Owing to the  long evenings the hall was not filled until;  nearly nine o'clock. Those who came early  enjoyed themselves by liberally applauding every one who  made an appearance at the outside door. When Mr. Martin  appeared the crowd broke into cheers and the candidate was  at once convinced that the people of Greenwood were a  unit in his favor.     .  His Worship Mayor Wood who was voted to the chair  was indisposed and consequently his remarks were brief.  They were sufficiently lengthy however to place himself on  record in his uncompromising' opposition to the Turner  administration.  ; Mr. Martin was again applauded 'Upon his rising to  address the audience. He first read the following platform  endorsed by the opposition convention and to which Mr.  Martin pledged his unswerving loyalty :  1.' The portion of the Boundary Country at present  included in the Rossland Electoral District is fully entitled  to separate representatation and every effort must be made  to secure the same at the earliest possible date.  2. The adjustment of representation of   the  Province &  c on a general equitable system.  3. Reorganization of the   Civil   Service with a view to  ���"greater efficiency and economy in administration.  4. Eiberal expenditure on necessary, public works  under such rigid supervision as will secure commensurate  results.  5. Discouragement of immigration and employment of  ' Orientals.  6. The amendment of the Eand Act so that coal will  be reserved along with other minerals. Timber to be disposed of by open competition and in such quantities as the  trade demands. Agriculture lands to be reserved for actual  settlers. ',,.'���  7. Repeal of the tax commonly known as the Mortgage  Tax.  8. A man should not be compelled to take out a Free  Miner's License before he can work in a mine for wages.  9. Any future aid to railways to be under efficient Provincial control both as to the raising and expenditure of the  capital,the rate of transportation-and as to the employment  of labor.  10. That the normal working expenditure of the province must be reg-arded so as not to exceed the normal revenue.  11. That coal mines be placed on the same footing as  metalliferous mines as regards taxation.  12. A substantial increase in the Provincial Tax on  wild lands.  lo.  That  eieiit   hours  shall   constitute   a  dav's labor  upon all Provincial Government work and upon all contracts  -or sub-contracts to which the Government may be party and  shall also constitute a day's work for all workmen engaged  underground in mining.  14. That a Provincial Boiler Inspector be appointed  and those in charge   of   boilers   and eng-ines be certificated  men.  15.. The introduction of Legislation that will speedily  secure to the working people of our Province one day's rest  per week.  Mr. Martin briefly discussed the different planks. He  criticized the action of the Turner government in respect to  legislation outlined in the platform dwelling1 particularity  upon the iniquitous franchise, the miserable railway policy  the unwise and unbusiness-like expenditure of public money  the employment of Chinese and the repeal of the Mortgage  Tax.--' - ��� ���   ���' ' , '_    '       - ."'./,���;���..    ,  With reference to the redistribution bill Mr. Martin  stated that not one day should be. lost in granting Boundary  Creek the representation to which it is justly entitled.  After extending a cordial invitation to any government  supporter to address the meeting Mr. Martin resumed his  seat amid applause.    ." ��� ;  Mr. Martin's invitation was seconded by. the chairman  but the audience laughingly informed him that there were  no government supporters in the district. Mr. -Ross was  then called upon to address the meeting.   .  Mr. Ross said that   he   was   uncompromisingly opposed  to the Turner government.    He had always been opposed to  the Turner administration because he believed that its polic}r  was one of favoritism to unimportant sections and   neglect  to the   important mining sections.    While in  opposition to  the Turner government he always had respect for  the opinions of those who differed from him in their political views.  He wished to say at the outset that  he   had   now   anything:  but  respect for   any   one   in   Boundary Creek district who  would support the Turner government.    This is no ordinary-  contest.    It is not merely a discussion of the relative merits  of the political parties engaged in the political battle.    It is  a war against political insults and  mal-adrainistration.    It  is a struggle of free and  independent  electors  for political  existence and for political recognition.    The man who would  support the enemy in such a contest is a traitor to   the   district.     (Applause.)    The fight has been forced by the government above the level of party politics   and   should be a  united protest against the enemy.    Mr. Ross then  referred  briefly to the redistribution.    He said that it was a measure  which carried the province back to the dark ages in England  when the pocket burroughs controlled the-government of the  country.    He could not but believe  that  the   spirit of independence which urged  the   British to struggle   until   not a  vestage of political inequality remained was  just as active  in   Boundary   Creek  and that the people  would be found  united in a similar struggle.    He did not grant the Turner  government the right to tell the people of  Boundary  Creek  that they had only one-twelfth as   much L power as the residents of Cassiar nor the right to say that a farmer in Esqui-  malt should have ten times   as  much   political   power as a  miner in Boundary Creek.    The redistribution bill was the  refuge of a   cowardly administration.    The  draft measure  prepared by the government provided a member for Boundary Crtek but when at the dictation of  a powerful corporation the government wantonly interferred in a struggle the  people of Boundary Creek were  making to   secure  immediate railway construction they became alarmed at the indignation   aroused.    Political   morality   was   trampled under  foot, solemn promises  made   by  the premier  were deliberately violated and the people of Boundary Creek were practically disfranchised.  Mr. Ross referred briefly to the railway policy of the  government and then pointed out that Mr. James Martin  was pledged to a platform that recognizes the political  rights of Boundary Creek and outlines legislation that is  peculiarly in the interests of this  district.    He  knew of no  one that; is more likely to carry out the pledges than James  Martin. (Hear! hear.) His opponent was masquerading  under a very   ragged   mantle  of   independence.    He    was  (Concluded  on  page 4.) ��������  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  AN   ENTHUSIASTIC   MEETING.  (Continued from page 3.)  simply a government footer. He was  not placed in the field to exploit the  fame or extoll the virtues of the Turner  g-overnment. He was there for appearances. He could only secure the votes  of those who had no adequate conception of their duty and of the camp followers who are searching for pecuniary  crumbs during every election campaign. There is only one candidate  in the field pledged to a platform and  a policy which are in the interests of  the district and that candidate is  James Martin.  After a vote of thanks had been tendered to the chairman a great many of  those in the hall volunteered to become  active workers in the campaign. The  work of organization was begun.  Thos. Hardy was unanimously chosen  campaign chairman and Duncan Ross  campaign secretary. The following  committees were then appointed.  Voter's L/ist Committee: Duncan  Ross, H. B. Munroe, J. W. Grier, Alex  Currie, Aid. James Kerr and Aid. C.  Scott Galloway.  Transportation Committee: Aid.  M. J. Phelan, W. S. Keith and D. C.  McRae.  Executive committee: Thos. Hardy,  A. S. Black and G. R. Naden.  No time was lost. The committees  got to work at once. Central committee rooms were secured, Thos. Walsh's  building on Copper street having been  secured for the purpose. The committee rooms are always open.  At Midway.  On Saturday night a well attended  meeting was held at Midway. E.  Jacobs was voted to the chair and Mr.  Martin addressed the meeting. He  was followed by Mr. Ross. Mayor  Wood then spoke briefly and Mr. Thos.  Hardy a brief speech in ridiculed Mr.  Turner's much lauded financeering.  He pointed'out that the government  buildings and the consolidation of the  statutes had cost nearly double the  amount estimated and that money had  been extravagantly frittered away in  other quarters. Mr. Hardy strongly  denounced the administration of the  L/ands and Works department and  closed with an earnest request that the  people remain loyal to the district and  support the opposition candidate.  Mr. Murray endorsed Mr. Hardy's  remarks in a short but pointed speech.  He suggested that the people of Midway organize for the campaign.  Mr. Jacobs spoke briefly. He pointed  out that Mr. McKane during his visit  here endeavored to make political capital out of the assertion that Mr. Martin  secured his nomination through promising to build a hardware store in  Greenwood. Mr. Wood, Mr. Ross and  Martin denied that a hardware store  was ever suggested.  The Midway electors then organized  themselves into a campaign committee.

Greenwood will hum when 2000 to  3000 men are engaged near by in the  work of construction.  It is reported that D. C. Corbin has  sold his railway S3''steni to the Northern Pacific. The report has not been  verified.  H.   L,.   Wilgress   the   right   of way  agent has gone  to  Grand Forks for a'  few days.    Mr. Wilgress intends spending the entire  summer in the district.  Work has begun at the Penticton  end. The survey party is in the field.  The party is in charge of A. B. Ross,  recently from Glenora. It is stated  that active construction will begin before August 8th. ,'���  E. J. Coyle the general passenger  agent for the C. P. R. with headquarters at Vancouver paid Greenwood a  visit last week. He went out by the  way of Marcus. During his visit here  Mr. Coyle appointed D. R. McElmon  local ticket agent for the C. P. R.  W- F. Tye, chief engineer, is a busy  nian these days. He keeps moving  from Cascade City to Midway. Mr.  Tye is dailj' approached - for information by anxious property owners and  he has the happy faculty of sending  them all away satisfied without disclosing any C. P. R. secrets.  In compliance with the wishes of the  residents of Greenwood the C. P. R.  has made a new survey in the city.  The new location line runs to the west  side of Boundary Creek and should the  line be built there it will not in any  way interfere with property in the city.  It is understood that the C. P. R. is  quite willing to meet the wishes of the  people if at all practicable.  Brooklyn is the latest- sensation in  cities. From a wilderness of forest  sprang up a city of tents which is being rapidly converted into a live substantial railway centre. Brooklyn is  the headquarters of the railway contractors and the distributing point for  all supplies. The contractors are now  concentrating all their forces on the  construction of the wagon road to Cascade City in order that a large force of  men may be worked at this end of the  line. As soon as the wagon road is  completed, it is expected that 5000 men  will be engaged.  THE   NOMINATIONS.  Nominations for the approaching  general election were made at Rossland on Saturday last. W. B. Town-  send is- the returning officer. The  nominations follow :  James Morris Martin (Opposition)  was proposed by David B. Bogle, seconded by Thomas Wesley Coleman and  assented to by John Binns Johnson,  James Wilks and A. H. MacNeill;  Thomas Parker is the candidate's  agent.

Here are a dozen reasons .why the  electors should vote for Jarnes Martin :  1. Because the Turner government  left the district without  a representa-  ���. tive.  2. Because the Turner " government  opposed the Corbin charter.  3. Because the Turner government  refused the necessary appropriation  for roads. !  4. Because the Turner g-overnment  is owned by the Dunsmuirs of Vancouver Island.  5. Because the candidate of the  Turner government is a windy, figurehead.  6. Because the Turner government  is deliberately attempting to bribe the  people with their own money.  7. Because .the Turner government  is the government of Chinese and monopolies.  8. Because the Turner government  fines a Mainland miner five dollars for  working underground.  9. Because the Turner government  has given away the public lands to  railway promoters who never built  railwavs.  10. Because the Turner government  has violated solemn promises made  with reference to Boundary Creek district.  11. Because James Martin will fight  for the interests of the district.  12. Because   it  is time for a change.  MAIL   SERVICE.  W. J. Snodgrass has returned; to  Okanagan Falls after making arrangements to run a four horse stage daily  between Green wood, and Grand Forks.  Mr. Snodgrass has secured an eight  passenger coach which will be placed  on the line in about a week.  The postoffice department has not  made arrangements to pay for a daily  mail service between Greenwood and  Grand Forks. Postoffice Inspector-  Fletcher promised to have this matter  attended to by May 1st. If the post-  office department does not attend to  the matter Mr. Snodgrass has decided  to discontinue carrying the mail gratuitously on alternate days. It is difficult to understand why there should  be so much delay in this matter. If  the department is at all acquainted  with the importance of this district, it  must surely: recognize the absolute  necessity for a daily mail service.  Church  of  England.  The Archdeacon of Columbia arrived  in Greenwood Wednesday evening for  a meeting of the church members, at  which the usual committee was appointed to manag-e the affairs of the  church here, Mayor Wood, Messrs.  Moulton-Barrett and Smailes being  chosen to constitute this body which is  the initial step in the formation of a  parish.  Service will be he.ld in Rendell's  hall on Sunday evening at the usual  hour by Mr. Irwin to which all are  heartily invited.  4* *k ���$���$?  ��f��  Is prepared to supply the trade with first-class Bottled Beer  manufactured by   the '" L/ion  Brewery   Company,   I/td.v"  of Rossland.

A chimney was blown down,  windows broken and there were other  damages. :  The government have several electors at work on the new wagon road  between Fairview and Kererneos. The  men are not saying much but they  wink knowingly and remark sotto  voice  that   the   ballott   is secret.  A rather novel school election was  held at Fairview on Saturday.

Protection against fire is a matter in which every one is directly interested. In a town like Greenwood with  nothing but wooden buildings, lire is  its most dangerous enemy. IDvery citizen therefore should show his appreciation of any effort made to lessen the  danger. Unfortunately people who  have been blessed with an immunity  from fires become careless and fall into the habit of considering themselves  and the city in the hands of a special  Providence. It is only when their  property is destroyed and their business ruined that they become aroused  to the necessity for united action. We  hope that the residents of Greenwood  are possessed of sufficient forethought  to organize before a serious fire takes  place. A volunteer lire department  can do much to fight fires. It should  receive the encouragement and support of every citizen. .  At the head of the department there  should be a man who can enthuse the  volunteers into properly training themselves for the work. Fighting fires is  a profession in which one becomes  efficient only after a course of hard  training.  Sneak Thieves.  Theft seems to be one of the accompaniments of the rush into this district. Heretofore a prospector or claim  holder could leave his tools and supplies anywhere and they would never  be disturbed but with the rush this  summer came a class who do not believe in  the   established   principle   of  honor among prospectors and who take  other people's property at every opportunity.  The sneak thieves appear to have  scattered all over the country for  reports of articles missing come from  every section of the district. Near  home the D. A., cabin has been stripped of everything except the stove  Other cabins in the district have been  broken into. Up the West Fork, prospectors tools have been taken. H}ven  horses have not escaped their attention  and a prospector's horse turned out  with a bell and hobble returned without either.  We cannot help thinking., that provincial police officers who show so  much anxiety to enforce the law in  small and unimportant matters might  turn their serious attention towards  making ah example of some of the undesirable class who have invaded the  district. fc   c   \  Turner at Rtfssland.  Hon. J. H. Turner, premier of British Columbia held a meeting at Rossland on Friday evening last. He delivered a very weak speech and F. C. Cotton replied vigorously. The meeting  was two to one in favor of the opposition. Betting men in Rossland are  giving odds in favor of Martin. In a  window on the main street is $1000 in  favor of Martin without takers. W.  B. Davey of Grand Forks bet $1000  last week that Martin   will be elected.  The Greenwood Hospital.  Notwithstanding the fact that the  provincial government has consented  to pay the Greenwood hospital account  for the care of an indigent miner, it  has so far neglected to guarantee the  accounts for the care of similar cases.  As the government refused to place  the Greenwood hospital on the same  footing as other hospitals in the province with reference to appropriations  Dr. Jakes will refuse to receive any  patients unable to pay for their maintenance until the government makes  '"'some.definite arrangements.  James Martin the opposition candidate left on Tuesday for Grand Forks  where a public meeting will be held.  Highest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

Okanagan  Flour  Mill  Co.'s  Flour  is  THE  BEST !  /  DEDICATION    OF    THE    FIRST    CHURCH  The event of the week ��� in religious  circles of the Boundary Creek district  was the dedication on Sunday last  of the new Catholic church at  this place by Rev. Father Palmer,  priest in charge of this parish.  Situated on one of the most beautiful  knolls in the north end of the city and  commanding a view of all points of the  compass, stands a structure known as  the church of the Sacred Heart that  not only the Catholics of the congregation may feela just pride in claiming  as their own but also one which can be  pointed to by every resident of this  section as an evidence of the work  which can be accomplished by the  united efforts of all irrespective of  creed.  The style of the architecture of this  edifice is Gothic and for the amount of  money expended viz $2,500, could not  have been improved upon. The building is 25x50 and has with the gallaries  a seating capacity 'of 500. From the  ground to the top of cross is 91 feet  which from the elevation of the site  makes the building one of the most  conspicious in the city. The builders,  Derosier and Bourke exerted themselves to produce the finest building  possible under the plans and specifications as submitted and have more than  creditably acquitted themselves.  Services were held at 10:30 a. m. and  7;30 p. m. In the morning Rev. Father  Palmer discussed the subject of " The  Mass" as taught by the Catholic  church and in the evening "The Adoration of the Blessed Virgiu." The  Rev. Father was eloquent in both discourses and explained why these things  were believed in by Catholics. His  subject on July 24th will be "The Confession" and why Catholics believe in  it.  The choir will consist of ten voices,  the best obtainable in the city, irrespective of creed. Messrs. Wright  and Porter will accompany the singing  with violin and cornet and from present appearances it is a safe prediction  that good music can be heard.  At last Sunday's services little Ruth  Miller deserves credit for having sung  the only solo rendered in the dedication of the first church in Boundary  Creek district.  Real Estate Sales.  The two lots on the corner of Copper  and Greenwood streets facing the Imperial hotel have been purchased by  Rendell & Co. from Hugh McEwan of  Grand Forks for $2,000. These lots are  among the best business building lots  in the city. They were eagerly sought  after but Mr. McEwan refused to sell  until the other day. He purchased  them some two years ago for $200.  Messrs. Rendell & Co. have also sold  the 50 foot lot on the Corner of Silver  and Greenwood street to the rear of the  Imperial hotel. The purchaser was  the Bealey Investment & Trust Co.  and the price paid was $750.

Not  only did the residents of the city turn  out to enjoy the programme of�� sports  provided but Midway, Grand Forks,  Carson, Nelson and the surrounding  district sent strong delegations to' rep*  resent them.  "All the events excepting the drilling.,  contest were pulled off at the baseball  grounds at the upper end of the city;  At ten o'clock the horse racing began.

Peacock decided to, jump the .track and  he  .was, caught   in the;woods, about a  mile  from   the   race    course.    Rowdy  fought  hard  for first place but ,a_-soft  place, in the track was   found   and '-he  retired . to .second   place with a .badly  sprained  fetlock.

Dirty Jim ridden.  by McClung won for his rider a case of  whiskey against a field of seven., A.  H. Harrison of the B. C. mine and Gerald T. Hodgson then gave a $10 purse  for a race among, the horses whq had  entered in the novelty "race- . This,  made the best horse race of the day.  The seven were fairly well matched  but.McClung on Dirty Jim again carried off the prize.  There were only two entries in the  slow race. The prize a case of whisky  was given by J. W. Nelson of, the Pioneer hotel.    E. J. Edwards entered on  a   long  eared animal  that  the people  generally call a mule.    Floyd  Vaughn  entered a ringbone, spavined, bucking  cay use.    Vaughn  was  placed  on   the  mule and  Edwards  on the cay use and  then  the  fun began.:   In 2   hours,   40  - minutes,   37%   seconds,  Edwards  succeeded  in bringing  his   mount to the  ��� winning ; post.. ���  Vaughn  fwo'rked ; the  mule for about 20  yards  and   neither  spur   nor , lash   would -.', move him any  .farther...;,,,...^t  -last   a man with   a long  ������; whip came.to Vaughn's assistance and  succeeded in driving  him   across   the  line, 4   hours,   35 minutes,   26 seconds  .after the   time; of  starting.    Edwards  got the whiskey.  A special, race for a purse of $10 between F. ��� McMann's Peacock and- R.'  Robinson's Buckskin was won by Peacock.  In the ladies race Mrs. McClung won  first place, Mrs. Winters second and  Mrs. Stioriquist third.- The race'was  hotly contested.  There was only a limited programme  of smalf - -sports: The men's 100 yard  dash was' won by Fred Clyde, John  Snodgrass being second.  The foot race for big boys  was  won  by Ted McArthur,'Barry being second.  Jack Galloway won the race for smail ���  boys with young Medill second.  BASEBALL.  The baseball match was won by  by Grand Forks. They played better  ballthroughout than the home team.,  The Greenwood team needs reorganization. Most of the players couldn't hit  a balooh with a barn door, while their  work in the .field was very coarse.  Hallett pitched good ball but was  "poorly supported. Smith did good  work both at the bat and in the field.  Kelly put up a good game at third.  The score was 14 to 13.  .    ,        THE  DRILLING CONTEST.  The drilling contest took place on  the bench near theriew Catholic church.  There were only two teams entered���; .  Dennis Clun.e and, J. Sullivan, and  Anderson and Peterson. . Clune and  Sullivan pounded the drill with their  old time vigor, and succeeded in driving 27.}4 inches through exceedingly  hard rock. Henderson and Peterson  did not change their drills as promptly ,  as their competitors, nor did the drills  appear tp cut well.    They drilled  18^  inches in the 15'minutes.'- ,  . NOTES.

If any evidence were necessary to  convince the electors that John McKane's candidature is of a most dishonest character, that evidence is  found in the election address which is  published in the Rossland Miner. Mr,.  McKane has received the endorsation  of Premier Turner and must be recognized as the government candidate  notwithstanding his hollow pretensions  of independence. Since he is the endorsed candidate of the ..government to '  be honest he should support the policy  of the government.  The Turner government refused to  remove the tax of five dollars on working miners. John McKane says he is  in favor of the removal of the tax.  The Turner government refused to  abolish the mortgage tax. John McKane says he is in favor of the removal of the mortgage tax.  The Turner government discouraged  the Truck Act. John McKane says he  is in favor of the Truck Act.  The Turner government refused to  grant Boundary Creek representation.  John McKane says he is in favor of  granting Boundary Creek representation.  John McKane is a government candidate attempting to win votes in the  garment of an oppositionist. His  position is illogical and dishonest. It  shows the character of the man. He  is without political stamina or political  honesty.    His election   address is suffi  cient to damn him with, every intelligent elector. He cannot run as a government supporter when his address, is  a continuous protest against the Turner  administration. Either McKane's ad-  dress is a libel on the Turner government or4McKane's. candidature js the  quintessence of hypocrisy. .This district is too important to be represented  by a political hermaphrodite. The candidate must be for the people .or for  Turner. He cannot run on the people's platform and in the interests of  Turner.  at work'erecting  poles   atid  stringing  the wife   between   Cascade : City   and  Grand' Forks.    He will   continue  the;  workto Greenwood; ' ! :'���  Should W. B. Aris carry out his  promise to run a line from Republic,  Greenwood will be1 blessed with two  telephone lines.  NELSON   &   VERNON   CO.  The   Nelson   &   Vernon   Telephone  Company has at last  decided  to  build  its own  line.    Heretofore  it  appeared  to be filled with the  idea  that   it was  the duty of the residents of Greenwood  to furnish   the   company   with a complete telephone   line.    The Greenwood  people  couldn't  see the matter in   the  same light and made  arrangements to  get telephone  connection  with Republic.    The Nelson &  Vernon  Company  is now prepared to build  a  line.    Mr.  Hodge the superintendent for the company visited Greenwood this week and  called  for   tenders  for   525   telephone  poles  to be   placed   along  the  wag-on  road   from   Spencers    to   Greenwood.  Tenders are also called for clearing  a  25 foot right of way covering the sam e  distance.    Mr. Hodge expects  to  have  his line in   operation   ih   less   than 60  days.  '   , ��� ���  A.

Hector McRae of the Eon-  don & Canadian Syndicate was also in  the 'city for a short time on Sunday;  He is expected to return in a few days.:  During Thos. McDonnell's visit to  Spokane he made satisfactory arrangements with the syndicate with reference to his property at Eholt creek.  :   Imagined He Was the Whole Celebration.  Tinas Martin, a siwash from the  reservation near Midway, visited the  city yesterday. Tinas ih the classic  Chinook is a diminutive'. Everything  went smoothly for Eittle Martin until  the baseball match was about over,  when Tinas got the idea that he was  the whole celebration and proceeded  to make a triumphal procession, of hinir  self and his cay use on the ball grounds.  Just as the procession gave indications  of being a success, Officers Gardom  and Eawder  scooped   the   siwash   in. !T��E?BO.OK-MSY   CREEK   TIMES,  c/L��awr-u!^wi��yA?ii;.t��f����sa=3:scrr:  GREENWOOD AND   DISTRICT,  ..

Don't forget the Corbin charter next  Saturday.  The Turner government has always  been an enemy of Boundary Creek.  James Martin is pledged to secure  ^representation for Boundary Creek. A  vote for him will speedily bring such  representation.  It is reported that Hon. J. H. Turner  is running as an independent candidate in Chilliwack. ...  James Dunsmuir the owner of Vancouver Island and the Turner government is a candidate in Comox.  The Turner government struggled  to give Heinze a land grant and a cash  subsidy and his own time to build.  The office where the government delegates were elected went through a  purifying process this week. Two  men and a hose did the work.  Mr. McKane should rise and explain  why Mr. Hodgson was not paid his expenses. Probably Mr; Eeamy could  throw some light on the subject.  It is currently reported that Gerald  T. Hodgson intends-sueing the government in the Small Debts Court. His  claim is $40, delegate's expenses to  Rossland.  To John McKane and Dr. Bowes the  people of Boundary Creel: are indebted  for their disfranchisement. They suggested to the Turner government the  advisability of-making Boundary Creek  a suburb of Rossland.  The Turner government is defeated  already. The opposition have the full  complement of candidates���thirty-  eight��� in the field while the government could only muster 24 candidates.  In the other constituencies the opposition are being opposed by independents. 6  It is difficult to decide who is entitled  to greater governmental recognition  Andrew Eeamy of Greenwood or W. B.  Cochrane of Vernon. They are both  lawyers or rather both maintain they  are. The one succeeded in dropping  (inadvertently) about 20 Boundary  Creek names off the list and the other  acted as delegate to a government convention after being appointed a returning officer.  Hon. J. H. Turner will not visit  Boundary Creek district. Other portions of the province requires his attention ; besides Hon. J. H. Turner has a  meek servant in the person of John  McKane. McKane must earn his  money and consequently he is compelled to face the dangers of traveling by  stages in a foreign land. Turner isn't  going to be inconvenienced by the  gerrymander of Boundary Creek.  A unique inquiry comes from Revelstoke to a gentleman in Greenwood.  The seeker of information states that  he had noticed the Greenwood gentleman's advertisement in The Boundary Creek Times and he would be  pleased to learn if tomatoes and melons will ripen here, also if one could  do well with a tailor's small stock.

A correspondent writes to The  Times that coarse free gold yielding 10  to 15 cents to the pan had just been  discovered on Baker ,��� creek about one  mile across the International boundary  line from. Sidley, P. O. The discovery  caused considerable excitement in that,  vicinity and Baker creek has been  staked up to the line. At the time of  writing ho prospecting had been done  on. the British side of the line. The  discovery was made by Henry Vinson  an old timer in those parts. He is  making sluice boxes tb start washing.  The gold was seen by the correspondent and he states that the indications  for good diggings are the best he has  ever seen.  The gold is found ih a very peculiar  position. It is in the bed of the creek.  There is first a stratum of gravel, than  a foot of clay and underneath the clay  is more gravel. In the top of this  under stratum of gravel the gold has  been found. How far it goes down has  not yet been determined owing to the  water.  Ten years ago two men named Rup-  pert and McPhee took out $10 a day  for about two months on this same  creek where it empties into Rock creek  but when they came to the clay and  found nothing in it they never thought  of going below. It appears that there  must have been two washes. At the  time of writing only three locations  were; made on the American side.  , There is about four miles of the Baker  creek , in Canadian territory., It has  been worked over here and there for'  surface diggings but going below the  clay is a new departure. The creek  goes nearly dry in the fall but at pres- ���  ent there is plenty of water.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The regular meeting of the City  Council was held in the Courthouse On  Monday evening. Mayor Wood pre-  'sided and the following aldermen were  present: Aid. Galloway, Kerr, Paton,  Barrett and Phelan.  A. Campbell Reddie, Deputy Provincial Secretary, informed the council  that the Greenwood hospital account  of $30 for the care of an indigent sick  miner had been accepted b3'" the government and that the government  agent would pay the same.  Aid. Barrett introduced the Ward'  By-Eaw. It divides the city into East  and West wards, Copper street being  the boundary between the two wards.  The B)r-Eaw was passed through its  several stages and now stands for final  reading.  Aid. Galloway pointed out the importance of organizing a volunteer fire  department under the By-Eaw, passed  by the council and it was decided to  call a public meeting on Monday evening. Aid. Barrett offered the use of  his'hall for the meeting and the offer  was-accepted.  Isaac Syme, of Mayville, North Dakota, one of the shareholders in the  Winnipeg mine, is visiting- the district.
