I  .���"ranch Office, Russian*!, B. C;  MONTREAL, P. Qi  Joies D. Swora, Mgr.  Superintendent L. L. Patrick of the  Poland China mine, ; in the Myers  Creek camp, was in the city yesterday.  He came in from Chesaw with George  B. Median., the Montreal mining  operator, who has the bond on the  mine. When work was resumed Mr.  Patrick was placed in charge of the  development. There has alwaj-s been  a difference of opinion as to the trend  and extent of the ore body on the property. In th^e early history of the camp  the fame of the Poland China had  spread far and wide. Its surface showing was spoken of as being phenomenal. The quartz was there in abundance, and by a fortunate stroke of luck  the early prospecting opened on the  surface a rich streak, which carried  gold that literally ran away up into  the thousands. Today there is on the  dump taken from one prospect hole ore  that is worth hundreds of dollars to  the ton. The quantity, however, is not  large. It was this streak that puzzled  the original workers of the claim.  They believed the vein ran north and  south; others had difierent theories,  but it remained for Mr. Patrick to  settle the question. Mr. Patrick i.*.  firmly of the belief that the trend of  the ore body is east and west. The  vein on the surface, as proven by extensive trenching and many open cuts,  measures 65 feet, with a porphyry on  the north side and a slate formation  on the south.  1    HOW   J.EVKLOVED.  From Mr. Patrick a Times man  gained .-the . following information :  The. old workings on the claim were  uthiee.shait-.^_When the present people  went to work they proceeded-to continue the developemen t of a level from  a shaft at a depth of 45 feet, as also to  devote considerable time to a thorough  prospecting of the surface of the  claims. At the 45-foot level from the  shaft which was sunk .on the ore body,  a cross-cut was run north through the  same for a distance of 45 feet. The  ore was quartz heavily impreganated  with graphite, which gave it a black  appearance, carrying iron and streaks  of slate. At the same depth a drift  wa& run west for 40 feet, and as the  drift obtained gieater depth, on  account of the slope of the-hill, it was  noticable for the last 20 feet that the  character of the quartz was changing  from the dark material to a much  lighter color with here and theie  streaks of white quart.,.  V  *SEV SH._L"T.  Thc company have now started a  shaft 200 feet wes>t of this old shaft  higher up the hill. This "shaft is being  sunk on the hanging wall side of the  vein. It is a double compartment  4/>_x8 feet in the clear, and isdown 18  feet. Tha Poland China group has  just been surveyed. There are 14  men employed at the mine.  ON  OTHER   MINES.  Mr. Patrick said that considerable  work was being done on the Crystal  Butte group.. The management has  commenced the running of two crosscut tunnels tos tap the Crystal Butte  ledge at depth. Both have; only  recently started. Que is being run on  the , Crystal Butte claim,... under the  present workings, and the other is on  the Dead Horse claim, adjoining.  On the War Eagle, which adjoins  the Wisconsin to the west, they are  crosscutting the ore body at the 100-  foot level in the shaft.  ; It is said that work will shortly be  resumed on the Yakima. The claim  has had considerable money s.pent on  it, opening up $ body of galena that  runs well. Those who know the property entertain hopes of it making a  'mine.' ' ' 7   . '".

SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1900.  SIR WILFRID'S PATRIOTISM.  Those who claimed that Sir Wilfrid  Laurier had no strength outside his  charming personality are discovering  their mistake. He is always polished,  dignified and graceful, but when the  opportunities present themselves he  shows that he has also all the characteristics of a great statesman. Some  twenty years ago Sir Wilfrid fought  one of the bitterest elections ever held  in the province of Quebec. His opponents accused him of being in  sympathy with those misguided  Frenchmen who cannot realize that  French prestige perished with Cham-  plain. He took up the gauntlet thrown  down, and made a, noble defense of  Canadian liberalism and he won.  Today similar tactics are being adopted  by his political opponents. A studied  endeavor has been made to make Sir  Wilfrid and the Liberal government  scapegoats for irresponsible men. The  conservative party are taking credit  for all the loyalty* and patriotism shown  during the past few months, and an endeavor is being made to fix the stigma  of the disloyal utterances 'of:'-a! few  irresponsible individuals on Sir Wilfrid  and his government. Those' who  pursued such a foolish course got their  answer at Sherbrooke the other day.  No one can read the premier's., words  without being impressed with the fact  that they came from a man intensely  loyal.    Sir Wilfrid said in part:  "The mother country is engaged  in the greatest war, perhaps, that it  has been engaged in -during 7 the  century, the war with the Transvaal  republic. We believe it our duty as a  British colony to take part, in this war  and to permit 2000 Canadian volunteers  to enlist in the English army and to  light for the mother country. We did  it because we believe, it our duty to do  it in response to the unanimous sentiments of the people of this country.  We are a free country; burs is a consti-  tu tionai 'government, arid our duty is  to put into execution the popular will,  and the moment the popular will was  known to us ve had but one duty to  discharge, and we discharged it of our  own free will. There was no power to  constrain us to act as we did; but in  the plentitude of our legislative in-  dependance- we had the right to reply  to the popular will, manifested to  us. We did not do it for the purpose of lending England a material  which she did not need, but  we rejoice at - the opportunity  of giving to the world a spectacle  never seen before���the spectacle of the  colonies behind the mother country���  and that we could not remain indifferent when England had a war with one  of her enemies. We showed the world  that the British empire was above all  a land of liberty, and that there was  " enough^libertyin-that-empire to make  it the duty of every citizen to affirm  its unity when the occasion presented.  We are told, that French-Canadians  have nothing to do with that war.  Gentlemen, I am here to speak no language but the language of truth. I  am not here to say anything which I  would not wish to repeat elsewhere.  The war does not affect English and  French-Canadians the same way.  With Canadians of English origin it  was the voice of the blood that spoke,  the most powerful voice that can appeal to the human heart. When Canadians of English origin knew that  their brethren were fighting in Africa,  their blood boiled and they burned to  go to their kindred's aid. It was not  the same voice that spoke to us of  French origin; it was the voice of  gratitude, the voice of national solidarity, which summons us all to be united  under the flag of the country in which  we live."  & Western railway. They enjoyed the  comforts of living at a first class hotel  and held their annual meeting in the  comfortable parlors of the Armstrong.  The managing director's report' told  about a working shaft, drifts, stoping  ore and ore dumps, about a complete  mining plant, the near approach of the  railway to^the mine and certainty of  steady shipments at an early date. A  first class hotel takes the place of a  fifty dollar shack, a prospect becomes a  mine, and a rough looking mining  village develope sinto a solid city. All  of which makes not a bad showing for  two years.  THE   SHIPPING  STAGE.  Boundary is now a shipping district.  A half dozen mines have already sent  ore in carload lots to the smelters;  they are ready to maintain a steady  shipment as soon as cars are available,  and other mines will soon be placed on  the shipping list. When the returns  are received from the smelters'; the  greatness of Boundary as a mining  district will then become an established  fact. There have been so many disappointments in ".he mining world that  the most experienced mining men are  wary about accepting any statements  regarding prospects as absolute facts.  Big ledges and good assay values will  not convince them. Steady shipments  and smelter returns alone can establish the wealth and permanency of a  mining district.  pox on the Colyille Indian reservation.  There are over forty cases in a pest-  house at Nespeliin. The authorities at  Republic 'have taken precautions to  guard the town against the invasion of  the epidemic. Indians as a rule do uot  take kindly, to .the. modern methods  used to stamp out this terrible epidemic, and there is a possibility that  some of them may wander north to  escape necessary restrictions. The  provincial officers should be instructed  to take all precautions to prevent the  Indians from the affected district  coming in contact with people on this  side of the line.  ASSOCIATED    PRESS    SERVICE.  PUBLIC   OPINION.  The strongest factor in influencing  public bodies is public opinion. Public  opinion was against the C. P. R. when  they attempted to coerce the little town  of Moyie to accept its harsh terms in  reference to the securing of a railway  station. Public opinion was against  the same company when it undertook  to kill the town of Grand Forks by  building a rival town in the immediate  vicinity. This powerful railway company attempted to run against public  opinion for a time but it soon discovered that it was in its interests to  regard the wishes of the public. The  long and desperate struggle between  the railway company and the* citizens  of Moyie was ended last week by the  C. P. R, building a station at Moyie.  Because the people of Moyie would not  grant the C. P. R. one half the town  for the privilege of having a railway  station, the company decided to establish a town two miles farther on and  called it Moyelle. The railway company has seen the folly of running  against the wishes of the public and  has built a station in the original  town. It is also understood that the  Canadian Pacific railway is encouraging the amalgamation of the towns  of Columbia and Grand Forks. Even  the Canadian Pacific railway, with all  its influencep cannot do profitable  tmsiness in the face of public opinion.  The Associated Press is improving  its service. It is beginning to understand the kind of news the readers of  the Times are looking for and is sending it along. The denizens; of GreenT  wood are getting tired of live war news  and will welcome the following salutatory in last night's dispatches:  'Ne\vYo__k, Jan. 22.���Frank Gould  has just imported a new St. Bernard  dog from England, which has been  added to his7$7S,000 kennel of St.. Bernards at Lyridhurst. He is the largest  dog of his class in the country and  weighs 238 pounds and cost.$5,000.  Our contemporary, the Greenwood  Times, now appears as a daily, and a  sprightly one it is. It is not a mammoth sheet, but, like the oak and the  acorn, with the growth of the interior,  it no doubt will expand. We wish it  every success. Its enterprise deserves  this.���"Vancouver "World.

Every town of any importance in  Canada has already contributed largely  to the fund for the assistance of those  dependent on the brave fellows who  j^iigtomgjnj-he Transvaal. Greenwood has been a little slow in taking  steps towards making an organized  effort to swell the fund, but next week  there will be a Pay, Pay, Pay concert  in the city and it is hoped that the  residents will show not only their appreciation of the efforts of those who  worked industriously to make the concert a success but will also tell the  world .that Greenwood's loyalty- is  something more tangible than mere  words and that her citizens are ever  ready to assit Tommy Atkins. Every  one cannot go to war but real service  can be given one's, country without  shouldering a musket. Every one in  the city should patronize the concert  and if not by attending at least by  purchasing a ticket.  On Smallpox.  Dr. Schon, city medical- officer of  health, addresses the following communication to The Times regarding  the rules and regulations governing  smallpox :  To the Emtok : .Would you kindly  give a i>lace ia your valuable newspaper to the following:  " Section 52 (Provincial Board of  Health ; re Smallpox). In every health  district where smallpox exists, or in  which in the opinion of the provincial  board of health or the medical health  officer, there is danger of its breaking  out, owing to the facility of communication with , infected localities, the  medical health officer * shall require the  vaccination, or revacciriation-, --of- all*  persons resident within his jurisdiction  who have not been vaccinateel within  seven years; and that such vaccination, or revaccination, shall be carried  out in,so far as the-same may"be applicable in the same manner as for the  vaccination of children."  The medical health officer desires it  to be stated that -��� he has received  intimation from tlie 'provincial board  of health that smallpox is epidemic in  Spokane and surrounding country.  He has been req tested to take all precautions to prevent its entrance into  this city, and strongly urged as to the  need of vaccinating all unvaccinated  adults" and children.  By regulations provided, it is incumbent upon any householder knowing or  suspecting that any person within his  hbusehold.has smallpox to immediately  give notice to the medical health officer.  A teacher in any school who has reason to suspect-that any pupil is suffering from smallpox, or that smallpox  exists at the; house of any pupil, shall  notify the medical, health officer immediately- and-prevent-attendauce_of_the  pupil.   ,  THE   WAR.  Two years has worked a complete  metamorphis  in   Greenwood.     Three  years  ago   Hon.    T.    Mayne    Daly,  Walter Orde,   Andrew   Kelly,  W. A.  MacDonald and other directors of the  Brandon and Golden Crown company  came to Greenwood.    They were supposed to come by the stage but they  walked up the hills to relieve the tired  horses and   sometimes   walked down  because  they   were   afraid   to    take  chances.     The annual meeting of the  company was held in a shack on Gold  Street.   The managing director in a  well   written  report   enthusied   over  open cuts and a tunnel and timidly  referred to the time when the_ mine  could boast  of a steam plant.   Last  night the same directors were in the  city.   They enjoyed the luxury .of a  first class passenger coach   and- the  scenery along the line of the Columbia  The outlook for the British forces in  the Transvaal is not so promising as it  was a few days ago. Judging from  the press dispatches, General Buller's  position is rathea a desperate one. Any  effort made to push forward towards  the release of Ladysmith will likely  entail a heavy loss to the British  forces. The war is knocking out all  the hard and fast theories of the military experts, but the final result cannot for a moment be' doubted. Every  war makes its own heroes and its own  generals, and it would not be at all  surprising if the credit for restoring  the prestige of the British arms and  bringing the war to a successful issue  should fall to one who has not yet won  his spurs, simply because the opportunity did not present itself.  SMALLPOX   ON   RESERVATION.  The attention of the provincial authorities is directed to the fact that  there has been a bad outbreak of small-  Rossuxno.

Phoenix, Jan. 26���[By telephone to  The Times]..���A largely attended meeting of the citizens of Phoenix, including the representatives of the Cameron,  Old Ironsides and New York townsites,  was held last night at Miners' Union  hall for the purpose of taking steps  towards incorporation. The representatives of the Old Ironsides and New  York townsites opposed incorporation  for the present. However, the citizens  appeared to be larg-ely in favor of it,  and after a lengthy discussion a resolution was passed authorizing a committee of seven to take preliminary  steps, with power to raise funds and  send a special delegate to Victoria.  About 200 were present and the most  friendly feeling prevailed.  '..he Phoenix hockey club was organized this woek, with IS members.  The Old Ironsides company is about  to start the erection of twenty more  cottages for its employees, located on  the Victoria, near the newbunk house.  Advices received from Montreal last  night confirm the report that steel will  be laid into Phoenix this winter and  that too very shortly.  The C. O. P. held a smoker in their  finely fitted hall this week. Songs,  and speeches in seven different languages, with clog dances was the programme. The artists included  Darraugh, Simpson, Craw ford, Thompson, Wilcox and Doctors Gordon and  Slack.  The .construction of Vaughan and  Mclnnis' cold storage warehouse- on  Malcolm avenue is well under way.  The- building is, to be 30x95. feet in  size and two and a' half stories in  height.

Shallenberger was in the city  yesterday from Deadwoo'd camp. He  is doing surface work on ttieTMoreen  claim, which is the southerly extension  of the Buckhom and has the same ore  body. The present exploration work  is to locate the best place to sink. Some  70 feet of trenching has already been  accomplished.    The claim is surveyed.  senger trains have not been run between Greenwood - and Midway. It is  anticipated, that a great deal of the  traffic to and from Republic will go via  Midway for the reason that there is an  excellent road between the two places,  over which large loads can be hauled.  Mr. Holbrook says that Greenwood is  glowing rapidly, and a munber of  buildings are in process of erection  there. One of the largest properties  to be incorporated in the vicinity of  Greenwood is the Ah There. It is in  the Deadwood camp near the Mother  _7ode.

Johnson claims in Dead-  wood camp. The company is capitalized for 351,5000,000, in one dollar  shares. The first allotment of treasury  stock has already been subscribed for,  practically the 75,000 block at 3% cents  per share being taken on this market,  with a little in Spokane.  The Ah There, upon which the development has been done is a most  promising claim. Recently a Times  man examined the underground workings which consist of a shaft down 58  feet all timbered, with a cross-cut east  through the. ore body, at the 50-foot  level, of 45 feet.' The directors propose  ordering a machinery plant at once,  and will continue the development  down as rapidly as possible. ' The  plant will consist of a 20 h. p. steam  hoist and a 40 h. p. boiler, sufficient to  thoroughly exploit the claim.   ..  IN THE LABOR WORLD.  r  ^u^tctjj ���*,.|n.Kn,?t*o��t!

He reports that the construction on the smelter of the British  Columbia Copper company, limited, at  Greenwood, is making excellent progress. It is expected that it will be  ready to begin active operations by  June at the furthest. A residence for  Paul Johnson, the manager of the  smelter, and an assay office are being  erected. Mr. Johnson and Frederick  Keffer, the manager of the Mother  L"de,-have been in New York consulting with -the officers' of the company  there as to the future plans.

There can be no  doubt from the remarks what the  character and purpose of that institution is. There never could be much  doutit to those who are acquainted  with such concerns in other places, or  those who are aware of the attempt on  the part of those interested in the Alhambra, b}' corrupt means, to get possession of an opposing petition and  prevent it from reaching the authorities. Professions of orderliness and  obedience to law are simply bosh. But  this aside, it is clearly the purpose ot  the management to run the lowest  place that the city will allow. They  must, rely upon the sale of liquor to  make it (a house of innocent amusement) pay. Not only so, it will not  pay unless a free hand be granted to  sell in the boxes "from which comes  the bigger, portion of the revenue."  This frank confession speaks for  itself. It reveals the purpose of the  business. "We do not blame anyone  for not converting a business enterprise into a philanthropic institution.

COUNTY COURT.  Cases That Came Before Judge Spinks and  the Verdicts.  Judge Spinks wns engaged the best  part of Tuesday hearing cases in Mrs.-  Foreman 's hall, some of which were  settled and others adjourned to the  next meeting of the county court. The  most important case bn the docket was  that of John Mulligan v. L.'Blue, A.  Fisher, J. L,indsay and the Phoenix  -L/Uinbercompatiy. The action was for  damages by reason of the defendants  appropriating to their own use the  timber on the plaintiff's mineral claim.  Following is the written judgment  handed.down in this case::" The mind-  is entitled to the use of all the timber  on his claim for mining purposes.  Any one who takes timber from his  claim interferes with that right and  commits a trespass. The defendant  has cut and carried away trees off the  plaintiff's claim, the exact quantity  the plaintiff eannot; show; but he  claims for 91 trees,.and the defendant  does not contradict that claim. :.I give  judgment for $45 as damages."  ; The other cases on the docket were  disposed as follows: P.

Yesterday the visiting directors of  the Brandon and Golden Crown Mining  company, under the guidance of managing director, George H. Collins, paid  a visit to the mine. On their return  the president of f he company, Hon. T.  Mayne Daly, Q.C., was seen and expressed himself as being well pleased  with the outlook for the mine and the  work of development. -��� We propose  sfiippin:g=7] ust-^as^ so6n-*as=cars=can"be  obtained at Hartford Junction, where  the steei is laid on the Winnipeg spur,  a distance of a little over a mile from  the mine. On the dumps we have  fully 2,000 tons of ore. immediately  available for shipping to the smelter.  Briefly the mine is developed by amain  working shaft to a depth of 320  feet, with levels at 100,150 and 300 feet  respectively. At the 100-foot level a  crosscut is being run to the ore showing that was exposed on the surface by  the railroad grade. This work is in  120 feet. From the 150-foot level we  have obtained in-the drifts some of our  best grade of ore. An upraise from  this level connects with the No. 1 level.  Here we have a large body of ore  blocked out for stoping purposes. At  the 300-foot level we are also driving  a crosscut to encounter the Winnipeg  lode. This crosscut has progressed  a distance of 350 feet from, the  shaft. We have arrauged to have  built as soon as possible ore bunkers.  When the railroad spur is completed to  the .Winnipeg mine we shall be in a  first class position to make steady  shipmenst to the smelter. -You can say  lhat the board of directors are perfectly satisfied with the result of the  trip, we have not only had an enjoyable time in your city, but we return  home more than ever convinced of the  greatness of the mines of the Boundary  Creek district���-and especially of the  Brandon & Golden Crown."  Monday evening the board of directors held ai meeting in the Hotel Armstrong to discuss the business of the  company generally, and decided upon  a policy, as outlined by Mr. Daly, for  the shipment of ore.
