FROM BOUNDARY MINES.
New Machinery at the No. 7 -Republic's Qood Showing
I'he new machinery lately installed
fin the No. 7 mine in Central camp is
nnw running smoothly, steam having
been got up for the  first  time ahout,
ten days ago.   The No. 7 is the only
•mine being worked in  that camp at
the present, time.   It is owued hy the
No. 7 Mining Company, of New York,
the principal shareholders heing also
leading members of the British Columbia Copper Company, which has done
such extensive and successful work in
developing the Mother Lode mine 111
Deadwood camp.   The No. 7 was acquired under bond hy Col, John  Weir
fnr himself and New Y01 k  associates
about the same time as they secured
the  Molher Lode aud  it   was   flrst
worked, concurrently with the latter,
in 1906-7.   A shaft was sunk  130 feet,
and bet ween 100 and 600 feet of cross-
cutting and drifting was done at that
depth, this wnrk resulted in its being
conclusively shown that the lead gave
excellent promise of proving permanent.   The nre is quartz, mineralized
with   galena   and   carrying   values
chiefly in  gold  and  silver.    Surface
croppings indicated that the lead was
continuous fnr about 700 feet in the
northern part of the claim, hut higher
up the hill, to Ihe south of the shaft,
an old ravine, filled with wash, cut it
off.   A |*nw|iei t shaft sunk still farther
south picked up the lead again.   Afler
the year 1807 very little work was done
on the claim, only sufficient lo  fulfill
the requirements of the law hi this
connection, until a crown -mint was
•obtained, and since then no work was
done underground   until   this  year.
When the No. 7 Company was organized, a year or more ago, mine buildings were erected,  mine  timbers and
cord wood were cut and other preparations were made for further opening
up the mine, hut this intenlion was
abandoned for a time, and attention
was concentrated on the Molher Lode.
Now, however, conditions being mure
favorable, the No. 7 is to be developed.
A carload of ore from the Republic
group, near Boundary Fulls, has been
sent tu the Qieenwood smelter, this
lieing the Aral shipment made from
those claims.   The group includes the
Republic, Last Chance, Non Sueh and
Hidden Tieasure claims, all adjoining,
and situate about a mile northwest nf

An  Ollswii correspondent  of the

Mr. Dan Mann, the railway contractor,
which he vouches for as correct.   It
wns when Mr. Mann was in China two
years ago looking after a big railway
concession.   One evening at Ihe club
in Tten-Tsinan altercation broke out
lietween a Russian and a French of
fleer,   Mr. Mann, who was present,
was appealed to as umpire, and gave
his decision in favor of the Frenchman.
This so incensed lbe Russian tbat next
morning he sent a second to Mr, Mann
demanding satisfaction.   Only for  a
moment was the sturdy Canadian railroader surprised, and then recollecting
thai according to the code governing
duelling the choice nf weapons lay wil h
him, he piomptly accepted the chnl

of Canada, the axe, with wbich  Ihe
duel should he fought.    The Rossini'
was simply   flabbergasted.'    He had
n'ver heard ofa duel fought with axes,
and the prospect wae not an inviting
one.   He sent his second to Mr. Mann
again  with  an apology,   expressing
regret for his ebullition of bad temper
and the fight  was called  off.   Since

TO   ALL   BOUNDARY   POINTS
Will be Run From Here-Can Reach
All Camps With an Easy tirade.
Midway i- acknnwledg il lu hu the
most important poim on the proposed
line of ilie V. V. k E. It is lhe point
from which all the spins to points in
the Boundary country "ill Iw run.
The following laken frnui thr Phoenix
l-'iuneT mil's In show Hint Phoenix is
likely to he connected wiih Midway
liy 11 spur fiom here :
For several weeks prist parlies of
railway surveyors have, heen running
lint's in different direction" from Midway west and from Grand Korks east
ami west. These surveyors were some
of I hem in the employ of the V. V. &
K. railway, and some of ihem in the
employ of Ihe Great Northern nr Jim
mil. In fact, il is doul tfnl whether
sonic of the engineers know just who
they are employed hy; so closely are
ihe Interests of ihe V. V.&E., Jim
Hill mid Mann, Mackenzie & Co. ulliui.
This week, however, the engineers
for the Hrst time weie doing husiness
in Phoenix, running preliminary Hues,
ell. Lale last week a party of sixteen
surveyors, under Engineer Bell, pitch*
ed camp at the Last Chance mine,
midway hetween Phoenix and Green
wood, the avowed object heing tn get
a grade from this place lo acoiiueciion
witli the V. V. k E. soiveynt Midway,
li is understood Unit ihis survey will
not touch ihe city of Greenwood,
Miinday of ihis week the engineers
were in Phoenix, working down lhe
hill. They started at, 11 pott on the
Idaho ground, mid worked down lhe
valley on the Unl'th side.
Ii of com se goes without saying thai
lhe gieal.est o'ject of the railways
coming Into the Boundary is to reach
thu producing mines, and thegieatest
of ihes" are locaied righl in the lion
of Phoenix. Then-fur•', it n ><* seems
to he a Certainty, ihat we shall have
another railway lice in the near fu-
Cure, and possibly two.
The following despatch -cnl cut from
Greenwood a few days ago says:
(ireat Nort hei 11 surveyors reached
Greenwood ihis morning and are
camped at the Els. horn hrewery, lit
the northern cud of town. While
r ports have been sent nut that Ihe
line, tapping the Boundary camps will
start from Cursnn, following Knurl h
of July creek to Phoenix and ihence
nloifg til" divide Ui Summil camp, it is
now evident lhat the engineers Hnd
that all the camps can he reached with
less mileage from Midway along the
Boundary creek valley. The length of
the proposed Carson route to Su ninii
camp is atipmxim ttely 25 miles, giving
railway facilities to three camps only.
The route from Midway up th« Boundary valley, through Green wo id lo
Phoenix, would he 21 miles, lapping,
with shin spits. Smith's, Do id wood,
Copper, Providence, L nig Lake Kim*
heriey, Summit, Phoenix and Skylark
camps, The grade for hoih routes is
practically the same, viz, lliree per
cent.
From the above it will he seen that
Greenwood expects ihe spur from here
to Phoeix In touch there tail that is
noi the Intention of the V. V. k E. As
said hefore it intends to run a spur
from here to Phoenix, hut ihis line
will not 1 ouch Gieenwood as it would
he impossible In do sn and obtain Hie
required grade. Greenwood is likely
(n have a spur from Midway, hut it
will lie separate from lhe one connecting Phoenix wiih this place.

SHERIDAN GROUP BONDED.
James Cronan Takes a Bond nn a Toroda Property-Ore Can Easily

James Cronan, a mine manager of
large experience and excellent judgment, has bund, d the I'liil Sheridan
group, in Sheridan camp, about AA
miles from Midway.
The Phil Sheridan group is owned
hy Peier McConnick and Thomas
Phinney. It is situate ahout three-
fourths of a mile norlhwestof the Zulu
M.i out of which a considerable quantity of very rich ore has been taken
and 'hipped lo Midway. His a comparatively new properly, hut il is one
of the most promising prospecls that
has been found in that camp, A shaft
was sunk fnr 11 deplh of i^ghl feel and
ahoul two a half tons of ore were I alien
out, which, it is claimed, will average
$100 per. ton. There aie Iwo feet of
this ore on the footwall, ami three feet
moie of highly mineralized vein mailer.
The ore is 11 sulphide, currying silver,
gold and cupper. The shaft will he
sunk to 11 tlepih of 100 feet, with drifts
for a sufficient dislance to determine
the character of the ledge. A tunnel
may be driven laler to cut three parallel veins al, a depth of ahoul iJXI feet.
The lower vein can les an average of
$18 per ton in silver and gold. The
middle vein carries the high values,
w.iile ihe upper vein has nnt been
opened nnd its value is unknown.
The properly is not more than Ihree
tourlhs of a mile from an excellent
wagon road leading down Toroda
creek, which affords an opportunity
for the ore to be shipped to Grand
Kinks or Midway. Work wil he pro

efforts io encourage Aineriirii emigration in her vast agricultural lerrilorv
in the Northwest, and is meeting with
consideralile success. List year 12,0(10
Americans crossed the border to settle
in Canada and this year the Oanadiau
government expects the number will
Ihi increased to 20,(0). Canada is
strengl bening herself at the expense of
the United Slates, while our govern

on tropical Asiatic islands that, are
totally unfitted for settlement by white

bave existed in the minds of Ihe people
that those who were sent to look afler
the interests of the oountry were liable
to overlook opportunities to place an
honest dollar in their pockets. But
something more was accomplished
dining lire session—oh, yes, something
more. For instance, the country has
been introduced tn a brand new railwav policy. This policy is unique. It
is, as was the session, "a dandy." It
may be termed a "Sweet Bye and Bye"
policy. It promises a great deal and
accomplishes nothing. The people are
given a policy when they want a railway—thai, in shorl, seems to he about
the size nf the government's achievement. But. something mure was ao*
complished during thc session. Tbis
was the nuptials of Martin and Dttns-
inuir. They were married during the
sesdnn. Didn't ynu bear ahoul it 'f
Ob, yes. I bey were, and it was a grand
affair. All, or nearly all, of the members of the Opposition assisted at the
ceremonies, Mclnnes was best man
and oilier assistants were Brown,
Houston and Green, Tire presents
were "numerous and costly." The C.
P. It. contributed handsomely, so it is
mid.
It was a groat session,
outfit, comprising parties of United
Slaies and Canadian engineers, the
latter under the direction of Mr, J. J,
McArthur, will operate from the const
east. The task undertaken by the
International Commission, that of relocating the line lietween the two
coiiniries, is one uf very considerable
magnitude, and will probably require
several years for its consummation.
The twn sets of parlies will act 111
conjunction with each other. At Mid
way Mr. O'liara will confre with the
chief of the United States party and
arrive at an allotment of thc work;
lhe principle being lo have the respective engineers check each other's work
anil take sections of the country In
rotation. The detail to Iw followed
will he lhat of taking a system of
tritingnlafinns on this side of the line
by the Canadian party and on the
nther side hy Ihe United Stales party,
together with photographic surveys,
the latter being a rapid means of covering the ground with absolute accuracy
and without the ordinary course of
surveying work.
It is tint generally understood that
the work carried on hy the survey
parties of the respective countries i.s
wholly of a preliminary nature. The
engineers are on the ground for the
purpose of determining the exact, location of the geopraphical line and reporting the information thus obtained
to lbe International Commission which
will then confer and determine whete
the line will be placed. When this
decision is arrived tit the line will be
marked by a series of stone mounds
distant ft nm each other about n mile,
A stralghl line will be run connecting
these mounds and the line will be
marked by a broad blaze ten or twelve
feet in width so that no future doubt
can arise as to tbe status of land within
the area close to ihe boundary,

Prospecting in B. C.
Now thai, the camping out season
has begun, if tuny not be amiss to give
a few notes on prospecting. There Is
no life more healthful and more de
lightful. It. is somewhat suipriaitiK
that a larger proportion of young
Englishmen who have a little money
do not spend n summer in Briiish Colunihia, amusing themselves in this
way, in which, if they lay Iheir plans
tight, they are almost certain to add
prolit lo pleasure. No very considerable sum is needed, as JBI05 worth of
work on a claim would hold it for all
lime, untl with ibe addition of a s	
to cover.advertising, surveys and recording, usually aliout £25 will obluin
a Grown grant, those whn gn prospecting should be able lo lay their hands
on this sum. It must, however, limited that this expenditure is not, required all at once, but, can be spread
over live years. Tbe most important
point is to get a good guide. There
are, of course, numerous prospectors
to he found who will lead a party into
lire woods and give them a chance to
stumble nu a discovery hy accident,
hut it pays to lake someone who has
a thorough knowledge nf rock and
tan make some rough tests. So little
capital has been invested In t he country
n few miles back from tlie railroad
that it is absurd to go out without a
clear idea of aiming at a definite poinl,
foe Ihe men wbo have been in the
country studying its mineral possi-
hilii ies for the last few years know of
outcrops in every direction which
promise well, but which they do mil
stake because they have not the means
to work them,
The whole of the dry belt, or inter
ior plateau of British Oolumhla, can he
traversed with horses. Hurse trails
also run tlirouujh a large part of the
more thickly wooded and precipitous
regions lo the east and wesl, so that,
lire camping outlii and food can be
carried on horseback, at the average
rate of ahoul 150 pounds tn the horse.
A horse will carry more, hut the lighter the load the less the risk of a sine
back. The prospectors can nlso ride
but very often, as it is advisable lo
give a more thorough examination to
ihe ground than can lie given from llu
bin k of a horse, some of tbem walk,
and Ibis has the advantage of requiring less horses, which means le*
trouble. When on the trail a ptnly
can average 15 miles a day easily with
pack horses. During the summer
i here is good trout fishing all through
the mountains, and in the autumn
deer and bear afford good sport for all
who care for such things.—B. C. He

A DIS1INdUISHED CANADIAN
How Edward Holland Won the Victoria Cross.
Edward    Holland,    who   has   heen
awarded Ihe V. (J. for a gallant, feat nf
arms performed when he was Sergeant
in the machine gun section of the Canadian Mounted  Hides, is a son of Mr,
Andrew Holland, Maria street, Ottawa, and is 22 years of age. He received
his military training as a trooper in
Ihe Princess Louise Dragoon Guards,
and enlisted in the Canadian Mounted
Rifles for South Africa, afterwards heing attached to Howard's guns.   He
received   a   Lieutenancy   in  his old
corps, the P. L. D. G., on his return
from South Africa,   He is an athlete
well known throughout Canada.   He
is a member of lhe 0. A, A. (',, and a
proficient amateur boxer, as well as a
crack shot and a good rider.   Holland
is a mudest, unassuming young man.
He came through lhe war without a
scratch.
The deed for which he won the most
coveted distinction in the Hritish Empire occurred during Ihe operations in
the eastern  Transvaal.   The detachment to which ihe Canadian Dragoons
and artillery were attached was going
from Belfast lo Lilliefnnteiu, acting as
a rear guard to the column,  The main
column passed through the pass, which
was aliout a mile wide,  lietween the
hills near Lillieliinlein, without heing
molested except for an occasional snipe
shot at the II.ink  patrol.   When the
re.tr guard, composed of thirty Canadian Dragoons, under Capt, Cookhurn
(also awarded the V. C), the left, section if D Ila11cry under Lieut. Morrison
(mentioned in despatches), anuinher of
Ihe Shropshire  Light  Infantry and
Sergeant Holland, wiih thu Colt gun,
were retiring, Ihey were attacked hy a
much larger force of Boers.   The handful of Canadians put up a good fight in
the wide pass.
The Dragoons swung to right and
left at Ool, LfHsiird'g command,  extended,  galloped   hack   and met the
Boer attack.   The Boers thought they
had an easy thing, and came uut iu
the open.   Lieut, Morrison swung his
guns into action and gave ihe Boers a
few sheik   But  this, although  well
done, had nut lhe desired effect.   The
Boers   came on :  one of ihe limes
they  risked  a little.   Holland, with
"flat"   Howard,   was out with  the
screen of dragoons,  and   when  tile
Bierscume out in the open they poured lead into I hem.   'i'he Boers were
loo numerous, however, and loo close,
Besides this, they were coining around ;
the flanks of thu litlle detachment and'
it looked like a round-up    The order
to retire came, uml the British drew
back a litlle, only to turn and face the
enemy again. It was on one of these
1 occasions, when Holland had planted
his gun to give hat tie, that it hecame
apparent to all that in order lo save
their guns they would have to make a
tun for it. Lieut. Morrison's men were
helping the horses to pull the gum, I
while Holland with bis Colt was hanging on to the last, to give Ihe heavy
gnus every chance to- get out of the
way.
Ou came the Boers, and rat, tat, tat,
tut, went Holland's gun, until they
were within a few yards.   It became
apparent to him that he would have to
get nut.   One uf his gun horses had
been shut down, and the other could
not draw the gun alone.   He sized up
the situation, seized lhe gun from the
carriage, and, although it was almost
red hot from the heavy firing, jumped
on the remaining horse and retiied At
tbe gallop.   His hands and arms weie
burned, hut he had saved the gun and
bud been the meant of assisting Lieu'.
Morrison with the heuvier guns to get
out of Ihe way.   Meanwhile the Boers
reached tbe Colt gun  carriage,   For
the moment Ihey thought they had
made a capture, and ti ied to turn it on
the retiring Canadians, hut weie much
chagrined wh-n they found that Ihe
"fiery devil," aa ihey called it, hnd
been cm tied off.   In disgust they burned   the   carriage.    Holland,   in the
meantime, had galloped well back wiih
his gun.   On his way he met the Gen*
eral,  Smith • Dorrien.    The General
looked at the young Canadian, and
asked him what he was hugging uudei
bis arm.
Holland replied, "My gun, sir."
"Good," replied the cool General, as
he scanned the ground where Holland
had come from.
