lo Vancuuver was in connecliou with
tin- ti
"Another very promising properly
owned hy Ihe company is ihe Boo Ton
in Jackson Creek hash), neat- Kaslo.
This is also a galena proposition, ami
is very rich, assays of 1,000ounces having lieenohtalned, This mine achieved
considerable notoriety hy heing jumped
n number of limes, and for three years
there was litigation over it, Tins insistent jumping dipt, Adams considers
a proof of ils value, hut now all liiisl t-tiggle foe ownership is al. an end, as
iin- company has nhiained a crown
grant,   Other properties owned hy the
 ipnny are situated on   lhe North
Fork of Salmon River and on Kruger
mountain, in Fairview camp, the latter
heing a free milling proposition,
"As lo Ihe milling future of liiilish
Colutuhla, Captain Adams is very
hopeful, The Boundary Creek dial rial,
In which he Is also largely Interested,
he regards ns (becoming iiiinlngcauip,
hut until railway fncililiesareprovided,

The Slump in Silver,
"The decline of silver naturally
makes lho silver ininers of the Slocan
feel a lillle hire," said a mining man
from that district in Spokane recenlly,
"hut lhey are keeping n stiff upper
lip, as a rule, and fortunately lliere are
many mines In that district that can
afford to ship, even I hough silver go
much lower, Some of them ate quite
cheerful over llie outlook, and do not
seem to he downcast on account of
the rapid slump in the price of Ihe
while metal. Scott McDonald of the
Payne inine, is one of ihese. Of course
hi'depreciates the loss which the decline necessarily causes, hut he says
thePayne will continue to ship without i\ thought of stopping until silver
reaches 25 cents, and will make apiollt
at any price above that Hgure. The
conditions are hetter in the district
than they were lust year. Freight is
less, and treatment charges are reduced
together making a snving which mny
he safely estimated at $2 over last
year. Improved wagon roads to most
of the mines, as well ns Ihe establish-
inenl of concentrators ou some of the
big ones, tend load.1 lo the profits of
the miner, and make up in some degree for the rapid decline uf the pro-
duet. Lend is now quoted ahout $11,00,
and di'ducllug the duly of $1.60, the
net price lo the Canadian mine operator is $2.10. The duly was only one-
half so large lasl year. but. when we
remember lhat lead was scarcely
quoled above $2.25, it will he seen that
the miner is hetter off with the high
tariff at the advanced price than with
low duty and low market. The Slocan
mine owners muy gel. the blues
und mny also complain ahout tin
the loss of profit under existing conditions, Imt it is safe to say that lhey
will go ahead milling and shipping
their ore unless conditions arise that
are not now apprehended,"

The Geologists and Miners.
Mr. Reginald Murray, who for 30
years .vns a government geologist in
the mines department of Victoria,
Australia, in a lecture recently delivered made some very forcible statements regarding the. relallnn of ge*
olngy to mining, suy the Metal Miner.
He spoke of I he fact Ihnt hut a few
years ago the geologist, wus not in
favor wilh the miner, Iuu I hut the
feeling now is very much changed.
This is evident lo every person connected with tlle mining industry, Imt
the feeling against the geologist [a mil
enliri-ly eradicated, even if ihere is a
great change for Ihe heller, us compared wiih lhe feeling IX) years ago,
Tlieie is still too much opposition
shown the geologists uud his opinions
l.y tunny miners, As Mr. Miiriaysiiiil:
"Tin. geoliigisls colled his fuels froui
lhe. miller, und, nud from his ni.iiv
extended range of observation he is
enabled to reason with greiiteriiecuraey
ihnn the miner wilh a more limited
experience can expect to he, however
intelligent lie may be."
When lliis is iviiieinbered it can
readily be seen lhat the miner and
geologist, can mutually trust and
assist one another. In support of this
Jlr. Murray said: "Every great mining
Held presenls it own peculiar fealures.
The nilner accustomed to the Sllttrliin
slates and sandstones of one mining
region does nut ai Hrst think much of
the auriferous .-uality of the more recent volcanic rocks of anot her region,
which may contain rich quarlz veins.
"A knowledge of the elementary
principles of geology cannot fail to he
nf greal. service to everyone engaged
in mining. This does not imply thai
he should be conversant wilh a lot of
unpioiniiincahle names, hut simply a
general knowledge of the conditions
under which rocks have been formed,
the various operating forces, mechanical or chemical, gradual or sudden,
and the general relation of one group
of rocks to another, Many miners,
thoroughly good and experienced in
practical work, entertain most crude
ideas as In llu. operating causes uf (he
phenomena which lhey encounter.
Pur iusliinee, they nflen ascribe to
violent, action, a physical structure
which is simply due to denudation."
Such assumptions are often so mis*
lending as In materially affect the success if a milling venture, Therefore
tbe opinion ofa man .villi suine knowledge nf geology is essential, if the
miners wants mure certainly in their
work ihnn is possible when luck only
is depended upon.

DESCRIPTIO   N.
On the "D. A," is a vein nlioul 20
inches wide, willi it pay-streak,of 4 to
12 inches | from this 8,(151' His. of ore
wns shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.16 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs,,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is being
driven on this vein fi-oni wliieli ore is
being taken. On the snme property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. R." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, lienyily mineralized with an Intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyriles, galena, blende and
silvei-gliiiice. The finest piecesof wiresil-
verfoiiiidoiiBoundiiryCreek were taken
from lliis shaft. Aveiage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 oz... silver; also $8.1X1
gold and 150 nzs. silver and one, the
latest {return—$15.03 gold and 100 4*5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyriles. This vein has been opened
lip hy 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 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 $40,115 gold,
17J ozs, silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "S. F." lies l.elweed the G, A. R.
and ti. A., in the direcl ion of the strike
on lbe (J. A. R, vein. This local ion has
heen made on a vein of pyriholite,
The "O, B," has two distinct veins '•
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and geueral^charucter would seem lo
be the siinie.'vein as that on lhe Big
Ledge, although sufficient bus not
been done to make this conclusive,
The second vein lias at, present a
width nf nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gnld from $4.00
to*$170,63, while a conservative sampling by Mr, S. S. Fowler, M. E, gaye
$20.00 iu gold.
On llie",S. II. B." are two converging veins of copper aiidviriin [pyrites,
on which work is now lieing'dnne. An
average assay gave, gold $1,50, silver
10} ozs., copper 11.1)0 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
The "Fred D." was locnled 111 De
cemher, 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for lbe
olher cliiiins than for ils present value,
although;!here is lillle doubt lhat lbe
large vein uu lbe O. B. runs lhrough
It, There is a small vein of galena ou
litis claim,
The "J. A. C." has a large irnn-
rapping running lhrough it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
lhe nre carries a considerable percent
age of of enpper and $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but ns yet very little development work has been dime uu

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 CREEK CITY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes o
travel- to Long Lake, Pass Creek ancl 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 ancl residence purposes. There arc
now good openings for several kinds of businesses
and the company will give cxery 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 ancl
town lots will be given upon application to the
BOUNDARY CREEK MINING AND MILLING CONPANY, LTD.
GREENWOOD  CITY, B. C.
