Early Monday morning- a force of surveyors were at work running levels at  the mouth of Copper creek.. Copper  creek runs into Boundary creek opposite Mr, Keffer's residence,, about  three-quarters of a mile from the center of the city. It is reported that  negotiations are on foot for the purchase of all the land in the vicinity  held by private individuals.  Messrs. Hunner & Hanson have been  doing assessment work on, the Hawk-  eye, near the .Buckhorri. They encountered a ledge from which they  secured an assay value of tl89 in gold.  Several samples were taken from the  same ledge to another assayer who  gave values ranging from' $89 to $200.  Messrs. Hunner arid Hanson have decided to further develop  the property.  William Hall and J. Richardson  have done a large amount of development work one the Lone King, in Pass  creek camp. . A 100 foot tunnel has  been run along- a ledge.' Recently another ledge was uncovered. There is  from 8 to 10 feet of copper ore giving  good values. Messrs, Davis, Rees and  Murray will shortly start work on the  Colt, an extension of the Lone King.  A big strike has been made near the  the city. C. L. Portman, the brewer*  has been working- a property on the hill  above the city. He encountered a ledge  from which he received values" of $568  in gold. Mr. Portman has decided to  further develop the^property.  The Review, McDonnell, McEntire  & Co.'s Chesaw, property, continues to  astonish mining men. As development work proceeds the vein becomes  stronger and richer. A strong company is being floated to take over the  Review.  DEALERS  IN   SHELF  AND   .HEAVY    HARDWARE  .,.

Ralph Harron, representing the Cutting Packing company, of San Francisco, drove in via Curlew on Wednesday.  W. M. Wolverton, of Cascade City,  is in town today. He is on his way to  Phoenix, where he intends to open a  store. ���      .,     .  C. P. R. construction work here was  completed Monday night. Mr. Hughes  has moved his gang to work on one of  the branches.  H. ,C. Rice, of Marcus, has leased the  G-uess building on Fifth street and  will open a flour and feed store about  Sept. 1st. Mr. Rice has purchased a  lot for residence purposes.  fMessrs. Johnson, Norborn, and Keffer have been in town this week looking over possible smelter sites. It is  understood they have secured an option  on what is considered the best site  here.  Bert Ingram's house, on the Kettle  river, near Rock creek, was destroyed  by fire last week. Mrs. Ingram was  alone with the ababy when the fire  broke out, but started to get out what  she could, calling for help each time  sheian out. A man passing-heard her  and by his energetic hustling succeeded  in saving nearly all the ftiniture, etc.,  in the building. He was a whole fire  brigade in, himself, but modestly admitted in explanation that he had been  on an eastern fire brigade for eleven  years', and Mrs. Ingram is inclined to  believe it.   ,  Double wires will' be put up between  Curlew and Greenwood, making a loop  over the 23 miles between these two  towns. This is considered'better than  to have a single branch line, as the  loop will include all the towns on one  circuit.  The extent of the new telegraph line  to be constructed is nearly'.100 miles.  The rig-ht of building in British Co-  lunibio is held by charter given by the,  Canadian government to the Yale-  Kootenay Telegraph company. This  latter conipanj' is practically the same  as the Spokane Falls and Northern  Telegraph company.  . When asked if the line would be extended beyond the points included in  the present route, Mr.   Corbin  replied:  "We are in that country for all the  business and will go to any town in the  Boundary country that,will justify us  in making-the extension."  The Spokane Falls and Northern  telegraph line was constructed at the  same time the railroad was built to the  north, the work having been, com-  niencedin 1889. It was not sold President Hill of the Great Northern, at the  time the railroad cdeal was made, and  is now owned and operated by D. C.  Corbin. Its messages at this end of  the line are received at the Western  Union telegraph office. The principal  terminals to the north are Republic,  Rossland and Nelson. There is telephone communication now with the  towns in the Boundary country, but  this is the first telegraph line to be put  in there.  M.    3PR��TTc  Greenwood, B. c.

Secretary  New  Line to Be Built in the Boundary Country.  "Within 30 days we will have our  telegraph line constructed into Greenwood and within 70 days will have telegraph connections completed with all  the towns of the Boundary country,"  said Austin Corbin, manager of the  Sdokane Palls and Northern Telegraph company, this morning.  Mr. Corbin returned last evening  from a trip to the north, where' he decided upon the route of the extensions  that are to be made from the present  line of his telegraph company.  Work has already commenced on  these extensions and the construction  will be pushed rapidly. A crew of 20  men will be employed iu the work: and  if all goes well the circuit through the  Boundary country will be completed in  but little more than two months. At  the present time the Spokane Falls and  Northern Telegraph company has a  branch line running into Republic  from its main line. This goes from a  point about four miles north of Marcus  and is called the "state line."  The construction of the new line has  been commenced from Republic. From  that town the route chosen goes  directly to Curlew. From Curlew the  new line will go across the line to Midway and continue from that place to  Greenwood. The circuit from Curlew  also goes to Nelson, and from that  point across the Boundary line to  Grand Forks. Cascade is the next  town on the route, and then the line  will swing back to Marcus.  This is the route that will be followed  by the constructon crew; Within a  month the line will have- been built  from Republic to Curlew, Midway and  Greenwood, giving Spokane telegraph  connections with those busy mining  towns. In five or six weeks more it is  expected that the construction of the  line from Curlew to Nelson, Grand  Forks, Cascade and Marcus will have  been completed.  As soon as the circuit is completed  from Marcus to Republic by the way  of the northern mining camps, the old  state line running direct from Marcus  and   Republic   will     be   taken   down,  mmmmmmmmmmmmm  B.

Mr. Thompson brought with him  samples of ore from the Oro Denero  property on which a strike of great  importance has just been made. On  this group, in -which Rosslanders are  the chief shareholders, a shaft was  sunk to a depth of ISO feet on a very  promising ledge. In the meantime a  a new discovery was made in-stripping-  the surface showing, a big parallel  ledge being found about 100 feet distant  from the first. Open cuts demonstrated  that the new vein carries full 30 feet of  almost solid chalcopyrite ore, from-  which copper assays of 30 per cent hav  been obtained. A large specimen of  the ore is in the Miner window.  The intention of the management is  to run a crosscut from the bottom of  the present shaft to the new ledge, thus  gaining considerable depth at comparatively slight expense. Eighteen men  are at work on the'group.  The main object of Mr. Thompson's  western trip was to arrange for the installation on the Zalla M., in Sheridan  camp, of a boiler and 4-drill air compressor. This machinery will be in  place about the end of next week.  Twenty men are working. The owners  of the Zala M. consider it the highest-  grade property on the reservation. On  the ISO-foot level there is a drift 100  feet long, in ore averaging five feet iu  width and $150 to the ton.���Rossland  Miner.  ;yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaai|;  | R. F.

A mining man cannot afford to flatter or exaggerate, and as a mining  man,.I (ell you that the biggest mines  on this continent'will be right around  Greenwood.  I want to tell you this,' that the natural center of this great-mining counts Greenwood.  AVK akk going to build the smelter  as near the center as possible.  A-J'.r. OKKS will naturally gravitate to  Greenwood. It takes money to put on  steam; it costs. nothing to put on  brakes.  You have here a place that will beat  Butte.  I have told you you willf;have the  smelter. That is sure. It will be between Greenwood and Anaconda and  it will be going full blast next summer.  It is poor policy to haul ore up hill  and haul it down again.  ,    This  smelter   will  be   running   full  blast next summer.  efforts, irrespective of what may be,the  result. A fire bug should be shown no  mercy.. The attorney-general's department should spare no expense and  leave no stone1 unturned in bringing  the fire bugs to justice.  ' The ridding of the country of the  monster, who endanger the lives of  several people by setting fire to a  hotel while they slept, should not be  left to private individuals. It is one of  the unpleasant duties of the state.  SHOULD ACT AT ONCE.  A.N'O'J'HEK week has passed and the  children of the city are still denied the  advantages of those educational facilities which a paternal government has  been pleased to grant other sections of  the province. The parents are in a  measure to blame. They should take  steps to act at once. If they immediately call the attention of government  to the want of a school, it is reasonable  to suppose that steps will be taken to  secure temporary-quarters until a new  school building is provided. ;  SHOULD CONTRIBUTE.  The volunteer fire department have  written the Board of Underwriters that  the city had recently purchased S2,200  worth of hose and other lire apparatus,  that there is now a paid fire chief in  charge and that an effort is being  made to secure a hose wagon by public subscription, the city to furnish the  team. The department suggests that  as it is in the interests of insurance  companies that the most effective system of fire protection should be in  vogue, they should each contribute SSO  towards the cost of the wagon.  We do not believe in unduly taxing  any individual or company carrying  on business -within the city. It is a mistake to impose exorbitant licenses on  insurance companies, as is done in:,  other cities, but it is nevertheless a  fact that such high licenses are imposed and consequently the companies  should treat generously a city which  has heretofore imposed no license at  all. Under the circumstances the request of the fire department is a reason-  , able one and should receive a favorable reply from the board of underwriters.  Sknsations are being manufactured  rapidly around Columbia and Grand  Forks these days.  000 feet of hose from the Guttapercha  and Rubber company, all of which go  to prove the popularity and reliability  of this company's^ goods in the several  fire departments in the west. The  contracts . for the"~above hose and fittings was placed with Mr. A. G. Mc-  Kenney, the British Columbia representative of the company, who left for  Rossland today.  m # ��& 4* 4" 4* * 4 4* 4 4* ���fra?  4��  4��  03  >-*  52  ��  >  4��  4��   r+  Grand Forks with a smelter gets  only par for its debentures.

There will be other  smelters built.  Paui, will plant, Boundary Creek  water and Greenwood will get the increase.  Trains   will be running to Greenwood by October 1.  Who said Grand Forks?  FIRE SUPPLIES PURCHASED.  THE GOVERNMENT.  The coast papers are busy counting  members' noses these days and figure  out the government in the majority or  minority, according to their respective  political views. Considering the defections of Jos.. Martin and D. W.  Higgins and the reported desertion of  Hon. Helgesen and R. MacPherson,  the government is numerically weak  at best; but its greatest weakness lies  in its lack of ability. Outside of Mr.  Cotton there is not one man on the  government side who can put up a  strong fight; all the fighters are now  on the other side. The government  was weak in, members when it began,  but Jos. Martin is a host in himself  when there is any fighting to be done.  If the government lives until the legislature is called, it will be only to meet  its death at the hands of an opposition  that is now stronger than itself.  With its death will come a condition  that will be extremely unsatisfactory.  While those who no longer support the  Semlin government may be strong  enough to defeat it, their strength  ceases if they were placed in a similar  position themselves. Their destructive  power rests with Joseph Martin and  Joseph Martin as the real leader of another government is an   impossibility.  THE  SMELTER.  Gkeknwood is to be congratulated  upon the establishment of a smelter at  its very door. A smelter can not make  a city, but it is no unimportant agent  in bringing business to a city. The  Mother Lode smelter will be in such a  position that'any advantage derived  from its operation must necessarily  fall to Greenwood. As a mining center Greenwood's future was always assured, but the establishment of a  smelter here also centralizes what  many people believe is the better-half  of the mining industry.  THE  FIRE BUG.  Tin-: Columbia Townsite company,  who it is understood employed detectives to locate the fire bug, deserves  the.    very    greatest    credit   for   their  By the City Council from the Cutta Percha  and Rubber Company.  The committee who were appointed  by the city covncil /;to deal with the  matter of purchasing additional fire  hose and supplies, met last Tuesday  forenoon, and after considering the  several brands and makes, unanimously decided to place the order with  the Gutta Percha and Rubber Manufacturing company of Toronto for 1,500  feet of their Paragon rubber-lined fire  hose, 3^ inches, coupled complete, at  90 cents per foot; also three-ply pipes,  three controlling nozzles, three shut-off  connections, hose expander, and other  necessary fittings required by the fire  department. A fire-bell of 700 pounds  weight and helmets for the firemen  were also purchased.

Two Men Arrested'at Grand.Forks for Burning  Columbia Hotel.-  Last week Robert Cameron and  .Chas. Mullen were arrested and lodged^  in jail at Grand Forks. Cameron was  found near Spokane by detectives and  induced to come across the line where  he was arrested by Officers Dinsmore  and Darraugh. Mullen was arrested  in Grand Forks. Cameron is charged  with setting fire to the Hotel Columbia,  on July 17th,, and Mullen is held,  charged with paying him for doing so.  They were up for a hearing before  Justice of the Peace Chas. Hay, of Co-  ' lumbia, but were remanded for eight  days. ���'���',.-,��������� ,.  The arrests and many of  the rumors  connected therewith, have made one of  the greatest sensations of the province  It appears that the.Columbia. Townsite  company   believing  that the  fire was.  the   work  of   aii  incendiary,   secured  Pinkerton   detectives.     They   worked  quietly   and   scarcely   any  one knew  their presence in the district  until  the  ,., arrests were made.    One of the detectives was here  about  two  weeks ago.  He registered at the Imperial hotel  as,  M. F. Donahue, of Denver,   Colo.    He  claimed to be a mining man  appeared  anxious  tp figure on   the purchase of  the water power  at Boundary   Falls.  He was  in fact hunting for Cameron.  One of the theories of the detectives is  i that  the Columbia  hotel  fire arid the  burning of four  hotels in Greenwood  ���were the handiwork of the same gang.  Robert Cameron lived in Greenwood  for a short time., During the Dominion  Da)' celebration he secured evergreens  for decorating the streets and knocked  about town for several days before going to Grand Forks.    Mullen  is a well  known  gambler.    He  ran  a house in  Seattle  in  the  boom days and was  at  one time reputed to be  wealthy.    During recent years he lived in Vancouver,  Spokane  and Rossland.    He came  to  Grand Forks v few months ago, and at  the time of his arrest  was running  a  game in L- A. Manley's saloon.  There are many rumors connected  with the arrests. Further developments may be expected.  THE CITY COUNCIL.  here last week.    The Republic Pioneer  describing the run away says:  The incoming stage from Grand  Forks met -with a serious accident  Saturday afternoon about a half mile  from town. ,: In coming down the steep  grade east of town the horses became  unmanageable and ran away, overturning the stage and injuring several  of the passengers and the driver, Frank  Anderson. -  It was a terrible dash down the hill,  and it is most remarkable that the  casualties were not more serious. It'  was a piece of good fortune that there  were not some deaths.  When the stage reached the brow of  the hill, and just as the decent was  commenced, Anderson reached for the  foot-brake. He caught it, but his foot  slipped down upon it, and before he  could catch it again the heavily loaded  stage began to crowd upon the horses  and they commenced to run. In an instant they were on the jump, and gaining speed as they deceuded the long  grade. It was now evident that it  would be impossible to check them,  and the only thing to do was to keep  them, if possible, on the road.  There were six passengers inside  and one with the driver, and they were  all thoroughly frightened. Some  thought of leaping for their lives, but  before they had time to do it the stage  was going at such speed that to jump  meant death.  Down the hill the horses flew, the  stage swaying back and forth like a  ship in a choppy sea. Every small  obstacle encountered tossed the vehicle  in the air; one instant it was on two  wheels, then on none at all. At each  little turn in the road the passengers  were tossed violently about, and in  this perilous condition they remained  until the crash came. On a level piece  of road at the foot of the grade the  stage went over.. The cargo of human  life was dumped out and away went  the horses and the empty vehicle upside down. Before any one could regain their senses the runaway team  was out of sight.  OUR:  KETTLE   RIVER  MINING   DIVISION.  Action  for Damages���Kick   Against  Taxes-  Routine Business.  At: the regular meeting of the city  council held Monday evening, the  mayor presided and Aid. Wood, Sutherland, Beath and Fisher were present.  The Yale Lumber company offered to  supply the city with lumber at $17.50  per thousand. Received and filed.  Permission was granted John A. Coul-  son to use Deadwood street while building the Fletcher block. Sidney M.  Johnson, Geo. H. Collins, D. Smith  and 25 others petitioned the council to  have Gold street graded to the  southerly limit of the city. Tabled for  future consideration. Fire Chief Hen-  ton submitted his first report which included an inventory of the available  assets of the department. He also reported haying condemned eight buildings using stovepipes and instructed  owners to put in brick chimneys.  Pringle & Whiteside, on behalf of  Rolt & Grogan, protested against taxes  to the.amount of $189.50. They considered this exorbitant and complained  of not being notified in time to appeal  at the court of revision. Referred to  the city solicitor.  Hallett & Shaw wrote as follows:  "Messrs. Rendell & Co. have retained  us to write you, calling your immediate  attention to the fact that the street  work now being- done by the corporation in front of their premises, at the  corner of Greenwood and Copper  streets, is greatly damaging their property. The building thereon was placed  on grade under instructions from the  city engineers in office during its construction. If the street and sidewalk are  not at once replaced at the level at  which they were last week, we are instructed to commence action against  the city for damages." This communication was referred to the city  solicitor.  Aid. Sutherland gave notice to introduce a by-law to amend the water rate  by-law. The treasurer reported the  final payment on the Hull ranch. Aid.  Wood brought up the matter of properly  advertising the city. The question was  referred to the board of trade and the  council adjourned.  Record   of Mineral  Locations for the Week  Ending August 30,1899.  Aug-ust 23.  Vancouver, West Copper camp, J.

Rathbone \yho Has Been in Camps  AH Over the World;  Edgar B. Rathbone, a mining engi-  gineer of world-wide reputation, has  arrived in Cascade direct from London,  England, and for a month or two will  make this his .basis of investigations  in the Boundary creek and Christina  lake mineral sections, that being one  one of the special objects of his visit at  , this time.  Mr. Rathbone was for two years mining inspector for the Boer government,  in the Transvaal, being the only  Englishman who was ever entrusted  ' with a position of that importance by  Oom Paul Kruger. During that time  he had bout 50,000 miners who worked  underground, under him. In addition  to this Mr. Rathbone has visited and  examined mines,., in every American  mining state, in South and Central  America, in East, West and South  Africa, and almost every camp in  British Columbia. He was the one who  introduced' Colonel I. N. Peyton to Lord  !������ Duferin and Whittaker, Wright, the  the prdmoters of the British America  Corporation in London, and it was  largely on the strength of Mr. Rath-  bone's report of the great Le Roi mine  that the sale was finally consummated  for $3,000,000.' He is therefore in touch  with the leaders of the greatest money  centers of the world.       -        .___���._  While in and around Cascade it is  Mr. Rathbone's purpose to look over  some of the best properties within a  day's ride of that city. He doer not  give out what will be the result in case  his investigations are satisfactory, but  it is fair to assert that he will not be  slow in interesting the deeded capital.  Mr. Rathbone is already interested  in Cascade, being a director of the  British Columbia Mercantile and Mining Syndicate, limited, of London,  England, the head office and store of  which in this province is located Jin  Cascade. He expresses himself as much  pleased with the result of the concern's  operations thus far, in the year it has  been established, and it is likely that  more capital will be put in at an early  day and both the mercantile and mining features of the concern considerably  extended.  June 28, J. L. Scardorf, of Camp McKinney, paid duty on 54 pounds of tobacco to Mr. Sidley, as customs-officer;  subsequently Mr. Sidley. got information that Scardorf had brought in 210  pounds, and not being able to find the  tobacco brought suit for the value of it.  Mr. Nicholson appeared for the defendant and in an eloquent and able manner endeavored to prove that the defendant had paid the duty or that the  person from whom he bought it had  paid it to Mr. Kruger at Osoyoos.  There were several witnesses examined  and the case lasted till 7 o'clock in the  evening. The court held that the case,  as to the amount of tobacco was not  proven and refused costs to several of  the witnesses, owing to the unsatisfactory and contradictory nature of their  evidence. These were J. P. McCuddy,  S. H. Hayes and J. Loucks.  Immediately after the conclusion of  the case, Mr. Sidley laid a criminal information against Scardorf for importing tobacco without reporting the  same to the custom house. The defendant plead guilty and was fined $50.  Why Advertising Does Not Pay.  East of the Sierras fake advertising  schemes no longer exist. West of the  Sierras the books, souvenirs, programmes, "specials" survive. East of  the Sierras no -one will advertise in  anything but a live journal with a  good circulation among probable buyers. West of the Sierras the smooth  talker is still able to coax advertising  from business men by telling what his  book or transient publication is "going" to be. East of the Sierras men  have learned that money so paid is  thrown away. i. West of the Sierras  men have not yet learned that no transient advertising scheme has any business claim to patronage, as it cannot  give any value for money received.���  Mining and Scientific Press.,  MINERS and : :  PROSPECTORS  should Wear   : :  Ames Holden Co.'s  "Columbia"  " Kootenay ".

W. C. McDOUGALL.  Heteesen Bolts.  According to the B. C. Mining  Journal Hans Helgesen has rebelled.  He gives his views in the following:  "H. Helgeson, M. P. P., who returned to Cariboo this week, and is just  down from Atlin, where he spent the  season, says that Cariboo' miners are  good enough for him yet, and that  while there are good properties that  will pay for working in Atlin, everything is as yet undeveloped and the  country has been unduly boomed as a  gold camp.  "Politically, Mr. jjelg-esen said, in a  conversation with a representative of  the Journal, that the laws passed last  session .. had been in several cases  against his judgment, and that the  mining regulations now in force should  be radically changed. That he was unable last session to get absolutely  necessary appropriations for the roads  in Cariboo, and that many things  should have been done that were not,  to improve Cariboo's condition. It being suggested that had Messrs. Helgesen and Kinchant stood together and  made absolute demands, the government could not possibly have refused  any request of theirs, Mr. Helgesen  agreed, but stated that at that time,  for reasons it was impossible to give  now they did not do so. He is now on  his way to visit his constituency and  will give an account of his stewardship.  Mr. Helgesen authorized the Journal  to say as his unalterable conclusions,  first, that the eight-hour law was unwise legislation and .should not have  been passed, at least at this time, and  that various rulings of the commissioner mines must be changed; second,  that the anti-alien legislation was a  mistake, third, that if the present government does not at the very earliest  date repeal these obnoxious measures  and make new regulations in the mining department, amending the license  act, etc., and give to Cariboo the attention it should but has not received  at its hands, he will withdraw his support and will sit at the coming session  in the opposition. That this statement was made after careful consideration and as an expression of his views  to be given his constituenc3r. The conversation took place in the presence of  several mining men, residents of Cariboo and constituents of Mr. Helgesen,  who, to a man, assured him that his  present views were those of at least the  great majority if not of all of his constituents."  ��� OO  ��� We have paid special attention  to the construction of Pumping  Machinery for duty in mines,  our unsurpassed facilities and  methods have given our Pumps  a Dominion wide reputation.

J. J. MILLER.  Greenwood, July 22,1899, '''-''^t..  ��� in&  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  Mr, Paul Johnson, M, E,, Takes the People Into His Confidence  at the Big Banqnet Given in His Honor on  Saturday Evening.  HE ELOQUENTLY TELLS THE PEGULlflR riDTIHTHES" GREEimOD ENJOYS  Asa Mining and Smelting Genter/^The Butte of British Gv  lumbia^Enthusiastic  Speeches   Delivered   by   Other ��  Guests^/An Event that Marks a New Era  in Greenwood"s  Progress,  Paul Johnson, M. E., has spoken.  At the board of trade banquet on  Saturday night he took the fifty business men present into his confidence  arid told them facts about the city in  which they lived that they did not  ��������� realize before. He told them that  they were residents of a city that is  the greatest mining center on the continent and that Greenwood will rapidly  develop into a greater Butte. He told  them that this was the most advantageous point and that the smelter will  be built here.  The banquet was in- every way a  success. Seats were prepared for fifty  guests and every seat was filled. The  Pioneer mauagement,in whose hotel the  banquet was served, did itself credit in  providing palatable edibles and in the  service. The other speakers were  happy in their remarks and everyone  was unanimous in their opinion that  the banquet was a great success. .  Scott Galloway, president of the  board of trade, occupied the seat at the  head of the table, at his right was Paul  Johnson, M. E., and to his left Frederic'  Keffer, M. E., the guests of the evening. F: J. Finucane, manager of the  Bank of Montreal,Mayor Hardy and D.  A. Cameron, vice president of the  board of trade, occupied seats at-the  head of the table.  ' The following were among those  who were present: T. M. Gulley, A.  T. Kendrick, W. M. Law, Dr. Oppen-  heimer, G. Arthur Rendell, A. Ferguson, E. A. Bielenburg, Harry Howson,  Aid. Cameron, I. H. Hallett, Julius  Ehrlich, Blake Wilson, James Kerr,  Dr. Schon, J. H. Macfarlane, J. W.  Smith, J. J. Caulfield, Robert Wood,  W. A. Campbell, Jno. McGregor, D. R.  McElmon.Geo. B. Eeyson,A. Branson,  Dr. Matnison, J. F. White, Geo. Cross,  R. E. Gosnell, Geo. F. Miller, M. E;  Miller, Duncan Ross. D. F. Mcintosh,  A. H. Sperry, M. Tebo, R. B. Kerr,  Thos.. Miller, Geo. R. Naden, W. O.  Robbins, A. Woolrich, D. Thomas.  The menu was as follows:  Consomme.  Baked Salmon, Tartar Sauce.  Olives. Celery.  Shrimp Salad, Mayonaise.  Lamb Chops Breaded, French Peas.  Saute of Chickeni Mushroom Sauce.  Sliced Tomatoes. Asparag-ns.  Prime Ribs of Beef, Au Jus,  Brown Potatoes.  Pineapple Ice Cream. Assorted cake.  Fruit, Nuts' Rasins.  Rochefort cheese.  coffee. Tea.  President Galloway proposed- the  toast to the "Queen," and it was enthusiastically responded to. He also  proposed "The President of the United  States," Mr. Law replying in an eloquent speech: M. E. Miller also responded iu a brief but eloquent address.  Vice President Cameron proposed  the toast, "Canada, Our Own Country."  In glowing terms he pictured the rapid  development of the country and stated  that the greatest province of them all  was B. C. He did not believe in a  narrow selfish policy. He believed in  welcoming such men as Paul Johnson  and Frederic Keffer to develop the  wealth of this great province. (Ap-  plaus.) He coupled with the toast the  names of W. A. Campbell and M.  Tebo.  Mr. Campbell agreed with Mr.  Cameron that the grandest province of  all was B. C. It attracted men of  brains from all parts of the earth. It  attracted men aven from Mexico. He  had known Paul Johnson for four  years and he was a gentlemen that led  in the smelting world. His advice was  also sought after and always accepted.  The only fault the speaker had to find  with Paul Johnson was that his better-  half was in Sweden. (Laughter.) Mr.  Campbell referred to the smelter and  closed with an eloquent peroration on  this great country of ours.  Mr. Tebo also replied in a short and  witty speech,    A.  Furguson followed  in a song, the guests joining in an energetic chorus.  R. B. Kerr proposed the "City of  Greenwood." He eloquently described  the big properties that encircle the city,  referring particularly to the Mother  Lode with its 186 feet ore. The Le  Roi, which made Rossland, is satisfied  with 9 or 10 feet, bufc-'the Mother Lode  has 186. (Applause.) A great deal  had been heard about South Africa,  but an engineer who recently arrived  from' there stated that the Mother Lode  was worth all the mines of South  Africa. Mr. Kerr referred to the  smelting possibilities and congratulated the city upon having Mr. Johnson here to make the best of the  mineral resources- He referred to Mr.  Wood as the "Grand Old Man" of  Greenwood and coupled his name with  the host.,,.--..'''  Mr. Wood was warmly applauded  upon rising to, respond. , He referred to  the rapid development made by the  city, the^particular advantages which  she enjoys and welcomed the guest of  the evening to the city.  John McGregor also  spoke  briefly.  E.  A.  Bielenberg. delighted  the audience with one of, his inimitable songs.  F. J. Finucane then rose  to  propose  the   toast,   "Our   Guests."      He   con-  gratulatedthe city upon the presence of  his   friend,   Paul   Johnson.    He   had  known Mr. Johnson   for five years and  he could not speak too  highly  of him.  When   his   hearers ' knew  himlouger  the3' could appreciate him better than  he (the speaker) could tell  them.   Mr.  Johnson stood at the  head  of his pro-  profession.    He was the  biggest man  in the business (laughter), big in body,  big   in   intellect,  big  in haart.    (Applause.)  Paul Johnson easily led in the  smelting world.   The trusted expert of  the  Guggenheimrs ahd   other   financiers,  Greenwood  was to be congratulated���that the citizen of the world, the  "cosmopolite" was to become a citizen  of Greenwood,   to become interested in  her   future.     (Great   applause.)     Mr.  Finucane   then   read   Mr.   Johnson's  record   which   was   published   in  the  Times last week.    Continuing, he said  that Mr. Johnson's coming was of the  utmost importance.    Mr. Johnson was  going to tell them that the smelter was  going to be built in Greenwood. (Great  cheers.)   This   would   insure a   great  city   and. insure   the  success   of   the  mines.-   It meant a great industry and  he  understood the company   intended  to   treat all the ores offered.    Greenwood was to be congratulated upon the  presence of such able  men.    He referred  to  the success of Mr. Keffer and  other mining men  present,   but Paul  Johnson   was  a  Saul   among the prophets.    (Applause.)  MR. PAUI, JOHNSON.  Mr. Johson's reception when he rose  to respond was a most enthusiastic  one. Mr. Finucane's remarks regarding the establishment of a smelter had  aroused the audience and they made  the rafters ring in their welcome. Mr.  Johnson's very presence breaths encouragement. As he once described  the gentleman who introduced him, he  is hitnslf a "genial, jolly, jovial gentleman." Besides being a builder of  smelters, he possesses the additional  merit of being an excellent after dinner speaker. Sufficient accent has  clung to him to make his words sound  pleasant and he has the happy faculty  of saying the right thing at the right  time.  He thanked his audience for the kind  way in which they had welcomed him  to their city. He thanked his friend,  Mr. Finucane, for his very flattering  words.  "I knew Mr. Finucane some five  years ago," said he, "I was then in  Nelson. I was offered a big salary to  go to Mexico and I went. I was then  tendered a banquet similar to this one  and   I   told  my  friends  there  that  11  would come back to  British   Columbia  again,   because  it  was   the country   I  liked and I liked its people!    I kept my  promise and I was delighted to find my  friend, Mr. Finucane, was here to welcome me.   (Applause.) I have travelled  a good,deal, both   north and south,' but  I like the north better.    I was ,born  in  the north.    It is my country.    There is  a big difference between  the people  of  the north and south.     History tells me  that   if  we  want   men   of energy,   of  push and enterprise we can find  them  only in the north.    They are the choice  of my heart.     I also like the people of  the west.   Civilization  goes from east  to   west. , The  people of  the east are  slower than you are.    They are happy  and contented, no doubt, but you have  the go  and  push.    I like British Columbia,  so I am  here.    I had a great  many mountains to come over, that is  all right too. Mountains don't frighten  me because   they   are   needed in my  business.   Let  me   tell   you that big  mines   are   found   in  big mountains.  (Applause.)   I have seen a whole lot of  mines in my  time;���big mines���andi  don't talk bosh or nonsense when I tell  you,  that you   have got them   right  heie.    (Great cheers.)   I haven't seen  all  the   camps.     I'll   do   that   pretty  quickly.    But   I   have, kept  my   eyes  open since coming here.     I have' kept  niy wits about me.    From, what I have  seen, from what your mining men tell  me,  who  have been here a long time,  I must say that you  have large veins  and   large deposits of ore.    You have  big things and lots of them.  A mining  man cannot afford to flatter or exaggerate,   and   as  a mining man, I tell you  that  the  biggest  mines on this continent will be right around Greenwood.  (Great  cheers.)   I came  to Boundary  Creek to build a smelter.    There is the  Mother Lode and -there are other leads.  (Laughter.)    They  may not all be 186  feet  wide, but they are big���very big  and that means large quantities of ore  to be smelted  at low prices.    That is  going to  be our policy: to treat large  quantities of ore at  a lower price than  any body else.    (Applause,)  "I have seen a good deal since coming here " and I want to tell you this,  gentlemen, that the natural center for  this great mining district is Greenwood. We are going to build the  smelter as near the center as possible.  (Great cheers.) We are going to build  here, (Tremendous applause,) It is  the best place (renewed cheering); all  ores will naturally gravitate here.  (Cheers.) It takes money to put on  steam, but nothing to put on brakes.  (Laughter and applause.) We are going to build the smelter here in Greenwood, just between Greenwood and  Anaconda. Smelting can be done here  as cheaply as any place in Canada.  We want your hearty support in the  matter. We want all the ore you can  bring us and we will treat you square.  (Greet cheers.)  Mr. Mcintosh:- "We'llsend you ores  as long as you will smelt them."  Mr. Johnson: "And we'll smelt  them as long as you send them and as  much as you can send, and I will go  further and say, we will give you  cheaper rates than the other fellow.  (Cheers.)     ,  "Permit me to congratulate you gentlemen, upon your great advantages,"  continued Mr. Johnson amid the  ���greatest enthusiasm. "You have here  a place that will beat Butte. Other  places sound well.- Grand Forks is all  right, but it is poor policy to haul ore  up hill and down again. Greenwood is  the center; it has ore all around. You  can come, every manager can come  down to the smelter and see that he is  treated fairly.    (Applause.)  "I have told you that you will have a  smelter. That is true. It will be between Greenwood and Anaconda and  it will be running next summer. Work  your mines gentlemen. We will take  all the ores you can send us. We will  keep building as our business increases.  We will do your work cheaply and we  will treat you square."  It would be difficult to describe the  enthusiasm which was created by Mr.  Johnson's speech. He was cheered  again and again and when he concluded the audience sang, "He's a Jolly  Good Fellow," as it never had been  sung before.  MR. KEFFER.  Mr. Keffer agreed with the remarks  of the guest of the evening. He believed the smelter should be located at  a central point to the mines. Greenwood was certainly destined to become a large mining center. He felt  sure that Mr. Johnson's statements  were within the mark and if nothing  went wrong the smelter would be built  in a short time.  J.  H.   MACFARLANE.  Mr. Macfarlane, manager of the  Montreal-Boundary Creek company,  listened with a great deal of pleasure to  the speeches. One speaker had jumped  from theMotherLode to theOldlronsides  but he represented a property between I  the two which warranted the company  whom lie had the honor to represent in  installing the largest plant , ever  brought into the district. (Loud applause.) Mr. Macfarlane made a strong  and interesting speech and was followed by '  DUNCAN   M'lNTOSII.  President of the Winnipeg Mining  company. Mr. Mcintosh humorousU'  referred to the old timers like Mr.  Wood, Mayor Hardy, James "Kerr and  G. Arthur Rendell, and spoke about  the development of the mines from the  time they were mere prospects until  today. He paid a compliment to the  companies operating in the district.  Mr. Thos. Miller in a neat speech  proposed our municipal institutions  and Mayor Hardy replied. He felt  proud to be mayor of Greenwood that  night. He was sure that Greenwood  was going to be a lage city.  Duncan Ross proposed "Our Mines,"  and coupled the names of Mr. Keffer,  Mr. Macfarlane, Mr. Mcintosh, Mr.  James Kerr, and A. Ferguson of the  King Fungus Mining company, all  of whom responded briefly.  Mayor Hardy was again heard in a  neat speech in proposing "Our Banking and Commercial Institutions."  The bank managers and Messrs.. Rendell, Sperry and Kendrick replied in  well chosen speeches, but lack of space  prevents the publication of remarks in  detail. -,.'���' .���''���'���:  J. W. Smith proposed "The Learned  Professions," .and Police Magistrate  Hallett responded.  Toasts to "The Press," "The Ladies"  and "Auld Lang Syne," brought the  banquet to a close.  ...���MONEY SAVED -  Is Money Made.

Powell's new hotel is nearing completion.' When built it will be the  most substantial and most comfortable hotel in the Boundary Creek district.  The Leland has been built for the comfort of the g-uests and not for show.    The  stone basement is fitted with a laundry, wine room, store room, and heating- fur  naces. There are fifty bedrooms with improve baths. The dining room is 35x40  feet. There is a spacious billard room,; a bar room, a sample room with cozy  clubrooms and a number of private offices. There is a broad piazza encircling  the building. The hotel is situated convenient to the business portion of the  city and yet sufficiently removed to be away from the noise and bustle. A first  class hotel man will be placed in charge.     < .  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.  Frank Fletcher, C. P. E. land agent  at Nelson, was in the city for several  days this week. ���:.���.-..  W. O. Wright, of London, Eng., arrived in the city on Thursday to spend  some time here.  Work has been started on the  Fletcher block at the corner of Dead-  wood and Copper streets. ' -  J. D.

The school building on Long Lake  street has;been renovated and repaired.  It will be. occupied by Mrs. Foreman  and Mrs.. Nicholls, who will be glad to  receive a few priuate boarders, and  roomers.  The . south Kootenay board of trade  has issued a neat illustrated pamphlet,  descriptiveot the beauties and, advantages of Nelson. It is accompanied by  an excellent map of Kootenay and  Boundary Creek districts.  Madden & Dalias have decided to  rebuild on Copper street. Work will  be started immediately. It is not yet  definitely known whether the Windsor  will be rebuilt as word has not yet  been received from F. S. Barnard, the  owner of the building.  The big railway contractors are moving to the Rainy river district where a  line of railway is being built. On  Wednesday Jim McDonell, of McDonnell Bros., left Greenwood for Nelson,  B. C. He will proceed from there  direct to the Rainy river district, taking his plant and most of his men with  him. Other contractors who operated  on the C. & W. proceeded him. |  D. W. Morgan and Max Karter arrived in the city this week and are now  renovating the Imperial hotel. Mr.  Karter who is accompanied by his  bride, received the hearty congratulations of his many friends in the city.  Grahame & Parry have fully decirled  to erect a large three-story hotel at the  corner of Deadwood and Copper streets.  The plans have been prepared by J. M.  Ratterbury, the well known architect  of Victoria. They outline a really  handsome structure.  Grand Forks has made a compromise  with the officials of the C. P. R. When  the company attempted to grade  through the city, the city authorities  ordered that obstructions be placed  across the track. Messrs. Drinkwater  and Tye came and had a conference  with the city council and Townsite  company. It was finally decided that  . the station should remain as located,  one and three-quarters miles from the  Yale hotel, but that it would be called  Grand Forks.  Messrs. Thomas and Greiger have  purchased the wholesale liquor business of Rendell & Co. The stock has  been removed to one of the stores in  the handsome block recently built by  Robert Wood, at the corner of Dead-  wood and Government streets. The  business has been merged into a joint  stock company. Mr. Grieger will manage the Greenwood business while Mr.  Thomas will remain at Rossland. R.  L. Evans has been engaged by the  firm in connection with the Greenwood  business.  G. R. Naden will leave  on  Monday  for Keremeos and Kruger mountain.  Have you looked at your subscription label?

Gaunce, of the firm of Gaunce  & Wickwire, returned last week from a  trip to the coast cities.  Randolph Stuart thas purchased W.  G. McMynn's interest in the Calumet  and Hecla group, and has now control  of the property.  W. Martin, of Martin Bros., Rossland, was in the city this week, coming in by the way of Eholt. He was  astonished at the remarkable growth of  the city since his visit here last  January.  The Greenwood fire brigade will give  a ball in the new George block, Copper  street, Monday evening- next, Labor  day. The.band of the department will  give a free promenade concert from 8  to 9 o'clock. Grand march at 9 sharp.  Supper will be served in the Pioneer  hotel.  C. E. Dickinson, Victoria, manager  of R. P. Rithet & Co.'s insurance business, and Tudor A. Liedmann, a well  known insurance man of San Francisco, spent the week in the city.

Both were well pleased with the substantial appearance of the town-and  also with the means provided for fighting fires.  G. A.Cross, the provincial manager  of the Canadian Mutual Loan and Investment company, was in the city for  several days this week. He succeeded  in organizing a local board of directors.

Gulley.   .''"���'  So far the street work,has been confined to Greenwood and Copper streets.  A 2-foot cut is being made on Green,  wood street near Copper. This will  doubtless necessitate the digging up of  the water main and,sinking it deeper as  it will not be safe from frost with two  feet of earth taken off. It is the intention of the council to grade other  streets if any funds are available.  Seventy-five men are at present em-,  ployed.  John Love, representing the Consolidated Stationery company of Winnipeg, was in the city taking orders for  his firm this week. Mr. Love was one  of the first travellers for stationery  houses to visit the district and his business has increasd to such an extent  that he is this time around with nearly  a ton of samples. Mr. Love before  leaving presented the new Presbyterian church with the best bible carried by his firm.  Thos. McDonnell had a visitor last  Saturday night who was determined to  get into his residence without invitation. About 2 o'clock in- the'morning  Mr. McDonnell was awakened by a  noise at the window.
