' A HE Bankers' Banquet was a fitting celebration of  the establishment of three chartered: banks in  Greenwood. The banquet was a success in every  way. It not only provided an evening of de-  ^ lightful recreation for those'present, but it was  also the means of making- the citizens of Green-  '. wood better acquainted with/each other and with  those who have charge of the banking' institutions of the  city. The bankers, too, entered into the spirit of the  occasion, and gathered a vast amount of valuable information concerning Boundary creek and its boundlessresources.  The impromptu speeches were all rich in material ; they  were not too long, but admirably suited to the occasion.  The management of the Imperial hotel certainly deserve  a great deal of credit for helping to make the banquet a  success. As the bill of fare shows, the dinner was an exceptionally good one. It was excellently cooked. The  service was also all that could be desired;  At 9:30 o'clock the chairman, Mr. "Ralph Smailes, led  the way into the banquet room, and took his seat at the  head of the table. At either side were H. ?H. Morris of the  Bank of Commerce and Mr. J. Anderson, of the Bank of  B. N. A. Mayor Wood occupied the vice-chair and seated  at his right was Mr. G. A. Henderson of the Bank of  Montreal. The other g-uests follow : H. B. Munroe, A. H.  SpeiT}', G. Arthur Rendell, JY.F. Hemenway, W. M. Law,  D. C. McRae, Aid. Jas. Kerr, R. F. Coates, Thos. Hardy,  Aid. M. J. Phelan, J. C. Olson, F. W. Vincent, John Keough,  W. T. Smith, S. Breslauer, Aid. L. S. M. Barrett, Mr.  Seymour of the Bank of Montreal, Mr. Smith of the Bank  of B.N. A., Mr. Scott of the Bank of Commerce, Police  Magistrate I. H. Hallett, Sheriff Pemberton, A. S. Black,  Aid. C. Scott Galloway and Duncan Ross.  The substantial part of the banquet over, Chairman  Smailes called for order and at once gave interesting-  reminiscences of early Greenwood days. Three years ago  he and Mr. Rendell had walked over the townsite of Greenwood. It was then covered with trees���a veritable wilderness. Confident as they were in the resources of the  district and their ultimate development, there were none  sufficiently optimistic to believe that the district would develop so rapidly that citizens would now be celebrating the  opening of three chartered banks. He believed that the  district was on the eve of a prosperity unequalled in B, C.  (Applause.) He hoped that all present would cast off any  restraint and enjoy themselves thoroughly. He proposed a  toast to Her Gracious Majesty, the Queen.  The toast was enthusiastically received, and all voices  joined in the stirring notes of the national anthem.  Mayor Wood rose amid applause to propose the President of the United States. He expressed his deep gratification at the brotherly feeling existing between the two great  nations of the earth, and paid a compliment to the enterprise of the American citizens doing business in the district.  He hoped that the stars and stripes and the union jack  could alwaj's float entwined together.    (Loud applause.)  Mr. W. M. Law responded briefly, paying a glowing  tribute to President McKinley and the administration  during the late war. He incidentally referred to the establishment of three- chartered banks and congratulated  Greenwood upon this new evidence of the stability of the  city.  Aid. C. Scott Galloway's rich voice was then heard in a  Scotch song.    The majority-of the bankers being Scotch-  delight  at  hearing  their  men,    they     expressed "-'their/  national song-s so well sung-.  Mr. Duncan Ross, in rising to propose the toast, ���' Our  Guests,'' expressed his regret at the absence of Mr. Naden,  who was unavoidably compelled to go away on business.  The committee in charge thought that Mr. Naden, who<so  materially assisted business men and the advancement of  the city before chartered banks were established, should  have the honor of proposing the toast of welcome to the  banks. (Hear, hear.) He congratulated the citizens, and  expressed the hope that the management of the banks  would never regret opening* in Greenwood. Speaking as  an observer, and not as a business man,'he could assure the  bankers that the progress of Greenwood had not depended'  so much upon the illimitable wealth surrounding**it as upon  the enterprise and integrity of the business men. The  names of G. A. Henderson/Bank of Montreal, J. Anderson,  Bank of B. N. A., and H. H. Morris, Bank of Commerce,  were coupled with the toast.  Mr. Henderson deemed it an honor and a priyileg-e to be  entertained by the citizens of Greenwood. It was a remarkable development when it was considered that three  years ago Greenwood was a wilderness and to-night such a  jolly lot of fellows were celebrating the opening of three  chartered banks. The city had a remarkable location and  a remarkable future. It was surrounded by boundless  wealth. He fully agreed with Mr. Ross, after having business relations with Greenwood business men for several  years, that they were men of enterprise, integrit3r and indomitable perseverance. He referred to the extensive inir  provements made. Greenwood did not appear like the  ordinary mining town.  A voice :" Like a banking town." (Laughter.) Mr.  Henderson: "Yes, like a banking town." Continuing,  Mr. Henderson referred to his acquaintance with Mr. Wood,  paying* him a glowing tribute for*his push and enterprise  and congratulating him upon his happ)r selectipn of a '  townsite. Greenwood was so situated that the trade of  Boundary creek was hers. (Applause.) She held the trade  now and was entitled to keep it. (Renewed applause.) He  hoped to stay in Greenwood, and if the directors had sufficient confidence in himself to allow him to take charge of  what he considered was destined to become one of the most  important branches in the province, he would gladly remain here and become a resident of Greenwood. (Loud  applause.) '  Mr. Anderson of the Bank of B. N. A. congratulated  the citizens of Greenwood upon the very sumptuous banquet.  It was a very unexpected but a very pleasant honor to be a  guest upon such an occasion. He had visited Greenwood a  year ago and was struck with the remarkable progress  made by the town. He complimented the business men  upon their enterprise, pointing out that they had secured  the trade because they had put up the necessary money to  make roads to the different camps. These camps would  make any cit3r great and prosperous. He was glad to-night  that he had been sent to Greenwood. He had received a  glad welcome, indeed, from the citizens. Their hospitality  had never been excelled, and if he would be excused for  parodying Burns, he would say : " In Heaven itself I wish  no more than just a Greenwood welcome." (Loud applause.)  Mr. Morris of the Bank of Commerce was the next  speaker. He confessed that he had but little to say after  the speeches of Messrs. Henderson and Anderson. He had  once mapped out what he intended to say on a similar occasion, but   found   that   this  plan was of little use.    He had  [Continued on page 4.]  i      '  K i: THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  found that all the good things had  been stolen by previous speakers.  (Iyaug*hter.) The chairman had said  that if any one had stated three years  ag*o that they would be celebrating* the  opening of three chartered banks, he  would not be believed. Mr. Morris  could g*o the chairman one better :  If any one had told him three weeks  ag*o there would be three banks in  Greenwood to-nig*ht he would not have  believed it. (I^oud laug*hter.) Mr.  Morris thoug-ht there was to be only  one bank, and he felt quite sure he  knew the one.���'' (Renewed laughter.)  Greenwood was a charming town. The  more he saw of it the more he liked it.  He liked the business men and regretted he was not going* to stay here.  He hoped to visit the city often���after  the railway is built. (daughter.) He  must acknowledge that they didn't  decide in a day to come to Greenwood,  but had gathered information concerning* the conditions here, and this information was so encourag*ing* that they  decided this was an ideal banking-  point. He knew the town would grow  rapidly, but hoped the banks would  not increase in proportion. (L/aughter;)  He proposed a toast to Greenwood,  coupling* with it the mayor and alder-.  ��� men. ��� ',,   -  . '.'.,'������:������  Mayor Wood humorously referred to  his first landing in B. G. 32 years ag*o.  He played  himself out farming*, then  he tried trading* and  then  townsiting*.  After many tips'  and  downs he felt tonight that townsiting* was  not  so bad  after all.    (Hear, hear.)    He  was glad  that those who settled  here  had prospered and had g*ood prospects of doin-g*  better.    Success was indeed sweet, and  he  felt  an  immeasurable  pleasure in  thus celebrating the  establishment of  three chartered banks, which, showed  that   the ' town   had   something* to it.  They had known ups and downs in the  past,; but when he woke  up  last  week  to; find that two banks were  ready for  business, he felt like exclaiming "Now  is the winter  of  our  discontent  made  g*lorious summer."    He  expressed his  pleasure    at   having*   Mr.   Henderson  here, and stated   that  Mr.   Henderson  had always  been   a  friend  of Greenwood.    There was an  old  saying* that  " money makes  the  mare g*o," and he  would say that if  the  banks gave the  mayor plenty of money  he  would see  that   the  contemplated   improvements  would   all   be   completed.     (Iyaug*hter  and applause.)  Aid. Barrett spoke  briefly  and Aid  Galloway,   after  offering*  tions, suggested the  congratula-  org*anization of a  board of trade, so that Greenwood interests on the outside could be properly  guarded and promoted. Aid. Kerr  made a brief, witty speech, and Aid.  Phelan made a flattering comparison  between Greenwood and American  boom towns. Bankers were usually  cautious and conservative people, and  by starting* here stamped Greenwood  as  a   town with a future.  Mr. J. F. Hemenway was then heard  in a comic song, and was forced to  respond to a vigorous encore. Mr.  Hemenway is blessed with a rich, well  trained baritone voice, vyhich, un-  fortunatelj'', is not heard often enough  in Greenwood.  Mr. Hard j then proposed the toast,  Boundary Creek, and in doing* so referred to the development the district  had made since he crossed the trails  some fourteen 3rears ago. Mr. Hardy  dwelt particularly on the transportation question, urging those present to  leave no stone unturned to secure competitive rates. Mr. Hardy discussed  Boundary creek from the standpoint of  a business man, making* a common-  sense, practical speech, but, unfortunately, lack of space precludes extended notice.  Mr. Keffer, in response, made the  speech of the evening*. He made no  attempt at oratory, but every sentence  was   teeming*   with   information coil  s'4* *$* *h 4* *$r *& 4r *$r 4r ^ ���$* 4r 4r 4? 4? 4r *$* *h*fc *&*&*$?*$?'&$��  Wholesale and Retail Dealers in  *  Fresh and Cured Meats  Fish and Oysters v ��� ^  Live and Dressed Poultry  ��f��v.,/  ��f��  Meats delivered at Mines free of charge.

He stated that  nearly $500,000 had already been spent  in developing* properties, but urged the  mining* men to keep up development  work. The district was well worth the  expenditure.    (Applause.)  Mr. Seymour of the Bank of Montreal is a decided acquisition to Greenwood musical circles. He was heard  in two song*s during the  delighted those present.  The other toasts were :." The Bar,"  proposed by Mr. McRae, and to which  Mr. Black and Mr. Hallett responded.  "The Staff, of the Banks," proposed  by Mr. Ross and responded to by Mr.  Smith, Mr. Scott and Mr. Seymour.

" Mr. Henderson," b}'Mr. Smith, and  " The Press," proposed by Mr. Rendell, and responded to by Mr. Ross.  "The I/adiesj" proposed by Mr.  Hemenway, and Mr. Munroe made an  eloquent reply.  Sheriff Pemberton, who was present,  made a short speech and sang a  patriotic song* in inimitable style.  "Auld L/ang Syne" brought a very  successful gathering to a close.  MINERAL   ACT,   1896.

Those acquainted with the mineral  resources of Camp McKinney, and  having* a knowledge of the vast amount  ���of money paid in dividends by the  Cariboo mine, often expressed surprise  that the enterprising* townsite man  never mapped out a city in this promising* camp. Towns h ave been platted  and lots have been sold in other sections where the inducements nor the  advantages were not  nearly  so great.  >: Greenwood men have decided to supply the want in Camp McKinney, and  in a short time there will be in the  market lots in a town which, judging*  from the large and rich mineral area  surrounding it, is destined  to  take no  mean rank among-st the mining centres  of the province.  The Times announced some time  ago that Geo. R. Naden, Thos. McDonnell, R. M. McEJntire and Nels L<eplant  of Greenwood and Mr. Ceperley of  Vancouver had bonded the Sailor in  Camp McKinney. The claim was  crown-granted in 1893, so that the surface rig*hts go with the property. The  syndicate are busy developing the  property and are working* on a strong  lead of high grade ore. The ground is  level, centrally located and is adjacent  to the Cariboo, Waterloo and other  prominent Camp McKinney properties.  Sydney M. Johnson is now subdividing the Sailor ground into lots, which  will be placed on the market in a short  time. So great is the confidence of  mining men in Camp McKinney that.  inquiries for lots in the new town have  already been many.  The syndicate have also secured five  or six properties surrounding the  Sailor, so that they have plenty of area  for a large town.  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  Arthur M. Whiteside, a barrister  from Rossland, has decided to locate  in Greenwood. He has secured offices  in the Barrett block.  R. M. McEntire left on Thursday for  for California, having received word  of the death of a sister and the serious  illness of his father. Mr. McEntire  expects to return about Christmas.  Cascade City enjoys the distinction  of being* the only town in Yale with  two newspapers. The Maple L,eaf  made its appearance last week. Messrs.  Nirbet & Sanders are the publishers.  The initial number of the Cascade  Record has made its appearance. The  thriving town of Cascade is to be congratulated upon this publication.  Messrs. Wilcox & Reilly, the proprietors, have begun well. They use good  paper and good type, and the paper is  well arranged and well printed. The  eight pag*es of the Record are well  written and contain many interesting*  paragraphs   relating*  to  Cascade  and  relating*  surrounding district.  The Old Ironsides   company is erecting"    some    substantial   buildings   on  their  properties   in   Greenwood camp.  /mc Already a store has   been  built and is  "   'occupied   by   Messrs.   Wynkoop    and  Stephens.    The  store  is  on  the   new  road,  which was  constructed last fall.  The telephone office has been removed  to the new store, but  the postoffice remains at the  old  store.    The  foundation .has  been  laid  for  a  large hotel  near the new store.

The Greenwood Water Power company has been sustained in its right to  the power at Boundary Falls. About  two months ago the Cascade Water  Power and Iyight company, which had  secured an option on the Boundary  Falls townsite, applied to Mr. Leonard  Norris, the water commissioner, for a  record of 1,500 inches of water at  Boundary Falls, and for the cancellation of a record of 1,500 inches held by  the Greenwood company. The case  was tried before Mr. Norris, Mr. A. S.  Black of Greenwood and Mr. Senkler  appearing for the Greenwood company and Mr. J. W. Nelson of Rossland for the Cascade company. After  hearing the evidence, Mr. Norris asked  for written arguments, which were  put in by both sides. Mr. Norris has  handed down his decision. It is to the  effect that he refuses to grant the  record asked for by the Cascade company, and also refuses to cancel the  record of the Greenwood company.  The decision secures the Greenwood  company in their record. They have  already expended about $4,000 in constructing a large dam above tlie falls',  and are now negotiating for the purchase of a power and lighting plant.  The question of securing electric  light for the city was suggested at the  last meeting of the city council, but  there appeared to be a difference of  opinion as to the best course. Alderman Phelan is in favor sf the city contracting for the necessary power and  taking charge of street and private  lights. While the company have a  franchise for stringing* poles and supplying electric light within the city, it  may be willing to sell the power. The  company intend to put in a sufficiently  large plant to generate sufficient power  for various purposes, such as furnishing power to mines, running electric  cars,   for   street   lights   and  lighting  buildings.  BOARD   OF   TRADE.  The   suggestion   of' Alderman   Gal  loway at the banquet, that the business  men of Greenwood should organize  themselves to promote the interests of  the city, was an excellent one. The  city has now grown to such proportions that it ought to be an easy matter  to form a: regular board of trade. Such  an organization will carry more weight  than a commercial association, although the commercial association did  good service when in existence.  To organize and maintain a live  board of trade, it is necessary that  every business man should appreciate  the necessity for such an institution,  and regularly attend the meeting's. A  half-dead, half-alive board of trade is  worst than useless.  The  Sunset.  Mr. J. H. Macfarlane, superintendent of the Sunset, is at present in  Montreal. After reaching Minneapolis  he found that Mr. Hogg* was unable to  meet him. Mr. Macfarlane writes that  Boundary creek is well spoken of in  Montreal, and a great deal of eastern  money will find its way into Boundary  creek next summer. It is the intention of the Sunset owners to purchase  a large plant to develop the property.  They expect to have the plant in posi  tion next spring. Mr. Macfarlane  will return bv the first of the year.  y   /   *  GREENWOOD  *�����   Si*  Workshop one door north  of Furniture Store,  Copper Street.

It will  be profusely illustrated  Xfy  photo' engravings, representing views of Greenwood.   Boundary  creek  and  different  mines.    The issue will  contain a comprehensive   report   of   the   Boundary  Creek  Milling-   district, prepared by J.  C. Haas, M. E}.    It is  scarcely  necessary   to  say   anything  regarding  the  value of this report other  than that it  has been written by Mr. Haas.    There  will   also   be   a   special   article by Mr.  Keffer, M. E}., manager of the  Mother  Ivode.    His  article  will  deal   particularly with the advantage and necessity  of having Boundary Creek ores smelted  on Boundary creek.    Mr. Guess, M. A.,  will also contribute   an interesting article. Greenwood and Greenwood business   houses   will   also   be   described.  The special number will be brimfull of  information   concerning   the   city and  district.    The issue is to be  limited to  2,000   copies.    The   price   will   be   25  cents.    Persons desiring copies should  leave their orders at   the  Times office,  or with Smith & McRae, H. A. King &  Co., or H. B. Munroe.  INCONSISTENT   VANCOUVERITES.  The Vancouver World is giving  fresh evidence of the fact that it has  no fixed principles. It advocates certain projects, not because they are  right, and denounces others, not because they are wrong. The World  cannot rise bej^ond the plane of pecuniary expediency. lyast winter it  denounced the application for the tin-  subsidized  Corbin   charter because   it  was an American  road,  which  would  tend to  divert  Canadian   trade ;   this  winter  it  is    strongly   advocating   a  subsidy for a line  of  steamers  to ply  between   Vancouver   and   San   Francisco, and says  nothing  about  the diversion of Canadian trade.    L/ast winter  the  irrepressible  J.   C.   McL/ag-an  used his influence as a member ��f  the  Vancouver board of trade to defeat the  Corbin charter; this winter he is using-  his influence to advocate an American  line of steamers and secure a Dominion  subsidy for the same.    The World and  Mr. Mcl/agan are not  the.only unfair,  inconsistent  residents  of  Vancouver.  Patriotism and sentiment are all right  when  they  only  retard   the   development of Boundary creek, bui all wrong  when they  interfere  with  the  expansion of Vancouver  trade.    Vancouver-  ites can   shout  loyalty   and  pander to  the C. P. JR.  at  the  same  time,   when  the interests  of Boundary  creek only  are at .stake, but  they   sing  to  a  different tune when  their  own interests  are   affected.      Boundary   creek   does  not ask the coast  for  any  favors, but  it does ask for fair play.  ANOTHER   JAIL-BIRD   ESCAPES.  ' Alexander Swanson pleaded guilty  on Saturday to entering W. T. Smith's  room and extracting $70 from his  pocketbook. He was sentenced to a  year's imprisonment by Police Magistrate Hallett. Sunday evening Mr.  Ivawder brought the prisoners their  food. He closed the door leading to  their cells, placing the heavy iron bar  across it. Swanson succeeded by the  use of a table knife, which was inserted between a badly shrunk door  and the jam, in lifting the bar. He  forced the door open, told the other  prisoners to remain where they were,  lowered the bar and was a free man.  Mr. I^awder returned shortly afterwards and the prisoners at once informed him regarding Swanson. He  and Officer Pearse rode, to the international boundary line, which was  patrolled all night, but no trace of  Swanson was found. Swanson answers  the description of the man wanted at  Kamloops for breaking- jail.  iaj:mBi uaxaiia  xfliaaexwxBBfi  THB    CANADIAN  Head Office    -   -   -    TORONTO.  Established 1807.

Survey Along West Fork.  Some few weeks ago Messrs. Thompson and Vincent gave notice that they  intended to apply for a provincial  charter to build a railway up the West  Fork of Kettle river. The C. P. R. is  evidently going to contest the ground  with them, for this week a C. P. R.  survey party left Greenwood to make  a careful survey of the route. The  section through which the railway is  to travel is rich in mineral. The route  is much easier than that surveyed for  the V., V. & E. railway, and it is quite  probable that the C. P. R. will endeavor to find a better route for a railway to Penticton. The surve}' party  is in charg-e of Mr. O'Dell.  Quarantine Matters.  Dr. Christie, Dominion veterinary  surgeon, was over to Cascade last  week to pass some stock for P. Burns  & Co. The department of agriculture,  appreciating the importance of the  district, has decided to keep a permanent officer at a fixed salary to look  after quarantine matters. The choice  of the department naturally fell upon  Dr. Christie, who has already proved  himself to be a competent and painstaking officer. Dr. Christie's jurisdiction includes all of Southern Yale.  ���: THE VERY BEST :���  WHITE     BREAD  GRAHAM     BREAD  wb'RY'E'BRBAD  For Sale at tlie HOME BAKERY,  Government Street    iff     GREENWOOD  Two dozen Rolls for 25 c.

George Mc-  Kague has removed the tin-shop to the  rear of his lot on Copper street, and is  erecting a two-story block at the front  for the Nelson Hardware company,  who intend to open a hardware store  here shortly, The Bennerman Bros'  store is about completed. The stone  foundation for the Flood and Naden  block is also about finished and the  frame will be erected in a few days.  Messrs. Berger & Bedard are building  an hotel on Copper street. They expect to have their building completed  in thirty days. John Keough has  awarded the contract for excavating  his Government street lots. He intends building in the spring, and also  ���on the lot adjoining the Barnard  property on Copper street. Several  small residences are also in the course  of erection, so that mill men and carpenters are having a busy time.  A Store at Summit Camp.  Rendell & Co have opened a branch  store in Summit camp. The store is  situated on the property known as  Rehdell's ranch. The railway contractors are employing several hundred men in the vicinity and these, with  the miners and prospectors in camp,  ^ensures a good business for the branch  store.  Mr. C. M. Shaw met with a painful  .accident last week. While driving  after night, a small tree which careless lumbermen left overhanging the  road, struck his shin, fracturing the  bone. Wood-cutters are altogether  too careless about leaving obstructions  on the highways, and a serious accident will be the result if the practice  continues.  THE   BANK   OF  Established in 1836.

Mr. Macleod left on Thursdey  for Grand Forks, where the chief  trouble arises. The service, needs a  shaking-up, and it is hoped that Mr.  Macleod's visit will bring about needed  reforms. He is considered one of the  best and most  experienced men in the  service.  The Sullivan Ranch.  The business men of Midway are  nothing if not patriotic to their thriving little town.

Mclyeod, purchased the Sullivan, ranch  adjoining the Midway townsite. The  principal object the syndicate had in  view was to protect the interests of  the town, as the Sullivan ranch is exceptionally situated for townsite purposes. The property includes about  300 acres of land and the. price paid  was in Die neighborhood of $12,000.  A. M.

Mr.  Wisner has let the contract to Mr.  Grey to build a 25-foot addition. Mr.  Grey had a gang of men hoisting* the  old building*, which will be moved to  the back of the lot, and the addition  will be built on to the front.  A gang of men are at work grading  Seymour street and a bridge is being-  built along* Fisherman creek, connecting* this street with the main bridge.

It  brings  contentment  to  the  conversationalist, who in turn blesses the Nelson and/ Vernon   Telephone   compan3^.  This week, at 2:47 in the afternoon, the  writer went   into the   local office of the  Telephone company and requested the.  affable   ag-ent  to  request  Rossland to  request Hon. T. Mayne   Daly   to come  to  the 'phone.    The   agent   attempted  to  do   so.    He   excused   the  delay in  reaching*  Rossland   by   imparting* the  information   that   Spokane  was using*  the line.    After several failures, Rossland \yas   at  last  secured.    One  hour  passed before  the   very  gratifying* information was heralded over the wires  that   Mr.   Daly   could   not   be   found.  The    very   obliging*    Rossland    office  voluntarily offered to   secure a mandamus compelling  Mr. Daly  to  come to  the telephone at  7:30 p. m.    By 9:30 p.  m. the   writer  became convinced that,  with  his  usual  legal   astuteness, Mr.  Daly had run a coach and four through  the mandamus, for his voice remained  silent as far as the   Greenwood end of  the   line   was  concerned.    Mac.   who,  like   every  other   canny    Scotchman,  wanted to  get  something  for himself  and the   company,   engulfed  his   unfortunate  victim   in   an   avalanche of  arguments in favor of  the contention  that Mr. Daly could  be  secured in the  morning.    We  foolishly  allowed  ourselves to  be convinced, and retired for  the  night satisfied   that  the  morrow  would bring the voice if not the person  of Mr. Daly.    At  10:30  next   morning  we reached the office and were told that  the wires were  down.    At  11  a  messenger came in hot haste to tell us that  the   wires   were   up.    The office was  reached   and  Spokane  was  using the  line.    Mac.   said  that  the  line   could  easily be secured during the noon hour,  because  everybody else would then be  at luncheon.    We missed our luncheon  only   to  find that everybody   else   included Mr. Daly.  About 2 30 o'clock, just as thoughts  were beginning to arrive for a leader  on municipal g-overnment, the kid  from the telephone office came rushing  in with the announcement that Mr.  Daly was at the 'phone. His words  drove away the thoughts and an attempt was at once made to lower the  half mile record. We fell into the  Government street cut, tumbled over a  pile of unlaid sidewalks on Copper  street, but succeeded in reaching* the  telephone in time to hear Rossland announce that collection was to be made  at the Greenwood end. This important information was gratefully accepted and we timidly requested Rossland to trot out Mr. Daly. Rossland,  after a few minutes' wait, found that  Mr. Daly had again disappeared, but  promised to hold the wire. Then the  fun   began.    Grand   Forks   asked  for  the wire with   an   arrogance   sufficient  for a town of 500 people.    The strident  voice at Cascade shook the instrument  in Green wood, indignantly ��� '.demanding'  why  the   wire  was  being held.    Spokane threatened to   send   a   U. S. regiment unless the wire was released/and  the timid creature who runs  the Rossland office retreating, leaving  us with  only the pleasant sensation of  having  our ear tickled by alow, rumbling along  the copper wire.   Bossburg, in a gentle  soothing voice, told  us   that  the   wire  was in use elsewhere.    Micawber like,  Ave waited  for  something*  to  turn up,  and   another  hour   passed by   and we  left the office, but not  before we heard  Mac.    assuring    an    indignant   bank  manager that he would not have long  to  wait, as   he   only   wanted Cascade  and Cascade was always prompt.  Preachers of the gospel who are in  doubt regarding the amount of religion  carried about by individual members  of their flocks, should run them up  against a long-distance telephone. If  they come through the ordeal without  compromising themselves, there is an  absolute certainty' that the evil one,;  has no control over them.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held on Monday evening  with Mayor Wood in the chair, and  Aldermen Galloway, Paton, Barrett  and Phalen present. Several letters  were received from men injured on the  streets and wanting* pay while unable  to work. The matter was referred to  Aid. Galloway and the city solicitor.  Communications relating to shipments of water pipe were received and  filed. The Boundary Creek Times  suggested the purchase of 500 copies of  the Christmas number and the council  unanimously decided to purchase that  number. The council also decided to  have printed the municipal voters' list  for 1899.  Aid. Barrett thought something  ought to be done to keep Copper street  clear of vehicles, and the chief of police  stated that he had already notified  owners that unused vehicles must be  kept off the street.  After some routine business the  council adjourned.  The Water Pipe.  One carload of water pipe reached  Marcus last week and the other this  week. Several loads have left Marcus  for Greenwood and ought to be here  any day. The freighters have raised  the rate from Marcus from \]A. to 2  cents. The higher rate went into  effect on the 15th. About eigiit loads  of pipe left Marcus before the two-cent  tariff went into effect.  Save Money by purchasing your Ticket direct  from Greenwood to points on the Coast or East.
