N CELEBRATION .of Her Majesty the Queen's  $ Diamond Jubilee a cricket match was played on  Tuesday between elevens representing Greenwood and Midway, on the latter Club's grounds.  The weather left nothing to be desired the sky  being for the greater part of the day being overcast and'cloudy, and a shower of rain which fell  during the previous night effectually laid the dust. Play  was commenced shortly after 10:30 a.m., Mr. Hodgson, who  captained the Greenwood eleven, elected to send his men  first to the wicket. For Greenwood Woodhouse and Hodgson alone succeeded in making any soft of stand against  the bowling of Morgan and Gardom, arid by half-past-  twelve...the score stood at 49 for all wickets down. For  Midway R. Stuart and Morgan compiled together 43 runs  before they were separated, when play was adjourned for  luncheon in the pavilion where an excellent cold collation  was served, prepared by the ladies of Midway.' At 1:30  Deans joined R. Stuart at the bat, and Luff and \Voodhouse  were put on to bowl in the place of Hodgson and Smith.  The change in the bowling proved beneficial, notwithstanding Deanssucceeded in making the respectable score* of 30  runs before he was caught by Smith at point. Bergman,  captaining Midway, also made double figures, and at the  close of the innings the home team had scored 124. In the  2nd. innings Greenwood did better, Hodgson making the  top score of the day with a brilliantly compiled 31 ; Wood-  house also did yeoman's service for the visitors, playing a  very careful game ; and he had just become well set when  he was unfortunately run out. After Midway had made in  their 2nd. innings 50 runs* for two wickets stumps were  drawn, the visitors thus being decisively defeated by eight  wickets and 39 runs. Both elevens showed want of practice  but in all points Midway was undoubtedly the stronger. It  is hoped that a return match will be played in about a  month's time when Greenwood will have the opportunity of  reversing their recent beating. The following is the full  score :  GREENWOOD.

Mr.  Bergman,   in responding,   said  he   hoped  that  the   day's  match would be but the first of many friendly and enjoyable contests between the two clubs. He could not say that  he regretted Greenwood's present defeat, because he did  not (laughter), but he thought he might safely state that  the vanquished had nevertheless enjoyed'the day's play of  the good old English national game as heartily and as  thoroughly as the conquerors (cheers). Mr. McMynn then  proposed " the health of Her Most Gracious Majesty the  Queen." The toast was drunk with the greatest enthusiasm, the company joining in the singing of the National  Anthem, which was followed cheers. Later, a smoking  concert, at which Mr. W. H. Norris presided in the capacity  of chairman, took place in the town hall���formerly known  as Palmerston's hall���and a capital programme was carried  out, every number being well-received. Mr. Morgan play- ���  ed all the accompaniments very skillfully on the auto-harp.,  At midnight an exceedingly enjoyable day, was brought to  a close with the singing of " Auld Lang Syne " and " God  save the Queen," in which all heartily joined.  $&  ">i*  -ft?  THE   DAY   IN   GREENWOOD.  While the residents of Greenwood made no special preparations to celebrate Jubilee Day yet like the people of  probably every locality in the great Empire over which Her  Majesty reigns, they lighted their bonfire and fired a royal  salute. On Monday most of the houses in the town- were  decorated with flags and these continued to wave until after  Tuesday. . On Tuesday morning a few went to Grand  Forks" and a few to Midway but the majority remained at  home. In the afternoon a volunteer company, including  several ladies, was organized and proceeded to the top of  the mountain on which the Spotted Horse mineral claim is  located and which overlooks the town, where they built up  a huge pile of wood surrounding a tree. One of the party,  Mr. Gulley, further securely fastened a large flag to the  top of one of the trees, while another, Mr. Bosshart, prepared the dynamite for the royal salute. At dusk Mr. Boss-  hart and Mr. Propper returned to the mountain and soon  the vicinity was illuminated with a magnificent blaze ; at  the same time the regularly fired royal salute reverberated  from hill to hill. In commemoration of the day several of  those who ascended the peak favored the suggestion that it  hereafter be called Jubilee mountain.  ."!���.  tie  THE   GRAND   FORKS   CELEBRATION.  The Grand Forks Jubilee Celebration was attended by a  large number of visitors from the surrounding districts.  The different events on the programme of sports were keenly contested and several of the prizes were won by residents  of Greenwood. In. the drilling contest Lynch and Callahan  from the Golden Crown mine won the first prize and Hoff-  stetter and Winters, of Greenwood^ second. Several fast  horses were entered in'the races, the Curlew Creek grays  which distinguished themselves at Greenwood during the  Queen's birthday celebration, securing several prizes.  5^  Precisely at noon on Tuesday, while the open-air service  was being held at St. Paul's, London, Her Majesty the  Queen, as previously announced, sent simultaneously messages of greeting to all parts of her Empire. Owing to the  difference in time, the Australian colonies did not receive  the message till late in the evening, while in Canada the  telegrams were received from four to eight hours before the  hour in London at which they were despatched.  "       -'I..   A  V     ''  '.-��� ;���  / i  ifefc& 2' THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  DISCOURAGING RAILWAY NEWS.  Boundary Creek district will in all  probability keep the greater portion of  its wealth this year because the promoters of two rival railway companies refused to ag-ree at Ottawa. The Rossland Miner's Ottawa correspondent  writing- under date June 18 explains  the matter in the following way :  " Although   the   Dominion    government was anxious to subsidize  a  railway as far as Penticton" this year, and  althoug-h   the  Eastern  members  were  ready to vote  for  such   a  proposition,  the   whole   matter   has   been    finally  abandoned on account  of  the  conduct  of some parties promoting the Victoria,  Vancouver   &   Eastern   railway,   who  could not get all they wanted, from the  promoters of the Columbia &  Western  railway.    It   is  just   as well   that the  people   of   British   Columbia     should  know the facts.    As stated in this correspondence last night an arrangement  was   reached   by   which   the   railway  committee,was going to pass both bills  to-day, all interests in the   Coast  road  being amalgamated with the Columbia  & Western railway for  certain   considerations.    This agreement was  signed  by Dr. Milne in a lawyer's  office  here  last night.    Dr. Milne got pretty much  what he had in the first   instance  suggested.    It is understood that  for  certain sums of money to be paid over  at  different times, and in   all   amounting  to $55,000, Dr. Milne was to hand  over  or amalgamate the   whole   affair  with  the   Columbia   &   Western.      Charles  Hyman and Herbert Holt are now controlling the Columbia &  Western, and  had completed   their   arrangements   to  go on with the building of the  road  at  once.    ' Everything   was   closed    last  night, but this morning Dr. Milne sent  a letter to one of the promoters  of  the  Columbia & Western that he could not  stand by   his   agreement.    Those who  were supporting-  Milne  g-ot   disgusted  with the   whole   affair, and   the  result  was that there was   no   quorum   at  to-  da3'-'s committee meeting-.    Heinze and  War field   were   present   at.   the   committee."  It is just possible that some arrangements niay yet sbe made through which  Heinze will be able to  build  the  road.  He  has   a  great  deal  to  lose  by  riot  building- ; he has a  large  land   grant ;  he secures $4,000 a .mile for 100 miles if  he begins construction  within   fifteen  months from May   1st  last   and   he  is  under bonds to begin,' within that time.  He has   a  smelter  that  requires ores  and   the   district   through   which   the ���  road will pass will furnish him with an  abundant   supply.    Taking   all   these  thing's into consideration   Heinze  may  . yef begin the construction of the road.  But  the  people   of  Boundai-y. Creek  ���are to be congratulated upon   the  fact  that when one railway   scheme   passes,  under a cloud another  new one   fairly  glitters  before  their , eyes.    The   dis-  conraging news from Ottawa is accompanied .by a report that  the   Seattle  &  International   Railway**   Co.,   of which  General J. H.  Bryant   is   president,   is  going- to   extend   its   line   across   the  state through   the   Okanogon. country  and across the international   boundai-y  line.    The announcement is   made  by  'General Bryant himself.    Then the rumor is revived that Mr. Corbin is going-  to build through the reservation to tap  this district.  If we cannot get a railway we have  at the least the next best thing-���a  promise that one will come from somewhere in the near future.  > ������������<���� ��� ������ ��H������<BM��-��gfrC<B��>������> 8<00�� *<��t> a <��W��84iW����<C����<����iW��t<������W>>^>>��^>< <��*��� ������*��M��-ia  SPORTING   GOODS.  *V&    *�������    iSf*  *&��� -��l$        -jfiT  I Boxing Gloves, Dumb Bells,        Indian Clubs,  I Lacrosse Sticks, Tennis Goods,    Punching Bags,  | Cricket Supplies, Victor and Remington Bicycles,  I CHAS.

Owing to the limited time : at their disposal, the toast list was confined to  *' The Queen," proposed by the Chief  Ranger ;v "The I.O.F.," proposed by  Mr. Smith and responded to by Mr.  McKenzie; '' Sister Societies,";; proposed by Mr. Black, and. to which  Messrs.

" Our Host "  and " Auld Lang Syne " brought the  pleasant banquet to a close; The members re-assembled in the lodge room,  when the initiation ceremony was carried out. A resolution was also passed  endorsing the action of the Supreme  Deputy in recommending that Mr. R.  Wood be made an Honorary member, of  the order, and another resolution was  passed expressing- the members' appreciation of Mr. Falconer's efforts.  A Charge of Forgery.  Edgar Dufour appeared before Mr.  J. Hamill, J.P., on Monday to answer  to a charge of.-, forging his brother's  name to a cheque of Rendell & Co.'s.  The whole case arose from a misunderstanding, the evidence for the prosecution going to show that Edgar Dufour  and his brother, J. Dufour, were partners ; that one transacted business for'  the other, and that previous to this occasion one had signed and cashed the  other's cheque. Rendell & Co. have  always treated them as partners, and  sold them goods on that understanding.  The magistrate, after hearing the evidence for the prosecution, stated that  it was unnecessary to call any witnesses for the defence as there was no evidence upon which the accused could be  held for trial. He therefore dismissed  the case. Mr. A. S. Black appeared  for Dufour.  R. C. Johnson and partner returned  to Greenwood on Wednesday, after  completing the assessment work on  two of their claims in Copper camp.  Mr. Johnson went down to the reservation where he is also interested in several promising properties. Another  payment on the Calumet, which Mr.  Johnson and others bonded to the  Brandon & Golden. Crown Co., is due  next week.  .LAND. **4-+am/\+*4. ��, ��"?  "��d�� ymSKmmt m Trust  >.     V LIMITED    LIABILITY. **  Qfteaf Bstate <mb (tttinin^ QStoUxb,  riNANGiALcS: Insurance Agents  GEO.

THE   MAIL   SERVICE.  *W. J. Snodgrass, of.Okanagan Falls,  who has the contract for carrying  the  mails from Penticton to Greenwood, is  at present in Ottawa and it is reported  that he is there for the purpose  of inducing the  Dominion  government  to  grant'the necessary appropriation  for  a daily mail service between Penticton  and Greenwood!    Mr; Sii'ddgrass' plan  is to  have  the; steamer  " Aberdeen "  run daily to connect with trains and to  reach Penticton about five o'clock each  evening.    The stage would start  from  there upon the "arrival of the  steamer,  and'remain  over-night  at  Okanagan  Falls.      By   starting   from  the  Falls  early in the morning, Greenwood could  be reached the same  evening. ' If is to  be hoped that Mr. Snodgrass' mission  will prove successful and that the government will see its way clear to give  this district such mail facilities as will  be in keeping with its   g'rowing importance.    At the same  time   the  salary  attached to  the  Greenwood  postoffice  should be increased  from $40 a year to  about twice $40 a month.   There is sufficient  mail   matter  arriving  here  to  keep a person busy for about 12  hours  a day, and it is simply ridiculous to ask  one to do this work for $40 a year.  . The post-office, with  Mrs.   Wood '. in.  charge, was this week removed to comfortable   and   convenient  quarters  in  the rear of Rendell & Co. 's block.  DISTRICT NEWS.  The contract for buildiner  way  irrigation  ditch  has  the  Mid-  been  com  pleted.  Messrs. D. A. Holbrook and A. S.  Black left for Marcus on Wednesday,  in order to'close a deal in which they  are interested.  The current issue of the British Columbia. Gazette contains the announcement that Mr. G. B. Taylor, Rock  Creek, has been appointed a notary  public.  Mr. Thos. McDonnell having secured  a license at the last sitting of the court  of licensing commissioners, will open  his hotel in Boundary Creek Cit}' about  July 1st.  If Mr. Reuger, manager of the Skylark mine, had not schooled himself to  treat mining difficulties philosophically  the air in Skylark camp would be in a  sulphurous condition these days. He  had several men at work baling the  water out of the shaft and was just  congratulating himself upon the fact  that they were down to  within   a  few  feet from,the bottom when the winch  broke. The necessary repairs could  not be secured here, and before they  can be forwarded from the States the  shaft will again be full of water.  To-morrow evening Rev. Mr. X,eith  will preach a special sermon to the  members of the Independent Order of  Foresters,; The music will also be  specially suited for the occasion.  Mrs. Bailey arrived from Spokane  on Thursday to join her husband who  is half owner in the Frederick mine,  Copper^camp. Mr. and Mrs. Bailey  will reside in Greenwood the summer.  Mr. A. Fisher, of the Boundary  Creek Milling & XVumber Co., returned  from Spokane on Saturday. He was  accompanied by Mrs. Fisher and two  daughters, who will take up their residence here.  The Anacorida Commercial Club met  on Wednesday evening and perfected  - all' aifrangements for the Dominion  Day celebration. The Club decided -  to hold no further meetings during the  summer months.  Mr. I/ancaster Hobbs, of the Hall  Mines Exploration ��Go., came in from  Kootenay on Thursdaj*' and in company  with Mr. Hedley is visiting the different mining- camps. Ms. Hobbs is a  mining expert of long experience.  The funeral of the late J. J".

The services at the hospital and at  Boundary Falls cemetery, where the  remains were interred, were conducted  ,by Rev. Mr. Iyeith.������ >      ;  Dr. T-. J. Jones, of Victoria^ who is  president and manager of the Cascade  Water & Power Co., returned to Victoria on Thursday, after spending two  weeks at Cascade City and Christina  lake. The company's surveyors are  : now at work and active construction  work will be commenced shortly.  I/. V. Cuppage, inspector of roads  and bridges, this week went over the  route for the new wagon'road to I_,ong  lake and on Monday will put a gang of  men to work to build the road. Mr.  Cuppage has not yet secured the necessary lots for the jail and court-house,  but expects to get some centrally located lots within the next few days. When  this is done the building -will- be commenced.  Have Not Lost Faith.  Mr. -W: T. Smith, of the Republic  Mining- Co., has returned from Spokane and reports that notwithstanding  the unsatisfactory railway news.  Boundary Creek district is attracting  the attention of many mining men in.  that city. All in Spokane who are acquainted with the , mineral wealth of  the district are confident that but a  short, time will elapse before active  railway construction into the district  begins. Mr. Smith met Mr. Corbin,  the president of the S.F. & N. R'y. Co.,  and that gentleman informed him that  he had by no means forg-otten Boundary Creek, and, in fact, intended visiting- the district at an early date to look  over, the situation for himself. The  Victoria Colonist says that Corbin's  engineers are now on Sheep creek surveying for a route wherever a line  can be built into Boundary Creek.  Mr. T. White wishes to express his  thanks for the kind sympathy shown  him in his bereavement at the death of  his brother, by the people of Boundary.

An effort is being* made by the Roman Catholic residents of Greenwood  and Anaconda to secure a resident  priest here.  Mr. Williams, proprietor of the stag-e  line between Grand Porks and Marcus,  has purchased the Simmonds' stage  line running- between Greenwood and  Grand Forks.  The house no,??-, occupied by Mr. Kef-  fer at Anaconda has been leased and  will be converted into an hotel about  August 1st. Mr. Keffer's new residence  is now nearing- completion.  The Vancouver World's Ottawa correspondent states that Dr. Milne refused to stick to his agreement with  Heinze because the latter refused to  deposit a guarantee of g-ood faith.  *k.n effort is being made to organize  a tennis, club . in Greenwood. Mr. J.  Sutherland, it is understood, has already kindly offered a site for a .court  on the Dundee addition for the season.  . Mr. Coates has a force of carpenters  at work on Mr. Hodgson's residence  at Midway. The founeation is already  laid and the work will be hurried forward. The building- is a two-storey  one of very neat design.  The Spokesman-Review is responsible for the statement that a compressor plant has been ordered for the Old  Ironsides claim in Greenwood camp  and that it will be sent in and installed  immediately.  Mr. and Mrs. Keightley returned on  Thursday from their "Honeymoon trip  to Spokane and on the same evening, a  largely attended reception-was held at  Midway, when the happy couple received the congratulations of their  many friends.  On Thursday la.st Mrs. Wilkins, who  resided on a farm about four miles below Boundary Falls, died suddenly of  heart disease. The deceased had been  a resident of the district for several  years and had a large circle of friends  and acquaintances. She leaves a husband and a family of five to mourn her  loss.  The Boundary Creek Mining & Milling Co.'s properties, the G.A.R. and  D.A., are showing- up well as the work  of opening them up continues. On the  G.A.R. 12 men are at work and the  showings continue to improve. One  shifts at work on the D.A." and the  results on this property are equally  satisfactory.  Mr. J. Murray, provincial timber inspector, visited Greenwood this week  and left to-day for Midway, his   inten  tion  being-  to  go  through  to  Vernon  and the Coast. Mr. Murray came in  from Marcus after visiting Kootenay,  and  is   collecting  royalties  from  the  mills using  lands.  timber  from  government  Mr. J. P. Graves, who last week visited the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  mines in Greenwood camp, spoke most  encouragingly of these properties in  particular and the Boundary Creek district in general upon his return to Spokane. He discussed the erection of  smelters and volunteered the opinion  that one or two would be erected in the  district shortly. Messrs. Farrell &  Midgeon are expected in the camp  shortly, to resume work on the Stem-  winder, but whether they will g-o on  with the  erection  of  their  smelter in  To Business Mew:  In  connection with "THE  TIMES"  we have how one of the most complete  JOB   PRINTING   OUTFITS  in the interior of the Province,    With new  o  power Presses, new Type, and a complete  stock of Printers' Stationery, we are in a  position to fill any orders for Jot Printing'  as reasonably, as satisfactorily, and as ex^  peditiously as can be done in Spokane or  on the coast A merchant who uses  " cheap and nasty " Stationery and Printing  does his business a serious injury/it is dear  at a gift* Let us fill your next order j then  compare our work and prices with others',  We guarantee you satisfaction.  ;>��*���     ^it.     *V4     j>V*  ���>>*"      ?nF      "Sii?      ����������"���  "Tlie Boundary Creek Times,"  GREENWOOD,   B.C.  view of the railway news cannot be ascertained until they reach here.  The Boards of Trade and other or-  g-anizations on the Coast are telefraph-  ing- the Government to grant aid for a  road from the Columbia river to Penticton.  The attention of incorporated mining  companies is again called to the fact  that any free miner's certificate held  by the company expires on the last day  of June.. After that date companies  must be possessed of a special certificate issued for $50 to a company having a capital less than $100,000 and for  $100 to a company having- a capital of  more than $100,000.  It is reported that the Custom' house  on the Marcus road will be removed  from Gilpin's to Grand Forks. This  will in a measure be a convenience to  freighters as the old method of dumping the freight out on the road was extremely unsatisfactory. The increasing trade of Greenwood demands the  establishment of a Customs' office here  so that freighters could bring in goods  from the railway without having to  unload and reload when half way to  their destination.  Mr. L,. v. Cuppage, the inspector of  roads and bridges, has travelled upwards of 800 miles per month for the  last three months. This gives an idea  of the a area of the district and the  amount of road building- that is required. .--..-'.  a  Livery and Feed  .Z"*>  99  ,ft i i  iA J-    -a fe^_3  CURRY BROS., Proprietors.  ���Me  ��.V/���  Saddle Horses SI.50 per day.

Owing to a number of the shafts being  full of water, Mr. Carlyle was prevented from examining some of the mines  as thoroughly as he desired ; but such  properties as the Mother Eode, the  Sunset, the Gold Drop, the Golden  Crown and the Jewel gave him' a f air  idea of the underground wealth of the  different camps visited., Mr. Carlyle  will next week visit Smith's camp and  continue until eveiw section of the district has been gone over. He expects  to remain,-here at least   another  week.  The Bullion Mining Co.  '  The first genera! annual meeting  of  the Bullion  Mining and  Milling  Co.,  (Et.

It  is   not   unreasonable to' suppose,, that  from- Dr.  Powell's visit some deals of importance  will result.    The  syndicate   he  represents have adopted a  policy  that  will  doubtless recommend  itself  to  people  here, of proving'thoroughly .any claim  the}' mn.y acquire.    Dr. Powell was accompanied as far as   Fairview   by   the  syndicate's-'expert, a.Mr. Mitchell, who  will   also visit Boundary Creek in  due  course provided that Dr. Powell is sufficiently well impressed with the showing- on the properties offered him.

Mr. Hobbs who is at present visiting*  the mines of Boundary Creek district  has had a large and varied experience  in mining. He was at one time sent  by a syndicate of English capitalists  to re-open an old Spanish mine which  had been previously worked several hundred years ago. The work proved a  decided success frcm a mining engineer's or an antiquarian's standpoint,  but after all the tunnels and crosscuts  Had been opened out it was found that  the ancient miners had taken all the  valuable ore therefrom. Mr.  found in the -mine a Roman  which he keeps as a memento  most unique mining enterprise  day. Mr. Hobbs has also followed his  profession in Mexico and other mining  countries.

M  6i��  u  m Et  p!'  It  I  V/ -  ���M-  I  The people of British Columbia of all  shades.of politics are strong in their  denunciation of the miserable fiasco  which took place at Ottawa last week.  Even the Coast people are dissatisfied  at the conduct of the promoters of the  Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Railway Co. A mass meeting] was held at  Trail City on Tuesday evening-. Hon.  D. W. Higg*ins presidedand he characterized the Vancouver & Eastern promoters, as a band of "impecunious  speculators from the Coast who, unless  they are bought off, will steadily refuse tp allow the Columbia & Western  railway to be< extended to Boundary  district.'' Other strong- speeches were  made; and a;r��sql^  passed, condemning the action of the  Victoriai Vancouver: & Eastern com-  pany andmrgiirig; upon^the government,  to grant aid to the Columbia & West-  .. ern road. ������ -���:������'  A meeting- was held i at Grand Forks  on Wednesday evening and a strongly  worded resolution was unanimously  passed.' It is reported that similar  meetings are being*, hejd;pn the .Goasti  The citizens of Boundary Creek district also forwarded to Ottawa a  strongly worded protest against the  plan of shelving railway construction  into the district for another year. On  Thursday afternoon a meeting was  held in Sansom & Holbrook's hall. Al-  , though the meeting- was hurriedly  called, so great was the interest in the  subject of railway construction that  nearly 100 persons were present. John  Haniill^ J.P;, was voted to the chair;  and ./Duncan Ross was appointed secretary. As it was considered wise to  forward, any resolutions which might  be passed by that day's stage, but  little speech-making- was indulged in.  The .following resolution,, moved by  .���Mr.\L>anib' and seconded by Mr. Guess,  was unanimously carried and telegraphed to Ottawa :  Whereas efforts have been .made by  perries at Ottawa to defeat the bill for  the construction of the Columbia &  Western railway from, the Columbia  river to Penticton ; and  Whereas the completion of said line,  38 miles of which are under construction and operation, while insuring the  openingof vast mineral deposits in and  about the Boundary Creek country that  are,at present inaccessible, would conduce to the prosperity and development  ',of British Columbia, and. advancement,  of the dominion as a whole :  Be it therefore resolved that the citizens of Boundary Creek district view  with alarm the efforts put forth to defeat the project for railway connection  and that they respectfully urge upon  the government the necessity for aiding the Columbia & Western -railway  during the present session.  Resolved, that copies of this preamble and resolution be telegraphed  Hon. Mr. Blair and Hewitt Bostock,  our representative;at.Ottawa.  Dr. Milne's unholy barg-ain,��� .which  he refused to stand by, is g-iven in detail   in   the   following  dispatch   from  Ottawa  Tlie agreement   which   Dr.  Milne, signed was to the effect that the  Columbia & Western would pay oyer.  $12,500 after the subsidy and charter  were awarded to them ; that $11,500-  more  would   be   paid  when   the  road  reached Boundary Creek ; $11,000 when  it got to Penticton ; $10,000 when it  reached Hope ; $10,000 more when it  got to the Coast. The- Columbia, &  Western promoters hold, that, this is,  the agreement which Dr. Milne refused  to stand by."  HASTEN   INCORPORATION.  Many citizens, of Greenwood who,  -were, led to believe that long* ere; this  they would be enjoying all the advantages of self-government, are wondering- why the government are;; delaying  the issuing of the letters patent. The  necessary papers were forwarded to .the.  Cbast some two or three months ago,  arid since then there has been, no explanation regarding the matteroiitside  a brief note from Hon. Mr. Pooley to  the effect that the matter would be hastened!. The government's conception'  of hasty a.ctipnjis evidently? not 'compatible with that of the people of  Greenwood, for the latter have come to  the conclusion that the former are extremely dilatory in the matter. Several reasons could be offered for the'delay, but the one that is most consistent  with the reputation: of the government  is thatithey. are anxipijSitp get as much  money as possible from Greenwood before granting it incorporation. Now  nearly all the liquor licenses in the  town: expire shortly after; July 1st,;'.and;  as niunicipalgoyefnnient cannot be introduced before that timev the; mpneyv'  " O','.

Then  again, the taxes on real property are  generally paid befpre June 30thvtp, save  the .discounts; and these will also gp in-  to the provincial treasury,'% Under the  provisions of the,Speedy:Incorporation  Acts a portion of this money may, be  returned, to the ne*wly-created municipality, as Sec. 16 makes it lawful for  the Iyietkenant-Governor in Council to  pay to the treasurer of the municipality  a ratable part of the real estate tax  collected upon property within the city  for the year 1897, proportioned to the "  fraction of the year during which the  city is governed by the charter issued  under authority of the Speedy Incorporation Act. With liquor licenses it,  is different, for the same act states that  " all licenses heretofore issued shall be.  valid until the expiration of the period  named in the same, and upon the expiry the re-issue shall be regulated by  the statutory provisions governing the  city."  The same paternal government show  their appreciation for the good order  maintained in Greenwood and the provincial police officer is removed to  maintain the peace at Fairview. We  feel grateful to the government for the  compliment it has paid to the people  of Greenwood but beg to point out that  there is probably no other town of its  size in the province and immediately  surrounded by such a large 'mining  district that enjoys the proud distinction of being free from the espionage  of a'.'provincial police officer.;. Even  Grand Forks which appears to be a  special favorite of the members of the  government is under-the eagle eye of  Provincial Officer Dinsmore even after  the town is incorporated. A person1 of  average intelligence unacquainted with  the orderly class of men who are denizens of Boundary Creek district would  be almost sure to come to the conclusion that there is surrounding Greenwood a large and populated mining  district where a provincial police officer  mightrbe. required, but the solons on  parliament hills Victoria, think differently and consequently a wail of anguish has gone forth because our officer  has gone to Fairview.  Coryell's new mining map of the  district can be purchased at H. B.  Munroe's book-store.

The,trial of J; P. Keene, who shot  and killed Matthew Roderick, did not  result in an acquittal, as stated in The  Times last week% Keene was tried before Mr. Justice McColl, without a jury,  and after all the evidence was heard  the Judge .formal^ found him guilty  of manslaughter and sentenced him to  one day's imprisonment.  Deputy Attorney-General Smith represented the Grown in the prosecution,  while  Keene  was defended  by  J.  P*.  McL/eod, of Midway, and  R.; Cassidy,  of  Victoria.      The���>' evidence   of    Dr.  Jakes, Thos. Graham,; Constables Cup-  page and Deans, -and Mr.   Keene  himself, brought put only the facts  which  have  already   been   published.    After,  hearing the  addresses, of  the  counsel  for both sides, Mr.  Justice  McColl reserved his decision for  a  day.    When  he delivered  judgment,   His  L/ordship  stated that after careful   consideration  of the evidence he  was   unable   to   account for the action of; the  accused  in  any manner   that  would  justify   him.  The deed wlis one  for  which   the law-  afforded no sanction.    He was  willing  to believe, however, that  the".'prisoner  felt  his   position   very   much,   and   in  passing;sentence he took into consideration the worry and expense which he  had incurred during  various  proceedings. > He. would take   the  position assumed by the provincial authorities, ���  that .the- case was one of 'manslaughter,'  and would inflict only a  nominal punishment.    His sentence /was one day's';  imprisonment, which had already been  undergone,, .so .; the (prisoner  was   discharged/;;'  ','/':/:! '','./���:  At the same court Fairfax > Haynes  was charged with stealing a horse from  Octave Herbert, of Okanagan Mission.  After hearing the evidence the jury  were a long time in considering the  case and finally'.'"brought in a verdict  of not guilty. Haynes was re-arrested  on a charge of stealing- an "outfit of  camp utensils and was arraigned before Price lOllisoii, -S.M. He" pleaded ���  guilty and was sentenced to four ;  months hard  labor in  the  Kamloops  Official Visitors.  Mr.. Justice McColl, Deputy Attorney-General Smith, and F.S. Hussey,  superintendent of provincial police,  spent several hours in Greenwood on  Saturday last. They came from Vernon and were on their way to Kootenay  via Marcus. Mr. Hussey visited his  officers at the different stations and inspected the jails and court-houses. He  has ordered some changes which will  take effect on July 1st. Mr. EHkins,  who was stationed at Greenwood, will  go to Fairview, while Mr. Brown, of  Midway, will act as special constable  here until the town is incorporated.  Mr. Deans, constable at Midway, will  be stationed at Oso3roos after July 1st.  .    Coryell's Map.

The   railway   news    from   Ottawa,  while discouraging  to   those  who   are  desirous' of securing the  necessary facilities for the production of the almost  illimitable wealth of  Boundary   Creek  district, is but the story of the, natural  result of the iniquitous railway policy  promulgated and followed  by the government of this  province.    For  years  past   that   government   has,     by    its  action, shown that  it  considered  that  its first duty was to   see  that  railway  adventurers should have the opportunity to fleece the public, the opening up  of the country..being a   secondai-y consideration.      Irresponsible   men  were  given enormous land grants  and  cash  subsidies and the right- to  delay  railway construction until they had secured  all that could possibly be obtained and.  the right to barter what should  never  have  been  granted  to  them.     Every  Toin, Dick and Harry  then  went  into  this .'.railway-subsidy.,'''    land-grabbing  business;'  consequently   the-...mineral.'  wealth of certain districts  was  forced  fo remain dormant  because cthere yet  remained a government  to  which   the  impecunious could go a-begging. These  adventurers appear to be  as  selfish as  they   are   rapacious,   and   when    the  loaves and the fishes are  within  their  grasp they quarrel among themselves.  If these bickerings, at Ottawa  had  resulted in honest liien recovering* their  dues, the general  public  would  have  been perfectly willing* to allow ,the disputants to ���pummel each other until the  next   Jubilee   year.       Unfortunately,  however,   Boundary   Creek   and  other  impbrtant districts of the province will  probably remain without -'railwaj7, connection for at  least another  year  because   nature   has   not    endowed" Dr.  Milne with sufficient  common sense to  know when he has been  offered a good  thing, or  because  K.   August  Heinze  has been so accustomed  to  having- his  own way that he wants   more   than   a  reasonable compromise.    We have not  sufficient information  at  this  writing  to know who is chiefly  responsible for  the   unseemly   squabble    at    Ottawa.  What concerns us  most  is  that  those  who have  been granted  subsidies  by  the  provincial  government   have,  by  their own stupidity and greed, lessened  the chances for securing the transportation facilities that are so urgently  needed.  Surely the time has arrived to,stop  the practice of placing the important  work of opening up rich sections of the  country in the hands of those who are  in the business solely for the purpose  of enriching themselves, not by the  legitimate profits from railway traffic,  but through securing subsidies and  land grants. If construction of, railways by the government is. impracticable, it were infinitely .better if the  present provincial government went  out of the business of dealing with  railways and railway enterprises altogether and paid the Dominion government its fair share for railway facilities which particularly benefitted the  province. Then the Federal government would not be hampered in its intentions by the importunities of those  who are rivals because of the concessions granted them by the provincial  government. l  Our hope for railway connection lies  with those who build railwa3rs as a  matter of business and not for the purpose of securing legislative favors. If  Mr. Corbin or General Brant will construct a branch line to tap this district  we can assure them that the people  her,e. are so disgusted with subsidy-  seekers and land-grabbers that they  will gladly welcome , a legitimate railway company and guarantee them the  large and increasing trade of the district. '."'-..".������'..  While the railway news is discouraging.,' the people of the district are  still confident. ..;. They .'know that its  mountains'are filled with wealth, and  .that after all it is only a question of  perhaps another year until some enterprising- railway company furnishes the  necessary transportation facilities.  ��*y  '**(?  r-\  Provincial Secretary's Office.
