EDITORIAL NOTES.
Although promised last spring,
the authorities have Inken nu steps ns
yel to furnish bridges ut llle crossings
of Rock creek and Chrislina creek, I wo
sl renins, difficult lo ford nt certain
seasons of the year, and lecugni-/. d as
dangerous even by Ihe officials having
in charge the carrying mil of public
work in the disirici. Just why these
bridgesaren.il heing built remains it
secret with the officials themselves, ns
we believe we are correct when wn suy
that provision was made for them iu
this years appropriations, all hough we
are aware that no special stun was
voted for thecal lying out of the win k.
If the funds ate still in hund, and a
hesitating policy only is being pursued,
itistn he hop-d the officials will al
once consider the advisability of starting work, so thut at least the bridge
over Rock creek may he provided for
winter use, a boon lo he desired hv nil
those having lo travel on tbe main
road leudhm from Pentictou to Bnutid-
ary creek, for Ihe simple reason thai
in winier owing lu blockages of Ice ill
the stream, the ford is aluiosl ns dan.
gerous to cross as it is during t he peried
of high wnler In the summer, Having called attention In Hie mill ter,
we hope snine steps will be taken In
provide the necessary hridges at once.

As nn dnuhl every reliance can be
placed in the reporl that appeared iu lhe
Vancouver World of lhe 81st of Aug.
relative In an interview held hei ween
n representative of Hint paper and .Mr.
Sbaiighuessy,   Vice-President uf the
Canadian PaciHc Railway, during the
hitlers recent visit In Vuncouver.overy
cause is there for the entertainment of a satisfactory feeling that al
Insl Bnundiiry Creek is drawing to il
the attenlion of those who bin- il.
within their power to hreiik down lhe
isolating barrier that has kept this
rich section of the province in ilu- back
ground for many years pusl. Having
hoped against hope for several years,
and having been disappointed so often,
we are fain to confess that railway
news is generally received wilh u good
deal of skepticism, bul in the face of
events which are gradually working
themselves inlo shape, we musl say
that the doubts entertained tire heing
somewhat dispelled by a more hopeful
feeling, which is engendered by the
conviction llnil before long it. mny he
possible losny that at Inst u railway
is being built, and Bnundiiry Creeks
day bus conic. As with ourselves, so
with llle whole nf lhe people of Ihis
seelion, bul Hint our renders mny
divide with us the crumbs of comfort,
we give lhe following extracts which Immediately after his name is placed
IN the issue of lhe Grand Forks
Minor of the 281 Ii of August, Hn- Hun.
I). W. Iliggins, speaker of lbe provincial legislnl tire takes Mr. Leonard
Norris, government ngenl at. Vernon,
severely lo task for hnving ns colleclor
of voles for tlie East Hiding nf Ynle
District issued tin- following notice:—
"Memorandum -Tho in xl court <>f revision
..-ill be held on Monday tin- -.'ml (Iny nf August
next. Alter revision the ltsl will bo closod and
Buoh closed list will bo llio voters' list fm- the
ensuiiiK year. Application In im.c names

collector sixly days before being ontorod un lhe
list. |Si.(.|'hn]..:w. 11. C.Con,)
I,. NllllltlS,
Collector of Votos for tlio Easl Riding ol Yule
Electoral District."
Tot Ilis Mr. Iliggins takes exception
uud expresses his view-sin lhe following letter.
The statement made by Mr. Norris that
"After revision Ihc li-l will be closed ntnl such
Hal will be the voters' list for the ensiling
ycnr," is Inoorrect The system of registration
in force in lllis province is continual. It is I rue
Hint A court of revision is held in August of
ench ycnr but tin-lists nre never closed. Any
duly i|iinlitl('il person mny send tn the collector
of votos in tho dlstriot In wliieli lie resides un
application to have his mime placed on the
voters list nnd after the n-llllo nf sni.li npplio-lllt
alinllliiivebei'ii posted far a period of two
niiintlis without nn objection hnving been (Hod
the collector is required to insert the nuine on
the voters' list. (See Chap. .'18. H. C. Con.)
There Is no such thing as "elnseil" list under
our system. If Mr. Norris' conslrution was to
prevail ho names could lie added nfter June "J
nf each year und thousands of qualified voters
wntilil be disqualified at the next elect Ion.
[f collectors In other districts have misread
the law similarly there will be no end to the
confusion, disappointment and illegality next
year.
Immediate steps should be taken to property
llistruet. Mr. Norris and all other collectors who
may labor under the same misapprehension.
'  ll. Vi. IIigoinb.
Thnl a wrong Impression has heen
conveyed owing to the colleclor having made use of the word "closed" and
the iiili'cpretiitinu placed upon it, we
are aware, hut that Mr. Norris is partly
correct in list not tie lost sight of, and
tbe more so, especially as we are convinced lhat he would [lit* one of (lie
lasl officials in the govertimcnt'sservice
who would wilfully lead anyone asl ray.
In making use ofllie word "closed" he
no doiihl meant  iliat.it would he lbe
Inst regular revision of the voters  list
tlutt would be held  liefore  the next,
generul election, and by no means meant
tlnil after lhe date of levision    no
one eligible to volt   would be able  to
get bis name placed on the.    list, and
blscuiileutimi is more clearly liiiurne
mil, usit will he noticed llial lhe latter
portion of the memorandum refers to
Hint very subject,.   Under   Ihese  cic-
cuinsiiinie.-, nil hough Mr. Non Is made
nu unfortunate seleclinu of  words  lo
convey his meaning,|it cnn hardly I
said an unmixed evil results, and   lhe
more so is this the case, as il has given
ilie press und certain citizens tin opportunity of discussing the matter, and
thereby enlightening the majority of
lhe  electorate upon a subject    with
whicli everyone should be thoroughly
conversant.   That no room fur dnuhl
may lie left we wuuld say  lhat lhe
qualifications  necessary   to insure a
eilizen the right to exercise the franchise
are: llial he shall bea British subject
of the lull nge of twenty one  years;
that he shall have been a resident of
Ihe Province for one year: that he
shull bnve resided in the   distriet   in
whicli he desires to  vote at least  two
months proceeding the lime of sending
ln his application to he placed on the
voters list, and ; that is all, and if coin-

for years to come an enormous expenditure will lie made bv it in opening
Up new avenues nf transportation lo

inheritance which yet will rival ill

views concerning lbe probability of

nessy observed that the subject was an

to lbe puhlic for purchase on lhe 23rd
of September, at which date lhey will

Mr. Malcolm McCuiagof Rock Creek,
paid a visit In town the past week and
while here engaged Ihc services of Mr.
Kerhy, P. L. S. to survey his prc-emp-
I ion, which is situated nt [lock Creek,
adjoining Ihe Government townsite.
A magnificent drove of about 160
head of beef cattle passed through
town oo Wednesday last hound for
Rossland, These cattle form a part of
the number shipped hy Messrs. Ellis
and Cawston, to the Rosslnnd market.
Mr. G. T. Hodgson's residence which
is being Iniill on the hank .of I he|Kei I le
river here, is gradually Hearing com-
pletion.and will in a day or two he in
the hands of the painters, who will put
on some nnishingtouches.,The building*
is a two storey one, containing about
eighl rooms, and its peculiar style uf
architecture is very pleasing when
viewed from a short distance.
The district has been treated to some
splendid showers of rain during the
past week, which however are somewhat of a mixed blessing, as although
they will do the country good, some
of the farmers, willhardly he inclined
tothinkso when they remember as it
resultof the heavy crops some of the
produce still remains in lhe held,
Mr.Justice McCall of the Supreme
Court of British Coluuiliia has heen ga-
letted to he a commissioner to enquire
into and reportjupon certain complaints
made respecting the administration of
justice, by JudgeSpinks. County Court
Judge for this district and the Kootenay. By Ihose pretty well informed the
the conlrntion is held Ihul lhe charges
conferred [against llie Judge are nol
of an extremely gt'iiviniis character,
nnd Iherefore mayprolialily be shown
to have little foundation in fact,
Messrs Harlan and E. C. Brown
passed lhrough lown <ut Wednesday
I...nnil f.ir Meyers cruek, These two
hardy prospectors hive traversed a
ureal sropenf territory during lhe
p-reseiil-siiiniiler, hav-tlg paid a visit to
the U|''-**r OUnn.ig.ui and Slniswap
died ids. Coniiiii-iiliiig upon their ex*
peri.-ur.--i lhey affirm thnt in all their
travels thoy did not discover a Held
f.ir prospectors to equal the Boundary
creek, and tlioref.ire.for lhe fill lire they
intended to remain with llie old camping ground.
On Monday last the town was honored l.y a visil from Mr. P, Richter of
Kereineos, who for years hud nol been
in this portion of the district, As an
old resident, of the lower Okanagan,
Mr. Ritcher was familiar with the
valley for years liefore {Midway was
thought of, hut he says he had no idea
the place was such an ideal spnl for a
town. The iirigalionsyeleni for the
valley elided his admiration, and he
predicted lhat if judicious use was
made of it, the result would be a veritable garden ofeden.
The ejticstioo is being asked on all
sides, why has work not heen commenced on the recorders office at. Grand
Forks? At present, strange us it may
seem, the Recorder is occupying the
lock-up, having pressed this huilding
into service as a make-shift until the
new office is provided. In his present
quarters the recorder is badly cramped
for room and Iheiefore suffers great
inconvenience,and again il|lsmorethan
slightly infraldig io mix up recorders
and criminals. The ninney having
been appropriated, and the contract
let, people are unable tn understand
why work is not being prosecuted with
dispatch.
Together witli Mr. Hodgson of Greenwood, Dr. Bell Irvlngof Victoria,made
a trip to the wesl fork of Kellle river
recenlly to look at, Messrs, Dale and
Kerr's mineral claims and other properties. Afler visit ing I he claims ;ihe
two former,travellei s parted company,
Mr. Hodgson returning last week to
Greenwood and Dr. Irving proceeding
on to Penticton,and thence|to I he coast.
To reach Penticton and In explore Ihe
country for a wagon road, Dr. Irving
together wilh Mr. Dale who acted as
guide, took 1 he passes leading frnni
Kettle river to the Okanagan, tin. object in view heing to lind out if a
shorter road could not. he built either
from Okanagan Falls or Penticton, to
the claims, than the oue now traveled
which leads lo Hock creek and Midway.
Could this he dune, it would be easier to
ship ore from lhe claims if s ncll was
desired,than carrying it over the round
about route via ltock creek and Camp
McKinney. The result of Dr. living's
explorations has not as yet been made
known, in fact it is possible he bus not
as yet reached Penticton,
Good Ore Being Mined.
C. E. Shaw, P. L. S.,   is surveying
the   Boundary  Falls claim   for  Lhe
Boundary Falls Milling Co.   The claim
is situated on Boundary creek near Ihe
town of ils name, and is proving itself
upon development lo he nu exeepl ion-
ally good properly, as the shaft which
is now down some S3 feet dlcloses ore
for ils full breadth, nn.l sliil several
feel of nre isjlel't Let ween the shaft and
the  foot wall.  Through this ore a
crosscut is now being driven to the
foot ..ull, and  no doubt a few days
work will show the width of llie   vein.
As to quality the  ore is certainly a
shipping one,as it runs something over
ope hundred dollars to lhe ton, tie
concentrates it is said going as high
as$000.   The eharacler of the ore is a
ipiarlz carrying iron pyriles andavery
Hull-galena.   This claim  was   among
the first located in the Boundary creek
district, and has quite a history, as at
one time a three stamp mill  was run
on ore taken from the surface of the
vein, where it was   thoroughly oxy-
dized, and therefore readily yeilded its
value to lliis treatment,  As soon however as a depth was reached at which
oxydation had ceased,  the gold contents intimately associated  wilh  the
iron pyrites, could not be  caught on
the plates, and as no vanners were employed to save  the concentrates the
venture bad to be given up, is   with
the concentrates nearly all of the gold
was lost, the clear quartz not heing
rich.enongh  to   pay.    Given   stamp
treatment and the concentrates saved
there is no reason why some day the
Boundary Falls should not be a payiog
mine.

A contract has been let hy Mr, W.
T. Sinilh of Greenwood for the driving
of a tunnel 70 feet in length on the
Republic claim which is situated near
Boundary Falls, and upon which a
large amount of work has already been
dune in shaft sinking, drifting etc,
Work is steadily progressing on the
Hie, Jacet claim near Vernon, and it is
snid the properly is looking splendid,
in fact every sign is given I hul Captain
May, the owner, has thenecleus of a
valiialile mine iu bis possession, The
ore is a free milling quartz, carrying a
lillle galena and Iron pyrites, and is of
a quality sufficiently high grade to
warrant the erection of machinery for
lis treatment as soon as the property
is sufficiently developed.
The machinery for the Morning
Glory mine near Vernnn will arrive
frum lhe east to-day. It consists of a
thoroughly new and up to date6stamp
mill and vanners, which will he set up
neiii' the claim, and will he run by
steam power, Should the establishment of thisuiacliinery prove asuccess,
a great impel us will he given to mining
in the immediate neighborhood, as
there are a number of good free milling
ledges in lhe district, other than those
on the Morning Glory, and Ihe pro-
prielors will be encouraged to open
ihem up.
The machinery has arrived at the
Old ironsides mine in Greenwood
camp and is now lieing put in place.
II consists of a steam hoist and pump,
and a large boiler of about 50 horse
powei, which has been provided wiln
the idea that hefore long alive hurley
drill compressor plant, will he added to
the outfit, Pending the instillation of
machinery, the work in the shaft has
been stopped, Work however will
be resumed as snon as the machinery
is ready for acl ion. The Old Ironsides
company have decided lo pursue an
active policy in the development of
their property, and the instillation of
iniichitiery giyes an earnest, of sueh.
It will be remembered thut a deal
was made this spring on the old time
and well known Monashee mountain
properly which was owned hy Mr.
Mclntyre and is situated near the head
waters of the Norlh Fork of Kettle
liver. Captain Mnlyneux made the
deal on the claim purchasing it. for
$110,000 of which a small percentage
was paid down. Not having been able
to complete arrangements for the
transfer of the property ill the time
named in the bond, an extention of
time was granted to the 17th
of November, In connection with
I he deal an expert will soon arrive from
England, who will pass upon the property und should bis report lie favorable the bargain will at once lie closed

DESCRIPTION,
On the " D. A." is a vein about 20
Inches .vide, wilh a pny-streak oft to

and 2 per eenl, lend. A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein frntn whieh ore is
lieing taken. On the snme property is
a larger vein (tpiurl/.) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " 0. A, R." has a BO-fool shaft,
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silvet-glance. Tln-lini-sl piecesnfwiresil-
vet-found onBoundaryCreek were taken
front litis shaft. Aveinge assays front
different, places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 nm, silveri also $8.0(1
gold nnd bill nzs. silver and one. the
latest .i-i-linn -SIMIU guld antl liHH-5
tins, silvei- per ton.
On lhe "Big Ledge" is a 10 foot
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein lias lieen opened
lip hy cross-cuts on Ihe sm-face foro()0
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, lieing oue fool wide, carry*
ina considerable coi par pyriles, and
l-nns Inlo Ihe main ]. tlge us a spill', on
which ii tunnel of III fait lias heen
driven. Average assays gave $13 gold
anil 1 1-10 ozs. silver, and $40.35 gold,
17-i ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The"S. E." lies l-etwei'd lhe (I.A. 11.
and I). A„ In the direction of Ihe strike
on llu-(I. A. II, vein. This location hns
been ini.de on a vein of pyt-t hotite.
The "0. B." has two distinct veins-
une 25 feet wide whirl), from its strike
and geiiei-iil/diarncter would seem to
be the same vein as that-on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
heen done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at, present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold front $4.00
to"$170.5H, while a'eonservative sampling l.y Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gave

average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
103 ozs.,"j-oppi-i- 11.1)0 per eenl., or
$10.-11 for all values.
The " Ered I)." was located in De
cenlher, lSDn, more as ground fur a
basis for mining operations fm- the
olher claims than for ils presenl value,
although Ihere Is 'liltle doubt that lhe
large vein on IheO. II, runs lhrough
it. There is a small vein of galena on
Ibis claim.
The ".I, A. 0," has a large Iron-
rapping running lhrough It. front Ihe
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet.
"Ilie ore cat ries a considerable percent
nge of of copper and $10 io gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, hut as yet very little development work has heen done on
Ihem,

OV/ IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The 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.
Y CREEK CITY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes o
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively.    It is   also   the   only   known
nigh  on the line of the new railway from the
Columbia River to Penticton.
Building has already commenced on the new
townsitc, which offers particular inducement for
both business and residence purposes.   There are
practicable railway pass from the east, so will be , 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 CONPANY, LTD.
