During the past year considerable interest has been taken  in the country lying between the West  Fork  and  the main  Kettle river and a large number of  mineral  locations have  been made in this  territory.    At  present  the claims most  talked about are those located  in Canyon  Creek, a stream  entering the Kettle river 35 miles above the mouth of  Rock  Creek, and running nearly parallel to the  river.    The Canyon creek camp includes those claims located on Cedar creek,  a stream entering the Kettle river 8 miles below the mouth of  Canyon creek.    Over one hundred and fifty claims have been  recorded from this camp and   considerable   work has been  done  on   a   larg-e   number   of    them.    The   formation   is  quartzite and granite, and the ledges are  quartz,  canning  large gold values.    Among- the claims being worked the following may be mentioned :    The Colorado, owned by  Sullivan and Waddell, on which a 60-foot tunnel has been run to  tap the ledge.    Good assays have been  had  from   average  samples in the claim.    On the Robin   Hood   and   Florence  May, two properties owned by W. Guttridge, who has  been  carrying on development work during the winter, a good ore  body has been shown up, the assays   running high in   both  gold and copper.    About 40 feet of an open cut has been run  on the Silver Dollar, a propertj-- bonded for $35,000 last fall,  on a six and twelve months' bond.    This claim  gives  very  high values in gold, and has a large showing on the surface.  Mr. Peterson, one of the owners of the claim, went up last  week   to  commence  work on  the  property.    Several deals  have  lately   been   made   for Canyon   creek  properties by  parties representing English cajrital.    Chinese are working  placer ground on Cedar   creek,    and are apparently taking  out considerable gold.    At present there is about three  feet  of snow at the camp, and it will be near   the  end  of  April  before^there is good feed for horses.    From the mouth of the  West Fork, in following up the main Kettle river, the direction is north and east to Canyon creek.    From  Greenwood,  following the windings of the river,   the  distance  is about  55 miles, although Canyon creek camp is actually less than  25 miles from this city.    The Commercial   Club should take  some action towards making a trail to this camp.    A bridg-e  is also needed across the West  Fork  near  where it empties  into the main river.    At the mouth of Cedar creek,  Ed Sullivan is putting up a stopping place, for the accommodation  of those coming and going in and out of  the  Canyon creek  ���camp.   . ' ,","���' ���' ���'���.''���  On the West Fork of Kettle river much niore prospecting  has been done than on the main river. Ther West Fork  enters the Kettle river, 9 miles above the mouth of Rock  creek. The formation is similar to that of Canyon creek.  Among the claims on which development work has been  ',done'are: Carmi and Butcher Boy, owned by James Kerr  and J. C. Dale. These claims were located in August, 1896,  and are situated about 30.���.���miles from the mouth of the  stream. On the Carmi a tunnel has been run 28 feet, and a  shaft ten feet has been sunk from the tunnel, The character of the ore is similar to that of the Cariboo in Camp McKinney, carrying gold and silver, the gold values being  about 3 to 1 in silver. The Sallie owned by Wood and Felto  is five miles below the Carmi.    Assays from the pay streak  i ��� - . . .  on'this claim   have   given   a value of   $300 in silver.    The  Bell and Highland Iyass, located in 1897, and owned by Alex  Wallace and John Bell, give in all values  about $35.    The  Arlington, formerly the Headlight, the  property of P. Hel-  stab, has a shaft down 35  feet,   and  carries values in gold;  silver and copper, assays, in the clatter going from   15   to. 18  per cent.    The Arlington is 7 miles above the Carmi.    King  Solomon owned by Chadler and Olson and on which considerable work in the form of open <-.uts has been done on both  ledges on this property, also a shaft 14 feet.    Assay  values  in gold, silver and copper, amount  to $71.    The Black Diamond owned by the same parties, gives   an   average  assay  of $28.70 in silver and lead.    On   the Queen of  Sheba, also  the property of Chadler and Olson, no work has been done.  The  Messenger brothers  have   located  two  claims about  two miles west of and   supposed   to   be on the same lead as  the Carmi.    The Paymaster loci ted in 1896,   by  J. C.Haas  and J. C. Dale ; the Klondyke, 1-xated by  Jas.   Fisher, and  the Highland Chief, located in IS )5, by W. Harris,   of Fair-  view, are also good claims and will average  up  with  those  already enumerated.'   Tom Currie has  located  a group of  five claims at the Meadows, two of which, the Old Hickory  and Iron Horse, have good showings.    On the latter there  is   a  10-foot   shaft.    Dan. Stuar*':   and R. Wood  located the  Rob Roy in 1897.    It is on the lv.i d of the Bell.    Rube Wells  and Jim Green have located thr-'-c* claims near the Meadows,  on two of which assessment work has been done.    J. Wheat-  ley and R. Wilkins located the   Iron   Mask, Mountain   Bell  and  Hill  Top  last  year.    On   t lese claims   there are very  large showings.    Altogether the West   Fork   and   Canyon  creek camps give promise of producing- a number   of mines,  if surface showings and assays ure indications of a mineral  region.    It is very necessary th.V. a   bridge   should be  built  by the government across the W-jst Fork of the Kettle river  and that a small   amount   of hk ney���say  $600���should   be  appropriated to building and improving trails.    This   matter will   be   brought to  the   knowledge of the government  by Mayor Wood while in Victoria, and it is to be hoped that  the necessary appropriation  wil"-   be   included  in  the  estimates.  I THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  G. 1^. Thomet has struck a good body  of ore in the Big- Windy, Summit  Camp.  Rev. Father Rivers will celebrate  mass in Rendell & Co's hall, Greenwood, Sunday morning- at 10 o'clock.  On Tuesday the ledg-e on the Golden  Crown, Wellington camp, was struck  in the tunnel at about 300 feet.  J. Winkle who has been working on  the Rover, near Boundary Falls, was  compelled to quit work last week, owing to blood poisoning in his hand.  W. Hanna, foreman of the Snowshoe  Greenwood camp, was in the city Wednesday morning, and stated that work  had been resumed in the shaft on that  claim.  B.Edwards is< erecting a building on  Copper street, next to Frazee's store.,  Part of the building will be used for a  photograph g-allery and the balance  will be for rent.  C. P. R. Eng-ineer Tye, who has  charge of the location work on the  Heinze charter, was in the city Saturday. After inspecting the work done  he proceeded east.  a   ��� ���   ���  ThdsT Hog-an received a. severe cut in  his right hand this week. While engaged moving a building he slipped,  and his hand came in contact with a  broken bottle, causing a severe wound.  At the meeting- of, the council Monday evening the clerk was instructed to  furnish report of collections at next  regular nieeting, and also names of  those in arrears for trade licenses, etc.  Work is being- pushed on the CO.  D., Lyong- L/ake camp, on which the  shaft is now down 45 feet. The C. O.  D. lies between the W. J. Bryan and  6. K., and is under bond to R. W. Mc-  Farlane. ^ The ledg-e is about 4 feet in  width, andvis of gold bearing quartz.  A certificate of assay has just been  received from the L,e Roi smelter at  Northport on the shipment of Winnipeg  ore which was made a short time ag-o.  The certificate is dated February 24th,  and reads as follows : Gold,,,3.60 ozs.  per ton, value $74.50 ; silver, 80-100 oz.,  value 45c. ; total value per ton,  $74.95.  W. Guttridge, one of the principal  mine owners on Canyon creek was in  the city on business the beginning-of  this week. He reports the prospects  for that camp to be very promising and  expects a large amount of work to be  done there this season. Mr. Guttridge  left on Tuesday's stage for his properties.  The men working* on  Lyong Ivake camp g-ot  jparty Friday evening and made a call  on those at the Enterprise and Anchor  cabins. A pleasant evening- was spent  in songs, recitations, speeches, etc.  Those taking- part in the entertainment were Captain Shields, W. Gibson,  R. Thomas, and W. J. Barker.  On the Sunrise and Sunset, two  claims.near Central camp on the reservation and owned by T. McAule}' and  C. J. L/imdy of Midway, a large amount  of work has been done, amounting in  all'to about $1,000. The claims adjoin  the Washington, and there is ever_v  indication that the Washington and  L/one Star leads run through, both  claims. On the Sunset there is a 45-  foot shaft and on the Sunrise a shaft  .35-feet in depth, besides a large amount  the   Jewel   in  up a   surprise  of prospect work. The ledge averages  from $8 to $12 in gold.  - G. C. Hodg-e, district superintendent  of the Vernon and Nelson Telephone  company, was in the city Wednesday  and Thursday on business connected  with his conipany.  It is reported that the B. A. company has bonded the Pathfinder claim,  North Fork Kettle river, for $90,000  and 60,000 shares of stock in the com-  pany, and a force of 14 men have  been put to work on the property.  J. C.Dale and N. Gottfreidsen are  doing- assessment work ori the Combination in Smith's camp. This was one  of the first claims located in the district and considerable work has been  done on the property, four shafts having- been sunk on it. Assay values  run from $5 to $28 in gold, and  some silver. This claim adjoins the  Boundary Falls, a property on which  there was a small, stamp mill some  years,ag-o.  The Columbia Flouring Mill Co., as  annoiiced in our advertising- columns,  have had their mill thoroughly overhauled equipping- it with the best appliances known to modern milling- science^  their object being- to possess the finest  mill in British Columbia, and to produce flour of such a quality as to be  beyond the reach of competition.  Messrs. Rendell & Co., of this city have  been appointed sole agents for the  Boundary Creek district.  A note has been received at this  office to the effect that the I. O. O.

An adjourned meeting of the city  council was held at the residence of  Aid. Barrett on Thursday evening, for'  the purpose of receiving report of the  city engineer on proposed street improvements. Acting-Mayor Barrett in  the'chair. Present, Aid. Parry, Galloway and Phelan.  City   Engineer   Shaw   had   not yet  got his report in shape for presentation  to the council, but would place  a written statement in the hands of the aldermen Monday  morning.    However,   he  made a statement to the aldermen  embodying- the principal   features of the  report.    The   leveling-    had   all   been  done, but plans were not finished.    He  considered $14,000 would  be more than  sufficient   for  the   proposed   improvements.    The    work     on   Government  street would be the most expensive, the  probable cost being about $2,500.    The  deepest center cut on this  street would  be 6 feet,   the side   cuts   running-  to 9  feet, and the heaviest  grade  would be  8 per cent.    No rock  was  likely to be  encountered.    The      heaviest      grade  would  be on  Greenwood  street,  from  the bridge to the hospital, about 10 per  cent.    The following are the streets on,  -which work   is  proposed  to  be  done :  Wellington street,   from Dundee street  to   creek.    Gold,   from   Wellington  to  creek.    Silyer, from Wellington  to intersection of Deadwood.    Copper, from  Wellington   to   creek.    Dundee,   from  intersection of  Silver to Government.  Government,   from  Dundee north,   including what is known as  the swamp.  Center,   from  Government  to Copper.  Greenwood from hospital to the  creek.  Deadwood from Eong Eake to the creek  Short   street   and   Eong   lake  street.  Skylark, from Deadwood to foot of hill.  The city eng-iueer promised to   furnish each of the aldermen with a detail  of the work to  be done, Monday morning, so that electors could see plans before voting.  Council then adjourned.  Hotel Arrivals.  The following were the arrivals at  the International hotel during the  week :  C. Cummings, John Carter, Republic, Wash.; W. F. Tye, E. M. Rice,  Rossland; E. ��� Woodruff, Eoomiston,  Wash.; J. F. Hemenway, Ole Olson,  Old Ironsides ; G. B. Breslauer, Geo.  R. Naden, Rev. T. C. Guy, City ; Martin McGrath, R. Munhoy, John A.

An informal discussion at the meeting of the city council Thursday evening, in' reference to the manner in  which money was to be expended, by  contract or by day labor, in the event  of by laws receiving the sanction of  the electors, brought out many arguments for and against cit}*- work being-  done by "contract. One of the most important questions raised was :���" " Could  the City save contractor's profits by  putting the work in charge of a practical man andn have it done by day  labor?" This is a question that should  be thoroughly discussed bj-- the city  aldermen. Even if the "cost were as  large, would not the results be more  beneficial to the city if the work were  done by daj-- labor.,, Glasgow, the best  governed city in the world, we think  does all city work bj*- day labor.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  W. T. Smith is on a business trip to  Spokane.  H. B. Munroe, made a business trip  to Grand Prairie on Tuesday.  J. A. Unsworth and J. O. Thompson  of Midway were in the city Sunday.  Mrs. and Miss Eena Roth left for  Spokane on Thursday morning's stage.  Mrs. Coryell of Midway has been  visiting acquaintances in the city the  past week.  W. S. Fletcher left Wednesday for  his pre-emption at the niouth of Canyon creek. -s-  C. J. Eundy of H'ain & Co., Midway,  passed through the city Monday on a  business trip.  T. McAuley, J. M. Mitchell and J.  Jackson of Midway, were visitors to  the city Tuesday.  Mrs. A. Eeamy, returned on Wednesday's stage from the coast, where  she has spent the winter.  Chas. Gire, consulting- engineer of  the French syndicate operating in Central camp, was in the city Friday.  C. y33. Shaw, C. E-, leaves for Eong  Eake camp, on Monday, where he will  survey the Anchor and Enterprise  claims.  Word has been received in the city  that Mrs. Tynan, formerly of Greenwood, and a sister of Mrs. W. Nelson,  is ver3r ill in Spokane.  E. G. Davis, one of the owners of the  Rambler, returned this week from  Pass creek, where he had been doing  assessment work on the Solace and  Everett.  NOTES.  The subject of discourse by Rev. T.  C. Guy on Sunday evening- will be  "Rest."  On the Surprise claim, opposite Nelson, Wash., crosscutting is being done  at the 100-foot level to locate the haiiir-  ing wall.  One very often hears the statement  made that there is not enough money  in circulation in the district. Perhaps  not. If the people who send their cash  to department stores in the east and  run their jaw with the local merchants,  would reverse the order of things, the  circulating medium would become  quite plentiful.    Fully $10,000  is sent  annually front this district to eastern  department stores. None of this ever  conies back to the district. If this,  amount were spent with local merchants, the profits would remain in the  district and assist in developing the  country.  The voting on the waterworks and  street improvement by-laws will take  place on Monda3>-. Plans of proposed  street improvements will be in the  hands of city aldermen Monday morning, so that all may know just what  the3r are voting for.  Henry George returned from Fair-  view Wednesday, and states that work  Was to have been commenced on the  Tin Horn the 1st of the mouth. On  the Stemwinder, which is down about  80, feet, a rich strike has been made at  the bottom of the shaft, carrying considerable free gold. The Smuggler is  also looking well.  There is considerable discussion in  official circles as to whether the province or city has charge of the Japanese  committed for trial last Monday. Constable Gardom of Midwa3r wrote Officer Eawder of Greenwood that the Jap  should be taken to Midway at once.  Officer Eawder wrote Officer Gardom  that it would be just as well to keep  prisoner here as he had sonie wood that  needed sawing. Then the question of  responsibility of city and province  came up. The police magistrate and  city solicitor holding- that responsibility  rests with province after commital to  common jail. The city constable and  Officer Eawder hold that Greenwood  lock-up is not a common jail, as the  Jap being the only prisoner committed  here, the j)lace must necessarily be a  select jail and not a common one. Still  the Jap saws wood.  ���A  ^0  <&��� AT~^>  c  Books, Stationery, Wall. Paper, Fancy  Goods and Notions,  GREENWOOD  B.

THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK    TIMES.  .1$ <;  MIDWAY NOTES.  Prof. Boice has started a dancing  school .here.  Mr. W. Powers returned from a  business trip to Kelowha and Vernon  Sunday last.  Freight frcfrn Penticton is moving  again slowly, D. Gillis having come  in with a load for Hai.n & Co.  Mr. Thomas, from Myers' creek, is a  visitor to Midway on business. * He is  superintendent of a mining property  on Myers' creek, under lease to an  Ohio company.  The dance given last Saturday in  McNicol's hall was a great success.  Everybody had a good time and it is  hoped that these Saturday reunions  will be kept up in the future.  Mr. Elliott, from the reservation,  was a visitor in Midway last Monday.  He is interested in mining property in  the Boundary Creek district and has a  number of claims under bond.  There are good reports coming in  from Torodo creek, rich strikes having  been made lately. Mr. A. Galloway,  who is interested in properties there,  claims assays up to $200 to the ton.  EUREKA   ITEMS.  Republic, or as it is better known,  Eureka camp ,ron the reservation is  quite a thriving town. There are four  grocery stores^ one drug store, a 25  cent restaurant, two livery barns and  a couple of cigar stores in the town.  The Republic mine is working 125  men on the sawmill and stamp mill,  the Blackball is working 10 men, the  San Poil 12, the Mountain L/ion and  Tom Thumb. 6/ These mines will  shortly put on more men. The Belle,  Jumbo arid ^Lakeside commence work  this week. Many of the properties are  doing their assessment work.  Torodo creek bids fair to become a  rival to Eureka, and this summer will  show wonderful mines.  The snow has again commenced to  fall and now lies on the ground at a  depth of about five inches. A week  ago the hills were bare, and the fall of  snow is a great disappointment to  prospectors.  The Republic is shipping ore right  along, their returns from their first  carload going $103 to the ton.  It has been a hard matter to get  freight in here, on account of transfers  from sleighs to wagons.  It does not look as if the new road  from here to Kettle Falls will ever be  finished. There is difficulty about  wages due men on the work.  The club rooms appear to be doing  quite a business. In one the other  day, after a run of 8 hours the percentage on a stud poker game was $60, but  of course some of the players .were  drunk and of course were " bled."  A small newspaper and job printing  plant is much needed here, as the one  at Nelson does   not   do   the camp any  g-ood.  Tourist.  Eureka, Feb. 27, 1898.  Work has again been started on the  Comstock mine, on the reservation.  The Comstock is situated near the  Washington, and is considered one of  the best properties on the   reservation.

The ag-itation for an outlet in the"Bo.undary  Creek counttw still continues.   It is but natural  to suppose, that so rich a section of countrv  as  that  is in its undeveloped resources should  be  anxious to have  modern   facilities  whereb3' to  reach the markets  of  the world.   We observe  that there is an ag-itation on foot, and  that it  has assumed formidable proportions, as  a bill  has been introduced  into the House of Commons where it received its first reading-, looking-  to the construction of a  railwa3' from Marcus  into the Kettle River district, which is believed  to be a yery rich one in  agricultural,, pastoral  and mineral lands.   The promoters of the road  are Americans, and their object  is to divert a  trade which naturally-- belong-s to Canadians in  the East, as well as in the West, into American  channels.    For this  the3r  are possibW  not to  blame, and should they succeed it will onlv be  owing- to the apatlry which Canadians,  and  es-  peciail\-   British   Columbians,   display*-  in  the  matter.   The intention is  to run   a branch of  the Nelson & Fort Shepherd road from Marcus  in a north-westerfv direction through  the Col-  ville reservation,  across  the border and  into  the heart of the Boundary-  Creek   couutiy.    It  does not require very  great knowledge of the  territory, or trade and commerce, to discern the  disastrous results which would certainl\- follow  should   parliament g-rant such  legislation  as  would enable the promoters to carry  out their  scheme.   Already a considerable portion of the  business of southern Kooteua3r finds an  outlet  into American cities, to the detriment of  those,  of the Dominion.    Canada has alrea'dj- invested  a large sum of money iu subsidizing-the Crow's  Nest Pass railwa3r to Nelson, where a stop foi-  the present is to be  made.   The  promoters of  the V. Y. & E. road, as well  as  Mr.  Heinze in  connection with the C. & W., aim at carrying- a  line from the Columbia river to Penticton, and  thence to the Coast.    In fact we are in  a position to state that all   that  now   remains is  for  the   Provincial   Government   to   complete  the  legislation of last 3-ear iu granting- the subsid\-  voted   of   S4,000   per   mile   from   Penticton  to  Bouudaiy Creek, and the V. V.  &  E.  will  be  commenced, and such arrangements will likely  be made during-the present session  as  will insure the construction of  the  line  between   the  points named.    We trust that no effort  will   be  left undone by the. Boards of Trade of this citv.  New Westminster and Victoria, iu   forwarding-  protests to the government and the  representatives of  the  people  iu  the  Commons and   the  Senate ag-aiust such legislation as  Mr.   Corbin  and those associated with him are now asking-.  Immediate action must be. taken if  there   is   to  be preserved to the coast cities and   to  Canada  g-enerally a trade the dimensions  of  which 110-  one can foretell.    Canada for Canadians !  It is unnecessary to state that the  foregoing- extract is taken from the  Vancouver   World.      That  the   World  should   publish   such   nonsense   is not  remarkable, but that the business men  comprising- the boards of trade of Victoria   and Jancouyer^should  endorse  such  ridiculous sentiments   is  beyond  the   comprehension  of   any  one   conversant with   the  facts  regarding-the  railway    question    in    the   Boundary  Creek country.    The same  policy was  pursued  by  the  business  men of  the  coast  cities  when   the  charter for the  Nelson and Fort Shepard railway was  being applied for.    Then, as now, the  cry was "Canada for the Canadians,"  a "cry  which /is   always   made   to   do  service by the Vancouver World when  the C. P. R. has a scheme  on  hand to  rob the public.    When the Nelson and  Fort Sheppard charter was   being- applied for, the Vancouver board of trade  held   an   indignation meeting.      The  following- extracts   are  from  a  newspaper report of that meeting-:  Mr. To\vule3r, a hig-h official of the, C. P. R.,  said he thought that compairy could give a  reasonable assurance that the line (from the  Kootena3'- couutry to the coast) would be built  within a short time.  Mr, Townley must have been mistaken. This speech was made six  years ag-o, and the people of the interior have still the "reasonable assurance that the road will be built in a1  short time."  Mr. McLag-an, the editor of the World, and  who evident^ voices the sentiments of the  Canadian Pacific company, said he had had  several conversations with Mr. Van Horne,and  he had never known him to belie his word. He  had no doubt the C. P. R. would build an alternate line from the coast to the Kootena3*  when the mo 1103-market was easier.  Apparently the " money market has  not become easier," for after a period  of six years   has elapsed, the C. P. R.  is still going to build from the coast to  Kootenay, and, if   the  World  is  to be  credited, the Victoria, Vancouver  and  Eastern will also commence construction " within a short time."    The only  obstacle in the way of either the C. P.  R. or the V., V. & F. is the bonus and  land grant.    Corbin has not the same  difficulties   with   which to contend   as  either of the other S3*"stems.    He is not  asking for a bonus or land grant.    He  wants  a charter  granting-   his road a  right'of    way   to   the   mines   of   the  Boundary   Creek   district.    This  is   a  purely- business proposition on the part  of Mr. Corbin.    The gentleman is not  a philanthropist.   His system has done  a large part  of   the   carrying-  trade of  the district   in   the   past  year  and  he  knows just what  it  is worth to him to  get his line running- into the   country.  The people of the coast have had six  years in which   to   build   a  road  from  the Columbia river to Vancouver.    In  that  time  three   charters   have   been  granted.    The Heinze charter received  the sanction of the legislature in 1896,  and althoug-h an   enormous land grant  was  voted  to   subsidize  the  proposed  road, nothing-has   been   done   towards  its construction.  The Victoria, Vancouver and pastern -company was the next to get a  charter. The promoters of that scheme,  instead of attempting- to build the rail-  wa.y, used their charter for the purpose of trying to extort mone3r from  the G. P. R. and Heinze. In fact, so  irresponsible were the parties to whom  the charter was granted, that they  have not )ret paid some of their surveyors for work done in locating the  proposed line.  In  regard  to   the   statement   that a  charter to Corbin would be injurious to-  Canadian business men, the only reply  that can be made is that  the editor of  the World is either ignorant  as to the  -trade of the district, or he is financial^  interested  in, the promotion of the V.r  V.   &  F.    More   than  90  per  cent, of  goods  handled  by  merchants  of  this  district  is   purchased   from   Canadian  wholesale houses, and  the  larger part  of this  merchandise  is  shipped  from  Fastern   Canada  and Manitoba   over  American roads, in bond.    If the coast  wholesale houses do not get-their share  of the trade of this district, they have  only themselves to blame if they cannot compete in an open market.    They  are   nearer   the    consumer   than   the  wholesale firms  of  Montreal, Toronto  and Winnipeg.    They have  the  same  facilities   for    transportation,    either  over one of the two American roads or  over the C. P. R.    The   merchants of  the Boundary Greek district are always-  At   Home   to   the  representatives   of  wholesale houses   that  do   " Business  on Business Principles." ;  A New Departure.  An announcement appeared in a  recent issue of the Vancouver World,  stating that that paper "had secured  the services of a Mr. Paterson, a thorough gentleman, as traveling correspondent." This is a new departure of  the World and will be appreciated by  the people of the province, and if the  management of that paper could secure  the services of some gentleman to write  its railroad editorials it would be  received with much greater appreciation by the reading public.  Now Is the Accepted Time.  The time for holding the  provincial  elections is gradually drawing nearer,  and still the people of this district have  taken no steps towards selecting a candidate to  represent  them   in   the  provincial      legislature.        If     a     redistribution bill is passed,  it is  probable  that the electoral district of Fast Yale  .will   be   divided,   and  a  candidate to  oppose the present government  should  be selected.    If the electoral district is  not divided, a   convention   should   be  called to either  nominate the  present  member, or some other person.    There  are a number of live  business men in  the district who would make  excellent  representatives,   and   one   should    be  selected  as  soon as  possible, in order  that there may be thorough  organization before the election is held.  /herchant tailor  GREENWOOD CITY, B.C.  &*>'   Perfect fit guaranteed. ��*:: '���rr,;,*;.ajf***tesaaah>.

The provisions of the charter now-  being applied for by the Kettle River  Valley Railway Co. are likely to suffer  ��� considerable amendment when before  the railway committee,���so our Ottawa  correspondent states. For instance :  Instead of the gauge being" optional  with the company, a standard g-auge of  4ft. 8)4 in. will be ��� compulsory. Construction shall commence within one  year from the passing- of the Act, instead of within two-years''; and be completed within two 3rears, instead of  seven. A monetary obligation to build  will also be added. The schedule of  charges for use of telegraph and telephone by the public, shall be approved  bj' the Governor-iu-Council Consent of  municipalities must be had before entering- upon public streets, and work  done thereon shall be subject to their  supervision and control.

[SPECIAL  CORRESPONDENCE.]  Ottawa, Feb. 23rd.���A bill entitled  ���" An Act to Incorporate the Kettle  River Valley Railway Company," was  introduced into the House of Commons  ������oil Friday last. It received its second  reading- on Monday and has now to  face that terror to all railway legislation���the railway committee. The bill  is in charge of Hewitt Bostock, M.P.,  the member for Yale-Cariboo, than  whom there is no more painstaking- or  popular member in the house. Mr.  Bostock is a hard worker, and while  ���other members are enjoying the pleasures which the capital affords he is  working in the interests of his enormous constituency.  Owing to the approaching Ontario  elections, the members have deserted  the house and have taken the stump in  aid of their political friends. So many  members left that to-day the house was  adjourned for a week, and consequently  it will be .March 1st before the railway  committee meets.  The   Kettle   River  Valley   Railway  Co.'s bill is a surprise  to  many  members.    They ask : What kind of man is  this   Corbin   who   introduces   such   a  startling   innovation   that   no  public  lands nor  public money* are  asked  to  assist in the construction of arailwav"?  It is  an  innovation  in   the  Dominion  parliament; if possible, it  would be a  greater innovation  in  the  Provincial  legislature. Those who oppose the passage of the  bill   are  divided  into  two  classes : The honest legislator who con-  scientiously believes that it is inimical  to the best interests  of  the  Dominion  to grant the right to construct further  railways into American territory, and  the   designing-   politician  who   scents  dang-er to his own   schemes.    The first  class is composed of members who are  open   to   argument and  who   change  their opinions  when they  understand  the peculiar circumstances of the case.  The latter  advance  no  arguments  of  their own and will listen to none  from  others.    They depreciate the precedent  which Mr. Corbin establishes by undertaking to,build a railway without subsidies or land grants and they fear that  their occupation of securing public aid  for    charter mongers    is     endangered  thereby.  W. W. B. Mclnnes and George R.  Maxwell, members for British Columbia, will oppose the Corbin charter.  The other British Columbia members  will give their support. One is tempted to use strong language in describing the position taken by these two  distinguished statesmen from our own  province. The relationship existing  between them and the V. V. & E}. gang  is of the most intimate kind. It is a  well known fact that the V. V. & K.  charter was bonded to Messrs. McKen-  zie & Mann for $75,000. Of this  amount $5,000 was paid in cash and the  balance is to be paid after the session  of the parliament of Canada and British Columbia. This means that if  good fat subsidies are forthcoming-,  Messrs. McKenzie & Mann or their  principals,  will  pay  the original pro  moters   of   the  charter $70,000���if the  subsidies are not voted  the  promoters  ���:'.'���' ��� ' ,  will  have the charter on  their  hands.  One can readily understand then  why  Norman McL,ean and Messrs. Maxwell  and   Mclnnes   are   showing-  so  much  anxiety for the V. V. & 10.    They care  nothing- for   the   natural   resources of  their province, they care nothing- about  the opening- up of  the  rich  Boundary  Creek district ; they  resent  leg-itimate  railway     enterprises     and     they are  attempting* to bulldoze the representatives of the   people   into   voting- public  money in  order   that their friends, the  chartermongers,   may  be  enriched  to  the extent of  $70,000.    They  will  find  in Ottawa that honest  railway legislation will win.    Mr. Bodwell of Victoria  Mr. Corbin, Mr-, Bostock and the Boundary Creek deleg-ate are  driving- home  the facts in connection with the necessity for the road and  the  feeling   that  the charter should be granted  is daily  growing" stronger.    Mr.   Armstrong of  G-rand Forks has gone to Toronto and  from what I can learn he  is  bringing  pressure  to  bear  on  members  of the  house.     ,,.  Yukon '!" Yukon ! Yukon ! With Kloii-  dyke variations is the onry   tune  sung-  in   Ottawa.    It  grates  upon   the   ear  worse than   "Molly Riley "   in Greenwood.    For two weeks nothing else has  been heard in the house until members  and spectators wished that the  Yukon  was lifted bodily and   placed   in   a climate the opposite to that which it now  enjoys.    I  cannot  agree  with  the excerpt from the News-Advertiser  which  The Times quotes  with  approval.    I  have always  opposed the granting of  public lands to railway  companies but  in Yukon   there   is   an extraordinary  and exceptional   condition   of   affairs.  Placer  mining  is  speculative, temporary at best.    The rush lasts for one or  two  years  and   then   dies  out.    This  was the casein California and.',British  Columbia.    But     California      offered  other  inducements   to   the argonauts;  so did British   Columbia.    Both   countries were   opened up   because of   the  rush.    No one will say that Yukon will  be   anything-   but   a   mining   district  when the placer   mining   is   over   the  country'   will     become   depopulated.  Should the government expend public  money in building a railway into  such  a   territory ?    A   railway   there   is   a  necessity and the government are to be  congratulated in securing its .construction without the cost of one cent to the  taxpayers of Canada.    I think this is a  reasonable view to  take of  the  situation.  Ontario   Elections,  The provincial elections in Ontario  were held Tuesday last and resulted in  a victory for the conservative opposition. The liberals have been in power  for upwards of 25 years and a change  will not be a bad thing- for that province. The latest dispatches place the  standing of the house at 46 conservatives, 43 liberals, and 3 doubtful. This  will not give the conservatives a good  working- majority.  iLVERWAftf  MILLER   BR@S  �����_��  The Pioneer Jewelers,  GREENWOOD.  _MM0K��-49MM��>-9-^M��-<-wK��M��;*e-*wMMaKe-4a>-e-��i��-c-4e----e-<e��-<��-49  s  A  ���  &  I  ft  I  'A  9  T  ���  i  I  A  !  ft  i  &  r  A.  ft  r  ���  ft.

Thos. Hardy^ Esq., President Boundary Creek  ��������� Mining- and Commercial Association, Greenwood Cit3r, B. C.  Dear Sir.���At a meeting- of the Grand Forks  Board of Trade, held Saturday afternoon, Feb.  26th, for the purpose of taking- action reg-ard-  ing- the opposition of the people, of Victoria  and Vancouver to the Kettle River Valley railway ���, resolutions were passed condemning- the  action of the Board of Trade of Victoria in  writing- the British Columbia members at  Ottawa to use their influence ag-ainst the granting- of a charter to the said road. I was also  instructed to furnish the Boundary Creek Min-;  ing- and Commercial Association with a cop3'  of the same, and request their co-operation in  this matter by taking- similar action. I also  inclose a copy of two petitions that are now  being- circulated here under the direction of the  Grand Forks Board of Trade, which are being-  g-enerally signed.  Believing- that unless the residents of this  district can convince the citizens of the coast  that we are in dead earnest in this matter, that  they will, by their opposition to the Kettle  River Valley railway, keep us from securing- a  railwa3* throug-h the district this A'ear.  Hoping- that the members of your valuable  association will look at this opposition in the  same lig-ht as those of the Grand Forks Board  of Trade, and will-take such action as you think  , will have the best results in this matter at the,  earliest possible time.

Several communications were read  from Duncan Ross, delegate to Ottawa,  reporting progress made in railway  legislation.  The president advised that some  action be taken in reference to communications from Grand Forks Board  of Trade, and strongly criticised the  course adopted by the coast boards of  trade in opposing the Corbin charter,  as the coast cities would be benefitted  by competitive lines entering this district. After considerable discussion,  in which Messrs. Harlan, L,aw, McRae, Macfarland and Phelan, the  association, while agreeing with the  resolutions passed by the Grand Forks  Board of Trade, decided that a boycott  on coast wholesale houses would be  unbusinesslike, and interfered with  the liberty  of the  local  merchant.  Mr. Hodge, district superintendent  of the Vernon and Nelson Telephone  company, was introduced and made a  short speech. He had been sent here  to look over the country. Although  his company had not been in the habit  of accepting bonuses, he thought the  City of Greenwood should bonus them  to the extent of furnishing the poles  between here and Grand Forks. (Here  the president winked, Aid. Phelan  smiled. Aid. Galloway looked astonished, and J. H. Macfarland and  W. Nelson bolted.) Mr. Hodge was  thanked for attending the meeting,  and a resolution   was   passed instruct  ing the secretary to correspond with  company, expressing the desire of association to see a telephone service in  the district.  Association then adjourned.  *,. ��� ���-^k^=P���  Subscription, 50c. per Month.  ALL    THE    BEST    NOVELS.  Greenwood Book Store,  9 GOVERNMENT  ST.

In the evening  Provincial Officer Eawder was notified  and started for Grand Forks at 11,  arriving- there at 3 in the morning, just  as the stage for Marcus was leaving,  with the Jap on board.  Officer Eawder arrested his man, and  was taking him to the lock up, for safe  keeping- untilhis return to Greenwood,  when the Jap made a bolt for liberty.  Officer Eawder invited the Oriental to  quit running, calling him by his Christian or Bucldist name, which is Jetsua,  but he quit not. Mr. Eawder is not a  person who becomes excited and uses ,  improper lang-uage. He ag-ain warned  the Oriental that he was violating the  quit clause in the criminal code, mentioning; at the same time the Jap's full  name���Jetsua Miyakami. Mr. Eawder  lost ten 3*-ards in the pronunciation of  the name, while the Jap was hitting  the adjacent knolls at an astonishing  rate,    taking-   into   consideration   his  diminutive  running-  gear.  Notwith  standing- the loss of 10 3'ards, Mr. Eawder was still a good second, and again  reproved the Oriental���this time without mentioning names���warning him  that the "race was not always to the  .swift," and that the criminal code was  not to be treated thus contemptuously,  but the Oriental hearkened not. After  ruiining 200 yards the officer commenc-  ed shooting in the air. The first shot  had not the desired effect, and another  was tried. This time the Jap began to  think Officer.Eawder was in earnest,  and dropped, and was re-arrested. On  Saturday he was brought back to  Greenwood.  Officer Eawder deserves cridit for his  energy in the case. A nig-ht ride in  the saddle between Greenwood and  Grand Forks in four hours is not b3r  any means a pic-nic, and had he been  a half an hour later the prisoner  would have been in the United States, "  entailing a considerable expense to the  province for his extradition.  On Monday morning at .11 o'clock,  Jetsua Mi3rakami was brought before  Police Magistrate Hallett, on two  charges : One of stealing- a sapphire  pin from Mr. Barrett, and the other of  stealing- $25 from a Japanese woman  named Taketuyti, Officer Eawder prosecuting. The prisoner was committed  for trial on both charges.  Wholseale and Retail Dealers in  FRESH   AND   SALTED   MEATS  HAMS, BACON, LARD, Etc. :: :  GREENWOOD. GRAND FORKS, & MIDWAY.
