Its  growth has been almost as phenomenal as that of Brooklyn.  East week Gunnysack Jones tilled his ranch at the junction  of Fisherman creek and the North Fork and dreamt of the  happy days when his gunnysack doors and windows would  give way to lumber and glass; this week Jones' ranchis  .surveyed and subdivided into town lots. Two hotels, a livery stable, a blacksmith shop and three dwelling houses are  in the course of erection and a score of tents do duty for  those who have crowded into the new city.  Niagara, according to the proprietors of the townsite, is  77 ������ ' v* < ... *  no temporary boom railroad town. It sprang into existence  quickly but it came to stay. They point to the fact that the  town will get a start because close at hand is several miles  of exceedingly heavy rock work and trestling. This will  mean the employment of a large number of men whose  headquarters will be Niagara. But they also point to important factors that go to make up the permanency of the  town. Along the North Fork and adjacent to Niagara are  some of the best farms in the Kettle river valley ; across in  another direction are the Volcanic, Pathfinder, Seattle and  other important Nork Fork claims ; about five miles northwestward is Summit camp with its numerous big properties. Niagara is a good townsite. It is well situated on the  North Fork, is comparatively- level and is reached by a good  wagon road from Grand Forks which is nine miles distant.  The line bf railway passes a few hundred feet above the  town and land for a, station and switch in the immediate  vicinity has been acquired by the C. P. R.  Niagara is owned by a syndicate, several Spokane capitalists being interested. Geo. E. Seymour, who recently  sold the Windsor hotel, is their manager. He has already  sold over fifty lots, the majority of them in Greenwood.  Mr. Seymour is building a hotel at Niagara. Joe McDowell  is building a blacksmith shop and D. W. Hicks will also  build. Rendell & Co. intend opening a branch store. Mr.  Rendell went over to Niagara on Tuesday last. Railway  construction has begun in the immediate vicinity, Pat  Welch having a contract for rock work.  *�������    jJfe    iSfe'  tif     tif     tif  THAT   STREET   WORK.  The Times was a strong advocate of day labor in connection with the work on the streets and the construction of  a system of waterworks. The Times is still an advocate of  day labor, believing that under ordinary circumstances  better results are obtainable than from the contract system;  but had the Times known that the members of the municipal council individually and collectively would develop  such a remarkable genius for muddling everything in connection with the work, it would have been very loath indeed  to urge that the work in Greenwood should be carried out  by day labor. It ought to be considered safe to suppose  that business men would exercise ordinary business methods in the administration of municipal affairs. Nothing  further was needed. With a competent professional man  at their service, it was not a difficult matter to successfully  carry on the work. But the council succeded in doing everything the wrong wa3r. In the first place, the responsibilit}*  for the successful completion of the work should have been  placed somewhere ; and that somewhere was on the shoulders of the city engineer. How can a city engineer be re-  sponsible when two-thirds of his time is spent away from  the work ? The council by resolution informed the engineer   that  his whole time must be given to   the   city   during  the progress of the work. Why was that resolution not carried into, effect ? It is the worst kind of economy to escape  paying a professional man full time by allowing him to engage in private work while the city work is in charge of a  committee one member of which is in Chicago; another is  away three-fourths of the time, the third is too bus}*- to  attend to anything but his own business, and all three know  but little about street work. The responsibility ought to  rest on the professional man. His reputation is at stake.  Neither the street committee nor the street foreman are  proper persons to have charge of the work. An ordinary  earth mover cares little as long as he draws his pay whether  the work is done satisfactory or not ; an engineer of good  standing,has most to lose. He should be continually on  the ground and he should not be allowed to escape the  responsibility.  East week Street Superintendent Davis informed the  council that work had to be done on Greenwood street with-  out grade stakes, that the city engineer had not placed the  stakes on the street. Aid. Phelan told the council that Mr.  Davis was in error as Mr. Shaw had placed g-rade stakes on  the street. The alderman was probably right but did it not  occur to him that as far as the city was concerned, it mattered little whether the stakes had been placed there or not  since the work was done without them. With the engineer  on the ground such an error would be impossible.  The engineer is not to blame in the matter. The council undertook to run the work through a committee and a  street foreman. The aldermen should now realize that the  proper person to have charge of the work is the engineer.  He ought to be paid a good salary for all his time and he  ought to be made responsible for the work.  iV**     ^S!*"     *-"*��� ������������.'.'  ���5*7?     "sTi.*    ?'<*  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The municipal fathers did nothing- with commendable  promptitude at the regular meeting on Monday night. At  eight o'clock the mayor was in the chair, Aid. Kerr, Paton,  Barrett and Phelan were present, and by nine o'clock a  motion to adjourn was declared carried.  The aldermen left the street work severely alone.  Some bills were passed and the council listened to details of  expenditure, congratulated themselves upon the fact that  there was still money enough available for running to completion Government street cut and sundry other so-called  improvements. No alderman committed himself by an  expression of opinion. The only reference to street work  was just after the minutes were read when Aid. Phelan  informed the council that Superintendent Davis was in  error when he stated that there were no grade stakes placed  on Greenwood street. Mr. Shaw had placed g-rade stakes  there before Mr. Davis was appointed. The council accepted Aid. Phelan's explanation without discussion. The  finance committee reported the following bills which  were ordered paid : Scavenger, $8; Olsen & Phelan, coal  oil, $3 ; Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co., $14.85 ; Smith &  McRae, stationery, $3.50 ; Pioneer Eivery Stable, $4.50 ;  Boundary Creek Times, debentures and sundries, $53.75 ;  Russell Hardware Co., $156.30.  The street committee then reported that up to Saturday  last $4,094.53 had been expended in labor and tools, $1,026.74  for rails and  freight,   $400  was needed  for cars, making* a  total of $5,521.27 to that date.  Engineer Shaw reported   that  $885   had been expended  on Copper street and $150 would complete the work.  Aid. Phelan wanted arrangements made for the purchase  of lumber and the building of sidewalks on completed  streets but no action was taken. a- rt.^i+'r.,*-^'Sr., -jv :f.t.Vl  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES/  $���-  CLAIM   OWNERS   MISLED.  It will be remembered that in 1896  the Turner g-overnment issued an order  in-council, allowing- an extension of  time of 60 days to date from July 17th,  1876, for the completion of assessment  work on such mineral claims as the  gold commissioners believed were inaccessible on account of snow. Chief  Justice McColl holds that that order-in-  .��� council was illegal and claim holders  who took advantage thereof are liable  to lose their interests. The Chief Justice's decision was in connection with  a Nelson suit, the particulars regarding* it will be interesting to mining  men. The Nelson Tribune describes  them as follows:  "In August, 1896, eight  free  miners  ��� E.    Peters,   Dave   McBeath,   Eouis  Conkey, Fred Stamwitz, J. G. McEean,  J. C.^ Moore, James Bell and John Bell  located four claims on  the South Fork  of Kaslo creek  and  performed and recorded the assessment work  on two of  them within the time  required.by the  mineral act.    In July of the same year  the Turner executive passed   an  order  in council   authorizing   the gold  commissioners throughout the  province to  extend   the time for a "period   of sixty  days to date from the 17th  of July, 18-  96, for  the  completion  of the  assessr  ment work on  such  mineral claims as  the commissioners had cause to believe  were inaccessible in consequence of the  depth of snow.    The   locators   of   the  four claims decided to take  advantage  of this extension  with  respect  to  the  remaining- two claims   in   the  group���  known as the Full Rig and  Gold  Cure  ���and secured the necessary  extension  from the gold  commissioner   and   recorded the same in the recorder's office  at Kaslo.    They went on with the^work  however and performed the same within the time required  by   the   act,   but  considering  themselves  safe  in their  extension neglected to record the same  within the time required by the act but  did so within the time covered by their  extension.  On the 7th of October, 1896, the  Sampson brothers staked a claim  known as the Bismarck over the ground  covered by the Gold Cure claim. The  Sampsons performed the necessary  work and then applied for a crown  grant for all of their claims, including  the Gold Cure ground which fell within, the lines of thee Bismarck. The  owners of the Gold Cure adversed this  application and  the  case  came before  Chief Justice McColl at the  last assize  court.  Chief Justice McColl held that the  order in council granting the extension  was ultra vires of the executive council, and that the Gold Cure ground was  therefore vacant. As there are probably many mine owners who took advantage of the extension authorized  by the government they will doubtless  be interested in reading the text of the  judgment of Chief Justice McColl  which in effect declares that the extension which they received and acted  upon is of no value to them.

Forest fires are once more beginning  "to be troublesome to some of the camps  .along- the construction line.  Contractor A. J. McL/ellaii has  brought his wife and family to live in  Brooklyn for the best part of the winter���while his work lasts.  The bridge on Porcupine creek is to  be 200 feet high and 700 feet long, requiring 1,200,000 feet of timber in its'  construction. The timber will be  largely hewn.  A. C. McL/ean & Bros, have about  250 men at work on their heavy contract of two and a half miles near Gladstone. One estimate is that it will require seven months to complete.  Contractor McHugh's camp, known  as No; 1, near Robson, has been pulled  up, the contract which was larg-ely  ��asy grading* having been completed.  One or two others of the same character will also move shortly.  The powder famine is  not  over yet,  ���      ��� ��� ��� C - -      . !  and it looks as though the Hamilton  Powder Company was being severely  taxed to meet the enormous demand on  the contract. That fact alone is an indication of the large amount of rock  that must be displaced.  A. C. MaLean & Bros, now have four  camps running. The 14-drill air compressor, for boring the 3,100 foot tunnel, is to be on board the cars at. the  works in Ontario on October 1st, and  will take about a month to install and  get it in operation.  There are about 225-men working- on  ���Contractor McMartin's two and one-  half mile contract. Of these only 45  are employed at station work. His  work is at an altitude of 3,700 feet, and  he is crowding it as fast as possible, in  ���order to get a  good  start before snow  flies.  P. Genelle & Co. now have four logging camps and one tie camp at work  in full blast. The latter is located in  the narrows, opposite Burton City.  The two sawmills are also running- at  their full capacity on double time, getting out bridge timbers for the new  railway line.���Brooklyn News.  WOOD FOR  SALE  All Lengths, from 16 to 48 inches.

After the dilatoriness and the lack of  system shown in levelling the streets,  the decisive character of the work in  connection with the removal of stumps  is distinctly refreshing. There are no  halfway- measures about the stump  moving business. The stumps go at  once and in their entirety. No roots or  rootlets are left to find their way to the  'surface of the street and trip the innocent pedestrian of the future. This  method may be dang-erous to the lives  of the citizens and the safety of the  buildings but it is death to the stumps  and stumps are an important factor in  connection with the civic improvements now being carried on.  Two of those stumps had been planted many years ag-o in the heart of  Greenwood street below Copper. They  were good sized stumps long before  Greenwood or Greenwood street were  thought of. But last Thursday found  those two stumps in the location indicated.' Now a brilliant idea dawned  upon someone that Greenwood street  would look better without stumps than  with them. The order went forth that  the  stumps were to be removed.    The  o *   '  man in charge decided to fulfill the  order in its entirety. He poured powder underneath the stumps and in the  stumps, fired the fuse and awaited developments.  These were of an interesting order.  Stumps, with a perversity which was  truly remarkable, refused to stay together. They divided themselves up  into fragments which travelled in every  direction. One piece went skyward  and its downward course happened to  come in contact with the roof under  which W. S. Keith finds values for enterprising prospectors and the Kettle  River Dressed Beef & Provision Com-;  pany furnishes tender steaks and chops  to the hungry. The roof was never  built to stand such a shock and the  stump made a good sized hole therein  and found a resting place on the ceiling. Another portion struck the back  steps leading- to the same building and  the steps are now a thing of the past; a  fourth demolished the window in Rat-  cliff's carpenter shop, a fifth paid its  respects to Mrs. Earkin's boarding  house, and a tiny piece found an entrance through a window to C. J. Mc-  Arthur's residence.  Although there were many people on  the streets at the time, no one was injured. This good fortune was due  more to the very considerate conduct  of the stumps themselves than to care  exercised b3r the stumpers.  THOSE   REGULATIONS.  The following is the full text of the  new regulations promulgated bj7- Hon.  J. Fred. Hume, minister of mines :  " The undersig-ned has the honor to  recommend that the following- reg-ula-  tions be passed :  Gold commissioners, mining recorders and clerks and employes under  them, connected with the administration of mineral claims, shall not be  allowed under any circumstances to  take out free miners' certificates, or to  acquire, directly or indirectly, in their  own names or in the name of any person for their benefit, any mineral  claims, or any interest in any mineral  claims of any kind whatsoever, under  the provisions of Chapter 135, 136 or  137 of the Revised Statutes of British  Columbia, or any amendments of the  same.  That forthwith every such person  shall make a statement to the Department of Mines, showing what interest,  if any, he , has in any such mineral  claim ; and such person may, under  the direction of the undersigned, be allowed to take out a free miner's license  for the purpose only of protecting such  interest already acquired.  Under no circumstances shall any  gold commissioner make any ruling or  order with regard to, or take a.hy action  in connection with, any mineral claim '  in which he or any mining recorder,  clerk or employee under him has, to his  knowledge, any interest ; or with regard to an}' incorporated companj'" in  which such gold commissioner, or mining recorder, clerk or employee under  him, has any shares or stock.  All such, matters requiring any action shall forthwith be reported to the  undersigned.  Dated the 7th day of September, 1898  J. Fred. Hume,  Minister of Mines.''  Approved September 7th, 1898.  C. A. Semijn;  Presiding Member, Executive Council.  Work on the North Fork.  ���   "       o  H. T. Wilgress, right-of-way agent  for the C.P.R., arrived in Greenwood  yesterday and will remain here for  several days. Mr. Wilgress reports  that Pat Walsh, James Walsh and Dan  McDonald, three C. & W. contractors,  started from Grand Forks yesterday.  They have contracts for heavy rock  work along the North'Fork of the Kettle river. Their men are coming in  rapidly and soon several hundred will  be employed in that vicinity.  The Total Output.  The Canadian Geological Survey  places the total value of the mineral  output of the Dominion last year at  $28,000,000, an increase of $6,000,000  over the previous year. The output is  divided as follows among the principal  mining provinces : British Columbia,  $10,455,268 ; Nova Scotia, $6,000,000 ;  Ontario, $5,000,000 ; Quebec, $2,063,266;  Northwest Territories and the Yukon,  $3,000,000. '  The plebiscite of last week was disappointing to the prohibitionists.  About one-fourth of the electors of the  Dominion cast their ballots. There  was only a small majorit/y in favor of  prohibition. It is scarcely probable  that the g-overnment will feel bound to  take any notice of the vote as it cannot  be considered an expression of-public  opinion.  The special edition of the Semi-  week^-*" Spokesman-Review which has  just been published deals exhaustively  with the resources of the Inland Empire and southern British Columbia.

The mineral exhibit in the Fruit Fair  is being- rapidly put in place, but it  will probably be late to-day before it is  all arrang-ed for exhibition. It is a  more cumbersome display to handle  than the fruits, grains, vegetables' and  grasses and requires a-vast amount of  work to put in shape for the public eye.  Manager Stuart has an efficient corps  of assistants, however, and is g-etting-  the work well in hand.  A pleasing- feature of the display is  the abundance of labels. It is not a  meaningless lot of specimens. Big-  show cards tell what the rock is, where  it comes from and what it contains  while the smaller labels g-ive more definite details regarding the specimens.  There are ores from Washington mines,  from Oregon, Idaho, British Columbia,  Montana, and some especially valuable  specimens from Colorado   and California.  The whole display is   most  pleasing-  to the eye, bunting- of every hue being  so arranged as to give the best color  effect. The international character of  the display is set forth in the intertwined flags of England arid America,  which are shown in several places con-  spiciously.  The onyx and marble companies  operating in Stevens county were g-etting their exhibit in shape yesterday,  but they will not be complete until today as some shipments have been delayed. The displays are to be elaborate and are already attracting much  attention.  On the same pyramidal shelving the  ores of Boundary Creek mines are being shown. This exhibit is to be one  of the larg-est in the department and is  made up of immense pieces of bronze  copper-g-old ores of that district, typical of the monster ledges of that section.  The Silverton display was being-arranged in a handsome glass cabinet  yesterday. It will show a choice col- <  lection of silver-lead ores, with some  specimens of the recent strikes of hig-h  grade gold.  The Ymir display is intact and is  well labeled and attractive. Close at  hand are the Twisp river ores neatly  inclosed in show cases. Washington  has about a third of the circular shelving around the wall and bids fair to  fill the entire space. Idaho has another  large section and the Slocan City exhibit has a prominent place. The remainder of the display will include  miscellaneous exhibits, including a fine  cabinet of ores loaned by "Doc"  Brown, a cabinet of " south half " ores  from Wilbur and a collection of Artie  curios displayed by P. C. Stoess. The  show will be most interesting and instructive and will be ready for the inspection of those interested to-day.���  Spokesman-Review.  Rev. Father Palmer spent the week  in Greenwood.

CIVIC   IMPROVEMETS.  About a dozen men are at work on  the waterworks dam. The space between the timbers in the old dam has  been filled with stone and a trench is  being excavated behind the dam. This  will be filled with timbers and will  serve as a protection to the main dam.  The dam rests upon a bed of porous  gravel and a special effort will be nec-  essat-y in order to make the dam watertight. A heav3r body of water is likely  to filter its way underneath the dam.  The work is in charge of Foreman  Murra}--. The waterpipe ought to be  here in about two weeks.  The work of  grading  Copper  street  has been   completed.    This  work  was  of the   easiest description,   plows and  scrapers being used.    The  earth from  the upper side was needed to  fill   in on  the   lower   side so as to make an even  grade.    All the buildings on the lower  side   have been   raised   to   the  street  level.  Another start was made on Greenwood street this week. It was thought-  that this street between Government  and Copper had been completed but it  was afterwards found that another  foot and a half was necessary to bring-'  it down to grade.  The wheels for the cars have not yet  arrived and no one appears to know  where they are, consequently the Government street cut remains uncomplet  ed. The business men on the street  have taken advantage of the delay and  are fast getting* off the street.  THE   POPULAR   VOTE'  The Victoria Times publishes a table  showing the total vote polled at the  last g-eneral provincial election. From  it will be seen that the Semlin gover-  ment had a majority of 2836 over the  late government. With a fair redistribution bill this would make a majority  of at least four members in the house.  The table is also interesting because it  shows, the glaring inequalities of the  last redistribution- bill. In the Rossland constituency 958 votes were polled  for one member elected ; in Esquimalt  with two members 814 votes were polled. The two lyillooets with two members only polled 439 votes and the two  East Kootenays with two members 620  votes; Alberni polled 172 votes with  one member ; South Nanamio 246 votes  with one member. Other inequalities  equally glaring are shown.  The Semlin g-overnment should lose  no time in placing the representation  of the province upon an equitable  basis.

The right of saw mill men and others  to cut timber on mineral claims is  likely to be decided. Messrs. McPher-  son & Stout who were fined at Cascade  last week, will appeal from the decision of the magistrates and a final de-  cision will be g-iven by the supreme  court. Since the question is an important one and should be clefiniteh'-  settled either one way or the other,  the minister of mines should see that  the   interests   of   the claim holder are  properly   safeguarded   in   the   appeal  case.

's  Flour  DRIVEN   OFF   THE   STREET.  Government street is no longer a  thoroughfare. The business men finding that the Government street cut  would leave them in mid air have moved as fast as they could get suitable  buildings elsewhere.  Rendell & Co. have moved all their  dry goods, boots and shoes, and clothing to their new store on Greenwood  street. They will carry liquors and  groceries in the old building.  H. B. Munroe has moved to Miller  Bros, old stand and will be found there  with a line of stationery, fruits and  smokers' articles.  Police Magistrate Hallett has moved  his office to his own building on Copper  street.  The bank will henceforth be found  in Gulley's furniture store on Copper  street. Manag-er Naden decided to  move there temporarily until his company's handsome block is completed.  The west side of the street is not so  serious!v affected bv the   cut and busi  ness men will stop there. Olsen & Phelan are doing business at the old stand.  Mayor Wood has leased the Fletcher  building and will remove the postoffice  to the ground floor.  J. W. Nelson is a fixture at the Pioneer hotel and C. W. H. Sansom and  A. S. Black are staying with the street.  Aid. Barrett will be forced to build a  six foot stone wall to keep his lawn  from sliding- into the Government  street cut.  The cut has destroyed Government  street's chances as the leading business  street for some time to come. Next  spring when the town grows to such  an extent that business men are forced  to seek locations away from Copper  street the work of excavating* the lots  down to street grade will begin ; substantial business houses will be erected  and the street will regain some of its  old time prestige.  In the meantime, Government street  is a grotesque monument to the genius  of the municipal council of 1898. The  dedication services will be held in Jan-  uarj' next.  LOCATING   THE   MORRISON.  J. S. McClintock, of Grand Forks,  was in the city this week. Mr. McClintock was one of the locators of the  Morrison claim in Deadwood camp and  is now one of the heavy shareholders  in the Morrison company. As the Morrison has rapidly come to the front as  one of the big properties of the district  Mr. McClintock tells some   interesting  reminiscencies in connection   with   its  location.    To Scot�� McRae credit must  be given for the discover}' of the Morrison.      Scott,   in   the   early   days   of  Boundary Creek, went over every  section and gave many  a. 'useful   hint   to  prospectors.    He told  Mr.   McClintock  of the little mound of red clay near the  wagon   road   to   the  Big-   Copper,   and  gave it as his opinion  that  ore   would  be found there.    Mr.   McClintock took  his   buckboard   and   drove   along   the  road, J. Morrison   accompanying-  him.  They came   to   the   spot   described   by  Mr. McRae and soon found  ledge matter that convinced   Mr.   Morrison   that  they had the makings of   a rich   mine.  So the Morrison was located,   and   the  forecasts of the   locators   have   proven  correct. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  CASCADE   NOTES.  [SPECIAL  CORRESPONDENCE.]  .' "  Cascade City. Oct. 5th, 1898.  Messrs. .McPherson & Stout, contractors on the C. & W. extension of the  C. P.-'R.,., appeared last Saturday before  William Forest and Peter McCallum,  Justices of the Peace, on the charg-e of  cutting-timber on the Caroline mineral  claim on McRae creek. They were  fined $50 and costs.  A wholesale liquor house is to be  opened shortly here by W. Monnier(,of  Rossland.  Gold Commissioner Eambly was in  town last Saturday.  H. E. Moody, owner of the new town-  site at the foot of the lake, is building-  an office in town. Mr. Moody is making great improvements on the road  between Cascade and the lake. He is  also building a 190 ft. bridg-e across  Christina creek to connect his townsite  with the tote road.  D. D. Eerg-erson, contractor is putting- up a residence 28x32 for G-..R.  Stocker.  The Townsite Company are having-  Fred Wallaston, P. E. S., platting- the  flat below the town.  Eli Eavalley received word from the  Postmaster-General advising him that  a postoffice would be established at  Christina Eake at the earliest oppqr-  tunity.     ���*'���._.  East Sunday was a very remarkable  day for Cascade, about 50 of Uncle  Sam's citizens left in hot haste to plat  into lots some unoccupied land near.  Bower's ranch just across the Boundary- line. Some 150 lots in all were  laid out and as hig-h as $25 was paid  for the choice of lots. Duluth is the  name of the town. There is a hotel  and a cig-ar and tobacco store being-  built there. It looked for awhile as if  the boom had left Cascade for that part  but since lots can be had for $5 and $10  the Duluth boom is over.  A school election was held in Cascade last week. A. H. Thompson, D.  D.���, Ferguson and W. M. Wolverton  were elected trustees in place of Messrs.  Graham, Stocker and., Eavalley.  Mann, Foley Bros. & Earsen are putting- up a hospital to accommodate 100  men. '  Ira Black of Republic is putting up a  larg-e hotel.  The Crow's-Nest Railway.  The construction of the Crow's Nest  Pass railwa3>" was completed to the  shore of Kootenay lake last Wednes-  da3r. The work has been pushed ahead  steadily for the past 3rear, and now the  greater part of the undertaking- has  been accomplished. Communication  with Nelson will at once be established  by water on Kootenay lake. Ferry  steamers have been constructed by the  C.P.R. with accommodation to fill all  requirements until such time as the  remaining- portion of the road is completed. The company has two years  within which to complete the contract  and, notwithstanding- reports to the  contrary, Mr. Shaug-hnessy states that  the "terms will be carried out to the  letter.

Any one holding  unsurveyed claims should call at Smith  & McRae's and have their locations  placed on the tracing.  PROHIBITION   PLEBISCITE.  Ottawa,   Oct.   1st.���The prohibition  plebiscite has been taken and although  at the time of  writing   the returns are  very  incomplete,   enough is known to  indicate that of the   actual   number of  votes cast a majority is favorable to a  prohibitory law.    Such of the  returns  as are complete appear to indicate that  the vote cast in the four  Provinces of  ���Ontario, Manitoba,   Novia Scotia   and  Prince Edward Island���where a prohibition    plebiscite   had   been   recently  -taken���is in about the same proportion  to the total on the lists as it was before.  If this is so, prohibition sentiment has  certainly fallen off considerably, in the  first three of  these  provinces,   for the  majority in Ontario is over 80 per cent,  less than it was in '94, in Nova   Scotia  it is less than   two-thirds and in Manitoba 25 per cent, less, the Island Province alone having increased   its majority.  When the last vote  was   taken   only  .only 47 per cent, voted, of which 31 per  cent, favored prohibition.    Taking the  total electorate and the total vote cast,  at the   same   figures,   the   proportion  favorable to prohibition in   these  four  Provinces   as   shown   by   Thursday's  vote has dropped from   31 per cent, to  26 per cent.    The total majority before  in favor of prohibition was 129,000 now  it is bul   45,000,   though the   completed  returns will   no   doubt increase   this,  but there is no likelihood and scarcely  a   possibility  of coming within 50 per  cent, of the former majority.    Against  this 45,000, the adverse majority of 40,-  000 in Quebec alone has got to be reckoned with, when considering Dominion  legislation.    The    Proyinces   of   New  Brunswick and British   Columbia, and  the Territories will show a narrow majority in the affirmative, but   the  most  ardent prohibitionist   is   not  sanguine  of more than 25,000 or  30,000  majority  in the whole Dominion.    Thirty thousand   majority  on   a total voters list of  oyer 1,300,000 will  scarcely   be considered a   g-uarantee   that   a prohibition  law   if  placed   on   the Statute   books  would receive   that  practical   support  from the community without which no  law can possibly be  operated  successfully. : :  The Quebec Conference.  Ottawa, October 1.��� The proceedings  of the High Joint Commission in   Quebec continue to  be  well  guarded  and  practically  nothing  of   an   absolutely  authentic character  has   as  yet  been  made public.   Still with so many newspaper correspondents on  the  spot, and  so many   deputations   and  representative   men   in     attendance,    a   certain  amount of fairly  reliable   information  leaks out. The correspondent of a New  York paper goes so far as  to announce  the course decided upon  in  every  one  of the more important questions on the  agenda, concluding with the somewhat  startling announcement that a general  treaty had been  drafted,   and   in   fact  everything is practically over   but the  shouting.    This, of course,   is   an   impossibility ; if  the  Commissioners arrive   within   measureable   distance  of  this universally desired goal by Christmas  they   will   have   done   well.    But  making   allowance   for   exaggeration,  there seems excellent reason to  accept  the general  correctness of  the   assertion, that the neg-otiations are progressing with reasonable celerity and without serious hitch, in spite of   the   persistent  endeavors  of a   section of the  public press to discredit the conference  endeavors   which   under   the   circumstances can   only be stigmatized as utterly disreputable.    The   hope and belief  is daily  growing stronger   that a  greater measure of success   will crown  the efforts of the plenipotentiaries than  was   at one time   looked for  by  even  the most sanguine.

McKague left on Thursday on a visit to relatives in Vernon.  A. K. Stuart, of Vancouver, who has  been visiting his brothers, has returned  home.  tv. M.   Rice,  the  C.   P. R. engineer,,  was in the city   this   week.    His party  is in Summit camp.  Mrs. A. Fisher and the Misses Fisher  left for Spokane on Monday. They  will spend the winter there.  A.R.Tillman has moved his sawmill from McCuddy's to L/equime &  Powers' site on Boundary creek and  will be ready to saw lumber in a few  days.  J. A. Unsworth, the Midway druggist, is now in the Kerby block with a  larger stock. The Kerby block is a  two-storey building, next to McNicol's  store.  Miss Wickham having- secured a position in the Nelson City schools, has  resigned as principal of the Greenwood  , school. Miss Wickham, who was seriously ill for some time, is now rapidly  recovering.  Try the Bavarian   Salvator   Beer   at  the International hotel. 109-0  Messrs. McAuley & Keig-htley, the  popular proprietors of the Boundary  Hotel, Midway, have awarded the contract for painting and renovating their  hotel building.  A. D. McRae and A. R. McLennan,  two Crow's Nest railway contractors  spent several days in Greenwood this  week. They  this end of the line  are seeking- contracts on  A sitting of the county court will be  held at Midway on Monday next. In  addition to civil suits, M. McMillan  will have speedy trial for assault and  F. Miller and G. B. Eeyson for running a gaming house.. Judge Spinks  will preside.  The Eion Bottling- Works of Greenwood are now bottling a special beer  known as the Bavarian Salvator beer.  The beer is a better quality and flavor  than the ordinal article and is finding a ready sale. The Bavarian Salvator beer is brewed by the Ivion Brewing Compaq7 of Rossland.  W. F. Tye, chief engineer of the Columbia & Western railway, has gone  east. It is rumored that Mr. Tye will  be married during his visit east. He  will also consult the C.P.R. officials at  Montreal with reference to the construction of the C. & W.and other matters.    Mr. Tye will reside at Trail.  The New Westminster lodg-es of the  Independent Order of Oddfellows were  heavy sufferers by the late fire. Their  handsome lodge room and all the lodge,  furniture, books, etc., were destroyed.  Boundary Valley Lodge, I.O.O.F., at  its last meeting decided to help the  New Westminster lodges and subscribed $50 for that purpose.  A man named Wilson was arrested  on Saturday for having obtained goods  under false pretences. It appears that  Wilson secured from W. M. Law & Co.  a suit of clothes and other articles on  the streng-th of an order from Foreman  Johns, of the Mother Eode mine. The  order has been repudiated as bogus.  As Mr. Johns is ill, Wilson's trial has  been postponed until he is able to give  evidence.  ONE   OF   THOSE   IRREGULARITIES.  Elsewhere reference is made to the  peculiarities of the mail service between Greenwood and Grand Forks.  Last Monday John A. Coryell, P. L,. S;  telephoned from Grand Forks for certain information regarding- mineral  claims. The desired information was  mailed by Mr. Shaw on Tuesday.  Wednesday Mr. Coryell went to Grand  Forks postoffice and inquired for mail  there for him, but was told there  was none there. Mr. Coryell again telephoned to Mr. Shaw. A messenger  had to be sent from the Greenwood  office to Mr. Shaw who was surveying  in the mount-ains. Mr. Shaw telephoned to Mr. Coryell that letter had been  sent and must be in Grand Forks office.  On Wednesday afternoon Mr. Coryell  went to the Grand Forks office and the  man in charge succeeded in finding a  letter.  Now there was no stage from Greenwood during the interval between Mr.  Coryell's first and second visits to the  Grand Forks office. Consequently the  letter must have been there when he  first called. The little irregularity  cost Mr. Coryell $2.50 for telephoning  and messenger service.

V. & E.   RAILWAY.  A corp of surveyors under Mr. Ross  are making a thorough survey of the  route between Penticton and Boundary  Creek for the V. V. & E. Railway.  The surveyors are now working back  of Camp McKinney and expect to have  their work completed before winter.  It is the intention of the company to  ask for the provincial subsidy of $4,000  a mile. The company will claim that  a survey is part of the work of construction and that present work fulfills  the terms of the subsidy act under  which bona fide construction should be  commenced on or before Aug-ust 8th  last. A similar case came up in Ontario when the Grand Trunk Railway  Company demanded a subsidy, holding  that surveying- was part of the work of  construction. The courts decided in,  favor of the railway company.  The V. V. & E- Company intend asking- the Dominion parliament for a subsidy at the coming- session. It is probable that they will have some difficulty  in "securing- a subsidy as there is a  strong- feeling- iri ��� the east against  granting- further aid towards the construction of British Columbia railways.     -  BOUGHT   A   TELEPHONE   LINE.  The   Spokane   &   British   Columbia  Telephone   and  Telegraph   Company  which  operates  the   American end  of  the line doing-business here,   has  sold  a controlling-   interest   to   C.   O'Brien  Reddin & Co., Rossland.    The deal involves   stock  to the par value of $255,-,  000.    The capitalization of the corporation is $500,000 in $5   shares,   and   the  purchasers secured 51,000 shares.    The  company's   lines   reach   from   Sheep  creek station into Spokane, and all the  business at present transacted by telephone between here and the   Washing-  ton cities is conducted over its  system  in   connection  with   the   wires of the  Vernon & Nelson Telephone  Company  which connect between here and Sheep  creek.    It is possible that the new management of the  company  will  extend  its own lines into Rossland.    It has   a  franchise for that purpose.    The extension into Rossland  would g-ive it independent   service     between    Spokane,  Rossland, Greenwood, Republic and all  way   stations.    C.   O'Brien   Reddin &  Co. have not yet announced their intention   as  to how  they   will handle   the  controlling-   interest  which   they have  just acquired.    The purchase, they say  was for themselves and not for clients.  HANSON-HOLMBERG.  Mr. Andrew Hanson and Miss Selma  Holmberg- were united in marriag-e by  Rev. Thos. Oswald at the residence of  Mr. A. W. McEeod on Monday evening- last. Mr. Geo. Inkster supported  the g-room while the bridesmaid was  Miss Olg-a Medill.

The regularity of the mail service  between Greenwood and Grand Forks  does not depend upon any edict promulgated by the postal department. It  depends entirely upon the whims- of  the gentleman who has charge of the  postoffice at Grand Forks. If he is in  a particularly good humor, the mails  reach here daily, but in the event of  his supper not having agreed with him  or should he be the victim of any of  those ills that shorten the temper, then  the mails remain in the Grand Forks  postoffice. The Times has a faint  recollection.of having referred to this  matter before, and if memory does not  play us false  the   authorities  who  are  c  supposed to wield greater power   than  the youth who Tuns" the   Grand  Forks  .- postoffice, promised faithfully that such  things would no longer be. In order  to remove the cause for grievance, the.  postal department graciously appropriated the sum necessary to secure a  dail}^ service between the two cities.  Unfortunately the postmaster-general  was so bus3r securing the adoption of  pennyepostage that he neglected to observe that one greater than Wm. Mu-  lock was in charge of the office at  Grand Forks. The Grand Forks gentleman should have been consulted and  his consent secured in such an important matter. The people of Greenwood  are forced to strugg-le under the disadvantages of an irregular mail service  because the postmaster-general has  failed to appreciate the importance of  the Grand Forks man.  If the situation  were   not  so aggra-.  vating it would be decidedly amusing.  The postal department sets aside a certain sum  for  the   conve3'"ance  of  Her  Majest3''s   mails   berween   Greenwood  and   Grand   Forks.      The   Snodgrass  stage goes over to Grand   Forks  daily  and the proprietors thereof are anxious  to haul the   mails   in   order   that   they  may earn the money   appropriated for  that purpose ; but their good intentions  are   frustrated   by    an     irresponsible  3'outh who is paid b3r the   Grand Forks  postmaster to do  work   that  the  postmaster himself ought to do.  The mail   stage   reached  Greenwood  from Grand Forks on   Saturday,   Sun-  day. and   Monday   without   ai:^-   mails  excepting a few papers.    It is vei^ dis  couraging work pointing out these  irregularities. The postoffice inspector  does not like to be bothered.' He came  into the district a few weeks ago, and  one would have supposed that he would  have made inquiries into the numerous  complaints that were lodged against  the service. But he came quietly;/  almost secretly, and stole away thirty  minutes after reaching the city. In  the meantime the irregularity continues. It is probably unwise to kick. It  is possible that if offense is given to  the Grand Forks postal satrap he will  issue,his flat that no Greenwood 'mail-  shall-leave .the'Grand Forks office.  THE   ATTORNEY-GENERAL  Montreal, Oct. 1.���Attorney-General  Martin stopped here on his way west  and in an interview denied certain  statements attributed to him. He said :  "That I went to Quebec to induce Sir  Wilfrid Ivaurier to come to the assistance of the B. C. government is absurd. In the first place, there is not a  way I know of in which assistance  can be given ; and in the second place,  we are not in need of help from anybody. Although in the late election  the Turner government carried 16  seats out of 38, about eight of these  were won by majorities of 25 and under. The real fact is, the election was  a veritable Waterloo for Mr. Turner,  and if the government went to the  country as it has a right to do, Mr.  Turner and his friends could not in my  opinion carry a single seat. We are  not, however, worrying* at all in regard  to our position, as we intend to meet  the house and I believe we will have a  fair majority. If we do not, of course,  our remecl3r is to immediately dissolve  the house.  " With regard to the boundary question, I found that the Canadian commissioners had taken every precaution  to collect all the available evidence in  favor of the Canadian contention, and  I am satisfied that nothing will be left  undone to secure a just decision.  " I did not say to anyone that the  general sentiment of the Pacific province was unmistakeably in favor of a  reciprocity ag-reement. What I did  point out was that a partial measure  might unfavorabU7 affect certain British Columbia industries, while  similar  injury, from a general measure, might  be compensated for by the general  good to the whole province.. Our agricultural interests, f or ^example,'are by  no means identical with those of the  east, and , free trade in agricultural  products would affect the markets of  the British Columbia farmer, and this  ..would especially be the case in the  Kootenay district.  " As to sealing���well, I hope the  Canadian commissioners will consider  the rights of the men employed in this  industry, as well as those  of  the  capitalists."  A Rebecca Lodge.  District Deputy Grand Master Thos.  Hard3r returned from Carson last week  after organizing a Rebecca lodge. The  following officers were installed : Noble  Grand, Mrs. J. Jaskulek, Nelson : Vice.  Grand, Mrs. Robert Moll, Carson ; Secretary, Miss Belle McLaren, Carson ;  Treasurer, Mrs. J. E). Kelly, Nelson..  The new lodge started with a membership of eighteen. After the installation  ceremonies a supper was given by the  Messrs. McLaren in the Grand Prairie  hotel. The members and visitors were  hospitably entertained.  The Spokane Fruit Fair.  There has been quite an exodus of  Greenwoodites to the Spokane Fruit  Fair. Scarcely a day passes without  someone starting from the city to Spokane. Last week W. T. Smith and  Thos. McDonnell shipped the mineral  exhibit and drove to Marcus to see that  it reaches Spokane in good time. They  will also place it in position in the Fair  building.  The exhibit is   a  good  one  and ought to., attract considerable attention. Among others who went to  the fair are : Mrs. G. H. Collins, Thos.  Walsh, D. McDonald, Miss McDonald,  W. M. Law, F. B. Smith, and C. K  Harris.  The C.P.R, were unable to make satisfactory arrangements for the right  of way through the Johnson ranch,  near Grand Forks, and the matter has  been referred to arbitrators. Sydney  M.
