IMPEDED  BY  THE  BOERS  Canadians Are With Him���The Boers  Retire���Treacherous Boer  Farmers.  London, April 26.���A Reuter. correspondent with General Pole-Carew  and General French, wires from Duni-  fontein under date of April 24 as follows: "Ever since Sunday a, Boer  force of. 1,600 with one gun and one  pom-pom has been trying to impede  our progress." He then proceeds to  describe the various mounted bodies,  the Canadians, Roberts' Horse and  French's cavalry time after time engaged the Boers and h eld them wh ile  the infantry and baggage passed: He  says   General Pole-Carew    found    it  aiT  oil  necessac.  flank  to draw (  to   use shells   on   the left  *,Boers evidently  intended  ��� '��� ���i .      .     , . ���  ,_ -     * " ���"'-   "--I'-i  the Boers retreated. The cavalry  pushed around the position of the  Boers above the town, where they  were holding General Arundel in  check. It is reported that 6,000 Boers  passed through the town last night to  avoid General French's attack in the  rear. _  London, April 26.���AU the interest  in the South African war is now centered in the burghers' retreat from the  southern portion of the Orange Free  State and General French's horsemen  and the infantry of. Generals Pole-  Carew, Chermside and Arundel. The  Boers clung to their positions as long  as it was safe to do so, and they have  now slipped off to hold'.the next commanding ridge through a broken country admirably suited for a rear-guard  defense.  News from Aliwal North, under date  of April 25th, says the Boers left  Wepener so hurriedly that many of the  dead were left iu the trenches unburied.  Commandant S.. Cronje is reported to  have been killed.  According to advices from Bloemr  fontein, the attempt of the Boers at  Brandfort to get in touch with the  command at Tabanchu was frustrated  by a force dispatched .by General  Tucker from Glen.  A dispatch from.'Pretoria reports the  arrival there of  unwounded nr-..,  .rd Rosslyn as an  lay  *"\  thrY  tactics! J*.  vance, o>V  delay.    Tj,  r��-  1 ..

In the afternoon the Boers evacuated  their position.  General French's advance cut their  communication north of the town.  The action was fought at Doorkoop.  The Boers retired to the northeast.  They were commanded by Botha and  Dewet. General Arundel, with the  artillery, is pursuing them, while General French is creating a position here.  MM  : ,      7<  !���'      ' ".

CURTIS  Unanimously Endorsed by the  Liberal Association.  THE  PARTY'S CANDIDATE  In  the  Rossland   Ridins.���Delegates  Appointed For the Convention  at Grand Forks.  The candidature of Hon. Smith Curtis was unanimously endorsed by the  40 members of the Liberal association  who attended the meeting held in the  city hall last night. A. K. Stuart,  vice-president of the association, presided. A resolution endorsing Mr.  Curtis met with no opposition, and C.  J. McArthfir, W. S. Keith and J. H.  McFarlane were appointed delegates  to the convention to be held in Grand  Forks on May 2. They were instructed  to vote for Mr. Curtis.  DISALLOW BILLS.  Pretoria, April 26.���A serious explosion occurred last night at the Regi  works, used by the government, as an  arsenal. The neighborhood is a mass  of flames.. The shrieks of women and  children added to the ghastliness of  the scene. Ten workmen were killed  and32 inj ured, includin g Herr Grun-  berg, manager of the works. The  mosi important of the machinery was  saved. The cause of the explosion is  unknown, The works employed 200  persons, mostly French and Italians.  The Red Cross ambulance did" good  work in helping the wounded.

London, April 26.���An official dis.  patch from Mafeking reports all well  on April 10th. .  London, April 26. A special dispatch from Dewetsdorp, dated Saturday, says; -'Owing to the approach of  General French, and to General Arundel's persistent shelling, the Boers.re-  linquished their positions last night,  retiring with their guns in a northeasterly direction." Generals French  and ' Arundel joined hands east of  Dewetdorp this morning. General  Arundel is pursuing the Boers in  forced marches.  London, April 26.���The- arrival of  Mafeking dispatches has reduced the  interest and'anxiety'in regard to the  fate of its defenders. Lady Sarah  "Wilson's account of the slaughter of  33 natives, who went out from Mafeking last Friday to recover some  camels which had been looted by Boers,  and who, while they were sleeping,  were surrounded by the burghers and  shot without quarter, apparently  harshly misrepresented the action of  the Boers. A dispatch receivedby the  Associated Press says the natives in  question were unauthorized raiders,  and that instead of being ruthlessly  slaughtered by the Boers while asleep,  they beat back the burghers, who were  obliged to get reinforcements of Nor-  denfeldts and Maxims. The dispatch  adds: "There was no question of surrender. The leader of the natives  rallied his men to the last, and the  fight progressed fromthe rigin g to;. thje  setting of the sun, until their ammunition was finished, and then the  Boers killed all but one, who hid in the  reeds and escaped."  The correspondent concludes: "Mafeking may be forgiven if it begins to  prefer some attempt 'at relief rather  than empty congratulation for its gallant stand. Though there is only  sufficient to keep body and soul  together, it will never dream of surrender. But it is very, very, weary of  it all."       -  RETURNS TO ENGLAND.  Her Majesty Accorded a Hearty Farewell When  Leaving:.  Dubwn, April 26.���Queen Victoria  and the Princess Christian of Batten-  berg, left the vice regal lodge at noon  and drove to Kingsbridge station on  their way to Kingston and England.  Large crowds at every point of vantage gave her majesty a loyal farewell. The train started for Kingston  at 12:20 amidst the heartiest demonstration. Enormous crowds of people  had gathered at Kingston and occupied  the piers and other places. A memorable demonstration occurred as her  majesty, attended by a brilliant suite,  boarded the yacht, which steamed seaward, ot 1:15 p. m., amid the firing of a  royal salute by the fleet and hearty  and prolonged cheers from the throngs  lining the waterfront.  That Were Aimed Especially Against Japanese  Employment.  Ottawa, April 26.���The Dominion  government has disallowed the following bills passed by the British Columbia legislature in 1899: An act relating to liquor licenses; an act relating  to the Midway and Penticton railway,  and an act amending the coal mines  act. These have been disallowed because of the anti-Japanese clauses in  the bills. The placer mining act,  which it is claimed was aimed directly  at United States citizens has been ve  toed because it is ultra vires. '  Other  ..bi'.s having private clauses in them  [preventing employment of Japanese  which the government has allowed to  pass because they did not wish to interfere with the organization of companies effected. It will be remembered that the Imperial authorities protested against the anti-Japanese legislation shortly after the adoption of  certain measures by the British Columbia legislature, restricting Japanese labor. In 1899 the Dominion authorities appealed to the British Columbia legislature, but up the present time  no action had been taken by them,  hence the decision of the government  to disallow the bills. 7  A CURIO  COLLECTOR.  Toronto, April 26.���J. H. Balmer,  with five South African native boys  aged from 8 to 14, two Basutoes, one  Bushman, one Zulu and one Kaffir,  whbWMrrPalmW'took^"in" their^wild-  state and civilized, arrived here yesterday. . Mr. [Palmer, while not approving of blacks fighting against whites,  thought it would do the Boers good to  let 20,000 Basutos on horseback at  them.  Dewetsdorp,    April    26.���General  French entered this town today   with  two cavalry brigades.    He left   camp  at daylight and found the Boers hold-  i ing the hills.     They were shelled aud  CONTRACT AWARDED.  Port Arthur, Ont., April 26,���Dan  McGillivery of Vancouver has been  awarded the Almota Central contract  for building the ore dock at Michi-  peton.   The dock will cost $200,000.  FOR EXPORT TRADE.  Toronto, April 26.���F. Watt Hew-  son and H. Norton, of London, Eng.,  are in the city. They will visit various  furniture and other wood firms in  Canada, with a view to opening up  export trade with the United Kingdom  through their new warehouses in London. They speak hopefully for the development of this trade if Canadian  makers will adopt special 'designs,  which they will submit, to the English  taste.  THE VOTING STRENGTH.  A recent issue of the Grand Forks  Gazette, gives the total voting strength  of the Rossland riding up to the end of  March as 2,754, of which number it is  claimed for Grand Forks 321 voters ;tnd  Greenwood 262. This fact of a greater  voting strength was heralded far and  wide in the press. R.'E. Gosnell, who  has been looking after the registering  of voters here says that it is inaccurate.  He told the"Times this morning that  the Greenwood figures are over 582.  That the total of 282 votes was an old  one and that he alone has sent in 300  names to Rossland, that jthe Liberal  party in this city have added further to  that list.' He also says that-while the  list is closed voters can get on the  supplementary list up to 10 days before  the election, which takes place on  June 9th.  ��� ���?'��������� tngnmtmama  ViT.% GR^NW66B WEEKLY ^mts.  meekly Zhm$>  PUBLISHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printlns and Putllshlne  Company, Limited.  Bonca-n Ross Editor.  SATURDAY, APRII, 28, 1900  A WEAK POSITION.  Hon. Smith Curtis -has rapidly  acquired the most serious weakness in  a politician���loquacity. The minister  of mines talks too much. He was in  Rossland the other day and gave the  Miner a column interview., Mr. Curtis  endeavored to make out a hopeful case  forthe government and succeeded in  exposing its weakness. Here is a portion of the interview:  The government intends to have  candidates in every constituency  throughout the Province, with the possible exception of Nanaimo city, where  Ralph Smith is a candidate. Mr. Smith  was nominated at a convention held  there the other day, and while he is  not running as a government candidate, he has practically endorsed the  government's platform. He is reported  in the Colonist as stating to the convention with regard to Premier Martin:  " His principles are first class. If Joe  Mai tin gets into power and brings  forward the principles he has laid down  I will support him.  Mr. Curtis should not.have curtailed  Mr. Ralph Smith's remarks. What  Mr. Smith did say was:  His principles (Joe Martin's) are first  class. If Joe Martin gets into power  and brings forward the principles he  has laid down, I will support him. But  I don't think he will get the power,  and if he gets the power I don't think  he will bring them forward.  Mr. Smith is the strongest man  among the labor leaders of the Province. He has lost no occasion to express his want of confidence in Martin.  When Mr. Martin "decides to not oppose  him he acknowledges that Mr. Ralph  Smith as champion of the rights of  the laboring classes is taking thc  proper course in declaring his want of  confidence in the leader of the present  government. The Martin government  should be equally honest in dealing  with the laboring classes in other parts  of the Province. If Mr. Martin is not  entitled to the confidence of the  miners of Nanaimo he cannot be  entitled to the confidence of the  miners of Kootenay. If Mr. Martin  confesses that a strong labor leader  like Ralph Smith has the right to say  that if Joe Martin is elected he (Smith)  does not think he will bring forward  those principles he advocates in his  platform, then Mr. Martin's candidates have no right to the working-  men's votes in Kootenay.  The truth is that Mr. Ralph Smith is  too strong a man to be attacked by the  Martin government. If there were a  ghost of a chance Mr. Martin would  soon have a candidate to oppose him.  But having no possible chance, he  seeks to blindfold the miners of  Kootenay by announcing through his  * min ister-*of ���mines-that- Mr. Smith.is  not to be opposed as a reward for  services in connection with the settlement of the labor difficulties.  OUR BOLD  PREMIER.  This is one of the most interesting  characters of Canadian political life.  What a figure he would have been in  the French revolution. It is not necessary, as it is well nigh impossible, to  pronounce upon the policy of the man.  It is difficult to discover any politics in  the chaos of British Columbia politics  save that of trying to obtain power.  Is there any other m*an in Canada, or  other man in Canada or elsewhere,  who could have done what this man  has done? He was a very prominent  figure in Manitoba politics. It is said  that he saved the Greenway government from defeat in at least one crisis.  He was the fighting man of the cabinet. It is said he fought inside the  cabinet as well as outside. When he  went to Ottawa he made everything  lively there���too lively ' for many.  When Laurier's government was  formed Martin was left out. He went  to British Columbia���a thousand miles  from his former scene of battle. British Columbia was soon in a whirlwind,  out of which emerged Joseph Martin.  Sometimes he was defeated; sometimes victorious. Sometimes he had a  few followers; sometimes hardly any.  He was fighting all the time. Every  one knew he was fighting all the time.  One would imagine, like Henry of  Navarre, he would be a cheerful fighter  with a smile always hovering about  him. He Ss premier at last. ' One wonders .what", would happen if he were to  . y.isit the-maritime provinces in turn,  then Quebec, and finally Ontario. Of  the good or bad qualities of the man  we have nothing to say. But among  the men of the men of the time passing like shadows through life's brief  drama there is ho more unique or picturesque character than Joseph Martin.  One is irresistibly drawn in thought to  Stevenson's character of Alan Breck  crying out in glee, after the bloody  fight, to his companion David : .."Am I  no' a bonny fighter?" ��� Presbyterian  Review.     .__   LIBERAL CONVENTION.  There was a full meeting of the  Liberal association last evening at the  board of trade rooms. There was, as  last week, another large addition to  the membership, the association being  now not only very strong, but thoroughly representative. It was decided,  after some discussion, during which  the matter was well threshed out, to  hold the convention of the Liberal  party of this riding at Grand Forks on  May 2nd. It was tacitly understood at  the convention which was held in 1898  in Rossland, that the next should convene at some point in the Boundary  country, and as Grand Forks, Greenwood and other points of that outlying  part of the riding desired the present  assembly to meet there, the resolution  determining on Grand Forks was carried unanimously. A resolution was  passed striking the name of Dr.  Edward Bowes, who is now stumping  the country in the Conservative interest, off the roll of the association..' It  was also decided that the election of  delegates from Rossland to the convention should take place at the next  regular meeting of the association.  The numberwill depend upon the total  votes in this city, one delegate being  appointed for each 200 and surplus  fraction.���Rossland Miner.  MR. CURTIS AND THE LIBERALS.  .Hon. Smith Curtis has..announced  himself as a candidate in the Rossland  riding. A few short weeks ago he was  anxio.us tha.t- the- Liberals should declare f6r party lines,' but now he states  that they are not stumping the country  as a party, and he is in the field simply  as a supporter of the Martin government. Mr. Curtis' statement has at  least the virtue of being definite. In  the absence of a straight Liberal candidate Liberals are not bound to support- Mr. Curtis. They can remain  loyal to the Liberal party and still vote  against the Martin aggregation.  Since Mr. Curtis by his action has  showed his determination not to be  bound by the decision of the Liberal  convention to be held in Grand Forks  on May 2nd, Liberal associations have  no right to attempt to discipline members into voting for Mr. Curtis. Mr.  Curtis has expressed his independence  of the Liberal party. Liberals ought  to have the right to be equally independent.     .   PARTY LINES.  A good.deal of the starch comes out  of the paper backs of the straight party  lines men as election day approaches.  In Victoria at the outset of the campaign the Conservatives were brave.  They were going to run the election  oh party linespand, after several meetings, they so decided. But one Richard  Hall was a stronger man in Victoria  than any Conservative. At the nominating convention held last night  party lines were discarded and Richard  Hall, a staunch Liberal, received the  nomination in a Conservative convention.  Among the Liberals the courage of  the party men appeared to be also temporary. Hon. Smith Curtis a few weeks  ago was a straight Liberal party man ;  today he is running as a-go-as-you-  please Martin candidate. Then one  Chas. H. Mackintosh, a staunch Conservative, repudiates the Conservative  party, the Conservative platform, and,  although nominated by a Conservative  convention, announces himself as a  non-party lines man.  The truth of the matter is that it  takes more than a few short months to  eradicate the evils of the politics that  obtained heretofore. Power is considered paramont to party, and when  the chances of success are threatened  the politicians are ready to sacrifice  party interests in order to secure votes.  INDIAN FAMINE FUND.  In regard-to the Indian famine fund,  the government of Canada is prepared  to receive any c"��sh contributions and  forward the same by cable to India.  Such moneys should be forwarded to  Mr.*J. M. Courtney, deputy minister of  finance, whoacted as tteasurer in the  case of the "former famine fund, and  who will acknowledge all contributions an* see to their being transferred  with the lea,st .possible delay. Should  any person wish to make contributions  in land towards this worthy object, the  best way to make the gift of service  would be to sell the land and remit the  proceeds to the treasurer. This was  done by farmers of Prince Edward  Island in the case of the former famine  fund. Tl^e chartered banks of Canada  will also receive subscriptions to this  fund, and contributions may be forwarded to any ^branch of any such  banks. His excellency the governor-  general has kindly consented to become a patron of the fund;  THE   MINING  OUTLOOK.  In a new mining district there are  always d.u-11 times in the interval between construction of a railway and  when shipping commences. It takes  time after a railway is completed to  get everything in shipe for shipping.  Smelters must be completed and spur*  to the mines constructed. This period  will soon be over in Boundary. Mr.;  Graves announces that the Granby  smelter is nearing completion, ore is  being roasted there and within the  next few weeks actual smelting will  begin. As the spur to the company's  properties at Phoenix is being built,  there will be no delay in shipping  from this important point.  In Greenwood preparations are being made to rush the completion of the  British Columbia Copper company's  smelter. As soon as this- is done several mines will ship.  THE GOVERNOR'S POSITION.  The Times has received a pamphlet  prepared by Hon. Joseph Martin. It  contains his platform and other interesting matter. The pamphlet is well  prepared and the strongest possible  case is made out for Mr. Martin. At  the end is Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes' letter of dismissal to Charles A,  Semlin. We do not know whether Mr,  Mclnnes authorized the use of his  letter as a campaign document. In  any case its publication in this con  nection forces the governor into active  politics. Mr. Martin had it inserted to  catch votes, and his opponents are  justified in' Criticising both the letter  and its author. Whatever the result  may be, so far as the governor personally is concerned, the dignity of his  high office is lowered.  EDITORIAL  NOTES.  The report comes from Republic that  that town is free from smallpox. It is  likely that the quarantine will be raised  in a few days. .--  W. W. B. McInnes, M. P., has again  denied the report that, he intends en  tering   the    piovincial   -arena.    The  province is to be congratulated.  The Canadian Bank of Commerce  ._  have opened a branch in Seattle, Canadian banks appear to be popular institutions across the line.  John . Houston, mayor of Nelson  and editor of the Tribune, has announced his candidature in the Nelson  ���riding. Mr. Houston is not in favor  of party lines and is running as an independent. He has a stroug following  in Nelson and stands a good chance of  election.  Another candidate may possibly  contest the Rossland riding. At a  mass meeting of workingmen, held in  Rossland." Saturday" nig htr"itr was--decided to hold a convention this week  for the purpose of electing an independent labor candidate.  There are several measures for  loyalty in this country. If the awful  Tarte says anything that savors,of  criticism in connection with the relations between Canada and the empire,  he is at once charged with disloyalty,  but Sir Charles Tupper can go to Quebec and say worse things, and he is a  patriot. .    - .  The News-Advertiser is authority  for the statement that there will be no  supplemental lists of British Columbia  provincial voters this year. This is  stated to be due to the defeat of the  Redistribution bill in which such  clauses would have been provided. In  the absence' of special legislation,  there is no authority to issue the supplemental voters'lists.  F. J. Finucane, manager of the  Bank of Montreal, who leaves for  Europe in a short time, has consented  to represent the Greenwood Board of  Trade at the fourth congress of the  Chambers of Commerce of the empire.  The Greenwood board could not have a  better representative, and is to be congratulated upon the fact that Mr. Finucane has consented to act.  POLITICAL POINTERS.  Lewis Mounce, a Comox sawmill  man, has been nominated to oppose  the Martin government.  F. C. Cotton is in the Kootenay district getting candidates in the field in  the interests of the People's Provincial  party.    J. Roderick Robertson and G. Frank  Beer are in the city.    Mr. Robertson is  general manager of the London and-  British Columbia Gold Fields. Mr.  Beer is���well John Houston says he  and Robertson are politicians.  Hon. Joseph -Martin is .holding meet-;  ings twice aday in the Kootenay .districts. He can give any man in the  province pointers about campaigning.  He doesn't sit down and rant -about  his awful opponent. He gets right  after him and pounds him with big  chunks of very taking platform oratory. -   Ralph Smith will oppose James Dunsmuir in South Nanaimo. The fight  will be a remarkable one. A coal miner  pitted against a millionaire mine  owner. Ralph Smith will win, not  because Dunsmuir's millions are to his  discredit, but because Smith is the  much abler man. After all it is brains  that count.  A report is current that Hon. C. H.  Mackintosh wrote a letter to the president of the Liberal-Conservative association the day after his nomination  strongly objecting to the mine-owners  being asked to defray election expenses, as it might hamper him in  dealing even-handed justice between  all parties concerned. It is further  stated that the. latter counselled a  policy of moderation, and the refraining of any personalities with reference to Hon. Joseph Martin and his  honor the lieutenant-governor,���Rossland Miner. ���  Victoria, B.C., April 24.���[Special  to the Times.]���Dick Hall stampeded  the Conservative nomination convention last night when he was introduced  as a visitor -and made a little speech  expressing his readiness to work with  them for Martin's overthrow, although  not of their faith in general politics.  The convention forthwith put aside  the party lines determination and the  ballot showed 125 votes for Hall,  against 86 for Clive Phillips Woolley,  nominated in his place by the party  line stalwarts. Turner had 165, Helmcken 162, and McPhillips 130 votes, and  the four old members are therefore the  Conservative choice for reelection.  Hon. F. Carter-Cotton was in the city  yesterday and opent most of his time  in close conference with the members  of the Conservative party in this city  in discussing the political situation  and imparting to them his plans. Mr.  Carter-Cotton is on an . organizing  tour for his party, which he calls the  provincial party, and it is his inteh  tion to have candidates in as many of  the ridings as he can.

Ymik, April 23.���This afternoon the  Hon. Joseph Martin addressed a large  meeting of Ymir electors and delivered  a speech upon his political platform  which lasted over two hours, and was  listened to with the greatest attention.  The meeting was held in the Miners',  Union Hall and was attended by a  large number of members of the union,  who received somewhat of a setback  by the evident antagonism existing  between Mr. Martin and Mr. Houston  Mr. Martin's announcement that - he  would rather see an out-and-out Conservative such as Roderick Robertson  elected to this constituency than a man  rjfTjio political principle, such as  John Hou-u6n7^us��_l"nb"littlei consternation in the ranks: of-unionism,  and produced rather severer criticism  of Mr.. Martin's speech than it  would otherwise have met with. The  honorable gentleman laid himself  badly open on one or two occasions,  He remarked that the forthcoming  election-would be decided less on the  personal merits of the candidates and  more on their platforms than at any  previous election, and that a man not  a good man, but with a good platform,  would have more chance of success  than . heretofore. The inference was  that he based his own chances of success upon this consideration. The announcement of the philanthropy of his  motives which induced him to enter  politics to his own personal detriment  and financial loss, was also accepted  wijth some litfle amusement not over  flattering to the speaker.���Nelson  Miner.  1 NEWS OF THE RAILS AND WIRES |  * ��� ������ ��� *  **$��a*����#ett#6**##��#tt��#��_).����  H.

Molson is its.  name, and it is located on Baker creek;  one mile south of the International  boundary line and about 'five miles  west,'of Chesaw, on the Chesaw-Oro  wagon road. George IJ.

Regarding the new townsite; he said:  "My. company has in the neighborhood of Sidley's lake and along Baker  creek a large group of claims, on which  we are working 22 men. We have laid  out six blocks, each 300 feet in length.  The-main street is 100 feet in width.  Along this street building operations  have, already started. ��� At: the presen t  time carpenters, are building a general  store, restaurant, saloon, two' residences and a temporary hotel- The  company has:also*built awagon road  from the Poland China and Mountain  View mines, a 'little over three miles,  in to: Molson.

C, April 24.���-The  state department has received through  Lloyd Griscom, the United States  charge-de-aifairs at Constantinople,  the Turkish government's, answer  touching the American- missionaries  claims. It is gathered that the very  brief outline of' the' Turkish response  cabled from Constantinople to the  effect that : the 'American ��� claimants  must tajke their position along with  those of other nations, do not convey  accurately the tenor of the whole noifce,  though it is admitted; that it does set  out clearly one portion of it. The  opinion prevails in diplomatic circles"  here.that,.assuming that the Turkish  government has insisted" oh including  the Americans claim with the others*,  it has played a diplomatic card of some  strength, as it places the United.States  inaposition of seeking to extort better terms from the Turks than are to  be accorded.to the claimants of other  nat ion's."*.' The state"department has  determined not to abandon the: preferential' position ^respecting its claims  that it haslsecured through the Sultanas  o\y ri promises," so it is anticipated ih at  an.,energetic; response to this last note  will be sent to the porte through Mr.  Griscom. ��� .

The road  from Greenwood to Chesaw passes  through a country that for wealth of  scenic grandeur is unsurpassed. On  Saturday last F.' J. E'inucane, Mr.  Fraser* -a mining main, representing  English capital, G'eorge R. Naden,  James Kerr and Duncan Ross, left the  Boundary metropolis for that? of the  Myers Creek country. By the time  Rock Creek was reached the conclusion  was arrived at that nature had crowded  every possible scenic beauty into the  Kettle River valley. A good dinner at  Sam Larsen's and a sharp turn of the  road southward towards the Colville  reservation materially alters one's  opinion; There is no limit to nature's  panorama. The Chesaw road leaves  the main highway half a mile above  I<arsen's hotel. It ascends a steep  hill and then the valley of Myers creek  is revealed. Dotted with farms under  cultivation, enclosed by grass-covered  rolling hills, while in front is the majestic snow-capped Mount Bonaparte,  the valley drives away all thought of  ledges and mines', and leaves one  wondering at lhe agricultural possibilities of the Colville reservation,  which is shortly to be thrown open for  settlement.  . To get to Chesaw one .has to pass  through Bolster. From. a Chesaw  point of view this is a distinct disadvantage. No secret is disclosed when  the statement is made that there is  considerable -rivalry between the two  towns.- Situated within a mile of each  other, they-remind one forcibly of the,  good old days when Greenwood and  Anaconda, used to'fight for supremacy.  Both townsites are perfect, both have  enterprising, citizens who aire thoroughly well acquainted with the weaknesses  and shortcomings of their rivals. At  Bolster the unsophisticated travelers  were cautioned against; using Chesaw  whisky, because it was rank, and  against Chesaw water because it con-  taine everything bad from alkali  down. Now bad whisky and worse  water have no terrors for a Greenwood  man. The former he never drinks,  and he is so accustomed to the latter  that he is impervious to its bad effects.  Chesaw was .reached and it was found  to be a lively little town. ��� Good accommodation was found at the Hotel  Baxter. The travelers soon found  that reports from. Bolster were greatly  exaggerated. Nothing can be purer  than the water of Mary Ann creek,  and we had reasonable assurance from  those who tasted Chesaw whisky that  that it was not at all bad.  Everybody was, in Chesaw on Saturday. The miners were holding their  annual meeting and everybody else  went to the meeting to show their in-  erest^inthe-minersr^The-log "school  house was filled with patriotic enthusiasts anxious to promote the interests  of Chesaw in particular and generally  those of the Great Republic.  The future of Bolster and Chesaw  must necessarily depend on the mines  in the immediate vicinity. As has  already; been stated, Myers Greek  valley has large agricultural: possibilities, but for- the making of towns,  mines are preferable, to farms. It is  reasonable to suppose that if the  Myers Creek country meets the expectations, Bolster and Chesaw will come  together making one town.  MINING POSSIBIWTlBS.  Lack of space prevents an extended  reference to the mines. The Review  was visited and it certainly is a re  markable property. A vein of rich ore  lies between two as well defined walls  as can be found anywhere. A 400-fobt  tunnel follows this vein the entire distance. From ' this tunnel a winze has  been sunk 65 feet and a drift run on  the vein parallel, with the tunnel7 The  values are remarkably high, the latest  secured being $674.48 in gold from the  lower level and $241.17 from the upper  level. Near the Review is the property  of the Lone Star company. The  Crystal Butte company have also "done  large amount of work on their pro-  On the eastern slope is a  camp of large ledges and good  treatment. Sixteen men are at present  employed on the property. The property has been developed to a depth of  125 feet. Close at hand is the property  of the Mountain Chief company in  which Greenwood capitalists are  largely interested..  ��� Properties of such promise justify a  town, and M*7 Meacham's company  has made ample provision. Situated  on a beautiful sheet of water known as  Sidley lake, in the center of what is sure  to become a rich agricultural section,  the town of Molson has been started.  Molson is only about three miles from  the Poland China, and is still nearer  to the numerous promising properties  on Baker creek. The reservation will  probably be thrown open for settlement in June, and then there is sure  to be a great rush to this district.  Although on the American side, Molson  is only three and one-half miles from  the survey of the C. P. Railway. A  good road is being built from Molson  down Baker creek to Rock creek.  The location of Molson is excellent.  It is convenient to a rich agricultural  section on the Canadian side, and it is  d.stinedto be a mining and agricultural  center on the reservation.  Going back to Myers creek, it may  be noted that both Chesaw and Bolster  are to have newspapers. Fred J. Fine  is arranging to publish a weekly in  Chesaw, and John Haggerty, a Sound  newspaper man. will tell an anxious  world about the advantages of Bolster.  KETTLE RIVER MINING DIVISION.  Alex.

THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.  GONE TO THE MRS  WORK   TRAIN   LEFT  LAST  NIGHT  Have Finlslied the Deadwood Spur���Will Proceed With the Smelter Spur at the Forks  and Then Return to Finish the Line Into  Phoenix���Other Transportation Notes.  Immediately after the men had com  in from work last evening after finishing up "ballasting on the Deadwood  spur, orders came from Trail to remove the construction train the same  night down to Grand Forks, where the  men started work this morning in laying the rails for the spur from that  point to the Granby smelter. It is expected that it will take fully a week to'  finish Lhe spur, when the whole outfit  will be removed to Hartford junction  to finish the laying of steel into Phoenix, and to the several mines in that  camp, and to the Golden Crown and  Winnipeg mines in  Wellington camp.  Again Midway will be disappinted,  as it had been given out that the balance of the main line between here  and the terminus would be ballasted  just as soon as the Deadwood branch  was finished up. It is evident that  great pressure was brought to bear on  the construction, department by Jay P.  Graves on behalf of his various mining companies and the Granby smelter, so that the sub-spurs to -the  mines around iPhoenix should be  built, as now that roasting of ore at  the smelter has started it is necessary  to keep it going, and this can be the  more easily done by hauling ore from  the Phoenix mines.  1 NEWS OF THE RAILS AND WIRES %���  nt ������������������*  *>#*#*>**####*##*#�����*��-��###*���**#  Carpenters are now building a  freight depot at Eholt.  At the local freight depot an addition has been added for the storage of  bonded freight.  Three cars of Cariboo concentrates  arrived here yesterday on the way to  the Trail smelter.  The surveyors are still at work locating the line for the electric tramway between here and Phoenix.  It is reported that the Northern Pacific surveyors have crossed the Columbia river and are working up the  Okanogan river.  Work is to be started at once on a  series of large cold storage bunkers at  this point. The first bins to be built'  will have a capacity of 400 tons of fuel.  Notwithstanding Mayor Goodeve's  remarks at a certain political pow-wow  that "prominent and reliable engineers" had told him it would be utterly  impossible to build a through line  between the Boundary district and the  Coast, it is apparent that the C. P. R.  engineers think otherwise. The ques-,  tion is: Is the shortest, most economical and most feasible route through the  Similkameen?. This section is going  to have railroad facilities in the near  future, and when there is tonnage to  be obtained politics do not count.  This morning a boarding car and a  gang of men were brought down to  Midway, says the Advance. The men  are to at once start fencing the railway  Jlne.posts for which worlc are novy-be-  ing distributed along the line. It is  stated that about forty men will be  employed and that the work will be  done from both ends.  no grade on this street, letter was filed;  and from Paulson & Swan of Rossland  asking for payment of their account,  in re Rendell vs. the city. City Solicitor Leamy reported that the account  had already been settled. ���  NUISANCE GROUNDS.  Alderman Galloway, chairman of  the scavenger committed, reported  that he had inspected the nuisance  grounds and found, though efforts had  been made to clean the same up, they  were still in a deplorable condition.  He had asked the scavenger for an estimate of the probable cost of cleaning  the whole grounds up, and he had  figured it at $40. It was agreed to have  this work done at once and the city  scavenger was so notified.  STREET GRADES.  City Engineer Charles F. Alston  sent two reports and elaborate tracings  to the council. for their consideration  on street grades. After examining  the tracings and discussing the reports  it was decided to leave the matter in  the hands of the street committee and  the city engineer for further action,  and to report at the next meeting. The  engineer was also instructed to prepare a correct map of the townsite.  THE   TRAMWAY.  In connection with the request of  the Greenwood and Phoenix Tramway company, for an additional three  months to complete the construction,  City Solicitor L.eamy advised the council that it was not necessary to make  any resolution for this purpose, as the  agreement between the company and  the city did not prohibit such an extension. The matter was left in abeyance.  BOUNDARY AVENUE.  The cutting of the hill on Boundary  avenue was referred to the street committee with power to act.'  Alderman Sullivan gave notice of  the introduction of a rate bylaw.  Council then adjourned.  BOARD OF TRADE.  ���xt* '  F* J. Finucane, manager of the  Bank of Montreal, has accepted the appointment of delegate for the Greenwood board of trade at the fourth congress of the Chambers of Congress of  the Empire,, to be held in London,  England, June 26th to 29th. His credentials will-be forwarded to the secretary today. The resolutions of the  local board of trade to be submitted by  the delegate at the .congress will be  taken up. this afternoon by. special  committee appointed for that purpose.  AT  THE  SMELTER  Orders have been issued from the  general offices of the Northern Pacific  that no passes will be good on the  North Coast Eimited overland train  to be inaugurated between St. Paul  and Seattle next Sunday. Neither  limited, annual nor trip passes will be  recognized, and when presented conductors have been instructed to refuse  them and collect full fare. The only,  exception to this rule will be with the  higher officials of the road.  THE CITY COUNCIL.  Only a short session was found  necessary to transact the city's business last night. All the aldermen were  present. The proposition of the city  to the Slocan Ore Purchasing company  to induce it to remove the sampler  from Nelson to this city was declined  with thanks, and as the board did not  feel inclined to offer any cash bonus  for the undertaking, the matter is now  dead.  A move was started to have a regular grade established ;by the city engineer submitting reports and tracings  of the streets. This is now in the  hands of the street committee, and the  the members, with the engineer, will  personally inspect the grades and alterations proposed. After reading the  minutes, the proceedings were as follows :  COMMUNICATIONS.  Communications were read from R.  h. Armit, on behalf of the Slocan Ore  Purchasing company, declining the  proposition of the city for a bonus to  erect a sampler here; from T. M.  Gulley, asking for a grade on Skylark  street for retaining wall.   As there is  liberated the prisoner. The police are  making every effort towards recapturing Kelly,, as well as securing evidence  to arrest the party who assisted in his  escape. Kelly's case is the first, break  from the city jail.  COMES UP TODAY.  ConstantinopI/E, April 26. ��� The  negotiations between the United States  and the Porte regarding the American  indemnity claims have again, been  transferred here. The United States  charge d'affairs, Griscom, yesterday  handed to Tewfik Pasha, minister of  foreign affairs, a note based upon instructions he had received from Washington, the tenor of which has not yet  been made public. It is understood,  however, that it demands prompt payment of the indemnity. The note will  be discussed at the council of ministers  today.  THE MEN BEHIND THE MINE  ���   AND SMEI/TER.  %��'#<I4m^  FIFTY-FIVE    MEN   ARE   WORKIMC  Timbers Belne Framed for the Upper and  Lower Ore Bins���Work on the Big Smoke  Flue���The Sampler Building is Started.  Fifty-five men are on the payroll of  the smelter department of the British;  Columbia Copper company. This will  be about the force necessary to carry  on the building of the smelter for some  weeks to come. This morning in company with Assistant Superintendent R.  I_/iden, a Times representative was  shoVn over the work now, in progress.  Large quantities of timber, brick and  lime is being hauled to the smelter site  for immediate use. Carpenters aie  framing timbers for the sampler and  also for the upper and lower ore bins.  The~bigfiue~is" rapidly "nearing^com--  pletion. The solid stone masonry  work should be finished by the end of  the week. Then the dust flue must be  covered in by an arch brick roof. The  flue is 600 feet in length and it will  take time to finish this work. Instead  of erecting a brick smokestack a  metal one 75 feet in height will be used.  Work has also started on the construction of the upper trestle from the  railroad spur extending over the ore-  bins, of which there are- six, each  being 25x50 feet in size. Immediately  below these bins is the sampler, the  foundations for which have been cut  out.  The boiler and blower house has  been finished and the metal roof is all  in place.  Paul Johnson's private residence is  now in the hands of the painters.  They are putting on the outside coating and finishing the interior work.  The assay and laboratory office building is still in the hands of the carpenters. Roads from the smelter and  from town have been made to these  two houses, and the grounds surrounding same are being laid out.  Paul Johnson is expected back from  Spokane on this afternoon's train.  "FLEW DE COOP."  E. Kelly, who was committed for  trial for stealing* two caddies of tobacco from a C. P. R. freight shed,  and who was to have been taken today  to Kamloops, escaped from the city  jail last night and has not been recaptured. How he got out is a mystery,  the police having locked him in the  cell last night and this morning found  the ceil still locked but their prisoner  gone. The theory advanced is that he  had a confederate, who, knowing where  the key for the lock-up was kept,  secured it some time last night and  Greenwood is naturally interested in  the men behind the British Columbia  Copper company, owning the Mother  Eode mine in Deadwood camp, and  who are building the big smelter in  the city. A recent number of the Commercial and Financial World of New  York has an article dealing with the  enterprises of this company, and states  that the officers of the company are  among the prominent financial men in  New York. It says: " The officers of  the company, it is proper to add, are as  follows: Harry L,. Horton, president;  C. E. Laidlaw, treasurer, and Charles  E. Morris, secretary. Directors���  Frank L- Underwood, Paul Babcock,  C. E. Laidlaw, Harry L. Horton and  J. F. Tichenor.  President Horton is one of our best  known bankers and brokers and head  of thc stock exchange house of H. L.  Horton & Co., of 66 Broadway. He is  one of the veterans of Wall street, his  experience covering a period of about  40 years. He has been a member of  the New York Stock Exchange since  X8&9. He is treasurer and director of  the Staten Island Water Supply company, director of the Staten Island  Rapid Transit company, etc., etc. The  fact that he is identified with this copper mining enterprise is a sufficient indication of its solidity.  Treasurer Laidlaw is a member of  the well known banking firm of Laidlaw & Co., and he, also, stands very  high in financial circles."  It means much for Greenwood and  the district that the company who  own one of the largest mines and who  are constructing the smelter should be  men of such high financial standing.  PLACING  THE   BLAME  WHERE  IT  BELONGS..  . The British Empire Review (London,  Eng.), referring to the racial unrest  which has been so assiduously fostered by unscrupulous Tory politicians  for party ends, declares in an issue  just to hand : " The real source of an  actual hostility to British connection  in French Canada rests with a number  ol European Frenchmen, who have  obtained control of a portion of the  Qi-ebec press, and who are perfectly  reckless as to the amount of discord  which they may succeed in spreading  among their neighbors. We fear,  however^^nd'the vie^^i^one^whicK"  has been pressed upon us by well-  informed Canadian correspondents���  that a section of the British population has not hesitated to utilize the  materials of race antagonism for  purely partisan ends by bringing  against the French-Canadians a general charge of disloyalty. Englishmen at home, it is certain, find something more than difficulty in regarding  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, whose popularity  in this country is exceptional, in such  a character, which they would dismiss  summarily as a mere caricature; and  it is evident to the friendly looker-on  that if. Canada is to maintain her  position both as a great 'power in the  west' of the empire arid as a 'great  power in the noith' of the American  continent, the time has come for all  her patriotic sons of whatever origin  to close their ranks, and by a common  effort to make renunciation of those  disintegrating elements which threaten  otherwise to prove fatal to the realization of her ideal as a united  nation."  ##*#��#j!-$��.!.$#.-.��.!.##ig.#.!tft#6#^ -  *-fp i ��)EADWOOD, the latest to-wn to seek public favor? is situated in. the heart  pf Deadwood Gamp, about three miles from Greenwood, arid an equal  distance from the B. C, Copper company's smelter. It is reached by a  spur of the Columbia and Western railway. It is. surrounded by such  famous mines as the Mother t Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn, and Morrison,  which of themselves assure a Large Payroll,1 but exclusive of these there  are a hundred partially developed properties surrounding the town,  many of which will become paying mines, so that it does not require  very much foresight to decide that the Town of Deadwood will have in  the near future a sufficiently large payroll to support a city of some im-v  portance.
