REMAINS BROUGHT TO THE CITY  Officer McMynn Will Be Here Today. When  ' It WiU Be Decided if aa laauest  Is Necessary.  ymnrrrmnrfrorflTO  Lying in the undertaking* department of Gully Bros. & Co. is the body  of a man, going under the name of  Thomas Lewis. The body was urought  to the city last night from a point on  the main wagon road between here and  Boundary Falls, where the branch  road goes to the No. 7 mine. It was  first noticed, lying by the side of the  road, by the passengers on the east  bound Penticton stage, yesterday  afternoon. The stage was stopped and  two of the travellers got out and staid  by the remains, while the rest drove on  to their destination. The stage met  Dr. Jakes, the corner, driving out to  Midway and he was informed of the  finding of the body. After examining  the remains Dr. Jakes drove on to the  Boundary Falls hotel and telephoned  to the city for a rig to bring the remains in.  DR.    JAKES INTERVIEWED.  Dr. Jakes was called up on the  'phone by the Times last night at  Midway, and in reply to an enquiry  for particulars said. "In coming home  this evening, I met the Penticton stage  between Anaconda . and Boundary  Falls and was told that a man wa .  lying dead on the road and that two of  the passengers had dropped off the  stage aud were with the remains. I  found the body near the-junction of  the No. 7 wagon road and the main  road. There appeared to be. no signs  of violence and I should judge that the  man came to his death through exhaustion. He' had evidently been  drinking. A search of his clothes was  made. He had a pocket knife, .tobacco.,  and a note book. In the note book  were two names, one was R. Lloyd,the  other I forget now. He also had a  bundle with some clothes. I notified.  McMynn and he will be in Greenwood,  to-morrow. I cannot say if it will be  necessary to hold an inquest."  THE REMAINS INSPECTED.  On the arrival of the body in town,  accompanied by Constable McKenzie  a Times man saw the remains at Gully  Bros. & Co. - The moment the constable  saw the body he recognized the man as  one having recently been discharged  from the jail after having served a  sentence of 30 days for petty larceny.  The man _was dressed in a brown  canvas, c-nat, woolen shirt and blue  over-dis". There were marks on his  facJ that might have resulted from a  fall^-sbut the police are inclined to the  belief that they were not produced that  way. Over the left eye it is considerably bruised and cut. Over the right  eye there is a slight cut, and on the  left side of his nose the skin was  broken as though from-a. heavy blow.  The "top~of the "head*-which-is bald,-  showed a depression of the' skin, but  the si* ull was not fractured. Another  thing was the position of his left arm  and the fact that his fist .was tightly  closed. It was these small details that  lead the police to think that there  might possibly have been foul means  used that brought Thomas Lewis to  his death. The deceased was a man  past 40, of robust frame, and his hands  showed signs of hard manual labor in  past days. Upon the arrival of Provincial Officer McMynn -this-morning  it will be decided if an inquest be held  or not.  WAS IN THE N.  W.   M.  J?.  From Constable Lawder a little of  the man's past was learned.. The constable had been of assistance to him  last week in helping him to get odd  jobs around town He told the constable that he had been a member of  the Northwest Mounted Police and  had been stationed, in 1892, at Maple  creek under Superintendent' Steele.  Nothing is known what occcupatibn  he followed after he left the force. He  had been employed the past year on  railroad construction, and probably  drifted into town when the line arrived here. -! On December 9th he was  arrested here and sentenced to serve  30 days in the jail for stealing a crosscut saw. His term expired last Monday week. Constable Lawder found  him employment as-; a porter in Tom  Walsh's place. He worked for: a day  or two, and did odd jobs for Mrs.  Harry King. He also worked around  the city hall. Some ;time the end of  last.week he left town, saying that he  had been offered.a position at Camp.  McKihney, a_nd started out to walk'  there. Who he hais been with, or what  he has- been. doing: since he left to w u,  could not be learned. It is probable  that he had been dead."some'"hours  before bis body was found. Thomas  Lewis, or Ellis, as he was sometimes  called, was boru in ; Eogland. His  death is shadowed in mystery.  Dr. Jakes considered it unnecessary  to hold an inquest.  CITY 0FJEADW00D  The Boundary Creek District's Latest  Townsite.  WILL HAVE A LARGE PAY ROLL  The Mines  that Surround It-BulIdlngs that  Are Going Up���Its Ideal   Location  With Lots of Water.  The prominence that Deadwood  camp has recently attained, through  the development of its numerous properties, is responsible for the laying  out of a townsite to be called the  City of Deadwood. The townsite is  located on the northern portion of  Scott McRac's ranch and 80 acres has  been -surveyed and streets laid out.  The townsite is within three miles of  town, traversed by the Deadwood spur  of the Columbia & Western railway.  It is an admirable location, on a series  of gently sloping benches, covered  with a light growth of timber and with  abundance of clear spring water. But  a beautiful location is not the only requisite for a prosperous tewn. Dead-  wood City is surrounded in every direction with developed mines and  promising prospects. It is assured a  pay roll that within a short time will  nearly equal Phoenix.  SURROUNDING   MINES.  Immediately adjoining the townsite  are the Ah There and Greyhound  properties, both being developed.  Nearby is the Sunset mine that is now  installing machinery and will shortly  have a pay roll of 40 or 50 men. Its  next door neighbor, the famous Mother  Lode, is ready to ship ore, and has  made one shipment of 100 tons to the-  smelter, and the force is to be increased  from 35 at present to 150 employees  within the next 30 days. Surrounding  this mine are the St. Lawrence, St.  Dunstan, Butcher Boy, and Silver  Crown claims, which have forces of  from two to five men.' In the south,  end of the camp is the Buckhorn mine  that has just recently installed a big  machinery plant,'and which will' have  a force of at least 25 men.' Adjoining  this property is the Arlington-Burns  property, yet in its primary stage of  development. A. E'. Bielenberg, the -  owner,, is at present in New York arranging for the formation of a company  to acquire the, group. Shortly it will  be seen that there is something to back  a townsite proposition, and this something is a pay roll.-  BUIHHNG OPERATIONS.  * Yesterday a Times representative  visited Deadwood city. The sound of  the hammer was going merrily, for  building has already commenced. T.  Kaake, an enterprising hotel man from  Phoenix, has finished his hotel and is  doing business. The Yale-Columbia  Lumber company has a saw-mil. busy  at work turning' .out lumber. The  company has a dozen men at work on  the townsite cutting timber, hauling  and putting it through the mill. Foley  Bros7a~hd Walker & Postyrtwo Phoenix -  mercantile firms; are opening branches,  H. Forbis of Nelson has secured lots  and will build a hotel. J. P. Harlem  is opening an assay office, and there  are others whom the Times inati was  unable to obtain the names of who  propose going into business in this, the  latest tovnsite of the Boundary Creek  d:ft . ict ���    eadwood city.

Duncan Ross.... .7' Editor.  SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1900.  BOUNDARY REPRESENTATION  As the government has expressed its  intention through the speech from the  throne of amending- the constitution  act in order that representation may be  granted Boundary district, the board  of trade and others interested should  seriously consider the question at an  early date. The district will be a large  one and it is important that it should  be formed in such a manner that important mining section should be thrown  into one district. A constituency including Camp McKinney on the west  and Cascade on the east would include  some of the most important mining  camps in the province. It would have  a voting population of over 1000. All  portions could be conveniently reached  by a representative. This district  would draw from the constituencies of  Rossland and East Yale, both of which  are under represented today. We  strongly; recommend that if the government, succeeds in passing the legislation outlined, the Boundary district  should*include the territory suggested.  We iiiust take exception to Hon. Jos.  Martin's remarking in the house in  reference to the granting of representation to Boundary district. He objected  to the measure on the ground that a  general redistribution bill should be  introduced and the object of the  government was to make itself safe by  subdividin g a constituency that gave a  large majority to a government supporter. The necessity for a general  redistribution will scarcely be questioned, but Mr. Martin knows full well  that a gross injustice was done Boundary district by the last redistribution  act. Mr. Martin cannot help his cause  by placing obstacles in tht way when  an effort is being made to remove this  injustice.  wonder the war office in London begari  to .question Methuen's sanity'when he  gravely reported the Modder.; river  action as "the bloodiest battle of the  century."  No one who understands the depth of  the warlike feeliiig among the English  people can believe for a minute that  they will be checked-by -these preliminary losses.  ASSOCIATED PRESS SERVICE.  The associated press service furnished Canadian newspapers has for  years been unsatisfactory. Time does  not alter it in this respect. It is as unsatisfactory now as it was five years  ago and five years ago it was sufficiently bad to call forth the anathemas  of all newspaper men, The service  furnished Cam_dian papers is not ��� an  exclusive Canadian service but is  borrowed from that sent to the different newspapers in. the States. The  news relative to English politics or  Britain's foreign relations is usually  tainted by American bias.:  Apparently some operator away back  east takes off a chunk from the full  service and sends it British Columbia-  ward. Here is a specimen of what the  poor telegraph editor is supposed to  make into intelligent news:  (Follow Rutherford Harris dispatch.)  London, Jan. 15���[Later.]���Mr. Harris  denied having received the telegram  referring to the alleged repulse of  General Buller.  It may be ignorance, but we are free  to confess that we are not acquainted  with Rutherford Harris nor his dispatch; that we don't know what is to  be followed, and that we are very glad  that this man Harris did not receive a  telegram referring to the alleged repulse of General Buller.  Nearly every night the tail end of  some interesting story is all that is  received and the newspaper man and  the readers are left to guess what it is  all about.  INDECENT JOURNALISM.  GREENWOOD'S   GROWTH.  A good indication of Greenwood's  remarkable growth is to be found in  the many substantial buildings which  are being erected in the city. Usually  at this season of the year the building  trade is dull, but here in Greenwood  the; demand for new premises overcame the barriers which the winter  months "place in the way of .active  building operations. A visitor walking  down Copper street and seeing under  course of erection such handsome  blocks as Thomas Walsh's, Louis Boss-  haTt's, the new Windsor, the Times  block and others, cannot but be convinced that the metropolis of Boundary  is Greenwood, and that it is rapidly  forging ahead of all towns in the district. Commercial travellers have exceptional    opportunities    of    making  The'conserisus  that Green-  business comparisons,  of opinion among them is  wood today is the liveliest, most enterprising and most progressive city in  theprovince.  SENSIBLE SPOKESMAN.  Those living on this side of the line  who are anxiously watching the trend  of the strife in South Africa, cannot  but appreciate the broadmindedness of  the editor of the,'Spokesman^ .Review  which prompts him to put forth views  that do justice to the British cause.  Unlike the yellow journals the Review  is not seeking popularity by twisting  the lion's tail. If comments on the  war bear the earmarks of warmsym-  pathyj towards Britain and an accurate  knowledge of the situation. The  better classes in the states endorse the  British position and the Review is only  expressing their sentiments when it  says:  So far, England has been more  humiliated than hurt by her South  African reverses. All told, her losses  from battle, sickness and capture will  fall short of 8000. The Union army  lost nearly three times that nnmber in  -the single battle of Gettysburg. In the  civil war 12 battles were fought in each  of which the Union losses exceeded  11,000 men. In one day's fighting at  Antietam the Union army lost 12,410  men, or SO per cent more than the  British have lost from all sources in  the entire campaign in South Africa.  Compared with Gettysburg, Spottsyl-  vania, the Wilderness. Antietam,  Chancellorsville, Chickamauge, Gold  Harbor, Fredericksburg, Manassas,  Shilbh, Stone River or Petersburg-, the  losses of Methuem at Modder river and  Magersfontein, and of Buller on the  Tugela river, were skirmishes  Methuen lost 4-38 men at the battle of  Modder river, about one-thirtieth the  number that Grant; the greatest soldier  of the  civil  war, lost at Shiloh.   No  The Times is always prepared to  defend newspapers against those who  believe that the criticism of public  acts should be limited to what is in  consonance with their own peculiar  views. The public acts of public men  are very properly subjects of criticism,  and so long as nothing is said beyond  the" bounds of decency every newspaper is entitled to its opinions, no.  matter how strongly they may be  expressed.  Vulgar personal references to individuals is a different matter. Last  session the Kamloops Standard received letters from Victoria that were  a disgrace to journalism. These letters were unnoticed, although they  were.good grounds for contempt proceedings. This session similar letters  are being published in the Standard.  In all probability steps will be taken  to put a stop to what cannot but lower  the tone of the provincial press. In  the letter to which the Hon. Mr. Martin  took exception in the house, the lieutenant-governor is referred to as "a  thing in gold lace," "a bewhiskered  monstrosity" 'and "an obese and  shining power'"' Joseph Martin was  described ns a "political Ishmael and  prairie outcast." Mr.~ Martin,"according to a dispatch to the Nelson Tribune,  vigorously denouueed the insults to  the lieutenant-governor and called  upon the house to take some steps to  mark its disapproval.  Premier Semlin promised that steps  would be taken to have the persons  responsible brought before the bar of  the house. The house has the power  and should use it to protect the Queen's  representative* and- the members from  the insults of irresponsible scribblers.

MENDENHALL, Agent  Martin's* argument would have some  weight. The ihcrease of population  grants Boundary,.no rights over Vancouver or other portions of the province, but. Vancouver 'was granted  representation by the last redistribution act, Boundary was practically  disfranchised. ; '  STRATHCONA'S OFFER.  Lord Strathcona's offer to the imperial government is a remarkable  indication of the patriotism of Canad-.  ians. Sir Donald Smith, as Lord  Strathcona is more familarly known  is a typical Canadian. At an early  age he became absociated with the  Hudson's Bay company and through  his exceptional business ability he  made a vast fortune in this country.  He is now Canada's representative in  London and he comes forward with an  offer to personally arm, equip and convey to South Africa 400 mounted men.  The cost of the undertaking will be  upwards of $1,000,000. The men will  be taken from .the Northwest and  British Columbia and all will beexpert  marksmen, rough riders and scouts.  The offer has' been accepted by the  war department. Lord Strathcona is  a wealthy man and can easily afford  the expenditure of this large amount  of money. His, offer nevertheless is  an extraordinary one, British history  can give no precedent for such enterprise or patriotism on the part of any  representative of the great colonies that  honor the British flag. The greatness  of the British empire cannot be diminished so long as men like Lord Strathcona .are ready to spend fortunes in  equipping picked men to fight her  battles".  LIMITED. �����'.     % .

Martin's objection to  representation to Boundary is voiced  in the ..following, paragraph from a  report of a recent speech deliveerd by  him in the house :  The proposed new representative for  Boundary was condemned by Mr.  Martin unhesitatingly on the ground  that if such things be allowed it would  be 'impossible to defeat any government. All they would have to do  would be to cut up a -'hive" and award  a safe constituency to one, two or  members to secure a majority. And if  the excuse for this was that population  had increased so much in the Boundary  district that it was entitled to another  member, then Vancouver city should  be entitled to two more on the same  ground.  "We think the reasons advanced in  the speech from the throne for granting a representative has given [-Mr.  Martin an opportunity to offer the  above criticism. There is an excuse  beyond the rapid increase of population for granting representation to  this district.

Henry Nicholson was appointed by the deputy sheriff to take  charge; of the property, pending an  adjustment of the difficulties" by the  company or:a sale of the property.      j  _      77     FIVE ACTIONS STARTED.      ; -    .-;  Five suits have been entered ag-ainsl  the company, In two of these the  Canadian Bank of Commerce and J. P.  Flood are figured as plaintiffs. Besides  the action's taken to recover there will  probably.be instituted' otherpa^es here,  as the company is indebted to more  than one party, including the local  merchants. Even the Chinese have  been let in, one Chinaman, being owed  a considerable sum for which worthless  cheques were given in payment.  GOVEBNMENT TAKES A HAND  This is not all the trouble, as the  government officials at Ottawa have  taken a hand in the game and ordered  their local representative to take possession of a mill, pending the payment of the sum due to the government. 'It is,not exactly known what  this sum amounts to,'or for what it is  due The matter is in the hands of the  customs department at Ottawa. The  amount is said to be $500. It is hard to  say just how much the company is  owing. At the time the mill started to  turn out a small gold brick, every now  and then, the public were duly informed  and by the time'the item would go the  round of the press, the sum the mill  was producing ��� became greatly ��� enlarged.   , On , the   outside  little , was  t(�� 1 / I     ''1 l>l I ,  known of the company's 1 affairs, but  here, it'hasbeeri known'for some time  that things were uot exactly alright.  WAS TO  RE-ORGANIZED  i    t -      ( I ,    ��� ,-   J 'T  Mr. Hays left for the east some weeks  ago,"] and it was. tlien stated that there  would be ajre-organization of the affairs  of the company. No company received  such a lot of "free boosting" as did the  Camp McKinney Mines, Ltd. It was  done chiefly to sell stock. The company started operations a year ago  next month, and it "appears that this  brief period has been amply sufficient  to result in a great deal of mismanag-  '"���- -' -md to place the property in such  a *li ���"'���*' state of indebtedness. The  claims owned by the company are promising, the work done was by shaft  __8unk on a_ strong six foot yein^ of  ifUajrz. The sale of the mill and pro  pe'i*ty is set for the 27th.  'H-l, I  STORY    CORROBORATED.  eputy Sheriff :Elkins was seen yesterday by a -imes man and corroborated  the   above'report,   sent by   the  correspondent.:   He   said   he   went'to  \i       ���'. ���       ., ���     ��� :.   ...

G.  .-ley, the customs officer, had been  instructed by the Ottawa authorities  tojseize the mill. He did not know for  what indebtedness. On his arrival at  the mill he found no notices of seizure  and therefor took possession of same  and the ground under. five writs. He  does 'not know what action the government will take to secure its claim. The  Banner and Granite claims were about  to bi: crown granted,and Mr. EJlkins was  advised by wire from Victoria, but a  deed had not yet been issued.  CHESAW  HEWS.

C in Snmmlt  Camp to SMp-The Records���Metal  Quotations.  Spokane capital is behind the  Butcher Boy Gold and Copper Mining  company, owning the Butcher Boy in  Deadwood camp. The company held  its annual meeting in this city on  "Wednesday and elected a board of  directors, as mentioned in yesterday's  Times. General Manager John Mack  was out to the property yesterday in  company with Vice-President J. E.  Tormey, and on their return the following information was obtained about  the claim:  A LAKGE ORE BODY.  The Butcher Boy is located in the  north end of Deadwood camp, northwest of theMother Lode, and adjoining  the Primrose and St. Lawrence claims.  It was located on August 28,18%,. and  the present company was formed last  October. The claim has been surveyed  and an application for a crown grant  vrill shortly be made. It is a full claim  of 52 acres in. extent. The surface  showing of the ore body is large, being  over 250 feet in width. It is a quartzite  and the ore shows copper pyrites and  copper carbonates. The values are  sufficiently encouraging, while low, to  warrant the expenditure of money in  a I thorough prospecting of the lode.  This work will consist of sinking a  prospecting shaft to a depth of 100  feet, with; crosscuts through the ore  body at the 50 and 100 foot levels. The  company has constructed a comfortable  bunk-house, 14x16 feet in size. The  employees, are boarded at the Mother  Lode boarding-house.  77.THK DEVELOPMENT.  The surface exploration work consists of two trenches 40 to 50 feet in  length and three feet in width. Considerable gravel wash was encountered,  lying over the ore body for a depth of  about three feet. There are also other  surface open cuts exposing the ledgRtn  several places./ Midway between, the  two long trenches the shaft, 4x6 feet in  the clear, is now being sunk. Yesterday it had reached a depth of 45 feet,  all timbered.. If the character-of the  ore improves as depth is attained the  company will install a power plant and  compressor. It is the intention of the  management to thoroughly prospect  the ore body. A night and day shift  under Superintendent H. W. Warrington will be kept constantly at work until this is accomplished. The company  is said to be amply supplied with funds,  has an efficient board of directors and  a good management.  The annual meeting of the Butcher  Boy Gold andCopper Mining company  of Spokane was held in this city yesterday.- -Attending the meeting, besides  numerous local shareholders, were John  Macff^na~jr^E7 Tormey'of Spokane.-  The officers elected for the coming year  ���who will attend to the interests of-.'-"the  company, were: ��� President, George  JPahl7 Spokane; vice-president, J. It).  Tormey, Spokane; secretary, D. M.  McLeod, Spokane; treasurer, Frank  Shoenwald, Spokane, and resident  director, Louis Blue, Rossland. John  Mack was appointed manager and H.  W. Warrington mine superintendent.  A full report of the company's property  in Deadwood camp; the work accomplished and future plans will appear in  tomorrow's mining department of The  Times. '*-���'���  The First Shipment.  Superintendent Richard H. Hutchens  of the Mother Lode mine, has returned  to the city from Trail. He went down  to the smelter town with the recent  shipment of 100 tons of ore from the  mine. Yesterday he said: -'The ore  was put through on Sunday. It" will  be some time before we hear the  returns, as the same will go to the  New York office first, where Mr. Keffer  is at present.  His Wife Saved Him.  My wife's good advice saved my life,  writes F. M. Boss of Winfield, Tenn.,  for I had snch a bad cough I could  hardly breathe, I steadily grew worse  under doctor's treatment, but my wife  urged me to use Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, which tcom-  pletely cured me. Coughs' -colds, la  grippe, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma,  hay fever, and all maladies of chest,  throat and lungs are positively cured  by this marvellous medicine. Fifty  cents and $1.

This mine is now ��� prepared  to send out four carloads every alterv  nate day.  Drifting on the 250-fobt level in the  B. C. mine has been started, and the  winze is being continued from the 50  to the 150-foot level. Over 30 men are  employed.  Secretary K. K.
