Vol, III,  GREENWOOD CITY, B.G, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1897,  37  No. 5/  THE CITY COUNCIL.  H& regular meeting of the city council was held  on Monday  evening last.    His Worship  Mayor  ^Wood presided and there was a full   attend  ance of aldermen excepting- Alderman Galloway who is absent at the Spokane Fruit  Fair.    ������  Messrs. Iyieble & Forschner, proprietors of  the Greenwood brewery, asked that they be  allowed to sell beer by retail for four weeks when they will  be in a position to bottle beer and sell by wholesale. The  council not having any power to grant such a request, the  communication was received and filed.  Wm. Smith of the Post-master-general's department at  Ottawa informed the council that the question of giving a  daily mail between Grand Forks and Greenwood would be  considered by the department.  Messrs. G. R. Naden, president, and D. C. McRae, secretary, of the Volunteer Fire Department were present and  discussed fire-protection with the council. Mr. Naden explained that of the six officers of the department, the president, vice-president and secretary were supposed to look  after the financial part. They had a balance on hand of  about $23, and in his opinion now that the city was incorporated the aldermen should look-after the finances. Fire  protection was something in which all were interested but  heretofore it was the willing ones that paid more than their  fire share by subscription. The same result would follow if  another effort was made to secure subscriptions to maintain  the department. The aldermen were empowered to tax  however, and then the cost of maintenance would be equitably borne by all.  In answer to a question from Aid. Hamill, Mr. Naden  said that he did not know of anything absolutely needed by  the fire department. Of course, a great many things were  needed before it could be in a position to efficiently cope  with fires. He thought that the streams should be provided  with boxes so that water could be dipped from them readily.  Mr. McRae stated that at the last meeting the fire department had decided to put in a dam on Twin creek near the  Hamill building-, so as to secure a good supply of water for  fire purposes. The matter was finally disposed of by Aid.  Barrett moving and Aid. Hamill seconding a motion that  Messrs. Naden, McRae and Russell be appointed firewardens and that they be empowered to define the fire limits.  The finance committee recommended that the following  bills be paid : Men on streets and teams, $87.00; Thos.  Gully for office furniture, $45.00 ; Smith & McRae, stationery, $30.55; B. C. Times, printing and advertising, $28.-  75. Aid. Hamill moved and Aid. Rendell seconded that the  report be adopted and the amounts paid.-  Mr. Naden the manager of the Bealey Iyoan and Investment Co., protested against paying $15 license for six  months while other business men were only taxed $10 or $5.  They did not object to paying taxes but did object to discrimination. After a short discussion the further consideration was deferred until the next meeting of the council.  The city clerk was granted leave of absence for two weeks  and Aid. Hamill who is leaving on a business trip to Armstrong was also granted leave of absence.  On motion of Aid. Phelan seconded by Alderman McKenzie, the council decided to hold the  regular  meetings every  alternate Monday' night.  Aid. McKenzie moved and Aid. Barrett seconded that the  city clerk be instructed to write to the   government  urging  that license commissioners be appointed at once,  lution carried.    The council then adjourned  The reso-  THEY   MEAN   BUSINESS.  It is evident that the development of several prominent  Boundary Creek mining- properties is to be actively continued until it be shown, either that they give reasonable  promise of becoming permanent mines, or that the indications do not warrant a further expenditure of money upon  them. This is notably the case with the Mother Lode, Old  Ironsides, Golden Crown, and B.C. claims, each representing77aHctiifererit mining camp. There are others, but these  are the more important of the properties upon which work  is now proceeding.  The Mother Lode may fairly be said to have been the  stand-by of Deadwood camp during the past twelvemonths.  Having- proved, by means of a 245-ft; crosscut tunnel, the  lode to be 185 feet in width, and that the great bulk of the  ore thus exposed will not bear long-distance transportation  charges, the Boundary Mines Company of New York might  reasonably have refrained from any further outlay until  local smelting facilities were being provided ; but being  energetic and enterprising- rather than simply speculative  mining men, the members of this close corporation have  adopted a forward policy. They are sinking another prospect shaft, this time at the upper end of the big outcrop of  ore, and, too, are sinking- a winze from the floor of the tunnel, with the intention of crosscutting- the lode at a depth of  100 feet below the present level. With this "big body of ore  in sight and this furtjjer development work in hand, it is  not surprising- that President Corbin was, after spending-  some time last week in examining the mine, more favorably  impressed with the value of the district as a prospective  field for g-ood railway business than he had previously been,  notwithstanding all the glittering generalities enthusiasts  had treated him to.  A description of the complete pumping and hoisting plant  lately installed at the Old Ironsides mine was recently published in this journal, so it is unnecessary to do more now  than direct attention to the fact that the machinery is now  running smoothly, and briefly refer to the mine workings.  The double compartment shaft is now down nearly 90 feet  and is still in ore of a shipping grade. The tunnel is in  over 50 feet and here, too, there is plenty of ore in sight.  There is good reason to assume that this property and the  Knob Hill which adjoins it, will give a good account of  themselves as the outcome of the vigorous course of work  now fairly entered upon.  Pending the arrival of the mining plant ordered from  Montreal last month for the Golden Crown, underground  operations at this mine are being confined to driving the  crosscut tunnel, now in about 175 feet. The-main shaft is  too wet for sinking until the steam pump is available for  dealing with the water. A large machinery house and a  shaft house are being erected prepai-ator3r to the installation of the plant, and thereafter sinking will be pushed,  working two shifts.  At the B. C. all is stir. The boarding and bunk houses  are about completed and other   mine   buildings   are   being  erected. The shaft is now down about 55 feet in solid ore,  the good quality of which is generally well maintained.  Men have commenced to make a wagon road out from the  mine, while a gang- has been started to work from Fholt  Meadow towards Summit camp, so as to provide road connection between the B. C. mine and Greenwood City before  the snow flies.  It is therefore manifest that, as regards those direct ing-  the affairs of these several valuable mining-properties, they  mean business. May they meet with abundant success and  may their active enthusiasm speedily communicate itself to  other owners and managements so as to soon secure for  Boundary Creek a regular   pay roll of no mean proportions. Shot the Panther.  Mr. Castleman recently g-ave   an unwelcome visitor   to   his  rr *?.ch a rather  warm reception.    About dusk one evening-   Miss   Castleman   was   leading-   a  working-   horse  in  from the rang-e  not  far from the house, when her attention  was attracted by the   uneasiness of the  horse, which repeatedly turned its head  and looked  up   the   hillside.    Iyooknig  in the   same direction  the young-   lady  saw a panther moving- stealthily along,  apparently watching- herself and horse.  She lost   no   time   in   getting-   home.  I^ater Mr.   Castleman   warned   by   his  dog: that an intruder  was  about,   took  his rifle   and  la}>-   in the bush to await  an opportunity for a   shot.    At  length  he  saw   both   panther   and dog- taking;  turn about chasing- each other.    It was  difficult in the dark to tell one from the  other, but when a chance  presented itself he put a bullet   into   the  panther,  which g-ot away, and either died on the  .���mountain,'or, was'  too  much   scared   to  show up ag-ain. *  Examining Mining Properties.  Kenneth A. Roberts, of Rossland,  and his brother, R. Roberts, the'.latter  having- recently eirrived from South  Africa, are now visiting- the mining-  camps of Boundary Creek, with, it is  understood, a view to possible investment, should they be offered any mineral claims likely to meet their requirements as regards both quality and  price. After examining some of the  more promising- properties in this  neighborhood they will probably visit  Camp McKinney and Fairview.  Is  Having Attention.  After the paragraph headed " Requires Attention," was printed, R.  Hicking-bottom, Dominion Veterinary,  Surgeon located in West Kootenay, arrived in Greenwood. He came in on  Thursday afternoon, having" traveled  from Rossland to Marcus and Grand  Forks, whence he drove to Greenwood.  At Grand Prairie he found much to  have his professional attention. He  will remain here a' few da}^ for the  purpose of ascertaining- the g-eneral  condition of the live stock in the district, and of examining" all horses and  cattle he sees. Should there be, in his  judgment, aii3r necessity'-.for communicating with the Dominion authorities  relative to the condition of the stock,  he will do so, and will afterwards take  such remedial measures as occasion  shall require.  The "Doc," as he is familiarly  known on the coast, for several ye?^vs  zealousl3r filled the position of Provincial Veterinary- Surg-eon, the whole of  the lower mainland, with its numerous  daiiw cattle and trotting stock, having-  been under his periodical inspection.  It is reported that a hoisting- and  pumping- plant of adequate capacity  for extensive development work, consigned to the Winnipeg- mine, has  reached Marcus and will shortly be delivered at the mine, in Wellington  camp. If this be true, the early starting- up of work at this mine may be  looked for.  ^CtLV:^:::-.<rt^: V;. .C^\,-V-.,t.'.'V F$, y ,A^Vr V ^T^.V^-TPV^ K  $  IF     YOU      NEED  :        Hardware,     Stoves,      Granite  and Tinware  CARPENTERS'   and   MINERS'   TOOLS  O re   Cars   a n d   R a it> s  POWDER   AND   STEEL  Paints  and Oil,      Sashes and Doors  Water Pipes and Fixtures, &c.

Sheriff Pemberton came in from  Penticton on yesterday's stage, and  later went on to Grand Forks, on official business.  The Oddfellows of Greenwood contemplate shortly arranging some entertainment, to give pleasure to-, their  friends as well as themselves.  Since J. Hedges completed his charcoal-burning contract at the B. C.  claim, Summit camp, he has put up a  large pit a short distance from the  Brooklyn House, Greenwood camp.  Rorie Mcl^eod has nearly completed  the erection of a substantial and roomy  dwelling house at Anaconda, and H. J.  Horn arm is building a small lumber  house in that town.,  The Contact, Ossian Wave, Tidal  Wave and Vernon mineral claims, in  Greenwood camp, have been transferred to the Tidal Wave Consolidated  Mining Companj' of Vancouver.  Crown grant applications appear in  this issue for the Spotted Horse and  Gold Bug-, in Deadwood camp ; Minnie  Moor and: Mattie Davis, in Summit  camp ; and Boundary Falls, in Smith's  camp. - ,',;':.  J. W. Nelson and C. W. Tyrian have  bought the Maud K. mineral claim, in  Iyong' I^ake camp from M. T. Robison.  Two assessments have been done on  this claim, upon which there is a good  copper ledge.  A 12-fpot quartz ledge , was recently  discovered by the men prospecting the  Cuba: claim, Central camp, for the owners, K. A. Bielenberg and G.R. Naden.  Two other ledges have also been found  lately on this claim.  Contractor Campbell is having the  aground levelled and foundations prepared for a two-story frame building,  intended for a store and dwelling house  which he proposes erecting on Copper  street, opposite the Hamill building. ',.  G. T. Wells, of near Midway, an accident to, whom was reported last week,  was not nearly so severely injured as  was at first stated. After two or three  days careful nursing he was able to  leave the hospital and return to his  ranch.  Geo. Barrett, D. Bryant and J. Gil-  Ian, have completed assessment work  on their Fourth of July and Prince of  Wales claims, and are now representing the Drum lyomond, also owned by  them. All three claims are at the head  of Nicholson creek, in the locality now  known as West Copper camp.  It is said that several Midway lovers  of lawn-tennis are preparing- a court  in that town, so as to practise in readiness to meet the Greenwood players.  The local club now numbers about a  dozen ���members', who have their court  in g-ood shape and who frequently play  on it.  The survey of the Gold Bug and Hidden Treasure mineral claims, in Dead-  wood camp is to be made without delay.  When this is completed the claims,  which were purchased some time ago  by A. Drucker, M. P., for Northampton, Kng., from Thos. Walsh, will be  prospected. Mr. Drucker's agent in  this district is Aid. L,. S. Moulton Barrett, of Greenwood.  Kd. Farrer, the well-known journalist, representing an Knglish newspaper, and Geo. H. Ham, advertising  agent for the C. P. R., were at Penticton last Wednesday. They made  many enquiries from Mr. Ross, editor  of The Times, who met them there,  respecting the Boundary Creek country, which they regretted other engage-  Awarded  Highest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

S., who a fortnight  since went to Trail, to survey four  mineral claims, to the effect that as he  has several additional claims to survey  he.will not be able to return to Anaconda until about the 18th inst.  The Messrs. Roberts, who on Thurs-  da}*" last visited the Mother L,ode mine,  in company with Mr. Naden, were  greatly surprised and pleased with the  very large body of ore they saw in the  mine workings. ; They went to the bottom of the winze, as well as to the end  of the 245-fobt tunnel.  S. M. Johnson and G. R. Naden have  purchased from Geo. A. Guess the  Magnetite mineral claim, which is the  second southerly extension of the  Bruce, the show claim of Graham's  camp. There is a big body of magnetic iron on the Magnetite,which, however, has not yet been opened up.  Respecting this district's ore exhibited at the Spokane Fruit Fair, the  Spokesman-Review says: Boundary  Creek makes a great showing of ores  carefully arrang-ed and accurately  labeled. Visitors are presented with a  printed description of the district and  the ores exhibited. The exhibit is  most comprehensive, including every  'mine of importance in, the district.  The Liberals' Railroad Policy.  Hewitt Bostock, M.P., at a public  meeting at Fort Steele on the 21st ult.,  says :  These achievements [the Crow's Nest  road and control of coal lands] were  but the entering of the thin end of the  wedge by the government to obtain  control of railways everywhere and  their operation in the interests of the  people. In the past the practice had  been to give the country's resources  away to individuals. That practice  was to be changed ; the government  hereafter would keep them and administer them in the general interests.u  APPLICATION FOR LIQUOR LICENSE.

Boundary Creek must possess strong  attractions judging from the comparative frequency of the visits of mining  experts and representatives of capital.  A noteworthy instance is that of Hans  Giese, formerly German Consul at  Tacoma, Wash., and H. Ve'uhoff", mining expert of Berlin. Since Mr. Veu-  hoff arrived from Europe, about four  months ago, he and Mr. Giese have together paid three visits to Boundary  Creek, and when they went out last  week they expressed their intention, of  returning again shortly.  As they are bent on business, as  evidenced by their close examination ,.  of numerous claims in the district,  their careful sampling of some of them  and their persistency in acquiring full  information regarding all the Boundary Creek ���mining properties that are  opening up satisfactorily, their repeated visits suggest that they find this a  decidedly promising field for the investment of capital.  They are understood to have a strong  financial backing. If this be the case  it is to be hoped that they will soon  find some claim or claims that will  come up to their requirements, and  that they will'meet with much success  in their consequent development work.  Water and Light.  Spokesman-Review : B3'' a vote of 5  to 2, Grand Forks' city council have  decided to award the contract for constructing the new waterworks to Contractor Davies for $13,974, this sum to  include the cost of a waterworks system and an electric light plant complete and in running order. By Mr.  Davies' plans, the water will be pumped into a 30,000-gallpn reservoir, which  will be situated a quarter of a'mile up  the north fork. The engine will be a  65-horse-power machine and will pump  the water into the city through four-  inch mains, extending through the  principal streets and supplied with a  suitable number of hydrants. The  height of the reservoir will be sufficient  to throw the water 100 feet.  The electric light plant will have a  120-horse-power eng-ine, which will be  situated close to the, waterworks  engine. This plant is to have 1000 incandescent lights and five arc lig'hts,  so arranged as to light the entire  city.  There is considerable dissatisfaction  among the rate-payers over the manner in which the contract was let, as  no plans and specifications were furnished for contractors to bid on,  as is usually done, but Mr. Davies  furnished his own plans and specifications.  It is stated that the Smuggler and  Joe Dandy claims, Fairview, will each  have a 20-stamp mill shorty. The  Smuggler is owned by a Toronto company, while the Joe Dandy is one of a  group of four Fairview claims to acquire which the Fairview Mining Company is being organized in England.  Capt. R. C. Adams, who is again  spending a week or two at Midway,  came up to Greenwood last Tuesday.  He was accompanied by Angus Stuart,  agent for the Midway Company.  tmmmMi^Mm^sews^smssmmii^m  WE . . ./}j  HAVE .  ONLY .

They rode over the Dewdney trail on their way in. Mr. Grog-art  is a member of the Rossland-Green-  wood Syndicate which purchased from  Messrs. Wood & Galloway a number of  townsite lots on the Dillier addition.  G. A. Pounder, of Rossland, who  recently sold his interest in four Trail ���  Creek mineral claims, was in Greenwood early in the week. It was his intention to return in about ten days', to  have a good look over the Boundary  Creek mining camps. Meanwhile he  is visiting- Camp McKinney and may  also have a look at some mining prop  erties in  I^ake.  Ivovers of dogs of the larger breeds  will find something to interest them if  they ask C. W. Tynan, of the Pioneer  hotel, Greenwood, to show them, his St.  Bernard pet " Queen "and her litter of  half-a-dozen two-weeks-old puppies.  There are two dogs and four sluts in  this valuable young- canine family, the  father of which is Dan McClung-'s  blooded St. Bernard dog-, bred by  Harry Baird of Spokane.  The St. Maurice Mining- Society, of  which Chas. Gire is manager, has in  its employ an ingenious Frenchman  named Claude Gidon, who makes wooden shoes for his own wear at mining-  work on the Society's claims in Central  camp. Mr. Gidon takes pardonable  pride in his handiwork, which certainly  does him credit. Each shoe is carved  out of a solid piece of wood. Though  like diminutive boots , in appearance,  the shoes are very servicable.  H.   HALLETT,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  GREENWOOD,    B.C.  ^ORBES   M.   KERBY,  Assoc. Mem. Can. Soc.

Captain CI ive Phillips Wolley, the  provincial sanitary officer, visited  Greenwood on Saturday last and left  again on Monday for Midway, Fair-  view, and other points in E}ast Yale.  Capt. Wolley is a distinguished sanitary officer. He has attained considerable prominence as a citizenof the republic of letters ; he is an athlete and  sportsman: of wide repute; and he canf  discuss sanitary matters from the  highest possible plane consistent with'  the regulations of the provincial board  of health.  On Saturday night the Mayor  summoned a special meeting of the council  for the purpose of discussing  sanitary  matters with Captain Wolley.    All the  members of the board  excepting  Aid.  Galloway were present.    Capt. Wolley  advised the local board of health to insist on everyone  using  the  dry  earth  system;   it   was  the  most  absolutely  safe system yet known.    They  should  also insist on   having  boxes  lined,   or  the use of galvanized iron ones. It was  essential  for  the  good  health  of  the  city   that   the  provincial   regulations  should  be   carried  out   as  laid  down.  Unless this was done the system could  become a greater nuisance than the old  system.    In   Grand   Forks  the  Mayor  set the example by  digging   a  cesspit  adjacent to the   river  from  which the  citizens get their water supply, and in  order that everything might  be  absolutely healthy and safe he dtig   a   well  within a few feet   of  the  cesspit.    He  advised the discontinuance of   the use  of  wells.      Captain   Wolley  discussed  sanitary arrangements   from   a   financial standpoint.    He pointed   out   that  the   best   advertisement   a   city   could  have was a clean   bill  of  health.    I^et  the investing public become impressed  with the idea that a city   is   clean   and  healthy    and   they    would   invest   far  more readily.    In   this   connection   he  ��� desired to congratulate the  mayor and  aldermen on the sanitary  condition of  -Greenwood.   In no town that he visited  did he find such a universal attempt  made to observe the sanitary regulations ; the hotel back-yards, usually  hotbeds for disease, were kept comparatively clean, and private residences  were all that could be' desired. The  niayor and aldermen then discussed  the regulations with the sanitary officer, who was accorded a vote of thanks.  Before adjourning the council, having learned that the superintendent of  provincial police intended removing  Officer L/awder now that Greenwood  was incorporated, instructed the clerk  to write to the attorney-general, with  a view to securing an arrangement  whereby Officer Lawder could continue  to perform police duty in the city as  well as in the surrounding district.

East summer the Mother Eode was the  scene of the operations of the petty  thief, but the Sunset adjoining- has  recently Been visited by him. Manager Macfarlane reports that oh Satur-  dciy evening- while the employes of the  mine were in the city a saw borrowed  from Martin Walsh was taken, and at.  the same time, at least a third of a box  of powder disappeared. Mining- camps  are generally free from annoyances of  this kind ; if the culprit is caught the  mine owner intends seeing- that he  shall receive a severe punishment.  T Greenwood Fire Department.  Thefollowing- information relative  to the Greenwood Fire Department has  been kindly supplied by the secretary-  treasurer, D. C. McRae :���Receipts to  date : Subscriptions, from residents,  $95.

Balance in bank $23.45.  The department now owns the following-appliances : 2 firemen's axes ;  1 single axe, 1 roof ladder, 1 extension  ladder, 1 piill hook, 1 75-foot rope, 24  buckets, 1 alarm1 bell, 1 alarm triangle.  It is the intention of the department;  to put in a sluice g-ate at the Forks of  Twin creek, to admit of all the water  being- turned into one channel should  necessity arise for this being- done. A  dam will be made near" Ham ill's block,  on Copper street, sq as to form a small  reservoir for a water supply should it  be needed for fire purposes in that part  of the town.  It is assuring-to find the department  providing- ag-ainst any contingencies  that may arise, althoug-h it is to be  hoped that nothing- will happen to occasion the use of these facilities.'  COUNTY   COURT,   MIDWAY.  His Honor Judg-e Spinks held count)'  court last Saturday.    The  docket  was  a lig-h.t one, with no case of   particular  importance on the list.    One matter relating- to a mining- share transaction is  of   some   local   interest,   though.      In  this, J. M. Eloyd of Spokane sued Ewen  Keig-htle3r and J. W. Eind for the  sum  of $250 on a note g-iven  by   the  former  and endorsed by   the  latter,   for  5,000  shares iri the Everett & Spokane   Mining- Compam% which owned   the  Rambler mineral  claim,   near   Pass  creek.  The  note  was   placed  in   escrow,   but  was not   paid   by   either  defendant at  maturity.    The defence   was   that  the  stock was not  delivered,   consequently  there was  no  value  received.    In   answer to   this  plea   plaintiff   contended  that defendants  were   aware  that  the  stock was pooled,   so  no  share  certificates  could  be   issued.     Other  points  were also   involved,   but   the   evidence  being- mostly in  favor  of  defendants  the Court gave judgment in their favor.  J. D. Harvey, representing- P. Clark  and B. Kingsbury, well known mining-  men of Spokane, arrived last Sunday.  It is understood that Mr. Harvey  has a sort of roving- commission to  report to his principals upon any mining-property they can secure and it  would prove to their advantag-e to  handle.

'._..���-'������  George Edwin Furness, of the town  of Anaconda, Esquire, has been gazetted a notary public for the Yale Electoral District.  S3'"dney Russell Almond, Esquire, J.  P., Mining- Recorder, has been appointed a Deputy Registrar of the County  Court of Yale, at Grand Forks.  Aid. A. C. McKenzie is contemplating- a trip east. He will probably leave  Greenwood about the end of the current month and be absent until February'- or March next.  Mr. I/. Y. Birnie returned on Wednesday from Vernon, whither he had  gone on a visit of business and pleasure combined. Mrs. Birnie will remain  in Vernon for several weeks.  Nice looking-ore carrying- g:ood values, continues- to be met with in the  shaft at the Sunset, Deadwood camp.  The shaft is now between 50 and 60 ft.  in depth, and the ore improves as it  goes down.  Mr. Eeith this week accompanied the  Messrs. Castleman on a trip to the  Okanagan. The party went horse-  hunting-, but, expected to have some  g-ood shooting- as well. With such fine  weather the outing' must have been  very enjoyable.  Mr. and Mrs. C. M,. Shaw expect to  get settled in their new home next  week. Their dwelling- house is a substantial and conveniently arrang-ed  building-, situated almost at the far  encl of the northern addition to the  townsite. " ;  Among-  those  who have this year  done assessment work on their mineral  claims up the Main Kettle river or its  tributaries are Messrs. Currie, Dale,  Wallace and Wood. There are but  few prospectors in that section of the  country now, most having-left for more  populous parts.  Mayor Wood left on Wednesday to  look over the proposed route of the new  road from Eholt Meadow to the B. C.  mine, Summit camp, and to go thence  to the North Fork.of Kettle River to  examine some timber tip there he is  interested in. Messrs. Christopherson  and Feltoe went out ahead of .him with  the camp outfit.  Greenwood's contingent of visitors to  the Spokane Fruit Fair includes Aid.  and Mrs.. ��� Galloway and children,  Mrs. Phelan, Mrs. James Sutherland, Mr. and Mrs. Flood, Misses McDonald (2), Messrs. A. S. Black, X.  Bosshart, J. C. Haas, D. A. Holbrook,  Thos. McDonnell, W. T. Smith and  Thos. Walsh. Mr. and Mrs. J. McNicol of Midway also went down.  W. W. Gibbs, having- disposed of his  assay business and appliances to J. P.  Harlan, purposes spending- the winter  with his family at Portland, Oreg-on.  He may not be able to get away from  Greenwood until next month, or possibly later, business connected with some  of his mining- interests requiring- him  to remain here a few weeks long-er;  but he intends wintering- in Portland  and returning to Greenwood in the  spring-. Mr. Gibbs is one of the pioneers of Boundary Creek and he has  experienced many vicissitudes in the  district, but throug-h all has held on, in  confident assurance that eventually  thing-s would " pan out " satisfactorily  ���and he  has  not  been  disappointed.  He has well earned a holiday, and a  very enjoyable one, too, which may he  have.  J. P. McEeod, F. W. McEaine, R. H.  Berg-man and Mr. and Mrs. Thompson  were among- the Midway people who  visited Greenwood this week.  G. Bonner came over from Rossland  with R. Hig-g-inbottom, arriving- in  Greenwood on Thursday. He has  .mining- interests both in Boundary  Creek and Trail Creek districts and is  here on business connected with the  former.  Miss Armstrong- is now assistant  nurse at the Greenwood Hospital.  This lady arrived on Wednesday from  Armstrong-, Spaallmcheen V alley,  where she had been spending- a few  months after her arrival in the province from England.  The winze at the Mother L/ode is  now down about 75 feet. An improvement has taken place in the ore, which  for a time was not nearly so g-ood as  that coming- from the bottom  of the winze. The prospecting  shaft, at the upper end of the outcrop,  is now about 25 feet in depth, the ore  showing no change in character.  J. Christie is having- the timbers cut  and hauled for a shaft house on the  Spring-dale. There are excellent indications that the quartz lead already  opened up to a depth of 15 feet will  prove permanent and yield g-ood ore.  The Springdale, which is owned by  Messrs. A. S. Black, C. Scott Galloway  and J. Christie, is a very promising-  prospect.  F. A. Bielenberg- is reported to have  in an 8-ft vein of free milling- and concentrating- ore, an 18-inch pay streak,  which runs well in gold, on his Honolulu claim, Baker Creek. This creek  is a tributary of Rock Creek which it  joins about 12 miles above the mouth  of the latter. Mr. Bielenberg- went up  to the Honolulu last week taking- two  men with him to further prospect the  ledg-e. '���   ��� ���''������'.''.  J.J. Winters and N. J. JLa Plant,  who lately sold their ranch, situated  near Boundary Falls, to Mayor Wood  and C. Scott Gallowaj*-, have purchased  Comstock & McKee's Fashion livery  stables and business at Greenwood, of  which they are now in possession.  Mr. Winters has rented the building*  on Government street formerly occupied by The Times, and he and his wife  are now residing- in it.  Now that the Greenwood townsite  proprietors, Messrs. Wood & Galloway,  have purchased J. Bell's pre-emption,  near Boundary Falls, besides that of  Winters and La Plant, the former having an area of 160 acres, and the latter  320 acres, they own all the flat land on  both sides of Boundary Creek between  the townsites of Anaconda and Boundary Falls, and some of the hill land  as well.  Sinking* the main working- shaft has  been resumed at the Boundary Falls  claim. This shaft is now down over  70 feet. For a week or two sinking-  was suspended, and a crosscut was run .  both ways from the bottom of the shaft. \  This soon showed a strong- lead of  quartz dipping- towards the shaft, so it  was decided to carr}r the shaft down  into it. With seven to eig-ht feet of  well mineralized quartz, in which free  g-old can occasionally be seen, Mr.  Punch has eveiy encouragement to  further develop this claim.  Miss Miller, daughter of Thos. Miller, arrived in Greenwood on Wednesday, having come in per C. P. R., to  Penticton and thence by stage. Miss  Miller resided with her family in New  Zealand until about two years ago,  when she accompanied her father and  one of her brothers to Scotland. Since  then she has lived in Glasgow, Aberdeen, and other parts of Scotland. On  her wa3r into Boundary Creek she spent  a few days visiting the family of Mr*  Heggie at Enderby. She will now  make Greenwood her home, living with  her father and brother.  J. L. Smith, of Spokane, commonly  known as "Yellow Dog " Smith, rep*  resenting "Barbarian" Brown, of  recent South African notoriety in connection with a successful lawsuit for  heavy damages, is in Greenwood camp.  He is accompanied by F. Riffle, M. E.  of Victoria who is examining the Monarch and Tamarack claims upon which  he will report to R. E. Brown who  owns these claims.,  W. E. Hogg, of Montreal, is expected  to again visit Greenwood and may  , come in any day. He owns the Sunset, Crown Silver and C.O.D. claims^  in Deadwood camp. His manager, J.  H. Macfarlane, has received instructions to have the necessary papers prepared so that when, on the 19th inst.,  the amount is due under the bond on  the Sunset and Crown Silver, it may  be taken up." The amount of the bond  was $16,500, ten per cent, of which was  paid last year. Mr. Macfarlane will  receive a certified check for the balance  before the 19th inst., to hand over to  those entitled to receive it.  ENDERBY   and   VERNON.  T.KADK  MA.KK  Red Stak.

Mr. and Mrs. Nelson are expected to  return to Greenwood this evening.  They will have, the hearty good wishes  :pf numerous friends and acquaintances  for a long and happy married lite. It  has been announced that a dance .will  be held at the pioneer Hotel to-night  in honor of this auspicious event.  Business Change.  On Thursday last, J. P. Harlan took  possession   of 'the   assaying business,  apparatus,    chemicals,     fluxes,     etc.,  which he had just  purchased   from W.  W. Gibbs, who for about four years has  been doing assa}*- work in the Boundary  Creek district.    Mr. Harlan  commenced his practical experience in assaying  in 1889, with Clarence Hersey, of Lead-  ville, Colorado.    In the summer of   '92  he   came  into Boundary   Creek   on   a  prospecting trip.    The  following winter and spring he again worked in Mr.  Hersey's assay office,   and   in the summer of 1893 he returned   to   Boundary  Creek,   bringing  with   him   an   assay  outfit,   chiefly   for  his own use in connection with his prospecting work.    As  Mr. Gibbs'was then arranging to commence   business \. as   an    assay er,   Mr.  Harlan offered to refrain from starting  in opposition to. him,   which undertaking he has kept ever since.    In 1895 he  again went to Colorado, and. in the following   year   was   engag-ed   in   assay  work   at  the Montezuma   mine,  Ash-  croft, Col.    Returning   again to Boundary Creek, in January of the   carrent  year, he  resumed   prospecting,   which  he has   since   been  eng-aged   in.       In  1893, to oblige Messrs. Atwood & Blow-  yer, who then owned the Skylark, gratuitously made the   first   assay   of ore  from   that   claim, obtaining very high  returns.    During    the   time    he    and  others owned the Great Hopes claim in  Deadwood  camp, he  made over 140 assays  of ore obtained on -that claim, securing-  results  which   induced   him to  remain in the district.    It  will thus be  seen that he   is no novice in the   assay  business,   in  which   his  many friends  wish him much and increasing-success.  THE   L1EUT.-GQVERNORSHIP.  The following is a copy of a resolution, referred to elsewhere in this issue, unanimously adopted by the Boundary Creek Liberal Association at its  last ordinary meeting : Resolved, on  the motion of Andrew Learny, Seconded-by Thos.

It is stated^ upon what is believed to  "be very g-ood authority, that there has  been and still is much sickness among-  horses in Boundary Creek and contig-u-  ous districts. ., Three or four aggravated cases of g-landers have already occurred, and the suffering- animals being- past cure have been killed. Influenza, too, has been very prevalent,  particularly at Grand Prairie, where  numbers of horses have been affected  by this verj-- infectious malady. Across  the line on the Golville reservation  ��� much trouble is reported to have been  experienced by horse owners, including- freig-hters, some of whom are said  to have lost several horses by death.  If the further statements made may  be relied upon there is at least one  horse badly affected with g-landers at  larg-e on the Boundary Creek rang-es,  to the dang-er of other horses which are  thus improperly subjected to the risk  of infection. It does not, however, at  present appear to be anybody's particular business to deal with such a case,  if it exists. It seems therefore incumbent upon the g-overnment to act  promptly in this matter���to at least  immediately invest some qualified person with the requisite authority so that  he may order the isolation or, if necessary, the destruction of all horses and  cattle suffering- from infectious disease and may be empowered to so compel the carding- out of such orders.  As there is a duly qualified veterinary  ���surg-eon, of much experience and long-  practice, resident near Greenwood,  there should not be any difficulty in  arrang-ing- with him to act temporarily  as district inspector of live stock until  some permanent appointment can be  made. Will the authorities please  move in this matter without delay,  g-landers being- a disease likely to  .spread very rapidly.  Iviberal  The members of the local  Association present at the  held on the evening- of the 1st inst.,  unanimousl3r endorsed the proposal to  endeavor to secure the appointment of  Mr. William Templeman, matiag-ing-  editor, of the Victoria Times and a  leading- Liberal, as Lieutenant-Governor of B.

Across  the line on the Golville reservation  ��� much trouble is reported to have been  experienced by horse owners, including- freig-hters, some of whom are said  to have lost several horses by death.  If the further statements made may  be relied upon there is at least one  horse badly affected with g-landers at  larg-e on the Boundary Creek rang-es,  to the dang-er of other horses which are  thus improperly subjected to the risk  of infection. It does not, however, at  present appear to be anybody's particular business to deal with such a case,  if it exists. It seems therefore incumbent upon the g-overnment to act  promptly in this matter���to at least  immediately invest some qualified person with the requisite authority so that  he may order the isolation or, if neces-  sai-y, the destruction of all horses and  cattle suffering- from infectious disease and may be empowered to so compel the carding- out of such orders.  As there is a duly qualified veterinary  ���surg-eon, of much experience and long-  practice, resident near Greenwood,  there should not be any difficulty in  arrang-ing- with him to act temporarily  as district inspector of live stock until  some permanent appointment can be  made. Will the authorities please  move in this matter without delay,  g-landers being- a disease likely to  .spread very rapidly.  The members of the local Liberal  Association present at the meeting-  held on the evening- of the 1st inst.,  unanimous^' endorsed the proposal to  endecivor to secure the appointment of  Mr. William Templeman, matiag-ing-  editor, of the Victoria Times and a  leading- Liberal, as Lieutenant-Governor of B. C, in succession to Hon. F.  Dewdney, at the expiration of the lat-  ter's term of office.  >-9-<t9^9<a*-9^9^9^99t-9-t0>0^>-9-40>-9-*V>-9->i9>'9<��l'9-*��>'9-<99>'9-<9>-0-<ef-9'<9>-9-4lir  9  A  9  .A ���'''''���'     v  T.  ���������^������������-������-��-����*��-��-*e>-��-<��i��-��-4o>-��-<��^��-<��^��-<��i>-��-<����>-��-<��i��-��-<s��-��-<��'����-������-��^ot����^��A  I  r  Winchester,   Marlin  and   Savag-e  Rifles.
