After a strong- legal fight the city  council have decided to settle the case  of Rendell & Co. vs. City by accepting  the plaintiffs' offer of $5,000. The  suit has been before the court for  nearly a year. It arose in connection  with the grading of Copper aud Greenwood streets last year. When Rendell  & Co. were about to build their handsome three-story block on the corner  they secured the street grades from the  then city ��� engineer and erected the  building. Afterwards the streets were  graded aud the buildings was left  about eighteen inches above grade.  Unable to secure any satisfaction or  redress from the council, Rendell &  Co. took the matter to the courts. The  trial took place before Mr. Justice Martin and a jury awarded $6,500 damages. Afterwards Mr. Justice Martin  confirmed the award. The city instructed E. -V. Bodwell. Q.C., to appeal from this decision. In the meantime ��� negotiations were opened with  Mr. Ralph Smailes, manager of Rendell & Go., and he made a definite offer  to accept $5,000 each side.to pay its  costsy" At Monday night's meeting  this offer offer was accepted and the  money will be paid as soon as funds  are available. All legal proceedings  will be stopped. Messrs. .Hallet &  Shaw..yepresented_RendeH'&. Co. in the"  w:A~jm-jm*M'--ri   -      --  B"ii_tyor "Hardy presided at the -meeting of the council and' Aid.

THREE   CRIMINAL   CASES  Defendaets  Are   Found  Guilty���Result  of the  County  Court  Trials    Held    In        ___  Greenwood.  The Most Successful Social Event of  -   the Year. ~-  The most hospitable hosts, a magnificent dancing hall, good music and  a jolly crowd combined to make the  Mother Kode dance the most pleasant  -and successful social event of the year.  The visitors were there nearly two  hundred strong. They came from  Midway, Phoenix, Greenwood and the  different mining camps. Tliey went  from'Greenwood by trainsyin rigs and  on horseback. The night was one of  Egyptian darkness, the road is not the  best and consequently some of those  who preferred a wagon road to a railway had some thrilling experiences.  One party got on the Copper camp road  and they were searching forthe Mother  Lode in the vicinitv of the King.,  Solomon mine. But everybody got  there and everybody had a good time.  The immense dining hall was gaily  decorated with flags and evergreens.  Jlr. and Mrs. Keffer, who assisted the  committee in welcoming the guests,  were ideal hosts. Prof. Kauffmann's  orchestra furnished the tftusic, and  under the capable direction of Mr. Mc-  Kinuoh, the floor manager, the floor  was kept busy until three in the morning. Tasty refreshments were served  by C. S. Bratton, the proprietor of the  mine boarding house. T^e committee  to whom credit is due for the success  of the evening were A. F. H. Meyer,  'the honorary secretary, John Angrig-  non, George D. Brice, T..A. Milde, C.  S. Bratton and Harry Clark.  The ball was given to celebrate the  opening of the new dining hall at the  in\ne, The building is the largest of  l^s kind in the country. It will con-,-  fortably se_it over 200 people..  There was a long list of cases in the  County Court held in the city hall  Monday and Tuesday of this week,  necessitating His Honor.Judge Spinks'  presence in the city for' a day longer  than was at 'first expected. Three  criminal cases tried under the Speedy  Trials Act took up considerable  time.  The criminal cases coming under the  Speedy Trials Act were Regina vs.  H/bucke's. This case arose out of the  seizure of 'the Granite and Banner  milf, for- infringment of the Customs  Act by Officer Sidley and by Sheriff  Pembertpn for debt. Certain parts of  the machinery were purchased by the  defendant, Louekes,; from Hayes.super-  intendent. of the Granite and Banner.  He was arrested on the charge of purchasing and receiving these goods. A  large number of persons were examined. Liouckes was found guilty by  the judge and sentenced to six months  imprisonment, Black for. the Grown;  Shawfdi Louckes.7  Doc Everett was arrested last winter  for breaking into -the .the St, Louis  hotel.'.-..He.-, "escaped-" from., the  Greenwood, jail.

Fletcher for $111; on account of  painting the Auditorium. .Reid had a  contract to paint the building and was  engaged in the work while "Mr.  Fletcher was absent in Victoria. He  tosk stock in"certain idle rumors that  Mr. Fletcher was not coming back;  quit work, rushed to a lawyer and  placed a* 4ein on the building and lot  pn-account of an . unfinished contract.  The evidence showed further that Reid  had been -paid more than was coming  to him by Mr. Fletcher. Judgment  was given in favor of Mr. Fletcher.  J. -P.  McLeod   for   Fletcher.    J7 R.  C.

Another Meeting to Discuss Its Location and General Construction.  If   attention   is   any   indication   of  merit, then   the   West  Fork   country  must  indeed   be   rich in   prospective  wealth. In several weeks it has been  the   topic of discussion  on the street  and at public meetings.    Last Thursday the mayor called a public meeting ���  to  discuss  the building  of the West  Fork road.     There was a lai ge attendance.   Mr. Thurston  was present and  he made as strong a case as possible  from his point of view.   Robt.  Wood,'  Mayor Hardy, Jas. Kerr, J. A. Smythe,  Clive Pringle, Duncan Ross, R. __}. L.,  Brown, W.

Mr. Herron, on the other hand,  claimed that this offer was made subject to ratification by his company.

The  result of all the discussion aud all the  telegraphing and correspondence with  the government will be that a good  wagon road will be built this year and  everybody, including Mr. Thruston,  will be satisfied. It is quite possible  that the country will not be irretrievably ruined if Mr. Thruston does not  get his way in all things. He is indeed an exceptiona1 man who is always right and there is a strong  probability that road making is not  one of the things which Mr. Thurston  can do with his usual dash aud finish.  DR. R.

Vi.nNI_SI.AY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1900.  THE WEST FORK ROAD.  A fire limit by-law should be passed  in the city. Reasonable time should  be given before the by-law is enforced  but through the by-law prospective  builders should be notified that after  a certain date only fire-proof buildings  may be built within the business area.  The enforcement of a fire by-law will  not only afford protection to those already owning buildings but will be a  distinct advantage to any who will  build under the by-law. The saving  on the cost of insurance on a brick  building will pay for it in less than  twenty years. Insurance on frame  buildings is over seven per cent., while  that on brick is about three per cent.  Unless a by-law is passed there is a  possibility that insurance will be made  so high as to be practically prohibitive.  If wooden buildings were allowed on  the vacant lots in the business portion  insurance companies might refuse to  take risks in the city.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

Everyone acquainted with the West  Fork country, is fully convinced that  it is rich in mineral resources and that  one of the first things necessary in its  development is a wag-on road. It is  more than a one man country or a one  mine country, and consequently it  would be a great mistake to allow  money appropriated to be expended on  other than a good wagon road. *  Every one appreciates Mr.Thruston's  enterprise and no one can quarrel with  him because, as he acknowledges, his  was actuated by purely selfish motives  -iri anything he did iu coauectlou with  the construction of the wagon road.  But others not having the large interests he has are wise in supporting  the construction of a permanent wagon  road for the district.  Mr. Thruston's plan was objectionable from many points of view. In  the first place the wagon road, such as  he proposed building, would be useless  excepting for a few months in the year.  Those best acquainted with the district maintain that the stream would  be impassable excepting for a few  months and consequently the large  number of prospectors and those de-  I*"velo:ping"properties^on-"a="small=-scale  would be handicapped in bringing in*"  supplies for many months in the year.  Individually their interests are not so  large nor so important as those of Mr.  Thruston, but in the aggregate their  interests and their trade are of greater  importance to Greenwood than those of  any one man.  There are many prospectors in that  country, also pre-emptors. who are rich  in prospective wealth but poor in ready  cash.   After   all  they are  the  backbone of any country.   They are not  afraid of hard work and they should  have the preference in public undertakings.    Mr.   Thruston  was   selfish.  His interests demanded a road built in  a   hurry   by   the cheapest l^bor that  could be secured.   His intention was  to  sub-let contracts to outsiders who,  when  the road was completed, would  move elsewhere taking with them the  money earned.    The prospector would  expend every dollar in the country and  even   if   the road did cost  more, the  benefit to the country would be greater.  The Greenwood Board of Trade were  fully   justified in   taking   the   action  they  did  in connection with this matter.   The very fact that the attention  of the government was directed to the  importance of the West Fork country  and to  the necessity of a good wagon  road was in a great measure due to the  representations  of the board and the  individual members thereof and when  there   was   any    possibility    of   their  efforts   to secure a good wagon road  being   frustrated   by Mr.  Thruston's  enthusiasm, the members of the board  were fully justified  in exerting their  infiuence towards having the government carry out its expressed intention  of building a good wagon road up the  West Fork this year no matter  what  the cost may be.  The meeting- Friday night while it  EDITORIAL, NOTES.  The Greenwood Miner is the authority for the statement that Mr. Thruston would have carried his point in  favor of the low water road if he. had  not worn high-water panties, which  shows the extreme danger of being  clothed in improper regalia when dealing with matters of great public moment.

Senator Mills at Bothwell:   Iti  1896 the Liberal party triumphed in  spite of these unfair methods of warfare.   We  have  endeavored   to undo  the wrongs that have been done, as we  promised  we   would.   But the senate  came to the rescue of our political opponents, and we have in some measure  failed in consequence.   Now we have  been  in power for four years.   What  have  we  accomplished?    Under  our  regime, and, let me add, in consequence  of  our policy," the   commerce of the  country, has   grown   in that time by  many millions of dollars greater than  in the eighteen years^that preceded it.  We^have-" endeavored-to ^promote the  settlement of the Territories, and in  this -we have had very great success.  We have endeavored to secure the good  will and co-operation of of ihe British  people and government in furthering  the interests of the people of Canada,  and in this way we have had a success  that has never been approached at any  time by our political opponents.   The  country has enjoyed unexampled prosperity.   Many of its waste places have  been occupied. "Its great natural resources have been developed, and so  the prosperity under the government  of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier has been immeasurably   greater  than under any  Conservative    government   that  pre-  cededed it; yet I look forward during  next   parliament,   which   will   be returned, I doubt not, to support us, for  even    greater   prosperity   than   that  which has recently been secured.   The  successes of the past four years are an  earnest  of   this.   The  progress   and  prosperity of the country_jduring our  regime have been unexampled in its  history.   The  industry of its population is augmenting their income to the  extent of many millions each year over  that which preceded, and if the settlement of the country, the increased area  brought   under   cultivation,    the   increased  amount of capital invested in  mining industries and the growth of  commerce  continue,   there can be no  abatement in that material progress so  well   begun.   No government in any  country has either earned or deserved  the good will and active support of the  people  more    undoubtedly   than   the  ministry of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and in  my opinion  theref is. no reason to believe that that support will be withheld.

The author of the "Public School  History of Canada." states in his closing pages; that over against the progress and development that the-Dominion has made since the Confederation, "must be placed the tendency of  so many of our young men to leave  Canada for a home in the United States,  the increasing difficulty our farmers  experience to make farming pay, and  the want of a large foreign market for  our manufactures." While this was  very true three or four j-cars ago under  the old Tory regime it is very far from  the truth today. Our 3'oung men are  no longer leaving Canada to find homes  in the United States, for the outlook  hero is as bright here as can be found  anywhere. Farmers are no longer experiencing a difficulty to make farming pay; the improved method taught  under government supervision and the  improved facilities for marketing products���better transportation and lower  rates���together with vastly increased  morkets, domestic and foreign, have  made the outlook for, the farmer very  different from what it was a'half a decade ago; and all of this is directly attributable to the improved business  methods of the present administration.  Lastly our manufactures are rapidly  obtaining recognition in the markets  of the world, thanks to the improved  facilities offered bv thc present government, while thc general confidence and  commercial stability which has been  engendered by the common-sense and  consistent course pursued by the government, has placed Canadian manufacturers in a position to make the  mosl of their opportunities. It is evident that oui- school books will soon  need revising.  GOOD ENOUGH TO HAVE SlORE OF.  The average rate of increose in Canada's total trade from 1878 to 1806 was  S3,700,000 per annum,the increase from  1896 to 1900, four years of Liberal administration, was at the rate of $35,-  500,000, or almost ten times greater.  Moreover the rate is steadily increasing year by year, and there is every  possible indication that a continuance  of, the present policy will mean a continuance of this splendid growth:. The  ��� Tories, however, threatenVto .ciiange-  all this, if they arc g-iven the chance,  and by returning to the old. tariff conditions of 1896; return to the old trade  "conditions" of stagnation and uncertainty.. The country is scarcely likely  to give them the opportunity.  I/IVING IN. GLASS HOUSES.  Hugh John Macdonald ��� apparently  imagines either that the people in the  east take no interest in western-poli  tics or that they have marvellously,  short memorias. He has been holding  up his hands in a paroxysm, of holy  horror over alleged irregularities in  West Huron and, Brockville, irregularities which the Tories have failed  to prove though. last year they spent  $10,000 of the public money in a vain  effort to ferret out evidence. Hugh  John appears to ha.ve forgotten his  "own'electionin-Wiunipeg-in 1896 where  although 6,000 ballot would have been  sufficient, according' to the regular  p ractice 10,000 were printed; at 2 o'clock  in the afternoon, however, all the bal-  lo ts had been used, and the polls had  to be temporarily closed until more  c ould be printed. The total vote polled  f or both candidates ��was 5,796. Up-  w ards of 4,000 ballots which were not  found in the ballot box when the votes  were counted were used in the contest.  These are facts proved under oath, and  not costing $10,000 to discover, either.  DIFFERS FROM-SIR ORACI/E.  The stern log ic of events is about th  only thing that' will, cor-Vihce Sire  Charles Tupper of error. In spite of  all indications to the contrary it seems  impossible at present to convince him  'hat there is anything practicable in  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's idea of colonial  representation in the imperial councils, but here is an expression of  opinion from, one of the "first half  dozen statesmen of thc empire "���and  even Sir Charles Tupper will not claim  higher credentials than that���"I wish  the colonies would clamor more for representation in the councils of the empire; if they did now I believe they  would get it, and it is in'the highest  interests of the mother country that  they should get it. The particular way  in which they get it is, in my judgment, a minor point." Of course it is  unfortunate that Sir Charles does not  agree with this view, but there have  been other occasions where Sir Charles  has withdrew his benigan approbation  and with about as much effect as was  produced by the famous curse of the  Archbishop of Rhemes ��� "nobody  seemed one penny the worse."

Lequime & Powers Will Wove;  Their Sash and Door  FACTORY FROM   MIDWAY  To Greenwood���Decided to Be More  Centrally Located to Secure Trade.  WIU Discontinue In Midway.  Greenwood is to have another sash'  and door factory. . Messrs. Lequime  & Powers have decided to remove their  factory from Midway to Greenwood;  so as to be nearer" the larger local  market for their manufactures and  more centrally located to secure the  trade of ot-ier Boundary towns. When  adding the sash and door factory to  their. large saw injjlat .Midway last  year they were urged, to: establish it at  Greenwood - instead but their faith in  Midway as a good place was"stillstrong  nough to influence them in favor of  at town; where they had for years  eeti in the saw^ mill 'business. At  t, however, they have been corn-  led by the force of circumstances to  agnize that Greenwood offers far  ter inducements to the manufac-  er, so they have determined, though  ctantly, to transfer their operate this town, anticipating that  r enterprise will meet with an ade-  ,te return' rather than result in  ...hilar continued disappointment to  ! j, &x.t hitherto attending their efforts in  .. /'lis connection.  Midway sash and door factory  building opefations. So they, have at  last concluded to give up struggling  against the ad vera conditions that seem  to be inseparable "from their Midway  enterprises and to try w.hat a change  of surroundings and conditions will  bring to them. "With things improving in and around Greenwood there is  little dpiibt as to either, the wisdom or  the timeliness : of their move to this  progressive town. That good luck may  attend their efforts here . will be the  hearty wish of those who appreciate  persistent energy and enterprise.  ft POWERFUL LOCOMOTIVE  Eor the Columbia and Western to be  Used Between Rossland and Trail.

Lequime & Powers will move it across  the line where they have a site for it  in a promising locality.   It is to be regretted that the pluck the members of  the firm have displayed in struggling  for  years   to   make a success of their  business at Midway has only involved  ttthem in heavy loss.   It is seven years  ice Mr. Powers brought in his first  iili and located it on the north  jf  Kettle river at what is now  . n of Midway.   A year later one  the   Messrs.   Manly   offered   him  'special inducements to remove it to the  '.then embryo town of Grand Forks, but  '.true to his first choice, he declined to  fio  so.   During   the  years that have  since passed ill luck has attended his  steps.  Floods in the Kettle river swept  awaj' tine mill booms and logs.   Later  when the mill was placed on Boundary  creek,   just   above  Midway,   fire  destroyed  first a lot of logs and afterwards the mill itself and with it, about  300,000 feet of sawn lumber.   Nothing  daunted the firm put in a big mill on  Kettle river and spent a lot of money  on  improvements  to enable them to  hold their logs during high water, but  here new difficulties met them  in the  shape of a. general stagnation in business throughout the district and the  consequent  almost total cessation of  From Trail to Rossland a train with  a 130 ton cargo is considered the capacity of any oae of the locomotives heretofore in use on that grade. But a  new, engine has been provided which  it is said will haul nearly three times  as much (312 tons) over the same route.  The engine is of an entirely new type  and is especially designed for hauling  heavy IbaCs over heavy, grades. It is  a slow locomotive,and over such a road  as that between this and the smelter  city is not capable of going faster than  four miles per hour drawing such a  load. Running light its speed is not  greater than ten.iniles atfhour.- Locomotive No. Ill is said;to be the first.of  its type in this country. It \yas designed and built by the Lima Locomotive and Machine company of Lima,  Ohio, and was built this year.  Whereas formerly all engines have  been driven by steam cylinders, whose  pistons are connected with the driving  wheels of great diameter, the new type  'has done away with both the forward  large cylinder and driving wheel. The  engine is carried on two trolleys of  four wheels apiece. The tinder is  similarly supported. These wheels are  unconnected and are all the same size,  a little over three feet in diameter. On  the right hand size of the engine every  other wheel, or the right hand forward  wheel of each trolley, is furnished with  a gearing inside its outer circumference. A shaft running forward and  backward from a point- by the cab is  fitted-with cog wheels fitting the gearing on the trolley wheels.. As the shaft  revolves so these latter are turned.  , * The motive power of the shaft is  supplied by three smallytriple expansion cylinders,on Jhejright of , the* cabU'  which act vertically, similarly, in.fact,  in direction to marine . engine. A  couple of. eccentrics get over the dead  point, acting in the same way as the  waighted side of the driving wheels on  the ordinary locomotives. "All this  gearing on-oue side of the engine tends  to make it lopsided, but this is made up  for by placing the boiler and" furnace  more to the left of the engine.  It may be gathered from the description that locomotive No. Ill is not a  thing of beauty, but as it does double  the work with the same coal conssmp-  tion and with half the labor, it is possible that it may be a joy forever.  Capt. Troup says that if this locomo-  motive is found to be successful the intention is to-order three others. One  of these will be placed on the route between0 Grand Forks aad Phoenix.���  Cascade Record.  right up to the mountain summits, 1,-  000 feet high, was water washed gravel  He had worked within a radius of 100  miles from Dawson and wherever he  went he found this gravel. No evidence occurs that glacial action is the  cause of the present alluvial deposit,  but apparently at some remote period  the whole country was low lying. At  this period the auiferous deposits occurred, and subsequently a great volcanic upheavel took place; thus the  golden sands are found at the,mountain tops, as well as in the creeks.  Mr. Bauer says that although the country is essentially a placer diggings,  the Stewart, Klondike and some of the  larger rivers offer a big field for profitable investment in dredging. In fact,  there' was no impediment whatever,  that he could see, to the successful  operation of dredging plants. The  rivers were uniform; there was no great  rise or fall; no floods: none of the disadvantages of the Fraser river dredging, and he thought, dredging would  be a great Klondike enterprise in the  future and a very profitable one.  i!ttt!IIi!!!

According to the latest information  in their possession, the gold commissioner's office at Dawson estimate that  royalty will be paid on'$i6,000,000 of  Klondike gold this season. This news  is brought from Dawson by W. A.  Bauer. C. _3._- who has just arrived in  Vancouver from the Golden North.  Mr. Bauer adds that it is generally  understood throughout the Klondike  cauntry that the actual clean up will  run up to $8,000,000 or 810,000,000 more,  or in round figures, $25,000,000 but  royalty will not be paid on more than  $16,000,000.  Mr. Bauer has been surveying in the  Klondike on a very extensive scale,  for the British American and other  big corporations, and he comes back  enamored of Canada's magnificent  birthright. Breaking through , his  customary professional reserve, Mr.  Bauer made the following statement:  "I have been in mining camps all  my life, pretty much all over the world,  but I never was anywhere where I saw  such evidence of the unlimited wealth,  such vast possibilities, such' magnificent opportunities for, the investment  of capital."  In speaking generally of the country, Mr. Bauer spoke first of its geological formation, the formation being  what geologists would call mica schist.

Two teams are engaged hauling ore  from   the   City   of   Paris mine-to the  Grand. JTorks    smelter.     They . take  r       about ten tons every other day.      r  Mr.   D.   Moore,   ore 'buyer fori.the  ,,:;��  '-Trail   smelter,   is    reported   to .have  .-.-'' sampled the Gold Drop mine, in Green-  .}'      wood   camp, last *week.   It is   hoped  -   that work will soon be resumed at-;this  '" Two four-horse teams are hauling  ore from the Athelstan mine, in Wellington camp, to the Winnipeg spur  whence it is shipped to the smelter.  A bunk house has been erected at this  mine so that the men do not now have  to live at the Winnipeg, as they previously had to do. 7 *  The ore bins at the Old Ironsides  and Victoria mines are being roofed  over. Similar, protection from snow is  to be provided at the Knob Hill bunkers. .A-commenceme"nt is shortly to be  made with the work of erecting more  cottages for men employed on the  Miner-Graves    mines      and    haying  families.  i    ���-������^���~Itis;.expected.-.tha.t_th.e-.B_..C.^min.eores  "������shipments.will this month total about  2,000 tons, possibly a little more. The  July ' tonnage was 2,000 tons and  August 1,500 tons. Shipping was interfered with during August by alterations and repairs to the main shaft iii  connection with the installation of a  safety platform cage, which necessitated a stoppage of hoisting for more  than a fortnight:  next month and the big hoist is due  for delivery on the cars at Sherbrobke,  Quebec, in a few days. ' '  The Canadian Rand Drill company  and Jenckes Machine company, represented by R. P. Williams, have received orders for four compressors the  same size as the L<e Roi. Three are for  the Dominion Coal company and the  other is for the B. A.-C, They have  also received an order for a hoist for  the Hall mines and a 12x15 hoistingen-  gine. Mr. Williams has sold the Cariboo mine what is known as baby drills.  These are to be used exclusively in the  mine.;. They weigh only 100 pounds  and can be handled by one man. The  Jenckes Machine company have just  closed an order for 100 of these drills  for the Le Roi mine. '..  The British Columbia Copper company have decided to sink the main  shaft of their Mother Lode mine, near  Greenwood, to the 500-foot level. The  present depth is 325 feet. This decision  .is of importance, since there is no shaft  in the Boundary district at present  down to the 500-foot level. The nearest  to that depth is the No. 2 shaft at the  Old Ironsides mine, iu Greenwood  camp. This new development at the  Mother Lode will be pushed on with,  so as to get the work as far forward as  possiblejb.efor^hee^^of the current  year, ,by which time new and larger  plant will have been installed at the  mine and stoping ore to supply the  company's smelter, how approaching  completion, have been undertaken on  a comparatively large scale.  A raise is being made from the drift  at. .the ���"80-foot level of the R. Bell, in  Summit camp. As this drift runs into the hill depth is gained, so at the  raise it is more than 100 feet from the  surface. Some nice ore was met with  in the drift but it was not continuous.  Ore of line quality occurs in the old  workings to connect with whicli the  raise is being made, so it is expected  that this shoot will be encountered in  the raise.  Tlie 10-drill duplex cross compound  condensing Rand compressor, recently  received at the Knob Hill mine, was  installed last week. It will be started  at work in the course of a few days.  It has all modern improvements so  will doubtless amply realize the most  sanguine expectations of the enterprising company that has added this fine  nmcliine to the comparatively large  plant it already possessed. A 4x15  feet air receiver was hauled up to the  mine from Greenwood last Saturday.  The British!'. Columbia Copper company will shortly have more power at  its Mother Lode mine than will there  be at any other mine in the Boundary  district, at least until other mines are  supplied with more boilers. There are  now at the mine two 100-horse power  and two 80-horse power boilers, and  there are two more Sp-horse power to  arrive shortly.
