This property is owned by L.  S. Moulton Barrett of Greenwood. The  capitalisation of the company, is $1,-  000,000. Of "this amount $300,000 is  placed in the treasury and the rest of  the stock is- pooled for nine months.  The group consists of the Golden Eagle  Laskey and a/fractional claim Junction City. They are situated upon a  spur of Volcanic mountain, about half  a0 mile from the North Fork. The  properties ��� are ten miles from Grand  Forks. Frank ,    Robbins,    M.   E.  McKenzie Marin & Company's  expert, has examined the property.  In his report he states that sufficient  work has not been done to fully demonstrate the value of the property,  but enough to warrant it being considered of very good prospective value  with a certain amount of shipping ore  in sight. He first noticed two quartz  cropping-s at the surface. From one of  these he secured $30 in gold values.  He took several samples from the  dump "at the shaft. The > best of this  gave over 20 per cent, copper. A  general sample taken from the whole  dump gave $21.74, all values. Mr.  Robbins concludes by stating that the  shaft shows a vein irregular in width  to a depth of 52 feet where it is cut off.  The drift seemingly recovers this vein  arid is driven along it; the average  value is $25 to $30, all values... Two  winzes have opened a large deposit  lying below the drift and crossing it at  right angles. The property is well  worthy: of-.��� exploration -and jitvmay.-,be  called a good "little" mine. : It shows  evidence of value which compare favorably with the best in Boundary Creek  section.  Hon. T. Mayne Daly, president of  the Brandon and Golden Crown company, was in the city this week. Mr.  Daly visited the Golden Crown and left  on Friday for the Okanagan Gold  Mines company valuable properties.  Mr. Daly . would not talk politics because he declares that he is no longer  a politician, He is well satisfied with  the progress made at the Golden Crown  and is convinced that he is president  of a company owning one of the best  properties in the district. With this  conviction all people acquainted with  the Golden Crown will agree.  S. H. C. Miner and wife, Miss Miner  Gran by, Que.; E. M.   Carroll and wife,  New York; G. Stevens, Waterloo, Que:,  are a party of eastern  capitalists  who  are visiting the Boundary Creek dis  trict. They were in Grand Forks this  week and will visit the Greenwood  camp properties'and the city next week.  The party are in charge of Jay P.  Graves, the manager of their many  big mining interests.  Mr. Eastman, the superintendent of  the Gold Bug mine in Wellington  camp, was in the city this week. Mr.  Eastman has nine men at work on the  Gold Bug. He is also superintendent  of a Republic mine and divides his  time between the two properties.  Harry Howson, agent for the -Wm.  Hamilton Manufacturing company has  just completed the sale of a large plant  to the Gold Bug company.  Henry Johns, who, was in the city  week, stated that his engagement with  the Mother Lode people would terminate August 20th. He would then take  charge of the Sunset group and was  sure from what he knew of the properties that all that was"required to  bring them to the very front was  vigorous development work.  Harry Howson, representing the Wm.  Hamilton Manufacturing company,has  13 men at work on the Pasadena mine  in Greenwood camp. The Pasadena  ;is owned by a company in which members of the Wm. Hamilton Manufacturing company are the principal shareholders.    ���  R. Shearer has been working the,.  Yukon claim in Kimberlery camp for  several months. He sank a shaft 23  feet when driven out by water. The  shaft is in ore carrying good gold and  copper values. Mr. Shearer will resume work on the property in the fall.  W. C. 'Noble business, manager for  the War Eagle and Buckhorn com-  panies,arrived from Nelson on Wednesday. Both properties are being worked  under the superintendency of Peter  Joyce.: '' \   '.'���''��� ���     : i  M. E. Miller, E. A. Bielenberg and  Thos. Roadley left on Wednesday for  the Smilikameen district.' They will  be away about ten days.  THE CITY COUNCIL.  ltd  The Regular Meeting Held on Monday Evening.  City By-Laws.  At the. regular meeting of the city  council >held Monday evening Mayor  Hardy was in the chair and all the  members of tbe council were present.  A.

The council decided that they no  longer required the services of the city  engineer and the clerk was requested  to so inform him.  By-laws for widening Silver street  and fixing rates for waterworks were  advanced a stage.  The council decided to adjourn .until  Wednesday evening but no meeting  was held that evening in consequence  of no quorum being available.

Nelson Delegates to the Rossland Meeting Given  Free Rein.  At the largest attended meeting the  Nelson board of trade ever held, called  to reconsider a resolution passed by a  small majority at an unrepresentative  meeting last week to restrain delegates  to the joint meeting at Rossland next  month from discussing or voting on  any resolution referring to the eight-  hour law, it was agreed with only one  dissenting vote to allow the delegates  to discuss or deal with the eight-hour  question as they see fit. This is the endorsement of the action of President J.  Roderick Robertson of the board, who  is manager of the Ymir mine, and who  has been active in his opposition to the  methods by which the law was passed.

The position was offered   to Mr. Johns  by  W.  L,.   Hog-y,   was  accepted and a  three years' ��� contract sig-ned.     Mr.  J.  H.   Macfarlane   has   been- appointed  business manag-er  with   Headquarters  at  Greenwood.     Comment' upon    the  excellent  judg-ment  displayed  by Mr.  W.  L,.   Hogg-  is   needless.    Mr. Johns  has   undoubtedly    every   qualification'  necessary to fill the responsible position.    The success   attending-   the   development   of the Mother Lode with  which   he   has   been   connected-  in  a  similar capacity is in a large measure;  due to him and: it  is  safe  to  forecast  jthat'under Mrl'Johns' superintendence  the Sunset, Crown Silver and CO. D.,  will   be   placed   on   a   shipping basis  expeditously and efficiently.!  ,'. Much development during- the past  three years  has been, accomplished;at-  the Sunset.    Some  1350  feet of  work  has been'completed under the supervision   of   Mr.   Macfarlane - proving.- the-  'extent and pertnancy of the ore bodies.  :He   has   been   complimented   by   the  owners  for  the  judicious  manner   in  which  the work has  been performed.,  It. is  understood  that   he  notified the  directorate when the big- company was  incorporated  that  he did not consider  himself sufficiently experienced   to act  in   the capacity of mine manag-er with  the new and larg-er responsibilities and  would not  accept  the  position.      Mr.  Macfurlane   was   seen   by    a   Times  representative and verified these sentiments.    He stated that he  considered  the change an excellent one.  "The property is there," he added,  "and all that is required to place it in  the foremost list is the master hand of  an experienced man like Mr. Johns. I  am financially interested in the enterprise and know it will be a hug-e success when a man of Mr.. Johns' ability  and experience directs operations. I  cannot too strongly endorse Mr. Hog-g-'s  wise course. I may have some business ability but 30 years more among-  the mines might fit a young- man for  such a responsible position���certainly  not much less."  Mr. Macfarlane is to be commended i  for his position. Good properties have-  been ruined and gfood companies!  wrecked by men who refused to acknowledge that they did not know?  everything- about the underground:  workings of a mine. Mr. Johns' experience - as superintendent in other  properties gives the shareholders in the  Montreal Boundary Creek company-  every assurance that every dollar of  their money will be judicially expended.  The Sunset is a hive of industry.  Foundations, roads, pipe lines and  buildings for the big- plant was commenced on Monday. A boarding- house  and bunk house to accommodate the  required force will be under construction immediately. The foundations  for a residence for Mr. Johns are being, excavated and the company will  build a neat cottage thereon.  of ag-e. If you caii do anything- toward discovering his whereabouts, you  will confer a great favor on an anxious  wife. Very respectfully,  ,     - WM. P. HUGHES.  Lots of Loans.  British Columbia was not the only  state that was out for a little spare  cash in the financial wilderness of London. She was, in fact, only one of  quite a distinguished party of loan-  hunters, and the way in which British  Columbia came out of the hunt is something of which our people .may feel  very proud, when the luck of the other  cash-stalkers is considered. The eminently satisfactory terms upon which  our loan was negotiated is all the more  creditable when it is known that Russia and Japan had loans applied for  just ahead of this province, and were  only partially successful with them.  Then the cities of New York and  Montreal were also in the field for  loans, the former for $10,025,000 of city  3l/z percent, g-old bonds, of which $350,-  000 is payable in 1918 and the remainder in 1929. The best bid was S109.45  or $10,972,362.50 for the entire issue.  The amount of bonds.was subscribed  for six times over,and there were many  bids almost as good as the one accepted. Quite a number of bids were  made for portions of the loan at hig-her  rates than those accepted for the entire loan.  ' Montreal is placing- a loan of three  millions, and there is no doubt the Canadian metropolis^ will be equally successful as the American in negotiating  that loan; Neverdid Canada's credit  stand higher in the money markets of  the world; almost any amount conld  'now be secured in London for the development of Canadian resources, or  :by various corporations of the country.  The fact of so many larg-e loans being- in the market from among-st the  most progressive nations and cities  (and provinces) in the world; is a sig-n  that the forward policy is the favorite  one with them, and that still greater  efforts are to be made to keep them in  the front,ranks, of progress.���Victoria  Times.

The   following-, cummunication   addressed to the Times and received from  Editor Hughes of the Northport News  explains   itself :    A lady ' here  by   the  name of Mrs.   S.   Wortman   has lost  track  of her   husband,   and  as most  newspaper men are always anxious to  help those  in   distress,    I    thought   1  would write you about the matter.    He  left here some three  months  ago and  had a wood contract at Nelson,   Wash.  He could  not secure   wood   choppers  enough  to  complete his contract so he  threw it up.    About  a month   ag-o he  wrote his wife that he was   working- at  Nelson and that as soon as his pay was  due he would send her a check  for his  month's wages from   Grand   Forks  or  Greenwood, since which time  she  has  not heard a word from him.    As  he  is  a man of good habits   and   their relations toward  each   other  have   always  been   of  the  most  pleasant  and companionable   character,   she   is    afraid  that   he   has   been   foully dealt with.

Over thirty cases were on the list for  the county court held at Midway last  Saturday. His Honor, Judge Spinks,  presided. Several cases were settled out  of court. Among- the cases of local in ter-  est that came up for adjudication was  that of Eddy vs Nelson. W. ,E.; F.  Eddy leased from J. W. Nelson the  premises occupied by the Canadian  Bank of Commerce. ,The: leas'e was for  one year, possession to be secured on  April 1st last.

''  Harrington vs. the Snowflake Lime  company was a case'in which, the  plantiff sued for 25 day's wages. The  defendant company held that Harrington was engaged for a month and  having quit before time had expired  was not entitled to anything. Jay P.  ; Meyers-Gray for the plaintiff, H. C.  Shaw for the defendant.      ;  The Camp McKinney mines vs. Ala-  quist, was a case in which the plaintiff  sued for damages for wrongful detention of lnmber. " The defendant  raised the objection that action should  1 be one of replevin. The objection:was  sustained and the case dismissed. J.  P. McLeod for plaintiff, and Whiteside  for defendant.  The long pending case of A. H.  Black vs. C. A. E. Shaw, was againad-  journed., In this case Black sued for  $131 wages. At a former sitting of the  court, the matter was referred to" Geo.  A. Naden to take accounts.: Mr. Naden  filed his report reducing the amount  to $11 and finding that Black owed for  $57 or an. equivalent in B. C. M. ,&' M.'  stock. No action was taken on this report and the "case was again adjourned.  THE CARIBOO COMPANY.  HOTEL COLUMBIA BURNED.  Again    Heavy  Messrs. Morgan  &   Escalet  ���'; : ���'���'���'���" "':   .Losers.  An   insatiable hodoo  appears to be  following   the business operations of  Messrs. D. W. Morgan and E. Escalet  in the Boundary creek .district;     It is  ' only a few.weeks since the Clarendon  was burned to the ground and  Messrs.  Morgan    .and.': Escalet   lost     several  thousand dollars.     A. new ; start was  made at the Hotel Columbia in  Colum-  > ;bia. . The hotel was refurnished and a  , large stock had just been' secured  and  the hotel opened for: business when it  caught fire and was soon a total   loss.  The fire started at 1.30 Monday  morning. All the guests were in bed at  the time but fortunately they escaped.  Three hundred dollars worth of furniture was saved. Two men jumped from  the second story window, one of them  Frank Guise formerly of the hotel  being badly burned about the head and  one arm.  The Columbia hotel was built by the  townsite company last winter. It, was  a large three story structure. Owing  to the bitter feeling between Columbia  and Grand Forks there are ugly rumors circulated regarding the origin of  the fire.  BILL TO REFORM THE SENATE.  The premier Introduces a Resolution to Amend  the B. N. A. Act.  Sir Wilfred Laurier has given-notice  that on Wednesday he will propose the  following resolution: "That an humble  address be presented to Her Majesty,  the Queen, setting forth that the provisions of the British North America  act of 1867, respecting the powers of  the senate of Canada in the making of  laws, are unsatisfactory and should be  brought more into harmony with the  principle of popular government, and  praying that Her Majesty may be  pleased to recommend to the Imperial  parliament a measure for the amendment of said act in such terms as will  effectually make the provisions as follows: 'If the House of Commons passes  any bill which the senate rejects or  fails to pass, or amends in any way  not accepted by the House of Commons,  then if the House of Commons at the  next following session, again passes  such bill and the senate again rejects  or fails to pass, or amends same in any  way not accepted by the Commons, the  governor-general may, by proclamation, convene one or more joint sittings  of the members of the two houses for  the consideration of such bill or amendments, and the question whether such  bill or amendments shall pass shall be  decided by a majority of the members  of the two houses present and voting,  and the votes of any such joint sitting  shall, as respects such bill or amendments, have the same force and effect  as a vote of the senate under the existing constitution,' "  Hold Its First Annual Meeting In Toronto���The  Mine Profits. ,  ���'  One has now to look to Toronto instead of Spokane for news from headquarters relative to the Cariboo mine.  The Canadian capitalists who purchased this property have their headquarters in Toronto, and hold their  meetings there. The Toronto World  says: ,  At the first general meeting o�� the  shareholders of the Cariboo Consolidated Gold Mining company of Camp  McKinney, B. C, held, at the company's offices in the Board of Trade  building, Toronto, it was decided that  the annual meeting of that corporation  should take place on the first Tuesday  in February, 1900. In the absence of  President Robert Jaffray, and Vice-  President G. B. Smith occupied the  chair. A number'of the shareholders  were there, and apparently everyone  went away well pleased with the out  look, as gathered from the official statements submitted; these statements all  coming, out in reply to questions put by  the enquiring shareholders.  In'the first place, it was shown that  the mill run for June resulted in a  clean-up of 1051 ounces of bullion, exclusive of concentrates. This result is  the largest ever obtained in one month  in the history of the company, the largest previously having been 970.  The total output of the Cariboo up to  May 31 was, according to ' the treasurer's statement, $589,289.40, and since  that date the output has been . swelled  by the shipment of between $20,000 and  $25,000, the result of the clean-up for  June. These figures show that the  mine has yielded up to date between  $610,000 and $615,000.  Up to May 31 the Cariboo had paid  26 dividends, totalling $323,154.14.  Since that date a dividend of $12,250  was paid for the month of June, and.  to-day a similar dividend for July will  be declared. This will bring the total  sum paid in dividends from the Cariboo mine up to $348,000 in round figures,  and it will be seen that, as the Cariboo  produces about $20,000 per month, and  pays only about. $12,000 in dividends,  it must be laying by the tidy sum of  $8000 a month for any rainy day that  should come around.  .���As to the mine itself, the main shaft  is',.now down to the 350-foot level,  where the ore body is looking first-  class. In fact, taking all things into  consideration, the company feel that  their mine was never in all its history  looking as well as it does to-day.  As to equipment, the new 10-drill air  compressor has just been installed at  the mine, and is now in operation. As  up to the end of June only three drills  were working, it will be seen that the  capacitj' of the plant has now been  more than trebled. When the question  was asked as *o when the number of  stamps would be increased to cope  with the increased supply of ore, the  reply was made that that was a matte^  which the directors would consider.       !  By the way, Mr. George B. McAuley,  managing director of the Cariboo  Consolidated, sailed last Saturday  from Scotland for this country. President Jaffray and Vice-President Pellatt  have gone out to Camp McKinney, as  we announced some days ago.  AMNERS  and  : :  PROSPECTORS,  should Wear - :.;: ',.-���-  Ames Holden Co/s  'f.

Greenwood business men would be  foolish to adopt the position that because nature has been lavish in her  gifts-to the city, no special effort is  required on their part to promote its  growth and ensure its future. Experience teaches us that live business  men can beat nature to a standstill in  making- progressive cities. United  effort on the part of business men is  best secured through an organization  like a board of trade.  There is no good reason why the  Greenwood board which will soon be  incorporated should not be ��� of the  greatest assistance in promoting the  interests of the city. All that is wanted is a lively interest. The board  must of necessity be non-politi-.-al. Its  business must be such as will be for  the general good, consequently all  business men irrespective of their  political affliations or predilections can  meet on a common ground to harmoniously discuss matters in the interests  of the city.  The association starts out well by  the appointment of an efficient  secretary. Mr. Gosnell is now our  esteemed contemporary and we are  probably supposed to say nothing- in  his favor. "We have never favored  however a dog- eat dog policy in newspaper work and consequently are free  to state that his training- and experience has been such that no beeter  selection for the position could be  made.  While much depends upon the work  of the secretary, it is quite proper to  state that the members must take a  greater interest in public affairs than  they have heretofore before the Board  of Trade will he productive of much  good.  The secret of the general lack of  interest in public matters lies in the  fact that Greenwood has been too  richly favored in the past. An era of  hard times which is not likely to come  would arouse a keen interest. Take  the case of Grand Forks for instance.  The C. P. R. started in to annihilate  the city and the people were desperate.  Desperation provoked action. They  fought together and planned and  schemed together. The fight they  made has wiped out many of  those objectionable features that  marred the standing of the city and  to-day Grand Forks occupies a better  position on the outside than it ever  did.  We refer to this matter only to show  that the public appreciate good  fighters. Let the business men fight  for favorable freight rates, for tributary trade, for a fair share of public  monies; indeed for everything that is  coming to them and the Board of Trade  will not be organized in vain.  BOUNDARY CREEK EXCLUDED.  The Cascade Record very properly  calls attention to the vagaries of the  provincial government in dealing with  Boundary Creek district. The latest  instance showing ignorance or studied  neglect is defining the limits of the  counties in which the respective sheriffs have jurisdiction. Those counties  in which the people here are particularly interested are defined as follows:  The County of Kootenay.  Sheriff, Samuel Parker Tuck; post-  office address, Nelson.  Limits of Jurisdiction:���The Slocan  Riding of West Kootenay, the Nelson  Riding of West Kootenay, that portion  of the Rossland Riding of West Kootenay which is within the County of  Kootenai', and the South Riding of  East Kootenay, as defined by the "Redistribution Act, 1898."  The County of Yale:  Sheriff, Arthur Gore Pemberton;  postoffice address, Kamloops.  Limits of County:���The Kamloops,  Nicola Lake, Okanagan and Rock  Creek Polling Divisions of Yale Electoral District.  It will be noticed that Boundary  Creek district from Rock Creek to  Christina Lake is left out altogether.  The omission is less excusable since  the attention of the attorney-general  was called to the matter early last  winter. He then decided that Boundary Creek was to remain under the  jurisdiction of Sheriff Pemberten and  that the deputies appointed by him had  power to act. The attorney-general  has, in the excitement of the day, forgotten his decision, and Boundary  Creek is again left out. The matter is  not of much importance since there is  but little for a sheriff to do in this dis  trict, but it simpl}' goes to show that  Boundary Greek, through the last  gerrymander, is not considered in one  county or the other. The sure way to  prevent errors of this kind is to make  a new constituency in Southern Yale,  placing it on a similar footing to other  constituencies of the province. The  importance of the district lying between Pentiction and Christina Lake  demanded representation a year ago  and as its growth has been rapid since  then, the necessity for separate representation is greater than ever. ,  FORTUNATE  CONTRACTORS.  The city's interests are suffering because there are not sufficient good men  in the council to make a fight against  the insidious influence of importunate  contractors. Through two of the small  contracts awarded by the council this  year contractors have fleeced the city  to the tune of nearly $1,000. The council were aware of the fact that the city  was being fleeced, but the majority of  the council were either lacking in the  necessary courage or inclination to  make a stand in the'interests of the  city. The first instance that came  under our notice was referred to in a  previous issue of the paper. It will be  remembered that a contract was  awarded for excavating Government  street in the vicinity of Greenwood  street. , If our memory does not play  us false, the contract was 65 cents per  cubic yard. The contractor figured 1,-  500 yards; Aid. Galloway by a simple  calculation showed that there were less  than 1,000 yards removed. In the face  of this the contractors were paid the  full amount on their own figures.  The second instance is more glaring.  A contract was awarded for removing  the earth taken from the Greenwood  street flume. The city engineer and  the contractor affirmed that 1,350 cubic  yards were removed. Aid. Galloway  again made an effort to protect the  city's interests and declared that 800  cubic yards would be nearer the mark.  Mr. C. A. E. Shaw was called in to  measure up. He measured 576 yards,  but was willing to allow 271 yards for  extras. In the face of this report the  majority of the council decided to pay  on the basis of the contractors' figures.  Aid. Galloway immediately resigned  from the finance committee as a protest against the loose business methods  of the majority of,the council.  If the two instances quoted above are  a foretaste of what may be expected  when larger amounts are available, it  is reasonable to assume that the city's  interests would be better served by  squauderiug money in paying laborers  than by over-paying contractors.  MUNICIPAL LAW.,  Section 20 of the Municipal Clauses  Act reads in part as follows : * * Or  who after his election becomes so  disqualified, he shall incur a penalty  of S50 for each time he shall so act, sit,  or vote.    *    *  Section 21 ��� states : If the mayor  reeve, or any of the aldermen, council-,  lors or any person on his or their behalf or any person in partnership with  him or them shall enter into or obtain  any interest directly or indirectly, in  any contract entered into by or with  the corporation such mayor reeve,  alderman or councillor, having any  interest in any contract, or having become disqualified as aforesaid, 'shall  immediately be disqualified from  continuing to be mayor reeve, alderman or councillor, as the case may be.  Section 11: If any . mayor reeve,  alderman or councillor who is disqualified for the reason mentioned in the  proceeding section of this act shall  vote at any meeting of the municipal  council such mayor reeve, aldermen  or councillor shall forfeit to the  municipality a sum of S2.500; and the  said sum may be recovered by action,  to be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction, in the name of the  corporation or of any ratepayer and  the municpality shall pay the costs of  suit of any ratepayer recovering such  penalty.  SET A GOOD EXAMPLE.  This paragraph, which appeared in  the Montreal Witness, was apparently  written for Montreal only, but it may  be read with profit by residents of other  cities.  Dirt is contagious. If anybody doubts  it let him observe the streets. Littered with all sorts of rubbish, they  offer a positive invitation to everybody to toss or sweep his surplus matter into them. If the streets were kept  in a proper state of cleanliness no decent person at least would think of  throwing anything upon the roadway  or in the gutters. There is also a  moral effect. Cleanly surroundings beget clean habits. Children going to  and from school are  unconsciously in  fluenced by what they see, and dirty  streets being a standing example of  untidiness jii those to whom they naturally look for leading, they grow indifferent and careless. Thus the toleration of dirt on the streets becomes not  only a menace to health, but an influence for evil. Considerations of this  sort may have no place in the average  aldermanic mind, which seems to take  its inspirations from mediaeval times,  when the public thoroughfares were  the common sewers.

B. PATON.  One of   Greenwood's Pioneer  Citizens  Died  Suddenly Sunday.    ,  The many friends-of Mr. W. B. Paton  were greatly shocked on Sunday morning to learn  that he   died   suddenly  from heart disease.     Mr.   Paton was  around   on   Saturday   as   active   and  cheerful as ever.   He was  getting  up  on Sunday  morning when  he reeled  over and in  a few seconds was dead.  The   deceased was   among   the   first  citizens of Greenwood.    He came here  in 1896 and has siuce been  closely connected   with  the city's growth.    The  deceased at the time of his  death  was  the senior member of the real estate,  mining and  insurance  firm  of "W. B.  Paton &   Co.,      Alway    affable   and  courteous he hada large host of friends  in the city  who deeply regret his sudden demise  and sympathise with the  young widow in her sad affliction. The  deceased was a native of Scotland  and  was just 40 years of age.    He  came  to  the province  about eight    years  ago  residing ��� for some  time  at    Spallum-  acheen  where  a brother resides   and  where his father died a short time ago.'  Mr.  Paton was a 'member of the city  . council during 1896.   He was a capable  and experienced accountant  and was  consequently of much service to the city  in connection  with  its early financial  "affairs. -���.-������-.���  The funeral which took place on  Tuesday afternoon was very largely  attended. .The members of.;the I. O.  O. F.' of which he was a prominent  member conducted their impressive  services at the grave while the services  at the family residences were conducted by Rev. Mr. Mclutyre. The pallr  bearers were 'Messrs. Geo. R. Naden,  Mayor Hardy, R. F. Coates, Thos.  McDonnell, Jas. Kerr and Geo. Arthur  Rendell.  Mr. Paton leaves a wife and three  small children, ��� the youngest being  only a year old.  that camp. He has gone to Greenwood  but will return to Republic to make his  home here.

Pelham's Properties.  ���Major L/eckie, manager of the Republic mine, went down to King's  camp last Sunday, accompanied by B.  C. Thursby Pelham, and returned  Tuesday. Major L/eckie examined the  Banner, Bonanza and Nespelim and  took a general look at the camp. On  his return he said he was well pleased.  Tom Clark, superintendent of the  Clark mines, John Bresnahan late  superintendent of the Republic mine  and James Ritchie returned Tuesday  from a visit to King's camp and Davis  camp. They spent Sunday in King's  camp where they examined the Banner, Bonanza, Nespelim and other  properties, going from there to Davis  camp where they inspected the tunnel being run on the Park and  Central, and the shaft being put  down on the Harvest. They were  all well pleased with both camps.  The Harvest shaft is making good  progress and though it is in the foot  wall the vein having dipped away  from it. When down fifty feet a crosscut will be run to discover the width  of the vein.  Mr. Pelham; who went with Major  L/eckie to King's camp, is largely  interested in the Bonanza property of  Certificates of Work.  July 13.  Lucky Tom, D. D. Morris.  ���    July 14.

A  Successful  Organization   Meeting  Held   on  Friday Evening.  'A well attended meeting of business  men was held last Friday evening for  the purpose of taking further steps to  org-anize the Greenwood Board of  Trade. Aid. Galloway was voted to  the chair and R. E. Gosuell appointed  secretary. The appointment of Mr.  Gosnell was made permanent. A communication was, received from R. B.  Kerr who had charge of the legal work  of the organization. He forwarded  the necessary pajjei's and advised the  members as to what course ought to he  pursued. The secretary was instructed  to forward the necessary papers to Ottawa. The question of securing- a  mineral exhibit for the Paris exposition was then discussed. Messrs.  Galloway, McDonnell, Smith and Gosuell were appointed a committee. The  area to be included in the work was discussed. With thejeonsent of Mr.Robert-  son who was present, it was finally decided that specimens would be collected  to Camp McKitinej' in the west.  TO YIELD $3,000,0000.

List    of  Principal    Dividend-Paying    Quartz  Mines of British Columbia.  According   to   the    report    of    the  Engineering and Mining Journal,   the  lode   mines of  British   Columbia have  paid diyidends to date to the extent  of  . 32,126,465.     This-  does   not   represent  the actual amount of  dividends,  but is  all   the  returns   they    have   received.  Take  the Poorman mine, for instance.  For eight or ten years the Davenports,  of   Spokane,   would   g-et   out   ore    in  winter, aiid reduce itiii summer. Each  year they would make a profit of about  320,000.     The  Poorman   is not on the  Engineering   and    Mining    Journal's  list.     Following    are     the     dividend  payers    mentioned   by   the   paper   in  question :    Cariboo   McKinney,   which  paid   its   last   dividend   in   February,  1899, of l'/i cents   per  share,   3248,969;  the Fern, which paid its  last  dividend  in January, 1898, of 5 cents   per  share,  510,000; the Hall mines which   paid its  last dividend of 25 cents   per  share   in  May,   1898 ;  the  Idaho,   which paid its  last dividend in January,   1899,   of  5^  cents   per   share ;   the   L,e   Roi,   which  paid  its   last  dividend   of 10 cents per  share in April, 1898;  of S25.000.     This  does not include the S150,000 which the  holders of shares received afterthe property was sold to the  British  America  corporation for the ore and  matte that  was at the smelter, nor did it include the  smelter at Northport, which  cost 3200,-  000, and was built out  of the profits of  the Le Roi mine.  This would bring the  total dividends of the Le Roi up to 31,-  115,000.    The Rambler  Cariboo, which  paid   its   last  dividend of   1  cent pur  share,   on   April,   1899, of 350,000; the  Payne   Consolidated,   which   paid   its  last  dividend  of   1   cent per share  on  March,   1899,   of   31,025,000;    the   War  Eagle, which paid its last dividend in  May, 1899, of \)A cents  per   share; the  Queen Bess, which has 312,500.  This list is incomplete, as there are  several Slocan properties whicli are  known to yield profits to their owners.  They are, however, close corporations,  and their dividends-are never published. !  Rossland's Mineral Output This Year Will Be  About That.  Angus MacNish and Smith Curtisiof  Rossland, ��� B.  C,   are  at the Windsor,  says a Montreal  exchange.    They report the mining activity in the Boundary  and  two Kootenay districts to be  greater than ever.    Rossland is steadily growing,   and  the  mineral output  increasing.    The latter will exceed $3,-  000,000 for the  present year. ��� Several  shippers will be added to   the  list   this  year.    Heretofore  the   ore   shipments  have all come from a single area of 80  aeres. but large ore bodies   have  been  opened up on all sides of this  favored  area within the past year or so,  and  Rossland's prospects are brighter than  ever.    Phenomenal  activity  is1 shown  in the Boundary district, which" begins  about 25 miles west of, Rossland,  and  through   which   the  C.  P.  R. branch  known as the Columbia & Western railway will be in operation in a month or  so.    Here the little hamlets are growing   into   towns   almost   in   a  night.  Greenwood,   and   the   twin   cities   of  Grand Forks and Columbia are making  the   greatest   progress.     Building   is  very   active,   and  real   estate   values  have   gone   up with  a bound.    Prospectors   in   great numbers   cover  the  hills   for   100   miles    west,    and   rich  finds   are    reported   from   the    West  Fork  of Kettle river, Keremeos creek,  while the copper richness of Copper  Mountain on  the Similkameen    river  are unequalled in " British  Columbia.  In   the Grand  Forks  and  Greenwood  districts development of mines is proceeding on hundreds of properties, and  in  many cases on  a large scale, and  now  that it will  be  possible soon  to  ship ore,   many   machinery   plants are  being installed.      The  erection  of a  large smelter at Grand Forks   to  treat  the ores of Knob Hill and Old Ironsides  custom ores   is  booming Grand Forks  City, which by the way, is one of the  most beautiful places in the Province.  It is situated in the wide fertile valley  of Kettle river,   where  all    kinds   of  fruit and cereals can be produced. The  snow never exceeds 12 to 15 inches and  dissappears   early   in    March.       The  climate is mild   and   most   salubrious.  Mining  is  now  on   a more legitimate  basis than ever before.    With very few  exceptions,  none  hut  the    very   best  properties are being incorporated,  and  the   purchaser   of   shares   has   a fair  chance to realize a  profit on   his  venture.    Of course mining   is  somewhat  more risky than many other businesses,  but on the other hand the profits when  success attends the venture are  many  times greater, and this will   alwaj-s be  alluring to progressive men. Canadians  are rapidlyi learning the mining business, and a rapid growth in   ore output  will be the  result.     British   Columbia  will easily take the lead, as her mineral  wealth is   beyond   belief,   and   but  re-1  quires   capital    to   develop   it.    This,  Eastern Canada must   largely   furnish  for years to come, as English investors  want    only  fully   developed  shipping  mines.     These  they  take up eagerly,  as witness the Le Roi mine sold a year  ago for $3,500,000 to the B. A.   C,   and  now quoted on the English   market   at  nearly $8,000,000.

GAUNCE  ADDRESSES   BAPTIST CONVENTION.  ��!mmmmmmmmmmmf��  Baptizes Them In Floods of Elonuences.  Greenwood and Boundary CreeK His Theme.  A Good Field for Missionary Work.  With Greenwood and Boundary creek  for a theme, W. G; Gauhce of this city  electrified the Baptist convention at  Vancouver' recently. In glowing  language he pictured the wonderful  possibilities of the district and strongly urged the Baptists to get in on the  ground floor. Mr.. Gaunce said in  part:  Mr. President and Christian friends:  A happy fortune has enabled , me to be  present this evening and an equally  happy one affords.me; the opportunity  to tell you something of the " wonderful Boundary country," as the superintendent of missions has fitly describe  ed the region whence I come. When  I tell you that I have travelled many  hundred miles to get here and help to  convey to-your minds the breadth of  this great province, and incidentally to  remind you of the magnificent conquest  that lies before you if.youare to plant  you cause clear across it. ,    .,  CONTRAST WITH-THECOAST. ,  Buried for ntanv months in the  mountains of my adopted wilderness, I  feel a great reluctance.to stand before  a city audience; a reluctance that would  be unyielding, were I not aware that  living on these lower levels and breathing this soft subduing air you grow  indulgent and will thus overlook my  imperfections.  Between Greenwood,thejgeographicajl,  topographical,: financial, and commercial capital of the Boundary creek region and the sea-coast metropolis, 'I  find many contrasts. There one, sees  mountain fastness, here maritime delight; there the miner's cabin of hewn  logs, here the millionaire's "mansion or  block of stone or brick; there the; four  and six horse team carrying the "heav-  v iest loads, here the Oreritial steamers  come and go; there the swiftest means  to travel is the cayuse and saddle, here  ��� trie luxurious railway car. ... ���  :"' But I ani reminded of-another and  greater -contrast. . For. some months  your people have-been discussing and  ��� your-press has been agitating a > quest-  lori-of local interest, "Deadmari's island," while i come from what all who  see it admit is'"Live Man's land," a  region where only live men, and live  causes, and live churches, and live  preachers, can maintain themselves  and flourish.' .  The "Live Man's Land " of which  Greenwood is the admitted centre, is a  region of about 15 to 20 square miles,  where within the next few years is to  be witnessed the grandest character of  development. A recent map published  by the Canadian Pacific railway entitled, " Mines and Mineral Claims in  the vicinity of Greenwood," shows the  following wonderful copper ore camps  within this confined area I have referred to, viz : Longr'Lake camp, Dead-"  wood camp, Greenwood camp, Wellington camp, Smith's camp, Providence  camp, Skylark camp. It also shows  Central camp, but I omit this in my  presentation because I believe it naturally a feeder for another town across  the divide which separates, the Boundary country and the Kettle river  valley from the Boundary creek proper.  These all lie within nine miles of this  bustling little town. Within this circle  whose radius I repeat is about nine  miles from its Greenwood centre, are  3,000 people to-day, 2,000 of them in  Greenwood, and the other 1,000 scattered throughout these various camps in  all of which are from one to several  mining claims already demonstrated to  bear evidence of becoming mines of  . great value, and I think I hazard nothing when I predict that five years from  to-day will find 25,000 people within  nine miles of the. Baptist church of  Greenwood.  STRATEGIC POSITION.  There is little that I can tell you  afeout Greenwood that can prove very  interesting to a religious body I fear.  It lies in the centre of the Boundary  Creek valley and nature,'by directing  most of the mountain streams into the  valley at or near this point indicated  to man the natural point towards  which to converge the roadways which  to-day reach the encompassing hills  from that point. I am aware that different men regard the same thing differently according to taste, education,  environment, life purpose, etc. For  example several men are standing at  the falls of Niagara. One an artist,  sees there the subject for a picture  and finds there the inspiration which  enables him to transfer the same to  canvas. Another, a scientist, standing  there  thinks little of its, beauty as his  El Crepusculo,  Por Larranaga,  Benjamin Franklin,  Manuel Gurcia, Alonza  El Ecuador  Bock and Africana  La Flor De R Fulton  :: ..Tiirlusli and Egyptian..

Another  wrapt with the wondrous scene reflects  upon the source, of/',,the mighty flood  which, so tumultously pours, itself at  his feet, and in recalling that it gathered slowly, silently in form of snow-  flaks and rain drop far away, finds illustration for' the slow gathering of  mighty influence for g-ood,-.finds encouragement for the pressing, of-great  enterprises and causes,' a'.-little at a  time. A capitalist standing there sees  rio beauty perhaps, feels: no. power, as  his mind grasps the plan for conversion of this wasted energy * into an  agency 'for ' human welfare,-/ and his  own. aggrandizement. And: so different people looking at these, mountains  above '--Greenwood5 might entertain  different views and feel different emotions, but to all who find themselves in  a mining country the question doubtless arises what do these hills contain?  What is ..the phase of the question you  think that does not-interest this convention. Pause there a moment and  ponder. Mountains as such and minerals as such may not interest a convention but remember that mountains of  mineral imply men, and men are the  things with which men, and Christian  conventions arid .religious denominations ought to deal, and so the mountains do contain interest for you, my  friends, an interest which must grow  with the years as the population of  these hills will grow. These beginnings of mines mean men, their development means many times more men,  and men and their physical, mental  and moral betterment flight to be the  grand concern of a Baptist convention.  GROWTH OF  POPULATION.  Scattered all through these hills, and  in these valleys you will find the tent  of prospector, the cabins of twos and  threes, the boarding houses and hotels  of large corporations, and with railway  and smelter facilities just at hand, the  numbers of men in village and town,  in shaft and tunnel, hillside and  mountain top is to be many times  multiplied.  Thus it is that the stream of human  life constantly swells in yonder interior. And it will continue to swell  Room there for men who seek the  health of higher altitudes, who seek  scope for their energy, who desire opportunity for the investment of their  money or their abilities. Room for the  capitalist and for the artizan and laborer. Room for the capitalists to invest not merely in town lots and mining stocks, but in the development of  mining prospects into mines thus happily wedding in a productive way the  capital and the physical energy of  man to the lasting advantage  of both.  It is this prospect of a fast growing  population which prompts me to s tand  here this evening and say to you that  if you seek fields for your energies, opportunity for your sympathy and love,  rich returns for your investment ot  heart and mind don't overlook the  great region of the hills. Here is  your grand opportunity, but for its  accomplishment you need good men.  Miners are a distant class of men and  to reach these men you need a  DISTANT TYPE  of man,    Mere goodness is not enough  Only the man who wears the measure  of a man in his heart, who holds a  sympathy , for men, who without excusing or defending them in their  follies and sins still loves and sympathizes with them in air their waywardness can hope to be useful in bringing  about the transformation of their great  strong natures.   ..'...'  Some years ago in Boston I was  looking at that great painting of  Munkacsy's, Christ before Pilate. As  I stood there studying the face' of the  great man-lover, a gentleman with a  little girl of seven or eight years took  a stand beside me. The child looked  at the picture intently for a few minutes and then looking up at her parent  said, ''There's a lot of humaneness on  His face, papa, isn't there." The child  in her simple way had spelled out the  great truth of the centuries even as  the artist feeling it in his soul, had  wrought it on the canvas.  It is this "humaneness" which wins  everywhere, that will win up. in the  mountains. Your: .board sent there a  man of that character, a man with a  large, warm heart, a man whose sympathy made for him an open door and  for his canse a host'of friends. With  such a man continued there, or replaced by such another, I assure you,  your board need not beat all apprehensive about the expense such a  charge will entail upon its treasury,  because in one short year I believe the  Greenwood church could be made self-  supporting.  THE PRESENT MISSIONARY.  Rev. Ralph W. Trotter fills to riiy  mind the measure of an ideal worker  among this class of men. Not seeing  him present I trust it will be no embarrassment to him to illustrate my  idea of his work, by telling, with your  permission, Mr. Chairman, the story  of the old colored preacher, and by saying that Bro. Trotter, if his modesty  would accord might tell the story  with great propriety. The negro  preacher was trying to illustrate the  great beneficience and munificence- of  God, how that He made all things,  great and small. Realizing that illustration was the effective way of teaching great truths'he said: " He ;made  the great suit, shinining by day, and  He made the little fire-fly flickering at  night; He made the great mountains  lifting their brows for the kiss of the  morning, and He made the smallest  pebble that the child plays with on  the seashore; He made the great  ocean surging by day, sobbing by  night, and He made the glittering dew  drop on the fern leaf; and then as if  to climax and culminate all, he added,  He made me and He made a daisy."  We should be sorry to lose Rev.' Mr.  Trotter and trust that he may long  remain, and I speak no idle compliment when I add- should he leave us,  send us one' as near his measure as  possible.  Greenwood* may be made the centre  of one of your most influential and far  reaching causes. For it missions  will naturally grow in many directions,  all within a few miles of town.  In conclusion, Mr. President, let me  urge your appreciation of this field  and your high estimate of the charac  ter of missionary needed to capture,  and cultivate it. I am no ardent de-  nominationalist, no narrow sectarian-  no bitter bigot, but I saw your opportunity here. Occupy the fields  with no weakling but a strong man,  with no narrow-gauge churchman, but  with a broad man, with no mere  student of theology, but with a master  mind with men ; for up in these bleak  but beautiful hills you will find men,  not aloiie with broad chests and brawny  arms, but with great warm hearts and  clear heads, among whom lies your opportunity to do magnificent work for  cause and country.
