A Serious Gun Accident.
Whal mny yet prove a fatal gun accident happened on Thursday lust.at Ingrains ranch ueurM id'vny, when a young
man usually a resident of this place,
by I he name of .Inines McClung, maybe
suid to have lieen literally shotallover,
as a resull, of the negligent handling of
aiifle. It would seem that McClung
noticing a deer near the Kettle river,
which runs by Ingrains ranch, proceeded across the fields I n get a shot at
it. Coming to u fence he put the rifle
down, then gelling over the fence took
lie gnu by the imiBssle and commenced
drawing it through the fence towtud
liltu. Hardly hud the operation commenced before lhe gun went off, in-
Hii-ting such wounds as are horrible to
relate. It is stated Hint-the gun was
held by tiie right hund and ns the hand
wus partly over the. muzzle the thumb
down to ils base was blown to pieces.
The ball ihen shuck Ihe abdomen near
the navel and passed around and out
nl the side Inflicting n severe flesh
wound, after which il struck the left
hand, passed lhrough it, and then entered the I'oreiiint, Ihroiitrh which it-
ploughed its way up intu lhe shoulder,
where near the shoulder joint it lodged,
lifter shattering lhe bones in its course.
Fori iniill ely for lhe injured man, a
dwelling houso und help wus near nt
| liniiii. nnd every assistance.waB tendered Unit unskilled hands could suggest
until llie arrival of Dr, Jukes, froui
Greenwood, who appeared on the scene
lu nn incrcditlile short space of lime
considering the distance to lie traveled
lu Greenwood und hack was tiliout 30
uiiles. The doctor having arrived the
several wounds were attended to, nnd
uu elfuil niinle to dislodge the hullet,
but. I his proved futile, so it wus t bought
iidiisiilile to remove the patient to the
Greenwood hospital, which was done
ou Friiluy morning, nl which instil u-
lion In.   now lies  in a  ciilicnl   coll-
points on Boundary Creek.
Mr. M. Gire, manager of the St. Maurice Mining Cunip.ny, u French syndicate operating in Central camp, was
in town the past week, and whilst
here intimated that in a few dnys he
would leave for Paris, on business in
connection with the company. Upon
his return he expects to prosecute mining operations ou a very large scale.
Mr. Bennett formally in the employ
of the Boundary Mines Company here,
und more recently engaged at theLe
Roi mine at Rossland, paid Boundary
creek a visit the past week having
come over from the former camp by
way of the Dewdney trail. Mr, Bennett had quite a thrilling experience
with a rattle snuke on the way over,
attenlion nursing und medical skill
can suggest.
—[As we go lo press we learn that
Ihe discharge of lhe rifle was purely
accidental, nnd not. the result of negligence ns we were given to understand.
Il would seem that as Mr. McClung
wus getting over lhe fence mentioned,
ii. Iiroke down, nnd precipitated him to
the ground, when lhe rifle which was
under him went off.   Ed.]

This $20,000,000 is about Iho official
estimate of the enst nt ihe world's fair,
and is greatly in excess of the Paris
exposition of 1889, which cost. $8,600,000,
or that of 1878 which cost $8,300,000.
The cost of the two places on the

It is not expected thai lliere will be

On the "D, A." iu a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,653 lbs. of ore
wns shipped to the smelter, Riving
$103,16 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lend. A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein from which ore is
heing liikcn. On the snuie 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, heayily mineralized with nn intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silvei-glnncc. Thefinest piccesof wiresil-
verfoinidonBoiindaryOrcek were taken
from this shaft. Average assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 ozs.. silver; also $8.00
gold nnd 150 uzs. silver ntnl one, lhe
latest "return—$15.05 gold and 11)04-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quarlz vein,*mineralized wilh iron
pyrites. This vein luis lieen opened
up liy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein hns heen
opened up, lieing nne foot wide, carry-
infl considerable copper pyriles, and
runs inlo Ihc main ledge as a spur, on
whicli a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $83 gold
nnd 11*10 ozs. silver, and $40,36 gold,
17-i ozs, silver, 2 per cent, copper,
The "S. F." lies letweed llie G-. A. R.
and D,A,,in the direcl ion of the strike
ou the ti. A. ti. vein. This locution has
lieen made on a vein of pyrrhotite.
The "O. B." has two distinct veins!
one 25 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 at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a'cmuervative sampling hy Mr. 8. 8. Fowler, M. E. gaye
$20.00 in gold.
On Ihe " 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
lOj ozs., copper 11.06 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
The " Fred 11." was located in De
ceinliiT, 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for lhe
other cliiiins than for ils present value,
although Ihere is (littie doubt that, the
lurge vein on the O. ti. runs through
it, There is a small vein of galena ou
ibis claim.
The "Ji A. C." has a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Annrnndn, nt a depth of a few feel.
Tbe ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper nnd $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, hut as yet. very little development work has heen done 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
been named.
BOUNDARY GREEK 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 Kiniherly 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
