Vol in,  GREENWOOD CITY, B.C., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1897,  59  No, 7,  THE     CITY    COUNCIL  TTTEGB} reg-ular meeting of the city'council''was held on  -r^eMonday evening- last, His Worship Mayor Wood,  T^p* presiding- ; all the aldermen excepting- Aid. Hamill  \^and Galloway were present.'  Alfred Flett, deputy Minister of  Finance  wrote  to the council enclosing- a statement showing- the  . ��& amount of taxes paid in Greenwood City up to the  9th of September last, on account of present calendar year.  The total amount collected is $200.62. Under the Speedy  Incorporation Act, the city is entitled to a rebate of $128,06.  Mr. Flett enclo.sed a cheque for that amount. The clerk  was instructed to acknowledge the amount with thanks.  A. Wylie, the assistant analyst of the laboratory of the  Inland Revenue Department, Ottawa, replying- to a letter  from the council regarding analysis of water, stated that  the time involved in sending- a sample from British Columbia to Ottawa, makes possible such changes in the organic  contents of the water as ma)'r totally invalidate the results  of analysis. The only proper wa3*' to proceed is to have certain critical examinations made on the spot ; the remainder  of the analysis, involving- the use of apparatus not easily  carried about, could of course be made in a proper W appointed laboratory anywhere. It was further suggested that an  application to the Commissioner of Inland Revenue mig-ht  secure the services of an analyst from Ottawa, provided the  city council agree to pay at least the larger portion of the  expense involved in such a proceeding.  The city clerk was instructed to correspond with a view  to securing more definite information on the subject.  The assessment roll being nearly completed, Aid. Phelan  moved and Aid. Rendell seconded that a Court of Revision  be held in Rendell & Co's. hall, Greenwood, on Monday  November 29th at ten o'clock for the purpose of hearing all  complaints against the assessment as made by the assessor  and that the clerk be instructed to insert the formal notices  in the B. C. Gazette and Boundary Cricket. Times. Aid.  Rendell seconded the motion and it was carried. Aid. Phelan moved and Aid. McKenzie seconded that the city clerk  be instructed to insert a notice in the Boundary Creek  Times, giving full information regarding the necessary-  steps to bertaken to entitle a person to vote under a householder's qualification.    This motion also carried.  Bills amounting to $73.71 including work on streets were  reported favorably by the finance committee and ordered  paid.  The schedule of license fees were reconsidered and  on motion of Aid. McKenzie seconded b}' Aid. Barrett, the fee for Iyoan & Investment Co's. was reduced to  $10 for six months.  Aid. Barrett brought up the question of the street being  obstructed by vehicles opposite the livery stable. The  police officer will be requested to inform the proprietors to  remove the same off the streets.  Aid. McKenzie who is leaving for the east was granted  three months' leave of absence on motion of Aid. Phelan  seconded by Aid. Barrett.  The city clerk reported that he had interviewed the attorney-general during his visit to Victoria and that the latter  had promised to allow the provincial officer to i>erform cit3r  police duties and that license commissioners would be appointed as soon as a meeting of the executive could be  secured.  The council then adjourned for two weeks.  Me.  i'te  ���5A-        's,f        ViC  THE   RAILWAY   SITUATION.  Dr. G. Iy. Milne has written   to   the  press   denying-   that   i  Messrs. McKenzie and Mann have purchased all interest in  the  Victoria,   Vancouver   &   Faste.ru railway charter.    Dr.  Milne was one of the principal shareholders in the company^  incorporated to promote this railway.    He took a prominent  part in the fiasco at Ottawa last session   when the   question  of aiding a railway into   Boundary   Creek  was  shelved for  another year.    It is onrv  natural then that the  doctor  and  his associates should seek to deny the  fact  that thejr  have  sold the  charter which, thej*- held for such disinterested motives.    I^ast spring these railway promoters called upon the  people of the coast cities   to   support  them.    The}*;   claimed  that they   were not   handling a railway charter   for mercenary motives but because they were patriotic coast citizens  and they were anxious to  see the  iron   horse  drawing the  wares of the coast cities directly to the  flourishing   mining-  districts-of'.Similkameen, ��� Osoyoos,   Boundaiy   Creek and  Kootenay, and   to  see   the  ores  of these districts   moving  coastwise.   The people like to be humbugged, and meetings  were held.    Public opinion strongly favored the Coast-Koot-  enay road and the local government bowed to  public opinion.    The act performed at Ottawa is familiar to  everyone.  Under the circumstances then it is not  to  be  wondered   at  that Dr. Milne should, deny   that   the  charter held for such  patriotic   motives  should  be  bartered  for  the  shekels   of  Messrs. McKenzie and Mann.  -^Notwithstanding the doctor's denial,, however, information conies from another source'and that ..information is to  .-the-effect that Messrs. McKenzie and Mann, millionaires,  successful railwa)r contractors, etc., etc., have purchased all  , interest in the Victoria,' Vancouver & Kastern railwa3:'  charter for the sum of $75,000. Of this amount $5,000 was  paid in cash and the balance will be paid shortly after parliament is prorogued next spring. Now we are not finding  fault with Dr. Milne and his associates for selling- the charter. We are glad that the3r have done so. Mr. William  McKenzie is president of the Toronto Street Railwa3r Company, a man of means and influence; his associate Mr.  Mann is a successful railway contractor. It is much better  for the district that the charter should be in the hands of  experienced railway men than in the hands of those who  know much about pla3ring dog-in-the-manger and little  about constructing railways.  The C. P. R. Company is in all probability the power behind Messrs. McKenzie and Mann. The latter gentleman  had almost secured the contract for constructing the Crow's  Nest Pass railway and they are known to have close business relations with the C. P. R. We were at one time opposed to the C. P. R. securing- control of the railway situation in the southern portion of the province, but since the  Crow's Nest Pass road has been secured by the company,  in our opinion, a short independent line would be handicapped. The onty course now to pursue is to see that if the  C. P. R. Company is going to build into this district, it  shall receive no public aid unless accompanied b3r such restrictions as will insure the people from '"cinches" at  the hands of a gigantic corporation.  If a rent were made in the veil which surrounds the movements of railwa3r officials, the fact would probabl3r be dis- ,  closed that the C. P. R. have an understanding with  Heinze. The C. P. R. Compaiy are the masters of the situation. Its officials stated last spring- that they were going  to secure the Boundaiy Creek trade and from all appearances the3r are rapidly clearing the wa3r. The3r intend  building from Penticton to Boundaiy Creek. They will  operate through Messrs. McKenzie and Maun and work will  be commenced within the next few months.  This arrangement will suit the people of Boundaiy Creek  but we fear the coast people will have to wait some time for  their direct road.  ���V*    .........     .._    .    ��� ��� I... ���������������������yi^fn ������_     ii j   n    uii       ii      i  j .i u 'nir.Tr""**"!

During- the past week there has been  a decided improvement in all lines of  business.! Outside of the big-mining-  deals which have already been reported, neg-otiatiousare in progress for the  bonding of some of the big mining  properties in the district. There is  also renewed activity in real estate^  Mr. Naden the manager of the Bealey  Eoan and Investment Company having-  closed several deals during the last ten  ' daj's'.  Among- the heaviest buyers was Mr.  Walter Stirling-, a Vancouver capitalist. He purchased the Jacobson  property on Copper street. This propel^ includes a lot with a 25-foot frontage and 100-feet deep and a frame  building. The price paid is reported  to be in the neighborhood of $13,000  cash.  Mr. Stirling also purchased lot 21,  block 11, on Copper street, for $450.  This lot is near the International hotel.  Two lots on Government street were  included in Mr. Stirling-'s purchases.  They are lots 3 and 4, block 15, and are  situated below Russell & Co.'s. hardware store. The price was $650. Mr.  Stirling; is also negotiating for the purchase of other properties. Several  Rossland parties are also seeking-investments in Greenwood.  A Large Block.  Aid. Moulton-Barrett has decided to  erect a large block on Copper street on  the lot now occupied by the Silverbow  boarding- house. The lot is centrally  located and Aid. Barrett has already  secured tenants. The block will be a  two-story with a 50-foot frontage and  rurmintr back 60 feet. There will be  two stores on the ground floor and  rooms on the second flat. Mr. A. B.  Campbell is preparing the plans for  the building- which will be neat in design and modern   in   its conveniences.  Leaving for the East.  Aid. A. C. McKenzie intends leaving  for the East to-morrow and expects to  remain away from Greenwood about  three months. The city will greatly  miss the services of Alderman Hamill  and Alderman McKenzie, both of whom  are careful business men with the advantage of previous municipal experience. Aid. McKenzie is a near relative of Mr. William McKenzie, who  has secured an interest in the V., V. &  E... charter, and he intends while in the  east to impress upon railway promoters  the necessity of according Greenwood  liberal treatment.  Mrs.   Rabbitt  Acquitted.  At the Fall assizes held in Vernon  last week, Mrs. Euphernia Rabbitt  charged ���*-*ith murdering James Hamilton of Granite Creek was acquitted by  a 'jury. The circumstances leading- up  to the trial have already been published. . His lyordship, Mr. Justice Drake,  presided. Mrs. Rabbitt was defended  by Chas. Wilson, Q. C, of Vancouver  and W. H. Whittaker of Kamloops.  Mr. Allan McDonald of Vernon conducted the case for the Crown.  .y^-^ ^.'fe7;^ :tfr.:gT..yv-'/.^?'.-��<������.:��� <> faJ:���<*������'��� ^-^J-'^-y-^^  ^|"t^\.:A^-\;;\^   <������.. -V>*L\   <.'.;V^  IF*3     YOU      NEED  Hardware,     Stoves,      Granite  and Tinware  CARPENTERS'   and   MINERS'   TOOLS  Ore   Cars   and   RaiIvS  "POWDER.

The postmaster at Grand Forks has  received further instructions to send  the mail daily to Greenwood, .consequently the citizens of Greenwood are  receiving- their mail regularly. Now  that the postmaster has decided to follow the instructions of the department,  we think that he as well as the postmaster at Greenwood is entitled to a  much larger salary.

Hogg of Montreal arrived  from the east last week and on Monday  last lie   turned  over  to Mayor Wood a  certified cheque for  $14,400,   being- the  amount due on account of   bond secured by himself and partner, on the Sunset   and   Crown    Silver   properties   in  Deadwood   camp.      The   owners   who  g-ave  the  bond and among-  whom   the  money will be divided are Mr. R. Wood,  W,   W.   Gibbs,   Mr.  Sctioefield, W.  G.  McMynn,   G.   H.   Brown   and   Walter.  D'Aeth.   , The  payment    of  the  bond  will secure a still greater confidence in  the mineral wealth of the district.    Mr  Hogg is a well known business man of*  Montreal   who   exercises   the greatest  care    in     making-   investments.    The  amount due on, account  of the  Sunset  bond   was   paid  only   after   the   most  searching investigation by himself and  professional  mining-  men.    The   Sunset   could   easily   stand such a test for  to-day it ranks among- the great, properties of the  district.    Under the management of J. H.�� Macfarlane's systematic development, work was carried on  during- the summer   months.    A crosscut from the 50-foot level in  the  shaft  shows up 12 feet of solid ore and  there  is   yet   no   indication  of  reaching- the  hanging- wall.    The tunnel  has  been  run in 300 feet and although the ledg-e  proper  lias not been tapped the tunnel  has been running- throug-h ores of g-ood  averag-e   values  throughout.     It   will  require only   /0 feet of additional tunneling- to reach the larg-e ore body.  The Sunset is situated in Deadwood  camp about three, miles from Greenwood. It is sure to become one of the  big- shippers of the district.  As Mr. Macfarlane is g-oing- east with  Mr. Hog-g- the work has been discontinued temporarily, but early next  spring it will be resumed. A large  force of men will be employed.  lii conversation with Mr. Hogg a  Times representative learned from  -him that he is so thoroughly satisfied  with the property, that the development work .will'be pushed on fully as  large a scale as on any other property  in Boundary Creek.  The Crown Silver which was also included in the bond and which is now  the property of Mr. Hog-g and associate, is a promising property running  adjacent to and parallel with the  Mother Eode. Good values have been  obtained from the Crown Silver.  During Mr. Hogg's visit last summer  he bonded the C. O. D., adjacent to the  Sunset. This property is also one of  great promise.  Mr. Hogg- left on Monday for Granite Creek where he is interested in extensive hydraulic works. He will return early next week when he and Mr.  Macfarlane leave for Montreal.

Even the most pronounced opponents  of the Laberal Convention are forced  to acknowledge that it was a success.  It was a representative convention,  nearly every section of the province  having sent one or more delegates.  That those present should pass a resolution denouncing the present provincial government was to be expected.  The-delegates- went to New Westminster not so much to exploit the fame  of any political party but rather to reason together with a view to perfecting-  the means of securing for this province  that measure of good government  which its importance demands.  It is true that some of the most enthusiastic supporters of the liberal  party were anxious to see a provincial  contest where Liberals would be divided against Conservatives, but the overwhelming majority against such a proceeding is sufficient answer to those  who held that the only object of the  ���convention was to introduce par-ty politics into provincial affairs.  The larg-er portion of the delegates  believe that good government in this  province is of greater moment than  party advantage and they ask that  every' elector, be he Liberal or Con-  .servative, should join in the movement  to secure an honest, energetic and efficient administration.  No Conservative who is honestly in  favor of g-ood government should stand  aloof from, those whose views are in  consonance with his, and no Liberal  should refrain* from joining in the  g-ood work because the majority of the  workers happen to differ from him in  federal politics.  The interests of the province are too  important to be endangered by party  strifes. In a few weeks a platform  prepared at New Westminster will be  placed before the electors. Its planks  contain principles which if carried  out by honest men, not designing-  politicians, will insure progressive leg  islation for the general people and no  special favors for the few who control  the present administration.  The only unfortunate   incident   connected   with   the   convention was the  conduct of J.. C. Mclvagan of  the Vancouver   World.    The   delegates    were  anxious to  return home   on (Saturday,  and late Kriday night a committee was  appointed  to  draft   a  platform.    The  committee    was   composed   of   ID.   P.  Davies,   Vancouver,   chairman;   Wm.  Templeman, Victoria ;  A. ID.   Howse,  Nicola ; Duncan Ross, Greenwood; Jas.  McQueen, Vancouver ;    Geo. Kenned}'  of the   New   Westminster   Columbian,  H. McCutcheon,   Rossland,   and  J.   C."  MoLVagau, Vancouver.    Mr. Mcl^ag-an  refused  to  attend  the  meeting of the  committee who spent nearly  the whole  of the' inight  preparing   the   platform.  It can readily be  seen   that a platform  so hurriedly   prepared  -was not so perfect in phraseology as was desired and  ���consequently .all  the   newspaper   men  present, Mr. Mclyagan included, pledged, themselves not   to  publish the platform ' until   it   received   the finishing  touches   from    the   executive.    Every  newspaper man  kept  that  pledge excepting  Mr.   Mclyagan.    In  the  Vancouver       World     of      the       evening  of      the    day     on   which.''   Mr.     Mclyagan  made  the  pledg-e   appeared an  emasculated    platform   to   which   the  World makes sneering references.  The act was a dishonorable one but it  was characteristic of the man who,  while prating about his fealty; to Liberal principles, has been feeding from  the fleshpots of a government whose  policy wras opposed to every principle  of Liberalism.

Greenwood was partially depopulated for nearl}-- two weeks during- the  Fruit Fair, but the visitors began returning- home on Saturday last and  now there are but few Green woodites  in Spokane. The first contingent arrived bv stage on. Saturdav and includ-  ed A. S. Black and Thos. Walsh. T.  McDonnell and J. C. Haas returned by  private conve3rance the same day. The  Misses   McDonald  also   returned   last  week. On Sunday Johnnie Snodgrass  - and C. B. Comstock were .among the  arrivals and Tuesdaj'-'s stag-e brought  in Aid. C. Scott Galloway, wife and  family, W. T. Smith and Frank Good-  enyear. They all brought back the  same report, that a Fruit Fair is an excellent place to ew^oy one's self and  that Spokane is the right place to hold  a Fruit Fair.  Aid. Galloway is now an orator of no  mean repute. Before leaving for Spokane he could eloquently denounce the  iniquity of restricting trade by the imposition of licenses, but having had  charge of the Boundary Creek exhibit  at the Fair his conversational powers  were put to a severe test so many were  the inquiries made by mining men and  others regarding the district which  sent such a wonderful collection of  ores that the Alderman was kept busy  giving information from early morii.  until ten o'clock at night.  The exhibit is sure to result advantageously to the district. Experienced  mining men showed the greatest interest in the exhibit. Mr. Armstrong- the  manager of the mineral department  was greatly pleased with it and he  secured the entire exhibit to send to  eastern and European cities. The  balance of the circulars, issued by the  Boundary Creek Times were secured'  b3^ Mr. Armstrong and these will also  be distributed by him.  Manager Bolster on behalf of the  directors presented Aid. Galloway with  a unique medal for himself and one for  the superior mineral exhibit.

The first thing which   strikes a visitor    to   Fairview   is   the   remarkable  effort its   denizens   have made to  hide  themselves in the mountains.    Instead  of  building  their  houses  on the open  bench  of   land   that   appeared   to  be  placed there  for the special purpose of  turning   it into   a   townsite,   the   residents of Fairview began  building in a  narrow gulch ;  house  after house  was  erected still farther up this narrow   indenture in the mountain   until now the  three   miles   of  town   reminds  one  of  Euclid's definition   for   a  line���length  without breadth.    After the houses are  built   there   is so little room left in the  gulch that'the. only street in  the  town  hugs the opposite side very closely and  in so me   spots   s til 1  n arro wer th an; th e  average, the street had to be  cut from  the  mountain   side.    Such   a   narrow  city   is not without at least one advantage.    The   people   of Greenwood will  remember Fred Elkins.    Elkins  has a  penchant for meddling with the affairs  of other people���provided other people's  affairs are not in accordance  with   the  criminal   code,   the   regulations  of the  provincial    board    of    health  or     the  vagrancy   act.    Mr.   Elkins  venerates  the vagrancy act and takes advantage  Of its,provisions on every possible occasion.    Elkins almost  rusted at Greenwood.    The people here were so orderly  that  he  had  but  little  scope  for  his  remarkable capacity, so  Fred Hussey,  , the superintendent of Provincial Police,  took pity on him and   transferred him  to   Fairview.    When  he   went   there,  Fairview was considered the   toughest  mining town in British Columbia.    To  day it is one of  the   most orderly.    Of  course,   Elkins  must   be held accountable for this change but then the peculiar plan upon which the town was built  helped  him materially.    There was no  escape from the provincial officer.    The  steep hills   were   to   the  right and left  and behind ; there are no by-streets  or  alleys;   no   backyards   by,   which    an  escape could be made ; alia man   could  do was to wait for  the officer and take  his   medicine.    It is   stated that at one  point the town is so  narrow  that  persons  meeting  each   other have  to go  through   the same manoevures  as the  " Two Kind Goats" mentioned  in the  school books.  But if Fairview is narrow, it is for-  tunate in having citizens of broad  views and large enterprise. It owes  its existence in a measure to the firm  of Dier, Davidson & Russell whose enterprise have made it known all over  the continent. This firm have started  a town oh the level bench referred to  and in a short time " the gulch " will  be a thing of the past. In the new  town several substantial buildings  have been erected. Conspicuous among  these is the large three-story hotel  erected by Dier, Davidson & Russell.  This building is ranidlv nearing com-  pletion and is by long odds the finest  hotel building- in Southern Yale. It is  n-.,t onlv built to accomodate a large  number of guests but it is as well a  handsome structure that would attrar+  attention      anywhere.       The      Cosens  Brothers have a store on the new town-  site and are doing a thriving business.  Other buildings are in the course of  construction including offices for Dier,  Davidson & Russell.  The growth of the town necessarily  depends on the character of the mining  district surrounding it and if the enthusiasm of prospectors, mine owners  and speculators is any indication, Fair-  view will shortly be a large and flourishing city.  Possibly never in the history of mining  did  the  general  public display a  greater greed for mining stock than in  the   case  of the Tin Horn.    This company was   organized by Messrs.   Dier,  Davidson & Russell and before a pound  of ore was treated, before the mill was  erected,   orders  came  from   the   east,  from   the   coast,   from every  city, for  thousands   01  shares,   more  than   the  company  had  to give.    The company  were threatened with several  lawsuits  because  they  failed   to fill the  orders  which came  pouring, in,    The  shares  were  issued at par, 25 cents, about  six  months ago, and to-day they   are   selling at $1.70.    Of course the speculative  public are much like a  flock  of  sheep  and where one plunges the rest are sure  to  follow,   but the   Tin Horn propert3r  has been  examined by  experts  representing  eastern shareholders  and the  reports   are   always    favorable.    The  property of the company  includes   the  Tin    Horn,   Big-   Horn   and   Fortune  claims.    A 16-stamp mill has been purchased from  the Joshua  Hendry   Co.,  of San Francisco, and   two   expert mechanics are  busy  getting it   into position.    Crushing will  begin about November 1.   ���  Messrs. Dier, Davidson & Russell  have also organized the Winchester  company. They recently purchased  from Messrs. Sheen an and Watkin the  Sfemwinder claim adjoining the Winchester. This promising property has  been added to the Winchester group  and there is the same remarkable demand for these shares as for those of  the Tin Horn Company.  The Smuggler and other  companies,  are also carrying on active operations.  The Smugg-ler Company obtained good  results   from   the   ore   crushed in the  StratheyreGniill.  Mining men are coming to Fairview  in large numbers and while they are  unanimous in the opinion that the mineral showings are excellent they are  equally unanimous in declaring that  the whiskey is bad and the hotel accommodations execrable.  An office building is being erected  for Mr. Furness (formerly of Greenwood) and Mr. Parkinson. They will  carry on, a real estate, insurance and  brokerage business. Mr. C. DeB.  Green, P. E. S., will also make this  office his headquarters. .  Water pipes have been laid from up  the gulch to the new townsite. The  water is carried a distance of \% miles,  from a live spring- bubbling- out of the  mountain side. The pressure will be  sufficient for fire protection.  Mrs. Fred Shonquist returned to  Greenwood on Saturda}7, after visiting  Butte and other cities.

Were it not for the fact that the land  grabber secured control   of  the  valley  leading to Osoyoos lake, it could to-day-  be peopled with at  least  100  families.  ,.."' Situated only 1,000 feet above   the   sea  level, and   being  in  the   track  of  the  warm   current   of   air    which    comes  northwards .. through.': ��� .the     Okanagaii  valley, it is climaticallj'' an   ideal   spot  to live in.    The soil  is   asandy   loam  and with irrigation'would  produce, almost   every   variety    of   fruits���even  '"���fruits'which are supposed to ripen only  "in the  sunny   south.    But  to-da}'   this,  valley is as barren.as the sands of  the  ' Sahara, save the portions  which   have  been   brought   under    cultivation    by  Mine Host Kruger and , Mr.   C.   A.   R.  Iyambly, g-old commissioner.    The rest  of. the valley, up to Fairview  even, belong-s to Mr. Fdlis, and his  cattle roam  over it at will.    No more striking commentary,   on   the  methods   adopted   of  disposing- of public lands can be .found  th an the deserted  appearance  of  Oso-  3**oos valley.    Here families could   live  in comfort,  in   an  almost   perfect  climate, with exquisite   scenery, with   an  abundance of g-ame, convenient to the  best markets for   produce ; but the settlers must eke   out. a   miserable  existence on   some   barren mountain  side,  while fruitful 'lands are tied up   in   the  ' hands of a cattle   king-.    An   equitable  system   of taxation   would   force   the  owner of the greater portion of Osoyoos  valkw to pay a rate of taxation'as high  as that paid on the farms in the Fraser  - -.river,'valley: ��� but  it. is   safe   to   wager  that lie. does   not   pay   one-tenth   that  amount.  :     The writer wondered   how   Mr. Kru-  g-er secured his acres at the head of the  lake.    One would come to   the   conclusion that a g-overnment was extremely  derelict in its duty to the land grabber  when  it allowed   a   big-hearted native  of the Fatherland to cultivate a modest  number of acres in a g-arden  of   iOclen.  But the explanation is   a   simple   one.  Some 40 3rears ago .Mr,  Krug-er dreamt  of this ideal spot in   British   Columbia  and   having  some   knowledg"e   of   the  avidity which the best lands are secured by the speculators,   he bid g-ood-bye  to Bismarck and sailed in a  g-ood  ship  round the  Horn   and reached  British  Columbia.    He traveled   inland to Osoyoos Xake -ahd   secured   his   piece   of  land.    Had he arrived a few \rears later  he   would   have    been     disappointed.  When an accurate and detailed history  of the province is written in all proba-   j  bi'lity a p:ige will be devoted to   the in-   ������  dignant  protests   made  when   it   was   I  found   that   a  few acres at the head of   j  Osoyoos L/ake had become the property. !  of an   expatriated  German.    The land   ;  should have been   reserved   for   Judg-e  Haines' cattle.  The tired traveler who reaches  Krtigers thanks his stars that the host  g-ot there before the. land grabber. It  is like an oasis in the desert. The "I  am pleased to see you," and " my wife  and I were just talking about you "followed by a meal that would satisfy an  epicure would be all missing- if Krug-er   hadn't  come   to   Osoyoos Lake 40  years ago. Instead of a comfortable  home, a genial host, and the best of  fare, the traveler would be greeted by  an insolent Shorthorn -who would question his right to gaze upon the beauties  of Osoyoos Ivake.  This is a.wonderful province and its  land laws are still' more wonderful.  Nelson  vs. McLaren.  Hon. O. B. Nelson, of Nelson, Wash.,  returned on Saturday last from Ver-  nOn where he attended the court of assize. Mr. Nelson was an interested  ���.party in the case of. Nelson vs. M.c-  Ivaren. Mr. E}. P. Davis and F. Billings appeared for Mr. Nelson and Chas.  Wilson, Q.C., for the defence.  This was. an action br'oug-fit for  breach of contract in the con,ve\rance  of certain lot's in the town of Carson.  An -argument of considerable length  took place between Messrs. Davis and  Wilson as to the amendment of the  plaintiff's plea. The amendment was  allowed. It appears that the defendants agreed to convey an acre of land  to Mr. Nelson, a merchant doing business on the Colville reservation, in  Washington, on the condition that he  built a' store on the Carson townsite,���  which lies immediately north of the international boundary. Mr. Nelson  built this store so that half of it was  on the American side of the line, and  half in British Columbia. It further  appeared that! John and Donald McLaren, who made the agreement, did  not possess the land, the crown grant  being issued to James McL/aren. The  matter was referred by His Lordship  to Judg-e Spinks for valuation-of damages and assessment of costs. .      ���  The   Railway Survey.  After the article in reference to the  survey of the Columbia' & Western  railway was written Engineer Sullivan  and part}' arrived in Greenwood on  Friday morning. They completed the  preliminary survey to the mouth of  Boundary Creek, running the line to  that point from Rock Creek a distance  of thirteen miles in two days. The  route along the Kettle river throughout this distance is almost level and  consequently no engineering difficulties will present themselves there.  *  Mr. Sullivan decided that as the season for snow is fast approaching it  would be wiser to get the work done  first on the higher altitudes, conse-r  quently he moved his camp on Friday  afternoon to Pass Creek and will work  down from there to the mouth.of Boundary. He has had recently advices  from the Farr party and he expects to  meet them at Cascade Citv.  THE   C.P.R.'3   INTENTION.  The News - Advertiser, Vancouver,  publishes an interview with Sir William Van Home, president of the  C.P.R. Company. The portion which  relates to the Boundaiw Creek district  follows : ���  " You may have seen Sir William  that the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern Railway charter, has to a large extent been   taken   over   bv Messrs. Mc  Kenzie and Mann. Have the C. P. R.  any connection with these gentlemen?"  " We have nothing to do with them  whatever, but we intend to build our  own line between Robson and the Fraser Valley whatever anybody else may  do. Just when it will.be done I cannot  say at this time."  "Then you will go through the Boundary Creek county���?"  "The line from Robson to Hope must  pass through..���the Boundary Creek  country" said Sir William.   ,.  The Foresters have arranged an. excellent programme for their concert, to  be given shortly.  From, the notice re municipal electors published in this issue, it will be  seen that householders must be residents of Greenwood 12 months preceed-  ing Nov. 1st, 1897, before they can  qualify as voters. As Greenwood is  scarcely more than a year old, the  number of voters at -the next municipal  election will necessarily be small.  ��        ��       9  WiLLS' Famous " Navy Cut"  and    " Traveller"    Tobaccos.

In summer when the  water is low, crossing- the stream with  heavy loads of -freig-ht is a serious matter ; but during- the fall and spring-  months, when the water* rushes down  from the mountains, freighters are in  danger of losing- their own lives and  those of their horses.  We understand that the government  appreciates the necessity for a bridg-e  here, but owing to the extensive  river bed at this���,point, the work of  building- a bridg-e of a permanent character will involve a large, expenditure  of money. The necessit3!* for the  bridge is so great, however, that the  question of expense sho Id not delay  'matters. Such a dangerous crossing  on a road so extensively used as the  one to Penticton should be bridged at  any cost.  The government should also grant  the prayer of the petition of those asking- for a bridg-e across the West Fork  of the Kettle river. The mining interests of the district up to the West Fork .���'  are of considerable importance and a  means of reaching the district without  fording the river should be provided.  Louis Blue.  A.

In  Vancouver, a prominent upper countiw  Iviberal brought the same Mr. Mclyag--  an to task for breaking the promise  which he so publicly made and Mr. Mc-  Ivagan's reply was that he was very  sorry that the niatter had been published but that it had been inserted in the  World without his knowledg-e. The  mantle of Ananias has fallen ,ttpon  wortli3'* shoulders.  The Northport Bridge.  The Red Mountain railway bridge  across the Columbia river at Northport  has been tested for traffic The bridge  was tried by backing- threerloaded coal  cars and four fiat cars of stone -oushed  by a 100-ton engine and a SO-ton engine  over the reservation side. The bridge-  is of wood and iron six spans in length  and the total distance across is 2000 ft.  The contract for the construction was  let to the San Francisco Bridg-e Company in January last with the time  limit that it should be ready for operation June 1st. The high water in the  .Columbia came 30 days earlier than  usual and the company was obliged to  abandon construction until the low  water this fall, with the bridg-e about  two-thirds completed.  It is-' reported that a. deal has been  closed whereby the Cariboo Company  of Camp McKinney secures a two-third  interest in the Okanagan claim adjoining the Cariboo. The price paid to  Messrs. Steve Mangott and D. Mc-  Eclieran is said to be $10,000. The  other third is retained by John Moran  the original locator.  1MUL.LS    'AND      YARDS     AT  Greenwood  %r".
