Vol. I,  GREENWOOD CITY, B.C, SATURDAY, MARCH 6, 1897,  , 26.  TOPICS   TOR   THE   WEEK.  A g-entleraan by the name of Cottam recently visited  Boundary, and, after spending- several days in the camp,  purchased two claims, one the I^ondon, in Skylark, the  other the Morning Star, in Wellington camp. The purchase  price of the former was $100 and of the latter $250, if we are  correctly informed. On the L/ondon there is a small vein of  quartz, perhaps a foot wide, assaying between $50 and $60,  which is, of course, a- satisfactory showing enough for a  claim valued at the sum of one hundred dollars. The  Morning Star has nothing as yet to recommend it beyond  the fact that it adjoins the St'. Klmo���a fairly good prospect.  On the strength of these purchases, which by-therway were  obtained "on time," Mr. Cottam and others have issued a  prospectus and organized the International Co-operative  Mining Company, capital stock $10,000,000 ! All the stock  is to, be placed in the treasury (it is not stated who- keeps  the key), but Mr. Cottam as vice-president, etc., etc.. of the  conipany will be a silly man if he does not receive back, the  money he spent in travelling from Tacoma to Greenwood  and return after the first allotment of shares is sold. Further comment is hardly necessary.  ���Me-  We confess that we have not much sympathy for investors  who purchase claims first without verifying the statements  of vendors and then wake up one fine morning to "find that  they have been made famous idiots of. The verdict generally is " serves 'em right." Just so. But, nevertheless the  the small investor is a useful man. It was his class who  built up Rossland, and it does a camp no good when a man  g-oes away and gives out, as some, not perhaps all, will, that  he was badly" bilked " in such and such a place. Some  provision should be made to protect the small investor, and  he should be warned whenever an opportunity occurs to be  careful in his dealings with men who are known to be notoriously unscrupulous.  &�����*���    *V��*  ���*����*"    ���JJ*.**"  1R-  Naturally enough the shooting affair at Midway has been  the all-absorbing topic  of  conversation  during  the  week.  Why has Mr. McMynn not given himself up, or why has he  not been arrested for the alleged offence ? has been  repeatedly asked.    Up to the time of going to press  we  have  not  heard that any steps have been  taken   towards  instituting  an enquiry, but that there will be an enquiry no one   at   all  doubts.    Nevertheless, it is only reasonable to infer that as  Mr. Hood has as yet failed to  lay   an information   against  the man who shot at him, that both  Mr.   McMynn   and the  two constables have grounds for believing that the shooting  last Friday was justified, and not,   therefore, an indictable  offence.    If they have not, the constables are deserving of  strong censure for failing to do their duty.   Uutil, however,  the evidence on both sides has been heard  it  is  impossible  to express a just and unbiased opinion on the ins  and  outs  of this decidedly strange case;  moreover  it  should  be  remembered by those who have already tried and  condemned  Mr. McMynn in their own minds that he is at least entitled  to the same consideration accorded in British courts of  law  to prisoners, namely the assumption that a man is innocent  until his guilt is established.    That Mr. McMynn in a letter  to Mr. Hood expresses regret for having shot him, is no admission that the shooting was done under entirely  unjustifiable circumstances, notwithstanding that the act was partially attributed to the effects of nervousness  following  an  attack of illness, must be acknowledged.    Though whether  an officer can make an excuse of this kind  and  still  retain  his position is another question.    Knowing the indignation  that had been aroused by the corroborative story of the four  witnesses to the shooting, we are inclined to think that Mr.  McMynn would have shown a better spirit and strengthened  his own cause had he at once taken the bull by the horns  and courted an enquiry, whatever his other reasons may  have been for not doing so.  ���Vftv  It will astonish nobody if many of the mineral, claims in-  the vicinity of Vernon turn out to be in the . course of the  next year or so dividend paying mines and, who can tell,  worthy rivals to Rossland's I^e Roi. They have some wonderful showings at Camp Hewit, and reports therefrom  have recently been most encouraging. The people of Vernon seem to have been blessed with more thaii a fair share  of Nature's bounties.  a*/*    *��*.     *��*���  ���Sj-i*        "����*���        If?  NOVEL   METHQD   OF   PLACER   MINING.  Mention was made last year in the local papers of a novel  method of mining for _5lacer gold that was, about to be tried  on the Similkameen river. Further particulars of the venture have recently been received as follows :���    ���  A stern wheel steamer has been built and fitted  with  all  the appliances for hydraulic mining by  a  certain  Captain  Finch.    Pumps capable of handling 150 cubic feet of gravel  per hour form the principal part of the  machinery.    These  pumps are operated on an  8-inch  hose,   and  the gravel  is  pumped from the bed of the  river.    This  hose can.take, up  a boulder six and a half inches in size from a depth of fifty  feet to a height of over twenty feet above the  water levej.  All of the material passes through a g-rizzly, and is  treated  much the same way as in ordinary sluice-box mining*.   This  principle, however, is not  a  new  one,  but  the  method  of  prospecting the bed of the stream is. decidedly so, being no  less than the employment of a deep sea. diver to  search  the  river bottom for the most likely spot whereat to operate the  pumps.    The history of the  boat  and its passage  up  the  Similkameen is interesting.    The boat was built at Wehat-  chee in the Winter of 1895-96 and  completed  last June;    It  was then taken up  the  Columbia  to  the  Okanagan,   then  steamed to Oro, a distance of about ninety miles, and  from -  thence several miles up the Similkameen, where  it  is  now  anchored in readiness for the commencement of  operations  when conditions are  favorable.    Much of  the ground  that  will be prospected was worked nearly forty years   ago,   but  only the coarser gold was  saved  by  the crude  appliances  used in those days.    The result  of  this  novel  experiment  will be awaited with interest.  ���S'/S"  SALE   OF   GREENWOOD   LOTS.  The time of the option given to Messrs. L,ee & Anderson,  representing a syndicate of Rossland business..men, of purchasing 54 Greenwood City lots, expired on Wednesday of  last week, the syndicate accepting the terms imposed by  the townsite conipany and binding themselves to expend  $2,000 in building upon the property within four months  from the date of the signing of the agreement/ There is  still a remote possibility, however, that the dear will .not be  carried through, as a promise was first made that the lower  part of Government street, where the majority of the lots  selected by the syndicate are situated, should be graded by  the 1st of June ; but it is now thoug-ht that the work cannot  well be completed before the 1st of July, and the syndicate  will be asked to agree to this amendment to the /original  arrangement. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  ODD-FELLOWSHIP.  Pursuant to instructions from the  hig-her authorities, Mr. O. B. Nelson,  district deputy grand master, came  over from Carson on Monday, accompanied by a number of the members of  Carson L,odge, for the purpose of instituting- a lodge of the Independent Order of Oddfellows in Greenwood. The  school-room had been fitted up temporarily for use as a hall, and will be used  as such until a new building is erected.  The usual formalities were commenced  about 8 o'clock and were continued till  midnight, but space is too limited to  describe in detail the weird and mystical features of the ceremony ;, suffice it  to say that Boundary Valley I^odge,  No. 38, I.O.O.F., is now a duly organized lodge of the Order, with full powers and privileges, and is the first  secret society on Boundary Creek to receive its charter. The first regular  meeting- was held on the following  night, when several new members were  initiated ; future meetings will be held"  every Tuesday evening; at 7.30.  At the conclusion of Tuesday's meeting an adjournment, was made to the  Palace hotel, Anaconda, where a sump- f  tuous collation had been provided and  where a couple of hours were passed  in fraternal goodfellowship. Among  those present were Bros. O. B. Nelson,  ID. Spragget, D. McLaren, E}. Driscoll,  Scott McRae, Murray, Docksteadder,  G. McKague, Smith (Portland) and  others resident near by, in addition to  the members ,of the newly-instituted  lodge.  The officers duly installed are :  N.G.���Thos. Hardy.  V.G.���R. Smailes.

[We are in no way responsible for  the opinions  ofour correspondents'^]   "-  Greenwood, March 1st, 1897.  To the Editor, Boundary Creek Times :  Sir,���A representative meeting of the miners  and merchants was held in Greenwood City at  3 o'clock this afternoon, when the following  resolution was unanimously passed: "That  the following gentlemen be appointed a committee to represent the citizens and to memorialize the Attorney-General in regard to the  shooting of Mr. R. J. Hood by Mr. W. G. McMynn, chief constable and recorder, namely,  G. A. Rendell, S. Breslauer, J. Fisher and Leslie Hill; that this committee have full power  to emplo3' counsel and do all things necessarj-  to secure a full and impartial investigation of  this shooting." All those who did not receive  notice of this meeting will kindly excuse it, as  it was necessary to get out the papers in time  to catch Tuesday's mail.  The committee afterwards met and, having  obtained the legal advice of Mr. Hallett, drew  up the enclosed memorial which will be forwarded to the Attorney-General, Hon. Col. Baker (minister of mines), Mr. Hussey (supt. of  police), Mr. Graham, and to the press. There  is no doubt that the Government will do its  dut3r in this matter and that a full and exhaustive enquiry will be held and justice will  be done.

A, nieeting of representative citizens  . of Greenwood was held on Monday  afternoon in the offices of the Boundary Creek Kngineering & Assaying  Co., to discuss the shooting of Mr.  Hood by the mining recorder, Mr. Mc-  Mynn. Mr. Iyeslie Hill was appointed  to the chair and briefly stated the reasons for convening the meeting, reading Mr. McMynn's letter to  Mr.   Hood  as follows :  Government Office, Midwa3',  Feb. 26th, 1897.  Reginald J. Hood, Esq.,  Greenwood City, B.C.:  Sir,���I am verjr sorry indeed to learn that  you were wounded in the arm here this morning- by me with a^glancing pistol bullet.  About 3.40 this morning-1 was awakened out  of a heavy sleep by a hammering- noise, which  ' I took to be someone breaking- the office ; also  hearing-  talking-   and people walking- on  the  floor, and a few minutes afterwards on looking-  out of the kitchen window saw someone walking- up and down on the snow in  front of the  office door.     While  watching- this  man  Miss  McKenzie came to me and told me some people  were hammering- in the office.   I then  rushed,  outside bare-headed with only a few clothes on,  and   you   know  what   followed.     When   first  awakened I was wet with perspiration, caused  by a drug-which I had taken a few  hours before, and for the previous week had been  most  of the time in bed under Dr. Jakes' care.    I was  therefore very weak'and presume that this drug-  also acted upon my nerves, hence the hasty action which I took to frig-hten the people whom  I,thoug-ht were around.    I know that if  I  had  been in ordinary, .health  I  would have acted  very differently, but now that the action is over  I can only express my sorrow for the( result  and trust that in a few days you will be all  rig-lit again.���Yours faithfully,  , ,   ��� W. G. McMYNN.'   -  Mr. Wm. L,ewis, who was with Hood  when the shooting occurred, was  then  asked to tell what he knew of the matter.    With  the  exception1 of  the  fact  that he stated that Hood was standing  on the platform before the door of  the  recorder's office when  the shots  were  fired, his account did not differ in  any  particular from the  report of the  occurrence    published    in   last   week's  Times.    Several of those present  expressed   astonishment   that   Mr.   Mc-  Mynn had not up to that time been arrested and was still acting as a government official.    After a short discussion  Messrs. Hill,   Rendell.   Breslauer  and  Fisher   were. appointed  a  committee,  with full power to act as the  representatives of the citizens,   to  memorialize  the Attorney-General,   the  Provincial  Secretary, Superintendent Hussey and  Mr. Graham, M.P.P.  enclosure  The  following  have been   for-  letter   and  warded :  Greenwood, March 1st.  Sir :���On the morning- of 26th Feb. 1897, a  prospector named Reginald J. Hood while waiting- at the Record office at Midway was shot  throug-h the arm by W. G. McMynn, chief  constable and mining* recorder. T The enclosed  copy of a letter written by McMynn will give  his version of what took place.  From the evidence of Mr. Wm. Lewis, who  was present at the time,-and others, it seems  that Mr. McMynn fired three shots at Lewis  and Hood. One shot passed close to their  heads, one,passed throug-h Hood's arm and one  struck the railing- close to them. Mr. McMynn,  after Hood had exclaimed that he was shot  fired three more shots. Therefore you will see  that by Mr. McMynn's own statement that he  is totally unfit to hold the office of constable  and that by the evidence of others he has committed a serious criminal offence, namely  shooting-with intent to kill.  So far no action has been taken by anyone in  authority and an evident attempt is being- made  to shield McMynn from the consequences of his  action. Mr. McMynn is still acting- as constable, therefore it has become necessary that the  citizens should take action in the matter;.  At a representative meeting- of the citizens  held in Greenwood City this day the following  g-entlemen were appointed a committee to represent the citizens, namely : G. A. Rendell, S.  Breslauer, J. Fisher and Leslie Hill.  We therefore call upon you to suspend this  constable from his office and we demand that  you hold a full and impartial enquiry.  &     &.     JL &c& Bl. St*.

In justice to the purchasers of lots oh  the flat at the north end of Government  street, some immediate steps should be  taken by the Greenwood townsite agent  to have the log jams removed from  Boundary cr.eek and the course of the  stream straightened at several points  where abrupt bends are apt to cause  ah overflow.

ASSOCIATION.  The regular meeting of the Association was held in the school-house on  Wednesday, instead of Tuesday evening (the usual night,���the Oddfellows  occupying the room that evening).  There was a larger attendance of members than usual. After the minutes of  the previous meeting had been read and  passed, the following letters, received  by the secretary, were considered :  From the Chief Commissioner of. Tit.  & W.,  acknowledging  receipt of petition re road from Greenwood to North  Fork ; from A. Cameron, C.P.R. freight  agent, notifying  the. association  that  his company, although undertaking to  pay Mr.   Snodgrass   for   transferring  goods to Okanagan Falls  to  equalise  conditions of carriage,  would  assume  no. responsibility for loss  or  damage  to the goods after their removal  from  the wharf at Penticton ; from  Mr.  Iv.  Norris, government agent  at Vernon,  in reply to a request for a copy of the  voters' list for  Yale  district,   stating  that he intended immediately  preceding the court of revision, to be held at  Vernon on the first Monday in August  next, to place a copy of the  list  as  it  then stands in the  government  offices  at Midway and Osoyoos.    This will be  done to expedite the  work of revision  and to ensure a thorough collection  of  all names entitled  to "be  on   the list.  There was no  provision  made  in  the  Act for supplying copies gratis.   From  Mr. Harber, manager of The Times,  stating that the room used  as  a reading-room had been rented and requesting that the Association's furniture be  remoVed.  as  soon  as .possible.    From  Mrs. Wood, expressing thanks for  the  resolution of sympathy  on  account of  Mr. Wood's illness.  With regard to Mr.  Cameron's  communication,   Mr.    Galloway    said   he  hardly thought the C.P.R.   were  quite.  carrying out   what   was  expected   of  them by refusing to assume  responsibility for the safe carriage of  goods to  Okanagan  Falls.     Half  a loaf,   howr  ever, was better than no bread, and he  supposed there  was  no  choice  but  to  rest content with the concessions so far  granted.    Mr. Worgan asked  whether  Mr. Snodgrass could not be approached  on the subject of  his  responsibility in  the matter.    Mr. Smailes said  that  if  the C.P.R. would not assume responsibility, Mr. Cameron should be informed  that he could not expect the merchants  of Boundary to contract to patronise the  C.P.R.     under    these   circumstances.  The Secretary promised to write to Mr.  Cameron to this effect.  Mr. Hallett drew the attention of the  nieeting to the fact that there was as  yet no collector of votes for the Bast  riding of Yale. He had written to the  Provincial Secretary on the subject  and was awaiting a reply. Meanwhile  he had" not sent away the names of  those desirous of being placed on the  voters' list.  The chairman remarked on the fact  that the Greenwood camp road was not  being used by teamsters, and consequently the stages were oblig-ed to  travel over the main trunk road.    This  road had been built at considerable expense and he thought it a pity that it  was not used. The road could be opened first by a snow-plough, followed by  hauling logs over it to beat down the  snow.  Mr. L,amb remarked that at the request of Mr. Rumberger, who complained to him that residents in Greenwood camp were obliged to walk to  town to get their mail, owing to the  stages ceasing to travel over the road,  he had enquired why the road was not  used bj* teamsters and was informed  that the government road was preferred, being shorter and with fewer  up-hill, grades.  Mr. Breslauer thought it was impossible to freight over the Greenwood  camp road; the distance was greater  and freighters were unable to make  the turns.     .  "Mr. Smailes said if the Association  would send a four-horse team to assist  in making the, road passable, Mr.  Graaf had promised his own services  and that of his hired man for the work.  He moved that a committee be appointed to enquire into the Condition of the  road and take steps to open it for traffic.  Messrs. Kerr, Rendell and Galloway  were asked to act as a. committee.  Mr. Rendell explained that the timber by the road side on the summit was'  'mainly responsible for the. impassable  condition of the road in spring. The  road inspector should be asked to clear  away this timber for 40 feet on each  side of the road.  Mr. Kerr said he would act upon this  committee with pleasure if he was first  shown where the funds were coming,  from to carry out this proposed work.  Mr. Galloway : That is for the committee to find out!.  Mr. Breslauer asked if  a  statement ���  of the Association's liabilities had been  prepared.  Mr. Sansom (secretary) replied at  some length, stating that the Association was perfectly able to pay all the  debts incurred if members would pay  their dues. He already had paid some  of the bills against the Association out  of his own pocket. He would sooner,  he said,. pay money himself than go  around dunning each individual member for his dollar.  Mr. Nelson proposed that the names  of members delinquent in their dues be  read at the next nieeting.  A discussion then followed regarding  the printing of the Association's folder  at Midway. Mr. Galloway explained  that the local printers had refused the  work. Mr. Black said that it had been  considered preferable to have the folder  printed as near home as possible. Mr.  Lamb then stated that an estimate had  been obtained from the Province Co.  whereby at least $30 would have been  saved and a far handsomer job issued ;  that this was explained to Mr. Black  at the previous meeting, who had promised to come down and talk it over the  following day ; but that for reasons  best known to himself he had taken  the liberty, without calling the committee together, of sending away the  work to Mr. Norris.  A vote of thanks was tendered The  Times proprietors for the free use of  the room just vacated.  Mr. Gordon moved, seconded by Mr.  Breslauer, that the secretary be instructed to prepare a balance sheet, to  be presented at the next meeting.���  Carried. ' '!  There being no further business, the  meeting then adjourned.  *^*9t*9*Z>9+G*&*��>-9<9>+*9W-40***<a>'9+U>O<9>9<9>9-��>��<B  5 ���  T  *  V  ���  A  *J  V  a  V  Proprietors of the  VERNON   SAW,  PLANING   AND  l  l  *  l  A  I  A  V  e  A  MOULDING MILLS   _  Sash and Door Factoid at Vernon.

W. Miller, formerly of Rossland, has  decided to open a tailoring establishment in Greenwood.  Mr. Fritz Haussener sold two of his  lots on Copper street, near the Windsor  hotel, this week for $400 each.  Messrs. G. Seymour & Co. botight  one of the lots occupied by the Windsor  hotel from Mr. Powell last week for  $500.  Messrs. Hain and L/imdy, of Midway,  have arranged a partnership to engage  in the business of general store-keepers.  Mr. Hain left for the coast this week  to purchase a stock.  The call for subsciptions to defray  the cost of retaining counsel, if found  necessary, in Mr. Hood's interests, has  been most liberally responded to in  Greenwood and Anaconda.  Mr. Leslie 'Hil.l left this week for  Vernon to look after a hydraulic property owned by the syndicate near that  place. The property has a very promising future.    Mr. Hill  expects  to  re-.  turn within a fortnight's time.  *  Mr. Iy. K. Jacobson is erecting a  two-storey building, 24x30, on Copper  street, which will be opened as a restaurant. It is a; significant and noteworthy fact that of the new buildings  now going up in the. town all are of  the superior and substantial class.  At Midway on Tuesday Mr. Parks, a  placer miner working on Boundary  creek, was charged with putting out  poison without complying with the  statutory regulations before doing so.  The case was dismissed on the evidence  of two witnesses,-Jolly Jack and his  wife, who testified to the innocence of  the,accused. Jolly Jack, charged with  the same offence, pleaded guilty, stating that he had made his living for the  last thirty years by poisoning coyotes.  He was fined $2,���the amount due his  wife and himself as witnesses in the  Parks case.  Mr. J. C. Haas returned during, the  early part of the week from a visit to  Northport. He held, he says, while  there a conversation with one of the  officials of the S. F. & N. R'y Co. who  informed him that it was Mr. Corbin's  intention to build a road to Boundary-  at once from Northport utilising the  bridge that is now being- constructed  at that place across the Columbia  river. Mr. Haas further stated that  five hundred men were employed on  the construction of the Trail-Robson  branch of the Columbia & Western,  and he was told on g-ood authority that  directly this line was completed, work  would be started on the construction of  the section of the road towards Christina lake.  Only 35,000 Brandon and Golden  Crown treasury shares are being put  on the market at present. Of these,  Mr. G. H. Collins has the sale of 10,000.  The shares are selling at 10c. and are  already in great demand at that price.  Work has been suspended for the  time being on the Croner, owned by  Messrs. Olson & Phelan, in Providence  camp. A shaft was put down 14 feet  showing up a quartz ledge eighteen  inches wide.

Mrs. Keffer, who is a graduate of the  same university at which her husband  took his degree, has undertaken all Mr.  Keffer's analytical work during his  absence at Rossland.  " Jack " Eucy returned from Rossland on Thusday.  Mr. Guthrie, one of the first men to  prospect in the Slocan, is staying at  the Palace Hotel, and expects to remain at Anaconda for some time.  The pamphlet issued by the Commercial Club this week has met with general approbation. A number of copies  have already been distributed in Canadian and American cities, some being  also sent to England.  At the meeting of the Club on Wednesday, a letter was addressed to the  Minister of Mines asking that the  Provincial Mineralogist, Mr. Carlyle,  be invited to visit and report on the  Boundary Creek district at an early  date. A committee was also appointed  to ascertain the price of a suitable piano  for the Club's use. It was decided that,  at the next meeting members should  deliver short speeches on" the "best  method of advancing the Club's interests." Mr. Kelliher was ..elected to  membership.     '      .  '   v \  />?:''���  British Capital and British Columbia.  H .:  Mr. G. T. Hodgson returned to Greenwood on Tuesday after spending;two  months in England, and^ was- very  warmly welcome^, back. Mr. Hodgson  says that while/ British Columbia is  much talked of in the Old^ Country  the investing'public are^yet a bit chary  rof risking'mohey'in the new gold fields  of the West. As witness the recent  failure to float, two much talked of  British Columbia companies in Eondon  the names of prominent men on the  prospectuses notwithstanding. The  probable reason for this is the slump  in South Africans, which has temporarily-had. the effect of decreasing the  extent of speculation in mining snares  however promising the enterprise.  Yet there is no question but that matters will right themselves in due course  and that British capital will chiefly  develop the mines of British Columbia.  Both Mr. Digby, who purchased the  Queen of Sheba, in Copper camp, last  year, and Mr. Drucker, M.P., intend  visiting; Boundarym at an early dkte.  Mr. Drucker expects to leave England  for Greenwood directly the present  session of the Imperial House'closes.  Highland Queen Consolidated.  The necessary papers have been forwarded to Victoria giving notice of the  incorporation of the Highland Queen  Consolidated Mining Company, capital  $1,000,000. The provisional trustees  are Ji W. Penfield and J. Brightfelger,  of Spokane, F. McEaine and C. E.  Thomet, of Midway ; Mr. Thomet has  also been appointed the company's  manager. The company have acquired three properties, the Highland Chief,  the Snowdrop, about two miles east of  Midway, and the Big Windy, in Providence camp, all with good surface  showings. Work is to be started immediately on the Snowdrop, and shortly on the other claims.- It is the intention of the company to apply for crown  grants as soon as possible.  The shaft on the Rambler, Pass  creek, is down 35 feet. A sort of fault  was encountered last week, but this  was passed through and there is now a  marked improvement in the appearance of the ore in the bottom of the  shaft.  *4��r t-gtr W%V v^W <4g* W$*  W.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  U.  __ss  GREATER   GREENWOOD."  It is to be hoped that Messrs. Sutherland & Wood, the owners of the Dundee mineral" claim, which is practically  a part of the Greenwood townsite-, will  see the advisability of having- the property surveyed into lots at an early  date and placed on the market. Some  of the finest building- sites in the valley  are to be found on the ridges at the  southern end of town, and now that  the townsite company have but few  lots to dispose of on the main streets of  the original townsite, provision should  be made in order that strang-ers coming- to Greenwood and proposing- to establish themselves in business may  have every opportunity to do so. There  is no reason why the town - should not  grow in a southerly, as it undoubtedly  will in a northerly, direction; in fact  it has-been the general",belief that the  two towns of Greenwood and Anaconda  will eventually'merg-e into one la'rg-e  business centre for the whole district,  making' possible an economic system  of local government by one civic corporation. This is a consummation devoutly to be wished.  As a step in the rig-ht direction the  residents of both Greenwood and Anaconda should call the attention of Mr.  Norris, the government ag-ent at .Vernon, to the unsatisfactory state of the  hig-hway between the two places. . At.  a comparatively small expense a direct  and level road could be laid off, connecting- Copper street at Greenwood  with Butte avenue at Anaconda, necessitating- two small bridges over Boundary creek and avoiding the present  serpentine course of the road.  A Useful Publication.  A new map of the Osoyoos district of  Yale has just  been  completed  by  the  Eands and Works department at  Victoria.    Though similar in appearance  to the one issued in 1893, the new  map  gives   more  especial  prominence  and  details of the mining country adjacent  to the boundary.    Christina lake is for  the first time shown with  some degree  of  exactness;   Grand  Forks   and  the  camps up the North fork of Kettle river  receive due prominence ; but it is that  portion of the map showing the Boundary Creek district where the  greatest  change  has  been  made.     Where  the  map of 1893 showed merely a creek and  a dotted trail  " to Marcus,"   there  are  now   shown   towns,    mining    camps,  claims   and   pre-emptions  clear  from  Midway to Eong lake  and Kimberley.  The map was revised and brought  up  to date by local surveyors,   and  consequently  is   one   of the most reliable  issued by the department.  Miners' Surface Rights.  At Nelson last week Judge Forin  gave a decision on the right to the surface of mineral claims which is of considerable importance. The case before  him was an application on behalf of G.  M. Sproat, part owner of the townsite  of Sandon, for a receiver of the rents  claimed to be due by C. K. Hammond,  of the Slocan News Co. The judge refused the application upon the ground  that a crown grant of a mineral claim  gave no surface rights other than for  mining purposes. He held that the  holder could not eject an occupier from  ground not required for mining purposes. He said further that if the  moneys were ordered paid by Hani-;  mond to a receiver, Sproat could not  properly or legally claim them, and it  was not very clear to him to whom they  would ultimately go.

A concentrator is be installed shortly at the Victoria mine, Camp McKinney. �� ."������'���  Good headway is being made on the  No. 9, the tunnel having been driven  for, 25 feet in ore.  A day and night shift have been put  on to work in the D. A. tunnel. The  property is looking very well.  A large deposit, of fire-clay of excellent quality has been discovered in the  vicinity of the Rock Greek coal beds.  Seven pack-horses literally hidden  from sight under huge loads of charcoal were driven up to the No. 7 on  Wednesday.  A half-interest in the Blue Jay, near  Vernon, recently bonded for $10,000,  was sold by Mr. F. M. Kerby a few  months ago for $25.
