History Of Tha Boundary
Tho following, taken from
the report of the Geological
8urvey Department, gives some
interesting information regarding the early history of the
Boundary district:
The flrst man in the district
was Charles Deitz, who came
in, in 1857; "Old Jolly Jack"
Thornton was the second man.
Bouudary creek w,a« worked
for placer gold, in 1802, a small
town being located south of the
International boundary line.
1^1884 the first mineral claims
in southom British Columbia
were staked, the Victoria and
Washington, afterwards Old
England, located on itock creek
a few miles above Kettle river.
The same year two of the pioneer prospectors, John Eastand
W. T. Smith came to the Boundary creek district, and in 1885
they located the first claim in
the district, the Kocky Bar, now
the Tunnel on Boundary creek
near the falls. The same year
they also located the Nonsuch in
Smith's camp.
Itv 1886 the Bruce claim on
Ingrim inountain was located by
East.
In 1887 George and David
Leyson and Geo. Y. Bowerman
located the Big Copper, as the
Blue Bird. They went on
through to Trail creek, wliere
they made some locations
around what is now Hossland,
but they allowed their claims to
lapse. The King Solomon wus
located by Lefabre and Lynch,
whjothrow itup. ...In.lii88.it was
acquired by 1). C. Corbin. In
1890-91 there were some locations made by James Atwood
and John Lemon around tho
Buckhorn. On May 23, 1901,
the Mother Lode was staked by
William McCormick and Richard Thompson, and on June 2,
John East located the Sunset
and Wm. Ingram located the
Crown Silver.
The same summer the pioneer
prospectors crossed over to
what is now Phoenix. Matthew
Hotter located the Knob Hill.
Atwood located the Brooklyn
aud Summit camp. Scott McRae, Geo. Taylor, Henry White,
Geo. Rumberger nnd others also made locations, White and
Atwood, in particular, locating
White and Atwood's camps.
The Providence was located in
1891 by Dickman.
In 1882 Howard C. Walters
brought in a 2-stamp mill, which
was set up at Boundary Falls
to treat the quartz of the
Boundary Falls and American
Boy claims. The Providence
shipped about 45 tons of ore,
which is said to have netted
$15,000. The Skylark is said to
have shipped $25,000 or 930,000
worth of ore. Interest in the
low grade ore bodies in the
early days is said to have been
awakened by Scott McRae, who
made a trial shipment for outside capital, and by E. P. Sudam,
who sampled the ores and
brought in outside mining men.
The townsite of Midway, formerly known as Eholts, was acquired by Capt It. C. Adams
and associates of Montreal, in
1893. The site of Greenwood
Was acquired in 1895 by Robert
Wood, who immediately founded the town. Grand Forks was
one of the earliest settlements.
On the advent of tho Columbia
and Western rai Irom! most of
the camps sprang suddenly into
incorporated towns. The chief
towns of the district are Grand
Forks, Eholt, Phoenix, Greenwood, Anaconda and Midway,
with small settlements at Dead-
wood, Boundary Falls and Carson.
The population of the district! will bo fed into  the Hendryx
is supposed to be in the neigh-1 agitator.
borhood of 10,000. The chief
industry on which practically
all the others depend is mining.
The attendant industries and
occupations are fully represented. Lumbering is carried
on to some extent and ranching
is becoming important. It is
found that the lower valleys are
admirably adapted for fruit
growing, and apples, plums and
strawberries of prime quality
are now being cultivated. Tho
mining camps and towns afford
a good market for all such produce.
A Great Saving.
By saving 98 per cent of the
values iu Waterloo ore, running
about $85, the new Hendryx
process of cyaniding has reached the highest achievement of
its brilliant, careor. Tho Waterloo conipany, backed by Dennis
Clark of Spokane aud others, is
now considering the instalation
of the Hendryx plant at its
mine in Camp McKinney, B. C.
The saving in handling the
high grade gold concentrates
would be $13 a ton. The concentrates are now being hauled
to the railway by wagon for 20
miles at a cost of perhaps $5 a
ton, and treatment at tlie Trail
smelter brings the total costs
up to about $11 a ton. The
smelter only pays $11) an ounce
for the gold, instead of $20.07.
In the case of four ounce gold
ore, this means a further reduction by the smelter of $6.50
i>ii tho yjald-* rritilf.initJUltllftKffliftts,
of freight and smelter treatment
$17.50.
The Hendryx process, in connection with the stamp mills at
the Waterloo mine, will prob
ably entail at tho outside a
direct cost of $2.50 a ton for
milling By sin ing 98 per cent
of the gold the indirect loss is
only $1.65 a ton, and the maximum costs for treatment and
losses in milling will amount to
about $4 a ton, as against the
present costs of $17.50 a ton.
The tests by the Hendryx
process were concluded at
Spokane by C. M. Fassott, at
whose ore testing works the
little agitator on the Hendryx
system has been installed. Of
this test'Mr. Fassett say: "The
ore ran 3.99 ounces in gold and
3.4 ounces in silver. We recovered 98 per cent of the gold
nnd practically all of the silver.
In tests on the tailings from the
plates before concentrating,
the Hendryx tailings went only
$1.65 a ton. The tailings, which
are crushed in the stamps to
30 mesh, were recrushed to 80
mesh at a cost perhaps of 50 or
00 cents a ton.
"We also tested the 30 mesh
tailings from the concentrator
without regrinding. The feed
assayed $6.41, and the result
was a saving of 72 per cent of
the gold and practically all the
silver. The tailings from the
Hendryx agitator assayed only
$1.86 a ton.
"Tho solution on the tailings
from tho plates carried about
one pound of cyanide to the
ton. The tailings from the concentrator wore treated with a
half pound of cyanide to the
ton.
"If the Waterloo people accept Dr. Hendryx's recommendations, they will  crush   in  the
"The Waterloo has ordered,
I undorstftnd, five stamps moro,
which will give it ten stamps,
with a capacity of perhaps .'10
tons a day. The Hendryx agitator can handle two charges a
day, and will not need to be of
more than 10 ton capacity.
The agitator and the new ci ashing machinery will not cost
moro than $2500."
The Waterloo company recently ordered a concentrating
table, but has canceled the order
in expectation of putting in a
Hendryx plant. Tlie mine liin<
just sent down a $2000 gold
brick.
An Important Deal.
An important deal has just
been made for a promising mining c^iim in Phoenix camp
which moans the adding of another to the list of active minus
in tbe Boundary, with tho best
of prospects for its future. The
property in question is the Batik
of England, lying in the eastern
part of the camp, only one
claim removed from the Snow-
shoe. Tlie Bank of England
haa been taken on a lease and
bond by W. W. Carter, who h;>-*
been in the Boundary for several years, the amount of money
involved being $20,000. The
vendors are Robert Wood, of
(ireenwood and associates, the
deal having been made by
Gaunce & Wickwire, of Greenwood.
Mr.    Carter already  has  a
8Tnainor08~Of "meinjrt-Trork -mr -
the Bank of England, and finds
tho mining an easy proposition.
It has been unnecessary so far
to use any powder, as the oie
is soft and yields; readily to pi.»k
and shovel. Arrangements aro
being made for a test shipment
to one of the Boundary smelters, from which it is confidently
expected good results will be
obtained. When shipping is begun the force of men at the
property will be increased.
The Bank of England is in good
company; it touches both the
Monarch, owned by the Earl
syndicate, of London, for which
$100,000 was refused some time
ago, aud the Rawhide, for which
the Dominion Copper Co. paid
$40,000 iu cold cash some four
or five years ago. The Bank
of England was located in February 1899, by James Marshall.
After doing one assessment
Marshall sold the claim to Wood
aud his associates. The work
done so far consists of a 25 foot
incline tunnel, but assays have
been most encouraging, $100 in
gold was secured several times,
and it is believed that $20 will
be a conservative average estimate of the run of the oro.

More Improvements at Granby.
Another innovation is about
to take place at the^ Granby
mines near Phoenix, in the
shape of doing away with haulage of mine cars by horse or
mule power. This week the
management of the company
placed an order for two small
steam locomotives, which will
be used for this purpose as soon
as they arrive. The locomotives
will be supplied by the Davenport, la., and delivery on board
ears is promised within ten1
days so that they should be in
operation in the course of a
month.
These locomotives will have
nine-inch cylinder with 14 inch
stroke, and will have a shipping
weight of 20,000 pounds each, or
a service weight of 28,000
pounds. It is expected that
they will haul from five to seven mine cars each, and will he
used in the No. 1 and No. 2 tunnels of the mine, the length to
whicli these tunnels have grown
in late years making it needful
to use some more expeditious
method of haulage, in view of
the increare of shipments now
t-fj,,9.;flf\f\ f.mij pot* .l.*.v, -wlii.-ll IT' IS
expected will take place this
week on Saturday, when all six
furnaces of the company's
Grand Forks smelter • are expected to be in blast.
President Roosevelt's position
regarding tho prosecution of
those implicated in the postal
scandal is well stated in a priv
ate letter he wrote last month
to a New York Congressman,
who appealed to him in behalf
of State Senator Greene of New
York, who has beeu indicted
for his peculiar relations witl
George W. Beavers in securing
contracts for postal supplies.
This private letter has been
made public, not by the Presi
dent, Imt by others, but. it
makes tihnx tho President's attitude toward all who have
been implicated in the postal
scandal, It was one of the
complaints' that Senator Greene
has been indicted by order of
the President. In his letter
the President used plain language as he used in the days
before lie became President.
He says: "The statement alleged to have been made by the
inspectors that I ordered the
indictment of Senator Greene
or any one else is a lio-just as
much a lio as if it had beeu
stated that I ordered that any
one should not bo indicted. My
directions have been explicit,
and aro explicit now. Any one
who is guilty is to bo prosecuted
witli the utmost vigor of the
law, and no one who is not
guilty is to be touched.
"I caro not a rap for the political or social influence of any
human being when the question
is one of his guilt or innocence
in such a matter as the corrup-
t.ou of lhe government service.'"
Again, the President says:
"lf any one is to be alienated
fiom me by tlie fact that I dir-

The Government have recently
tnatlo a gro.pt of £2,000, towards re-
nioilng the famous Cllflord's Tower, which is within the precincts ol
Xorlc Custlo. This Is good nows for
antiquuiians throughout the .country, as undoubtedly thia ancient
stronghold was doomed to extinction in the course ol a, few more
years. It is generally accepted that
the erection of Clifford's Tower wot
■uini or cLirrosii's towki*.
commenced by William the Norman
as a placo of refuge to protect his
barons against any possible rising
on ths part of tho poople, says
Uoyd'e Weakly. The groalest mas-
sacra In England of Jews ever known
took pines .in this "tower of refuge." After Richard I. left for thc
Crusades a conspiracy against the
Jews was formed tr.'York, famlli-.'s
being maltreated und .habitations
plundered. A prorrtinont^Jew, .loccn-
US, his family, nnd about 1,500 others sought refuge in Clifford's Tower, taking with them all the worldly possessions possible. I'or several
days the infuriated populace besieged tho citadel. An offer of a vast
sum of money lo be allowed to escape with their lives was scornfully
rejected. Finding thc position hopeless a rabbi exhorted his compatriots thai it was lawiul 'for for
them to take their own lives rather
than "wait on the cruelty of an
enemy.". Ih ortler to fortify the
courage of his fellows, Jocenus. slew
his wife nnd children, and commenced
execution on the others. The slaughter was appalling. Some of the
party who had not tlio strength ot
mind to commit* self-dostruction
opened, in a too-confiding moment,
the gate of the tower for the admission ot the frenzied citizens, nnd
were at once put to death. This
took place on March 11, 1100. Up
to 1084 Clifford's Tower was a
strongly fortified structure, but during April of thW yoar a fire broke
out and destroyed the interior, leaving the bare outer walls.

Hennlker Heaton, MP., England's
leading postal reformer, recently returned to London from Rome, whither he accompanied his intimate friend
Marconi. In an interview he told of
the latest scientific wonder which he
saw there—lho taking of photographs at a distance of from 20 to
25 miles.
"I visited one of Marconi's radiograph stations, three miles outside of
Home, in tho Campaptna," he said,
"and was shown three perfect photographs of a largo size taken by electricians and scientists from that
station of views in the mountains 25
miles away. How this marvel was
accomplished is their secret. Whethei
It was done by some new way or nn
entirely new discovery. I am unable
to say. The photographs were clear,
bringing out in sharp definition the
outline of houses and thc figures ol
men and women, us though only taken ten or twenty yards ofl. Thoy a|>-

field at will.
"Ono of tho operators told me that
in n short time they hope to be able
to take photographs of objects ond
places two hundred miles distant
and onablo you to seo thc person you
are telegraphing to at that range.
"No one Ib permitted to onter the
radiograph station, and so far the
secret has boen admirably kept."

Iir. Justice Gh'ouard in the preface
t«   fall   "Hupi'leimnt   to Lake   St.
Louie" observes that the new documents from the "correspondence gen-
eralc," in thc national archives   at
Paris which have furnished him with
the material for the new work that
has Just   been published are in the
way of contrast of what he wrote in
Ms   earlier    volume,    "Lake     St.
Louis," but confirm tho impressions
therein conveyed to the public as to
several more or less doubtful points.
Like the learned judge's first work
the   supplement   is' a most \ aluable
Contribution   to Canadian historical
research.   The writer sure of thc intereet in his subject and Inspired by
tho desire to present tho truth   unvarnished makes no attempt whatever ut artistic presentation of embellishment   of   the    documents;     but
leaves them to tell their own story.
The work as  a   whole has distinct
literary  merits  ahd   the translator
from tho French Into English    hus
performed his task in a manner worthy of appreciation.   Tho author has
added   many additions and he tells
that the volume will form thc  lost
touch of a work embodying thc   research of years, pleasant it  is truo
but all the same slow and laborious.
No person, it has been well   said,
has either inherited or acquired    a
better   tight   to   speak of Jacques
(artier County than its former member.
It is   many long years since Mr.
Oirnuard gave his lecture on the la- I
chine massucrc ol 1680 that formed
the starting point of his researches.
It was clearly a labor of lovo, this
studying  of  undent doruments and
archives connottcd with a scone   of
which    his   own   summer   residenco
makes  a   part   to-duy   and   which
■   yields to no spot in North America
in historical Interest! Thc iden grew
upon him lhat v.hilo tho nations  of

i-brstin-f the discovery of America a
resident nf I.achine would be Justified in paying his tribute to the memory of those who founded und fostered  the  early soil laments and especially La Salle,  who was not only
tho   founder   of Lnchine    but     the
pioneer of the States of Ohio, Michigan and Illinois.
"What changes along take St.
Louis" exclaims the author, "since
the early days of the Ooyer cottages,
built about forty years ago, on the
western shores of tho littlo village of
Lachine! The entire distance from
the plare to the northern limit of
St. Anno do llout de l'lsle, some
twenty-two miles, is colored with
beautifully laid out lawns, gardens
and parks, pretty cottages and elegant residences, erected in many instances at a largo expenditure, from
five to ten, fifteen, twenty, thirty
thousand dollars and even moro.
Without spoaklng of the accommodation given hy the C.P.li. and electric railway,   the   O.T.It. has daily
xu iiTCiffprrvo traliii
running to and from St. Anne's at
almost every hour. What on improvement on the 'mixed' and the
'Mocn.-sin' of twenty years ago, always late, so much so that, one exceptional morning, Bob, the popular
conductor of. the 'Moccasin,' on
reaching old Donavcnture Depot on
time was, ceremoniously presented
with a leather modal by the grateful
summer residents. Even if ono haa
to wait for a train, he is comfortably seated in a pretty station, instead
of the miserable opon little shed built
at first by the interested travelers."

THE NORTHWESTERN!
BUSINESS COLLEGE.
809 Second Ave., Spokane, Wish.
The school wliere thorough work is done; where the reason
is always given; where confidence is developed; where BooK'J
keeping is taught exactly as books are being kept in business;
where Shorthand is scientific; where penmanship is at i'51
best; where merit is the standard; where the training in Civil Service, Telegraphy, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them    howto l«
successful.   No argument is so eloquent as   the record d\
things well.done.   No mortgage can corrupt,   no thief «m
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do.   When
you know what a school can do for you by what it has done Sot
others is it better to trust to luck ?   Is it wiser to guess ?
