Smelters.
The Rossland Miner of Ihelllh insl.,
touching upon the Bubjeci of the possibility of a smelter being erected at
Grand Forks says :
"Grand Forks has commenced lo
experience the lot that fulls to all
towns of great piomise. The subsidy
fiend has Invaded the community and
is asking for all that there is in sight.
The bonus desired in llie present case
is a valuable concession of ground for
ii smelter site and certain important
water right* on Kettle river, near lhe
town. The usual mysterious syndicate
with untold millions tn Invest is behind
Ihe scheme,
"The future nf Grand Furks is Inn
secure to call fur i In* snet idee uf valuable property for such purposes. Besides, it is lime enough fui Grand
Forks in induce smeller men who mean
Inisiuess tu establish works there when
fuel and other necessary nialeiial for
the I real inenl. nf ures cnn lie economically obtained, In their delllwrallons
of the inatterof l he erection of a smeller
it would be well fnr Ibe uood people uf
(liiind Furks in hear iu iniiul lliis Important fuel : If the Canadian Pacific
railway ever controls tin- carrying
trade nf ilu- Bnundiiry country, Ihal
inad uill doits uimiisi in prevent lbe
operation of smelters there as it has
already done in Kootenay, All the
Big Cui'pnriillun cares about Is the
lunge*! haul pussilile un llu* ure, and
lhe unfortunate mine owner bus to
pay fm- ii."
Analyzed, llle utterances nf ihe
Miner will he found In In* very misleading und tineai'ii wilh self Interest.
Tlie parties who have "invaded" llie
Grand   Forks district  are certainly
seeking a concession In Ihe sha| f u
smelter site, uud certain waler rights,
hut to considet that these are extremely valiialile requires a certain
stretch of the Imagination,   As far as
tin* concession of gi ml is concerned
the estimate would nut he wide uf tin*
mark if it was put al $5IKI an acre, and
no doubt 5 or 10 acres would he sufficient fur all purposes, It is "tsy lo
be seen what lhat ivould amount to.
The water right, wuuld he a more valuable concession, but, in this again, nn
doubt if the peuple uf Grand Furks
desire a smeller, the matter can be
adjusted so thai all parties concerned
-an allium all the water lhey may need
fur years to come, without anyone
being placed ai a disadvantage.
Much us the Miner shews its hand in
ils opening remarks, ll may Ih* said
only to disclose ll llmroiighly when it
refers lo IheO, P. R. and the treatment
that that corporation will meet out to
tiie people of Boundary ('reek, shuuld
they ever build a line nf railway
Ibriiiili lhe district, for It says lliiil Ibe
t'. I1. II, wnnlil certainly discourage
lhe holding of smelters here for the
sake of hauling the ore of lhe mines
long distances,
Wilh regal d In this nsperl nf lhe
question wn would like lo know, (and
perhaps tin Miner may he able lo Inform us), what would In* the difference
iu the treatment, shuuld Ihe pro-
millers uf I he Cultluihln and Western
enter this territory In the exclusion of
ihe I'. P. It. Would the erection nl
smelters he encouraged'; Or would we
lie told that at a certain point on the
Columbia river only could Ihe ores of
the districl. be profitably treated.
Which would it Ihi?
A New Regulation.
Tin* Brilish Coluuiliia Ga'.ette of tlle
lib inst,, contains the following order
sancl iiineil by I be Lieutenant-Governor
ill Council providing for lhe repeal of
certain sections of the Placer Mining
and Mineral Acts of (181)1), (181)5) and
(1806) touching the question of forfeiture nf properly by lapse of free
miners certificate, and substituting
therefor the following regulation ;—
"Any person or joint stock coinpaiiy,
lieing llu* holder nf any mining pro-
party, whn may apply for relief u*j*uinst

sueh properly by reason of his or ils
omission to obtain a new tree miner's

nf such omission, and full particulars
of tin* property affected, together with
lbe declaiiitinn uf the Gold CnmuiiS*
sinner or Mining Recurder for the
division or divisions iu which such property is silu-ited, to the effect that, nn
records adverse to the applicant's

biin lliiring lhe time in nhlcll the said
applicant was not iu possession of a

For Deer Killing.
About, twelve llionlhs agn Ihe fact
was noled in this paper that, American
Indians were following tin* practice of
annually coming across the line inlo
snme portions of Ihis district, and
wantonly slaughtering deer. Tins
slaughter was tint only carried nn fur
Hn* purpose of obtaining a supply uf
fund, but for number and less worthy
purpose viz., lu ulil uin the hides nf the
animals, These Indians came lung
distances fnr the purpose of engaging
lu the hunt., and su asliile were they
that il was with difficulty their presence in tin- province was discovered.
Deer carcases stripped nf their
hides, and lefl In rut nu the h-ll sides,
■iway hack in tin- mountains, however,
speak v-ilii>■■— ami this Intelligence
having been given in tin* local police,
lhey determined In keep a sharp look
out lin-fall and if pussilile intercept
llu* marauders. Their vigilance was a
few days agn rewarded, Wind having
been received tliat a big band nf Indians
wus   rauqi'il   un   Meyers creek,   just
iicruss the line. Officer Onrdoin nf
Midway and a trusty scout, were de.
tailed tu patrol ihe disirici around
Buck Creek. Asa result un Ihe lltlh
IInstant two Indians answering the
j names of Turn Winn and Paul were
I scooped in. These uu the 15ih were
hroiighl before Justices of the Pence
Norris and Hind charged wiih killing
game without a licence, being nonresidents nf the province) with ex-
posing deer for sale without the head
being nu as required bv provincial
stiilule; and iu llu- case nf Tout Wuin
of carrying a concealed weapon. For
each nf these offences HOdays' imprisonment was Inflicted, the Boulences tn
nin concurrently, and Ihe magistrates
through the Interpreter alsu warned
I the culprits lhat. their le-appraranee
liefore the court wnuld he followed hy
,i more severe punishment. Till-: ADVANCE.

the Osoynus division, are published I'm

An estimate recenlly made, shows
that at present, mining operations are
being carried oo nn mote than a dozen
different properties situated in what
may be termed the Boundary Creek
basin. This nf course includes properties under bond, Asa result Ihc disirici enjoys a payroll nf ahuul 15(1 men,
and as these teceive nn an average say
$.1 per day it will be seen Unit frnni
$10,000 In $15,000 per month is lieing
spent on development in wages alone.
These figures to Borne will nn dnulii
appear small, but when it is considered
Unit Ihe whole of this money is lieing
expended on development, and is being
sunk in the ground, a different aspect
of the case is presented. Given shipping facilities and smellers within
reach, snuie nf tiie properties, Individually, could In time employ tin-
whole force mentioned above, Inn a*
these adjuncts to active mining operations are nol nuw in existence, ii i
pleasing to note Unit without Ihem so
much is being dune In prove the vasl

the good wurk proceed fur without

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D. A." is a vein aliout 20
Inches wide, with n pay-streak of 1 to
12 Inches; from this 8,053 lbs. of ore
wns shipped to the smelter, giving
$1011.15 gold pur ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein from which ore is
bring taken. On tlie snine proporty is
a larger vein (qtiartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. 11." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heaylly mineralized wilh an intimate mixture of Iron
anil copper pyrites, galena, blende ami
silvi-i-glanc-i*. The finest piecesof wiresil-
verfoiind onBoundaryCreek were taken
fnnn lllis shaft. Aveinge assays from
different places across the vein gave
.$8.00 gold, 50 ozs. silvers also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver anil one, the
latest retiii-n-$15.05 gold and 1IKI4-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On llie "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized with Iron
pyrites. This vein bus been opened
up hy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has lieen
opened up, being one foot wide, currying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge asasptir, on
whicli a tunnel nf 40 feet bus been
driven. Average assays gave $1)3 gold
anil 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40,36 gold'
17J ozs. silver, 2 pet- cent, copper.
The "S. F." lies l.clvvreil the (I. A, li.
and I). A., in thu direction nf theslrike
on lhe (i. A, Ii. vein. Tins location bus
been made on a vein of pyrrholite.
The " 0. B." has two distinct veins I
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
anil general character would seem lo
be llu* same vein asjjthat on the Big
Ledge, all hough sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at lU-esent a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from j$4.00
to $170.53, while a conservative sampling liy Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E, guye
$20.00 in gold.
On Ihe "8. II. B." nre two converging veins of clipper und iron pyrites,
on which work is now being dune. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
KIJ.'jizs., cupper 11.00 per cent., or
$10,11 fur all values.
Tbe "Fred D." was located" In De
centime, 1805,! more ns ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
olher claims than for its present value,
although I herivis lillle doubt that, the
large vein on; IheO. B. runs]through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
I Ills claim.
The "J. A. C." has a large Iron-
rapping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet.
Tin* ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper und $10 ill gold.
The remaining six claims are all gond
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, 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 GREEK CITY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes of
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
ancl 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
