GREENWOOD, B,G, SATURDAY, MAY 21, 1898/  89 No, 11,  :B-*ff__NW_irrj.f-irWT-^M-B;rW  *imii"riiiiiiin iiiii ��� iii  1  A   DUTY   TO   BOUNDARY   CREEK.  OUNDARY CREEK District has been treated more  unjustly  by the  Turner government than an)1-  other  portion of the province of British Columbia.    When the district was in its infancy, when  enterprising prospectors ventured into the hills  and located  claims  that were soon to make the  district famous, members   of  the  Turner gov-  ���ernment ridiculed the idea that Boundary Creek would ever  prove an important mining centre.    This prejudice against  an important portion of the province has  been  maintained  -until the present day.    While  the   government   showed an  anxiety that every farmer on the coast  should  have egress  and   ingress by a   macadamized  road,   the prospectors   of  Boundary Creek district were allowed to cut their own trails  and the mine owners and business men were forced to build  wagon roads.    It is  quite   true   that  while the government  was slow to  build   roads   iiito the  district, it  shows a commendable  enterprise  in   changing  short  trousered   Trout  -Creekers into public officers and clothing them with authority to iron unfortunate  residents  whose  worst crime  was  poverty.    Southern Yale is long on  policemen and short on  public improvements.    It is equally true that   while  money  was extravag-antly spent   in   erecting   a handsome   pile of  stone ; in paying for the jaunts, of ministers  of Crown who  went to England and to the"East on private business at the  expense of the public ; in providing tat offices for the impecunious and the incompetent ; in reducing to common sense  "the laws of a careless and  indifferent Attorney-general; in  conducting the ordinary business of the province, Boundary  Creek was   pouring   wealth   into   the   provincial   treasury  -through the offices at Osoyoos, Midway and Grand Forks.  Turning from purely local matters to questions that  more generally affected the province and we can charg-e the  government with the same culpable negligence as far as  Boundary Creek district is concerned. Take their railway  policy for instance. Every act of the provincial government was calculated to retard the development of this great  district by encouraging chartermongers and subsidy seekers.. ���    "  The   first    railway,, adventurer   who   hj^pnotized   the  Turner government into looking   after  his interests rather  than to the development of Southern British  Columbia was  none other than the  gallant  Col.   Baker.    Basking  in the  ���sunshine of   the Cranbrook  estate,   he perfected   a scheme  whereby the province was to be filched  to the tune of several million acres   of land   and Col. Baker  enriched.    The  scheme was a brilliant one and commended itself so highly  to,the government that the Col. was taken into the cabinet,  allowed to make a trip to England at  the   expense   of   the  province in order that he   might  sell the Cranbrook estate,  with the adjacent public   lands   thrown   in.    The   British  Columbia Southern railway was dangled before the eyes  of  the electors for several years.    Extensions of time,.accompanied b}r increased land grants were  given to the  promoters by the provincial government as an encouragement  to  do nothing.    Col. Baker made another trip   at  the   expense  [   of the province and the British Columbia   Southern   charter  | passed into the hands of the C. P. R.    Railway construction  j  in Southern British   Columbia   was delayed   four   years by  ! railway legislation No I.  r The second adventurer who wooed and won the Turner  L .government was a gentleman built on different lines. He  j had never clothed himself in all the panoply of war. He  \ was young in years but a veteran in the art of making  \ money   in railways  without  building   them.    P.   Auguste  Heinze and his Columbia & Western railway and its accompanying land grant is familiar to most the readers,- of,.,The,  Times.    He   also   secured   additional  land  grants   as. his  reward for doing nothing  and  finally  sold at a good figure  to the C. P. R.  The third to appear on the scene was a syndicate. The  reason for the syndicate instead of the individual was clear.  Not one,of the aggregation had brains enough or money  enough to carry through a project of any kind. The Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Railway Company secured sufficient standing at the expense of the province to enable it to  successfully burke a bona fide effort on the part of the Dominion government to give Boundary Creek district railway  communication. Its charter has passed into the hands of  the C. P. R.  Every act of the provincial government encouraged  delay in opening up this district by railways. Instead of  forcing those securing enormous concessions to build, they  were encouraged by renewals of charters and further aids.  The natural result followed. The people of Boundary Creek  district, disgusted and discouraged, haiied'with delight the  announcement that Mr. Corbin was going to build into thev  country. In order to show their appreciation for a railwa}*-  man who volunteered to build at once without a subsidy or  land grant, they appointed delegates to go to Ottawa to  assist him in securing a charter. But the precedent Mr.  Corbin intended establishing was considered by the provincial government too dangerous because it was too honest.  To build a railway without a cash subsidy or a land grant  would be, a serious menace to the interests of Turner's  friends, the chartermongers and the subsidy hunters. The  button was pressed, and the automatic legislature passed a  resolution whose object was to defeat the honest railway  builder and to further delay railway construction into  Boundary Creek district.  Mr. Corbin's efforts almost succeeded in wiping out the  much beloved railway policy of the Turner government.  Glorying in his defeat they hurled defiance at those in favor  of honest railway legislation by presenting the C.P.R.  with nearly $1,000,000 to do what Mr. Corbin offered to do  for nothing. Not satisfied with this manifestation of  delight they gleefully plunge the province $1,600,000 dollars  in debt in order that they may teach the doubting Thomases  that when it conies to feeding avaricious railway corporations, the Dominion government is not in it with the enterprising g-alaxy of statesmen who control the destiny of  this province.  This mad potlatch, more prodigalthan the wildest conception of the most reckless sachem, must stop. The good  sense of the people that have been too careless about public  affairs must assert itself. The safety and the future of the  province demands that the Turner government must go.  The crowning indignity that has been heaped upon the  people of Boundary Creek has }ret to be mentioned. The  electors here would like to join in the fight for honest government. They would like to show the rest of the province  that local gain is no excuse for supporting dishonest legislation but they find that their political power has been  destroyed and that they have been gerrymandered out of  existence. They could have forg-iveu the Turner government for its greed for money without any adequate return,  for its neglect to carry out necessary public works, for its  ruinous*railway legislation���3res, even for its Trout Creek  policeman���but they can never forgive the Turner government for political disfranchisement. The spirit of independence burns as strong in every elector in Boundary  Creek as in every other Britisher and he deepl3' resents any THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  legislation that stills his  voice  in  the  government of the province.  The interests of Boundary Creek district demand more decisive action on  the part of its people than sullen  resentment. At least 700 strong, if they  unite to fight for the political existence  of the district they may soon congratulate each other upon having secured  for their district that political consideration which its importance demands.  To escape complete political annihilation is more important than party victory. The people of Boundary Creek  should at once take action. The balance of power in the irregular constituency of Rossland is in the possession  of Boundary Creek. It should be used  not only to ensure the defeat of an extravagantly incompetent administration but more especially to ensure for  Boundary Creek district its full measure of political power.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The regular weekly meeting of the  Greenwood City Council was held in  the Court house Monday evening. His  Worship, Mayor Wood, presided and  the following aldermen were present:  Aid. Galloway, Paton, Barrett, Phelan  arid Parry.  The city treasurer was instructed to  renew with Bank of Montreal the promissory, note covering- temporal*}' loan.  ��� ���'The finance committee reported the  following bills correct aud they were  ordered paid : Smith & McRae, sta-  tioner}' $1.75 ; Fritz Hatisseneur, wood  $1.75 ; McDonald Bros., street ; work,  $21; Boundary Greek Times, advertising, $23. ���  The council also decided that Mr. C.  M. Shaw, C. E., be paid$90 for preparing a large plan of the city.  The council discussed Mr. McMynn's  letter which appears elsewhere and instructed the clerk to communicate with  the provincial government, pointing  out the injustice of forcing the city to  pay for the indigent sick coming from  mining  camps outside the city   limits.  The Fire Protection By-Eaw was  reconsidered and finally passed.  Several Copper street property holders being desirous of laying sidewalks,  the   council   decided   that    sidewalks  should be 8  feet   wide   to be made   of"  plank 2x8 laid on three sills 3x4. ���  Silver  Dollar   Bonded.  On Saturday last, the Silver Dollar  was bonded to Mr. A. H. Harrison of  the B. C. mine. The Silver Dollar is  located on the Main Kettle river above  Rock Creek. The bond was $35,000.  Of this amount $500 is to be paid in  cash, $500 in 60 days, $1,000 on September 1st, $16,500 on March 1st, 1899, and  the balance $16,500 on June 1st, 1899.  The owners of the property are Messrs.  Peterson and Newnan.  H. G. WiLson, representing Wilson  Bros., wholesale grocers, Victoria, was  in Greenwood last week securing  orders for his firm.

McDonald, the C. P. R. general traffic and freight agent for the  Kootenay- and Boundary Creek district,  came in from Nelson on Wednesday.  Mr. McDonald is looking after the  freight business from Penticton in the  interests of "the company. Speaking  of railway construction into the district-.he corroborated the reports that  the bids for constructing the road between Robson and Midway were opened on the 15th inst., and wired to Montreal. Mr. McDonald also stated that  he saw a telegram from Vice-President  Sha'ughnessy in which the latter stated  that the railwa}' must be completed to  Midway   before   the   end  of   the j^ear.  That all arrangements must be made  with that end in view.-: Mr. McDonald  while here met Harry Rose, the freighter, and made arrangements with him  for the hauling of supplies for the construction gang which are to be placed  at the Boundary Creek end of the railway. A very large number of men  must necessarily be employed to complete 100 miles of difficult road within  the time contemplated.  Grand   Forks: Election.  Mr. Jeff Davis, a prominent merchant, was elected mayor of Grand  Porks by acclamation onTuesday last.  On the same day several candidates  were nominated for aldermen.

In all probability the Boundary Falls  townsite, owned by- Messrs. McCarren  and Lambly, will change hands in a  few days.' Mr. Lambty, when seen regarding the sale, stated that they had  an offer from the Milburn syndicate,  but that the deal was not completed.  Mr. Hankey, of Nelson, representing  the syndicate, was in Greenwood on  Thursday and discussed the matter  with Messrs. McCarren and Lambly.  The townsite is 320 acres, known as  the McCarren pre-emption. The Boundary Falls water-power is also claimed  by Messrs. Lambly and McCarren under an old record and one secured in  January, '97. The Greenwood Water  Power Co. has also a record for Boundary falls. ' 0  A Prominent Oddfellow.  E- C. Davison, of Kamloops, was  among the visitors to Green wood this  week. Mr. Davison represents the  Kamloops Cigar Factory, Hutchison &  Riley, harness makers, Calgary, and  a Hanover furniture firm. Mr. Davison is Grand Warden of I.O.O.F. and  is officially visiting the lodges in the  towns he visits. He went oyer to  Grand Forks yesterday, and will return to Greenwood to-day. A special  meeting of Boundary Valley Lodge,  I.O.O.F., will be held this evening for  the purpose of meeting Mr. Davison.  All members of the lodge and visiting  .brethren are urgently requested to be  present.       <���:,;   Supplementary Estimates.      >,  The   supplementary   estimates  presented to the legislature last week add  $550,940'/to the ordinary estimates.    Of  .   this amount $440,402 is to be expended  before the end of June  this  year,   and  $44,248 is to make good sums of money  expended by the government  without  authority   from   the  legislature.    The  ..snpplementaries are prepared for election purposes.    East Yale  fares  well :  Vernon  gets  $12,000   for   a   new  jail ;  oFairview will receive $500 for its   hospital; a new school   is   to  be  built   at  ���Okanagan  Falls,   to   cost   $700;   also  schools at Mara   and  Lumby  costing  the same figure.  Greenwood gets nothing. The Greenwood hospital must struggle along*  another year without assistance. The  Grand Forks fire department will receive $300 ; the Greenwood fire department will receive nothing. There is  plenty of money for roads throughout  all portions of the province excepting  Boundary Creek.  Hotel Arrivals.

In the " Semi-Weekly World " of May  13th appears certain correspondence  under date *��� Grand Forks, B.C., May  13th." The correspondence never came  from Grand Forks. It was written in  the World office by J. C. McEatrari.  When Mr. McL^agan deems it necessary  to reply to criticisms of the course pursued by, himself and his paper, he does  not do so in the usual editorial way.  He knows too well that the public do  not attach any importance t) his utterances. He attempts to borrow respectability 03'. writing" anonymous correspondence. Some time ago Mr. Mc-  L/ag-an maligned a prominent Victoria  politician in a simila- way. Too cowardly to attack him openly, he launched forth, his coarse abuse, under .cover  of Viitoria correspondence written in  the World's oilice.  His references to myself acting in  the capacity of one of the Boundary  Creek delegates to Ottawa, would pass  unnoticed were it not for the fact that  he has seen fit to state " that the people of Spokane and other towns across  the l.orcier wer-t ch-wn in their pockets  pretty deeply in. ord.-rto irh'ikenp what  i .bi'ir push fund, 'v to  \V'  ca'led liore  be. handled by the a fons ��� id delegate  and Mr. 'Cor bin's satellites." That  statement is deliberatel3r and wilfully  false. Not one dollar of Spokane  money nor money from any other  American city was handled by myself.  The people of Boundary Creek district  contributed sufficient to pay the legitimate expenses of my trip to Ottawa,  and no more. My time was freel3'  irivcu in the effort to securing for the  district   speedy    railway    communica  tion. During 1113-- absence I paid $239  in salaries to substitutes. Outside the  money' contributed by the people of  -, Boundary Creek district no one donated  a dollar towards my expenses. No one  promised- me "big things should the  scheme go through." I was promised  nothing. I did " expect a considerable  competency ; out of the affair." Eike  every one else interested in Boundary  Creek district, I fully expected to make  considerable nioney in a legitimate  business wa3r: in the event of the Corbin .railway'- being built into the district. Owing to the action of certain  individuals on the Coast who answered  the lash of those at whose trouerh  the3r feed and owing to other influences  the charter was not crranted'.  0 Mr. Mcl^agaii in his Grand Forks  correspondence makes a sneering reference to " my otherwise very depleted  pockets."    I am not rich, it is true, but  1 never found it necessary to do business in the name of another in order to  escape importunate creditors nor did I  attempt to replenish my pockets at the  expense of unfortunately delinquent  taxpayers. I have never swallowed  my convictions in order to secure government patronage nor turned traitor  to those of the same political faith as  myself in order   to be  on   the winning  side.  I .may not be "judicious nor possessed of any too much common sense,"  but I have sufficient capacity to learn  the lessons that experience teaches  and I know that it is neither.p_opular  nor profitable to act the> journalistic  mountebank nor the political scavenger.  ������-  Mr. McL/agan echoes the   falsehoods  of Mclnries aud Maxwell and the rest  of the gang who attempted to damn  the future of Bounda^ Creek by stating that this section (Boundary Creek)  is largely American. There is a comparatively larger percentag-e of British  subjects in Boundary Creek district  than in the city of Vancouver.  The other paragraphs in the correspondence which were added to give it a  genuine appearance are as misleading  as the references to myself. Fig-hting  McL/agan is like fighting- a. chimney  sweep ; whether one wins or loses, one  is going to be blackened but I could not  remain silent after being charged with  receivin_f America 11 money for a serv-  ice performed in the interests of Boundary Creek district at considerable expense and inconvenien *e to myself.

A dispatch to the Spokesman-Review  under 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 length, the  estimated cost is $3,000,000. The bids  were wired to Montreal, to the head  offices of the Canadian Pacific railway.  The contract may not be let before  June 1.  It is not generally known that the  Canadian Pacific railway has not publicly called for bids for this work, but  had 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  could  bid   intelligently.    McKenzie &  Mann, Boomer, Winters & Parsons,  W. R. McFrawe, James Poupaw, P.  Ivarson 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 McCreapass, 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 "10holt 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 considerably.  The estimate of the cost of the work is  $100,000. It is not * postively known  when the reconstruction work will be-  gm. ...   Returned   From   England.  Mr. B. M. 10. Munns of the Recordia  Syndicate returned from 'London on  Wednesday last. He reports that a  great deal of interest is being taken in  British Columbia mining properties in  London 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   GREEK   TIMES,  pi iMmm* f��riii-iM'il ���   ���������! ���-II I  A   $27,000   Payment.  Yesterday in Mr. Hallett's office, Mr.  A; H. Harrison acting-  for  the  syndicate contro.lirig the B.C. mine in Summit .'camp,   paid,  over    to   John     W.  Keoug-h   & Sons,   the sum  of   $27,000.  This is the largest individual pa}rment  ever made in Greenwood  with  respect  to Boundary Creek mining- properties.  The B. C.   was  bonded nine months  ag-o for $60,000.    It was then a prospect  but the indications were  so   encou'rag-  ing that Mr.   Harrison   had  no hesitation in giving- the bond at that figure.  He at once went to work to develop the  property.    A steam 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 paj'ment  on   the  bond   was  made six months ag*o.    Before making  the $27,000 payment  the B. C. was ex-  perted by Dr. Hatch, ah IDnglish  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. Keough &  Sons have made a snug-fortune out of  what wasa mere prospect a year ag-o.  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 &l 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. ��?nodgrass  came over from Okanag-an Falls on  Sunday and spent several days 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 Bound-  ar3r 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  bjr the C. P. R., or under its auspices*  would only accentuate the monopolistic tendenc3' of this company.--British  Columbia Review, L,ondon, Fng.  POLITICAL   NOTES.

The committee appointed to write to  the Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co.,  regarding securing a connection here,  have received a rep^y 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  right of way 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 remarkable that the  company did not ask Greenwood to  buy the wire and string it.  A letter from W. B. Aris to W. T.  Smith throws 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 busy running, its line from Bossburg 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, ������ .to1 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 there by  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 Greenwood 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  Boundai-y Creek M. & M. Co., to an  English Syndicate. The syndicate by  the terms of the deal will have a controlling interest in the company. The  first cash payment has been made and  the properties owned by the company  will be thorougiily developed. The B.  C. M..& M. Co. own 14 claims in. Providence camp. With a larg-e amount of  money in the treasury- for development  and a number of very promising claims  the future of this company' is now very  bright. It is expected that a representative of the syndicate will be in the  district shortly.  To a Business  ��   ��  _.   ��   �����  A Typewriter is a Necessity.

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  1 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 ult., I beg to.say.thatT.'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 are .as 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 1he 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 fide residents of the city,  but Greenwood   is   not willing nor can  she afford to become a dumping- -ground  for those who are properl\r 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.

For several  hours the dining room of the Interna-  tional. hotel contained <one  of the jol-  ���l'iest'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 days, 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 g'ive 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,  G-eo.   Miller,   Frederick   McLaine,   J.  distance, Thos. Gulley, Chas. Rendell,  A. H. Lawder, 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     and0  responded to, and some  witty and eloquent   speeches wrere   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 12:30 "Auld Lang 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 3rears ago and has not  been home since while Mr. Chas. Rendell has been in this district for over-  eleven years. Their many friends  wish that they may thoroughly enjoy  their well earned holiday.  The very tiling you have been Looking for:  ��  To suit all.

Harr3r Rose is again hauling freight  between Penticton and Boundary  creek. Mr. Rose is one of the old time  freig-hters on this route, having done  most of the hauling up to the time  Bassett came on the road.  Before Police Magistrate Hallet, on  Wednesday last, Doc 'Elwell was  charged with using insulting language  on the street and was allowed to go on  suspended sentence, o'the mag-istrate  advising him to leave the city.  Aid. Galloway received a letter from  Government Agent Norris on Wednesday evening stating- that the government would either build a bridge or  ���ferry' for the crossing of the West Fork-  before high water this season.  In the article in last wee^'s issue on  the Anaconda group of claims, the  intention was not to convey the idea  that the Lancaster was one of the  claims bonded by Mr. Garland. The  Lancaster is owiied by E. C, Brown  and J. P. Harlan.  What migiit have been a serious  accident happened to J. McNicol of  Midvva3r on Tuesday last. While driving to Carson, one of the whiffletrees  broke, the horses running* away. Mr.  McNicol and his companion jumped  out of the rig" and escaped injury.  Thos. Elliot, of Fairview, left "for  England last week- -his second trip  across the Atlantic within a twelvemonth. His mission is said to be the  closing- of an important mining deal,  but if a foreign correspondent is not  mistaken there is a more important  deal in view than -jiny pertaining to  mining.  The report ol: W. E. Carlyle, Ma. E-,  M. E.. on the Osoyoos Mining-division,  is to hand, extracts from which will be  published from time to time. While  Mr. Carlyle perhaps g-ives as full a report of the district as the time at his  disposal would permit, it is disappointing-. That the report is weak and  meagre it is impossible to deny, and  it  is to be regretted that the provincial  mineralogist did not have more knowledge and data in regard to the mines  of the Boundary district before making  his report public.  Adam is being made across Bound-  ary Creek for the Lamb Bros. Thejr  intend running an irrigating* ditch to  their ranch adjoining the Midway  townsite. '.,'��������� .  Those owning- dogs would do well-to  remember that after the 31st inst, they  are liable' to prosecution if the tax is  hot paid. Don't say you "didn't know  the collector was loaded, "if you happen to appear before the police mag-istrate.  M. Kane has four men at work on  the Blue Jay, Skylark camp. The  shaft is now down 43 feet in ore.  There are two ledges on the claim, the  work being done on the smaller. The  ore is zinc-blende and galena and is  improving with depth.  Con Cosgroye and J. J. McMullen  have a force of men at work on the  May Queen and Lay Over, Hardy  mountain. These claims are near, or  in Wellington oamp, and the same  quality of ore is found in the ledge of  the May Queen as that in the Winnipeg.  Before James Kerr, J. P., and W. H.  Norris, J. P., Midway, on Tuesday  last the case against Jake RarispOrt,  charged with supplying liquor to an  Indian, was dismissed. The Indian,  Manual, charged with having liquor in  his possession, was fined $25 or 30 dajrs  in jail.  A very heat model of the timbering  of the Jewel, is in the Greenwood office  ,. of the Prospecting Syndicate of B. C.  The model is, the work of Mr. W. J.  Barker, foreman of the mine, and  shows in minature the manner in which  the timber is put in, lagging-, bulkheads, etc.  R. McLeod and his men came down  from the C. O. D., in Long Lake camp,  where he had a contract sinking and  crosscutting on the claim. The shaft  is down 56 feet and a crosscut of 10 feet  from the bottom of the shaft. The  crosscut is all in ore, giving a very  high assay value.  Owing to the bad state of the roads  over the mountain, freight from Marcus is being hauled b3r the river route  through Nelson, Wash., and Midway-.  This road was made last fall b3- W. G.  Glaze for the Midway compare, and  has been a great convenience to freighters this winter and spring.  J. P.- Harlan went up to Deadwood  camp oil Thursday to inspect the work  being- done on the Marguerite, and outline a plan for future development on  the claim. It has been decided to siuk  from the crosscut, following the ore  ibbd3**, a distance of about 50 feet. This  will probably complete the work for  this season. Mr. Harlan is well pleased with the results of the work so far  done, and has no doubts but that the  Marguerite will prove to be a mine.  Dr. Christie of Greenwood, received  notice from Ottawa on Wednesday's  mail that he had been: appointed government veterinary for the territory  south of Penticton in British Columbia.  No better appointment could have been  made. Dr. Christie is a graduate of  the Ro3ral Veterinaiw College of Edinburgh, Scotland, and brings to the  duties of his office an experience of upwards of twent\r years, since graduation.

Negotiations are out for the sale of  the Hamilton and Corkill group of  claims on Eholt creek. Final arrangements will probably be made before  the next issue of The; Times.

Galloway were appointed to collect the necessary funds  to meet the delegate's expenses, and at  the same time notify the people of  Midway, Boundary Falls, Anaconda,  Greenwood and the different mining  camps of the meeting on Saturday  evening.  Messrs. J. Douglas and W. T. Thompson, Midway, and J. J. Gulley, Neil  Lamont and J. H. Macfarlane were  elected members of the association.  High Assay Values.  Even if the mother lode in Klondike  has been discovered, it is question ���-���able,  whether it will assay higher than some  Boundary Creek ores. Last week Guess  Bros, assayed some ore from the Enterprise mine in Long Lake camp, and  the result was as follows : Gold v.dues,  $5,849.27 to the ton ; silver, 1,361.28  ounces to the ton. If the Enterprise  continues as r-t present, it m y be necessary for the owners to guard their  mine carefully for* fear someone steals  ore from the dump.  Public A\eet:ng.  A public meeting will be held in Rendell & Co.'s hall this evening- for the  purpose of appointing a delegate from  the district to g*o to Ottawa to watch  r iilwa3" legislation.

A mining- district which was never  boomed and of which little is known is  that surrounding- the main Kettle river  about 30 miles above Rock creek. The  mineral indications warrant the conclusion that this district will take rank  among- the wider known mineral regions of southern Yale. The development work already done has proven  that there are ores in quantity and  quality.  Mr. J. J. Hibbard, a well-known  prospector, arrived in Greenwood on  Sunday. He has been developing- the  Belcher, a claim owned by Messrs.  Wood and Galloway. The Belcher is  situated near the main Kettle river;  30 miles north of Rock creek. A shaft  has been sunk to the depth of 40 feet ;  the shaft is in two feet of solid ore, encased in another two feet of ore matter.  Mr. Hibbard brought some average  samples with him and assays from  these yielded from $11 to $22 in gold ;  they, also contained copper values. The  vein on the Belcher has been stripped  forca considerable distance.  The Silver Dollar, a property in the  vicinity of the Belcher, has recently  been bonded by Mr. Colleville for an  English syndicate, for $35,000. Five  per cent, was paid in cash. Work will  be resumed on the Silver Dollar in a.  short time. A tunnel has been run in  on the property for IS feet; there is a  well-defined vein, 10>_ feet, and the  average assays give the hig-h value of  $27 in gold.  Mr. Gutting-e is also working a  quartz vein. He is down IS feet and  has 20 inches of ore which yields $30 in  all values, principally gold and copper.  He has several properties in the district.  Messrs. Sullivan and Waddle are  working two or three claims in the district. On one they have a 27-foot tunnel, and when Mr. Hibbard left they  were expecting to strike the ledg-e. A  Mr. Mattison has also a promising-  property in the district and he expects  to start work as soon as he can get in  supplies.  There are also some good ranches in  the locality, Sullivan's ranch being*  among the best. Where his ranch is  located the valley of the main Kettle  river widens out to a distance of over a  mile, and the rich prairie land will  grow almost anything. A mountain  stream which runs through the property affords a cheap means for irrigation.  One of the greatest drawbacks to the  early and greater development of the  district is the lack of a bridge across  the West Fork. In order to reach the  district it is necessary to cross the  West Fork about three-quarters of a  mile from its confluence with the main  river. Some years ago prospectors and  others crossed here by means of a basket, but now it is necessary to ford the  river,���a rather dangerous task, as the  current is swift. Appreciating the importance of the district, the residents  in all parts of southern Yale signed a  petition urging upon the lands and  works department to erect  a bridge at  this point, but so far nothing- has been  done. As considerable development  work will be carried on next summer,  and as many prospectors intend to try  their fortunes in that section, it is  hoped that the government will see its  way clear to erect the bridge. It is  more important even than a road, for  the present trail is fairly good.  Mr. Hibbard is also an experienced  trapper, and during the winter secured  some splendid fisher and mink skins.  Lancashire House Ball.  A ball and supper was given at the  Lancashire House, Midway, on Monday evening last. There was a larg-e  attendance, several sleigh loads having g-one down from Greenwood. Porter's orchestra supplied the music. The  supper was excellent, the menu including many luxuries.  Corporation of the City of Greenwood.  13Y-L./-VW    NO.    4>.  TEMPORARY LOAN  BY-IvAW.

Below are twelve reasons why a  charter should be granted to the Kettle  River Valle3r Railway Company :  (1) Because a competing line will be  of the greatest advantage to the district.  (2) Because the business of the district will be subject to much heavier  charges with only one line.  (3) Because there can now be no competing line other than Corbin's extension.  (4) Because as good a rate will be  made on ores to. smelters in British  Columbia as to smelters on the Columbia river in the United States.  (5) Because the Kettle  River   Valley'  Railway will give the  district   connection by way of at least two   transcontinental lines with Eastern Canada, and  enable the people, to ship goods   direct  in bond from Eastern Canada or  from  the Coast in B.C.  (6) Because the lower rates resulting  from competing lines in every thing-  shipped into and out of the country  will permit the working- of the lower  grade ores, arid thereby increase immensely the business of the country.  (7) Because, were it not for the competing- lines in West Kootenay, the  mine owners who are producing- ore  would be paying at least $5,00 a ton  more for freig-ht and treatment charges  whether the ores were shipped out of  the country or worked in  the  country.  (8) Because not until a district secures rival transportation lines and  cheap fuel can the ores be smelted and  matted in the district and near the  mines.  (9) Because until this time comes,  no restrictions should be placed on selling- ores in"the best markets.  (10) Because the company asks for  no cash subsidy or land grant.  (11) Because a bare charter should  be denied no company.  (i2) Because Corbin will give the  district railway connection at once if  he secures the charter.  New Yukon Regulations.  The Department of the Interior have  promulgated new regulations for the  Yukon district. A creek, gulch, river  or hill claim shall not exceed 250 feet  in length in the general direction of  the stream or ravine on which it fronts  and not more than 1,000 feet in width.  ]_}very alternate ten claims shall be  held by the government of Canada. A  free miner's certificate, good . for one  year, costs $10 ; for a company, $50 ; if  of more than $100,000 capital, $100. A  royalty of 10 per cent, on the gold mined shall be levied and collected on the  output of each claim over and above  the first $2,500 output.  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  The C. P. R. surveyors are now at  work near Boundary Falls.  Mrs. J. F. Hemenway and Mrs. Mc-  Intyre, were among the visitors to the  city this week.  Another masquerade carnival will be  given on the Greenwood Skating Rink  on Monday evening-.  W. G. McKenzie, traveling- representative for Wood, Vallens & Co., paid  Greenwood a business   visit this week.  Mr. A. McQueen, the manager of W.  B. Davey's big- store at Grand Forks,  visited Greenwood this week. Mr.  McQueen expressed his surprise at the  substantial appearance of Greenwood.  He had been under the impression  that here was a straggling villag-e instead of a progressive city.  Messrs. Moran and Tormey who purchased a lot on Copper street a short  time ago to erect a hotel there, will  soon come to Greeny^ood from Spokane  for the purpose of building-. The plans  for a three-story frame building- prepared by Mr. A. B. Campbell have already been accepted by them.  Dr. Pope, superintendent of education, has signified his willingness to  grant-'a temporary certificate to Mr.  Keith who applied for position of  teacher of the Greenwood school. Mr.  Keith holds a first class New Brunswick certificate. His was the only application received when the trustees  made application for a temporary certificate.

Macfarlane, the superintendent of the Sunset mine, returned  from a three months' visit to Montreal  and other eastern centres on Monday.  He reports that the Eastern people  have gone crazy about Klondyke, but  that also considerable attention is  g-iven to British Columbia mines.  Boundary Creek district is not so well  known in the East as Kootenay, and  mining men are anxious to secure information concerning- the district.  While Kootenay is well advertised in  the Eastern centres, there is no literature to be found describing this district. Mr. Macfarlane visited New  York, Chicago and other large cities.  There was a g-eneral feeling when he  left Montreal that Corbin would build  a railway into this district.  Mr. Macfarlane intends  erecting the  necessary buildings on the Sunset immediately and mining will begin shortly afterwards, probabl}^   by March 1st.

Mr. Heinze has sold out his railway  and smelting interests to the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company. Despatches  from Montreal are to the effect tliat  Mr. Heinze had been in that city for  two days, conferring" with Sir William  Van Home, president of the C.P.R.,  and as a result of the meeting the  Heinze.line will pass into the hands of  the Canadian Pacific Railway Co., as  will also the smelter at Trail. The  C.P.R. is to take possession at once.  The purchase of the Heinze road will  give the C.P.R. direct entrance into  Rossland, without constructing a railway to Robson. It will also remove  Heinze's opposition to its coming into  Boundao' Creek district.  It was scarcely expected that there  would come such speedy and striking  evidence of the correctness of the position taken by the residents of Boundary Creek district with regard to  Heinze's railway. At the public meeting held last week, the consensus of  opinion was to the effect that Mr.  Heinze wanted more subsidies in order  to demand a higher price from the  C.P.R., and recent events show that  such was the case. The good people  of Vernon who poured out their sympathy on Heinze and said harsh things  about the C.P.R. will derive but little  satisfaction from the sale.  It is not yet known whether the C.  P.R. Company intend to assume the  ���obligations imposed by the charters  granted to Heinze. Should the company do so, in order to earn the land  grants and subsidy it must begin construction from the Penticton end by  August next.  The sale should spur the people of  Boundary Creek district to more vigorous efforts in Mr. Corbin's interest.  The Corbin railway is practically the  only competitor left. Should he be denied a charter, the C.P.R. Company  are masters of the railway situation  and the3r can build into the Boundary  Creek district when they please. If  Corbin gets his charter, the C.P.R. will  build at once in order to secure its  share of the trade.  A   crusher   has  been   hauled   to   the  Republic, mine in lOureka camp.

The bill introduced by Mr. McPher-  son, in the legislature, in regard to migratory labor, amending the " Master  and Servant Act," has received its second reading. The amendment to the  Act is for the purpose of protecting the  working classes, and most of the professional men in the house voted  against it.    The  lawyers  and   doctors  of the province have had legislation  passed for the purpose of keeping out  competition in their professions ; but  when an act is introduced to protect  the working mien they, of course, oppose it. Following are the provisions  in Mr. McPhersOn's amendment to the  act:  "Any agreement or bargain, verbal  or written, express or implied, which  may be made between any person and  any other person, not a resident of  British Columbia, for the performance  of labor or service, or having reference  to the performance of labor or service  by such other person in the Province  of British Columbia, and made as  aforesaid, previous to the migration or  coming into British Columbia of such  other person whose labor or . service is  contracted for, shall be void and of no  effect as against the person only so migrating or coming.  (a) Nothing" in this section shall be  so construed as to prevent any person  from engaging, under"; agreement or  contract, skilled workmen, not resident ,  in British Columbia, to perform labor  in British Columbia in or upon any  new industry not at present established  in British Columbia, or any industry  at present established, if skilled labor  for the purpose of the industry cannot  be otherwise obtained, nor shall the  provisions of this section apply to pro- '  fessional actors, artists, teachers, lecturers or singers."  The vote on the amendment was : 17  for, 12 against. The division is here  given, so that working men in the district may see on which side of the  house their friends are :  Yeas���Messrs.

Co. are  this week sending out a number of  bills to subscribers, advertisers and  others who are indebted to the company. Some of these accounts are considerably overdue, and payment must  be made at once, or collection enforced  through the courts. Wholesale firms  spend no time "dunning" the printer :  they simply draw at 30 days and the  draft has to be met or a " bad rating "  entered on mercantile registers. Prompt  attention to this notice is therefore  requested.       .   The opinion of the Rossland board  of trade that proper safeguards as regards traffic rates over the Kettle River  Valley railway, in the event of a  charier being granted for the construction of that line, should receive due  recognition from parliament before  that body takes any further action in  the matter. It is undoubtedly necessary for the welfare of Southern  British Columbia that no opportunity  should be overlooked to divert the trade  of the Boundary Creek country into  Canadian channels. The Miner still  maintains theit this can be done by  parliament stipulating that the charter-  shall only be granted on terms which  will compel the railway company to  haul freight from points along- its line  to any spot in Canada at a lower rate  than to any point in United States ter-  ritorv.���Rossland Miner.

Just   as   soon   as   the redistribution  bill is passed by the legislature, a convention  should   be   held   composed of  delegates from each  polling subdivision in   the   electoral district.    If   each  polling division   would   send, say,  one  delegate  for the purpose of organization, and then if the delegates in  convention deemed it expedient, they could  select a candidate.    If they considered  that a larger delegation was necessary  for  the  selection of a candidate, they  could arrange a scheme for the appointment of delegates froni each sub-division in accordance with  the  number of  electors.    A   delegate   for   every   one  hundred voters   would   make a   fairly,  representative gathering for organization purposes, or for the selection of a  candidate.    The   convention   could   be  held at Greenwood, Midway, Camp McKinney, or Fairview,   whichever place  was  considered   the  most   convenient  for    the    majority   of     delegates.    It  'might also  be suggested that a meeting for organization purposes be  held  in each polling sub-division and a committee   appointed   for   campaign  purposes.    Local organization should com-  nience at once,   for  no   matter how we  are placed by .the redistribution bill, a  thorough organization is  necessary, if  the district is to  accomplish anything.  Organize   and keep the "carpet   bag  gers  out.  OFFICIAL   WORSHIP.  There is perhaps no part of the world  where the Anglo   Saxon race predominates   in   which   official   worship   and  toadyism is carried to such a  nauseating extent as in the Interior of British  Columbia.    If a  fair criticism is made  of illegal official acts, some toady attributes the   motive   to   personal   spite.  Let a citizen mention   his  grievances  in the public press, and he is  called   a  "well  whipped  cur,"   by the  Midway-  Advance,   the  special   laudator of  imbecile officialism in this district.    The  worship of  officialism   is   so   common  and so prevalent in this   country  that  the servants of the people have become  a pest.    Those who are paid to  uphold  th-?   law, are    the   -very   persons   who  most often break  it.    x\ justice  of the  peace   holds   a   court, takes   evidence  without the   oath being leg-ally administered   to witnesses,  and  lines  a citizen against Whom there is no evidence.  The citizen appeals, the decision of the  ��� magistrate   is   reversed,   and then the  magistrate   through   the  columns of a  pcper published by himself, states that  " evidence was given before  the   magistrates'court by defendant incriminating     himself."    The    citizen   replies,  proving   the   falsehood  of   this  statement, and the   magistrate-editor  calls  him a " well whipped cur."    This argument   is  just  what migiit be expected  from a person of the mental calibre   of  the editor of the Midway Advance.    In  every   instance   official   misconduct is  glossed over b}r those toadies, living- in  the'.hope'that they will some  day   rise  to the eminence of a.country constable  or justice of the   peace,   and be able to  pose and   inflate themselves and insult  persons who pay their salaries.

One of the  trreat difficulties the fruit growers will  have to contend with this season is the  green aphis.

As the matter now stands, it is  difficult to see how the government or parliament can refuse the charter for  an  American railway crossing-the border,  but asking no subsidy  and   content to  run its chance of  competition  for  the  trade of the coast cities.    Some oppose  the Kettle River Valley railway  charter because they think the  C.P.R. will  soon   acquire  the  V., V. & E.   charter  and build from the coast to   Kootenay,  if nor ival   companies  are allowed  to  run into  the  Boundary   country   from  the east.    The opposition  to the K. R.  V. Co.   will   not  be   very  strong-,   and  those   who   best   know   the   situation  affirm that far from retarding  the extension of the C.P.R. southern division  from the Columbia river to  the  coast,  the chartering- of  the! Corbin  railway  will make the C.P.R. look to its laurels  and  force   it   into   immediate   action.  President Van Home does  not  often  appear before  a  committee of parliament,   but  he  did   so   yesterday   and  -pleaded his   own   case; and  that  notwithstanding-   this  the   railway   committee was decidedly in favor of refusing his request goes far to prove  that  the   overwhelming-    influence   of   Sir  William in national politics,  of  which  so much is heard, is a  good   deal of  a  fiction.   He has usually been fortunate  in having- a good case.    The  president  of the C.P.R., with a strong- case,  is a  power at Ottawa ; with   a  weak  case,  such as he represented to-day,   he   can  do little..more to sway the judgment of  the   members   than   any other railway--  promoter.
