Copper St. Greenwood.   3  Some  men  can accurately size up a  situation   in  a   short   space of   time;  others    with    strong    prejudices   and  stronger admiration for their own narrow views cannot appreciate or realize  the rapid progress  and   development  that  is  going on around them.    Paul  Johnson  knew  what he was talking  about when he made the statement that  near Greenwood - were  bigger   mines  than in Butte. To prove this statement  he   had   only   to   point   to the great  Mother Lode.  Each day's development  work on this wonderful property reveals new wealth.    Last week the railway graders ran through 40 feet of ore  on   the   Primrose   ground,   adjoining  the Mother"Lbde, and owned by the B.  C.   Copper   company.    Surveys  made  since have clearly-demonstrated that  the railway had cut through the Mother  L,dde-vein which runs into the Primrose about 700 feet south   of the main_  shaft.    From the shaft the work  has  been   continued    northerly   500   feet;  showing   conclusively    that   the   pay  ore runs at least 1,200 feet along the  vein.    From  this strike on the Primrose  the ore  can be quarried into  the  cars on the track.    If no other ore were  available for thjg big smelter, enough  pay ore can be quarried -to furnish  at  least 100" tons a day.    But there is no  scarcity-of ore "at the' Mother Lode.  The last 80 ffeet of the north drift 'on  the 200-foot level  is solid pay cie.    It  --)���>  vey   the line  will begin to ascend the  hill near the Elkhorn brewery.   .It jyi'l  gradually   ascend,   passing near " the  Last Chance mine and then on to Phoe-.  nix.     The   distance   from   Deadwood"  street   to   Phoenix   by   the   surveyed,  route   is seven   miles,   and  the grade  will nowhere be more than seven.' oeYv  rent.    The cost of construction will be-"  much less than was at first' supposed.    *-"  There is very little heavy woritthe-ea.Vr^j'* V  tire distance.    The line is sure'to do' aTS* .-  large business,  not only  in canying-Sl'  passengers   and  freight,  but  also  in  carrying ore  from such properties  as  the Last   Chance which  are situated  avjay from the railway or branches.

In consequence of the declaration of  a dividend by the Okanagan F-ree Gold  company, there is some demand locally  for the company's shares. The week  has been a quiet one among the  brokers.    A  few thousand B. C. M. &  level is solid pay cie  will .uerage $25 to $30 in'all'v ilues.  Thia is not in pockets but is everj- inch  pay ore. .Paul Johnson was right.  He expects to find big mines where* he  finds them .and js^ not' prejudiced  against Boundary Creek/ Other people��� rwho7rbelieve-<-th.at the-.i-i^.-'niines  must be away from home, snarl and  whine ^vhen the'''"truth is tol'l "The  Vancouver '- News-Advertiser ,-orres-  pondent ma3'. succeed in keep. 'i -r Midway ajdeserted village", but he cannot-  queer the "Biggest Mines oii the Con^  tinent." He ought to take so.!>e of  whiskey cocktails and ch.impagne, he  refers to, and get rid of his 'j axndice.  "The biggest "mines on the continent  are near Greenwood." "Greenwood is  going to be a'larger city than Butte.'"  Paul Johnson said so and he knows.  The Midway correspondent ought to  cheer up. The Mother Lode itself will  need' another smelter, if a limit to its  "ore bodies'is not soon reached. There  are going' to be' smelters all the way  down Boundary creek, and some >vill  go to Midway unless they are driven  back by the verbose wisdom of the  man who cannot appreciate the possibilities of the district in which he resides.

' Independent Labor Party.  Another, important matter brought  up at the labor congress held in Montreal, was a resolution in favor of a  vote of�� all the labor organizations in  Canada being taken to decide%*hether  it would not be advisable to take inde-  pendent'political action by the foundation of a labor party, entirely distinct  from the old parties. The committee  on resoluHons reported'unfavorably to  the resolution, but it was strongly supported by several of the western delegates, and finally it was decided to refer the subject back to the committee  on resolutions.

The emploj-ment of a  large number of men by the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, Dominion Copper and  other companies was certain to build  up a town of more or less importance  adjacent to the mines.  The several hundred men earning  good wages had to live near the mines in  the absence of speedy and cheap means  for carrying them a distance to and  from their work. "Where so many  men are congregated hotels and business houses were sure to follow.  Geo. W. Rumberger a pioneer of the  camp was the first to take advantage  of these conditions. He secured the  surface rights for some of his claims,  subdivided into lots and placed them  on the market. The demand was good  and many lots -were sold at , good  figures. ��� t  Further up the hill from the present  town, J. B.'McArthur of Columbia has  subdivided the New York claim!,   ��� This  property has the advantage of a <>g-ood  supply   of  water.   A small lake that  has been sounded' to the depth of 175  without touching botton, is situated on  the claim.    The New-York  property if  it never secures any of the ��� business  portion will always fcc in demand '.for  residental property by those -who are  anxious to live near the mines.        ��� " i  " The Old f Ironsides "- company  -have  refused to sell any real estate.--' THey  have not yet determined  what ground  and how much they may need for their  mining  operations' and   as  mining is  their  first  consideration ' they 'have  wisely  refused  to, part  with   any " of  their surface rights. - They have" built  a dozen  next cottages  for 'the use of  their men - apd "are  building  a  large  bunk house that will accommodate '200  men.'

J  Electric Power in Mining.  Edward Bellamy in his "Looking  Backward" saw many exhibitions of  electrical power, which are now so  common that they fail to excite even  more.-than a passing glance, or command more than a moment's thought,  It is now in the power of those who  have the means at command to gratify  their desires, and add to their comfort,  to touch a "button" at their bedside in  the morning, light their kitchen fire,  heat their dressing room, dispel the  darkness from their apartment,awaken  servants and attendants and, within a  few minutes, enjoy an artistically  cooke'd breakfast, and ride to his place  of business upon an atomobile, without the scent of coal smoke upon his  raitnant or the suspicion of dust upon  his electrically brushed shoes, hat and  eoat.   ��� k  . What electricity has done and is doing in man's domestic economy, it is  doing, or may, do in simplifying and  facilitating , operations in mine, mill,  sampling and reduction works. What  is being done���in that direction is thus  spoken of .by-Thomas Tonge in his  contribution to the Mining and Engi  neering- Journal. He said: "Cripple  Creek.is, perhaps, the only gold mining district in,the world where a miner  can go toihis work in an electric street  car, descend the mine in an electric  hoistj-keep his mine dry by an electric  pumpj do his work by an electric light,  run drills operated by electric air compressors (possibly, in time to be superceded by direct electric drills) and fire  shots, by electricity from ^.'switchboard remote from.the,point of explosion."  _ The*directions in which" electric  power may be effectively employed in  minning cannot yet. be, hardly, approximately measured or" pointed out.  If an electric hoist can take,a man Tto  his underground level, and an electric  air compressor operate his>drills,* why  cannnot an electric shot break the rock,  an electric appliance dump it into the  electric'hoist, an electric engine -.raise  it to the surface to be carried byi.aii'  electric power to ,the reduction - works  run by electricity? Legitimate speculations upon what electric power may  do in mining operations is a waste of  ink or_words, for we are living in a day  and generation when "truth is stranger  than fiction."  An. exchange intimates that in the  Cripple Creek district the ,use of electric power effects a saving of "IS to, SO  per cent, according - to the location  and conditions of the mine. Electric  power-is revolutionizing the Cripple  Creek mining industry in reducing expenses, increasing profits, and,making  low grade ores available which, hitherto, were discarded as incapable of being treated at a profit. What electrical  power, has done for Cripple Creek, it  may do for every other minings center  or camp in the great northwest. And  it will be done in the not distant  future.-irWestern Mining World.  CHESAW TOWNSITE SAFE.  Boundary   Valley  Lodge  No. 38. I.O.O.F.

Duncan Ross Editor.  W. J. Harber Manager.  SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1899.  ELECTORS REGISTER.  In the current "issue of the British  Columbia Gazette, there appears a  notice to the effect that a Court of Revision will be held by John Kirkup,  collector of votes for the Rossland riding. -'As the old list has not been cancelled in this district, the Court of Revision is not of very great importance  to the public. It ought to remind them,  however, that it is important that their  names should appear on the provincial  voters' list.  Under amendments made at the last  session of the Dominion parliament,  the provincial lists will be used in all  future federal elections. Any elector  without his name on the provincial  list will be disfranchised both in pro  vincial and federal elections.  Outside of the importance attached  to a man's right to exercise his franchise, there is another consideration.-  A large voter's list gives a city or district a prestige in public matters it  cannot otherwise obtain. It would be  idle to approach a government demanding increased representation and  greater consideration with a small  voters' list.  There are 300 men in Greenwood  fully qualified whose names do not appear on the provincial voters' list.  There are 1,000 qualified men in Boundary Creek who are not registered.  The district never can secure justice if  electors fail to show their strength.  Every man should be registered. The  qualification is a simple one. A man  must be 21 years of age, a British subject, reside six months in the province  and two in the district to entitle him  to vote. <  Some cities attach so much importance to representation that the city  council pays canvassers so much for  each name they get placed on the roll.  Mining companies operating in the  district could render valuable assistance in this'work by- seeing- that- the  qualified men ' in " their employ are  registered.  In two weeks an average of 100 passengers a day will come to Greenwood.  Many of them will be men seeking investment. First impressions are often  lasting. The streets to the business  portion of the city from the station  should be made the best in the city. A  smooth street to ride over and a wide  sidewalk to walk over is a great relief  after a long railway trip.  The annual report of the Bank of  British North America, published elsewhere, makes interesting reading. The  chairman's reference to the progress  and development of different parts of  the country cannot but impress the  British investor. The Bank of B. N.  A. should prove a splendid advertising  agent in the old country.  Every voter should appoint himself  a committee of one to see that every  other voter is on the list.

The first clean-up has been made by  the .Okanagan Free Gold Fields, and  Mr. S! Thornton Lang-ley,has returned  to Rossland with two bricks of gold  which are the result of the clean-up.  The bricks were this afternoon lying  on the desk in Mr. J. S. C. Fraser's  office, in the Bank of Montreal, and  looked very tempting.- The value of  the bricks has not been made public.  The directors have declared a dividend  of 5 .per cent., equal to one-quarter of'a  cent a share, which will be paid Octo-,  ber ISth. Mr. Langley says the mine  is looking very well and many new  leads of good ore are being encountered  constantly.

PURE WATER SUPPLY.  The lots fronting on Main street in  "Phoenix run back -to Twin creek. The  majority of the buildings including  hotels have their back-yards and outhouses on this stream. All the refuse  is dumped at the rear and necessarily  the greater portion finds its way into  the stream. There is a rather well  established theory that water purifies  itself in distance, but Twin creek  under present conditions could -travel  one "hundred miles from Phoenix and  yet not reach Greenwood uncontamin-  ated. From Phoenix to the Greenwood  reservoir is scarcely more than four  miles. The water of Twin creek must  be full of impurities. Still Greenwood  people use it. The public interest demands that no time should be lost in  making provision for a larger and  purer supply of water for domestic purposes.  Since the above was written, Dr.  Schon, medical health officer, has asked  the Times to warn the people against  using Twin creek water for drinking,  purposes. The doctor has been to  Phoenix lately and is simply disgusted  with the state of affairs, from a sanitary point of view.  He has no jurisdiction outside the  city, but is doing what he can in the  city. The doctor has given instructions that water carts must draw their  supplies from Boundary creek.  The residents of the city should follow Dr. Schon'sad vice and avoid Twin  creek water.  W.' T. Smith and Thos. McDonnell  left for Spokane on Wednesday. ���- They  had with them the big exhibit for the  Spokane fruit fair.  A. D. McLennan, of Trail, has  opened Keough's hotel on Government  street. Mr. McLennan is a welll known  hotel man.

The organization can  cut  but little figure, in practical   politics  but it is more soothing  and  satisfactory  to discuss the hopelessness of a  cause and sympathize with each  other  in unison.    One would almost suppose  however,  that loyal' patriotic conser-  ..' vatives would discardp'arty politics for  the nonce  and lend  their support to a  government under   whose   administration the country is rapidly recovering  from 18' years' of misrule and   mismanagement.

Hill Top, IfitiiWlj, C. MebUii.r  ���The vag-aries of the stock exchange  are often inexplicable.    Mining1 stocks  particularly'have'a habit of running  up^ several points when there is nothing  to justify such a course, and they come  tumbling- down when   they   ought   to  have   an   upward   tendency.    A  few  weeks ago Morribon stock that had always been a prime favorite with local  buyers, began to go down without any  apparent cause.   Still it went down to  14 cents and then came up again to~its  position of 18 or 19 cents.   The general  '  public couldn't offer any explanation  for the decline. The mine never looked  "better. -Each"day's' development revealed new riches.   The cause for the  decline was a simple one. Some months  ago1,when MorrisQn- stock was selling  for about 10 cents, a couple of capitalists  "thought they would take a chance and  bought some' 160^000   sliares.' , Afew  weeks ago" something else took their  fancy,'and they wanted the money they  ^invested   in' Morrison.   Their, shares  * were placed on the market and all  sold. I,ittle -wonder, that Morrison  wept down temporarily.     '   ' -f  " - '��� Tfte stock has regained its old position  however.   If should and will go higher.  , it *i* impossible to j visit the property,  ���View the "big- ledges andvwell defined  -Walls, examine the rich iron ore and  l.not be'eonvinced that the Morrison is  destined to become a big mine.-.    ���    -  " ,<\* The   property is situated in Dead"  Wood camp, about four miles from the  * jfcity.~vlt.was* located5 some' years ago  by Jack "Morrison." He did some sur-  .���face work, exposing promising looking  bodies "of   ore. -^A  company   with   a  capitalization"of $1,000,000 was organized'to develop it.   Spokane capitalists  including Messrs.  Oliver and Loring  *secured" control,  and decided upon  a  .more vigorous policy. F. H. Oliver, the  -'manager,'1 had the plant removed from  the   Athelston, ,in   Wellington camp,  -Vand installed on the Morrison.- A tunnel was started on Copper'creek to run  *into the" teteep jhill.-  Ninety feet from  .'"fhe~ mouth a  vein of iron ore was encountered and 'crosscut 12 feet.   At a  distance of 250 feet from' the mouth of  the tunnel a contact' was  encountered  Certificates of Work.  September 20.  Star Pointer, P. J. Miller.  Albany, F. J. Miller.  Columbia, F. J.

The vein was crosscut for 73 feet when  the hanging wall was reached. No  better defined walls can be found anywhere. There is at least 18 inches of  talke on the footwall. At a point 400  feet from the mouth of the tunnel, an  upraise was made to the surface, a distance of 160 feet. The ore is iron,  carrying pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite.  The -73-foot vein will average $12 in  gold and 3 per cent copper. Like all  large veins, it has rich pockets that  will give much higher gold values.  On the surface too, other veins besides those crosscut in the tunnel have  been ^exposed. Surface values Irom  one of , these gave $5 to'$6 in gold and  as high as 14 per cent copper. The other  is a well defined vein of specular iron,  giving good values.  Since, installing the small plant,  about a year ago, over 1,000 feet of  work in the tunnel, upraise and drifts  has been done on the property. Mr.  Oliver has purchased av four-drill compressor plant from the Cariboo company of .Camp McKinney. Freight  . teams are now hauling it to the mine.  It will be installed in ten days. Drifting on the big ore vein will then be  commenced. The drift will be continued both ways. This will necessarily mean an output oof a large  quantity of pay ore. There are good  facilities for shipping. The branch  line now runs within a half mile of the  property. The C. P.-R. have surveyed  a spur into the mine and will build the  same before the. mine is ready to ship.  At the face of the tunnel a depth of  240 feet feet is secured. It is the intention to sink a winze another 100  feet and drift and crosscut at this level.  Fresh pork sausage daily  at Burns'  meat market.  KETTLE   RIVER MINING   DIVISION.

Rossland, September 24.���With reference to a statement that has been  made outside of Rossland, that the  War Eagle mine has been made to  contribute to the running powers of  the Centre Star at a sacrifice to the  former property, the manager, Mr.  Kirby, stated that only power not required in the War Eagle was used in  'the Centre Star from the War Eagle  plant. Owing to the conditions of the  big electric compressor in the War  Eagle, that mine will probably receive  additional power from the Centre Star  plant if it is required. The management is placing five compressors on  the Centre Star ground with an average capacity of seven drills each, and  the^e will be utilized until the new Centre Star compressor is finally erected.  Plans for the latter are now perfected.  The ore shipments are practically  the same a.s last week, 4,670 tons. The  Centre Star-commenced shipping this  evening. The shipments for the week  ending 23rd September, and year to  date (estimated!, are as follows:  MINES.

The general 'meeting of the proprietors of the Bank of British North  America was held at the offices of the  corporation, Clements'' L/ane, London,  E. C, on Tuesday. ��� Mr. E. A. Hoare  presided, the other directors being Mr.  J. H.'Brodie, Mr. Gaspard Farrer, Mr.  Richard H. Glyn, Mr. I. J., Kingsford,  and Mr. Frederic Lubbock.  The secretary, Mr. A. G. Wallis,  having read the notice calling the  meeting.  ��� The chairman moved the reception  and adoption of the report and balance  sheet. He said in the course of his"  speech: - -  "The balance sheet in our opinion  reveals satisfactory progress combined  with' a thoroughly sound position, and  in order to substantiate this statement  I will compare our present figures  with those of the corresponding period  of 1898, for in this way I think we arrive at a truer 'comparison*��� than ' by  placing the figures side by side with  those of the half year immediately preceding. Dealing first with our liabilities���the deposits on the 30th of June,  1899, compared with those of the 30th  of June, 1898, show, an increase of  ,��178,000. The notes in circulation  show an increase of .��31,000. This increase amounts to more 'than 10 per  cent, in the year, and is owing not  only to "general trade activity throughout the Dominion, but also to���the opening of our new branches in the far  north. The bills payable show an increase of ,��237,000, and these figures  appear likely to increase still further,  as we find an increasing demand for  our acceptances in New York, due I  have no doubt, to the excellent credit  which this bank has always enjoyed in  that city. Turning to our assets, the  cash and specie in hand show an increase of ��59,000; and here I would  particularly draw your attention to the  fact that the cash and specie amounting to ��568,000 are in the ratio of 40  per cent, to our immediate liabilities,  that is to say, to the current and deposit accounts payable on demand and  to the notes in circulation. This, you  will agree with me, is a thoroughly  sound position. The cash at call and  short notice, amounting to ,��1,233,000,  shows an increase of ��435,000. As regards our investments, the consols remain a constant quantity, but our  other investments are ��9,000 lower  than they were a year ago.  "The increase in every department  of our business has resulted in increased profits. For. the half year  ended June .30th, 1898, the profits  amounted ��29,519 13s. 10d., while for  the half year ' now, concluded they'  amount ��33,540 3s. 3d;, an increase of  ��3,030 10s. 5d.; and this result has been  obtained after making a very ample  provision, not only forbad debts, but  for every account respecting which we  feel the least doubt or hesitation.  From last half year we brought into  the account the sum of ��5,036, and' we  are now carrying forward to next half  year ��i0,288. ��� These figures are somewhat larger than those to which' we  have been accustomed-���our object being the further building up of .our reserve fund at the end of our financial'  year, an object which we must keep  steadfastly before us. After the last  annual' meeting, wlien by the appropriation of 15,000 pounds we brought  the reserve fund up to 300,000 pounds,  it was suggested to us by one or two of  the shareholders that, having  reached  El Creposculo,  Por Larranaga,  Benjamin Franklin,  Manuel Garcia, Alonza  El Ecuador  Bock and Africana  La Flor De R'Fulton  ^uiiiUiUiiiuuuiUiUiuuuuuiiaiiiiUUiiaiUiuu4UiiuiUiiiiuuiiiiiiia>auiaauiauiUiiiiia^  ..Turkish and Egyptian..

The chairman in following  the finance minister's example and  comparing their own figures of Jhne  30th, 1894, with the'present, said:  "On the former date our total 'liabilities ��� amounted to 4,260,000 pounds,  whereas they amount to 6,053,000, or  an increase of 33 per cent. During the  same period what have we been able to  do for our reserve fund? We have added to it only 25,000 pounds, or an increase of less than 10 per cent. During  the period under review banking has  been by no means uniformly profitable;  not only have we been unable to add  to our reserve fund at all during some  of these^years, but we'were even compelled to reduce our dividend, so that  our reserve fund has not keptpace with  the increase of our liabilities. It must,  however, be evident to you, as it is to  us, that with a constant increase in our  liabilities it is manifestly our duty, to  continue to build up our reserve fund,  and we hope at the conclusion of the  financial year, if our business continues to prosper, we may be'able to  take a" further step in that direction.".,  J After'referring to tho general trade  prosperity in Quebec province, the  chairman proceeded:   '   . ������  "The   contribution    required    from  each bank is a sum equal to 5 per cent,  of its 'average , note  circulation.    The  fund is  under the control of the minister of ffnance, and bears interest at  the rate of 3 per cent, jjer annum; and  it is further  provided the payment of  the   notes   issued  and  in   circulation  shall constitute a first charge upon the  assets of a bank in case of its  insolvency.    Now, it appeai.s tojme that this  is a reasonable proviso,' and  one that  should  make   the   position of all the  contributory   banks perfectly   secure,  fo"r it must be a yery bad case  indeed  where the total  assets of a bank, on  realization,"fail -to produce a sum sufficient to redeem  its notes in' circulation, seeing that it is provided by sec-'  tion 51 of the act that the total amount  of such^ notes   in   circulation  at any  time shall< not exceed the amount of  the 'unimpaired, paid-up capital of the  bank;'- but'-Tierein lies the danger, for  it has been ascertained by independent  investigation that, in the case of one'  of thebanks which ���have recently suspended, this section of the act has not  been  complied   with.   The bank' had  issued  notes  in  excess of its nominal  capital,- although it was evident at the  time,  and for some time previously,  that the capital was not 'unimpaired,'  and1' consequently,  the sum  to be redeemed as the first charge upon the assets of the bank, wh'en realized, is considerably larger than the was  contemplated by the f ramers of the act.    I do  not express any opinion respecting the  realization  of the assets,   and I trust  that they may prove sufficiently valuable   to  meet  this first charge   upon  them, in which  case the fund will  not  ultimately be called upon  to bear any  loss; but should-the  assets of the bank  referred to realize less than the sum required to redeem the notes  in  circulation, then the loss will fall  upon the  fund���that is,  upon  the banks generally.  "The situation thus created is, therefore, one that appears to call for careful consideration by the government of  Canada, and I am glad to learn that a  representative of the government has  already been in communication with  members of the Bankers' Association,  with the object of thoroughly inquiring into the matter, and-listening to  any suggestions. The two banking institutions which have suspended payment were comparatively unimportant,  and although the consequences must  be inconvenience and loss to the customers and depositors, which is much  to be regetted, the incident will cause  no disturbance amongst the community  generally. -The only way in which we  can ourselves suffer any-loss thereby  may be as contributors in common  with all the Canadian banks to the  banks circulation redemption fund."  ��� The bountiful harvest in the northwest was referred to by the chairman  as a point of special interest, inasmuch  as if garnered in good condition it  means prosperity to Canada. Passing  on to the mineral wealth of British Columbia he said:  "The produce of the Rossland mines  during 1898 amounted to 116,000 tons  or ore, valued at $2,800,000, as compared with 68,000 tons in 1897, from  which $2,100,000 was obtained,' thus  showing an increase of $700,000, or 33  per cent, in a year. As in every other  field, there are good and bad mines  jn  the Kootenays; but it is interesting to  notice   that whereas in   the first   n'  stance   our   friends   from   across the  line were the pioneers of this district,  "the   Canadians   themselves   have  recently   been   actively    engaged,   and  have invested considerable in the purchase  and  development of rr^mising  properties,   while  I   need  n jt  inform  you  that  there  has also boen a large  expenditure of capital drawn from this  country.    The result has  been a great  growth inithe,p6pulation of  Rossland;  and as the  city has increased, so  has  the business increased, likewise.   This  is not,  however," at the present'time  entirely   to -our   own  advantage���for  whereas in early days we had only one  other   bank  as  a competitor in'Ross-  land, there are now no less  than  five,_  and  business  naturally becomes subdivided; but  if the complete develop  ment of the mines  proves successful���  and many -who are qualified to form an  opinion, appear   now to  have  a little  doubt of this���the business of this city  and district should so largely increase  in the next few years that there may  well be enough for us all.  "As, your are .aware, vre have five  branches established in the mining  districts of British Columbia. We  hope that they may all become profitable and permanent, but it is yetr too  early,to express a decided opinion on  each of these branches. We shall give  them all'a fair trial, and in ,>the event  of disappointment, we shall not hesitate to withdraw before any serious expenditure has been incurred, -as we  have already thought it prudent to do  at Slocan.  " "Finally,Imust refer to the branches  which we - have established in those  northern goldfields. You will "have  noticed'from the report that since our  last meeting .we have opened-branches  in Atlin and Bennett. TheV former  place is the center of a goldfield -which  a year ago excited no little enthusiasm.  I think it is-doubtful whether,the fair  promise of early days has been maintained; but, at the same time, we have  felt that the possibilities of this country are great, and although 'there may  have been" a certain measure of disappointment in the results thus far obtained, we have felt from the-evidence  which has come before us, that'the was  reasonable ground for opening a  branch there. Bennett is a place where  a considerable business is being' transacted: It is a'sort'of half--way'house  to Dawson City, andhas developed into quite a business town. Should the  railway-be ultimately carried'-."tight  through to "Dawson, ,its Limportance  may consequently be diminished, and  we have not been unmindful of this  point in opening our branch there; but  nevertheless, the position has seemed  to us to be worthy of a trial. Passing  through Bennett we come to our- most  distant point in Dawsou City. I need  not tell you that your directors have  experienced'-a time of considerable  anxiety respecting our branch there  since we last met you. owing to the  great conflagration which recently  took place in that city by which our  premises were entirely destroyed. Our  manager has estimated the loss to the  bank as not exceeding $5,000, but I am  not even yet in a position to confirm  those figures.  "You will see that the expenses'of  rebuilding in Dawson City and and of  securing suitable premises both in Atlin and Bennett must be heavy. We  feel that we cannot rely upon steel  vaults or any other substitute for solid  masonry as a protection against  these disastrous conflagrations. There  are no bricks in ^ the country, which  consequently have to be imported at an  enormous cost, of which you will be  able to form a more clear opinion when  I tell you the freight on bricks to Atlin was recently quoted  at $100   per  /     I  >s 4* 4- 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4- 4- 4- 4* 4* 4* 4* 4- 4* 4- 4* 4- 4* 4- 4* 4*4-4* 3?  *  *  *  *  *  The Best Beer In Town Is Made by The  ASK  HARTIKCER ���  &P0RTMANN*  Proprietors. ��� ���  *5*    The Elkhorn Imager Beer contains only pure Malt and Hops.

"The future of Atlip is perhaps still  in the balance, but there is no doubt  whatever about Dawson; the gold is  there, and it has been estimated by a  high authority that this season's production will not be less than $40,000,-  000. This is- a very large total, and we  secure our fair share of the business  attaching to such an industry; so that  if we have been compelled in the first  place to run a risk and thereafter to  incur a heavy expenditure in order to  avoid such risk in the future, we may  hope for an adequate remuneration  return." ������  The.chairman spoke of the loss the  bank has sustained by the death of Mr.  Jeffery Penfold, who spent a lifetime  in the service of the bank, and was for  no less than twenty years manager of  that important branch in Montreal.  In conclusion he formally moved that  the report and balance-sheet be received and adopted.  Mr. J. X. Kingsford seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously.

THE WINNIPEG AND GOLDEN CROWN  Six Feet of Rich Ore Struck on the 300-Foot  Level on the Winnipeg���The Railway Cut a  Big Ledge on the Golden Crown.  This has been a week of big strikes  in Boundary Creek. First it was the  Mother Lode and now at the Winnipeg  and Golden Crown new wealth has  been discovered. The railway is responsible for the new strike on the  Golden Crown, while development  work al the 300-foot level on th* Winnipeg has exposed a large vein of high  grade ore. Two hundred feet from the  main shaft on the Winnipeg a crosscut  ran through a six-foot ledge of solid  ore. This ore is apparently the best that  has been taken from the mine. It averages between S60 and 870. The vein can  be traced on the surface and Mr. Mcintosh the superintendent was anxious to  secure it on the lower level. He has at  last succeeded in doing so but bigger  and richer than it was on the surface.  It is impossible to estimate the ad-  ditioua! value, such a big body of high  grade ore will add to the 'Winnipeg  mine. {The vein is solid and well  defined.  Mr. Mcintosh and Geo. H. Collins of  the Golden Crown were discussing the  big strike on the Winnipeg when Mr.  Collins remarked that the railway  could do nothing for them in the shape  of making new strikes, Mr. Mcintosh  agreed with him. The surface had  been prospected throughly on both properties and there was no. chance of the  railway uncovering any new ledges.  But the most experienced mining men  may be inistakeni The two mining  men proceeded to the railway grade to  be astonished to find the whole face of  the cut on the Golden Crown in solid  pyrrhotite. The.cut is at least 25 feet  wide. The railway passes through the  property to the rear of the shaft house  where Mr. Collins believed there were  no ore bodies.  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.
