GREENWOOD, B.C,, SATURDAY,   OCTOBER  22, 1898,  111  No, 7  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  "TTHE concensus of opinion among the members of the  municipal council at their last regular meeting-  was that better work was being done on the  streets. While serious blunders had been made  it was considered that with careful management in the future, the work outlined by the  specifications could be completed with the  amount at disposal of the council. Up to Monday $6,873.-  94 had been spent on the street ; the rails cost $685.39 and  the freight thereon was $343.95, making a total expended  from the street appropriation $7,903.29. The amount realized from the debentures was $12,880, leaving after incidental  expenses are abstracted about $4,500.  In connection with the waterworks, Aid. G-alloway reported concerning his effort to secure pipe. On Monday  night $4,881.44 had been expended out of the waterworks  loan. This includes the cost of pipe and fittings f. o. b. at  the factory. There ought to be ample money to complete  the waterworks. The council thanked Aid. Galloway for  his valuable services in connection with the purchase of  the pipe and fittings.  The finance committee reported the following bills?  D. McDuff, for cars, etc., $508.75 ; A. Fisher, lumber  $246.61 ; Pat Hickey, rent of scrapers $8 ; J. Corrigan, repairing butcher shop $17.85 ; E}. McDowell, plow $10 ; A. H.  Lawder, prisoners' meals, $2.75. "Bill for repairs on butcher shop arose from the fact that men employed on the streets  had been careless in blasting stumps and a portion of a  stump had gone through the roof of the butcher shop. The  finance committee report was accepted and amounts ordered  paid.  Mrs. lyarkin wrote to the council protesting against private families keeping boarders without paying license. The  letter was received and filed.  \ The hospital committee reported that they had interviewed Dr. Jakes who informed them that it would take $500  a month to run the hospital, exclusive of rent. The committee were thanked and discharged.  * City Solicitor Black advised the council to take no notice  of Mr. Iyearny's letter written on behalf of Mr. Mitchell,  protesting against grading a street through the mineral  fraction opposite the International hotel.  The council decided to lay 9 foot sidewalks on 70 foot  streets and 8 foot sidewalks on 60 foot streets and adjourned  after instructing the clerk to write freighters the rate for  hauling pipe from Marcus.  $6  ���Me.  CONTRACT   VS.   DAY   LABOR.  The Grand Forks Miner attempts to hoist an argument  in favor of the contract system out of an article which  appeared in the-Times two weeks ago. We cannot agree  with the Miner. While we are ready to admit that the  street work in Greenwood has been badly managed we think  it a mistake to charge day labor with the mismanagement.  The Miner is in error when it states that the work has cost  ol $2 a cubic yard.    It has cost too much ; but so far it has not  cost 79 cents a cubic yard, the lowest contract price. The  C. P. R. allows only 35 cents a cubic }rard for similar work.  The work on Government street would not be improved  under the contract system. The work has been done under  specifications furnished by the city engineer acting-under  instructions from the council and these specifications would  have been the same if the contract system had been adopted.  There are many other inaccuracies in the Miner article.  The ratepayers of Greenwood are not getting full value for  their money but they are getting more than they would  under the contract system. Before the money is all expended, the majority of Greenwood streets will be graded and  sidewalks laid and a system of waterworks established.  The Miner should not arrive at conclusions so hastily.  Mistakes were made at Grand Forks under the contract  system and the Miner criticized them. Mistakes are being  made in Greenwood where the work is being done by day  labor and the Times criticized those errors. One swallow  does not make a summer, neither does one failure prove impracticability of a system.  '/If  THE   KNOB   HILL.  Boundary Creek district can very properly claim the  biggest copper mine in the world. This is a rather startling  statement, but it is nevertheless true. The Knob Hill, of  Greenwood camp, contains a larger body of pay copper ore  than any other known mine. A tunnel has been run a distance of 340 feet at right angles to the vein. E^very foot of  the tunnel is in pay ore, and the wall of the ledge has not  yet been reached. Experienced mining men who examined  the property have been astonished at the immensity of the  ore body. Mr. D. W. Moore laughed incredulously when  told that there was not a pound of waste ore on the dump  from the tunnel, but after making a careful examination  he was forced to admit that the statement was*1 correct and  that the Knob Hill was by far the biggest property he ever  saw. The work on the tunnel is being- continued and will  not be stopped until the limit of the ore body is reached.  The face of the tunnel is about 150 feet from the surface.  "'li*  THE   C.P.R.    AND   MR.   CORBIN.  During his visit to British Columbia Sir William Van  Home had but little to say concerning the attitude of his  company towards Mr. Corbin's second application for a  charter. He waved the Old Flag occasionally and spoke  about diverting Canadian trade into American channels.  Reports come from the east, however, to the effect that the  officials and emissaries of the powerful railway company  are working quietly but effectively and that they intend  knocking him out the first round. Whether they can carry  out their intentions depends entirely upon the friends of the  Corbin road. If public opinion is sufficiently aroused on  the coast and in the east, to the importance of securing a  competitive railway into the Boundary Creek district, the  C.P.R. may resort to every expedient and artifice, but it  cannot be successful. At present the C.P.R. is working industriously to prejudice the people against the Corbin road.  A campaign in favor of the railway should at once be inaugurated. The people of the coast cities have been taught  a salutai-y lesson during the year, and it is not probable  that they will repeat their serious blunder of last session.  Indeed it ought to be possible to secure an expression of  opinion from the people of the coast in favor of the Corbin  road. The News-Advertiser, of recent date, very forcibly  points out that with the completion of the Crow's Nest road  and also the Columbia & Western, the coast merchants cannot compete with eastern merchants, and suggests that the  C.P.R. be asked to give special rates via Revelstoke and the  Columbia river. Now as this is purely a business proposition, it ought to have occurred to the News-Advertiser  that the most natural and advantageous route for the coast  merchants would be by the American roads to Spokcine and THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  :.���!.���:���  %!.���  '�����:, '������  7;J7  ;.'i  the Corbin system from there into  Boundary Creek country. This route  is now most extensively used notwithstanding the disadvantages of 65 miles  of freighting by wagons and Js^the^  route which ought to be agitated by  the Coast merchants.

" Oom Paul " has designed a novel  method for keeping the mines in the  Transvaal going, whether the proceeds  are sufficient to make mining operations remunerative or not. By article  140 of the amended Gold Laws of the  Transvaal he has enacted that when  the government deems it advisable, for  the public benefit, that suspended mining operations should be resumed, the  owners of claims shall be notified to  resume operations, and that failing to  so resume, the claim owners shall  forfeit   their   license    or    concession.  Perhaps this extraordinary legislation  may have the effect of diverting British capital from the Transvaal to British Columbia. If it does not, the British mining capitalist who invests of  his own free will in a country where  eveiw kind of monopoly and hindrance  to enterprise exist, in preference to  putting his money into a country with  such liberal mining- laws as this coun-  tiw has, must be lacking in ordinary  business common sense.  L,ast week a bod}r of rich ore was  struck in the 25-ft. shaft on the Waterloo, Camp McKinney. The ore is  streaked on all sides with gold.  Try the Bavarian   Salvator  the International hotel.

Mr. Frank Oliver. M. P. for Alberta  and proprietor of the Edmonton Bulletin arrived in Greenwood on Sunday  by the Penticton stage, accompanied  by Mrs. Oliver. Mr. Oliver who is  making a tour of the province stated  that the Boundary Creek district was  the most interesting part of it he had  yet seen. During the last session of the  Dominion Parliament Mr. Oliver was  a most aggressive supporter of the  Kettle Kiver Railway bill and the principal object of his visit was to personally inquire into the local conditions of  the Kettle river district. On Monday  he visited the Old Ironsides, Knob  Hill, Golden Crown and Winnipeg  mines and was astonished at the extent  and quality of   the ore  bodies  shown  him.  After   examining   for   himself   Mr.  Oliver is. more fully impressed with the  public importance  of  securing  cheap  transportation rates.    He has the very  highest  appreciation  of   the   fighting  qualities of the C. P. R. and   is   afraid  that unless an aggressive campaign is  at once inaugurated by Mr. Corbin and  his   supporters   the   application  for a.  charter will meet with a similar fate to  that of last year.  Mr. and Mrs. Oliver were accompanied by Mr. Geo., H. Ham, the genial  advertising agent of the C. P. R. This  is Mr. Ham's first visit to Boundary  Creek and the next C. P. R. folder is  sure to contain an interesting write up  of this section of the province.  The party went out by the way of  Marcus. They will visit the Kootenay  countrj** and return home by the Crow's  Nest route.  Strike on the Cordick.  Mr. Haas, E}.M., who is superintending the work being done on the Cordick  in Summit camp by the Adams British  Columbia company, reports that in  sinking through the fault in the bottom of the shaft a body of pyritic ore  (mostly iron pyrites) has been struck  which assays over $14 in gold. This is  a high gold value foi Summit camp.  Work on the Cordick will be continued  by sinking on this ore body to a depth  of 50 feet, when a crosscut will be run  to determine its width. So far 14 feet  of solid ore has been gone through.  Inquiries for all the best known  Boundary Creek stocks have been very  steady during the past week. B. C.  M. & M. are reviving while demand for  Winnipeg, Morrison, and Knob Hill is  calculated to raise the price of these  shares up very rapidly.  Dr. Foster leaves to-morrow for Cascade City, where he has received an  appointment as C.P.R. physician. The  departure of Dr. Foster from Greenwood will be greatly regretted by a  host of friends, but most especially by  the members of the Five Finger Club,  of which he has been a prominent  member.

Cascade City, Oct. 19.  Work on the Elmore claim has been  resumed ag-ain. The Elmore is situated on Shamrock mountain and is considered one of the best claims here,  having; 60 feet of solid ore on. the surface. The owners have four men at  work.  Pat Burns & Co. are putting- up a  slaughter house on the flat below the  town.  Messrs.'Bailey and Matheson are doing- assessment work on the G-ring-o  mineral claim, which is j^ mile from  Cascade City. They g-ot an assay of  $26 from surf ace rock.  Rev. Mr. Wallace of Gran-el Forks is  here today and intends to preach in  the school house, once a week.  G-eo. Ham of the advertising-  department of the C.P.R.   was  in  town yesterday. -  Hydraulic Eng"ineer Anderson of the  Cascade Water Power & I/igfht Company arrived last week. Mr. Anderson is now eng-ag-ed in making-surveys  and it is learned that work on the dam  will be commenced short!y'.  Police Constable Elkins came to  town yesterday and will reside here  permanently. " 'Tis a consummation  devoutly to be wished."  Dr. Shick is putting up a commodious residence on First Avenue.  A building- 50x60 is being- built opposite the postoffice which will be occupied b3'. a g-eneral store.  Iyots in Cascade are still commanding- a g-ood price.  Dr. Gordon, the C.P.R. medical doctor, is sick with typhoid fever. There  are 32 patients in the hospital ; there  was one death yesterday.  Another sawmill has been broug-ht  in by Thompson and Vinson.  WELLINGTON   CAMP.  Al. Sanderson is doing- assessment  work on the St. Elmo fraction for Mr.  Fred Graaf. The St. Elmo lies south  of the Jackpot on Fourth of July Creek.  The ore is principally quartz and  yields hig-h assays in g-Old.  Mr. J. Farrell is making- preparations to sink on the Buttercup. The  present 22 foot shaft will be sunk to 50  feet, when crosscuts will be run. Mr.  Farrell has already done over $1,500  worth of work on the Buttercup. There  are two leads on this claim, one candying pyrrhotite ore, the other quartz.  Good assays in g-old and copper have  always been g-ot from these two veins.  The assessment work has been finished on the Ironclad which adjoins the  Buttercup. A larg-e body of pyrrhotite  ore has been exposed.  The Palmetto, another adjoining-  claim to the Buttercup, is owned by  Van Ness and Burns. At present work  sufficient to secure a crown grant is being- done. Recently in the bottom of  the shaft some exceptionally fine looking- pyrrhotite ore was struck, similar  to that of the well known Winnipeg-  mine.  A] Sanderson is g-oing- to continue  work this winter on the Jackpot. The  showing- on this claim is supposed to  be a continuation of the Athelstan  lead.  The Molly Pritchard owned by P. B.  Nelson, of Nelson, Wash., and John  Buckley of Sandon, B. C, is remarkable in being- a lead proposition while  also carrying- g-ood values in g-old  and copper. Work will shortty be resumed on this claim which so far has  been opened up by a 25 foot shaft.  The Calumet has been surveyed by  Mr. F. M. Kerby for a crown grant���  also the Davenport, the latter claim  being-recently relocated.  Mr. Joe Taylor, the pioneer of the  camp, has returned from a trip to the  reservation.  Important   Decision.  J. Fred Hume, minister of mines,  has interpreted"' section 24 of the Mineral Act. Mr. Hume gives notice that  the phrase, " a free miner or company  of free miners shall be allowed to perform on one or more of such claims all  the work required to entitle him or them  to a certificate for work for each claim  so held by him or them," shall be construed as not applicable  to  a  mineral  claim for- which a crown grant has been  issued.

Those in charge of the blasting department of the street work are evidently determined to saddle the city  with damages. Last week the city  paid seventeen dollars for repairing  damages to a butcher shop. This week  sufficient powder was placed underneath a stump on Long Lake street to  drive a portion thereof through a window in Dr. Christie's residence. Sash  and glass were completely destroyed.  On Wednesday last two cars filled  with gravel and stones going down the  incline of the tramway on Government  street got beyond the control of the  brakesman and ran full speed down to  the dump. The man in charge escaped uninjured but the cars were broken  to pieces. -  Long Lake street received the attention of the grading gang this week. It  now presents a vastly improved appearance.  Lumber for sidewalks is being distributed along the streets on which the  grading has been completed.  Victims   of   Carelessness.  Six deaths from violence have occur-  ed so far among the workmen on this  105 miles of railway construction.  oL, When the number of men���3,000 to 4,000  T' ���-is considered, and their reprehensible  carelessness is understood, the number  is comparatively small. At least this  is the judgment of old railroaders. If  there is not a whole gang* killed,  through criminal carelessness, in handling powder, it will be fortunate.���  Brooklyn News.

OKANAGAN   MINES.  The most encouraging news that has  reached this camp for a long time is  the verification of the bonding of the  Palmer mountain mining properties  by the British America Corporation.  James O'Connell returned from Vancouver, B.C, last week, where he met  Governor Mackintosh and consummated the deal on the Bunker Hill group,  of which he is the owner. The terms  of the bond were $40,000, with 10 per  cent, cash, the next payment $6,000 to  be due in about 60 days, and the balance to be paid at regular intervals,  the last payment being due one year  from the date of the bond.  The JUeadville group owned by John  Judge, and adjacent to the Bunker  Hill group, has also been bonded to the  B. A.'C. at similar figures and terms.  There are six claims in each of these  groups, and the}7- are classed among  the best properties on Palmer mountain, and a large amount of development work has been done on them, and  very little work will be necessary to  place them in the list of bullion producers.  The B. A. C. will at once have these  properties surveyed, for the purpose of  having them patented, and will soon  commence developing their new acquisitions.  The owners of these two groups have  been working on them steadily for the  past  ten   }rears,    and have had   many  chances to dispose of them, but have  been tenacious in their resolve not to  sell until they received an adequate  price.  There are  many other g  ties on . Palmer mountain held under  the same conditions, and the advent of  this rich English company will undoubtedly direct the attention of the  mining world to this rich district, and  in the near future Eoomis may* be the  center of an exceedingly active and  prosperous bullion producing mining,  camp.  The big Palmer mountain tunnel has  penetrated nearly 1300 feet "into the  mountain. During the past week an  extra force of miners has been drifting  oh a ledge that was encountered about  a month ago. The ledge is about six  feet in width, and the ore taken out  has the appearance of running well in  gold, but not one outside the management knows what values it carries.  A new ventilating plant has been  bought for use inthe tunnel, and a 14-  ;p inch pipe has been laid from the portal  to the face, and when attached to the  40-inch fan no further trouble is expected in thoroughly ventilating the  tunnel and carrying away the gas generated by the large charges of giant  powder used. The plant being put in  is known as the Sturtevant ventilating  system, and when in place there will  be no better equipped mining plant in  the northwest than that of the Palmer  Mountain Tunnel Company.  On the Roanoke group of four claims  on the sonth side of the Similkameen  river, eight miles north of Eoomis,  owned by a company of Michigan City,  Ind., people development is being actively prosecuted under the superintendence of Captain Campbell. A tunnel has been run in 318 feet on the  ledge, gaining a vertical depth of  about 175 feet, the ledge varying from  two to four and one-half feet, between  well defined walls. The ledge is separated from both walls by two or three  inches, of gangue matter. The first  100 feet of work was through a decomposed reddish quartz, but as depth has  been gained the quartz has gradually  hardened and water was reached. In  the progress of the work a streak of  bluish white quartz was uncovered  from   two to four inches in   width  and  9  continuing for 35 feet along the course  of the vein, which produced an assay  of $3,244.87. On this"property is also a  cross ledge, the surface croppings of  which assayed $4.58 in gold. No wrork  has been done on this vein, but it will  be cut by the main tunnel in about 40  feet.���Spokesman-Review.  How the'C.P.R. Cinches.  Explaining the hindrances in the  way of doing business with this district, the manager of the Columbia  Flouring Mills, of Enderby and Vernon, writes us that the C.P.R. charge  the same freight from Vernon to Penticton, on car lots, as they do from  Vernon to Vancouver. Consequently  the Okanagan flour is driven out of  this market by the Washington flour.  The C.P.R. lobby cry, "Canada for  Canadians," is kept conveniently in  the background in this instance.  H.

BRANDON   AND   GOLDEN   CROWN.  W. E. Orde received a letter from G.  M. Collins, who is in charg-e of the  work on the Brandon and G-olden  Crown, in which he says: "We are  sinking- a double compartment 4x8  shaft. This shaft is vertical and does  not follow the ore body. At a depth of  150 feet a crosscut will be made to tap  the ore body. The shaft is now down  140 feet and by the 19th of November  we should be at the 150 foot level. At  a depth of 118 feet the formation  chang-ed from a hard diorite to a serpentine schist, mineralized with pyrrhotite of iron and containing- kidneys  ���of ore which assays $25.20 in g-old.

Kansas City, Oct. 17.���The earliest  winter storm in the southwest in 25  years   and   the worst early   storm   on  record almost completely shut Kansas  City off to-day from wire communication from the south and west and the  north. An opening- on the east, alone-  kept the city from being- totally isolated. It had been raining- for the past  24 hours. Shortly after midnig-ht last  nig-ht the rain turned to snow and the  temperature dropped perceptibly.  Steadily since then a heavy, wet snow,  driven by the strong north wind, at  points reaching- the velocity of a g"ale,  has fallen. Hundreds of telegraph  and telephone poles out in the open  have either been blown down by the  strong- wind or broken.by the weight of  the snow-covered wires. Railway traffic, while more or less hampered, has  not been badly interrupted as far as  can be learned.  Fruit Trees for Sale.  20,000    APPLE    TREES.  2,000    PEAR    TREES.

The Sunset mine in Deadwood camp  has been temporarily closed down,  Manager Macfarlane having received  a telegram from Montreal last week  instructing him to cease operations for  the present. A large amount of development work has been carried out on  this property. In addition to the tunnel a shaft has been sunk to the depth  of 182^ feet. When operations are resumed, a steam plant will be placed on  the property and the shaft will be sunk  to the 400 foot level.  Mr. Macfarlane leaves on Monday  for Minneapolis on important business  in connection with the Sunset and will  return in about three weeks.  Corporation of the City of Greenwood.  >v&     jie.     ���!���*��.  ?IP        ?tP       ?tf  Statement  of Receipts and  Expenditure for  nine  months  ending September 30tb, 1898.  Insurance Rates will not fee Reduced.  H. T. Ceperley, of Vancouver, a member of the Provincial Board of Underwriters was in the city this week. He  is making a tour through the province.  Mr. Ceperley visited Greenwood last  year. He expressed himself as agreeably surprised at the growth of the  town during the interval. He also visited the mining camps and was astonished at the wonderfully  large ledges.  Mr. Ceperley stated that although a  system of waterworks is being constructed, he did not think the insurance rates would be reduced. The fact  was that Greenwood had too favorable  a rate and if the city did not provide  an efficient means of fire protection,  there would be a strong probability of  insurance companies refusing to grant  insurance. With a good waterworks  sj'stem the old rates would be maintained.  RECEIPTS.

JAMES   COOPER   MANUI^CTURING   C^ Limited  IS/SOISBTREAL.   R   O  Branch Office, ROSSLAND, B, C, '      '     '    JAMES D, SWORD, Manager;  RENDELL   &   CO.  Messrs. Rendell & Co. have disposed  of their retail grocery trade to Messrs.  A. H. Sperry & Co. In the future they  intend doing-a wholesale g-rocery business only. They, will also , carry a  larg-e stock of liquors to sell to the  trade. This firm has secured a large  wholesale business and cater to the  trade from Penticton to Gladstone, B.  C. In the future greater attention  will be given to the wholesale liquor  trade. Cyril J. Eales late of the Windsor hotel has taken charge of this department. The firm will carry a large  stock of dry goods, gents' furnishings,  and boots and shoes in their new store  on Greenwood street.  Messrs. Rendell & Co. will also open  a branch store in Summit camp on  what is known as Chas. Rendell's  ranch. This property is centrally  located and a large trade should be  secured from the many mines in the  vicinity. The railway also passes  through the property.  SPERRY   &   CO.  Messrs. A. H. Sperry & Co. have  opened a grocery store on Copper street,  Greenwood. They have purchased the  retail grocery trade of Rendell & Co.  and intend carrying a large and well  assorted stock of groceries. Mr. Sperry was city ticket agent for the Spokane Falls & Northern Railway up to  the time Mr. Corbin sold the line to  the Great Northern. Not desiring to  continue in the position any longer and  having heard the most favorable reports concerning Greenwood Mr. Sperry decided to begin business here.  The firm is sure to do a large business.  NIAGARA.  A visit to Niagara convinces one  that a goodly number have considerable confidence in the permanency of  the town. Large substantial buildings  are being* erected, lots are selling freely  and there are numerous indications  that the town will shortly assume respectable proportions.  Jus1 outside the limits of Niagara,  Pat Walsh has built his railway camp.  It is evident that he intends employing  a large number of men, for the buildings are large enough to accommodate  over 1000 people. There are also other  railway camps in the vicinity so that a  thriving trade is assured for this new  town.  The Townsite Company has several  men at work grading the streets. The  site is a fairly level one so that but little grading is necessary.  Messrs. Shaw & Lawder have their  hotel building almost completed, as has  also Geo. E. Seymour. The greatest  barrier to the speedy erection of buildings is the lack of lumber. Sprag-  gett's and Simpson's saw mills are  running night and day but the contractors at Niagara find it impossible  to secure a sufficient quantity, of lumber to keep their men employed all the  time.  A daily stage is now running between Grand Forks and Niagara.  Mr. Staples is building a large store  at Niagara, 30x45 of hewed logs.  Applications have been made by six  hotel keepers for license to sell liquors.  W. M. Law & Co. have opened up  their branch store at Niagara. They  are carrying a full line of groceries  and dry goods, together with a fancy  stock of boots and shoes.  P. Burns & Co. purchased three lots  on Columbia street last Tuesday.  D. W. Hick's new restaurant is nearly completed. As soon as finished it  will be kept open day and night.  The Niagara Townsite Company  have eight men at work fixing up the  road between there and Grand Forks.  Messrs. Shaw & Lawder's hotel will  be opened on Saturday next for the accommodation of their guests. Mr. and  Mrs. West take charge of the dining  room.  Geo. 10. Seymour's hotel, the Windsor, will be opened in about ten days.  Tenders have been asked for the  erection of a dance and concert hall,  size 76x45. Mr. Peidereckson of North-  port is figuring on putting up this  building.  Two lots on Main street changed  hands Tuesday being sold for $200  cash. Mr. Young from Brooklyn was  the purchaser.   His Worship Mayor Ovens, of New  Westminster, has acknowledged the  receipt of the donation from the people  of Greenwood. He extended his warmest thanks for the liberal assistance  given.  A   KETTLE   RIVER   PIONEER.  Among the visitors to Greenwood  this week was Charles Ditz of the Upper Kettle River. Mr. Ditz is one of  the earliest pioneers of the Kettle river  country, being among the first to wash  gold at Rock creek. He now lives on  a pretty ranch about five miles i above  Rock Creek. Mr. Ditz does not travel  much. This is his first trip away from  home since 1888 excepting in 1896 when  he came to Midway to vote for Hewitt  Bostock, M. P. Mr. Ditz is hale and  hearty despite his 76 years. He was  surprised to find so large a  town here.  THE   RED   ROCK.  Mr. Geo. R. Naden, of the Bealey Investment & Trust Company, and J. C.  Haas, M. H}., have purchased the Red  Rock mineral claim in Greenwood  camp. They sold one-third interest in  the property to the British America  Development Company represented by  H. T. Ceperley of Vancouver. They  have put three men to work on the  property. The Red Rock is situated  near the Stemwinder and from present  indications it has one of those big  ledges which is a characteristic of  Greenwood camp claims.  THE   SAILOR   BONDED.  The Sailor, a Camp McKinney property, has been bonded to Geo. R. Naden, R. M. McEntire, Thos. McDonnell, N. Leplante and the British  America Development Company. The  Sailor was owned by Chas. Ditz. It is  a free milling proposition. The property is crown granted. Assays running from $18 to $300 to the ton have  been secured from the ledge. The  Cariboo ledge is supposed to run  through the property. The price mentioned in the bond is $15,000. Ten per  cent, has been paid in cash, $3,000 is to  be paid in three months, and the balance in six months. The same parties  have secured an option on four claims  adjoining the Sailor. Men will be put  to work on the property   immediately.  The city council is calling for tenders  for laj'ing sidewalks. The lumber is  to be purchased by the city from the  Boundary Creek Milling & Lumber  Company.
