If the old saying be.true, "that where  there- is much smoke there must be  fire," then British Columbia is going  to have some additional railways in a  short time. The much smoke comes in  innumerable applications for railway  charters, both at Ottawa and Victoria,  and it is reasonable lo suppose that of  the many at least a few will be granted  and a few railways constucted- Some  of the applications are for railways into sections that are full of promise and  only need transportation facilities to  reveal their mineral wealth. Among  the latter is the application made by  Robert Wood, James Kerr and others  for a railway from. Rock creek to Vernon which will pass through the rich  West Fork country ^ This railv/ay will  have the additional merit of connecting- the rich farming district of Okanagan with the mining district south of  it, thus furnishing a good market for  the products of the farm.  The preliminary steps for locating  the route were taken this week when  C. __B. Shaw, C. E.., and James Kerr  left for "West Fork. They intend following the West Fork for a considerable distance then turning to the left  to come out at the Mission. The trip  will be made ou snowshoes and will ocr  cupy several days. * -  An injunction case, which may result in closing down the Republic mill  at Republic, Wash., has been instituted in the Federal court. The action  is based on an alleged infringement of  patent rights in the ore roasting furnaces, said to be used at the Republic  property; The suit is brought by  Horace F. Brown,through his solicitor,  Samuel R. Stern of Spokane. The  case is apparently one of a number  that have been commenced against  alleged infringers, as the complaint  has   been   prepared   in printed form."  - Messrs Price and Owen, of Quebec,  arrived iu the city-last week; They are  interested in the "Pyritic smelter and  the mining companies of which Mr.  I^aidlaw is manager. Mr. Owen returned home today, but Mr. Price will  remain here until after the blowing in  of the smelter.-  J. G.

Everything Conveniently Arranged.  ", The British Columbia Copper company's smelter is completed. Everything is in readiness for the "blowing  in" but owing to the Crow's Nest Coal  company being unable to supply the  necessary coal or' the C.-P. R. being  unable;or unwilling to haul the same,  that interesting ceremony must again  be postponed untij next week. Where  the fault lies cannot be determined by  the ordinary individual and as no royal  commission is available for the purpose of sifting grains of truth from  the* well filled bins of romance that  have been built tip by the energetic  and versatile supporters of both powerful corporations, there is nothing to do  but to> wait.' The smelter stands qp  the'hill looking over Greenwood, complete in every detail ��� an eloquent  .tribute to the enterprise of the British  Columbia Copper company and  to the genius of its superintendent,  Mr. Paul Johnson.  A description of the plant and buildings should prove interesting on the  eye of putting it into active operation.  The reduction works of .the British  Columbia Copper company are situated  within a few minutes walk from the  Greenwood postoffice at the junction of  Boundary and Copper creeks.. The site  selected.Tis ,.a most advantageous one,  consisting of 70 acres. It is traversed  by. the Columbia & Western, railway,  giving adequate rail connections and  there is also ample ground for dumping  slag, etc. The adjacent creeks supply  all water requirements. The topography of the ground allowed the  works to be built with a view to handling by the gravitation principle of the  ore- from its receipt in the upper ore  bins until it goes to the furnace. While  the plant was mainly built for the  treatment of the ore of the Mother  Eode mine, in Deadwood camp, it will  also handle custom work. Its location  is a natural smelting center for Boundary "district ores, as a half-dozen mining camps surround Greenwood at a  distance, not to exceed 10 miles in any  one direction, all having a down-hill  grade to the works.  Starting.at the upper end of the  works are the receiving ore bins, six in  number. . Accross the top run two  parallel railway tracks. Each has a  a^_hplding capacity of 500 tons, or a  total oT^3.00<J"toiis"."^ 'ThTfof^ffoii  these bins is drawn into ore cars and  i  run down a slightly inclined track to  THREE  MEETINGS.  A   Busy Week for the City  Fathers,  THE  FIRE   DEPARTMENT  Meets the Council and Discusses Fire  Chief and Other Matters���The  Business Transacted.  -  the sampling building.  The sampling building is a frame  structure, three-story high, with corrugated iron roof. In size 79x65x58  feet. Its present capacity for sampling  aud crushing is 300 tous.each 12 hours.  Everything is done automatically from  the time the ore is dumped into the big  receiving crusher until its sample is  sent to the bucking room. The building is so arranged that additional.sets  of crushers aud samplers may be installed and treble-the capacity can be  obtained when ��� desired. The set machinery installed consists of three Gates  crushers, four Johnson samplers, one  pair Reliance rolls and an elevator.  The plant is driven by 16x18 Erie City  engine, rated at 100-horse power at 100  pounds steam pressure. The steam  for same being taken from the main  boilers by a five-inch steam pipe line,  400 feet in length.  The ore from the sample discard bins  is drawn off into ore cars and carried  out over the ore-mixture bins and  dumped into same. These are arranged  in four parallel rows, three in length.  These 12 bins each have a holding  capacity .500 tons, or a total of 6,000  tons, the whole complex being covered  by ���e high corrugated iron roof, having  a length of 152 and a width of 52 feet.  Crossing these bins at right angles are  two parallel -railway tracks and midway between space has been left far a  third. These railway spurs, besides  bringing down ore, will be used fpr  coke and coal, which are both dumped  into the yard below.  From the mixture bins the ore goes  direct to the feed floor of the furnace  house.   This building is 58 feet wide  by 45 feet in length, by 15^ feet to the  feed floor and 42 feet to the roof. It|is  constructed of solid iron throughout  with cast iron plates for both feed and  furnace floors. The furnace installed  will have a capacity of from 250 to 300  tons daily. It is a stack furnace, the  down take going from 12 feet above  feed floor up some 15 feet and then  down into, the main flue. The dimensions are 42 feet wide by 150 feet long,,  iri.ide at tuyeres, of which there are 10  at each side of 3J�� feet in diameter.  The slag and matte run together continuously out of the furnace through a  tapped spout into a Johnson forehearth  and are then separated, the matte funning continuously out of one spout and  the slag through another into a large  settling pot from which it runs down  into the granulating flume aud is carried away.  The .flue dust chamber runs below  the mixture ore bins. It has has a  length of 620 feet, and is 12 feet wide  by 14 feet in height, of solid masonry  and brick. For the last 215 feet it has  a gradual slope up the hill to the base  of the temporary steel stack, which is  6}4 feet in diameter by 90 feet in height,  giving a total height of 190 feet above  the furnace floor. The flue is extended  beyond the present furnace to allow for  the installation of two additional  stacks.      \  To the north of the furnance house,a  distance of 55. feet is a large frame  building, containing blower, engine  and boiler rooms, in size 100x45 feet.  In the north end is the boiler room,  45x40 feet. Here are located three 100-  horse power horizontal tubular boilers,  66x16 feet, made to stand a pressure of  125 to 130 pounds per square inch.  ���The balance of the building, the south  end, is occupied by engine blower.  The engine is a half of a Reynolds-  Corless 16x36, rated at 150-horse power  with 100 pounds steam pressure. The  foundations are installed so that at  any future date the low pressure cylinder can be added, which will bring the  engine up to a full compound. Running the whole length of the room is  the main shaft, mounted on solid pillar blocks. The blower is No. iyz Con-  hisville, giving 12,000 cubic feet of air  per minute with 150 revolution. There  is also a dynamo of a capacity of 250  "32 candle power-lamps for-'lightirig-the  woiks. '"* 7  It might here be said that the whole  of the smelter machinery was supplied  by the E. P. Allis company of Milwaukee, from plans and designs of  Paul Johnson, E. M., manager of the  works. Much of the machinery,  especially in the sampling mill is of  his own patent.  Water for the works and for use in  the jackets and in granulating the slag  is taken from a dam across Copper  creek, and conveyed lo the site by a 8-  inch pips line, a distance of 2,600 feet.  To this, as a. reserve, is connected a  line to Boundary creek, from which  creek water is supplied by a pump with  a daily capacity iof 1,500,000 gallons,  having its own boiler. The supply  from the Copper creek dam is delivered  at the smelter at a pressure head of  115 feet.  Besides carpenter, store house,blacksmith shop, there are two other handsome buildings on thc site. The  smelter's- superintendent's office and  laboratory, 77x40 feet and the manager's residence.  ,_It may be said here, that so sanguine  are the directors of the company as to  the success of their enterprise, both  mine and smelter, that orders have already been placed Eor a complete converting plant. This will be in operation some some time during; the summer and will be manufactured by the  E. P. Allis company. It is expected  that previous to its installation there  will be additional furnace in operation.  This plant will consist of a 40-ton electric crane, crushing plant, blowing engine and stand of convertors. It will  be tbe first converting plant installed  in the province.  I<ast Thursday evening a special  meeting of the city council was held  when the estimate by-law was advanced a stage. On Friday evening  another special meeting was held to  consider fire department matters and  the members of the volunteer fire department were present. President  Bannerman, of the department, stated  the wishes of the department as follows:  1. A paid fire chief and driver.  2. That the fire chief devote his whole  time to the.duties of his office.  3. That the driver should take orders  only from the chief.  4. That A. I). Hallett be cliief.  5. In the event of A. D. Hallett as  chief not receiving the support,of the  council the department be allowed to  name another pet son for the position.  Themayor was in favor of carrying  out the recommendations of the department, as also was Alderman Sutherland.  Alderman Naden favored procuring  an expert chief.  Alderman Caulfield wanted a strictly  volunteer department.  Alderman Ross was in favor of getting the best man that could be procured for the money.  Alderman Sullivan favored Hallett  as chief, and was also in favor of making him perform other duties besides  those of fire chief.  After some further discussion the  firemen withdrew and a ballot being  taken for the appointment of fire chief  ho decision was arrived at, three being  in favor of- Mr.���Hallett and three  against.  Regarding the ringing of the bell for  other than fire purposes, the petition  from a large number of ratepayers was  considered and it was decided to dis  continue the useof the bell-for church"  purpose-Punti! the clapper; for fire  alarms could be made to work satisfactorily.  - ~-*���^-.TnBffl  f Xxfi.

MORTGAGE  SALE.  Weekly times.  PUBLISHED-BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Company. Limited.  Duncan Ross..  -Editoh.  THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1901.  THE ROSSLAND SPIRIT.  Evidently the good people of Rossland have not yet sufficient confidence  in their own city. They are neither  ready nor willing to apply for their  just rights on the strength of the importance of their citv, but wishing to  "-continue their old habit of sacrificing  the Boundary in order to make-sure  Rossland will get her share of public  conveniences. Some three years ago,  a delegation of the public, spirited  citizens of 'Rosslaud went to Victoria  armed with authority to demand certain needed improvements' from the  provincial government. They were  very successful in getting what they  went after, but it was only by making  themselves strong. Without consulting  the people of the Boundary, the Rossland delegation pointed out what a  good thing (for Rossland) it would be  to have the Boundary district annexed  to that ambitious city. The arguments  used must have been of the most  original description for did not the  honorable, the attorney-general, tell  an amused electorate that Boundary  was annexed to Rossland because the}'  grew copper ore in the Boundary and  treated copper ore at die Trail smelter  and consequently the two districts  should be made one. Since that time  Boundary has been practically disfranchised. Although it had more  voters than many constituencies with  two members it was simply an annex  to the constituency of Rossland.  The Rossland Board of Trade are  evidently anxious to perpetuate the injustice to Boundary. At a recent nieet-  ��� ing of the Board of Trade it was decided that one of the subjects to be discussed, at the annual meeting of the  Associated Boards of Trade would be  "the creation of a new country to be  known as South Kootenay, to include  the Trail Creek Mining Division aud  the whole drainage area of the Kettle  river, generally known as. the Boun-  "'aary"=*"cduhtry.,,Ti**!All'i"this*'iTieans='that-  Rossland wants a resident connty  court judge and in order to make sure  of securing the same, its ambitious  citizens are quite willing to again sacrifice the Boundary.  There is a marked improvement,  however, in the methods, three years  ago the men of Rossland di:l an injustice to Boundary in the dark; today  they are prepared to fight openly.  The union of Rossland and the  Boundary, for either judicial or political purposes, cannot be justified. The  districts are so situated that any such  union is bound to work a hardship on  the Boundary. So long as Rossland  holds the balance of power so long will  Boundary be neglected in the legislature and placed at a disadvantage in  all questions of litigation which may  arise. Rossland should fight its own  battles without sacrificing the Boundary. The Boundary district or rather  Southern Yale from Cascade to Keremeos should be made a county with a  resident county court judge. This district is of sufficient importance and has  snflicient business within its boundaries to'justify such a course. Because  Rossland is not strong enough to travel  alone is no reason why the Boundary  should be continually sacrificed.  The truth is that so far as Southern  British Columbia is concerned, there  has been no attempt to meet the demands for additional judges occasioned  by the very rapid development. During the last year the fact that Judge  Spinks was supposed to hold court in  the different counties in Yale and  Kootenay was simply a travesty on the  administration of justice. There was  sufficient business in the Boundary  alone to keep a judge busy, but as a  matter of fact no court has been held  here  for  six months.*   The people of  Under and by virtue of the powers contained  ina certain mortgage whicli will be produced  at the time of ��a.e, there will be offered for sale  by public auction at the postoffice in the Town  of A uacoiula, in tke District of Yale iu British  CoU.mlna, at the hour of 10 o'clock in the fore-  noo:: "ii Thursday, the 2Slh day of Tebruary.

John De Witt Warner, in a paper contributed to the Christian Herald," suggests the lines along which improvements will be made in the management  of civic affairs during the present century. The program qf improvement  which he outlines is a comparatively  modest one. It should be carried out  long before the new century has grown  old. Certainly, the progress made in  civic government during the nineteenth centurj' was greater than the  progress which would be necessary to  reach the^ideal conditions pictured by  Mr. Warner. As he is an authority on  municipal affairs, it is interesting to  know what Mr. Warner hopes for in  the way of municipal reforms. Here  is his prediction:  Artificial light has��for centuries been  recognized as a necessity of civilized  man and public order. * It is, therefore,  rapidly and certainly coming to be regarded as a want which should be  duectly met by the municipality; and  it is as nearly certain as may be, first,  that public control, and, in general,  public operation of city light plants;  will prevail. And we are tending  rapidly toward a similar policy as to  heat.  As to transport facilities; not. merely  will clean, dry and spacious streets be  the rule, but systems of subway transport will probably be more extensive  than are now surface ones;-while, both  above and underground, the rate of  transport will be such as to approach  a free supply. That is, fares will be  so low, as compared with other factors  in the use of cars, that these self-same  factors, and not expense, will determine their use by each. It ii probable  that, as in the case of water, the expense of individual supply, so free as  not to limit use, will be met by fares  so petty as to be scarcely more than required to prevent waste; and the operation by the city of these "moving highways" will become as much a matter  sf course as is now the repair and pre-*  servation of our streets for pedestrians.  The whole field of express service will  be so extended as to provide not merely  messenger service much more complete  than now, but for the safe carriage and  prompt delivery to _any part of the  municipality of articles deposited at  any other part. Telephone service,  also, will-be correspondingly cheap  and abundant.  One result of increased transport and  communication -facilities will be the  growth of public kitchens, where shall  be prepared the meals of most of our  citizens, which they will receive ready  served, of better quality and more  promptly and regularly than the domestic economy of the average household can hope to furnish them. These  will have been preceded by public  laundries, which will relieve the wage  earner's household of a most important  item of its present discomforts.  It is not easy to predict how shall be  solved the problem of manual labor by  married women. Whether with better  wages and cheaper living th^y will be  in general relieved of other cares than  those of wife and mother? or whether  with more opportunity for self-support  and partially relieved from the present  home duties, the number of wage earners among married women will increase? It is practically certain, however, that the right of everj- child to  good care, nurture and education will  be better protected with every decade;  that day nurseries will be one of the  public facilities soon provided as a  matter of course; and that labor which  takes mothers from their children will  be permitted only in cases where  proper care of all children below school  age is definitely provided for.  Public baths as nearly free as to be  habitually used by all and so numerous  and- extensive as te leave such use unlimited, will be as much a matter of  course as sufficient air for breathing.  Still greater relief, not._nerely to the  poor, but. especially to those of moderate arid large,means, wiil result, from  the complete system of hospitals that,  by-2000, f6f"6"ne who is so ill that he  cannot go about, to remain at his residence'will be as unusual as a hundred  years since it was universal. In every  considerable city, education, to the fullest extent of the capacity of its youth,  will be literally free as air, and, up to  what would now be considered a high  standard, made quite compulsory in  one way or another.  More provision will be made for public recreation. Beautiful sculpture", instructive paintings and fully equipped  libraries will characterize the* typical  city. '  And long before the year 2000 taxation will have been so adjusted as to  encourage, not discourage, the fullest  improvement of land; public franchises  will be so-universally operated direct  by the public, that a street railway  company or private waterworks for  public supply will seem as archaic as  personal government by royal charter,  or the farming of taxes.

C.     }  PRO BONO PUBLICO  The Railway Situation in This  Province*  G   P,   R,   IS    APPEALING  To Canadians to Protect the Country  Against Encroachments of J: J.  Hill���The Arguments Used.  It is generally conceded that Southern British Columbia is one of the  richest mining countries in the world.  It is also conceded, that it will provide  --an.alraos.t incalculable tonnage to a  transportation company or transportation companies doing business within  its boundaries. Today the Granby  Smelting company and the mining  companies associated with it are paying the Canadian Pacific company sufficient money to pay more than the  interest on the cost of the  Columbia and Western railway.  In freight charges on ore, fuel and  transportation of matte, the Granby  company are paying into the coffers of  the C. P. R. over $400 a day or about  S100,500 a year. With the rapid development  of  the  country, with other  -companies -^payLng^similar._J:ribute^to  the C. P. R., the revenue to be derived  from the Boundary country alone is  simply enormous. It cannot be wondered at that the 'Canadian Pacific  Railway company is anxious to maintain its monopoly of the carrying trade  in this country, nor that rival railway  corporations are anxious to secure a  foothold. ��  The Canadian Pacific  Railway company is taking the position   that it is a  Canadian institution whose prosperity  materially depends on the healthy development of Canadian resources and  Canadian   enterprises    and   makes   a  strong   appeal  for  Canadian patriotic  sentiment   to ally  itself   a gainst tlie  encroachments of foreign  railway corporations   who   in     its   opinion   are  anxious   to   secure  a foothold in this  country for the purpose  of exploiting  Canadian resources in thc  interests of  powerful    companies   in   tlie   United  States.    The method adopted to secure  a strong sentiment in favor of railway  monopoly iu British Columbia is as old  as history.    Appeals  to the patriotism  of a country were made before America  was   discovered   and   before .railways  were thought of and such appeals were  often   made    ostensibly  in   the   public interest but really   in  the   interest  of   individual   and   against the public  welfare. Whether in the present agitation  theie  are good grounJs to justify  an   appeal   is   a  matter that must be  carefully considered.    The arguments  of the C. P.   R. and its supporters  are  plausible   and   ingenious   and require  the   most critical analysis in order to  determine the truth.  The .Times believes that the prosperity of the mining districts is to a  very great extent dependent upon the  transportation qtt��stion and that it is  the duty of alt interested in  the   province,   as well as that of the  DIFFERENT  STYLES.

The wheel has  a double set of arms, is made in halves  and . weighs complete about 40,000  pounds. The low pressure air cylinder  has Corless air valves driven by special  valve gear. The inter-cooler connecting the two air cylinders is of the company's most recent water-tube type,  which gave such remarkably good results on a similar compressor shipped  to the same mine last summer. This  makes the third 600-horse power com-  pressbf*" shipped'to^the British -American Corporation, the former two being  direct���connected to compound Corliss  engines. The completed machine  weighs about 150,000 pounds.  Two more compressors will soon be  shipped to the Dominion Coal company  for their mines at Glace Bay, Cape Breton, and one went forward about a  month ago to the same company. Each  of these compressors has two stage air  cylinders 32 inches and 20 inches in  diameter by 38 inches stroke with water  tube inter-cooler between them.
