The returned soldier was Geo. Holbrook who resides with his family at  Anaconda. He was expected home by  his family but the exact day was unknown and when he stepped off the  train at Greeenwood, only a few were  there to w.elcome him. Dressed in dull  colored, Kaki, he waa an object of interest as he walked from the station to  his home in Anaconda. But few people were even aware that Holbrook  was among- -the Greenwood boys who  went to South Africa. He was an old  soldier, having served with the Fifty-  eight British regiment for a score of  years. ' He was with Sir George Colly's  ill-fated expedition at Majuba Hill and  was" one of the 413 men who escaped  the slaughter. When the" recent war  broke out,' Hoibrook wag determined to  do'his share in wiping out the stain of  British defeat and regain the lost prestige of British arms in Boerlaud. He  went from here to Kingston and  secured a position with the C. Battery  Royal Canadian Artillery, under Major  'Kudoc--. Thsy sailed for .Africa -with  the second contingent.  ' He 'had plenty of opportunities for  gratifying- his desire of getting even  with the Boers and saw much active  service in the year he spent in South  Africa. He was with the column who  went to the relief of Mafeking. They  outmarched the commissary convoy  and for five days lived on horseflesh  before reaching the beleagured town.  After that there was plenty of fighting  at Rertzberg, Bloemfontein, Fraaes-  bourg and at Pretoria. At Sinekel,  Holbrook was wounded by a Mauser  bullet which confined him to the hospital for three days. *  "Mr. Holbrook is kept busy telling of  stirring incidents connected with the  war. He has nothing but praise for  the Canadian officers who understood  their business and who handled their  guns well. The men, too, made a re-  cordand they cherish the-enconmiums  lavished upon them by Lord Roberts  and Baden-Powell.  There is plenty of latent loyalty and  enthusiasm in Greenwood and Times  suggests that it find expression by  some public recognition of the return  of the first Greenwood man from the  war.  g��*��H��##��*ft.*��*��#*##69#��.#4*<|  9 ' '  9  9  JMJ-*.  |     In Great Variety  Popular Prices,  at  THE PATTERN  TELLS.

Unfortunately for them, the priest from East  Kootenay was in the city to hold services here on Sunday and he had some  experience, with them before. He  warned the people against them, stating that they were im posters. They,  however, to more effectively carry out  their plans went to the Catholic service  on Sunday. The priest ordered them  from the church and told the congregation something about their past career.  They left Greenwood for Phoenix, but  Constable Darrough had, been told  over the wjre to be on the look out for  them and they did no business in that  camp, The same women did the Rossland camp but were exposed by Father  Welch before they collected much  money. The people have been warned  against giving money to persons  dressed as nuns, unless they have  authority from some priest or lady  superior. ���*���  Books, Paper,   Office   Supplies.  AMALGAMATION.  Three Firms to   Unite in   a Joint  Stock Company.  The Russell" Hardware company,  Caulfield & Lament and W. M. Law &  Co. have issued a prospectus with a  view to amalgamation of the three  firms. The prospectus is for a joint  stock company to be known aB the  Russell-Law-Caulfield Company, Ltd.  It will have a capital of $100,000  divided into 100,000 shares of a dollar  each. The firms are amongst the  oldest and best established in the city.  The prospectus states that the three  firms in 1899 did a combined business  of $225,'000. The three firms will subscribe for $70,000 of the paid up stock  and the remaining $30,000 is offered to  the public at par.. It is confidently believed that a greatly increased and  constantly ' increasing?' business may  thus be transacted at greatly reduced  cost and hence at better-profits. The  present management of the existing  firms will be on the directorate of the  new concern, and the successful management of their present business is  the best guarantee of the effective conduct of the consolidation. Each of the  old firms will collect its own debts and  pay its own obligations and the new  firm will begin business without debt  of any kind.  BEAVERTON NOTES.

Morris, coroner, held an inquest upon an Indian  at Penticton, who, as noted last treek,  had been murdered on the previous  Saturday. The jury was made up as  follows: L. C. Barnes (foreman), S.S.  Bull, R. Jackson, G. Clark, J. Grattan,  S. Grattan and A. Grant. The verdict  reached was: "That the deceased,  Antoine, an Indian, came to his death  from blows inflicted on his head by an  axe in the hands ef one Edward Jack,  an Indian." The murderer is still at  large. There has been a great deal of  lawlessness among the Indians of Penticton for some time past, owing to tht  flagrant" manner" "in" which" the law  against selling intoxicants to them is  violated, and stricter police supervision-  is evidently badly needed in that section. Future trouble will hardly be  averted unless a resident constable is  stationed in that section of the district.       AN ELECTION CANARD.  J. J. Stephenson, bf Victoria, went  to the Paris exhibition and returned  with a tale of woe. Not satisfied with  making an ass of himself,* he endeavors  to give strength to assertions by Intro,  ducing the name of A. K. Stuart, who  represents B. C. at tbe exhibition. Mr-  Stuart is charged with stating that Mr.  Tarte had damned everything British  Columbian and was ready to come  home to record his vote against him.  Those who know Mr, StepheaBon, will  place but little credence in his story  and those who know Mr. Stuart will be  slow to believe that he gave expression  to the words Mr. Stephenson uses.  ARRESTED FOR FORGERY.  Chas. Cummings, of Grand Forks,  was arrested last week on a charge of  forgery. The complainant was E. A  Spraggett, the well known lumberman. Cummings is charged with using  a false telegram to influence Spraggett  in a lumber deal. CutnmingB was released on bail until next Saturday  evening when the-preliminary trial  will be held.  Next Tuesday evening there will be  a public meeting in the interests of W.  A. Galliher's candidature ia the Auditorium. Among the speakers will be  S. S. Taylor, Q. C, and A. L. Sifton  of Calgary, a member of thc legislature  in the northwest. Mr. . Galliher, the  Liberal candidate, is at present campaigning in the north with Frank  Oliver. M. P., of Alberta.  Splendid Copper -Ore Body  Encountered at  THE   100 -FOOT   LEVEL.  A New Fin& Made on the Remington,  One of tne Miser-Graves Syndicate Properties���Mining Notes  Special to the Times.  Ehoi/t, B. C, Nov. U.���The drift  which is being- run .from the 100-foot  level on the Rambler encountered the  ore body this week. Superintendent  Davis brought down some splendid  specimens of high grade copper ore  from the new find.  The Graves syndicate have struck it  rich again. A large body of rich ore  has been encountered on the Remington, near the K.Bell. This is a new  find and_ the work done during the  week shows that' the ore body is a  large one.  Business ia picking up in Eholt.  Next week a force will be put to work  erecting coal bunkers and engine  houses. Three car repairers will also  be stationed here.  MINim NOTES.  The Golden Crown mine has been  temporarily closed.  The Laidlaw smelter has secured a  contract for 2,000 tons of Carmi or*  from E. H. Thruston.  Wm. Yolen Williams.superintendcn-  for the Miner-Graves syndicate, has  returned' from his six- weeks' trip'to  other mining cities.  The Oro Denoro mine in Summit  camp is being puoaped out preparatory  to resuming operations. Tbe mine is  owned by the King Mining company.  It. has a splendid showing of high -  grade copper ore. It is reported that  Bt S. L Brown is negotiating for its  purchase.  Since the discovery of the richness  of Britannia ore the country tributary  to Howe Sound has been overrun with  prospectors. Some of them have  struck it more or less rich, but the  latest find is causing a stir. It is  nothing less than a foour-foot vein of  galena, and. according to information  received from parties who have examined the location the indications are  thai iho strike will in time be proved  to be a very valuable one. It was made  by two prospectors, Kenneth McDonald and Wulbnr Rugg, who have been  is the district over a year. The property is situated on the west shore of  the sound at a point about opposite  Watt *s Point, and is about three miles  inland. Last summer McDonald ran  across some good looking float and  after searching for some weeks managed to find the lead, which runs in a  northeasterly and southwesterly direction. At the time of location it waa  uncovered for a distance of 60 feet and  since then it has been strippped for 15  feet, making 75 feet In all. All indications arc said to point to a continuance throughout the length of the  claim, which has been named the  Daisy. The vein lies between porphyry  on the footwall and slate on the hanging, th* walls being nearly perpendicular. It is richest near the wall_i,  the pay streak on tbe foot being four  inches wide and that on the hanging;  six inches. The body is composed of  a slaty formation, but carries values  although to lesser extent than near the  walls. Assays from the footwall run  22 per cent lead, 2y% ounces silver, and  40 cents in gold. From the hanging  walls the values are 15 per cent lead, '  2J4 ounces silver and 50 cents in geld.  These assays were made from ore  taken from the cropping. The value  of the strike, if it proves as expected,  can be clearly seen, for the reason that  with tbe establishment ef smelters to  work Britannia ore the market for the  lead product wtyl be right at hand and  thc expanse of shipping to far off smelters will be entirely obviated.  M. J. Phelan came in from Rendell  today and reports that the road is  graded within two miles of Gorman  West's. Business is picking up at  Rendell and when Fisher's sawmilL  gets started lively times are expected ��� November' 14, 1900.  THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.

Duncan Ross  ..Editor.  s^*&n*T&?\.  <UN!ON  #b��jLABEI_>  "WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1900.  THE LIBERAL VICTORY.  The success of, the Liberal "party was  assured without taking into consideration the splendid record of the government. History furnishes no precedent  for the defeat of a government after a  successful war. Lord Salisbury and  1 Brummagen Joe" simply swept the  country because of the,South African  war. Their success was due to the  patriotic sentiment of the people. Had  the election taken place in the time of  peace the unsatisfactory state of domestic affairs would probably have relegated the present gover;ument in  England to the cold shades of opposition.  And so it was In-the-United. States.  The spellbinders could hurl their  strong denunciations against -' the  trusts, against the'iniquities 'of expansion but 'the" bombast of Teddy  Roosevelt was more taking* than the  matchless " logicof William Jennings  Bryan and the populace forgot the ills  of home politics in the exuberance of  their enthusiasm over. the success of  "Old Glory" in Cuba' and the Philli-  pines.  Canada waB.directly concerned  in  the South African war.    She sent her  best sons to the front to make a name  for themselves and add new lustre to  British   arms.    'Conservatives   could  rail about the government's tardiness  in sending the contingents and exaggerate  the ��� evils  of   the  eraergericy  rations, but the people were not fooled.  ��� They followed"precedent"and endo'rsed  the present government.  "There  were other reasons why the  ��� " Liberals were returned.   "While   it is  -quite true that bad times will come de-  > spite the efforts of a good government  ��� * and good times will continue against  the   influence   of  a  bad one, people  realize the fact that a wise and progressive government can take advantage :of .the tide that leads oh to ria,-  tional fortune and they dislike to make  a change at the Zenith of good times.  Providence     ordained     that    unprecedented  good.times should come to  Canada   with   advent  of the Liberal  government and  the electors did not  act contrary to the apparent wishes of  ��� Providence.. .  But the Conservatives owe that  overwhelming defeat to the miserable  campaign which they conducted. The  campaign was in the hands of Henry  Dalbyjonce editor of the Montreal Star,  and he'was simply a tool in the hands  of J. Israle Tarte. Every act of his  was campaign-food for the minister of  public works. Dalby thought that the  success of the .Conservatives depended  upon the- condemnation of. French  Canadians and his stupidity,received  its 'proper reward. He was evidently  encouraged in1 this style of warfare by  his aged leader who, met defeat in  Cape Breton. '   ��������� -  The jConservative party are-to be  congratulated in one respect,-they have  been rid of the blighting influence of  their leaders. The nest of traitors is  no mope; It is contrary to the spirit of  __ihe age to allow a, government too  long -.lease 'of power and with new  leader*- the Conservatives can certainly  hope for a greater measure of success  at the next election... . -  Taking^very thing into consideration the country is tp be congratulated  on the result of three general elections  held in Great Britain, United States  and Canada. There should now be a  general revival in business and a freer  money market.  BUTTE OR BRITISH ?  In the year of grace 1900, British  arms were forced 'to'.'-maintain the  "prestige of .'the British flag in South  Afffca. Canada, showing her love for  the mother country /.'sent her best sons  to fight for the Queen and Empire.  The war was a righteous war but it  was a war which aroused the jealousy  and hate bf other nations. In the  Unted States the Democratic party  were ..strong in their denunciation of  the British and equally strong in their  sympathy for the Boers. The Boers  maintained a hopeless struggle, encouraged by the belief that the success  of the Democratic party would mean  intervention. They believed that the  placing of a Democratic-president in  the White House would mean tiie assistance of the American nation in  tearing down the British flag from  where it was 'raised after much bloodshed. '���������  Among the stalwarts of the Democratic party is one W. A. Clark, millionaire mineowner, of Butte. Driven  from the senate .under charges of  bribery and corruption, he endeavored  with the aid of Butte.miners-to secure  the return oLa legislature, and a gov-  enor favorable to himself. In his work  he was aided by one, F. Auguste  Heinze.'-. This.;,ig-entleman is not un-  khown ,to��tJi.e people of British Columbia/ It.^a^hei^who boasted that he  had flimflammed the British Columbia  legislature... He disposed- of his valuable interests in this province and returned to Butte. : Unable to get rid of  the Rosslond Miner, he still owns it  and uses it not for the purpose of prompting the. interests of a country in  which he has no longer much-interest  but in promoting the political ambitions of F. Auguste. Heinze.  Clark and Heinze declared for. an  eight-hour a day in Butte and in their  own properties men are working-eight  hours. This action was. acceptable to  the Western Federation of Miners and  yery properly won for them the support of the working classes. But Mr,  Heinze went further. Mr. Chris Foley,  an executive officer of the Western  Federation of Miners, was a candidate  for the Dominion parliament in Yale-  Cariboo district. 7 Mr. Heinze directed  that his property, the Rossland Mirier,  should be exploited in the interests of  Chris Foley of the Western Federation  of Miners. Day after day the Miner  is doing its utmost; to secure Mr,  Foley's election. . ,     - ..  To loyal 'Britishers, to those who  honor the Union Jack, the situation is  simply intolerable. That F. Auguste  Heinze, an American Democrat, whose  party is hostile to Britain and the  supremacy of the British flag, should  dictate -to the free' and independent  electors, of Yale-Cariboo through his  organ, the Rossland Miner/is surely  repulsive td every patriotic sentiment  of a true. Britisher.7    .  Which shall it"be?    -   '"'���'���//''  Shall our actions be truly British or  shall they be inspired from'Butte?  BUILDING A CITY.  -��� Is Greenwood ^oing to-be a great  city? .That does not depend upon her  great natural advantages, nor upon the  illimitable - mineral resources of the  district tributary to, nor upon an excellent townsite. It depends entirely  upon her citizens. It is people who  make ,_ayto_w.n,ynot__nahire jnor EEoyi-  dence. A united.arid, determined people can make Chicago out. of a swamp,  and a people pulling different ways  without energy of local patriotism can  distroy .every. influence that go make  up a large city. .  The residents of Greenwood are lacking in some things. They are not sufficiently hoggish. They do not possess  that splendid selfishness that recognizes- no town but their own aud no  business man but those who hang their  shingles in Greenwood. People  are in the habit of seeing the two-bits  saved on a purchase at Timothy Eaton's  rather than the, dollars that.are lost to  the city and to them by sending for  goods to the east. The strong argument against the .Chinese is not made  up from prejudice or sentiment but  from business. They are industrious  and probably give a dollar's worth of  work fer every dollar paid them, but  75; per cent of the money is sent away  and.is lost to the country. The injury  done to a town by the Timothy Eaton  Chinamen is greater than those who  bank their money in Shanghai rather  than in Greenwood. ..- They are more  numerous and have larger spending  power. .  Seattleis without exception the most  striking;;example of what can be done  against adverse conditions by a united  and determined people. At one time,  not many years ago, Seattle was not  larger .than., Greenwood. Its future  was "assailed by Tacoma on one side  and Port Townsend on the other. . But  the people were the stuff that cities are  made of and they went in to win, and  they ..did win. They have not Timothy  Eatpg�� in the United States but they  have, jjheir Montgomery Wards whose  everjF.effort.is to.centralize wealth, and  power in Chicago to the detriment of  other "towns and cities. But the Seattle  people were united in. their determination, tp build up their town and a pledge  was prepared. .��� It was signed and kept  by every man and woman in Seattle.  .-    -''-���'      :^,'-.u--'t*J  It was to this effect: "Thai I pledge  myself to buy nothing on the outside  that can be purchased from the business men of .Seattle." If a similar  pledge was kept here,.the "town would  be 'benefitted thousands of dollars  yearly.  SPREADS LIKE WILDFIRE.  When things are "the best" they  become "the best selling." Abraham  Hare, a leading druggist of Belleville,  O., writes: "Electric Bitters are the  best selling bitters I have handled in  20 years." You know why? Most diseases .begin in disorders of stomach,  liver, kidney, bowels, blood and nerves.  Electric Bitters tones up the stomaeh,  regulates liver, kidneys and bowels,  purifies the blood, strengthens the  nerves, hence cures multitudes of maladies. It builds up the entire system.  Puts new' life and vigor into anyiweak,  sickly, rundown man or woman. Price  50 cents. Sold by Miller Bros., druggists.  NOTICE.  We beg to notify the public of Greenwood and vicinity thnt Mr. W.

" On coming in sight of said culvert, an  officer, who was'detailed to destroy it,  saw a party of men, evidently British  prisoners, leaving the town along* the  railway in the direction of Belfast.  Lord Dundonald immediately countermanded the order "for destroying the  culvert, aud returning to Strathcona'*  Horse, sent Lieut. Leckie (with Scrgt.  I_ockhart,"-Corp. Grogan and Ptes. Wil-  - Hams,O'Brien,'Simpson andMcKenzie  all of troop 'C Squadron),  to proceed  ���' into the valley (thousands of feet belo.v  us) to find out what the   enemy   were  ' about. The expedition savored of risk  and excitement,' fbr 'after   four . hours  .crawling along sheep-trails,  dragging  - their horses after them, the party found  -' themselves in a rav.ine on  the   left  of  the valley, and a trainload of Boers  streaming into the village about a mile  from them. To retreat up those steep  walls was impossible 'arid Lieut."  .Leckie, observing a farm house some  600 yards from them, decided to lie low  .until dusk. The Boers detrained, took  'the train behind a few trees and set  fire to it.   Then they placed some pick-  - ets on the. railway and road to the  ��� south, never suspecting   that   anyone  ~rwdul8"a'tfeinpt to'come'down the sides  . of the valley/and Lieut. Leckie's party  was actually inside the Boer lines.  At dusk the party took possession of  the farm house above mentioned, and  a guard was-placed to see that nobody  _ left the house to inform the enemy,  and our men slept in a ��iouse  for the  s  first time since leaving Calgary. _  ' ' At dawn the Boers all withdrew, and  Lieut.. Leckie   occupied   the   village.  ' The astonishment of the few occupants  (non-combatants) who remained in the  vicinity may be imagined, and still  moreso the advance guard of General  Pole-Carew's column, which arrived  later in the day, to find Strathcona's  Horse in possession.. The- officer in  charge of tbe above advance guard, on  hearing,Lieut. I_eckie's explanation,  said: '"Well, I'm hanged, no matter  where we go or what we   do,   you   in-  - fernalStrathcona's get- ahead of- us.'  Lieut. Leckie' was told by" -Lord. Dun-  donald, when he started, to make for  any British camp he liked after finding  out what he required, so he went to the  main body, after assisting the infantry  and police in searching the houses in  the' district, "and many curios were  obtained.  _ Two days later Lieut. Leckie rejoin-"  cd us. The next advance, made vas towards Lydenburg, and whilst marching along the Crocodile valley-we had  a .hot time of it. _ The country was far  aicer and.more picturesque, but very  . rough going for horses, huge dongas  and ravines full of thick scrub, and  4 troop -C Squadron; being 'flankers'  oh the right, experienced many difficulties in keeping their correct distance,  from the main body. The field guns,  pom pom and galloping Colt'guns came  . into action about half way up the valley, as some Boer wagons could be seen,  retiring up.it; a running action with  the Boer rear guard was 'kept up till  dark, with little'results."
