NE DOKS not often look for humor . in the advertisements of mining- brokers���thoug-h some of them (the  advertisements, not the brokers) are funny enoug-h  in all conscience. But the following- which appears in a  Vancouver paper is well,worth preserving-: "The Providence Mine on Harrison Lake (Trewthewey's mine) wifl  D.V., be shipping ore to the IDverett smelter about the end  of May." Now, Gentlemen, here's your, chance! you've  only to take the "D.V." for granted and buy shares to make  a good thing- out of Providence.  " Advance notices'" of the Government's so-called "railway policy " have appeared in the form of a Bill introduced  in the Legislature on April Fools', day (curious coincidence  that if the time wasn't intentionally chosen),, authorising- a  loan of $2,500,000 for the purpose of subsidizing- the, following- standard g-auge railways at the rate of $4,000 per mile:  (a) For a railway from Penticton to the Boundary Creek  District, approximately one hundred miles,in length :  (b.) For a railway from Bute Inlet to Quesnelle, approximately two hundred and thirty miles :  (c.) For a railway from the Coast to Chilliwack," approximately sixty miles. ��� ���  With reg-ard to No. 1, we fully   understood���it  is  strang-e  the way one gets  hold  of. false  impressions���that  Mr.   F'.  Aug-.   Heinze   had   undertaken   to  build   a   road   between  Boundary Creek and Penticton ,a.nd -that  the Government  had been so pleased with the idea that they had made him a  present, almost forced it upon him in fact, of larg-e" tracts of  land, members  of  the  executive  council  moreover  condescending- to accept  Mr.   Heinze's   invitation   to   a -friendly  dinner at the Driard.    This .is evidently all a mistake.    Or  perhaps we are to have two. railroads  from  Penticton  and  the C.P.R. has a fing-er in the pie.    No. 2, the railway from  Bute Inlet to Quesnelle,' masquerades  under  a  new  name.  It used to be called the British  Pacific, and  the  chance  of  getting a siibsidy at last will  doubtless  please  Mr.   Rithet  exceedingly.    There is nothing- like having friends at court  after all.    No. 3, the railway from the Coast  to   Chilliwack  may be intended as a sort of sop to Cerberus, otherwise the  V. V. & 10., or on the other hand its sole purpose, may,be  to  catch -the Fra'ser valley votes  for  the  Government  at the  next general elections.    The approximate distances  of the  three roads mentioned and whijh it is proposed to subsidize  ag-g-regate 390 miles.    The approximate distance   of  a  line  from the Coast to the Columbia river is 400.    For some thiie  past this line from the Coast to the Columbia river has been  ag-itated for and was  appropriately  termed  the   " People's  Railway" because it would open up the  richest  portion  of  the country and be of immense benefit to the people  of the  populated centres of the Province.    But the'���Government' of  British Columbia have no reg-ard for the views of the people  of  British Columbia, and, therefore, the Government  have  no sympathy with the "People's Railway" project.  ���SK-  '$6  tie  Jfc  1K  Following- are some of the sections of the Bill :  2.���The Lieutenant-Governor in Council may (in addition  to all other moneys authorized to be raised or borrowed by  any other Act of the Province) borrow, or raise from time  to time . . . any sum of money not exceeding- two and  one-half million dollars by the sale of debentures  9.���The Lieutenant-Governor in Council may enter into  all agreements with any company or companies formed for  the purpose of constructing- any railway, to which a subsidy-  is hereby attached, which may be necessary or convenient  for the due construction and operation of such railway, said  agreements shall in every  instance  contain  the  following  provisions, in addition to other matters therein provided :  , a. That unless work is commenced on the railway within  two years from the passage of this Act, and is duly and dili-  g-ently prosecuted to the satisfaction of the Lieutenant-  Governor in Council, all right and claim to the aforesaid  subsidy granted by this Act may be cancelled and forfeited,  b. That the aforesaid subsidy shall not be payable until  the railway is completed and in running- order, to the satisfaction of the Lieutenant-Governor, in Council, nor until  security or guarantees are g-iven for the continuous maintenance and operation of the railway, and no subsidy shall  be payable or paid until after such completion and the giving- of such security or g-uarantees.'  10.���No subsidy shall be granted to a .company for^ the  construction of any railway in respect of which a land subsidy has heretofore been granted by the legislature, except  on condition-that the company in receipt thereof shall undertake to throw open all lands received under its Subsidy  Act to public purchase on the same terms and conditions as  Crown lands can be acquired at the time of the passag-e of  this Act.    .... .  12.���-No company in receipt, of a subsidy under this Act  shall be entitled to collect tells or charges for the carriag-e  of freight or. passeng-ers unless the tariff fixing- the rates  thereof has been submitted to and approved by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council    ....  14.���No subsidy shall be paid before the  1st of July, 1897.  From the foreg-oing* it will be  noticed  in  the  first place  that the Lien ten ant-Governor in Council is g-iven  very, extraordinary powers  indeed.    He  may  raise  money ��� to  the  tune of $2,500,000 j.hejoiay enter into any  agreements ;  and  even the tariff fixing- the freight rates to be charg-ed by the  subsidized roads must be  submitted  to  him  for  approval.  All this would not appear in so bad a lig-ht where it not  for  a matter of a serious nature broug-ht to the attention of the  House by Mr. Williams, senior member for Vancouver. Mr.  Williams' remarks were to the  following-  effect:   That  the  Premier had misled the House with reg-ard  to  the  security  to be deposited with the  Government  by  the   Columbia  &  Western Railway Company in compliance with   section 3 of  the Act ; that no proper security had been ; given ;   that the  Hon. !$. Dewdney, presumably the Lieutenant-Governor  of  the Province, was a director of  the  Company ;   that  in   no  less than nine.places in the Act is the Lieutenant-Governor  in Council vested with power to control the . actions  of  the  Company, "but if the Hon. E}. Dewdney, mentioned as  one  of the directors of this Company, is the same Hon. I��. Dewdney who is Lieutenant-Governor���well then���he   (Mr.   Williams) found himself  at  a loss  what  language  to   use  in  connection with it.    Here we have  a  Lieutenant-Governor  in Council vested with authority to accept bonds as security  from a company of which the  Lieutenant-Governor  is  one  of the directors ! "    Now if Mr.   Williams'   statements  are  true, and there is no reason to think otherwise, the Lieutenant-Go ver nor being- one of the directors of the Columbia   &  Western Railway Company (holding- both positions  at  one  and the same time), not only can have  things  arrang-ed  to  entirely suit the convenience of Messrs.   Heinze,   Dewdney  & Co., the interests of the  public   being-  naturally  enough  meanwhile completely ignored, under the provisions of  the  Columbia & Western  Railway  Subsidy  Act,   1896,   but  he  will also have the opportunity, if the   " railway  policy"   is  carried into  effect,  of  subsidizing-  his   own  Company  for  building- a road from  Penticton   to  Boundary  Creek;   for  clause Indistinctly   points  to   the conclusion   that   a   cash  subsidy will be offered to the Columbia  &   Western.    It  is  the most outrageous scandal that ever disgraced the government of any country.    Apropos, observe  the   "may,"  line  five in the very important sub-section (a) of clause 10.  The returns from the second mill-test of the low-grade  silicious ore from the Le Roi mine at Rossland have been  made public, and show that over 75 per cent, of the values  were saved on the plates and in the concentrates. This is  very satisfactory.

The First Claim Located on Boundary Creek.  The No* 3 shaft on the  Tunnel, near  Boundary Falls, is being- enlarged and  timbered, and application will  shortly  be   made   for   a  crown  grant of  the  claim.    The Tunnel was the first location made, in  Boundary,  having been  staked in the summer of '87 by  Ly.   M.  McCarren, Tom Jones,   Tom  Morgan,  McL/eod and Hart, who came into  the  country   from  Chilcotin   and   Granite  Creek, where they had met  with  little  success.    Before the Tunnel was located the party took up a placer  claim on  Boundary   creek,   from    which    they  cleaned up over $3,000   in , less  than   a  month.      After   the   first  month  this  claim played out and they turned their  attention   to   prospecting  for  quartz.  The discovery of the  Tunnel  was  the  result, and that  winter  a   tunnel  w_as  run in 30 feet, showing up a  fine body  of quartz assaying up to $200.    Three  years later the partners  divided  their  properties,   Jones,   Morgan    and    the  others   taking   claims fat  McKinney,  while McCarren  received  all  interest  in   the   Tunnel.     Since  then  he   has  opened up the  claim  by  running  the  tunnel in 60 feet and sinking shafts at  different spots on   the  ledges���for  the  Tunnel has three parallel  veins 50  to  80 feet apart, traceable  for  nearly  its  full leng-th.    From one of  these  leads  the ore is quartz,  carrying  high  gold  values ; from another, the quartz with  g-alena averag-es 38 ozs. in  silver ; and  the   third,   quartz   with    argillaceous  graphite   schist.     An   assay   recently  made from ore taken  from  a  17  foot  shaft' on this  third'' vein   went $64 'in  gold and .07 oz. silver, and this  is  the  lowest assay ever obtained.    Speaking  recently  of his  claim  Mr... McCarren  said " that if he had a  stamp  mill  on  the Tunnel he wouldn't take the  Cariboo and $150,000 to boot in exchange,"  for the Cariboo lead is only 600 feet in  leng-th,-while the Tunnel's  three veins,  can be traced for more than twice that  distance.  The Ledge Struck on the St. Maurice.  A fine-body of ore was struck last  week on the St. Maurice, in Central  camp, owned by a French syndicate  whose representative, Mons. Gire, has  been prospecting the claim for some  time past to discover the location of  the ledg-e. Some magnificent specimens of ore, being nearly clean copper  pyrites, have; been_ taken from the  shaft recently sunk. The syndicate  are to be congratulated, for on the adjoining claim efforts have been made  from time to time for the last six years  to find the ledg-e, but without success.  Nine claims are said to be located on  this ledg-e, which runs through the St.  Maurice, and where opened up has  been proved to be between 50 and 60  feet wide. On the Washington,, which  lies, however, just south of the border,  the same ledge exists.  L,ouis Bosshart, the well known  prospector and one of the first discoverers of lyong Ivake camp, returned to  Greenwood last Friday, having spent  the winter months in Astoria and Spokane. He had the usual story to tell  anent the talk of Boundary Creek on  the " outside," but added that he had  several conversations with prominent  and well-informed railroad officials,  from whom he learned that every effort  would be made this year to connect  Spokane and Boundary by rail.

A Promising: Claim Near Camp McKinuey.  The Anarchist, owned by Mr.  R.   G.  Sidley, is situated south of the famous  IDureka, in Camp McKinney, and rig-ht  in the fork of the roads leading- to Penticton and Anarchist Mountain respectively.    The claim, which   was  located  soon after the discovery  of  the  camp  by Al. McKinney, Fred. Rice, G. Burn-  ham and E> I^efevre, has three veins of  about   four   feet  wide  each,   running-  parallel and outcropping for  six   hundred feet and within a distance of sixty  feet from outside to outside. The veins  also outcrop ag-ain at a distance of two  thousand feet on the extension  to   the  south,   a   claim  called  the  Dynamite,  also owned by Mr. Sidley.    The  ledg-e  is practically free-milling  and  carries  about 7 per cent; concentrates  consisting ot bismuth, galena and iron.    The  gold is in a very line form and is evenly   disseminated   through    the    rock,  which is well mineralized from wall to  wall.    On   the   footwall the paystreak  is four inches , wide,   and  runs  $36  in  gold to the ton, while the  whole  ledge  averages $9 in gold  and  5   oz.   silver.  Development work up to date  consists  of a  shaft  on   the   north   end  of   the  claim, sixty feet in   depth,   showing-   a,  gradual widening of  the   vein   to  six  feet at the bottom, the last assay g-oing  $10 to the ton.    There are  eight  other  prospect holes along- the ledg-e, from 10  to  15  feet  deep and showing  up  the  walls.    The dip of the vein is vertical,  the  walls  being-  remarkably  smooth.  The formation is granite.    As the  ore  p of the Anarchist is very easily crushed  and a mill if erected could be  operated  by water power, there is a  probability  that   Camp  McKinney  will  ere   long-  have another producing- gold mine.  " Gold and Silver Ores."  A copy of Mr. Hamilton Merritt's  text book, "Gold and Silver Ores;  What is their value?" published by  Messrs. T. R. & J. P. Clougher, of  Toronto, has been, forwarded to The  Times for review. The work, which is  a handy and compact little volume of  93 pages in leather binding, has been  prepared especially in the interest of  prospectors, but will be found of value  to all who are in any way identified  with mining. There should be a great  demand for the volume, and its author  is entitled to hearty thanks for the  trouble to which he has gone. Price  75 cents,; with pocket 90 cents.  CAMP   MCKINNEY   NOTES.  [SPECIAL    CORRESPONDENCE.]  Capt. Currie, one of the directors of  the Minnehaha company, is now here  in company with a builder making arrangements to put up the necessary  buildings on the property. The company is in a good financial position  and is prepared to prosecute the work  vigorously. No money will be thrown  away on costly surface improvements  until it is proved what is below; but  about $12,000 will go into the ground  this year to show up the ore body before the erection of a stamp mill is undertaken.  Owing to a severe epidemic of la  grippe among the children attending-  Anarchist Mountain school, the school  has been temporarily closed. One  death has already occurred, "Bert,"  the 8 year old son of Mr. 10. Cudworth,  having succumbed to the disease. Dr.  Jakes was sent for but on his arrival  the child had been dead two hours.  The funeral was largely attended.

Mr. and Mrs. Robt. Wood will return  to Greenwood on Wednesday next.  Born.���On Saturday, the 3rd rinst.,  to the wife of Mr. T. Humphries, of  Anaconda, a daughter.  Mr. Leslie Hill left on Wednesday  by Morrison's stagre for Rossland and  will probably be absent three weeks.  Mrs. Guthrie .arrived? at Anaconda  this week from Trail, and is nursing  her husband who" is still seriously ill at  the Palace hotel. i'~  Mr. Stephen Taylor can claim the  distinction of being the first in Greenwood to have a telephone in operation  in his place of business.  Dave.O'Neil and Con . Cosgro.ve, two  well known mining men from the Slo-  can, arrived at Anaconda on Thursday  and are staying at the Palace hotel.  The first step towards electric lighting of the streets has been taken by  the establishment of street lamps before the Windsor and Pioneer hotels.  Provincial Constable Deans, of Midway, and   Provincial   Constable  Dins*,  more, of Grand Forks,   have  been   appointed    deputy    sheriffs    for     their  respective localities.  Now that the snow is beginning to  leave the hills the grass has started  to grow very rapidly and near the  L,ast Chance claim in Smith's camp it  is already four inches higii.  The fishing season was opened on  Wednesday by Mr. G. T. Hodgson who  hooked his first trout of the year in the  Kettle river about a mile below Midway.    The fish weighed a good pound.  It is proposed to give a dramatic entertainment at Ana ?onda on or about  the 15th of May. The arrangements  for the affair are' in the hands of  Messrs. Miller and Hind, of that p'ace.  The mails have been arriving very  irregularly of late and a local wag thus  explains why the present system is  appropriately termed tri-weekly: Because the mail comes in one week and.  has a try at it next.  An enjoyable dance followed by an  oyster supper was given by Mr. D. W.  Hicks on Wednesday night to celebrate  the opening of the new Cosmopolitan  restaurant on Copper street. Some  forty people were present.  Mr. M. B. Berg, formerly of Ross-  land, a contractor and builder, has  built an office for his own use near the  sawmill, and intends to reside in  Greenwood. Mr. Palmer, belonging  to the same trade, is building this week  an office on Silver street.  Sam Martin has accepted^ a contract  to haul the Bealey & Co.'s safe, which  weighs 6,000 lbs., in from Marcus. By  the terms of the contract he receives  $100 cash, and another $100 if the safe  is broug-ht through before the 30th of  the month. Considering- the state of  the roads this price of 3c. per lb.,which  would be liberal indeed at any other  .season of the year, is by no  means out  of the way. Mr. Galloway has g-iven  Mr. Naden the use of the townsite  company's, safe for the meantime.  Mr. Randolph Stuart, after spending  several months in Europe, returned to  Boundary Creek yesterday. - He was  accompanied from England by his sister, who is now staying with relatives  in Vancouver.  During the-past week several of  the  new building-s in course of construction  in the town have been   nearly completed.    Russell & Co.'s store now makes a  handsome   addition   to    the    business  blocks on Government  street; Mr. Ja-  cobson's two-storey building- on Copper  street has been rented by  D. W. Hicks  and will be used as a  restaurant ; Mr.  Paton's   roomy   house, on  Greenwood  street will also be ready for occupancy  in a few days.    Greenwood is building  up very rapidly and it is  not at all improbable that in less than a year's time  the population of the town will be considerably over a  thousand.    An excellent indication of the  general hopefulness with which local business men regard the future  may  be  found in the  substantial   and   expensive    class   of  buildings that are being erected in the  town.    Most new mining towns are remarkable chiefly for the  number   and  conspicuousness of "shacks." In Greenwood it is something to be grateful for  that this is not the case.,.  MINING NOTES.  Two prospectors started on Wednesday for Pass creek with, packs, but  were oblig-ed to return on the following  day. The snow in. that neighborhood  is still very deep and. is now so soft  that.it will not even bear the weight of  a man on snowshoes.  The Skylark mine, if it is not already, soon will be the most extensively'  developed property in Boundary. Work  has been going on steadily underground for the past five months, or so,  and the drifts have now been driven  for several hundred feet. The claim  will be surveyed and a crown grant applied for as soon as the snow is off the  ground.  Good-looking- ore, galena, zinc blende  and iron pyrites, is being taken ' from ���  the Highland Queen shaft, which is  now down 16 feet. The two stringers  at the bottom of the shaft have widened out, the one to ten inches and the  other to two feet. The claim is owned  by the Highland Queen Consolidated,  also owning the Big Windy and the  Snowdrop, upon which work is to be  shortly started.  " Jerry," the famous old horse, ag-ed  24, owned by Jim Barker, foreman at  the Skylark mine, met with an accident this week. One day when something-went wrong and the whim was  not in use, the horse availed himself of  the opportunity to slumber and so far  forgot where he was as to fall down.  His side was badly cut by coming in  contact with a jagged piece of rock. ..  The Canadian claim, in Skylark  camp, upon which there are seven men  working, is looking well. The shaft  on the iron-capped lead is down 35 feet .  and good ore, showing copper pyrites,  galena and zinc blende is coming-in.  When the shaft has been further sunk  to a depth thoug-ht sufficient, crosscuts  will be run to determine the width of  the ore body. On the smaller quartz  lead, which is from 8 to 12 inches wide,  the shaft is now down 20 feet. The  ledge is rather broken but magnificent  ore is being taken out.  ^^����^��MMa>-a-<e��>��<4��B>-e<4��-a-4e��-e-4aMMei>-o-<a^fr<0^f  I  \ Garland & Co.,  I  Dealers in-  I Real Estate i  I     And MINERAL.

I*;  i-.i  I  I 7  i ft  II*  A MEETING of the Boundary Creek Mining- & Commercial Association will be  held in the school-house on Monday night at 8  o'clock. Matters of public interest will be discussed, and all residents of the town as well as  members of the Association are invited to be  present, 31-1  The Mother L,ode is being surveyed  preparatory to application being made  for a crown grant to the property.  Jim Fisher and Jack Dufour left on  Monday to work on the Barrow, Dr.  Jim and other claims in Skylark camp.  Development work was started this  week on the Hig-hland Queen. The  present working force will probably be  increased shortly.  The syndicate holding the bond on  the Sunset and Crown Silver claims in  Deadwood camp are calling-for tenders  for. 300 lineal feet of tunneling-. Tenders are to be in before the 20th inst.  An assay from a sample of country  . rock taken a foot away from the D.A.  vein went 23 oz. in silver, or $15.22 for  all values ; while the, paystreak itself  averages 277 oz. in silver and $52.29  gold value, or $224 to the ton.  The men working on the Granite  Falls, in lyong Lake camp, uncovered  last week a ledge of quartz two feet  wide with a paystreak of g-alena at a  depth of 10 feet in the shaft. Assays  were obtained running over $60.  Ed. Sullivan and Jim Waddell returned to Canyon creek this week taking with them a sufficient supply of  powder to last for some months. They  intend continuing the tunnel on the  Colorado to determine the width of the  ore-body.  Good progress is being made in the  Combination tunnel, Providence camp,  which is now in 16 feet. The rock is  becoming mineralized and it is thought  that the ledge, of which indications  are found on the surface, will be struck  within a few days.  Mr. Smith has been compelled to  close down work on the Last Chance,  owing- to the quantity of water which  flows into the shaft from the rapid  melting of the snow on the surface.  Work has been started, however, on  the Republic and is well under way.  The shaft on the Boundary Falls is  being timbered and preparations made  for extensive development work which  will be prosecuted under the superin-  dence of Mr. James Punch, representing the Nova Scotia syndicate owning-  the property, directly the snow leaves  the ground.  A meeting of the Vancouver and  Boundary Creek Mining- & Developing-  Co., Lt., was held last week in Vancouver, when the following were elected as officers of the Company : President, Robt. Wood, of Greenwood City ;  Vice-President, Charles Wilson, Q.C.,  of Vancouver ; Secretary, C. S. Doug--  las, of Vancouver. The capital of the  Company is $500,000 in 2,000,000 shares  of 25c. each.  On Monday next the interest owned  by Kdwin A. Spencer in the Pathfinder  claim, Brown's camp, will be sold by  the Sheriff at public auction at Grand  Forks, to satisfy two County Court  judgments for $1023.35 and $854.55 respectively. The Pathfinder is in the  opinion of experts the best of the developed prospects on the North Fork,  and this interest will be bought at a  price very doubtless its real value.

Another restaurant is to be established on Copper street, in the building-  opposite T. M. Gulley & Co.'s furniture  store.  Charlie Shepuster, who has been in  very poor health for . some time past,  left on Wednesday for the Arrow LVake  springs.  Geo. McKague and W. James have  entered into, partnership arrangements  and now live peacefully together, one  " pole " being sufficient for both.  The regular monthly "duns" are  being sent out from The Times office  this week. Attention thereto is particularly requested at this season.  Sheriff Peraberton, of Ducks, is in  the district on official business. On  Monday he appointed Provincial Constable EHkins deputy sheriff for Boundary Creek.  - * \The sidewalk, for which some time  ago the residents on Copper street subscribed, is being- laid from the Greenwood Mercantile Co.'s-store to the International hotel.  Mr. Snodgrass' little steamer which  was to carry freig-ht from Penticton to  Okanagan Falls, commencing- on the  first of the month, has not yet started  the run, owing to the non-arrival of  the engineer eng-a.ged.to take charge..  It is proposed to hold a church social  and concert on ,Wednesday,. April-  21st. Mrs. McMann has the matter  in hand and is seeking the co-operation  of all interested. The hearty response  she is meeting with augurs well for the  success of the affair.  One of the most a^ute-felt wants of  the Boundary district for a long time  past has been a properly qualified resident dentist. This opening is now in  a fair way to be filled, Dr. W. R. Spencer of Vancouver having intimated his  intention of visiting Greenwood with a  view of locating- here and practising  dentistry.  Ivocal storekeepers experience great  difficulty at the present time in getting  in g-oods from Marcus and Penticton ;  the roads being very heavy, no teamsters are willing to haul. Some consignments of g-oods have been lying*  at Marcus for over a month. Mr. Bas-  sett, however, expected to put five  teams on the Penticton road this week.  Mr. C. M. Shaw, C.F., P.L.S.,  D.Iy.S., of Victoria, will shortly become a permanent resident of Greenwood and will have an office in Messrs.  Sansom & Holbrpok's building. Mr.  Shaw, who is an old friend of Mr.  Sansom, was last year eng-aged on the  V. V. & 1}. R. survey party and was  then favorably impressed with the situation of Greenwood.  Mrs. Shonquest has leased the "Cafe  Royal " on Copper street, and is converting the building into a lodging  house, the carpenters being now at  work partitioning off rooms and making other necessary alterations. At  the present time houses or rooms to  rent in Greenwood are in great demand, and owners of two or three-  roomed shacks obtain quite easily ten  to fifteen dollars a month from tenants.  Miller Bros, have just received a line  of Watches, Spectacles, Alarm Clocks  and Fishing- Tackle.���Advt.  I beg to notify the public that I have taken over Mr. W. B. Paton'S stock  of Furniture, together with the Store on Copper street, and that the present  stock will be at once added to.

As soon as spring opens there will  doubtless  be a rush up the  main  Kettle   river;   and  trie  West  Fork.    This  field, until last year,   had  hardly been  visited by prospectors ; but last  summer a number of claims, some  having-  remarkable surface showings, were located in   the  vicinity   of  Canyon   and  Cedar   creeks. ,   The   ore    is    chiefly  pyrrhotite and copper  pyrites,  resembling- the Wellington camp  ores of the  same class, average samples  assaying-  from the grass roots  between  $10  and  .120 to the"ton.    The formation  of  the  country is -found to be  much the same  as it is in Boundary, the  ledges  lying-  in contacts; for instance,   at  Canyon  creek the country rocks  are  porphyr3r  and quartzites, while  there  are  some  slates   and  schists. <   The  country  is  "fairly open and can be easily reached,  but   prospectors. |are  recommended  to  follow Boundary creek  up-stream  and  make  their  way throug-h  one  of  the  passes to the river,   instead  of  travelling- from Midway to Rock   Creek���the  latter  bein-gf  a very  circuitous  route,  albeit easier going.    An effort  will be  made this year to obtain a grant  from  the Government to build  a  trail  from  Boundary to the Kettle river and West  Fork  camps.    These  camps,   there   is  every reason to believe,   will  ere  Jong  rank very highly in the  estimation  of  mining- men.  Successful Chinamen.  From the Gold Commissioner's report it is lea.rned that the Ah Mat China, company, placering at the mouth of  Rock creek and up the creek, took out  in the neig-hborhood of $6,000 'in dust  last year. What the Chinamen working ground on Boundary creek (abandoned by white miners just previous)  succeeded in making is not known ;  but judging from the size of the bag  from which oh several occasions small  nuggets were taken and paid over to  local storekeepers in exchang-e for  g-oods, they must have cleaned up very  respectable wages.

Mr. Donald Graham, M.P.P., writes  to The Times with reg-ard to the , Government's proposed railway policy saying- he "would like to have an expression of opinion from Greenwood as  quickly as possible, as a g-uide to my  action. The policy would be first-class  were it not for including- a road for  which there is so little necessity as this  British Pacific. I will, however, be  griided in my vote on this question by  the wishes of the people of Bast Yale.  The benefits to be derived by Bast  Yale throug-h immediate construction,  would be hard to calculate ; they would  certainly be very great." On Wednesday night a committee was appointed  at the regular meeting-of the Anaconda  Commercial Club, to draft a resolution  condemning- very strong-ly the proposed  Act to subsidise railroads. This resolution was subsequently laid before the  meeting- and unanimously passed, copies being- forwarded to Mr. Graham, to  the Province and Times newspapers.  A public meeting- will be held in the  school-house at Greenwood on Monday  evening- next, to discuss the matter.  " Hard Lines."  Much   sympath3r   is   felt  for    John  Christie, the discoverer of  the  Nightingale claim  in  Skylark  camp,   who,  after   having-   worked   almost   contin-  . uously during- the past  two  years  developing- and opening- up the property,  loses his title, owing- to the  failure  of  his partners to.pay (as they had agreed)  the expenses connected with the, work.  On Tuesday next the Nightingale will  be sold by the sheriff on a judg-ment in  favor of Rendell & Co.   for $340.    The  development work done on  the  Night-  ing-ale   would  be  equivalent  to  quite  $2,000 of contracted labor.    The claim  has g-ood surface showings and has evidently a large tody of ore in the neighborhood,   but   probably  a   larg-e  sum  would yet have to be spent  in   preliminary prospecting- before it is located.  Curlew Creek Ore.  Mention was made in  The Times a  few weeks ago  of the  discovery  of  a  body of nickel and  cobalt  ore  on   the  Reservation     not    far . from   Carson.  Specimens of this  ore  were recent]y  taken to Spokane and analyzed,  there-  suit   being   that  associated  with  the  nickel and cobalt the ore was found to  carry g-ood values in gold,  silver,   copper and cinnabar.    The discovery that  this ore contained nickel was made  by  a metallurgist of St.   L/Ouis,   to  whom  samples of surface rock were sent.   An  assay   made by  him  returned $28 in  nickel.    Sin^e, however,   a number  of  assays have given values of  from  $48  to  $80 in  this  mineral,   while  at  the  present  market prices  of cobalt    the  ore averages  $50 in  this  constituent.  It also carries 2 per cent, of copper.  A Proposed Board of Health.  Complaints have been made to the  local Sanitarj' Inspector that refuse  from the town is being- deposited by  the scavenger near the roadside on the  Dillier pre-emption, in altogether too  close proximity to the town limits to be  considered advisable in the interests of  the public health. With a wind blowing from certain quarters the nuisance  promises to become intolerable, particularly in warm weather. It is also  feared that the sanitary arrangements  now in force with regard to earth  closets will prove most unsatisfactory  during  the  summer  months.

Rossland and Boundary Mines Contrasted.  Opinions of men who'have worked in  , the mines at Rossland are valuable for  the purpose of comparing  the  relative  merits of Rossland and Boundary. The  other day a miner who  had   been  employed in the Le Roi, War  Eagle  and  Josie and had prospected around Rossland when that camp was in its infancy, stated that the LVe Roi  had  hardly  any  surface  showing  as   a  prospect;  that the. War  Bagle  ledge  was  only  from four to   six  feet  wide ; and  that  the Josie ledge was still smaller, being  only from two to four feet, the ore running from $20  to  $40.    Sometimes the  vein in this last named  mine  pinched  down to one foot and then the average  value to the ton ran up to $100. TheL,e  Roi vein is also  comparatively  sniail.  Take   these  three  properties���and all,  three are recognized' as  great  mines,  paying dividends���and: compare  them  with   the   Winnipeg,     in    Wellington  camp ; the Stemwinder, in Greenwood ;  and the  Mother L/ode,   in  Deadwood.  The Winnipeg is known to have  a  16-  foot ledge, the ore at  the  lowest  estimate averaging $50 and running up to  $2,000 ;    the   Stemwinder  has   at  any  rate a 40-foot ledge and ��� the  ore  averages at  the  lowest  estimate  $20 ; the  Mother L,ode, as shown by  the  tunnel  recently driven, has either  a  ledge or  there  is  an  enormous  deposit  of  ore  over 200 feet  wide,   and  the  ore  runs  from $10 to $50.    The  potentialities of  Boundary Creek are almost  too  great  to imagine.    But the time is now within measurable distance when the world  will be awakened to.the fact.  Water in the R-Bell Shaft.  Mr. John Kehoe states that after  striking the ore body on the R-Bell, he  was obliged to stop work owing, to the  flow of water into the shaft from the  surface. The machinery, however,  which was ordered some time ago, is  expected to arrive now in a few days  when the work will be resumed. The  showing in the crosscut from the bot-  torn of the shaft is "immense," the  whole breast being clean copper  pyrites.     ���   ��� ���      '       ;,. ���  Local Notes.  Joe Baugher, the tinsmith, severely  cut his hand on Thursday with a piece  of tin while making a lantern. The  wound is nearly an inch deep and is  very painful.  Mr. G. B. Taylor, who returned yesterday from a trip to Bnderby, says  that Vernon is now the scene of a genuine mining excitement. Bvery man  on the street carries with him a specimen of ore; moreover most of these  specimens show free gold.    Mr. Taylor  leaves for Rock Creek next Tuesday  and will open a general store at that  place.  Telephonic communication has been  established between Mr. Taylor's drug  store and the hospital. It is now pro1  posed to have a line from Greenwood  to Anaconda and possibly from the  town to the camps.  Sheet No. 4 of the Mining Map of  British Columbia, issued from the  " Province " office, Victoria and Vancouver, is meeting with a ready sale  throughout this district, and is worthy  of the general commendation it has received.. The map includes only West  Kootenay and a part of Bast Yale, but  the intention is to issue .other sections  so that when complete the series may  be mounted together, forming the best  and most reliable map of the province  ever issued.
