A  SPLENDID  SHOWING.
Recent development work ou llie
Highland Queen claim in Providence
camp has disclosed u fine ven. .if ore
some two feet wide in the bull nlll uf
Iheshaft. The shaft, which has only
recenlly been stitked, is now down a
depth ofa liltle over 20 feel, On tlie
surface lhe vein of ore showed a width
of from II lo 18 Inches.   As iu many
oilier inslanccs, lhe snrfn re on Ihis
claim was highly oxidized and gave
only slight Indications of whal its
character would be as depth was attained, It tuts ulreudy assumed u very
solid form, the ganglia lieing a
whitish  blue quurlz, heavily hnprrg-
No argument is so forcible us official
figures lo show the progress Inking
place in any district, and when the
records arc appealed to il is found that
during the year 1806 the development
nf the mining industry in ihe Boundary Creek district made wonderful
strides. A comparison with the
records of lliree filmier years will show
t lint ill 18SKI more records were uiude
than in the three years preceedtng put
together, in 1893. 181)4,18115 and 180(1
Ihe number of free miner's certificates
issued ul the Midway office were 101,
2(12, 151 und 050, respectively. In loca
tion lecords an enormous increase is
noticeable, as lbe figures sliind 102, OH,
771 and 1,270. The certificates of work
issued were (1(1, 85,140 and 66B. The
really cruciclal tesl. of a district's progress may be said, however, to be more
clearly Indicated by the number of
transfers of properly whicli lakes
place, und in this respect it is found
ibnl in 1893 50 transfers of mineral
claims were made; in 1804, II; in 1805,
214, and in 1800. 718,

I-M^Ol'FIFTIES.
The properties, which arc absolutely
owned by the Company, consist of
eight claims lymg in a group and
named as follows: "The Ered. II.,"
"S, H. B„" "Dig Ledge," "D. A„"
"0. B„" "ti. 1'.," "(J. A. H."and ",l.
A. C," being fully shown and explained
in the Map Plan annexed.
DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A." is a vein aboul 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak .of i to
12 inches; from this 8,063 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.16 guld per ton, silver 71 7-10 ozs,,
and 2 per eenl. lead. A tunnel is being
driven on Ihis vein from which ore is
being laken. On the Bnme property is
a larger vein (ipiarlz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The "G. A. II." bus a 30-fool shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with nn intimate mixture of Iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
illverglance. Thoflnesl piecesofwiresil-
verfoundonlloiuidiiryCrcek were I nkcn
fi-niii this shaft, Avcinge assays frum
different place*, across the vein gave
98,00 guld, .VI iw. silver; also $8.0(1
gold and ISl ozs. silver and one, the
latest return $16,08 gold nnd 1004-5
ot.h. silver per toll.
On   the " llig Ledge"   is n   10-foot
quart'/, vein, mineralized with Iron
pyrites, This vein has been opened
up hy cross-cuts on lhe surface for SHI
feel.     A  narrower   vein    has   been
^P
m
opened up, being one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven, Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs, silver, and $40.36 gold,
17i ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The " O. B." has two distinct teins;
one 26 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem to
he the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has al. present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.63, while a conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fuwler, M. E, gaye
$20.00 in gold,
On the "8. H. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.60, silver
10J ois„ copper 11.00 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
The "Fred D." was located in December, 1896, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its present value,,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein on tho O. B, runs through
it. Thero is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The " 8. F." lies bet weed tlie G, A. R.
and D. A., in the direction of the strike
on llie (I. A. R. vein. This location has
bean made on a vein of pyrrhotite.
Tlie "J. A. 0." has a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
The ore carries a considerable percentage of of copper antl $10 in gold,
