THE  COPPER  CLAIM   AND   THE

Immense llodtes of Copper Ore on These
Claims- Over a Quarter of a Million In
Sight on the Copper Immense Udges
and High Grade Ore Work Going Merrily on Good Roads to the Camp.
After llle hiirtl t.'linili ou lhe miser*

comparatively good road, which,thanks
In the efforts nf Mr. J. E. Buss, llie
agent for Messrs. Farrell k Midgeun,
hus heen recently constructed from
Mr. land's ranch tu the claims in the
Copper camp, Regarding the journey
from the point, of view of the picturesque, it leaves little to lie desired,
The hills, dollied in a dull haze of
smoke, with hits of red color where
some low growing shrill), already
tinged liy approaching autumn, relieves the gray and green of the luincli
grass; llle gnunl outlines against tlie
sky, and thegi-iuiness of the solitude
wuitld appeal to any one with the
smallest possible development, of the
a'ilistie faculty, These articles, liow-
t'-.er, should not deal wilh Ihe pic*
I nicsqtte su miichas with the eminently
practical, und scenery, howeyer beautiful, has nothing whatever to do willi
mineral claims, So|to proceed: Aimnt
two and a half miles west of Boundary
creek on I he road one pusses through
Deadwood camp, of whicli we hope to
speak at some other time. The rich
strike liy Messrs. McUlinlock and Morrison, however, is right hy the roadside, and is a subject uf interest to the
passer-by j for the remarkable thing
ahout it i.s that notwithstanding Unfile! that men were working at road-
making some time ago almost on the
very spot, no one noticed any indication of the presence of mineral, and it
was uol. lill quite recently lhat the
rich ore which lies just beneath the
surface was exposed.
After riding some six miles un the
Clipper camp road, one sees a hoard
hearing lhe legend, "To the Enterprise," and a hand with the index
linger extended points lo the right.
Following this direction, ono arrives
in a very short time at. an encampment
uf canvas tents, I hough here and
tliei-e is I he more substantial log house,
Within one of the former temporary
abodes, we found Mr. Austin Hummer,
who very kindly consented to act as
guide. When our representative was
un tlie road lie met two men, wlm,
being asked which claim was the must
worth visiting, time being limited,
answered; "Well, whatever you do,
don't miss seeing the Copper." So to
the Copper we went.
The sight to lie seen there is truly
astonishing—a mountain of copper,
There is mil, the writer veritably believes, another such sight in America,
Tlie ledge, which can lie traced for, il
is said, over 4,000 feet, varies between
50and80feet, uiidevetiinplucesinore, ill
width. Some of the ore runt as high
as 70 per cent, in copper, unit ussuys
have shown from $1(1 to $12 in gold.
The wealth of llie claim, however, lies
iu the iihuiidiinci'nnd the high average
value (between 15 and 20 pet' cent, ull
through) of tlie copper.
The Copper mine was recorded by
Messrs. Austin Hummel- and John
Monti!, on ihe 21st November, 1889j
il was located two years previously by-
Messrs, llowinan anil Leysur, and
known as lbe Blue liini, but for some
reason or oilier was abandoned. Slnet1
1880 Messrs. Hammer antl Murnn Iiu vi
I dime the necessary amount of work to
| entitle Ilium Ion Crown grant, whicli
lhey obtained on the 7th uf April of
I last year. There are now live deep
open crosscuts, a liuiuel showingil|
I lie ledge fur n length uf 780 feet, nud
a shaft Hi feel deep.   The ore now in
sight is estimated liiboiviirlhaqiiar
Ier of n million dollars, The vein,
which is kiinwn as a contact, is between denned porphyry and lime wall
antl entries eiipper ill Ibe form of red
oxide, unlive copper and copper
glance, wilh a quartz giiugue. Although the claim i.s mi the market, we
believe we ore i-ui-rcct ill staling that
I the owners are liy no means in a hurry
j to dispose of their property, which one
day will be known ns oue of the greatest copper mines iu the world,
THE ENTERPMBE.
Another claim in Cupper camp un
the same ledge as llle Coppermine, is
ihe Enterprise, which was recorded on
the 31st of August, 1831, by Ewen
Keightley, Thus Humphrey nnd Colin
McRae, Messrs. Keightly and Humphrey disposed in 1803 nf t heir claim lu
Mr. Boss, acting as agent, for Messrs,
Farrell nod Midgeun, while Mr. Me-
Hue still controls a one-third Interest,
The owners Have been for some tune
past steadily developing the property,
upon which there are now several prospect shafts, and a main shaft which
has reached a depth of 80 feet.   In all
er 20(1 feet of work lias lK*en dune.
Tlie No. 1 shaft has been particularly
well timbered, and a horse whim is
used to hoist the 01*. Mt. Boss is very
hopeful that the Enterprise will prove
valuable mine, antl development
work is steadily going on.
Other claims with ure similar to tliat
of the Copper claim are lhe Lasl
Chance, the King Solomon, the Cup-
pet- ({iieen antl others, Imt sufficient
has been said tu show that u great
future awaits the camp, (and all iiiiii-
anions are fuvolatile tu the opinion
tliat that time is not far distjinl.
AT  TRAIL CREEK
Mr. Fiwh and the Mines.
Mr. Finch, of Spokane, prominently
known iu mining circles, visited several
uf Hie principal properties in Boundary
last week. Ilis expectations, he said,
were far exceeded, anil he was particularly astonished at the size of the greal
copper ledges in Greenwood. The report that Mr, Finch had some thought
if purchasing lhe Knoh Hill and Ironsides was not without foundation nud
it was Ihcrefoiedisappointing iu learn
lhat no transaction hul taken place,
the owners lioldiog lhe properties at a
valuation beyond which Mr. Finch
would possibly huve bei n prepared to
utter | and $10,000 for a prospect, however promising, seems a high liguie,
although Hie determination of tlie
price of bis properly is nobody's business lint the owner's, yet we trust I hat
we will in this Instance be pardoned
for saying that the wisdom of the
course which the proprietors of llie
Knob Kill thought proper to pursue is
upeii to question, providing of course
they Intend lo find a purchaser anywhere in ilieneai-fiitiii-e. Undoubtedly
development will prove ihe Knob Hill
aud Ironsides to he aiming the greatest
of the copper nod gnld mines of North
America, but before this can he proven
large sums of money must lie expended
upon machinery and labor, nod this,
we believe lhe present, owners are not.

According to the Evening News, the
exports lo British Columbia during Ihe
week ending Saturday, August 17th,
amounted to $5,431,50, making a daily
average of $005.20, the largest during
llle summer, Tlie biggest day's business was dune on Saturday,amounting
tu $1,730.88, and the smallest on Monday, which was $015.81. A steady ill-
ciease iu Tacoma's business with British Columbia and the Canadian
provinces has been noticeable during
Hie entire slimmer, and the daily exports made by lucid merchants are
now nearly twice as large as six
mouths ago,"
A llecord In Cricket.
A. 0. McLiiren, a cousin of Mr. Itick-
iii-ds, who resides near Midway, broke
all previous records in county cricket

Has Many (Irlevanees.
We are ill receipt litis week of a letter of a correspondent from Grand
Forks, who signs himself "A Miner."
Miner bus many grievances, though
probably Ibey could all be traced to
one suture—iidci-aiigeineiitiifllie liver.
First lie objects, to the way in which
the "Canadians seem lobe running lhe
country through Tim AdvanceX
This is very complimentary, no doubt,
tons, hut lhe meaning is lather obscure. Then he objects to the situation uf tho recorder's otllce, which he
declares was built, lo help "somebody
to build up a boom town I he asserts
that if a nam "does not record a claim
within lhe prescribed lime, and C'lllie
to this boom Imvu .personally he loses
all rights" to lbe claim. This statement, we do mil. believe io be correct.
Our friend also strongly disapproves
of having to pay fora miner's license.
He concludes his letter with the comforting assurance llllll were "this

Aiiiircliist Mountain.
A number of pre-empt Ions have been
taken up iu and around Anarchist
Mountain this summer, and the
amount of improvements, such as
building, fending, breaking op laud
and pulling in crops, would Indicate
that the people who have determined
lo make Ihis portion of British Columbia their future home are of lhe right
class. Tlmy are principally Americans
from the stale .if Washington, possessed of a wonderful amount of
energy and ready In show Ihal, how-
ever depressed llie linns, lhey mean
in spile of tIk*in In succeed, llissafe
losuy Hint, the rapid development of
the mines in tlie district, will, in llie
neat' future, afford llieni a capital market lor theii produce, ami thev, therefore, will suffer no disappointment ut
having found new homes nnd adopted
a new country. There is root., left in
British Columbia for inlinysueh sturdy
settlers, und lhey should receive every
inducement to settle here.
The Peltiers, principally new comers,
have lnill. t-eveial miles of load ibis
summer between Anarchist Mountain
and Hock Creek, and all thai is now
wanted to give lhe connection wilh
the main trunk road, and consequently
with Hie camps and towns along ilu
route, is a good bridge and crossing at
Buck Creek. Such is deserving ofj
some recognition, and an appropriation
by ihe government fm- this purpose
would be much appreciated, Any
traveler visiting for the first I hue the
Anarchist Mountain settlement, could
not help lielug struck with the fertility
of soil when witnessing the enormously
line crops of hay, grain aud all kinds
of farm produce, that, are being harvested in this elevated and apparently
favored section of British Columbia's
snulliiTii interior, The crops of hay
ami grain oil Mr. II. (I. Sidley's ranch
are so heavy lhat it, makes him feel
tired when he thinks of how long it
will lake lo gel it all into lbe slacks,
This isa Hilly distressing case and lie
is much to be pitied and envied, Tlie
assurance is given lhat :>2 children of
school age are living in the neighborhood of Anarchist Mountain, and although the settlers lire itiiislitnlly ill
coinniiiiiiciition with Hie heads of the

It is hard to believe the whole of the

at len t ii ni nl llie hands of llieiiiilliori-

bringing il to puhlic notice. If ibe

'llie Northwest Miners' Association,
To lho Editor of tlio Advance i

among the mining men of the Noilliwest has long been fell, bolh as to llu*
protection of Hie millingiulerests wilh
reference to legislation, und for the
purpose uf more widely diffusing the
knowledge nf proper meihtals uinl
means for more successful mining.
Tlie object of this association is not
to form a mining exchange, but. to consult together us milling men and men
interested in mines aud encourage the
passage of such laws, bolh state and
national, as will best subserve the milling industry.
Want of organization lias been fell
iu all Lhe mining districts of the Northwest, and while isolated or individual
effort often fails to successfully combat,
adversities which are nit'l with, Ihe
combined interests and general knowledge lu be acquired by co-opeiiilion
has led lo the present movement,which
is llie organization of what we nre
pleased lo nitiue lhe NorlliwestMiuers'
Association, and which should at once
enlist lite hearty support of all who
tire engaged, in whatever capacity, in
mining.
The Held proposed to be covered builds organization, wiih your co-operation anil the endorsement of others engaged in milling in lhe territory,art'

Reform In Bloody Oulell,
He wore it buckskin suit nnd wide-
lirimiiietl lint. The revolvers nt his
belt, looked as if they hail seen considerable use, but he was quiet when llu*
stranger in the smoking car drew him
into couvt'i-Siitiou.
"Yes, I've been pretty tough," he
said. "I guess we nil have out at
Bloody Gulch, but we huve got over it.
Got religion, you know. A fellow
eiime through there last week with a
gospel curt, and be got nil (lie boys out
and talked to thein good nud hard. He
said libit about how 11 feller should be
known by his deeds und not. by the
bluff he puts up. He suid bis work
was what etiuiited and not the atiii.
So we all not thiiikiu' about, what
tough critters we were, and we untile
up our minds lo try n new way."
"To lie good ?" asked the slrnngcr.
"That's it; that's the stuff exactly,"
said the man wilh tlie big revolvers,
" We are goin'to lie good and start n
regular old reform wave shoot In' round
the gulch. There's been nlolof lynchiif
uut there, you know, and so
we took thut. in hand lirst; uintle up
our minds that It hud got to slop, und
stop quick. The boys don't stand no
I oliu' when they get rendy lo move
soiuelbin's gut lo happen, So when
we heerd about eastern cities und their
inform committees and their civic
federations; and all Unit sort of stuff,
we got together antl organized n little
committee of own, li was allot one,
too, I tell ye. All the boys belong to
it that iur any good, nnd they swore
they'd slop lyncllill' inside Iwculy-foui
hours, and lhey done il."
"Organized an niililyiii-liing league,
1 take it." suid the sl lunger.
"Tliut's wluil it wns, and it was a
hummer. Wc just waited our chance
to keleli sumo of lite totlgll fellers that
was lakin' lliu law into their own
hands, and we gol ii. We heen) of a
lyncliin'Ihnt was eoiliiti' off Unit veiy
nighl we oi'giiiilzcd uur reform coin-
uiiltec. Some of lhe fellers from the
oilier end of lbe glllcll bud located II
boss lliief, ami llx'V were goin' oul. to
String llllll up. Well, stranger, tl lluss
thief is a pretty tlill'lietl menu sort of u
ci-llter, antl I lllll'l gol intlili use for
'em myself, but religion is religion,
nud if n feller's gol il, I reckon he's gut
to slick to ii. So we went out after
the lads Ihnt was gtilu1 lo lynch the
boss tliii-f, anil we taiiigbl'em about it
mile up the glllcll, We saved lhe lluss
thief, slruiigei', nml we labored with
tlie lynchers good and hard—just like
the gospel feller said we should."
" Were yon successful '/"
"You bet we wns. They ain't lieen
it lyncliin in lbe gulch sincelltntniglil,
When we waul inform you bet we get
it, and get it. quick, ttiul everybody
knows llnil. we mean business. There
can't be no mistake about that,"
" Willi did you do wilh tbelynchers?"
" We lynched 'em."
