EG�� first meeting- of the City Council was held  in the school-room on Saturday last. Pursuant  ==8to the letters patent, the Mayor took the  chair at noon, and seated around him were  Aldermen Hamill, Rendell, McKenzie, Barrett, Phelan and Galloway. Before beginning the regular work of the council, Aid.  Hamill, J.P., administered the oath of office  to His Worship Mayor Wood and1 also,to the other aldermen.  Mayor Wood then took Aid. Hamill's oath and the entire  council were sworn in.  Mayor Wood expressed his pleasure in welcoming- the  aldermen around the board for the transaction of business ;  he hoped that their meeting would'be harnionious.  Mr. A. S. Black was appointed temporary clerk and then  the council adjourned until 7.30 in the evening-.  At the evening- session all the members were present. Mr.  Black, the clerk, read communications from Rendell & Co.  and C. J. McArthur, offering- to lease rooms for the use of  the council. The question of securing- rooms was then discussed, the Mayor thinking- it would be more economical if  the Clerk had an office and the meetings of the council  could be held in the school-room.  Aid. Galloway asked Aid. Phelan (who is also a school  trustee) to express his opinion on the matter ; he understood  that the trustees were opposed to having- the school-room  used for other than school purposes.  Aid. Phelan replied that the matter had been discussed  by the trustees. Personally he had no objection to holding-  church services in the school-room. If the council would  lay the matter over until the next meeting- he would interview the other trustees and bring-in a report.  The Mayor could see no objection to meeting- in the school  until spring-, when a city hall would probably be built.  Aid. McKenzie then moved that the consideration of the  question be postponed until the next meeting-. Aid. Rendell  seconded the motion and it was carried. Iyater in the evening-, however, the council re-considered the matter and the  finance committee were given power to act.  The Mayor then named the following standing committees : Finance-���Aid. Phelan and McKenzie ; Board of  Works���Aid. Hamill and Galloway ; Heai/Th���Aid. Barrett  and Rendell. The question of appointing a city clerk then  came up for consideration. The Mayor considered that  economy ought to be practised from the first and the offices  combined. Aid. McKenzie said that as there would likely  be no money in the treasury it would make no difference  this 3'ear, but in the future the offices of clerk and treasurer  should be separated. Aid. Hamill suggested that after this  year one person hold the offices of clerk and assessor, and  another treasurer and collector.  At this point Mr. Milligan attempted to address the council but the Mayor refused to give his consent. It would, in  his opinion, lead to endless confusion to allow outsiders to  address the council.  The question of combining the offices was further discussed when, on motion of Aid. McKenzie, the council decided to combine the offices of clerk, assessor, collector and  treasurer for this year. Aid. Hamill moved that the salary  for the office be $150 for the balance of the year. Aid. McKenzie seconded the motion and it was carried.  The council then went into committee of the whole to  discuss the appointment. The committee rose, a ballot was  taken, when it was found that Duncan Ross had a majority  of the votes.    The other applicants were :  E}. Jacobs, W. B.  Paton, and G. IS,. Furness.  Aid. Hamill then introduced a by-law to enable the coun-  cilto make a temporary loan to pay current accounts. Aid.  Hamill fixed the amount at $500, but this may be increased.  The by-law was read a first time and the second reading  was.fixed for the next meeting.  His Worship, the mayor asked the council to consider the  question of water works. He Ijad partially built a dam on  Twin creek, and had a special act put through the legislature giving a franchise for Twin and Boundary, creek and  the power at the Falls. If it is practicable he proposed to turn  all over to the city at cost. If not he could get associates  and they could put in a plant. He had written to secure information regarding the floating of city debentures. All  he wanted now was the cost, but if a company put in the  plant they would ask 30 per cent, in addition to the cost,  should the city desire to buy in the future. In answer to  Alderman Phelan the Mayor stated that the entire cost up  to the present would be about $2,000. He would lay an  itemized bill before the council.  Alderman, Galloway said Mayor Wood's offer was a generous one and ;the council should make an effort to secure  the valuable franchise on the terms offered.  The other aldermen joined in the discussion and the matter  was finally disposed of by a resolution referring the whole  question to the: Finance Committee and Board of Works for  report at the next meeting. ,  The clerk was authorized to procure a seal and necessary  stationery on motion of Alderman Rendell and Alderman  Barrett.-  The council adjourned at 10 o'clock to meet at 7:30 on  Tuesday evening.  TUESDAY'S    MEETING.  All the members of the council were present at the meeting held on Tuesday evening. The temporary loan by-law  went through committee and passed its third reading.  The Finance Committee reported on the matter of securing  suitable quarters for the meetings of the council. Nothing-  definite was decided but an effort will be made to secure the  use of the courthouse and in the meantime the meetings  will be held in Rendell & Co's. hall.  Alderman Phelan on behalf of the Finance Committee  and Board of Works reported that they had made inquiries  regarding the cost of what has already been done towards  securing waterworks and >from the books found that in  wages, securing a charter "and in other ways the cost up to  the present was $1,890.99.  A lengthy discussion then took jDlace regarding the city  taking over the charter of the Greenwood Waterworks Co.  All were convinced that it was desirable that such a valuable franchise should be secured for the city but owing to  the time required to pass a by-law and borrow money it was  considered impossible to do anything this fall and conse-  quentl3r the whole question was postponed.  The health committee wished for information regarding  their duties. Alderman Rendell said it was highly essential that the health of the city should not be endangered by  the non-observance of sanitary regulations. Other members of the council also expressed similar views and Alderman McKenzie moved, and Alderman Galloway seconded,  that the Board of Health be instructed to confer with Dr.  Jakes and provincial officer I^awder with a view to putting  into force effective sanitary regulations.

On motion of Alderman Phelan and  Rendell, Aldermen Hamill, Galloway  and Barrett were appointed a committee to report on the matter of securing  proper street levels.  The question of having- a mineral  exhibit at the Spokane Fruit Fair was  then taken up. Mayor Wood and the  aldermen were sure that a first-class  exhibit at the; Spokane Fair would be  of the g-reatest benefit to Greenwood  and Boundary Creek.

Incenses���was the .subject which  evoked a rather warm two hour discussion at the council meeting- on Wednesday evening-. After Alderman Hamill's  temporary loan by-law was reconsidered and finally adopted and $10 per  month had been placed at the disposal  of the Board of Health, the council  went into committee to determine what  licenses should be collected. Hotel  licenses were fixed as at present $100  for six months. It was decided to  grant no saloon or bottle licenses.  Wholesale liquor dealers will pay $50  for six months, a wholesale merchant  $10 and a retail merchant $5 for six  months. When hawkers and peddlers  were reached the discussion began.  Alderman Phelan wished a heavjr  license imposed on the Big- Benders in  order to protect B. C. farmers and  Greenwood business men. Alderman  Galloway strongly objected to restrict-'  ing- trade in any way. The other aldermen considered that those coming" from  across the line who spent no money in  this country should pa}r a license. The  question was finally-disposed of by fixing- a license of $25 for every six  months for hawkers and peddlers.  The committee rose and reported progress and will consider the question  again on Monday evening- when the  council will hold its regular meeting-.  Rendell & Co's. hall has been secured  for holding- the meeting-s until some  other arrangement is made.  The report that Heinze's surveyors  are in the field is generally accepted as  authentic. A prospector returning  from Christina L/ake reports having  niet eight surveyors on Sheep Creek.  They expect to reach Christina I^ake  in about a week.  -'������ -V- '^S"^'- ���������������V ffjj: V--.-:;V ^.-.V.-:-   <TFa"*k-a ;V ^TVo������:��� V^���������V---- 'V ^T^"  *-:&<���;?#������:< ;*�����������- <T'������������������^"'����} : *"-������   *:'�����������<*'��������� -^Ljrjj-^ ��� ���'*-���-:�����''  * L-��rr��<L-<*:  IF?

Smith of the Republic Mining  Co., is away on a business visit to Spokane.  F. A. Bielenberg left yesterday for  the headwaters of the main Kettle  river to look at some mining property  in that district.  A. Cameron, of the firm of Cameron  and McKenzie, has left the GJ-reenwood  hospital almost fully recovered froni  his severe illness.  Mr. J. McFarlane acting on behalf  of Mr: Hogg this week paid R. Donagin the first payment on account of the  bond on the C. O. D.  Gerald T. Hodgson and F. B. Smith  left on Monday for England. It is reported that Mr. Hodgson does not intend to return alone.  The B. C: mine in Summit camp is  being developed.in a thorough manner.  Development work only increases the  value of the property.  J. W. Nelson of the Pioneer hotel,  Mrs. Rhodes and sister, and Mrs. Corn-  stock left yesterday on a ten days' visit to the Okanagan district.  Mr. Keisir and son of Spokane arrived in Greenwood on Thursday to examine some properties in which they are  interested in Summit camp.  At the last meeting of the directors  of the Iy'e' Roi Mining Company a dividend of $50,000 was declared. This is  the 19th dividend and will make a total  of $57500 in about 20 months.  H. Marymont and partner came  over the Dewdney trail from Rossland  on Thursday to do some work on the  Copper King, adjoining the Mother  Ivode in Dead wood camp. Mr. Marymont visited Boundary Creek a year  ago when he invested, extensively in  mining property and real estate.  J. W. McFarland of the Prospecting  Syndicate returned to Greenwood on  Saturday last. He secured an exten-,  , sion of time f or his company on the  North Star mine in L/ong Iyake camp  and the work of developing this property will be continued. Mr. McFarland  left again for Vancouver on Wednesday.  The Commercial hotel was opened on  Tuesday night and on Wednesday  evening a social dance was given by  the proprietors. About 20 couples were  present and all spent a pleasant evening. The Commercial is a new building, well furnished and as the proprietors are good business men, it should  secure its share of the traffic.  Owing to the wet weather building  operations were somewhat delayed during the week but now the carpenters  are again hard at work. Mr. Gibbs'  assay office and residence for which  Kay & Blough of Anaconda are the  contractors is nearing completion.  Several carpenters are at work on the  Hamill Block, the foundation being  laid and the frame erected.  PROMINENT VISITORS.  After the paragraph headed "A  Political Tour," was in type the gentlemen referred to came in on Friday's  stage from Grand Forks and left by  special conveyance for Fairview the  same afternoon. The party consisted  of G. R. Maxwell, M. P. for Burrard,  Mayor Templeton of Vancouver, D. G.  McDonnell a prominent barrister of  Vancouver and ex-M. P. for North  Lanark, C. N. Davidson president of  the Tinhorn Mining Co., and D. Men-  zies of Vancouver. It was the intention of the party  to  remain for  some  Awarded  Highest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

Mr. Sifton, Minister of the Interior would be in Vancouver on September 12 and Mr. Maxwell will make an  effort to meet him there.  The gentleman of the party laughed  at the idea of theirs being a political  tour. They came but simply for a holiday and to see the country, While in  Rossland those opposed to the present  government convened a meeting and  stirring' addresses were delivered by  Mr. Maxwell, Mr. McDonnell, Mayor  Templeton and several local men.  Mr..Maxwell was asked as to his intentions regarding the provincial campaign and while he would not say definitely that he would be a candidate for  a provincial seat still it is more than  probable that he will be. He will at  least aid the opposition in defeating  the present provincial g-overnment.  Mr. McDonnell will also'in all probability be a candidate.  Mayor Templeton is one of the directors of the Vancouver, Victoria & Fast-  em Railway Co. He stated that if the  provincial government had named his  company as the recipients of the $4000  a mile from Penticton to Boundary  Creek, they would have had no difficulty in financing money to build the  road. As it is a representative of  English Capital it is now on the way to  the province and there is a strong  probability that arrangements can be  made where by the road can be built by  the company. Mr. Maxwell and all  the other members of the party were  delighted with Greenwood and expressed their regrets that they were unable  to remain longer. They will remain a  day at Fairview and then hasten to  Vancouver.  Advance in Silver.  Silver is slow^ going up and will  probably reach 60 cents wijthin the  month. The last quotations are 54%'  cents, 3)4 cents of a rise from the lowest price. Whether the remarkable decrease in the price of silver was due to  the manipulations of the politicians in  the United States or the action of the  the British government with reference  to India, it is difficult to determine  but the reaction has come. Silver  mine owners are consequently happy  and those who have promulgated the  rule that good prices for wheat go with  good prices for silver are beginning to  think that their reasoning is not unsound.  �� ft      S' Li    <���  WILLS' Famous "Navy Cut''  and    "Traveller"    Tobaccos.

He   invested  his  money  fearlessly in  mining- properties and did much toward  developing  the resources  of the province.    But with him came   the American fake newspaper   man whose   only  capital was   his  vulgarity, his want of  principle   and '.his''���"gall.    He   invaded  many of the   mining towns arid undertook to tell the residents of  this   country how its affairs should "be run.    His  '���ignorance of the province and political  conditions is only   exceeded by his im- >  portance, his impecuniosity by his lack  of principle.    Kootenay   has  been   his  field for several years,- but  fortunately  for the whole province   he is now   giving place to  honest  and  reliable journalists;-    Grand  Forks   has   among its  other ills to shoulder the responsibility  of harboring;, newspaper men who have  brought across the line only thatwhich  has .���brought many American journals  into   disrepute.    It  is   true  that those ,  who'.camped in Grand Forks were suited to their environments, and between  them  and  those'. who   endeavored   to  boom  the   townsite   the3r   succeeded in  making for this beautiful villag-e anything-   but   an     enviable     reputation.  Grand  Forks  being   situated   on   the  road leading-   to  the   mining-   district,  they have been in a position to attempt  to prejudice those who were desirous of  coming-  to  Greenwood,   the   center of  the district.    In   some  instances   they  have been known to succeed, and   men  of   capital   anxious   to   secure   investments have gone  away   under  the impression that the entire district was of  the   same   unreliable  character as the  town of Grand Forks.  Under such circumstances it would  be beneath the dig-nit}' of a respectable  journal to make any reference to the  vulgar comments which the Miner has  seen fit to make upon the editor of the  Boundary Creek Times. Whether  the editor of The Times has been connected with the Victoria Colonist or  the Victoria Times cannot affect his  position. Both Victoria papers are  creditable, alike to the city and their  proprietors.  Recently the Grand Forks Miner-  published among other 'matter still  less compatible with honest journalism  the following :  "We have got to that period when  the promoters and business men of, the  town claim they cannot patronize the  Miner, on the ground that they cannot  afford it; we fail to see where the}' have  any reason to expect us to try and induce trade and investors to come to  Grand Forks and let them derive the  benefit, unless they are willing- to give  us a handout occasionally.  We are willing to scratch the back  of those who scratch our back, but  when the scratching comes all on one  side we have a kick coming-. For the  last six months we have been patted on  the back b}r the townsite people, and  others who are posing- as promotors of  the town until there is a running sore.  We have week after week told of -the  wonderful thing's these people were going- to do, until patience ceases to be a  virtue. We would like to have some  one point out one thing- these people  have done, except to try and freeze  somebod}' out."  The opinions of an honest journal  are never influenced by money considerations and no better indication of the  character of the Miner can be found  than the above excerpt.

The majority of the citizens of Greenwood   will   agree   with   the views expressed by the different  aldermen that  it is   highly   desirable   that   the   city  should own and control its own system  of waterworks.    In  the  near  future a  well     equipped    waterworks    system  would bring- in a handsome revenue to  the city.    It is   useless   wasting"  time,  however,   discussing-    that   which   although desirable is also(  impracticable  and in. our opinion the acquiring- of the  franchise of the Greenwood City  Waterworks Co.  by the city at the present  time   is   beyond   its   financial ability.  Under  these circumstances   it were  a  better plan to encourage   the company  to  put   in   its   plant,  and   then in the  future when the city is in a position to  purchase, extreme care should be exercised to see that  the company does not  put an inflated value upon its property.  It is an easy matter to deal with Mayor  Wood as he onhr  wants the actual cost  of the work   already  done  and always  intended that the   franchise   should be  secured  by  the city ; but a   powerful  company such   as   will   likely   acquire  water  rights   at   Boundary Falls will  require    watching-.    If    we   had     the  money the property should be acquired  now but the money is not available i it  takes time to pass by-laws and borrow  on the   credit   of   the city and   consequently   for a   3rear at   least the work  should be left in the hands of  a   company.    Then the city may buy by giving-a 30 per cent, bonus.  A Political Tour.  The following- paragraph from the  Vancouver World will prove interesting- reading- :  "Geo.   R.  Maxwell,  M. P.,     Mayor  Templeton,   D.   G.   Macdonell, C.    N.  Davidson   and   D.   Menzies  left by to-  da3r's express on a trip to the   interior.  Notwithstanding-   what  has been   said  to the contrary, it is   their intention to  hold   political    meeting's     at     several  points during-   their   pilgTimage.     The  first of the series, it   is   said,   will take  place at   Revelstoke to-morrow.    Then  the   Slocan,   Kootena3r Lake and Trail  Creek districts, including- Rossland, of  course,   will,   be   visited.    From Rossland it is   their   intention   to   proceed  westward throug-h Boundary Creek and  Southern   Yale to Okanag-an and   Vernon ;   Kamloops   and   Ashcroft in   all  probability   will   be  calling  places on  the   way   home.    To   accomplish   the  work laid out for them will consume at  least three weeks' time. In addition  to the political nature of their mission  it is understood they will have an eye  to business generally. The selection  of a Moses for the Opposition is to be a  matter for future consideration."  LOCAL  NOTES.  Mr. G. A. .OR. I^ambly, the gold commissioner, paid Greenwood a visit this  week.  Paul Meyers is working in some rich  looking ore on the Tarn O'Shanter  claim in Deadwood camp.  Contractor Glaze is making good  progress with the wagon road between  Midway and Curlew Creek.  Monday, Labor Day, was not generally observed as a public holiday. The  school was closed but all the business  houses were open as usual.  Mr. Robert Hedley who visited  Greenwood a short time ago has been  appointed superintendent of the Hall  Mines smelter at Nelson.  Mr. Cyril J. Kales has leased his interest in the Windsor hotel to Mr. Walter J. Francis who has been one of the  proprietors in the Windsor for some  time. Mr. Bales and family left for  New Westminster on Thursday but. he  intends returning to Greenwood in  about three months. >  Mr. Alfred Woodhouse arrived in  Greenwood on Saturday. He went  down as far as Osoyoos to look at some  mining properties, returning to Rossland on WednesdayT" Mr. Woodhouse  leaves in a few days for Kngland. He  brought with him from Rossland Mr.  J. C. Hale who will have charge of the  Anaconda group which begins work in  a few days.  H.   HALLETT,  QBaxtistzv, J$o?icxtoxt  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  GREENWOOD,   B.O.  W.

No\y, that the council have decided to  send a mineral exhibit from Boundary  Creek to Spokane, every one should  make an effort to make the collection  worthy of the district. If every mine  owner in the district, will see that the  best specimens from each camp are  brought to Greenwood, a wonderful  collection of ores can be sent to Spokane. Mr. J. F. Hemenway of the  Ironsides claim in .Greenwood camp  has signified his intention of getting  ores for the exhibit and taking them to  Marcus free of charge if necessary.  Mr. Collins of the Brandon & Golden  Crown will also do his share. JLet all  the others join in and there will be in  Spokane a mineral exhibit from Boundary Creek that will astonish the hundreds of mining men who will be at the  Fair.  A Daily Mail.  A strong effort will be made to induce the Dominion government to provide the necessary money to secure a  daily mail both ways between Greenwood and Grand Forks. At present  there is a daily mail from Marcus to  Grand Forks and only three times a  week between Grand Forks and Greenwood. As a result the Greenwood  mail remains at Grand Forks every  alternate day although a stage runs  daily between the two points.  Sam Martin who runs the stage line  interviewed the business men regarding the matter this week and over  thirty agreed to pay the sum necessary  to secure a daily mail if the government cannot be induced to do so. Satisfied with this agreement Mr. Martin  will bring the mail daily from Grand  Forks.  Mr. Green, a Montreal millionaire,  visited Boundary Creek this week and  was delighted with the universal possibilities of the district. Mr. Green is a  member of the Adams Co., and is therefore interested in the Midway Town-  site. He stated that the reports which  reached them in Montreal gave only a  vague idea of the district. Fastern  money would seek investment here if  the extent of the mineral resources of  Boundary Creek were known. Mr.  Green left Mrs. Green in Spokane and  they intend visiting California before  returning east.

While the owners of the  many claims which have been recorded  in the office at Midway are each confident that he has a property that will  become a producer and that "he has  struck it rich," still railroad companies  and capitalists are usually not so optimistic regarding- the future. They are  ." doubting Thomases " until they can  see the ore ready for shipment. Notwithstanding- the larg"e amount of work  done there are as yet but few properties iri the district in a position to keep  up continuous shipment of ore, but if a  fully equipped plant, plenty of capital,  a determination on the part of the owners and enormous bodies of rich ore  can make a shipper then the Old Ironsides in G-reenwood will astonish the  mining- world within six months.  Fortunately for the entire district  the Old Ironsides and the Knob Hill  adjoining- are now controlled by big-  companies which have the xatpital necessary to purchase the powerful  machinery required and to put the t  mines on a shipping- basis. Mr. J. P. ,  Graves, the well known Spokane mining- man, went east last spring and  succeeded in securing-the organization  of two strong- companies to takeover  and develop both properties. The Old  Ironsides Company includes such well  known capitalists as Rufus Pope, M.  P., Wm. Far well, an eastern banker,  and C. E}. G-ault, a prominent woollen  manufacturer, also S. ID. Rigg-, of the  Spokane Drug- Co. The eastern capitalists have purchased all the treasury  stock, giving- the company ample funds  to put the property on a shipping-  basis.  With  the   money   behind   him   Mr.  Graves   lost no time in g-oing to  work.  He secured the  services  of J. F. Hem-  enway,    an   experienced mining- man,  and under the latter's supervision several men. were   put   to   work   on   both  properties.    Then   Mr.   McISntyre was  g-iven   a  contract  for  sinking-  on the  Old Ironsides   shaft   and he succeeded  in piercing the obdurate rock and  getting-   into  softer   and  richer material.  As previously stated in The Times the  company also purchased a   plant  from  the Jenckes Machine Co., of Sherbrook,  for which F.   R. Mendenhall of Rossland is the ag-ent.    The plant  includes  a  60-horse power  boiler, 6^x8 double  cylinder hoist, No. 5  Cameron sinking  pump  and  No.  2  *drill  with   stoping-  bar.    The machinery was hauled from  Bossburg-  and  over   the  half-mile   of  road   which  was   built   from the main  road to the Ironsides.    It arrived at the  mine in   good   condition,   and  several  men are now eng-ag-ecl   in the  work   of  placing- it in position. .   Mr. Hemenway  has been delayed by lack of bricks   for  the foundation but by October 1 he expects    to    have   evei^ything-   running-.  The shaft will be sunk to the  100  foot  level when the   work   of   cross-cutting-  and drifting- will be carried on.    Then  the shaft will be sunk another 100 feet  and at this depth   drifting-   and  cross-  cutting-will  be   continued.    The Ironsides vein is   simply   enormous, its entire wjtt'th not having-   yet   been   ascertained.    The   ore,   copper   pyrites   in  quartz   g-ang-ue,   assays   well and will  yield handsome profits.  The Knob Hill Compan}'- of which  Mr. Graves is also manager is composed of well known   eastern   capitalists,  including- the president, J. F. Buck of  the Royal Paper Mills, Quebec ; R. H.  Pope, M.P., R. B. Greenshields and  C. J. Chisholm, Montreal; S. French,  Sherbrook, and H. C. Baile}', Cook-  shire. There are several men doing-  surface work on the Knob Hill. The  ledg-e here has been uncovered to  over 100 feet in width and the ore is  of the same character .as that in the  Ironsides. * The Ironsides machinery is  of sufficient capacity to also do the  necessary work on the Knob Hill. In  all probability the Ironsides Company  will put in a compressor of four to six.  drills.   -':'.  When the Ironsides Company g-et  their machinery in position they will  have the most powerful and only complete mining- plant in the district and  there is no g-ood reason why their output should not be equal to the capacity  of the plant.  vMINFRAIv    ACT,    1896.

Alex Begg, the editor of the British  Columbia Mining Record, died in Victoria on Monday last. Mr. Begg was  well known throughout the province.  For several years he was Queen's-  Printer in Manitoba and wrote a history of Manitoba and the Northwest. He established the Seattle Times  and the British Columbia Mining Rec-  cord which he edited tip, to about a  month ago when he was forced to retire  on account of illness. Mr. Begg was a  native of the province of Quebec and  was 65 years of age.  A Unique Connection.  Hon. J. H. Turner, premier, and  Hon. C. K. Pooley, president of the  council, have taken advantag-e of their  public positions to secure some profit  from the Klondyke excitement. A  company was recently formed in London for exploring the Yukon territory  and in its prospectus it states that the  Board "is composed of practical men  experienced in the control, and financing of gold properties. Special attention is directed to the names arid position of the Board in British Columbia.  The Hon. J. H. Turner is Premier of  British Columbia; the Hon. C. K.  Pooley, O. C, is Presidentof the Executive Council ; and Mr. Boscowitz is a  gentleman of great business experience and standing in the Colony. The  importance to the company of this  unique connection cannot be over estimated, as it will obviously have command of the leading mining- experts in  the Colony."  Without discussing the probability  of the minister of the Crown becoming-  identified with companies such as the  one referred to, the people of the interior cannot but Jook with alarm upon  this connection. At the next session  of parliament several schemes will be  advanced to secure aid to build rail-  wa)-s into the Yukon and judging- from  past experiences the ministers will look  to their own interests rather than those  of the province. No surprise need be  felt if plans to open up Boundary  Creek and other interior points will be  sidetracked for those appertaining to  the Yukon district.  THE VOTERS'  LIST.  In drawing" attention to Mr. Higgins'  letter which appeared in The Times  last week we had no desire to offer any  reflection upon Mr. Norris, the government agent and collector of votes. He  carried out his instructions with reference to the closing of the voters' lists  and used every effort to secure as many  names as possible on the list. But  many of those who   are   not  yet regis  tered having read the notice, considered they were barred from registering  this year. Our only object was to remove this impression and as a result  several names have during the week  been forwarded to the collector.  We have always found Mr. Norris a  courteous and painstaking official and  we have no desire to drag civil servants who mind their own business into  political discussions. The fact still  remains, however, that many people  understood from Mr. Norris' notice  that the work of registration could not  proceed after August 4. What Mr. .  Norris did intimate was that the list  would be closed for another year  after August 4. Voters can and should  be registered at any time.  Government Engineer.  Mr. J. R. Roy, the Dominion Government Engineer for the province, is at  present at Penticton inquiring into the  best means of making Okanagan river  riavig-able between Penticton and  Okanagan Falls. A sum of money for  this work was voted by the Dominion  government and as a steamer is being  built at this point, it should be carried  out without delay.  ., *"c*"r,t-*T',��Ti  xirmu-vnT*,*?������*,-  Corporation of the City of Greenwood.

Notice of incorporation of the Boundary   Creek   Printing-   &     Publishing-  Company will appear in the next issue  of the British, Columbia G-azette.    The  company  has   been   organized for the  the purpose of acquiring and   carrying  on   the   business   of   the    Boundary  Crbek    Times,       " T he   Times "  was started about a year ago and since  then  its proprietors have no complaint  to offer regarding the patronage of the  public, but in order to increase the business   and   to make  The Times better  than ever it was   considered   advisable  ��o  secure more   capital.     In  organizing of  the  company the  present proprietors of The Times niet  with every  encouragement.    The business men of  Greenwood and Anaconda at once subscribed  for   the  shares issued beyond  those  taken  by  Messrs.   Harber  and  Ross.    The  company  is of limited liability, the   capital  stock   being- $5,000  divided   into  500  shares of  $10  each.  The shares were issued at par.  In the 'memorandum of association the  objects of the company are set forth as  including the purchase of The Boundary Creek Times, to carry on the  business of printers, publishers, lithographers and stationers and any kindred trade that , may be carried on in  connection therewith ; to acquire, purchase, register or obtain any interest  in the copyright of any book, paper,  pamphlet, map or design, and to grant  leases or licenses thereof or to sell or  deal with same.  The controlling interest in the new  company will be retained by the present publishers of The Times.  The resident correspondent of the  Vancouver News-Advertiser makes the  following kind reference to the organization of the new company :  "The ' Times ' has been in existence  just about one year, the first issue  having been published on September  12th, 1896. It was started under -considerable disadvantages, and although  having at times many difficuties to  contend ag-ainst, caused chiefly by unreliability and irregularity of transportation matters, it has faithfully fulfilled its engagements right along-, at  times at no small monetary sacrifice.  Both in regard to tone and general get-  up, it is a newspaper a new and comparatively remote town like Greenwood  has no reason to be ashamed . of, and  now that the introduction of more capital has been arranged for, it will doubtless more than hold its own, to the  benefit of the district at large, as well  as to the pecuniary advantag-e of those  directly interested in its affairs. The  Ci Times " enters upon its second year  under favorable auspices and it has the  g-ood wishes of the community for its  prosperity and extended usefulness.''  Street  Levels.  It is understood that the Board of  Works who have been g-iven power to  act by the Council, will secure the services of Mr. C. J$. Shaw, C. $., to run  the proper street levels in Greenwood.  There is a pressing necessity for this  work as there are several desirous of  erecting buildings and they are compelled to wait until they can secure the  proper level. At first buildings were  erected in G-reenwood without regard  to street levels and when the streets  are properly graded some will find that  ihe foundations of their buildings are  several feet too high while others are  too low.  ���4?*  Ai\ax^x��w\-/t?  ^  Hardware* ^���  *�� Stoves,  XML  hi  M��  AT ACTUAL COST!

He describes  the many   improvements  which have been made at the mine and  says further that the ore which assayed  $97 g-old and  3  per cent, copper on the  surface  continues  to  hold its value as  depth is attained.

Greenwood has been "fortunate in escaping-from the ravag-es of any serious  epidemic.    Other cities similarily situated have   had to   cope   with   typhoid  fever,   diphtheria  and   infections that  are   the   accompaniments    of   impure  water   and   bad sanitary   reg-ulations.  Greenwood's     g-ood   fortune    in    this  respect cannot be said to be due   to the  care which has been exercised in keep-  the city in    a sanitary condition.    It is  rather because it is   healthily   situated  and has heretofore   not  been  of sufficient size to make dang-erbus those contaminations  which   are  usually found  in   populated   cities   with indifferently  observed.sanitary regulations.  Greenwood is now   assuming- proportions which demand that sanitary reg--  iilations  be  strictly observed.    Those  whose duty it is to see that   the city   is  kept clean should  not be   backward in  prosecuting-  those  who  by their  carelessness endang-er their own health and  the health  of others.    But  little  sympatic  will be wasted on those  who endanger the   lives   of   citizens   by their  ig-norance or negiect of  sanitary   matters.  GREENWOOD, GRAND ..FORKS. & MIDWAY.
