THE REPUBLIC GROUP,
BONDED FOR $75,000 BY AN ENO
LISH COHPANY.
Company Plans to do 800 feet of
Development Work.
On February 2lst the information
was published in The Advauck that
the Republic group of mineral claims,
situate in Smith's camp, hud been
bonded for $75,000 and that a preliminary payment of $3,000 had been
made, on behalf, it is understood, ol
the Anglo-Columbian Company, of
London, England, represented in lliis
province by Mr. G. D. Mackay, of Trail
and employing as its mining engineer
Mr. R, W. Macfarlane, A. M. I. C. E.
The group consists of tHeRepublic.Last
Chance, Non Such and Hidden Treasure, adjoining claims ly*ng between
one aud Iwo miles north west of Boundary Falls. An especinl inteiest attaches lo one of the claims—the Non
Such—for not only does il possess excellent showings of ore, opened up to 11
comparatively large extent, but it also
enjoys the distinct ion of being one of
the oldest cliiiins, if not actually the
oldest, eluiin, in Boundary Creek district. Whether it was the first locution
or first on record is a point not yet
clearly settled locally, but one fact is
incontestable, it is the oldest cluim in
Ihis respect thut it has been kept
"alive" in tbe official records ever since
May 7,1881), nn which duy it was recorded in Ihe joint names of Messrs
Smith, Mitchell and McElvey, No
Information is just now available to
show whether or not Messrs Mitchell
and McElvey have dime likewise, but
it is well known thut Mr. W. T. Smith
lias "stayed with it"eversinre, through
its many vicissitudes, at lusi, it is Imped
and believed, to see bis practical faith
und unwavering confidence It) the
value of the claim folly justified,
Mr. Smith's account of tbe circumstances under which the Non Such was
located is us follows : Early in 1880 McElvey uml himself, when ou their way
in from Colville, Wash,, lo limine
Creek, B. 0. (then attracting much
notice,) stopped over at, L, Eliult's camp
on lhe Hut now known us llie town of
Midway. They prospected up Bouudury creek beyond the oid plneer working, uud on foe u short, distance ubove
ibe falls. Qettliigjiuto the neighboring
hills they eventually located the Non
Such about a mile norlh of what ure
now known as Boundary Fulls. A lun-
nel wus commenced, and Inter much
other prospecting work was done, Ibis
having lieen spread over several years,
Other locutions followed, and in 18IKI
the Non Such und Ihree oilier claims,
these forming the piesenl, Republic
group, passed into the possession of an
incorporated mining company,
The Republic group is owned by the
Republic Gold Mining company, capitalized at $750,000 in $1 shares, and
organized in Spokane about two years
ago. Among the chief stock-holders
are Messrs W. T, Smith, of Greenwood,
and E, J, Roberts and O, D, Molt of
Spokane Fulls and Northern Hallway
company, Spokane, fhe last named being the secretary to the Republic coinpaiiy. No slock hus yel been offered
to the public, the ninney expended lo
dule in developinenl, etc., hnving been
supplied by the few men interested in
the company,
The Non Such has hud tlie most developinenl (lone on it of uny in the
group, There appear lo be ihree
parallel veins on the claim, within
llmllr about 170 feet apart, trending
north-west and south-east. The main
vein is in a talcose schist formation.
It is from Ihree to five feel in width,
the mat rix beingqiinrlzunil the mineral
in it iron pyriles and galena, currying
gold und silver. It Is a well-defined
l"iid, traceable through the Non Such,
Republic und Lust Chance claims,  A
mill lesl of 5,1100 pounds of this ore
gave a return of $10 in gold to tin* ton
and concentrates averaging over $51X1,
I he latter value helng In gold and silver, This test was made at a two-
stamp mill creeled below Boundary
Falls by the Spokane rSOreat Northern
Mlnlngcompany,8lnoe disincorporated,
hut which four or five years ago owned
and worked in a small way several
Boundary creek claims, Tbe dip of
the leud vuries, apparently, from 7 to
15 degrees. The ore runs fairly
evenly hut about two feet, on the font
wall yields the best viilues. Itlethought
probable these three leuds ivill come
closer together us lhey go down.
The Non Such ground being better
adapted to tunnelling than to sinking,
two tunnels have been driven. The
lower or main tunnel is  in about 270
feet, with a branch slutting at ahout
00 ft. in and running nnrlh nearly TO ft,
This branch intersected three small
quartz veins, two being about 12
inches in width und one eight inches,
the quartz carrying go'd values from
$10 to $18, and also showing much
native silver. The upper or No. 2 tunnel is about 70 feet above No. 1, It Is
in about 1)2 feet und hus been run on
the main vein, which, however, is here
much broken, lhe tunnel heing ton
near the surface for lhe ore to bo solid
and in pluce, Tbe assay values of ore
obtained in it are from $18 lo $20 in
gold, It is proposed to further extend
both these tunnels. The continuation
of No. 1 will probably mike the main
vein in less than 20 feet, the distance
to be driven of course being governed
by the dip of lhe vein. The indications
in the face, however, favor the supposition that the lead is being approached.
Tlie Republic has a vein eight to 14
inches iu width, whicli uppeurs to be
running at right angles to the slate
formation at lis contact with diorile.
Its (lip is uiiuul 15degrees, und the ore
is similar in general chuructet to lhat
met willi in I he Non Such, but of higher values, average samples from different, parts assaying from $80 to $80
in gold aud 80 ozs. silver. An incline
shaft is now down 100 feet, half of this
sinking huviug been done lastsummer,
The vein is well defined and holds its
width all the way down, and at lhe
bottom of the shall the quartz shows a
deal of free gold, The claim lies about
west and adjoining the Non Such,
There is on the Lust, Chance claim an
incline shaft down 100 feet on a vein
three lo live feet in width which from
lhe several outcrops appears to be the
north westerly extension of one of the
one Such leads. Like these leads it contains galena and iron in it quartz
gattgue,values being in gold and silver,
with a much larger proportion of the
latter, At from 15 tn 50 feet native
silver showed freely all lhrough Ihe
vein, assays running us high as 1,440
ozs of silver to the Ion, The work dune
on the Lust Chance lust summer also
consisted of 50 teet of shaft sinking,
while on the Non Such the tunnel was
extended a like distance, No work to
speak of has been done on I he remaining claim nf lhe group, the Hidden
Treasure. Boundary creek is within
three-quarters of a mile ot lbe Non
Such, There is u good wugon road
from the cliiiins down lo the main
roud, along which is thesurveyed route
of the railway, Timber and water in
abundance nre obtainable in Ihe im-
mediate neighborhood,
"'it is understood to lie the present intentions of Mr. Mucfuriiine's principals
to do about 800 feet of development
work on Ihese claims. This will include lhe exlension of both tunnels on
the Non Such. Drifting will commence
ul once in No, 2 tunnel, and in No. lso
soon as the main lead shall have been
cut. About len men will bu employed
wilh Mr. Smith in charge, the work
to be carried out us directed by Mr.
Macfarlane, Already men have been
putting the mine buildings in order
nnd soon work in lbe mine will lie in
full swing, It is slated lhat if the ore
does not change In quantity or value,
u stamp mill and concentrator will he
provided a few inonlhs hence.

Better Road Connections.
The Midway cninpifny hnving done u
liberal pint towards shortening unil
otherwise improving Ihe wagon-road
connections lietwcen Midwny und
points en rouleto lbe Spukane Fulls
nnd Northern railway, all action in
the direction of continuing sniici*essni'y
a work, will he wuruily welcomed by
residents, who earnestly hope for roud
connections that will obviate lhe present ueeessily of travelling the roundabout route via Cascade City, Grand
Forks and Carson, The agitation
recently started in Nelson, Wash,,
having for its object. Ibe establishment
of u Nelson Road District will, therefore, pleuse ninny people in I his districl
who are anxious to see Improvements
effected, From the "Reservation
Record" it is learned that nt a well-
attended pnbl|c meeting, held at Nelson recently, it was decided lo petition
lhe Board of County Commissioners of
Stevens County, Washington to establish a llonil District, the proposed
boundaries of whicli have been specified
In the petition di awn up. Tin* follow
excerpt from ihe report of lhe mecliiig
us published in the "Record" will serv
to show Ihose familiar with lbe position
of Midwny in relation to the Nelson-
I'm oka road, thai the success of the
inoveiiienl here noted would necessarily
involve making lllis town much more
accessible from Ihe south and southeast, which isu very desirable ohjecl lu
be st liven fnr t
"The assembly voted lo pelilion lllc
commissioners for the establishment of
I be present roud. Relative to the Lone
Hunch iiiiilc Mr. W. 0. Morris tnnde
nn Interesting talk, giving more practical Information than had yet been
laid before the people of Ihis section
As u resident of Marcus Mr. Morris has
several times lieen over the proposed
route willi ibe sole object ill view of
sl inlying its feasibility ns a route for
wagon roud. He bus made careful
estimates uu the cost of building, Ims
secured data as to elevation, distance
In he travelled nnd grades that can be
secured, nnd bus come to the con
elusion that the Lone Hunch mad is
not only u practical proposition, lull is
absolutely essential In the business
inleresls of the entire seelion this side
of the Keltle River divide, including
Eureka as well as the Curlew valley
und lbe seelion of whicli Nelson is the
liusiness nucleus, Tbe une feature of
Ihe Lone Hunch rnud which, if it lind
none other to recommend it. for consideration, would place it, fur beyond
the Kettle Fulls rond and lhe stale
road, so far as feasibility is concerned,
is the low altitude of the puss, Actual
Investigation lies proved lhat the
Kettle Fulls roud cannot be mnde
across lhe summit under un elevation
nf 0,200feet,and thai lhe lowest possible elevation reached ou the piesenl
route of the state toad is 5,7(111 feel,
while the suiiiniil of lhe Lone Hunch
puss bus un elevation of only 2,600 feel,
These llgures are correct, und Ibey
imply mean Ihis—that while there
will he anywhere from one to live feel
of snow on the summits of both the
Keltic Fulls and state roads iu lite
spring llionlhs, long after wheels bad
superseded runners In tbe valleys, the
Lone lliinch pass would be uniler practically Iho on 'liinuiic cotiiliijoiis us
ilu* surrounding valleys nnil would con
seqitently be open to travel nl nil limes
of the year."
If such in* Ihe conditions uiny the

REPUBLIC CAMP NOTES.
The following extracts are from it
letter received last week from Republic
camp (Eureka) by a resilient uf Midway:—
''There are four grocery stores here,
nne drug store, two saloon,s]two barns,
n25-cent restaurant, twu blacksmith's
shops, and two cigar si ores. There is
a gond opening here for ,1 shoe store, 11
hardware store und gond restaurant,
"The Republic is working aliout 12o
men in tlie mine, stamp-mill and saw
mill. The slump-mill is nearly lln-
ished. The Bl.-iektuil is working 10
men, Ihe San Poll 12, the Mountain
Linn II and Tom Thuinji. These minis
will shortly put on mote men. The
Belle, .liiniho, nnd Lakeside will commence working ill a few days, Many
of prosperities ure doing their assessment work now*- Taking it all In all
there are at least 8011 men ill Eureka
camp, The Republic is shipping ore
right, along. Rel urns have been received from Iheir Hist carload, which
went -$103 to the ton,
"There are quite a few idle miners 111
camp jusl now, bul 1 ihink there will
he a shortage of men in a few weeks.
Torn-da Creek liids fair tu liecome a
rival of Eureka camp, and the coming
summer will probably show some wonderful niines lliere. None of the properties are yet developed lull, some of
the assays from ore laken frnni lhe
grass runts almost makes one'a hair
stand on end. Snow has again fallen
uud now lies on the giound to a depth
of live inches, A week ago the hills
were hare, sn the prospectors ure now
sorely disappointed tit see the snow
again,
"Ii bus been a hard matter to get
freight in, freighters having frequently
to change their loads frum sleighs to
wngiuis and Ihen buck uguin to sleighs.
It.seems unlikely that the new road
from Kettle Fulls lo Eureka will ever
be tinished. The men wlio have been
working on it. are nuw in town hut
they will not be aide tu obtain their
wages until the county accepts the
roud."

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A " is a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches j from tais 8,051 lbs, of ore
was shipped to the smeller, giving
$103.15 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent, lead, A tunnel is being
driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. R," has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyriles, galena, blende and
silverglance. Theflnest piecesnfwiree.il-
verfniiiid uiiBoundaryCreek were taken
from this shaft, Average assays from
different plnces across the vein gave
$8,00 gnld, 50 ozs. silvers also $8,00
gnld and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return—$15.05 gold and 100 4-5
ozs. silver per ton,
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites, This vein has been opened
up by cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet, A narrower vein has been
opened up, lieing one foot wide, carrying considerahle copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge as a spur, nn
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs, silver, and $40.35 gold
174 ots. silver, 2 per cent, copper
The "8, P." lies hetweed the G. A, R,
and D, A„ in the direction ot the strike
on the ti. A. ti. vein. This location has
en made on a vein of pyrrhotite.
The " O, B," has two distinct veins 1
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem to
be the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at, present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
havo shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a conservative sampling by Mr. S, S, Fowler, M. E. gaye
$20,110 in gold.
On lhe"S. H. B." ure two cnnverg-
ing,veins uf copper and irun pyrites,
on which wnrk is now being done. An
average nssny gave, gold $1.50, silver
ldjj ozs,, copper 11,90 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values,
The "Fred D," was located in De
cetnher,] 1895, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its present value,
although there is liltle doubt that, the
large vein un the O. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
this claim,
The "J. A, C." has a large iron-
capping running through It from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet.
The ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done on
them.

This company is registered under the
Companies Act, 1890, and amending
