To  the Times Mr. Raithel stated that  whfle here he will arrange for the  purchase of a hoisting plant and air  compressor. '     -. '  NORTH FORK.  Superintendent E. W. Liljegran of  the Humming Bird (B.C.) Gold Mines,  limited, returned to the mine last  Saturday from a trip to Spokane. He  reports that the incline winze sunk  from the tunnel level is down 35 feet  with a full face of ore. Shipments are  to be resumed to the Granby smelter.  '   - SUMMIT CAMP. ;  John Dorsey, manager and promoter  of the Lake Shore & British Columbia  Mining company, limited, left ijhis  week for,' Chicago and.. Milwaukee' on  company business. To the Times: he  stated that the shaft on the Blue Bell,  is to be sunk an additional 100 feet.  The north drift at the 100-foot level  had been driven 51 feet, practically all  in ore. In* this distance a 12-foot  winze had been sunk. In the south  drift the ore was followed for 35 feet.  On the adjoining property the J.S.,  also under bond to his company, and  on which a payment of $4,000 has  recently been made, development  would be started on his return. His  mission east is to lay before the shareholders a proposition* to purchase a  diamond drill outfit, to exploit the J.S.  and also the Mountain View claim in  which he has a large interest. He also  hopes to arrange for the installation  of a seven drill compressor plant on  the Blue Bell.  Men are now at work unwatering  the Maple Leaf, one of a group of  claims owned by the Rathmullen company of Rossland. The property; is  equipped with a 10x14 straight line  Rand air compressor, boilers, hoist,  etc. Development on an extensive  scale is to be prosecuted vigorously.  T; W. Gillett, of Fairhaven, Wash:,  president of the Everett and Spokane  Mining company, owning the Rambler  in Summit camp is here on a visit to  the mine.  The crosscut on the second level of  the R. Bell is in over 100 feat from the  shaft and Manager Jack Hanly  believes, that the ore body will be  sitruck within the next 50 feet:  WHITE     CAMP.

This spring the mine was  equipped with a 100 horse power boiler,  12 x 16 air compressor, with a capacity  of five drills; a Ledgerwood hoist with  32 inch drum and 8 1-4 x 10 cylinders  and other accessories. The mine is  developed to a depth of 139 feet by a  double compartment shaft. Since  work was resumed last december, the  shaft has been completely re-timbered  down to the 65 foot level where drifting is in progress.  WELLINGTON CAMP.  Richard Plewman of Rossland,-managing director of the Winnipeg Mines,  Limited,^ .was.here Monday onhis: way-  out. from a visit to the mine. He  reports a most satisfactory state of  affairs t.oth as to development and the  financial condition of the company.  At the mine the principal work is being  carried on at a depth of 400 feet on' the  second north vein. This vein was  was followed down from the '300-foot  level by a winze sunk to a depth of 100  feet. Of this distance they were iri ore  for 73 feet. Now a drift from the  bottom of the winze is being run east  and is in 35 feet all in ore. " Monday a  trial shipment of two car-loads of ore,  taken Irom these workings was sent  out to the Gratiby Smelter. If this  shipment proves satisfactory it is quite  probable that the ihine will 'continue  sending out ore from time to time.  - Speaking:of assessments Mr.. Plewman said the shareholders had been  prompt in making- payments. Under  the terms of the re-incorporation'it will  be remembered that the companj' pro  posed to assess shareholders up to five  cents per share, before endeavoring to  sell* an}- more treasury stock, of which  there' is'-' 255,000-%e'tn'aijiing iri the  treasury.' The assessments are levied  monthly, amounting to half a cent a  share. So fat* six assessment's, including the one this month have been  levied. Out of the first five assess  ments,.which1, if ipaid ; iu full wonld  return $25,000. over $22,000 has been  paid, and when all the assessments for  this and thebalarice of last month are  turnsd into the company $8,000.will be  on hand. Last months expense at the  mine amounted to $4,800, the highest  amount spent in any one month for  development. It is anticipated however before the balan.ee of two .cents  per share is assessed the property will  be nearly on  a self sustaining basis,  J____A_i?._M&yigf___^  -ibleshov. irig-iii "the mine. If additional machinery and equiptnient is required when the assessment of five  cents per share is exhausted the company will doubtless be able to dispose  of its remaining treasury shares at a  .satisfactory figure. By that time  nearly $50,000 will have been expended  in the development of the Winnipeg-,  by the new company, and those on the  outside, who are iu a position to judge  are apparently satisfied it will then  have passed from the prospecting  stage to that of a shipper.  Nicholas J. Tregear, who his been  superintendent since June 15th 1900  has resigned and Simon Jacobs has  been promoted to his position. Mr;  Tregear wiil take his family to Montana, and will probably operate in that  State.  niCAUWOOD   CAM!'  John Hunner, T. J. Graham. E. K.  Erwin nnd Fred Oliver, of Spokane,  directors of tht: Morrison Mines Limited, have been hire for the passed two  days examining- the mine, preparatory  to presenting a full.report to tiie shareholders. Accompanying party is Roy  Clarke M. E. of Rossland.  Wednesday directors were to have  met local shareholders at informal  gethering at the Hotel Armstrong for  the purposes of discussing affairs relating to the company and the recent  two cent assessment. None of the  local shareholders turned up at the  appointed time and the. meeting was  called off. Afterwards President John  Hunner gave out the following statement to tlie Times:  ���'Tlie meeting was calied by the  directors so that whti.e on the ground  we cuuld in form .iiiy discuss with ciis-  satisfied'stockholders any complaints  regarding the assessment or management of the mine. It looks to me as  though local shareholders have no  reasonable complaint, else they would  have met us here and talked matters  over in a friendly manner. Our secretary is now at work on the financial  statement. In this connection the  directors are prepared to allow any.  competent accountant local   sharehol  ders like to chose a full examination of  the books.' We wiil pay all his expense  Spokane and a reasonable fee for his  services. Roy Clarke has been engaged  to make a full report on the mine, the  amount of development, the machinery  needed and to prepare plans for future  work. His report will be embodied  with the statement shortly to be issued  to the shareholders. j  " Regardingthe two cents assessment >. the directors thought it was  absolutely necessary. No money had  been received for several months. The  company was in debt about S5.000 and  we needed additional machinery, such  as boilers etc., to carry on the work.  Our examination of the mine has convinced us that the work done under the  management of Fred .Oliver'..was as  cheap or cheaper than in any other  property in the Boundary district; If  this is; a fact: shareholders certainly  cannot find any fault with him.  ' "Complaint has heerirmade that the  head office of; the( company should be  changed from Spokane to Greenwood.  This will not.be jdone. The majority  of the shareholders are Spokane men  and the_o_fice will remain in that   city.  "Greenwood being ��he registered  office "in this province we are bound by  law to keep copies of all necessary  books here for the inspection- of the  shareholders. ; This will be carried out  so soon as the books are brought up* to  date. 7  ���'I have no information regarding  the contract entered into by my company and the Standard Pyritic Smelting company. I have only been Iin  office a few daj's and inever saw this  contract." '      "      .  "The reason that the smelter company is not liable for damages as has  been hinted by certain shareholders"  said Fred Oliver is because of. a clause  making the contract 'null and void  unless a railway spur..was. built to the  mineWithin 90 days from its date aiid  the same contained no clause compelling the smelter to build it.       " >  The directors returned to Spokaneon  yesterday's .train. . j  Work on the properties or the Montreal-Boston Copper Company, owning  the Crown Silver and Sunset in this  camp is for the" time, being confined; to  the surface.- The contract for. sinkipg.  the main double compartment shaft On  the-Sunset to the 400-foot level has been  completed. For the past week the men  have been employed ih opening Up the  ore, on the surface at three places. -Jn  each the,showing is good and the values  are reported to .be quite satisfactory.  The largest quarry is on the showing  east of the Crown Silver shaft, (bn  the Sunset surface work is progressing  both .east and north on^the shaft wherl.  the ore is being.stripped. It is expected  that the ore taken out will shortly be  shipped to the smelter.-It speaks  volumes for Deadwood camp, -and the  whole Boundaty,. district., that profit  paying ore can be so quarried, from the  surface,  SUMMTf"    ClMP'..   '   ' .!  ; Ross Thompson of Rossland,'one ;of  the heavy owners ih the King: Mining  Company operating the Oro Denero in  Summit camp is in the city., Asked  when development would be resumed  'he"saidhewas-'unable'to-state-"as~-the  company was without funds. He admitted that several propositions had  been made for the purchase of the  mine but none .had been accepted,  ueither.was the property tied up under  bond. Last winter W: H. * Thomals,  consulting- - engineer for the British  Columbia Copper Company; made an  examination, and had offered a certain  figure for the property, but his tf*rms  were refused. Only recently F F.  Parrish, manager of the B.C. mine in  the same camp, had reported on the  property for Montreal people; and next  week Mr. Thompson said, a further examination would be made for other  parties.  Jay P. Graves last week made the  second payment of S1.500 on the bond  on the Champion claim in Summit  camp owned by A1c.nl Omon, Joe Brown  Grand Forks and Fred Munn of Greenwood. The Champion adjoins the R.  Bell and has a good showing.  wkst romc.  i  W. T.

Something frightened the team  aud it bolted upsetting the ve'.iical aud  throwing    the    two    men    out,    Both  \ sustained contusions and  bruises,  but  : happily no   bones   were   broken.    Dr.  ; Spankie went up to attend   the injured  i men.  "There may be room for a few more  people but none for further .enthusiasm" said Mayor Jakes in his opening"  remarks at the complimentary smoker  tendered to Lieut. J. Edwards Leckie,  D. S. O., in. \he Auditorium on. _v��o��i-  daj- night. It is said that there is al-  wa3*s room for one rnore and equally true  is it that a little, more in "enthusiasm  can be crowded iu. Before midnight  the big crowd who started (the evening  in a most enthusiastic aud patriotic  frame of mind worked up to such a  pitch that the rafters rang with shouts  of welcome to the Greenwood hero who  brought fame to the little city whence  he went to fight the Empire's battles:  The committee in charge of the entertainment had the theatre appropriately  decorated with firgs and buntings. In  a cosmopolitan city like Greenwood,  their patriotism was uot selfish and  the Stars .and Stripes were strung  along side the Union Jack. Pictures  of Lords Roberts and Kitchener were  hung on the stage and some enthusiastic .Irishman dra.ped the former .with  'the''flag of the Emerald Land. The  box set aside for the guest of.the evening was also suitably decorated., ;, In  front the letters'D..S.-.0. paid eloquent  tribute to the valor of the. hero and  the pride which those present felt, in  one of their fellow citizens..  The reception was not confined, to ���  Greenwood, TPhoenix sent a strong-  delegation and Midway, Eholt and  other surrounding districts were well  represented. Among, the visitor*  noticed in the big ci owd were Dr..  Gordon, C. D. Hunter, J. F. Hemen-  way, A. G. Simpson,. P. C. McArthur  and Mr-King of Phoenix.  H. C. Shaw made an excellent chairman;, He wasted no time in preliminaries but attacked , the, official program rne..Jby-=requesting_.Mayor,- Jakes-  to make the opening address. Just; as  the mayor was about to begin, .Liqut.  Leckie appeared and was greeted with  cheer after cheer as he was escorted to  his seat.. Mayor Jakes was brief in his  opening remarks as he stated that., he  would have another opportunity of addressing them in the evening and  would therefore content, himself with  expressing his great pleasure at being  there to welcome Lieut. Leckie back;  from the front. Messrs. Whiteside,  Hodge, Smith and Harris sang  Annie Laurie, their voices blending  sweetly. They were enthusastically  encored as were all other numbers on  the programme. W. W. Howe gave  one of his popular songs, Mr. Mclntyre  of the Mother Lode gave a selection  on the mandolin. J. F. Hemenway  was heard during the evening, in two  or three of his popular song-s. Neville  Leese brought down the house in his  comic songs more comically rendered.  Mr. Warren gave a selection on the  mandolin. Mr. Galloway was heard  in a song, Mr. Mclntyre a clog dance  and Del. .Mars, the fire king, gave an  exhibition of how to eat molten lead  and other equally warm articles. C  W. H. Samson and others contributed  to the evening's entertainment. A  hard working* committee . kept the  audidence well supplied with beer and  tobacco. In the middle of the programme Lieut. Leckie accompanied by  the citizens committee appeared on the  stage. Mayor Jakes in presenting  him with a handsome gold watcn and  chain said in part :  Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen : It  is very gratifying- to see such a large  aud enthusiastic gathering here tonight, but, when the purpose for  which we have1 assembled is remembered, one feels that there could have  been no room for doubt as  to  the suc-  (Couclnded On Page Two.y , .  71  .' !:  R'-tf  m  i M  * t  ��� ��� i  ;��� i 1  'i i  111  ��� ? -R  ;������$  im Page  THE) GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.

Shortly after eight o'clock Jones went  to bed. Rowand went out to get a  bottle of whiskey���as the supply on  hand had all bt.-.--i consumed. He  returned to the cabin, and without any  provocation, assni-.od tiie "prisoner.  During the struggle which ensued,  while Rowaud held him down over the  bed and was attempting to strangle  him, he stabbed h';i. twice, inflicting a  mortal wound. Des Rivieres cross-examination by W. A MacDonald, K. C.  lasted for over ly-o hours, but the  crown's attorney ���>as.utiable to shake  his evidence.

The 20-round go  between Charles Goff aud James Burns  proved a fiasco. The men stayed tp  ^theHmit,_but,fighting_ytaa_munk"^wn_  quantity. The bout can best be  described as slow. Archie McNaugh-  ton of Vancouver refereed the contest  and Dan Thomas of Rossland was  time-keeper. The referee declared it a.  draw, and there went up a ��� howl from  Groff'a supporters that threatened to  briny down the roof of the opera house  and for a few minutes the stage was a  perfect bedlum.  At the end of the 20 rounds both men  Were fresh. Goff did most of the  sparring, tapping Burns at will, but  the blows bad no weight behind them.  The affair was a diet-appointment, and  it will be many a. day before Nelson's  ���porting fraternity can hope to pull off  another contest. Rossland Bent over a  large delegation on a' special, and both  Greenwood and Sandon contributed a  number of lovers of tbe manly art.

Now that the  house has adjourned and the smoke of  railway battle has cleared away, the  public generally will be sure to see  still more clearly the importance of  this connecting link. It is not only a  development railway but in the absence  of a direct Coast-Kootenay railway  which under the most favorable, circumstances could not be completed  wi .hin three years it is necessary to  secure speedier com uiunication between  the coast and the interior. The cities  of the coast are more directly interested than the interior. Rossland  Greenwood and other ci.ties in Kootenay  and Southern Yale have direct communication with tho east. The circu-  lous route v ia Revelstoke to the coast  involves several transfer:, that makes  the carrying of goods expensive an.',  inconvenient. A connecting link  between the C ii W. ami ihe -Shuswap  &Ok;inagaii would give cvinruuriii...  tion that con. : not be iinpruvei. upon  only by a l<_w huiii'a t>y tne muii. diiei.t  route.

During'.the  heated  discussions  on  the advisability of allowing American  railways an entrance into this country,  florae   very  bitter things   have  been  '.'jittered and written regarding United  .States and American enterprise.    The  ''truth is that English capital no longer  .considers  British Columbia a favor-  Viable field for investment and the War  ���^SJagle and other flotations have soured  'eastern   Canadian capitalists.     Under  The circumstances, if the   natural  re-  ~ sources of this country is to be rapidly  developed,   we  must  look  more   and  more  to  the  South ;for  the  needed  capital.   In the exploitation of the re-  resources of New Ontario,  American  capital was largely drawn upon.    It  was in United States that most of the  Dominion Iron and Steel   company's  issue of $15,000,000 was underwritten  last year.   It   is   in   New   York   and  Philadelphia that a million  dollars %i��  being obtained for new steel works at  Collingwood,   Ont.

MATTER BECOMING URGENT  .Covernments at Washington and Ottawa Have Decided Upon Methods  of Procedure.  The exact location of the 49th par-  .allel is giving the Canadian and United  States governments some anxiety-the'se  odavs.   Theyjare also interested in other  -.portions of the international boundary.  In this district there are good  grounds  for dispute over the location  of   the  boundary   line.    Near   Midway  there'  are two lines.     The  engineers  whose  duty it was to locate the 49th parallel  and   see ' that    suitable    monuments  imariced the same succeeded in running  two lines about half a mile a part for a  .considerable distance.   Which is which  jis  difficult  to   determine.   In   fact a  short time ago some sporty  gentlemen  were-seriously considering the narrow  .strip of land as a most suitable place  for pulling off one of the big fistic encounter* that have   been   stopped by  governors.of states and agentsjof law.  As there was no suggestion of a boundary   commission   at   that    time,    the  officers of either  country would have  been greatly in doubt as to whether  they had the right to   interfere   not  __nowing.iu..which.country,theland was  situated.  'Namerous other  difficulties  have arisen between the Atlantic and  the Pacific and the contemplated survey is urgent.  It is upwards of half a century ago  since the friontier landmarks were  placed. In the interim large centers of  population have grown up, both sides  ���of the line, vast industries have been  developed and fleets of steamers  brought into existence, on coasts,  lakes aud rivers, forever creating new  international interests.  In British Columbia, the impetus  given to mining interests by the charters for railways connecting with  American roads, and increasing investments of American capital, in all  directions, render an early delimitation  of the frontier imperative, in connection with trading and industrial enterprises. Discoveries of mineral deposits are constantly being made  along the frontier, at places not accurately defined on the/existing boundary maps, and respecting which there  is endless controversary and uncertainty.  Going East, there are boundary disputes in the new mining regions in the  southern corner of Manitoba and West-  ern~Ontafio, an d.in "the lakesectioT-V  As the new mineral districts are developing rapidly in population, in commercial value and in railroads connecting with the systems both sides of  the line, the necessity of an early settlement of these boundary disputes will  be readily recognized.  It has been found repeatedly in  recent frontier difficulties that the  boundary marks haye been-* wholly  obliterated, over long distances, and  not infrequently in remote parts where  mineral discoveries, or industrial  growth or the establishment of new  railways or steamship lines, or trading  concerns, are continually reportel.  Tbe disappearance of boun lary marks  is particularly noticeable in the forests  areas, and the demand for pulp limits  on the American side of the line makes  it advisable they should be restored  without delay. In some cas���, though  not often, errors have been found in  the sites of the old monument*, placing  American territory erroneously in  Canada, and vice versa.  The delimitation may consequently  be a somewhat slow, tedious and ex-  pensive affair. It may possibly take  several seasons to complete. The  Usual practice is for the Americans  and Canadian parties to work independently and not very far apart, with  consultation and agreement as the  line is run from point to point, as to  the exact positions of the new monuments and the most conspicuous places  in which to have them erected.  As Washington and Ottawa have  only just reached the understanding on  which the survey parties are to be sent  out, details have not yet been finally  arranged, but the parties both sides of  the line will, it is to be supqosed,  naturally take geologists with tbem to  investigate the mineral conditions by  the light of discoveries since previous  surveys. "Valuable as the work done  by Canada's geological survey parties  since confederation undoubtedly is,''  still it has been impossible to cover  the entire surface of the mineral lands  of the dominion. There are probably  no more gold fields like the Yukon  awaiting development, but the Michi-  picoten deposits which suddenly turned  out to be so rich and the Sudbury  nickel discoveries, which, after all  were quite recent, are thought to be  but indications of the existence of  equally abundant hidden wealth which  accident at any moment may reveal in  many other directions.  Only a comparatively trifling area of  the mineralized districts of Canada  have ever been prospected. Every day  brings reports of new finds. The coming delimitation will certainly add  very materially to the available information respecting the extent and  location along the Southern border of  Canada of her undevelooed mineral  wealth. 7 -���.������'.  It has never yet been satisfactorily  settled, for in stance,, where the Indians  coming fouth down the Gatineau in  their annual-spring migrations used to  bring their gold and silver. It was a  common thing for these people to trade  fine gold and pure silver with the palefaces for the commodities of civilization.' Many thousands of dollars-  worth of the precious metals, have  from fir st to last thus found their way  into strong boxes of the old time traders of Bytewn and Montreal, and  formed the basis for many a fortune.  None ever succeeded in inducing ''che  redskins to reveal the secret of the  source from which they derived their  precious little bags of treasure. It is  supposed they found the gold and  silver in the stretch of two hundred  miles or so of wild country that lies between the headwatets of the Ottawa  and the Gatineau rivers. In fact  - many ..traces of rich . deposits of - -gold  and Silver have been lighted upon f rom  time to time by lumbermen and miners  in that country, but the region has  never yet been carefully prospected.;  Whilst Canada is putting forth fresh  strength .to compete with the Pacific  states for the far Eastern trade, her  y-overnment has this week reached an  important decision affecting competition for the Western taaffic to the seaboard. Montreal is the key to tlic  situation. Without adequate transfer  arrangements there, everything else  fails, has failed. Mr. Tarte, minister  of public works, has at last carried the  majority of the cabinet with him in  his demand for heavy expenditures,  for the port of Montreal and the St.  Lawrence to transfer the former in  reality as it is in name into the principal ocean port in Canada though a  thousand miles up from the sea-  NOTICE OF.DISSOLUTION.

They   report  that popular opinion is in  favor of the,  ���construction of this important piece of  -road  anil  that the subsidy of $4,000 a  mile mentioned  in the loan  bill was  .A'Oted for this railway  without opposition.   They are hopeful of being- able  to make the necessary arrangements to  ���build   the   railway   at  an.  early date.  Regarding- the political situation   at  tlie Coast, they stated that  nothing' is  known beyond the  newspaper reports.  Hon. Mr. Turner is going  to   London,  but   they   do   not   think   that  iu the  <cabiuet  reconstruction  lo    follow  his  -retirement, Martin Mclnnes or Brown  "trill be taken  in.

'Boston  mining  companies  tfor    $56,260,000.     Sworn    statements  /were filed "ivith the court giving figures  to prove the value of the said companies.  The answer of Henry H. Rogers,  ������ice-president of the Amalgamated  Coppercpmpany, and, since"the death  of Marcus Daly, the acting president,  ��� admitted that the purchase of the Bos-  *ton and Montana company at $375 per  share would involve an expenditure of  ��� $56,260,000; ,but denied that such expenditure would be excessive.  " The answer further sets fourth that  the market value of the Boston & Montana stock is greater than $375; that  ���the stock is now selling  at $450 per  share, and that it is largely  dealt, in,  ���particularly^ in~Boston._^In^l890 __the  -company paid dividends amounting to  -$6,150,000 and   in   1900   dividends  of  - $6,450,000.   On   February   20,   1901, a  ���quarterly dividend  of  $1,500,000 was  paid.   The   answer    says    that    the  physical property and assets  of   the  ���company, leaving out   the  good will  and intangible assets,  are worth   at  ..'least $50,250,000.   . ���  The   Butte and Montana company,  -which was the successor of   the Butte  ���and   Boston   Mining    company,    the  owner says,  was organized when the  . Butte and Boston company  went  into  the hands of a receiver in 1897.    The  properties of the latter company,  now  owned by the Butte and Montana company,  were bought" for $1,000,000, but  have enormously   increased   in  value  and are now worth S115 oi\ a par value  ���ofSlOO.    In January, 1901,   the  Ingest  price was $110 and the lowest ��95.  '_. he answer announces that $18,500,-  1 000 is an excessive price for the properties of the company. Similar affidavit was presented by William Rockefeller, vice-president of tlie. Amalgamated Copper company. It says that  the company is an investing company,  and that 575,000,000 worth of stock was  issued for acquiring copper properties when- it seems clearly for, the  benefit to the entire body of shareholders to do so. The Amalgamated  Copper Company already owns 10,000  shares of the Boston and Montana  company, which it acquired in 1900.  Similar affidavits -vere presented  from Frederick B. Addicks, assistant  treasurer of the Butte and Boston;  Godfrey Hymes, general manager of  the Boston and Montana company;  Clarence King geologist and mining  ��� engineer, and Robert Winsor, of Kidder, Peabody and company of Boston.
