Vol, III.  greenwood; b,c��� Saturday, November 20, 1897,  63  5 No; 11,  ENDANGERING   THE   CREDIT.  FEW years ago the provincial government were  extremely fond of publicly stating that the action  of the Opposition in criticising the financial  policy of the government was endangering the  credit of the province in London. Admitting  this was so, the Opposition were justified in offering their criticisms with a view to securing provincial finances on a healthy basis. The same  government will now have .some difficulty in defending its  own course by which it has drawn hostile criticism from the  London ���Times-' and every reputable financial journal in  London. Being certain of defeat at the next provincial  ��� election, ���the members of the government are making the  most of their official positions in their own interests. Company after company has been organized in London with the  ostensible . object of developing mines in Kootenay and  Klondyke, but really to make money .for the promoters. Included among the promoters of these "companies are Premier  Turner, Hon. C. L. Pooley, and other members of the government. Onercompany, in its prospectus, points to the  fact that the Premier of the province is on the directorate  and they are therefore in a position to get inside information ! Premier Turner must have become exceedingly callous  if he will allow an English compan)* to sug-g-est that he will  violate his path of office in order that inside information,  may be given to a speculative company.  The London Times, referring to the prospectus of the  Dawson City & Dominion Trading Company, states :  We regret to observe the names of the Prime Minister and  the President of the Executive Council of British Columbia  on the company's advisory board. Men in their position  are establishing a bad precedent when they allow their  names to be connected with undertakings of this class, however sound they may be.  The Pall Mall Gazette quotes the Times and says that  " we entirely agree with this, but largely on the ground  that the company does not commend itself to our opinion."  The Westminster Gazette is stronger in its denunciation of  the provincial Minister, and in a scathing article speaks of  "Premiers and Promoters sinking from bad to worse."  Other English papers also strongly criticise the action of  the Ministers.  When the English money market gets the impression that  the members of the executive of the Province of British  Columbia are prostituting their offices for private gain, the  credit of the province will no longer be as high as it is at  present.  -?te  S8&  ���>,e  THE    CITY    COUNCIL.  The regular meeting of the city council was held on Monday evening last. His Worship, Mayor Wood, was in the  chair and the following aldermen were present : Aid. Rendell, Barrett, Phelan and Galloway.  A telegram from Hon. Col. Baker announced that the government had been pleased to appoint Mr. G. R. Naden. a  license and police commissioner and Mr. I. H. Hallett a  police magistrate. The telegram was ordered placed on  file.  The finance committee recommended that the following  bills be paid : B. C. Gazette, advertising, $5.00 ; B. C. Times  advertising and job work, $24.50 ; city clerk, salary, $50 ;  postage, $6.50; Smith & McRae, stationery, $1.80; R. F.  Coates, ballot box, $5.00 ; B. C. Milling & Lumber Co. lumber, $2.17; expenses mineral exhibit, $50. ; Board of Health,  $10.  The report of the finance committee was adopted and the  bills paid.  The council then went into committee to discuss the isolation of the bawdy houses. After threshing the matter out  for nearly two hours the council were no nearer a solution  of the difficulty arid the matter was postponed for a special  meeting on Tuesday.  Aid. Galloway requested leave to introduce a license,  road and dog tax by-law. Leave was granted and the bylaw was read a first and second time and a few clauses were  considered in committee. The schedule of license fees are  almost the same as those already adopted by the council.  The road tax is two dollars a year on every male resident of  the city between the age of 21 and 50 years. The dog tax is  two dollars a year on each dog in the city.  The council then discussed sariitarj'* matters. The opinion was freely expressed that the health of the town de-:  manded vigorous sanitary measures. The Board of, Health  was requested to notify all owners of stables within the  limits that they must keep them clean and also adjoining  yards.  The following letter from P. O. Inspector Fletcher addressed to the Mayor was then read :  Victoria, B.C., November 10th, 1897.  Dear Sir :��� The contractor for the conveyance of mails  between Grand Forks and Penticton states that owing to  the short days and bad roads during the winter season, he  is obliged to make early starts from the terminal points and  to travel late in the evening, much to the inconvenience of  the traveling public, and it has been suggested that a change  shall be made in the time of arrival and departure of the  mails at and from your office by which mails shall arrive  on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, about 5 p. m., and  leave at 8 a. m. oh Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for  Penticton. In consideration of this change, the coutractor  agrees to maintain a daily service between Grand Forks and  Greenwood, leaving Greenwood every morning and returning in the evening.  Will you please let me know whether the proposed change  would be satisfactory to the people of Greenwood.  Yours  truly,  L. FivETCHP^R, P. O. Inspector.  After a brief discussion the city clerk was instructed to  write to the postoffice inspector endorsing the change in the  service.  The council then adjourned.  '/te  CHANGE IN MAIL SERVICE.  Comriiencing this week a change was made in the time  of both stage lines. The Marcus stage arrives here daily  excepting Sunday, at 5 o'clock in the evening and departs  at 7 o'clock in the morning*. The Penticton stage arrives  on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 o'clock in the  evening and departs at 8 o'clock on the morning of Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The change was brought  about to avoid the dangerous night driving on both lines.  The Marcus stage remains over night at Hall's, reaching  Grand Forks about eleven o'clock next morning* when connection is made with Parker's stage for Greenwood. The  night travel on the Penticton stage is also avoided.  The change is satisfactory to the people of Greenwood  since it makes this city the terminus for both stage lines.  Passengers going either way stop here over night.  By next spring it is hoped that the government will appreciate the importance of this district and establish a daily  mail between Penticton and Marcus. We are sure that the  C. P. R. will give a dailjr service by steamer on Okanag-an  Lake.  ^^^ma^i^i^MMU^^m^ ^MtB^ssaKuasBS^MMBiSi  FBASER-SPENCER.  Rev. E. G. Walker, of Greenwood,  officiated at a very pleasing* ceremonj'-  at Grand Prairie on Tuesday afternoon, when Mr. John Kenneth Fraser  and Miss Thulia Spencer were united  in marriage. The ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride's  father. The bride was supported by  her sister, while Mr. Fraser's brother  was groomsman. Mr. and Mrs. Fraser  left on Wednesday for Spokane, where  the honeymoon will be spent.  Politicians  From the East.  This province is rapidly becoming-  the home of eastern men who have attained prominence in politics. Hon.  T. Mayne Daty, Ex-minister of the Interior is practising* law in Rossland ;  W.A. McDonald, Ex-leader of the opposition in Manitoba, is now a barrister  of Nelson ; Hon. Joseph Martin " Fig*ht-  ing* Joe" is a practicing barrister of  Vancouver ; Hon. Fred Peters of Prince  Edward Island, r a liberal, and Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper, Ex-minister  of Justice, an irrepressible conservative, have formed a partnership and  have hung* out their shingle in Victoria. Even Clark Wallace has interests  near Kamloops and may settle there.  The Jewel Re-opened.  Through the persistent effort of Mr.  J. W. Macfarlane of the Prospecting*  Syndicate of B.C., the Jewel mine of  Eongt I/ake is again giving employment to a... larg-e'number of men. It  -will be remembered that the Syndicate  failed to make satisfactory arrang*e-  ments with the owners and consequently .the���"mine was closed down. Negotiations were continued however with  the result that the Syndicate secured  tlie interests of Messrs. Bosshart,  Shonquist aud Mr. Garland, and it is  reported that of Mr. Dittmer also. As  soon as the arrang*emeiits were completed, Mr. Barker, the foreman, received instructions tore-open the mine.  A new pump has been purchased and  the mine will now be continuously  worked.      ���  _  Public Health and Public Morals.  A special meeting of the city council  was held on Tuesday afternoon, for  the purpose of discussing- matters re-e  lating* to public health and public morals. After considerable discussion the  police officer was instructed to put the  law in motion to rid Silver street of  certain undesirable characters.  Dr. Jakes was unanimously appointed medical health officer for the city,  and the council then adjourned.  F. Aug*uste Heinze is in some respects " the wizard of the north."  Eess than two weeks ago it was reported that he was seriously ill and had to  be taken bjr a special train from Trail  to his home in Butte. Now the report  reaches us that he is in Ottawa, button-  holeing* ministers and members for the  railway subsidy. Mr. Heinze evidently^ believes that it is good policy  when subsidy hunting- to g*o early and  thereby avoid the rush.  Rossland.  investment and ��� jw  Greenwood.

The Court of Revision for the Rock  Creek Division of Yale District was  held at Osoyoos on Thursday, Mr. F.  McGowen presiding*. Mr.5 McGowen  holds court at Midway to-day and at  Greenwood on Monday. <; ���' ,,-  Notice is given in the B. C. Gazette  that the Osoyoos Mining' Division of  Yale district has been created a Health  district under the provisions of the  Health Act, 1893. Mr. C. A. R. Iyaiiibly  has been appointed the Board of Health  for the district.  It is reported that 70 head of cattle  belonging to Mr. T. Ellis were seized  by the American Customs' officers last  week. The cattle were for the Rossland market but were being driven  through the reservation without a convoy-; hence the seizure.  Midway will also have a skating rink  this winter. The citizens have prepared a piece of land where water will be  turned on from the irrigation ditch.  Shares in the Greenwood rink were at  a discount this week, a warm chinook  having cleared away both snow and  ice, much to the disappointment of the  enthusiasts.  The rank of Sisterhood has been conferred on F. H. McCarter, of the Grand  Forks Miner by the I^adies Aid Society  of Grand Forks. Since the Miner  secured a patent outside "Mac " has  become rather effeminate. That "patent" must have broken his heart, for  he has lost his old time ag-gressiveness  but we never thought he would join a  Iyadies' Aid Society.  In order to accommodate those who  are anxious to send mail by the early  morning* stage to Grand Forks, Mr.  Parker the proprietor of the stage line  has placed letter boxes in all the hotel  offices in the cit}'. Before leaving* in  the morning the letters in these boxes  are collected, and mailed by the driver  at Grand Forks. This will be a great  convenience to those who wish to  promptly reply to letters received each  evening'.       . ���-  Hotel Arrivals.  arrivals at  the  during  viin,   Rossland ;   C.

W. Nelson has acquired full  control of the Pioneer hotel. This  popular establishment will be improved to meet the demands of an increasing patronage.  At the request of the citizensof Rossland Hon. Mr. Siftpn has promised to  bring the government's attention to  Mr. Justice Walkem's action in chaug*-  ing the Costello sentence.  Mr; Justice ���McCre'ight intends to  retire from the bench shortly. Mr. D.  G. McDonnell, of Vancouver, and Mr.  P. JS). Irving, of Victoria, are mentioned as candidates for the position.  ��� The Fairview Gold Mining Co., Iytd.,  has been reg-istered to do business in  this province. The head office of this  company is in London arid the office in  this province is at Vancouver. The  capital is ,��100,000 divided into one  pound shares.  lyieutenant-Governor Mcintosh of the '  Northwest Territories'has tendered his  resignation. He will reside in Rossland where he has large mining interests. It is also stated that he has decided to return to journalism and will  edit the Rossland Miner. ,  Sewerage  Systems.  The cities of Kootenay are having  trouble in the efforts to secure proper  sewerage systems. The cities are anxious" to provide sewerage systems but  the provincial Board of Health have  decided that sewerage shall not go into the rivers. The only outlet for sewerage in Rossland is Trail creek ; in  Nelson, Kootenay river ; but the provincial Board of Health have tabooed  the use of these streams. As Greenwood will shortly be in a similar position to the cities mentioned, we are  anxious for the provincial Board of  Health to suggest some other means of  getting* rid of the sewerag*e.

It has failed to  carrjr out the recommendations of the  council; nevertheless . the appointments give general satisfaction. Mr.  I. H. Hallett, the newly-appointed  Police Magistrate, will bring* to the  office an experience gained while successfully occupying a similar position  in the city of Vancouver. Mr. G. R.  Naden, the other Commissioner, is also  sure to exercise good judgment in dealing with all matters coming before  them. The board will probably hold  its first meeting on December 8th,  when applications for licenses for five  hotels will be considered.  Mr. Woodhouse's Speech.  Mr. Woodhouse's address to the members of the   Recordia   Syndicate, a report of which  appeared in  The Times  last week, has been the subject of much  discussion  in  Greenwood.    There  are  grave doubts in the minds of many  as  to whether Mr. Woodhouse was justified in making the   statements he did to  English   capitalists   who   are seeking  safe  investments for their  money.    It  is one  thing  for   an   expert  to secure  control of properties,  and an indefinite  option is another.    It is  of course difficult at this distance to positively state  how much Mr. Woodhouse did tell  the  Recordia  Syndicate.    If  he  told them  that  he  secured  control  of townsites,  smelter sites, coal lands, etc.,   etc.,   as  the report of his speech would indicate,  he   told   them   something   which   the  arrangements   he   has    made   did not  justify.    It  is possible that the abbreviated report of his speech does not  do  Mr. Woodhouse justice.    He may have  stated   that   he  has  secured a   conditional option   on   the   water   power   at  Boundary Falls   and  several   hundred  acres of land  there,   also  certain   coal  lands and other properties.    These conditions imply the speedy construction of  smelters and other works which will  entail the expenditure of large sums of  nioney.  We do not wish to belittle  what Mr.  Woodhouse has done in the district; he  is  probably   honest   in   his  intentions  but   surely   it is  not in the interest of  the district  for a  mining  engineer  to  come here and make  arrangements to  purchase  everything excepting: the air  -���arrangements which   do  not impose  any cash payments   and   which   inflict  no penalty if not carried out, and then  go back  and enthuse unsophisticated  Englishmen with assertions that  they  were able to obtain  interests  of great  extent and value, comprising townsites  thousands   of   acres   of   land,     water  rights, and thousands   of acres of  coal  lands,   and   that   they had   secured 100  acres  for a smelter site ; that in  addition to this they had secured 900  acres  for   certain   with   the   probability  of  another 1000 acres around the   smelter  site, etc., etc.  We can congratulate Mr. Woodhouse  on securing the Anaconda Group.  Development work has fully justified  the bond given on this property and  from all indications it is sure to yield  handsome returns. .  JOHN   A.

The committee who   had   charge of the concert  were   agreeably   disappointed.    IOarl}'  in the day, Mr. Georg*e A. Guess, chairman of the committee,   was firm in the  conviction   that   there were  plent3'- of  seats in   the hall  for those who would  attend.    It was   found   however   that  chairs   had   to  be borrowed from   the  Pioneer  hotel   and  elsewhere  to  seat  those who crowded into the hall.  Several improvements were made in  the hall for the concert.    A neat stage  was erected and tastily Curtained.    The  committee   in   charge   of the concert,  Messrs. Georg-e A.  Guess, J. W. Frost,  G. F. Miller and J. C. Goupil, secured  an excellent programme, printed copies  of which were  distributed  in the audi-  ence.    The services of a chairman were  dispensed with.

The    three  Jacks were J. Harlan, J. Goupil and J.  Xeamy, while the Queen was  built  on  magnificent r lines.    Standing six  feet  two inches and  being broad in proportion, she  made  an imposing* fig*ure on  the stage.    It was   rumored   that   the  Queen  was   none   other   than   Frank  Chadler.    J. C. Goupil  made  an ideal'  colored  servant,   J.   JL/eamy  a  spoiled  boy who  always wanted candy,  while  J.

Accompanied by  her   father   on   the org-an,   her sweet,  childish  voice   was   heard   in two   or  three popular songs and each time she  was     enthusiastically     encored.

At a non-political gathering held in  New Westminster recently, Sir Charles  Tupper stated that during the last session of the Dominion parliament he  had spoken against the construction of  railways by <. the government but he  was now quite prepared to take back  every  word   he had uttered if the.gov-  t' ���'.'.'���"���' ������ ���  eminent would undertake the construction of an all-Canadian road by the  way of Telegraph Creek to Klondyke.  All of which goes to'show that the personal interest is stronger than patriotism, lyast winter Sir Charles had ho  personal interest in this country and  he discussed the railway question solely from the standpoint of a patriotic  citizen striving; to do his duty. Today, he is heavily interested in one or  more companies who are anxious to exploit the riches of the Yukon, and even  Sir Charles is willing* to appear inconsistent in order that a railway may be  built into the Yukon.  There are a good many Sir Charleses  in the Dominion house. The most enthusiastic supporters of anything that  ���will assist in the development of the  resources of this province are members  who have secured personal interests  here and who have made themselves  acquainted with the possibilities of the  province. The most stubborn opponents of British Columbia appropriations are eastern members who have  never visited the province, who have  no interests here and who are ignorant  of its resources. It is quite probable  that if Sir Charles had obtained interests in Boundary Creek he would be  just as willing to sink his antagonism  to government railways in order that  transportation might be furnished to  his own property.  Rural   Liquor   License.  The rural Board of Iyicense Commis-  .sioners will consider the following applications for liquor licenses at their  next meeting to be held at Midway on  December 15th : St. I^ouis Hotel, Camp  McKinney, F. Donald ; Queen's Hotel,  Upper Grand Forks, Messrs. Dufour &  Cusson ; Canada Hotel, Upper Grand  Forks, Toussaint Phaneouf ; Christina  Hotel, east side of Christina I^ake, Fli  Ivavalley ; Mountain House, west of  Rock Creek, W. H. Conkle.  Dismissed   the   Case.  W. Cor mack and partner appeared  before Magistrates Hind and Norris at  Midway this week to answer to a  charge of attempting, to shoot two boys  near Boundary Falls. The charge was  dismissed as there was no evidence to  prove who did the shooting. Mr. J. P.  Mcl^eod appeared for the defense. It  appears that the boys while out shooting accidentally wounded McCormack's  dog and a few days afterwards they  were themselves the target for some  person's g*un. It was presumed that  McCormack and partner were attempting to frighten the boys for shooting  the dog.

Through the courtesy of Mr. Leonard Norris, Collector of Votes for Bast  Yale, we are in a position to furnish  the readers of the Times with accurate  figures concerning* the voters' list for  this district. While these fig-tires are  in a measure gratifying*, we are certain  there are many who are duly qualified  who have neglected to register.  The register of votes for Bast Yale  contains a total of 1276 names. These  are the names which were placed on  the list at the Court of Revision held in  August. Since then 320 applications  have been posted on, the wall at the government office, making a total of 1596  registered votes and applications. Of  the 320 applications 287 came from  south of Penticton and 33 from north  of Penticton.  It is gratifying to learn that 287 applications have been made from south  of Penticton since August but the electors should never rest satisfied until  the 800 or more voters living south of  Penticton are placed on the list. It  only requires a united effort from every  locality. We have been informed since  discussing* this matter in last week's  Times that over 100 names were sent  to the collector of votes from the vicinity of Fairview. Other towns . and  camps should make an effort to record  every .vote.  There should be 800 names on the  voters' list from south of Penticton  when the legislature meets. That  number will surely force the government into giving- the district proper representation. Do you want the district  subdivided? If you do registerTyour  vote and your neighbor's.  What Mr. Woodhouse Stated.  Since commenting on Mr. Wood-  house's speech we have read another  report of the meeting of the Recordia  Syndicate which differs materially  from that published in the British  Columbia Review. The second report  is more compatible with the truth. Mr.  Woodhouse did not say that he secured  the interests described but had obtained " various interests in options with  very small commitments of capital."  Such is the fact; Mr. Woodhouse has  secured options on properties which are  sure to yield large returns when developed but as far as we know, he has not  as the Review's report would indicate,  purchased anything.  Capt.  Shorts Alive.  Mayor Wood was naturally startled  this week when he received a letter  from Capt. T. D. Shorts. Capt. Shorts  will be remembered by many people in  the district. He built and ran the first  steamer on Okanag-an L,ake and left  some years ago for Alaska. It was  reported that he died there of mountain fever ; but Capt. T. D. Shorts is  very much alive. He hasn't reached  Klondyke yet and is now at Juneau,  having returned from mining at Cook's  Inlet.  H'4p *4�� 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4? 4* 4,i?  <*����     G: B.

There is now a good road from  Greenwood to the B. G. mines. The  road was built under exceptional difficulties, but the enterprise of the citizens of Greenwood overcame every  obstacle and they now have the satisfaction of knowing* that one of the  most promising* camps in the district  is in direct communication with Greenwood.  Mr. Chas. Rendell  who  had  charg*e  of the work of completing the last mile,  had a number of" men at work and succeeded in completing*  the  road   before  the snow became too deep.  ' While we can congratulate  the   citizens of Greenwood on  the  completion  of  the  road,   we   think  that were the  government not so callous it should be  heartily ashamed of its   action   in this  matter.    The     Chief      Commissioner  promised first $1,200,   then  $600; and  $500 was all the government gave to  a  public  road   which   cost   upwards   of  $1,500.

Death of Mrs. Spinks.  The maii3r friends of His Honor,  Judg-e Spinks, will sympathize with  him on the death of his wife which  took place at Kamloops last week.  Mrs. Spinks was a native of Lancashire, England, and canle to this province with her husband about 12 years  xig*o. They settled in Kamloops where  Mr. Spinks practiced law before being-  appointed county court judg*e. He  afterwards removed to Vernon on account of Mrs. Spinks' health. She was  a great sufferer from rheumatic fever  which was the cause of her death.  J. J. Franklin, Rossland, was among*  the visitors to Greenwood this week.  Mr. Franklin is an eastern capitalist  Avho has invested heavily in real estate  and mines in Kootena}'. He expressed  himself as being pleased with Greenwood ; it appeared to be the most flourishing* of all the towns he had visited.  Mr. Franklin returned by Tuesday's  stage, but he has decided to come back  here and invest in Greenwood.  ���-������<��^��-<��o-��-��oc��-< �������>-������<���)��� ��>-��>-a^e^��-4��>-��^��K��<����-��^��^��-������>-��-(eK��^��K��-<OMi^��i  V��-4��t>��-4a��-��4����-*-4����-a-<IO����94*��>*-4��*��-4��T  _ ���  . vf    Winchester,   Marliri  and  Savage  Rifles.
