West Bridgk^B. C, Oct. 30.-=-John  C. Rlelly, of Greenwood, and Fleming  Robinson, of Vancouver, late manager  of the Oro Fino mines at Fairview, B.  C, have just got in from theif camp  on Lost Horse creek,c on the east side  of the Kettle river, three miles below  Canyon City, where they have been  most of the summer prospecting and  developing their claims, the Black  Diamond, and Maize" as well as some  work on three or tour other adjoining  claims,, and are highly pleased with  their 'summer's work.  " The claims are situated uji the creek  .about one mile in the bunch grass hills  and are beautifully situated between  the creek and the river; the .claims are  staked northeast and southwest, and  the two big ledges run nearly in the  same direction. On the Black Diamond  at*the discovery post, about the, center  of the claim, there is a double shaft 10  feet deep by- 14 feet long and 4 feet  "wide, the/e the ledge is big-and'strong  and is frpm 5 to 6 feet, wide, but the  capping ^as I hardly been got through  yet.- To t��e northeast, about 200 feet  from th^-lines .between- the' Black  Diamond^' and the Maize the Maize,  there is- a 14-foot shaft, and here the  ore chute comes * within a foot of the  surface, put is only a few inches wide;  theledge-ba-. a.considerable dijj to the  ^wesjr^^gv-^.f^cyytfh ledges wherever  defined., The shaft cuts through the  ledge on the dip at eightieet and there,  is fully 40 inches of solid ore there."  Arsenical iron showing ^considerable  copper pyrites and a little quartz in  places. The first sample taken from  this place,' at the time of discovery,  gave $2 in copper gold and silver.  Average samples taken since, has  gone $8.30, $16 and$40, principally copper; the shaft here follows the footwall which is clean and smooth; 55  feet to the east of this shaft is a big  cut four feet wide, 6 feet deep and 25  feet long, this cut is all in ore and capping. Accross the bottom there are  three big reefs of ore, all having the  same dips. They are from 18 inches  to two and a half feet wide of solid ore  of a similar nature as in the other shaft.  Test pits above and below this cut  have~been "dug for a considerable distance showing the ledge. Seventy-  feet to th.e northeast af the 14-foot  shaft is an 8_foot hole on the same ore  chute, showing two  feet  of ore and  *��*lf-����ft��***��**ft#6��**������tt��-t.  9 9  9 9  * Uu si8     JQU * I---'*-*  * ��� It LILL-    i 111 LIi�� *  In Great Variety at  Popular Prices*  THE PATTERN  TELLS.

It pays  4He-4-��##*��*��*��*��e(������#��*����������  quartz, and at the back of that some  test holes showing the rotten capping;  200 feet still further northeast is another shaft 13 feet deep and here also  the ledge shows strong, firm and well  defined, showing clearly the wedge  point up, at the bottom there is 30  inches of solid ore, a mixture of quartz  iron and copper pyrites. About 40 feet  to the west of thia shaft some fine float  was found and several test pits dug  exposing large masses of quartz. The  chute has not been found at this point  but the capping of the ledge is there,  showing plainly that there is one big  ledge running right up the two claims  at least 5t feet wide. Still further up,  1,000 feet or nearly at the upper end of  the Maize,the ledge is again uncovered  and a five-foot hole dug, showing the  same rotten capping and some ore, thus  the ledge is shown up for about 2,000  feet. The ground is all covered with  wash from a few inches to eight or ten  feet thick, as in fact are all the claims.  On the Maize a big ledge is opened on  what appears to be the foot and hanging walls, A five or six-foot hole was  dug on each and open cuts showing  the ledges to be fully 40 feet wide, the  capping is big and rotten and ore in  both holes was found close to the surface; about 300 feet further northeast  the capping was found and 200 feet  still further along the ledge crops  again and about300feet from the northeast end of the claim the ledge is  opened by two crosscuts showing iots  of ore within three feet of the surface,  here also the ledges shows fully 40 feet  wide, with the same dip as the other.  The formation is porphyry and the  gangue calcite. Still further northeast at the dividing lines between the  Maize and Columbia the ledge is again  opened on the Columbia by a big cross  cut six feet wide and 15-foot long which  shows the ledge well defined, going  straight back southwest along this  ledge and right across the Blactt  Diamond to the dividing lines between*  the Black Diamond and Anvil and just  on the Anvil the ledge is again opened  -by a double shaft 10 feet deep; here the  ledge. started at* the surface at five  inches wide and at 10 feet it is fully  four feet. The ledge is somewhat different to the others,it shows consider-;  able sulpher,but no arsenic and the,  gangue is calcite and bornite and the1  iron is in-lay ers all .through and_. follows and lays with the dip, while the  ledge is impregnated all through with  copper pyrites and runs in little seams  through all. The first shaft cut the  point* off the ledge six or seven feet  deep and but little mineral of any kind  was shown but since then the improvement has been rapid and an avergage  sample' gave $14.97, principally copper,  with., a little gold and silver. \ There  are several other open cuts and test  pits on the claims and there are several  ether places where croppings have  been found that have not yet been  prospected but enough has been done  to put the property in good shape for a  good company to take hold of it, or if  not the owners now know where to  sink and then crosscut both of those  big ledges. Thsre is any amount of  good water and timber on the property, and a good road can be made from  the wagon road to Canyon City for a  couple of hundred dollars, and for nine  mouths of the year the river does not  take a horse above the knees and a  good bridge could be put over for $1,-  or $2,000.  [If the properties above described  are as good as our correspondent's  writing is bad, Rielly & Robinson have  a bonanza.���ED.]  ���The wealth of the-great Mother I,ode  mine is not yet fully determined. As  development work proceeds new and  richer treasure vaults are discovered.  This week the north drift at the 300-  foot level ran into solid chalcopyrite  and is still in the same character of ore.  The ��� ore resembles that of the B. C.  mine and runs high in copper.  Thos. McDonnell returned this week  from Bolster, bringing the good news  that the lower tunnel in the Review  mine had encountered the ore body.  The ore is richer than at the upper  level and conclusively proves that the  owners' opinion of the property was  not exaggerated.  I. Robert Jacobs, the popular pro-  proprietor of the Queen's Cigar Store,  has purchased from Ben Kirkpatrick  the Elmer. No. 2 claim near the B. C.  mine.  The 40-drill compressor of the Centre  Star and its inter-cooler were tested  yesterday in the presence of the engineers of the Centre Star company and  of the Canadian Rand Drill company.  The compressor exceeded in a large degree the rci-.-_emenes called for by the  contract, and earned for the Canadian  Rand Drill company a very handsome  bonus. Manager Kirby and Engineer  Grade expressed themselves as being  much pleased with the manner in  which the compressor operated. The  compressor is of the compound Corliss  type.���Rossland Miner.  WHIRLWIND  The City Paying Heavy Penalties for Wrong Doing.  HOW IT  ALL  HAPPENED.  Mayor Was Apparently Trying to  Harass Political Opponents and the  City Must Suffer From His Foolish  . Conduct ��� Litigation and. Useless  Work Cost a Big Sum.  It was: a dangerous thing to clothe  with authority, "a gentleman who apparently was anxious, to take advantage of the power conferred upon him,:  by virtue of his office, to satisfy political scores. It is alsd expensive. It  was an easy matter for the mayor of  the city to burden the ratepayers with  increased debts in a vain effort to  harass* and embarass those who opposed his election. It was equally-  foolish on the part of the ratepayers to  do or say nothing until nearly $20,000.  must be the penalty for permitting the  mayor to use the office of chief magistrate for the purpose of attempting to  injure those who. while they may not  have considered him a safe man to entrust with the affairs of the; city were  still entitled to the protection of rights  as citizens and ratepayers. ���  W.. Waterland's success in securing  substantial damages against the cor-!  poration. of the city of Greenwood,"isj  but the natural result from the policy���  which Mayor Hardy apparently mapped  put for himself since first elected soh_e-  two years ago.  In. his first election, his opponent'  v as Mr. Ralph Smailes, manager of  Rendell; & Co. Several citizens considered Mr. Smailes,the better man for  the position, and in the exercise of  their rights they strenuously- opposed  the : election of Mr. j Hardy. The-  majority of the ratepayers in their  wisdom thought Mr. Hardy should be  elected. They were entitled to their  opinion and not one of their opponents  thought they should be subjected-to  persecution on that account. :  .Mayor Hardy is constituted differ  ently, however. Laboring under the  impression that a political opponent is  a personal enemy, his municipal career  has been a series of efforts to punish  those who opposed him. A flood of  damage suits is the result. Unfortunately the ratepayers, and not the  Mayor Hardy must pay the penalty.  In the. firm of Rendell & Co., he  thought he had an opportunity to  secure three victims. Robt Wood,  Ralph Smailes and Geo. Arthur Ren-  dell.iiiThe__��rm^began business in a  modest way in the city;/they prospered  notwithstanding the mayor's opposition and the time came when they  were ready to build a large block at  the corner of Greenwood and Copper  streets. Now their manager, Mr.  Smailes, being a prudent business  man, took the precaution to secure the  city grade from the then city engineer.  The building was erected at a cost of  some $18,000 on this grade.  A Machevelian autocrat found here  a glorious opportunity to get even.  The grade was lowered 18 inches below that given to Rendell & Co. The  street was lowered leaving.the building in the air. This was in itself an  expensive proceeding but the effects  were far-reaching. Greenwood, the  cross street, has also to be lowered to  conform with Copper street. The  lowering of Greenwood street left the  water main above the frost line. The  pipe had to be raised and buried deeper.  The flume constructed to carry off the  waters of Twin creek was left high  above the street and a new flume had  to be constructed. That the grade-was  altered anyone looking at the Wallace-  Miller block or the Bealey building in  which H. B. Munroe does business, can  easily see. Both these buildings were  erected after Mr. C.yE. Shaw gave the  grade for Copper street and both now  stand from 12 to 18 iuches above grade.  The Hunter-Kendrick block would be  in a similar position but it came.out  in evidence in the Rendell & Co. vs.  the city, that Mayor Hardy gave the  city engineer instructions to raise the  grade in order to conform to the Hunter-Kendrick building.  Unfortunately for Mayor Hardy's  position and the ratepayers, the courts  do not look kindly upon political  tactics of this nature. Rendell & Co.  seeing   that  their  protests were un  availing took the matter into the courts  and secured $6,500 damages together  with costs. This with the costs of the  city totalled about $9,000. The coun- '  cil affected a compromise with Rendell  & Co. for $5,000, each side to pay its  own costs, but the mayor is endeavoring to thwart the council in its efforts  to secure a reduction of this fee for  damages, by refusing to sign the agreement covering this compromise.  It is naturally followed that since_  Rendell & Co.'s block was left 18 .  inches above grade that of Miller Bios,  on the opposite side of Greenwood  street, would be similarly affected.  So Miller Bros, also brought suit for  damages against the city which will  be tried iri a short time.  So much for trying to get even with  Rendell & Co.    His  next victims were  to   be  Messrs. Wood   and Galloway.  They with the Canadian Pacific Railway company own the greater portion  of  the land above Deadwood street. .  In order to improve the party, at their  own   expense,   they cut a channel to ,  straighten  Boundary   creek,    but   in  order, to   afford   a good   drainage for _  their lots it was necessary to keep a'  waterway  free  along the old bed of -  Boundary creek.   Mr. W. S. Fletcher  in   building the Auditorium building  made     provision    for     this. '  Then  the city began  to   grade   Deadwood  street.   Under7the mayor's direction-  the. grading, .was-'.about to be carried*,  out without making provision, for the*  culvert  on  the  old��� creek bed.   Mr.,.  Wood went to him^ pleaded  with him,  but  the   mayor was obudurate.   Mr." ���  Wood   in  his anger told the mayor a-  thing or two.   He said:* "I know what -  you want.   You want to dam up what  you  call   the swamp and next spring-  when  high water comes you want to  come down here and see water running  oyer our,; property and then you can*  jeer and say and,  "What a nice town-  site!"   Other members of the council  reasoned with the mayor but the cul-  yert didn't go in.   Mr. Wood's words  came true.   In the spring of  the year  high water carrie and having no outlet  it  backed  up and  flooded the valley.'  The mayor was there and saw it but  history   does    not  state  whether  he  sneered at the nice townsite.     *      .'  Unfortunately again for the mayor's  reputation  and  the  ratepayers there  were others Reside the  townsite -and  the C.P.R. affected.   Mr. Waterland-  had built and was running a large hotel  when   the waters came into his house  and yard, damaging his property.   He  began an action against the city and  the .mayor in his eagerness to escape  the consequences of his actions of tast  year, swore at the examination for discovery   that a stone culvert had been  built  across Deadwopod street.   This  evidence would in all probability have  knocked  the  Waterland  case into a I  cocked hat were it not for the fact that!  the city engineer was a witness after!  Mr.   Hardy   and he of course told thel  truth   by  stating  that no culvet had|  been built.   The result of the Water-  land  case  is  told in another column.  Another burden is added to those already carried by the ratepayers.   The!  most surprising part of the whole mat-l  ter" is^that Rendell-& - C��.��� are-still!  doing businees and the townsite company has not yet gone into liquidation.  The   mayor  should either assure thel  ratepayers that he has satiated his ap-|  petite   for getting after his political!  opponents,   or   the ratepayers should!  tell him that they do not care to put up!  any longer,  THE CITY COUNCIL.

Di-ncan Ross : Editor.  ^uNiON(j|yJLAB_i_>  WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1900.  WORKING TOGETHER.  On March 1st, 1898. there was was a  general election in the Province of  Ontario. The Liberals who had been  in power for some twenty years were  almost defeated, the election being so  close that for some weeks it was  thought the Liberal government would  be forced to resign. There was nothing in the record of the party that  would call for the wiping out of a large  majority and the writer of this article  who happened to be in the east at that  time askeJ a level-headed and far seeing politician why the election was so  close: "What was the matter with the  Ontario Liberals?" "There is nothing  the matter," was the reply. "The  Liberals of Ontario simply sat down  and preached about their glorious  record during eighteen or twenty  y._ars of power instead of being up and  doing and fighting the enemy. They  deserved a beating."  What is true of political parties is  also true of cities. In this age of competition there is no letting up in the  contest for supremacy. The records  of past achievements are of little practical value in the present," nor in the  future; neither are natural advantages  unless exploited by united and determined citizens. It is present action  that counts. Micwabers waiting ��� for  something to turn up because natural  ��� conditions are favorable never made a  | city.  There is a tendency in some quarters  I to make a division of labor in the up-  Ibuilding of Greenwood. Some are  lanxious that a few should do the work,  fa number should do nothing and a  rgreat many ^should-sneerrat-the few  [who are endeavoring to work in the  [city's interest. This division of labor  lis not calculated to benefit a city.  IThere must be a united effort. The  [people of Greenwood should take a les-  json from the people of Seattle who are  Jail the time working for Seattle.  These thoughts are suggested by the  jfact that in a short time  there will be  la   splendid  opportunity  to   bring the  lidvantages of the city to the attention  _f outside business  men.    Early next  li. ear two smelters will  be in operation  l.iere.    The annual meeting of the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  Jritish  Columbia  will  be he'd in  the  pity,   insuring the presence of representative   business   men from all the  lowns of the  interior.    Iu   addition to  |his the local Board of Trade is arranging   for   a business  men's excursion  Irom   the   coast and  elsewhere to the  Iity.    By united effort the excursion in  [onjunction with  the  meeting of   the  |i.:_sociated   Boards   of  Trade can   be  giade of the  greatest benefit   to   the  fay-  To  insure success, concerted action  In the part of the citizens is  required.  ['he   local board  of Trade should be  hade a strong body.    It should include  lyery man who is interested in the city.  they   should   not be  satisfied with a  jominal membership,  but they should  I', workers, and they should keep their  lues paid up.   It should be the aim of  Very  citizen   to   do  his  part towards  |aking the business men's excursion  [huge success.  f.The'pat-icea for hard times is hustlers  lid rustlers who work together, stand  Jgether and go ahead with some defi-  Ite object in yiew.  TO BRITISH FOR THEM.  1 Pamphlet No. 6 " quotes Sir Wil-  jd Laurier's words in London in  P7 when he declared that if ever the  Eipire should be in danger thc colonies  would be read3' to help and adds, "this  was a solemn promise and was kept."  Then follows a furious tirade against  the premier for his practical loyalty  and his imperial policy. It is too  British for the compilers of Pamphlet  No. 6.  Sir Charles Tupper repudiates Pamphlet No. 6 tn Ontario, where-it would  never have been heard of but for the  Liberal press, but he.carefully'avoids  repudiating it in Quebec where it is  intended to accomplish its sinister purpose. Such a straightforward course  is too British for Sir Charles Tupper.  Sir Charles Tupper inveighs against  the Laurier preferential tariff and demands a quid pro quo which he knows  perfectly well is unobtainable at the  present time. The Laurier policy has  increased Canada's trade with Great  Britain over 100 per cent in three years  It is too British for Sir Charles Tupper.  Sir Charles Tupper has an anti-  imperial pro-French policy for Ontario and the west. Through his lieutenants he is vainly endeavoring to revive religious strife also by telling the  people in ' Quebec ,,that the Mauitoba  school question is not settled, though  his own right hand man ���Hugh John  Macdonald���declares in Ontario that it  is Sir Charles will not lift a finger to  assist in the work of welding together  yet more strongly the diverse elements  of race and creed which exisil in Canada. Such a course would be too  3ritish for Sir Charles Tupper.  Sir Hibbert Tupper took.occasion to  make all kinds of charges against the  course of the minister of .the interior  in connection .with the government of  the Yukon, and against the x*ersoual  and official character of those charged  >vith the administration of the country.  He has not dared to repeat these  charges outside of* parliament where  the courts could reach him���nor has he  withdrawn his unproved allegations  made in parliament. Such a course  would be too British for Sir Hibbert  Tupper.  Mr. Foster compares the partial expenditures of 1895-96 with the full expenditure of subsequent Liberal j-ears,  and he also denies the authenticity of  his own estimates prepared for presentation to parliament had his own  government obtained a new lease cf  power. He refuses to compare "Grit  and Tory expenditures by the same  rule and conditions. Such a course  would be too British'for Mr. Foster.'���"  Hugh John Ma.doii-ld is an ultra-  protectionist in Eastern Canada, but in  Manitoba he is a free-trader in all  matters where free trade would catch  the farmers, He would take the last of  the duty- off agricultural implements,  though both Tupper and Foster have  declared for au increase. He dare not  face the farmers of Manitoba with the  policy he supports down east. He is  not contenl with one consistent policy  for the whole Dominion. Such a  course would be too British for Hugh  John Macdonald.      V-'.,- . ���  Candidates supporting the imperial  government in its recent appeal to tl e  electors did not hesitate to claim credit  to the government for "the almost unprecedented prosperity " the country  is enjoying. - Tory campaigners ridicule and indignantly protest against  any such suggestions on behalf of the  Canadian government.  MINISTER OF FINANCE.  Hon. Mr. Turner's visit to the ci*y  should result in the government giv-  ing-~-greater--atteiition-to those public  requirements whicli are so essential in  a city of Greenwood's size and importance. As Mr. Turner said, members  of the government who never visited  places like Greenwood, cannot have  the same interest in?matters appertaining to the city when they come up for  consideration. It is only after a personal visit that a minister can appreciate and disscuss intelligently the  requirements of a city. We feel sure  that now Mr. Turner has seen the city  and knows something about the people,  we should have another ardent champion in Victoria.  While strong criticisms were directed  against the government of which Mr.  Turner was the head, there were indeed  but few who did not appreciate the  integrity of the premier. It is not to  Mr. Turner's discredit that he has been  charged with making mistakes as a.  politician, aud while his political opponents found fault with the government which he led,it siys mu.h for his  personal popularity that he was asked  by both sides of the house to take the  office of ageot-general in London. Mr.  Turner is well qualified to fill the  position. He has a good general knowledge of the resources and requirements  of the province, he is in touch with  London financiers and has those personal qualifications that fit him for the  office.

Turner, minister of finance,  in the provincial g-overnment, paid  Greenwood a short visit on Thursday  last. J, F. Hemenway, of the Old  Ironsides company, drove him down  from Phoenix in the morning- aud he  left the city by' the afternoon train.  Mr. Turner would have remained  longer in the district but he had to return to the coast hurriedly.  Shortly* after his arrival  here, Mr.  Galloway,  president of the Board of  Trade, aud other members met him at  the Greenwood club and discussed matters   of local interest with him.   Mr.  Turner'  in   responding- to the welcome  tendered  him by the board expressed  his pleasure at being- at   last able to  visit the   Boundary country.   He had  for several years wished to visit  the  ' district and was disappointed in so doing several times.   He 'stated lhat the  government  was anxious to meet the  'wishes of the people of the district for  business reasons. ��� The encouragement  os the development of.a rich mining  ;distri(.t   such   as   this assured an  increase iu revenue.   He then briefly rc-  fpirred  to   the   condition   of   the pro-  vfhcial  finances,    "While  the'  "Was coming-.-in niore  , expectations, the expenditure still &_���  ceeded the revenue by many thousand  dollars.   It would be unwise to float a  loan at.the present time owing to the  unfavorable condition - of   the- Kondon  market so that they were compelled to  secure overdrafts from tbe'bjinl-:.  .Under the circumstances the3* were forced  to- curtail what-were'considered necessary expenditures, but he assured lhe  people of Greenwood that the govern-  j were anxious to do everything- in their  (���power to meet their requirements.    He  (was anxious lo  have  the views of the  t Board'of Trade and suggested  the ap-  fpoititment of a secretaryjo note the re-  Iquirements'mentioned so that he might  J,be 'able lo place them before the other  |meu.bers of the government.  After the appointment of Mr. Pringle  is secretary, the local barristers made  >ut what Mr. Turner acknowledged,  j-vas a strong case in favor of sittings  |*f the Supreme court here. Mr.White-  liide referred to the number of Supreme  pourt cases emenating fromGreem\ o *d,  |md to the great expense to litigants  Iirising from sending witnesses in  Bocal -cases lo Rossland. He pointed  |ut that that it was an' easy matter  Ivith a good railway seivice and the  [test- of - hotel- accommodationyfor a  judge to come to Greenwood. Police  lagistrate Hallett pointed out the  {.real expense occasioned by sending  irisoners from here to await trial,  (ringing them back to elect speedy  Hal and sending them"lagain to Kam-  |>ops if committed. There should be  suitable jail in Southern Yale, so  jji^t' this great'exuense to the province  mid tie 'avoided. Mr. Turner ap-  I'epiated the force of; the remarks rela-  lye to sittings of / the Supreme court  id.saw no good reason why the mat-  tr could not be arranged. In reference  ;*-a.-jai., if Greenwood got a court  g>use and suitable quarters for the  (ivernment office, it would not likely  Rita jail,  ���President Galloway. brought up the  tiestion of the V.

Mr. Dunsmuir, the  premier,  is fully in accord- with his views on  lilway construction and next session  comprehensive  scheme of railway  {Instruction will be introduced.  [Mr. Turner also dwelt on the import-  lice.of placing- .the London office on a  Itter tbasis  and was pleased to learn  ��at;the Greenwood Board of Trade, as  ��� member of the -Associated Boards,  Id:-urged  upon  the government the  Icessity of action in this matter.   He  Iked the local board to again talje up  Matter at the annual meeting to be  id-'in January so that the hands of  : government might be strengthened  {their intention of making this office  redil and a benefit to the province,  own name had  been nientioned in  inection with th_e office and he was  to confess that as he was getting-;  to be an old man, a nd had a general  knowledge of the requirements of the  province, he would like' to take the  office, provided he could arrange to'  take it. He gave his views regarding  where the office should be and what it  should do. He also 'agreed with the  board as to the importance of the Glasgow exhibition and believed that the  province should be properly represented  there.  Mr. , Thruston was ', present, and  speaking as the representative of English capital, pointed out the U-.eli.s--  ness of the present London office arid  the great need of one conducted along  the lines suggested by Mr. Turner.  Mr. Turner also discussed the Greenwood hospital with Doctors Jakes and  Oppenheimer, who were present, and  promised to take the matter tip u^on  his return to the capital with-a view to  placing it on a similar footing as other  hospitals in the matter of government  aid. *  Mr. Turner, in responding to a vote  of thanks, regretted that he could not  remain longer with the people of Green*  wood, butjhis colleague, Hon. Mr. McBride, minister of mines, would be hei e  this fall and he hoped that he would be  able to give more time to this import*  ant mining district.  .

Ottawa, Oct. 25.���The militia department has received a report from  Colonel Otter covering the events from  September 8 to 14, which time the regrettable incidents referred to in the  Toronto dispatch yeBterday occurred,  Colonel Otter in'brief says the war  office asked for information as to how  many of the first contingent were willing to remain till the close of the war,  No action was taken on the same day;  that the communication was received.  The following day I/ord Roberts  visited the regiment and expressed  the hope that all would remain on account of the bad impression their departure would make among the other  Colonials. The day following, Otter  says, he received letters from the  captains of "C," '%" "F," aud "H"  companies, sto the effect that all the  members' wished to return home. A  letter was also received from the captain of *!I)" company to the effect that  32 of his number wanted to return and  12 were willing to remain. The result  was that all these companies were  ordered home, Loid Roberts expressing-  regret at the action of the men and intimating alsothat their service' would  probably not be required. Col. _. Otter  gives the parade strength of the regiment as follows: 285 invalided to England, 35 killed and died of wounds; 26  of disease, 17 transferred, 780 in the  field. Col. Lessard reports 113 of his  command on ihe sick list.

There was a big array of witnesses and the case "occupied the time  of  the  court from Friday to Monday  evening when the- jury gave the above  award.   The  strong point in favor oi  Mr. Waterland was brought out in Mr.  Robert Wood's evidence. When grading  Deadwood street, the mayor was.  urged to put in an adequate culvert to  carry off the water from the old Boundary   creek, channel, but this was not  done and when the high water came it  backed   up   and flooded, thei Miners'  hotel.

The  jury's award is considered veryhigh  and more than meets any damages  that Mr. Waterland sustained.  Mayor Hardy returned from Nelson  on   Monday   and   the rest of the witnesses   came   in on yesterday's train.  The decision emphasizes the fact that  the   city  is pursuing a suicidal course  in allowing so many suits to be tried  against  it.   The success of litigants  will   only encourage others  and it is  evident   that municipal blunders will  not be justified by judge or jury.  REV. FATHER PALMER  Presented With Purse and Address at  Grand Forks. ,  A   very   interesting ceremony took  . place  in  the Catholic church on Sunday,  14th  inst.   The members of the  congregation,    gathered    during   the  afternoon and surprised Father Palmer  by presenting him with  a well filled  purse and a beautiful  address.   Mr.  Rice   opened   the   proceedings   by re-  g arking that as this was the last Sunday they could claim as their  pastor  Father Palmer who was to leave immediately   for Spokane to assume the  duties of his new charge at Main street  church,  the congregation had decided  to seize the opportunity for expressing  their deep appreciation of the reverend  gentleman's   good   qualities  and   the  noble work done during his three years  sojourn  in  the district, and called on  Mr.   A. Sweeney to read the address,  which was as follows:  "To the Rev. Wm. Palmer:   We, the  members of   Sacred Heart congregation, learning with regret that you are  about to leave this parish for a larger  field, take this opportunity  of testifying our lasting gratitude to you for the  great   and noble work  accomplished  during the three short years you have  labored in this mission.

The Future Metropolis of Southeastern  British Columbia,  THE LAND OF GOLDER OPPORTUNITIES.  Manufacturing and Commercial Center of the Famous  Boundary' DLtrict���Historical Sketches and Mercantile Reviews of the Leading Wholesale  and  Retail  Merchants  There are not many people who  have not "heard favorably of  GreenwoodT"** But the number of  those who, have studied the  7 causes of theOmarkable growth  and development' witnessed here  are few as yet.  Greenwood though practically  - a young city, has long since ceas-  to be an experiment, and today is  recognized as the coming city, of  Southeastern -British'.I'Columbia.  The pillars upon which its ulti-  .mate prosperity is founded are of  ^a" most suBstantial character, offering the staunchest guarantee  for the" city's ultimate   brillant  future.    Strange tp say the historians   has  used but little'Qink-  *.' either examining itito'br discrib-  ,ing  the .history. of this part bf  British Columbia; or .-the City of  * Greenwood, s  Why,"' cannot   be  ."conjectured," not" surely   on   ac-  " count of dearth of material for  - the early history of British Col-  y umbia  abound  in. legends   and  Tomances that outrival the tales  and myths of classic tunes. It is  a history, .repletey with chivalry;  - of sturdy adventurers, "of "the" Indian and his depredations and opposition to the _trea.de of advancing civilization; a 4tory of privation, starvation and ultimate  success; a* tale of men withuhearts  of oak-and nerves of steel, who  know no fear and' who were the  pioneers that blaze<T the trails,  made the toads, .found the mines,  and made .possible the glorious  future that, is even now unfolding its wings of gold and- makes"  this both a heaven and home, for  all who spek the shelter of its  hospitable area;" and it is this  city, so replete with everything  that constitutes the nuclues of a  great mining metropolis that we  will endeavor to portray to our  readers, that they may have some  idea of its trades, manufacturies  and industries7~of bur prosperity  and of the -possibilities of the  future.    In so* doing the writer  - will make no-' pretentions to', a  flowery flow of language, nor  exaggerated assertions, but confine himself as nearly as possible  to facts giving statistics as they  have been gathered irom the best  ..authorities from time to time and  in writing of these so7closely are  : we connected with the surrounding country that some discription  must  be   given  of   that    also.  ' Therefore we will commence with  THE BOUNDARY DISTRICT.  The Boundary district comprises a country reaching from  the divide or water shed between  the Okanagan *and Kettle river  valleys <>ri.tlie west and Christina  }&kg on the east a distance of  same 60 mjies, and from the In-  . ternational boundary line on the  south to a distance of "some 30  rniles north.  This entire scope of country is  . literally covered with mines,  prospects and claims, and while  there are hundreds worthy of  mention we^ will in this, short  sketch only speak of the most  important ones..- Commencing on  _.���7the west side~":---       - '  :;���* "   7.r'     "CAMP MCKINNEY      :  which isa little south of west  some 40 miles from .Greenwood, a  gold proposition carrying some  silver : is ^he principal camp.  Cariboo a mine in the .Camp Mc-  yKinney district is the principal  producer and thii mine has paid  large dividends. " :  -.;'���- Then cbmiiig* east and north  from Camp McKinney to a distance some 30 miles from Greenwood is what |s known, as, the������"  WEST FORK  county- which is practically under  yeloped. " There are a large  number of very fine -prospects in  this section. Many of them have  a considerable amount of development work dpne and some of  them have shafts sunk to a depth'  of ' 100 feet. -Another very fine  mineral  belt is located about 30  miles np the main river from  Rock Creek and about 25 miies  from Greenwood at  - 7 CANYON CREEK  The ore here is principally gold  bearing quarts and some fine assays have been received from  this district. --Coming,- -farthur  east the mines begin to develope  copper and located some seven  miles from Greenwood is what is  known as       '- .-   -  /i COPPER CAMP.  There are quite a numberyof ,pror  mising-claims in this camp, but  very -little work has been done.  The King Solomen probably being the most developed, while  the promises .are that .several of  the" other claims will be pushed  in the near future. Then-coming  on east" we: come to'  - DEADWOOD CAMP    -  laying only from one toythree  miles from. Greenwood, here is  located the famous Mother Lode  mine,"also the Sunset and Crown  Silver, all copper claims-and producers, the Morrison, the Buck-  harn, -the Great Hopes,' the  Marguerite and *th�� D; H. and  Gold Bug group will be producers  as soon, as thg -  british columbia copper co.,  ltd,, smelter  is completed, which is now under  construction and waiting for  machinery^ that is expected to  arrive at* ally time. We are informed _f_rom_good authority that  the furnaces will be blown in,by  the 1st or 15th of December this  year._. The Mother lode - mine  alone has 100,000,000tons ,of ore  blocked out above the 200 foot  level. This mine is owned by  the British Columbia Copper Co.,  Ltd. and the smelter spoken of  abovess being built by this com-  panyif and is located practically  in the City of Greenwood.  THE STANDARD COPPER, CO.'S  ,-   PYRITIC SMELTER  being erected three miles south  of town will also be completed  and receiving ore by aboue Dec.;  15th, 19007 There are two other  prospective smelters spoken "of  that people wlio" are on the inside  inform us" that there is no question but will be built and receiving ore within six months from  date, and as all the many camps  surrounding Qreenwppd needs to  make them nqt qnly producers,  but largg dividend payers is  smelting facilities, and as there  is enough ore in sight tq keep the  two smelters nearly completed as  well 'as the two proposed ones  running for an indeflnate. time  there is no question hut the proposed ones will be a reality in the  time- mentioned. Returning to  the different camp of the district  we will norw go-north eight miles,  there is located what is known as  . LONG LAKE. CAMP.       ...  Here milling 7 and concentrating  gold ore is.found, the best known  claim there.is the Jewel, which is  developed to a depth of 300 feet,  has a large quantity^of ore blocked out ready for tb^e uh!V Then  eight rniles to the tiorth'east"is  -  SUMMIT  CAMP  The best known claim there is the  B. C, which is at this time sending out to the Trail smelter 150  tons of high grade copper ore per  day. South of Summit and east  of Greenwosd five miles is  PHOENIX  CAMP.  here are located the Miner-Graves  group including the Old Ironsides  Knob Hill, Victoria, Grey Eagle,  also the Dominion Copper Co.'s  group, the most important claims  of which are the Brooklyn, Stem-  winder, Idaho and Rawhide; and  the Snowshoe, Gold Drop and  War Eagle each owned by a  seperate Co., and there are other  promising claims in -this camp  which we have not space.to mention. The Ironsides '. and Knob  Hill are smelting 600 tons of ore  "per day. Then again going, east  we come to  WELLINGTON  CAMP.    .  eight miles east of Greenwood,"  here we find high grade gold  copper ore, with several promising claims and , three properties  shipping, the Golden Crown, .the  Winnipeg arid . the Athelstan  about i2 cars of ore per week.  Then to the south about 10 miles  from Greenwood-we come to  CENTRAL-CAMP.  The present producers here are  the Lincoln and City of Paris.  Then coming nearer the City we  come to  smith's camp  three miles south, which is a very  fine group, consisting of the Republic, the Nonsuch and the Last  Chance, which have large bodies  of ore nearly.-ready for 'the  smelter.   Then-  PROVIDENCE AND SKYLARK CAMPS  laying oxr the eastern slope of  Boundary Creek, these, veins are  small high-grade silver, and  gold leads.    Thento-the north is  KIMBERLY CAMP  some ei^ht miles up Boundary  Creek from Greenwood, these  mines all have large bodies of  low grade copper pre.  Besides -the mining interests  this ,sectior_ of the country has  large    S " .' ,  -   lumbering"  interests. The mountains are  covered with' a luxurant growth  of fur,' pine and tamarack, there  also being -a little to the west of  us"one of 4he finest cedar belts in  British Columbia- There are  numerous saw mills * scattered  over the entire district employing  a large force of men in chopping  and logging, and millions of feet  of lumber yar�� produced each year  besides the enormous amount of  timbers required for-the mines,  and in the different camps and  towns are numerous plaining  mills, sash and door factories,  etc. The lumbering interests of  this districts would in a few years  alone support-a -town the size of  Greenwood, and as the supply is  almost _ inexhaustible, \ ��� this industry is bound to continue to increase. .  GREENWOOD  was laid out out and platted on  the Dark,Horse mineral claim in  May, 1895: / The .townsite at that  time was covered with heavy timber which was cleared off and the  .first work untertaken by Mr.  Robert Wood, the townsite  owner, was connecting the town  by wagon road with the various  camps in . the surrounding country. Some lots were sold that  fall and in the spring of '96 the  town began to forge ahead.  About this time Mr. Wood was  joined by Mr. C. Scott Galloway  and the Greenwood Townsite  Company was formed, disposing  qf quitVa. pqrtiqn to the C. P. R.  Co..,' which'was at that time contemplating building here, and  which began running trains to  this place in '99. All camps on  the hills.around the town are connected with this road by spurs  from the main line. - The principal ones branching off from  Greenwood, which has steadily  grown without any rush or boom  until now at the age of only five  years she has a  POPULATION        '��� y,;  pf over 3000 souls. Every branch  of business represented, several  manufacturing establishments,-1 a  tf ew solid wholesale concerns, twq-  smelters, almost completed, good  schools, several churches, a fine  opera house, business men's club  $n incorporated board of trade,  three banking, houses  and five  agencies here'. There are two  breweries, a fine steam laundry,  there is also a Trades and Labor  Council representative of the local  unions, of the'Miners', printers',  carpenters', tailors' painters',  clerks' and plumbers and iron  workers.  Greenwood also has more members of the profession-���medical,  legal, civil and ini:iingengineers,  surveying, etc., that are bouafide  residents of the city than any  other town in the district. There  are from here  STAGE   LINES  running to Phoenix, to the upper  main Kettle-river and its several  tributaries,' to Camp McKinney,  Fairview, Similkameen and the  Myers creek and Okanagan  camps south of the International  boundary line. Two telegraphs  and two telephone systems.  There are also two  NEWSPAPERS  published in the town, The  Greenwood Times, Duncan Ross  publisher and manager, and The  Greenwood Miner, J. W. Grier,  publisher and manager,   -  In municipal matters-the City  owns its own  WATER WORKS SYSTEM  the plant being in excellent condition has a gravity pressure of  120 lbs to the^ square inch which  affords ample protection in case  of fire. We also have an excellent    '--__,  FIRE DEPARTMENT  and whsle the chief is the only  salaried member the' rest being  being volunteers the company is  capable of excellent service.  They are supplied with hose  carts and hook and ladder trucks,  the fire hall is located on the  lower floor of the city, hall building and is an honor to the City.  We also have an  ELECTRIC LIGHT .PLANT-  and while this is controlled by a  private company the service is  good.  Greenwood is very fortunate as  regards   '  \ SCHOOLS.  They have a fine school!building  -built by the government, the  townsite company donating ,one  whole block" pf ground for the  erection of the building, The  best of teachers are in charge and  every educational, facilities are  afforded, for'children.' We, also1  have most' of the  The opportunities  for  investment and advantages  offered  CAPITALISTS  are almost unlimited, and it is  the writer's honest conviction  that no better or safer investments, offering a surer or larger  return on the amount invested, be  it large or small, can be found today on the North American continent, than in Greenwood.  When one comes to study the  advantages offered, and take into  consideration the importance of  the location of Greenwood, in the  midst of one of the greatest copper fields the world has ever  known, property is redicilously  low, and in real estate alone  there is bound to be thousands of  dollars made in the next twelve  months. The place, as well as  her mines, have been held back  ori account of railroad facilities,  the great cost of shipping machinery and supplies, but now  that the C..P..R,- has built to the  city, this has in a way been overcome', and the shipping of ere by  some of the mines, the buj ��� ling  of two and the starting of two  more smelters is the result, and  from now on the place as well as  mines will advance more rapidly.  There is also a proposed  TRAMWAY ROAD,  to connect Greenwood with  Phoenix^' and to ultimately be  built to Deadwood camp on the  west, Long Lake camp on the  north and Summit camp on the  north-east. This road from  Greenwood to Phoenix at least  will be built the coming year,  and it is almost a certainty that  the C. P. R, will commence work  on the Crow's Nest pass road  from Greenwood on through to  Vancouver, passing through the  Similikameen and Okanagan  country, and making them tributary to Greenwood from a wholesale standpoint. It is also expected that the  GREAT NORTHERN   RAILROAD  will build into the city within a  year or two at most. Several  surveying parties have been out  'and'We are. informed thatysome  portions of the road . have been  located.  to be appreciated, and we have  followed the settling of new  countries from the Missouri river  to the Pacific coast, and have,  seen these things accomplished ;.  yet. we are free to say we "have  never seen a country or a town  under the sun with the natural  resources and offering the opportunities that does this section in  common, and Greenwood in particular.  And as a fitting conclusion to  the foregoing, and to give final  emphasis to the grand truths  concerning the importance of the  trade, commerce and manufacturing of Greenwood and to the  country at large, we now ask the  privilege of introducing to all  our readers the representative  business establishments of the  city. And in so doing" we flatter  onrselves that a more'satisf actory  leave taking could not be conceived, for unquestionably there  must be a stong desire on the part  of those into whose hands these  papers fall, to become more  thoroughly familiar with the individual-character of a community that evinces such-a spirit of  modern day progressiveness and  courageously pushes aside every-  obstacl ethat dares to obstruct the  fiuition of its' ambition to become  prominent through the arts of  peace and industry.
