From  this   advertisement  we  learn  that   two  members of the  Company's advisory board for Canada are  the Hon. Chas. F. Pooley, Q.C., (President of the Fxecutive  Council   of   British   Columbia),   and .the  Hon.   David  W.  Higgins, (Speaker of, the Legislative Assembly of British  Columbia); further, in the  prospectus,  special attention is  drawn to the fact that " the Company is fortunate in having  amongst the Advisory Board for  Canada members  of  the  Provincial G-overnment, and for its solicitor in Victoria the  Hon.   D.   M.   Fberts,   Q.C.,   the Attorney-General  for  the  Province."    We certainly congratulate the Company  upon  securing the services of these gentlemen and no doubt their  names and official standing will help to sell the -Company's  stock.    Why   anyone   should  object  to  Cabinet Ministers  making " capital " but of their official   titles   is,   of  course,  unaccountable, but nevertheless there are unreasoning and  unreasonable people who sug-gest that it is not g*ood form.  Accidents may happen at any time; what would happen to  the " official titles " or the credit of the Province if, in this  case, something went wrong with the G. F. of B. C. Ltd. ?  .safe    *v��>    4f4  ���SB"       ���*���/.**       -/if  The   necessity,  now  becoming  increasingly urgent, for  the  Dominion Geological Survey Department giving*, more  attention to British Columbia has already been pointed  out  in the  public press, but the  importance  of  the  matter  is  such as to call for direct appeals from those districts which  appear to have a good claim for the active services in  each  of a survey party during* the ensuing- summer and fall. The  publication of letter-press and maps which merely  indicate  in very general terms the approximate area of the respective mineral bearing sections  of the  Province  is  not now  sufficient.    For instance, what detailed information of any  practical value can at present be obtained from  the  official  reports of the Geological Survey  relating*  to  much  of the  country   included within  the  limits of the Kettle   River  Mining* Division ?-.   Hitherto this province has not received  a fair share of attention  as  compared  with  many eastern  sections of the Dominion; consequently to-day  the  official  reports arid the maps of the mining districts   of   British  Columbia are  generally  not  up-to-date  by  reason  of  the  limited amount of work done in the field by the g-overnment  surveyors.    We would respectfully  call  Mr.   Bostock's  attention to this fact.    An effort should be made to secure the  services of a Dominion Geological survey party  this  year ;  their report, which, however, would not be published in full  until nearly twelve months after the completion of the field  work, would, together with   a  report  from  the  Provincial  Mineralogist, be a grand advertisement for the camp.  #  fit*  Butte is without doubt one of the greatest mining districts  of the North West, but Mr. Carlos Warfield, a Montanaian,  and a partner of Mr. August Heinze of smelter fame (judging from remarks he recently made at Toronto to a representative of the Globe), has turned to worship at a greater  shrine. Here are some of his utterances: On being asked  how  Butte  compared  with    Trail,   Mr.   Warfield   replied,  " Well, for answer I may say that we are now spending our  money in Canada; and I may also  say  that  we  have  just  mortgaged our  Montana  property  for $1,000,000  and  are  putting that and  another $500,000  into  British   Columbia  property.    And I can tell you that we are not doing that for  the sake of our health.    If I tell you just what I think about  the resources of British Columbia you would hardly believe  me ; and, mind you, I am not here to sell anything, for. we  have nothing to sell."    But it  was of the  Boundary  Creek  district, west of Rossland, that he spoke most, and  that  of  the most startling nature.    He  made  the  prediction   that  within a comparatively short period this district  will   support several towns larger than any that now exist in British  Columbia. " What will be the nature of the mining there ?"  was asked.    " Copper, gold and  silver,"  Mr.   Warfield replied,    " And I put copper first, for you will find that, unlike  Rossland, gold will be  the  by-product."     He  then  again  went into comparisons  between  Butte  arid  the  Boundary  Creek district.    At Butte, he said, there were now  between  five and six thousand miners working urider  ground.    The  copper ores, which is the staple product, are extremely low-  grade and carry no gold at all.    The average yield per  ton  he,put at from 4 to 8 per cent copper and from 6 to 8 ounces  of silver.    This, he said, might appear to be very low,  but  still the mines were paying dividends by reason of the large  scale of operations.    In the Boundary   Creek  district there  were vast mountains of copper ore where three or four times  the number of miners could be employed than find work at  Butte, and of 47 assays made the lowest was 8 per cent, of  copper, 22 ounces in  silver  and  $6  per  ton  in  gold.    The  average would be very much higher.  " Why," he continued  "the possibilities  of. British   Columbia  are  beyond  one's  imagination.     Just  fancy,   it  was the  mines    that  made  Butte the city that it now is,  and when you  take  into  consideration the magnitude of the mineral deposits in  British  Columbia and then remember that it takes four or five able-  bodied men to extract the value from one   ton  of ore, what  will your mining population   amount  to ?  ���5ft*-  The Government, we note, proposes to dispense with the  services of one of the provincial timber inspectors and appoint another inspector of mines in his stead. This would  be decidedly a better investment, but an inspector of mines  should be appointed for every mining division,���in some  cases two would be preferable. Candidates for this position should be obliged to pass an examiiid.tion, competitive  if possible, testing their knowledge of the kind of work required of them. This plan should be adopted for all  branches of the civil service. The country is developing  too rapidly to admit of incompetents with nothing but the  political pull to recommend them, holding responsible official  positions.  ��Jfe        ��5*J.  ?IP  The annual report (for 1896) of the Minister of Mines has  just been,issued from the press, and is a credit to the Province (which is the highest praise possible), and distinctly  a feather in the cap of the gallant colonel. In comparison  with the general run of blue books, this report is intensely  interesting reading, and contains, moreover, besides the  customary maps, several high-class engravings representing places of interest in the respective provincial mining  districts. Mr. Carlyle's valuable reports are also included  in this edition. The Osoyoos and Kettle River divisions re'  ceive ample justice in the carefully compiled reports thereon from Messrs. Lambly and McMynn ; while Mr. Fowler,  M.F. has a special article on Boundary Creek, the coal deposits at Rock creek and notes on McKinney.  ���7ie  ���%���*  When will Rock Creek be bridged at that point where the  stream crosses the main trunk road ? Fcho answers. This  work, which could be carried out at a trifling expense, is  badly needed, and its necessity has been bx'ought to the attention of the authorities on more than one occasion, hitherto without result���but that goes without saying. In the  spring of the year, at any rate, this unbridged crossing is  very dangerous, men on horseback having repeatedly been  swept down by the swift current of the stream at flood time, THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  MINING NOTES.  Jack Harlan has been obliged to  abandon work for the time being on  'the Marguerite; as the shaft is full of  waiter from the melting snow.  John Christie, of the Nightingale, is  leaving shortly to try his luck prospecting in the hew mining districts up  the coast. He will be grub-staked by  the Hon. T.M. Daly.  Assessment work is being done on  the Iron Pyrites in South Deadwood ;  as the name implies the claim: has a  great showing of iron ore, which moreover carries fair gold values.  " Bill " Lewis has been given the job  of foreman at the Jewel and entered  upon his new duties on Wednesday.  "Bill" has a reputation in the camp  for being an adept with the measuring  tape.  On Monday " Tom " Walsh bonded a  group of five claims, the Montana,  Lucy, Fmerald, Colorado and Virgin-  ius, near the Snowshoe, Greenwood  camp, from T. Hardy and J. Frost.  Ten per cent, of the price on the bond,  which is a comparatively large sum,  was paid down.  A mining expert is being sent out by  an Fnglish syndicate to examine and  report on the Anarchist claini, on Anarchist mountain, owned by Mr. R. G.  Sidley. If a favorable report is submitted the property will be thoroughly  exploited under bond.    ,  Mr. D. A. Holbrook having- acquired  a half-interest in the Bee, adjoining  the Morrison, in Deadwood- camp, is  now having the 100-foot tunnel cleaned  out preparatory to sinking a shaft  from the floor of the tunnel. Some  specimens of nice looking ore. have  been obtained from this claim.  Mr. Milligan received on Tuesday a  cablegram from one of the best known  firms of brokers in the city of Glasgow,  Scotland, authorizing him to buy a  large block of the B. C. M. & M. Co.'s  stock on their behalf. The senior  member of this firm of brokers is vice-  president of the Glasgow Stock Exchange. Mr. Milligan is confident that  this purchase of stock in the local company will be followed by others equally  as large, for the reason that people in  the Old Country are only beginning to  accept the idea seriously that British  Columbia is a mineral country of extraordinary promise.  Travelling Facilities.  The Northern Pacific Railway Co.  has so arranged its time table as to  admit of such close connection being  made at Seattle and Spokane that the  time heretofore occupied in travelling  between Boundary Creek and the  Coast will be considerably shortened.  Passengers may now take steamer at  Victoria at 8 o'clock in the morning ;  reach Seattle in time to catch the N.P,  train leaving that city the same day ;,  arrive at Spokane at 6:50 a.m, next  morning ; take the S.F. & N- train for  Marcus or Bossburg, 40 minutes later,  and, after stopping over a night at an  hotel, be in Greenwood before noon of  the following day. This means that  Greenwood is now within about fifty  hours travel of Victoria and probably  a little less of Vancouver.

Sale of Two Claims in Deadwood   Camp to
an English Capitalist.
A cash sale running into five figures
has been made of the Hidden Treasure
and   Gold   Bug   claims   through    the
agency of Messrs. Barrett & Hodgson,.
of Greenwood, the purchaser being Mr.
A.   Drucker,   M.P.,   of  London,   England.    The claims lie in   a  direct  line
between the Mother  Lode  and  MorriT
son, and were located in June, 1895, by
T. Walsh.    One   assessment  only   has
been done oh each of the properties, but
the ledg-e,  trending  north   and  south,
distinctly traceable  from  the  Mother,
Lode thrpugh both the Hidden Treasure
and Gold Bug, has  by  open   cuts  and
prospect   holes  been  shown   to  be  at
least  thirty   feet  wide. , The  mineral
found on   the  surface   is   chiefly   iron
which  obviously  constitutes  the  capping-, for at a little ..depth   some  very
fine quartz with copper pyrites was uncovered and assayed   from  $12 to $20. .
Mr. Drucker hopes  to  leave  England
shortly for Boundary Creek, but directly , the  weather  permits  development
work on a large scale will be prosecuted on both properties.    Mr. Drucker is
very wealthy, and has,moreover, great
faith in the future of British Columbia
and   especially   of   Boundary    Creek.
Since his visit to this district last  fall
he has   done   much   to   attract public
attention in Fngland to   the  potential
mineral   resources  of  this    Province.
The sale of the  Hidden  Treasure  and
Gold Bug may  be perhaps regarded as
an indication that English   capitalists
are beginning to recognize in Boundary
a promising field  for  investment, and
we, therefore, very  heartily   congratulate Mr. Drucker as the pioneer of  the
This sale is the second deal of importance made through the agency of
Messrs. Barrett & Hodgson, who were
instrumental in carrying out the deal
bonding- from the owners the Jewel and
Denero. Grande, in Long Lake camp,
to the Prospecting Syndicate of British
Price of B. C. M. & M. Stock to be Raised.
The Boundary Creek M. & M. Co.
have acquired two more properties on
the south slope of the hill above Greenwood. These properties, the F.C.B.
adjoining the D.A. on the west, and
the Prospective to the south of the
Great Hopes, were formerly owned and
partially developed by Mr. F. C. Brown,
and are undoubtedly promising prospects, especially the F. C. B. The
Company how own twelve claims in
the group, all having more or less good
surface showings, while the D.A. has
already, judging from recent development work, indication of becoming a
valuable mine. In consequence of the
decidedly improved conditions, the
price of the stock-—now selling at 10c.
—will probably be raised within the
next thirty days.
A distance of 20 feet has'been reached in the new crosscut tunnel on the
Combination, Providence camp, and
lately some good sulphide ore was encountered-. Mr. C. F. Bartholomew,
the Company's manager, has been
seriously ill in Spokane but is now recovering, and upon his return to
Boundary the present working force
will be increased, a whim installed and
the development of the claim pushed
rapidly forward.

SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1897.  Action of Committee Endorsed.  The signatures of seventy-five  business men and other residents of Greenwood and Anaconda  are  appended  to  the   following*  memorandum:   "At  a  meeting* held in Greenwood  on  March  1st a committee was  appointed  to  represent the citizens  of  the  Boundary  Creek district in regard to the shooting  of Mr. Hood  by  Chief  Constable  Mc-  Mynn.    This committee now  consists  of G. A. Rendell,   Gerald T.   Hodgson  and L/eslie Hill.    The committee mem-  oralised    the    Attorney-General,    and  others asking* them to enquire into this  shooting-.    Mr. C. A^ R. L,ambly, S.M.  has held an  enquiry  and  the  fact  is  , established that Mr. Hood was shot  on  the 26th of February by Mr.   McMynn  while waiting- at  the  Record  office  at  Midway.���We   the   undersigned    residents of Boundary   Creek district  are  fully satisfied with the action the committee has taken   and  we request  the  committee to take such further steps as  may be necessary to secure a  full  and  impartial trial."  [While the foregoing report utterly  repudiates any statements that may  have been made that the gentlemen  acting upon this committee were not  representative of the community, we  are given to understand that the majority of those who signed the memorandum feel and have expressed sincere  sympathy for Mr. McMynn in the un-  unenviable position in which he has  placed himself.]  Another Business House for Greenwood,  Mr.   John  Hamill,   the  well   known  dealer in furniture, arrived on Wednesday's stage from Armstrong  and  contemplates at once erecting a large furniture store on Copper street, where he  already owns lots.    Some time ago Mr.  Hamill  sustained  a  heavy  loss  from  fire, his store at Armstrong and a large  proportion of the stock being destroyed.  This has somewhat interfered with his  plans   regarding   building   in   Greenwood, his original  intention   being   to  have a branch establishment here, carrying   on   the   principal, business   at  Armstrong.    He is now  not  quite  decided whether or not to abandon  Armstrong   altogether    and   make  Greenwood  his  headquarters.     Mr.   Hamill  speaks very enthusiastically of the recent discoveries <5f  mineral near  Vernon.    He has travelled extensively, he  says, through the Slocan and Kootenay  but never saw a finer specimen   of ore  than was shown the other; day at  Vernon, taken from a claitfi near the head  of the lake, opposite  Okanagan landing.    By-the-way, Mr. Hamill was   informed by Mr. Tunstall, the mining recorder for the Vernon division,   that a  number of the very   promising  claims  on Okanagan lake have been staked on  the Indian reserve.  And Still No Hanging Wall Reached.  The Mother Ivode tunnel has now  been driven 240 feet from the lime contact across the ledge, and on Wednesday the Company's manager said that  the hanging wall had not been reached.  Recently, however, the character of  the rock has changed, becoming much  more " quartzy" and carying a far  smaller percentage of copper than  heretofore,   and   it,   therefore    seems  probable that within a few days the  full width of this remarkable deposit  will be determined. At the same time  on several occasions since the tunnel  was started, changes in the appearance and value of the ore have given  rise to the supposition that the hanging wall was not far distant, but instead of the expectation being realised  in every case a fresh streak of rich  sulphides would be penetrated. When .  the width of the ledge has been ascertained, a winze will be sunk from the  Mother Lode tunnel to a depth of 100  feet, thereby proving the vein for 200  feet froni the surface.  The Jewel   Improving.  .After passing through eighty feet  of barren rock and quartz good ore was  struck at a depth of 120 feet in the  shaft of the Jewel this week. In a  few days time when the station is cut  a force of six more miners will be employed at the mine, the Syndicate's  engineer, Mr. Leslie Hill,, intending  to thoroughly prove the property. The  probability of the Jewel becoming as  valuable as anticipated from the rich,'  surface indications is much greater at  present than for some time past.  MINING NOTES.  Messrs.,W. T. Thompson and Douglas have gone on a trip to Granite  Creek.  The first instalment of machinery  for the R-Bell, Snmmit camp, was  taken up to the mine this week.  A crosscut has been run from the  bottom of the No. 7 shaft and a drift  started therefrom down the ledge.  Very fine ore is being taken out.  A party of, prospectors arrived on  Wednesday from Butte, Montana, and  left on Thursday to develop a group of  claims at Rock,creek located last year.  Johnnie Dunn came down from Dead-  wood camp on Thursday and reported  that the hanging wall had been struck  on the Mother L<ode. There is a fine  gs.uge on the wall whi^.h is almost perpendicular.  Messrs. S-iliivan and Waddell, who  have worked during the winter, on the  Colorado, Canyon creek, 22 miles from  Kock creek up Kettle river, came down  this week t*> purchase supplies. They  have succeeded in driving a tunnel 40  feet through solid pyrrhotite ore.  Messrs. McMann and Graaf have let  a contract for a shaft on the St. E}lmo,  Wellington camp. The,St. Elmo has  a good surface showing. Work will  be started at once on the shaft which,  if the prospects are satisfactory, is to  be sunk 50 feet."  Mr. Harry Guess, the B. C. M. & M.  Co.'s assayer, went up to the D.A. on  Wednesday and reports that the pay  streak of clean ore running with the  ledge has widened to ten' inches, and  that another small stringer of high-  grade ore has been struck. The tunnel is in between .50 and 60 feet. The  last assay went $215 in gold and silver.  Notes.  F. Wood sold out this week his soda  water plant and left to. engage in the  hotel business at McKinney.  Another railroad is being built.(?) to  Boundary. It is somewhere about between Conconully and Midway.  Mr. A. Megraw will leave Kingston  for McKinney about the 15th inst., to  take up his permanent residence here.  A shop-front is being placed in Mr.  Worgan's building on Copper street,  and a confectionery started in connection with the bakery. Stationery will  also be sold.  The Grand Forks Miner has come  out in a new form and is now printed  entirely at home. The Miner, in point  of type set, is now the largest paper in  the Kettle River mining division.  fegMB <8*-B*mt����-49*-0*V*&4&>4fr40�� �� <9>�� 4&*&<0*~&4Qb2$  r-r Dealers in  Real Estate  And MINERAL   CLAIMS,  Greenwood, B.C.

Men have,been sent to do assessment  work on the Barney Barnato, Pass  creek.  Mr.   Donald  McLaren  is  to  be  ap-  ....pointed postmaster   at  Carson   in   the  place of Mr. Sprag-g-ett, who is   unable  to attend to the duties.  Capt. R. C. Adams, owning* several  mining* properties in Boundary, Okanag-an and Slocan, has formed a company in L/ondon, England, to take over  and operate the claims. The company  will be known as the Adams Exploration Syndicate.  An assay has just been made in Toronto of a piece of copper ore from the  Big* Copper claim, given to Mr. A.  Megraw by Mr. Austin Hanier in the  summer of 1893. The ore was cuprite,  with some native copper, and went  61.427 per cent, copper.  Good progress is being* made with  the Midway irrigation ditch, now under  construction. The dam is completed  and the excavation work therefrom is  well under way. It is conceded that if  the new dam resists the enormous pressure of water from this year's freshet,  the test will be adequate evidence of  its streng-th.  Mr. Sidney Almcnd has as yet received no official notification of his appointment as mining* recorder at Grand  Forks, notwithstanding- that it was  announced some weeks ag*o that he had  been nominated for the post. The Government could find no man in the district better qualified in any way to  perform the duties of mining- recorder  satisfactorily.  East week's B.C. Gazette contains  notice of incorporation of " The Boundary-Helen Gold Mining- Co.," capital  $300,000 in $1 shares; first trustees���  Hon. T. M. Daly, G. T. Hodgson and  Margaret J. M. Wood ; principal office,  Greenwood. The certificate of registration of the " Great Hopes Mining  Co.," capital $500,000 in $1 shares, with  head office at Spokane, also appears.  The following items appear in the  estimates of expenditure for the next  financial year ending June 30th, 1898,  presented to the Legislature last Friday : A government staff for the Kettle  River division, consisting of a mining  recorder and constable at Midway,  $1,200; a similar official at Gra.nd  Forks, $960; a school-building and furniture at Greenwood, $800, and at  Grand Forks $1,200 ; teacher at Greenwood and Grand Forks $600 each ; recorder's office at Grand Forks, $1,500 ;  lock-up at Greenwood, $800 ; for roads  and bridges in East Yale, an increase  of from $12,000 to $18,000 over last year  (details not specified).  The proprietors of the Cascade City  townsite are bridging Kettle river below the town. By this step the road  between Marcus and Grand Forks will  be materially shortened and the steep  up-grade haul at Edwards' ferry may  be avoided by teamsters. Apropos, it  is relevant to remark that private enterprise has almost entirely opened up  the country in the vicinity of Christina lake with highways, and it is  therefore more sincerely to be hoped  that the Government will assist the  settlers and prospectors in that section  in one particular at least,���by throwing a bridge across Christina creek.  This bridge can be built at the trifling-  cost of about $200.  **!&  ^^^^M^M^M^M^M^^^M^M^M^.  *J9*       <**  W.     U.     ARMSTRONG.

Mr. Le Roi Hodg-es has accepted the  position of book-keeper on the Coldstream ranch at Verndri.  Mr. Randolph Stuart, left England  on the 17th of last montn for1 Midway,  and is expected next week.  "Joe" Franks returned to Greenwood  on Monday after a fortnig-ht's absence  at Camp McKiney, where he reports  the snow to be from five to six feet  deep.  Kd. Meyers is driving on the Penticton stage route for a short time in  place of "Johnnie" Snodgrass who is  enjoying a well-earned holiday and a  touch of la grippe.  An accident is reported to have occurred the other day. which resulted in  the loss of one of the horses on the  Penticton stag-e line, the animal breaking its leg* was shot.  Mr. Guthrie, who came in from the  Slocan about a month ag*o, has lately  been suffering with inflammatory rheumatism,- following* influenza. Under  Dr. Jakes' care the patient is now progressing favorably.  There was an attendance . of , over  fifty persons at the service held in the  school-house by the Rev. T. Paton on ,  Sunday. The singing during* the.evening was very hearty, Mr. G. T. Hodgson accompanying on the auto-harp.  The roads are  generally   in   a  very  wretched   condition,  coming  from   Marcus  oblig*ed to hitch seven  freighter  m   a  One  last week was  teams or fourteen horses to his wagon on the upgrades. The. charg-e for freighting  from Marcus has consequently been  raised.  Mr. G. R. Naden, of the private  banking firm of R. J. Bealey & Co.,  has returned to town after a few days  abvsence. As soon , as the firm's safe  arrives, which should be early next  week, business . will be commenced.  The safe was delivered at Marcus sev-  eral days ago.  livery week sees some new buildings  started in Greenwood and the town is  growing at a rapid rate. This week  the erection of a cabinet-maker's shop  was commenced by Messrs. Keady &  Ratcliffe on Silver street. Both members of this firm are skilled artisans,  and propose getting in machinery for  the manufacture of sashes, dcors and  house fixings.  Mr. Iy. D. Kean, of Spokane, paid  Greenwood a visit last week at the invitation of his old friend Mr. Holbrook,  with whom he spent three days. Mr.  Kean stated'that during a recent visit  to several of the chief eastern cities,  both of Canada arid United States, he  found much interest taken in B. C.  mining matters, and was frequently  assured that many will come in to the  province as soon as weather conditions  are favorable to prospecting* raid mining operations. .  Work will probably be finished at  the sawmill above Anaconda in the  course of a few days, by which time  the logs on hand there will all be cut  into lumber. The Greenwood mill is  now in steady operation, dressing- the  lumber sawn at the upper mill, making  shingles, etc. Later a start will be  made to cut the logs, of which there  are a large number piled in the yard.  Ample preparation is being- made to  meet the brisk demand for dressed  lumber and shingles.  Hand "Upper Cut" wins him Fame.  if .. ^  R-emeniber I  sold at  "Undercuts" are doing the same.

It is understood that the Government  townsite reserves at the mouth of Rock  creek and up the North Fork of Kettle  river will be surveyed and laid off into  lots this summer, arid sold by public  auction. The former site comprises 160  acres east of Rook creek, where that  stream flows into Kettle river, and is  one of the most commanding* locations  for a trading* centre in the -whole Kettle river valley. It is within half-a-  niile of immense deposits of coal, and  but a short distance from James creek  camp, McKinney, and many claims of  known richness to the north and west.  A general merchandise store will be  opened at the future city by a resident  of Greenwood, as soon as freig-ht can  be g*ot in. -At- present a considerable  portion of the site is occupied by a  Chinaman's vegetable garden and has  been for very many years.  ANACONDA COMMERCIAL CLUB.  Mr. Hind acted as secretary at the  meeting of the club on Wednesday, in  Mr. Miller's absence. A leng-thy discussion arose over the question of the  advisability of sending correspondence  to newspapers to advertise Boundary  Greek on the outside. The president  said he understood that when the club  first org-anized thig was one thing decided upon. Several members had undertaken to write letters descriptive of  the country for the press, but he regretted to say that very little in this  direction had been done. Mr. Iyaw remarked that undoubtedly advertising  the resources of this section  by  letter  writing* was'.'both a/cheaparideffective  method, and he would be sorry if the  original idea ;was abandoned. He  moved that the question be laid over  one week, to see what might be done  in the meantime.  Mr. Hardy* the treasurer, presented  his report, showing* a balance on hand  of $27, at the same tinie asking- to be  allowed to resign his duties on the  g-rbiirids of his probable absence for  some time at Christina lake. A vote  of thanks was tendered to Mr. Hardy  for his services, his resignation being-  accepted with regret. Mr. Hind was  appointed to act as treasurer for the  remainder of the year.  Mr. Hind,: on behalf Of the townsite  company, stated that the approaches  to the bridge crossing Boundary creek  were to be completed at once, and that  directly it was possible a force of men  would be employed to build a road  from Anaconda towards Copper camp.  The Fairview and Okanagan Mines.  0  Mr. Wm. Nelson returned last  Wednesday from a visit to Fairview and to  Golden   and   Ivoomiston,   Wash.      He  found the Fairview camp very., active,  much  prospecting  and   mining  work  being*  in  progress,   whilst  the  recent  starting of a local sawmill has, by providing   lumber,    facilitated    building-  operations.       The   Smug-g-ler  mine   is  looking well, the rock now being mined  showing gold freely.    It is intended to  erect a stamp mill during*  the   coming-  summer   to   treat   the   ore  from  this  mine.   At the Tinhorn, one of the Dier  & Davidson  properties,   a  number  of  men   are   employed    developing    the  claim and others are  building*  a  road  up to the workings.    The  Joe  Dandy,  which is being* worked by   a   company  with which Lord Sudely  is  connected,  is reported^ to  have  struck  the  ledg*e  and is  meeting*  with  encouraging* re-  - suits.-     Several, bother .properties  are  also doing-well.  Across the line, at Golden, Wash.,  the Triune mill is being run night and  day, a good force of miners finding-  work in taking out ore to keep the mill  going*. The development here is very  satisfactory, a lot of ore being* already  blocked out and prospecting work being-  kept well ahead. '���-.'���  . At.^.L/Oom'ston much activity prevails. The Palmer . Mountain tunnel  is already in over 230 feet, and as the  driving* is now g-etting in to more solid  formation it is expected that Burleigh  drills will shortly be put in. Mr. Nelson was informed by Mr. Hart, of Golden, that another long tunnel will be  Commenced within 30 days, in connection with the Bull Frog group, Palmer  mountain. ,;v ;/  .; During Mr. Nelson's "visitf our' members of a German syndicate arrived  from Milwaukee for the purpose of putting in a cyanide plant at the Wyandotte, on Palmer lake. Work here will  be started at once and will be pushed  rig-ht along- through the summer.  Gn the return trip it was ascertained  from Mr. Bash that at Canip McKinney, two tunnels had been run in and  the ledge struck in both. An old shaft  is now being timbered up arid other  working-s fixed in preparation for development work on the ledge, which is  said to be looking well. .  Mr. Nelson met with quite a number  of men who intend coming in to Boundary Creek, but they are waiting till  the snow goes off the ground, knowing*  that meanwhile no effective prospecting* can be done.*  The Rathniullen Mining* Company  owning* ten properties between Summit  camp and Pass creek are to start development work immediately. Mr. C. S.  Neilson, one of the promoters of the  Company is also acting as agent for.

'������'<���  Building operations are being extended northwards from the more settled  portion of the town. Two dwelling  houses have lately been erected on the  bench land above the flat, now being  cleared.  During the week logs cut from trees  recently felled on the first addition to  the townsite have been hauled, to the  side of the creek. At hig*h water the  logs will be floated down to the mill  and there held in a boom till required  for lumber.      .        :  The foundations are' being laid of  a new addition, 20x45 feet, which is to  be built to Messrs. Rendell & Co.'s  store on Government street. This addition will be set apart as a show room  for boots and shoes, dry-goods, and  ladies' dress goods,, a large stock of  which the firm have now on the road.  The decided increase of the firm's business of late has rendered necessai-3- the  enlargement of the store, though nine  months a.g*o it was regarded as quite  unproportion teiy larg*e c onsidering the  then existing lo.al trade conditions.  Assessment work is being done on  the Barbara, a high (or steep) grade  proposition on the hillside overlooking  Greenwood on the .south-east, owned  by Messrs. Rendell and Smailes. The  rock now being taken out has a rather  curious appearance, being granite impregnated with copper pyrites, the  specimens shown looking for all the  world like plum-duff, with a liberal  allowance of plums. It assays, however, $14 in gold, which is not at all  bad for surface rock.  xehange  SANSOM   6c   HOLBROOK,  FINANCIAL   AND    MINING   BROKERS.  -ir ir "ir t  Groups of Claims-bought for Stock Companies and Syndicates  ���    OFFICE.
