To the Editor of the Advance.
Sir,—During a visit, nf some week's
duration atthe coa»t, I liavr* hnd many
discussions of llu- railway problems
ihnt i-oni'iM-n Boundary Greek, li niay
inti'i-i-si your readers, if you ..ill pur-
uilt ilm insertion of a few remarks
upon ihis Important question,
There prevails iu Borne quarters an
impression thai the Canadian Pacific
Itailway art' in accord wilh Mr, lleiu/.e
iu Illseffort* to luiilil from lhe Coluuiliia river to lhe Boundary creek anil
l'l-niiriiiu ami tin* preliiiilnnry arrangements for this work aie being
pushed forward,
The Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern
tall way enterprise is in Ihe bauds of
earnest, energetic and practical men,
who are thoroughly alive to the importance of» I hroiigh line lu the eons!
along the southern border of the province. They-ire making active efforts
lo promote the luilldlng'of this road,
The favorable prospects fori lie erection
of a siiielter at Vancouver create a
strong public sentiment in favor of
this project, in addition to the natural
inleiest,of the merchants who desire
lose': suppllesjln the mining regions,
the eagerness of lho agriculturists of
the rich Fraser anil Chllli-uot districts
to get access to markets,
II, Is realized ihal lhe road to Pen-
lieton is only a partial solution of Ihe
railway pnilil on, furnishing a round
about menu of egress to the coast,
very lillle slimier lhau Ihe existing
route via llie Arrow lakes ami Revel-
stoke, ami il is claimed lhat. thai, the
extention of lh" rna.l frum Peiiliclon
to Vancouver is Ihe logical and invit-
ahle eoinplel ion of the railwny system.
It. is reasonable however llial Ihe
Canadian Pacific railway being nlmul
lo reach lhe Columbia river via Crow's
Nest Pass, should ohjecl lo llie control
of the remaing links for a through

of i-ooliol. Inslend nf granting heavy
subsidies In parlies who will liereilfler

ilie sensible course ul the province to

The greni success of government roads
iu Austrnljn, New Zi-ulund nnd in some
l'uirn|ii'un countries is nu encouragement to British Columbia to tuke lliis
slap in modern progress, which is
manifested to he sooner or later Ihe
practical solution of lbe railway problem, Why shiiulil mil llrilisii Ciiluinliia enrol herself among the enterprising people who arc coming lo Iho conclusion Ihnt lhey call handle Iheir own

Whatever may linlho means adopted
Ihe Impression prevails that next year
will certainly see Ihe arrungemeuls
perfected for Ihu construction of this
I ll rough road, The ueeessily for lls
existence and llie promise uf ils pi..Hi
leave no room for doubt of Its speedy
lu'i'iunplishment.
Now as in i In- mi ii id.- nf ihe Boundary population, il mnv be said llml,
..lule ii cerlaiii course is tube preferred

Let us look al the situation lo the

are such as lo warrant Ihc liuililing of

I be depth touched nn the ledge Is about
45 feet. Afler ahuul 40 feet had been

The Stickeen.Teslln Railway,
Says lhe News-Advertiser:—When
Mr. Shaughnessy, the Vice-President
of Ihe Canadian Pacific Railway, was
here recenlly, he told the Board of
Trndelhiil.il might rely oil his company Inking steps lo secure to the
coast cities of the province a good
share of Ihe trade with Ihe gold fields
in tin* Yukon districl. It would appear Ihal on his arrival in Montreal he
lost no time in laying ihe matter he-
fore the management of the company,
and as a result the company's Inenl
officials in Vancouver have already
received Instructions to lake the preliminary steps which will lead lo results of vast Importance tn the trade
of Vancuuyer,
There is nn question lhat the inter-
estsof the Dominion, and particularly
of the people of British Coluuiliia, Iiiiii Ihe opening up of a route fo the
Yukon guld llelds exclusively through
Canadian territory, In the short
space of lime lhat has elapsed since
llie rush of people to the Klondyke
commenced, and notwithstanding the
assurance from lhe authorities al
Wiishiuglon thul ibe liberal irualiueul
accorded to Americans in regnid lo
Iheir being given nil llle pliviledges
which llriiish subjects enjoy iu mining
matters, will l.e reciprocatid iu re-j
sped, lo any American Customs' regit-
Ial Ions in lhe territory between lin-
coastand the Canadian buuudarv, there
have been numerous complaints of the
arbitrary and vexations conduct of
Ibe United Stales' officials in the performance uf their duties. Wilh an all-
Canadian route, lliese drawbacks will
disappear.
Fortunately fnr Canadian inleresls,
Ihere appears lo he little duubl that
the route liy sl it-keen river and Teslin
lake can he inadu the most convenient,
cheapest, and quickest way l.y which
lo reach the Yukon gold fields, and lhB
Canadian Pacific Railway company
have been prompt, both to see this and
to take steps to make it available al
the earliest possible time.
The route hy whit-n it is proposed to
carry the tialllc to the gold fields will
he by sicauiei from Vancouver io the
point found to bu most convenient for
transhipment to steamer drawing so
little waler lhat they can pass tip the
Stlckeen river to Glenora. From Glen-
ora it is proposed to consti net a railway lu Teslin lake. Then down llie
lake and by lhe Yukon river other
Steamers will convey freighl and passengers Inlo I he heart uf the gnld fields.
Mr. Dui-hesncy will proceed norlh nl
once wilh a party III examine lhe roiilu
I'm- ilu- proposed railway, and, if found
feasible—as from the information already known, there is nut. much douhi
It Ih—in make Um preliminary survey

early last spring lhe above named
claim was bonded by the owner F. H.
Latimer tu Mr, Graven and this associated for lhe sum of $10,00(1, ten per
cent of whicli was paid down. As soon
as the Iniiul was laken upon the property, work was started, and was
carried on under the direcl ion of Mr.
Craven. Thedevclopuicnltook theform
of a shaft which was sunk on the vtin
close lo the hanging wall. This was
carried down until a depth of about 65
feet was reached, when water came in
so rapidly I he work had lo be abandoned and olher means of developing
the property resorted to. This was
done, and as a result a contract was
given to Mi. Lalimer lo drive a 160
foot tunnel to tup the vein. Of Ihis
wnik about 50 feel has been driven,
thereby leaving 110 feet still to lie run,
which when completed, will tap the

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D. A." ie a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches) from this 8,053 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.15 gold per Ion, 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 larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The "G. A. R." has a 80-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, lieayily mineralized wilh an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglance. Theflnest pieeesofwiresil-
verfound oiiBoundaryCreek were taken
from Ihis shaft. Aveiage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 (rat. silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silvei* and one, the
latest -return—$15.05 gold and 100 -1-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot,
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites, This vein has been opened
up by cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein lias been
opened up, being one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs inlo lhe main ledge mi a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feel lias been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40.35 gold,
17J ats. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "8, F." lies lei weed the O. A. R,
and D. A., in the direct Ion of the strike
on the G. A, R, vein. This location has
een made on a vein of pyrrhotite.
The "O. B." hits two distinct veins -
one 25 feet wide whieh, from its strike
and general'character] would seem to
be the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, all bough sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at. present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, JI. E. gaye
$20.00 in gold.
On lhe "ti. II. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron.Jpyriles,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
1(1} ozs., copper 11,110 per eenl., or
$10.44 for all values.
The "Fred D." ivnsJ:loi-aled;'in De
ceinlier, 1885, more as ground for a
luisis for mining operatinns for the
oilier claims than for its present value,
although I here* is liltle doubt that the
large vein im* lhe O. ti. riinsj through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
Ihis claim.
The "J. A. C." lias a large Iron-
capping running Ihruugh it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
lhe ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold,
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but as yel. very liltle development work has been dune on

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
