 llio  iilat-ari   ���  $t#-\. : .Llbrar  f  0  1  ��  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17  1902.  No. 8.  r  -**-���  Percy F. Godenrath Returns  From Similkameen.  Development Work Carried on During  Summer,  Canada's Share in the Fair  Percy F. Godenrath returned to  from the Similkameen district on Monday last and left for Spokane to be absent about 10 days. Speaking of the  trip he said : "It is nearly a year since  I was last in the Similkameen and during that period much has been done to  demonstrate the fact that valuable  seams ot coal underlay what is described as the Princeton eoal basin.  This basin, according- to William Black-  more M. E., who is consulting engineer for the Ashnola Coal Company, is  roughly nine miles in length by from  seven to eight miles in width. It contains both lignitic and bituminous  seams of coal. During the summer  three different companies have been  exploiting the coal, measures at depth  by the aid of bore drills. The Ashnola  Coal Company's drill was sunk to a  depth of 1,000 feet, on landJadjoining  the Vermilion .Forks Mining & Development Company. At a depth of 700  feet the drill passed through a six foot  seam which is believed to be- bituminous. With a six inch shale parting, a  second seam was encountered four feet  in thickness, making practically a ten  foot-seam, i These are the'upper seams  in a series which consists of three zones  and it is estimated that the whole of  ��� the coal bearing strata will be passed  through at a depth of 1,500 feet. This  fully demonstrates the predictions  made by Mr. Blackmore, last fall, and  also establishes the fact that whether  or not coking coal is found, the coal  will make a high grade steam and domestic fuel  "From Mn Earnest Waterman, manager of the Vermilion Forks Mining &  Devetapment Company, an English  company, I received considerable data,  regardjng^J:he_i_operation1--of^his--,:Coni-.  pany's bore-drilling. This company  has two coal leases one for 312 acres,  immediately adjoining the townsite of  Princeton and another for 640 acres.  The bore operations have been confined  to the townsite, and two holes have  been sunk respectively 280 and 303 feet,  and a third is being put down. On the  lirst, at a depth of seventy feet a seam  18 feet five and one half inches was  passed through, as also two other  seama four and six feet in thickness.  Below the larger seam no other coal  was struck. In the second hole at a  depth of 202 feet a five foot seam was  passed through. The third hole at the  time I left Princeton was down 110 feet  and in sandstone. The analysis of the  sample of coal taken fram the second  showed 47 per cent carbon, and when  one considers that the coal is more or  less mixed in with the sandstone drillings the per centage is good. Samplings ofthe coal taken fpom the pit1  give as high as S3 per cent carbon.  In fact it is a high grade steam and domestic coal.  The third drill was in charge of  Alexander Sharp, M. E., representing  the Holt syndicate. Absolutely no information was obtainable in camp re.  garding what was encountered, beyond  the fact that several seams of coal  were penetrated;' The information I  obtained, while not authentic, stated  that the bore was sunk 823 feet.  Certain it is that Mr. Sharpe expressed  himself as pleased with the results obtained,  "The Osoyoos & Similkameen Coal &  Exploration Company which I represent has acquired 10 coal claims, in  different sections of the basin. After  title has been obtained the ground will  be surveyed. We have some splendid  showings of coal."  Will be Represented in all Important  Departments*  World's Fair, St. Lotus, Oct., 20���  President Francis has assigned to Canada a commanding site for its building  at the World's Fair. ' It will be near  the Administration Building and near  one of the main entrances. Mr. William Hutchinson, the Canadian Com-  miisioner accompanied by W. H. Hay,  chief decorator and superintendent of  installation, has been here to receive  the allotment. The Dominion will not  only have a special pavilion of its own,  but will also be represented in the  principal departments. The exhibits  from that country will be representative of agriculture, horticulture,  mines and minerals, forestry, livestock  and manufactures.  Canada's pavilion will be a rendezvous for Canadian, visitors, and will be  tastefully decorated of trophies made  up of fruits, cereals and ' grasses.  While in the.city Commissioner Hutchinson conferred with President Francis  and other officials of the Exposition,  He will now make estimates of the  ���pace required in the exhibit buildings.  The commissioner has available for  his purposes about $125,000, and he  has also the machinery of an established and permanent exposition bureau  which forms a part of the department  of agriculture.  Il  IMG  How the Day Was Spent in  Greenwood.  II  Delightful at Home Given by Local  Oddfellows.  Mining Notes.  A rate of $2.50 a ton has been made  by the Kettle Valley lines for trial  shipments of ore from the Republic  mines to the smelters at Trail and  Nelson.  Immense deposits of high grade iron  ore have been discovered . in the Cascade mountains in the state of Washington by prospectors from Everett.  Blessing" of the Bell.  Interesting Service in Sacred Heart.  Mining in Surnpter, Ore., is enjoying a mild boom caused by a rich  discovery having lately been made on  the Cracker-Oregon properties.  C. W. H. Sansora will start work in  a few days upon the Gold Finch. This  property was bonded and leased a few  months ago by Jas, Sutherland and  Phil McDonald of Greenwood and  several cars of high grade ore were  extracted arid shipped to the Trail  smelter, netting the operators a handsome profit. . Now _ihaLJMr._-jSa.nsp.nr  has got the property back in his own  hands he will do some mining on his  own account.  Several large nuggets have been  picked up on Dragon Creek about 15  miles from Barkerville. One of the  nuggets was worth $110. The property is owned and operated by  Tacoma capitalists.  A trial shipn.ent of 165 tons of ore  from the Iron Mask mine at Kamloops  to a Boundary smelter yielded a net  profit of $20.00 per ton.  It is announced that a new company  has been formed for the purpose of  acquiring the Rathmullen group in  Summit camp.  The Cariboo Gold Mining company  of Camp McKinney will declare a  dividend of two and a half per cent on  the capital stock next month.  Sloean Star Fatality.  Do you use Blue Ribbon Tea ?  The Sloean Star mine has had its  first fatal accident. On Thursday  evening David Kerr, tl.e son of a P.  E. I. doctor, who has been an employee at the Sloean Star for several  years was crushed to death by the fall  of about a ton of rock in the tunnel  connecting the above property with  the Silversmith.  Kerr was clearing the track of muck  preparatory to running out his car  when the mass of rock fell striking  him on the back and head killing him  instantly.  $5���$10 - $15���Sewing machines for  sale or rent A.

All places of  business were closed and many took  advantage of the glorious weather to  spend a day in the open air.  In the afternoon a shooting tournament was held at the athletic grounds.  There was a large attendance of spectators, who thoroughly enjoyed the  efforts made to hit the bull'seye. In  fact it appeared as if some of the contestants were shooting under a misapprehension. They evidently considered that the object of the contest was to  avoid piercing the bit of canvas placed  against the hill. From this point of  view they succeeded admirably. On  the other hand, some exceptional scores  were made, when it is considered that  it was the first shoot ever held in  Greenwood, and that the rifles were of  every age and make.  There were two contests, both 200  yards. In the first each contestant  was given five trials, the possible score  being 25. There were twenty entries.  W. Hi Webb and G. E. Richardson tied  for first place with a score of 17. * The  first six were as follows :  -;���"���**' W.H. Webb.:..vU;.......:.J.:.'J-..'.-17;  G. E. Richardson..  17  A. Logan 14  C. E.

In the second contest the contestants  had three shots, with a possible score  of 15. A. Wilmot was the victor, the  highest scores following :  A.

Law and J. L. White.  It  was  decided  that  they  shoot until  one or the other hit the target,  when  the  fortunate one should be declared  the victor.   After  several   rounds   of  ammunition had been used, the scorer  announced  that Mr. Law was the better shot, a3 he had succeeded in making  an outer.   Mr.  White states  that  he  has evidence that the scorer had become tired  and  that he made this announcement simply to end the contest.  It is likely that this charge against  the scorer will be investigated further.  Those taking part thoroughly enjoyed the outing, and  judging   by   the  large number of entries and the  interest shown by the spectators, there is  no good reason* why a strong rifle association should not be organized here.  In the evening the Oddfellows  were  at  home in   their   comfortable   lodge  room'to about one hundred  members  and their friends.    Cards and various  other games  were played, an interesting programme  of songs,   music and  speeches  was carried  out,  and   tasty  refreshments  served.     Everyone  was  made to feel at home and the committee in charge, Messrs.  Holmes, Mortimer and McKenzie, were congratulated  on all sides for the success of the affair.  At the various homes the day  was  quietly spent.   Mrs. Caulfield gave an  afternoon   at   her   cosy   residence on  Kimberley avenue, which was  attended by a large number of ladies.    Turkeys and other good things were plentiful at homes and hotels.    While there  is  no  boom in Greenwood, it is something to be thankful for that there is  no distress, but that all have plenty.

Rossland is here spending  his holidays and seeing his numerous  old time friends. ���  R. G. Sidley, J. P.. Anarchist Mountain, was in the city this week. Mr.  Sidley reports an exceptional harvest  this year. The yield was prolific, and  the splendid weather permitted harvesting the crop in the very best shape.  Mr. Sidley himself has tons of grain,  bnt he is in the same predicament as  other farmers in that vicinity���without  a market. They are anxiously awaiting the advent of a railway, when the  Anarchist Mountain district will become one of the most important agricultural sections of the province.' The  acreage is there, the soil is rich and  seemingly inexhaustible, and the climate perfect.  In the meantime the farmers are  feeding the most of the grain, and selling cattle and hogs. The long haul on  wagons would eat up the sale price for  grain at the nearest market���Greenwood.  Mr. Sidley's name has been connected with the alleged jumping of the  Waterloo claim in Camp McKinney.  The facts are that Mr. Bennett, who  re-staked the Waterloo, held a claim  near the Waterloo in conjunction ���'with-  Mr. Sidley. This claiin rati out, and  Bennett re-located at midnight in another's name. At three o'clock the  following morning the then foreman  of the Waterloo jumped Bennett's  claim and adversed his record. He  went to Mr. Sidley for advice, and as  the latter is a Justice of the Peace and  well versed in the mining law, he  pointed out that as. the Waterloo company had allowed its free miner's license to lapse, the Waterloo claim was  vacant and open for re-location. Bennett promptly relocated the claim, and  now negotiations are underwayjfpr a  cessation of hostilities.  The Clarendon after being renovated  and refitted throughout has been reop  ened with Fred.

Only about  15  men  are at work on the properties  around Beaverdell  and there is no one  left at Carrni and not a single miner is  working between   West    Bridge   and  Beaver Creek.     This state of affairs  he of course  Jays to the non-completion  of  the  West Fork wagon road, as  all the properties in the district upon  which  development    work   has   been  done are looking well, and several of  them are  in a position to begin shipments as soon as there are any  transportation   facilities   to  the Boundary  reduction works.

Greeting : You occupy an important position in the g-ovemment of this  province. When you took charg-e of  the Lands and Works department you  inaugurated certain reforms that indicated a better condition of affairs  and the hope that the spending-department of the- government would be  exploited in the interests of the people  and with the view of developing the  natural resources of the pioviuce. But  like most men who abandon principle,  for expediency and endorse any leader  or any policy to retain position, you  hive proved a disappointment. The  Lands and Wo;ks department has retrograded to the position which it so  long and so consistently occupied and  through it, it is apparently impossible  for the people to secure any measure  of justice.  In nothing have you more griveously  disappointed than in the matter of the  "WestForkrbad^" This isTii'o He w "subject. Your attention lias been directed  to this important public work by delegation after delegation, by petition  after petition, by representatives in  the legislature, by your colleagues in  the cabinet and by the public press  who have made the most of the scandal j b0 that you can get out of the scrape  attached to the miserable   fiasco.    You j as  cheaply   as  possible.     But  things  uinbia that while other large constituencies received only 514,500 for  roads, streets, bridges and wharves,  East Yale received $27,250. The reason  you offered for this large appropriation  was that money was needed for the  completion of the West Pork roa'1.  When it was suggested to you that a  special vote should be made for this  purpose and the East Yale vote reduced to that of similar constituencies  yoti replied }hat such a course was not  necessary -but that the West Fork road  could be built with the. extra money  in the East. Yale appropriation.  The reason for-this unusual proceeding is now apparent. The East  Yale district was subdivided by the  redistribution bill. A new constituency was created south of Penticton  and Mr. Price Ellison was left in  p-aceful possession of the rich agricultural Okaiiagan valley. You and  Mr Ellison are evidently labouring  under the impression that the new  district south of Penticton is entitled  to no public money for public works.  While t'ie farmers of the Okanagan  are enjoying a plethora road work and  a saturnalia on public funds, it is impossible to secure the expenditure of  a dollar in necessar*.- public works in  the unfortunate, newly created district in the south. Is the whole of the  $27,250 going to be expended in the  vicinity of Vernon where Mr. Ellison  resides. That can certainly be done as  the vote is a general one, but it is not  keeping faith with the legislature.  It is said that you are never happy  unless following an ignis fatuus and  that one E- H. Thurston, a gentleman  of England, is it iu this case. Some  time ago Mr. Thurston offered to build  a cheap road up the West Fork and  you have been kicking yourself that  you did not accept this offer. You  hope that he may yet make a similar  pfl:er which  you  are willing to accept  have invariably promised to do something, but nothing has-been done. You  are aware that many people went into  the West Fork country and invested  their money there believing that the  word of a man occupying the prominent position which you hold was worthy  have   changed    with   Mr.   Thurston,  When   he   made   thai    offer   he   was  anxious to get a road lo haul out Carnii  ore.    Si nee  then he has offered to buy  adjoining  properties  but   thought the  price asked   loo  high.    He is wealthy  and   has    wealthy    associates.      The  of soma credence.

Boston, Oct. 11.���Sir Frederic Borden, Canadian minister of Militia, who  is a visitor in this city, in an interview  today made known the fact that the  Canadian and British governments had  decided to jointly establish a fast  steamship service between Halifax and  "Liverpool with an annual subsidy of  .Sl,l."25,000  i'or three years.  It is   practically   decided,   Sir  Frederic said, to establish   without delay   a  service beg" inn inf.-; with 20 knot boa's to  be accorded a subsidy of $750,000 a year  from    the   Canadian   government and  $375,000   additional   from  "the British  g-overnment.    He   could not   say  yet  whether the Canadian Pacific company  - or syndicate of steamship companies  -comprising- the AllatisyElder/Dempster  and other lines would get the contract  The  steamers will make their terminus, in the winter at least, at Halifax.  The terminus iii  the United   King-dom  will probably lie Liverpool.  Touching the siibjvel uf reciprocity  with tile United States, the minister  said that the Canadians had made advancements at various times in the  list 20 years, but he declared that'they  had met such cold receptions at Washington that they latterly have become  -csnviuced that the government there  was no''disposed to m ike a fair agreement,, and Canada therefore turned her  alsewhere ��� with    splendid    results.

As the bass had already been removed from the Government ponds near  Belleville, and all arrangements made  for their shipment -west'before the can-  ners' complaint was received, it was  decided to.place the.fish in the lakes in  Alberta lying- between Calgary and  Edmonton. ��� The special car conveying  the black bass will leave Ottawa today  for Calgary.  The above despatch will not prove  interesting reading to the people of the  interior. After long and continued  effort they succeeded in arranging with  the Department of Marine and Fisheries for the transplanting of black bass  to some of the interior lakes. As these  lakes find an outlet iii the Columbia  river, and as the salmon in the Columbia do not rise above the Dalles, it is  difficult to understand why the salmon  can tiers interfered. The stocking of*  these interior lakes would not have interfered with their business in anyway. In any case they should not,  like the coal baron of Pennsylvania,  have assumed that they are possessed  of divine rights and every whim of  theirs must be obeyed.  It is said that black bass "are voracious, but in this respect they are not  in it with the salmon canners.  .The people of Greenwood aud Cascade went to considerable expense in  arranging- for the shipment; They  sent men to Revelstoke to meet the  fish and all are greatly disappointed.  The department we think exercised  undue haste in listening to the complaints of people, who were not interested in the matter. .As was stated it  is difficult to understand why B. C.  canners should be so anxious about  black bass who if they started seaward  would reach the ocean only by the way  of Astoria, Ore. Possibly the canners,  J i^ejhe-TOgues. alls tan d^ tp g gthg j=atidi  that temptation might be for ever re  moved from those who .stettl ami tho.-o  who borrow but return not again, ami  we be left in peaceful and regular pus-  session of our literary food.  Yours admiringly  and respectfully,  C. '& W. Land Reserve.  they were looking after the interests  of their American brethren.  Newspapers have a nasty habit of  never reaching the persons to whom  they are addressed. It is difficult to  say where the fault lies. A number of  reasons could be suggested but the  indignant subscriber in nearly every  instance blames the poor publishers.  Every week brings one or more protests. The language is sometimes  moderate���sometimes it isn't. It is  not often however that we are blessed  with an effusion similar to that received from an esteemed subscriber in  Liverpool, England. The mail service  must have been treating him in a  shameful way before he could be induced to pen the following to the  'editor of the Times :  Dear StR : Reading the cheerful  and seductive remarks burst upon an  admiring world from your Editor's  Easy Chair on the'Sth of September,  we feel that what has at long been a  profound mystery to us has at last  come to the light of day, as in one of  the "big commercial centres of Great  Britain" it has puzzled us to account  for its non-appearance on many occasions during the year. Now we  understand that our copy is some-  ttmes borrowed (and not returned) and  sometimes stolen by an admiring but  uuder-.-icrupulous non-subscribing public. As "we greatly appreciate the  news, the wit, and the humor, of your  honored publication we should rejoice  greatly if all the inhabitants of the  Boundary district would become subscribers  to  the Green-wood Times, so  By a curious anomaly governments  by their passivity ignore the very  functions for which they exist. A concrete illustration is the failure of the  Dunsmttir administration to the reserve  on certain government lands in the  Boundary district, thus retarding, or  more strictly speaking, obstructing the  development ' of vast resources only'  awaiting the application of capital and  labor to be converted into tangible  wealth. Some years ago this entire  district was blanketed with an official  reserve iu order to enable the C. P. R.  to select land it was entitled to under  a clause in the charter of the Columbia  & Western railway. The C. P. E.  having made its selections, and the  balance remaiuing vested in the government no reason exists why this governmental interdiction should not be  abolished with all possible speed. As  long as this reserve is maintained prospectors are debarred  from making  lo-  A'A.X^AAAAA*X^X^nX4A<^<KKMX*AAAAAA  V    . ' .-''  1  I  A  cations  for   coal  or  prelrolemn.

In that learned,legal language, which  is always so unique and expensive, a  sitting of the Supreme Court as a  Court of jjAssize, Nisi Prius, Oyer  and Terminer, and general gaol delivery, will be held in 'Greenwood on the  27th inst. Owing to the criminal cases  originating in this district having  been tried at Nelson, there will be  none- here unless some citizen is good  enough to take the rather unusual proceeding of seriously offending the law.  It has not vet been announced who is  coming here to preside, but as the  Chief Justice is taking the interior  circuit, it is likely he will decide to  Cyme in here.  There will be some interesting civil  suits. Among the��e will be that of  the Greenwood EUctric Company, Ltd..  vs. t|ie Waterous Engine Company,  Ltd., for damages for breach of war-  :���raiity.iof-.-.aii.i engine. -^-The--plaintiffs  allege that a McEwen Simple Engine  18x18, purchased by Duncan Mcintosh  as trustee, for them in November of  1899 and received in the following January, was not properly . constructed,  was defective mechanically, and consequently was not first class machinery  according to wairanty. They accordingly claim (a) cost of removing defective parts of engine and replacing  same with properly constructed machinery, f.945, and (b) for loss of fuel  caused by said defective construction,  438 tons per annum, or in two years  and a half 1,095 tons at S5.6S per ton���  $6,186.75 ; total $7,131.75. Defendants  deny warranty as alleged or otherwise,  or that plaintiffs have suffered alleged  or any damage by reason of any act or  fault of defendants, and make counter  claim for S341.75 for repairs made on  two occasions to engine at plaintiff's  request.  Another action pending, one, however, that in the absence of the defendant from the province is not likely to  come . before the court just yet, is that  of S. F. Parrish vs. R. Wallace Jakes,  to obtain specific performance of an  agreement re a one-half interest in the  Bell mineral claim. This claim is reported to be one of the most promising  of a number situate on Wallace mountain, near Beaverdell, West Fork of  Kettle river. The half interest that is  the cause of this action was. a couple  of years ago, willed to Dr. Jakes by  Alex. Wallace, an old time prospector  in the Boundary, who died in Dr. Jakes'  hospital about the time mentioned.  This interest was sold to Mr. Parrish,  who requires completion of the transaction.
