Vol L  GREENWOOD CITY, B,G, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1896,  No, 11,  ALL   THE   WANTS   OF   MAN  From a Needle to an Anchor," in Conveniently Arranged  Premises,  in the  Hands   of   Enterprising  Proprietors and Energetic and Courteous Assistants.  Until the spring* of 1894 the district from F air view, B.C.,  on the one side, to Marcus (Wash.) on the other, could not  boast of any general store, however primitive. It was  in that year that Mr. G. Arthur Rendell started in business  on a small scale at Boundary Falls, and is therefore entitled  to the honorable distinction of being ranked as the pioneer  store-keeper of Boundary Creek. The difficulties that beset  such an enterprise in those early days���it is little more than  two years ago���were enough to discourage any man not endowed with more than the average possession of patience  and pluck. The country was then very sparsely populated  and was represented by a few prospectors and a still fewer  number of ranchers.    Boundary Falls  was  then  the  prin-  for the convenience of the travelling public, and a ferry had  to be called into requisition. The river was at flood, running like a mill race, and a very enjoyable and exciting  time Was spent in conveying the goods across. At last the  caravan arrived at Boundary Falls, a little the worse for  wear and tear, which nevertheless did not affect the sales.  Shortly afterwards, in November, 1894, a fairly egood stage  road from Penticton to Grand Forks was constructed, and  the pack train is now almost a thing of the past,���a reminiscence of the good old times -when the bucking cayuse  saved the grocer the labor of mixing sand and sugar in  scientific proportions.  In the fall of last year Mr. Wood built the log warehouse  now forming the rear part of Rendell & Co.'s store and used  as a tin shop,���and here, courageously assisted by Mrs.  Wood, he sold tea and flour all day, living at the same time  in the roughest manner imaginable in a small room partitioned ofF behind.    The main building was completed the  ' /,  THE    PIONEER    AERCHANTS    OF    EOUNDARY    CREEK.  cipal stopping place, and until Mr. Rendell opened his store  supplies were ordered and generally packed in on  the  back  of cayuses  from  Marcus.    Mr.   Rendell  received  his  first  shipment of goods   via  Penticton.    People may   " growl "  now at the delay's and trouble of getting in supplies, but the  present conditions are wonderfully   convenient  when   compared with the history of that  first  consignment.    It  happened just at the time  when   the   Okanagan  river  took   it  into its head to change its bed, and consequently the  goods  had to be kept at Penticton until a ferry boat was  built���^a  matter of a month.    Then, as the road through   Camp  McKinney was not completed, the unlucky shipment had to be  piloted around by Osoyoos, through the Colville reservation  to the mouth of Rock creek, a charge of $15 being   made  on  every wagon for the honor of enjoying the escort of the U.S.  customs officer while passing through   the   territory   of the  Great Republic.    Arriving   at" Ingram's,"   it  was   found  that the bridge had gone out, without the  slightest  regard  early part of this summer, and in March Mr. Rendell and  Mr. Smailes entered into partnership arrangements with  the original proprietors, since which time the business has  been carried oh under the style of Rendell & Go.  Rendell & Company's building in Greenwood City is 45  feet long by 32 wide, or including the warehouse behind 75  feet long. As can be seen in our illustration it is a two  store}' building, the second floor of which is used as a hall  wherein social entertainments and public meetings are, as  a rule held. The firm also carry on the branch store at  Boundary Falls. Considering the undeveloped condition of  the country their store at Greenwood speaks volumes of the  faith and enterprise of the firm���though their convictions  are shared by every man in the camp. Almost every  article likely to be required by customers here is kept in  stock, from "a needle to an anchor," from feminine garments wouderful and incomprehensible to the gaze of man  to overalls of most uncompromising  toughness of material.  MM^wi^ii^ THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES,  MINING NOTES.  Work is still being* continued on the  Sail Bernard, the shaft being* now down  somewhere in the neighborhood of 70  feet.' ���-.  T. Walsh went up oh Monday to do  assessment work oh the Black Hawk,  on Hardy creek. This claim has a big-  showing* of mag-netic iron outcropping*.  The shaft house on the Old Ironsides  has been completed and the whim set  in position. Sinking* will commence  upon the arrival of a cable which is en  route. :.;". , ������;'i: ..  Two shafts have been commenced on  the.Tip Top, and another on the Sylvester K., in Greenwood camp. Both  claims have g*ood showing's of pyritic  copper and iron ore.  The second assessment is being* done  on the Silent Friend, Ivong* Iyake camp.  Samples of ore from this claim have  assayed as hig*h as $180. The shaft is  now down about 12 feet.  The work recently done on the Stin-  nysides has greatly enhanced the value  of the claim. A few hundred dollars  judiciously expended would doubtless  prove it a valuable property.  Messrs. Gordon and Miller returned  this week from prospecting* up the  West Fork of Kettle river, where they  located one claim some 30 miles to the  north of Rock creek. They intend to  return to the same locality next spring*.  Some g*ood, ore .was broug*ht down  this week from the Oak Iveaf, in Wel-  ling*ton camp, upon which assessment  work is now being* done. The ore was  taken from, a depth of four feet and assayed $19 in g*old.  Ore from the Anaconda, broug-ht  down by F. A. Bielenburg* last week,  has been assayed, g-iving* $29.43 for all  values : $15.07 gold, 2 9-10 ozs. silver,  and 5.76 per cent, copper. The best  returns heretofore only slig*htly exceeded $10 for all values. ?  Work has been temporarily suspended on the Rambler while the .winter's  supplies are being- laid in���a matter of  some difficulty owing* to the poorness  of the trail leading* to Pass creek,  which makes the carrying* up of provisions a slow and tedious process.  Mr. T.Brady* the well-known mining* engineer, arrived in camp on last  Saturday's stag*e, to report on the Sunset in Deadwood camp, and to make  arrang-ements for the development of  the claim providing* he is satisfied that  the indications are favorable. Mr..  Brady's client has already deposited  the money ($16,000) for the bonding* of  the property.

Below zero,-was the experience here  on Friday morning.  When two weddings can be announced in one week���next Sunday and  Thursday���it speaks volumes for the  progress of the community.  Dr. Jakes wishes to express his very  sincere thanks to those whoso readily  and ably rendered assistance in extinguishing the fire at the hospital.  Miss Thornber is energetically solicit-  in g subscriptions witli the laudable intention of assisting Santa Claus to  furnish aXmas tree for the youngsters  on that festive holiday.  Mr. J. Mcl^aren, gaoler of the Kamloops penitentiary, has been spending  his vacation with relatives at Carson,  returning to Kamloops on Thursday in  charge of the prisoner Rogers.  Tenders have been called for the construction of a 16-foot bridge across the  creek, to connect Anaconda with the  Deadwood and Copper camp trails.  Another bridge near the saw-mill would  hot only considerably shorten the distance between Greenwood and Anaconda, but a very much better road than  the present one could be opened.  Five acres of land have been set apart  by Mr. Wood for use as a cemetery.  * The location is in every way suitable���  a gently rising slope about a mile north  of town and close to the main road. To  avoid the possibility of bigoted disputes as to proprietary, rights, consecration and otherwise, the title will be  vested in a board of management, in  trust, until such time as a municipality  is formed.  Mr. W. J��t. Medill and sons leave this  week for Nanaimo, having finished the  season's work in1 Greenwood. Mr. Medill has shown his faith in this town  by purchasing lots on Copper street,  adjoining Mr. Paton's furniture store,  where he has put up0a temporary structure ; he has also bought land near the  dam as business premises, and north  of town for sand pits. He will return  in the spring with his family to reside  permanently.  Some two months ago Mr. T. Miller,  who was then on his way home to New  Zealand, decided to break the journey  and pay a visit to an old-time friend  and fellow-countryman, Mr. Gallowa}7-,  now of Greenwood. After spending  several weeks in this vicinity and well  considering the future prospects of the  town, Mr. Miller has decided to remain  here permanently and this week purchased lots on Boundary creek, immediately north of the upper bridge. He  intends to realize on his property in  New Zealand���the fruits of 32 years  residence in that distant colony���and  will'in the early spring erect a residence here and bring out his son and  daughter who are now in Scotland.  Between the hours of one and two on  Thursda3r' morning the Greenwood hospital was discovered to be on fire by  Dr. Jakes. The alarm was at once  given, but before a volunteer fire brigade could arrive on the scene, flames  were seen issuing from the roof of the  building. Fortunately the air was  very still, and this, together with the  praiseworthy exertions of the volunteers, alone saved the building from  total destruction. The damage to the  roof and walls is estimated at $1,000,  and furniture was destroyed to the  value of $500.    The origin of  the con  flagration is not known but it is attributed to a spark from a fire that had  been left burning in the grate of one  of the rooms on the second floor. Mr.  Hart, the contractor, proceeded on the  following day to repair the damage.  It is the intention of the Midway  Townsite Company to expend a sum of  $10,000 in improvements next spring.  Arrangements are. also being made  with a wealthy Milwaukee syndicate  for the installation of smelting* works  near the town.  Iii a deserted cabin on Boundary  creek a number of magazines were  found dated 1864, in all probability a  relic of the placer mining excitement  of 30 years ago.        ^  Mr. Angus K.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 18%:' <  TOPICS FOR THE WBEK.     ;  We have scriptural assurance���as  particularised in the story of the tireless widow who at length worried the  judg-e into doing what she wanted of  him��� of the efficacy of" persistency.  Yet, goodness knows, the frequent  prayers that have offered to the Gov-,  ernment for aid to build roads, or even  passable trails to the mining camps of  this district make, even though we are  approaching that joyous season when  " chestnuts " are considered an appropriate delicacy, further allusion to the  subject a matter of hesitation. However, like the artless innocent in the  a.dvertisement  crying  for  soap   " We  won't be happy till we get  it,?'���a  de-  & ������'������'  cent appropriation from the Government wherewith to build into every  noteworthy camp a respectable main  wagon road.  Some   of  the   most  promising prospects in  Boundary  were  located  this  year on Pass creek, and it is imperative  that access  should   be   given   to   this  lacality.    Messrs. Rendell &  Co.   took  it    upon    themselves    to     build    and  cut a trail to Pass creek, but naturally  enough it resembles another  and perhaps less trodden path insomuch as   it  is " a rough and narrow  way."    More-  over-every time it is travelled the trail  has to be more or less cleared of fallen  timber.    It is   all  very   well   and,   no  doubt, very  commendable on the  part  of private individuals to play   the  role  of public benefactors, but when   all  is  said and done, it is a lamentable  state  of Denmark that the  necessity   should  arise.    The Government it is true  has  done a good deal for us,   but  considering   the  potential  mineral   wealth  of  the district the judiousness of spending  money in road-making thus hastening  development   might    appeal to a   less  thick-headed body.    " Nagging " as   a  means to attain your end is  not   infrequently wearying to   the   flesh   of  all  concerned ; it   is  none   the  less  often  extremely effective.  It is not so irrelevant as may appear  to suggest the advisability of political  ly splitting the province in, two.    Why  should the Interior���from   whence the  bulk of  the revenue,   if  it   is  not   already, will be derived���be taxed for the  purpose of, for instance, " making Victoria attractive to tourists ? "    It is the  mines    of  Kootenay   that  are  giving  the name of British Columbia a familiar sound on Wall  Street  and  on  the  Iyondon   Stock   Bxchang*e.    It  is   the  mines of Kootenay and Yale  that  will  quadruple the  population   of   the   province in less than a few years ; and   to  bring this about the Government should  give the mining* districts every possible  assistance and   the   mining   industry  every   encouragement.      But   it    can  hardly be said that it fairly   does.    Instead the mining industry is very much  hampered   with   heavy   taxation.    No  man can go and work  in   a   mine' (except, it is a coal mine, save the mark!) [  unless he pays five dollars to the  Government for /the privilege.    The   smelter returns are taxed ; a prospector has  to pay for  his  " certificate  of  work,"  his" certificate of ��� improvements,"   his  poll tax, and heaven only knows   what  else.    But the miner takes his taxes as  he takes his whiskey, without  making  any faces;    still  he not unreasonably  asks " If I have to pay the Government  to be allowed to work in a mine,   or  to  stake out a piece of ground with a copper stain on the surface, why should  I  be obliged to employ my   time   cutting  out trails ? "    I^et Kootenay and  Yale  have their own  government  with   the  capital at   (say)   Nelson/or /?Rossland ;  fill the benches with practical  mining  men. and overlook the lawyers and you  will see the country a second Johannesburg in less than two years   time, with  more legitimate grounds for an excitement than ever South Africa could lay  claim to.

Water is being supplied to the Anaconda Hotel from lyind creek.  A large furnace is being placed in  the basement of the Palace hotel to  heat the building with hot air.  Miss Hickey and  her  step-sister   arrived at  Anaconda  on  Tuesday  from  Rockford, Wash., add  have  taken  up  their residence in the building  formerly occupied by Mr. McDowell.      ,'���','  A pair of magnificent Cariboo heads  , and also, a goat head, stuffed and setup by Mr. Scott McRae, were purchased by Col. Weir at the time of his last  visit, and are to be shipped this week  to New York where they will be placed  in the office of the palatial Waldorf ���>  Hotel. The animals were , shot last  spring by Mr. McRae on the North  Fork of Kettle river.   c  Five men are now working* on the  No. 7 trail tinder Mr. Hind's superintendence. The work will probably be  completed by next Tuesday.- The slope  which is very steep from the creek to  the No. 7 will be given a wagon-road  grade, and other improvements not at  first contemplated are to be done to the  road. It is estimated that by the new  trail the distance from Anaconda to  No. 7 camp will be five miles, and to  Central camp about six miles.  A series of entertainments will be  given-.this winter by the "Boundary  Creek Entertainers " to create a fund  for the purpose of purchasing instruments for a brass band. The club has;  at present fifteen members from different parts ot.' the district, including  Greenwood, Anaconda and Boundary  Falls. At a meeting* the other day  ���Mr. Miller, of Anaconda, was appointed chairman-; Mr. Wilbur,; secretary ;  and Mr. I^aw"., treasurer; who will act  with Messrs. H. Wright, J. H. Mitchell,  R. N. Taylor, and Sansom as a committee of general management,  first entertainment���a minstrel  followed by a dance��� will .take  on New Year's eve.  On the 14th inst.    a   society,   henceforward to be known as the  Anaconda  Commercial Club, was organized  with  a membership of twenty-one.'    Mr.   T.  Hardy was elected the  first  president  and treasurer;   Mr. *L,aw,   vice-president;   and  Mr.   Miller,   secretary.    A  committee as follows was then appointed to draft a constitution and by-laws :  Messrs.    Hind,   lyawder,    Hard3r    and  Law.    After making arrangements for  the construction of the trail to White's  camp   the   meeting"   adjourned     until  Tuesday of this week.    The objects  of  the organization as set forth in the constitution are " the  furtherance  of  the  commercial and social intersts, and for  the   advancement   of   all   enterprises  having for their object  the  benefit  of  the town and vicinity."   In addition to  the ordinary duties  of  secretary,   Mr.  Miller has pledged   himself to  correspond weekly   with   the   leading  newspapers of Canada and the States   with  special   reference   to   mining  development on Boundary creek.

The deceased had  been ill from Brig-ht's disease for some  time, and for several weeks previous  to his death had been under Dr. Jakes'  treatment. Up to Frida)' last hopes  were entertained of his recovery, but  alarming* symptoms suddenly developed in the afternoon and the patient  gradually grew worse until five o'clock  when the end came.  As far as can be ascertained, the deceased had no relatives in this country  but a letter was  found   in  his   pocket  from   a  brother  living"  in   Chester-le-  street, iDngland, who has been communicated with,    George  Taylor  was  28  years of ag-e and came to British  Columbia some five years ago.   Soon after  his arrival he settled on a pre-emption  near White lake, but moved last  summer on to a  piece  of  land  on   Myers'  creek.    Personally he was  of, a  quiet  disposition,     though     making    many  friends, and when his illness first took  a serious turn   acquaintances   in  Midway generously subscribed a sum sufficient for his removal to  the  hospital,  where   he  might receive  proper  care  and nursing.    The funeral, which took  place on Sunday, was largely attended,  people from Midway, .Boundary   Falls  and Anaconda being* present at the impressive service  held  at  the  hospital  by the  Rev.   Mr!   Irwin   (of  Midway),  and following  the  funeral  corteg;e  to  the cemetery.    The following acted^as  pall-bearers : Messrs.   Robt. Wood,   R.  Smailes, R. N, Taylor,   T.   Hardy,   T.  McAuley and J. McNicol.  A   POPULAR   APPOINTMENT.  We have  to  congratulate  ourselves  and Mr. McMynu on his   appointment  to two offices, viz.,   Registrar   of  the  County Court  at  Midway   and  representative of the local Board of Health.  The first of these appointments at any  rate was very necessary and will save  the public an infinite amount of trouble  and delay ; the second   is  equally  important.   Mr. McMynn, in his capacity  as board of health officer,  has  already  taken  steps  to   establish   a   sanitary  state of affairs in the towns of the district.     Until visited  by   the  sanitary  inspector, Rossland was in a deplorably  unsanitary condition, and much of the  sickness in that place during the early  part of the year and also last  summer  was due to this fact  tions under i  rigidly   enforced   in   Boundary'   before  the towns   assume   the   proportions of  cities, is a matter for congratulation.

WILL CONSTRUCT TO BOUNDARY.  Charters were obtained last winter  by the Spokane and Columbia Telephone and Telegraph Company, both  from the Dominion government and  from the Washing-ton state legislature,  giving* the necessary rig-hts for the  construction arid operation of a telephone and telegraph line from Spokane  to Rossland and from Rossland to  Trail arid to other mining* centres of  southern British Columbia. It was  proposed to stretch the lines as follows :  Spokane to Marcus, 101 miles ; Marcus  to Northport, 28 miles; Northport to  Rossland, 16 miles ; Rossland to Trail,  7 miles; Grand Forks to Midway, 28  miles ; Midway to Camp McKinney, 32  " .miles. -       ' . "V;. '<���  During* the past  year  the  Company  have been unable to  effectually  carry  out their plans owing"   to  insufficiency  of capital, but   this  drawback  can  no  longer.interfere--'.with'  the  consummation of the project, a Mr.   Mclvaug*hlin  of Toronto, having* acquired a control-  i ling-     interest   in   the   company    and  established it   on   a   sound   financial  basis.    The greater  part of the  line  from Marcus to Spokane is  completed,  and,construction has been  commenced  on    the. line   between   Rossland   and  Trail.    The lines into the Kettle'  river  and Boundary creek districts will probably not be  built   until   next   spring.  The company has  been  re-organized,  with   Mr.   Mclaughlin   as   president,  with a capital of $125,000.  GULLIBILITY OF EASTERN INVESTORS.  While in Montreal Mr. A. K. Stuart  was introduced" to the brokers who were  entrusted with the sale of the Coolgar-  die Mi/Urig Compan3r's stock. These  gentienlen informed him that the now  notorious McCullock had cleverly succeeded in "pulling the leg " of several  prominent brokers there, making quite  a tidy sum by giving them options on  blocks of stock. As an instance of the  gullibility of the small investor in so-  called mining stock, Mr. Stuart said  that a firm of Montreal brokers had  actually succeeded in floating a company arid were selling stock although,  the while not owning even a prospect.  When they had sold sufficient stock  they intended to buy a property, they  said. Their prospectus, of course, contained a glowing account of the richness of the British Columbia mines,  and repeated allusions were made to  the LeRoi, War l��agle, etc., etc. At  any rate the bait was greedily swallowed. If there is no law to put a stop  to.this sort of thing, there should be.  A   GOOD   INVESTMENT.  An object lesson in prospect values  was afforded the other day in the sale  of the G-rev-hound, Deadwood camp.  The claim was first staked some four  yrears ago by Scott McRae who, after  representing it for two years, abandoned it. It was then re-staked by K.  P. Suydam, who sold it for $100; to W.  J. Harris and F. Watson last spring.  These latter recently received $10,000  for the property, the purchaser being  a Mr. Anstey. Since Mr. McRae did  his assessments the Greyhound has  really not appreciated in value on its  own merits ; this is simply a happy indication of the estimation in which  Boundary Creek is now held from the  point of view of the "outside" investor  J. Kerr.  R. D. Kerr.  BUTCHERS  GREENWOOD, GRAND PORKS, & MIDWAY.  �� Meat delivered at Rock Creek and .all Mining- Camps.

The tunnel is now in over 90 feet on  the Mother Lcode, 50 feet in ore.  The result of development now under  way on the S. H. B., a property of the  Boundary'Creek M. &. M. Co., is proving* most satisfactory to the mariage-  ment. ? ���  Arrangements are being* made by  Mr. Campbell, of Vancouver, for the  bonding* of the Brooklyn, in Greenwood camp. Mr. T. Birady visited the  property, on Wednesday to make a report for his principals!.  ?  A contract has been let for 300 feet  of work on a group of claims owned b3r  a Spokane company in Wolf's camp,  Curlew lake. On one of the properties  where a shaft was sunk, the ore increased in value from $3 to $16.  The so-called " Prospector's Handy  Smelter " with'which Mr. W. W. Gibbs  has recently been experimenting on  the Snowshoe, is after all likely to  prove workable. The trial was made  under most disadvantageous conditions  and could hardly be considered in the  light of a fair test. Mr. Gibbs is satisfied that the smelter is quite -what  the manufacturers represented it to be,  and that when the furnace has been  lined with brick, which is necessary,  the plant can be made at any rate to  successfully treat the Snowshoe or any  other snlphide ore. to The Snowshoe ore  is self fluxing, containing as it does  hematite iron, lime, quartz and copper,  which latter can be graded to about 10  per cent. In the spring a brick building, roofed with tin, will be erected  over the smelter, and the owners expect to make a sufficient sum out, of  treating* the ore to pay for developing  their property. If the smelter is not a  " fake " this will be no difficult matter,  the Snowshoe ore running higher than  is usually found in connection with so  enormous a body. /  ODD-FELLOWSHIP.  A meeting was held in Rendell &  Co.'s hall on Thursday evening to discuss the matter of organizing a lodg*e of  Odd-fellows in the Boundary Creek  district. Mr. Thos. Hardy of Anaconda presided, and in a few words laid the  question before those present. There  were, he said, about 20 members of the  order residing between Greenwood and  Midway, nearly all of whom were anxious that a local lodg*e be formed, to  meet at some convenient point in this  district. He himself was a member of  Carson lodge and, as was the case with  several others, found it impossible to  attend the meetings. He had no doubt  that a very strong lodge could be started and carried on successfully.  Mr. D. Mclyaren, of Carson, who was  present as a visitor, then gave statistics as to the cost of starting* his own  lodge and explained in what way a  considerable expense could be avoided  here which was unavoidably incurred  by them.  After some informal discussion the  following were appointed committees  to ascertciin the names of all who were  willing to join a lodge, if started, and  to report at a meeting* to be held next  Saturday evening : For Anaconda and  south���Messrs. T. Hardy and IU. Y.  Birnie ; for Greenwood and vicinity-  Messrs. A. B. Hart, T. M. Gulley and  W�� J. Harber. It may be mentioned,  that there are in the district six members belonging to the Vernon lodge.  There is to be a Christmas tree and  celebration on Anarchist mountain for  the school children of that locality.���'.  aoncnsoKKsan  Dissolution of Partnership,  HOTICE is hereb3r g-iven, that the partnership heretofore existing- between Frank  Wood and J.
