James Martin;   M'''P..P.,  spent  last  week in Greenwood and vicinity.     Mr.  Martin   is   visiting   his   constituents,  studying   their   requirements   with   a  view to placing  the same before  the  government.     He  is anxious that certain sums out of the'rather small  vote  for ther district should.be set aside for  roads in the Boundary  Creek district.  Mr. Martin;spent two "days in Midway.  ���   While here he  was  interviewed   by  ;members of the Boundary  Creek Law-  Association.      They  urged  upon  him  the  importance, of   having   a   county  ;court registrar appointed at Greenwood  ; so  that  sessions  of  the  county  court  could .be. held .here regularly..    They  'pointed out that Greenwood was  the  .most important place in the Boundary  1 Creek country, that ten barristers were  located and practicing here, that much  ��� expense and inconvenience  would  be  .' removed by  the holding of sessions of  the county court here.     They, also referred to  the inconvenience of having  a mining recorder no nearer than Midway,  and registry office at Kamloops,  and urged that similar offices be opened  here.    Mr.. Martin  admitted that  the  barristers   had   made   out   a   strong  case and promised to draw the  attention bt the government to the matters  referred to at an early date.  Mr. Martin met a great many of the  electors and listened to their, requests  and complaints. He left oh Wednesday, for Summit camp where he and his-  brothers are interested in mining.  properties.  Gilbert Mahon of the Jewel mine  was in the city this week.  J. W. Boyd and Geo. W. Lemon two  Denver, Col., mining men are in the  city.  Donald Graham ex-M.* P. P. came  over from Rossland via Brooklyn on  Tuesday. He will spend several days  in the city where he has heavy property interests.  MINING   NOTES-  The big plant for the Winnipeg mine  is being placed in position.  The Velvet, a claim adjoining the  Boundary Creek Mining and Milling  company's properties, is showing up  well under the development. There  are two men at work sinking on the  property. The vein is about two feet  wide, and runs high in gold and copper. The Velvet is owned by Messrs.  Wilson and Erlich of P. Burns & Co.  The Burleigh Drill Contracting and  Development company has been reorganized in Spokane. The officers now  are :���president and manager, G. Mart.  Corns, Greenwood ; vice-president, C.  Scott Galloway ; secretary, F. L. Farn-  ham, Spokane; treasurer, Eugene Den-  zee, Spokane. These and G. M. Fors-  ter, E. J. Dyer, E. C. Brown, and J. W.  Hill constitute the board of directors.  David Beath left yesterday with five  men to do development work on the  Paymaster, a Beaver creek property.  The Paymaster was recently bonded  to a Toronto syndicate for a large  figure. It is owned by D. Beath,'R.  Wood and Capt. Shields. There is a  well defined four foot ledge on the property. Surface assays run 314.20 in  gold and silver. It is the intention to  sink a shaft on the ore,  rr*-<. 1  THE   BOUNDARY   CREE      TIMES.  *  I. It.   IIALLIiTT.  II. C. SHAW-  HALLETT <& SHAW  NOTARIES   PUBLIC.

Until the  redistribution bill of 189S, it was a  portion of the district of East Yale and  as far as appropriations were concerned, it had to be satisfied with the  crumbs that fell front the (government  agent's table at Vernon. Cur political  reasons, Boundary creek wassep'-rated  from East Yale:and added to the Rossland constituency. The legislature  voted certain sums of money to be expended in the building- and repairing  of roads in the different constituencies.  The government agent at Vernon repudiated any connection between East  Yale and Boundary creek in the matter  of appropriations-and told the people  here to look to Rossland. They looked  and saw nothing encouraging-. The  Rossland agent was quite sure that the  carving tip of the district by an infamous gerrymander was not intended  to effect the expenditure of public  nioney and that Boundary creek must  still exist on Vernon crumbs. It was  finally decided that the separation was  complete and that if Boundary creek ,  assumed the responsibility of assisting  in the election of a representative for-  the Rossland constituency,   it  was en  titled to a share of the appropriations.  While it is well to know where we are  at, we greatly fear that crumbs will  still be our portion.  The government has fallen into the  error of its predecessor and is milking  the interior mining districts to provide  one million dollars for a Pacific cable'  and other schemes equally tinsnited to  the present conditions iii the province.  The government should .{rive every  encouragement to the development of  the illimitable natural resources of the  province rather than throw money  away on undertakings that may be.  rich in sentiment but poor when assayed for practical values. It is a sad  commentary on the methods of the  government when the people of Greenwood must provide a fund for building  public roads throughout a district  which has for years poured nioney into tlie provincial exchequer.  UNWISE APPOINTMENTS.  Had the government placed the  names of the electors in a hat and  extracted thereform the number necessary to make up the list . of newly  elected justices of the peace, the appointments would have given greater  satisfaction. A more unsuitable job  lot of appointments could not be  imag-ined. Under the new order of  thing's Princeton containing- two or  three houses and about double- that  number of residents has six justices of  the peace, while Greenwood has none,  and Midway none. The nearest justice  of the peace to the city is. Chas. Hay  of Columbia. Jas. Kerr, than whom  there was not a more conscientious nor  more intelligent justice in the country  is not included in the re-appointments..  The only possible reason for this is  that Mr. Kerr did yeoman service in  securing the election of a supporter of  the present g-overnment.  The truth is that thepresent government is composed of about as poor a  lot of politicians as can be found anywhere. ��� All the details that go to keep  a party strong are neglected and  everything is centralized . in the Hon.  Joseph Martin. ' Members who know  the wants and requirements of their  respective districts are not consulted  and every act of the government  creates dissatisfaction. ��� The duties of  the members are limited, to acting as  voting machines in the house and  apologists for political blunders in  their constituencies.  If the government is to escape disaster it must be disciplined by its  supporters. Its members must be  taught to recognize that' they are the  leaders of a party only when they  carry out the wishes of the party.  Under present conditions the rank and  file have nothing, to do but attempt to  justify actions that they know are  politically foolish and ill timed.  ROAD TO WEST FORK.  Money to be Subscribed by the Citizens of  Greenwood.  The business men of Greenwood  have subscribed liberally towards the  construction of a wagon . road from  Greenwood to the West Pork of  Kettle. River. The route to be taken  is from up Boundary creek to the  WestjFork'... The road will be less than  half the length of that by the way of  Rock Creek. There is. already a  wagon road up Boundary creek for  eleven miles- and another ten miles  will bring the road to the West Fork.  The country to be opened out is comparatively level so that, the road will  be an inexpensive one. The importance of bringing the West Fork  country ��� in closer . touch with Greenwood cannot be overestimated.

The sneak theiyes did not leave the  city after the ;first night's haul. On  Friday evening Et. .M. Keefer lost a  pair of trousers and about $30 in casli.  The thief was even bolder,than on the  previous evening.. He secured a ladder, entered anupstairs w.J ndow, walked through a bedroom where 'a' lady  was sleeping, went'downstairs and in-;  to Mr! Keefer's room; .He 'secured the;  trousers and went out by the front  door. Although' several Tpeople were  sleeping in the house, no one heard the  burglar.   ' '   ' ���-.���������'���'  To show that the, thieves, are -extremely bold and. ,that nioney is the  only article they care for, it is necessary to'state that Mr. Abbot received  through the Greenwood post office a  package containing the railway tickets  and papers that were in his pockets  when he was.'rqbBed,las;t week: . ,'The  package was jn the letter box ..inside of  postoffice so that it must have been  mailed-' before ten o'clock at night  when the outside door .is closed.  Chief McLaren and his men are  keeping a sharp lookout' for. any  suspicious characters with the result  that the chain gang is becoming  larger.'daily. .East week the chief',  searched three men that looked as if  they might have-taken a, hand in the  robberies but nothing of any incriminating nature was found.  The gang who vyeie operating in the  city  have' probably�� moved  to  Grand  Forks.' -Their  depredations were of a ���  more,.serious ...nature, -in  as much, as  they 'succeeded .."-.in '.   robbing     Her  Majesty's.mail.'" Two sacks1 of letters,  one for Greenwood and one for  Grand  Forks were taken.    The robbingof the  mails was not a difficult matter as the  sacks were left in the store, in, front of  the postoffice.  ��� When the mail stage '  arrives  frpm  Bossburg late  at night  the sacks ar^  thrown^ in by, the'front "  door and are" hot sorted' until morning.  The robbers pried open  the door and  took the two letter sacks.     Up to the  time of writing the police were unable  to secure}, any;-clue to tlie robbers or the '  sacks. j  The theft is  a  most serious one as  the Greenwood sack contained many  valuable documents, the loss of .which  will  pccas^ion'. inconvenience  to-'busi- .  ness men."

Midway, B. C, May 20th, 1899.  To The Editor,  Boundary Creek Times,   .. ..���,-'..���'  Greenwood, B...C.   '  Dear Sir :  ���I have recently learned since my partial recovery from illness of  long duration that during the recent visit of Mr. Leonard Norris, assistant  commissioner of Land and Works, several land cases in regard to the .town  of Beaverton or the pre-emption of W. T. Thompson were tried.  I never heard of them ! ! They were never tried ! ! simple for the  reason that they never existed, Then why? Because the title to Beaverton is perfect.  ��� Who owns Beaverton ? The trading men in Greenwood mostly !  Bankers, the townsite owners of Greenwood, your leading brokers, assayers,  merchants, mining men,  and citizens.  Why do they own property in Beaverton ?    Because they know a good  thing when they see it.    That is what  is building Greenwood cit}* up so  fast, and besides they have been on the.ground and have seen it themselves.  Beaverton  is  the   cerminu.= of the West Fork branch of the Canadian  Pacific Railway, there are no other branches in that part of the country.  - Why is -Beaverton going to..b.e prosperous and a large and thriving  centre ? ' Because it .is ..the'key to the entire mining 'district,' arid .running";  right up to, in fact right into the town, are some of the largest and richest  surface showings of "mineral on'the continent.

It was learned in the city yesterday  on reliable authority that the miners  engaged at tlie Silver King mine had  made up their mines to accept S3.00  per day for eight-hours work. The  Miner's informant was one of the men  ��� engaged- at the mine and a member of  the local Miner's Union. Word-was received from Sandon also to the effect  that the men have decided to take S3.00  per day under the new conditions.  It appears that the action of the  owners in making public their ���intentions and clearly presenting their side  of the case has led the men to view  the matter from a broad standpoint.  None of the men want a strike and  the consequent irreparable injury to a  country that is just opening up. They  therefore see that they can serve their  own interests, and also the interests of  tlie country, by accepting the offer of  the owners and work for S3 a day. This  of course means that there will be no  trouble and that things will   go  along  Miner Crook  Gives His Experience, in the War  Eagie Shaft.  Yesterday a representative of The  '., Miner had a pleasant chat with Mil--  , ward Crook, . the sole survivor of the  recent fatal accident in the War Eagle  shaft. Mr. Cro'oke is a man 2G years,  o'm". nil mY! co'.-.utry man, who hasbeen  in Canada for the last four or live  ye:;rs. Previous to coming here some  -seven weeks ago, he'had been engaged  with the Rathbiini Mill company, at  Deseroiito, Ontario, and; during the  time"he was engaged with the concern,  familiarized himself "with, the mill  machinery generally. He explained  that many accidents happened to the  employees of  the   mill   principally   by  0 their getting entangled in the belting,  so that lie was no stranger to accidents  generally. -,,  Mr. Crook e had been working on the  War   E.tgle   for   about   seven   weeks  previous'  to   the   time of the disaster.  He was  at   work 'tramming  from the  shaft,to the cars at the 250-foot  level.  Occasionally he was   instructed   to  go  ';,.   to the shaft head   and   assist-in   some  work there.    On last Saturday at 12:30  a.m.,   he   got   in   the cage.at the 250'.'  level   and' ,was   being   carried   to the  head of the shaft when the trouble occurred.     In  the  cage  with   him,, were  ���-.<    Scholiield and Palmer,and about a ton  of   steel  going  to the surface to   be  sharpened.       Hon yford    and    Neville  were   outside   of   the   cage  some feet  ��� above him.    The cage started  for  the  surface .ill right, but stopped before  it  got to the collar of the  shaft   and   began to run back,  slowly  at first,  but  gaining speed  with   every   foot,  until  a frightful volocity was   attained.    "I  thought   at   first,"   said   Mr.   Cro'oke,  "that we  were  going  back to the 250  level   regularly,   but. as the  speed   increased I realized that  something had  gone wrong, and that a dreadful crash  was coming.     I  sat down on the steel  and shut my eyes and tried to hold myself together as best I could.     None ot  us spoke; at   least   I   don't remember  saying anything, and  I  did   not  hear  poor   Scholiield   or   Palmer  say  anything.-   They were together on the opposite side to   me.      I  cannot  describe  fully the sense of titter helplessness  I  felt   as we  rushed  down.     I  kept my  t-yes shut all the time, and   only  open-  til them after  the crash came.    It was  r:M over so quickly that I  had not time  ��� lo think.    I can hardly yet realize just  what happened, but I did not lose  consciousness at anytime in the mine, but  was   dazed  and  light-headed   and had  only half mj- wits about me.    I  suffer- :  ed a good deal of pain in my back, and  noticed that I coughed..up  some  blood  and that frightened   me a  little..    Mjr  left ancle  was  sprained   and  my  left  knee was  hurt.    I  saw  the  men   who  came   down   to  our  assistance:   and I  knew my  companions   must be  badly  hurt, as I saw them lying   in the cage.  When T  was   taken   to   the  hospital I  forgot about everything  for  a  while,  and only  knew "that. I was suffering a  good deal'with-my   back.-,    It  has  got.  almost all right now, though,   and  my  other  bruises  do  not amount  to anything serious.     I  cannot  account for  my escape from death.    I can only say  that Providence interfered in my case.  1 am very thankful to be alive after  my terrible experience, and am truly  sorry for the horrible fate of my companions." Mr. Crooke expressed his  gratitude to the good sisters for all the I  kindness shown him in the hospital. I  He smiled rather grimly for a moment  when asked as to his future movements  and then he said "Well, I think when  I'm well enough to get out I will take a  little holiday to pull myself together,  and then I will be ready to go mining  again. I think what happened was  just an accident. I don't believe Hull  was {(> blame a bit. I hope he knows  what I think. ' He will be worringover  the affair I'm sure'.'"���Rossland Miner.  2OTmmflw  Head Office and Works at  Bki.lkvilli;/ Ont.

There has been a feeling of  confidence in the city for the past few  days and the public will be prepared  for the above statement which is just  what was expected. It means, if the  slatement is borne out by future events  that the gravest crisis in the history of.  the Kootenays will be safely passed.  One of the men here who is doing  all he can to urge the miners 'to fight  the owners, and strike if they cannot  secure $3.50 for eight hours work is a  "has been" out of employment. While  following his profession he became  well qualified as a talker and is using  all the eloquence that formerly bored  customers to- bring on a contest between capital and labor. The better  class of miners repudiate the man in  question and they feel that they would  be better rid, of him.  That the local Miners.Union, is disposed to act reasonably regarding the  enforcement of the-law was evidenced  yesterday when a representative of the  Union interviewed several mine owners in the city and'told them the Union  was prepared to go into the question  with each mine individually. The  owners were invited to make an appointment for a conference at which  the whole matter would be, threshed  out quietly before either side made a  move to antagonize the other. This is  another reason for believing that the  threatened enmity will come to  nothing.���Nelson Miner.  Rossland.  investment and Tru  Greenwood.  LIMITED   LIABILITY,  st  C  o.

Fred Hume, Minister of  ���mines, has returned to Victoria from a  , trip to Kootenay. He was interviewed  ' _Jo$ a Times reporter regarding the  eight hour law, and the following report of the.interview is taken from the  columns of that paper:���  Naturally, the attention of the minister was directed to the effect the 'inauguration of the eight hour law-will  have upon the miners and mine owners  in the Kootenay. Several deputations  waited upon him in reference to the  matter, among which was the Nelson  Board of Trade, a body which, on account of the fact that it is composed  very largely of mine owners, expressed  itself as being strongly opposed to the  legislation which comes into effect on  the 12th of June.  Questioned as to the general feeling  in regard to the new lawi Mr, Hume  replied: "The eight hour law, so far  . as miners themselves are concerned, is  perfectly satisfactory. I talked with a  , large number of these men during my  visit and every one of them expressed  themselves as being delighted with the  step taken by --the Government. The  mine owners, on the other hand, are  almost unanimously opposed to ' the  step taken; and are pronounced in  their opposition to it. .. I think, however, that an arrangement will be arrived at which will be satisfactory to  all concerned." i!  "Of course," he continued, "unless  some modification of the wage rate can  be made, a hardship will undoubtedly  Toe worked on the mine owners. At  present most of them are paying their  men S3.SO a day���the day at the present  time consisting of; ten hours. If  they are compelled to pay the same  rate as formerly, under the eight hour  arrangement, the grounds for their  opposition < will be easily understood.  I do not think, though, that they will  be required to do so. I understand that  several of them have expressed; their  willingness to pay their men S3 a day  under the new arrangement.  "This would be better than 35cts. an  hour, the amount which some of the  miners told me they would be willing  to accept. Other difficulties which may  arise in connection with enforcing the  law can be satisfactorily adjusted at  the next meeting of the Legislature,  by the introduction of. a number of  amendments to the act where it is  found to bear heavily on any one."  " Have any of the mines shut' down  in consequence of the announcement  that the law will be enforced ? "  "I think not, and I doubt whether  ��� any of them will be. The threat to  close the mines a harmless sort of bluff  which will not deceive those who are  familiar with the conditions of a mining district. Many of these mines  close down during the summer, anyway, as the ore is rawhided out during  the winter. It is quite probable that  the closing of such mines will be ascribed to the effect of the eight hour  law."  Lost.���A souvenir Steamer Beave  cufflink.

The annual statement of the Bank  of Montreal shows, like other financial  barometers, a highly prosperous condition of the country. -The net earnings  in the year ending April 30, 1899, were  5350,582, an increase of 5585,282 over  last year. The bank earned about  11.25 per cent on its capital of 512,000,000  against 10 per cent for the financial  year ending April 30, 1898. Deducting  the usual half-yearly dividends of five  per cent a total of 51,200,000, there is,  left 5150,582 to be carried to profit and ,  loss, making the balance of profit and  loss amount to date, 51,102,792, as compared with 5952,219.07 on April 30, 1898.  The principal assets of the bank  consist of .54,975,192 in gold and silver  coin and government demand notes,  against 55,388,633 last year; 55,884,255  in 1897, and $6,259,343 in 1896. Current  loans and discounts have increased  from 539,318,507 last year, it536,725,72S  in 1897 and 534,769,687 in 1896, to S42,-  836,211 showing a progressively increased demand for funds for business  purposes, and out of which the bank  has -been enabled to earn increased  profits. The amount due by agencies  of the bank, and other banks in foreign  countries is 511,468,371, compared with  59,405,666 last year, and S7,7.':0,882 for  1897, and due by agencies of this bank  and other banks in foreign countries is  511,468,371, compared with 59,405,666  last year, and 57,750,882 for 1S97, and  57,837,952 by agencies of this bank and  other banks in Great Britain, against  55,294,174 last year and S4,283,263 in  1897. Both these accounts therefore  show a gratifying expansion. Less is  invested in United States bonds, the  amount thus invested this year'being  only 51,705,028, compared with $3,484,-  646   last   year,   and  53.325,010 in 1897.  Overdue debts not especially secured,  loss provided for, amount to 544,205,  compared with 562,306 last Year, and  S125.745 in 1897.  ' On the liability side of the statement,  the notes of the bank in circulation decreased from 55,563,990 last year to 55,-  446,507; deposits not bearing, interest,  decreased from 511,878,262 last year, to  510,927,006; while deposits bearing interest increased from 528,739,391 last  year, to 535,486,834, an increase of  56,647,443. The unclaimed dividends  amount to $2102, against $2032 last  year. The market price of this stock  on April 30, 1899, was 251 per cent  equal to 5502, as compared with 225 per  cent equal to 5470, on April 30, last  year.  A brief sketch of the  above  institution cannot fail to be of interest.    The  Bank of Montreal   is   the  oldest   and  largest bank in Canada. It was organized in  June.   1817, with  a capital of  51,250,000,  and commenced business in  the following August.    Up to 1822,  it  was practically a private bank,  as  it  had no charter until early in that year;,  since that date it has  gone on  adding  to its business, its resources  and prestige! until now it is recognized as one  of the four largest banks in the world.  It has a capital stock of 512,000,000,and  a rest of 56,000,000, and in  Canada ha-s  branches   in   Quebec,    Ontario,   I-fc.v  Brunswick,     Nova     Scotia,   /British  Columbia,'.Manitoba   and   the' Northwest Territories.    Outside, of Canada  it has offices in London, 23ng.;Ch'icago,  ,  with connections in other cities of  the  United States, and it has a  branch   at.  St. John's Nfkl. , The par  value pet-  share  of  Bank  of Montreal   stock  is  5200, and the market price on  April 30  last was 251 per  cent.,   equal   to  5502.  The dividend paid for some years past  has been 10 perjcent.,with an occasional   bonus.       The    president   is   Lord  Strathcona and Mount Royal,   and the  general manager is Mr. Clouston.
