Bruce mul seven olher claims, situated
on Ingram mountain,close in .Midwny,
but owing tu 11 misunderstanding Ibe
terms nf 1 he bund were mil strlcl ly adhered to in the outset, nud the bund
fell through, inuoh-to lhe rcgrul uf all
put-lies concerned. Tin- Bruce and two
other claims reverting to the original
owners, Mr, J. 0, Hans and Ills associates, tiiey set lo work nn tin- adjoining
claim to lhe Bruce, the Jubilee, and
soon sufficient work ivns dune to
demonstrate that nol only was lliis
good property, hul thai the Bruce was
really a much better proportion ihnn
many had believed, as apart from the
rich coppei-gold ore lo he found on tin*
sin face, it was seen thai twu ledges
instead of one, existed on the claim,
which running parallel with each
other, disclosed siu-b a lurge surface
showing thai Ihe impression was conveyed to tin* unobservant lhat it was
an enormous blow-oul of ore, lucking
undefined limits. Tlie true merit of the
property being peii-i-ived. ninny, were
the overtures mnde to llie owners, by
parties desirous of oblalning working
or other blinds, Inn ns in the meantime Mr. Huns lind disposed ul' 1111
interest in the principal claim the

owners themselves having decided to

work was sinned a few days ago on ,-•

EDITORIAL NOTES,
As in the near future a t rganiz-
at ion of lhe mail service for this dis
trict will be neeessni-y, lhe Postal
authorises will do well to consider lhe
advisability of making provision for a
connecting service hetween ilu* two
lines nf communication over the different routei from Pentlclon to Oro, and
Penticlnn lu Grand Forks, so that
Fairview uiny In* brought inlo closer
touch wiih the Boundary Creek seel ion
of the disirici, At present all mails
coming froui Fairview to Boundary
Creek, are carried around by way of
Penticton, whereas could lbe two lines
be connected by iishort service extending over only three nr fuur miles, a
direcl, communication wuuld be eslalilisbed helween ihes* growing centers uf mining acl i * ity, n si al e uf affairs
which we willingly intimate tu the
deparlineiil, would he greatly appreciated by those who so much desire a
rapid interchange uf correspondence.
Recently we made mention of the
necessity that existed for Ihe removal
of IheGuverniueiit.ollii-est'ruin Osovoos
to Fuirview. Recognizing the fact Hint
some liinc must elapse before ihis can
be consummated, however, that is as
far as ihe erection nf the buildings is
concerned, as this must depend upon a
monetary provision being made at Ihc
next, silling of Hie provincial legislature, we wuuld suggest that if llie
whole of ihc Government stuff i-nnnni
be accommodated ul, Fairview ai present, at least the Recorder could llml
room there, and by being stationed al
a more central posilion, relieve lhe
necessity that now compels llu* many,
having business lodo in his ilcpuii-
iiii-nl, from traveling so many uiiles
out of iheir way, lu carry onlbe same.
Il would he well Iherefore for the government lo lake Ihis into cousldei-
atiuii fur existing conditions
entail  much   loss   of   time,   uml
also a great expense, upun a class who,
as a rule, are little able to afford either.
Although working quietly, nevertheless, D. C, Corbin is pushing ahead
his railway surveys, ami is preparing
ta make demands upon both ihe Pio-
vincial and Dominion Governments,
At present a survey of the Kellle liver
loop is being made, lhe engineers working near Cascade Olty, It was always
Mr. Cut-bill's idea in make the Ketlle
river valley the main iirteiy of travel
as it were, and therefore, thai Ilis
engineers are nun in Hr-Held between
Cascade Oily it nil Carson, would tend
to show, Ihul be sliil clings In:be hope
of being alilu to secure n franchise,
which would allow him to cross Ihe
Iulertiullonal buuutlary line at Cascade
Cily, and hy traversing Hint porlion
uf Ketlle tlvei which is known us
Grand Prairie gain a point at which au
easy re-entry lulu lhe Colville reserval Iiiii could be made, thereby obviating the necessity of crossing uver one
or mure ranges of hills, which he would
I hliged t.odo, should In- becoiupelletl

Mr. P, 0. Andrews, iiccoillilaill Iur

wbu wilh Mr. It, J. Mackenzie recently
visited several uf the milling dislrcln

opinion ihal Boundary Uteek is the
I'oiuing ininiiig i-i'iitie, when railways
shall huve opened up lhe dlslrlcl, Air,
Andrews very probably bus posted
himself well upon tin* extensive and
varied mineral resources of Boundary

E. R, k N. Co.'s charier Iur the construction of a railway from the Coast
through Boundary creek lo the Coluuiliia, ami his travelling companion,

UoO.llullj t he Anchor and Enterprise
mineral claims, iu Long Lake camp, full
particulars of which '.raiisacl.iuu were
published  iu  last-   week's ADVANCE,
That Mr. Andrews inay prove a true
pi-iiphel, and llial quickly, is the earnest hope and confident belief uf nearly
every une pussessing sufficient knowledge of the disirici lu justify him in
coining to definite conclusions on this
important subject.
Has Earned c Holiday.
After an absence from them of ahout
five years, Mr. J. 0. Haas, M. E„ is
ahout tu visit bis liuine and relatives,
in Michigan, U. S, A. He went nut
recently via .Marcus, and will after a
short stay In Spukane, proceed thence
to Michigan. Later ho will go to Virginia, and probably New York and
other eastern cent res.
Mr. Haas has heen closely Identified
wilh tin- mining interests of Boundary
Creek for about three years, and much
good work bus he done during his residence here, quietly and unostentatiously yot persistently, tothehonefil of the
whole district. Possessing a good
theoretical knowledge of mining mutters, supported hy a practical experience extending over many years, his
unselfish uml untiring efforts In obtain
adequate recognition of I he mineral resources nf Boundary Creek, have been
the inni Il'i'i-livc.   Perhaps lbe musl,
Important wnrk he did I'm-the district
—u work, by the way, that residents of
liniiniliiry Creek shewed scant substantial appi latlnn of, since they allowed
him to bear the greater part of the expense as well as the bruntof the labor,
himself-wus tho gathering together of
a large anil representative collection
uf specimens of the minerals occurring
in Boundary Creek; iu preparing u
comprehensive and useful pamphlet
dealing with the district and its resources, and In attending the lf-illi! Fruit
Fair at Spokane, und there exhibiting
the specimens and disseminating information relative to the districl. He
also assisted in compiling Hie pamphlet
printed for distribution ul, lhe 1SII7
Fruit Fair al Spokane, Further than
this, he has contributed mining news
of the district to outside newspapers,
and has freely given information to all
inpuii-ets, whether for publication, or
I'm- private uses.
It is fitting huiI is a matter for congratulation, thnl he has, during his residence In the district secured some valuable milling interests, either all nr in
purl. Among Ihese maybe mentioned
the Bruce, in Graham's camp (now heing opened up): tho Golcondu group
and the Great Hesper and llu- Hecla,
in Smith's camp! lhe Ethiopia, in Long
Lake camp: (lie Phoenix, in Greenwood
camp.and others, He succeeded in Interesting the British Canadian GoltlE,
D. & I. i'u. of Toronto, in tho Ethiopia;
Hon. G, E. Foster, Dominion ex-lliu-
Istcrof Finance, of Canada, in the Golcondu group; the Stratford Development'Company, of Ontario, in the
Bruce, and others whose 11111111*3
are not now remembered,    ll is this
getting of outside particswith infl ice
and wiih available means, lo Invesl in
local mining properties, Unit very serviceable advertising of the-district is
dono, Much 11101*0 might be writ len
in a similar strain, but lhe foregoing is
sufficient to liear testimony to tlie good
service Mr. Unas has done the district,
That he may havu a very enjoyable
holiday, may lind numerous opportunities (which in- will certainly take advantage of if lhey present themselves)
to sliil further spread Information respecting "the coming milling centre",
antl tliat he moy return safely iu the
Spring to take tin active part in, uud

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D. A." is a vein about 2U
inches wide, wilh a pay-streitk of 4 to
12 inches; froui this 8,(1511 His. nf ure
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103,16 gnld per Ion, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
nnd 2 per cent. lend. A tunnel is being
driven nn this vein from which ore. is
being taken, On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The "G. A. li." has a 30-fnot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heayily mineralized with un intimate mixture of iron
and cupper pyrites, galena, blende uml
silvei-glunce. Thetinest pieci'sofwiresil-
verfiiunil onBniindaryCreek were taken
from this shaft. Aveiage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 ozt„ silver; alsu "iS.'KI
gnld and 150 ozs. silver nml nne, the
latest return—$16.03 guld and 1IK14-5
ozs, silver pel' tun.
On the "Dig Ledge" is a 10-foot
quurlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein hus been upencil
up hy cross-cuts on the surface fur 600
feet. A narrower vein bus been
opened up, being line font wide, currying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge ns a spur, un
which a tunnel uf 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, und $40,36 guld'
17i nzs. silver, 2 per eent. cupper.
The "S. F." lies l-etweed lhe G. A. H.
und D,A,,in the direction of the strike
nn lhe G. A. 11. vein. This location bus
been made un a vein uf pynlintiU*.
The "O. ti." has two distinct veins!
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general*chai*ttcter would seem lo
be the snine vein ns thut on the Big
Ledge, nil hough sufficient has not
been done to make Ihis conclusive,
Tlie second vein hns;; at*,' present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
huve shown ynlues in gnld from $4.00
tt.-$170.53, while a',conservative sunipl-
ing by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in gold.
On lhe "S. II. li." are two converging veins uf copper and iron.jpyrites,
on which work is now being dune. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
lOJj'uzs., cupper 11.110 per eenl., or
$10.41 fur nil values.
The "Fi-eiliD.-'iwns located" in De
eeniber, 181)5, inure;.us ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
olher claims than for its present value,
altlintighllhere is lillle dnuhl lhut;ilie

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company having recently purchased the McDonnell
ranch of about 560 acres, adjoining its mineral claims, now possesses unusual facilities for carrying
on mining operations on a large scale. This purchase has secured to the Company excellent
mill and smelter sites; abundant water power for mining, electric light, domestic and other
purposes, and other desirable advantages.
Forty acres of this land, very conveniently and centrally situated at the junction of Eholt
Creek and Boundary Creek, have been surveyed into town lots, and the new townsite has
been named.
BOUNDARY GREEK CITY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes of
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle

practicable railway pass from the east, so will be
nigh  on the line of the new railway from the
Columbia River to Penticton.
Building has already commenced on the new
townsite, which offers particular inducement for
both business and residence purposes. There are
now good openings for several kinds of businesses
and the company will give exery encouragement
to business men establishing themselves at this
point. Prices of lots are within the reach of all,
and buyers building on them will be liberally dealt
with. Full particulars of both mineral claims and
town lots will be given upon application to the
