Vol, III.  GREENWOOD CITY, B.C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1897.  05  No/ 3,  RE-DISTRIBUTION.  HF chief government organ in one of its mo-  ^ments of weakness or acting through instruction from its masters, coolly suggests the  possibility of there 'being no redistribution  bill until after the completion of the census  of 1901. The newspaper in question is supposed to have the ear of the Provincial government, on whose shoulders is placed the responsibility for  its political utterances. Keeping this fact in view and having a knowledge of the record of the government and its  distinguished predecessors, it comes within the range of  probability that the Turner government intend to go to the  country without the passage of a redistribution bill. ',  The perpetuation of the present system of distribution  would be a disgrace to a people who would submit to their  disfranchisement; a criminal act on the part of a government whose political necessity would force them to disregard every canon of popular representation, ann'arsad commentary upon any newspaper who would so far forget its  duty to the public as to suggest or endorse such a procedure.  A careful study of the election figures will clearly  show that the last bill was based on no principle  of redistribution. It was simply a piece of political sharp-  practice, the product of the trickster who by brute force  legislation succeeded in establishing a "government by  minorities." We recently quoted the figures to prove this  and it is not necessary to refer to them again. The redistribution bill gave compact, sparsely populated and unimportant districts more members than they were entitled to, and practically left unrepresented large, populous  and important mining districts; The discrepancies between  districts were great in 1894 ; they have multiplied in the intervening years. A narrow strip of farming land adjacent  to Victoria is given two members because 450 electors  returned the retained counsel of the masters of the government and a then loyal supporter ; an important mining district separated by nature from the rest of the province is  pinned to a populous agricultural district and its 1022 voters  were asked to return a member of the government who was  sponsor for such an act. But the electors of Fast Yale had  too much independence and self respect to endorse such a  travesty on popular representation. In the pocket boroughs  with their dual representation, the populatipn has remained  almost stationary, while the Yales and the Kootenays and  other districts have doubled and trebled their populations  within the last four years. Still the suggestion is made  that an election will take place without a redistribution bill!  We^venture to assert that the people would never submit to  such an outrage. Fet representation continue as at present  and it would mean not a government b}* or of the people but  the establishment of a satrapy. Probably the premier  would then enjoy the sobriquet of "the sick man of British  Columbia."  After all the preparation of a fair and equitable redistribution bill should not prove a serious ���matter if the government could rise above political expediencies and give the  province its dues. Fet the system of giving a district more  than one member be abolished with the possible exception  of large cities ; let the districts be sub-divided according to  their populations, having- three separate bases for sub-division���one for cities, another for populous agricultural and  mining- districts and a third for isolated and sparsel}* populated districts. We greatly fear, however, that unless  sufficient  pressure is brought to  bear on the govern men t it  will, if it does at all, bring down such a measure as will  give the best possible chance for the mal-administration of  public affairs.  ���-fir  THE CITY COUNCIL.  There was a full attendance at last Monday evening's  regular meeting- of the municipal council. Health matters  and selling liquors by retail at the brewery received the  greatest consideration. Police Officer Fawder informed the  board that he had communicated with the proper authorities in reference to the council's request regarding the  securing of the court house for meetings.  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M. P., informed the council that he  had written to the Postmaster-General urging him to establish a daily mail between Greenwood and Grand Forks. He  further stated that this would have been done sooner but the  Postmaster-General was considering the advisability of  having a daily service between Penticton and Grand Forks  but hesitated on account of the expense.     ���  Alderman Galloway reported that a grade had been given  by Mr. Shaw for Government street that appeared to give  general satisfaction, but until a grade was secured for Copper street the committee could not report ftilly.  The sanitary officer reported that he made an inspection  of the city last week and regretted to say that he found several places in a disgraceful condition. He notified several  people and unless there was a change for" the better, summons should be issued.      y  Alderman Barrett said that Captain Wolley, the provincial officer, would be around in a few days arid the city  should be placed in as good a sanitary condition as possible.  Alderman Galloway also urged that the people be forced to  keep the city clean. There could be no excuse for neglecting sanitary regulations.  The Board of Health were requested to strictly enforce  the sanitary regulations.  Alderman Hamill of the Board of Works reported that  they had a man employed taking stumps out of Copper  str.eet, and that work would be continued on Greenwood and  Government streets.  Alderman Barrett drew the attention of the council to the  fact that beer was being sold in small quantities and drunk  at the brewery with the result that on Sunday a disgraceful  disturbance took place there. He failed to see upon what  authority liquor could be sold at the brewery in small quantities.  Alderman Hamill also spoke strongly on the matter. In.  place of a brewery it was a retail beer saloon. They surely  had no license to sell beer by retail. Alderman Rendell  pointed out that the cit}' had decided that there should be  no saloon license, that none had been granted and that the  proprietors of the brewery should be prosecuted.  After further discussion it was decided to notify the proprietors of the brewery that they must not sell beer by  retail, and Aid. Barrett gave notice to amend the schedule of license fees by including- a license for a brewery.  Alderman Galloway would like to see a tax on dogs.  There were too many useless curs in Greenwood. The owner of a good dog would not object to the payment of a tax  and it might result in doing away with a number of useless  ones.  Alderman Phelan heartily endorsed Alderman Galloway's  remarks. The most of the dogs in the city were not worth  the powder to shoot them.  It was found that it would be necessary to pass a by-law  in  order   to   levy   a   tax   on   dogs :   consequently   the  curs T HE   B O U N D A R ��� Y   C F E E K   TIM E S,  can for a few  months  roam about the  streets without a tag-.  Alderman Hamill was granted permission to use a portion of the street  for building-purposes.  The question of waterworks again  came up and on the motion of Alderman Phelan, the clerk was instructed  to correspond with the government  analyst, with a view to secure analyses  of Twin, Boundary and Eholt creek  water. ���  Mayor   Wood   informed   the   council  that he had secured offers   to complete  the   waterworks   and   wished to secure  an expression of opinion as to whether  the council would rather   see   a private  company   do   the   work   or   wait until  spring when probably   the   city   could  undertake the construction of a system  of waterworks.    If the latter, he would  be satisfied to do nothing until  spring.  All   the   alderman   expressed themselves   in   favor   of g-iving- a   private  company   every   ehcourag-ement  to g-o  ahead   this fall.    Maj-or  Wood agreed  that  the work could be left to the supervision of aii3'one the  city niig-ht  appoint  so   as to   insure an efficient and  permanent system.  It was pointed .out  that   city   debentures would   sell better next  year   and  even if the city had to pay 30 per cent,  more for the waterworks, money would ,  not be lost.  The council adjourned until next Mon-  dav eveiiiner.  Fire  Protection.  Among the multifarious duties  -which the city council is, supposed to  perform, fire protection should not be  overlooked. A volunteer company was  organized some three months ag-o but  outside of securing buckets and ladders nothing- appears to have been  done.    The   council should take an in  terest in the matter  and   encourag-e  a  body of men to train themselves to  fig-ht fire. Greenwood has so far enjoyed perfect immunity from fires but as  the town is rapidLy growing the dan-  g-er from this source is also increasing-  and it is of the utmost importance that  there should be a well drilled fire department. ______   Northwest Mining Association.  The   third   an n u al  meeting of  the  Northwest Mining- Association  will be  held in Spokane on October 7th, 8th  and 9th next. A large attendance is  expected. Leading- subjects pertaining- to mining- will be discussed and  each member will be given an opportunity* to make known his views. The  miners' day at the Fruit Fair, will be  October 8th.  Spokane's Enterprise.  Spokane is nothing if not energetic.  She succeeded in building- herself up  on the products of the Kootenay mines  and now she is booming- an overland  route to Klonk3*ke. Her citizens see  no.good reason why people should g-o to  the coast to reach Klond3*de. We  would sug-g-est as the most feasible  route the construction of a railway  from the Spokane and Northern to  Penticton and then on from Kamloops  or Ashcroft to Lake Teslin. We may  say here that we have a selfish interest  in the consummation of such a scheme.  It would be pleasing to see the enthusiastic gold seekers pass through Greenwood in Pullman sleepers.

Grevy, President of the Lemon  Gold Mining- Company, whose property  is located at Camp McKinney has got  the gold fever. It is no ordinary case  but equal to the worst form of Klondy-  citis, judg-ing- from his report to officers  of the company which was published  in an Omaha paper. The report is a  wonderful production and lack of space  is our only excuse for not publishing-  the whole of it. Here are some quotations :  " We g-et our fuel as a prior location  and many claims are crowded back out  of the pathway of the giant. * *��� *  The Fondon niine joining- the Lemon  on , the south next, last Thursday  struck a seam two feet wide and now  stripped 40 feet long, of almost pure  native gold."    *   *    "  '* I know the identical spot, where  Captain Currie got his quartz. The  guide who brought him here, showed  me. We have thousands upon thousands tons of the same ore. The man  who once owned this property (as  " Black Diamond " and let his title  lapse because he had more mines than  he could carry, sent me word wishing  me success and saying he once made  an assay from the tunnel that ran fabulously in gold."  " The Lemon is a gold mine and now  goes on record still further by adding  that it is one of the world's biggest  mines. We have, if there was sale for  it and there may be* some day, $50,000  worth of timber on the claim���trees  bigger than the New York Life building! The Lemon is worth $1,000,000 if  it is worth a cent. " *��� * The Cariboo runs but ten stamps. This great  property is near the Lemon. With ten  stamps the mine is paying 2 per cent,  a month, the capital stock being $800,-  000. The vein is only four feet wide.  Compared with the Lemon it (Cariboo)  is but a baby!"  " We are down 15 feet in the new  shaft today, July 30, and the ore looks  splendidly. When we commence to.  drift into the big vein you will hear  something drop. The galena ore is  ' out of sight.' "  " I will send you a chunk of quartz  from ledge No. 2 and the ore is better  and richer further in. You need not  be ashamed to show this ore to anybody. Should I send a bushel of it,  and you should put it in your window,  it would be necessary for you to put a  guard upon it. We are not hunting for  a mine here, it is right in sight."  The description ends by requesting  the officers to not sell another share  after the first $50,000. Mr. Grevy also  mentions that he has located the adjoining claim naming it the Mabel  Clare which is supposed to be on the  ledge of the famous No. 7. The only  No. 7 known of in the district is situated in Central Camp about 30 miles from  Camp McKinney.  Spokane   Fair.  There are several going from Boundary Creek to the Spokane Fruit Fair  which opens October 5th. The management has issued a pamphlet of information concerning Spokane.

SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 25, .1897.  THE   CITY   WATERWORKS.  It will be gratifying- news for the  residents of Greenwood to learn that  the Greenwood Waterworks Company  are getting into a position to .'construct  an efficient system of waterworks   this  ;  fail. ���    ' ���     ';.-:���''���"  The construction of the worksowill  not only give employment to a number  of men and secure the 'expenditure, of  considerable money in the city, but the  mag-nificient force for fire purposes  which can be secured from Twin Creek  will give investors and business men  more confidence in the city and insurance companies will be more willing- to  assure against fire risks. .  Mayor Wood's offer to the council   at  the last meeting" was a most  generous  one.    Personally he said that he would  be quite   willing-   to   accept  dollar  for  dollar for any money  expended  in the  ���enterprise  should the city want to purchase, but in order  to g-et   the  capital  necessary     to    construct    the    work,  moneyed men would have to be promised a reasonable return for their money.  The city will be   in a better position to  pay 30 per cent, premium a year hence  than  to   take  the  waterworks over at  par at the present time.  The sug-gestion that the work should  be carried on under the supervision of  a competent man is also a g-ood one.  The city cannot afford to be hampered  b)r an imperfect system of waterworks  even if it is constructed by a private  company.   ing- and not farm land.    The case was  decided in Mr. Walsh's favor.  J. A. Coryell, P. Lv. S., has completed  surveying-the Rattler and other mineral claims in Wellington camp.  C. Nv Collins the well known mining-  man returned this week from Spokane.  He has fully recovered from his recent  severe attack of rheumatism..  J. D. Sword,   general   agent  for   the  Ing-ersoll-Serg-eant  Drill   Co.,   told the  Rossland   Miner  upon his return from  , Boundary Creek that  he found every-  !: thing-'in a flourishing-condition here.  During- the week Alderman Galloway  secured a   number  of excellent  specimens of ore from the different  camps.  Mine owners   also   have   sent in many  specimens so that a creditable  exhibit  at the Spokane Fair is now assured.  There has been registered at the  Somerset House, I^ondon, the British  Columbia (Kettle River) Mining- and  Exploration Company, Tytd. The object of the company according-to the  British Columbia Review is to acquire  various mines situated near Greenwood. '.',.:'''  A. H. Harrison has 15 men oh the  pay roll at the B.

The sensational story regarding a  hold up at Ea .'Fleur , sent out from  Grand Forks last week appears to have  been the product of some one's fertile  imagination.    Inquiries   prove  that it  not  the  slightest  foundation   in  had  fact. "  Grand Forks appears to be badly excited. The family affairs of its Chief  Magistrate have turned, people aside  from the even tenor of their way. The  local paper ^/published a blood curdling  tale about Manager Keane of the Cariboo mine being shot down and suggests that a brother of Martin Roder-  ick had fulfilled his vow to avenge his  brother's death. This story appears to  be as foundationless as the other. The  latest reports from Camp McKinney  are to the effect that Keane is very  much alive.  Mayor Manly's affairs appear to be  in a bad way judging from the following in the Grand Forks Miner :  "At present the family affairs of  Mayor Manly have been furnishing  plenty of food for the scandal mongers  to feast upon, and the number of wild  stories that are in circulation are so  great that they would fill a volumri of  a sensational magazine.  Since Mayor Manly took his departure from the city nearly two months  ago the report has been current that he  would not return to the city to reside.  At first there was no attention paid to  the rumor, supposing it to be the production of the idle brain of some imaginative person with nothing better to  do than to put such stories in circulation.  As time after time set for his return  came and passed without his putting in  an appearance, the report of his non  return began to have some semblance  of truth, and the developments of the  past week have been of such a nature,  even his staunchest friends and admirers in the city are in doubt as to his  future intentions. While the Miner is  of the opinion that there is no doubt  but Mayor Manly will return as soon  as he can get his business affairs in  Rossland, which have gotten into a  very tangled condition owing to his  partner's mismanagement, straightened out it believes that Mr. Manly  should either return to the city or forward his resignation as mayor at once.  By so doing he will put a stop to the  scandalous    rumors    that   are   afloat  which are doing him irreparable injury, as well as untold damage to the  welfare of the city."  License Commissioners.  The provincial government ought to  appoint license commissioners for  Greeiiwood without delay. There is  plenty of work for the board to do within the next few months and the absence  of a board works a hardship on  those who are putting up a large hotel  building with the expectation of securing a license. The board will be composed of His Worship, the Mayor, a  police magistrate to be appointed by  the  government  and a third  commis  sioner who is  eminent.  also chosen bv the  gov-  Crown Grants.���When applying for  crown grants, request that the advertising thereof be published in The  Boundary Creek Times,���the mining  paper of the district.

The Victoria Province furnishes a  new receipt for making money. It is  said to be quite popular with a certain  class of mining speculators. The  receipt, is as follows.:  "You form a   syndicate   in   Fondon,  Fngland,   for  instance,    (though   any  other city will do as well provided only  it is   far   enough   removed   from   the  scene   of  your   subsequent   action) for  the   purpose   of   acquiring,   bonding,  buying, selling: and   otherwise dealing  iii'.mineral' claims,   gold-bearing-    by  way   of, preference.    You   get named  local manager   of  the   syndicate, with  full powers to act.    Then   3*011 start in  and   give   bonds upon various   properties,  $5,000   for this, claim,  $10,000 for  that, $20,000 for the   other,   and so   on  until you have committed the syndicate  to a good round figure���say half a million   dollars.    Then   ypu    proceed   to  round   up" the   profits���not  the   syndicate's,   you  don't  bother   about them,  but your  own.    You  go  to  No.   1, to  whom you have given   the $5,000 bond,  ,'' and explain   to him that  your friends  in. Fondon having carefully   examined  his property, have come to the   conclusion that the   amount   is too large, the  showings are rather disappointing than  otherwise, the assays,      .    .    etc., etc.,  (but imagination can easily stqjply the  blanks) and unless he sees   his way to  reduce the ,. sum by $1,000, they will be  obliged to throw up the bond.    He does  see  his way and you pocket the $1,000.  Then you go   to Nos. 2 and 3, the $10,-'  000 and the $20,000  men,   respectively,  and  repeat  the  operation, scoring we  will  say,   $3,000   in   one case, $6,000 in  the other and so on and so on until you  round up some $100,000   which   is eminently   satisfactory   to  everybody but  the   members   of   the   syndicate   with  whom you don't'go into details   and to  whom  you   pass  in the   claims   at the  original figure."  Clearing the Okanagan.  Mr. J. R. Roy, C. F., who hasreturn-  ed to the coast reports that  he  has set  a  gang-   to   work   to   clear   Okanagan  river, between Penticton and Dog lake.  The appropriation for this   purpose   is  not very large, but  the  chief  obstructions to navigation will   be  cleared   at  once,   sufficiently   to   allow   the   new  steamer to make a trip.    This steamer  will be ready in thirty da}*s.    This will  enable the transportation of freight  to  Okanagan   falls   by   water.    The sixteen miles of road thus saved is described as being   almost   the   worst   in  the  country,   and   requires    teams   of  six  horses to every   wag-on load.    There is  a tremendous amount of freight goingv  in   over   that   route   to the Boundary  Creek   district,    and   emploj'ment     is  g-iven to a great many   teamsters,   one  man   alone   operating   twenty   teams.  These,  teams   carry   in provisions and  bring- out ore   and   concentrates,   from  Fairview   and   Camp   McKinney   and  other mining districts.  J. Monag-han, president of the Cariboo Mining Company came in over the  new Kettle River road to Midway last  Saturda}* on his way to Camp McKinney.  Mr. T. Flliot the well known business man of Fairview returned from a.  three months' visit to Fngland last  week. Mr. Flliot while in the Old  Couiitr}' succeeded in securing- considerable capital to invest in Fairview  property*.

J. C. Haas has purchased the Emerald mineral claim from W. B. Rick-  ards.   ' ..-../.'  The Okanagan Fair was held at Ke-  lowna  on  Wednesday   and   Thursday  last.  Messrs. Nelson and Tynan have purchased the Maud R. claim in Long  I/ake camp from M. T. Robinson.  It is reported in Spokane that work  will shortly commence on a 50-ton  smelter to be erected in the Okanagan  district.  Thos. Wake of Boundary Falls hotel  recently transferred all his interests in  over 20 claims to G. T. Hodgson and  A. N. Pelly.      ���������'��� ���>  ':  ', Mrs. Graham and Miss Thornber  met with good success this week in  their canvas for subscriptions to purchase a church organ.  At  the   Spokane Fair,  the   lye   Roi  ���������.Company''will show   a   huge   specimen  from   the  500  foot level which will tip  the scales at 3400 pounds.  Donald Graham, M. P. P., intends  visiting Boundai-yv-Creek district early  next week. He will inquire into the  wants of his constituents.  Thos. Hardy who has purchased  Armstrong & Co's. hardware store at  Anaconda makes an important announcement in his advertisement this  week.  The Smuggler Company of Fairview  will run their mill night and day. The  new machinery is working'smoothly.  Some very rich ore is being mined at  present.  The Privitt hold-up story is making  the rounds of the provincial press and  in all probability���the murder of Keene  will follow suit. Fiction travels faster  than truth.  Sydney M. Johnson, C. IS,., of Anaconda, left yesterday for Trail to survey a group of . claims for an eastern  syndicate. He will be awaj* about  three weeks.  Some  exceeding  taken   from   the  Greenwood  camp,  ly rich ore is being  Snowshoe mine in  a  larg-e  sample of  which   will be   included in the   exhibit  for Spokane.  F. B. Simnionds of the International  hotel left this week on a six weeks*  trip to his old home in New York. Mr.  Simmpnds will combine business with  pleasure during his visit east.  A gang- of men are at work straightening out Boundary Creek in the addition. This will add to the appearance  of the upper portion of the town and  also give the river a greater fall.  The city council have received an  offer from a financial institution to  advance the money asked for in the  temporary loan by-law, the rate of interest being 8 per cent, per annum.  D. C. McArthur who has been engaged in prospecting- and mining in Boundary Creek district during the past  3*ear, has left for his home in the east.  He intends going to Klondyke next  y ear.  During- Mr. Woodhouse's recent visit  to this district he secured an option to  some valuable ruining-, interests. He  has left for'England to consult with  his principals. Mr. F. M. F. Munns,  his. associate, visited Greenwood this  week. Work on the Anaconda group  will becrin in about two weeks.  The work on the Tinhorn crusher is  progressing radidly and it is expected  that everything will be read}* for operation by the 15th of next month. Dier  and Davidson's new hotel is also rapidly nearing- completion. When finished it will be the largest and best equip  ped hotel in the interior costing nearly  $30,000.  Thos. Hardy of Anaconda paid a  business visit to Camp McKinney this  week.  Peter T. McCallum has been elected  as alderman in Grand Forks to fill the  vacancy made by the resignation of  Alderman Dufore.  Boundary Creek district has been enjoying a perfect Indian summer for  the last two weeks. The weather has  been warm enough for July...  The recent improvement on Copper  street has given it a more presentable  appearance. The Board of Work's will  have considerable difficulty getting  Government street into shape.  Mr. J. W. Nelson one of the pioneers  of Greenwood will enter into a life  partnership shortly. His associate in  the partnership will be Mrs. Hofell, a  sister of Mrs. C. W. Tynan. The  Times extends its congratulations.  A. Williams, M. P. P., visited Rossland recently and in an interview with  the Rossland Record deprecated any  attempt made to introduce party  politics into the provincial campaign.  He said also, that the Turner government would be swept from office.  Mr. Leonard Norris, collector of  votes, intends distributing copies of  the lists up to, date shortly. , Those  qualified, whose names do not appear  thereon, should register at once. The  average elector is altogether too careless about registering his vote until  election day, and then he generally  abuses some one because his name is  not on the list.  The  Lieutenant Governorship.  If Sir Wilfred Iyaurier is desirous of  ascertaining the wishes of the people  of British Columbia regarding the appointment of a lieutenant-governor he  will naturally turn to the provincial  press and if he does so, he will find  that every paper with the exception of  two are urging that Mr. William  Templeman be appointed. One of  these the Colonist is too bitter a Tory  partizan to endorse anything that will  give satisfaction to the liberal party,  while the other the Vancouver World is  actuated by selfish interests. Its manager Mr. J. C. Mclyagan although  priding himself on being a pioneer  Iyiberal in this province, used his paper  for the purpose of defeating the Liberal candidate in New Westminster district in '91 when assistance was greatly  needed. In 1896 the Liberals won, despite the World's assistance. Its proprietor as a reward asks that he be given  a seat among the other old women in  the senate. His plan is to give Senator Mclnnes the Laeutenant-Govefnor-  ship, leaving a vacancy in the Senate which he hopes to fill. The plan  may suit Senator Mclnnes, and Mr.  MclyOgan but if carried out will be in  direct opposition to the wishes of the  Iyiberal party. We believe that ''Sir  Wilfrid is too astute a politician to be  caught bjr the blandishments of a  veneered Tor}* and a vacillating liberal.  County Court.  County Court will be held at Oso}*oos  Wednesday next and at Midway October 2nd. As it is reported that Mr.  Justice McCall has been appointed by  the minister of justice to inquire into  certain charg-es made against His Honor, Judge Spink's,, it is not known  whether he will preside or not. The'  charg-es ag-ainst the Judge have been  filed  by a Grand Forks'   barrister and  they include one to the effect that the  Judge neglected court matters for his-  own personal affairs.  Mineral Exhibit.  The Times will next week publish,  an article descriptive of the mineral  exhibit which will be sent to Spokane.  The exhibit is a collection that will be  no discredit to the district.  A Klondyke Railway.  New York and Seattle capitalists-  have subscribed the necessary money  to build a narrow guage railway from  Skaguay over the White Pass to Iyake  Bennett. The material for construction has already been purchased and  as soon as it arrives at Seattle the engineer will go north and begin work.  The right of way has been secured.  The road will be completed by May 1,  so enthusiastic gold seekers should be  patient until that date.  A Iyiberal convention will be held in  New Westminster on October 6. The  object is to organize a provinciarliberal association.  ,���___ ���,  j SMITH & McLEOD,  S  t  r  A  m  ,T  e  t  T  I  A  ;  A  ���  V  B  i  V  ��� e  *  T  O  A  ���  T  O  Proprietors of the  VERNON   SAW,  PLANING   AND  /nOULDING TRILLS  Sash and Door Factory at Vernon.

While the officials'of the  road probably know their business best  one would almost think that a conservative institution like the C. P. R.  would look rather to a permanent investment than rushing- after a portion  of large but necessarily brief business  of the Klondyke country. Take the  Boundary Creek district for instance.  The officials of Canada's national line  must know that between Penticton  and Boundary Creek there are thousands of tons Of ore to be handled, that  there are permanent mines, that there  are thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of trade to be transacted  annually, yet they .flirt, with governments for subsidies, they defer railway  construction from year to year and  leave the district handicapped for want  of transportation facilities. It looks  as if even staid railway men are affected by stories of the fabulous wealth of  ���a far distant country as well as the  ordinary goldseekers. It will cost less  to build and there will be more business for a railway between Penticton  and Boundary Creek than there can be  in the Yukon district. The handling  of average grade ores and the business  connected with their production is infinitely more profitable for a railway  than the business in a placer country  although   the latter is fabulously rich.  Railway officials must be cognizant  of this fact but still they are slow to  build into the country full of lode  mines. The reason for this may not  be hard to discover. Railway builders  have become imbued with the idea that  governments intend giving fat subsidies to build into Boundary Creek and  they hesitate about commencing construction until these subsidies are  practically in their pockets. As we  have often stated, there is something  rotten about a system that will allow a  rich district to be practically tied up  until subsidy seekers have completed  the task of running about from one  government to the other begging for  public mone3'' to build a public road  for private gain.  A Mining Case.  An important mining case was decided in Kootenay last week. R. T. Daniel of Trail brought suit against the  directors of the Gold Hill Mining Co.  The directors of the company were  charged with having attempted to dispose of the Gold Hill mine to themselves by selling to a brother of the  president, thereby shutting out the  stockholders. Daniels was one of the  largest shareholders and instituted proceedings in the supreme court. The  case hinged largel3r on whether property owned by foreign companies in  British Columbia was controlled under  the laws of the country in which the  company was organized or the laws of  British Columbia. The decision in  Daniel's favor means that foreign companies doing business here are amenable to B. C. laws.  Mr. Robert Headley who is well  known in Boundary Creek is meeting  with every success as superintendent  of the Hall Smelter at Nelson. Everything is running smoothly and the new  blastfurnace whose capacity is supposed to be only 200 tons recently  smelted 272 tons of ore in one day.  0UKBARY  /& Aai&JL&I*^  ��TEL.,  ,f    <*:/"  Thos, Wake,    ���    Proprietor,  The hotel is centrally located and is a stopping  place for stage lines.

Owns  the "Golden Grown" mineral claim and has a bond on the "Galumet,'' situated in  Wellington camp, Yale District, B,G  Ore Was Stolen.  Ore  so   rich   that  it will arouse the  predatory instincts of daring- individuals should become almost as famous as  the  g"old   nug-g-ets   of   the   Klondyke.  Such ore is to be found on the dump at  the Reco mine on Myers creek.  '-"Was"  to be found  would  be more proper for  early last week Mr. Harrison who  has  the mine bonded found  that  nearly 40  sacks   of   ore   had   disappeared.    Mr.  Harrison appreciated   the  compliment  paid to the richness of the Reco ore but  as it is valued at  nearly   $5 a pound it  was impossible for   him   to  appreciate  the  disappearance of a small  fortune.  Provincial Officer McMynn was hotifi-  ���ed and he. at  once  instituted a  search  for the stolen property.    Officers Dins-  more, Gardom and Eawder joined in the  search   and  every  stable  from Myers  "Greek   to   Greenwood    was   searched.  The wasron was traced from  the   mine  to     McAule3r's   ranch   near   Midway.  After  dilig-ently  searching- the ranch  the ore was found  carefully cached  in  an  obscure  corner.    No    clue   to   the  thieves  has been discovered but it was  evident!}*   those    who   were well    acquainted with the richness  of the  ore  from the Reco mine.  After all, ore that assays thousands  ���of dollars to the ton is not without its  disadvantag-es and in the future Mr.  Harrison will probabljr keep it under  lock and key.  NAPOLEON'S VALUE OF VICTORY.  It  Finds   a  Striking   Counterpart in  Recent  Wcrld Triumphs.  Napoleon knew well the value of a  victory. After Austerlitz the world  .seemed   his.    Fame   invited,    fortune  favored.  everything-   stimulated  his  gr owmg-  aspiring- ambition. With  power he g-athered the fruits of victory.  And.so has it ever been. Success succeeds. A notable illustration of this  truth is furnished hy the great victories won at the World's Fair in '93 and  the California Midwinter Fair in. '94  b}r Dr. Price's Cream Baking- Powder.  Ever increasing- sales and popularity  have been the result. The people have  promptly' ratified the official verdicts  that declared Dr. Price's, for leaveniny  power, keeping- qualities, purity and  g-eneral excellence the --foremost baking- powder in all the world." Quite  as quickly- as the g-reat Emperor do  the3* know the viilue of a victory* that  means world-wide supremacy.  The Grand Forks Exhibit.
