Beecher���The Inspector of  Mines and the Jewel Accident���Canadian  Capital In Republic Camp���Mining Notes.  Writing about the recent investments by Canadian capitalists in Republic, the" Republic Miner asks:  " Where is tlie Canadian movement to  end as -it applies to Republic camp?  Are the Americans here to sell out as  they have done at Rossland and in the  Slocan country and are the Canadians  to own the principal mines here ? It  looks that way now. Toronto" and  Montreal are now great mining centers.  Both have at command vast capital for  investment in good mines wherever  those mines may be. The markets  have become cosmopolitan and international in character. The business  of mining with them has so far proved  immensely profitable. The largest  operators have gone about .their work  according-to the most approved modern  methods in mining. They employ the  very best mining experts that money  can secure, like Bernard McDonald,  Fritz Cirkel and John B. Hastings,  and so far they have made no important mistakes. The movement in Republic, as at Rossland and in the  Boundary country, is many millions to  the good, and we have reason Jx> be-,  lieve the movement is but just commenced. Before it is over it will revolutionize Canada and extend its influence  very far over, the United States. The  industrial change it has brought about  in British Columbia and all the Dominion is one of the notable spectacles  of recent years, the benefits of which  will be of incalcualable service to the  Canadians as a people.'!   -  W. FrHo'ney ' and D. H.  Beecher of  the   Winnipeg   were   in  the   city   on  Thursday.   Mr. Beecher- is  a prominent North Dakota banker and  knows  but- little  about mines,  excepting to  put money   in the Winnipeg with  a  very   good   chance   of   increasing   it  twenty-fold.   Mr* Beecher is enjoying  his trip in   the   mountains,  and last  week started out to prospect the Winnipeg on his own account.    His efforts  were crowned with success, for he succeeded    in    uncovering   a   brand-new  ledge of ore entirely different from the  other   Winnipeg   mine   ledges.      Mr.  Beecher brought down a sample which  he   is   having   assayed.    The   ore   is  similar in appearance to Summit camp  ore and is apparently rich  in  copper.  The new ledge has been  stripped for a  few feet.    Its width  has not been determined.    The Winnipeg .appears to  contain a series of rich ore veins.    If  the veins are not visible on the surface  they  are   encountered in   the   underground workings.    The discovery of a  strong ledge by Mr.  Beecher proves  conclusively   that experience does not  always count in  mining.    Mr.  Mcintosh thought he had  thoroughly prospected the surface of the Winnipeg,  but an  inexperienced Dakota banker  discovered what may prove the richest  ledge on the Winnipeg. Mr. Beecher is  very properly.elated at his discovery.  James McGregor, the provincial inspector of mines, visited the Jewel on  Wednesday. He thoroughly examined  the underground workings of the mine  and made careful enquiries regarding  the recent accident there. Mr. McGregor   is   anxious   that   an    inquest  1  1  We now have a large assortment of  Reds, Reels,  Lines, Hooks,  Leaders, Fly Books,  Grasshoppers,  Cans, Etc, Etc  SMITH  &  McRAE'S,  Books, Stationeiy, Wallpaper, Nations  and Fancy Goods,  GBEBN^OQD,    B.C.  should be held in order that the evidence may be useful in the prevention <  of similar accidents in the future. No  one being anxious, however, to make  such a declaration as will justify the  coroner in holding an inquest under  the new regulation promulgated by the  attorney-general, no action has so far  been taken. It is understood that Mr.  McGregor has communicated the facts  of the case to the department and it is  quite possible that an inquest may be  ordered from Victoria. Mr. McGregor  is visiting the different working mines  in the district. ' He has expressed his  satisfaction with the careful method  under which a number of the mines  are working, and was particularly  pleased with the magnificent shaft at  the Mother Lode. The inspector will  probably be in the district for a week  or ten days.  . Mr. E'ox, the superintendent of the  Golden Eagle mine on the Nortli Fork  of the Kettle river, was in the city this  week. He brought down with him  some magnificent specimens of ore  from the tunnel that is being driven  on the property. The Golden Eagle is  owned by L. S. Moulton-Barrett of this  city.  Thos. Miller left on Thursday for  Rossland. He will probably go direct  to Cariboo to manage some hydraulic  claims controlled by L. S. Moulton-  Barrett for an English syndicate.  C. E. Race, of Kennedy, Race &  Cronyn, went over to Grand Forks on  Wednesday. He intends visiting some  properties up the North Fork before  returning to Rossland.  T.-W. Gillette of Fairhaven, Wash.,  president of the Rambler Mining company, arrived in Greenwood Thursday.  He will spend several days in the  district.  W. S. Lenning is calling for tenders  for doing 100 feet of work ,on the  Carmi, a West Fork property recently  bonded by him. .__    ��� -- ���  There are several men working on  the Snowshoe. A boiler and-hoist has  been ordered for the property.  Clive Pringle and Ross Thompson  have gone to Toroda creek to examine  some mining properties.  L. S. Moulton-Barrett, is away to  James Creek, where he has mining interests.  R. R. Bruce, a well-known Nelson  mining man, is in the city.  NOTES.  Chris. Foley, a Rossland labor leader,  has been in. the city for several days.  G. B. Taylor, deputy sheriff, attended  county court at Grand Forks yesterday.

Olson has returned from Pen-  ticton, where he was moving freight  for his firm. Olson & Phelan are opening a branch store at Rock Creek as  well as at Rendell, and are getting in  a large stock of general merchandise.  At the adjourned meeting of the city  council, held Wednesday evening, the  by-laws were considered and a proposition from the Kootenay Standatd to  advertise the city was tabled.  Greenwood is getting more metropolitan every day. The irresponsible  newsboy shouts "only a nickel !" with  the assurance of a professional; the  bootblack has his stand on the corner ;  and, if further evidence were needed,  the street-preacher has made, his appearance, and harangues a large, if  not appreciative, audience, each evening-  t ���I  ���i  e  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.

The municipal council is struggling  with a number  of  money by-laws and  in clue course will  ask. the ratepayers,  to sanction   the  borrowing of certain  sums of money for  the specific  purposes   mentioned  iii   the   by-laws  re-  . ferred   to.   The   by-laws   outline   expenditures   for    streets,    waterworks,  cemetery site aud municipal buildings.  Before a vote is taken would  it  not be  well for the council to take the people  into   their   confidence   and  tell  them  where they are at.    Is the money that  is   to   be   borrowed   under   authority  granted by the passage of the cemetery  by-law   to  be  expended  for the  purchase of a cemetery site or for the payment of an overdraft at  the bank���an  overdraft contracted by  the previous  purchase, of a cemetery  site without  authority from   the  people.    Is all the"  money for waterworks to be expended  on the waterworks, or is  a portion to  go  tow.ards wiping  off the indebtedness, to  the bank ?   Is not a certain  portion of the   money  to be received  under the municipal  buildings by-law  to   go-towards    liquidating    another  slice of  this indebtedness, due to the  purchase of  a   building .site  without  authority  from  the people, and is not  some of the street  money  already  expended  on the government street cut  and   other portions   of  the city?   In  other words, can  money  be borrowed  under by-laws for  the purpose of undertaking certain   specific   municipal *  improvements, and then  used in liquidating debts already contracted ?  INSTRUCTIONS   TO   CORONERS.  The attorney-general must surely  have ^discovered ere this that his instructions to coroners are entirely unsuitable to a mining country. Under  the present regulations an inquest is  scarcely possible in ordinary cases,  unless the attorney-general suspends  his own regulations and orders the  coroner to hold an inquest. The re-  'cent fatal accident at the Jewel very  forcibly illustrates the impracticability  of the attorney-general's regulations.  Dr. Jakes, the coroner, visited the  mine and'made enquiries. For this  he is allowed nothing by the government, and I:o would be allowed nothing  for holding an inquest unless he made  the following declaration :  "I, of , in the Province of British  Columbia, coroner, do hereby solemnly  declare that in the case of the death  of , from information received by me  as coroner, I am of opinion that there  is reason for believing that the deceased did not come to his death from  "natural causes or from mere accident  or niischan e, but came to his death  from violen �����, or unfair means, or  culpable c:r negligent conduct of others,  under circumstances requiring investigation by a coroner's jury.  "And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing it to be  true, and knowing it is of the same  force and effect as if made under oath,  and by virtue of the Canada Evidence  act, 1893."  In order to be in a position to make  the above declaration, some one else  must impart the desired information  to the coroner. Now, who is going to  say he has reason for believing that  the unfortunate Spargo came to his  death, not from natural causes, nor  from mere accident, nor mischance,  but from violence, or unfair means, or  culpable or negligent conduct of others.  In the interests, of those working  underground an inquest is of the  utmost importance, not for the purpose of placing the responsibility upon  any one, but that the information may  be so applied that similar accidents  would be impossible in the future.  Generally speaking every fatal accident in a mine should be thoroughly  investigated. Such an investigation  shonld not depend upon a man making  a declaration that may or may not be  true, but should be compulsory. It  were much better that too many inquests should be held than that one  case requiring investigation should be  neglected.

The publ ic: school teacher does not  receive from the -parent in a mining  camp that support and encouragement  ' the importance of his work deserves.  The teacher in a mining camp is overworked and underpaid. He has to'  train children who often show a lack '  of home training. He is often forced .  to do his work in a badly-constructed  and worse-ventilated building, and  sacrifices the best years of his life in  the rather difficult task of making  'good and educated citizons of tlie boys  and girls under his 'charge. It is  clearly the duty of tlie parent to afford  him every encouragement and support  in every possible way. The prin^ip. 1  of the public school in Greenwood receives the munificent salary of Si-5 per  month'. He is supposed to appear respectable, 'pay his bills and keep his  wife and family on this amount. Some  of the ladies have interested themselves in the matter of making the  life of the Greenwood teacher a more  comfortable one. It is the intention  to build a neat cottnge on the school  site. Alre.uiy S30 has been secured as  a nucleus of this fund. Mrs. Foreman,  with characteristic energy, has trained  the children', and will give an entertainment in Barrett's hall on Saturday evening to-night. One-half of  ' the proceeds will go towards this fund.  Another entertainment will be given  in the near future. It is hoped that  this laudable movement will be supported by parents and others...  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.  Alex. Beath left on Thursday to <"o  assessment work on some Canyon  creek properties.  P. F. Richardson and G. A. Carman,  two well known Vancouver travelers,  were in the city this week.  John Keough is in the city from Col-  ville. His three-story hotel on Government street is  nearing -completion.  If a���big celebration is to be "held in  Greenwood on July 1st, no time should  be lost in organising and getting the  committees to work.  James McGregor, inspector of mines,  has been officially notified of the decision of the government to enforce  the eight-hour law.  The Okanagan and Spallumcheen  Agricultural society has already .published its list of premiums for the fall  show, to -be held at Vernon on September 26th, 27th and 28th.  Leonard Norris, government agent  at Vernon, will be in Midway on Saturday and will endeavor to unravel the  Beaver creek tangles in reference to  pre-emptions and townsites.  Rev. W. A. Campbell of Camp McKiiiney, wishes the readers of Tim  Times to know that he knew nothing  of the announcement that he was to  preach in Midway and Greenwood last  Sunday, and that he is in no way  responsible for the  misunderstanding.  Last Sunday night an unfortunate  woman living in Grand Forks ran  into the Kettle river and was drowned.  One of the gamblers in the town'went  to her house to get some, money. She  ran away from him towards' the river  and he followed her. Without hesitation she plunged into the river. Her  body was not recovered. ���  CHINKS, Garbage Boxes and Cesspools need attention now. Sometimes sickness in the summer months is  due to lack of disinfectants. Be on the  ���safe side���use Ckeolin now.  <P*W> -   .;        .  ��� CREOLIN is a prompt, reliable anil  safe disinfectant. It is not poisonous,  and that is one of the reasons why it is  in such dcinaud. Death through carbolic  acid is frequent.  IN addition to its use as a general  disinfectant, Crcolin is an agreeable  deodorizer for the sick room, aii effective home remedy ��� for burns, cuts and  other hurts; and a useful application in  Healing- skin .blemishes and parasitic  diseases of animals.  THREE table spoonfuls of Crcolin  mixed with a gallon of water makes'a  good disinfectant  LLERBROS.  Dr'uggists and Jewelers:  4W"  we)  SMS  L.OOK OUT FOR CHEAP  as��...  s2s��  Lots.

The Midway celebration committee  are working- hard and are perfecting-  arrangements for a good day's outing  on the 24th. A cordial welcome is extended to the people of Greenwood,  -who are sure to enjoy a day at Midway.  Rev. Ralph W. Trotter came over  from Columbia on Friday.

The Clarendon hotel and cafe, Copper street, will be opened this (Saturday) evening. The Clarendpn bar has  been elaborately fitted up and will be  in charge of Max Carter.

J. Jackson, one of the employees  of P. Burns & Co.,-and" Miss Louise  Leveque were united in marriage by  Rev. Father Palmer on Thursday last.  The bridesmaid was the sister of the  bride, while Mr. Lynch supported the  groom." The happy couple'- were the  recipients of many presents from their  long list of friends.  Several strangers; who are recent-  arrivals, have walked into Greenwood  through no fault of their own. Just  before coming to the point where the  Greenwood road joins the Anaconda  road the road is heavy and the -grade  steep. The majority of the passengers  walk ahead of the stage and when the  fork is reached.some of them take the  Greenwood camp 'road. The= stage  never catches them, because it has  gone the other way. A fifteen mile  walk is the.result of this little error.  ~The Greenwood hospital is now in  full running order under the direction  of Dr. Jakes and Dr. Oppenheimer.  There are nearly a dozen patients  being cared for. The hospital is under  theocd.re of the housekeeper, Mrs.  Hurch, and two trained nurses. It is  the best-appointed" hospital in the interior and has always had a reputation for the excellent treatment 'accorded'patients.- One-or two patients  have been sent there by the city, the  arrangement being that the city open  up certain streets and' pay- a bonus of  $500 a year and be allowed a rate of $2  per day.  ���   AT  May 24,1899  Horse Races, Foot Races  ���   AND  CRICKET   MATCH  Midway v.
