The  deceased was manager for the Russell  Hardware company. The"particulars  of the affair were described to a Times  man yesterday by Mrs. Haertel at the  National, where she is now staying.  She said: " Ivty husband had not been  working since Thursday. On Saturday he got up about noon and was ab?  sent until late in the afternoon. He  spent the afternoon at the Palace hotel  in Anaconda. When he came home  shortly before six he was the worse for  liquor. -. He left the rooms and w\_nt  down-to the store. At lhe store he procured a revolver, loaded it and came  home. He went upstairs to his bedroom. I was downstairs. He called to  me that he wanted to talk to me. He  .spoke in a desperate manner,-saying if  I wanted a parting kiss I had better  come upstairs. I called to my sister,  Miss Barber, and a friend, G. A. Robinson, and the three of us went upstairs. He was.in his bedroom and the  door was locked. lie then opened the  door part way aiid looked out. I told  him if he would promise not to do any  harm to himself or mc I would go in.  He replied by saying, "I am not going  to do any harm.'' When he noticed  Mr. Robinson he motioned him away,  saying he would, pull his gun. I got  frightened and went downstairs and  hid, and Hans started to come after  me. He pointed his gun at the other  two and told them to get. He returned  to his room and before they were half  way down stairs they heard, a shot.  I did not hear any noise and did not go  up. Afterwards I was ^informed that  he had killed himself." Mr. Robinson  corroborated the story, and said when  he heard the shot he went out for assistance, and with Mr. Smith went up  to the bedroom, where they found Mr.  Haertel laying across the bed dead,  with a bullet hole through his head.  Dr. Jakes was duly- notified of the  shooting. This morning instructions  came that no inquest would be held.  The body is now at Gully TBros. & Co  undertaking department, and will be  prepared for shipment to .Milwaukee,  where the parents of the deceased live.  The .remains will, be accompanied east  ���tomorrow by Mrs. Haertel. Deceased  was 39 years of age. He was married  ten months ago and came here last December from Rossland; where he had  been employed for four years with the  Hunter Brothers company. His father,  mother and three sisters are living in  Milwaukee. He was a member of the  Rossland=3-lrie_of_Eagles.___=:The-_rev_oi__  ver that he used to end his life was a  38-calibre Smith & Wesson.

The treasurer of the; fund is BJ. Chandler Walker, presidehtof Hiraitn Walker  & Sons, I/td. His name is sufficient  guarantee of bona fides in every part of  the Dominion. Mr. Robins writes particularly in reference to an' address  which he delivered at the opera house  at Windsor and which has since been  published in book form. The subject  of the address was.

EHOi/r, April 3.���(Spacial to the  Times.)���Business is improving rapidly these days. The warm weather  is clearing away the snow and the  prospector is preparing to go into the  hills. Jack Hanly, one of the best  known mine managers in Washington,  has been here for the past few days  and has started work with a small  force of men on the Delamare, just  north of town. He is authority for  the statement that work will shortly be  resumed on the R. Bell, owned by Salt  Lake parties, and on the Remington.  The Tiger has also resumed work. It  is said that Andrew I��aidlaw of Spokane has obtained a bond on the Cor-  dick.  The office of the Nelson and Fort  Sheppard railway land department at  Rossland has been shifted from Columbia avenue east' to Third avenue  and Washington street. A cosy struc-  tm e, 20 by 30 feet has been erected.  This will, in the future, be the "headquarters for Arthur Gunn, the land  commissioner; E. Charles, the land  agent, and W. H.

He said that a plant such as he  proposed to erect of 250 tons daily capacity would employ- from 1Q7 to 15  men. He did not want a cash bonus  for coming in, but more of a guarantee  to insure the cost of the removal of the  same to this point. All the aldermen  favored having such a plant, exfected.  here, if any reasonable proposition  could be arrived at with M-. Armit. -A  committee, composed of Aldermen  Sharpe, Sullivan and Bannerrttanwere  appointed to investigate the matter by  getting the opinion of prominent mining men as to the benefits to be derived.

Uleekly ��ime$*  ^UBLISHEIX.BY .  ..������-... _.--.._-....  *    .... wood Times Printing and Publishing  Company, Limited.  \_ .-. Ross .:...... Editor";  SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1900  RELIEF   OF   MAFEKING.  The relief of Mafeking! This is  the one subject which exercises the  minds of the military critics just now.  If any of our readers will look at a  map they will see that Mafeking,  which lies 223 miles by rail clue north  of Kimberly, is still a very dangerous  outpost on the line of our northern  communication. Unlike Kimberly, it  commands the very heart of the  enemy's country, so to speak, lying oft"  the center of their western frontier,  and within comparatively short striking distance of Pretoria; hence its  danger both, to them and us. Now'-to  a rapidly moving body of troop's,  working on " interior lines," nothing  were easier than to" isolate, and if not  in very large numbers to annihilate,  any force that may be sent to relieve  Mafeking. The enemy working always froni . Pretoria, like radii from  center of circle, has his own communications secured���we have ours' to maintain over some 400 miles of railway  north of Kimberlv, in which Mafeking  lies about half way.  If, therefore, we send a small force  north from Fourteen Streams, our  northern outpost as yet, this body  runs the risk of being cut off en route.  If we sent a large force, it would have  to be in such overwhelming numbers  as to prevent this, i' e., to be able^to  hold their own rear for '200 miles, and  also to insure our not finding another  Ladysmith away far from help on  our northwestern frontier.  At any rate, we may be quite certain  the Boers will do all they can to prevent its relief. The only hope for  Mafeking would seem to be in a move  north by Roberts from Bloemfouteiu.  This would instantly detach Boer troops  from that quarter, aud perhaps enable  Methuen to stretch out over that 200-odd  miles and relieve the heroic defender,  Baden-Powell, with his sorely pressed  garrison.  With regard to Roberts himself, v,'e  may expect him to remain in Bloem-  fonrein until, iu the first place, he has  secured his own rear; and to this end  it will be noticed that Clements, on  his southwest, at Fauresmith, and  Ca-atacre,' in the southeast, at Spring-  foutein and Springfield, are gradually  closing in towards their chief; and, in  the second place, until his admirably  worded proclamation to the Free  Staters has had the effect of withdrawing from the federal forces,  especially those in his immediate advance, all who have been waiting to  see on which side of the wall it were  best to fall.  When Roberts does move, we presume Kroonstadt, which lies 128 miles  northeast of his present position,;on  the___nain = line to^JPretoria, .will be'Tiis  immediate objective; and when he  moves he will move * very rapidly and strike heavily. Kroonstadt is apparently fortified, and Presidents Kruger and Steyn have been  there, for some time superintending  matters. Thus it will be seen, the  general commanding is moving on in  the shape of an arc, or half moon.  He himself is in the center. Buller  and Methuen are the extremities. As  he moves forward we may expect theni  to continue to' move' east.and west to  support him. But meanwhile, since  the general wisely keeps all his plans  to himself, we may have to wait some  little time before the last of our three  beleaguered towns is relieved.  laws were published in the Grand  Forks Gazette and they troubled Editor Nesbitt. He got out his case arid  oiled up his old jobber and issued  another-edition- of ��� the Columbia Review. The space was devoted chiefly  to the iiuin ici pal by-laws and the absurdity-, .of the. city endeavoring  to borrow so. muh money. There  was nothing in the articles  to which objection could be taken,  excepting that they told the truth���a  weakness which seldom troubles Editor  Nesbitt. Some one has said that " he  that makes truth disagreeable commits  Viigh treason against virtue." So the  good people of Columbia thought.  Editor Nesbitt was arrested and thrown  into jail. He was brought up before  Justices McCallum and Henderson and  arraigned on a charge of defamatory  libel' on the city of Columbia. The  prosecution asked for eight days to  prepare a case, and this was granted.  Nesbitt was released, bail to the  amount of $3,000 having been furnished by his friends.  If -the people of Columbia were  anxious to convince the public that the  Review's statements were justifiable,  they have taken the proper course. It  is a sad commentary on the merits of  a city if a newspaper man must be  thrown into jail because he criticises  certain by-laws. Few people would  have seen the Columbia Review. The  fact that its editor has been arrested  will be heralded all over the country,  and financial men are apt to draw their  own conclusions.  common people against the corporations, while bad Liberal lawyers like  E. V. Bodwell, Colonel Gregory and  E. P. Davis, accepted'retainers'from  Mackenzie, Mann. & Co._ to lobby  in the legislature. Joe Martin  wouldn't do anything of the kind.  He would refuse business from a railway comoany rather than have it appear that he was not the champion of  the common people. Joe Martin, on  the stump is one thing and Joe Martin  as he really is is another. Joe Martin  on the stump is a good Liberal, avvarm  admirer of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the  enemy of corporations and the champion of the people's rights. Joe Martin as he really is, lost no opportunity  to knife the Liberal party; accepted a  fat fee from the C. P. R. to secure a  fat subsidy for the Crow's Nest railway, and used whatever influence he  had in the legislature to defeat legislation giving the people the right to  exercise their franchise. The Liberal  lawyers, whom he denounces, accepted  legitimate legal-business. Joe Martin  accepted a fee for work of a similar  nature, and it is a peculiar code of professional ethics that allows him to  make political capital out of the professional services rendered by the members of the profession to which he. belongs.        __   A TALKING AGENT,    ..  meet the requirements in Greenwood.

A court of revision to deal with the  voters' list for the Rossland riding  will be held in _Rossland, May 7. AU  those who have not, registered should  do so iihm'ediately.  The more industries that can be established in or around Greenwood the  better it will be for the city. The  erection ,of sampling works will not  only directly benefit the city by employing labor, but will be the means  of helping to open up the mining resources of the district. The more  mines under development the greater  the benefit to the merchant. Greenwood wants such enterprises established in its midst and proper inducements should be made to obtain same.  THE SIMILKAMEEN.  J.  JStEAI..  J. WATT  MARTIN   AND   THE   LIBERALS.  A COLUMBIA INCIDENT.  Strange things do sometimes happen  in this country of ours. A government representing the people can be  dismissed aud one representing the  lieutenant-governor substituted. A  few people of Columbia last week determined that they would go the governor one better, and show that this is  no country of free speech, and that the  liberty about which we boast is a  blooming farce. One R W. Nesbitt  lives in Columbia. He is the erstwhile  publisher and editor of the ^Columbia  Review, a. journal which during its  brief but eventful career devoted all  its energies to telling about the strong  points of Columbia and the weak points  ot its prominent citizens. The latter  occupation kept Nesbitt so busy that  he got tired a short time ago and took  a n_st While he was enjoying his  well-earned' holiday the municipal  cour.cil assessed by-laws authorizing  the borrowing of some S50.000 for  municipal improvements.     These by-  Coast papers to hand contain lengthy  reports of the speech delivered bj-Hon.  Joseph Martin in opening the political  campaign at Victoria last Tuesday. It  was a speech characteristic of Joseph  Martin, a denunciation of those who  refused to be led by him, andyk demagogic appeal to class prejudice. Mr.  Martin occupied the greater portion of  fiis time in denouncing the leaders of  the Liberal party in this Province.  Those who were read out of the party  by this self-appointed leader were  Senator Templeman, E. V. Bowdell,  Colonel Gregory and. E. P. Davies.  These men had to be execrated because  they refused to wreck the party by an  endorsation of Joseph Martin.  Senator Templeman is one of the  oldest Liberals in the Province. He  fought the battles of the Liberal party  for several years almost single-handed.  He was the standard bearer for the  part}r at Victoria when to be a Liberal  candidate was punished by a forfeit of  the deposit. He has made many sacrifices in' the interests' of the party,  and his appointment as senator by Sir  Wilfrid Laurier 'was but a slight recognition of the valuable services which  he gave the party. He has also been a  champion,of sound Liberal principles  and is accepted by the Ottawa Liberals  as the leader of the Liberal party in  the Province.  E. V. Bodwell, Q. C, has occupied  a prominent place at the bar of the  province for the past ten years and he  has placed his great ability at the dis.  posal of the Liberal party . when there  -was.^ijLfigWmg^to^e^ne.^^JBod-  well caiiie from a Liberal fainily, who  mads many sacrifices in the interests  of the 'cause, and he is not the man  who is likely to do anything prejudicial to the Liberal party.  Lieutenant-Colonel Gregory has been  a Liberal candidate in Victoria several  times and has always been identified  with the Liberal party. He is a  prominent lawyer of the capital.  E. P. Davies, Q. C, of Vancouver,  has been one of the leading Liberals  of the Terminal City for several years.  He has never lost an, opportunity to  promote the interests of the party.  The Ottawa government, appreciating  his ability and his services to thc  party, offered him the chief justiceship when chat position was vacant.  These men are among the leaders of  the Liberal party and they will not  endorse Joe Martin, because they are  anxious that the party should not be  wrecked. Mr. Martin can secure the  support of irresponsible persons who  care little about the consequences, but  men possessing intelligence and a  modicum of common sense will have  nothing to do with him.  MARTIN. AND  THE -LIBERAL  LAWYERS.  Joseph Martin is developing into as  biga hypocrite as the Vancouver World  The world has sacrificed its politics  whenever called upon, in order to be  with the party in power. It would  have sacrificed principle, but it never  had any to sacrifice. The support of  the world is having its baneful effect  on Martin. Heretofore hypocrisy was  not considered one of his vices. But  at the .Victoria meeting we find him  shouting that he always stood by the  One W. J. Twiss, an insurance  agent who makes Kaslo his headquarters, has been talking to a Nelson Tribune reporter. He imparted the very  interesting information that lie had  intended opening an office in Greenwood but found "things all cut up and  everything overdone." We feel sorry  for Mr. Twiss. A man coming from  Kaslo is sure, to be disappointed.  Greenwood is an up-to-date business  town. The business men here are en-:  terprisiug and energetic and enjoy  keen competition. When a slow-going  man comes to Greenwood from a slow*  going-town, he finds it impossible tp  compete with brighter local meir, and  he goes home disgusted. He thinks a  town is overdone when the real trouble  is that he himself is underdone. He attempts to make the city responsible  for his own failure. This is a common practice, but an . unprofitable one.  MARTIN   AND   THE   LIBERAL S  It is evident that whatever may be  the result of the convention at Vancouver, the Liberal party '.will be  broken into factious, because of Martin's assumption of the provincial  leadership. Martin is not the man  who will step down and out if the Vancouver convention is against him.  neither will a large body of Liberals  follow him. The unfortunate condition of affairs within the party is  mainly due to the foolish action of the  governor in calling upon Martin, who  in turn announces'himself as the leader  of the Liberal party., Martin^ can  never be the leader of a united Liberal  party in this province, and the only  hope for the party lies in turning him  down. If the Liberals who take  part in the Vancouver convention have  the interests of the party at heart they  _will.do_this.__7I_fJ:_hey.wish_to wreck.the  party they will endorse Joe Martin as  their leader, .  MARTIN'S  OBJECT.-.  The latest appointment to the .Martin cabinet lends color to the view that  Joe Martin, with the cunning of a  Machiavel, has adopted a unique  method of wrecking the Liberal party  in this province, and that his only object since being called upon by'the lieutenant-governor is to bring discredit  upon the Liberals. That he is succeeding to a very large extent is apparent to everyone. The latest acquisition to-the cabinet is more of an unknown than George Washington  Beebe. Beebe's bucolic proclivities  were allowed to shine at meetings of  the horticultural board, but. history  does not tell us that Ryder-even belonged to a debating society. "The experience gained in a corner; grocery  should prove of inestimable value to a  minister of finance, and there is no  doubt but that he will be _]able. to  finance the necessary capital .to build  the government railway from the  coast to Kootenay.  It is idle to suppose that Martin is  anxious to promote the Liberal interests. He has assumed the leadership  of the party and he is using his position to bring it into disrepute. Unfortunately he is assisted in the work  by a few who have allowed their enthusiasm to runaway with their judgment.  DOMINION EXPRESS OFFICE.

Armit of Nelson has been in  the city- the past week' looking over  the district with' a ��� view of" locating  sampling works at this point: Mr.  Armit is one of the owners, of the  sampler at Nelson,, which was' built  there about a year ago, but never  opened on account of the labor troubles  in the Slocan causing. the closing  down of the mines and also because of  the bigcombine that was formed, in the  States which practically prohibited the  running of an'independent smelter or  sampler on silver-jetd ores. He how.  ever believes that the plant could be  removed to Greenwood and:, operated  here to advantage, and at'last night's  meeting of the city council, he appeared before that body with a view to  seeing what assistance the city would!  give him to start the works' in Greenwood.       ��� ..',,-'  Mr. Armit has .h^d, considerable ex:  perience in saijipler .works in Colorado,  in which.State there are any.puniber  in  'operation,  and in.speaking;'6f the  advantages of having a sampler located; in ��� the Boundary district, he said :  "Outside of the direct  benefit  derived  by the city in' hciying .a,plant. located  here, it is the means of helping to develop the   whole   district7 By this I  itiean that there are  many ..,^ni,a.ir properties lying idle for want of a market,  close at hand,  where the ore cquldbe  purchased for'cash.   This'is one of the  functions of a Sampler..._. Irrespective  of the character..of. the o^ brpught  us,   it  is  sampled  arid .paid   for.spot  cash.-    In this way 'we collect many  different varieties of '.ore,.which we  mix, .and'in turn either sell'same to a  local smelter or ship.', them out of the,  district. 'The   mine . owner. ofi:'this  section has hot so far been ableto deal  with a local custom sampler.   .Iti  Colorado and in fact in riiQst'pf the pltier  mining districts 7of ;the United States  tlie   6wtier  does   not treat'as a rule,  direct., with the   smelter, but through  the medium of a sampler, that iii many  cases   buys;  the  ore  direct "from the  mine owners atid'then offers it in turn,  when  there is a suEficieiitquantity accumulated to the sinelfers.This not only  creates aVmarket' lor the''ore,   but, also  obtains^for tlieniiueowner all   the advantages such as. the highest market  price,   fnll  value for the . shipments  of       ore,       the .     elimination       of  all    objectionable' feature's,, in   the  ores    and    perhaps    what    is    most  important''to   any ' district    like   the  Boundary, in its early stage of development, the payment: rn1 cash of shipments from small; iproducers.f-; In. fact  the small shipper will receive, fr.oni a  sampler'the sanie'prompt treatment as  would be accorded to the ' big mines.'  As; a'matter of'fact a- sampler is of the  greatest help,:to the: prospective mine  or those   tliat.. hav.e, not: yet jnade a  shipping ''reMrd/\''.'"Anotfier''"feature  which is of great benefit to, the small  shipper and prospector "-'will be. the receiptof sriiallparcels of ore to have a  thorough"mill test made,.covering the  assay value arid the ' analytical'properties of tlie ore submitted..7 Then the  :mi_ie..o.wneh7w,ill_-be_.ih_._a__ppsiti6n^to  know whether"'"his   ore   is   valuable  enough to stand mining, and treatment  charges at a profit.   If I establish a  sampler here I shall also undertake to  either buy outfight or handle the product    of'J a    mine    as    ageiits.for  the owners.   In either case the, owner  will receive the full value of the  ore  contents, arid, will have the additional  advantage of-quick, settlement) and if  any disagreement should arisebetween  the mine owner and the sampler as to  the   value  which the. ore,  contained,  these   can   easily be adjusted on the  spot   without going to a foreign smelter as is of ten the case. .-, " ,  ; "With   regard   to    the   method   of  sampling, we give the shipper either  of two methods, viz: by  the machine,  or  the   more  favorite method of the  ' quarter shovel.'   The sampler at Nelson is modern in every respect, and if  arrangements are made satisfactory to  the city and myself, I shall remove the  same here.     The. machinery consists  of a self-contained adjustable cut-off  engine,   locomotive   boiler,    a   steam  sample drier, a Blake crusher, one set  of belted Carzin rolls and one set of  Dodge rolls, a No. 2 pulverizer and two  automatic split samplers of the Carzin  pattern, this make having proved wonderfully    successful    for    automatic  sampling.    The whole plant will have  a. capacity of 250 tons per day." 'Mr.  Armit left this afternoon for a brief  visit to -Nelson and will return here in  the course of ten days. ������������'���.  down, but there is and has been a  strong undercurrent of bitterness in  the community ever since. Saturday  this sentiment was again in evidence.  It seems ' that Mr.' Mechem's placer  location not only took in the upper  lownsite but also ,ran. over the Indian  allotment and took in a fraction of the  Happy Thought quartz claim, owned  by I. J. Evans.  Last Wednesday I_. Iv. Patrick proceeded to erect a frame building on  this fraction. Mr. Evans ordered him  off. The order was ignored, and Mr.  Evans brought suit for trespass in the  iustice court. On motion of the plaintiff's attorneys the suit was dismissed  and the building . went merrily on.  That is, until Saturday night. Sunday morning at 2 a. ni. the entire town  was aroused by a terrific explosion  that shook houses and made the windows rattle. On investigating it was  found that Mr. Patrick's house was  blown up. Some of the sticks missed  fire or there would have been no lack  of kindling wood in town for some  time to come. This morning. Mr.  .Evans commenced to sink a shaft in  ;the hole* made by the explosion. Mr.  Patrick and Mr. Mechem have offered  a reward of $125 for the person or persons who committed the act, and future developments are anxiously  awaitedv^hy -the townspeople. Mr,  Evanais'oiie of the first prospectors of  the camp, but for several months past  has been bodly crippled with rheumatism.  K. OF P.

Sampler Is the " Prospectors' Friend,"  Says Harry Johns.  Replies have been received by The  Times to three letters in regard to the  benefits to be derived by the establishment of sampling works at this point.  The writers are S. F. Parrish, manager of the B. C. mi.ne, in Summit  cimp; William Yolen Williams, superintendent of the Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill mines, in Greenwood camp,  and Harry Johns, superintendent of  the Sunset mine, in Deadwood camp.  They are all favorable to the proposition, as a perusal of their letters will  show. The Times has also interviewed  ,-) a number of local mining men for  their opinion, and every one expressed  himself on behalf of the proposition, even going so far as to say that  the city, should encourage such industries by a substantial bonus if it hopes  to retain its standing as the: leading  mining community in. the Boundary  district. ���      '*'.  IS AVORTHY OF CONSIDERATION.  Frederick Keffer, mine manager for  the British Columbia Columbia Copper  company, in rt-ply to the query as to the  advantages of .a sampler, said : '.'The  establishment of sampler works,  especially in a district where there is  a number of small prospects capable  of producing ore, is certainly well  worth considering. Such works, when  properly managed, are of incalculable  benefit to a town. They help the small  mine-owner to develop his proper y by  ���giving him ready cash for his ores.  They are a benefit to the smelter by  reason of their being able to purchase  small quantities of different kinds of  ore, and .being in a* position to sample  and classify same when they have got  together a considerable amount they in  turn dispose of the ore to the smelter,  whereas a smelter could hardly afford to  stop hs sampling mill, clean itout and  run throngh only a very small quantity of ore so as to make a separate disposition of the same." ���* *  HELPS NINING INDUSTRY.  F. M. Munn, well known in this city  and interested in claims, in Summit  camp, was in town a day or two since  from Eholt. He was interested in the  reports of, the prospect of a sampler-  being erected here, and in speaking of  the advantages to a district lie said :  " Previous to corning to the Boundary  I have lived in such camps as Cripple  Creek and Victor, in Colorado state.  There eight-tenths of the ore from the  mines first passes through, a sampler.  They are oE immense benefit to any  camp, and the growth of the mining  industry in that state has been in a  great measure fostered by sampling  works. Personally I know little about  the workings. 1 am not an engineer,  but a hotel keeper, but -I speak of the  benefits of such plants from experience  gained in camps where they are in successful operation."  AID TO DEVELOPMENT.  H. R. Kirkpatrick, resident agent for  the James Cooper Manufacturing com-  ^iiy^f~thisr~citypwas'-another^seen  He was of the opinion that the Bound  ary district was capable of producing  sufficient ore to run a -sampler successfully. He said that he had had no personal experience with a plant of that  description, but from what he had  learned, knew that in other countries  samplers were an aid to the development of the mines and in turn benefited the town or camp where they were  located. .���  17. S. Moulton-Barrett, D. A. Cameron and Robert Wood were also* seen  and expressed themselves as heartily  in favor of the city using every effort  to have sampling works located here,  believing that it meant much to the  mines and claims in. many camps surrounding Greenwood.   .  W. YOLEN WILLIAMS VIEWS.  Old Ironsides Mining Co., L.td., )  Phoenix, B. C, April 3rd, 1900. f  To the Editor: Replying to your  favor of the 2nd inst., I would say  that, in my opinion, the most direct  benefit the city would derive from the  establishment of sampling works  within its limits would be the increase  in the payroll of the town, and the  natural increase in the volume of business resulting therefrom. This, ot  course, depends upon the size of the  plant, and the number of men necessary to operate it. If the company  Trho contemplate erecting the works  have sufficient financial backing to  enable them to purchase ore in small  quantities as it may be offered to them,  i would undoubtedly be a good thing  for prospectors and small property  holders who mav wish to sell ore in  small lots in order to realize a little  money to carry "on development work.  It would also afford convenient and reliable means of sampling ore from any  prospect in the neighborhood, for the  purpose oi. determining the actual  value of the ore, which, as a rule, gives  much better satisfaction than when  the ore is assayed from small samples.  It seems to' me that any industry  which helps to increase the payroll and  business of the town should be encouraged and fostered by the ratepayers of Greenwood.  -.' .War. Yolen Williams.  '���' - .      S. F. parrish advises IT.  B. C. Mine, {  Summit Camp, April 5, 1900. '  To the Editor: " I have your letter  about the establishment of sampling  works in Greenwood. The advantages  of such works are numerous, but probably the greatest of all of them, in a  new and largely undeveloped district,  is that it encourages the prospector  and mining man in a small way, giving  him an opportunity of selling smaller  lots of ore than he could probably  afford to send to a distant smelter and  of realizing cash in return for his  labor. Not only in this way is it valuable, however. It gives an opportunity  for extensive sampling of developed  ore bodies in a manner ordinarily impossible at the mine. The errors made  in hand sampling, no matter how carefully" it is clone, are known to every  miner, the results often being serious.  S. F. Pariush.  THE C. PJL BOARD  Held Its Annual Meeting in Montreal  Yesterday.  FIVE PER CENT DIVIDENDS YEARLY  Gossip   of   the   Western   Railroads ��� Send  Freight by the Kettle River From  Midway to Curlew.  harry johns' opinion.  Sunset Mine, )  Deadwood Camp, April 6,1900. f  To the Editor: Answering your inquiry re the establishment of a sampler  at -Greenwood, would say that I am  beartity in favor of the proposition.  In such States as Colorado, Utah,  Nevada and California, wherel have  mined, samplers are in evidence in  nearly every mining camp. They are  there known as the "pros-iectors'  friend." The prospector opening up a  claim on a small scale happily strikes  ore, with the result, if he is in a camp  w-here a. sampler is located, he has a  ready market to dispose of his ores for  spot cash. In turn he benefits the  merchants of,.-, the town by spending  money fo''<n_Tvjr_plies with which to continue th/e development. A sampler in  the Boundary district would benefit  the same just as similar plants have  done in the different States of the  Union that I have mentioned ,  Harry Johns.  Montreal, April 5.���The annual  meeting of the board of directors of  the Canadian Pacific Railway company was held yesterday afternoon,  Sir William Van Home, chairman of  the board, presiding. The annual report already made public was taken as  read. Mr. cT. G. Shaugnessy, president of the company, moved its adoption. The president, in' a brief speech,  referred to the general prosperity of  the system ; the low rates prevailing,  aud how it was proposed to overcome  their effect by building larger locomotives, cars, etc ; the extension of the  company's system in the west, and  other matters pertaining to the well-  fare of the road. Resolutions were  passed, authorizing the expenditure of  $3,266,489 for the maintenance of the  system, and providing for the election1  of a chairman of the board of direc  tors, who should not hold the office of;  president. A resolution of condolence,;  expressing sympathy with the family  of the late Sir George Kirkpatrick, a  colleague, was also passed.  Sir William Van Home was reelected  chairman of the board, Mr. Shaugh-  nessy president of the company, and  Mr. D. McNicoll second vice president  and general manager. .'.*���'  DAMAGED BY THE  WATERFLOW.  A flood of damage suits is likely to  strike the city because the mayor last  year insisted upon having his own  way. When Deadwood street was being graded, Alderman Wood and other  members of. the council strongly urged  that a culvert be piaced over the old  creek bed. The mayor refused, and  the grade was- completed without a  culvert. The result was inevitable.  The overflow water had no way of  escaping and backed tip until it over  flowed the level land between the. creek  and government street. This morning the Miners' hotel, several small  houses in the vicinity and the Alhambra hotel were flooded, causing considerable damage. W. S. Fletche*-,  owner of the Alhambra, and several  other property owners threaten legal  proceedings.  FISK JUBILEE SINGERS.

These included E. P.  Davies of Vancouver, and Colonel  Gregory and John Grant of .[Victoria.  By an organized rush the excluded  delegates, numbering over thirty, made  their way in by main force and a fistic  encounter ensued, which the police  were called in to suppress. Wrangling  over the attempted exclusion continued  until evening. Then, when business  was called, the first motion offered declared that the convention could not  endorse Martin's as a Liberal representative ' Liberal administration. An  uproar followed during which a motion  to adjourn sine die was made and carried and the meeting dispersed. The  anti-Martin motion had not been put.  Another Report.  Vancouver,. April 7.���The Liberal  convention adjourned at 10 o'clock  last, night without transacting any  business. Only one decisive vote was  taken resulting in a tie of 139 for and  against admission of the Cassiar delegates. Martin and supporters were  against these delegates being allowed  but the chairman Fred Peters decided  on casting vote in favor of allowing  them.. At the evening session E. P.  Day is, Q. C., threw a bomb in the  meeting by moving a vote pf want of  confidence in the Martin government.  Martin-objected to this as .being out of  order on the ground thattfthe previous  convention had decided against party  lines and that his government was not  on trial in any way. Tbe chairman  allowed.the Davis movement, then the  convention became unruly and Davis  held the floor for two .hours not being  allowed to speak. Finally the chairman declared that a motion to adjourn  indefinitely was carried and the meeting dispersed half ah hour later.  , Associated Press.  .

Mr. Cresson looks for a  rush of business as soon as the proclamation of the president is issued for  the opening of the reservation.  The excitement over the blowing up  of L. L. Patrick's residence has somewhat abated, although both parties  have applied to the superior court of  Okanogan county for relief. L. L.  Patrick has retained Ernest Peck,  while I. J. Evans has secured the services of the firm of Hopson & Hopson  to conduct his side of the case. As  both parties have expressed a determination to fight the case to the end,  an interesting legal battle may be  expected.  -Dublin, April 7.���The Dublin police,  by order of the government, seized  today's issue of the United Irishmen  as "a print calculated to produce discontent, dissatisfaction and disloyalty."

Graves Auttiorlzes Statement Regardlne  Smelter Charges and the Immense Value  of Knob H1H Mine. _. -  : Shortly after the west-bound train  arrived in the city yesterday a wild  rumor started to go the rounds that  the dam how under construction on the  North Fork of the Kettle river by the  Granby Smelter company had given  way and was a total loss. Immediately  the rumor was brought to the notice of  The Times, W. A. Harkins of Grand  Forks, the well-known newspaper man,  was called up by telephone and asked  if, there was any truth in the same.  Mr. Harkins replied with an emphatic  "No!" He said that while the present  high water had retarded the work, it  would not prevent an early completion.  The superstructure had been finished  and was.being filled in. There was no  danger at all from the water, and the  information regarding the local rumor  came as a surprise to him.  "Say," he said, "while you are at  the.'phone I will give you a piece of  hews. 1 have just interviewed J. P.  Graves, general manager of the stnel-  J^er^cpmpany, and he authorizes the  stat^l5^ht~thaOher "smelter-rate here  will be from $3.50 to $4 per ton, according to the character of the ore treated.  He also said that the superintendent of  the Knot) Hill mine, in Greenwood  camp, had estimated that the ore above  the tunnel level alone was worth $11,-  500,000.- Pretty big, eh?", he ejaculated. "They value the ore at $8.35  per ton, which will leave a net profit  to the shareholders of $3.35 per ton.  The Knob Hill tunnel is in a distance  of 1,100 feet, and they are still driving  in ore."  Mr. Harkins also added that the  smelter there would be "blown in"  within seven weeks and that business  generally in Grand Forks was good.  fiotel Kootenay  MISS, K..SWANSON,',   "''  ;...' -.'"Rroprieteness..   *< '������'���/  Headquarters   for 'Boundary   lliiniaa  Operators.- '     r>  ROSSLAND,!  .B.
