The Sailor group of claims in Camp  McKinney have been acquired by a  company floated by Fox & Ross, Toronto. The shares were placed on the  Toronto market only a few days ago  and were eagerly purchased at 15  ' cents; As soon as the flotation was  announced in Greenwood local buyers  were many,and several thousand shares  changed' hands at 'Unit iiytire.' The  Sailor group was bonded by Messrs.  Naden, LaPiaiite, McEutire, McDonnell and Kerr of Greenwood, and H. T.  Ceperley of Vancouver about three  months ago. The Sailor was surveyed  into a townsite and several lots were  sold. Mr.'Fox came out from Toronto  and, haying seen the property, at once  opened negotiations for its purchase.  The sale was completed" and the company organized. The original bondholders secure S40,000. They paid only  SIS,000 for the property. In addition  to the tdwiisiteT,,which ought to prove  valuable, the Sailor is considered one  of the best, properties in Camp Mc-  Minney. Considerable development  work has been done on the property,,  uncovering strong ledges of rich ore.  The new company intend to begin development work at once.. Actiye=.  preparations are also being made to  take hold of the townsite proposition.  A sawmill is being placed on the  ground and several buildings will be  constructed.  '������'; A.;G. -Davis;-the local manager for  the company owning the Rambler in  Pass Creek camp, has received instructions to commence work at once  . and a force of men will go up to the  property next week. The Rambler  was located in 1896 by A. G. Davis and  Chas! Franks. It is situated about a  mile from the Summit hotel' and is  owned by a company composed princir.  pally of Fairhaven parties. On the;  property is a large iron capping 300  wide and 1200 long, through which  runs a porphyry dyke from 10 to 20  feet in width, separating two well-  defined ledges. On the west ledge  considerable development work* has  been done, consisting of open cuts and  40-foot shaft.- Sample assays, made  in Everett, gave S15 in gold and 12 1-5  per cent, copper. A sampls sent to  Rossland gave 11 per cent, copper,  $5.60 gold and 9 ounces silver. Very  little work has been done on the east  ledge. Surface assays gave about the  same values in gold as the west ledge  and over 50 ounces in silver. It is the  intention to sink the present shaft to  the 100-foot level, and at that depth  crosscut both ledges. Stock of the  company will shortly be placed on the  market, Messrs. McEntire McDonnell  & Co; being the local brokers.  F. M. Kerby, C. E., has gone to  Greenwood camp to, survey the Chancellor and other claims for J. Moran.  C. ,^!. Shiw, CIS.,'is also busy surveying Greenwood camp claims.  j"      F.   W.   Groves,   C. E., has   returnedr  from Camp McKinney where  he surveyed   the, claims   belonging   to    the  Camp   McKinney   Gold  Mining  com-'  '{   pany.  1 W.S. Keith, M. E., returned from  : Camp McKinney on Wednesday. He  I secured options on two or three protnis-  !    ing properties.  Karl Nelson, who owns several Pass '  ���    Creek   properties,  has  returned from  Kaslo and will soon   begin work on his  claims. ���  BOGLE'S   OBSERVATIONS.  ��� I, '   ',   ,���    .���������.   :���'������"���  Mr. D. B. Bogle was Favorably Impressed with  Boundary Creek.  Mr." D." B; Bogle, the well known  Rossland mining and newspaper expert, has been interviewed, by the  Rossland Miner regarding.'his recent  trip to Boundary Creek. The following  is a portion of the interview :���  "The mail arrangements are. giving  great .dissatisfaction   at    Greenwood,  and particularly, with reference to mail  ��� connections with Rbsslaiid and Nelson.  It  seems   to  be  quite   usual   for   mail  ��� matter to .,be  held over  for 24  hours,  and sometimes even sent back to where  it  came   from.     This   is  a matter the  boards of trade in   this  country   would  , do ��� well "to take up.    Our business relations with   the  Boundary   country   depend   very . much   on ;mi'adequate mail  service.    The first mining camp tapped  by   the  stage  road   is  the Wellington  Camp,    about    equally    distant    from  , Grand  Forks  and  Greenwood.     It  is  here  that  the  Winnipeg- and Brandon  & Golden Crown are situated.    ,These  properties  are  apparently showing up  " splendidly."    The   Brandon   &   Golden  ���Grown is now universally spoken of as  a  proved  mine, and very conservative  mining men express'the opinion that it  is one of the big mines of the country. .  "About half-way between Wellington  Campand Greenwood is the Greenwood  J Camp,i where-.the  town  of  Phoenix   is  already being built up.'   The standard-  bearers of this camp are the Knob Hill  and Old Ironsides.    If these mines are  one-tenth as good as public report, and.  that from reliable  sources, .gives  out,  why, then, they are enough to guarantee a brisk town in their vicinity,   and  double  the  gold  production of British,  Columbia.     From   Phoenix   to   Greenwood is a down-hill pull, and  probably  the least wearisome part of the journey.  "In   Greenwood   the  energy   of  the  whole country is at present concentrated ;    the  town   is   booming,  buildings  are going iip in all directions, and still  there is no room for the people who are  pouring  in.     It   is  the. counterpart of  Rossland in 1896.    One cannot  bnt  be  struck by  the  enthusiasm   and   confidence  of  the  people.     A  casual visit  gives one only a  glimpse of the vast  mining ^territory, and important interests which are   centred   there.     In   all'  directions  .ire  mining camps opening  tip, and the  people  are   in   the   happy  condition   where, in the future of,their  town, they see,visions of great  wealth  and   prosperity  for  themselves.    May  all these hopes be realized.     The  road  from Greenwood to Midway, where the  boundary   line   and   the  Kettle   River  .valley  are   touched   at  the same time,  lies down Boundary Creek.    Unfortunately for pleasant  travel   the  railway  will  run down  Boundary  Creek also.  The road is  cut  all   to  pieces  by   the  debris  from   the  grade and the heavy  travel over it.     Along  here  ���iiui^s of  swarthy   Italians   keep   rolling   down  rocks upon the unsuspecting wayfarer's  head."  ^k*  OF EVERY DESCRIPTION.

TRAVELLING   UNDER   DIFFICULTIES.  The Warm Weather is Fast Breaking up the  Road.  The warm weather has made the  roads in an almost impassable condition. The snow on the valleys and in  the mountain sides has almost entirely  disappeared, while the summits are  still covered. This necessitates several changes from runners to wheels.  The Snodgrass stages arc making good  time, however, and have not missed a  trip so far. In order to give more time  on the Grand Forks route a stage  leaves Grand Forks every morning,  and another leaves Greenwood every  morning. L,ast year the road on the  Summit became so bad that for two  weeks the mail had to be carried on  horseback. There is not so much snow  this Year.  ^Kfc-  ! Dr. R. S. Hanna. a . graduate of the  i Philadelphia Dental college, has ar-  ' rived in the city and will probably re-  j main here. Dr. Ilaiina lived for several  ;   ��� years   in    British    Columbia,    but   for  some time past was located in Everett.  IJntill lie can secure offices he will be  1    found at the Greenwood hotel, THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES.  /.  H.   HALLETT,  Z��<xxx\sttx, Jloftctfor,  NOTARY   PUBLIC.

Tun election of Mr. Robert Wood by  acclamation as an alderman for the  North ward was a proper tribute to his  enterprise and keen interest-in promoting; the welfare of the city. Mr.  Wood decided last year to retire from  the municipal council but the unhappy  complications which arose during- the  brief existence of the present council  induced him to ag-ain offer his services.  In the South ward, the electors have  an opportunity of electing- g-ood aldermen. Mr. G-. Arthur Rendell, the  senior member of the firm of Rendell  & Co., has had municipal experience.  He has heavy interests in the city, is a  good business man and should be  elected. Mr. Thos. McDonnell also  ���has heavy interests in the South  ward and other parts of the city. He  is established in business in the city  and will make an excellent alderman.  Mr. Georg-e H. Cropley is also in business   in   the  city.    If  elected   he  will  make a g^ood alderman if he does not  allow himself to be controlled by influences which placed him in nomination.' The most serious objection to  the candidature of Mr. J. A. Cameron  is that he is no longer a resident of  the city. He resides at Long- Lake,  where he has heavy mining" interests.  If elected he will scarcely be in a position to g-ive civic affairs that close attention their importance warrants.  Tin; election of g-ood men is of  greater importance than the triumph  of machine politics.  Should .the mayor have his way  those having-full control of municipal  affairs'for the balance of the year will  be Thos. Hardy, James Sutherland,  Geo. H. Cropley and J. A. Cameron.  RAILWAY BUILDING.  Nkwspai'Kk  men are the most enterprising- people in the world.'   It is their  duty to serve readers with   interesting-  facts, and if the  facts are  hot  available, readers  are   interested anyway.  During- the past few weeks  the dailies  which find  their  way  to  Greenwood,  and papers that  are not dailies, have  g-iven   more   or   less   attention   to the  railway's   which   are  to  be  built  into  Republic and Boundary Creek.    When  all the projected roads are constructed  the country  between  Columbia river  and Greenwood will be  covered with a  veritable   network of railways.    The  g-entleman on whose shoulders is to be  1 placed the responsibility of  constructing- the majority  of  the  lines  is  Mr.  John P. Stevens.    John F. Stevens is  a modest   g-entleman   and   a.  brilliant  railway   engineer.    According-   to   reports, he is an  agent of the C. P. R.,  an eng-ineer   for    the    Coluriibia   and  Western contractors  and   and   a confi-'.'  , dential   engineering   expert   for   Jim  Hill. ���    The     Spokane    papers    have  graphically told , how he went to Spokane disguised as a  tramp, in order to  confer with  Mr.   Hill  about  the construction of a  road  to Republic.    Mr.  Stevens was an engineer in the employ  of the Great Northern.    Messrs. Mann,  Foley Bros. & Larsen, recognizing his  ability, engaged him   to  help  them in.  constructing-   the*  heavy    road   from  Robson to Penticton. He left the work  near Brooklyn, went to  Spokane,   arrived there late, and  was  carried off  to the theatre   by   Jim  Hill   and  his  friends before he had time  to put on a  boiled shirt   arid  stand-up  collar. ��� So  much for the tramp story.   ���  Many of the other rail way rumor  are equally interesting and almost as  unreliable. It is reported that the C.  P. R. have made arrangements to build  a line for the Great Northern to Republic and that Mr. Corbin has quarrelled with Jim Hill and refuses to  bring any trade to his road. It is  stated that Mr. Corbin has made arrangements to build from some point  on the Northern Pacific to Republic  and northward to Boundary Creek.  These are only a few of the railways  being projected by enterprising newspapers. It would not be safe to bank  too much on the projected lines. It is  quite probable that the only railway  that is likely to be built in the district  is the Kettle River road.  HE -GREENWOOD 110  Is now open under the  Management  of .... .  - - cJ. L.

has.been connected with  the working
shaft at the 200-foot level.    The distance between  the  two shafts  is 282
'feet.    The connecting drift is 240 feet
in ledg-e  matter, 83 feet of which  is
pay ore.    The air shaft  is   being sunk
to the 300-foot level,  and, when  completed crosscuts will be run north and
south.    By  connecting-  the two shafts .
a splendid current of  air is secured in
■all the workings.    The Jup'raise.; from
;the tunnel in; the Knob Hill to the surface is  now .up a  distance of 70 feet.
;-The entire distance ' to  the cut is 126
feet.    The upraise  is  in  ore. , In fact
•there appears to be ore everywhere on
■thosetwb wonderful  properties.    The
80-horsepower    boiler    recently    purchased from  F.   R.   Mendenhall,  has
been used for several weeks and is giving entire satisfaction.     The second
half of the  10-drill  compressor is  expected daily at the mine.   The latter
part has all  the clatest improvements
and   is   consequently© a   much better
piece of machinery than  the first half,
which has done good service in the development of the properties.
_; Smallpox with the Hill Party.
A St. Paul despatch says that J. H.
Carter, colored, was yesterday sent to
the pest-house, being" discovered to
have a clearly developed case of smallpox. Carter is a sleeping-car porter,
and just came from Spokane. He was
employed on a,special on which President": :Hill ; and other. officials of the
Great Northern jRailway, who are now
making- a tour of inspection of that
road. He was sick while with the Hill
party, and continued at work until the
close of the week, when he was apparently unable, to continue at work, and
from Spokane he came to this city. As
soon as it.was learned that Carter: had
the smallpox, a telegram was sent to
■President"Hill, and his private car was
fumig-ated thoroughly, and his entire
party vaccinated.■•'

To the Editor:—It has been • a surprise to many of Mayor Hardy's.supporters-; that he', would endeavor to dc-"
feat Mr. Rendell by. nominating-Mr.
Cameron. I have no objection to Mr.
Cameron, but it surely cannot be said
for him that he is thoroughly acquainted with the management of city busi-
'riess ; besides he is busy at the Lakeside mine, where he lives, and cannot
be here to do his duty as an alderman.
I think'this party feeling has g-one too
far when .the mayor is trying to defeat
the pioneer business man of the district
in such a way. I supported Mr. Hardy
in the last election, but I am not going
to support his candidates this time as I
think Mr. Rendell and Mr. McDonnell
will make good aldermen, and the city
has had enough of petty squabbles. I
hope that all those, having- interests in
the city will vote, for Arthur Rendell
and Thos. McDonnell. They are
among, the best men that could be in
the council." T     Elector.

W. R. Angus, the well known traveling- man, was in the city this week.  F. C. Wolfenden, secretary of the  Okanagfan Elour Mills company, is in  the city. '-'���'-..,  Rev. H. B. Balderfson will hold divine  service in Rendell's hall on Sunday  morning-, March 12th, at 11 o'clock.  Dr. Foster, who has charge of the  C. P. R. hospital at Greenwood, has  taken  offices  in  the Barrett Block.  Mr. S. W. Edwards and bride arrived from the east on Wednesday and  have .started, hottseheeping- in their  residence in Shawville.  L. M. Rice, the eng-ineer in charge  of this end of the railway, has moved  his headquarters to Greenwood. He  has taken offices above Rendell & Co's  new store.  J. T. Wilkinson, traveling- representative of the Vancouver Daily Province, was in the city for several days  this week. The Province is one of the  brightest dailies in B. C.  . The force of men on the channel for  Boundary Creek has been doubled, and  rapid progress is now being- made. The  contractors have received instructions  to rush the work as the C. P. R. and  townsite company are anxious that the  channel should be completed before  hig-h  water comes.  An engineering- party left Spokane  on Monday to survey a line of railway  up the San Poil River to Republic.  This is the alternative route which it  was supposed Mr. Corbin might utilize  to g-et into Republic when he was  refused the Kettle River charter last  year. The eng-ineering party is out  for the Great Northern Railway.  The very latest town in the great  mining belt of Southern Yale is Beaver-  ton. The townsite is controlled by W.  T. Thompson of Midway and his associates. It is located about 2,!-2 miles  from the mouth of Beaver creek in the  heart of a promising- mining- section.  ��� The present C.' P. R. survey of the  West Fork railway terminates at this  point. Mr. Thompson will have lots  for sale in a few days.  The city council has made arranye-  ments to purchase two lots on Greenwood street, above Government. It is  the intention to build thereon a two-  story building-. The ground floor will  be used as a fire hall and the upper  floor will be divided into a council  chamber and firemen's sleeping- ap-  partments. It is also probable that arrangements will be made for one or  two cells in the building, as the provincial jail is at present too far from  the business center. The police officers find it a very difficult matter to  haul drunks and incapables from the  city to the lock-up.  W. T. Thompson is ag-ain about after  a  second attack of pneumonia.  IS. Woolrich has arrived in the city  to take charg-e of the Boundary Creek  ag'ency of the Hamilton Powder company. Mr. Woolrich was for some  time connected with the Nelson branch.  Geo. R. Naden was ag-ent for the company since the local branch was established, but the business has increased  to such an extent that it was found  necessary to have an ag-ent who.could  give his whole time to the work.  W. F. Tye, chief eng-ineer of the  Columbia & Western Railway, was in  the city for several clays this week.  He reports that g-ood progress is being-  made all along- the line of railway, and  still holds to the opinion that Greenwood will be invaded by the iron horse  early in June. The track is laid for  about 16 miles from Robson. From  this point a series of high bridg-es have  delayed the tracklaying-. As soon as  the bridge-work is completed the track  ���will be rushed through to Greenwood.  Were the contractors not delayed by  the big- bridg-es, 90 miles of track could  have been laid at the present time.  The greater portion ot the grading- is  finished. The big- tunnel at Brooklyn  will not be completed for some time,  but a switchback has been graded over  the hill, and will be used until the  tunnel is completed. The contractors  between Greenwood and Midway should  be forced to keep open the wajron road.  Travelling- between the two points at  the present time is not without clanger.  A good showing- is being- made on the  railway work, but the wagon road is  g-etting-  worse  every day.  %4r4-4- 4- * 4* 4- 4- 4* # te  Thos. McDonnell, who has been east  for several weeks, reached home today.  Residential lots have been in greater  demand during- the week. Heretofore  speculation was confined to business  lots on Copper and Government streets.  The Bealey company sold two lots on  the Barbara addition for S2,000, and  several lots on the first bench have  been promised and will be transferred  as soon as Mr. Johnson can get the  property subdivided.
