I  #  OUR   NEXT   MEMBER.  HE} Rossland convention made an excellent selection. The great desideratum of the approaching* election is the defeat of the Turner govern-  ment. Mr. Martin will do his share by carrying* the Rossland constituency by an overwhelming* majority. He is well known, and  possesses the confidence of all the electors. His  politics are sound. He is in favor of progressive legislation and is therefore unequivocally opposed to the Turner  administration. . ,  While Mr. Martin's election is assured, those opposed to  the Turner government should make every effort to have  as large a majority as possible. It is in the interests of the  whole constituency and particularly in the interests of  Boundary Greek that the expression of disapproval of the  Turner government should, be most pronounced. Bvery  vote should be polled on July 9th.  When Mr. Martin is elected we feel sure that he will not  prove a disappointment to the constituents. He is pledged  to a platform that recog*nizes the rights of Boundary-Creek  to a member immediately and outlines leg-islation that is in  the interests of this district. Mr. Martin will endeavor to  can-y out his pledges and as he goes to parliament a supporter of the party which will then be in power, he is sure  to succeed in securing for Boundary Creek that justice and  consideration which had been denied Gby -the moribund  administration whose members are now" alarmed at seeing*  the active preparation for their burial, that are being made  by the electors of the province.  *>��*���        i"��- 2?!��  ���?i^ ?1>F        f\S  fit  ?K  ���>ir  MISAPPLIED   ABILITY.  The editor of the Rossland miner is an amusing cuss.  He began the campaign in favor of the Turner government  by assuming that the electors of the Rossland constituency  and more particularily those of Boundary Creek were fools  and that their only course was to make the Miner their political guide. His versatility is exceeded only by his lack of  political conscience. He writes not a syllable in favor of  the government whose cause he espouses but hopes to run  an election by manufacturing dissension. When one election canard fails, he manufactures another. It is a pity that  so much ingenious lying, should be thrown away ; it is a  greater pity that so great a man should work in so limited  a field. The editor of the Miner would find a proper scope  for his genius as a San Francisco Examiner correspondent.  There he would find a market for his peculiar style of journalism. In the Rossland constituency he succeeds in amusing the electors and strengthening the cause of the opposition party.  The Miner would lead the people to believe that harmony does not prevail within the ranks of the opposition party  because more than one candidate allowed his name to go  before the convention. Accepting the Miner's conception  of harmony we have it in the highest form in the government ranks for no one appears foolish enough to allow his  name to go before a government convention. The Miner's  brand of harmony is not popular on the opposition side.  The oppositionists are thankful that their cause is encouraging and that there is in their-ranks plenty of suitable mate- .  rial for a provincial member. The Rossland convention  made clear that the party is solidly united in its opposition  to the Turner government. Did the editor of the Miner not  hear Mr. Boyle's eloquent declaration that he was too loyal  to  his' political principles and his opposition to   the Turner  government, not to stand by the choice of the convention ?  The talented editor of the Miner does not do himself full  justice until he discusses the action of the Boundary Creek,  delegates at the convention. He made frantic endeavors to  induce Boundary Creek to nominate Boundary Creek candidates and when the delegates refused,to fall into his clumsily laicttrap, he announces that Boundary Creek has for-  feited all right to criticize the redistribution bill! Now  that is the style of  argument  that   takes.    It   is most con  vincing.  It is sure to win friends for the government   and  more firmly establish the  editor  of   Miner's reputation for  political sagacity. *  Seriously speaking the editor of the Miner is sacrificing"  his reputation in the interests of the Turner government.  A continuance of the course outlined will give him a permanent reputation for being politically the greatest simpleton that ever edited a newspaper. With his elastic journalistic conscience he could easily eulogize the Turner government and would thus do his party better service than by  attempting to dictate to the oppositionists what they ought  to do and then declaring a lack of harmony in the party  because they do not follow his directions.  '���/it-  #6  A   LIBEL   ON   BOUNDARY   CREEK.  " There is not a man in the Boundary country capable  of representing this district in the assembly���for if a man  could not stand before the Rossland convention he certainly  cannot fill a legislative office."  The above is from the Ghrand Forks Miner. We are surprised that a man possessing the political astuteness of the  editor of the Miner should give utterance to a sentiment  that lib.els the people of this district. The Miner should  remember that an unwilling*ness to sacrifice the interests of  a party to personal ambition or the interests of a certain  portion of the constituency does not show incapacity on the  part of those making the sacrifice.  The Turner government has treated Boundary Creek  so disgracefully that for the present every interest must be  trampled under foot if necessary to accomplish the defeat  of the Turner government. When this is accomplished and  Boundary Creek receives her full measure of political power  the Miner will find that there are plenty of aspirants for  political honors and that they compare very favorably with  those in other sections of the province. '  The editor of the Miner must know that Mr. Martin of  Rossland would poll more votes in the Rossland constituency than any Boundary Creek man. If he is as anxious to  defeat the Turner government as most people in the district  he must know that it was politically expedient to secure the  nomination of a Rossland man.  We have always opposed and always will oppose weakening the chances of securing the return of an opposition  candidate by pitting Boundary Creek, against Rossland.  The Rossland Miner and government supporters have  attempted to breed sectionalism and we are forced to -state  that we fear the Grand Forks Miner has fallen into the trap  prepared b}r desig'ning* government politicians.  .  The duty of Boundary Creek is clear. IOvery vote  should be polled as a protest ag-ainst the treatment accorded  the district by the Turner government. Any other course  would be disloyal to the best interests of the district.  The Miner should not forget that it has a very grave  duty to perform in connection with the election and neither  selfish interests nor personal predjudice should influence its  polic3r. The absence of a Boundary Creek candidate is not  sufficient excuse for divorcing itself from the position it so  abl}r upheld during* the past few. months. ���lPfc'^12��r'':-t*~vA'3-!.'5tf(4.tS3tfirtW.jl  ;���;  ' j..  ������ S  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES.  mjt*MTijKLVriMwu*m  giT*T*r^rK%*Fnir&*x:r.r.xr-iv'icmT.<v.-r.r&x~st  RAILWAY   NEWS.  East week Vice-president T. G.  Shaug-hnessy of the C. P. R. visited  Robson and other points along the line  of railway. Interviewed at Rossland  he stated that sub-contracts on the line  between Robson and Boundary-would  be let inimediately.  :1 Mr. Shaughnessy also visited Vancouver where he was interviewed by a  News-Advertiser representative. He  said:  " The contracts have been let for the  construction of the line from Robson to  Penticton."  - -*' The other portion has been left in  abeyance." ,  " "Yes.'''    " ���  . ." ���;'".;.���  " Do you intend to go on with that  portion at an early date ?"  "Messrs. McKenzie and Mann will  go on with that part, at least the Vancouver, Victoria and pastern will make  some arrangement about it. Our portion of the work is from Robson to  Boundary."  " Can   you   tell   what   arrangement  Mackenzie and Mann have made ?"  ��� "No, I   cannot   say   what   arrangements they have made ; if any."  The contractors for the road have  400 men at work near Robson. Already  canvas   towns   have sprung up  along  the line of   construction  the   name   _  mouth of Dog*  Creek.    Here  Brooklyn   is  given to a new town at the  the  contractors have their headquarters. Another railway town is New York.  J. Hamilton, the C. P. R. land commissioner and W. H. Tye the chief engineer, are expected in Greenwood  an3r da3r. The object of their trip is to  arrange for station and , yard room in  the different towns and also lay out  new townsites if in their opinion it is  wise to do so.  It is also reported by the Rossland  Miner that R. T. Wilgress of the C. P.  R. service, Vancouver, and F. W. Russell, of the land department, Winnipeg  left Rossland for the Boundary Creek  country, to arrang-e townsite and right  of -wa3r matters in connection with the  Columbia & Western road from Robson. The first point they will make  for will be Cascade City and from there  they will follow the location of the rail  wa3r through Midway.  Returned From England.  M.E- D. MacKay of the Kootena3'  Development Company returned to  Greenwood this week from Eng*land.  His company have under bond the  Snowshoe, Republic group*)and other  properties in 'Boundary Creek under  the management of R. W. Macfarlane,  M. E. Mr. MacKay reports that during his visit to Eondon as much interest was taken there in the war as in  New York and consequently investors  lost interest in mining* for the time being. He is of the opinion however that  an encouraging reaction will set in at  the close of the war arid that a large  amount of Fnglish money will be invested in British Columbia mines.  Thos. P.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  ��� -m ir -imTm mil mi ii mniiiii mnwmiii  EAST   YALE.  Donald Graham, M. P. P., liavjnt>:'  recovered,from his recent villness has  consented to accept the unanimous  nomination of the opposition-party'ami  is now actively canyasing* throughout  the district, Mr. Graham's many  Boundary Creek friends are delighted  to learn that Mr. Graham is making*  the run. He has been too useful a  member to retire from politics at the  present time. East Yale too is to be  - congratulated that Mr. Graham will  remain its member. From Donald  Graham to Pi-ice Ellison is too great a  retrograde step to be thought of for  one moment. Reports from the district south of Penticton are to the  effect that Mr. Grafciam will there  secure at least ninety per cent, of the  votes.  ���'  The News-Advertiser has the following* to say regarding Mr. Graham :  "The  many friends   of   Mr. Donald  Graham will be g*lad to learn  that  he  has so far recovered from his illness as  to be able   to   reconsider his decision  ..���not., to'be'a candidate again  and  that  he will offer himself for re-election for  East Yale.    In the four years during  which he has represented  that constituency, Mr. Graham developed qualities  which made him an admirable member  of   the   Legislature.    Modest   in    demeanor he showed himself to be a sagacious and prudent legislator, one   who  dealt with  public  affairs  as he would  with  his   own   interests.    Industrious  and painstaking* on committee work he  always had the ear of the House when  he addressed it and on more  than one  occasion he came off an  easy victor in  wordy  contests  with the Premier and  Attorney-General,    while   the     Chief  Commissioner   always   found himself  hopelessly defeated in any controversy  with the canny Scot from  the   Okanagan Valley. .. ���������'���;'.���  In the present electoral contest Mr.  Graham should receive the hearty support of the people of East Yale.  A   DUNSMUIR   CABINET.  Should the Turner government be  returned it is reported that there will  be certain cabinet changes. The personnel of the new cabinet follows:  Premier and minister of finance, Hon.  J. H. Turner; president of the council,  Mr. James Dunsmuir ; attorney general, Hon. C. E. Pooley, M. P. P. for  Esquimalt, solicitor for the Dunsmuirs ;  chief commissioner of lands and works,  Mr. Joseph Hiinter^-o^ernnient candidate for Cariboo, and superintendent of  the Dunsmuirs' Island railway ; minister of niines, Mr. John Bryden, M, P.  P. for North Nanaimo, and managing  director of the Dunsmuirs' iron works ;  minister'" of education, Dr. W. W.  Walkem, M. P. P. for south Nanaimo,  surgeon of the Dunsmuirs' colliery and  editor of the Dunsmuirs' Wellington  organ. -   ���  THE   CORBIN   RAILWAY.  Mr. E. V. Bodwell at a public meeting held recently in Victoria made the  following pointed references to the pro-   I  yincial government's railway, polieyv  ���--; "Heinze sold, put for $800,ob6," and  when the Kettle River valley f ailway  asken a charter the .British Columbia  government asked that the charter be  refused, although the company were  pledged to construct the road for nothing., ;And when the government knew  the C. P. R. had bought the V. V. &E.  charter the government bonused them  $4,000 a mile. It must be plain to the  public that no railway except the Canadian Pacific railway can do any business in the province. Had the Kettle  river railway bill passed it would have  opened up the country to the Grand  Trunk and wonld have been continued  to the coast. Thus it was seen that the  government were working against a  scheme which would have been an advantage to the country.  Sea salt baths at Ford's.  *  Robson-Penticton Railway.  Rossland, B. C, June 15.���"The contractors on the Robson-Penticton railway are- rffaking--active preparations  for commencing work," said John G.  Sullivan, the principal assistant engineer in charge* "A little town called  Brooklyn is springing up.at the mouth  of Dog creek on lower Arrow lake, just  across the lake from Deer Park. A  force of men are engaged in building  a wagon road from the lake to the  divide pass on the summit of the divide.  As soon as the wagon road is completed, so that supplies and tools may be  taken in, the work of grading will be  actively pushed all along the line of.  the proposed railway. The work would  have been commenced to-day but the  rain has delayed operations for a day  or two.  Sea salt baths at Ford's.  *  Greenwood Cemetery.  ��� It is hoped that the city council will  join with the fraternal societies for  the purpose of placing the Greenwood  cemetery -in a presentable condition.  To-da;y it is a disgrace to the town and  its people. The cemetery should be  cleared and fenced. There should be  some indication that that the residents  of the city are sufficiently civilized to  show some respect for the dead.

The government candidates in Victoria are- Messrs. Turner, Helnicker,  McPhillips and R. Hall.  It is reported that Hon. J;- H. Turner  will hold meetings at different points  in Boundary Creek district.  James Martin the opposition candidate wil1 make a tour through Boundary Creek within the next ten days.  The following opposition candidates  ���-nominated last week are sure winners  in Vancouver : F. C. Cotton, R. Mac-  Pherson, Hon. Joe Martin and Charles  Tisdall. Mr. Tisdall is a new man in  provincial politics but he enters the  field possessed of the confidence of all.  and also sufficient armament to knock  out any government candidate in Vancouver. The other candidates are well  known throughout the province.  W. W. B.  McInnes'-  who is   going-to  save the province ( vide his "manifesto ) ,  has found a seat.    D. McKechnie "will  run   for  the  Dominion   house and the  boy  orator will run in Nautiimo.    The  .people'of  Nanaimo' evidently did not  complete^- swallow the -bombastic and  egotistical'  manifesto   for   they made  "Billy"   promise  he would be. a  good'  opposition candidate and not try to run  a party on his own hook.    The   people  of Nanaimo acted   wisely.    Unless the  boy orator is checked   there   is a great  dano-er .of'having "too much McInnes"  in the province.  Alex Henderson and James McQueen  are running" as government candidates,  the one in New Westminster, the other  in Richmond.    Alex   .says   he is   a lib  eral and Jim says   "Amen."    Alex at-  - tended   air   opposition   convention   in  New Westminster so did James.    Alex  w.as^ppointeda member, of a  committee to draft a platform ; so was James.  Alex attended the meeting of the  com-  niittee ./ in   the :Hotel   Guichon so did  James.    Alex    shouted    " good"   and  ..still, ringing;in our: ears is the> striden.t  .: Scottish'.notes; of Jaines as. he reiterat-.  ed   "Amen ���'   when   this   plank   was  adopted:.    ... ''-..''���_ ;'���. ��� "',.  " We denounce the Turner Administration, which has justly forfeited the  confidence of the.people of this Province by its reckless squandering of the  public revenue ; its alienation of the  public lands by grants to railway promoters and private speculators  (notably, the grant to the Cassiar Central Railway Company); its system of  class taxation; its encouragement of  monopolies ;,its open support of Oriental labor ���; and its persistent attemps to  encourage sectional jealousies between  the Island and Mainland, for political  purposes. And we denounce the practice of Ministers of ihe-Crown making  use of their official positions to promote  their private interests by associating  their names with ruining and other  speculative companies."  Is it surprising that they are endeavoring to hide their treachery to the  liberal party underneath a mantle of  independence!  C. P. R.   Survey.  If the last C. P. R. survej** is any indication of where the line is to be placed, the good people of Greenwood cannot complain that the powerful company is going to build away from the  town. In fact a number of property  owners complain bitterly that the C.  P. R. is altogether too affectionate and  that'they would like it better a little  farther off. A party of surveyors put  in peg's this week. They followed the  eastern slope to the new Catholic  church, down the valle}'* ran through  the soda water works,disturbed the pig-  tailed Mongolians who chatter in the  wash house by the bridge, divided Mr.  Gordon's house in two, crossed Silver  street by C. J. ��� Mc Arthur's residence  and on through the Sutherland addition. Should the railway be built  along this route, the company will pay  a heavy sum for expropriating" valuable property. It is quite possible  however that the route adopted will be  along the west side of the river where  the land has been reserved for that  purpose. Thesurveyois are now working-in the vicinity of Boundary   Falls.  Off  to   Scotland.  I)r. Christie who left Greenwood on  Saturday last on a three month's holiday trip to Scotland carries with him  the well wishes of his large circle of  acquaintances in this district. The  doctor is one of the pioneers of the district who showed his confidence in its  wonderful mineral resources by staying with the canio. It is gratifying-  that he as well as others of the earlj'  pioneers have been in a measure rewarded for their years of patient waiting-. It is rumored that the doctor will  not return alone but that a Scotch lassie will be taken into a life partnership. The Times extends its congrat-  illations in advance.  /.  H.

The ball game between Greenwood  and Grand Forks on the 10th inst. was  a fairly g*ood one, althoug-h both teams  showed a want of practice. The game  was started at 3 o'clock with R. Rad-  cliffe as umpire. Grand Forks went  to the bat, Medill pitching* for Greenwood. The players from the Villag*e  of Floods piled up seven runs, g-etting  five bases on balls. In the second half  the home team failed to find the direction in which Campbell was pitching-,  and were retired with a 0. In the first  half of the second inning's Medill g*ot  down to work, and Russell, Donog"h  and Goodeve tickled the atmosphere in  one, two, three order. In the second  half 'O'Leary failed three times to  loosen the stitching* on the ball and  gave place to Geo. Miller, who hit a  two-bagger to left field. Nels I^aPlant  sent the ball out to right field, bringing Miller home. Medill and Sterrett  fanned, leaving I^aPlant on third. In  the   third,   Fred   Russell   and   Frank  Coryell  scored  for   Grand Forks, and  Thomas   and  Smith   for   Greenwood.  In   this   inning   both   teams  did  considerable   arguing   in reference to the  umpire's   eye,   alternately   contending  that it was good or evil as the decisions  were   for   or   against.      The    umpire  didn't bring- his gun with   him, so had  to   hedge   repeatedly.    In   the  fourth  Hallett was in the box for Greenwood,  Newton  and   Coryell   scoring  for   the  visitors.    Hallett, Thomas, Medill and  Sterrett made   the   home   plate   in the  second half.    In   the   first   half of the  fifth Hallett  failed   to   hit   the  bat of  Donogh,    Newton    and   Wilson,    and  these three were   equally  successful in  evading-   the   ball.    In   the   last   half  IvaPlant   and   Medill   scored, , Hallett,  Thomas and Sterrett retiring the team.  Hallett again shut out   the   visitors-in  the sixth, Smith and   Geo. Miller scoring for the home team.   This made the  score 11 all. In the seventh, Campbell,  Clyde and Douogii   failed   to  find   the  ball,   and  Thomas,  M. ��.   Miller   and  Smith piled   up   the   same  number of  runs for the home team.   In the eighth  the   visitors   scored   4   and the   home  team 2, and in the ninth Grand Forks  added 1 and Greenwood   3.    Following  is  the score by innings :  1   2   3   4 5 6 7 SOT.  Grand Forks 7   0   2   2 0 0 0 4   1���16.  Greenwood ...0   1   2   4 2 2 0 2   3���16..  NOTES.  Thomas played a faultless game on  first.  Dick Radcliffe wasn't a bit rattled.  It was some other person.  Frank Coryell did some excellent  work at short stop as well as in the box.  Fred. Smith can handle the ball and  bat as well as any of them, but he  dont understand the tricks of baseball.  A very closel}' contested match was.  played the past week between the first  nine and a scrub team. It was a  spectator's game throughout. The  score was 134 to 114 in favor of the  ������first nine. No one appeared to be  overheated at the conclusion of the  match. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES.  MR.   TURNER'S   VISIT.  ' *-���'  L,ast year the very Hon. John Herbert Turner, Premier, Minister of  'Finance, Minister of Agriculture,  ^Director of the Klondyke Golden Twin  Swindle Co., etc., announced that he  intended visiting* Boundary Creek but  : he didn't come. The Times then  pointed out what the honorable gentleman; missed by not coming*. The announcement is again made that the  premier will visit Boundary Creek and  The Times desires to point out certain  things the premier ought to tell us.  Hon. J. H. Turner is not likely to  discuss matters in which the people of  Boundary-" Creek take a direct personal  interest. , He will tell theni about " my  government," what an economical,  efficient, progressive government it is.  He is.sure to devote at least 15 minutes  towards furnishing Hon. George Bohm.  Martin with a reputation. Cheap  money for farmers will also occupy  some time as will also the circulating  library. The railway policy Of my  government will be discussed in a' general way.  Now all this no doubt will prove exceedingly interesting but the good people of Boundary Creek are more anxious to learn something about the redistribution bill. They wonder why  Boundary Creek has been tacked on to  Rossland and if the government really  considers a man in Boundary Creek  should have only one-tenth as much  political power as a man'm Esquimalt.  They are also anxious to know why  their resolutions and petitions were  treated.with contempt and a constituency formed against the wishes of nine-  tenths of the'people directly interested.  The people are also anxious to learn  the particulars regarding railway legislation. They would like to know  why Mi*; Turner worked so strenuously  to defeat the Corbin charter and then  saddled the province with an additional  debt .of .nearly one million dollars to  secure railway facilities that Mr. Corbin offered to give without costing the  province anything. They, are also  anxious to learn all about the promised  immediate building of a railway from  Penticton and sundry other particulars  regarding the railway policy of the  government.  The'. numerous business men and  prospectors who contributed so exten-  sivel}7. to wards tlie construction of roads  and trails in this district are ver}r anxious to hear something definite about  the g-overnment system of expending*  money upon public works. They  would like to know if it is fashionable  and just the proper caper in other portions of the province for the people to  pay. taxes into the provincial treasury  and build roads themselves.  There are man}' other matters, of  peculiar interest to.the people of Boundary Creek and it is to be hoped that  when the premier reaches Greenwood  he will la}r aside his "speech " and tell  us something" locally interesting-.  Of course all this is conditional uoon  his coming.    He may come but then: he  may not.  �����>  ***.  Independent   Candidates.  An independent candidate is a weak,  vacillating, paper-backed individual,  the victim of the Turner government  and the clique. He is the tool of a  government who is anxious to have  some sort of a candidate in every constituency and the stalking horse behind which the government organs  bleed the province by means of useless  advertisements and exorbitant prices  for the publication of voters' lists. He  is generally a loud-mouthed, bombastic  fellow who has but little stake in the  country ; is without political principles  and is willing to "sacrifice" himself  so long as his campaign expenses are  paid.     ��� < ������'���;.'  One of those' independent supporters  of the Turner government will oppose  James Martin in this district. L,ook  out for him. He will be the paid tool  of the Turner, government and the  branded plaything of the ROssland  Miner. -  Sea salt baths at Ford's.

Greenwood; is  going  to have a telephone line.    There appears to be a certainty about it this time and   the  residents are not asked to clear  the right  of way and erect the poles.    The Times  pointed out  a  few weeks ago that the  Nelson & Vernon, a British   Columbia  Company,  were   endeavoring*   to  take  advantage of  Greenwood  by   making  it a condition precedent to giving telephone connection that the town should  dear  the   right   of   way,  furnish the  poles and erect the same.    W. B.   Aris  and W. H. Oakes of   the company who  are operating the line to Republic  and  between Spokane and Rossland visited  Greenwood this week and corroborated  the statement in The Times ', regarding-  the Nelson & Vernon   Company.    Mr.  Aris stated that the Nelson   & Vernon  Company were  under contract to connect his line   with  Grand  Forks   and  Greenwood but for some reason the N.  and V. company had   made   no   effort  towards carrying out the contract.    He  stated that Greenwood  ought  to  have -*.  telephone connection and he had made  up his mind to run a line from  Republic via   Midway.    "We  don't  want  a  bonus either "  said   Mr.   Aris.    " The  line will   pay    arid that is all we care  about."  Mr. Aris'company  goes  to  work at'  once.    Th^ line is to be rushed and by  July 1st, Greenwood is likely   to  have  telephone communication with the outside world.    ''.-���������  WATCH   THE   VOTERS'   LIST.  While other districts of the  province  have their voters'   list  completed, the  electors   of Boundary   Creek   are still  ignorant  regarding  the names which  have been transferred from  Kast Yale  to   the   Rossland   constituency.    It is  quite   possible   that   . in   making   the  transfers Mr. Cochrane may  inadvertently leave off many names that ought  to be recorded.   . As the people here are  opposition   to   a   nian  such   a  course  would not prove distasteful to the government.     Errors will often arise   and  conseqeuntly.an  opportunity   ought to  be given to correct   omissions   and inaccuracies   in ��-the  new list.     Boundary Creek has suffered   sufficiently already   without   being*  further disfranchised in transferring   votes from one  constituency   to another.    We  do   not  say that omissions will arise, but there  is a strong* probability that  such   may  be the case and as soon as the lists.are  made public evei"3r elector should carefully scruutinize the same to   see   that  his name has not been omitted.  RossLiiicl fh\T.zv Brand.  When the opponent of James Martin,  the Opposition candidate for the Rossland riding", enters the field, he will, in  all probability, be known as an independent supporter of the government���  Rossland Miner.  In Boundary Creek district he will  certainl3r be known as a reckless,  servile supporter of the government;  otherwise he would not  enter the field.

The regular meeting of the city  council was held in the court house on  Monday evening last. His Worship,  Mayor Wood, presided arid the following aldermen were present: Aid. Galloway, Paton, Barrett, Phelan and  ���Parry.  Geo. H. Cropley asked permission to  place public weighing scales on his lot  on Silver street. The permission was  granted subject to the supervision of  the city engineer and to removal at  three months'   notice from the council.  Chief of Police Taylor reported that  the-, alley ������.������between- Copper and Government street was being built upon. A  long discussion ensued regarding the  matter. It appeared that the registered plan shows a 15 foot alley but Copper street lot owners claim a depth of  110 feet which would leave only a five  foot alley. The matter was deferred  for two weeks until Mr. G. M. Shaw  could be present. .:;.  A motion was carried inviting the  Police Commissioners to attend the  next-meeting of the council for the  purpose of jointly discussing questions  affecting the public morals."  Aid. Barrett gave notice to introduce  a by-law dividing the  city  into wards.  The council then adjourned.  A   FRUITLESS   MISSION.  John II. McKane, J. Fred Ritchie  and Earnest Miller of Rossiarid arriv-  �� ed in Greenwood on Monday last.  The}' represented the government  party in Rossland and the object of  their visit was to size up the political  situation and if possible secure dele-  srates   to   a  srovernment     convention  fc> g o  which is to be held in Rossland on  Tuesday next. They were accompani--  ed by F. H. McCarter of the Grand  Forks Miner and Chas. Van Ness.  The Rossland politicians enjoyed their  trip imniensel3r but found few ^government supporters in the vicinity of  Greenwood.      :  They made the   best   of a very   bad  cause.    Not one word did  they  say in  favor   of   the     Turner     government:  They were  even  gracious  enough   to  admit that Boundary Creek  had   been  cruelly treated by the  government but  James Martin  was not the rig-fit man.  He was everything that is bad excepting that he was  honest  and a  shrewd  business man.    If D. B. Bogle or A. B.  Clabon or   some   one   else other than  James Martin had been   nominated   in  all probabilit}'   no  g-overnmeut  candidate   would   have been placed   in   the  field.    This peculiar style of argument  did not convince the hard-headed Boundary Creek elector and after  the Ross-  .land   delegates   had   exhausted   their  vocabulary in abusing "Jim" Martin,  the electors politely sug-gested  the ad-  visabilit}' of enumerating- some of the  virtues   of   the   Turner   government.  Mr.   McKane intimated   that   Tuesday's convention   would   bring forth a  man that would cany the constituency  and reform the government.    H;  was  so sorry the opposition  had nominated  ''Jim " Martin.    Then he rjroceeded to  again dissect " Jim "Martin   pointing  out his frailities, and his peculiarites.  "Jim "is a good fellow, an honest fellow, a shrewd business man but then  he will not make a suitable representative." Mr. McKane's greatest objection to Mr. Martin was that he refused  to be the mayor of Rossland  last year.  It was rather amusing to listen to  politicians attempting to convert the  electors. They would forget the object of their trip and denounce the  redistribution bill, the government's  action with reference to the Corbin  charter and its general policy. They  would then remember that they were  here in support of the Turner government and atone for their political back  sliding by a still more bitter dissertation apon Mr. Martin's peculiarities.,  They were listened to with greatest  good humor and when any one suggested that the Turner government  had certain sins they must answer for  the invariable reply was "&' Jim ' Martin will not make a suitable representative."  Mr. McKane occasionally had  spasms of eloquence, particularly so  when he told of the interest Rossland  took in the Boundary Creek district.  " Why," he exclaimed, "I, myself, as  secretary of the Rossland Board of  Trade spent $50 in telegraphing to the  Dominion   government   to  grant  the  Corbin charter." An elector mildly  suggested that the expenditure of so  much money would probably not have  been required if his friends the Turner  government had acted as it oug-ht to  have acted in the matter. "Quite  true '' replied Mr.; McKane " but ' Jim '  Martinis not the right man."a  Mr. Ritchie and Mr. McKane returned on Tuesday. Mr. Miller who is a  young; lawyer will remain here until  after the election and may   settle here.  Accidental Death.  A Camp McKinney correspondent  sends the following- particulars regarding the death of Victor EJngstoii. He  was a young man of about 20 years of  ag-e, and weighed 200 pounds. He hat!  just worked two days in the Cari-bdb as  mucker and was coming up in the cage  with the steel at about 5:30 p. m., Sat-  urda3r last when the engineer, "Charles  Keeley, felt the rope shake and immediately stopped the engine and sent for  the foreman who accompanied by another miner went down the ladder and  found the unfortunate man had fallen  out or been knocked out of the cage, he  had fallen about 200 feet and struck a  plank over the dump in which was 10  feet of water. The plank was broken  in two and the body was fished out of  the water and was buried on Sunday  week last.  Church Social.  The ladies of the congregation gave  a church social in Rendell & Co's. hall  on Saturday evening last. There was  a good attendance. An excellent and  diversified programme was rendered.  Refreshments were served by the  ladies. At the close the chairman in  behalf of the ladies presented Rev. Mr.  Guy with a well filled purse. The reverend gentleman made a suitable,  reply.
