Vol. III.  GREENWOOD CITY, EC, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1897.  54  No, 2,  A PEW WORDS BY THE COLONIST ED/TOR.  After howling for. sev-  'tail, of  that  gar-  THE Boundary Creek Times alleges that the  Colonist prints  columns of abuse   of its political opponents.    L,et The Times prove what  it says by the quotation of a single sentence,  or stand convicted before the public as a base  slanderer.���Victoria Colonist.  vr4 v^< The Boundary Creek Times would will  ingly accept the challenge .contained in the  above paragraph were it not prevented so doing by the  ethics which should govern all controversies in journalism  or otherwise. A few weeks ago the Colonist challenged the  provincial press to make specific charges against the government. It stood ready to act as champion for the Turner  administration against all comers,  eral weeks for some one to tread on the  merit which had been provided for it by the Coal Kings of  Vancouver island, the New Westminster Columbian accepted the challenge and made a specific charge against the  government. The Colonist refuses to fight. How then can  it ask a newspaper to accept another challenge ? When it  answers the Columbian we are quite willing to accommodate it. ' Until then the Colonist " stands convicted before  the public " as a braggart and a bully.  < In the same issue of the Colonist appears a paragraph  that "it may perhaps be well to say once and for all that  under no circumstances whatever will the editor of the  Colonist discuss his private affairs in this paper." This  same editor recently made a brutal personal attack on the  editor of the Victoria Times with a view of damaging his  chances for a position for which he is endorsed by nearly  every other paper in the province. We do not believe in a  "dog eat dog" policy among newspaper men, but this can  be best prevented by resenting such attacks as that recently  made by the Colonist on a gentleman who is held in the  highest respect by every other member of the profession.  The editor of the Colonist ought to know better. If his  knowledge of his own family history can be relied upon his  ancestors have been making history. They have been permanent citizens of the grand and glorious American republic it is true, but no one would ever think so after reading the anti-American editorials in the Colonist. According  to the editor, it is equally true that he first saw light on  Canadian soil but afterwards he became a citizen of the  country whose people he now assails. Before shaking  American dust from his feet the Colonist editor occupied a  similar  position on  that  enterprising   paper,   the  Seattle  Times.    In the issue of April  20, 1896,   appears   the following :  A CARD.  TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.  During the five years that I have been engaged in newspaper work in this state, I have frequently been made the  subject of attacks on the ground of my nationality. I have  never thought them wortlry of attention, but when the governor of a commonwealth deems it a sufficient answer to  charges of bad faith against him made by well known citizens, I am perhaps called upon once and for all to make a  personal statement. An expurgated report of the governor's  remarks in regard to myself made at the mass meeting on  Saturday night, was printed in the Post-Intellig-encer on  Sunday and was as follows :  " Notwithstanding the charges published by an afternoon  paper in this city edited by an expatriated Frenchman, who  is more intensely English than the English  themselves,    and    who    is   not   a   citizen   of   the   United  States, and does  not wish to become one, I am with ybu in  "this- issue."  I was born in the province of New Brunswick, Canada,  where my father's family have resided for four generations,  the first of the name to settle there being Simeon I/ugrin of  Romaiu Motiere, Canton of Vaud, Switzerland, his wife being Marguerite de Betrarii of Belgium. My mother's brother was. John Stevens of Massachusetts, a member of a New  England family that has given 'many, distinguished men to  the United States and among them one of the governors of  the territor3r of Washington. My mother's mother was  descended from the Ackermans of Pennsylvania and the  Eawrences of New York, :- two families which are not unknown in American history.  I came to this state five years ago, this month,, to visit ray  wife's father and her relatives, who, to the number of several score reside in this state, where they have large property interests and are well known. After an extended visit,  I decided to remain permanently here, and believing it to  be the duty of every man who enjoys the protection of the  laws of a country to accept the responsibilities of citizenship, as soon as I had reached this conclusion I filed my intentions of becoming an American citizen in the superior  court of Eewis county, .where I was then visiting and subsequently applied to Judge Robinson of Thurston county for  admission to the bar and was duly admitted, a full record  whereof will appear by reference to the records and files of  Thurston county. Q  If these statements convict Governor McGraw of falsehood and slander it is not my fault.  I apologize to the readers of the Times for making my  personal affairs the subject of reference in the columns of  this paper. It has not occurred before and under no amount  of provocation will it appear again.  Chas. H. L/UGrin,  Editor of the Seattle Times.  One would almost suppose that the possessor of such  distinguished ancestors would be above dealing in personal  abuse and calling his contemporaries base slanderers.  aY&.'     j?fc  iV��-  THE CITY COUNCIL.  Last Monday evening's regular meeting of the council  was a harmonious but protracted one. L/icenses was again  the subject and weighty arguments were used in favor and  against the imposition of heavy licenses. His Worship,  Mayor Wood, presided and all the aldermen were present.  A. Campbell Reddie, deputy provincial secretary acknowledged the receipt of a communication from the council requesting a proportionate rebate of taxes for the year. The  deputy provincial secretary informed the council that the  matter had been referred to the treasury department. The  council filed the communication. A letter from the manager of the Bank of Montreal at Vernon was also read. He  congratulated the ma3ror and the aldermen and stated that  the bank had great faith in the future of Boundary Creek  and Greenwood in particular and he was sure that there  would be no difficulty in borrowing a reasonable amount of  money on the credit of the city.  The question of the city taking over and equipping the  present waterworks was again brought up but after a brief  discussion the council decided not to deal with the matter,  because before a by-law could be passed and the money borrowed it would be too late to do anything this year. The  clerk was instructed however to write to the city clerks of  cities recently incorporated with a view to securing all possible information about floating debentures.  nmwiMu.Hwmum'wwT  ���mwwM��wuM^wKug^^ ii^..1;.im^'4 tT&TSZZ&ESTrVS&ZS^ THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  ^in-u'-'i���if- u-jj'. -i.jiii.j^iwm^����ii>.��wi-!iiJi|J��a.ju�� in��i-v4��ii'j.ffliLu.aiujt  ra��SB iimu.ai!miiMuui nmw ��ija^itiM^..jto.i��^im>i^��M��^uM��iut��BtiHii��g.��^ J^BJU...js����aaBin  Mr. C. i5��. Shaw, C. B., was present  by invitation and addressed the council  regarding street levels. He said that  he had already made a profile of Copper, Government and Silver streets  which could be used for street leveling.  He thought the better way would be  for the committee to go over the streets  with him in the morning. This was  agreed upon and on Tuesday morning  Mr. Shaw and the committee examined  the different streets.  The council then went into committee to consider the license question.  The licenses for hawkers and peddlers  were reconsidered and Alderman Phelan .moved that peddlers on foot be  charged  $25   for six   months   or  $5  a  -week. ..������'���.., '"'������'''���.  Alderman Galloway said it was  simply absurd to tax a traveling tinker  ., $25 for six months. The object of the  council should be to secure the most  revenue with the least injustice to any  ��� one. ��� -,.'���'  The Mayor said peddlers would  pass  '������bad money, would injure resident business men and never come into a town  without victimizing some one. After  a long discussion the matter was compromised b3r making the license $20 for  six months of $5 a week.  At eleven o'clock the committee rose  and reported the scale of license fees  complete.    It was as follows ;  Hotel Incense-.- ..:..$100 for six months.  Saloon I/icense���none granted.  Bottle Incense���none granted.  Wholesale I/iquor Incense...... $50 for 6 months.  Restaurant Liquor License���none g-ranted.  Billiard Tables.....^.........   S5 each for 6 months.

The assessor was instructed to prepare the assessment roll, , the work to  begin not later than October 1, and to  be completed by November 1.

E}., had a rather knotty question to decide in the matter of erivintr  the proper street levels on Government  and Copper streets. In consequence of  there heretofore having been no guide  as to the level of the streets, buildings  were.erected'in many instances either-  top high or too low. How to make a  good street with the least inconvenience to the owners of the building was  no easy matter to decide. Finally Mr.  Shaw succeeded, in giving- levels that  appeared'to satisfy the majority and  the members of the Board of Works  were consequents happy.  Bring in the Ore.  Mr. Galloway has already secured  some excellent specimens of Boundary  Creek ore but the mine owners and  prospectors should take a still g-reater  interest in the matter. Since an exhibit is to be sent from Greenwood it  should be the very best that the district  can produce. It were infinitely better  that no exhibit should be made at the  Spokane Fair than have there something that does not do justice to the  extraordinar3r mineral resources of  Boundary Creek.  %  Government Street,   Greenwood.;  A Practical Tinsmith and Plumber connected with the Business.

Mr. Eeith believes that a  clerk  in holy orders can enjoy a joke like an  ordinary nian.    He tries to take a sunny view of life and to enable him to do  this he keeps a horse that would excite  the risibilities of an old-time, old fashioned sanctimonious Presbyterian minister.    The   horse   is   all   rig-ht   as   a  means  of locomotion   but   he  is  constructed on such wonderful plans that  a Colville Indian must  have  been  the  architect.    Minus     a   tail,    having-   a  double pair of ears and numerous large  brands, he is a most peculiar  piece  of  horseflesh.    The parson  can  ride him  all rig-ht but a stranger has to be careful.    On account of the caudal extremity being missing, the centre  of  gravity in this horse is  where it ought not  to be.    Consequently unless a stranger  is careful he is apt to upset the horse's  equilibrium and find himself once more  on  terra  firma.    Mr.   L,eith  g-ave the  horse to Mr. Garland, the owner of Anaconda, last week and both went up to  look at some mining-properties in Kim-  berly camp.    On  the  way  up the parson  rode  behind and  when an opportunity presented itself he g-ave the tailless charger a vicious prod.    The result  was that  Mr.   Garland  expressed surprise   at  the  amount  of spirit in   the  pony.    On the return trip^the real estate man mildly   hinted to   the parson  that  the latter had  better go  ahead.  The parson took the   hint and  putting-  spurs to his horse  readied  Greenwood  in g-ood time.  Mr. Garland did not fare so well.  He dismounted to lower some bars at  Wallace's ranch and then this wonderful animal undertook to walk home  without carrying any weight. Mr.  Garland could get within a few feet of  him when he would start out on a tantalizing- trot. This was kept up until  the addition was reached. Then the  horse considered it would be undignified to allow a prominent citizen of Anaconda to walk into Greenwood and  allowed himself to be caught. Mr.  Garland being human was not a little  provoked, but being a Presbyterian  was prevented from using strong language. He again got into the saddle  but forgot that his charg-er was lacking  at an essential point. The result was  obvious. The forward end of the animal took a downward movement and  the real estate man took a flying leap  into the soft earth of the addition.  Mr. Eeith intends leaving for the  east in a few weeks but before he goes  he will secure several photos of his four  footed curiosity and exhibit them to  the college boys as a true likeness of a  wonderful animal that is indig-enous to  Boundary Creek district.  The Mining Outlook.  The outlook for Boundary Creek district is most encouraging. Without  taking into consideration the fact that  there are two railway survey parties in  the field, owners of mining- property  have wisely arrived at the conclusion  that instead of waiting for a railway,  the trade will force railway companies  to build into the  district.    Permanent  mining machinery is coming- into the  district ; larg-e contracts for work are  being awarded and many claims are  being crown granted.  Every one appears to have renewed  confidence, money is being- invested  more freely both in purchasing and  developing properties. When a railway does come, it will find more business than it can handle.  Real Estate Active.  During- the past few weeks there was  considerable demand for real estate in  Greenwood and several lots changed  hands at g-ood figures. Mr. Geo. R.  Naden, manager for Bealey & Co.,  bought five lots at different times during the week and re-sold them at an  advance. Several inquiries have also  been made reg-arding-; Greenwood real  estate. ,  Attempted Robbery.  Word comes from Nelson, Wash.,  that an attempt was made on Tuesday  last to hold up J. Privitt on Xa .Fleur  Mountain near Nelson. Mr. Privitt is  president of the Big Four Mining &  Milling Co., which owns the Big Four  mine on Ea. Fleur Mountain. While  on his way from Nelson to the mine he  was held up by an unmasked highwayman some four miles from the town.  Mr., Privitt and the highwayman exchanged shots, the former having a 44-  cal. revolver and the latter a Winchester rifle. A bullet went through  Privitt's hat and he is supposed to have  hit the robber twice. The latter started through the woods and Mr. Privitt  afterwards heard a shot and it is supposed that the robber shot himself to  end his sufferings. About 20 men are  out trying to locate the robber or his  body.    ' e      ���       ��� '-���      ' ...    :��� ��� -,'  Keep the City Clean.  There are places in Greenwood which  are in anything but a good sanitary  condition. Some people appear to have  become imbued with the idea that we  are so situated that the laws of sanitation can be disregarded with impunity.  A few summonses from the constable  would at least convince them that  there are others who do not share those  views and are determined that the  health of the city shall not be endangered by the carelessness or indifference of the few. Those interested in  the welfare of the city should see that  it is kept clean and healthy. If kept  in such a condition the chances for  an epidemic are very remote..  Highest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.  A Pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder.  40 YEARS THE STANDARD-  Mr. Russell of the firm of Dier, Davidson & Russell in an interview with  the Victoria Times has this to say reg-arding- the Tinhorn mine in Fair-  view: ���''���.-  " The Tinhorn bids fair to prove the  greatest gold producer in British  Columbia. Unless ail available evidence is wrong, unless all knowledge  and theory regarding minerals is valueless, the Tinhorn will take that position among the mines of this province.  Just here I wish to correct a statement  appearing- in the Rosslander and reproduced in the Times regarding the Tinhorn. Instead of their being 500 feet  of work done on the Tinhorn, as stated,  1000 feet is the correct figure. Then,  again, there are about 10,000 tons of  ore on the dump, estimated to be worth  about $100,000.  The. last finishing touches are being  put oh the mill, and it is expected to  start running about the 1st of October  next. We have heard it remarked that  this is a " boom " property. Now, it  may be mentioned that not one share  of promoters' stock is for sale, npr  would any of the holders take $5 for it.  Parties desirous of purchasing Tinhorn  stock have beeti repeatedly disappointed, none being for sale at any price.  The property is looking better every  day. An assay of ore taken across one  of the tunnels by me g-ave an average  estimate of $213 to the ton."  A Fairview Company.  The British Columbia Review contains the prospectus of the Fairview  Gold Mining Company. The directors  are the Earl of Kintore and other  prominent Englishmen.

SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 18, 1897.     '  A-MODERN EVICTON.  There was considerable excitement at  the  Mother  I^ode  in Deadwood camp  last week and as a result Mr. Fred Keffer, ��� manager of  the  Boundary Mines  Co., and Mr. A. H. I^awder, Provincial  Police Officer, appeared before  Mr.  J.  Hamill, J. P., to answer to a charg-e of  housebreaking-  and  theft.    There was  no  one  present  to  prosecute,   no evidence for   the prosecution   and  consequently   the   charge   was   at once dis-  1 missed.    The circumstances leading up  to   such   an   unusual   proceeding   are  briefij^ as follows :    When the   Mother  Ivode mine was surve3;'ed it was  found  that the cabins erected by  Mr.   Keffer  for    the   company   were   outside   the  boundary   lines.    Mr.    Martin   "Walsh  who  was foreman at the Mother  lyode  for several months, located   a  fraction  and had it duly recorded.    A short time  ago  Mr.   Keff'er gave  a  contract,   for  work  to   McMillan   &   Co.,    and they  wished to   have the use of the   cabins.  Mr. Walsh was  living-  in one of  them  and he refused to allow an}r  one to use  them   stating   that  the3r were  on   his  property and he would  prosecute   trespassers.    Mr.   Keffer was informed of  the matter   arid  he at  once   consulted  Chief Constable McMynn. That gentleman instructed Officer I^awder to  proceed to Deadwood   camp   and   see that  the  peace  was   kept  while Mr. Keffer  moved the cabins to the  Mother   Ivode  ground.    Mr. Keffer proceeded to carry  out this work and with  the  assistance  of seven or eight men succeeded in getting the cabins   to   the   Mother   lyode.  Previous   to   this he sent a note to Mr.  Walsh  to come and get  his   household  g-oocls as the cabins would be removed.  Mr. Walsh refused to accept  the  note  and then a messeng-er was sent to   him  to give him the   information   verbally,  " The Irish have stood it for years and  I  guess  I   can," was  the  reply.    Mr.  Walsh's g-oods were left on the ground.  A pass book was found underneath the  pillow with a ten   dollar   bill   inclosed.  Mr.   Keffer took   charge   of this, to be  handed to Mr. Welsh.   "When the latter  came for his goods, he stated that $318  secreted in   a   stocking   was    missiny.  He  consulted   Mr.   Leamy,    barrister, i  and   summonses were issued charging  Mr. L-awder and Mr. Keffer with housebreaking-   and     stealing-.    Afterwards  Mr. Walsh went to Mr. Hamill to withdraw the charge but this   could  not be  done in a criminal case.  When the case was called on Monday, Mr. Jweam3r stated that he had not  seen Mr.   Walsh   since   Saturday,   and  consequently having no instructions  he would withdraw from the case altogether.  A. H. Iyawder was the only witness.  He said that on Sunday Mr. Walsh  came to him and said that he (Walsh)  was very sorry for what happened.  He knew Mr. l-awder was only there  as a matter of duty and he intended to  withdraw the charge against all  parties.  Mr. Hamill said that under the circumstances there was nothing for him  to do but dismiss the case, Mr. Walsh  to pay all costs.  THE  RAILWAY SURVEY.  All doubt as to the authority of the  report that Heinze's surve3,'ors are in  the field was set at rest by the arrival  of a survey party of 18 men in charge  of Mr. J. G-. Sullivan, P. I,. S. The  party arrived on Sunday last and  remained at the Palace hotel, Anacon-0  da, until Monday evening when they  left for the summit near Camp McKinney.-', ... -,"   ;''���'--.   .,". ���   '��� .'  Mr. Sullivan was seen by a Times  representative and he was quite willing to give any information regarding  the work. He said that his party  would begin at the summit near Camp  McKinney and work both ways so as to  finish on the high altitude before snow  falls. Their work will include the  putting of survey stakes, along the  route, making a record of the necessary  curves, securing all the field notes for  a plan of the railway and all data necessary to the beginning of active construction. The other party which, Mr.  Sullivan stated, is now in charg-e of  Surveyor Q. R. Pair, is now working from the summit on the other side  of Christina Lake. The survey will be ^  completed within three months and if  the two parties cannot complete the  work in that time another party will  be sent in.  Mr. Sullivan was asked when active  railway construction would begin and  he replied that he could not speak au-  thbritively on the matter, but the survey would cost considerable money  arid it therefore showed a bonafide intent to begin construction at an early  date. As far as he knew the route  would be as already mapped out and as  far as Boundary Creek district is concerned would run along Boundary  Creek to Bholt, to Pass creek and down  the North Fork. The approximate  length of the road from Penticton to  Trail is 200 miles. Mr. Sullivan expects to complete the survey to Greenwood in about 60 days.  H.   HALLETT,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.

A Runaway Accident.  Dr. Jakes looked,; the unique if not  the distinguished family physician this  week as he went to see his patients  with his head tied up and limping  along with the aid of crutches. As the  doctor expresses it he appears to have  secured a genuine monopoly of all the  bruises and sprains and breaks that  are attendant upon travel through the  mountains. It does not make a particle of difference to the patients, however, because he will be by their bedside unless he should happen to get his  neck broken���a broken leg or a twisted  knee does not appear to make much  difference to him.  The doctor and Mrs. Jakes were driving early Tuesday morning to Grand  Forks when, going down the grade,  the pole worked loose from the neck-  yoke and the buggy ran against the  horses who started down the grade.  As there was no means of guiding the  rig the doctor grabbed his wife and  jumped. Fortunately Mrs. Jakes es-  caped.unhurt but the doctor twisted his  knee and secured several body bruises.  The horses were captured and but little damage was done to the buggy.  Dr. Jakes says his injuries are not very  serious and his many friends hope that  he will shortly be able to visit the sick  without the aid of crutches.  A COOK BOOK FREE.

A good indication of renewed confidence in the district in general and  Greenwood in particular is to be found  in the fact,that there are more buildings in the course of erection at present than at any other time in the history of Greenwood. Experienced men  would be slow to invest'their money in  building-s of, a permanent character  were they not confident of the future,  particularly when the majority of the  structures are being- erected to rent or  lease. Good progress is being- made  on Mr. Hamill's new three story hotel.  It is his intention to run a flat roof  over his other building- and also make  it three storeys high.  Mr. C. H. Sansom has prepared plans  for a handsome two story dwelling-"  house to be erected for Mr. Iybuis Bosshart on Gold street. The residence is  to be 42x24 and will contain eight  rooms. It will be furnished with all  modern conveniences.  Mr. Shaw, C. E., is building- a larg-e  residence at the upper end of the addition. This is an ideal residential spot,  and it would be safe to predict that it  will soon become the most popular residential portion of the city. Mr. Caul-  field has purchased a lot and will also  build there.  ' A Victoria capitalist intends building two or three houses on his lots in  Greenwood this fall. There are several others  shortly.  who   contemplate   building-  Trade Licenses.  The schedule,of license fees which.is  published in this issue should give but  very little dissatisfaction. Taxation  in any form is not a pleasant thing- and  a direct tax such as a license fee strikes  an ordinary tax payer as being- the  most unpleasant. Under the present  system of taxation, however, licenses  can scarcel}r be avoided and the council appear to keep pretty well in view  that while a revenue is necessary,  licenses should not be placed so high  that legitimate trade will be restricted.  After all taxation should be directed  principally towards the land. It  alwajrs struck us as being- incongruous  to fine a man because he is enterprising and industrious.  The Province's Klondyke Map.  It is scarcely possible that the bonuses given by the Victoria Board of  Trade and the provincial government  to a publisher of a Klondyke map was  used in subsidizing- the postoffice officials, but for some reason or other the  rival map published by the Province  Company did not reach us until a day  or two ag-o although mailed early last  month. Our mail service at best is  anything- but satisfactory but in this  instance there must have been special  reasons for the unusual delay. The  Province's Klondyke map is a good  thing- however, and it is better to receive it late than never. Those who  still have the Klond3'ke fever and there  are a few of them left should secure a  cop3r. The}7' will find there a lot of useful information.

A Trail correspondent sends out the  following- regarding the survey of the  line from Trail to Penticton :  The survey work on the road from  Trail to Penticton is being- pushed as  rapidly as possible, and it is now expected to have all maps complete before winter sets in, so that the work of  construction can beg-in in the spring-.  The distance to Penticton is about 200  miles and the completion of this road  will be a matter of great interest to the  entire district.  Mr. Heinze, of the Columbia & Western, sent out engineers on the survey  some time ago, and they succeeded in  finding- a much easier pass throug-h the  mountains than any hitherto discovered in., that section. . The pass they  found requires a. climb of about 4,000  feet, whereas the lowest that had been  found up to that time was something-  over 7,000 feet. This pass was named  Heinze pass, in honor of the man for  whom the work was done.  The. whole country is very hilly and  in many places almost entirely unexplored. The most difficult portion of  the survey will probably be along- the  streams which flow into lower Arrow  lake and McRae creek, forming- a divide about 30 miles in length. Heinze  pass is about 13 miles long-, and when  the grade throug-h there is completed  the most difficult part of the work will  be over. From this pass the road will  run down Christina lake to Cascade  City, across Christina creek and along  the north bank of Kettle river. From  there it will pass throug-h a comparatively level country until Penticton  is reached.  There are two survejdng parties of  18 or 20 men each on the ground and  the work of surveying- will commence  from the summit, so that the heavy  snows there may be avoided. From  there they will proceed to Dog- creek  and thence to Robson, 14 miles, thus  .making- a direct line from Trail to  Penticton. ���  An engineer went  over   the  ground  early last spring- and took'the altitudes  of different points.    They   will  give a  fairly g-ood idea of   the   nature   of  the  country  from   Grand   Forks  to   Camp  McKinney.    His fig-ures follow :  Grand Forks..  1,650 feet.  Fisherman creek.....  1,900 "  Brown's creek  2,200 "  Greenwood Citv  2,450 "  Boundary Falls  2,250 "  Rock Creek  1,800 "  Camp McKiunev  4.500 "  McBride's ranch ..3,200 "  Water Records.  Next Saturday, September 25, Mr.  C. A. R.Iyambry, Gold Commissioner,  and Mr. L/eonard Norris, Government  Atrent will be at the Courthouse, Grand  Forks, for the purpose of hearing- and  adjudicating- upon the applications for  water records which have been made to  them. It is understood that there are  several applications for water records,  including one from the " Greenwood  City Waterworks Company" for the  use of the waters of Boundarv Falls.  A  Daily Mail Service.  The Midway Advance states : " We  wish to heartily endorse the efforts being- made by the people of Grand Forks  and Greenwood to have an official daily  mail service established between those  points. This has long- been a necessit3r  and should have been established at  least a 3rear ag-o, and it is neither rig-ht  nor proper that private citizens should  have to pay for the same. In our opinion the people of this district are now  justly entitled to a daily service between    Grand   Forks   and   Penticton.  The growth and importance of this section fully- warrant it and the matter  should be brought to the notice of Mr.  Hewitt Bostock by representative people from Camp McKinney eastwards,  without any further delay."  The Times heartily agrees with, the  Advance that the district lying- between  Penticton and Grand Forks is of sufficient importance to demand a daily  service. It appears a difficult matter  to convince the officials however. The  citizens of Greenwood have privately  subscribed sufficient money to carry a  daily mail both Ways between Greenwood and Grand Forks but the postmaster at Grand Forks refuses to  .handle the extra mail until he receives  instructions from Ottawa.  LOCAL  NOTES.  The Republic Mining- Conipany  have some men at work sinking- on the  Republic. ������.'..-"'  Hewitt Bostock, M. P., is making- a  tour throug-h, I}ast Kootenay. In all  probability he will visit Boundary  Creek this fall.  Georg-e Jefferson and 10. B. Jacobs  two mining- nien of Oakesdale passed  throug-h Greenwood yesterday on their  way to Camp McKinney.  An acre of ground in the Greenwood  cemetery has been deeded to the trustees of the Oddfellows' lodge by Mr.  Robt. Wood, for use as a burial ground.  The Greenwood base ball club gave  a ball in Nelson & Tynan's hall last  evening. There was a large attendance and all spent a pleasant evening.  There are still several British subjects resident in the district who are  not on the provincial voters'list. They  should forward their applications at  once.  A. Irwin, of Nicola, has been appointed Indian Agent, to succeed J. B.  L/eignton who resigned to accept the  position of superintendent of the new  B.C. Express Company.  Grand Forks is excited over a breach  of promise suit in which prominent  people are the principals. In the absence of particulars the names are  withheld until next, week.  Mrs. C. Scott Galloway and family  left on Wednesday for Spokane where  they will remain until after the Fruit  Fair. Mr. Gallowa3r will join them a  few days before the Fair opens.  Provincial Police Officers Ivawder  and Gardom took a trip through the  mining camps this week in search of  two toughs who are wanted on the  other side. They found no clue to the  men.  Rendell & Co. have received the  greater portion of their stock of liquors  and cigars and are now in a position to  sell by wholsale. They are this week  advertising pure apple cider and pure  cider vineg-ar.  Mr. Fred Shonquist left on Saturday  for Vernon. Upon his return he and  Mrs. Shonquist will leave for Butte  where they will spend the winter. Mr.  Shonquist sa}rs he will go to the Klon-  cWke in the spring.  The Rossland Miner of recent date  states that " A. H. Woodhouse, the  mining expert, over-exerted himself  during his recent visit to Boundary  Creek district, and the result is that he  is under a physician's care at the Allan  House."  Fred. Carpenter, of Wateryille, was  the first to take out a hawker's license  to sell produce in the City of Greenwood. Mr. Carpenter has many good  customers in the city and made no  complaint regarding the payment of  the license.  You can get a nice clean bed  at  the  Windsor. *  City Debentures.  Now that the city fathers are seriously considering the question of floating a loan it will be interesting to learn  how well other newly incorporated  cities succeeded in this respect. The  city of Nelson debentures were for five  per cent, and they were sold to the  British Columbia Corporation, T/td.,  for 98, or for $50,000 worth of debentures the city of Nelson secured in cash  $49,000. Rossland debentures were issued at 6 per cent, and they were sold  in Toronto at par, the amount realized  in cash being $49,900. Nelson made  the better bargain as Rossland only  got $900 more in cash and the difference in interest between five and six  per cent, will amount to nearly $10,000.

Teaming- on the Shortest Notice.  Greenwood City, B.C.  "lV<::  M?flJg^3HBftfe&^'l^ The Visit of Politicians.  Althoug-h a hurried one, the visit of  Mr. Maxwell and party to the district  last week should be productive of g-ood.  Mr. Maxwell denied having- any political object in view, but he is too astute  a politician not to make his tour a  voyage of discovery. Politically he  was sure to find out that while the  great mass of the people are opposed  to the Turner government they are  also disappointed in the opposition.  The electors have been patiently waiting for those whose duty it is to make  a determined effort to unite all the  forces opposed to the provincial government. If Mr. Maxwell is going to  take a hand in the next provincial campaign���and there is no one that can  fight more aggressively than he���he  has surely\ discovered that before the  fight can be successfully made, the  people must know who the opposition  leaders are and what they intend to do.  If this is done there can, be no doubt  regarding the result. There rwill not  be enough of the Turner party left to  make a respectable opposition.  The Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern  Railway and Navigation Company are  going to make a determined fight for a1  charter and a Railway subsidy next  year. Whether the company has any  backing or not, is a debatable question  o but they have what is more advantageous than a bank account these days  ���-a , strong political influence in the  Dominion house. If they cannot get  what they want themselves they may  again succeed in preventing their opponents from getting any assistance.  Mr. Maxwell must have discovered  that the people in the district affected  love a railway more than they hate  Mr. Heinze and that members of the  house endanger their political lives,  federal or provincial, if by their quar-w  rels they again succeed in preventing  the construction of a railway into this  district.  It would be well if other members of  parliament made voyag-es of discovery . If they made themselves acquainted with the resources and the needs of  the different districts, they would more  rapidly come to the conclusion that  personal schemes should be made subordinate to the public interest.  Mr. Hall Returns.  Mr. J. H. Hall, a prominent mining  man of Butte, is again examining  mines in the vicinity of Greenwood.  Mr. Hall visited Boundary Creek district about two months ago and in an  interview with The Times reporter he  stated that in his opinion Boundary  Creek was the best mining district he  had visited. Since then he has been  in Eureka and other camps and he has  not yet changed his opinion. Mr. Hall  has spent the greater portion of his  time on the Snowshoe claim in Greenwood camp and it is probable that he  will shortW make such arrang-ements  with the owners as will ensure the  opening out of this promising property  by a Butte syndicate.  A Business Change.  Mr. Thos. Hardy, of Anaconda, has  purchased the hardware business of  Armstrong & Birnie. It is understood  that Mr. Birnie has been engaged by  Mr. Hardy to conduct the business.  Mr. Hardy is a shrewd business man  and his enterprise deserves success.  taf* W$S* ,       *SjV <J$* ���Jg* ��4Jbr <*Q*  W.    O.     ARMSTRONG.  1 W.

Sword,  the  general  ag-ent  for the Ingersoll-Sergeant Drill Company, came over from Rossland on  Saturday last and closed the deal with  Mr. Collins for the purchase of the  powerful machinery which, will'be used  in operating- this wonderful property.  The machinery includes a 50 horse  power boiler, a 30 horse power hoist,  and 140 gallon sinking- ptimp. Mr.  Sword expects to have the plant on the  ground in about 30 days. There was  keen competition among the mining-  machinery men to sell to this company  and Mr. McMillan, of the Macmachine  Compan3r, arrived from Trail only to  find that the purchase had been made  only two hours before reaching here.  The headquarters for the Ingersoll-  Sergeant Company are in Montreal.  It is one of the largest mining machin-  ery establishments in the country and  its manufacturers have earned a wide  reputation.  When the machinery is in place on  the Golden Crown, the work of opening  out the mine will be rushed to the full  capacity of the plant. The tunnel  which is now in about 160 feet will be  extended. This and the Ironsides  machinery make the only two fully  equipped plants which have been purchased in the district. Other mine-  owners however are negotiating for the  purchase of machinery and before  spring several mines will be operated  bv machinery.  The Mother Lode.  Mr. Keffer, manager of the Boundary  Mines Co., has awarded to McMillan &  Co. a contract for sinking 50 feet of a  new shaft on the mother Lode. It is  probable that the contract will be extended so as to include sinking the  winze in the tunnel from the 66 foot to  the 100 foot level and crosscutting.  A Bank Official.  H. B. McKenzie, one of the inspectors of the Bank of British North  America, visited Greenwood this week,  coming- over from Rossland with J. D.  Sword. Mr. McKenzie was impressed  by the substantial business appearance  of Greenwood and if his report will be  taken b}r the conservative officials of  the Bank of B.'N. A., there will be a  branch bank established here before  many months. Mr. McKenzie wrent  out by the wa}r of Penticton, his object  being to look over the mining- district  between here and that point.  *��'*��*'��-*o>'Oi9>-&-4���t��m-4m>'*-o-0'4m>-Q-<**-B-4��>-��M��*~m~<i��>&4B(t*-o-4m>��<m*-��-iQ>v*t>  e  fB<B>*BAB>-B*B*-a<B*-B-<B>-B-4B>-B*BI>'B-*QJ  ��-B-4BP'B'tB!>-B-<B*-B-4��>-B-iB*.B'*B*-B-*B>-B<B*-B-*B*-B-����t*-e-4B>-B~*a>B'*B>-B-4B>~B-4B*-O^B��  Winchester,   Marlin   arid   Savage   Rifles.
