Vol IV,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY,   SEPTEMBER  3,  1898,  104  No. 26  I \ 'Mill Wl 1 Willi I  I  hH  A   Description of the Best Developed Mining  Property in the District,  A Large Amount of High Grade Ore Awaiting  Transportation Facilities,  Those interested in the development  of  the  Boundary  Creek district have used every possible argument in endeavoring to convince the men who controlled  the  railway destinies of Boundary Creek, that, there were sufficient inducements   to   immediately build  railways   into   the   district.  Boundary Creekers have become adept railway promotors.  They had right   on   their  side.    They showered facts upon  the hard hearted, cold   blooded,   calculating  railway   magnate.    They arranged their briefs with considerable ability  and succeeded at all events in convincing the skeptical that  Boundary Creek district was one of magnificent and varied  mineral resources���a district that was well worth   an   effort  to secure its trade.    While the reasons advanced in favor of  -early transportation facilities were as varied as the mineral  resources themselves, the argument which silently appealed  to   the railway builder with the greatest cojency is the ore  dump at the B.C. mine. Three long, evenly arranged piles of  first, second and third class   ore,   leading   from   the   shaft  house, are mute, but  powerful  inducements to the railway  men.    The latter don't enthuse over  prospective   business.  They weigh and   measure  and  calculate  their business by  visible pounds and inches.    The writer informed Mr. Campbell Sweeney, the manager of  the Bank of  Montreal, that  the  B.   C. had nearly   2000   tons   of  high grade ore on the  dump.    " Do they want to borrow   any money on it?"   was  the answer.    As it is with the bankers so it is with the railway man.    He speculates not upon the glorious possibilities  of what is still uncovered   but   upon   the   actual amount in  sight.  The story of the B.C. told in all its details with sidelig-hts  thrown upon it would be more interesting than many of the  popular novels. Since the time when John Keough sold a  cow for $10 in order to get enough money to take him from  Colville to Summit camp, until last week when Messrs. Harrison and Barchard paid the same John Keougii $27,000, the  final payment on a $60,000 bond, the B. C. has been the  basis for some interesting mining history.  The B. C. is a wonderful property, Its location is not  like that of any other big property. You take the wagon  road from Greenwood, you see location posts and mouths of  tunnels and shafts on the hillsides where outcroppihgs of  the ledges told the prospectors that there was ore underneath. You pass the E)mraa and Oro Dinero and numerous  other claims and you come to a level stretch of country ; a  hill is seen a mile beyond and' you come to the conclusion  that the B. C. must be there. You are naturally surprised  when a clearing is seen in the woods and you see ti|Don this  level plain, a large shaft house, neat houses and three substantial ore dumps. It is said that the B. C. when located  , was considered a "wild cat." Then Mr. Keougii and his  sons took lunch on the ground one day and talked about  their Summit camp locations. More to satisfy the spirit of  restlessness than anything else they began excavating  underneath the long grass and uncovered a ledge of rich  copper ore.    The locator   of  the   claim was away.    He was  offered $400 for   his   property and  he  gladly  accepted  the  offer.    The Keoughs went to work.    They found ore all the  way from the grass roots.    Their shaft  was   in   solid   ore.  Mr. McEwen, representing the Mines Selection Company of  L/ondon,   England,   visited   the property and bonded it for  $60,000.    Mr. McEwen's principals  refused  to sanction the  deal ;   then Messrs. Harrison    and Barchard ��� rebonded the  property* at the same figure, the deal having been arranged  by G. H. Collins.    The bond covered only 12 months and as  theindividual payments were heavy Mr. Harrison  was determined  to   find out what was in the   property   as expeditiously as possible.    They began work  on August 27,   1897.  A plant was purchased and taken to the ground immediately.    The plant consists of a 60-horse power boiler, a   4-drill,.  compressor and a small hoist.    A force of 30 men  was  coh-  tinousky employed.    A shaft was stink 165 feet.    At  the 50-  foot level a drift was run along the ledge, there  being  400-  feet of drifts and cross cuts at this level.    The next level is  at 150 feet where there   are 300 feet of crosscut and   drifts.  The ore vein has widened materially.    It is 15 feet wide at  the 50-foot level and 70 feet at the 150 foot.    The  ore averages 10 to 12 per cent copper, 6 ounces silver and $3 in gold.  The shaft was started in solid ore which continued down to  the 50-ft. level ; from there for 70 feet there is but ltttle ore.  The shaft then continues in ore to the bottom.  There are three ore dumps at the shaft house. The first  contains over 1000 tons of high picked grade ore : the second  about the same amount of second class ore, while the third  is the waste dump.  The buildings are about the: best in the district. The  shaft house is a large, airy frame building . 25x70 feet.  There are also a neat bunk and boarding house ; Messrs.  Harrison and Barchard's residence and several miners'  cabins. A healthy,looking vegetable garden tells that the  soil above is as rich as the ore beneath.  As soon as the bond was paid last week the mine was-  closed down. Mr. Harrison believes he has 20,000 tons of  ore in sight. There is 2000 tons on the dump. He intends  to take it easy for a few months, buy a larger plant and  maintain a steady, continuous output as soon as the railway is-constructed���provided always that the owners do not  sell. Some very flattering offers have been made for the  property. It is just possible that the price will be made so  high that the present owners' will pocket the money and  give some one else a chance to make another fortune out of  the B. C.  The B. C. was located under a lucky star.    Everj'thing*  about the property has run smoothly. For this the greatest  credit must be given to the competent and careful management but nature has treated the mine kindly.. Last winter  when other mine owners were forced to stop on account of  water the B. C. hadn't a drop. A pump which was purchased with other machinery litis never been used. The mine  has been developed up to its present stag-e without an accident. There never was the slightest dispute between the  original owners and the bondholders. Everything- ran  smoothly and everybody is satisfied.  -V��.  or/,  ft?  James McGreg-or, Inspector of Mines, arrived in Greenwood on Sunday and visited the different working- mines in  the district. Mr. McGreg-or was making- a hurried trip  throug-h the Kootenay district and hearing of the accidents  at the Old Ironsides came immediately to inspect it and  other mines. He intends examining the Cariboo at Camp  McKinnev before returning to Kootenay. Mr. McGreiror  represented Nanamio in the legislature during- the last parliament. He was underground manag-er for the new Vancouver Coal Company for several years.

The members of the Greenwood  city  council have fallen   into  the evil ways  of most city   councils.    They  talk   too  much.    They have spent the two weeks  since the   bonds were sold   in   useless  discussions   concerning- the work to be  done.    Theyr have   . evidently     never  taken   into   consideration   that    they  know little about  street work and less  about waterworks.    They   employ   art  eng-ineer with the technical knpwledg-e  of these matters.    The  council is supposed to furnish the money and the en^  g-ineer supplies the brains.    The council has done its share   of, the work.    It.  , has   found   the   money.    Its members  should instruct the eng-ineer to   do  his  share     and   then   leave   him     alone.  I^eng-thy discussions are very interesting- but they take time and   time is the  important matter at present.    One day  now    is worth   three    in   November's  rainy or frosty* weather.    If  the   snow  flies with the street grading- half  completed 1he execrations of  the   unfortunate residents who will take their lives  in   their  hands   while   attempting-   to  navigate unfinished streets will   make  certain   members   of the council   wish  they had talked less before g-etting- the  eng-ineer to work.  MINE   INSPECTORS.  It is impossible for one mine inspector to do justice to the larg-e number of  working- metalliferous mines in the  province. If a mine inspection is a  necessity and most people think it is,  'the work should be done regularly and  thoroug'hly. There should be at least  three deputy inspectors appointed, two  for the Kootenays and one for.. Boundary Creek and Southern Yale.  The   operators  of   mines   have   not  ���g-iven ventilation   and   safet}* the consideration their   importance  demands.  Since the permanency  of  the  metalliferous   mines   of  the   province   is now  established a rig-id law   covering-   their  operation should be passed and enforced - by    mine   inspectors.    Everyman  working- in a mine   can   very   properly*  demand the best means for .protecting-  his life.    It is not enougii to g-ive   him  g-ood wag-es and get him 'to   trust in or  tern.pt Providence-while working- under-  g-round.    Providence   has   a   habit   of  helping* those who help themselves and  of g-iviug- the best chances of existence  to those who work   where   every possible safeg-uard has been adopted.

CHRISTIE-WILLOCKS.  Dr. J. Christie, the Dominion Veterinary Surgeon, returned from Scotland  -on Saturday last. The doctor was accompanied by his bride, having- been  married to Miss Helen Willocks on  Aug-ust 11th. The marriage took place  at Aden Villa, Glasgow, Rev. Dr. Watt  Anderton Parish, officiating-. Mrs.  Christie is a daughter of the late John  Willocks, farmer, Muirton of Benholm,  Kincardineshire, Scotland. After the  marriag-e ceremony the happy couple  took the train for Liverpool, embarking  there on one of the ocean liners for  New York. The trip across the ocean  and the continent was a most pleasant  one, the weather being-perfect.  Dr. Christie upon his arrival received the congratulations of his Boundary  Creek friends. The doctor was one of  irhe first residents of the district and  The Times joins with his many other  -friends in extending- its congratulations.  Dr. and Mrs. Christie have taken the  new Barnard cottage on Eong Eake  street where they will reside.  A   GAMBLING   CASE.  A moral reform wave  struck Greenwood this week.    L,ike. most  moral reform waves it originated not  because  of any desire to better the moral condition of the city but rather to satisfy a  -thirst   for   revenge.    There   has been  great  consternation   among- the   posthumous disciples of Soapy Sniith who  thrive but toil not in  Greenwood.    On  Saturday night Ford, the barber, started out with a  few  hundred  dollars in  liis pocket   in search of a   jolly   time.  He found the jolly time and then came  to the conclusion   that   he was Denny  Clune   and   that he was the champion  driller of British Columbia.    He issued  a challenge to any or all drillers.    The  sure thing men  thought this.a golden  opportunity   to   get    Ford's     money.  They accepted his challenge for, a ten-  minute  drilling  contest, his opponent  being Schepster.    Ford  bet about $300  of  his money and the  sure thing men  were  happy.    Ford   sobered  up     and  went  into  training  on Sunday morning.    It was discovered that he  could  drill.    He retained the exclusive services of Jim Smith to sharpen his   drills  and    got   McEeod   to   turn   for   him.  Money on   Ford   began   to be  oifered  freely and the sports  got  frightened.  They were not sure they were going to  win.    Before the match   came off they  were  certain   they   weren't   going  to  win.    They paid a man about town $10  to complain to the  officers   about having a drilling  match  on   Sunday and  the contest  was  stopped.    The judges  decided   that  the  contest  should take  place at  eight  o'clock   Monday morning.    Ford was there but his opponent  and backers were conspicuous by their  absence.    Ford drilled   16}4   inches in  ten minutes   and   claimed   the match.  One of the stakeholders  paid him over  the money but the others refused to do  so.    Ford started in to lay  complaints  ���on   his   own     account.    On     Tuesday  morning   he   swore  to an information  charging   the   proprietors of the  Gem  Cigar Store with keeping   a  gambling-  house.    The case came up before Judge  Hallett in the police court on   Wednesday afternoon.

To read some of the Bastern papers  one would supixise that they knew as  little about mining as Mark Twain did  about farming when he undertook to  run an agricultural paper and advised  his readers to have their pumpkin trees  well propped as the crop was g-oing to  be exceptionally heavy. Recent^* the  King-ston   Whig   published the follow-  in o- interesting   item of news  One  of the most important strikes yet made  in Rossland camp has just been made  in the Virginia mine. At the 300 foot  level a 28-foot ore chute has been found  panning-out $150 a day."  The Honolulu.  F. R. McMahon of Rossland and John  McVicar and Alex Stuart of Nelson  were in the city this week. They are  arrang-ing* for the purchase of the Honolulu claim in Copper camp. A report  was current that the claim had been  sold for $10,000 cash but Mr. Riter, the  owner,   is   the   authority for the state  ment that the sale has not yet been  completed. The Honolulu is near the  Big- Copper and considerable development work has been done thereon.  Two Years Old. ,  The Boundary Creek Times is two  years old. This week's issue completes  the fourth volume and the 104th is-  o sue. The Times has been published  regularly since its inception and it is  quite possible that if Greenwood continues to grow as rapidly as at present  that the paper may celebrate its third  anniversary by being chang-ed into a  daily. We make our regular birthday  announcement in another column. It  is rather a mercenary one and contains  but little sentiment. It simply reminds those who had sufficient confidence in the Times at its inception to  believe it came here to stay and that  their subscriptions are again due.  Should  Act  Promptly.  The Post Office Department is exceedingly slow in establishing- an office  , in Greenwood camp. Some two  months ag-o the department decided to,  establish a post office there but the post  office inspector has so far failed to  make the necessary arrangement. As  there are several hundred men working in Greenwood camp it works a  considerable hardship for them to come  to Greenwood a distance of six miles  for their mail.  LOCAL   NOTES.  W. G.

III1;!}  .&  I   ���  ;>;:'J  THE   BOU N D A RY   CREEK   TI ME S,  THAT  redistribution  bill.  The more one reads the correspondence published in a special issue of the  B. C. Gazette, the more one is struck  with the peculiar methods pursued by  the late administration. It also shows  that the indignant protests of the outraged people of Boundary Creek and  Kootenay with reference to the iniquitous gerrymander had their influence  with the L,ieutenant-governor. In one  of his letters to IDx-premier Turner he  makes the following- pointed remarks  with reference to the bill:  "At the last session of the   Legislative assembly,   the Redistribution Bill  was brought  into the   Assembly without having-  been  explained  to me   by  yourself or the Attorney-General.    As  the formal consent of  the Lieutenant-  Governor is always g-iven and required  prior to the introduction into the Assembly of such a measure as the redistribution of the Electoral   Districts   of   the  Province,     the    Lvieuten ant-Governor  should be consulted in regard to it and  its   provisions,    and the effect of them  explained.    In the  short   time   at my  disposal   I was left to review   the bill  alone.    In   doing-   so,   not having-the  assistance of yourself or the Attorney-  General, I did not master   it in   detail,  but on noticing-  that one clause allowed voters from any part of the province  to g-o to Cassiar   and record their vote,  without it being- required to have resided even a day in the district, and knowing- that the Cassiar  Ejections   always  take place from a month to two months  after the general elections of the Province,   and   that   there  was nothing-to  prevent those   who had   voted   at   the  general elections   g-oing-, or being- sent  to Cassiar a month or so   later   to vote  there.    I. sent to you to give me an explanation.    You informed me that you  knew very little about the bill, that   it  was in the hands of the Attorney-General.    I then told you that  unless  you  eliminated the objectionable clause you  would endanger the sanctioning of the  bill.    Thereupon the Attorney-General  waited upon me, and he,  in the course  of representations   made  on behalf of  the said clause, justified it by alleging  that similar  conditions  existed   in remote   electoral   districts   of    Ontario..  This I knew of my own knowledge was  not the case, and I so informed the Attorney-General.    The   next day, after  an all-night session   of   the Assembly,  from which members vainly   opposing  this clause retired, as   a protest, in    a  body, the  Attorney-General  withdrew  the said clause.    But he did not explain  to me,   nor   did I know   at   that  time,  that while Cassiar was  being  granted  an additional member, having only 298  names on the voters' list, far more important and  populous  sections  of  the  Kootenay country were  given little or  no representation.    I was  subsequently appealed to by the people and  press  of the Kootenay   Districts not to sanction the bill, and  even   to  dismiss the  Ministry responsible for it.    Although  sympathising with their natural indignation, I did not  consider  the circumstances sufficient to warrant  so   grave  an action on my part.    It was, borne in  upon me,   however, from that time on,  that I was not being   advised, to quote  the words of Lieutenant-Governor Angers     "wisely,' disinterestedly     and  faithfully."    What  was  I   to think of  these and other proceeding's   then   and  thereafter taken in regard to   Cassiar,  a district  having   a special   section of  the Provincial ��lections Act governing  it, a section   unique, at least  in   these  days, for the way in   which it lends itself   to  manipulation   at the hands of  the Government and its agents."

The necessity for such an institution  is becoming- ever}' day more apparent.  We think however that the hospital  would be more likely to secure recognition from the government in the shape  of substantial grants if it were run as  a public institution instead of a private  enterprise. We feel confident that Dr.  Jakes would be quite willing- for a reasonable consideration to turn the hospital over to a board of directors appointed by the public,  The mine owners should be the first  to take this matter up. It is .more than  probable that their employes will be  those who will most frequently require  the use of a hospital. After all the  employers of labor have a greater' responsibility than paA'ing* the men so  ���much per day. -They should be the  first in looking* after the men's care  and comfort.  If an earnest effort were made to  unite all the people in the work of  maintaining- the hospital ; if a r'epre- .  senta.ti.vc Board of .Directors were appointed and the hospital leased from  Dr. Jakes ; if the public were responsible for the maintenance instead of an  individual, we think that it could be  kept running without being a severe  tax upon those who would contribute  towards its support/  Should the hospital be reopened  along* these lines we feel confident that  the j'-overnment will assist towards its  maintenance'by .-a substantial g-rant.  The matter is well worth another  effort. It is scarcely creditable to the  people of the district that it should be  without a place where the sick can be  properly nursed and treated while a  building- peculiarly well adapted and  built for the purpose could with little  trouble be reopened.  THE   CORRESPONDENCE.  The correspondence between Iyieu-  tenant Governor Mclnnes and Premier  Turner leading- up to the dismissal of  the latter is exceedingly interesting  reading. Here is the governor's reply  to the insinuation that his course was  actuated by a desire to see his '* son "  'Billy in the cabinet.   "'.'.  " You have allowed yourself-to make  certain    insinuations    therein,   which  mig-ht have been expected from a, mere  .'partisan, or from a certain   irresponsible section   of  the. press,   but which I  had not expected from you, and which  I,hesitate to attribute to you, althoug-h  over your sig-nature.    I  have   heard of  defeated   litigants   who   ascribed   the,  action or decision of a  Court to the.re-,  lationship existing  between the Juclg-e  and the Counsel appearing* before him,  but it is a  new  thing   to   me   that   a  Prime Minister  should insinuate   that  a Lieutenant-Governor's  action is due  to a relationship existing- between himself and a  public man  representing*   a  constituency in the   Dominion Parliament.    I  shall   make   no   rej)ly   to it,  other than to say that  since   the   13th  of July last. I have consistently and re- ���  peatedly intimated to you b'y letter, interview and action/that 1113* confidence  in. yourself and colleagues  as advisers  ���was gvone.    I could not let the fear that  my action, whatever it might be, would  be  subject to  peculiar  misrepresentation, tie my   hands, or deter  me   from  following*   such   course   as .my.duty, to  the people of the Province appeared to  demand.    You <��� end  your   communication by the extraordinary, request  that  I reconsider the dismissal given to 3*011  on the 8th of August  instant.    Such a  request,     emanating   from   you   after  what has transpired, and in the face of  the insinuations contained in the former part   of  the  same   communication,  betrays   either such   a  lack  of  knowledge and propriety on your part,or such  readiness to advise me to a venal course  of action,    as   to   finally  demonstrate  your unfitness to act   as   chief   adviser  to the   representative . of   the   Crown.  The 'prerogative of dismissal was exercised by. me'on. the Sth August instant,  when   yourself   and .colleagues,   by a  formal  demand   for  3rour resignation,  were relieved from your  duties   as'advisers by   me,   and   dismissed as members of my   Executive   Council.    Such  action   is   not   subject  to reconsideration." .  Harvest   Festival.  Rev. Thomas Oswald and the choir  ox the Presbyterian church have arranged for a Harvest Festival on Sunday Sept. 11th.

Extensive preparations are being  made at Cascade City to begin work on  this side of Christina Eake. Sub-contractors are getting their plants on the  ground and will shortly be hard at  work. Men are more plentiful now  enabling the contractors to devote  more time to the end of the line.  There are now between 25 and 30  sub-contractors scattered from Robson  to a point 25 miles west of Brooklyn,  and they are making excellent progress  with the work. It is believed that  .never before iu the his tor}' of railway  building in the northwest has there  '#. \n so much difficult and expensive  work in the same distance. Nearly all  of   it   is   rock   cutting-  of the   hardest  kind.  Porter Bros.,    McArthur &   Roberts  all well known in contracting- circles  have secured the contract for constructing bridges for the entire line. It is  understood that this contract includes  the putting* down of  some of the steel.  The contractors are already on the  ground and have started at work on  the first bridge, 200 feet high, near  Shield's   landing,   eight    miles below  Brooklyn.  The contract for getting out the timber and ties for the line was secured by  the Peter Genelle Mill Co., of Nakusp  and McPherson Bros. & Stout. Altogether not less than 5,000,000 feet of  this lumber will be required. Mr. Genelle has already built a mill about two  miles from Robson��� on the right of way  whence dimension timbers will be  hauled up as fast as needed. There  will be at least 300,000 ties used and  McPherson Bros. & Stout have established a mill some 15 or 20 miles out  from Brooklyn capable of turning out  40,000 feet daih-. Men are now distributed all along the line in numerous  camps getting- out ties. The uniform  price is 15 cents each, delivered.  J. W.

COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD CITY, B.C. ��  ^���f^zzszzzsxznx.  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  ***** t  j ���  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  Mayor Wood presided and Aid. Paton, Barrett and Phelan were present  at the regular meeting- of the city council held Monday evening-. Miller Bros,  and Dr. Jakes were granted permission to run a telephone line between  the hospital and drugstore. The clerk  was instructed to write the city ehgi-  j j neer requesting his whole ."time.until,  ;' waterworks and street work was completed.  The council discussed what should  be done regarding street work but took  no action excepting to adjourn until  Thursday evening.  The adjourned meeting of the city  council was not held on Thursday  evening, owing to the illness of Mayor  Wood and Aid. Galloway. A special  meeting is being held this (Friday)  afternoon.  BY   DAY   LABOR.  The council meet this (Friday) afternoon for the purpose of finally deciding upon a plan of carrying out the  contemplated civic improvements. It  is hoped that they will act in the interests of. the city and lose no time in  starting the work by day ��� labor. The  cost of the work is not the.only consideration. The council should adopt  such measures as will give the ratepayers the very highest return from  the money expended. It is scarcely  possible that anyone can believe that  a system which allows the importation  of cheap laborers who live in tents,  board themselves at less than $2 per  week, and leave the city as soon as the  o ''' "  work is completed, is' the best in the  interests of the city. City work should  be so carried out that every dollar expended gives a dollar's worth of improvement, and also buys a dollar's  worth of the necessaries of life. If the  council represent the people and public  opinion and are anxious for the best  interests of the city, they will decide  in favor of day labor.  The New School.  The Department of Public Works  should immediately take measures to  construct the new school building >in  Greenwood. The building used at  present is unsuitable for the large attendance. There are now over 50 pupils enrolled. The building to be constructed should contain at least two  schoolrooms as an assistant teacher  will be required at a very early date.  As the monej* for the building has  been voted the contract should be let  at once. The building ought to be  ready for occupation before the wet  weather sets in.    '  Strike   on   the   Golconda.  Messrs. Beath and Shields who have  a contract for a tunnel on the Golconda in Smith's camp yesterday struck a  ledge of rich copper ore. The Golconda is owned by J.

Mr. Haas expects that the  ledge on the Bruce will be struck in a  few days.  ^a��^i^@^!^^'.,  ��mt<ifti��,���,  The first Subscribers  ox xlie i * * * * * * * * * * *  are respectfully , >������,-,/,",  reminded , -,-,., v> , , ,  that this Issue. * ,,; , , \  completes the ���',., , ,V,  ��� ? ��� Second Year ��� ��� ���  of publication * , , ���;���.'# /  and ttiat ���� ��* * * * * * , * *  their Subscriptions , *  ARE NOW DUE,, ,  Boundary Creek P. & P.

He went as solicitor for  the Greenwood Waterworks Company  to look after their interests in connection with a water record dispute which  is to be settled b}* Water Commissioner  Norris at Vernon next week. The  Greenwood Waterworks Company have  a record for the water of Boundary  Falls. The Dominion Mining, Development and Agency Company have an  option on the Boundary Falls Town-  site and are asking for an interim record. As the Greenwood Waterworks  Company have already commenced  work on their dam below the Falls and  intend using the water shortly they are  opposing the application for the interim record. Mr. C. A. Milbourne, Nelson, representing the Dominion Company was in Greenwood this week and  visited Boundary Falls.  A   Payment  Made.  A second pa3rment has been made by-  Messrs. McKenzie & Mann on account  of the Brooklyn bond. The payment  was made at Rossland last week by  Mr. Boss. Mr. Mann visited the Company's property this week, spending  several days in Greenwood camp. He  returned again to Brooklyn.  K. R. D..B.-& P. Co.

The company's store on  Copper street is now completed and a  branch has been opened at Cascade  City.  Lawn   Tennis.  On Tuesday afternoon, a championship tennis match was played on the  Greenwood court between Messrs. G.  R. Naden and D. C. McRae and Messrs.  Cousins and G. A. Guess. After an  exciting contest Messrs. McRae and  Naden won the two sets played. The  winners were presented with a mineral  claim upon which the assessment work  was due.  The  Mortgage   Tax  Will   Go,  The report has been  well  circulated  through  Victoria   during the past few  ���days   that  the  new   government   has  made an end of that portion of the revenue act commonly known as the mortgage tax.    Of course the action reported has not been taken,   and   could   not  be taken by the government, the advisability of abolishing the mortgage tax  being for parliament to  pronounce upon.    As Hon. Mr. Cotton put it,   " the  statement is  of course  incorrect that  the  government  has  done away with  the mortgage tax.    At the same   time  those   who   have been   paying- this tax  have  every   reason   to    congratulate  themselves upon not having  to  pay it  for another year���the  declarations   of  the  opposition   in   the   late campaign  making this a point of policy."

He  stated it was probable  that  the  company  would  build   a   local  system   in  Greenwood.  ]f-    f>n Saturday last, Percy Godenrath,  J\r��  the  Spokesman-Review,   called   up  his paper  and  Mayor  Wood  sent  the  following message over the wire :  Mayor Wood and Greenwood City  wish to express their, satisfaction in  having telephone communication with  Spokane and hope that it will increase  the good feeling between the cities of  Her Majesty the Queen and the United  States.  The   Spokesman-Review   replied as  follows :  Spokane reciprocates the gracious  sentiments of Mayor Wood and will do  all in her power to cement the friendship which exists with Greenwood and  other cities of Her Majesty the Queen.  The Review considers the connection  of sufficient importance to make the  following editorial reference : " Extension of telephone service with British Columbia cities brings them into  close touch with Spokane and the people of eastern, Washington. Spokane  is already looked upon as the southern  metropolis of the Slocan and Trail  mining.districts. In a friendly spirit  the mayor, of Greenwood recognized  this by expressing a gracious sentiment. Spokane is so identified with  the cities to the north that there is no  border line, and never will be."  The Review is quite right. There is  no border line ; but there is a tariff  wall which proves a barrier against extensive trade relations between the  mining districts in B.C. and the enterprising city in eastern Washington.  The residents of the mining district  like to go to Spokane to have a good  time. Spokaneites are always entertaining and hospitable. There is no  sentiment in business, however, and  the miners of British Columbia buy  their goods from Canadian wholesalers  rather than satisfy the exorbitant demands of a protective tariff. Under  present conditions Spokane is a metropolis south of Slocan and Trail,  rather than the southern metropolis of  Slocan and Trail.  THE   CARIBOO   MINE.  The annual meeting of the Cariboo  Mining Company was recently held in  Spokane. The report of James Mona-  ghan, the president and general manager, for the year ending July 1, 1898,  showed among* other things that the  mill had crushed 6770 tons of ore during- the year and that it has yielded  $121,270 in bullion and $17,943.64 in  concentrates. For the same period  during-the previous   Year,   the records  Hi ��� "���  �� flthe company show an output of 6742  tons of ore which yielded in bullion  $104,826.09 and in concentrates $13,513-  39. The showing is therefore that the  output for the past year was an increase of but 28 tons over that of the  previous year while the increase in  value of production was $20,904.06.  The report  further   showed   that   the  property had been equipped during the  year with additional niachinery comprising a hoist, compressor, three boilers, a Corliss engine, 10 additional  stamps, a new and complete concentrating plant and new pumps, all at a  cost of about $25,000.  The report of the treasurer showed a  balance of cash on hand of $28,500.  The shareholders decided to sell their  shares to the new Cariboo Company  recently organized, taking in payment  cash or shares in the new company as  the shareholders desire. A meeting  will be held at Camp McKinney on  Sept. 27th, to ratify the sale in this  province as , is required by the companies' act. The company paid $64,000  in dividends during the year.

Clune one of the pioneer miners  of Boundary   Creek is now   champion  driller of British   Columbia.    On   Sat-  urdby evening last he met and defeated A. D. McEeod the former champion.  The contest was a magnificent exhibition of strength and endurance.    Both  men   had  trained   for   the  event and  were in the pink of condition.    For fifteen   minutes   each   pounded the drill  without   any  slacking of  the   terrific  pace and both seemed.fresh at the end  of the contest.    McEeod is the stronger  'man   of   the   two   and   he   struck   the  harder blow but Clune struck more frequently and hit the drill  squarely getting the most out of every blow.    After  all   it   was   a   contest  of   the turners.  McEeod   and   Clune    are    so    evenly  matched that it  is difficult to tell   who  should have won had the}* both equally  good turners.    Bert Cousins who turned for McEeod did not make  si.  proper  estimate of the hard  granite in   which  they   drilled.     The    drills    bound   in  nearly     every     case,      and     Cousins  being   a    slighth*    built    man,      lost  ��� time in'struggling  to get   them   free.  On the other hand Al Mason who turned for Clune never made an error.    The  drill was turned regularly and   evenly  and it was on  the   bottom   every time  the hammer struck it.  The contest began shortl}* after eight  o'clock. C. J. McArthur was McEeod's  judge. C. N.Collins acted for Clune  while W. Hanna was referee. D. Ross  was appointed timekeeper, -and Ben  Fitzpatrick kept time for McEeod and  Alf Kelly for Clune. The rock was a  40 inch boulder of granite brought  from Anaconda and placed in position  in EePlahts hall. The floor was fairl3*  solid but the rebound lessened the  chances for record drilling. McEeod  drilled first. He swung'the hammer at  about 4S strikes to the minute. He  struck much heavier than his opponent  but the drills did not work well. At  the end of 15 minutes he had drilled  30 Y   inches.  Clune maintained an average of  about 55 strikes to the minute. His  blows were not so heavy as McEeods  but they were more evenly placed on  the drill. There was not a hitch in  Chine's 15.minutes.    Mason turned the  drills and changed them without causing, the slightest irregularity in the  strikes. At the end of 15 minutes  Clune had drilled 32% inches and was  awarded the contest.  The match was for $250 a side. Considerable money exchanged hands in  the. result, both contestants having  strong backers. The contest was  orderly and well conducted and the defeated were well satisfied that they had  been fairly treated.  The drills for both Clune and McEeod  had been sharpened by Jim Smith.  He did his work well. Every drill  stood the severe f,test and came from  the rock in good condition.  DISMISSED   THE   CASE.  Police Magistrate Hallett dismissed  the case against Provincial police officer Gardom last Saturday afternoon.  He was charged under the clause of the  criminal code dealing with cruelty to  animals. The trial furnished the large  number of spectators with plenty of  amusement. J. P. McEeod of Midway  appeared for the defense and A. S.  Black for the prosecution.  Aid. Phelan told all he knew about  the case. He thought Gardom. need-.  lessly spurred the horse. He noticed  blood on the horse's left side and on  Gardom's left foot. Mr. Phelan didn't  claim to be an expert horseman but he  informed Mr. McEeod that he was an  expert on groceiw and that if he wanted anything in. that, line he would recommend the,White Front Store.  A. S. Thomas proclaimed the right  to express his own opinion, Mr. McEeod to the contrary notwithstanding*.  He saw blood on the rig-ht side of horse  and on the right foot and spur. He  thought -Gardom was unreasonable in  his punishment. If he couldn't manage the horse differeuth* he should  g-ive him <-iway or sell him.  John Holmes an employee of Currie's  stable washed the blood off the horse.  He thought Gardom lost his temper.'  D. McDuff and T. O. Butler examined the horse after the incident. The3'  found a few small scratches on his side.  They were nothing* more serious than  fly bites. Mr. McDuff said the horse  had a viscious temper. He tried to run  into every building executing the  stable.    He   (McDuff)   was   forced to  drive him into his blacksmith shop with  a. club. '  Chief of Police Taylor knew Gardom  and his horse at Ehderby. Both had  equally bad tempers. The man who  sold the horse to Gardom congratulated himself upon having caught a sucker. Taylor wouldn't ride Gardom's  horse.  Alex Currie rode horses for fifteen  years. He saw Gardom's horse after  receiving-the punishment. There was  nothing serious. The horse wasn't badly punished. He didn't consider Gardom a good rider. He didn't think  think three year's training in the English cavalry would make him a good  rider. If he would ride bucking bronchos in B. C. for a dozen years, he  would probably know something about  a horse. Currie never" rode Gardom's,  horse but he could ride him and without spurs.  Mr. McEeod went into a learned dissertation on equestrian temperaments.  He claimed that what would be considered cruelty in one case might be reasonable chastisement in another They  claimed that this was a case of only  reasonable chastisement.  Police Magistrate Hallett said he  would dismiss the case. All the evidence went to show that the horse was  unmanageable. He hoped that every  one would show proper consideration  for dumb animals. He would not allow costs in this case.  Telephone Connection.  The telephone line was completed to  Greenwood on Saturday night. Foreman Gerow soon had an instrument in  Smith & McRae's store and informed  all stations that the line was ready to  do business with Greenwood.
