HILL  SAYS SO  Only Waiting For Weather  Conditions  On the Phoenix: Branch of the V. V.  & E. Railway.  Indications that the Great Northern  people are anxious to build the Phoenix  branch of the V., V. & E. railway have  been apparent the entire winter past.  But railway promoters rarely claim to  be anxious to spend their money solely  in the interest of the people, and so do  not expect to become objects of public  charity to any great extent. In the execution of their plans they must be  constantly on their guard against  holdups by property holders all along  the proposed lines, henee the secrecy of  movements.'    :.'.*.  As regards the Phoenix branch it is  believed J. J. Hill's lieutenants have  matters so fully adjusted that there  can no longer be any danger in comibg  out into the open. And now it is given  out by Mr. Hill himself that work will  start as soon as the snow is off the  ground. -according to the promises  made to A. J. McMillan, managing  director of the Le Roi Mining company.  The Boundary mines are still 20 miles  from- the.. railrbaQ,. -which has been  building toward them'ifor a number of  years.   .  Mr. Hill has been sought by both the  mining people and the Northport  smelter people to complete the line, and  at the last meetitigof the Le Roi stockholders held in London Mr. McMillan  reported to them *he promise of Mr.  Hill to beg in the work at once.

RENDELL & CO.   j  School Trustee Meetin?.  The new board of School Trustees  for the city of Greenwood held their  first meeting Saturday evening. There  were present Truste :s Johnson and  McArthur.  The following bills passed at the  previous meeting of the old board, were  confirmed: T. M. Gulley, $185 97; A.  G. Lachapelle, carpenter, $21.05; Rtts-  sell-Law-Caulfield Co., $25.10; E. W.  Bishop, $28.45.  Communications were read from  McLeod & Brown, and Hallett & Shaw,  re matter of old board of trustees vs. A.  B. McNeil. The former presented a  claim of $27.50 costs of suit, and the  latter was inquiring the intention ofthe  board as to appeal. As this was a  matter in which no'provision had been  made financially, and as the estimates  tor-extraordinary expenditures, under  which head the case conies, do not provide for it, the whole matter was referred back to the city council.  The following bills were passed for  payment: Cameron & Huff, ��3.00;  White Bros., $3.50; Smith & McRae,  $5.00; A. G. Davis, $4.00.  The following resolution was passed:  Whereas, the legislative grant is  based on the average actual attendance, and  Whereas, the teachers complain of  irregular attendance, and in .-iomccases  total absence, be it  Resolved, that the council be petitioned to appoint a truant officer, under  instructions from the trustees.  It was decided to hold regular meetings hereafter on the first Saturday in  each month.  CITY COUNCIL  In Regular Weekly Session���Matters  of Interest Cousidered.  The city council of the corporation of  Greenwood met in regular session Monday night, with Mayor Nadeu, Aldermen Caulfield, Parker, McNeill, Clerk  Taylor, Solicitor Myers-Gray and Engineer Johnson present.  Minutes of previous meeting read  and approved.  The report of Engineer Van Buskirk  re city water supply was submitted,  read and referred to superintendent of  water works and chairman of committee on same.  The city engineer reported regarding  difficulty experienced from frozen  mains and labor and expense caused  thereby.  A communication from Hallett &  Shaw in the matter of the lawsuit with  Mr. McNeill, for alleged breach of contract, brought by a former board of  school trustees.Twth reference to appeal  of the case, read and referred to city  solicitor, and bill of costs from McLeod & Brown in same case, laid over  till legal advice is had.  The matter of enforcing ordinance  as to roaming horses and cattle was  discussed, but action deferred. But it  is the intention of the council to protect.citizen" sfrom depredations of this  nature.  It was reported to the council that  unauthorized parties were cutting wood  on the city's farm. After discussion  it was decided to look into the case, and  to call for proposals to rent the farm  to the best highest bidder.  A communication from the .board of  school trustees asking for the appointment of a truant office under instructions from the trustees, was read aud  referred. Teachers had complained of  lax attendance.  A committee was appointed from the  board of aldermen to meet**a committee  of citizens from Anaconda re water  question. These committees, at this  writing, are conferring.  The finance committee reported the  following bills correct:  Fire department S   1 95  S. M. Johnson    32 00  Electric Co  144 25  Cameron & Huff      3 00  C. J. McArthur      4 00  B. C. Times       27 50  A. G. Lachepelle    33 70  H. A. King & Co      1 00  and confirmed the  payment to Engineer Van Buskirk of $150.  All That Was Claimed For It.

The entertainment was an  improvement on anything of the kind  ever shown here. There was not one  among the large crowd present but  what left the theatre well pleased for  the time and money spent.���Republic  Record.  Will appear at the Auditorium Friday evening, March 18.

SEW MINING-:  COMPANY  Nellie    Cotton   Group   of  Claims  Chicago Men Have Organized a Strong  Company.  Information has been received that  the Chicago-Phoenix Mining company  has been organized in Chicago, for the  purpose of operating the Nellie Cotton  group of claims, about five miles from  this city. The cipital of the new company is stated- to be $500,000, and-the  members are understood to have suffi-  cien t funds to proceed with the develop-  ment of the group on a considerable  scale, which will be done as soon as  spring opens.  The Nellie Cotton gtoup consists of  the Nellie Cotton and Mystic mineral  claims, which are located south of the  Knob Hill mine. At one time they  were under bond for $5000 and considerable development work, was done.  Most of the work was done on the  Nellie Cotton, where there is' a* good  showing of phyrrotite ore. : A machinery plant is to be installed, and H. J.  Cole of Spokane .is said to be the manager of the new company. Last year  ���Mr. Cole examined' the' group,':as did  Cbl.;: W. M; ^Kidpath-and f r-'C.^aas.;  mining engineer ; of Spokane, and on  the strength of these reports the properties were secured by J. E. Eyerhart,  W. D. Everhart.and Mark Sands,of  Chicago, who, it is said, have formed  the new corporation for the purpose of  working the claims. Mining men. in  this section have had a favorable opinion of the Nellie Cotton, and.the negotiations for the acquirement of the  group have extended over a considerable space of time on account of some  flaw in the title that had to be straightened out first.  Liberal discunts on all winter under  wear at Huuter-Kendrick's.  Attendance at Public Schools.  Complaint is made by the teachers  of the Greenwood public school that  the attendance of the pupils is irregular, and that some steps should be  taken to compel better attendance.  Following is the attendance for Feb'y:  Boys Girls Total Av'ge  Division 1    -    25       27 52 43  Division 2   -    22       15 37 28  Total      47       42 89 71  As the yrovernment grant is based on  the average attendance, this showing  is considered bad, and an effort will be  ma-de to induce parents and children to  improve these figures.

Phoenix, March 8.���Last Saturdiy  Mayor Rumberger, on the application  of three aldermen, called a special  meeting of the city council for yesterday, the object being to get-the chief  of police, C. H. Flood, to resign, as  well as the police magistrate, W. R.  Williams.  The case grew out of a charge made  by a member of the tenderloin last  week against the chief, which was aired  in the pqlice coiirt. The women were  given ;< lecture by the judge, and here-  served his decision until he could confer with the board of police commissioners. This was done the same  evening, and the chief of police was ex-  onorated. The board,.of police commissioners consists of the mayor, .the  police magistrate and Aid. Birnie.  The latter did not concur iu the decision of the police board.  At the special meeting of the council  held yesterday the six members, consisting of Alderman Boyle, Delehay,  Birnie, McDonald, Porter and Marshall,  unanimously a committee to await on  the police board and secure the dismissal of Chief Flood, and to request the  police magistrate to resign as such and  as a member of the police board.  Every uieinberof the council supported  the resonltion, and it is given out that  they will resign in a body at the regular meeting of the council to be held  tomorrow evening, unless their wishes  are complied with.  D'Phe Tulanieen hotel and the store of  the A. E. Howes Co. were destroyed by  fire at Princeton, *B. C, recently, incurring a loss of 530,000 or more.

Great Mining Enterprise Sorely in  Need of Transportation Facilities  ���Between $2,000,000 and $3��-  000.000 Already Exrended.  from  mill.  extending for  Last week Chas. A. Andrus and  Monroe   Harmon   drove up   the  Similkameen  valley   to   Hedley,  B. C, and had a conference with  N.   K.   Rogers,   the manager of  the celebrated Nickel Plate mine,  and through the courtesy of that  gentleman were taken over much  of the property, says the Palmer  Mountain  Prospector.      For the  extent of work done, the machinery installed   and  the amcunt of  money expended there is no mine  in the country so little known as  the Nickel  Plate.    We have not  the space to devote to particulars,  but it can  be  said that no property on   the   coast   is in better  shape either as regards development or  the  improvements connected therewith.     Several miles  of tunnels,   drifts and  other underground  work   represents   the  development..   There  are  thousands of  tons of high  grade ore  blocked out.     Then there is an  electric railway that runs  and into the mine to the  There is  a  flume  several   miles   conveying   water  that is used  for   power.    A 40  stamp mill is set up.     There are  several enormous cyanide tanks  in place.    The buildings covering  a large space of ground are most  substantially built.    All the machinery, piping and material has  been   hauled   in   by teams over  mountain roads  from Pentictou.  Everything is almost in readiness  to commence operations, and yet  the  long  aud   expensive wagon  haul   for ores  and concentrates  stare  the company in the  face,  with the prospect .of eating up a  large proportion of  the profits.  All this work1 and outlay represents the expenditure of between  52,000,000 and S3,000,000.  But it is not the great mine itself that is of such interest to this  locality, as the prospects of a  railroad that is almost certain to  result from it. At the mercy of  freighters under present conditions, and being compelled to pay  out a large proportion of the value  " of the mine producHu hauling to  a railroad, the Nickel Plate company realizes the necessity of  direct railroad communication  with the.outside smelters. The  development of the mine has proceeded largely on the promise of  the building"of the V., V. & E,  road, and as that company is  slow of materialization the Nickel  Plate people propose to take the  problem in their own hands and  build a line down the Similkameen valley to connect with the  Great Northern system. So far  as financial ability is concerned  such a line would be a small item  to the combination behind the  Nickel Plate, and that something  will be done'towards carrying out  that project this year there can  be no question, unless the V., V.  & E* steps into the breech. Mr.  Rogers, who is a railroad, as well  as mining*, engineer will make a  trip through this country as soon  as the snow goes off, and make a  personal investigation of the  route, and from that visit we expect to hear a favorable report  upon the project.

The present situation in the Greenwood high grade belt is looking well.  The E. P. U. and Gold Finch, being  worked jointly are employing 16 men,  who are getting out some good ore. It  is said that a few daya ago ore was en  countered that assayed nearly ten  ounces in gold.  At the Elkhorn work is progressing  as usual, and indications are as promising as ever. About 17 men are  employed at this mine, and another  carload of fine ore was sent to the  Trail smelter today.  The Providence shipped two cars of  ore last week and one this week, the  latter car containing about 30 tons, all  of which went to the Trail smelter.  Heretofore the ore had been sorted,  part going out for treatment, and part  being treated at the local smelter. No  sorting is done now, all the ore going  to Trail. Work of sinking has been  prosecuted all winter at this mine, but  that has been stopped and drifting  commenced. Between 38 and 40 men  are constantly employed.  The Phoenix Storm Atoates-  The disturbances occurring in the  police circles in Phoenix this week, in  consequence of the alleged conduct of  the city marshal, and subsequent action  of the police commission in the matter,  which aroused a whirlwind storm of  public indignation, was partially subdued by the resignation of Marshal  Flood and the members of the police  commission in response to the unanimous demand by the city council. The  resignation of the police judge was at  first insisted on, but for the time being  this point was waived, in the interest  of peace. The time is at hand when  immoral and lawless conduct by persons in authority cannot be overlooked.  Those known to be of questionable  moral charater should never be deemed  fit to administer justice.  MINING NOTES.  Zinc is quoted $5.15���a five cent rise.  Camborne's monthly pay roll is $8000.  Atliu placers are reported to be  yielding $8 per pan.  The pay roll of Rossland mines  amounts to $90,000 a month.  The new lead refinery at the Trail  smelter is now in full blast.  Last week the Payne mine shipped  several cars of its clean iron to the Trail  smelter.  The demand for zinc is increasing.  Most all the business blocks in cities  now use zinc shingles for roofing.  The uses of zinc have doubled in five  years. It is the only metal that cannot  be replaced by some other metal.  The Anaconda mine, in Montana, is  the largest single producer of copper in  the world. Its annual production is  about 100,000,000 pounds.  Lead was quoted higher in London  and New York this week. The metal  was also strong around Port Arthur,  Ping Yang and Chemulpo.  The Waterloo mine at Camp McKinney is turning out gold bricks to  the value of S5000 a month. The ore  averages ��20 and the concentrates S100.  The Calumet aud Heclacopper mine*  in Michigan were opened in 1866, and  have paid S80,000,000 in dividends.  They are now in the hands of a receiver.  The Highland mine at Ainsworth is  working steadily. Two huudred tons  of concentrates arrived at the Hail  Mines smelter last week from that  mine.  Exports of copper from the United  States in 1873 amounted, in value, to  3259,076; in the year 1900 the exports  amounted, in value to 355,285,047.  Osniiriditim and p'.atiimni have been  found  in   the alluvial   gravels  of tlie  Cariboo district. Special appliances  are being installed at the Horsefly to  extract these metals.  The Rathmullen mine in the Boundary, which has been closed down for  about three years, has started up. The  Rathmullen is a good property but was  poorly managed.  G. W. Hughes, manager of the rich  Sunset mine, Slocan, disbursed a dividend of $6000 to the owners last week  This makes the tenth dividend to date  or a grand total of $60,000 in all.  Michigan, Montana and Arizona furnish, practically, all the copper produced in the United States, their combined production being nearly 540,000,-  000 pounds out of a total of 630,000,000  pounds.  Since the year 1860 the highest price  of copper in the United States was 55  cents a pound. This was in July, 1864.  Since the same year (1864)  the lowest  MINERAL ACT.

Here it is:  Seven years ago last Juri-* the Conservative government was in  power. Today the Liberals are in power and this is part ot their record  for the seven years past:  Seven years ago our revenue was S36,618,S91; today it is $63,739,271,  or nearly twice as much.  Seven year*? ago we had a deficit of $330,000; this year we had a  surplus of over $13,000,000, or a bcttcrinent of a little over 313,000,000.  Seven years ago our foreign trade was ��239,000,000; today it is  S459,0()0,000", or about twice as much.  Seven years ago the number of homesteads entered during the year  was 1,857; this year it was 31,343, or a little over 17 times as many.  Seven years ago our cattle trade amounted tc 5104,451; this year it  was $11,342,63+, or say eleven times js much.  Seven years ago we exported in oats 5273,861; this year we exported  82,583,171, or over nine times as much.  Seven years ago we exported in flour S718,433: this year we exported  $4,699,142^ or say six times as much.  Seven years ago our Territorial grant was 5267,000; this year it was  S957.000, 01 say four times as much.  Seven years ago our bank note circulation was S31,456,297; this year  it was 560,414,740, or say S2 to SI.  Seven years ago wc exported bacon to the value of 53,802,135; this  year we exported 515,455,174, or about four times as much.

Seven years rgo our mineral export was 34,419,170; this year it was  S31,064,861, or say seven limes as much.  Seven years ago it took the bonding of three quarter-sections of this  land to buy a bushel of seed grain from the government. This year lots  of this same land sold for one and two thousand dollars.  And last, but not least, seven years ago tons of Tory literature were  strewed over the width and breadth of this land abusing Mr. Israel  Tarte in every way imaginable.

It appears to have been the  case in the great postoffice scandals at the fountain head of libert}*  iu Washington, D. C, as was the  result in a debate in the bouse of  representatives over the passage  of the private pension bills which  brought out the fact that each  representative numbers the pension bills iu the order in which  he desires them passed, and that  the house "goes round" just as  often as it can during the session.  This amounts to four or five  times, so that each representative  gets that many of the bills passed.  The other hundred or two hundred bills that he.may introduce he  knows can not pass, and he is  practicing* deception on the old  soldiers.to lead them to think  that they have chances for an increase.  During his term of office Congressman Loud of California more  thairouce rose on his feet and in  a carefully prepared speech denounced the private pension bill  system: . This is the same congressman who protested against  the management of the postoffice  department. He at last became  so obnoxious to the powers that  were in control of -the postoffice  departments that it is claimed  Macheu, Beavers and the others  collected a fund and with the assistance of the pension attorneys  defeated Loud for reelection. He  became so incensed, it is alleged,  that he appealed to President  Roosevelt, who set the investigation on foot w.hich resulted in the  unearthing of the'vast frauds in  the postoffice department, and  some of the men who are credited  with having collected the funds  for the defeat of Loud are now  facing' penitentiary offences.  Loud was louder than they  thought   for.  The B. C. Copper Co., it is understood, has issued a circular to  its stockholders'announcing- the  abandonment of its plans of consolidating with- the Snowshoe Co.  The plan failed, it is said, because the Snowshoe company did  not meet the requirements* considered essential by the B. C. Copper company. Some take this result to portend a long delay in  the resumption of shipments  from the Snowshoe mine. This  my prove to be the effect, and it  may eventuate in the erection of  another smelter in the Boundary.  Then, again, it may lead to the  cousolidation of the Snowshoe  mine with the Dominion Copper  company aud the Montreal and  Boston Copper company interests.  Large pay-ore bodies which have  been proven are not to lie idle  permanently. This coming summer will witness great changes  in the Boundary, and all for the  betterment of its conditions. Not  oul}' will the smelter problems be  solved, but that of additional railway facilities as well.  It's a cold day when Grand Forks  cannot blow hot air, and yet all  these flouts at the pretty little  village ensconsed at the confluence of the north and west Kettle  waters are not wholly deserved,for  the concern that does not advertise  is, nine times in ten, a failure,  and if there is any virtue :in  "tooting your own horn," surely  that quiet little burg should get  there sooner or later. The latest  sensation wafted thitherward on  her heated zephyrs is certainly inspiring, if only to the unwary.  Now that they have the Kettle  Valley railway built, in their  minds, to Franklin camp, they  see it shooting across country  from that poiut to Spences' bridge  on the main Hue of the C. P. R.  Let tts hope their railwa}*- dreams  may prove realities.  The Grand Forks-Greenwood  stage did not go out last Sunday  morning owing to the badly drifted condition of the roads, which  made them so sidling teams could  notpass'-without taking-desperate  chances of capsizing. Before any  government aid could be secured  to repair the roads an appeal had  to be made through George A.  Fraser,Conservative member from  Grand Forks riding. To the mail  up a tree it would seem that Mr.  McBride is carrying partisanship  to a questionable degree when the  needs of a riding not represented  by one of his supporters is ignored. A government that does not  represent the whole people is a  misfit-in these latter days.  What's the matter with Fernie?  A few days ago a hotel keeper  visiting there lost $600 from his  inside pocket. And next a poor,  defenseless woman was relieved  of $1,800 iu treasure which she  carried concealed under skirts.  We'll just issue a note of warning  to Boundary editors to keep a.\vay  from Fernie.  A great howl goes up regularly about the polygamous mormons, but there is not much said,  about the partnership that exists  between every town and city of  any importance in Cauada and  the bawdy houses.  The postoffice department of  Canada earned a net profit of  nearly $400,000 in the last fiscal  year.  It has beeu decided to hold the  Republican state convention for  Washington at Tacoma, May 11,  when a state ticket will be nominated, and delegates to the national presidential nominating  convention will be elected. It  will be a supreme contest, so far  as the state is concerned, between  the people and the railroad forces.  As all Canadians are painfully  aware, railway influence in  politics and governmental policy  has heretofore proven a potent  factor, and British Columbia  especially will take a deep interest in the political struggle in  Washington now coming on. In  Canada as in the United States  the great question is, shall the  people, or the great railway combines dictate government policies!  The citizens of Grand Forks  are somewhat elated just now  over the showing made by a comparison of postal returns at  Greenwood and its own office,  which they hope will turn the  tide of home-seekers from the  storm-swept east into their gates.  The gross revenue of the Grand  Forks postoffice amounted to the  enormous sum of $175.51 more  than that of this city. Thereby  hangs a boom.  The Myers Creek News, printed at Chesaw, Okanog*an county,  Wash., says that county needs a  railroad, because it has more  square miles than Porto Rico, or  the states of Delaware or Connecticut; that they need a railroad more than a change of  county seat or a railroad commission.  British Naval Estimates.  The British naval estimates for  1904-5 show a net increase of  $12,190,000 over the estimates for  1903-4. The estimates total  $50,270,880 for new construction, of which $3,210,415 will be  devoted to the commencement of  new ships. The admiralty will  devote $9,050,000 to the purchase  of armor. Orders have already  beeu placed for nine submarine  vessels in this year's program.  DR. MATHISON  DENTIST  Naden-Flond Block, Greenwood. 1). C.  ft BOUNDARV VALLEY LODGE  ~'%*W^ No. 38.1. 0. O. F.

Engineer Van Busklrk's Report On  the Situation  To His Worship the Mayor and  Members or*the Council ok  the City op Gkeenwood.  Gentlemen :  i la considering the question of  water supply for a city or town,  the first and most important point  for consideration is that of the  quality of water that can be obtained.  .The second point is that of the  quantity, and the third should  ordinarily be that of cost.  Now although I am of the  opinion that the second and third  points of the question should always be considered in the above  order, I. am aware that in many  cases it may not be advisable for  a municipality to adhere strictly  to this rule, as such procedure  might result in depriving the  citizens of the benefit of a supply of water;which, although not  the best perhaps in all respects  would still be adequate for present needs, and which might assist the community in health  and growth until it has reached  a;stage where a more ambitious  and perfect system can be undertaken.  Again, it may be taken for  granted that in proceeding with  aiproject which will improve existing works, the money expended  on works which may possibly in  the future be discarded cannot be  considered as wasted so long as  the amount does not greatly exceed, that which would be payable  as interest and sinking fund on  the cost of new and more ambitious works.  fThe city of Greenwood is at  present supplied with water from  Twin Creek. The other available  sources of supply at the present  time are:  :1.   -Lind creek.  2. Eholt creek.  3. Boundary creek.  The present supply, according  to a measurement made by myself and Mr. S. M. Johnson, the  flow of Water during February,  1904, was at the rate of 390,000  U. S. gallons in 24 hours.  The water is taken direct from  the creek to a tank of 225,000  gallons capacity which serves as  ,a_distributing��� reseryoir.__ This,  tank is in bad condition and is so  connected to the supply and force  mains that repairs cannot be  made without depriving the city  of fire protection.  I find that about one-third of  the water flowing in this creek  comes from a branch creek entering the main creek at a distance of about one mile to the  east of the existing intake. The  main creek is undoubtedly badly  polluted by the drainage water of  the City of Phoenix, and I have  no hesitation in advising you that  iu furnishing water to its citizens  from such a source the City of  Greenwood is doing wrong. The  branch creek is not polluted in  any way at present and is not  likely to be so in the future.  :. Lind Creek.���This creek, according to a measurement made  in February, 1904, has a flow of  390,000 U. S. gallons in 24 hours,  and according to measurements  made by Mr. S. M. Johnson, has  a watershed of approximately  one-half more than that of Twin  creek. The water is not polluted  in any way whatever and is likely  to remain pure for many years to  come.  } I am of the opinion that the  flow of water in Twin creek and  Lind creek will at times be considerably less than that shown  by the measurements taken, but  j am also of the opinion that more  w^ter can be  obtained in a dry  At The Present Time IS ^  there is no other   which   will  bring in such   returns as this.  The price of coal has gone up all over the world, the consumption is enormous, to buy in any working, company now costs a small fortune.

Shares which can now be bought at a nominal sum will  reach bis: figures before long:.  I have still a few shares left and when they are gone it will be too late for the small investor to get in,   if  thing which will net you a good income, don't hesitate but buy at once.

C.  season fromi Lind creek than from  Twin creek.  - The flow of water in Eholt and  Boundary creeks was not measured, but I am of the opinion that  a very large quantity of water  can be obtained from Eholt creek,  and that a much larger quantity  than is ever likely to be required  by the City of Greenwood can be  obtained from Boundary creek.  - The quantity of water required  for domestic purposes in American cities aud town is approximately one hundred U. S. gallons  per head of population, while that  required in European cities aud  town is in the neighborhood of 40  gallons per head. The quantity  used in American cities can and  is being reduced by persistent effort on the part of officials and  by the use of metres on services,  nevertheless it seems to be almost impossible to cut the rate of  consumption to that of the European cities and towns.  I therefore have no hesitation  in recommending you to provide  for a consumption of one hundred  U. S. gallons per head of population.  It does not seem possible to estimate the future growth in population of the City of Greenwood.  There will no doubt be some  growth during the next three or  four years, consequently I have  jissumed that in that time you  will require to supply three  thousand people or double your  present population. I think this  is a safe assumption and probably  the number is much too large.  Assuming a population of 3000  and a consumption of 100 U. S.  gallons per head, you will therefore require 300,000 U. S. gallons  of water in each twehty-four  hour6.  The above quantity, according  to measurements taken, can be  obtained from Lind creek, and in  case of shortage iu a very dry  season which may aud probably  will come, an additional quantity  can be obtained by means of a  small flume from the branch of  Twin creek hereinbefore referred  to; so that I am inclined to ad-  Arise you that you will have  enough water from Lind creek,  Continued on pajfe six.

CITY'S WATER SUPPLY.  Continued from pa^e five.  and the unpolluted branch of  Twin creek, for the present and  in all probability for several years  to come.  I am of the opinion that, should  the City of Greenwood grow to  any considerable size, the citizens  must look to Boundary creek as a  source of water supply. It may  be possible to obtain enough water  for a town of large population  from Eholt creek, but the chances  of pollution appear to be very  much greater for this creek than  for Boundary creek.  The procuring of a water supply from either of these creeks  would involve a large expenditure  of money,-and in view of th.e fact  that water can be obtained from  Lind creek at a very small comparative expenditure, I have concluded to recommend the construction of works required to render  this supply available.  The works required to supply  water for domestic and fire service from Lind creek will be as  follows:  1. A tank or storage basin of  sufficient capacity to furnish  water for extinguishing fire.  2. A pressure main from the  storage basin to the distribution  system. The pipe should be of  sufficient size to deliver enough  water under pressure for at least  two hydrant streams.  3. An extension of the distribution system. This pipe should  be of sufficient size to deliver  enough water under pressure for  at least two hydrant streams.  3. An extension of the distribution system into the Anaconda  addition to meet the pressure,  pipe from the tank or storage  basin. The pipes used in making  this extension must have capacity  to deliver the quantity of water  required for two hydrant streams,  aud any pipes already in the distribution system which are in the  line of connection between the  center of the business section of  Greenwood and the Lind creek intake should be capable of furnishing the above quantity.  The pipe from the storage  basin or tank to the distribution  system should be at least seven  inches in diameter and will be  2f>00 feet in length. The main  from Lind creek to the intersection of Silver and Dundee streets  should be not less than seven  inches in diameter and will be  4400 feet in length.  The details of construction of  storage basin, etc., I have discussed with Mr. S. M. Johnson  and I am satisfied that he will be  able to give any information that  you may require.  The proposed addition to the  water works system of the city of  Greenwood will give the city a  duplicate supply system and will  enable you to make repairs or alterations to either system without  danger.  The two supply systems will  furnish sufficient water in the  business section of the city to permit of live thoroughly efficient  fire streams being used at the same  time.  The estimate of cost of work  proposed, made by S. M.Johnson,  M. E., is attached hereto. I advise getting tenders for delivery  of pipe at as earl}' a date as pos-*-*  sible, as pipe can usually be procured at lower prices at this time  of year than later.
