Dr. Reddy and Mr. Hickey went up  to Camp McKinney oh Monday to look  after their many valuable mining- interest in that camp. '  ,; The reference to the Camp McKinney Gold Mining- company, which appeared in the Tinies last week, was  not quite accurate.' The block of  shares which were placed on the market were not treasury but promoters'  shares/These were speedily purchased  at 1)4 cents., The company is now  fully organized and the,treasury stock  has been placed on the, market at five  cents and  is  finding many,'purchasers  : at this price.  Mr. Young, the business manager of  the ' Spokesman-Review, spent several  .'days'in the district last week. He is  'one of the incorporators of the Crescent Gold Mining company, and isas-  sociated with/,-Harry- SJiallenberger in  the ownership of the Lake and other  Skylark camp , properties. Mr. Young  is heavily interested in ..mining- .ventures in different districts, but heis so  impressed withthe wonderful resources  o'f Boundary--Creek - that he has decided to give the.district greater attention in the future.  Camp McKinney was' well represented in Greenwood Sundaj* and Monday.  A Camp McKinney.-party would not  be complete without Hugh Cameron,  the popular proprietor of: the Cahip  ��� McKinney hotel. He arrived in the  city on Sunday afternoon and was accompanied by: his brother, Malcolm  McQuaig.of Rock Creek, and his attorney, J. P. McLeod of Midway. Dr.  sJ.F.. Reddy-and P.J. Hickey, the'/well  knpwn:miningjmen, arrived from Spokane the same day. The object of the  visit was to make the final payment on  account of the bond which the latter  held on the famous Fontenoy property.  The .payment was made and the  Fontenoy passed into the hands, of the  the Fontenoy Gold Mining and Milling company, recently organized by  Dr. J. F. Reddy and others.  The Fontenoy is, a new provincial  "company and was registered at Victoria last week.:- The capital is one  million, dollars. , It starts business  backed up by the Dunsmuirs' millions.  Mr. James Ditnsmuir has secured the  controlling interest in the company.  He has associated with him the Hon.  C. E. Pooley and B. J. Perry, while P.  J. Hickey,' Dr. Reddy, J. D.1 Farrell  andC. P. Chamberlain retain interests.  The fact that Mr. Ditnsmuir has decided to take hold of the Fontenoy  speaks volunins for the merits of the  property. Mr. Dunsmuir has always  been chary about gold mining speculations, and outside of the Noble Five,  in which he is heavily interested, he  has made but few investments in gold  mines. He has taken hold of the  Fontenoy with a vim, however, and  intends to speedily prove that Hugh  Cameron's prognostications relative to  the hidden wealth of. the Fontenoy  were correct. A plant has been ordered  and will be taken to the mine as  speedily as possible. Development  work will be pushed vigorously.  A. dial was closed in this city during-  the past week, for the bonding of a  group of three claims, the Yankee Boy,  Yankee Girl and Bell on Hardy mountain, to a syndicate of Spokane and  eastern capitalists, represented by  Harry White of the Citv   of  Paris and  OF EVERY  DESCRIPTION.  ^nwH??!nmn!?nfn?n??in???i?!??!fmHi??^?n?n?HiHn??H!n????t??i??HiH!H???H?n?f!??n?!??!n]^  Always on hand, a full line of  Ledgers, Journals, Cash Books,  Record Books, Memo's, Diaries,  Hotel Registers, etc,  ��%      5%      ��&  SMITH' &   McRAE,  Books, Stationery, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GF2ERNIWOOD,     B.C.  ^J^  I Eiucoln ; the sum named in the bond  j - ranging between 520,000 and 530,000.  j The deal, we understand, beiiig worked  j up by W.

The properties  were located several years ago by Lee  Merson iind'.'W. P. McGregor who have  held and worked them since, doing a  considerable amount of work and  showing up a large amount of good  ore. A shaft has been sunk 35 feet on  the ledge and shows: in the bottom  over two feet of ore running S6S in  gold, o'/i ounces silver and a slight  trace of copper. Beside the shaft a  tunnel has been driven 33 feet to tap  the lead and at the present writing has  just reached it, although no crosscut-  ting has been done as yet.���Grand  Forks Miner.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  Two   Aldermen    Resign���Another   Telephone  Franchise.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held on Monday evening.  Mayor Hardy presided and Aldermen  Naden, Galloway and Sutherland were  in their seats.   .-'���  Messrs. C. A. Stone and J. B. Donald  of the Columbia Telephone company  were present. Mr. Stone briefly addressed the council. He stated that his  company , were anxious to put ;in a  local system to connect with their  .main line. They had 225 miles of wire  on the American side and had given  contracts for erecting poles and stringing wires between Cascade and Camp  McKinney. They would undertake to  have the system in operation by July  1st. Mr. Stone answered many questions regarding the���plans pf. his,company. He assured the council that  the rate for 'phones in the city would  not be more than S2 for residences and  S3 for business houses. The instruments will be placed free of charge.  Alderman Galloway gave notice that  at the next meeting he would introduce a Columbia Telephone company  right of way by-law.  Alderman Galloway pointed out  that a map furnished by the Boundary  Creek Telegraph and Telephone company showed that this company intended usingboth sides of every street  and placing poles at every corner.  The map was referred back to the  company for explanation.  The resignations of Aldermen Campbell and Nelson were received.  0  Alderman Campbell, who was present, explained that he had transferred  his property and was no longer qualified.  ��� Mayor Hardy stated that Alderman  Nelson had been notified that proceedings had been taken to unseat  him, and consequently he decided to  resign. Both resignations were accepted. ��  Alderman Naden.inquired about the  North ward, and Mayor Hardy stated  that he understood Alderman Phelan  was going to hand in his resignation.  He had intimated as much to the  mayor. The mayor had told Alderman Phelan ihat if he was in doubt as  to the legality of his appointment he  had better resign.  Alderman Galloway���He ought to  come here or resign. His course is not  fair to the city.  Alderman Naden���What does an  election cost ?  The Mayor���Oh ! it don't cost very  much ; from S15 to S75.  No further action was taken in the  matter.  Several bills were ordered paid.  Permission   was  given   A. M. Rice to  erect a stairway to  the  Hart building,  which he is to  use  temporarily  as an  office.  Alderman Galloway, after a brief  discussion relative to funds, gave  notice that he will introduce a temporary loan by-law at the next meeting.  Alderman Sutherland then retired  from the meeting, leaving the council  without a quorum.  There have been several re il estate  transfers during the past few days.  Messrs. Stewart & Boomer, the well-  known railway contractors, bought  several lots in the valley. Mr. Arthur  Mowat secured two Copper street lots  below the hill for 51,750. The Town-  site company sold several lots indifferent parts of the city.  ��*S**sMBM8B����iimgMfr��miaM^^ THE  -BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  /     H.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH   1,1899.  ..'..*;���        THE ESTIMATES.  The government has not been quite  so niggardly in its estimates as  the telegraphic reports would lead  one to believe. A careful study of the  sums granted to her majesty does not  make pleasant reading* for the electors  of Boundary Creek.  The most important part for a new  district is the for roads and bridges.  The grant for East Yale is 513,000 and  for Rossland district 315,000. Boundary Creek, thanks to the last  redistribution bill, knows not whether  to look, to Rossland or East Yale for its  share, and the outlook is not hopeful  in either case. The grant in each case  is inadequate to meet the requirements.  The government has failed to realize  the urg*ent requirement's of this important section. Thousands of dollars  are voted for the Atlin I/ake district,  simply because the coast people are  more directly interested in this new  Eldorado. A greater and more permanent district than Atlin is left with  nothing but the crumbs that may fall  from the scantily furnished table of  East Yale or Rossland.  The government must be g*iven  credit, however, for realizing* the importance of the WestForH district and  granting* $5,000 for constructing* a road  to this .'district. The sum., of 34,000 is  also granted for a road along* the Main  Kettle river.  Greenwood has been singled but for  'special treatment. Every fir"e department in the province, with the exception of that in Greenwood, has been  voted a sum not exceeding* $250 and  not less that $150. The ways of the  government are almost as inscrutable  as those of providence, and it is simply  useless attempting* to find a reason for  such treatment.  The sum of $3,000 has been granted  for the purpose of erecting* arid furnishing* a school building* in the city. This  sum will erect and furnish a two-  roomed building*.  Each hospital in the province gets a  grant ol S500 and 50 cents a day for  every patient. The Greenwood hospital is possibly included unless it is  placed on the same footing* as the fire  department.  Turning* to officers, there is a general  reduction in salaries. Some of the  offices have been abolished. There is  no provision for g*old commissioners.  The Osoyoos-Kettle River division is  to have a g-overnment ag*ent at a salary  of $100 a month and a clerk with a  salary of $45 a month.  The sum of $15,000 has been granted  to assist in defraying* the expenditure  in connection with a provincial exhibit  at the Paris exhibition.  MIDWAY TO PENTICTON.  The Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern chartermong*ers received the treatment they deserved from the provincial  legislature last week. The worst enemies Boundary Creek and the Coast  cities ever had were Messrs. Maxwell  and Mclnnes, M. P's, and McLagan,  Milne et al. They usedo their influence in parliament and out of parliament to keep Heinze from building*  into the district. They used the same  influence to prevent Corbin from building*. fcThey hawked the rights accorded  them by, the legislature and bonded  their charter and their influence, accepting a small cash consideration  with the hope of receiving* the balance  as a reward for services, not in the  public interests but in the interests of  a few individuals.  The legislature punished them for  their selfish, unpatriotic actions. The  subsidies for a road from Point Roberts  to Boundary Creek district, which  these chartermongers treated as an  asset which they could dispose of to  the highest bidder, Has- been cancelled.  ;-In order to encourage legitimate  railway construction, however, the  attorney-general has introduced a bill,  granting* a subsidy from Midway to  Penticton or some other suitable point  on Okanag*an lake. There are some  new provisions in the bill which make  interesting* reading*. Below are the  important clauses:  " There is hereby granted for and in  aid of the construction of a standard  g*aug*e railway from a point at or near  Midway to a point at or near Penticton, or some other point on Okanag*an  lake, approximately one hundred miles  in lerig*th, a sum not exceeding- four  thousand dollars per mile.  " The lieutenant-g*overnor in council  may. enter into any agreement with  any person or company undertaking*  the construction of such railway for  the due construction and operation of  such railway.  " Said subsidy shall not be payable  until the railway is completed and in  running* order to the satisfaction of  the lieutenant-g-overnor in council, nor  until security or g-uarantees satisfactory to the lieutenant-governor in  council is or are g*iven for the continuous maintenance and operation of the  "railway.  '���In case said subsidy -is granted to  a railway company entitled to a land  grant for the construction of such line,  the same shall only be payable in case  said company, abandons its claim to  such land grant.  "No Chinese or Japanese person  shall be employed or permitted*to work  in the construction or operation of any  railway subsidized under this act,  under a penalty of five dollars per day  for each arid every Chinese or Japanese person so employed in contravention of this section, to be recovered on  complaint of any person, under the  provisions of the Summary Convictions  act.  "The lieutenant-g*overnor in council may incorporate any number of  persons as a railway company for the  purpose of constructing* and operating  such railway and receiving-such subsidy  and any provision contained in any railway charter passed during* the present  session of the legislative assembly  may be applied to such company. Such  company shall be subject to the British  Columbia Railway act.  " Said subsidy shall not be given to  any railway company not under the  exclusive jurisdiction of the Province  of British Columbia."  W. B.

Only a few amendments to the  Municipal act were ; introduced in the  house this year. The attorney-general  had. charge of the bill. In explaining  the measure, Hon. Mr. Martin stated  that--"-" "'";"������';;'"'. ;";'';���'" '  " By section 175 the licensing of such  clubs asfh.at,which, became famous at  Stevesiton, is forbidden.> Hon. Mr.  Martin taking the opportunity, in passing of condemning the practice of the  past with respect to clubs 'that"should  never have_been authorized.to exist by  the municipalities interested. The attorney-general also intimated that-  there might well be'a change at some  future date in connection with the  powers of city clubs, where it is now-  permitted for liquor to b.e .sold to so  many;members, and so many friends.  As-to the boards of police and licensing commissioners,^ the bill stipulates  that police magistrates are no longer  to have seats thereon by. virtue. of  their office, this change having'been  mentioned to Magistrate Hall at the  time of his appointment in Victoria.  The object was that magistrates  should be as far removed as possible  from the police and license matters  with which they would be brought in  contact in the discharge of their  magisterial duties. The two clauses  la^t-referred to read :  " In city municipalities the licensing  commissioners shall be the mayor and  two persons appointed annually by the  lieutenarit-governor-in-council, one of  whom must be a member of the council  of such city.; The term of office of  such commissioners to .be appointed  shall expire at the same time as that  of the aldermen for. such city, and the v  alderman so appointed must be a member of the council for the period for,  which he is appointed.; In case of the  absence or inability to act of the mayor  the council may appoint an alderman  to act in his place as such commissioner during such absence or inability.  A.ny two members of such board shall  constitute a quorum:"  The clause in reference to the appointment of commissioners of police  s the same as the foregoing.  Bruce  Monday.

A Large Number of Business Blocks In the  Course of Erection.  Messrs. Wallace, Miller and George,  who purchased the three lots .at.-the  corner of Center and Copper streets,  have decided to erect a two.story brick  building on the property. The building will occupy all the lots, and consequently will have a 7S-frot frontage on  Copper street and will run back 115  feet on Center. Mr. George arrived  from Nelson last Saturday and is making arrangements to excavate the lots.  A brickmaker is also coming in to  start a 3'ard. This will be the first  brick building erected  in  Greenwood.'  H. B. Munroe has leased a lot on  Copper street, the second below the  Barrett block. He intends erecting a  building thereon in the near future.  The building occupied by Messrs.  Smith & McRae is to be removed to  the rear end of the lot and a two-story  block will be built at the front. The  premises wiil be occupied by Messrs.  Smith & McRae.  Arrangements are being made to  build a large first-class hotel near the  corner of Louise and Government  streets. The building, when erected,  will cost $30,000.  Work is well under way on the big  building for the Hunter-Kendrick company. This is to be a busy locality in  the building line. In addition to Mr.  Powell's big hotel and the Wood-  Fletcher-Elkins blocks, it is quite possible that the Odd Fellows may erect a  hall in the vicinity. W. S.

The object of the university association, with wriich Mr. Gosnell is at  present associated as organizer, is  what is known as "university extension," and as-such is peculiarly adapted to the needs of a country like B. C,  whera facilities for higher education  are-limited. -The work is carried on  byuuniversity professors, the instruction being given in the form of a  printed syllabus, issued monthly,  twelve numbers constituting a year's  course in each subject. The subjects  so far arranged are Universal History,  Universal Literature, Religion and  Theology, Political Economy, Astronomy and Practical Geology. The  courses are very complete and the cost  of each so low as to bring ,them within  the reach of all, viz., S3.75- The  studies may be taken privately or in  connection with a reading center. A  large number have joined. Mr. Gosnell will appoint a representative here  before returning to the coast. The  particular object of his visit here,  however, is to'see.the country.  1     General.. f  I     Merchants J  4* ��*��*  �������* . ������  c���� Barrett Block, Copper Street, ����*  UNIVERSITY   EXTENSION.
