Mnn roe of  Munroe & Munroe, brokers, Montreal,  arrived in the city by Monday's train  and will remain in the- district to the  end of the week. Since Mr. Hogg was  here in October last a large' amount of  work has been done on his company's  properties and he is highly gratified  because of the magnificent showing  both. on the Sunset and\the Crowii  Silver. Prof. Donald is a well known  chemist and mineralogist; one of the  faculty of McGill. He ih here for the  purpose of giving the Company's pro"  perties ail expert examination and he  has been busy examining all the workings and taking samples, Mr. Munroe  is a bright young broker who is visit-,  ing Boundary for the first time. He is  particularly well pleased with Green  wood and thinks it has a bright future;  before it.  Mr. Hogg, stated that the mining  market has been in a had e_ar|d_tiQi* for  several mopths-, Jt is showing some  slight signs, of it4iyrovetiient but Montreal had been badly bitten when the  War EJagle and Centre Star were closed,  down and financial men were more  cautious ahq.it investing In -"mining  properties,, A healthy reaction will  not set in until properties become  shippevs and .returns are secured on the  money already invested. His own  company intendeddeveloping the Sun-���  set and Crown Silver, until they are  shipping mines.  Aid. C. JjcqU Qalloway returned on  Saturday from Boomeraug camp across  the West Fork from the mouth of  Boomerang creek, and about^ nine  miles above West Bridge. Mr. Galloway owns two cla^rn^ there, the \V. S.  and the Bagle fraction. Geo. Inkster  and Peter I<over having been doing  considerable work on the W. S. There  are two distinct ledges on the prooerty.  On one a shaft ^as been sunk in the  ore a distance of 25, feet. The vein is  fully three feet wide. The ore assays  $75 in gold. The other vein, of similar width, has t^een stripped a distance  of 250 feet. 1-f-l.st^f ajitj Love? are  alsp dotyg VKorlj on the Huckleberry, a  claim with a good] showing, qwned by  R. T. Evans of Green wqod'. Tliey will  also dq sorqe work this summeron the  Boomerang, a claim qwned hy themselves. Another prqmjsiqg Qiai.m. is  the  Jponoc.ast, pwqefl by J.over- and  his associates. There is a 45-foot shaft  on the ledge. The ore veiu is about  three and a half feet wide and gives  high gold values. Mr. Galloway says  the trail up the West Fork is in bad  condition. There is a large amount of  travel up the river. Goods of every  discription are being packed in, stoves,  lumber, ore buckets and other heavy  articles needed at the mines. It is surprising how such goods can be taken  over so rough a trail. . The government should lose no time in getting  the wagon road completed.  SUP PL IE..  GREENWOOD, B. C.  The head office of the Morrison Mining company is now in Greenwood and  the majority- of the executive resides  here.. At a special meeting held last  week"A. M. Whiteside, A. H. Sperry  and Duncan Ross were elected directors. The officers are A. H, Sperry,  president; F. H. Oliver, vice president  and general manager; and A. M.  Whiteside, secretary,  Gwand Forks, B. C, July 23.���Two  shifts are pushing development work  on ..the Golden Fagle, Brown's camp,  North Fork of Kettle river. The main  working Bhaft has been sunk to a  depth of 150 feet.. At the 100-foot level  No. 2 vein is eight feet wide between  walls in , a 20-foot drift to the north.  Fffty feet below a drift has been extended fourteen feet in the .same  direction. The vein at tl\e bottom of  the shaft is * about two, arid pn,e half  feet wide, byt fa the -face af the drift  has }ncfea^e3 lQ four feet. In this  working the ore is ��� largely chalopyrite  with some sulphides, small sheaves of  native copper, also having been" en-  encountered. The drift will.Ije extended. It is expected, lhat the drift will  strike "No. 1 vein, exposed in No. 1  shaft and in.the 35-foot cross-cut connecting both shafts at the70-foot level.  The supposition is that the ftv& bodies  unite and form o.r^o lead.  !fft, 1 shaft has been sunk to a depth  of 70 feet. The 16 ton ore shipment  recently sent to the Trail smelter was  taken from a drift at a depth of 45 feet.  The ore body i$ ^he drift is 10-feet  -$ide. Ak T�� feet tne vein was cross-cut  e\ght feet withou,t encountering the  hanging wa .1. -The; ��h .pn"tent gave a  gross i-et\*fn o| $J5 in gold, seven  ounces pi; silver unH three per ceqt copper. _ After paying transportation by.  wagons tq Grand Forks, -railway  freight ".ad treatment charges the net  return was nearly $22 per ton. The ore  aven at depth is greatly oxidized and  consequently is easily mined.  This promising property i% jpqefally  regarded as. one qf the highest grade  p5qpqsit|on��- in the Bqundai-y country.  The development work is being directed Superintendent J. H. Fox, who has  been engaged in mining operations for  many years with marked success. The  Qojden Eafide will soon be a steady  shipper to the Grand Forks smelter.  It ia owned by the Royal Victoria Gold  Mining company, the principal shareholders of which are Alderman P. P.  Sharpe and I/. S. Moul ton-Barrett of  Greenwood.  Jos. Trainer, superintendent of the  Strawberry mine, Brown's camp, North  Fork of Kettle river reports that the  cross-cut started a few days ago on the  iOjO-foot level is five feet in ore. The  crosscut on the 50-foot level disclosed  an ore body 28 feet wide. The t.e Roi  mine at Rossland became a dividend  payer during Mr. Trainer's regime as  superintendent-  Taking the case of the Trail smelter  into consideration, it is found that this  plant is handling ore from the Boundary, but only to such an extenfthat no  more than one of its furnaces is being  kept in full blast. The Slocan ore,  which it also treats, principally galena,  it is providing for by the erection of  two mare lead stacks. To fill another  furnace, it is taking 150 tons of ore  daily from the lie Roi. But there are  four still idle, and yet it is proposed to  I double the capacity of the plant.   Tbe  Iron Mask will shortly be in a position  to supply it with enough ore after the  next month to blow in another fnrnace  and keep it going. Even were the  War Eagle and Centre Star at  once to commence shipping in large  quantities, their combined output is  stated by the official figures of the  Board of Trade not to exceed 400 tons  a day. Or in other words, the present  plant i.s ample to deal with the ores  spoken of. Yet more furnaces are to  be built.  Taking into conti ieration the already shown inadequacy even of the  enlarged plant at Noithport to deal  with the output of the mines of the B.  A. C. alone, the real reason of the enlargement of the plant at Trail is at  once apparent. The management of  the Le Roi mines is' about to acquire  an interest in the smelter so as to be  able to smelt its own. ore on as favorable rates as it gets from its own plant  at Northport.���Rossland Miner. .  BUSY TIMES AT,  Molson, the New Reservation  Town.  MANY BUSINESS HOUSES.  The financial'necessities of the Chinese government growing out of the  Chinese-Japanese war have been the  cause of far-reaching results toward  opening the empire to western enterprise. , A number of negotiations have  been entered into with the view of  directly benefitting the imperial exchequer from the mineral resources of  the empire, and they will likely be coi.-  tiiiued if the present difficulty does not  result in a prolonged war and the dismemberment of the empire.  Mining Js a very old industry with  the Chinese, and the metals are seem-:  ingly nearly exhausted to.water level.  The mines are theoretically the property of the emperor, and only opened  by his cons*nti and. although practically the natiyes_mirie without this,  foreigner^ ast well as securing, this  consgpt, must-reckon with the vested  rights 6,f the native miners, with, the  holder^qf surface rights, and, north of  the great wall, with the feudal,princes  ���all of whom, have some direct mining  privileges���-and'yeyerywh  governing .officials, y Coal and .iron  mining byyaativeV is carried on in  reality without imperial notice or disapproval, but metal mining (principally  precious metals), has often been  checked, and sometimes carried on under imperial supervision.  The Grand.Forks Gazette is all right.  It ornaments two street rumors with  scareheads and pads thorn out to the  lengtn of a half a column each. The  one relate"*, to. the sale of the B. C, mine  to the C P.'R. and the other tells of  the sale of the Mother Lode to the  Standard ott people. There is no truth  in either rumor.  D. E. Cameron, of the Colville Reservation Syndicate, Tells About the  Development ffi the District.  The Dittmer Bros, came in on Tuesday from Copper mountain, immediately east of Bolster. They brought  __yth_thema_sqme__splendid_specimena.-o|;  Copper ore, taken from the properties  which they are developing.  A Minneapolis Mining company sent  a, party of shareholders to see its properties iti Republic. There were about  a dozen in the party and Ihey yiaited  Republic last week, .  It is reported that the British America  Corporation has bonded the Britannia  group of mines on Howe Sound, 30  miles from Vancouver, for $1,500,000.  Messrs. Shallenberger and. McCul-  loch, w.ho have been working their  properties in West Copper qamp, Have  uncovered a large b,ody of copper ore.  Theodore Witty has made a big  strike on a claim between Smith's and  South Deadwood camp. The ledge is  30 feet wide.  It is now reported that the Grand  Forks smelter will "blow in" in two  weeks.  At 12 o'clock, noon, on the 10th day  of October, 190&, the Colville reservation will be thrown open for  settlement. The reservation contains  large areas of arable land; it also  possesses great mineral wealth and,,  as its. climate leaves nothing lo be desired, there is sure to bs a big rush  into the district. Indeed, from the  numerous inquiries already made, and  from the special efforts the Northern  Pacific railway and other transporta- -  tion companies are making to secure  the passenger traffic from the east, it'  looks as if the rush would rival that  made to the famous Oklahoma territory  when it was*'thrown open for settlement.  Situated in the. heart of a large belt  of rich agricultural land, surrounded  by promising mining properties, is the _.  town of Molson.   Although only a few  weeks: old,   it   is   already a bustling,  busy place.    D. E. Cameron, the secretary-treasurer of the Colville Reservation   Syndicate, owning the  toyvnsite  and   also the Poland China group'of  mines in.the vicinity, was in the city  ^  a few days this week, and from him a  Times   representative  gathered  some ���  interesting information regarding the,  new town.  ���'Molson   is growing rapidly," said  he, "and buildings aregoing upas fast'  as lumber can be secured.    At present'  Tillman's  mill, on the Canadian side,  is furnishing the lumber. "There are  already built, or under construction, a  hardware store, two general stores, a -  drug store of which Dr. Couche is*pro-  prietor, three saloons, a steam laundry,  two livery barns and two  restaurants.  Mr. Blatt will open what is the best  hotel on the reservation. "*It is 120x35 "  feet and plastered throughout.  "Our  company   are  completing   a  road down Baker creek to connect with  the   government Vroad   at  Gillespie's. ���  This road will make the distance from'  Rock creek to Molson about. 14 miles. ^  We are having many inquires for busi-  ness^openings-and-people-are coming-  in every day to establish themselves  before the opening-of the reservation.  "On the Poland China mine 16 men  are at work. One shaft is down 125  feet and the 100-foot level will be  reached on another shaft in a few  days." As soon as the hotel is completed and accommodations secured we  intend employing a large, force of men  to develop our prospects around Molson: This work will be under the  supervisfon of T. E. Dickson, an experienced mining man from Cripp'e  creek, who had charge of the development work in the Portland mine in  that district.  "When the reservation is thrown  open," concluded Mr, Cameron, "Molson will be the center of a large and  rich agricultural section. Farming  does not make business as lively as  mining but it gives stability to a.district."  Chas. E. Tisdall, ex-M. P., and president of the Vancouver Board of Trade,  registered at the Imperial last night.  He left for home by today's train.  D. W. Moore, purchasing agent for  the Trail smelter, is in the city.  A. K. Stuart, western commissioner  at the Paris exhibition, has written for  literature. He states there is a scarcity of western literature at the exhibition.  J. R.

MATH1S0N,  DENTIST  Naden-Flood Block,     GREENWOOD  Sleekly ���im$s��  PUBLISH!,!* BY  Tlic Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Company. Limited.  Duncan Ross...  ..Editor.  "Wednesday, july 2s, woo,  SPEECH FROM THE THRONE,  and the legislature has seen fit to pass  laws with a view to protecting white  people against his enterprise. A man  might build a beautiful home an$  find a hideous Chinese laundry- spring  up alongside. So the legislature gave  municipal councils power to regulate j  these laundries.   Here is the section:  "In every municipality, the council  may from time to time make, alter and  repeal by-laws for any of the following  purposes in relation to matters coining  within the classes of subjects next  hereinafter mentioned, that  is to say:  " For prohibiting: or regulatin? the  construction arid use of buildintrs for  laundries, and for ordering the removal of laundries from any particular locality, when in the opinion of  the council, such laundries are a nuisance or eyesore to such locality."  Now this clause gives the council extraordinary power. They may bring  in a by-law making it compulsory, that  a laundry building should, be three-  stories high, with a stone front,'and  plate glass windows, or that a laundry  is an eyesore anywhere within the city  limits. Everything is governed by thc  opinion of the council.  Without considering the Chinese  question at all such a by-law should be  passed and no laundry should be allowed-to pollute running streams.  speech abounded. He demonstrated  what has been shown time and time  again that wnile the present government has spent large sums of money  they had not been extravagant, while,  their predecessors, though spending  less, could not successfully make the  same claim, for they had run the coiin-  tiy into debt, while the present government had more than been able, to pay  as they go.

Greenwood,  b. c.  H. C. SHAW.  EDITORIAL, NOTES.  As was expected the speech from the  throne foreshadows but little legislation for tliis session. The estimates  are the main feature of the speech.  The people of ihe interior will be glad  to learn that it is the intention of the  govern ment- to expend large amounts  on roads and-it is hoped that a fair  share of the money will go to*vards en-  ���couraging the development of the  mineral resources of the province by  .opening up new sections. A vigorous  .policy in this direction will be of the  greatest advantage to the province.  The coal miniug industry is on a  permanent and satisfactory basts and  -caH.easily afford the royalty which the  .government intends to impose. Nevertheless it speaks well for the premier's  good intentions to find that he is ready  io tax his own properties as well as  others. A royalty on the output of  coal mines will fall heavily on the  premier who is responsible for the introduction of this legislation. It is  .stated that this means an additional  taxation to the Dunsmnir companies  ���of $35,000 a year.  We think it is a mistake to open up  the eight-hour trouble again by the appointment of a commission.. If mining, men were left alone, in a short  time they would forget there was an  eight-hour law in existence. Thefindr  ing of a commission can not please  both sides and, if an attempt is made  to change the present act, more trouble  = is^likely to   follow.

One man claims that Chinamen  are detrimental to the best interests  of the country, because they send  their money to China aud do not expend it in this country, that when it  goes to China it never comes back, not  even in the shape of merchandise, and  consequently the country is impoverished up to the full amount sent out,  in other words, Chinese are objectionable and detrimental because they do  not furnish a proportionate'share of  trade. Another orator, and a business  man, strongly advised boycotting any  business man who would sell goods to  a Chinaman and thus encourage Chinamen .in. removing the very objection  taker, to their presence in this country.

There was nothing particularly new in the speech with which the  ex-linancc minister presented his resolution. He travelled in a general de  sultory sort of way all over the field of  political criticism, charged the government with breaking every anti-election  promise, with increasing taxation, the  public debt, and the national expenditure, with expending money in royal  commissions, granting railway subsides, and a good deal more which has  been explained and justified a score of  times already, not only to the minis  terialists in the house, but also as Mr,  Foster will very soon discover, to the  ; satisfaction of the country.  a convincing exposition.

THE G_-_5_.NWO(.D WEEKLY TIMES.  j  FROM THE CAPITAL.  Opening  of the   Provincial   Legislature���A Meagre Bill of Fare.  Victoria, July 23.���The opening of  the legislature -was not marked by an  unusual incidents. Lieutenant-Governor Sir Henry Joly de Ivothiniere has  already made himself popular at the  capital and he put the big crowd more at  ease than his haughty predecessor. He  had in addition to his usual guard of  honor, officers from the Chilian man-  of-war which is visiting'here. The  speech from the throne does not provide a very heavy bill of fare and as it  announces, this is to be considered a  special session and the measures are  consequen-tly   few though important.  The government hope for a short  session^ but they may be disappointed.  The opposition are few in numbers but  they possess abundance of oratical  talent and their leader Joseph Martin  "the * stormy petrel of Canadian  politics" gave an earnest of his intention by opposing the adjournment  until Monday in vigorous terms. His  first-lieutenant, J. C. Brown, is one of  the ablest debaters in the house and  along with him are Smith Curtis and  W. W. B. Mclnnes two clever speakers.  The remaining members ofTthe small  band H. B. G-ilmore, Vancouver, aud  U. C. Smitli.Easl Kootenay, have never  been iu public life and their capabilities are as yet unknown.  On theN~government side there are  some good speakers but they will receive but little encouragement from the  premier. _ He seldom speaks himself  and when ' he does, he is brief and to  the point. He is always anxious to get  things done without any waste of time.  He does everything in his power to  discourage long speeches'.  There are several private bills that  are a legacy from the ill fated session  of last winter.,  J. B. Donald of- Greenwood is here  looking after a bill to incorporate a  telephone company iii which he is interested.    -  /���",-js said that the estimates'will  matte provision for several wagon  roads that have been asked for by the  people of the interior.  STEAM" LAUNDRY.  That  Be  of Snodgrass & Sons >*WU1  Ready Afcout August 1.  -  - After August lst_there"will be no excuse for patronizing Chinese laundries  in - the city. Messrs. Snodgrass &  Sons' big steam laundry will be in  operation and it has a capacity equal  to the town of Greenwood. The plant  has all arrived and a large force "of  l> men" are  at work getting it into   po  ll - sition. A splendidbuilding" has been  - erected for the laundry and the plant  'is the most modern that could be  secured. -Ma'nager Abbott expects to  have it in position about August 1st,  ���when orders will be.taken for laundry  work. It is the intention of the firm  to do first-class work and give a-good  service so that there may be no excuse  for patronizing the Chinese.  -  THE RECENT SESSION.  Concerning the recent session of the  House of Commons, the Toronto Saturday Night makes the following observations: -*  "A great cry and little wool sums up  the session of Parliament now about to  close. Unfortunately it is not the  most important issues that call forth  the longest debates, nor is it the best  men in the house that do the most  talking. As the speeches,.-lengthen  they suffer in matter and composition,  and it "may be doubted whether there is  any deliberative body where a looser  or more prolific"- style of debate  prevails at present than in the Dominion House of Commons. The opposition must shoulder a large share of the  responsibility for the waste of time  and the consequent deterioration iu the  style of argument. There ; was no  reason why the session should have  been prolonged. The natural result of  the spinning-out process is a general  demand on the part of the private  members of an increase of indemnity.  With members on both sides clatnot-  ing for additional "swag," the Government is placed in an awkward position,  but it will receive credit iu the country  for having done all in its power to discourage .both the lengthening out of  the session and the round robin to  which it has given rise." -  A GHASTLY STORY.  Winnipeg, July 23.��� George Reuion,  who has arrived at Port Arthur from  Hudson Bay, brings news confirming  the report of a balloon having been  wrecked and three men having lost  their lives .'in Ungava, on the east  coast of the Hudson Bay. and supposed  to be the remains of the missing Andree  expedition. The &tory was earned by  by Indian hunters to Fort George ori  the north-east'coast of James Bay;  thence by the same band to York Factory, whence it was carried to Moose  Factory. Here Mr. George Renison  was paying a visit to his brother, and  two days after the arrival of the Indians, June 25th, he left Moose Factory, and has just arrived at Port  Arthur. He says that the Indians,  when a considerable distance north of  Fort George, came upon a sight unusual to them. Two meu dead, and  one badly injured, lay beside the.wreck  of a ballon. They gathered around the  injured man, who evidently was in  great agony. The Indians could not  understand the language used by the  man, but by signs he requested them  to kill him, which they did on the spot  where he lay. When they arrived at  Fort George and again at Moose Factory, they related the incident, describing the balloon and car, a thing which  they had never before seen: When  Mr. Renison left Moose Factory'the  Hudson's Bay officials at that point  were arranging to have a party of Indians repair to the scene of the wrecked balloon, and bring in papers and  such other articles as might be found  and be capable of being transferre.l.  A LESSON IN ECONOMICS.  A tax rate of twenty mills on a piece  of land takes away about two-sevenths  of its value. The value of land is the  result of its productive power from day  to day, whether it be devoted to agriculture, commerce or manufacture.  If the use of a piece of-laud is worth  $70 a year' and $20 must be paid in  taxes, the net yearly value of its use  .would be $50. That amount capitalized  at 5 per cent., the current'rate of interest.', would make the actual or selling value of the land $1,000. That is  the calculation that must be titade to  determine the value of the land. The  assessor looks to the real estate market  in which these calculations have been  thoroughly digested, and he finds the  value of the land $1,000. The taxation  levied is twenty mills on the dollar,  which necessitates a payment of $20 to  the public funds. A ��� tenant or lessee  would be asked a rental of $50 aud  taxes, or $70 without taxes. But.it is  the rental that fixes the value at$1,000,  not the value that fixes, the rental? If  the taxation were perpetually removed  by a special exemption, the value would  be based on a net rental of $70, which  capitalized at 5 per cent., would give a  value of $1,400.       - .  **"  INVITE THEM HERE.  Next month the members - of the  Spokane Chamber..of Commerce will  take an excursion to Nelson and Rossland. They should, also come to the  Boundary country. Spokane owes its  prominence largely to' the development  of the mineral wealth of British Columbia and its business men will  doubtless be anxious to visit Boundary  as well as the other mining sections.

The electrical machinery for the big  power plant at* Floriston on the  Truckee river is being installed and  the plant will be completed and the  current ready to turn on about the  middle of September. The most extensive paper plant in the world has  been erected and is now ready for operation atTTloriston. The power will be  derived from the plant of the Truckee  River General Electric company. But  the primary object in view is the  furnishing of electric energy to the  great Comstock mines. The mining  excitement which caused the whole  world to wonder was that of the Comstock lode, which was discovered in  June, 1859. It lies along the eastern  slope of Mount Davidson, about four  miles in length and varies in width  from a few feet to a quarter of a mile.  The first shipment of ore froin the  lode was made from the Ophir discovery in 1860. Thirty-eight tons of  ore were shipped to San Francisco and  when reduced yielded $112,000.  Then commenced the wildest excitement of modern times. The Savage,  Hale Norcross, Chollar-Potosi Gould  and Curry, Yellow Jacket, Crown  Point, Belcher, Imperial" and other  discoveries followed in quick succession, and the mines yielded, in the ten'  years following, $120,000,000. In 1873  the "big bonanza" in the Consolidated  Virgina was struck, and the excitement grew in porportion. Capital-was  pouring into the new camp and Virgina City, a small camp among., the  sagebrush and sand, began to "assume  the -proportions of a great*city, with a  population of 35,000 or more. The  excitement reached its zenith when it*  became known that millions in gold  aud silver were being extracted from  this strike. It is a fact that between  the years 1873 and 1882, $111,975,761  were taken outr from the bonanza.  The strike was made at the 1167-font  level. Then came the question of  draining the lower-levels of the mines,  and the time produced the genius.  Adolph Sutro projected the great tunnel known afterwards by his name.  The tunnel was started in the valley of  thc Carson river and ran for a distance of 20,018 feet in a north-westerly  direction when it struck the Savage  mine at a depth of 1,630 feet. Sub  sequeritly all the mines on the lode  wepe connec$e4 with the t^inel, But  when it was completed tjie deepest  ghiift had reached a depth of 3,000 feet,  bo that the tunnel was of little use at  that time in draining the mines, but  it will ever remain as a great engineering feat, and has been used for the  past two years, in connection with the  hydraulic pumping plant installed by  the Risdon Iron Works of San Francisco, as a discharge point - for the  water forced-from the lower levels.  An article in the Review of "more  th^yj. a y'ejif'agp *#_tji"t{i^ pagtio*-),.j.'Thg  .Hppg of the"g9m��tQck,?'  jn" w^icl*   ^  strong pie**, was madpTfof thei-se of  electric power, to once "-.gain infuse  the=pld-iife into4hefgr^at4odejhad the  desired tffect, and Virgioa- City may  become again populous,  With the event of the installation of  electric power it is ardently hoped, and  indeed it is a fair supposition, that the  rich ore at the deeper levels will be extracted, and, as shown in the Mining  and Engineering Review of June, 1899,  the difference in the cost of steani  power and electricity'; is' so great, in  favor of the latter, the low grade ores  in the upper levels may be worked to  advantage and profit. That there is  yet a great amount of ore in thg old  vvftrl.|np is Known, anfl that there is  t,re to the value of hHndreds of millions  below the present workings is the  opinion of practical mining men. As  an instance It may he referred to, that  at the time of the fire in the Consolidated Virgina, rich ore was being taken  from the Bonanza, but at that time the  workings were bulkheaded and closed,  and have remained so up to the present  It is estimated that the mines of the  Comstock lode Iftive produced, in gold  and silver, Nearly 5400,000,000.���Mining and Engineering Review.

Has Been Carried on.  year, though the financial sky is somewhat clouded, is on the whole bright,  and we confidently look .forward to the  steady development of pur mines,  which are our-chief resources. There  never was, in fact, a time when.the  prospects were better, or when there  were surer grounds of hope for a great  future for the Boundary country than  at the present time. In view, therefore  of the" opportunity of the Board to  exert a wise and potent influence on  the affairs of the city and district, the  hope is expressed that it will not fail  to take advantage of those to their  fullest extent.". -  IN LABOR CIRGLES.  The annual report of the Greenwood  Board of'Trade has been prepared and  will soon be in the hands of theprinter.  The report contains a large amount of  interesting- information regarding the]  resources and development of Boundary. The situation here is summed up  as follows :  "The* year 1899 was a-particularly  prosperous one for thc Boundary, and  especially for Greenwood, which made  unprecedented progress, reflecting iu  ���business, in building" operations and  public improvements, the great activity which its -situation and prospective future inspired.  The building of the Columbia and  Western railway, which with its spur  line., to the mining* cainps cost approximately " *5,000,000; the large  amount of freighting done from Bossburg ami Penticlion; the influx of  "population and'lravel lo and fro; the  active mining development thai, was  carried on ou all Sides; and the assurance ot a smelter being erected almost  within the limits of the city���all con_.  tribiite to the results referred to.  ' During the year buildings to the  value of $325,000 were erected; water  works were ..constructed; lire department fully equipped; streets graded  and" sidewalked;" and city buildings  erected. Electric lighting was provided at a,cost ol" 525,000.  Of course at the opening of railway  traffic, an amount of delayed freight  .was brought iu which swelled the ;i��-  gVegate for the first two or three  months to-^a- degree that may be regarded as abnormal. The amount was  extraordinary, while general traffic receipts exceed eyei1 the anticipations of  the railway officials themselves, Fu,-  some months tlie ireight shipped dawn  the Arrow L,akes for the Boundary  country, three-fifths of which . was  consignedHo Greenwood, was au average of 45 carloads a day. Passenger  traffic is still 'well, maintained.  Since  the first of - the year, a series  of untoward circumstances operated to  . -bring   about    temporary    depression.  The   war in  South Africa hasdrawn  vast  sums of  money   from  the  usual  channels of investment, increasing tin?  demands   elsewhere   and   raisi_i*g the  price of interest;  the labor troubles.in  the    Slocan    and    Rossland,   though  directly   only   slightly    affecting   the  Boundary,   had the. indirect effect of  _   discouraging the mining market and  discouraging the investment of capital  aud the development of properties; up-  __.on_this_came.the_ closing-down-of-the  War Eagle and the Le Boi  mines at  Ivos'slahd, which produced a tremendous slump in the market and completed  the slaughter of stocks, shattering confidence   in  the  mines of British  Colombia for the time b^tu)?" "*.dded to  tliese  was the quarantine established  owing* to tlie outbreak of smallpox on  the south  side  of-the line, which re_  duced the volume of travel greatly; apfi  -- : aj. a eljrnax \o the chapter qf calaifiities  ;   \yas tl*e suspense created hy an unprecedented and almost incomprehensible  political situation.      Such a set of con*  o ditions as has been described came just  at a time when the district waa least  prepared   to  withstand*"it���at  a time  when railway construction had ceased,  when   building   and   public   improvements were  practi.illy 'at a standstill,  aud when on the other hand, the mines  were  awaiting  the. completion . of the  smelters   to   commence   to ship���at'a  time in fact, when the Tjaj roll 'of '{ht  country was at a mitiinuun���the transition period between active  speculation  and   the   shipping   stage.     We . have  reached the poiiit   where investor's  are  waiting for returns for money invested  in   mines   before   going   deeper   into  their pockets.  The causes alluded to are temporary,  giid tl*e effects are ajsq temporary.  We look for a revival in all lines within thetrext.few months, when the war  and labor troubles will be at an end,  and about a dozen of  the neighboring  Mr. H. D. Helmcken has given notice that in the legislature on Wednesday next he will move: . . y  "That, in the opinion of this house,  all government contracts should contain such .conditions as will prevent,  abuses which may arrise from the subletting of . such contracts, and that  every effort should be made to secure  the payment of. such wages .as are  generally accepted as current in each  .trade for competent workingmen in the  district where the work is carried out;  and it is hereby resolved that the work  to.which tljp foregoing policy shall  apply includes not only work undertaken by the government itself, but  also all works aided by a grant of pro-1  vincial public funds, and that the  aforesaid policy shall be forthwith applied lo every department of tin. public  service'and to all the parties now performing services for the government."  William L,yon Mackenzie King, B.  A., is editor-appointee of the Dominion  government prospective Labor Gazette.  At Vienna Mr. Kiug was whiling*away  time, when apprised of the fact that  the position of labor editor or statistician to the horny-handed soils of tqjl  was his. Mr. King once wrote- an  essay for his godfather, "On sweatshops. Outside of this achievement  his next best qualification is that he is  a son of his father���John King, Q.

The public meeting on  Friday evening called by the Trades and Labor  Council to discuss the Chinese question  was a hot affair. Old King Sol during  the day had poured intense heat, alike  on whiteandyellow,and had converted  Miller's hall into a miniature tophe'.  Notwithstanding this there were sufficient people interested in the question  to fill the hall. Mr. Kirkwood was  voted to the "chair, and Secretary Win-  uett also had a seat on the platform.  S; eakers were at a premium. The  orator of the evening, a Mr. McMillan,  of Phoenix, was indisposed and could  not come, so Chairman Kirkwcd  asked for volunteer orators. C. J. McArthur was called to the platform and  he went. He stated he was interested  in the Chinese question, because he  leased ground to Chinamen but he,  notwithstanding this, was prepared to  do everything in his power to rid the  city.of the Chinese by peaceful means.  He urged upon the Trades and Labor  men to keep within the law, but to use  every "effort to rid the city of those who  were a serious menace to whitelabor.  Mayor Hardy was lhe next speaker.  He suggested a boycott of business  houses that would sell goods to Chinamen aud discussed the question from  several standpoints.  Duncan Ross heard the Chinese question discussed for the last twelve years  in the province, but it appeared to be  as serious today as it was twelve years  ago.. There was always those who  would talk strongly enough against  Chinese, but were weak in carrying  out any practical scheme for their dis-  ccafrag��mehtr~" He~sugge&fed that"the  city council avail itself of the power  granted by the Municipal Clauses Act  to regulate lanudries and could thereby  close all the Chinese laundries in the  city. He also advised those present to  go home witli the determination to no  longer patronize Chinese. -..  Mayor Hardy was quite indignant  that "his friend Ross" should suggest  the council had power to regulate  laundries. He didn't know what he  was talking about and was only  anxious to get a slap at Hardy. Ross  and his friends were pinheads any way  and some one (name not mentioned)  had strings ou him. After taking his  seat, the distinguished mayor har-  rangued the crowd until he was called  to order by the. chairman.  Aid, Daye Bannerman was opposed  to Chinamen and would do everything  in his power to help the pause.  J. W. Grier said that the Hardy and  anti-Hardy difficulties always crept in.  to public discussions in Greenwood.  As a laboringman he was not going to  worry himself about thc Chinese question, ho did that for IS years and was  getting tired of it. The people who  were most interested were the business  men and until they joined with the  workingmen in the movement it was  useless attempting to do anything.  H. B. Madden was with them if they  were going to make a clean sweep, but  if their object was simply to attack a  few who were employing- Chinese, because they couldn't get other help, he  was opposed to the movement. He described the difficulties of getting good  white help in the kitchen; that in thc  hotel business patrons demanded  prompt   and   efficient   service.     This  It Is Attracting More Travellers Than  the Yellowstone.  It may not generally be known that  in the Canadian Rockies, says the National Park Gazette, is a more popular  resort than the Yellowstone; but such  is the case. Notwithstanding that the  praises of the latter have been published in all quarters; that it embraces  one of the most picturesque regions in  the United States; that its climatic  conditions are supposed to be exceptionally fine; that it is within easy access of many large cities and densely  populated communities, or that there is  expended on it yearly more than twenty  times the amount spent on this park,  it is gratifying and speaks volumes  for Banff that the number of people  who visit the park is in excess of th<_t  of the Yellowstone. A good index of  the travel to the two parks may be  sw*n in the number of visitors registered annually at the hotels of the  two respective resorts. Here are the  comparative figures for the past five  years:  Y^- �� ^nt    Banff.  lff'S..:....:  -    2,47o 4,924  18* :    2,408 3.996  18.7  '_..   4,870 5,o87  I.S.S..    2.2o7 5,537  1_'''".....     3,637   . 7,387  With this continually increasing  travel will come a more intimate know^  ledjje of the countty at large, and Canada, the land of Thule, will be known  as she is. ~* . -  and peremptorily remove every Chinese  laundry and habitation" outside the city  limits. There is not the slightest need  for the perpetuation of the insanitary  condition that characterze all Chinese  premises in the-city. The law makes  ample provision for the effective di: -  posal of these nuisances, and there is  not a single valid reason why the law  should not be rigorously enforced at  once. Why the Chinese residents of  Kamloops should be permitted to ignore the health regulations and thereby endanger the health of the entire  white community is a mystery.. There  is no need for a Chinese laundry in  Kamloops anyhow. A branch office of  a- good white steam laundry has been  opened here, and there are several  white women in town only too willing  to do washing thatcannot conveniently  be sent away.���Kamloops Sentinel,  DREDGING ON THE FRASER.  CHINESE LAUNDRIES.  They  Can   Be Regulated  in  Other  Cities-Why Not Here?  There was trouble in Chinatown ..this  week and the Celestial washermen  were busy rustling lavyyers, hunting  witnesses and skirmishing for some  scheme to snatch themselves from the  fond embrace of the law which* has  been dropped down upon them for. alleged violations of the wash house  by-law, and also of the trades license  by-law. .-���''".      y ":'i".  It was claimed by the prosecution,  when the case was called up before  Justice Johnson last Wednesday, that  the Chinese laundries of the city had  failed to comply with any of the provisions of the wash house by law,  which called for the establishment of  cesspools and various other guards  against danger to the public health;  and also that they had utterly refused  to take out a license under the trades  license by-law.  After hearing considerable evidence  the case was adjourned until Monday  next at 10 o'clock. Eckstein & Sutton  are acting "~f6F the- pi^ecution^and  Miller, Hannington & Cayley for the  defense.���Grand Forks Gazette.  ������  The city health officer's communication to the council regarding the insanitary condition of the Chinese laundry on Lansdowne street, c_41s for immediate attention. Dr. Procter is well  within the mark when he asserts that  the condition of things, complained of  is a grave menace to the public health.  We would go further than he suggests,  There seems now to be every probability that a serious attempt will be  made to win some portion of the fold  dust which is known to lie on the bed  of the Fraser river. The undertaking  is due to John Cobeldick, who* first  visited British Columbia in 1896, and  has since paid much attention to the  dredging possibilities of the Fraser  and its tributaries. The conditions  existing in the rivers in British Columbia are similar to those extant  wherever the gold dredge has not been  introduced, in so far that the placer  miner may only recover the gold from  the benches and bars. Further than  this it is impossible tor him to proceed in any stream where any great  volume of water exists.  In September of last year operations  were commenced in the construction of  a dredge of a New Zealand pattern on  the banks of the Frazer, uear its confluence with the Thompson river and  three-quarters of a mile from the town  of Lyttpn. The major portion of the  machinery was purchased in this^  country. from the workshops of firms  who have been engaged in--the construction of (.redges for the last thirty  years. The pontoons thirty-two by 100  feet, were constructed, the timbers being boiled .-to steel frames and both  then-joined by heavy timbers, forming  one solid barge with a space of fi.e  feet six inches between the two. It is"  through this space che bucket ladder  travels. Unlike the ordinary harbor  dredge- .which has only one bucket, a  number of buckets form an endless  travelling belt., raising the gravel  from the bed of the river. *  The work \p��s carried to completion  under the sHperyjsior. of ^n experjepp-  ed engineer who has been engaged 'm  dredging the rivers of New Zealand for  the last thirty years. Climatic conditions have made necessary the en-  closing of the machinery, which has  been done by building a frame struct*  ure the length and width of tbe pen--  toons, only leaving a gangway p��  both sides. The craft is eqi)ippe4  '.with.two.boilers, main engine, winches,  dynamos, donkey engines, etc., thp  boilers and engines being built by  Robey, of Lincoln, while the winches  came from the works of~ WilJianj  Symons_&_.Cp., Glasgow., The_ dredge  is lighted throughout by electricity,  having both arc and incandescent  lamps.  The points claimed in favor of the  New Zealand dredge are that it is  automatic, requiring few attendants  and capable of handling large quantities of dirt. The capacity of the oi e  at Lytton is 2,000 cubic yards p r  working day of twenty-four hours.  The cost up to the present has been in  the neighborhood of $15,000.  I ill  .��   n.
