Vol I,  GREENWOOD CITY/ B,C��� SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 6, 1896.  No, 3.  THE   SKYLARK.  Work  on   the   Skylark   is   making-   rapid  headway,   the  breakage   of  the  whym   notwithstanding-.     The   "whip"  which was rigged immediately after the   mishap  occurred,  thanks to the intelligence of '.** Old .���..Jerry,"  makes   a  very  fair  substitute  pending-  the  arrival  of  the  new  casting-.  Jerry,is a horse 24 years of ag-e ; he was formerly employed  as a draught animal, hauling-  ore  from,  a  mine  at  Butte.  Four years ago he became the property of  Mr.   Barker, the  foreman at the Skylark, who has since: trained him to  perform his present duty.    It is most interesting- to  watch the  old horse at work ; he requires no attention or word of command to be g-iven.    When the gong- sounds, signifying- that  the bucket is ready to be hoisted, the horse starts, walks to  the end of the track, steps  but  of  the  traces   and  returns  slowly, holding the bucket from.going too  rapidly Over-the  guides." If, as sometimes   happens,   he   does   not  jmll' the  bucket sufficiently far, and thus necessitate a lift on  to the  truck, his master folds his arms, and the horse seeing what  is required of him, goes forward.    All   the   appliances now  being ttsed at the   Skylark   are  labor-saving   and  novel in,  this district.    The water and ore .buckets, "particularly., are  constructed on a plan .which renders^^ujhpingvan easy task.  Though generally used about the mines of  Montana, these  buckets are rarely seen iii  British   Columbia,   in  fact they���,  have not yet been introduced into Colorado.  There are only three men now. employed on the Skylark,  but during the short time���barely six weeks���since they  commenced work* they have accomplished a great deal.  When the whym wa's placed in position a larg*e mass of  rock had to be blasted out to clear a pathway for,the horse.  This rock was stained with iron on the surface, but after a  few tons had been removed the rock began to show indications of copper, and some of the pieces on the dump are impregnated with copper and iron pyrites. From this it is  not at all improbable that a big low grade copper deposit  lies almost alongside of the smaller vein of high-grade silver-gold ore on which hitherto *the Skylark has based its  reputation to be considered a mine. At present a drift is  being driven from the foot of the shaft to cross-cut the  ledge. The men are not now working in ore, but it is expected that within a week or so the vein will be struck. The  old working has been put into excellent shape, and -the  shaft, which is planked over the timbers for a distance  down, has a workmanlike appearance. The son of Mr.  Reuger, the owner of the mine, is expected to arrive shortly  from Butte to superintend the work. Meanwhile Mr. Barker, the foreman, is to be congratulated on the showing he  has been able to make in so short a time.  THE   COMBINATION.  The Times of the 12th inst. contained a paragraph relating to the high value of ore taken from the Combination,  Providence camp. This report was based on the showing-  of the assayer's certificate in Mr. Bartholomew's possession..  Since the paragraph appeared The Times has received,  several intimations that the Combination was a " wild-cat."  On Monday last our representative visited the claim.  The only work done, so far, is a shaft of 35 feet. On. the  dump there are about three tons of eyidently high-grade  rock, many pieces containing very beautiful specimens of  nativefsilver. The ore contains galena, iron and copper  sulphites, black sulphtirets of silver, and is said to carry  free gold. In the shaft the pay streak from whence this  rich rock comes is easily distinguished ; it commences two  feet from the  surface,   a  small  thin  vein,   and  gradually  widens with depth, till at the foot of the shaft  it measures  between 11 and 12 inches.    A piece of rock  which, our  representative knocked off from the ledge  at  the  foot  of  the  shaft contained native silver.   The vein is a true fissure, in  a cyanite and slate formation.    The  foot-wall,   which. was  found near the surface, pitches at an angle of about 25  degrees, while the pitch of the hanging wall  is  45.    Between  the walls and the ledge there is a "gouge "  of  decomposed  matter which is said to assay very,,high.    This has all been  carefully saved.    Within the last week or so the vein (about  two feet in width) running with the pay-chute has changed  somewhat in character,   and  green-chloride   and  peroxide  has come in.,   The supposition is that a big body of  copper  lies beneath, and very probably the ore, which  is now free-  ; millings will turn base as has been this case in so  many instances here.    Besides the discovery vein there are several  big eroppings traceable in .different parts   of   the  claim   of  rose-colored quartz.    There is ah admirable tunnel  site on  the south and east ends of the Combination at an elevation  of over 400 feet above the base of the mountain ; and if the  necessa^ capital can  be  raised,   operations  will   te commenced this fall at a point some 25  feet  above  the  creek,  with the possibility of  cutting',, through  the  second  ledge  supposed to exist.    We purposely make no report of  the assay values as given by Mr.  Bartholomew,   on   the  grounds  that this, article was written on  the   understanding*  that it  should contain nothing but what could be  verified  on  personal observation by any visitor to the claim.  THE   MINERAL   EXHIBITION.  Thanks to Mr. Haas' energy   and  the  co-operation  of  a  few others,   a  fairly  representative  exhibit  of  Boundary  Creek ores will be on view at the Spokane Fruit Fair. Samples of rock from the following claims are to be   shipped to  Marcus to-day : From Greenwood camp���Stemwinder, Gold  Drop, Rawhide, Snowshoe, Knob Hill, Standard and Brooklyn ; from Welling-ton camp���Winnipeg, Golden Crown and  Calumet ; from Summit camp���EJmma   and   R.   Bell ; from  White's camp���City of Paris, Lincoln, Jack of Spades, Lexington, Excelsior and No. 7 ; from Skylark camp���Skylark,  Crescent, Canadian and Tip Top ';���: from Long Lake camp���  Jewel and Denoro Grande ; from Smith's camp���Non Such,  Last Chance, Republic, Great Hesper, Boundary   Falls and  Golconda ;    from  Deadwood  camp���Great  Hopes,   Hidden  Treasure, Gold Bug, Ira Lenora and  Mother  Lode;   from  Copper camp���Copper ; from  Graham's  camp���Texas and  Bruce ; Providence camp���Combination   and  D.A.    About  a hundred pounds of  coal  from  Rock   Creek  will  also  be  placed on exhibition.    It is to be regretted   that  to  the indifference of many  claim owners   is   attributable   a  much  more limited collection being sent to Spokane for exhibition  purposes than might otherwise well have been the case.  To  some men, unless the possibility of a direct personal gain is  clear, no action appears desirable.    It is unfortunate that a  way of preventing* this class from  sharing* in   the  general  g-ood certain to accrue from so efficient a  plan  of  advertising- the district, is not devisable.  ^^  Returns from a fifty pound sample of ore from two claims  ���the Le Roi and the Blueing, on Meyers' creek���submitted  for analysis to the  Tacoma  Smelting & Refining Co., have  just been received, the former claim running $13.40 for all  values, and the Latter $24. The sample sent to the smelter  was taken from surface eroppings. There is 16 feet of solid  ore on the Le Roi and 11 feet on the Blueing. Both claims  are owned by Sam Haj-es, formerly of Rossland. There  are between 50 and 60 men now working on Meyer's creek  and some of the showings there are remarkable. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  DISTRICT NEWS.  Mr.   Joseph   Frank  has  rented  Le-  quiine & Powers' saw-mill at  Midway.  A dance is.to be g-iven at the Boundary Falls Hotel on the 1st  of  October.  During- the coming- week enumeration  -returns  will be   made  office in--the district.  at   every  post-  in  One of the largest bears yet shot  the.district fell a victim to Mr. Keller's  prowess this week. The animal was  killed near the Mother Lode claim.  Mr. Angus K. Stuart, ag-ent of the  Midway Townsite Company, left for  Montreal by Friday's stage via Rossland. Mr. Stuart will probably away  for about three weeks.  Mr. A. L. Lech, of Ontario, has been  in the various camps on Boundary  Creek for some little time past and has  purchased an interest in two claims���  the Boundary Falls and Spotted Horse.  ' Other negotiations are pending and  will doubtless be closed shortly. Mr.  Hemlow was the seller.  Work commenced on Thursday on  the new school, opposite the hospital.,  The structure will be 22x35, storey and  a half, with a 10x10 porch, and will be  lath and plastered throug-hout. The  upper storey will be fitted for living  rooms. Mr. A. B. Hart has the contract, which he will complete within  three weeks.  As will be seen by advertisement in  this paper, the Show at Vernon this  year will be held on October 14th and  15th, and the races the same week.  Notwithstanding the dull times which  have lately ruled in the Okanagan, a '  successful show is assured, the names  of the men at the head of the directorate���Price Ellison and Alf. Postill���  being a sufficient guarantee thereof.  Lord Aberdeen will open the exhibition.  Messrs. Davis and Genelle, from  Everett, Wash., who are interested in  the Rambler, Pass creek, came in .last  Thursday. The Rambler has been incorporated, with a capital of $1,000,000.  Cabins have already been erected and  development will be carried on all winter. The. property looks exceedingly  promising considering the amount of  work done. Messrs. Davis and Genelle  intend to . spend some time around  Greenwood, looking over the various  camps.  The Miner, referring to the alleged  loss of a petition addressed to the Chief  . Commissioner of Lands and Works,  asking for Government aid towards  constructing a road throug-h Summit  camp, via .Eholt creek, which was sent  to Grand Forks to be signed, says that  after due enquiry, nothing- could be  learnt concerning-the   whereabouts   of  . the document in question, nor did anyone remember having ever previously  heard of its existence. "Oh. where  and Oh,where can it be."  We are informed on good authority  that the Seattle claim at Grand Forks,  has been bought by a Mr. Cummings  of Chicago. The sale was effected  through the agency of Messrs. Manly  & Averill. A company is to be organized to develop and work the property,  which is to be stocked for $6,000,000.  Robert Clark, the original locator, is  to receive one-quarter of the number of  shares issued. The purchaser and the  vendor, accompanied by Dr. Averill  and Mr. John Manly, left this week for  Spokane to  perfect  arrang-ements.

The Rossland Miner, in  its   issue of  the 18th, states as follows in reg-ard to  the alleged  failtire . of  Mr.   Heinze  to  float   the, bonds   of  the   Columbia   &  Western in England :  The Miner is advised that Mr. Heinze  has failed to find the capital for this  undertaking- in London. Our information is from a quarter that leaves  no doubt as to its accuracy. It may  therefore be set downr as a certainty  that Mr. Heinze will not build the  road, but it does not follow by any  means that it will not be built. The  C.P.R. may take the project in hand  along with their Crow's Nest Pass line.  Whether they do or not the road will  be built, as other people are ready to  step into the breach and these people  are in a position to build the road and  build it at once.  For the sake of argument assuming  that the Rossland Miner, which is acknowledged to be a "Corbin" paper,  is not biassed and that Mr. Heinze has  failed to finance his scheme in Eng--  land,. it is hardly fair to state at  this early date that he will make no  further efforts ��� to raise the necessary  capital before abandoning the enterprise into other hands.  A special from Ottawa to the Victoria  Colonists-states that the Dominion Government, recognising the importance  of better railway communication between the west and the east, is prepared to assist the C.P.R. to build a road  through Crow's Nest Pass. The.Company will receive a loan exceeding- five  million dollars to carry out .the project.  The dispatch further intimates that if=  the aid is forthcoming construction  will be-commenced early next spring.  Whether this report is reliable is open  to question. ,;:'  A Conservative Opinion.  Mr. T. C. Irving, manager of Brad-  street's Commercial Ag-ency, has the  following- to say of this section :  *��� If the Boundary Creek district had  cheap railway transportation its production, after being* opened up for two  years, ought to reach $5,000,000 a year.  . . . With the present outlook and  what undoubtedly must come, there  oug-ht to be in British Columbia, and  especially along- the southern portion,  a million people within. the next 25  years; and a million "mining- people in  British Columbia is worth as much, if  not more, to the people east of the  Rocky Mountains as four million people in Great Britain, because they are  extravagant consumers and must have  the best of everything-.''  C. C. Sands recently completed assessment work on the Excelsior, in  White's camp,- and the appearance of  the claim has much improved. The  season's work has also been done on  the Eexing-ton, adjoining* the Jack of  Spades and owned b_y Messrs. Rum-  berg-er, Taylor and Oppenheimer.  NOTICE.  In the Matter of Gus.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26. 1896.  EDITORIAL NOTES.  That the appointment of  a  resident  stipendiary magistrate for the  district  will ultimately be necessary, is an- indubitable fact ;   but   it   is   highly   improbable that the  Provincial   Government will pay   much   attention   to  the  petitions, recently  sent  from   here   to  the Attorney-General,   urging  the   expediency    of   immediate   steps   being  taken towards this end.    The  Government, although not always consistently  economical, as a rule   is   careful in the  matter of expenditure and would.more  readily increase the appropriations for  opening up the   district  or  improving  its roadways, than to salary an official  whose   services  very  easily for  some >  time to come might be dispensed with,  so long as the present  justices  of  the  X>eace continue to act.  However, of the five petitions drawn  up, one asks for the removal of Mr.  Lambly, who is already a stipendiary  magistrate, from Osoyoos to Midway,  or to some other point on Boundary  Creek. If the Government act upon  this suggestion, as perhaps it may,  from the fact that it entails no further  outlay in the way of additional salary,  no objection can possibly be raised,  providing Mr. McMynn is allowed to  retain the position of mining recorder,  which he has so ably filled. But the  probabilities are that if Mr. Lambly  leaves Osoyoos he will simply change  places with M r. McMynn���an arrangement which would be grossly unfair to the latter. The petition with  regard to Mr. Lambly was signed only  in the belief that additional offices  would be erected at Midway for the accommodation of the gold commissioner  but this assumption has no foundation  in point of fact.  Meanwhile it is to be hoped that if,  contrary to conjecture, a stipendiary  magistrate is appointed here, the position will be filled by a local man, one  who has the esteem and respect of the  public. ' -=-    "  We alluded last week to the alleged  carelessness of postmasters in the matter of mail delivery ; their culpability,  however, is trifling in comparison with  the utter indifference  of  the  more ex  alted post-office officials to their duties.  It is hardly conceivable that for so  long a time as four or five weeks mail  sacks have been ripped open when  brought to an office and sewn up again  when they leave, because the locks���  which are of themost inferior workmanship���are broken and no hew ones  supplied. There f are several reasons  advanced to account for this : The  most plausible is that inspector Fletcher has anticipated the dismissal;  which he knows he richly deserves and  has quietly slinked off, leaving no one  to " tend store."  GREENWOOD NOTES AND GOSSIP.  wagon  It is expected that the new  road from Greenwood City through  Skylark, Greenwood and Wellington  camps will be completed in about a  week's time. The road is already passable for the whole distance.  - The wife of Mr. Simmons of the  Internadonal Hotel met with a painful  accident last Sunday. While out riding  on the Greenwood road, the horse  stumbled and Mrs. Simmons was  thrown off, dislocating her shoulder.  F. B. Smith, working with the road  gang at Wellington camp, severely  cut his foot with an axe on Monday.  The axe had been but previously  ground, and the edge was more than  ordinarily keen. The gash was about  three inches long, and entered the  fleshy part of the foot, fortutiatelj*  without injury to the  Smith will probably be  some time to tho house.  bones.    Mr.  confined   for  Great improvements have been made  to the Greenwood post-office this week,  and we have to congratulate the local  post-master on the achievement. The  delivery-wicket has been placed at ' a  much more convenient angle, and a  number of postal boxes have been  built. The boxes are to be rented at  moderate figures, and many will, no  doubt, avail themselves of the advantage thus afforded of getting their mail  without the usual tedious delay.  As showing the interest taken in this  district by outsiders, we were shown  this week, a letter from the vice-president of one of the largest commercial  firms in Butte, addressed to a prospector in Greenwood whose name had  been mentioned to him. The .writer  offered to stand the necessary fees and  expenses, together with the cost of development work, for a half interest in  extensions on any claims the prospector  might locate, leaving the selection and  amount of development work entirely  to the judgment of the prospector.     ;  Three members of the Winnipeg  Board of Trade who were with the visitors from the east recently making a  tour through Kootenay, passed through  Boundary, en route to Penticton, on  Thursday's stage. One of these gentlemen, Mr. Frame, of Virden, Man.,  speaking for the others, said that the  excursionists had much enjoyed their  trip and hoped that from, a business  point of view much good would result  therefrom. The east, he continued,  was fast awakening to the fact that  British Columbia was likely to be the  scene of great mining activity in the  near future and that it was now recognised that unless eastern business men  make more effort to secure western  trade it would pass put of their hands  altogether.

Two shifts have' been put on at the  Mother Lyode this week. Work on the  -shaft has been stopped for the present,  and the ledge is to be crosscut, starting from the lime contact on the hillside. ' '':>  A good strike was made by W. A.  Corbett on the Iyake claim, Skylark  camp, this week. He is opening* the  L/ast Chance lead which runs through  his property, and has found what is  evidently a rich pay-streak.  Tom McDonnell went up on Tuesday  to do assessment work on the Phoenix,  in Greenwood camp. This claim is on  the same lead as the   Stemwinder   and  Ironsides,   but   the   capping,  which is  exceptionally heavy, has not yet  been  penetrated.  Mr. P. Meyers has been working at  different times during the slimmer on  his two properties in Deadwood, the  Gold Bug and the Herbert Spencer.  On the latter, almost accidently, a  ledge IS feet'wide was uncovered carrying sulphides.  The water is being taken out of the  City of Paris shaft and a mining expert is expected to arrive shortly to report on the property. The likelihood  of a sale being made is fairly certain.  The shaft is 60 feet deep and is at  present half full of water.  Capt. Kail, who has many acquaintances in this camp, is now in charge  of the lye Roi mine at Rossland. Since  the management has. been put into his  hands, the wages of miners have been  raised from S3.00 to $3.50 a day of eight  hours, while car-men and shovellers receive $3.00 instead of $2.50.  Work sufficient to^entitle the owners  to a Crown Grant has been completed  on the Jumbo, and consists of open  cross-cut's, and a shaft sunk on the  hanging-wall for 25 feet. The ledge  is w*ell mineralized. Bill Austin went  up on Wednesday to Pass creek to do  assessment work on two claims which  he located last spring.  The eastern extension of the Skylark, formerly'known as the Morning  Star, was re-located last week by the  Inkster Bros; There is a fairly g*ood  showing* on the claim, but its value at  present lies more in its proximity to  the Skylark. The original owners intended to re-stake, but clid not arrive  at the claim in time to do sOv  Andrew Hanson and Jim Steele  brought down on Tuesda.y same specimens of rock froni the Big Four. The  capping is a magnetic iron, beneath  which at a depth of six inches copx^er  comes in. The specimen pieces show  peacock copper, with copper pyrites.  By the footwall there is a streak of  oxydized quartz that should run well  in gold. On Monday another big capping was found on this claim.  Dan. Couteney, an old-time prospector, passed through here this week  on his way back to the Similkameen,  where he has several claims on Olally  creek, near Keremeos. One of these,  the Nabob, was only discovered within  the past two weeks. From samples  which were being exhibited, the claim  has a rich surface showing, the ore  from a seven foot ledge assaying 20  per cent, copper, 10 ozs. silver, and  from a trace to $16 in gold. The Similkameen has been so far little prospected and undoubtedly some big finds  will be made there in the course of  time. Mr. Couteney owns a half-interest in another claim there, the price  of which he modestly sets at five million dollars.

It is true thatone who has not visited  the British Columbia country and  viewed its vast mineral resources from  a personal standpoint of investig-ation,  will not believe one-half of the reports  that are now being- circulated throug-h  news-papers or told by men of experience who have been here and witnessed the mineral showing- of this section,  and more especially the^ prodigious surface showing- of the Boundary creek  district. Letters to personal friends  are looked upon as showing- the "earmarks " of improbability, thoug-h written in a spirit of-conscientious candor.  Outsiders cannot realize that there is  such a country in existence, nor understand why, if so, the times are not  more prosperous in such a country, and  form all sorts of ideas before knowing,  the exact circumstances or conditions  which govern development.  The writer recently left Butte City',  Montana, expecting upon his arrival  here to find things vastly over-estimated, and in that case he would have  had the satisfaction of seeing* the country and return again at will. I^ong  before Greenwood City was reached  there were evidences of truth in the  statements reported on the outside,  and more evidence in the success of  the country,   from  the  fact  that new  citiesoweik   building- up   everywhere,  and to this end something- of  stibstan-  tiability must be behind  the  expenditure and confidence shown in the country.   My first trip was up to Deadwood  and Copper  camps.    Since   then,   and  during the past four weeks, I have visited all the'principal camps and mines,  and I must say that I have never in all  my experience been in a country where  there is such a mineral showing* on the  surface as is exposed in the  Boundary  Creek  district.     L/eadville,   Colorado,  Ivake Valley, New  Mexico, Red Mountain   in  the  San  Juan  country,   and  even   the   great   mineral   deposits  of  Butte,   bear no  comparison  with one  camp   in   this   country  for   a. mineral  showing.    When one  can  stand  upon  the dump of a mineral claim,   see   the  bottom of the  shaft,   and  further  see  mineral in a solid body exposed  for 60  and 75 feet on  either  side ; then walk  over the ground for  600  feet  and  see  the same body of ore  in  a  continuous  vein, the deduction   is   obvious.    Such  is the case at the Big- Copper property ;  ithe Great Hopes and Sunset,  in  Dead-  wood camp ; the Winnipeg and Golden  Crown, in Wellington camp; the Ironsides,   Stemwinder,   Knob  Hill,   Gold  Drop, Monarch,   Snowshoe  and  Rawhide mines   in   Greenwood   camp ; the  Emma   and   Oro  Denoro,   in Summit  camp ; the Denaro Grande, North Star,  Roderick Dhu and Jewel, in IvongL,ake  camp | the City of Paris, Lincoln, and  No. 7, in White's  camp ; the   Skylark,  Last   Chance,   Denoro,    Silver  King-,  Nig-hting-ale and Iron Cap. in   Slcylark  camp, and many others.  With these facts confronting an experienced man, how can he doubt the  liklihood of the promising outlook for  the future not being fulfilled ? I consider the Boundary creek countiw, as a  mining section, the greatest on the  face of the earth, and its rapid growth  1 and development in the next twenty-  four months will astonish the world.  Air that is lacking- now are transportation facilities and a home market for  the ores of the district; When these  desiderata are supplied, those who have  'furnished the "vim, vineg-ar and, vit-  rbil " to build up the "mineral hub of  the universe," will earn a deserved  success.

Though more"'or  less a.business venture, supposedly .,to  attract attention and  trade   to  Greenwood City, the   establishment of .such  an institution as the hospital in Boundary is nevertheless of real and permanent benefit to  the   entire 'community.  While', at the present time, sickness   is  little known in the district, and serious  injuries resulting  from   accidents   are  comparatively of rare occurrence,   this  blissful state of   affairs,   with  the   in-'  crease'of population, cannot be expect--  ed   to   continue.     Mining is  proverbially     a   dangerous   occupation,   and  though, of course, it is  very_ sincerely  to be hoped that when mining development fairly begins, the   pages   of   the  history of Boundary creek  may  never  be saddened by the record /of' terrible  mining   disasters   accompanied   with,  in most cases, loss   of  life,- or,., at  the  best, serious injury aniong the miners,-  ���instances of which w.ill long- continue  to be sorrowfully associated   with   the  names  of   many   well-known   mining  camps���yet, it is well to know  that  in  the case of an emergency   arising,   the  injured-or sick will have the benefit of  clean   and   comfortable   surroundings  and careful nursing.  The site of the building is admirably  chosen : sheltered from the cold winds  of the north and east,   the  hospital  is  the ���  a  picturesque  view of the valley. and   the   pine-clad  ranges in the distance.    Thus, a cheer- ���-���  ful outlook, so essential during-  conva.1  lescence, is thoughtfully provided  for.  The  hospital   itself   is,   perhaps,   the  most pretentious building*  3*et   erected  in  the  country  between  Vernon   and-  Rossland.     The   estimated   cost'  was  $10,000, though  this   also   covers   the  plumbing expenses and the cost of the  heating   apparatus.    The   building   is-  three storeys in height and has a basement beneath ; it is   104  feet   long  by  56 wide.The outside is painted an olive  green with old gold trimmings, and'the;  roof a dull red relieved by a terra cotta  belt-course.��� - In. the   basement   is   the  : kitchen, -provided   with   a   '*dunimy^  waiter,"���an ' innovation   truly'to -tile ���  domestic economy usual to a new mining town���-the store-rooms, .the laundry, "'������  and   the   morgue. ���  Here,   too,   is  the ..:  large furnace, from   which   pipes  run-1'  ning all through the building, maintain  the  atmosphere   at   any   temperature,  that may  be   required.    Through   the;  main     entrance    one    comes    into    a  spacious hall, to the left  of   which   is"  the doctor's consulting- room,   comfortably provided  with   a   tiled   fire-place  and mantel, off from   this   is   another  small room, where, no doubt,   many   a  nervous patient will treniulouslj* await  the physician's diagnosis deduced, from  the tell-tale evidence  of  a ��� protruding  tongue.   From these haunts, especially  sacred to the resident disciple of ^E)scu-  lapitts, to the right is the men's  ward,  a large, airy room w-ith plastered walls,  pleasingly tinted; partitioned off from  the ward is the nurses' waiting-room,  convenientl}7- fitted with closets. The  bath-room near-by, where an unlimited  supply of hot or cold water will always  be obtainable, is almost luxuriantly  appointed and is a characteristic  ���feature of the general idea which the  architect has so successfully carried  out, of making every detail subservient  to the comfort of the future inmates of  the hospital. Further on, in the left  wing, is the- ward1 .for " female cases.  The room is like in size and appearance  that on the other side of the building  w*here male cases will be treated, but  instead of being one large apartment,  it is divided into several small rooms  or cubicles'.-��� On this floor there is also  the doctor's private parlor and dining  room, and a ward, dining rocm.  Ascending 'the stairway with its balustrade of native tamarack, facing are  two large rooms, one'of which is to   be  called theg-ues,t chamber.    On the left  is a second bath-room, and  turning  to  the right, with a view facing the town,  - are two handsome rooms  intended  for  "* the private 'use ofl  the' doctor's   wife.  .There is yet another flight to be climb-  ed. to the third floor, where the   cistern  is placed into which,.' until   a   regular  water-works' system is carried  out,   a  ram pumps a continual supply of  pure*  water.    The whole of this floor will be  ' placed at the disposal of  convalescent  patients.  . All of the building* material used in  the hospital, with'the exception of the  doors, is of home manufacture, and the  wood-work, fi nisheddn oil, is an excellent testimonial for the local sawmills. The high-class workmanship  -displaj-ed in every department is most  creditable, and Mr. Hart is to be complimented on the jresult. It is sufficient  to sa'v that no city in Canada would  hive occasion to- be. ashamed of so  presentable a building' as the Green-  ���wood Hospital.,  For Occupation or Speculation.

John "Weir arrived in Anaconda  last Wednesday and will probably be  in the camp on business eonnected with  his mining- interests here for some  little time. On Thursday he kindly  consented to be interviewed by a representative of The Times.  "Do you think, Colonel, that the  presidential campaig-n on the other side  is likely to affect investments being-  made in mining property here this fall  by Americans?"  ���' Most probably, and no doubt for  some time after the contest is decided  there will be a general business depression."  "Has Mr. Bryan much chance of  election ?"  "Well, it is difficult to say, but I  hope McKinley will be the next president. I think his prospects decidedly  brig-ht."  " Then you are  not  an  upholder of  the silver movement ?"  "No; I think if Mr.   Bryan is  ever  in   a   position  to   carry  out  his  programme, the effect  will be just the op-  - posite to what is anticipated   and  that  the: value   of   silver    will   depreciate  rather than remain even at the present  market value.    I am larg-ely interested  in some big silver mines and  I  naturally prefer to  see  the  price  of  silver  niaintained at 67 or 68 cents  than drop  to perhaps 55. The idea is that a mine-  owner may take his bullion to the mint  to be coined and receive back the whole  in dollars.    In the States  this  may be  feasible, but other nations will not regard the matter in the same  light and  the dollar abroad  will only  be  worth  its bullion value, or about half its face  value.    I was in India when  the mints  there were thrown open for  free  coinage and the country was flooded  with  the production of the  silver  mines  of  Nevada ; the value of the rupee at once  dropped  from  2s.   to   Is.3d.    If,   however, the United  States was a creditor  instead of a debtor, the  matter  would  wear a different aspect.  As it is, farmers, for instance, who have mortgaged  their lands in  Dngland  or  elsewher.e,  are  naturally   anxious   to  reduce  the.  mortgages by payment in silver,which  literally means they would pay half instead of the "whole  of  their  indebtedness.    It does not require much insight  to see the dishonesty of such a cotirse."  " About this  district,   Colonel, what  are   your   opinions   from  the surface  showings?"  I have said in public before, .that this  camp, judging from surface indications  compares favorably with any mining  centre in America, and I think it has a  bright future."  " Of the properties you have  bonded  here, may I ask   if   you   are   satisfied  with the   result   of   the ' development .  work so far as it goes ? "  " Well, we have not done enough for  me for me to express an opinion about  that just yet. In prospecting, as we  are doing, progress must necessarily  be slow."  *.* Did you hear anything on the outside about the non-success of Mr.  Heinze to float his railroad bonds? "  "No; but I should not be at all surprised to hear that he had failed. The  present financial depression is, more  or less, generally felt all over the  world, and to raise any large amount  of capital, no matter for what purpose,  is now a very difficult task, either in  Iyondon or in any other money market.  Mr. Heinze, however, deserves ver3*  much credit for, what he has already  done for British Columbia. The people  in this country don't at all sufficiently  appreciate "pioneer" enterprise. In  Mr. Wood's case, for example, instead  of receiving praise and encouragement for all he has accomplished, he,  so far as I have been able to judge, gets  on all sides very roundly abused.  People living in the country who have  not much personally at stake, forget  what they owe to those chiefly instrumental in bringing"it forward." i:^:/^:'i^';:i5:^''- ;'VV.,  S^^^S^sr^^v'1''  ��� ���ift.y;t;;,5'?<-.^-.v'-*;; :-���.-.:;; .���:.::  -:.-v'.v 'feVAfc&vX* -;;< fi,  --rJ'.r i-^-,.v::,l!; ���;.:'</.  -���-:*:  t.yy'j^-'1���  :.^V'  li$����fe#*^  B^,*'i'vi^'^.;:v\w.^i.Sr';K S:,--;\  '������Vf\';';.':��>.
