KDITOHIAL NOTES,
Onr neighbors to the south complain, that as a result of a glanders'
quarantine on reindeer, which will
prevent their crossing tin- International boundary line, a sad! sad!! Christinas
will he theirs.
Such a state of affairs reminds us
that we live in a favored country, und
the more is this brought home to us,
when we remember that no glanders
quarantine will prevent the reindc
from crossing the .Arctic circle, or impede the progress of Father Christmas
tu our homes.
This being the case we lake this opportunity of wishing one and all a
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY
NEW YEAR.
THE YEAR'S PROGRESS,
Now that the year 1807 is within a
few days of its close, tlle piesent appears tu lie a suitable time io review
tbe ptngress this southern mining district has made dut ing tin* year.   Leaving out of consideration the important
discoveries made at  Eureka, Toroda
Creek and olher Reservation points,
and, loo, lhe[developinents on Meyers
Creek and llie pnrls nf the Okanogan
also south of ihe Inteniatiunal hound
ary line, there is much to note in tin
direction nf substantial and, It is confidently believed, permanent advancement.   It will he evident, thai il is not
possible to detail, within Ihe limils of
this comparatively brief survey of lhe
position, all theucliii-veineiiislli.-it have
combined to bring Ihe extensive and
varied resources of this large mineral
hearing area mnre prominently under
the notice of lhe oulside world, yet. u
sufficiently comprehensive suinuutry
may he made twin pact realise thai lhe
forward move has In'oii n imu ked and
iu n,any respecis a satisfactory one.
Today the  urgent  need  of  railway
communication, as no entirely Indispensable condition to proHiahle development*, is recognised and admllted
as it has never been hefore, and this
largely as the outcome of Ihe very encouraging insults that have attended
the limited   amount;of actual mining work  that has heen  reasonably
practicable, And not only is there now
lining a definite move made lowards
railway construction, Iuu mall facilities
have been and an- still hellig increased
inure wagon roads made, aiidadefinlte
movement tii-ule In wards the provision
of .wnter, power, iiiid liglil convenience
of puhlic til lilt y True Ihere are several
necessary adjuncts to material progress
still n wai! iug all enl ion, I he most, pressing heing telegraphic conned inn wilh
the huge rommei-i-ia' centres, hul then-
is good reason lo lielieve that, this and
nther business necessities will he provided during the coining year.
All encouraging feature of Hie situation is the fact thai the notice these
districts have compelled is nut restricted lo the Province, or even the Do
minion, In point of fact parts of them
-Boundary Creek foe insl,-nice—were
almost entirely uuknown in the larger i
cities of the Pruvince, let alone lhe!
Dominion, until long after the more
enterprising spirit of mining men
resilient iii Washington, Montana,
and other pails of Ihe United Stales,
hud hi! them lo acquire mining ir.
(crests here. The Held however is
widening, tuc prominent eastern men
are now Investing, Brilisli capital is
coming in, and even French and German capitalists have hud llmir cepi-i*.
senliifivi-s iu ths country endeavoring
to secure good mining propeii ics
These facts of themselves mark the
year as one of progress,
Coming now to note what has been
done In the individual camps, It may
tie stated with confidence thal.dcvelop-
inenl.s have generally proved expenditures lo have la-en well warranted.
This i.s certainly the case as regards
Boutidaiy Creek. Ill Smith's camp
Ihe Republic G. M. cuuipany, of .Spokane, during the year'deepened the
in.iin shaft uf ils Republic and Last
Chance claims each to 100 feat, and
extended the Noll Such 'uiinel also lo
100 feel, withsallsfaclncy results, The
Boutidaiy Falls G. M. company, of
Vancouver sunk a shaft a depth of 80
or 1)0 feet, on the Boundary Falls claim,
in quartz all the way and having a
strong body of well-mineralised ore
under foot where work was temporarily stopped ut I he depth ed,   On
llu* tioli nnd i. one of a group of six
claims lately bonded lor #J5,0U0 by a
Brilish Development company, in
good financial .standing, a shaft has
heen sunk about 70 feet, the indications met wilh being sufficiently
good lo induce the giving of the bond.
The Ruby, also in Smith's camp, was
recently bonded for $111,000 and is now
being systematically piospecied. Dead-
wood camp has had a lol of work done
on il dining the year, the must striking

big ledge un tin* Mother Lode, now
known lo be IK.") feel wide, and the
opening up, at a level deeper I ban the
ct ossein t ll innil by UK) feet, of a lacge
body uf ore carrying twice as high
assay values as those obtained from
the oce met with in the tunnel. The
$10 000 hondjnu Ihis properly was taken
up lliiring Ihe year, as was also that
fora like sum on the adjoining Slllisel
and Crown Silver, upon which somewhere about. $10,0110 was also expended
iu prospecting, chiefly underground,
'the Great Hopes is now being prospected at the 70 font level; the Gold
Bug and Hidden Treasure, bought for
$1(1,000, arc also being worked; the
Herbert Spencer now under a $(),(X)0
bond, lias given promise of later payable results; the Anaconda group,
bonded by a English syndicate for a
substantial sum, has had a considerable
amount of work done on it, and al
least three claims of tlle big group
owned by tin* Boundary Creek Mining
and Milling company, of Greenwood,
have proved well worthy of flu ther
development.

STRUCK THE  LEDdE.
In the flinnehaha at Camp McKinney
-Rich Free-milling ore.
A few days ago the management at
the Minnehaha mine at Cain]) McKinney had the satisfaction of knowing
thut their efforts, which had for some
time past been directed with a
certain object in view viz, that of cross-
cutting their ledge uta depth of 120 ft.,
after having sunk a vertical shaft and
drifted from it. had been crowned with
success, and that too, even beyond their
expectations, for without doubt ns tains can be at present determined, a very
line vein of ore, about .8 feel wide, and
assaying it is said from $30 to $l!li) to
tin* ton, and free milling, has been disclosed.
This discovery places the Minnehaha
in a fair posilion to rank in the first

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. T^e 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 CREEK CITY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes ol
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimbciiy camp, and the main Ketlle
River respectively, It is also the only known
practicable railway pass from the east,  so will  be
nigh  on the line of the new railway from the
Columbia River to Pentiuon.
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
BOUNDARY CREEK MINING AND MILLING COMPANY, LTD
GREENWOOD CITY, B. C
