GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY,   SEPTEMBER  17, 1898,  106  No, 2  THE GOLCONDA GROUP.  A Promising Group of Mineral Claims Located  in Smith's Gamp,  Contains Large Veins of Rich Pyritic Ore^The  Development Work Done*  ��� Clustering" round the summit of a mountain which overlooks the town of Greenwood at a distance of 2x/z miles,  southwest, is the Golconda group of six claims. But very  little is heard of the Golconda group, not because there  are not g-ood showings and the best of indications that the  claims can be developed into one of the big paying- proper--  1 ties of the district���the Golconda group remains in comparative seclusion because the controlling interest is held by  J. C. Haas, M. LO. There is no man who knows more about  the district than Mr. Haas and no one who boasts less. Mr.  Haas won a reputation for himself by the merit of his work  and his mining- properties must win fame in a similar way.  They will never be boomed by Mr. Haas. He will keep on  developing- the property, saying- but little���not half as much  as the property deserves. It may be added here that Mr.  Haas' associate in the ownership of the Golconda group is  Hon. Geo. LO. Foster, Fx-minister o"f Finance.  , Notwithstanding- the modesty of the owner, the Golconda group will stand watching-. The position of the  claims is most favorable. Running- along- the hillside can  be traced a wide vein of arsenical pyrites and iron pyrites  in a silicious g-ang-ue. The outcropping- is first seen on the  Cleveland the most southerly claim and can be traced across  the Cleveland, the Golconda and some of the other properties which are known as Gold Bud, Wild Rose, lyaocoon and  York. The trend of the vein is N 15 W and dipping- at  about. 70 to 80 east.  The greater portion of the development work has been  carried out on the Golconda claim. The vein here is from  three to eight feet wide. A 60-foot shaft has been sunk on  the vein. The first 20 feet is in solid ore but in the bottom  ���of the shaft the ore is broken tip. To the south of shaft  about 160 feet is an open cut exposing- the vein and there  are two open cuts to the north of shaft. Capt. Shields and  Dave Beath are now at work on a contract of cutting- a tunnel. The tunnel was started 200 feet north of shaft. It  was run in 50 feet when it crosscut the vein showing- Al/2  feet of ore. The course of tunnel was then chang-ed and the  work is now drifting- southward along- the vein. The vein  in the drift is well defined and carries considerable white  ���quartz.  On the Gold-Bed there is an immense showing- of arsen-  ical iron. On this property 400 feet of open cuts have been  run. Some work has been carried out on the Iyaocoon and  ���the remaining- properties are practically undeveloped.  After the permanency and values of the ore are  proven, it is the intention of the owners to run a working-  tunnel along the vein from the Cleveland. The tunnel can  be started on the steep hillside. It will run a few feet before crosscutting the vein. The vein will then be followed  through the Cleveland and Golconda. The tunnel will  strike the Golconda about 300 feet from the surface.  The greatest drawback to the development of the property except by tunnel is the unusual amount of water.  However, when the contemplated tunnel is cut it will afford  an admirable means of drainage.   The property carries but  little copper, although in the tunnel just being cut some  copper was found. The value is principally in gold and  runs from $8 to $45. Mr. P. C. Stoess, representing the B.  C. Development' Co., bonded the property last year. He  made a thorough examination and gave a very flattering  report to his principals. In this report he states that the  highest values secured by, him were taken from the bottom  of the shaft. The B. C. Development Company threw up  all their mining interests in this province and Mr. Stoess  was reluctantly (forced to give up the work of developing the  Golconda group.  There is no ground more favorably situated for working. The claims are compactly located at a good elevation.  A gravity tram could easily be constructed to carry ore  from any of the claims. There is plenty of timber and sufficient water, for domestic purposes and to run a steam  plant.  The Golconda group is well worth developing on a large  scale. When this is done indications will prove exceedingly  treacherous unless the group will be a big  dividend  payer.  "*IS>  ���Me.  GREENWOOD.  The arrangement made between the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company and the Greenwood Townsite Company  is a good advertisement for the city. The Canadian Pacific  Railway Company has no sentiment," No body to be kicked  and no soul to be damned." It treats everything from a  cold blooded, business standpoint. The company decided to  secure an interest in Greenwood because such an interest is  likely to prove profitable. It will prove profitable because  Greenwood is the center, the distributing point for the rich  mining camps of the Boundary Creek districts. No one  knows this better than the C. P. R. Its experts have made  a careful examination of the district and all the information possible has been obtained. The C. P. R. has no particular love for Greenwood but the possibilities of the city  have appealed to the keen business nature of the big railway corporation.  A prominent C. P. R. official stated a few days ago that  he had only one fault to  find  with Greenwood   and to him  that was a serious fault.    The fault   said  he,   " is that-I do-  not own 100 lots in the city."  Greenwood would grow into a flourishing city without  the C. P. R. A railway company is not all-powerful. Railway companies have tried to make cities and have tried to  kill cities and have failed, in many instances. But Greenwood has a commanding position. It is an argosy into  which the wealth of the rich surrounding mineral region  will be poured. Greenwood is going- to be an important  commercial center in any case ; but the C. P. R. can hasten  the da3r. The big- railway company has shown an earnest  of its intention to do so.  4&  ����  LANDS   AND   WORKS    DEPARTMENT.  For some time past there were many rumors of grave  irregularities in connection with the Lands and Works Department at Victoria. An investigation was recently held  but as the scope of the investigation was limited, the finding of the commissioner was the old Scottish verdict " not  proven." Since Hon. Mr. Semlin tqok hold of the department it is reported that a startling state of affairs has been  disclosed and the government has decided to ask for the  appointment of a ro3ral commission to make a strict inquiry.  It was rumored in Victoria that prominent officials in  the Lands and Works department had confessed that were  an investigation held the gravest irregularities would be  unearthed. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  r >?  M'  'l\  if  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  Mrs. E. B. Simmons left on Sunday  to join her husband in Spokane.  D,C. McRae returned on Monday  last from a business trip to Rossland.  John McMillan of Rossland is now-  assaying-for J. C. Ivuckenbuel, Copper  .street.  A. K. Stuart, Collector of Inland Revenue, has returned from, a trip toChris-  tina L/ake.  There was no regular meeting of the  city council on Monday evening-, no  quorum being present.       ���  Mrs. R. M. McEntire and family  have left for Spokane, where the children are going- to school.  S. Breslauer, of the Greenwood City  Mercantile Company, is away on a  business trip to Davenport, where the  firm has extensive interests.  David Bryant and partners are down  from West Copper camp, where they  are developing the Golden Treasure  and other promising properties.  Dr-. J. Christie, dominion veterinary  surgeon, has discovered several cases,  of glanders in the district. Ail the  affected animals have been quarantined  Mr. R. J. Bealey left for Rossland on  Sunday. The Bealey Investment &  Trust Company are going to build an  office on Copper street, next to Thos.  Gulley's furniture store.  W. F. Smith of the firm of Smith &  McRae left yesterday for Grand Forks,  North Dakota, where his family  resides. Mr. Smith had a . dispatch  that his youngest child was seriously ill  Work was begun this week on Rendell & Co's. store on Greenwood street.  The work will be rushed in order that  the comjDany may be able to remove  their goods before they are left in midair by the Government street cut.  Geo. A. Guess and ID. J. Harris returned on Sunday from Fairview,  where they experted the Susie claim,  owned by Mr. Guess. The Susie has a  very promising showing. Considerable  work was done on the property this  summer.  The C. P. R. officials who have just  left the city have been negotiating for  lots upon which to build a large C. P.  R. hotel. Mr. Hamilton also tried to  purchase the Barrett block as a private  investment. Aid. Barrett made him  an offer which may be accepted. The  Barrett block is the largest in the city.  CM. Crouse, of Midway, was in  Greenwood last Sunday, having returned from the mining camps where  he collected ores for E. Jacobs, who  has charge of the mineral exhibit for  the New Westminster fair. About  1,200 specimens have been secured.  These have been forwarded to Penticton.  The Joe Dandy on James creek  recentl}' purchased by Mr. L/. S. Moul-  ton Barrett is likely to prove one of  the biggest mines in the district.  Since acquiring- the property Mr. Barrett has had men at work thereon and  they have uncovered a vein of rich ore  over 100 feet in width. This enormous  ore body is well defined., Good values  in gold have been secured and as the  work progresses the copper values increase.

C., intending- to make a career for himself in  the western Province, has written an  interesting- letter to a friend in this  city, from which ; the Globe is permit-  fed to make the following- extracts  relating- to matters of g-eneral interest:  ���I have been here nearry two weeks,  and have found Greenwood very much  as it was described to me before leaving Toronto, except as to the population, which is about five or six hundred, instead of one thousand, as I was  led to believe. The town is situated in  a narrow valley, with rather steep  mountains on either side. There are  mineral prospects in every direction,  on many of which considerable development has been done. Seven of the  properties are supplied with steam  hoists. Others will be supplied as soon  as there is a railway to carry it here.  The number of miners employed in the  district is steadily increasing-, and will  no doubt increase with much greater  rapidity as soon as there is a railway  to carry ore. It is very expensive  to team machinery over the mountains  to the nearest railway point���a distance of about sixty-five miles. With  regard to ore, it is out of the question.  Wages here are very high. Carpenters for instance, get steady work at  $3.50 per day. Miners get $3 per day.  There  is  very little  money here, con  sidering the opportunities for making  profitable investments. One desiring  to loan money can, I am told, get 5 per  cent: per month interest. Yet I am  also told that it is very difficult to borrow money, even at that high rate of  interest. Ten per cent, and even more  could easily be got on loans by way of  mortgage on improved property in the  best locality ; but there is no money  forthcoming for such a purpose. These  high rates of interest do not appear to  be for lack of security, but to be caused  by the facts that there is notl yet sufficient money here to monopolize all the  more attractive investments that offer  and that there are no chartered banks  or loaning companies doing business  here. When the people who live here  have money to invest outside of their  business they prefer to purchase town  lots or interests in  The former appears  vestment. They are increasing rapidly in value, and improved property  brings 30 per cent, interest on the  present values, by way of rent. Then  the quantity'of land suitable for building purposes is extremely limited.  Nearly every one here has interests in  mining claims. Many, of them, I am  told, are worthless. Others are said to  be very valuable.���Toronto Globe.  mining   property,  to be a good in-  DESTROYED   BY   FIRE.  The city of New Westminster was  destroyed by fire on Saturday night.  The fire started about midnight on the  river front and was caused by a spark  from a steamer. Fanned by a fierce  gale, the names spread with such rapidity that within three hours ten  streets were ablaze. Block after block  caught fire, and in a short time nothing  remained of the business portion of the  city. The loss is about $2,500,000, of  which only $1,000,000 is covered by insurance. Over 200 dwelling-houses  were also destroyed. Vancouver and  other cities have sent relief to the  sufferers.  Best   value  for  your  money  in  all  lines at hAW & Co.'s.  W.   M.

The work so far  fias been confined almost exclusively  to Government street in order to secure  a grade for the tramway which is to be  #laid to carry the earth to the flat. The  j| work so far has not proven so costly as  k at first supposed and at the present  \s: rate.will cost less than the lowest con-  i\ tract price.  The rails for the tramway have been  shipped from Bossburg and should be  \ here at any time. As soon as this  track is laid the force will be increased.  Work will be started immediately on  the dam and reservoir in order that  they may be completed by the time the  pipe arrives.  The dust from the work is almost  stifling and Government street is becoming impassable.  Foreman McDuff keeps the men well  at work. He appears to thoroughly  understand street grading. Mr. McDuff was superintendent for the contractors during the construction of the  :Victoria & Sidney Railway.  To-day is the first pay day for the  men. They are to be paid every second Saturday up to the previous Thurs-  dELY-   ���   '; - ��� ' ��� '  '"-.-���   '     ���  UNDER   THE   KELLIE   TRUCK   ACT.  Under the Kellie Truck Act, Richard  Crozier a blacksmith sued Mann, Fx)le3r  Bros. & L/arsen for cash instead of  time check in payment for wages.  The justices, Capt. Cooper and G. C.  McGregor, decided that as no part of  the work on contract held by defendants is within three miles of an incorporated town and as the sub-contract  upon which the plaintiff was working  is not within three miles of an incorporated town, they were obliged to dismiss the case. The justices pointed to  section 10 of the Truck Act, which  states : " This Act shall only apply to  any workman employed altogether or  in part on works or undertakings  situate wholly or in pa"rt in any incorporated city or town or within three  miles thereof."  Mann, Foley Bros, and Lvarsen have  a contract for constructing a railway  between Robson and Midway. The  work on this contract runs through  two incorporated towns, Greenwood  and Grand Forks. It is rather a nice  point in law to decide whether the entire contract and subcontracts is governed by the Kellie Truck Act because  the railway passes througii these incorporated towns. If so, the business of  those who charge large ���commissions  cashing time checks would be gone.  The B. C Mine.  A. H. Harrison and F. C. Barchard,  of the B. C. mine, returned from Rossland this week. They were asked respecting the reported sale of the B.C.  mine for $.500,000, and stated that no  sale had }ret been made. Experts have  examined the propert3r recently 'and it  is probable that a sale is under negotiation, although the owners of the  property are not inclined to make their  business public.

THE   WESTMINSTER   FIRE.  .���It. is .-'generally believed that Sun-  ,da3r's fire at New Westminster was of  incendiary origin. Jack Sheppard, a  demented'farmer, threatened to do the  town because he was arrested a short  time ago. Sheppard is again in jail  on suspicion of having started the  blaze. The contributions to the lire  sufferers are pouring in. Over $20,000  worth of goods- have been sent for relief purposes. Subscriptions from  public and private sources amounting  to thousands dollars have been received  by the unfortunate people. The government of Ontario has placed $2,.500  at the disposal of Premier Semlin for  relief. The C. P. R. has given $5,000  and other institutions large   amounts.  cutting timber.  The attention of the Minister of  Mines is called to the fact that subcontractors on the Columbia & Western  railway are disregarding the rights of  free miners to timber on their locations. All along- the line of railway  contractors have been stripping mineral claims of timber notwithstanding-  the indignant and righteous protests  of the holders.  An ordinary claim holder is not  financially in' a position to beg-in expensive litigation with a wealthy railway contractor.    But the  claim holder  is entitled to certain rights and those  rights should be guarded by the Minister of Mines.  We are quite aware that there have  been serious doubts as to the extent of  a claim holder's right to the timber on  his claim. The Minister of Mines  should remove those doubts by taking  a decided stand. If all'mining claims  can be stripped of timber needed for  mining purposes without compensation  to the claim holder, he should be notified of the fact ; if he is entitled to the  timber the department of mines  should protect his interests against  rapacious railway contractors.  THE   WATERLOO.  It is reported that Dr. J. F. Reddy of  Spokane who recently visited Camp  McKinney, has secured a bond on the  Waterloo upon which a rich strike has  recently been made. Dr. Reddy is  organizing Spokane capitalists into a  strong company to operate the property. Speaking of the Waterloo Dr.  Reddy stated to a Spokesman representative :  ���' The claim has been located for 11  years and before this strike was made  a shaft was down 80 feet and was  showing good free milling ore in the  bottom. This recent strike of wonderfully rich ore was made about 400 feet  from the shaft. Under about six feet  of wash the ledge was found to be six  feet wide of solid blue quartz carrying  large quantities of gold. The vein is  a fissure if ever there was one. It runs  into an adjoining claim the Fontenoy  and work has been started upon it  there. The strike on the Waterloo is  within 2000 feet of the Cariboo- claim.  It is not known at this time whether  the Waterloo vein is an extension of  the Cariboo or a parallel ledge. The  quartz is,not like that in the Cariboo  ledge, the latter being white, while the  Waterloo is a decided blue throughout.  The claim is owned by Thomas Graham, amalgamator at the Cariboo  mine ; Joe Murphy, a well known prospector and miner, and Mrs. Finegan,  proprietor of the hotel at Camp McKinney. A letter received today indicates  that the claim is growing richer. Sinking is in progress at the point where  the rich discovery was made. A letter  from Thos. Graham received today  says : " We have found another lot of  gold and the new find is far richer  than the old. Some small pieces of  quartz are broken and are held together b3r string's of gold. The ledge has  widened to seven feet and   looks fine.'"  HUDSON'S   BAY   COMPANY.  Geo. A. Sharpe, manager of the Hudson Ba}r Co.'s branch at Vernon, arrived in Greenwood on Sunday and remained here for several da_ys. The object of his visit was to inquire into the  trade possibilities of the city with a  view to establishing- a branch here.  Mr. Sharpe expressed himself as being  well satisfied with the business outlook. He will probably recommend to  his company that a branch be established and a portion of Mr. Barnard's  new block on Copper street will be  especiall3r fitted up for this purpose.  H.

The   Rawhide   mine    in    Greenwood  camp was bonded to Peter Hoarsen this  week for $40,000.    Mr. lyarsen is one of  the contractors for the railway between  Robson and Greenwood.   Five per cent,  of the money  is   to be paid   within 12  days from the time the bond was signed.    The Rawhide lies to the  south   of  the Snowshoe and is considered   one of  the big properties of Greenwood camp.  It is of the same character as the other  big* Greenwood   camp properties.    The  ore vein is very wide  and   the   values  are principally in gold and copper with  a little   silver.    But   very   little   work-  has been done,   on   the   property.    An  open cut crosscuts the vein   for 50   feet  and from this   cut  values   as   high as  $22 have been secured.  The Rawhide is owned by Robert  Benzler, A. Mclnnes, of Grand Forks,  Thos. Tighe and Ma^^or Wood of Greenwood. As Mr. Ivarsen is associated  with McKenzie & Mann in other ventures it is quite possible that this prop  erty has been secured for the purpose  of operating it in connection with the  other interests secured by McKenzie &  Mann in Greenwood camp.

JOHN P. PETERSEN.  July 25th, 1898. .  99-8  J   i  '- i ���r.frds-jg^.ttV^rirr'-fri:.  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  There is good material in the municipal council of the city of Greenwood,  but it needs g-overnors. The council  would make mone3r in expending- $20 or  $25 in a by-law to regulate its proceeding's. A clause should be inserted in  this bylaw imposing penal servitude  unless its provisions are enforced by  the mayor. Such a by-law properly  enforced would prove an insurmountable barrier to aldermen whose chief  virtue is garrulity. Greenwood wants  its best business men in its council but  no business man can afford, to expend 2  hours, 45 minutes and 47 seconds in  doing- five minutes' city work.  On Thursday last a special   meeting-  ,was called for the purpose  of deciding-  upon the best means  of  securing pipe  for the waterworks  laid   down   in the  city at the earliest possible date.    The  meeting-was called at 4  o'clock   in the  afternoon   but   it   was 4:30 before the  mayor called   the   aldermen   to order.  Whether  the council were   in order  or-  not   would   be   hard   to  decide.    The  members thereof were scattered around  the court room.:   It is usual  for aldermen to   have seats around a table   and  an alderman is not an alderman unless  he is in his seat.    Mayor Wood informed the  council of the   purpose   of   the  meeting.    The council were beginning-  to take the matter into serious   consideration  when    a   g-entleman    wanted  water for the IDlkhorn brewery and he  wanted the city to g"ive it   to him.    He  wanted a record  on   Providence creek.  After debating the matter  for   thirty-  five   minutes   the   council    discovered  that the right to  water which   Providence had placed   in   Providence creek  had   providentially been vested in   the  crown and that the city had no right to  traffic in water records.    The   brewery  man was referred   to the city   solicitor  for information   and   then   the council  came   back   to   the. special  object for  which the meeting was called.  It was discovered that although   wa-  terpipes had been the subject  of many  discussions for six months the   council  had not yet come to a final  decision as  to the kind of pipe required.    This was  decided upon after a lengthy arg-ument  and then the council tackled the   question of where the   pipe was to   be purchased and the   speediest  way   of getting" it here.    After  considerable  time  was wasted the council at last delegated Aid. Galloway to go out to buy pipe  and all necessar}' fitting's, see that they  are shipped and landed   in Greenwood  promptly.    This was a   sensible   move  for Ald.Gallowa3r has a technical know-  . ledge of waterpipes and he will use that  knowledge    to    guard    the    interests  of the city.    The council were furnished with a detailed estimate of the   supplies needed for the waterworks by Mr.  Shaw,  the   city   engineer.    Mr.   Shaw  who is paid $12 per day by the city was  present at the request   of  the   council  and lost the more than two   hours   and  half wasted   in   talking-   water records  and sundries not provided in the bill of  fare for the special  meeting.  After g-etting- rid of the pipe question  the council decided to  tackle the ceme  tery question but this was releg-ated to  the public for them to decide at a  meeting to be called on Wednesday  evening next.  The economic fit of Superintendent  Hussey in removing- the provincial constable from Greenwood was then discussed and the clerk was instructed to  write to the Attorney-g-eneral protesting- against the removal of the officer  when the district needs him most.  By the time this was disposed of it  was 6:30 o'clock. Another alderman  wished to discuss the dumping of loads  of manure upon the roadway but the  pangs of hunger forced an adjourn-.  ment. -'..���-  We do not believe in riag-ging at city  councils arid we have refrained from i  criticizing the Greenwood council. ���  The members thereof are honest and  conscientious. They are good business  men but a veritable solon would degenerate under condition's which exist at  present. If the council would adopt  the same reg-ularity in conducting the  city business that individual members  thereof exercise in running their own,  public business would be facilitated  and fewer complaints, would be made.  The Greenwood council is all right  but it needs disciplining-, and needs it  badlv.  A   PUBLIC   CEMETERY.  It is now over three months since  The Times called.attention to the fact  that the present cemetery was a menace  to public health. A spiritless effort  has been made to secure a more suitable site but unfortunately the majority of the people did not appear to appreciate the gravity of interring dead  bodies in a plot of ground that drains  . into the source of water supply.  Recent events have aroused a somewhat greater interest and it is hoped  the Wednesday night's public meeting-  will be well attended by both ladies  and g-entlemen. ,  A public cemetery is something in  which all are interested and all should  be consulted with reference to its location. To be a credit to the city, the  site should if possible be a picturesque  one ; the grounds should be cleared and  fenced and beautified. The cemetry  should be convenient to a well traveled  road and no farther from the city than  the public health demands.  All these matters should be kept in  view in discussing the site ; personal  interests and private suspicions should  be left at home.  Aid Galloway makes what we consider a capital sugg-estion with reference to the old cemetery grounds. No  one feels st'rong-er than he, reg-arding-  the unsuitab.iiity. of the present site  and with the consent of Mayor Wood,  his associate in the Townsite Gompa-  ny, he offers to relinquish whatever  interest they may have in the cemetery  site, if the ground is set aside for a  public park. With inexpensive improvements   the present cemetery   site  wouid make a small but beautiful public park. Such a place is needed in  the city. To reserve the land for this  purpose .-ought to be ag-reeable to every  one.  THE   BUCKHORN   CLAIM.  For the last three   months   considerable development work has been   done  on the Buckhorn mineral claim, situate  in   Deadwood  camp.    It  is  owned  by  Messrs.   Bielenberg-   and  Dunn.     One  ore body has been exposed for 70 ft. in  an open cut.    The  ore  is  copper  and  iron   pyrites   in   a    dioritic    gangue.  Another body of ore has been   exposed  by a cut 20 ft.   long   and  10  ft.   wide,  carrying an average value  of 6^   percent, copper and $4.13 iri gold.   A third  body of ore about 8 ft. wide  was  sunk  ;on to a depth of 14 ft. and   the  following- assay returns   were  secured : Copper 10  per ..cent.,   gold- $2.06 ;   , copper  23^ per  cent.,   gold $2.90 ;   copper  21  3-10 per cent.'; gold $6.00 ; copper 12 per  cent., gold   $2.00.    Four  shafts,   averaging 16 ft., were  sunk ; out of  these  shafts values as high as $24 in g-oldwere  obtained ; also various assays running*  from 1)4. to 9 per cent, in   copper  have  been obtained from these shafts.   This  enormous ore  body   must  be   not  less-  than 200, ft. wide on the surface. It has.  been opened up by means of  crosscuts-  and shafts for nearly 1,000  feet   along-  the ore bodv.

C. .'������������ ��������� tr-fi  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  OFFICE   ABOLISHED.  Wm. G. McMynn, chief provincial  constable for the district, was in  Greenwood on Wednesday and took  over A. H. Eawder's police accoutrements,,Mr. McMynn having been informed by Superintendent Hussey that  he considered there .was no necessity  for a provincial constable at Greenwood. East year an effort was made-  to abolish the position of provincial  constable at Greenwood, but owing- to  the strong- representations made to the  government, Officer Eawder was retained. It is said that Superintendent  Hussey.'s reason for the abolition of  the office is that the monthly reports  , show that there is but little''for. a provincial officer to do in this vicinity.  We think the reason a remarkable  one. It strikes us that if the superintendent would consider that surrounding and tributary to Greenwood are  several important mining camps, in  which are employed a large number of  men, he would come to the conclusion  that the presence of a provincial officer  is a very good thing if it prevents any  lawlessness.  It is a new theory in the administration of the law to say that an officer  must make an arrest for ^murder, one  or two for theft and a doze.11 or so for  petty offences before his job can be  considered secure.  In a very short time a large number  of men will be employed in railway  construction in the vicinity of Greenwood. They will be ' men who have  followed railroading, Italians and  others who have but little respect for  law and order. The necessity for a  constable will then be apparent to even  Superintendent Hussey. It is poor policy to abolish an office that must be  re-established within a very short time.  We do not know whether the abolition of the office of provincial constable at Greenwood can be charged to  exuberance of enthusiasm on the part  of the new administration in the cause  of economy. Misapplied economy is  sometimes  worse  than   extravagance.  The Railway Contract.  J.W.Stewart, manager for Mann,  Foley Bros, and Ear sen, the railway  contractors, has been in the city for  -several days. He is sizing up the situation and will let subcontracts covering the entire line in a very short time.  All the work, to Grand Forks has  already been taken by subcontractors.  .Next week a construction gang will be  at work in the vicinity of Fisherman  creek, and by the end of October Mr.  Stewart expects that the whole of the  work will be covered. Mr. Stewart  and Mr. Rice, the C. P. R. engineer,  went down to Midway yesterda)'-.  The Branch Line.  C.P.R. Engineer Rice has almost  completed the survey of the branch  line to Deadwood and Copper camps.  The line winds around Jubilee mountain and comes down to the switches  at the Greenwood station. This means  that the ore from the big- Deadwood  and Copper camp properties will be  hauled through the city.

An effort should be made-to send an  exhibit of Boundary Creek minerals to  the   Spokane  Fruit   Fair.    East   year  the'exhibit sent from   Boundary Creek  attracted a great deal of attention and  did much towards advertising-   the district.    A     similar    or   better   display  should be made this year.    All that   is  required   is   a   united effort.   -Already  several have   volunteered  their  services towards securing-  such, an exhibit.  Mr. Thos. McDonnell  has  volunteered  to gather the samples from   the different  -mines   which   can  be reached   by  team.    If the   matter   was taken up at.  once there is no reason   why   a   credit-  able display of   Boundary  Creek  ores  should   not   be   made at the   Spokane  Fair.  In this connection it may be stated  The -Tjm.es is in receipt of a communication from S. E. Smith the C. P. R.  agent at Penticton, in which he states  that the C. P. R. would like some good  specimens of Boundary Creek ores to  exhibit at the Mechanics' Fair,Boston,  in order to demonstrate before Eastern  capitalists the mineral value of this  country. Samples of 50 pounds or  more put up in good bags or boxes and  sent to.Mr. Smith with full description  of ore, claim, width of vein and assay  values, also distance from railway,  will be forwarded by the C. P.-.R. colonization agent at Montreal free of  charge. The latter will arrange the  exhibit at Boston,  The offer of the C. P. R. if complied  with will do much in advertising the  district. When specimens are being  collected for the Spokane Fair duplicates might be secured for the C. P. R.  Sold   For   $5,000.  Robert Denzler, one of the pioneers  of Boundary Creek, has sold a quarter  interest in the Phoenix mineral claim  for $5000 cash. The purchaser is A. C.  Gault, one of the heaviest shareholders  in the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  companies. The deal was made  through Jay P. Graves of Spokane.  The Phoenix is a fractional claim with  a big showing. It lies between the  Stemwinder and Old Ironsides. Mr.  Graves bought a half interest in this  property last year and the remaining  quarter is held by the McKenzie &  Mann syndicate who bonded Farrell &  Midgeon's propert}'.

There was a large attendance in  Rendell & Co's. hall on Sunday evening last when harvest festival services  were conducted by Rev. Thos. Oswald,  pastor of the Presbyterian mission.  The hall was tastefully decorated with  flowers, fruit and cereals. Mr. Oswald's sermon had special reference to  harvest thanksgiving. He eloquently  pointed out that Canadians had much  to be thankful for as they lived in a  country where, bread riots were unknown and where plenty was within  the reach of all.  On Monday evening an auction sale  was held. Mr. C. W. H. Sansom  made a successful auctioneer. He  gathered in many a dollar for the  church. In this work he was ably  assisted by the ladies of, the congregation who appeared to be experienced in  the work of transferring silver dollars  from the pockets of unsophisticated  spectators into the treasury of 1he  church., Everything sold for fancy  prices, the seductive tones of Auctioneer Sansom compelling bids. A pleasing and varied musical programme  was given during the evening.  THE   WINDSOR   HOTEL   SOLD.  The Windsor hotel has been purchased by Mr. Frank S. Barnard for  $9,000 cash. The Windsor is situated  in the heart of the business portion of  Copper street and has always done a  big trade. I^ast spring the Old Windsor was removed to the rear of the lots  and a large three-storey" frame building erected in front. This has been  fitted up with all modern conveniences,  including- acetylene gas. The proprietors, Messrs. George E}. Seymour and  C. J. Bales, are among the most popular business men of the city. Mr. Seymour is one of the pioneers of Greenwood. Mr. Barnard takes over the  building next month. He has leased  it to Mr. Weeks, who arrived in the  city a few weeks ago.  Mr. Barnard purchased the lots to  the rear of the Windsor, facing on Silver street. The lots were owned by  Mr. Christopher Wood. This gives  Mr. Barnard the property between  Copper and Silver streets, and plenty  of room to enlarge the premises if desirable.  Mr. Barnard purchased the lot on  fhe corner of Ivong L/ake and Greenwood streets, next to Capt. McMann's  residence. On this is to be erected a  tenement house,, containing 10 suites  of rooms. Mr. Barnard has also  awarded the contract for three four-  roomed cottag-es on Ivong JL,ake street.  He decided to enlarge the excavation  to a depth of 70 feet on his two business  lots on Copper street. As soon as the  additional excavation is completed, a  stone cellar is to be constructed, over  which will be erected a handsome two-  storey building that will probably be  occupied by the Hudson's Bay Company and the Bank of Montreal.

Scott Gallo-  Greenwood  If the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company can make Greenwood a city  of 20,000 inhabitants within the next  five years, Greenwood will have a population of 20,000. The company has  now acquired a substantial interest in  the city and its officials are determined  that Greenwood will grow, and C.P.R.  influence and C. P. R. advertising- will  direct towards making- Greenwood the  the most important business center in  Southern British Columbia.  For several weeks Mr. I/. A. Hamilton and H. T. Wilgress, right-of-way  agent, representing- the  Mayor Wood and Aid. C,  way representing- the  Townsite Company, have been negotiating- with a view to securing- some  arrangement satisfactory to all parties  concerned. The negotiations were of  the most amicable description. Both  sides were satisfied with the offers  made, and upon the arrival of Mr.Hamilton last week the necessary documents were drawn up and sig-ned.  The particulars of the arrang-ement  between the Townsite Company and  the C. P. R. have not been made public but it is learned from a reliable  source that the C. P. R. has acquired  one-third of the unsold lots within the  city limits ; also a free rig-ht of way  throug-h the Townsite Co.'s property  which runs along- Boundaiy Creek  from T. McDonnell's ranch to below  Boundary Falls. The railway company is to run its line on the bench across  Boundar}' creek, where station and  switch grounds have been acquired. A  handsome station is to be erected here  and about $15,000 expended in grading-  aud extending- the ground. This work  is to be commenced before December  1st of this 3'ear.  The C. P. R. undertakes to advertise  Greenwood in the vast amount of advertising- literature which the company  is daily scattering- throug-hout the  world. The city to have a prominent  position upon all folders ; in a word  Greenwood is to be advertised as a C.  P. R. town by the big- railway corpora-  tion.  The necessary documents were sig-ned in Mr. Hallett's office on Saturday  last. Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Wilgress  left   on   Monday   for     Grand   Forks.  After settling- the rig-ht-of-way dispute  there, Mr. Wilgress will g-o to Brooklyn while Mr. Hamilton proceeds to  Montreal to discuss railway matters  with Vice-President Shaughnessy.  No sooner did it become known that  the C. P. R. had arranged with the  townsite people than a rush- was made  for city property. Propertyin the flats  was eag-erly soug-ht after, as it is the  intention to grade a street from the  railway station throug-h the center of  the flat to Government street.  KING   MINING   COMPANY.  The new  board  of  directors  of the  King- Mining- company was   completed  at a meeting-  held  here  on  Saturday.  G. R.   Maxwell,  M.P.,   of Vancouver,  becomes  president;   Ross   Thompson,  vice-president;   Smith   Curtis,    treasurer ; Ang-us MacNish, secretary.  The  other directors are Wm. A.  Corbett, of  Greenwood, and Alex. J.   McMillan  of  Rossland.      The   company   owns   the  ID astern King- and  Western  King-,  on  I^ake   mountain,    about    three    miles  south of Rossland.    Crown grants  for  these are now being- issued.   The Eastern King- has a g-ood  surface   showing  and assays up to $32 in g-old and silver  have been  obtained.    The company is  now   having-   its  capital   increased  to  $2,000,000 so as to acquire   the  famous  Oro Denoro mineral   claim,   situate  in  Summit  camp,   12  miles  from  Grand  Forks and eight from Greenwood. This  property was located  some years   ag-o  by W. A. Corbett,  and  2}4.   years   ago  Ross  Thompson   bonded   it  from   Mr.  Corbett for   a   very  large   sum.    It  is  now   being  transferred   to  the  above  compsny, and   Mr.   Corbett  is   in   the  city for that purpose.    Work   has been  progressing on the property   for  some  time past, with great   improvement in  the showing of ore in the   shaft  which  is now down 30 feet.    L,ast week,   Mr.  Corbett states, the bottom of the shaft  on the east side, which   before was not  heavily   mineralized,   had   become  so,  and the appearance was very fine. The  property is largely   a  copper one ; the  gold and silver values  on   the surface  are not large.    From samples taken by  Mr. Curtis when  he   visited   the  property two weeks ago,  17j4 per cent, and  28 per cent, copper and Si.60 gold were  given.     There are several veins on the  property,all of great width and showing  copper,  pyrites   in   abundance.      The  property was  taken  on  the  report  of  Neil  Cochrane,   M.I��.,   who   estimates  the cost of mining, transportation and  smelting at $10.50 per ton,   and  states  that;" with one year of development at  ���:'an; outlay of $25,000  or $30,000,  with  good management,   100  tons  per  day  can be mined, worth $20 per  ton,   thus  giving a net profit of $950 per day.  As  soon as operations are commenced  on  this propert3r ore can be  taken  out  to  develop the mine, and when the C.P.R.  gets the railway finished  there will be  pre on the  dump  to  pay  all  development and  pay   for the  mine.    This is  undoubtedly one of the best properties  in this district and will  become one of  the largest producers.    Vein  No.  1  is  100 feet wide ;   ore  is  magnetic  iron,  carrying copper pyrites, gold   and  silver.    Vein No. 2 is feldspathic matter,  nearly 50 feet wide (as  far  as   can  be  seen)."  Two other veins are known  to  exist  on the claim. Mr. Cochrane is a most  conservative engineer, and the company is to be congratulated on the acquisition of so valuable a property  which has the reputation of having  probably the largest and finest surface  showing of any claim in the Boundary  countr3r. The claim is crown granted.  The 500,000 shares in the treasury will  be placed on the market about October  1st. It is intended to put a large force  of men at work at an early date.���  Rossland Miner.  After a Half Interest.  B. B. Simmons who until recently  was proprietor of the International  hotel in this city is the plaintiff in an  interesting mining- suit which has been  filed at Colville, Wash. Iyast winter  while Simmons was running the International he grubstaked a well known  prospector, Mike kandrigan, to go and  prospect on the south half of the reservation. Simmons claims he gave  I^andrigan supplies, two horses and  $45 in cash. lyandrigan struck it rich  on the south half and located properties which are said to be worth $40,000.  These properties were located in his  own name   and   that  of J. P.   Harvey  who managed the Snowshoe last winter for Patsy Clark. Simmons was  left out entirely ; hence the suit. He  wants a half interest in the properties. <uv  \$.  *       i  I      I  t  [:..-..  j  i  n  i  I  GREENWOOD CITY is the central town and supply  point of the Boundary Greek mining camps, From this  new   town   roads   lead   to   the  DEADWOOD  I.O  SKYLARK,  Lots  are  selling  freely  and  are  a  good  investment,  I   ;  For price of Lots and other information, address  or G S* Galloway*  Greenwood City, Boundary Creek,  Or  apply  to  the  Agents?  < w  A.
