EDITORIAL  NOTES.
In our next week's issue we will cull
attention to some matters affecting the
welfare of the citizens of Fairview, and
residents uf utlier parts uf the district.
Want uf space precludes our doing sn
at present.
Another  $50,000   Bond.
The Enterprise and Anchor mineral
claims, situate in Long Lake camp,
have been bonded by Jlr. ti. 3. Jlack-
enzie, uf Toronto, foi the sum uf $30,-
000. The claims nre owned by the
Greenwood Gold Mining k JlillingCo.,
u Spokane organization, incorporated
under the laws of the stale of Washington, Among the principal stockholders in Ihe compnny are Messrs
Geo, D. Leysim, Emerson and J. A.
Cameron. Jlr. Leyson is one nf tlie
pioneer prospectors, having, mure l linn
ten years ngo come up to Rock creek,
frum the American side and then pros-
peeled across country to Boundary
creek nnd on In Ihe Knntenay from
what is now Gump McKinney, In company With his father and Geo. Bower-
man, milking a location in Copper
camp un Ibe way. Messrs Emerson
and Cameron are Toronto men whn
dm Ing the past summer, did sum,,
effective prospecting wink 011 Ihe
claims now- tinder nol iee.
tX-The Enterprise nnd'(Anchor are adjoining claims, Ihu former lying south
and immediately contiguous lo lhe
Jewel, owned by the Prospecting Syn-
dicaled of British Columbia, Ltd., of
Vancouver. They are located on a
lead which is staled tn have been
traced lhrough at least six claims along
il.sN.E.and S.W. course. These nre lhe
Denero Chit-o, Denern Grande, Jewel,
Enterprise, Anchor, and Ethiopia
respectively, The lodeisquartz,showing four feet in width in a 'iti fool shaft
on the Enterprise, this shaft being
about 1,800feet from the Jewel inuin
shaft, which is down UIO feet. Three
prospect holes, from six to len feet ill
depth, have also been put down, one011
the Enterprise and two uu the Anchor,
The quartz hns been exposed in each
of these and its character is similar 111
all of them. Il is mineralised with iron
pyrites and galena, and tellurium and
petsite also occur in ll. The wnlls nre
clean and well-defined, lbe lode being
distinctly separated frnni ;them by
seams of tale or gouge matter. The
richest ore is generally met wilh near
the bunging wall, all hough lhe ore
right across I ojl he foni.wull curries afuir
proportion of the values, which are iu
gold, silver and lead. Assays of, live
samples taken fnnn the oil-font level
are slated to have averaged $100,00 In
all values,
The owners nf the claims have
demonstrated their confidence in their
value by accepting a twelve-months'
working hond without requiring Ihe
payment of any cash dining the currency of the bond. Should ilm property develop satisfactorily Jlr, Mackenzie will have to pay tin* whole
of ihe $50,1X111, al tin* expiration
of twelve months in order to
redeem the hond und secure a transfer
nf the property, Meanwhile he wid
have tiido a comparatively In rgr anion 111
nf development work, It is Intended
lo first sink tin* Enterprise shaft In 2110
feel, when, shiiulil lhe results obtained
donn to llnil. depih appear to wurranl
il, tt 800-foot tunnel will he driven tn
c iiiiii'i'l with Ibis shaft at the 21X1 fool
level, The coiillgiii-ation nf (he Enterprise ground is such Ihal il. will be
practicable to gain depth down to 700
feel liy a longer I muir! run in al a pro-
portimiately lower level Ihnn lhat just
mentioned.
Within a month from date two shifts
of men will be put on to commence
sinking the shaft, and more will be
employed as depth is alt,-lined. The
work will be doiie under the direction
of Mr, J. A. Cameron, and it will he
continued right through the winter
and as much longer as shall be required
to satisfy Mr, Mackenzie that be will
or will not. be justified—ttu the case
may be—in taking up the bond. The
currying on of continuous mining work
on this property as well as nn Ihe
Jewel will lend In restore the confidence lu Long Luke camp, thai fur 11
while bus been much shaken by an
entire cessation of work 011 all, the
better known claims in the camp.
There is now a gooil wagon rnnd In lbe
Jewel camp, so'the Enterprise too will
have the benellt of road connection
wilh the Bouudury Creek towns, this
heing an Important considers.!ion when
supplies have tn be regularly taken in

MINING.' NOTES,
Jlr. P. Hi>lsluh;hns lately been doing

rich specimens of ore showing niuch

found un this claim, but, as Ihese were
found In narrow stringers which gen-
cially ran mil, allenliun has latterly
been turned lo the bigger ledge nuw
being opened up nnd which gives promise of pcrmunciK-e.
The Marcus Midway Road.
Information has been received to the
effect that lhe appropriation for the
construction nf the state road between
Marcus and Eureka has heeuoxhatisted
so Ihal the i-iuul can not yet he com-
pli'led between those two places. This
islo he regielted, for were there 11
good road made llirough to Eureka,
much nf the travel from Marcus to
Boundary Creek would very probably
conn* lhat way. It is slated that, for
aboul. 30 miles the road bet ween Eureka
nnd Midway—-from Cm-lew lake up to
this lown—is in good travelling condition, and, too, has no long heavy
grades. The work of pulling a roud
lhrough from Kellle Falls In Eureka
hus been making gond progress, bin. is
unlikely to be completed until next
summer, Meanwhile freighters from
Marcus to Boundary Greek will generally use Ihe roud over the mountains
froui Grand Prairie, fnr lhey will uul
incur the expense uf a convoy frmu
Carson to Midway, after having already reported lu lhe Customs Officer
at Cascade Oily, When the new roud
is completed, so I hul lhey can travel in
U. S. letriloiy all the way between
Miireus nnd Midway, they will noine
this way lo avoid llle climb over lhe

PAIRVIEW   NOTES.
(From our own Corrosponilctil.)
We hear minors of a large company coming lo the camp to open up a
lot of claims, That is what we want,
Give us a few good, reputable mining
men, and Hie future of the camp is
llSSIUTll,
As our ignorance about stamp milling is remarkable, we c.iiiuol say what
the Tin Born Is doing, but hope I'm
good results, as undoubtedly do tlio
stock-holders,
We luiiler.slanil the Joe Dandy mill
is on its way here. It will be a factor
in helping Fiirvie.v to become the hub
of the mining universe.
There ia a merry parly of ynung sons
of Britain with us nl. presenl. They
have congregated here from all parts
of tho wurld, from Midway to Johannesburg: Patagonia lo tho North Pole.
Among them are to be found Messrs.
Riley, Stewart, Campbell, Grant, Dig-
by, Wliilc, and Skinner, They are a
jolly lot of fellows, and may they stay
with Fairview until it becomes the

Recently a herA of cattle which were

and belonged to Mr. T. Ellis of Penticton, where taken across tbe International boundary line at this point,
the idea being to take them through

then cross into Canadian territory a-
gain. This was being done to avoid
driving over Boundaryjinountain. Unfortunately for Mr. Ellis, Customs Inspector McDonald of Oro was in  the
neighhm*hood'rahd_herTi5ii¥gThiJ

MINING .NOTES.
The combined pay-rolls of the Old
Ironsides and Knob Hill, in Greenwood
camp, now shew a total of 21 men in
receipt of pay.
The force working on the Winnipeg, in Wellington camp, now numbers 15 men. Shaft sinking and the
placing in position of tlie newly-arrived
plant and machinery, are occupying
the attention of most of them.
Mr. M. H. Kane recorded on the 13l.li
inst, his location of the Sunrise mineral
claim, iu Long Luke camp, not the
Sunset as incorrectly published last
week. The Sunrise is a re-location of
ihe claim formerly known us Lbe
Sunset.
Five men are at work at present on
the Hidden Treasure, in Deadwood
camp. This claim and the adjoining
Gold Bug are owned by Mr, A. .Druck-
er, M. P. for Northampton, England,
whose local agent is Mr. L. S. Moulton
Barrett, of Greenwood.
The crosscut at the bottom of the
l(K)-foot winze on the Mother Lode,
Deadwood Camp, is now lieing driven
towards the hanging wall. In the opposite direction a width of nine or ten
feet of good ore has been passed through
The new shajton the List Chance,
in Skylark caihp, is reported to he between CM and 70 l'oet in depth. Mr.
McGrath, who Is iu charge, is doing
good work on this claim, which will, it
is expected, yet give a very jiioil n
count of Itself,

thesame plucea one-third interest in
the Free Coinage and a one fourth
Inleiest iu Ibe Legal Tender. Bolh
cliiiins are silualc in the southern part
of Greenwood camp.
The shaft on the Springdale, in Skylark oamp, is no.v d nvii 21 feet. Tne
ore gets wider as it is sunk upon
There is three feet of quartz in tlie bottom of the shaft now, which shews
copper pyrites freely. Assay values
improve with depth, tbe latest assay
returning SJII11.-12 in gold, silver and copper, The shaft is now protected by a
good shaft-house, so that work can be
carried on in all weathers without inconvenience. Mr. J. Christie and those
associated with him in tlie ownership
of this claim, are very much pleased
with its appearance.
Work is again proceeding on the
Golden Treasure, in West Copper
camp, thero now being nine or ten men
employed oh this claim, which is one
of a number acquired liy the Brilisli
Columbia (Kettle River) Mining and
Exploration company of London, England. The company was organized In
London by Mr. J. E, Hooper, who is
expected soon to arrive at Boundary
Creek, and who will very likely arrange
(or tho thorough prospecting of the
claims down lo a depth sulllcicuL to indicate the general eharacler of the ore,
and what itis like as regards quantity
nnd value. Mr. D. Br) ant is directing
the work now being ihine on the (iiililen Treasure, the prospects of which
ure considered to he very bright.
Au agreement has been entered into
hetween Mr. Thus. I). Johnson, of

of which amount $500 has been paid to
Mr. Johnson uud the halanceispayable

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D. A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with u pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from Ibis 8,0511 lbs, of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$1011.15 gold per Ion, 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 tbe same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. li." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an Intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende nnil
silverghince. The finest picccsnfwiicsil-
verfoiuid onBoundaryOreek were taken
from this shaft. Avetage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 OZI, silvei:; also $8.00
gold and 150 nzs. silver and one, lbe
latest return—$15,05 gold and 11)0 4-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On Ibe "Big Ledge" is a 10-finil,
quartz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites, This vein has been opened
up hy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, being one foot wide, currying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge us a spur, on
which a tunnel nf 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $38 gnld
nml 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40.86 gold-
17J ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The " S. F." lies l.etweed the G. A. R.
and D.A.,in the direction of I he strike
on lbe G, A. H. vein. This local inn has
been made on a vein of pyi-rbotite.
The "0. B." has two distinct veins I
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
anil general character would seem to
be the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make Ibis conclusive.
The second vein hasji at"present a
width of nearly three feet, Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to;$170,B8, while ^'conservative sampling hy Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gaye
$20.00 In gold.
On I ho "8. H. ti." nre LwiA*onverg-
ing veins of enpper und iron pyrites,
on which work is now biting dune. An
average nssny gave, gold $1,50, silver
16} nzs., cupper' 11.1)0 per cent., or
$40.41 for all values.
The''Fred D." was located; in De
cenibcr, 181)5, jnm-e^iis ground fur a
luisis for mining operations for the
olher cliiiins than for its present value,
although';! hero; is little doubt lhat the
largcjveln on, tht-O. ti. runs} through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
litis claim,
Tlie ",T. A. C." hns a large iron-
capping'running through itjfi'om the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
'the ore can ics a considerahle percent
age of of coppet and $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done on
them.

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company aving 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, domest i < \ 1 c 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 ol
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively, It i.s 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 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
