MONDAY. AUGUST 7,1899.
ON ASSUMING CHARGE.
In last week's Advance Mr. VV. H.
Norris, a pioneer journalist in this pat t
of the Province, addressed a few valedictory sentences to our readers, upon
severing his connection with this
journal. His adieu might.well huve
heen less modest,for amid many difflcul
ties and discouragements he continued
over several years to n ndar the district, useful service both with his pen
and in other effective ways. The
writer in assuming charge may too
well be modest, for he is taking up
work that with fast changing conditions bids fair to be increasingly
arduous and important. So he promises little, albeit bis intentions are lo
try to merit tbe good will and practical
sympathy of residents in the town and
district. He is no stranger here, so
in this respect enjoys an advantage.
His aim wid be to advance the interests
of both town and district by all legitimate means at his disposal. The extent of his success will be in no small
measure affected by the support he
receives, consequently he ventures to
bespeak for himself the kindly assistance und ready aid of all who have at
heart the general welfare of Midway
and the naturally favored district in
which it appeals destined to beeoine an
important commercial and industrial
centre. The indications are that the
early future will see many changes in
tie* direction of active progress, so the
time is opportune for determining to
make "it long pull, a strong pull and a
pull all together," Now there, heave
away.
DAILY MAIL.
For some time past Messrs Snodgrass
and Sons have lieen running stages
djiily between Greenwood and Oamp
McKinney, passing through Midway
en-mute, vet mails aie curried only
I In ee I lines a week each way. Sn long
as no local effort is made to secure
the advantage of a daily instead of a
tlince.a-iveek mail it is not to be exported thai the Post Office Department
uill of its own motion ai range to give
it. If ihis additional mail facility is
wonh having ii is wohlh working for.
Ii only needs residents in all ihe places
along Hie route interested —Greenwood, Anaconda, Boundary Falls,
Midway, Rock Creek and Camp McKinney— I ci combine in an effort lo
secure this added convenience and ii
will lie granted. Who will first move
in lhe unit ter?
The amount of fee chargeable for a
free miner's certlfioate for year ending
May 81st, 1IHX). is at present $1 25. Between 12th and IKI li inst. it will bo 84.
The Jewel Gold Mines, Ltd, has been
registered in Kngland with a capital of
jB90,0i)0in £1 shares. This company
has been formed to acquire from the
Jewel Development Syndicate, Ltd.,
the Jewel, Gold Drop and other claims
in Long Lake cump.
Mr. D. A. Holbrook, who last week
visited Meyers Creek, Oroville and
Loomis, reports improving prospects
in that section. Several of the better
known claims are opening up well and
the indications are that some good
mines will be developed there. Messrs,
Holbrook, Kean&Oo, intend shortly
opening a branch mining and agency
office at Chesaw, Meyers creek,
Mr, \V. 0, Noble, business manager
of the Buckhorn Gold and Copper
Company, Ltd., owning the Buckhorn
and Tin I ic claims in Deadwood camp
has been advised by Mr. Rufus Pope,
M. P., one of the directors, that a 10*
dril1 compressor plant has been purchased for the Buckhorn and that one
half of it will he shipped iu at once.
The Fluokhorn has one of the largest
showings of copper-gold ore in the
district.
Mr H. C. Shaw, of the legal firm of
Hallett & Shaw, left (ireenwood last
Tuesday on a visit to Vancouver.
Whilst at the coast he .vill proceed to
Victoria and there interview the Minis
ter of Mines and the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works relative to
some matters of especial importance to
several mining companies iperating in
the Boundary Creek district and generally to all elaini owners. He will
also urge that the Mining Recorder
resident at Midway be invested with
the powers of a Gold Commissioner, so
as to facilitate the transaction of business with that official and thus remove
the inconvenience and delay now oc-
casioned'by the present Gold Commissioner for the district being non-resident.

being maltreated, bustled off the stage
and left at Ingritn's bridge to either
walk It miles to his destination after,
as he claimed, having paid his fare to

to Rock creek He chose tin latter,
so that he might obtain the assistance
of a well-known Chinese merchant
in seeking redress. The evidence
of several well-known residents of
this district, who were eye witnesses of
the affair, is available should action he
taken in the matter, which the driver.

Mr. R. Hutchins h.-is succeeded Mr.
Henry Johns as mine manager .-it the
Mother Lode mine under the direction
of tbe Superintendent, Mr. F. Keffer.
Mr. Hutchins was one of the shift

two and three years. He came to Mr.

Crown Point (iroup.
The Crown Point, No. 2 and No, 8
mineral claims, comprising the Crown
Point group, are situated about six
miles ahove Rock Creek and back about
a mile from the main Ketlle river,
along side which runs the wagon road
to the West Fork. Messrs, Douglas
.and Atwood, of Midway, who jointly
own a two thirds interest in these promising claims, bave done a lot of prospecting on them, with results that appear to warrant them in regarding tlie
group as an important one in relation
to the development of the surrounding
country. It has already been found
that much arsenical iron and other
concentrating ores occur in the mining
camps on several of the creeks tributary to the Kettle river and at Camp
.McKinney. Now the ore of the Crown
Point group contains lead in proportions favorable to the operations of a
lead smelter, so that with one operating the values contained in the concentrates could be run into thn lead bullion. Granted that the Orown Point
claims open upas they promise to it i.s
unite reasonable to expect that a lead
smelter which it is claimed could be
erected .it a cost very small in comparison wiih tlie expenditure necessary
on such smelters as that at Trail and
that projected for Grand Forks will be
put in and successfully operated at no
great distance from the group.
There is on the Crown Point claim a
shaft I j feet in depth, from the bottom
of which a crosscut towards the hanging wall has passed throng 15 feet of
solid ore and the wall has not yet been
reached, The ore is galena and iron
in a lime gangtie. It contains fiom IB
to 20 per cent of lead and fair values
in gold and silver. On the No. 2 there
are three veins opened by open cuts
and averaging about two feet of ore
fiX'h. They are close to each other
and appear to be making into one big
vein. The ore i.s galena and iron in a
quartz gangue. Assays having given
I up to about 45 per cent, of lead be-
I sides gold and silver values. The No,8
jluis been opened by a shaft, about IS
| feet in depth, and several surface crosscuts. The vein is about three feet six
I inches in width with 18 to 21 inches of
[solid ore of a character similar to that
occurring on the Crown Point, viz,
j galena, iron and lime. It assays up to
29 per cent, lead and also runs fairly
