 't-JfiBlatur'i .;  11901  Libx'-tj  tA  ,.s  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3  1902.  No. 6.  A By-Law to be Submitted.  to the Ratepayers.  Other   Matters   Considered  by the  Greenwood Council.  ^~ The ratepayers will be asked to vote  ' on a by-law to raise by way of debentures the necessary money to construct  the Greenwood-Phoenix tramway. The  city of Phoenix will be requested to  contribute towards the enterprise, and  as Anaconda will be benefitted by the  project, its citizens will be asked to  take the necessary steps to join the  municipality, so that they may contribute a fair share of the amount required  for this important enterprise! A resolution embodying the above was  unanimously passed by the municipal  council at its regular meeting on Monday evening, and copies of the resolution will be sent to the municipal council at Phoenix and to the residents of  Anaconda.  There were pres.ent at the meeting-  Mayor Naden in the chair and Aid.  Caulfield, Ross, Kirkwood, Bannerman  and Swayne.  William Graham McMynn asked  permission to use city water and also  to construct a septic tank at his new  residence that is being erected on  Long Lake street. The permission to  use the water was granted, and the  septic tank'may be constructed subject  to such provisions as may be added to  the health by-law.  A tender from Messrs, Stack & Oliver was then considered. They agreed  to manufacture 1,500 feet of wire  wound wooden pipe for 35 cents a foot,  lay the same in the trenches for $100,  guarantee it to withstand a 138 pound  .^.pressure, and give it a 48 hour test  in open trenches before it is taken "over  by the city. This class of pipe is now  extensively used for waterworks. In  Spokane a considerable industry has  been built up. The council had in  view the possibility of a similar indus-  ---���-try-being-started iip-here,"3nd awarded  the contract to Messrs. Stack & Oliver  for 1,500 feet of pipe, which will be  used in extending tne- service to the  new school house.  The question of wandering curs was  considered at length.    Several of the  aldermen  spoke feelingly in the matter.    They are chicken  fanciers,   and  ;      went to great trouble  and .expense  to  |      secure the latest and best bred type of  |      chickenhood,   only   to   find    that   the  i      Greenwood cur, with a discrimination  j      totally   unexpected  and  unwarranted,  j      selects  only   fine  bred chickens when  '      he desires  a  meal.    The  poultry pro-  ���      ducers  are wild, and   now   go   about  j      with  a  gun   in   the  hip  pocket and a  .'      bowie knife in the   boot.    The  council  i      decided   that in  order to preserve the  chickens,   and   incidentally   law   and  order in the city, something had to be  [      done.    So  fighting   men  and the city  team  will  start  out  in   quest of  tin-  i      Ragged, unclaimed and underbred dogs  '.��.   that  may  be  found  in all quarters of  ��� the city. Such dogs will be killed and  ; buried away where they cannot be  <      found.  Aid.   Bannerman and Ross were ap-  ��� pointed a committee to consider  with  !       the city  solicitor  the consolidation of  the   city   by-laws.     This   course  was  deemed necessary, as owing to a recent  amendment to the Municipal  Clauses  ;       Act, a copy of all city by-laws must be  ���|       filed in the local registry office.  The Women's Association of St.  Columba (Presbyterian) church will  give a "Rainbow" Social in the church  building next Wednesday evening.  An excellent programme has been arranged for the occasion. The Greenwood brass band will be in attendance.  Refreshments will be served by the  ladies,  The Passing of Holland.  General Manager of the Hot Air Line  is Out  GRAND FORKS, B. C, Oct, 1.���A  private dispatch received today from  Toronto, Ont., conveyed the announcement that Tracy W. Holland, general  manager of the Kettle Valley Lines,  had tendered his resignation and had  disposed of his interest in the enterprise. The resignation has already  tuketi effect. Mr. Holland is now on  his way west, but his future plans ai'o  unknown. Mr. Holland will probably  serve out his term as mayor of Grand  Forks.  W. A. Stratton, a Toronto attorney,  has been here for some time past on  business in connection with the railway  company. Mr. Stratton is a brother of  Hon. J. R. Stratton, provincial secre  tary of the Ontario provincial government, and wno with other eartern capitalists are interested in the enterprise.  Asked respecting the report of,Mr. Holland's resignation, he replied: "Yes I  understand Mr. Holland has resigned,  but have not received any further information from the  east."  The resignation of Holland as general manager'of* the road is the latest  development in an enterprise which has  been marked with more sensational features and has given as little return on  the money invested as any scheme carried out in the northwest for many a  month. The "Hot Air Line," as the  road has come to be called, represents  an investment of over $1,000,000, which  Ontario men put into the scheme for  building a railway from Republic,  Wash., to Grand Forks, B. C. The  road has cost far more than was ever  expected, and it has done practically  no business at all. The formal opening took place'abtutt five months ago.  Since then the road has carried somewhat more than 500 tons of ore, for  which it is supposed to get a revenue  of $1 a toti. It gave* tip all idea of  running passenger trains long ago,  and now it is not even running freight  trains. The cars and the engines are  lying idle in the yards, until such a  time as shipments commence out of  Republic, when the officials'of the road  exdect to get a port of the business.  Fairview   Reported   Sold.  Said   That   Englishmen   Will   Take  Holdings.  .^FAIRVIEW,  B.   C._, Sept. 30.��� It  is  reported here that the property of the  New Fairview corporation has been  sold in England, and althoug the report lacks official confirmation, it is regarded as quite probab'e that a deal  in negotiation for some time past has  at length been closed. The sum named  is $800,000, with $50,000 down, $350,000  in three months and the balance later.  The company's property includes  16 mineral claims, all within three  miles of Fairview, 400 acres of coal  lands situate about 10 miles north of  the town towards Penticton ; a 46  stamp mill, with cyanide works in  course of erection, and a lot of other  go'd saving appliances and-1 plant ;  water rights, the greater portion of the  Fairview townsite and the 60x60 three  story hotel at Fairview.  The chief mining property owned by  by the company is the Stemwinder,  having a big body of gold quartz ore  opened at 100. 200 and 300 foot levels,  and with the main shaft being deepened from the 300 level with the intention  of opening another level at 400 feet  depth. The ore is stated to be increasing iu value as depth is gained, latest  yields from a 12 foot shoot giving S8 to  $20 assay values.  Death of Mrs. Sherman.  Frida ��� afternoon Mrs. Delbert Sherman died at the fami.y residence on  Gold Street, after a serious illness.  The bereaved husband is employed at  the Greenwood smelter. The deceased  was about 35 years of age. A brother  resides here, and another brother lives  at Moscow, pending whose arrival funeral arrangements are deferred, but  the interment will probably take place  on Sunday afternoon from the residence of W, C. Tilsley.  .IIjL    JLJbji. I j  Eastern  in  Fish to be Planted  Long Lake.  IE  Mr   Pelly Goes After Shipment to  Revelstoke.  A. N. Pelly left on Tuesday for  Revelstoke. He went after fish. It  was no ordinary fishing expedition.  Mr. Pelly was .sure of catching thousands, and he had some grounds for  the hope that was within him. The  fish were enclosed in a tin box and  were in charge of officials of the fisheries department of the Dominion.  ,It will be remembered that the Board  of Trade and others made numerous  representations to the Department of  Marine and Fisheries to stock Long  Lake. At first the department promised to take the matter into its very  earnest consideration, but after further  importunities by the people here the  promise was made that just as soon as  fish were sent out to British Columbia  waters, Long Lake would not be forgotten. This fall the department decided to send black bass to B. C, and  Mr. Gaunce, the secretary of the Board  of Trade, was notified that the special  car containing the fish would reach  Revelstoke on October4th. There was  a tank of fish for Long Lake, and thfe  Board was asked to send a man to take  charge of it there.  Mr. Pelly, who has a ranch at Long  Lake and is interested in fish, volunteered to go. He will co-operate with  a man from Cascade, who is after a  tank for Christina Lake, in caring for  the precious members of the finny-  tribe.  No time will be lost in (retting the  black bass into their future home.  There is no reason why they shouldn't  thrive in Long Lake. They are game  fighters, have a delicious flavor, and  when they grow are sure to furnish  good sport and good eating for many a  fisherman.  The Spokane Fair.-  The Spokane Interstate Fair opens  on Monday next. The Fair this year  is going to be bigger and better than  ever. Geo. H. Martin an old railway  man is manager and he has not only  perfected arrangements for a big show  but he has also arranged for exceptionally cheap rates from all points to  Spokane.  "All details of preparations point to  a big success at the interstate fair"  said President Peel. "There will be a  quantity of fine stock, the big stable of  the speediest horses on the coast, fine  entertainment features, and already  there arc hundreds and thousands of  people all over the country who are  anxious to come to Spokane. The railroads, too, are doing the handsome  thing aud will have a large crowd in  attendance on October 6th, the opening  day, which will continue and increase  in size until the fair is over. I think  the success of the fair will be great and  is already  assured."  Harry Lindley Here.  Harry Lindley, the veteran of the  Canadian stage, is here for a week  with a strong company. Mr. Lindley  is known from one end of the Dominion to the other as a versatile and entertaining actor, and he is about the  only man who could induce the stern  Scottish Presbyterians of Bruce county to witness such an ungodly thing as  a play. He opened here to a full house  on Thursday evening, and will spend  a week at the Auditorium. He and his  company are well worth tne modest  price of admission, and as there is a  change of programme every evening,  patrons can enjoy every performance.  Went to Kamloops.  "Jolly Jack" Taken to the Old Men's  Home-  Last Monday Thos. McAuley, president of the Pioneers' Association, accompanied John Thornton, popularly  known as "Jolly Jack," to Kamloops,  where the old man will spend the rest  of his days in comfort at the Old Men's  Home. "Jolly Jack" is 77 years of  age.. He lived on Boundary creek for  .several years after a life of adventure  and vicissitudes on the battle field and  in the rush to many a new mining  camp. He has earned some comforts  in his declining years, and through  the representations of the Pioneers'  Association he was admitted to the  Old Men's Home.  A Bad Accident.  A ten-year-old son of Mr. Banbury,  the milkman, met with a serious accident on Wednesday last, He was  playing with a dynamite cartridge,  which exploded, badly lacerating one  of his hands. The thumb and two of  the forefingers were carried away and  the hand otherwise lacerated. The  unfortunate youth was taken to the  Sacred Heart Hospital in this city,  where Drs. Spankie and Schoti did all  that surgical skill could do,  Several offers have been received  by the owners of the Ruby mineral  claim, situated within 300 or 400 yards  of the Boundary Falls smelter, to take  it on a working lease, or on a bond  with right to purchase. The property  was worked last year by some Detroit  men, who put a small power plant on  it and sent 85 tons of good grade copper-gold ore to the smelter, but got  into financial difficulties and could not  take up their bond.  Are you using  "Blue Ribbon"   Ceylon  tea?  {^��>.^K<<t^K'"K',,K'W,5"$,>**,>*  Smelters Making Money  Greenwood's smelters are running full blast and are making  big profits. Although no figures  are given out it is stated that net  profit from the Mother Lode ore  is over $1.50 per ton. The ore  fromthe upper glory-holes-is of-  much higher grade, but only  about 150 tons a day is shipped  from them, although the mine is  shipping 800 tons dailyi and the  smelter is treating upward of 750  daily. A carload of matte is sent  to the converter every day, and  each car is worth over $4,000, so  that it can be easily seen that,  the smelter is making big money.  These encouraging returns offer ever}' inducement for further  investments, and it is reported  that the company will lose no  time in installing two or three  new fur-iaces, and a converter of  its own. There is plenty of ore  at the Mother Lode to supply  much larger reduction works,  and if further ore were needed  there are plenty of properties to  ship.  At the Sunset smelter equally  good work is being done, but the  smelter is getting so much custom ore that it is impossible to  treat much Sunset. Both the  B. C. mine and the Snowshoe are  making heavy shipments to the  Sunset smelter. Until the second furnace is installed, the output of the Sunset mine will be  kept down. This is rather a difficult thing to do, as two miners  working one shift daily ret out  140 tons a day. The whole force  at the mine, including Superintendent Johns, assayer and engineers, is only 14 men, and of  these only two are miners, but  they are getting out all tne ore  required at the smelter.  As soon as the second furnace  is installed, however, the output  at the Sunset will  be increased.  The Providence is Looking  Better Than Ever.  Will be Sent to the Smelter Next  Week.  Another rich strike has been made  on the Providence. This statement  has been made so frequently that it is  getting almost stale in Greenwood, but  the Providence is no ordinary property,  and is always ready to furnish surprises without notice. As has already  been announced in the Times, the  Providence was recently acquired by  a company organized to purchase and  develop it. Duncan Mcintosh, who is  interested, took charge of the property,  and with a force of men began stoping  out ore. With Mac's usual good luck  they ran into a chute of free gold ore  that will run up in the thousands.  From the vicinity in which this chute  was discovered, assays as high as  $40,000 to the ton were secured by the  former owners, but they were never  able to find any quantity of ore of thu  character. Duncan Mcintosh never  misses anything, however, and the  recent discovery will add greatly to  the value of a property already valuable. The gold is coarse and can be  easily picked out of the ore. It is impossible to say how much there is of  this high grade ore, but even a little of  it means big money. In addition to  the free gold the ore is rich in ruby  silver. ' .  A Times representative visited the  property on Thursday last, and found  that a carload of this rich ore had been  taken out' in making the connection  between the tunnel and the shaft. The  vein runs from 8 inches to 12 inches in  width. The carload will easily lead  all others in values. It will be shipped  About: Tuesday next?.  For a high grade property the vein  is remarkably well defined. It is found  in the shaft, in the tunnel and in several drifts. Several carloads of this  high grade ore are in sight, and will  be taken out during the next month.  At the same time development work  will be kept up.  Mr. Fowler and his associates last  'week received returns from the last  shipment sent to the Trail smelter  before turning the property over to the  new company. The shipment was 15)4  tons, and netted $1,796.38. Next week's  shipment will easily net more than  $150 and possibly $200 to the ton.  The Republic Group.  R C. Longley and W. T. Smith have  taken the Republic group of claims on  a working lease with an option to  pnrcha.se. The group includes the  Republic, Last Chance, Hidden Treasure and Nonsuch, the last named being  the oldest mineral claim on continuous  record in Boundary Creeek district.  All have showings of quartz ore carrying values in gold and silver. On  the Republic there is a 100-foot incline  shaftin ore and a shaft of similar depth  on the Last Chance with a like showing  of or�� opened by it. The Nonsuch has  had 700 to 800 fejt of tunnel work done  on it on two levels following the quartz  vein. Ore will be shipped from the  dump as soon as arrangements shall  have b��en made with a smelter to take  it. The claims were originally located  by Mr. Smith, who has held an interest  in the Nonsuch for about 16 years.  They kave been owned by the Republic  Gold Mining Co., of Spokane, for  several years, but this company has  not done any development on tham f��r  some time past.  <s  t>* >>-  -THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  �����-��<-�������#��*��***���*#**����*##*#��**���*��#*#��#*#****  THE BEST WORKMANSHIP  EVERYTHING GUARANTEED.

SEIGNOIR TARTE.  The spirit of some enterprising and  paternal seignoir has taken possession  of J. Israel Tarte, He is filled with a  desire to do things for the people of  Canada. Not satisfied with these  growing times, he wants to get more  money to spend and he wants the people to make more. He has rediscovered a way of making the country more  prosperous. The manufacturers are to  be taken under the fostering care of  the government. The common herd  must pay more for their goods that the  manufacturers may become richer.  The way is not new, but it was never  before exploited with that originality  a.nd brilliancy that characterizes the  irrepressible Miniater of Public "Works.  Many years ago, long before this  Canada of ours became a part of the  great British Empire. Mr. Tarte's  scheme was a cure for all the ills that  the Colony labored under. It was going to stimulate trade, encourage pop  ulation, and generally make the Colony  rich and prosperous. History tells the  reiult7  Francis Parkman in his own entertaining way unconsciously deals a hard  blow to the system of protection, which  a paternal government introduced in  Canada. After telling what the government had done to encourage industries in the new colony, Mr. Parkman  givss some of the results. He says :  "The besetting evil of trade and industry in Canada was the habit they contracted, and were encouraged to contract, of depending on the aid of the  government. Not a new enterprise  was set on foot without a petition to  the king to lend a helping hand ; and  it was rarely refused." He gives a  striking illustration of how protection  works out. "Detionville announces  that one Revesin wishes to embark in  the whale and cod fishery, and that  though strong iu zeal he is weak in  resources. The minister replies that  he is to be encouraged and that His  Majesty will favorably consider his  enterprise." It is related that afterwards some monopoly or other put a  stop to this industry. To revivify the  industry a homeopathic remedy was  applied. Another monopoly was  granted.  The king preached to the benighted  colonists just as Mr. Tarte i�� preaching  today. He insisted upon encouraging  their enterprises, until they found that  those enterprises could not prosper  without the paternal care of the government. Then the king had to use  means to cut off the mouldering branches. He wrote to the intendant "to  incite them by  all sorts of means to  overcome their natural laziness, since  there is no other way of saving them  from the misery in which they now  are." Monopolies were granted, certain industries were protected. Finally  the king released the people from all  the blighting influences of these monopolies, coupling his order to that effect,  with a eulogy on free trade.  It is rather amusing to watch the  movements of the aggressive little  minister. Yesterday he was telling  the woolen manufacturers that they  needed more protection ; today the cotton manufacturers get a similar dose,  and tomorrow he is going to tell the  farmersof Manitoba and the Northwest  that they must pay more for their farm  machinery in order that a campaign  of retaliation may be conducted  against the United States. Mr. Tarte.  wants a country of wealthy manufacturers and impoverished consumers ;  of.princes and paupers. He wants by  acts of parliament to create trusts similar to those that are sucking the life  blood out of the masses in the United  States. He is preaching Toryism in  its original state���the Toryism of the  seignoir of New France.  Mr. Tarte cannot do much harm so  long as the Liberals do not allow themselves to be stampeded by the aggressive apostle of protection. The Liberal party has been the party of freedom.  It always met with disaster when it  abandoned principles for expediency.  And it will again meet with disaster if  it abandons the policy which placed it  in power. It is wiser to let Tarte go  back to the Tory camp than to lose the  rank and file of the great Liberal  arffly^-^"""'"'"^"  BETTER MAIL SERVICE.  and travelled several hundred miles to  reach its point of destination, which is  only 28 miles from where it was mailed.  Beyond Fairview are Kcremeos, Hedley City, Similkameen City, Twenty  Mile, Allison, Princeton and Ashnola.  There should be a through mail service between Midway and Princeton.  If a contract were awarded for the entire route, a fast stage line could bo  maintained, which would give not only  a fast mail service but would afford an  easy means of communication between  the various mining camps mentioned.  It should be the duty of the government to encourage development of  promising districts, and a mail service  properly arranged would do much towards removing the difficulties of communication between various points in  a new district.  The present practices of awarding  mail contracts iu patches successfully  prevents what is necessary in a new  district, viz., communication between  the various points.  The change would not entail additional cost in the department, it would  successfully remove the causes for the  strong criticisms that are being directed against the department, it would  prove a great convenience to the travelling public, and would remove some  of the difficulties under which the pioneers in the new miuing camps are  laboring.

Established (S36.  i  Incorporated by Royal Charter.  It is unfortunate that the Post Office  Department has never been able to appreciate the requirements of the new  districts of the province in the matter  of mail service. Sir William Mulock,  the Postmaster-General, has done good  work since he took charge of the department, but there are what might be  considered minor matters in this great  service that are never and have never  been remedied. It appears easy to  revolutionize the service by means of  Imperial penny postage, but difficult  to secure adequate mail service for new  mining camps. In the early days of  the Boundary, before the advent of a  railway, similar complaints were made.  Today the newer districts, west of the  Boundary, have not the service that  they should have.  When the railway was completed to  Greenwood all existing mail contracts  were of course cancelled, and the carrying of the mails turned over to the  railway company. Contracts were  then awarded for carrying the mail  between Midway and Camp McKinney  and Penticton and Fairview. This  leaves a distance of 28 miles, between  Camp McKinney and Fairview, without any mail service. A letter from  Camp McKinney to Fairview must  come by stage to Greenwood, thence  by rail to Robson, from there to Revel  stoke, and then round by Sicamous  and Vernon and by steamer to Pentic  ton. From there it is carried by stage  to Fairview.   It has taken four days  CAPITAL,    ./;i.()iHU)00-$4.iS()6,6{)(),()()  Reserve linil/;3(>5.()00--$l .77M33.33  HEAD :   London En-Hiiii-J.      H.

There should be enough  money in the East Yale appropriation  to complete the road, but it would be a  mistake to complete it this year. The  West Fork district might forge ahead  too quickly. By the end of-October  Mr. Gilleen should go up the West  Fork ; by the middle of November  work should be started. There is then  a dead certainty that winter will prevent the completion of the road.  II is a great policy, perpetuated by  great men, and calculated to make the  country great.  Silver-Lead Mining.  To the Editor of the Boundary Creek  Times. ��� Owing to some .divergence  of opinion as to the best means to be  adopted for the encouraging of Silver  lead mining in British Columbia, I  desire that the mine owners fix a time  and place for .the discussion of this  subject and also as to the admission  into Canada free of duty of all mining  supplies and machinery not manufactured in Canada, and the lowering  of duties on certain other machinery  manufactured in Canada.  I shall be pleased to attend any such  meeting in order that I may have their  views thereon to aid me in my endeavour    to    bring   about   conditions  .;..;��x���<"^<�����X"XMJ~**������^���x������^���^������^���^������x���,*x������^-,^  A  The Midway Dispatch has a two  column, double leaded article on the  West Fork road���or rather on the absence of the West Fork road. The  history of that now famous hiatus is  given and some pungent comments  offered on the vagaries of Chief Com-  .missioners, past and present. It is  really difficult to understand why the  Dispatch should take up so much space  in denouucing the failure to complete  this public undertaking. If should  know by this time that the reason  British Columbia has prospered in the  past is because governments have offered no encouragement to the people.  Paternalism has been the bane of  many a nation. After all'a strenuous  life is best. It would be a serious mistake for the government to encourage  the construction of wagon roads to  important mining camps. The people  should build their own roads. The  more obstacles that are placed in the  way of the development of the wonderful mineral resources of this country,  the better it is for the country. What  better evidence can there be of mineral  wealth in British Columbia than the  fact that there are some producing  mines despite bad government, inequitable taxation and unstable political conditions ? With so many obsta-r  cles in the way of development, the  fact that British Columbia mines are  producing wealth should thoroughly  convince doubting Thomases that this  province does possess some merit.  With  this  well established policy, it  is not difficult to understand  why special efforts should be made to make it  exceptionally difficult to develop   the  West Fork country.    Possibly no other  district  in  the  province is of greater  promise.   The ledges of ore are there  and  the  values  are there.   It is quite  true that individuals who could   not  understand the policy of the government have suffered.    Enterprising men  have  invested  their all in developing  mining properties on   the West Fork,,  believing that at some time the government would see that at least the most  primitive     means    of   transportation  would be  afforded.    More capital was  ���expended in  getting out high   grade  -"ore,"confidently --expecting^-that--they-  would have a wagon road to haul it to  the local   smelters,   and   thus   secure  capital for further development. There  were some grounds for this hope, since  at  the last session  of the legislature  an exceptionally  large vote was made  for the East  Yale district, on the understanding  that  a portion was to be  expended in completing the West Fork  road.    The   same    legislature    which  YOted the money also passed a redistribution  measure.   East Yale was subdivided.    Now it is such an easy matter  to expend  $28,000 in the farming  district   north,   aud   the enterprising  member who resides in that portion of  the old constituency  is  doubtless  not  anxious that any of the money should  be expended in a district that no longer  belongs to him.   Why should  not the  whole amount be expended in the vicinity  of Vernon?*  It would be a  good  thing for the farmers up there, and  the West Fork is rich enough anyway.  It requires no encouragement from the  government.  The Chief Commissioner has been  making promises that Ottfr Gilleen  would come in to see whether a road  was wanted up the West Fork, but no  Mr. Gilleen has made his appearance  at the present writing. It would be in  direct opposition to that well established policy of the government to expend  money during good weather. Important works should be delayed until late  in the fall, when men will work short  hours, when delays will occur  on account of bad weather, and  when snow will interfere with grading  With such a combination of circum  stances a  minimum amount   of road  &~te~>X~X<<<"X<<<'<<~><<<<<"l~l<">  W.
