MAKE} no apologies for devoting this week a  part of the somewhat limited space at pur command in brief reference to the glorious.. event  which we in Boundary, as will every community  of British subjects throughout; the lOmpire, commemorate next Tuesday, the 22nd of June, when  Her Majesty the Queen will have accomplished  over sixty years of her rule, ,,and have reigned  long-er than any other Kng*lish sovereign. What a day, it  will be for her, England's Queen, when before the sacred  and noble edifice of St. Paul's she listens to the words of  thanksgiving*-to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe for the  blessings which have attended her sovereignty, and hears  in response tlie enthusiastic shouts of the assembled crowds,  ���Shouts that will re-echo as loudly and as joyously from  many distant snores whose peoples proudly ackno"wledg*e  the flag* of Knglarid as their own ! And what niemories  must not this impressive but auspicious occasion awaken in  the miia'd' of Her Majesty of the g*reat events that have  taken place since that June day sixty years ago, when in  the first bloom of youthful-health and beauty she took those  vows of grave responsibility which placed in her eharge the  destinies of a great nation! How well and how nobly the  Queen has.performed her trust is best evrid-enced by the ^devotion and respect in which she is enshrined in the hearts  of hen. people.   - .;"."���"���','��� ^���'-���'-������������.'/v :"; : -v"~- .��� .}''. '':,/-  "It is hard to say,'' wrote an eminent journalist, in his  survey of the Queen's, reign at the time of the .Jubilee, ten  years ago, "that any other half century has seen changes,  SO momentous, so instanteous and yet so permanent in their  effects^ so wide'in the rang*e of their influence, as that in  which the men and women now living have reached middle  ag*e." And the marvellous scientific discoveries, the beneficent reforms', both political and social, and the extraordinary advancement in all branches of learning during  the last fifty years go far to justify this comment. Merely  as instances, (for in a short article of this description one  . cannot, even if in a position to do so, go through the list of.  chang;es in the great gamut of life during* this amazing  period of time)-contrast the arc-light with which the streets  of all cities of any importance are now illumined with the  horn-lanterns of sixty years ago; the express train with the  sta.g*e-coach ; the telegraph, the telephone and the postal  service of to-day with the couriers and runners of the day  before yesterday ; the humane treatment of criminals now  with the degrading' cruelties and the severe forms of punishment frequently quite out of proportion to the' character  of the offence, practiced and in force in our grandfathers'  time; ag*ain think, moreover, that one modern iron-clad  could with comparative ease have sunk Nelson's victorious  fleet in less than an hour, O tempora mutantur ! We cite,  however, but to emphasise the fact that the Queen's reig*n  is not only notable in point of leng*th but in significance.  Other sovereigns have ruled long* in lOngland but there is  no such development to chronicle between the commencement and end of any precurrent century as has taken place  during* the last sixty years. /  ��� T"  The stability of Her Majesty's throne has never for an  instant been in jeopardy. It has been one of the most  gratifying signs of her lon'g- rule that her subjects have  never ceased to follow both her private and public career  with extraordinary sympathy and insight. They have  indeed made her joys their Ijoys and her sorrows  their  sor  rows ; and when, "with the passing* pageant of ministries  and statesmen going* from glory and greatness to the  'temples of silence and reconciliation,' the husband who  had cheered more than twenty years of her pre-eminent  life also passed thitherwards," the nation followed her to  her widowhood with a million condolences and with catholic  regret, als it had been,gladdened by her maternity and the  felicities of her married life: No greater proof of this affectionate esteem in which the . Queen is held by all classes  of British subjects in all, parts, of the Empire, could be  afforded than by the national rejoicings in 1887 on the  occasion of the fifty years' jubilee, when from every quarter of the Queen's domains enthusiasm was awakened, and  eager loyalty with difficulty found adequate expression to  voice the force of its sentiment. On this, still greater event  of the Diamond Jubilee we have every assurance that Canada's commemoration at least will be pre-eminently in  keeping*. ;  Not the least noteworthy chapter in the history of Her  Majesty's reign is that relating- to our own country: When  the Queeri ascended the throne, her soldiers were engaged  in the work of quelling that rebellion of the handful of  misg-uided patriots who took up arms in their strug*gle  for responsible government. What McKenzie and Pap-  .ineau so violently demanded was afterwards granted and  td-day the Hon. Wilfred L/aurier, the .gifted' representative  of the Dominion of Canada, is given precedence over other  colonial premiers not because he is the Hon. Wilfred  I^aurier, but because he is the representative of the only  British colonies whose provinces have been confederated  into a united dominion.  J>/i ��!fi- ��1'*  ���>(��*" "'1$ ''!&  THE   PROVINCIAL   MINERALOGIST.  Mr. W. A. Carlyle, the provincial mineralogist, arriv-  ed4n Greenwood on Monday and expressed his intention of  remaining in the neighborhood until he had fully satisfied  himself that he had seen everything worth seeing- in  Boundary���admittedly the most promising of the copper-  gold mining camps of British Columbia. His visit, therefore, will probably extend over a period of several weeks ;  for althoug*h Mr. Carlyle appears to be a man of energy  and strong- physique, many miles of hard climbing must  be covered in order that full justice may be done to the potential niining resources of the district in the' form of an  official report. Mr. Carlyle is strongly impressed with the  great showings at Fair view,. Camp McKinney, the Crown  Point camp, and at Central camp, which he has already  seen, and to use his own words he has " great faith in the  country and a claim or two ' pinching*' out does not discourage him." Coming* as it will at.a time when, the certainty  of a satisfactory solution to the transportation problem  can be relied on, Mr. Carlyle's report on Boundai^ and  the subsidiary camps will be doubly helpful in attracting*  the attention of the investor  and  capitalist to the district.  Owing to the heavy and continuous rains this week, Mr.  Carlyle was unable to visit any of the mines. He intends  making up for lost time next week and will visit as  many camps as possible.  $6-  ���>if  ���it*.  The Fontenoy, owned by Hug*h Cameron, at Camp McKinney, is showing* up well. One shaft is down 83 feet  while a second has been sunk to a depth of 30 f eet; there  are also several tunnels and crosscuts, the ore running*  high. Work on the property has, however, been temporarily suspended.

At ���the:.'beginning of the week the  shaft on the Golconda was down nearly  50 feet in solid ore assaying* On an  /. average $15 to the ton. The Golconda  has every appearance of becoming a  niine.    .  Mr. J. H. MacFarlarie returned on  Sunday from Camp McKinney and  went up on Tuesday to view the work  which is being carried on at the Sunset. The contractors are making good  progress with,the tunnel, which is now  in nearly 90 feet.  R. Robinson returned on Monday  from a prospecting trip up the West  Fork -where, however, he failed to meet  with much success, and his opinion  therefore that Pass creek is the best  camp in Boundary remains more firmly  established than ever.   >  The Bonnie Bell claim, anent which  it will be remembered there was some  litigation a short time ago, is turning  out a more valuable property than was  anticipated, a strong lead having been  uncovered thereon over 30 inches wide,  carrying more than average values.  Jim Marshall has resumed work on  the Bank of England, in Greenwood  ,; camp. The claim is looking very well,  the existence of a large second ledge  having been thoroughly established.  He will shortly leave for the Slocan,  where he owns a number of promising  claims.  Several prospectors returned on  Thursday to Greenwood from the West  Fork of Kettle river. They report that  hundreds of prospectors have visited  that section during the past few weeks  and that claims have been located in  every direction. Another district which  has been visited by many prospectors  recently is Christina lake.  The work on the Mother Iyode, owned  by the Boundary Mines Co., is only enhancing the value of this wonderful  property. About 150 feet from the  mouth of the tunnel a winze is being  sunk, with the result that exceedingly  rich-looking ore is being placed on the  dump. A new air pump which has  been placed in the tunnel is working  satisfactorily.  The Iyakeside mine  in   Iyong  L,ake  camp, owned by Messrs. Cameron and  Eyinerson, showed up well  during  the  past week.    A few  feet  was  sunk  in  the ledge and the ore increased in richness. The 100-foot tunnel that is being  run to tap the vein is now in  about 25  feet.    The Greenwood Gold Mining &  Milling Co., in which Messrs. Cameron  and lOmerson  are  also  interested, are  working the Enterprise   and  Anchor,  which are  adjacent  to  the  Iyakeside.  Shafts have been sunk on both proper-,  ties and exceptionally high assays have  been secured.  The assessment work was completed  last week on the Sunnysides, adjoining  the Big Windy, in Providence camp,  owned by Messrs. Iyamb and McMynn.  There appears to be on the claim a  strong lead of pyrrhotite and copper  pyrites carrying small gold and silver  values; of which there was no indication on the surface, the discovery of  mineral in place having been made on  a showing of white quartz. Mr. Brady,  the well-known mining engineer, who  viewed the property on the occasion of  his last visit, pronounced the formation met with there as possessing exceedingly interesting characteristics.  ��3  'IS, TAKIO pleasure in informing the Public that we are now buying  our   soaps   direct  from  the  manufacturers,   thereby  saving  the  middle man's profit and  giving  our  Customers  the  benefit.

Dr. Jakes is expected back from Vernon on Sunday.  Mr. George Seymour left on Thursday on a three months' visit to the  " Old Country."  I. A. Dinsmore, the provincial constable at Grand Forks, was among- the  visitors to Greenwood this week.    ,  Miss Thornber, teacher of the Greenwood school, leaves to-day to spend the  holidays at her home in Westminster.  The funeral of the late J. J. White  takes place to-day from the hospital.  The remains will be interred in the  Greenwood cemetery.  The greater portion of Russell &  Co.'s g*oods have arrived and they are  now displaying- a complete stock of  hardware. Their tinshop will be opened in a few days. ;  Mr. Miller has succeeded in g-etting*  enoug*h old-time baseball players in  Greenwood to make a team,, and consequently there will be a match played  between them and an. Anaconda nine ,  on Dominion Day at Anaconda.  Messrs. Robt. and Hug*h Wood left  for Vancouver on Thursday, in order  to be present at the supreme court trial  / in connection with the Jack of Spades  and St. I^awrerice leases. They expect to return in about ten days.  Capt. Adams, of the Midway Town-  site Co., is expected from Montreal  shortly.. He has succeeded, during* his  four months' visit to lyondon, in organizing* several companies to take over  and develop his British Columbia mining* properties.  Dr.. Smith rode throug-h the heavy  rain on Friday morning to attend Mr.  .White.. He reached Greenwood at 4 a.  m;, but the unfortunate man had died  several hours before the doctor's arrival. Dr. Smith has established a hospital at Grand Forks.  J. H. Falconer, provincial org-anizer  for the Independent Order of Foresters,  is at present in Greenwood and is meeting* with success in the work of organizing- a lodg*e here. Mr. Falconer succeeded in establishing a: lodge of 30  members at Grand Forks last week.  The British Columbia Mining- Record  for June���a Diamond Jubilee number  ���is if anything* better than those preceding* it. There are interesting* reports from all the mining sections of  the province including a well-written  article on Boundary Creek from the  pen of ." Percy Verens."  The current issue of the British Columbia Gazette contains notice of the  appointment of S. Russell Almond as  mining recorder for the recently created mining* district of Grand Forks.  It is understood that the records of all  the mines in the territory which has  been included in the Grand Forks division will be transferred to the Grand  Forks Office. This will entail a  deal of careful work.  gfreat  Mr. Hedley, the well known smelter  man, returned to Greenwood from Nelson on Thursday and will remain in  the district for some time. Mr. Hedley  is endeavoring to induce capitalists to  at once begin the erection of a smelter  in the district, as he believes that such  a scheme is practicable without a railway. In his opinion a smelter would  g*o a long- way towards hastening- the  construction of a railway into the district.  It is understood that Provincial Constable Deans has been removed from  Midway to Fairview and that Mr. Lewder has received the appointment of  constable at Oso3roos.  The Kamloops Sentinel is agitating*  the stationing of a public school inspector at Kamloops and another at Nelson  in order that the schools of the Interior  can be more frequently visited than at  present, with all the inspectors living*  at the Coast. There is no g"ood reason  why the Sentinel's plan should not be ���  adopted.  Foreman Keene of the Cariboo mine  at Camp McKinney is ag*ain a free  man, the judg-e and jury having- acquitted him of the charg-e of shooting-  Roderick, who was suspected of holding* up George B. McAuley and taking*  from him two g*old bricks. The particulars of the trial have not been ascertained, but it is understood that the  greater portion of the evidence went to  show that Keene shot Roderick in self  defence.     .'���"-.'   ,'      :.: -������ ���?/������ ���-'���'���''  Thursday's mail from .Spokane arrived at the postbffice in a disgraceful  condition. The contents of all the bag's  were soaked by; the heavy rains- and-  several important letters were%o badly  damaged that they could scarcely be  read. It is surely not too much to ask  that those who are paid for carrying'  Her Majesty's mails should provide an  oil-cloth to protect the bag's from the  "rain. ..;    '.'���.'.  Keigtitley--McAuley.  Mr. lowing'Keig-htley, of Anaconda,  and Miss May McAuley, sister of  Thos. McAuley, one of the proprietors  Oa the Boundary hotel, Midway, were  married in Spokane on Thursday last.  Mrs. Palmerston, of Spokane,'acted as  bridesmaid, while Mr. T. McAuley supported the grooms The bride looked  charming* in a costume of white Henrietta trimmed with white satin and  orang-e blossoms, covered with a beautiful bridal veil. *Mr. and Mrs; Keig*ht-  ley are both popular in the district and  their many friends join with The  Times in extending congratulations.  It is understood that Mr. and Mrs.  Keig*htley will reside in Midway.  The Price of Mines.  I^est intending- investors should be  led to believe that all claims in Boundary Creek^district are held at unreasonable fig-ures, The Times hastens to  state that while a number of claim  owners hold their properties too high,  there are many promising' properties  thatcan.be bonded on easy terms or  can be purchased at a fair fig-ure. As  was stated in The Times last week,  exorbitant fig-ures for properties are  likely to drive away capitalists; but  those wishing to invest in mines should  riot lose sig-ht of the fact that there are  in the district promising* properties  that can be secured without the expenditure of much capital.

Mr.. J. P. Graves, the well known
Spokane mining* man who - successfully:
organized in the iDast two companies
to take over and develop the Old Ironsides and the Knob Hill, in Greenwood
camp, arrived from Spokane on Wednesday and spent several days on both
/ claims. Mr. Graves was accompanied
by Mr. White, the founder of White's"
camp. While at the Old Ironsides and
Knob Hill, Messrs. Graves and White
thoroughly inspected the properties
with a view to ascertaining* the most
advantag-eous plan of  opening  them.
^Mr. Guess, who accompanied them, secured many samples from, which he
-yvrill make assays....    ;;
:•:••:;:vMr. Graves, when, seen by a Times
representative, stated that both cora-
-patiies for whom he is managing director have determined to develop both
properties and that this will be done as
„speedily as possible. A foreman will
be secured who will have charge of the
work on the ground; while  Mr. Graves
; will manag-e the properties from Spokane, making frequent visits here dur-
, irig* the summer; He has'■•not- yet decided on the exact work thiat is to be
done, but in all probability the work of
-sinking; a shaft will at once be commenced: on the Old Ironsides, while
considerable surface work will be carried out on the Knob Hill. In Mr.
Graves' opinion the extent of the work
; to be .done on these and other properties in the. district held by outside capitalists is dependent upon the.prpbabil-
\ ity of the early commencement of railway construction.. The news that has
. already been received has been sufficiently encouraging* to induce mine
owners to beg*in the work of developing
their properties, and the assurance
that a railway will be commenced at
an -early date :will be - the • means of securing the;..;■ expenditure of a large
amount of riioney in order that mines
may be placed On a shipping basis.

SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1897.  THE   R Ally WAY   POLICY.  Hon. Mr. Blair's speech  delivered a  few days ago, in which he bluntly told  the delegates of  the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Railway that they, would  have to wait at least  another  year for  government    assistance,   has    evoked  considerable adverse criticism  in  the  Coast cities.    Those having* the  interests of the   Coast  cities   at  heart  and  who are desirous of  securing  for  the  business men of the province  at  least  a portion of the  ever-increasing  trade  of   the mining-   districts   from   Hope  Mountain to the eastern boundary line  of   the  province,   are disappointed at  findirig-that in all probability  eastern  wholesalers   will,   throug*h   the   early  construction of the Crow's  Nest  Pass  line, be in an excellent position  to secure this  trade.     It  is  true  that  the  construction of a railway from the.Columbia river  to  Penticton  will  afford  circuitous communication to and from  the Coast cities, but  since  this road is  to be under the control of  the  C.P.R.  company it is safe to presume that notwithstanding- the powerful  efforts of  the Minister of  Railways  to  curb its  avariciousness, the company will still  continue the work  of  hampering and  harassing* business men.  When the  history  of  the  past  session's provincial railway legislation is  considered, but little  surprise  can  be  expressed at the position taken  by the  Minister of Railways.    This enterprise  was damned from the first by the faint  praise of the  present  provincial  government.    When its  remarkable Railway Aid Bill was first made public, it  was   aptly   dubbed  the   "Heinze  Aid  Bill."    There was a subsidy of $4,000 a  mile for a line of railway from Penticton to Kettle river (for which we were  thankful);    $4,000  a  mile  for  a road  from Bute Inlet to Quesnelle (a sop  to  disappointed Victorians), and a subsidy  of $4,000 a mile for only 60 miles from  the Coast eastward.    The  Premier  of  the province aud other members of the  government gave  many  reasons  why  further assistance should not be granted for a  road  from  the  Coast.    They  threw suspicion   on   the   feasibility  of  the scheme ; they questioned its financial standing* and attacked its  personnel.    The people of the province, how  ever, are masters of the political   situation, and the government was  forced  to come  down   with   an   appropriation  for a road from the Coast to Pentictori.  But the people of this province cannot  dictate the policy of the  Federal government,   as   Hon.   Mr.   Blair plainly  told them during* his visit to the Coast.  _The   Federal  government secured  its  power from the more  populous eastern  ; provinces r and so far as the  wishes of  the people of British Columbia are concerned  they  cannot   sway   Hon.   Mr.  Blair into adopting any railway policy  they may deem proper.    The Minister  of Railways being- an  observant man,  studied the policy pursued by the  provincial government and is acting- along*  the lines  laid  down  by  that  government until public opinion compelled it  to  alter them.     The  astute Minister  has probably come to the conclusion  that   Hon.   Mr.   Turner  and  his  col-  leag-ues,   having*  studied  the  railway  situation, were rig*ht in the railway aid  bill  which  they  first  introduced   and  that they were forced to pursue a  different course by  the  importunities of  the Coast people.  If Hon. Mr. Blair had studied the  matter a little further, if he had probed  into the motives which actuated the  Turner government in its initial railway policy, if he had weighed the influences which dictated that policy, he  would probably have arrived at- ah entirely different conclusion. He would  then have discovered that the interests  of the people of the province had not  been considered, but that the provincial, government's railway policy was  the production of F. August Heinze  and his very distinguished lieutenant,  the Hon. I^dg-ar Dewdney. Had the  railway bill passed as first introduced,  it would have suited them to a nicety,  but in provincial matters the power of  the electors still remains greater than  that of those two enterprising g-entie-  men, and consequently the government  was forced to make its railway aid bill  more in accordance with the wishes of  the people. But Mr. Heinze, with the  assistance of Premier Turner, both of  whom are in Ottawa lobbying* for the  Columbia & Western Railway, can use  there any arguments they may see fit,  knowing* that the wishes of a mere  handful of people scattered throug-hout  a large province cannot chang-e the  policy of a Federal government.  The question of railway assistance  for a Coast road does not vitally concern the people of Boundary -district;  all we are anxious about is to secure  railway connection ; but like all those  who have studied the situation, we feel  that the fact that Iyieut.-Governor  Dewdney is a director in the Columbia  & Western Co. and that Mr. Heinze appears to have an hypnotic influence  over the members of the provincial  government, places the people at the  mercy of two speculators and brings  legislation into contempt. Take the  Alien Iyabor bill, for instance. It was  passed by the provincial legislature,  notwithstanding- the opposition of the  government, and had it received the  sanction of the Lieutenant-Governor it  would have prevented the employment  of Chinese or Japanese in the construction of the Columbia & Western Railway or any other state-aided enterprise;, but Director Dewdney, of the  Columbia & Western Railway Co., had  too much control over I^ieut.-Governor  Dewdney, and consequently the bill did  not receive his assent. The result is  that if construction beg*iris on the Columbia & Western this year, Mr. Dewdney and Mr. Heinze can pocket extra  profits because they are able to employ  hordes of Chinese ag*amst whom it ,is"  impossible for white laborers to compete.    .   . '������' .   ,r   .  '-���       ��� "���';' ��� .     ' ''.   ���'  If Minister Blair had studied the personnel of the Columbia & Western  Railway Co. and its relation to the ,  provincial government, he would be  less ready to give his ear to suave Mr.  Heinze and his henchman, Mr. Turner.

Although the details of the Winnipeg  deal, to which The Times made reference last week, have not."been made  public by the principals, it is-, learned".  from a reliable source that Mr. Mcintosh still retains his half interest in  the property. Messrs. Honey and  Beacher, who came out here from  North Dakota at the request of Mr.  Mcintosh, have purchased the other  half interest from John Mack. The  price paid to Mr. Mack is reported to  be $15,000 in cash and the balance in  stock in the company which is being  org-anized by Messrs. Honey, Beacher  arid Mcintosh. The" ���capital stock ���"���of  the company^is $1,0.00,000, and the incorporators have guaranteed to purchase sufficient of the treasury stock  to secure the money necessary to do  considerable work on the mine.  ���>%< �����&-���������  !   '  The New Mining Laws.  We are in receipt of the Directory of  Mines for Mayj 1897, published by the  Mining Record, Lt. L/y., of Victoria.  The book contains the only complete  synopsis of the mining laws of British  Columbia yet published, with amendments passed at the late session of the  Legislature, carefully compiled by Archer Martin, barrister-at-law, Victoria,  B.C. In addition to the above, much.  useful information relating to the  mines and mining* g*enerally is included in the May number. Mr. H. Mortimer lyamb is agent for the Directory  in Boundary and will be g*lad to receive  information from claim-owners desiring* of having- descriptions of their  properties appear in the next issue of  the .work. The Directory is sold at  SOc. a copy, or $1.50 for the four quarterly numbers.  The Boundary Creek Mining & Milling*-Co. have several men at work /on  the D.A., G.A.R., and O.B. claifns.  The work on the D.A. crosscut is being  prosecuted day and night, and Manager Holbrook expects to strike th^; very  rich vein in a few days. ,v  Andy Spence brought dowjJ this  week some very healthy-looking specimens of copper pyrites from the Willa-  mina, in Greenwood camp, on which  the assessment is just completed.

Since the interview with Mr. lyeahy,  of   Findlay,   Ohio,   was  written,   that  gentleman has shown his faith   in  the  district   by   associating  himself   with  Messrs. J. P. Fell and D.   Carmody, of  Victoria, in the purchase of a group of  five claims.    The property is known as  the Currie group and is situated on the  West Fork  of  Kettle river,   about  45  miles  above  Rock  Creek.      The deal  was negotiated by W. T. Thompson, of  Midway^   who represented   the  claim  holders. , But little  development work  has been done on the  claims,  but  the  surface showing  gives  every  encouragement that the expenditure of money  will prove them to be of  great  value.  Two   well-defined veins  run  through  the five claims.    The property is along  the line of the  proposed  Columbia  &  Western Railway.   Mr. lyeahy expressed himself as being well  pleased  with  the purchase, which is not only   made  for himself but  also  for  his  Eastern  associates.     He  stated  that  they  intend to develop anything they may secure,   and  that  they  are  looking  for  other investments in  the  district.    In  fact  they  have about closed  another  deal by which they  obtain   additional  interests in that  locality.    Mr. lyeahy  has also bonded some property  in  the  Kettle River valley.  Investors Coming:  A mining engineer who is well acquainted with the mining districts of  the province and who spent the last  two weeks in Boundary Creek district,  stated before leaving for Kootenay  that there is no mining district in the  province can be compared with Boundary Creek excepting the Slocan. The  latest reports from Rossland and /Nelson are to the effect that capitalists  who are in there seeking investments  are gathering all (possible information  concerning this district, as the early  construction of a connecting railway  which is now assured has impressed  them with the advisability of investing  here as early as possible. There is a  decided impression on the outside that  there will shortly be a rush to Greenwood of intending investors.  Liquor Licenses.  The court of licensing commissioners  was held at Midway on Tuesday last.  Messrs. Kerr, Hodgson, McCallum and  Norris, J.P.'s, presided. Liquor licenses were granted to Thos. McDonnell,  for his premises on Dholt creek ; Neil  Hardy, for his new hotel on the North  Fork ; Malcolm McCuaig, for premises  at Rock Creek. Two licenses were also  granted for hotels in Cascade City. A  transfer -faas granted from Seymour &  Webb to Seymour & Co., for the Windsor hotel. At the instance of Mr. A.  S. Black, who intends making application on behalf of a client for another  liquor license for Greenwood, the court  was adjourned until August 10th.  Export Duty on Ore.  Hon. H. S. Fielding, minister of  finance in the Dominion cabinet, has  notified parliament that it is the intention of the government to introduce an  act placing an export duty on ore. The  act may be put in force at any time'by  the Governor-General in Council. The  intention of the government is to prevent if possible the erection of smelters  across the International boundary for  the purpose of smelting British Columbia ores.

J. J. White, who was proprietor of  the Boundary Falls hotel until a short  time ago, met with an accident which  terminated fatally on Thursday evening. Mr. White left Boundary Falls  hotel for Midway about three in the  afternoon. He was driving a rather  /spirited, team which got beyond his  ^control while going down one of the  steep hills-leading towards/Midway.  Mr. Glaze and his men, who were working on the new irrigation ditch/noticed  the team rushing at full speed down  the hill. White had lost control ��bf the  lines .and was clinging to the seat.  Shortly afterwards he was thrown over  the dashboard. Mr. Glaze and others  . -v?ho ran tq his assistance found him  unconscious. A front arid a hind wheel  of the heavy wagon had evidently run  across his head and neck. The team  was stopped.by Mr; Glaze's men and  it was used in conveying: the injured  man to, the Greenwood "hospital,, which  was reached about seven o'clock in the  evening. *���-  Dr. Jakes haying been absent at the  assize court  at Vernon,  Mr.   Stephen  Taylor was called in to attend  to Mr.  White.    Mr. Taylor  had  considerable  , experience with such cases in England  and   after doing  everything possible  for the injured man he declared that in  his opinion he could not-live 12 .hours.  A messenger was sent to Grand Forks  for a medical man, but the trip proved  a futile one as Mr. White never regained consciousness and died  in less than  two hours after reaching the hospital.  J. J. White was well known throughout  the  district.-   He  was  a   man   Of  splendid physique, being several inches  over six feet in  height  and weighing  fully   250   pounds.      He    encountered  many ups and  downs  in life,..having .  been  at one  time ' a    wealthy   man.  leaving Ontario in the early seventies, i  he settled at Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.      Here   he - made  .considerable  money but lost it-when the boom burst.  He came  to  British   Columbia  in  the  construction days of the C.P.R. and resided oil the coast for  some  time. ' He  then came to Fairview  and followed  f arming and mining before purchasing  the  Boundary  Falls, hotel,  which  he  ^sdld a few weeks ago.     Mr..White was  about 45 years of age  and unmarried.  His brother Tom.lives   in  Greenwood,  while another brother is at present in  Sandon.  CAMP   MCKINNEY   NOTES.  [SPECIAL    CORRESPONDENCE.]  There are between 40 and 50 men oil  the pay-roll in Camp McKinney. Besides the work on the Cariboo, several  properties are being developed.  ."'���/'���  Fourteen men are at work on the  Minnehaha. The manager, Major  Megraw, 'has secured the "erection of  five large buildings on the property,  including a neat and comfortable  dwelling-house, a boarding-house and  two bunk-houses. The ore on this property is similar to that taken from the  Cariboo.    The shaft  is  down  60 feet  and a whim is now being used  instead  ���& ���  of the hand1 windlass. There is ;pvery  little water coming into the mine.  Everything connected with the Minnehaha has a most hopeful appearance.  The Cariboo mine is now hi /charge  of Mr. Douglas, a gentleman of/18 years  experience in mining in Mexico and  California. He speaks in the highest  terms regarding the Cariboo. He states  however that additional machinery of  modern type is necessary to secure the  best results and suggests the purchase  of a Frue Vanher machine.  The work bii the Anarchist has been  temporarily suspended, owing, to Mr.  Sidley's absence. The shaft on the  property is down about 60 feet. A ditch  is being run from the North Fork of  Rock creek to the property. By this  means about 100 inches of water will  be secured. Mr. Sidley intends utilizing this water in a mill, which will, be  erected shprtiy. There are three distinct ledges On the Anarchist.'  The Aloha is a promising-looking  but undevelbped property which adjoins the Anarchist.  .... School Examination.  The closing examination of the  Greenwood public school was held yesterday morning, there being present  besides the teacher and pupils, trustees  Smailes and Galloway and a number  of parents and friends. After the pupils had been examined in different  subjects, the honor rolls were presented  by v Rev. Mr. Iveith as follows : Proficiency���John David Galloway ; Punctuality and Regularity���Maggie Giffen  Stooke ; Deportment���Mary Christina  Christensen. Miss " Thornber, the  teacher, also gave prizes to the'following pupils : Josie Bartlett, for reading;  Hilda Smailes for writing; Ted McArthur for spelling, and Anna Ghris-  tetisen for deportment." -Brief addresses were delivered by Messrs. Galloway,  Hallett, Iveith and Ross, in which  teacher and pupils were congratulated  upon the successful work for the term.  MINING  NOTES.;  Mr. Howys, of Nelson, spent the  week in Greenwood,and vicinity.  -��� ���' ��� Messf's! :.Fislier arid Keller ��� t-his week  located several claims in Central camp.  There is running through the claims  an immense ledge of ore, but its value  has yet to be determined. The ledge is  over 60 feet in width.  A considerable force of men are at  work on the Golden Crown and good  headway is being made with the tunnel. It is now in nearly 100 feet and  in about a week manager -Collins expects to tap the second of the rich ore  veins which run  through the property.  Mr. Iveslie/Hill, M.E}., returned from  Calgary on Wednesday. He was accompanied by Mr. Harris, a gentleman  who has had much experience in other  mining districts. During his absence  Mr. Hill visited the Slocan district. It  is understood that another payment of  $6,000 has recently been made with respect to tlie bond which Mr;, .Hill's  Company has on the Jewel.  R. J. Hood and T. Pascoe reached  Greenwood on Wednesday after cutting  a trail from the main Kettle river to  Boundary creek. They had been prospecting on the West Fork, and when  they reached the Crown Point instead  of taking the wagon-road they struck  out across country for Boundary creek.  They found the country a hard one to  travel in as their course was impeded  with dead falls and undergrowth necessitating the use of the axe nearly  all the way. They came out ��� at Murray's ranch on Boundary creek. The  men state that if a proper trail were  cut along the line they traveled it-  would greatly shorten the distance to  the main Kettle river and the West  Fork.  TRANSFERS FOR THE WEEK.

The now famous district of Kootenay  has been and  is  fortunate  in  having*  men interested in its mineral resources  who  have  learned  that  " if we  only  suffer any person to  tell  us   his  story  morning* and evening but  one  twelvemonth, he will  become  our  master."  Making* this aphorism their watchword  these enterprising*  claim  holders   and  mine owners have invaded the Eastern  cities  on  both   sides  of  the  line  and  poured into not unwilling  ears  stories  of this Eldorado in south-eastern British Columbia.  In niiany instances they  conquered, and to-day there  are  Eastern men, and women too, who  are  the  proud   possessors   of    treasury   stock,  while   Eastern    capitalists    or    their  agents are to-day in Kootenay  investing- their surplus cash and upbraiding  themselves   that   they  did  not    come  sooner.     While  Kootenay  is  what  is  claimed for it���-one of the  richest mining- sections in  the  world���and  while  its  mines  deserve  all  the encomiums  that have  been   lavished  upon  them,  the same  enterprising- Easterners are  now being speedily convinced  that  to  the west of Kootenay  is  another  dis-  - trict whose mountains are rich in minerals   arid  which  has  rivers   "whose  ancient deposits are gold  beds,   sands  like those of Pactolus.'"  Among* the shrewd  Americans who  are ready to back this conviction with  plenty of capital; is Mr. Jas. F. L,eahy  of Findlay, Ohio.   Mr. lyeahy is an attorney who made money in oil  and in  other   enterprises   arid   represents    a  number of monied friends  in  Chicago  arid  Findlay.     He  arrived  in  Greenwood from Kooten ay on  S a t ur*d ay and  spent the week in visiting the different  mining, camps in the  vicinity.    "You  cannot use language too  strong," said  Mr. lyeahy to a Times representative,  "in describing my opinion of this district.    After visiting Kootenay  I   am  bound to say that you appear to  have  richer   and   more   varied mineral resources than   any district I have visited.     Railway  connection,  which  you  are sure to secure in a short time, will  give this district a boom that will  attract the world."    Picking up  a  piece  of ore from the Mother Eode dump Mr.  L/eahy "    exclaimed,     "Why,     there  is ore that looks richer and I believe is  richer than that taken from the L/eRoi  mine at a depth of 500 feet; and there  is no mine in Kootenay  that  contains  the enormous body of ore  that is to be  seen here.    The Slocan country is the  only district I can compare  with  that  surrounding Greenwood, but  the  Slocan  does   not contain  the wonderful  variety of ore that  is  to  be  found  in  Boundary Creek district."    Mr. lyeahy  also expressed the opinion that if Eastern capitalists only knew of the wonderful resources of the district,  they  would at  once  seek  to  secure  investments.   He is himself carefully looking  over properties  and  will  undoubtedly  purchase in the  near  future.    Besides  visiting the Mother Iyode  Mr.   lyeahy,  in company with Messrs. Fell and Car-  niody, of Victoria, visited  the  Sunset,  Golden     Crown,     Stemwinder,    Last  Chance and other  properties  that are  being developed.    Such  properties as  these, being situated in different camps,  were in his  opinion  eloquent  tributes  to the mineral  richness of the whole  district.    Mr. lyeahy  returns  to  Kootenay where he and  his  friends  have  some interests, but  he  is  fully  determined to pay another  visit  to  Greenwood in the near future.

Taylor having- successfully0  arranged for the disposal of his late  brother's business, hopes to leave today for his home in Barrow-in-Furness,  England, much to the regret of his  numerous friends in Greenwood. He  will take back with him quite a unique  collection of curios and souvenirs from  Boundary, notably over two ounces of  g-old-dust from the placer claims on the  creek ; a miniature ore-dump of specimens from almost every camp in the  district; a coug-ar's skin, a bear's skin,  several -fine beaver, marten, fisher and  mink pelts ; other trophies of the chase  including heads of deer and mountain  goat; and last but not least some four-  hundred photographic negatives of  local scenes^ mining* and otherwise.  Upon his return home Mr. Taylor;; proposes to astonish the natives by making an exhibition of his collection, and  he is, moreover, properly prepared to  talk "B. C." and particularly Boundary  Creek when ever/ and where ever1 he  can. g*et an audience. Being a man  well-known and highly esteemed in his  native place, which is a town of considerable commercial importance Mr.Taylor hence should be able to do a great  deal toward interesting* those among*  his fellow townsmen on the look out.  for a chance of profitable, investment,  in niining* on Boundary creek, and we  certainly, expect, in consequence of his  recommendations, to have the opportunity of welcoming in Greenwood a  number of visitors from Barrow in the  course of the next few months. Ber  fore leaving''Mr. Taylor caused a tomb?  stone to be erected at" his brother's  grave, and it is understood the local  Masons will have inscribed thereon a  fitting* tribute to the memory of the  deceased member of their Order. Mr.  Taylor has promised to present the  Vernon Iyodg*e of Free Masons as well  as the representatives of the fraternity  here, with a large framed picture of  his brother as soon as the work can be ,  executed.  In all probability another promising*  camp will be added to those which siir-  round Greenwood. About five miles  to the north-west of the Big* Copper, in  Copper camp, there are about 50 Very  promising- claims located. Among the  latest who have struck it rich  iii  this  V.'  locality was David Bryant: He recently located a claim there which  from all indications will prove;- a valuable property. /  HE PIONEER HOTEL  Greenwood City, Boundary Creek, B,C,  #     *  We are prepared to welcome Guests and provide g*ood accommodation.
