the vicinity of llu. cook now
known as Twin ..reek. The earliest location In Skylark ou.up was ihi*
Skylark,ami among those that quickly
followed it wus the Lusi Chance. The
mime has i's disadvantages in this
respect, that to-day ihere are several
mineral claims—at least, three within a
radius of font* or five uiiles of Greenwood—hearing Ihis niiniii. This pur-

of the Boundary Creok Mining company, a Spokane organization nf which
Mr. Sul. 11. Mayer is president, Mr.
Bosenhaupt, secretary, and Mr, Dan
L, Weaver, treasurer, Its attorney In
British Columhia is Mr, Louis I, Os

was not iisct'1't..i.u'd.    As  the rock
passed lhrough wus very freely copper
stained It was concluded I hat I he foot-
wall might still be abend,    The existence of lhe pay streak,  referred to
jusl now. appearing  lu  warrant permanent 'development work, prospecting operations were discontinued here
and more systematic   and extensive
explointory work wus tillered upon,
The dip ol ilu* lnile being towards Ihe
easl, a site for a main working shaft
was chosen nl n point 400 feet, east of
the incline shnfl at aboul lOfeet higher
elevation;   The work nf sinking this
shaft wns sia. led lasl September, and
dnwn In (11 feet a hand windless waa
used, Iiiii. progress necessarily becoming slower as  tlle deplh  Increased,
sinking was suspended fur a month or
so, and lhe men were pul on to erect
a huilding large enough to serve as a
shaft house and blacksmith's shop and
..8 well  to  house  the Com.nonsense
horse whim which it   wus decided to
suhslilutc for bund puwer for hoisting
purposes,   This building Is 42 feet by
80 feet, with 12 foot, walls, and roof
high enough Ui cover the gallows frame
erected over the shaft..   Sinking was
resumed aliout theheginiilngof December, and bus sine* been in continuous
progress, working two 10-hour shifts.
The presenl deplh is n lillle uver 00
feet, but it Is not expected that Ihe
ledge will come inli. the shaft until lhe
170-foot level —u tewfeet more or less,
according  as it maintains a regular
dip   nr otherwise—has been touched.
The nuturo of the formation, and the
favorable Indications met within the
prospect winkings already described,
together Induce tin* expectation that
nt greater depth the vein will make
intu a body of pay ure big enough lo
yield very remunerative returns,
The class nf work being done in the
main sl.afl of lhe Last Clin.ice calls
for commendation, for although there
are several other shafts iu the district
sunk and timbered iu a thoroughly
workmanlike iminii.-r, il.ev are not the
rule. This shaft is vert iinl, 4 feet by
8 feel, fl inches in .he clear, and divided
into two 4-foot I'liiiipiiriinenls, It Is
timbered all the wav down, substantially und well, .mil i» certainly work
those who have executed it may well
luke pride in. By iiiiii bye, when the
mining Industry shull have become
well-established in the Boundary Creek
district, and all such wnrk be subject
in government official inspection, good
timbering will be taken as a matter of
course, but Hi Ihis go as-yuu-please

MUNICIPAL MUDDLE,
The municipal muddle at Grand
Forks is deserving attention, us it no
doubt represents a unique slate of
affairs, brought about by tlle must
flagrant abuse of legislation.
To understand to what extent and
how thoroughly Inconsistent a piece of
business was the incorporation l.y
special act of the town of Grand Forks
it ts only necessary to casually review
the state of municipal affairs as they
stand to-day and Ire set forth in the
reply received from the Deputy Attorney Geueral, In answer t.o questions
put to him as to the possible legality
of the recent elections held there.
The Deputy Attorney General in
his reply Hiiys:—
"The position of the city appears to
be as follows;
Having heen Incorporated hy Letters
Patent issued under the provisions of
tlle Special Act, viz; the speedy Incorporation of Towns Act, 1807, an election for members of the council was
held on the 8th day of May, 181)7, and
the mayor and aldermen were elected.
The correspondence before the de
partmt'iit does not expressly state
whether the council then elected were
duly vualifled but at any rate they
have acted until the present date.
. The first point for consideration
therefore is whether they do not require legislation to validate their acts.
In accordance with law this council
should have been replaced by another
to be elected on Thursday the 13th of
January and an election was held the
validity of which is now under con-
, sideration. Against the validity of
the same a number of objections are
urged;
1. The municipality failed to comply with tlle following clauses of the
Municipal Elections Act, 181X1, viz; 17(a),
17 (c), and 17 (.1), viz; Place for nominations, ditto for polls, and deputy returning officers.
2. The council appointed their city
clerkasreturnlngofHcerbutsuc.il officer
was not sworn iu; us is presumably
called for by the Municipal Clauses Acl.
3. The voters list was not certified
as corrected by the mayor as provided
in sectiun 8 nf the Municipal Elections
Act and   presumably   Ihe returning
. officer was not furnished with a list nf
voters is provided by section 17.
4. Objection is taken to tbe qualification of one of the aldermen elected on
Ihe gi nun.I that Ilis properly does not
lie entirely in the ward for which he is
elected. I see nothing in any uf the
Acls,however,to support this objection,
5. The municipality being divided
Into two wards a sufficient number uf
candidates and mayor and alderman
were nominated in each ward but between the lime of nomination uud ilu*
election some candidates found i li.t
they had not the necessary properly
qualification and withdrew leaving no
candidates iu one ward. (Nolo; The
withdrawal is not expressly slated hm
il. is understood the faotsareassetouL.l
Then, is afurtlier practical difficulty
before the municipality ibut ihere are
not within ils limils at presenl a sufficient number of duly qualified persons
to Illl Ihe vacant offices ill Ihi* council.
Dealing Willi these, objections seriatim the following results are arrived
al;
1. The effect of this would appear to
he tn render the election null ami void.
Ill Reg. ex rel. Alleuiaing v. Zoilger, 1
Ont. P. R., 211), it was held that where
the place for an elect ion had I o be appointed l.y by-law the appoint.nent of
the place l.y resolution was a nullity
und in Beg, ex rel. Preston, 20nl, CL,
Cliamli. It. 178, the provisions in regard
to the place of holding tlle election
were alsu strictly construed,
2, I do not, Ihink thai ibis would in
ilself have been illegal and avoided the
election as in the case no returning
officer had been appointed, the city
clerk would have acted ex officio and
h<* no doubt was dulv sworn in as city
clerk.
3. It is not slnted upon what list the
election was held. I. is presumed thai,
the returning officer hud some list, and
that lhe list under which he was holding the election was publicly exhibited. If so, and no elector nt, the time
took the objection, it is possible thnt
the election might be upheld. See in
one case In Ontario, Hog. ex rel, Davis
v. Wilson, ,'i U, 0, LJ. 105, it was held
that where the returning officer was
not furnished wilh a list and nol with
Btandlng proceeded wiih the election
that it was an irregularity, which rendered iln* election liable avoided, if lbe
objection was taken by someons qualified In urge it, though il might not. ipso
facto  render   the election vnid.   See
Harrison's Election Manual, notes to
Section 131, The point, however is
d.n.hiful nnd lhe election seems unsafe
4 In view of the almost certain invalidity nf the election Ibis lasl ques*
tion is a most important nun ns even if
a new election is held nn city council
can be elected, It appears necessary
therefore that, an act should he passed
not only validating the anions of the
last council but, alsu providing fm the
municipal government nf the city fnr
the coming year.
The best way of obtaining this legislation is for the electors themselves tn
agree upon the ...embers of the council
and join in a petition for an act appointing thein irrespective nf property
qualifications. This will get rid of
nil difficulties us it is understood thai
by next January there will be plenty
of candidates whopossess the necessary
qualifications."
Noteing the points at issue it will b-*
seen that nne of the most impnrtiint is
lhat which refers lo the possible invnl-
adity of the Hrst council, nu thegrnunds
of non property qualifications of some
of its members,
As to the validity of the lust council
Ihere can he liltle doubt fnr if it is now
found thai there are not a, sufficient,
number of properly qualified persons
to fnr.n a new council resident in the
town, then sunn, of the members of the
late bndy must hata placed themselves
in a false position, andasaconsequ'ence
not. only Invalidated the acts of the
council ns a liody. hut as well, laid
themselves open in the infliction of
serious consequences.
in Inking Into consideration the state
of .iff airs ns now* presented, the quest inn
will naturally be asked, us to who is
responsible fnr such abusive legislation
and hy what means was il brought
about.'/
Upon so....-ones shoulders musl the
onus uf such a state of affairs resl, and
if rumors have the slightest shadow of
foundation there are members nf lbe
present Provincial Government who
aro directly interested In the townsite
company, and one of whom at least,
either wittingly or otherwise, misled
the house when the question of incur-
pnriit ing the town was under discussion.
Under these circumstances the matter
is therefore, not nne ot purely local
Importance, it. inflicts discredit upon
llie. Legislature and more particularly
..pontile Gnveri...ie.it, us it offers an
Instance in which it. would seem, personal considerations were somewhat
potent factors, in urging tile passage
of legislation, which can he classed
iily as obi.oxii.us.
Cut tiie No. 7 Ledge.
Latest reports from the Hob Roy in
Central Camp, are to the effect that
the No, 7 ledge has heen cut lhrough,
during the course of developing the
former claim, Such being the case
Mr, Alex Wallace tbe locator and
holder ..f the Rob Roy, is to be congratulated on his good fortune.
ll was not doubled for a moment but
thai the No. 7 vein ran into lho Rob
Roy ground, but, as it was not purtiou-
lary app&rent upun the surface, the
striking the lodge as depth was attained iu the shull, lends an additional
value to lhe discovery just made.
The No. 7, llu* adjoining property, is
iwi.e.l by the lhe llouudary Mines
'ompanv, who were fortunate enough
I..acq..Ire it at, a nominal price, and l.y
tho expenditure ofa few thousand dollars demonstrate that lhey poses*ed
in exceedingly valuable claim, as aire...ly it is said lo have between three
and four hundred thousand dollars
worth of ore in sight.
To be next door neighbour to such a
olalm, and to have the same rich vein
of ore is to be fortunate, and the owner
of the Rob Roy is so situated.

From   Official    Sources    Data   is
Gathered   Shewing   that    ft'iucli
Progress was nade in 1897 in
Kettle River Mining
Division.
The official returns, for 181)7, exhibiting tbe business done at the office of
the Mining Recorder (or the Kettlo
Itivor Division, Midway, are interesting, particularly sinn* they show ;.n
Increase ln|every Important description
of record. Tho tublo'published below
gives a coinpuritive vio.v of tho Bvo
years 1803-7 both Inclusive, li will
bo scon that tho large number of Free
Miner's certificates issued In IHixi was
exceeded in 1SH7. The location records
seems to have fallen off, bul In poinl
of fact thoy have nol done sn ns regards tho larger area formerly Included within the bdniidarios of the Kettle
Biver .Milling Division, II- must be
bourne in mind, in comparing the figures of the respective years, that in
.May, 181)7, tin* boundaries of the division were re-defined nnd the extensive
urea (including the Ohrlstlnn Lako
country, In which numerous locations
were made lust year) from the suniinit
nf the divide between Boundary Creok
i the North Fork of Kottle River,
eastwards to the suniinit of the Gold
Range, was constituted the now Or..ml
Forks Mining Division, For the pur-
poses of comparison therefore It would
be necessary to have the returns of the
Grand Forks division t hulas these
are not at hand the comparison must
here be confinod to the figures given
below.  There are two significant features In these figures—one in particular, tin. greul. number of certificate of
work records, and tho other tin* in-
creose   in  the  conveyance  records,
These indicate un Incieusod confidence
in the future of the district, first on
the part of prdspectors and other claim
holders doing work oil their claims,
nnd noxt ns displayed by tho transfers of cliiiins, many of the conveyances being to individuals or organisations having more capital at command than the prospectors or other
owners transferring  the  claims.   In
connection with the certilicate of work
records it is but fair to the district to
cull attention tu the fuel, that fur uior.
work bus boon done in many inslanees
lliun simply the 11.1.nuni ri'i|iiii'.'il ....del
the regulations, and this lb .1 greatet
degree than during any previous your.
Of course this  must  he so  to a far
larger exlenl in tlie (mint* If tho de-
velupment ..f the mineral resources of
the district is to be earnest ly and extensively proceeded wilh.    The aim-
piiraiivi'lv small 1......bur of certificates
of Iniproveiiients indicates that very
few chillis have us yet been crown-
granted, but as continuous hona-flde
mining Increases the necessity for ..
secure litle will require that In I hi*
particular the records shall also show
material iucreuse. The issue of four
mill site lenses suggests that .1 few
claim holders are looking ..head an.l
are expecting to see permanent niines
established here, Of cuurse the preparation of a statement showing the increase in ihe milling work actually
done in the disi.icl during the your
under review dues not come within lhe
scope of llu* Mining Recorder, who
partly from the lack of tluie or opportunity to collect such information,

THE ADVANCE
LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
Mr. T. McDonnell, of Greenwood,
returned from a business trip to Vernon on Friday's stage,
A miner named Edwards lately employed at the Jewel mine, Long lake,
Was last week laken to the Greenwood
hospital, suffering from some chest
affection, whieh had incapacitated him
for work.
Mr. McDonald, a representative of
the C. P. K, Is ot present in the district. It is said he is here having in
view the adjustment of claims in connection with the delivery of certain
consignments of freight.
At present signs point to an early
spring or at least to a rapid breaking
up of winter, us the snow is fast disappearing. A few more days of the
present weather, and sleighing will be
over for the first portion of 1808 at any-
rati*, in this neighborhood.
Mr. E. H, Fletcher, post office inspector, passed through town on Friday last, going on to Greenwood and
Grand Forks. During his visit to the
district (perhaps) Mr. Fletcher will endeavour to adjust mail matters a little,
hut that they will be satisfactorily arranged there is room (or much doubt.
Mr. Geo. E. Seymour one of the proprietors of the Windsor Hotel, Greenwood, returned last week from England, whither he had been on a visit
that extended over several months.
He was not accompanied by Mrs. Seymour, she having decided tn prolong
her visit among friends in the old
country.
To prevent confusion in postal arrangements the U. S. authorities have
re-named Eureka camp nn the Colville
reservation, The new name given it is
Republic. This was made necessary
owing to the fact that another place
called Eureka existed in the slate prior
to the christening of the new eamp.
On Wednesday last Mr. E, O'Slie.i
of Spokane and Mr. T. Graham of
Oamp McKinney passed through town
on their way from Camp McKinney to
Spokane. Mr. O'Sheii is treasurer of
the Cariboo Mining,Milling and Smelting Oompany, and recently visited the
camp on business connected with his
position.
In its last week's issue the Boundary
Oreek Times, in noting the fact that
Mr. A. K. Stuart had resigned the
Midway Townsite ageucy, staled that
Mr. B. Jacobs would fill the position
until Mr. Crane the agent arrived.
Under existing circumstance', the
■statement that Mr. Crane is now agent
for the company is erroneous, and
upon tlie subject evidently the Times
has been misinformed,
The Ice Carnival held at Greenwood
last Wednesday night proved a very
enjoyable affair, It was attended by
between 80 aud 40 skaters and a number of spectators. Some of the costumes were pretty and. others grotesque, Ihe combination making a
striking grnup, with kaleidoscopic
effects as tlle skaters moved to and
fro along the iee, The funds of the
local Rink Asssociatlon were added to
liy the proceeds of the carnival.
On Monday last a meeting was held
at the Lalirushire House,to which some
of lhe ladies of Midway were piesent,
the object being the formation of a
Lidies Aid Sociely. The object of the
ineeling was attained wiih the result
that Mrs. E. J. Dnwding was elected
president; Mrs. Lundy, vice-president;
Miss McKeuzie, treasurer and Mrs. W.
T. Thompson, secietary. The Hrst
matter to receive the attention of the
new society is the raising a subscription fund in aid of the Greenwood
hospital,
Mr, L. Bosshart came to Boundary
Creek on Friday's slage from Marcus.
Mr, Bosshart has resided iu Spokane
during the. winter, and now talks of
leaving for the Klondyke as booh as
ceriuin business arrangements can be
completed touching the welfare of the
property held by him in this district,
As an old time prospector Mr, Bosshart
was very successful during Ilis residence here and as lie Is particularly
energetic he will no doubt do equally
as well in the far north.
A very enjovalile dance was held in
McNicol's hall on Friday evening last,
under the auspices of the Midway
bachelors. Quite t number of lerpsi-
chorean enthusiasts were present, and
as tbe music was especially good, and
the floor perfect, those assembled
thoroughly enjoyed themselves, in
fact many were heard to declare that
never liefore hnd such a dunce been
held in the town, and this is certainly
saying a good deal. At Midnight refreshments were served, of a quality
and in a style quite in keeping with
the tenor of the balance of the evening's entertain.nent. About 11 o'clock
in the morning the participants dispersed and for the second time during
the pi«scnt winter, the bachelors
showed themselves capable entertainers,
With the coming of spring, the annually recurring question of how to
beautify lhe homes of the many residents of Midway, will again be to the
fore. Now that plenty of water is assured, through the medium of the
splendid irrigation system provided
last summer by the Midway company,
private individuals will not be lacking
in enterprise, in au endeavour to make
their surroundings attractive, but
what about tlie|gnverninent grounds?
Will these l.e allowed to remain as
they ure, or will an attempt be
made to bring them more iiitoh.trniuiiy
with their surruundings'!

MINING   NOTES.
Mr. B, W. Macfurlane A, M. I, C. E„
left last week for Trail Creek where, it
is understood, lie expected to meet
Mr. G. I). Mackay, who is interested
in several Boundary Creek mining
deals,
Hard rock and too much water huve
combined to make the Mackay, syndicate, who have the Ruby, in Smith's
camp, under bond, decide to stop work
there for the presenl. Crosscutting at
a level between 50 and 00 feet in depth
was in hand, hut, il is sluted progress,
wus so slow lhat the work wus too
expensive to he continued under the
circumstances.
Preparations are being made by the
Highland Queen Consolidated Gold
Mining eompanv to start work on one
of their claims, the Big Windy, situate
in Providence cninp. Just how long
the work will he conlin.ied has not yet
been determined upon, but at anyrate
a sufficient amount will be done to
fulfill the requirements of the law.
Mr. Leslie Hill, 0 E., engineer of
the Prospecting Syndicate of British
Columbia, Ltd., went out to Marcus
lust week, intending to return to Boundary Creek about the close, of the
'Urrent month. The Vancouver group,
at Silverton, Slocan, which is now
shipping high grade ore to Everett,
requires Mr. Hill's attention from
time lo time,
The recent, thaw came inopportunely
for those who undertook to convey to
the mine the boiler for the Gulden
Orown, in Wellington camp, With
rotten ice underfoot il is no easy tusk
to move such a weight us lhat con-
luined in this holler. However,difficulties were evenl fully surmounted, but
not until much time, labor and patience
had been expended upon an undertaking whicli two or three weeks'
earlier would in the then condition of
the load, been successfully carried out
with comparative ease.
Some trouble bus lately been experienced .it I he 50 foot level in the
Jewel, Long Luke, where ore is heing
stuped for lest shipments to Sun Frnn-
cisco nnd to a smeller at a less distant
point. A fault having broken one of
tbe walls, the neighboring country
ruck does not hold well together, hence
the difficulty referred to. The well-
known energy aud resotireefullness of
Foreman W. J. Barker is. however,
equal to the occasion, nnd the required
quantity of ore will be ready for shipment on time. The ore going to San
Francisco will be treated by t he cyanide
process at Messrs C. A. Luckhardt k
Go's, Nevada Metallurgical Works.
Mr. Win, Hamui is nnw in charge,
as foreman, of several men who are
engaged in further prospecting the
Snowshoe, in Greenwood cuuip. This
well-known property lies been re
bunded by tho McKay syndicate, repre
sented in the district by Mr, R. W.
Macfarlane, upon similar terms an.l
conditions to those named in the first
bond, which the syndicate had not
time to confirm before the expiration
of lhe lin.it.ed period allowed for rati-
Mention. It Is very prohahlethe Snow-
shoe, upon whicli there hnd ulreudy
been sunk a70-fu.it shaft, will now he
extensively prospected so as lo get a
belter idea of its value below ground.
As a surface showing it is generally
regarded ns an unusually good gold-
copper prospect. If this promise he
...ail...lined at. a depth it will indeed be
a valuable property,
Mr. L. S, Moulton Barrett has let a
contract to Messrs. S. Bund and W. ,1
Mortley to extend the tunnel on the
Hidden Treasure olalm, in Deadwood
cninp a further distance nf 50 feet
The tunnel wus ulreudy in 108 feet
■18 feel, of which had been timbered
when the men were laid off about a
fortnight since, The indications are
that the ledge will be met with before
the 158-foot point is reached. The
breast is now in mineralized rock and
small stringers of ore bnve lately heen
cut, wilh others coming in. Nothing
more will, for the time, In- done on
the Gold Bug, which adjoins the Hidden Treasure, Since Ihe water drove
the men out nf the 00-foot shaft a big
open cut has been made on the Gold
Bug, with results that will induce
further prospecting later. These two
claims are owned by Mr. A. Drucker,
M, P, fnr Northampton. England, who
purchased them from Mr. Thus, Walch
about a year ago.

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 1 to
12 inches; from this 8,(153 lbs, of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$10:1.15 gold per ton, silver 117-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent, lead, A tunnel is being
driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. R." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heuyily mineralized with an Intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
sllvergtance. The finest piecesof wireSil-
verfound onBotindaryOreek were taken
from this shaft. Ave. nge assays from
different places across the vein pave
$S.00 gold, 60 nzs,. silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs, silver and one, the
latest return—$15.0,1 gold and 11)114-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized will. Iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
up hy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, being one font, wide, currying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge us a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
und 1 1-10 ozs. silver, and $411,35 gold'
174 ozs, silver, 2 per cunt, copper.
The "S. F." lies I.eUveed the G. A. II.
and D.A,,in tlle direction of Ihe strike
on the G. A. R. vein. This location has
en -nileon a vein oc pyrt'hotite,
The "0. B." has two distinct veins .
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would see... to
lie the same vein as that-on the Big
Ledge, ..lliu.ugh sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet, Assays
have shown values iu gold fro... ,$4.00
to $170.5:1, while u conservative sampling by Mr. -S. ti. Fowler, M, E. gnye
$20.00 in gold,
On the"S. II. B." are two converging veins of copper ..nd iron pyrites,
on which work is now lieing done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
Hi? ozs,, copper 11.1)0 per cent., or
$10.4-1 for all values.
The "Fred D." was located in De
(•ember, 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its present value,
although Ihere is liltle doubt that the
large vein on the O. B. runs lhrough
it. There is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The "J. A. O." has a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet.
The ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.
The remaining six cl.iin.snre all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done on
the....
