GREENWOOD. B..C. THURSDAY, JULY 4, 1901.  No.  ,jV  n  INTERVIEW   WITH  JOHN   MIEKLEJOHN ON MINES IN B. C.  LAWS  Chan-.es  Suggested ��� Believes  That  Prospects are not Being Held Too  High���Mining Notes-  John Mieklejohn who is interested  in the Similkameen and who has had a  long- and varied mining-experience in  South  Africa,  Australia,  Yukon  and  .elsewhere, has given the following- interview to a press representative. After  stating that he visited the principal  cities of England, Scotland and eastern  Canada last winter he said : "I found  an apathetic indifference among- mining people in the cities I visited towards investing in British Columbia.  A number of people complained they  had lost money already in worthless  British Columbia mining veutures and  were too cynical and prejudiced to  think favorably of anything that came  from this province; a,great many were  ignorant of the mineral resources, and  others, especially in eastern Canadian  cities, stated that when the people of  British Colunibia showed their confid-  '- ence in their own country by investing  in their mineral claims, contenting  themselves with profits from legitimate mining enterprises rather than  from the staking and the sale of  claims, then they might expect to get  more eastern capital.  "The value contained in the ore and  the size of, the ore bodies in this province compare favorably with that  found in the other colonies, and I consider there is indeed a great future for  mining here*    f.  am   of   the   opinion  ' however, that the indusl.rj' would have  a much better chance of progressing  under encpur-ig*enient from the government instead of being hampered  from  , its birth, as it is at present, by excessive taxation, Some of the Australian  laws could easily be adonted to ad vant-  age. .I agree with Mr. Herschel-Cohen  ,. when he states that mineral claims are  too lightly held and advocates a ihore  stringent labor condition attached to  all holdings. If a greater amount of  labor had to be expended, men would  be more careful of the real value of the  ground they staked, and it woul.i have  the effect of forcing- development and  \showing up a great amount of natural  -^wealth^that'iiow^^  conditions���hidden and unknown and,  in numerous instances, shepherded by  restaking from year to year. If continuous labor was enforced, as it is in  Australia, exemption only being  granted iu cases that justly merited it,  we would not find the ���* 'wildcatter'  among: us who goes out and stakes for  position  and  then  calmly' spends his  time around hotel offices  hawking his  location for sale."  "Don't you think a regulation of this  description would be a hardship on the  prospector?"  "Not by any means," Mr. Meikle-  john firmly answered; "the genuine  prospector has every- wish to devt-lop  his ground; it is the 'wildcatter' who  would consider it a hardship, as a  regulation on this basis would be his  funeral knell. The Australian prospectors are surely against the man  who attempts to shepherd his ground  without working it, and they would  bitterly oppose a change in the regulations which "would give one person a  monopoly of nearly 52 acres of possibly  valuable ground under the paltry labor  condition of $100 per annum expended  on work, or the other choice of abandonment and restaking the claim with-  out'any work being done. He would  also figure that the demand for labor  would be considerably decreased under  this regulation. -Every claim which is  being developed and shows up well is a  further running- advertisement of the  resources of the province and the community here cannot afford to allow the  natural wealth to lie undeveloped and  unknown."  "How do the prices for good claims  here correspond with what is paid, in  the colonies you have been in?" was  next asked. :  "No comparison can be drawn at all,  because the investor has it all his own  way under the system of bonding that  is extant here and the prices are away  below anything I have ever seen. Possession is general.}-given in this province on long terms for a purchaser to  find out the value of a property before  completing his purchase.. Only in a  few instances have I known this kind  of deal to be entered into by the claim-  holder in Australia or South Africa. In  those countries possession or title is  ver.v seldom g-iven until the purchase is  complete, but even then the terms are  not generally over such a long period  as is the common case here. An investor can get no fairer or more reasonable deal as far as prices and terms are  concerned in any part of the British  colonies than what caii be procured in  the , mining districts of this province,  and I have no hesitation in saying in  contradiction to what Mr. Sword is  stated to have said in a late interview  published in the Rossland Miner, that  the system of bonding as practiced here  together with the small prices generally involved would be sufficient inducement for me to invest locally ,in  preference to any other part I have  been in, if I were so financially situated." he concluded.  -A meeting of the "Western Copper  company, limited, was held in Massam  & Laidlaw's office on Thursday last.

"JAKE"  AND  HIS FAMILY  Of City Boys Had a Big- Time���Picnics  at Midway���The Grand Forks Celebration���The Fire Boys Win-  [444444444444444444 f 4-4444^*  The twenty-fourth anniversary of  the confederation of the provinces into  a Dominion of "Canada was quietly  observed in Greenwood save by the  small boys and "Jake" Barrett. Jake  is always loyal to Greenwood and if he  could hot keep the big boys' at home on  Dominion Day, he at least succeeded in  giving the little . fellows a jolly timr.j  Jake marshelled his army of youngsters about nine o'clock in the morning  and until nearly midnight the beat of  drums, the boom of bombs and the  sputtering of rockets told that Jake's  juvenile army was abroad. The boys  all voted "Jakey" a prince of good  fellows and mildly suggested that they  were cosmopolites and were quite prepared to celebrate the Fourth of July  or any national holiday of any  country under the sun.       '  Tne early train to. Grand Forks was  well crowded with pleasure seekers.  Phoenix was practically deserted on  Mondaj", nearly all of its inhabitants  having gone to "the Kettle River city.  Greenwood would have made but a poor  showing had the census enumerator  turned up as the majority of those who  didn't take in the Grand Forks celebration picnicked at Midway. AU of  the latter reported an enjoyable oiiting.  The Grand Forks celebration was a  great- success from point pf numbers.  The Kootenay trains and the Boundary  all contributing a large number of  visitors. The visitors found themselves at the Hot too tender mercy of  an ami}- of grafters whb fleeced them  at every available opportunity and this  to a large extent detracted from what  would otherwise have been a very  pleasant excursion.  The Grand Forks Dominion --Day  celebration drew the largest crowd  ever seen in the Boundary. Midway,  Phoenix, Eholt and Greenwood contributed liberally, and when the early  Monday morning's special, in to sections, pulled into Grand -forks depot,  fully 700 people entered the Gateway  City"frony~acTos��Tfrehiountains. It is  estimated that 1,500 visitors from all  points took��in the sports.  *" The hose team from the Greenwood  Fire Department covered itself with  glory in winning from Rossland the  hub-and-hub race, notwithstanding  that it was- heavily handicapped by  reason of being forced to carry hose.  The firem.n's races, held down town,  was a feature of the two-days celebration. Rossland sent over a large  crowd of backers, who offered liberal  odds that their firemen would take  everything in sight. Fate however  decreed otherwise for the local boys  won handily in the hub-and-hub. In  the wet test the Rosslaud teams were  witiners, with Grand Forks a good  second, hi the foot races Smith of  Rossland carried off the honors.  The horse races at the new West-  mount park half mile track drew large  and enthusiastic crowds both afternoons. The prizes were liberal and  thanks to a good management there  was no attempt at jockeying���it was  dead straight racing iu wliich the best  horse won.  The lacrosse match Monday morn-  .ing- between Phoenix and Grand Forks,,  resulted in a poor exhibition, in which  the Grand Forks boys made 12 straight  goals to nothing. Phoenix however  showded them how to play football  winning by one to nothing in a well  contested game. -Monday's programme  was concluded at the opera house by  a middleweight boxing contest between  Charlie Goff of Spokane and Bob  Hodge of Idaho. Goff was too speedy  for his opponent, putting him out in  the second round. The prelirhiuery  I bout of eight rounds between Kid Lee  and Dick Lewis (colored) lasted the  limit, and while popular opinion gave  the fight to the colored gent the referee  decided in favor of Kid Lee.  Most of the Greenwood delegation  stayed the two days returning home on  Tuesday evening's regular. As the C.  P. R. failed to provide for the proper  handling of such a big crowd, over  half were forced to journey to the  Forks in box-cars. Coming home the  local fire boj's and some of their  "rooters" captured a box car and held  a "sing-song," being met on the arrival of the train by Fire Chief McKenzie and escorted to the fire hall  where they were felicitated oyer their  victory.  ��#-;H^.^*#-?*^-s<ff!.*f!!^#7!H;H;'Ttf��'i('*^��;.*  9 9  *  *  *  *  *  *  9  *  *  *  I*'  *'  *  9  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  A public meeting will be held  In the city hall Friday evenin?,  LABOR DAY *  GELEBRATION. |  *     *  *  *  *  9  *  *  July 5th, for the purpose of *  *  *  *  ��  *  A  large  attend- *  w 9  % ance is urgently reauested-  9  iS  *      .  ���ft  9  organizing a citizens' committee to arrange a Labor Day  Celebration.  *  9  9  9  *  9  *  9  9*99*99**********999******  R.

Where Smelter will ibe Built-  Mr.  are  James J. Hill is essentially a railway  man. He builds railwa3rs to secure  business, consequently he sometimes  does thing's' that astonish men who  think thej- know it all. ��� Last, week' the  Spokesman-Review published a map  showing- the route of the Marcus-Republic railway and Spokane men are  wondering- why Mr. Hill comes north  into British territory and south ag-ain  in order to reach Spokane. The reason  is plain. Mr. Hill does this because he  is a railway man and is after business.  He builds his railway where he will  get the greatest possible business.  In the district traversed by  Hill's proposed railway there  mines that will just pay and other  mines and propositions to lean to  tempt operators or investors. In order  .to secure the greatest development of  the natural resources of the district,  a development necessary to a profitable business on the part of the railway, the railways itself runs, be so  constructed so as admit of economic assembling of the vaiious ores at some  central point where thej- can be treated at the lowest possible, cost. The  natural centre for this is Boundary  creek and Mr. Hill builds his railway  accordingly.  The route as outlined by the Spokes-  man-Review map shows that the whol<_  mineral district is to be tapped in the  shortest possible distance to a natural  centre. After leaving- the Kettle River  valley and following Fourth of July  creek, northward towards Summit  camp, Wellington, Phoenix and Sum-,  mit,camps are tapped. By continuing-  the road down Boundary creek through.  Greenwood and towards Midway, a  down hill haul is secured for the ores  of the camps mentioned and those of  Long Lake, Providence, Skj-lark,.  Deadwood, Copper, Smith's and Central as well. All the camps of Boundary are tapped in the shortest possible  distance. Then the road continues by  a natural route from Midway to Re-  piiblic.^'Btit'tl-i-ris" "no Fail"." If is the  intention to continue the road west to  Mj-ers creek, Canjp--McKinney',-West'  Fork and Okanagan.  It. will be asked why Mr. Hill does  not build his road direct from Marcus  to Republic and run spurs into the  Boundary camps. The reason is plain.  The whole road is built to secure the  easiest and cheapest communication  from all the camps to one natural  point for the assembling- of the ores.  That point is Boundary creek.  The railway man is after business  and must go to the smelting point.  The smelter man cannot come to him  because ho must chose tlie. best point  for assembling the various ores and  .luxes required to make the mixtures  he desires and thr-re is no point more  advantageous than Boundary ciec-k. *  The dry ores necessary to'make workable and profitable mixtures can be  conveniently hauled from Republic  nnd other points across the line to  Boundary creek to meet there the ores  of Boundary. The ores of West Fork,  and Camp McKinney can also be more  conveniently hauled to Boundary than  to any other smelting point. As hns  already been pointed out by the Times, .  there are points acro-s the line equally  ns good as those on this side, but the  smelters will not be built there. Build  smelters immediately across the line to '  treat Canadian ore and immediately an  export duty is imposed by the Dominion government. The Amet ican  government might feel like retaliating-  against American ores coming- to  Canadian smelters, but they are without the power since the constitution  forbids an export duty on the natural  products of the country.  The principal shareholders in the  Dominion Copper company are associated with Mr. Hill in the railway  undertaking*. Their smelter expert  Mr. Breen will build his smelter at  Greenwood and the railway will be  built so that the ores from all points  may be cheaply hauled to the smelter.

Enquiry at the Sunset elicited the information that R. A. Brown  is shortly  ��� expected at the camp.  ' The owners of the  Rifle  are doing  assessment-  work. * and-..  the    present  ��� showing' is most encouraging. ..This is  ,also true of the' I'. X.7L-, a nearby-  claim, where the work of opening the  ore body is now progressing.  Charles Powell has cause to be contented these days.. The recent work on  the Princess May, as stated in last  week's Star, was fruitful in exposing  some excepti.nally rich ore. An assay of samples that he brought to  town gave 11 per cent in copper.  J. Bernard Tierney, M. E., of Nelson  has obtained a*n' optiofi't'rain' 'Fred  Wampole, of Princeton,': for the purchase of the Buller and a three-quarters  interest-in the Little J.Gem Fraction,'  both on Copper Mountain.''; The'Buller  has a fine Surface showing "of gold-  copper ore. Mr. Tierney sampled both  claims, the pre being .sent- t'6 Nelson  for testing purposes. If the option is  lal.eu' tip development work will be  started this stimnier.  A resumption of workrori:'the Htim-  boit claim, adjoining the Oriole to the  west, is announced, when theoo-foot  shaft will'donbtless be iteepe-iect. Since  the Sn.owc.e_i boys start.ed.\vork on the  shaft it. has been put (3 own\ to:. a; depth  of 20 feet. * At the bottom a noticeable  change in the character of ore is to be  seen that is highly encouraging, as  galena���something entirely^ newou the  mqiuitain���is coming-'-iu'.in spots, and  is associated with the sttlphrets and  bornite.        "'" "'*���'���"���''" '"'"  Many camps have .been- es'-ablished  in this vicinity, and .work . is in full  swing on several of the claims. At  the Oriole, D. M.

Had that order gone to the Miner, that  paper would have-had S+1.35 more than  the Times and there would have been  no kiclc coming" from the Times.  The Miner insinuates that because the  manager of the Times and Aid. Ross  are one and the same the Times cannot  legally do city work. The Times is an  incorporated company and the clause of  the municipal clauses act relating- to  matters of this kind follows:  "But no peson shall be held to be disqualified from being elected a member  of the council of any nuinicipil corporation b3r reason of his being a shareholder in any incorporated company-  having dealings or contracts with the  council of such municipal corporation."  The whole matter is small aud  scarcely worth serious discussion but  it is rather hard on members of the  present council who are conscientiously  endeavouring to rescue the city from  the legal entanglements and financial  difficulties into which it was plunged  through Thos Hardy's stupid blundering, that his Greenwood organ should  resurrect him and -parade him as a  model of wisdom   and  integrity.  MINING  REPORT.  successful working mines  in   the province todav.  GRAND FORKS-REPUBLIC RAILWAY.  THURSDAY   JULY 4, 1901.  MUNICIPAL   . COUNCILS,     PRE-  ""-"��� SENT AND PAST. , ' 7  The,Greenwood Miner has seen fit  to bring one Tho. Hard}- from the city  of Phoenix for the purpose of telling  the present city cou'ncillin.general and  Aid. RosSs in particular how the affairs  of a city' should be conducted. The  Miner is unfortunate in its references  to Mr. Hard3''s actions, in connection  with the sale of goods to the city. A  reference to the accounts for 1899 and  1900, particularly 1899, will show that  Mr. Hardy sold several thousand dollar's worth of goods to^the city through  Chas. E. Edwards,  Robt Hunter  and  i  other civic employees, that Mr.  Hardy  drew $500 from thecity treasury for a  ten days' jaunt to Victoria and  accomplished nothing, while the  mayor and two others made a.  similar trip for'a less amount of money  and accomplished something in the interests of the citv, that���but why continue with a long list of .Mr. Hardy's  actions. He retired to., that obscurity  to which he properly belonged aud it is  to be regretted that he did not take his  -jiewspaperplau^  swearing .away ."his responsibility),  srice its only mission apparently is to  damn! ever" action and discourage  every project that is in the interest of  t'~"_city of Greenwood.  The Miner makes the distribution of  the city printing a" excuse for bringing up the ughr. spectre of the past  municipal mal-administration.  Until the present council went .into  power the city work was done in the  Greenwood Times, first because, tbe  Times was the only newspaper in the  city; then because it tendered for the  work lower than a newspaper helped by  Thos Hardy et al, for the purpose, of  jruining an established business and  th because Thos Kardy was a part-  ��� in the Miner while he was mayor  Ind therefore could not legally take-  any work and he could not induce his  '..manager, James Grier to put in bills  under the circumstances.  Fortunately for Greenwood, T.-.os.  Hardy retired from the civic chair and  thc city and the. Miner was free to  accept city work. Since the Miner  acknowledges that the majority of the  Ross ticket were elected and could  therefore control the council, the Miner  neither legally or by usual practice  could expect city work but at the suggestion of Aid Ross, the work was divided equally between the two printing  offices in the city. Until June 24th the  amounts paid for work done in the  Miner office during the term of the  present council was as follows. S43.60,  ��39.60, S4, $3.20, S3, S13,. total 5106,40  also S15 for printing Board of Trade  reports but that need not be c-nsidered  here. There was paid for work done in  tbe Times office during the present  council S41.85, S29.20, S7.S0, S3.50 total  $92.05.Under the circumstances the city  clerk naturally placed the next order  Avith the Times. This amounted to 527  which was paid on Monday June   24th.  k*- :'���:���  The annual report of the minister of  mines has just been issued. It contains  a vast amount of information concerning the mining industry. Typographically it reflects the highest credit on  the government printing office. The  illustrations are excellent and appropriate. Among the latter is a fine view  of Greenwood. The volume contains  a lengthy r-.port of the Kettle River  Mining Division furnished by Gold  Commissioner McMynn in which he  reviews the work done in the district  during the year.  Mr. Robertson the provincial miner-  ologists has something to say regarding prospects and prospectors which  now that the subject is being discussed  will prove interesting. He says :  "While production must be the ultimate measure of our success as a min-  i ig commnnity, yet but a small portion  of the energy of the country is employed in a class of mining which is at  the present time productive. Every  accessible section of the province is  being 'prospected' more or less  thoroughly, and many sections: are  being developed with good promises of  success, while still others which are  known to contain- valuable mineral  must necessarily lie dormant until the  growth of the country proves sufficiently good transportation facilities to  enable them to be opened up.  Prospects are "promises," and the  degree of faith placed in their fulfilment will be measured by the manner  iu which our mines���the prospects of a  few years'ago���are now fulfilling the  promises then given.  The statistics show what these mines  have, during the past year (1900), paid  back in principal and interest to the  lenders of the money for their development.  J___Th__L-to_tQ-.L'ii.m^  in 1893,56,529,420; in 1S99, ��6.751,604;  and in 1900 reached the sum of 310,069,-  757; an increase of 49 per cent, over  1899, and 54 per cent, over 1898.  Prospects may be said to borrow  money on promissory notes and, unfortunately, many, "promising-prospects"  have failed to meet their obligations,  with the result that the capitalist can  only he induced to advance money by  the expectation of a high premium aud  a largo rate of .interest on the loan.  In consideration, of such high premium and rate of interest, the lender  must necessarily expect to make losses  in individual cases, but if, in a scries  of transactions, the principal and a fair  rate of interest is returned, then this  form of investment must be considered  a profitable one, and that it is so profitable is found by those who investigate  the matter.  These "notes" of the prospects have,  however, to pass through the hands of  promoters who, too often, uot content  with a regular commission, raise the  "notes," or add ou such a premium  that but a small percentage of the  original loan is available for the development of the prospect.  A prospect which gets, say 510,000,  might pa.v back such loan doubled or  trebled; but why should it be saddled  with a debt of 31,000.000 and expected  to pay this back with interest ? Is it  any wonder that a prospect like this  becomes a failure ?  "Why should mining investments not  be entered into as would any commercial business���only after serious investigation ?  If the investing public���the real  lenders of money to the prospects���  would exercise ordinary business  caution and see to it that the money  for the stock they buy is used as it  should be���on work and not to fatten  the   promoters���there would be more  Notwithstanding the encouraging  dispatches that have been sent from  Grand Forks telling of the immediate  construction of the Grand Forks-Republic railway, it now looks as if the  road would not be built. These dispatches intimated that Geo. S. Deeks  had been awarded the contract and  that active construction wouid be commenced immediately. Then it was  announced that Mr. Deeks had gone  east to arrange the financial part of  the contract and that work would be  started upon his return. Mr. Deeks  has returned and he says :  "There is positively nothing to say  concerning the proposed road. The  reports that work was to be begun at  once are without foundation. I not  only do not know when the road will  be built, but I am not in position to  say whether it will ever be built. In  short, the building of the road is not  .vet in my hands." When asked as fo  the Great Northern's plan he said :  "Yes, I had a conversation with Chief  Engineer Stevens while in St. Paul,  but it was on matters of a personal  nature. You can say, however, that  its road will be built. Contractor  Seims will, I understand, sublet the  construction work, and our firm may  be among the bidders."  It now looks as if the Great Northern would be the only railway in the  field and that it will make connections  with Republic from Midway and not  from Grand Forks.  The Times is in receipt of an invitation to the Spokane Industral Fair  which opens on ' September 1st.

There is no beating- of drums nor  blowing of horns to accompany the  Hon. J. K. Turner on his mission lo  Ottawa. "He." has': hot'even "gone to Ottawa but to Toronto/Even Mr. L/Ugrin  cannot be" induced to follow him:up.  The question suggests' itself: If  Dunsmuir plus Eberts plils - L.iigriri  could accomplish nothing' in- Ottawa,  what can. Turner, minus _-.ugri.i- ac-,  complish ? This is one of those.': in-it-'  ating conundrums which has' no answer. But after all the business which  Mr. Turner has gone east to accomplish  is not one usually accompanied by the  blowing of trumpets and the beating  of drums. Unconditional surrender is  usually a matter of reversed arms,  lugubrious appearance and sulky looks.  It is easy to imagine Mr. Turner's interview with the Sunny One at Ottawa.  It is almost possible to hear them  tilk. '      '    _  "My dear Mr. Turner, you must admit that in this matter the Government  of British Columbia hits placed itself  in a position which is constitutionally  untenable."  "I assure you we have been actuated  by ho desire to antagonize the Dominion government."  "_STo, quite so, I fully undestand  that. But it is difficult to understand  how the legal adviser of your Government, a Mr. Eberts, I believe, did not  more fully protect you from the very  obvious difficulties in which you have  been involved."  ���'Well, you know, of course, what I  say is confidential, but Mr. Joseph  Martin has a good deal of influence  with the Premier and. ���*���,*.*   *"  "Ah! I am quite sure that that  gentleman's, love tor the present  government of British Columbia is almost as strong as his- affection for me,  Mr. Turner. I have no doubt he has  endeavored! to place your government  iu a ridiculous position and me in an  awkward position, but he has not  succeeded in both his endeavors (and  here is where the sunny smile comes  in) not in both, of his endeavors', Mr  Turner," and so forth and so on.  The fact is that Mr. Turner has gon ���'  to Ottawa-without a shot in his locker  and the Dominion government knows  it, and Mr. Turner knows that it knows  it. In its relations with the province  of British 'Columbia' the Dominion  government ' kn'o'w.-s that to adopt a  position of antagonism to the Dunsmuir government will rather increase  its popularity than otherwise. The  interests of the province are likely to  suffer, just as- if they, had not suffered  enough locally.���Victoria Post.  NOTICE.  STEAM -BOILER    INSPECTORS'    EXAMINATION.

S..K : I am instructed to advise you  that tlie application made by yourse'f  and the other members of the Greer-  ���wood delegation who recently interviewed .the Honourable the Minister  of Kduc.vtion lor permission to sell the  school property at Greenwood has been  al-owec1.

I  beg   '        ' '  ,   Madam Ursa is  no- ordinary  violin-  ise.    A brief sketch of her early life: in  view of her coming to Greenwood, may  be of interest.    Born of   poor  parents,  her early childhood was passed   in   the  old   town   of   Kantes,   on  the   Loire,  France.    The child's father was a. flute  player, and her mother a singer of some  j note: thus   she   inherited   a   love   for  I m tsic.   In those days it was con side red  tt shocking thing for a girl   to   play   a.  violin, but at the age of five   the child  had evinced such a passion for the  instrument that her father consented to  allow her to be taught.   At   that   age  Felix Simon took her in  charge.   Her  advance was   most   remarkable.    She  soon proved her   genius.    At   ten   an  effort was made to get her into thecon-  servatory of mu.sic   at   Paris,    Auber,  the composer, was at the time  director  of lhe institution and he refused to consider   the   application.    iSIo   girl   had  been admitted nor ever would be besides  she-was too young.    But   her   genius  could not be   long   ignored.    She   was  finally-admitted and.the_niasters__were  ready to lend every  assistance   to   the  child.    Ih a few years the first  concert  tour was   made  through   France   and  Switzerland.  Year after year the talented -artist  has extended her scope until, it may be  said, she has lifted the soul of every  music loving nation on earth high up  into the realms of purity and love by  her genius and bow. She speaks  through her instrument from a heart  overflowing with kindness, and iu a  language that all may understand.  mi s  COMPANY, LIMITED..  i  '�����  TRANSFER OF LICENSE-  Notice is hereby- giv.em that thinty  days after datewe intend'to apply, to-  Bpaxdiof License:Gonimis-iioners.i)iithe-  city of Greenwood for a transfer! to-  W..H- Craig of. the.license now held'.by1  us for the Alberta Hotel,.
