Array 12/  T  Vol. 10  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, APRIL 18,  L902.  No. e��r. 3%.  Mr.  Dewdney's Report  Very Encouraging.  Not  Brief Summary of His Report to The  Government-  The report of Mr. Edgar Dewdney  on the Coast Kootenay line of railway  over to the Ho pe mountain is not such  as to encourage hope that the road will  be speedily built. We subjoin pediment portions of Mr. Dewdney's report. '',  Victoria', B.C. Dec. 23,'UKM...  Hon. TV. C. Waws. '.'  Chief-"Commissioner of Liaiidsaitd  Works, Victoria. '   *  Six: Having" received instructions  on the 23rd July last frqm you to , take  charg-e of the exploratory work in the  Hope Mountains, which ' the" Goirern-  raent proposed to make' in. order to  obtain reliable information as to"the"  practicability'-br otherwise of a route  for a railway through the Cascade  range at that poiut,- I now beg-to report that "two parties /were organised  by me to carry out this work, one  . under the charge of Mr. H. Carry, C.  E., who had- a t general; supervision of  the whole of the work,' and the other  under'Mr. F. Moberly, C.E., both competent and reliable^raen. They left  for Hope on August 1st, and on the3rd  got into camp, . ���    v  No. 1.���The line coloured black from  Hope  commences at a point on the C.  P,   R. line surveyed this spring from  Abbottsford to Hope, and tans up the  Coquhalla1 27 miles,  where, it crosses  i   ' the river,'down the Coquhalla arid up  Unknown' Creek over Railroad Pass,  '    and down' Railroad  Creek   and the  $    Tulameen   to a poiii t  on the   located  ��    line of the C.P.R.  at  Allison, where  ���?    that  line-turns northerly   up' Graved���yard Creek.--The mileage of Ko. 1 line  "'    is 79.28 miles; the survey of this section, connecting as it does both east  and -westwith the CP.R., gives a continuous chainedline.frdni* Coast to the  eastern boundary of our Province, aud  , is the only one. ''."-  No.'"2.~I��in'e coloured blue, from  Hope via the Nicolum,vSumallow;;an<L  Skaist, throtig-h Cedar7 Flat Valley to.  the summit pi-AUiso.h Pass,.'and,.'thence  down the south.branch'of the.Similkameen by the mouth of Roche River to  Princeton, with an*..alternative cut-off  through Wol'f Creek Valley.  The estimated distance of thtsliiie  from Hope to the point of junction of  No. 1 line with the C.P.R., on the  Similkameen at Allison, is 101 miles,  but should the Wolf Creek cut-off be  adopted, 9 miles shorter; this would  leave both Princeton and Allison some  10 or 12 miles off the line, and would  not reduce the cost of the line,'  No. 3.���Coloured yellow on that portion of the line between where it leases  No. 1 at 27.63 miles up the Coquha.Ua,  and where it joins No. \ line at "Tulameen." It runs -from Hope tip the  valley of the Coquhalla, following sur  reyed-line .No. 1 as far as 27,63-iuile,  and continuing to its summit ��� 7 miles,  thence down the Cold water 9}4 'intks,  where the line turns to the south east  until it reaches the headwaters of the  west branch of Otter Creek, 1 miles,  following' it to its junction with the  niain Otter Valley about 5)1 miLes,  thence to; the junction of Otter and  'Tulameen Rivers, where if joins line  No. 1,' 17 mile, making the last portion  from Tulameen to end-of No. 1 line  V>'/i miles, common to both No. 1 and  No. 3 lines, and the total mileage 87.13  miles."  Should a line be built on the south  bank of Fraser River from Chilliwaok  up and be continued over the Hope  Mountains by this route, grade could  be made by leaving the Fraser River  some 5 miles before reaching Hope,  and with continuous grade of 3}< per  cent, the summit could be crossed, but  the. line at Hoj>e would beSOO feet above  the ftat; and the Hne would traverse  rocky mountain sides the whole distance.  After lea-ving- the; Sumallow, to the  svmntit the grades would not exceed 3  per cent. l?rom the summit to Princeton the profile, prepared from Mr. His-  lop's survey, shows that they are not  excessive, although' the work for some  20 miles would be very heavy.  Some two miles Ibelow Hope a creek  called siLver creek runs into the Fraser.  An exploration up this creek to its  summit, and east to the Skagit River,  shows it to be feasible for a line, and  the summit > less attitude than Beavei"  I/ike, hut as it strikes the Skagit at a  considerably lower elevation than  Cedar Flat the loss of grade makes it  alL the more difficult to overcome the  main summit at Allison Pass.  No. 3.---This line, which follows No.  I to the 27j�� mile on the Coquhalla,  would have to face the same heavy  grades, tunnels and protection works  which 1 have alerady referred to, besides a, similar character of country  which would have to be encountered to  its an ni mat of 1 miles.  This, however, is the lowest summit  through' this range, being 3,515 feet;  but according to Mr. Sanford Fleming's report would necessitate'grades  ranging" as 'high as 172 feet per mile  and five miles of tunnelling.' Further  surveys show that this estimate is excessive. Heavy snow slides, which appear to vary with the seasons, are prevalent, and in 1861, when ail examination was made by Mr. Turnbtill, one  of the Royal Engineers, no less than  IS are^shown on his plan.  This exploration was made in the  latter part of April and the beginning-  of May, when 8 feetof snow was in the  valley from Boston Bar Creek to the  Summit.    ,   ,  The line on the north" and'east of the  Summit would. however, "be of a much  more favourable character, and its copt  not exceed probably $15,000 per mile  for grading-, while its gradients would  also'be fairly satisfactory. This line,  from the junction of the Tulameen and  Otter VaLley, is a portion of No. 1 line,  and has been already referred to. The  tota' leng-th of this line would-be about  87.L3 males.  The result of the surveys shows that  the Hope mountains cannot be crossed  without: encountering serious engineering difficulties, vyliich would necessitate a very large expenditure of  nioney,-aadI know'-of nothing so pressing, either iu the way of development  along any line that might be determined on. to warrant its construction, outside of' aJiew prospects that have been  brought in by miners. .There is nothing- at present to give encouragement  for this expenditure, except the existence of; some very fine timber on the  westsiope.  TBe remarks I have.made in regard  to tfye probable immediate traQic on  this mountain road are not encouraging, but the serious difficulties are the  hfa.vy grades and very costly work,  the topographical nature of- the country  necessitating a considerable length of  tunnelling'and protection work, This  will entail a heavy charge for maintenance, and must ' be taken -into  serious consideration should anyone  undertake this important work.^  New goods direct from Great Britain  juit arrived at MitchelLs the Tailor.  in  Development Work is Very  Encouraging  LIKELY I III III  Ricli Ore and lots of It Bein? Ex-  tractedfFrom.  Without any flourish of trumpets or  any effort to attract public notice Mr,  Fowler began work on the Providence  claim, right adjoining the townsite,  last October. Ha.ving obtained a very  favorable bond thereon lie made arrangements for the winter's work,  Associating with himself Mr. F, White-  well, these gentlemen late in the year  set; to work to exploit the property,  The experience of Mr. Fowler in many  mines in many sections c uring many  years  served hian   well  md like the  burglar with the safe he appeared to  know just where to get in his work,  The crew has since grown but a limited number of men has been engaged,  Today Mr. Fowler has ore enough on  hand and stoped out to pay for his  bond. Already two or three prospective buyers are seeking to gain control  of the property and we expect to shortly announce that it has.'passed into  hands that will work it on a. large  scale. The Providence and Elkhorn  and Gold Bug will some-\day redeem  the camp from its repiiter ot being exclusively low grade. While for permanence and pay roll the low grade  properties are the reliance of the camp  we are glad that we can also point to  properties of a highgrade'order. Such  and such a per cent of copper is aLl  right for the big ledges, but several  ounces of gold and hundreds of ounces  of silver to the ton sounds a31 right too  we confess.  LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS I  The Birnie.Blackliome in the south  end is being injproved with fence and  lawn.  Mr. Geo. Collins has recently,painted  his residence and is now fencing and  beautifying his lot.  The painters are putting the finishing touches on Julius Ehrlich's pretty  cottage on Silver street.  A thousand dollars worth of paint  would make many thousands dollars  worth of improvement on the appearance of the town.  It looks bad to see the sides of so  many stores and buildings placarded  with show and other signs, Bill boards  and an authorized bill-poster would  check this disflgurment.  B  The Great Northern Having  its own Troubles.  Asking For Nothing, But The Rlzht  to Build.  Messrs. Elkins and MacLaine at the  north end of Kiniberley street are  showing public spirit and taste in the  improvements they are making to their  cosy cottage homes.  If the city council has the power it  might be acting wisely to have that  old tent at the foot of Copper street and  the partly burnt buildings on Government street removed. They are an eye  sore to the city and a menace to the  safety of the children who play about  them. ,'���  WANT OF CONFIDENCE'  THE COL LENS CASE.  _ Mr. Collins who left_ Green woocl__re-  cently for Rossland to establish his  innocenceof any,wrong in the case of  Miss Nellie E,ake is not having very  good success. He is before the court  there and the evidence as-' reported in  the Rossland Miner would indicate  that he and his friend Graham are one  aiid the same, that he has a wife and  several children" in England, that he  was quite attentive to the lady at home  and has carried on a correspondence  under name of Graham with her since,  The appearance of the oBicers at the  opportune moment would seem to have  prevented a reconciliation between th-c  parties. The exposure of Collins'  course would thus at least have been  deferred. The case has been sent to  the county court.  50 Pants patterns to choose from at  Mitchells.  The want of Confidence motion in  UieDunsmuir government proposed-by  the leader" of'-t^e-���3ppr5SHl3S^4affB^f  feated Tuesdaj by a vote of 19 to IS.  Others of similar tenor with similar  resuLts are likely to follow, -  WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?  It is understood that C. P. K. auditors are expertim"- the books of the Hot  Air railway novices, Their presence  and action is a matter of much conjecture. It is asserted that there have  been some very handsome rake-offs in  the purchasing and freighting departments, and that soane.of departed employes drew down large stakes, but  why C. P. "R. officials are sent out as  tracers, is a troublesome mystery to  the inquisitive.���Grand Forks.Sun.    ;  Gea.nd Forks, B.C.,April 12.(Special  to Times.)���Yesterday afternoon Chief  Engineer Kennedy of the V. V. & E.  railway received a telegram from clerk  of supreme court at Victoria notifying  him that Jndge Walkem has granted  injunction restraining the road from  either construction or operating on  their line in county of Yale from the  present time until May 6th. This  necessitates cessation of work begun  yesterday at Manly ranch where pre- ���  vious injunction has been on, and also ,  precludes operation of part pf line already built in Canada.  The application for the injunction  was made on the grounds (1) that work  on the line was not commenced until  after the expiration of the charater  granted to the V. V. & E. railway. (2)  That the powers of the company have  beed delegated to an American corporation, viz., the Great Northern Railway., compaqv. (3) That the pre��ent  work is not for the purpose of building ,  the-Coa.it; to Kootenay railway,'but  from" Cascade'to Carson, aa a part of  the line designed to run from Republic ���  to Marcus, a continuation of the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway, and instead of bringing the Republic camp  ores to the Granby smelter at Grand  Forks, a smelter in Canada, it is in-"  tended to carry them through Canad��  ian territory to the smelters at North  port and other United States points,  and thereby frustrating the express intentions ot the V., V. & E. charter.  CARD OF THANKS.  MASS MEETING.  An enthusiastic mass meeting called  by Mayor Naden was held in the city  hall last evening and resolutions passed favoring the building of the Great  Northern Railway.  CAPT. HOWE'S DEATH.  -Last-week we briefly announced tlte  accident to Capt. Howe in the Waterloo mine at McKinney. His remains  were brought to Greenwood on Sunday  and placed under the care of Gulley &  Co., undertakers, who embalmed-the  body and shipped it to Spokane, Tuesday. Mrs. Howe accompanied the dead  body of her beloved from McKinney.  The grief-stricken widow bore her  trial bravely. The story of the accident is not clear, but it would appear  as if in descending the mine Jin the  bucket the head-beam broke and striking the Captain across the head killed  him. Another person was in the  bucket at the time and with* the dead  man fell to the bottom of the shaft. It  is" presumed that the force of the drop  was. broken by. his falling upon the  body of the manager. -���'���'���  Col. and Mrs. Armstrong ministered  to to the grief of their old friend, Mrs,  Howe, as fully as possible, while she  wajs here.  BAND DANCE.  Jt made one wish he were. young  etiough to be attractive and fond  enough of hard work to like to dance to  see the company of fair women, tripping the light fantastic at the Auditorium Monday evening last. The band  boys had embraced the opportunity to  secure good music, afforded by the  presence of the Cosgrove Orchestra iit  to-wn, to give a fancy dress ball. About  eleven o'clock a Times reporter wandered down to the Auditorium. He  took a seat in the gallery and looking  down, straightway lost his head and  almost his balar ce, and came near falling at the feet of one or more of the  festive ones. High-class Japs, lo-w  class Chinamen, courtLy cavaliers,  powdered pages, and plain every-day  gentlemen everywhere smiled into the  faces of fair partners who honored  them with waltz or schottische, It as  needless to say that the ladies looked  particularly fine.  Nice refreshments were served at  midnight. The social aide of the  affair was more to the taste of the  management than the financial.  The C. P. H. have resumed their  1/a.rdo service, commencing April 14 to  twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays  on the present schedule.  Mr. J. S. Johnson of the Jewel mine  who went east Monday with the remains of his brother the late George  Johnston of the-Mother Lode, requested before leaving that his thanks'be  extended to the friends of the deceased at the Mother Lode and Greenwood  for their many expressions and acts of  sympathy. The tuneral was very  largly attended and we recall no procession in Greenwood eq nailing it except that on the day of the memorial  services to Her Majesty the late Queen  Victoria,  New  goods   at  reduced   prices   at  Mitchells.

Saturday last was a red-letter day  for the people of Grand. Forks'and  Republic as well as for the beautiful  strip of country lying- between. ' On  that' day the formal opening of the  Kettle Valley Railway took place attended by a larg-e number of invited  guests from the coast, Spokane and  interior British Columbia, The road  is completed to within about five or  six miles of Republic. ���   v  A grand dinner was given the visitors a-t Republic and sumptuous banquet  spread at the Yale hotel on. their return late Saturday evening-. The road  is about 40 miles long and is due to the  energy of Tracy "W. Holland, mayor of  Grand Forks. The construction has  been rapid and although people spoke  of itat first disparagingly as the "hot  air" line they have learned to esteem  the value of even hot-air.  The first sod was not turned until  June and the entire contract'not enter--  ed into until August. Eastern capital  built the'road.  BASE BALL  The Rocky Mountain Rangers and  Miller's Colts had a great ffameof base  ball on- the athletic grounds Sunday-  afternoon last. The Rangers did the  Colts up in grand style. In addition  to running up a score of 16 to 6 in the  first four innings they nearly killed.  the" catcher of the "Colts in the fifth.  Walter Lea veil who acted as catcher  for'the losing team didn't seein^to  realize how hard the ball was or how  fast it travelled until he got it in the  eye. Bruises, blood and stitches tell  the story. Mr. Leavell bravely endured the , blow and is at his work  again but the wound must have been  exceedingly painful.  CHANGED HIS QUARTERS.  Mr. C. V. Semerad has removed his  fruit and candy store to the Clarendon  hotel block, where he is waiting for  you ��f you want fresh fruits and vegetables or choice candies.  'HOT AIR" RISK.,  When insurance agents Cpperley,  Davenport and Bailey drove into town  in the same rig last Sunday, the Times  reporter thought there must have been  a serious fire somewhere hereafionts.  On inquiry however he learned they  were just returning from Grand Forks  where they had taken a "risk', on the  "hat air" line on Saturday last.  Simply been over the line and back  they said, but they bore marks of  having been'to aiire all the same.  The present indications are that the  Dominion Government will concede a  Member of the Commons tothe Yukon.  ft* <*��HMKH& *�����*��# ## ��*�����* C: *����*#��  * *  ft ft  ft Headquarters for ft  ft  Pishing  Tackle  A  complete stock of everything in that line,reasonable  prices.  3.

Nelson has no mines or other outside  industry within ea.sy walking- distance.  Kossland'iniries are almost in the toyVjir*,-  Ihe niercliahts can readily supply their  trade during the day time and the two  even iii g-s jSvhich stores: are kept open  for pay dayl There are no stores her  tween the mines and Nelson or Rossland but it is'differerit with Greenwood;  there are several of them between  Greenwood; and her-'tirade' aiid- they'  keep open as long- as there is a dollar  in. sight.',; Soine merchants often say  "there is no business after 7 p. mi, it  is only , working- ior nothing- to keep  open after that hour." If that is the  case why not let those who do -want to  keep open, do so. Those Who want -to  close can certainly- -ha.ve-no objection  to other sto'res. keeping- ���open if, as: they  ���sayi'-there istio.business :-fa'&o:.:a':a::a^a{  ; No doubt there is a great; deal of  ,'triutli-' inj-what';"a-citizen'?j.s'ayaabout  iGre'emvobd*; people sending ;to*! the '$&-  ipartmentistdresfor ;merchandise|;-they  could, buy", .sit -home. ���..,'Bat;i-I^;thiiik.-;',.'a  citizen'!'mistaken 'when he says, there  are, 'very , few-married miners and the  single men only require what they eat  and a few working; clothes.

Greeliw=oocl~is"so~"sithat^^^  dictate the.hours.of trade but must get  it when we; can.;-'If merchants do net  care to help out in this matter they  need xiot be surprised if others join the  miners and the people "a citizen",  speaks of and all send to department  stores for what they, need. ..I. suppose  it would be simply awful if atiy one  should advocate keeping the stores and  post office open, one or two hours on  Sunday,; but mole prosperous towns  than 'this have done so to their advantage, and if it can' be arranged to do  that here I believe it would be a good  business proposition.  This vicinity has a good many pay  days each month in which Greenwood  is interested, viz, the smelter the Sth,  Phoenix the 10th, Sunset mine and  smelter the 19th, saw mills and the C  P. "R. the 20th, Mother I/ode and  Number 7 mines the 24-th. Several  other smaller industries which pay  Saturday night* and the first of each  month. This is a nice showing, many  a town would be proud of it. Many a  town (jwould nurse that trade with  jealoiis care, talciitg every opportunity  to show their appreciation of it.  What does Greenwood do ?   What does Greenwood say ?  It rubs its eyes leisurely and yawns  co^���come��� around ��� during ��� office���  hours���  Now, as to amusements "a citizen'  is right. Miners, saw mill men, railroad men and in. fact all kinds of men  spend considerable money for amusement and you cannot draw them to a  town where the stores are closed and  no amusements iu sight.  I can best illaistrate this by comparing a good sLrong man with heart  trouble, to Greenwood. He does not  like poison but the injection of a little  poison as a lieatrt stimulent makes an  artificial life until nature recovers and  the man is able to take care of himself  naturally.  Phoenix, Grand Forks, Rossland,  Victoria and many other towns have  seen the neces&it7 of injecting artifici  al life into their towns, some of -which  might be considered poisorio tes, but it  helps to keep up the,appearance of the  towns until they are firmly landed in  advance of.other tow its like Greenwood  which would adopt a restrktaye policy.
