P., at the public meeting- held in Greenwood when he  promised to Use his vote and influence in endeavoring-to  secure the Corbin charter, was an evidence of the strong-  feeling- which still exists in favor of having- transportation  facilities by the way of the Kettle river valley. One would  almost suppose that active.construction bv the C. P. R. and  the probability of securing- railway connection at an early  date would tend to satisfy the railway desires of the people.  Under ordinary circumstances such would be the case. But  ,. there are extraordinary circumstances connected with the  question of railways into Boundary Creek district. The  mineral resources of the district are pf an extraordinary  character. They are well worth the best possible methods  of treatment and the cheapest transportation. These can  only be secured by a railway running- through the natural  route into the district. Without discussing- the advantages  of competition it is folly to suppose that a railway which  has to be driven throug-h almost 100 miles of granite before  it reaches this district can afford to give as cheap a service  as a railway which can be built along- the open valley of  the Kettle river.  Sir William. Van Horrie dozing-in his luxurious office in  Montreal may see visions of a railway to the coast throug-h  Boundary Creek district, but at present the only object the  C, P. R. has in building- westward from Robson is to secure  the trade of Boundary Creek district. The cost of this road  will be something- enormous when the distance is considered. That cost has to be met. The C. P. R. does not build  railways for the fun of the thing-. IDvery dollar expended  on the Robson-Boundary Creek railway must produce substantial interest. With competition throttled by Dominion  Parliament, the doughty president of the C. P. R. will issue  his fiat that Boundary Creek must pay for the railway to  Boundary Creek and the mines of the district will be forced  by excessive freight rates into paying- for the construction  of an expensive piece of road���forced to pay tribute to the  selfishness of the C P. R. and the morbid sentiment of  those who shout" Canada for Canadians."  Nor is this the worst feature of the situation. The Canadian Pacific Railway Company unsatisfied with a, monopol}'  of transportation has decided to g-et a corner on<- the smelting- business. Of course it is announced with a flourish of  trumpets that the only object the company has in treating  ores is to afford the shipper the very best market for his  ores. A laudable object truly ! But somehow or other, history is ag-ainst such a contention. Railway companies engage in new ventures to make money and the C. P. R. is in  the smelting business because it is a profitable business.  I/et the C. P. R. erect its own smelters in the Boundary  Creek country, then give it full and absolute control of the  fuel, and it will be a difficult matter to find any one foolish  enough to venture his mone}' in a competitive smelter. He  would be at the mercy of the C. P. R. With a competitive  railway he would be able to compete with the C. P. R.  Those having charge of the Corbin charter should educate the people of the east to the importance of the principle involved. The eastern people do not understand the  question. The C. P. R. has branch lines into almost every  town and hamlet in eastern Canada. There is scarce^ a  business man in the Dominion but who has some connection  with the C. P. R. He does not understand the railway situation in Boundary Creek and votes for a C. P. R. monopoly  on personal grounds.  I^et us suppose that a railway company were applying to  the Dominion parliament for a charter to build a railway  across the international boundary line at Port Huron and  then through the rich farming land on the Canadian side  and let us further suppose that the application for this  charter was opposed by another railway company on the  grounds that the railway crossed the international boundary line and would enter into competition with its system ;  would the people of eastern Ontario tolerate the refusal of  a charter on these grounds?  It is not too soon to begin educational work in the east,  so that by the time parliament meets, public opinion will  force the members to retrieve the blunders of last session.  ���tip  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The regular meeting of the city council was held Monday evening in the court house. Mayor Wood presided and  Aldermen Paton, Kerr arid Phalen were present. Accounts  from Martin Bros., Rossland, for rails, $685.39 ; freight on  same $343.96, arid one for $5 for keep of prisoners, were  reported by the finance committee and ordered paid. Several tenders for street work were read. These were received  and filed.  Garland & Co. petitioned for a bridge across Boundary  reek below the sawriiill. A bridge here would straighten  the road near the bluff. The council decided to build the  bridge as soon as funds are available.  Communications were received from Gutta Percha  Rubber Co., wanting contract for hose ; from I. O. O. F.  objecting to proposed cemetery site ; W. Iv. Hogg in reference to the debentures and from the deput3r-attorney-gen-  eral stating there were no funds available to build a fence  around the court house. All these communications were  received and filed.  The Chief of Police was authorized to draw on the  treasury the sum necessary to meet the expenses of taking  prisoners to Vernon.    The council then adjourned.  BUILD   THE   SCHOOL.  There can be  no   excuse   for   the  delay   iri   building  a  school-house in Greenwood.    The  money was voted by parliament, the plans were prepared,   and   the   necessary  land  for a site has been donated by the Townsite Company. It is  difficult to  understand  why   the  department   should   allow,  children to be cooped up month after month   in   a  building  that is hygienically   and   otherwise   unsuitable  for  school  purposes, without  making   any   effort   towards   erecting   a  new building.    Under the most   favorable   circumstances a  new building cannot now be finished before the wet weather  sets in.    The department  of   public   works   is   assuming   a  grave responsibility when it forces a teacher   and   children  to live in an unsuitable building for five or six hours a day.  It is useless to suggest what might be charged to the building now in use, but certainly the health of the teacher   and  pupils   is   always   endangered   by    an    unsuitable   school  building.    Unless the contract for the new. school   building  is let at once,   the   trustees   should   close   the   school.    The  health of the children is of far   greater   importance   than a  few weeks' stud)'.  We hope that the tardiness in constructing the Greenwood school is not a specimen method introduced by the  new administration. Probably the chief commissioner of  lands and works has not heard of a Greenwood school ; but  his officers have, and he should hold them accountable for  the delay. s..  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES;  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  Mayor Wood is erecting- an addition  to his residence on Eong-  Eake  street.  The Barbara mineral claim, owned  by the Bealey Investment & Trust Co.,  will be divided into city lots in a few  'days.: ".  W. B. Davey and G. H. Chaffe, of  Grand Forks, were in the city, yesterday endeavoring- to secure a contract  for the waterworks.  C. E. Gault and O. G. Eaborie, of  Montreal, are visiting- the Kootenay  district with Jay P. Graves. Both are  interested in the Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill companies, and will probably visit the properties in Greenwood  camp.  There are but few real estate sales  to report this week. A. G. McCandless  of Victoria sold four lots on Government street in the, valley to an Old  Country investor for $1,250 net. These  lots were purchased by Mr. McCandless  about 15 months ago for $100 each.  J. W. Powell has g-one to the Coast.  It is reported that he intends entering  an action for damages in the Supreme  Court, ag-ainst the Townsite Company.  The alleg-ed cause for action arises  from the widening- of Government  street by which a few feet were taken  from Mr. Powell's lots.  THE   PLEBISCITE.  Next Thursda3r ' the   electors will be  asked   to   give   an   expression of their  opinion on   the   prohibition   question.  The voting- will take place in the court  house,   Greenwood,   and  A.  K. Stuart  has been   appointed   Returning- officer.  The electors will be   asked  to  give an  answer     to    the   following  question :  " Are you in favor of the passing- of an  actj prohibiting the importation, manufacture or   sale- of  spirits, wine, ale,  beer, cider and all other alcoholic liquors for use as a  beverage ?"    The plebiscite is general   throughout   Canada  and the vote will be taken at all points.  Polling booths have   also   been estab- .  lished   at   Cascade, Upper and Eower  Grand   Forks,   and   at   Midway.    All  those whose names appear  on the provincial voters' list are qualified to vote.  Fire   Department.  At the regular meeting  on   Wednes-  da}r night  J.  W.   Nelson   was   elected  assistant chief in the   stead of H. Don-  nough who has left  the  city.    A. Hallett was then promoted fromdieutenant  to captain of hose, and R. M. McEntire  was elected lieutenant.    The company  then   scaled   the   drug   store of Miller  Bros.', and   found that the ladders and  hooks       worked       satisfactorily.    On  Thur'sdaj" evening- the department were  summoned  by   Chief   Pierce.    All responded speedily save W. M. Law whose  intentions were very g-ood but lost himself   among"      wagons    and   plows   on  Greenwood street.    W. H.   Asquith got  the   reward   for being- first man   to respond.   W. M.

A Camp McKinney correspondent  /writes as follows. : "In your last Saturday's number you published ah article about cutting-timber. As this is a  matter of great interest for claim holders, I beg- to call your attention to an  article' which you published in your esteemed paper on December 25th, 1897.  It contains an extract of a letter to Mr.  W. A. Corbett of Summit; camp from  the Minister of Mines and helped me  considerably to settle disputes in this  line." '������/  The extract referred to follows:  /'You ask what rig-ht you have to the  timber on your mineral claim. I may-  state that you have the rig-ht to the  whole of the timber on your mineral  claim, providing- you are working it as  such, and if any sawmill company is  taking- the timber from your land you  have a perfect rig-ht to stop them and  should apply to the nearest magistrate  to do so."  The attention "of claim holders in  McRae pass who are being- robbed of  their timber by railwaj* contractors is  called to the foregoing article.  Runaway.  A report has reached the city that  the outgoing Marcus stag-e from Grand  Forks   ran    away   early     Wednesday  morning".  The  horses  became fright  ened, after passing Cascade City and  became unmanageable. They > tore  down the hill at lightning speed and  the stage was upset. One of the passengers whose name could not be ascertained was seriously hurt and the  others more or less injured.  King Solomon Group.  Mr. D.'C. Corbin's phenomenal good  luck is likely to follow him m the development of the King Solomon mine  in Copper camp. Work had only been  prosecuted a few days on the property-  when a body of rich copper ore was eti-;  countered. Experts who examined the  ore say that it is among the best seen  in the district and as the values are  high and there are good indications of  a large body the King Solomon is likety  to develop into a big mine.  Archer Martin, a Victoria barrister,  has been appointed a supreme court  judge to fill the vacancy caused by the  promotion of Mr. McCall to the Chief  Justiceship.

Kven an alderman ought  to appreciate the fact that when the  money secured by the sale of debentures is exhausted no more is available  for street improvements. A few thousand dollars cannot be borrowed from  the waterworks loan nor can it be secured from any other source this year.  Before excavating any more streets  the cost should be. figured. It would  be a very, serious matter indeed if the  work of digging a big- trench through  Copper street was begun and the funds  pinched out. The council ought to be  satisfied that they have accomplished  g-ood work when they suc-  ruining one street for business purposes. It would be a hazardous undertaking to begin siriiilar work  on anolher unless there is sufficient  money to complete it.  judg-ing from the expenditure so far  the money will not complete the work  contemplated last summer before the  by-law was passed. On March 7th  last Mr. C. 2$. Shaw, C. 1}., prepared  the following estimate for the council :  Estimate of the Cost of Street Grading  and Sidewalks, Greenwood, B.C. :  �� ���  Gold Street, grading-, S500. '"���''���'  Silver   Street, grading-. SI,000;   4-ft.  sidewalk  one side, S150. ,  Copper Street, grading-; Sl,500;   6-ft.  sidewalk  both sides, $450.  Dundee   and   Government    Streets,    g-rading-,  S3,000 ;' 6-f t. sidewalk both sides, S450.  Greenwood Street,  g-rading-, $1,800';   6-ft.  sidewalk both sides, $400.  Deadwood   Street,  g-rading-, $1,100 ;   4-ft.  sidewalk both sides, S150.  Long- Lake Street, .grading-, $800 ; 4-ft; sidewalk  both sides, $200.  Centre   Street,   grading-, S200;    4-ft.  sidewalk  both sides, $60.  Short Street, g-rading-, S200 ; 4-ft. sidewalk both  sides, $60.  Welling-ton Street, grading-, $500 ; 6-ft. sidewalk  one side, $100.   ���  Skylark Street, g-rading-, $1,000.  Total cost, $13,570.  Now this is an excellent outline of  the work which ought to be done for  the money borrowed. Unfortunately  however, the majority of the electors  growl upon the street corners and do  not watch the proceedings of the council. When that estimate was furnished by the engineer, had the ratepaj^ers  insisted in making it a schedule to and  a part of the by-law it would not be  possible to pour the greater portion of  the money into the Government  street  cut.  The ratepayers and particularly the  business men should now insist upon a  statement of the cost. They are entitled to know, how much has been expended so far, the approxmate cost per  yard of the work and if there are sufficient funds left to grade Copper street.  It is a serious matter to beg-in excavating a street without an assurance that  there will be sufficient money to complete the work.  THE   JEWEL   BONDED.  The Prospecting Syndicate of B. C.  has bonded the Jewel mine in Long  Lakecamp to an English syndicate.  The deal has been arranged by Mr.  Mahon of the firm of Mahon, Macfar-  land &   Mahon,   Vancouver.    It is un  derstood, that Adolphus Drucker, M.P.,  is interested in the company acquiring  the Jewel. Mr. Drucker has other  mining interests in the district including the Gold Bug and Hidden Treasure  in Deadwood camp. Messrs. Mahon  and Drucker are expected in the district in a few days when work will be  renewed on the Jewel. It is stated  that $25,000 has been set aside for the  further development of the property.  A large amount of   work   has   been  done on this property.    The Jewel and  the    adjoining    property   the   Dinero  Grand were bonded by the Prospecting  syndicate    from. Messrs.     McArthur,  Shonquist, Dittmer, Bosshart and Garland.    The   syndicate   began  work in  January 1897.   'A   hoisting-engine and  boiler were   installed  at the  property  and a double compartment shaft sunk.  At  120  feet  drifts  were  run for over  300 feet.    An upraise was run from the  120 foot level to the old Dinero Grande  shaft.    Other work   has  been  carried  out.    The   ore  is   very  rich.    Several  shipments have recently been made to  Trail and other smelting points.  RETURNED   FROM   BROOKLYN.  W. T. Thompson returned on Thursday from Nelson, B.C. He came in  over the Brooklyn tote road which is  completed to Cascade City. This road  is a conveniennt way of reaching- Nelson and Rossland. Mr. Thoriipson was  driven by C. B. Comstock. They left  Brooklyn at eight o'clock in the morning and reached Grand Forks before  five in the afternoon. The only difficulty in traveling over the road is  meeting the many teams hauling supplies to the sub-contractors. As the  road is narrow in many, places it is*  often difficult to find a turning off  point. '  Mr. Thompson was over in connection with a mining deal which is being  negotiated. .  About a week ago, Messrs. Naden &  Haas started work on the Red Rock  claim in Greenwood camp. The ledge  has been stripped and high values secured. An average assay gave $32.80  in gold. .The Red Rock is south of the  Knob Hill.  It is reported that a large number of  Italian laborers are on their way from  Brooklyn to work on contracts along  the North Fork of the Kettle river.  J. T��. Boss and Dan Mann returned  to Greenwood camp on Thursday last.  They made a flying trip east as far as  Winnipeg last week.  The only line of Boots and  Shoes in  town at Iv aw & Co.'s.

"All who  are  familiar  with  the  good results derived from the  mineral:  -exhibit  at last  year's fruit fair will  readily appreciate  the  importance  of  this movement which  brings  together  /the prospector, the miner,, the "investor,^  and all who may be seeking  information concerning the  mineral wealth of  the great Northwest.    The  managers  undertake to receive  all  shipments at  the Spokane depots  and see  that  the  same are properly placed on exhibition  in the mineral department of the  fair,  and due credit given to the  camp  and  the consignor sending  the  same.    Intelligent and united effort on   the  part  of all interested in the success   of  this  movement will make  the  exhibit  one  that every prospector and  miner  may  be proud of.    All specimens  should be  carefully labeled and wrapped in paper  and forwarded  to  reach  Spokane  not  later than October 1st, and  should  be  addressed * W. A. Stuart,  Supt.

Construction work on the C.P.R. is  now under way nearly the entire distance between Cascade and Robson,  and for a considerable distance west of  Cascade.  Contractor Welch's outfit arrived on  Saturday and began work on four  miles of heavy rock work immediately  .east of town.  P.Burns, who has the contract to  .supply Messrs. Mann, Foley Bros. &  Earsen with fresh meat, is now supplying the local market.  A steamboat is now plying on Christina lake, having been brought in from  Arrow lake.  Owing to a scarcity of lumber, building is greatly retarded. At least a  .dozen large buildings are under contract to be constructed as soon as the  necessary material can be obtained.  Mr. McDuff, superintendent of the  street work has been called east on  business. He resigns his position to-  ,day. It is unfortunate for the city that  Mr. McDuff is forced to go as it will be  a difficult matter to secure as competent a man to superintend the work.

A prospector at present working on  the streets of Greenwood recently took  rather a novel way to secure a bounty  on coyotes. While in the hills he succeeded in capturing ten young ones.  These were taken alive to the government office at Midway and the bounty  demanded. Recorder McMynn informed him that no bounty could be paid on  live coyotes. n The prospector then took  the young coyotes behind the government office and killed them. Here-  turned the heads and the bounty was  paid. Unfortunately for the prospector he had not paid his poll-tax and the  greater portion of the bounty money  wa.s taken from him for this   purpose.  pleted but it is the intention to erect a  substantial block. Figures are now  being prepared for a stone building  and if the cost is not too much, it is  probable that the building will be of  this material. The block will have a  50-foot frontage on Copper street.  gies.  A   Handsome Building.  The Bealey Investment & Trust  Company and Mr. J. P. Flood are joining forces for the purpose of erecting  a handsome block on Copper street  next to Gulley's furniture store. The  details of the building are not yet corn-  No Meeting.

An   Ottawa   correspondent   writes :  " The spontaneous expression  of sympathy which has  been   called forth by  the terrible disaster that has  befallen  the  city    of  New   Westminster   is   a  strong proof of.the growth of that bond  of common interest that is yearly���'more  closely   uniting  the  widely separated  provinces  (5f  the   Dominion,   and   the  manner  in   which  substantial   assistance is following that first   expression  of sympathy indicates that the feeling  is a genuine one.    It is withiri the memory of all but the youngest of  our citizens,     when   British   Columbia    was  scarcely thought  of  as  a  part  of-the  Dominion,  and one could only reach it  by-way of the Pacific  Ocean, while its  citizens spoke of.the rest  of  the country as  though  it  was a  foreign land.  It is not the first time that the cities of  the coast have met with   dire disaster,  and have risen  from their ashes with  marvellous vitality  and    there   is  no  doubt that New  Westminster will give  yet another  example  of the magnificent staying  and  growing  powers  of  our glorious west."  FAIRVIEW  MINES.  Mr. George H. Maurer, managing  director of the Smuggler mine at Fair-  view, writes as follows under date of  August 22nd, to Toronto parties :  "Since my last letter we have started  a drift on the 50-foot level, and on Friday last we struck it  rich.    The  vein  here is seven feet  wide  and  makes  a  great  showing.     Smuggler needs  no  new strikes to make it  a  grand  property, but we are all very  much  elated  over the fact that wherever <we  break  ground the ore is  rich   and  plentiful.  We are only working a small crew until such time as the  tramway  is  completed.    Then   the  ore  will  go  direct  from the chutes in the workings to the  grizzly at the mill without being handled.    The excavations and stone walls  for the mill are about finished and the  building is being raised.    In about two  weeks it will be enclosed, and by October 20th  the  stamps  should  be  dropping.     Our   mill   foundations   are   in  solid rock and the battery pit is as fine  as any on earth.   Fairview is enjoying  a new lease of life  since  operations at  the mill site were begun."  Mr. Frank Oliver, assistant general  manager of the British America Corporation, has just visited this district.  He was much pleased with his trip and  anticipates this will eventually prove  a good camp.  Work is going on at the Stemwinder,  Smuggler, Morning Star, Gold Dust,  Western Hill and other properties.  A Royal Commission.  His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor,  has been pleased to appoint Chief Justice McColl a commissioner, for the  purpose of making an enquiry into the  circumstances connected with the payment of certain sums under contracts  entered   into  for  the   performance  of  certain works in connection with the  construction of the new parliament  buildings.

GAMP   McKINNEY.  The recent rich strike on the Waterloo, the sale of the Cariboo mine to a  wealthy eastern company and numerous promising- finds have attracted a,  great deal of attention to Camp McKinney. Mining- men''who left their  McKinney propertiesundeveloped are  now making preparations to beg-in  work./ There is a renewed activity  about the place and this winter promises to be the busiest in its history.  Among- the properties likely to come to  the front are those owned by . Hugh"  Cameron, one of the first residents of  , the"' camp arid who has unbounded  faith in its mineral richness.  The accompanying- cut g-ives an excellent illustration of the works at the  Cariboo mine before recent alterations  Were made. The Cariboo itself is sufficient to make a reputation. It is the  second largest dividend paying mine  in the province and under the new  management ��� will be worked with redoubled vigor.  Regarding- the reported sale of the  Waterloo the Spokesman says:  -'It is practically settled that the  Waterloo claim in Camp McKinney,  upon which the recent remarkably rich  strike of free gold-was made, is to pass  into the hands of a Spokane company  to be called the Waterloo Mining &  Milling Company. The property lies  with only the Wairton claim f intervening between it and the Cariboo group,  upon which the Cariboo company is  working-and paying regular dividends  from ore extracted. It is said that the  Cariboo vein runs directly through the  Waterloo and that the recent strike of  rich quartz is made upon the Cariboo  lead where it crosses the property.  Among-the gentlemen who will be  interested are James Morioghan, M. M.  Cowley, Edward O'Shea, John Port-  eors, William O'Brien, P. Cunningham, J. A. Rockwell and A. C. Jamie-  son. The original owners of the property, Mrs. Finnegan, Thos. Graham  and Joe Murphy, will retain a three-  tenths interest in the company. The  capitalization will be   1,000,000  shares  of a par value of 10 cents. Dr. J. F.  Reddy, who has a bond on the property  is engineering the organization of the  company. ������';.'���..-''.  Dr. Reddy returned from a visit to  the property the other day, bringing  with him a sack of samples of the blue  quartz encrusted with masses of gold  visible to the naked eye. He has a  large quantity of the specimens in his  office, where they are the center of attraction for mining men. He has to  keep them under lock and key, so valuable are they and so much coveted.  One piece has a patch on one side  about an inch and a half long and an  inch wide which is one yellow crust of  the bright metal. It is estimated that  there is over $20 worth of gold in sight.  Other specimens are much broken,  with pieces of quartz held together by  little wires of gold.  " The lead is widening- as we sink on  the property," said Dr. Reddy last  evening. ''We were in seven feet of  the rich blue quartz when I left. The  rock is hard but breaks well when  blasted. We are working within 1,500  feet of the present workings on the  Cariboo. The Waterloo is a square  claim with the lead running through  its center. The Cariboo claims are the  old oblong ones and are located across  the vein..''  GLADSTONE.  Gladstone, the railway town at the  entrance to the Burnt Basin mining  district is growing.  Several stores are already on the  ground and others corning. Grant  Bros., with a $2,000 stock, are putting-  up a 24x30 building and are already doing business. S. McOrmond is also  getting ready in a structure of the  same size. An offer of $40,000 for the  Johnny Bull group of claims, only a  mile from Gladstone, has been made  by the British America corporation,  and it is thought it will be accepted.  Messrs Dorsey and Wisner have the  only hotel at Gladstone, and are catering- most successfully* to the constantly increasing traveling and freighting  trade.

Coyle, district passeng-er  ag-ent has issued a circular g-iving-  eft'ect to special rates in connection  with the New Westminster exhibition,.  The rate from Penticton is $16.05.  Throug-h tickets at a corresponding-  low rate ma3r be purchased from D. R.  McElmon, Greenwood.  These rates are exceptionally low, in  fact the.Canadian Pacific Railway has  been more liberal in its endeavor to  foster and make successful the Provincial Exhibition to be held in Westminster than the railway companies make  for similar exhibitions held in eastern  Canada. It is expected that the attendance from the interior will be veiw  larg-e. The rate is made as an experiment, and heavy ticket sales will no  doubt cause the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to treat future Provincial exhibitions in like liberal manner,  hi addition, the railway company  has arrang-ed for   the  free   transporta  tion of exhibits. Shippers of exhibits  will pay regular rates to New Westminster, and providing- same do not  chang-e haiids they will be returned  free to starting- ooint and the exhibit-  ors refunded, charg-es paid into New  Westminster.  STREET   WORK.  Superintendent McDuff had a force  of over SO men on the street during- the;  week and a large amount of earth was  moved. The greater portion of the  work was done around Rendell's corner  where an eleven foot cut is being-  made. The work has made the streets  impassable at this point and Government street business men are scurrying- for other quarters. The postoffice  too is unreachable.  The rails for   the   tramway   arrived  on Monday but owing" to the   delay   in,  securing- trucks the track was not laid.  The cars are  being-   made  by  Messrs.  Coates and McDuff.  The earth from the excavation is being- placed on Government street below  Aid. Phelan's residence. A g-ood  grade is thus secured to the valley. A  culvert has been, built underneath the  street to carry off surface water.  Aid. Galloway left for Vancouver on  Saturday last. He will order pipe for  the waterworks and is expected back  in a few days.  A   BIG   MEAT   FIRM.  Messrs. Burns and Wilson the well  known wholesale butchers of Kootenav  were in the city on Saturday last.  They have boug-ht into the Kettle River Dressed Beef and Provision Company and in the future the two big-  butchering- firms will join forces.  Messrs. Burns and Wilson boug-ht the  lot and building- at the corner of Greenwood and Government streets which is  now being- used for a butcher shop.  They are also neg-otiating- for the purchase of other lots in the city. The  firm has secured the contract for supplying- meat to all the railroad contractors between Robson and Midway and  this in itself will make a big- trade in  meat. Mr. J. P. Flood will remain  liianag-er for the company in the Boundary Creek district.  , ��� Awarded  Highest Honors���World's Fair,'  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

The Opposition newspapers cannot  do themselves nor their party any  good by screeching as soon as a civil  servant is dismissed. It would be a  very inferior service indeed that allowed no dismissals. Civil servants are  not all perfect, ��� and it is reasonable to  suppose that a new government is  likely to discover the incompetents  and the unfaithful. The Semlin government have so far made but few dismissals, and the unprejudiced concede  that.all these dismissals were justified.  In fact the Semlin government would  be lacking in its duty to the public did  it not dismiss other officers who were  hoisted into positions for which they  were not qualified.  The regulation of the civil service is  a very difficult matter.  We are opposed  to the spoils  system.    It  is   a  system  popular with those who are  in  politics  for self interest.    But   the   spoils   system is one thing and   the dismissal  of  an incompetent civil servant  another.  Because  the  Turner   government   allowed-an incompetent official to remain  in office and that official   is  dismissed  by the new government,   it  is   absurd  to raise the cry that the spoils  system  has been introduced.    The competency  of the official is the difficult matter  to  decide.    It is often gauged  by  public  opinion, and public opinion   is   always  more or less  prejudiced. . A   civil  servant who knows his business and looks  after   it;   who  does   not   interfere   in  party politics and has shown no prejudice against present employers, should  be allowed to remain in office, irrespective of the  party   in  power.    But  the  political heeler who has been placed in  office as a reward for political services,  who does not discard his  politics when  assuming office,  the   incompetent   and  the   untrustworthy,    should    be   summarily   dismissed,   regardless   of   the  howlings of the Opposition press.  D.   C.   CORBIN.  In the current number of the Northwest Magazine of St. Paul, Editor 10.  V. Smalley pays the following tribute :  "I hope that Mr. D. C. Corbin of  Spokane, in retiring from railroading-,  takes with him a competency. He is a  man of energy, courage, and mental  capacity, and as a developer of new  regions he has made a mark in Idaho  and Washington, and also in British  Columbia, which will cause him to be  long remembered.  " When he began to build his railroad to the Coeur d'Alenes, there was  absolutely no way of  getting into that  region except over a bridle trail or by  poling a boat up Pritchard creek from  the river. He afterwards opened the  Trail Creek and Kootenay mining- districts in British Columbia by building  the Spokane Falls & Northern railroad.  As a promoter of leg-itimate transportation enterprises, he took a high rank.  He did not build railroads to speculate  in their stocks, but to develop the  country where he lived."

JAMES D, SWORD, Manager,  Branch Office, ROSSLAND, B, C  WALKED   THROUGH   THE   JAIL.  Hugh McCallum, arrested last week  charged with theft isvnow a free man.  McCallum walked through the jail.  This was not a difficult thing to do as  it was built on plans furnished by the  late government. The jail building is  deficient in every thing excepting ventilation. There is plenty of that. The  fresh breezes from the hills, the dust  from Government street and every  thing else that floats through the air  pass in and out through the cracks in  the walls.  McCallum was awaiting  his preliminary trial.    Sunday was  a warm day  and he was allowed outside  for a short  time.    There is no yard and  no   fence  around the jail.    McCallum  picked up  a wrench somewhere and secreted it in  his clothes.    About  four  o'clock Monday     morning    he   began   using   the  wrench.    The jail doors   are not built  very strongly and   soon   gave way   to  blows from the wrench.    McCallum invited McMillan who   is  awaiting  trial  to join him but McMillan declined with  thanks although the way was clear for  him   to  escape.    The  last seen of McCallum he was striking for the land of  the free.    He called at Roy's  ranch at  about five o'clock and   had  a  drink of  milk.    There  is  no  guard at the jail.  The provincial  government has had a  fit of economj* and are   endeavoring to  run the affairs of state without an officer to look after its valuable buildings  at  Greenwood.    The   city   is scarcely  big enough to afford to employ a guard  to  watch   prisoners   and   the   present  officers have sufficient to do elsewhere.  McCallum was in Greenwood for several weeks. He worked as a laborer  for several days and then started to  indulg-e in strong liquor. The spree  ended up by his stealing blankets and  a rifle.    He was arrested  Friday even  ing.  Constable Pearce started for Grand  Forks on Monday morning. He returned on Tuesday without McCallum.  DEATH   OF   MRS.   CURRIE.  T3*phoid fever claimed another victim on Friday the 6th inst. in the person of Mrs. Alexander Currie who died  after two weeks' illness. Mrs. Currie  made a brave fight against the disease  but notwithstanding the constant attendance of Doctors Jakes and Foster,  death came about five o'clock in the  afternoon.  The death is a particularly sad one.  Mrs. Currie was only eighteen years  old the day previous to her death. She  had been married about 16 months and  leaves the husband and a child. Mrs.  Currie was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  H. Huff of this city who with the bereaved husband are receiving the sympathy of their many friends.  The funeral which took place Saturday afternoon was very largely attended. Mrs. Currie made a dying request  that her remains be interred on the  knoll overlooking the town of Midway  and her request was carried out. The  services at the home and grave were  conducted by Rev. Thos. Oswald. The  pall bearers were Messrs. Thos. Hardy,  W. S. Keith, Hugh McKee, R. Evans,  N. Lamont and W. M. Law. There  were many beautiful floral offerings.  ELECTRIC   LIGHT   FOR   GREENWOOD.  The Greenwood Waterpower Company are quietly making preparations  to harness the water power at Boundary Falls in order that they may be in  a position to generate electricity for  power and light purposes. The company have a force of men at work constructing a big dam above the falls.  This dam is about 75 yards above the  falls. It is being built in a narrow  canyon through which the creek rushes.  Both sides of this canyon are of solid  granite which juts out in front of the  dam making a strong buttress against  which to build.  In order to be able to work expeditiously in the river bed a temporary  dam has been constructed above the  permanent dam. From this temporary  dam, the water of the creek is flumed  beyond the workings. The permanent  dam is 62 feet across the river bed. At  the base it will be 28 feet wide. It  will be 25 feet high and 6 feet wide at  the top. It is being built of heavy  square timbers and stone. Over 200  tons of stone will be placed in the center of the dam. This dam will be  water tight forcing the body of water  over the top. The company thus secures additional power. It is expected  that b}* the time the water passes over  the falls,   240   horse power is  secured.  It is the intention of the company to  build their power house immediately  below the falls. This will be done as  soon as the dam is completed.  The Greenwood Waterpower Company is a local concern, Mayor Wood  and Aid. C. Scott Galloway being the  principal shareholders. The company  is incorporated by a provincial act.  BUILDING   BOOM.  There is a great demand for carpenters in Greenwood. Last week Contractor Coates was endeavoring to secure sufficient carpenters to rush Rendell & Co's. building but had great  difficulty in finding the desired number. Good progress was made with  the building however sand although it  was only started last week Rendell &  Co. are preparing to move. The building is a two story 50x25 feet. The upper flat will be used for offices.  The walls of Rendell & Co's. bonded  warehouse the first stone building in  Greenwood will soon be completed.  The building will be almost as cheap  as a frame one and it is rather surprising that more stone buildings are not  constructed in the city when there is  plenty material close to hand.  John McKenzie is erecting a neat  cottage on Government street in the  valley.  Mr. Powers has decided to start his  sawmill again. It will be situated on  the old site about 5 miles below Greenwood.  The Bealey Investment �� & Trust Go.  intend erecting a large block on Copper street next to the butcher shop.  Work will begin shorth*. In the meantime Manager Naden is looking round  for a building before the bank is left  in mid air by the Government street  cut.  The new brewery at the head of Government street is nearing   completion.-  The company in charge intend installing a large plant.  Tenders are being called for a 300-ft.  tunnel on the Rawhide, in Greenwood  camp. The Rawhide was bonded last  week for $40,000 and considerable work  is to be carried out on the property.
