The New  York World in its financial column,  deals ,wjth..th*e, matter,, in  this modest  "Reportsare*current in copper,"mining circles that a consolidation is contemplated of the producing mines and  smelters in the Boundary Creek District  of British Columbia. It is understood  that ^the plan under, consideration will  include the British Spolutnbia Copper  Company, the Montreal and Boston  Copper Company and tlie Granby Smelter, .'in this connection it is stated that  C. A. Starbuck, President of New York  *������... .V,   I *,���  *i :������'***; *' 1-  Air Brake Company; -owns a controlling interest in .the*.British Columbia  Copper Company.; j'-He is said to have  purchased the stock in the company  formerly owned by J.

It;;niay be stated that'.''negotiations  looking to such mi amalgamation an  being carried on at the' present -time.'  Mr.vStarbuck is a large'shareholder in  "' thti-Granby Mir ing. & Smelting Coni  pany as' well. Should'these negotiations be successful all the present  ' smelters would be utilized and another  large smelter "erected at. the mouth .of  *-> .   , 1 .... *;   '     ,*     J        I .**     .'*  .Eholt CreoU.*- In   any   castf, 'the'Do-  -.-^.JOV,li2.ll^JPP?*r-i?omPail,y nas decided  to begin work at an early date whetlfer  there*' iis**'*'*ah**i' "atfnalgahiation or not  Should.,,the amalgamation suggested  from New1 Yord not be carried out,  there are .others-(proposed which may  meet with greater success.

'shafts ranging from 17 to 40 f��et in  depth and 900 feet of opdn outs. The  work discloses an ore body 200 feet in  length and 600 feet? wide on surface.  An ore body which runs from the Buck-  horn across the Arlington and Burns  has been uncovered for a width of 212  feet by crosscuts and. shafts. .These  ore bodies were sampled by J, C. Haas  M.;E., and values from $15.45 gold and  20 1-5 per cent copper down to 11-3 per.  cent copper and 65 cents in copper were  secured.  Mr. Shallenberger is <5ne of. the pioneers of the "Boundary. He has been  developing the Cresent and other properties in the district. 'He is conservative and. reliable and with an '.option  on one of. the most promising group of  claims in the district he should hare  no difficulty in securing capital to develop the same. *��� ������*���'*: \  H. H. SHalieribergefi the well known  mining man* this week*' secured from  the trustees of the Bielenberg estate,  an -option on the Arlihgton-Buins  groilp of mineral claims in South Dead-  wood camp. Mr. Shallenberger left on  Wednesday for the east. He will visit  St. .-Paul,. St., Louis,. Duluth, Chicago  and other centres with a view to inier-  estingxapital to develop the properties.  The Arlington-Burns is one of the  most promising group of claims in the  district. They were located bv the  late "Coint" Bielenberg whose good  luck and .gop'd. judgment in mining  matters, combined to make htm the  possessor of valuable mining properties.* About three years ago the"Cbunt"  as he was'.'fainilarly* known, went to  New York and succeeded in interesting  capital in the company wliich he'.had  organized. He made arrangements' to  dispose bf.a-.lairg'e block of stock-' and  the *. Arlington-Burns group .ywould  doubtless have' :.been .'developed 'but,  shortly after returning here, Mr. Bielenberg contracted an illness which  terminated in his death. This of course  put an end to negotiations for the sale  of stock and -the * properties have not  been developed since'then."  The Arlington-Burnr group adjoins  the Buckhorn group and comprises, the  Arlington, Burns* Bl.ue.Bell, Buckhorn  No, 2, and Burns Fraction..-.. Mr." Biel-  enbetg did considerable development*  Work   on   the   property   including   10  -The -Present mineral claim, owned  by the Greenwood Cresent Gold Mining and Milling Company, of Spokane,  has had considerable work done on it  during the. last few monthj. H. H.  Shallenberger has a lease of the property and an option on a controlling interest of the stock. The company sunk  a prospect shaft to a depth of aj.out 30  feet some time ago - between- cropping*,  that appeared to indicate theocciirreuce  of tvvo veins running* parallel at'*, about.  -Wfeet apart. A cr<.ss-cut, cut-one of  these_ at the 80 foot level a�� about:-60;  feet.'ffb'iirth&sh^  in the other direction on {the SO foot  level shpuld.encounter the other vein  at about.30 feet from the shaft. A drift  run 75.feet on 'the' lead already cut  shows it to be a big vein with a* quartz  gangue, having, a paystrealt of about  twelve inches of good ore. Some 80  feet ahead. of this drift, which runs  unco the'hiUandso gives greater depth  us it gets farther in, there is what on  the surface appears to be a big cross  lead of arsenical ore into which several  st* iugersof good ore appear to run  from the direction of the shaft.' About  20d feet'in the oppbsita"direction"knottier prospect shaft lias been' sUnk 18  feet on wh.it is thought to be the second  ot the parallel veins above mentioned.  .Near this an open cut has been run  siuto the hill, cuuingt.tie ore, which has  oeeu .followed some 25. feet and now  n;es a face 20 feet. A shaft is to be  auuK on this 20 feet, giving a depth of  7o feet from the surface. . This ore  s'uoot is up two feet in width, averaging about 16 inches, of which from 4 to  10 inches is pay ore giving* good values  in gold and silver with.,grey'copper  occurring in it as well. A third prospect shaft, sunk 22 feet distant about  200 feel in an opposite, direction to that  of the first named shaft, shows another  cross lead, about two feet in width and  having stringers of high grade silver  ore. Mr. Shallenberger is pushing development; confident that, the Cresent  will justify the expenditure.  The Cresent was located in 1893 and  is now Crown-granted. It is situate in  Skylark camp, is ubout two miles from  Greenwood, and adjoins the Lake group  upon which last yearja shaft was sunk  165 feet and a crosscut run 75 feet.  Both properties give promise of turning out well after sufficient development work shall have been done to open  up the ore veins already discovered on  them.  P. Lc.Qnderwood the vice-president  of the B. C. Copper company and W.  fi. Thomas, the company's consulting  engineer arrived in the city from New  York on Wednesday evening and will  remain here about ten days inspecting  the company's mines and smelter.  Mr. Underwood with .his late partner  Mr. Tichenor were the organizers of  the company which, developed the  Mother Lode. H�� was always confident that the mine would turn out all  right and though he might have sold  his stock at a large figure, he retained  a heavy interest. He can now assure,  himself that his judgment was not in  error and that the big mine will soon  be paying regular dividends. Mr.  Underwood did not care to discuss the,  various rumors of an amalgamation of  the big Boundary properties.  LOCAL   AND   PERSONAL.  :. C. A. E. Shaw has gone to Kereraeos,  under instructions from the provincial  survey department, to correct errors in  surveys in the Similkameen made by  other surveyors. He will probably be  away from Greenwood about a month.  Mrs. J. H. Mathot of this city  received the sad news this week that  her sister had died in Toronto. The  deseased was a sister in St. Joseph's  Convent in the Que*it-xity. and*.: was:  ^bant?37^iM*w'o*J''iigerU''':.'  Some Big Movements in-Transportation Circles-Grand  Trunk to Build to Coast���V.

Copper Company's smelter, Greenwood had a narrow escape.from death.  With; two, other men he was engaged  in emptying ore-from^a; number of fail-'  way dump cars into the smelter ore  bins. When releasing the' lever of one  car he didnot'take the customary precautions for his own; safety,*, with the  result that he lost his balance and stepped, on the ore just as it commenced, to  fall through into the bin.below.' About  half the contents of*a'30-ton.car of. ore  fell on him, causing ttum^rous cuts and  contusions about his face and body.'  Fortunately the ore'had been passed  through a rock crusher at thij.mine previous to'being loaded on the car, otherwise had' it been*large*lumps, as' is  often the case in shipping ore not'  crushed, the heavy rocks, falling 10 or  12 feet on him, must have nearly pounded the life out of him. He was taken  to the Greenwood hospital, where he  rallied* from the severe .shock  his system h*ed sustained, is now doing  well, no serious internal injury having  been received.  There have been but few new developments in the railwav situation  during the week. Surveyors are at  work between Curlew and Midway and  another party is in the- vicinity of  Myers Creek. They are cross-sectioning preparatory to building the road.  When active construction will begin it  is difficult to say but, all indications  point- to the early- commencement and  rapid completion of the road from Curlew to Greenwood.   ���  ��� Pat Welch whose firm built the  greater portion of the .Columbia and  Western* railway and also had heavy  contracts on the V. V. & E. from  Marcu8*to Republic, arrived in Greenwood on Saturday and left for Spokane  on Monday. Mr. Welch drove from  here to Curlew and also from Midway  westward towards Myers Creek. He  said,he was looking round but he knew  nothing definite regarding the intentions of-the V. V. & E. flis partner J.  W Steyvart was then in St. Paul in  consulation with Mr. Stephens and  other officials of the Great Northern  company and he would know in a few  days what would be done.  A gentleman heavily interested in  the Boundary had.a- lengthy interview  , with: J. J.: HilL in - New York a short,  time^ago. The flatter intimated that  he was;..much~impressed, with .the importance of the Boundary and the  large volume of transportation business  that the district would afford. He added that'Boundary-'system "of his road  would be constructed as qxiiekiy as  possible and that this work would be  completed before the line was extended  westward.  It looks as if B. C. was going to get  .many railways. The Grand Trunk  officials have announced that their  road will be continued to the coast.  The C. P. R. will not oppose the extension judging from the remarks of  Sir Thos. Shanghnessv. In an interview he said :  * "Our Grand Trunk friends are  undertaking a very big contract.  There is nothing-.in-_the._announcement  that tieed cause the Canadian Pacific  the slightest concern. In this vast  country of ours there is room for a  great many miles of railway. Twenty  years ago, when the Canadian* Pacific  enterprise was inaugurated, the entire  country..from Pembroke to the Pacific  coast, a distance of upwards of 25C0  miles.'*was a bleak,-barren waste, practically uninhabited. Today the Canadian Pacific operates in that territory  over 6000 miles of railway on the main  line and branches, and this mileage is  increased year by year. The construction of a*, line north of us will involve  years of labor and millions upon millions of capital. . A gratifying feature  of the announcement is the absence of  any reference to government bonuses  or subventions. The Grand Trunk  company has declared its determination to build, so that any aid towards  the enterprise from either the Domin-  .%**X^:<*<"H��M">4��&<"W^  Boundary Ore Shipments.

They even went  further. They placed every obstacles  in the way of Mr. Hill because he was  foolish enough to want' to build railways in this province without a subsidy. The new premier nas promulgated a railway policy which includes  aid in the shape of a cash subsidy and  nn enormous land grant to the Canadian Northern. It is difficult to see  how the people will endorse such a  policy in the face of the announcement  by the Grand Trunk.  The truth is that railway companies  are getting down to business. Instead  of making a side issue of railways and  the securing of land grants and cash  subsidies their main object, they have  decided that the transportation business is sufficiently important to demand their full attention. If the  people of-B.'C. will only stiffen up  their back bones and stand pat, a gainst  the alienation of the public, domain  and the plundering of the provincial  treasury they can get all the railwa s  they want without money and without  price.  <>oooooooooooooooooooooooooaoooooooooooooooooo��6oo6o<H>  ���oooooooooooooooooooooooooo��h>oooooooooooooooo<  *     N  ���  Established 1836.

Per Ykar -. $ 2 ����  Six Months       l ~5  To Foreign Countriks '. 2 SO  FRIDAY   NOVEMBER 28 190:.  THE NEW GOVERNMENT.  While it may be admitted that Col.  Prior has organized a  government as  stable and as competent as any which  could   be   selected   from   the   present  legislature, his government cannot  in  any way be considered a satisfactory  on !.   The trouble is that  Baitish  Columbia   politicians   make   expediency  their watchword and  are always prepared to abandon principle  for oflice.  A glaring exampleof this is to be found  in the course of Dennis  Murphy M. P.  P., who has accepted  the position  of  provincial   secretary   in   Col.   Prior's  cabinet.    Mr. Murphy was one of the  strongest opponentsof the policy which  the government adopted to secure Col.  Prior'a   election in   Victoria.    On  the  platform.on the floor of the legislature,  he used all hi s .Irish   wit   and   native  ingenuity to find terms strong enough  to characterize a  government  which  abandoned  all   its  pr'nciples and   its  pelicy of no land grants to railways in  order to bribe the electors os the city of  Victoria.    He denounced in the strongest possible terms the intention of the  government   to  give  away  enormous  areas, of public lands in order that Col,  Prior* could win Victoria and  save the  government.   The first announcement  Col. Prior made after being sworn  in  aa premier is that the policy adopted  by the government at the  time of his  election is to be vigorously c.* rried out.  To enable. *<> earrv  "ut  this   policy he  has  c::,..-,er.   ..*�����  u.-:   ���>"���    ��� **>  ���.���-���lie*igues  Dennis Murphy M. P. P. of Ashcroft.  Mr. Murphy cannot be blamed much,  for his action. It is not so much the  fault of the man as the system. In a  legisloture where it is apparently impossible to divide the members into two  distinct parties, and equally impossible  to unite those who are not ready to  abandon everything for oflice, i nereis  neither encouragement nor hope for  the member who believes that principle  should stand for som.thing in a British Columbia legislature. Col. Prior  possesses some political shrewdness  acquired by long training and he  should-huve- no -difficulty in' keeping  control of the house during the next  two years. One recalcitrant can be  appeased with an office, .another  with a large appropriation and a third  with a little social attention. A leader  possessed of some tact and little prin-  ���iple should have no difficulty in securing and maintaining a majority in the  present 'egislature.  Mr. Debs !

The Grand Trunk is practically the  oldest railway in Canada. As.early as  1852 it began construction in the province of Ontario. Its Hue ran from  Portland, Maine, through Ontario and  Quebec and on to Chicago. For years  the management with its head office iu  London, England, was conservative,  even non-progressive. While it secured connections with other large centrea  it never attempted to extend its system on a large scale. New men have  taken charge of the aftiairs of the com.  pany and they have announced that  the Grand Trunk will be extended to  the Pacific coast. The road will be  continued from North Bay to Winnipeg, north of C. P. R. line and westward, the extension will follow the  original C. P. R. survey coming into  B. C. through the Yellowhead pass and  finding a Pacific terminus at Bute Inlet or. Fort Simpson. No application  will be made to either, federal or provincial governments for subsidies.  Last session the government of  British Columbia were determined to  gran I a subsidy for a Coast-Ko-5'einy  railway in   the  face of a definite an-  GREENWOOD AND MIDWAY, B.

Fisher returned on Saturday from  Edmonton and other Northwest points.  He reports that the prospects there are  bright. Settlers are pouring into the  country and the old timers are prosperous. Mr. Fisher decided to start a  large brewing and malting establishment at Edmonton. While there he  purchased the old electric light station  s-jite from the municipality and several  adjoining lots from private persons.  These give an excellent* site near the  river for the brewing. Mr. Fisher has  two experienced brewers associated  with him in the enterprise. He leaves  ma short'time accompanied by Mrs.  Fisher and Miss Fisher. They were  among the first residents of Greenwood  and their.departure from the city will  *ie generally regretted.  William E. Medill manager of the  Snowllake Lime Company died at his  residence in Anaconda on Saturday  last after a brief illness. Early last  week Mr. Medill was about as usual.  A decayed tooth began to ulcerate and  the abscess expanded down the neck  making breathing difficult. Three  physicians were called in and they decided an operation was necessary.  The operation was performed and the  pus removed but the shock and sub ���  sequent complications proved fata];  death came Saturday afternoon. The  funeral took place on Monday afternoon from the family residence. The  services at the house and grave were  conducted by Rev. Mr. Thomson of  Midway. The pall bearers were  Messrs. Archibald, Russeil, Sorenson,  Dynes, Monroe and Peterson. Mr.  Medill came to Greenwood about six  years ago from Naniamo B. C. He  was a plasterer and stonemason and  had many contracts in the buildi ig-line  in the city. Besides the bereaved  widow, he leaves a family, two sons  and two daughters.
