BIG SHIPPING USES  GETTING   READY   TO   SHIP   ORE  The Mother Lode and Its Possibilities���The  Price of Stock���Work on Other Properties��� Promlsine Outlook for the, West-  Fork Country���Notes.   .  Each week sees a decided change in  all the big* Boundary Greek mines.  There is a big surprise in store for the  Canadian Pacific Railway company.  If the rapid development of the last  two months continues until the . railway reaches here, the t>ig railway company will be'forced to hustle in order  to handle all the ore that will be offered.  Negotiations are. in progress for the  erection of several smelters in the  Boundary Creek valley. The C. P. R.  smelter at Cascade is under way, and  the Granby Mining and smelting company will soon begin work. Men with  plenty of money back of them are trying to purchase the water power at  Boundary Falls'with a view to utiliz-  : in gthe power, and building reduction  works below. The construction of big  smelters is a slow process at best,  however, and the j railway, will be-  forced to devise some means of handling the ore; It is difficult to realize  the enormous possibilities of the district so far as a daily output is concerned. In this connection, H. S.  Wallace, ex-mayor of Rossland, tells a,  good story : Mr. Johns, the superin-"  tendent of the Mother Lode, is most.  enthusiastic concerning' this , famous  property. He takes keen delight in  astonishing visitors, by pointing out  tiie large ore body atid in witnessing  their surprise at the manner in which  the "property-* is being .developed. Mr..  Johns is well known in ,;Rossland;;  "You can teli Nick Traghey of the  LeRoi," he stated to Mr. Wallace, "and  the superintendent of the , War Eagle  and the superintendent of the Center  Star that in less than a year the.  Mother Lode can ship more ore than  the three combined.. If the^^ don't be-  believe me, let them cohie oyer and see  for themselves. If they are not then  convinced I will pay their expenses.'.'*  One "cannot inspect the workings at  the Mother Lode without being convinced that Mr. Johns' enthusiasm is  fully justified.. Another report :comes  from Boston with reference to ^this-  property. It will be remembered that  when the British Columbia; Copper  company was organized the par value  of the shares was: fixed at $5. The  shares are iiow quoted on the Boston  -market .at-$11 and ; no sellers at this  figure. Basing the value of the mine  on the market price of the shares, the  Mother Lode is worth  over $2,000,000. -  The seventeen miners at the B. C.  are making* a good weekly showing*.  The work at the 200-foot level is in  some very rich ore. Still better progress will be made when the 40-horse-  power boiler recently purchased is installed.   .  Mr. W. L. Hogg of Montroal is daily  expected in the city. He is the owne-i  of the Sunset mine in Deadwood camp,  where a force of men are at work.  The owners of the King Solomon  mine in Copper camp are not anxious  that anything should   be  made public  OF EVERY DESCRIPTION.  Always on hand, a full line of  Ledgers, Journals, Cash Books,  Fecord Books, Memos, Diaries,  Hotel Registers, etc,  ��=    ,-->    0  SMITH  &  McRAE,  Books, Stationery, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GREEN-WOOD,     B.C.  ^mmm??????m?????Tn?n!H?f????????mT?T?f??nT?!nH?H???????t??n?rmm??T??n!?mmf?T?n?????T?TT^;  regarding their property. It is understood, however, that the outlook is  very favorable and that the property  is being- rapidly developed to that  point where a steady output; of rich  copper ore can be maintained.  The work on the Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill, Stemwinder and Brooklyn,  and the Winnipeg and Golden Crown  is being vigorously prosecuted.  Now that the provincial government  has voted a, substantial appropriation  for the construction of the West Fork  road, and the C. P.; R. is surveying a  - route for a railway, more attention is  being directed to the mining interests  in.this promising district. During the  next few months claim holders will go  there to continue.development work  and many prospectors' have signified  their intention of spending the' summer in that "locality. . Business men,  too, are keeping their eyes turned  West Forkward. Guise has decided to  open a store there, and.;, it is quite  probable that, the firm of Olson &  Phelan will open a branch. ���  The mining market has been active  during the week arid there have been  many inquiries from the outside for  Boundary Creek stocks. Camp McKinney M, & M. Co. has had a rapid  .sale, local buyers beirig- numerous.  There are many purchasers of Boundary Greek M. & M. at 10 cents. 1). A.  ,Holbrook sold a. large block in Rossland last week at this figure. Morrison has gone: up * to 19 cents aiid is  difficult'to get at that figure. ' The  Brandon and' Golden '.Crown is.'quoted  at 28 cents, but 30 .cents is asked for  the greater portion of the stock in the  market.  flUpiNG   NOTES  ���:.;���"; :������ ",   ��� .��� &\   '%r~ :. -���/ ���'���'.'.  '  The ledge on   the   Sailor   in  Camp  McKinney.has been  stripped for a distance jof 1800 feiet and a shaft, has been  . sunk to a depth of CO feet.  A. J. Percival. during his recent  visit to Camp McKinney, purchased  the Cariboo No. 2. This claim joins  the great Cariboo on the north and has  two well defined ledges.  Another quarter interest in the London has been acquired by W. S. Keith  from Harry Wright. The London is a  - Deadwood camp claim ;lying west of  the Mother Lode.. Mr. Keith now  owns a half interest in the property.  Percy Godenrath, traveling correspondent of the Spokesman-Review,  passed through the city on Wednesday  en route to Camp McKinney. He has  caught the Camp McKinney fever and  it is'quite possible teat he may decide  to remain in this promising camp.  A 40-horsepower boiler has been  purchased froni the Iiigersqll-Serge.Ltit'  company.,'.for' the B. ('. mine. The  ..boiler will be ��� t ikeii to the mine at  once and will be used as an auxiliary  to the present plant, pending the arrival of the big plant ordered for the  property.   ;    '���'������.  The Baltimore company, which h:is  acquired the Baltimore claim, recently  elected directors as follows: Chas.  Arpere, sheriff, St. John's; Isaac  Fraterman, oil refiner ; James Brooks,  carriage manufacturer; John A.  Moody, biooker; John M. Mclntyre,  secretary, London, Out., and James  Baxter, broker, St. Mary's. The company intend beginning operations in  May and Mr. Moody announces that  sufficient funds are in the treasury to  continue work for two years without  further sale of stock.  The high price of copper has done  more than anything else to turn the  attention of investors towards Boundary Creek. There are several experts  in the district examining properties  for large investors. John Boultbee, of  Rossland, has an advertisement in this  issue in which he expresses his desire  to buy a developed copper-gold property for clients.  H. S. Wallace of Rossland was in  the city for several days this week.  Mr. Wallace was mayor of Rossland  last year and Is one of the most successful business men in that thriving  city. He is also one of the directors of  the Bealey Investment and Trust company. With Mr. Naden, the managing director, he visited some of the big  properties of the district. Mr. Wallace fully endorses all the encomiums  that have been delivered concerning  the mineral resources of the district.  He was accompanied by his i,rother-iii-  law, Mr. MacDoiiaid, ��w.-:����i��j*ha"aiV&-r5a-t32STi,.s  ssffiii-iasewa:  l^IT!.'-!���^^  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  /     H.

The position taken by the Nelson  Miner with reference to granting- a  charter to the Kettle River railway,  would be inexplicable .were it not for  the fact that the editor is a graduate  of the Maniloba Free Press.. It appears that the great influence which  the Canadian Hacific Railway company exerted over that journal has  contaminated every one connected  with it to such an extent, that when  one of its editorial writers comes to  British Columbia and is in a position  to know the right he still pursues the  wrong. There is some excuse for opposition to the charter from those who  are unacquainted with the facts and i  are misled by the specious arguments of the Canadian Pacific Railway company, but when a newspaper  writer is in a position to kqow the  facts his opposition to the charter cannot but be strongly condemned.  The Nelson Miner  finds  fault with  the Winnipeg board of trade for passing* a resolution in favor of the charter  arid is much concerned because the  Winnipeg jobbers are not protecting  their own interests. The Miner need  have no fear on this score. The Winnipeg jobbers are quite capable of  looking after themselves and it is for  this raason thej' are strongly supporting the application for a charter. If  Ashdown .and Blackwood and other  wholesale men of Winnipeg who do a  large business' in Boundary Creek  know that 75 per cent, of the goods  ordered are routed by American lines,  they are sufficiently wide-awake to  know-that they and their customers  will profit by extending the system  that is extensively now .used into' the  , business centers of Boundary Creek.  A stalwart champion of the Kettle  River road has been  lost m  the person  of Mr.  R.  W.   Jameson,  M.   P.,  whose last public act was  to valiantly  fight for the people of Boundary Creek.  When an   effort  was  made  to pass  a  resolution   against   the   charter at   a  meeting   of   the   Winnipeg  board    of  trade, Mr. Jameson  made  a vigorous  speech   and  succeeded   in  carrying  a  favorable    amendment    by    a   large  majority.    Two   hours afterwards, he  accidentally  shot  himself  at'his own  home and died  instantly.    The death  of Mr. Jameson will be mourned not  only by the people of Boundary Creek,  whose rights he  championed in parliament last year, but by the country at  large.  Mr. Jameson took  the  ground  that  ��� British Columbia should be left free to  permit the construction of any railway  the   people   desired,  just    as   twelve  years ago he vigorously contended for  the same principle so far as Manitoba  was concerned, in the memorable anti-  disallowance movement,  in  which he  took a prominent 'part.    Mr.  Jameson  spoke   in   good form,   and   his   well-  rounded   sentences  in  support  of the  principle ' that   no   railway   company  should be allowed tc/enjo*y��a monopoly  prejudicial to  the country's interests,  were listened to with  close attention  by the large number present.    He defined   his   attitude   on   the matter in  most   emphatic   terms,    stating    that  ' whether   or   not   the   board  of trade  favored the granting of a charter to   L  the Kettle River Valley  Railway company, he would continue in  the posi- ,  tion he had occupied since the matter  was first  brought  to  the  attention of  the house of Commons at Ottawa.  Mr. Jameson's view is the correct  one. Without an accurate knowledge  of the local conditions, it would be  quite possible and quite inexcusable if  Mr. Jameson'looked at the matter front  an opposite point of view. The-Nelson  Miner is guilty either of inexcusable  ignorance or an unpatriotic eagerness  to promote the monopolistic ideas of  the C. P. R., regardless of the interests  of the people of Southern British  Columbia.  THE   ALDERMANIC ELECTIONS.  The electors have an important duty  to perform on Saturday next. Greenwood has arrived at that stage when  a wise and efficient municipal council  can do much in using the activity of  to-day for the permanent benefit of  the city. On the other hand a weak  and incapable council can and will do  much to retard its development. It is  of the utmost importance that the very  best available men should be elected  to fill the vacancies. The average  elector is heartily sick of the futile at-e  tempt to make the administration of  municipal affairs subservient to badly  constructed and worse regulated machine politics, and are consequently  thankful for the opportunity to return  men who are qualified to properly  carry on the business of the city.  The bye-election is in itself striking  evidence of the fact that the mayor  and his supporters .are greatly in need  of additional members of the council  who will do more for the interests of  the city than the interests of a few  individuals. They persisted in nominating unqualified persons at the general election and persisted in illegally  appointing an alderman to fill a  vacancy. They attempted to run the  city regardless of the law. They have  been taught a lesson and should now  welcome the co-operation of those who  are capable of shouldering the grave  responsibilities attached to the proper  conduct of the business of the city.  TEi.r. it not in Gath; proclaim it  not in the streets of Askelon! Mr.  Phelan was appointed an alderman on  the advice of the city solicitor.  The Times is still ot the opinion  that it will cost the city more than $25  a month to have Andrew Leamy as  city solicitor.  A working majority secured in  contravention of the Municipal Elections act is an unstable affair.  Not in real estate, however..

'���'  Believers in' Greenwood base1 their  belief upon the fact, that the town is  , the center of a district 20 miles square,  ; within which lie no less than a dozen  mining camps already partially opened  up. Most of the claims are only in a  prospect state, but a number have been  brought to that point where they are  ready to ship ore, and shipments will  be begun when the C. P. R. reaches  therei-in. the course of "three months  or so. ���   .    .��� :.      ,������������'���  The mineral deposits, in the district  are gold, copper and silver, and most  of the properties are smelting propositions. Montreal,.as well ,as Toronto,  capitalists have Jbecome interested in  the Greenwood region/as is instanced  by the fact that Montreal money :has  been put -into" the B.

FIGHTING   JOE; IN   A   GOOD   FIGHT.  He Writes a Strong Letter in Favor of the  Corbin Charter.  The following letter from Hon.  Joseph Martin to R. L��. Richardson, M.  P.; was read at the recent meeting* of  ��� the Winnipeg board of trade: . .  My Dear   Richardson:   Yours  of  "the 8th instant at- hand. I would be  very sorry to learn that the Winnipeg  .board of trade had made any such  recommendation as you suggest. It  seems to me that there is really no  arg*ument in favor of preventing any  capitalist, American or Canadian,from  building railroads in Canada, if he  wishes .to do so without any cost to the  public. It is, I think,' the first time in  the history of Cahada that the Dominion parliament have deliberately  excluded a railway in an' unoccupied  territory, under circumstances such as  have existed in the Boundary Creek  district.* The fact that the Canadian  Pacific are building into the country  does not, it appears-to me, afford any  excuse whatever forithe exclusion of  the Corbin road. All other parts of  the Kootenay are now in the possession  ���of railway competition, and it is intended by the course heretofore pursued to.; prevent the Boundary Creek  district from reaping the benefit of  that competition. When it is remem-  beredthat the C. P. R. owns the only  smelter available for the purpose of  developing that district, you can understand what a terrible blow it is to  the mining interest there to be absolutely in the power of this company.  On the other hand, if the Corbin road  gets in, not only will the district have  railway competition, but also smelting  competition-   The fact that the ores  are sent to the United States to be  smelted seems to me to cut no figure  . whatever, in this controversy. It makes  me tired -to hear an argument like this  produced* when it is well known that it  would be-very much to the-advantage  of Canada to have more trade with the  United States.. At present- the .great  bulk of th'e ores produced in the Kootenay are smelted in the United States,  notwithstanding the fact that the  Canadian: Pacific extends all through  the Kootenay district. The C. P. R.  branch which is being* built into the  Boundary 'country is in receipt of a  bonus from .-this., province, of $4,000 per  mile.   .Yours faithfully,  Joseph Martin.

The act, granting a  subsidy for a railway from Boundary  Creek to Okanag*an lake, passed without amendment.  A fire alarm- brought three or font-  hundred people to the postoffice building*, on Friday afternoon, an overheated pipe causing some alarm for a  few minutes. The volunteer fire department soon remedied the matter  without any loss.  Two men were arrested by Chief  McLaren this week for fighting. They  followed another man into Law's store  and were proceeding to maltreat him,  when Mr. Law threw one of them into  the street and D. A. Mackenzie the  other.
