 <���  0  4-  Vol. 10  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 1902.  No. 21.  Does  Railway Comdlaatioa Intresso   Rates.  What Tbe People TMak or Cott&olldaHon,  Hill Arrears to Hay�� Th�� Best cf It.  The patties moat actively moving*  Against the merging- of tile Great  Northern and Northern Pacific ra.ll*  way inteseats in the states ofthe union  lying along and south- oi the International Boundary line, mil .not find  much comfort ia the ' results of the  examinations of important 'witnesses  before the recent meetings oi the intercalate Commerce Commission, _  The trend of opinion of tbe best iinformed, railway men proved to be  favorable to combination, not from a  railway, but a people's point of view.  They claimed that the -reduction of  rates secured by competition, waa temporary. ,  The conclusion of Mr. Hn.rriraan',s  testimony was significant, Said he,  "If Mr. Hill or myseLf owned all the  roads the people would get better ratea  ' because of conditions.. With a freer  hand we could better regulate rates to  any point."  It will be - remembered -that Mr.  Harrison was Mr. Hill's chief ���ppon-  ent in the struggle for the Burlington  and Northern Pacific* control.  Mr. Mellen.president of the North-  erh Pacific, said that under the present  arrangement his road waa just as independent in management as before  and that there were no agreements  between the Northern Pacific, Great  Northern, Union Pacific or Canadian  Pacific as to allotment of traffic and  on differentials.  The reflection that naturally comes  to the non-railway mindLjs that possibly this ^evidence may be unwittingly  biasedfrom the very "profe-iiional-life  of ,the men concerned. - Opposed\to  that on the other hand is --tlie reported  fact that petitions from railway users,  and not railway owners, from all over  the state most interested, Minnesota,  are coming in to Governor Van San  asking that the fight, against ihe  merger be dropped.  The grainmea, lumbermen, shippers  and merchants of Minneapolis have  joined in petition to the effect that  they believe that stability oi rates can  beat be had through consolidation, and  that the smaller shippers, throughout  -the state as -well as the larjpsr. ones, in  the centres .will realise cheaper and  more stable rates than before.  The belief among many others than  railway men- is that competition so  cal!ed     between railways      does  notcompet. All the same the people  will accept the multiplication of roads  with equanin ity and take chances.  Hockey,  r The return hockey matchPhoenis vs  Greenwood takes place at Phoenir tomorrow evening! The Greenwood  boys are promising their icimer victors  a lively struggle if they win. this time.  Literal Victory,  The by-election in Vtcto-rfa Tuesday  last reulted in a victory for George  Riley the liberal candidate, with a  "majority of 451 over Prank. S. Barnard  the conservative nomiiee.  Cltsf Council.  The city council met in regular session Monday evening, Present : Aldermen Smailes, Caulfield, Kirkwood and  Bannerman with Aid. Sullivan in the  chair.  In additionto tegular routine work  of which there vrasconsiderable, several  matters of a special nature engaged  the attention of the city solons.  Alderman Kbss was granted a three  months leave of absence, personal  interests at the coast demanding his  attention there.  The waterworks committee reported  the loan of a complete set of hydraut  repairs to the Pho enix city corporation.  A graut of -$L5 per month, was'on  recommendation..: of the finance committee given to the Greenwood free  reading room.  The attention of* the health officer  was directed "to the alleged nuisance  found in the cesspool of the Jakes  hospital.  The leasing ofthe ranch property of  the cemetery premises was entrusted  to the cemetery committee with full  power to act.  The council appeared to realize the  fact that Greenwood has more dogs,  many of thein ownerless things, than  appertains to a well-kept citv iu hard  times, and took steps to cu t down the  allowance, by providing, for punishment nith the cost of dest uction of  the dogs, all those who harbor dogs for  which they claim to be not responsible.

"Father Pat"   H*s Entered, into Rest.  His Monument tbe Hssrts of the People  After an arduous life spent largely  in the interest of his fellovvmen, the  Rev. W. H. Irwin widely known  throughout British Columbia as  ' 'Father Pat'' has found rest. With a  large area of this province; the Boundary country will join in general regret  at the death of this strange, restless  brave, good man. Wide was his parish,  wide his work, The needs* of human  kind was his great incentive and to  serve them his" greatest aim.  Neither bodily comfort nor -worldly  emolument counted with him.  Neither length of journey nor demand for exertion were taken into  account in his efforts to relieve suffering or distress. Welcome everywhere,  he was equally at home in the log cabin  of the prospector, the humble home of  the pioneer, or the better dwelling  places of the comfortable.  His sympathies were' broad, his devotions deep, his sense of duty untiring. His habits were simple, and his  selfish expenditures limited, while his  reserve was ever open to the call of the  sick and needy.  - -With education and nature that fitted  him for broader fields he. was "content  to live in narrow groves that he might  more readily minister to those that  others forgot. A splendid type of man  has gone to his reward and his monument rests firm on the affections of- a  people scattered from the foothills of  the Rockies to the Fmtii.  He came to everyJ matv as an equal  and entering, into their trials and  privations, with the-heart of a child  and-the-charity^Tf a.christian, wrought  much good but ever in the-most unostentatious way.     ' - -  Rot that he never sought ��� on earth  has come to him at last. And many  are the brave heart* in' the Boundary  country that mourn.      _    ..'."'

A COOL TWENTY MILLION-  The Canadian Pacific railway  has added twenty million to its  stock, to be sold at not less than  par, for general improvements  along the line from ocean to  ocean.  The greatest feature will be  the erection of great railway  works at Montreal to employ 7000  men.  The country generally will  feel the quickening of this large  expenditure so generally distributed.  I  I)  LOCAL NEWS.

A- L. White, 2nd  Hand Store.  " The meeting of the Greenwood  Literary Society in the Presbyterian  church on Wednesday evening last was  fairly well attended. The features of  the evening . were a . song* by Miss  Minkler, and an address on hypnotic  suggestion by Mr. Lukov. An interesting discussion followed the latter.  A quartette of people whose coming  it is believed argues well for Greenwood aud vicinity, arrived in the city  Wednesday and registered at the Armstrong, The party consisted of J. N.  Greenshields and A. Munroe of Montreal, H. C. Bellinger of Butte and B,  J. Wilson of Greenwood. We trust to  to be able to speak more fully of their  visit and its import later.  The carnival at Phoenix last evening was graced with six couples from  Greenwood. The ladies were of the  male sec aud presented a charming-  appearance. In fact a finer bunch of  beauties could not well be found. The  dressmakers employed on the creation  of their outfits declare them as strictly  up-to-date. The woman of the new  century has arrived.  The "Mainlandcr" steamer which  plies between Vancouver, B. C. and  Seattle, Wash., piled up on Sinclair  Island on her passage south, during  the storm of \Frlday night last. No  inconvenience was experienced by the  passengers who were transferred to the  relieving steamer State of Washing  ton- The company expect to rescue  the steamer with serious loss.  In the death of Geo. P. Wells, the  Boundary, loses one of the old timers.  Mr. Wells lived on a ranch near Mid  way and was frozen to death within a  mile of his cabin, on Friday evening-  last. Wells had been to Greenwood on  Friday, returning homeward in the  afternoon. On the way down, he stopped at Tommy Wake's hotel at Boundary Falls it is said, to warm himself as  the day was very cold. He remained  here until after dark it is believed.  The last seen of htm alive was when  he dismounted his horse, where the  trail leaves the main road, evidently  with the intention of walking home.  The subsequent events can be only  conjectured. His body was found a  short distance farther along the trail,  on Sunday. No inquest was consider***;  ed necessary.

Cariboo McKinney stock is climbing  up these days having doubled in value  the laat few weeks. The ��tock of this  phenomenal old dividend payea, at the  present rate of travel will soon be back  where it belong-s.  Messrs. Kerr and Dale owners of the  butcher Iloy property at Carmi camp,  on the West Fork were in town this  week, They reported great scarcity  of snow up the river making freighting of ore practically impossible.  Development progresses oatisfactorily  on their property and their values are  encouraging.  Work is being resumed on the Jewel  in Long Lake camp. Properly administrated the Jewel promises to be one  of the paying mines of the Boundary.  Reports of very rich ore and lots of  it are coming from the^No. 7 mine.  Manager Keffer is happy and sees th e  prospects of adding another great  mine to the string and. another factor  in the development of Greenwood and  Anaconda. Such men and such properties are the guarantees of any town  Under the efficient management of  Harry Johns, the Sunset property haa  reached the stage where, something has  got to be done. The ore ia so plentiftt 1  and accumulating at such a rate that  the-company must either provide a  smelter, or a big hole into which three  hundred tons -oi ore may be dally  dumped, or call off the force. The outlook is that the smelter exit out of the  difficulty will tie imtaediatly. chosen.  TheBoundary CreekM. & M., Co.,  had a meeting* at the Pioneer Hotel on  Monday last, to consider the recent  offer made by an English syndicate  looking* to the earLy and systematic  exploiting of this property. The meeting ratified the preliminaries of the  transfer and the prospect looks promising for the , future of the property  named. The people of Greenwood will  rejoice in the completion ofthe programme not alone an account of the'  good that will ensure to Greenwood  by the workinp of a property adjacent  tothe city-limits,-but-because of the  success it means for the promoters of  the property. -^.

The pig-lead market is improving  while copper ta holding its own.  J. Roderick Robertson.  We regret the painful duty to record  the sudden death oi J. Roderick Robertson, general manager in Canada of  the "London and British Columbia  Gold Fields company". The sad event  occurred iu New York on Monday last  and was the result of a heavy explosion of dynamite which shattered the  murray Hill hotel in which Mr. Robertson, was living at the time. The exact  cause of the accident is not as yet  located but the moat plausible is that  a candle ignited some paper and set  fire to a store of dynamite being- used  on tunnel work for the street raiWay  and in the viciaitv oi the hotel.  Mr. Robertson was easily one of the  foremost citi&ens oi the interior of  B.C., and his death is a sad bereav-  ment ior the Kootenays. Greenwood  shares with Nelson, his home city, in  the great loss and mourns with the  widow bereaved.

The splendid showing* that this  "neck-of-the-woods" made last year in  the matter of ore production otifjht to  ��pen thie.eyes of. genuine mining men,  if not of /investors, generally, on * the  one hand and of outlaw makers on the  other. -* \Now that this bit of mountains  which constitute thefBoundary country  has demonstrated what, it can do in its  ��a.rly... stages and on a heavy ^up-hill  yrade, Bomeof the knowing:and.critical*  may become < converts to-what must  inevitably prove a crowning :future.  The complaint is made'by the investor  - . tha.t the ores are low-grade, and *. they  are, and -that the government taxes  are highland they appear* to'*be. But  the great bodies of the former and the  advantages ... procured.,:, by the, .-latter  compensate i .for the apparent ^ disadvantages, 'Nowhere else* are. such  ���deposits of such easily * worked ore  found, and nowhere else that we are  JamiliaT with.do the.prospector -and,  miner get as much in the line of .trails  and roads. Taxes cannot be.measured  merely by rate per cent. The true  measure is the returns received. We  do not,' think,;that any,-, state: in the  American republic can show evidences  ^-Pli^clvmterest.*��?tthe miner, as^shovyn  by assistance to'bring his property  ���within reach of the investor, as obtain  here.. ' Of * course it is easy and  almost' pleasant work criticizing the  government of any country, and very  frequently it deserves it.  The burden of taxation whatever it  may be is added*to by frequent change  and vacillation in policy. Stable conditions are demanded in mining  as in  .'   **:���..:     -v.* -   v        -    * .  all things else,.and the investor wants  to know that the first shortage in  government income id not going to be  blindly thrown at the mining-industry.  Expenditures must be met and that  nieanB that income must be had, and  forest and field and mine must each  contribute proportionately. A large  province and a sparse population with  infant industries, render the task of  measuring    income    against    outlay  difficult.  Discernment in appropriation, discernment in outlay is the apparent  weak spot in, provincial government.  .Added thereto is lack of knowledge of  actual requirements. They who dwell  down on the coast, and lead their lives  of measured -beat and easy ; gait,; so  frequently -know little of the great  wants of this vast interior. Mt. Sicker  sneans more than all these ranges.  One t*f Roi is worth half the farms in  the valley of the middle Fraser, while  the hills of Deadwood camp will "presently yield more than all the lower  Eraser, arid yet the representative of  100 people in the Delta or on the Island  equals or outweighs him who xepre-.  tents thousands in the hills. Of course  the old school will ultimately die off,  and if the new ones can meantime be  saved from fogyisni, redemption will  ultimately come.  This fact must however remain  above all patent, the resources of this  province are inadequate to its needs  and-no administration can make the  present income suffice. Whence niust  help come ? Evidently from the  Dominion government. British Col  umbia has been a. victim not alone of  puerile government but it is a victim  of the very terms of confederation.  The. terms must be bettered before  even the most efficient government can  place things on a basis of permanent  rest. *  ^HOMESICK,  ' The American people have discovered  through authoritative sources that  homesickness is marring, if not breaking,' the' spirits of their troops in the  Philippines, The remedy proposed is  both simple and natural*���sending them  news from home, Arrangements are  being made by the government . to  send them home news, by extending  the'Manilla cable service and giving  the hoys at the front "home news"  bulletins without cost. Many facetious  comments .ale'; being made anent the  proposition by the arm-chair critics at  home, but although this apparently  trivial matter ma.y"n'ot lighten active  service effort, it will doubtless relieve  the'tedium of garrison duty, the depression of the barrack-room, au? the  melancholy of the hospital.  , One has only to*-s$��e nd a day or two  in the mountains of British Columbii  along* the line of the Canadian Pacific  railway, away from the daily newspaper, and. note his interest in the  excellent, news bulletins that road  posts at the hotels and in the cars Io  realize, that such a system would be  gladly^hailed_abyT_the soldier boys so  far !from home. It is no imputation  against the bravery, pf the troops either  in the Philippines or Africa that a.  daily remembrance from the old home  would help to keep theih in good cheer.  DIED.

Smitth Curtis, according  to reports in the Montreal papers, has  lieen giving the east some very suggestive talk. In the Montreal Gazette  oi 22nd inst. there is over a column  interview with him, in which he exposes most effectively the contention of  the east that enormous sums of money  lia.\re ticen lost in mining* in British  Columbia. Mr. Curtis shows that for  most part the losses are imaginary,and  further that most of the loss actually  made has been in stock speculation  and not in mining*. A sample of his  argument is here quoted :  "The people in the east have confused mining* with share speculation.  The newspapers, instead of showing  discrimination in criticism, have exaggerated the losses in share speculation,  and at the same time attributed, them  to mining. One of your leading citizens the other day quoted an article  appearing in a citv paper here last  spring, and asserted the losses of  Montreal people to be S25,000,000 in the  mining craze. This is a popular delusion- v  "The journal in question arrived'at  the conclusion that over 530,000,000 had  been lost in the share buying of ���; some  twenty-two mining companies, mostly  British Columbian, by taking, therdif-  ferencebetween the highest and lowest  price at which the various shares had  been quoted; for instance, the 1,750,000  shares of War Eagle were credited with  the loss of the'difference between $3.88  the highest market price, and 14c, the  lowest (then) price, or a total loss of  86,54-5,000.  "Let me tell you how wrong this conclusion is. Gooderham and Blackstock,  the promoters, have always kept a  majority, Qpropably 1,000,000, of the  shares; not at S3.88 a share, but' at  prices ranging from 60c up. The number of shares vactuair>- sold at $3.88 probably never exceeded 5,000. There has'  been no real loss to Gooderham and  Blackstock on the shares they have  kept, a&,: doubtless, the shares they did  sell to the public recouped them for any  money advanced; The average'; loss  per share to th. public does not exceed  S2.00 per share on the 750,000 shares, or  a total loss $1,500,000, and I venture.to  say that not one-third of thatloss has  been borne by Montreal people. Sol  could go on through the whole list. ^  *���'#���.#��������  "Take one section , of pur mining  area���I mean the Boundary country.  Work, was begrin there on a small scale  in 1897, if got railway facilities only  twenty-months ago.1 The total amount  of capital to date, over and "above the  proceeds ofr ore: sales, ;paid out ;f or. the  prospectB, for their development and  for smelters, does notexceed $1,500,000;  yet the fair market price which can be  ���now obtained for the mining properties  developed in the Boundary is, at least,  515,000,000."
