GREENWOOD CITYr B.G, SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1897.  40  No, 14,  TOPICS   TOR'THE   WEEK.  rANY COMPLAINTS have been made of late by  passengers arriving in Boundary from, the Coast  that they have been obliged to pay for the carriage on the stage of their personal baggage, the  assurance of the ticket-office officials at Vancouver to the contrary notwithstanding. It would  be interesting to learn what 'arrangements, if  any, have been made between the C. P. R. and  Messrs. Snodgrass & Sons, the proprietors of the stage-line,  with regard to the matter, but unless the latter are remunerated by the railway company, or have undertaken to  carry passengers' luggage without consideration to weight  between the steamboat landing and theirdestination; it  can hardly be reasonably expected that they will do so.  The railway company "allows a passenger free transportation for luggage not exceeding 150 pounds in weight,  whereas 40 pounds is the limit allowed on the stage, and all  things considered 40 pounds is a liberal allowance enough.  However, we agree with those who feel that they have real  grounds for complaint to this extent:���that an explanation  is due from someone ; the C. P. R. either have entered into  an arrangement with Messrs. Snodgrass & Sons for the free  transportation of luggage weighing* tip to 150 pounds belonging- to passengers purchasing* through tickets, or they  have not. If they have, what do the stage people mean by  making* a charge ? if not, then the company's clerk at Vancouver is responsible for giving misleading* information.  On the occasion of .Mr. Cuppage's, the Inspector of Roads,  last visit, it was pointed out to him that the distance of the  road over the summit of Boundary mountain could be  materially lessened, furthermore the grade would be fair  less trying, by following up the north bank of Fourth of  July creek from where the stream is bridged and connecting with the Greenwood camp road near the Snowshoe  claim. The idea appears to be an excellent one and we are  glad to be able to say tnat Mr. Cuppage, who has hot yet  thoroughly determined the feasibility, of the proposed hew  route, will:dp so upon a future visit to the district within  the next three weeks, and if he then finds the difficulties  and the cost of constructing this short cut to be not too  great, the suggestion will be carried out. The wearisome  and steep climb over the summit is always disagreeably  anticipated by freighters and stage-drivers, who will doubtless fully appreciate any change for the better in the road.  M  �����!(���  Mr. F. August Heinze has by most people been regarded  as a shrewd man of business endowed with more than the  average allowance of common-sense ; but if we are to believe the report published last week in the Midway -Advance  this estimate of his character is utterly erroneous. According to the report, which was an account of an interview in  Montreal between the directors of the Midway Townsite  Co. and Mr. Heinze, the latter petulantly replied to a question concerning the movements of the Columbia & Western  R'y. Co., of which Mr. Heinze is the promoter and a managing director, with regard to the probability of the early  construction of a railroad to Boundary Caeek, that "the  people of the Boundary creek district had exhibited an unreasonable animus ag^ainst him and his railroad scheme  and that if they had supported instead of opposing the latter they would have had a railroad quicker than they were  ���Uikely to get one under present circumstances." As a mat-  |er of fact the people of this district have no grievance at  111, not have they ever expressed any feeling, against Mr.  \  'K - ,. .:���'���  Heinze personally. They look upon him simply as a very  fortunate individual who has most successfully " pulled the  leg " of the Government of British Columbia. To those  who know the ropes this may not be a difficult undertaking,  or praiseworthy to any special degree, but on the other  hand it does not necessarily in itself, call down upon the  perpetrator any particular condemnation. But even granting that our good friend Mr. Heinze's contention was correct, what on earth should it matter to him���so far as  building a railroad for the purpose of profitable investment  is concerned���whether he was held in abhorrence by the  people residing! in the country through which his ; road  would pass, or whether he was idolized? One could understand that public opinion might be a factor to be considered  in the case of competing lines, but unhappily this contingency is at present sufficiently remote. No; either Mr.  Heinze in his interview with the Midway Company's directors was trying pour passer le temps to palm himself off as  a misunderstood and hardly-used philanthropist (the role  doesn't suit him a bit) ; or he was sadly in need at the time  of a Carter's Little Iyiver Pill, for if it is true that the brain  is greatly influenced by the stomach, dyspepsia might be  responsible for the absurd childishness of his remarks.  We are pleased to note that has  been  made  an  outport of Customs under the survey of New Westminster,  and that Mr. James Sutherland, (the notary, in contradistinction to Mr. James Sutherland, the townsite proprietor,)  has been appointed Collector at that place, and will assume  his new duties on the 1st of July. The creation of this  office at Midway will prove a great boon to the people of the  district.. . -'���.������  '"if     "sjif  ���"to  In the year 1888 an Act was passed by the legislature  for the prevention of fire in unincorporated towns and villages. It is suggested that the Act might advantageously  be enforced in Greenwood at the present time. By its  provisions in any unincorporated town or village containing*  twenty-five inhabitants three persons may be elected to  serve as Fire Wardens for the period of one year. The  Wardens have authority to visit and inspect, at all reasonable hours, all buildings and erections in the town or its  vicinity ; to direct or regulate in the town the position of  stoves, fire-places, chimneys, stove-pipes, etc.���'.;. and further  direct that anything shall be done by way of precaution to  avert fire. If any person refuse to obey the directions of  the Fire Wardens he shall be liable to a penalty not exceeding fifty dollars to be recovered in a summary manner before any two Justices of the Peace, or in default a term of  imprisonment not to exceed fourteen days. In. view of the  probable early incorporation of the town the suggestion so  far as it applies to Greenwood is perhaps hardly necessary,  though the newly organized fife department will no doubt  look to it that all proper precautions are taken. We, however, commend the suggestion that this Act be enforced to  the people of the other towns  of the district.  Apropos of incorporation, notwithstanding the fact that  the necessary applications were forwarded to the Provincial  Government nearly two months ago, no information regarding the matter has been received save a brief note from the  President of the Council stating that the applications had  been received and that letters patent would be issued withj  out delay. It is probably safe to presume that the cause  for the delay is to be found in the fact that several of the  Ministers are absent from the Capital and that it is imposs*  Ibk t9 secure a meeting oj tfte Executive.  imiuujiw��ffi1miu��!tiMftUi-mWum'm����]^^ E  n  UE  r-='  '' ^^ZX^uniSAs^ru, i237".'-iJlS��r-T*a.  A R Y  ^ t5 r?  Ck 12 BK   TIMES  A  RAILWAY ASSURED.  iMaaaaeawB!  The early construction of a  railroad  into Boundary   Creek  district: is - now  assured.    The  Hon.   .Mr.    Blair,    the  Minister of Railways in the   Dominion  Parlia-ment announced to tlie House   a  few days ag-o that a subsidy, of $11,000  per .'mile would be given  to  the  Canadian Pacific rail way for  a read from  T_,ethbridg*e to; -Nelson, and that a  sub-.  sidy-���of- $8,000 per mile would be  given  to   an   independent  company  for  the.  construction of a railroad fx*om  Nelson  to Penticton.    Mr. Blair was  asked  if  this subsidy was  to  be  g-iven  to  Mr.  Heinze and he replied that the '.matter-;  was not finally settled.    The Rossland  Miner's   Ottawa    correspondent,   telegraphed,   however,   that  the  arrangement, is   as   g'Ood   as   closed  and the_  Columbia & Western, of which  Heinle  is the promoter, will  be .subsidised Qto  the   extent   of $8,000   per   mile.    Mr.  Blair also announced that it  was   the  intention of the Government  to  grant  further assistance so as  to' secure  the  the early construction of  a  road  frpm  Penticton to the Coast.    The   arrang-e-  meiits which Mr. Blair  lias   succeeded  in making with the   Canadian  Pacific  are sure to work most  advantag-consTy  in the development  of ���.'the;: West.    By  securing*   such   enormous  concessions  from the C.P.R., the Minister,of  Railways has earned universal  praise  and  admiration.    In his- statement to  Parliament, Mr. Blair said that in, consid-.  eration of the  subsidy  of $11,000  per  mile 'the   Canadian  Pacific   Company-  would make a larg-e cut in fre ig-ht rates.  on  special  articles.    Take  wheat   for  instance.    The  cut  in  rates   on   that  commodity will be 1% .cents  per  hundred pounds next year andll/z more the  year following*, making-3  cents  in  all  per hundred. On fruit g-oiiig- west there  will be a cut of 33 Vf per  cent.    Again  the company will give  to   the  g*ovem-  ment 50,000 acres out of its land  c-rant  of 250,000 of coal lands awarded to  the  British     Columbia    Southern.      This  50,000 acres will  be  selected  in  small  blocks,   the   Government  having-   the  first choice of a block.ahd the Company  the   second   choice.

If  the   Vancouver,   Victoria ���&   lOasterri  Company can   secure  a  subsidy  from  the. Dominion government  for  a  road  from the Coast to Penticton, American  capitalists are ready to build the road.  Taking* all these   facts   into   consideration, the outlook for  Boundary Creek  district is of  the   most  pro.niis-ing\ de-.  scription, as all the contemplated railways will materially assist in oiDening*  out the district.

This is one  week earlier than usual, but  the  Education Department decided to have the  schools closed on Friday next so  as to  leave the children free on Jubilee day,  which   is   the  Tuesday  following*.    A  public examination will be held   in the  Greenwood school on Friday morning*,  after which the,prizes will  be  distributed.    The Superintendent of   Education has issued  a  circular  requesting*  that the children be asked to contribute  towards assisting- iri the establishment  of the Victoria  Order  of  Nurses, and  sug-gested that the children  be  given,  a picnic in return.    Dr. Pope's sug-g-es-  tions have been followed at Greenwood  and to-chry the school children  are  enjoying- fiiei r picnic at Boundary Falls.  I Eoiriaion Day Celebration.  ' The ccmmittee who have charge of  the Anaconda Dominion Day celebration have arranged "for a big* day's  sports.} A chaileng:e was sent to Grand  Forks to'send a base-ball team to play  a match with an Anaconda team, but  as no reply was received .an effort is  now being*--made to induce a number of  Greenwood old-time players to again  g-et in to harness and try conclusions  with Anaconda. Greenwood has several batters and ball twirlers and a  creditable team could be easily secured.  A larg*e purse will be given to the winners of the drilling contest, so that  several crack drill men are expected to  compete. Horse-racing will also be a  feature" of the celebration.  The Provincial Mineralogist. ���  Mr. W. A. Carlyle, the Provincial  Mineralogist, spent the week at Camp  McKinney, Fairview and Rock Creek.  He thoroughly inspected the properties  in the different camps and is at present  at Midway preparing- his -report of  those districts. Mr. Carlyle will arrive  in Greenwood to-morrow and will spend  at least a week or ten days in the mining camps in the vicinity. An effort  should be made to afford Mr. Carlyle  every opportune** of seeing the mines  and claims in Boundary. His reports  when published will undoubted!}' be  good advertisements for the district.  Mr. W. H. Young-, representing- R.  1}. Brown of Spokane, visited the Tamarack claim last week. Sufficient work  has been done on the Tamarack to secure a crown grant and the ore-showings are of the most promising description. Mr. Brown has gone to England  in connection with his claims against  the Transvaal government. His offices  fi��4 those of   the   English   syndicate  which he  represents  will  be removed  from Spokane to Victoria.  Messrs. Robert  and  Hug-h Wood returned from Christina lake 011 Tuesday.

The Rossland Miner's correspondent telegraphs'"'that' the Victoria,  Vancouver & pastern Go. and the Columbia & Western Co. are both struggling for a subsidy, and that in consequence of the conflict Hon. Mr. Blair  intimated that rib subsidy would be  given for the road for another year.  This intimation of the Minister of  Railways, it is stated, will have the  effect of getting the 'companies.-'interested to come to some- agreement, by  which they will be in a better position  to ask the Dominion; government for  aid. The agitation at^.Qttawa.^for a  subsidy has disclosed the fact that  Charles Hynianj a prominent liberal  and business man. of Iyondon, Qnt.,  and Herbert Holt, of Montreal, are interested with Heinze in the Columbia  & Western Ry. Co. Mr. Byman is a  strong personal friend of Hon. Mr.  I^aurier and has considerable influence  at Ottawa.      .  FIRE   PROTECTION.  Owing to business meii being- unable  to get away from their stores, there  was but a small attendance at the  meeting in' the schoolhouse oh Saturday :evening. Those present, after  discussing the necessity for a department, adjourned until Wednesday  evening*. At Wednesday evening's  meeting- the citizens of Greenwood  were well represented. G. R. Naden  was appointed chairman aiid D. Ross  secretary. ' After a brief discussion a  resolution, moved by Mr. Seymour and  seconded by Mr. Munro, to ; the effect  that a volunteer lire department be organized, was carried unanimously. A  roll of volunteers was then opened and  22 signed. The following officers were  elected : President, G. R. Naden ; vice-  president, J. A. Russell; sec.-treas.,  D. C. McRae ; captain, J. W. Nelson ;  ��� first assistant,' H. B. Munro; lieutenant, M. ID- Frazee.  Mr. Hallett brought up the matter of  burning* the brush in and around the  city. He referred to the brush on the  other side of Anaconda and stated that  Mr. Wood had promised the Anaconda  Commercial Club to have it burnt.    .  Mr. Galloway explained that the  Anaconda Commercial Club had sent  Mr. Tholl to interview Mr. Wood and  that Mr. Wood had requested him to  gfo and see what they wanted. He did  so and suggested to Mr. Tholl that if  the Anaconda people would assume the  responsibility of setting* fire to the  brushwood he would hire two men to  watch it and use every precaution possible. Neither Mr. Wood nor himself  had received any intimation from Anaconda as to whether his offer would'be  accepted. Mr .Wood and himself ^were  quite ready to burn the brushwoG^i on  that understanding- at any time. Mr.  Naden, speaking* as an insurance man,  also spoke of the necessity for destroying- brush and other rubbish that  sur  rounded the town. They were a menace to its safety and went far towards  making- insurance companies refuse to  carry any Greenwood risks.  The officers were instructed to prepare rules and regulatiofts to govern  the department, and to hiake any arrangements they may , deem proper to  place the department oh a gfood -finanV  cial basis. The meeting then adjourned.    -_ ,  GREENWOOD AND VICINITY.  ;,. ; M.*_..Flaherty,   a r Rossland^ /mining,  man, is visiting- the different camps.  Thos. Nicholson, of the Kootenay  Bottling Works, Rossland, is in Greenwood, sizing up the situation with a  view to establishing bottling works  here.  Mr. Bennett, a Rossland. real estate  dealer, passed through Greenwood on  Thursday on his way to Rock Creek,  where he will endeavor to purchase  some properties.  C. E}. Williams, a Spokane hardware  man, was among* the visitors to Greenwood this week. Mr. Williams, while  full of business, moves around rather  slowly in consequence of his having  figured in the smash-up of the stage  owned by a g-entleman bearing the  same distinguished cognomen.  A large cougar whose curiosity overcame his judgment was on Monday the  victim of Charley Rendell's trusty-  rifle. The cougar was prowling around  the tent at Long- lake where Mr. Rendell and others were sleeping, when he  was chased into a tree by their dog. A  shot from a rifle sobTn completed his  career.    He measured oyer eight feet.  Mr.. William Gill, the inspector _of  Inland Revenue, after examining Rendell & Co.'s premises, decided to report  favorably on their application for a  bonded warehouse. The warehouse  will be established in the building to  the rear of the main store. It will be  re-fitted so as to make it as safe as possible. The bonded warehouse will be  a convenience not only to Rendell &  Co. but also to the general public, as it  will ensure the keeping on hand of a  large supply of dutiable goods. Mr.  Gill and Mr. Miller, the Vancouver  collector, left for Kootenay on Saturday.

The Winnipeg, one of the most promising properties in Boundary Creek  district and upon which capitalists  have been casting longing eyes for  oyer a j'ear, is .now tinder the control  of a joint stock company which has  been org*anized by W. F. Honey and  B. H. Beacher, two prominent bankers  of North Dakota. Messrs. Honey and  Beacher visited Greenwood about four  weeks ago and spent a week or more  with their experts at the Winnipeg'.  Since then they have been negotiating  with D. Mcintosh, of Greenwood, and  John Mack, of Spokane, the owners of  the property, with the result that a  strong company has been organized to  acquire and develop the property. The  particulars of the arrangements made  cannot be ascertained, but it is understood that Messrs. Honey and Beacher  have'so much confidence in the value  ' of "the property that they will purchase  all the treasury stock in order that the  company may at once have the necessary oinoneyto vigorously prosecute  the work of development. Valuable  machinery will be sent to the mine as  speedily as possible and no expense  will be spared in making the Y/inni-0  peg* a shipping* mine. ,  So much has already been written  about the Winnipeg that it requires  but little introduction now* It is situated in Wellington camp and joins the  Golden Crown, owned by the Brandon  & Golden Crown Mining* Co. The surface ore g-ave a general average of $30  to $40 in gold to; the ton, and this value  has been more than retained in the, two  shafts which have been sunk to the  depth of 55 feet and 35 feet respectively . Drifts and crosscuts have been  made and it has been thoroughly demonstrated that the niiiie contains a  seven foot ledg*e of this ���valuable ore.  Several tempting offers were made  to,Messrs."Mcintosh and Mack for the  Winnipeg, but they  always  held  out  for a cash figure in  the   neighborhood  bf:;$60,000. A representative of Marcus  Daly once secured the privilege of  working the property, but after, proving its great value ho satisfactory arrangements could be made.  Mountain Runaway.  Williams' stage, which runs between  Marcus   and Grand   Forks,   came   to  grief on Tuesday last and all of  those  who were riding in it were more or-less  injured.    The. stage is  a new one recently  imported from  the 'EJ'ast,   and  was supposed  to have  been specially  built for the heavy rokds over which it  has to travel.    As it was coming- down  a steep grade on the other side of Hall's  ferry, the brake broke and the  horses  were unable to hold it back.    The four  horses went tearing- down the steep incline, the driver making- frantic efforts  to check them.   To make matters worse  the reins broke,   and  then  the  driver  was helpless.    A turn in the  road was  soon reached, and the leaders going in  the wrong direction the stage was overturned.    One of the passengers was so  badly injured that he had to  be  taken  back to Marcus for medical treatment.  Another   passenger   who    was   badly  shaken up was R. R. Peiser, representing Simon Leiser & Co., Victoria.    He  reached    Greenwood    on   Wednesday  evening, but as he was  suffering- from  the  effects  of  the  perilous  mountain  runaway he returned  at  once  to  the  coast.

The shaft is down over 100 feet  and from the bottom is, being taken  exceedingly fine-looking* ore, carrying  native silver. "The I<ast Chance and  the adjoining claini^ the Republic^^nd-  two other claims belong to the Republic Mining Co., of y/hich Mr. .' "W. T.  Smith is manager. The Republic is  on the same lead as the I^ast Chance,  the ore being of a similar character.  A shaft about 100 feet in depth has  also been sunk' on the Republic. A  representative of a Chicago syndicate  visited the Republic Mining* Co.'s properties this week, and he was so favor-;  ably impressed with the; outlook that  he will probably buy at a good  -figure. Should the deal be made the  new owners will at once expend a large  amount of capital in developing all the  claims belonging to the company.  W:F  UNREASONABLE   PRICES.  Several representatives of outside  capital who have visited Boundary  Creek district during the last few  weeks have strongly criticized the  enormously high prices at which mere  prospects are being held. They state,  and with a good deal of force, that the  asking- of $80^000 or $100,000 for ah uik  developed claim will never encourage  capital tojcome into the district. Now  <fhat railroad connection in the near  future is practically assured, claim  holders are cautioned against jeopardising th'eir chances of securing the reward for their season of patient waiting by placing fictitious values on their  undeveloped properties. While Boundary Creek enjo}rs the distinction of  offering* greater inducements to capital  than possibly any other section of the  province, those interested in its mineral resources should not lose sight of  the fact that there are other mining  districts and that unreasonable prices  will have a tendency to drive intending  investors to less promising fields.
