The company has been organized to  develop the Review,- the famous Chesaw property owned by McEntire, McDonnell- & Co., of Greenwood. The  capital of. the company is $500,000,  divided into 2,000,000 shares of 25.cents  each.' There :has been placed, in the  treasury 500,000 shares for the development of the property. ;   '.      ���        ,.";  So much has already been written regarding the Review. that people are  generally familiar -with, the merits of  the property. .: V  It is situated near Chesaw, in the  Meyer's' creek district, and on ��� the  American side of the line. A tunnel  runs along the footwall of the ledge for  a distance of 440 feet. At 250 feet firom  the mouth of the tuniiel a crosscut was  run 46 feet, all in quartz. In" this is a  vein' of rich ore two feet -wide, which  gives values in gold from $38 td'$100.  At the face of the tunnel, both walls  are exposed and there . is five fee�� of  solid ore in theface of the tunnel. This  ore will average $26 in gold. Men are  now at work making a winze in the  tunnel at a distance of 340 feet from  its mouth. The tunnel at this dis-r  tance gives a depth of . 135 feet. The  ore is free milling and concentrating.  Messrs. McEntire, McDonnell .& :Co.  have had numerous assays made:;from  the ledge at different points: .' The-, assays were made by assayers in Chesaw  and Greenwood and all gave the most  encouraging : values.' r -Thirty-six . assays gave' au'-average-of;$16 .toithe ton.:  Assays ashigh as $100 have been frequently secured. The Review bears  all the ear-marks of a'hiine. It possesses good values, a well defined vein,  a. good body of ore, can be easily arid  cheaply developed and the.ore can be  treated at alow cost.  has also invested some money as it is  understood that the Carmi up the West  Fork was bonded for him arid his associates. The decision of Messrs.  Brown and Bradley to invest in Boundary Creek properties is of thfc greatest  importance to the district. They are  known,to be energetic mining men with  plenty of capital at their disposal.  MINING   NOTES  Each day brings tidings of new  strikes in the West Fork country. The  latest strike is that made by Messrs.  Gain and J. T. Bedard, of the St.  Charles hotel. They located two properties across the river from Boomerang  creek and called them the Richelieu  and Kamloops. At first they had only  12 inches of ore, but the ledge widened  rapidly and at a depth of 15 feet in the  shaft, which is being sunk on the  ledge, the ore is two and a half feet  wide. . Many assays have' been made  from ��� the shaft and all gave high  values, $156 in gold and silver being an  average value. "Adjoining these two  properties is the Enterprise, owned , by  Roy and Pelori. Values as.high as$208  in gold have been received from the  Enterprise. There are now two - men  at work on the Richelieu and Kamp-  loops. "   "'"  '';v   ';' -   ���>  ��� : ������������ ��� ���  An interesting strike of gold-copper  was made this week on' the Pheasant  claim, in Greenwood 'camp.' Tfye strike  consists.of !an 18-inch vein, struck at a  depth of 30 feet, and which samples be-  tween$60 and $70.in. gold and copper.  The Pheasant adjoins the Snowshoe  on the east, and is owned by W. B.  Rickards of Midway, and A. K. Stuart  of Greenwood, who also own an adjoining fraction, the Alma; They are continuing the present shaft with a view  to ascertaining the extent and nature  of the ore so far exposed.  , Napoleon Wells: a mining man of  Denver, Colo., has returned from a trip  up the-WestlFdrk; ��������� He saw some properties there; that pleased him very  riiuch.'-.'';^    .

Bradley,  of the Bunker Hill;arid Sullivan mine  in the Coeur d'Alenes, were among the  visitors to the city this week. Mr.  Brown owns, the Monarch in Greenwood camp. Under the supervision of  Mr, Enipey, Mr. Brown's mining engineer, there are several men at work on  the Monarch. v  Messrs. Brown and Bradley have decided to: operate extensively in the  Boundary Creek country. They have  plenty of capital themselves and represent capital. AV central office will be  opened in Greenwood and Mr. Brown  will make this his headquarters for  some time.  In addition to the Monarch Mr.  Brown has other valuable mining interests   in   the  district.    Mr.  Bradlev  The Smelter.  Midway was very confident that the  Mother Eode smelter would be located  there and- laughed at the idea that it  would go to Greenwood. The versatile  Grand Forks correspondent, who scatters his .misleading information far  and wide, was also of the same opinion,  and was not slow in expressing it to a  breathless public.f rom Toronto to Vancouver. But, seemingly, Greenwood  had the trump card, and could well  afford-to laugh last.^Cascade Record.  MIDWAY NOTES.  g RECEIVING NEW  t= GOODS   DAILY . .

Mr. Maurer stated that the company  has secured an excellent water power  at the Okanagan Falls, which is now  being developed, and when it is completed the company will be in a position  to furnish power to other properties in  the camp. The company is now erecting a boarding and lodging-house for  the men, a blacksmith ; shop, a residence for the .'superintendent', and an  assay office. The company has now 15  men constancly employed, and; this  number is to be increased to 25 upon  the installation of a six-drill "compressor,, for which' the order has already  been given. Mr. Maurer states that  inside of 12 months the company will  have upwards of 4,000 feet of develod-  ment work done. The company expect to have their mill installed and in  operation in from 18 to 20 months.  Mr. Forbes was equally enthusiastic  when spoken to in reference to the  propeety. He believes the Stemwinder  to be a great property. He says that  they have a regular mountain of ore,  and that the future of the company is  assured. The Oro Fino, in the vicinity  of Fairview camp, he regards as a  good property." A two-stam mill is  now in operation on the property, arid  the ore is netting $10 to the ton. There  is a movement on foot for the reorganization of the company, and Mr.  Forbes says the proper machinery will  shortly be installed upon the property.  Mr. Forbes visited Camp McKinney.  Of the properties there, Cariboo impressed him-as the best and surest investment.���Mail and Empire.  Wn.  Sprott.  Mr.  Eairvtew.  George H.  Maurer returned to  KEITH & KETCHUM  GREENWOOD,   B. C.

HAAS,  C. Scott Galloway, W..M. Secretary  the city yesterday from Fairyiew  camp, where he has been for the past  few weeks' in the interest of the Dominion Consolidated. He was accom  panied by Mr. G. A. Forbes, a Montreal broker, who is prominently identified with the company. Chatting  ���with a Mail an3 Empire reporter,.. Mr.  Maurer stated that he honestly believed  Fairview was destined to be one of the  largest free-milling camps on this continent. Speaking of the Flora,- Western Hill and Virginia, the three claims  recently acquired- by the Dominion  Consolidated, Mr. Maurer stated- that  his visit had convinced him that Capt.  T. H. Trethewey's-report on the properties had been a'rvery conservative  one. Sine the 26th of June, the date  of Mr. Trethewey's report, it had been  proven that the ore bodies are moire extensive and of much higher value than  at that time. "The main ledge," he  said, "has been opened up by crosscuts < and pits, and extends across- the  entire length of the claims, the average width being sbout 12 feet. We  have also uncovered a vein running  parallel to the main ledge and about  200 feet north of it, which is about  seven feet wide, and has ore which is  identical with that of the main ledge.  Tunnels No. 3 and 4, the mouths of  which are located in the Flora, and  which will tiavers the entire length of  the Western Hill, about 1,500 feet, will  have a depth of 470 feet. At this point  they will intersect the shaft, which is  now being driven, and when the necessary upraises are made we will have  blocked out and ready for stoping  enough ore to supply a 300-ton plant  for from four to five years. The ore  is 85 per cent free milling, the average  values at the time.of Mr. Trethewey's  report being about $5.20,' This is  gradually increasing.and it is perfectly  safe to calculate that we will have from  $7 to $8 ore if not much greater value  when the reach the intersection of the  shaft and lowertunnel.  "Our properties," continued Mr.  Maurer, " are so situated that mining  can be carried on for at least 40 years  without the use of hoists or pumps, the  entire ore body being accessible from  the tunnels which are now being driven.  The expense of mining will not exceed SI per ton, and after the installation of the mill the whole cost of mining, milling and treatment will fall  below $1.75 per ton."  Greenwood, B. c.

THAT STREET WORK,  FOLLOWING   IN   LAST   COUNCIL'S  Footsteps���Money Being Excended in Undoing  Last Year's Work ��� Outlying Portions  Neglected���Ac.lon for Damages Against the  '.'. City.' ,.������.'������.���������.  East year $14,000 was borrowed upon  the credit of the city for the purpose of  grading and sidewalking the streets.  Previous to the ratepayers sanctioning  the borrowing of this money,' the  then city engineer prepared and made  public a schedule of the improvements  that   could be carried out for $14,000.  This schedule outlined the grading of  all the streets in the central portion of  the   city.    It   also provided for sidewalks oh all the streets graded.    The  money was secured arid  was expended  on  a few  streets.    Many, streets were  never touched and no sidewalks were  laid.    The majority of. the ratepayers  very properly took strong objection to  the   small   amount .���. of   improvement  secured for the large amount of money.  #They wisely or unwisely decided that a  change was' necessary  and  a change  was made.    The.change is most complete.   Instead ot having- a mayor and  municipal   council,   the mayor is the  .,   maypr and municipal council.  ; He prepares motions and instructs' the council to pass them; he alters the minutes  to suit his own views and acts without  any   sanction'  or   authority   save his  own. : The members of the council  allow things tO��be done that'they know  and   believe are not in the best interests of the city, but they afe done because the mayor says  so.    The aldermen are to blame for neglecting these  responsibilities that came'to them with  their oath  of office   The mayor must  receive any credit or discredit thcit attaches to the work carried out.    He is  the whole council.  It was reasonable to suppose that  after the experience of last year an  effort would be made to improve these  portions of the city that paid their  share of the interest and sinking fund  on the money borrowed and yet received no direct advantage therefrom.  What dp we find? Without the knowledge of the council, without any  authority from the council, work is  commenced on Copper street. Grades  which were given by previous city  engineers aire altered and large blocks  which wwe built under the impression  that the grade was established, are left  highVabove' the"street. Aldermeny in  private, strenuously objected to the  useless expenditure and the damage to  property, but at the meeting of the  council they were silent when they  ought to have asserted themselvas.  Nor is this all. East spring the great  need of water works, for fire protection, was apparent. Credit should be  given where credit is due. The mayor  acted promptly. He borrowed money  at the usual high rate of interest,  water pipes were laid and a good water  system secured, It.was in the interest  of,the city that this work should haye  been done and the mayor, because he  is the whole council, must get all the  credit for doing it. But this .work must  now all be undone because of the folly  connected with the street work. Greenwood street has been cut down for no  apparent reason other than to make  the grade one per cent heavier. The  ' water main is left exposed to winter  frost. It must-be-raised, trenches dug  deeper and again laid. The flume to  carry off the surplus water of Twin  creek, built last year at a considerable  cost, lined and repaired this year at a  considerable cost, is now above. the  street and must be lowered.  Last Saturday over $2,000 was paid  to the city workmen. Previous to this  the loan had been hypothecated to the  tune of some $4,000 for the completion  of the Government street cut and other  work. The iatepayers can figure how  much it will cost to. replace the water  pipes and lower the flume.  There is another probable expenditure. Already steps have been taken  to bring action for damages against  the city. Long-suffering property  owners who are heavy losers because  of unwise municipal work are determined to seek redress in the courts.  ��� That the municipal act which regulates the actions of municipal bodies  affords protection property owners may  be seen from this section, which is  copied from the act:  "Every council shall make to the  owners or occupiers of, or other persons interested in, real properties entered upon, taken, or used by the corporation in the exercise of any of its  powers or injuriously affected by the  exercise of any of its powers, due compensation for any damages (including  cost of fencing when required) necessarily resulting from the exercise  of  ismmm?mmmnmmmmi��  ^iiiiiiiaaiiiiaiiiiiiuaiaiiUiiiiiiiUiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiaiiiiiiiiuaiiiiiiiuiiuuiuui^  El Crepusculo,  Por Larranaga,  Benjamin Franklin,  Manuel Garcia, Alonza  El Ecuadot*  Bock and Africana  La Flor De R Fulton  ^i  IS THE BEST HOTEL IN GREENWOOD.

Q&ountarj> CreeR Ttimtts  PUBLISHED   WEEKLY' BY  -The Boundary Creek Printing, & Publishing  Company, Limited.  Duncan Ross.. ...Editor.  "W. J. Hakbek v : Manager.  SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 9,  1899.  GEMS FROM PAUL JOHNSON.  A mining man cannot afford to flatter or exaggerate, and, as. a mining-  rnan, I tell 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 country is Greenwood.   /,  Wk are going to build the smelter  as near the center as possible.   ,  All ores 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 will '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 tip hill  and haul it down again.  The smelter will be running full  blast next summer.  MR. SHAW'S VISIT.  Greenwood   and   the   surrounding  district  will be 'benefitted by   H.   C.  Shaw's interviews with   the provincial  government.   Just demands are often  neglected  because members  of a government fail to appreciate the  importance   of  a district making   those  demands.    The best way to impress upon  members of a government the  importance of a district is by  inducing them  to make a personal visit.   The eye of  the politician appears to be more easily  influenced than the ear.   In  view of  this, however, the next best thing is to  have, one's   requirements' told   by   a  gentlemen  in whom the government  have confidence.    Mr. Shaw succeeded  in  securing surface rights for mines  that   are   being developed,    He iriter-  ' ested the government in-the matter of  supreme and county court registrars,  and generally he succeeded in making  the government take a keener .interest  in the affairs of this district.  Without reference to politics; the dis-;  trict is to be congratulated upon the  fact that Hon. F. C. Cotton will pay it  a visit this fall. For many years 'the  needs of British Columbia were ridiculed and discouraged by members of  the Dominion parliament. Representatives of farming constituencies in the  east, who .never saw a mountain, glibly  poked fun at the .demands of the people who lived amidst a sea of mountains. . But some members came westward; they saw for themselves and in  parliament- the strong champions of  this province were the men who visited  it. So it is in local affairs. A cabinet  minister who visits Boundary Creek  and notes the wonderful resources and  possibilities must necessarily be in the  future more anxious to do everything  to encourage its development.  A CORRECTION.  THE Times is in receipt of a communication from the Canadian Pacific  Railway company in reference to an  article which appeared two weeks ago  criticizing the rates charged on freight  routed by the Columbia & Western  railway to Grand Forks.1 The company .contradicts the statement that  the rate via railway to Grand Forks is  higher than the irate by rail to Bossburg and thence by wagon. The statements upon which the article was  based were furnished by a Greenwood  merchant. Upon receipt of the letter  we made further inquiries and find  that the statements of the merchant  were occasioned by quotations from a  Canadian Pacific freight agent. Since  then the agent has written to the merchant, acknowledging an over-charge  and a rebate has been prominently forwarded by the company.  We hasten to make the correction as  we have no d?sire of doing the company an injustice. We freely acknowledge' that in operating a new line of  railway, errors are more likely to arise  than on old established lines. Should  we in the future refer to overcharges,  such as appeared by the agent's quotations, we do so more to have mistakes  rectified rather than to find fault with  a conipanj' that is showing great enterprise in building a railway into the  district.  rangements for' the reception of the  members of the Canadian Mining Institute who will visit the district in  October. Every effort should be made  to show the members as many of the  mining properties as is possible in the  limited space at their disposal. The  members of the institute are busy men  seeking information and they will be  more anxious to see mining, properties  than to be wined and dined in the. cities  through which they will pass.  EVERYTHING" is coming to Greenwood this fall. . A railway, a smelter;  electric light, a tramway, a first-class  hotel, politicians���and a brand new  street grade.    Eet us rejoice!  Greenwood is the mining, commercial, smelting, banking center of the  Boundary Creek district.  Greenwood    will   shortly   have'  really first-class hotel of her own.  With this issue the Boundary Creek  Times completes its third year.  THE LEADING MEN'S FURNISHING STORE, GREENWOOD.  Fall and Winter Goods Arriving Daily in Large Shipments.

CHURCH DEDICATION  NEW METHODIST CHURCH OPENED,  BOLSTER'S CAMPAIGN.  Three Sservices on Sunday Last���Dedication  Sermon Preached by .Rev.-J. A. Wood���  Elouuent Address by Rev. R. W. Trotter-  Other Speakers���Good Choir Singing���A  Handsome Collection.  The opening- services in the Methodist church on  Sunday were a grand  success.  The program, as printed, was  fully carried out.     The addresses were  strong-  presentations of gospel, truth  and   were   intensely   practical.      Mr.  Bennest:had charge of  the choir and  Mrs.  Evans   presided   at   the'organ;  they were supported by a well trained  choir.      The   singing-   was   excellent.  The new church just rang- with  g-ood  rousing- music.     Standard hymns  had  . been: chosen ' for, congregational singing-,  and people of all,denominations  joined heartily so  that the new church  just rang- with a grand chorus of voices.  Special music by the choir, solos, duets,  trios and quartettes were highly appreciated, and  added much  to the attractiveness  and value of  the services of  the day.  At the morning service the Rev. J.  A. "Wood, chairman of Kootenay district; speaking from the-text, "The  Word of God is True," made a  masterly presentation of the authority  of the bible. He placed before the congregation the internal evidence of the  inspirations of the word of God. He  called attention to the fulfillment of  prophecy as a proof of the divine  origin of the "scriptures and showed  that the investigations of scientific  men confirmed the statements of holy  writ.  Having shown that hostility to the  word of God, was often the result of a  lack of sympathy with its teachings.  The preacher made a strong appeal to  his hearers to. see.that their lives were  put in harmony with the teachings of  the inspired book.  Rev.  R.   W.  Trotter, in the opening  : address in the afternoon, made an ex-  ��� cellent talk on  "How to Have a I/ive  Church."  , Rev. D. A..Stuart in a well thought  out address, pictured the work of  evangelization going on in the world,  and illustrated his statements very  beautifully by referring to the magnificent work done in widening and  levelling the highway, in ancient days,  when the king was about to pass  through the country, and also by reference to the work going on in our own  country in making a road for. the iron  horse- of commerce through the mountains and across the valleys.  Mr. Wood in a closing address congratulated the congregation on having  such a Splendid place for worship, and  gave some" reminesences of the day of  preaching in the log school house.  The ushers had a busy time finding  seats for the large number of people  who attended the evening service. The  big eong regation were well repaid for  any special effort they made to fill the  new church. The choir singing was  excellent. The sermon of Rev. R. W.  Trotter was exceptional in its originality and the eloquence with which it  was delivered. He strongly condemned  the church for thundering against  effects, and doing not to eradicate the  causes. He'pleaded for the application  of more business principles in the  work of the church. Business men  had kept pace with the evolution that  time had brought and had co-operated.  He pointed to.the success of trusts and  big companies and also to the fact that  competition was still rife among denominations, entailing: additional expenditure and less profit in christian  work. He pleaded for co-operation in  church work, for greater and more  united efforts to bring about such reforms as would tend to alleviate those  conditions that engendered vice. The  sermon teemed with apt illustrations  and clever epigramatic sentences. His  peroration was magnificent in its  lanugage and eloquent delivery.  After the sermon, the people were  asked by the Rev. Balderston to get  down to earth again and they did so to  the tune of $117. This money will go  to pay off a portion of the church's  debt which is rapidly decreasing.  To Wake Up the People for Spokane's Big Exposition.  Manager Herbert Bolster, of.the Spokane, industrial exposition, will leave  Saturday morning for Rossland and  Nelson, where he goes on a missionary  trip in behalf of the big fair. This is  the first journey he has made out of  the city for the purpose, but he has  several now in mind and hopes to come  in touch with the patrons of the exposition in the next few weeks by visiting the surrounding tows.  Manager Bolster will return Tuesday  evening and Thursday will go to. the  Cceur d'Alene country with . the excursion. While there he will see that  the heralds and advertising matter are  properly distributed.  The Spokane Elks will have to look  well" to themselves if they expect all  the honors in the great parade they are  planning. John Cassidy, formerly of  this city, but now conducting a theater  at Rossland, has written to-Manager  Bolster, that the Rossland Elks will  send down a float for the parade that  will out-do anything that the Spokane  lodge will have in line���and when the  Rossland Elks go after anything they  usually get it. It will be' remembered  that the team from Rossland won the  big cake in- the Cakewalk at the exposition last year.  The management of the exposition  has received a letter from Perry Van  Horn,, manager of the Canton band,  which is to play at the exposition, stating that he is negotiating with L,eo  Zimmerman, the world's greatest trombone player, and that he may bring  this player with him when :the band  comes to Spokane. Zimmerman was  formerly with the Grand Army band  but is now playing with the Innis band  in Atlanta  City.������Spokane Chronicle.  SIMILKAMEEN PROPERTIES,  Reported Purchase by Marcus Daly of Anaconda  Fame.  J. F.; Bledsoe, superintendent of the  Fairview Corporation's mining properties, is the authority for the statement that agents of Marcus Daly  have been purchasing heavily in. the  Smilkanieen.    Mr.Bledsoe says:  "Two mining engineers urged me recently to keep a secret in connection  with their identity until they consummated certain deals.1 Their business  has been done and their mission is a  secret no longer. The mining engineers were agents of Marcus Daly, who  sold the Anaconda mines recently for  $19,000,000, and.who has been looking  for another Anaconda mine. These  men represented themselves as miners  looking about for. cheap copper-gold  claims. They took different routes,  and' in two weeks had bought every  copper claim in the Okanagan country,  comparatively for a song. Among the  purchases was Copper Mountain, in  Smilkameen county, a vast quarry of  copper-gold ore, and it is the intention  of Mr. Daly to carry on operations  there on his usual gigantic scale.  Since the news leaked out an army, of  prospectors have spread over the district, and the recorder finds great difficulty in accommodating prospectors  registering new finds."

It is not so long ago  that the Forkers were claiming Burnt  Basin and Christina claims, to say  nothing of those of Deadwood camp,  Greenwood camp and others,as "Grand  Forks mines." Grand Forks is a good  town, but every camp from Gladstone  to Penticton is not tributary to it.���  Cascade Record.  Hotel International and Other Buildings were  Eestroyed Friday Morning.  About 9 o'clock Friday morning fire  broke out in the Hotel International,  Fort Steele, which was totally destroyed  together with the store of T. Armstrong, the .

So   startling were  the  rumors  connected with the arrests  of  certain ���individuals charged with arson that most  newspaders refrained from  publishing  anything   more   than   briefest reports.  ',;   Cameron and Mullen, the  men  placed  under   arrest,   came   up   for   trial   at  Columbia on  Saturday before Justices  of the Peace  Rouchesson  of  Cascade,  , and Forrest  of  Gladstone.   J. P. McLeod   of   Midway,   appeared   for   the  crown,    and    Messrs.    Morrison   and  Miller of Grand Forks, represented the  prisoners.    The   evidence was  of  the  most startling nature.    The   incidents  leadingfUp to the arrests are   more  exciting   than   any   found   in   the sensational   detective   stories   of   the  day.  Early in July the Clarendon and Inter*  national hotels in Greenwood were destroyed by fire.    E. Escalet who ran a  first-class restaurant in the Clarendon,  and   D. ,W.  Morgan,, the proprietor  of  the Clarendon, then reopened the Hotel  Columbia in Columbia.    The hotel was  running  only   a-week when it was  destroyed by fire and some of the guests  had   narrow   escapes.    A   short   time  afterwards  the   Pacific   and  Windsor  hotels in   Greenwood  were destroyed.  In all cases there were strong suspicions  that the fires were of incendiary origin.  This was particularly true of the Hotel  Columbia.     The   Columbia   Townsite  company,   who   owned   the   building,  were ffrst  of the opinion   that it was  useless attempting to do anything, but  they  were  afterwards induced to engage Pinkerton   detectives.    The   detectives started  at first on "a   wrong  clue. Then Royce, one of the witnesses  for the crown, told the story of thecon-  spiracy to one of the losers by the fire  in   Greenwood.    The   detectives  soon  had Robert Cameron arrested  for having set the Hotel Columbia on fire and  Chas.   Mullen,  for  conspiracy, in connection therewith.  It may be here stated that while  clearing away thedebrision the Pacific  hotel last week, the instrument used in  setting the building; was found. It  consisted of *a piece of wire,around one  end of which was wound a ball of  twine. This was saturated with coal  oil. The odor of oil was very strong,  even after lying in the ruins for four  weeks.   *  Now for the evidence and the persons  implicated. The first was Royce. He  was a bartender in Greenwood and  went to Grand Forks. He was hard  up. He ran across Chas. Mullen whom  he knew in Rossland and elsewhere.  In his evidence Royce stated that Mullen had said to him: "You're in hard  luck. I know a way you can make a  few hundred dollars���by burning the  Hotel Columbia. I am under obligations to John Manly, manager of the  Yale hotel. Perhaps you are desperate  enough to do it." Royce talked with  Cameron about the matter and decided  to try and get hold of the money without doing the job. On Friday before  the fire, Mullen procured a fuse and a  gallon of alcohol and left them behind  the clerk's desk in the Yale.. At 7 p.  m., the same day' Royce asked Mullen  for the money. Mullen went over to  the Victoria hotel and came back with  $130, which Royce took and afterwards  returned, promising that the job would  be done that night. Mullen said that  by the time it was done he wouid have  the full amount, $250. Royce took the  fuse and alcohol from , behind the  , clerk's desk. The only person present  at the time was John Manly.  Royce and Cameron hired a team and  drove to the woods a mile above Columbia. They experimented with the  fuse and found it would not work.  Royce threw the fuse away and returned to Grand . Forks. Royce saw  Mullen and told him the thing was impossible���the building was full of people. Mullen said a room should be  saturated with alcohol and a short  lighted candle left to burn low. Saturday Royce and Cameron demanded  $500. Mullen said his principals would  stand only $250. Royce told the whole  circumstances to John "Watson, bartender at the Yale, and left Grand  Forks Saturday before the fire. "Watson, the bartender referred to, gave evidence, and corroborated the statements  Royce, and also stated that in the  morning Cameron was broke. In the  afternoon Cameron, John Manly and  Mullen were at the bar. Cameron  treated and produced a roll of bills.  Cameron, one of the accused, has  made a statement in writing. In the  statement he says he met Mullen after  Royce left. Mullen hired him to do the  job. Cameron arranged with athird  party to do the actual burning and on  Sunday night the work was done. On  Tuesday following Mullen paid him  $200 for the work. Cameron gave half  of this to his accomplice., He stated  that the money displayed in the Yale  hotet bar room was the money paid  him by Mullen.  Escalet gave evidence to the effect  that a day or |two before the fire Mullen had told him .that he was a fool to  start in Columbia and threatened that  he would leave it in his bare feet.  The trial was adjourned- until Frir  day.' John A. Manly has left Grand  Forks and is on the other side.  The Provincial Gazette.

J. J. MILLER  Greenwood, Julv 22,1899. THE   BOUNDARY    CREEK   TIMES.  SURFACE RIGHTS.  CROWN GRANTS HAVE BEEN ISSUED  H. C. Shaw's Mission to the Capital���The  Question of Surface Rights of Mineral  Claims Decided���Other Matters Relating to  the District.  H. C. Shaw, of the firm of Hallett &  Shaw, returned last Friday after spending-   four   weeks   on   the   coast.'    Mr.  Shaw went to the capital in connection  with   several   matters   in   which    his  clients were interested. He interviewed  members    of   the   government    who  granted   many of   his requests.    The  most important   question   Mr.   Shaw  had   to deal with was the issuing of  crown   grants   for  sttrface   rights   of  mineral claims.   The government held  that it   had not the power   to grant  crown grants for surface rights within  the railway reserve,  made in connection   with act giving 20,000 acres of  land-per mile for the construction  of a  railway between Robson  and Penticton.'It will  be remembered that this  reserve was placed on  all  unoccupied  land ' between  Keremeos  and  Robson  some two years ago. Although the Canadian Pacific Railway company had de-  .   cided to take the cash subsidy in lieu of  land grant, and although' the time in  which the railway had to be constructed  in order to earn the land grant has expired, the reserve remains.   It is stated  that the reason for this is  to give the  Canadian Pacific Railway company an  opportunity to pick and choose in this  vast area such lands as were earned by  reason of the construction  of the railway between Rossland' and Trail.  ��� Mr.   Shaw   combatted   the  position  taken'' by   the government   and they  finally agreed  to issue crown. grants  for  surface  rights of mineral claims  located   prior   to   the   reserve.    Then  came the question-of surface rights of  mineral  claims located subsequent to  the reserve.    Mr. Shaw held  that the  railway company had no  vested  right  in   the land  until they  had actually  made   their   selection.     The   government finally  agreed to this view and  decided to issue crown grants for all  claims, at a rate of $5 per acre.  Mr. Shaw urged upon the government the necessity for the appointment of, county and supreme court  ' registrars in the city. The government  appreciated the fact that such offices  must be created within a very short  time,- but action will be deferred until  Hon. Mr. Cotton visits the district and  decides upon the most suitable point.  The government, at Mr. Shaw's request, also decided to give the -mining  recorder at Midway the powers of gold  commissioner, thus obviating trips to  Fairview,when it is necessary to transact business with that officer. The  government also decided that Gold  Commissioner Eambley should come  . here to adjudicate upon the contested  applications for water records.  Mr. Shaw, aiso interviewed the gov-  : ernment about the construction of a  school building in the city. They  promised to push- the construction of  the two-roomed building already under  way. This building can be easily enlarged to a four-roomed building-V  Mr. Shaw did not care to discuss the  political' situation. He ; was asked  about Joe Martin: ,'He is quite well,  thank' ypu," was -the laughing'reply  and the Times' representative withdrew. ..'���'���".-''��� ��� .     ;1  I did say, and attached importance to,  are not reported at all; things reported,  in nearly every case, are riot as I said  them. But I am told that this was only  what was to be expected from the Colonist, especially in its present position,  for the party to whom I am indebted  for Sunday's issue tells me the paper  has been full of editorials, ��� lately,  based on information sent from the  same authoritive and reliable source,as  to some "caucus" meeting held a short  time ago in Vancouver, at which it was  said I was present. Here, again, the  representative is living up to his reputation, for, if there was such a meeting (which I doubt), I knew nothing  whatever about it, and I was certainly not at it.  " As the Colonist appears to be anxious  to know how I stand in regard to the  present government, I will tell it. My  position is exceedingly simple. If the  government makes any attempt to repeal the eight-hour or alien labor legislation, of last session, I shall oppose  them. If they leave that legislation  alone, and introduce further legislation, which I can approve, I shall support them. That position may not suit  the Colonist, but I think it will suit  the vast majority of my constituents.  The Colonist should know that we  fought too many years in this province  lo rid it of the government (largely in  their own interests), of a small Victoria  oligarchy, for us now to take any  measures to get that oligarchy quickly  back into power again.

The following strong disclaimer, by  Mr. Macpherson, M. Pi P.,of the sentiments attributed to him in a "Colonist" interview, on Sunday, appears in  this morning's News-Advertiser:  Sir���-Some time ago," the dispatches  sent fr.om Vancouver to several eastern  Canadian newspapers were so characterised by falsehood and exaggeration;  that even the Colonist, which can do  quite a little in that line itself .thought  it necessary to write an editoiialon the  subject. In the course of the editorial,  the representative of the eastern papers  was somewhat severely handled, and  spoken of as a "mendacious liar," and  soon. The appropriateness of the description struck everybody, and, when  it became known that the Colonist, all  unwittingly, had been describing its  own representative, men adhered more,  tenaciously ' than ever to the opinion  that the description was an accurate  one; that the editor, for once, at any  rate, had struck the nail on the head.  The above episode was strikingly recalled to my mind, today, when I saw  Sunday's Colonist, containing what  purports to be an interview with me.  I did not know the "mendacious liar,"  before, in the flesh. I know him now,  and I think I shall probably keep him  at a distance from me, in future. For  wilful misrepresentation in nearly  every particular, I would be willing to  back that interview against anything  of the kind I ever saw before.    Things  c-   New Mail Service.  The new mail service betweeen the  Dominion and this country is useful in  other respects than the carriage of  mail matter. While for the present the  rate of speed is not equal to that of the  fastest of the "ocean greyhounds"  the vessels employed are of a speedy,  serviceoble,seaworthy and particularly  comfortable class. It is for many reasons right that'Canada should have a  mail service distinctly her own, and  that Bristol has been made the terminal point will clearly mark out the  Royal Canadian mail route from the  other trans-atlantic services sailing  from Suthampton, Eondon, Liverpool,  Glasgow and Hull. As a passenger  service the new mail line is certain to'  increase in popularity and prestige. It  has a reputation for catering well for  its passengers, and the second-class arrangements are just what are required  to meet the wants of the most desirable  class of emigrants. The second-class  passengers are berthed in two, three or  four-roomed cabins, have a liberal  dietary and the use of all the conveniences possible on board ship. The fare  is only ��6,ot one pound more than that  for a steerage passage.  To trans-atlantic visitors returning  home there is much to commend Bristol as a point of departure. Within  easy radius are many places well worth  visiting. Bristol itself is one of the  most interesting of English' historic  towns, and passengers desiring the  pleasantest.of surroundings may await  departure at Clifton, one of the most  beautiful spots in England.     - <���  As an instance of the importance of  having a distinctive mail service, attention may Vbe called to the colony  of Queensland. About twenty years  ago the government of; Queensland determined to have a mail service of its  own. At that time the mails were carried by the P. & O. and Orient services  by way. of the Suez Canal, and the  Sydney, New Zeland, San Francisco  and New York mail route. The Queensland government, in spite of great opposition, entered into a contract for  eight years with the British India company for a four-weekly line of first-  class steamers to Queensland ports,  with its terminus in Brisbane. As a  mail route the new service was much  slower than the others, but the effect  on Queensland was very marked. It  was as an emigrant service, however,  that the British India line to Queensland proved most valuable, and it is  probable that it is in this respect the  Elder-Dempster line from Bristol will  be principally valuable to Canada.���B.  C. Review.  Grand Forks View.  The Mother Eode smelter did not go  to Midway but it did go to Greenwood.  It is no'use to discuss whys and wherefores at this juncture, Greenwood gets  the smelter and she deserves it through  her pluck and enterprise. The Midway  people are altogether too slow to trot in  the same class with the Greenwood  people. They, were afraid the smelter  fumes would injure their beans, peas  and roasting ear patches. The Greenwood people evidently do not object to  a little smelter smoke, for the new  plant is to be almost right in town, the  site chosen being between Greenwood  and the surburban hamlet of Anaconda.���Miner.

'  Greenwood is forging ahead these  days. Contractor Smith and all other  contractors in the city are searching  for carpenters and are unable to secure  all the men wanted to construct the  numerous buildings that are wanted in  a hurry. Hotels and other business  houses are being erected. Madden &  Co. are erecting a two story hotel on  their old site. They expect to have it  completed by October 1st. Men are at  work excavating for Graham & Parry's  big three-story hotel. W. S. Fletcher's  , block has been "Started. It will contain  a large hall that can be used for a  theatre or music hall. Other buildings  are also being constructed.  Two big hotels built during the summer were leased this week. J. W.  Powell's fiest-class hotel has-been  leased by J. P. Armstrong of Spokane.  Mr. Armstrong is one of the most  popular and efficient hotel men in the  west. He closed the lease on Tuesday  and-left immediately for Toronto,, accompanied by Mrs. Armstrong., !T,liey  ,will there(purchase the furniture necessary to furnish the big hotel.' Mff  Armstrong expects to have the Iceland  running,within 50 days. _���������'���  - Mr. McLVellan, the well known hotel  man of Trail.has leased John Keough's  three-story hotel on Government street.  He will have the place furnished as  quickly as possible. V  GREENWOOD  AND   DISTRICT.  CASCADE WATER POWER CO.  A Big Undertaking Which  Is to Commence  Work at Once.  - Superintendent William Anderson,  of the Cascade Water,Power and Light  company, owning the 'power on the  Kettle river, at Cascade City, has received orders by cable from the head  office in London to let a contract at  once for clearing the right of way for  the pole line from Phoenix, in Greenwood camp, to Cascade, a distance of  about 25 miles." A large part of the  distance is open country, but about five  miles' is quite heavily timbered. He  has now called for tenders to clear  this.     ' . ���' '..'���'.-  Mr. Anderson has also been arranging to begin work at once on the several  parts of the big plant to be put in for  utilizing the energy of the Cascades.  This will include finishing the 300-foot  dam, work on which was started last  fall, building the flume, 600 feet of  which 's to be a tunnel through solid  rock, building the power house and  putting in the pole line. The latter  will cost about $3,000 per mile, and the  expenditures will amount to many  thousands of dollars. Plans have been  prepared arid builders are figuring on a  residence for the use of Mr. Anderson  and his family. Foreman Simmons,  who has been spending his vacation at  Bracebridge, Ont., "as been telegraphed for, and it is apparent that the  several parts of the work will soon be  in full blast. It is understood that the  6,000-horse power being developed here  is all; or nearly all, spoken for by, .the  Boundary mines, which are npyf'being  fast developed. The near approach to  completion of the Robson-Penticton  branch of the Columbia & Western railway is stimulating development in no  small degree, as owners of promising  properties know they can then get  their ores to market quickly and inexpensively.  A FATAL ACCIDENT.  David Condon Meets His Death In the Vancouver Mine.  . David Condon was instantly killed  at the Vancouver mine, in Kimberly  camp, on Saturday last. Condon and  W. Robinson were sinking the shaft  on the Vancouver, which is owned by  J. W. Nelson and James Sutherland.  He had been working in the bottom of  the shaft, 35 feet from the surface and  had ignited the fuse for a round of  shots. He ascended the ladder to the  top and missed the last round. He fell  backwards to the bottom just before  the shots went off. It is supposed that  the deceased was killed by the fall.  Provincial Police Officer Cunningham  went up to make inquiries into the  fatal accident. No inquest was held  and the remains were interred in the  Greenwood cemetery. David Condon  was a native of Iowa and about 40  years of age. He had rio relatives in  this country.  L. Cousins, of Camp McKinney, was  in the city this week.  . Ross Thompson  of Rossland was in  the city this week.  Geo. R. Naden is away to Keremeos  where he has heavy property interests.  J. B. Donald, of the Columbia Telephone, company, was in the city this  week.  John McCafferty, the well known  min ing man, returned from Kere meos  this week.  A meeting of the Greenwood board of  trade is to be held in Rendell hall, this  (Friday) evening. ���'���'  H. T. Wilgress returned on Thursday from Rossland where he met Geo.  McL. Brown and other C. P. R. magnates.  J. P. McLeod, of Midway, was in the  city on Thursday, en; route to Columbia  where he is representing the crown in  the arson trial.  R. Roberts, the Rossland mining  engineer, left for the West Fork country this week to develop a property in  which he is interested.  ���J. P. Mclntyre.representiiig' the Gordon company, limited, ��� wholesale  clotheirs of Vancouver, paid the city a  business visit this week.  The Kitty W. Gold Mining company,  with a capital of $100,000, and the Josie  Copper company,with a capital of $100,-  000, have been incorporated. ; Both  'have their head office in Grand Forks.  The firemen gave a ball in George's  new block on Monday evening. There  was a large attendance. The Greenwood fire department 'band gave a  pleasing concert before the dancing began.  Owing- to the prolonged rains the  directors of the Kamloops Agricultural  association have decided to postpone  the exhibition until October 11, 12 and  12. The original dates were Sept. 20,  21 and 22.  A Sutton, of Victoria, spent .several  days in the city this week. Mr. Sutton  was for some time geological professor  in the Michigan state college. He examined some Camp McKinney properties for Victoria parties.  Several business men who failed to  take out their license for the current  term were up before Police Magistrate  Hallett this week. They all paid the  costs of the case and were instructed to  pay the licenses without delay;  A. K. Stuart, collector of inland revenue, has resigned his position. The  office will be taken by Hugh Mc-  Cutcheon, who is now stationed at  Naksup. It is understood that Mr. Mc-  Cutcheon will also be made a customs  officer.  Ralph Smailes returned on Tuesday  from "Winnipeg. He purchased the  most modern heating plant for the  Rendell block. Mr. Smailes was astonished to find that the city council  had been kind enough to give the block  an elevation during his absence.  C. ,E. Dickenson, representing R. R.  Rikett & Co., and Tudor A. Fiedmann,  left on Tuesday for Grand Forks after  spending several days in the' city.  They succeeded in straightening out  all difficulties connected with the  policies on buildings recently destroyed  by fire.  J. D. Sword, agent for the James  Cooper Manufacturing company of  Montreal, was in the city for several  days last week. Mr. Sword is always  around where big plants are required  and it is reported that he was negotiating to secure the contract for installing  the Mother Lode smelter plant.    .  Keith & Ketchum, the city collector's  office, was crowded during the latter  days of last week. Many of the taxpayers availed themselves of the rebate  allowed to August 31, and paid their  taxes before that date. Mr. Ketchum  reports that over $7,000 has already  been paid, whieh is over 50 per cent, of  the total taxes.  Is one of the meanest things we know of, barring the disposition,  of some people for digging holes at the public expense.    To awake  up in the night time and find your bed clothing too scant, and no  extra ones around to help you out, is a very unenviable position,  lowever, to  We have on hand the largest stock of Blankets and Comforters in  the district, at prices to suit the size of any pile,   We bought them  before the rise and are selling them at rock^bottom prices,   If we"  had half as much  As the Gity Authorities and did not know how to spend it, we  would make a public distribution, Unfortunately, however, we  must foot our own bills, You may have to do some climbihg  to get to us, but it will pay you, Blankets are good and prices are  right, irrespective of street gradrs.  H. N. Boss, of Beaverton, was in the  city this week.  W. Lenine, who is superintending  the work on the Carmi, was in the city  this week.  T. Liilie.a Nelson boot and shoe merchant, was in the city this week sizing  up the situation with a view to engaging in business here.  The Corbin telegraph line has been  completed to Curlew creek and will  reach. Greenwood in about ten days.  As soon.as the the wires are strung the  company, will be. ready to transmit  messages to all points. , ��� ,  J. C. Haas has succeeded in floating  a company to acquire the Golconda  group. Rufus Pope, M. P., is at the  head of the concern. As the Golconda  group is among the most promising  in the district, and Mr. Pope has already shown his . ability to float suc-  cessfuly companies to develop Boundary Creek properties, the new organization is sure to succeed.

From Cameron's confession it  is learnel tnat his accomplice, and the  individual who started the Columbia  hotel fire, was a young man named  Stubbs who lived in Greenwood last  winter. Stubbs was ordered to leave  the city by the local police.  Already the committee in charge  have commenced the work of collecting  ores for the Spokane Fruit Fair. Their  work is materially aided by mine-  owners sending in choice specimens  from their mines. Among the first  specimens sent to the committee is a  choice block of ore from the Sunset  mine. This specimen is a rich piece of  gold-copper ore taken from a big ledge.  The specimen looks well, has good  values and is a valuable contribution  to the Boundary Creek district.  Business Changes.  The Clarendon Hotel company has  purchased the lease held by M. E.  Frazee, on the store adjoining the  hotel. This store will turned into a  first class restaurant. Men are already  at work raising both buildings to street  grade. >  Mr. Frazee has leased the corner  store in Robert Wood's new block, at  the corner of Deadwood and Government streets. He intends continuing  in the bakery business, and the large  basement underneath the store will be  fitted with the best modern bake ovans.  Transfers.  c- . August 31.

Deepest Shaft in Canada.  The !Le Roi mine is about to enter an  era of the most extensive development  work in its history. The plant is to be  largely increased and 2,500-foot shaft  started. The management of the I*e  Roi has notified the representatives of  the various machinery manufacturers  that tenders will be received forthwith  for a complete new power ��plant, with  capacity of 60 drills, to be installed as  soon as possible. This move on the  part of the Le Roi people means that  the development of the mine along the  lines proposed by Superintendent Carlyle and accepted by the directors will  begin without much delay. The new  plan provides for a vertical shaft 2,500  feet deep. This shaft, which will cut  the main vein at a depth of about 1,-  000 feet, will be the largest and deepest  shaft   in   Canada.
