Mrs. C. M. Shaw recently received  another letter from her nephew, Alex.  Shaw, who went from Greenwood to  join the Strathcona Horse and has  since seen much active service in South  Africa. Mr. Shaw's letter is dated  Frederickstad, Nov. 6, and he wrote as  follows: "We arrived here from Pretoria on October 25th, and had a scrap  with the enemy who had cut off Barber's brigade. The Boers retreated  leaving- 200 hundred dead on the field.  Our casualties were 45 only. One  Boer had been struck in 30 places by  shrapnel from the 12^-pound naval  g-uns. Behind a wall 40 Boera were  found dead together. There was a  dreadful slaughter. Sergeant Humphreys had an extraordinary escape  the other day. We were out scouting  when he came suddenly upon two Boers  with their backs to him, not 40 feel  away. He aimed, but alas, his rifle  missed fire. With great presence of  mind, he hurled himself from his horse  and the Boers fired three shots at him  before running away, but he was unharmed. We are out almost every day  scouring the country for signs of the  enemy.but their experience on the 25th  ult. seems to have scared therii** away  from this district. Generals French  and Methuen are to the north of us  and General Knox to the west. Trains  now run through to Patchefstroom  daily. Patchefstroom is a delightful  old town and the flowers "are in full  bloom there. We camped in the club  grounds where there are a bicycle  track and football and tennis grounds.  All about these are -charming rose  bushes, but the flower beds are sadly  neglected. We used the garden seats  for firewood.  There are preparations at last for  our home'ward journey and-our quartermaster has leftt for the cape to get all  things in readiness for our departure.  Mr. L<eckie is well. Bob Palmer "was  wounded in the foot, at Bergendale and  is now somewhere down the country.  .O'Brien is here, and sends regards.  Charlie Dandy is s with us still and I-  am going over tomorrow to show him  the photograph you sent me. (Poor  Dandy, who was an intimate friend of  the Shaws, has since died from fever.  ���Ed.) I am returning to British Columbia via Japan, where I shall visit  my. parents. I expect to be back in  Greenwood in February if all goes well.*  I must stop now as I have to go out on  patrol in an hour. Kind regards to all  friends." ��_���  Messrs. Hallett & Shaw are on behalf  of their clients applying to the provincial legislature for an act incorporating a company to carry on the business of smelting, supply power, and  electric light, operate tramways, construct waterworks, excavate a tunnel  between- Greenwood and-"Phoenix,  or Grand Forks and Phoenix, and to  do several other things of an industrial nature.

The! Granby smelter, the pioneer of  the district, was blown in on August  21st with 'one furnace only. Shortly  after the second furnace was put into  operation and today the capacity of  this plant is over 600 tons every 24  hours. In other words, the annual  turnover, ou this basis, will consider-  ab'y exceed $1,000,000. Now that the  various interests of the Miner-Graves  syndicate, including the claims at  Phoenix and the smelter and realty at  Grand Forks and Carson are to be consolidated by a company to be known as  the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and Power company, it is  understood that the plant is to be  doubled in capacity. This in itself is  proof that the smelter has been the  success anticipated.  "~ Coming nearer home, the Times reiterates the statement that unless the  unexpected happens, the British Columbia Copper company's smelter will  be blown in about the first week in  February. By that time some 8,000  tons of ore will be on hand ready for  smelting, when it is hoped that the  new equipment at the Mother H.ode  mine will be in running operation so  as to maintain a daily output of some  300 tons that will be required  by the "reduction" works." Starting from the first of the year shipments  of coal and coke will be forwarded  daily   by the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  company so that there will be an  abundant supaly on hand. Little remains to be done, with the exception of  the completion of the assembling of  the machinery in the sampling department, and this being rushed forward  with all posssible speed. As noted in  last week's issue, the three 100-horse  power boilers are ready to be fired up,  In the adjoining department, the engine and blower room, all the machinery is set up and connections  made. Passing to the furnace house,  which is built throughout of structural  iron supports and "I" beams, the furnace floor being laid with solid caste  iron plates, there only remains to be  set up an elevator. The blast and  water pipe connections are ready to be  placed in position "when necessary.  Three weeks will be ample time to put  together all the machiney in the  sampling building, and this will leave  a few days for cleaning up,, so that it  is not unlikely to anticipate the plant  "blowing in" early in February.  At the Pyritic smelter, which was  visited by a Times representative on  Sunday, there is much activity, both  inside and out. ^Delays have been  suffered for want of timber, and this  has in a large measure retarded work.  On the outside the foundation brick  work for the steel smoke-stack is  finished and the 112-foot stack is being  raised. A considerable alteration over  the initial plans has been made,notably  in the lengthening of the flue-dust  chamber, necessitating the building of  the smoke-stack at the south end of  the building, instead of at the north as  origninally designed/and in the re-arrangement of some of the machinery.  The furnace has been set up, as also  the No. 7 Connisvill blower with the  75-horse power engine connected. The  two 80-horsepower boilers, mounted on  temporary frames are ready to be  bricked in. In the sampling department the machinery _ has been distributed ready to be set up, and this  work will be started in earnest before  the end of the week. The wooden  flume, to bring the water from the  dam is awaiting lumber to be finished,  as also the water-supply tank. Want  of timber has prevented the raising of  the trestles for the railway spur that  runs into the building, over the bins  from the north end. Throughout the  work is otherwise well advanced and  in six to eight weeks time, the management expects to start operations.  No information is obtainable regarding the intentions of the management  of' the Dominion Copper company with  regard toits "proposed smelter. James  Breen,   at the head of the syndicate  (Concluded on Fourth Page.)  Eastern Capitalists Will Gommence Construction at an Early Date.  Negotiations which were pending for  several weeks were brought to a successful termination yesterday when  the shareholders in the Greenwood  Electric company and the Greenwood-  Phoenix Tramway company sold out to  a strong aggregation of eastern  capitalists who will begin active work  with a view to having the system in  operation during' the year. The sale  was effected through Messrs. Hallett &  Show, all the shareholders selling their  hoidinga at a good figure. Those who  sold included Geo. H. Collins, Duncan  Mcintosh, Pat Welch, J.W.Stuart,  Ronald Harris and F. J. Finucane.  Mr. Welch who has a railway contract  in .Oregon arrived in the city yesterday to complete the sale, so far as he  and hiB partner, Mr. Stuart are concerned. The money was paid through the  Bank of Montreal and both companies  passed into the hands of the eastern  men. Notwithstanding the many  election rumors that have been current,  neither the Tramway company nor the  electric light company have taken any  action in the municipal election.   The  deal, as has already been staied, has  been pending for several weeks and  under the circumstances neither com  pany was in a position or inclined to  take any action. The new owners are  eastern men and know nothing about  Greenwood politics. They have the  money to build the* tramway and intend to build as quickly as men and  money can do so, their only interest  being that the electors will elect good  men to represent the city so that the  success of their plans which depends  so materially on the growth and development of Greenwood may not be  jeopardized by unwise or unprogres-  sive municipal administration. Arrangements are being made for the engagement of a superintendent of construction who will immediately begin  operations. ^  The construction of the tramway  means much for Greenwood and the  entire district. It wiil bring Greed-  wood into close touch with all the mining camps-and make Greenwood .the  metropolis of a great district.  FOR ALDERMEN.  A, E, Ashcroft, W,J. Kirkwood  Geo, R, Naden in the North"  J J, Caulfield in the South.  Now that the holidays are over the  eleotors are taking a greater interest  in the municipal contest. The supporters of Mr. Ross and Dr. Jakes are  conducting a quiet though aggressive  campaign. Mr. Ross is backed by a  quartette of strong men who are in the  field for aldermen. In the North "Ward  Mr. Geo. R. Naden has consented to  run. He is one of the best known and  most highly respected business men in  the city, just such a man as ' the city  wants at this stage. Mr. W. J. Kirk-  wood is also in the field. He is a well  known resident of the North Ward,and  a prominent member of the Carpenters' Union. ^Mr. Kirk wood is a wide-  a vake, progressive citizen and will  make a capable alderman. Mr. A. E.  Ashcroft, P.L.S., has been requested to  become a candidate by several of the "  residents of the North Ward and he has  consented to do so, his card appearing '  in another column. Mr. Ashcroft is a  welll known civil engineer and his  knowledge in this respect should be of  great service to the city. He does not  wish to take part in the fight for mayor  excepting to cast his vote, but he is  such a good man for the position that *  the supporters of Mr. Ross had no  hesitation in endorsing him. Mr.  David Bannerman, who was a member  of last year's council, is running in the  North Ward, and Mr. J. W. Nelson may  also consent to run.  In the South Ward, Mr. J. J. Caul- *  field is in the field for alderman.   Mr."  Caulfield is one of the brightest business men in the city and if the electors "  of the South Ward desire a progressive  ,  business administration of  municipal  affairs,  they will vote  for   Mr. Caul- '  field.    Both   sides, in the interests of   .  the city, should give him their hearty '--  support.    It is  not often that men,o��7  Mr. Caulfield's stamp can  be  induced  to run for  a municipal office^and the  electors should take advantage of * the  opportunity to place him at the head'of  the < poll. "The only other  new BTood   '  announced in the South Ward is.Mf.T' -7  M. Kane, who is one of the pioneers,~of *J '���  the district and a well known resident,  *"'  of  the  city.   D.J. Sullivan and Mr. /'*  Geo. "H.'Cropley, two members of last " -  year's council, are again in the field.'  ' 7"  While the campaign has been comparatively free from anything objectionable so far, some of Dr. Jakes'  supporters have been busy in the \  manufacture of election roorbachs.  Some of these are too trivial to be noticed but one has a direct bearing on  one of tVie most important issues of the  campaign that an emphatic denial is  necessary. The citizens of Greenwood  are intensely interested in the construction of a tramway system and  this has been taken advantage of by "**"  attempting to load them up with mis- {" ���  statements of fact**- It has been reported and industriously circulated;  that theTramway company approached:.  both candidates with a proposition to' '  extend the time in which they can.  build to save their deposit of $5,000  and their-franchise, that Mr. Ross consented to the proposition and Dr.  Jakes refused, and consequently the  electors should vote for Dr. Jakes as  he was prepared to force the hands of  the company. There is absolutely no  truth in the proposition. The Tramway company neither directly or in-  dtrectly made such a proposition to Mr.  Ross, nor as far as he can learn to Dr.  Jakes. The Tramway company are  getting in readiness to build the line  and at an early date the electors will  be informed of their definite intentions  in this regard. It would be idle to  hope, from the experience of previous elections in this city, that the  manufacturers of this and other election stories could refrain from exer-,  cising their extensive powers of imaginations and the electors are  cautioned against accepting statements such as the above. Mr. Ross is  prepared at any time to explain to any  elector his views on the construction  of the tramway or other matters of  public interest and it will be found  that he is strong in his views with reference to seeing the tramway constructed at the earliest possible date.  f'.i'>!="--  ,-x \.'->A*  - _-��� '��� -i>  CS .

The government  then goes out of power, and the opposition steps in.  The same performance is gone  through, with little benefit to the road  with, perhaps, changing the road back  to where it was before.  All this goes to show that the organization of a Good Roads Association  has hot been too soon. It can do g-ood  work if properly conducted.  Dr. R. Mathison  Both 'Phones.

G'OOD.7ROADS.  Thb -movement for -good roads  throughout the province is a excellent  one and it is-gratifying to learn that  the meeting of the Good-Roads Association, held recently in Victoria, was  most successfully There is no country  where good wagon roads are of greater  importance'..'��� than, in this, province  The backbone-of the province is the  mining industry. While many districts; have* been partially developed  there are still sections rich in mineral  wealth that have not even been prospected. To reach them roads areneces-  sary. The development of many a  d istrict has been retarded by lack of  facilities for the bringing of supples  It is an easy matter to get a wagon  road or even a railway when the wealth  of a district has been proven by those  who had to build trails and endure  hardships in order to demonstrate that  therev was hidden wealth iu a particular  section. The greatest good can be  done iti the'..earliest.stage of a district's  history when the 'construction of a  road .would do much towards its de  ' yelopment. This point was forcibly  illustrated by Mr. Duncan. Mcintosh  at the banquet tendered Mr. McBride,  minister of mines, in this city. He  pointed out this, "That.'the government took no chances in the development of the country." In the early  days of Boundary Creek, they could  not get a dollar for the construction of  wagon roads. The government showed  its lack of confidence in the future of  the district by refusing to cc-ntribuite  a dollar of the money paid into the  treasury, and the owners of claims had  to go down into not very full pockets  to build their own roads. Machinery  for the development- of _the.,.minesk'cgst.  exorbitant prices because of heavy  freight charges over bad roads. The  pioneers met all these difficulties and  when they fully demonstrated that the  country had merit, the government  then, and not till then, were willing to  invest money in roads and public  buildings." The point, he made was  that the expenditure of public money  at the initial stage would have been of  far greater benefit than now when  every one was prepared to put money  in the district. He instanced the case  of the West Fork, a district he believed  was as rich as Boundary. Thegovern-  ment were slow about investing money  now when it would do the. most good,  when it would hasten the development  of* a. rich mining section, insuring a  big revenue to the government.  So mucn for" the construction of  roads. The next point to. be considered  is the method. It is not too much to  say that more money has been thrown  away than has been actually expended  in construction. These mistakes ought  to be and can be reduced to a minimum  by asystematic plan of road building.  Capt.'Bjack, a pioneer ih -the Omineca  district, at the meeting of the Good  Roads Association, gavesome amusing  and striking .instances of the present  system.   He said in part:  A grant is made by the government  of the day, for a road or trail. The  money is handed to John Brown,  general merchant, Sleepy Hollow. A  number of his customers, whq owe  him money, are employed. at the  highest possible rates; one is appointed  foreman; he is a good "fellow, but  knows vrvy little, about road making.  These men have hay to make, and the  road work must be'put off till that is  done, consequently^-the work is done  late in the fall, shovelling snow and  mud on the road while traffic .is going  on, making the road farworse than before. ������'���"    "*���"  EDITORIAL NOTES.  It is time for a change.  Vote for Caulfield in South "Ward.  Vote for  Ashcroft, Kirkwood and  Naden.  The  old   council and old   methods  should go.  Dr. Jakes is backed by the followers  of the old regime.   You want a change.  Do you want a good business muni  cipal administration?   You.have   the  opportunity to secure the same.  To secure an active, progressive, up-  to-date cityj it is necessary to secure  active, progressive, up-to-date men in  chargeof affairs.  MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS, 1901-  To the Electors of the Municipality of  the City of Greenwood:  I/ADiBS and Gentlemen:���I* am a  candidate for the office of mayor at the  approaching municipal election and respectfully solicit your votes and in  fluence. 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 some suitable plan of sewering the city, but  these and other improvements must be  deferred until thc city is in a better  financial position. I confidently be-  UeYe'thatby 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 tliose who  have just claims against'the corpora1  tion.  \. If Greenwood is to occupy the prominence to which she is entitled by natural advantage, fhe city niust be  brought into the closest touch with the  surrounding mining camps. Duting  1901 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.  The strength of every city, particularly one situated in the heart of a  mining district, lies in its workingmen  and its future depends upon them. I  am in favor of recognizing their claims  to proper protection. I believe eight  hours should constitute a legal day's  work^and^^  adopted by the municipality. Generally  speaking, I am in 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 lo 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,  "���-... Duncan Ross.  MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS 1901.  Greenwood, Dec. 29,1900..  A. E, Ashcroft, Esq., P.L.S.

Mr. Deane, the president of  the association, suggested that its  efforts ought to be chiefly in an educative line, and perhaps this is about its  most useful scope at the'present .time.  . The ultimate object of the movement  is the taking-'of road building wholly  out of politics and the handling of the  whole matter by.: some responsible organization, which, though accountable  to the government and legislature, will  not be political in its construction and  tenure of office. Just how this can be  reached is the open question, and there  are and will continue to be wide differences of opinion upon it. Possibly  it is best to apply,at once to the whole  province the system of local government; arid-entrust the local organizations with the control of ..the road  money, subject to a certain degree of  government supervision. Perhaps it  is too soon to think of organizing the  whole province on the lines found  suitable in more thickly settled and  smaller jurisdictions. ��� Perhaps the  true solution for. the time being is to  create a permanent road bureau, with  a practical man ��� in charge, who shall  report to the minister of .public works,  and shall not be removed except for  cause to be stated to the legislature.  We are all familiar with the influence  which prevert road building from useful channels in too many cases. A  candidate makes promises during his  canvass, and tries to carry them out  after he is elected. He tries to keep  supporters together by a. judicious distribution of patronage and the road  money is the largest source of patron"-  age. It is not ih human nature to resist the temptations thus offered to employ public money with an;eye, in part  at least, to turning thev expenditure to  political advantage.  The government that takes'up this  question and offers something like a  practical solution of it will confer a  lasting obligation upon the province,  and we believe would find the members of'. the legislature ready to assist  in -perfecting and carrying such a  me_-sure * into: effect.y Every member  wotikf be" very glad to be relieved of  the responsibility of'supervising road  expenditures. 7 * Members would ' bf  course be consulted as to the wants of  their constituencies in a general way,  but there would be: ah end of the apportioning of the road money between  minor subdivisions and political henchmen!* "If a permanent ��� bureau ,wer&  established the object of the person in  charge would' be to: use the money  economically, so as to hiake'the best  possible showing in his own interest.  It would"alsb-be possible, for road construction to be carried on according to  some regular plan, and for.repairing tp  be d'onersyBteinatically. We think'the  advantages of a permanent road bureau  are very great, and while not losing-  sight of the importance of- considering;  how far" the system of local government can be extendedto the province,  we urge the government to take into its  seribusconsideration:the establishment  ofrsuch a branch, of the" public service.

GOOD ROADS  MEETING.  .������t The delegates elected by the local  "Good Roads associations were in ses-  ��� sion yesterday in this city and the discussions were very interesting-yOf  course- there was no difference of opinion as the value of good'roads to the  community, but there was. some as tp  the best way to make the association  efficient. The question'is not free from  difficult)-, and the experience of other  localities is not a very good guide.  British Columbia is exceptional in  many ways. Its dimensions are enormous. For the most part settlement is  sparse. Many settlements are isolated.  Not only are highways needed but in  many cases t-ails are even more essential.-: Then we have localities where  municipal councils collect and expend  the road money, and.others where the  department of public works has charge  of the whole subject, the money being  paid out of the public, treasury. In  this province trunk roads mean more  than they do almost anywhere else in  Canada; yet trunk roads may be of little service without by-roads. In most  parts of Eastern Canada a system of  expenditure and method of road con-  . struction - applicable to one locality  suits every other locality equally as  well. Here there are various considerations *to be taken into account, and  many of them are radically different  from the_ others.' It is perhaps correct  to say that in no part of the Dominion  is .the road question surrounded with  greater or a greater variety of . difficulties  than here, and for this reason is  It is a mystery why women endure  backache,. headache, nervousness;  sleeplessness,melahcholy fainting and  dizzy spells when- thousands have  proved that Electric Bitters will quickly cure such troubles, "I .suffered for  years with kidney trouble," writes Mrs  Phebe Cherley, of Peterson, la., '-and  a lame back pained me so I could not  dress . myself, but Electric Bitters  wholly_ cured mc,   and,   although   73  years old, I now am able to do all my  housework."

Phoenix before the end of the week.  .That operations on the construction of  a smelter by Mr. Breen sometime during- the summer seems to be a forgone  conclusion. Mr. ��� Breen is a smelterman, and when he took over the holding's of the Dominion Copper company-  he did so with a view to treating the  product of the mines at his own works*  From a party who is in close touch  with the new management it is learned  that the plant will be built on this side  of the.line, and as near as possible to  the mines.  A  A special meeting of shareholders  in the Boundary Creek Mining and  Milling company, limited, is to be held  in Greenwood Thursday afternoon,  17th. inst, to consider a proposal to  turn over fhe whole of the mineral  claims, land aiid .other assets of the  company to a new company to be  formed in ling-land for the purpose of  acquiring these and of developing the  mining properties.. The proposal  comes from'the I^ondon and Canada  Syndicate, limited, of London, England, which holds about one-half of the  stock in the local company. The  directors of the syndicate suggest the  orgahizaton iu England of a company  with a nominal capital of ,��75,000  (about $375,000) in 75,000 shares of the  par valueof ,��1 ($5) each.. Of these 45,-  000 would be exchanged for the 1,500,-  000 shares in the. present company,  which exchange would give three ��l  shares for every 100 shares in the old  company.    This     would     mean   that  these iatteT^h"afe^~would' be'purchased  by the new company at the rate of  about 15 cents per share, payable in  stock. Of the balance of the shares in  the new company 20,000 would be  offered for subscription and these  * would give the new company a working capital of about $100,000 with which  to pay off the existing^liabilities of the  old company arid to supply a power  plant and develop the more promising  of the claims. Advices from London  are to.the effect, that the directors of  the London and Canada Syndicate are  confident of success in floating the  proposed new company should the  sanction of shareholders representing  the requisite majority of shares in the  old company be given without delay.  They have heretofore found difficulty  in obtaining capital for the further development of the company's properties  owing chiefly to the fact that English  investors are not disposed to provide  money where, as in this case under existing conditions, the control of the  company is so far removed from London. ������ On the other hand they have  been assured of financial .support conditionally that control be held in London. The local directors, seeing no  other means of raising the capital  necessary for a resumption,of work on  an effective scale, favor the acceptance  of the proposition submitted by the  English shareholders, whose large  holding of shares in the present company has cost them so much money,  that they must make the new company  strong financially and a success in  order to recoup themselves: for their  earlier outlay, tn . thus working for  their own advantage they must at the  same time benefit the local shareholders, for all alike will receive only  that has, under an agreement, taken  over the properties of this company, is  down   at Spokane but is to be back at  stock in the new company���not cash���  for their shares in the old one.  The Boundary Creek Mining and  Milling company owns a group of fourteen adjoining mineral claims, situate  near Greenwood, and nearly all crown  granted. It also owns what is known  as the McDonnell ranch, at the junction of Eholt and Boundary creeks. It  will be remembered that last year two  carloads of ore from its Gold Bug  claim were sent to the Trail smelter  and returned respectively $150 andS154  per ton net; also that the ore from  several of its claims shown by Mr.-D.  A. Holbrook at the Spokane exposition  of 1899, received second award for individual mineral exhibit, though its'  competitors were numerous from  British Columbia and the states of  Washington, Idaho, Montana and Oregon.   :.  Morrison has been the leading stock  traded in tne past week, some 30,000  shares having changed hands in Greenwood at prices ranging from 3��/�� to  3}(c. Winnipeg sold at 3l/2 in small  lots, and remains at this figure,though  it is not quoted below for the reason  that the Spokane stock exchange has  cut it off the list. From the first of  the year several other stocks have been  taken off the board and more active  ones listed in their place. Commencing  uext week, the Times will quote the  shares of the Rossland stock exchange  in place of the Spokane quotations as  the list embraces more Boundary companies.

It will be officially  known as the Pacific Northwest International Exposition and will have the  endorsatioh of the Federal government,  at least to the tune of $250,000 as a  starter. The. proposed exposition will  to a large extent be devoted to a grand  display of the mineral wealth of the  Inland Empire in particular, and the  different states embraced in the Pacific  Northwest, including this province.  To this attraction it is not unlikely  that an electrical palace will be added  Spokane, in days gone by, was noted  for its hustle, and great credit is.due  its citizens for the way "in which they  aided with capital and muscle the development of the mining industry contiguous to the Falls city, so that it is  natural to suppose that they will make  the proposed exposition a magnificent  one. When the doors are thrown open  the wealth of the Boundary district  will doubtless . be properly demonstrated by a large and attractive exhibit. At least the occasion to advertise this section should not be neglected  as it was at the last fruit fair, much to  the regret of many miue owners here  and to the management of the mineral  department.  -At -the-annuaUmeeting~=-of ^-.shareholders of the Mountain View Copper  company, limited, held at Eholt on  December 27, the old board of directors  were re-elected and the following officers appointed for the ensuing year:  Pat Welch, president; G. A. Rendell,  vice president; Jno. M. Scrafford,  managing director; and J. R. Mackintosh, secretary-treasurer.  ���- .  At the Marguerite, Deadwood camp,  a gallows frame, engine hotlse and ore  bins are being built. After pumping  out the mine further development will  be prosecuted in the east and west  drifts at the 100-foot level, before sinking is resumed. The crosscut tunnel  is in. 70 feet. The Ah There was  pumped out yesterday and sinking was*  started today.  Recent assays of ore from the face  of the drift ou the Huinming.Bird, iu  Brown's camp, returned values as follows:, Gold, $41.34; silver, 90 cents;  and gold, $24.80; silyer, $1.68. The  face of the drift is all in ore.. On the,  surface a force of men is -prospecting  the" vein by open cuts.  Ore bins and a platform are to be  built .at the Emma, in Summit cams^  Surface stripping of the big ledge disclosed by the railroad cut is still going on. ~  In thc drift on the No. 3 vein on the  Morrison, copper s nlphide is now coming in freely.

F. of M.,  and their friends danced the old century out and the new century in oa  New Year's eve" The Auditorium was  crowded and the affair was a decided  success in every way. Beside those in  attendance from the city quite a number came in from Phoenix and Dead-  wood. The Auditorium was attractively decorated with mottos, bunting and  flags, and with a good floor and excellent music nothing had been left undone to make the ball a feature of the  winter season. Credit is due the following members who had the dance in  hand, M. H. Kane, Robert Donagin,  Thomas Pieckart, James Fisher and  E. Shea. .The proceeds go to form a  nucelus for a fund to build a Miners'  Union hall, which the growth of the  local union now warrants.  DISASTROUS FIRE AT MIDWAY.  On Friday morning shortly after 2  o'clock fire broke out out in the Boundary hotel, Midway, owned by Thos.  McAuley, and the building, as -well as  a log building adjoining, \vere burned  to the ground. The fire originated in  the basement, and it is supposed, must  have been caused by the furnace. It  seems that the first one to discover  that the building was on fire was E. A.  McAuley, brother of the proprietor.  His room was on the groud floor, and  he was awakened by hearing a rig  drive past at a rapid gait. When he  awoke he smelled smoke and then  noticed it coming through the tran-  some over the door. He at,once went  to all the rooms and awoke the inmates  and as the entire building was filled  with smoke, it was with ^-reat cifflculty  that some of them got outside safely.  By this time the fire had been observed  by some of the citizens and an alarm  raised which soon brought assistance.  The cash register was taken out of the  bar and at the time it was done flames  were coming through the floor at. the  other end of the room. Some, of the  boarders saved a few articles of wearing apparel, but most of them had  barely time to slip on a meagre supply  of clothes and get outside. In an incredibly short time the whole building  was a mass of flames, and only for the  fact that there was no wind blowing  the loss would have been much greater.  As it was,only by the strenuous efforts  o~f the 'Hfizerisr whb fbrined;a-bucket-  brigade and carried water from the  river, was the big livery stable across  the street, saved, and its present  blackened and charred condition tells  the story of its narrow escape. In a  cellar separate from ' the hotel was a  stock of about $2,000 worth of liquor,  which was saved.. The total loss was  between $9,000 and $10,000, on which  an insurance of about $5,000 existed in  ^4.4.4 4,4.4,4,,4. .fr-fr-fr 4 4 4 4.-^ % 4--^4*.  ���*  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  e e  ��� ���  &kv%r&  A FEW PIECES BELGIUM CUT" GLASS LEFT,  A very nice assortment of English Oak ware such  as Waiters, Salad Bowls, Butter Dishes, Biscuit Jars,  Liquor Sets, etc, Also a very fine line of Sterling  Novelties, and last but not least a very full line of  Souvenir Goods such as Tea Spoons, Goffee Spoons,  Paper Knives, Salt Spoons,  Mustard Spoons,   etc.  Call and Inspect Our Stock Before Buyine-  No Trouble To Show Goods.  ���^SPR��TT & MACPHERSON..  . ...THB   LEADING   JEWELLERS...
