 '1/  ft*  /���������/  a  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY. JANUARY 30, ,1^03,  No. 23  . \\ v  The V. V. & E. Will bnild at an Early Date From Curlew  to Greenwood���Chief Engineer Kennedy Was Here.  Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway Bobs up Again.  The Victoria, Vancouver & Eas.ern  Railway and Navigation company ha:s  decided to do things iu the Boundary.  The road will, be* continued from  Curler to Greenwood ' making Greenwood the terminus for some time.  The branch to Phoenix will be built  up the Fourth of July Creek route.  Both those undertakings will be commenced at an early date.  The authority for the statement is  Jas. H. Kennedy, chief engineer for  the company. He was in Greenwood  on Saturday last accompanied by C. A.  Des Btieay of Spokane the company's  right of way agent. They came down  from Phoenix where they were looking  into right of way matters and left by  the afternoon train for Grand Porks.  Under the present arrangements the  the Phoenix branch will start from a  poiat above Grand Forks,��will follow  Fourth of July creek for a considerable  distance and then take a detour toward  the North Fork to seenre the proper  grade. The'road will then come into  Summit camp and the Boundary Creek  watershed and will follow the eastern  slope of Boundary Creek until Phoenix  is reached. The, Greenwood branch  from Curlew will have an even grade  almost the entire distance. It will  cross the international boundary at  Midway where arrangements are being  made for station grounds on Norris  & Megraw's addition and will follow  tne Boundary Creek Valley to this  city.  But why should Greenwood be made  the terminus? With two smelters  here rapidly increasing their furuaces  and "with arrangements being. mado  for the erections of others, why should  the astute J. J. Hill leave a portion of  the Boundary Creek district untapped?  It is possible'that he is not going to  provide railway communication between Phoenix and Greenwood ?  The answer is another story.

Mr. Hill will build  th>; rui-w.iy t> Greenwood and Mr  Grave* w.li build a well equipped  standard yuage tramway between  Greenwood and Phoenix. The railway  and the tramway will work together  and for each other. If Mr. Graves  runs short of money for the enterprise  he can call on Mr. Mill to help him out.  Under the arrangements everybody  should be happy. Greenwooi will get  a competitive railway and a tramway  ,i much shorter road   to Phoenix   than  Im'.il be possible if un ordinary railway was constructed, and ores can be  hauled clown here at much less cost.  There are are also amalgamations,  consolidations and preparations for  other smelters in the air but the above  is enough good news for one week.  Stipendiary Magistrate  Col. Prior promised that the matter  would be attend to and the gazetting  of the appointment is the result. Mr.  McMynn has been a long time in the  public service. He has been a resident in the Boundary for nearly 18 years  He reached the Pacific coast from  England in 1884 and the following  year took up a pre-emption at Myers  Creek, within a couple of miles of the  well known Rock Creek placer camp.  At that time, there were no towns in  the Boundary, Rock Creek, Eholt's  farm (now Midway) and Grand Prairie  (now Grand Forks) being the. points  the few travellers   usually  made   for  Citizen's League.  Association Formed to Promote  City's interests-  Last Friday evening 22 business  men were present at the office of T. M.  Gulley for the purpose of.organizing a  business men's association. At a p.re-  liminary meeting held, previously, it  was decided to organize such, ,an association. J. E. ,Spahkie,.M. D , was  appointed provisional president, W.  M. Law, vice-president and Fred M.  Elkius, secretary. At Friday's'meeting it. was decided .' to complete the  organization under the name* of The  Citizen's League. J. J. CaulfieldVyras'  appointed second' vice-president .'and  Julius Ehrlibh, J R.

In March  of 1893 he opened a mining recorder's  office at Rock Creek. In May of 1895  the government office was removed to  the then newly established town of  Midway, where later he was made  chief provincial constable for the  Boundary.

McMynn  Has  Been Gazetted-  The last issue of the British Columbia Gazette contains notice nf appointment of William Graham McMynn as a stioendiary magistrate for  ���.he counlies of Yale and Kootenay.  When Col. Prior visited Greenwood  last fall, the Board of Trade in an address to him urged that such an ap  pointment should be made and that  ���Mr. McMynn be given authority to  hold small debts' court in Greenwood.  Duncan Smith of Smith Bros, was  over from Grand Forks this week.  Work on the construction of the Greenwood court house will be resumed in  March. In the meantime the firm is  securing the material necessary for the  structure.  .-;Last<month. Phil.J McDonald;, and  Jas^ Sutherland took hold of the Elkhorn ; mineral claim, ow.ned by C. L.

Regarding the Snowshoe smelter  WHEN .OUGHT  WE TO  GO;TO A'DENTIST?  Many think .it unnecessary  to devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected by 'damaged, decayed or broken teeth. Others  give the teeth no attention  till pain compels them.  The stupidity and shortsightedness of either policy ��� is  evident.  Everyone who thinks a  m'omfent on the subject knows  that J'ood cannot he masticated  satisfactorily if one or more teeth  are tender, inflamed, decayed, or  othervise out of working- order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

Should they suddenly discover a  much greater body of ore in their mine|  they might not of course require mucb  of ours; hence the'deairability of work- j  ing foirwaW to having a smelter of our  own. Therefore, during our stay in  the country, we yiaited four smeltera  with a view of aeeing all the methods  and details of management, and what  it might be best for us to do in the  future, and we also visited three smelter sitea with a view to future possibilities, and I can aaaure you we have  Boods, Stationery and Office  ies, Etc. .;   :  ooooooooooooooooooooooOOOO  THE SNOWSHOE COMPANY  Th�� annual report of the Snowshoe  Gold & Copper Mine* Ltd. from tha  press of Waterlow A Sonal^ondon baa.  jaat tWen received. After the usual  paMitKlatic utterances of directora of  EsgUab cora^aalea the report aalraa  made ourselves fully cognisant of the  details and costs of smelters. On account of ��� the s��lf fluxiug properties of  the Snowshoe ore, it can be nmelted  very cheaply, and, ati it does not require roasting, the metal contents can  be extracted in from 24 to 48 hours."  The Earl of Chesterfield was also  good enough to refrain from placing  the blame on this much libelled province for all the ills that attend the  mining industry. He placed the blame  where it belonged. In this connection  he said:  "In conclusion I have one more word  to say and that is with regard to the  position of mining in British Columbia  generally. I am perfectly aware it is a  matter of common noteriety that owing  to circumstance* which occurred within the laat year or two i n connection  with certain compan ies owning mines  in that country and details of which it  la not necessary for uie to' enter, the  confidence of the liritish investor in  British Columbia aiiue��, bas in a great  measure, been ahakcu, and I am not  surprised. To restore that confidence,  as far aa lies in their power is, and  will be the aim and object of your  board."  Taking it all la all, the report of tho  Snowahoe company is decidedly encouraging and refreshing after tho  miserable jeremiads that have been  wafted across the ocean. The Snow-  shoe company has a splendid mine and  what seldom happens a promising mining property ia being esploited by men  of the right stamp.

While it Is to be regrettPd Unit more  united interest I is not taken by tlir-. cit-  iz'eus of Greenwood in tlie Board of  Trade or aii.v other organization that  has .for its object th��. upbuilding of the  town, other cities art*, suffering from  the same state of affairs. In more than  one town in the province, the citizens  have fathered for the purpose of discussing* ways and means to promote  thi interests of their respective cities.  It ia a rather remarkable coincidence  that in the city of Victoria, a number  of business men discussed the organization of a league similar to that suggested in Greenwood and were met by  a similar argument, in reference to the  Board of Trade. The Victoria Colonist  in discussing the matter fairly des-  scribes the position of the board of  trade and the others who have a common object iu view but do not belong  to the board of trade. ��The article  applies with'equal force to Greenwood  and is given below.  Two nights ago a number of business  men of Victoria met together  to  con-  aider ths advisability of assisting   the  business interests of the citv   by  combination and joint  effort.    The  meeting-was enthusiastic and numerously  Attended.   The discussion was free and  open and of a decidedly practical character.   At the same moment the Board  of Trade is lamenting the falling away  in iis membership, its influence and its  finances.   It is evident therefore that  theBoard of Trade does not represent  those merchants who are  anxious for  an organization to advance their interests'   Is   there   any   reason    why    it  should not do so?   Is there any  reason  why there should be two organizations  having practically the same ends,   but  composed of different people?   Is there  not sufficient division of effort in  Victoria already in matters affecting the  interests of the city, without adding to  it?   It would seem to be only  common  sense that this  proposed  Chamber of  Commerce   and  the  Board   of   Trade  should   amalgamate.    But   of    course  ���verything*depends upon the terms  of  amalgamation.    To make it  fair,   and  to produce an   effective  org-anizatiau,  The Board of Trade should reduce  its  entrance fee, every official of the Board  of Trade should hand  in  his  resignation, and a general meeting of the  reconstituted and enlarged Board should  beheld to elect  its  executive officers  and   committees.    We   do not   for    a  moment hint that  the  officials of  tue  Board are incompetent  or ineffective.  But they ought to have a mandate from  the enlarged Board if they ar��: lo properly represent it in its broadened form.  By the absorption  of new   blood   the  Board of Trade would be greatly streng,  thened and improved in utility.    By incorporating with the established organization, the uew movement taking place  would   accomplish    more.   This   idea  may not appeal either to the  Board of  Trade or to the promoters of   the  new  organization, but it appeals to us.  and  we believe to the people of Victoria, as  containing a certain germ of  common  ense.  Board of Trade  Regular Monthly Meeting Held on  Thursday  A well attended meeting of the-Beard  of Trade was held on Thursday afternoon with PresidenLGeo.'R. Naden in  the chair. The first matter considered  was a leiter from Smith Curtis M, P. P.  member for the district iu which he  asked the cooperation of the board in  preparing the list of requirements for  Greenwood and vicinity.. A- similar  request having been received, by the  city, council, a .committee comprising:  Aid. McKenzie, Kirkwood and Bunting  were present to confer with the Board  on the matter. After some discussion  Julius Ehrlich. D. 6. McRae aiid"Robert Wood were appointed a committee  to join the committee from the' council  in preparing a list of  requirements.  The secretary was.instructed to.write*  the government  requesting  that  stip  endiary magistorate McMynn have authority to hold a s mall debts "court in  Greenwood. -,.,.-,  The question of securing* increased  membership and increased interest in  the board was discussed at length and  and acommittee comprising* Messrs.  Galloway, Mytton and Ross was appointed to discuss the matter with the  Citizens League and report back to the  Board.    The calling of a public m"eetiiiijr*'-tb  elect delegates to the rProvincial Mining Association ��vas left .ta- raining  men to take initial action.  The  subject of  Dr.   MacR'ae's  dis  course on   Sabbath evening   will   b#"  "Why is the Bible not in our schools.*  There  was   a   large* crowd   at   the  second  carnival. held v"'at ���'.. the skating  ink on*Thursday;*evening-under the  management of' ��� the * Citizens" Band.'

The entertainment and dance, given  at   th*:   Mother   Lode   last    Tuesday  night under the auspices of  the mine  employes waa   a pronounced success.  This was just what waa expected,  for  not only were the preliminary arrangements thorough and complete',  but the  object  waa  a deserving one, viz., for  the benefit of H.   D. McMullan, who  whilst   employed   at   the    mine   last  September   injured  his  knee so badly  that he had ever since been  incapacitated so far as work was concerned,  '* The attendance was large, numbering about  300   and   including    many  visitors from*  Greenwood, Anaconda,  Deadwood and the Sunset mine, whilst  Eholt,    Phoenix,   MiUw'ay   and   even  Chesaw also sent representatives.   The  committee were able to arrange a good  programme of instaumental and vocal  music,   thanks  largely   to  the  kiudly  and gratuitous assistance of the Greenwood   orchestra    and    singers    from  Greenwood and the Sunset and Mother  Lode minis.    The large dining hall at  the mine was prettily decorated  with  flags and  other colored  drapery  and  greenery.    At eight o'clock the chair  was taken by Frederic Keffer.  general  manager for the B. C. Copper Co.  anO  the   following   programme was   then  rendered, and enthusiastically receiv  1.

Police  and   License   Commissioners  Were Recommended.  In the absence of acting- mayor Bannerman, Aid. Ross was voted to the  chair at the regular meeting* of the  coumiil on Monday evening and Aid.  Kirkwood, -Buntiag, McKenzie and  Gulley were present. The report of  tlie medical officer of health was received and referred to the incoming*  council and that portion dealing with  the septic tank at the new school was  sent to the Board of School trustees.  The committee to whom was referred  - the resignation of mayor-elect Smailes  reported that they had seen the agreement and recommended that the resig-,  nation  be  accept.d.    The report  was  ' accepted ; the office of mayor declared  vacant; Mom'ay next was fixed for  nomination day, Thursday for election  and G. li. Taylor returning officer.  ��� In this 'connection the report in the  Boundary Creek Times of the previous  meeting of the council unintentionally  might have done Aid. Bunting, Gulley  and McKenzie an injustice. Aid.  Bunting stated that as the council  must have a yalid reason for accepting  a resignation, he was not in favor of  nccepting mayor-elect   Smailes'  resig-  "ifatio^uitiTft^^^  He was not opposed to accepting the  resignation but thought the council  should have time to see the agreement  before doing anything. Aid. Gulley  and McKenzie agreed with Aid. Bunting that it would probably be better to  defer action   for m"  week.    This ex-  , planation i.s made >u jiiaiiee to the two  alderman as some criticism wss directed against them because it was inferred that they were opposed to accepting  the resignation at anytime.  A committee of the council composing Aid. McKenzie, Bunting and  Gulley were appointed to  confer  with  S. BARRY YUILL  PRACTICAL       WATCHMAKJ2K       AND  JEWELLER.

It is said that if there were twenty-  five months in the year, the good  people of Sandon would not be a single  month without ice. The Sandon  hockey team bear strong testimony  tliat the assertion is correct. Every  member of the team is "greased lightning" when he gets a.pair of skates ou  and a hockey stick in his hand. Even  a staid Methodist parson from the cent  belt after a year in Sandon is now like  an ordinary Sandonite. He is not at  home unless he has skates on. The  Sandon team met the Greenwood  players on Saturday evening and  Sandon's* defence and goal keeper almost perished with the cold. There  was but little for Hem to do. No  sooner was the puck in play than one  of those little Sandon men had it and  the next'moment, it was between the  Hags. Tlie score was about ten to one.  R. H. Carley. a commercial uiau of  Nelson, made an acceptable referee.  After the senior match the Greenwood and Phoenix juniors furnished  plenty of entertainment for the spectators. They played the game for all  that was in it and there was plenty of  heayy_ checking and several_mlixjtps._  The Greenwood boys were the stronger  team   and   won  with  several  goals to  THE NEW  u  Remodelled, Renovated and Refurnished. .

His fame as atior.tui n i i<i- ���  ceded hitn and the Auditorium w.i.-  fillecl with Socialists and others who  were there to enjoy eloquence such as  Eugene V. Debbs' entertained, them  with. Debs warmed the'cockles of.the  hearts of those,\yhowe're not socialists.  Father-Haggerty wasfepntent to give  what-Mr.*Tvukov^vbuldcall the philosophy of socialism. Sjern facts are al)  rightbut flWery oratory go^s better in  a cold hall with tlie thermoinete: struggling to"keep above the freezing point.  But FatherHagi;erty is a .socialist:esr  pert.

Ht*;  considered it a simple matter tov so ar-r  range matters that men' arid women  could have not a mere existence, but  the value'of life's work";they'': put'jn  what* they produce but he"'cbuld not  shake off the cold he" got'-'at Phoenix  the night previous. His listeners were  'impressed'-with the fact that he was  manfully.endeavoring,to fulfil] a dul:y  h'ebwed to-histaudierice; but th'e exuberance which characterized the Debbs'  lecture was-lacking.

Father Haggeity:  introduced his-siibject; with -' a timely  illustration. A young colt shies at a  railway engine because he does riot  know that the railway engine is a harmless monster who does a lot of good  work on a small amount of coal; people  .shy at Socialists because they do riot.  understand their, teachings. -He then  went on to describe what socialism is  what it airiis to do. 'La^k'df'spaWpre-  cludes a lengthy report of .his utter-!  ances. He announced that the local  spcialist;league:.will be>'; reorganized ��� at  -Miners-Uriiori"LHail~nex"rfeuhday "afternoon and that the; public were invited  to attend. He offered to . answer any  questions regarding socialismibut nom*  being asked the audience dispersed.  Father Haggerty left by Thursday  stage for Curlew and lectured in North-  port on Thursday, evening,      i  Local and Personal.  The death occured ....last?Moyday.of  George Munroe, and on Wednesday  afternoon his ,-b.ody was buried.in the  Green wbod, jcemet'ery,;Re v+p r. =Mc R a e  conducting Vthe-"btirial-'Jservic^' in the  presence of a number of friends.  Deceased was born in Scotland on  November 5, 1827, .so at the time of his  death was in Ms 76th year. He left  the land of his birth about 40 years  ago, coming to eastern Canada, whence  he went to Montana. Eventually he  drifted to the Sloean, when1 he had  several ribs broken when caught in a  snowslide. Liter he came to thf Boundary district and fur some time held as  a ranch the I.md near Grand Forks  upon which the Granby company's  smelter now stands'. ' iii 1895 fie took  up land on McCarren. creek, .along, the  old Dewdney trail, above Boundary  Falls. About a year ago he sold this  to Mark Christensoa. Since then he  has been ,'ailing with dropsy -and  Brigh'ts disease, but; the? serious 'illness  tha{ resulted in , his death ���was: very  brief. "He was unconscious when Dr.  Spankie was called in, having resolute-  ly.Tfifasfed to see a doctor whils* in his  senses. So far as known he had not a  relative on this'.continent, but as he  was tlie youngest of a family of:*bro-  then and sisters, most of whom married and remained in Scotland it is  likely that telatives of his are still  living in that country.
