Proprietors Boundary Creek Times. -7T *-^r-,tt^z  \  S"  A -Weekly Paper published-in the interests ot tbe Boundary CreeK lining District  Vol V,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY,   OCTOBER  1, 1898;  108  No, 4  THE   MORRISON   MINE:  As development work proceeds,   the  fact becomes more  clearly established that Deadwood camp contains enormous  bodies of ore.    The large amount of development:  work on  -the Mother Lode and the Sunset has demonstrated that here  at least are  ledges   of   great  width.    The  development of  other properties in the camp shows  clearly  that  there  are  other Mother Ixodes and Sunsets.    Among the properties on  which a limited amount of development work has been done  and where the indications are most encouraging is the Morrison.    The Morrison is located on a sidehili about 2500 feet  south of the Mother Lode.    The wagon road to Copper camp  passes through the property.    In August 1895, J. Morrison,  the locator was driving along this road when he saw an outcropping within a few feet of him*.    His  trained  eye  soon  detected signs of mineral and he then and there located the  Morrison  claim.    His  prospecting friends  laughed at  his  location but Mr. Morrison said nothing but  went  to  work.  Several surface cuts were run and three 22-foot shafts sunk.  In the discovery shaft 6 feet of solid copper  ore  was found.  Both the other shafts, one 400 ft. east from the discovery and  the other 200 feet beyond are in solid ore.    The vein appears  to be over 200 feet wide (and runs back the full length of the  the claim, 1500.feet.   The ore gives copper values as high as  32  per  cent,   and as   high as   $17  in gold.    Samples were  taken from the different shafts and high values were secur-  ���ed in every case. ���  Mr. Morrison some time ago succeeded in organizing a  company, associating with himself Messrs. Oliver, Loring  & Crane, the well known Spokane niining men. The company is capitalized for $1,000,000 and 400,000 shares have  been placed in the treasury for development purposes. The  controlling interest in the property is held by Messrs. Morrison and Oliver. The company has taken the machinery  from the Athelstan in Wellington camp. It consists of a  30 horse-power boiler, an engine and hoist. It is being  installed at the Morrison. As soon as the plant is in position one of the shafts will be sunk 50 feet. A cross cut will  be run at this level and if the result proves as encouraging  as the surface work indicates, the shaft will be sunk to the  100 foot level and the development work confined.  It is difficult to say what the Morrison may be as the  development work so far is limited, but there is every indication there is a 200 foot ledge of ore giving high copper  values and good gold values. It is a property which is well  worth developing and which is almost sure to take a front  rank among the big properties in the district.,  Adjacent to the Morrison are the Gold Bug and Hidden  Treasure. These claims are owned by A. Drucker, M. P.,  who is at present visiting the district. Considerable development work has been carried out on these properties. The  ore is of a similar character to that found on the   Morrison.  fif  'if  BUILDING   RAILWAYS.  Mr. Dan Mann one of the best known railway contract-  -ors in the Dominion spent Sunday in the city. Mr. Mann  is one of the contractors for the Columbia & Western Railway now being built between Robson and Midway. His visit  to the district was chiefly in connection with his mining  interests. He and Mr. Wm. McKenzie have secured control  .of the Stemwinder, Brooklyn and several other large properties which are now being developed under Mr. Boss' supervision.  Mr. Mann talked to a Times' representative   about the  railway enterprises in which his firm is interested.    He said  that rapid progress was being made in the construction of  the Columbia &�� Western railway. At first it was a very  difficult matter to secure men but recently they have been  coming in greater numbers. The contracts were awarded  from Robson to several miles on this side of Grand Forks.  A good deal of the grading will be completed this fall and  he believes the entire road will be completed to Greenwood  by the first of next May.     ���  With reference to   the   Victoria,  -Vancouver & Eastern  railway Mr.   Mann  stated  that a corps  of engineers were  working under Mr. Ross.    They  were   making  a thorough  survey   of   the  route   between  Penticton and Midway and  ought to have this work completed within the  next   thirty  days.    It was very important that this survey work �� should  be carefully done.    Heretofore the surveys, of the route were  only preliminary and hurriedly   carried  out  so   that  they  were of little value for   construction   purposes.   -Engineers  choosing the best route  could save many dollars in the construction of the road.    His firm fully  intended to construct  this piece of the road and also from Penticton to the  coast,  but they also intended to ask Parliament for a subsidy next  session.    The work was unusually heavy and without a subsidy it would be a difficult matter to finance  the  necessary  money.    Mr. Mann was also not satisfied  with the  method  of paying the provincial subsidy.    He pointed out  that the  entire road from the coast  to  Penticton  a distance of over  300 miles must be constructed before the  subsidy  could  be  secured.    He thought the interests of the province would be  equally well guarded and the contractors chances  of finan-  ceering the money greatly enchanced by dividing this road  into sections and allowing  the   subsidy  as each   section is  completed.    Mr. Mann pointed out that  his  firm has a contract for building several hundred miles of railway in Manitoba.    They secured a subsidy from the  Manitoba government and as soon as ten miles of railway is constructed, the  subsidy for that distance is paid.    This gives them a better  opportunity for securing money to build the road.  Mr. Mann was asked regarding the Yukon railway. He  said that he did not allow himself to think much about the  matter as it was rather a sore subject. All that he did  know was that their forces had been scattered by the effort  made to construct a railway and greatly handicapped them  in their railway work elsewhere ; in fact some of their best  men had not yet returned from the Yukon.  Mr. Mann was enthusiastic regarding their mining  interests in the district. He could endorse everything that  had been said in favor of Boundary Creek district., When  asked if he and his railway associates were going to oppose  the Corbin charter next session, Mr. Mann stated that he  did not know as he had not discussed the matter with his  associates.  Mr. Mann was accompanied by Mr. Lewis Lukes. Mr.  Lukes represented McKenzie & Mann in their negotiations  with the Turner government during the last session. He  had charge of the firm's undertakings in the Yukon country.  Messrs. Mann and Lukes went to Greenwood camp Sunday  evening. They left on Monday for Marcus. Mr. Mann  proceeds direct to Montreal.  .slfc  fir  *Sfe  J. A. Cameron was down from  Long  Lake  this   week.  He has been developing the  Lakeside  in   that  camp.    Mr.  Cameron is running a tunnel to tap the ledge. A shaft is  down 12 feet in the ore body. There is three feet of solid  ore lying between two well-defined walls. Mr. Cameron  brought down some samples ; those from the foot-wall gave  $57.60 in gold, and from the hanging wall $16.40. The ore  also carries silver. Mr. Cameron intends continuing developing the property. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  J  CAMP   MCKINNEY.  Camp McKinney, B. C, has the center of the stage in niining matters in  Spokane .just now. The recent rich  strike on the Waterloo; has done more,  apparently, to attract the attention of  mining men to the camp and bring the  investors forward with their cash than  the steady payment of dividends by  the Cariboo company ever did. Free  gold visible to the naked eye, always  has an irresistable attraction.  The second payment on the stock of  the, Cariboo company held under option  by the new company recently organized was made last week, although it was  not due for about a month. The former meeting to ratify the sale of the  property to the new company will be  held in Camp McKinney to-day. Although Caribbo capitalization has been  ; increased to $1,250,000, the stock is  selling in Toronto markets for about  80 cents, which is higher than ever and  serves to demonstrate the fondness of  the eastern Canadian for a dividend  payer, which has always been managed in a conservative manner.  The��Waterloo company is completing its incorporation. The promotors'  stock, which is half of the capital slock  of 1,000,000 shares, was all quickly  taken in this city, not in* large blocks  by a few, but by a large number of  mining men and business men of the  city. There was a rush to get in on  the ground floor and it is said by the  officers of the company that the promotors' stock could have been placed several times over.  " None of the treasur3r stock will be  offered to the public at present," said  J. D. Farrell of the board of trustees of  the company yesterday. " The original stockholders have asked that the  first block of 50,000 shares be offered to  themselves first so that they may be  given the first opportunity to add to  their holdings. This has been done  and the first block has been placed at  5 cents per share."  Dr. J. F. Reddy will go north soon to  start development work on the property. Until the present deal,was completed the work was being done by two  men who were being kept at it by Mrs.  Finnegan and Thomas Graham, two  of the original owner's. When the deal  was closed work stopped until the new  company could formulate its plans.  The work that has been done on the  property as shown by maps and plans  in the office of the company, was first  a 60-foot shaft sunk on the ledge which  showed fair values   from  and   had   got  into   free  the surface  ore, of  gold  greater value than ever in the bottom  of the shaft. It is said that the average of the ledge in this shaft was about  $8 per ton in gold, increasing with  depth. Water coming into the shaft  drove the miners out which proved to  be a good thing for the property, for  after making some open cuts the miners uncovered the ledge at the point  where the recent rich strike was made.  The first shaft was sunk about 300 feet  from the east end line; the recent  strike was made about 500 feet west,  several  open  cuts   showing   the vein  continuously between the deep shaft  and the present opening. A shaft was  sunk at the point where the free gold  was found on the surface which was  down 15 feet at last reports. In that  distance the vein had widened from  six to seven feet and showed more free  gold than ever. Some samples have  lately been received from the bottom  of the shaft which show a wonderful  amount of gold in plain view. The ore  is blue quartz. While the gold as  shown by the large samples received  here is apparently disseminated  through the quartz, it is frequently  bunched in rich masses. The ore is  exactly similar to specimens in the  office of the Cariboo company in this  city.  The company owns in addition to the  Waterloo two fractions which give in  all 1200 feet of the vein, according to  the reports of those familiar with ���the  property. The Fontenoj'- claim which  adjoins the Waterloo has opened the  same vein about 100 feet from the Waterloo end line.  It is proposed to put - on a double  shift and to sink at the point where the  rich find wasmade. When the shaft  gets down where the water is bothersome, machinery to handle it will be  introduced. "  Another Camp McKinney deal which  is being undertaken by Spokane people  concerns the Wiarton claim which lies  between the Cariboo group and the  Waterloo, the only intervening property between the two and with the  same vein, obviously, running through  it. A company has been formed under  provincial laws with 600,000 shares of  par value of $1. The treasury has  200,000 shares, but no effort is being  made to sell these. What the company  seeks is to place the promotors' stock  to the extent of 75,000 shares for $6,750,  of which it is agreed that $5,000 shall  be applied to development of the claim.  CD. Rand is engineering the deal.  The claim is crown granted and has  some development work showing good  values in the vein.���-Spokesman-Review.  Catholic Services.  Rev.

L.   White   and  G.   %.  Gault,   of  Montreal, and Jay P.   Graves  of  Spokane,  were  in  the  city  on  Tuesday.  Mr. White is the secretary of the Knob  Hill Mining Company, and Mr.   Gault  is a  heavy  shareholder  in  the  Knob  Hill   and  also   in  the   Old  Ironsides.  They are making a tour of inspection  with Mr. Graves, the manager of both  companies.      They  visited  Kootenay,  where they have extensive  mining interests,   before   coming   to   Boundary  Creek.    Mr. Gault was here last  year  and   was   greatly   surprised     at    the  growth  of  Greenwood.    He  was   also  pleased with the  development  carried  on at the properties in which he   is interested.    He is  more  than  ever  convinced that Boundary Creek will , soon  become the biggest ore   producing district in British Columbia,���as soon   as  transportation   facilities   are   secured.  Mr. White visited  Boundary Creek for  the first time.    He was  delighted with  the outlook at the  companies'   properties and surprised to  find   a  town  the  size of Greenwood.   Messrs. White and  Gault examined the ore exhibit for the  Spokane   Fair  and were  particularly  pleased with  the  ore  from  the  King  Solomon and B.C. mines.   The visitors  left   for   White's  camp   on  Tuesday.  They   intended   to   visit  the  City   of  Paris and^Linooln, both  claims  being  held by Mr. Graves and his associates.  HORSES   STOLEN.  Aid. L. S. Moulton-Barrett went to  Osoyoos lake for ducks last week. He  was accompanied by A. H. Harrison  and E}. Barchard, of the B.C. mine.  They saw some ducks, but Mr. Barrett  does not tell how many were shot.  Horse thieves were also present in the  vicinity, although the sportsmen did  not see them. The thieves saw their1  horses, however, and Mr. Barrett's  handsome saddle horse proved too  great a temptation. The party were  camping on Myers creek one night,  and in the morning their horses had  disappeared. They soon discovered  that the notorious Jack Euans, a bad  man from the Colville reservation, was  in the vicinity and that there was a.  strong probability that he had taken  their horses across the line. Word was  sent to J. McDonald, customs officer at  Oro, and he started a posse after the  horse thief. Messrs. Harrison and  Barchard also remained behind to recover their horses if possible.  Fvans is charged with stealing several horses from prospectors in that  vicinity. Mr. Barrett returned on  Sunday.  mmmmmi  Boilers,  Hoists,  Pumps,��  Cars,  Wheels,  Electric  Batteries  and Fuse,  Stamp Mills*  Compressors,  Drills,  Hose,  Oils & Waste,  Pipe & Fittings  Gongs, &c,  mmmmmmnr  STOCK     ON     HAND     AT     ROSSLAND.  e     9     o  o     ��  a     e  Canadian Rand Drill Co.

They did not find their horses.  Ben Fitzpatrick and Denny Clune  have completed an assessment work  upon their claim in Summit camp.  They have a good body of high grade  copper ore in sight.  A large two-storey building is being  erected on Kimberly avenue for Mr.  Shaffer a recent arrival in the city.  Tlie ground floor will be used for mil-  linery and dressmaking parlors.  Rendell & Co., removed a portion of  their goods to the new store on Greenwood street. The new building will be  used as a salesroom while the old building will be turned into a warehouse.  A. T. Kendrick and Fred. Farquhar,  of Northport, came in from the North  Fork on Wednesday. Mr. Kendrick is  a prominent merchant of Northport.  He will probably establish a business  in this district.  Considerable work has been carried  out on the Humming Bird this summer.  Over 100 tons of copper ore, g-iving  values of over $30 to the ton is now on  the dump. Work will be continued on  the property all winter.  Several of the business houses on  Copper street will have to be raised in  consequence of the street grading.  Guess Bros..' assay office, Smith & Mc-  Rae's book store and Fred Hilbert's  barber shop are all below grade.  The provincial police officers have  been rounding up the " blind pig "  men on the railway tote road. Several of the operators have been heavily  fined. One of the culprits was taken to  Midway on Wednesday night by Officer  Dinsmore.  Hugh McCutcheon of Rossland is in  the city. He came over with A. Mac-  nish the secretary of the King- Mining-  Company. Mr. McCutcheon is visiting  the different camps and will probably  make some investments on behalf of  capitalists which he represents.  Mrs. Fisher and the Misses Fisher  leave for Spokane to-morrow. Their  many friends gave 1hem a farewell  surprise party on Mondajr evening.  The proprietors of the Palace Iyivery  Stable had a hard search after two of  their saddle horses this week. A fake  doctor and a companion who had been  run out of Brooklyn hired the horses  to go to Greenwood camp. They didn't  stop at Greenwood camp but continued  to Republic. Mr. Robbins started  ,after the pair and caught them on the  road to Myers Falls. He got his horses  but no pay for their use.  J. Wl Stewart, manager for Mann,  Foley & Iyarsen, and James V. Welch,  the well known railway contractor,  came over the -trail from Fisherman  creek on Wednesday. They were looking over the ground on the North Fork  of Kettle river, where some heavy contracts have recently been awarded;  Mr. Stewart stated that the sub-contracts in the Boundary Creek valley  would be awarded shortly.  SIDLEY.  Crops in this section are magnificent.  Stephen  Johnson   has  imported   a 14-  horse-power threshing machine   and it  is now in full swing and everyone feels  pleased with the work it is doing-.

C, ���Vj|  ;f   '    J-  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  ���x  FAIR   REDISTRIBUTION.  The Opposition press is highly amusing these days. The poor old Colonist  is the " amusingest cuss " of the lot.  A short time ago Mr. Hewitt Bostbck,  M.P., told a Rossland Miner reporter  that there was a desire to re-arrange  -the representation in the House of  Commons upon a fairer basis. The  Colonist seriously tells its readers that  ���this indicates a determination upon  -the part of the Ministers to gerrymander themselves into power. The  Colonist is almost as silly as the Toronto Knipire, who tells its readers  that the, reason a more than half-a-  million dollar deficit in the postal department had been wiped out was because there was a large sale of Jubilee  stamps last year.  Neither the Colonist nor the IDmpire  help themselves nor hurt a government  by extravagant and unreasonable  .statements. The equalisation of the  representation in both federal and local  houses cannot be considered a gerrymander. Last session the Turner government fathered the most infamous  gerrymander that ever disgraced the  statutes of any country, yet the Colonist gave the measure its hearty en-  dorsation. - The Laurier government  would be recreant in its duty to the  people if it did not take the earliest  opportunity to wipe out the gross misrepresentation by which the Conservative party hoped to retain itself in  power; and the Semlin government  would be criminally negligent of the  people's rights if it did not do justice  to the disfranchised sections of this  province.  To gerrymander a province or a Dominion is an exceedingly dangerous  pastime. The average elector has a  large amount of British fair play, and  he is always ready to defend the rights  of those who have been unjustly treated  by the party in power. The redistribution bill introduced by the Turner  government was based upon no principle of representation. It was a dastardly scheme of unscrupulous politicians to thwart public opinion ; yet  the Turner government probably owe  their defeat to the same redistribution bill.  Phoenix   Postoffice.  Thos. Roderick has received a letter  from Postoffice Inspector Fletcher to  the effect that the necessary material  for a postoffice had been shipped from  Vancouver and that the Phoenix P. O,  was to be opened by October 1st. The  mails are to be delivered there daily by  Snodgrass' stage line.  A   Rossland   Visitor.  A. McNish of the firm of. Curtis &  McNish, barristers, Rossland, spent a  few days in the city this week. Mr.  McNish is secretary of the King Mining Company which was recently organized. Particulars regarding the  company appeared in The Times a  few weeks ago. In addition to Kootenay properties, the King Company has  acquired the Oro Dinero of Summit  camp. Mr. McNish visited this property for the first time and was well  pleased with the outlook.  Rossland.  itive  m Tm  Greenwood.  L1AITED    LIABILITY.  (Redf <BBt<xtt an& (ttXmtng QStofte?*,  0.

Peter Steep of Spokane spent several  days in Greenwood this week. Mr.  Steep has some niining interests on  Eholt creek.  W. J. Armstrong has decided to open  up a hardware store at Midway. Mrs.  Armstrong and family came down  from Vernon last week.  Dr. Christie and Mrs. Christie returned on Monday from a trip to  Osoyoos. The doctor reports that Mr.  ^Kreugrer who was seriously ill, is i^ap-  idly recovering.  John I. Booge, a well known Spokane  mining man is in the city. Mr. Booge  lias written many interesting letters to  the Spokesman-Review reg-arding mining- interests of the Northwest. He  will remain here for some time.  Chief of Police Taj'lor returned on  Wednesday from Vernon. McMillan  ���elected speedy trial before Judg-e  Spinks and was released on a cash bail  of $200. Miller and Eeyson also elected speed}1" trial and were released on a  cash bail of $100 each.  Thos. Hardy, District Deputy Grand  Master, I. O. O. F., left for Carson on  Wednesday to organize a Rebecca  lodge at that point. Dan Mclvaren of  Carson came over for the purpose of  escorting Mr. Hardy and introducing-  him to all intending Rebeccas.  Sam Breslauer of the Greenwood  City 'Mercantile Compan}' returned  from Davenport this week. This firm  has been making extensive improvements in their store. The shelving  has been conveniently and neatly arranged.  Fritz Hanssener left on Tuesday for  his home in Switzerland. Fritz was  one of the first settlers in Greenwood.  By hard work he succeeded in making  a snug sum of money and richly deserves his holiday. It is reported that  Fritz intends bringing out a life partner from the Alps.  THE   MONTEZUMA.  During Mr. Mann's visit here, he  paid on behalf of his syndicate $10,000  for a three-quarter interest in the  Montezuma claim. The Montezuma is  in Greenwood camp near the Stem-  winder. A quarter interest in the  property which was held by Farrell &  Midgeoii' was bonded to McKenzie  & Mann when they secured all Farrell  and Midgeon's interests. The three-  quarter interest was held by E. Keight-  ly, J. W. Iyind and Thos. Humphrey.  They bonded it to McKenzie & Mann  some time ago for $20,000,with a small  cash payment. While Mr. Mann was  here they agreed to accejDt $10,000 cash  in lieu of bond and the money was  paid. .   FEED   FROM   FRASER   RIVER.  The following letter received by the  Times from a prominent Fraser river  farmer may prove interesting to those  requiring feed :  " Eadner, Sept. 24th, 1898:���I have  been recommended to write, you for information about your market as I hear  there is a large quantity of feed used  at your place and I do not see why we  should not supply you and keep the  money in our own country.  I can supply No. 1 timothy or clover  hay at New Westminster on the wharf,  (C.P.R.,) at $9 per ton in car load lots  up to 100 tons. It is put up in small  bales so that there can be put 10 tons  in a car. I can supply No. 1 oats at  $21. If you know of any person that  wishes to buy I shall feel obliged by  your letting- them know of my offer.  I remain, yours truly,  Thos. E. Eadner.  STOPPED   WORK.  The McKenzie & Mann syndicate  have decided to stop work on their  properties for the winter. The men  have been discharged from the Stem-  winder and Brooklyn and Mr. Boss the  company's manager has returned to  Spokane. The decision was arrived at  during Mr. Mann's visit here. During  the summer considerable work has been  done on both the Brooklyn and Stem-  winder. On both properties the ore  bodies showed up well but on the Stem-  winder particular^'' there has been exposed a bod}" of remarkably g-ood looking ore. The S3rndicate decided, that  the only way to operate the properties  to anjr advantage is on a large scale  and this will be done early next spring.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  t  %  I  THE   ORO   DINERO.  Among the specimens sent to the  Spokane Fruit Fair, but few were of a  richer or more striking-appearance than  from the Oro Dinero. Other specimens  give better values but the Oro Dinero  ore, magnetic iron carrying copper  pyrites and gold and. silver, is  brig-ht and looks rich. There is much  L;.��� in appearances.    In   this   case  the ap-  } pearance is not deceitful as the follow-  ing- assays from, six samples shows.  The chief values are in copper ; gold  running about $2 and silver not-higher  than SS. The values follow': $68,84 ;  $46.80'; $60.; $55.50 ; $77.60 ; $63.64.  , The Oro Dinero is in Summit camp  ''about-eight miles"from Greenwood. It  was owned by W. A. Corbett, who  bonded the property to Ross Thompson of Rossland. He turned the property over to the King Mining Company  who are making preparations to develop it on, a large scale. t  The Oro Dinero lies immediately to  the east of the Dnima. It is situated  on the summit of a rather steep mountain. There are several veins on the  property any of which can be easily  worked by tunnels from the mountain  side. Two of these- veins have been  opened up. One vein is over 100 feet  and another is 75 feet wide. On the  latter vein a shaft is now down 35 feet.  The,shaft is in solid ore.  The King Mining Company were  fortunate in securing the Oro Dinero^  While the Kootenay properties acquired by the company may be very g"ood,  the Oro Dinero is an exceptionally  promising property. It is easily developed and should be a shipper in a very  short time. The C. P. R. will pass adjacent to the property and a spur has  been surveyed from the main line to  the Emma, Oro Dinero and other big  properties in the immediate vicinity.  The officers of the King Mining Company are : President, G. R. Maxwell,  M. P.; Vice-president, Ross Thompson;  Treasurer, Smith Curtis ; Secretary,  A. McNish ; Directors, W. A. Corbett  and A. J. McMillan.  A   WEST   FORK   RAILWAY.  Messrs. W. T. Thompson of Midway  and D. B. Vincent of Butte are making  application for a provincial charter to  build a railway from, a point at or near  the town of Midway along the West  Fork of the Kettle river to the mouth  of Beaver creek. The object of the  road is to secure railway communication with the numerous promising  mining properties in what is known as  the West Fork district., The road will  pass through a level country along the  valley of the West Fork. The projected road will continue along this valley  to within ten miles of Penticton. The  country through which the road will  run is well worth opening- up. There  are numerous mining properties all  along- the route. They have some good  showings but their development has  been retarded by lack of transportation  facilities.  Mr. Vincent whose name appears in  connection with the application is a  prominent Butte engineer who has  been in the district for some time.  Accommodation at Westminster Exhibition.  Parties attending the Ne-sy Westminster exhibition, if unable to get accommodation at New Westminster, can do  so with little difficulty in Vancouver.  In order to facilitate the movement to  and from the exhibition the C.P.R.  will run seven fast trains in each direction between Vancouver and New  Westminster, the run to occupy less  than one hour in each direction, with a.  50c. fare for the round trip, this rate  being available in either direction.

On Monday evening last the till in  the International hotel bar was broken  into and oyer $30 secured by the robber. The thief must have been well  acquainted with the hotel. He secured  an entrance through the back door and  f>roke open the till with a heavy chisel  that is kept behind the bar. He carried the till outside the bar and left it  there after taking the money.  Officer Pierce arrested G. A. Barton  on Tuesdaj'- on suspicion of having  .committed the theft. He came up for  a preliminary hearing before Police  Magistrate Hallett. There was no evidence upon which the accused could be  held and he was released. Provincial  Officer Dinsmore of Grand Forks was  in attendance and re-arrested Barton  for horse stealing on Grand Prairie.  Dinsmore took his prisoner to Grand  Forks.  POSTAL   SERVICE.  The Colonist wants the Postoffice Inspector to inquire into the master'of  three letters taking nine, eight and  seven days respectively to reach Whitewater, B.C., from Victoria. Good  Colonist, .you are hard to satisfy. Don't  worry the Postoffice Inspector about a  little matter of that kind. If we told  some of the experiences of letters in  the Boundary Creek country, you  would advocate the lynching- of the  Postoffice Inspector because he refuses  or neglects to inquire into the matter.  Nine days from Victoria to Whitewater  B. C, is a prompt service. It is 20  miles from Grand Forks, B. C, to  Greenwood, B, C, and it sometimes  takes seven days for a letter to travel  the distance���sometimes a letter gives  up in disgust and never reaches here  at all. The Postoffice Inspector ought  to be left alone. He must enjoy the interesting irregularities in the B.C.  postal service'and his pleasures should  not be curtailed.  The people of Boundai-y Creek used  to kick in-early days when the service  was reasonably bad, but now that it is  worse they are afraid to complain lest  they g-et no letters at all.  The Colonist ought to know by this  time that it is never well for the Post-  office Inspector to inquire into matters.  Each inquiry means a worse service.  The Plebiscite.  The Laurier government can very  properly shirk the responsibility of introducing- a prohibitor3r measure, on  the grounds that the plebiscite was not  a full expression of public opinion;  provided that the vote elsewhere was  as small as it was in Greenwood.  There are about 140 registered votes in  the city. Of these 27 showed sufficient-  interest in the question of prohibition  to record an expressionof their opinion.  Sixteen were   ag-ainst prohibition   and  eleven in favor. A. K. Stuart was returning officer and A. H. Lawder his  deput3r.   Best   value   for  your   mone3r   in   all  lines at Law & Co.'s.

':% -ft-'  ���������: _?.-.  1 "gt- t  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  CAN'T   HOLD   CLAIMS.  Hon. J. Fred Hume has introduced  some needed reforms in the department of mines. Heretofore niining  recorders and other officers of the department were in the habit of holding  mining claims. Hon. Mr. Hume has  ���decided that this cannot be allowed  and he has issued instructions forbidding-gold commissioners, niining recorders or their employes from holding  or dealing in niining claims. Properties already held by mining recorders  will not be affected by the new rule.  The Minister of Mines requires a list  of all claims at present held by officials  of the department. In the future such  officials will not be, allowed to hold  miners' licenses except to protect their  present interests. Gold commissioners in the future will not be permitted  to adjudicate upon the affairs of any  company in which they are interested.  STREET   WORK.  Work was started on Copper street  this week and good progress was made  in grading this thoroughfare.. The  grade between Government and Copper on Greenwood street has been completed. Greenwood street between  those two streets is likely to make one  of the best business streets in the city.  The track has been laid on Government street. With cars there the earth  should be moved very quickly.  If the weather continues favorable  the grading of all the streets should be  completed in three weeks.  But little work has, been done on the  -waterworks, the force of men being-  confined principally to street  grading.  Aid. C. Scott Galloway has .gone to  Chicago, being unable to secure necessary pipe at the coast cities.  REGISTERED   MAIL.  It is not generally known that registered mail for the American side can  now be sent almost direct instead of  around by the coast cities as heretofore.  A letter for the American side registered 'here may be sent to Rossland  and from there to Spokane. Mr. Bos-  tock made inquiries into the matter  and found that registered mail could  be sent this way.  City Debentures.  The Boundary Creek Printing &  Publishing Co. printed the debentures  for the street and waterworks loans  and the mayor and city treasurer have  spent several hours attaching their  signatures to the interest coupons and  the debentures. The debentures are  for $500 and the interest is payable  yearly. There are 21 signatures to  each debenture and 50 debentures in all  making it necessary for the mayor and  treasurer to sign their names 1050  times.   W. G.

To  a World representative  this  morning  Mr. Galloway gave the  following particulars in relation to that city and the  section of country which is now attracting so much attention,   both   at  home  and abroad, in consequence of the railway development which is now taking  place.    As  repeatedly stated  through  our columns, that  section  of  the  province is undoubtedly   a  very   rich one  in its mineral resources, and with railway facilities will rival, if not eclipse,  any other section at present before the  public, as a mineral producing district.  Mr. Galloway is one of  the   aldermen  of   Greenwood,   and  is   in   Vancouver  arranging for the purchase of pipes for  the city  waterworks,  which   sj'stem is  to be owned and   controlled by the corporation.    There is   at   present considerable work   going   on   in   connection  with  the  city, there   being  about   150  men employed in grading   the   streets.  A large dam or reservoir is   being constructed   a   short  distance   above   the  town, on a stream which flows through  the city.   The stream will prove amply  sufficient for all purposes for supply ing*  a population of close upon   10,000,   and  will prove to be a very efficient supply  for fire protection and domestic purposes. The water is of the very best  quality and the supply never failing.  Greenwood, as is well known, is the  centre of a very considerable mining  district, there being no less than eight  important camps within a radius of  six or seven miles, all of which are  tributary to Greenwood. The site of  the city is all that could be desired.  The valley is fully half a mile wide  and about 1)4. miles in length at that  point. It is admirably adapted for  drainage and sanitary purposes. The  present population is about 1,000 and  is increasing rapidly. There are excellent roads leading to the surrounding camps. The government road running across the mountains towards  Rossland is a good one and the traffic  is already considerable.  Mr. Galloway states that there are a  large number of men now employed in  constructing the Columbia & Western  railway, the first division of which is  from Robson to Greenwood.0 By next  June it is expected that the line will be  finished and a train service in operation, with cars running into Greenwood. By that time there will be from  eight to ten mines, producing each at  least from 150 to 200 tons per day, so  that the traffic is expected to be fully  1,000 tons per day.    '  Mr. Robt. Wood and Mr. Galloway  own four miles of the valley through  which the Columbia & Western line is  to pass, and they have made arrangements with the C.P.R. in regard to the  right of way, as well as the townsite,  so that Greenwood is practically a  C.P.R. town. The intention of the  management is to make Greenwood a  division point, which will ensure for it  a future greatness. It possibly will  become a great smelting centre, as it  is the intention of the company to erect  immediately below Greenwood a modern, up-to-date smelter.  The people in that section of the  country, said Mr. Galloway, are now  satisfied that the C.P.R. is in earnest  and is pushing forward its line from  Robson to Green wood with the determination to have it in' operation by  next midsummer. There is not much  farming done in the vicinity of Green-  Awarded  Highest Honors���-World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.  Pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder.

It is a rich country,  and in the years to come its greatness  and possibilities will become a matter  of surprise to those who are not familiar with that portion of our great and  glorious province.���Vaucouver World.

IS   COOPER   MANUFACTURING   COMPANY,   Limited  Branch Office, ROSSLAND, B, G  MONTREAL,  P. Q  JAMES D, SWOFD, Manager  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The regular meeting of the city-  council was held in the court house on  Monday evening. Mayor Wood presided arid Aid. Kerr, Paton, Barrett  and Phelan were present.  The minutes of the last regular meeting were read and adopted as were also  .-��� the minutes of a special meeting at  which it was decided to pay Mr. Wood  $1,650 for the improvements on the  dam and the cost of securing the water  records.  The street committee presented a  report of the money expended on street  improvements up to Saturday , night  last. The report showed that $2,970  had been spent in labor and material  . and $1,106.74 for cars and freight,making a total of $3,997.73 to that date.  The report was received.  A  general   discussion  took place regarding the work already  done.    Several aldermen and  the mayor severely  criticized    the   method   of   doing-   the  work.    They thought it  folly  to  haul  away so much earth from Government  street with wagons when cars and rails  were provided for that  purpose.    Aid.  Barrett  was afraid that the buildings  on   the   upper  side   would   be   unsafe  when the Government  street  cut  was  completed.    Mr.   Davis   who   was   appointed Mr. McDuff's successor as superintendent was then asked to give his  views, on   street  grading.    Mr. Davis  said that the grade stakes should be.in  place  so the  work  might  be  done  to  more advantage.    He   was working on  Greenwood street without grade stakes.  The work  might  prove, all  right and  then it might not.  Aid. Phelan then moved that the city  engineer make an, estimate of the number of yards already moved ; the cost  of same, the approximate amount necessary to complete Government and  Greenwood streets and that he be instructed to place g-rade stakes on all  streets at once. Aid. Barrett seconded  the motion and it. was carried.  The council then adjourned.  RAILWAY   CONST-RUCTION'.  Slowl}' but surely the railway contractors are sending- their army of  builders towards the city. Last week  they  were   grading- to the west of Cas  cade city ; this week they are beyond  , Grand Forks and are working their  way toward Fisherman Creek. In another week it is probable that the builders will invade the Boundary Creek  valley ;" Greenwood will be surrounded  with chattering dagoes and phlegmatic  Swedes.  The contractors are anxious to se-  cure the grade completed in the valleys  before the snow flies, reserving the  greater portion of the rock work for  winter weather.  Pat Welsh one  of the chief sub-con-  Ci i.  tractors on the line has secured a five  mile contract along the North Fork.  Welsh has a reputation for securing  the best of the contracts.  A. McDonald has another contract  near Hardy's ranch. He has already  begun work.  There are^over 300 men at work between Cascade City and Grand Forks.  The grade here will be completed within 60 days.   .  Fven if the contractors were not  anxious to complete the road, they  would be forced by the sub-contractors  who are moving farther west. The  contracts for grading at the eastern  end are being Completed rapidly, giving more men for the western portion.  Laborers are also pouring in from the  east and the harvest field so that scar-  city of laborers is   a  thing of the past.  Messrs. Mann, Foley & Larson are  building a hospital at the mouth of  Fisherman creek. There is some very  heavy work along the North Fork and  a great many men will be employed in  that vicinity.  GOOD   BUILDING   WANTED.  The deputy-commissioner of lands  and works has sent to the board of  school trustees plans and specifications  for a new school building and requested the board to call for tenders for  constructing- the same. After scanning the plans, the board very properly  informed the deputy-commissioner that  they refused to call for tenders for the  building- outlined. The plans show a  building- that would be scarcely creditable to an isolated rural settlement.  The provincial government evidently  cannot appreciate that Greenwood is a  city of some importance, and the public buildings  about   to   be   constructed  should be such as will meet reasonable  requirements. At present there are  over 50 school children in the city. The  number is increasing daily. The new  school building should contain at least  two rooms. It should be well lighted  and well ventilated, and should be architecturally a little better than the  cheap-looking buildings that do duty  in the majority of school districts in  the province. Fifteen hundred dollars  has been voted for a school building in  Greenwood. A fairly good building  might be erected for that sum ; in any  event it would be better policy to expend a little more than throw away  money on a building that would prove  nseless after a few months.  The education department has always  been slow in meeting the requirements  of growing towns. The paltry sum of  forty dollars is all that is allowed for  expenses in connection with the Greenwood school. For this amount the  trustees are supposed to supply fuel,  chalk and all necessary material, and  keep the premises clean. The natural  result follows. The trustees are always  in debt ; ordinary sanitary regulations  cannot be. observed, and the health of  the pupils is endangered. The board  of school trustees should insist upon  securing the erection of a suitable  building and also upon securing . from  the department sufficient money to  meet needed requirements.

OwwMKasw***^., j  " WASTE NOT, WANT NOT/V is a maxim that has undoubtedly been  reiterated in our hearing ever since we can remember anything/ We may  not always have attended to its teaching, but one thing is certain and that  is s  We  would  want  less  if we  did  not  waste  so  much,  It is a weakness of human nature, when we have made mistakes or  been guilty of some misdeed, to look, like the Ancients of old, for a Scapes  goat (Lev/xvL 10) on which to heap our wrongdoing, that he may be sent  into   the  wilderness  to  relieve  us  of  our burden,  We know, to publicly acknowledge our mistakes, It is more manly, however,  to bear them ourselves, instead of blaming the other fellow, The cuts in  our business have been and are deeper than anything we have yet seen, We  blame no man for them, We decidedly and deliberately committed them  ourselves, after due consideration, and we intend to stay by the result without  any intention of " filling 'in/' It will be your fault if you do not get in  and take advantage of this opportunity to get a good pair of Shoes, a new  Hat, a Suit of Clothes, in fact anything in the GLOTHING line, at prices  unheard  of in  this  section,  't waste your Money.    Get in and save a little at our expense.
