Mining News From the Different Mining  Camps Throughout the District.  Greenyrood gets the second smelter..  Andrew*-Laidlaw, the managing director of the Standard Copper company,  has decided that his company s pyritic  smelter will be erected less than two  miles below Anaconda and not three  miles from the business portion of the  city. Since his arrival here some two  w.eeks ago Mr. Laidlaw has been examining' the available sites between  Greenwood and Roy's ranch. He considered " the most advantageous point  was near the lime kiln, at the junction  of Wood & Galloway's property^and  the Boundary Falls townsite. Messrs.  Wood and Galloway- were willing to  donate the portion of their land required for the smelter site and yesterday Messrs. Lambly and McCarren,  the owners of the Boundary Falls  townsite, spld Mr. Laidlaw the portion  of- their property required at reasonable  terms. The portion of the Boundary  Falls townsite comprises about ten  acres and includes the plot of ground  on which Mr. McCarren's residence is  situated. .The balance' of the site,  about 15 acres, was donated by Messrs.  Wood and Galloway. The site runs  from Boundary creek up beyond the  railway traGk. It has three natuial  benches and ample area for a dump.  The advantages of the site are many.  On it are several lime dykes which will  furnish first-class lime for fluxing at  the lowest possible cost. The necessary spur lines can be run from the  railway on the level, water for granulating the slag can be flumcd conveniently and cheaply and the smelter  will be- within a short distance from  the different mining-camps.- C. _-EJ.  Shaw, C. -IT)., is busy surveying,the  site. As soon \ as the profile can be  secured, \t ^v. .11 be forwarded, to the  Dei}Yer EJngjneering Works who will  prepare plans and specifications for  the buildings. As soon as these reach  Greenwood a large, force of men will be  employed' in excavating and the erection of the necessary buildings.  Mr. ..Laidlaw has received a letter  from the Denver Engineering Works  stating  thjit   the construction of the  Books.  ����  We have constantly on hand  all the School  Books in use in  our public X X  schools. i& X X  ALSO  SLATES, SLATE PENCILS,  CRAYONS, ERASERS,  DICTIONARIES,    SCRIBBLERS, EXCERCISE BOOKS  ETC.   ETC.  plant is being rushed and that it will  be shipped to Greenwood as soon as  completed.  What is known as the railroad tunnel  of the Snowshoe mine, in Greenwood^ camp, is now in nearly 300 feet,  the greater part of this distance in ore.  A crosscut now being driven from this  tunnel is in 40 feet and is not yet  through the ore body. The 70-tiorse  power boiler recently received has been  built in and will shortly be ready for  use. Other new plant lately received  at the mine includes a 42 inch, 10 foot  air receiver, two 3% ��� Little Giant  drills and a 3x2x3 Snow boiler and  feed pump.  A -vinze is being sunk on the first  vein in the crosscut north from the  shaft at, the 300-foot level of the  Winnipeg 'mine, Wellington camp.  Although but little depth has yet been  gained in the winze, the vein has already widened from two to four feet of  good looking ore. A carload is being  shipped to Trail to ascertain its value.  The railway ledge now shows six feet  of shipping ore, a crosscut under the  old 35-foot level, from which ore was  taken out some time ago and the stope  filled with waste, having run into this  nice ore body. The last returns received from the smelter-were from a  20-ton car, which netted $375" after  payment of freight and treatment  charges. There has\ been a decided  improvement in the condition an,d prospects of this mine siuceSuperiiitend*  ent N.

This is regarded as the most  satisfactory development that has yet  taken place in the mine since it demonstrates that the ore, in which two  stopes have been worked at the 100-foot  level with excellent results during the  past few months, lives down to the  300 and is sUU going down strongly'.  The Golden Crown has shipped to-date  nearly 2,000 tons of ore of good grade.  ��� It is expectedjHiatJhej|rift from the  bottom of the.

Some good copper-gold ore is being  obtained in this drift. After the.connection shall have been made, sinking  in the ore will be resumed.  *"*r-i  Smith...  & McRae  :: : COPPER STREET :: :  class from the start and constantly improving. -  Gus Bjorgensen is reported tp have  made a big strike on the Side Hill Star  on Hardy mountain, where it is said  he has one of the biggest showings  ever uncovered on this hill. While doing .the last assessment on this claim  he uncovered an ore body five feet  wide showing gold-copper ore running  up as high as $71.90 pe. ton, according  to assays just taken. cTHe property is  on the upper end of Hardy mountain  and near the good'claims on Goat  mountain. It has been under development for several seasons, although little beyond the regular assessment has  been done. It is the present intention  to inaugurate extensive development  upon the property at once.  Old Ed. Davis, one of the best known  characters of this section, has struck it  again. : At least that is what reports  from Franklin camp say. According  to word which comes down from there  he has located a new property at the  mouth of Franklin creek. This claim,  the name of which cannot be learned,  has one of the finest surface showings  ever seen by the parties who brought  the news to town. It is said that the  lead is one of the widest in Franklin  camp and the ore is almost solid right  on top of the ground.���Grand Forks  Gazette.       7  Another car load of ore was sent  from the Sunset to the Trail smelter  this week.  City (Meanings  Henry Snibley and Archie Chrisholm  were down this week from Franklin  camp where they have staked a claim  which promises to become one of the  biggest properties in that great camp.  Some specimens which they brought  down are as fine as anyone would wish  to see and they say there is a big lead  on the surface. The find has caused  some little excitement in the camp and  several prospectors went up from here  with the intention of making locations.  The boys went back again on Wednesday with a pack outfit and plenty of  supplies to do considerable development on the find before the winter sets'  iu. Jas. West is also, interested with  theboys in the claim.  E. W. Liljegran was in the city this  week on his way to the Humming Bird  ftine, where it is announced, work is  to be resumed immediately. A good  force of men is to be put on and the  work of developing the mine pushed  ahead with all possible vigor, the company feeling sure it has a mine and  wishing to get the property in shape to  give returns on their investment. In  the meantime the ore now on the dump,  several hundred tons in all, is to be  shipped to the smelter here and it is expected that excellent returns will be  obtained, the assays having been first-  NOW RUMNG  Grand Forks Smelter Blown  in on Tuesday.

Yolen Williams, superintendent of the Graves properties, registered  at the Armstrong last evening. He  reported that the smelter had been  blown in that morning and that every  thing was working smoothly.  Jit will have a daily capacity of 500 tons.  The advantages of good water power  are obvious. The North Fortfbf Kettle river will give 1,200 horse power at  extreme low water, The smelter will  use 15,000 miners' inches, under an  actual head of forty-five feet, after deducting friction and all losses. The  dam will give about thirty-five feet of  this head, the rest being made up between the dam and the power-wheel.  The dam is, 175 feet across the top,  75 feet from the heel to toe on bottom,  built out of 12x12 inch sawn timbers,  filled in with rock. The flume is 11x2  feet, and a mile long.  The Le Roi smelter at Northport,  Wash., is able to treat ores at from $4  to $4.50 per ton, excluding, of course,  deductions for metals which they may  carry. Seeing that the Granby works  will be. as . well 4arr;aii��ed, their ores,.  containing an abundance bf iron "and  lime, should certainly be smelted somewhat more cheaply.  Thevalue.of the water power to the  Granby people becomes apparent upon  a little consideration. If steam power  were to be used the cost would be from  $125. to $130 per horse power per annum. In Rossland where electrical  ���power is largely used, the mining com-'  panies pay $60 per horse power per annum, thus saying half the cost as  compared with steam. Power has been'  offered the Granby company from Bon-  jiington Falls, on the Columbia river ^  for $75 per horse power per year, but  by. generating its own power it will  cost ..but the repairs, attendance, etc.,  and the interest on the investment.  The saving, as compared with steam,  will be from $25,000 to $75,000 a year,  according to the amount used. At the  start 350 horse power will be sufficient  _l_?X-%U_PMP-___^s,_cuAtJhe smelter has a  contract with the city of Grand Forks  to supply 250 or 350 horse power as required.  A spur track, two and one-half miles  long, runs from the main line to the  north end of the smelter works. The  powerhouse is within 1,000 feet of the  smelter buildings, and 100 feet below  them. The main power with which the  blowers, sampling works, etc., will be  driven, is to be created by a duplicate  set of 16-inch turbine wheels, operating  under an effective head of 45 feet.  These wheels are connected with the,  flume by a steel intake pipe four feet  seven inches in diameter. Both are  directly connected with one Westing-  house roasting arm, alternating-current generator. Another wheel is  belted to a pump with a daily capacity  of 750,000 gallons. The pump will furnish water and pressure to granulate  the slag as it runs continuously from  the furnaces. There |is yet another  battery in the power house equal to  first mentioned, namely, 16-inch wheels  to supply extra power should such be  required. The power house is 100 feet  long by 30 feet wide, and all the batteries are set in line on one long concrete foundation.  The smelter proper consists o�� two-,  decked, steel jacketed furnaces 160j_30  inches. The gases pass off from the  top in four-inch diameter down-take  pipe, which is connected with the big  dust chamber leading to the stack.  The down-take of the furnaces are connected with the big flue chamber,  10x10 feet on the inside, and 300 feet in  length.    The stack is 11x11 feet, inside  _v;  (Continued oa Page 3.) ��sswmiiia**vefimsmam!xMa**ett  August 22 i960.  ^Eta ��ftE$NWOOD WMt-hY TIMES.  ���jnjld. persons, old and young, should have  W9 their teeth examined once every' six  *M I Months hy a competent, dentist.

The doctor may save him  by coming at thc last moment, and should the  patient recover he is liable to have bad health  tlie remainder of his life on account of _ not  having received proper attention at the right  time. Likewise, a tooth that is neglected may  be filled and saved at the last moment, but will  probably have bad, health the rest of its life.

DENTIST ���  Naden-Flood Block,    GREENWOOD  Weekly Cimes*  PUBLISHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Company, Limited.  Duncan  ross _ Editor.  Wednesday, august 2_.n9oo.  THE ESTIMATES.  A review of the estimates brought  --down iri the house show.that the Provincial government has to a "reasonably satisfactory extent recognized the  urgent necessity for a larger and more  systematic expenditure of public money  oh roads, trails and bridges in the  mining sections of the province. There  is no more serious drawback to the development of the mineral resources of  a new district than a lack of wagon  roads and trails. Railways are necessary in developed : districts, but the  future greatness of the province, does  not lie so much in the older district  but in the proper development of new,  fields. It is satisfactory to note that  the estimates for this purpose are more'  generous than in the past.  - The general appropriations for the  the districts.-with which Greenwood is  directly connected, viz., Rossland and  East Yale are not so large as their importance warrants. In East-Yale the  general appropriation is $14,000 and in  ��� Rossland $8,000. These sums are inadequate but their paucity, is in a,  measure redeemed by special appro-  '' priations tor much needed roads. For  the West Fork road $8,000 has been  voted���a sum that if properly expended,  will build a fairly good road to Beaverton. For the Canyon City road $4,500  has been appropriated. It is presumed,  that, this sum will be- used to recoup,  W. S. Fletcher for his expenditure on  -^this-road last-, spring. -There areappropriations for roads that will open  up the rich Simdkameen country,  among them being one providing for  the completion of the main trunk road"  from Keremeos to Princeton.  In the Boundary country the sum of:  $1,750 is in estimates for the completion of the wagon road from Greenwood to Central camp. The advantage  of having a delegate at Victoria is  demonstrated by special appropriations  for Phoenix. James Punch was in the  capital representing the Phoenix  Board of Trader and he succeeded in  securing $1,000 for a trail from Phoenix to White's camp; $2,500 for a road  from Phoenix to Summit camp, and  $500 for repairs on road from Phoenix  to Wellington camp. There is $2,500  for a bridge across the North Fork  thus giving connection between Greenwood and Brown's and Franklin  camps. For abridge across the Kettle  river at Columbia $1,500 is provided.  Provision is made for several new  schools, those adjacent being at Anaconda, Deadwood, Rock Creek and  Eholt. Provision is made for a janitor  for the Greenwood schools, salary $15  a month. I  The most noticeable feature in Fin-^  ance Minister Turner's budget speech  was the announcement of a royalty on  coal and an increased tax on the output of metalliferous mines.  THE SECOND SMELTER.  other industry, is regulated and controlled not by sentiment but by business principles. In a district-of comparatively low grade ores' transportation is an important factor. Along  haul for ore increases the cost and lessens the profit. This increased cost  no matter how slight it may be, may  prevent the profitable operation of the  lower grade mines. The ideal smelting point is one possessing all the advantages peculiar to the industry itself  and also the additional advantage of  being adjacent to all mining camps.  Such a point is Greenwood. The most  distant of the Boundary camps is less  than ten miles from the city, while  several of the important ones, and particularly Deadwood camp, is so near  that the cost of transportation will not  seriously effect the cost of converting  tlie product of the mines into money.  Along the valley of Boundary creek  are to be found benches suitable for  smelter sites, an adequate supply of  water and abundance of lime. These  with the proximity to the mines gives  Boundary Creek and its metropolis,  Greenwood, so many advantages that  the' smelting center of the district is  sure to be here.  Behind Mr. Laidlaw are some of the  strongest financial and business men  in Canada. They are determined to  make the venture a success and hav-  ing money and the ability, the second  smelter for Greenwood is an assured  fact. *  It is quite within the range of probability, that as the mines are developed, other smelters will be built  near Greenwood. The possibilities of  the district are illimitable and the  then rather optimistic prediction of a  German engineer,, who visited the  country a few years ago, that the  Boundary valley, from Greenwood to  Midway, would some day be one city,  does not appear so exaggerated when  considered with the remarkable progress made since that time.

HALLETT t& SHAW,  Barristers, Solicitors,  Notaries Public.  Cable Address :   " hallett."  Greenwood is to be congratulated  upon Mr. Laidlaw's decision to erect  bis smelter adjacent to the city limits.  Those acquainted to the topography  of the district are not surprised that  the second smelter should come to  Greenwood.    Smelting,    like    every  The eagerness of a strong financial  institution like the Canadian Bank of  Commerce to secure the city's account  is a good advertisement for the city,  but it is bad policy to secure this advertisement by unfair treatment of the  Bank of Montreal. The latter bank  was always ready to - help v-the city  when it was weak and needed the support of its financial strength. The loss  of the city's account will not affect the  Bank of Montreal, but it is always un-  ways unwise for cities, as well as individuals, .to turn, down- old friends  when a favorable opportunity presents,  itself. The apparently more favorable  terms of the. Canadian Bank of Commerce were the natural outcome of a  bright bank manager's efforts to secure  hew business, but if the council were  determined (in the pointed words" of  Aid. Sharpe).to pawn the debentures  to the highest bidder, it was due the  Bank of Montreal that final action  should be delayed until the arrival of  Mr. Finucane when, no doubt, he  would, have been ��� prepared to go his  competitor one better.'        > ���/.

The .blower is 50x38 feet, arid is 12  feet from thefurpa.ce]buij.ding.  .It will  . contain three blowers, one  for "each  furnace,;, and -'one .in."reserve... These,  .'���'���are-, connected with   the furnace by.a  54-inch diameter blast pipe, all blowers  -being  connected -with* the one main  pipe;   Each of these blowers is driven  by in  80-horse power variable speed  ; WestingiiQUse .ij-duction; motor which  is belted directly to the blower. y  The main sampler building is 64x70  feet, and is surrounded,on three sides  by ore bins. The ore train as it comes  s into the smeltery will be carried,,by -an  /incline to a- seriea^of receiving bins,  parallel "to-the frpnt of the sampling  Works, 23 feet above the floor of the  saitje and 33 ,feet .distant. These 'receiving bins will have a total capacity  of 1,000 tons. The bins are filled  directly from the cars, which have a  bottom dump. It is intended that.the  matte shall'be shipped after being  brought up to 45 or 50 per cent copper.  For the present it will go to some eastern refiuery. This shipping matte,  after having been cooled, will be  crushed by a 7x10 Blake crusher, which  will be placed-in one corner of the furnace building on lhe furnace' floor.  This crushed matte will be raised by  an ordinary cup, elevator to a special  matte sampler. This matte can be  sampled automatically or by- hand.'  This lower- part contains four bins  holding about one car of matte, and it  will contain the. matte after it shall  have been sampled.  When the works are enlarged, it is  proposed to put in a matte converting  plant complete, and to ship converted  copper. ��� A^ roasting plant will, also. be;  installed. For the present 50 per cent  of the ore will be roasted in piles.  This process, however, does not-apply  to the ores of the.Knob, Hill, Old Ironside., and Victoria mines controlled by  the Miner-Graves syndicate.  The works also contain atcarpenter  shop, machine and blacksmith shops.  There is awell equipped assay* office in  charge of W.*A. Williams.,  The work of construction was directed by ,*%$. superintendent, A. .JJ.'W.  ..Hodges",' the well known American  .metallurgist. Mr. Hodges- h'as- been  engaged for a long .ter^n^f years- He  has been connected with the smelting  industry since 1886. His first position  was that of assistant superintendent of  the Philadelphia ��� Smelting, and Refining-company-at'Pueblo,'Col. From  there he went to Socorro, N. M., to take  charge of the Ric Grande- smelting  works, belonging to the National Lead  company. 'Later ,he. became.superin-,  tendent of the Campania- Metalhirgica  Mejricana, at San Inis Potosi, Mexico;  next he .accepted the management of  - the St. LouUs Smelting., aad Reining  Works, at St. Louis, tpwt>edJ_y%1the Na1  tional Lead company, and < was-' subsequently promoted to the. management  of the National Lead company in New  York. In addition to this experience,  Mr. Hodges has done much valuable  special worjk^etc,  ^yc^hes^her^;v*Ari^g^;ofHhe;GTa^.hy  Consolidatedj Mining; _and Smelting  company is Jay P. Graves, who has  taken a prominent part in the development of the mineral resources of the  - Boundary district. The assistant  general manager is A. C. Flumerfelt,  forjmerly of Victoria, Bv_C.; Tlie associated . mining companies controlled  by; the so-called Miner-Graves syndicate, and which will ship ore to the  smelter-yjnclude..- the Knojb^Hill, Old  ironsides,'. Victoriai Grey- EJagle.-. "R��  Bell, City of Paris and MajestiCi- ���^he-  value of Jthe ore above the tunnel level  of the Knob Hill, according to the esti-  ; mate of ^;ypien::Wi'Ui^^,'t^e^.^e'pn.i  superintendent, is $11,400,000. The  .Old Ironsides.is equally well developed;  thus it wiU be- seen that' < there is no  question about: ore.-reservesiot-years  to come. Mr, Graves is also the general  manager of; all these, mining companies,!^ Assistant being Mr. Flumerfelt. The.president.of allthese.com-.  panies is S.. H., G. Miner, of Granby,'  Qne. Mr. Miner is a well known-east  em financier and manufacturer. It is:  proposed to do custom work, but'the  ores- of thev syndicate; will. have. the.  preferetice. It is .authoritively< stated  that the , treatment rate for custom  work will not exceed ;.$3.50 per top and-  the figure in many instances is almost  certain to;be considerably less.  The'C. E.: R, has-built ar series of  spurs.froni the main. line, tapping;all  the-camps with one or two ��� exceptions.:  Its line from .Robson. to,MidWay,.has  averaged $40,000 per- mile; one.of :the  most 7expensiye roads ever built in  Canada- Seven tunnels aggregate  more than one mile in length. Rob-,  '.son, on the Columbia river, is 1.495 feet  above the sea; th^summit of the range!  where it is crossed by the track is 4,000  feet -above the-sea.;'Grand'Forksv iti  Kettle river valley, has.-an elevation  of 1,700 feet. After leaving this point  the line begins to climb once more.and:  at, Eholt. it-is 3,100 feet; then it drops,  to 2,500' feet it Greenwood, and 2,000  feet at Midwaly. .-  . At present there is a strong senti-  ment in favor-of railway cotnmunica-  tion'between Grand Forks and Republic,., the rich, gold camp, thirty miles  sputh of the international boundary.  The siliceous ores of Republic would  flux admirably with the sulphide ores  of the Roundary district. Power is  ��� np,w;being .sought from the provincial  legislature to build a railway four aud  prie-.half miles 1 long to the frontier,  there to connect with the proposed  railway to Republic. It is claimed  that 18 per cent of the values of the Republic ores are lost by the cyaniding  process, and that all these values would  be. saved if the orescouldbe.smclted!  instead. The sentiment in Republic  in .favor of- the projected railway, is  very pronounced. This was evidenced  last week when a public meeting, representing the mining and business  interests of that camp, adopted strong  resolutions on the subject.

He was surprised to make Green-  ��� wood in about nine miles, or eleven  {miles from tht river, starting from a  ';point some sixfrniles south of Sullivan's  [ranch, which is about nine or ten miles  | above the junction of thi West Fork  l-withthe main Kettle river. The grade  (.^was by no means heavy, his course  ' having been through a succession of  ; draws until he came out a short distance from the Mother Lode. It is his  x        ���..,:-  "X>pinion-that before any more money  i shall be spent on  the road via Lost  i creek to the upper Kettle river, a care-  ;.ful examination of  the  country   between the Mother Lode and the river  , should be made. From his observations  i whilst walking over it last week, he is  ^confident   that   the  most   direct  and  ; practicable route for a main road from  . Greenwood to the river can here be obtained and that at far less cost than by  any other route yet suggested.   There  , is no rock to be cut through, and though  .-occasional side-hill cutting would be  recessary, there are comparatively long  stretches requiring little or no grading.  ' Where there is growing timber it is not  thick enough to involve heavy expense  in clearing a roadway.   Much of the  .distance through   would   be   through  ��� burnt country, so that the cost in this  direction would not be great.  Mr. Hughes points out that Sullivan's ranch, going via Midway, Rock  creek and Westbridge- is about 40  miles distant from Greenwood, and  points on the main Kettle river and its  ��� tributaries north and north-west of  ' Sullivan's   are   proportionately   more  distant.   To make the river in 11 miles  and Sullivan's in 17 miles is; a very im-  ; portant saving so that the matter is  deserving of the prompt and serious  consideration of the citizens of Greenwood, who are   deeply   interested   in  (securing the increasing trade of that  ������section bf the   Kettle river  country.  7-3ven as compared with the Lost creek  /"route the distance is   much   shorter,  ;-whilst in regard to grade arid cost of  7making a good wagon road the advan-  '.tages  are,   in   the   opinion    of    Mr.  ���^Hughes, far and away in favor of the  ..v-'rou'te lately traversed by him. It is his  intention to return to camp the way he  came in and to blaze his trail   as   he  'goes.    "..������: _'.' ;7y.  The Kinkora group is one that may  7yet   prove  a Valuable   tributary    to  "7Greenwbod.   It comprises six mineral  y.claims, the Kinkora,- Sultan j Czarina,  yTryon, Commanche��.Chief and Little  'f;Widowi yThese are owned by the^Kin-  ���kora Mining Company,  Limited, capitalized at S100.000 in 1,000,000. shares  at 10 cen^s each, of whjch 4O0J0O0 are  .jreasu^y   stock.     None   of the latter  t.have ygt been sold.    The promoters'  |stock has been pooled for two years.  ���^?he company "was   incotpqpi^ed.   }agt  ���fall by.Messrsj An_|r-ew I^tny, pres-  *jdent; J.nQ. Douglas,   secretary-treas-  ?urer; F, Hughes, general manager; Jas.  Atwood and P. S. Hqghes, who form  ;its directorate. s  A   big   Iron-capped  lead  has   been  :: traced,  by  means  of  surface . cuts,  through" five of the claims.    It crosses  a deep gulch with hills rising 1,200 to  \ 1,500 feet on either side.   In the sum-  ���������{ mer of 1899 an open cut was run about  .100 feet along the course of the lead  'ending with a face of well mineralized  jrock IS feet in depth.   This was up the  ; hill side north of the creek. Down near  ��� the camp about 1,000 feet south of this  \ cut and some 500 feet lower down ver-  -tically the lead was this summer pickled up in a tunnel through wash from  ! an open cut and again across the creek  ' l on the south side of the gulch.   Above  '. this the Tock was freely mineralized,  [chiefly with iron and a lit$e GQpper. In  j places ihei gangiie Is a. very likely look's Ing  quartz, with   mineral    scattered  ; through it, and in  others it is heavy  [magnetic  oxide of iron.    Altogether  the showing is a very promising one,  and should the negotiations now on  for sale of a block of treasury stock be  successfully carried through, work.will  shortly be resumed. -It is therefore not  unlikely that ere? long another import-  : ant group will be added to th�� mariy  . mining properties tributary to Greenwood and being opened up with  good  -prospects    of    becoming    permanent  mineB.  BIG LUMBER DEAL  Blue & Fisher Sold Their Interests in  Lumber Company. -,   >':  A big lumber deal was consummated  in the city last week when Messrs.  Blue & Fisher sold out their interest in  the Yale-Columbia Lumber company  to P. Genelle & Co. About a year ago  the saw mills of Blue & isher and  Genelle & Co. were acquired by the  Yale Columbia company and were run  since then by that company. By the  new arrangement Genelle & Co. are  the sole owners, but the business will  be carried on under the name of the  Yale Columbia Lumber company. The  company own nearly all the mills and  yards in the Kootenay and Boundary  districts. Blue & Fisher, who are thc  pioneer lumber men of Greenwood,  have not yet decided what they will do  do, but it is probable that they will begin business for themselves.  GRAND FORKS WINS.  Old Ironsides-Grand Forks Foot Ball  Match Was an Interesting Game.  The game of foot ball between the  Old Ironsides team from Phoenix and  the Grand Forks team was played on  the grounds of the latter on Saturday,  the 18th, in the presence of a large  crowd of spectators, proved an interesting contest. The city put on its  holiday attire and all the business  places were closed for the game. Great  preparations had been made to welcome  the visiting team, and shortly after  lunch, proceeded by the band, the  playerB left for-the grounds accompanied by the citizens. The game  was called at 2:30 and from the first  toot of the whistle till'.time was called,  good team play- was shown on both  sides. After 28 minutes of very hard-  play the boysrof the smelter town  scored the only goal made, McQueen  doing the trick from a clever pass from  Capt. Donaldson. In the second half  the Phoenix boys kept the ball well  into the opponent's goal, but lack of  condition, combined with the stout defense of the home team, prevented a  score being made.  In the evening the boys from the  pay roll town" were right royally entertained by the local-team at a banquet and smoker. The following day  the visitors returned home delighted  with the reception given them.  PREVENTED A TRAGEDY.  Timely information given Mrs-  George Long, of New Straitsville,  Ohio, saved two lives.

If any mineral claim or placer claim  has lapsed, or the owner so serving, or  having served, has become dispossessed thereof by reason of his being a member of such force, his interest in said claims shall be revived on  the passage of this act and he shall  hold said claim-, for a period of one  year therefrom, any statute to the contrary notwithstanding.  REFORM OF THE SEW ATE'.  learning what it is to be governed by  mortmain. The living voice of. the  country is being stifled by a dead hand;  and the commons of Canada, with  their mandate fresh from the people,  find themselves checked and overruled  by men sent to the senate only because  in the past, they had been faithful to  a policy which the nation has definitely rejected. The work of the direct  representatives of the people is being  revised and undone by a chamber  which has been practically nominated  by the opposition. .   ���  The Liberal government is pledged  to reform the senate, and this reform  will be..accomplished along..the lines  indicated in the proposal of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier should he be returned to power  at the approaching general elections.  If, on the other hand, Sir Charles Tupper is again entrusted with the reins of  government, the senate-will remain untouched, and it will once more sink  into the state of apathetic acquiescence  from which it emerged in order to  trouble and embarrass the new Liberal  ministry. At the present time, however, there are no indications pointing  to the probability of a change of  government. The Conservatives have  no popular cry to���" attract the support  of the electorate, bnt areendeavoring  by sentimental and clap-trap side issues, to obscure the only practical  issue of the coming campaign���the reform of the senate���and to divert the  public mind from a proper appreciation  of its importance and the urgency of  its demands.  *      . %  * X F. J, MITCHELL X i  An   Ottawa   correspondent    writes:  The most important issue upon  which  the people of the Dominion of Canada  will be palled to give their verdict at  the   forthcoming   general elections is  the proposal to amend the constitution  sq faf as 'x\ rjilatesjo the senate..   It is  pfoposed by.Sit '"Wilfrid Laurier, as a  -/pefiific rei^edj aga^ns^ t}ie igg-isiativp  (If^dlflclcs   wtuch-;h,ave sq  frequently  occurred in the -Doniinlon  parliament  during the past four years,  to provide  for a joint session of the senate and  honse of commons, and  the decision  arrived at by a majority of the two  houses   upon   any     is.sue   respecting  which there is a conflict of opinion be-  ^eeq   t|-e^, gftajl b!e fjqal."

Qije person for  thstf. party's attitude may tje found in  the   fact   that   Conservatives are,   at  "present, in absolwte~c"or.trol of the "upper chamber.   The Conservative party  is, therefore in a position to veto any  legislation which may be deemed hostile to its intereata, as,it has already  done on more than, one occasion in recent years.   A strong and influential  Section of the Liberal party in Canada  favors    the   total   ex^inptlon "of |he  sjeccmd- c^ambjj^,, t>y. - it \s considered  that s.Hch a reygiHtior-ary  -step would  fee Un wise aqd  ine3-pedie.it to. titH*" at  thia period. Jo the histgryof the Po-  'm.n.ont 7  " As long as the  Conservative party  commanded a; majority in the commons  at Ottawa there was little reason to  a. difficulty with the senate, but eminent public men foresaw and predicted  thatj   when .the .Liberals were in the  ascendant  in   the   popular  chamber,  nothing   short of a revolution would  bring the Conservative majority in the  senate to its senses.   In  this forecast  of eyents jhe prgsgnt situation in .Canada  waa  almost exactly anticipated,  and to amend or end it, a constitutional  revolution  will   be necessary.

Ganadian Bank of Commerce Wants the City's Account,  the Council is Divided���A Bad Mix-Up Over Rules of  Pr6cedure---RendeH Case to Be Appealed���Boun-  -    dary Avenue Completed���Minor Matters.  A bank anxious, to secure business  and a good account, a iiew manager  with plenty of Irish enthusiasm on the  ground, and an old manager hustling  home after basking in the suhshine'  and drinking in the exhilerating atmosphere of Tipperary, a finance committee with minds of their own, other  members of the council set in their  opinions, a city that is the mining,  commercial, financial aad smelting,  center of the Boundary district���all  these factors combined to disturb the  midsummer calm of municipal life and  loosen tb-..,���floodgates of aldermanic  oratory. The incidents leading up to  .the exciting night of the 20tli  of August when the municipal  solons got bewildered in devious intricacies of rules of order and parliamentary procedure are-not^many,_but  they go to show that the financial  standing of the city of Greenwood is so  high that one of the strongest banks  in Canada feels justified in making an  effort to secure its business. It appears that the offers made for the $20,-  000 worth of debentures, issued by the  city, were not satisfactory to the council and the finance committee were empowered to make arrangements with  the Bank of Montreal for a loan of  $10,000 on the security of the debentures. The bank's solicitor drew up  an agreement which he intended should  be conned by the city solicitor that'he  might suggest alterations or amendj  ments. The agreement, however, fell  into the hands of the finance committee and they knowing nothing or caring  less about the law's delays or lawyers'  dickerings, accepted the agreement as  . final, considered it too binding and  marched off to the Canadian Bank of  Commerce to see the manager. Mr.  Smythe is after- business and made a  strong bid for the city account. He at  once offered the committee to loan $13,-  000 on the security of the debentures  without any conditions. The committee reported this offer to a special meeting of the council and recommended its  adoption. There were only three members of the council and the mayor  present at the special meeting, and a  resolution was passed authorizing the  transfer of the city account from the  Bank of Montreal to the Canadian  Bank of Commerce.  The passage of this resolution was  considered by the mayor and other  members of the council as not being  just to the Bank of Montreal. They  pointed out that in the past when the  city was young and not as strong as at.  present, Mr. Finuca'ne, manager of the  Bank of Montreal, had- always been  ready to stand by the city and to back  it up financially on. every possible" occasion. It was in their opinion shabby-  treatment to transfer. the account to  another bank a few hours before he returned from a holiday tripNto Europe.  A report of the proceedings of the  special meeting will be fouad below:  SPBCIAI, MEETING.  A special meeting of the city council  was held in the city hall on Thursday  evening, 16th" inst. The notice convening the meeting, stated the business  to be "Finances." Mayor Hardy was  in the chair and there were aiso present  Aldermen Bannerman, Cropley and  Sullivan.  ��� .  _ The mayor said that the meeting  had been called to consider the question of obtaining-^money.���There-^was-  also some idea of transferring the  city's banking account from the Bank  of Montreal to the Canadian Bank of  Commerce. He asked the chairman of  the finance committee to explain the  position.  Alderman Bannerman said that the  finance committee had received a draft  of an agreement which the Bank of  Montreal required the council to execute before it. would make further advances. This contained a provision  calling for a demand note and another  clause which would empower the Bank  to sell the citj' debentures, to be lodged  as security, after 24 .hours notice, of  their intention to do so, failing discharge meanwhile of the city's liability  to the Bank. The finance committee  was not prepared to do,business on such  short notice.  Mr. H. C. Shaw, (Hallet & Shaw)  representing the Batik of Montreal,  here explained that the agreement referred to had been drawn up by himself, but it was not intended to be final.  It had been submitted to the city solicitor with the expectation that should  there be anything in it the council  objected to this would be considered  and such alteration be made as should  be agreed upon. The clauses to which  Alderman Bannerman had taken ex-  exception had been inserted for the  protection of the bank, and, too, in the  interests of the city. For instance, if  some big judgment were obtained  against the city, the bank's' hands  should not be tied so as to prevent it  protecting itself by sale of the debentures, should it see fit to sell them.  The bank only wanted to do what was  right and as a business corporation it  would not act unfairly  to the city in  this matter. The bank was quite prepared to meet tile finance committee's  requirements in any reasonable  manner.  At the request of Mr. J. W. H.  Smythe, local manager of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce, that- bank's letter  re the city's account was read. The  bank offered.to advance $13,000 upon  the passing of a resolution authorizing  the borrowing of that, amount, and a  further sum of $10,000 on the security  of the $20,000 of city debentures. Debentures to be sold by December 31st  next. * Interest to be paid on such' advances at the rate of seven per cent,  per annum.  Alderman Sullivan said this matter  had been hanging fire for some time-.  A resolution had been drafted by Mr.  Hallett and submitted to the council,  when an objection was raised to giving  a demand note and another proposition  was asked for. The agreement now on  the table had then been submitted, but  the finance committee considered it  unfavorable, so they interviewed, the  Bank of Commerce,**with the result that  that bank had offered to take the city's  account on the conditions just rea.d.  He did not think it fair to'use the offer*  of the Bank of Commerce" as'a leverage  to secure better terms. from the Bank  of Montreal. In his opinion the city's  account should be transferred to the  Bank of Commerce.  The mayor reminded aldermen that  last year when money was required for  public improvements that were for the  benefit of the city and particularly of  its business men, the Bank of Montreal  had. readily advanced it against the  unsold debentures. Personally he was  opposed to: taking the city's account  away from the Bank of v Montreal,  which had carried it through worse  times than the city is now experiencing. The gentleman at present in  charge of the local branch of the  Bank of Montreal in requiring the execution of an agreement was doing-  business in a different way to what Mr.'  Finucane had done and he felt sure  that if the latter official had been here  ho difficulty would have arisen. Still  he would oppose making the suggested  change of bank. He did riot wish to;  dictate to the alderman, but he asked  them tp give full"consideration to the  liberal manner in which the'Bank of  Montreal had in the past dealt with the  city. If they did this they should not.  he thought, itak'e away thie business  from   hat bank.  Mr. Shaw repeated th^t the: Bank of  Montreal was prepared to make terms  "to suit the council. 7 The agreement,  which should not have come before the  council before an Qppurtunity had been  given to meet the objections raised,:  was not final. In fact the banl? was  prepared to advance money without tj-ne  execution of the agreement. He asked  the acting local n. anager, who was  present,. to confirm this statement,  which that gentleman did.  Aldermen Bannerman and Sullivan  had both, thought the agreement final,  hence their application to the Bank of  Commerce. They now adhered.to the  opinion that theyiatter- bank, having  shown its readiness to meet the requirements of the finance committee without conditions considered by it.to be  ob j ection able, - islentitled.to^ha v_e__the_  city's account.  Mr. De Vebber had not had an opportunity of meeting the finance committee before that morning. His bank  would be prepared to honor the city's  cheques to the amount required, upon  the deposit of the debentures and without an agreement if the council did  not wish to execute one.  Alderman Cropley here moved and  Alderman Bannerman seconded "That  the city's account be transferred from  the Bank of Montreal to the Canadian  Bank of Commerce." The mayor, before putting the resolution, again  urged that the aldermen should take  into consideration that in the past the  Bank of Montreal had helped the city  out when it, needed financial assistance. The three aldermen having voted in favor of the resolution, the mayor  declared it carried. On motion of  Aldermen Cropley and Sullivan, the  mayor, finance committee and city  clerk were authorized to make the necessary arrangements for transferring  the account and the council then  adjourned.  RBGUI.AR MKETING.  When the regular meeting of the  council was called all the members  except Aid. Sutherland were present.  The mayor was armed with a copy of  the municipal act and the fun began,  The prologue was by George Birkett  Taylor, city clerk. He read the  minutes of the previous regular meeting and the special meeting of the  council. Then the mayor began before  his time. Instead of allowing the  minutes to pass because they were a  faithful record of what did take place  he thought that the proper moment had  arrived to exercise his vetoing power..  Before the adoption of the minutes he-  would veto, % under section 12 of the  Municipal Clauses Act, two resolutions  one authorizing the transfer of the  city's account from the Bank pf Montreal to the Canadian Bank of Commerce and the other appointing a committee to carry out the intent of this  resolution. The mayor stated that he  was strongly opposed to the;change.  If Mr. Finucane hadbeen in the city  there would have been no trouble and  it was not treating him nor the Bank  of Montreal fairly to change the account just on the eve of his return to  the city. The Bank of Montreal had  been a strong friend of the city in the  past and he-believed the account should  be left there.  Aid. Sharpe believed that there  should be strong and valid reasons for  the transfer of the city account. The  -finance committee had acted hastily  else they would have waited a day until the return of Mr. Finucane who had  always been a strong friend, not only  to the city, but to its business men.  Aid. Bannerman- said the committee  considered Mr. Smythe's offer a more  favorable one and- it was their duty to  do the best for the city.  Aid. Sharpe still thought that the  committee ought to have treated with  the Bank of Montreal. That bank had  voluntarily reduced the rate of interest  one per cent. It was very unfair to  Mr. Finucane to change just before his  arrival in the city.  Aid. Bannerman: "We had been  trying to arrange a loan with the  Bank of Montreal for five or six weeks.  We needed the money. It is bad policy  to have small accounts unpid."    -  Aid. Galloway said that the finance  committee had acted hastily. Instead  of dealing with the old bank or reporting to the council, they on their own  responsibility, had gone to a new bank.  Such an important step should not  have .been taken without the knowledge  of the; council. '  Aid. Sullivan .reviewed at length the  work of the committee. He said that  the Bank of- Montreal' had agreed to  advance $10,000 on the security of the  debentures, but when they went for  the money, the bank also wanted an  ���agreement which the committee considered too stringent and a demand  note j for the amount. The bank  solicitor, had said the agreement was  not final but was for the consideration  of the city solicitor.- The city solicitor  had nothing to do .with terms of the  agreement. It was for him lo advise  the city from a legal standpoint, but  he had nothing whatever to. do with  the terms of the.agreement. The Bank  of Commerce had offered terms satisfactory to the commi.tee and it would  be unfair to ijse these terms with a  view of securing fetter treatinent from  the Bank of Montreal.  Aid.

Aid. Cropley moved'that the minutes  should be adopted as read. This was  seconded by Aid. Bannerman. Aid.  Galloway then moved, seconded by  Aid. Sharpe, to strike put the clauses  dealing with the bank account.  With two resolutions before the council, Aid. Sullivan appealed from the  decision of the chair. The appeal was  sustained on a vote of Cropley, Sullivan and Bannerman, against Sharpe  and Galloway. ..-* *  Aid. Galloway's amendment was not  voted upon and the motion to adopt  was carried in the same vote.  The mayor's veto was forgotten and  was not con a jdered although under  section 12, the council are to consider  the same as soon thereafter as is convenient.  It is difficult to determine where the  council is now at. The mayor's veto  must be considered before the matter  is finally settled. ��� .    ' ..  The ordinary business of the council  included a report of City Engineer  Alston informing the council that the  grade on Boundary avenue had been  completed." The contractors had removed 10,91-1 culuc yards at 4,4 cents  and were entitled tp the amount. TJ_e  report was adopted.  F. W. Hart and others petitioned for  steps from Kimberley street and the  matter was referred to* the street com?  mittee. Mr. Hart also asked for the  street grade for a stone building he in  tends erecting on Copper street below  Deadwood. As there is yet no established grade for that section, Mr.  Hart was so informed.  The street committee were instructed  to make necessary arrangements in  connection with a culvert near Win-  nett's CarriageTWorks.  Aid. Sharpe tendered his resignation  as member of the finance committee.  He maintained that the committee's  instruction had not been followed in  reference to keeping within the revenue and he again referred to the  treatment accorded the Bank of Montreal.
