From all reports they have come  for mountain air and suphur fumes.  Within the la��t two weeks a dozen of  them have dropped into town and  dropped out again, silent doubtless because seeking health. Sickness makes  some men querulous, some silent.  The Great Northern people were all  affected in the sameway. They knew  nothing or if they did they didn't want  to talk.  First came Contractor Shields but  he passed quietly on his way. Then  came Supt. Morg-an of the S. F. & N.,  accompanied  by H. A. Jackson and J.  C. Eden. Great Northern officials all,  but they were simply refugees from  the cares that pressed them elsewhere.  Then came Chief Engineer Kennedy  last Saturday but he knew nothing  but what was on the blue print and  that he kept folded close and in his  pocket.  '   Wednesday of this weeK saw Louis  D. Hill and party in the camp but they  saw few people and about all they said  was to ask a few questions. t.  And last, but not least, friend De��-  brisay, right of way man for the Great  Northern, has come and gone many  times of late but he just knows nothing  about his company's plans.  In his article liFenzied Finance" in  Everybody's Magazine for August,  Mr. Lawson speaks of the law of  silence that controls the officers and  employees of the Standard Oil concern  but if the Great Northern officials cannot give Standard->Hl^-peoplc-lessons  in mysterious silence, the latter are  first-class mutes.  We have alvvay maintained that  Greenwood and Boundary Creek had a  very fine climate, but we little dreamed  I hat its repute would reach so far, so  soon. 13ut the climate and scenery  will have their effect. And so the sick  aud tired (and they who keep you sick  and tired waiting) from Spokaue and  Seattle and St. Paul have been with us  again and again of late, but they have  gone again. Not an uninteresting  looking lot either.  CHICAGO CAPITALISTS.  Mark F. Madden, president of the  Providence Mining company, arrived  in Greenwood on Thursday's Canadian  Pacilic train. Mr. Madden is making  his regular trip into Boundary looking  after his mining interests here. He is  acconipadied by Mr. J. B Heeney and  Mr. M. S. Hyland both capitalists nf  Chic go Mr. Heeney is a stockholder  in the Providence but had never seen  the property, his investments having  been made on Mr. Madden's recommendation. Mr. Heeney is president  of the E. Baggot company, the largest  plumbing establishment on earth.  Both gentlemen are much pleased wilh  the appearance of the Providence and  the camp generally. They report a  delightful trip across country and are  enjoying the cool salubrity of Boundary creek evenings and nights. They  count the change from hot pavements  and warm nights a veritable benediction and expect to realize largely by  their rest. Although ostensibly sight  seeing theseshrewcl men are not likely  to leave Greenwood without making  further investments, but whether  visitor or investor they are heartily  welcome not only because the guests of  Mr. Madden but because of their many  pleasing personal qualities.  FATAL ACCIDENT,  A most distressing accident occurred  near Phoenix on Tuesday evening  last. Preparations had been made to  explode a large amount of powder on a  piece of rock worlc in the contract of  Burns and Jordan on the V. V. & E.  railway. The powder had failed to explode and Oscar Turnquist had been  sent to investigate. Reports differ as  to the exact conditions of the affair  but from accredited testimony it would  appear as if Turnquist dropped a long-  steel bar into the ho'e resulting in the  ignition of the powder. The breast of  the rock was blown out, and Turnquist  disembowelled and his body blown to a  distance of 400 feet. This is the flrs-t  serious accident on the work.  UNION MEAT COMPANY.  The Union Meat company is resuming business at the old stand on Copper street under the management of  Mr. J. P. Flood. Arrangements have  been completed for a permanent supply  of first class meats, fresh and dried,  and the proprietor trusts for a share of  the public patronage.  THE BOUNTY.  J. W. Nelson who has just returned  from a trip up West Fork, reports work  progressing on the Bounty and Standard with very . flattering prospects.  Tbe Bounty never looked so- well as at  present. Conditions are favi.rable for  an early deal on this high grade  claim.  If you want good home made bread  go to F. Jaynes bakery, opposite court  house.  BOUNDARY  PAY ROLL  Wages Now Being Earned  in the Boundary.  $170,000 I MONTH  Prosperous Times in Sight for the  Boundary-  The Boundary pay roll is very large  at present and yet money appears 10  be very scarce. Within a very small  strip of country cf which Greenwood,  Phoenix, Graud Forks and Midway are  the business centres a large amount of  money is being daily earned. In this  small area there are at present employed approximately: 1400 railway  workers, averaging at least 560 per  month; 100 railway operators, averaging S100 jut month; 700 mine and  smelter men averagingSlOO pnr month;  a total pay ro'l of nearly 3170,000 per  month.  A large part of t'.iis money goes into  the regular channels of trade, some is  sent abroad, and considerable is banked. Money ought to loosen up a little  iu the Boundary soon. The mines and  smelters have been paying out large  sums steadily for some time now. The  Montreal and Boston Consolidated will  within the next two or three months,  to all appearances, have a monthly  pay roll of $20,000 say, all of which  will go into the currents of trade. The  inflow of money from railway building  during the next six months added to  the steady monthly roll of mines,  smelters and railway operating, ought  to make an appreciable difference in  the mone}- in sight, and ought to offer  a gmrantee that times will be good in  the Boundary the coining autumn and  winter.  We shall so expect. With motl.er  earth yielding up thousands of dollars  daily the,money current must perceptibly grow. The evolution of course  comes slowly if steadily, but the quick  turning loose of a million more or less  for railway building in this district  cannot do otherwise than make the  money market easy while it adds to the  facilities of doing the staple business  of the country more cheaply.  HIGH GRADE  DISTRICT  The Camp Rapidly Changing its Reputation.  A   Distinction   Will   Be   Necessary  Hereafter.  It looks now as if Greenwood particularly was rapidly losing its reputation for being a low grade camp. The  Boundary is known far and wide as a  low grade district, but Greenwood  keeps butting in and knocking the old  name over. True the big ones are all  about us, the great big low grade  mines with ore enough in sight to keep  thousands of men busy for a generation. But the little ones, those of high  grade ore, keep showing up so steadily  and so persistently all about Greenwood that the repute of the camp as  "low grade" is fast being gratified.  The fact that the 750,000 tons of  quarried ore yielded and smelted in the  Boundary during 1903 averaged $5 to  the ton justifies the term "low grade".  But with this true the profits were  larger than in the Rossland and other  camps of higher grade, due to the excessively cheap cost of mining and  smelting. But these great deposits  of low grade ore which doubtless will  a] way remain the backbone of the mining industry here, cannot Unger dominate the reputation of the camp.  The high grade ones are coming in  so fast and so surely that cognizance  must hereafter be taken of them.  VVithin two years the complexion of  things has changed, happily changed.  The Providence started the music and  has kept it up, and at the 300 foot level  has better ore and more of ic than  ever.  The Elkhorn followed after and has  not repented. The E.PU. group set a  lively pace for value at the start and  has k;pt it up. The Helen and Barbara are cojUentjtojrnake records away  above the SF100 mark. The "Silver"  Cloud is crowding the S180 line if  numerous assays are to be believed.  The Bay's ledge, and it is a fine, large  one, touches the $120 mark and shows  lots of free gold. The Mavis, promises  to justify her right to be in the company of the Bay and Silver Cloud and  Skylark and is yielding S100 ore to the  bondholders.  Thus these claims promise to rapidly  change the old familiar term of "low  grade". But what a magnificent combination i.s afforded. Individuals and  small companies may operate the high  grade mines profitably, the millionaire  aggregations may increase their millions out of the low grade ones.  Big profits in one instance and big  pay rolls in the other, are thus secured  to the camp. But what about the  name? If we say "low grade" we  must qualify, if we say "high grade"  we must qualify. So we suggest the  euphonious "high-low" as being the  correct thing.  For inasmuch as these high grade  ones are closer lo the town, crowding  the corporation limits on the north,  the east and the south, than the ethers  they have the right to the first part of  the combined name���and so '"high-  low" goes.  MEAT SUPPLY.  An anonymous correspondence post  marked Vancouver, arraigning the  meat supply of the province, has been  received at this office. A correspondent whose convictions on a question  are not sufficiently strong to justify  the signature of his name cannot expect a newspaper to vary its rules and  assume a responsibility he evidently  declines to take. The Times cannot  publish a rellection of this character  without the name of the complaining  witness.  / BOUNDARY   OREEK   TIMES.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

AUGUST 5 1004  OFFICIOUS OFFICIALS  The Times hastens to congratulate Mr. J. B. McKilligin  surveyor of taxes for British Columbia upon the strenuous efforts  which he is making to earn his  official salary- Everyone will  recognize the fact, even the overburdened rancher that the new  assessment is so perfect in all its  details and the incidence of taxation is so equitably adjusted  that there is little scope for the  display of genius on the part of  the surveyor of taxes. It is not  surprising therefore that this  very active gentleman should  take up the cudgels in defense of  the much abused Canadian Pacilic Railway company and use his  official position to protect that  overtaxed institution against the  assessors of those municipalities  which have been specially legislated against by an all wise provincial government.  It would be unkind to suggest  that the municipal act provides a  remedy for alleged grievances  against the work of the assessor.  The C. P. R has just as much  right to appeal against tbe finding of the assessor as the  most humble tax payer and if the  railway company cannot get redress from a court of revision, it  can appeal to a higher court. Of  course it is much simpler to have  the surveyor of taxes butt in and  tell the assessor that "you must  do this or do that and certain assessments against the C. P. R.  must be cancelled.'" In fear and  trembling we respectfully beg to  point out to that distinguished  personage, the surveyor of taxes,  that he should   acquaint himself  with the provisions of the Municipal Clauses Act and lie would  then discover that the assessor  has no authority to cancel any  assessment. The assessment roll  was returned to the municipal  council, passed upon by a court of  revision after those taxed had  been given the statutory time to  appeal if they so desired. That  assessment was then final aud  the assessor has no authority to  mutilate it even at the suggestion  of the surveyor of taxes.  The Times has  been  laboriug  under the  misapprehension   that  the surveyor of taxes was  a  provincial officer, and that the young  and     struggling   municipalities  which  were  denied   the right to  tax railways, although that  privilege  is extended  to  the older  and larger municipalities at least  would not be subjected  to  interference from  provincial officers.  However since   Mr.   McKilligin  thinks he is in duty bound  to instruct officers of the municipality  of the City of Greenwood on the  question of C. P. R.   taxation,  it  might be just as well to add that  the C. P. R. right of way has not  been  taxed,   that the municipal  officers of the City of Greenwood  are too well acquainted  with the  provisions of   a  railway   assessment  act   which    viciously   discriminates  against   the   smaller  municipalities,   and   that  in any  .event, the C. P. E. failed to take  advantage of the right of appeal  and  cannot now  succeed  in  escaping  the small amount of taxation it is asked to pay although  backed up by a provincial  officer  who   is   more   ornamental  than  useful.  If Mr. McKilligan is anxious to  serve the public 'we would draw  h's attention to a letter written  by one John Oliver, farmer and  member of the legislature. Possibly Mr. McKilligin may have  heard of the gentlemau before,  we would direct his attention  more particularly to the following portion of Mr. Oliver's  letter;  "If you take the case of a man producing- hay or grain, or both, for  market you will find that on 160 acres  of land, which with its improveinents  is valued at 1612,000, the fanner will require at least SI,000 worth of stock and  implements. His average annual  sales, even in the good times which  we have, enjoyed for. several-yearspast  will be from two to four thousand dollars, or an average of three thousand.  His case would stand thus:  Assessment on land and improvements, $12,000; assessment on stock  and implements, SI,000; assessment on  gross value of produce, S3,000. Total  assessment, $16,000. Taxation at one  per cent, $160.  Of the S3.000 received from the sale  of products from $1,300 to SI,800 will  be required to pay for labor, wear and  tear of implements, twine, wire, sacks,  etc.  If you place his net income at Si,SOO  (a high average under the circumstances) you will find that you are taxing  him at the rate of 10.66 per cent, on  his gross output. Are you prepared  to accept the odium of   tliis   (supposed  to be legalized) robbery?  If you take the case of a man en  gaged in stock raising you will find  that even if his expenses arc smaller  than those of the man engaged in  raising hay or grains, his assessment  on account of stock is much higher and  the taxation imposed will work out in  a similar ratio.  If you take the dairy man, whilst  his gross returns will be much larger,  hi.s assessment on account of stock  will be much larger and his expenses  on account of labor so much more that  when his products are assessed he will  be no belter position than the others  mentioned.  Compare the burden sought to be  placed upon the agriculturist with  those imposed upon other classes and  you will find it substantially as follows.  A farmer taxed 5.33 per cent, on his  net income, with no deductions what,  ever.  Taxation on the income of other individual is 150 per cent., and the following deductions are allowed:  1. Amount exempt under the stat-  uto, $1,000.  2. Outgoings or necessary expenses  actually incurred and paid out in the  production of the income by the taxpayer.  3. Interest on borrowed capital,  from which borrowed capital an income is derived, if such interest is  paid to the lender, who is an actual  resident of the province, or if such  interest is paid to a company doing  business iu the province, and which  pays taxes in the province, but not  otherwise.  4. Losses and lad debts arrisi lg  out of the business from which an income is derived, irrecovertable and  actually written off .during the year,  but not otherwise.  5. For premiums of life insurance  o;i the life of the taxpayer, if paid, not  to exceed one-sixth of the annual income of to taxpayer. Received therefore to be produced to the assessor on  demand.  6. For municipal taxes and rates  paid on real property, from which an  income is derived, but not   otherwise.  7. For repairs actually expending  during the year on real property from  which an income is derived, but not  otherwise.  7. For repairs actually expending  during the year on real property from  which an income is derived but not  otherwise.  8. For all incomes derived from  shares, or dividends, from companies  or corporations are assessed and taxed  under the headings in this act of "Taxation on Mines and Minerals," and  "Taxation of Corporations"; or where  the real and personal property and income of such companies are assessed  and taxed under this act, but not  otherwise.  Or in other words, a farmer on a  grots income of i'3,000 or on a net in  come of $1,500 is required to pay $160  annually. Other classes on the same  'ain'o'utif'of iiet'incom^we"required" to  pay 87.50 annually.  "Banks on the same amount of net income are required to pay $37.50, Other  corporations on the same amount of  gross income are required to pay $30  annually.  Thus, a farmer pays over four times  as much as a bank, over 21 times as  much as a financier, lawyer or doctor,  and 5 times as much as corporations,  other than banks."  ^mmmmmwmmwmmmiimmmii^  Cr*  Cr*  <r*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  <r*  (r*  (F=*  CF*  Cr*  Cr*  S?

Victoria, B. C, 23rd July, 1904.
G. B. Tayi.ok, Esq.,
Assessor and  Collector Municipality of Greenwood.
Greenwood, B. C.
Sik: Mr. N. S. Dunlop, tax commis
sioner of the Canadian Pacific Rail-
wag company, has called my attention
to a demand made by you for taxes on
Lot 1, Block h, and Block H, map No
46, Greenwood, for the years 1901,
1902, 190s and 1904, and has requested
me to explain to you that your municipality has no legal right to assess
and tax the said property, as it is part
of the right of way of the company.
The municipality of Greenwood was
incorporated on 12th August, 1897.
The Municipal Clauses Act, Section
116, subsection "a", prohibits all
municipalities which are incorporated
after the' 21st February, 1895, from
assessing the land occupied and
claimed by a railway company as the
railroad right of wa3', or occupied for
railroad station, engine houses, freight
sheds, railroad buildings, sidings, or
any of the personalty property of the
company, including its rolling stock or
I have also to refer you to the railway Assessment Acts of the province
which contain a similar prohibition.
If you refer the question to your city
solicitor I am sure he will advise you
to cancel the assessment
I have been obliged to explain this
question fully to several municipalities, and have given them the reasons
for fixing the date 21st February, 1895,
mentioned in the acts, as well as to explain why the prohibition did not extend to all municipalities, and wny the
Crown alone had the right to tax under
the Railway Assessment Act, but I
need not trouble you with these explanations, but if your solicitor ihould
wish to have any information that I
able to give I shall be glad to supply
I  trust you  will  at once cancel the
assessmedt and notify  Mr. N. S. Dunlop,  tax   commissionei   C.  P. R. Co.,
Montreal, that you have done so.
I have the honor to be Sir,
Your obedient servant,
Surveyor of Taxes and
Inspector of Revenue.

Mr. George William Cornist has secured a bond on the Electric mineral
claim iu Long Lake camp fiom the
Vancouver and Boundary Creek Developing and Mining company and will
begin operations at once. The Electric, adjoins the Roderic Dhu on the
southeast and is presumed to be the
same lead that has run so high on its
neighbor. Assays from the Elect tic
ledge, a foot in width, are very satisfactory and Mr. Cornish believes he
has the makings of a mine.
