GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1898.  80  IN   THE   OAMPS.  HE WFIvUNGTON CAMP properties are looking  well and development is progressing- favorably  on all the. claims being- worked. On the Athel-  stan, Foreman Peterson is running- two shifts  of three men each. A new shaft is being- sunk  about 150 feet from the old one. The intention  is to make this a working- shaft, and it is expected the lead will be tapped at a depth of between sixty  and seventy feet. Ore has been run into at a depth often  feet in the new shaft, giving- g-ood assay values, but it is  the intention to continue sinking- until the lead tapped by  drifting-from the old shaft is encountered. Previous work  on this claim consisted of open cuts and a shaft 60 feet in  depth. From the shaft a drift was run 50 feet, and from  the drift sinking- was continued until the lead was tapped  at a depth of fourteen feet from the drift. Assay values  average $20 in gold to the ton.  On the Winnipeg seven men are at present employed,  five of of whom are sinking- and two are working- on an  open cut about two hundred feet from the shaft. The lead  has been tapped in the cut, the ore from which gives g-ood  assay values, in fact, equal to any yet had from the claim.  The shaft is now down over 100 feet and drifting- is being-  done from the 90-foot level.  The Golden Crown : Foreman Porter is working- six  men in the tunnel of the Golden Crown and has not yet  got through the ledge encountered about a weekago. The  tunnel is in something- over 300 feet. Work was commenced  this wee'k on the shaft, but no results will  be known for  some time to come.  *v*   *v*   ^  "A'?       11$    ;: "��AC.  IN   GREENWOOD   CAMP.  The Snowshoe : On the Snowshoe Foreman Hanna has  five men at work, running- two shifts. The shaf t ; is down  about 90 feet, and in a good body of ore, judging- from the  dump and samples coming up in the bucket. Assay values  could not be ascertained. A shaft house has been erected  on the property. The Snowshoe is under bond to R. W. Mc-  "Farlane, representing lOnglish capital.  The Brooklyn : Buildings are being erected on the  Brooklyn, under the superintendence of M. Mckean, and a  large quantity of timber is on the ground to be used in the,  shaft. Crib-work is being put in for ore dumps and foundation of buildings and everything-is being put in shape for  active operations the coming season. A boiler, steam hoist,  and all modern machinery Used in the working of a mine  will be installed in the; course of a month or six weeks,  when actual development of the mine will be commenced.  Oi,d Ironsides : The following is the report presented  by J. F. Hemenway, the superintendent of the Old Ironsides  mine, to the directors of his company while in Spokane :  " We have cut through a solid body of ore 22 feet, assaying  $25 per ton," said Mr. Hemenway. "This ore is encountered in a crosscut run from the shaft at the 100-foot level.  We have penetrated 40 feet of ledge matter, including the'  22 feet of high grade ore, and have not yet encountered the  hanging wall. The footwall is well defined, as this sample  shows." Mr. Hemenwajr exhibited a specimen of the ore  taken from a wall, almost as smooth as if it had been planed  on that side. " What do your ores carry ?" " Our assays  average $14 in g-old, five per cent, copper and $1.25 silver.  The ore is of shipping g-rade, and just as soon as the railroads come into our coimtrj' we will be prepared to ship ore  in larg-e quantities. In the meantime development work  will continue.    The   ledge   runs  in such a way that we have  only to sink a shaft to the 200-foot level and then run a  crosscut a short distance to penetrate the ledge at a depth  of 300 feet. We installed a new plant last fall, and the work  is all done with steam drills, so that sinking to the 200-foot  level and reaching the pre body at depth will not be a tedious operation. We are working two shifts of 12 men. lyast  week a new drilling machine was installed. This was-nec-  essary to avoid delays in case the machine in use required  repairs. In buildings and machinery the Old Ironsides is  one of the best equipped mines in the district. The machinery consists of a 60-horse power boiler, hoist, pump, air  compressor, arid two Rand drills, and there are two bunk  houses, a kitchen, dining room, offices and shaft house on  the property. The Knob Hill mine adjoins the Old Ironsides, and is largely owned by the same people. Tt�� will be  developed with power furnished from the Old Ironsides  plant. Machinery consisting of hoist, pump and Rand  drills have been ordered for the Knob Hill, and will soon be  installed. The compressed air will be taken by pipes from  the Ironsides arid both   claims  will  be  worked with power  from'one boiler."  a&'   $*���   *�������  <Ts.    %F     w"  =?��?  ���sji>  THE    ANACONDA   GROUP.  The Anaconda group, a half interest in which was purchased last week by T. A. Garland, from 10. A. Bielenberg-,  comprises the Anaconda, Columbia and Kootenay claims.  The Anaconda claimis situated in North Deadwood camp,  and has on it a vein of quartz and lime spar about 100 hundred feet in width, carrying copper sulphides, copper oxides  andiron pyrites and assays from $2 tb...$204.n^gold, 3 to 12 oz  in silver, and averaging 17 per cent, in copper. Ail assay  from samples taken from the claim by Mr. Woodhouse went  $12.56 in all values.    This of course was an average sample  of the ledg-e. There are five distinct ore chutes on the  claim, three of which have been uncovered and in all about  $5,000 has been expended in development work.  The Kootenay claim adjoins the Anaconda on the west,  and two distinct ore bodies have thus far been exposed. On  one of these a shaft has been sunk 20 feet, discovering- 4  .feet of solid sulphides, giving assay returns of from $2.07 to  $37.50. Four hundred feet to the west of this shaft is an  open cut tapping a body of sulphides which can be traced  for about 800 feet. Five openings have been made on this  ledge, exposing in cuts 2 and 5 large bodies of iron sulphides, carrying $4.50 in gold. No assays have been taken  from the other cuts.  The Columbia ore body is of iron sulphides about 8 feet  wide at the discovery post. The ledge has been stripped  for a distance of 12 feet, and only one assay has been, taken,  yielding $10.55 in gold. About 200 feet to the south is a  4-foot vein of dark material, carrying iron sulphides. No  assays taken. The Columbia lies to the south of the Anaconda.  South of and adjoining the Anaconda is the Forest Grove  with the same quartz and lime contact, on which a shaft 12  feet in depth has been sunk, and giving very good assay  returns.  To the south and west of the Columbia is the I^ancaster  on which a 12-foot shaft has been sunk, with the same formation and averaging assays nearly the same as the  Columbia.  South of the Ivancaster, is the Marguerite, owned by Dr.  McMartin, J. P. Harlan and F. C. Brown. This claim was  located in June,. 1895, or rather was relocated. On the Marguerite a shaft has been sunk 40 feet and two incline shafts,  one 23 feet and the other 20 feet. A crosscut has been run  15 feet from the shaft at a depth of 30 feet, discovering, a  good body of ore, similar in character and value to that in  the Mother lyode in the same camp. Adjoining and east of  the Marguerite is the Plutonia. 'ihe Fxcelsior, is situated  near the Forest Grove, Lancaster, Marguerite and Plutonia.  This claim shows the same kind of quartz ;.:s that of the  Anaconda. The vein has been stripped for about fifteen  feet, carrying- oxidized iron. Two hundred feet to the west  some copper sulphides have been exposed, but little work  has been done.  --rw-f3"  a?rs?rBnajmmw^*ff THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  BOUNDARY  CREEK M. & C. ASSOCIATION.  The regular fortnightly meeting of  the Boundary Creek Mining and Commercial association was held Wednesday evening, March 16, President  Hardy in the chair. Minutes of previous meeting read and adopted.  The following communications were  read and on motion received and filed:  Victoria, March 6, 1598.  Sir.���I am directed by the Hon. J.  H. Turner to acknowledge the receipt  of your communication of recent date,  calling his attention to the fact that  the Greenwood hospital has not heretofore received assistance from the  provincial government, and to state in  reply that the matter will be taken up  and duly considered in connection with  the estimates now being framed-  R. E. Gosnell, Secretary.  Victoria, B. C, March 7, 1898.  Dear Sir.���I have laid your petition  re Greenwood hospital before the provincial secretary and have also, interviewed other members of the government on the same subject. I feel satisfied, from what they say, that an allowance will be made,'but how much*  it is impossible for me ,to say. I will  however notify you as soon as the  estimates are down.  Donated Graham.  Ottawa, Feb. 19,1898.  My Dear Sir.���I have your letter of  the 17th instant, in which you advise  me that a resolution was passed at a  meeting of the residents of Boundary,  creek, urging the necessity of the immediate construction of railway facilities in your district, and that Mr.  Duncan Ross was appointed a delegate  to Ottawa hi connection with the  matter.    Yours faithfully,  Clifford Sieton.  Ottawa, Feb. 23, 1898.  Dear Sir.���I am in receipt of your  letter of the 7th instant, intimating  that the residents' of Greenwood City  had deputed Mr. Duncan Ross to proceed to Ottawa to urge upon the government the necessity of the immediate  construction of a railway to your town.  You may rest assured that any representations which Mr. Ross may make  will be carefully considered. Yours  failhfullv, Andr. G. Bivair.  President Hardy brought up the  niatter of redistribution for East Yale,  stating that an effort, was being made  by the people of Rossland to have a  part of this district included in the  Trail Creek district for electoral purposes.  .Mr. Galloway wTas opposed to Greenwood being included in the Trail district, and thought the association  should oppose it in every way possible,  as this district had very few interests  in common with Trail.  Mr. Black thought it would be better  to leave the electoral district of East  Yale as it now is than to have a part  included in the Rossland district. Mr.  Nelson also spoke in the same  strain.  Moved by Mr. Black, seconded by  Mr. Nelson, that a committee, composed  of Messrs. Galloway, J. H. MacFar-  larie, T. A. Garland and the secretary,  be appointed to draft resolutions in  reference to the division of East Yale  for electoral purposes, and forward  them to Donald Graham, M.-P.P., and  the government.    Carried.  Moved by Mr. Nelson, seconded b\r  Mr. McEean, that the secretary be instructed to write to the Grand Forks  Board of Trade in reference to action  taken b}r this association re redistribution, and asking for their co-operation.  Carried.  On motion   Messrs.   T.   A.   Garland,  H. B. Munroe, John H. Pallett and C.  Collins were admitted to membership.  Association then adjourned.  Boundary Valley  Lodge,  No. 38, I.O.O.F.

C, representing the California Wine Company, and  the Acetylene Gas Company, was in  town this week rustling orders.  F. B. Boone, Miss Boone, J. A. Uns-  worth and Mr. and Mrs. Glaze were  among those from Midway who attended the dance Thursday evening.  Thos. and A. Corkill, and A Hamilton came to town Monday after having  done assessment on the Idaho and  Prince claims, in Summit camp.  F. Keefer, resident representative in  this district, of the Boundary Mines  Company, left for the headquarters of  his company in New York this week.  J. M. lyloyd transferred his interests  to A. Fergurson on Thursday, one-half  in the Wild West and You No, in Dead-  wood camp, and all interest in the  Kimberly, on Pass creek.  W. J. Snodgrass, senior member of  the firm of Snodg-rass & Sons, Okanagan Falls, was in the city the past  week, trying to make arrangements  with business men for the hauling of  freight from Penticton to the Boundary Creek towns. He went over to  Grand Forks on Tuesday's stage.  C. 2S,. Shaw and party left yesterday  for Seattle camp, North Fork Kettle  river, where he is going to survey some  claims for R. Clark.  There are five dogs and sixty-seven  curs in Greenwood, but only two of  them are worth paying a $2 tax for, in  their owners' opinion, corroborated by  the tax-collector's books.  W. H. Conkle, of Midway, had the  misfortune to split the thumb of his:  left hand;with an axon Monday, while  cutting wood. The wounded hand was  dressed by Dr. Foster of the Greenwood hospital.  J. F. Hemenway, superintendent 'of  the Old Ironsides mine in Greenwood  camp, was taken to the Greenwood  hospital on Tuesday last suffering  from an attack of fever. No serious  results are anticipated.  The entertainment given by the  Greenwood Dramatic Club on Wednesday evening-, at Midway, was fairly  well attended. A banquet was held at  the L/ancanshire House after the entertainment. Those not attending the  banquet, enjoyed themselves in dancing; .    . -.'  .. '   ���"'<'.'  . ��� ��  G. W. Rumberger, of Greenwood  campj returned on Sunday from Spqk-  kane, where he had gone on business  connected, with the bonding of the  Brooklyn claim. He states that very-  great interest is taken in tne Boundary  creek district by ���trie people of Spokane.  On the Bruce claim, Ingrim mountain, near Midway, the tunnel is now  in about 125 feet, and the miners work-c  ing on the claim think they have struck  the foot wall. The rock they are working on is well mineralized. It is expected the ledge will be tapped by  about 15 feet more work.  The Japanese, Jetsua Miyakami,  committdd for trial by Police Magistrate Hallett, for fbrg-ery and stealing',  came up before , County Court Judge  Spinks on Friday, last, under the  Speedy trials act, and was sentenced to  three years, on the charge of forgery,  and one on the charge of stealing a  pin.  R. Iy. Evans, Greenwood, has been  appointed agent in this district for  Newling & Co., of Nelson, B. C, who  represent the Niagara Falls Acetylene  gas company in British Columbia.  Mr. E}vans will give an exhibition of  the new; light shortly, and will be prepared to furnish to business places and  private houses at a much less cost than  the present method.  A munificent offer to take up one  column of space in The Times for the  sum of $4 for 6 insertions, has arrived  at this office from Hamburg, Germany,  and, unfortunately, must be declined '  by the management for several reasons, the most important of which is  that The Times would not wish to  withdraw so   much currency from cir  culation in Hamburg at one time.

City; Clerk reported collections as  follows : Licenses, $727.50 ; road tax,  $100 ; dog tax, $4.    Total, $831.50.  Considerable discussion took place in  regard to'the best manner of collecting  the dog tax, and whether it would be  advisable for the city to furnish collars  and tags or not. Also as to whether  owners could be compelled to decorate  their dogs with collars and tags furnished by the city. It was finally moved  by Aid. Galloway, seconded by Aid.  -Kerr, that clerk be instructed to confer with city solicitor and adopt such  means as the law would allow to enforce the collection of the dog tax.  Carried.  Aid. Galloway brought up the matter of proposed waterworks and street  improvements, and suggested that city  engineer be instructed to prepare plans  and make estimates of cost of work to  be done on each street, so that the city  would be ready to proceed with work  by contract or otherwise so soon as the  money . was available, and also that  pipe should be ordered as soon as possible, for the waterworks in order that  the system would be completed at an  early a date.  Aid. Parry suggested that work of  grading be commenced on Greenwood  street near the hospital.  Aid. Phalen understood that city  engineer had been instructed to prepare plans and make estimates of cost,  and suggested that pipe should be  bought at once subject to approval of  council.  Moved by Aid. Phelan, seconded by  Aid. Parry, that city engineer be instructed to prepare estimates of cost of  grading each street, and submit same  to council at his earliest convenience.  Carried.  The Board of Works, composed of  Aid. Galloway, Barrett and Kerr were  appointed a committee, to attend to  the proposed improvements, with Aid.  Galloway as chairman.

Hitherto the people in British Columbia have taken so  little interest in the selection of candidates, by convention, that the legislation of the province has been placed in  the hands of an irresponsible, and corrupt clique in Victoria, whose only aim  has been to bleed the people in. every  conceivable way, until the greater part  of the lands and coal in the province is  in the hands of railway corporations,  charter-mongers and ward heelers.  SUBSCRIPTION,  $2.00 -EEK   YEAR,   IN   ADVANCE.  SATURDAY,  MARCH 19, 1898.   '.., '  NOTES..        ..  The Vernon News appeared last week  without Editor McKelvie'sname at the  mast-head ; its tone was also distinctly  in opposition to the provincial government's policy.  Whatever'the, outcome of the rail-  Way legislation at Ottawa may be, the  thanks of the people of this district are  due to Hewitt Bostock, M. P., for his  untiring- efforts in favor of .the" Corbin"  ���charter and legislation' beneficial to  ���the Boundary-Creek country.-'.  An   effort   is   being-   made   by   the  people of Rossland to  have   a part of  East Yale joined to   Trail   district   for  electoral   purposes.    This   would place  the people'��of 'Boundary   district   in." a  much worse   position than at present.  The Mining-, and  Commercial  associa- :  tion  took   the   matter   up   at  the  last  meeting-, and   have   forwarded  strong-,  resolutions to Victoria in opposition to  the proposal.    So far as the people of  Boundary   are   concerned   they   mig-ht  just as well form a part of the electoral  district of North Victoria as  of   Trail.  The  interests   of   the  districts are as  'nearly    identical.    There   are   a  sufficient number of voters in this district,  south of Penticton, to entitle the people  to a representative, and tacking- us on  to  another   district   would   be   a   very  great injustice.  Some time along- about May or June  the electors of this district will find  themselves looking around for a candidate to represent them in the provincial leg-islature, without any previous  org-anization and without a convention  being- called. Then the usual mode of  procedure in this province will be  resorted to. Some individual, with  more g-all than his neig-hbors, will announce to the electors that he is a candidate ; some other fellow, with an  equal amount of nerve, will announce  himself in opposition to candidate No.  1, and the electors will have no   choice  " If rs announced from Ottawa  that  Mr. D. G. Fraser is an aspirant for the  B. C. judgeship.'    What claim Mr.,; Fra-  sier has on the office we   are   unable to  learn.    He is neither a  member of the  local Bar nor a  resident  of  the  Province.    At the  time that  this Province  went into  confederation,   one   of   the  unwritten terms of  union was that all  vacancies on the Bench should be filled  from the Bar of the Province.    This is  as it should be and we hope no consideration will be g-iven  to  outside aspirants.    The Bar of British   Columbia is  composed of the   proper   material   for  making judges."    The  foregoing quotation is from the Nation, a new Victoria publication.    Whenever a   vacancy-  occurs on the British   Columbia'bench,  a parag-raph similar to the one quoted,  goes the rounds of the provincial press,  and the result is that a feeling- is raised against the best  possible   material  for the position.    It certainlj* would be  better   if   vacancies on the   provincial  bench were filled by   men   from   some  other province.    It'would do away with  the suspicion of  prejudice  and unfairness that is very prevalent in reg-ard to  some of-the British   Columbia  judg-es.  Where there is so   much  talk,  there is  ver3r probably some foundation for the  utterances   in   reg-ard   to   actions     of  judges.    Whatever the local prejudices  may be in regard  to   eastern   importations for   the B. C. bench, it is .hardly  likely that a lawyer of repute in any of  the eastern   provinces could be   named  for the bench, who could be induced to  " buck " a nickel-in-the-slot g-anie in a  public place; it is hardly possible   that  an appointee from the   bar of Ontario,  for instance, would enter   into   a game  of " draw poker "   in   a.   way-side   inn.  He would have respect for the position  in which he was placed, if not for himself.    The cry of   British Columbia for  the British Columbians is becoming too  narrow and too " thin " for the population.    There   is   always   some   axe to  grind  behind   such   a   cry.    It   might  have   done   service   twenty,   or   even  1en years ago.    It won't do now.    The  question    as   to   where   the appointee  conies from, is not of so much   importance to the public as that of his ability  and integrity, and   the   people   of the  province will respect the occupant of a  position  on   the   bench   who   respects  himself.  nThe C. P. R. survey party passed  through'the city Tuesday making- the  permanent location for the railway.  H.   HALLETT,  QKdm0ter, Jioftctiot,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  GREENWOOD,   B.C.  p-ORBES   M.

I made a statement in court that  Murphy was under the influence of  liquor when he did the cutting, but  not when he entered the house. I believed I had been illegally fined by  the magistrates, and appealed. The  finding of the jury on the 10th inst.  proved my opinion to be correct. I  always understood that in reports of  court proceedings the newspaper should  give facts, and not the sentiments or  opinions of its editor.

The following- report of the cases  ag-ainst the Donald Bros., of Camp  McKinney, before R. G. Sidley, J. P.,  and Herirj^ Nicholson, J. P., was received too late for publication in last  issue :  McMynn v. Frank Donald.���The accused was charged with having supplied, on January 1st, liquor to an intoxicated person. A good deal of contradictory evidence was given, but the  court held that the charge was proven,  and imposed a fine of $20 and $9.50  costs.  McMynn v. Frank Donald.���The accused was charged with selling liquor  to H. Douglas on Sunday, 6th February. There was no proof that Frank  Donald had done so, but there was evidence that the liquor had been sold by  his ag-ent. In this case the line was  fixed at $20 and $9.50 costs. The court  remarked that the ' fine would have  been greater were they not satisfied  that all the cases were instigated by  malice.  Regina v.'Frank Donald and Thomas  Donald.���In this case the defendants  were charged with keeping a betting  house. The only evidence given was  that of George Bennett, who swore that  a game of cards Avas played in which a  person bet his hand against the rest of  the players. As the magistrates considered there was no evidence to support the charge, the case was>dismissed  and the following wriileri judgment  read by the court: ���-. ,'  Camp McKinney, B. C. March 5.  Regina v. Frank Donald and Thos.  Donald.���In this case the defendants  were charged with keeping a disorderly  hpuse, b3r keeping a room in which  gambling was g-oing- on for gain. Now,  to come within the statute, it must be  kept for the purpose specified, and this  had not���been shown. It ���must be a  principal and essential part and not  merely subsidiary and for the recreation of the guests. All the enactments  against gambling are for the purpose  of preventing divers idle and evil-  disposed persons from congregating  together and plajdng for excessive  sums of money. If the guests of an  inn call for dice or cards, and for their  recreation plajr with them, it is not  against the statutes. A gaming- house  is a nuisance at common law, being  detrimental to the public, as it promotes cheating and other corrupt  practices, and incites to idleness and  avaricious wa}rs of gaining property.  To make an hotel keeper liable for  keeping a gaming" house, it must be  shown that he makes a gain by it or  that he allows cheating to go on or excessive sums of money to be plaj'ed  for. As none of these things have  been proven, the case is dismissed.  R. G. Sidley, J. P.   .. "���.  Henry Nicholson, J. P.  A Newspaper for Republic Camp.

','-.'������ [Toronto Globe.]  The natural desire of- the  Canadian  Pacific Railway  for   an   extension  of  the Crow's Nest Pass  line  from  Robson westward, finally to the coast by a  connection at Hope,   has  been  quickened by the proposal of  Mr. D. C. Corbin to extend a line into the  Boundary  Creek district.    Mr.   Corbin .owns  the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard   Railway,���a  -continuation of his line irom   Spokane  to   the   Canadian   boundary   at   Fort  Sheppard*   from   which  point it  runs  northward to Nelson, about 60 miles in  Canadian territory.    From Northport,  which is south of the boundary, he has  a branch running-, to Rossland, and he  proposes to  build  without subsidy  or  land grant about 100 miles  of railway  into the Boundary Creek  district.    As  originally   proposed,   this   line  would  run from Marcus, near the junction of  the Columbia and Kettle rivers, about  .38 miles  south  of the  Boundary, and  would be almost entirely in  American  territory.    It would  branch  froni  Mr.  Corbin's main line south of Northport,  where the smelter is located.    Some of  the petitions  presented  to  parliament  asking that the charter be  granted for  sl railway to the  Boundary  Creek  district,  along  the  Kettle  River  valley,  request that  a  clause  be  inserted  to  prevent discriminating  rates on ore in  favor  of   smelters   on   the  American  side.    Not only the rates but the route  of this line may be made quite as favorable  to   the' smelting   industry   and  trade of the Dominion as the  proposed  extension of the Canadian Pacific into  the   same   district,   and  Mr.   Corbin's  willingness to build without public aid  puts the  Dominion   government  in   a  favorable position. - It has dawned on  the people of   Canada   that   they   have  been   altogether  too  generous  in  the  matter of aid to   railway builders.    As  long as the people are willing to  pay,  it is natural that the   railways  should  be in a state of  want.    But  the  more  generous the subsidies  the  greater  is  the   temptation   tq   load   up  railways  with unnecessary capital   and   bonded  indebtedness, and to launch them with  burdens which they can scarcely carry.  The great majority of  the railways on  ; this   continent,   if built   on   business  principles and without the:construction ���  company   operations    which     tend   to  over-indebtedness,  could   be    run   on  business principles.    The returns  for  the services rendered would  pay a fair  profit on the outlay.    But the methods  by which subsidies leak away and   the  cost of construction is augmented, are  responsible for the belief that a public  subvention is essential   to   every   railway enterprise.  The Canadian Pacific Railway is in  a good financial condition. It has been ������  paying 5 per cent, per annum on stock,  some of which was issued at 25 per  cent. For a comparatively new road  with a long section through unprofitable territory to pay 5, 10 and 20 per  cent. on the money actually invested,  is an evidence of the profitable nature  of railroad business. The subsidies  given for the construction of the Crow's  Nest Pass line were  liberal,   and it is  unfortunate that they were  not  made  conditional   on   the   surrender  of  the  company's immunity  from  control   in  the matter of freight rates.    The  proposed extension to the Boundary Creek  district will be a profitable piece of line  arid the  Company  have   abundant resources to construct it.      Mr. Corbin is  prepared to construct the line and look  for  his  remuneration   in   the  returns  from its traffic.     That  should  be  the  financial basis of all railway construction,' as  of  every  other   useful  enterprise.    The C.P.R. should do the same  or leave the field to more  enterprising  rivals.    The j)roposed extension would  be at least as profitable to the Canadian  Pacific ��� as   to   the   Spokane   Falls    &  Northern, and as a link in   a   southern  connection to Hope  and Vancouver it  would be   infinitely   more   valuable  to  the great Canadian line.    There is no  valid excuse  for  soliciting a  subsid3r  for the construction of this line.    That  it will be  a  profitable  undertaking is  shown by the willingness of  Mr.   Corbin to build it without aid;    Canadians  have passed the  stage  in  which  they >  would  pajr a private  corporation  for  embarking  in   a   profitable   business,  especially when  there  is  competition  on the basis of  purety  private   enterprise.    This holds g-ood with regard to  the  entire  southern extension  of  the  C.P.R. to Hope.    The  construction  of  that line will be in   itself  profitable to  the   company,   and   there   can   be 'no,  g-rounds for dependence on public   aid.  The people of the Boundary Creek clis- ,  trict want a railwa3r service now. Thejr  have plenty of ore lying at   the  mines  ready for shipment! It would be more  satisfactory for them to secure a ^service by Canadian enterprise ; but as a  profitable traffic is awaiting the railway, it will undoubtedly be built,  even if Canadian enterprise fails.  The C.P.R. Co. control the charier of  the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern,  under which thejr can proceed at once  with the construction of the line, and  as that charter carries a provincial  land grant, the work should be soon  under way. With regard to the merits  of the rivals, it is evident that Mr.  Corbin will be as eager to divert the  traffic of the district to the S. F. & N.  as the C.P.R. would be to keep the  business along their own line. An extension by the C.P.R. would be more  profitable to Canadian merchants and  others within reach of the mining-  trade ; but the balance of advantage is  not sufficient to justify the subsidizing-  of a profitable enterprise.

I  ��� ���  ��i   ;'j  OUNDARY   CREEK   TIMESv  NOTES   FROM   OTTAWA.  [SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE.]  Ottawa, March 6th T���The fate of  the Kettle River Valley Railway Company's bill will be decided this week.  The railway committee has been organized with Mr. James Sutherland, the  popular Eiberal whip as chairman.  The first meeting'" of the committee for  the transaction of business will be held  on Tuesday next. Thanks to Mr. Bo-  stock who is nothing if not accommodating, the Kettle River railway bill  is near the head of the list and will  receive early consideration.  Matters are more hopeful than when  I wrote my previous letter. The concensus of opinion among the members  is that the bill should not be defeated.  Since the construction of the railway  does not entail any cost Upon the  country, and since the people  who are most- directly interested  are unanimously in favor of the road,  the members outside of the one or two  who have axes to grind are in favor of  the bill. This does not by any 'means  mean that the bill will pass. Politics  often force a" member to act and vote  against his convictions. It is often a  question of what ."my'- leader says "  not "what is right." " If the government says its a good thing, we will  push it along " says the faithful liberal  and the loyal conservative takes his  instructions from Sir Charles  Tupper.  The necessity for having the support  of the government  is  therefore appar-.  ent.    Those interested in   the  passage  of the bill directed their forces towards  getting an expression of approval from  the government.    In   this   they   were  ably assisted by Senator Templeman,  of Victoria, who is broadriiinded enough  not to be swrayed  by  the selfish, short  sighted  course  of  the boards of trade  of   Victoria    and    Vancouver.    Those  bodies   have   no   influence   excepting  where they are not known   and  consequently while their  views  could have  no  weight  on  the Coast, they will receive some slight consideration   at Ottawa.    The   action     of    the   Victoria  Board was inspired by Joshua  Davies  who has a  personal quarrel  with  Mr.  Corbin   and who  is   evidently   of the  opinion that   revenge  is   better   than  public interest.    Senator'  Templeman  went carefully into the question of the  Kettle River Valley  railway and having satisfied himself that the construction of the road would not  only  be invaluable  to  the  Boundary  Creek district   but   would also  give a competitive road to the  Coast  to  wholesalers  having business in the district, he saw  Sir Wilfrid Eaurier and  learned from  him that the  government  had  no objection   to   the  passage  of  the     bill.  There the matter rests and as soon  as  the result is known I will   telegraph to  Greenwood.  Richard Armstrong, the Grand Forks  delegate is doing good~> work. He is  acquainted with man}' of the members  and being an affable, intelligent  gentleman, he soon convinces them  that our cause is a righteous one.  Mr. J. C. Haas, M. E., of Greenwood  was in Ottawa for a few days.- I regretted  that  he  was unable to remain  here but he rendered good service to  the district by leaving with me letters  for Hon. G. E. Foster, his mining partner. Mr. Foster is a leader on the conservative side of the house and it was  of the greatest importance that we  should have,his support.  Sir Charles Tupper is also with us  and Ruf us, Pope, M. P., one of the  principal shareholders in the Old Ironsides Company is doing good  service.  Eobbying a bill is no pleasant occupation, particularly when the majority of the members know little and care  less of the requirements of the district.  They are courteous enough to listen to  one's story but when the)r ask one  ." Where is Boundary Creek ? Are there  any mines there ? Is it in Rossland ?  Is it up near Teslin Eake? Is this  another. Yukon scheme ?"���one feels  tempted to give up in disgust and rail  about the limited knowledge the average eastern member knows about distant portions of the Dominion.  I found the Coryell's maps of-the  greatest service and everyone is anxious to secure a copy.  As Others See Us.  The Inland Printer, the highest authority oil printing and the allied  trades in the United, States, has the  following in.its March issue :  " Boundary Creek Times, Greenwood, B.C. (100 miles from a railroad) :  While a railroad is not usually considered a necessary adjunct to the publishing- of a newspaper,'the man who  conducts one in a town so isolated is  looked upon as w,orking at a disadvantage. The news columns of The  Times might be better filled if a railroad was near at hand, but the mechanical execution could be but little im-  proved, and to the very absence of a  railroad mig-ht be; credited the fact  that eleven of the sixteen pages are  advertising-���mostly local. Nearly all  of the ad. display is good.    .    .    ."  Off for Omineca.  E. A. Bielenberg, John Dunn and  James Steel, left on Wednesday. for  the coast, where Messrs. Dunn and  Steel will outfit for the Omenica country, taking the overland route by Ash-  croft and Quesnelle Forks. They expect to be gone two years, and will  prospect for leads as well as placer  ground.
