THREE   COMPANIES  ASKING   CITY  FOR  PRIVILEGES  Electric Light By-Law Laid 'Over���The Telephone Companies���The City Solicitor's Dual  Position���Straightening Silver Street���Applications for City Engineer.  A special meeting- of the city council  was held on Wednesday evening- to  discuss matters relating to the different companies applying for privileges  within the city. All the members of  the council, with the exception of Aldermen Sutherland and Cameron, were  ; present. When the meeting began Mr.  Kent'was present, representing the  Vernon and Nelson company, and Mr,  Whiteside, representing the Greenwood  Waterpower company. Alderman Galloway asked/Mr. Leamy, the city solicitor, if his clients had arrived, and  received an affirmative reply.  Mr. H.W. Kent, general superintendent of the Vernon and Nelson  Telephone company, wrote the council  expressing- regret that permission to  install a local system had not been  asked for when the long distance  'phone was placed in position. He  made formal application for such permission. The company's solicitors,  Messrs. McPhillips & Williams of Vancouver, were strongly of the opinion  that the company had authority under��  the 1896 act amending- their charter,  to erect poles and string wires without  a by-law. He had men on the ground  and material at hand and was anxious  to go to work immediately.  Alderman Naden  stated  that if the  council Had  the  power he would be in  ' fayor,of ' allowing-' the company to gx>  to worljvat once.-- They  were  the only  rcomparTy'that showed they meant business.    He   would like   to   secure   the  t opinion of the solicitor on   the matter.  Mr. Leamy, who-was armed with  several "legal; volumes, delivered a  lengthy argument to prove that the  Vernon and'Nelson company could  . not install their system within the city  limits without submitting- a by-law to  the ratepayers. He cited Point Elice  bridge cases and other municipal cases  to show that the rights of ratepayers  were not to be affected except by distinct provisions. .'��� '���...  Alderman Naden wished to know if  the company were prepared to put up  security for costs for any litigation  that might arise, would this protect  the City's interests. The city solicitor said that the company might refuse to indemnify on the grounds that  , the 'arrangement with the city was  illegal.  Mr. Kent stated that the company  would be prepared to indemnify the  city. He could not submit a by-law,  as such a course would be contrary to  the advice of the company's solicitors,  a d he was bound to follow their advice. He was.willing to go ahead and  take chances.  After further discussion the council  took no action, but it is understood  that Mi.' Kent has decided to go ahead  with the- install: tion of the local  system.  Mr. L. M. Rice, the engineer in  charge of construction on the C. & W.  railway, appeared  before   the    '  .<m^  OF EVERY DESCRIPTION.  !

'^nmmfmnww!^  He stated that he was there, not repre- .  senting any one, but he wished to point  out that if the channel for Boundary  were cut through the bank near Dead-  wood street, instead of swerving round  the bank, the street would be straigt-  ened and the appearance of the city  much improved thereby. He understood the Townsite company were willing to pay for cutting: the 40-foot  channel for the creek if the council  would undertake to grade the street on  both sides.  The members of the council were of  the opinion that the suggestions of  Mr. Rice should be adopted and that  the city would grade the street as soon  as funds are available. .,   .  Messrs. Pringie and Whiteside, solicitors for the Greenwood Waterpower  company, advised the council that  their directors were J. L. Pierce, capitalist, Greenwood; J. W. Hughes,  mine owner, Kaslo ; H. Cockshut,  manufacturer, Brantford, and F. J. ,  Finucane, banker, Greenwood.  Mayor Hardy reported that he could  not get'f till information over the 'phone  concerning prices for electric lights  at Nelson. The Greenwood Waterworks company submitted the following maximum prices : Residences, 16-  candle power, $1 per month ; business  houses, 16-candle power, SI per month ;  arc lights for street lighting, $150 per  year. ���.���'"������''  ���'������   '  ���'���  As the council was anxious to obtain  definite information reg-arding- prices  charged elsewhere, the by-law > was  laid over until Monday evening, and  the clerk instructed to procure the desired information. .,  The Columbia Telephone and Telegraph-company's right of way by-law  was read a first and second time. Mr."'  Stone, who was present, stated that,  the directors of the company were C.  O'Brien Reddin, W. I. Reddin, C. F.  Stone, '^Ang-us McNish, :and L. A.  Thorhbury. His company were financially able to carry on'the work. They  had direct .connection with the JSpo-  kane exchange, and with the Oreg-on,  Sunset and Inland; companies. They  were applying to the Dominion parliament for amendments to their charter,  to enable them to extend their system  to all parts of British Columbia and  the Northwest Territories. Mr. Stone  urged the council to give the by-law its'  third reading, as they were anxious to  begin work. He was informed that 24  hours must elapse before the by-law  could be read a third time. It would  could come up at the reg-ular meeting  on Monday.  Mr. Stone���I cannot be here on Monday.       .���',���'  The Mayor���Your solicitor has full .  power to act for'you ?  Mr. Stone���Oh, yes.  At this juncture Mr. Ross  handed a  note to Alderman Naden.  The Mayor���I have  to strongly object to Mr. Ross handing notes to ofii- ���  cials at the board.  ' Alderman Naden���Where is your  authority, Mr. Mayor, for such an ob- ;  jection ? Hasn't an alderman the right  to receive notes from whom he pleases ?  I wish to ask Mr. Stone another question : " Who is your solicitor ?"  Mr. Leamy, the city solicitor���I'll  answer that I acted as his solicitor,  drew up the by-law and handed it in  to the council.  Mr. Leamy got very indignant, used  language towards Mr. Ross that is  usually designated by a dash, and was  called to order by the mayor.  Alderman Galloway strongly objected to the city solicitor assuming  that the note handed Alderman Naden  had any relation to Mr. Leamy's position. The mayor choked off the discussion and the city solicitor retired,  threatening Mr. Ross with fearful  things if he dared mention anything  about him in his paper.  The clerk was instructed to call for  tenders for filling in Government street-  from the bank opposite Renciell's store.  The interest amounting to 51,500 on  last year's loan of 525,000 is due in.  Montreal March 31, and the clerk was  instructed to make arrangements for  its payment.  The clerk was instructed to call for  applications for the position of city  engineer, and the council decided to  take up the rails from Copper street,  charging the cost to the contractors  who  used   them   last.  Mr. Grant, auditor for P. Burns &  Co., visited the different branches in  the district (hiring the week. agaaaia��aga^^igSi'a^^T.<g;  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  ���     /     H.    HALLETT.

Last year the  council of the board held a hole in the  corner meeting and passed a resolution against the charter and against  the wishes of many members. Those  who were most enthusiastic in supporting the charter .were those who  knew most about the local situation.  Mr. McCandless, who spent several  days in the district last summer, was  strong in his advocacy of granting  railway competition to Boundary  Creek. Senator Tempelman and  others who believe in the general principle of denying no section railway  competition, were also stalwart champions of the. district. It appears that  the feeling in all parts, of the. Dominion has changed, and the injustice  done Boundary Creek last year will be  wiped out at this session of the Dominion parliament. ...'..'

Doolittle, of  Toronto, Ont., who. is en route to  Southern California, where he holds  large interests in some gold mines.  Doolittle enjoys a large, practice in  Ontario's capital city and, in addition  to that, his inventive genius has placed  him in-that comfortable position where  he can invest largely in mining properties, as he is the inventor of the self-  acting hub bicycle brake, that is now  universally used in the wheel manufacture. In conversation with a Miner  reporter last evening Dr. Doolittle said  that British Columbia could expect lo  see a large amount of Ontario capital  invested here in the near future. A  few years ago Toronto was the stamping ground for almost every wild-cat  that was turned loose on the credulous  public. Buying of cheap stock became epidemic and shares in any company floated iwere eagerly bought up.  Of course, in almost every case all the  money invested was lost and this  naturally gave a set-back to the capital that would otherwise have steadily  come this way. Reaction set in and  nearly all investment ceased. Now,  however, another mining boom is on  in Toronto, but it is a healthy one.  People have confidence in the country,  past "mistakes, to guide them into the  right path and only boiyt fide propositions have any show on the Toronto  Mining Exchange. The people who  formerly bought five cent shares, expecting them to go to a dollar, now  buy dollar shares to hold them for  dividends. Confidence has been restored in the Ontario investors by the  investments here by such men as  Gooderham, Blackstock and Cox and  the successful" handling-.jof the War  Eagle has  done  more  than   anything  else to turn Toronto money-this way.  The Le Roi and Cariboo-McKinney  have, also attracted attention and made  monied people regard mining as a  business and not as'a speculation. The  recent successful flotation.of the Payne,  will do a great deal for the Slocan  country. People down cast regard it  as one of the best possible investments, as may be judged by the fact  that the stock was eagerly bought up\  at a price away above��par. As the doings of this valuable mine will now  come prominently , before the public,  the Slocan "country will 'receive adver-'"  tisiug-.that-.its wealth entitles it to, but  which it has lacked" in the past'.���Nel-'  son.

A. McQueen is in the city on business.  C. J. McArthur's charcoal kiln exploded last week. The loss is about  $400. :  W.'Gibson has returned after spending- the winter at his old home in  Ottawa.  J. L/. Pierce and Clive Pring-le are  both confined to their homes throug-h  illness.  Louis Blue, of the Boundary Creek  ���Milling- and Lumber Company, is over  from Rossland.  John L. White has moved the Greenwood Pharmacy to the corner of Copper  and Deadwood streets.'  The Greenwood City Mercantile Company are preparing- to put a stone  foundation underneath their building.  Messrs. McKenzie & Lindsay are  building an hotel near the junction of  the West Fork and Kettle river, another point which in the opinion of experts is the proper place for a large  city.  The city council has decided that it  is inadvisable to attempt to make the  'dam watertight at present. Tenders  are being- called for the construction  of a tank of a capacity of at least 200,-  000 gallons. This tank is to be placed  below the dam.  Mrs. P. L. Chaplin, whose husband  is boookeeper for a firm doing- business at the mouth of Curlew creek, accidentally shot herself at her home  Wednesday. She was handling a  Winchester, which was accidentally  discharged, the bullet entering ;her  foot. Dr. Jakes went clown to Curlew Thursday morning-, to attend the  sufferer.  Dr. R. W. Jakes has made a very  reasonable offer to the city respecting  the opening of the hospital. He offers  to open the hospital and take city  patients at the rate of S2 per day if the  city will grade street leading' to the  hospital, furnish the hospital with free  water and give a yearly bonus of S500.  At the rate the city has been paying  for indigent sick, nursed in hotels, the  acceptance of Dr. Jake's offer would  mean the savingof considerable money.  The Burleigh Drill Contracting and  Development Company has been organized by residents of Greenwood. The .  officers are G. Mark Corns, president;  C. Scott Galloway, vice-president; E.  C. Brown, secretary ; and J. H. Shields,  treasurer. The Company will be prepared to take contracts of any description. Mr. Corns has now a contract on  the Combination mine, and has had a '  long- experience in mining work. The  other officers are well-known residents  of the city.  Mr. D. F. Mcintosh, the president  and   manager of the Winnipeg- Gold-  mining Company, was in the city this  week. > He brought with him samples  of ore from the drift on the new ore  chute recestly discovered on the 300-ft  level. It will be remembered that a  few weeks ago a blind lead was encountered at the 300-ft level. Drifting-  was continued on this ledge. At 60 feet  the character of the ore changed considerably; The new ore���samples of  which were left at the Bank of Commerce���is much richer than that first  taken from the ledge. The gold and  copper values are mutually increased.  Mr. Mcintosh stated that the new compressor plant recently purchased from  F. R. Mendenhall will not be hauled to  the mine until the roads improve.  Corbin Charter. The dispatch to the  Rossland Miner reg-arding the new C.  P. R. town near Greenwood was read;  and delegates were appointed to come  to Greenwood to secure the co-operation  of the paople here iii"sending the delegate to Ottawa. The Grand Forks  delegation will find a unanimity of  feeling in favor of the Corbin Charter  because the people believe in railway  competition, but no indignation on account of the opposition C. P. R. town,  because such a town exists only in the  fertile imagination of the Rossland  Miner's  correspondent.  A   FAKE   SPECIAL.  The  Rossland  "Winer"  Creates a Rival for  Green-wood.  Sunday's Rossland Miner, contains  what purports to be a special from  Greenwood, to the effect that there is  much indig-nation here because the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company  has decided to start a new town two  miles above Greenwood. The Miner is  evidently being used by some people  who have a purpose to serve. The C.  P. R. has shown no inclination to start  a town near Greenwood. The Company  is spending- a. large amount of money  in the work of improving the city, and  all its arrangements so far have been  towards making Greenwood property  valuable. In this connection it will be  interesting-to, note that a largely attended meeting of the Grand Forks  Board of Trade was held a few nights  ago. It was decided to send a delegate  to Ottawa to urge the granting  of  the  And adjoining- camps, who run  temporarily out of stock and  need supplies at a day's notice,  can secure the same at strictly  competitive rates from the B.
