DEVELOPMENT OF CRYSTAL BUTTE  what'Is Being Done on an  Im porta nt Myers  Creek    Property���Will Tap the Ledge  "at 350 Feet.  Superintendent Parrish of the B. C  mine is in the city on business. From  him the Times learns that the work of  installing the new machinery plant is  being pushed forward as rapidly as  possible. The ��� two 80-horsepower  "boilers are in-place and the brick work  is about completed, The foundations  for the engine and the compressor,  which is half of. a duplex 20-drill plant,  are nearly finished. He does not think  it will be necessary to close down the  mine while putting in the gallows-  frame for the hoist. At the present  time little ore is being shipped from  the B.VC. The. shiptpents now hardly-  average a carload a"[ day. The total  shipments to date are a little oyer 2,000  tons. The development at the present  time is'being prosecuted at the second  and thirdTevels. On the second level,  at a depth of 160 feet in the shaft, they  are-drifting in ore both north and  south.; On the third level at 260 feet  depth the work,is being confined to the  south drift. The installation of the  plant will.place the mine in a position  for large shipments.  ON' THE CRYSTAL BUTTE.  " John Mbynham of Spokane, consulting engineer for. the Crystal Butte  mine, in the-Myers creek camp," arrived In the city yesterday. Speaking  of thev.'work being carried on on the  Crystal Butte group, he said: *' We  are at .present developing both the  Deudhorse and Buckhorn claims. In  the. Buckhorn -a ^crosscut tunnel is  being riini which is. in 200 feet and  neawrigita-objective^^he^l^^'will  be struck at a depth of 350 feet. On  the Buckhorn claim the tunnel is being  run on the ledge and is in 17->-feet in  good ore. Forthe present we are not  doing any work on the Crystal Butte  mine proper, and have suspended same  until we shall install a* power plant.  The company have in view putting in  a 5-drill compressor at an early date.  Our: intention is tbget" the .proper!ies  of the company -thoroughly deveioped  before starting the mill again.

By a clever piece of detective work  the police department believe they  have in custody one of a gang of three  men who have been operating iu the  C. P. R. freight yards. Recently a car  was broken into and a considerable  quantity of tobacco stolen. Two caddies were subsequently found hidden  under a freight shed. "While the tobacco could have been restored at once  to the company, the police determined  to try and arrest the parties. Monday  night a man was detailed to watch the  freight shed, but nothing turned uj.  All day yesterday a similar watch was  maintained, but it was not until late  .last night that any one attempted to  take possession of the tobacco. Then  Andrew Kelly appeared On the scene  and was promptly arrested; When  taken to jail he said he was innocent  of any wrong intention. The police  believe otherwise. The preliminary  hearing of the case was set for this  morning, but an adjournment was  made until tomorrow to allow the  police furthei time to investigate.  | NEWS OF THE RAILS AND WIRES f  *   The sub-spur to the Rathmullen mine  has been finished. 7 .���  ; H.

A Grand Musical Success���Everybody Pleased  '    and tbe Church Profited.  The Louise Brehany   concert in the  M. E. church last evening was well attended and the audience showed appreciation of this musical treat by calling  for encores to nearly every  selection.  These were responded to willingly aud  in some cases  proved even   more enjoyable than the selection on the programme.   The performance upon the  piano by W.  Guillaume Sauviet,  and  the violin work by Miss Olga Schmoll,  were especially fine.     The   little vior  linist was unusually  graceful in handling the bow* and showed great depth  of feeling in her music.     The encore  which she gave���the Intermezzo from  Cavalleria Rustlcana���and  her selection from Faust, showed her best work.  The   bird-like   quality   of   Miss   Brc-  hany's  voice was shown in  the trills  and little runs, all of which were given  unfalteringly   and  with an    accuracy  somewhat remarkable.     It is hardly  fair   to specify the good work, as on  the whole the programme was exceptionally good from  beginning to end  and greatly enjoyed by  all present.���  St. Johns,  Mich.,  Independent.   This  company will   appear   in  this city on  Wednesday evening, April 18.  THE SEASON OF THE FLOODS.  Dknnison, April 12.���High water is  reported at all points in the, Red. river  territory. The Red river has risen 10  feet within the past 24 hours. The  Washita is in a big boom and an overflow is threatened. Advices from  Texakaua say that the Red river hat-  risen 8 feet and is increasing 8 inches  an hour. The rise cornea from the upper tributaries and will be augmented  by the heavy water spouts of the past  24 hours in this section. The Sulpur  and Little rivers are also booming, the  latter being out of its banks in the  i lower lands.  A strike of more than passing importance has been made on the Buckhorn mine in Deadwood camp. For  some time they have been driving a  crosscut from the 100-foot level in a  northwesterly direction toward the  main ore body. This crosscut is in a  distance of. 170 feet, and for the last  20 odd feet has been encountering  stringers of copperore. Yesterdaythe  drills run into what was evidently a  pocket of rich chalcopyrite; This  morning, in company with Mine Manager Noble, a Times man went out to  the property. An examination of the  breast of the crosscut and the ore  brought up to surface'was convincing  enough to the most skeptical that there  was plenty of ore coining in. The  whole face, while to a more or less extent broken up at that depth, was ore.  In places the bright colored chalcopyrite showed up plainly in small bunches  and stringers. Mr. Noble had some of  this class of ore assayed, and it went  32 per cent copper. From every indication it would appear that in a short  time they would have a body of it.  . At the 200-foot level crosscutting has  been, started both north and south.  The work is in each way a distance of  30 feet. It is-.the .intention to continue  the crosscut on'the 100-foot level for  some distance further before an upraise will be made in the near future to  connect with the incline. They will  need to raise about 40 feet to make the  connection. This will shortly be necessary for the proper ventilation of the  ���mine.i���'^--..---'-'-;----.:-���'���->-*������-'.- .-������_"���������������-y--:���  This morning the new cage, made at  the miner and which was installed  yesterday, was working to* perfection.  It is a neat piece of handiwork, and  being made on the ground- reflects  credit on Superintendent Thomas, who  designed it, and his men who made it.  BONDED THE MOREEH.  This morning another big deal was  made in this city when Andrew Laidlaw of Spokane, on behalf of his eastern Canadian associates bonded for  $30,000 the Moreen claim in Deadwood  camp. The Moreen is the direct south  extension'of'the- Buckhorn mine and  carries the same ore body. It is  owned and has been partially developed by Harry Shallenberger, who has  applied for a crown grant. The development has been done at the tiorth end  of the claim, within 300 feet Of the  Buckhorn shaft. This consists of a  20-foot shaft and a 50-foot open cut in  the side of the Jhili*~e_.posing ^*?'the*=pre'"="  body.  Andrew Laidlaw, who returned today direct to Spokane on his way to  Lead ville, Colo., said before leaving  that a cash payment had been made on  the bond and that the bond was good  until February, 1901. Mr. Laidlaw's  operations in the one camp of Dead-  wood during the past three months has  resulted in the acquiring for his clients the Standard, Marguerite group,  Bengal, Badger, Bristol and the  Moreen.  HAS STARTED ROASTING.  Grand Fcjrks. April 12.���The roasting of ore preliminary to the commencement of smelting operations, was  begun today x at the Granby smelter.  The event is an auspicious and noteworthy one in the history of the  Boundary country. The roast heap  represented a shipment of $40 ore  from the City of Paris mine in Central  camp.

Mr. Martin was'on his feet in a moment. He claimed that the motion  wasout-of order, that his government  was not on trial arid that it was net  what the convention was called for.

That the Liberal conventionVwas a  _niSeraT.fe fiasco instead of being a  dignified meeting of'a. strong political  party, showed conclusively that Joe  Martin had no intention of being  bound, by the finding ,ojf. the,con vention. He. could telegraph Smith Curtis that he was prepared.to accept the  decision of 1he convention, and Mr.  Curtis in his beautiful 'ipnbcence could  in turn endeavor, to secure Martin converts" by eloquently, describing his  leader's eagerness -for self-effacement  in the interests of the 'Liberal' party;  but Joe Martin flirtirlgfor votes and  Joe Martin are two entirely different  individuals. The Liberal convention  had to endorse Joe Martin or dp nothing and it did nothing.'   '*..'.-'. :."- Jt. ���  There is nothing , exceptionally  clever about .turning,;a. meeting-into a  bear garden.

Mining Record c-fpf.}'t��e current  month. There is a wopderful combination responsible, for 'fhe.comments  thatapp'eaf in the. Record'fromttime to  time in reference to. the';niines of this  district. A prej ud iced - ibcal correspondent sends distorted views to a  credulous editor at Victoria, and the  pages of the Record, ares..fi-iled .with  statements that do the mines of this  district a gross injustice. --'The Record  contains-'some untruthful', statements  regarding the closing4 down, 'of the  Winnipeg.' The actiohsi' of Duncan  Mcintosh were known to all thc officers  of his company, and negotiations for  consolidation were 'carri��-I.ori by them  with -the officers of the; Brandon and  Golden Crown in the East. The Record  is equally.astray, when commenting on  the niines; of ' Deadwood camp. The  editor of the '��� /Record" has a constitutional weakness! for lnaking mistakes, and when he is at jthe mercy of  a correspondent animated with a die-  sire to get even with Paul Johnson for  not locating;;his smelter at Midway,  the Record man's danger is greatly  aggravated. : ;^> '--i..:'^ ���:'   y-  ..LABOR TROUBLES ENDED.  ���'; Tlie amicable settlement of the difficulties betweeji. the rnine owners and  miners' in Rossland shows- what sensible men can do In the -way of undoing the;workof unwise and. irresponsible men.

The Quebec^ ��� Copper  Company, Limited; owning the Marguerite and Marguerite fraction clatins  in Deadwood cainp, "is capitalized at  $375,000, divided into 1,500,000 shares  of the par value of 25 cents per share.

There-are six claims in the group���the  Mountain Chief/ Mountain B03., Mountain "Maid, Mountain Dew, Kiti;hener  and Aihambra. They are situated  about a mile south of the Poland China  claim. The most work has been done  on'the Mount_tin chief. On this claim  there are two shafts, some 25 feet in  depth and the other about' 65 feet.  From this shaft ' there is a drift to  within five feet of the other shaft,  making about 135 feet of -work' on  the claim. The ledge is large and  well defined. They have cut through  it 12 feet. ��� Assays have steadily. it -  creased until at the; bottom of the: '65-  fobt shaft they will average $17, mostly  gold, with a little copper. Picked  samples; assayed $135. The, property  has" been worked all winter and the  company -vill continue development.  The claims are all heavily timbered,  and there is plenty of water. There  is also a substantial cabin near a  spring. '-:������������  It is reported that a rich strike has  been made on the Lookout mine and  that the assays are high.

It?has a well'defined ledge,  which has been stripped for about 150  feet. There are two shafts on the  claim. Shaft No. 1 was sunk 1-istyear  and is 20 feet in depth. Shaft No. 2,  in which the strike was made,' is further up the hill on the ledge and on  April 5, at a depth of 15"feetJ- a very  large body of exceedingly rich ore was  opened ��p.  The Carson group, owned by Mr.  Mulholland and Bob/ Allison, consists  of three claims, the Carson, Oro and  Recb. There is about 100 feet of work  done on the ciainis, ;80 feet of- a" tunnel  and a: 20-fbot sha ft;. The ledge is:about  eight feet wide. The lowest assay  ever obtained ran $4, while at theend  of thetunnel they* were as high as$50.  -The Oro, which is on the west end of  the Carson, has.ai little different character of ore, carrying more galena and  copper.

The first annual meeting of the  Greenwood Board of Trade was held  last night at the city hall. In the absence of C. Scott Galloway, the vice-  president, D. A. Cameron occupied the  chair. Secretary R. E. Gosnell presented the report of the council covering the work done by the Board of  Trade since it became an organized  body. It was a lengthy report and was  listened to. with attention, as it covered a host of subjects. The chairman, iu moving the adoption of the report, said: " I think that all the members of the Board of. Trade can congratulate themselves on the work done,  as outlined, during the first year of  the existence of the board. I most  heartily congratulate the secretary.  Through Mr. Gosnell's efforts, assisted  by the president, the board has been  able to do a large amount of work as  the report justly shows." On motion  it was decided to expend the sum of  $100, in. having the report printed,  with other information regarding the  mines of the Boundary district, added.  The* report showed a balance, to the  credit nf the board of $17.  The election of officers for the ensuing term was very spirited, and .resulted as follows: President, C. Scott  Galloway; vice-prasident, D. A. Cameron, and secretary-treasurer, R. E.  Gosnell, all being re-elected. The  council of 8, chosen out ��� of 16 candidates nominated, resulted in a vote in  the following order: Ross, Kerr, Law,  Whitesides, Anderson, Caulfield, Wood  and Keffer.  F. J. Finucane, managerof theBank'  of Montreal, who is shortly to visit  Europe, was made the board's delegate  to the fourth congress of chambers of  commerce of the empire, to be held in  London in June.  The chairman then introduced L. G.  Wolfe, who appeared before the meeting on behalf of R. L. Armit, who proposes building sampling works at  Greenwood. Mr. Wolfe explained at  length the benefits of sampling-works  to a town and district generally. He  siid that it was a helpmate to a smelter  as also to the mine-owner, by being in  a position to purchase different characters of ore, which a smelter would be  unable to do. mixing the same, and  then in turn selling the product to a  smelter. Such a plant helped a district by purchasing small quantities of  ores for cash, which gave the prospector capital to continue development,  which, under other circumstances,  might lie dormant. The reason the  owners of the plant at Nelson proposed  to locate here, if- suitable terms could  be arranged, was on account of the  city's central position in thc Boundary  with the camps surrounding it on aii  sides. He was asked and answered  many questions about lhe proposed  plant and assured the meeting that if  any bonus was granted by the city his  ��company_werei_in_a...posjtion to fuIly  guarantee the performance of any contract they might enter into.  DEATH TO EXILE.  New York, April 12.���Under a Pretoria dispatch to the Herald, giving a  description of the fighting and the  state of feeling in the Transvaal capital a correspondent says: The relief  of Ladysmith and Kimberly and General Cronje's disaster.coming together,  caused the Boers to become panic-  *��? stricken and temporarily abandon  - Bloemfontein. Had Lord Roberts beet-  able to follow up his successes the war  might have been ended now, but the  British reached Bloemfontein utterly  fagged out and recuperation-necessary;  This afforded time for the Boers to  recover, and now the military situation  is nut necessarily more unfavorable  than two months ago. The fainthearted have been weeded from the reserves and the fighting commandos  are now composed of resolute men.  The decision to send the captured  Boers to St. Helena makes it certain  that the Boers will not surrender except in the last extremity. The average burgher prefers death to exile. A  military attache, who is much respected, thinks six mouths the lowest  probable durance of the war. The  Boers will probably continue to fight  even if they lose Pretoria, whicli is unlikely to occur for a long time yet.  LIVES   CRUSHED   OUT.  PiTTSBDRG, April 11.���A 4-story brick  building on the corner of Wood street  and Third avenue, occupied by Armstrong, McElvey & Co., wholesale  paint dealers, collapsed shortly before  10 o'clock this morning. A score or  more people were in the building at  the.time. Three injured and one dead  have been taken out at 10:30 o'clock.  Two others, who could be seen but not  reached, are believed to be dead. At  least 25 more are believed to be still in  the ruins.  Elandslaasrt and Wepner Monopolize  British Attention.  CANADIANS   DOWN    WITH   FEVER  Dr. Ryerson Cables That Eighty of the Boys  Are Sick in tbe Hospital at  Bloemfontein.  London, April 12.���Elandslaagt and  Wepner still monopolize attention. At  both places a series of indecisive actions  are occupying attention. The Boer report of the fighting on the 10th at  Elandslaagt avers that the advance on  the Boer camp was made with a loss of  only three mules and two horses, and  British losses must have been heavy,  as the bombardment lasted all day.  Nothing is learned regarding the  rumor of Colonel Baden-Powell's death  nor is there anything leading to show  how long the general advance towards  Pretoria will be delayed. In the absence of exciting developments public  interest centers upon the personality of  the new commanders and in suppositions as to who the generals to be sent  home will be.  The sailors of the Powerful are coming in for enthusiastic greetings, including those on their arrival at Portsmouth yesterdny, when young and old  women kissed officers and men indiscriminately as they came off the dock.  The Boer announcement of the re-  occupation of Smithfield by the burghers, just received is no news, as the  small British force at that place withdrew after' the Reddersberg affair. It  now appears that General Brabant is  at Alawil north, and that only a portion of his column is at Wepner.  Toronto, April 12.���Dr. Ryerson,  Canadian Red Cross representative  with the Canadian contingents in  South Africa, cables that 80 Canadians  are in the hospital at. Bloemfontein  suffering from an attack of enteric  fever.  DATES M FIXED  Nominations Are May 26���Elections  June 9.  OFFICIAL   ANNOUNCEMENT   MAbE  Martin Says Elections Are Brought on a Week  Earlier to Suit Convenience of Odd  Fellows.  Victoria, April 12.���[Special to The  Times.] ��� The dates officially announced are: Nominations May 26th  and election June 9th. The house  meets on July 5th. Martin explains  that the elections are brought on a  week earlier than intended to suit the  convenience of the Grand Lodge of  Odd Fellows, who are to be in session  on June 15th. This presumably is his  answer to the current rumor that an  imperative message from Ottawa  stirred the lieutenant-governor up.  Much satisfaction is expressed in  Victoria over the announcement from  Ottawa that the government has issued  an ultimatum to Governor Mclnnes,  ordering the latter to either dismiss  Martin or have the elections brought  on at once,  SIR WILFRID AND THE EMPIRE.  Pretoria, April 11.���A heavy cannonading was heard- this morning in  the direction, of Belfontein,   situated  midway between Windberg  and   Bo-  shof, in the Orange Free   State,   and ,  north  of Brandfort.     Advices   from'.  Wepner, where a British force is suf-j  rounded,   say   the   battle    continues.  About  1500 British troops are said to  be   there.     Advices   from   the    Boer  headquarters   in   Natal   say  a heavy  bombardment of the British is setting  in in the direction of Ladysmith, and  the federals are going back to their old  positions.  ABOUT THE WAR.  Ottawa, April 12.---The Canadian  patriotic fund to date amounts to  $236,088.  Naples, April 12.���A Transvaal mission accompanied by Dr. Muller,  started this morning for Milan.  London, April 12.���A special dispatch from Elandslaagt. dated yesterday, says: "Fighting was'renewed  below Elandslaagt this afternoon. The  Boers steadily advanced upon the  British positions. There was a continuous-rifle-fire--andi-^he���Boers!__big1  guns were in action.- The British replied effectively ? and after two hours'  fighting the British were checked."  New York, April 12.���Great Britain  has to a large extent stopped buying  foodstuffs for her army in South Africa  from this country, according to local  steamship agents. " Shipments to  South Africa are now confined almost  exclusively to hay, oats and mules,  with an occassionally larger order for  canned goods," said one of them to-day. " The war department say that  they could get corn and meats quicker  and cheaper from Australia, and since  then the shipments have been dropping off."  Pretoria, April 12.���-The Free State  Gazette publishes an order to the effect  that no person who has been nominated  for active service has the right to send  a substitute without the consent of the  landrost. In reference to the matter  of leave of absence, ihe Gazette says  that squads of 10 per cent of each command will be relieved for periods of  twelve days, their relief being chosen  by ballot. This is intended to meet  the wishes of the burghers desiring to  plant their crops.  Here is a brief clipping -from the  Catholic Register., which should be  perused by everybody, regardless-of  political predilections : "It. would  seem as if Sir Wilfrid had reserved all  his latent force for .the supreme moment which Mr. Bourassa's amendment led to, and the manner in whicli  he discharged the double duty of defending his government's course of  action and of winning the: house to  practical unanimity is the most powerful and eloquent eulogium that could  have been pronounced upon his patriotic and convincing address. The premier of Canada has. passed .through a  trying time; much has been said and  written that for the dignity of. the  country had better never have been  published; the people whom che loves,  and of whom he is the foromost- representative, had been traduced : and  goaded to the verge of rupture; he  himself had been the butt of every so-  called loyalist who thought his pen  sharp enough to indite a venomous  sjuib on the ragged lines of disloyalty.  Like the large, loyal-hearted man that  he is, and as now he is universally admitted to be, he bore all with fortitude  and manly forbearance; he bided his  time, arid when it came it did not find  him wanting."  CANADIANS   AT   BR1DST0WN.  Bridstown, Cape Colony, April 12.���  A column of troops, commanded by  Colonel Drury, late of tne Royal Canadian artillery and mounted infantry,  Yeomanry and Australians, arrived  here this morning. They found the  district traversed orderly and well-  disposed.  Renewed Demands.
