Copper Street, Greenwood,  A MIDNIGHT SESSION  A LENGTHY   COUNCIL MEETING  The Greenwood Waterworks Company's Rljht  of, Way Br-Law Undergoes Mutilation-  Some Telephone Tumbles���The Civic Ad'-,  vertlslne-Other Matters Discussed.  Midnight saw the members of the  city council sitting- in their places at  the regular meeting, wrestling with a  by-law granting certain privileges to  the Greenwood City Waterworks company. Amendment after amendment  was offered. Some were rejected and  some were accepted, but when the committee rose the by-law was incomplete,  and a special meeting will be held this  evening to further consider the matter.  It might save several'amendments and  considerable discussion if the council  were told that Parts III, IV and V of  the Water Clauses Consolidation,act,  1897, apply to this company. The  municipality may, by giving 12 months'*  notice, acquire the system under section 47. Under section 112 the cotn-  : pariy is authorized to carry freight and  passengers over tramways, and to  make'rates arid charges .for-.the'carriage and transportation thereof, and  the tramways have the right of use  against all other vehicles. Many of  the amendments suggested at Monday  night's- meeting dealt with matters  that are regulated by the Water  Clauses act, and were consequently  not within the powers of the council.  Nor was the above the only trouble  .which the council had. Mr. Herbert  Kent, the general superintendent of  the Vernon and Nelson ��� Telephone  company, asked that the city engineer be instructed to direct his company where to erect poles, as he "was  anxious to install a. local .system., immediately. He also took up the contentions of the Columbia Telephone  company as a side issue, and produced  letters from C.,B. Hopkins, the superintendent of the Inland company, to  prove that the latter company, knew  nothing of the Columbia company,  and did not intend to co-operate with  any other than the Nelson and Vernon.  Messrs. Stone and Donald telephoned  the mayor that they will be in Greenwood on Wednesday. A special meeting will be held Wednesday evening  and the telephone troubles will be fur- .  ther discussed.  City advertising was finally considered at the meeting. The Greenwood Miner repeated its price ot 5  cents first insertion and 2 cents each  subsequent insertion. Mr. W. J. Har-  ber, managing director of the Boundary Creek Printing and Publishing  company, opened fire .on the council  and poured hot shot into the working  majority as follows :  Greenwood, B. C, 20th March, 1899.  To Creen>vood City Council:  Sirs.���I hereunder tender, by request  of City Clerk Taylor, for the civic advertising-for the balance of the current year:  4 2-5 cents per line solid   nonpareil for lirst iu-  ,. sertion.  12-5 cents  per line,  solid   nonpareil,  for each  subsequent insertion.  32-5ceuts  per line, leaded   nonpareil, for first  insertion. ���  2-5 cents   per line, leaded   nonpareil, for each  subsequent insertion.  I  make  this  "cut  rate,"   not   for  a  <&��>.  OF EVERY  DESCRIPTION.  Always on hand, a full line of  Ledgers, Journals, Cash Books,  Record Books, Memos, Diaries,  Hotel Registers, etc,  ��  $  0  ; SMITH   &   McRAE,  ]    Books, Stationeiy, Wallpaper, Notions  i and Fancy Goods,  GREENWOOD.     B.C.  moment expecting to be awarded the  contract, but solely to test the bona  fides of the mayor's statement "that  he was going to get the city printing  (sic) done as cheaply as he possibly  could. V I have read and re-read the  oath of office sworn to by each member of the council, and I am loth to  believe the current report re "delivery  of election goods';" the repeated refusal to award the contract to our firm  (the lowest tenderer), I must in charity  attribute to complete ignorance of the  method of measuring advertising  space. This is excusable. To show  that a tender of 5 cents per line is not  necessarily lower than a tender of 8  cents per line, I submit a duplicate advertisement from two papers of last  week :  FROM  BOUNDARY CREEK TIMES.  CORPORATION OF THE CITY OF GREENWOOD  COURT   OF   REVISION.  TvTOTICE is hereby (riven that the Court of  XiL Revision for the purpose of hearing'all  complaints against the assessment for the vear  1899, as made by the Assessor of the citv of  Greenwood, will be held at the Court House,  Greenwood, on  THURSDAY. 27th APRIL. 1899.

Corporation of the City of Greenwood.  COURT OF REVISION  XJOTICE IS HEREBY, GIVEN that the  , , Court of Revision for: the purpose cof  hearinjr all complaints against the assessment  for the year 1899 as made by; the assessor of the  City of, Greenwood, B. C, will be held at the  Court House, Greenwood, on Thursday, the  27tii day of April, A.D, 1899, at 10 o'clock, a.m.  G. B. TAYLOR, C. M. G.  City Clerk's Office, Greenwood, March 15th, 1899.  7-10  This advertisement measures 23 lines  One insertion at 5 cents    *1 IS  Nine subsequent insertions at 2 cents 4 14  Total   <5 29  3 38  Difference.....  i .      $1 91  Thus the Boundary Creek 'Times  would save the city SI.91 on this small  advertisement alone. The secret lies  in the fact that one notice is set up in  solid nonpareil; the Miner notice, on  the contrary, is leaded and padded out  to make as much space as possible.  It will be noticed that ��� the Miner  advertisement is marked for 10 insertions, notwithstanding the fact that,  new tenders are xalled for. And this  merely confirms my belief that certain of your members either cannot or  dare not act quite as impartially in  the city's interest as they are under  oath to do.  I would add that the foregoing tender  will be. signed by us, if so awarded,  although made contrary to the wish of  Mr. Ross, our editor. Perhaps per:  sonal animosity will therefor cut no  figure this time.  W.  J.  Harber,  Manager B. C. P. & P. Co.  Alderman Galloway   moved   and Alderman Naden seconded  that the tender of   the   Boundary  Creek   Printing  and   Publishing   company  being   the  lower, be accepted.    This  was carried ,  without  discussion, and   the  only  opposition was in the shape of a viscious  "no" from Alderman Sutherland.  Several accounts were referred to  the finance committee. The council  then went into committee to consider  the by-law of the Greenwood' Waterworks company and stayed in committee until after midnight. They reduced the time of franchise to 10 years,  and Mr. Kent- placed the telephone  line at the disposal of the council to  find out prices charged for electric  light in Rossland and Nelson. The  council accepted the offer and the  clerk probably did some cheap telephoning, unless Spokane was using  the line.  W. S.   Fletcher   visited   his  Canyon  Creek properties this week.  J. W. Stewart, John W. Stevens, and  Dr. A. C. Dalton were visitors to the  city on Saturday. Mr. Stevens is very  much amused at the numerous reports  that appeared in the Spokane papers  regarding his connection with the supposed railway Jim Hill is going to  build to Republic. He admitted, however, that a survey party is on the field  along the Sun Poil, but could not say  in whose interests the party is,working.  Mr. Stevens corroborates the statement  already made to the effect that the  railway to Greenwood will be computet!  in June or Jul v. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  ViCTOBlA' IN    LINE.  The Victoria board of trade is determined to wipe out last year's error,  as the following extracts taken from  the Times' report of a recent meeting  will show :  When the subject of the Corbin railway proposition in the Kettle River  valley came up, Mr. McCandless said  he was strongly in favor of the charter  being granted. He had been through  the country and could see that if the  road were not built the result would be  a monopoly for the C. P. R., and that;  he could inform the council, would be  a bad thing for Victoria. He would  not be so strongly in favor of the Corbin .scheme if there was the remotest  possibility of the V., V. and E. railway  ( being proceeded with, but he was satisfied from what he had seen that the  V., V. and E.'���would, not be built for  five or ten years, aad possiblj' not at  all. ' He, believed every Victorian,  every one who is interested more in  Virtoria .than elsewhere, should support any road that would go into the  Boundary country in opposition to the  C. P. R. If it were not that Victoria  enjoyed the opportunity of using the  American roads he would like to know  what trade, the'merchants'here'would  have. With the Corbin ro.^d the merchants here would be in a position to  compete ''with Vancouver and the'east-  ern provinces, and would be able to  travel into the Boundary country  quicker than is possible via Vancouver.  ��� If the.charter be-not granted to Corbin  the result wili-be that .the C. P. R. will  control everything west of the Columbia. , He knew there was a strong  feeling.regarding the road coming in  from the other side, but he didn't think  it had done much harm at Winnipeg,  nor in the Koptenays generally. .He  did not believe in tlie C. P..R. being  able to own British Columbia.  Mr. Ker���What advantages of cheapness do you now have with the American roads ?  Mr. McCandless retorted that there  might not be any, but no 6ne knew  better than Mr. Ker what the merchants of Victoria would have to pay  if the American 'roads were net available.  Messrs. Bone and Erskine supported  Mr. McCandless on that point, and  Senator Templeman said the council  should certainly express ah opinion on  the matter of the Corbin charter. L,ast  year when the representatives were at  Ottawa and the matter came up, one  of the biggest fights on record took  place in the railway committee on the  subject, and the counciL met and sent  a strong resolution opposing granting  the charter. Representatives of ��� the  various interests were there and the  outcome was that the C. P. R. won,  although the bill had passed the  second reading in the house. It appeared to him almost important thing  that, the representatives should have  instructions upon the matter. Personally he could inform the council that  he was going- to support the granting  of the charter. .  Mr. Ker���Give us one reason..  Mr. Templeman replied that on the  broad general principle that railway  competition is. a good thing for any  country, new or old. He did not believe in giving up any large area to  any company, it being contrary to the  best interests of the country. He did  not propose at: this time, however, to  discuss the reasons ; he was strongly  in,favor of the charter being granted,  and wan ted. to; know if the council was  or was not of the same mind as it was  last year. Last year the legislature  and the council both passed r.esolur  tions against the charter being given,  and he believed it was a most suicidal  thing for .them to do so. Were they of  the same mind now ? He could say  that for himself, he would support any  railway being granted a charter that  did not ask a bonus, on the same broad  principle, It seemed a curious thing  that in this particular corner of the  Dominion we should be opposed to  having railways come in, while at the  other end of the Dominion they wanted  all the roads they could get. He believed public opinion was overwhelmingly in favor of the charter being  granted, and in the face of that, for a  body of business men to get together-  and pass a resolution condemning the  proposition placed the representatives  of tlie province at Ottawa in a very  awkward position. He would like, to  feel that his action in supporting the  scheme was endorsed by the council,  although he frankly admitted that  even if it were not he would not vote  against his own judgment upon the  matter.  The chairman expressed himself in  favor of the charter being granted,'  believing it would be better for Victoria to have as much railroad connection as possible. *  A motion for a special meeting to  discuss tlie niatter was carried unanimous] v.

Mr. Hoffman, the well known Spokane mining- man, reached Greenwood  on Monday. He had a decided limp,  which he explains by relating- the  story of an .exciting- stage ride between Bossburg and Cascade. The  stage had eight passengers on board ;  all of .whom-' decided . that the road;  from Bossburg to Hall's ferry was  rough enough, but the excitement began, at the long hill this side. The  driver attempted to put on the brake  but it would not work. The wheelers  succeeded in kicking in the dashboard  and the driver jumped. He lost control of the lines and the wild race dpwti  the hill:.began. Smith Curtis of Rossland was on -board and, with ��� lawyerlike astuteness'; he slid off when the  ���trouble began. Herbert Bolster of  Spokane, having trained his staying-  powers in the Winnipeg boom, advised  Mr. Hogman to remain in the stage.  Passengers jumped: off at intervals  and were more or less injured. The  wheels ran into a .rut and Mr. Hoffman wasforced to disregard Mr. Bolster's advice. He was pitched headforemost onto the road. One poor fellow nariiefd Gill' fell under the wheels  and had a bone in: his leg fractured.  Near the foot of .the hill one of the '  horses fell and-the wild ride came to  an end. Mr. Bolster was the only occupant of the stage at the. finish.  Luckily the stage arid horses were in :  sufficiently' good condition to bring the  passengers to Cascade.

To THE Editor : As many of.-the merchants in Greenwood and surrounding  districts are greatly interested in the  question of freighting goods, would  you kindly allows me space to explain  the situation as ; it stands at present.-  There have-! undoubtedly, been serious  delays to goods being freighted in from  both Bossburg and Penticton. As it is  well known'vthe freighting rate, from  Penticton has always been less, than  from Bossburg and it has been our  effort to prevent the Penticton rates  from being advanced, but the condition of the roads and the advanced cost  of feed' has placed freighters on the  road in a position where they can't make  expenses at the rates they have been  charging. They have' therefore notified us unless they, can advance their  rates slightly they cannot obtain additional teams. As I believe it is of  more importance to the Greenwood  merchants to have their freight  handled, promptly than the small sav- ���  ing in the freight rate, 1 have consented  to their advancing their rate from  Pentiction to S1.75. They will not be  at any time higher thati the prevailing  rate from Bossburg,'arid in return they  have agreed to increase their outfits'  so that the freight will not be delayed.  Many of the merchants in your  vicinity are anxious to ascertain when  we will be in a position to handle  freight by our new line to some point  more convenient to Greenwood than  Penticton or Bossburg. .While our road  is still in the Hands of the contractors  I would not .be able to say anything  definite in regard, to this, but I may  say that;if at some early date we find  the track laying progressing well, and  there are no. obstacles in the way of  handling goods shipped by our line  from eastern points, into some more  convenient point .where they can be  hauled more cheaply than front Penticton, we will quite willingly divert  shipments then in transit and. send  them in that way, but as. this is a  niatter Which is so conditional on circumstances that cannot   be  forseen, it  will be impossible for'me to speak more  definitely.  Our desire, however, is to do everything we possibly can to enable merchants in your district to get in their  supplies quickly and at the lowest possible cost. F.W.Peters,  ;,.'.'.

The application of  the   Greenwood  Waterpower company for the privilege  to erect poles and string'  wires for the  purpose   of  furnishing-   electric    light  and  power to  the citizens  of Greenwood will likely  be opposed  by  those  who believe  that  all  undertaking's of  this description  should   be  owned and  controlled by the city.    The ideal city  owns   its    own     waterworks,   electric  lights,   tramways  and  all   similar enterprises from which a steadji&revenue  may be derived.    The   peculiar  conditions  which   surround   and   control  a  mining- town make  it  often   impracticable   and   sometimes    impossible    to  secure the ideal.    It is safe to say that  if Greenwood is  to  maintain her place  in   the   race   for   supremacy,   electric    j  light   is   a   necessity.     Are   the  tax-    j  payers prepared to shoulder the neces-    i  sary additional direct taxation in order    i  to   secure   sufficient   money   for   the    j  purchase   of power  and   constructing-    !  the necessary plant ?    If so, would the    I  lighting of the cit3r and the furnishing  of power to those, who desire it  within  the city limits' be   a   profitable  investment?    In order to be able  to answer  the above questions  satisfactorily it is  necessary   to   refer   to    the   financial  standing- of   the   city.    The   assessed  property totals in  round  figures 5500,-  000.   The  amount  that can be raised  by the maximum ordinary rate will be  more than needed for  the  carrying-on  of municipal  g-overnment  under  present arrangements. <   The   interest and  ���  sinking-fund on the loans  of last year  must be paid.    To  meet  this a special  rate   of  at  least five   mills   must   be  levied.    Improvements are  to  be  undertaken  this  year.    The waterworks,  , the purchase of land  for  a  cemetery,  the purchase of land for a fire hall and  city hall and the erection of necessary  buildings,   the   payment   of   fire   apparatus,   the grading- of streets,   the  construction   of   sidewalks,   and    the  many other  thing's   contemplated   by  the council will  aggregate a large expenditure,    probably    not    less   than  350,000.     To meet   the   interest   and  . sinking fund on  this  amount, another  levy   of   ten   mills    must    be    made.  Fifteen   mills   for  ordinary   revenue,  five mills for last  year's loan and ten  mills for  the  contemplated  loans this  year,   totals   30   mills.     Thirty  mills  means S30   on   property   assessed  for  51,000, which is in  itself  rather a high  rate of taxation.    If the  the' construction of a city electric  light  plant  and  system is  to   be  undertaken;  another  large sum  must be  borrowed and the '  cost of interest and sinking fund added  to the foregoing-.    \  : The theory: of municipal ownership  and  control of franchises  is correct,  but conditions must be met.    We have  attempted to roughly outline the financial position of the city.    It is for the  taxpayers  to decide   the  course  most  advantageous  to  themselves  and  the  city. Shonld they decide that the more  preferable way is to allow a  company  to  furnish  light   and   power,  the  interest's   of   the -' residents   should    be  properly safeguarded.    The conditions  under which the  franchise  is granted  should be  definite.    Reasonable compensation   and   similar   terms  which  sound  well  but  mean   nothing should  be eliminated from the agreement.  ,  A POOR MAIL, SERVICE.  The residents of Kootenay and  Boundary Creek reasonably expected  that when Mr.'Dorman was appointed  postoffice inspector for the mainland,  irregularities in the mail service Would  be promptly remedied. The service  between - Boundary Creek and Rossland for three months has been of the  worst description* Four, five and six  days are required to convey letters between Greenwood and Rossland, when  a traveler can make the distance by  stage and train in a day and a half.  The worst feature of the matter is that  the entire mail for a day is sometimes  missing and never turns up. There is  something.seriously wrong and the department should give the matter is  serious attention at once.  The Dominion parliament was  opened on Thursday last. The most  important legislation foreshadowed is  a measure for the better arrangement  of. the electoral districts throughout  .the Dominion. As far as this province  is concerned, it is not probable that  the representation will be increased,  but one member taken from Victoria  and given to the, Kootenays. At the  present time Victoria has two members, with a population not greater  than that of Burrard district, which  has only one member.  IT may interest our readers to learn  that the annual report of the Bank of  British North America for 1898 is a  very satisfactory one. The usual  dividend of 5 per cent, was declared,  and S73.000 (,��15,000) was added to the  reserve fund, which now amounts to  51,460,000 (,��300).

A good property with-careful m'an-  " agement is bound to come to the front.  Inferior mining 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 tlie 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 and financial centers.  The Golden Crown mine in Wellington camp may be cited  as proving the  truth of the assertion   contained in the  above, paragraph.     Early   iii   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 good figure, because the develop-,  merit work  has demonstrated that the  Golden Crowti will soon be a dividend-  ,paying mine.^ .,..';.,;   J.";-..;,'*. .."'.'X'.'^.... ���:~'.:i[-\  Under^"such   "encouraging'.' circum- ,���  stances,   the   annual  meeting  of  the  Brandon and Golden Crown  company,  held at Greenwood oh Thursday, was  of the most  satisfactory  nature to the  shareholders.1   Hon.  T.  Mayne Daly,  the president, Andrew Kelly, the vice-  president,   W.  A,  Macdonald,  Q.  C.,  one of the directors, and  W: 'I,. .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;  \V.  J.  Porter,  Greenwood;  W.  A.   Macdon aid, Q.C.,  Nelson ;G.  H. Collins, Greenwood ; Hon; "Senator  Kirchoffer,   Brandon ;���-J.  A.;  Russell,  Greenwood ;  James  Currie, Montreal,  and  W. A. Fuller, .Spokane.'-���: The ;;di-:  rectors appointed Hon. T. Mayne Daly,'  president';   W.: J.   Porter,   vice-president ; W. L. Orde, secretarj'-treasurer,  and G. H. Collins, managing  director.  The  financial  statement,   which   was  laid   before1 the meeting, was of the  most satisfactory nature,"showing sufficient funds on hand  to  carry   on de- '  velopment 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 liiine,  but in a measure'outlines bright future  prospects for other mining properties  in the district. The shareholders  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.  ���Mr. Collins begins his report by  stating that since the commencement  of operations in April, 1997, to March  1, 1899, the sum of $24,500 was received  from the treasury. He then gives a-detailed statement of how this money  was expenned.    He says :  Office of  the  Managing  Director of  Brandon   and   Golden   Crown   Mining  Company, Ltd.  To Tine Hon.

Since the  commencement  of  work  in  April, 1897, 775 feet  of work   has been  done, consisting of  a   crosscut tunnel,  main   working   shaft,   crosscuts    and  drifts at various levels, an upraise and  a winze.  The crosscut  tunnel, 4  by   6}4 feet,  driven  with   the   idea  of cr'osscutting  and prospecting a dyke and  tapping a  lead   on  which  considerable development work was done  by  the  original'  owner, was run a distance of 322 feet  in   a  diorite  formation.    In  doing so  seven leads  were crosscut, averaging  . in width from 18 inches  to, 7 feet between walls.    The value of the ore in  these veins is from $18 to $22 in  gold  and   copper per  ton.    The   course of  these leads   is north-west and south-,  east, and  dip to  the south, and have  no connectiou with the main bodies on  the  property, though  a welcome addition to its present wealth.    The cost  per foot for  driving this   tunnel   was  $17.47, which  includes  labor,   powder,  fuse, candles, ore car and tramway.  The   main   workings   consist   of   a  double-compartment  shaft, 4 by 8 feet  in the clear, timbered  throughout, and  sunk' vertically to a  depth of  154 feet.  At the 50-foot level the  main lead was  encountered.    Its width  at  this point  being 5 feet  between   walls.    At.this  level a 9-foot  crosscut was   run, also a  9-foot clrift oh the ore.    .....  . At the jlOO-foot level another crosscut was run 18 feet, when a chute of  ore from 4.to' 6 feet wide", was ^.encountered. A drift was then driven on this  ore body for a distance of 66 feet. At  the 150-foot level a 65 crosscut was run  , and at 32 feet a drift 56 feet on the  vein. At a distance of 42 feet along  this drift a diagonal upraise was made,  60 feet in length, to the 100-foot level.  This upraise disclosed a magnificent  body of tire between the two levels.  At the present time a winze is being  sunk on the vein in the drift at the  150-foot level, with a view to determining its exact location. On the 1st of  March a depth of 17 feet had been  reached.

The^ cost per foot of the various  : workings was as follows: '  Shaft    15+    feet,    including    timbering  throughout... :...:...:.::..'...:...::........:::.. sin 51  Crosscuts and  drifts, 221  feet  .   14 51  Upraise, 60 feet..:....���...".: ::......:.........   15 67  Wiuzej 17 feet.:.���;:.^....:;.........::..:.....  -23 40  This cost includes all labor, powder, j  fuse, candles, etc. The formation in j  the shaft shows this vein to; have a j  diorite hanging wall, the footwall be- !  ing an altered gabbro. j  The general character of the ore i  may be described as pyrrhotite and j  copper pyrites in a silicious gangue. j  The average values obtained from j  careful sampling are : > ���'    i  Gold���S104.76, $32.80, $16, $t8, $15.20, j  $13.20, . $25.20, ��14.60, $21.75, $14.25, j  $22.34, $18.88, $70, $17.60, $20, $24.80, j  $28.43.

Last  spring,   in   May, work"  was   ' temporarily      suspended     until  August, on   account  of the  heavy in- '  flow  of  water  in   the  shaft.    Owing,  however, to recent development which  will render it  feasible  to  drain off all  water into a sump, it will not be necessary   to  suspend   work for  the  same  reason in future.  The hoisting and pumping plant  which was installed in February, 1898,  was supplied by thelngersoll-Sergeant  company, and has proved very satisfactory. It consists of a 50-horsepower  boilor, a 30-horsepower Standard Lid-  gerwood hoisting engine, and a 140-  gallon Knowles vertical sinking pump,  together with full complement of accessories, including a 400-foot J^-inch  wire rope, buckets, piping, etc.  Mr. Collins then describes the buildings and proceeds to outline plans for  future' development: The general  policy outlined for work during the  coming year is that of continuing the  present working shaft another 150 feet,  giving a depth of 300 feet, and to establish levels at 250 and 300 feet, or where  deemed advisable. It, is then the-intention to crosscut not only the main  lead, but also the other leads known to  exist on the property, some of which  are clearly and evidently the continuation of those now opened up on the  adjoining property, the Winnipeg. It  is reasonable to expect that by cross-  cutting at the 300-foot level at least  several veins will be opened up, all of  which carry similar ore, thus creating  ample ground for stoping.  The construction at the present time  (which  is  hearing-  completion) of the  Columbia   arid  Western   railway from  Robson to Midway, has already greatly  enhanced   the   value   of    all    mining  property in   the  Boundary   Creek   district, the disadvantag-es as to shipping  and transportation   facilities, and consequently   treatment,   which    for   so  man}' years   have  rendered  active de-  . velopment word in this  section almost  an   impossibilitj', are, now  practically  a thing of the  past, and  the  time has  at   last   arrived   when   any   mine  of  ���-merit in this locality,,will soon be able  to market its ore.    In  this  respect the  Golden Crown is  peculiarly   well situated, as  the  survey of the Columbia  and Western railway (C. P. R.) branch  line, which is to  tap   Summit,   Greenwood, Wellington and  Central camps,  passes   within  100 feet of the   shaft  house.    Work on this  branch line will  begin soon, and it,can be  safely calculated that   by   the   time   the   Golden  Crown has sufficient ore blocked out to  be able to ship steadily,   the ' shipping,,  facilities from the dump to the smelter  will be available. ���  As regards treatment, it is understood that the C. P.'R. will furnish a  low- rate for Boundary ores, both at  the Trail Smelter and at the large reduction works which the company has  decided to erect at Cascade City. It is  also highly probable that to the west  of the camp, in the neighborhood of  Midway, ofurther smelting facilities  will exist in the near future, and as  railway- competition from the south  can be safely relied on to reach the  district before long, both low treat-:  inent and low shipping facilities are  practically assured. ���.'������������  Respectfully submitted,  ' G.

H. G. Wilson, of Wilson Bros., wholesale grocers, Victoria, is making a business,trip through the district.  The charge of assault preferred by  W. G. Bradshaw against W. J. Porter,  which had beenpeudiiig for some time,  was withdrawn b3' Ihe prosecution on  Tuesday.'  C. JB. Shaw, C. E., has resigned as  city engineer. . He found that his outside work so encroached upon his time  that it was impossible for him to give  city work that attention it deserved.  C. E. Race, formerly editor of the  Rossland Miner, but now a member of  the firm of Kennedy, Race, & Cromyn,  was in the city last week. He visited  Camp . M'Kiiiney in company with Mr.  Warren, and purchased the Kamloops,  a claim adjoining the Wiarton. The  Kamloops is being stocked in Rossland.  Mr. Herbert Bolster, of Spokane, is  - examining properties in the district.  Mr. Bolster is the manager of the Spokane Fruit Fair, and he is keeping an  eye open for a big mining exhibit this  year. Mr. Bolster states that the mining exhibit is going to be made a special feature of the Fruit Fair. He intends visiting Camp M'Kinney and  Republic   before  returning   home.  A portion of the Hall ranch, recently  acquired by the city, has alreadj* been  set aside for cemetery purposes. A  man named Johnson, working for Patrick Welch, had his skull fractured by -  a blast last week. He was taken to  the railroad hospital on Saturday, and  died on Sunday. His remains were  buried on the Hall ranch the same day.  As soon as the snow is gone, a portion  of the ground will be surveyed into  regular cemetery plots.  W. D. McPherson, an Eastern architect, who planned the Yale Hotel in  Grand Forks, was in the city this week.  He has furnished the pfans for Rendell  & Co's new block. The stone work for  this building is well under way. The  foundations are being laid for J. W.  Powell's three-storey hotel. Posty &  Villandree's hotel is being erected, and  D. Manchester's is nearing completion.  Smith & McRae's building is also nearing completion. Hunter-Kendrick Company's big store will be ready for occupancy in a few weeks. Thos. Walsh's  and H. B. Madden's hotels will be  opentd about April  1.  ! Henry   Brelich, M. E., has" returned  from Nelson. ������������������  Lots on the Fisher addition have  been changing hands. Wm. Y. Williams, the general superintendent of the  Knob Hill, and Old Ironsides Companies purchased three for $2,500. He intends erecting a large building at an  early date. G. H. Collins, manager of  the Golden Crown, also purchased lots  on this addition: Chas. Kinney bought  several lots, and will build residences  thereon. A. Burke, contractor, also  purchased,   and  will  build.  MINING   NOTES  Ross Thompson and J. B. Hastings,  superintendent of the War Eagle,  visited the Oro Denoro last week.  Mr. M. McMillan, of McMillan Bros.,  who are interested in the Snowshoe  deal, came over from Rossland on Sunday. He stated that work would be  started on the property shortly.  The Republic mine has been sold to  Eastern Canadian capitalists. A new  company has been organized in Spokane with the eastern men in control.  The price paid is in the neighborhood  of $2,000,000.-  L. H. Hoffman of Spokane has pur-  ' chased, through W. B. Paton & Co. of  Greenwood, the Salisbury and Beacons-  field claims in Camp McKinney. These  claims are near the Sailor group. They  will be floated in Spokane.  E. A. Bielenberg has secured the  Golden Rod claim in White's camp.  He went over to Columbia last week  and bonded the property from E.  Spraggett. The consideration is 510,000  The first payment of $1,000 is to be  made June 1st, and the balance in 4, 6.  8, 10 and 12 months. The Golden Rod  was one of Farrell & Midgeon's properties. It is located on the supposed  boundary between the Kettle river and  Grand Forks mining divisions. W. T.  Smith, who represented Farrell &  Midgeon, went to Midway to record assessment work, which was nearly due.  He was informed the claim was in the  Grand Forks division and before he  could record there the claim was relocated. The matter came up in the  courts but was afterwards amicably  settled. Considerable work was done  on the property, which has a good  showing.  Messrs. Voight and Morgan of Rossland returned on Friday evening from  the Similkameen country. Mr. Voight  is a well known mining engineer who  has heavy interests on Copper mountain. He reports that considerable development work is being carried on  and that all the properties are showing  up well. Both Mr. Morgan and Mr.  Voight are enthusiastic about the copper possibilities of the Similkameen  district. The district is also becoming-  known in mining- centers and some attention is being- given to it. Last  week Mr. Clive Pringle of Greenwood  bonded the Helen H. Gardner, Copper  Farmer Copper Farm, Vancouver and  Humboldt claims from C. A. Sanders  of Grand Prairie, and J. Miller and  Geo. Wolf. It is stated that the price  is $120,000, and 5 per cent, was paid in  cash. Mr. Voight and others who  visited the properties, which are located on Copper mountain, state that  they contain wonderful ledges or deposits of copper ore. .  ANOTHER   BANK   RACE.  J. Anderson Heads a Bank of B. N. A. Party  for Atlin.  Mr. Jas.' Anderson, until recently  manager of the Greenwood branch of  the Bank of B. N. A., is head of a  party which left Vancouver last week  to open a branch of the bank at Atlin.  Mr. Anderson will not have even the  comforts of a billiard hall in which to  begin business, as a large tent is to be  erected at Atlin and a general banking business transacted therein. The  Bank of B. N. A. and the Canadian  Bank of Commerce are having another  wild race for the Atlin business. The  Bank of B. N. A party left on Wednesday and the Bank of Commerce party  on Thursday. The latter bank has the  advantage in securing temporary  quarters.  Each party received instructions to  push through as rapidly as possible.  Neither horses nor dogs accompany  the Bank of B. N. A. party and packers were secured to . carry their outfits  over the pass.  s�� 4* <#�� 4* # # # <$* 4* 4* ^ 4* #2  4�� Barrett Block, Copper Street, ��g,  4�� ��� '     4��  4�� GREENWOOD. 4��  4*  4*  ��� ( -      r       *     .  ii  if  II  it  ��� ��� a  r  i!
