Other Matters Discussed.  *  ^ESTIMATES GIVEN POR TIN R00FING.2SS ���  9 *  29*********9*****************************************  An important meeting of the council of the Board of Trade was held in  the secretary's office Tuesday afternoon, with President Galloway in the  chair and Messrs. J. J. Caulfield, Wm.  Law, J. Anderson, Thos. McDonnell  and Duncan Ross present. Mr. McDonnell called attention to the great  inconvenience experienced by those  having business relations with thc  Myers creek country, owing to the circuitous routa along which the mail  travelled at the present time. Although Bolster is not more than 25  miles fr��m Greenwood, the mail goes  by way of Spokane and the Columbia  river in order to reach. Bolster. He  thought that by proper representations  to the postoffice officials, an international mail service could be established  between Rock Creek and Bolster, inasmuch as there were mail stages to  those points now. The board by resolution instructed the secretary to place  the factsbefore the postoffice officials,  with a view to securing the desired  service.  Anthony J. McMillan wrote the  board asking for 25. copies of annual  repert-for distribution in the old country.' These were forwarded to Mr. McMillan. ... _- :  * Duncan Ross drew the attention of  the council to tht-'act* that the anauar  meeting of the Associated Boards of  Trade would be held here in January,  that*the two smelters would likely be  completed then and that it would be an  excellent time to secure business men  fromall over the province in the- city.  He suggested that thc Greenwood board  take the initiative in. _ securing the  amalgamation of the coast-boards with  the Associated Boards of Eastern  British Columbia and moved a resolution asking permission of the exeecu  tyve of the Associated Boards te allow  the Greenwood ��� Board to invite repre"  sentatives of the coast .boards to be  present at the annual meeting for the  purpose of discussing the suggested  amalgamation. The resolution -was.  carried. - The coast boards will also be  communicated with, in order to ascertain if the members would patronize  a��jexcursion to the city. A similar invitation has been Bent to the* Spokane  Chamber of Commerce.  I    The Board endorsed the suggestions j  con.ained   in   the following communications from the Vancouver Board of  Trade:  Vancouver, B. C, Oct. 15, 1900.  The Secretary, Board of Trade, Greenwood, B, C:  "Dear Sir:���At a meeting of this  board held ou the Sth ins.1*, the report  of a special committee which was appointed some time ago on the subject  of "Insolvency L" fislation" was received containing die following suggestions:  " 'That the board write the Board of  Trade in one of the leading cities in  each province asking them to secure  the co-operation of all local Boards of  Trade in obtaining the promise from  each candidate forthe Dominion house  that he will support any equitable  bankruptcy bill which may be intro  duced during the next session.  " 'Your committee does not feel that  this is in any sense a political question but one that every business man  -fta the Dominion should insist on being  a plank in every candidate's platform.'  "Acting in accordance with this report, I would respectfully ask that you  should bring this matter before your  beard with a view of obtaining their  co-o*peration, and favorable endorsement; and I" would further request that  your board should urge the same upon  the ��� other Boards of Trade in this province.

C:  "Deah Sir:���At a meeting of this  board held on the 9th inst.,the annexed  resolution was passed, and I was instructed to forward you a copy of the  same:  " Whereas, There is now established  in each of the principal cities of this  province a Board ��f Trade which, in  addition to questions of general commercial importance, has its own special  local interests "to consider and uphold.

President Galloway-brought up the  question of establishing a permanent  mining exhibit in the city and he with  Mr. Anderson and the secretary were  appointed a committee to take the  necessary steps towards securing the  same.  MTTDT.l?DFn  JJL U IO/ XT11 Lr|J7  Samuel Feora Meets a Violent  1 Death in Greenwood.  ROBBERY WAS THE OBJECT  Carried About $1,200 on His Person  and This Has Disappeared���Evidence at the Coroner's Ina uest.  . Since its inception, four years ago,  Greenwood had a record untarnished  by any serious crime until last Wednesday when Samuel Feora, an Italian,  was murdered in a log cabin near the  railway station.. The murderer escaped  and there is still no trace of his whereabouts.  Feora was a section laborer. He  lived with his son,.a lad about 18 years  of age, in one of the log huts at the  foot of the hill near the railway station. All the information that the  police have been able to gather was  told at tne inquest held by Coroner  Jakes Thursday afternoon, the following ibeing the jury: James Kerr (foreman), Robt. Leach, David Beath, I.  Robeit Jacobs, Berry Youill, W. O.  Wright^ The jury visited the cabin  and viewed the" body. Dr. Foster  made a post-mortem examination and  in giving his evidence stated that the  man was about 5 feet 4 inches in height  aad about 50 yea. s of age. He found  two bullet wounds in the head. Both  wounds ware charred so that the shooting must  have  been done  at  close  found,  o'clock  usual.  range. One of the bullets was embedded iu the brain but he was unable  to find the other.  Chief McLaren told of having been  called by telephone from the railway  station and informed that there was a  case of either suicide or murder there.  He informed the coroner and together  they went over aud found the body on  the floor of the cabin. There was no  money in his pockets.  Emanuel Poiston was the next witness. He. is a section man and lived  in the cabin in which the body was  When he came home at 6  he found his door locked as  On lighting a candle he found  blood on the floor and further investigation revealed a man's hand exten  ing from underneath the bed. Becoming frightened he called for help-  and Joe Feora, the murdered man's  son, came to the cabin. He drew the  body from underneath the bed and was  horrified to find his own father.  Emanuel went to the section foreman,  Mr. Robinson, who telephoned the  police. Emanuel then gave the only  possible clew to the murder. About  five weeks ago a stranger came to his  cabin and said he was from K .rthern  Italy, Emanuel's home. He is known,  as French Joe and speaks both French  and Italian. Joe wanted to borrow  money from Emanuel but he refused  to lend. Joes had a key for his cabin  and he often, upon returning home  from work, fourid the stove warm and  his store of provisions considerably reduced. French Joe flourished a revolver and, Emanuel told him that  Italians from northern Italy did not  carry guns or revolvers. He saw French  Joe until ten days before the murder.  A. H. Robinson, section foreman,  gave evidence of telephoning to the  police and said that . the deceased  worked for him Wednesday morning  but did not turn up in the afternoon.  Joe Feora, son of the deceased, described the incidents leading up to the  discovery of his father's body and then  stated that his father had between $1,-  100, and $1,200 in his pocket. He  searched pockets but could find no  money which he carried in his pants  pocket. No one knew but himself tha  his father carried money but as he was  a saving man people would suspect  that he had money. French Joe came  to their cabin five.weeks ago. Did not  know him before. He said he had  come from Butte; was broke and asked  for Italians from northern Italy. Joe  took him to Emanuel's cabin. Joe  saw him the Sunday previous to the  murder at Anaconda. He said he had  a contract at the Mother Lode. Another Italian, Antone, saw Joe on the  morning of the murder.  The jury brought in a verdict of  murder by some person or persons unknown. Both the city and provincial  police are working on the case. They  are endeavoring to locate French Joe.  The funeral of the deceased took  place on Friday from Gulley's undertaking establishment to the Greenwood  cemetery.  ROBBED THE  POSTOFFICE  Grand Forks -Postoffice _Rofefced_of  $3,000 Cash,  Constable D. J. Darraugh was in the  city from Phoenix on Monday on his  way to Grand Forks to investigate the  robbery of the postoffice at that place.  The robbery occurred on the Wednesday of last week previous to Thanksgiving day. The robber secured $3,-  000 in Eastern Township Bank bills-  one package containing S2.000 and the  other $1,000. The 52,000 package had  been sent on the day of the robbery  from the Bank of Montreal here to the  Eastern Townships Bank at Grand  Forks, it being customary for banks to  send bills received to the bank which  issues them. For similar reasons the  Bank of Montreal, Winnipeg, had sent  $1,000 to the Grand Forks bank. In  the absence of a safe, the registered  packages were placed in a drawer in  thc postoffice. The burglar was evidently acquainted with the postoffice,  as he used a pass-key and disturbed  nothing excepting the package taken.  Pcstoffice Inspector Dorman is in  Grand Forks investigating the robbery.  He and the officers are. very reticent,  but it is understood they have a clue to  the guilty party.  This is the second robbery of the  Grand Forks postoffice. The time previous sacks of mail were taken.  AT THE  SMELTERS  Both the Greenwood Smelters Nearing Completion  BUILDINGS BEING ERECTED  The Two Furnaces Running at  the Granby Smelter���Mint For  Canada ��� Ironsides Buys More  Drills���Tam o' Shanter, a Dead-  wood Property Experted.  A special meeting of the city council  was held on Monday morning. Mayor  Hardy intimated that if the council  would rescind the resolution that-'the  sidewalk opposite the Rendell building  would not be interfered with, he would  sign the agreement settling the Rendell case for $5,000. The council rescinded the resolution and then the  mayor refused to sign the agreement  until the sidewalk is lowered. There  was no regular meeting of the council  Monday evening.  Work on the two Greenwood smelters  is progressing satisfactorily and by  the first of the new year, it is reasonable, to suppose that they both will be  treating ore. The buildings are well  under way and delays, if any, will be  occasioned by the non-arrival ot machinery. This contingency is not  likely to arise, as both companies have  assurances from the manufacturers  that the plants will reach here before  the j time already announced through  the columns of the Times.  At the British Columbia Copper  company's smelter, signs of the finishing touches are many. The big 'dust  flue 'is all completed, the large floor for  'coke and ore has all been laid down,  buildings have been painted, and in  fact everything is in readiness for the  installation of the plant. 'Mr. Johnson  has \ received word that carloahs of  boilers, smoke stacks, sampling" ma-'  cbinery has^ been shipped and should  arrive here shortly, in fact all the machinery, about 15 cars, has been completed and sheuld be here in a short  time. .  At the Laidlaw smelter,, the retaining wall, 152 feet long and'12 feet high,  is completed," and the sills have been  laid'for the ore bins which will be inside the main building. Carpenters  are busy framing ths big timbers for  the main building. Bricklayer's'have  started on the" flue dust chamber. C.  P. R. Engineer Vance is locating'the'  spur lines to the smelter. The flume  will' .be started in a day or two. A  -small dam will be constructed on Boundary "creek to give the necessary head  to the water.  The* Granby smelter has shipped 32  carloads or about 600 tons of matte to  matte to the New York refinery. The  valtte of the matte is said to be $160  per ton. The two furnaces are now  running full blast. Last week a record run of 624 tons in 24 hours was  made by the furnaces. It is reported  that during his visit east, Mr. Graves  will buy a matte converter.  t x ,  Hon. W. S. Fielding, Canadian  minister of finance, in a campaign  speech delivered__in_ _Montreal,r __an-_  nounced that the Canadian government had obtained the consent of the  Imperial government for the establishment of a branch of the Royal Mint in  Canada., The mint will coin all,the  Canadian gold required, the balance of  the Yukon and British Columbia product being made up into British sovereigns.    R. P. Williams, representing the  Jenckes Machine company, has sold 15  new drills to the Old Ironsides company-    A, Mcintosh, a mining engineer of  Nelson, experted the Tam o' Shanter  mine in Deadwood camp, this week.  This property is being developed by a  Nelson syndicate who have it under  bond.  TELEPHONE LINE  Completed Betwern Bolster and Wil-  bur.in the Okanagan Country.  Thos. Donald, superintendent of construction for Davey & Donald, came in  from Brewster today and reported that  this evening there would ..be telephone  connection with any point in the Okanagan country down to Wilbur. The  wires have all been strung and J. B.  Donald is along the line placing telephones at the different centers. The  line gives communication with Bolster,  Molson, Oro, Loomis, Brewster, Wilbur and other points in the Okanagan.  That country is being rapidly developed  and as the Columbia Telephone company have direct connection with  Greenwood, Rossland, Spokane and  other financial and business centers,  the line ought to do a large business.  .

One Albi, charged  with shooting McArthur iu  Rossland,  was found guilty of shooting with intent to.do grievous bodily harm. When  the prisoner was asked if  he had anything to say why  sentence  should not  be passed upon  him,  he replied:    "I  .'.an't get justice here."    The learned  judge, replied that he had no business  to   make such  a statement,  as in his  opinion the jury had been generous in  reducing   the  count   from    the   more  serious: crime   of. attempted   murder.  Continuing he said'the  verdict practically meant a man had no business to  ���se'a" weapon.   No  man was justified  m carrying a pistol,  save  in the hills,  for   in   the  towns all were protected  i^ainst violence and robbery.    Heseu-  enced   the prisoner  to five years imprisonment.    While there are possible  exceptions  to the  rule  laid down by  Justice  Walkem,  it is only under exceptional circumstances  that a man is  justified in carrying a  pistol in   this  country.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24, WOO,  GREENWOOD'S  TURN.  Phoenix is now enjoying the reaction occasioned by the successful operation  of  the Graves  smelter and the  consequent employment of the greater  number of men necessary to mine the  ,600 tons of   ore that is being hauled  daily     from     the     Miner - Graves'  properties   to  the  smelter.    As   the  capacity   of the smelter is increased  and   more   ore   is   required from  the  mines, a still greater number of men  will  be  employed  who   will help to  maintain    an._. increased   number   of  those who live on their earnings, viz.:  Merchants,   lawyers,    doctors, ' hotel  men, in fact all classesof professional  men.   Competition is so keen that it is  idle to suppose that those already in  Phoenix or any,other mining town will  enjoy a much larger measure of prosperity  because of the employment of  more men in' the mines.   The profes  sional men will increasejust as rapidly  as the laboring men, dividing the trade  and the profits of engaging in business.  Business is unusually'good when the  proportion of-business men to the producing classes is small and dull when  this proportion is too large.   Business  has an ugly habit of regulating itself  to the requirements of the country so  that it seldom happens that an individual  or   a class can. sit down and  watch   big.  profits rolling, their way.  They must hustle and rustle to keep up  with the other fellow.-  The growth of the towns have been  more rapid than the development of  the mining districts tributary to them.  ~ There were "toomany- business houses-  for the volume of business to be transacted/and consequently all felt that  they were passing through a period of  dull times. It was simply because  there was not enough business to go  round and the individual- business  man made special and unprofitable inducements to try to get what business'  there was from his competitor.  The employment of a grearer num-,  ber of men in Phoenix has evened  up the proportion, but if the report  goes out that things are "lovely there,"  "that it is the only town in the district," and "that other towns are not  in it with Phoenix," there will be a  rush of men looking for business openings and a repetitiou of the dull times  of last summer will be thc result.  It is  now  Greenwood's  turn to feel  the reaction.   The  two   smelters   arc  nearing completion.   They  will be in  operation   within   ninety   days.   The  mines that will furnish them  with ore  will employ  more men.   The opening  up   of   the   West Fork country  by a  wagon   road and the increased trade  from that section will all have a tendency to create a larger volume of business.   During the summer we suffered  the   pains of growing too fast.    It is  not a dangerous disease and one ��� that  time will cure.  Greenwood is more happily situated  than the other towns; inasmuch as it  has several sources, from which to  draw trade and a dullness in one particular branch does not seriously affect  the town. It- was for 'this reason that  it did not feel the. dull times as seriously  as its neighbors. While some people  sneer at the statement that Greenwood  is the mining-, commercial, smelting  and financial center :of the Boundary  district, the very fact that it is all this  gives it a prestige: that one of these  virtues alone would not bring.  , x> ���   -  ���  "**  THE MAN WITH THE GUN.

For the  past two or three weeks mining* has  not received tha.t attention which it  deserved, being' side-tracked naturally  by the opening-...of the reserve. This  latter event, while itdid not come up  to expectations, stiil.leaves' room for a  great improvement in a general way.  By next summer the farmers who live  around Bolster will supply ,the camp,  whereas now all edibles are shipped  from the Okanagan. "' Farm products  will be chea.pened.thereby.  TIIK REVIEW.

There .yet remains  but about 60 feet of -tunnelling" to be  done to -,tap the main lead, and after  that is done the company, so it is reported, .will' place a mill on the property.. Already a great deal of attention has been directed towards this  property'which is the''r__6st completely  developed one of the camp.  BUCKHORN.

Everyone is looking forward to a  good winter in mining circles. The  Myers Creek district is beginning to  receive more than the ordinary amount  of attention from outside, quarters and  --thistogethet-ywithy^  who were alert ���for"^ investments consequent Upon the 7opening* of .the' reserve leads everyone to believe that  more money will be spent this year,  than for that of any'time past. .  THE V. V; &E. RAILWAY.  the  The' Prospects of Constructing  y        Roaiv 7"'*  The announcement that Messrs. Wm.  Mackenzie and D. D: Mann, the well-  known railway contractors and operators, with Mr. Hugh Sutherland, ex-M.  P., were on.their way to the coast, has  created a little excitement in railway  as well as mining and other business  circles. Mr. Mackenzie arrived yesterday in his private car of the Canada  Northern railway, and proceeded to  Victoria in the afternoon says the Vancouver World.  It is known that Messrs. Mackenzie'  and Mann about three years ago secured, upon certain conditions, a controlling interest in the V. V. & E. Ry.,  and that in the early summer of 1898,  the company having secured from the  government the promise, based upon  an order-in-council, of a subsidy of $4,-  000 per mile from the coast to the Columbia river, a distance then estimated  to be about 400.miles as the crow flies,  began operations at Penticton j where  a considerable staff, with railway con-  struotjipn plant,., was employed. Also  that a start was made'upon the line in  the vicinity of-** Abbotsford*��xld Htint-  ..ingdon in the direction of. :Chilliwack.  But no sooner had the Semlih-Cottdn-  _Martin government attained ; to power  than the order, in-council, granting {he  subsidy referred to, was dissolvedr and  operations, consequently,. had'.to be  stopped. Since then,' periodically,  there have been "rumors of the revival  of the  project.  The compariyjiave a  Dominion as well as provincial charter,  and it is believed to be one of considerable value. , *  It is generally understood that negotiations* between the owners of the  charter represented by Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann and other railway magnates, have been in progress for some  months past, and the hint was dropped  by Hon. Richard McBride at the opening of the Chilliwack fair, to the effect  that he expected that .within 12 months  operations on a railway through the  valley would begun. Then there are  the utterances of Mr. Tatlow, made at  the Board of Trade here a few evenings since, in \which he hinted that  there was someScheme' incubating for  the revival of the project, and an early  start being made thereon. *It is likewise alleged that the government and'  a majority of -its supporters in the  legislature, favor the revival of the  granting of the subsidy of $4,000 per  mile, as well as giving such other assurances to the.company as will result  in a start, in the way of surveying and  locating the line, at least, being made  at an early date.  -It. is generally tinderstopdthat had  it hot been for the unfortunate break  which took place in Ottawa in the  spring of 1898 between the promoters  ofythe' enterprise, and others there, in  all .probability the line would have  beenwellunder way from the coast to  the interior ere this.   ���������������������  Those who are familiar with the  country aver that there will be no  serious engineering difficulty encountered tn securing a suitable route for a  line across the mountains, in the  vicinity of Chilliwack in the direction  of the Similkameen country, and- this  being assured, while the C. P. R. iqay  construct their projected road from the  main line at Spence's bridge to a junction near Midway, the direct line will  likewise be buit.  All - sorts of rumors are at present  afloat, as they have been, at times, for  years past, as to American engineers  being in thc field surveying a route  for some American line, and the fact  that-a charter was "procured at the last  session of the local legislature, for a  line to run from Grand Forks in a  southwesterly direction towards Republic camp is being made much of.  The route for the line to Republic is  being surveyed by Mr. John Corryell  and another gentleman, both of'whom  are familiar with that section of the  country. The erection of the Granby  smelter- at Grand Forks, and it being  the nearest smelter to Republic camp,  naluralls secures the hearty co-operation not only of- the Americans but  British Columbians in that section of  the country towards, its completion..  The' C. P. R., however, with commendable enterprise, has built spu"  1 lines into every producing mine in the  vicinity of Grand Forks, Greenwood  and Phoenix.. So that the* mines there  are now quite accessible to the smelters  at Greenwood and Grand Forks.  The construction of the V. V. & Ii.  railway would assuredly mean a great  deal for the cities of Vancouver and  New Westminister, the district and the  coast generally, and we believe the  time is at hand when action should be  taken looking to the immediate construction of a line, which is certain to  be built, and that in the near future.  Whether the promoters, of the Grand  Forks and Republic railroad will be  able to procure a charter at the next  session of the House of Commons is a  matter of doubt. Upon every occasion  on which tb'* construction of what is  known as.tiV.j fettle River Valley Rail-  wliy^ame "iTp7.itThaiT:l}een^defeafed7iin  that body, and the overwhelmi.ng-.de-  feat which the promoters of .the scheme  sustained during the last two sessions  is regarded by many; as a certainty  that no charter will be granted enabling the promoters to. cross the Boundary line. It is asserted that, realizing the position in which it would be  placed by having the line built into*  Republic, arid that as a competitor  thereto,, the C. P. R. are likewise determined upon building a line into that  country and its mines, which would  act as a feeder for a portion of the  Columbia and Western, arid be a great  feeder to their smelter at Trail.  Those who believe that the visit of  Messrs. Mackenziearid Mann is solely  in connection with the work of construction of the V. V. &E. railway are  tinder a misapprehension. While they  have, as already stated, a controlling  interest in the scheme, there is much  yet to do in connection - therewith' ere  a start can be made: thereon, eyen iu  the matter of prosecuting a survey for  a line from the coast to Midway, or  such other point in the interior as may  be selected by the company, as its  point of connection with the railway  system already in existence there.  They have other interests in the province in the. shape of many mines, and  other industries, amongst the number  being the pwriership of the gas works,  in this city, in connection with which  it is understood considerable improvements and extensions are to be made.  There can be no denying the fact, how^  ever, that the Great Northern railway,  having already a considerable mileage  In the southeastern section of this province,' as well as the New Westminister  -Southern:branch, and its terminus being practically within 12 miles of the  city of Vancouver, and the unrivaled  ���haxbti-f which we have here, ithas a  strong desire to enter this city with it3  system. But whether the negotiations  which are said to be now in progress  will materialize, remains to-be seen..  In any" event it is quite apparent that  we are on the eve of another great  railway era of development, and  amongst-the other works to be taken  hold of* and that at the earliestypossi-  ble period, will assuredly be that of  -constructing a direct line of railroad  from the coast into the ititerior.

Fisher, of Nelson, gives the  following interesting details regarding  the reservation opening:  "The best part of the newly opened  country from a ranching standpoint is  the south end, comprising a comparatively narrow strip between Grand  Forks and Republic. The choice of  this section is about Curlew lake, and  over half of this district was located  by quaitz and placer patents before  the icserv.ition was opened to settlement by homesteaders. Colors of gold  can be found almost everywhere, and  with this as an excuse people staked  the country for placer claims, hoping  to hold the land after the date of the  opening. After Cm lew lake, the most  desirable districts were about Curlew  Toroda and Myers creeks and the section of the Okanagan valley included  in the reservation. About the creeks  the land is gently rolling and well  watered naturally with lots of fine bottom and farming land. In the Okanagan section the land is even richer,  but requires irrigation and water is  somewhat scarce. Outside of these  districts the land is only medium grade  or suitable for grazing and mineral  purposes.  "There are several towns in the new  country, but onlj one boom town.  This is Kipling, and it has established  a record for enterprising journalism.  Three minutes past the hour at which  the country became opened the first  issue of- the Kipling Weekly Sun was  issued, giving news of the town and  vicinity for the previous week. Lots  here range in price from IS cents to $5,  inside lots selling at the minimum  figure, while corners sell from a dollar  up. The cost of recording deeds and  lawyers' fees amount to $5 per lot.
