Three Times���A Good Ore   Body on the  :  Property���Perciyal's Purchase.  The Snowshoe is bonded ag-ain for a  big   fig-ure.     .There   is  something- peculiarly attractive  in this property for  the experienced mining- man and he is  always anxious to secure  it under his  control,   years ago George Turner of  Vancouver  bonded  the  property,  but  his business, affairs called   him   elsewhere; then; Patrick Clark secured a  bond   and   did   considerable   development   work.    He reluctantly  left the  : mine to give his attention   to Republic  properties,:in which he was heavily interested.   No 'sooner   was   the  Glark  bond cancelled than the -Kootenay Development company rebonded the'prop-  erty,;for $6S,000.;   This  company did  considerable work  and paid $6,500 on  .account of the bond.'  'For some reason  ,.'known-only   to   the   members   of the  ���company,>:the  money   was  not  forth-  ��� coming;to meet  the   second   payment.'  This   week* J.. W.   Astley,  the   well-  known    Rossland     mining    engineer,  took a bond on the property for $70,000.  Ten-per cent, is to be  paid in cash  within two weeks.    It is  reported that  Mr.  Astley   represents  the Kootenay  Development    company^    reorganized  with new men and more  money.   The ���  -Snowshoe  is  in  the group of famous  Greenwood   camp properties.   It .lies  adjacent  to  the ���Stemwinder. pni |brie  ��� side,'the Rawhide on' the other and the  Old Ironsides  in. front.    It is  a full,  crown-granted    claim.      Considerable  L(work-has.been.^dohe 'op. the..'-.nropertj. :  There is an incline  shaft  for 170 feet.  At the 70-foot'level a crosscut runs for .  a distance of 38 feet  in ore, and at 120  feet there are 175 feet in crosscuts and  drifts.    At   this   level   two ore   veins  were crosscut.    One  is 40 feet  wide,  while the hanging   wall  on   the  other  vein has not been'reached.    The ore is  a copper pyrites in a mixed gangue of  calcite, with some specularite and iron  pyrites.     From  the  old  17-foot  shaft  values of $10 to $30   in  gold  and  3 to  16 per cent, copper, we're secured.   An  average sample from the new workings  gave  copper 14.6  per  cent.,  silver 80  ounces and gold $10 to $15.    The ore is  self-fluxing.    The  Snowshoe is owned  by   Robert   Wood,  Thos.   McDonnell  and   Root. ���: Denzler,  each   holding  a  third . interest.   _. Mr. ; Astley   has   returned to -Rossland   to  make, final arrangements    for    closing    the    deal.  When  these  are completed, work will  be commenced on tlie property.  PERCIYAL'S   PURCHASE.  Buys .'the Pender   in Camp McKinney���Strike  on the O'Shea.  A. J.

The regular meeting- of the city  council was held in the courthouse on  Monday evening. Mayor Hardy presided and Aldermen Naden, Galloway,  Wood, Sutherland, Cameron and Crop-  ley were present. The minutes of the  last meeting were read and adopted.  . J. E. Schon, medical officer of health,  wrote stig-gesting several methods by  which the sanitary condition of the  city could be, improved. He recommended that the scavenger .be appointed and paid by the ccouncil, that  all refuse be removed at least once a  week, and that a system of sub-irrigation be introduced to g-et rid of dirty  water. He also .wanted, the medical  men and school teacher to report cases  of contagious diseases. The letter was .  tabled for future consideration.  Messrs. Rendell & Co.,Elkins,Powell,  Posty and Villandree complained that,  they could" not begin building until  they were furnished with proper levels  and they could not find the city eng-i-  5 neer. The council,will make an effort  to secure- the engineer, who is surveying mineral claims. It was also decided that he is to prepare a plan of  the street grade, place grade monuments on, every crossing, so that any  engineer will be in a position to give,  levels.;.   ,������'���-��� .- ������-'.'  _ Vernon W./Smith  wanted :the street;  railway and "'offered  toT.pay  3 cent* a  yard for earth moved by it. Mr. Smith  can.have the>railway if not  in   use by  the city.  W. S. Keith returned the assessment  roll and asked for three days to issue  notices. The request was granted.  The court of revision will be held on  April 27th, and Mayor Hardy, Aldermen Sutherland, Cameron, Cropley  and Wood will be the members thereof.  F. J. Tytler of Vancouver wished to  be ^appointed consulting- engineer for  the city. His letter was tabled for  future consideration. '  The Boundary Creek Printing and  Publishing company declined to tender  for the city printing,- and protested  against the call for new tenders when  the first tenders were made public.  The Greenwood Miner offered to do the  advertising at a rate of 5 cents for  first insertion and 2 cents for each sub- .  sequent, insertion.  Mayor Hardy was in favor of having-  the work done cheaply.  Alderman Galloway considered -it.  unbusinesslike to read tenders in open  ���meeting- and then call for new tenders.  If they called for tenders again they  might g-et the work done still cheaper,  .but the course is not fair or businesslike. Alderman Naden endorsed Alderman Galloway's1 views.  Alderman Galloway moved and Alderman Naden seconded,, that tenders  be rejected and that the question of  city printing- remain as it is.. This  resolution was carried unanimously.       y  Alderman Sutherland moved that  the city clerk be instructed to call for  hc-V tenders. Alderman Wood seconded  the resolution and it was carried.  Several accounts, including one from  the Russell Hardware company, were  referred -to the finance committee to  be paid if found correct.  A by-law granting certain privileges  to the Greenwood Waterpower company, another dealing with sanitary  matters and a third to borrow $5,500  temporarily, were all considered.  The Columbia Telephone company's  right-of-way by-law was not considered, as there was no one present to  represent the company.  Chief McLaren was authorized to  engage a special constable to take Mc-  Glade. charged with theft, to the Kamloops jail.   Tlie water pipe.�� are laid but there is  no water.

The g-ood g-overnment of a city has  been the subject of many an interesting- article in newspaper and magazine. The importance of the subject  is the only incentive to discussion of  it. Generally speaking- the more that  is said about the matter, the more that  the electors persist in returning the  very worst men to municipal oflices.  The Canadian Mag-azine for March  contains an interesting article regarding municipal affairs in Montreal.  Years ago the business men of Montreal volunteered their services in the  city's interests. It was found, however, thatjtheman who had no ability to  properly fill the position, but who made  a house to house canvas and worked  upon the sympathies of the electors,  was generally successful at the election. Naturally the business men refrained from offering their services,  and the important work of adminis- .  tcring the affairs of a cit}- was undertaken by incompetent men. Montreal  has now an indebtedness of 827,000,000,  the interest on which absorbs nearly all  the revenue, leaving- but little for the  maintenance of  streets.    Last  winter  the council had no money to clean the  streets and they remained in an almost  ' impassable condition. The business  men are now clamoring for a royal  commission to investigate the.affairs  of the city. There is some consolation in the fact that cities thrive despite bad municipal g-overnment.  Greenwood has a chance.  SANITARY REGULATIONS. .  The promulg-ation of sanitary regulations is in itself a good thing- but unfortunately seldom deodorizes evil-  smelling- back yards. A heavy fine or  sixty days would go farther towards  bringing- the city, into a state of reasonable cleanliness than continuous  theorizing1 about sanitation. The baneful influence of the wide open town  policy has extended into quarters not  bargained for by its supporters, and  fever-breeding- cesspits and odoriferous back yards are undisturbed by  a scavanger or a disinfectant. There  are places in the city that are a disgrace to the owners and the authorities which permitted them to exist so  long. A close examination is not  necessary to prove this. Decaying  vegetable matter and other forms of  putrefaction are, appealing strorig-ly to  to the citizens to arouse themselves  and demand a more rigorous enforcement of ordinary sanitary laws.  There is no excuse for.the violation of  ordinary sanitary regulations. There  should be no sympathy for the individual who turns his back yard into a  fever-breeding factory. He should be  heavily punished. His offence is a  serious one. , ��        -   '  The ��� system of scavenging adppted'  by the new-council, is not an improvement. It lowers the cost of work imperfectly done, but does not tend to  improve sanitary conditions. What is  needed is a man who is paid to give  his whole time to the work of keeping  the city clean.  D. Campbell is away in Winnipeg  making arrangements with R. J. Mackenzie to take up the bond on the  Anchor and Enterprise claims in-Long-  Lake camp.

The Spokesman-Review Correspondent is Enthusiastic Regarding the Camp���The Rich  Waterloo ���The Development of Several  Other Properties.  Percy :T. Godenrath, the traveling  correspondent: of- the - Spokesman-Review, afteriSpendingvthe past ten days  in'Camp McKinney, returned to Greenwood on-the Sunday stage. He will  remain in; the ciiy .a. week gathering-  mining ;riews. t Speaking of his visit,  to; Gamp; McKinney, 'i Mr. Godenrath  said to a Times representative :    ..  '���Camp McKinney is booming-. The  stages are crowded arid many private  rigs are being brought,..into.- service to  carry ;,the visitors there; ..Deals-are  being made every day in the camp,  and development on many of the  claims that have been < lying idle for  many yearS'is now in progress.  '."' On the Annie L, claim'; owned by  the L/it'tie' Cariboo company, the shaft  is down 53 feet;- It will be continued  to' .the.j60-foot level, when, a crosscut  will be run 'to catch the.ledge, which,;  dipped out at a depth of 35 feet into the  .  -hill.- '  ���,���'������'���  "���The crosscut tunnel; on the Shannon-Dolphin claims is in over 90 feet. ���  I was up.to see the same just before  leaving and the face of the tunnel  shows stringers of quartz and the rock,  while broken up, is hard. This is an  indication, as a rule in the camp, of  the nearness of a ledge,'and they are  liable to run into it at any time. On  the surface the ledge measures four  feet. Besides pushing work on the  tunnel considerable stripping is being, ='���  done, tracing the ledge .west from the  shaft sunk on the east side line of the  company's ��� claim. , Tom/Donald is  superintending the work.  "On my way put.I met A. E. J.  Percival of Spokane going into camp.  He was the successful promoter of the  O'Shea company and the Cariboo No.  2. The, latter company owns the  Rosey claim; lying north' and adjoining the Amelia claim of the Cariboo  mine. He will start work on- this claim.  The O'Shea shaft is down 9 feet in a  well-mineralized ore body, and Superintendent Darraugh is now preparing  to enlarge the shaft before sinking,  making, it the main working shaft-  house . and blacksmith: shop. The  O'Shea is tucning out one- of the best  properties in camp.      -  "Hug-hie,-Cameron told me he intended developing the Teaser claim by  continuing the sinking of the shaft.  He is a strong believer in the theory  that the Cariboo ledge passes through  his ground.  " The Waterloo is turning out a  phenomenal property. The easterly  drift from the 65-foot level is in 75  feet, and the past four: days they have  been bringing up free gold bearing  bluish quartz ore that has attracted  considerable attention in camp. Considering that the concentrates from  this rock run $410 to the ton, I think  the stock at its quoted price presents  an attractive investment- to those  wanting to buy into a developed property, as other claims adjoining and  near by are selling their shares at from  15 to 20 cents.  "The Wiarton, lying between the  Cariboo and the Waterloo, is now being developed. Several crosscuts were  run to tap the Waterloo lead, which  was uncovered, and a shaft is now being sunk. As the same is only down  20 feet, the vein is considerably broken  up, but farther sinking will doubtless  find it in position. They are erecting  a shaft  house  and  preparing ground  for the arrival of their hoisting plant  that has been ordered. This clai..i  will doubtless turn out one of Llio  mines of the camp. It is under ilie  superintendence of C. E. Wing of  Spokane.  . . "Altogether this old-time camp is.  having a revival that will be permanent, and before this time next year I  expect to see two other mines running  mills, besides half a dozen machinery  plants in the camp."
