A   letter   rocoived    from   John  Houston this week days ho has ar-  * rived at Prince Rupert.    Hero are  some of his impressions :  ��������� I have been here since noon on  Dominion Day, and have nothing  to do but eat three meals a day and  sleep between sundown and sunup.  "J am here with a printing outfit,  but T am not allowed by the Grand  Trunk Pacific authority on the  ground to locate, so am awaiting  advices from the company's head  oflice in Montreal.  ", There will be a big city here in  a few years, as the physical conditions are much the same as those  at Vancouver. The harbor is a  good one and is -land-locked. The  entrance is better than at Vancou-r  ver, and from the entrance to the  Pacific ocean is a straight-away  course with no obstructions.  There is no town here yet, .al-'  though there_are two good stores, a  -small drug store, a meat market,  a baker shop, a bank, a-, church, a  customs house, a postofiice, a provincial police ofiico, a sawmill (two  miles distant), and about thirty  buildings, shacks, cabins and  houses. The townsite has not-  been laid out, and no one is allowed to locate" to engage in business without permission from the  Grand Trunk Pacific.  The present population is about  150. There is no hotel or lodging  house, although I understand work  will be commenced next week on  two large buildings, one of which  will be a boarding house with 50  rooms,  and   the other a  THE   CEMETERY  Water  System  to" Be In  stalled at at Once.

Tliero was a largely attended  meeting of the Board of Trade Saturday nJtornooiij-with Presid'enb J.  A. Eussellin the chair.  The minutes of previous meeting were read and adopted.  Secretary Gaunce reported that  the matter for tho folder, decided  on at a previous meeting, had been  compiled and approved by the  committee. He also reported that  the C. P. E. and G. N. railways  would each undertake to distribute  5,000 of the folders. It was ordered that 10,000 copies be printed.  ��������� A special committee composed  of Mayor Bunting, Jas. A. Eus-  sell, W. T. Hunter, G. B. Taylor  and C. H. Fair, were appeinted to  look into matters which at the  present time it is not deemed wise  to make public.  The meeting then adjourned.  Of King George IV, Thomas  Crcevey, who lived iu the early  part of the nineteenth century,  tells this story : The king had appointed the Bishop of Winchester  to administer to him the sacrament on one of the Sundays about  Easter. . The bishop was not punctual to his time, aud when he arrived the king, in a great pussion  at having been kept waiting,  abused and even swore at him in  the most indecent manner, on  which the bishop very cooly said  he must, he be permitted to withdraw, as he perceived his majesty  was not then in a (it state of mind  to receive the sacrament, and  should he ready to attend on some  future day, when he hoped to find  his Jinajesty iu a better state of  preparation.

At the meeting of the city council Monday, evening, there were  present Mayor Bunting and Aldermen Desrosiers, Nelson, Sullivan  and Sutherland. Minutes of previous meeting read aud adopted.  Communications were read from  the city clerks of Grand Forks,  Eossland and Phoenix, stating the  amount charged for transient traders licenses in t^bose cities, the former being $25 and the two latter  $50 each for six months'. As none  of the petitioners, asking for  an increase in the license, appeared before, the council, these  communications were ordered filed  and the license fee to transient  traders stands as heretofore.  The clerk read tho semi-annual  statement of receipts and e.vpendN  tures. This caused some discussion.. Alderman Desrosier wanted  light in reference to extra legal expenses. This was satisfactorily explained to him by the mayor and  city clerk. Alderman Sullivan  wanted information in reference to  school expenditures." It was elicited  that the furnace was to*"> small for  the building. The mayor said that  the furnace was intended to heat  00,000 cubic feet, while the space  occupied was only 45,000 cubic  feet. Alderman Nelson suggested  that the furnace might need cleaning out. The clerk paid it was intended for hard coal.  Alderman Sullivan wanted to  know where they got the overdraft, and the clerk replied '.'at  the bank." Then Alderman Sullivan wished to know if overdrafts  could berjdepended upon to bob up  regularly. The clerk didn't know  but he did know that the present  one would be wiped 'out about the  15th inst.  The mayor pointed out that he  thought,Yale-Columbia Lumber Co.  were charging more for their lumber than tho price agreed upon.  On Jmotion, the treasurer's report was received and filed.  Just as the financial discussion  closed W. G. Gaunce, secretary of  the board of trade, dropped in and  asked permission to speak brietly  on a question which he believed  affected the well being of the district. He said that tho board of  trade was publishing a small folder  containing facts about the resources of kthe district, and suggested  that inestimable benefits would accrue to tho city from this publica-,  tion. He then asked for 830. Alderman Desrosier looked blue, Alderman Sutherland winked at the  reporter, Alderman Nelson looked  as if he was trying to make the  other fellow  believe  his ace   full  *  was a pair of duces, and Alderman  Sullivan smiled as only ho can  smile When donations .are being  asked from the city treasury. After a number of questions wero  asked and answered, the amount  was voted on motian of Aldermen  Desrosieis and Nelson.  Tho question of the plans for  tho city waterworks was discussed.  On suggestion of the mayor it was  decided to hold over until return  of city engineer, who is out on  mineral claim survey..  that intake to dam on Providence  creek had been blocked, but was  now clear.  Fire and light committee reported progress.  Board of health reported a general cleaning up. It was suggested  that the old cesspools in connection  with hotels be inspected.  Alderman Desrosier, cbairmau  of cemetery and pound 'committee,  presented the. following letter in  reference to furnishing water for  the cemetery:  Dkar Sru : Tn compliance with  your lpquest for an estimate covering the cost of installing a hydraulic ram for the purpose of  supplying water to the city cemetery, I beg to submit the following facts -and figures :    -  Tn looking over ground and judging from the eye, it was thought  $200 would cover the, entire cost,  but in going over same ground  with an instrument.it was proved  that elevation was more and head  o7 stream less' than judged by the  eye, consequently cost will exceed  rough estimate, but yon may have  assurance of practibility of scheme  and be assured of 'constant supply  of small amount of water and reserve supply of 200 gallans, except  during winter season.  Estimate as follows : New ram.  No. 4 or 5. Tank to hold 200  gallons, erected on stand and'Gtted  with overflow and supply pipe  500 feet and having four hose  valves at. regular intervals throughout length. Ram to be placed beside creek on city farm and supplied drive pipe to deliver half a  gallon of water per minute to tank.  .Pipe to be black iron-and .properly  gradedto permit draining when desired, and to be laid upon the  ground except where crossing any  road or trail, in which case it will  be buried six to twelve inches.  The above to be installed in  workmanlike ond satisfactory manner for the sum of $327, Should  council wish to have all pipes  buried, contractor will have no objection to them sending out a  laborer, and "no extra charge will  be made for laying pipe in ditch  excavated by said laborer.  For galvanized iron  pipe  add 2  cents per foot, in all 2,000 feet.  Eespectfully submitted,  E. W. Bishop.  On motion of Aldermen Desrosier and Nelson, the estimate was  accepted, work to be commenced  at once, galvanized iron to be used  and a laborer to be furnished by  by city to dig trench. The pipe  will be laid twelve inches beneath  the surface of the ground.  The question of city property  held under tax sale was referred  to city solicitor.

The Diamond-Texas 'shaft "is  down 60 feet. The -rock through  which the shaft is being sunk is a  quartzite and very hard.  Prospecting with the diamond  drill is still being .carried on at-the  Elkhorn. Lately the results have  been very satisfactory.  Development work is steadily  going on at the E. P. U. with excellent prospects of the ore body  being encountered at an early date.  Development will shortly be resumed at the Prince Henry,- the  company having got their affairs  in shape to thoroughly develop the  the property.  The new electric compressor at  the Sunset is working satisfactorily. Thirty 'men are working  at the mine aud this force will  shortly be increased.  Harry Comber paid a visit last  week to the Little Bertha, on the  North Fork, in which he is interested. He says there is a 3-'  foot lead of high-grade galena in  the face of the tunnel.  The machinery for the Crescent  mine in Skylark camp was shipped  from Montreal last week and  should arrive here at the end of  this month. Two men are at present employed by the company doing surface prospect work.  The Fremont shaft is down SO  feet and has been in ore nearly all  the way. The ore ia������as rich as any  taken out in the high-grade belt,  and is similar to that in the Strath-  more, the adjoinining property.*  The Fremont is equipped with a  24-horsepower electric hoist and  employs six men.

Another  drift, which is now in  270  feet, is  being run  north at the 150 level  to open  up  stoping ground  north  of the shaft and prospect the vein.  It had  been  the intention of the  Strathmore   company to   prospect  the property with a diamond drill,  but owing to the  difficulty in procuring a drill  that  will   bore 800  feet into the hill  it has beeu  decided to run'a tunnel'instead. The  portal of this tunnel will be at the  base of the hill and   will  be run  east, about 800 feet to Ftrike the  lead at an approximate perpendicular depth of 450 feet from the apex  of the vein.    This  will give between 300 and 400  feet. of stopin;  ground to the surface and a win*:  can be sunk from the tunnel, making the handling of  the ore  much  less expensive than it  would be by  hoisting   to   the   surface.    In tin  end the tunnel will  be a cheaper  method   of   prospecting   than   by  diamend drill.    The vein  has been  proved  to  the 150-foot level, the  formation is solid, and- there is no  reason  why  the  lead should   not  continue to  the' 450,   or for  that  mater the 1,00 or  5000-foot levels.  The mine is  equipped  with a 10-  horsepower     electric     hoist   aud  blower.    The shipments of ore  so  far have amounted  to about S20,-  000, aud the average value is S130  in gold and silver to the ton.    Development has been  kept steadily  ahead  of shipments.    In, fact, in  the past six  mouths  only  ore encountered in development has been  hoisted, and no attempt has beeu  made to force shipments.    In  the  next eighteen  months the Strath-  i more  may be expected to take the  lead among the shippers of Greenwood's high-grade  mines both  iu  quantity and value of the ore pro-  produced.  THE GREYHOUND.  This week Dr. Spankie and W.  G. Gaunce collected samples from  the mines in the vicinity of Greenwood and shipped them to the  Winnipeg fair. The collection in  eluded specimens from the Mother  Lode, Emma, Oro Denoro, Sally,  Strathmore, Fremont, Providence,  Elkhorn, Prince Henry, Bay, Tip  Top, Monte Carlo and   King Solo-  At the Gkevhoe.vd mine work was  resumed about July 1st, after a shutdown lasting- something over three  months.  A force of six or seven men is. employed in crosscutting the ore body  from the 200 foot level. The ledg-e,  which was struck just before work was  suspended in April, at a point about  100 feet to the west of the shaft, has  been crosscut for a distance of between  ten aud twelve feet into the hanging,  and uo sigus of the foot wall have yet  been discovered.

Options have  have been taken on a number of  claims in the,vicinity of the Snow-  shoe mine, and also in Wellington  camp. The smelter rumors are  also numerous, if vague.

The present crosscut strikes the  ore at a vertical depth of over ISO feet  below the tunnel, thus blocking out a  considerable tonnage.  Although a great deal of exploratory  work was done from the 100 and 200  fool levels of this property in the early-  days, the new crosscut to the west is  the.only place at which any ore has  vet heen struck at depth. All previjif  tunnels were to the east of the shaft,  in absolutely barren rock.  Development is being carried on  in the Strathmore by Superintendent Shaffer with eight men. The  shaft is down 150 feet. From this  level a drift is being run south to  open up stoping ground.

The item  j first appeared'in The Ledge,and \v;is  simply  a   statement   of   evidence  brought out  in thc case of Rex vs.  Sinclair.    Tn his evidence Sinclair  swore that "a  few  days  previous  to  the  election  Smith  Curtis had  got the  price  of the  two ranches  from  him," presumably  with  the  object of disposing of them for Sinclair,    After  the election  nothing  was heard from  Mr.   Curtis.    Thc  inference is obvious.  . Tin* Midway Star doubts the  legality of the. meeting of the licensing board owing to the fact  that one of the commissioners  placed tho word '''sober" after his  name in a hotel register. If this  is a violation of the act, then the  act should be amended. There is  no reason why a license commissioner, if he so desires, should not  refrain from the use of. intoxicants,  although many intelligent people  in the West will doubt his sanity,  taking into consideration the excellent opportunities his position  affords bo acquire.all sorts of jags  at reasonable rates.

The only  tion of  appeal from the ac-  t-hs> license commissioners  was dismissed by His Honor Judge-j  Brown last week. It is evident  that his honor does not hold the  opinion of the Midway Star that  the meeting of the licensing board  was illegal, but Judge Brown may  not have given that careful study  to the License Act which Editor  Lawton. evidently has,  Thk board of trade is once more  active and doing good work. For  years- it has been the most passive  thing that ever drifted along without an interment. Saturday's  meeting was a surprise to everyone, not only on account of the  number present but the desire to  get a "wiggle" [on. A live board  of trade can do a vast amount of  work beneficial to a city, and the  Greenwood board of trade appears  to be very much alive at present.  Thk wage scale in Hedley camp  has been made to conform with  that of the Boundary. A few  minutes talk between the manager! ^u  and the men settled the (|iiestion.  F. A. Ross, manager of the Vale  Mining company and Daly Reduction company, says in enclosing a  marked copy of the Hedley Gazette : " Kindly notice at length  and so aid us in getting good men."  The article from the Gazette and  scale of wages appears in another  column.    With this issue The Ledge commences on its fourteenth year of  usefulness or otherwise. It has  the distinction of being the oldest  paper in the mining section of  British Columbia, and also of having found a brief resting place in  more towns than any other paper  in the West. It has paid wages  right along to the printer, whether  it did to tho publisher or not; it  has managed to meet its obliga-  to tho type founders and paper  houses; It has at time-* been under the ban of the church,  and  residents in the vicinity of Rock  Creek for a number of years, is not  the ''right" man. It was announced in the columns of Mr.  Ross' paper a couple of weeks ago  that the postofiice would be moved  to Hanson's store. This means  that, in the event of an election,  Mr. Pittendrigh would not be  satisfactory to the machine-. A  petition has been circulated and  signed by about ninety per cent of  those interested, asking that no  change be made, but it is probable  the postmaster-general will ignore  the request of petitioners.  saplDQN  Will be appreciated by the Tourists,  Travelers and Mining Men visiting the  Slocan.

Cartler, Prop,  Boundary Scaie of Wages Amipahly  Agreed Upon.- .  Following appeared ��������� in the last  issue of the Hedley Gazette :  ' While other mining camps in B.  C. have from time to time witnessed conflict between the miners  and mine owners, Camp Hedley  has been particularly fortunate in  tho maintenance of cordial relations. One reason for.this has  been that the-average wage scale  over the province has been observed in this carnp, and in some  cases where the jmanagemant wished to recognize individual merit  the scale has been exceeded.  The unprecedented scarcity of  labor in all lines which led to increase in the wage scale in Butte,  and afterwards ' in -the Coouv  d'Alenes and in Boundary camps  made in clear to Mr. F. A. Ross,  general manager of the Yale Mining company and Daly Reduction  company, that' if he wanted to get  his share'' of the available labor  supply he would have to meet the  increased scale that was being paid  elsewhere, and had included it in  his programme ��������� but he found out  on his return from New York that  a request ��������� for the Boundary scale  had already been filed with G. P.  Jones, miue superintendent, by  miners.  At a meeting which -was arranged up at the' mine, between  Mr. Ross and the men," the situation was discussed frankly. The  manager appreciated the consideration of the men in forbearing  to make arbitrary demand or to  quit work until his return, and  while the Nickel Plate, which is a  gold Jproperty,_ derived., np_beneflt  from the high price" of copper;  which had led the Boundary mines  to agree to a higher scale of wages,  he was not so unreasonable as to  expect men to work for hi in at  S3.50 per day when they could get  S-i.00 in the Boundary. For'this  reason   he   agreed   to   meet   the  Fresh and 'Salt Meats, Fish and  Fowl always in stock.  | Okanagan Apples at $2.00 per |  Box.  &&G������&������mQ&&Qi9iSe99999������Q������99890e9Q9&99t9QQ9&0 &99&999QQQ  PHOENIX, B. 0.  the entire house, and  service of those in  The 'dining room is  Is opposite the Great Northern depot,   aud is  a   delightful haven for tho weary traveler..

The  sample rooms are the largest in the mountains and  a plcasuro to drummers with big trunks.  JAS. MARSHALL, Prop, -  Boundary scale to take effect on  July 1st, but would not subscribe  to any wage list until it was duly  vouched for and known to be correct. As yet he had seen only  newspaper copies of the Boundary  schedule which might be correct or  might not.  , Following the same line of  reasoning as regards hours of labor  at the lower works, the manager  at once conceded eight hours to  the mill hands and nine hours for  general labor.  Both the compauy and the men  are   to   be. congratulated ou this  .amicable arrangement, and tobusi-  | ness men in Hedley it should also  ! be   particularly gratifying,   for if  there is anything  under the sun  j that will put a community at outs  j it is a labor strike, in which every -  ! body loses whether they may think  I they win  or not.    Hedley is ex-  ; ceedingly    fortunate    in    coming  through  this crisis   without loss,  for not a man had quit work for an  hour over it, and wo are sure the  whole community will  ho disposed  to give the company due credit for  the spirit of fairness which they  have shown, as well as the manager's good judgment in recognizing  tho situation and  dealing with it  on strictly business - lines,  instead  of displaying any spirit of pique as  bo many others would   have done  under similar circumstances.    As  it was   the   company   had   much  greater cause to ��������� feel agrieved than  mine owners of the Boundary district had, for tho Boundary owners  were operating   copper properties  with copper more  than twico tho  prico than  it was  when  they  installed   their   plants  Jand   began  operations, whereas the owners of  the Nickel Plato were deriving ho  benefit from tho high prico of copper, but the rovorso, as tho prico of  somo of their supplies had beeu  product never varies. , It is therefore in view , of this fact that the  town and the employees should appreciate the course which the manager has. taken and commend tho  the good sense and,sound business  that it has evinced.  The following ,is the scale of  wages, known as the Boundary  scale, which went' into effect here  on July 1 and which will no doubt  attract to this camp,- immediately,  the best men in tlie province, inasmuch as in several instances employees are realizing pay above the  scale, because of special individual  merit: .  .   ,������������������ MINH  SCAMS.
