L(. Brown, but who is more  popularly known as "Barbarian,'  Mr. Brown is yet" a young man but he  has some thrilling experiences to his  credit not the least of which was his  mining venture in the Transvaal. He  earned his sobriuquet in the Coeur d'  Alenes in 1892 when he published a  lively little paper called the Barbariau.  Afterwards he .went to South Africa."  There he became famous because of  his connection with, the Witfontein  case in which Brown secured a judgment of $1,812,000 against Oom Paul's  government. This amount Oom Paul  refused to pay and Mr. Brown was  about to request the intervention of  the United States government to  secure payment of the claim when the  war broke out. He now has assurances  from the Colonial office that as soon as  the war is over his claim will be-hbn-  ored. The incidents leading up-;to  the judgment against the Transvaal  government are sufficiently exciting  and interesting tq warrant a description of tfteig here:  ��� tt ���--. np-1��9* tba-t XflUUg B^owQ .turned,  up in South Africa witli John Hays  Hammond, He had gonefrom the  Coeur d'Alenes after s,n exciting residence of several years in that section;  His ability as a mining engineer was  great and and had been quickly recognized by, John Hays Hammond, that  brilliant Californian who has played  such "a prominent part in the'life of  South Africa. Cecil Rhodes, in turn,  grew to knowUrow's worth, not only  as a mining engineer, but as a cool-  headed, dariiig.and game man. j l  GOLD REEFS WANTKD. /]  So it was that when Oom Paul and  his lawmakers hnd decided to throw  open to lease certain of his rich gold  reefs in the light little Dutch republic,  Brown was a man of some consequence  among the cosmopolitan and feverish  population. Wealthy men-were behind  Brown and had'entrusted to him the  duty of securing the location they  wanted.  With that strange thick-headedness  that seems to be characteristic of the  Transvaal, arrangements for throwing  open the coveted reefs were conducted  iri the crudest and most inadequate  manner. It .must be understood that  these gold lands had long been coveted  by the outlanders. and'jealouslyguarded by the Bder government as its own.  The ' announcement that .the lands  would be thrown open to lease brought  together, as might haye been expected  an immense throng of capitalists and  adventurers, miners of means and poor!  prospectors, blacklegs, thieves, crooks,  criminals, and all pf those diverse elements that go to make the* population  of South Africa! colorful. ���_.  The lands to be leased had been long  before viewed and prospected and their  fabulous wealth were known by mining men. Thousands were there to  apply for leases.where hundreds could  be accommodated. The human ghouls  were there to feast,.on the wealth that  was sure to be afloat where so many  AUD GOLDEN CROWN.

The government h_ad announced that  it would, on a certain d_a.y, open an  office at a pertain place on the plan  where applications for lea��e would be  received, in turn, each' application to  |-be oi* a blarikfcir-n and agcompaniL-J!  by a large-percentage of the sum of  the lea��e for a year. A commissioner  would receive the application and the  monsy,  . NO ''SOONBRS" THERB.  There was no chance for "sooners."  First come, first served, was to be the  motto. He-who reached the office first  would receive the coveted lease, which  meant, in all human probability, a fortune. .   _,  How to reach there first? That was  the; problem Brown, days before the  date of opening the office, had set his  brain to solve.  He was a westerner by adoption, but  a type. ,Aty.u.t hinvitJ. the Transvaal  he found hundreds of men he knew;  men from Montana, from "Wyoming,  from Idaho. Some were there for their  country's good and some were there  solely from choice, but all were clear  grit. Theirs was the kind of western  American manhood th^t followed  Teddy Rooseyelt at Ljos Guasimas, at  El Caney and. Vxt San Juan hill. Of  the sanie kind is the western volunteer  whose deeds of daring and indomitabla  courage in the Philippine islands are  causing the military men of the world  to wonder. _���'������'���  Four hundred of these reckless,brave  and strong-willed men entered Brown's  employ. Great interests were behind  the young engineer and he paid well.  With these 400 westerners, trained to  ride; to shoot and to fight, what could  he not have done! He intended to set  them against 5,000' men of other nationalities who would be ba.tliag to  reach the coveted door ahead of him.  He felt confident.they would win.  A FOOTBAtI, TRICK.  Once upon a time Brown had been a  college student, and despite the short  stature, had been a football player, He  proceeded to instruct a class of 400 apt  but laughing p,upjl�� into the mysteries  of an old football trick.  Imagine a blistering African plain,  sandy and grassless, the heat waves  shimmering over the surface and  scorching the faces of a huge^ sweating, swearing mob of 5,000 angry men,  panting under the tropic sun that is  ^st approaching the meridian. Away  in the distance, dimly blue and indistinct through the heated atmosphere, j  rise the hills. B.etween you and them  there is nothing s?.ve sand and heat,  and this huge crowd of men, swarming  an4 fighting about a tiny,   red corxu-  Tlie fourth annual meeting of shareholders in the Brandon & Goldon  Crown Mining Company, Ltd., was  held in Greenwood yesterday afternoon. Hon. T. Mayne Daly, Q. C,  president of ths company, presided and  there were 1,356,979 out of the 1,500,000  in the^company represented either in  person or by proxy.  The balance sheet and auditor's report for the year endiug. August 31st  ult. were ; submitted and adopted.  These were ordered printed and a copy  sent to each shareholder. The report  stated among other things that to date  about 2,500 feet of work had been "done  underground in development of the  mine and that the total quantity "of ore  shipped was 1,875 tons.  A resolution was passed providing  for the pooling, for a further period of  six months, dating from the time the  present pool shall expire, on January  1st, 1901, of the 1,000,000 shares held by  the promoters of the company. This  will make the duration of the pool to  have extended over a total period of  four years and six months.  The election of directors and officers  resulted as follows; Hon. T. Mayne  Daly.-Q. C, Rosslaud; Mr". W. A. McDonald, Q. C, Nelson; Hon. J. N.  Kirchhoffer and Mr. A. Kelley;SBran-  don, Man.; Mr.  C. E.  L. Jarvis,  St.  Johns, N. B.; Mr. W. A.  Fuller,  Spo-  and  A force of men are at work clearing  the grounds for the Standard Pyritic  Smelter. Work on building the flume  and grading will be commenced in  about ten days. Mr. Laidlaw, the  managing-director, has received a letter from the Denver- Engineering  Works informing him that the complete plant would be ready within contract time, yiz., October 1st, and would  be shipped to Greenwood immediately..  This will insure no delay,.after* the  work is'commenced so that there is  every assurance that the smelter will  be blown in early next year.  Paul Johnson, M. E., superintendent  of the Greenwood smelter, is arranging to have ore shipped from the  Mother Lode next week. The necessary track will be laid with this object  in view. There is nothing-new so far  as the smelter is concerned as all the  plant has not yet been shipped, but ore  from the mine will be hauled to the  smelter so that a good supply will be  oh hand as soon as the smelter is ready  to blow in.  'A  Kane; Mr. W, J. Porter j FI_Gs.__:v  Messrs. G. H. Collins and Jas. Russell,  Greenwood. The officers are : President, Hon.JT. Mayne Daly; vice-president, Mr. W. J. Porter; - managing  director, Mr, Geo. H. Collins; secretary-  treasurer, Mr. W, L. Orde.  The other business transacted was  of a routine character, of little public  interest. It may be worthy of mention  that Mr. R. L. Johnston, of St. .John,  -N. B., attended the meeting as the representative of shareholders resident  in that province, and expressed himself as. well satisfied with the position  and prospects of the company as submitted to the shareholders.  Reference was made last week to the  James Cooper Manufacturing company's success at the Paris exhibition  and in connection therewith it was  stated that this company had furnished  the plant for the Knob Hill and Old  Ironsides. This was an error. The  Jenckes Machine company furnished  thc I*-.-.?- .mines with all the plant now  in use as weii a*, .-"-new plant recently  ordered. The Jenckes Machine company- have also sold the British Columbia Copper company a portion of .  the plant for the Mother Lode mine.  E. F. Massam, Mr.  Laidlaw's part--  ner, has decided to move to Greenwood  and   the   firm  of Massam & Laidiaw  will open an office here wherea general:  mining and brokerage business will be  carried on.  The Evening Star in Wellington  camp is;going to be one of the big copper mines of the district, if the big  ledge will produce ore like that taken  from the present workings. Mr. Laidlaw- this week-brought down samples  for assaying that are as pretty specimens of Copper ore as can be found  any where. The ore was taken from  the 8x4 shaft which is being sunk on  the 150-foot ledge. Surface work has  crosscut the ledge for this distance.  The three men employed are taking  from the shaft 500 to 600 pounds of this  high grade ore daily. A trial ship��  ment will shortly be s.nt to the Gran  by smelter from the property.  The shaft on the Marguerite is down  100 feet and crosscutting will begin  both east and west. Eight men are  employed on the property.  r  .Continued on. Paje 3.)  R.   Grieger, of the B. C. Wholesale  Liquor company, has returned from the  Slate creek country where he has valuable  mining   interests.   Mr.  Grieger  was  well pleased  with the prospects  development work exposing   a large  amount  of   free-milling   ore  on   the  Grand Prize in which he holds a quarter  interest.   Further  news  was  re,  ceiyed since returning home in a letter  from G. W. Elliot, treasurer of Okanagan   county,  who is also one of the  owners in the Grand Prize.   Mr. Elliot  stated  that Mr. Ballard, the superintendent, has just reported that the tunnel had cut through eight feet of fine  ore   that ran $50 from   wall to wall.  The ore is free milling.   A valuable  property near the  Grand Prize is the  Mammoth   iri  which   Robt.   Wood of  Greenwood, is interested.   Here a five-  stamp mill is treating the free milling  ore and 25 men are at work on the property.   From   the   statements  of  Mr..  Grieger and  others   acquainted with  the Slate  creek  country,, it is safe to  predict a splendid future for the district,  CITY COUNCIL.  Business Transacted at its Regular  Meeting Monday Evening.  *Mayor Hardy presided at the regular  "meeting of the council Monday evening and Aid. Galloway, Sullivan,  Cropley and Bannerman were present.  City Solicitor Leamy wiote advising  a bylaw establishing street grades and  he was instructed to prepare the same.  Dr. Schon, health officer in a lengthy  report congratulated the council in the  good sanitary condition of the city.  He recommenced that improvements  be made at several hotels particularly  with regard to ventilating flumes from  cesspools and also that the steam laundry waste water was a nuisence. He  recommended that it be chemically-  treated and the purified water carried  off by a pipe. The report was accepted  and Dr. Schon requested to furthers  investigate the best methods of dealing with the laundry water.  Paul Johnson, superintendent of the  smelter, was granted permission to  take 40 or 50 loads of gravel from  Mineral street. John Carvelson & Co.,  were awarded the contract for certain  work to connect with Deadwood  street culvert at 40 cq^its a yard. jTke  city engineer was instructed to stop all  city work until further notice.  The council decided to give Mr.  Ostroski a note for his claim against  the city, same to bear six per cent interest and due December 31st.  J.   Grant   Henderson,   special commissioner  for   the   Pan-American exposition at Buffalo, wrote with a view  to securing a mining exhibit.

THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.  [LL persons, old and young-, should have  their teeth examined once every six  ~- ��� Months by a competent dentist. Decay  will be present, and tartar formiin., which  nothing- but a thoroug-h examination will reveal. Professional service rendered in time  means hiyh-class work, less pain and great  economy. A tooth filled when decay is slight  will not be sensitive, the operation not long,  and the filling lasting, becaase the operator  has more and better structure to work on. He  is enabled to make the walls of the cavity  thicker and stronger, and with slight danger  . of exposing the nerve, the dread and fear of all  when having' teeth filled. Have your teeth  attended to in time. Do not procrastinate.  Give the dentist good tooth-stfucture to work  upon, and he will render yon excellent service.  Many persons put off their visits to thedentist  when sensitive teeth have given frequent warning. With mind excited, body in high nervous  tension, and with excruciating pain and suffering plainly written on every feature, they come  for relief. How can the dentist be expected to  perform the best operation when the patient is  in the worst possible condition to receive it ? If  your friend is sick do not wait until he is al-  mbst dead before you do something for him or  send for the doctor. The doctor may .save him  by coming at the last moment, and should the  patient recover he is liable to have bad health  the 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.  One person in a hundred has good teeth, ninety  nine persons in a hundred could have good  teeth with proper attention.  DR. R. MATHISON.  DENTIST  Naden-Flood Block,    GREENWOOD  October but the wiseacres have now  chosen Jonuary as the month when  people will decide whether to continue  the present government or not.  |' In this district the fight will be made  under peculiarly satisfactory conditions. The conventions by choosing  Messrs. Gallagher and McNeill have  given the lie to the statement that a  candidate must be possessed of great  wealth in order to run in this district.  Both candidates start in the running  ou a even footing so far as they themselves are concerned. Both are not  wealthy men, both are lawyers and  both are possessed of ability. Both  candidates are practically unknown  outside the cities in which they reside  and both have had no parliamentry  experience. The prejudice in favor of  a local man in Rossland will be offset  by a similar prejudice in favor of the  Nelson man. The fight will be fought  as it should be fought on the merits  and records of the two great parties  in this country and not on personal  grounds.  Under these circumstances the battle  in Yale-Cariboo district should be  foug-ht without an unpleasant personal  conflicts that usually marthepleasur. s  of election campaigns.

CSC  meekly times,  PUBLISHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and publishing  Company, Limited.  Duncan Ross.  ..Editor.  WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1900.  WHAT WE OUGHT TO DO.  WE are all interested in the growth  of the city of Greenwood. We take a  keen interest in anything that is being  done to promote the interests of the  city but in watching what others are  doing we overlook what we could do  ourselves. We congratulate each other  upon the fact that new industries are  started here and suggest ways and  means to encourage new men and new  money to come among us. The starting of an industry is a good thing. It  adds to the wealth and the permancy  of the town and creates a good impression on the outside, but in order to  hold what we have, we must dr> - ~;  share. .-������-���  For'instance, there was a general  satisfaction expressed at the establishment of a steam laundry in the  city and people wished it good luck.  Many of those who were anxious to see  it started are still thoughtlessly patronizing Chinese laundries. Neither a  steam laundry nor any other industry  cannot be run solely in the public interest. It is a business undertaking  and must receive sufficient^ patronage  to pay the help and operating expenses.  There is sufficient business in Greenwood for a steam laundry but that  business is now divided with Chinese.  The Chinese question is purely a business one and in this respect it applies to the operation of laundries. The  ""steamlaundry'is'payihgbut abou  each week in wages and operating expenses. At least 90 per cent of this  fi nds direct circulation in the city and  the town is consequently benefitted to  that extent. Over $200 a weekis paid  to the Chinese laundries in the city,  and the greater portion of this amount  is lost to everyone interested in its  growth and development.  There is no law which can force people to extend their patronage iu any  direction, but if the citizens of Greenwood would only 3top and think, they  are all sufficient of patriotic, to turn  what business they have in that direction which is in the best interests of  the city and of themselves.  It is quite possible, indeed probable,  that Chinese prices are lower than  those of tbe steam laundry, but setting  aside the advantage of having money  so expended again placed in circulation, there are so many advantages  particularly that of cleanliness in  favor of the steam laundry that more  than outweighs the additional cost.  The easiest way to settle the Chinese question is by individual effort.  All appreciate the importance of a first  class laundry in the city and it can be  maintained if all determine that it  shall have the preference over Chinese  laundries.  THE TWO CANDIDATES.  GOOD ROADS ASSOCIATION.  Through the efforts of the Kamloops Board of Trade a convention  will be held in that city for the purpose of organizing a Good Roads Association. Similar organization in  other parts have had a highly beneficial  influence-in the important matter, of  securing good roads and there is no  good reason why an association in this  province should not be able to do much'  in the public interest. There is probably no country in the world where  money has been more lavishly spent  with poorer. results than in this province. Fortunately during recent  years more system has been intoduced  in road making but there is still room  for improvement.  EDITORIAL, NOTES.  The fact that candidates are being  nominated in the different constituencies throughout the Dominion and  that the leaders of both parties are on  the stump indicate that the country is  in the throes of an election campaign  no matter how long election day may  be deferred. It was at first thought  that   the elections   would be held in  Throughout the province general  sj-mpathy has been expressed for Mr.  Bostock in his financial difficulties. It  is gratifying to know that Mr. Bostock  who has been a faithful public servant  has sufficient meansj-o more thar. znezt  all his liabilities. It is another instance where a wealthy man has been  forced to the wall because he invested  too freely and was not able to at once  realize sufficient cash to meet the importunities of creditors.  The Molson Magnet has made its  appearance. If Molson were as good a  town as the Magnet is a newspaper, it  would indeed be a flourishing place,  but newspaper men have a" habit of  mortgaging the future. With the  opening of the reservation and a large  influx of people it is probable that Mr.  Batterson, the proprietor, will be able  to maintain the high standard under  which it was launched.  Paul Johnson, M. E., the general  superintendent of the Greenwood  smelter, Jas.t weej-yvisited the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks. It .stratifying to learn that the" opinion of an  eminent expert like Mr. Johnson is  most favorable. He has nothing but  words of praise for both the management and the plant at the Granby  smelter.  IT IS gratifying to learn from the  medical health officer's report to the  council that the city is practically free  from disease and that sanitary regulations are being generally observed.  Greenwood has a reputation of being a  clean city.  Another election in sight. An  election every few months of some sort  lends color to the statement that in  these modern times, people are too  much governed.  Watch for the waving of the old  flag. Patriotism is the last resort of a  certain class of politicians.  The decided reaction in mining will  soon affect the commercial interests.  ENDURED DEATH'S AGONIES.  . Only a roaring fire enabled J. M.  Garrettson,of San Antonio, Tex., to  lie down when' attacked by asthma,  from which he suffered for years. He  writes his misery, was often so great  that it seemed he endured the agonies  of death; but Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption wholly cured  him. This marvelous medicine is the  only known cure for asthma as well as  consumption, coughs and colds, and all  throat, chest and lung troubles. Price  SOc aud SI. Guaranteed.

BRO  Continued From Pap 1.  gated iron sha.11t.3-, within which sits a  stolid, pipe-smoking- Boer commissioner, and a clerk, waiting for the  hour of noon to arrive.  For 12 hours that solid mass of  humanity in front of the window in  the shanty has stood Ihere. Each hour  has seen it increased, and now, as the  fateful time approaches, the mass tries  to weld itself into a still more compact  lump. Men grind and gouge and curse.  There is murder in the air. In all the  great crowd there is one idea, one  wish, one desire���to reach that window.  Gradually Brown's men who have  affected the outer edge of the crowd,  come together. They are quiet and un  concerned in the manner and appear  to be quite at honie'on th'is desert.  Western plains have taught them a  lesson.  i Brown is among them, cool and  pleasant; his five feet eight inches of  height and uarrow -breadth making  him appear puny besides his brave?..  He looks at his watch���11:55.  He draws close to the crowd.. A  huge, tawny-mustached, blue-eyed man  comes, close behind him and tower.,  over Brown. They press into the crowd,  gently, at first; then harder, faster,"  passionately.  CHARGIC OF TUB FOUR HUNDRED.  Watch the four hundred. They are  coining together. Two men press close  lo the "back of the man who stands  back of Brown and has now lifted the  little man clear off the ground. Behind them, rapidly forming into a V  shaped mass the whole 400 appears.  It is the flying wedge.  But such a flying wedge! Every  man has a sharp-pointed bowie knife  in his sleeve, prepared to prick, but  not to kill; to persuade, not to murder.  Up to this'time   the crcwd has not  ' realized what is  happening.    But now  ' a murmur begins.to.go up.--. Men begin  to turn their heads.  "Come on, boys." It is Brown's  voice.   -  There is a sudden, mighty movement  forward. There is a crunching'of bones  and a howling of curses. Ribs~~are  broken, men are struck as _if-by an  earthquake and thrown up and on the  faces of their companions. As the cut  water of a mighty battleship throws  up a wave in front and to its sides as it  cuts through the opposing sea, so did  .. this human cut-water throw up a wave  of men.  But a packed mass of 5,000 men is no  easy thing to pass" through. With  bowed heads and bodies pressed close  together the flying wedge bucks the  center of thc crowd, and .bucks it with  enormous power.  And as the hour of noon strikes and  the window opens Brown's form is  hurled against its lintel and Brown's  money is thrown down before the astonished Boer.    *'  The'flying'wedge has won. ��� ���  But Oom Paul's people disapprove  of such methods. It is a Yankee trick.  Nevertheless the law has been com-  ^plied -with=-and-;Brpwulfeels=.he.is=_vick  torious. He and his flying wedge fight  their >way back, and leave the cursing  crowd to scramble for what it is left  after the choice locations have been  taken. They howl and battle aud al  most overwhelm the commissioner until he slams the window and declares  all the proceedings illegal and goes  away to*Pretoria to advise with the  government.  That is the story of the flying wedge  and what it'did.   7  And now comes another chapter.  Feeling that it had in some manner  been outwitted, the Transvaal government sought to repudiate the lease it  had given Brown, under protest, as it  were. It approved the course of the  commissioner in declaring thc proceedings illegal, tendered back all the.  money received and.sought another  way bf disposing of the lands.  Thereupon suit was instituted by  Brown in the high court of the Transvaal and after interminable delays the  august justices in 1897 were obliged to  declare Brown in the right and give  him judgment in the isum of $1,812,000  against the republic forthe profits that  would have been his had he been allowed his land.  generously undertaken to provide refreshments free, and the transportation difficulty has,been got over by the  British Columbia : Copper company  guaranteeing an amount sufficient to  cover the minimum number of fares  to , the... C.' P. R. coinpanj- requires to  run a special train; which will leave  Anaconda at 8 o'clock p. m. and the  Greenwood railway station at 8:15. oh  the evening of lhe ball. Onthe return  trip the train will leave the mine at 3  a. .'in.. The occasion for giving the  ball is to celebrate the opeuihg'of the  new dining half lately erected at the  mine and which is large enough to  seat 250 at tlie dining tables. In'addition- there is an upstairs ball, so  there should be ample room to com-  fortably-accommodate the full number  of guests invited. The "boys" at the  mine are entering into the affair with  much spirit and what with decorations,  -refreshments, (food rntisic and open-  hearted hospitality, it should be a big  success. -  JACOBS  fliii, 111, ne.

HOUSE BOAT  A Most Delightful Outing Home for  Those Who Desire It.  The new C. P. R. house boat which  is   now completed  and   ready  for occupation   has been   visited by a large  number of Nelson people, all of whom  declare it to be an ideal   outing'  home.-  The   boat  is  completely furnished  in  every respect.   The  four state rooms  with their four double and  four single '  berths   are equipped with everything j  one would desire hi a bed roum at home.  Iu the dining room is all that a dining  room requires,  silverware,  glasswaie,  etc., aiul the room itself is sufficiently :  large   to   accomodate any  party that I  could travel on thc boat.    The kitchen |  is complete,   too,  and in fact, there is j  nothing lacking anywhere.    All of the j  rooms are carpeted and the hallway is j  laid   with   oilcloth.    Upstairs you are ;  iu   tlie open  air,   with  an   awning to j  shield   you  from   the  sun and a hammock if you would lay clown  aud read  and rest.    No more delightful place, to  spend   a   week   or two,  could be imagined, provided, of course, the boat is  anchored in some one of  the thousand  beauty spots of Kootenay lake.    Nowhere, perhaps, in all the. Dominion of  Canada is there a body of water offering to the man of the reel and fly or he  of   the  gun   such  inducements as are  offered anywhere on  Kootenay Lake  and   nowhere are there more delightfully secluded places than can be found  here.    And   it is to give visitors the  opportunity  of seeing  all this, under  most  pleasant  conditions, that the C.  P. R. has caused to be built this house  boat.     It is to be rented to parties and  at a figure which makes  it  within the  reach  of everyone who can afford an  outing.    The  boat itself will  rent at  $5 per day, with a minimum charge of  $20.   It will be towed to any point that  .can   be   reached from  Nelson at  the  regular towage charge of 50 cents  per  niile,  with  a minimum towage charge  of $5.   All that those who rent the boat  have to do, is to stock it with eatables  and drinkables.     Nothing else is re*  quired by  them   unless  they desire a  servant and this the C. P. R. officials  will undertake to secure for them.  c .r tain that the entire population returns will be ready for congress when  it meets in December. Enough has  been counted so far tu give some idea  of the result of the census. For some  years the opinion has been prevalei:}  that the Census of 1900 would show a  total population of 75,000,000. The returns from the thirty cities show an  average increase of almost 30 per cent  which," if maintained throughout the  country, would mean that the population is in the neighborhood of 80,000,-  000. But it is characteristic of all  countties that the towns grow faster  than the country districts, and the  larger the city the more rapidly it  grows.

WILL BRIDGE THE COLUMBIA,  An important announcement has  been made by the Canadian Pacific  officials to the effect that a bridge is to  be constructed over the Columbia  river at Sproat's Landing, a few miles  below Robson. The enterprise will  undoubtedly cost over half a million  dollars. The undertaking has been  talked of for a considerable time, but  not until a few days ago was it known  that the work would be carried on in  the near future. The plans for the  bridge have been received from the  the head office at Montreal and the  local officials will proceed at once to  carry out the work.  The bridge will be built of steel and  consist of five spans. The center portion will be a draw spau so as to admit of the passing of steamers. The  central piers, on which the bridge will  be supported, will be over 60 feet in  height, ari<_ "comftructed"of'heavy  masonary work. The bridge.when  completed will be one of the most extensive that is on the line of the Canadian Pacific in . western Canada.  The bridge will connect the Colum-  bia-Kootenay railway with the Columbia-Western, and will do away with  the ferry at Robson. At the present  time all traffic has to be transported by  the ferry, but at the completion of Uje  enterprise there will be a through rail  route' from Nelson to Rossland, and.  qls.q from Isjclson to the Boundary  country.���Nelson Miner.  NEW COAL COMPANY.  The September B. C. Mining Record  says: If it is true, as reported, that Mr.  Maynard H. Cowan and other Montana mining capitalists with extensive  smelter connections have ac(_uired and  will shortly work a large area of coal  land in the Crow's Nest country near  Livingston, we may expect next year  a great extension of the already  steadily proceeding development of  one of the greatest coal fields in the  world. Mr. Cowan asserts that o ving  to the more advantageously situated  locality of the syndicate's property, he  will be able to mine and produce coal  mote cheaply than the Crow's Nest  Pass company. We do not, however,  believe that Crow's Nest shareholders  have any cause to fear for their future  dividends.  THE UNITED STATES CENSUS.

Haynes, second daughter  of the late Judge and Mrs. Haynes,  formerly of Osoyoos, was married to  Mr. Richard H. Parkinson, C. E., of  Fairview. The Rev. Henry Irving,  M. A., (Father Pat) officiated-at the  marriage ceremony which took place  in the home at Fairview, of Mr. and  Mrs. C. A. R.Lambly, the latter being  the bride's older sister. There we're  about 25 relatives and friends present  including the bride's mother, Mrs.  Dowding; her'aunt, Miss Pittendrigh,  of New Westminister, and her younger  ist er, Miss Susie Haynes, who lately  e turned west from Montreal. The  last-named was bridesmaid, and Mr.  Featherstonbaugh, the groom's business partner, was best man. The bride  looked charming in a fawn cloth travelling dress which was-trimmed with  white silk. She'wore no hat but had  orange blossoms very prettily arranged in her hair. The bridesmaid  was attired in a white dress trimmed  with pale blue. Mr. I.ambly gave the  bride away.  After the wedding breakfast a reception was held and then, late in the  afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Parkinson  started    for    Keremeos,   where   they  - spent a short honeymoon at the house  of Mr.'E. Bullock-Webster, which had  been kindly placed at their disposal.  They will make their home in the district temporarily at Keremeos and  probably at Fairview afterwards.  The presents were numerous, coming  -from Victoria, "Vancouver, New Westminister, the Similkameen, Okanagan,  and Boundary districts, in all of which  the parents of the bride were well and  favorably known. The Times .extends  its'"���heartiest congratulations to Mr.  and Mrs. Parkinson and wishes them  long life, happiness and prosperity.

I C. 2nd Hand Store..   tf  With reference to the scheme which  is just now being cpnsidered by the  minister of mines on the exploration of  of the metalliferous country of the  Kootenays by the aid'of a government  diamond drill, Mr. H. E- Neave, M. E.,  has supplied the Rossland Miner with  the following figures:  He states that the cost of a plant to  bore 1,200 feet would be in the vicinity  of $5,000, but that the'cost of working  should be under $4 per foot. Taking  statistics "from various parts of the  United States he declares that the cost  of boring 12 holes from 200 to 800 feet  in length each, totalling 5,957 feet was  $14,839.62, or $2.49 per foot. This included labor, superintendence, bits re-  repairs, waler, extras, freight traveling and carbons.  In northern Michigan two holes  totaling 634 feet, two 360, six 1,350, two  -611, six 2,091 feet, or.18 holes totaling  5,043, cost to $2.60 per foot .*. very hard  ground. In Colorado 567-* feet weie  bqred at 4.4 cerjts per foot.  The cost depends _^ gopd de^l. says  5#r. Neaye, on tfce length of standpipe  used. The smaller drills7 suggested  would be either hand or horse power.  CROW'S  NEST PASS COAL  MIPjES,  J^r, Clarence J. McQua.g, of Montreal, said lately to a representative ol  the Moutreal Gazette: "W�� visited  first the mines of the Craw's l^est  Qo&l company, near Fernie, in I-just  Kootenay, and were surprised to see  how much had -been accomplished  there during the past year. Mr. Wilson, the general manager, is systematically preparing for the enormous  output which will be necessary for the  company's coke and coal. Although  there are more than two hundred ovens  in full blast, five times that number  will not be able to supply the demand  at the end of the present year, when  the Trail, Hall Mines, Northport,  Grand Forks and Greenwood smelters  . are in full blast. The smelters at  Great Falls, Montana, are using this  coke in preference to all others,, and  would contract for the entire output.  The coal is of a superior quality for;  steam purposes, and is used'by the p.  P.. R. for their engines. As the quantity of coal js inexhaustible, and the  facilities for handling it will be as perfect as any other coal mine on this continent, when Mr. Wilson completes his  scheme of development and mining,  the coal and coke can be produced at a  very low price, and as the demand will  increase almost as rapidly "as the output can be increased the company will  undoubtedly become one of the great  Industries of tjie Do^iiflio-}.  THE HOMEWARD MARCH.  A DENIAL.  To the Editor:���In an article written under the name of R. W. Northey  in the Rossland Miner of August 15,  very unfair allusion is made to-some  competition there was over the re-location of a claim at the he-id of Cetlar  creek, near the Similkameen valley.  For reference and reproduction, I quote  from the portion of his article in question and trust you will be good enough  to give me space sufficient to contradict  some of the statements therein.  The article reads: "Last week two  different parties met at a certain claim  at the head of Cedar creek for the purpose of restaking it, the party of the  second part���the last to arrive���put  their watches on thirty minutes so as  to get their posts up first. At 11:30,  local time, they put up their stakes in  spite of the protests of the party of the  first part, who had the correct time  from Olalla; at 12 o'clock the others relocated the claim. Next day they uncovered' a ledge of copper sulphides ten  feet wide. There will be a lawsuit  over the affair unless the parties come  to a" settlement out of court."'  I judge that my partners and I are  the parties of the second part, as he  states we .got our stakes piantcd first  (this is the only truthful admission he  makes) and as he, Mr. Northey, and  his partners were the only others present, they must evidently be the parties  of the first part alluded to, who, according to his article;were so thorough'  ly immaculate in their method of. procedure. In relating the circumstances  he proves his veracity is of a very  doubtful nature, as he glaringly states  of us that which is absolutely untrue  in three instances, namely���that we  were the last to arrive on the ground,  that we' put our watches half an hour  ahead,-and that we staked the claim 30  minutes ahead of the right time. We  cannot allow those assertions to pass  without emphatically 'denying each  and all of them as being false and  state that-we are prepared to defend  the title that is vested in us whenever  Mr. Northey, or any one else, think  they have any points that will give  them weight in bringing their legal  guns t�� bear on us. We are thoroughly  satisfied with our position as we.feel  content that we have acted up to the  spirit of the regulations in every respect in the. staking1 of this claim.  ���FQI--N Msiki/ejohn.

Semlin was elected  as permanent chairman, and Mr. C.  Morrison, of Nelson, secretary. The  chairman, thanking the convention for  his selection as chairman, made a  short address, pointing out the difficulty in representing such a vast constituency, but expressing the belief  ��that-the-party_:ha_4j!ietij^o_c^u^^in_  the seat.  On motion, Messrs. Semlin, Ellison,  and Houston were appointed a commit-  1ee on credentials. The committee reported on 209 delegates present', or represented by proxy.  On motion, Messrs. Mara, Green,  Ellison, Houston and Macneil were appointed a committee to draft resolutions, and the convention adjourned  till 3 o'clock p. m.  On reassembling the committee reported the following resolutions which  were unanimously adopted: ��  "We, the delegates of the Liberal-  Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency in cohvention assembled,  reaffirm the principals of the party,  aud more particularly that cardinal  principle, namely protection of home  industries, and ask that that principle  be carried out, so that all sections of  thc country shall equally share its  bene Tits. The one industry on which  the prosperity of this constituency almost wholly depends, is mining, and  we believe that our mining interests  are as safely entitled to protection as  the manufacturing'* interests of eastern  Canada:  "Therefore, we advocate that the  duties on lead and lead products be increased, so that they shall be as high  as those now imposed by the United  States on the same articles:  "That, whereas, the output of the  precious metal-mines- of Canada, is  largely increasing, we' favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie  in circulation shall be that of our own,  instead of that of a foreign country. *  We advocate the restriction of the  immigration of Chinese and Japanese,  and all classes of people who cannot  become good citizens of the Dominion  of^Canada, and suggest the adoption  of the principles of the Natal Act.  "British Columbia has not now the  representation in the Federal Parliament that she is entitled to; therefore  we advocate that when the redistribution of seats is made, this constituency  shall be given representation according to its population.  "We think that it augurs well for the  success of the party that Hon. Hugh  John Macdonald has decided to leave  the field of provincial politics, to take  part in the larger one, that affects the  people of the whole of Canada."  Mr. J. Houston moved, and Mr. R. F.  Green seconded,, the nomination of Mr.  A. H. Macneil.  Mr. J. M. Robinson and Dr. Morris  nominated Mr. Price Ellison,  Messrs'. F. J. Fulton and W. W. Rog.  ers nominated Mr. J. A. Mara.  Messrs. H. Bentley and A. H. Mac-  neill nominated Mr. R. F. Green.  Messrs. Ellison, Mara and Green all  declined nomination, and expressed .a  desire for the nomination of Mr. A. H.  Macneill, which was then made unanimous.  Mr. Macneill accepted the nomination and promised to do his best to  carry the constituency. He made aii  excellent speeGh, and was warmly applauded.  The following were'then appointed a  committee on organization: Messrs.  A. W.Ross, J. McKelvie, Starkey, J.  McKane and F. J.
