Vol, IV,  GREENWOOD, B,G, SATURDAY, JULY 30,1898,  99  No, 21  One of  the  Crack Properties  of the  District  Being Vigorously Developed,  Over Eight Hundred Feet of Work in Shafts,  Drifts; Crosscuts and Tunnels,  Ore ! Ore everywhere ! On the surface, in shafts and  drifts and tunnels ! In the underground workings of the  Winnipeg mine is bright pyritic ore that scintilates in the  weird, flickering light of a miner's candle until one is  reminded of those caverns of wealth so graphically described in some of Rider Haggard's inimitable novels. The  labyrinth of crosscuts and tunnels at the 100-foot level on  the Winnipeg is a revelation to the outsider visiting the  mine and is a mute but eloquent tribute to the quiet but  aggressive policy of development pursued by the management since November last.  The Winnipeg has always been considered one of the crack  properties of the district. It is situated in Wellington camp  about eight miles from the city of Greenwood. It is a fractional claim containing 33^ acres and is crown granted.  The Winnipeg was located in June 1895 by Duncan Mcintosh, one of the pioneer prospectors to whose piuck, and perseverance is largely due the prominence which the district  has attained. Mr. Mcintosh set to wofk single-handed to  develop the property. He ran drifts and sunk shafts until  he had the satisfaction of uncovering sufficient ore to demonstrate that the Winnipeg was no ordinary propert}'. Flattering offers were made for the purchase of the property  but all were refused. Mr. Mcintosh had the g-reatest confidence in the property and lie determined that he would have .  a share in the profits as a recompense for the trials of the  early prospecting days.  Mr. Mcintosh had a promising claim and it was not a  difficult matter to get financial men interested. In July '97  the Winnipeg Mining & Smelting Company Y^as incorporated with Mr. Duncan Mcintosh, president and managing  director ; Mr. D. H. Beecher, treasurer, and Mr. W. F. Honey  secretary. Messrs. Beecher and Honey are prominent  North Dakota bankers. They and their immediate friends  have acquired sufficient.of the treasurj' stock of the company to. provide ample funds for the development of the  property.'' The stock of the company is practically not for  sale, any* sold is to the friends of the present shareholders.  Mr. Honey, the courteous secretary of the company, now  resides at the mine, his family being" also with him for the  summer months.  The company started to work on Nov. 1st, 1897. Up to  the present they have sunk a double compartment shaft 100  feet, several smaller shafts, 100 feet of drifting at the 50-  foot level and over 550 feet at the 100 foot level. The drift  at the 50-foot level is in continuous ore. It runs east, 15  deg-rees south from the main shaft for a 100 feet. East  week the drift was changed west, 10 degrees south and still  running* in ore. It is the intention of the companj'- to continue this drift until the limit of the ore body is reached  when a winze will be sunk to the 100-fooc level.  At the 100-foot level a drift runs north and south  through 90 feet of an ore body which averag-es from 3 to 4  feet in width on the foot wall   side   of   the  ledg-e.  On the  hanging wall side several chutes of ore were found making  a continous ore chute of 130 to 140 feet from 6 inches to 3 feet  wide. Several cross cuts and drifts have also been made at  this level.  On the west side of the claim, adjoining the Golden  Crown a shaft has been sunk 46 feet deep in from IK feet  to 3 feet in ore. On the east side of the claim another shaft  35 feet deep has been sumk and a drift at the bottom 20 feet  in length 17 feet in ore. :  The ore is a pyrrhotite. East fall 5 tons were taken to  the Northport smelter from the 35 foot shaft east and from  the 50 foot drift of the main shaft. The smelter returns  were remarkably encouraging. The 5 tons averag-ed $74.41  to the ton in gold and about 44 cents in silver. This is  probably above the average value of the ore but judging  from all tests made it will not avert age less than $40 to the  ton.,, In December of last year a plant was installed. It  was purchased from the Jenckes Machine Co., and consists  of a 35-horse power, boiler, a 6x8 friction hoist and a No. 5  Cameron pump, also 400 feet of cable and all implements  necessary to do all repairs on the ground.  The building-s consist of a shaft house and engine room  25x50 feet, the company's office, residence, boarding house  and bunk house.  The companj'* are in a position to place the mine on a  shipping- basis at any time and would be prepared at present to ship steadily 50 tons a day if transportation facilities  were available. Until the railway is constructed, theyin-  tend to keep a small force of men developing- , the property.  At present seven men are employed but,this force will  be increased by a night shift.  A visitor to the mine is impressed with the care that  has been taken in properly safeguarding-the workings. The  double compartment shaft is lined on both sides with lumber. All the underground works are securely timbered  where ever necessary. The buildings are substantial and  well constructed and the machinery is kept in the best of  order by Engineer Smith. Everything about the mines  shows careful management. There is nothing shilly-shally  about the property.  The mine is well situated. It is near the summit of the  divide and a down grade haul is obtainable in either direction. There is a good water supply close at hand but timber is comparatively scarce.  The Winnipeg Company deserve success. If ore bodies  and ore values are indications they will secure success. :  They placed sufficient money in the treasury to remove the  possibility of ceasing development work for want of funds,  they went systemetically to work to develop the property ;  muting is indeed a series of surprises, a delusion and a  snare unless the Winnipeg- is a handsome dividend payer as  soon as a market is secured for the ore.  "5/Y"-  Notwithstandiiig the fact that nearlj' two weeks ago  word was received through Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M. P., that  provision had been made for carrying- mails from Grand  Forks on alternate days, there is no improvement in the  mail service. Probablj' the people of Greenwood are too,  impatient and they should g-rant the postoffice inspector  more time to inaug-erate the new and improved system, or it  is possible that the postmaster at Grand Forks has decided  not to give the mails'on alternate days. That would settle  the matter as the Grand Fork's postmaster is more important than the postmaster g*eneral. When asked last week  if he intended to deliver the mails next morning* he replied  grandiloquently, " It altogether depends upon how I feel in  the morning."    Comment is unnecessary. ^Wj;';  ���"#  ;;/U-^!i:;*Tf[-^[,Ju''-fj.  ^*��&&*?T.  &  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  RAILWAY   CONFERENCE.  Since the  Great Northern   Railway  Company acquired the  Spokane  Falls  & Northern Railway  there  have been  one'or two conferences between officers  of the C. P.   R.   and Great   Northern.  These conferences may.,, mean'much as  far as transportation facilities   in   the  Kootenay and   Boundary  Greek countries   are  concerned.    First  the great  and only Sir William Van  Home  discussed railway matters with the equally great James J. Hill.    What the two  rival president's said or did is only a matter of conjecture but  repoi t says that  Sir William   offered  not  to   interfere  with the Great Northern's monopoly in  certain sections if the Great   Northern  would promise not to cut into the Klon-  dyke and Kootenay trade of theC.P.R.  It is possible that there is, no  truth  in this statement but there is always a  danger that the powerful railway corporations may make such arrangements  as will make remote the possibility of  competition   in   different sections.    A  conference of freight   men   was   also  recently held in St. Paul and they discussed freight rates.  A St. Paul paper  says : .. ',."���'  The rate from the Slocan country  had been $2 higher than from the Kootenay country on pre shipments, and  this difference the Canadian Pacific  regarded prejudicial to its interests.  After a two day's conference, during*  which the whole situation was carefully canvassed by the traffic representatives of interested lines in Great  Northern headquarters, an agreement  was reached to make the difference in.  rates only $1. The Canadian Pacific  and the Spokane Falls & Northern���  haul most of the stuff affected. Traffic  Manag*er Kerr and Kootenay Agent  Peters of the Canadian Pacific; Assistant General Freight Agent Garnett of  the Union Pacific and J. A. Reeves,  assistant general freight agent of the  Oregon Railway & Navigation Company, representing the Rio Grande  Western and the Denver & Rio Grande  returned home last evening., Tariffs  will be immediately checked up on the  new basis.  TELEPHONE   LINE.  The telephone line will be built to  Greenwood before the end of August.  Coils of wire have been distributed  along the road from Grand Forks to  Greenwood and the poles are erected  for seven miles on this side of Grand  Forks. The line is running to Grand  Forks and that citjr now has connection with the outside world. From reports, no extensive conversations can  be engaged in excepting by the rich.  A Grand Forks business man who  spoke with Rossland for one minute  paid 80 cents for the privilege. The  telephone line will be a great convenience however particularilj' to those  who wish to cable in connection with  mining deals.  J. E. Boss of the Stemwinder and  Duncan Mcintosh of the Winnipeg  were in the city for supplies on Thursday.  *t>^  m  We can quite understand it, but there  is one tiling of more importance to the  people living in. the Boundary Creek  district than  '2ffiS  m..  m  $&���  SJSJS  m  ���gK5  And that is where yo can get the  common ���necessaries' of life.

Hallett who had been visiting at the  Coast returned with him.   '.'...  Rev.Father/Palmer has gone toGrand  Forks, after holding two services at  the 'Roman Catholic Church, Greenwood, on Sunday last.  The British America Corporation  has purchased the Algonquin group of  mines on Castle mountain near Cascade City.    Ten men, are at work.  R. W. Macfarlane of the Snowshoe  came, over from Rossland this week  and after spending a few days at the  mine returned again to the Kootenay  capital.  Rev. Henry Irving paid a flying visit  to Greenwood on Sunday last. He  reports than an Episcopal clergyman  will be stationed here early next  month. His charge will include Greenwood and Midway.  The plant recently purchased for the  City of Paris mine* Central camp,  from a.the Jenckes Machine company,  has been shipped and is expected on  the ground shortly. The tunnel on  the property is now in 200 feet.  Dr. Jakes and W. T. Smith have  gone on a fishing expedition to Christina Eake. Before leaving they were  each placed under, bonds of $1,000 that  they would not exaggerate their  'catches. Mr. Smith is almost sure to  lose his $1,000.  The P. O. department has granted a  a postofnce for Greenwood Camp, calling it Greenwood Camp, P. O. y, This  name is not satisfactory as it is/likely  to conflict with Greenwood, P. O.^ The  department , has been requested to  change the name to Knob'Hill or Phoenix.     ,     .  Qn   Wednesday    those   waiting  their mail were treated  to  for  rather   an  exciting kicking exhibition. One of  the leaders on the stage for Grand  Forks began hitting the air and became tangled up in the neck yoke and  straps. Before he decided to give up,  the pole of the stage "End neck yoke  were broken and the horse was reward-:  ed with numerous cuts on the legs. :  Rev. T. C. Guy desires to thank the  people of Greenwood and district for  kind inquiries and substantial, gifts  ���during his illness. He .is unable to  answer all kindly letters of enquiry  much as he would desire "to'.'"do so. j He  had a very bad attack of insomnia  coupled with an ulcerated stomach  which it was feared might be fatal.

It is reported  that the government are greatly disappointed over the result of the nominations. The act was so framed that  the pocket borough of Cassiar was to  be used as a refuge for defeated mem��  bers. The issuing- of the writs and  the dates for nomination and election  were left at the discretion of the returning* officer. The government sent  an emissary from Victoria with the  nomination papers of two government  candidates all prepared. When this  gentleman reached ITbrt Simpson he  found that he was too late. Returning  Officer/Alexander had issued the writs  and,the nominations had been held.  The g-overnmeiit can get but little  satisfaction out of the candidates.  Captain John Irving gave Mr. Turner  a lukewarm support in |the house, and  often refused to be driven. When the  convention for nominating opposition  candidates was held recently in Victoria, Captain Irving was present and  declared himself as an, oppositionist,  arid took an active part in the nomination of candidates.  ,W. D. Clifford refuses to commit  himself [other than say he will give  whatever government is in power an  independent support. When it introduces good acts they will receive his  support, but he reserves the right to  oppose any measures he considers not  in the best interests of the province.  G. A. McTavish, the other nominee,  is an avowed oppositionist. He came  all the wa3r from the Skeena last year ;  to attend the convention held at New  Westminster, and was then strong in  his denunciation of the Turner government.  It is difficult to form an opinion as  to the result of the election. It is possible that Captain Irving, who is at  present on the Yukon river, will lose  votes,because he has not visited the  district for , some time and is doing  nothing in the way of canvassing for  his election. The probability is that  Messrs. Clifford and McTavish will be  elected. This will give the opposition  a clear majorit}** of two over all, and  leave the government with only 16  straight supporters in a house of 38.  A   COOK   BOOK   FREE.

It is useless disguising the fact the  fact that up to the present no bonafide  effort has been made by the holders of  the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern  charter to construct the road from Penticton to Boundary Creek. A few  weeks ago, a half dozen men and a  meagre' plant were sent down to Pen-  -ticton that it might be heralded  throughout the province that the Turner government railway policy was O.  K. In every constituency in the province supporters of the government  pointed to the fact that the Penticton  railway was being built. Now that  the elections are over there can be no  good reason for keeping the show men  at Penticton. Either the company  should make a bonafide effort to build  or announce its intention of not building"- ' -.  By the terms of the Act under which  the subsidy of $4000 a mile was granted  unless the work is duly and   diligently  prosecuted to   the  satisfaction of  the  Eieutenant-governor-in-council, all-  right'and claim to the subsidy granted  by the Act shall be cancelled and void.  That work has to commence on August  8th next. We are strongly of the opinion that the conditions of the subsidy  act should be strictly adhered to. Ex-'  perience with railway companies in  this province has certainly taught that  no public good can be derived from  granting any concession. Unless  active and continuous work on the Penticton road begins before August 8th  the right to the subsidy should be at  once cancelled. To grant further time  is simply to encourage impecunious  people in their efforts to sell what they  secure through the legislature of the  province.      ���  THE   ROSSLAND   BANQUET.  Eord Aberdeen can regale the people  of the Old Country with thrilling  stories of how they entertain a governor-general in Rossland. A banquet  was given to His Excellency in the  Hotel Allan last week and lest he  should go with the impression that the  ways of the wild and wooly west were  not still in vogue, several exhibitions  of manly art were given. Judge Scho-  field is wearing a black eye because he  ���quietly intimated to a mining man that  he was speaking out of his turn. A  well known undertaker attempted to  get himself a job by sending an official  of a mining corporation to another  world. Altogether the banquet was a  howling success.  Bannell Sawyer.  Bannell Sawyer of Montreal was a  visitor to Greenwood this week. He is  heavily interested in mining proper-v  ties throughout the country. Mr.  Sawyer recently acquired 200,000  shares in the company organized by  Smith Curtis, of Rossland, to operate  the Pay Ore mine on the North Fork.  It is the intention of the company to  begin development at once. Mr.  Sawyer left for Camp McKinney on  Thursday.  CORBIN   LAND   GRANT,  .   D. C. Corbin, president of the Spokane Falls   &   Northern   Railway,   has  gone to New York, and it   is  supposed  that the object of his trip is to complete  the sale  of  the railway   system to the  Great   Northern    Railway    company.  There   are   conflicting   reports   as   to  what is   included   in the   sale.    From  one source there comes the  statement  that the   Great  Northern   gets  everything^���the  railways,    telegraph  lines  and the Red  Mountain   and Nelson &  Fort Sheppard railways   land   grants.  The reason why it is claimed the  land  grant was sold with the railways is because there is   a  bonded   indebtedness  of $3,050,000.    These bonds  constitute  a first mortgage on the railways of the  system and also on all  the propert}' of  all the different companies   in the system*    The purchasers   of the railway  assume that bonded  indebtedness and  this is why the land grant  goes   to the  purchasers.    There was only one reservation in the sale, and that is the commercial wire connecting Rossland   and  Spokane^ and   Nelson   and    Spokane.  This is to become the separate property  of Austin Corbin, the Second, and it is  understood  will   be  operated  by him.  There is   considerable  business transacted over the wire, and   it is   thought  It can be made to  pay  handsome dividends when   operated separately from  the railway."���Rossland Miner.  F. S. Barnard has made a proposition to the city council for the sale of  the city debentures. He wants a year's  option on the debentures and in the  meantime will advance the city $20,000  at ten per cent, per annum. Mr. Barnard is a philanthropist.

The   residents   of  Boundary   Creek  were  gratified  to learn  that   another  effort will be made to secure the  charter  for  the Kettle  River  Valley Railway.    The  chances   that   the charter  will be  granted  are  better than   they  were last session when several matters  were used to antagonize  the  members  of the house against  the  railway.    At  that time there  was   a  strong feeling  against the Americans because of certain grievances in connection with the  Yukon trade and the Canadian  statesmen thought it   would   be   a patriotic  thing to wreak vengeance  on an inoffensive American road that was intended to open up a  promising  portion  of  Canadian  territory.    Then the  C.   P.  R. made strenous efforts  to  defeat the  charter.    The  officers  of the company  made solemn pledg-es  that  if the charter  were  not  granted   their  company  would have a road into Boundary Creek  before the yeai:; expired.    The C. P. R.  can scarcely oppose  the  granting of a  charter with the  vim of   last   session.  If it goes toparliament with pledges un-  fullfilled its case is weakened   and if it  carries out its promises  by   having its  road completed, it   is in   a, position   to  welcome competition.  The necessity for a competitive railway in Boundary Creek is just as great  as it ever was. Boundary Creek is a  peculiar mining district. Its wealth  lies not as much in the quality of ores  as in the quantity. Granted the most  favoratde conditions such as cheap  transportation, cheap fuel and cheap  treatment,    the   large   bodies   of low  grade ores will yield a small profit,  sufficient to induce capital to operate  the mines thus giving employment to  a large mimber of men. On the other  hand if one company has a monopoly  of the carrying trade, a corner on the  fuel, and a cinch on the smelters, the  probability is that only the higher  grade properties can be profitably  worked. It will at once be said that  the C. P. R. company : is not going to  be foolish enough to do any thing that  will retard the development of the  country. It may be admitted that the  C. P. R. has no intention of doing so  but experience has taught that every  big railway corporation instinctively  makes big rates even when those rates  injure its own business. The temptation is irresistable.  The selfish fossils of the Coast have  probably', learnt a lesson by this time  arid they will be slow to again oppose  this charter. As for the provincial  government no opposition should be  expected from that quarter. The electors gave Mr. Turner and his colleague  some salutary advice on July 9th.  The renewal of the application for  the charter will spur the C. P. R. to  rush the work of construction from.  Robson. The company will make  every effort to have an established  trade before another railway can be  constructed.  LOST   IN   THE   WOODS.  Reinze W. Macfarlane had a. rather  uncomfortable experience coming from  Rossland last week. He -rode across  the Dewdney trail and got along without any mishap until a point about two  miles from Cascade City was reached.  Here he was thinking deeply about the  wealth of the Snowshoe or some other  equally pleasant subject, and the horse  took the wrong trail. Mr. Macfarlane  thought that Cascade City had been  shifted, and he traveled on and on  until after going- fifteen miles on the  reservation he came to the conclusion <  that he had been traveling the wrong  road. A night in the woods, an empty  stomach and a trip of fifteen miles  back to Cascade City, were some of the  pleasant incidents connected with the  trip.

If the government held any hope  that defections mig-ht be .secured from  the opposition ranks, that hope is now  shattered. The opposition party is  united, strong* and confident. In accordance with an invitation from Mr.  C. A. Semlin, the newly-elected members, defeated candidates and delegates from election committes of Island  and Mainland constituencies, met at  Vancouver on Wednesday last to confer on matters connected with the interests of the party. All the members  elected by the opposition to the legislature were present, except Messrs. Kin-  chant, Green and Macpherson, who  were unavoidably absent. It had been  intended to hold a meeting* of the  new members in the afternoon, a public meeting- in the market hall in the  evening*, and the g*eneral meeting* of  members and their committees afterwards. Owing* to many of the latter  being*   compelled  to  return  home the  next morning*, this arrangement had  to be modified and the public meeting-  was abandoned in consequence. Before the commencement of business in  the evening* the committee room was  crowded by the local friends of the  opposition, and brief addresses were  made by Messrs. Brown, Munro, Martin (Rossland), Graham, Yates, Sword,  Deane, Forster, Hig-gins, Bodwell,  Kellie, Kidd and Martin. The chair  was occupied by Mr. Semlin. The addresses were all similar in their tone  of satisfaction at the results of the  election and of confidence in the prospects of the party, it being* manifest  from the utterances of the speakers  that the Island and Mainland are now  united in the effort for g*ood government for the province at larg*e.  After the adjournment a further  meeting* was held by the members and  committees from the different constituencies, when all matters under  consideration were full}' discussed and  arrang-ed, and it was nearly  midnight  when one of the most important political gatherings ever held in Vancouver  came to a close.  Mr. W. L. Hogg.  Mr. W. L,. Hogg- of Montreal arrived in Greenwood on Wednesday.  He is one of the two owners of the  Sunset mine in Deadwood camp. Mr.  Hogg visited the property and was  well pleased with the neat and substantial buildings which had been  erected and the large amount of development done under the superintendence of J. H. Macfarlane. This  work will be continued. Mr. Hogg reports that mining matters are rather  dull in the east. He went on Friday  to Granite creek, where he is heavily  interested in mining properties, and  expects to return to Greenwood early  next week.  Mr. J. C. Haas has had several men  at work doing the assessment work on  tde Lead King, Skylark camp. Work  has also been resumed on the Golconda  group in Smith's camp.

The city was thrown into a state of  feverish excitement this week hy the  arrival of a woman with a half a dozen  children. The woman gave her name  as Mrs. Richard Fisher of Butte, Montana. She was unfortunate in the  name. Some three or four weeks ago  a Mrs. Fisher was hunting* a husband  in Rossland. She had several children  and she left without finding* a husband  but with a good fat purse filled by .sympathetic miners.'- It was soon discovered that' this Mrs. Fisher' was a professional beggar and that the husband  she was so anxious to find was very  much alive. He was none other than,  a peripatetic musician who followed in  the wake of the woman with the children and blackmailed the people into  giving him something to move on or  cease grinding "A Hot Time" or  " Down on the,Wabash," out of a disorganized hand organ- The police of  Rossland .gently told Mrs. Fisher that  her room was better than her company  and she moved to new pastures.  There are some people in Greenwood  who are uncharitable enough to believe  that the recent arrival here is one and  the same Mrs. Fisher ; there are others  and the ladies are in the majority who  believe otherwise and they have shed  so many tears of sympathy that there  was the greatest danger of afresh  water famine because the waters of  Twin and Boundary Creek had become  too saline for domestic Use.  Mrs. Fisher and her little band registered at the Pioneer hotel. In the  morning Mrs. Nelson asked only half  rates and Mrs. Fisher maintained she '  had not sufficient money when it is  said the little girl produced a roll of  bills from a valise. Mrs. Fisher -and  her children went to the Mother L/ode  to find her. husband. She didn't find  the husband but Mr. Keffer found her  $27.50. among the men employed there.  The excitement regarding the woman  is intense. One enthusiast scoured the  country trying to find a husband but  returned unsuccessful. The champions of Mrs. Fisher point out that her  ticket shows she came direct from  Butte, and that her letters prove her to  be a hard working, honest woman with  plenty of children and that she is not  asking for charity.  The;'Times expresses no opinion. It  isjnot running a charity directory and  offers no advice to its readers regarding the best market for an exuberance  of sympathy nor the safest avenue for  the disposal of surplus cash. To those  who are troubled with enlargement of  the heart the most convenient plan is  to give in every case. This may prove  expensive but remove the possibility of  missing the deserving ones.  The   City   Bonds.  It is quite possible that Mr. W. Lv.  Hogg will purchase the city debentures. He is manager of one of the  Eastern Ivoan Associations and as he  has an intimate knowledge of the  prospects of the city, he will in all  probability be able to place the bonds.  Mr. Hogg stated that should the coun-j  cil make a reasonable offer he would  place $5000 at their disposal at once so  that the much needed improvements  could be proceeded with. The .matter'  will come up for discussion at Monday  night's.meeting of'the council.   <  The   Cairboo.  It is reported that Geo. B. Macauley  is now in the Dast negotiating for the  sale of the Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney. There is an unconfirmed ru-  mpr that the Messrs. Blackstock and  Gooderman who own the War lOagle  are seeking to purchase the Cariboo.  Some new machinery has recently been  placed in the mine.  From West Fork.  J. C. Olson and Frank Chadler returned on Thursday from the West  Fork of Kettle River where they were  working some properties in which they  are interested. They report that the  entire district is over run with prospectors^ and that several rich finds have  been made. J. Guttridge located a  promising free milling claim near Bull  Creek.

But-seeing" that'the"  Turner   government   can   only   claim  eighteen avowed supporters in a House  of-, thirty-eight,   . Iyieu tenant-governor '  Mclnnes may have a word to say as to  the date of the proposed  meeting with  the legislature.  The opposition has more avowed  supporters in trie new legislature than  has the government, besides representing a majority of fifteen hundred of  the popular vote.  A government which goes to the  country with all tne resources of office  at its back, and fails to prevent a united opposition from getting a majority  of the popular vote and at least half of  the legislature, has no mandate to continue in office,except by favour of the  Iv ieutenant-g-overnor.���Toronto -Tele  gram.  VOTERS   SHOULD   REGISTER.  Every resident of Boundary Greek  district who has the necessary qualifications, should have his name placed  on the voters' list. Blank forms .may  be found at the lawyers' offices, at the  book stores and at The Times office.  It is of the utmost importance that  this district should have a large voters'  list. At the recent election there were  fully one hundred duly qualified resi-,  dents of Greenwood and vicinity who  neglected to have their names registered.. Another election may be declared at any time, and every elector  should be prepared.  Chased   By  A  Bear.  W. S. Fletcher, the druggist, has  almost decided to quit mining and  ranching and devote his entire time to  ministering to the sick. While up the  West Fork last week he had an interview that was anything but pleasant.'  He was going- along through the woods  and came across two cubs. The mother of the cubs also came across Mr.  Fletcher who thought, from her decided  ways that discretion was the better  part of valor. Mr. Fletcher began to  climb a tree but after going a few feet  a small 22 rifle which he carried in his  boot g-ot caught in a limb and he could  go no farther. The enraged bear made  frantic endeavors to grab Mr. Fletcher  by the heels and came within one hundred part of an inch of succeeding. At  last the rifle was disengaged and Mr.  Fletcher at once concluded that more  comfortable quarters could be secured  higher up. He lost no time in going  up. The bear guarded, the foot of the  tree for some time but at last went to,  her cubs. Mr. Fletcher promptly left  the vicinit}*.  A Midnight Marriage.  The midnight quiet of the Pioneer  hotel was disturbed on Wednesday  night by the rattle of wheels and the  lusty voices of several Americans.  The wheels were attached to a wagon  which contained a couple anxious to  get married.    They were very anxious.  They came from Nelson, Wash., and  drove to Grand Forks expecting that  they would there find a Clerk in Holy  Orders. They soon learnt however,  that every man in Grand Forks is his  own sky pilot because the people cannot even agree upon having one man  directing them heavenward. The  ���couple; came to Greenwood determined  that they would lose no time in getting  spliced. Rev. Mr. Oswald is nothing  if not accommodating, so he turned out  after midnight Thursday morning and  soon made the couple happy. The contracting parties were Irvin Bellews and  Miss Pearl Richards of Nelson, Wash.  They were accompanied by'Mr.- and  Mrs. T. G. McCormack of the same  place who. supported them during the  marriage ceremony. The happy couple  returned to Nelson on Thursday morning".   ,  __^_���__  Mr. C. A. R.

Mr. Bostock was disappointed that he  could not visit th��-. district last year, on  account of the libel suit in which he  was one of the defendants keeping him  at the coast. He will, however, this fall  make up for it by remaining- several  days in the district, looking after the  requirements of his constituents and  gaining information concerning the  resources of the district.  ���    A.

On     Sunday    last   Arthur   Rendell  returned from a visit to   his  old   home  in New Foundland.    He was accompa-.  nied by his brother Frank who is making a trip through the west.    On Monday evening the " boys "tendered Mr.  Rendell a complimentary smoker.:    The  smoker  was   held   in   Rendell & Co's.  hall and about 40 gentlemen were present.    A most enjoyable   evening   was  spent.    The pioneer Boundary Creeker  regaled the audience  with   interesting  reminiscences of the early  days when  Mr. Rendell was almost  the only merchant in the  district  and always used  the   prospector  "white."    Greenwood  is blessed  with   several good  singers  and they were out in full force on Monday evening much   to  the   delight   of  those     present.      Several     humorous  speeches   were    made   and    excellent  stories  told.    Kveryone enjoyed   himself and at midnight the company dispersed by singing " Auld I^ang Syne "  and with the hope that some other one  would be patriotic enough   to   enlist in  the American   army  or spine   one else  return to Greenwood after a visit in the  east.  RAILWAY   NOTES.  The    rather   startling,   news   comes  from Grand Forks that Mr, H.X. Wil-  gress right of way agent for the Canadian Pacific Railway   Company   is not  a happy man   these days and that during   the last   week   his   auburn locks  have become   tinged   with   grey.    He  has   been   trying to   secure a right of  way   through   the    beautiful,   city on  Grand Prairie and his task has demonstrated the.fact that his   position is no  sinecure.    There are two   Grand Fork-  ses.    The old town, the  conception  of  the Manlies and Upper  Grand  Forks,  the   home   of   the McCallums and the  Hays.    Between   the   good    Christain  people  of  these  towns  a rather bitter  feeling has been engendered.    Mr. Wil-  gress is   an   impartial   man.    He lives  above the bickerings and jealousies of  rival   townsites   and   he  proceeded to  give them a lesson.    He fixed  the  site  for the   station   on a   beautiful bench  midway between the two towns.    That  the good people of Upper Grand Forks  might   ha ye   no  cause for  complaint,  the   decision   was   also arrived at, that  the railway through Lower Grand  Forks should be elevated above the  home of the Canadian band whose  Wagnerian strains lull to sweet sleep  the denizens of the place. The Miner  claims that the railway is to be built  through the city on stilts and the  Miner is always reliable. This elevated system of railway construction does  not please the lower town people and  numerous indignation meetings are the  result. Mr. Wilgress is to be pitied, so  are the people who so foolishly endanger the future of their city by quarreling among themselves.  McLean Bros., have secured the contract to bore the big tunnel near Brooklyn. They have arrived at Brooklyn  with an extensive outfit and have  already commenced work. The tunnel  proper is 3100 feet long but there is  also considerable rock work at the approaches thereto. Mclyean Bros, have'  also received a contract, for building  several miles of railway across the  summit above Christina Iyake.  A gentleman who has just returned  from Kast Kootenay reports that the  Crow's Nest railway is graded to Kus-  konook, the terminus on Kootenay  Iyake. All the contractors are packing tip and heading for Greenwood  with a view to securing contracts on  the Boundary Creek section of the Rob-  son railway. As these contractors  have their plants and employes, they  wiil in all probability secure contracts.  The C. P. R. is anxious to have the  railway completed as speedily as possible. Its now certain that active construction will begin in this vicinity  within a very short time.  Winters, Parsons & Boomer, who  have the contract for widening the  Trail-Rossland railway are finding  great difficulty in securing the 800 men  necessary to do the work. The employment of so many men on the railways now being constructed in the  province has made it difficult to secure  emploA'es for new work.  Over 800 employes of the Spokane  Falls & Northern Railway attended the  farewell picnic given by the president,  Mr. D. C. Corbin. The employes presented Mr: Corbin with a handsome  gold watch as a token of the high esteem in which he is held by them.  J. W. Kimball   has  been   appointed  auditor of the construction department,  of the Columbia  &  Western  Railway  from Robson to Midway.    Mr. Kimball  was secretary for the C. &   W.,   under  Mr. Heinze's management.  KILLED   HIMSELF.  Martin Tenasket, Chief of  the  Col-  ville Indians committed suicide on-Friday week last.    He lived with his family about one and a  half  miles  below  the mouth of Toroda creek.    Tenasket  had been  drinking heavily and threatened to  shoot  himself several  times.  His family becoming alarmed  hid  the  rifle but the chief watched his opporun-  ity  and  getting  the family   away he  found the hiding place of the.rifie.    He  fastened the trigger to his foot, placed,  the muzzle under his  chin   and   fired.  The bullet came out at the back of  his  head carrying with it the  greater portion  of  the  skull.    Death   must have  been instantaneous.  Chief Tenasket was one of the best  known Indians on the reservation.  His father was powerful and wealthy-  The Tenasket Indian school was called  after him. Martin Tenasket wasted  the large number of "cattle, and horses  left him by his father. He was about  50 years of age.  A   NUISANCE.  Horses decorated with huge cowbells  have become  an  unbearable nuisance  in the  city.    Those  who   endeavor to  get a night's sleep  shower execrations  upon them but they never get offended.  Indeed they show a still greater friendship by coming nearer one's  residence  and allowing the disturbed sleeper the  full benefit of the ceaseless tintinnabulations    of   that   tuneful   bell.    They  even invite their neighboring horses to  come over and serenade the  other side  of the residence.    The  man who decorates a horse with a cowbell and allows-  that horse to come within  one  mile of  the city limits ought to receive life imprisonment.    As far as the  horses are  concerned, the city  should  provide an  enclosure  where their  distracting  entertainments  could  be  given  without  endangering  the   reason   of   the long-  suffering inhabitants of the city.  in-  A.
