Several Very Oood Properties.
A conipnny that has done considerable work on its properties and dcm-
mistral i-i) thai several of them will be
rich producers, is the Vancouver &
Bouudary Creek Developing and Mining Conipany, Limited.
L'nst winter Rohert Wood, president
of the compuny, visited Kngland for
Ihe purpose of ohtaining capital to fur
ther develop the properties, and as his
trip proved successful there will he n
large amount of work done on the
company's mines during the presenl
The following taken from the company's prospectus is a short description
of the -{roups of claims owned hy the
company, and of the work done thereon :
The Penticton group is situate on
Okanogan lake, near the lown of Penticton, British Columbia. The claims,
ten in uuinlier, embrace an urea of
over four bundled acres, and are a-
follows : Tlie Okanagan, the Excelsior,
ihe Klomlyke, the Torpedo, the Bellevue, the Imperial,, Ihe Peuticton, ihe
Cloud Hope, the Lightning fraction
and the Espuroii, The sum of Hfteeu
thousand dollars (ippioxiinntely three
thousand pounds) has been spent in lhe
machinery, development end surveying of this gionp, Tbe 'jliiini upon
which most development has been
done is the Okamigan.
The company ha., built a substantial
whe.rf on this properly, close to Ihe
tunnel developing it, and only on
hall' mile distant from the government
wharf at Penticton, The steamers
operated hy the Canadian Paciflc railway conipany call at this company's
wharf on their way to and from Pen
Iictou to deliver machinery and sup
plies, and to lake shipments of ore.
These steamers I hen run up the lake
forty-five miles lu couuect with their
trains, which run to the head of tin-
lake. The ore from this property can.
therefore, he dumped right fiom the
ore cars as they come out of the mine
into bins on the wharf, from which ii
can he automai it-ally shot into tbe
railway cars. In addition to the wharf
Ihere huve been built boarding houses,
blacksmith shop and engine house containing a thirty live horsepower boiler
operating the hoist, pump, &c.
The main vein is a true fissure vein
of n very clearly defined character, the
hicf values of the ore being in gold
and copper, The principal develop
inent consists of a tunnel on the vein
ninety feet long from which a shaft
has beeu stink, double compartment.

vein al a depth from the surface of
one hundred and fifty to two hundred

towards the east and depth Increases.
As lhe drift approaches iu present

pounds) per ion, A most thorough
test, whs made of the ore from this at
different singes of its development 1
considerable quantities uf It having
been shipped to the Tacoma smelter,
to the Hall Mines smelter, to Ihe Briiish Columbia School of Mines, to Mr.
Pellew- Harvey, the government assay-
ur, whose assay of Yukon and oilier
gold is accepted in the raso of the purchase of gold hy ihe hunks In Vancouver and lo numerous other metallurgist, and lhc consistent, average is, as
hefore stated, twenty dollars (approximately four pounds) per ton, demonstrating llmt. wilh Increased machinery
the claim could lm made to pay a large
prolit yearly. A short time after the
beginning of developments on a large
scale shipment* could be commenced
igulai-ly of one hundred tons per _ay.
Allowing for cost of milling, freight
anil Ireatment, the sum of thirteen
dollais (approximately two pounds
twelve shillings), the profit of seven
dollars (approximately   one   pound
ighi shillings) per ton, or seven hundred dollars (over one hundred and
forty-tour pounds) pet day would he
This, as development increases,
would he very materially Increased.
Ou other claims of tbis group three
are shafts and cross-cuts on the leads
making a very promising showing.
The Klomlyke is an extent ion of the
Okanagan to lhe easterly, and the
Torpedo wraps itself around the westerly end catching about one thousand
feet of the lead in that direction. The
Penticton Is on Penticton creek, on
which the Company has secured a line
water power capable of supplying all
these claims, with ample power for
development, etc. It also has a fine
surface showing of ore of a character
similar to tbe Okanagan, in places ten
feet wide ; this showing would justify
The Company having proved that
they have a mine In this group which
will, with increased development, earn
gond dividends, next turned its attention lo the development of Ihe high
grade properties of Ihe Sally group.
It is situated on the Wesl Pork of the
Kettle River in British Columbia, and
comprises twelve claims, aggregating
in area approximately four hundred
acres. The names of the claims are a*
follows :-The Sally, tbe Rob Roy, the
Sally fraction, the Exc-dsior.lhe. Highland Queen, the Castor fraction, the
Kid fraction, the Pueblo, the Tunnel,
the Alice M. and Hard Times. These
claims are crossed hy several true
fissure veins of high grade ore. Each
vein Is very clearly defined and easily
followed for hundreds of feet. There
has heen spent on their development
nver seven thousand five hundred dollars (about fifteen hundred pounds),
and the improvement in the property
with each font of work done is remarkable, The most important work
has been done on the Sally and Rob
Roy, being slmfis, tunnels and crosscuts, aggregating ahout nine hundred
lineal feet; fiom Ihese two claims the
ledges have been traced across oilurs
of ihe Company's claims for many
hundreds of feet, nnd so soon as devel
opulent tin a large scale is commenced
the other claims will be thoroughly
exploited. The hundreds of assays
taken show Ibe contents of the.*"
ledges to he uniformly high grade, tin
values lieing in gold, silver aud lead.
In order to make certain that Ihese
high values would maintain in a larger
quantity lhan could be tested by assay,
iho company, in the face of serious
freighting difficulties, made a trial
shipment lasl, spring lo the Hall Mines
smelter, at Nelson, British Columbia,
of forty thousand pounds weight, receiving for the same from the smelt et
thirteen hundred mid forty six dollars
and twenty eighl cents(appioximntely
two hundred and seven! y*eighl pounds
twelve shillings, the smelting company
first deducting the very heavy charge
of over fifteen dollars (over Ihree
pounds) per ton for freigh treatment
mil usual smelter deductions, This
would be a very handsome profit were
it not for the heavy expense of raw-
hiding and freighting tbe ore down to
ibe railway, which will be obviated so
'oon ns the company completes a road
tn the claims ; even with all the expenses Ihere was a good profit in lhe
shipment, The company has received
it much lietter olfer with regard to
freight nnd treal ment from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, who
own a smelter at Trail, British Columbia, and on whose inilway the ure
would be shipped from Midway.
Substantial building have been
erected, including ure bins, blacksmith simp, cabins, etc.
Thc group has la-en surveyed by Unheal civil engineer in the country, ('.
_B. Shaw. C. E„ D. L. S„ through
whose care and honesty several large
fractional claims of great Importance
have been discovered and located with
practically no expense to the coinpaiiy.
There Hie two clearly defined veins
traceable right across the Sally claim,
both carrying high grade ore, and it
whs from one of these veins, most conveniently tbuated wilh regard to this
trail, that lhe shipment of twenty tons
mentioned above was made. Tunnel
ling tn the extent of two hundred and
eighty lineal feet has been completed
on this claim. In one shoot the ore
laxly is over thiee feet wide, the Vftlll"
of which would average approximately
ninety dollars (approximately eighteen pounds) per ton in guld, silver and
The main ledge on the Rob Roy
averages about, ten feet in width,
carrying shouts nf high grade ore, aud
It will all ultimately pay to I rent, The
opinion of our engineer, corroborated
by men of large experience iu lhat
class of mining, Is that these shoots of
rich ore will in some places In the vein
combine tngethei Into u hody of remarkable value.
These and olher veins on llm company's claims have been t'lteed by
series of surface crosscuts | in all these
crosscuts the om appears nnd gives
high values in gold, silver and lend.
The mountain being very steep, affords
a itiost favorable opportunity for ton-
nelling nn the vein, lhe cheapest kind
of quart-/, mining, involving as it does
nn hoisiing machinery and no pimp.
Ing i besides this, ore is being taken
out as the tunnel is driven. If ,t main
tunnel were run on a central lend,
When considerable deplh had been
gained, a crosscut would, he made to
intersect the other leads, which are
only a short distance jipiil-l.
Immediately upon the completion of
a short road and a few other Improvements the Sally group can commence
shipments of ore of from ten lo fifteen
tons per day i ihis amount, would stain
lie largely augmented as development
and facilities Increased. Witb the reduced freight and smelter cha-gee,
and greatly reduced cosl of moving
the ore the railway, the nel profit on
ihis ore would he approximately fifty*
Hve dollars (approximately eleven
pounds) per ton, or per day from five
hundreds and tifly dollars (ilppt'oxi*
inately one hundred and ten pound.-)
to eight hundred and twenty-five dollars (approximately one hunched and
sixty-five pounds.) This, as before
stated, would lie largely increased aa
development on the various claims
aud ledges proceeded.
In the same district as the Sally
group, a few miles northerly frnm it
on Beaver Creek, which is a tributary
of the. K-ttle, is Ihe Tripple Lake
group, composed of the Kingston, the
Boston, and the Houston claims, wilh

pounds) has been spent for develop

When More wrote "Utopia" the
world accused him of being mad or
else an irresponsible dreamer. He wus
neither ; lie only lived before his time.
When Bellamy wrote "Looking Backwards" the reading public accepted il
its a new phase of lilerattirH and one
likely to pay its author well.   No one
.dr. unit for a moment that Edward
Bellamy was sincere, yet the author
got no more than forty dollars for his
book, and he died of starvation in u
10x8 garret, in Chicago four years ngo,
ti victim of his sincerity. Six years
ago a book was wrillen called "Merrie
England." In it Ihe author advocated
a Utopian ideal, a world of I lie people
and all people at peace, und a bond of
union in tbe shape of a central conven
Lion to include all nations. He, too,
was called a dreamer, but it seems today us if I lie bygone dreams were to
become actual fact. Utopia, in the
sense of communism, can only grow
froni the inside through a people and u
mil ion. The problem of existence is
then for us, how best lo solve the
drawback of the race and raise it to
the highest practical level. Cummer-
cialism is today the controlling force
in our nations, hul it docs not raise, il
debases. The pursuit of wealth is sordid ; ii. is the outcome of the theory
that the weakest must go I o the wall,

Captain Howu met death in the
Waterloo mine on Friday week.
He wus in charge of the property
as manager, nnd on the afternoon- of
tne day in question started down the
shaft to inspect the workings in company with nn employee ot the corporation. The bucket ill which Ibey were
lowered was equipped with the cross-
head, ordinarily used under such cir-
ciimstances,and it was this contrivance
that caused the trouble. - While the
bucket was lieing lowered, one of lhe
shoes on the cioss head jimmied, and
Ihe apparatus stuck in the shaft,while
the bucket continued to drop at tbe
ordinary rale, Finally one of the
limbers foi tiling the cro*sheud became
detnehc-d nnd fell,-striking. Captain
Howe ou tlie head anil fracturing .his
skull. The blow knocked hiliijout of
the huckel und he fell thirty feet lo
lhe bottom of the shaft, breaking his
right leg in two places and injuring
one of his hands. The engineer in the
head works was unaware of the accident and continued to lower-the
bucket Until it reached the initortii-
oitle man nt the hotioin of the shaft,
causing a severe sc.alp wound over
the forehead. The accident happened
at 3:25 o'clock, Captain Howe's watch
stopping when lie fell from the buckei.
The injured man lived twenty minules
afler receiving the terrible injuries.
The decens-d gentleman wus forty-
five years pfng", and left a wife "who
had only joined him ill Catnp McKin

was drafted to one of the regular-engineering corps nf the United States
army and served for a number of
years with Ihe colors. The most stirring edisnde of his military career was
his experience with General Custer's
command in the Black Hills. It is
stated ibat Captain Howe wits one of
lliree men to escape the Custer massacre by Sitting Bull and his war
party. In any event he cairied a
numher of bullets ill his body and
drew a pension from the United States
government for services rendered.  "
On leaving the army Captain Howe,

The Providence.
Development on lbe Providence
mine is giving very Bailsfactory results, Work was begun on this property lastOclnber by Mr. Fowler when he
leased the properly from Howard ('.
The Providence Wjib loeiiti-d by Will.
Dickinan in 1*1)2. The discovery which
led tothe property being slaked was
simply a boulder of quarts ou whiub it
shaft was sunk mid 11 tons of on-
taken out, when ibe ore ran out in
cement wash, Mr. Hickman then sold
tbe claim to Howard C. Wallers, of
Spokane, who lunl to do with the
American Hoy, He sank 85 feet.and during tbis development shipped Ji5 tons
of ore to the Tacoma smeller mul 11)
tons to Everett, The transportation
of the ore to lhe Tacoma smeller wns
very expensive, as it was Inki-n In 1803
before this district was developid, by
puck train to Urand Praliie and thence
by wagons to Marcus at an-average
cost of $15 per ten, This lot ran 0^ oz.
of gold nnd 200 oz. of silver to lhe ton.
Nothing more was done to Ihe properly until last October, when Mr,
Fowler leased the property froni Walters wiih power lo purchase at a price
ii.lined. The work started last fall,
and which is slill being prosecu'ed,
consisted of an open cut following a
little stringer of ore which was follow-
d Into ihe hill .Vi feet, tbe stringer
widening considerably as drifting was
continued, until HI Inches of good ore
was encountered. Of the 50 feet of
drifting HI feet were in ore. At tlie
end of the drift all upraise of 10 ft-it
was made to the surface. A shaft was
next, sunk front this drift, antl atSO
feet down there is an average of 12
inches of solid ore, composed of zinc,
galena and gray copper, wilb unlive
and ruby silver showing freely and
also carrying gold values.
There are now four men at. work,
and It is the Intention of Mr. Fowler
to continue developing tbe property.
Recently Hi tons of ore were senl to
the Greenwood smelter.

The Lake View has had two thousand dollars (approximately four hundred pounds) spent on its developnienl,
comprising among other things a tunnel ahout o,ne hundred and Hfleen feet
in length ; in this tunnel a shoot of
ore was disclosed which widened lo
four feet. Though it has now pitched
down to a smaller width, Ihe vein has
never heen losl, and it is the opinion
of milling engineers of experience and
judgment that further shoots of ore
will come into lhe vein as the tunnel
progresses. The average value of lhe
ore in the face of the tunnel is thirty*
three dollars (approximately six pounds
twelve shillings) in gold per ton. The
directors consider this group one of
very great promise, and helieve that
after work is fairly under way on the
Sally and Penticton groups, it will he
well t» do some further work on these

fraction claims, having an area of
thirty acres. They tire situate close to
the city of Phoenix, Ilritish Columbia,
and are surrounded by producing
mines ; the Canadian Pacific Kailway
crusses this propeity. Close at hand
are the Knob Hill antl Ironsides, operated by the Granby Mining and Smelting coinpaiiy, who recently erected a
smelter, and have already treated
from these properties over two hundred thousand tons of ore, the chief
values being in copper, Only one
claim distant, nnd due north, is Ihe
well known mine, Ihe Snowshoe. The
veins in this camp are said lo he lhe
largest copper hearing veins in tlte
world, the ore heing in places several
hundred feet in widlh. It is not possible to say how wide the ledge on the
Bank of England is, and as it is an
expensive properly to work the company have only done the development
necessary for assessment. A slut ft
forty feel, deep has been sunk, froni
which picked assays have been obtained as high as twenty dollars (approximately four pounds) per ton, The
directors think these claims should be

claims enhances their value, when the
