A Weekly Paper published in tlie interests ot the Boundary Creek Mining District,  Vol; V,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY,   SEPTEMBER  10,  1898,  105  No, 1  Ifl  A Description of a Trip to the New Railway  Town on Arrow Lake,  The   Railway   will   Pass   Through   a   Very  Rough Country,^-Promising  Mining  Sections,  Brooklyn is the liveliest, the flimsiest built and the  least substantial looking- town in British Columbia. It  sprang" up in a day and is not there to stay. It is simply a  collection of cheaply built hotels, a few stores and the contractors' offices and warehouses. It sprang into existence  because it was a convenient point from which to start a tote  road along the line of railway. When the railroad is completed from Robson to the Summit about four miles above  Brooklyn, the contractors will move their offices there ; then  Brookl3Tn will disappear. To-day it is a; busy place. Several steamers call there daily. Men are coming in to work  on the road ; the dozen hotels are doing a rushing business  and every one is making-money. But the most enthusiastic Brooklynite does not think the town will last. " If we  get two months more of this we will be satisfied " is a common expression with the Brooklyn business man.  A trip across the country to Brooklyn is one full of interest. It is doubly interesting to any one anxious to see  the Columbia & Western Railway constructed to Boundary  Creek. The construction of one hundred miles of railway  does not sound formidable but when one goes over the route  and sees the almost insurmountable difficulties that are to  be encountered one wonders at the temerity of the C. P. R.  in attempting construction at all. One of the engineers  thought the C. P. R. showed poor business judgement.  " The C. P. R. could have purchased the entire Corbin system " said he,"and built the Kettle River road and the company would then have expended less money than it will cost  to build a railway from Robson to Midway."  To reach Brooklyn on horseback the Christina Eake  road is taken from Cascade. Cascade is booming-. Men are  rushing- in there ; large substantial buildings are being- constructed and lots are selling freely. Cascade also is going  to be a city of hotels seven or eight being in course of construction.  Three miles from Cascade the trail to the tote road  leaves the wagon road, a narrow bridg-e built by prospectors  is crossed and then the fun beg-ins. The trail around  Christina Eake is the worst in British Columbia. The people of Boundary Creek have very justly been complaining  about the roads in this district but the worst trail in Boundary Creek is a paved street compared with the Christina  Ivake trail. It is an old deer trail which runs up and down  grades that tax the strength of the strong-est horse. For  $100 a good trail could have been made along- the lake shore.  The numerous prospectors in the Burnt Basin district and  the ranchers at the lake petitioned the government for the  necessary money but without avail. Fortunately for the  settlers, the railway contractors are continuing the tote  road to Cascade City so that there is no longer . a necessity  for asking the government to do its duty.  The tote road is built almost to the lake. It passes  along the line of railway through McRae pass until Eng-  glish Point is reached when it swings along the shore of the  lake'to Cascade City\    The tote road is well built.    II is   an  object lesson to the provincial road builders. It shows the  importance of having-wagon roads constructed under the  direction of a competent engineer. The country it passes  through is a much rougher one than surrounds Greenwood  but the eng-ineer who planned the road succeeded in avoiding steep grades. When completed to Cascade a stage  line will run over it to accommodate the larg-e traffic and  freight that will be hauled both ways from Brooklyn and  Cascade.,  The work of construction of the railway   is  well  under  way' from Robson to Christina Eake. The grading- is  almost completed to the tunnel four miles above Brooklyn.  Track-laying on this portion of the line will be commenced  about October 1st in order that supplies can be hauled by  rail to the summit before show flies. From the summit  westward men are employed on different sub-contracts.  The majority of the laborers are Italians and Swedes.  Along- the tote road adjacent to all sub-contracts have been  built hotels. The best of these is at Gladstone where a  large and comfortable two-storey building- has been erected  by Messrs. Dorsey and Wisner. Gladstone is going to be a  town. It is within a mile of the Burnt Basin mining district and other mining camps are tributary to it. Gladstone will become a distributing point for these mining  sections and if the mines prove profitable there is sufficient  mineral area to ensure a large town in the vicinity.  So far the development of the mining interests has been  most encouraging. In the Burnt Basin district W. Cooper  of Rossland has been developing the Solid Gold and other  claims. On the Solid Gold about 20 feet of work has been  done and assays have been secured running $30 to $75 in  gold and copper. Mike Shicks has been working the  Mother Eode, a free gold property from which assays as-  high as $6750 have been secured. Jones and Rogers and  Thomas Keller have also been working Burnt Basin properties with encouraging results.  The townsite of Gladstone is owned by Messrs. Cameron and Forrest. It is a level flat of country lying between  the hills. The townsite includes 640 acres. Messrs. Cameron and Forrest have some good mining interests north-:  east of the town. Their principal claim is the John Bull  upon which considerable development work has been done.  The ore is a rich copper, $47 being an average assay.  There is a general store at Gladstone. Xots are selling  and men are getting ready to start business there.  Near the town, the construction work on the railway is  very heavy and a large number of men will be employed.  A contractor named Olsen has a contract for several  miles of nearly solid rock work. L,ast Sunday he moved  between 8000 and 9000 yards of rock with a single shot. A  drift was run into the mountain side for 50 feet. A large  amount of powder was placed in this and fired with the  above result.  Below Gladstone about four miles is Stout & McPher-  son's sawmill. They have the contract for all the timber  from Gladstone westward. They have a large force of men  employed and this will be increased as soon as the mill is  installed.* Surrounding the mill is a belt of good timber.  Mr. Stout also secured the contract for timber for the fifty  miles of branch line that is to be built in the Boundary  Creek country. He expects to establish several mills in  this district ; one of which will be up the North Fork of the  Kettle river.  It is difficult to say when the railwaj' will be completed.  The contractors claim that it is the heaviest piece of railroading they ever had anything to do with. Even under  the most favorable circumstances it is safe to predict that  the road will not be completed to Greenwood within   twelve THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  months. The contractors are anxious  to complete as rapidly as possible and  ���will let sub-contracts all along- the line  as soon as they have any assurance  that the necessary men can be secured.  Already a ���contract has been let to the  west of Cascade City and grading- has  been commenced. The work here is  comparatively easy.  When the grading- between Robson  and the Summit is completed the. large  force of men employed there will be  moved farther westwards so that there  is a strong probability that within the  next few months men will be employed  at all points on the line.  Street  Work.  ,The city council have ordered 4000  feet of steel rails which will be used in  hauling earth from excavations to the  valley below. The engineer estimates  that the work can be done cheaper by  rail than by teams.  The work has been commenced on  Government street. There1 are numerous strong protests from ratepayers  against making an eleven foot cut on  Government street opposite Rendell &  Co's. store. Property owners hold  that it will cost more to excavate to  the street level than would purchase a  lot on Copper street and the consequence will be that Government street  will be completely destroyed as a business street. Several lawsuits ag-ainst  the city- for damages are threatened.  Mr. McDuff has been appointed superintendent and has full charge of the  work.    M. McLean is foreman.  County   Court.  The time has surely arrived when  county court should be held in Greenwood. At present over seventy-five  per cent, of the cases tried before  Judg-e Spinks at Midway are Greenwood cases. To litigants, lawyers and  witnesses, it is an unnecessary hardship to force them to g-o to Midway  when court could as readily be held at  home. There is here a provincial court  house, and a provincial officer who  could act as registrar. We, think that  if the attention of the new attorney-  g-eneral is drawn, to the matter, he will  take the necessary steps to have sessions of the county court here.  King  Solomon   Mine.  Mr. D. C. Corbin has decided to develop his big- Copper camp properties.  This week ten men started to work on  the King Solomon. The King Solomon was acquired b3r Mr. Corbiri several vears ago but since-securing a  crown grant no work has been done up  to the present. It has an enormous  showing and will likely prove one of  the big- properties of the district. Mr.  Corbin owns other Copper camp properties.  Those who have read the Rossland  Times since Kenneth F. Bellairs has  taken charge, will appreciate the following- from the pen of a well known  newspaper man : " ffarington Bellairs  is making- a success of the Times. The  paper sells like hot cakes, more on account of the racy imbecility of the  sheet than for any other reason."  m  m  m  We are clearing out some Job Lines  X>  in  �����  */  m  SJgs  "SiSZS-  <,>/;���&  ^>/%!  ^)  M  SES.-  If  and  can  give  you  some good  baiv  gains j  jc\_    XI cL C     jLOF . .... .  . . . .  ��� '��� . .

The following reference is made to this city :  " Coming- rapidly to the front as a  mining town, and surrounded by a  number of camps, now undergoing development, Greenwood City gives  promise of becoming a city in fact as  well as in name. It is situated seven  miles in a direct line north of the international boundary line, in a basin  just above the mouth of copper creek,  'which heads in Copper camp, and directly opposite Twin creek, which  heads in Greenwood camp, both being  tributaries of Boundary creek, that  passes through the center of the town.  This basin, at an elevation of about  2400 feet above the level of the sea, is  in extent one and a half miles long by  from a quarter to a half a mile in width  at its head. Greenwood City is the  leading town of the Kettle Falls mining division of the Yale district, and  is connected by wagon road and trails  with at least twelve camps that are  from a half a mile to nine miles from  the town and all having a down grade  haul into it.  At present Greenwood City is reached from Spokane by going to Marcus,  on the Spokane Falls & Northern railway, and from there by stage a distance of 65 miles. By reason of its  situation and the fact that most of  these camps are reached directly from  the town as mentioned, the completion  of the Canadian Pacific railway will  add greatly to its prosperity and the  opening up of the immense mining  region tributary.  It was the fact  of  the   travel  going  through what is now Greenwood City  1o the different camps that decided  Robert Wood, the first and present  mayor, in September of 1895, after  carefully examing the district, to locate a townsite at this point. Events  moved slowly for a time, but the place  soon became recognized as an important point, people began to move in,  and in the summer of 1897 the citizens  took upon themselves the responsibility of municipal management and became incorporated, according to the  locator of the place the honor of being  their first mayor. <>.������  The city fathers are now arranging  for a complete waterworks system to  cost about $11,000 and will also immediately expend a further sum of $14,000  in grading and laying out streets and  sidewalks, so that by the time the railway enters the town visitors will be  agreeably surprised to find a thoroughly up-to-date city with all the conveniences found in places 10 times its size  in the east.  Another feature of the town is its  magnificently equipped hospital. A  long distance telephone wire has recently been , installed. An electric  light system is one of the proposed  undertakings shortly to be put in,  using the power of Boundary falls, five  miles below the town. Taking it all  in all no place of its size in the Koote-.  nays has a brighter future, and as  large a mining district surrounding it,  as the following limited description  will prove to the reader, than Greenwood City."

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.  Dr. and Mrs. Stanley Smith of Grand  Forks were among the visitors to  Greenwood this week. > ��� .   .  R. J. Bealey of Rossland, president  of the Bealey Investment & Trust Co.,  arrived in Greenwood yesterday. Mr.  Bealey has not been in Greenwood  since last year and was naturally surprised at the rapid  growth of the city.  The people of Cascade City are petitioning the government for another  justice of the peace. Mr. Rose, the  customs officer, is the only justice in-  that section. Owing to the increased  population there is need for another  jUstice.  After several adjournments the proprietors of the Gem Cigar store charged by G. H. Ford with running a gambling house were committed for trial by  Police Magistrate Hallett on Friday  morning. Bail was fixed in each case  at $3000 themselves individually, $1,500  a.nd two sureties in $750 each. ,  East Monday was Eabor day. The  holiday was not generally observed in  Greenwood. Several ladies and gentlemen went down to Boundary Falls,  where an enjoyable day was spent.  One or two thrilling adventures, in  ���which some of the party were almost  transported to the happy hunting  grounds, added interest to the day's  outing.  On Eabor day about 50 freight teams  were delayed at Cascade City. The  customs officer there refused to. clear  them because it was a public holiday.  Freighters were quite willing to pay  for the extra work, but the officer was  obdurate. There is certainly sufficient  time consumed in hauling goods from  Marcus without being delayed by the  customs officer.  HURLED   TO   DEATH.  Brooktyn, B. C, Sept. 7.���Another  frightful accident due to carelessness  occurred today on the line of the Columbia Western railway on the Robson-  Penticton branch, now in course of  construction. By it three men were  hurled into eternity in the twinkling  of an eye. The scene of the accident  was seven miles below Brooklyn, on  the contract of Vernon W. Smith,  where four men had a sub-contract.  They were John Kinnear, Oscar Anderson, Tom Eanebau and Dan Ryan.  The latter was the only one who escaped when the premature blast went off.  Two blasts were being prepared, one  of eight keg-s and the other of 20 kegs.  In loading the second, after twelve  kegs had been put in, the hol��: became  stopped.  Eanebau used an iron spoon to clear  the opening and instant^ the blast  went off. Kinnear, Eanebau and Anderson were hurled 700 feet down the  mountain side and died but a few minutes after striking. Ryan was thrown  15 feet and escaped without injury.  The remains of the victims were  brought to Brooklyn and taken in  charge by the contractors and will be  properly buried. The first two named  were 23 years old, the other about 35.  All the men were without families.  No blame attaches to any one but  Ivanebau who was cautioned not to do  the fatal act.  PARTY   LINES.  We regret that we are compelled to  express our complete disagreement  with the conservative convention in  relation, to its action on provincial politics, and the course which it has pledged the party to pursue in regard to it.  We realize fully the possible consequences which such a declaration may  have on this journal and the attitude  which the conservative party in British Columbia may thereby be led in  the future to hold us. "We do not think  that we are assuming too much when ,  we say that in the past the " News-  Advertiser " has been regarded by the  majority of the conservatives throughout the province as the exponent of  their views and the chief organ of  their party. As no organ can be greater than the party of which it is the  mouthpiece, and the party can repudiate any org'an of whose utterance it  disapproves, we are, therefore, under  no misconception of what it implies to  us when We state emphatically and  distinctly that we condemn the resolution of the convention pledging- liberal-  conservatives to introduce federal  party principles into provincial political issues. But there is no alternative  whatever the consequences may be.���  News-Advertiser.-  Government street cut is not in it in  comparison with the cut prices at Ren-  dell & Co.'s the next two weeks.

SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 10, 1898.  HEWITT   BOSTOCK,   MP.  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M. CP. came in  from Penticton on Tuesday last. He  is making- his annual visit to his constituents. During- his stay here he  visited several of the mines and was  naturally very favorably impressed  with the enormous ore bodies. On  Wednesday evening- a public meeting-  was held in Rendell's hall. Mr. Bostock delivered a brief but interesting-  address. Thos. Hardy was voted to  the chair and D. Ross appointed secretary.  Mr.   Hardy  in   thanking   the   larg-e  audience for the honor conferred upon  him pointed out that heretofore members of the Dominion House did not  ���consider it worth their while to visit  this section of the country. Mr. Bostock  -was different. He showed his interest  in his constituents. " The people here  owed him a debt of gratitude, for when  rig-ht was strng-g-ling- ag-ainst mig-ht  last winter Mr. Bostock stood up feline interests of Boundary Creek.  ( Hear, hear.)  Mr. Bostock upon   rising- to   address  the meeting- was greeted with applause.  He apologized for   the   brevity of the  notice.    It was  difficult to   saj'  before  hand when he   would   be   able   to visit  this section of the countiw.    He scarcely appreciated what an   enormous task  it was to   represent this district   when  they did him the   honor to   elect   him.  It was indeed a  difficult   matter to impress the   people   of  Eastern   Canada  with   the   importance   of   encourag-ing-  the development of the wonderful   and  varied mineral   resources   of  this   sec  tion. It was particularly so last session when the question of securing-  railway facilities came up. The G. P.  R. claimed the rig-ht to have sole control of the railways in Boundary Greek  and protested ag-ainst allowing- Mr.  Corbin the rig-ht tp construct because  Cbrbiri's line could be built and operated cheaper than theirs. After a very  determined fig-ht the C. P. R. succeeded in carrying- the day under promise  of beg-inning- the work of construction  at once. He understood that promise  was being- fulfilled. Personally he  was anxious to see another railway into the district ( applause ). The enormous bodies of low grade ores should  be worked under the most favorable  conditions as far as transportation and  treatment are concerned. (Hear, hear.)  There will be sufficient trade for more  than one railway. ( Hear, hear.) This  was one of the few; remaining- parts of  the country where competition could  be secured. He thoug-ht that the policy . of subsidizing- chartermong-ers  should be reformed or abolished.  ( Hear, hear.) Thegovernment should  g-ive no assistance to railways without  assuming- control over freig-ht rates.  Mr. Bostock then briefly discussed  the settlement of the Manitoba School  question, the preferential tariff, penny  postag-e and other interesting- political  topics. Dealing- with local postal matters he said it was a difficult matter to  g-et everything- into working- order in a  district like this. He had personally  tried to g-et everything- arrang-ed but  he was forced to confess that everything- had not been carried out as well  as.it should be. He had tried to g-et  Mr. Mulock, the postmaster-g-eneral, to  make a visit to this section but he (Mr.  Mulock,) was forced'tb g-o to Kng-land  and his visit had to be postponed until  next year. It was difficult to make the  authorities at Ottawa, understand the  necessities of this growing- country.  He hoped shortly to have the local postal service improved.  Mr. Bostock concluded by extolling-  the general policy of the government  and thanking the audience for this opportunity of addressing them.  A unanimous vote of thanks was  tendered the speaker for his address on  motion of Mr. D,eamy and Mayor  Wood. It was also unanimously passed that we desire to place on record our  appreciation of Mr. Bostock's services  in connection with the efforts to secure  the charter for the Kettle River Valley  Railway Company and also our appreciation of his work as the representative of this district and that we request  his influence in endeavoring to secure  the passage of the Kettle River Rail-  wa.y Company's bill through the Dominion parliament during the approaching session. The latter resolution was moved by D. Ross, seconded  by Aid. Phelan and carried unanimously.  Messrs. Munroe, Ross and Keith  were appointed a committee to discuss  postal matters with Mr. Bostock and  then the meeting adjourned after a  vote of thanks to the chairman had  been passed.  The committee discussed the postal  service with Mr. Bostock. He promised to take up the matter and endeavor  to secure the needed changes.  Mr. Bostock left for Grand Forks on  Thursday morning. He intends visiting the Kootenay districts and also  Cariboo before the session.  H.   HALLETT,  QSarrtrfer, Jioftcifot,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  GREENWOOD,   B.C.  tt     M.   FOSTER,   M. D.,   CM.

JOHN P. PETERSEN.  July 25th, 1898. 99-8 THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES;  A   HARD   WORKING   MEMBER.  The electoral district of Yale-Cariboo  is fortunate in having  Mr.   Bostock to  represent it in   the   Dominion   parliament.    The district  is the largest   in  the Dominion.    It  stretches  from  the  international   boundary   line   to     the  northern limit of British Columbia and  from the town of Yale to   the   eastern  boundary of the  province.    Contained  in this enormous area are some   of the  most important interests in the'Domin-  ion.    The mining-  interests of  Koote-  nay and Boundary Creek, and Cariboo  and    Ivillooet  have played   no   small  share in lifting Canada from being an  obscure colony into   a   proud  position'  among the   nations.    Wise   laws   and  careful attention from the government  go a long   way   towards  encouraging  the development  of those   mineral resources and the district is indeed fortunate  in   having  a  member who is always on the alert to prortiote   its interests. . . '    . ,  Mr.   Bostock  during   the  session is  the most  industrious  member  in  the  house.    He   is   at   his   office   at   nine  o'clock every morning.    The numerous  letters from his constituents  are  read  and answered.    The departments   are  visited and the justice and importance  of the requests  made  are  pointed out.  Mr.  Bostock   enjcrys   the   respect and  confidence   of  the  goverment   and his  recommendations are generally carried  into effect. . So great has  the  work of  looking afler the affairs of the  constituency that Mr. Bostock has been forced to employ a secretary to answer correspondence and keep a  record  of the  numerous requests made through  him.  During the recess Mr. Bostock makes  an effort to   visit  every  portion of the  large constituency.    He meets the electors, listens   to their views,   ascertains  their requirements and acquires  a personal knowledge of   the   needs   of  the  different sections of the   constituency.  Mr.     Bostock   could   very   properly  claim that he had done his duty by going to Ottawa  every   session   and   attending the sittings of the parliament.  Many a   member   considers   he   represents his constituency   when    he takes  his seat in the house and  delivers  one  or two  speeches   evei'3^  session but we  think the average elector has a greater  appreciation for the man who sajrs little but  is  continually   working in the  interests of the district.

Grand Forks, Aug-ust 30th, 189S. 104-4-  t-t*- /I  ��� *-4  i#i~\  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  LACK   OF   INTEREST-  We are forced to come to the conclusion that too many of the residents of  Greenwood do not take sufficient interest in public affairs. They allow matters to drift along- until it is too late to  make any changes.  Previous to the last provincial election several residents neglected to register their names on the voters' list  and on election day complained bitterly because their names did not appear.  For several weeks, the council had  been discussing the advisability of doing city work by contract and allowing the contractor to secure his own  aborers at h.is own prices. The laboring man showed not the slightest interest in the deliberation's of the council and neglected to reg-ister a protest  until the council had finally decided  upon its course of action. The laboring nian appeared to have no interest  in the agitation for having the work  done by day labor.  There has been rumblings of protests from the property owners of Government street for the past three  months but no decisive actions. A  united protest from the owners would  have forced the council into adopting  the views of the ratepayers but the  property owners neglected their opportunity and begin kicking only after  work has been actually commenced.  Other instances of carelessness and  indifference might be quoted. People,  are generally governed about as well  as they deserve. External vigilance is  the price of liberty and so long as  the people, are too indifferent to c.  make proper inquiries into municipal,  provincial or federal matters, so long  will they be badly governed and public  affairs improperly administered.  A man who is too careless or too lazy  to have his name placed on the voters'  list ought to remain disfranchised and  the citizen who allows matters to drift  along until it is too late to make  amends, deserves to be badly governed.  Our advice to the average citizen is  to do less nagging in private and more  frequently give public expression to  his honest opinions.  New Trail to Burnt Basin.  The provincial authorities have had  a surveyor looking over the ground between the extension of the Sheep lake  trail on Norway mountain and the  Burnt Basin district, Christina lake,  for the purpose of making a trail to  the latter promising mining section.  A Rossland mining man who was returning from the Burnt Basin to the  Sheep lake trail by a short cut over  the mountain overlooking McRae  creek, met this surveyor, who told him  that the trail would be cut through in  three weeks. The trail will simply be  an extension of the present Sheep lake  trail, and will make the distance from  Rossland to the Burnt Basin district  shorter by 20 miles.���Rossland Miner.

If the allegations contained in the  following- reports are correct, it is no  wonder that English capital is afraid  to invest in British Columbia mines.  When ''Boots at the Carriforth hotel "  experts a mine in Rossland, the English investor is likely to lose his money.  The Barrow News of August 20th con-:  tains a report of the meeting of the  shareholders of the Buckingham Gold  Mining Co., Etd., of Rossland, which  was held at the Bull hotel, Barrow.  Mr. ���Eomas, the chairman, at once  called upon Mr. Sennett-Weeks to make  a financial statement:.  Mr. Weeks said he had called the  meeting because of a circular issued by  Mr. Kirk, one of the directors of the  company. Thestatement'in the circular was incorrect on the face of it. He  thought the business on the other side  had been conducted in a very loose  manner. Mr. Weeks said the directors  had sent out a misleading statement  and also a misleading report. He  strongly condemned the action of Mr.  Kirk in presuming to report on a mine,  not being a mining engineer but only  a surveyor and therefore not competent  to report on it.  '     Some discussion  here  ensued  as to  Mr. Kirk's authority  to  issue  such  a  circular, one shareholder  complaining  that whether the   circular  was  official  or not, the shareholders would have to  pay the cost  of printing.    Mr. Weeks  said the circular was by no means official ; it was the opinion of an  individual.      Here   the   proceedings   became  somewhat animated, but subsequently  toned down, and it was decided to hear  Capt.  Kelly,   mining  engineer to  the  company, make a statement.    He said  his connection   with   the   Buckingham  mine had  been   a   very   brief  one.    A  year ag-o last August he met  the   vendor of the mine, Mr. Chase.    He spent  a good deal of time with   him,   and   he  showed him  many pieces   of  ore.    He  had come  from   California   to   British  Columbia.   He liked the ore which Llr.  Chase showed   him  on   difiereut  occasions.    He also showed   him  the   location he had made and upon   which   he  had   been   working.     He   showed   him  the rock and he (the Captain)   liked  it.  Some   time  after   he   met   Mr.   Chase  again at Mr. Week's  office,   where  he  saw 14 or 15 pieces of the  ore.    He examined it and found it was  nice   rock.  He had examined mines  for  36  years.  One day he spent five hours  with   Mr.  Chase examining it and   was  satisfied  there was   a  property  there ;   he   was  satisfied there was a mine.   He pointed  out that in every district in California,  British Columbia,   or  elsewhere, there  avmatg  tor  PURE    DRUGS,     DRUGGISTS'     SUNDRIES,  PATENT   MEDICINES,   CIGARS,    AND  TINE    CANDIES.  ~5^*��sp��  Prescriptions carefully and accurately Compounded  Corner Copper and Greenwood  'Streets,  Greenwood, B. C.  was no ore to be met with near the  surface. They might have to go down  50 or 100 feet. He was convinced it  was a good mine and that in time it  would be a dividend payer. All that it  wanted was development. The facilities were wonderfully good. There  was water power and electric power  within 100 yards of it. There was a  2l/z foot vein. If they had had, capable  men on the spot they would have had  different results. He thought they  would be foolish to throw tip the Buckingham mines. They must have different directors over there, and competent  men to go down in the mine and see  whether the work was done.  On the motion of Mr. Mattiuson, the  meeting expressed itself satisfied with  the financial statement of Mr. Weeks,  and the report by Capt. Kelly. It was  also resolved that the chairman call a  meeting at some future time, to go into  details of the working of the mine.  At   an   adjourned,   meeting   of    this  company   some   startling   disclosures  were made. Mr. McDonald said he  did not wish to do anything but what  was really honest, but he knew there  never was any such place as the Buckingham 'gold mine. He even knew  that one man denied his name on the  report. It was hard that they should  throw away their substance on such a  thing.    He   had   warrants   out  for the  apprehension of those scoundrels.  There was no Capt. Kelly. His name  was John George Smith, who had been  boots at the Carnforth hotel. This  was one of the biggest swindles ever  perpetrated in Barrow and they would  get a whole history oi it in the police  court.  Mr. Mattinson did  not   think   Capt.  Kelly was a boots, for he seemed to be  well versed in mining engineering.      '  Mr.   McDonald    said   he   had   been  offered ��50 to save Kelly and Weeks.  It was   decided   to  get  a  Rossland  mining man to report  on the property,  MINERAL,    ACT,    1896.  Certificate  of Improvements,  Mining-  located :  AKE  NOTICE.

Dated this 16th dav of Julv, 1898. 98- m  yh0  r  THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES,  SETTLING THE RIGHT OF WAY.  E. A. Hamilton, the C. P. R. land  ���commissioner, H. T. Wilgress, the  right of way agent, and E. M. Rice,  C.E., reached Greenwood on Thursday  evening from Grand Forks. They followed the line of railway, coming up  the North Fork and crossing over to  Boundary creek. Mr. Hamilton is  making his last visit in connection  with the right of way. He is making  final arrangements with the owners of  property. In Grand Forks he arid Mr.  Wilgress met the council and issued  their ultimatum, which is practically  Mr. Wilgress' first offer to the council.  If the railway is to go through Eower  Grand Forks it must be on a trestle, as  it-is impossible to leave a steep bluff  and run on a level with the lower  town. The station will be on the bench  midway between the upper and lower  towns. The council were given until  to-day to decide the,. matter, when Mr.  Hamilton will again meet them.  In Greenwood the C. P. R. officials  liad no difficulty. The arrangements  made with the townsite people are satisfactory to all parties concerned. The  railway will run along the bench  across the creek and will therefore not  interfere with any private property.  The station is to be built on the bench  almost opposite the Greenwood City  Mercantile Co.'s old magazine.  It is understood that the C.P.R. have  taken an interest in the - Greenwood  townsite. The company is to make  Greenwood the C.P.R. headquarters  for the district.  c Mr. Hamilton visited Cranbrook and  other points along the Crow's Nest  railway, riding from Kootenay lake to  Nelson. He reports that the track is  laid almost the entire distance to Kus-  konook, ori Kootenay lake. All the  Canadian farm hands who worked on  the Crow's Nest road are returning  home, but the Italians and Swedes are  making for this section, with a view  to securing work on the railway.  Mr. Rice's party of engineers have  moved from Spencer's to Copper camp.  They are running the lines for a  branch road between Greenwood and  Copper camp, running also through  Deadwood camp. As soon as. the right  of way difficulty at Grand Forks is  settled, grading will begin in that  vicinity. An effort will be made to  grade the low points in the Kettle  River valley before winter.  J. Roderick Robertson, provincial  manager of the Eondon and British  Columbia Gold Fields Company with  headquarters at Nelson, has spent the  week examining properties in the district. In company with W. T. Thomp-  ���of Midway he went up the main Kettle  river and examined some properties in  that vicinity. Mr. Robertson's company has acquired some interests in  the district and will probably make  further investments.  Owing to the enormous cut which  the city council have decided to make  on Government street Rendell & Company are forced to remove their business to the new building they are erecting on Copper street. They are advertising removal prices this week.  Rossland.  ^vestment and  LI/AITED    LIABILITY.  Greenwood.  Financial..& Insurance Agents  GEO.   R.   NADEN,   Manager.

A special meeting- of the council was  held in the Townsite Company's office  on'Friday, the 2nd irist., the mayor  and all the aldermen being- present.  Tenders for street grading- were  received from D. A. Frazer, Phillip  McVicars, A. D. McEeod, J. G. McDuff  and Thomas Price.  After discussion it was moved by  Aid. Kerr, seconded by Aid-. Parry and  carried, -'that as the tenders received  are so much above the engineer's estimate, none of them be accepted."  Moved by Aid. Phelan, seconded by  Aid. Barrett and carried, "that Aid.  Kerr, Galloway and Parry, together  with the city engineer, be a committee  to engage a suitable man as foreman  of works and at such salary as they  may decide ; also to procure the necessary plant and start the work without  further delay."  An adjournment was then made until Monday. '  , A regular meeting was held in the  court house on Monday evening, there  being present Mayor Wood and Aid.  Galloway, Paton, Phelan and Barrett.  After the adoption of minutes of previous meeting, a letter was read from  Dr. Foster, tendering his resignation  ��� as health officer. The resignation was  not accepted, but a committee consisting of Mayor Wood and Aid. Phelan,  was appointed to interview the doctor  on the matter.  Accounts were received from Spokesman-Review, $5.60 ; Rossland Miner,  $8.40 ; News-Advertiser, $7.35 ; Smith  & McRae, $3.25. The first and last  were passed for payment, but those  from the Rossland Miner and News-  Advertiser were referred back to  finance committee for correction.  A deputation consisting of Messrs.  J.W. Nelson, T. McDonnell, J. Sutherland and R. F. Coates were present  and submitted a petition from ra.tepa.y-  ers "that $3 per day be the standard  wages paid for labor on the street  works."  Moved by Aid. Galloway, seconded  by Aid. Paton and carried, "that the  council do not see their way to pay  more than 32.50 per day."  Aid. Phelan moved as an amendment that  the  petition from the rate  payers be filed ; that the request , be  granted and that the standard wages  be $3 per day. He was unable to find  a seconder, however.  A tender for street grading was received from P. Eund, but the council  decided that it was too late a date to  entertain any tenders for contract work  on the streets.  Aid. Galloway then moved that the  men be paid every alternate Saturday,  up to the Thursday previous, and that  they be paid in currency. Aid. Barrett  supported the motion, and it was thereupon carried.  FROM   DAWSON   CITY.  M. D. Hall, who left Greenwood with  D.   McDonald "for   Dawson  City  last  spring, sends an   interesting letter to  Aid. C. Scott Galloway.    In this letter  c Mr. Hall says : " I have noTbeen  here  long enough to say just what  the outcome of the rush will be, but it is very  easy to  see  that  everything  is  overdone.     The  paying   mines   are   very  limited and chances for new discoveries  slim.    There are   "wildcats"   on  Eldorado and Bonanza creeks, as well as  on the other streams.    From  the  best  information obtainable I have come to  the  conclusion   that  only  about forty  claims have paid.   I will say, however,  that   I   have   seen   several   thousand  pounds of  gold   dust  taken  from  the  claims.      Everything   is    exceedingly  high.    Bacon sells from 50 to 60  cents  a pound ; flour, $10 to $12   a  hundredweight ;   horses  sell  as  high   as $500 ���  each;    lumber  for $200  per  M.,   and  everything else is in  proportion.    The  worst  question   to  decide  is  how  the  mass of people is going to  get  out  of  the country.    It is a great .sight to see  miles of  tents.    But  the  most  of  the  people have little money and  there  is  very  little  work.    Wages  are  falling  every day.    It is not  a   healthy  country.    I saw more dead   men on the trip  than I ever did before.    Dawson is unhealthy and m)r advice   to  people is to  keep away.  We have taken a lay. It is a more  or less desperate venture, but we are  here and are going to take chances.  We intend staying a year."  The only line of Boots and   Shoes in  town at Law & Co.'s.  THE   SUMMIT   CLAIM.  Mr, W. A. Corbett has left for Deer  Park, Wash., where his daughter resides. He will remain there for some  time. Mr. Corbett has been working  the Summit claim in Summit camp  during the summer. This claim will  likely prove as valuable as the other  big Summit camp properties. The  Summit is situated about three quarters of a mile from the wagon road. A  tunnel has been run into the mountain  side for 30 feet. This tunnel passes  through a body of rich copper ore  with silver and gold values as high as-  12 ounces^ in silver and $17 in gold. A  big cut has been made on another  ledge and a timbered shaft sunk in ore  for 15 feet. , =  Mr. Corbett says that the Summit has/  hot been  bonded.    Mining men  have  visited the property and he gave a price  for a certain time.    No  arrangements  have so far been made for a bond.  Mr. Corbett is also owner of the Oro-  Dinero which is under bond to a Rossland syndicate. The syndicate has  floated a company to acquire the property. The Oro Dinero has some wonderful showings and unless the indications prove faulty, it will become one  of the big dividend payers of the district.  Want Higher Wages.  A public meeting was held in Rendell & Co's. hall on Saturday evening'  last to protest against paying street  laborers only $2.50 a day. Mr. James-  Sutherland was voted to the chair and  C. J. McArthur, Aid. Phelan . and  others addressed the meeting. The  concensus of opinion among those present was that $3 a day would be a reasonable wage. A committee was appointed to wait upon the council. The  council decided to stick to $2.50. Mr.  McDuff the street foreman had some  difficulty in getting local men at $2.50'  on Tuesday when work was commenced but since then his force has been  continually increasing.  W. B. Davey and A. W. McQueen of  Grand Forks were in the city this week.  This was Mr. Davey's first visit. He  was making inquiries with a view to  securing a contract in connection with  the city work.  m  Buy 3'our Teas and Coffees at Eaw  & Co.'s. / >v ft.  n ���/���,(/  i?  if  hi  1  -:,)'  GREENWOOD CITY is the central town and supply  point of the Boundary Greek mining camps.
