GREENWOOD, B.C��� SATURDAY, MAY 14, 1898.  88 No. 10."  1'U1  I:?  FINANCIAL   RECKLESSNESS.  i  I?  'OOLS rush in where angels fear to tread. The  Turner government with that recklessness  which plunged the province one and a half millions in debt in order to anchor the capital at  Victoria is now going to give $1,600,000 to assist  in building a railway to the Yukon country.  The necessity of a railway into the Boundary  Creek country is used as a stalking horse behind which the  government intends to impose this additional burden upon  the taxpayers of the province. British Columbia is to be  legislated into a modern Atlas, forced to carry burdens the  Dominion found too inconvenient to bear.  The bill authorizing the further loan of $2,500,000 was  presented to the house in the shape of an amendment to the  Loan Bill of last year. It will be remembered that this bill  provided for a loan of $2,500,000 making $5,000,000 in all.  The railways to be assisted by last year's act and the one  just introduced is as follows :  A���For a standard-gauge railway from Penticton to the  Boundary Creek district, approximately 100 miles in  length.  B���For a standard gauge railway from Robson to the  Boundary Creek district, to connect with the railway mentioned in sub-section A hereof, approximately 80 miles in  length.  C���For a standard-gauge railway from the Coast, in the  neighborhood of English Bluff, near Point Roberts via Chilr  liwack to Penticton, approximately 230 miles.  D���For a standard-gauge railway from Bute Inlet to  Quesnelle, approximately 230 miles.  E���For not more than 400 miles of a narrow-gauge railway from Teslin Lake to a seaport in British Columbia,  divided by the Stickine River into the northern and southern sections.  The above grants are to be made on the conditions :  (1.) That unless work is commenced on railways mentioned in Sub-sections A and B, within 15 months from the  8th day of May, 1897, and on those mentioned in Sub-sections C. and D within two years from the 8th day of May,  1897, and on each section of the railwa3>- mentioned in Subsection E by the 1st day of June, 1898, and is duly and diligently prosecuted to the satisfaction of the Lieutenant-governor in council, all right and claim to the aforesaid subsidy, granted by this Act, shall be cancelled and forfeited.  (2.) That construction on the railway mentioned in  Sub-section A of said Section 8 be begun and carried on  from Penticton.  (3.) That the aforesaid subsidy shall not be payable  until the section of railway for which the subsidy is granted  is completed and in running order to the satisfaction of the  Lieutenant-governor-in-counci3, nor until security or guarantees, satisfactory to the Lieutenant-governor-in-council  is, or are given for the continuous maintenance and operation of the railway ; and no subsidy shall be payable or paid  until after such completion and the g-iving of such security  or guarantees.  In the case of the line from Robson to   Boundary Creek  district being built by a cornp aiy entitled to a  land   grant,  for the construction of such line, the subsidy herein authorized shall only be paid to suoh company on its giving up its  claim to the land grant to suh portions of its line.  The land occupied and ciaimed as the right of way for  the road mentioned in Sub-se tion E, and other lands occupied for station   or  engine houses,  or .other  buildings con  nected with the actual open  with the personal'property 1  operation, including the roll  a whole, and at the sum of Piping sidings, of the railway  and without the limits of. ;,ii-  In connection with the ' x  for in Section E, an agreeine.  non of the railway, together  old in connection with such  ������!g stock, shall be assessed, as  )00 per iniie of track, includ-  utuated within the Province  < 11 ;or porated munioipa 1 ity.  .-> in Lake Railway, provided  with the promoters provides  that the provincial government shall, receive 4'per cent, of  the gross receipts of the r -.itway, and a.wj.g*on road over  the route indicated is to be i     -i^ '���-���   to y consti'ucted.  Past railway legislation ;:        ���:'���..>    .rovince   has  been   of  such a'nature that raihva3r pr. ��� ,;   ..- o found   it   more profit  able to wait for  subsidies   than   build   for   business, consequently we are bound   to accept the  subsidies   for   railway  construction into the Boundary Creek country as being necessary and in the public interest.    It   is  rather   a startling  anomaly to find a government  strenuously  endeavoring to  prevent Mr. Corbin from  building   a railway   into this district and then paying the C. P. R.   $4,000 a   mile   for  doings  what Mr. Corbin  offered  to  do  for  nothing.    It is equally  startling to find that the provincial government are paying  $4,000 a mile to the C.   P.   R.   when   Sir William Van Home  told the railway committee of the House of Commons that  his company did not intend asking for a  subsidy for building a road into Boundary Creek district.    The  people have  at  least   the  satisfaction   of   knowing   that if the C. P. R.  accepts this cash subsidy, the  enormous land grant which  had been alienated in Mr. Heinze's interests will go back tb-  the province. , ,  The    assistance   for    a   railway    from    Teslin  Lake  to   a    seaport    in     British    Columbia,   approximately   400'  miles is about as foolhardy a proposition as was ever undertaken   by    any  government.    The Yukon  country   is   an  inhospitable  region that is only temporary at best.    Placer  mining is never permanent   and   as soon   as   the river beds  yield no  further  wealth   the  district   will become depopulated.      The    .Dominion     government   realizing   this,    refrained from appropriating  public  money for  building  a  railway that after a few years will not pay for axle grease.  The   land in that   region will never be used for permanent  settlement and  consequently   is   the   exception to the rule-  that no lands should be alienated   to   assist  railway   enterprises.    The  Dominion  government was  frustrated   in its-  efforts by an irresponsible Senate.    The  British   Columbia  government generously  comes  to  assistance of the federal  government and undertakes a work that is  essentially the  duty of the Dominion.    Premier   Turner   showed so   much  anxiety in the matter that he telegraphed Sir   Wilfrid Lau-  rier that he was willing to undo the mischief of the Senate.  A general election   is   dangerously  near.    The  Turner  government is discredited.    Pocket  boroughs  require careful handling.    The Canadian Pacific Railway   Co.   will get  $400,000   for   a   road   from   Penticton   to Boundary Creek;  $320,000from Boundary Creek to Robson;  $1,600,000  for  a.  road from Teslin Lake to B. C. seaport ; $920,000  for a road  from Point   Roberts to Penticton.    Total $3,240,000.    What  a glorious opportunity for a campaign fund.    The C. P. R.  would   be   iudeed   ungenerous   if it did not donate at least  $250,000 to the Turner government to  carry   the   elections.  That sum will buy all the pocket boroughs in the province.  It is a daring, reckless scheme.    We must go  to history for  its parallel.    Years   ago   Richard  III  offered   his kingdom  for a horse ; to-day the Hon. J. H. Turner says to the   C. P.  R., " carry the elections and a province I will give thee."  *V4  ���He.  BETTER   MAIL   SERVICE   DEMANDED.  It is hoped that Post Office Inspector Fletcher will act  promptly in the matter of securing a daily mail service  between Greenwood and Grand Forks. Last summer such  a service was established because residents of Greenwood  contributed $20 a month for carrying the mails on alternate  da3rs. Such a service would probably have been maintained until the present but Mr. Snodgrass offered to carry  mails between the two points without private contributions  he   were   allowed   to  change his time on   the   Penticton  if  rout  Now that this arrangement no longer prevails it is  the duty of the post office department to act promptly and  re-establish the daily service. Greenwood is too important  a business centre to be without a clailv mail. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  First  Payment  Made.  On Saturday last $6,500 was paid'into, the. bank','at Rossland  on account of  the bond on the Snowshoe.    This  was  the first ten percent, payment, according to the   conditions   of the   bond for  $65,000 given by an  English  syndicate  represented by R. W.   Macfarlane,   M.  E.    Mr. Macfarlane went over to Rossland last week to make arrangements  for the payment of the money.  .', Since taking hold of   the   Snowshoe  some three months   ago   Mr.   ���Macfarlane did   considerable work.    A shaft  was sunk 130 feet.    This was  crosscut  for   44   feet   at   the 110-ft level.    The  result was most encouraging.    A large  vein of high  grade ore was uncovered.  Mr. Macfarlane is expected back  in a  few days and in air probability a large  mining plant will be purchased for the  Snowshoe.    With   such   a   plant   it  is  expected that a large amount of work  will be done in the next   three  months  at  the  end  of  which   the second payment becomes due.  Telephone   Connection.  Republic has now   telephone connection.    The line runs from Kettle Falls  9  and is 37 miles long. Later on the line  will be extended to Torado. The Spokane & British Columbia Telephone  Co., who erected the line are now building from Bossburg to Grand Forks.  They expect to reach Grand Forks by  Julv 1st.

Bids for the construction of the C.  P. R. from Robson to Midway, a distance of 100 miles, will be opened on  June 15th. Mr. W. F. Tye and his  corps of engineers are busy preparing  plans and the estimates for the road.  Among the contractors who have had  representatives over the, ground are  Foley Bros., St. Paul ; H. C. Henry,  Seattle ; Winthers, Parson & Boomer,  Butte ; Lynch ; Larson ; McKenzie &  Mann.  With respect to the road from Penticton work must begin at Penticton before August 8th to save the siibskty of  $4,000 per mile.  Mother   Lode   Machinery.  The machinery for the Mother Lode  is beginning to arrive; three wagon  loads reached Greenwood on Wednesday. The first consignment which  consisted chiefly of piping was hauled  to the mine with considerable difficulty.  The road to the Mother Lode was  rather soft and the heavy wagons cut  through. It is expected however that  before the boilers and heavier material  reach here the road will be in a better  condition. The plant is by far the  largest ever brought into the district.  The entire weight will be about 52  tons. '  -   ���  Mr. Corbin's Intention.  In a letter to The Times, Mr. D. C.  Corbin states that owing to the action  of the Dominion parliament he has  notified parties who were to take a considerable part of his bonds that their  subscriptions would be cancelled. He  does not expect to do any railway  building this year, unless it is in the  direction of Republic. Mr. Corbin is  naturally disppointed, and he expresses  the hope that for the sake of the district the C.P.R. Co. will carry out  their pledges and build here this year.  Kimberly   Camp.  Messrs. Shire and Thompson of Victoria arrived from Rossland this week  to work properties in Kimberly Camp  in which they are interested. Messrs.  Shire and McCurrach did considerable  work on Kimberly camp properties last  year. Among their locations are the  Wallace, Bruce, Middlesea, Forest City,  Caledonia, Thistle and Highland Chief.  Several claim holders in Kimberly  camp have decided to develop their  properties this summer.  Accident.  Richard Ratcliff, the well known  contractor, fell from Miller Bros.' new  building on Thursday and was rather  badly shaken up. He was shingling  when a portion of the sca.ffold.ing gave  way, a bundle of shingles falling with  him. Dr. Jakes attended to the injured man. It is feared that he was hurt  internally.   It is definitely reported that the Le  Roi and the North port smelter have  been purchased by the British America  Corporation. The price is said to be  $3,000,000.

The Christina Lake land dispute has  been settled. The dispute was between  Eli Lavalley who claimed 160 acres on  the east side of the lake under a preemption record granted him on June  23rd, 1896, and Chas. Dundee who  claimed 320 acres (which included La-  ������ valley's 160 acres ) under an application to purchase which was accepted  by the Chief Commissioner of Lands  and Works. It will be remembered  that Mr. Leonard Norris, the government agent at Vernon, held an inquiry  at Grand Forks on March 15th last.  Mr. J. P. McLeod appeared for Laval-  ley. The evidence of Laval ley's witnesses Wcis taken but neither Dundee  nor his ag-e'nt appeared for examination. Mr. Norris recently gave a decision in favor' of Lavalley, confirming  his pre-emption title to the land.  The decision hinged on. a question as  to whether a prior record held by Neil,  Hardy was valid, Mr. -Hardy having-  admitted he had not compiled with the  provisions of the Land Act as regards  occupation.  The decision of Mr. Norris gives  general satisfaction. Mr. Lavalley  pre-empted the land in g-ood faith,  lived on the property and spent over  $2,000 in improvements. Because the  land was likel}' to prove valuable a  "syndicate of speculators attempted to  force the poor settler off the land, secure it for themselves and hold it for  speculative purposes.   ,  It is a fortunate thing for Lavalley  and also for the reputation of the province with respect to the administration  of its land laws that Leonard Norris  was the judge in the dispute instead of  Hon. Geo. B. Martin. Mr. Norris  when left untrammelled by the powers  that be has been eminently fair in his  decisions ; Mr. Martin the reverse. , No  better illustration of this can be found  than the fact that through Mr. Martin,  some 80 acres were fH'ched from the  Ruckle Bros., hardworking farmers of  Grand Prairie, and ���given to a land  ���speculator at Victoria.

Not a house is to be seen, not even the  irrigation ditch, nor the bands of  horses, the tintinnabulations of whose  tuneful bells lull the denizens of this  loveh' valley into sweet slumber every  night.

Greenwood ehjoys'the rather unenviable distinction of being in a position  where   telegraphic   communication   is  slower than the stag-e   line.  A  gentle  man having business in Greenwood  telegraphed from Nelson, B. C, that  he intended leaving for Greenwood in  the morning. That telegram reached  Marcus,was promptly mailed to Greenwood but was delayed at Grand Forks  for 48 hours. In consequence of this  dela}', the sender of the dispatch  reached Greenwood 24 hours before the  dispatch itself. Such , a service would  not be tolerated in any other district as  important as Boundary Creek. Often  important mining deals fall through  because it is impossible to secure  prompt delivery of dispatch. If a telegram were mailed at Marcus for Greenwood on Saturday, under the present  postal arrangements, it would reach  Greenwood on   the following-Tuesday.  Hotel Arrivals.

Elsewhere we give a report of the  discussion on the redistribution bill.  Several ministers maintained that the  result was satisfactory to the people of  Boundary Creek district. Col. Baker  went so far as to state the gentlemen  from Boundary Creek district who visited Victoria during the session suggested the advisability of tacking  Boundary Creek to the Rossland district. We believe that Col. Baker was  lying for political reasons as he often  does and that no one from' Boundary  Creek suggested such an absurd and  unjust combination. The gentlemen  from   Boundary   Creek   ought to   give  Col. Baker's statement a flat denial.  It is bad enough to be wiped out of existence without charging our own people with being traitors to  the  district.  Hon. J. H. Turner has written a letter to A. J.

The following-  is the News-Advertis-  ,   er's report of the discussion in the legislature regarding-Mr. Graham's efforts  to secure justice , for Boundary Creek :  '���' Mr. Graham moved to have Clause  4 reconsidered. He wanted to bring- in  an amendment which would'oe just to  the electors of Bast Yale. x-He-said he  did not think that there could be found  one man in the whole constituency who  would sa}r that the region had been  treated fairW b}' the government.  The motion was   about to be put to a  vote without an expression of approval  from the government side of the house,  when   Mr.    Cotton   rose   and s.aid that  surel3r the government did   not   intend  to ignore the.motion.    Surely its sense  of justice had   not  become   exhausted  so   soon.    The   government   had  said  that it, had seen  the justice of the situation and led the house to   believe that  it   was   going   to act on   that.    There  could then be no  reason why   it should  not respond heartily  to   the request of  the honorable   member   for Bast Yale.  What justice   was   there in   joining a  part   of East  Yale   to   Rossland ?    It  was an unnatural union.    The twTo districts   wrere   separated   by boundaries  which gave them   nothing-in   common  with each other.    It had been an argument   of  the government   members  in  support of the bill   that constituencies  were divided because natural obstacles  stood in the wa}' of justice   being- done  to  them   by   one   representative.    He  would like   to  hear what   justification  the   g-overiiment  could  offer  for this.  It meant   nothing-   bttter than   strangling the voices of   the   people   of Bast  Yale.  Hon. Mr. Bberts replied that Rossland and Grand Forks were similar to  each other inasmuch as the}' both produced   copper,   and   he   would   submit  that  the  people of Grand Forks were  much  nearer   Rossland   than   Vernon.  The honorable gentleman who had just  sat down had claimed that the government was strangling the voices of the  people of Bast   Yale, but it was. a matter of expediency that the Grand Forks  country should be taken  into Rossland  and he could imagine   that   the people  thereof; when  they came to   look   seriously   and  properly   into the division,  would find it a very happy one indeed.  Mr. Cotton said that   the   Honorable  Attorney-General   must be   very hard  up for, arguments when he would   give  as his reason for the   joining- of Grand  Forks and Rossland that both districts  produced     copper.    Did   an3rone   ever  hear of such an arg-ument in the house  before.   Let the government come down  and announce   that   it would   abandon  that city of refuge that it was building-  up  for  itself   at   Cassiar   and give an  extra representative to Bast Yale.  Hon. Mr. Turner said he did not  think the honorable g-entleman knew  the part of the country he was talking-  about. He had received information  to the effect that the people there were  very much'satisfied.'  Mr. Semlin said he had received information from there of a very different nature, namely, to the effect that  the people Avere determined to oppose  being- severed from Bast Yale and  joined to Rossland.  Hon. Colonel Baker maintained that  the government was just throwing the  mining portion of Bast Yale into the  mining portion of Rossland. A number of people of< Boundary-- Creek, wrho  had been to the city of Victoria, had  expressed themselves as satisfied.  Mr. Graham : " That was because  the Boundary Creek people understood  at that time that the3r 'would be divided as they wanted to be, and the3r were  sent away with that impression."  Mr. Forster said that when the men  spoken of were in the city the3r had  been given the impression that Boundary Creek would be given a member,  but now that they had seen that they^  were not to get what they wanted, the\r  were joining the demonstrations  against the government.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.   . t  The reg-ular meeting- of the Greenwood city council was held at the courthouse on Monday evening. His Worship Ma3'or Wood presided, and Aid.  Gallowa3r, Kerr, Paton, Barrett and  Phelan were present.  W. F. T3re, of the C.P.R. engineering  department, informed the council that  as soon as the plans of the route of the  C.P.R. through Greenwood were reacU-  a cop3r would be furnished the  council.  The street committee was authorized  to make necessary repairs on Government street, in the valle3r.  The b\'-laws dealing- with ordinary  and special rates were re-considered  aud finally' passed. Aid. Phelan reintroduced b3r-law No. 7, which provides   for   the   better   protection   from  fire and theorg'inization of a volunteer  fire department. The bv-iaw was read  a first and second time and its different  clauses were considered in committee.  H.    HALLETT,  fatrutfer,' deficit or,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  GREENWOOD,   B.O.  ORBES   M.

It was  announced at the opening of the court  that the case of Guess vs. Jernvyn had  been settled. It will be remembered  that this was a case which dealt with  the sale of the Susie mine in Fairview  to J. Jermyn by Geo. A. Guess. The  contending parties settled the dispute  private^, consequent^ the new trial  which had been ordered was not proceeded with. The onty other cases of  importance were those in which Messrs.  Medill and Evers were the plaintiffs  and   Mr.   John  Hamill  defendant.    It  appears that Messrs. Medill & Son and  Mr. Evers plastered the Imperial hotel  for Mr. Hamill. The plaintiffs affirmed  that the contract wras accepted by W.  E. Medill, that they-worked by the day  for him, and Mr. Hamill not having-  paid the full amount of the contract  Mr. Medill sr. was unable to pay them  their wages. 'They secured a mechanics' lien ag-ainst the building. The defendant held that the contract was  awarded to the Snowliake Lame Co.,  which was composed of Messrs. Medill & Son and Mr. Evers, and that the  full amount to which the compare was  entitled had been paid. The case was  adjourned until the next sitting of the  court.

Christie, M.R.C.V.S., dominion  veterinary inspector, returned yesterday from Osoyoos and left immediately  for Grand Forks, where several bands  of horses are awaiting-his examination.  During- the doctor's visit at Osoyoos he  examined 285 horses belonging to prospectors bound for Yukon and the Peace  river. Four horses were condemned  because, of gianders ; they were not  ��� .allowed, to cross the line. Three came  from Walla Walla and one from Bridgeport. The state veterinary surg-e%n  has been notified of these cases.  The doctor emphatically denies the  statement published in the Palmer  Mountain Prospector, that a ninety-  day quarantine had been established  at Osoyoos. There was no excuse for  the publication of the statement. It has  worked a hardship on many prospectors who are camped 'along- the Okan-  ag-an river and who are afraid to come  north, believing-that their horses will  be quarantined. Everything possible  has been done to expedite the examination of horses at Osoyoos, care being-  taken to prevent diseased horses coming into the country. Doctor Christie  expects to return to Osoyoos early next  week, when a large band of horses is  expected from Oregon.  Mr. Theo. Kruger, the customs officer  at Osoyoos, is also kept very busy collecting duties on the larg-e amount of  goods brought into the country by  prospectors. Never before were times  so brisk at Osoyoos.  Barrett Block.  The Barrett block is nearing completion. The ground floor has been used  by the Russell Hardware Co. and W.  M. Law & Co. for some time. The second floor is handsomely finished. On  both sides of a very wide hall are large  well-lighted rooms, well adapted for  offices. The front rooms are particular^' well arrang-ed. On the third floor  is a hall 60x30 feet, capable of seating-  at least 600 people. It will probably be  opened by a ball on the 24th of May,  to be given by the baseball team to defray a portion of the expense of clearing the recreation grounds.  Freight on Beer.  A sitting-of the Small Debts Court  was held on Thursda}; last, Police Magistrate Hallett presiding. Harry Rose,  the Penticton freighter, sued E. B.  Simmons for $92 freight on several  barrels of beer hauled by him from  Penticton. Mr. Simmons did not appear and judgment was given in favor  of Rose. Mr. Simmons has since retained Mr. McEeod and will appeal  from the decision of the magistrate.  Mr. A. S. Black is acting- for Mr. Rose.

An opposition convention is to be  held at Rossland on the 26th. Among-  the candidates 'mentioned are James  Martin, David B. Bogle and Hug-h Mc-  Cutcheon.  AlvEX Henderson, a barrister of  New Westminster, has receivedc the  .government nomination for that city.  He states that he is not a straig-ht government supporter.  The people of Boundary Creek would  like to know the individual who urged  upon the government the advisability'  ���of annexing Boundary Creek to Rossland.  Attorney-General Eberts says  that because there is copper in Trail  and copper in Boundary the districts  niight be, united. He would have given  the governments reason if he had stated that there are ��� oppositionists in  Rossland and oppositionists in Boundary Creek and they.'oug'lit to be hived.  IT is reported from Ottawa that in  the event of W. W. B. Mclnnes resigning- his seat in the House of Commons,  Senator Templeman will resign, and  contest the constituency as a member  of Eatirier's cabinet. No better arrang-e-  ment could be made.  Mr. Baillle, editor of the Eort  Steele Prospector, will likely be the  opposition candidate for one of the  East Kootehays.  Fighting   The   Loan   Bill.  The opposition are making- a desperate fight against saddling- the province with a debt of $1,600,000 to build a  railway to Klondyke. They are being-  ably assisted by Joseph Hunter, M. P.  P., who was heretofore a strong government supporter. Mr. Hunter is  an aggressive fighter and it is probable that he will make matters interesting- for the government. It is  scarcely probable that the house prorogued yesterday as was announced by  Premier Turner last week.  Up   the   Main   Kettle   River.  E. E. Hibbard came down from the  Main Kettle river this week where he  has been developing some promising-  mining- properties including the Belcher. He reports considerable mining-  activity in his  section   of the country.  Speaking of the new ferry, Mr. Hibbard stated that up to the present the  ferry has been working admirably but  he fears that at high water it will become unmanageable. It was construct-  ���ed at a bad point in the river. Mr.  Hibbard believes it would have been  more advantageous for the government  to build a bridge. A bridge would cost  but little more and would obviate the  necessity for paying a man to run the  the ferry. Besides the ferry can be  operated during- the summer months  ���only. In the winter time it is dangerous crossing the river. A bridge would  be useful all the year round. Owing-  to the increased travel in that district  there is also a great necessity for a better road.  *����  i*  <Sj3|$  ������  Is prepared to supply the trade with first-class Bottled Beer  manufactured by the " Eion Brewery Company, Etd.,"  of Rossland.

Wasson of  Graiid Forks came over this week to  attend the funeral; of the late James  McConnell.  Mr. G. D. L-eyson, the well known  mining man, has secured the contract  for extending the tunnel on the Bruce  claim an additional 50 feet.  J. P. McEeod, barrister of Midway,  returned on Tuesda3r from Grand Porks  where he had some important cases at  the sitting of the County Court.  The report that the Sunset in Similk-  umeeu has been sold b\r R. A. Brown  to the B. A. Company has been confirmed hy officials of the big- corporation.  Frank Chadler came up from the  West Fork of Kettle river this week.  He reports that the ferry recentl}r  constructed is working" excellently and  is a trreat convenience to the numerous  prospectors who are rushing- into that  district. Mr. Chadler brought down  some   rich   specimens   from the   King-  Solomon upon which property he is  working-. He returned on Wednesday  after securing supplies.  The owners of the Athelstan in Wellington camp have decided to secure a  mining- plant similar to that Used at  the Winnipeg.  Mr. Corbett did not g-o to the Similka-  meen country last week as he intended. He started from his home in Summit camp but while nearing Eholt  creek his horse fell. Mr. Corbett was  rather badly bruised but it is expected  he will be able to be about in a few  days.  Mr. J. E. Boss expects that the  machinery for the Stemwinder and  Brooklyn will begin to arrive to-day.  As soon as it reaches the mines it will  be placed in position and active development work will be commenced.  Several men are now at work erecting-  the necessary buildings.  The Greenwood baseball team is  practicing- for a match with a team  from Nelson, Wash., on the 24th of  May. Several men have been at work  clearing- the baseball grounds in the  valley.

McKenzie, an experienced  Ontario teacher, came in from Nelson,  B. C, on Wednesday to act as substitute for Mr. Keith who assumes charge  of Mr. Harlan's assay business on  Monday next.

J;  11  AN   IMPORTANT   MINING   CASE.  '  !  !>.i  A mining-case involving- some nice  points in mining- law was tried at the  sitting- of the county court held in  Grand Forks on Monday last.  On December 19, 1895, Geo. W. Elliott located and recorded the Elliott  mineral claim, in Wellington camp.  No assessment work was done and on  December 21st, 1896, John Farrell located the same ground as the Confidence  mineral claim, having previously discovered mineral in place at a point  where he afterwards placed his discovery post.  On the same day about an hour after  Farrell had staked the Confidence  claim, Geo. W. Elliott relocated the  ground as the Eastern Girl, in the  name of John A. Kerr, of New York,  and recorded it the following- day.  Farrell did notrecord the Confidence at  all. In May 1897, Moses Burns, being-  aware of the staking- of the Confidence  , and Eastern Girl, located and recorded  the same ground as the Palmetta,  which he afterwards sold to Chas. Van  Ness for $500. Mr. Van Ness spent  considerable money in developing-the  property and as soon as he had made  it appear that the claim was likely to  prove valuable, the representative of  Kerr proceeded to do assessment work  for the Eastern Girl. Van Ness thereupon brought suit for a declaration  that the Palmetta was a valid claim  and for a decree that the Eastern Girl  record be cancelled on the ground that  at the time of the'location of the latter  claim the ground comprised in it was  not vacant land,by reason of FarrelPs  previous staking and occupation of the  Confidence. The case was tried before  Judg-e Spinks and a jury at Grand  Forks. The jury found (1) That Farrell  duly located the Confidence on 21st  Dec. 1896, before Elliott had staked the  Eastern Girl. (2) That Elliott did not  discover mineral .in place on the Eastern Girl location.  ��� On the findings of the jury His Honor  ordered judgment to be entered for the  plaintiff and the Eastern Girl record  was accordingly cancelled.  Toronto   Globe's   Representative.  Mr. S. T. Wood, of the editorial staff  of the Toronto Globe reached Greenwood on Sunday and spent a few hours  in the city leaving- in the afternoon for  Rossland: Mr. Wood is writing- a  series of letters for his paper and as  he made g-ood use of the time at his  disposal in Greenwood no doubt the  result will be an interesting letter  describing- the resources of Boundary  Creek district. The Globe has always  taken a lively interest in this district.  It used all its' powerful influence to  .secure railway communication for  Boundary Creek by the granting- of a  charter to Mr. Corbin.  ���Certificate of the Registration of  an Extra-Provinciai, Company.

It treated  with contempt and indifference the  opinion of the people, publicly and frequently- expressed. It turned a deaf ear  to words of wisdom from its own  friends and supporters. It made law a  redistribution bill without materially  altering- its visciously inequitable provisions.  The friends of the government know  that it has committed a public crime  and a political blunder. The bill was  intended as a powerful weapon in  thwarting- popular opinion in the next  election.    It will prove a boomerang-.  The government thought that by  separating- Boundary Greek from lOast  Yale, Donald Graham could be defeated ; that Osoyoos and Trout Creek  would swamp his majority in the northern portion of the district. A greater  political mistake was never made.  Graham will have an overwhelming-  majority south of Penticton^���almost  as g-reat as his majority north of Penticton.  The Turner government thoug-ht that  the Boundary Creek votes could be  swallowed by the greater numbers in  Rossland and that the government  candidate would have an easy victory.  But Boundary Creek will swamp any  government supporter that runs in the  constituency. The government has  left the electors of this district nothing  -but the right to cast their ballots. The  500 voters of the district will not forget that they have been gerrymandered out of existence, that they are now  a backwoods portion of the constituency of Rossland. No Boundary Creek  elector with a spark of self-respect will  forget that political justice has been  denied him by the Turner government.  The government candidate will be  handicapped from the start by the  votes of 500 electors of Boundary Creek  district.  The same dissatisfaction exists in  other parts of the province. The redistribution bill is a veritable boomerang.  Death of James McConnell.  James McConnell, one of the earliest  settlers of the Kettle River valley, died  in the Green wood hospitalon Saturday  last. The deceased entered, the hospital some months ag'o. There was but  little hope of his recovery ; his constitution had been weakened by previous  illness, a complication of pulmonary  troubles being- the cause of his death.  Mr. McConnell came to Grand Prairie  some 30 Years ago. He cultivated the  beautiful farm whi h he sold to E. M.  Johnson. He was the original locator  of the Volcanic mine  and had   several  sts.
