Copper Street,  LAST CHANCE MINE  Within two miles of the City of  Greenwood is the Last Chance mine,  which is likely to prove one of the big-  dividend-payers of the Boundary Creek  district. Big- ledges and good values  are among; the characteristics of the  property..'''. Its future is, also in safe  hands. The Last Chance'is owned by���  a company of Spokane capitalists who  , are quietly expending considerable  money in its'development. A few  days ago a plant, purchased from the  Jenckes Machine company, consisting  of a 60-horsepower boiler, a hoist and  a-pump with a capacity of 100 gallons  per minute was installed, and  ' preparations are now being made for  increasing the working staff to sink  the shaft to the 150-foot level and drift  and crosscut at different levels.  : The Last Chance is among the old  locations of the district. It is a full-  sized claim and crown-granted. The  company owning the property "is the  Boundary Mining company, with its  head office at Spokane and provincial  office at. Greenwood. It is capitalized  for $1,000,000, and the directors are  John V. Graham, Sol H. Mayer, S.  Rosenhaupt, D, L. Werner and Sid  Rosenhatipt. Mr. Sid Rosenhaupt is '  at present in the city directing the  work for the company.  There are two distinct ledges on the  property.. One is a gold and silver  ledge, carrying average values of over  $100, .the gold values averaging S20.  On this ledge a shaft has been sunk  for lOO'feet.irAt SO feet adriftw^frun  south.24 feet, and another drift was iruri  north 11 feet. From, the end of this  drift a crosscut,was ruri 29 feet towards  ,the north wall. This crosscut is all in  ledge matter., and neither wall has been  encountered. The ledge includes a rich  pay streak from which very high values  have been secured.  Ledge No. 2 runs almost parallel with  the one discribed. It has been opened  by surface cuts, and runs into the adjoining property, the Lake. Here a  shaft has been sunk. The ore on the  surface runs from $4 to $6 in gold..  A working shaft, 8}4x.A feet, in the  clear is being sunk on the Last Chance  between the two ledges. This shaft is  down 106 feet. It will be continued to  the 150-foot level, and crosscuts and  drifts run at different levels.  There are at present five men work-  ing on the property. As soon as the  new bunkhouse is completed-this force  will be increased.  THE   NORTH   STAR.  McEntire, & McDonnell, have bonded theNorth Star, Golden Eagle and  Cairgorm claims in Long Lake camp.  The properties are owned by Robert  Wood and associates. The North Star is  a well-known LongLake property upon  which considerable development-work  has been done. There is a tunnel 140  feet in length giving a depth of 100  feet, a 65-foot shaft, and also a 20-foot  shaft. The tunnel follows the vein.  Mr. McEntire received samples  from  An act for safety, etc., of workmen  Companies Act.  The above with  Amendments for 1899  Now  on   Sale  at  SMITH   &  McRAE'S,  Books, Stationciy, Wallpaper, Notions  - and Fancy Goods,  GREEMWOOD,     B.O.

These  were assayed, and the values were as  follows :���gold, S10; S43; S107.50;$119.  The latter sample also gave S16.80 in  silver. A fifth sample, ran 73 ounces  gold and 1,280 ounces, in silver, or a  total value of over 52,600. McEntire,  McDonnell, & Co., are negotiating the  sale of the group to eastern capitalists.  Now that the Jewel, Anchor, Enterprise, and Lakeside are turning out so  well, there is every encouragement to  expend money in the development of  Long Lake Camp properties.  BETTER   MAIL   SERVICE.  Postorflee Inspector Dorman In the District���  Bossburg a Distributing Point. ,  Postoffice Inspector Dorman passed  through Greenwood on Tuesday. He  spent several days at Grand Forks  where Mr. Hull, formerly of the Rossr  land office, has: taken charge of the  Grand Forks postoffice. Mr. Hull is an  experienced postoffice man and it is  confidently expected that a better service will now be established. The department has also succeeded in inducing the U. S. government to, make  Bossburg a distributing office, so that  the delays are now a thing of the past.  Mr. Dorman went up to the West Fork  country.- He will report on the best  place to establish a postoffice in that  section. He; intends returning to the  district in a few weeks to open a post-  office at Eholt;    :���'������'���:--���'���  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.  J. W. Astley, the well-known mining  engineer, who negotiated the Snowshoe  deal, is in the city.  Miss Gibson of Vernon will shortly  open a kindergarten school in the city.  Miss Gibson is an experienced teacher.  Geo. E. Seymour leaves in a few  days for England' in connection with a  mining deal .which he. is negotiating  rfor "Oldl.Country"���-people;":;r :;''..:''".  : General Warren and Ross Thompson  of Rossland, arrived in the city last5;  evening. They visited Republic, and  the B. A'. C.'s properties on La Fluer  Mountain.    ,  Rev. Mr. Oswald preached an eloquent and instructive sermon to the.  Odd Fellows on Sunday. Owing to  the inclemency of the weather the street  parade was abandoned.  A. J. McMillen and B. C. Murray,  who are interested in the syndicate  which recently bonded the Snowshoe,  have arrived from Rossland this week,  and are staying at the mine for a few'  days. .  The Greenwood hospital was reopened on Monday. Dr. Jakes, Dr.  Oppenheimer, and competent nurses  will be in charge. The Greenwood  hospital became famous for the excellence of the care and medical attendance when running before. It is a  necessity in a city like Greenwood and  should receive every encouragement  from mine owners and others. Dr.  Jakes and family have moved to Mr.  Hodgson's residence iii Midway, but  the doctor comes to Greenwood every  day to attend to his practice.  The waters of Boundary Creek now  pass through the new channel, and the  stream no longer meanders through  valuable real estate. The big cut  through the hill was completed Tuesday, afternoon, and the creek was  turned in the presence of a large number of spectators. The work was completed none too soon as Boundary  Creek is rapidly rising. The work has  been well done, and the creek now lias  a straight sweep for over a mile through  the town. On either side of the channel are level driveways. The street  from Deadwood is to be known as  "Boundary Avenue."  The "wide open town" system is  being introduced with a vengeance.  The denizens of Silver street and  across the creek have now the privilege  of contributing to the exchequer of the  city without the formality of appearing before the police magistrate. May  Day was celebrated in Greenwood by  the appearance of nearly half a hundred ladies of various ages and colors,  wending their way through the city to  the police court, where the landladies  each paid SIS and inmates SS to City  Clerk Taylor. They were each presented with a corporation receipt,  marked " miscellaneous," which is supposed to grant immunity from further  interference during the month. <&  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  I     H.

The court of revision, which held  a meeting last week, succeeded in  maintaining the reputation of the  municipal council by doing its work in  an irregular manner. The court is  constituted for the purpose of hearing  complaints and adjudicating upon the  same ; not for the purpose of mutilating the work of the assessor. There were  no complaints before the court, which  busied itself with increasing the assessment of property on Copper street  and other parts of the city. The sections of the municipal act under which  the court of revision increased the assessment distinctly limits the power  of the court. The court of revision is  also a court of equalization under two  specific conditions. The first is, that  in the event of the assessor's valuation of land and improvements, as:  shown by assessment roll, being in the  opinion of a majority of all the meni--  bers of the court of revision as expressed by resolution, in excess of the  actual cash value, the board may then  direct the assessor to reduce the value  of all the land and improvements on  the assessment roll. The other condition is that a complaint shall be  lodged with the assessor at least ten  days before the sitting of the court.  No authority is given in the act to the  court'of revision to increase the assessment of a certain portion of the  land and improvements in the city.  The action of the court was illegal and  destroys the valine of the assessmen troll  THE   C0EUR   D'ALENE   OUTRAGE.  Tin; blowing up of the Bunker Hill  mill by 1,000 union miners, was a most  suicidal proceeding from a labor union  standpoint. ��� The strength of labor  unions lies in the fact that they usually  have right on their side. Acts of violence and the wanton destruction of  valuable property are inexcusable  under any circumstances. The worst  enemies of labor are the blatant dema-  gogues who do nothing except to pose  as .leaders and champions of labor.  The recent trouble is not new to the  Cceur d'Alenes. The remedy is in the  hands of the miners. The better class  among the.miners have allowed themselves to be terrorized and led by a  vicious element who have no respect  for law or the rights of' others. This  better class should assert itself. They.  should choose their leaders from among  themselves and give the so-called labor  leaders 24 .hours to start for British  Columbia. British Columbia has no  use for such characters, but they  usually come here when forced to seek  pastures new. A wholesome respect  for-British law, under which the Bunker Hill outrage would be impossible,  generally renders the Cceur de'Alene  tough a harmless individual.  THE  HOTEL KEEPERS'  APPLICATION^  The genial, jovial hotelman is in a  good humor these days and wants to  have a little fun with the city council.  He is doing a big business, cannot accommodate all the people who wish to  patronize him and is consequently in  the best of spirits. The application  for the creation of an hotel monopoly in  in a rapidly growing city like Greenwood cannot be considered seriously.  It is too absurd to be considered for a  single moment. Several new hotels  are'under course of erection, and it is  no disparagement to the present hotels  to say that some of the new ones are  an improvement on the old ones so far  as the buildings are concerned. There'  is room in the city for a really first-  class hotel. If the application of;the  hotel keepers were granted, none of  those would be allowed the right to do  business. In any case the granting of  a hotel license is primarily a niatter  that rests with the citizens. If they  desire another hotel they petition the  license commissioners that a license  be granted. If the petition is regular,  itnder ordinary circumstances it ought  to be granted. The citizen has the  right to buy a suit of clothes or a pair  of boots or a pound of tea where it  suits him best; he should have a  similar right to buy a meal or a glass  of grog. Indeed, his rights extend  farther. It is within his power to ask  that a license be granted to a new  hotel and refused an old one, if such a  course be in the public interest. The  creation of a monspoly in any line of  business by denying a man tlie. right  to enter into competition with those  already established in business, cannot be supported or tolerated.  "Cutters patent, granting incorporation to Columbia,,were issued by the  lieutenant-governor-in-council on May  1st. Incorporation was not secured  without much trouble. Grand Forks  vigorously protested against granting  incorporation to what its people sneer-  ingly called a suburb, and sent two  delegates to Victoria to interview the  government. Their protests were  without avail; however. It will be interesting from a municipal standpoint  to watch the progress of the two incorporated cities, situated within half  a mile of each other.  4��  4��  4��  THE FIRST SHIPMENT OF  AMERICAN  IK ll  For Spring and Summer Wear have arrived.

DICK   GBOWS   ELOQUENT,  In Speaking of the Mineral Resources of the  Boundary Creek District. .  Last week the citizens of Rossland  tendered a banquet to J. C. Gwillim,  B.Sc, who had just completed a course  of 65 lectures 'before the Rossland  school of mines. Among'the speakers  at the banquet, was Mr. Alexander  Dick, who responded to the toast' of  "The Mining Industry." Mr. Dick  spoke in glowing terms of the Boundary Creek district. His remarks, as  published by the, Rossland Miner, will  prove interesting reading :'  " He expressed the great pleasure it .  gave him to be present at a dinner in  recognition   of   the   services-of   Mr.  Gwillim.    Hehad known Mr. Gwillim  for three years, especially in the Slocan  district, where he had won an enviable  ,, reputation as a conscientious engineer  and geologist.    It was, therefore, most  gratifying to hear, from Mr.: Gwillim  himself, that Rossland, in his  opinion,  was the great mining camp of British  Columbia, for, as a rule, Slocan  men.,  .were loyally wedded to their own silver-  lead idols.     He hoped the school of  mines would receive that recognition  at the hands of the government which  it deserves.    The government of Nova  Scotia, whose principal source  of revenue is the royalty from the mines of  the province, three years ago appointed  mining lecturers throughout the. mining districts, ��� in order that technical  knowledge   might   be given to those  who had not these advantages earlier  in  life.   The experiment' had proved  most'successful, and  the same  would  undoubtedly  be true  here;    Never in  the history of British Columbia had  the mining industry  been so prosperous and the future so full of promise.  The growth of Rossland camp had been  sketched   by" General Warren   whose  great faith in this camp had been fully  warranted by the  developments of the  past two years.    Mr. Dick referred to  the great advance in  the price of Le  Roi shares, which had reached   ��9  in  London,   as  evidence of  the  interest  manifested in Rossland,  as compared  with   two   years, ago.     He   spoke   at  length  of the great   progress   of the  Boundary Creek district,  particularly  Summit camp, midway between Grand  Forks and Greenwood.   He had visited  this, section recently  and   firmly, believed that the production there would  steadily increase.    A lot of. promising  properties were now being developed  there which would add greatly  to  the  wealth of the province.    Further west  the great lodes of low grade . ore were  being opened up, and it was confidently  believed that with  the advent of the  railway, within a few months, the district known as the West Fork of the  Kettle river would rival the older districts in the size and value of  the ore  deposits, which had as yet been merely  scratched. by  prospectors,   A district  about 150  miles  wide  had  only  been  hurriedly explored, aad  it was  therefore conceivable  that  the mining industry of the province  was  in   its  infancy.    The Boundary Creek  country  undoubtedly offered great inducements  for the   profitable  investment  of  capital.    West of this,   again, we had the  Similkameen district, which   appeared  to be the  Mecca of "the pioneers  and  prospectors Athis    year.     Marvellous  stories of finds of copper ore were heard  on every side, coming from that quarter, and from  trustworthy information  which he had  it was probable that a��  gaeat mining district  would spring up  there and " bloom as a rose in the wilderness."    Could any other country today offer such inducements tor  the investment   of   capital?      He   admitted  that Canadians had not  until recently  fully appreciated their great and glorious heritage of hidden  treasure,  but  they had at last awakened in  some degree to the future possibilities  of this  country.    Within five years the whole  face of the country would change and  the mining industry of  British Columbia would, he predicted,  equal,  if not  surpass, that of any  other country  of  the same area in the world."  ARE   FISSURE   VEINS.  Clarence King, the -geologist, is giving his evidence in the famous Center  Star-Iron Mask suit at Rossland. He  is on the Center Star side of the case,  and contends that the ore bodies at  Rossland are fissure veins. The following is an extract from his testimony : " I should say that all of the  larger veins, at least, and perhaps the  smaller ones also, belong to a single  type. They are, distinctly and predominantly, fissure veins. It is clear  that through such a mass of rock as  this, chemical solutions could not  penetrate without the avenue of cracks  and interstices ; and, therefore, where-  ever any mineral foreign to the rock  itself may be found it can be easily  classed, either as intrusive dyke, or as  mineral matter which  has come along  VICTORIA, B.

The mineral-bearing  <> veins here are well characterized^ fissure veins ; and certainly some of the  larger ones, and perhaps many of  them, are what are known as shear  zone fissures. That type is not perhaps so well known and so widely  known as the simple fissure, but it is  recognized and does exist oyer a very  wide range of territory. I have seen  it in Mexico, I am working a mine of  that type now in Colorado, I have seen  it in Nevada, and I know it when I  see it here. Shear zone differs from  the single fissure in an important particular. While a single fissure may  result from a vertical action, or even  be the resultant of two horizontal compressions, through compressing forces,;  the shear zone is always, made under  very high conipression'-^compression  which holds the: rock very tightly, together, and which prevents a wide  opening of- fissures,7arid -that .shear  zone is always the result, and almost  always the result of a disturbance of  opposing couples, of what are technically called "couples" of pressure���the  disturbance of that couple by a vertical complement or a vertical force ;  while the plain open fissure may result from a direct upward thrust, the  shear zone is always the result of a  very powerful compression ; and since  that compression is very great, and almost equals the distributing force,  whatever it is, that produces the fissure, it is apt to break, and always  does practically break in more or less  parallel seams or fissures; that making a family whose exterior boundary  is always assignable, if you crosscut,  or find the surface well exposed, and  study the ground. Instead of being  an indefinite amount of parallel fissures, extending into a country an un-  discoverable distance, it is always a  discoverable and limitable collection  or family of more or less parallel  fissures. Since these forces are never  mathematically adjusted to each other  to be in exact opposition, the resulting fractures are not absolutely  parallel."

Work Wili Be Resumed on the Smith Camp  Properties.  ���Work will'be started shortly on the  Republic group in Smith's camp.  While east Mr. Smith interested eastern capital in these properties. The  Republic group are among the.oldest  locations in the Boundary Creek country. They were discovered in 1887 by  W. T. Smith.. Since their location almost 310,000 has been expended in development. There is a'100-foot shaft  on the Last Chance, with several surface crosscuts, showing from 3 to 5 feet  of ore. There is another 100-foot shaft  on the Republic. . On the Noh. Such  there is a SO-foot . shaft sunk on the  ledge and several open cuts stripping  the ledge for S00 feet feet.. There are  also two. tunnels on this property. One  is 280 feet in length, giving a depth of  80 feet on the ledge. The ledge in the  tunnel is from 3 to S feet in width. At  200 feet there is au upraise' to the surface, a distance of 67 feet. The lower  tunnel is, in 30,0 feet, but, has not yet  encountered the ledge.  THE   CORBIN   CHARTER.  Mr.  Corbin Gives His  Reasons. for propping  .Application'.;.  Mr. D. C; Corbin writes that .he received a letter from,, Mr. Bostock and  Mr. Bodwell also received a letter from .  ���him, saying that,; he did not think'  there was any chance of passing the  bill and Mr. Corbin : gave instructions  to drop it. Mr. Corbiti was sorry that'  Mr. Bodwell could . riot go ��� do\yn to  Ottawa, but that- was an impossibility  owing to the Iron Mask case. Mr.  Corbin also, states "Of courseI was  anxious to get the charter, and I have  spent a good many thousand dollars to  that end������more, I think, than I will  ever spend again, as the charter has  not nearly tlie value now that it would  have had,.had it been given to me last  year, inasmuch as the. Canadian Pacific has been given the preference  and allowed to occupy the, country, and  has filed maps in every possible direction,so that another road coming in.  there now would be very badly handi-;  capped, to say the least."  Mr. Corbin, in an interview' in the  Spokesman-Review, says that it is.  quite possible that he may ..renew, the  application next year.  WHAT   IS   AMERICA ?  Andrew Woolslager reads his Swiss  paper regularly.    A. short time ago he  came across; a cleverly-written., satire  on-America by: a   Swiss   author.     It  pleased Andrew very much, and W. L,.  C. Gordon of this city kindly consented  to  translate  it   into  English  so  that  others could enjoy  Andrew's pleasure.  Below   will   be   found    the   author's  opinion, as translated by Mr. Gordon:  "America is a  land, compared  with  which Europe is but a small peninsula;  The United States stand for a government   beside  which  the   kingdoms  of  Europe   are   but  petty  principalities.  America is the land  of  immeasurable  spaces and distances ; the  land.of dollars and   electricity ; where the plains  are   vaster,  the   rivers mightier,  the  waterfalls higher, the  bridges longer,  the express trains faster   and the accidents   more  terrible  than   in  Europe.  The land where the  houses are loftier,  millions of greater value, wealth more  common, the rich richer, the poor more  poverty-stricken;   the    thieves    more  daring,   the  murderers  -more .'.unconcerned ; the scoundrels more  and  the  educated    less    in    number   than   in  Europe.   The land of more false teeth,  of   tighter   corsets,   of   more   deadly  diseases    and    of    universal    Trusts;  where   jealousy   is   more   skilled  and  folly    more    systematic;    where    the  summers   are  hotter and   the   winters  are  colder; fire fiercer, and  ice more  icy ;   where  time  is  more  costly  and.  men's nerves more highly strung than  in   sleepy   Europe.    The   land   where  gray beards are younger  and children  older, black men are blacker and white  men   yellower   than   elsewhere.   The  land of boundless  natural  riches, and  often   most    monstrous    avarice;    in  siiort, the land of the most extraordinary contradictions and  the most fabulous  extremes:   the  land   of the most  extravagant  pretentions, of  the most  reckless  pursuit  after  wealth,  and of  the most   insane  lust  for  requisition;  the   land   of  the  stupendous  and  the  colossal���at  least   in   the   opinion   of  Americans."  RAILROAD   TO   REPUBLIC.  Three weeks ago the Railroad Gazette, which .is usually official in these  matters, stated that the Canadian  Pacific had " just made announcement  of its intention to build a branch from i  Midway to the Republic mining camp !  in Washington, 30 miles." !  That announcement, though, was !  prior to the withdrawal of the appli- J  cation of D. C. Corbin for a charter for   j  his proposed railroad up Kettle river  into the Boundary Creek country. It  was probably a counter move against  the Corbin enterprise, and now that  the Corbin application has been withdrawn, it is probable that the Canadian Pacific, will relinquish its threat  toi invade Republic. This supposition  is strengthened by the statement in  the Toronto Globe, that the withdrawal of the Corbin application was  "the result of an understanding participated in by the Grand Trunk and  Canadian Pacific- railway companies  and Messrs. Hill and D. C. Corbin, in  whose interest the measure of last  year was introduced."  In other words, it has, been agreed  that the Canadian Pacific shall stay  on its side of the boundary, and the  Great Northern shall not further invade the territory of the Canadian  Pacific.  .If this supposition be correct, President Hill holds the key to railway construction into Republic camp. He has.  check-mated the Canadian Pacific, and  can take his leisure in building into.:  the reservation.  Meanwhile he is pushing his surveys over the San Poil route with  energy and apparent purpose to build  into Republic, whenever, in his judgment, the business of that district will  justify construction. The thing for  Republic mine owners is to keep the  drills going; and put Mr. Hill , in con.-  stant possession of reliable information, regarding the camp's development.���Spokesman-Review.-  '   , ;,'  ,,T.wo: Daily Trains.  , . The announcement  Has been, riia.de  that   the   Canadian   Pacific   Railway'^  company has decided to put on a second  daily passenger train  from  Winnipeg ,  west, the route being via' the main line;  to Dunniore,.thence, via theLethbridge  road and the Crow's Nest Pass  line to  Nelson direct.    From Winnipeg direct  ���to  the   heart   of the Kootenays  is a  . great thing for Nelson and  the rest of  the,  district,  and   the   news   will   no  doubt  be welcomed.    No doubt, also,  the C. If. R. will use it to the  full, extent as ,a drawing card  in  Winnipeg  and^the.east to stimulate efforts to increase trade .with .the rich and rapidly.,.,  .advancing; hiini.ng.;. region., q'ff seu'tn-ji  eastern,British Gblurnbia.   It'iis.n'of .at&  all likely that freight shipping facilities, have, by reason  of the new: departure, in   passenger.,  serv.ice,. .been,,  made one i\yhit.better,or more.adyanta- ;  geotis than present existing conditions  of freight service; so  that from that  point of view   the change is not of  direct interest to coast business  men.  But from another point of view it is a  most material change,. and niatei tally  will it affect the, development of trade  between the centers of business on the  coast and in the interior.���-B. C. Weekly  : No Justice There.  All   those   patriotic    considerations  would not have been  allowed to stand ,  .three minutes in the way  of  the C. P., [  ��� R.   if that   corporation   had   been  as! ���  as anxious to  get  a  subsidy  to  build: -  the Kettle  River   Valley   railway as it  was to  prevent   the  building  of  that  road without expense  to the country.  Canada has anipie power to levy export duties, and so  prevent Cana'dian  ores from being used to build up foreign  smelters.  It is strange that the paliiotibtn  which is willing to bind a district neck  > and heels to the C. P. R. does not unite ;  in the enactment of the law for the  the levying of an export duty on Canadian ores.  A law which kept Canadian ores  from going out would help Canadian industry more effectually than a law  which would keep American railways  from coming in.  The abandonment of the fight for  the Kettle River Valley railway charter  is a recognition of the sad truth that  railway influence , is so . completely  master of the government and opposition that it is useless for the Canadians of the Boundary Creek district  to ask justice from the national parliament at Ottawa.���Toronto Telegram.  and all in the Boundary Creek country, but also with all points in Washington, Idaho, Oregon and California.

The Province Traveling Correspondent. Writes  About Greenwood.  In a recent issue of the .Vancouver  Province, J. T. Wilkinson writes about  Greenwood as follows :  ," Greenwood in, particular is going  ahead by leaps and bounds. It is,  Rossland No. 2. There is no use making comparisons. One man may see  just as far ahead as another. Greenwood or any other town, can never be .  built up by pulling; neighboring towns  down. Rossland's .future is assured,  and is growing steadily.

Townsite.  When the!riches of Trail Creek district werefirst exploited, it was considered that' the section surrounding-  Rossland was a mining-basis,in a desert  of valueless rock. Shortly afterwards,  Boundary Creek came rapidly to the  front, until today it receives more  attention in-the mining- and financial  world than the Trail district. Rossland is tlie product of the development  of Trail Creek district. Greenwood'  stands in a similar position to Boundary Creek. Still, farther west another  section is rapidly coming-to the front  because of its bodies of rich ore; and it  is only a question of a very short time  until the West-Fork country occupies a  position equal to that of Trail or Boundary Creek. The West-Fork country  will -have its metropolis like Trail  Creek and Boundary Creek. What is  to be the location of this commercial  centre ? Trade is g-overned by natural  laws, and is controlled through natural  channels. The town of the West-Fork  country must be a natural townsite, a  convenient point to the mines that are  to be developed, and must be on the  line of railway.  Where Beaver Creek enters into the  West Fork of the Kettle River is a  large tract of comparatively level land  which was pre-empted by J. T. Bell  nearly two years ago. R. Smailes,  manager of the firm of Rendell & Co.,  has become associated with Mr.Bell in  the ownership of the property. Sidney  M. Johnson, P.L,.S., is at present on  the ground; subdividing the property  into town lots. These lots will be  placed on the market in a tew days.  The town is to be known as " Rendell,"  in honorof G-; Arthur Rendell, senior  member ;of the firm of Rendell & Co.  " Rendell'* enjoys the advantages of  being an, ideal townsite, with splendid  building sites, good water supply, and  all the natural advantages incident to  a first-class townsite. Recently the C.  P. R. engineers completed the survey  of   the   route through  the West-Fork  CHINKS, Garbage Boxes and Ccss-  ^���^ pools need attention now. Sometimes sickness in the summer months is  due'to lack of disinfectants. Be on the  safe side���use Ckeolin now.  CREOLIN is a.'prompt, reliable and  safe disinfectant. It is not poisonous,  and that is one of the reasons why it is  in such demand. Death through carbolic  acid is frequent.  '   '        .  G="W>  IN addition.to its use as a general  disinfectant, Creolin is an agreeable  deodorizer for .the sick room, an effective home remedy for burns, cuts and  other hurts; and a useful application in  treating skin .blemishes and parasitic  diseases of animals.  THREE table spoonfuls of Creolin  mixed with a gallon of water makes a  good disinfectant  ILLER BROS.  Druggists and Jewelers.  country and on to Penticton or the Mission. "Rendell "is an important point  on this survey. Here two projected  branch lines to rich mining sections in  the vicinity connect with the niain line.  The town also enjoys the advantage of  being in the hands of shrewd and enterprising men with plenty of capital  to give it a start in life. . Messrs. Olson  & Phelan were the first to appreciate  its advantages, and have already established themselves'iii. business there.  The owners of the.townsite have a saw  mill and shingle mill coming in so that  ^residents of " Rendell " will be able to  secure an ample supply of building-  material. "Rendell" stands to become  the distributing point for theWest-Fork  country. It will then be the metropolis  of one of the biggest among-the big  mining  camps, of British Columbia.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  Held Its Regular Meeting on Monday Evening.  A Short Session.  The regular meeting ��� of the City  Council was held in the courthouse^ on  Monday evening.

At a meeting of the directors of the  Sailor Company, held in Toronto recently, Messrs. T. A. Crane, Dr. J. A.  Stevenson, J. B. McArthur, C. R.  Watts, Fred. Denver, and W. C. Fox  were present. ' The secretary of the  Company reported that the whole of  the issue of the stock had been oversubscribed, and upon his report the  directors decided that no more stock  would be issued.
