ROCK  IN   PLACE.
The Moaning Conveyed by the Miners Who
Coined the Term.
W. 8. tfeyes, M. E„ vice-president
of the California State Mining hiircau,
in discussing Ihe subject of "rock in.
place," gives further testimony that
Theodore Davie's famous Paris Belle
decision is at variance with common
sense.   He says i
"I premise liy saying Ihul, geologically speaking, nn ruck can possibly be
out uf place If it lie where nature nnd
lhe work of the elements have put if;
and further, the term 'ruck In place'
has no upplicaliiii, to pincers, nor, in
my judgment,, is it nt all necessary to
theorize as to the origin when ilclluing
terms. As nc expert ou the slund, 1
have many times been obliged lo
answer the question, and have invariably replied as follows; 'Il is any rock
mineralized or miiniiicralizcd, m Ihe
solid moss of the mountain olher than
float.' 1 have further historic precedent for this contention.
•'Mr. George D. D. Huberts, an old
time mining man, formerly of this
city, stated to me that the origin of
the phrase was as follows: Late in the'
fifties and at the very Hrst meeting of
the miners of Grass Valley in (his
state to adopt rules noil regulation
the.question arose as to what wns
locatable. Some maintained thai de
tached masses of mineral might, if
valuable, Is? the subject. „f location
But it was decided in the ncgnliye on
the grounds that float, technically
speaking, that is, in the sense used by
miners, was not in place in the solid
body of Ihe iniiuiituiii. Hence my
deHnitlon."—Nelson Tribune,

Mr. A. V. Cuppnge was in Midway
Tuesday on police business. He returned the same duy to Camp McKinney where he is engaged hunting
up clues relative to last week's highway robbery.
Geo. Guess returned from a business
trip to Anarchist Mountain, Fairview
and Camp McKinney on Wednesday
last. He found no trace nf the gold
bricks recenlly lost between McKinney
and ltock Creek.
1 Wings," the inimitable, of the Vancouver World, passed through Midway
on Wednesday. "Wings" suys that

Mr. W. G. McMynn returned horiie

he was questioned on all sides by
people of Ihe coast cities about the
prospects of Boundary creek, nnd ,-,
very strong interesl wus manifested iu
this district.

Commenting on the recent acl ion uf
the directnrs of Ihe Anglo-Americuii
Gold und Platinum Hydraulic company, the Province applicably remarks I
The Anglo-American Gold and Platinum Hydraulic Mining company, in-
inrporaled for the purposes of currying
ou the objects which its name hn*
plies In lhe Siniilkameen has been, according to a rirculiir forwarded to the
shareholders, 'disincorporated and dissolved.' The ncc,units iiiilimltlcd sbuw
that the company disbursed $62,082,68

" Certainly eighty-three dollars all
told is not much nf a result to show
fur an oxpenilil ure uf $511,088.87 and we
frunkly confess that we do not under*

Since the above wns penned, wo

searching enquiry intu the matter, and
If It should be found l hul n fraud hns

SURVEY ERRORS RECTIFIED.
Western Alining World: A press
dispatch from Port Townsend says
that the richest gold placer mines ill
Alaska huve been transferred lo Canadian territory, and miners are now
paying u lux tu lhe British authorities;
The territory in question is from three
to four miles in width, und embraces
rich placer claims on Glacier and
Miller creeks, which, heretofore, were
supposed tu he in Alaskan territory.
Tlle transfer of lhe territory is Ihe result of a re-survey recently made.
Captain William Moure, the Canadian
mail currier between Victoria nud Fort
Cuduliy, N. W. T., has just returned
from taking the Hrst mail tu lhe
Yukon miners on British terrilory,
Errors in the old survey were discovered late last autumn, and during
llie winter Mr. Ogilvie, who now has
charge uf a corps of British engineers,
Woe engaged in locating the boundary
between the twu countries mul made
corrections, transferring a strip of
territory from three lo seven miles
wide from Alaska to Ciiniula. Over
two hundred miners aie affected.
Captain Moure says there can lie no
doubt as to the correctness of the new
survey. All Miller and Glaciei creeks
and purls of several ulher streams,
rich in gold, are now claimed by the
British authorities.
THE MINING EXPERT DEFINED.
A mining 'expert' is a mini who
knows nearly as much about rocks as
Ihe Divine providence whu placed
Ihem, said a miner from the north lhe
other day, who had come in contact
with a cheap variety. Doubtless hud
he been present at the time of creation
he would have rendered valuable assistance in setling up the geological
part of the concern. He can 6ee clear
lhrough a mountain and tell exactly
what it contains, and that, luo, before
he hus left the nearest hotel, lie can
also see through the being picturesquely known in the wesl. as the 'sucker,'
und has been known to see clear
through a capitalist who had money to
invest in promising mines. The 'expert is usually well dressed, wears
corduroy leggings and carries a gold
natch, He talks calmly nf porphyry,
(limiti- und gnu,ila, mingling remarks
about pyriles, guli'iin, gray copper nnd
refractory ores until the listener is as-
louislied ut the vast knowledge displayed uud confesses lu himself,   with
Bhume, the colossal proportions of his
ignorance,

TRAIL AND BOUNDARY ORE COMPARED.
Tlle Boundary creek coriespnnilent
III lhe Russian,! Miner writes: W. W.
Gibbs, an assayer nf Annconda, has
been making some very Ini,'resting
comparisons between the newer claims
located In tho Trull ami Rossland district*, uud claims  recenlly   located  In
Boundary creek district. The assays
of 60 different claims were sent to Iilm
by ,i friend in Rowland jusl as lhey
happened In be made and Without nny

as follows: Trail creek, 50 ussais,

Boundary creek. 60 assays, gold $11.(10
lo $16.00, copper 1 per cent, to 10 per
cent. Mean vuluo of nil Trail creek
assays was equal to one-third nf the
mean value uf all Boundary creek
assays,
ON  THB  TRAIL.
Every effort is being iiiiulo by lhe
authorities io discover the author of
last week's highway robbery. Valuable
lime wus lost in llnding the sput
where the theft look place, and it is
conceded that a mistake was made in
not obliging Mr. McAuley to return to
assist the ofllcers in llieir search. The
saddle hags In which the gold bricks
hnd heen placed were found a few
days ago hidden in a hush. They con"
tuiiicd fro empty whiskey bottles, and
these may serve ns a clue, if their sale
ran lie triced to any particular person

A STRANGE APPOINTMENT.
In the lust British Columbia Gazelle
the announcement is made lhat Mr.
G. M. Sprout of Sanilon, has been appointed Stipendiary Magistrate fur the
County of Kootenny, and the Kellle
Kiver mining division of Yule District,
Upon reading this announcement we
were struck wilh the ludlcrousness of
the same, for well do we hear in mind
that either for some years past 1ms the
above naHied gentlemen been perpetrating a fraud upon the public, or has
been a stipendiary magistrate for, not
only the districts referred to, but
the province at large.
Allowing lhat no mistake has been
made in theaiinouiiceiiient, still a mistake has been made in appointing n stipend iury magisli ate tu represent two
districts so widely separated by natural
barriers, as Id make it impossible for
hin. In render elfeclive service in inure
than une district, without enluiling an
enormous amount Of expense upon the
Government. If the executive were
thoroughly conversant wilh Ihe geography of southern Yale nnd Kootenay,
the fact would he immediately recognized that two appointments instead
of une is what is really necessary, so
that lbe County of Kootenny may
enjoy the services of a resident stipendiary magistrate, and the Kettle
river division of Yale enjoy likewise the suine,

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Inaccuracy of telegraphic despatches which appear in the piminriul

There are to he a series of debates
upon the silver question at tlie Reading Ru"in. The silver quesl inn is uf-

Quite a liltle gold dusl is being

The Culdslreani ranch completed

certainly indicating guud intelligent
farming,
ll is ruin..red urnuuil town (hat one
of Vernotl's principal families is ahnut
to secede from the English Church to
enter tlie Roman Catholic fold. A
number of surmises are promulgated
as Iu the reason of their taking this
step. Can the name have anything to
do with it?
The larger fruits un this ranch are
now coining Intu ihe market, aud the
yield this year is remarkably prolific
for so young pn orchard, especially the
apples, a large number of varieties of
whichnewtn this country, are thriving
and bearing well, und from nil indicn-
1 ions in a few years time this extensive
orchard will he lhe most valuable porlion of Lord Aberdeen's estate.
The City Fathers are nt lust thoroughly aroused I'U the water question,
and now seem really anxious to obtain
an adequate supply of good aqua purii
frum Ihe besl source. There are three
pnssil le sources of supply, viz, Long
Lake, Deep creek, and the springs lying
to llu, uorlh-cast of the town. The
Council are going tlie right way to

competent men to report oh the variuus
schemes. This water quest inn is u
seiiuus one, and ns the cost of bringing
in a good supply will be considerable,
it behooves Ihem lo have the hest.
There is no doubt that in a very short

people to huve this grave matter settled, nnd as it affects so nearly every
citizen, should be carried hy acclamation.

A goodly amount of speculation is
being indulged in as to whether certain towns now in existence will lie
given the go-by when the railway
cames along, should it be built. Ru
mora are life that more than one com
lunation has lieen entered into hetween
railway magnates and residents of
Grand Prairie. The future will shew
whether or not thisc rumors have any
foundation in fact*.
The Midway Thirteen club give
notice that next week they will ask for
tenders for the construction of thirteen
cottages, Each tender to be accompanied liy a photograph of the proposed building, and a three cent postr
«Re stamp as a guarantee of good faith.

The provincial government have
beefi Ail several occasions petitioned to
Imild a school house at Grand Forks.
The need for such nn Institution is
very urgent. 'There are at the present
time between thirty and forty children
of school age living in the town or in
its vicinity. In itself this should prove
a sufficiently strong argument with
the department tn favorably consider
the petitions. The school now attended
by the children from nil partf of the
prairie is several miles distant from
Grand \ Forks, consequently in bad
weather the benches are deplorably
empty.
Hitherto the licensing court for the
district has heen convened al, Osoyoos,
Until lately little if any exception
could he taken to the fact, With the
more rapid development, however, of
this end of the distriet, Osoyoos is no
longer suitable, nnd- il, is very necessary that, a change should he made in
favor of Midway, as a more central
spot where the court, could he held.
Kearly all the applicants for licenses
live in Boundary creek or Keltle river
towns, and, to them, a journey to
Osoyoos means a loss of three days,
with the consequent expenses—no inconsiderable consideration to a man in
business.
.Some kind of disease is making its
presence felt among the horses of the
neighborhood, several ruses of sickness
being reported, and some deaths having taken plarc. The uninitiated are
ready as usual lo declare the disease
pink eye, hut whether or not it is sn
we are not in a position to say. Of
whatever nature the disease, certain is
it It is of a somewhat virulent 'nature,
ns it. seems to attack the animals very
suddenly, Should the disease continue
to spread it would he well If the gov
eminent would pay attention to the
matter, as in nearly every Instance tho
horses attacked are of the draught
class, and In a district so dependent
upon freighting as this one is, thisclass
of animals are not convenient ly to lie
spared.
People whn grumble at the rate
charged by freighters bringing in
goods from Penticton would be likely
to modify their views if they had any
experience of the hardships, and it is
not too much to add, dangers of the
trip. Then the liability to loss from
breakdowns, had weather or from general accidents, is, to freighters, a constant factoi to he considered. We
learn that on their last trip both Mr.
McKenzleahd Alex. McDonald, freighting for Armstrong k Lawder, lusi each
a valuable h.irse. About four miles
from Penticton, on the return journey,
McDonald's team became frightened
and bolted down a hill. One of the
wheelers got entangled in the harness
and the heavily laden wagon passing
over the animal, hi,ike its hack. One
of MeKenzie's team was also so severe-
Mr. Arundel, a brother of Lord Arundel of Arundel, England, and Mr.
Wollnston, brother ot Mr. Green's
partner, ore spending a few days with
the surveying party on the hanks of
Boundary creek. They have been
prospecting in the Slocan, and are now
ou Iheir way back to Victoria.
A session of the Justices' ot the
Pence Court is now lieing held, and an
enquiry being taken into the case in
which Messrs. Ewen Keithley, Tom
Humprey and John Lind .are charged
wilh lhe forgery of a document, purporting to be a bill of sale of a cerluin
mineral claim known as lhe Bonnie
Bell, The proceedings will be published in our next week's issue, if the scribe
cnn glean them out of court,
It is rumored around that the rival
stage lines running between Boundary
creek and Marcus are waging u rate
war, und as a consequence fares have
been reduced lo as low as $2, If the
Spokane Fruit Fair were In session
we should he inclined to believe that
acoalision had heen entered into between its iiuinageiiieiit and the stage
owners, whereby virtually a free ride
could be tendered visitors lo Spokane
from this section, hulas it is not, we are
driven to the conclusion that the stage
line owners are gyrating around seeking an eusy and expeditious method
of becoming bankrupt.
The Spokane Falls and Northern
Railway company are building a sta-
liim house, or in other words a depot,
at Bossburg. Ill future, it is understood, lhe company will make this the
point of divergence for all goods and
passengers destined for the Kettle
river country. By this means some
nine or ten miles will be cut off the
journey between the railway and
Kettle river points, and this being the
case, u consequent reduction of freight
and passenger rates may he looked for
as soon as the route is changed,
Everything is being done by this rival
railway to the 0. P. R. to foster the
trade of the Ll,,miliary creek country,
and if the 0. P. R. are not up and
doing, and hy breaking down the
natural barriers lend greater assistance
to the transportation ot freight and
passengers from Penticton to Boundary, they will find this more active
competitor will not only secure, as
lhey always have done, a good share
of public patronage, hut will even cut
into the trade the C. P. H, enjoys at
I he present time.

MINING  NOTES.
Taylor and Rimlieiger are doing development wurk on the Columbia claim
iu Wellington camp. The property is
looking well.
Kelly and the Frazer brothers are
working on the Sinilah claim iu Wellinglon camp, sinking a shaft, which
is down 10 feet and in 2 feel of good
ore,
Messrs, Taylor and Rumberger are
working on the Columbia, in Wellington camp. The claim, always a promising prospeel, is Improving as development pruceeds.
Messrs. Kelly and Frazer Bros., aie
sinking a shaft ou tlie Sinilah, Wellington camp. The shaft is now down
tan feet, with two feet of solid, rich-
looking ore at Ihe bottom. The indications are that lhe ore body wil'
widen wilh deplh, and Ihis tlie owners
intend to prove.
After a season of inactivity men are
to he pul to work on the Lust Chance
milling claim ill Skylark eamp. Last
week Mr. Reed wus in the district
making arrangements for the carrying
ou of the work, and it is understood
development will he carried on with
great   energy   when once   stinted.
Arrangements are being perfected
for the stocking of the Volcanic claim
upon the North fork of Kellle river
willi > capital of $20,000,000. The
company will have ils headquarters in
Spokane, and iiinong possible enterprises the company contemplate is the
erection of a smelter and refinery plant
on the property.
Between seyen and eight hundred
claims have been recorded up to the
present at lhe record office located at
Nelson on the Colville reserval ion.
Upon a goodly percentage of the claims
work is being prosecuted, aud as extremely good samples of ore are often
met witli, no doubt the future will
witness the development of some of
the pWlspect* at leasl into good mines.
Mr, Burns, the coll tract or having m
hand Ihu job of sinking the shaft on
tlie Old Iliillsldes claim in Green-rood
camp, is pushing the ivurk along with
Ills usual chiiraclerislic energy, and it
is now down a depth of about 40 feel.
The ore is ehangingils cliaraclei somewhat, as il is gelling softer. Whether
or not this indicates the near presence
nf water, It is hard to say. As far as
development has gone everything is
extremely satisfactory, providing the
assay returns of the ore is compatible
with the appearance of the property.
For the fourth lime recenlly the din*
inond drill lieing operated upon Ihe
Gold Drop claim, in Greenwood camp,
under Mr. Turner's direction, who is
the representative here of the company
holding the bond on the property,
The Montreal and British Columbia
Promoting and Prospecting Company,
has broken into ore at different angles
and depths. Up to the present it has
been extremely dilficul I to determine the
trend of the vein, owing trfihe formation and other features, lint now it
may safely be said, the drill, as it, were,
has caught on. and lhe result in the
iiture will be much more intelligent
prospecting. The last hole pul. down
broke into the ore body  on  Wednes-
has reliable data upon which to base
future operations. The width of the
vein or its ore value per ton were matters not enquired into, but enough is
known to warrant the statement that
at present everything moves satisfactorily at the Gold Drop camp.

NOTES FROM MARCUS.
From the PaciHo Patriot.
Herr John Wulflsohn, Keiserlich
Deiitscher consul of Vancouver, B. 0,
his privile secretary and, mining expert, are sojourning iu Marcus, looking over milling properties in lllis section with a view to investing here,
llerr WitllTsolili is a most pleasant
gentleman to uicet willi and in Ids
dealings -like a prince, lie is a "hale
fellow well uial" soil, of iiiiiii, anil
makes friends al. once with Ihose lie
has to do,
P. J. luglesly. foreman of the road
construction crew, Working up the
Kellle river valley road lo Grand
Forks, ivns iu Marcus Tuesdny on
business,   lle reports work progress'
nl the cut off. eight, miles from Marcus. The road is now ready fur u- a. l}u
short way, up us far as the sauil hill'
And iu luis connection we can mention
lhefactlh.it a petiliou is now being
formed to be presented to the commissioners In haye this road accepted
iis a county road. Eventually, we believe, jt Wjll he made tlle state roud.
This all means much for Marcus iu a
liusiness way, and much toward the
future development of lhat upper
country.
Jimmy Clark, • brother of Palsy
Clark of the War Eagle mine, was in
town a few days this Week on his way
to Greenwood City, where mining interests call him. He expresses confidence in the future of this region,
Alfred McKinney, the original discoverer of tin- Camp McKinney mine,
now of Boundary mountain, is spend,
ing a few days with old friends here.
He believes he bus u bigger tiling than
his original McKinney claims.

ACCIDENT TO A PROSPECTOR.
James Atwood met wilh a painful
accident last week while prospeel ing,
About two miles from caiffp.he slipped
nnd fell down a declivity injuring his
knee-cap seriously, Witli much dilll
cully he managed fo crawl slowly back
over lhe distance he hud previously
travelled. The limb is severely sprain
e.l und bruised, and It will be some
lime before its owner will recover from
all the effects of Ihe accident, Mr
Douglas not, unreasonably complains
of his bad luck which compels him
now both his partners are iiicap.icilat
ed, lo do three men's work, besides
forcing upon him additional duties for
which he had not bargained, those of
sick nurse and general hospital alten
danf.   It certainly is hard lines.

CROWN POINT BONDED.
Messrs. Atwnod and Wake have already bonded Ihe Crown Point, their
recent rich discovery on James creek.
Until the transfer is fully consummated
tlle present, owners do not wish the
details to be made public, hence it can
only he said that both the price and
lhe terms of the bond are eminently
satisfactory, and that everything
points to the deal lieing brought to a
successful termination,
