OS THE NORTH FORK  site  for   smelter   chosen  Granby Smelter will be Situated on the North  Fork of the Kettle River.���Grave's Experts  Have so Decided.���Grand Forks is Jubilant.  Cowbells pealed, bonfires blazed, and  the patriotic people of Grand Forks  wept tears of joy, when it was definitely announced on Saturday that the  Granby Mining- & Smelting- Company  would erect-its 500-ton smelter on the  North Fork of the Kettle River, about  V/z miles from the City of Grand Forks.  For several weeks Mr. Graves and  Mr. Hodges, his smelter expert, have  been examining different sites in the  district. The choice narrowed down to  two. The one on the North Fprk of  the Kettle River, and one on the bench  overlooking Midway. The latter has  its peculiar advantages, but has one  serious drawback inasmuch as it was  thought that Boundary Creek had not  a sufficient water supply, and that it  would be necessary to have a pumping  station on the Kettle River immediately below. Mr. Graves to make cer-'  tain brought in an hydraulic engineer.  He decided \a favor of the North Fork  site.  The decision means much for Grand  Forks. .. It is so peculiarly situated  that it could never be a mining center,  and its salvation lay in an industry  such as that promoted by Mr. Graves.  There is still a possibility of a town  springing up in the vicinity of the  smelter and proving a dangerous rival  to Grand Forks.  ��� The site selected possesses some distinct advantages. The North Fork  can be easily, dammed -at this point,  and an excellent' water power thus  secured. It is fairly well divided from  the farming area by a mountain, and  this and its elevation may lessen the  daamge that the smelter will do. Then  further up the North Fork there is  plenty of lime.  The Midway site, which was almost-  accepted, is likely to be acquired by .  another big company. Engineers are  at present on the ground, and as the  directors of the company are prepared  to offer inducements, the site is likely  to be chosen within a few days. Another smelter site attracting attention from still another company is one  immediately below Boundary Falls,  Negotiations are now in progress with  the Greenwood Waterworks Company  with a view to securing certain concessions at this point. -.��� .,.;-...;-.  -;,...  The Granby Consolidated Mining &  Smelting Company, Ltd, which was  floated in Montreal some time ago, was  registered last" week. -The head'office  is at Phoenix. The capitalization is:  $900,000, divided into 25-cent shares.  The objects of the Company are numerous, including everything- from prospecting to running a. line of steamships.  RAILWAYS WITHIN THE CITY.  Contractors do not Care to Undertake the Work  ���of Construction!  Railway building affords considerable interest and some excitement to  the residents of Greenwood. P. Welch  & Co., are building Copper-Dead wood  branch. - There is considerable heavy  rock work immediately above the city  and the free use of powder is necessary. The contractors do not feel at  liberty to use as much' explosive as  they would like, as the residences are  too close to the work for safety.   " In-  Jtf  We now have a large assortment of  Rods, Feels,  Lines, Hooks,  Leaders, Fly Books,  Grasshoppers,  Cans, Etc, Etc,  SMITH  &   McRAE'S,  Books, Stationeiy, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  OREENWOOD,     B.C,  deed this was considered such a serious  drawback that P. Welch & Co., were  unable to sublet the contracts. None  of the railway men were anxious to  take chances on damaging property  and the work would be delayed and  made expensive by the restricted use  of powder. The same may be said of  the main line through the city. None  of the railway contractors would undertake the work and Mann,Foley Bros. &  Larsen were compelled to build this  portion of the line themselves. This  work has already been commenced  under the supervision of Vernon Smith.  He has established his camp at the  mouth of Copper creek. He will have  a large force of men employed. The  work ot grading the road from Eholt  to the city limits is well under way.  Grading has also been commenced on  this side of Boundarj' Falls. '  ANOTHER   TELEGRAPH   SYSTEM.  An Ottawa dispatch states that an  act to incorporate the Northern .Telegraph company was passed by the  railway committee. /Trie incorporators  of the company are D. ,C. .Corbin,  Spokane, Duncan Ross, Greenwood  and John Dean, Rossland. The capital stock is S50.000. The head office is  to be in Greenwood.' The bill is in  charge of Mr. Bostock. The company  intend constructing a telegraph line to  connect Greenwood with Corbiu's  telepraph system which was recently  extended to Republic. The Boundary  Creek Telephone & Telegraph company intend securing connection with  the outside towns by means of the new  line. This company have secured  their 'phones and will begin stringing  wires immediately.  MINING   NOTES  ��� The Minnehaha mine of Camp McKinney, B. C, is to be at once equipped  with ��� a 10-stamp mill. , This course  was decided upon at |a special general  meeting of the directors of the Minne- .  h'aha held gin Toronto recently. The  reports presented from the mine show  that there are several tons of ore on  the dump, and tliat a'large quantity  of gold-bearing rock has been blocked  out above .the 200-foot level and that  therefore the time has arrived when  the stamps should begin to drop. It is  expected that the mill will be completed and in position before the summer is over.  NOTES.  James McGregor, inspector of mines,  has gone to Camp McKinney.  H. Needham, of Vancouver, who represents English capital, is visiting the  district.  i.D.-H. Beecher and Duncan Mcintosh  of the Winnipeg mine were ifL the city  this week.  One of the employes at the Old, Iron-  'sides had his leg broken by a fall of  rock this week.  . W.  N.  Megraw   has    been   elected  : mayor of Vernon'.     Mr.   Shatford resigned,the position on account of  illness.  Rev. Mr. Trotter . preached -in Barrett's hall on Sunday. He is making  arrangements to build a Baptist church  in the city.  The Sunday-closing by-law is now a  municipal ordinance, and most of the  business men are making ready to close  their stores Sunday next.  Nominations for municipal offices  will be held in Columbia tomorrow.  It is thought that Charles Hay will be  elected mayor by acclamation.  The Midway celebration committee  have met with a great deal of encouragement. About Sl,000 will be available for prizes. An excellent day's  sport is assured.  At three o'clock this (Wednesday) afternoon, Gus. F. Luff and Miss Jessie  Dunsby were married in the Imperial  Hotel parlor by Rev. Mr. Balderston.  Miss Allie Palmer was bridesmaid,  while Henry Jolly supported the groom.  The happy couple will bcgi.n housekeeping at once.  Philip S. Standhope who is to have  charge of the work at the King Fungus  placer mine" will leave England shortly for here. It is the intention of the  King Fungus company to do a large  amount of work on their property this  su.rn.mer, THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  I     H.

On Saturday  the; 27.th of May,  the  ratepayers will be-asked to  gpive  their  assent to from   money  by-laws  which  are  published   in    this  Jissue   of the  Times.    The first and  most important  authorizes the borrowing' of $15,000 for'  street improvements.    This  by-law  is  objectionable  because   il   contains  no  clauses that-protect the interests of the  ratepayers.      it  will  be   remembered  that  last   year   a   similar  by-law was  passed.      The city  engineer had prepared a schedule, of the  work intended  to be performed with  the  money  bor- -  rowed.    This schedule-was-not  made,-.  part of the by-law, with .theresult.that,  it did not figure..in the  expenditure of;,.,  the money... The;,,confiding-: ���ratepayer ������  on   Skylark  street,    or   on  Kimberly'  avenne or on   the dozen  other-streets  that  were-.undisturbed:   by /the .ciy.ic.  workman had the^satisfaction of seeing- ���  the money expended:elsewhere;: ��� '��e-"  understand, that- a   similar schedule-  has been prepared'.this year.   It should  have   been   made   part '6f the by-law.  This is no new idea and is only reasonable protection to" the ratepayers  who  vote the money.    Only a few days ago  a similar   by-law  was   passed   by   the  Rossland city council .and.published in  the Miner.    The preamble of this  by-'  law names the. streets .that  are to be  improved, then states that it is deemed  expedient to borrow 525,000   for   this  purpose. The different clauses of the  by-law are then given and the last  clause states that the money borrowed - shall be expended on the  portions of the streets and alleys  above set out as designated in the  schedule A. Schedule A. is an estimated cost of doing- certain grading on  the streets referred to in accordance  with the plan outlined by the board of  works. This schedule is part of the  by-law and binds the council to a fair  and equitable expenditure of the  money.  , By-L<aw No. 19 authorizes the borrowing- of S8,100. for improving the  waterworks. An efficient waterworks  system for tire protection is of the utmost importance and the ratepayers  will feel bound to vote this money even  if they have not, absolute confidence in  the ability of the council to expend it  judiciously. The municipal buildings  and the cemetery by-laws are not  wholly for the purposes mentioned but  rather to pay overdrafts at the bank  for money borrowed without authority  from the ratepayers.  . ���'��� The passage of the by-laws will increase the indebtedness of the city  530,000. In round numbers this will  increase the taxation five mills,on the  dollar. The ordinary taxation, the  raising of the necessary money to meet  last,year's loan, and the new loans will  entail a taxation of nearly 25 mills on  the dollar.., This high rate of taxation  entitles the ratepayer to a most prudent expenditure of the money borrowed.   ���  The Grand Forks Miner celebrates  its fourth birthday last week. The  Miner is a vigorous youngster and as  Mac is not the kind of a man to publish  a paper for fun, its healthy appearance bespeaks a large measure of prosperity for the city in which it is published. ���  maid  4��  -A waiter and a chamber-  ANTED,  '   Apply���St. Ch arles Hotel.  +  Jfl FINE LINE OF......

Being a fairish long  distance walker I soon was in the lead  and   alone.   . Some distance   up   the  ���^mountain you come to a I point where .  the   road forks.   To a stranger in a  strange part of the country  that is al-  , \ways a dilemma., Oh a big tree standing at the angle of the roads is a huge  sign board with multifarious directions.in the form of arrows indicating  the various points on either road, to be  reached, all'of which  were  Greek  to  'me. Above all,' however, was one  pointing- " to Greenwood." , As I was  going to Greenwood I naturally took  the road leading to that burg.  Greenwood is a city of >1,500 or 2,000  of a population-, and is solidly building  up. It is anticipated that the railway  will be running in about three months;  being partly constructed at the present  time. Grading'and .excavating, were ,  going on at intervals all the way from  1 Cascade City to Midway, which is the  present terminus. Undoubtedly the  road will-be extended next year so as  . >to complete the line'of communication  at Vernon. There are two routes west  of Midway, which have been proposed  and partially surveyed ; one is. by .way-'  of Rock Creek and through Meadow  pass by a very circuitous and zigzag  line-by Meadow up to Penticton. The  other' is up the West Fork of the Kettle  '  river to Kelowna, and 'from,'there to  : Vernon. Either route is a, very difficult one to build and winds in and out  promiscuously. It will be interesting  to give the distances of the Columbia  & Western and the proposed Kettle  River route. '  COLUMUIA AND  WESTERN.  M.  20  SO  12  24  8  84  From Trail to Robson.. :..

On the other hand, the  ^Columbia and Western .railway which  follows across country will .cost, I was .  informed, $31,000 a. mile, ;and has to  take some high elevations and wind in  and out across divides,' Nature has  certainly not favored" an all-Canadian  route through that territory.     ���<-  Those who talk about a direct route  from Crow's Nest pass through Kootenay and Yale to Hope, forget or do not  know that it is really a iuueh more  crooked route than the present line,  and not much shorter. It will, it is  true, be free from snow slides, and the  very heavy rock work and tunneling  of some portions of the present line;  but will never be so popular from a  tourist's point of yiew. I do not believe it will be so fast a route. It is a  difficult and expensive line to build.  Thejline west from Penticton through  the Similkameen country will certainly be built to Hope on the main  line of the C.P.R. The mining development in the. Similkameen will  render it necessary, just as the mineral  resources of Lardeau and Duncan and  / of the Windermere district are causing  railways to be built in there this summer. If it is not built, it will at least  be operated by the C. P. R. Where  there are ores to haul there the railways will go. In and around Greenwood, for instance, the plans of the C.  P. R. include branch lines to all the  contiguous mining camps, showing the  ,  faith possessed by that  corporation in  . the mineral deposits1' there. .

It is announced that  the C. P. R. will erect a large 1,000-ton  smelter somewhere in the Boundary  district, and by building in branch  lines to the mines, it can deliver the  ores at any point on the line. It must  not be supposed,, however, that the  mines will ship out great quantities of  ore at the very outset. It takes time  to develop a mine and, if ' in two or  three years, they can keep one or two  large smelters going they will do well.  At first-an output of not more than 200  tons a day is looked for, and it may not  reach that amount. No matter how  sanguine the anticipations of the public  may be, the usual experience is one of  disappointment. The unlooked for  usually happens.  Take the mining returns for 1S9S, for  instance, and notwithstanding that it  was a year of great activity the returns are practically the same as for  the preceeding year, although at least  $15,000,000 was reasonably anticipated.  One reason for the low, return is eminently satisfactory and that is that mine  owners, waiting for cheaper transportation and cheaper treatment, were not  in a hurry to ship; but were carrying  on development on a large scale and  blocking out ore, the result of which  will undoubtedly be seen in this year's  output. A glance through the report  of the minister of mines will support  this view, inasmuch as frequent reference is made to large forces of men  being employed in developing. Owing,  therefore, to the great anticipations  which have been inspired on account  of which the large  and  accessible ore-  bodies existing there, there may be  sonie disappointments as to the output  of Boundary Creek mines for a year or  two; but eventually as work goes on  . and values continue to improve, as at  present, with depth the returns from  this district will be the most important in the province. I was going to-  refer at greater length to the railway  problem, but will do so later on, when  I come to consider the question of railway communication as a whole. It is  one of the most interesting of the  problems of-the interior, and now that  smelting has been associated with it  the rproblem has become more complicated,  At the time I was in Greenwood in  March the hotels were crowded, and  people were going in at the rate of 20  or 25 a day. Business was good and  real estate selling at high figures.  From latest advices similar conditions  exist. In a social way a club has  started, which is the center of attraction, especially for the unmarried portion of the business men. In addition  there is a bowling alley. There are  several churches, a public school, and  branches of three banks. One policeman, John McLaren, formerly chief of  police of Vancouver, preserves peace  in the day time, and a watchman at  night. Greenwood is not, therefore, a  wild and wooly town, and is easily  governed. A good deal of black jack  is played in the hotels, but the prevailing game of cards throughout the interior is " slough," an adaptation of a  German game, and from the possibilities of play it affords is very popular.  Whist or seven-tip is played very  little. Slough being essentially the  game of the mining camp.  AT   ���  PN'Q  THDA^  May 24,1899  Horse Races, Foot Races  AND  CRICKET   MATCH  Midway v.

THE MONEY BY-LAWS.   ������  On Saturday  the; 27-th'of May,   the  ratepayers will be-asked to  give  their  assent to"from   money  by-laws' which  are published   in    this Jissue   of the'  Times. ., The first and  most important  authorizes the borrowing of $15,000 for'  street improvements.    This  by-law  is  objectionable   because   il   contains   no  clauses that protect the interests of the  ratepayers.      It  will   be  remembered  that  last  year   a   similar  by-law was  passed.      The  city  engineer had prepared a -scheduleof the   work intended  to be performed with  the  money  bor- ���  rowed.    This schedule... was not  made-.-  part of the by-law, with.the.r.esiilt.that,  it did not figure in the. expenditure of\<  the money.    ��he;,confiding .ratepayer  on  Skylark  street,    or . on  Kimberly'  avenue or on   the dozen  other streets  that were .undisturbed,   bv-the   civ.ic.  workman had the-satisfaction of seeing-,  the money expended elsewhere; ������ "We'  understand, that- a   similar  schedule  has been prepared'this year.   It should  have   been   made   part 'of the by-law. -  This is no new idea and is only reasonable protection to'the ratepayers  who  vote the money.    Only a few days ago  a similar   by-law  was  passed  by   the  Rossland city council and.published in  the Miner.    The preamble of .this  bylaw names the. streets .that  are to  be  improved, then states that it is deemed  expedient to borrow 525,000   for   this  purpose. The different clauses of the  by-law are then given and the last  clause; states that the money borrowed shall be expended on , the  portions of the streets and alleys  above set out as designated, in the  schedule A. Schedule A. is an estimated cost of doing certain grading on  the streets referred to in accordance  with the plan outlined by the board of  works. This schedule is part of the  by-law and binds the council to a fair  and equitable expenditure of the  money.  By-Eaw No. 19 authorizes the. borrowing, of 58,100. for improving the  waterworks. An efficient waterworks  system for lire protection is of the utmost importance and the ratepayers  will feel bound to vote this money even  . if they have not absolute confidence in  the ability of .the council to expend it  judiciously. The municipal buildings  and the cemetery by-laws are not  wholly for the purposes mentioned but  rather to pay overdrafts at the bank  for money borrowed without authority  from the ratepayers.  The passage of the by-laws will in-  . crease the indebtedness of the city  $30,000. In round numbers this will  increase the taxation five mills on the  dollar. The ordinary taxation, the  raising of the necessary money to meet  last year's loan, and the new loans will  entail' a taxation of nearly 25 mills on  the dollar. This high rate of taxation  entitles the ratepayer to a most prudent expenditure of the money borrowed.. - .;..'  ���"���:. The Grand Forks Miner celebrates  its fourth birthday last week.

Below is an extract from   one  of  R.  E. G-osnell's   letters   concerning     the  Boundary creek   country.     After  discussing the   Kettle   river   yalley he  ���  says/.... v.... ,".*'  It is a straight clime upwards for  ��� seven miles, and '��� everyone except  women, children, the maim, sick or  obstinate, walk. Being a fairish long  distance walker I soon was in the lead'  and- alone.   . Some distance   up   the  ���mountain you come to  a point where-  the   road  forks.    To a'stranger in a  strange part of the  country  that is al-  . \ways'a dilemma!,   On a big freestanding at the angle of the roads is a huge;,  sign   board   with   multifarious   direc-,  tions.in the form of  arrows indicating  the various points on either road, to be  reached, all of  which  were  Greek  to  -,- me.     Above , all,   however,   was  one  pointing "to. Greenwood."    As I was  going to Greenwood  I  naturally  took  the road leading to that burg.  - :, ��� ��� Greenwood is a city pf^.1,500 or 2,000  . of a population-, and is solidly building  up. It is anticipated that the railway  will be running in about three months,  .-'. being partly constructed at-the present  time. Grading and excavating were  going on at intervals all the way from  Cascade City to Midway, which is the  present terminus. ' Undoubtedly the  road will' be extended next year so as  '.-, to complete the line-of communication  at Vernon. There are ,two routes west  of Midway, which have been proposed  and partially surveyed ; one is by way '  of Rock Creek and through Meadow  pass by a very circuitous and zigzag  line by Meadow up to Penticton. The  other'is up the West Fork of the Kettle  . ' river ,to Kelowna, and from there to1  Vernon. Either route is. a very diffi- >  cult one to build and winds in and out  promiscuously. It will be interesting  to give the distances of the Columbia  & Western ; and the proposed Kettle  River route. '  ";'     'COLUMBIA  AND  WESTERN.  ���. .' M.

In addition   to  the   above  95  miles,  there is a section  hot  covered  by  the  charter that was asked for, but the ap- '  plication for which is now withdrawn,  as follows : ���  International boundary at Midway to  international boundary   at Bakers'  pass  .'. .;  24 miles  Baker's pass to Oro on Osoyoos lata... 29 miles  From, this place,   w.herijf'i(o'mpleted,  another extension  wrtjOTSwrabably be  contemplated into C.iffiadiaTerritory,  up Osoyoos and  (^jifaagari|?r'iv|r valleys.

On !the other hand, the  Columbia and Western L railway which  follows across country will cost, I was .  informed, $31,000  a. mile, "and  has to  take some high elevations and wind in  and   out  across  divides.    Nature has  certainly not favored "an all-Canadian  route through that territory.  Those who talk about a direct route  from Crow's Nest pass through Kootenay and Yale to Hope, forget or do not  know that it is really a much more  crooked route than the present line,  and not much shorter. It will, it is  true, be free from snow slides, and the  very heavy rock work and tunneling  of some portions of the present line ;  but will never be so popular from a  tourist's point of Yiew. I do not believe it will be so fast a route. It is a  difficult and expensive line to build.  Thejline west from Penticton through  the Similkameen country will certainly be built to Hope on the main  line of the C. P. R. The mining development in the. Similkameen will  render it necessary, just as the mineral  resources of Eardeau and Duncan and  / of the Windermere district are causing  railways to be built in there this summer. If it is not built, it will at least  be operated by the C. P. R. Where  there are ores to haul there the railways will go. In and around Greenwood, for instance, the plans of the C.  P. R. include branch lines to all the  contiguous mining camps, showing the  . faith possessed by ..that corporation in  . the mineral deposits1"' there.

SWORD, Manager.  out its policy of smelting as. well as  hauling the ores. It is announced that  the C. P. R. will erect a large 1,000-ton  smelter somewhere in the Boundary  district, and by building in branch  lines to the mines, it can deliver the  ores at any point on the line. It must  not be supposed,, however, that the  mines will ship out great quantities of  ore at the very outset. It takes time  to develop a. mine and, if in two or  three years, they can keep one or two  large smelters going they will do well.  At first an output.of not more than 200  tons a day is looked for, and it may not  reach that amount. No matter how  sanguine the anticipations of the public  may be, the usual experience is one of  disappointment. The unlooked for  usually happens.  Take the miningretttrns for 189S, for  instance, and notwithstanding that it  was a year of great activity the returns are practically the same as for  the proceeding year, although at least  $15,000,000 was reasonably anticipated.  One reason for the low return is eminently satisfactory and that is that mine  owners, waiting for cheaper transportation and cheaper treatment, were not  in a hurry to ship; but were carrying  on development on a large scale and  blocking but ore, the result of which  will undoubtedly be seen in this year's  output. A glance through the report  of the minister of mines will support  this view, inasmuch as frequent reference is made to large forces of men  being employed in developing. Owing,  therefore, to the great anticipations  which have been inspired on account  of which the large and  accessible ore-  bodies existing there, there may be  some disappointments as to the output  of Boundary Creek mines for a year or  two ; but eventually as work goes on  and values continue to improve, as at  present, with depth the returns from  this district will be the most important in the province. I was going to-  refer at greater length to the railway  problem, but will do so later on, when  I come to consider the question of railway communication as a whole. It is  one of the most interesting of the  problems of the interior, and now that  smelting has been associated with it  the ^problem has become more complicated,  At the time I was in Greenwood in  March the hotels were crowded, and  people were going in at the rate of 20  Business was good and  selling at high figures,  advices similar conditions  :i social way a club has  started, which is the center of attraction, especially for the unmarried portion of the business men. In addition  there is a bowling alley. There are  several churches, a public school, arid  branches of three banks. One policeman, John McLaren, formerly chief of  police of Vancouver, preserves peace-  in the day time, and a watchman at  night. Greenwood is not, therefore, a  wild and wooly town, and is easily  governed. A good deal of blackjack  is played in the hotels, but the prevailing game of cards, throughout the interior is " slough," an adaptation of a  German game, and from the possibilities of play it affords is very popular,  seven-up    is   played   very  or 2o a oay.  real estate  From latest  exist.

'  HENRY THOMAS,  Dated llih April, 1899, THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  HALL   MINES   SWELTER.  .'The Hall mines smelter at Nelson is  treating between 65 and 70 tons of ore  daily in trie small furnace. About 40  per cent, of this ore is obtained from  one of the Silver King workings, and  3s smelted in connection with purchased  lead ores from the Slocan.  It is the intention of the smelter superintendent to increase the proportion  of the Silver King ore next week to  fully 50 per cent., as the idea of: the'-  company in treating the Slocan'oreg'is'  mainly to use their lead contents for  collecting the silver values in the low-  grade Silver King ore, which carries  but a small percentage of copper.  The big copper furnace at the Hall  inines smelter was blown out Saturday  and it is at present uncertain when it  .'���will be blown in again, though it is  hoped that the shutdown will not be  for long.     n  Eight cars of lead bullion were  shipped' last week for refinement to  Balbeck & Co., New Jersey.   '      (  The official report of the past rhqnth  states that during 17 days three ' hours  of smelting 2,086 tons of ore were treated, containing approximately. 35 tons  of copper.arid 29,530 ounces of silver. :  CAPITALISTS   AND   PROSPECTORS.  ' The following extract from the mining report on the first cash payments  oh a bond as regarded, from the respec-  , tive standpoints of the capitalist and  prospector very concisely hits off the  situation :���  "The importance, and often the  ab-,  .;- solute necessity of capital, to bring  a  prospect through  the development i to  the producing stage is well recognized  .   by bur prospecting class,  but  at  the  ,.;.; same  time  they  fail  to recognize the  risk capital runs in putting money into  .-' a prospecton which litlle or no conclusive development has  been  done.'.'. In  consequence  the prices asked for properties of this description have been- so  high  that  the  holders of money, were  .-. not justified in so risking it.  "    "That there is in the country  ample  capital ready and more than willing to  invest in any prop'erty showing values  from definite  development,  is  beyond  question,: but  the money necessary to  bring a property  up  to the requisite  point   has  often  been  found  hard  to  ���'. [ obtain, v  "The moneyed,men or their  agents  are usually willing, working on a bond,,''  to guarantee to spend in development-  work definite1 amounts within  a' fixed ���  time* ! and so develop the property in  -question.   :      -.-'������ ���-,.  " The great trouble seems to be in  the demand for cash payments,-'to be  made' so soon tha.t'it is impossible that  sufficient development should- be done  in the time.  "Thus the terms, rather than the,;  amount of the bond, are what have  prevented, the development hoped for,  and the country is, tied up, inactive]  through what appears to be the unreasonableness of the prospector.  "There is, however, another side to  the question, which I think it might be  well to' bring before the capitalist.  " The prospector, enduring privations  and hardships, and running dangers  innumerable, spends his whole time  scouring the most remote parts of the  mountains for prospects; he has no  other means of livelihood, and must  have money enough to buy food and  supplies; so that when he comes to tie  up a prospect in a bond, though perfectly willing to stand in with the capitalist^ on the gamble, still he must  have enough cash to enable him to get  out into' the mountains again to discover new properties. The demand for  a small cash payment is thus not as  unreasonable as it at first seems.  " I am glad to say, however, that  there seems to be a decidedly better  mutual understanding coming about,  the effect of which should be shortly  felt."  The Great Steel Combine.  A Chicago dispatch says : John W;  Gates has confirmed the rumor regard- ,  ing the combine of all the large steel  companies of the country, and made  the assertion that the deal was so far  reaching as the ingenuity of the minds  making it could conceive.

The regulation and curtailment of  licensed houses afforded material for a  rather lengthy and heated session of  the City Council on Monday evening.  , Mayor Hardy presided, and Aid. Naden  was the only absentee. Before discussing the by-law ' dealing with liquor  ilcenscs, some bills were referred to  the Finance Committee, and P. Welch  & Co. were granted the use of 1,000 feet  of steel rails at a rental of $2 per day.  The license by-law wasthen considered  in committee with Aid. Cameron in the  chair. Aid. Wood and Galloway were  not slow in declaring their opposition  to saloon and retail:shop licenses. The  mayor believed in including saloon  licenses in the by-law. It would then  rest with the commissioners as^to  whether they should be granted. Mr.  Black, who represented the licensed  victuallers, said the association was  strongly opposed to the granting of  saloon licenses and retail-shop licenses.  The clause dealing with saloon licenses  was passed, but was afterward practically killed by Aid. Galloway, who had  a clause inserted to the effect that no  saloon license should be granted until '  the city has a population of 10,000.  The hotelkeepers were, also opposed to  the granting of a liquor license to restaurants. Mayor Hardy stated that  the hotelkeepers were asking for too  much. The restaurant license stood.  Twenty-two hotels are to be allowed if  each has not less than 20 rooms. Other  hotels will be licensed if they cost not  less than $8,000. At twelve o'clock the  committee rose without completing the  by-law.  LAND JUMPING.  Mr. Leonard Norris Endeavors to Unravel Pre-*  emptlon Tangles.

During the past two  months, pre-emptidns in that locality  have been jumped and adverse claims  registered against the holders -thereof.  Mr. Norris did not give much satisfaction to the contestants. He steered  clear of the different surveys made by  different surveyors and confined his  attention to therights of pre-emptors  to hold.their locations..  A man named Morgan had jumped  the Wheatly pre-emption and' applied  for a record., He.failed to., appear ..on  Saturday and . his attorney withdrew  the case.'Douglass who jumped' J; T.  Bell's'pre-emption did not file his application with the land 'commissioner  until-a few days ago'and; consequently  no evidence-was-taken in this- case.  It appears that surveyors of the different pre-emptions do not agree but this  matter, was left for the chief coiiimis-''  sionerto de<tl with.  J.j.Melleville .applied for a record  of H;>M.��La'mb's pre-emption. He:had  witnesses .'to prove that Lamb had not  lived on his pre-emption for nearly two  years and had not improved it hr;?.riy-  way.. Lamb did not defend the suit.  F. J.'Boone wanted a pre-emption of  Jackson Bros'. There was considerable evidence taken in this case. Mr.  Norris reserved his decision in all  cases. -  GREENWOOD   A   SURPRISE.  R. E. Gosnell, who recently visited  Boundary Creek, is writing of series of  letters   for coast papers.    Regarding  Greenwood he writes in part:  '"���  ��� '���' Greenwood is. a surprise to a  stranger in many respects. It has  never been'boomed, but its inhabitants  have the most profound faith in its  future. It sits down in a narrow valley of Old Boundary creek, which was  prospected at the time of the Rdck  creek excitement in 1860, mountains  towering up behind and on, either side  of it. It is surrounded by mining  camps, and is the center of a group of  ore bodies, the most remarkable that  have yet- been discovered in British  Columbia. To the northwest two  miles is Deadwood camp, in which, the  Mother Lode is located, with an ore  body 185 feet in width,; further on and  up is Copper camp, six miles away.  ., Just above the town is Skylark-camp,-'  and higher up Greenwood camp, with  the great Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  mines, showing leads over -400 feet in  width. South of Greenwood camp and  next to it is Wellington camp, where  the Winnipeg mine is. Northeast of  Greenwood camp, on the very top of  the mountain, is Summit camp, where  the B. C. mine, which is! one of the  most important in the district, is  located. To the southeast and near at  hand is Smith's camp, and southeast;  just on the boundary line, is Cehtrul  camp. oFarther off and north and,  northeast are Kimberley; Long Lake  and'Pass Creek camps. These all  represent hundreds, I was going to say  thousands of claims. It is really-  wonderful. Under such circumstances  it is not hard to predict a future for  Greenwood. Of course, the great majority of the miners will live at the  various mines, but Greenwood will be ;  the supply and paying out point."  MACFARLANE-ROTH.  J. H. Macfarlane and Miss Lena Roth were  Married in {Spokane.  Mr. J. H. Macfarlane, superintendent of the Sunset mine, and Miss Lena  Roth, a sister of Mrs. J. W. Nelson,  were married in Spokane on Saturday  evening last. The pleasing ceremony  was performed by Rev. Brian O'Rob--  erts at the residence of Mrs. C. W. Tynan, another sister of the bride. The  happy couple will return to the city in  a few days, and will reside in Greenwood. Both are well known in the  city. The Times joins their friends in  extending congratulations.

Dr. Schon, the city health officer, is  determined that all householders shalij  observe the provisions of the health  by-law. The proprietor of a Chinese  washhouse, who refused to carry out  the health officer's instructions, appeared in the police court last week to  answer to a charge of allowing- dirty  water to pollute Boundary Creek. After being served with a blue paper, the  Chinaman considered discretion the  better part of valor, and immediately  adopted other means of getting rid of  washhouse water. He pleaded guilty,  but as he had tardily decided to obey  the regulations, he escaped by paying  the costs of the case. Dr. Schon is  determined to punish all offenders  against the health regulations. During the past few weeks householders  have been making energ-etic efforts to  clean up, so that today the city presents a respectable sanitary appearance,  '.-..:'������. .'-/' ���-���  -   -  -   TO AEE FROM THE   -   -   -   -  pp       _=** rwt j^b.
