Vol. II,  GREENWOOD CITY, RG, SATURDAY, JULY 17, 1897,  45 No. 19.  I'v'  HEINZE  SHOULD   BUILD.  and the Mclntyres and the Smiths were millionaires.  As the Times has already pointed out Mr. Heinze -.as re-  r | "HE} Victoria   Colonist  appears to  have  now no  lV    1 other sourceof inspiration than exploit the  �� fame and advance the interest of F. August  Heinze. During- the recent session of theA  legislature when Heinze and his railway  were under consideration it attempted by .the virulence of  its personal attacks to deter representatives of the, people  from the course which'their judg-ment dictated in calling-  attention to the close''relationship between Mr. Heinze and  the lieutenant-goyerhbr. Under the guise of ^educating the.  people up to the necessity-for the immediate constructionof  a road from Penticton to Boundary Greek it is now conducting- an active campaign in Mr. Heinze's interests.  Everyone is impressed with the necessity for the early .  . construction of a road to connect the Boundary Creek district with at least one railway system, but it is difficult to  understand what good can be accomplished by shouting- that  something- should immediately be dpne to assist Mr. Heinze  to build the road. The dominion parliament has been prorogated for a year and nothing-can be gained in that, quarter. Mr. Heinze under no circumstance ought to get further  aid from the provincial house.  If the  Colonist is not attempting- to g-ive public opinion a  wrong- bias,   if it is honestly striving- to: secure the early ;  construction of a railway into Boundary Creek,   if it is not-'  attempting- to boom, the interests of an individual rather  than the interests of Boundary Creek district in particular  or  the   province   in general,   its   ability   and its influence  should be devoted to educating- public opinion into demanding- that Mr. Heinze should carry out his professions if not  his contracts and at once commence construction of the road.  Surely it will not be conducive to the early and speedy construction of a railway   by  Mr. Heinze  if he  becomes impressed with the idea that because he is armed with  a commission in the shape of a provincial railway  charter he is  the  sole   arbiter  of   the railway situation, and that the resources of the district must remain undeveloped, the enormous wealth of its niines must remain unproduced while he  g-oes beg-ging- in aid of further subsidies.    If the Colonist or  any other provincial paper  wishes   to  do   Boundary   Creek  and the province a c-service,  they will cease advancing- the  interest of those who are in the railway business for the  land grants and the fat subsidies that can be  secured.    Let  them  rather  tell  those  speculators  that  the   people have  already g-iven them the rig-ht to build a railway  into one of  the richest districts under heaven ; that if the3r avail themselves of this right they  will by the levying- of reasonable  rates be enabled to make a larg-e profit from the trade of the  district.  The truth is that throug-h the g-raiiting-'bf larg-e subsidies  to hungry speculators the construction of railways has degenerated, from being- a business enterprise to a legalized  scheme to bleed the public. Take the same Mr.. F. August  Heinze, for instance. If he had been successful in. securing  the dominion government subsidy he applied'for, he and his  associates could have made from two to three millions of  dollars before even a rail was laid, and it is because Mr.  Heinze is anxious to bring- about such a result that B.ound-  ary Greek district must go another year without a railway.  Mr. Heinze wishes to repeat the history of the C. P. R. on a  small scale. In that case a S3rndicate got land grants and  cash subsidies from the dominion government, and before  the3r   had constructed   ten'miles   of railway  the   Stephens  ceived flattering inducements to build the road, provided he  were satisfied to secure returns for capital invested jrom  the profits that are sure to come from operating the road.  In fact,' Mr. Heinze at first considered that abefire charter  granting trie right to build a road into such a rich country  was in itself a very great advantage, but he afterwards  learned that by making governors directors, and barristers  closely related, to the government his solicitors, and by carrying out all the other blandishments of a professional lobbyist he could get more. The more he succeeded in getting  the more he wanted; and now he regrets that he is unable to  build the road into Penticton because he failed to secure a  dominion.' subsidy. :^V''":''\>������'���  A cash subsidy of $4,000 a mile for 110 miles of railway  and a,land grant for the balance should offer sufficient inducement to construct a railway that will hot cost upwards  of probably $20,000 per mile, and if the,Colonist would cease  , clamoring for Mr. Heinze, if public opinion were strongly  expressed in the direction that Mr. Heinze had secured  enough, we are convinced that he would discover that his  hunger for subsidies has become appeased and that o he  would at once beg-in to build the road. "  '��� ���'���'���'��� ��� ���' ���     .-.-.'  ��� ..' ���(?:���;���..   : ;���  .    ���: .���''...������.       .���'��� ' ..'���'���' .'  ��� Ivet us suppose that the provincial government had nothing to do with railways'or railway subsides (and, under the  circumstances we are sorry that it ever granted a subsidy  to a railway company); then if Mr. Heinze went to Ottawa  and asked for a cash subsidy of $12,000 or $14,000 a mile and  a land grant to build a road from Penticton to Trail, it is  hardly probable that his request would have been favorably considered. The construction of a railway is a public  undertaking, and when a private individual receives assistance to enable him to construct, it makes but little difference whether that assistance comes from, the provincial or  dominion government���the people are those who pay.  We are firmly convinced that the wealth of Boundary  Creek will induce the early construction of a railway and  we therefore believe that it would not be in the public interest that Heinze or any other railway promoter should be  granted any further aid. If those organs which are shouting for further aid to the Columbia & Western railway were  possessed of the faculty for conceiving- any -public affair  apart from the interests which they represent, they would  cease their high-sounding- platitudes which are intended to  deceive the public and probably deceive themselves. They  should divorce themselves, from those who are retarding- the  development of the country by being- dissatisfied with the  privileges which have been extended to them and by neglecting, to carry out their promises until they make' another  attempt to get their hands into the pockets of the people.  It is'simply a travest3' on the acts of the legislature that  Mr. Heinze should be so -impressed with the value of the  assistance tfuit he has alreadv received, that he is willintr  to place his company.under bonds to the extent of $50,000  to carry out his contract, and that then an attempt should  be in tide to secure him still further favors. He hits failed to  avail himself of the only wav of benefitting- the public bv  speedil3r constructing- a road into Boundary Creek district,  and is therefore, entitled to no.further public favors.  iV*  jjfe  jjfc  -/K- -/if  BETTER   MAIL   SERVICE.  It is to be hoped that Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M.P., who has  assiduousl\'r been calling the attention of the government to  the needs of the vast district which he represents, will further his efforts by pointing out the necessity for a daily  mail to Greenwood. At present the Marcus stage runs daily  to Greenwood, and there is no   good   reason   why   it   should  dav and leave it the next. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  POPULATION   FIGURES.  The figures in  Williams' provincial  directory show that the  white   population of the mainland has; doubled during the last four  years.    According to  the  directory  the white population on  the mainland is 78,850,   while  that  on  Vancouver and adjacent islands is 38,-  500, making a total of 117,350.    This is  exclusive  of Indians,   whose  total   is  about   25,000.    While  the   figures  are  not likely to be absolutely correct, they  are sufficiently' close to show the great  necessity  for  a redistribution  of provincial seats in the  near future.    The  increase of population in IDast Yale has  probably been as large as that of any  other district in  the  province,   yet   at  the last provincial election  E}ast  Yale  had only one member and  1,022 votes,  while Iallboet had two members for 319  votes, and Esquimalt two members for  451 votes.    It  is  useless carrying  the  comparison further.    Unless  the  government wishes to perpetuate a system  of gerrymander it will  introduce a redistribution bill   at  the  next session,  and such a bill must contain a provision to grant a member to the southern  portion of Dast Yale district.  THE COLUMBIA AND WESTERN.  Mr. F. August Heinze   was in  Spokane   a  few days   ago  on  his way to  Trail.    In the course  of   an  interview  with a: representative  of the  Spokesman-Review, he stated :  "I can tell you nothing about the  railroad question that you have not  ���already told your readers. I feel now  as I have felt all along, that we were  ���entitled to the subsidy. We have spent  vast sums of money in that section to  -develop the territory, while the Canadian Pacific has spent nothing."  ' 'What are your plans for the future ?  'Will the road be built to Penticton,  -anyhow ?"  "That question I am unable to answer  just now. It depends on several things,  and  for  that reason it is impossible to  ..say at present just what will be  done.  It is possible that  something may be  ��� done, but there is nothing certain about  it." ���'���������':.���'.. c  "Have  you  any  hope" or assurance  that the government will allow  a sub-  .sidy at its next regular session?"  "No.    There  is  no  hope  from that  .source.    If certain  thinsrs   can  be  ac-  complished   we   may   be   able   to   go  ahead, but it is difficult to tell any thing  .about it yet."  ALIEN   LABOR   LAW.  Asa great many men will be employed on the construction of the Crow's  Nest Pass railway, the dominion government have decided to protect the  Canadian laborers by putting the Alien  Labor Law in force in Manitoba, the  Northwest and British Columbia. The  . act can be put in operation by the minister of justice appointing agents to  administer the act. These agents will  be appointed at Winnipeg, Lethbridge  and Rossland, and probably at other  points in the west. M. J. Haney, who  has charge of the work of constructing the Crow's Nest Pass railway has  also declared his intention of employing only Canadian labor.  R. R. Hedley, the well known smelter  man of Nelson, is again visiting Greenwood.  ^^:^;M^^^^^.^^  i  IF     YQU     NEED  Hardware,     Stoves,     Granite  and Tinware  CARPENTERS'  and MINERS'  TOOLS  Orb   Cars   and   Raijls  POWDER   AND   STEEL  Paints and Oil        Sashes and Doors  Water Pipes and Fixtures, &c.

McKague has purchased a lot  east of W. B. Paton's residence and  will commence building-, at'Once.  Mr. Gordon, a mining- engineer from  Ivondon, arrived in Greenwood yesterday, arid will spend some time examining-properties in the district;  Neil Lamont, an o experienced tin^  smith and plumber, arrived on Tuesday from Brandon, Man., and is now  employed with Russell & Co.  The  rnembers of the  local  lodge of  the Independent Order of Foresters are  ;���'  requested  to attend  the reg-ular meeting-on Thursday evening-, as business  ���of importance comes up for discussion.  Mr. Robert Wood left the coast for  home several days ago, but will remain for some time at Kamloops, Armstrong and Camp McKinney. He expects to reach Greenwood on Wednes-  - day next.   ���' ,*'. ,'���'.-,  Cameron and McKenzie's new hotel  on Copper street will be completed in  about a week. A larg-e addition has  been built to the rear of the main build-  . ing,giving plenty of room for a first-  . class hotel.  A public meeting- was held", at Midway on Monday evening when town-  site improvements were discussed with  Captain Adams. The townsite company are contemplating- making- several improvements this summer.  A lawn tennis club has been organized in Greenwood. The rnembers are  hard at work constructing- a court opposite Mr. Sutherland's residence, and  they expect to have everything- in readiness to begin playing- in about two  ..weeks.    ' ;<>.  The clearing- of Government street  throug-h the valley is about completed.  The work already done in this part of  the townsite has made it a very desirable looking place for residences, and  in all probability several will be built  there this summer.  The committee who have charge of  the work of collecting- private subscriptions to aug-ment the g-overnment  appropriation for the Iyong I^ake road  have met with gratifying- success, almost sufficient money having- been promised to ensure the construction of the  road to Iyong lake.  While people are dying- by hundreds  in the east from the excessive heat, residents of Greenwood are enjoying- cool  days and refreshing- showers. If one  lived in Chicago with the thermometer  at over 100 in the shade one would wish  he were living- in Greenwood where the  mercury ranges from 65 to 70.  Hon. G. B. Martin, chief commissioner of lands and works, is making  his first trip throug-h the province since  he first took office. He will visit his  own district and Kootenay and will  then come in by the way of Christina  L/ake to Boundary Creek. As chief  commissioner of lands and works he  will find many matters in Boundary  Creek district that require the attention of the government.  On Tuesday next Mr. I. A. Dinsmore,  deputy sheriff, will sell opposite the  post-office, J. Dufour's interests in the  Boston, Dora, and Gold Block claims  in Kimberly camp, the Bond, American E}agle, Winnie F. and J.C. claims  in Skylark camp, and the Iy.A.F.c in  L/ong L,ake camp, in order to satisfy a  judgment for $117.83 obtained by L,e-  quime Bros, against J. Dufour.  Mr. H. A. Guess, M.A., of Guess  Bros., chemists and assayers, left on  Wednesday for Keewatin, where he  takes charge of the chemical department in the reduction works of an  Ottawa company of which Hon. George  1}. Foster, ex-minister of finance, is  president. Mr. Guess was recommended for the position by' the profes  sor of the college from which he graduated. Mr. Guess', many Greenwood  friends will be pleased to learn that the  position is a very important one, and  carries with it a large salary.  The Greenwood City Waterworks Co.  will hold its annual meeting shortly.  The company have already posted  their notices in accordance with their  act of incorporation and the Water  Clauses act. Owing to the delay with  respect to incorporation, the company  have as yet done nothing towards furnishing Greenwood with a system of  waterworks. Under its act of incorporation the municipality has the  power to take over ther waterworks at  actual cost, hence the company are  awaiting the decision of the city fathers  when the town is incorporated.  MINING NOTES.  The work on No. 7 mine in Central  camp has been suspended on account  of water.  Patsy Clark has a large force of men  at work on the claim which he recently  purchased in lOureka camp.  Judgment was given in the Jack of  Spades case at Vancouver last week.  It is understood that since the judgment was delivered Mr. Gire hasoffered  Mr.: Wood a good figure for his interest  in the property.  J. H. Hall, arprominent smelter man  of Butte, has spent the past week examining the niines in the vicinity of  Greenwood1. His object in coming here  was to enquire into thepjossibilities for  the erection of a smelter in the vicinity.  It is gratifying to see that Spokane  capitalists who are interested ih claims  in Boundary Creek district have men at  work developing the same. The American owners have shown considerable  activity during the past week, arid appear to have the necessary courage to  expend their nioney in developing  claims.  A report comes from Camp McKinney that another rich strike has been  made on the Minnehaha. In fact Major Megraw, the manager, sent a dispatch to Mr. H. Kiteley, Toronto, the  secretary of the company, to the effect  that the ledge in the Minnehaha was  struck in the cross-cut at the 65-foot  level. Assays from it showed $108 in  gold and $2 in silver.  The Boundary Creek Mining company have put a large number of men  to work on the L/'ast Chance mine in  Skylark camp. It is understood that  the work on this property will be continued all summer. Considerable work  has already been carried out on this  mine, and the result has been most encouraging to the company. Application has already been made for a crown  grant for the Ivast Chance.  Eureka camp on the reservation is  now experiencing a genuine mining  boom. Miners and prospectors are  flocking there from all quarters. One  day this week nearly sixty prospectors  passed through Grand Forks and all  were bound for Ekireka. It is reported  that a wagon road is to be built through  the reservation from Marcus so as to  avoid using the road in Canadian territory.  Court Boundary, "No, 3576, LO.F.

Ivike the young- men who followed  Horace Greeley's advice and went  West, Mr. Davicf Bryant has "struck  it rich" by doing- likewise. Copper  camp, with its Mother I^ode and its  King- Solomon was considered to be the  western limit of the rich mineral belt  in the vicinity of Greenwood, but Mr.  Bryant, believing- that gfold is where  one finds it, ventured beyond the western purlieu of Copper camp. The result was most gratifying-. The Aberdeen, located some time ag-o by himself  and, two others, has shown up well  under development work; and now Mr.  Bryant has been developing- the Golden  Treasure, which is likely to prove indeed a g-olden treasure. Three distinct  leads have been uncovered, all can^-iiig-  copper, g-old and silver. Assays for  g-old have yielded $12.35 to the ton,  while the quartz is very rich in copper. The ledg-es are over twelve feet  wide and are well defined. The Golden  Treasure is near the Aberdeen and is  about four miles from Copper camp.  Mr. ^Bryant also located a big- iron cap  about a mile from the Golden Treasure.  Pretty Marriage Ceremony.  Mr. Georg-e McKag-ue and bride arrived on Sunday from Penticton; where  they remained for two days.. The Vernon News contains the following-report  of the marriag-e:  "A very pretty marriag-e ceremony'  took place on Wednesday morning- in  the Methodist church, when Miss Ada  Mohr, eldest daughter of Charles Mohr  of this city, and Mr. Georg-e McKag-ue  of Greenwood, were united in the  bonds of matrimoii3r by Rev^ S. J.  Thompson. A larg-e number, of the  friends of the young- couple were present. The church was beautifully decorated with a profusion of flowers, and  the contracting- parties stood under an  arch formed of evergreen and cut  flowers which made a most pleasing-  effect. The bride, who was attired in.  a handsome traveling- costume, carried  a splendid bouquet. The bridesmaid  was her sister, Miss .Lina Mohr, and  the groom was supported bj H. C.  Cooper. The bridal party left b3r the  morning- train for Greenwood, their  future home. Among- other valuable  and useful presents the bride was presented with a handsome parlor lamp  and a silver butter dish in grateful re-  cog-nition of her services in the choir  and Sunday school."  is  .-efca��o-.

Mr.    F.   Keffer,    manager    of    thec  Boundary  Mines  company,  writes  to  the  Times to state that the Boundary  Mines   company  did not transfer their  properties to himself in order to evade  payment of the new  joint  stock  company's  free  miners'   certificate.    The  money for   the said certificate was deposited with  the recorder at the close  of June, but owing to the absence of  official  notification   that the company  had  been registered under the provisions  of  the  New  Companies' act (although application, had been made  at  Victoria  for said registration) the free  ��� miners' certificate could not be legally  issued by the local office.    The reason  for the transfer of the claims is therefore obvious.  We are pleased to publish Mr.'-Kef-  fer's reason for the transfer. The  transfer having been made when other  companies were doing likewise to avoid  the Companies' license the public would  naturally infer that the Boundary  Mines company had similar reasons  for the transfer of the claims. Mr.  Keffer clearly explains the matter, however. :    , ���������     ..'..��� -  Brandon and Golden Crown.  Walter ~L,. Orde, secretary-treasurer  of the Brandon and Golden Crown company, paid a flying visit to the company's ^property this week. He arrived  in Greenwood on Sunday and returned  to Rossland on Monday. This was Mr.  Orde's first visit to the Golden Crown,  and needless to say he was highly  elated at the result  already accomplished  accompanied by Mr.  Francisco,   who   is  from  the  work  Mr. Orde was  Hover. of   San  different  visiting  districts with a view to investment, his  brother being a well known-millionaire  of California. Mr. Orde's visit was  necessarily a very hurried one, but  Hon. T. M. Daley, the president, and  some of the directors will come in here  in about two weeks and will remain  some time.  A Veteran Prospector.  While the miners and prospectors of  the different districts of British Columbia are composed of representatives of  almost every nation and every class,  Boundary Creek has the honor of having in it a prospector who belongs to  those who endured   the   vicissitudes of  the gold excitement  of  1858  and   the  majority of whom   have  now  crossed  the Great Divide.    Andrew Waddell, a  native of Goderlch,  Ont.,  crossed  the  continent in 1858,   and   experienced all  the ups and downs of'." the days of old  and the days of gold," both, in California and on  the  Frasef  river.    He  returned to his old home, lived in  Manitoba, and  came1 to  Rossland  about a  year ago.   He reached Boundary Creek  about a month   ago,   and0 in   company  with W. T. Hayes  and   F.  R.   Pretty,  both  from   Goderich,   spent  the  time  since   then   in    prospecting   on   Pass  creek.    They  located  two  claims, the  Waknapital and  the  Morning  Glory,  and   upon   these   sufficient  work  has  been done  to  justify  the  assumption  that they will   both   turn  out  paying  mines.    Messrs.  Waddell,  Hayes  and  Pretty intend spending the entire summer   prospecting  in  Boundary  Creek  district.      Mr.   Waddell,   despite    his  years, is yet hale and hearty and looks  as if he were still capable of doing considerable    searching   for   the   yellow  metal.,  GREENWOOD   NOTES.

John Gulley, a brother of Thomas  Gulley, arrived in Greenwood from Toronto on Tuesday, and will reside here  in the future. Mr. Gulley made a  trip through Kootenay en route.  Congratulations are in order to Mr.  arid Mrs. R. Smailes on the arrival of a  little son. "Smailes junior" is no ordinary youngster, for he goes the proverbial ten pounds and one better.  Mr. Walter ly. D'Aeth has awarded  to S. Iy. Graham the contract for erection of a large one and a half story  residence on Silver street, work on  which has alread3r begun. In all probability Mr. D'Aeth will erect a store on  Government street near the townsite  office this summer.  The Greenwood brewery will be in  operation within a week. Messrs.  L/eibes & Forsechner, the proprietors,  have everything in readiness and are  waiting for their license. Both proprietors are experienced brewers and  are confident that they can supply a  delectable fluid to satisfy the thirst of  the most fastidious beer drinkers.  Mr. George Rankin, the contractor  for the tunnel on the. Sunset, narrowly  escaped being killed on Tuesday morning. He was working at the head of  the tunnel, which is in nearly 150 feet,  when he was caught by falling rock.  Mr. Rankin jumped outward to escape  but the mass of rock caught him by  both legs and pinned him to the bottom  of the tunnel. Mr. Bond, who was  working near him, succeeded in extricating him, and it was found that  although badly bruised no bones were  broken.  OHN   A.

Watson, principal of the Okanagan Mission school, and an extensive  fruit-grower,  is   taking   advantage of  the   summer    vacation   to    visit    the  Boundary Creek and Kettle  river districts.     Mr.    Watson   is   also one   of  the  directors  of the Okanagan  Agricultural arid Trades Association,  who  are   preparing   to  hold   their   second  annual  exhibition in Septeriiber.   The  directors    are    anxious     that    there  should be sent from this district an exhibit of   riiirierals  from  the  different  camps,   and Mr. Watson has succeeded  in inducing Messrs. Filley & Ogden to  take charge of the exhibit from Grand  Forks,   while  Mr.   C. S. Galloway will  arrange and take charge of the exhibits from the camps surrounding Greenwood.    The success of the mineral exhibit will  necessarily  depend largely  upon  the  interest by owners of niines  and claims in the district. They should  take sufficient  interest in  advertising  the district to send in; specimens from  the   properties.    The   Vernon  exhibition  will  be, held  a   few  days   after  the   Okanagan   one   and   the   exhibit  could  be   forwarded   there.    Eyxhibits  should be sent from the mines as early  as possible, and  may  be sent  to the  Times office or to Mr. Galloway. If sufficient interest is taken  in the  matter;  and  exhibits forwarded that will accurately represent the wealth of  Boundary  Creek  district, the advertisement  will pay for any trouble or expense.   ,  Courtroom  and Jail.  . Mr. F. H. L/awder, the 'provincial  police officer, has received the plans  and specifications for the courtroom  and jail to be erected for the provincial  government at Greenwood. The plans  show a neat frame building 20x36, with  a 12-foot ceiling. A veranda runs  along the front of the building. The  jail will contain two cells and an  officers' room. Mr. Iyawder also received plans and specifications for the  government buildings at Grand Forks.  MINING NOTES.  Mr. J. A. Monteith has been appointed manager for the Strath eyre  company of Fairview.  . Mr. J. A. Coryell, P.Iy.S., has completed the survey of the Sunset and  Crown Silver claims, and application  will be made for crown grants for the  claims.    ,  ;The Smuggler company of Fairview,  after putting 50 tons of ore through the  Strath eyre mill had a cleanup, and the  result was a gold brick of 40 ounces.  The concentrates, which are very rich,  will be sent to the Everett smelter.  F. C. Innes, who is interested in the  Gold Drop mine in Greenwood camp,  returned from Kootenay on Saturday  and spent some time on the property.  Mr. Innes stated that the owners of  the Gold Drop had decided to do but  little work on the mine this summer.  F. W. Hankey and Iy. Irvine Baldwin of Conconnully,. Wash., returned  home Tuesday evening after a two  weeks' visit in Greenwood. During  that time they visited many of the  mines, and were - very favorably impressed with the mineral richness of  Boundary Creek district.  Mr. Reuger expects the winch for the  Skylark mine to arrive shortly when  the work of pumping out water -will be  resumed. A promising lead has been  discovered on th.e Denver, belonging to  the same company, and considerable  development work will be carried out  on the claim this summer.  t  as  W," d.    ARMSTRONG.

O.  &  -7W THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  Centre of a Good Camp.  Mr. W. A. Carlyle, the provincial  mineralogist, arrived in Rossland last  week, and in conversation with a representative of the Rossland Miner gave a  resume of his field work since he left  "Victoria. Speaking of Boundary Creek  district, he ventured the rather flattering opinion that Greenwood is the central point of what is going to be a good  camp. Regarding the mines in Bound-:  ary Creek and surrounding districts  Mr. Carlyle said: ���  "I went from Fairview to Camp McKinney, where I saw the Cariboo mine.,  It has a shaft down 170 feet and in the  bottom the3r are finding the best ore  ever taken from the mine. The underground workings extend 700 feet on a  solid ore shoot, which the surface workings indicate to be 1,200 feet long. The  vein is from 4 to 6 feet wide, and the  company claims to,be saving from $15  to $16 oh the plates. There are other  quartz veins at Camp McKinney, but I  could not learn that there was a^'thing  else there carrying the values of the  Cariboo. -:  "I went to Midway for a short time  and then to Greenwood, where I  spent  three weeks visiting all  the  surround-,  ing camps.    At Xong Iyake .camp lyes-  lie  Hill is doing some fine prospecting  work in the Jewel.    He has a  vein  of  quartz which runs high in gold. Greenwood is   the   central   point  of what is  g-oing to be a good  camp.    There has  not been a g-reat deal of work done, but  some large "pre bodies have been found,  though as a rule they are of low grade.  "I went down   to   Grand  Forks and  out to  see  the  Volcanic,, PathFinder  and other properties on the North Fork  of Kettle  river.    The   Volcanic   is    a  problem.      The    surface    showing   is  enormous, but it remains  to  be seen  how  niuch  solid  ore can be found and  how much it is worth.    The Pathfinder  looks well.  - "Taking- the Boundary country'' altogether it is certainly one of great.possibilities. I would be glad to see more  active work done there���more real  earnest -mining. They will tell you  the}'- are, waiting for a railroad, but.it  should not be forgotten that the best  way to g-etna railroad is to show up,  enough ore to justify its construction."  Real  Estate  Changes  Hands.  Messrs. Nelson & .Tynan, the proprietors of the Pioneer hotel, have purchased from Messrs. Sansom & Holbrook the lot adjoining the hotel, the  consideration being $800. The lot has  a 25-foot ' frontag-e on Government  street and is 100 feet deep. Upon it  has been erected a substantial foundation and floor for a building-. This  g-ives Messrs. Nelson & Tynan a frontage of 75 ft. on Government street, and  they have so much confidence in the  speedy growth of Greenwood and their  business is increasing- to such an extent thatthe3r intend in the near future  to erect a tliree-stbry hotel. The purchase price shows that Greenwood real  estate is not depreciating in value.  Messrs. Dier and Davidson of Fair-  view have purchased the Stemwinder  claim in Fairview camp from Messrs.  Sheean and Watkins. There were last  week no less than fifteen teams hauling-machinery from Penticton to Fair-  view for Messrs.

On   Monday afternoon a team representing  the   Nelson   (Wash.) baseball  club  met  and defeated the Greenwood  team.    The Nelson nine were an aggregation   of good ball-players���fall, athletic and well trained, and more than a  match  for  the Greenwood   boys,   the  majority  of  whom   are, or were, good  players,   but  lack the necessafy training for good team work. ^ Mr. R. Rat-  cliff e of Greenwood made a fair referee  whose general decisions gave satisfaction to both sides.    The   visitors went  to   bat   in   the   first   inning,      Medill  pitching a swift and  difficult ball  for  the home team. , M. F- Miller, too, who  was  catcher  for the Greenwood team,  played  an  almost errorless game, but  lack of training told and   Medill threw  wild in the last  four   or   five   innings.  He  was  relieved once by Coryell, who  threw a swift but rather wild ball. On  the     other    hand,    Campbell    pitched  strong  throughout   the  nine  innings,  his   delivery    being   speedy   and   his  curves  difficult  to   find.    Donagh, the  catcher, also materially helped to keep  down the score of the home team.    But  the   chief  strength of the Nelson team  lay in the strength of its field, Capsey  and   Welsher  catching   some  difficult  balls on   very rough ground.    At  the  end of the fourth inning the score was  even,  but then  the  Greenwood  team  went to pieces  and the   match closed  with a score of 35 to 17 in favor of the  visitors.    The big score was because of  the rough ground, as it was almost impossible to  field a ball among stumps  and rocks.  Greenwood has the material for a  good baseball nine, but they cannot expect to win matches without practice.  The teams .were as follows :  GREENWOOD.  SCOKE.  NELSON.  Miller, M. C.  c.  Donagh.

Other claims beside the Volcanic were  jumped on the supposition that the  companies owning theni had neglected  to take out their Companies' licenses.  The Klsie May claim on the North  Fork was relocated by Robert Moll  of Carson. Neil McCallum of Grand  Forks, who is heavily interested in the  l^lsie Ivlay company maintains the  license was taken out, but Mr. Moll  says he  will  fight  the  case.  Messrs.. Keough and son also relocated the R. Bell, in Summit camp.  They are the original locators of this  promising property and are heavily interested in the R. Bell company, who  owned the claim. Messrs. Keoug'h and,  son probably relocated the claim to  protect the company.  MR.   CORBIN'S   PLANS.  It is reported that Mr. Corbin has  made arrangements in the east by  which his railroads are merged tinder  the control of one company, with only  one mortgage, and sufficient money in  the treasury to undertake the work of  constructing a road through the reservation and tip into Boundary Creek  district. As has been pointed out, his  opportunity to secure and control the  trade of this rich district now presents  itself,jand lie is shrewd enough to seize  it���if he can finance the money. If  he does so he will find that the people  of this district will give him a hearty-  welcome. The majority of the people  in the district are not swayed by the  sentimental bugaboo about diverting  trade throug-h wrong0 channels.    Busi  ness exigencies  recognize no interna  tional boundary line. ' If Mr. Corbin  builds he is entitled to the trade, and  he.will secure it.  Knob Hill and Old Ironsides.  The' companies which Mr. J. P.  Graves of Spokane organized in the  east to develop the Knob Hill and Old  Ironsides in Greenwood camp have already commenced work on these valuable properties. Mr. Henry White has  charge of the work in the Old Ironsides and has several men at work.  The water has all been taken out of the  shaft and a partition has been put in  to improve the ventilation. Machinery  for forcing the bad air out of the mine  has also arrived from Spokane. The  work on the Knob Hill is under super-  intendency of J. F. Hemenway. He  has also several men at work. It is  understood that considerable work will  be.carried out this summer in both  properties.  Mr. Alfred Woodhouse.  Mr. Alfred Woodhouse, M.I.M.M., of  I/ondon,    arrived    from   Rossland   on  Wednesday   and   will   spend   another  week   in further examining properties  in Boundary Creek district.   Mr. Woodhouse stated to a Times representative  that his opinion of the district could be  best   g-uaged   by.  the . lengthy  report  which   he  sent  his principals in Fng--  land.     That report included his views  on the different districts which he had  visited, and he was so much impressed  with the importance of BoundaiwCreek  district that he devoted to it as  much  space  as was  given to the Slocan district.    The ores generally are smelting  and concentrating, and the  first requisite is the erection of smelters and concentrators near  the   mines.    There  is  no good reason  why these should not  be erected before a railway is constructed into the district. Greater difficulties have been surmounted elsewhere than are to be found here. No  district offers greater inducements for  a smelter than does Boundary Creek,  the wonderful  variety of ores making  the smelting problem an easy one.  Mr. Woodhouse was one of the speakers at the banquet given in Rossland  on Saturday evening in honor of lyieu-  . ten ant-Governor -Dewdney, Lieutenant-Governor Mcintosh of the Northwest territories, and W. A. Carlyle,  the provincial mineralogist. The banquet was a decided success. Other  speakers besides the guests of the evening and Mr. Woodhouse were Mayor  Scott, General Warren and Dr. Bowes.  HASTEN   INCORPORATION.  The question of incorporation has  been referred to in The Times more  than orice, but we are forced to confess  that we find the executive hide of the  government tougher than we had expected. We were foolish enough to  think that judicious prodding would  induce them to do something in the  matter of granting Greenwood its letters patent,\ but residents of .Greenwood are pursuing the even tenor of  their way without the guidance of His  Worship the Mayor and a board of  Aldermen. It is now nearly three  months since application was made for  incorporation, and that ought to be  sufficient for even the Turner government to deal with the matter.  THE   PENTICTON   ROAD.  At the annual meeting of the Victoria board of trade Premier Turner in  referring to the annual report said  that he had noticed an expresssion to  the effect that the provincial government should urge upon the dominion  government the construction of the  Penticton road this summer, and he  would state that the provincial government is now corresponding with the  dominion government on this very subject, and also with reference to constructing- the road to the coast. He  felt pretty sure, however, that the do-  mion government will not deal with  more than the Penticton road this year.  THE  SMUGGLER  COMPANY.  Mr. Alexander H.   Dixon,  treasurer  of the Smuggler Gold Mining and Milling company, has returned to Toronto  from Fairview, where he had charge of  the  company's  interests  since first of  February   last,   and  in   an  interview  with a  representative  of the Toronto  Globe  he  spoke most enthusiastically  not only of the niines in which he is interested, but of  the   mines  of British  Columbia considered  as a  whole.    In  Mr. Dixon's  opinion   a  great deal  of  eastern money which has been  poured  into the Trail Creek   and   Slocan  districts  could  have been   invested with  more   immediate   results   in Boundary  Creek,   Fairview   and   other  districts  further w^est.    The Smuggler company  have  purchased   the   Skylark, a  fractional claim adjoining.    The company  has also purchased an engine and boiler  from Goldie & McCulloch  of  Gait  for  the  Strathejnre  mill,   which   has been  leased.  It is possible that the alluvial deposits which have been washed down  bj' Boundary Creek, Kettle river and  its other tributaries to form the Kettle  river valley, are rich in gold, and that  placer diggings along Kettle river may  yet become as famous as those of Cariboo or Omineca. Several placer claims  have already been located along the  Kettle river, and the washing therefrom has given very gratifying results. The gold is coarse and plentiful.

GIBBS,  GREENWOOD  B.C. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  A   BIG   DEAL.  A story comes from Rossland which  is on a par with many of the railway  rumors that have been floating around  for the past few weeks. The new story  is to the effect that there is a big deal  on foot there which, if consummated,  will prove a great factor in developing  the Boundary Creek district, including  Cascade City, Grand Forks, Greenwood, Fairview and other camps. One  of the big railway corporations is of  course behind the deal, and they have  made an offer to the owners of the  fownsite and water-power at Cascade  City to purchase the absolute right to  the magnificent water power at that  points It is stated that should the  company secure the power it will build  a railway and "establish car shops and  terminal facilities at Cascade City and  develop the water power to such a degree as to furnish ample power to the  mines of that whole district, and light  and heat to the many camps in that  -country."-.  We publish the story because it, may,  bring hope to the despondent, but to us  it has a fishy aroma. In the first place  the absolute right to the magnificent  water-power at Cascade City, and all  other provincial water-powers, is vested  in the Crown and cannot be sold by the  owners of Cascade City to anyone. In  the second place, the Cascade Power &  Ivight Co., incorporated during the last  session of the legislature, were granted  a prior right to the use of 150,000 inches  of water from the Cascade, falls. Dr.  Jones, the principal shareholder in the  Cascade Company, passed through  Greenwood a few weeks ago and he  tlien took the first steps towards surveying the company's property and  beginning operations.  Back From Butte.  Mr. W. T. Smith, of the Republic  Mining company, returned on Thursday from a trip to Butte and Kaslo.  While in Butte he interviewed the  members of the Parrot company, with  whom he is associated, and they decided to secure crown grants for all  their properties in the district. Mr.  Smith also saw Mr. Corbin in Spokane,  and the. latter expressed his intention  of coming into Boundary Creek just as  soon as he could make arrangements  to do so. Mr. Smith states that Boundary Creek district is attracting much  attention on the outside, and the only  thing that keeps miners from more extensively developing their properties  and capitalists from making further investments is the lack of railway connection.  Prairie Schooners.  The days for prairie schooners have  not ended yet. On Saturday the citizens of Greenwood were rather surprised to see two of these useful though  slow vehicles passing through the  town. The occupants were from Butte  city, and they drove all the way. The  party included three ladies and seven  or eight men.. At the head is Mr. McDonald, who was in here last year and  located some claims on Pass creek.  The immediate object of making the  trip by wagon from Butte, is to do the  assessment work on these claims, but  the whole party will probably settle  down here. All the men are practical  miners.  W. R. Megaw, of Vernon, passed  through Greenwood on Thursday last  on his way home from Carson, B. C.
