Several unfavorable conditions have
i-iiinl.iiii'il In Influence the owner of Ihe
Skylark mineral claim, iu Skylark
camp, which hus shipped about 12(1
tons of high grade ore, to suspend
mining operations on this claim fur a
time. These nre chiefly the low price
of silver, Ihe difficulty and heavy cost
uf shipping ure mid getting in machinery, In the absence uf railway
transmutation facilities, mid the fact
that Ihe hurst* whim hitherto in use is
now inadequate to successfully cope
with the flow of water iulu the main
shaft, so that it would require the
iiiKlallminn of a steam plant tn enable
sinking tu a greater depth tu be proceeded with.
The Skylark is owned by Mr. G.
Liiviigulnn, uf Sail Luke (lily, Utah.
It hns suuiewhat uf a history aiming
the mining properties of Boundary
Oreek, It was lhe first location In
whut is now known as Skvlnrk Camp
and is situate within two miles nf
Greenwood City. It was recorded on
July 28, ISdi, by Mr. S, Bluyer. Among
Ihose who have since been interested
in llle claim ure Messrs ,Ius. Atwood,
J. Douglas and Thus, Wake, of Bound-
*iry Oreek; Mr. Unwind 0. Walters
and the Spokane und Great Nml hern
Mining company, of Spuknne|: Mr. 0.
Hunger, of Hulle, Molilalia, uud the
present owner. Tlle cluim hns been
mentioned In several annual reports of
Ihe provincial Minister of Mines. In
that fur IW the following occurs :
"Two shafts have been sunk un the
claim, une 55 feel and the oilier 15 feet,
frum which 425 sacks ot ure, weighing
27,025 pounds, were sent, to the sinellet
at Tacoma, and yielded 2118 ounces In
silver and one ounce ill gold per toil."
The ore wus packed uut on horses to
Grand Prairie uud conveyed thence to
Marcus by wagon, ul. a cost of iibiiul
$80 per ti ii. The report for 1814 says :
"Dining Ihe season (18 tuns of ore were
sent, tu llie smeller al. Everett, Wash.,
which yielded 200ounces in silver uml
li ounce iu guld per tun, or;a total of
$8,500 in silver (ul 03 cents per nunc,-),
and $1,81X1 in gold (ul $211 per ounce)
. 4 . . . The vein, which is six to
twenty-four inches in width, of well-
mineralized ore, has been traced on
Ilk* surface for n distance of lull feel.
The ore is principally grey enpper uud
giileiiu, with a small percentage uf
ruby silver."
In May 181)0 IheSkylmk und a northerly extension, culled the Denver, were
bonded by Mr. O, Rueger fnr $15,1X10,
Imlf nf which sum wus puid dnwn. By
a liiterarrangeiiient these claims were,
upun payment l.y Iiiiii uf the second
$7,500,traiisfei-red to Mr.Lnv.iguinu.Mr.
0, Rueger has been in charge uf the property for snine lime, nud wurk bus
been continued with little or no inter-
mission from about August 181X1 until
lately. Thirty Ave Inns of high guide
ure were recently sucked for shipment
lu the smelter, nnd the bulk of it has
al really been hauled lo Marcus, The
shnfl from which the ore was taken Is
about IX)feet In depth on the incline,

A Result of Quarantine.
A recent press despatch from Marcus
Contains the following :—The ncliun uf
Ihe Brilish Ooliimliiu authorities III re-
fusing to allow uny Amurii-un horses
lo cross the line is causing no end of
trouble. Tons of freighl. for Is.lh
Brit ish Columbia points and reservation
points, are being detained hen-, mul it
looks us though there will be n I'ig
scarcity of supplies unless the quarantine is raised shortly. Many people
are wailing here with teams ami supplies whu are anxious lu get into llle
reservation, but cannot do it on account nf having to puss Into British
Columbia, und ns a result a strung
effort is being made to construct a
road lhrough Lone Ranch puss. This
is a luw puss uud would save ul least 17
miles between Marcus mid all reservation pollitg, as well as Greenwiiud,
Carson und Midway, B, C, and it will
he al leust, 10 miles neuter lo Grand
Forks hy way of the Lime Ranch puss
than the present route by the way of
the Kettle river.
The owners of Ihe Midway town-
site have offered $250 towards the new
roud and the Nelson people are willing
to donale freely, as their town will be
at the other end of the new road, It
Is also understood Unit lhe Chirks, « bn
are inteiested in Euieka, will give
heavy donations, as well us D. C. Ou.-
bin of the 8. F. & N. railway, nml ilm
parties who huve the matter in charge

intention to make it u good sleigh roud
this winter und improve it us tin* snow
and trust leave in the sprlug, 'lbe
amount of roud to lui built is under lu

Other newspaper correspondence
states that 50 men have already been
put to work on the Lone Hunch i'.iss

EDITORIAL NOTES.
It will be reinbered thut somo tlmo
ago, an application was made to the
Water Commissioners by two rival
claimants, fora grant of water, of sever,
al thousand inches, to be diverted from
the Keltle river at u point known us
the 'Jascade falls, The decision uf thu
Commissioners was favorable tu the
Cascade Development Company, und
as a result a dual has, it is said, been
concluded between this company und
a strong syndicate, which proposes, if
rumour is correct, to nt once construct
works in which to instill a lurge plant,
designed to furnish power for mining
and other purposes,
The syndicate, ve understand, is
lioiind to expend the sum uf $50,000 Iu
the construction of these wurks.
If such is the case, uot unly will it
mean much to Cascade City, which ts
near l.y,bul as well to the whole tributary district, as nothing that could be
devised, with the exception of the
huilding of a railwny, would stimulate
the mining industry so much, us the
provision of a power, whioh could be
readily made use of by those engaged
in developing the resources of thut section.

setting forth the most urgent needs of
the district, viz—railway communication and a daily innil service each
way between Penticton and Marcus,
via Midway, Greenwood nnd other way
points. In connection with the former, the imperative necessity fur actively proceeding with lhe work of con-
striictinn, wus forcibly submitted, Information relating tu several of the
more prominent nf the Boundary (Irook
mining properties was given, nnd, tun,
an opinion against the placing of an

GOOD ACCOMMODATION.   GOOD STABLING,
Stopping Place for Stages to and from Penticton and Oro, Wash
A Piece of Spite.
In Its issin- nf tin* 271 h iiii. llie Grand
'urks Miner, the well-known mil huriiy
on Lindley Murray and "English as
she is i-pnke," gives vein to ils feelings
as follows, the article lieing set forth
wilb all the mistakes and omissions il
contains:—
This stopping over of the Marcus
stage at Hull's priilinlily due lo the
pleasing eccentricity of the Custom's
department whicli recently deemed
that the Milieus stage should route
around hy Cascade Cily instead of
keeping straight on as it used lo Grand
Forks. How much customs business
does the nuni at Ciisi-nde man (sic) do
at Cascade anyway '/ ll is told of him
that when asked once liy the siege
driver if the stage would lie coinpelled
Income around hy Cascade Ciiy when
lliere are neither passengers nor freight
fnr lhat, am lilt toils center, his reply
was, "why certainly, Just come right
lhrough and holler so I'll know ils all
right," "Conn* right thinugh anil
holler," and delay a stage-load of pas-
sengers and mails two hours on their
way (or rather out of it) to satisfy the
whims of a" newly appointed government official who has got. a had cuse of
"swell head." We wonder who^pulled
[he strings to get a live department to
make such an ass of itself. To satisfy
the query, conveyed in the last, sentence of the Miner's essay nn the ad-
ministration of the Canadian customs,
wilh the working of which of course
a residence of two years on this side of
the line has made it thoroughly conversant, I will quote Sec. 33, of the
Customs Act: . . . "aud every
'• person whosoever so arriving in Can
" nda from any port or place out ol
" Canada, on foot or otherwise, and
" having wilh him or In his charge or
" custody, any goods, whether such
" goods are dulialili* or not, shall come
" to the Custom house nearest to th
" point at which he crossed the frontier
" Hue, or to the station of lhe officer
" of Customs nearest, lo such point, if
" such station is nearer thereto Ihnn
" any Custom house, liefore unloading
" or in any manner disposing of the
" same, and there make a report in
" writing lo the collector or proper
'• officer of customs."
This is what, the Miner calls
satisfy 1 he whims of a newly-appointed
government official wilh a had case of
'swell head'." Previous to its uext
attempt to malign officials fur lining
1 heir slated duty, I would advise it
Miner to (1) study Lindley Mni-rayiand
learn that "why, cerliiinly," "right,
through,"and "hullcr-so I'll know," are
idioms peculiar to that part of Ihu
Aiiiericiin continentsbulh of lhe 41)1 h
paiallel, and are not generally em
plnyid in conversation in this country;
(2) to study Ihe Golden Rule and learn
that Grand Forks isnot "lhe only pebble on the beach"; (3) to employ
"devil" to correct, ils pi-oofs ; (4) to go
hack to school and learn how to spell;
(5) lo tell the truth, yea, even if it he
ahout Cascade Cily, Ihal red rag to
the huh of* the universe (with
emphasis on the 11) Grand Forks ; and
(0) to put another query to itself, viz.,
as to who could have heen responsible
In first place for the transfer of
Customs Officer Gilpin lo Grand
Forks, thereby necessitating Ihe appointment which has caused the "active
volcano" (he "Grand Forks Miner,"
lo erupt such a mass of had English in
one shot I. article.
These and other considerations I
commend to your "esteemed conleni-
pot-ary,"and would advise that in the
future, a little more Circumspection he
observed, iu al tacking offlci.ils of eilher
Provincial or Dominion Governments,
or some day the Miner may find itself
in an extremely uncouiforlahle position
as a result of its unjustifiable conduct.
Thanking you for the space given in
which to allow tne to say a word in
behalf of the newly-appointed officer
at Cascade Cily, who is now placed in
a posilion in which it is not. politic
for him lo rush Into print. I remain,
Mr. Editor
Your obliged,
A Duty Payer.

MINING   NOTES.
Mr. E. C, Brown is prospecting the
Lancaster cluim, situate north of the
Marguerite, in Deadwood camp. Similar ore—iron aud copper—occurs on
this claim to that met with on the
Anaconda, which is in the nuni* neighborhood.
A one-fourth interest in the Amanda
and Aimer mineral claims, situate in
Long Lake camp, has been sold hy Mr.
James Dyer, of Rossland, to Mr. F, W,
Godval, of Pincher creek, Ihe slated
consideration heimt the sum of $050.
The shaft that the Pasadena G. M.
Co. is having sunk on one of its claims
in Greenwood cainp is now down about
70 feet, Commencing on some iron-
stained rock a smooth wall was followed down, mineral coming in as
depth was attained. A little copper
now shows as well as iron, and the
manager Mr, J, Punch, looks for u
decided Improvement before the 100-
foot level is reached.
The conditions upon which Ihe Ath-
elston mineral claim, in Wellington
camp, owned by Mr. John Mack, of
Spokane, has been bonded by Mr. Geo.
T. Crane, also of Spokane, ure I hat the
sum of $15,000 shall lie paid by the
{litter lo the former in Ihree testal*
ments, viz., $3,000 on Jan. 1st, 1808;
$2,00(1 on Sept. 1st, 1898; and $10,000on
Dec. 1st, 1808. Development work is
to he carried on continuously for six
months from the 1st lust. Jhe Athel
slan is bounded on ihe west, by the
Bulla; otillie north by Ihe Mollle
Piichaid uinl Davenport, aud on the
.-rt**t l*y the .l„,:k !***( olmmn.
The I iniiul on the Hidden Treastii
Deadwood camp, is now in nearly 60
feet. As it has lieen driven through
wash, limbering hus been foundjneces-
sniy. Mineral Is showing iu'Ihe face,
hiltil is not expected lhat the ledge
will lie met. with until Ihe tunnel has
been extended tu nearly double tlle
presenl distance. Mr. J. H, Morrison
Is directing Ihe work, which he is confident  "-ill give g I  lesults.    The
owner of this claim and Ihe adjoining
Gold Bug, Mr. A. Drucker. M. P. for
Northampton, England, will pi-obahly
pay Boundary Creek another visit,
early in the coming year.
Work has lieen temporal ily suspended on the Snowshoe, in Greenwood
cnmp, now tinner bond to Mr. Patrick
Clark, of Butte, Montana. A shaft,
has been sunk 70 feet and at that depth
a crosscut has lieen run about 20 feel.
It. is staled that a fine body of ore has
been opened up and that the promising
indications of perinance given near the
surface are apparently being confirmed
as depth is gained. It Is currently reported that a steam plant for further
sinking uses is heing obtained, the
water being loo heavy for liailing by
means of a hand windless with any
regard to economy of labor, money,
and time.
Two important mining deals arc
reported to have taken place last, week.
One was Ihe bonding for $35,000uf the
Oolcondagrniip of five claims, owned
byMr. J. 0. Haas M. E. and Hon. Geo.
E.Foster.M.P. and the adjoining Gold
Bed claiiu.mvned by Mr. Haas only,
by Mr. P. 0. Stoess, M. K„ of Spokane
—is is understood for the B. C. Developinenl Co, of London, England,
and the other lhe purchase by Mr. ,1.
E, Boss, also of Spokane, of all of
Messrs Kan-ell anil Ml goon's mining
nterests.in Boundary Creek district.
The.laller report is, however, not yel.
confirmed, Want of space prevents
particulars being given this week of
Ihe several pioperlies involved.
The Vancouver World recenlly pub-
lished the following: "The well-known
Jewel -nine iu Long Lake camp,
Boundary, has resumed operations,
after a suspension of several months.
Leslie Hill is ill charge. The Jewel is
one of the hesl .developed pipoeities in
lhe camp, {javlnga 100-foot, tunnel ami
a drift of over 80 feet," The amount
of underground work done oil the
Jewel is very much understated there
being a shaft 1H0 feel in depth, from
which, at the 120 foot level, adrift, has
been run 1011 fee I in an easterly dit-
lion and 200 feet in Ihe opposite direction. However since the World clips
the few items of Boundary Creek news
it publishes, Its Ignorance of the district is notsurpising. Even Ihe News-
Advertiser, which however is enterprising enough to nay a resident cor
respondent, occasionally falls into a
hole when it goes oulside of his contributions. Only the oilier day it placed
Ihe Jewel as a Grand Forks mining
property, when as a matter of fact,
il is about 30 miles by a good wagon
road from that lovvn to the inine,
whilst it is only nine miles from Greenwood.

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D. A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches j from this 8,(153 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.15 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 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 'nrger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites,
The "G. A. R." has a 30-foot shaft
Bunk on a 2-foot vein, heayily mineralized wilh an intimate mixture of Iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
8ilverglance. Theflnest piecesofwiresil*
verfound onBoundaryCreek were taken
from Ihis shaft. Aveinge assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 ozt. silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return-$15.05 gold and 180 4-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" Is a 10-fuot
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein has heen opened
up liy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, being one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs inlo the main ledge as a spur, nn
whicli a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $411.35 gold'
17J ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "8. F." lies letweed the G. A. R.
and D. A., in the direction of the strike
on the G. A. R. vein. This local ion has
en made on a vein of pyrrbotite.
The "O. B." has two distinct veins I
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and generaljdiaraeter would seem lo
he the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
heen done to make this conclusive,
The second vein | has*' af present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a'conservative sampling hy Mr, 8. S. Fowler, M, E. gave
$20.00 in gold,
On the "8. H. B.".are two converging veins of copper and iron pyriles,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10J ozs., copper 11.98 per cent., or
$40.41 for all values.
The " Fred D." was' located' in De
ceinber, 1895, more as ground for a
hasis for mining operations for the
oilier claims limn for Its present value,
although;! here is, little doubt thatjthe
largeSvein'Jon; Ihe O. B, runs through
it. There Is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The ",T, A. C." has a large iron-
capping running through itjfrom the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
lhe ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10.injgo)d.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done on
them.

This company i.s registered under the
Companies Act, 1890, and amending
acts, in the office of the Registrar in
Victoria, B. C, for 1,500,000 shares at
$1.00, non- assessable, of which a
portion of the Treasury stocK is now
offered at 10 cents a share on applica
cation to the company.

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.
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 Kimtoly 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, Full particulars of both mineral claims and
town lots will be given upon application to the
