Some time ago,, as  was stated in these colunins, 'Mr. McCandless, a  prominent merchant of Victoria, wrote a letter to  the Victoria Times, urging the coast merchants  to use their influence in securing the charter.  D.  nounced through  R.   Ker,   another   Victoria   merchant,   an-  the   columns   of  The Times his intention  to oppose the charter.    As Mr. Ker's  letter  showed a lack  of   knowledge   of  the   trade  conditions   in   the   Boundary  Creek district, the following letter written by Duncan Ross  appeared in the Victoria Times :  To the Editor : A reply above this date, to a letter  which appeared in the Victoria Times of October 29th, will  be considered a; rather tardy one. The responsibiltty for  the delay must be placed elsewhere. Had Mr. Ker (to whose  letter I wish to direct attention) and other Victoria business  men fought loyally last winter for their own interests and  ^ the interests of the province, instead of battling for the C.  P. R., there is a .strong probability that the Boundary Creek  subscribers of your valuable paper could be enjoying its  pages the day following publication, instead of laboring  under the disadvantage of a slow stage line mail service ,  and there is an equally strong probability that Victoria  wholesale merchants would be in a position to deliver their  g-oods to the merchants of Boundary creek by an all-rail  route. The people of Boundary creek are anxious to secure  every .assistance in their struggle for railway competition,  and they regret that Mr. Ker should have given an earnest  of his intention to again act against their interests and  Victoria's interests.  It is an old saying that" patriotism is the last refuge  of a scoundrel;" it is equallg true that the loyalty cry is at  once raised by those who are barren of argument.    Mr. Ker  is anxious about   protecting  Canadian   interests, and fears  that trade may be diverted by an American railway.    His  fears  are groundless   and his arguments are but echoes of  Sir William Van Home  and other C. P. R. officials.    Does  Mr. Ker wish   to   be  convinced   that   the  construction of a  railway   from  Marcus  to  Greenwood  will  not   divert   the  the   Canadian   trade ? Then  let him go to his  old political  friend, Mr. R. P. Rithet, who will tell him that the greater  portion   of the  goods  sold   by   his firm to Boundary Creek  merchants  is  shipped  by  the  American  lines to Marcus.  Wilson Bros., Simon Eeiser & Co., Okell &  Morris Co., and  other Victoria wholesale firms will tell him   a similar story.  When I lived in   Victoria  he  was   credited   with   having a  large amount of business acumen and some common sense.  Will he say that the Boundary Creek business  of Victoria  merchants  is  likely   to   be  jeopardized  or Canadian trade  diverted  if   goods  purchased  in  Victoria  are   hauled  the  entire way to Boundary creek on arailway, instead of sixty-  five mile of the distance   by   wagon ?    The   Americans are  now  plated on an equal footing as  far  as competition is  concerned, and they get none of the trade,,nor will they be  in a better  possition   than   Canadian  merchants  when the  Kettle River road is completed.  If there were anything in the argument that the construction of a railway from American .territory had a  tendency to hamper or divert Canadian trade, why does the _  loyal, patriotic Mr. Ker not pour the vials of his wrath  upon the Canadian Pacific railway company. Like all  corporations, it has neither soul to be damned nor body to  be kicked and would scarcely be disturbed b}- criticisms,  which might give Mr. Kerr intense satisfaction. If there is  a pound of cured ham sold in Chicago, or a pint of beer in  Milwaukee, or a keg- of nails in Everett, or any article of  commerce sold in any of the United States centers and its  destination is a Canadian point ; or if we unpatriotic Canadians in Boundary Creek wish to send a pound of ore to the  Everett or Great Falls, or any other United States smelter,  or if Mr. Ker desires to find a market for his famous rolled  oats in American towns, or buys grain on the American  side to teach the Canadian farmer a salutai^ lesson, the  obsequious, enterprising, wide-awake C. P. R. agent is a  "Johnny-on-the-spot," hypnotizing you with unanswerable  arguments in favor of C. P. R. rates and C. P. R. timetables. H�� does not consider for a moment whether the  iroods are Canadian or American : he wants them hauled to   '   markets.  their destination over his lines. The C. P. R. has its branch  lines into eve^' United States business center alongf the  great lakes and international boundary line, and it has no  sentiment as far as new business is concerned. It is onl}"  when competition threatens that the burle}' president of the  C. P. R. waves the old flag and calls upon Mr."JRer to be  his standard-bearer. ���  �� Is not Mr. Ker's patriotism tarnished by selfishness, a  failing which rightly or wrongiy has been charg-ed by-'the-  rest of the province to most of the old time business men.  Is this the Mr. Ker who, with other members of the Victoria board of trade, worked so assiduously to bo3rcott the-  C. H. R. and to patronize the 'how. hateful American railway lines ? Or is it a brand-new Mr. Ker, expurgated bj'  the Edmonton mills and their relation to the C. P. NR.?  Eet us bring the effect of  this  very patriotic sentiment  of his nearer home.    Between Victoria   and   San Francisco  there plies a line of steamers, owned   and  controlled by the ,  powerful   American   Pacific   Coast   Steamship   company.  These steamers are  subsidized   by   the   Dominion   g-overnment.    Now,if  there Were ho trade nor business connection  between San Francisco and Victoria, those steamers would  not be on the route.   We of Boundary Greek and our equally  disloyal   Canadian    friends    in    Kootenay    have   become  enthused by the loyal vaporings of Mr. Ker and his equall}r  misguided conferes.    We organize ourselves and we petition  the Dominion   g-overnment  to   abolish   the  subsidy   to the  Pacific Coast Steamship, company's steamers because their  being on the route has a tendency to divert Canadian trade.  We back our petitions by resolutions of our boards, of trade,  and we  telegraph, at  somebody   else's   expense, interviews  with our prominent business   men   to   eastern   newspagers,  and marked  copies  of  these   are  sent   to   the  members of  parliament, and we urge upon the members of the provincial legislature to pass a resolution endorsing our position.  Do I   hear Mr.   Ker's  melodious   voice  raised  in  eloquent  endorsation   of   our  patriot   conduct,   and   do  I   hear   the  hosannas   of   his   anti-Boundary   Creek    colleagues ?    My  imagination cannot carry  me   that  far, but  I   can   see Mr.  Ker standing on Campbell's corner and hysterically waving-  his   hands   and   indignantly   stating   that   the  people   of  Kootenay and Boundary  Creek should mind their own business   and   leave   Victoria   and  Victoria's   interests  alone.  What right then   has   he   to   tell   the   people  of  Boundary  Creek, who are just  as loyal  as he is, that the markets for  the product of their mines and   the   markets   in   which they  may   buy   necessary   supplies   must be   restricted  by   the  ignorant selfishness of a few coasters, or  by the political  exigencies   at   Ottawa?    What  right  has   he   to tell them,  who are entitled to as many commercial rights and liberties  as he is, that they must bend the knee to the C. P. R. and  accept   any ��rates  it wishes   to   levy   or   any   conditions it  desires to impose.      . Duncan Ross.  '"If  ���sit.  THE   KNOB   HILL.  The Spokesman-Review, usualty accurate in its mining-  news, has been misinformed concerning the Knob Hill,in  Greenwood camp. The tunnel is now in 400 feet instead of  137 and the hanging wall has not yet been reached, nor will  it be for another fifty feet. The tunnel crosscuts the vein  at right angles and is every foot in ore. There are 7,000  tons of ore on the dump at the tunnel, and there is not one  pound of waste. The Review very properly says that the  Knob Hill is the biggest mine of the kind in the world, but  its dimensions are much greater than those quoted in the  Spokane paper. Good progress is being made in the  tunnel.    The drills and compressor are working   smoothl)r.  Several men are also at work sinking the shaft to meet  the drift at the 200-foot level on the Ironsides. Mr. W. Y.  Williams, the superintendent, was at the properties last  week and expressed himself as well satisfied with the progress being made. Mr. Jay P.

It is  now twelvemonths since the agitation  for securing- a more suitable cemetery  site was started, but nothing- has been  done. The absence of any definite results arises from the fact that there was  no method of procedure and no proper  steps taken by those upon whom the  responsibility was placed. There are  several ways of securing- a cemetery  site. One is for a company to acquire  the necessary land outside the city  limits. Such a cemetery is reg-ulated  by a provincial act. The better way is  for the municipal .council'to take charg-e  of the matter. Under the Municipal  Clauses act, the council has power to  pass a by-law "to accept, purchase and  hold land or real property for public  cemeteries within or without the municipal limits, and to provide for the  reg-ulation of cemeteries," and also  power to pass a by-law " prohibiting-  the burial of human bodies, excepting-  'rin such places and under such conditions as the by-law may authorize."  The position of the city to-day is  that it has no burying- ground. The  plot used for that purpose is the property of the townsite. It was never donated to the city. If the townsite  company allows its lands to be used  for cemetery purposes, and any one  thinks himself damag-ed thereby, the  company is liable for dainag-es. Under  the circumstances, the   Townsite   com  pany  would  be   foolish   to   allow  its  lands to be used for that purpose.  The city should acquire its own  cemetery site, either by purchase or by  the grace of a public-spirited citizen.  The site should not be purchased or  selected until the health officer and the  engineer report that the drainag-e  therefrom does not run into Boundary  creek. When the site is selected,'a bylaw should be passed regiulating- matters relating- thereto. If. any fraternal  society desires a plot in   the  cemetery,  it should  not  be   a difficult  matter to  make terms.  The selection of a cemetery site does  not appear to be a serious matter if  g-one about in the rig-ht way.  See J. R.

A numerously-sig-ned petition, requesting- an appropriation for the construction of a wag-on road up the Kettle river -above Rock Greek, is being-  circulated for further sig-natures. The  -necessity for the road is apparent to  any one acquainted with the various  resources of the district throug-h which  the road will pass. There are many  promising- mining- properties, and the  fertile valleys are being- taken up by  settlers;1 The district has been retarded because of the great difficulties  in g-etting- in supplies by very poor  trails. The country through which  the road will pass is comparatively  level, and the largest item of expense  will be the construction of a bridge  across the West Fork.  IMPROVEMENTS   PROMISED.  The Grand Forks Miner is authority  for the  statement  that  Mr. J. O. Mc-  Eeod, inspector .of railway mail  service, has   announced  that  the  irregularities in connection with the distribution of mails at  Grand Forks would be  removed   if   a   night   clerk   were appointed, as  one man  cannot  work 24  hours a day.    This decision  bears out  the contention  of The   Times.    The  Times does not know who the deputy-  postmaster is, but  it  does know that  the service has  been, very  unpopular.  The fault  lies   in  the  method of  appointing postmasters.    In Grand Forks  for instance a postmaster is appointed  to look after the office.    He is  paid a  salary and  commissions.    If he needs  one or more  clerks, he  is supposed to  engage and pay   theni.    But the postmaster  at  Grand Forks runs a  saloon  and farms the office out to, a youngster  who   is   expected   to   do   all the work.  We believe all postoffices should be in  direct charge  of  the  postmasters and  they  ought to  engage  ample  help to  give the public a prompt  and efficient  service.    There is  no law  compelling  them  to   act   as  postmasters  if  they  think   the  proper   discharge  of  their  office unprofitable.    The  postoffice department   should   insist  upon   having  postmasters   who   could    take   actual  charge of the office.  THREE   MARRIAGES.  This   week   was   in   one   respect  a  record breaker  in  Greenwood.    Three  marriages    were    celebrated    at   the'  Windsor   hotel.     On   Saturday  night  Mr. Wilder, a Rock, Creek farmer, and  Miss Annie Kay of Sidley were united  in marriage   by   Rev. T. Oswald.    On  Wednesday evening, at the same place,  Mr.   John   Ross   Way   and   Miss Roy  were   married    03'   Mr.   Oswald.    Mr.  Way   is  the  engineer  at  the  Mother  L,ode   mine.     On   Thursday   evening-  Mr.   H.    A.   King-, the   Copper  street  stationer, and  Mrs.  O'Brien   of  Rossland,   were  united   in   marriage, Rev.  Mr. Oswald being- again the officiating  clerg-yman.  . Daine rumor has it that the three  marriages are but the beginning of  numerous similar events during the  next two months.  !�� 4* *$* 4* ���$* *k* *$? 4* 4* *4* 4* 4' 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* ���$* *$��� 4* *$* 4* 4* *$* 4* ic  ����*  Wholesale and Retail  Dealers in  Fresh and Cured Meats  Fish and Oysters *. ��� />������  Live and Dressed Poultry  ���ard  Ithe  <fr  .

The Bank of Halifax has opened a  branch at Grand Forks.  W. R. Megawof Vernon was in the  city for a few days this week.  Charles Stooke has opened a store at  the  corner  of  Deadwood  and  Copper  streets.  -- (  G.   A.   Henderson   of   the   Bank  of  J Montreal spent several days   in Grand  Forks this week.  James Kerr leaves for Scotland about  the first of the year. He will take his  mother home with him.  Rev. Father Palmer will conduct  the services in the Catholic church on  Sunday (to-morrow) at 10:30 a. m.    .. .,  A regular stage line has been established between Cascade and Brooklyn,  under the management of Robt.Willis.  H. T. Wilgress,,the C. P. R. right of  way ag-ent, has returned from Grand  Forks and will spend several weeks in  Greenwood.  'There was a large attendance at the  ball given by the management of the  Palace hotel on Thanksgiving eve.  An enjoyable evening was spent.    .  The Bank of Montreal has bought  the Bealey Investment company's big  safe and the Bealey company has purchased the Greenwood City Mercantile  company's safe.  Rendell & Co. are calling for tenders  for for. excavating 75 x 50 feet on their  lots at the corner of Copper and Greenwood streets. The firm intends erecting a large two-story block.  The city council at Grand Forks has  voted $500 to Richard Armstrong, who  is going east to protest against the C.  P. R. locating its station two miles  away from the lower town. It would  be interesting to learn the council's >  authority for making this appropriation.  The Presbyterian Thanksgiving concert in Rendell & Go's hall was attended,by an overcrowded house. A  well-diversified programme was presented. The following took part:  Porter's Orchestra, Mrs. Flood, Mrs.  Shaw,, Miss Moody, Rev. T. Oswald, J. .  Gully, C. Scott Galloway, Chas. Galloway, Miss Castleman and J. Mitchell.  D. C. Cameron of Walkerville, Ont.,  is expected in the city in a few days.  He is to be the manager of the Greenwood branch of the Canadian Bank of  Commerce. Mr. Cameron is an experienced and successful bank cman.  Mr. Morris, the manager of the Vancouver branch left for home yesterday.  Mr. Wilson, the general manager  for P. Burns & Co., made a special  tiip through the district last week"  visiting all the branches of the firm.  He was accompanied by J. P. Flood,  their Boundary Creek manager. P.  Burns & Co. have built a slaughter  house at Fholt, near Rendell & Co's  branch store. From this point, Niagara and all the railway camps are  supplied.  The mail stages have changed their  time tables. The Marcus stage stops  at Cascade over night instead Of at  Grand Forks, consequently the mails  do not reach the latter point until, the  forenoon. The Greenwood stage leaves  here daily at 7:30 a. m. and returns at  7 o'clock in the evening. The Penticton stage leaves Greenwood every alternate day at 8 a. m. and returns at  6 p. m. the following day.  A movement is on foot to organize a  band in the cit}". There is plenty of  g-ood material for a band. Mr. J. R.  Porter, who is interested in the matter,  says that if the instruments were here,  twelve old bandsmen could be found to  play them. It has been sug-gested that  the instruments be purchased by private subscription and by the proceeds  of concerts during the winter months.  The movement is a commendable one |  and should be supported.  Rossland.  Investment and  LIMITED    LIABILITY.  Greenwood.  Financial & Insurance  GEO.   R.   NADEN.   /Manager.

SATURDAY,  NOVEMBER 26, 1898.^  SMALL   ECONOMY.  The Times does not believe that the  reign of economy introduced by the  Semlin government is in many respects  popular or in the best interests of the  ,., province. The acts of the government  looking towards the curtailing of expenditure are often small and sometimes mean. To boast of these small  ���''���.virtues will force many to the conclusion that possibly the government will  stand watching in larger and broader  acts in connection with the administration of public affairs.  Our attention has been drawn  to an  example of how the government intend  to save   the   province   from   financial  . ruin.   For several years the legislature  has been in the habit of  voting  small  g-rants to resident   physicians   in   isolated   districts.      It   is  quite   possible  that  in  some  instances  these  grants  were given for political   purposes, but  in the majority of cases they were well  earned.      The    government   has     announced that   these  grants   are  to  be  cancelled on   the  31st  of  December,���  the middle of the financial year.  ���  The decision   of  the  g-overnment is  not honest, neither can it be considered  regular.    The government did not pass  those grants : the}' were voted  by   the  legislature,    and   to     the     legislature  should be left the power of taking- them  away.   When these grants were passed  they morally, if not  legally,   belonged  to   the   poorly-paid   and   hard-working-  physicians   for   whom  the}'   were   intended.    To cut off those g-rants  when  they are half exhausted   is   not   acting  fairly  with   the   medical  men.      I^ast  year $300 was voted to  Dr. Jakes, resident   physician   for   Boundary   Creek.  This'grant was  secured   after  a hard  fight   by    Donald    Graham,   M.P.P.,  backed up by representations from the  people here.    Mr. Graham cannot  but  have a high  appreciation   of  his   new  political friends   when   they   refuse  to  pay   half   the   g-rant   that   he   wrested  from a hostile government and   a  hostile legislature.  If Hon. Mr. Semlin wishes his government to be popular, he should send  his attorney-general to some institution where he could take a course in  manners. He appears to be free from  the amenities of life and to be laboring  under the impression that all the honesty in the province is now confined  within the walls of tlie parliament  buildings. His circular to the coroners  t is a piece of boorish impertinence. It  is quite possible that some coroners  have been endeavoring td make money  where inquests were unnecessary; but  to tell professional men that they have  been in the habit of plundering the  provincial treasury was entirely uncalled for. The majority of coroners  have had sufficient public enterprise to  do their duty at considerable loss to  themselves. If Hon. Mr. Martin expects to secure the best men in positions that are at best unprofitable, he  must treat them with some respect and  assume that they are a little better  than thieves.  MUNICIPAL   ELECTIONS.  Considerable interest is being shown  in the approaching municipal elections.  Nomination day is Monday, January  9th, and election day the Thursday  following. There are several rumors  regarding candidates for mayor and  aldermen, but nothing definite can be  stated until next week.  Mayor Wood has decided not to be a  candidate at the next election. He has  been mayor for two terms and thinks  some one else oug-ht to assume the responsibility of acting as chief magistrate for the city. His time is also  fully occupied with his many private  interests. While mistakes have been  made during his term of office, everyone appreciates the fact that Mayor  Wood did his utmost to promote the  best interests of the city. He was  twice elected by acclamation.  THB    CANADIAN  Head Office    -   -   -    TORONTO.  Established 1807.  CAPITAL   :   :   $6,000,000.

The Grand Forks Miner is foolish to  expect any advantag-e  from  misrepresenting   the  position   of  the   C. P. R.  There are plenty of honest  arguments  to be advanced in favor of competitive  roads, and only honest arguments will  avail  on   Parliament  hill   at  Ottawa.  The Miner must  know   that  the C. P.  R. does, not get a large   land grant for  building the   Robson-Boundary   Creek  road.    Before construction  began the  provincial   legislature   had   offered   a  land grant of 20,000 acres   a   mile or a  cash subsidy of $4,000  a   mile.    If one  was accepted, the other was cancelled.  TheC.P.  R.   accepted   the  cash  subsidy.    This arrangement   is   a   matter  within the knowledge of  most  people,  and the Miner is foolish to make statements at variance with the fads.  If the Miner would get  rid of its old  habit, it could give good service in the  interests of the Corbin chaeter. Misrepresentation of the C. P. R. will only  prejudice the cause the Miner is endeavoring to support.  atch this S  n. E. ERAZEE,  Hamill Block  Copper Street.

Mann, Foley and Larsen are  going to move their headquarters from  Brooklyn to Niagara. Most of their  work is now completed at Brooklyn,  and as Niagara is centrally located between the Summit and Cascade, hence  the change.  Messrs. W. M. Law & Co. had a  large consignment of rubbers and  woollen goods arrive to-day, and they  now carry one of the largest assorted  stocks in^the district.  Mr. Livingstone, of the well-known  firm of Livingstone & Co., Brooklyn,  was in town last Monday and purchased a lot on Main street. He has  let a contract for a two-story building,  30 x 50, and intends carrying a complete line of hardware, etc.  Mr. 10. White's restaurant is about  completed, and he expects to be open  by the early part of next week. The  restaurant will be open day and night.  Messrs. Kempt & Lockhart, the well-  known hotel keepers from Brooklyn,  have purchased two lots and have let a  contract to Messrs. Sutherland & Mat-  tinson for a $3,000-buildmg. The contract calls for 20 bedrooms and a barroom 25 x 60. It is the intention to  have a billiard and pool table in connection wtth the bar.  Mr. P. Welch, the railroad contractor, was in town last Monday and  stated to your correspondent that he  expects to double the number of men  now working on the line. It is estimated there will be between eight and  nine hundred men actually employed  near Niagara by the 15th of December.  Owing to the scarcity of teams at  the sawmill, the Townsite company  have purchased two four-horse teams,  and still, owing to  the  great demand  for   lumber, ��people   are  complaining  about the delay.  Three daily stages are now running  between here and Grand Forks, and  the owners are doing a rushing business.  The merchants and business men  are arranging for a fancy dress ball to  be h^ld in the Niagara concert hall on  Christmas JE}ve.  Niagara, 22nd November, 1898.  LOCAL   NOTES.  The English church will give a concert on New Year's eve.  Hugh Cameron, Mayor of Gamp McKinney, paid Greenwood a business  visit this week.  D. Beath and Capt. Shields have  pushed the contract on the Cordick.  They drifted 16 feet at the 50-foot level,  and were working in good ore.  The electric light plant at the Mother  Lode is now working smoothly. It is  the only electric plant in the district.  The light will be used in the shaft and  in all the buildings.  The machinery has been installed at  the Brooklyn, and will be set in motion next week. Work on the property  will be continued during the winter  and also on the Stemwinder.  A.
