VERYONE who is interested in Boundary Creek  district is also interested in the develop-  s ment of its vast mineral resources. The  future of the district is entirely dependent'  upon its hidden wealth, consequently the  individual as well as the community should put  forth every effort to place the mines in such a  position that they will attract the attention of  capital necessary to development upon a large scale. .Those.,  who appreciate the necessity for securing the introduction  of a large amount of capital into the district must' be impressed with the force of Mr. Hall's remarks in last week's  , Times, that " this is the best mining district of all, with  the poorest work." When this remark is taken with another  made by an experienced representative of capital,���that  there were more purchasers for developed properties than  there are properties developed,���:the course to be pursued  must be clear to those owning claims in the district. Capitalists have been taught some very salutary lessons by the  experience of the past few years in mining, and conse-  . quently they do not invest to-day in surface showings ; they  must have something more tangible upon which to base the  ivorth of the property in which they are asked to invest  their money. It is true that several of those owning claims  have not the means to carry out development work, but it is  equally true that more development work might be done.  Take the B.C. mine in Summit camp for instance : It was  located last spring, and a few hundred dollars spent in development work exposed a large body of rich ore. No sooner  was this known than several representatives of capital were  at the mine negotiating with Messrs. Keough & Sons for  its purchase. We are confident that there are in Boundary  Creek a score of claims just as rich and just as extensive as  the B.C. which, by the expenditure of a little capital and  labor, could be made sufficiently attractive to tempt trie  capitalist to invest his money. Boundary Creek district  needs development work as well as a railway.  *t&.  ��le-  ��"���'��.  ���5ji��      i^      ?a>  A   GHEEKY   REQUEST.  Each of the merchants of Greenwood  was ��� last week the  recipient of the following communication from the   auditor  of the Spokane Falls & Northern railway :  " Mr. E- D. Morrison has informed us that he holds an  order from you covering delivery of bonded and other freight  at Marcus consigned to you. Owing to the fact that- this  company is held responsible for freight in bond until same  is delivered beyond the boundary line, we have arranged  with Messrs. Mitchell Bros, to haul all bonded freight destined to Kettle river points handled by our line. Will you  kindly, cancel order to Mr. Morrison as far as it applies to  bonded freight, and route  all   bonded  freight  via  Marcus  and Mitchell Bros.' wagon line.  Freight  not  in   bond   we  will be glad ,to deliver to any party   whom  you   may  designate.-^G. ,H. Martin, Auditor."  Fortunately the merchants of Greenwood are not as soulless as a railway corporation, and consequently they have  promptly refused to turn traitor to one who, winter and  summer, gave satisfaction in the handling,.of their goods.  Mr. E- D. Morrison has been hauling freight into this district for years and has always given a prompt and efficient  service ; the merchants have no intention of turning him  aside at the dictation of the auditor of the Spokane Falls &  Northern railway. In fact if Mr. Corbin fully appreciated  the service which Mr. Morrison has rendered his railway he  would do everything in his power to throw business his way.  ;Mr. Morrison has done more than any other man   to  secure  for the S. F. & N. nearly all the trade of Kettle River and  Boundary Creek points. When the freight via the Penticton route was subject to vexatious delays, Mr. Morrison  succeeded in delivering goods from Marcus promptly and  in good order; consequently the merchants routed their  goods by that line.' Does Mr. Corbin think that they are  now going to tell Mr. Morrison that the Mitchell Bros, will  carry their freight ? That is practically what the auditor's  letter means, for fully 76 per cent, of the freight coming in  by way of Marcus is in bond.  Mr. Morrison has been carrying bonded goods for years  and as far as our knowledge goes there never has been any  complaint and we humbly submit that it is time enough for  the railway compan}7* to speak of responsibility when the  service which Mr. Morrison gives proves unsatisfactory. It  is unnecessary to discuss at the present time whether  Mitchell Bros, give equally good service but the merchants  of Greenwood will never allow a railway company to force  them to give the carrying of their freight to Mitchell Bros,  or any one else.  Although we cannot boast that there are several railways  at the present time seeking Boundary Creek trade; still we  are not entirely at the mercy of the Spokane Falls & Northern railway and until its officials understand that they cannot dictate to the merchants -of Greenwood goods will be  routed by another line.  We hope that the merchants of Boundary Creek will not  retreat from the position they have taken. If the Spokane  Falls & Northern railway succeed in driving, all freighters  off the route excepting Mitchell Bros, the question of securing the prompt delivery of freight would be a serious one.  If the Mitchell Bros, have no opposition they would haul  freight when and how they please.  If Mr. Corbin is wise he will do nothing to antagonize his  patrons in Kettle River and Boundary Creek points. Heretofore his line has given satisfaction but he cannot expect  to retain the trade by a system of coercion.  iV*-     ^V*-     ���">���'*���  sji*     ^V     "sTiff  INCORPORATION.  Surely the time has arrived when those who signed the  petition asking for the incorporation of Greenwood should  demand an answer from the provincial government.  While there is plenty of evidence that the government has  no love for Greenwood, its residents ought'to be. entitled.to  greater   consideration than contemptuous silence.  It is nearly three months since a petition containing* the  signatures of residents owning ������more than one-half the  value of the land within the proposed limits was forwarded to the provincial government. The petition was  drawn up in everyway in accordance with the Act to accelerate the incorporation of Towns and Cities, and this having been done the lieutenant-governor in council should  treated the petitioners with respect.  The Act says that when several conditions mentioned have  been fulfilled it shall be further lawful for the lieutenant-  governor in council by letters patent under the public seal  to incorporate into a city or town municiputity any locality  in the province. Whether incorporation would be a good  thing for Greenwood need not be discussed here, but the  people petitioned for incorporation and they are entitled to  an answer, favorable or otherwise. If the delay is occasioned by the absence of several ministers from the capital  making it impossible to secure a meeting- of the cabinet,  the government should have the courage to say so. The  question of incorporation should at once be decided, either  one way or the other.  , i.  0   -<���  ''I  m  m  :*���-��-.*  i .-  ��� ^-vr-  :��� !������������.���������  ��� ��� . - �����,  TI* 1 T H E   BOO NDARY   G RE EK   TIME S -.'���  A MISSIONARY MEETING.  Rev. Dr. Robertson has the happy  knack of making even a missionary  lecture decidedly interesting and it was  for this reason that air who attended  "Wednesday evening's meeting went  away satisfied that the cause which he  espoused was a good one and that there  were very many ..funny incidents associated with the life of a Superintehd-  ent of Missions.  ,,'��������� In opening his  address  Dr.   Robertson  humorously   referred  to  the fact  that two years ago  he  passed through  Greenwood and never knew it  because  there were no houses on   the  townsite.  He was surprised to see such a flourishing town and reinretted that the  feuds  of railwaj^   charter  seekers   had  frustrated the efforts of the government to  give railway connection to, this district.  He did not want to discuss politics but  he would advise the people to .tell those  who   were   quarreling-    among   themselves to stand   aside  and not  act as a  barrier   to    the    development    of   the,  country.    He  hoped  that, they   would  .   soon   secure  railway   connection.with  the coal fields so that the great bodies  of ore of which   Greenwood   is the centre   could   be   smelted   at  home.     He  advised the people against a boom ; he  ,had been through   booms; in Manitoba  and they injured a town.    If the people  would   be   patient   they   were   sure to  meet  with success.    He  was surprised  to see so many women in anew mining  camp and thought this was a very good  sign.  But his   audience  would be anxious  to   know what   brought   him out here.  He  could   assure  them  at  the  outset  that he did not intend to invest in mining property.    He knew nothing ���.about'  mines   and- had  no money for mining  speculations.    He came to find out who  were here and  what  he could   do  for  their moral and .spiritual   welfare.    A  number of the  children   of the   church  had   come   westward   and  the church  considered  that it was its duty to follow them up.    The}' were patriots, too,  for the work of the church had advanced   the   interests  of  the   country, had  brought   safety  to   life and property.  ���'Rig-hteousness exalted nations but sin  is a disgrace to any people."    The east  was rightly helping* in the work, for if  it is worth   while  to send missionaries  to foreign lands, and it is worth while,  it is surelj'*  worth   while   to attempt to  prevent  our  people   from  sliding into  indifference.    Dr. Robertson then gave  an interesting-account   of   his   trip  to  England and Scotland in the  interests  of home missions.  He told of the eagerness displayed to assist the   work.    He  closed   by   informing*   the   people   of  Greenwood that the church asked them  for   no   money;   she   was   willing- and  anxious to assist  them.    All   that was  asked. of. them   was   that   they   help  themselves, encourage their pastor and  when they -grew   to   be   strong,   then  they      could     assist     in   giving-   the  gospel to others less  fortunatel}*-   situated.  Dr. Robertson addressed another  meeting* at Midway on Thursdaynight  and after the meeting he drove from  there to Grand Forks, :'*. distance of 30  'miles'to catch the three o'clock morning- stage for Bossburg.  The Le Roi Company have finally  decided to locate their smelter at North-  port and Mr. Corbin's railway will  therefore get the handling of their  ores.  ^  -ii1  ��� ���-- ��� Q2,       ��� ^ri^"        -- - S^~~      r. ���jg^���      T'fi.

Schilling's teas and baking- powders find a ready sale in the  district as they are of the best quality,  ,:Mr.; Smith, of the firm of Smith &  McRae, stationers, leaves to-day to visit his old home in North Dakota, He  expects to be away about six weeks  and Mrs. Smith and family will probably return with him to take up their  residence in Greenwood.  The T. T. D. C. Y. K. Club met on  Wednesday afternoon with Miss Mag*-  gie Stooke at the residence of Mrs. W.  J. Harber. A very pleasant afternoon  was spent ; refreshments were served.  The membership of the club is increasing*. The next meeting will be held at  the residence of Mrs. Comstock.  In all probability a new wagon road  will be built this summer up Bhplt  creek,to Summit camp. There is here  a low pass and the'building of a wagon  road should not prove a difficult task.  Several properties in Summit camp are  being developed and owners are anxious to secure better means of communication with Greenwood.  J. Stunden and R. R. Gilpin, of H.  M. Customs paid Greenwood a visit on  Thursday. Mr. Stunden is an officer  of the secret service who visited Greenwood about three weeks ago. Since  then he has been through the Kootenay district. On Friday Mr. Gilpin  returned to Grand Forks and Mr. Stunden went over to visit Mr. Kruger the  officer at Osoyoos.  The g-ood housewives of Greenwood  who have been using the O. K. flour  have declared it to be " O.K." This  flour is the product of" the Okanagan  Flour Mills Co. (Ltd.), of Armstrong,  B.C., an institution which has deservedly met with success since its organization some two years ago. The company's trade in the district is necessarily hampered by freight rates, but  the quality of the flour is gradually increasing the use of it in this district.  Consumers will secure good flour,���  cheaply if they can, but they are determined to secure good flour.  MINING  NOTES.  Julius Brunt of Spokane is doing the  assessment work on the Fcho and Iron  King on Pass creek.  A 35-foot open cut has been completed on the Hillside claim, on Pass  creek. High assays have beensecured  from the ore.  Mr.   G.   2E<1 Shaw, C.K.,��has almost'  completed the work of surveying the 16  claims    belonging ,; to   the   Boundary  Creek Mining and Milling Company.  The reports from Meyer's Creek are  very encouraging. Mr. Harrison; of  Greenwood and his partner are working one of the most '������promising properties in the camp.  A large force of men have   been  put :  to work on the Last,; Chance1 mine,   in  Skylark.camp.    The development work  has demonstrated that the Skyliark is a  Very valuable property.  The work of getting* the Okanagan  ;, mine, near Penticton, ready for shipping is being pushed as rapidly as possible. The necessary buildings are  being erected and other improvements  are well tinder way. The owners expect to ship two car-loads to F^yerett  about the middle of August.  All rumors which appear in the  Spokesman-Review regarding people  leaving Boundary Creek for Eureka  camp and that the excitement there is  depopulating- Nelson, Greenwood and  Grand Forks are as far as Greenwood  is concerned without; foundation. In  fact, the Eureka excitement has resulted in attracting people to Boundary  Greek district. A great many of those  who are. leaving Eureka, come up  north.  Mr. C. J. Lundy of Midway passed  through Greenwood yesterday on his  way to Greenwood camp where he has  some promising claims which he intends developing*. Mr. Lundy has just  returned from a trip from: Eureka  camp and his opinions of that district  are in consonance with those of others  who have paid Eureka a visit. The  Republic arid Lone Pine are likely to  prove valuable mines but Eureka is in  his opinion no district for   a poor man.  Freight From the C. P. R.  J. W. Bassett who runs a freight  line in connection with the C.P. R.,  from Penticton interviewed business  men of Greenwood yesterday with a  view to securing more freight in by the  C. P. R , and his line. Mr. Bassett  stated that he was prepared to meet  the rate of $1.25 per hundred fixed by  the Mitchell Bros., from Marcus and  that he was authorized by the C. P. R.  to state that the company were prepared to meet any cut in rates on the  Northern Pacific and S. F.������'& N. R. R.  Mr. Bassett also stated that he had  sufficient teams on the route to guarantee a prompt and efficient service. He  and four others are going to build a  steamer on Okanagan lake capable of  carrying- freight to Okanagan Falls a  distance of about 12 miles from Penticton. The freight can be transshipped  direct from the Aberdeen to the new  steamer and taken down to   the  Falls.  A SPECIAL SESSION.  " The report is current that it is the  intention of Hon. Premier Turner to  call an immediate session of the Provincial legislature to take into consideration ways and means for reaching  the Yukon" gold fields by way of the  Stickeen river, or some other stream  found to be navigable. The territory  in this Province to the north of  the Stickeen, which by the Washington treaty of 1871 is  free   alike  to  the  to be gained-  securing  United States and British, or Canadian bottoms, extends to a distance of  close upon 150 miles, and as yet is  comparatively an unexplored region,  practically in its virgin state. The  intelligence concern the Legislature  could not be confirmed to-ckiy in consequence of the wires being down between the mainland,and Victoria. We  hope, however, that the report is true.  If so the action of the government will  receive the endorsation of a vast majority of the people of this Province.���  Vancouver World.!''  It was also rumored   in   this  district  that a special  session   was to be called  but the object was to discuss ways and  means to secure a railway in Boundary  Creek  district.    While  the 'advantage  by the coast  cities  from  direct   communication    with  the  Yukon   district  will   no doubt  be  considerable   we  are stronglv   of   the-  opinion that it will be  equalty   important   from   a   provincial  standpoint  to  secure railwa3r   connection  with    this  district.    The   coast   people    and    the  government should not lose their heads  over the Clondyke craze.    If   a special  session of the leg-islature is to be called  Boundary Creek district  should not be  sidetracked   for    the    Clondyke.    The  people of the coast cannot  believe that,  the rich placer dig-gings   of Yukon are  going to be a permanent affair.    In all  probability   Clondyke placer  diggings-  will be a thing of  the   past within two  years.    But here it is different.    There  are properties that  cannot be  worked  out in years which   will   give   employment to a   large  number  of  men   and  will thereby add to the wealth and population of the province.  Connection with Clondyke must not  be secured at the expense of districts-  in our own province.  ���Formerly of Moncton, N.B.���  GREENWOOD   CITY,   B.C.  .

As was stated in the Times a few  weeks ago Mr. Mack's half interest in  the Winnipeg* mine was purchased by  Messrs. Beecher and Honey of North  Dakota. Mr. Mcintosh the owner of  the remaining* half interest was to  receive so , much cash and so many  . shares in a company org-anized for the  purpose of acquiring* and developing  the Winnipeg*. The last issue of the  B. C. Gazette contains a notice of incorporation of this company. The title  of th ecompany is the "'Winnipeg* Mining* and Smelting* Company X,td." It  is incorporated under the Companies'  Act 1897 with a capital of $1,000,000 divided into one million shares of one  dollar each. The registered office of  the company will be situated'in Yale  District.  In addition to purchasing* the Winnipeg*, the company: includes among-its  objects the purchase of any other mineral claims; to carry on any metallurgical operations; to construct railways,  tramways, crushing* works, furnaces ;  in fact to undertake any or every  known industry that relates to mining*.  The names of the incorporators are not  mentioned in the certificate of incorporation.  Eureka Camp.  D. Hicks of the Cosmopolitan restaurant returned on Saturday from a  week's trip to Eureka. He is strongly  of the opinion that Boundary Creek  ��district still-offers greater inducement  than this new camp and that there is  no g*ood reason for the rush into the  district. Others are evidently of the  same opinion for over twenty men rode  out with Mr. -Hicks when he left there.  There are about 20 men oh the pay roll  of the camp and the balance are purely  a floating* population. In the town of  Eureka all the inhabitants are squatters as the}r cannot purchase land in  the reservation. There is one hotel  without a license. No liquor can be  sold on the reservation. There are  also two or three restaurants and three  barber shops but all appear to be doing*  but little business.  The 20 stamp mill at the Tinhorn  mine in Fairview camp is being-erected  as rapidry as possible. Nearly all the  material is now on the ground.  Messrs. Dier and Davidson are working several other properties in addition to the Tinhorn and their pay roll  is a large one.  SPORTING   GOODS.

A meeting of Liberals was held in  the schoolhouse on Monday evening  for the purpose of organizing a liberal  association. , C. Scott Galloway < was  voted to the chair and D. Ross appointed secretary. Brief addresses' were  made by several of those present, pointing out the necessity for such an organization. As it- was at first intended  that the meeting should be held on  Monday, Aug*ust 2, instead' of Monday,  July 26, but through some misunderstanding the notice of meeting contained the latter date, it was decided  that no steps be taken towards Organization until, such time as liberals  from all over the district would have  an opportunity of attending the meeting, so as to make the association as  representative as possible.  Fruit Inspection.  T. G. Earl of   Lytton,   President   of  the Provincial Fruit Growers' Association   and member of the Horticultural  Board,  visited Greenwood   and   other  Boundary Creek points this week.    Mr.  Earl is traveling through the southern  portions of the  province   representing  the Horicultural  board, his object being as far as  possible  to  prevent  the  importation of diseased fruit  into   the  province.    He   appointed  the customs  officers  at  Kootenay   fruit inspectors  and they have the necessary authority  to examine all fruit going in  from the  American side.    Mr. Earl also appointed  Mr.  Sutherland, the officer at Mid-  wajr, as  fruit inspector,   to  look   after  the'large amount of   fruit   coming   in  from the Big Bend country.    Mr. Earl  went down as far as Osoyoos  and  will  return here   by  the way  of Penticton,;  In order to give inspectors   of   fruit as  little inconvenience   as  possible ��� those  bringing  in   fruit from the other  side  should  bear  in   mind  tha��t  under  the  Horicultural Board act all importers of  fruit must give notice to inspectors upon the arrival of any and all shipments  of  fruit.     If  found   to  be  free, from  insect  pests   and fungous    disease   a  clean certificate will  be  issued, but if  found diseased it must be destroyed or  reshippedto a point without the province.    Any   one  not   conforming with  the regulations is liable  to  a  penalty  not exceeding $50.  The Black Diamond.  Messrs. Olsen & Phelan of the White  Front Store have purchased a quarter  interest in the Black Diamond mine  from Mr. Wenrick. The Black Diamond is situated on the West Fork of  Kettle river and is considered to be  one of the most valuable of the many  promising properties in the district in  which it is located. There is a large  body of rich ore on the surface. Some  very high assays having- been secured.  Messrs. Wood, McMann and Sadler  own the remaining half interest.  Some very rich ore has been struck  on the Last Chance mine in Skylark  camp where several men are at work.  All the water has been pumped out of  the shaft and the men are working at  a depth of over 100 feet. Mr. Rosen-  haupt of Spokane who has charge of  the work is well pleased with the quality and quantity of the ore in the  shaft.   '  Mr. Henry White arrived from  White's camp on Tuesday and went up  to the old Ironsides where he has several men at work on a contract.

We are strongly of the opinion that  the editor of the Rossland Miner has  fallen into error in replying* to ' 'British Workman" who asks: "How much  of British Columbia Mr. Heinze lays  claim to ; how much water and how  much land? In replying to these pertinent queries the Rossland Miner  ' ������������state's:-' '      _��� '','������ ������������'  ;u ..  "Just how much of the^pfovince M!r.  , ^Heinze claims we do not know, but  British Workman is'mistaken in thinking he has not earned any part of his  land grant. When the Columbia &  'Western Land Grant. act was passed  the government very considerately provided that the already completed narrowg-auge line from Trail to Rossland  should be the first section of the road  and should get the same land grant as  any other section, except section 2  which has no land grant attached, and  which, as far as we know^ Mr. Heinze  has no intention of building. The line  from- Trail to Robson constitutes the  third section of the Columbia & Western and on its completion Mr. Heinze  will earn another large grant of land."  We fail to see how   Mr.   Heinze will  earn another land grant when the line  from  Trail   to   Robson   is   completed  unless  L/ieutenant-governor Dewdney  and his  cabinet  overrides  the Columbia & Western Railway Co's. act of incorporation and the   act  granting* the  company the land subsidy.    According  to the latter act "when section 3 of the  railway  is completed  the  land  under  section 3 shall be granted to  the   company;"   but   section   3  includes something    more  extensive than   the   line  from Trail to  Robson.    The   schedule  of the Columbia   & Western   Railway  Co's act  states   that "the third section  shall consist of that portion of the  line  extending from such  point at or near  the town of Rossland  to a point  at  or  near   Christina   lake.    The   Miner   is  scarcely fair to the people of Boundary  Creek by showing such haste in giving  Mr. Heinze   another   land grant.    We  are anxious to see   Mr.   Heinze's railway a little  nearer Greenwood   before  he secures a second large grant.  A VISITOR FROM DENVER.  No better criterion of the wealth of  Boundary Creek district can be found  than the fact that experienced representatives of capital will spend weeks  in the district seeking to secure properties. Mr. William Tuttle of Denver,  Colorado, has been in Boundary Creek  district for nearly a month and intends   I  remaining*  _ here for some time. Mr.  Tuttle represents a strong syndicate  anxious to secure good mining proper-  .ties. '..'���'���': : ;; ������-       "  "You   have    a   wonderful   district"  said Mr. Tuttle to a Times representative.    " There is no good   reason   why  Boundary Creek should not become  in  the   near   future   a   great   producing*  camp.    But after all it is  rather a discouraging* district to attempt to do business in.    ID very owner of  a  prospect  appears  to think he owns a mine and  asks   a   correspondingly   high   price.  We went through the same experience  in   Colorado   but  it   did   not take   the  claim   holders   long  to  discover  that  they were hurting themselves  and the  district.    Then they were quite willing*  to give a stringent working-   bond   by  which the moneyed men paid the, prospector  a  small  consideration  for  the  trouble   of    locating-  the   claim    and  carried on continuous work for perhaps  a period of two years.    At  the  end  of  that time the claim very likely  turned  out to be a paying mine.    The original  owner then received a good  figure  for  the  property.    If  Boundary  Creek   is  g*oing   to   be developed  claim  owners  must be more reasonable.    The   company which I represent are  quite willing to spend money in developing properties where the surf ace showings war  rant  such   a  care   to   buy  course  but they do not  a pig in a poke!. "If  claim owners are willing to take reasonable working bonds on the property  and assume some risk themselves  moneyed men will be quite willing* to  invest their money here  as no  district  offers greater inducements.  ??  REV. DR: ROBERTSON.  Rev. Dr. Robertson, superintendent  of the Presbyterian missions, visited  Greenwood this week and addressed a  representative audience on Wednesday  evening. Dr. Robertson is one of the  best known men in the northwest and  British Columbia. Since his appointment as superintendent of missions  some sixteen years ago he has visited  almost every farm house in the northwest and every mining*, camp in British  Columbia. He has camped with the  hardy prospector, delighting him with  his fund of Humorous stories of frontier life, each containing- a lesson. He  has held services in hotels, in the open  air, in miners' cabins; in fact any  place where he could g*et two or three  to listen to him. The "boys", .all  respect him, too, and like to see his tall  form and g*enial countenance.  Dr. Robertson . visited Boundary  Creek two years ago and was naturally  astonished to find a -substantial town  like Greenwood instead of a log cabin  which was the only building on the  townsite.

Bell   iS   UUIIIJ^       dCSSCOOliiGJULL       V  the "95," near Boundary Falls.  G. R. Naden and I. H.  Hallett  have  ..recently purchased the Fourth of  July  mineral claim.  J. Ord has secured water from the  Midway irrigation ditch for the purpose of carrying on placer mining  along Boundary creek.  C. H. Brown has completed the assessment work on the Combination, in  Smith's-camp. This property is likely  to prove a valuable one.  Water is coming in very rapidly in  the winze which is being sunk from  the floor of the 245-foot tunnel in the  Mother Eode. The winze is now  -down about 55 feet.  Mr. R. Wood has been at work on the  Electric  claim   in   Eong   Lake camp.  Some  very  rich ore  has   been   taken  , from the   property.    The   Electric   is  near the Roderick Dhu mine.  The Stemwinder claim in Fairview  camp is under option to a strong company and a stamp mill will soon be  erected on it. The Stemwinder was  one of the first claims located in the  camp.  The Smuggler Company will soon  have the new boiler and engine in  place at the Strathyre mill. After the  mill begins running the company expects to declare a dividend as they  have a large quantity of rich ore  ready to be crushed.  J. F. Hemenway, superintendent of  the Knob Hill mine in Greenwood  camp, in a letter to his principals in  Spokane speaks enthusiastically of the  property. He is confident that development work will give it a leading  place among the many valuable mines  in Greenwood camp. The work already  done has confirmed him in the belief  that there is a large body of rich ore on  the Knob Hill.  Mr.  Young Romancing.  W. H. Young who visited Greenwood  last week in order to make the final  payment on the $15,000 bond on the  Monarch claim, Greenwood camp, was  reported in the Spokane Chronicle as  saying regarding Boundary Creek that  the " old time prospectors and mining  men up north have caught the Klondike  fever   and   want to join the rush  for the arctic regions. Where a short  time ago some of these prospectors  holding claims up around Boundary  wanted $15,000 fpr their property, they  are now anxious and willing to engage  their services for $50 per month and  expenses to any one who will take  ���them into the Klondike country, and  will sell their claims for a song." We  shall be greatly indebted to Mr.  Young if he will tell us what $15,000  properties in Boundary Creek can be  purchased for a song. There are at  present several capitalists in the district anxious to get properties but they  complain that they cannot get $15,000  properties for $15,000.  School Meeting.  The board of school trustees held a  meeting in Mr. Hallett's office on Monday evening. The question of secur-  , ing a school site and erecting a suitable buildingk was discussed. Mr. ������  Wood the owner of the building which  up to the holidays was used as a school  room was present, and the board decided to rent the building from him until  such time as a suitable site could be  secured and a building erected.  The Kamloops Standard, a weekly  paper published in the interests of the  Conservatives and the provincial government, has made its appearance. It  is published at Kamloops and the first  issue is a very creditable one. Truly  this is an age for newspapers, no less  than six having been started in the  province during the past month. They  all appear to live, for the provincial  journalistic bone-yard has not been  enlarged recently.

During the recent session of the provincial legislature a meeting of the opponents of the government was held in  Victoria. Three members of the opposition in the legislature were appointed  an executive committee for the party.  They met in Vancouver recently- and  drafted the following platform on  which the opposition will appeal to the  electorate!  1. The adjustment of the representation of the province on a general  principle by which an equitable sj'stem  will be established, districts thinly  settled and remote from the populous'  centres receiving larger proportionate  representation than those districts  with a greater population' and nearer  the large cities, while in turn those dis-.  tricts, will have a proportionately  larger representation than the cities of  the Province.  2. Reorganization of the civil service with a view to greater efficiency  and economy in administration.    "  3. L/iberal expenditure on necessary public works tinder such rigid  supervision as will secure commensurate'results... .... '.'.",'-' ^-:-  'K  4. Discouragement of Oriental immigration. ,        ,  5. The amendment of the L,and Act  so that coal will be reserved along with  other minerals. Timber to be disposed  of by open competition and in such  quantities as the trade demands. Agricultural lands to be reserved for  actual settlers.  6. Repeal of the tax commonly  known as the Mortg-age Tax.  7. Amendment of the law in regard  to Free Miners' Tvicenses, so that a  man shall not be compelled to take out  a Free Miner's License before he can  work in a mine for wages.  8. Provincial aid to railways in the  past having resulted unsatisfactorily,  both as regards economy in -construction and moderation in transportation  charges, any future aid to railway's  to be based on efficient Provincial control both of the raising and expenditure  of the capital and of the rates of transportation. ;������"  The committee believes that it will  have the support of a very large majority of the Provincial voters whether  they are supporters of the opposition  or the Government, in its view that it  would be entirely detrimental to the  interests of the whole province at the  present time to introduce Dominion  political issues into the discussion of  provincial affairs.

There   is going to be   a big mining  boom  in  Greenwood.    The  boom will  come not next year nor the year following but will be here   in   a   very  short  time.    Since the disappointing railway  news, the people of   Greenwood   have  pursued the   even   tenor  of their way.  Few  were discouraged,   none gave up  the fight,   and   all were confident that  the    almost   inexhaustible   wealth   of  the district would bring the town to the  front.    They   were   sure that any setback  which   the district   might   have  received through the greed of unscrupulous railway subsidy seekers would be  only   temporary   and   that the experienced mining man backed up by  capital -would make the very best  purchasers   for   themselves    irrespective    of  action   of   railwa3r   charter     seekers.  That the residents of Greenwood  were  wise   in   looking  at   the matter philosophically will soon be   established beyond a. doubt.    We are not romancing-,  we   are   simply writing  of   something  that has come to   our   knowledge   and  which will soon be made public.    Some  of the   strongest   financial   companies  who   have   turned   their   attention to  mining have had their  representatives  working- quietry in the district endeavoring*  to   secure  good   properties   and  they are going to succeed.    Deals have  been closed, deals are being negoti a ted  which will not only mean that  owners  of mining properties  will be   enriched  but will   result   in the expenditure   of  large   sums   of   mdiiey   in   Boundary  Creek district.  One deal encourages another and if  property owners will be reasonable  Greenwood and the'contiguous, mining  camps will have as big a boom as Klondike and a healthier boom ^because the  district offers less ��� hardship, and surer  returns to capitalists arid miners.  If money is expended  in   developing  properties=  and   it will    be   expended,  railway   promoters  instead   of   strug*-  gling- for a subsidy will struggle to get  their lines into the district   in" order to  capture the larg-e and profitable  trade.  Alfred Woodhouse M. E.. and Mr. E,  M. E. Munns who ..���negotiated the Anaconda     deal   visited   Greenwood   this  week for the purpose of paying- Mr.Biel-  eiiberg- $1,000 on the bond and  signing  the    necessary     papers.    Everything  was satisfactory   arranged   and  this  valuable property is now in the   hands  of   an   English   sj^ndicate   who   . will  actively carry on the work,of  development, .^Messrs. Woodhouse and Munns  returned to   Rossland   on   Friday   but  they   will   come   to   Greenwood again  next week and will   then   put 15  or 20  miners to work on the Anaconda group.  As soon as the necessary buildings for  housing- the   men are  erected,   a much .,  larg-er force will be employed.    As the  company have   only   three   months in  which to satisfy   themselves   as to the  value of the   Anaconda   group,   everA-  advantag-e   will   be   taken of the short  time at their disposal and consequently  there will be a large amount of money  expended in wag-es, material   and   provisions in a short time.  had large  experience in   the field, the  representative of the   Mines  Selection  Company   of   London,   England,   has  I   secured a working bond on the property  through Mr. G. H.  Collins, the   manager of the Brandon   &   Golden   Crown  Co.    As soon as  the necessary papers  were  signed   Mr.   McFywen   at     once  started  men   at work.    There are now  six men at work and the force  will   be  rapidly increased.    The bond   is   for a  sufficient^ length of time to thoroughly develop the property.     ,  The B.C.   claim   has   a   wonderful  showing and experienced  mining men  hold that it is the finest prospect in the  whole district.    The ore is chalcopyrite -.',  and bbrnite, runs very high in   copper  and   fairly   high   in   gold and silver.  There is a lead over 25  feet  wide   in a  contact vein of lime and porphyry.  Mr. McEwen has spent considerable  time in the Slocan district where he  secured some property for his company.  That heis fully impressed with the  iiiineral richness of this district is best  evidenced by the fact ' that he has  secured property for his company.  There are other large deals being-  negotiated with good prospects of being closed at an early date.' Every  working- bond is a step towards the  development of the district.  ROYALTY   ON   GOLD.  -     Those who rush to  the   Cloiidyke, if  they   are  fortunate  enough /to  strike  good placer ground, will have to pay a  heavy royalty  to  the  Dominion  government.      A   despatch  from  Ottawa  states that at the close of the sitting of  the Cabinet it was announced that the  government had decided   to .impose iT.a.  royalty on all placer diggings  on   the  Yukon, in addition to the $15  registration fee and  $100  annual  assessment.  The royalty will be 10  per  cent,   each  on claims with an output of $500 or less  monthly,   and  20  per  cent,   on   every  claim   producing   above  that  amount  yearly.      Besides   this   royalty   it   has  been decided in   regard   to   all  future  claims  staked   out   on  other  streams  that every  alternate  claim  should  be  the property of  the  government,   and  should be reserved for public purposes  and sold or worked by the government  for the benefit of  the  revenue  of  the  dominion.

Martin, chief commissioner of lands  and works, is a mystery as far as  the  people   of   Boundary   Creek  are  concerned.    Last  week  he  was  regaling  Mayor Houston, of Nelson, with a powerful   railway   magnate's  expression :  " The people be d���d," but  since  then  he appears to  have  disappeared  from  the public view.    Whether he lost himself while attempting to  reach   Boundary Creek from Rossland, or  whether  he returned to Victoria in   response to  an'urgent telegram from   the premier,  cannot be determined.  All we do know  is that he has not yet made his appearance in Greenwood.

THE   CARIBOO   MINE.  The annual meeting of the , Carib oo  Mining, Milling & Smelting Company  w;as held in Spokane recently and the  old board of directors, consisting of  Mr. M. Cowley, James Monaghan,  George B. McAuley, Edward O'Shea  and C. P. Chamberlain were re-elected.  James Monaghan is president and  George B. McAuley secretary. The  statement of accounts shows that although $12,000 was lost in the stolen  "bullion and legal expenses connected  therewith and $6,000 was paid for new  machinery, the mine has paid during  the past year $78,836,84,���"'. there being  also $21,297 in the treasury. General  Manager Monaghan in his report  states the following :  ' 'During the 12 months ending this  date there has been ,6742 tons df ore  milled, producing 8035 ounces' of bullion and 170 tons concentrates; the ore  milled has averaged $17.45 per ton.  There has been 355 feet of drifting ore, .  and 100 feet of raising on ore; 200 feet  development���" cross-cutting; 175 feet development shafting; 50 feet development winze sinking, making 425 feet  of developing.  "The new machinery, consisting of  a four-drill Rand compressor and a 50-  horse power boiler, was started on the  first of this   month inking   a  shaft  from the lower level, it is the intention  to sink this Shaft 100 feet, which will  make the new level 275 feet from the  surface^ When tlie work on this level  is sufficiently advanced, additional  stamps, power, concentrators, and also  a hoist, should be "added to the plant."  The Cariboo of Camp McKinney  has paid to date $156,964^76 in dividends. :"':"',,   '.' -. '���' ��'.. .'"''.������  A Prominent Banker.  Col. Ray, a prominent banker of  Port Arthur, Ont., visited Greenwood  this week, anxious to secure mining  properties for the capitalists whom he  represents. While this Cis Col. Ray's  first visit to Boundary Creek he is no  stranger to British Columbia, having  spent some time in Kootenay last year  and this : summer. He has purchased  some yalu able properties in the Slocan district. Col. Ray expressed himself as being highly pleased with Boundary Creek as a mining district. It  was a relief to him to travel through a  comparatively open country - after  climbing the precipitous mountains of  Slocan.. He and Mr. McEwen left for  Nelson on Friday but Col. Ray intends  returning shortly when he will probably invest in Boundary Creek mines.  KLONDIKE  EXCITEMENT.  The Klondike excitement continues  and business men, prospectors, miners,  and people of every class are leaving  for the most northern territory in Canada. Many of those who intend going  should give heed to the warning of  Hon. Mr. Sifton the minister of the Interior. He has cautioned all people  sroiiig* to the Yukon to see that thev  arrange for provisions and obtain all  necessary information about the country and the climate before going in  there or there is sure to be starvation  in Yukon if a large crowd should go  unprovided.      ;  There are a number of men at work  developing properties in Long Lake  camp with very gratifying results.  When the wagon road is completed it  is probable that a number of the property owners will put more men to work  as it will then be easier getting in supplies.  5$S  *>$w:      >j$* .     wgb'. ,     ygk        MP*        ��*J^        <^fv      ,'^V ,���������   w**v        m**        Wfkr ���     sJ^U        t^W      . ��4fi>  W.
