damage to Rancher Willis.
Messrs. Wood and Nelson, of Rock

for tlie lead from whence the placer
gold originated. No colors have ever
been found above the falls.
Mr. Melnnis, photographer, of
Spragtie, Wash., met with an accident

give tlie people of that settlement good
pause to bless, or rather curse, Ibe inili-
yidual who, it seems, wilfully started
the fire along Boundary creek, ll is
It is generally believed that this was
done by some miner for the purpose of
uncovering tlie ground for the purpose
pf prospecting, bul, we can hardly believe such to lie the case. We would
rather believe it the work of some
reckless or thoughtless Individuals. If
wilfully set out the penalty fur such a
crime brought home to any one should
be extremely severe.

DISTRICT NOTES.
There was a good clean-up on the
Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney, last
week.
Mr. II. ytjttouili'igb, of Rook creek, is
in Victoria on business connected with
the Haynes estate,
Messrs. Duncan anil James Hardy,
brothers of Mr. T.,1. Hardy, of Boundary Falls, came to Hrniid Prall'io lust
week from Chicago Tbe latter bias
purchased an interest in Mr, Hardy's
ranch in Grand Prairie aud ivill a.,!!,■
in tho country.
.Mia ('. VI. Wilson, Ua' Spokane ink
ing expert, is expected in shortly to
examine the Boundary creek ores.
The latest assay by .Mia Glbbs of unpicked ore taken from Ibe Stemwluder
shaft,'at a depth of 25 feet, ran $139,10
in gold,
Eighty lens of concentrates from
Camp McKinney are being shipped lo
Tacoma via Penticton, The teams are
travelling via Sidley's and Osoyoos
through the,Sin!,a;,
.Alia (leo, Rumbergcr lias made a new
location I'li'il of Hie Knob Hill. The
character of the ore appears lo be the
same as Ihe real, in Greenwood and Ibe
surface showing Is big.
.Mia King, of Hie Cariboo Mining

1'ungoin.eiits. for working ibe hydraulic
claim on Rock creek. .Mr. McKinuoy
will, we bear, be foreman,
Mr. Atwood is prospecting the Oro
for Mr. James Douglas, and lie open
surface cuts discbaa' what may yel,
turn out to be ;•, fine vein of oro, ai
least present indications point to such a
resull.
Mr. Ncbnlield, who is doing assessment work on Hie Number Seven, in
Atwood's eaiii]), is taking out good, pre
near the old shaft, A new shaft is also
being sunk on tbe claim on a three-
foot vein, The ore is galena currying
gold and silver,
The miners in the district feel vory
sore over the road work being stopped.
As one gentleman pul it, " lo have the
cup placed to your lips and then rudely
dashed away, just as you are about to
drink fo tbe health, wealth, ami prosperity of the country is loo much,even
for a hardy miner used to all kiwi-; of
disappointment to bear."
On the summit of Boundary Mountain, a mile and half north "f tbe old
Dewdnoy trail (between the Skylark
ami While's camp) Mr. W, T, Smith
has a promising claim called the Lookout, which he located last May. The
ledge is three feel, iu width ami carries

Into sulphurate deeper down. Two I.V
foqt shafts have been sunk on it. 'ibe
ore samples $20.
The through waggon road over
Boundary mountain, though uncompleted, is finished within a quarter of a
mile of the Helen and Capital Prize,
(he two comparatively recent strikes
which were bonded by Mr. Sudani,
Tbe ore is rich enough to ho shipped
nnil probably will be Ibis fall. The
ledge has been exposed ou the surface
for 1,300 feet. Tin'Helen is owned by
Synionds aud Wallace, and the Capital Prize by Humphrey and Lind,
Work was re-commonced on Monday on the Nonsuch, in Smith's camp,
a few men lining pul on to deepen the
shaft. A test of the oro from this
claim was made in Spokane lately,
which proved it to be a free-milling
proposition, iiinty per cent of the gold
being saveable by amalgamation, .Mr.
Smith reports that Messrs, J. A, Pinch
and Louis Vernon, representing Hie
Everett Smelting Company, will be in
shortly to examine this and oilier properties,
Wo are informed that the project is
entertained among several strong mining men to erect a smelting plant ou
the Columbia river, somewhere north
of Northport, but on tbe Canadian side
of the line, where the orps of the Nelson, Slocan, Trail creek und Boundary
creek districts could be handled together, The idea is that the lai ter
ores, containing a largo percentage of
copper, could be used in tlie reduction
of the former, llieie not being siifllci-
ent variety in the Slocan and Nelson
ores, or those of the Trail creek district
alone, The Trail creek ores, also, we
understand, do not contain sufficient
copper lo matte themselves, If such
an enterprise wore undertaken, how-
over, nros from this district would of
necessity have to he shipped via the
Slates m bond, there being no through
road or means of communication of
any kind, outside of one trail, on Ihe
British side hetwoen the east end of
tho district and tho Columbia river.
Just at the presenl n review of some
old lime experiences may nol be out of
place, with reference to the greal difficulties that some mining men labored
under a few yoars since, and are still
working under, ton lesser degree, even
at, this laic day, in tholr endeavor to
develop the hidden mineral wealth of
tbo province. In this respect some of
the experiences of Mr, James Douglas,
one of the foremost, if not the. foremost of mining men in theloworOkun-
ag.in, furnish a striking example, This
geutloman, in the fall uf 1887, located
In Camp McKinney the Eureka mineral claim, and the Douglas Mining
Company, in tbe face of all the difficulties they then bad to contend with, Bel
about to develop the property, It will
he readily understood how severe was
tbo strain upon the energy of the Individuals and upon their purse si rings us
well, when il is mentioned Ibal everything consumed had tu bo packed into
the country on pack animals, which
meant a large amount of labor and
added to the cost of articles consumed
to such an extont Ihal they were three
thn,os the present prices, Vidua Ibid
Ibal ibe work on Ibis mine consists of
il shaft sunk to tho depth ol' 152 feel.
Aattt depth of 8fl feel, a cross-col was

coining for Ibis erection of suitable machinery Ic'lbc working of the mine,
they worn handicapped by llu; excessive freight rales charged by the
O.P.R, on machinery from Ibe east,
which iii. llu1 lime amounted to two
nnd a ball times Ibe first cost of the
machinery, and the transportation of
ibe same from Stannous, in Camp McKinney would augment the cost lo two
and a half limes Ihe cost of Ibe plant,
ThitSi'to give example, bad the planl
co-! $5,000, by the time it would have
been landed on ibe ground, il would
total lie' Iinndsnmosum uf $17,500. I
was, therefore, though! advisable under
the circumstances lo allow llu- mine to

mail! las would remedy themselves, li
would he well, however, In point on!,
'that the Cariboo, which is on Ibe same
ledge, and is being worked at tbe presenl linn', has been demonstrated without doubt to In' a good paying proposition, ami we may Infer thai these other
properties, us soon as they puss into

CORRESPONDENCE,
 ►—
To tlio Editor of Tub Advance:
SIR—Would you allow me spare in
tho columns of your paper to show to
Ilie people of Ihis cunsiliiency ibe way
and manner the public uionoya are
spent or thrown away.
In Ibe lirst place a superintendent
was appointed of roads anil bridges fur
what is known as the lower country,
from Penticton to Cascade Oily. Now
il isa well know fact Ihal, thero was
already a road from Pcnlictou to Fail''
view (2,'i) miles) and there was ;i small
amount of nionoy spent In keep Ibis
mail in repair, Such being the ease be
could have started lu build ibe road
I'ruiii fairview bridge on Ihe Okanagan
lu (Iriiiid Prairie, via Citllip McKinney,
The fact of the mutter is, all the summer was wasted   lasl   year   fooling
around Hog Town, iind nobody I e-
lllled. The next thing imdei'lal.cn
was to Illl up Viiseux lake. Who ever
beard tell of a sanp, man undertaking
the responsibility of filling up a body
of waier sixty foot deep? Nol even
mi the largest railroads would any
man wilh linrse sense think of nucha
thing, Well Ih the neighborhood of
llvo thousand dollars has been thrown
Into Ilinl lake, and thai  much moro
would uol make a ejiod n a, n I as ilx
hundred would do inside cutting a'■■ a
the same place, Any way, ul llu
pn ■-,,] time, ii ivas nc ue i rj to
ba' " thai par! of Ihe iv irk dune, I
,1,,';.' hi ncfil ed a few i Dog Town,
while hundreds of people i ith aud
i us! have still to tl ivel mil ' il. ('.
into Washington nnd back again. You
will remember that the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works w.as
having a littio nulla a, and Ih,' people
that In; met made it appear to him
thai the road to Camp McKinne;
would be bettor nndur way, so he mad,'
u splurge and they started the road fur
Cum]) McKinney, A very short linn
after snow conim meed lo lly a."-1 i|
froze up of course, [load worn 1, ! lo
slop, Winter nearly passed the
Intendeiil wnssentdown through the
country to locate a route over Bound
ury mountain, when fourfeet of snow
wore on the summit, A good time In
locate n road, you will say, Well,
when ho wn I leaving for Vernon I
was luld when the snow would bo of'i
the summits and bo suid ho would
come down, locate the route, and commence work as .-nun nn possible, April,
all of May nml ; ar! of rime pa sed mid
tho election waa getting dangerously
near, Along comes Mr, Venn n with
Mr, Sail;.!: .. as bis guide, Tbe route
was located and men wore to be pul to
work iii six days and a learn waa biui
after the tools, Well, the nioi I. nf the
tools have uul got hero as yet. i su| -
pose they are still on the ro id, Now
tho distance from the Okanagan bridge
to Camp McKinney in sum ifhing like
twenty-four miles, hive niilcn of this
was liuii! in 1803, and on the 15th of
August this year Iii";' arc Ihreoand
one-half miles from Camp McKinney;
ll: d is Bixleen and one-half miles biiill
from the8th of .May. with a force oi'
l'i'iiin twenty in Ihirly-eighl i mn employed on a road Haul could be easily
built fur $10!) [ier mile ; thai Is, provided i!. was handled in propi r shape.
They, if they gut iii full time, were
earning $15 per week, und were paying fur board $0, which leaves $1,50
per day. Of course nn :i will nut do Ihe
sumo work for $1,50 per day. With a
different man at the helm the road
would have bean completed for Ibe
twenty thousand by Hie lsl of Si plumber. One of the best men hi the country claims that ibe road could have
been built for the amount quite easily.
Tbe sumo man has built uver seven j
miles uf road nn Boundary creek,
equally as difficult u road to build, fur
a trifle uver three hundred dollars perl
mile, and if Mr. Schubert bad nut disappointed him he could have built the
same for at least fifty dollars per mile
cheaper. In the first place, tools, steel,
powder, fuse and caps did nol come,
il might be a good idea lo give Ilie
amount of tools the local road foreman
on this section was supplied wilh. lie
Iiiul to borrow shovels, after waiting
leu days, A scraper was bought aud
is laying at Osoyoos, and a side-bill
plough which baa not appeared as ye .
The consequence was a plough had to
bo borrowed tho same way with ilia
shovels. Two mattocks wore furnished for twenty men working '... thicli
tiiulior, where il bad tu be grubbed
twelve feel wid", and two men working nt rock work had to borrow steel,
powder, fuse and caps, lie was generously supplied with two axes. At the
same time this gang hud lu build iliree
bridges, besides i lie culverts, 'l be covering of the latter tiro as follows: 10
fee! al Kerr's, ;!! feet Roy's, 70 feel
crossing Boundary creek, They are,
however, all completed, with the exception of ffiliiig one pier with ruck,
If tho man had been told thai none
would be sent he would have gol thein
elsewhere. He had lo contend with
the same drawback with his steel, 1.
had lo be packed or hauled live miles
in oriler'lo gel b sharpened, and al
last be came to the conclusion I hat
Mr. Schubert hud resigned Ids position,
and he ordered, tools from the smith,
By tho tiiim those tools arrived Ilie
work was closed down, the reason
given for bo doing being thai Ihe
money bad all heen i] mil or nil thai
bad, bean appropriated for Boundary
mountain.   Did an;: m ever In ur of n
man making an ostium f
iweiily miles of road in a country like
ibis, and especially where ynu have In
raise uver two thousand feel lo gel
over a divide? li has not been stated
who made Ihis estimate, bul that is
something like tho fuel that $1,800 were
I'liid [orengineering in order log, ,In
distance, li would nol have bei n so
bad ii' use of those sin veys had bei n
liliido whore il was foasible, bill ii was
that much monoy thrown away. A
person would naturally wonder whal
became of this $20,001 nf un appropriation, A trifle over $1,000 waa spent on
Boundary and Fourth of July creek ,
and thirteen miles of road were built,
for the same, Did nineteen miles of
road cost $15,000? and if so, why? II
would be well to und Tstuiid thai In ih
aides of Boundary mountain were
treated in the same manner, I think
ihal Ibe above facte prove quite clearly the reason fur holding back the
work and ul the same lime.keeping
buck the country's progress. One reason 1 understand which was given for
not starting work at tbo mouth of
Rock creek was the superintendent did
nol want to buy his supplies from
Spokane.,   Whal ure the poop!"
in Ibis country lo do until be eels ibis
road completed. His men paid $0 per
week for board, while the men on Ihis
Mid uf tho work's paid at lein i 20 per
lent more for their supplies ;iu,l paid
$10 for ii cook per month and each
mini paid only $11 per month, Therefore, after deducting SII for board
they bad an object in lining a fair day's
work, I think that this is sufficient
for the present, aud « ill wall for a few
weeks to sec if things wid not lake n
change. If nol ynu will surely hear
I'rnm me again, and I will lay and
point mil a tew slick election li inks.

it is generally believed that this wns

DISTRICT NOTES.
week from Chicago The latter has
purchased an interest in Mr, Hardy's
ranch in Grand Prairie aud will settle
in tho couulry,
Mr. C M. Wilson, the Spokane miti
ing expert, is oxpeeted in shortly to
examine the Boundary creek ores.
The latest assay by Mr, Bibbs of unpicked ure taken from thu Stomwinder
shaft,'at a depth of 25 feet, ran $139.<10
in gold,
Eighty luiis, of concentrates from
Camp McKinney are being shipped to
Tacoma via Penticton, Tbe leauiB are
travelling via Sidley's and Osoyoos
through the States,
Mr, (leu, Rumberger bus made a new
location east of tlie Knoh Hill, The
ebnrnelei of the oro appears to be tho
same as the real in Greenwood and the
surface showing is big.
Mr. King, of the Cariboo Mining
Company, is making the necessary arrangements for working the hydraulic
claim on Book creek, Mr. McKiuuey
will, we hear, be foreman,
Mr, Atwood is prospecting the Oro
for Mr. James Douglas, and the open
surface culs discl.uue what may yet
turn out to lie a line vein of ore, at.
least present, indicationspoiuttosuch a
result.
Mr. Seliulb'ld, who is doing aasess-
mentwork on Ibe Number Seven, in
Atwood's camp, is talking out gootj pro
near tlie old shaft. A new shaft is also
being sunk on Ibe claim on a three-
foot vein. The ui'i! is galena carrying
gold and silver,
Tbe miners in the district feel very
sore over tbe ro,".'! work being stopped.
As one gentleman put it, "to have the
up placed tu your lipsaud then rudely
dashed away, just as you are about to
jNol- [ drink In the health, wealth, and prosperity of the country is too inuch,eveu
for a hardy miner used to all kinds of
disappointment to bear."
On tbe summit of Boundary Mountain, a mile and half north uf tbe old
Dewdnuy trail (between Ibe Skylark
and White's camp) Mr. W, T. Smith
bus a promising claim called Ibe Lookout, which he located last May, The
ledge is three feel in width and curries
free gold on tbe surface, which turns
into sulphurate deeper down. Two 15;
foot iibafls have been sunk iiii it. Tbe
ore samples $20.
Tlio through waggon road uver
Boundary mountain, though uncompleted, is finished within a quarter of :i
mile of the Helen mid Capital Prlsso,
Ilie two comparatively recent strikes
which were bonded by Mr, Sudani.
Tbe ore is rich enough to be shipped
and probably will be this fall. Tbe
ledge baa been exposed on the surface
for 1,801) feel. Tbe Helen is owned by
Symonds nnd Wallace, nnd the Capital Prize by Humphrey and Lilid.
Work was re-coinmonced on .Monday ou the Nonsuch, in Smith's camp,
a few men being put on to deepen the,
shaft, A test uf tbe ure from this
claim wns made in Spokane lately,
whicli proved it to be a free-milling
proposition, nlnty per cent of the gold
being saveable by amalgamation, Mr.
Smith reports that Messrs. J. A, Finch
and Louis Vernon, representing Ibe
Everett Smelling Company, will be in
shortly to examine Ibis and other properties,
Wo are informed that, the project is
entertained among several strong mining nun to erect a smelting plant ou

creek districts could be handled together, Tbe idea is that the latter
ores, containing a large percentage of
copper, could bo used in the reduction
of tlie fni'iner, theio nut being sufficient variety in the Slocan iind Nelson
ores, or lluise of the Trail creek districl,
alone, The Trail crook ores, also, we
understand, do not contain sufficient
copper lu matte themselves. If such
an enterprise were undertaken, bow-
evei, tires IVi'iii Ibis district would of
necessity have to be shipped via tbe
Slales in bond, there being no through
road <>r means of communication of
any kind, outside uf one trail, on tic.!
British side between the east cud of
tho districl and tho Columbia river,
Thero was a good clean-up on tbo
Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney, last
week.

Messrs. Duncan and James Hardy,

Just at Hie present a review of some
old lime experiences may nut be out uf
place, wilh reference In the great difficulties thnl somo mining men labored
under it few years since, and are still
Working under. Ion lesser degree, even
at this late day, in tholr endeavor lu
diau top ibe hidden mineral wealth of
tbo province,   In this respect some of
the experiences of Ml', .billies Douglas,
uiie uf ibe foremost,if notthtjforemost uf mining men in the lower Okanagan, furnish ii striking example. This
geiilleiiiiiii, iii llu' full uf 1887, located
in Camp McKinney the Eureka mineral claim, and ibe Douglas .Alining
Company, in ibe face of all ibe difficulties they lliiiii bud lu contend with, set
ubiiiil in ilevelop Hie property. II. will
bo readily understood how severe was
tbe slrain upon the energy uf Ibe individuals and upon their purse strings us
well, when it Is inontloned that everything consumed bad lobe packed Into
ibe country un pack animals, which
meant a large amount of labor and
added to Iho cost of nrtlcles consumed
to such un extent Hint, they were three
times the present prices, Votive Iind
Iiiul llu' work on Ibis mine consists of
a shall Mink lo Ibe depth of 152 feel.

tlioy won handicapped by llu; excessive frolght rates charged by Ilie
C.P.R, un machinery from Ibe east,
which al Hn' timo amounted to Iwo
uiui ii half times Hie Unit cost of the
machinery, and the transportation of
the same from Stannous, lu Camp McKinney would augment the cost lu two

Tlius.'lu give example, had llu' plant

CORRESPONDENCE,
To tho Editor ol Till! Advamcei
Sib—Would you allow me space 111
the columns of your paper to show to
the people of this consituoncy the way
and manner the public money a are
spent ui' thrown away.
In Ibe first place a superintendent
was appointed of roads and bridges for
what is known as the lower country,
from Ponticton to Cascade City, Now
ii is n well know fact that thero was
already a road from Penticton to Fair
view (25) miles) and there was it small
amount of money spent to keep this
road In repair. Such being the ease be
could have started to build the road
from Fairview bridge on the Okiinagati
loGraud Prairie, via Camp McKinney,
The fuel of the mutter is, all tlio slimmer was wasted last year fooling
around Dog Town, and nobody benefitted, Tho next thing undertaken
was to lill up Vnai'iix lake, Whoever
heard tell of a sane man undertaking
the responsibility pi filling up a body
of wilier sixty tool deep? Nol even
un the large*! railroads would uuy
man with horso souse think of such a
tiling, Well in the neighborhood of
live thousand dullars has been thrown
iulu iluit lake, and Ibal much moro
would nol make a -, icl a run 1 as ix
hundred would do inside a aa
the same place. Any way, ul
presenl time, it was nol ne i rj ;■
bayo thai part of Hie work it a . II
only benefitted a few al Dog Town,
j while bimdreds of people sou!
eusl have still to travel put ol ■'-.'.
into Washington and bin k again, uu

that the road In Camp McKinney

a splurge and they started the road for
Camp McKinney, A very shorl thin

locate a road, you will say, Well,
when he was leaving lor Vernon he
was told when the snow would be ol)
the summits and be said lea would
come down, locate the route, and commence work as soon a i possible. A pril,
all nf May and pari of Juno p;i isi il nnd
Hi' election v.a. geltiug dangerously
near, Along conies Mr, Vernon with
Mr. Schub i'l :i:, la a guide, The route
was located nnd men were lu be pul to
work In six days and a team was sen
after the tool i, '', ell, Ibe most of the
tools have nol got here as yet. 1 suppose lin",' are still on the ro id, Now
thodislancc from the Okanagan bridge
to Camp McKinney ; i something like
twenty-four miles, Five milen of ibis
was built in 1803, and on the 15th of
August this year they are three and
one-half miles from Camp Mi Kinney;
that is sixteen and one-half miles built
from the Sib of May, with a I'nrc ■ of
frqm twenty to Lhhiy-eighl ] i u employed on a road that could be easily
built for $100 per mile -, that Is, provided il was handled in proper shape.
They, if they got in full lime, were
earning $15 per week, and were paying for board $0, which leaves $1.50
per day, Of course nu :i will nol do (he
same work for $1.50 per day. Witli n
different man al the holm the road
would have been completed for lia
twenty thousand Ir the lsl of Si ptem-
liai-. One of the best men in the country claims ibnl, the road could havo
been liuill for the amount quite easily.
Tbe samo man has built over seven
mi1 s nl road on Boundary creek,
ci:;; illy as difficult n road to build, for
ii trifle uver three hundred dollars per
mile, and if Mr. Schuhort had not disappointed him lie could have built tbe
saino for at least fifty dollars per mile
