TURING the session of 1897, the Ruckle BrosUand  was the subject of considerable discussion. It  was -clearly shown by Donald Graham and other  members of the opposition that Hon. G-. B. Martin had deliberately violated the provisions of  the leaner Act in order to grant Mr. M. H}. Johnson acting for Miss Davey, 67 acres of valuable  land situated on the Kettle River near the town of Grand  Forks. .-���  Oil the, 7th of December, 1891, Edward Ruckle and Francis -Ruckle pre-empted 640 acres of land on Kettle river.  The pre-emption was properly staked off and a plan filed  with Mr. Vv7". Dewdney, the then government agent. In 1893  Messrs. Ruckle Bros, had the land surveyed. Mr. J. A.  Coryell who surveyed the land, stated that he surveyed the  . 640 acres. Mr. Coryell included the 67 acres across the river  from the main portion of the land. It appeared however,  that he turned over his field notes to Mr. Latimer with  instructions to prepare a plan. Mr. Latimer neglected to  include the 67 acres and a crown grant was issued to the  Ruckle Bros, for 573 acres. But the Ruckle Bros, were  '., under the impression that the difference between the original pre-emption 640 acres and the amount crown granted  573 acres was due to the government having- made a liberal  allowance for the sinuosities of Kettle river. They fenced  a portion of the 67 acres across the river and cultivated the  land for several 3'ears. .  c  Every settler along.the Kettle river -v^as under  the impression that the land was Ruckle Bros'.    A few years afterwards Miss Davey acquired by purchase what   is  known as  the McConnell ranch.    She invested her money through one  10. M. Johnson of Victoria.    Johnson is a shrewd land spec-  viator and by some means or other he   became   acquainted  with the  fact  that  an  error had been made in the  plan of  the  Ruckle Bros' land.    The 67 acres had become  valuable  property  because   of   its   proximity   to the town of Grand  Forks.    He determined to secure possession   but   the Land  Act properly administered   proved  an insurmountable barrier.    TheLand Act of that date   distinctly  provided  that  land adjoining that  owned by an actual settler could not be  purchased unless the adjoining land was "unoccupied,un sur-,  veyed and unreserved crown land and unfit  For  cultivation."    Now this land had been occupied and cultivated by  the Ruckle Bros, for years but E. M. Johnson was  equal to  the occasion.    Acting-as attorney-in-fact  for  Miss  Davey,  he appeared before D. R. Harris, J. P., and made an affidavit that Miss Davey was an actual  settler   on   Kettle river  and   that the land was 'unoccupied, unsurveyed and   unfit  for cultivation.    Mr. Johnson first made application to purchase to Mr. Leonard Norris.    Mr. Norris is  built of better  clay than Hon. G. B. Martin and he at once acquainted the  Chief Commissioner with the facts connected wTith the land.  He pointed out that the  Ruckle   Bros,   had  cultivated  the  same, that it was near the town of Grand  Forks and  "��� that  this is the land Johnson wants to  buy   for   one   dollar   an  acre.    It seems to   me   the  matter  should be investigated  before the certificate of purchase is issued."  The reply was pre-emptory   and   it did   not   come from  Mr.  Martin   but   from   Mr.   Johnson   "be g*ood enough "  (^demanded Mr. Johnson " to refer the matter to the depart-  '&***imen.t here." -' * * "The matter can be easily adjusted bv  ���WJNlihe Chief Commissioner."  ���:-.-.-m �����  But the Land Act stood in Mr. Martin's way.  ,18th, 1896, W. G.   McMynn   wrote  to state that  On April  " the land  herein described is under cultivation and fenced."    On the  27th of April Edward Ruckle made a declaration that he  and his brother had cultivated the land for }rears. John A.  Coryell, Peter McCalium, S. Russell Almond, James Kerr  and Donald Graham, M. P. P., all wrote the Chief Commissioner pointing out the injustice of selling* the land and also  that it was being cultivated and therefore could not be leer-  ally sold under the Land Act.  But Hon. Mr. Martin issued the Crown Grant contrary  toihe provisions of the Land Act he was sworn to properly  and impartially administer. He issued the Crown Grant  against the evidence of his own officers arid prominent per-  sous-ln this district. An investigation was demanded in  the house and a whitewashing* committee was appointed by  the government. The committee whitewashed and Geo. B.  Martin remained Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works.  Hon. G:eo. B. Martin, Chief Commissioner of Lands and  Works owns a ranch in the vicinity of Kamloops. It is a  valuable ranch but according- to current rumor it was heavily niortgag-ed at the time Ruckle .Bros' land was sold to E-  M. Johnson for $1 per acre. At that time, an ugly rumor  was current in the city of Victoria to the effect that E. M.  Johnson had Georg-e B. Martin within his financial grasp  and that he was tightening- the screws. E. M.Johnson  would not be slow to take advantage of Geo. B.. Martin's  financial distress arid the violation of the Land Act was the  heavy price paid for further financial accommodation. Now  that was an ugly rumor ; we do not know if it was true; for  the sake of the province, for the sake of Geo. B. Martiri who  is.person-ally a good fellow we sincerely hope that the ugly  rumor was devoid of truth. But Geo. B. Martin is a public  man.' If he uses��his public position in connection with his  private affairs,.he should be relegated to private; life.  Now for the strange coincidence. �� On April 14th, 1896r  E. M. Johnson wrote his pre-emptory letter, to Leonard  Norris telling him, the matter could be easily adjusted with  the Chief Commissioner. The Chief Commissioner knew  the responsibility attached to his position and was evidently  of the opinion that the matter was not so easily adjusted.  He determined to satisfy Mr. Johnson in an honest way.  He would realize on his ranch.  On April 22nd, 1896, the Chief Commissioner writes the  following* letter to W. Wood, Indian agent at Kamloops :  (Private.)    .  Lands and Works Dep't, B.C., Chief Commisioner's Office.  Victoria, April 22nd, 1895.  W- Wood, Esq.,  Dear Wood:���The priest "Father Le Juene" has written  me about selling my place to the Dominion government for  the Indians on my side of the South Thompson. He also  wrote to Ottawa about it. Now I have seen Vowell about it  and he tells me if he is written to about it he will have to-  ask you to report on it. NOW GIVE IT AS FAVORABLE)  A REPORT AS YOU CAN. The land is first class and  plenty of it, three creeks, all land fenced, good ditches,  nearly 900 acres, good building-s and garden and orchard,  etc. etc.  Vowell also told me that it would have been better if  the application for it came from you, say at request of the  Indians. On my side of the river the I. Reserve joins my  land, and they have no water on, it, and on Ross's side of  the river the land is very poor and a scarcitv of water. DO  WHAT YOU CAN FOR ML ABOUT THIS AND YOU  WILL BE CONFERRING A FAVOR ON ME. Mara  would help me all in his power, I'm sure. PLEASE LET  THE MATTER BE PRITATE and drop me a line at your  earliest convenience.    Kind regards.    Yours very truly,  GEORGE B. MARTIN.  ���On April 24th Mr. Leonard Norris wrote Hon. G. B.  Martin, inclosing Mr. McMynn's very emphatic declaration  that part of the land (which Mr. Johnson desired to purchase) "is under cultivation and fenced."    Four or five days  (Concluded on page 4.)- i.  ^^wwir-jsrKSffiw--^  ��<>;  THE   BOUNDARY    CREEK   TIMES  A   STRANGE   COINCIDENCE.  (Continued from pag-e 3.)  would carry this letter  to   Hon.   G. B.  Martin at Victoria.    On April 30 Hon.  G. B. Martin wrote again as follows:  (Private.)  Lands and Works Department, B. C.  - Victoria, B. C,  April 30th, 1896.  Dear Wood:���-I have spoken to Mr.  Vowell and he is willing to assist me  in the matter. Mr. Mara will also do  the best he can, The reason for showing* the .advisability for the purchase of  the land is that the Indians on the east  side of the North,,Thompson near my  ranch have no water whatever for irrigation purposes. I do not like the idea  of mentioning the matter to Tom Graham, but if you will recommend the  matter strongly to Mr. / Vowell it can  be arranged satisfactory.  IN REFERENCE TO THE TAX  MATTER I HAVE SEEN MR.  BOOTH AND HE WILL PUT THE  MATTER OFF AS LONG AS HE  CAN, probably to the end of July.  You will notice that the taxes have not  been paid since 1892.    Yours truly,  GEO. B. MARTIN.  W. F. Wood, Esq.,. J. P.,���'���'.'  Kamloops, B. C.  June 23rd arrived. It was a memorable day in Canadian history. On  that day the conservative government  met with a decisive defeat and neither  ;Mr. Mara nor Mr. Vowell, nor Mr.  Wood could after June 23rd, assist Hon.  Geo. B. Martin in selling his land to  the Dominion government.  If Hon.   G.   B.   Martin   owed E. M.  Johnson   money   the   Dominion   elections of  June 23rd closed his last loophole for escape.    The fiat was  issued.  The   land   act must, be  violated.    The  order was short and decisive.    It came  three days after   the   Dominion   elections !    three days|necessary to secure  full returns and to make the assurance  doubly sure that no help  could be  expected   from   the    Dominion   government.    On June the 26th,   W. S. Gore,  deputy Commissioner   of   Lands   and  Works   telegraphed   Leonard   Norris,  Vernon.    "Please   expedite    business  referred to the  Chief  Commissioner's  letter 16th inst, regarding Miss Davey's  application made by E.   M.   Johnson."  Six-seventy acres of  valuable land,  with a crop of oats   standing   thereon,  adjacent to the town   of  Grand Forks,  passed into the hands of E.   M.   Johnson for sixty-seven dollars.  Customs   Seizure.  : For some time past, it was reported  that business men were evading the  Customs and Inland revenue dues. A.  K. Stuart, the collector of Inland Revenue went over to Grand Forks last  week and on Satuida3*- siezed two and  a half pounds of Durham tobacco in  the possession of H. A. Henderson, ,of  Grand Forks. On Monday Mr. Henderson appeared before Police Magistrate Johnson and pleaded guilty. He  was fined ��550 and costs.  *��w*-qE-*crgTlSR'--g^rj-ra**rffae^  MISS   O.

Hay ward has been elected  treasurer, assessor and collector of the  town of Grand Forks.  A. W. Smith, a Rossland mining*  man visited Greenwood this week and  invested in city real estate through the  Bealey Investment and Trust Company- \  Police Magistrate Hallett, Mr. G. R.  Naden and Mrs. Naden returned from  Vernon on Saturday last. Mrs. Hallett went; to Vancouver where she will  spend a brief holiday.  A meeting of the householders and  their wives will be held in the school  house to-day for the purpose of electing a school trustee, Mr. Phelan's term  of office having just expired.  W. S. Fletcher, the druggist, returned last week from Toronto where he  purchased a large stock of drugs and  druggists sundries. He makes an interesting announcement in another  colunin.  W. H. Young and Geo. B. McCauley  of Spokane arrived in Greenwood on  Wednesday. They are after mining  property. Before returning Mr. McCauley will visit the Cariboo at Camp  McKinney. ''-;- ,*���/:  The Dominion Day celebration committee was- out canvassing for subscriptions this week and met with good  success. The citizens subscribed liberally and an excellent celebration is  now assured.  The Bealey Investment and Trust  Company has purchased the Barbara  mineral claim from Rendell & Co.  The Barbara adjoins the Townsite on  theG South side. It contains some excellent residential lots.    -  Wm. Cole, the well known Spokane  mining man is developing some of his  properties in the district. Mr. Cole  has completed the assessment work on  two claims in Copper camp and is also  working on some claims in Skylark,  camp.  Aid. C. Scott Galloway who left last  week for Taconia returned from Marcus on Tuesday. Upon arriving at  Murcus he found that the ore from the  Strathmore had not yet been forwarded to Taconia and consequently it  would be useless for him to go there to  make arrangements for its  treatment.  The machinery for the Boundary  Creek Milling & Lumber Co's. new  saw niill reached Grreen-wpodithis week.  While being hauled to the mill site at  Eholt creek the big boiler got mired  near Thos. McDonnell's ranch. Owing  to the recent rains and government  neglect, th^. road is in a very bad condition. An ox team the first seen in  Boundary Creek came in with the saw  mill and will be used for logging.  W. B. Townsend,, the returning officer for the Rossland district made a  tour through Boundary Creek last  week for the purpose of appointing  deputy returning officers and arranging for polling booths. Polling places  have been established at Rossland,  Trail, Cascade, Grand Forks, Greenwood and ��� Midway. W. G. McMynn  was appointed deputy returning officer  at Midway and Andrewi Eeamy at.  Greenwood.  %. Spraggett and R. Wasspn of  Grand Prairie were visitors at Greenwood this week.  F. Keifer,.manager of the B. C. Copper company, is advertising- in this  issue for wood for fuel for the Mother  I^ode mine.  A great many prospective buyers  visited Greenwood during the week.  Many enquiries were made for real  estate and a few lots changed hands.  Some mining deals are also being  negotiated.  John Murray, the: provincial timber  inspector made his half yearly visit to  the mills in the, district last week.  Owing* to the largely increased business done by the saw mill Mr. Murray  secured a considerable sum of money  in timber dues.  aacaassetzBE  jmjrl,!*   ir^HM^!"���?"T"M��*.lt' ��JlTtTTJ��r���-W  Established 1362.

The  Knob'Hilland Old  Ironsides are  owned  largely in  Montreal.    There   are,,two  companies, but  the parties  interested   are   mostly the  same,   and   as   the   properties  lie tog-ether, they  are  to be developed  together.    S. %. Rigg is president of the  Old   Ironsides   company, and  George  Wooster is  secretary.    S. P. Miner, of  the���Granby Rubber Works, of Eastern  Canada is the principal stockholder in  both companies.  "I am also interested  in the City of  Paris group iri White's camp, Boundary   Creek  district.    The��� group comprises the City of Paris, Lincoln, Number Four and City of Denver claims. A  crosscut tunnel   is  being run   on the  City of-Paris, which wjll cut the ledge  at a depth of 375 feet after running 600  feet.    This tunnel is now  in  200  feet.  We have  put in- waterworks,   erected  an office and other buildings and have  "built a new road.    A compressor plant  will  probabLy  be   put   in   later.'    Mr.  ���Whitney, of the Whitney Glass Works  at Glassboro, N.-.-J., one. of  the  oldest  glass factories itl America, is  interested in the City  of Paris.    I expect both  Mr. Whitney   and Mr.   Miner   to   visit,  the properties next mouth."  School Closes. -������    -  The happiest people in Greenwood  to-day are the school children.

In company  with James Kerr, J. P., Mr. Martin  visited Grand Prairie and found all  the settlers opposed to the Turner government. In Upper Grand Forks the  same feeling exists. In the lower town  there are a few government supporters,  but the majority of those are Americans without yotes. On this side of  the mountain it is a very difficult matter to find a government supporter.  Before leaving for the Boundary  Creek district Mr. Martin held a public meeting in Rossland. It was largely  attended. In Rossland the feeling  against the government is almost as  strong as in Boundary Creek. The  concensus of opinion throughout the  district is that the government candidate will not save his deposit.  Mr. Martin will return to Rossland  next week. He is making a very favorable impression throughout the district, the people being satisfied that he  will carry out his election pledges and  he is pledged to a platform that recognizes the political rights of Boundary  Creek district.

The pioneers of the province, the  men who roug-hed it in the early days  will" doubtless appreciate the following*  from J. Fred Richtie, the government  heeler, and published in the last issue  of the Grand Forks Miner.  "The nomination of James Martin,  by the Rossland convention, I find distasteful to a large number of the electors of the district, to a majority of  whom, he is a comparative stranger.  -A large per cent of those with whom I  conversed look upon him as an aiimir-  able type of that element in British  Columbia that is rapidly dying out,  namely: The Frazerites and Cariboo-  ites���who never seem to appreciate the  fact that British Columbia has got beyond the early daj'S of '58 and '60 ;  twenty }rears behind the times in his  estimate of the political problems of the  day ; and has no influence in the Boundary district, where he is only known  to a few of its residents who happened  to come from Vernon"; who have no  hesitancy in saying that Mr. Martin  views thing's rather from a selfish  stand point than that of progress ive-  ness of the Rossland and Boundary  country."  SHARP   PRACTICE.  'i  The Ve-rnonvNews' has adopted the  tactics of. the govern merit tooters in  other parts of the province. The record of the Turner government is so bad  that it is kept in ,the background and  an effort is made..to. win the election  by a campaign ������ of   misrepresentation.  The government supporters   in   the  vicinity of Vernon and the Vernon  News are entitled . to first place for  political meaness and sharp practice.  When Donald Graham; M. P. P., was  lying ,on a sick bed, seriously ill and  unable to defend himself they industriously circulated the report that he had  refused to run. Fortunately Mr. Graham has sufficiently recovered to carry  onj an aggressive campaign and now  the Vernon News innocently inquires  '���'what made Mr. Graham change his  -mind?'' The News is very badly mistaken if it thinks that Price Ellison is  going* to win votes by attempting* to  secure political advantage through an  opponent's'illness.  After all no better treatment could  be expected from the government supporters or government organs in Fast  Yale. To be forced to support the  Turner government is discouraging  enough but to be forced to endorse  Price Fllison is sufficiently exasperating* to make ordinary people forget the  amenities of" life.  Fortunately' Donald ' Graham will  save Fast ,3Tale from Price Fllison.  The latter,"S eagerness for a position  for whichThe is' in no way qualified will  cost him his $200 deposit.  Visitors  to  Greenwood.  A. G. McCandless, one of the leading-  business men of Victoria, W. G. 'McKenzie, traveler for the well known  hardware firm of Wood, Vallance &  Co., Hamilton, and Mr. Johnson, a  Vancouver traveler, drove in from  Fairview on Monday last and spent  several days in the city. Mr. McCandless is the owner of some valuable real  estate in Greenwood. He was very  much delighted with the town and decided to not sell his property although  he received inducements-to do so.  The party tell an excellent political  story. Haying heard of the solid opposition feeling in Fast Yale, they determined to make inquiries. Fvery  person whom they met was asked if  there were any government supporters  in the district. The answer was always an emphatic "No," until Midway  was reached. The same inquiry was  instituted there and the answer came  "Well there was a government supporter here last week but he has since  left the district."

Mr. E. A. Hamilton the Eand Commissioner of the C. P. R. with headquarters at Winnipeg*, his private secretary, E. W. Russell, and R. T. Wil-  gress, Vancouver, reached Greenwood  on Sunday last and spent until Wednesday in looking* over the country  through wThich the C. P. R. will be  constructed. In company with Mayor  Wood of Greenwood they visited Mid-  'way and several of the mining camps  in the district.  The object of Mr. Hamilton's visit  was to arrange for the right of way  through the district. He showed a  willingness to do every thing- in his  power to meet the wishes of the people  and expressed himself as being surprised at the vei-y progressive and substantial appearance of Greenwood. It  occupies a commanding situation as  far as the mining- camps are concerned  and is' sure to. become a very important  centre on the line of the C. P. R.  Mr. Hamilton returns to Winnipeg  in a few days where he discusses town-  site and other matters with officials of  the road.  Mr. Hamilton ridiculed the idea that  the C. P. R. would endeavor to give  established towns the "go by " as pessimists are pleased to express themselves. The C. P. R. is after business  and if there is a business centre already established along the line of railway it will receive every consideration  at the hands of the C. P. R.  WILD   STATEMENTS.  According- to the Grand Forks Miner  Editor Ross asserted at the Rossland  convention that Messrs. Hay and McCallum could not trust any member of  the Grand Forks delegation with their  proxies. Mr. Ross' statement referred  only to the three delegates who objected to his having Grand Forks' proxies.  We fully agree with the Miner in its  reference to Mr. Spraggett but we are  also    forced   to   the,   conclusion   that  Messrs. Hay and McCallum showed  excellent judgment in not trusting*  their proxies to the tender mercies of  Messrs. Davey, Manly and Addison.  Really the Miner should be more careful in its statements. It says Messrs.  Hay and McCallum's action " will lose  for Mr. Martin fifty votes in Grand  Forks." Now that is a very wild  statement to make since the revised  voters' list is cruel enough to limit  Grand Forks voting power to 48 votes.  Does the Miner expect to vote some of  the irresponsible Americans who are  making themselves obnoxiously busy  in this election ?  A small town is springing* up in  Greenwood camp. A general store has  been opened by Messrs. Winkop and  Stevens and application has been made  to the post oflice department for a post  office to be known as Brooklyn. As  there are a large number of men now  working- in Greenwood and Wellington  camps, the application for a post office  ought to be favorably considered.

Father Palmer will conduct  services in the new Catholic church tomorrow. The church is about completed and has a very imposing appearance. It stands on a knoll overlooking the city and is very neat in design.  High mass will be celebrated in the  morning. There will also be service  at three in the afternoon and again in  the evening. The public are cordially  invited to be present.  AMERICAN   NEWSPAPERS.  "It was due in part to the fact that a  number of newspapers were established on the mainland by gentlemen from  the United States, who were unfamiliar with Canadian or provincial politics, and like all new comers were quite  ready to believe that they had a heaven inspired mission to right an innumerable number of wrongs. The language which these papers indulged in,  when speaking of the Hon. Mr. Turner  and his colleagues, was was of a kind  with which, happily the people of Canada are not familiar."  The above is from the Colonist. It  was written by a man who recently  boasted of his loyalty to American institutions. He forgot to add that the  gentlemen from the United States are  still in the province and that they bull,  dozed the government into paying for  their support.  POLITICAL   NOTES.

J. P.   'A free miner carrying- a revolver from his  claim   at   Rock   Creek to  GreenWood; to  have it  repaired   was  arrested   by   Officer Gardom, tried before a .justice of the  peace,   and fined.  The whole proceeding- might Have been  within; the strict letter of the law since  as far as we could learn officer Gardom  did not handcuff nor  legirqriT his  prisoner, but every reasonable person will  come to the conclusion thcit the  law  is  adminstered   to   an   absurd   limit   in  small things.    If things continue as at  present ordinary citizens must-provide  themselves with permits  to  bi'eathe if  they do not wish to run the risk of falling   into   the   clutches   of  provincial  police, officers. =.;.  At the other side of the district officials appear to have similar lofty conception of their own importance as*  Messrs. Oakes and Aris of the telephone company can testify. Thes two  gentlemen reached the Custom house  at Cascade City one night last. week.  The Customs officer told them to Wait  until morning when he would be pleased to  examine  their  small  amount of  bag-g-a^-e which they carried with them  in a light buggy. Being, busy men  they declined the official's invitation to  remain at Cascade over night and  pushed through to Greenwood. On  their return, they were arrested by officer lyawder and the Customs officer-  was generous enough to let them go  after a severe reprimand.  This too may have been strictly within the letter of the law but we were  always of the opinion that the officers  paid by the public were the servants of  the public. We must now admil that  we were mistaken and that it is the  duty of all residents and outsiders doing business in this district to worship  at the shrine of Snobbish officialism.  THE   GOVERNMENT'S   STRAW   MAN.  John McKane is the choice of the Independent g-overnment convention.  His opponent was Richard Armstrong  and Richard Armstrong needed only  two votes to carry the convention.  Richard was the choice of the Manly  gang unfortunately for Richard. John  JZanly tried to unload him on the opposition convention but without success.  The government supporters in then-  extremity almost fell into the nieshes  of John Manly's very clumsily laid  trap. Any w:iy John McKane is the  choice. Most Boundary people have  met John McKane. He was over here  some 10 days ago. Those who met  him will agree with ns that he will  make an ideal independent government  candidate. An independent government candidate is a man of straw, a  paid footer, a thing to throw in the  breach. He is exhibited to the electors  by the organs and the designing professionals. A candidate is a necessity  because the return of an opposition  nominee by acclamation looks bad.  For the purposes for which he is intended no better selection than Mr.  McKane could be made. He is provided with a good pair of lungs and can  make considerab le noise and the making-of noise is his chief duty.  We hope that Mr. McKane has a  hard and fast agreement with the government and that he will secure a quid  pro quo for his sacrifice. The Turner  government ought to pay handsomely  for fourteen stone of Scotsman.  There are two classes of people who  will vote for the independent government stalking horse���the fools and the  knaves. The former because they  haven't sufficient capacity to appreciate what is in the public interest and  the latter because their highest conception of politics is the pecuniary advantages that are illegally distributed  during an election contest.

I  1'  The Grand Forks Miner is  responsible for  the   silly   rumor   that   Mayor  Wood of Greenwood pledged  the  vote  of   the    Boundary,,: Creek   district   to  James Martin of Rossland oh condition  that Martin   Bros,   would   open   up a  hardware   store   in   Greenwood.    The  rumor   is without a ^scintilla of truth.  The   Boundary .' Creek,    country    was  pledg*ed  to   no   one. ! When delegates  were appointed at Greenwood and Midway Mayor Wood was absent from the  district.    He   did   not   know   how   the  delegates were going to vote  and does  not know how   they  did   vote.    Mayor  Wood made   not  the slightest effort to  advise  or dictate to the delegates  how  their votes should be cast.      ,  , The assertion that  if   "Jim  Martin  opens a hardware   store at Greenwood  he will doubtless get the vote  of  that  town and at the same time he will lose  60 per cent, of the votes of the balance  of the district,   and  vice  versa," is as  silly as the statement that ."there is no  principal at stake but just a matter of  purely personal interest.''    The voters  of Greenwood cannot be purchased by  a hardware store, neither can  they be  divorced from an   uncompromising opposition   ag-ainst  the  Turner  government  by-the erection of  half-a-dozen  hardware stores by   James Martin   in  Grand Forks or  anywhere  else.    The  Miner   has   lived    so   long-   in Grand  Forks   that it is evidently of the  opinion that every elector deems it his duty.,  to knife his neighbor  and   plunder the  public.  The editor of the Miner should study  the voters'.list before it makes any calculations. Its . decision'" that James  Martin will get the vote of Greenwood  if he builds a hardware store and 40  per cent, of the balance of the district  is rather hopeful for James Martin  considering that this calculation conies  from a newspaper that is unpatriotic  enough to work for the enemies of  Bouudar3r Creek. The voters' list  shows IIS votes in the city of Greenwood. This and .40 per cent, of the  balance of the votes in the district  would give James Martin 75 of a majority !������'...  The Miner having no excuse to offer  for deserting* the fight for Boundary  Creek and having no argument to use  against James Martin's candidature  has returned to its old habit of publishing-palpable inaccuracies.  MIDWAY   NOTES.  |SIMCCIAI,  COI'RERroXDENCK.I  On   Saturday   last   F.   A.   Davis,   a  prospector, was arrested by Provincial  Constable G-ardoni for carrying  a.gun  . attached, to his saddle   and   summoned  before  W.   H.   Norris, J. P,   publisher  of the Midway   Advance, and   fi ne< 1 $5 .  nn I   costs.       Although   the    evidence  showed    that   Mr.   Davis   was   simply  carrying  the   gun, for   another   party,  to the owner in Greenwood, that it.was.  not loaded, and he had not   any   shells,  in his possession while  freighting   the/'  gun iw.'in Canyon -.-reek to Greenwood,  the local D.vniei lined   him.    If   this is  the law, every freighter in the country  is liable to arrest by some ha If-witted  constable and fined by an equally intellectual j ustice of the peace.  There,was a government supporter  here during the past week. He was a  very young*', man, both in years and  in intellect. He hailed from Rossland.

A meeting of the government supporters of the district was held in the  office of C. W. H. Sansom, Del., on  Monday last, for the purpose of electing delegates to the Rossland convention, which was to be held on the Tuesday following. An Associated Press  representative, who asked for admission, was polite^ told that the meeting- was private, but that a report  would be given out for pubUcation.  The following copywrighted report was  purchased by The Times, and lest we  should be accused of party prejudice  ���     we give it in full:  GOVERNMENT  MEETING.  In   response   to   an   advertisement,  which   appeared   in   The;   Boundary  Creek Times, and which was paid for  under special warrant, the g'O vera men t  supporters residing in   Greenwood and  surrounding district, assembled in the  office  of  C.   W.   H., Sansom, Del., for  the purpose of electing delegates to the  Rossland    convention.       There    were  present Andrew Iyeamy, solicitor.   Mr.  Iyeamy was a pronounced oppositionist  -    until   the   arrival   of     the    Rossland  "push"   last   week.     Mr.   Gerald  T.  .Hodgson,   an   erstwhile J. P., but now  familiarly   known   as   "Jerry,"   was  also present.    Present also was Krnest  Miller, the government organizer and  sub-treasurer of the government  campaign nfund.    E)va    Smith   jjwas    also.  present.    From the name   it  might be  supposed   that   the   government   supporters in this district were using their  powerful influence to establish women's  rig-hts, but   " I0va " is an   abbreviated  CQgnomen.    On    the   voters'   list   the  c: name appears as " iDvelyn."    This tip-  lifts the name, if not the wearer, from  the depths of effeminacy.  Lest the impression should get  abroad that there were no other government supporters in the district, a  rather full report is given of an interesting discussion which took place  in the early part of the meeting.  Mr. Iveamy���Mr. Chairman (Mr.  Hodgson having been elected after a  close contest) I desire to point out  that we are still without a quorum.  Now, Chief Justice Coleridge, an authority with which I am quite-f amiliar,'  and doubtless you all are, has laid  down the rule that it takes five to constitute a quorum. Are there no other,  government supporters in the district ?  Mr. Hodgson���I have been credibly  informed that there is one other gov-:  eriiment supporter in the district, one  Adolphus Ferguson, commonly known  as " Fungus."  Mr. Iveamy���He should be present;  he.places us in a rather awkward position.  Mr. Miller���Gentlemen,, if you will  allow me. You cannot stop to consider  the very fine point raised by Mr.  Iveamy. Political exig-encies demand  that delegates be sent from this district. The government is not bound  by law or precedent. [Copious applause.]  Mr. Hodgson���This matter being  satisfactory settled by the sub-  treasurer, we better appoint  delegates  at once'     [More copious applause.]  Mr. Miller���While not a resident Of  Greenwood,, I think you will allow me  to nominate Mr. Andrew Iyeamy.  [Tremendous applause.]  ,  Mr.   Hodgson���Mr.  .I^eamy   was appointed a deputy returning  officer this,  morning, and is. therefore  disqualified  from   acting  as   a  political  partisan.  [Murmurs of dissent.]  Mr. Miller���I am again commissioned  by the government to remind you that  under the circumstances, no other  name being available, it is Mr. L/eamy's ,  duty to go to work in the> service of the  government.  Mr. Hodgson���-Very well, that settles  it.    Any further nominations ?  Mr. Miller���I beg to nominate, yourself, Mr. Chairman.  There being no further nominations,  Mr. Miller said : "I beg* to make the  nominations unanimous."    Selah !  The nominations were made unanimous. '  Mr. Iveam'y-What about the expenses  of the delegates ?.-'.'���    ���  Mr. Miller���I am commissioned to  attend to  that.    (Uprorious applause.)  The meeting then adjourned.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held in the court house, on-  Monday evening last. , His Worship,  Mayor Wood, presided and the following* aldermen were present: Aid. Parry, Patpn and Phelan.  Messrs. Smailes, Munroe and Ross,  a committee from Boundary Valley  Iyodge, I. O. O. F. interviewed the  council with reference to deciding upon  a proper site.for a cemetry and clearing and improving the same.  The council as well as the committee  were of the opinion that the present  site is too near the city and also that  an effort should be made to make the  cemetry more presentable. Mayor-  Wood and Aid. Paton were appointed  a committee to work with the committee of the Oddfellows. Mayor Wood  offered to donate another site if a more  suitable one.could be secured on the  company's property.  The following bills were ordered  paid : Russell Hardware Company,  hardware and police instruments, $46.-  70; W. Breckle3', street work .50; Boundary Creek Times, printing, $13.
