REPAIRING A SPECIALTY,

Tin* least said of the trull whieh lends
through Skylark to Greenwood camp
tlm better. It is only necessary lo slat,*
fm- tla> information of tliu general public ihnt to successfully nuik,-' llu* journey two things are essential -an active
hoi-si*iiutl a gooil temper, And it isa
mutter of sincere regret thai. Ihe gen.
tlemeii of tbe provincial legislature
tVpo SO cheerfully voted for the bur*
t'otviiig of the large sum to lm devoted
towards erecting mora comfortable
quarters ill wliieli tn carry on tin*
weighty affairs of the country, could
not first have been obliged to ride over
the trail (say) three times from Boss-
hart's cabin 'ti the Snowshne claim before determining upon the advisability
of saddling the prflyinee wilhadelit
for a practically non-i'ssenliiil work,
where money could have been spent
with a so much greater advantage to
the country in other ways, Who can
suy how long the development, nf the
Boundary creek mines lias been retarded by the failure of tlie puaviucial
govei'iiuieiit to recognize a fact, lib*
vimis in itself, ihal, before I owns can
grow, Ihe country must he. built up,
and, however fertile the country or
i-ii-li io the i-esoui't'i's of nature, until
good roads ntnl highways enable llie
settler or prospector to make use of
Ihese natural advantages, progress is
impossible. Although the government
have built ns nu excellent main trunk
mad through tlie district, It is now
I hue that steps should he taken loap-
propl'inle funds for llie purpose we
have itdvocali'd on severa! occasions,
the building of well-graded roudways
to the principal camps, and we trust
these appropriations will appeal- iu the
very next, estimates. Especially is a
good load needed to Greenwood ciijnp,
where pet-haps lie the largest deposits
of copper-gold ore iu lhe world. It
cannot now lm long before Ihis fact is
recognized. One of tlie most, note-
wot thy claims is the ptt-uiwinder, located mi the ilrd of August, 1891, by
Messes. Atwood und Scliofleld. The
claim has since bad un interesting
history, On lbe liii-d of July iti the
following vein1 Mr. Atwood sold bis
interest to his partner for $100—nil Iti-
significant enough sum, now lhe value
of the property is beginning to be discovered. In 181)2 Mr. Denzler bought
a half interest in the claim, and when
Mr. Scholield sold mil in the beginning
of Ibis year to Messrs. Farrell and
Midgeon for $5,000, he valued Ilis
share ns woftb $10,000. This sum was
later offered by Air. Smith, agent for
the purchasers of Mr. Srhnfiejd's interest on a bond; a cash stun of $1,000 having been given at. Ihe time of the transaction, and Hie balance to lie paid in
three equal installments, extending
over a period of t welve mouths. Simp
the transfer to Messrs. Farrell and
Midgeon, active work has been ill progress, upon which n large number of
men have been employed, Shafts are
being sunk at different points on the
ledge, and we understand a thorough
assay lest is to he liinde, The main
shaft is down some fifty feel and lhe
showing at thu foot is excellent. The
assessment work of the former owners proved the ore body In lie sixty
fee'-, wide, with a well-defined foot
wall. Sainpleiissays which were made
for thein gave as high as $1X1 in gold
and eight pel- cent, ill copper j Imt
from nil accounts the ore gains in rich*
nees wilh depth. It is impossible to
give nt tbe present lime it mine detailed account of the progress of the
work, due to Ihi' fact that Messrs.
Fiiri'ell and Midgeon prefer thut (he
; matter should not he discussed, nud
I refused to give any Information,
Another claim a little further up
illii'trail is lbe Snowshoe, located by
|Mr, W. A. McDonald on ihe I8thof
April, 1808, who sold to Mr. T. Mi-Dun*
aid iu the following vein- for a .small
sum. Later Mr. Robert Denzler purchased a third Interest, Aft "I- seeing
the immense, size of (lle ore body,
which, thanks to the energy anil hard
| work of the proprietors, is for a considerable distance exposed IO view, on
the Snowshoe, one can have little
doubt of the future destiny of lhe
[claim'; und us Mi-. Denzler aptly re*
: marked when such a view was expressed to bill], lbe Snowshoe has all
thu "earmarks" In show thut il will
one day be a great producing mine.
Al the present lime two parallel ledges
bnve been discovered, and five cross,
cuts bnve been inn, tun (in lhe upper
ledge and three on Ihu lower. The
upper  ledge  tines  iinl  appeal' lo be
11101*6 Iiiiii] 30 feet witle, but on the
lower, incredible ns it may appear,'although a crosscut across the vein has
been made for a hundred feel, lhe further wall bus not yet been found. At
lbe bottom of the crosscuts can be
seen for the euthe length lhe well-
uiiiieialized ore matter, copper and
iron pyrites, currying gold. Before
reaching the ore a calcinaceims cupping must he removed, which, however,
is very much easier to work through
Ihiiii the iron cup, whicli is so coin*
inoiily found covering mineral veins
In the dish-Id, Mr. Denz'er wus good
enough to tuke um- representative tn
lhe shaft, where lbe porphyry walls
can Im seen well defined, taking ll
punfiill of dirt ft'oin a jailing ledgeof
probably decomposed rock, be washed
il. in lbe water lying nt llie fool of the
shaft*, and when tne superfluous dill.
luui been removed, at the bottom of
the pan wus gold enough to cover a
twenty-five cent piece. Assays from
different places in the claim huve been
made nn several occasions with Ihe result showing fi om $11 to $00 in gold und
nbout, 8 per cent, iu copper, The pro*
prielors of lhe Snowshoe huve already
done enough work to entitle them to a
crown grant, and no doubt this will he
shortly applied for. Meanwhile lhey
are steadily developing the property,
which promises to lie one of the best
ill the camp.

Unlucky Prospectors.
Three men have been steadily employed fol' the past few weeks running
drifts und tunneling on the right bank
uf Boundary creek, a little morn than
half a uiilefi'oui Midway, witli the expectation of finding pay gravel iienr
the bed lock. From the excellent
colors that were obtained, lhey lind
every reason to believe that liy sinking in a spot wliieli was at one lime
the creek bed, gold would be found in
paying quantities, Three tunnels, nne
of which is twelve feel long, wen run,
but il. was found lhat Ihe gravel do-
pnsit wns so small (but wages could
nnl be made by working il. Tlie fuel,
nf the,mutter is that the ground was
thoroughly worked nuny yeui's ago,
during lhe excitement nt Rock creek,
nnd what wns lefl by the white ininers
wns taken by lhe Chinese later. One
ol lbe pui'ly, however, is not yet satisfied lhat llie summer's labor bus been
useless, nnd while his partners have
abandoned the cluim, he still intends
In try what further perseverance will
bring. One hears a good deal of lhe
happy and free lifeof the prospector,of
his perfect Independence and ol his
often sudden leap into fortune, but tbe
other side of lbe picture is nol so
fieipienlly given — the hardships,
Ihe tedious tramps through difficult country, tbe disappointment
of unsuccessful search, Ihese lire things
rarely considered, in llie life of a
prospector there ure some prizes, but
more blanks. Taking the present instance ns n case iu poiul, lhe men
started iu tlie early spring from Mull-
I lua, Ibey prospected unsuccessfully
hi Granite Creek, lhe Siniilkameen
andTtilameen nnil Ibey were iu ibe
Okanagan, till finally lhey found
themselves In this district, Not only
is their small capital expended, llie
proceeds of several month's hard work
in the Montana mines, hut after undergoing hardships mid difficulties
worthy of African explorers, lhey return with absolutely bottling to show
for all.this expenditure of energy und
lime, und wilh Ihe dreui-y prospect of
Imitig again obliged to seek employment before they can tempt fortune in
another verdure,

The road between Rosslaud and the

owing to the not very high price of
Imps, pickers will only lie paid at the
rale ot 75 cents per box, instead of $1
as foi-inerly, At Ihis price it is questionable whether a sufficient number
of laborers call he hired to gather tbe
crop iu good season. One circumstance, hflH'ever, favors I he large growers and that is that many of the
smaller growers will not be in competition in the labor market, owing lo having lost their crops lhrough the devastation of their yards tbe disease which
lasl spring attacked the plants, totally
destroying thein.

The shaft is down 2(1 feet and a large
water wheel has been put ill position,
which is said to lie a very admirable
piece of work. The wheel supplies all
the power for pumping water and
