THE MINUTES  ARE  MUTILATED  At the Dictation of the mayor���He Insisted on  Moving an Amendment Before the Minutes  Were Adopted���The Electric Light System.  A City Engineer Appointed.  The   regular   meeting was held on  Monday  eyening, with  the  mayor in  the chair and all the members present.  After the clerk had read the minutes  of the previous regular and the special  meeting,    Mayor    Hardy    arose   and  stated that before, the  minutes were'  adopted, he wished to amend the resolution awarding the advertising contract to the Boundary Creek Printing  and   Publishing   company.     He  took  action under clause 12 of the Municipal  Clauses   act,  which gives the mayor  *. power to  intervene , within one month  ���'"'from the time of the adoption of a by-law; resolution or proceeding of coun-  A cil.    His amendment was to the effect  ���that the city enter into a contract with  '.' the Boundary Creek Printing andPub-  ;' lishing company, conditional upon the  "company   agreeing to  charge  at  the  ���/rate of once   a   week,   unless needed  i.more   than   once   a   week,   and   that  !��� the company be granted  two days  in  " which   to   decide   the    matter.     The  " mayor continuing, said that that thing  ���'over   there, called   the   editor  of the  ;��� Boundary Creek Times, in his letter to  the council,,insinuates, that the oaths  ���   of the people around this board cannot  'i be depended on.    He would sooner rely  ". on their word than on   the oath of that  ��� thing.   .He would . not. like to.accept  tender withbjut entering into an agreement with those gentlemen'.'   He heard  also   they _propose   starting   a daily.  ' They'��� may' charge   us   for   inserting  notices in every issue. ..Another reason the mayor..had for  doubting this  man's veracity,' was that he came here  - and published whatsuited himself.    It'  has g'one this  far, .that  the editor has  dictated to his manager.'. All the other  tenders had the name of D. C. Ross to  them, and the manager told him more  than once   that he was compelled to  make over to the editor.   If the council  wished ..to  accept   his  amendment he  would be very glad to have them do so;  if not, he would have to  veto the reso-  '..lution.    . . o '  Alderman Wood thought the agree-'  ment had been closed .with the Times  company, and the number of insertions  could be afterwards arranged tor. The  company would doubtless be instructed ���  how many times an advertisement vjas  to appear.  Alderman Sutherland moved that  the amendment suggested by the mayor  be adopted as read. .:  Alderman Galloway  regretted very ���������  9S  Thursday, Friday and Saturday,  March 30, 31 and April L  IE Of BUS,  CI WALK, SKIRT Bfiffi.

He condemned the action of  the mayor in getting up in his place  to in dulge in personalities.  Mayor Hardy���You must stick to the  amendment, Alderman Galloway. Your ���  remarks are personal.  Alderman Galloway���And what were  yours ? . ��� ���'"  Mayor Hardy���I gave reasons. I  must call you to order. You will have  to speak to the amendment.  Alderman Galloway���How would  you like if some one at the other end|of  the table had called you to-order. I  will -speak to the amendment and to  this, too. The Boundary Creek Times  company has alwaks been fair in their  dealings with the council. They always did their work reasonably and  satisfactorily and are entitled to more  consideration than abuse from the  mayor.  Mayor   Hardy���You  paid  more' for .  your printing than   any  other  city in  British Columbia.  Alderman Galloway, continuing, said  that the manager, of the Boundary  v' Creek Times had sent in a letter to the  council which gave a yery explicit explanation "of the whole matter. The'���  ��� mayor's reasons for.; his course are  very slim and. trifling.. After accepting' a tender he wants: to pay for one  insertion, although inserted twice.'  Alderman   'Cropley    seconded .the  amendment; suggested by  the mayor  and moved by  Alderman   Sutherland.-  Alderman   Galloway  moved  that the  minutes be adopted  as read, but the  amendment   was     carried    and    the  minutes as amended were then adopted'  oil motion of Alderman Sutherland.  ���'���'���' Messrs. Prihgle & Whiteside,  writT,  ing; on behalf of the Greenwood Water--  " power company,.reported that their engineer had estimated the  cost of plant  '  at'Boundary Falls as $43,600, and this,  together, with cost of purchasing power,  ''was a-much  larger expenditure' thin  was at first estimated'by the company."  They were not in ' a position to deal  with the council at the prices suggested .  at a previous meeting; !/.���'.���  J. K. Johnson, city clerk of Grand  Forks, forwarded a schedule of prices  charged there. >:;They ranged from SI  a month for one 16-candle power light  to 50 cents a month when 50 similar  lights were taken. The plant was  credited with $10 a month for each arc  light. The prices were low but thev  plant was paying. ;  Tenders for. excavating government  street were r<.ceived\_'as. follows: R.  Tolvick, 72 cents per cubic yard; A.  McKinnon, 75 cents without city plant  and 73 with city plant; Thos. Sullivan, 80 cents, and Geo. Ward, 65 cents.  The latter tender was accepted.  The treasurer reported that there  was a shortage of S132.90 to meet the  interest on last year's loan. The  deficit will be taken from the general  fund and the amount, $1,500, sent to  Montreal. The finance committee was  instructed to invest sinking fund, acting under instructions from the city,  solicitor.  J. W. Nelson was granted the use of  cars and rails for excavating the big  cut on Silver street. He is to pay two  cents per yard, but one cent is to be  refunded if he puts tlie system in  proper repair.  Applications for the position of city  engineer were received from F. D.  Boullett, C. W. H. Sansom, L..E. Corn-  stock and W. Smith. The latter received the . appointment. He is a  Scotch engineer with good references.  His salary will be $10 a day for the  first ten days, and t8 a day for any  days in excess of ten in each month.  The Columbia telephone, board' of  health and temporary loan by-laws  were advanced a stage.  , Alderman Cropley gave notice that  at next meeting he would introduce a  by-law authorizing the borrowing of  $30,000 for improvements.  The council adjourned until Wednesday evening.  Mr. Hoffman .will shortly let a contract for sinking a 100-foot shaft on  the St. Lawrence, adjoining the Mother  Lode. He and his associates intend  doing considerable work on this property before organizing a company.  When the 100-foot shaft is completed  drifts will be run at that level.  Miss Bettie Moft'at arrived from  Rossland last week to accept the position of stenographer in Messrs. Pringle  & Whiteside's otli-c. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  7,  H.

'Thk annual-report  of the  manager  '-������"'of tlie" Brandon ' and _ Golden   Crown  company,   which  .appeared    in   The  :"     Times   last  weekj   makes   interesting  '���'��� ''���'   and encouraging'reading.    It. is .very  satisfactory to'know th.it ..success  can  '������->'���* attend the"efforts"of Canadians exploit-  c ',;-in'g-"'a'"Canadian'"pYpperty.    It   was*, a  ; -    :commbri'saying-''afew  years  ago.that  American money ;and Americanenter-  ���'-'���' prise and British capital.were required  to   develop, the  mineral resources of  Ba.itish  Columbia,    The. Brandon and  Golden .Crown company was  incorpor-  _ ";, a ted by  Canadians ;. the greater-, portion of the stbck.sold was purchased by  '���".Canadians, and to-day   the property is  on a sure and permanent basis..     ���  'Z . The people of the  country   have not  '"only    demonstrated: -. that  .they -can  operate properfiesan '"their own country  ....but they.are assuming' the   aggressive  >.; uml are beginning to acquire'the'very  best ventures across the line. It is  principally Canadian capital which is  purchasing' the great Republic mine,  and it is quite possible that other  American properties will pass under  the control of the shrewd easterner.  After all, the mining- business requires���the experience which bring-s  knowledge. The Americans had secured millions from the mountains of  California, Colorado and other states  long before the mineral resources of  Southern British Columbia were  known.' They were ready to invest  their money in new'ventures, while the  Canadian investor was timid because  mining- enterprises were new to him.  To use a slang- expression, " he has  caught on," and will no longer allow  his American cousin to gobble all the  best thing's in the mining'world.  FAKE DISPATCHES.  The gifted and versatile newspaper  liar is quite active these days. Last  week he sent out from Vancouver a  graphic description of a pitched battle  near the Alaskan boundary line in  which several Canadians sacrificed  their lives to the vengeance of infuriated Americans, because of the passage of the placer mining exclusion  act. The despatch received the proper  amount of padding- and scare heads  from the yellow journals of New York  and other cities. The governments of  both countries became alarmed. The  ^conservative newspaper proffered advice and'then it was discovered that  the whole thing- was a fake pure arid  simple."  .Coming nearer home, the Rossland  Miner showed its great interest in the  City of Greenwood by denouncing- the  Canadian Pacific Railway company's  dastardly attempt to ruin the city by  starting- an opposition town two miles  away. The editorial was based on  on correspondence received from its  Greenwood correspondent. The cor-'  respondence was either manufactured  in the Rossland office to furnish material for the editdrial, or the Greenwood correspondent was drawing- on  his imag-ination. The C. P. R. has  not started a new town near Greenwood nor does it intend to do so.      '  The Canadian Pacific Railway company, while it is prepared to assist  Greenwood, not'because it has any  special love for. the city, but because  the company's interests are promoted  by such a course, is no laggard in the"  faking business- , The company was  annoyed by the action of the Victoria  board of trade-in favoring- the Corbin  charter. In order to nullify the effects  of the board's res.olution, the-C. P. R.  wires carried free to every newspaper  in Canada; a. notice to the effect that  the meeting- was packed by Corbin's  supporters, and the resolution does not  represent public opinion in Victoria.  The fact is that the meeting- was the  largest ever held by the board, and  that it was public opinion which forced  the board to favor thecompetitiveroad.  BOUNDARY  CREEK   LAW ASSOCIATION.  " The Lawyers of Greenwood Organize, and Ask  for-Certaln Requirements.  .'; Greenwood has attained sufficient  prominence to possess a Bar Association of its-own.. The legal "gentlemen  met about a' week ago and organized the  Boundary Creek Bar Association, with  I. H;* Hallett'' as president and A. M.  Whiteside as'" secretary. ,  " Acommittee was appointed to urge  upon the'Government the necessity of  having a Supreme Court Registry in  Greenwood, and; of. a sittings^ of a  Supreme, Court.'judge here fhis year,  owing to the number of important  Supreme Court cases pending. Another  committee was appointed to work, with  the other barristers' associations  throughout the Province, with a view  to simplifying and modernizing the  County Court rules, which are now a  relic-of dark   ages.   ������ ; ; ���   Money Made i;  IsfoiieySaved '���'':"���  ���:.���������:,-���;  '���-=-   ��������  l��'%  You", can  make" money  by  buying;your;   >-:J\;  .   . .GROCERIES.

His Strong Arguments in Favor of the Corbin  r    Charter.  At the recent meeting; of the Victoria  board  of  trade,  Mr.   Bodwell, ' Q.   C,  made a strong 'Speech   in   favor of' the  Corbin charter.    He  dealt  with  some  entirely incorrect views, editorially expressed in   the   Colonist.    The road as  it   was  projected,   said  he, started   at  Northport, in the State of Washington,  and went to  Cascade City, across the  boundary   line,   crossed   the  boundary  line again   at  Carson   City,   and  then  followed   the   Kettle   river   westward  into the Boundao- Creek district,where  it terminated.    This   assuredly did not  bring   both   termini   in  the   State of  Washington, as   the Colonist declared.  The paper  mentioned  had  said the  road was to be built from  Marcus to  Republic.    This was   quite   incorrect,  or, as Mr. Bodwell said, it was another  misstatement   of   fact,   indicating    a  grievous misapprehension  of the subject.    There were  several mines forming a group  at   Republic,   and -if  this  contemplated Kettle River road were  built, it is quite probable that a^branch  line would be run down  to  Republic;  this did not  by  any  means  indicate  that: the road  would  be  continued to  Marcus or Spokane.   It was far more  to "be  anticipated  that the ores of the  Republic camp would find their way to  British Columbia for treatment.  They were of such a character that"  they required to be mixed with the  same fluxes as the ores of Boundary  Creek camps, and hence if the branch;  to Republic were built on the completion of this present projected road, it  was to be expected that a great part of  the Republic ores would be sent to  British Columbia for smelting. There  was, he would say positively, and with  a full knowledge of Mr. Corbin's plans,  absolutely no such scheme in view as  building a road from Republic to Marcus or anywhere else to take the' ores  of the. Boundary country . south���although as ��� he had said, Mr. Corbin did  contemplate a .branch down Curlew  creek to the Republic camp, and the  hauling of the Republic ores north for  treatment.  Mr. Corbin's whole purpose in the  matter was essentially businesslike,  and had the charter been granted last  year^the road would by this time have  been completed and in operation.  Tracing the route proposed to be followed, Mr. Bodwell showed that out of  a total length of 70 miles, about 30 or  33 miles were in British Columbia. It  was Mr. Corbin's plan, he reiterated,  to build and operate the road with his  own money, as a purely commercial  speculation. And therefore he deserved every assistance an encouragement at the hands of British Columbians and all interested in the development of their country.  At present all freights going jin'to  the Boundary Greek country had either  to be teamed 'from Marcus or else  ' hauled in wagons from Penticton���a  wagon haul in any event.- Under such  conditions the cost of getting in supplies was necessarily great. As to the  resources of the. boundary country,  they were indeed magnificent. ..The  amount of ore existing there was  something enormous. Men'well qualified to express an authoritative opinion  declared that in a :very few years the  output of the Boundary Creek country  would be more than that of the Kootenay and the Slocan together. And.  when it was remembered that Kootenay alone produced over a million and  a half last year, one might gather a  faint idea of the.;immensity of the  Boundary Creek country's resources. :  The ore of the Boundary Country is  as a general rule low grade���not so  valuable as the ore of Kootenay, but  in infinitely greater bodies. And in  this connection the fact should not be  lost sight of that the- development of  a low grade ore district was infinitely  more advantageous to a country generally than that of a high grade ore  district. More men had .'necessarily to  be employed, and more money was thus  expended for supplies. The miner was  everywhere known, as a good spender,  and.his average earning of $300 per  year was almost always spent at once.  The result was a favorable distribu-  tioiii a large population, and the prosperity of all business interests.  But the ore of the Boundary Creek  country, being low grade, could not  possibly be developed as it should be,  and in a manner profitable-to the claim  owners and beneficial to the country,  unless cheap transportation was obtained for the introduction of machinery and the bringing in of supplies. Otherwise it was only possible  for the highest grade ore propositions  to be opened up.  And herein lay the danger to the  country of'allowing it to be controlled  by one railway company. A railway  company found a better profit naturally in hauling a limited quantity of  freight at a high rate than in hauling  large quantities at a low figure, and  without the incentive of competition it  would assuredly make a rate that  would only permit the operation of  those mines that could pay good freight  rates and still make money out of their  ores.  And as to the Boundary Cieek  country particularly it was certain th;it  if a road did not go in from the south,  the Canadian Pacific railway would  continue in control.

The Grand  Trunk railway, the Canadian Pacific  railway's national; rival, could not  build into the country through either  the Kicking Horse or the Crow's Nest  pass, nor could any other company  build in from the coast, for the Canadian Pacific railway would effectually  tie up the system at one end.  Kamloops Election:Trial.  Kami.oops,' March 22.���The election  petition trial here before Mr. Justice.  Walkem was resumed at 1 p. m. to-day,  but was adjourned until to-morrow, as  a witness for the petitioner was absent.  Mr. .Deane then had a majority of four  over Mr. Martin. Mr. Justice Walkem  decided that the .votes rejected by the  returning officer, on account of being  marked on back and front, were good,  inasmuch as they clearly indicated the  intention of the voter, notwithstanding the mark on the back was in direct  variance with the rules laid down in  the statute. This brought Mr. Deane's  majority up to the old mark of four  ahead of his opponent. This ends this  branch of the case. Next on the programme will be the bribery and corruption cases.  A later dispatch states that judgment, with costs, has been given  against Mr. G. B. Martin.  T  nil III  Tel. Main 172 ;   11-12 Ziegler Block.     -.  SP O K A N E   ���i#AiH.

"The Canadian Pacific is planning  to build into the State of Washington.  It is planning lines to tap Republic  camp, to touch Chelan Falls, to reach  Spokane and to extend to the Sound at  Seattle and to the Willamette at Portland.  " The American li:us have crossed  the,border and entered the British ter-  ritorp; the Can:idi.in' .Pacific is preparing to carry the < war into the  enemy's count y and will . fiiyht for the  " trade of Washington and Oregon.','  The speaker was Martin M.-irk'esoii,'.  who for two years has been one of the,  enterprising business men of S;indon,  B. C. So impressed is he with the  truth of the statements made above  that he has sold out his interests at  Sandori, given a farewell banquet to  his associates, come to Spokane, and  yesterday started west to the Chelan  country with tlie intention of engaging in business at some point near the  beautiful falls where the waters of the  lake flow down to the Columbia.  " I base my statement not on rumor,',  continued Mr. Markeson,." but on facts  stated to me by high officials of the  Canadian Pacific ; they reiiize as'do  few other people the tremendous power  that can be obtained from the neglected Chelan Falls ; they see the advantages of tapping Spokane, ,the  chief city of the Inland Empire, and  the future great; cities of the North  Pacific coast. I am given plain assurance that they are now planning to  cross the boundary and compete for  the trade of Washington.  " No, they do not intend to: begin  any extensions in this direction this  year; the building of new lines on the  other side of the boundary is engaging  all their efforts at the present time.  But; when these lines are"completed,'"  the plan, is to cross the border and ;  start down''-. the: west side of the Columbia.  "As to the exact route chosen I will  not attempt to make predictions, but  the route will lead to the great falls of  the Chelan, where the Canadian Pacific  officials expect to develop a great  water power. As I understand it, this  is the point where they propose to,  have smelters erected to handle the.  ores from Republic and other points :  on the Colville reserve.  "Then the Canadian Pacific proposes to swing west from Chelan and  and touch Seattle and Portland. Spokane will not be left out, either, for  the Canadian Pacific realizes the commanding position of. this city and has  determined to put its track in here,too."  The story of Mr. Markeson is in the  direct line of a report that has been  quietly circulated in Spokane for  several weeks to the effect that the Canadian Pacific is planning to leave its  British line near Midway and run by  as direct a route as possible to Republic camp and Spokane. The line chosen,  according to tha popular report, would  come into this city from the west,  either along the old Seattle, Lake  Shore' and Eastern tracks or along  nearly parallel lines.  It is also current report that the Canadian Pacific has become a lively  bidder for the franchise held by D. C.  Corbin, permitting him to build a line  across the Colville reserve.���Spokane  Chronicle.  The following resolution was defeated at the recent meeting- of the  Victoria board of trade by a large majority :  .Whereas, in the opinion of this  board it is the true policy of Canada  to further such measures as will bring  about smelting and refining of Canadian ores, within the Dominion, thereby building up' Canadian towns, and  furnishing markets for Canadian agricultural products and merchandise as  well as labor for our own people ;  And whereas, this board has already  affirmed this principle in connection  with the leading smelting industry;  And whereas, tlie evident object of  the proposed Kettle River railway is  identical with that of the Red Mountain railway, namely, the carrying of  ores out of the country to be smelted  in the United States ;  And whereas, such exportation of  ores leads to a corresponding importation of merchandise, as is> shown by  the trade returns of Kootenay ;  And whereas, the necessity for safeguarding Canadian interests in respect  to smelting is emphasised by there-  cent formation of a smelter trust in  the United States with a capital of  565,000,000.  And whereas, the Canadian Pacific  railway is now constructing a line of  railway from Robson to Penticton,  bounding all points proposed to be  reached by the proposed Kettle River  railway ;  And whereas, the Dominion government has reserved the right to regulate  and control freight rates and tolls on  all Canadian Pacific lines, leased,  owned or controlled south of the main  line in British Columbia, which power  precludes all possibility of excessive  rates;  Therefore, be it resolved that this  board is of opinion that parliament  should not sanction the construction  of any railway from the United States  into the southern section of British.Co-  lumbia until our interior towns and  smelting and refining centers have  been- firmly established and brought  into close relation with the Canadian  agricultural and commercial centers.

[ft-  Gives His Impressions of the Boundary Creek  Country and the Similkameen.  J. L,  Parker,  M;  E.y has returned  from  an  extended, visit throug-h   the  Kettle River valley and the country to  the west thereof. "Mr. Parker went as  far west as Keremeos in  the Similkameen valley.   This valley, he says, is"  a very pleasant one,  possessing- as it  does a  temperate  climate -and .'where  the winter lasts only for three months.  It has pastoral; agricultural and mining- resources, sufficiently 'developed to  determine their fall value.   The  ores  are copper-gold,' the copper being- in  the form of sulphides.    There is-some  native copper.   There  was no'snow in  the valley when Mr. Parker was there,  while   at Camp McKinney  there  was  four feet of. snow.    At Fairview there  was no show.and the climate was mild.  Mr. Parker stopped . at Fairview, and  inspected the Stemwinder.    The shaft  is down   175   feet- and there are two  veins   on  the' property.    These  veins  are 7 feet wide and have been opened  for   a    considerable-  distance.���������   The  manag-ement   does   not consider, that  j   the ore will run over $6 or $7 to the ton.  With veins of large size, a ilOO-stamp  null, and a-little' more development,.it  seems certain, said Mr.  Parker, that  thUproperty will  undoubtedly yield a  large   profit:'-The; Oro' Fino,to  the  north   of '{he-���Stemwinder; has * some ~  promising veins,of gold ore. The .veins  are of  about., the same width  as  are  those of the Stemwinder.    A 10 stamp  mill is being' placed on  the property.  He says that the Tin  Horn, the-Stem-  wmder, the townsite of Fairview, the  large hotel at Fairview and 400 acres  .of coal lands have;.been placed in one  company; and    incorporated   with   a  capital stock of $1,000,000, divided into  25-cent shares..    .    ..'  Mr. Parker says he found that Camp  McKinney was a very lively place. A  number of Spokane and Toronto capitalists have g'one info the camp and,  are'paying $10,000 to $20,000 and also  from" 200,000 to . 300,000 'shares for  claims.. Most of these- companies are~-  actively at work and the result is that  there is a great deal of life, and bustle  there..' While atrCamp McKinney; Mr.  Parker says;. he heard good reports of  the Waterloo. It is considered another  Cariboo and-is- supposed- to have the  extensions- of the :-.v.eins. of the latter.'  Strikes of-free, g��id.,are:-said to be a  common occurrence in the Waterloo.  Work is progressing on the Minnehaha  and o.ther:-properties-, with considerable  energy'and the camp-promises in time'  to be one of .considerable importance.  At Rock'-Greek a lb-stamp mill is  being erected on a promising property  that is owned: by-.a- Wyoming syndicate, headed by Mr. Patersou...  AtiMidway: the people anticipate-the  erection of a snielter and. are building-,  their >:b,opes  on  that proposed event.  Mr. Parker says he cannot  see why a  smelter should not be erected  at that--  ���poiiii.-k- <=.'"���;���  There is intense  activity in railway  construction  between  Greenwood: and  Midway; and it is anticipated  that the.,  g-radingfwill be finished in about three ��  months.;,   ~y-:-  {    -J- . .__���/���  At  Greenwood Mr.   Parker visited V  several 6f the  mines in  that  vicinity i  and was astonished at the splendid re- .  serves of ore to  be found  there.     At  the   Stemwinder   and   Brooklyn   fine  shaft houses have   been  erected and  shaftsjire.bejng\sunk. under the superintendence- 0f  Frank Robbins.    The  ore   in -these   properties,   which    are  owned by Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann,  '  is chalcopyrite.    Some portions of the  ore are, of -course, better-, than others,  but the averagg seems to be of a high-  grade,:an'd the veins of sufficient size  to ultimately make great mines put of  both these properties. Mr. Parker says  he walked through the tunnel in the  Old Ironsides for a distance of between  300 and 400 feet and also .went through  the other workings. There is a million tons of ore in sight. The management alleges that this ore body aver  ag-es $22 to the ton. This would make  the ore body worth $22,000,000;: If the  ore averages anywhere near what the  management claims, it will/make the  mine yield many, dividends- for' the  stockholders. ���'.'-, - ��� ���: '������-;. ���":'������ ;- "���  I did hot visit the Knob' Hill workings, as I intended to, but passed over  the surface and saw some dumps with  plenty of ore in that vicinity.

JVl'Klnney.  The mining- industry sometimes deals  justly with the hardy prospector. Chas.  Ditz, who washed the gravel of Rock  Creek in the early sixties searching  for the yellow metal, and lived on  Kettle River'since that time, was one  of the principals in a monetary transaction, which took place in Greenwood  on Tuesday. There were present Geo.  R. Naden, Thos. McDonnell, R. M.  McEntire, H. T. Ceperley, Nels. La-  plan te, and Mr. Ditz. To the latter  was made the final payment on the  53ailor, and the others secured their  shares of the proceeds of the sale of  the Sailor to Toronto people. Everybody appeared satisfied. Mr. Ditz received 515,000,- and the Greenwood syndicate about 540,000. Mr. Naden has  received instructions to push the sale  of lots in M'Kinney. The Eastern  syndicate intend expending- considerable   money  on   the  townsite.  ...of...the enterprise is Capt. E. Von Hart-  matin, who arrived in the city from  Vancouver a few.days  ago.    He was  ���.for several years in charge of a large  commissary department in. connection  with the German Army. The Captain  has been a resident of Vancouver for  several years.. Shortly after reaching  here, he secured from Messrs. Portmann  ;���.���& Hurting-er an option on the  Elkhorn  ..Brewery Company's plant and building's for $15,000. He at once proceeded  to reorganize' the concern. The new  company will be known as the Greenwood City Brewing- Company. The  capital is 525,000, divided into 2,500 ten  dollar shares. The captain placed  1,250 shares on the local market, as he  is anxious that business men of the  city should participate in the profits.  Mr. Bielenburg- has interested himself  in .the concern, and in a few hours succeeded in securing- $6,000. The balance  of the 1,250 will likely be taken locally.  ;Mr. Hartinger, who is an A-l brewer,  will retain his interest in the establishment, and will have charge of the  brewing. As soon as the company is  organized, Capt. Von Hartmann, the  manager, will establish bowling alleys,  picnic grounds, dancing pavilions, etc.  Elkhorn hill will be beautified, and  changed into a park. No liquor will  be sold on the grounds. Capt. Von  Hartmann is confident that the enterprise will prove a profitable one. He  guarantees 25 per cent profits at first,  and believes these will be increased as  the business extends. He is anxious  that local hotel men should become  shareholders, so that they may participate in the general profits arising from  the sale of beer at the grounds.  ^^.  OF EVERY DESCRIPTION.

Heinze,  secretary of that corporation, $250 for  contempt of court. The officers of the  Ore Purchasing- company were cited to  appear to show cause why they should  not be punished for failing- to regard  the injunction of the district; court of  Silver Bow county, restraining them  from working the leased portion of the  Rarus mine, under the Pennsylvania  Lode's lines. The Boston and Montana . company claimed that the Ore  Purchasing comyany sub leased the  property to men in their employ when  the injunction was issued, believing  that by so doing they would escape the  consequences of operating the property and that the new leasers, whose  lease was fictitious, had since then removed 33,000 worth of ore 'daily.    The  supreme court was satisfied that.the  Ore Purchasing company had but  sought to escape the injunction, and  declared the officers of the company to  be in contempt of court. In severe  words the chief justice reprimanded  them and ordered them to pay their,  fines at once or be committed to the  Lewis and Clarke county jail. They  paid, arid the new leasers have ceased  work in the disputed ground. F. Aug.  Heinze was included in the order to  appear, but as he is sick- in Butte, the  supreme court will take up his case later  NOTICE.

There were a couple of days during-  last week that were quiet in stock  circles, but the other days were exceedingly lively, and this made the  week as a whole about up to the aver-  , ag-e. One feature of the week was the  larg-e orders received for several of the  stocks of the leading- companies, and  the large number,of .the shares of some  of the cheaper grades' of stocks that  were sold. In point of numbers Rath-  mullens easily led the procession, and  conservative estimates are that 200,000  shares chang-ed hands. That is, in  some instances, the ' same block of  stock changed hands several times,  and were counted in order to make up  the 200,000 shares. On Tuesday two  firms of brokers received orders for  75,000 shares each. These could not be  entirely filled, and by last night about  all the available shares . for sale were  -^-cleaned up in this market. Insiders  are 'purchasing" the shares and then  there are some who bought expecting-  to make a quick turu. These shares  advanced from 3}4 to 4J4 cents during'  the week. It is understood that a market, is to be made for these shares in  both Toronto and Montreal.���Rossland  Miner.    ������.'.'. ; "  A Railway Strike. .  Early on Thursday, says a dispatch  from Bonner's Ferry, the employees  of the Kootenay VTalley railway began  began to arrive there, and for the first  time was it realized that a strike-was  on. The strike started on Thursday  morning at Camp-Totihey, which is located near the British line. About  fifty "persons, who- were employed at  this camp, left their work, armed with  clubs, axe and pick handles, and gams,  and compelled every g-ang- of men to  quit work and join the gang of strikers.,  No time was. given the men' to goto  the camp and' get .their coats and  blankets. At one camp they were re^  fused food, and they at once proceeded  to demolish it. A mass meeting- was  held by the strikers, when a committee  was appointod to arrange for lodging-  and food. Officers were also appointed to attempt to arrive at an  agreement with the employers. . Thejy  demand a raise from $1.75 to S2.50,  and agree to pay 34 per week for board,  and 50 cents per month hospital fees.  It is reported that a poll tax was exacted from.each one, which also added  to precipitate affairs. :  The people of Britis'h Columbia want  the Kettle River Valley to be built  into the Boundary- country, and' will  have their wish carried if they will do  as Manitoba did and pay no attention  to the howling" of the members of tlie  C.

Therefore, the construction of the  Kettle River Valley railway will; be; of.  help to the residents of Southern British Columbia, and it must be gi.ven a  charter.���Rossland Miner.

The act repealing unearned subsidies to railways was passed by the  large majority of 20 to 13. The attorney-general's remarks, dealing with  the V. V. & E., will be read with interest.    He said in part: "      '  " As to section 3 of this bill, the late  government   had   purported   to  enter  into   certain   contracts   with   Messrs.  Mackenzie & Mann  with reference  to  the construction of a line of road from  Penticton  to   Boundary  Creek;   from  Penticton to Point Roberts, 200 miles ;  and froni an ocean port in British Columbia to Teslin lake, 400 miles.    As a  matter of fact, no such  contracts had  been  entered  into.     There had been  what purported  to be contracts,   but  they were voided by the insertion of a  condition that they should be of no  effect unless in the one case a subsidy  ' satisfactory to Mackenzie & Mann,'  ������ and in the other case of S6,000 a mile,  should be obtained from the Dominion  government. As the statutes contained  no authority whatever for the  making  of such conditional contracts  the  bargain had  been   void  from the  beginning.    The matter had certainly been  understood   by   Mackenzie   &,  Mann,  while the late government could hardly  help   understand   with such a clause  staring it in the face/   The real reason  for the existence of these bogus  and  meaningless contracts was that there  had been an election  pending and capital was required to enter into the contest.     These contracts had   resulted,  and upon theni the  ex-leader of the  government and  the  ex-attorney-general had made  most unfair and  misleading statements, assuring the voters  that contracts had been made that were  a guarantee of  the construction of the  railways at a very early date.    These  gentlemen could not but know at the  time  that their statements were not  based on fact and were  only intended  to delude the electors so as  to secure  restoration to power."  Mr. Speaker suggested to the attorney-general that he was travelling .beyond the scope of the discussion.  Hon. Mr. Martin insisted that he was .  referring to matters which were within  the statutes and it was necessary to  refer to these matters to make the object and scope of the bill now before  the house understood. Continuing, he  said that of course the members of the  house were much more familiar than  he with the discussions which had  taken place in the house and at Ottawa  and on the public platforms regarding  these railways, but he was tolerably  familiar with the?. V. & E., under  which charter it is supposed Mackenzie & Mann proposed to construct the  line to Penticton and from there to  Boundary Creek.' There was undoubtedly a feeling among the people of that  district that they would like to see a  railroad constructed along- that course,  and no doubt there was a necessity for  opening up the Fraser valley lying to  the south of the Fraser river, and any  railway that would serve to bring the  coast cities into closer relations with  the Kootenay towns would bcwclcomed,  but unfortunately the matlef had not  been dealt with exactly in  that spirit.  A great deal of discussion  had  taken  place at Ottawa regarding the building  of the line from Robson  to Penticton,  and also in  regard to  building  that  towards the coast.    There had been  a  contest at Ottawa between Mr. Heinze  and the V. V. & E. people,  and it became   evident   to everyone that that  contest was not one in which  the welfare of the people of this province cut  any particular figure, but/was entirely  a question between  two promoters, or  rather between two rival  sets of promoters, as to who could get  something  but of the charters.    It was announced  that these two parties having railway  charters which had cost them nothing  except a few hundred dollars in  fees,  had come to an agreement by which  the spoils were to be divided ; but one  of them frankly announced that he had  been unable to come' to  an  agreement  because he had not received  sufficient  of the spoils.  That is a niatter against  which   the   present   government   had  uniformly fought when  in . opposition;  and  was   a   matter which   had  been  much   discussed  in  the ��late election,  and the principle upon which the arguments were based was that no man  should be allowed to make money out  of the. simple promotion of railways  without investing any money, but that  ���whatever was done in railway promoting should be done by substantial capitalists.     Mr. .Martin   said   he  had   a  great deal of experience  with people ���  who have held railway charters, and it  had   invariably   been  his experience,  and   the experience of the  people of  Canada, that the system  of granting  a bonus to a company of men  without  capital had   resulted   in   the   railway  being- held back and not built as soon  as it otherwise would have been and in  the public money being diverted into  the pockets of men who had done nothing.    That is the kind of  thing that  must stop, that ought to be stopped.  No money which is given by this house  should be used in that  way,   and  that  state of things has given  rise to the  idea, and it is  a, growing one  in  the  Dominion, that the State should build,.  own   and  manage  its  own   railroads,  even though the railroad be run at a  loss, for legislation can   be  brought to  bear to bring it in the interests of the  people and   not   allow   it   to   be  run  against the interests of and,   to  use a  common expression, for the purpose of  " cinching " the people it is  supposed  to benefit.

The Dominion Government has decided to construct a telegraph line to  connect the Yukon territory with British Columbia.  The output of gold from the Klon-  dylce and British Columbia has raised  Canada to the fifth place in the list of  gold-producing countries. While the  United States shows a greatly increased  output for '98, it is second to the Transvaal, South Africa. The five leading  gold-producing countries for '98, according to figures recently published;  are :���Transvaal, 573,476,600; United  States, 364,300,000 ; Australia, 561,480,-  763; Russia, $25,136,994; Canada,  $14,190,000.  C G. Dixon, the present general  freight and passenger agent of the  S. F. & N., who was appointed to that  .position from that of general agent of  the Great Northern, is, according to  rumor, to be sent across the river to a  city office over which he will preside  \yith the title of assistant general  freight agent of the Great Northern,  haying jurisdiction over freight matters on a considerable portion of the  main line as well as over those on the  S. F. & N. He is especially valuable  to the road for his knowledge of the  ore transportation business into which  the Great Northern has gone so extensively since it prohibited the Northern  Pacific and Q. R. & N. handling any  ores from the Kootenay.���Spokesman  Review.  Assessment Act and Provincial Revenue Tax Act.

During the past few mouths there  has developed a considerable trade  between the wholesale merchants of  Nelson and the retail dealers of Boundary Creek. As a result every freight  train on the Nelson and Fort Shep-  pard which pulls out of Nelson has a;  carload of mixed .-merchandise consigned from Nelson to Boundary points  and the general opinion is that it is a  trade which will continue to grow.  As matters stand at present Spokane is as active a competitor "of Nelson's for the trade of the Boundary  Creek points as it can ever be. All the  g-oods which are sold in Nelson for  Boundary Creek have to be routed via  ,, Bossburg or Marcus. To reach these  points at present the wholesale merchants have no advantage whatever  over their rivals in Spokane, and if  trading through Bossburg and Marcus  at present, the merchants of Spokane  cannot successfully compete with the  merchants of Nelson for the trade of  Boundary-Creek, they will be as much  unable to compete when Nelson and  Spokane each have all rail connection  with Boundary points. ���'  , There was not one wholesale mer-  . chant interviewed b}' the Tribune representative to-day who did not readily  admit, that from the standpoint of the  local trader in Boundar3' Creek, there  was every advantage to be expected  from the construction of the Kettle  River Valley railway, and there was  not a wholesale merchant in Nelson  who was willing to ��� say, that from the  standpoint of a wholesale trader doing  business in Nelson with Boundary  Creek, there was any prospect of damage, to the legitimate trade of Nelson  wholesale houses. There is no joracti-  cal difference between the railway  rates on goods laid down from the east  in either Spokane or Nelson. The  merchants, therefore, are upon equal  terms, and in the price quoted to the  Cobber will be the only difference. The  merchants who are willing to handle  the trade upon a'reasonable margin,  will secure it, and the only effect of  the building of the road will be that  the people of Boundary Creek will  have it in their power to prevent being  cinched. I  DThe wholesale merchants who hold |  that the building of the Kettle River  Valley road will be a distinct advantage to the wholesale trade of Nelson,  cite the obvious fact that the building  of the Kettle River Valley road will  give them railway competition to  Boundary Creek which will not be  -shared by the Spokane merchants.  Should   the   promoters  of the Kettle  River Valley railway be prevented  from building their road, Nelson will  have to depend wholly upon the Canadian Pacific railway. Not only will it  be in .the power of the Canadian Pacific to fix what rates it pleases, but it  could distribute goods for Boundary  Creek from any point along its line  which pleased it best. The Canadian  Pacific would have it in its power to  to make a large wholesale point of  Nelson, or it would fix the wholesale  ���point somewhere else. It is the complete surrendering- of themselves to  the Canadian Pacific railway which  some of the wholesale merchants do  not like.���Nelson Tribune.  Smelter Combine.  A dispatch from Pittsburg states  that one of the most gigantic combinations j'et attempted by commercial  organizations in the United States  has been completed. It is a consolidation of all the smelters and refineries  of precious metals in the United States.  The final move was the purchase of  the works of the Pennsylvania Lead  company of Pittsburg and the Pennsylvania Smelting- company's works at  Salt Lake, Utah. The price paid is  not made known. The capitalization  of the new combine will be S46,000,000.  Officers will be elected on April 1. It  is understood that that Ex-Governor  Grant of Colorado will' be president,  and Barton Sewell of Chicago is mentioned for vice-president. ,'���'���  The deal just closed has been under'  negotiation for several months. The  names of the firms in the combine follow: The Omaha and Grant Smelting  company, with works at Omaha, Denver and Durango, Colo.: the Consolidated Smelting and Refining company  of Kansas City, with works at Kansas  City, Leadville, Colo., and El Paso,  Tex.; the United States Smelting- and  Refining company of Chicago, with ���  works at Chicago, Pueblo, Colo.,  Helena and Great Palls, Mont.; the  Aurora Smelting and Refining company, with works at Aurora, 111.; the  Pueblo Smelting and Refining company, with works at Pueblo, Colo.; the  Philadelphia Smelting and Refining  company, with works at Pueblo, Colo.;  the Globe Smelting and Refining company, with works at Denver,_Colo.;  the Germania Smelting- and Refining  company, with works at Salt Lake  City; the Bi-Metallic Smelting company, with works at Leadville, Colo.;  the Pennsylvania Smelting company  of Salt Lake City, and the Pennsylvania Lead company of Pittsburg.  The Brooklyn Route.  The efforts of the C. P. R. to deliver  sreight into the Boundary country via  Brooklyn, are a fake���pure and simple.  As stated in the Record last week, the  contractor, Mr. Koch, or any other  man, was not likely to haul merchandise that 35 or 40 miles very long for  75 cents per hundred, and the Record  was right; The citation of one case is  sufficient. T. E. Mahaffy received a  shipment from Winnipeg last Monday,  that came via ��� Brooklyn (though ordered  via   Bossburg')   and   Mr.  Koch  charged two cents per pound for hauling from Brooklyn. It is- unnecessary  to add that Mr. Mahaffy was arid is  " much incensed at "this. It seems that  the , Greenwood merchants finally  agreed to pay two cents, although the  first rate from Greenwood was quoted  at one and a half cents, i Wonder how  they will feel when they receive a few  consignments with say a three cent  road freight rate attached ? The C. P.  R. is fast making enemies by this plan  of delivering metchandise to freighters, who can hold merchants up for  any figure they see fit. As stated in  the Record, if they" want business,  there is but one way to secure it, and  that is to quote a through rate to destination, guarantee the rate and control the freightingoutfits themselves.���  Cascade Record.

RANDOLPH STUART. J. C. HAAS,  Secretary. President.  Midway, H. C, January 27lh', 1899. 1.T1 BOITNPARY   CREEK   TIMES;  Prospectors Should Be Encouraged.  Upon the vocation of the prospector  the prosperity of the  mining- industry  must primarily "depend.   It is a pursuit  of  larg-e   expectations  and small rewards  and  is  maintained  chiefly   by  the activity, of the org-an  of hope that  . constantly enlivens the imagination of  the prospector with visionary bonansas  of high degree.    In proportion to their  numbers few professional  prospectors  ever realize their   hopes   and   attain  wealth,   although   dozens   of. paying-  properties may  have been  discovered  by them.    To the man who is proud of  his   attainments   the discovery   of  a  vein that subsequently, and  in other  hands, becomes a paying mine, brings  a   great   deal    of   satisfaction.     His  abilities are  demonstrated, even   if he  realizes small profit from the  investment of   time' and   effort.   Any.law  that will tend to discourage ' prospecting   for   minerals   by destroying the  vocation of   the  prospector will seriously   cripple   the   mining    industry.  The legislation proposed by  the Field  bill helps the pick and shovel prospector in that it shuts   out  the   "paper"  prospector, making   work on  a'claim  absolutely  necessary  for the holding  thereof,    and    thus    preventing   the  wholesale  staking   now  so  commonly  practiced.     Every   prospector should  have a perfect right ,to prospect upon  any piece of ground not being actually  prospected  or   developed  by  another.  The mining industry  as such  can be  encouraged in no better way  than to  give full scope and  a  free  field to the  hardy     prospector,     and    legislation  should at all times  tend  to lighten his  burdens.���Miner and Electrician.  Misleading the Public.  Two of the greatest papers in  Canada have been duped by some unscrupulous person interested in the  town of Grand Forks. The Toronto  Globe publishes a long article descriptive of the many advantages alleged to be possessed by the sad, sad  city by the Kettle river. The Vancouver Province being still more enterprising than its modest contemporary,  adorns the same article with a large  photo-engraving, under which is placed  the title "The City of Grand Forks,  B. C." The illustration might be  taken for a bird's-eye view of Minneapolis, but not for a view of Grand  Forks. The article and the illustration is a barefaced attempt to mislead  the public. The following paragraph  gives a fairly good idea of the wonderful imagination of the writer :  " Greenwood camp is probably the  principal mining center in the Boundary. Many people confound the camp  with the City of Greenwood, but most  of the claims are on the Grand Forks  watershed. Now, whereas the actual  distance to Greedwood City is somewhat shorter than to the latter point at  present, when the railroad is completed the advantage will be in favor  of Grand Forks, for a branch line will  be built following along tlie summit  which will connect with the main line  well on the Grand Forks slope. It is  just as well to mention this to correct  any erroneous idea which may prevail.  KETTLE   RIVER  MINING  DIVISION.
