RENBELL & C  ARE CONSOLIDATED  Robert   Wood and Associates  Transfer Mining Properties  TO JOINT STOCK COMPANY  Description of the Several Claims Held  in Boundary. West Fork and  Penticton Districts.  JLI1 Sperry Company, ��td.  ���������t%%2ri  Robert Wood, of Greenwood, and  others associated with him, have  merged their mining properties into a  company called the Vancouver-Boundary Creek Development and Mining-  company, limited, with a capital of  $500,000 divided into ���; 2,000,000 shares  of 25 cents each. The company has  many valuable interests, including- the  Sally group on the West Fork from  which two carloads were , recently  shipped to the local sm el ter. The ore  is very high grade, running as high as  $500 to the .ton. Below is a brief description of the holdings of the company:  In the Penticton camp the company  has the Okanagan, Klondyke, Torpedo  and Penticton claims.  The principal claim���the Okanagan  ������situated on the east side of Okanagan lake, little over half a mile from  Penticton wharf, runs 200 feet into the  lake and 1,300 feet up the bank 1,300;  has a true fissure lead between granite  walls, averaging so far about 3>_ feet  wide.  The ore is iron and copper sulphides,  carrying gold, silver;'copper and antimony, but chiefly in gold; Samples of  this ore have been tested in different  parts of the world and the average so  far has beeen about $20. A car load  was shipped to the Tacoma smelter  some years ago and 200-pound lots and  half-ton lots have been shipped to  other smelters for tests. There has  been spent on this claim about $10,000  cash. A tunnel was run run into the  bluff from the water's edge about 90  feet, on the lead, and about 40'feet in  from the south of the tunel a shaft was  sunk which is now down to the 100-foot  level and which is timbered up with  a double compartment. It is equipped  with a 35-horse_ power boiler, hoist,  pump, cars, etc., cook house, wharf,  blacksmith shop and ore bins.  The Klondyke is an extension of the  ="���*:  Okanagan claim inland and the Torpedo wraps around the west end and  catches 1,000 feet more of the extension of the lead under the lake.  The Penticton is about \x/2 miles up  Penticton creek, east of the Okanagan  claim, and has a contact lead .of about  10 feet wide of iron sulphides between  lime and granite. This claim crosses  Penticton creek a short distance,covering a splendid water power capable of  supplying power for all the claims in  this camp.  WEST FORK OF KETTLE RIVER.  In this district the company has the  Rob Roy, Sally, Highland Queen, Excelsior, Maple Leaf No. 2, and half interest in the Rosalie. In this group  the Rob Roy and Sally are the most  promising as the leads carry pay-  streaks of higher grade ore than any  other claims the company owns, The  Rob Roy has about $700 worth of work  done on it, composed. of shafts and  crosscuts. This claim has three distinct parallel leads, all of which may  merge into one at depth. The main  one of these leads average about 10 feet  wide on the surface and. has stringers  of high grade ore running through it  assaying as high as 300 per ton.  The Sally is south of the Rob Roy  and has a true fissure galena lead running at right angles to the lead running north and south on the Rob Roy  and crosses the same on the top of the  hill. This claim has about $600 worth  of work done on it composed of crosscuts, and from one of these crosscuts a  tunnel is being run on the lead into  the mountain; this tunnel is now in  pay ore; the lead being about four feet  wide with a pay streak from four to  six inches wide which assays $200 to the  ton. The balance of the lead being  yellow quartz carrying from $5 to $10  per ton and will concentrate. The  Highland Queen joins the Rob Roy  lead on the.south and east���-catches the  big Rob Roy lead on the south end of  the Rob Roy and also catches the Sally  lead east of the Sally, both of these  .leads have been opened by crosscuts on  the Highland Queen.  The Excelsior joins the Highland  Queen and Sally on the south and has  a quartz lead parallel to the Sally lead  caarying pretty fair values. Only one  assessment has been done on it.  The Maple Leaf No. 2, is a copper  proposition further up Beaver creek  from which some very nice samples ��f  copper ore were obtained, but very little work has been done on this claim  yet.  The Rosalie, in which the company.  Owns a half interest, is a gold-quartz  claim from which assays have been  got from $10to $35 per ton.

Stationery,   "Wallpaper,  Office Supplies���-pbone.v:& N.34  In this camp the company has the  Kingston claim, the Boston and the  Houstin���three adjoining claims.  ��� The Kingston, the principal claim in  the group, has about $500 worth of  work done on it, showing up an arsenical iron lead about five feet wide carrying gold values from $10 to $15 per  ton. It has a parallel quartz lead upon  which some cross-cutting has been  done, showing yellow quartz with considerable galeua with gold tellurides  in streaks through it. Assay3 from  pieces of this quartz have run up as  high as $30.  The Boston which lies alongside of  the Kingston has a sugar-quartz lead  which comes up alongside of the diorite  dyke; about $300 worth of work has  been done on this claim, crosscutting  and sinking on the lead. If, by sinking, the quartz lead is found to go  down, it will be a valuable property as  values as high as $125 have been obtained in gold which appears to come  from the gold tellurides sprinkled  through the quartz in spots. The  Houstin is a claim lying south of the  two upon which signs of the arsenical  iron lead of the Kingston and quartz  lead of the Boston can be traced.  CENTRAl. CAMP.  In this camp the company owns the  City of Armstrong, Eugene, Boundary  Fraction, No. 9 and No. 15, 1-8 interest  in the St. Maurice, 1-3 interest in New  Jack of Spades, 2-3 interest in the Excelsior, aud the water rights of the  camp.  The most valuable of these properties  are the New Jack of Spades and the  Excelsior, which, with the City of  Armstrong, Eugene,  Boundary   Frac-  The tramway agreement by-law was  considered in committee by the council on Monday night and its several  clauses discussed, Several amendments   suggested by the council were  ac.(-*Oti*ci   **��� +Vi_�� nnmnaxnv ��rVii_ w^f^ re*1  presented at the meeting by in. ��_  Shaw. A special meeting of the council will be held on Friday afternoon at  + o'clock and it is expected if no hitch  occurs in the deliberations that the bylaw will receive its third reading on.  Monday next. Ten days later the  ratepayers will have an opportunity ta  say whether they want the tramway or ���  not. Under the terms of the agreement active, bonafide and continuous  construction must be begin within- 30  days of 'the passage of the by-law.,  The company further agree to expend  $5,000 in work on the tramway before,  the $5,000 on deposit is returned to  them.  Nothing further of importance was  considered   by the council.   Beath &  Orok offered to trade trucks for wagon  used under sprinkling cart and the matter was referred to fire and light committee. W.J.Snodgrass.in a letter to the  council7stated he was called to.Oregon. ..  on business, and asked that no action  be  taken in reference to disposal of  dirty water at laundry until his return.'  Dr.   Schon,. medical health officer of  health, and  Sydney M. Johnson,the  city engineer were present in reference  to this matter.   Dr.  Schon stated that  the only method he could suggest for  for abating the nuisance was to purify  the  water  by   a  series of tanksiand'  chemicals.   After  some discussion it  was decided to notify the proprietors'of'  the steam laundry that their premises'  must be placed in a sanitary condition  within   30   days and under the supervision of the medical officer of health'  and city engineer. .    ' *  The Phoenix council submitted the  following resolution and asked for its  endorsation which was given,  y-Whereas,--ho-courts of assize --are���or=  have ever been held in the Boundary  district, although they are held; in all  other sections of the province.  And whereas, the principal' centres  of population in the Boundary district  are 370 miles distant by rail from Kam-'  loops, the most accessible point in- the  county of Yale where assizes are held.  And whereas, the Boundary district*  includes four incorporated cities, one  of them being third in size in the interior, aud a population far surpassing-  that of many other districts where-  assizes are held:  And whereas,-numerous and important criminal cases, involving a large  number of witnesses, having come up  in the Boundary districi, and are  about to be heard at the, coming assizes:  And whereas, it would be a crushing  burden to those interested in these  cases to make them go with their witnesses and lawyers to the court at  Kamloops, 370 miles away, or even to  Nelson  120 miles away:  Therefore, the municipal council of  the corporation of the City of Phoenix  earnestly requests the provincial government to hold a sitting of the assizes  in the Boundary district in May, at  the same time that assizes are held in.  all other parts of the proyince.  j The health department presented  bills of $93 from Kenneth McKenzie  and $51 from T. McNaughton for services as quarantine officers until Monday when quarantine against Phoenix  was raised. The amounts were ordered  paid. On the recommendation of  police commissioners tenders were  called for uniforms for police officers.  (Conclnded On Second Pag-e.)

Ottawa, April 18.���The Crow's Nest  Southern bill passed the railway committee without a dissenting voice and  without amendment today. Hon. Clifford Sifton announced the following  aggreement between the government  and the Coal company, the Crows Nest  'and Southerri'company:  First.���That neither by action of the  Coal company in regard to prices at  which coal or coke shall be sold, nor by'  the action of the railway company respecting cost of transportation, whether  by discriminating rebates or otherwise,  nor by the action of ' both, such companies either acting by themselves  alone or in connection with the  agencies south of the international  boundary line, shall coal or coke, either  or both, be sold for consumption outside of Canada at prices which discriminate unfairly against consumers  in Canada.  Second���If at any time, upon satisfactory evidence being given to the  governor-in-council, he shall be of the  opinion that the spirit of this agreement is being violated, that and in  every such case and when and so often  as such violation occurs the governor-  general-in-council may impose upon  the coal company such restrictions and  conditions respecting sale and supplies  of coal and coke and transportation  thereof to or for the use of consumers  outside of Canada for such length of  time and within such limits as he may  think fit with a view to prevent such  unfair discrimination.  Third.���The order, in council imposing such restrictions and conditions  shall be published in the Canada  Gazette, and if, after such publication,  the coal company sells or supplies coal  or coke ��� to the railway company or  transports coal or coke contrary to the  t-cFSli. ��$ ?V"ch order, the company so  Violating theiefttis Qf SUch order shall  pay; arid hereby c6vei_a_it-! to pay the  governhietit as liquidatof) damages for  such a breach, the Sii-ft of S3 tor each  and every tdh of coal so sold or supplied  or transported, the ainout of such  damages to be recovered by 'action of  the actoin.of the attorney general of  Canada ajw-behalf of the government  in any-cOurt of competent jurisdiction.  Fourth.���The reason for requiring  said companies to enter into this agreement being that at present it is believed  by the government that there is no  effective and satisfactory competition  by other coal and coke producers in  Canada; it is agreed that when by order of the governor-in-council it is  deemed that by the opening of other  coal mines of manufacture of coke by  others,, such effective and satisfactory  competition has arisen, then the agreement shall terminate with respect to  coal or coke, or both, according to the  nature of "suchcompetition.  Sifton accepted the suggestion that  -theJast clause should_be_amended,__pro_-  viding that instead of the agreement  of termination it should only be suspended during the continuance of  effective and satisfactory  competition.  MINING MAN MARRIED.  R. A. Brown of Grand Forks Joins the  ���.������'���*$.-Benedicts.  R, A. Brown, of Sunset and Volcanic  fame, and Mrs. Mader, well known in  this city where both the contracting  parties have resided for years, stole a  march on their friends last Wednesday  and went over to Nelson, Wash., where  they were quietly married in the holy  bonds of matrimony.  The ceremony took place at the residence of Mrs. Huff and was witnessed  by only a few friends, the party returning immediately afterward to  Grand Forks, where they will continue  to reside.  The many friends of the happy  couple unite in wishing them a long  and prosperous journey down life's  walk together.���Grand Forks Gazette.  EHRLICH-FISHER.  Further particulars regarding the  marriage of two of Greenwood's mokt  popular young people is given by the  Spokance Chronicle which says:  At 8 o'clock last evening the wedding  of Miss Julia Fisher and Julius Ehrlich  was solemnized, the ceremony being  performed under a floral Qbower  of pink and white rosese and ferns, the  floral arch being supported by Gothic  arches of the same design. Judge H.  L. Kennan performed the civil marriage and the Hebrew ceremony was  performed by Louis Reubens.  The marriage took place ln the newly  finished reception hall at Davenport's,  where   a wedding  supper was served  after the marriage. The decorations  were in keeping with the Italian renaissance finishing of the hall, the palms,  potted plants and flowers.forming a  pretty contrast to the rich detail in old  ivory in which the woodwork is finished.  Between the gold capped Corinthian  columns were banked palms, with  smaller plants in the foreground, and  flowers. The table was decorated with  candelabra and mirrors and was  banked with pink and white roses.  Potted plants and ferns were arranged  around thesides of the room.  Miss Dorothea Fisher was bridesmaid and Fred Fisher was the best  man. The bride wore white mousse-  line de sole and carried lilies of the  valley. Miss Fisher wore a pink silk  organdie. Mr. and Mrs. Erhlich left  today for a two months' visit to California and other coast states. They  will make their future home at Greenwood. Those present last evening were:  Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Fisher of  Greenwood, B. C, Mr and Mrs. I. Bres-  lauer, of Davenport, Mr. and Mrs.  L,ouis Blue of of Rossland, and Mr.  and Mrs..Blake Wilson of Nelson, Mr.  and Mk. D. Epstein 7Mr. and Mrs. W.  H.

The Rawhide was bought by Maun ��__  Mackenzie and associates for $40,000  and is surrounded by high priced properties���one lead of iron sulphides carry--'  ing from $15 to $20 in gold, has a , 40  foot shaft on it. Another ore body  showing copper has been opened up by  crosscuts further down the hill. . The  C. P. R. Eine runs through the middle  of this claim on its way to the Winnipeg-.  tion and St. Maurice adjoin and surround the Majestic and City of Paris  companies properties���the same people  who own the Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill in Greenwood camp and the same  lead that they have are traced through  our claims. Considerable work has  been done cross-cutting and sinking on  all of them /showing the capping of  large ore bodies carrying gold and  copper and if the gold and copper values increase with depth' as they have  on the Washington and L,one Star and  Lexington, which are on the same contact leads, they will prove to be very  valuable. The. Lexington, which joins  the New Jack of Spades was bought by  the Majestic compaay for $40,COp and  they are working within 300 feet of tne  New Jack of Spades line on very fair  copper ore which is improving with  depth. The Co_np..ny owns the water  rights on the only creek running  through the camp which will be valuable for concentrating purposes-with a  ditch about three-quarters of a mile  long, iron pipes and Pelton wheel in  running order, upon which they intend  in the spring putting in a sawmill.  The Company also intends buying or  bonding the other third in the Excelsior and the two-thirds in the New Jack  of Spades as soon as they have the  funds in the treasury to do so.  DEADWOOD DAMP.  In this camp the Company owns the  Dixie and.half int.erestinjyieMid^ght.  The Dixie lies a,bout one mile South of  the Mother Lode and the Gold Bug No.  2 lies between it and the Morrison: It  has a big body of iron sulphides carrying some copper and small gold values.  Only two assessments have been done  on it yet, but with more development  work it may prove to be a valuable  claim.  :. The Midnight is South-East of the  Buckhorn company's property, about  half a mile���has two quartz leads on it  ���one abc ut four feet and the other  three feet. Although low grade it  might also prove with depth to be a  valuable claim.  LONG LAKE CAMP.  In this camp the Company has the  Golden Eagle and the Electric, half interest in the North Star and half interest in the Lake View.  The.Golden Eagle and the North  Star are on the Gold Drop leads which  runs parallel to the Jewel, Anchor and  Enterprise lead. The North Star is a  very promising claim and carries high  values in gold and silver tellurides but  as the surface has been disturbed and  brokeg.'it.n.eeds depth. About $5,000  has been spent in development work  aid. as soon as the Company has  funds they will start sinking a deep  shaft as it warrants the expenditure of  money. The Lake View is on the West  side of the lake, ft has had about $2,-  000 expended on it and although it is  high grade it is. a segregated vein and  requires plenty of capital to develop it.  The Electric is slso on the West side of  Long Lake, it has a small lead but very  good grade. It has a 90 foot tunnel on  the lead.  GREENWOOD   CAMP.  The Company has in this camp a  nine-sixteenth interest in the Bank of  England and nine-sixteenth interest in  the Bank of England   Fraction.   This  99*********************9  9 9  ! X F. J.

WILL THEY GET THE BONUS ?  . The proposition to build the Greenwood-Phoenix tramway appears to  have gotten down to the question of  'whether Greenwood will go into debt to  the tune of $50,000, to secure the building of the line. That is, the tramway  promoters, who own the electric light  franchise, now ask outright for $50,000,  instead of the guarantee of five per  cent interest on an investment pf $100,-  000, for 20 years, 'which was the  arrangement when they secured the  franchise, and which was part of the  original agreement.   .  Itis not surprising that the taxpayers  are trying to thinkafew times before  consenting to be saddled with this burden, even though the object is a good  one. Kaslo almost unanimously voted  to give the proposed smelter a bonus of  $50,000 in the shape of debentures, but  this is not quite a parallel case, as  KasiQ WOflld reap' almost the entire  benefit of having* a smelter located  there.  ' There can b<_ 39 *?��bt b��t tha*. the,  construcUda Of tha pi-o^dsed" Ifamway  would be of j, the greatest benefit to  Phoenix, in many ways, aflfl it is to be  hoped that the voters of Gi*ee_iwood  will help the project along, and not  baulk at the $50,000 proposltiofi. It  would, of course, be a good t.hing for  the tramway people to have the citizens  of Greenwood put up half the cost of  building the line in advance.������ It saves  the owners of the franchise going into  their pockets just that much. We hope  the road will be built.���Phoenix Pioneer.  ��ft��#e#$ft#��#ft��*����****����tf��#ft  I  9  9  9  *  9'  9'  9  9  9  9  9  9  ��.  9  *'  9  9  9  9  9  9  9-  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9 .  9  9  9  9  9  9  ��..  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  You wiirsa^jffi&^y^  ing, -jreur grpcerie-. $f$m Z13'  We have cut down price*-, id  bed-rock and. ate',prepared to'  meet all competition.

After a season of donbt there is now  a strong   probability that the council  and the Tramway company will agree  upon an agremeent and that the ratepayers will have an opportunity to express an opinion as to the desirability  of  securing   the  tramway  upon   the  terms offered.   There will doubtless be  a   few opponents to the measure.   In  every   community   there   are persons  who object to bonuses under every and  all circumstances   and are so wedded  to this principle that they are ready to  turn   down   every enterprise that carries   a   bonus with it.   Theoretically  the opponents of a bonus are correct,  and  it would  be a good thing if there  were   a   general law  prohibiting,the  same, but in the absence of such a law  and in  the face of the fact that rival  towns   are  always  prepared   to   pay  handsomely    for   having   enterprises  tributary to them, it would be folly for  Greenwood to sacrifice its future in a  futile   effort to maintain a principle.  To quote the language of the street:  "Greenwood  has  no   'dead immortal  cinch' on this district," and in order to  maintain   its   supremacy  its   citizens  "-must-consent-to followprevailing.prac-  tices  and  pay  for the efforts that are  being  made to centralize trade here.  As Grover Cleveland once stated.   "It  is a condition that confronts us not a  theory."   It might be the highest-kind  of patriotism to stand by the principle  of antagonism to bonuses while some  other city gets the smelter but it would  be bad business.  Regarding the agreement itself, it is  a much better bargain than that made  a year ago. The ratepayers then sanctioned a guarantee of S per cent interest on $100,000 for 20 years. It has  been suggested that the tramway  would be a paying concern and consequently the city would not be called  upon to pay this interest but there was  absolutely no protection to the city in  the old agreement. The tramway  might���as other companies have invariably done���water the stock and  qond the road for a high figure���and  the earnings of the road would be absorbed in paying interest oh this  bonded indebtedness. The interest  and sinking fund on $40,000 or 850,000  is less than the interest on $100,000, so  that it can be taken for granted that  the present arrangement is cheaper for  the city than the other.  Besides an effert is being made to  associate the present anterprise with  another which, if carried into effect,  will ensure another large industry for  the city and which will ensure a large  and profitable business for the tramway. The scheme under consideration  is mutually advantageous to the city  and the company. It is the means of  drawing    the    trade  of  surrounding  During the past two weeks the inquisitive census enumerator has been  going from house to house, prying into  people's affairs. Armed with authority  from Dominion parliament, he asked  all manner of questions from the color  of your hair to the amount of your  overdraft in the bank. There was  nothing important in his questioning.  He was simply carrying out his instructions and a non-compliance with  his request landed you in the police  court with the prospects of a heavy  penalty. The practical utility of all  the information desired by the census  enumerators is open to question. A  big increase in population offers food  for political spell-binders who regale  the public with what the party in  power has accomplished; an unfavorable census give the other fellow an  equal opportunity to roast his opponent. The census furnish a wealth of  statistics that are torted and distorted to furnish padding for many an  empty speech. But how much is the  country benefitted by knowing that  there are so many people of English,  Sctottish, Irish or Chinese descent,  that so many belong to the Roman  Catholic church and so many are  Seventh Day Advents or that one man  is the owner of hundreds of acres while  another lives in a rented house? It is  true that the census taking has provoked several guessing schemes, some  of a questionable nature, but will it  put much money in the pockets of the  people who pay the bills?  The restrictions placed by the Do  minion government in the granting of  the Crow'sNest Southern charter, while  they afford ample protection to the  mining industry do not hamper the  company in their operations.  That the Associated Boards of Trade  of Eastern British Columbia have  accomplished something may be seen  by the bills introduced in the legislature by the attorney-general. The  amendments to the municipal act and  thc small debts act recommended by  the Associated Boards are included  therein.

We regret that  the communication cannot be published because, "Another Ratepayer"  neglected to observe one of the rules of  all newspaper offices, that the writer's  name must accompany a communication, not ncesssarily for publication  but as an earnest of bona fides.

The record of Boundary shipments,  given elsewhere in this issue is a remarkable tribute to the mineral wealth  of the Boundary district. Practically  there are ..only two groups of regular  shipping mines, the Knob Hill and  Ironsides and the Mother Lode. There  tonnage exceeds that of Rossland  camp although the latter is several  years older in^development;" The-dis-;  trict also enjoys the distinct advantage  of having the ores smelted at home,  thus giving the district the bulk  of the benefits to be derived from the  operations of our mines. This will be  further enhanced by the early erection  of converters at the Granby and Greenwood smelters.  From a public standpoint the fact  that the ores are low grade is a distinct advantage. The large output  necessary to produce a sufficient revenue to pay* dividends on the money invested demands the employment o  many men, and low grade ore to be  treated economically must be smelted  near the point of production. When  one considers that four years ago,there  was nothing 'but development holes on  the Knob Hill and .Ironsides and that  now they are shipping over 1,2,000 tons  daily to their own smelter and that  other mines give promise of equal development, the prospects of the district  are indeed bright.  t.

Turner aud Brown occupy  seats at the head of the government  and opposition rows respectively, and  each, in a manner, typify the past of  their respective parties. Mr. Turner is  still smart as a boy on his foot, but  not 'one wit more so than the member  for New Westminster. They usually  enter the chamber from opposite ends  and sides, and a comparison of their  sprightliness has often served to while  away the quarter hour of formalities at  the opening of the house, in the press  seats. Mr. Brown is more urbane and  perhaps easier molified " than in the  famous days when he relied on his  "Winchester," but he is none less  handsome. In a beauty shbw.hewould  make close running, even with his  white locks, for many a younger man  A CROWNING GLORY.  Hon. W. C. Wells, the chief commissioner of lands and works, always  creates an impression of being the adjutant of the government forces. A  barrack square definition of an adjutant is "the pack-horse of the battalion," and its aptness will be appreciated by all who know how unsparingly Mr. Wells gives his time and  energies to his * big department.  "Easily the best chief commisioner we  ever had,"' one member expressed it,  and he voiced a popular sentiment.  When he speaks he goes directly to the  heart of his subject, tells exactly what  he will do and precisely what he thinks  and sits down. And this, in the  opinion of those who. sit in the little  gallery above, is his "crowning glory.  If   the energy  of Smith Curtis, the  member   for  Rossland,  could be valu-  ated on an electrical basis his  voltage  would run close to the million  mark.  He   is animation personified.    Where  he finds time to 'study all the measures  which are on '{J-q order paper, collate  his facts is the H.ar\[���_ of the^  ordinar*-;  membsr-v   Hs   can   grind out amend-  *t.6n.s without limit while  you wait,  and   it does  not  matter to  him how  many times he is called to order by the  speaker.     He   keeps   right   on.     The  Rossland   member   is   gifted   with   a  singular bright mind and quick apprehension.    He  is,  beside, perhaps,  the  most omnivorous worker in the house,  as well as one of its best if perhaps its  most loquacious debaters.  The premier is his anthithesis. He  speaks seldom and briefly, and rarely  without the printed page before him.  Mr. Dunsmuir entered politics too late  to ever be a successful speaker. He  knows it and does not try the experiment.  *Hi��  LOCAL CHESTERFIELD   *IH3  'A.   G.'  "Directly -opposite the member for  Rc>sslat.dtfS__-ith Curtis) sits the attor-  ney=g-eneral, Hoa. D. M. Eberts. He  -has long- enjoyed a reputation for in-  -dolence -which has earned him the  ���-sobriquet -"Bberts the Unready," but  tuere is little of it in evidence during  -the session. Measures great and small  are watched by him through all their  stages, from their introduction until  -"Shall the bill pass?" falls from the  lips of the speaker. Others may retire  to lobbies to enjoy a pipe and a chat.  5>ttt there is no such immunity from  labor for the A. G. However he has  liis relaxation.    The A. G. tells a story  Of the other ministers, Hon. R. McBride is the Chesterfield. His boyish  face surmounted'by a wealth of curly  gray hair give* him an air of distinction which wili'be a valuable asset  should he justify the predictions of his  friends, and become a force in politics  of the province. Hon. Mr. Prentice,  the last of the sextette, speaks rarely,  his portfolio requiring less attention  on-the floor of the house than the  others. .-..-������ ���    ���  ��� Mr. Hawthornwaite, the iabor representative and successor to Ralph  Smith, has taken a very modest part  in the debates, but his speeches,  especially that on the' amendment to  the Coal Mines Regulation bill, stamp  him as an able successor to Mr. Smith.  He is a young man, bright and alert,  with a pleasing manner, and gives a  close attention to his duties which  augurs well for his usefulness in subsequent assemblies.  HONEY-TIPPED    BARS.  W. W. B. Mclnnes, his colleague  from Nanaimo, established a reptua-  tion in the fsderal acena which at once  gave him a strong place in the more  circumscribed limits of the provinciai  one. Nature was kind to Mr.McInnes,  for although she cut him off with a  very short frame, she endowed him  with a ringing resonant voice which at  once challenges attention. He launches  his javelins with a laughytoo, which  robs them of their sting, and he meets  a retort with the same enjoyment evidently as he gives one. The worst  thing his opponents can say is that  he is a demagogue and talks to the gal-  leries.but those who do not are a rarity  in the house.  Dennis Murphy, on the government  side, is a youn:-. man of whom great  things   are   expected."   He   is a   verv  clovi-r speaker and his abilities are  leavened with a good sense which prevent him employing-his oratory to the  weariness of the house.  Mir- Pooley, from. Esquimalt. is a  typical Tory squire-. He has fought  his battles, and dreads night sessions.  The first hour after prayers he dedicates, to a comfortable nap, and the  next: hour to a perusal of Harper's.  Once in a while he wakes up and  treat-, the house tp a rattling speech  which reminds tbe old timers of the  day when he was president of the executive.  THB ONtY "-HARRY."  The most unconventional man in the ;  house   is   H.   Dallas   Helmcken.   He i  treats the proceedings as purely infor- i  mal and devoid of   any   great   significance.   It is not many years  ago  that  he punctuated one of his speeches at  a.  night session by* looking   up   quickly  and  informing    the    speaker,    "Ohl  There's a bat!" without changing bis  tone of voice.  When John Houston, of Nelson,  breaks out he is more "-'wild and wolly,"  but not more unconventional.'  To the left of the speaker sits, a little  knot of men, the remnants of tlie old  Provincial party who give an independent subport to the government, and  render excellent service to their constituencies meanwhile. The group  consists of Messrs.. Munro, Kidd, Neill  and Greeii. The first three are alrno'st  clerical in their manner, but the de-  sci iption does not apply to Mr. Green.  None of them worry the house with set  speeches,but when they speak they express .themselves with force, and are  always listened towith great deference.  A JOKE HATCHER  ��� In the back row of the government  Joseph Hunter hatches jokes for consumption during dull hours. He delivers his thrusts to all and sundiy, and  in a quaint way that tickles - his opponent, the Atlin Aberdotxian, James  Stables.  Mr.'Hayward, of JSsquimalt, is always looked to when agricultural topics  are up for, consideration, and to him  the country owes the agriculi ural com--  mittee. The mining interests ai?e left  to Messrs Taylor, Rogers the two  Smiths, Stables and7 Green, Houston,  Fulton and Ellison. The latter adds  to these duties those of governnjgnt  Whip.  The Delta sends a level-headed man  to represen t it in John Oliver, sage,  wit, and sometimes orator.. He generally manages to epitomize arguments  in a clinching way that suggests that  the last word has been said. Messrs.  Garden and Tatlow and Gilmour are  always heard from when Vancouver  interests are at stake, and Messrs. McPhillips and Hall look after Victoria  closely together with the other two  representatives. Messrs. Mounce and  Dickie, who sit at the end of the government row, are also two hard working members who do not manifest their  interest in public affairs by oratory  only.  Mention would not be complete without reference to the Urbaae spealcef,  MfrBoothTwho isTthe friend of every  membe? of the house and of his trusty  assistant iJauiei 0'Hafa, the sergeant-  at-arms, whostf if��wn is a IHOre fearful thing than the* thunderbolt of Jove.

The London shareholders in the Le  Roi are evidencing their dissatisfaction  with Whittaker Wright's management  of the company's affairs. The recent  decision of the directors to. postpone  the declaration of a dividend caused a  sharp decline in the stock; This, however, soon righted itself, but a perfect,  f usilade of protesting letters is still being kept up through the press. , One  of the shareholders in writing to the  Financial Times says:  "1 have this   morning   received the  statement of the directors' of   the   Le  Roi Mining Company Limited, informing the shareholders of their inability  to declare  an   interim   dividend,   and.  further, that they.are unable to liquidate their indebtedness to the   Bank of  Montreal,   This.looked all very fine on  I paper to fresh shareholders induced   to  I buy the shares by the  grand  promises  of substantial dividends, but  to  those  I of us who have listened more than once  I to these unfulfilled promises the latest  {circular is   ominous.   The statements  ���contained in it do not by   a   long  way  ���agree with what was said by the cha ir-  Jman at the meeting on December 28th.  Ir. Wright then said that   they   were  earning profits at the rate of 33 1-3 per  sent, that the quarterly dividend would  De paid, and that they would  continue  ��o pay dividends regularly every  three  louths afterwards.

During his visit he  attended the annual meeting of the  Standard Pyritic Smelting company  and Standard Copper company held at  "Quebec. He resigned the managing  ���directorship of both companies. Harry  13. Price, who has been in the city for  some time, succeeding him. Mr. Laid-  law~was " the_i promoter -of-both-companies. He is anxious to look after his  other mining interests hence his resignation. Mr. Price who is a brother of  the president of both companies, stated  to a Times representative that Mr.  "Wilson, the smelter superintendent,  -would return from Quebec in a few  ���days when a definite announcement regarding the smelter would be made.  He could say, however, that active  *work on the company's mines would be  resumed at an early date.  The following are the ore shipments from Boundary mines to  April 17th inclusive:  1900.

The S-stamp mill at the Waterloo, at  Camp McKinney is not in operation as  has been currently reported by the lo-  1 cal press. Superintendent A. W. Boyd  left camp for Spokane nearly two weeks  ���. since when the mine was closed down.  .Aneffort to raise sufficient funds to  continue development, by means of vol-  ..untary subscription has not been received favorably by shareholders. It  is now up to the directors to decide  upon a new method, to finance the  mine���which from authorative infor-  matioa never looked better than at the  .time of its closing down.  THE WINNIPEG.

The winze, sunk 011 the No. 2  ��� vein at the 300-foot level, was nearing  a* depth of 100 feet, the whole workings  "being in ore.    At  further depth it ia  ��xpectcd  that the No.   1 vein, to the  s6uth,which, from., present appearance,  '. is dipping in the direction of the No.  was decided to levy a further assessment of two cents per share. The assessment is "payable within 20 days  from date of levy. The proceeds are  to g*o towards the construction of a  spur from the Deadwood camp branch  and additional equipment for the mine.  With the amount to be raised, some  $20,000, the directors hope to place the  mine on a permanent shipping basis.  It is believed here, though not corrobo-  iated, that a contract for the treatment  of the ore' has been made with the  smelting department of the British Columbia' Copper company.--=-���==-_=-.^-i__  H. M, Keefer has promoted a second  company to operate and acquire placer  leases on tributary streams of Rock  creek. The name of the undertaking  is the Amalgamated Rock Creek Placer  l_.eases, limited, with a capitalization  of $10,000 divided into 1,000 shares of  1ha par value of $10 per share.
