Prepared by George A. Gukss, M.A., aiiclJ. C. Haas, M.E., Greenwood.  The following description of Boundary Creek district  and the ores exhibited at Spokane was preparecl -for distribution at the Fruit Fair : / ;'  GENERA^ DESCRIPTION. ' /\.   >/���.', -.^ /....  ^TjOHE}  Boundary  Creek  district consists of that portion  jL��    of  British  Columbia  drained   by " Boundary  creek  which, flowing in a southerly direction/letaptaes into.  the Kettle river at Midway,   on   the  Interna|^fi^.^4irie/^f0������������>  miles west of Trail creek.    The  area,   comprising';over^O]  square miles, has an elevation above sea level of from 1,800  to 5,000 feet.    The hills are rounded and   timbered;throughout with pine, fir and  tamarack.    The   district  is 'reached,  from Spokane by S. F. & N. railway to Marcus,  103  miles ;  thence by daily stage, 55 miles, to Greenwood, the centre of.  the district.    A  stage  line  connects  with   the  C. P. R. -at  Penticton, at the foot  of  Okanagan  lake.    It  is  very   improbable that the district will  remain  without   a railroad  much longer ; surveyors are now in the field and it is  gen-  < erally understood that construction will start in the spring.  GEOLOGY  AND  ORES.  Altered sedimentary arid metamorphic rocks, occurring  with numerous eruptive 'porphyries' and 'diorites', flank the  basal granites, which occupy the upper portion of the  creek. The ores of the district are fairly represented by  the samples on exhibit. They may be conveniently divided  into : I. Copper ores ; II. Heavy sulphide ores ; III. Concentrating quartz ores ; IV. Free milling ores ; V. High  grade shipping ores.  I.���Of the Copper ores on exhibit, Greenwood camp is  represented by the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, Brooklyn, Ci-  monne, Stemwinder, Snowshoe, Rawhide, and Standard.  Most of these deposits appear to occur between limestone  and some eruptive rock. The ore bodies are wide, occurring  up to 100 ft. in width. The gangue is very basic, consisting  of calcite, specularite, quartz and chloritic matter, the silica  in the ore ranging from 7 to 30 percent. The average copper value would be at least 5 per cent., with about $15 in  .gold per ton. The Ironsides and Knob Hill have a 60 h.-p.  boiler, 4-drill compressor, pump and hoist, and are working  15 men at present.  From Summit camp, ores are to be seen from the " B.C.,"  Minnie Moore, lamina, and R. Bell. These ores seem likewise to occur as contact deposits between limestone and  porphyry, but are usually narrower, richer in copper and  poorer in gold than the veins of Greenwood camp. The  veins are from 5 to 20 ft. wide ; theore is chalcopyrite, with  ���quartz and calcite, and often pyrrhotite and magnetite.  Thirteen men are now at work on the B.C. ; the vein is 20  ft. wide and will average 10 per cent, copper. A complete  plant of mining machinery will be installed as soon as  possible.  Samples from Deadwood camp include the Mother Lode,  Sunset, and Buckhorn. Here again the deposits occur between bodies of limestone and porph3'ry. On the Mother  Lode the vein is 176 ft. in width, having been crosscut by a  210 ft. tunnel. The copper pyrites occurs with magnetite,  calcite, hornblende and quartz, with a good tenure in gold  and copper. Seven men are at work on the Mother Lode  and six on the Sunset.  From Copper camp are exhibited samples from The Copper, King Solomon and Copper Queen. These are large deposits occurring- between limestone and poryphryte, and  showing a width of from 20 to 70 ft. The ore consists of  chalcocite, cuprite and some native copper, occurring in  ���quartz and haematite and assaying 8 to 12 per cent, copper,  with small gold and silver values.  Wellington camp : Samples exhibited are from the Golden  Crown, Winnipeg and Calumet. These^veins occur in 'dior-  ite' and vary from 18 inches to 18 feet in width. The ore is  pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite, with considerable quartz and a  very high average gold value, a large proportion of these  ores running $40 and over in gold per ton. The Golden  Crown owners have ordered a complete equipment of machinery. The Winnipeg is about to start work and will  also put in machinery.  White's camp : Samples from the Oro and City of Paris.  The ore is chalcopyrite and iron pyrites in quartz, carrying  8 to 10 per cent, copper and $4 to $13 gold. Samples are  also exhibited from the Bruce and Texas, in Graham's  camp, carrying good values in copper with some gold and  silver. ��� ,��� ; ,���������'. . \,  II.���Of the heavy sulphide ores on exhibit are the Arlington, Morrison, Great Hopes, Aberdeen and Golden Treasure. These consist of massive sulphides, including mis-  pickel and pyrite and chalcopyrite. The values of these  are usually high, $15 in gold being an average:  III.���Concentrating quartz ores. These include exhibits  from White's camp���No. 7, Lincoln, New York,, St. Lawrence, Mabel and Jack of Spades. These veins occur in  schists and dolomite and vary from 2% to10 feet in width.  The ore is somewhat,varied, consisting of different metallic  sulphides in quartz ; these include galena, pyrites, chalcopyrite, tetrahedrite, and sphalerite, and assay values range  up to 100 ounces silver and $50 gold. '      o  Long Lake ores : Jewel, North Star, Lake View, Dinero  Grande, Electric and Rhoderic Dhu. These veins occur in  granite, mica schist and quartzites and are from 14 inches  to 6 ft. in width. The quartz carries galena, iron and copper pyrites, and pyrrhotite with tellurides of lead,' silver,  and gold and silver, and some free gold. Assay values  have a very wide range, but $15 to $30 would include general averages. Fxtehsive development has been carried on  all summer on the Jewel and Dinero Grande and ah adit is  now being driven on the North Star.  Providence camp : G. A. R., Springdale, Twin and Spotted Horse. The veins occur in the granite and are from 2  to 4 feet in width ; the quartz is mineralized with galena,  zinc blende, chalcopyrite and iron pyrites, and have high  gold and silver values.  The Crown Point, from James' creek, shows an extensive  body of galena, with pyrites and zinc blende, occurring in  limestone. A large portion of this ore will carry 20 per  cent, lead and about 20 ounces silver, with a little gold.  IV.���Free Muring : The O. B., occurring in granite in  Providence camp, and the Republic, Last Chance, Non  Such and Boundary Falls, in Smith's camp, occurring in  slate, represent some of the free-milling "ores of the district.  The width of these veins is from 1 ft. to 5 ft., with high  grade gold and silver values. Over 600 ft. of work has been  done on the Republic, Last Chance and Non Such. On the  Boundary Falls a shaft is now down 75 ft., and on the O. B.  is a 30 ft. shaft.  V.���Shipping Ores : The veins of high grade ore lie in  the granite or in its immediate vicinity. Samples are  shown from the D. A., Gold Bug, San Bernard, Skylark,  Crescent, Last Chance and Combination. These are narrow  veins, from a few inches to 2 ft. in width, but the ore is  high grade in both gold and silver. The quartz carries galena, zinc blende, mispickel, iron and copper pyrites, argen-  tite, ruby silver, and native gold and silver. Shipments  have been made from the D. A. and Skylark, yielding in  carload lots 300 ozs. silver and $30 gold per ton from the  Skylark, and $103.15 gold and 74.7 ozs. silver per ton from  the D. A. A shipment of 10 tens from the Providence went  $200 in gold per ton.  Besides the ores, the district furnishes coal of a good  coking quality. Analyses made by Guess Bros, give the  following composition : (1) Volatile 'matter, 28.3 per cent.;  coke, 71.7 per cent.; ash, 6.2 per cent. (2) Volatile matter,  15.7 per cent. ; coke, 84.3 per cent. ; ash, 15.4 per cent. This  coal occurs at Rock Creek, 12 miles west of Midway.  That Boundary Creek possesses unusually promising  mining investments is a statement borne out by facts, and  the increasing investments of outside capital show that the  fact is thoroughly appreciated. We want you to examine  our exhibit and then visit the Boundary Creek district, and  you will find nothing over-stated.

His  Worship  Mayor  Wood   has received the rather  gratifying  information   from   Hon. G.   B.   Martin, Chief  Commissioner   of  Lands   and   Works  that  the  government  had  decided  to  pass an order in council for the sum of  $600 to assist in the construction of the  much   needed  road   between   Summit  camp   and Greenwood.    The road   will  cost  about $1800 and   the  government  were asked to contribute $1200.    While  the appropriation of $600 is small, still ���  it is better than nothing and   the   citizens of Greenwood will do   what   they  have been doing for the past two years  ���building public roads by private contribution.    The    work   will   begin   at  once and before snow falls it is expected that there will be a first class wagon  road between Greenwood and the many-  promising properties in Summit camp.  The bulk of the trade of Summit camp  comes to Greenwood  now and the road  will be of the greatest convenience for  carrying in the large amount   of   supplies required   for  the many   men employed  in the camp.    It will also have  the   additional    advantage   of   going  through  .IHiolt pass,   the   lowest pass  through    the    mountains    to    Grand  Forks. .  Street Improvements.  It is-, remarkable-what- a  decided improvement a  little .money  judiciously  expended   will   bring     about.    Three  weeks   ago   the   principal   streets   of  Greenwood were in  a  dilapidated,'unbusinesslike condition.   I/arge stumps,  huge   rocks,   uneven   grades and rubbish of all kinds on the business streets  gave visitors anything but a favorable  impression of the enterprise of the citizens.    The Board of Works secured an  appropriation of $100 and put two men  to work.    To-day Government,  Greenwood and Copper streets are not an eye  sore.    The stumps and rocks have been  removed, holes   have  been   filled  and  other   improvements carried out.    The  expense has  been kept well within the  appropriation.    If larger works undertaken by the street committee will give  the same general satisfaction   as  that  already transacted but little fault will  be found.  The Last Chance.  Anew double-compartment shaft is  being sunk on the Last Chance, in  Skylark camp. It will be sunk to a  ���depth of 175'feet,, when it is expected  to strike the lode. Some exceedingly  high grade ore has recently been taken  from this property. There is on the  property an incline which last year  was sunk to about 100 feet; this year,  under the superintendenc3r of Martin  McGrath, drifting was commenced at  the 70 ft. level. The drift was run in  about 30 feet through the lode matter  without meeting with the foot-wall,  but a vein of rich ore from eight to ten  inches in thickness and widening- as it  goes down, was cut. Mr. McGrath received instructions from the company  last week to sink a vertical shaft.  J. B. Derosier of Greenwood is building the mining recorder's office at  ���Grand Forks.

Mrs. Galloway  and family went down last week. Mr.  Galloway will remain with the exhibit  during-the fair and g-ive information  concerning- the district. In this work  he will be assisted by several residents  of Greenwood. Messrs. A. S. Black,  W. T. Smith, Thos. Walsh, and probably J. G. Haas and others from Greenwood intend taking- in the Fair.  The exhibit was sent by special rig-  to Marcus on Monday last. The S. F.  & N. Railway Company made arrangements to carry all mineral exhibits to  the Fair on the 28th ult. The Greenwood exhibit could not reach there by  that date but Mr. .Corbin during- his  visit here sent instructions to have the  Greenwood exhibit carried free by his  railway to the Fair grounds. The exhibit was a very creditable one and  was much praised by visitors who saw  it before leaving- Greenwood. A full  description of the ores will be found on  the first page of this issue of The  Times. ��� ������  <��� ���'������,'  After the Fair it is Aid. .Galloway's  intention to break up the larg-e pieces  and send samples to Edinburgh and  other cities. Samples will also be  left at public places in Spokane. Two  thousand circulars descriptive of the  district and ores were issued by The  Times and these will be distributed to  visitors at the Fair. The exhibit  should result beneficially to Greenwood  and the district and bring- in investors  to examine properties.  REDISTRIBUTION.  Ah effort is being- made by the  g-overnment   org-an  to  explain  away   the  remarks of Hon.. Mr'. Turner regarding  redistribution at the last session of the  House.    The  Colonist  is   " authorized  to deny in most positive ternis   that he  ever, in   any  speech  delivered  in   the  legislature or  elsewhere,, said  that it  was the intention of the government to  defer redistribution until the  last   moment before the elections of 1898." The  writer of this article was in  the  house  at the  time   and  heard  Mr.   Turner's  speech referred to.    It was in  reply to  certain criticisms from Mr. Semlin because the g-overment  had  neglected to  include   redistribution   in    the  speech  from  the   throne.    The  Premier  then  distinctly led the house to believe that  the government   would   bring  down a  redistribution bill at the session immediately   preceding   the   election.     Mr.  Semlin and probably every other member of  the  house  so  understood him,  and we believe that it was with the object of securing such a pledg-e that Mr.  Semlin offered the  remarks  which   he  then made.    Mr. Semlin and the members of   the   Opposition   were   satisfied  with the pledge made by the  premier,  and it would be binding were  it  made  by any  other  premier.    At  that  time  Hon. Mr. Turner felt perfectly safe in  promising redistribution,   but  now   he  is apparently afraid of giving the people proper representation   and  intends  to keep the pocket boroughs until after  the election.  Mr. Martin's Promises.  The regard which the provincial government appears   to  have for Hon. G.  B. Martin's promises  is only  on a par  with the slight  confidence of  the electors in seeing these  promises fulfilled.  During Mr. Martin's visit here, he told  of the roads which were to be built,  of  the   grades  to   be lessened, of the hospitals to be  assisted,   of  the   appointments to be made and   of many   other  things which would bring satisfaction  to   the   citizens   of   Boundary   Creek.  Those who had some  knowledge of the  Chief Commissioner and of the government of which he is a member were not  overjoyed with the plethora  of   promises.    The  result  proves   that they did  right to largely discount the utterances  of the Chief Commissioner.    So far the  result has  been   to split the appropriation needed for the Summit road in two  and to give  the  people  of  Greenwood  the privilege of again overtaxing themselves to construct  roads  which ought  to be constructed by   the government.  Hon. Mr. Martin   tries to be a   modern  Barmecide.      He  seeks   to   make   the  hungry Shacabacs'  mouths water with  an abundance of good things arid when  they still complain of-any aching void  in the abdominal  regions, he would in  all probability produce something real  but his colleagues have so little   confidence in him that they usually ridicule  the promises which  he makes.    Boundary  Creek   would have  fared  better  had the attention of someone other than  the Chief Commissioner, been called to  her needs.  His Intentions.  Railway men as a rule do not care to  talk very much until they are ready to  act and consequently but little surprise  or disappointment need be felt at Mr.  Corbin's reticence. The people of  Boundary Creek were led by reports to  believe that Mr. Corbin had his surveyors in the field and that he was about  to push his railway system into the  district. Mr. Corbin does hot act  hastily. He counts the cost and considers carefully every step incident to  construction before making his intentions known.    Those  who   have   busi-  figliest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

Victoria Bonded.  Mr. J. P. Graves bonded the Victoria  claim adjoining- the Ironsides from Mr.  John Stevens. The Victoria is a promising property and Mr. Graves intends  doing considerable assessment work  thereon this fall  ed in the bond is $10,000  The figure mention-  A Mishap.  Ill-luck attended the mineral exhibit  from Boundary Creek district shortly  after it was started on its journey to  Spokane. Going up , the steep grade  above Anaconda, the horses, were unable or unwilling to pull and the wagon  went backwards down the grade.  Boxes were broken, big chunks of rich  ore went tumbling dpwn the mountain  side and the carefully prepared exhibit  was turned topsy-turvy. The teamster-  is willing to make an afridavitt that  every particle of ore was carefully collected from the mountain side and replaced in the wagon but it will not be  surprising if in after years some enthusiastic prospector searching for gold in  the locality will find wonderfully rich  float and will then make vain efforts to-  discover the ledge.  The Granite Greek Tragedy.  The latest report from Granite Creek  is to the effect that the coroner's jury  after hearing all the evidence brought  in the following-verdict :  "We, the jury empaniielled to enquire  into the matter of the death of James-  Hamilton after hearing and duly considering the evidence given in this-  case, do "find that James Hamilton  came to his death by a gun shot wound,  said gun being in the hands of Mrs.  Kuphemia Rabbitt. And it is our opinion and belief that Mrs. EHiphemia  Rabbitt shot the said James Hamilton  in self-defense."  Mrs. Rabbitt was brought before  Messrs. Sutton and Clapperton; justices of the peace for preliminary hearing on the charge of shooting James  Hamilton. The evidence taken was-  practically the same as at the inquest-  Mrs. Rabbit was committed to stand  her trial at Kamloops.  *v  .s\ ���  f'ir"  fir"  A convention of the Liberal   Party  of British  Columbia will be held in the  CITY   MALL,  NEW  WEST/MINSTER.

P; Graves, of Spokane, the  general manager of the Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill Companies, arrived in  Greenwood on Tuesday and spent the  week at the mines. Mr. Graves is well  pleased with the progress made in  erecting the machinery ; everything  being now in position and ready f or  operation. On Wednesday the work of  pumping, out the shaft was undertaken  and the water was lowered 25 feet in 15  minutes. A large bunk house and  other buildings have been erected and  during the winter a manager's office  and an assaying establishment will be  built.  To a Times representative Mr.  Graves stated that development work  , would be pushed on the Ironsides during the winter. Double shifts would  be engaged all winter. The shaft will  be sunk to the 200 foot level, crosscut-  ting and drifting will be. carried on  and the shaft will be lowered to the  300 foot level. Addition al men will  be employed as soon as the work  of drifting and crosscutting can be  started, g Mr. Graves has given the  ,. order for an electric battery for shooting and it will arrive in about a week.  This is an ingenious device by which  at least 12 shots can be fired simultaneously, making a cleaner and smoother  break than wlien the shots are fired by  hand.  Although the Ironsides has now a  well equipped plant additional machinery is to be secured. A compressor  will be purchased and a hoist and pump  for the Knob Hill. The latter will be  operated with air from the compressor on the- Ironsides. An " extra  boiler will also be purchased.  The ore on the Ironsides is improving, being much softer, and the gold  values improve. Mr. Graves believes  that the ore will concentrate and to  thoroughly demonstrate this ten tons  will be shipped to secure tests. Should  the results be as expected Mr. Graves  will purchase a concentrator while in  Montreal. He leaves for the east  about October 20th.  The eastern shareholders of the companies are showing considerable interest in Boundary Creek.    Mr. Miner the  president  of  the famous Granby Rubber Co., intended coming out here  this  fall  but   business   arrangements prevented.    He will   come   to   Boundary  Creek    in   the   spring   however.    Mr.  Miner is one of the biggest  shareholders in the company.    Mr.   Graves also  stated that at the suggestion of   Rufus  Pope,   M.   P., who  is   a  director,   Sir  Charles   Tupper   will visit   Boundary  Creek  and  look  over  the  Knob   Hill,  Ironsides   and   other   properties.    Sir  Charles   is  now  on his way   from the  east to British Columbia.    Mr. Graves  fully   believes  that  next   year   active  railway   construction   into   Boundary  Creek will be begun by Mr. Heinze  or  the C. P. R.    He was  pleased with the  substantial appearance  of  Greenwood  and as he stated he is anxious to see it  a thriving centre as his  properties are  adjacent.    Unless a   railway   is   built  through   Greenwood   camp,   they will  have to   bring  their  ores  down   by a  tramway to Greenwood.    All   business  connected with the mines will be transacted at Greenwood where all  supplies  will be purchased.

SATURDAY,  OCTOBER 2, 1897.  A   QUESTION   OF   PATRIOTISM.  A short time ag-o Captain Adams  wrote a long- letter to the Midway Advance, his theme being- railway matters. He sug-gfested that unless those  interested in the construction of Canadian roads or the government woiild  show more interest in securing- a railway into Boundary Creek district, Mr.  Corbin would build from the American  side. The captain held that there is  no sentiment in trade and that the people of Boundary Creek district would  hail a railway from this country to the  south.  The Rossland Miner doesn't  like the  captain's  letter  and   tells him so.    It  even deals in insinuations that do it no  credit and calls the captain unpatriotic.  It is said that patriotism is the  refuge  of a scoundrel   and  is often the   cloak  under which  the  newspaper  scribbler  attempts to conceal,hfs real intentions.  To our mind it is infinitely more patriotic to   advocate   the construction of a  railway from the American side whereby Boundary Creek  district can secure  cheap supplies and mining-   machinery  and an outlet for her ores, than   is  the  Rossland  Miner's  policy   of placing- a  tax on the output of the   mines in   the  shape of  an export duty on ore.    Captain Adams' policy if carried out would  result beneficial^ to   Boundary  Creek  and   the  whole   province.    The policy  which the  Rossland   Miner now   advocates,   if accepted, would  result disastrously to   the    mining-    industry   and  would  benefit   no  one   excepting-   the  g-entleman who has hired the   Miner to  publish   articles   that are repug-nant to  the views of nine-tenths  of the people  of   Kootenay   and   Boundar}7-     Creek.  Captain   Adams'     patriotism   is   of   a  much higher order than the Miner's.  Personally we rather liked Captain  Adams' letter. We were pleased to see  that in the mountains of British Columbia the military Englishman had  rid himself of the prejudicies which  usually g-o with him and that he was  not willing to see the interests of a rich  mining- district sacrificed to a question  of sentiment. He, in common with all  others who are interested in Boundary  Creek district believes we are as safe in  looking- for relief from the enterprising  American as from the hungry subsid)r-  hunting- schemers who are rich in  promises but who attempt nothing- until their thirst for public money is satisfied.  Contract for Cedar.  Maj,ror Wood of Greenwood and Thos.  Ha-rdv of Anaconda who own  valuable  and extensive timber limits on Christina Eake, have awarded a contract for  cutting- 500,000 ft. of cedar, and placing-  in a boom in the lake. In the spring-  they intend erecting- a saw mill on the  lake, and railway construction will  create a great demand for all kinds of  lumber. The cedar is of the best quality. . , :  Business Change.  R. Buckley has disposed of the harness shop and saddlery to Mr. Butler  of Greenwood and left on Wednesday  forvMyers Falls. Mr. Butler has removed the stock to his building- on  Copper street where he will carry on  the business. Mr. Buckley's store and  lot on Government street has been purchased by Georg-e McKag-ue.  A Daily Mail.  The: Greenwood postoffice has received instructions to send the mail daily to  Grand Forks. This would have been  done a week ag-o but the postmaster at  Grand Forks refused to handle the extra mail unless paid therefor. , The  postoffice inspector has taken the matter Up, however, and in all probability  the people of Greenwood will enjoy the  advantages of a daily mail seryice in  the future.  Annual Meeting.  The annual meeting- of the stockholders in the Brandon & Golden Crown  Co., will be held at the office of Mr. G.  H. Collins, g-eneral manag-er, at Greenwood on Tuesday, the 19th day of Oct.,  at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, for the  purpose of electing-officers and transacting-other business.  3     H.

Mr. Martin's Visit.  Mr. James Martin, a prominent hardware merchant of Rossland, was  among the visitors to Greenwood this  -week. Mr. Martin was formerly of  Vernon where he has still a branch  store. He was mayor of that town for  some time.  Mr. Martin visited Summit and other  -Camps and was pleased with the outlook. It is just possible that he will  open out a business in Greenwood.  Mr. Martin is a prominent Liberal,  being president of the Rossland Liberal Association. He is a skilled fighter and it was principally due to his  ability as an organizer and canvasser  that Hon. Forbes G. Vernon was defeated in Last Yale at the last provincial election.  Mr. Martin is in favor of the Liberal  party taking a hand in the next provincial fight, not to secure a party advantage but to have a strong organization fighting- for good government in  the province. The opposition at present are not properly organized and he  was afraid would not be unless under  new conditions.  Mr.    Martin   left   for   Rossland  Tuesday.  on  The Last Spike.  The last spike on the Trail-Robson  branch of the Columbia & Western  Railway was driven on Monday morning in the presence of man)>- spectators.  Regular trains are now running- from  Robson and coke is now coming in that  way for the smelter. The new branch  is 62 miles long.  To Sell the Le Roi.  It is rumored that an English syndicate represented by Fdgar Rathbourne  and William Hamilton Merritt, who  visited Boundary Creek a few weeks  ago, is negotiating for the purchase of  the Le Roi mine. Color is lent to the  rumor by the fact that Senator George  Turner and Col. Peyton, the principal  shareholders in the Le Roi, are leaving  shortly for London on business. They  are very reticent about what this business is but they will not deny that it is  in connection with a sale.  Messrs.     Rathbourne   and     Merritt  have examined, the mine and have  spent nearly two weeks in so~~d.bi.ng.-  The identity of the prospective purchasers is not known but the figure is  quoted at $5,000,000 or ^1,000,000.  A Runaway Accident.  Mr. G. T. Wells, a rancher living  near Midway was brought to the Greenwood hospital on Saturday last suffering "from injuries received through his  team running away. Mr. Wells was  driving- from his ranch when the team  became unmanageable on a steep  grade. The wagon was capsized and  Mr. Wells had three or four ribs fractured and was otherwise injured. Under Dr. Jakes' treatment, he is progressing favorably.

A provincial Liberal convention will  be held at. New "Westminster on  October the 8th.    The call for  the  convention has been issued  at the request of  the Iviberal   associations  by   Mr. William  Templeman, the editor and proprietor of the Victoria Times, the chief  I/iberal  paper of the  province.    The  object is to   thoroughly   organize   the  Liberal party throughout the province  and discuss any  matters affecting- the  Iyiberal  interests.    H}ach electoral district should send at least 15  delegates.  Liberal   associations  will   elect   their'  own delegates, but liberals resident in  localities where   Iyiberal   associations  do not exist are cordially invited to attend and take part in the  proceedings.  Some objection has been taken  to  the  holding- of a convention but surely it is  within the province of a party to  hold  a convention   to discuss matters relating-  to  party  management  and party  policy.    Interested   parties   fear   that  the  Liberals  may take  a hand  in the  next   provincial   election   and    consequently  the  advocates  of the  present  provincial  g-overnment  and  a few opposed  to  the government   who   Have,  axes to grind, denounce the holding- of  a convention.    As far as we are aware  it is not the intention  of  the  Liberals  to claim  any  party   advantag-e . from  any success,, which  may  attend  their  efforts  to   bring-  about g-ood   government in  the  province.    Conservatives  opposed to the present provincial g-overnment need fear   nothing- o from  the  Iviberal    convention." We   hope    that  E)ast   Yale   will   be well  represented.  Other  districts   in   the   province   are  electing-   their   deleg-ates   and   at  the  present  writing- it looks as if the convention   at  New   Westminster  will be  the largest and most representative political convention ever held  in British  Columbia.  Granite Creek Tragedy.  News was received here early in the  week that on Saturday, the 18th inst.,  James Hamilton a well known prospector and miner was shot and killed by  Mrs. Thos. Rabbitt. From the particulars received it is learned that Hamilton forced an entrance into Rabbitt's  house and attempted to assault Mrs.  Rabbitt. Hamilton is a big- muscular  fellbw and the woman in self defense  seized a loaded shot gum and fired.  Hamilton received a terrible wound.  Mrs. Rabbitt then soug-ht assistance.  Hamilton was removed from the house  and a messenger was sent for Dr. Sutton of Nicola Iyake but the unfortunate  man died early Sunday morning-.  Hamilton resided near Granite Creek  for a number of j'ears. He was mining- crazy but was otherwise thought  to be sane enoug-h.  The latest report is to the effect that  Mrs. Rabbitt is being held by the provincial police pending an inquiry into  the affair.  William Graham the proprietor of  the road house at Kdwards' Ferry was  among the visitors to Greenwood this  week. Mr. Graham with considerable  enterprise bridged the Kettle river at  that point arid as a result the bulk of  travel goes his waj', as the shortest  route to and from Marcus is by IDd-  wards' Ferry.

Dated this 9th day of September, 1897.    55-8  a  t'#i 1 Jrlfc  MR.  CORBIN'S VISIT.  Every resident of Boundary Creek  appreciates the necessity for railway  communication, consequently the visit  of any railway magnate is reg-arded  with more than ordinary interest. On  Monday last everyone told everyone  else that " Corbin was in town," until a  strang-er to railway matters would  almost suppose that Mr. ^Corbin was  some exalted personag-e who held the  key that Unlocked the floodg-ates of  prosperity which the optimistic Green-  woodites believe will pour in upon  therii in the not far distant future.  Mr. D. C. Corbin the president of the  Spokane & Northern Railway and his  chief engineer, Mr. Roberts, arrived in  Greenwood on Monday. They drove  in from Marcus, remaining- over Sunday nig-ht at Grand Forks. Mr. Corbin is a typical railway president. Well  preserved, dig-nined, affable, he quietly  drinks in all the information, he can  g-ather reg-arding- the resources of the  country ; talks intelligently about  almost every subject but imparts no  information that will give the people  any clue to his intentions regarding-  the subject in which they are most interested���a railway.  Shortly after his arrival in Greenwood, Mr. Corbin was waited upon by  His Worship, Mayor Wood, Mr. Martin  of Rossland and several citizens. He  expressed a strong- belief in the future  of Boundary Creek and even ventured  the opinion that it would be the greatest mining- district on the continent  within five years, but when a railway  was broached, he smiled pleasantly,  encouragingly, rjut did not take them  into his confidence. Instead he became  reminiscent. " It is five years, " said  he "since Mr Roberts and myself visited Boundary Creek. Our guide was W.  T. Smith, whohadthegrit to stay with  the country. There was but little  work done here then and we had to  drive deer off the Copper camp trail."  Mr. Corbin then discussed railways  other than his own. He would be  pleased to see the Crow's Nest railway  speedily constructed. It would mean  cheap fuel, the more general development of mining properties and the employment of a greater number of men  in the mines. Personally he did not  fear the construction of the C.P.R. ; he  favored it because he would rather  carry supplies into the mines than  carry ore out and when the C. P. R.  can bring cheap fuel there will be but  little ore go out of the country. It will  be smelted at home.  This led up to the question of export  duty on ore and Mr. Corbin expressed  the opinion that the last was heard of  this'question. The government would  let well enough alone for two years and  then the ores would be smelted in the  the province, when there would be no  necessity for an export duty.  "Such an export duty on ore as was  contemplated" said Mr. Corbin "would  not be encouraging to the builders of  railways in British Columbia. Not for  the reason that the ore could not under  such conditions be shipped out of the  country, but because low grade mines  probably could not be worked at all.  I would not care if I did not haul a ton  of ore out of the country,!-!", would prer  fer not to do so if the low-grade mines  of the country can be worked, as there  is much more profit in hattliiig supplies  into the country than there is in haul-  ores out  inasmuch   as   very  low' 'rates '  have to be given on ore."  "A mining country costs more to develop than any other and more money  is lost,and wasted in attempting to develop mines than in almost any other  business, hence as few restrictions as  possible should be attached to the busi-  . ness."  " It is really a matter of no consequence whether the ore is smelted in  the country or not, especially when you  take into consideration the fact that  for every man engaged about a smelter, it will require anywhere from six  to ten men working underground to  keep that one man going, and these  men will all be consuming Canadian  products. The bulk of the ores of B.  C. are low grade and it takes as many  men to develop a low grade mine as it  does a high grade one and these, men  are paid just as ���much wages and consume just as much supplies. An export duty is a direct tax on the product  of the mines and  they could not stand  it:" ... -,:..  ���Mr. Corbin congratulated the mayor  on the substantial appearance of the  city and upon the good roads leading  thereto but he refused to be drawn  regarding a railway.  He then visited Mr. Guess' office and  examined the samples of ores. He was  particularly pleased with the ores from  Summit camp.  A representative of The: Times afterwards interviewed Mr. Corbin and  found him quite willing to talk about  railways but not his own road or rather  prospective one to Boundary Creek.  "You have a great district " said he  "and when some more development  work is done you are sure to secure a  railway connection. Get your mines  in such a position that you can assure  me that you can employ: 3000 men  under ground and I will build a road."  "You assure us Mr. Corbin that  you  will build a  road   and   we can   assure  !you   the   3000   thousand   men   underground."  Mr. Corbin laughed. " Building  railways " he added/'is an expensive  business and we would like to see some  developed mines before undertaking  the expense."  "But, you built into Kootenay county  before they had developed mines and  the venture proved satisfactory to you  and particularly so to the people of  Spokane.".  "The Ee Roi and the War  were partially developed and I had  made minute inquiries into the possibilities of the district before building.  In fact I have now pigeon holes full of  assays from Kootenay properties,  secured previous to construction."  "Well, we can furnish you : with  innumerable assays Mr. Corbin and we  have some partially developed mines."  "That is true. Well, I am looking  round and seeing- the country for myself. We intend examining-some properties in the district and then going  down to Eureka. I .regret that my  time is limited and I must return to  Spokane by Saturday. I should be  pleased to see the whole of the district."  Mr. Corbin and Mr. Roberts went  with Mr. Smith to Copper camp to see  the King- Solomon and Queen of Sheba  both of which are owned by Mr. Corbin. He also visited the Mother Eode  and the Sunset.  Eagle  Mr. E. A.  Bielenberg- left  on   Tuesday for Baker Creek to   look   after   his  mining   interests   there,  eral    promising    properties  locality.

The Great Hopes Company intend  crosscutting the shaft at 75 ft., which  is now down about that distance.  Hon. J. H; Turner has left Victoria  on a tour throughout the province. He  will probably visit Boundary Creek.  Mr. W. J. Snodgrass of Okanagan  Falls visited Greenwood this week to  buy winter  supplies for his stage line.  Messrs. Murphey and Cross, two distinguished knights of the road, paid  business trips to Greenwood this week.  Smailes was voted to the chair and Mr.  Ross was elected' secretary;    The  officers of the company  were then elected  as follows :  President���G. R. Naden.  Vice-President���Thos. Hardy.

A new strike is reported on the Pathfinder mine on the North Fork. The  strike is about 250 feet east of the old  workings. The ore is copper pyrites  assajdng about 20 per cent, copper.  W. McCurrach and brother who own  several promising properties  in  Kimberly camp, rode  over  from   Rossland  c   this week and left on   Wednesday   for  Victoria.    They   intend    riding   their  G    horses to Hope.  The New Westminster Fair will open  on Tuesday next and will continue  throughout the week. While there will  be but few visitors from Boundary  Creek, this exhibition is quite popular  with upper* country farmers.   ,  Mr. M. Dickie, the manager of the  Bank of .Halifax, which has just opened  an office at Rossland visited Greenwood this week. He expects to return  to the district after getting the branch  at Rossland in running order.  Local surveyors are being kept busy  at present surveying mineral claims  for crown grants. Mr. C. 2Ei. Shaw is  at present surveying the Snowshoe  while Messrs. Kerby & Coryell are also  in the mountains surveying claims.  A private letter from Mr. Honey of  North Dakota who is one of the principal shareholders in the new Winnipeg  company contains the information that  he intends coming here shortly with a  view of commencing active work on  the mine.  County Court will be held at Midway  to-day. There are several cases to be  tried in which Greenwood parties are  interested. It is not yet known  whether His Honor, Judge Spinks, will  preside. Court will be held at Grand  Forks on Monday. :  Mayor Wood has bonded the Herbert j  Spencer claim in Deadwood camp and j  has four men at work. The Herbert \  Spencer is a most promising property j  and if it turns out as well as the sur- j  face showings indicate, the work of I  development will be continuous. i  The   attention   of   the  postoffice inspector is called to the carelessness and  indifference of the person in  charge of  the postoffice   at   Grand   Forks.    The  citizens  of   Greenwood, after waiting  for   months   to  receive  from the postmaster-general a service commensurate  with   the  importance  of the city and  district, subscribed $20 per month as an  inducement for the stage line to  carry  the mail  to' and   from   Grand   Forks  ���daily.    The  arrangement  appeared to  be  satisfactory   to   everyone  but the  post master at Grand Forks.    He refused to handle the extra mail unless paid  therefor.    The postoffice inspector was  communicated  with   and   that gentleman gave instructions to the post-mas-  ter at Grand Forks   to   send   mail   to  Greenwood     daily.    The   citizens    of  Greenwood  enjoyed  a   daily  mail for  two days when the stage driver  found  the postoffice at Grand Forks deserted.  After  spending   half   an   hour  in the  work of attempting to arouse the lethargic gentleman who has charge of the  office,   without   success,   he    came  to  Greenwood without the mail.    Whether  the post-master at Grand Forks is justified in demanding additional salary or  not does not concern us, but when the  residents of Greenwood contribute  the  necessary money to secure a daily mail  they can in   all   fairness ask the post-  office inspector to see that his   instructions are carried out.  It so happened that a business man  of Greenwood was compelled to go on  a business trip at considerable loss to  himself because he had not received a  letter which was held over at Grand  Forks through the indifference of the  postoffice officials at that point.

The Boundary Creek Times publishes communications on matters of public interest,  but disclaims any responsibilit\-for the  opinions expressed in this column.  Editor, Boundary Creek Times:  Sir:��� ���  ���In an article published in the Rossland Miner of the 21st inst, T have been  grossly and unjustly attacked as a  "blackmailer. The writer of such an  Particle is. certainly not responsible for  his acts, more likely a subject for the  insane asylum, otherwise he would  never have written ah article which is,  the accuser of blackmail, when the  deal referred to was none other than a  legitimate transaction, and did not  have the slightest vestig-e of a blackmailing- scheme.  The claim to which the article refers,  the "Plutonia," was not jumped by  Mr. Vaug-hn and myself, as at the time  of the location of the "Floyd " there  was not, any "Plutonia "to jump as  the title to that name expired at 12  ..o'clock midnight, Aug-ust 7, 1897, owing to, the fact that the assessment  work had not been done and recorded  within the year specified bylaw.  The claim which Mr. Vaughn and  myself located, was located on the  morning of the 8th of August on this  ground, which was open to re-locatioh,  as the laws of B. C. and the following  letter from Mr. C. A. ,R. Eambly, gold  commissioner, will fully explain :  Osoyoos, B.C., Aug. 28> 1897.  Mr. W. S. Fletcher,  Greenwood, B. C.  Dear Sir*:  I am in receipt of your letter of the  18th inst, and in reply I beg to advise  you that a mineral claim on which the  assessment work has not been recorded  within a year from the date of the  record, becomes vacant and, abandoned and is open to re-location.  I am sir,  Very Truly,  C. A. R. Eambi,y, G. C.  The records at : Midway will show  that the work if done was not recorded  within the year, and'Mr. Eambly's letter will certainly explain that our title  to the property was good.  After having the claim recorded Mr.  Fox, who had a contract on the adjoining property, the " Great Hopes," and  who as I then understood was to have  done the work on the " Plutonia," but  through an oversight of his he failed  to comply with the law. After having  this talk with Fox I told him I would  abandon my interest in the claim provided I received the money which I expended for recording, but as Vaughn  was an equal partner with me, I could  not transfer his interest and as he  found a ledge on the claim " Plutonia "  more than three months prior to its expiration he felt jastified in receiving  some compensation for his trouble and  therefore asked and ereceived the sum  of $75 for his interest from Fox, and  for which the charge of blackmail is  preferred.  I received not one cent as compensation for my interest and am loser of  the recording fees as Fox never remitted them to me.  In conclusion I will say that I most  emphaticall3rdeny the charge preferred  against me by the Rossland Miner, and  furthermore if the party or parties who  wrote the , article wish to go into  further details they can receive satisfaction.  By giving this letter publication in  your paper you will greatly oblige,  Yours Truly,  . '.W. S. FLETCHER.  Capt. J. A.

The reg-ular meeting-of the city cotth-  ���cil held on Monday evening- was but a  short one as there was but little business to engage the attention of the  aldermen. His Worship, Miayor Wood,  was in the Chair, and all the aldermen  excepting" Alderman McKenzie were  present. Mr. G. A. Henderson, manager of the Bank of Montreal at Vernon  wrote offering to take the Temporary  T/oan, interest at the rate of 8 per cent,  per annum. The bank'fe offer was accepted and the mayor and clerk were  instructed to draw up the necessary  note.    ������'"'���-.-���  Communications were read from  Mayor Houston of Nelson; the city  ���clerks of Rossland and Vernon, giving  information regarding- the floating" of  debentures. Miayor Houston advised  the council not to issue their debentures at a higher rate of interest than  six per cent, or for a longer term than  ten years. The communications were  ���filed, for future'reference. '  The brewery license question than  came up for discussion. While the  aldermen all denounced the turning- of  the brewery into a retail beer saloon  they felt that it would not be g-ood  policy to throttle an infant industry  with an exorbitant tax. The clerk  was instructed to notify the proprietors  that the wholesale liquor license tax  would be collected after January 1st,  and that unless the selling" of beer by  retail was at once stopped the city  would prosecute.  The Board of Works were given the  necessary authority to undertake the  repair of all existing- sidewalks.  Water Records.  Iveonard Norris, government agent,  and C. A. R. Iyambly, gold commissioner, returned from Grand Forks on  Monda3r last where they sat to grant  water records. There was no opposition to the g-rant to the Greenwood  Waterworks Company of a record to  the waters of Boundary. Falls and consequently that record was granted on  Friday night, Mr. Black who represented the Greenwood Company 'returning'home on Saturday.  The legal fight was over the power  of Cascade Falls. Mr. Gault of Rossland represented the owners of the  land who claimed riparian rig-hts and  Mr. J. A. Aikman of Grand Forks  represented the Cascade Power & Iaght  Co., who were granted a charter at the  last sitting of the legislature.
