Ol? the two authenticated instances
of deliberate elnltn-jumptng which
have heen brought before lbe courts
in Ihis district, in each case lhe <if-
fi'iulci' received a pretty si rung intimation lhat claim-jumping when fraud is
clearly proved to have been it motive,
is not tolerated on this side of Ihe line.

THERE Is however one point in Mr.
Fletcher's letter to Postmaster Hain
of Mi'lwav. hearing on the subject
which demands explanation. Air.
Fletcher suv : " I hnve arranged for
cnrriiige of mails between Grand
Forks and Murciis, and mail will lie
carried by Messrs, Manley k Averlll's
singed iily, or as frequently as stage
runs." Now ll strikes us as we believe
il will strike every one raiding ||,e
ipialillcalian In Mr, Fletcher's sentence, thai this is a very unlinsliii'ss*
like manner of carrying out a postal
arrangement, Have Messrs. Manley
Ic Averill discretional p..whin to run
stages and carry the mail when Uiny

Jack McDonald of Summit camp met
with a painful accident last week. He

the animals frightened nt some noise,
attempted to run away. The rope by
whicli McDonald was leading the
horses twisted aroundhisthiiniblnsuch
a milliner us In cause dislocation, He
was also thrown down and two ribs
were fractured.
The acreage under crop this year at
the Prairie is nearly double that of
last, The rancheis expect, with good
reason, that even under these circumstances, they will not he able to cope
with the expected increased demand
for farm produce. Mr. Mill-, has
seede-1 down over a hundred acres nf
the Murray and Coryell ranch, while
Mclnnis & Vaughan. Mr. Coveat and
Mr. Spraggett have placed large tracts
of land, hitherto used as pasture,under
cultivation.
The town of Nelson, Wash., is if
rough at least attractive, particularly
nt night time, when the ground is dotted wiih camp fires surrounded l.y men
in the picturesque costumes adopted
on the frontier. It is a good specimen
of the new mining town, with its rapidly put up shacks, ils innumerable
tents, and ils air of boom and bustl
A saloon only is lacking to complete
the picture, and this owing lo the reg
illations in force on Indian reservations
is not obtainable.
The Central Washington Railway
officials are responsible, It, is said, for
giving information to prospectors on
the other side that Ihe best way to gel
to the reservation was to travel by
their line fo Wilbur and from lliere tn
tali.'the Sun Poil wagon road. A number of men a.iuii' in by tlml route
lately mul sulfereil grant hardships,
The trail is of ll... roughest and yel

At, present owing to the gradual
thawing of snow and ice, the main
trunk road to the west of Camp McKinney for about ten miles is in a
frightful condition, and extremely difficult to freight oyer. Those accustomed to the making of roads claim that
every spring will see a repetiinn of the
same state of affairs until the Government make an appropriation towards
defraying the cost of raising the road
bed. A matter that should have received attention this summer,
W. T. Armstrong of Vernon visited
Boundary lust week and went ns far as
("arson. He purchased a lot at Anaconda, and intends lo open a branch
business in hardware there this summer. Speaking of the mail facilities
fnr this district, Mr. Armstrong remarked that the proposed system if
granted would he due chiefly to the
efforts made by the people of Vernon,
Mr. McKelvie of the News, himself
and others having made strong representations to Ottawa urging the necessity of a change foe the better. If
so, we are greatly indebted to the
people of Vernon.
Notice is given of application for

If the people of Anaconda nre remarkable for nny one thing it must, be
for their hospitality. But, while they
would not turn a dog away hungry,
they draw the line at bears. The bears,
however, don'l seem to appreciate the
fact, The other day a particularly
shaggy and unkempt specimen of the
genus bruin visited Harry Morgan's
lent and, looking ut some bacon suspended to the roof, remarked: "Now,
If there is one thing in the world I do
like it is really good fat bacon. Allow
me. Ah, thanks!" "You he shot I"
shouted Harry, much taken aback, hul
there was no gun handy, so fhe bear
Wasn't. He merely smiled and carried
away Ihe bacon.
Things are very lively just, now al
Ourson, lots are selling well, and n
number of buildings an. to be erected
as sunn as lumber can be procured. I
McLaren Bros'addition to I he hotel is
well under way. When this building
is completed it, will be om* of the best
built and neatest of the hotels iu the
district There are smile twenly-tlve
rooms which, hy the way, are plastered, I
II distinction mil shared by any olher I
house of llie kind. A plastered loom
is bolh warmer i.s winier and cooler in i
summer then one in which the lini-.li is
wood merely. The CaiTOli townsite
people believe Ihal I licit- town is the
natural distributing point and trade
centre of their end of the district. Ill
is situated in such a way that a railroad entering lhe reservation will lie
bound lo establish a depot there. They
think thai, when (he new road by Lone
and Mowuji creeks is built, and engineers are now surveying the route,
that travel from the Slates will l.e entirely diverted to Carson. This projected road will bring Carson within
thirty miles ol Marcus.

Mr. D. A. Carmicluiel is crrrying on
development work on Ilis claim the
Victoria situated in Fairview camp.
The property is looking well.
ll is snid Ihal between three to five
thousand men are prospecting nn Ihe
Colyille reservation, The locations so
far made are chiefly placer. This is
because the snow is still nn the hills
and lhe quarlz lends are sliil covered.
Afler drifting 112 feel on the Gold
Drop, n shnfl is now being sunk. The
men nre so far down some forty feet.
The ore Hint is on the dump shows

(Icorge Rankin, who bus been working on the Gold Drop, has left to do
assessment work on snme properly
staked by him when on Ihu geological
survey Inst summer with Prof, Dawson
at, Adam's lake. The Indications of
mineral in that locality are very
promising,
J. R. Limn _, an old lime prospector,
was in lown Friday, and will prospect
in ihe district this season. Mr. Laiintz
spent last sens,in in Alaska and says
the best ground in llnil counlry, wiih
the exception of the Yucnn, will not
average more than IHI cents per day to
the man.
A party nf sixteen men hare located
a number of claims adjoining one

The men working on the Volcanic

above the original tunnel. An immense ledge bus been found with rock
running from $00 lo $70. There can
be no doubt but that lhe Vulcanic will
one day bea great mine. Noonede.
serves better than Mr, Brown to succeed, nnd every man in Hie rump will
be glad lo hear if he does.
Mr. DeGrey bus bought a qunrter inleresi in the Blrdinn, Camp Cnrsiui,
Hn bus also bonded Hie Double E,
Bunch Grass and Lndy Franklin lodes.
Work is In commence al once on the
Blrdinn, These properties are free-
milling quurlz propositions, anil if
lhey prove, after development, ns
good ns Ihe Indications on Ihesurfnee

taken up, a slump mill will be brought
in, probably Ibis sum •.
One nf the mnst important deals so
far made in lhe history of the camp is
the sale of IlieSkvlark and Denver to
Ihe Lexington Mining Company, represented by Mr. Reuger, wns consummated lasl Thursday, TheSkylark belongs lo the class of high grade propositions, und bus already, under adverse
conditions been proved to be a good
mine. The claim was Ineated on the
20th ot July, 1803, by J. Atwood. Later
on it wus leused lo A, N. Synionds, J.
Wnllnce and It. N. McCarren, who
sank two shafts, one II "ty the other
sixteen feet deep. They made i
shipment of ore which ran In the value
of $158 to the Ion. The lease expiied
In Febiuiry, 1801, The mine was then
worked by the owners, nnd in spite
of the expenses of shipment, the ore
being curried on puck horses toMnrcus
at. a cosl of $30 per ton, the Skyluik
more, than paid for its development.
The course of the vein is north and
south, with a dip of forty-live degrees
(o the east. The ore chute has been
trocok on I he surface for 400 feet, The
Lexington Mining Company is bolh
wealthy and enterprising, and it, may
therefore be safely predicted that the
Skylark will be worked for all it is
worlh. This should have the effect, of
bringing Boundary sliil more prominently inlo notice,
