the quiet unassuming g-entleman who manipulates  townsites and lands for the C.P. R.  and always gets the best of it for his  company; and W. F. Tye, who is responsible for the speedy construction  of 100 miles of railway through the  roughest country on earth.. ; Last and  lfiBt in stature, but by no means in the  importance of the position he holds in  t!-.e './nsiriess world.was C. C. Chip man.  Mr. Chipman is commissioner of the  Hudson's Bay company and.the company's chief executive officer in Canada. He is consequently at the;head of  the oldest and one of the most powerful  business corporations in Canada.  The party visited Nelson, Rossland  and other Kootenay , points.- u They  came to Christina Lake on a work-  train, and from there road behind the  company's flyers to; the city.  : A railway magnate is the most unsatisfactory individual in the world to  interview; a Hudson's Bay company's  commissioner is little better. The railway mag-nate talks when it suits the  purposes of the railway; not when there  is a g-ood story to be told. He sometimes g-ets loquacious in order to hide  some important news he is not anxious  to make public. A newspaper representative leaves him in doubt and uncertainty. He is, never sure that he  has got all that is coming to him in the  shape of copy.  It is decidedly interesting- to listen to  Mr. Whyte's pointed languag-e and  strong- accent, but equally unprofitable  from a railway news column standpoint. He was quite ready to discuss  the weather and the mines, and the  great natural resources, but he knew  nothing- about railways of the present'  or contemplated railways of the future.  ''You have a wonderful city here," he  said. "It has a substantial appearance  and an air of prosperity."  "When will the railway be completed  to Greenwood, Mr. Whyte?" ,  "The track is laid to Christina Lake.  There are no more bridges to delay  work and I see no reason why the road  should not be here by the end of  Aug-ust."  "Are you going- to continue construction toPenticton," was then asked.  Now that was one of questions that  Mr. Whyte did not care to answer and  he didn't answer., It was a matter under consideration and other phases  that railway men as well as politicians  have commited to memory, g-ave no  indication of the company,s intentions  regarding the Penticton line.  Mr. Marpole has made a reputation  for successful railway work in the  west, but more particularly for inventing a plan that represses the irrepressible newspaper man. The C. P. R.  officials until Mr. Marpole became  superintendent were very much frightened by black type and scare-head  lines. They absolutely refused to give  any information concerning- accidents  along- the line, because they believed  the company's business would be injured by the loud type and the newspaper man's imagination. Naturally  the newspapers kicked and newspapers  kicks are uncomfortable even for the  C. P. R. So Mr. Marpole with his  sweetest smile promised to give written  reports of all accidents on the railway.  These reports are models because of  their brevity and lack of anything that  would tend to alarm a timid travlling--  public- Mr. Marpole had nothing to  say for publication excepting that he  was anxious to reach Penticton before  Tuesday morning's steamer left and  consequently regretted the short time  at his disposal in Greenwood. When  the railway was completed he and the  rest of the party would visit Greenwood often.  Mr. L. A. Hamilton is no stranger  in the city. He has been here before.  He is as affable and courteous as ever,  but he didn't furnish much copy. He  was giad to see Greenwood growing- so  rapidly and notwithstanding- any  rumors to the contrary, the C. P. R. intended to encourage its growth. The  company had large property interests  in the city and its policy would not be  such  as  would  in any way jeopardize  the value of their property.  Mr. Tye never talks. He works. He  builds railways in a hurry and in an  equally big- hurry g-ets out of the way  of the newspaper man searching- for  copy.  Mr. C. C. Chipman didn't say that he  intended opening a branch of the Hudson's Bay company in Greenwood. He  may intend to do so but no advance  notice will be g-iven. He did express  himself as much pleased with the  Boundary Creek district. Nothing-  could exceed, he said, the kindness of  of those with whom he came in contact  and their desire to impart information  in regard to the resources and present  position of the various mining interests  and business of the district. As to the  object of his visit, the commissioner  stated that it was to become acquainted  with. the local conditions applying.  The Hudson's Bay company has great  faith in the possibilities of Southern  British Columbia, but he naturally did  not care to express any decided opinions  until after he had an opportunity of  visiting- the various places.  Mr. Chipman had decided opinions  concerning- the.class of men in Greenwood. As he examined critically the  jolly crowd at the club smoker he said:  '���The very best asset a city can have is  men such as I see here tonig-ht. A city  with good wideawake, enterprising-  business men is sure to grow and be  prosperous.'!  The party left on Sunday morning  for Midway.

Number of Eastern' Capitalists Inspecting  Their Big Boundary Creek Mining Properties���Interesting Observations From Experienced Men.  "There should be no jealously among  the towns of Boundary Creek, district.  The mines are beyond the prospect  stage. Smelters will be built in differ-  , ent localities, the hills and valleys between Cascade and Midway will be settled by a prosperous people. There  will be business for all." ,,  Thie speaker was Mr. S. H. C.Miner,  the president of the Granby Rubber  company. Mr. Miner is one of the  shrewdest and most successful businessmen in Canada. He is the moving- spirit behind all of.. Mr. Graves'  successful ventures. He visited Boundary Creek last year arid was then well  ������,, satisfied with . his investments; after  visiting-the mines and the smelter site  he is doubly satisfied this year.  The remarks quoted above were made  by Mr. Mirier in  conversation' with a  Times'   representative. , He   was discussing- the smelter ? site and the keen  rivalry    between    the   cities   in   the  v. Boundary Creek ' country.    Mr.  Miner  has   the   greatest   confidence   in   the  future of the district and believes that  " the development of one section will as-  .     sist in the growth and development of  other portions. ���  "Our company   selected the   North  Fork site for our smelter," he said, "because it was  the  best site available.  Other smelters will be built and other  sites must necessarily be selected.   We  got the first choice and took the best."  Mr. Mirier gave some very interesting- details concerning- the flotation of  the   Granby , Consolidated   Mining- &  Smelting company.    He was anxious  that his own  business friends should  have the first opportunity of interesting   themselves   in  the' flotation, but  there was such  a demand for shares  that   he consented  to opening a subscription list for 48 hours. In that time  the shares were over subscribed by' upwards   of   two v millions.    Mr.   Miner  very properly- attributes the success of  the Granby company . to the methods  pursued in connection with the Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides.    The shares in  these companies  were taken  by himself  and   his: friends.   There ,was no  effort made to boom  the stock.   They  gave   more   attention  to the development of the, mines' than . to the stock  exchang-ei with the result that the investing public had every confidence in  the ventures.  Mr. Miner has with him a big party.  He is accompanied by Mrs. Miner and  Miss Miner, Mr. Wm. Farwell, general  manager of the Eastern Townships  Bank; Mr. Brown, Q. C, a director of  the same institution; Mr. W. H. Robinson, manager at Granby, Que.'; Mr. A.  C. Flumerfelt, general manager of the  Ames-Holden company and Mr. and  Mrs. Jay P. Graves.  Mr. Farwell, Mr. Robinson and Mr.  Brown are associated with one*of the  strongest and most enterprising banking- institutions in the country; They'  have already established a branch at  Grand Forks, and it is quite probable  that, they will open other branches in  the province.  Mr. Graves was as full of business as  ever.1 He stated that the work of constructing- the big smelter was now in  full swing. The flume, one mile in  length, which is to carry the waters of  the North Fork during the construction  of the dam, is nearly completed, and  work on the dam will be started in two  weeks. Contracts for the lumber, the  brick and lime have been let. The  brick is of the very best quality. He  and Mr. Miner believe that unless  something unforseen happens, the  smelter will be completed by the first  of the year.  Speaking about the mines, Mr.  Graves stated that the new 80-horse  power boiler and 50-horse power hoist  would be at the mines before today  and will be in operation within 30 days.  Another hoist has been purchased for  the Knob Hill mine. The hoist which  just arrived can be used to the 1,000-  foot level. It has a capacity of 6,000  pounds and will hoist 500 feet in three  minutes. The No. 2 shaft on the Ironsides is down 320 feet, and the No.  1 shaft 210 feet. At the 200-foot level  there are 1,400 feet of work. This extends to the Victoria claim adjoining.  There is a 250-foot drift on the Victoria  ground, cutting- through 40 feet of  mixed ore. This drift is expected to  reach the main ledge on the Victoria  40 feet farther.  The Granby Consolidated Mining- &  Smelting company had acquired theVic  toria,.-Etna,PhcEnix and Fourth of July  properties, making a valuable asset in  addition  to the smelter.   Mr. Graves I  recently purchased the Gray Eagle  from Jno. Stevens and partner. The  Gray Eagle adjoins the Knob Hill on  the south and west.  Mr. A. C. Flumerfelt is a shareholder  in the Knob Hill and Ironsides companies. He visited the district with  Mr. Miner last year and was agreeably  surprised at the rapid development  which has taken place. . Mr. Flumerfelt is one of Victoria's leading business men who keeps himself in close  touch with the development of the  province. He stated that business was  in a healthy condition in every . part  of the province, but that the eight-hour  law would materially lessen the volume  in the mining districts and particularly  in Slocan. Speaking about the political situation he stated that no one  could foretell the outcome, but one  thing appeared certain, the Semlin  government is doomed.  ��� The party returned to Phoenix on  Wednesday afternoon and left on  Thursday morning for Grand Forks.

Hakiie'k ...., -Manager.  SATURDAY,  JULY 29,   1899.  ADVERTISING THE  CITY.  Without discussing the  administrative  abilities  of   the  city fathers, we  have a sufficient high  appreciation  of  their civic patriotism,- to  believe   that  they   will,   not   seriously    consider   a  proposition to send $900 to Spokane for  the privilege of having the Spokesman  Review say nice things about  the city  and,, district.    The   scheme   of blackmailing cities has worked successfully  elsewhere, but we  do not think it' will  in   Greenwood"    The   scheme   is    one  scarcely in consonance with honest journalism.    The Review is an exceedingly  enterprising paper.    It reaches put for  the news  of every portion of the territory  it  is   pleased   to call the "Inland  Empire," but evidently there must  be  be a,consideration attached to the publication  of  the  news.    Stripped bare,  the  Review's  proposition   is simply a  threat  to stifle  any  Greenwood news  unless payment is made for its publication.    The truth regarding Greenwood  and Boundary Creek district  is sufficient.    It is  scarcely  possible that  the  city fathers will for a moment countenance   exaggerated   reports   regarding  the resources of either city and district.  If  the  city  council   has any money to  expend in advertising,   the members  ahould   encourage  ��� the   local   papers.  They make every effort to publish  the  news each week. We would respectfully  suggest the   advisability   of dividing  S900- between   The   Times    and   the  Miner.   Let the council, subscribe for  225 copies of each  paper; pay for them-  in  advance and send them to the different  mining and* financial   centers.  The  returns  would  be far more satis-  factory than  by  bribing the Spokesman-Review  to say nice things about  us.    The principle involved in the suggestion also applies to other industries."  The best way to encourage the development of a city is by encouraging those  who are spending energy and money in  building^it up'.    We want 'a strong local  patriotism.    We want Greenwood  business men of every class, to be encouraged in preference to outsiders.  We feel quite sure that the Spokesman-Review fully agrees with the contention. It would be the first to raise  a strong objection if the Spokane city  council voted a comparatively large  sum of money to subsidize, an eastern  newspaper.  of politicians' quarrels in order to  secure the rights of a neglected section.  A NEW JUDGE.  The supplementary estimates recently introduced in,the House of Commons, include the sum of S2.400, yearly  salary for an additional county court  judge, in British Columbia. It is presumed that the object of the vote is to  provide another judge for the Koot-  enay-Boundary Creek district. The  necessity for this appointment is apparent. The district has grown so  rapidly and so many new towns have  sprung up that one judge cannot give  each section that time and attention  which the importance of the legal business requires.  Long- before the salary was voted  there was a rumor current that the appointment was to go to a gentleman  whose chief recommendation for the  position lies in the fact that his career  as a lawyer has been a failure and out  of sympathy he should be made a  judtre. If the bench is to be made a  refuse for incompetents, the appointment will be a perfect one.  F.J.MITCHELL  A LARGE  HAS JUST  RECEIVED  SPRING # SUMMER  SUITINGS.  PERPECT.

It would indeed be difficult to determine the outcome of the present political crisis. , At the time of writing  nothing has been heard concerning  the caucus of government supporters  at Victoria, but it is scarcely probable  that the members of the badly disrupted party have solved a satisfactory  solution. Pending a settlement of the  difficulties at the coast it is the duty of  the electors of Kootenayand Boundary  Creek to organize for the purpose of  making strong demands tor fairer  play. It is useless disguising the fact  that heretofore Southern British Columbia has not received from either  government that consideration its importance demands. In the matter of  representation, in the expenditure of  public monej', in the appointment of  the officers necessary to meet the requirements of the mining industry or  the administration of justice Kootenay  and Boundary Creek have been stinted  to pamper smaller arid less important  sections of the province. The differences among the members of the Semlin cabinet and the negotiations for a  coalition government have severed any  political ties that bound the electors of  the district mentioned to either political faction. Would it not be well to  take advantage of the opportunity and  unite in an offensive and defensive political organization in the interests of  Kootenay and Boundary Creek?  Joe Martin must get out. When he  makes his exit the Semlin government  will be a weak one. As one of the opposition organs put it: "Turnerism is  dead." It is a splendid time to begin  afresh. With a strong feeling against  party lines.with the Semlin party mortally weakened by internal dissensions,  with Turnerism dead, the road is open  for new men and new ideas. One  strong and astute man could carry  himself into power under existtng conditions. Six strong men from Kootenay and Boundary Creek, working  with one object in view, could make a  new party and a new government and  dictate its policy.  It is perfectly fair to take advantage J  Mr. Alston Appointed at Last Meeting of the  City Council.  Mr. Chas. Alston .was ^appointed-city  engineer at the last meeting of the city  council held on Monday evening, with  Mayor Hardy in the chair and Aid.  Galloway, Wood, Sutherland and Cameron present.  The council passed a resolution urging the appointment of a deputy registrar of the county court in the city.  Mr. Baker, representing the Spokes-  man-Reyiew, offered in consideration  of $900 to advertise the city for a stated  time. The council decided to take a  week to consider the matter.  Several by-laws were advanced a  stage and the council adjourned.  CORYELL'S MAP, Price $1.25.

He was a visitor to  Boundary, Creek- in- the   early   days  when,the Knob Hill and Ironsides were  prospects.'    Mr. -White   is;' naturally  gratified   at   the remarkable develop-  , ment since., he -first.visited the.properr  ties in which he is interested.    He was  particularly   surprised    at   the   rapid  strides  made by  Greenwood since his  visit last year.  ' "Your city is a wonder," he said to a  Times' representative. "I flattered  myself on being able to guide Mr.'Car-  roll through any. portion .of the Boundary, Creek country, but when11 reached  Greenwood I was lost. My old hotel  had. vanished and I found instead substantial blocks filling Copper staeet  where a year ago there was a preponderance of vacant lots. Tne Boundary  Creek district will make several large  cities and judging, from appearances  Greenwood has been, getting her share  of the trade of this wonderful; mining-  region."  Although Mr. Carroll is making3his  first visit to Boundary Creek, he is no  stranger to. mining camps. He has  ; travelled extensively through the mining districts of the United States and  Mexico. Mr. Carroll is a bright young  New York; financial, man. .He represents Mr. Graves' companies in New  York and has kept himself well posted  on Boundary Creek mining matters.  He did not realize, however, the enormous possibilities of the district until  he visited it personally.  The other members of the party will  arrive in Greenwood during the week.  They intend visiting not only the Knob  Hill and Ironsides but the different  camps in the district.  A   Former  Greenwood   Resident  Married In  Vancouver.   ���  , The News-Advertiser of the 21st  inst. contains the following account of  the marriag-e of Mr. Evelyn Fenwick  Smith and Miss Stuart, both well  known in Greenwood: .  On Thursday, July 20th, at 10:30 a.  m., in Christ's church, Vancouver, by  the rector', Rev. L. N. Norman Tucker,  the marriage was solemnized of Mr.  Evelyn Fenwick Smith, second son of  W. O. Smith, Esq., of Montreal, to  Rhoda Perpetua, only daughter of the  late Rev. J. Kilbee Stuart, M. A., of  Church Gresley, Staffordshire, and  niece of Robert Stuart, Esq., Q. C, of  England.  There was a ; large and fashionable  attendance of friends and guests at the  church, which'had been most prettily  decorated by the deft hands of several  of the ladies. The bride, attired in  traditional white, was;;given away by  her brother,;Mr. Allan Kilbee Stuart,  of the Engineer's Department, and was  attended by five bridesmaids, Miss  Mabel Selwyn, Miss Stella Drainie,  Miss Mary, L. Harding, Miss Beatrice  Holmes and Miss Dorthy Cowper-  thwaite. , Mr. Angus Kilbee Stuart, of  Greenwood,-B. C, of which place the  groom is a proriiinent citizen, took on  himself the .onus of best man, while  the groomsmen were Messrs. William  S; CoplandjRandolph Stuart and Geo;  J. Dyke.  The service was fully choral, and  with Mr. A. K. Wolfenden at the organ, was rendered .exquisitely, the  choir, of which the bride is a one-time  member, being.present in force.,'....  On the conclusion of the service,'the  wedding party arid a large number of.  guests repaired to the residence of Mr.  and Mrs. Allan K. Stuart, Richard  street, where the wedding breakfast  was served.  Mr. and Mrs. Evelyn Smith left" by  the Imperial Limited for Montreal, en  route for England and the Continent  of Europe,., where an extended honeymoon will be.spent. The bride'looked  charming in.a going away costume of  pale primrose material. Her departure  from this city, and especially from the  parish, is much deplored, as her whole-  souled' work for the ' church'- and Ichoir  has always been unfailing and "unstinted, and her place will be hard to  fill. Therefore are the loving congratulations of her many friends tempered with sincere regret.  ���E HUNTER-KENDRIGK CO. LTD  SHOES  THE MASSES.

Members Feared an Election and Deserted  Him; Wordy War Between Semlin, Cotton  and Martin. The Boy Orator Slated as  His Successor.  Special to Boundary Creek Times.'  Victoria, July 28.���Hon Joseph  Martin has resigned. He left the  government with as much sang froid  as if he has annihilated his archenemy Francis Carter-Cotton. He is still  in the ring ready to meet al1. comers. The  * government caucus was not a peaceful  gathering of politicians. . All the  members supporting the government  excepting three were present. Semlin  anil Cotton on the one side and fighting "Joe" on the other made things  warm for a while and the members  looked on too serious to appreciate the  fight. There were about six supporters  of Martin when the fight opened, but  as it became more and more evident,  that the only way to avoid a general  election was by getting rid of the recalcitrant attorney-general, they deserted him. Martin then resigned. It  is rumored that W. W. B. Mclunes, the  boy orator, will succeed Martin as attorney-general. Martin .is armed with  evidence against Cotton, gathered at  Denver, Col., and . the fight is not yet  over.  Transfers.  July 31.  Copper King-, }�� interest, F. C. Woods to H.  G.  Plummer.

R.E.Lee  Brown,  familarly known  ..-as   "Barbarian"    Brown   is   expected  herein a few days.    Mr.  Brown's experts are already in the district.    That  the readers of The Times may become  '    better acquainted with Mr. Brown, the  following-  pen  picture of the famous  mining-'man is copied from the Spokesman-Review:  Everyoody in Spokane knows Barbarian Brown. Robert E. Lee Brown  is the more civilized name which the  gentleman now sits down occasionally  in the registers of Spokane's leading  hotels, but in days gone by he earned'  the title of "Barbarian" and doubtless  it will require more millions than his  present great fortune has brought him  to wipe out that sobriquet. It will be  remembered that Brown was the lucky  winner of a million or more from the  government presided over by Oom Paul  in the Transvaal. The details of the  story have been lacking- for the simple  reason that Brown is skilled in newspaper arts and wiles and knows how to  elude the inquiring newspaper man.  His bump of modesty is well defined  and he, will not talk about himself for  publication if he knows it. At any  rate, the Anaconda Standard tells this  "Tale of a Flying- Wedg-e" in a recent  issue,,: arid it .is a tale of thrilling-interest:     '���"��� ''.-,���  A DRAMA IN REAL LIFE.       '' ��� '   '  One of the most romantic modern  dramas of real life is'recalled 'by a dispatch printed in the Standard last Sunday morning-., This dispatch said  United States Consul Smith at Victoria, B. C, is reported to have forwarded to the American government a  memorial from R. i'E. L. Brown,; an  American engineer, requesting the  , g-oyernment's intervention to secure  Brown's claim against the Transvaal  government. This claim is for damages  arising out of the Witfontein case, in  which Brown secured a judg-ment for  $1,812,000 against Oom Paul's government. ,', ;���.;,.  Where mining- men congregate the  world over, R. E. L.1 Brown is .known,  although yet he is a young man, and  it,is as "Barbarian," rather than Robert E., Lee Brown, that he has the  greatest fame. How he got the narne  of Barbarian is another story.  lit- was* in 1893: that young Brown  turned itp in South Africa with John  Hays Hammond. He had g-one from  the Coeur d'Alenes after an exciting-  residence of several years In that section. His ability as a mining- engineer  was great, and had'been quickly recognized by John Hays"Hammond, that  brilliant Californian who has played  such a prominent part in the life of  South Africa. Cecil Rhodes, in turn,  grew to know Brown's worth, not only  as a mining engineer, but as a cool-  headed, daring and game man.*  0 GOLD REEFS WERE WANTED.  . So it was that when.Oom Paul and  his lawmakers had decided to throw  open to lease certain of his rich gold  reefs in the tight little Dutch republic,  Brown was a man of some consequence  among the cosmopolitan and feverish  population. Wealthy men were behind  Brown and .had. entrusted to him the  ' duty of securing the locations they  wanted.  With that strange thick-headedness  that seems, to . be characteristic of the  Transvaal, arrangements for throwing  open the coveted reefs were conducted  in the crudest and most inadequate  manner. It must be understood that  these gold lands had long been coveted  : by the.outlanders and jealously guarded by the-Boer government as its own.  The announcement that the lands  would be thrown open to lease brought  together, as might have been expected,  an immense throng of capitalists and  adventurers, miners of means and  poor prospectors, blacklegs, thieves,  crooks, criminals and all of those  diverse elements that go to make the  population of South Africa colorful.  The lands to be leased had been long  before viewed and prospected and their  fabulous wealth were known by mining  men. Thousands were there to apply  for leases where hundreds could be accommodated. The human ghouls were  there to feast on the wealth that was  sure.to be afloat where so many men  gathered together, all gold mad.  The government had announced that  it would, on a ��� certain day, open an  office at a certain place on the plan  where applications for lease would be  received in turn, each application to be  on a blank form and accompanied by a  large percentage of the sum of the  lease for a year. A commissioner  wouid receive the applications and the  money.  NO "SOONEKS" THERE.  There was no chance for "sooners."  First come, first served, was to be the  motto. He who reached the office first  would receive the coveted lease, which  ^mmmmmmmmmmmfe!

How to reach there first? ' That was  the problem Brown, days before the  date of opening the office, had set his  brain to solve." ;;  He was a westerner by adoption, but  a type. About him in the Transvaal  he found hundreds of men he knew;  men from Montana, from Wyoming,  from Idaho. Some were there for  their country's good and some were  there solely from choice, but all were  clear grit. Theirs was the kind of  western American manhood that followed Teddy Roosevelt at Los Guasi-  mas, af El Caney and at San Juan  hill. Of the same kind is the western  volunteer-whose deeds" of daring and  indomitable courage in the Philippine  islands are causing the military men  of the world to wonder.  Four hnndred of these reckless,brave  and strong-willed men entered Brovyn's  employ. Great- interests were behind  the j'oung engineer and he paid well.  With these 400 westerners, trained to  ride, to shoot and to fight, what could  he not have dane! He intended to set  them against 5,000 men of other nationalities .who would be battling to  reach the coveted door ahead of him.  He felt confident they would win.  A FOOTBALL TRICK.  Once upon a time Brown had been  a college student, and despite the short  stature, had been a football player. He  proceeded to instruct a class of 400 apt,  but laughing pupils into the mysteries  of an old football trick.  Imagine a blistering African plain,  sandy and grassless, the heat waves  shimmering over the surface : and  scorching the faces of a huge, sweating, swearing mob of 5,000 angry men,  panting under the tropic sun that is  fast approaching the meridian. Away  in the distance, dimly blue and indis-  tict through the heated atmosphere,  rise the hills. Between you and them  there is nothing save sand and heat,  and this huge crowd of men, swarming  and fighting about a tiny, red corrugated iron shanty, within which sits a  stolid, pipe-smoking- Boer commissioner, and a clerk, waiting for the  hour, of noon to arrive.  For 12 hours that solid mass of  humanity in front of the window in the  shanty has stood there. Each hour has  seen it increased, and now, as the fateful time approaches, the mass tries to  weld itself into a still more compact  lump. Men grind and gouge and curse.  There is murder in the air. In all the  great crowd there is one idea, one  wish, one desire���to reach that window.  Gradually Brown's men who have  affected .the outer edge of the crowd,  come together. They are quiet and unconcerned in the manner and appear  to be quite at home on this desert.  Western plains have taught them a  lesson.  Brown is among them,cool and pleasant; his five feet eight inches of height  and narrow breadth making him appear puny besides his braves. He  looks at his watch���11:55.  He draws close to the crowd. A  huge, tawny, mustached, blue-eyed  man comes close behind him and towers  over  Brown.    They press into the  crowd,   gently   at   first: then  harder,  faster, passionately.  CHARGE OF THE FOUR HUNDRED.  Watch   the  400  hundred. . They are  coming together.   Two men press close  to   the  back  of  the  man   who stands  back of Brown and has  now lifted  the  little   man   clear  of the ground.    Behind   them,  rapidly  forming into a V  shaped mass the whole 400 appears.  It is theflying wedge.  But   such   a   flying , wedge!    Everjr  man has a sharp-pointed  bowie  knife  in  'his  sleeve,   prepared  to  prick, but  not   to   kill;   to persuade, not to murder.  Up to this time the crowd has not  realized what is happening. , But now  a murmur begins to go up. Men begin  to turn their heads.  "Come on, boys." It is Brown's  voice.  There is a sudden, mighty movement  forward. There is a crunching of bones  and a howling of curses. Ribs are  broken, men are struck as if by an  earthquake arid thrown up and on the  faces of their companions. As the cut  water iof a mighty battleship throws  up a wave in front and to its sides as  it cuts through the opposing sea, so did  this human cut-water throw up a wave  of men. ..>���     ,  o  But a packed mass of 5,000 men is no  easy   thing   to   pass through.     With  bowed heads and bodies pressed   close  together the flying wedge bucks the  center of the crowd,, and bucks it with  enormous power-  And as the hour of noon strikes and  the window opens Brown's form is  hurled against its'lintel and Brown's  money is thrown down before the astonished Boer.  The flying wedge has won. <,  "But Oom Paul's people disapprove ot  such methods. It is a Yankee trick.  Nevertheless the law has been complied  with and Brown feels he is victorious.  He and his flying wedge fight their  way back and leave the cursing crowd  to scramble for what is left after" the  choice locations have-been taken. They  howl and battle and almost overwhelm  the commissioner until he slams the  window and declares all the proceedings illegal arid goes away to Pretoria  to advise with the government. :������;  That is the story of the flying wedge  and what it did.  And now comes another chapter.  Feeling that it had in some manner  been outwitted, the Transvaal government sought to repudiate the lease it  had given Brown,   under protest, as'it  MINERAL ACT, 1896.

It approved the ^course, ojMrlxe  commissioner in declaring the proceedings illegal, tendered back all - the  money received and sought another  way of disposing of  the lands.  Thereupon suit was instituted by  Brown in the high court of the Transvaal and after interminable delays the  august justices in 1897 were obliged' to  declare Brown in the right and give  him judgment in the sum. of $1,812,000  against the republic for the profits that  would have been his had he been allowed his land.  The Boers have never made good the  full amount of the judgment, however,  and Brown is still fighting to bring  them to time.  This was but one incident in his  career in South Africa: He was in  many other, enterprises and has  amassed great wealth. Mines in  Mexico, British Columbia, South  America, Africa, Alaska, and he alone  knows where else are his. He has  offices in London, the cape, the City of  Mexico, Victoria and Spokane, and  travels extensively. He has schemes  on foot in British Columbia, the narration of which would read like a romance, so for the present his headquarters are Victoria, the capital city  of the province.  And now as to his name. In 1892 he  was, although a mining engineer, dab-  biling in his other profession, the one  he loves most. He was the proprietor  of a vigorous little paper called the  Barbarian, published at Wardner, Idaho. This was before fortune came to  him. In the great strikes of that year  he espoused the cause of the mine owners and bitterl}' denounced the acts of  the striking miners. For months he  carried his life in his hands. Finally  his funds gave out and he went to Spokane. There he and Harold Boyce, a  brilliant young newspaper man and  poet, established a clever weekly called  the Outburst. But it was not a success  financially, the field being too limited,  and he and Boice went off to South  Africa. During his residence in Spokane Brown was a marked character of  the place and the name Barbarian,  from the fame of his fighting, vitrolic  little newspaper, became fastened upon  him,  And perhaps, too, it was necessary to  give him the appellation in order to  distinguish him from two other Spokane characters who bore his own surname���-Dirty Shirt Brown, the faro  dealer, and Kettle Belly Brown, the  former chief of the Carson City, Nev.,  fire department.

Fox, of the firm of Fox &  Ross,  Toronto,  was  in   the  city  this I  week,   en  route  to Camp McKinney.  r-Potsal Reform,  The Postmaster General continues  his   work   of  reform   in , the    postal  service.       The    latest     improvement  which  he has undertaken is to provide  for   compensation   to   the   public   for  registered mail  matter lost in transmission  through   the   mails.      Many  people have been  at a loss to understand the real value of the registered  mail service, inasmuch as the registering of a letter did not protect  the pub-,  lie against loss -if such  occurred,  but  simply  guaranteed greater care in trie  transmission and reduce the probabilities of loss.     Although the compensation is limited by the bill to the sum  of $25.00, this sum will  probably cover  the large   proportion    of remittances  which are made by mail by the general  public, and will do much to  popularize  this  branch of the service.     Another  improvement provided for by  the bill  is the establishment of a  "Late mail"  service similar to that which has been  found of great service to the business  men in Great Britain and  by which on  the payment of a small  fee  the  letter  posted after the regular hour   of   closing the mail at the  postoffice   may  be  forwarded  in  time to  catch  the mail  train.   The advantage of such  an  arrangement   will   be    appreciated    by  those   who  have experienced  the loss  which sometimes follows the  inadvertent   missing   of   the   mail   by  a   few  minutes.     A yet  more  up-to-date  innovation is the proposed introduction of  the automobile as  a means  of   communication, between the general post-  office in Toronto and the branch offices  of which there are over twenty.     This  step is in the nature of an experiment  and  if the result  is satisfactory it will  be introduced elsewhere.  die. ..����.
