POSTOFFICE STORE. MIDWAY.
Although the flrst annual repent
of the Greenwood Bonrd of Trade has
not yet been formally adopted by the
Boiird the portion of it that relates to
tin milling industry in the district has
found ils way into print. The valuable information contained in this purl
of i he report was, at. the request of the
late secretary, Mr. R, B. Gosnell, supplied hy Mr, K. Jacobs, who spent, a
we>'k in visiting the mines and obtaining data so as to ensure accuracy. The
descriptive mutter is, in the main, as
written by Mr. Jacobs, who also compiled all the statistics given helow except those uf eapilal invested, which
are Mr. Gosnell's estimates. The mining portion of the report runs as under:
A MINING HBVIKW.
"In reviewing the prospects and
condition of the mining industry of
the Bonndary Creek district it is necessary to direct attention to several
facts tending to show that a comparison with older and lietter developed
milling districts would not he fair to
the former unless due allowance were
made for the attendant circumstances
unfavorable to it. The lack of railway
transportation facilities has heretofore
involved heavy and almost prohibitory
freight charges ou machinery, plant,
materials and mine stores. Power
plants in use at its mines are comparatively small capacity and development
work has necessarily been slow, the
more so since the data necessary for
the advantageous winking of the
mines can not he so speedily obtained
where big bodies of generally low
griult- ore have to he opened up, Then
whilst the branch railway lines to sev-
ral of the principal mines have lately
been completed, the smeller al Greenwood is still only under construction
and i uit at Grand Forks is just aboui
t.. be blown in. Further, lhe district
has not yeU except in two or three in
stances, h'ld the benelit ot the expenditure of any considerable amount of
ouiside capital. So il lias resulted
ihat, with only a limited amount of
capital available, actual mining opera-
lions have lieen much restricted,
whilst the absence of suitable transpor
talion and smelting facilities has great
ly retarded progress. The prospects
for early improvement are, however,
encouraging, With transportation and
ore reduction needs largely provided
fori several of the mines settling down
upon a producing basis aud 80 enciuir
aging tbe further expenditure of capital for their adequate equipment and
more extensive operation ; the contemplated early resumption of Work on
properties that have been closed down
and the general local experience thai
values improve with deplh,the outlook
is liecoming increasingly satisfactory.
DEADWOOD CAMP.
Within a radius of about eight miles
of Greenwood there aro admen mining
camps, in each of which numerous
mineral claim's have been located. Of
Ihese camps there are five that, as a
result of the comparatively large
amount of development work done iu
them, have come into particular prominence, These are Dead wood. Greenwood (also known as Phoenix), .Sum
mil, Wellington and Central (or
White's) camps. Taking tliein in the
order named, Deadwood claims Hrst
notice. Its principal mines are the
Mother Lode, Sunset, Morrison nml
Buckhorn, all copper-gold properties.
Among numerous other claims are the
All There, Greyhound, Great Hopes,
Marguerite, the I). A. and Gold Bug.
The last named two have narrow veins
of ore rich in gold and silver, The
following is a summary of the chief
development work done in this camp :

There are six sleain power plants iu
Deadwood camp. Tbe Mother Lode
has two HO horse power hollers, one
large and two small hoisting engines, a
su light line air compressor, five machine drills, steam pump, electric light
plant, safety cage and other mine
equipment, Preparation is now being
maile to instill at tbis mine a much
larger plant, including two 100 horse
power hollers, a Corliss air compressor
of 110 to 40 drills capacity, twn iron
safety platform cages and all requisite
accessories. The Sunset plant Includes
two 8(1 horse power boilers, ball' of a
20 drill duplex air compressor, ten machine drills, one large and one small
hoisting engine, safety cage, The
Buckhorn has an SO horsepower boiler,
half ofa ID-drill duplex air compressor,
20 home power hoisiing engine, etc,
The three remaining plants are smaller. The deepest shaft In the camp Is
that on the Mother Lode, deplh 325
feet, The ore bodies appear to be
large. The Mother Lode ore body was
crosscut In lliree places at the LlK! lorn
level, showing about 110 feet of good
ore. Large veins of ore have also been
cut on ihe Morrison and Ihe Sunset.
There are about 120 men employed in
the camp, lo which n branch of I he C,
P. H. ha9 been extended.
As in many of the other camps, the
ore here is principally cbalcopyrite,
carrying uold and silver values, although a few of the well known prop
erties show but. little copper, and consist of nearly all iron pyrites, carrying
good gold values. Some of lhe ore
bodies are of large extent and high
assay value. This will undoubtedly
become one of the great copper gold
camps of British Columbia.
GREENWOOD oil I'HOENIX OAMP,
Greenwood camp has had more development work done on it to date
than any other eamp in lhe dislrict.
Its principal properties are the .Miner-
Graves group, including the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, Victoria and the
Grey Eagle; the. Dominion Copper
Company's group, the most Important
claims of which are the Brooklyn.
Stemwinder, Idaho and Rawhide ;aixl
the Snowshoe, Gold Drop and War
Uagle, each owned by ji separate company. Other promising claims in this
camp are too numerous to detail here,
(ireenwood camp is noted for i's big
deposits, which may, without exaggeration, be described as enormous-of
copper-gold ore. Values do not yet as
a rule run high, the average value, for
instance, of more than a million Ions
of ore blocked out in lhe Knob Ilill
having been placed by the mining superintendent at $8.87 per ton. In nearly
all cases wilh any depth the ore shows
a general sameness of appearance, l.e .
cbalcopyrite with hematite (micaceous
iron), and some iron pyrites mixed
wilh calcite and some quartz in a
greenish, eruptive rock, showing considerable alteration and sometimes
having a schistose structure, In some
cases the ore bodies along their trend
are capped with magnetic iron oxide
through which Is disseminated in varying quantities (though as a rule smaller
percentages! copper pyrites. The oie
bodies appear to occur in contact, with
the lime and diorite that have a general northerly and southerly trend ami
an easterly dip. Snine of the ores ,aie
self lluxing and all are well adapted
for smelting, The number of feet of
developnienl work done on the leading
properties is as follows :

The magnificent Canadian number of
The Ninth west Magazine just from the
press is worthy of all praise. Besides
a large numher of distinctly ahle and
exhaustive contributions by prominent
Canadians who cover a great variety
of subjects, there are scores of line
half-tone illustrations which represent
a liheral outlay of money and which
advertise our resources to the world as
naught else can. We cannot but re
gard this issue of The Northwest Magazine as one of the most valuable ever
published on behalf of the Canadian
Northwest. Our various interests are
treated practically, our wonderful resources are described fully and accurately, and our home life, environments,
and social, religious, educational and
olher advantages are sel forth in clear
terms. Interesting stories und sketch
es, an inliniie variety of miscellaneous
matter, poetry, wit, humor, anecdotes,
etc, help to make this magazine as
popular in ilie home circle as it is in

Each new gold field excitement Hurts

come old. The transportation companies had lo find new fields in which to

it into the sea of humanity, The people bit and each day found steamers of
the various transportation companies
laden with vast cargoes of human
freight hound for the land of disappointment, These transpoi tal ion companies knew that there was comparatively little gold to he found there, hut
In order lo satisfy their greedy lust for
gain they were willing to sacrifice human life, They carried people lothnt,
country and allowed them to suffer
privations for no other reason thnn to
increase their own earnings. They
would, no doubt, take olher less expensive means of extracting money
from the poekntS of the public Were it
not. that, tlie law would not uphold
them. It now transpires*that ihere is
nothing at Cape Nome but, sickness,
and people tliere nre beginning to Mud
that they have been deceived. Those
that return will probably not, be fooled
again, but each year llnds a different
lot of people waiting to hear of some
new gold lind, and all they have to do
Is to run up against the transportation

Skylark and Providence camps are
situate in the immediate vicinity 0
Greenwood, Narrow veins of ore, rich
in gold and silver, are the chief characteristics of those camps. Ore has been
shipped from the Providence, Strath*
more, Last Clianceand Skylark claims,
ihe values returned being generally
comparatively high. Tbe Last Chance
is equipped wiih a steam power plant
THK PIONEER CAMP.
Ill Sniil h's camp quartz ores prevail,
values being in gold and silver. The
Republic group of four claims has hud
most work done on il in this cainp.
Th" Boundary Palls and neighboring
claims occasionally show free gold.
The American Boy, Ruby and Golconda group, ihe last named having arson
ical iron and copper ores, are olher
well-known claims, The ores in this
cum]) occur in veins from one foot to
eight leet wide, giving good values,
and in some cases high silver values.
OOPPER CAMP,
Copper cninp has immense surface
showings of copper ore, hut as yet only
n very limited amount of development
work has been done in this camp, the
principal claims in which are the Big
Copper and King Solomon. There is
small steam powei plant on the latter
claim. The copper deposits here occur
n contact with lime and porphyry and
show large surface outcrops of iron
ixide (red hematite) and quartz.   In
■une coarse native copper, cuprite and
copper glance are distributed through
the capping more or less uniformly.
Some excellent copper values arc obtained in this camp.
LONG LAKE CAMP.
Long Lake camp contains chiefly
gold quartz ores in which telluridee of
gold occur. The Jewel nod Denero
Grande are adjoining claims, operated
by the same company, which hus done
the most development work in this
camp. Tlm Jewel shaft is down 850
feet. This mine is equipped with twe
boilers, together 75 horse power, a
four-drill, straight line air compressor,
three machine drills, steam hoist,
pumps, etc. A stamp mill and a cyan
iding plant will probably be installed
during the coming year. Thedevelop
ment work done in Long Lake camp
includes the following:

OTHER CAMPS.
Seven miles up Boundary Creek hy
wngon rond is Kimberly camp. A
large number of claims have been located, but as yel development has gone
on in only a small way, no large com
panics having taken hold of it. The
ore here is heavy sulphides (copper and
iron), and some pyrrliotile.
In West Copper camp, nine miles
northwest of Greenwood, a number nf
claims have been located. The ores
are arsenical pyrites in ft silicious
gangue, giving gold assays up to $88
per ton.
Very promising camps are being
opened upon lhe North Pork and on
the main Keltic Itiver. In the vicinity
of Beaverton on the West Pork are
some exceptionally Hue showings and
development work is being carried on
actively. At Canyon creek, on the
main Ketlle, there are extensive deposits of inispickle. The whole of the
country referred to is still in its infancy from a mining point of view, hut is
attracting a great deal of deserved at*
lention and numerous miners and
prospectors are going in. Approximate
