SUPPLEMENT TO THE ADVANCE.
Midway, B. 0., March 29,1807.
LOCATION VERSUS  RECORD.
When will pi'iispecl.irs nnd miners
cease committing bullish actions, and
settle down lo the study of the Mineral
act in siiinii of lia hearing.., inure particularly upon the quest inn of which
constitutes a piinr right to a mineral
claim, priority of location or priority
of record ?
The aliuve query is made as a rouse
quence of another,instance which happened during the pasl week, when iwo
or three different purlies rushed to the
record office after locating a mine nil
claim to tile a record, thereby demon.
stinting their utter ignorance, ur Iheir
want i.f ability tu clearly interpret the
clause in the Minerel acl hearing upun
the subject,
For the edification of Ihnse who ure
not In a position to acquire the knowledge through other sources, Ihe following reference is made to the
subject i
Taking the consolidated statutes nf
1888, it is found that in ,1831 priority of
record governed the title to a mineral
claim, This stood in force until 1891,
when it was repealed and priority of
locution governed. In the following
year (1892) another change was made,
however, and once more priority of
record governed, This only was allowed to stand for one year, as in the
act of 1893 it is found a return was
made lu priority of location, aud up to
the present lime this holds good.
It will therefoie he seen that as 15
days is allowed hy Ihe Mineral acl,
within which a record may he made
after a mineral cluim is taken up, nnd
as priority of location governs Ihe title,
providing all the other requirement
of the Mineral act are complied wilh,
therefore not the slightest advantage
accrues to any one who exercises un
due haste in the matter of recording a
claim. Let (his fact been understood
hy prospectors and more attention will
he paid to the staking of claims, and
the wild i ides to the.record office will
he events of the past.

VOLCANIC CENTER.
Mr, Mc.Connell, of the Dominion
Geological survey, suggests that the
arrangement of the rock furuintions
leads him tu believe Ihnt anciently
there was n vulcanic centes near the
site of the present lown of Rosslnnd,
from which lava and ashes deluged the
surrounding district. At Russland
there is a large, well-defined area uf
granite, irreguliiiilly shnped, ahout
four miles long and one mile wide, ex-
- tending frum Deer Park ninunlain
westward tn the western base of Lookout'mountain. Beyond this muss there
is a siiriiiunding area uf porphyriles,
which are supposed to huve lieen forced
to the sin face from the snme molten
subterranean mass. It Is nlong the
line' of junction of these two bodies of
rock Ihul ncnrly all the great hndies nf
ure nre located. Commencing at the
north-west curlier uf the area lhe line
i nils through the Ciiff, War Eagle and
Le lini claims; Ihen, turning tu Ihe
west, circles riuind a spur fruiu the
main area, which covers part i.f Deer
Park mountain, and continues eastward In a sinuous line, passing ahuul a
quarter of a uiih-norlh of the Crown
Point mine to the foot, of Ihe west
slope of Lookout mounliiiii. Tlle
northern edge runs fi-oni the Cliff mine
eastward to Monle Grist*, mountain,
then bends lo the south and skirling
the southern base (if Kootenny Columbia mountain continues in a smith-easterly direction toward Lookout mountain. The other three concent rlc areas
do not carry the typical Trail Oreek
ores, but are traversed by occasional
quartz veins that appear to belong to
a later date, As to the character of
the veins Mr, McConnell says Isolated
examples may he tiled in support of
the I henry uf vein fiirmiithin. The
blunt irregular mil lines uf siime nf the
ore hiMlleaand their fissure like regulnr-
lly in others, the presence in most cases
ofa single wall, which Is often meaningless as a confining wall, and the
occasional lack of any wall, the gradual blending of lhe ore with the country
rock, nre all characters consistent with
I he deposition of Ihe ore from ascending watets, which have eaten away
portions nf Ihe cimntry rock and replaced It by the minerals held In sulu-
tInn. The miners uf the district generally favor Ihe fissure theory under the
impression thnl they are thennly veins
that, ui-e apt lo he nf cont.lnunus'ilcpth,
although Mr. McConnell does not agree
with this theory.

The properties, which are juWirleiy
owned T*jr tbe Company, consist of
eight claims lying, in a group and
■mined as follows: "Tlie Fred, D.,"
"8, H. B„" "Big Ledge," "D. A,"
-0. R," "81 Ti," "0. A. R.".md **.T.
A. C.'hemgfully shorn, anil explniinid
in the Miip Plan annexed,
DESCRIPTION,
On ihe "D. A," is a rein ab-xtt 2f>
inches wide, with 11 pay-slirnk ot 4 to
12 indies; from this ■*,£■■! )>»• of ore
was shipp.il to Hk* smeller, giving
f*lt«.15guM per lim-, silver 74 7-lOois.,
*ml 3 |kt cent, lend. A tunnel i» l-ring
driven on IW» vein fnnn which ore ii
lieing laken. On the same proprrty is
» larger vein (quart*) carrying guleii*
and pyrites.
Tlie " G. A. B." has a 3fJ-fool shift
Mink on n 2-foot vein, hcayily mineral-
uol willi an intimate mixture of Iron
did copper pyrites, guleim, blende and
silvpiglancc. Tlii'linest pierennf wirr-iil-

lioin lllis shaft. Aveiuge assays from
different plnces across tlie rein gate.
•J*).f**> gold, 50 ow. silver; also $8.00
gold nnd ISO ozs, silver and one, the
laii*st rrtntn—$16.06 gold and 11K6 •.-.*»
oxs. silver per tun.
On lhe "Big Ledge" is a IOfmi-1
quart', Tcin, mineralized wild Iron
pyrites. This yciii has lieen opened
tip by cross-nil son Ibe surface for 600
feet.    A narrower   vein   has   been
N, B.-SCALE O.N THIS MAP 1500 FEET TO THE INCH,
opened up, heing one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into tbe main ledge as n spur, on
which a tonne) uf 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gnld
and 1110 ozs, silver, and $40.35 guld,
17J ozs. Bilver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "O. R" bus two distinct veins;
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
anil general chnriicter would seem to
he the same vein as that on tbe Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
heen done to make Ibis conclusive.
The second vein has al. present n
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown rallies in gold from $4.(10
to $170.6.3, while a conservative sampling by Mr. 8. 8. Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in gold.
On the "S. H, B." are two converging veins of copper nnd iron pyrites,
on which work is uow twing done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
lOf ozs., copper 11.08 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
Tho "Fred D."was located in December, 1805, more ns ground for a
basis fur mining operations for the
other claims than for Its present value,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein on llle 0, B, runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
Ihis claim,
The "8. F." lies letwced the G. A, R.
and D, A., in the direction of tbe strike
on the G. A, ii vein, This location has
been made on a vein of pyrrhotile.
The ".I. A. (!," has a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth uf a few feet,
1 he ore carries a considerable percentage of of copper and $10 in gold.
