IT IS hardly creditable to the people who  calmly looked  oh while on Sunday last Burns broke the windows and  otherwise did damage to the premises occupied by  the  women living on Copper street, that not   one   in   the   large  crowd of onlookers had enough of ordinary manliness either  to attempt to restrain Burns, or to seek the interference  of  the l'ocal magistrates.,    That the unfortunate inmates of the  house do not belong to a respectable class  is no excuse  for  the cowardly conduct���for  it  can   be  stig-matized   at  little  less���of those present at the   disgraceful   scene  of Sunday  afternoon.    The fact that the owners of   the   property" that  was destroyed were women, and defenceless women, should  have been quite sufficient   to   have   enlisted   in their behalf  the  S3rmpathy   and aid  of  every   man   worthy   the   name  among- the onlookers,    Burns, however, for nearty haif-an-  hour was allowed to continue unmolested at the amusement  of breaking windows  and   doors   and,   in   fact,   everything  breakable upon which   be   could   lay   his   bands   about   the  building.    He then jumped on his horse and  rode   off  with  the   intention   of   crossing   the line, and   but for the merest  fluke, the  result  of  his  own  carelessness, he   would  have  escaped scot-free.    Sunday'soutrage'was an  act   of  retaliation, Burns having been fined some three weeks ago   in   the  police   court    for   raising   a  disturbance   iri   the   house   in  question from information laid bv the inmates.  The incident only serves to emphasize more distinctly the  necessit3r for the immediate special appointment of a  constable to maintain law and order in the, vicinit3r of  Greenwood and Anaconda, or for a permanent arrangement  whereb3" an officer from Midway should be obliged to reside  in one of the two towns on Boundary creek. Under prevailing conditions any man may give his passions free rein  with reasonable expectations of escaping- the just consequences. As on Sunday, disce omnes,���to the question  "Where are the police? " it is fairty safe to reply, "Far,  far away."  The officials in Midway are in no way to blame : it is not  to be expected that they should possess the quality of ubiquity. On the whole the representatives of the provincial  police force in this district are exceptionally efficient and  intelligent. This fact is admittedly duly appreciated b3'  the people of Boundary creek, and if the strength of the  force was properl3r distributed there would probabl3r be no  grounds for complaint. The present arrangements are  absurd. At Osoyoos we have a Gold Commissioner exercising- the additional functions of Stipendiai^ Magistrate,  Collector and Assessor, Mining Recorder, and Constable ;  there is also a resident constable at'Osoyoos.' At Midway,  there is the mining- recorder, who is likewise a constable,  an assistant recorder, and a constable. Beginning- with  Oso3roos, the duties of mining recorder and constable might  well be performed there-by one ordiriarity capable' officer.  The g-old commissioner if his services are worth'.anything  at all, should reside either in the most populous or in the  most centrally located spot in the district; and providing  lie further acts as stipendiary magistrate and as collector  and assessor the force of the contention is/augmented. At  Midway the Work at any-time should not be beyond the  performance of two officials, particularly as there is an  assurance that a record office is to be established shortly at  Grand Forks. Hence with the appointment of a recorder  assisted, if necessary by a constable at Grand Forks ; the  removal of the gold commissioner from Oso3roor to one of  towns on Boundary creek, and a constable from Midway,   a  most satisfactory arrangement could be effected in the best  interests of the district without entailing an expenditure  beyond that already anticipated on the part of the Government, excepting, perhaps, offices for the gold commissioner.  These latter will eventually be required, and need not be  costly. The Times respectfully begs to call the attention  of the Attorney-General's departmant to the foregoing  suggestions.  Apropos of the letter which appears in another column,  to the Toronto World, from the pen of Mr. Megraw, it is  rather interesting to note that from a list of. sixty-six mining companies published in the Rossland Mining Review,  only five are credited with having paid dividends to shareholders. Ordy two of these at present paying properties  are at Rossland���the I^e Roi and War IDagle ; of the others,  the Hall mines are at Nelson, the Slocan Star in the Slocan  and the Cariboo at Camp McKinney. It is well within the  bounds of possibilities that within two years this' district  will be able to show two dividend-paying mines to every  one in Rossland, great camp though it is.  If the principal officials of the Canadian Pacific Railway  Compaii3'- were as courteous and as open,to reason as some  of their subordinates, there would be less cause to complain  of the selfish and grasping policy pursued by the great  transportation company. Mr. Allan Cameron, district  freight agent, of Vancouver, visited Boundary creek last  Saturday and listened with a remarkable show of patience  to the grievances, real and imag-iiiary, laid to the charge of  the C.P.R. by merchants and others in this district.  The result of Mr. Cameron's visit will at least have this  effect : He will return to Vancouver with the evidence of  the pecuniary loss his company has alread3r sustained by���  to put it mildly���a lack of tact or an absence' of businesslike means of keeping in touch with their customers, and  he will, we are satisfied, do his utmost to remedy many  matters that now demand redress. For instance : The inadequate size of the freig-ht sheds at Penticton will be at  once reported to the proper quarters, and if we are to believe Mr. Cameron's assurance, immediate steps will be  taken to protect goods arriving at Penticton from damage  or exposure. Mr. Cameron will further urge a reduction of  the freight rates at present charged on goods carried on the  ss. Aberdeen, particularly so on flour manufactured b3r the  Okanagan Euid Spallumcheen mills. These reforms, if carried out, will certainly have the desired effect of decreasing  freighting- from Marcus.  It is a fallac3r to suppose that supplies can be purchased  cheaper in Spokane than in Canada. No merchant on this  side of the line thinks so. The reason why .Spokane has  heretofore obtained the trade of Kooteruiy and the mining  districts of Yale is attributed solel3r to the fact that goods,  are received via the Spokane & Northern road with greater,  despatch and at less cost than the3r are over the line of the  C.P.R. Take for instance the freight of dry goods : A local  firm contracted with the C.P.R. to deliver goods at a certain  figure direct from the coast to their store in Greenwood.  The C.P.R. failed to carry out their part of the contract because, it is understood, they could get no freighter to haul  the goods from Penticton to Greenwood at the rate of a cent  a pound. The freight charge on dry goods from Okanagan  Landing to Penticton by boat is 75c. per hundredweight, or  3^c. per pound. The freighter charges, while the roads are.  decently passable, l^c. per pound from Penticton to Greenwood. The comparison is interesting-, though further-comment is superfluous.  tetafaawatBHttWiBl^^ THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  A HARD COUNTRY TO PROSPECT.  Dutch Jake returned to Anaconda  this week from prospecting- up the  main Kettle river, travelling- some 45  miles beyond Rock creek. From a  prospector's point of view the country,  according- to Jake,, is  n  no  good."  He  could find no evidence of mineral-bearing-rock of any  kind,   nor  was  there  any float  to   be  seen.    Grass   is  very  scarce and   travelling-  difficult   in   the  ' extreme���a wearisome continuation of  gulches and canyons, with   acres  covered ' thick   with     fallen    timber   and  '' wind-falls,'' are  chiefly  characteristic of the route.    There were, however,  several parties of trappers in the neighborhood meeting-  with  great  success.  For   the   result   of  two  weeks'   work  Harry Morg-an and   his  partner  Stanford had  secured  2  minks, , 8 .."marten"  and 3 fishers���a species of otter. Game  too, is very plentiful.   There is a rough  sort of trail leading- into  the  country,  which was evidently   an  old  trapping  ground known, perhaps, thirty or forty  3rears ag-o to Hudson Bay men, judging  from a dilapidated cabin and other evidences that   the   neighborhood   had in  former times been explored.'   On Boulder creek the  stakes  of  an  erstwhile  placer claim are still standing, but all  the    writing-    thereon  effaced.  was   long-   ago  CORRESPONDENCE.  [We are in no \va}r responsible for  the opinions  of our correspondents.]  JUSTICE'S    JUSTICE.  To the Editor, Boundary Creek Times :  Sir,���I believe I am only giving  voice to the unanimous opinion when  I say that by merely inflicting a fine  on C. Burns for his outrageous behaviour on Sunday last, Mr. Norris, J.P.,  took an altogether too lenient view of  the offence. In fact it appears to me  that his conduct while acting in a  magisterial capacity calls for severe  rebuke, or at any rate should be explained. It seems that instead of  waitng for the return of Mr. McMyhn  who was working up the facts of the  case at Greenwood, Mr. Norris hurried  matters forward very ill-advisedly,  sitting alone on the -bench, although  his colleague (Mr. Kerr) was expecting  to be present. To -maintain peace and  order on this side of the line it is absolutely necessary to impress the "hoodoo " element with a wholesome respect for the administration of justice  under the British flag.���Yours,  J. W. Np;lson.  Greenwood, Nov. 4th, 1896.      ,  Mr. W. T. Thompson, of Midway,  has been confined so the house for several da}rs, suffering from a sprained  ankle.

Mr. Caulfield says that the greatest interest has been awakened in Manitoba  by the reports of the rich discoveries  of mineral in British Columbia.  The road between Greenwood and  Anaconda is being widened and generally put in good condition, by order  of the road inspector. No piece of road  in the district was more in need of repairing.

HARBER ������������  ��� ���   EDITOR  MANAGER  Subscription, $2.00 per Year, in Advance.  SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1896.  MUNICIPAL, INCORPORATION.  The   question; of  incorporating  the  district���-from   Midway   to   (say)   the  Summit���as a municipality has recent-  ly been mooted, and, so far as  we  can  learn, has met with  general  approbation.    Meanwhile, ample time and  opportunity   is  necessarily  afforded    in  which to  discuss the  project  and   to  consider   the   advisability   of   taking  more active measures. -  It  is  now  too  late in the year to0admit of any effective steps being taken  towards  obtaining municipal g-overnment in Boundary  creek for 1897���the L/egislature requiring a six month's notification prior   to  granting application for municipal  incorporation ; but it is none   too soon to  carefully weigh the arguments for and  ag-ainst making such  application next  June.  The advocates of the project advance  with, it must be   confessed, what looks  much like good common-sense,   that a  very small proportion of  the  revenue  derived b3r the government in the form  of taxes upon real   estate  in   this  district, is ever returned in the  sliape  of  improvements ; that   under   municipal  control   all   the   money    thus    raised  would be put back in  circulation  and  spent  to  local   advantage ;    that   the  questions of a  resident  police  magistrate, resident constables,  fire  protection for the town, water  systems,   and  other matters could  speedily and more  certainly be settled if coming directly  under the control of a recognized local  executive body.    All  of  which  propositions are doubtless irrefutable.'   Further, attention is drawn to the probable  fact���the case of Rossland being made  to   appear   analogous���that   if  an   attempt is delayed next year to incorpor-  porate either the towns   separate^, or  with the district, it will mean that under a provision of  the   Municipal  Act  incorporation will be put off until  the  1st of January, 1899, long before which  bjr the progress of events  the  country  may be in a condition where municipal  control is indispensable  to  individual  comfort and to general  prosperity.    It  must also be remembered that  even in  municipalities the  Government  main  tains and keeps in proper repair the  main thoroughfares^ and assists by  yearly grants towards the cost of necessary institutions.  On the other hand there   are lamentable instances enough in the province  of gross mismanagement, culpable extravagance and egregious  folly  to be  laid to the charge of municipal governments. ��, ��� In Vernon  the  greatest  difficulty is experienced  in  collecting  the  taxes; the civic finances are in   a  bad  condition, and every move of the council is circumscribed and rendered practically non-effectual for fear of increasing the already heavy weight of  debt:  On the lower Fraser one or more of the  municipalities are petitioning for  dis-  incorporation.   Even in Victoria itself,  where presumably the ablest business  men in the province  are to  be  found,  municipal government is admittedly a  failure*   . With  such   examples.' before1  us, is it wise or prudent to   think  that  if incorporated !as a municipality Boundary Creek will escape the  difficulties  from which other localities are not free?  The question can only   be  answered  ,-   o ���    '".  by propounding another : Can we find  in the district a body of men to form a  council, sufficiently disinterested, capable and honest, to administer the  affairs of the district, who would regulate expenditure by the revenue, maintaining a taxation that would be no  more burdensome than at present ?

HUNGARIAN  XXX STAR  STRONG BAKERS  GRAHAM  Bran Shorts \  Chop Etc THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES,  WEST FORK;OF KETTLE RIVER.  Jim Dale  came  down  on  Thursday  from the West Fork, having completed  all the work that is to be done this year  on the two claims, the Garmi   and  the  Butcher Boy, owned jointly by himself  and Jim Kerr.    Dale gives the following account of how he found the Carmi,  which  is   probably   one   of   the   best  strikes  made   this   year.     About <��� the  middle of Aug-ust he decided to  go  up  and prospect  in  the  neighborhood  of  Penticton creek.    If nothing was to be  found there he intended to follow south  coming   by   way   of Baldy  mountain  down the divide to Rock creek.    On the  journey, he pitched camp and went into the hills to prospect, but  the  smoke  from bush fires became so dense  that  he lost his bearings,   and was  obliged  to camp out that night with no  better  protection against a  heavy  dew  than  a thin shirt. After nightfall the smoke  lifted a bit and  by   the   light   of   the  moon he took his  reckonings,   finding  that he was a long way west of  camp.  Next morning, he made his  way  back,  but was obliged to keep working north  as  this   direction  presented  the  only  open country.    He at length struck the  river and here came across a quantity  pf rich float.  Tracing this up he found  the ledge on  a  bluff,   some  fifty  feet  aboye the river  bank.    He  made  his  location, and breaking off a few pieces  of rock with a prospecting pick,brought  them down to  be  assayed,   the  result  being a return of $27,���$12 in gold and  20  odd  ounces  in  silver.    Returning,  Dale worked for nine days  and   again  brought down this  time  50  pounds of  rock to be assayed.    The ore went  $52  in g-old and 23 ozs. in silver from carefully averaged samples.  A tunnel has now been run in on the  ledge for 28 feet and the indications  are that the vein will widen with depth.  On the surface it was only two feet  across, whereas in the tunnel it has increased to five feet in width. The Car-  mi and Butcher Boy are both located  on the same lead, hence it is considered  advisable to do assessment for both  claims on the Carmi alone. The claims  are situated about 20 miles aboveRock  creek, near the mouth of Penticton  creek, on the West fork of Kettle river.  FAIRVIEW MINING NOTES.  [Special Correspondence.]  Mr. W. A. Dier, of Victoria, arrived  in camp on Thursday and at once put  several men to work on the Comstock  mineral claim, recently purchased by  him. It is his intention to have two  shifts working for some time, running  tunnels, etc. He has also purchased  the Silver Bow claim from M. McMillan and intends doing work on it this  winter to a considerable extent.  Experts seem to be the order of the  day here and they all express themselves as highly pleased with the looks  of the properties ; but as yet we fail  to see any good result from their visit,  whatever may be in store for us in the  future.  Mr. C. Cosens is at present in charge  of the Blue House and other property  of the Strathyre Mining Company, and  to all appearances matters will remain  in statu quo with that company until  next spring.  A third interest in   the   Silver  claim,   Smith's   camp,   was sold  Star  this  week by C. Harrington to E}. Keightley  DISTRICT NEWS.

Both  petitions should be signed by every  resident on Boundary creek.  CAM?   MCKINNEY   NOTES.  An offer has been made by Eastern  people for the Minnehaha claim, which  adjoins the Cariboo at Camp McKinney. The price is away up in the  thousands and there is every prospect  that the deal will go through.  Cariboo, Camp  McKinney,   stock  is  in great demand in Toronto, according  to the Globe, which  comments   as  follows :���" The stock has not been much  before the public, and is  selling at  43  cents, when it should be $1, as there is  two years of ore in sight, and the dividends are at the  rate  of  18  cents  per  annum.    The Cariboo M. M. Co.   stock  has not been sold in this  city  until   a  few days ago, when Messrs. Campbell,  Currie   &   Co.   secured   the   only block  that has been offered  in  Spokane  for  some time and sold 5,000 shares to their  clients on  Saturday  out  of  the  7,000  shares secured.   This mine has produced nearly a quarter of a'million dollars'  worth of bullion and  has  paid  $95,000  in dividends. The stock, which brokers  here  claim   has   been   systematically  " beared "in the past by parties interested in securing all of it,   was  quoted  at about half what they hold to  be  its  value."  ra    W.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  , u  ���K:  I  MINING NOTES.  Prospectors owning-claims in Kim-  berfy camp have decided to cut a road  from there leading- into Greenwood.  There is now from four to six inches  of snow in the hig-her altitudes, and  prospectors are rapidly leaving- the  hills. The '"majority, will winter in  Spokane.  ,C. Iv. Thomet left on Wednesday for  Portland. He expects, to�� return in  about ten days time, accompanied by  an expert who will report on some properties in the camp.  Work is being- done on the Sunny-  Sides, in Providence camp. On this  claim there is apparently an immen.se  body of ore. Recently some very fine  specimens of native silver were obtained before the first assessment was  completed.  J. C. Haas will do assessment work  on two claims owned by him on Teroda  creek this week. Assays from one of  these claims, called, the Reservation,  went $8.46 to the ton from the grassroots. The ore is a white quartz of a  barren appearance, hence the value  was rather extraordinary.  According- to the last report of the  Bureau of Mines of Ontario, hessite  has been found at Gold Creek, Purl  Portag-e Bay, containing silver 61.01  per cent., tellurium 35.40, with no g-old.,  This is thus the third place in Canada  for this rare mineral, it having- been  found in. Long-' Lake camp and "on  Krug-er '���mountain.'  M. T. Robinson came down from  Kimberley camp this week, having-  completed the assessment on the Ham-  * ilton and done some $150 worth of work  on the Ballarat. This latter is represented by an open cut, IS feet wide and  12 feet deep., A fine bodj' of pyrrho-  tite ore, throug-h which copper pyrites  is freely disseminated, is shown up.  Another claim of Robinson's is the  Rossland, a quartz and g-alena proposition ; assays from surface rock g-ave  $4.45 in g-old.  Georg-e Cook has just  completed  an  assessment on the Gem in  Welling-ton  camp, by stripping- the ledg-e and sinking- on either side,  respectively   for  10  and 12 feet.    The ore is copper pyrites,  and the lead is supposed to  be  75  feet  .across.    There is certainly an immense  showing-.    Georg-e Cook   is  now   about  to work on the Ruby, in which he owns  a half interest.    The claim lies about a  quarter  of  a  mile  west  of Boundary  Falls,    I^ast winter a shaft  was   sunk  thirty-five feet,   and   at  that  depth   a  fine   body  of   hig-h-grade  copper-g-old  ore   was   struck   in   solid   formation.  Work will now be concentrated   at  another spot where the outcropping-s g-ive  evidenceof the proximity of the  same  ledg-e.    The Ruby is decideclhr a promising- prospect.

Mr. A. Meg-raw, of Wiarton, Ont., at  one time editor of the Vernon News,  writes to the Toronto World of the 18th  ult., very justly , complaining , that  whereas the leading newspapers of  Toronto have sent special correspondents to the mining districts of British  Columbia, he has yet failed to notice  any '.mention of Boundary Creek. He  ��� says : .''���.'.-  What! find fault with is that Trail,  Rossland, Nelson, and the  Slocan   are  '���made-to represent the whole of British  Columbia, and'equally .'as rich districts  are almost, wholly  neglected.    To-day  I read in the World that the" War EJag-le ���  was to pay a dividend of $30,000 on the  15th;    How long- have we been hearing",  about this dividend which, like Christinas, is always coming-; and yet I  fail  ...   to see mentioned in a  single  Toronto  paper that the Cariboo quartz  mine, in  . ;Camp McKinney, 70.miles further west  than Trail,'   which,   witli   a ,ten-stamp'  mill, has been grinding- out its monthly  dividends for shareholders  for the last  two'.years,- had for   September  paid   a  dividend of :$16,000,��� or  2o.   per  share.  This one mine has turned out  $220,000  in bullion^ and jet here in the east the  camp in which it is  situated  is  never  heard of.    The World is the only paper  in the east in   which  I have   seen,the"  name of this   camp mentioned   at   all,  arid that only a short item stating that  .during; the last 14'days of July the ten-  stamp mill on the Cariboo in Camp McKinney had cleaned up , 384  ounces  of  g-old, or in rbund numbers $8,000.  Also take the dozen or more mining  brokers now doing- business in Toronto  and with the exception of Campbell,  Currie & Co. and Sawyer, Murphy '&  Co., there are scarcely any who. know  anything- about Camp McKinney or  about the now numerous rich camps on  Boundary Mountain, which lies east of  '���;'��� McKinney"-'-about 30 ' mile's and nearer  to Rossland. Eminent experts who  have examined that section say that  the mines on Boundary mountain will  leave the Trail Creek mines in the  shade once the railway reaches there,  and that will most like'y- take olace  next summer.' '     '   ' '  McKinney is an older camp than  Trail Creek, and if I were to tell you  even a little about the difficulties of  transportation against which the mines  there and on.'Boundarj',Greek have had  to contend, you would wonder that a  dividend could have been paid at all,  much less have been turned out monthly without any flourish of trumpets,  while dividends from the leading mines  of Rossland are heralded half a year  ahead and speculated upon for months  before they are distributed to shareholders.  SHOULD   BE    GRADED.  As a course for an " obstacle race "  Government street in Greenwood City  would admirably answer all requirements,���there are certainly boulders  innumerable, not to mention stumps,  ups-and-downs, water holes and brush  heaps, to tax the ingenuity of the participants in such a competition to  dodge. Notwithstanding,���unless, of  course, the business men intend to  utilize the boulders or stumps by placarding- them with advertisements���  '" For that tired feeling-, try our beefsteak !" would look well on the stump  near the butcher's shop, or " Iyook  be  fore you leap !" would be an appropriate motto emblazoned on a conspicuous  boulder before a familiar g-eiieral store  ���it would not be an inadvisable step  if the people living- on the street would  co-operate to improve its appearance,  if for nothing else than the satisfaction  of the thing-.
