The Company on a Splendid Financial Footing���An Interesting Report Regarding Mine  Made by the Managing Director���The  Election of Officers.  A g-ood property with careful-management is'bound to come to the front.  Inferior raining- properties have been  made [prominent by the free use of  printer's ink and the freer use of the  names and standing- of the directors,  but the property of real merit will  secure its proper place without these  influences. The operations of the  "wild-catters" have been exceedingly  limited in the district. . Men with full ;  confidence in the mineral sesources of  the district expended their money in  development, with the result that today there are several- properties that  can be truthfully called mines, and the  district has an enviable' reputation in  the mining- arid financial centers^  The Golden Crown mine in Wellington camp maybe cited as;provirig\ they  truth of the assertion contained in the  above paragraph. Early in 1897 a  syndicate of Brandon, Manitoba, business men'secured the Golden Crown.  A company was organized and, they  and their friends extensively bought  the treasury shares. The company  made no effort to boom the sale of  stock. '��������� The money was spent in development, ������ and to-day the knowing-  ones are buying Golden Crown shares  at a g-ood- fig-ure, because the development work has demonstrated that the  Golden Crown will soon be a dividend-  paying mine.    '   '--��� ���  Under ' such ���' encouraging-  circum- '���  stances,   the   annual meeting of the  Brandon:^riAf.GoiA^nfCriiYr}a\^^^^iay'i?-\  held^at G'reenwTOd''6n:--;Thur^ctayj'.wasf  of the most satisfactory- nature; to the.  shareholders. ���' Hon.  T.  Mayne  Daly^  the president, Andrew Kelly, the vicer  president,   W." A,  Macdonald^Q.-C^  one of the directors, and W. L. Orde, ���  the secretary-treasurer, reached Greenwood on Wednesday evening.   At the  meeting  1,206,831  shares  were   represented.   The .following directors-were  elected for the current year: Hon. T.  Mayne Daly, Rossland ; Andrew Kelly,  Brandon;  W; J.   Porter,  Greenwood ;  W.  A.  Macdbnald.Q.C,  Nelson; G.  H. Collins, Greenwood; Hon.  Senator  .Kirchoffer,   Brandon;   J.   A;   Russell,  Greenwood; James  Currie, Montreal,  and.W. A. Fuller,  Spokane.    The directors appointed Hon. T. Mayne Daly,  president;   W.   J.   Porter,   vice-president; W. I/. Orde, secretary-treasurer,  and G. H. Collins,^ managing director.-  The financial statement,   which   was  laid   before   the meeting, was of the  most satisfactory! nature.-showing- suf- ~  ficient funds on hand to carry  on development work for a  long time..   The  managing director, was  authorized.to  purchase and install a  four-drill compressor plant.  . The report of the managing director  is interesting reading, not only because it describes in a conservative  way the progress made at the mine,  but in a measure outlines bright future  prospects for other mining properties  in    the    district.     The    shareholders  OF EVERY DESCRIPTION.  Always on hand, a full line of  Ledgers, Journals, Cash Books,  Record Books, Memos, Diaries,  Hotel Registers, etc.  &        T&       <&  SMITH  &  McRAE,  Books, Stationeiy, Wallpaper, Notions  . and Fancy Goods,  GREEN-WOOD.     B.C.  ���>^r  present at the meeting- were not slow  in complimenting- Mr. Collins upon the  excellent showing. They are unanimous in the opinion that much of the  success of the company is due to his  ability as a financier and mining- man.  The report of the managing director  will appear in Wednesday's issue.  Mr. Collins begins his report by  stating that since, the commencement  of operations in April, 1997, to March  ������1,1899, the sum of 524,500 was received  from the treasury. He then gives a detailed statement of how this money  was expenned.  CABINET   CHANGES.  Hon. Mr.  Semlln   Reconstructs   His   Government.  Hon. Mr. Semlin, owing- to advancing years, felt himself nnable to stand  thestrain necessitated by the incumbency of the position of chief commissioner of the lands and works de-  pa.tment, reconstructed his cabinet  last week.   The cabinet now stands :  Hon.-Dr. McKechnie, president of the  council. i '  Hon. C. A. Semlin. premier and provincial- secretary.  Hon.  F.  Carter-Cotton,   chief com-,  missidner   of   lands   and   works   and  minister of finance.  :    Hon.   J.   Fred.   Hume,   minister of  mines.  Hon. Joseph Martin, attorney-general  The West Fork Bridge.  The petition to tnfe.Government urg--  ,ing the immediate erection of the West  iFork bridge should receive its earliest  and most favorable consideration. If  the construction of the bridg-e is delayed  until July, the cost will be twice that  of the present time. The water is exceedingly low in the river at present,  and the erection of the necessary pier  jwould consequently be an'easy matter.  In the summer the river will be a rag-  :.ing^.torrent_arid.-the construction bf-thc  bridge-%ill ;then be difficult and dang-  ��� erous. .Money:will be saved by building the bridge immediately.  "���:'   ;���" l~'       NOTES.  W. M. Hall, of the firm of Hall, Rice  !&. Co.;, arrived from Chicago on Sun-  V day.   The  firm have taken temporary  officesacross from the postoffice.  Geo. M. Miller, who went over to  Rossland last week to meet the representative of a wholesale jewlery house,  has returned after purchasing- extensively, for his firm.  W. B. Paton   and   F.   N.   Cummings  returned   from  Camp McKinney this ,  week.   They started 'men  to  work on  the properties of the Camp McKinney  Mining and Milling company.  Dr. Christie's railway construction  location was responsible for a rush of  prospectors in the vicinity of Roy's  ranch, and the whole country has been  staked. The assays from the Ella  (the name under which the doctor's  property will struggle for fame) are- of  the most encouraging nature. An  average sample  gave ��13.50 in  gold.  The ore body on , the Knob Hill is  evidently without limit. This week,  while-waiting for the smoke to clear in  the drift, a couple of shots were fired  in the face of .the tunnel, and more ore  exposed. It was thought at 430 feet ���  the edge of the enormous ore body was :  reached. The wall turned out to be  only a narrow dyke, and the tunnel is  again in solid ore.  The Presbyterian congregation is  making arrangements to erect a church  and Sunday school. Up to the present  services have been conducted in Ren-  dell's hall but, owing to the growth of  the city, more room is required. The  congregation has secured a building  site on Long Lake street. A suitable  building will be erected as soon as ���  funds are available.  A prominent merchant has drawn"  attention to the fact that R. J. Whitla,  a wholesaler of Winnipeg-, was one of  the bitterest opponents of the Corbin  charter at the recent meeting of the  Winnipog board of trade. After doing  his best to retard the development of  this district by opposing aailway competition, Mr. Whitla sends postal cards *  to the merchants announcing that his  traveler will be in the district in a few  days', and requesting that orders be  held for him. The Boundary Creek  merchants all possess a large amount  of practical Christianity, but they are  not in the habit of turning the other  cheek. Strong supporters of the Corbin charter in Winnipeg arc Messrs.  Ashdowne and Blackwood. .���.���,���. rt^-.H-B.-^B-yyi ifll'Ki:1  i��TEai!����asiA5c'.��  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  J     H.

'    ���    -������:'���  ,. ; Several" of the'opposition papers'-;  are .'charging- Hon;'Joseph'Martin with-.-  inconsistency,' because he' favors .the'..'-  Corbin charter and at the . jsa'ihc "tifljus.it:  supported the' placer' mining alien exclusion bill,'- It-.'is;hn easy matter to  manufacture charg-es'of inconsistency  .'against opponents, a much easier niiit-I';-.  ter than supporting- certain actions of  political friends. ��,ast year :the Rev.  Geo. R. Maxwell, M. P., was strong.in  his denunciation of allowing ah American to build, a railway in the Boundary. Creek country-;; this year he is  equally   strong   in-his  support  of   an  ��� American'obsciirirlg the scenic beauties  of Stanley Park,-Vancouver, by the  construction of a large sawmill on'  Deadman's island. Last year- th.e  American and his railway interfered  with another railway scheme in which  Mr. Maxwell was interested'; this year  the American nnJ his'sawmill does not  conflict with Mr. Maxwell's private  interests. Last year the irrepressible  J. C. McLagan was found fighting  with Mr. Maxwell against the- American and his railway, because McLagan  and Maxwell were interested in'another  railway scheme ; this year McLagan  and Maxwell are fighting on opposite  sides, because the Vancouver American left McLagan out of his .sawmill  ..enterprise. Joe Martin would sooner  be right than be consistent; Maxwell  and McLagan care neither for consistency nor right,, so long as their pet  schemes are promoted. After all, consistency is an enetm' of progress.  TWO   MONTHS'    RECORD!

(2) Arranged for the purchase of land  for cemetery purposes without regard  to Sub-section 33 of Section SO.

(4) Dealt with the- assessment roll  contrary, to instructions contained iii  Section 117.  (5) Borrowed money oh the promissory note of the, mayor  and  city  cleric  before the passage of a.temporary loan  by-law.  ; Greenwood has now retrograded to  the position of Grand Forks in its early  municipal days. Most things are done  illegally,   and   the, city   solicitor   says  ' nothing.    There is some consolation in .  : the fact, that if nothing is  said,   there .  ��� is a saying clause in the Municipal Act  which makes illegal acts legal after a  certain time expires. .Some cities have  thrived in spite of bad municipal gov-  eminent.

He  sold   the   St.-  Lawrence in Deadwood camp and the  Tip Top and Banner fractionsjin Greenwood camp at good figures.  ��� The purchasers of the St. Lawrence  are a syndicate of Spokane  and,Van-,  cbuver capitalists.    The property is to  be stocked, the  treasury shares placed  on. the market  and  development woik'  commenced'at once.   'Tke balance of _  the stock will be pooled.  The St.���Lawrence adjoins the Mother  Lode in Deadwood camp on  the west,  and was a relocation  made  in February, 1896, by W. Lewis and Jas. Fisher.  About half of  the  then   population of  Greenwood were in the  midnight.rush  for   this claim.    After the staking the  locators hurried to the  record office'at  Midway, thinking that the  first to get '  there    would    have ' the   prior ; rig-lit" ;���  to the property;    Among the  number -  who arrived at" the! record .office about.:  3   o'clock  in  the  morning were   Jini  :H6oti and Billy.Lewis.-" Hood got there ;  first and fastened  himself to the door ���  knob. -The' recorcjer'^either ilrnaghijed  the   office   was: being  burglarized  or  'itwas a' sUpernaturar visitation^'" He'  however decided .to take'j'no: chances,  went bilt the'backtway  and.opened fire  from ,the corner of the buildiijg-.. Lewis  lost ii'o time in' locating another corner  of the record office, but  Hood stayed  with   the door  knob.     Finally, - after -  half a dozen   shots  were fired;-Hood  was winged v.aiid - decided- to leave the.';'  door  knob."

Keith and other local Irishmen  have arrang-ed for a grand ball to be  given in the Hunter.Kendrick building- this (Friday) evening-.  A petition is being circulated and  extensively sig-ned urg-ing- upon the  Government to secure the construction  of the West Fork bridge before hig-h  water comes. The petitioners point  out that at the present time the water  is low and the bridge could be more  conveniently built.  H. W. Kent, the g-eneral superintendent of the Nelson & Vernon Telephone  Company, arrived by the Penticton  stage on Wednesday. He is making  his first visit through the district. Mr.  Kent knew that Greenwood must be a  thriving place from the monthly receipts of the local telephone office, but  personal investigation confirmed his  previous favorable opinion.- He stated  that the Company were making a special effort to secure a better service at  an early date. Arrangements had  been made with the Inland Telephone  Company to extend its line to Cascade  City. When this is done the Nelson &  Vernon will work in connection with  the Inland Company instead of with  the S. & B. C. Company. The Inland  Company will also duplicate its wire  between Spokane and Rossland, thus  leaving one wire free for the Boundary  Creek business. Mr. Kent and Mr.  Hodg-e. the local superintendent, went  to Grand Forks on Thursday. Mr.  Kent   returns  to  Greenwood   today.  G. M. . Irishman, the well-known  traveling- man, was booking- orders in  the city this week.  -Hon.- T.  Mayne ���, Daly   returned   to  Rossland on. Friday.    The, other mem-;  bers of the party  will remain  in  the  district for several days.  The West Fork district is sure to  . attract a great deal of attention during  the summer; Beaverton is already on  the market, and another townsite is to  be surveyed at the junction of Beaver  Creek and the West Fork. This latter  townsite is owned by Messrs. Smatles  and Bell. The site is an excellent one,  and is a natural centre for the rich  mining- district. Messrs. Olson and  Phelan, of Greenwood, have decided  that Messrs. Smailes' and Bell's is the  most advantageous spot. Mr. Olson is  already on the ground superintending  the erection of a larg-e store and hotel,  which will be run by the firm.  ?�� 4* 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 %  J.
