THE BUCRHOM MIE  Main Shaft Is Down 135 Feet and  AH Timbered.  RECORD OF THREE MONTHS' WORK  Crosscutting Has Commenced on the 100-Foot  Level-Mining Concentrates and      ,  Personals.  Three months ago today work was  first started at the Buckhorn mine, in  Deadwood camp, towards laying the  foundations for the buildings to house  the mining machinery plant, that is now  v. orking smoothly as clockwork. Yesterday a Times representative spent a few  hours at the mine, and noted the work  accomplished in that period. Credit is  due W. Thomas,: the capable foreman, and his able corps of miners  for the splendid results attained.  Outside of erecting" the buildings and  installing the machinery, the actual  development of the mine has proceeded  at an astonishing pace. Yesterday the  main double compartment^ shaft, four  feet four inches by eight feet in size,  all timbered, had reached a depth of  136 feet. At the 100-foot level cross-  cutting was progressing toward the  main ore body. The crosscut was in  20 feet from the shaft; Two drills are  at present being worked, one in the  bottom of the shaft and one in the  crosscut. As soon as the present crosscut is in a sufficient distance to allow  it, another crosscut will be started in  an opposite direction on this level, so  that three drills will be employed. It  is hoped to have the shaft down to the  200-foot level by the. 10th of next  month; It is claimed by the management of the mine that not only are the  miners establishing a record for sinking a shaft of this size, but the cost of  it, per foot, is far less than is usually  figured on for this kind of work. There  are 19 men at work on the property besides the foreman. Of these 12 are  miners.  TWO OR_$ BODIES.  ' It will be remembered that the shaft  was startfed awjjJ.y from the,.main ore,  body, which lie&."to the, northwest. At  the 100-foot level the crosscut is being,  run in that direction to come under the  65-foot shaft, sunk on the ore body in  th e early history of the mine's development. It will require fully 150 feet  of work from the present shaft to get  under the old shaft, at which point an  upraise will be made, of some forty  feet, to connect with it. This accomplished will hot only develop the  ore body on this level for a considerable  distance, but will give a thorough system of ventilation for some depth to  come. The other crosscut shortly to  be started from the 100-foot level will  run in a southerly direction to another  big pre showing, partially exploited on  the surface.  *'���'''���".     SHAXi/buT GOOD.  While the machinery plant, consisting of an 80 horse power boiler, half of  __L.lQ_dri._l_^_?ompresor and a 20-horse  power hoist, is a small one. yet~it. is"  safe to say that every pound of pressure it is capable of producing in the  running of drills and the hoisting will  be exercised to its utmost capacity.  The company has adopted a plan that  is commendable, the management believes the best results can only be ob-  tainedby employing first-class miners  at the highest wages. In the end it  will be found that the development of  the Buckhorn mine will have been  quicker and better accomplished and at  a less cost by following this policy.  ^UUUUUUUUUUiUUUUUUlUUIUiiUiiUlliUlUUiUUUiiiUUUUlUlUaUiUUUiUiUUlUUUUUt^  ^UUUUUia'UUUUiiUUiillUUiUUUiUiUiUiUlUiUUiillUiiiliUUaUiUUiUiiiliUiiiUliUUiiUiU^  ^��     "   m*~  *-"!_-      ���*���~"-���"���^"������"^MW���*^���^^���*^^������  __________  ergeant Rock Drills,  ...FOR  '���������**-v��>-.~.-v.MW^^^  =3  il 11  IS I       Air Compressors.

With regard to the amalgamation of  the Columbia and Grand Forks town-  sites I have no definite information.  Committees representing the two  towns have been appointed, but it  never seems as though they never come  together and get down to business.  Grand Forks is most anxious to have  Columbia come into her municipality, but on our side the great  question will naturally be what percentage of the debts of Grand Forks  we shall be called upon to bear," Referring to Summit camp, the speaker  continued: "I believe the coming  summer will see quite a to.vn at Summit City. It is a good location for a  townsite and has the mines to back it.  I expect to start another paper there  within two months."  R. A. Brown, president and general  -manager of the Sunset Mining company, owning the Sunset claim, on  Copper mountain, was in the city yesterday on his way to Grand Forks.  Mr. Brown was as enthusiastic as ever  over the Sunset and other claims on  Copper mountain. He is of the opinion that it is only a matter of time  when the mountain will be able to surprise the mining world in its' production of copper ore. Development of  the property is actively progressing  with a force of twenty-four men. The  main shaft is down 110 feet, and. at  the 100-foot level a station has been cut  out, and crosscutting of the ore body  has commenced. He says it is safe to  say that half the ore coming from the  bottom pi the shaft will run 20 per  cent copper and the other half 10 per  cent. The ore is getting better every  foot they go down. They are working  three eight-hour shifts in both sinking  the shaft and in the crosscuts. From  Mr. Brown's remarks it would appear  that there is quite a boom on at Princeton, as during- the past two months  some $15,000 worth of realty has  changed hands. ,  F. H. Oliver, of the reorganized  Morrison Mining- company, arrived in  the city on yesterday's train. He is  here to arrange for the resumption of  work on the Morrison mine in Dead-  wood camp. The new company was  reorganized with a capital of. $150,000,  divided into 1,500,000.shares of the par  value of ten cents per share. Of this  number half a jnillion shares have been  reserved for treasury purposes. The  company was also incorporated on an  assessable plan, so if the treasury  shares are hot placed on the market  for sale, the company may levy assessments, and thus be in a position to continue the development of the mine.  The property is .without doubt an excellent one, and the ore body has been  developed on the crosscut tunnel level  for over 200 feet. The completion of  the railway spur to Deadwood camp  will put this property in a position to  make shipments at a merely nominal  cost to the smelter. ���   ���  "~*'"-'  ^!��i^mn!m!!!m!��i!!i!!mm��!m!rmr!?mmm!ni!!!nmi!!fr!!^m��mimm!!n!!mmm!!^  | CONCENTRATED MINING NEWS, f  * -*  Robert M. Nisbet, the proprietor of  the Review of Columbia, was in the  city yesterday. He came over in connection with a deal on some mining  properties he owns in Summit camp.  Speaking of mining development  going on near Columbia, he said: "On  Observation mountain considerable  work has been done on the Bonita  claim. It is largely owned by Spokane  parties. They have just let another  contract to extend the tunnel an additional fifty feet. The English &  French company have struck a good  body of ore on their property on the  North Fork of the Kettle river. The  ore in the breast of the tunnel is said  to average $100 to the ton. The Republic Mining- company are putting on  20 four-horse teams to bring the ore  from the Republic mine to the Columbia  depot, where it wijl be loaded on the  cars and shipped to the Trail smelter.  I learned that the development- of the  O. P. claim in Summit camp, owned  by the Summit Gold & Copper company, is progressing satisfactory. The  shaft has reached a depth of thirty feet.  The last issue of the Provincial Gazette contains notice of the registration of the following" Boundary Creek  companies: The Republic Gold Mines  of Greenwood, B. C, Limited, capital  $100,000,,ih l,OCK),000_shares_o_Ohei���pa_r_  value of ,10 cents. To acquire the Republic, Nonesuch, Last Chance and  Hidden Treasure claims in Smith's  camp. Head office, Greenwood. The  McRae Copper Mines, Limited, capital  $1,500,000, in 1,500,000 shares of the pa  value of $1. To acquire the Ah There*  and Sydney M. Johnson claims in  Deadwood camp. Head office, Greenwood. The Grey Eagle Gold Mining  Co., Limited, capital $1,500,000, in  1^500,000 shares of the par valne of $1.  To acquire the Grey Eagle claim in  Greenwood camp. Head office, Grand  Forks.    That Greenwood is destined speedily  to become a very important centre of  the Boundary Creek district was illustrated by the expenditure in that city  last year of no less than $320,000 on  new buildings���an excellent showing  in view of the fact that up to the present nearly all the mining work done in  this camp has been that of development, only a few thousand tons of ore  having as yet been produced from the  mines, says the B. C. Mining Record.  The advance of Greenwood last year,  however, only anticipates by a few-  months the beginning of a very considerable output from the country tributary to it.  Superintendent Kean of the Cariboo  Consolidated Mining company returned  yesterday to Camp McKinney. He  brought down a gold brick and four  samples of quartz simply plastered  with the yellow metal. The samples  were for exhibition at the Toronto  office, the gold brick for dividends for  the shareholders., The samples came  from the new drift being opened up in  the Okanagan claim. The ore in the  new drift is said to be fabulously rich  and extra precautions arc being taken  in saving it.  1  i THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.  the  Sleekly Circles*  PTBLJSHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and PuWishing  Cornjany, Limited.  Duncaj- Ross Editor.  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10,-1900.  IMPROVE THE SERVICE.  The Nelson Tribune has made the  following sensible suggestion to the  Canadian Press Association .which  meets in Toronto tomorrow: " It is to  be hoped that at this gathering of  pressmen some effort will be made to  improve the news seTvice which the  Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company  issues to the press of the dominion as  the Associated Press report. There  are sufficient daily papers in Canada  now to entitle them to some consideration from the news associations. They  should at least be furnished with a  summary of the news from the prhtci-  pal cities in the dominion. They  should also be furnished with a summary of the proceedings in the federal  and provincial parliaments. It is said  that the Canadian Pacific Telegraph  Company, which controls the Associated Press in Canada, refrains from  sending out all such for, fear the  people should accuse it of meddling in  politics. This is the explanation which  is set up as an excuse for keeping the  papers of the Dominion out of the  news which is news and which interests the people oE the country in which  the papers are published. While it  might not. be advisable for the papers  of Canada to discard' the Associated  Press service altogether, the!i*ime has  certainly arrived for the press of .the  Dominion to make some effort to  secure'in their news service the important happenings in their own country.  The Canadian Press Association could  not be better employed on Thursday  and Friday than in ascertaining how  this object could be attained."  towns that may hereafter be incorporated from time to time shall also be  included in one or other of these three  classes; provided, however, that no  city or town shall be transferred from  one class to another except during the  month of July, and then only with the  consent of the lieutenant-governor-in-  council.  "A per capita grant of $10 for cities  and towns of the first class, $15 for  cities and towns of the second class,  aud $20 for cities and towns of the  towns of the third class, per annum,  based on the average actual attendance of public school pupils, shall be  paid quarterly by the minister of  finance, out of the consolidated revenue  fund of the province, to each, of the  municipal corporations of the city  school districts of the first, second and  third class, respectively, provided that  the schools have been conducted in  accordance with the provisions of this  act, and with the rules and regulations  prescribed by the council of public instruction. The average actual daily  attendance shall be calculated upon the  attendance for the half-year preceding  the payment."  There shall be seven trustees of the  school board instead of three, as at  present, and lands held by the crown  as school reserves are to be conveyed  to the cities in which they are located.  county court are being held in Greenwood. If the registry. were established elsewhere the same difficulty  would arise. There would be such a  preponderance of business from the  city���there- would be so much inconvenience created���that eventually the  government would be forced-to accede  to the demands of the public and  change the office. It will be much  wiser to do right at the start and avoid  trouble in the future.  TRUE   AMERICAN   SENTIMENT.  POLITICAL  CHANGES.  DANGER  OF   POLITICS.  The death of William Goebel, governor of Kentucky, preaches an^eloquent  lesson on the evils and dangers attached to a political life. Goebel rose  from obscurity because he was a s.al-  wart champion of the people's rights.  He valiantly fought against class legislation and, was an idol of the masses..  But when he himself attained power  he unconsciously became the victim of  those things upon which he so persistently waged war while in opposition. He became the director of a  political machine that cut through  every right of the people in order to  secure power. He and his party were  determined that he should be governor  against the wishes of a majority of  the people. His political machine was  used for this purpose. The result was  inevitable. Such methods courted  violence. William Goebel is dead and  Kentucky is on thc verge of a'civil war.  While the special dispatch from  Victoria is mostly conjecture it is  probable that it outlines contemplated  changes to relieve the present political  crisis. It may be possible that Hoq.  Mr. Cotton has the endorsation of the'  Conservative leaders in his efforts to  bring about a coalition government.  Liberals will not quarrel very much  with the circumstances which foist a  Conservative government on the province without the consent of the electors,  In the event of such a contingency  they will have something definite to  oppose. A strong Conservative government is preferable to a weak Liberal  one and infinitely better' than, the present aggregation. Political events at  the capital will be closely watched for  the next two or three days,  While the rabble in America are  making known their pro-Boer sympathies, the better classes endorse  Britain's position.. Alderman C.- W.  Dunbar of Buffalo voiced the true sentiment of the Americans the other day.  He was instrumental in killing pro-  Boer resolutions introduced in Buffalo's  municipal council, and in reply to a  congratulatory telegram from the residents of Port Colborne, he made the  following graceful reply:  I ani pleased to know you appreciate  my action in the council yesterday.  Your thanks, though gratifying, were,  unmerited. I should be a churl, indeed,  if I did not stand up for a country and  people that have always been my  friends, or if I forget how England,  stood by us in the Spanish war when  we needed it. It was sprung in the  aldermanic house by an Irishman. I  should like to know how an Irishman  could be an alderman.of Buffalo if our  laws were the laws the Boers are fighting for. Wherever England goes she  governs by laws that are for the good  of all, and why any people should fight  to oppose..them is past my understanding.  GREENWOOD'S LOYALTY.  in 1898, but smaller than in 1897- The  comparison is fairly satisfactory in  most branches, though the increase in  several manufacturing lin.es is relatively rather large.  This Rossland Miner which supports  the Laurier government has now formally repudiated Hon. J. Israel Tarte  on the score of disloyalty, If wholesome criticism inside the Liberal will  purge it of its. evil , tendencies, the  purging should take place very soon.  ' The decision of the government to  repeal the Alien Exclusion act will  remove the great obstacle to the development of the Atlin district and  give a great impetus to that section, of  the Province during the coming season. As the principal of this act was  endorsed by both sides of the house, it  is our turn to remark that even the  best of us sometimes make mistakes.  Anent Mr. Joseph Martin's bill to  legalize champerty, so called, it may  be said that like every other question  it. has two sides. The argument in its-  favor is that with respectable practitioners it enables even the poorest  client with a just claim to obta_n  redress ' against the - greatest .corporation. But to an unscrupulous lawyer  such a statute only offers an opportunity for more crookedness. .*-. The  legislature in its wisdom has decided  that of the two evils the former is to  be preferred, the bill having been de-  feated.by _-8tol3.  NOTICE OF PRIVATE BILL.

Mr. McBride, member for Dewdney,  has introduced in the legislature  amendriients to the Municipal Elections Act. . .One of these makes it compulsory for the clerk of every muniei  pality to make .out a correct alphabetical list of voters after the revision  of the list, stating in a separate column under what qualification each  voter is entitled to vote. Another  amendment introduces an innovation  in this province. .Instead of the old  form of ballotting, municipalities may  introduce a voting machine, known as  the Imperial automatic voting machine.  SUPREME COURT REGISTRY.  E. K.'s letter in ��� today's issue ', is  timely. We think, however,gthat che  apparent lack,of appreciation on the-  part of the. citizens of Greenwood in  reference to the going away of two  home volunteers is excusable, .The  general public were not. aware of the  departure of Messrs. Shaw and Swinburne. Green'wood is not, a recruiting  station, and when a volunteer's offer is  accepted he is not given time to notify  his friends. His departure is gener-,  ally a hurried one. Greenwood is intensely loyal,' and Greenwood will not  be slow in giving her brave soldiers' a  royal send-off when' the opportunity  presents itself. .We quite agree with  E. K. that there should be some organization to take charge of such matters,  so that when the call comes the citizens  will be in a position to give expression  to their patriotic feelings. Should any  Greenwood boys be accepted in Strathcona's Horse, they will not soon forget  the reception tendered them, by the  citizens;  EDITORIAL ' NOTES.  __ The bill introduced in the legislature  a few days ago outlines some very  sweeping changes in the school system  of the province. The changes ' affect  particularly "incorporated cities. The  clauses relating thereto are as follows:  " The salaries of teachers. employed  Jn the public schools in all incorporated  cities and towns shall be fixed and paid  at the discretion of the school trustees  of said cities and towns respectively;  and such salaries, and all other expenses for the purchase and lease of  school sites, erection, enlargement or  rent of school buildings, for furniture  and repairs, and all other incidental  expenses whatsoever, incurred by the  board of trustees in the respective cities  and towns, shall be borne and paid by  the municipal corporations of said  cities andtowns respectively."  "City school districts shall be divided  into the following classes :  "City school districts of the first class,  including all incorporated cities and  towns wherein the average actual daily  attendance equals or exceeds 3,500 for  the year.  " City school districts of the second  class, including all incorporated cities  and towns wherein the average actual  daily attendance equals or exceeds 500  for the year, and comprising at the  present time the cities of Victoria,  Vancouver, New Westminster and  Vancouver.  " City school districts of the third  class, including all the incorporated  cities and towns wherein the actual  average daily attendance falls below  500 for. the year, and comprising at the  present time the cities of Cumberland,  Columbia, Grand Forks, Greenwood,  Kamloops, Kaslo, Nelson, Revelstoke,  Rossland, Sandon, Vernon and the  town of  Wellington,   All cities   and  The Times has no misgivings regarding the wisdom of the government in the matter of iselecting the  city in which the Boundary supreme  court registry will be placed. The  government is not without personal  knowledge of the situation in the dis-  trict7 ^cit^-Tl^  commissioner of lands and  works, and  Hon. J. Fred Hume, miuisteJ- of mines,  visited the   Boundary   Creek  district  recently, and both acknowledged that  Greenwood was by far  the   most   important point in the district.   The government is anxious to do   such   things  as will accommodate  and   benefit   the  greatest number of people,.  A registry  should be so situated that   it   will   be  convenient to the   majority   of those  having business with the office. Greenwood is the most central town  in   the  district.   Grand Forks lies to the one  side of the district,  while such points  as   Midway^   Rock Creek   and   Camp  McKinney in the west,   and  Phoenix  and Eholt on the east, are tributary to  Greenwood.    The business men of the  places   mentioned   do   their   banking  business in Greenwood;   they   consult  Greenwood    barristers,     and      have  all     their     legal     business      transacted   in   Greenwood.   Greemwood is  the ' most    populous    town    in    the  district.   The municipal voters' list for  the city shows nearly 500 registered  voters, the Grand Forks' list about 200.  There are twelve.barristers practicing  in the city;  there are about half that  number in Grand Forks.    Then, too,  Phoenix, where there are two or three  practicing  barristers,   is    only    four  miles distant from the city, and the  legal gentlemen there are anxious that  the registry should be established here.  It would be a grave error of judgment  on the part of the government to locate  the   office   at   any  other   point   than  Greenwood.    For some   time   county  court was held at Midway, although  nearly all the business came from this  city.     The  public   interest   forced   a  change, and now the sittings of the  The closing down of the War Eagle  and Center Star mines is a Hard blow  to Rossland.' It means a shorter payroll by nearly $50,000 a month.  J. W. Stewart has announced that  his firm has secured the contract for  the Balfour extension. He is buying  his supplies in>- Nelson. The Nelson-  Miner ought to be satisfied.  'Another" community  sent to the Times dealing with the  music hall question. The publication  of the commuii'ication would provoke  further argument and the' question is  one that cannot be: settled by newspaper discussion.  To Thb Editor:���In your issue of the  Times this morning appears the following: " Mr. Shaw, a nephew ol C.  _^E.,:Shaw, and Alfred Swinburn, left  this city yesterday for the Transvaal."-  Little did the crowd who assembled  at the depot yesterday to give the Rossland hockey boys a send-off with  cheers three times three, think that  among the. passengers, by. the : same  train:iwere two brave boys as,ever  lived;in this thriving city of Greenwood, wh'p have left all home comforts,  relations and bosom friends, went out  at their country's call and offered their  services, yea, and perhaps their lives  that the empire to which we belong  maybe ipheldin freedom, justice and"  truth.  Yet, Mr. Editor, Greenwood let them  go without making any recognition  whatever of such an event in her history.  Could the citizens not 'organize < a'  committee with the mayor at the head,  to take action in the matter, as from  the report of the Hon. Joseph Chamberlain's speech in the hotise of, commons  a few days ago; it is the intention, of  the government to accept ail offers of  help from lier colonies, so that is evident Greenwood may be . called upon  to7sehd more men to fight for such a  glorious cause, and for such a noble  and gracious queen. My object  in writing to the press is because it is  the medium through which we may  voice the feelings and opinions of the  people and it is to the press we owe  many of the opinions we form of the  cause such as the old country and her  colonies are called upon to fight at the  present time.     -  Hoping some fabler, pen than mine  will, be enlisted- in this grand and  noble cause and thanking you in anticipation, EJ..K.  -.

The'company was organized in  the fall of 1896, to acquire the Rambler  and Park fraction claims in the Pass  Creek camp, near Eholt. A. G. Davis,  the general manager of the company,  was in town this week and to a Times  man gave the following brief description of the property and the work ..now  being done. The Rambler was located  in July, 1896, by Mr. Davis and Charles  Frank. In the fall of the same year  the company was organized with its  head.office at Spokane,; since, then the  head'office has been transferred to  Faiirhaven, in the same state, where  most of the officers and directors of the  company reside.  IS NEAR KHOLT. '  The Rambled is located about a mile  north of Eholt, in the Pass Creek  camp. Shortly after the formation of  the company work was .first started.  It has an ore body typical of the great  lodes of the Boundary Creek district,  ' the iron cap measuring some. 300 feet  in width, and; has been traced by surr  face trenching for fully 1J200 feet in  length. This primary- development  also included a prospecting shaft sunk  to a depth of 40 feet. Man ager Davis  says the-'ore is apyrrhotite and sulphide, carrying gold,.silver and copper  ��� values. Many samples of the pre have  been .assayed, with, returns; varying,  from, $4. to'$37 in all -'metals.:. Some of  the rich ore, picked; went'7'as high as  $60 to the.ton.:. After the preliminary  development had been completed work  for a time was suspended, until the  first of jlast .December, when the  officers of the company inade arrangements for the placing of a considerable  block of the treasury stock, which was  successfully accomplished. From that  time dated the permanent development  of the Rambler. This will consist of  the sinking of a. main working shaft on  the ore body' to' an indefinite depth.  The construction of substantial' bunk  and boarding houses < has been' completed.  .,;���,���, PRESENT DBV^I.OPMENT.,..'.  Mr. Davis reports5' the shaft is now  down 43 feet. It is "a vertical, shaft  4x6 feet in the cleao. At the 100-foot,  level a station will be cut out and . the  extent of the ore body ascertained at  this depth." The company has on its-  pay roll eight men. The officers of  the company are: President, T. W.  Gillette, Fairhaven, Wash.; vice-president and general manager, A. G. Davis, Greenwood, and secretary-treasurer, Mr, Strader, Fairhaven. Greenwood capital is largely interested in  the undertaking,, as there was quite a-  large block of stock subscribed for3in  this city. * The company .lias in 'hand  sufficient funds to' keep .the development going for the next six" months.  Within this period the property should  be exploited'and its merit known to  warrant the continuation of the development and the installation of the  necessary machinery plant which will  be required forits permanent working.

Times.]���"At a public meeting of  the citizens of Chesaw held last night,  James P.; Blaine, Henry Thompson  arid H. M. Mitchell were elected a  board of health, and Dr. J. M. Beal*?  health officer for Chesaw. There is uo  smallpox within fifty miles of Chesaw,  and it is proposed to take such precautionary measures as may be necessary  to keep it but of this district. Besides,  a health officer was a necessity in  order that the people might be vaccinated and certificates furnished persons  who might wish to tiross the international boundary line into British Columbia.  Notwithstanding the war in South  Africa and the smallpox scare, Chesaw is livelier than ever. There is  more building going on today than at  any time in the brief history of the  lown, and the buildings are large  frame structures of a very substancial  nature.  The Chesaw public school has been  reopened with Miss Hilda Blumenauer  of Spokane in charge. The tierm will  extend into the summer ihontlis.  V. H. Hopson and wife, both lawyers, arrived from Spokane a few days  ago, and have established an officer  under the firm name of Hopson & Hop-  son, attorneys at law.  Dell Holbrook, of Holbrook, Kean &  Co., moved from Greenwood to Chesaw. He and his family are domiciled  in the house formerly occupied by Mr.  Kean.  A SCOTTISH SOCIETY  Meetlne Held Wednesday Evening For That  Purpose.      .  Wednesday evening there was quite  a gathering of the Scotchmen of the  city at the B. C. hotel. The meeting  was called for the purpose of forming  a club. The name given the organization was the Calendonian and St.  Andrews Society. The officers elected  were: President, T. Miller; vice-president, H. B. Munroe; secretary, J. Kerr,  and treasurer, D. A. Cameron. The  membership fee will be $5. The society  will meet the first and third Wednesday's of each month. F. M. McTveod,  T. Miller and J. M. R. Fairbuirn -syere  appointed a committee to draft the bylaws. On motion John A; Macdonald  was elected piper. The executive committee are: W.H. Howe, D.; A. Macdonald, 'J. D. Douglas, - Duncan Ross,  F. M. McL,eocl, J. M. R. Fairbairn, J.  McNicol- C.* Scott -Galloway and C. F.  Alton.  Biff Companies Act.  During the past week three big, Kootenay companies 'discharged the majority of their employes and practically  closed down their mines. As has  already -been announced the War  Eagle and the Hall Mines company  took this action, and Rossland dispatches of tonight state that the B. A.  C. have. followed suit in reference to  the Le Rot. ��� There' are many rumors  current, one'of them being- to the effect:  that all big mining companies have decided to closedown as a protest against  the eight-hour law. While this rumor  cannot .'be-' authenticated, the closing  down of the three largest mines in  Rossland district and the Silver Kirig  within a week looks as if the companies  were taking concerted action. The  closing, down is a serious blow to Rossland, and'. Greenwood will be similarly  affectad if the mining companies here  join with those of Kootenay. The  Rossland dispatches follow:  Rossi.and, Feb. 9.���] Associated  Press.]���The Le Roi ceased shipping  today and paid off about 100 men this  morning, retaining about 200 men for  'development work only. It is not  expected that the move will affect the  other Brilish American corporations  mines. Shipments will not be resumed  until the new 40-drill compressor plant  ordered last October is installed and iu  working order. Manager Macdonald  declined today to estimate when shipping would be resumed. Comitig so  soon after the War Eagle and Centre  Star announcment, the Le Roi matter  causes a great deal of ttneasiness here.  In many instances the action of all  companies is alleged to be on account  of the eight hour law but there is no  confirmation of this from any reliable-  source. The Northport smelter now  owned entirely'.by the: Le Roi company  or', the B. , A. C.��� .will, of course close  down.  Rossland, Feb. 9���[Special to The  Times].���Lastnight at 11 o'clock the  hoisting engine in the Le Roi broke  down, and the management concluded  to stop further shipments until the new  machinery, which is now on the way,  is installed. This necessitates the  layingofF-6f^l60 of=*the-men-employed  in the Le Roi out of a total of 360.  This morning the 160 men were laid off.  This does not affect .the No. 1, Josie,  Columbia-Kootenay and other properties being operated by the British  American Corporation.  All sorts of rumors were flying about  concerning the matter, and Bernard  MacDonald, the manager, was seen,  and in reply to questions said : *' Yes;  the stoping and shipment of ore at the  Le Roi has been suspended for the  present. No; I cannot say how long  the suspension will last. The installation of heavy raachitiury and the  development of the mine will be the  work of the company exclusively for  some time. The development and  equipment of the Le Roi- mine . now.  going on has become absolutely necessary for its economical operation. It  is a fact that up to this time the Le  Roi mine has been operated with the  same hoist and through the same shaft  used by the original owners for a  limited output from - comparatively  shallow depths. This development and  equipment no longer serves the purposes of the company, and it will for  a time devote its energies exclusively  to the development of the mine and its  equipment with adequate machinery.  This work will be pushed as rapidly as  possible. So far as I can tell at the  present this matter will not affect the  other properties."

The signature  was sdm-'thmg new; and for a moment  he was at. a loss to account for its  strangeness. Made with a fine pointed  pen the^-haracters were like unto the  hieroglyphics of a shorthand scribe.  While puzzling over the signature the  reporter happened to look up and  caught the merry twinkle in the eyes  of Cashier Nevins, who soon enlightened him as to the author. It was the  handwriting (?) of Halt Adali, the  Turk, better known to the sporting  world as the " Sultan's Lion." It was  not long before the reporter was  ushered into his presence, where the  giant was indulging in an after-dinner  cigar, and withal feeling content with  himself and the world generally.  Rossland had treated him kindly  and had added to his ex-  ��� chequer to no small amount.  The Sultan's Lion is a genial fellow,  and though he does not speak the  Queen's English as fluently as a  native-born Canuck, he understands it  and replies^to any question more with  gestures than anything else. Asked  the best man he ever encountered on  the mat, he replied that it was Yousouf,  known as the "Terrible Turk." At  one time the two men came together  before the Sultan of Turkey and  wrestled continuously for four and a  half hours, neither being able to put  the other on his shoulders. For this  the Sultan presented each with $2,000.  At two other times he put his fellow  countryman to the mat in 60 minutes,  and two hours and a half respectively.  He has a great respect for Farmer  Burns, Jack O'Neil, D. McMillan and  Louis Cannon; he considers them all  good men, but none have yet been able  to stand up against him any length of  time. Hali Adali is 33 years old,weighs  260 pounds stripped, is six feet two  inches in height, has a chest measurement of 49 inches and a hip measurement of 48. He was born in Constantinople. He has been in America for  the past 18 months and likes the country very well. He hopes to be in Paris  within the next six months, where he  will meet Tom Cannon, the English  champion.  Registered at the Hotel Armstrong  are F. W. Peters of Nelson, C^, P. R.  general freight agent for the Koote-  nays; W. R. Maclnnes of the C. P. R.  staff at Winnipig and C. S. Drum-  mond of London, Eng. The party are  here on a pleasure trip. Mr. Drum-  mond is wellknown in the Kootenays  in connection with the Nelson Electric  Tramway company, the company being  a subsidiary company of the British  Electric Traction company of London, England, of which he is one  of the three members of the executive  committee. Mr. Peters is the London  company's representative in British  Columbia" Mr. Drummond is now arranging for the putting in of an electric-tramway system in Rossland.

FOR REGISTRY OFFICE.  Both Board of Trade and the City Council  Act,  At a meeting of the council of the  board of trade last evening in the city  hall, the question of securing the supreme court registry for Greenwood  was fully discussed and a strong resolution passed endorsing the action  taken by the city council-and the local  bar association, and the secretary was  instructed to wait on the council and  urge the appointment of Mayor Haidy  as delegate to go to Victoria and act in  conjunction with Mr. Galloway as  president of the board of trade in presenting Greenwood's claims.  A resolution was also passed endorsing the resolution of the board of  school trustees in metnoralizing the  government for another school building in a more central part of the city  for the convenience of the younger  children.

S.���The machinery  troubles of the War Eagle and the  Centre Star Co's have at last brought  about the disaster long predicted by  many shrewd mining men in this district. They are now compelled to stop  production until the new machinery  installed and the exhausted development in the War Eagle is caught.up.  The men in the stopes will be laid off  tomorrow night and only a small number retained for construction and development. Mr. Kirby, the general  manager, has issued two letters to the  management of both mines and these  have been embodied in a circular issued to the shareholders today. To  the Associated Press correspondent  Mr. Kirby expressed the disappointment and deep regret with which the  directors and management have taken  the step. All shipments and consequent dividends will cease after tomorrow and it will ��� be some months  before the new machinery will be installed and shipments resumed. The  matter can only be regarded as a disaster to Rossland camp.  ALEX. WALLACE DEAD.  A Pioneer Prospector of the Boundary Creek  District.  Alex.
