Several statements havo lately heen
published respecting the recent pur-
case hy Messrs Mackenzie, Mann aud
others nt' tin* Intel t'Blt, owned liy Messrs
P. Parrel uul A. P. Mlgeon, of Unite,
Montana in Boundary Oreek iniiieriil
claims, As lliese have lieen more or

Hillside nf lllis district. The informal inn here given will not, however,
he beyond question as regards the
money consideration Involved and the
period over which payment is Lo he
extended though even these particulars
have heen obtained from an interested
parly well-informed generally nn the
pniiils, though not in regard to every
particular,
The put-eliasei-s are Messrs Mackenzie, Mann iv. Bull, well-known
eastern Canadian railway contractors
and capitalists, and Mr, J. P.. Boss, a
prominent mining man of Spokane,
The slated consideralinn is $100,000
payahle twenty five per rent rush
down, and the halancu In instalments
spread over a perlud of either twelve
or eighteen muni lis from date of the
ileal. The mining interests emhi'iu-ed
are the follow lug: two-thirds inleiest
in the Enterprise, in Coppercniup: one*
fourlheuch lu theMontezuina, Phoenix,
Rawhide and Standard, and seven-
eights in the Stemwinder,all in Greenwood camp ; and thi-ee-fnurthaeach iu
lie* Emtuu, Matt ie Davis, Minnie Moor
anil Mountain Hose, and a half in llu*
.luiulio, all in Siiitimit camp. Messrs
Farrell k Migenn are alsu part owners
uf tin.* Golden Iind and Puyallup, In
Central eamp, hut as olhei* parlies still
have an option ou these claims, they
are fur the present left nut of consideration iu the deal under notice. It is
estimated thai Messrs Farrell k Migenn
have expended, in purchase money

lures, su thai iu selling at $100,000
lhey will not. heiiut of pocket, allboiigh
since they have heen spending the
money over several years, their return
will uut he large in comparison willi
those of many others engaged in similar enterprises, but obtaining quicker
return*,,
Of the Greenwood camp claims mentioned ahove, ihe Sleiiiwiiider is regarded as heing of the most presenl
Importance, Ii was bought by Farrell
*.** Migenn iu 1894, and since acquiring
it I hey havo done—foi lliis distriet—a
cninparatlvely large amoiintof development work on il. Nu. 1 shaft is down
about 50 feet on a lode almost vertical
iu occurrence at the contact of lime
and iliiirite. The yein contains ahout
12 feel of solid live ore rlghl from ilu*
surface, aud lho values In it run fah.

average returns $22 Iii guld. lliree tn

silver. Nu 2shaft is nbout 1)0 feet In
deplh un a parallel vein In llial. un
which No. 1, is sunk, It goes down in
ill-outmost vertically for III) feet and
then I'm- llu* remainingKO feel follows

lo thai met with in tin- Nn.  1  shaft.
The hide lies bei w n well-d,•lined walls
and It trends ahout north and south,
Nu. tl shall Is down CO feet on tho same
lode as No, 1, tram which It is distant
uhntit 100 feet. A ernss-eul at the bottom uf the shaft shows a thickness of
aboul 12 feet nf solid ore, of tho same
eharacler as lhat ublalned iu ilu- No,
I shaft, Additional work Includes, a
tunnel, wliieli was started with tlie
objector connecting wilh No. 2 shaft
at the 00 fool level, hut this drive was
uul. completed, The Sleiiiwiiider lies
high, being aboul lliim feet above
Greenwood, Very lillle water lias
hitherto been encountered in ihe work-
lugs, so thai llu-hurse whim llial was
used was easily SllfHi'll'Ilt fur hoth
balling waler and huisllng rock. The
claim is crown granted, sn the lille to
il ahuiild be unassailable.
Tiie Phoenix adjoins lhe Stemwinder
un tile snutli and 's un tlle same leads.
It. has been surveyed, and although not
yel extensively prospected, sufficient
wurk has been done to entitle llle owners to a Ciown grant fur lhe claim,
Tin- Montezuma is a northerly exien-
sion of the Sleiiiwiiider, After another
$100 wiirlh uf wurk shall have been
dune uu this claim a Crown grant will
he obtainable. Tin Standard is a frac-
lton lying helween the Stemwinder
and ilu* Brooklyn, ilu* latter helng another well-known and valuable prop*
i-i I v. Besides a lot of sin face work on
ihe Standard there is a 20 foot shaft on
one vein and a 10 foul shaft on another.
The Rawhide is situate iu another part,
of Greenwood eamp, nearly a mile
suutli-i'iisf nf the Sleiiiwiiider group.
No particulars uf iis leads ur the wnrk
dune un Ilium are at baud just nuw,but
Ihe claim adjoins Ibe Snowshoe, Gold
Drop and Monarch so is in good company.
The Summit camp claims are likely
wilh systematic work to develop into
valuable mining properties. The Emma
.liniihu, and Minnie Moot- are adjoining
claims nn the same lead, whilst the
Mat tie Davis and Mountain Hose are
ou a parallel hut more easterly vein.
The lnile un ihe Emma is ilo feet in
width ou the surface, hut its width at
file bottom of lhe 110 foot'vertical shaft
sunk on it has nut yet been proved by
cross-cull iug. The ore is of a copper-
gold character und gives assay returns
that promise well fur a payable bulk
yield. A second and parallel vein on
this cluim is aboul eight leel in width,
It has been sunk on lo a deplh of 20
feet, native copper occurs freely in the
ore. The Jumbo adjoining the Emma
un the northward, The $.a(X) worth of
work done on Ibis cluim has been
chiefly tnllned lu surface cross nil I lug,
and this has disclosed the presem f
a well-defied lead, supposed lo come in
from the Emma and to run si ill fan her
northward i bruugli to lbe Minnie Moor,
on which a 23-foot ledge with i-upper-
gold ore has been uncovered in a crosscut ten feel in depth. On the Mountain
llose the vein appears to run parallel
willi Ihe slope of the hill. A 10 Foot
opent-ul encountered solid pyrohntttu
ore through 2*> feet of which a tunnel
was run. So far ihis ore is of low
grade, what values there are being in
copper und gold. A shaft has been
sunk 23 feet un the Mattle Davis a
cross-cut al the bottom bus exposed
20 feel of magnetite with a little copper ure.
The only other claim of the number
Included in I his deal that now remains
lo be referred lo is llie Enterprise, in
Copper cuuip, In 18113 a vertical shaft
was sunk suine 70 ur 73 feel, wilh what
results -.vas not ascertained in time fur
ibis nm iee. Some native copper was
found in a surface cross-cut, and probably the value Ihe ore.occurring here
will he iu copper lhat lu-uig the chief
iiiiiiui-ul yet met wilh iu Cupper camp,
The Enterprise is an extension uf ibe
Big Cupper and it iipcnis lu be well
wiirlli developing lu a euusidepable extent.-
The foregoing will serve to show
that the deal under unlive is an Important nne, the more su as some of
llie nai'lies to it are lhe presenl owners
of Ihe V. V. k K. railway charier. It,
Is consequently hoped lhat lhey will
become tin* owners nf tin* interests
mentioned above aud loo lhat. in acquiring these interests thev will have
the greater reason lo do their utmost

EDITORIAL NOTES.
LAST YEAR'S PROG H ESS.
Although a correct statement cannot
he made as lo lhe present slage of
development, a rough idea can he conveyed of lhe vigorous policy pursued
hy the company, in the development
of Ibe Joe Dandy, and their other
claims, as il. mighi be observed Ihal
some four months ago on lhe Joe
Dandy alone Upwards nf 131)0 feet of
wurk bail been dune, iu shafts, drifts,
winzes aud tunnel, which weie distributed fairly well uver Ihe property,
und consisted of tho No. 1 tunnel,
which from entrance to breast covered
a distance of some 375 feet. In this
tunnel was also a winze whieh was
sunk on the vein I'm- IK) feet, and as
well two crosscuts, lhe one 70 and the
olher 50 feet ill length. Above the No.
1 tunnel is another known as the Davis
tunnel. This was driven some 80 feet,
following tin* ledge. Near the mouth
a winze was sunk to a deplh of 3D feel
which carried It dnwn lu a connection
with the No. 1 tunnel.
On the western side of the claim,
tunnel No. 2 was driven a distance of
211) feet, cutting at nearly right angles
but neatly another which was run snme
170 feet on the vein, and designated as
In*N irth luii-i'l.   N'.-tr the nth of
this tunnel but alsu un the ledge nshnfl
wn sank 115 feat deep, and at the 100
foot level drifts, east and west, were
driven in ore some 00 feet.
Near the entrance of No, 1 funnel a
shaft was also sunk to a depth of 53
feet, from the bottom of which crosscuts were run for 75 feet.
Other claims belonging to the cuuipany upon which work at lhe lime
had been done, were the Atlas, having
a shaft down 70feet; tlle Daisy nj|.h a
shaft 30 feel and a crosscut of -10 feel ;
tbe Belmont with a tunnel 05 feet, and
tlle Gilpin a fractional claim, a tunnel
30 feel in length.
Of course the end of the year would
see niuch more work dune, as operations under the skilful guidance of
Captain J, ti. Mitchell, assisted by
Messrs J. R. Dray and E, T. Ballard
have been continuously carried on,
with it is said very marked success,
Turning to oilier properties in the
same camp if is found I hat an enormous
amount of work has been done by the
enterprising firm of Messrs Dler, Davidson & Riissel, who were Instrumental
during Ihe year in forming several
mining companies, Ihe principal among
which may lie mentioned I In* Tin Horn
Quurlz Mining enmpany, and Ihe Winchester Guld Mines run.pane.
Tiie Tin Hum Quarlz Mining company although owning several claims,
have confined themselves principally
to the develupiiienl  of the Tin  Horn
claim, and have  effectually demonstrated that the t hie given lhe property
is not liy any means consonant wilh
its intrinsic value, us by tunnel, shaft
and winze uii exceedingly line Inoking
ledge has.heen disclosed,   FoiirjtunnelsJ
have been driven on the vein, whieh
cleaves tiie formation, und runs aluiosl j

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 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.
DARY CREEK CITY.
TTS 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
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. Lull particulars of both mineral claims and
town lots will be given upon application to the
