Vol, III.  GREENWOOD CITY, B.C., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1897.  60  No. 8,  WHAT   THE   PREMIER   MISSED.  ON. J. H. Turner, Premier, Minister of Finance,  ���eMinister of Agriculture, etc., etc., has returned to  the coast having ventured southward as far as Vernon. When he left Victoria he announced that he  ^fully intended to visit the Bioundary Creek district  but the work of wooing Kootenay from the irre-  a w pressible opposition would have been trying- on a  young-er and abler man, consequently Boundary Creek must  strug-g-le along for some time without the honor of having-  been visited by the Minister.        \,  While the district keenly feels the loss of such a visit,  still the premier missed something that, like the lark in the  Australian colony, was worth going miles to see. He missed seeing- a district that can flourish without government  pap, where people pay taxes into the provincial exchequer  and levy tribute on themselves to undertake public works.  He missed seeing- mines beside which those of Kootenay  would pale into insig-nificance,���mountains of ore instead  of veins that are measured by inches. He also missed seeing that-enormous area of land that has been tied up while  Heinze, /Dewdney, et al., have been trying- to run underground issageways to the treasuries at Victoria and Ottawa. I^a.xd that is not alluvial it is true, but it is too rich to  be used r<;r such an ig-noble purpose.  The pi ;,mier also missed several dangerous crossings on  the mucV: graveled road between Greenwood and Penticton,  notably at Rock Creek, where the fording- of the stream in  the absence of a bridge is trying to a less>timid man ; he  also missed having- to risk his life in the West Fork in order  tha4: he mig-ht visit the settlers who are tilling-the soil,  blad"' g- the rock and petitioning the provincial g-overnment to construct them a much needed bridge.  The Prei r would certainly have come in by jthe way of  Osoyoos ha \e visited the district. He would be anxious  to travel through the Osoyoos valley and visit the g-overnment offices.| He therefore missed breathing- the air of the  free in the land of liberty. That was something to miss,  too. When the Premier had more enthusiasm and still less  discretion than he has now, he petitioned the government of  the Great Republic to remove certain Indians from British  Columbia where the Union Jack contaminated the air they  breathed, to a richer and purer air through which wavered  the stars and stripes. In order to reach Rock Creek, Midway, Greenwood and other points, it is necessary to pass  throug-h United States, althoug-h there is an excellent opportunity for building- a road through British territory. The  Premier would surely have enjoyed this portion of the trip,  particularly if he was forced to pay $10 a day to a convoy  to see that he did not smuggle any political pointers across  the line.  The Premier by not visiting- Greenwood also missed seeing one of the most thriving- towns in British Columbia,  where people are all doing well and have every confidence  in the district.  He also missed seeing one of the best equipped and best  kept hospitals in the province. A hospital which has been  singled out for exceptional treatment at the hands of the  government since it is the only one that receives no government aid.  The Premier missed something else and this may in a  measure account for his neglect to visit the district ; he  missed the opportunity to make excuses for the Hon. Mr.  Martin's promises which have never been fulfilled.  But above all the Premier missed a glorious opportunity  to tell the people how the wicked opposition, led by Donald  Graham, the   member  for   the district,   succeeded   in   de  feating the g-overnment and thereby prevented the building-  of a railroad into this district. It would not be necessary  for him to tell them the constitutional practice when a government is defeated���farmers and miners are supposed to  be well acquainted with May, Todd and other authorities,  althoug-h the members of the government are supposed to  be ig-norant when that best suits their purpose. Taking-  his cue from the Colonist and Hon. Mr. Martin, he mig-ht  also have g-iven Donald Graham credit for amendments  which mig-ht prejudice his�� constituents. It is not essential  that Mr. Graham should have any connection with these  amendments so long- as they were likely to injure him politically. The Premier could have done all this without telling- the electors of the close relationship between Mr.  Heinze and the government and governor ; of the sundry  orders-in-council which are to be signed by Lieutenant-  Governor Dewdney in the interest of Director Dewdney of  the Columbia & Western Railway Company.  The Premier would certainly have enjoyed his trip into  Fast Yale and the people in these digging-s would have been  pleased to see him, and that reminds us that he missed seeing- a portion of a district represented by one man, which is  big- enoug-h and populous eno 7 g-h to be equal to a dozen  boroug-hs which return government supporters.  Jts.      i?'e.      jJfc.  ?!&     ?&   ., ?'&  A   MUNICIPAL   ANOMALY.  The Municipal Flections Act will disfranchise many of  the residents of Greenwood at the approaching- municipal  election. It will work the same hardship on the electors in  the cities incorporated during-the summer months. From  the notice which appears in another column it will be seen  that all householders, before they are entitled to vote, must  make a declaration to the effect that they have been householders within the municipal limits for twelve months immediately preceding the first day of November, 1897. Or in  other words, no one will have a vote at the coming municipal election, save real estate owners who are British subjects, British subjects carrying- on business who have their  trade licenses, and householders who were here before November 1st of last year.  It does appear a most remarkable anomaly to disfranchise  those in November who were given the right to vote at the  first election in August last. Surely if they had the necessary common sense and judg-ment to entitle them to take a  part in the, municipal contest in August, their experience of  municipal affairs gained in the intervening- months should  make them more entitled to the franchise in January next.  We hold that it is wrong to place such restrictions upon the  people's right to exercise the franchise in municipal, provincial, or federal elections. Municipal affairs concern  every resident,���even the denizen of the humblest log hut.  " What concerns all should be approved by all," holds as  true to-day as in the days of Fdward I., when he used to  consult with his people before g-oing on any undertaking.  Legislators are too read3>- to g-ive property the right to vote  and disfranchise men���and women. ISy the terms of the  Municipal Act one can purchase a $25 lot in Greenwood  within the next two months and be entitled to vote at the  next municipal election ; while the householder who settled  here on or after November 1st, 1896, who may be one of the  most enterprising- and intelligent citizens, who may be the  father of a. large family'and has therefore a great interest  in seeing- good municipal government, he will be barred  from voting in January, 1898.  During the coming-year in Greenwood it will be necessary  to undertake many important works ; in fact the future of  the cit}r largely depends upon the conduct of the city fathers  jiwwiuwj-j.ug-MBJwai-iuj^'i.umt'LiA'yj^  MMMaiHAMUf-M  mnrnsmmmasmmiiemm  mwDSMmnxpasam  WWMWgUJWIUlUJ  wuu hilii nut w avumw THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES.  next year, and those fathers should be  the choice of the whole people, not  a few. " Kickinar " will not mend  matters, as the Municipal IDlections  Act must be obeyed, but it is the duty  of the few householders who are qualified to see that their names are -placed  on the voters' list. The necessary  forms ma3r be secured at The Times  office; Mr. A. S. Black's, Mr. I. H.  Hallett'sjor "Mir. Leamy's.'  G. P. R. and Boundary.  Sir William Van Home, president of  the"C. P.   Railwa}1*, addressed the Vancouver Board of Trade a few days ago.  His  remarks  relative   to  the   railway  into Boundary Creek were as   follows :  ." There   was   another matter   about  which he wished to say a word or  two.  In this province there were all sorts of  railroad ��� schemes  on foot,   and among-  them   was   that  of the   Victoria., Vancouver & Eastern ".Railway," a   rather,  ambitious   scheme, to 0 build cL  railway  from the coast  to the   Columbia river.  He would like  to tell   what his company's position was.    The}' had, seven or  eig:ht   years    ago,   projected   a     line  throug-h the Crow's Nest 'Pass to near  Hope on  the  Fraser river.    For some  . time the C. P. R.   had eng-ineers in the  field to examine all of southern British  Columbia.    By the close  of next  year  the main line would be   through from  Dunmore   to   Robson on the  Columbia  river,   and   steps  would   probably   be  taken before that  time  to  build   from  the   Columbia  river  westward.    With  such a larg-e amount invested the C. P.  R.   could  not  be   expected   to  permit  another company to block or exclusively occupy the territory from" the Columbia river to   the  Fraser.    A   compaii}'-  other than the C. P. R.( must ally itself  with one of the   American  railways to  the south of'the international houndar}--  and   business   would   be   taken    away  from British Columbia and-Vancouver.  Such   a   line  should  not be permitted.  He mentioned it because,   in   the  near-  future, they would be approached for a  handsome bonus for such a  line.    The  line proposed by the C. P. R., via Penticton to Hope, would give  everything  that Vancouver could desire."  A Few Errors.  The Spokesman-Review, is generally  accurate in its mining news but occasionally it publishes items that show  an ignorance of the g-eography of  Boundary Creek district. . On Wednesday last it published an article which  credited Mr. W. L,. Hog-g- 'with having  invested in mining properties on the  Colville reservation and placed the  Sunset and Crown Silver claims in  Deadwood camp near Grand Forks.  Mr. Hogg-'s mining interests in this  section are confined exclusively to  Boundciry Creek district and Deadwood  camp is near Greenwood, some of the  mines therein being within the corporate limits of Greenwood.  Thomas Clark, a brother of Patsy  Clark, the well known mining- man  who has bonded the Snowshoe, arrived  from Spokane on Wednesday and will  remain here for some time. The force  of men at the Snowshoe has been increased and the work of development  is being vigorously pushed  Good progress is being made on the  wagon road to Summit camp. It will  be completed in about 15 days.  -*f*'**.��j**'*'"*' -.''*<-.!-'&�����: .   ������ -, ....���"���-���'7 ���.�����._.- ,'��� ....  ...^:.,C��L' ���   . -   .' .'m"***.' -CZ1... ..... .7.7'!*'..']-iC .. , ���! \ ������...

At Vancouver he has been telling- the people  about some of the company's experiences with the provincial g-overnment  and some of these make interestmi*-  reading. The following is an extract  from one of his speeches :  " We had a written pledge from the  Premier of this Province that if we  furnished facilities in that district he  would eruarantee that no charter should  be granted to any road southward to  the international boundary,, and that  the province should not encdurag-e  such a road. We spent $675,000, and  we had not the last rail laid when the  Province g-ranted a charter and gave a  subsidy of 20,000 acres of land per mile  for another road. We have had very  man3>* experiences of that kind in British Columbia, and it is a little difficult  to get our people to take much on  : faith."   ���'' '   " ���'��� e': "     '  The members of the   legislature will  feel  indeed   gratified  when they learn  that they were bonded b}r the, Premier  of the Province, to the G. P. R.    Whether it was   simply a working bond or included the usual 10  per cent.down'Sir  William   did   not   state.    Responsible  g-overnment has surely become, a farce  in   this  province   when   the   Premier  guarantees'   a   powerful   railway company, that' the  representatives  of the  people will not grant a charter  to   another company that  would g-ive  them  competitive freight rates.    It would be  interesting to learn if the Premier has  given any more g-uarantees to railway  companies.    It; is  just  possible that a  similar  eruarant.ee   was   given  to  Mr.  Heinze and this accounts for the   anxiety of the government at the   last  session of the legislature.  Fortunately for the good of the provincethe members sometimes refuse to  be mere automatons, consequently the  Premier is not in a position to make  g-ood his guarantees. The members  defeat the government even, but it  sticks to the treasury benches as if  nothing- had happened.  If Sir William Van Horne studies  British Columbia politics he will find  many things that will surprise him.  Hamilton Powder Works.  Mr..Georg-e C. Tunstall, Jr., of Nelson, agent for the Hamilton Powder  Works, paid a business visit to Greenwood this week. The Hamilton Powder Company" is one of the larg-est and  most reliable manufacturers of explosives on the continent, and appreciating  the growing- importance of Boundary  Creek district the}' have established an  agency here, their agent being-Mr. Gr.  R. Naden, of the Beale3'Iyoan and Investment Co. In the next week's issue  of The Times the company will make  an interesting- announcement to the  public. ;    .,������'-'���'  The surveyors for the Columbia &  Western railway ran a line throug-h  Greenwood to the mouth of Boundary  Creek this week.  John  Rogers,  who  has  some   very  properties   in   the  Burnt Basin   district,   Christina  lake,  spent the week in Greenwood.  promismo-  mining-  Dr. Hicking-bottorn, during- his tour  of inspection throughout the district,  discovered one or two cases of glanders.  The diseased horses will be killed.  MINERAL    ACT,    1896.  Certificate,   of   Improvements.  N O T I c e .

'^tnn  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  /)  t^J  .*>  Glanders.  Dr. Hickingbottom, of Rossland, has  received instructions from the Dominion Government to make a thorough  inspection of Boundary Creek and surrounding districts with a view to ascertaining if there are any cases of glanders among the horses. The doctor  arrived in Greenwood from Rossland  on Tuesday evening and will remain  here for some time. He has the neces-  sary authority to destroy horses afflicted with the dread disease and quarantine the district if necessary.  Cases of glanders have been discovered by Dr. Christie who is a veterinary  surgeon of nearly 30 years successful  experience, and as the disease can be  contracted by human beings the necessity for stringent measures is apparent.  The disease is incurable.  Knowing that the disease is reported  to be prevalent in the district, it is the ,  duty of the, city council to see that the  water of Twin creel-ris not contaminated by diseased horses drinking there.  At the present time horses drink in the  stream where the people are accustomed to get water for household purposes.  It is anything but pleasant to think of  a glandered horse drinking where the  water used an the household is secured.  It is not difficult to keep the horses  away from that portion of Twin creek  from which is drawn the household  supply. (?To the rear of the Pioneer  livery stableas a watering trough and  the overflow from this does not empty-  in to Twin creek proper.  Work on the Winnipeg.  Mr. Mcintosh, one of the owners of  the famous Winnipeg mine in Wellington camp, arrived in Greenwood this  week and,at once put a large force of  men at work on the property. Mr. Mcintosh stated that it is the intention of  the company to work the mine continuously. Mr. Honey of North Dakota  who is interested in the property is expected in to-day. He brings with him  a complete plant for the mine. It is  understood that Mr. Honey will remain  in the district for some time. The  Winnipeg is adjacent to the Golden  Grown, and is considered one of the  best  properties in the district.  A Revivalof Trade.  There has been a decided improvement in business during the last few  weeks. Every business man in the  district states that his business has  considerably increased. Sales have  been heavier and collections easier.  Mining- properties have also been  changing hands. The representatives  of capital have been in the district and  have secured several properties. Of  course, there are but a limited amount  of $50,000 and $100,000 properties in the  district, consequently there are only a  limited amount of big sales to report,  but equally satisfactory are the many  purchases of undeveloped claims at  prices ranging- from $500 to possibly  $1,500. The buyers secure these for  development purposes and this means  the expenditure of considerable money  in the district.

Walter Stirling- has been investing-  in Boundary Creek mining- property  during- the week and has secured some  g-ood claims. He is also negotiating-  for the purchase of others. A cipher  made a big- difference in the price paid'  by Mr. Stirling- for the Jacobsen property on Copper street. Instead of $13,-  000 as it appeared in last week's issue  of the Times, the price should have  read $1,300.  William H.

C.  -i ���"��.  *\-,  ,   .L  *T!ir~  ;J THE    WATERWORKS.  l^ast week  Mr.   C.   JQ. Shaw, C. E}.,  made, the levels for a system of  waterworks in   the   city.    It   is understood  that Mayor Wood who is the   principal  ^shareholder    in  the   Greenwood   City  Waterworks    Coraparry    is   extremely  anxious that  a  system of waterworks  should be built from Twin  Creek  this  fall.    He    does   not   feel   justified   in  undertaking the   expense of   such   an  undertaking  individually  as  he  is .so  heavily   interested  in  other ventures.  Several   financial   men   have   already  volunteered  the  necessary  capital   to  construct such   system   of waterworks  but the  trouble  appears to be that the  work   has   delayed   so  long  that they  fear to now risk their money in an undertaking which may not be completed  before   the    severe   weather   sets   in.  While    not     professing   to   be either  weather prophets or engineers we think  such  fears   are in  a measure  groundless.    We are informed that the necessary pipe for the  system  can  be purchased  in Spokane   and  with the employment of a large number of men the  work could   be   completed   in- a reasonably  short   time,   in   fact, before the  severe weather  which   usually   comes  about the first of the 3rear.  I^aying aside the convenience of such  a system for household purposes, its  importance for fire protection cannot  be over-estimated. The city has grown  to such a large extent, its improvements are of such value and the business interests so extensive that it  should no longer be left without an efficient system of fire protection. If it  were a difficult .matter to secure the  necessary power, if it meant the expenditure of a large sum of money then  the delay could be justified but when a  system that would be effective for fire  purpose can be secured at a nominal  figure, the business men are taking  foolish risks by leaving-their properties  unprotected.  Considering the waterworks  simply  as a business  speculation,   there   is no  good reason why it should not pay  handsome dividends on the capital expended.  The system can be built for at least  $7,500 and the revenue from 100 private  residences, and from"the city and business houses for fire hydrants, would easily pay the expenditure of running the  works and a good dividend.  The fire this week should be a warning to those who do not seem to appreciate the necessity for a system of  waterworks. Unless the Waterworks  Company take action in the matter,  the city council should seriously consider the advisability of securing a loan  at as early a date as possible and constructing its own waterworks.  -OF-  Unniountecl, S1.25.

HEAVY   LOSS   FROM   FIRE.  %am��  -&5^^.ri^iSt.f , -res ^i^?^^;^^->a*^^rgjga^;  sps-^il  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES/  The " patent fire extihg-uisher-" man  man is a hoodoo of the first water. He  came to Greenwood on Sunday, and  Monday- h igiht he showed the people  how easily his apparatus could extin-  g-uish fires. He, started a bonfire opposite Barrett & Hodgson's residence  and when it reached the proper height  he successfully quenched it with the  chemical. A few hours afterwards  Barrett & Hodgson's pretty cottage,  upon which they had spent many dollars making it cosy and comfortable,  was burnt to the ground. The extinguisher man was not responsible for  the blaze, but it was a remarkable coincidence that the only serious fire,  which visited Greenwood should happen three or four hours after he showed  how easily a larg-e fire could, be subdued. '7. .--'',.' 7   '. .,  Aid. Balrrett,retired about midnight  Monday evening-, and at 3.45 a.m. was  aroused by the crackling- of fire in his  residence. At that time the blaze had  g-aihed considerable headway, and he  at once concluded it was impossible to  save the building. The people living  in the neighborhood were soon aroused  and in a few minutes a larg-e crowd of  willing- workers were busy removing  the furniture and other valuables from  the house. Everything of any value  excepting- the carpets -was removed  from the building, so that the loss is  principally confined to the house itself.  It was fortunate for Greenwood that  the night was perfectly calm and that  the residence was surrounded by  grounds which.. are kept clean of rubbish of every kind. As it was the attention of the fire fighters had to be  directed, towards saving- Mr. R. F.  Coates' residence and carpenter shop  on the, one side and Mr. Hallett's office  and the Bealey Investment Company's  office on the other side. Mr. Coates'  residence being- the nearer was in the  greatest danger anci it was only by carrying bucket after bucket of water from  Twin creek that it was saved.  The Barrett and Hodg-son cottage  having been built of logs burnt fiercely  but as it was only a one-story building  there was less danger than if it were  higher.  most enthusiastic fire  was Rev. Mr. Eeith and he  should be presented with the fire bell  in recog-nition of his services. It  might be useful in calling- the indolent  to church services but as a means for  g-iving an alarm for fire it is a total  failure. We doubt very much if it  would succeed in calling-the average  Green woodite to church but if he missed one service he could attend the next.  For fire purposes, instead of being- an  assistance it is a source of danger. Its  tones are so undecided that instead of  arousing- the people it lulls them into  deeper slumber. In consequence of  this the principal officers of the Volunteer Fire Department heard about the  fire about nine o'clock Tuesday morning-. The captain, first-lieutenant, vice-  president and secretary-treasurer were  conspicuous by their absence. The only  officer present was Lieutenant Munroe.  Among- the  fighters  The burnt cottage was uninsured and  Messrs. Hodg-soh and Barrett's loss will  be fully $1,200. It was handsomely fitted up inside, over $1,100 having been  spent in fitting's.  The fire started from the fireplace in  the sitting-room. Being-rather a chilly  evening-, a g-ood fire was kept in this;  fire place and as the bricks were placed  ag-ainst log\s it is supposed that they  became overheated and ig-nited the  'log's behind. The smouldering fire  worked its way to the ceiling- where it  secured a draught and soon the building-was ablaze. ,  Capt. Nelson was not at the fire. He  blamed the bell but the bell has enoug-h  to, answer for. " Billy '' was married  about two weeks ago.  Judg-e Kerr is not as composed at a  fire as he is on the bench and as a consequence Eawyer Black enjo3red an unwilling-baptism. The Judge was busy  hauling-water from the creek to quench  the flames but instead he aroused the  lawyer's ire. He poured the water on  the lawyer instead of on the building-.  Aid. Barrett escaped taxes on improvements. The residence was assessed only a few hours before the fire.  Mr. Eeslie Hill had his office in the  burnt cottage. His furniture, papers  and books were also saved.  The fire proved what can be expected  if a similar one starts in one of the  business portions of the town.  Wanted���A good fire bell and a system of waterworks.  For a few hundred dollars the power  that is g-oing- to waste in Twin creek  mig-ht be used to save thousands of  dollars' worth of property in the city. .  If all the barking, curs in the city  could be induced to turn their energies  to g-iving- alarms of fires, they would  be a decided improvement on the bell.  Hasten the waterworks !  A  New Company.  It is understood that Mr. J. E. Hooper of Calgary has been instrumental in  floating- a company in Eondoh to acquire and develop Boundary Creek  properties. The company is known as  the B. C, Kettle River Mining- and Exploration Co. Mr. Hooper visited  Greenwood last spring" and invested  heavily in real estate in the city and  mining property in the district. He  also had two experienced mining men  in the district during the summer. Mr.  Hooper is expected here in  a few days.  DISSOLUTION   NOTICE.

L-Sf  i  i" *K-.  J...V , Mr. Donald Graham, member of the  provincial legislature for Kast Yale, is  visiting- his constituents in the souths  ern portion of the district with a view  to ascertaining- their wants and wishes.  He is driving- his own team and from  Penticton he went to Fairview, Osoyoos  Keremeos, Sidley, Camp McKinney  and on to Midway and Greenwood,  reaching- here on Wednesday*- afternoon. He left for Grand Forks yesterday and will return homewards the beginning-of the week.  On Thursday evening- a meeting- of  the electors was held in Rendell & Go's,  hall for the purpose of hearing- an address from the member and also that  he��� mig-ht learn the needs of the people.  Aid. Galloway was voted to the chair.'  and after a few preliminary remarks  he introduced Mr. Graham.  Mr. Graham was well received.    He  stated that   this   was  his   annual tour  which he  always found   necessary   to  make in order to keep himself in touch  with the  electors,   particularly in  the  southern portion of the district.    There  were   several 'matters'"' of   importance  outside of  the  usual  votes   for roads,  streets and bridges, which would come  up at the next session and he was anx-  ious to  getan   expression  of  opinion  from  the  electors.    One  of these was  redistribution.    The    interest   in    the  question was g-eneral and   there, was a  strong- feeling-  throughoutthe country  that there should be a   radical   change  in the plan of  redistribution   in  order  that every   district   should   have  that  representation   to which   it is entitled.  Previous to the last g-eneral   election a  measure was broug-ht down by the g-overnment but it was based upon no principle of representation and consequently the election resulted in the return of  22 g-overnment members   and   11 opposition members,  and the  difference   in  the vote represented by the parties was  onty one or two thousand.    Iii   the last  election Fast Yale had 1030 votes with  one member, while Iyillooett was g-iven  two members with 450 votes, Fsquimalt  two   members   with   400    votes     and  Cowichan-Alberni  two  members with  about    450     votes.    Other     instances  almost as g-laring could   also be. mentioned.    Mr.   Graham represented   as  many voters as five other   members in  the house.    Such a state of thing-s was  not fair  to  Fast  Yale   (Hear,   Hear.)  Fast session Premier  Turner   made a  promise to bring* down a redistribution  this   coming-   session.    Fast   Yale will  then   have over 1600, possibly 1700 voters and it will be simply impossible for  the g-overnment to ig-nore its claim for  at least another member.    He   did   not  expect a   fair redistribution    measure.  The government couldn't .get- up sufficient courag-e   to   cut off their supporters   in    the   pocket    boroug-hs.    They  oug-ht   to   do   so   but   they   are seldom  found doing- those   thing's   they   oug-ht  to do.    With reference to Fast Yale   it  was a question as to  whether   another  member should be g-iven for the district  or whether it should be subdivided into  two   districts.    Mr.   Graham  was anxious to secure an expression of opinion  on this point.    Hon.   Mr.   Martin   had  stated   to   him   that   he   had found the  people in favor of another member, not  sub-division and  Mr.   Graham   wished  , to be in a position to successfully dispute that assertion. (Hear, hear.) In  Fairview, Keremeos, Midway, Osoyoos,  and at other points he found the opinion of the people universally in favor  of sub-division.    (Hear, hear.)  Mr.    Graham  then  dealt    with   the  question   of railway construction.    He  noticed   that   Mr.   Martin   during-   his  visit here had taken occasion to blame  the opposition and particularly himself  for railwaj*" construction not beg-inning-  in Boundary   Creek  district   this year,  but  what  were  the actual facts?    At  the last   session   of the  legislature the  g-overnment   introduced   ci   bill which  did not   contemplate   the beg-inning- of  railwaj'   construction      in     Boundary  Creek this season or next season.    The  bill g-iving- $4,000 a mile for a road also  g-ave two years in which to beg-in work.  That was how the g-overnment encouraged    railwa}*-   construction.    He (Mr.  Graham) then moved an amendment to  the  effect   that  one  of  the conditions  upon  which the $4,000 a mile could   be  secured was by beginnings construction  within   six   months   from the passage  of the act but this amendment was voted down by the g-overnment.    He then  moved an amendment to limit the time  to ,12 months   and   the  premier  seeing-  that   this   was   meeting-  with favor in  the house  compromised on  15  months  so that now in order to entitle any railway company to the $4,000 a  mile they  must beg-in active  construction before  July next.    Instead  of  hindering" railway   construction   the   opposition   had  done everything- to facilitate  construction.    The3r   urged   upon   the   government to   at  once   build  the  Boundary P  Creek lineas a g-overnment  undertaking but they refused.    Mr. Martin had  also credited him  with having-  moved  an amendment   making  it  impossible  for Heinze to secure a land grant  and  $4,000 a mile.    He   did   not   move   the  amendment but he voted for  it and he  did so with  the . strongest  endorsation  from the people   of   Boundary   Creek.  (Hear, hear.)    There was a strong feel- -  ing against Mr. Heinze securing a land  subsidy. His connec-  looked altogether too suspicious. The lieutenant-  governor had an interest in the Heinze  company and it was generally believed  that interest was given him not for  any cash consideration but in order  that his influence could be secured in  favor of the company. There was also  a g-rave suspicion that other members  of the government were interested in  the Heinze company. Nothing else  would explain4 their eagerness to advance Heinze's interest upon all possible occasions.(Hear, hear.) Mr. Fberts,  the attorney-g*eneral, admitted on the  floor of the house that the. firm of  Fberts & Taylor had been eng-aged by  Mr. Heinze iu certain cases. There  was a strong- feeling throug-hout the  province against ministers of the government allowing- themselves to be  mixed up with companies demanding  public favors.    (Hear, hear.)  Mr. Graham also dealt with the reorganization of the civil service and a  liberal expenditure on useful public  works. He also showed that the government, against the wishes of their  own supporters, alwaj's opposed any  effort to discourag-e the employment  and immigration of Chinese. The government were too much the tools of the  Dunsmuirs, and consequently always  advocated their interests. The president of the Council, Mr. Pooley, is a  salaried   officer    of    the    Dunsmuirs.  grant and cash  tion with the government  Mr. Graham also discussed the planks  in the Opposition platform, dealing  with the reservation of the land for actual settlement, the reservation of Coal  lands, and timber lands. He also denounced the action of the government  in taxing miners working for wages in  the Interior; while those working in  the Dunsmuir coal mines escaped taxation. Then dealing with the mal-ad-  ministration of the Lands and Works-  department, he described the treatment  accorded to the Ruckle Brothers at  Grand Forks and Mr. Favalle at Christina lake. It was; such treatment as  ought to condemn any government.  He  also   advocated   the  repeal  of  the  mortgage tax.  This was not a burning,  because  questionan Boundary Creek,  the people were so prosperous that they  werestrangers to mortgages; but in  other parts of the province the mortgage tax was a serious question ; it was  '��� simply a plan of dual taxation. He  also showed many instances where the  government championed the , cause of;  the monopolists against the people, the  classes against the masses, mentioning  among others their efforts to assist the  Nelson Waterworks Compan3r to unload  their useless, plant upon the city at an  enormous figure.  In closing he suggested that a committee be appointed to prepare a statement of the needs of the district, as it  was necessary that he should be in a  position to tell the government what  the requirements are.     [Applause.]  Duncan Ross then moved the following resolution :  Resolved,���That as it is probable that a Redistribution bill will be introduced at the next  session of the Provincial Leg-islature, and as  the district of East Yale has now a population  that justifies at least two members, the electors  of Boundaiy Creek district are strong*Vy of the  opinion that the District should be subdivided,  so as to g-iye a member to the agricultural portion north of Penticton and one to. the mining-  section to the south of that point ; and  Be it further resolved,���That we request our  member, Mr. Graham, to use his influence in  bring-.ing- about such a division of the district,  and to oppose aii3r plan of redistribution that  does not recog*nize the necessit3- of making- two  .siug-le member constituencies of East Yale.  Aid. Phelan seconded the motion and  it was carried unanimously.  Mr. Graham suggested that a committee be appointed for organization  purposes. After some discussion it-  was decided that such a committee  should be appointed at a future meeting. .    "  Aid. Phelan in a neat speech moved  a vote' of thanks to Mr. Graham.  This was seconded by Mr. S. Graham  and carried unanimously.  Mr. Graham replied and the meeting  closed with a vote of thanks to the  chairman.  It should be added that Mr. Graham  intimated during the evening- that he  intended to allow his name to be submitted at a nomination convention,  but if he did not receive the nomination  all his efforts would be directed to  securing- the return of the regularly  nominated candidate or candidates.  ��    ��    ��  WILLS' Famous "Navy Cut"  and    " Traveller"   Tobaccos..

A striking-evidence of the fact that  ���the population of Greenwood is continually increasing-was to be found in the  attendance at the church concert on  Wednesday evening-. The school room  heretofore was sufficiently- larg-e to contain those who desired to attend entertainments of a similar character, but  on Wednesday nig-ht standing- room  even was at a premium. The concert  was a g-ood old fashioned one with an  excellent programme and an excellent,  repast to satisfy the0 inner man.  Aid. Phelan   was  elected  chairman  and no better choice  could  have  been  made.    In a neat speech  he  congratu-  lated the ladies who were instrumental  in  getting up the concert upon such   a  larg-e attendance.    The entertainment  opened    with    a   quartette   in   which  Messrs. Castleman, Beath,   Iyeith  and  Ivamont's voices blended with the music   of   Mr.   Gully's   autoharp.    Then  came a recitation by Miss Maud Butler,  and an instrumental   duet  by  Messrs.  Beath and Gulley, a song- by Mr. Har-  larid, a recitation by  Miss  Josie Bart-  lett, and   a  duet  by  Mrs.   Paton and  Miss   Castleman.    From a ..meritorious  point of view the last was; the  gem   of  the evening-.    Refreshments were then  served  and   the  Anaconda   Orchestra  opened the second part of the prpg-ram-  me with a well pla3red overture.     The  member for the district was introduced  to the   audience  by, the   chairman   as  " Hon. Donald Graham."    Mr. Graham  made   a   brief   address.    He   couldn't  talk politics at a  church social  but  he  said nothing- and said it well for  about  three  minutes.    He extended  his congratulations    upon    the     remarkable  growth of the city, upon the larg-e number of g-ood looking- ladies present  and  concluded by expressing-his belief that  as a  railway would  certainly  be built  next year, the  city  would   assume extensive   proportions.    Miss Josie Bart-  lett   and   Mr.    Comstock sang-   a   duet  which was followed by a well delivered  recitation by Master Jack Galloway,   a  song- by Miss Armstrong-, a   recitation  by Mrs. Flood,   and  a  song- by Mr. J.  Harland and an  instrumental  solo by  Messrs. Beath and Gulley.  A motion was then unanimously passed expressing- appreciation of Mr.  I^eith's services and requesting- that he  return as the first pastor of Greenwood  after completing* his colleg-e course.  Votes of thanks Were passed to the  chairman and the ladies and the entertainment was closed b3' the sing-ing- of  the national anthem.  A New Charter.  D. G.

While Manager Me-  graw and a miner were working- in the  bottom of the shaft, a piece of timber  fell a considerable distance, striking-  both -men. Major Megraw was rather  seriously wounded, the timber striking-  him on the head and inflicting- an ugly  scalp wound. Dr. Jakes was sent for  and he went over to Camp McKinney  to see the injured men. The miner  escaped with slig-ht injuries but it will  be some time before the Major will  recover.  Returned from the East.  E. B. Simmonds, of the International  hotel, returned on Tuesday from a six  weeks business visit to New York and  other Eastern centres. Before returning- he went down to the Coast to meet  Mrs. Simmonds who has been ill in the  hospital there and who returned with  him to Greenwood. In Vancouver Mr.  Simmonds met the Van Home party,  and Sir William Van Home assured  him that the C.P.R. intended to build  in Boundary Creek next year.  Charles Holt, a miner from Eureka  camp, came to the Greenwood hospital  .seriously ill about Oct. 1st. He died  on Saturday, 23rd, of heart failure,  complicating rheumatic fever. The  deceased was buried in the Greenwood  cemetery on S'undaj*-, Rev. Mr. Iveith  conducting the services. A messenger  was sent to Eureka with a view of finding- out if he had aii3r friends there but  it was discovered that he had been in  Eureka only a short time and no one  appeared to know if he had airy  friends.
