Thi' following description of the

lo a number nf nur readers :
Thi-rc has been a gond deal written
about thn Went Foik nf thi; Ketlle
liver mid its tributaries, but as a rule,
nnly nne or two localities have been
desrrilied in such a manner as I i give
people any real idea of the vast pnssl
lilhties nf this Important mineral Miction nl British Columbia,
Leaving Westbridge nt Ihe roiiflu-
ente of ihe West Fork wiih ihe Ketlle
river, and following lhe si renin for six
mill s, we come In Boomerang creek.
This creek marks the southern linini-
d.-irynf the Boomerang mining camp,
a liiiner.il til-anile hell al'Ollt three
miles wide hy nine lung, commencing
alkint two miles east of lbe West Fork
and running iu a westerly direction
for nine miles.

The ore in ihis zone is of very good

gold being common, and some claims
with good sized nre bodies assay better.
Ore that was shipped frnm Ihe "Sally"
last winter is said tn have run over
$100 to ibe Ion, and free gold is often
taken from claims iu Ibis camp.
Five miles above Beaverton is Carmi, tin' cenl re nf mineralization of the

known as lhe Canni zone. It lakes in

The Hrsl discovery here was made
liy James D.ile, a prospectoi in 1800,
and it is now in a fair way to become a
prosperous cninp. The Carmi claim
shipped one thousand tons of ore lo
tin smelter during last winter. It is
of good grade, I believe averaging
forty-live dollars In the ton, and assays of seventy-live to three, hundred
dollars iu gnld have been obtained
from claims iu Ibis cainp.
Continuing up the river we pass
Wilkinson creek. The trail from Bea-
vei-liin to Penticton follows Ihis creek
to its head, nnd then on down Pentic-
ton creek to Penticton, situated on
Okanngnn lake.
Further on is Hall creek, where some
gond claims have been located. Across
lhe river is Ch'na cieek. Nome placer
gnld has been laken from Ihis, but il
appears that in most of the cieeks i
have mentioned the gravel bottoms
are auriferous.
Two miles from Hall creek we I each
the Kast Koik, a considerable stream
len miles in length.
Keeping on up the West Fork we
arrive at the Summit of the divide and
ihe head waters nf the si ream, which
lakes its source in some meadows and
small lakes. The tolal lenglh from
there to iis confluence with the Kettle
river heing about forty-five miles.

Attorney General Douglas has begun
proceedings to dissolve the American
Mining Investment company. It has
been operating in the stock of Washington and Idaho mining concerns.
He charges the conipany with fraud in

Queen Bee Mining cumpauy, and
In brief the charges are : "Gioss

lion to purchase whnt is called a portion uf the townsile of ('in lew, situated

Some interesting figures nn the value
of ores in the Morrison mine nre given
in a report on lhe properly inst completed by Boy H. Clarke.
The tusk of examining Ihe mine was
undertaken a few weeks ago by Mr,
Claikentthe request of the Morrison
officers. His report, which has just
heeu completed, has been printed In iv
neat booklet, and has l»'en distributed
to shareholders in Ihe company.
"Some 5,000 tons of ure which was
token out simply in drifting lies nn
lhe dumps." says Mr. Clarke. "The
greater part uf the ore contains ahout
the right amount of silica, lion and
lime In make it a good self-fluxing
ore, similar to the nthei- ores of the
Boundary country. However, the
large amount of iron pyrites pieseut
may make it necessary tn mast a portion nt Ibe lot In reduce the quantity
of sulphur in it before it is smelted,
"The ore recently shipped from Ihe
Morrison contained about 22 percent,
sulphur. This exceeds the amount for
smelling operations, us required ut
present iti thisiiisitict. Such, If smelted by Itself, is desiilplii,iizeil by being
rousted before it, is Bundled. It may
la* found practicable and profitable for
the company to roust ihe ore in heaps
at the mine. With fuel at hand and
proper methods foi bundling tbe ore,
this can be dune for about.fifty cents
net- ton, A saving in freighl and sniel-
tei charges will thereby be effected.
