Copper Street, Greenwood,  ALMOST COMPLETED  GRADE    OF    C.    c_    W.    RAIL.WAY  The Chief Engineer and his Assistant Make a  Tour of Inspection.���When Trains May/Be  Expected In Greenwood.  "Are we going to win our overcoats,  Mr, Tye?"-  The questioners were residents of  Greenwood who had sufficient confidence in the ability of Mr. Tye, the  chief engineer, and the railway contractors,' to wager ten $45 overcoats  with a 'gentleman, from the east that  there would be a railway engine in  Greenwood before the first of September.' -'.... '"';���'.'  "I will lose-a good deal more than  ten overcoats unless the railway'is  completed to Greenwood before that  date," war Mr. 'Tye's reply.  ' Mr. Tye  and  his chief associate J.  i G. Sullivan arrived in Greenwood Sat-  ��� urday   night.     They   had   just   completed ��� a tour of   inspection   over   the  the railway.   ..They   left   West   Robson and rode on  the work train to the  long '.tunnel, above Brooklyn.     From  the end of the track at this point they  .walked   to   Cascade 'and   from   there  rode on horseback to Greenwood.  "The work is progressing at a rapid  , rate," said Mr. Tye to a Times representative, "when it is considered that  the Columbia and Western railway is  the most difficult piece of road building  ever attempted in Canada.������'��� The track  is now laid on the switchback over the  big tunnel and is coming westward at  the rate of a mile a day. This rate  will'be increased in a short time. We  expect-to have the track in Cascade before the 10th of June and in Greenwood two months ' later. The bridges  over Mission creek and Porcupine  creek are practicaliy completed. The  roadbed will not delay tracklaying as  there is completed a stretch to Gladstone and the balance of the work will  be finished in time to continue track-  laying without interruption.  Mr. Sullivan" agrees with Mr. Tye's  conclusion in reference to the completion of the road and figures August  10 as the date when the people of  Greenwood:will greet the shrill whistle  of the railway engine.';.  When it is considered that not more  than 16 months elapseds ince Mr. Tye  and his engineers began the Lwork of  running the location lines for 105 miles  of railway through a wild and mountainous country, the progress made is  indeed phenomenal. Mr. Tye started  location work in February, 1898, and  in June following Mann, Foley Bros &  L,afson were awarded .the contracts  and began the work of construction.  The., responsibility for . the' work-  rested primarily on the shoulders of  Mr. Tye, the chief engineer. He'has'  made ah enviable record that caunot  but be appreciated by the Canadian  Pacific company.  CONTROLS THE WAR EAGLE.  F. P. Buck, a Quebec Capitalist. Makes a  Visit to Greenwood-  Two years ago the Boundary Creek  Times published that Mr. Graves had  succeeded in floating the Knob Hill  company in Montreal. The president  of the company was F. P. Buck, president of the Royal Paper mills. During  the two years changes have taken  place in the personnel of the directors  of the Knob Hill company. When the  company-was    first    organized    Mr.  Wc now have a large assortment of  Rods, Reels,  Lines, Hooks,  Leaders, Fly Books,  Grasshoppers,  Cans, Etc., Etc.  SMITH  &  McRAE'S,  Books, Stationeiy, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GBEB1WWOOD,    3.<P,  Buck held a controlling interest. He  has since sold the greater portion of  his stock for a large'figure. The ex-"  perience was so satisfactory that Mr.  Buck decided to take another chance  in Boundary Creek district. He succeeded in acquiring an controlling interest in the War Eagle mine adjoin- '  ing the Knob Hill and arrived here  last week to look over the property and  generally size up the situation ��� in  Boundary Creek. From present indications, the- War Eagle is likely to  prove a second Knob Hill. Of course  without development work it is hard to  arrive at a definite conclusion but the  surface showings are similar to those  on the Knob Hill._  Mr, Buck is also a shareholder in the  Buckhorn company recently organized  to develop the Buckhorn claim in  Deadwood camp. Rufus Pope, M. P.,  has a controlling, interest in this cotn-  pano. Mr. Pope will arrive in the district about June 10.  Speaking  about- the investment of.  capital in  Boundary creek mines, Mr.  Buck stated . that the eastern investor  profited by his experience in Kootenay ���  The great trouble in that district was.  ,not so  much worthless-"properties as ;  bad ���_ management' in ; the flotation" of  companies. . Treasury stock was sold;~  at   such  a loyr* figure that   sufficient  money-was not available for'the .proper development of the  mine and fail-,  ure was the result. , No such mistake  was made in  the War Eagle company  None of the stock was sold for less than'  -fifteen  cents,  giving ample funds for  the -purchase ,of   machinery  and the  placing of the .mine On a shipping, basis.' -'.Boundary creek had treated the  eastern  market generously and if the  wildcatter is kept' in  the background  there will be plenty of eastern nioney  available for   the purchase of  Boun-  'dary Creek properties.  An effort will be made t<5 secure a  first-class man to act as superintend-  -' ent of "both "tfte War Eagle and the  Buckhorn companies. Development  on a large scale will shortly begin on  both the properties.   c  Mr. Buck is accompanied by J. C.  Hodgson <t Montreal- business man.  Mr. Hodgson has taken the precaution  to examine and enquire before making  investments. '.'When you see large  bodies of ore blocked out in such properties as the Mother Lode and Knob  Hill one cannot but be convinced that  Boundary Creek is, one of the largest  and most promising mining ,camps in  the world," expressed Mr. Hodgson's  , view of the district.

The liquor license regulation by-law  was finally passed at the regular meeting of the city- council held Monday  evening. The clause allowing restaurants the right'to sell liquor was struck  out after considerablediscussion. The  fees to be paid for licenses for every  six months follows: Wholesale, $75;  hotels with 20 rooms and over, $200;  hotels with less than 20 rooms, $300;  special licenses for picnics, etc., $20;  transferred $20. Saloon licenses will  not be permitted until the city has a  population of 10,000.  C. J. McArthur applied to have Kirh-  berley avenue stumped bstween Dead-  wood and Providence street. The application was granted.  Goupil & Holden, signwriters, painters, paperhangers, etc., etc., etc.  Invite Them to Boundary Creek.  The members of the Canadian  Mining Institute will visit Kootenay  in September and will hold a meeting  in Nelson. The railroad will be completed to Greenwood by that time.  Would it hot be a good idea to invite  them to visit this district. The Cana-  diac Pacific Railwsy company will,  we are quite sure, offer every inducement to the members of the institute  to visit Boundary Creek Mine owners  and others interested should take up  the matter and see that the members  of the institute are invited here and  royally "entertained when they come  here. <It will be seen by the programme arranged by Secretary Bell  that two days are allowed for a visit to  the Rainy River district if the members desire. These two days could be  better spent in examining the mines  of this district, THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  *     H.   HALLETT.  Q0amefer, ��?oftct��ot,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.

THE min_ owners in the. vicinity of  Nelson and the Slocan have 'organized  for the purpose of reducing- the wages  of miners working underground immediately upon the enforcement of the  eight hour law. They have issued a  manifesto in which they state that the  enforcement of the law means reduc- ,  ing the hours of, labor in mines from  twenty hours a day to sixteen hours,  as many of the mines cannot work  three shifts to advantage and the reduction to S3.00 per day is therefore  necessary. The miners are also organizing and will probably refuse to  accept this reduction. Both parties,  the employer and employed have rights ���  in the matter. The mine owner has !  a right to say what he shall pay and  the iiiiner'what he shall accept. The ���  question of wages cannot be regulated I  bylaw. It must be a matter of arrangement. In the interests of the*  country and the parties more directly  concerned it is of the utmost importance that there should be no friction.  In the Boundary creek country, the  ' law should .make but little difference ,  Most mines are working eight' hour  shifts at the present time and we have  sufficient confidence in the mine owners to believe that they will not attempt  to make the enforcement of the eight  hour law an excuse to reduce wages.'  We think in their own interest .the  mine owners of Slocan will make a  serious error unless they   show -a   wil  lingness to make a fair and* reasonable compromise with the men and the  men will be equally foolish if they at- ���  tempt to force their views upon the  owners without an opportunity to  arrive at some conclusion that will  meet the views of both parties. The  eight hour law has been introduced' in  other mining districts. It created  some dissatisfaction at fiist but in  time these differences were wiped out.  Th$"exercise of reason and judgment  by both sides at the outset will prevent  any friction. In the event of trouble,  a victory for either side would be  dearly purchased.

The following' from the ' Toronto  Globe will be read with considerable  interest and 'some astonishment by  residents of Boundary creek.:  ���"Mayor John A. Manly of Grand  ' 2?orks, B. C, and Mr. E. Armstrong,  .���President of the Board of Trade of; the,  western city, are in the city, after  spending several days at Ottawa in the  interests of the new railway connection  -ivhich has been secured by Grand  _**brks. Both gentleman are very enthusiastic over the decision of Mr. Jay  Pi Graves to locate the Granby smelter at Grand Forks, and also the guarantee which was given them "by the  Minister of Railways that the station  of the new railway line would be located in Grand Forks, to suit the convenience of the citizens.  "Grand Forks is going ahead rapid- j  ly," said Mayor Manly, to a representative of the Globe  yesterday.     "It  is  the geographical centre of the  Boundary countary, and  also  the   centre of  the Kettle river valley, the most fertile  -spot in British Columbia.    This spring  a number of fruit-growers   from   Ont-'  ario are coming in to begin farming in '  the valley, where several large farms  are already  located.     By  July i the.  extension  of the  Crown's ' Nest Pass  Railway .will be running into the town,:  and of course will have a great effect  on the place.    It is the opinion of-such  well-known smelting and mining men  as James Shields  of Anaconda,   Mr. '  "Austin   of   Denver,   Mr. .Nutting  of  Lead ville, F;   August Heinze ' and D.  C.Corbin that there will be a dozen  smelters in and  around  Grand Forks  within the next five or six years, giving   employment   to   10,000 men, and  "..that   within   a  radius   of   25 miles of  Grand Forks there will  be  employed  underground in the mines 50,000 'men.  To show the permancy  and solidity of  the country and the favor in  which  it.  it is held by capitalists, I  might state:  that   the   Gugenheimers,   the largest,  smelting firm in the world, have purchased   36   mining   properties   in the  Boundary   country,  upon which  they  are doing development work; the Pilot  Smelting company of Butte have some  fourteen properties that they  are ' developing, the Lexington Smelting company of Butte are interested in Summit,  .and,.,Central camp;  Mr.  Corbin,   Mr.  Heinze, Messrs. Finch & Campbell :and  dozens of other  mining men are investing   their   money  in the district.  Arid when such  well-known   men "and  companies   as these  are  investing  it  should give confidence to the eastern  Canadian public iri the Boundary coun  try,   the   richest   mining    district   in  southern British Columbia."  "How is the   climate ?"   Mr. Manly  was asked.  "The winters are very, mild in the  Kettle river valley; cattle are able to  - graze all through the cold season,  which is usually of only three months'  duration! March there is almost the  same as,the weather here at present."  Mr. Manly is the proprietor, of the  ���Yale, a'$40,000 hotel;, which has just  been erected in Grand Forks, and  while in Toronto he purposes to spend  about $20,000 on furniture and interior  fittings for it." .      ,  THE   REPUBLIC   ROAD.  A dispatch received yesterday from  the special correspondent of the Spokesman Review at Davenport is an indication that it is the intention of the Great  Northern to build its branch to Republic up the San Poil. The dispatch also  . bears out the suggestion made in this  paper several weeks ago that the Great  Northern will endeavor to secure the old  Seattle, Lake Shore, & Eastern right-  of-way and roadbed. The dispatch  follows:���  "Davenport, Wash., May 17���The  Great Northern company is connecting  the old Seattle line with the main line  at Waukon and getting it in shape to  be used when the line is completed between Republic and Davenport."  The most remarkable feature about  this news is the strange action of the  Northern Pacific in letting the old Seattle, L,ake Shore, & Eastern road go  to the Great Northern. So far as the  local records show the Northern Pacific  is yet the owner, the deed of the property to it from the Spokane & Seattle  Railway company, successor of the old  Seattle, Lake Shore, & Eastern Railroad company, having recently been  filed with the county auditor of Spo-  ane county. The acquirement of the  property by the Great Northern gives  that company 45 miles of completed  railroad, which, it is thought, will form  a portion of its Republic extension.  Despite, the  fact  that   surveys  are  being made in different localities, this  news will strengthen  the  belief  that  . the.Republic extension will be over the  following route :  From Spokane to Devenport over  the old'Seattle-Lake Shore track, over  a part of which the Great Northern  now gains entrance to Spokane; from  Davenport along the grades of Hawk  creek to Hell Gate rapids on the Columbia; cross the Columbia by bridge  and go up the valley of the San Poil.

MarlS 9 '''    >>"':   '- "   <���'  THE   BOUNDAKY   CREEK   TIMES.  THE   SUVilLKAMEEN    COUNTRY.  . J. R. Rea has returned from the Similkameen country, where he has been  on a prospecting trip since early in  May. He reports that there are a large  number of prospectors in that section,  and that new locations are being made  every day. The agents of capitalists  are following in the wake of the prospectors. Among those who have recently visited that section are Dr.  Deeks of Montreal, Ex-governor Dewdney, and others, who are there for the  purpose of acquiring 'properties for  themselves or for principals. The  present centres of activity are 20-!iii!e  Creek, Tulameen River Camp, and  Copper Mountain. At. 20-mile Creek  about 100 locations have been made  recently. The ore found there is principally arsenical iron carrying free  gold. The ledges are from four to live  feet in width. The Nickel Plate property is among the best in the camp.  The ore on this'property assays as  high as $300 to'the .ton. It is owned  by a Spokane company, which is actively engaged in developing it. The  Bonter Brothers of Rossland own: the  Anaconda group of three claims here.  One ledge on the Anaconda claims is  three feet in width, and the,ore from  this gives assays of as high as 3285 in  gold to the ton. The other, ledge,  which is parallel to the first, is of copper ore, 18 feet in width, and carrying  shipping values.  There are 50 locations in the Tulameen River Camp. Among the better  claims is the Magor. The oreifrom  the Magor is a white quartz carrying  copper and gold. It assays as high as  $350 to the ton. The City of Paris  group of three claims is a promising  one. There are two veins on this  group. The ore is similar to that  found on the Magor, and the ledges  are five feet in width. The Hidden  Treasure Mining company of Rossland  has several claims of a promising character in this camp, and work on them  has already commenced. Thos. Rabbit  who owns the Bonanza Queen in this  camp, asks $40,000 for it.  There are a large number of locations on .Copper Mountain. Some": of  these were taken up 12 years since.  There is considerable activity on this  miiuiit tin, and although the snow is  i....t''quite gone, there is a great deal of  work in progress. When the snow is  completely gone, there will be much  more work done, and the mountain is  cerlain to be the scene of a great deal  of activity during the coming open  season, as several companies intend to  begin operations there.   ..���'  It is expected in the Similkameen  country that as soon as the Canadian  Pacilic finishes construction into the  Boundary Creek country that it will  commence building into the Similka-.  meen country, and it is thought that  there will be railway transportation  there within two years. The distance  from Midway is about 100 miles. ���  Rossland Miner.  The Oro Denero.  A meeting of the King Mining  company, which is operating- the  famous Oro Denoro property in Summit camp, in the Boundary Creek  country, was held at its office in the  Burns block, in this city yesterday.  Ross Thompson, the vice-president,  and Angus MacNish acted as secretary.  The business transacted was the  decision arrived at to purchase from  James D. Sword, of the James Cooper  Manufacturing company, a five-drill  compressor, so that the property may  be properly developed. The plant is to  consist of a large horizontal tubular  buik-r, hoisting engine, sinking pump  and a live-drill compressor, with drills.  This plant will be shipped immediately from Rossland, as the company from  whom it was ordered have had the  plant in stock here. It was thought  that this plant should be in operation  within a month from the time of shipment from this city.  This property, the management  claims, promises to become a mine of  considerable importance. The surface  showing is scarcely equalled, it is  claimed by any property in the same  stage of development in the Boundary  creek country. The ore is a chalco-  pyrite, carrying fair values in silver,  and a little gold, the principal value  being found in the copper. The ore  is particularly amenable to concentration, having a soft gangtie, and will be  valuable to smelters requiring- copper  in a: base gangtie.  The company intends to push the  sinking of the shaft, which is now  down 102 feet on to the 500-feet level,  and there will be crossctttting and developing the veins at the usual levels.  There is every reason to believe by the  time the railroad reaches or a very  short time thereafter, that the Oro  Denero will .be in a position to ship  ore,���Rossland Miner.  ^?ttmm!mw?.?mm??.m?mmtm  Head Office and Works at  Belleville, Ont.

Victoria, May 19.���The fire, which  completely destroyed Carey Castle the  official residence of the lieutenant-  governor, this morning, was the fourth  that has occurred during Mr. Mclnnes'  occupanc3', all from the same cause, a  defective flue. Attempts to remedy the  defect have been made, ��� but without-  success, the age of the chimney, no  doubt, causing many.weak spots. The  fire was discovered by the private  secretary, who heard the crackling of  the flames in the attic and telephoned  for the brigade, but the old house  burned like tinder and the firemen  could do little. Lieutenant-Governor  Mclnnes had time only to get out with  the clothes he had on.  "I do not think I have anymore than  I stand in." he said, "save iny uniform, which I managed to throw out  when   the  alarm was first given,     I  have lost all my clothing   and a great  deal else besides.

Beaverton is the terminus* of the West Fork branch of the Canadian  Pacific Railway, there are no other branches in that part of the country.

But  nearby was a hat which, had been left behind  by another member of the club, This member  it appeared on enquiry had taken the plantiffs  hat not being able to find his own, The plains  tiff went and bought a $2,50 hat, Sent the bill  to the other member, The other declined to  pay and so was brought into court, The die*  fendant submitted that the whole affair was a  ^j trifling mistake and that he was not liable in  law. The Judge thought differently. He said  it is not a mistake The defendant saw a hat he  knew was not his and took it He gave judges  ment for $1.75 in favor of plantiff the sum  which the latter's missing hat had cost  MORAL Buy your hats from R & Co they are  different from other hats, and have them put  your name in it  ____.   ____,&___   <0_��    Ita/^a/a  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.

The base ball match between the  bankers and brokers was a one sided  alTair. Only two bankers were ready  to distingnisli themselves and ihe team  was made up of Greenwood's best  players.

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY.  Probably the Queen's birthday' is  celebrat-d with greater enthusiasm in  Canada than in any of the other  British possessions. It is not surprising that this should be the case. When  Victoria ascended the throne her soldiers were, engaged in the work of  quelling that rebeilion'of a handful of  misguided patriots who took up arms  in their struggle for responsible'government. During the queen's reign  Canada has grown from separate colo-  nies.peopled with quarrelsome factions,  to a strong and powerful nation.  Four nations welded into one, with .long, historic past,  Have found inthese, our western wilds, one common life at last:  Throuirh the: younjf iriaut's mighty limbs, that  stretch from sea to sea,  There runs a throb of conscious life���of waking-  energy.  He wakes���a baud of cultured homes and colonies no more,  But a young nation with  her life full beating-  in her breast.  A'noble picture in her eyes���the Britain of the  west.  Little wonder that   the   Canadians  should celebrate the  birthday of that  noble lady.who spent sixty-two years  of the eighty years of her life keeping  a watchful eye over a young colony  yet leaving it free and  untramelied to  work out its own destiny.
