Vol, II,  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY/ MARCH 29, 1897,  29  No, 3,  TOPICS   TOR   THE   WEEK.  o forOORONTO, apparently, is the mining brokers' Mecca,  JL and probably more wild-cat schemes are successfully  floated there than in any other Canadian city. The  columns of the local daily papers are well crammed with  advertisements of an alluring and seductive nature, by  which,the gullible small investor is led into spending his  meagre savings in the purchase of what, in the majority of  instances, proves to be absolutely worthless mining stock.  One Toronto newspaper has hit on the novel. plan of increasing its circulation by an offer of 30 mining: shares to  be presented to each subscriber on payment of $3.00, which  . includes a subscription for a year to the journal in question..  Sic  -OF  Sic  ftp  S'c  ?iP  The Gold Hills Exploration & Development Co., of Toronto, has been recently incorporated with a proposed capital  stock.of $2,000,000. Hon. J. D. Edgar, Q.C., speaker of the  House of Commons of Canada, heads the list of provisional  directors, and an Acting Premier of a province has also  lent his name to the scheme. From this one learns that the  practice of a man using the influence of his official position  to further a private enterprise, is not alone peculiar to B.C.  However, the company's advertisement which, it is needless  to say, appears in a Toronto newspaper, after assuring, the  . investor that he is promised no enormous dividends [good  point this], still the probability of large returns compared  with the possibility of only a small loss at the worst; must  commend the company's plan to him, goes on to say that  " the management has SECURED the following interests in  British Columbia and Ontario :"  1.���Options on three promising- locations near Rossland.  2.���Two locations in Rainy River district, one of which will be examined minutely in the spring-, Avhilst the other is under neg-otiation.  3.���Two properties in the wonderful Slocan (silver) District, one in the  Whitewater Basin, being- under option held by us, the other in which an  interest is being- neg-otiated for at present.  4.���Locations in Jackfish ~Ba.y, having- an area of about 500 acres, which  will be carefully examined b}r our experts with a view to purchase.  5.���A location in Boundary Creek district, which is weil mineralized  and which will be reported on early in spring-. In the event of good reports, work thereon will be pushed"rapidly, and if thoug-ht advisable by  the manag-ement purchase will be proceeded with ; besides several other  partially developed properties in the Lake of the Woods, Trail Creek,  Slocan and Boundary districts are receiving- our attention.  There is a slight " ambiguity" about No. 2,���possibly the  company actually own .one of the two locations in the Rainy  River district. If not, then the company's plan, which will  commend itself to anyone, is to take up certain options with  money obtained from the sale of "a limited number of  shares now offered to the public at 10c. per share in blocks  of not less than 100 shares." Thismay.be perfectly legitimate enterprise, but to the ordinary man it seems to be a  sort of " heads I win, tails you lose" speculation for the  promoters.  ���7K-  ���Slf  flP  A resident of Greenwood who recently returned from the  Coast states that little or nothing is heard of the Boundary  Creek district among those who in the Coast cities are  taking an active interest in the mineral resources of the  various parts of the province. Whilst it may be that the  gentleman responsible for the statement was not fully informed upon this subject, the fact that in the circles in  which he moved this section, with its extensive area of mineral country and the great possibilites suggested by the  numerous and important discoveries already made, there  was no mention made of Boundary, indicates the necessity for continued judicious and persistent effort to disseminate information relative to the discoveries already made  and the wide field still unexplored and awaiting the': attention of prospectors.   Much has doubtless already been done,  and is still being done, but whilst so many sections of the  province are claiming the attention of the prospector and  investor, it is imperative that every legitimate means to  advertise the Boundary Creek district, big with promise as  it certainly is, be taken advantage of. An instance of the  importance of keeping the claims of the district well before  the public has just come under our notice. Some Texas  men, attracted by newspaper references to the Rossland  mines, left their distant home for the Kootenay, but upon  reaching Spokane they were informed of the inducements  offered by this section, so they decided to come here instead  of carrying out their original intention., A result will.be  that others from that quarter will now be informed of the  many chances of, success obtaining here. This may be only  a very small gain, but it is one drop in the river of increase  which is desired by all who have the best interests of the  district at heart. So, notwithstanding that much has been  already done, there must be effort renewed again and again  ���not boom methods with their inevitable reaction of disappointment and disaster, but the broadcast dissemination of  plain unvarnised facts, which are of themselves ample to  convince all unprejudiced enquirers that there does indeed  appear to be a big and prosperous future before the Boundary Creek district, in which Greenwood will erelong.;be a  large and important centre.  sic   sic  ���alP  ���*�����  iiP  i  The following clipping from the Spokane  Chronicle goes  to show that Heinze's Columbia & Western project has  not  altogether fallen into "innocuous desuetude :"  >A mortgage for $1,500,000 has been, filed in the county  auditor's office at Butte on all the property of the Montana  Ore Purchasing Co., including its smelters, claims, leases,  etc., in favor of Richard Iyacy, of New York:. The Montana  Ore Purchasing Co. is practically owned by F. Aug. Heinze  and his brother, A. P. Heinze. The mortgage was authorised at a meeting of the company held at its New York  office on March 8th. The filing of this mortgage undoubtedly has a great significance regarding Mr. Heinze's future  in British Columbia. lyast winter when he failed to raise  the money in England for the extension of his Columbia &  Western railroad, Mr. Heinze announced confidently that  the road would be built just the same. A few days ago he  again announced that he would commence building his road  from Robson to Penticton as soon as the weather became  settled. From the ;fact that he has just mortgaged his  Butte property for the enormous sum of $1,500,000, it may.  safely be gathered that Heinze intends to put up the money  himself. If this latter surmise be true it certainly shows a  wonderful faith on the part of Mr. Heinze in the future development of British Columbia.  Sic     Sic     S'c  ?iP     17P     fiP  *IP  ">tP  Rather undue importance was attached  in  certain  quarters to the results obtained from a test made some weeks ago  with the object of determining whether o.^'not the low-grade  ore from the lye Roi mine at Rossland would give profitable  returns from milling and concentrating treatment.    In this  test only 10^' tons were treated ;   and taking into  consideration that the ore was of low grade and the well-established  fact that plates long in use themselves carry values, the result of this experiment cannot  be  regarded  as  conclusive.  We are glad to note that a second test has been  carried out  ���this time of 50 tons of ore, an adequate quantity to demonstrate the question ; and although no  detailed  information  concerning the results has been  received, we are told" the  showing is remarkably good and far ahead of the first."   If  this statement, is correct it means a great deal, not only  to  Rossland but to Boundary, and large  quantities  of ore  in  both camps, similar to that treated,  will  become  commercially valuable which otherwise would  not  have  been  the  case.    Mining itself, too, will in niany cases be less expensive when there is comparatively little waste rock tohandle. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  Freighting from  Penticton.  Word has been received that Mr. J.  M/ Bassett intends to put five four-  horse teams on the Penticton road at  once, and possibly ten teams later on  in the year. The charg-e for freighting-  from Okanag-an Falls to Greenwood  will be l^c. per pound the year round.  Colorado Prospectors Bound for Boundary.  Among- the arrivals on Sunday's  stage was Mr. C. A. Siving*o, a  Mexican mining man, who was induced  to visit the district by the enthusiastic  reports of the mineral wealth of Boundary which he had,heard in his far-off  native land. Mr. Sivingo says that a  number- of Colorado and some Mexican  miners intend prospecting here this  summer.  Snow on the Greenwood Road.  Mir. S. Martin, eng-ag-ed by the Boundary Creek Mining- & Commercial Association to make the road from Green-  wopd throug-h Greenwood and Welling--  tori camps passable, completed his work  on Saturday last. Teamsters, however, complain that the road is still far  from being- in g-pod condition. Mr. McKee, leaving Greenwood on Monday  with a load of meat for Grand Forks,  after completely tiring- out one of his  horses, only"succeeded in reaching- the  Snowshoe boarding--house before nig-ht-  fall. On Tuesday Mr.. Comstock had  the greatest difficulty in driving- a lig"ht  -two-horse cutter over the road. Mr.  Martin says that the snow was fully  six feet deep across the road in places.  A  Capable  Correspondent.  Mr.   ID.   Jacobs,   who   for    thirteen  months   (to  June,  1896) was  the  New-  Westminster    representative    of    the  " News-Advertiser" and who thereafter  until a few weeks ago, was on the staff  of the same newspaper at its  head  office in  Vancouver,   arrived  in  Greenwood on the 29th inst., having- come in  from the  coast  via  Seattle and  Spokane.    Mr.   Jacobs,   having  found   it  necessary for health considerations   to  give up the nig-ht work, a position on a  morning   paper   necessarily  involves,  decided to seek  occupation  in  one   of  the  provincial' mining-   districts,    and  after considering-  the   advantages  the  several mining divisions offer, concluded that the Boundary Creek district  is  at present a  most  favorable  field   for  those prepared   to   await  the  development of its mineral resources.    As Mr.  Jacobs had charge of  the  mining-0 column of the " News-Advertiser,"   he   is  familiar  with the method of reporting-  mining intelligence in such a way as to  make it readable.    Having-, too,   a  reputation  for   carefulness    and   being-  rath er inclined to  be  conservative   in  his statements, it is to be expected that  the news of this section he will, in the  capacity of correspondent, s��end out  to  several  coast,   eastern   and American  newspapers, be both reliable and interesting.  TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.

MINING NOTES.  The main shaft on the Marg-uerite  has been put down 32 feet and is now  being- timbered;  Messrs. Castleman and Smith are  doing assessment work on the Alice  Maud, in Smith's camp. The claim is  looking well.  A fine body of red oxide of iron and  copper ore has been exposed by recent  surface crosscutting on the Harqua  Hala, in Copper camp.  Assays made in Vancouver of ore  from the Oro Fino group of claims at  Fairview, ran respectively $215.91,  $310.80, $355 and $804.90.  The Ealla Rookh, at Christina lake  has been purchased by the Gault Mining Company, the price paid, it is reported, running- into six fig-ures.  Machinery for the R. Bell has been  shipped from Salt Eake and will be installed at the mine directly the new  road into. Summit camp from the North  Fork is built.  The Maple  Eeaf,  in, Camp  McKinney, was sold last week by Mr. Eynch,.  through Mr.   Geo.   B.   McAuley,   to  a  Vancouver syndicate,  Mr. Eytich realizing $9,000 on the sale.  A correspondent to an English paper  from South Africa claims to have established a record in shaft-sinking by  drilling throug-h 141 feet of rock in the  space of a month. The somewhat  ' trivial detail concerning- the hardness  of the rock is not stated.  Remarkably fine copper ore, so rich  that it is calmost malleable, was dis-  , covered a short time ago on the Josie,  in. Summit camp, by the upturning of  a tree. The Josie was twice staked as  a wild-cat, .that is to say without mineral being- found in place.  Mr. W. T. Thompson bonded this  week a group of claims in Skylark  camp, including the Eead King-, Salamander and Comstock, from Messrs.  Haas, Dillier and Black, for an Eng--  lish syndicate. A. substantial sum  was paid to the owners in consideration of the bond.  The first allotment of 35,000 Brandon & Golden Crown treasury stock  shares at 10c. has been sold, and a  second blbck will shortly be put on the  market at an increased price. Mr. A.  Kelly, one of the directors of the company, sold 25,000 shares in Brandon,  Manitoba, in a few days.  Mr. S. S. Fowler, consulting- engineer for the British Canadian Gold  Fields syndicate, is negotiating for a  number of Boundary Creek properties,  throug-h Mr. W. T. Thompson. Mr.  Fowler is expected to arrive in the  camp in the course of a few days. The  British Canadian Gold Fields Co. have  already large interests in the  district.  One of the best developed prospects  in Pass Creek camp is the No. 3, upon  which the owners, Messrs. Smith and  'Estops, have been working- since November last. In one place the claim is  opened up with two open cuts about 30  feet long and from 8 to 12 feet deep.  Here a well defined ledge of decomposed magnetic iron, six feet wide, was  struck. Another ledge was also disclosed and found to be four feet wide ;  the ore, pyrrhotite with copper pyrites,  upon comparison resembled very  closely specimens from the Rossland  Ee Roi. The assay value of this ore  is very much above the averag-e.  L.    Y.    BIRNIE.  #^��g(��g��^((a^((^((^  -DEALERS   IN-  Hardware, Paints and^Oils, Sash and Doors.

SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1S97.
GREENWOOD NOTES AND GOSSIP.
Mrs. I. A. Dinsmore and Mrs. Wrig-ht
of Grand Forks, are the guest of Mrs.
Hart this week;
School was again closed this,, week,
the number of children on the sick list
rendering the step advisable.
Mr. Russell, of Russell & Co., left
this week for the East on the firm's
business, and will be away about three
weeks.
Several patients are being treated at
the hospital, suffering from la grippe.
One of the latest victims to the malady
is Mr. A. Iyeamy, who was taken ill on
Wednesday.
Steady; progress is being made by
the Oddfellows' lodg-e in Greenwood,
new members being initiated at each
meeting. Quite a number of applications are yet on file.
The Greenwood City Mercantile Co.
are shipping to San Francisco a large
parcel of pelts, chiefly martens'. The
skins are in beautiful condition. Most
of the animals were trapped at Pass
creek.
The wife of Mr. W. W. I^amb died
at Vancouver last week. Mr. I^amb,
who is- a nephew of Mr. Robt. Wood,
recently stayed several weeks in Greenwood, and had fully intended to become a permanent resident.
Directly upon Mr. Wood's return
from Victoria, the land owned jointly
by him and Mr. Sutherland adjoining
the original townsite, will be surveyed
and lots put on the market,—as suggested by The Times a few weeks ago.
A man by the name of McKague was
shot and wounded in the side at Fair-
view this week by his wife, from whom
he had separated. The dispute arose
over the insistence of McKague to have
the charge of one of the children of the
marriage.
Mr. T. Miller, who is at present engaged superintending the work of excavation for the Midway irrigation
ditch', met with an accident on Tuesday. Whilst carrying a theodolite his
foot slipped and in his endeavor to save
the instrument from damage he fell,
breaking- the little finger of his right
hand in the fall. Dr. Jakes attended
to the injury and Mr. Miller hopes to
soon again have the full use of his
hand.
Mr. Robt. Wood is now the sole applicant for the private bill incorporating the Greenwood City Water Works
Company, the Vancouver applicants
having withdrawn their names. Mr.
Wood has written to the private bills
committee to say that should Greenwood be incorporated as a municipality within the next few months he will
be prepared to turn the water rights
and works over to the town at cost.
The building, erstwhile an opera
house, but purchased by the proprietors
of The Times and used for the last
seven months as ,a printing office, on
Government street, was sold on Tuesday at a good figure to Mr. T. A. Garland. The Times will shortly be
published from new offices, specially
fitted up with  conveniences,   on  Iyong
Eake street, the plans of the building,
which is to be two storeys high, having-
already been drawn and accepted.
Greenwood is being- besieged by contractors and builders, several representatives of this trade arriving this
week from Rossland alone.
During the past two weeks surveyors
have been subdividing the townsite of
Nelson, on the Colville reservation into lots. There will in all probability
be a big rush to the reservation camps
this spring.
The foundation of Mr. Paton's new
house on Greenwood street has been
already laid. Several carpenters are
engaged upon the building which, it is
hoped will be ready for occupancy in
about three weeks time.
Mr. Ferguson, of Surrey, and a, well-
known 'writer and authority on Chinese
questions, is visiting- Greenwood in the
capacity of an investor. Writing under
the, nom-de-plume of "Fung-us," Mr.
Ferg-uson frequently contributes .articles to the New Westminster Columbian. \" I  ■ *
Mr. Robt. Wood having completely
recovered his health, left the hospital
at Victoria last week and is how on his
way home. He is expected to arrive in
Greenwood on to-morrow's stage, but
may possibly spend a few days with
his nephew, Mr. Hugh Wood, at Armstrong before returning.
Mr. Donald Graham, M.P.P. writes
to The Times explaining that "the.
conditions imposed by private acts are
that cities shall have power to expropriate water works at any time, by
paying- a certain bonus for the same ;
but in case they should instead elect to
put in water works .themselves, (instead of buying out works already constructed) they have perfect liberty to
do so, of course not interfering with
the rig-hts of any-, existing  company.".
MINING NOTES.
Jim Dale starts work next week, on
the Combination in Smith's camp.-
Mr. Hugh Wood, of Armstrong, has
purchased the Climax at Camp McKinney. .
Application will be made next week
for - crown, grants to the Jewel arid
Denero Grande.
The assessment work was completed
this week on the Great Hesper, the
tunnel beingiin between thirty and
forty feet through well mineralized
rock.
The D.A., owned by the Boundary
Creek M. & M. Co., continues to improve. The tunnel is now in about 50
feet, and the vein has considerably
widened: ,..■■"■'
Mr. S. Taylor has taken some capital
photographs of the steam hoist at
work on the Jewel, in Ivong L,ake
camp.. These views will probably be
reproduced in The Times shortly.
Work will be started next week on
the Highland Chief, one of the properties of the Highland Chief Consolidated. An attempt was made without
sticcess to force, a road through the
deep snow this week to the Snowdrop
with the intention of developing this
claim simultaneously with the other.
"Boundary Creek" shares are quoted on the Spokane Stock Exchange at
3c. This stock is issued by the company owning the East Chance in Skylark camp, and must not be confounded with the Boundary Creek M. & M.
Co.'s stock which sells at 10c. and in
all likelihood will be worth a great deal
more before long.

Holbrook put two * men to  work on the Granite Falls, Eholt creek,  on Wednesday.  Mr. W. T. Smith has decided to  await more favorable weather before  sinking" on the Republic.  The Mountain Sheep at McKinney  has been bonded, and a contract let for  sufficient work to be done to entitle the  owner to a crown grant.  The new dies and heels for the Cariboo mill, Camp McKinney, are anxiously expected, and if they were not received at the camp before Wednesday  it would be necessary to close down  the-mill.  There is a fine showing- of" ore, the  ledg-e being- nearly four feet wide, at  the bottom of the shaft on the East  Chance, Smith's camp. . The shaft  takes in a part of the footwall, which  is very soft.  The tunnel on the Clifton is in 75  feet.. The ore at this distance is not as  rich as expected, but as soon as possible the surface will be prospected to  find the most likely spot at which to  open the lead.  The Tidal Wave Mining- Company  have decided to put no stock on the  market until their properties have been  to a certain extent proved by development work. If the prospects . then are  fair the stock will be sold at its full par  value of $1.00 per share. The company is incorporated with a capital  , stock of $750,000.  Mr. Keffer, manag-er of the Boundary Mines Co., proposes shortly to  make a. mill test of Mother Eode ore,  with a view to ascertaining whether it  can be concentrated-^-as is the case  with the Ee Roi ore at Rossland. In  the event of the experiment proving  that this method of treatment is feasible, it will be impossible to attach too  much importance to what may be deduced from, the results.  It-has been decided not to increa.se  the force working- on the Canadian, in  Skylark camp, for the present. Five  miners and a blacksmith are how employed and g-ood progress is being-  made in the shaft. There has been no  material chang-e in the ore in values or  appearance, althoug-h an assay obtained last week ran rather hig-her than  former tests made. Assays of surface  rock returned $30 in g-old and over 300  ozs. of silver to the ton.  W. Shaw is prosecuting- development  work on the Ontario, adjoining- the R.  Bell, in Summit camp. There are two  leads on the property, one being- an extension from the R. Bell. A shaft was  commenced on this lead, but at a depth  of a few feet a fault was encountered  and the work was temporarily abandoned. The other lead is now being-  prospected. Eater on a tunnel will be  driven in the hillside to tap the R. Bell  lead, which it is expected will be struck  at a distance of between 30 and 40 feet  from the mouth of the proposed tunnel.  Business   Changes.  Mr. T. M. Gulley this week took over  the whole of Mr. Paton's stock of furniture and the store on Copper street,  intending at once to larg-ely add to  the present stock by purchasing- the  better class of furniture from well-  known manufacturers and employing  a thoroughly competent cabinet-maker  and upholsterer   in   the   shop   to   fill  orders for home-made articles. Mr.  Paton has boug-ht a lot at the corner  of Greenwood and Summit streets and  intends building- at once.  , As will be seen- by advertisement in  this issue, a change has also been made  in the butcher business hitherto carried  "tin  at  Greenwood,  Grand  Forks   and.  Midway by Kerr Bros.   Mr. J. P. Flood  who  has  been   managing-  the  Greenwood, branch, has purchased Mr. R. D.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  GREENWOOD NOTES AND GOSSIP.  Mr. A. Eeamy has sig-nified his intention of practising- law in Greenwood.  Several fine suites of furniture have  been ordered for the Pioneer hotel, and  are now on the road.  Dan Stewart, a well-known local  miner, was admitted to the hospital on  Sunday last, suffering-  from   lock-jaw.  Mr. Joe Thurber, who justly enjoys a reputation as a competent hotel  manag-er, has. assumed the management of the Eancashire House at  Midway.  Harry Rose has g-iven notice that the  freig-ht rate between Penticton and  Greenwood will be iy2 cents per pound  " while the mud lasts," probably till  the end of June.  Rev. T. Paton, of Grand Forks, will  be in Greenwood next Sunday to dispense communion and to administer  the rite of baptism. Service will be  held at the usual hour, 7.30 p.m.  Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Holbro.ok, formerly of South Dakota, arrived in  Greenwood last Friday and have decided to become permanent residents of  the town. Mr. Holbrook is a brother  of the Boundary Creek,M. & M. Co.'s  manag-er.  Mr. F. Aug-. Heinze, in spite of the  $500,000 suit that is hanging- over his  head, announces that he will extend  his railway at once from the Columbia  river at Robson to Penticton and thence  in all probability to tide water.���Spokane Chronicle. c"  The deer in the vicinity of Pass  creek are exceedingly tame. The other  day a man on the way to Greenwood  from the camp met three deer on the  trail and tried to drive them.off with a  stick. They trotted away for a short  distance and then one of the animals  returned to the path and following- its  assailant g-ently started to nibble at  his coat-sleeve.  Mrl   Andrew   Eeamy    returned    to  Greenwood from New Westminster on  Sunday   and  reports   that   thing-s   are  very   slow   at  the   coast.      Boundary  Creek, he said, mig-ht as well be as far  off as Timbuctoo  for  all  the  interest  taken in its development by the people  of New Westminster or Vancouver  at  the  present  time.    Mr.   Eeamy,   however, succeeded during-  his   absence in  incorporating- a company  to  purchase  and operate a g-roup of  four  claims in  Skylark   camp,   the   Contact,    Ossian  Wave, Tidal  Wave   and  Vernon; and  enoug-h   capital   has   been    raised   to  enable the properties to be well , developed.    The  services   of   a   competent  mining- eng-ineer have been eng-ag-ed to  superintend   the    development   work,  which is to be started shortly.  Mr.   James  Punch,   at   one   time  a  member of the provincial leg-islature,  is visiting- the district as the representative of a Nova Scotia syndicate having- larg-e interests in Boundary. The  syndicate own, among- other claims,  the Spotted Horse and the Boundary  Falls, No. 2. Work is to be started at  once on the Boundary Falls. Mr.  Punch is a mining-man of  experience.

Jtf^  S)  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  Greenwood and Fisherman Creek Road.  Mr. W. T. Smith has written a sensible letter to the Province pointing  out  the necessity of a road being  built, as  already suggested to the  Government,  from Greenwood to the mouth of Fisherman   creek,   connecting    with     the  existing   North   Fork   road.     " As   a  matter of fact," Mr. Smith writes, "the  construction of this road means everything to the   mine-owners  of  Summit  camp, as well as opening up more fully  Providence, Long L,ake and Kiniberly  camps.    To   instance   what   a    direct  bearing this road would have upon the  immediate   development    of    Summit  camp, I would say that Messrs. Farrel  and   Migeon   who   are   the  owners  of  several  properties,  desire  to  take   in  machinery to develop their claims, and,  are only awaiting a means of ingress.  It is top much to expect that the miners  should build their own roads���it generally requires all   their  means   to  keep  up their mining work ; and   after  contributing their quota towards  sustaining  the  Government,   they  naturally  expect some assistance from it."  Reported Sale of the Cariboo.  A report comes from Toronto that a  British company, with a Col. North at  its head, after failing- in an endeavor  to secure the famous War Eagle mine,  turned its attention to the Cariboo, in  Camp McKinney. Negotiations have  been going on for some time, and, according to the information received an  arrangement has been agreed upon  whereby the English company have a  bond on the Cariboo for $560,000, which  is equivalent to 70 cents per share for  the stock. Shares are now quoted on  the Spokane Stock Exchange at '49c.  The same syndicate are also negotiating for the Minnehaha.  Interviewed in Spokane regarding  the above, Mr. Geo. B. McAuley said  ��� " there is not a word of truth in the  statement; the mine is not under bond  to Col. North, nor to anyone else." Mr.  James Monaghan also said, "If the  property has been bonded I know nothing of it." On the other hand, Mr.  Graham, a nephew of Mr. Monag-han,  recently stated to a Times representative when in Greenwood, " that negotiations were in progress for the sale  of the mine to an English syndicate."  ANACONDA   NOTES.  A g-ood many complaints have been  made of the annoyance caused by the  presence of sawdust in the water of  Ivind creek. The water from this  creek is used exclusively for domestic  purposes, and it is stated that water  after standing for a short time becomes  coated with a resinous film. The sanitary inspector should at once restrict  the owners of the sawmill above the  town from throwing refuse into this  creek.  Several residents of Ana-on da. are  suffering from la grippe. Mr. Miller,  secretary of the Commercial Club, has  a very bad attack of the prevailing  sickness, and Mr. George Rankin is  also badly " under the weather "; Mrs.  Tillman also has been seriously ill for  several days.  At the meeting of the Club on Wednesday several communi ".ations were  read by Mr. Keffer,;who acted as secretary, from correspondents enquiring  about different Boundary Creek mining  properties. A Spokane restaurant  keeper wrote stating- he proposed to  establish a restaurant  and  bakery  at  SS  '4   And  UNDERTAKING    I  I beg to notify the public that I have taken over Mr. W. B. PaTON's stock  of Furniture, together with the Store on Copper street, and that the present  stock will be at once added to.

GULLEY  COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD CITY, B.C.  9  either Anaconda or Greenwood, and  asking what the prospects are at the  present time for businesses of this  kind.  On Monday night a fairly large and  thoroughly appreciative audience attended in Wilson's hall the concert  given by "Professors" Voorhees and  Davis, a pair of itinerant musicians.  The banjo and guitar duets were well  worth listening to, in fact the entertainment as a whole was distinctly  tetter than might be expected. The  technique of Davis, the banjoist, was  really wonderful, and no one would believe that the banjo, an instrument  generally associated with comic songs  and breakdowns, was capable of giving- effect to the beauty and pathos of  the Miserere, from El Trovatore, as  under the hands of the skilful performer was,the case the other night.  As a fitting- "wind-up" of the social  gayities of the winter season the "hard  times" dance, under'fne auspices of  the Commercial Club, which took place  last night, w?s most enjoyable. The  dance was well attended.  Mr. L(. D. Kean, a former partner of  Mr. D. A. Holbrook, arrived on yesterday's stage, having been recently in  the Kruger and Palmer mountain  camps, where he boiight twelve claims.  Mr. Kane is on the look out for promising investments in Boundary.  The shaft on the Rob Roy, in Central  camp, Has been sunk to a depth of 50  feet. For the last few feet the rock  proved very hard.  The winter which has been unusually  long and severe can, with the advent  of the warm chinook winds���- and rain  showers of the past few days, be considered a thing- of the past. Despite  the ''demned, moist, unpleasant" state  of the roads from the rapidly melting  snow, the first premonitions of springtime are most welcome. The weather  has a great deal to do with local business prosperity, as every store-keeper  in Boundary knows.
