CRISIS in the history of the province will be  reached within six weeks. The general elections  will decide whether the province is-to be redeemed from the thraldom of Turnerism or is it to be  retarded by a reckless and incompetent administration. Boundary Creek as well as other sections of the province will shortly .be invaded by  g-overnment campaigners. They will button hole the electors and take advantage of their credulity and cupidity.  The cariipaigner will make promises0 which can never be  fulfilled. He will.claim that he represents political principles which are the antithesis of those his party has followed. He is irrepressible. He jollies the elector, kisses  the baby and natters the housewife. He succeeds in keeping the sins of his party in the background by his promises,  his sophistries and blandishments. He is dangerous and  will stand watching.  The Boundary Creek  elector  should   not   forget.    His  memory must not be clouded by the desigms of  the  professional politician.    He should remember that the true gauge  of the party is its past record.    The controlling influence in  the coming election should be the record of the government,  the treatment whichit has   accorded   this  district.    Heavy  promises of better things will'be made  by the  government  and its agents to offset any feeling of  antagonism because  of the neglects and insults of  the  past.    Similar  promises  have been made before and they will be made again.   J^very  political makeshift and clumsy expedient will be resorted to  in order to allure the elector from his determination to oust  the Turner g-overnment from power.    The elector  must not  forget that   the   Turner   government is   responsible for a  redistribution bill that forces the province into   a more disgraceful political condition  than was  Lngland   before the  Reform   bill   of   1832.    He   should particularly remember  that its most vicious feature is the gerrymander  of Boundary Creek.    It is a bill which curtails the political power of  the Boundary Creek elector and is an insult to the  importance of the district.    The elector should also not forget that  the Turner government made every effort   and   used every  expedient to delay the development of this district by retarding railway construction.    He should   also  remember that  in purely local matters the district has been neglected, that  while money was lavishly expended elsewhere, the people of  this district were allowed to carry out   local  improvements  by private   contributions   while   materially   assisting  the  other taxpaj-ers of the province in   the rather difficult   task  of providing- the needful for extravag-ant and   improvident  ministers.        ,  The Boundary Creek'elector has nothing to thank the  government for. To a bountiful Providence, a generous  Nature and his own exertions he owes whatever advantages  he enjoys. Fortunately the government cannot expropriate  its ledg*es of rich ore, nor can neglect nor hostile legislation  decrease their value. It is true that the government imposes a tax on miners in this district while the employes c-f  the Dunsmuirs' are allowed to work underground without a  tax. It is equally true that every other act of the government relating to Boundary Creek was calculated to harass  the miner and discourage development.  In the heat of an election  campaign, nothing should be  forg-otten.  The coming election affords the Boundary Creek  voter a chance of assisting in the   work   of   cleansing  the  province of its political leprosy, of extricating* it from a  slough of political degradation* of taking a step forward in  the direction of honest, progressive,  rnent.  economical govern-  The elector must hot forget the past nor take too  much  stock in   the  politician's  promises of better  things   in the  future. '���".'���  - " ��� '_�����_    _���*'��.   . _������;<���  %"*    flF ���   *"�����"  WEAK   LEADERS.  coming-  The party supporting the government in the  contest, are handicapped because its leaders are lacking- in  every quality that inspires confidence. Their records are  against them. The premier is a weakling; He is naturally  honest but lacks sufficient force of character todominate  those around him. He is the victim of his colleagues in the  cabinet. He lacks every quality necessary to properly govern the province at the present time. The president of the  council is an automaton, the salaried machine of the Dunsmuirs. Whether he has any views of his own matters little, he simply carries out the wishes of his masters and for  this reason can never command the confidence of the people.  In any other country outside of British Columbia the paid  servant of a large corporatioii would be disqualified from  being a member of the government.  The Attorney-general is the personification of indolence. He has ability but is too lazy to assert himself. His  work is left iii charge of subordinates and the only use he  has for the responsible office which he holds is to draw his  salary.  The provincial secretary is a sophistical humbug. He  hides his designs behind hypocritical dissertations on  abstruse subjects and delivers pedantic dscourses on altruism or bimetalism while niching valuable provincial lands  for his railway schemes or foisting- private property upon  the Lnglish investor. He has used his political position to  further private interests and is one of the  most dangerous  ��� . o ��� '   ���''        ���  men in the cabinet.  The Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works beggars  description. He is an indescribable combination of unfitness  for any public position and unqualified failure in the important office which he holds. He has but little ability and less  will power. If the members of the government were to compete for a prize given for incompetence the Chief Commissioner would easily be the winner.  It is not surprising that Hon. Mr. Turner is not anxious  to go to the country with such a combination.    For  several  months he has been looking- around for men who could raise  his   government   to a   standard   more in keeping with the  importance of the province.    He realized the fact  that in a  province where party lines are not drawn the personnel of a  cabinet is a matter of much importance.    A   strong man, a  striking   individuality   in   the   Turner  government would  strengthen   it   more   than   anything else.    The   desperate  attempts made by Mr. Turner to strengthen his cabinet were  postively amusing.    First Joe  Martin  was approached but  " Joe " was too shrewd a politician to take chances  on   any  Turner combination.    Then Mr. Turner  made overtures to  the  Liberals.    It   is  not  yet two years since Mr.    Turner  gleefully told the electors of  Nelson   that  his  government  was a  conservative   government   but   political exigencies  forced him to treat with the liberals.    His   plan  was to dismiss three of his ministers, take three liberals into the cabinet and then tell the people that his government was a liberal government.    Then W.-W. B. Mclnnes, the bo}* orator  was sought after and it is understood that should this political Ishmaelite succeed in  getting the electors  of Comox to  return him and should the Turner party   have   a   majority  after the next election,   he   will be   taken   into the cabinet.  It is   a remote   possibility   upon   which   to  risk   a political  future.  We are strongly of the opinion that the people will meet  with better success than Mr. Turner.in selecting timber for  a cabinet. There are already in the field sufficient strong  opposition men to ensure a capable government after the  general election. I I  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  j I  LACK   ORGANIZATION.  Hon. J. H. Turner goes to the  country at the next elections as premier for  the first time, and  while he has taken  a prominent  part  in many provincial  elections he has never  before  had the  responsibility of acting*  as the   leader  in   a   political   campaign.    He   is not  much of a politician, and goes into the  approaching contest with his followers  poorly organized.    It would be uncharitable to say of Mr. Turner that he  is  not capable of marshaling his party in  a solid and  enthusiastic  phalanx, but  certain it is that he has quite overlooked the important need  of  preparation.  His followers are like  sheep without a  shepherd.    He does not seem to'appreciate that the day has gone by when a  political campaign can be conducted in  British  Columbia  like it was 20 years  ago.    He  seems  content to  abide the  result of the elections upon, the  record  he has made in the  legislature during,  the past four   years.    It  is  extremely  fortunate for Mr. Turner that his opponents are in an unorganized condition,  worse, if possible, than the*Ministerial  lists.���Rossland Miner.  Real   Estate   Deal.  Greenwood real estate is rapidly   in  creasing in  value.  Some  months ago  there was no sale for business lots at  $500 ; to-day, it is impossible to purchase Government or Copper street lots  at a considerable advance of that price.  This week Friz Haussener. sold two  lots on Copper street opposite T. Gully's  furniture store for $1,400 cash. The  purchaser was Mr. Wickwire of Prince  Edward Island. He has been in the  city for two weeks seeking . investments. He secured two.. of ' the best  building lots in the city but . also paid  the largest price ever received for  Greenwood real estate. Since his purchase adjoining* lots have, increased in  value.  Other Greenwood lots have changed  hands during the week. The assurance of railway* construction encourages biryers.  Personal Mention,  Thos. Walsh returned from Rossland  this week.  W. S. Keith has opened his new  assay office on Copper street.  J. P. Harlan and 1$. C. Brown have  gone on a prospecting trip to the reservation.  Mr. Patterson the Rossland engineer  went over to the Similkameen.counti*}*  last Saturday.  D. R. Campbell returned on Saturday last from a business trip to Winnipeg.  J. A. Coryell, P, L,. S., has gone to  the Salmon river where he has a large  amount of.survey work to complete.  J. A. Schubert of Fairview has been  appointed road superintendent for  Southern Yale, JU V. Cuppage having  resig*ned some time ag*o.  C. A. R.

Premier Turner is a great patriot.  His patriotism was such that he would  not consent to D. C. Corbin building  into Boundary Creek on' any terms.  When the (-proposal was made in the  house that the Yukon railway contractors, who receive a $1,600,000 bonus,  should be obliged to employ none but  British subjects upon the work,Premier  Turner voted against it. His patriotism may retard the railway development of Yale and Kootenay, but he is  careful to.see that it does not interfere  with the profits of his railway promoting friends. For this reason Premier Turner is a great patriot.���Nelson Tribune.  The   Inquiry   Closed.  The royal commission appointed by  the government to make inquiry as to  the conduct of the business of the lands  and works has finished its labors. Government employe R.F.Tolmie of Nelson  was severely cross-examined and admitted having correspondence with the  premier regarding crown grants issued, alleged to have been so issued for  an improper consideration.

A  smoking, concert followed the dinner,  and the day's sport was finished��� with  a dance in McNicol's hall.  Greenwood  had  several  crack baseball plaj^ers in the team who could field  a ball ..anywhere   while   Midway   was  weak in fielders.    This  accounted  for  ' the defeat of the   Midway   team.    The  score is given below.  GREENWOOD.  ':. 1st. tunings. 2nd txnixgs.

A. B. Clabon, secretaiw of the Ross-  land Opposition committee, came over  from Grand Forks oil Siturday last,  '4nd endeavored to induce the electors  of Greenwood to send deleg-atesto: the  Opposition convention which was held  in Rossland on Wednesday last. The  electors of Green wood decided not to  "'"take'.'any part in the convention. It  ���was felt that the Rossland committee  had started out by :. ssuming that  Boundary Creek district was a political  nonentity, since they fix the place and  date for a convention without consulting the people in this district. It wis  also felt that the number, of delegates  who would go- from Bonn dun- creel:  'would have but little weight in a convention composed chiefly of Rossi an 1  peop e.  Prominent O vpo._'tloLiist-_ in G.-.ivid  Forks promised'to pursue a similar  course as Greenwood, but a meeting  vrash-.1rric-.lI3- called , in Grand Forks  on Saturday evening and five delegates  appointed. The 'deleg ites apoointed  were John A. M tnley, C. H. M_-C;irter,  P.McCallum, K- Spraggett   and Chas.  Van Ness.  Mr. D. B. Bogle visited Greenwood  on Sunday. He was one of the candidates before the convention on, Wednesday. Mr. Bogle is a brilliant newspaper man, an excellent stump speaker  and an aggressive oppositionist. He  returned to Rossland on Monday. Mr.  Clabon went to ''Midway on Sunday, ,  but; got no delegates there. He returned to Rossland on Tuesday.  The   Gieenwood   Cemetery.  The Greenwood cemetery is anything  but a credit to the city. Unfenced,  uncleared and lineare'd for it is a reproach to the people of the, town. The  location of the cemetery is a mistake.  T_0vei"3r one who has confidence in the  growth of the town must admit that  within one year, the ground immediately surrounding the cemetery will be  dotted with residences and then an agitation will be started for the removal  of "the bodies to a more  suitable   bury-  The ground set aside for  If  ing grounds.  a, cemetery is valuable. If sold it  would buy a suitable piece of ground  some distance out, pay for fencing the  same and for .making if look, respectable. Action should be taken at once.  It is easier to change fthe location now  than in a year hence when there will  probably be twice 'as- many graves as  at present. No one could possibly object to such an arrangement as there  is nothing that reduces the value of  real estate so much as the proximity of  a burying ground.  A   Daily 'Mail ������ Service.--���-.  - In. a letter to a resident of-Greenwood  Postoffice Inspector Fletcher writes  that the attention of the postmaster-  general has been called to the necessity  for a daily mail service between Greenwood and Grand Forks. As soon as  the department at Ottawa makes a decision the postoffice insj)ector will at  once take action. In the meantime  the Snodgrass stage line is giving a  prompt and regular service and is carrying the mail gratuitously on alter-  o nate daysfe It is hoped-that the post-  office department will see its way clear-  to grant the necessarv money for a  daily mail service between Greenwood  and Grand Forks.  ���XZ5.-XZ3TTZ??zr, S.V.S WB  zzsttsirztt^MZXJX^r.vaiK.x&r'&m te-Trtirtj  Awarded  Highest Honors���World's  Fair,  Gold Medal, Mid winter :Fair.   .

Without discussing the political wisdom of the residents of Grand Forks,  who were instrumental in sending delegates to the Rossland convention, it  strikes us forcibly that the interests of  Boundary Creek as a district would  have been better served had Grand  Forks censulted other portions of the  district before taking action. When  the call was made by certain parties in  Rossland for delegates to a convention,  prominent oppositionists in Greenwood  and Grand Forks discussed the advisability of sending delegates. It was  then decided that an effort would be  made to hold the people of Boundary  Creek district together, and that no  delegates should be , sent. Greenwood  remained, faithful- to this arrangement,  but Grand Forks succumbed to the  first pressure from Rossland, and  elected delegates without consulting  the electors of the other portions- of  the district.  . We do not find fault with Grand  Forks for sending -deleg-ates. It may  have been a wise'move to do so. The  point v\*e wish to make is this: If  Boundary Creek is to maintain its  identity as a permanent district, if it is  not to undergo 'Complete political  annihilation, if its residents are to have  any political power or political influence, they should work together.  The interests of GJrand Forks are the  interests of Greenwood, and the interests of Greenwood are the interests  of Midway, and what concerns these  three towns aiso_coujerns the mining  districts surro."Tiding them.  The vicious gerrymander, which the  government has bfegn pleased to call a  redistribution bill, 'has dealt such a  blow to the political life of this district,, that the people should work more  its political existence than for party for  victory. Such a campaign migg t not  pjrove satisfactory to the politicians,  but would be in the best interests of  the district, provided the people stick  together. The initial move is unfortunately no proof that they will do  so, since Grand Forks has been pleased  to act-without consulting her neighbors  A   MINING   DEAL.  Messrs. E. C. Cargill  of  Armstrong  and E. Wickwire of Prince Edward Island  have  secured  ��.11  Dr.   Christie's  valuable  mining   interests  in the dis- i  trict.    The deal'was made through Mr. ;  W. B. Paton.    The properties sold are  located  chiefly in   Skylark camp   and  include }4 interest in the  Nightingale,  % interest in the Sterling,   l/2   interest  in the Oro, y2  interest  in   the Clipper,  Yi interest in the Springdale, )/$ interest in the National Belle, ]A, interest in  the Golden Age, all in Skylark  camp;  also the " You Bet," in  Central camp,  and the Marigold, in Wellington camp.  The price paid was considerable and in  cash.  Messrs. Cargill and Wickwire also  secured a thirty days option on other  interests in the properties including y2  interest in the Sterling, Nightingale  and Mountain View owned by R.  Evans. y2 interest in the Oro aud the  Clipper owned by A. S. Black, % interest in the National Belle owned by A.  S. Black and C. Scott Galloway and %  interestin the Golden Age.  Considerable development work has  been carried out on a number of the  properties.  Hotel Arrivals.  The following were the arrivals at  the International hotel during the  week :  E.

A party from Spokane bound for  Teslin Lake passed through Anaconda  on Thursday. They were under the  leadeship of Guy Brown, a- Spokane  newspaper man and had 12 pack horses.  Usually Spokane parties come into  Canada at Oso3roos.  Mr. D. C. Corbin of the Spokane  Falls & Northern Raihya3* has donated  $2,500 towards making -a g*ood wagon  road between Kettle Falls and Republic. This is the shortest route to Republic from Spokane and is the route  Mr. Corbin intends using for- his railway.     ���  C. E. Gault, of Montreal', one of the  directors of the Old Ironsides company,  has been making some purchases of  mining properties in Wellington and  Greenwood camps.

An extraordinary g-eneral meeting- of  ihe shareholders of the Boundary  Creek Mining & Milling Co., was held  in Rendell & Co's. hall on Thursday  last. Mr. D. A. Holbrook the president of the company was in the chair  and Mr. Jacobs acted as secretary.  Mr. Black stated that the meeting  had been called at the request of certain shareholders who should come forward and say what they had to say.  Mr. Leamy remarked ' that he had  heard a number of rumors regarding a  deal and he would like to hear a statement from Mr. Holbrook.  Mr. Black pointed out that the minutes of the last meeting of the directors  would give the information asked   for.  Mr. Jacobs then read the portion of  the minutes dealing with option g-iven  to the London & Canada Syndicate.  The conditions of the options are to  the effect that all the, unalloted treasury stock amounting- to 480,000 shares  .shall be purchased by  the  London &  Canada -Syndicate, 250,000 shares at 5  cents and the balance 230,000 shares at  10 cents. Of the first 250,000,in 60 days  50,000 shares is to be taken and another 50,000 shares in 120 days. The  shares are to be.issued in the name of  D. W. Holbrook * acting as trustee for  the company and are to be transferred  . through the Bank of Montreal at Rossland. In order that the London &  Canada Syndicate may have a control-  ing interest in the company Mr. D. A.  Holbrook transferred to Hector McRae  the representative of the Syndicate  300,000 shares for ��3,000 and this  amount has already been paid to Mr.  Holbrook. This gives the syndicate  780,000 shares in the company whose  entire stock amounts to 1,500,000 shares.  The syndicate have the right to appoint the managing director and the  majority of the directors of the Boundary Creek M. & M. Co.  Mr.   Ross  pointed   out   that   by the  terms of the option' over  $35,000 would .  be placed in the treasury for develop  ment purposes. He considered the sale  an excellent one as far as the small  shareholders were concerned and  thought Mr. Holbrook was entitled to  much credit for negotiating the  same.  Mr. Black then moved and Mr. Ross  seconded that the action of the directors in making* arrangments for the sale  of 480,000 shares of treasury stock to  the London & Canada Syndicate be  and is hereby approved. This resolution was carried.  Before adjourning Mr. Jacobs stated,  at the request of Mr. Holbrook,  that the London & Canada Syndicate  intended going to work in a few days.  Sixty foot of tunneling* will probably  be carried out on the G. A. R., also development work on the D. A. and other  properties of the company.

GETTING   MORE   GENEROUS,  The provincial government are getting generous. Usually the answers of  its members to Boundary Creek have  been curt negatives.

Sir :���I have the honor to state in  repl3* to your letter of the 17th, inst.,  received to-day, that the government  is-prepared to reimburse the city for  any expenditure incurred in the care of  indigent sick coming from outside the  city.

CONVENTION   POSTPONED.  The following is the Rossland Miner's  report of the convention held in Rossland on Thursday last. As the Miner  :. shows considerable anxiety in;making  the convention a failure, the report  must be taken with a grain of salt:  The Oppositionists of the Rossland  riding have postponed their .much-  talked of convention, and the few delegates who were present from the  Boundary Creek country have accomplished their purpose. The Boundary  Creekers were an insignificant minority so far as numbers were concerned, but they can give their Rossland brethren cards and spades as  politicians and best them.  The Boundary Creek  delegation  arrived here only to discover that nearly,  every  other  Rossland delegate to the  convention was   a  candidate for nomination.   They lost no time in deciding  on a plan of campaign  to  govern during   their   stay   here.    They  realized  that  the   east  side  of  the riding was  hopelessly divided and  saw  an   excellent opportunity to arrange matters so  that a west side man might  in the end  secure   the   nomination.    They maintain  that the  Opposition   vote in the  Boundary Creek country   is entitled to  more   consideration    than     has   been  evinced by the east side delegates. ;   ,  When the convention met in secret,  conclave last night, the Boundary  delegates soon had it arranged that  the meeting should be postponed until  June 8. Immediately following this  they suggested that the convention be  held at Grand Forks instead of Rossland, and offered to pay the hotel and  transportation expenses of all the east  side delegates if the proposal.; was accepted." But a motion to this effect  was discretely withdrawn when it was  seen that the Rossland men were ready  to refuse the offer. It was finally arranged that Rossland shall be the  place for holding the next convention.  The Trail delegation held aloof from  the discussion. They, found themselves in the same boat as the. Boundary delegates. Rossland had a majority in the convention and seemed determined to hold the fort for a Rossland man. It is therefore not surprising that Trail was ready to join issues  with the west side men, and this, it  seems, they have done, though no definite arrangements has been made between the two factions.  It seems that the result of the convention last night would have been entirely different but for two reasons,  one of which is James Martin's timidity and his refusal to annouce two weeks  ago his willingness to accept the nomination, and the other is the attempt of  Messrs. Bogle and Clabon to obtain  proxies for the convention from the  electors of the Boundary country.  It is almost a certainty that Martin  could have been nominated last night  if he had taken the people of Boundary  into his confidence before they selected  their delegates. By this action Martin  has lost the confidence of the people of  the Boundary country, and they are determined to nominate an able man  from the west side instead. They figure that they are entitled to twelve  Voles in the convention and confidently  rely on five votes from Trail, making  a total of 17. This gives- them within  one of as many votes as Rossland can  muster, provided the latter   are   voted  solid to a man. The westsiders say  that with the dissension that prevails  among the Rossland delegates, they  are certain of victory.  During the last week Messrs. Mc-  Vicar and Son have been busy sacking  the rich ore taken from the Strathmore  formerly the St. Bernard. It will be  shipped to a smelter in a few days.  Delicious  Toothsome  TOBACCOS.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  WELLINGTON   CAMP.  Althoug-h very little has been written  about the claims in Wellington camp,  with the exception of the Winnipeg  and Golden Crown, there are a large  number of very promising* properties  in the camp on which considerable development work has been done. Work  is being pushed vigorously on the  Winnipeg, under the superintendence  of D. Mcintosh, one of the principal  stockholders in the company and the  locator of the claim? In all about 700 ft.  of development (consisting of shafts,  open cuts, drifting- and crosscutting)  has been done, and the results are so  satisfactory that at present none of the  company's stock is on the market. The  assays from the ore body run from $35  up into the hundreds. The machinery  on the property consists of a boiler,  steanihoist and pump. The Winnipeg  will be prepared to ship ore when the  railway arrives.  On the Golden Crown, an adjoining  claim to the Winnipeg, located in 1894  by W. Porter and since stocked,, the  work done consists of. an 80-foot shaft,  a 300-foot tunnel and open cuts. A  boiler, hoist and steam drills were installed the past winter. At present  only a small force is at work on the  property, but will be increased in a  short time.  Very little, excepting surface work,  has been done on the Calumet and  Hecla, but from their location it is  reasonable to assume that, with development, both properties will show  up well.  The Sissy, an adjoining claim to the  Golden Crown, was loeated in 1895 by  John Mack, and is owned by the  locator, Duncan Mcintosh and Wm.  Porter. The work on the property  consists of a 16Tfoot shaft and two  open cuts, one 45 feet and the other 25  feet in length and averaging about 5  feet in depth.  The Sinbab was located in 1896 by  John Fraser, R. S. Fraser and John  Kelly. Development consists of two  open cuts and a 20-foot shaft, uncovering a 2-footJedg-e of quartz, carrying iron pyrites and copper. Assays  run |about $16 in g-old. A third interest in the claini was purchased last  fall by Walter Sterling of Vancouver.  The Pride of the West, an adjoining  claim to the Sinbab, was located in  1895 by Jack Farrell and W. Porter  and is a recent purchase of W. Sterling.  Three assessments have been done.  The Hartford, Ranger, J. and R.  fraction and Hartford fraction are, a  group of very promising claims owned  by John Rogers and H. L- Jones. On  the Hartford there is a 15-foot shaft  and three open cuts. The ledge is  quartz, carrying gold and copper,  average assays running about $20 in  all values. The claini was located in  1895 and about $350 has been expended  in development, besides being* surveyed. The Ranger was located in  the same year by Jno. Rog-ers, and development work consists of a 30-foot  shaft. The lead is quartz, about 30  inches -in   width   and   carrying good  values in both gold and copper. The  I. and R. fraction is an adjoining-  claim to the Golden Crown, and was  located in 1896 by John   Rogers and H.  L. Jones. About $150 has been expended in development, the, work consisting- of a shaft and open cuts. The  ledge is similar in character to that of  Hartford   and   averag-es about $15  the  in all  values.    The  Hartford  fraction  was located in 1897 and lies between  the Hartford, Ranger and Hard Cash.  All the claims in this group have been  survej'ed.  The Hard Cash was located in 1896  by Fred Shonquist. On the claim two  shafts, 12 and 15 feet have been sunk.  The claini adjoins both the Winnipeg  and Golden Crown. The property has  been purchased b3r Messrs. Nadeti and  McArthur of Greenwood. The ledge is  quartz carrying g-ood values in gold  and copper.  The Rosebud, another of! Mr. Sterling's properties, has had one assessment done on.it and has been surveyed.  Located by R. S. Fraser in 1895.  The Black Bear was   located   in 1897  ���'by G. H. Brown and adjoins the Pride  of the West.    A 20-foot shaft has been  sunk   on   the  property.    The ledg*e   is  quartz, carrying gold and copper.  The Silver Star, Free Coinag*e and  Seignorag*e are three claims owned by  Stack aud McDonald, of Rossland, and  lie to the west of the Hartford and  Ranger. Development work on these  claims consists of four shafts. The  ore^ body is quartz carding* good  values in copper, gold and silver.  The Athelstan was located in 1896  by John Mack, and adjoins the Hecla  and Calumet; The claini has been,  bonded to Fred Oliver of Spokane for  $15,000. Development work consists  of two shafts, one 60 and the other 36  feet and about 100 feet of surface work.  On account of surface water, work  in the shaft was abandoned this spring-  arid a boiler, hoist, pump and drills,  which are now being put in place, were  ordered. It is expected that the  machinery will be in working order in  the course of a couple of weeks, and  a force of men will be put at work developing* the property. The ledge is a  large one, and is arsenical iron, carrying hig-h values in gold.  On the Oro, owned by McMynn, Op-  penheimer and Taylor, there is a 30-  foot tunnel, showing a strong quartz  lead carrying $40 in gold and a small  percentage in copper.  The Wellington, Keystone, Vancouver and Columbia are owned by J. M.  Taylor and G. W. Rumberg-er. On the  Wellington there is a 30-foot shaft,  and drifts of 15 and 10 feet. The ore  body is arsenical iron, running about  $20 to the ton. The Keystone is on the  same lead as the Wellington and about  30 feet of work has boon done on it.  On the Vancouver there is a 32-foot  shaft. The ledge is quartz, about 2  feet wide, carrying gold, silver and  copper. Assays run from $40 to $50 in  all values. The Columbia adjoins the  Vancouver.  The Mollie  Prichard, Jack Pot, Iron  Clad, Buttercup Key West and Beaver  are also very promising claims.  Boundary Valley   Lodge,  No. 38, I.O.O.F.

In   the   dim   distant   future     when  Greenwood is a city of 1,000,000 inhabitants arid Boundary Creek is the greatest mining-  district   on earth, the irrepressible old timer will regale an interested   audience   with the story   of the  peculiar way in which oil was first discovered in Greenwood.    It will be more  interesting*  than   the   "history   of the  IyeRoi" or the  "discovery  of coal at  Nanaimo," or the dozen other interesting stories   that   are   now   going   the  rounds of the province.  "   Living*  on   upper Greenwood   street  and   below   the   hospital   are   several  families who are anything but kickers.  The}* inhaled and   endured   the   most  malodorous effluvium for months without a murmur but when the sun gained  more warmth,the sweetness which usually   permeates    the   Greenwood     air  seemed   to   wander  still    farther  off.  The long   suffering residents  referred  to, mildly  suggested  to  the  Board of  Health and the   city   council   that  Dr.  R. W.   Jakes  had surreptitiously constructed a sewer  to  Greenwood  street  and   that several  millions  of. typhoid  and other germs were   industriously at  work   manufacturing stench to   tantalize Greenwood street residents.  The Board of Health thought the  question so important that they referred it to the whole council. The council  resolved itself into a committe of the  whole and headed by the mayor, they  marched boldly up to the scene of  trouble. With noses attuned to a high  pitch they soon came to the decision  that the smell was not of the sewer  kind but something heretofore foreign  to Boundary Creek. At last a coal oil  expert came along and he informed  those around him that many a district  would give much nioney for the smell  that appeared to give them so much  trouble; that it was nothing else  than the odor of coal oil, and that the  oil was oozing out of the mountain at  the point where all the trouble arose.  Others having experience in oil countries corroborated this statement. The  announcement appeared to take a great  deal of unpleasantness out of the smell  and one member of the Board of Health  mildly suggested that he could not  ���understand why so much fuss should  be made, that the odor was not at all  unpleasant.  Messrs. Wood and Galloway are going to prospect for oil. Who knows  but that Greenwood maj* yet become a  great oil producer as well as a g*reat  milliner centre.  A   Well   Earned   Holiday.  Mr. W. J. Harber, the managing-  ���director of the Boundary Creek Printing and Publishing Co., left on Saturday last for Vernon. He and Mrs.  Harber intend spending a three months'  holiday at Vernon and Okanagan _L,ake.  Mr. Harber never left Greenwood since  he started The Times nearly two years  ag-o so the holiday he has taken has  been well earned. During* his absence,  his position will be occupied by Mr. J.

E-_a_*--tsM-_--gra---_u^  THE   BIDS   WERE   OPENED.  A dispatch to the Spokesman-Review  tinder date of May 16th, states that  " the, Canadian Pacific Railway Company is actively pushing- the extension  into the Boundary country-. Bids were  opened at the general offices of the  Columbia & Western here today for the  building- of this extension from Robson into the Boundary district. The  line will be 100 miles in leng-th, the  estimated cost is $3,000,000. The bids  were wired to Montreal, to the head  offices of the Canadian Pacific railway.  The contract ma}* not be let before  June 1.  It is not generall}-known that the  ���Canadian Pacific railway has not publicly called for bids for this work, but  liad asked several responsible contractors to offer estimates.  A number of the contractors have  arrived in town, having come in over  the proposed line to familiarize themselves with the work, so that they  eould   bid   intelligently.    McKenzie &  Mann, Boomer, Winters & Parsons,  W. R. McFrawe, James Poupaw, P.  J/arson and other well known contractors have been in Trail and have submitted bids.  The  company   evidently  expects   to  push this work to an immediate finish,  as the offices at this place  are crowded  with engineers  preparing  plans   and  arranging details.  The road will connect with  the  C. &  W. at Robson, thence up the lower  Arrow lake to Dog creek, up this stream  to McCrea pass, thence down McCrea  creek to Christina lake to Cascade  City ; along Kettle river to Grand  Forks, up the North Fork and Brown's  creek to Eholt pass, down Eholt creek  to Boundary creek and through Greenwood, Anaconda, and Boundary Falls  to Midway. This 100 miles of road  will be something of a record-breaker,  as it is proposed to have it completed  before the close of the present year.  The line is most difficult, -filled with  engineering problems, much tunneling  and  costly   bridging,   necessitating   a  great outlay of money. Vice-President Shaughnessey, of the Canadian  Pacific railway, will be in Trail early  in June to definitely settle many important points of railroad work.  The plans and specifications are  complete for a change of the narrow  gauge between Trail and'Rossland to  standard gauge. The Tiger switchback will be removed, the grade lessened and curves eased considerabl3r.  The estimate of the cost of the work is  $100,000. It is not postively known  ��� when the reconstruction work will begin]"   Returned   From   England.  ���Mr. E. M. F. Munns of the Recordia  Syndicate returned from Ivondon on  Wednescla}* last. He reports that a  great deal of interest is being taken in  British Columbia mining properties in  .Uondoti but that the general mining  market is very dull at present. Work  will not be resumed on the Anaconda  mine for some time. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.

H. Harrison  acting  for  the  syndi-  ' cate controlling the B.C. mine in Sum-  ��� mit   camp,   paid   over    to   John     W.  Keoug-h   & Sons,   the sum  of ...$27,000.  This is the largest individual payment  ever made in Greenwood  with  respect  to Boundary Creek mining-properties.  The B. C.   was  bonded nine months  ago for $60,000.    It was then a prospect  but the indications were  so   encouraging that Mr.   Harrison   had  no hesita-,  ti.oi'i in giving the bond at that figure.  He at once went to work to develop the  property.    A-strain plant was secured,  a shaft sunk 160 feet.    About 400 feet  ���of drifting was carried out on the upper  level and 100 feet  on the   lower   level.  The development was in ore nearly the  whole of the time with   the   result that  there   is     now    1200   tons  . of    high  .grade    copper     ore     on    the     dump.  The  first pay men t  en   the   bond   was  made six months ago.    Before making  the $27,000 payment  the B. C. was ex-  perted by Dr. Hatch, an Lng-lish   mining engineer of long-experience.    That  the payment has been made is the best  evidence that the property is anything  but a disappointment to.the syndicate.  The deal was  arranged  by  G. H. Collins who secures a 10 per cent, commission.  The history of the B. C. has been  told-so frequently that it is unnecessary to repeat it., Messrs. Keoug.h &  Sons have made a snug fortune out of,  -what was a  mere prospect a year  ago.  An   Improved   Mail  Service.  . Messrs. W. J. Snodgrass &,-Sons  have established a daily stage line between Grand Forks and are carrying  the mails both ways daily. As Messrs.  Snodgrass & Sons have already demonstrated that they know how a stage  line should be conducted there is some  assurance that the service from Greenwood to Grand Forks will be better  than in the past. Mr. W. J. Snodgrass  came over from Okanagan Falls on  Sunday and spent several clays at  Grand Forks. Four powerful horses  capable of hauling the stage over the  mountain at a good rate of speed were  brought from Penticton for the Grand  Forks line.  Corbin's  Charter.  With characteristic modesty some of  the provincial,papers inveigh bitterly  against the granting of the Kettle  River Railway charter. For ourselves,  we do not mind who constructs that or  any other road, so long as the way is  opened for British capital, and a fair-  field and no favor shown to all comers.  Obviously we here are as vitally interested in securing-an all-Canadian route  to the Klondyke as seeing the Boundary Creek district developed, if possible, by Anglo-Canadian enterprise.  We, are, of course, open to be convinced that the more important, because  permanent, traffic of Kootenay will be  impaired, since Mr. D. C. Corbin has  secured his charter, or  that  the Victo  ria, Vancouver"'& Eastern, as projected  by the C. P. R., or under its auspices,  would only -accentuate the monopolistic tendency of this company.���British  Columbia Review, London, JOng.  POLITICAL   NOTES.

The committee appointed to write to  the Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co.,  re_rardiii_r securing a connection here,  have received a reply7 to their communication. It is from Mr. Salisbury the  manager of the company and suggests  that the company would be willing to  extend the line to this city if the citizens of Greenwood would clear the-  rig-lit of wav between Grand Forks and  Greenwood, and erect the poles. The  Vernon & Nelson Telephone Company  is anything but modest. It asks the  citizens of Greenwood to bonus them  to the extent of nearly $3,000 to build  its line to this city. In order to secure  a telephone line Greenwood would be  willing to contribute a reasonable bonus. It is rather remarka.ble that the  company did not , ask Greenwood to  buy- the wire and string it.  A letter from W. B. Aris to W. T.  Smith thi-ows considerable light- on  this question. Mr. Aris is the manager of the Spokane & British Columbia  Telephone Company. His company  has already a wire into. Republic and  is now bus-y- running its line from Boss-  burg to Cascade City. Here they must  leave Canada for the Canadians. Mr.  Aris, however, is a compassionate  gentleman and he has made arrangements to furnish the denizens of Grand  Forks and Greenwood with the advantages of telephone communication. He  entered into a contract with/the Vernon  & Nelson Telephone Co., a Canadian  institution, to extend the American  telephone system from the international boundary line to Grand Forks  and Greenwood. Mr. Aris stated in  his letter that if Greenwood were on  the American side of the line his company would have had a line thereby  this time but the Canadian company  being slower going than the American  the contract allows them until the 1st  of July to have the telephone line in  Greenwood.  Now if the Vernon & Nelson Company has entered into such a contract  its gall in asking the citizens of Green-,  wood to clear the right of way and  erect the poles is positively amusing.  The Greenwood people would be almost  as extravagant as the Turner government if it heavily bonussed a company  to do what it contracted to do without  any reference to a bonus.  An   Important   Deal.  Mr. D. A. Holbrook while in Rossland sold a large block of shares in the  Boundary Creek M. & M. Co., to an  Fnglish Syndicate. The syndicate by  the terms of the deal will have a controlling interest in the companj.-. The  first cash payment has been made and  the properties owned by the company  .will be thoroughly developed. The B.  C. M. & M. Co. own 14 claims in Providence camp.

S4 THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  SHIFTING   THE   RESPONSIBILITY.  The provincial government, not satisfied with allowing* the residents of  Boundary Creek district to ; pay for  public improvements while contributing- extensively to the provincial exchequer, are now showing a determination to make the City of Greenwood  shoulder the responsibility for the care  of the indigent sick residing outside  the city limits'.  Some four weeks ago, an unfortunate miner .seriously--ill was brought  to Greenwood from "Wellington camp.  He had no means to procure medical  relief and the City Board of Health  rather than see him die uncared for  ordered his removal to the hospital.  Mayor Wood wrote to W.-G-. McMynn  regarding the case and he forwarded  the Mayor's letter to the government  agent at Vernon., The following reply  was received :  Dear Sir :���Referring to your letter  of the 25th tilt., I beg to say that I am  in receipt of a reply from Mr. Norris,  in which he says " that from the facts  as submitted by Mr. Wood, I gather  that the man was living in Greenwood*  at the time he was taken charge of by  the city authorities, in which case under section 66 of the Municipal Clauses  Act the city council should make suitable provision for his relief."  W. G. McMynn.  ' Mr. Norris' reference to Section 66 of  the Municipal Clauses Act was scarcely  called for. The, members of the council areas familiar with the section as  he is. It states "that it shall be the  duty of every city municipality whether  created under any general act for the  time being in force or any special act,  to make suitable provision for ITS poor  and destitute." The council do not  wish to escape the responsibility thrown  upon them by that section, but no one  other than an officer of the Turner  government would suggest that a sick  man brought from a mining camp  eight miles distant and left in a public  house, properly belonged to the city's  poor or destitute. If such a liberal  construction is to be placed on the section, the city must make suitable provision for the poor and destitute of the  entire district. There is no machinery  whereby the city can prevent indigent  sick being brought in from outside districts and left to die in Ihe city unless  the humane instincts of the authorities  force them into making provision for  their relief.  Greenwood is quite willing and quite  able to provide for any indigent sick  who are bona ride residents of the city,  but Greenwood   is   not willing nor can  she afford to become a dumping* ground  for those who are properly the charge  of the provincial government. To .say  the least, it is anything but creditable  for the government to attempt, to inflict such an incubus upon a young*  town.  T. H. White, administrator for the  estate of the late J. J. White, sold by  public auction at the International  hotel, several mineral claims on Monday morning last.

There  was a hot time in   "the   old  town "on Monday night.    For several  hours the dining* room of the International   hotel contained  one of the j oiliest companies that had  ever  assembled   in   Greenwood.    The   host,   Mr.,  Thomas  McDonnell, is one  of the pioneer  prospectors  of  Boundary  Creek.  He  roughed   it   in  the  early da3-s, he  secured some promising* properties and  waited   patiently   for   the  time   when  Boundary  Creek   would not be an unknown mining district and the investor  would   "find    it   profitable, to   acquire  Boundary   Creek   properties.    He  did  not wait in vain.    As has already been  stated in The Times, the first payment  has   been   made   on   the Snowshoe, a  property in which Mr. McDonnell held  a heavy interest.    Mr.   McDonnell decided to give a dinner to  his  bachelor  friends, many of whom are Boundary  Creek    pioneers   like   himself.    They  gathered   at  the  International   about  twenty strong and enjoyed themselves  thoroughly.    Besides   the   host   those  who   were   present were :    Messrs. H.  B. Munroe, James Kerr, G. B.   Taylor,  Geo.   Miller,   Frederick   McEaine,   J.  Custance, Thos. Gulley, Chas. Rendell,  A. H. Eawder, Randolph Stuart, J. H.  Mitchell, Sydney M.  Johnson, Geo. A.  Guess, A. K.   Stuart, J.   C.   Haas,   D.  Beath, King Rees, D. C.McRae, W. M.  Law, G. Arthur Rendell and  D.   Ross.  The dinner   itself  left nothing to be  desired.    It was well  cooked  and well  served.    After ample  justice had been  done to the good  things  provided, the  evening was spent in song-  and  story. ��  Several  toasts     were   proposed     and  responded to, and some witty and eloquent   speeches were   delivered.    The  exuberance of the American patriotism  was infectious on   account  of the  war  and  the voices of enthusiastic Americans and prejudiced Britishers blended  in singing  patriotic  American songs.  The Americans, too, never sang* " God  Save the Queen" more fervidly, realizing: that in this   critical time in   their  history it   is   gratifying   to have  the  support   of John Bull.    Besides patriotic  toasts, local institutions- were not  forgotten.    The      host,      Greenwood,  Boundary Creek, the  prospectors,  and  last  but  not least,  the Snowshoe was  toasted   and  the   wish expressed   that  the conditions of the bond   be changed  so that payments would be made  more  frequently.  At 12:39 "Auld L/ang Syne" was sung  and the company dispersed after a  most enjoyable evening.  Off  to   the   East  Messrs. G. Arthur and Chas. Rendell left on Wednesday for their.old  home in St. Johns, Newfoundland.  They expect to be away about six  weeks. Mr. G. A. Rendell came out  west some five years ago and has not  been home since while Mr. Chas. Rendell has been in this district for over  eleven j-ears.
