Vol. II.  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1897,  52  3 No, 26,  ��  l:X  MUNICIPAL   ELECTIONS.  HI} first election in the  city of  Greenwood has  been fought and the people have settled down  ~^to the humdrum of everyday life.    The fight  was not a very heated  one  and  engendered  no   ill-feeling-.     The   only   meeting-   of  the  short campaign was that held  in1 Rendell &  Co. 's hall on Friday evening-, when   a  large  audience   listened   to   addresses   from    the  Mayor-elect,  candidates  for   aldermen   and  others.    Duncan Ross was voted to the chair.  His Worship the Mayor, who was called upon for an address, said that as the meeting had been convened for the  purpose of hearing- the views on municipal affairs of the  candidates for the office of aldermen, he had come to hear  rather than to speak. He would, however, take that opportunity of thanking- the electors of Greenwood for the honor  they had done him in electing him without opposition their  first mayor and for the many congratulations and kindly  expressions of their goodwill he had received since his election. Coming to the business for which they had met, he  referred to the importance that attaches to the position of a  member of the municipal council. There exists the necessity for strict economy in connection with the affairs of the  city, but he'hoped that all would work together in that  unity which is essential to success in their efforts.  Mr. C. Scott Galloway, the first candidate to address the  meeting, said that they would have to carry out the business of the city in a straightforward, economical^and energetic way. There were several questions they would have  to deal with, one of the most important being that of water  supply, both for fire protection and domestic purposes.  This would, however, be better discussed in council than in  public meeting. With regard to street improvements,  whilst something is required to be done now to the streets,  he thought their permanent improvement would have to be  left to the next council, which will take office early in 1898.  The biggest and most important matter to decide was how  to get money to spend on the city. So far as he knew,  Greenwood as yet has no power to borrow money. He was  not aware how far the government controls their actions in  this matter. The question was one to be dealt with by the  council, but he thought little could be done during the  current year. c  Mr. J. Hamill thought the question of water supply should  be discussed publicly. The matter would have to be very  carefully dealt with, ways and means being fully considered before taking action. Dealing with the probable revenue the city would receive for a time, he gave figures which  showed the position approximately. They could not at first  expect to have a margin left above running.expenses. He  referred to the difficulty a mining town, no matter how good  its prospects, usually experiences in borrowing money. He  would be guided in this matter by the wishes of the ratepayers ; if a majority of them favored borrowing he would  support it but not otherwise. As to improvements he favored spending the revenue derived from taxes in different  parts of the city as near proportionately to what they contribute as possible. They were fortunate in being for the  present relieved by the provincial government of the necessity for providing police protection for the city. He would  like to allow taxes and license fees to remain much as they  now are, and to ascertain the wishes of the rate-payers in  the matter of borrowing money for public improvements.  As far as possible he would like to avoid going into debt  and would keep out of wild schemes of all kinds.    The coun  cil would be able to use its influence for good in advancing  the interests of the district, especially in connection with  roads and railways, and in bringing before the outside  world the importance and value of the mineral resources of  Boundary Creek.  Mr. Leonard S. Moulton Barrett agreed with much that,  Mr. Hamill had said. He would endeavor to keep down  taxation, and thought that whatever public improvements  were made should be permanent ; would largely favor con-'  centratirig their efforts in improving the part of the city  already populated ;������ and thought it early yet to introduce a  system of waterworks.  Mr. Archie McKenzie after pointing out the importance  of municipal affairs, expressed himself in favor of taxing  more heavily than residents absentee land owners who had  bought town lots for speculative purposes and who contributed little or nothing to the cost of public improvements.  He would take the sense of the ratepayers respecting water- ,  works, and discuss it with them how best to raise money for  carrying put such a scheme. He had nothing to add to  what previous speakers had said about public improvements  which he would like to see carried out to such an extents as  . was practicable, having regard to their limited resources.  Mr. M. J. Phelan considered the most important question  (was whether the city should borrow money or not. While  opposed to running the city hopelessly into debt he favored  borrowing money enough to bring in water for protection  against fire, but not for a house to house supply. He deprecated local sectionalism and said that he would vote for  expending money wherever necessary in the town, and like  many others he had come to Greenwood to make his home  and he had every confidence in its future. If all worked in  harmony the3r would make it one of the finest provincial  towns in B. C. He would support in engaging a competent  engineer to furnish complete estimates of the cost of the  proposed waterworks,; then let the council estimate the probable revenue, and if it could be shown that the scheme was  feasible and they would not throw the city back financially,  he would support it. The increased population they would  gain ere long would assist in paying the interest on a loan.  He was sure the townsite owners would do their share.   ���  Mr. J. W.'Powell would not favor borrowing money. He  thought the proposed waterworks unnecessary at present.  He had not found difficulty in insuring his buildings against  fire and for the present he could get water from Boundary  Creek. He was willing to be as liberal as any one, but he  thought the town too young to get into debt. Once in debt  it would be a hard job to get out of it.  Mr. G. A. Rendell had always been confident Greenwood  would be a good town. While he fully realized the necessity for water supply for fire protection purposes, he was  not yet in a position to express an opinion as to whether  they could carry out the projected scheme. For the time  the council will have all it can do to pass by-laws and other  necessary preliminary- work. For his part he had always  done all in his power for the benefit of the town and he  would continue to do so.  The mayor here stated that he wished it to be understood  that he intended to go for all he is worth to build up the  town, which he wanted to see go ahead. The council could  go into the question of public works, figure out their cost  and then if they found themselves able to undertake them,  to carry them out in a business like way.  Excellent short speeches were made by Messrs. 3��. Jacobs,  C. J. McArthur, G. R. Naden, I. H. Hallett, Thos. Miller,  Mr. Blizzard and others, but lack of space prevents their  remarks being reported.  THE EJECTION.  Prompt!}r at 10 o'clock on Saturday morning Returning  Officer  A.   S.   Black  opened  the    polling    booth   and  Mr.  -\T'  rr  L ��Wk.V THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  Ralph Smailes polled the first vote.  Up until four in the afternoon when  the polls were closed, the majority of,  the electors came voluntarily to the  polls, none of the candidates putting  forth any great effort to secure votes.  The register of votes showed that there  were in Greenwood 99 men qualified to  exercise their franchise at the first  municipal election and of this number  87 voted.  the result.  At four o'clock the polls were closed  and G. A. Guess and Duncan Ross  were appointed scrutineers. The ballot papers as they first came out of the  box would indicate that Mr. Barrett  was going to head the poll but he gave  place,to Messrs. Hamill, McKenzie and  Rendell. These three kept pace with  each other until the last when Mr.  Hamill secured the advantage and  headed the list with a vote of 71. For  him also was intended the only ballot  of the 87 that was considered spoilt,  the elector marking a cross over the  name instead of in the space on the  side.  The result was as follows, the first-  six being those eletced :  John Hamill.. R'l .......71  Georg-e Arthur Rendell 67  Archie C. McKenzie..... ..........  ...............60  L-. M.

William Powell! .......19  The result appeared to give general  satisfaction, for the friends of both the  victors and the vanquished joined in  the celebration which followed.  A POLITICAL SCHEME.  If those who ought to know are correct in their opinions, the provincial  government have succeeded iri inducing a wealthy corporation in the city  of Victoria to invest some of its money  in up country newspapers. The Kam-  loops Standard which boasts that the  provincial government is a conservative one ; the recent purchase of the  Rossland Miner ; the establishment of a new paper at Nelson and  sundry changes that have been made  in connection with other Kootenay  newspapers, are said to be results of  this scheme. It will be remembered  that previous to the last election Hon.  Theo. Davie, now Chief Justice, dropped considerable money in buying provincial papers. The present government are more fortunate if they have  succeeded in inducing millionaires to  put up'the cash.  More Building.  In addition to the building already  mentioned in another column of The  Times, Messrs. Olson & Phelan have,  decided to erect a large warehouse at  the rear of their store. They are receiving- some heavy shipments and  must secure more space. The Greenwood Mercantile Co. will also do some  building. It is their intention to erect  a stone foundation under their block,  giving- them larger space for their  goods. The contract for this work has  not yet been awarded but probably will  in a few days.   While Boundary Creek is a mining  district, the soil is very productive and  with irrigation produces some remarkable roots and vegetables. At Boundary Creek City they are enjoying  strawberry shortcake, the strawberries  being the second crop this year. Mrs.  Holbrook of the Providence hotel picked several pints this week.

The Nelson Tribune, in referring- to  Hon. G. B. Martin's speech at Grand  Forks, very clearly points out that the  Chief Commissioner's remarks placed  the government in a peculiar position.  When the famous railway bill was introduced, the government, vehemently  denied that the subsidy from Penticton  to Boundary Creek was intended for  Mr;. He in ze. After quoting- the Chief  Commissioner's remarks, the Tribune  says : ���   . v ...  " If G. B." Martin was truthful he  would have stated that when the premier announced his railway policy he  had not sufficient courage to say  whether or not F. Aug-. Heinze would  be allowed to retain both the land subsidy and the cash subsidy. He could  have informed the people of Grand  Forks that the legislature had no confidence in the government in its dealings with F. Aug. Heinze, and that for  this reason the majority in the legislature voted for the amendment moved  by Mr. Graham. In making the statement which he did at Grand Forks G.  B. Martin has put premier Turner in a  bad position. He says in short, that it  was the government's policy that  Heinze should have both land and cash  subsidies. He further says that the  legislature rejected^ the government's  policy. If this were so why did not  premier Turner resign?"  ', No objection can be taken to the  Tribune's observations except its acceptance of Mr. Martin's error that it  was Mr. Graham who moved the amendment. As we pointed out before, the  amendment was moved by Mr. Sword.  Money Must be Borrowed.  But little fault, could  be, found with  the   argument   used  by  a number  of  speakers  at  the public meeting to the  effect    that   the   city   should   borrow  no money, provided ,such a course were  practicable.    Under present conditions  however,  it  is   simply   impossible   to  conduct municipal affairs unless money  is borrowed on  the  credit  of the city.  According to the Speedy Incorporation  Act under which Greenwood was incorporated the council   may  levy and collect a road tax for the whole year, 1897,  in the same  manner  and  to the same  extent as if the Corporation had  existed from the first of January 1897.    The  g-overnment  may  return  to the city a  rateable part of the real estate tax collected  upon  property within   the city  limits but even with those very   indefinite plans  of securing money, the city  will not have  sufficient funds for ordinary current expenses.    Licenses heretofore issued shall be valid   until expiration of the period named in the same,  so no revenue except from new licenses  can be expected from this source.    The  aldermen should  at  once  realize   the  fact   that  municipal   government cannot be  carried  on   without funds and  one  of  the   first  acts  of   the   council  should be the  passage  of a  by-law  to  borrow money.    There is  considerable  red-tape connected with money by-laws  so that  if action is  taken   at  once, it  will be nearly three months before  the  city   is   in   a   position   to   go into the  money market to borrow.  The Railway;  The report that Heinze surveyors are  in the field and are determined to complete the work of surveying the line of  railway between Trail and Penticton  within the next three months will prove  welcome news to the people of Boundary Creek.    A survey is far short of a  railway but it is a beginning and it  probably means that Vice-president  Shaughnessy of the C. P. R., and Mr.  Heinze made some arrangements during the former's recent visit in Kootenay. Mr. Shaughnessy in an interview than said that in a few weeks the  people would know that the C. P. R.  appreciated the importance of the  Boundary Creek district, and probably  that knowledge is to be gleaned through  the actions of Mr. Heinze. Further  particulars regarding the movements  of the railway magnates will be awaited with interest.  The people of this district have nec-  essaril}'- their preferences regarding-  where a railway comes from and who  will build it but after all the great  desideratum is a railway arid they will  welcome one from any quarter.  The C. P. R. and Boundary Creek;  Vice-President Shaughnessy was interviewed upon his arrival at Vancouv-  and said among other matters that he  is confident that in the E}ast and West  Kootenay and the Boundary Creek section of the Yale district, British  Columbia in its southern possessions  has an inheritance which will yet rival  the greatest bullion yielding countries  of the world. You can say, said Mr.  Shaughnessy, that ..the Canadian Pacific Railway will do all in its power to  aid in every way the efforts of the  miners, the prospectors and the traders  of Kootenay in general to make it the  richest and most prosperous section of  Canada in the great west.  Asked as to his views concerning the  probability of railway construction  west of the Columbia river in the direction of Boundary Creek and Penticton,  Mr. Shaughnessy observed that the  subject was an important one, and was.  now receiving the attention of the executive at Montreal. The necessity for  such an outlet as Boundary Creek was  demanding had forced itself upon the  Federal and the Provincial Government as well as his company, and such  action would be taken at an early date  as would result in the carrying of a  line of railway west from the Columbia  river.

Hig-g-ins in  reference to the collection of votes for  the provincial list for this district.  Hon. Mr. Hig-g-ins writes from Grand  Forks under date Aug-ust 28, his letter  being; as follows :  To the Editor���My attention has  been called to the following- notice at  the Recorder's office in this city:  "Memorandum���The next court of  revision will be held on Monday the  2nd day of Aug-ust next. After revision the list will be closed and such  , closed list will be the voters'list for  the ensuing-year. Application to have  names placed on the voters' list must  be. sent in to the collector sixty days  before being- entered on the list. (See  Chap. 38, B. C. Con.)  ���I,. NORRIS,  Collector of Votes for the Fast  ������.. - Riding-of Yale Electoral Dist."  The statement by Mr. Norris that  "After revision the list will be closed  and such list will be the voters' list for  the ensuing- year "is incorrect. - The  system of reg-istration in force in this  province is continual. It is true that a  court of revision is held in August of  each year but the lists are never, closed.  Any duly qualified person may send to  the collector of votes in the district in  which he resides an application to have  his name placed on the voters' list, and  after the name of such applicant shall  have been posted for, a period of two  months without an objection having-  been filed the collector is required to  insert the name on the voters' list.  (See Chap. 38, B. C. Con.) There is no  such thing as a " closed " list under  our system. " If Mr. Norris' construction were to prevail no names could be  added after June 2 of each year and  thousands of qualified voters would be  disqualified at the next election.  If collectors in other districts have  misread the law simil.arily there will  be no end to the confusion, disappointment and illeg-ality next year.    ���  .  .  Immediate steps should be taken to  properly instruct Mr. Norris and all  other collectors who may labor under  the same misapprehension.  D. W. Higgins.  Section 38 of the B. C. Consolidated  Statutes 1888, to which Hon. Mr. Hig-  g-ins refers clearly lays down the duty  of the collector of votes. He is to  receive from any person offering- the  same a notice of claim to vote and to  insert the name of such person in the  list which shall be posted up in the  office of the collector. The collector is  liable to a fine of $50 and imprisonment  if he neglects to do so. If Mr. Norris'  contention holds good, many hundred  voters will be disqualified. Fortunately the law is against the instructions  Mr. Norris has issued, presumabry at  the direction of the Attorney-General's  department.  An effort should be made to at once  place on the provincial voters' list, the  names of the many who have qualified  during- the last two .months. Kvei^  British subject 21 years of ag-e who has  resided 12 months in the province and  two months in the district of Fast Yale  is entitled to have his name placed on  the list. Blank forms ma3r be secured  at. The Times office or at any of the  barristers' offices in the city.  R.

Thb Boundary Creek Times celebrates  its  first  anniversary;  with the  publication  of  this   issue.    The   year  through  which   it  has  passed has not  been   without   encouraging-    features.  The subscription   list   has grown,   the  ������ advertising-; patronage   is  increasing,  and we have no   complaints to offer regarding the amount of job work received.    GJ-reenwood    business   men   have  sufficient interest in the city to patronize   home   industry   and  consequently  they do not send out to get their printing done.    We do not want  to  destroy  any   sentiment   that   may surround   a  birthday but we cannot let  the  oppor-  ity   pass    without  gently   hintingv to  those who  had  sufficient confidence in  The Times to be subscribers  from the  first and to pay in advance, that  their  subscriptions   are   again   due and. that  we will  be pleased to acknowledge the  receipt of two dollars.  The  Times  has great confidence in  the  future.    It  ought to grow up with  the city and district whose   interests it  has always striven to advance.    Greenwood is in the heart of one of the greatest mining districts   in   the world and  during   the  year  capital   will come in  more freely, railway construction  will  be commenced  and  the  growth of the  cit/y will be rapid.    The Times  is now  a   healthy  youngster  considering   its  age and it will have a splendid  opportunity to grow during the next year. .  We  desire to thank our   friends  for  their liberal patronage and also beg to  request them not to forget the subscriptions.  GREENWOOD NEWS AND GOSSIP.

There are living- in the city of Greenwood to-day representatives of three  great nations, whose countenances are  by no means pleasant to look upon.  Until last Tuesday morning- they were  happy and contented free miners  but now they are suffering-from bitter  disappointment and disgust. Their  troubles arose over a certain mineral  , claim called the Vancouver, situated  in Deadwood camp and registered in  the Recorder's office at Midway in the  0 name of Fred Young- of Rossland.  The Vancouver is a promising- claim;  it has good surface showings and the  assays therefrom are hig-h. The Vancouver was located on the 31st day of  Aug-ust, 1896, and the 31st day of  Aug-ust, 1897, having- come and  g-one and there being' no assessment  work done on the property, several free  miners determined to re-locate the  claim. Now each of the re-locators  were ig-norant of the intentions of the  others.  Midnig-ht of the 31st came with a  cold, cheerless rain and an Egyptian  darkness. In the vicinity of the Vancouver were three groups of drenched  men. One of the parties drove in posts  and raised the stirring- notes of the  ,. Marseillaise to keep his own and his  companions' courage up. From another  corner of the claim came sounds of  driving-posts and also the "Star  Spang-led Banner." Both the French  and Americans were greatly startled  when " God Save the Queen," penetrated the mist and the darkness and  to find that they were not the only ones  who were engaged vin the work of relocating-the claim.  The morning- of the 1st was as  dispiriting- as the preceding- evening-,  but the mineral richness of the Vancouver acted as an incentive to the  chilled men who spent the night in the  mountains. They went to Midway to  record and were greeted by Recorder  McMynn singing- with a strong- Scottish accent " Will Ye No' Com' Back  Agin."  In their enthusiasm regarding- the  re-location of the property, the parties  in question never stopped to consider  whether the law furnished a way by  which an owner could protect his prop  erty without doing the assessment  work. When they were busy decorating the property with posts, one hundred dollars of the lawful money of Canada was lying snugly in Mr. McMynn's  safe. It had been deposited with him  in lieu of the assessment work oh the  Vancouver.  There are several disappointed men  in Greenwood and it is anything but  safe to speak about the Vancouver  claim in their presence.

They are all being  kept busy and have work in sight for  some time. During this week several  Greenwood residents came to the conclusion that this was a good enough  place to build in and consequently the  material for houses is being hauled to  different parts of the city.  Alderman Hamill has decided to erect  a three-storey hotel on   his  lot  at  the  corner of Greenwood and Copper street  and  adjoining  his  other  block.    The  hotel will   be built  and furnished in a  manner that will ensure for Greenwood  one of the best hotels in the whole district.    Work  has  already  commenced  and the ground is being excavated  for  the basement in which the heating apparatus will be  placed.    The  building  will occupy  the whole of the  frontage  on Copper street and will run back  for  a distance of 70 feet.    Alderman Hamill  has already  leased the  building for, a  year  and   he   is to have it   completed  within sixty days.    The lot is centrally  located and is . an  excellent site for a  first class hotel.,  W. Miller, merchant tailor, has given  the contract for a store and residence  on Copper street. The carpenters , are  already at work on this building.  W. S. Fletcher, the druggist, has decided to build for himself on Greenwood street, next to Olson & Phelan's  store. He will erect a two story building; the contract will be given in a few  days.'  W, W. Gibbs has let the contract for  a residence and assay office on Greenwood street. Work has already commenced on this building.  Mr. Ostroski's residence is nearing  completion, as is also Mr. JOawder's.  Both are neat and well built structures  and will add to the appearance of the  city. Mr. Thos. Miller, Mr. Powell  and others are also doing some building. Good progress, is also made on  the jail and court house.  Besides these there are others who  are contemplating building operations  this fall so that carpenters are most j  hopeful.'' Greenwood has plenty of  carpenters of her own however, and  those on the outside will-likely be disappointed if they come here seeking  employments  l  Old Ironsides Machinery.  The large hoisting machinery and  drill plant has arrived at the Old Ironsides mine in Greenwood camp and  men are hard at work getting it into  position. The Burger Bros, and A.  Call had the contract for hauling- the  machinery from Bossburg and they  succeeded in getting it to the mine in  g-ood time and good condition. The  plant was purchased from F. R. Meu-  denhall, Rossland, the general western  manager of the Jen ekes Machine Co.,  of Sherbrooke. The boiler is of 60-  horse power. Mr. J. P. Graves, the  general manager of the Old Ironsides  arrived in Greenwood on Wednesda}'.  Sonse Rich Specimens.  Mr. G. H. Collins, the manager of  the Brandon & Golden Crown Co., has  brougiit down from their mine several  hundred pounds of wonderfully rich  looking- samples. Some of these will  be sent to Toronto, Montreal and other  eastern cities and will there undoubtedly attract considerable attention.  That V what talks at the WHITE FRONT  these days.

Midway, August 12th, 1897. 49-4  A.   D.   WORGAN,  GREENWOOD   CITY.  ��� ��� ��� ir i  Views of Greenwood  and   the   Mines   for  SaU'. A Mineral Exhibit.  All the mineowners and others interested in the development of Boundary  Creek ' district should make an  effort to have an exhibit at the Spokane  Fruit Fair. Judg-ing- from the lack of  interest at present evinced in the matter, no exhibit will be sent, or it will be  of such a commonplace order that it  will not do justice, to the district. Iyast  year the same lack of interest was displayed and were it not for the energ-y  and perseverance of Mr. J. C. Haas  Boundary Creek could have made but  a poor showing- at Spokane. Thanks  to his efforts, the exhibit was second  only to that of the Fort Steele country;  it received the encomiums of the press  and mining men and did much towards  attracting- attention to the district.  Mr. Haas also remained near the exhibit arid furnished inquirers with valuable information regarding- the dis-  ���' trict.    ' ���'���"'.���  If the residents of this district will  present an interesting- object lesson to  the thousands who will attend the Fruit  Fair, the benefits to be derived will  well repay the trouble and expense.  Boundary Creek produces a wonderful  variety of ore and nothing- so soon attracts attention as a nicely arrang-ed  mineral exhibit. The people of Grand  Forks are collecting- ores for the Spokane Fair and unless the people of  Greenwood are alive to their interests,  those who go to Spokane need not be  surprised if they find that the Grand  Forks exhibit includes ore from camps  in this vicinity.  A Larger Force of Men.  Mr. J.- P. Graves, the manager of the  Old Ironsides and Knob Hill Companies, paid only a hurried visit to the  properties leaving- ag-ain on Thursday  morning-. During- his stay however,  he gave instructions to put more men  to work and on Thursday 15 men were  employed. It is reported that the company have decided to spend $20,000 on  the Ironsides and Knob Hill. From all  appearances the properties justify the  exj^enditure of any amount of money  and they are likely to become two of  the largest producing- mines in the  country. Fach contains enormous  bodies of ore.  A   REPORTED   CHANGE.  The Vancouver World is the authority for the following :  ' It is reported in Victoria that Mr.  Scaife has resigned the editorship of  the Province and will shortly leave for  England. Rumor has it that W. C.  Nicol, a brig-ht young journalist, well  known in Hamilton and I^ondon and  who was for some months joint owner  of the Kaslo Kootenaian, has been  offered and has accepted the bosition."  Mr. Scaife has been seriously ill for  nearly a year and this will probably  account for his resig-nation, if the report be true. He is one of the ablest  journalists connected with the provincial press, and his many friends in the  prdfession will wish him a speedy recovery and success in the Mother I/and.  Another Dividend.  The Cariboo Mining-, Milling &  Smelting- Company, of Camp McKin-  ney, has declared another dividend.  The dividend is for two per cent, and  will g-ive about $16,000 to the stock  holders. The dividend is paj'able next  Monda3', September 6, and the transfer  books  of  the company will close Sep  tember 4, and re-open September 8.  This is the sixteenth dividend declared  by the company, and when paid will  make a total of $173,000 in round numbers which the company has paid its  stockholders. Some of the earlier dividends were only 1 per cent. The mine  is reported in a prosperous condition.  The new air compressor, which was  recently installed, is working- in a satisfactory manner, and it is the expectation of, the directors that other and  larg-er dividends will follow in the near  future.   ,  R. H. Hamilton, of the Wholesale  firm of Hamilton & McMillan, Vancouver and Naksup, and R. Carley,  representing M. R. Smith & Co., biscuit manufacturers and Pehdray'sSoap  Works, Victoria, paid Greenwood a  business visit yesterday.  From all reports mine owners in Slo-  can are g-etting- discouraged at the low  prices for silver and unless it rises to  60 cents many mines will probably  shutdown. Some of the owners are  talking- of reducing- wages but others  would rather close their mines than  take this course.  Provincial Secretary's Office,  Aug-ust 18th, 1897.

J^Sr"   Perfect fit guaranteed*  1 'M  n  ill  ggggjaggg^^ THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES.  SURVEYORS   AT   WORK.  Heinze will build. After countless  rumors reg-arding- railway con struction,  the latest information appears to be  reliable and is exceeding-ly gratifying-  to the people of Boundary Creek. A  despatch from Trail states that Heinze  has decided to complete the survey from  Trail to Penticton in less than four  months. There will be two parties of  perhaps 18 men each and they will  commence surveying- from the summit  on the other side of Christina L,ake in  order to avoid the heavy snows. One  of the survey parties is now at Dog  Creek in charg-e of E^ng-ineer Sullivan  and as soon as they are under way he  will return and organize the second  party. It is the intention to complete  all maps before winter closes so that  active construction can beg-in in the  spring-. G  The despatch states that Heinze Pass  is the new g-ateway across the divide  to Christina lake, through which^ the  Penticton road will be surveyed. It  was so named because Mr. Heinze's  engineers discovered it, and thereby  overcame the greatest obstacle in the  construction of the entire road. At the  same time it made accessible a. country  which had hitherto been considered  almost useless for railroad purposes,  because of the high mountains. In  fact, the Canadian Pacific railroad surveyors at one time reported it as impassable, and did not even outline a  probable route through it. The lowest  pass they succeeded in finding was  7500 .feet, while Heinze's engineers  discovered an opening which repre-c  sents a climb of only 4000 feet. The  whole country is a succession of hills,  and, a large portion of it is altogether  unexplored.  It is a peculiar break in the mountains, running in just the opposite direction from the one sought, that will  let the Penticton road through. From  Robson the Columbia river turns from  its northeasterly course and runs  almost due west for perhaps eight miles  before it takes a course northwesterly  for the same distance, broadening into  what is called l/ower Arrow lake.  From this lake to Christina lake is a  distance of about 30 miles, and just in  -the center of this area, is the divide  from which flows Dog creek, to the  northeast, entering Arrow lake, and  McCrea creek, to the southwest, into  Christina lake. It is along these  ..streams that the most difficult portion  .of the Penticton road will find its  grade.  The Canadian Pacific railroad engineers, instead of following the south  tributary of Dog creek, ran their line  along one running almost due west,  with the intention of reaching Kettle  river, but the high grades were in the  way, and no pass short of 7500 feet  could be found. Heinze's men made  two trips, with better results. Naturally they were looking for an opening  in the mountains east and west, but  instead they found one running due  north and south. They called it  Heinze pass and it is 13 miles in length.  When the mouth is reached a sharp  turn  is   made,   and  the distance is re  traced on the other side of the mountain, until the head of McCrea creek  brings the road on a gradual decline to  Christina lake. Then the most difficult section of the whole Penticton  road is covered, and the road runs  down the east side of Christina lake to  Cascade City, across Christina creek,  and along the north bank of the Kettle  river. From the North Fork at the  mouth of Pass creek, the road will  cross to Boundary creek, pass through  Greenwood, down to Midway and on to  Penticton. The country from the  North Fork to Penticton does not offer  many engineering .difficulties and the  cost of construction will be compara-  tively low. <,' ��� ���  APPLICATION FOR LIQUOR LICENSE.

The electors of Greenwood are  to be  congratulated upon the  result  of  Saturday's election.    The Times will be  disappointed if the. aldermen-elect will  not give  the  city  a  progressive  and  efficient administration.    All  of  them  are   successful  business  men,   and if  they will only conduct the  civic  business   as," each   conducts  his  own  the  electors will have nothing to fear. Aid.  Hamill   is   no   stranger  to  municipal  work, having  been  for   a  number  of  years a member of the municipal council of  Spallumcheen.    His  experience  should prove to be of the greatest benefit at  first.    Aid.   McKenzie  also  had  municipal   experience    in    the    East,  where the work is  similar  to  that in  the   municipalities . ��f''.this   province.  There are many  matters  that require  careful consideration   and we  believe  that   the   new  cduncil   will  approach  them in the proper  spirit, having only  the interests of the city at heart.  A New Steamer.  A steamer is being built at Okanagan landing which, when completed,  will be utilized for carrying freight by  way of Okanagan river and Dog lake  from Penticton to Okanagan Falls.  The steamer will be a stern-wheeler of  light draft, 90 feet in length and 18  feet in width. The distance is about  twelve miles, and as an appropriation  has been made by the Dominion government for cleaning and deepening  the river the steamer is likely to prove  a success and will ensure a more  speedy conveyance of freight to Boundary Creek points.  Boundary Creek Ore.  During- the week mining men and  others have discovered the advisability  of securing a building in which could  be displayed specimens of Boundary  Creek ore. Such a display would result advantag-eously to Greenwood and  the whole district. If properly labeled  it would also furnish intending purchasers with a great deal of information concerning the ores of Boundary  Creek. Probable' the city council will  take up the matter and see that it is  carried to a successful issue.  Hon.
