Mr. Carlyle, Provincial ..liiicriilogisl,
responding!.! the I.mat: "The milling
rdsuurces of our province", at a ban*
qttet given in Rosslaud a few dhysngo,
referred lo the rapid Increiute
mineral oulptil, and drew theatlenliuii

Kor 181)7 the rapid increase will la-

I know to be verv close lo the actual

West Kootenay alone lies iteitrly
reached $4,000,000 for the Hrst half of
this year, or nearly eqnaltti tha uutpiil
for thewhole year of 18110. Thus everything points lo Ihe fact thai Ihis year
the lode mines of British Coluuiliia will
show a gratify iiig iucreuse. Continuing Mr. Carlyle spoke of Hosslund's
outlook as follows;—
"During I he pas! few days I have
had the pleasure of revisiting some of
the lending mines of this camp, nnd Undecided improvement and very marked
advance made during lliu pasl year Is
most apparent, not only in the amoiiiil
of work done, but in the disclosure of
new and large bodies of pay ore.
Tiie progress made litis certainly
equaled (he expectations of those best.
qualified to judge, for in those ptoper-
lics iii which systematic development
work has been prosecuted, in every
mine I have yel seen, the resull s  have
been most encouraging antl confirmatory of the judgement and faith lieid
by their on,let's, ll is line lhat. nuine
C.lallllS have since iippill'i-lllly.falleli by
the way-side, Kill I e probably lo be for-
gotten, others to await ample t-nplliil
and experienced management, lacking
which succees is always must doubtful.
It was nol lo Unexpected Ihal lhe
many claims begun a year ago could
til he successful, e'peelally when the
money has not heen in ihe ireusury
to curry on prospecting in n bold und
fearless milliner. Because two of our
hest mines uncovorcd their nr*** chutes,
afler doing riniipiiiiilivelv lillle work,
il. was loo iniich to hope llnil a shallow
shull and a little drifting on iniiny of
the other locations would make mines
and inilliiinioi'-a, as it were, wholesale.
"The production of the Rossland
mines has grown rapidly. It was iJ7.'i.-

Le Roi Dividends.
In making mention of Le Roi dividends the Spokesman Rev-low gives
vent to the pli hy remark that one more
dividend of «2r>|o(XI will bring iheLe
Hoi's prollts loa round half million
dollars, equivalent to (inn dollar upon
each "hate of the capital stock. Two
years ago It required active work by
brokers to dispose of 16,000 shares of
l.hisaloek nl IBcents. But the Le Roi
is one mine in n thousand, and picking
Le Roi slock ill embryo is pretty illll (ill

The B.C. Qone.
The let-ins and cumin ions relative to
lhe disposal of the ti. C. clahn In Summit camp, have not as yet li eu given
to the public, but, it Is known that the
property hasfoundiipiospectiveowner
hs a few days ago, some kind of deal
was put through by Kehoe Brothers
with a Mr. J. B. Tin tie, nrepresentitlve
of u wealthy syndicate whicli is securing property on bolh sides nf tlle line.
Thai a dual bus been Hindi' on lllis properly so soon nfterils discovery speaks
volumes as lolls merit, and bears out
lhe contention of mining liii-n familiar
with the Boundary creek district and
the good things contained therein,
that, lhe B. C„ is undoiihtly one of the
I'hoiepM. Ihlligs ever discovered in the
counlry, as lbe ledge is of immense,
size, well defined helween good walls,
and of if grade of copper value Ihnt
leaves nothing lo lie desired by those
who take hold of property in ils prospective stage,
 *.-•-,	
Liberal Enough.
Many have held thai tlie reason that
the Le Koi people were contemplating
theereclion of their smeller on the
other side of the line, was Unit the
Dominion Government, intended to impose a duty on the iiiiportion of smelling machinery, A duty imposed upon
the import ion of a large smell iitgplant
of course would amotinl to quite a stun
of money, and would militate against
its erection on this side of the line.
It was nn doubt with Ihe object °'
seeing what, could lie done with the
nonunion Government in this matter
that Mr. Guorge Turner, the President
of the Le Roi company, weni to Ol*
tnwa the other day, and I he result of
his mission can be gleaned in a telegram which he forwarded In the hoard
of directors in Spokanc,and which read
as follows:—"The new Canadian law
admits free coke, ores of all kinds
and all kinds of smelting tiiaclilnerv,"
—Gkorc.e Turner. It, will Iherefore
be seen that the Dominion Government,
is placing no stumbling block In the
way of those who an* endeavoring to
hnild up the smelling business in this
province, as besides udiiiilling machinery free lhey are willing to allow
the import ul ion llf 0[e, also fuel, without duly,

Electric Power,
The transmission nf electric power is
a matter which is attracting much intention the world over, Iheiefore the
experiment soon to be tried in the
Kootenay, in which it is Intended to
transmit power over a distance ut some
35 miles, will he watched wilh unusual
interesl. The company to try this experiment isone headed by Sir Charles
Ross, and they have commenced the
erection of a plant on (the Kootenay
river, from which plant, it is intended
to convey eleclricly In lie used ill the
mines al Rossland, which are distant
from the source of supply of the power
the number of miles ubove mentioned,
When it is taken into consideration
that from the Niagara plant, power is
only transmitted in Buffalo, a distance
(if 26 miles, it will he easy to realize
the boldness of the new company
which proposes In curry mil un experiment, which should il be successful,
would be iinrivalb'd lo date,

The Stemwinder.
Upon good authority we 'ire advised
lhat. the most extensive developinenl
of any properly in tin- Boundary creek
districl will he carried out Ihis column
-vititer, ns il. has been decided hy Messrs. I'.-irrrl anil Midgeon, Ihu smeltut
men of llulle, lo install a large plain
upon their Sleiiiwiiider clnliulii Greenwood I'lllltp, and prospect llie properly
loa depth of 500 feet, Quito u goodly
annum! of money bus heen spent and
onuugh woek done already on lbe
Sleiiiwiiider to warrant lhe exlanslvu
work outlined herein, us the shaft
which wns put down last winter to n
depth of uiiuul Illll leel diselosed an cx-
Ircniely valuable hod)' of ore, which
those who iircui'ipiaiiilt'il withiliccluim
say, is soinelli feet wide, and averages
nlioul $10 per toil, Tlle caeryiiig into
execution this extensive dnvelopinenl
upon the Stemwinder, will do much to
itidiiei'oihers to follow the example sel,
iiiiiii f a few more companies will only
determine upon an equally systematic
exploration of Iheir claims, there
would soon he very liltle necessity lo
poinl out llnil railway communication
would be furnished Hn- district us a
consequence. Already there nre pro-
perlies in Boundary Creek capable of
furnishing a lew hundred tons of ore
a month, if called upon to do so, and
if development could he applied lo
other claims on a scale equal to Hint
proposed I'm- the Stemwinder, the
hundreds mighi soon he changed to
thousands.
MINING    NOTES.
Ore is being hauled lo Penlicton for
shipment to Taromu over the 0. P. R.,
from the Wonderful group of claims
which are situated ill Washington
territory some few miles south of the
boundary Hue. It is understood that
returns from a car load lot of this ore
recently shipped netted about $200 per
ton.
Work has heen resinned on the
Washington and Lone Star properties.
which lie smith of Central camp, just
across lbe boundary line on thu Ool-
ville reservation. The inflow of surface water caused a cessation of work
in lhe early spring, but now this has
ceased development work will he vigorously carried on,
A company operating on Meyers
creek has imported iVXHl ore sucks.
This looks like husincss und as llle ore
Is reputed lo curry a high gold value,
a shipment from tins locality would do
much to draw attention to the camp,
which is becoming of greater iniporlance, as developnii'til on its several
properties progresses.
A sleain lioisl anil steam pump is on
ils way from llle ensl, for the Minne.
halia at Camp McKinney. As soon as
the machinery arrives and is set ill
place, Ihis promising proposition wil'
be attacked wilh renewed vigor, und
developinenl being carried on under
mine favorable conditions tin* result
should be correspondingly favorable.
Work on the (Sunset claim in Dead-
wood camp is progressing in a very
satisfactory inaniier,lhctiiiini.lnovv being in aboul lot) feet, ahout. two-thirds
the distance it is expected it will hive to
lie run to tap the ore body, Although

that Irom indications iu the face of the
tunnel at the presenl lime that an ore
body is being approached, as a considerable amount of quartz ia making
its appearance, and the country rock is
becoming freely impregnated with fine
sulphurels of copper and iron.

what lillle has been done In stripping

are extremely well pleased, uud lire

It was reported a short time ago
that a deal had been made hetween
Mr. Woodhouse representing an English syndicate; and Mr. Bi.-lenlierg,

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A." is a vein ahout 20
inches wide.'with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,053 lhs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.15 gold per Ion, silver 717-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent, lead. A tunnel is heing
driven on this vein from whieh ore is
lieing taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
nnd pyrites.
The " G. A. R." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk oo a 2-font vein, heavily mineralized wilh tin intimate mixture of iron
nnd copper pyrites, galena, hlende and
silverglnnce. Tlionneslpieccsofwiresil-
verfound niiBoimdiiryOreek were taken
from this shaft. Aveiage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, SO out. silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
hit eat ;ret urn—$15.05 gold and 1IK3 4-5
ozs. silvei-per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized with Iron
pyrites. This vein has heen opened
up hy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A inn-rower vein has heen
opened up, heing one foot wide, carry-
iii|i considertihle copper pyriles. and
runs into the main ledge as n spur, on
which iv tunnel of 40 feet has heen
driven. Average assays gave $311 gold
'and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40.35 gold,
17J ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "O. B." has two distinct veins I
one 25 feet>ide| which, from its strike
and geoeral character would seem to
he 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 feel. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to*$170,63, while a^eonservative sampling hy Mr. 8. S. Fowler, M, E. gave
$20.00 in gold.
On'the " S.'H. B." are two converging veins of copper iind'iron [pyrites,
oo which work is now lining done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.60, silver
10J ozs,, copper 11,00 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
The "S. F." lies letweed the G. A, R.
and D. A., in the direction of Ihc strike
on the G. A. R. vein. This location has
heen made on a vein of pyi-i-hotite,
The "Fred I)."was located in De
cemher, 1895, more as ground for a
hasis for mining operations for lhe
olher claims Ihnn for its present value,
although Ihere is little dnuht that the
large vein on IheO. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
lliis claim.
Tlle "J. A. C," hns a large iron-
capping running lhrough It from the
Anaeonda, at a depth of a few feet,
llie ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.

This company is registered under the
Companies Act, 1890, and amending
acts, in the office of the Registrar in
Victoria, B. C, for 1,500,000 shares at
$1.00, non- assessable, of which a
portion of the Treasury stocn. is now
offered at 10 cents a share on application to the company.
The remaining sixclainisareall good
prospects, hut ns yet very little development work has heen (lone on
them.

NOW 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 m ining, 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.
BOUNDARY CREEK CITY.
I
TS 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
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
BOUNDARY CREEK MINING AND MILLING CONPANY, LTD.
GREENWOOD  CITY, B. C.
