I THE MOTHER LODE,
'one of the prominent boun.
dary creek properties.
Accurate anil  Authentic  Description
of the Mine   Its ore Values and
Amount of Work Done
(o   Date.
I'm...inenl among the more important uf the Boundary Creek milling
properties is the Mother End.*, situate
in Deadwood comp, ahout three uiiles
I'ciini Auncondu, Its location dates
back nearly seven years, the claim
hnving been recorded on Muy 2K. 1801,
in tin- names of .Messrs McCormick,
Ingriiu, Thompson, and Gibbs, lis loci.tins, liko othor pioneer prospectors
passed through many vicissitudes, but
despite numerous discouragements
nnd difficulties they held on to the
claim until In .lum* of I80Q, it was
bonded by Col, John Weir, of New
-lurk, for $10,000. Tlie bond wus
taken up at maturity und the property
afterwards passed into the posscssiou
of the Boundary Mines Co., of New
York, a close corporation organized in
New Ynrk l.y Col, Weir, for tho purpose of carrying on general mining
liusiness in British Columhia, This
compnny is represented in the province by Mr, F, Koffer, JI, E,, who resides ui Anaconda.
Since taking hold of tin. property
Col. Weir uml the present owners
havespenl to-dute about $12,(1(1(1, mainly in developinenl wnrk, the outlay on
buildings, etc, having been restricted
In only what wus necessary for the
comfortable housing of the men employed on llie eluiin. The surface
shewing of the Mother Lodo may bo
rightly described us enormous. It is,
perhaps, the most striking in the district, the outcropplngs of tho lurge ore
budy standing oul prominently for
1050 feet along the lull in which it
occiirs iiiiii rising to u height of ncnrly
3(K) feet, The lodo husii strike nprbxi-
lnatoly ^north, 25 degrees east, and it
lies between lime nnd porphyry formations, Its width on the surface,
tiaturaliy is not so well defined as it is
in the tunnel helow, but it appears to
cover :i distance of nearly 200 feet.
The wnrk done by the locators wus
chiefly surface prospecting, of which
they did agreatdeal, Low down the
side nf the bill thoy ran a tunnel
through the lime formation, but at 12
feet they wore in ore, sn the work wns
not continued. On top of the hill a
shaft wus put down 20 feet in the lode,
neai' the pninl of contact with the
lime. Numerous cuts were also made,
uinl bnles sunk, ure shewing in naarly
all nf lliese. lu September, 1800, or
soon after Col. Weir obtained possession, wurk iu a more systematic manner
wns begun, and it bus been continued
almost without interruption up to tho
pic-.'iit time, The sbull wns sunk*,
feet deeper, anda fair quantity nf ore
wus taken mil of It, but as it entered
the lime wall ut 2,i feel it wns decided
tu slop sinking nn.l to put in n crosscut
tunnel, to test the value nf lbe nre
body at a greater depth. Tin* tunnel
wus comma..ceil nt a pninl, 100 feet
ubove the level of the base of the bill,
near the west line uf the cluim and
nboul IMI feet frnni the lower end line.
The hill rises directly above the tunnel
11-0 feet higher, und the highest point
of the ore body farther back is 80 feet
higher still, so thut if a iiiiinel were
run iu ut the lowest practicable levol
along thu ore body, it would give a
maximum depth nf 280 feel. Thodi-
ineusions nf lbe tunnel are six feel six
Inches by live feet. The lirst 12 feel
fern, lbe nitiiiib nf tho tunnel was
driven in .vlilte limestone, The foot-
wall side nf tho ore body wns tlie.. encountered and from this time until the
nther side nf the little was reached 2lu
Feet from the tunnel mouth, llu- wurk
wns continually in un; thai is, the
length nf thocrosscul in tl v Is203
ii't't. Allowing fnr U.e somewhat diagonal cuurse uf ihe first part of the
tunnel, lhe tlistanco across Ihc lode,
measured nl right angles, is 185 feet.
The porphyry encountered nt 215 fact j
is separated frum lhe lnile by gouge
mul Ier. which is perfectly free, nu! being "frozen" tothe hanging wall us e
frequently the case,
The ore found Immediately next t.

ilia mouth nf ilie tunnel, lhe grade

higher values was fniuid nnd ibis ore!
continued fnr u distance nf about 80 ■
feet, or to within 20 feel uf the hanging wall, [''ruin here to the banging
wall   the   ore   was  very  poor.   The
gang...* .if the lode ...utter met with in
tlie tunnel in In niiniii Illl feet is mostly
silicates of inm, lime, alumina and
magnesium, with morn or less crystallized carbonates nf Iiu..*. Tin*.ice to 189
feel il is chiefly oxide of iron, with
some silicates, Fnr the remaining .lis-
innce ii resumes Its former character,
lu the main the nre is nf such if nature
us to lit* self fluxing, ur would require
lhe iiildil inn uf bul. lillle flux for smelting.
Allhnugli n.il, milch of lhe ore found
III   this  tunnel   wuuld  pay   to  smelt
directly without preliminary treatment, still the Improvement over the
surface showings wns so marked that
i il wns decided tn sink a winze 100 feet,
...id ihen crosscut again. This work
was sunn begun, but wnter came in so
freely us lo make sinking a slow and
very expensive task. However, lho
100 fool level wns reached and crosscut I ing was Ihen begun. The Hrst
crosscut was run towards the footwall
and It was continued 12 feet, or until
;. stratum of poor ore was encountered,
(It should be mentioned that the
wlnue was begun 162 feel in fro... lhe
 ulh ofllie tunnel, or six feet inside
the line of good ore mentioned above
as occurring iu the tunnel nt 140 feet.)
The men., nssay values of the Hrst six
feet of the ore In the crosscut, taking
all ruck gnnd und hud, gave $18.50 per
ton, Of the first nine f.-et it, was $15,50
per ton, nn.l of lhe whole twelve feet
il was $12 per ton. Assnrted ore, that
is ore wil b I be wnslc taken out, assayed
on nu average $80 per ton for the 12
feet, The hesl nre run $15 per Inn, and
the copper values in il were ..bout
twice lbe gold values. Tbe crosscut
was next run I nwardsl he bunging wall,
Fm- IIS fed ilu* mean value nf the nre,
gnnd nnd hnd, nbliiincd here was $8,50
per ton. With waste taken out il.
averaged $12 lo $13 per Ion, while
more carefully sorted ore run nearly
$17 per tun. The nre was fairly nnl-
fiirin here, althnugh then* were live or
six feet uf il in nne place whieh,
roughly sorted, assayed $1(1 to $17
per tun. Al the end nf lhe 38 feet a
"hurse" nf hnrrcn mat was found running diagonally tluougb the. ore burly
nt ncnrly linln angles in Iln* banging
wall) TMs "horse" was ahout four
feet. In thickness, and, mvingto its inclined position, the censsc... was in it
for some 12 or IB feet, the ore tapering

EDITORIAL NOTES.
As an attempt may be mnde at the
coining sitting of the Provincial legislature to amend the Mineral Acl, In
conform (with the expressed opinions
of Mr. Carlyle, that a prospector should
be required to curry out an assess...enl
before being allowed to record a mineral claim, we would like lu hear the
views of suine off be milling population
of this distriet upun the subject, and
ifour renders will favor us with the
same, we will gladly give place to then
in our columns. It. is a very Inportant
question and therefore deserving uf
discussion,
we NOTE a growing desire among
a poitioo of the agricultural population of the province toli.iveuPr.ivinoi.il
and International Exhibition held at
New Westminster this year, For our
part we feel that such .... exhibition
would bea splendid advertisement fur
British Columbia, and we would say
that if such can beheld, a line display
of tin mineral resources of thu country
should form one of the principal features in connection with such an exhibition. We would also suggest thul
the mineral exhibit which would be
collected for the occasion, might form
tlle nucleus nf a grand display, to l.e
forwarded to tbe Paris Exhibition, if
held, iu 11)00. Tn Ibis cud the Government shuuld lend a ready and cheerful
assistance.
 •	
It is with regret we learn that Mr.
W. A. Carlyle has resigned the position
he so ably Hlled as Provincial .Mineralogist foi' the past two years. 11, is
said the step hns been taken sn that
he may occupy a position on the advisory board of the Brilish American
Corporation. Il is to he hoped ihnt
Mr. Carlyle's resignation will not
Intel fere with the issue uf the several
bulletins, which must he under the
course of compilation, and lhe more so
with reference tn Il.e une which will
treat of the ..lining resources of the
southern portion of Yale, and for which
the public have been patiently waiting
for some time past. Much as we regret that lbe province has lost Mr.
Carlyle's services in the capacity uf
Provincial Mineralogist, there is some
satisfaction to he derived from lhe
knowledge that be will remain in
British Columbia, nnd will therefore
no doubt he nhle tn du niuch fur the
country uf which lie su recently became
a resident.
—+—
The action lake., l.y the people of
Boundary Creek in turning dnwn the
Heinze proposition oven before they
were made aware uf the fuel that he
had disposed of his interests lo the C.
P, R,, has been justiftod by recent
events. Heinze being disposed of,, the
railway issue is left between Air. Corbin and the 0, P. ti., and as the people
of this district have warmly embraced
Mr. Cochin's ennse, it is safe to say
that if the Dominion Government will
only attend to the wishes of the people,
there will he no ueeessily nf their ever
again entertaining the idea of granting
n cash subsidy tunny corporation desirous, .f furnishing railwny facilities
to this district. The same applies to
the Provincial Government, nml therefore our legislators should see in i:,,
that everything be dono lo facilitate n
charter being granted Mr. Corbin, nnd
thereby if pussilile save to tlie people
the enormous land gnu.I, offered to Mr.
Heinze, ur lbe cash bonus lhey were
empowered tu grunt in lieu thereof.
Let the Dominion Govornwent bul
grant a chai'tortu Mr. Corbin and the
railway question as It affects the Boundary Oreek district would b" Immediately solved, providing of course Il.e
obligation is imposed upon him. for tho
Immediate construction of the railway
for which a charter is sought,
jniiriniienl wns made mi tho 20th ultimo, was again rend, and the financial
statement wus submitted together
wltll the auditors repurl, tliere nu.
The auditor reported everything correct und in order. The adoption of
the reports and statement of accounts
was again moved by the president, Mr.
G. Arthur Itenilell, and was declared
carried upun lhe voices, bul, Mr. I). A..
Holbrook demanded a poll. To avoid
tlie useless waste of time and trouble
that the Inking uf a poll would Involve,
Mr. llnllhrook's voting power being
more than three times greater than
that of all the remaining shareholders
combined, the chairman, with tho approval of tho meeting, declared the
million for adoption lost on a pull uf
voles. He then vacated the clinic and
Mr. Holbrook was appointed chairman,
It was then moved by Mr. Holbrook
and seconded by Mr, T. E. Davis that
the following shareholders be directors
for the ensuing twelve months! Messrs
I). A. Holbrook, I). W. Holbrook, A.
(.'. McKeuzie, .1. W. Nelson, and C, A.
E. Sliuw, The vote taken un this motion and on another afterwards submitted liy Messrs Holbrook and Davis
—afflnqing approval of the purchase
last year uf the McDonnell ranch property and disapproval nf the lust board
of directors in re-transferring it tu Mr.
McDonnell, nn.l authorising the new
board of directors to protect the company in the nuttier—was similar I...
that on the question nf the adoption nf
the repurl, viz. there wns a large majority against Mr. Holbrook on the

For an International Exhibition.
At.1 meeting of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association held at New Westinin-
ter on the 22nd of last month, the following resolution was moved by Messrs
Hutcherson and Earle, and adopted
unanimously! "That this society
pledge itself to do all things possible to
make the provincial show to be held at
New Westminster the coming fall an
unprecedented success and to rectim
mend that the Provincial Government
be requested to increase the present
grant from $1,001) to $5,000 with .1
view to carrying out the idea of an International Fruit Fair in connection
with the show." It was furthor suggested thnt such shews lie held every
few years and that all the agricultural
societies of the province assist the
Royal Apiicultural and Industrial Sneiety of New Westminster to further
the plans of this Provincial and International Exhibition,
. H-l	
Cascade City Water Power.
Mr. John A. Coryell, Civil Engineer
of Midway has just returned from
Cascade Cily, nt which point he has
been engaged in making extensive
surveys, in connection with the proposed tftillzation of the enormous water
power of the Kettle river at the point
close to Cascade City, known as Cascade falls,
Quite lately the Cascade Devel >
nienl Cninpnnv disposed nf their rights
in lhe water puwer lu an English syn
dicnte, which is represented in this
prnvii.ee l.y Mr. C. K. Mdl.0ur.1e of
Nelson, B. C, and for this syndicate of
capitalists the work bus lieen dune.
An idea of the vnlue of Ihe right to
utilize this puwer cnn unly be appreciated by those familiar with the disj
trict, and are therefore able lo conceive to what an extent as the cnuntry
develops, it will be in demand.
Tu those who cannot appreciate the
pussiliiliti'sof its full.re usefulness, a
few details ...ay nevertheless be of
interest, and in this respect it may l.e
snidthatfroni the height of wnter to
the point at which machinery wuuld
probably be set,represe..iingu distance
of some 2500 ft. no less than 120 feet of a
fall Is attained fnr a volume nf wnter
which is estimated to develop from
1(1,000 to 20,0110 horse power.
To gain this great amount of fall, a
dam or dams will have to he set at the
bead of the canyon, nndby such, would
I he wnter be raised so us to occasion its
flow tbrough;the recess prepared foi its
conveyance to this lower level, viz., by
pipes, ilu.nes und ditches cut iulu the
suli.l ruck.
The dnss of machinery to be used to
produce the power has perhaps not as
yet been decided upon, but the power
to he produced through the agency of
the a.iter will be electricity, nnd for
this will bo found a use, in the development of niines, the operation of tramways, the liglil ing of luwns, and a
multitude of other forms in which
this agent is now employed.
The us.* of the power will not I..* confined In the Immediate neighbourhood
in whicli it is prodn 1, for it is under.
stood it will be convoyed wil bin 11
radius of many miles of Cascade City,
iu fact it may be transmitted tu the
Boundary creek camps, und towns in
their vicinity.
Under these circumstances, what
possibilities are there nut offered for
the con.puny to do a prnlllul.le business, and how great, tun wuuld the
influence be, ci1 till a cheap puwer l.e
offered and placed within tlie reach of
the many who in the near future will
require just such an agent. For the
present it must be acknowledged the
demand for this power, even if it were
furnished,wool.I nut l)e|grcat, but wilh
the advent of railways, smelters, etc.,
all this will change, nnd then it is to l.e
hoped the conipiiny now holding the
franchise, will loose no time in harnessing the power wbich is now flowing in
natures channels, und which up lo the

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 In
12 inches; from this 8,0511 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.16 gold per I nn, silver 74 7-10 nzs.,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein frnni which ore is
being taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The "G. A. K." has a 30-fool shaft
sunk nn a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized wilh nn intimate mixture uf iron
and copper pyriles, galena, blende and
silverglance, Thefinestplecesofwires.il-
verfnund onBoundaryOreek were taken
frinn this shaft. Average assays frum
different plnces across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, fit) ozs. silver; also $8,00
g.ild and lull nzs. silver nn.l one, the
latest return—$15,05 gnld and 1064*5
- ozs. silver per tun.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized wiih iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
up by cross-cuts nn the surface f.ir .ilHI
feel, A narrower vein has been
opened up, being one fu.it wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs intu the main ledge ns a spur, mi
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gnld
nn.l 1 1-10 ozs. silver, and $111,115 gnld"
171 ozs. silver, 2 por eent. cupper.
The "S, F." lies l.etweeil the (1. A. li.
and D.A,,in I he direct inn .if the strike
nn the G. A. R. vein. This location lias
.* 1 nil. no a vain nf pyrrhnti te.
The "O. ti." has two distinct veins I
une 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem to
be the same vein as that un the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
lieen dune to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values iu gold frnni $4,00
lu $170.53,',while a 'conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E, gnye
$20.00 ill gold.
Onthe"S. II. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyriles,
nn which wnrk is nnw being done, An
average assay gave, gnld $1.50, silver
1(1} ozs., copper 11.IK) per cent,, or
$40,44 for all values.
The "Fred II." was located in De
cen.lier, 1805, more ns ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
other cliiiins than for its present, value,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein un the O. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The "*T. A, 0." hns a large irou-
capping running through it frnni tlie
Anaeonda, nf a depth of a few feet.
The ure carries a considerahle percent
nge of of copper an.l $10 in gold.
The remaining six clalmsare all good
prospects, bul ns yel very lillle development work has been dune on
them,
