A Weekly Paper published in tlie interests ot the Boundary Creek Mining District.  r\  ft  Vol IV,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY, MAY 7,  1898;  No. "9;  VI   HYPOCRITICAL   NEWRPAPER.  *T"HE Vancouver World is run b\>- one J. C. McEag-an.  J. C. McEag-an runs for J. C. McEagan ; consequently the World is always found 'fighting-  against the people's interests and in favor of  corporations like the C. P. R. Other newspapers pursue a similar course but they are frank  about the matter and stand or fall by the opinions they express. J. C. McEagan is built differently however.    He clothes himself with a   mantle  of  righteousness  *ri> '  and disg-usts   the  readers of his papers by a surfeit of self-  praise and highsounding- platitudes.  The World did its utmost to defeat the Corbin,. charter.  It went out of its way to cloud the issue as far as British  Columbia was concerned. McEag-an was instrumental in  getting- circulated at the coast a petition protesting- ag-ainst  the charter.  We must confess that other newspapers   did   their best to  damn the prospects of Boundary Creek district by pursuing*  a similar course.    The}' acted foolishly ; they will  soon see  that the policy they advocated was not in  the  public interest.    These papers have the courage to stand by   the  opinions they, expressed and   are   willing to shoulder the hostile  criticism which their course engendered.    But the World is  ;i coward and a rn*pocrite.    For  the  past  few weeks it has  been shedding- hypocritical tears because of the havoc it has  wroug'ht in Boundary Creek district and whimperingly tells  of how it was forced to oppose the Corbin charter in the public interest.    Not satisfied with thus insulting the outraged  people, the irrepressible J. C. McEag-an. has   the   presumption to write   letters   to   prominent   persons   in   Boundary  Creek   district endeavoring- to   explain   away the   position  taken by his newspaper.    It   is so much safer  to write  privately   than   publicly   about  such   delicate matters.    The  unkindest cut of all came when the  same  J.   C.   McEag-an  sent the World to every voter  in.  the  district.    The people  could have forgiven the World's   opposition   to  the Corbin  charter but the attempt to force them into reading* its pages  is altogether too much.    Sanitary Officer Taylor feels indig-  nant about the matter.    For a mining   town,   the streets of  Greenwood were comparatively clean but now the}-   are littered   with Vancouver   Worlds, thrown away by   disg-usted  residents of the city.    The stationers also  object.    Heretofore the frugal Chinamen who  conduct  the   wash houses in  the city bought unsold papers from the stationers   and used  them for wrapping* purposes.    Now this trade  is lost to the  stationers   as   the   Chinamen can   get all   the Vancouver  Worlds they need for nothing.  We sincerely regret that we are forced to charge the  Turner g-overnment with this fresh otttrag*e upon the people  of Boundary- Creek district.' The labels on the World show  that the subscriptions have been paid by some one up to  August 31, 1898. As the recipients didn't pay for something* they don't want it is just possible that J. C. McEagan  whose chief virtue is egotism, has cajoled the g-overnment  into believing* that the World is a good campaig-n sheet to  send to the benighted electors of Boundary Creek district.  Three. g*reat evils have been inflicted upon Boundary Creek  district : Eoss of political power, the defeat of the Corbin.  charter and the Vancouver World. Some people of more  than average intelligence  greatest evil of the three.  maintain that the' latter is the  "AS-  *"Jk"  **&  GERRYMANDER   ACT.  The provincial secretary   recently   presented,   a   return to  the legislature showing the number of names upon the pro  vincial voters' list and the number of applicants asking-to  be enrolled. The return which is up to April 9th, 1898, is  useful in discussing* the .gerrymander which is soon to become a law of this province.    The return follows :  .���-,-'."                                ' ���    " Voters. Applicants-  Comox'.:.,..,; .,;..

The sparsely populated districts being- more easily  influenced will return g-overnment supporters. In this forecast districts like Yale and Kootenay are grouped as the  present boundaries are affected, by the new redistribution,  bill.    The forecast follows :  Districts returning* g-overnment supporters :   "   '  District. Members.    Voters.

It is  simply one of the possibilities and is published to show the  absolute absurdity of the redistribution, bill. The tables  are based upon the provincial secretary's return. They  show that 8325 voters of this province can. return 19.members���a majority of the house���while 23278 voters are represented b3r only 18 members. One-fourth of the voting population of the province has more political power than the  remaining* three-fourths.  But the government .says that in a province like this  area, should be considered as well as population. If this is  admitted the measure becomes-still .more absurd. Victoria,  with a. voting* population of 5225 'is g-iven four members,  while West Kootenay' and East Yale combined' have a. voting* population of 5510 and are given only four members.  Victoria is a. compact city : West Kootenay makes a district  that is nearly 40,000 miles in extent.  Eooking at the measure from, any point of view, nothing* can'be said in its favor. When, the disfranchised people of the interior come to fully realize that they are sacrificed in the interests of a. discredited g*aug\ Of politicians at  Victoria, they will not be slow in asserting- their rights and  forcing* the government to g*ive them justice. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  "CANADA   FOR   CANADIANS."  To THE   Editok :���Canada   for   the  Canadians seems to be the cr3r of most  of  the   newspapers   of Canada   at the  -'moment.    Now   when   I  first came to  British Columbia in 1886, I often heard  Canadians   dubbed    North   American  Chinamen.    I    never    could   discover  why and how the3* had g-ot that honorable and dignified title.    But Mr, Editor I realU' think the way  the  Dominion members of parliament have treated  Corbin\s application for a charter is so  much like the many acts I could enumerate     of   the   Chinese    government.  The sixty-six members the   C.   P.   R.  herded   together   to   beat   Mr. Corbin  should    be   known   hereafter   as   the  " North American Eiterati and Mandarins   of   Canada."     They   should  be  decorated  when   they   appear   in  the  Dominion house or at any other public  meeting with pig-tail appendages, yellow petticoats,   and   peacock feathers  .stuck in their hats.  Now I will try and be serious and ask  these ''������ Eiterati and Canadian Manda-  rins"   a few questions regarding- Corbin's  proposal  that  they  have killed.  When the C. P. R. is built through this  district what is to  prevent  merchants  and traders from  getting  their  g-oods  in from the United States ?    Does not  the  C.   P. R. run into Seattle?    Is not  Seattle connected   with   an   American  ' transcontinental  line ?    Will not mining  men   send their ore for  treatment  to the smelter that can give  them the  best returns ?    If the  Everett smelter  can treat refractory ores   better   than  any other smelter, Everett will get the  business.    Has not ore been sent  from  Australia  to   this   smelter   for   treatment?    Do    these   Canadian   Mandarins  for one moment think that  mining men are  g-oing*  to patronize home  smelters  unless they can g-et the same  returns ?    Why do they not pass a bill  to prevent ore from Canada being sent  to Swansea, Wales, for treatment?  Competition in railway communication would have g*iven all hands up  here a better chance. Then why, oh !  why ! did these learned sixty-six members prevent Mr. Corbin coming* in  here-���and lastly���why did they not  make the C. P. R. give some substantial guarantee that the}* would start  building at once, when ��� it is so well  known that this rich country must lie  idle until the Iron Hbrse runs through  it. FuNGUvS.  A   Telephone   Line.  The Telephone Co. has already  erected the poles in Republic and expect to have outside connection with  that growing- town in a vei*3* short  time. The committee appointed by the  Commercial Association has written to  the management of the Nelson & Ver-  non line asking* upon what terms they  will establish a branch to Greenwood.  It is hoped that satisfactory arrangements may be made with the company  as a telephone connection with the outside world will be a great advantage to  those doing business in this district.

At a meeting of the  Recordia Syndicate held recently in   Eon don   Mr.   E.  M. E. Munns of Greenwood   remarked  that he had just arrived from Boundary  Creek and he was pleased   to  have the  opportunity of  expressing his opinion  that  the   company  held very valuable  properties.    The Anaconda, which has  already been   developed  by four 30-ft.  tunnels;   he 'considered was one of the  best mines in the  district.    The  company had erected log  cabins   and   cut  trails,   so  that  work  could be started  almost at once.    Turning to the Forest  Grove  and  Excelsior, he   stated   that  they joined the Anaconda ;   very little  work   has   been  done on them, except  that a shaft has been   sunk   about   12  feet, exposing- a  very  large vein,   the  lode   being   traced for a   considerable  distance, and indications went to prove  that the result of  more work would be  very encouraging-.    He  did  not knowi  the Sky Eark camp property, as it was  acquired a few days   after he  had left  that district.    He had   a knowledg-e of  the company's properties   at   Baker's  Greek,   and,   from  all   accounts, they  were  looked  upon as  .splendid properties.    Surface samples g-ave very g"pod  assays, and free gold   was   visible   to  the naked eye.    He did not see, considering the terms   agreed  upon  by   Mr.  Corbin,   how   the    government. could  refuse to grant him a charter.    Boundary Creek   wanted   transportation and  development work pushed on and then  smelters would be required.    The Cana-  dian Pacific Railway would pass within a quarter of a.mile of the Anaconda  group.    All the properties in the Boundary  district  were   turning-   out very  well, improving- as depth was attained.  Great  activity   was   in   progress, and  every claim where work has been done  was snapped   up   by   buyers���in   fact  there was quite a  boom  in  the  camp.  There   was  no doubt that   Greenwood  City was coming-   to  the fore.    In   his  opinion  British   Columbia would show  a  very  large   output   when   they  got  more smelters, and it was only a question of   time.    He   believed   that   the  Boundary district would be  one of the  leading   districts in British Columbia.  Old Ironsides and Knob Hill.  The work of developing the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill properties in  Greenwood camp has become so extensive that a new superintendent for  both properties has been secured. During Mr. Graves' visit here he made arrangements with Wm. Y. Williams to  assume the superintendency of the development work on both properties.  Mr. Williams is an experienced mining  man. J. F. Hemenway, who has fully  recovered from his recent severe illness, remains as agent and local business manager for both companies.  This week all the water was pumped  out of the Old Ironsides mine. Mr.  Williams intends employing- a force of  12 men on the Old Ironsides. Work on  the Knob Hill will begin in a very  short time.  ������$-��� ���$-����-$�� *$�� 4* ��$-. >$�� ��$-�� *$����� 4-* 4. 4�� 4* �����$* 4*4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* is  4*  Is prepared to supply the trade with first-class 'Bottled.

A dispatch to the Spokesman-Review  from Victoria, under date Maj^ 3rd,  states that the government is prepared  to make changes in the redistribution  bill that are expected to meet with  approval .in the Kootenay country.  ���"Today an amendment was brought in  giving* West Kootenay another member and thus increasing the representatives in the house to 38, instead of 37  as first proposed. West Kootenay is to  be divided into four^ridings instead of  three���Revelstoke, Nelson'and Rossland. The fourth riding is to be Slocan, formed bj* taking the Eardeaii  Eake country from Revelstoke, and  Pilot Bay and all north of the Kootenay river and west: of the arm of the  lake from the Nelson riding. Rossland  riding* is unchanged.''' Should this  dispatch prove correct the g-overnment  by-patching- has made a bad measure  worse. By* giving another member to  Slocan without reducing- the size of  the Rossland district, conclusivelj'"  shows that the g-overnment act of disfranchising the people of Boundary  Creek was deliberate. The government cannot consistently subdivide the  smaller and less populous Kootenaj*  districts and leave Rossland district  with nearly 2000 votes unchanged.  The only remedy is to make Rossland  or Trail Creek an electoral district and.  make another electoral district of the  countr}* lying* between Christina Ea^e  and Penticton. If the old boundaries  of East Yale remained unchanged, it  would give Boundary Creek infinitely  more justice than the present redistribution bill.  OPPOSITION   CANDIDATES.  Several opposition candidates have  alread}- been nominated for the approaching provincial elections. It is  reported that J. C. Brown, one of the  most vigorous campaign fighters in the  province, is to be the opposition candi  date in New Westminster City. F. J.  Deane, the editor of the Kamloops Sentinel, has been campaigning in North  Yale for several months and his  chances for defeating* Hon. G. B. Martin are most encouraging-. Dr. R. E.  McKechine, Nanaimo's leading medical man, will contest Nanaimo City in  the interests of the opposition. Ralph  Smith an eloquent debater and a prominent labor man will be the candidate  in South Nanaimo. It is also reported  that T. W. Paterson the manager of  the Victoria & Sydnejr Railway will be  Speaker Booth's opponent in North  Victoria.  Donald Graham the present member  will likel3r be,the opposition candidate  in East Yale. Owing* to the uncertainty about the redistribution bill no  candidates have been nominated in the  ���"���    ��� ���  Kootenays. Who they are makes but  little difference as far as the result is  concerned. Enraged by the injustice  of the redistribution bill, the electors  of Kootenay would vote for almost  any one opposed to the Turner govern-  ment.  Camp   McKinney   Speaks.  The people of Camp McKinney and  vicinity are also up in arms ag-ainst  the redistribution bill. A petition  having the signature of nearly every  one in that promising district was presented to the local legislature protesting- ag-ainst the division of East Yale:  excepting at Penticton.    The agitation  should be kept up as it may not yet be  too late to get the bill amended so as to  give the people in South-East Yale  some measure of justice.  Mr. Graham has given notice of motion cto amend the redistribution bill by  restoring the old boundaries of Yale  and providing- two members for the  same.

If  Pi'  i  fete-..-  IPs;  ����{���������'���  IMPASSABLE   ROADS.  m.<  i  ?:���  A few dollars  expended   at this season of the year upon   the  wagon roads  would do more g-ood and be more appreciated than hundreds of dollars expended during-   the  summer months.    In a  district   like  Boundary   Creek   where  important mines are being- worked at a  distance from the business centre, the  necessity for having- wag-on roads in a  passable condition is very, great.    It is  discouraging-  to  business men to have  their horses ruined, and wagons broken  in hauling g*oods to the mining* camps.  A few dollars judiciously  spent would  put   these   roads   in  a fairly passable  condition ; but the few dollars   are not  forthcoming unless the long  suffering  business men put  their hands in their  pockets.and do  the  work  the  government of the province is supposed to do.  The road to the B. C.   mine   could   be  repaired for a small amount of money.  A   few   dollars   expended in filling in  holes   and  draining   off   the   streams  made  by   melting   snow   would   save  many dollars in horse flesh and wagons  and the morality of' the  business men  who are forced to  haul supplies to the  mines.    The road through   Greenwood  and "Wellington camps is  equally bad.  It is reported that those  interested  in  having the road  opened  have become  impatient  and   are   contributing   the  necessary money* to make  it passable.  We are well aware of the fact that in a  mountainous country such as this, bad  roads, may be expected in the  interval  between    good    sleighing   and   good  wheeling.   'But   objection   is properly  taken to the neglect shown by the road  officials to the necessity for expediting  the work of the chinooks, Old King Sol  and the warm spring rains.    We think  that the districts on the coast are more  fortunate  in  this  respect.    They   are  nearer the powers that be and get their  roads   repaired   promptly.    If   a road  leading to  some farm in the coast districts   becomes  impassable,   the   road  foreman at once sets   to   work to make  it passable ;   but in a mining   district  things are different.    During the summer months, the'money   appropriated  is spent and no road man is seen   until  the next  summer   rolls   around.    The  roads may be washed   away   by mountain streams; culverts and bridges may  be swept away ; Old   Jack   Frost   and  other   winter    influences   may     have  destroyed  fairly   good   roads   but   no  relief  comes   unless   the people themselves undertake the expense of  doing  the work they pay   the   government of  this province to do.

Because they do not shout for the  new polic3* of" Canada for Canadians"  they cannot have their war news dished up to theiii  every  day.    Snodg-rass  says   so   and   Snodgrass knows everything  worth   knowing   about the mail  service in these   diggings.    The   mail  from. Grand   Forks   is to reach   here  evei"3r Tuesday, Thursday   and  Saturday and-no-oftener.    The   intervening  days the unpatriotic people of the town  who shouted for Corbin's railway must  eret their war news from Thos.   Walsh  and Jack Eucy   and call the other local  authorities   on   the Spanish-American  war.    The   war  news    furnished     by  them  is   more   interesting   and almost  �� as reliable   as   that   furnished  by   the  Associated  Press   to   the   Spokesman-  Review, but should the   Dominion parliament learn this, a censorship would  at   once   be established in Greenwood.  People   in   Canada   who   support   an  American   road   should   not   get  war  news every day.  It is   rather a striking   comnientan*  upon the   laxity   with which  the post-  office   department   deals   with   postal  arrangements, that a  town   which enjoyed a dail3* mail   service  for  nearly  two years should  have that advantage  denied its people after it   has grown to  some importance.    Postoffice Inspector  Fletcher   visited   the   district   a   few  months   ago   and  he  gave assurances  that the mail service would be improved.    We iire  forced   to   the   conclusion  that W. J. Snodgrass does   cibout as he  pleases   with   the   postoffice   officials.  He has the contract to carry the   mails  from   Penticton   to   Grand Forks.    No  fault   can   be   found   with    the service  from   Penticton   to   Greenwood.    The  mails are carried bv an excellent statre   '  line and delivered promptly. But between Greenwood and Grand Forks  thing-s are different. The carrying of  Her Majesty's mails between these two  points is farmed out to almost any one  that will undertake to do the work gratuitously for Snodgrass. It is ridiculous to suppose that Greenwood is to be  left with a tri-weekly mail service.  The postoffice department should act  promptly. They should insist, upon  Mr. Snodgrass maintaining- a good  service between Greenwood and Grand  Forks and if he is not paid, he should  be paid for a daily service.  THE   CHIEF COMMISSIONER.  British Columbia  has  been  blessed  with chief commissioners that were  a  credit to  the  province.    Hon.   Forbes  G. Vernon, who is now   agent-general  in Eondon, was an excellent predecessor   to  Hon.   George  B.   Martin,   and  Hon. George B. Martin's shoulders are  exactly   suited   for  bearing  the  Hon.  Forbes' mantle.    What  more  need be  said regarding these two distinguished  statesmen !  ', A  striking  evidence   of  Hon.   Forbes'   genius   for  statesmanship was to be found in   the fact  that  he has the highest contempt for " those  Canadians."   Previous to the last general election,he dubbed the  Canadians  in this riding as people without  influence.    His brilliant successor has  the  same mark   of  genius.    In  discussing*  the   Chinese  question   from   that  patriotic point of view from which he discusses   all  public  questions,  the Hon.  Georg*e told the members of the  legislature that he once had a Chinaman era-  ployed on his ranch ; that  he paid him  $15 per month, and that he was a better-  workman than any Canadian.  Some years ag*o a very wise man  told the world that a prophet is not  without honor save in his own country.  Unfortunately for the distinguished  .statesman, history has an inconvenient  habit of repeating itself, and we fear  that the electors of North Yale will not  give to the Chief Commissioner the  respect to which he is entitled by his  lofty utterances. Nothwithstanding  the reputation accorded them by the  Hon, Forbes, we have a dim recollection of certain Canadians in East Yale  voting- for one Donald Graham some  years ago, and we fear the Hon. George  B. will meet with the same ungenerous  treatment in North Yale.  The ungrateful Canadian electors  excuse themselves by asserting that  under certain influences chief commissioners are prone to talk too much. We  think this assertion does the present  chief commissioner a gross injustice.  We feel sure that did he oftener give  expression to those lofty sentiments  which fill his manly bosom, the tone  of the discussions in the parliament of  this province would be elevated above,  the commonplace. We have the very  ."���"Treat honor of learning that the Kam-  loops Standard ag-rees with this view.  F. C. Gamble, C.

One of the arg-uments used by Sir  William Van Home ag-ainst the granting- of a charter to the Kettle River-  Valley Railway Company, was that it  was not necessary to go to an American railway for competition because  the V. V.<& E. would g-ive the C. P. R.  all the competition they needed. In  an exuberant outburst of patriotic eloquence, Sir William told the railway  committee to give the C. P. R. plenty  of Canadian competition but he didn't  want American railways g-etting- a  share of the trade. The House of Commons did what the railway committee  refused to do and the competition from  American sources was killed. When  Sir William shouted for V. V. & E.  competition he knew what he was talking- about. A bill has been passed by  the railway committee by which the V.  V. & E. is to be leased to the C. P. R !  It is not surprising* that Sir William  Van Home shouted for this kind of  competition ;   neither   is  it  surprising*  that W. W. B. Mclnnes and Geo. R.  Maxwell were, found working- with the  C. P. R. to kill the Corbin bill. They  and their friends will get their reward  as soon as the V. V. & E. charter-  passes into the hands of the C. P. R.  The C. P. R. are now masters of the  railway situation in British Columbia.  Every railway charter, every subsidy,  and ever}* land grant has passed  under its control. Unless the members  of the government and the members of  parliament have lost all concern for  the public interest in their anxiety to  create a railway monopoly in this  country they will insist upon the C. P.  R. Company fulfilling its solemn obligations by at once commencing active  railway construction in this district.  MIDWAY   NOTES.

A dispatch from Ottawa states that  in the railway committee of the House  of Commons the V. V. & E. railway  bill was reported on favorably by a  sub-committee. The bill authorizes a  lease of the line to the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company who are  said to have promised construction at  the coast end of the line.  R. G.

The Jenckes Machine Co. has secured  a license to carry on business in the  province *as an extra-provincial company. F. R. Mendenhall, Rossland, is  agent for the companj'".  Ross Thompson, the father of Rossland, paid a visit to Summit camp last  week. He and other Rossland mining  men have a bond on the Oro Dinero  and other properties in Summit camp.  Mr. Henderson one of the shareholders in the Rathmullen Mining* Co.,  arrived from Vancouver on Sunday  and went tip to Summit camp where  the company has some mining* properties.  Aid. W..B. Paton returned on Friday  from Spallumcheen. After riding on  the stao-e from Penticton to Greenwood  he is more than ever convinced of the  necessity for a railway through the  district.  Services will be held at eleven o'clock  and eight o'clock in Rendell & Co.'s  hall to-morrow. Sundaj- school will  be held at three in the afternoon. In  the evening Rev. Mr. Gu}*'s subject  will be, " Eessons from the Spanish-  American War."  Thk Tim'KS has received for ptiblica.-  tion a letter from "Citizen" pointing-  out the unfairness of allowing* those  who were injured at the fire paj*ing*  the bills for medical treatment. Before  Citizen's letter was written Messrs.  Rendell & Co. g*ave instructions to the  medical men of the city that the bills  referred to should be presented to them  for paj-ment. We therefore think that  Citizen will concede that there is no  <rood   irrounds  for his letter and couse-  quently no   necessity   for   its publication.  Mr. Stephen Taylor, formerly of  Greenwood has been elected a member  of the Board of Guardians for the parish of Barrow, England. The Barrow  newspapers congratulate the people  upon Mr. Taylor's election. He is expected to put new vigor into the conduct of the public business.the  guard  ians have to discharge.  Returned   From   the   East.  Mr. F. Keffer, M. E., and Mrs. Keffer returned   on   Thursday   after a six  weeks'visit to New   York   and   other  eastern centres.    During his   visit   in  New York the  British   Columbia Copper   Company,   Etd.,   was  organized.  The incorporators of the new company  are practically the'same financial men  as those in   the  Boundary Mines Company.    The   latter    own   the   Mother  Eode, Primrose,   No. 7,   and other important claims in the  district.    It was  deemed advisable to place  the Mother  Eode   and   adjoining claims under the  control of a new company ;   hence   the  organization   of  the   B.C. Copper Co.  Mr. Keffer when seen by a Timks' representative stated that during his visit  in New York the excitement in connection with   the   Spanish-American war  was at its height and  that  it was diffi-  cult for people to take   any   interest in,  mining*  or  anything*  else save defeating   the   Spaniards.   'He   was greatly  disappointed at the defeat  of  the Corbin charter but   the fact that the probability   of   securing   a railway   at an  early date had thereby   been lessened  would  not   deter   his   company   from  actively    prosecuting     work    on   the  Mother   Eode   and   other    properties.  The powerful machinery ordered from  the Ingersoll-Sergeant Drill Co., is being speedily and specially made in the  company's shops    in     Montreal.    Mr.  Keffer expects to have it in position at  the   Mother Eode about the   middle  of  July.  Mr. and Mrs. Keffer spent two weeks  in New York and some time in Ohio.  They greatly en-joyed their trip east.  An   Enemy   of   Boundary   Creek.  W. W. B. Mclnnes, M.

With the exception of the r ailwa3*  .station, the smelter and Kendrick's  "brick store the entire business part of  Northport was destroyed by fire on  Monday morning. The blaze started  about 20 minutes past four, in a little  tailor shop back of Madden's saloon,  and the cause is supposed to have been  the explosion of a coal oil lamp. The  fire burned back to the bluff, and the  course of the flames was changed towards the Columbia. Up the little  main street the fire rag-ed in both direc-o  tions until it burned itself out for lack  of fuel, and it was after 8 o'clock before the flames subsided. By singular  g-ood chance all the people sleeping in  the doomed buildings were awakened  and g-ot out safely, so that there was  no loss of life. The lack of water supply, almost annulled any efforts to  -check the flames, but the citizens did  fine work in saving- the contents of the  business houses and residences. Dynamiting- was resorted to but did little  g-ood. Practically everything- movable  was saved, though of course the damage ranged from 30 to 50, per cent. It  is hard to estimate the amount of damage. Though hundreds of people were  rendered homeless }/et there willbe no  suffering, for the weather is,fine and  the people have secured tents for temporary homes until ��� they can rebuild,  while there is no scarcity of provisions.  Spokane " promptly offered assistance  to the homeless people and the S. F. N.  Railway carried all supplies necessary  free of charge.  Work on the Sunset.  A report was circulated during the  week that the Sunset had been closed  down. Such is not the case by any  means. Superintendent Macfarlane  found it necessary to let out four men  because of a chang-e in the development plans, but there are still eight  men at work. A double shift is being  run in the tunnel to crosscut the ledge,  and an upraise is being made to shaft  for air. The outlook for the Sunset  was never more favorable, and notwithstanding rumors to the contrary  the development of the property will  be pushed during the summer.  The   B. C.   Mine.  Dr. F. H. Hatch, Alfred Tilly and  Percy Tarbutt of Eondon, Eng., arrived via Penticton on Wednesday, and  on Thursday left for the B. C. mine in  which property they are interested.  Dr. Hatch was of the opinion that a  great deal of English capital would be  invested iu British Columbia mines  this season. He is visiting this province for the first time. The party  came direct to Boundary Creek.  A public meeting was called for  Thursday evening to discuss ways and  means of holding a Queen's Birthday  -celebration. As the school-house is  not available for public meetings, and  Rendell & Co.'s hall was used by the  Foresters, the meeting was not held.  Boundary Valley   Lodge,  No. 38, I.O.O.F.

One of  the   longest  sessions   of the  provincial   legislature   was   held  last  week.    The  house   was  convened at 2  ���o'clock   on   Tuesday    afternoon    and  shortly afterwards went   into  committee to consider the   redistribution   bill.  The   g-overnmerit   evinced   a desire to  railroad   the   bill   through committee  without discussion and  the  opposition  were equally determined that  the  bill  should    not   pass    -without     material  amendments.    The government would  not consent to an adjournment and all  through    the    night,    the    opposition  fought the  passage  of clause 2 which  increases the membership from 33 to-37.  At   1:30   Wednesday      afternoon   Dr.  Walken   who was in the chair  refused  to put an amendment moved by a member of  the  opposition.    The   rules   of  the house were disregarded.    Mr. Seni-  lin seeing that it was useless attempting    to   do   anything   since   Speaker  Booth upheld  the conduct   of the government supporters, withdrew from the  house and his supporters followed him.  The government then   passed   all   the  ���clauses   of   the   bill   but  two and the  house adjourned at 3:30 after  being in  continous session for 25^ hours.    The  fight was not without its effcet for it is  now reported  that  the  government is  .anxious to allow amendments so  as to  appease the people   of the interior who  are furious because of  the  outrageous  provisions in the bill.

Gazette  contains a certificate of registration of  Ihe British Columbia Copper Company  Etd. The head office of the company  is in the city of New York. The head  office of the company in this province  is at Anaconda and F. Keffer, M. E.,  is the attorney for the company. The  capital is $1,000,000 divided into 200,000  shares of $55, each. The objects of the  company includes the carrying on of  every industry connected with mining-.  Visiting   Properties.  Mr. Sussman, the C. P. R. mining  expert, examined several properties  during the week. In company with  Mr. G. H. Collins he visited the B. C.  mine in Summit camp and was naturally surprised at seeing- so much development work done. It is estimated  that there is nearly 1200 tons of ore on  the B. C. dump awaiting* shipment.  The larg-e force of miners employed  there are now crosscuttirig- and drifting- at 150 feet. Mr. Sussman also visited the properties in Greenwood, Wel-  ling-ton and Smith's Camp.  Similkameen   Sunset  Sold.  It is reported that the Sunset in  Similkameen district has been secured  by the British American Corporation.  The price paid for a seven-eig-hth interest is said to be $55,000. The Sunset  was owned by R. A. Brown of Grand  Forks. Mr. Brown passed throug*h  Midway on Wednesday and stated that  the sale had been made. He had an  earnest of the sale in the shape of a  big* roll of bills.  The Sunset is a copper property  which has been the subject of favorable reports by the mining- men who  visited it. Mr. Patterson a Rossland  mining- expert spent two weeks at the  property a short time ag-o and it is  quite possible that he was acting- for  the British American Corporation.  A   Ridiculous   Charge.  The Reservation Record makes the  wild charg-e that the Greenwood Municipal authorities had Foust arrested  with a �� view to securing- the $2,500  reward offered by the Idaho authorities. The charge is utterly ridiculous.  The municipality did not instig-ate  Foust's arrest and refused to have anything- to do with the case. The arrest  was made by a provincial officer and  the charge was promptly dismissed  when the case was heard by Mr. Hallett sitting- as a Justice of the Peace  and not as Police Mag-istrate. The  Record should make itself acquainted  with the facts before making- sweeping-  assertions ag-ainst the honesty of municipal authorities on this side of the  line.  Eee Davenport, the C. P.

The regular meeting of the Citv  Council was held in the Court house on  Monda)' evening. His Worship, Mayor  . Wood presided and all the aldermen  ^excepting* Aid. Paton and Kerr were  present. The public morals , by-law  was   reconsidered   and   finally  passed.  ,., The rate by-law for 1898 received its  third reading. The rate of ordina^  taxation is 12'mills  with   one-sixth off,  -���'���' if taxes are paid, before   August   31st.  A -by-law"to   provide  for  interest and  sinking*     fund   on     debentures, 'also"  received   its   third  reading.    The rate  for this purpose .is 10 mills.   ,  Aid.  Phelan   drew   the   attention   of  the council to the fact   that  dynamite  was being stored within the city limits.  After some discussion a resolution was  passed requesting the city constable to  caution business houses to observe the  provision of the provincial act dealing-  with the storag*e of powder'.    Under the  act any   person   keeping   more than 10  .-.-���pounds'of -dynamite', or giant powder  within two miles of the city limits is  liable to a fine of $500.  Aid. Phelan gave notice that at the  next meeting* of the council he will  introduce a by-law to provide for the  ���organisation of a volunteer fire department.  Will   Develop   His   Mines.  Mr. J. E. Boss reached Greenwood  on Monday. He was accompanied by  his daughter, Miss May Boss. Mr.  Boss reports that the machinery for the  Stemwinder and Brooklyn-has- been at  Bossburg for several days and will be  brought to the mines as soon as the  road on the summit becomes passable.  Mr. Boss intends to work both properties. He was naturally disappointed  because of the defeat of the Corbin  ���charter.'���' Mr. Boss saw 'Mr. Corbin  previous to leaving Spokane and the  latter g-entleman assured him that he  intended to build through the reservation. Mr. Corbin instructed Mr. Bod-  "well to cease working* for the charter  because if the Canadian government is  anxious to keep Canada for Canadians  he does not feel very anxious to expend  his own.nioney in building up a Canadian district. The receiit developments of the reservation mining* interests offers sufficient inducement to .  build'a. railway on the. American side  without reference to the Boundary  Creek country. Mr. Corbin intends to  build this railway; He will push it as  far   as   Midway    and.   will      naturally  secure  a   share of the Boundary Creek-  trade,    but   the   road   will   not   be   as  advantageous   as   if   it had been    con-'  structed along* tlie valley of the Kettle  River.  Off to the Hills.  J. P. Harla.ii, having leased his a.ssay"  office to W. S. Keith. M.E.. intends  leaving* next week on a prospecting  tour on tlie reservation. Mr. Harlan  cannot resist the fascination of outdoor life, and finds greater pleasure in  hunting* for ore bodies in the hills than  grinding- out values in an assay office.  Mr. Brown, Mr. Harlan's mining- partner, will accompany him on the prospecting* tour.  f:1  ���Pi:  ^~:**  ���������"li  In connection with " THE TIMES"  we have now one of the most com/  plete  Wk  JOB   PRINTING   OUTFITS  =TT  {X-^KfrWI* �� <��T  %.. t in the interior of  the Province,    With J    ,Jt  '     $>\ new power .Presses,   new Type, and a iy  j  ��� are in a position to fill any orders for f     M^     I  I stock of modern Printers' Stationery, we |   ^  Job Printing as reasonably, as satisfao  torily, and as expeditiously as can be  done in Spokane or on  the  coast,  A merchant who uses " cheap and  nasty " Stationery and Printing does his  business a serious injury/vit is dear at  a gift.
