His Worship Mayor Wood presided and  all the members were present. Messrs.  Naden   and  McRae,  two  of  the fire-  . Wardens, were present and discussed  fire protection with the council. Mr.  Naden stated that there were now  about ten chemical fire extinguishers  in the city, and they considered it wise  , to ask the owners to give them a thorough test; They would ask the city to  make good the cost of re-filling the extinguishers. The chemicals to re-fill  an extinguisher cost about 30 cents. If  the extinguishers prove a success the  city might procure some to augment  those held by private persons. Mr.  Naden also sugg-ested that the council  assume control of fire matters, thus relieving the fire wardens of the responsibility. Y   ,  Aid. Phelan would regret to see the  management of the fire department in  different hands from the present. He  was in favor of the test suggested by  Mr. Naden.  Aid. G-alloway considered the hand  chemicals a very nice toy^ but thought  them of little value in fighting fires.  He was hi favor of giving them a thorough test. If they prove of any use he  would be in favor of the city securing  some. The residents of Greenwood  were living in a fool's paradise as fat-  as fire is concerned. He would like to  see the volunteer brigade kept up and  the council give a plan of fire protection their earliest and serious consideration.  After further discussion in which  Mr. McRae, His Worship the Mayor,  and 'several of ihe aldermen took part,  'a committee of Aid. Barrett, Parry  and G-alloway were appointed to co-operate with the fire-wardens in securing  the test.    Mr. McRae also  urg-ed that  c  the council provide some suitable building in which to store the buckets, etc.,  belonging* to the volunteer department.  The counpil promised to attend to the  matter immediately.  Aid. Phelan was granted leave to  introduce a Temporary L/Oan By-law.  It provides for the borrowing- of not  .more than $1,000, until the revenue for  the year is collected. It was read a  first and. second time, considered in  committee, and read a third time.  The council then adjourned.  A School Teacher.  In response to an advertisement  which appeared in one of the coast  papers, the trustees of the Greenwood  public school have secured only one  application for teacher. The applicant is Mr. Keith who holds a first class  New Brunswick certificate. Not having a provincial certificate the trustees  have petitioned the superintendent of  education to grant him'a temporary  certificate until the midsummer examination.s.  A grand   ball   and   banquet   will   be  given at   the Lancashire   House, Midway, early next week.    The table will  be supplied with all the delicacies that  can be imported.

The petitions in charge of Col; Topping are wonderful productions. If  Bourinot is an authority on parliamentary procedure they will never be received by the Dominion House, for  they are couched in language that  abuses other railway companies and  reflects upon the action of the Dominion government last session. After  asking the people to view with great  indignation the conduct of the V. V. &  $. company, arid with alarm the cori-  ductQof the C.P.R., and with admiration the conduct of unselfish, patriotic  F. Auguste  Heinze,  the  petition  sets  ������ forth :".,  That one of the most extensive and  valuable mineral districts in Canada,  including the Kettle River, Boundary  Creek and Lower Okanagan sections,  was now lying idle and unproductive,  owing to the want of trasportation facilities ; that Mr. Heinze had in 1896  obtained a charter to build through  this country ; that he had already completed 23 miles of this line between  Robson and Trail; that he had expended over a million dollars in building this and a smelter at Trail, and  that it was his intention to build other  smelters in the lower country ; that  owing to the opposition of a rival company (the V., V. & .E>.) he had been unable to obtain assistance from the Dominion government last session, and  that a determined effort was now being  made by the C.P.R. to crush out his  scheme ; and urging that every effort  should be given to enable Mr. Heinze  to carry on the construction of the line  at once.  The petition addressed  to  the  Provincial legislature asks for  sympathy,  and the one addressed to the Dominion  '������'//���'  parliament asks that " a liberal subsidy should be granted at the earliest  possible moment to the Columbia &:  Western Railway Company, to enable  them to proceed with and complete the  said Trail-Penticton railway."  fasliington's Birthday, Feb. 22.  -Q^0>=^-  i���  The World's Depression,  Its Cause and Cure*  THE   REV.

Mayor Wood and the board of Aldermen have been invited by Mr. Speaker  Higgins to be present at the opening  of the provincial legislature.  Mr. Rogers, who is connected with  the Ingersoll-Sergeaht company, came  over from Rossland last week with a  view to straig-htening" out matters in  connection with the machinery which  his company were to deliver to the  Brandon & Golden Crown Co.  Col. Topping- left for Grand Forks on  Thursday morning-, where a public  meeting" was probably called to discuss  railway matters. Col. Topping- was  greatly impressed with the mining-  possibilities of this district, and he intends returning- to make investments.  Mr. T. P. Mclntyre, travelling representative for Ashdown, the well  known Winnipeg- hardware firm, visited Greenwood this week. In order to  meet the increasing" trade of the district, the Russell Hardware Company  ordered two carloads from him.

The Vancouver World is the  authority for the statement that the  negotiations   of   the   Victoria,   Vancouver  &  Eastern;   Railway Company   for   the  coiistruction of a railway from Pentic-;  ton   to  Boundary   Creek   district, are  much further advanced than is  gener-  i ally  known.    Representatives of  this  company have  been urging  upon  the  provincial government to name the V.  V. & E. as the company entitled to-the  cash subsidy for a road from Penticton  to Boundary Creek and  it  is  reported  that the   government   are   inclined to  look favorably on the proposition.  The World also states::. '��� .  "It is currently reported in  Ottawa;,  Montreal, Toronto and  elsewhere that  negotiations  are  now in an  advanced  stage,   between  Mr.  Heinze and well  known    eastern    capitalists   who   are  largely interested in mining and other  schemes in   this  province,  for  the acquirement   of   all the   interests    that  gentleman  has  in  Kootenay j such^as  railways, smelters and  mines.    There  is still a considerable  difference in the  price placed .by Mr.   Heinze  upon his  property  and  that   which   buyers are  willing to pay therefor ;  but  the hope  is strong, that in a day or  two, at  the  furtherest,    both   parties   will  ! have  reached that stage in their negotiations  when a final decision will be made and  the documents signed.    These completed, it/is then certain that active operations will be begun upon the  construction of  the  line  from Penticton eastwards, so that the waters of the Columbia river and  of'Okanagan   lake  will  be connected- inside  of  a  year   and a  half from the time of .starting, and the  parties   interested are  willing to  give  undoubted security to this effect.    It is  known that  the  Federal  government,  as well as that at Victoria, are working  in   union   in   this   matter,   each being  actuated by the desire of  affording an  outlet for what   is believed  to  be   the  richest quartz  mining  section   of  the  whole province.    The people of southern   Kootenay and Yale  district,   who  have been clamoring so long-, and justljr  so, for  railway  facilities,   can rest assured  that  their  desires  are  nearing  fulfilment.    Those  who ,are   about  to  acquire    Mr.   Heinze's   interests    are  known to be not onl}' wealthy, but experienced in railway  construction and  other great contracting projects."  Railway Visitors.  Among- the interested spectators at  the railway meeting- on Wednesday  evening were Mr. G. H. Martin, auditor of the Spokane Falls & Northern  Railway and C. G. Dixon, general  ag-ent for the Great Northern Railway.  Both have their offices in Spokane.  Mr. Dixon visited Greenwood in February last, and as*��� many car loads of  freight for the district come over his  line from the coast and eastern wholesalers, his present visit was-simply  to keep himself in touch with shippers  and to do everything in the way of expediting- freight that comes over his  line.  Mr. Martin's was also a business  trip and he interviewed the business  men in the city with a view to straightening out any little difficulties that  cropped up during the year. Both expressed their surprise at the rapid  growth and substantial appearance of  Greenwood. They left for Spokane  Friday morning.  R OSS LAND.  Greenwood.  :W  LIMITED    LIABILITY.

Topping arrived in Greenwood  on Tuesday to get signatures to a petition in favor of the Columbia & Western railrbad. Col. Topping came down  from Vernon, having visited Fairview,  Camp McKinney, Midway and other  points. When he reached Greenwood  he had about seventy-five signatures  to the petition and when he left Greenwood he had the .same number of signatures. The most plausible arguments used by the Colonel could not  convince the people of Boundary Creek  district that it would be in the public  interests to sign the petition.  Immediately upon Col. Topping's  arrival, it was decided that in fairness  to the Columbia & Western Company  and to the people of the, district a pub-  lic meeting should be called to give  Col. Topping ariu opportunity to place  his views before the public. Consequently a meeting- was held in Reudell  & Go's, hall on Wednesday evening.  So great was the interest taken in the  question   that   the- hall   was  packed.  Anaconda,  Boundary  Falls,  Midway,  the surrounding camps, were represented   as   well  as Greenwood;    His Worship-  Mayor. Wood,  was  voted  to the  chair.    He "expressed  his pleasure  at  seeing such a. representative gathering  and to see so*/,many present  from outside the city.    It was a healthy sign to  see so   much   interest  taken in an important matter and if the people would  work unitedly they  would  have  great  influence.    The meeting was called to  get   an   expression   of   public  opinion  regarding- the advisability of'Signing a  petition asking for further   aid  for the  Heinze road.    A representative  of the  Columbia   &   Western   Company   was  present.    He was pleased to.'.meet Col.  Topping and hoped he would  go  back  to  Trail   having    a   good   opinion   of  Greenwood even if he  would  find that  the people could not agree with him on  the   railway    situation.    This   was   a  business proposition and should be considered in a businesslike wa}-:.    Personally- he could not see that it was a difficult matter for the people of Boundary  Creek to arrive   at   a  decision.    What  we want is competitive railway and we  should do everything to   assist  Corbin  in   getting   a   charter ( applause )    He  failed   to   see what  claim   Mr. Heinze  had on the people  of Boundary Creek.  (Hear, hear. )    He never built an   inch  of road for us.    He does not  think Mr.  Heinze ever intended   to   build a road.  He boasted   abptit how' he   ' Aim flammed ' the Victoria governmet, but, said ' j  Mayor   Wood,    don't   let   him     'dim  flam' us."-    (Iyoud  applause.")  Aid. Galloway, who was called upon,  suggested that Col. Topping be given  an opportunity to express his views.  Col. Topping- expressed his desire to  address the meeting later in the evening.  Aid. Galloway then proceeded with  his remarks : The railway question, he  said, was one in which the people of  Boundary Creek district took ��� a keen  interest. He doubted'if "Mr. Heinze intended to build. He first asked for a  charter only, then a land grant, then a,  cash subsidy, and now he is asking for  another cash subsidy,   and   if  he  gets  this he will simply be in a  position to  sell out at a higher figure. (Hear, hear.)  He had hof aithin JMr., Heinze  or  his  railway schemes.    (Hear,   hear.)    The  people had plenty  of promises  but no  earnest of his   bona  fide intentions to,  build a road and he believed the public  would  emphatically  declare that they  will not help him to get further  subsi-W  dies.    He understood  Mr.   Heinze was  also asking for an extension of time to  complete the road.    Why should he be  granted   further, time ?.���." (Hear, hear,)  The  people   had   no guarantee that  Heinze would build ?    That  he  would' j  not sell out to the C. P. R. or any other j  company.    Aid.   Galloway   moved  the  following resolution:  "Whereas a> representative of the  Columbia & Western Railway Go. is in  the district, asking for signatures to a  | petition praying the Dominion government to grant further aid to the Columbia & ^Western Ry. Co. ; and  Whereas the Columbia & Western  Ry. Co. has been granted enormous  land grants by the Provincial legislature to assist it in building a railway  between Trail and Penticton ;   and  Whereas, in lieu of a land grant for  a railway from Penticton to Boundary  Greek a cash subsidy,: was granted by  the Provincial legislature���'���; and  Whereas, notwithstanding the fact  that the Colunibiav& Western Railway  Co. voluntarily placed itself under  bonds to live up to the time limit in the  Columbia & Western Subsidy Act, it  has made no bona fide effort to construct the road from Trail to Penticton :  Be it therefore Re;solved that, in  the opinion of this meeting-, no signatures from the people of Boundary  Creek district be attached to the petition presented by the representative of  the Columbia & Western Ry. Cq.:  Aid. James Kerr seconded the resolution.  Col. Topping was again called upon  to express his views but declined to do  so.   ������ ��� , ::  Mr. A. Iveamy in response to calls  from the audience addressed  the meet-.  . in��-.   - ���     ���      '  He   stated  that  the   question  was a  vital and important one to the district.  All'he had in the world was in Boundary Creek district. It was one of those  questions where we ought to hasten  slowly.. He thought it better if a dozen  railways would come and he considered  that those who had matters cut and  dried should express their views. Evidently the resolutions were cut and  dried.  Aid. Galloway said no effort had  been made to have things cut and  dried. He desired an untrammelled  expression of opinion from   the public. '.  Mr. Glaze of Midwa3r thanked the  meeting for calling upon him'but he  was not posted on the railway situation.  Mr. C.J. McArthur'said the'railwa3r  topic was new to him also. He could  not say what would be the actual cost  of .constructing a railway but he considered the resolution introduced bv  Mr. Galloway a fair one. He beliaved  in supporting the road that could be  secured at the least cost to the public.  (Hear, hear.) He would like to cast  his vote against giving public money  or   hand  the heritage of the   people, to  I  any railway corporation. (Applause.)  He thought the province had given  away land that our children would require 20 years from to-day. (Applause.)  Aid. Phelan considered that a precedent was being established at this  meeting. He understood the meeting  was called for the purpose of listening  to the views of a representative of a  railway company, but apparently the  public had gathered for the purpose of  giving that representative the benefit  of their views. (Hear, hear.) ' It appeared to him with all due regard to  Col. Topping that he should tell the  public who he" is, what he is here for,  and who he is representing. They  could not intelligently vote on the resolution until thejr heard both sides of  the case. '  At the request of Aid. Kerr, Col. Topping read his petitions.  Maj'or Wood pointed out that  if  the  people signed this petition they  would  be expressing  their disapprobation of  the C. P. R. to whom Mr. Heinze would  probably  sell   and who  would build a  railway into the district.    (Hear, hear.)  Mr.   F.   Keffer,   M.   E.,   Anaconda,  agreed  with  Mr.   McArthur   that   we  should support the road that  could   be  secured at the least cost to  the public.  He believed there   is   sufficient ore in  the district to justify any railway coming   here   without   public   assistance.  (Hear, hear.)    He was iu  favor of the  resolution,    (Applause.)  Col.   Topping   then    addressed   the  meeting. He said it was indeed a pleasant thing to face a meeting thoroughly  hostile,   fearfully  hostile.      He  maintained that Mr. Heinze had  shown an  earnest  of  his  intention  to   build   to  Boundary Creek bv building  23   miles  of railway from Trail to Robsoh.. The  hand of the C.P.R. was behind  the V.,  ' V. & E." at  Ottawa  last  session   and  they succeeded in defeating Mr. Heinze  in his efforts to  secure   a   subsidy.    A  strong reason why a subsidy should be  given was that  the  people  of   British  Columbia paid over $2,000,000 annually  into the Dominion treasury and received back less than  $50,000  in  appropriations. The fight was now one between  Heinze and  the  C.P.R.     The  C.P.R.  was a monopoly, iio riiore cruel one ex- -  isted.    If the C.P.R.   was supported it  would  crush  any  other  road that attempted to get   into  this  district.    He  had no quarrel  with  Mr.   Corbin ; he  was entitled to his charter (hear, hear).  The Columbia & Western was not antagonistic   to  Mr.   Corbin.    Col.   Topping  said  the   Columbia   &   Western  would be an all-Canadian road.    If the  Dominion government grants it a subsidy it could  secure  control   of  rates.  The C.P.R. was forced, under  the conditions   imposed   in   the  Crow's Nest  Railway Act, to lay down coke in Kootenay   points  for  $11   a   ton���-half the  present cost.    He  had   assurance   that  Mr. Heinze intends to build if-granted  a subsidy.    Mr. Heinze was now fighting the C.P.R.,  and   when   he  became  antagonistic he will tight to the bitter  end.  ���Mr.   Glaze   asked    if   Col.   Topping  could give any g-uarantee that   Heinze M.  m-  ' fk  ���*9  hit  5'v  fir  fa  &������..  ���!���  I  p-i-  I  �����6  I  I''  1  ':g;  1-'  ��  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  i&wAi^tBliw  if  pis  m  will commence immediate construction  if granted a subsidy'?'.  Col. topping replied that Mr. Heinze  had assured him that he would.  Mr. Alex. Wallace stated-th at the  people of Boundary Creek had heard of  Mr. Heinze before. He criticized Mr.  Eeamy for the stand he took. The  people of Boundary Creek were a long-  suffering humanity. He would like to  see Mr. Heinze visit this district���the  Commander-in-chief of the concern  (laughter)���but he sends only his Colonel : that was good enough for Boundary Creek. The Columbia & Western  -was a gigantic humbug- (hear" hear.)  The people should oppose a subsidy to  any such boodling scheme. If Heinze  had the interests of this district at  heart, he could surely find some time  outside of that occupied with litigation  in Montana and lob by in g at Ottawa, to  visit the district (Hear, hear). The  people of Boundary Creek were not  without influence: Some four years  ago a Provincial cabinet minister  thought they were not worth considering, but that powerful cabinet minister  was defeated, and by the votes of the  people of Boundary Creek (Applause).  Col. Heinze���no, General Heinze���was  trying to pull the wool over the peo-,  pie's eyes, and he had partly succeeded.  He wasonly a prospector, but he was  tired of being humbugged and therefore wished to give expression to his  opinions.   (Applause).  Mayor  Wood  was  not  surprised   at  Mr. Wallace's strong words, as he knew,  prospectors  had  endured  great  hard- 0  ships in the district. ���  Mr. Ross  expressed   his  pleasure at  seeing  the   ladies  present.    It   was  a  healthy sign to see them take an interest  in   public   matters.    He  felt   sure  that they   were   not   disappointed because Col. Topping had furnished them  an   interesting  spectacle   in his wrestling with the facts in  connection with  the Columbia & Western Railway.    He  felt  sure  they  would  agree with him  that the facts .'got the worst of  it.    To  thoroughly understand the position of  the  Columbia &   Western   Railwa3r  it  would be necessary  to  go  back to the  time when Mr. Heinze who was then a  modest man went to Victoria for a bare  charter.    He asked for a  charter  only  and public^ stated that all he  wanted  was a   right to build   a   railway   into  Boundary Creek  district  in order that  he might secure the ores for his smelter   at  Trail.    Eess  than   two  months  afterwards he  was  again   in. Victoria  and after dining members of the  government, the Eieutenant-governor and  members of the house,   he  found it an  easy matter  to  get  something and he  asked for something.    A bill was introduced    by     the    Chief-Commissioner  * granting Heinze 20,000 acres a mile for  his   road.    The  bill    was    railroaded  through the house and Heinze  secured  his  land  grant.    Col.   Topping denies  that Heinze said  he  had  "Aim flammed" the government.    All  Mr. Ross  would sa3r was  that  Mr. Heinze could  truthful^ say that  he had "flim flammed "    the  goverment.    (Hear, hear.)  Although the Columbia & Western sub-  sid>r act Was passed the consciences of  some of the legislators  troubled them  and as a balm they had inserted in the  act a clause that compelled Mr. Heinze  to put up  a deposit  of $50,000 that he  would  build the  entire  road between  Penticton and  Trail by   1900.    He did  not intend   to  go   into   particulars  regarding this bond.    He did  not intend  to dwell   on   the  fact that Heinze succeeded   in   inducing the then   Lieutenant-Governor  of   this   province  to become a director  of his road���a lieutenant-governor who was supposed to  act  in a judicial capacit3r in a dozen different ways mentioned in the subsidy act.  Suffice   it  to   .say that Mr. Heinze did  put up the bond  and that   it   is a  first  mortgage   bond  on   the   road alread3r  built.    L,ast session Mr. Heinze again  haunted the legislature halls at Victoria and a bill was introduced whose  real object was to give Heinze a cash  subsidy of $4000 a mile in addition to  his land grant. But we were fortunate  in having ih the house men who could  not be purchased with wine suppers,  men'who could not be ''flini flammed,"  men who asserted their independence  for the nonce and the bill was altered  so that for the portion of the road  between Penticton and Bounda^ Creek  Mr. Heinze would have to accept either  the land grant or the subsidy and if he  wished the cash subsidy he must begin  August  next.    Mr. Heinze  scene  of  his opera-  work    by  then changed the  tions from Victoria to Ottawa but he  there found people who were engaged  in the same discreditable business as  himself and he was defeated in his  efforts to secure a subsidy. Mr. Ross  claimed that it was a piece of cool presumption for a representative of Mr.  Heinze to ask the people of Boundary  Creek to denounce the V. V. & E. Co.,  because they were doing what he had  already done.  The greed for subsidy grew upon  Mr. Heinze and he spent so much time  in attempting to secure public property  that he neglected to watch his rivals. c  He finds himself and his railway shut  in by a more powerful company. He  finds that in order to save his $50,000  bond he must complete nearly 200, miles  of railroad within two years and he  finds that in order to earn his cash subsidy he must begin active and continuous work by /August next. Finding  himself in this tight hole he asks the  people of Boundary Creek to help him  to get more money in order that he can  more easily live up to his obligations.  (Hear, hear.) Col. Topping told us  that a reason why a subsidy should be  granted was because the province paid  over $2,000,000 into the Dominion treasury and received less than $50,000 in  appropriations. N^ever was there more  absurd contention. He asserts that the  people of this province would be recompensed for the money paid into the  Dominion treasury by giving a fat subsidy to a greedy railway promo tor.  (Applause.)  Col. Topping is an astute politician  and he knows that discretion is the better part of valor. He finds here a  strong feeling in favor of Corbin and  gives vent but to little sentimental  twaddle about an all-Canadian road;  but at Vernon he found a more sympa-  theric audience against an American  road. Mr. Ross held that there was  danger in signing the Topping petitions ; that they would be used in the  Dominion house against the Corbin  road. The people in the district had  signed petitions in favor of Corbin.  Were the3' going to stultify themselves  now? Col. Topping also stated that  Heinze had sunk his money in British  Columbia investments, but what were ^  the facts ? After he failed to sell to the  C.P.R, Mr. Heinze prepared a prospectus and went to New York and that  was a wonderful prospectus. Either  Mr. Heinze lied in the prospectus or  the government of this province has  pledged itself to g-ive Heinze a cash  subsidy in addition to the land grant;  either Mr. Heinze lied in the prospectus  or Col. Topping is not telling us what  is true when he sa3's Heinze lost money.  In this prospectus Mr. Heinze states  that the Trail smelter cost over $400,-  000 and the yearly dividends was over  $100,000. Will any one say that 25 per  cent, is not a good yearly profit?  (Hear, hear.) If Mr. Heinze is telling  the truth in the prospectus the position  is simply this : Mr. Heinze will get  from the public a provincial subsidy of  $4000 a mile, a Dominion subsidy of  $8000 a mile and 20,000 acres of land  per niile. The land is surely worth  25 cents per acre and this would give  him $17,000 a mile: more than would  build the road. Why should the people  of Boundary  Creek  support  any Tail-  way promoter in filching the public to  this extent ?.-'. Mr. Ross asked Col. Topping on the street if the people had any  guarantee that if successful   in   securing the Dominion  subsidy Mr. Heinze  would not sell to the, C.P-.R-,  and Col.  Topping reported that  there  was  no  guarantee.    The  position   was simply  this, that the people were asked to support Mr. Heinze in securing a cash subsidy iu order that he would beih a position  to  demand   more   for   his   road.  (Hear, hear.)    We have taken a decid-  ed.step, we have to the number of over  700 signed a petition in   favor  of  Cor-  bin's road.    In order to satisfy himself  that Mr. Corbin was honest  in  his intentions Mr. Ross  took  the  liberty to  write Mr.  Corbin and  in his reply Mr.  Corbin stated that " in my opinion  the  time has come when it is not necessary  that the government should give away  anymore money or  land in this direction (to  encourage railway   construction ) and I do  not   intend to   ask   for  either."    (Applause)    That    commits  Mr.     Corbin.    (Hear, .,.'���.' hear.)      Why  should one road be granted a 'subsidy  when the promoter of another road says  he can build without a subsidy.    (Hear,  hear. ) '.It is time the people of Boundary Creek should cease being the sucker for the tempting bait of the subsidy  hunter, it is time they had more faith  in,.tfiemselves- and   in  the   justice  of  their cause, it is time they stood up for  honest    railway   legislation   and   denounced  the   schemes   of     designing  chartermongers.    It is a gross piece of  presumption for Col. Topping  to  ask  people of Boundary Creek to sign such  petitions.    (Applause.)  Col. Topping replied briefly. He  said the situation was plain. It was  simply a fight between Mr. Heinze and  the C. P. R.  Mr. Eeamy suggested that if Mr.  Ross had delivered his indictment  earlier in the evening- the question  would then have been settled without  further discussion.        o     .   ��� ���  The resolution was then put. Every  voice in the audience shouted "aye."  excepting one. It's only fair to say  that that one was   not  Col. Topping's.  Mr. J. McNicol of Midway then moved the following resolution which was  seconded by Mr. J. C. McArthur and  carried without a dissenting voice :  Whereas the Kettle River Valley  Railway ���  Co. Is making- application to the Dominion -Par-'"  , liametit for a charter to build  a railway  into  Boundary Creek district ; and  Whereas the Company is asking-for no public  aid and has expressed its intention of beginning- actual construction immediately upon the  charter being-granted :  Be it therefore Resolved, that residents of  Boundar\r Creek district urge upon the Dominion parliament to grant said charter to the  Kettle River Valley Rail way Comparij".  Votes of thanks to Col. Topping and  the chairman were then carried.  Col. Topping hoped the people appreciated the gravity of the position the3r  had taken. Mr. Heinze is a strong  "friend or a strong enemy. He is going to build into this district and the  chances are he will reciprocate for  this.  Mr. Ross strongly objected to Col.  Topping's remarks. He was not entitled to that consideration shown him  during the meeting. It was a deliberate attempt to bulldoze the people into  favoring Mr. Heinze's schemes. He  hoped the people would not be influenced b3r threats of an emissar3r from Mr.  Heinze who attempted to frighten them  into signing the petition.    (Applause.)  Col. Topping replied that he did not  intend his remarks as a threat.  A voice "that sounded very much  like one," (hear, hear.)  Mr. Ross hoped that it would be made  known in the parliament of Canada  that because the people of Greenwood  had opposed Mr. Heinze in the public  interest, Mr. Heinze's representative  speaking for him had stated in a public meeting that Mr. Heinze would  make it hot for Greenwood if he gets a  chance.    (Applause.)  The meeting then adjourned.  1  S  i m  i ;���(?  1.   ��� r",J.  ! ,fi'i  ? ift  f-'fi  ���ill  ��� \A  i-i  [V, THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES/  f��  ��� ,r  ?��� ��� ��  KETTLE   RIVER  MINING   DIVISION.  ���&  Record  of Mineral  Locations for  the  Week  Ending January 25th, 1898.

Owns the " Golden Grown "mineral claim, situated in Wellington camp, Yale District, B,C,  C   P. R. SURVEY.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company have their surveyors ih the field.  A rumor to that   effect was published  two weeks ago and the rumor was confirmed  by  the  appearance  in   Greenwood  of  a  survey  party  of  eighteen  men in charge of Mr. E. M. Rice.    The  party came from Rossland on   Sunday  and   Monday ; after purchasing their  supplies in Greenwood started on Tuesday for Eholt creek where the  work of  surveying   will  begin.    Mr.   Rice  intends working both ways  from Greenwood and will follow pretty closely the  survey made by  Mr.  Sullivan for  the  Columbia  &  Western   Railway  Company last fall.    The fact that a  large  force of  men  are  in   the field shows a  bona fide intention on the part  of  the  big company to prosecute the  work  of  constructing  a  road  into the district.  It  also  shows that the  surest way of  stirring any  railway  company to discard the system of  begging from governments while a district is waiting for  railway connection  is   to have a rival  company in   the   field  ready  to  build  without    government    alms.    If    Mr.  Corbin succeeds in getting his charter,  there Svill   be   an   interesting  race between his company and the C. P. R. to  reach Bbundarj' Creek first.    The people  of  Boundary   Creek  district   will  watch the race with  considerable self-  interest.    The  earl}--  construction of a  railway into  the  district  is assured if  Mr. Corbin succeeds in getting a charter.    If  the Dominion  parliament denies him   a charter,   the C. P. R. may  take its time in constructing the  road.  Real  Estate   Investments.  Among the visitors to Greenwood  this week was Mr. J. E. Sherrin, of  London, England. He represents an  English syndicate who are looking for  real estate investments throughout the  province. Mr. Sherrin has been in  Rossland for several months and spent  a few days last week in Grand Forks.  He left for Midway and other western  points on Thursday. He reports to his  company and as he has been very favorably impressed with Greenwood, in  all probabilit/y he will make several  investments when he returns.
