Copper Mining-and  Development company, was down from  Summit   camp   the end of last week,  with . samples   of  chalcopyrite   taken  from the bottom of the'Blue Eell shaft,  at a depth of 30 feet.   The-specimens  exhibited to local mining- operators attracted   much  attention,   so  much so  that   before  Dorsey   returned to   the  property he had received a substantial  sized   cheque   for  a   block   of  50,000  shares   in   the   company.     The   purchaser   was  Pat- Welch,  the Spokane  railroad contractor.  Mr. Dorsey stated  that the money was on hand to take up  the second payment of the $67,000 bond  on the Blue Bellarid J.  S.  claims.    A  party, representing the .Chicago sharej  holders is shortly.expected in camp.  ;. A. B. Clabon, a Rossland mining  operator, after spending: several days  in the district returned to the Golden  City on Monday's train. After a-brief  visit to the Lardo Mr. Claborn goes to  Quebec to consult, with thc eastern  directors of the Quebec-Bouddary Mining company, of which he is managing director. At this meeting plans  will be made for the further development of the .Strawberry mine, in  Brown's camp,' including the installation of a machinery plant.  At the B. C. mine, Sntnmit camp'the  main shaft is now down past the 400-  foot leveland is beiiig continued. The  pay roll average's 105 employees, and  this will doubtless be increased when  new levels-are opened up.' ' '  At the Knob Hill, Phoenix cari_p,the  double-tracking of the tunnel has been  completed for a distance of 450 feet.  The tunnel is to be continued on  through the Grey Eagle ground so.as  to develop that property.      _      .  Sufficient work has-been performed  on the Little Bertha, Little Burne fraction, Little Burne, Brandon, and Brandon fraction in Phoenix camp; to allow the owners to obtain a crown  grant.

Last Tuesday night the officers of  Boundary Valley Lodge, T. O. O. F.,  were installed by D..D. G. M., W. M.  Law, assisted by a staff of past grands  from Grand Forks, Greenwood and  outside lodges. There.-was a very  large attendance of members and  visitors, the following being over from  Grand Forks:  A. L. Clements, Fred Clarke, T. E.  Cooper, Jeffrey Hummer, D. "Munroe,  J. A. McCatfum,George Chappie, A. 15.  Savage, Alex Dinsmore, Dr. C. M.  Kingston; Dan McLaren, Carson.  The  past  year in the Similkameen  disttict has been rioticable  by   the  interest   taken   in   its   future   by large  mining operators on the outride.   The  realization   that   this,  section   of the  province is without doubt, capable with  development   and the now absolutely  necessary means of transportation, of  producing both valuable minerals and  coal, is gradually dawning upon those  who are looking for virgin   fields, for  the investment of capital. The solution  of the transportation . problem is, from  all   accounts,   near   at   hand.     From  Vancouver  word   comes that the old  Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern charter   is to  be resurrected and that the  provincial government will bonus the  line   to the  extent of $4,000 per mile,  and   the   federal authorities will also  assist.   This line will open up a magnificent stretch of country, both arable  and   mineral,   from  the cities of.the  Pacific to the interior.   When the construction    of   this, .railway   shall   be  started,   the. scenes  and activity that  characterized the building of the Columbia   and  Western railway-will be  repeated on a larger scale.  Gold   was   first  discovered   on   the  In addition to the three-drill compressor- plant purchased for the No. 7  m.ine, Central camp, the management  has ordered from the James Cooper  Manufacturing company, through its  local agent, Mr.' Kirkpatrick, a double  cylinder, 8x10, hoisting engine, rated  at 30-horse power, a 10-horse power  boiler, .wire cable, skips, ore cars and  all ��� necessary sundries for such an  outfit.

In this week's issue appears a notice  from local people who intend making  application for an act to incorporate a  company to build a railway up the  West Fork. Their intention is to connect with the C. P. R. at a point near  Midway and tap the rich mines of the  West Fork district. The immense  showings in that section and the  amount of development already carried  out justifies the application for a charter, It is hoped that there will be no  opposition to this project. While  wagon roads are important, a railway  is of the greatest value in the opening  up of a mining clistrict. The project  has the distinct advantage of being  handicapped by no engineering difficulties and in the event of the charter  being granted there is reasonable assurance that the railway will be constructed at an early date.  .  It is to behoped that the development  of this rich section will not be delayed  by lack of railway facilities and every-  encouragement should be offered* those  .who show a bona fide interest "to give  the connection so much desired* i n tnfe  interests of the district. .  Similkameen river "in 1860 and from  authenticated reports still in existence,  itis learned that~placer miners, by the  old method, made from $4 to $20 per  day from the bars and beds of the  streams worked. On the Similkameen  .itself the returns were. fairly uniform  for many miles, but seveJal of the adjacent streams were rich only in spots.  The Cariboo excitement drew the  pioneer prospectors away from the district which, however, the Chinese continued to work with varying success  up to the present time. Now large  syndicates and capitalists are paying  attention to hydraulicing and dredging  the rivers of the upper Similkameen.  Mineral claims were also staked in  the early 60's, and it is reported that a  shipment of ore was sent to San Francisco via the Hope trail to the coast  and thence by sailing vessel to Frisco.  The returns of this trial shipment gave  37 per cent copper. Since Granite  creek excitement the district has progressed steadily. Only those who have  been through the country and know  its vast resources can form any appreciable idea of what it is capable, of  producing in the near future when  .transportation is available for Copper  Mountain, Hedley and other promising  camps.  . The area of the Similkameen covers  over 100 square miles and is divided  into twp. njdning divisions, namely the  Similkameen mining division, with the  recording office at Princeton, and the  Osoyoos. mining division with the  government jpfiice at Fairview. The  headwaters of the Similkameen river  rise- in the Cascade range of mountains, soCtth of the international boundary line and flows north for about 50  miles, dividing Copper mountain from  Kennedy mountain, twelve miles south  ���of Princeton.   The town of Princeton  .*_ .- ���  is situated at the forks'of the Similkameen  and Tulameen rivers and com  prises 320 acres which were first preempted   in  the eariy  sixties by J. F.  Allison,   the   pioneer   settler  of  the  Simiikameen valley.    In the spring of  1898-the townsite was acquired by the  Vermillion Forks Mining and Develop-   -  ment company.    Since then the place  has  grown  rapidly.   Last year some  excitement   was   caused   by   the   discovery of an excellent grade of coal on  the"1'Tulameen  river,  and experts say  that there is sufficient to amply supply  the   whole   district as well as the requirements of thc Boundary.  Among the principal mining camps  in  the upper Similkameen is that  of  Copper mountain, which is noted for  its   deposits   of bornite  copper.    The  best known   property   is the Sunset,  owned by  a company of which R. A.  Brown,   of  Grand   Forks,  is general  manager  and   a   heavy   shareholder.  Mr.   Brown,   accompanied   by   Smith  Curtis,   ex-minister of mines  for the  province,  was recently in New York  arranging   a  deal whereby sufficient  money will be forthcoming to place the  property on a shipping basis.   The ore  body from the surface cropping to the  bottom of the shaft, at that time at a  depth of ISO feet, is reported to assay  12 per cent copper.   The whole mountain   has been staked out and during     >t  the past year considerable prospecting  has been done on the numerous claims.  Kennedy mountain, across from Copper mountain, Friday creek and Roch  river are other sections that have received the attention of the prospectors  with favorable results.  The camps in the Tulameen river  district are located on Otter, Boulder,  Granite, and Brown's creek and Summit camp, situated near the summit of  the Hope range, are the headwaters of  the main river. ��� It is in Summit camp  >vhere a pass has been found for. the  Coast-Kootenay raiiway.  In the central Similkameen district  are Camp Hedly, Sterling creek, Pearson's and Riordan's camps beside Fifteen and Sixteen Mile creeks. Similkameen City is the principal supply point  for this district,  and; is.situated half  way between Keremeos and Princeton,  on the main wagon  road, traversing  the  valley   of   the   same name.   For  many years   this townsite was   unoccupied, under the belief  that it formed  a portion of Chuchuwayha Indian reserve, which lies in the center of Camp  Hedley.   This proved on* a survey being made by Frank Bailey to be inaccurate and consequently he purchased  the   land   from   the  government and  crown granted it.    It is now laid off in  lots and blocks on modern principals  and the coming summer should attract  a  considerable   population.   The   adjacent mining belt is about 80 miles in  width, running for over 40 miles in a  northeast and southeast direction from  Copper mountain to Bullion mountain,  on the east side of the Keremeos valley.  All of the above mentioned camps  are distinguished not only by the number of really first class mining properties but by the large extent of the  ore in sight, and the high grade of the  minerals.   The  ores in Camp Hedley  arechiefly arsenicaMronandchalcopy-  rite, carrying good commercial values,  while   Sterling   creek  and   Pearson's  camp  is phiefy copper sulphides of a  shipping character.   There are several  properties in Camp Hedley capable of  shipping ore as soon as transportation  facilities are provided in the valley below,   the   most   important  being the  Nickle Plate group, comprising eight  surveyed claims.   This group is owned  by the Standard Oil company interests        '  and the estate of the late Marcus Daly.  It is one of the best developed in the  whole district, some 1,500 feet of work  having been done the past year.   In.  1899 a car load of ore was packed out to  Penticton and shipped to the   Everett  smelter,   which   is said to have given  highly satisfactory returns.   Last fall  Mr. Rodgers, the superintendent of the  mine, constructed, with the help of the  provincial government, a wagon road  from Penticton to Camp Hedley, which  traverses    Pearson's   and   Riordan's  camps.   It will   be   continued on this  spring to Similkameen City, 6,000 feet  below, where it will join with the main  highway.  Adjoining the Nickle Plate group is  the Copper Cliff and Mound, owned by  W. Yolen Williams and associates.  Southend adjoining these two is another group owned by Superintendent  Hedley, of the Hall Mines, and Paul  Johnson, of the local smelter.  On Twenty-Mile creek is located the  Wellington, Giacker Jack, and Cannon  ball, owned here. Sterling creek camp  is noted for its rich surface croppings  of copper ore and many claims were  located last year.  The Similkameen district only awaits  transportation facilities when its  numerous camps will afford employment for hundreds of men in the mines  and prospects of its mountain ranges  and in the valleys below in the cultivation of the soil. It is a district destined to become no little factor in the  production of both copper and gold ores  of the province, _  .��.iS_S|3p  'fw��i__p|i  Mill January 16, 190L  ��__3-��  hS-*  the 6feiE&w66B wsfflS&A tfflflOS;  gatef-w^  ������ri il .*'-���������' '^i'i'-f--''"1^*_lnnr����iii'ii -*i�� i mm  I liave added to the equipment of my dental office an  apparatus for the administration of y y  Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen  for dental operations.

FOR ALDBRMUN.  ratified an agreement between Dtihtjan  Mcintosh,   acting  as a trustee' for ~i  tramway   company, and the corpora-1  tion.   This agreement imposed certain '  conditions upon the company and the  corporation.     The   company   had   to  secure a charter  under 'the tramway  act and had to complete the road within- 365 days from the time the charter  was  secured and had to deposit with  the city $5,000,   which sum should be  forfeited to the city in the event of the  company not carrying out the terms of  the agreement.   The city had to assist  in  getting   the charter and agreed to  guarantee' the' interest on "a sum not  exceeding  $100,000  for   a term of 20  years at a rate of 5 per cent per annum,  It will be impossible for the tramway company to carry out the terms of  the agreement on account of delay ih  beginning operations and consequently  the new owners will probably ask for  a   new   agreement with the city.   It  should   be distinctly kept in mind in  order that the Tramway may be  kept  out of the*domain of municipal politics  that   any agreement entered into between the city and the. company must  be  ratified   by  the  ratepayers.     No  council can enter into any agreement  whatsoever with a tramway company  without   the -ratification   of the ratepayers.   The tramway question is not  a  political   one.   All  are agreed that  the   tramway should be tmilt during  the year.   It is of the greatest'importance to Greenwood.   The duty of the  electors  at  this juncture is to  elect  business   men to the council so that  construction of the tramway may no.  be  delayed by unwise municipal administration.  ���  TENDERS WANTED.

It is not often  that the electors have an opportunity  to place the right men in municipal  offices and they.are to be congratulated  upon the fact that men like Messrs.  Caulfield, Ashcroft, Kirkwood and  Naden have consented to' run. Out-  side~~bf M. ''Kaiie,v who is a new man  and who should:make a good alderman, the; rest7 of" the' candidates announced, have been members of the  last council. They; must answer for  sins -of omission' or commission, and  with a record. ,of mistakes, litigation  and impaired credit they can hardly  complain -if��� th'e electors take matters  into their /own hands and elect new  men to take their places. "It is' time  for change " holds good in Greenwood  if the career of blunders is justification  for defeating ��� the holders of elective  offices. The electors are not forced to  make a change for change sake. .They  have an opportunity to make a change,  for the better, a change that will give  the city, such management as it needs  at this critical juncture in its history.  It-is not a question of using conciliatory methods towards those who cap  a period of municipal mismanagement  with stuffing the voters's lists, but it is  a question of relegating to private life  those who are accountable for the mistakes and placing capable men in  position.  Mr. Caulfield is blessed with abundance of public spirit, is a good business man and-: has' wise and -weirdefined views on all questions relating to  the public welfare. Liberal and broad  minded, he is just-the man for office in  these growing times in the growing  -west. If merit and ability countythe  .-ejeejtors^of: the^ South Ward will place  Mr. Caulfield at the head of the pollsT  In the* North Ward, the electors are  equally-fortunate.- Mr. Ashcroft has  courage .and ability 9.rid when elected  to office, as . tie undoubtedly will, he  will exercise his good judgment and  common sense . in the interests of the  city. Mr. Kirkwood is pushing, enterprising with plenty of ability. He has  lived in the west for years, has become  inbued with the western spirit and his  energy and push is required in making  Greenwood the big city it ought to be.  Mr. Naden is so well known to the  electors and his election is so certain  that little need be said in his behalf.  He has been identified with the city's  interest almost since its inception. He  has always been a stalwart champion  of everything that was for the upbuilding of Greenwood and the fact that he  has consented to run is a hopeful sign  that the municipal -history of the past  two years is at an end. - Mr. Banner-  man, in private life, is an estimable  business man,* but he made the fatal  mistake of associating himself with  those who were in charge of affairs  during the past two years and must  stand sponsor in the North Ward for  their long list of municipal blunders.  The fate_of the city is in the hands  of the people. If "they want good,  government they'can secure it by voting against every member of last  year's council who seeks re-election.  THIS TRAMWAY.  Now that eastern capitalists have  purchased the rights bf the Greenwood-  Phoenix Tramway company and are  ready to construct a tramway system,  the electors; will doubtless be interested in the relations that exist between the tramway "company and the  city.  On N6v7 23rd, 1899, the ratepayer  MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS, I90t  To the Electors of the Municipality of  the City of Greenwood:  Ladies and Gentlemen:��� I am a  candidate for the office of mayor atthe  approaching municipal election and respectfully solicit your votes and influence. During the campaign I will  have opportunities of explaining*'my  views at length.* Briefly stated, I am  in favor of the following:  The present state of city finances  and the stringency of the money market make it impossible to enunciate  a well defined policy of public improvements. An adequate system of waterworks is necessary and also somesuit-  able plan of sewering the city, but  these and other improvements must be  deferred until the city is in a better  ���financial position. I confidently, believe that by the exercise of wise judgment, the finances of the city can be  placed upon such a sound footing that  necessary public works can be constructed without placing excessive burdens upon the present taxpayers.  The credit of the city must be restored  and maintained. Litigation should  be avoided and I am in favor of an  amicable settlement with those who  have just claims against the corporation.  I If Greenwood is to occupy the prominence to which she is entitled by natural advantage, the city must be  brought into the closest touch with the  surrounding mining camps; "'During  i901 every effort should ,be made to  secure the construction of the tramway  without imposing additional burdens  on the ratepayers beyond those to  which they are already pledged. *  j The strength of etfery city, particularly one situated in the heart of a  mining district, lies in its workingmen  a.nd its future depends upon them. .1  a!m in favor of recognizing their claims  to proper protection. I believe eight  hours=: should, constitute ..alegal,_day_si  work and this principal should' he  adopted by the municipality.' Generally  speaking, I am iri favor' of  municipal work being carried on by  day labor; but in the event of contract  work being necessary, I would insist  that contractors should pay the current  wage.  ���I am opposed to the employment of  Chinese and the encouragement of  Chinese immigration and any power  granted to the corporation by the  Municipal Clauses Act should be exercised to the fullest extent in restricting  their employment in the city.  The mayor's time should be devoted  to the work of the city. I am not rich  enough to do this without compensation and if elected I will expect a sufficient sum to properly represent the  city without loss to myself.  The first of each year, estimates  should be prepared giving each section  of the city an equitable share of the expenditure and these estimates should  be religiously followed.  . I am your obedient servant,  y     Duncan Ross.  %-I,- Rithet & Go.  LIMITED.  j WHOLESALE   GROCERS  WINE AND SPIRIT  MERCHANTS.  VICTORIA, B.  C.  J  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

Bielenberg-, one of the best  known of the pioneer prospectors of  Boundar}' Creek, died at the Greenwood hospital on Saturday last after a  brief illness. Before death he made a  ��� will, leaving- his estate in charge of F.  ��� J. Finucane and Geo. A. Guess, whom  he named as executors.  E. A. Bielenberg-was born 3S years  ���ago in Holsteiiii Germany. As far as  can be ascertained he leaves a married  sister in. San Francisco; a brother who  is the Imperial German Consul at  Lima, the capitol of Peru, aud two  uncles in Montana.  Of a restive disposition,-his travels  had extended, to many quarters of the  earth. ; At the age of 18 he left'home  for Chili. From that country he went tp  Honolulu. For a time he. was manager of the sugar plantations of Claus  SprecVrels. His interests in the manufacture oi food products brought him  into intimate association with the late  KKal-ik_.ua I, King* of Hawaii, with  whom he amassed quite a fortune, but  left the islauds before thc outbreak of  the revolution. From San Francisco  lie again journeyed south, crossing the  Andes and touring Patagonia, Bolivia  and other Central and South American states. Then he drifted north and  in the 80's was engaged in thc banking  business in Montana. Here he lost a  fortune. Nothing* daunted he joined a  party bound for Hot Springs, camp,  arriving in the fall of 1890. Ains-  worth, as the place was afterwards  called, was the leading mining camp  of a ; vast stretch of country iittle  known to the prospector,1 extending  west from the towering Rocky mountains to the Arrow; L,akes. In July  of the following year John Seaton and  Eli Carpenter discovered the rich silver-lead deposits of the "Silvery Slocan," but it was not until 12 months  after when the news became generally  public that the first rush was witnessed.  Bielenberg and Eli Carpenter made  the trip into the Slocan, by-the way of  Kelson, up the Slocan river,- and onto  Slocan lake, thence following Carpenter creek to Three Forks. His venture  proved unsuccessful.-  ln the spring of 1895, the "Count," a  sobriquet by which he since became  familiarly kuown, wandered into the  Boundary district, and from that  period resided in this city. He was  largely interested in the Buckhorn  Gold Mining company, and at the time  of his death was superintending the  development of this company's holdings. He practically owned the" whole  of the stock in the Arlington-Burns  company. With partners he had considerable interests up the West Fork of  the Kettle river and iu the far Kitti-  mat district. He acquired consider--  able money from the sale of mining  properties, the greater portion of which  he reinvested in the district. Mr.  Bielenberg had a large number of  friends.. He was a cosmopolitan in  the true sense of the word. Well educated - and intelligent and having  travelled extensively, he was alike at  home in the great city or in the prospector's cabin in the mountain; a brilliant conversationalist, he often entertained his friends by splendid descriptions of exciting incidents in his life.  He was one of the most interesting of  the argonauts of Boundary and his  death is universally regretted.  Funeral services were held Sunday  afternoon at Gulley's undertaking  parlors and at the,cemetery Boundary  "Valley lodge I. O..O. F., of which the  deceased was a member/attended in a  -body-��� Short-'but^impressive^services1  were conducted in the parlors -by Rev.  Mr. Anderson, of th'e Presbyterian  church, and at the grave, Noble Grand  James" Kerr and Chaplain Fred B.  PJolmes conducted the services for the  Oddfellows. "In addition to the members of the lodge there were a large  number of friends and acquaintances  present. - ....���"���  TO THE PUBLIC.

He then called Mr. Watson who  shot it through Uie brain. On being  stretched out it measured six feet from  tip to tip, and while Messrs. Watson  and Berry regret the loss of about 16  hens which the panther had killed,,  they are glad 1h��it they succeeded in  riding the neighborhood of this beast  which has lately been, causing.such  deprecations in theii vicinity.
