Ltd., Relative to the Purchase of  Machinery for the Big Smelter.   The Progress of the  Work.   Spur Lines will be  Built.  Mr. Paul Johnson, superintendent of  the British Columbia Copper Company, L/imited, left on Thursday for  New. York. He will meet the directors  of the British Columbia Copper Company, Limited, and discuss With them  the purchase of machinery for. the  big smelter. Mr. Johnson has already  received several offers "for,'the. necessary plant and he and .the directorate  of the company- will make the selecticn.  ; Before leaving Mr. Johnson was  good enough to show a Times representative the work already accomplished. The progress made in the last two.  weeks has been remarkable' considering that the work had been carried oil  under the disadvantage of exceedingly  wet weather.;  The ; solid stone retaining wall is  being continued up to the stack at the  summit of site. This.wall when completed will be,oyerT700 feet in length.  The top of the stack, will be 275 feet  above the furnace. The stack itself  will be ISO feet in height. Mr- John-  sou states emphatically that the stack  is of. sufficiently high elevation to  insure no inconvieuce to the citizens of  Greenwood from the fumes. Everything of this nature will' pass high  above the.city.  '-������The- company have deposited with  Canadian Pacific railway the amount  of money required before the latter  company would' undertake the construction, of the three ��pur lines to the  smelter site. The .first spur .wiilicome  in at the 155 foot level, on the site.  This spurwillrun to the stock ore bins  where the-ore cars will be dumped.  The . second spur will be on the 95 foot  level and over it will come the coke  and coal for the furnaces. The third  spur will be on the level of the main  line and will be utilized to carry away  matte, copper bullion or whatever the  product of the smelter may be.  Good progress has been made in the  carpenter, and blacksmiths, shops and  other building's for the workmen. The  boiler room, engine room and other  buildings for the machinery will be  erected, immediately.  In addition to being a smelter superintendent Mr. Johnson is an inventor  and has succeeded in perfecting a  sampling mill that removes all the  objections smelting men heretofore  had   to    mechanical   smelters.      Mr.  Johnson's invention has been patented  by the Union Iron Works of San Francisco; and one of those samplers will  be used at, the Greenwood smelter,  Mr. Johnson ... has not i-the slightest  doubt, regard ing its success. Smelter  men have preferred hand sampling to  mechanical samplers because there was  great difficulty in cleaning a mechanic-,  al sampler and conseqnently there was  always a danger that the value of the  ore sampled might be affected by ore  of higlfer or lower grade which had  previously passed through the sampler!  Mr. Johnson's hew sampler can be  cleaned without waste of time and with  but little effort. It can readily be seen  that a mechanical sampler is far more  accurate than the work done by hand;  The mechanical sampler chooses no-  pieces, each time selecting a fifth part  of the ore as it comes along. The  sampler also possesses the additional  advantage of grinding all the ore by  gravity. It has a capacity of 300 tons  in ten hours and of this amount only  12 tons or four, per cent has to be raised. This means a great saving ofr  labor and machinery.  As the work proceeds it becomes  more apparent that the site selected  for the smelter is an ideal one. . The  series of benches from the main line of  the C. P. R. up to the Deadwood camp  spur were evidently intended for nothing else than a smelter site." From the  ore bins with their capacity of 4,000  tons through the sampling mills, on  through the ore mixing bins and into  the furnace, the' system is a-perfect  gravity .one. The site can also boast  of the advantage of economical railway facilities. Spur lines can be built  cheaply and ore, fuel and supplies of  all' kinds can be handled at a minimum  cost. '      '  THE GRANBY SMELTER,  A Large-Amount of Work Already Carried Out.-  Spur Line Being Built.  ... The Granby Smelting company are  expending, a large amount of money!  upon their works..���-.. Several of the  buildings for the smelter have been  completed. In addition to these two  handsome brick residences have been-  erected near the smelter; cottages for  the men will be constructed across the  river from the smelter and a bridge  will be built so that the men can go  to and from their work: Porter' Bros,  have the contract for the dam, one mile  above the smelter. Owing to high  water this week .it is rather difficult,  but the contractors have successfully  met difficulties uefore and they are  confident they will succeed in completing their contract. '     ',''...  The spur line to the smelter is being-  constructed by P. Welch & Co. The  construction includes some'heavy rock  work along the North Fork. Already  a large force of men are engaged.  The  Hotel  Armstrong  is    the  first-class hotel in Greenwood.  only  THE   CITY   COUNCIL  Recommended,  Sold and  Guarranteed  by... Smith & McRae,  Business Transacted at the Regular Meeting  Monday Night.  Mayor Hardy aud Aldermen Galloway, Sutherland and Fisher were the  members present at the regular meeting- of the city council on Wednesday  evening. C. B'rethour wanted the  position of superintendent of waterworks but his letter was filed.  Messrs-       Pringle     &       Whiteside,  acting for the Greenwood Trading Co.,  wrote in reference to alley way between  Copper and Silver streets. The council  decided to offer  the  Greenwood  Trading Co. and Mr. Fisher S7.50 a foot for  the land   required   for   alley   through  their  lots.    Alderman Fisher strongly  objected.     A. M. Rice advised the city  regarding a 1,000 pound bell for sale in  Toronto.     Police   Magistrate   Hallett  was granted six weeks leave of absence.  Bourke   &   Sera  of  the Ottawa house  complained   of   a  crossing  near their  premises.    The  question   of   granting,  compensation to W. G. Gaunce   for injuries was deferred   a week.    Tenders  will be called  for 400 feet of additional  steel rails.    The  council   endorsed the  petition to   the  government  re  olli-es  in Greenwood. " The smelter bonus an-:!  other by-laws were advanced   a   stage.  The city clerk was asked  to   write  the  attorney-general  suggesting  a saving  | of expense by allowing prisoners to be  j delivered at   Nelson   instead  of  Ka:i;-  loops.  a*  p>  H  ������4  Ben  to  SSL ��*���*.- THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.

Rock Creek is situated half between  Greenwocd and Camp McKinney, arid  within three miles of the international  boundary line. After journeying- eig-ht  or nine miles up the main Kettle river,  one reaches the mouth of the West  Fork, which makes its exit into the  larger stream between two precepitous  bluffs. Near this junction are found  two infant villages,, Bridgeport and  Westbridge. The later place has a few  log cabins, a general store and a log  hotel, where the traveler may get good  frontier accommodation.  Shortly after leaving Westbridge the  completed wagon  road  ends, and the  traveler takes to the trail, with branch  trails to the various camps  along the  route.   The  trip  up this trail I made  with   Mr.    George   Leyson,   the   discoverer of Rossland camp, and also the  the first man to find mineral in what is  now   Copper  camp,  in  the Boundary  country.   It was in 1897, while traveling   up   the   Dewdney trail,   that he  staked out the Lily May, and sampled  some ore on Red  mountain in what is  now the metropolis of the  Trail creek  district.   In  onr party was  also Mr.  George ' McClung,  who,   in  the same  year,   helped  to  outfit the  men   who  found     and    brought    to   light   the  treasuries of Camp McKinney.  The first group of properties of note  which one comes to in ascending the  West Fork is kuown as Kelly camp,  which lies six miles from. Westbridge,  and includes the W. S. claim, a gold  quartz proposition owned by M. Robert  Wood, Mr. C. S. Galloway and Mr.  Louis Bosshart, of Greenwood. An  adjoining property has been bonded by  a mining expert named Cummings,  who at the time of my visit was taking  in a pack train of supplies to open it  UP-    ���   '���.'...'"''      ���.���'������"��� ~      Q      '-.���"���  Just   across   the   river   from   Kelly  camp is Boomerang camp, in which 30  claims have been staked out. Boomerang camp is really an extension to  Kelly camp. A few miles up the river  and at the south side , of it, some  Frenchmen are at work on Nelse  creek.  A. few' miles farther up the' stream  one enters into the midst of a series  of mineral belts, upon which some base  the prophecy that here w ill be found a  region equal to the Boundary Creek  country. At a point some 25 or 30  miles from Westbridge, Beaver creek  flows into the West Fork, and near this  junction the river valley widens out  into a mile or more of beautiful level  land, timbered in places with pine,  spruce and hemlock. Upon this lowland plain a number of ranches have  been taken . up, and in the. midst of  these some enterprising parties have  plotted out the site of a town, which  they call' Beaverton, and which they  say, will almost, if not altogether  equal Greenwood.  During my stay at Beaverton I was  the guest of Mr. Thomas Curry, who  came into the, district a decade or so  ago, and built himself a one-roomed  log cabin. In this primitive abode he  lives still, and he has never seen a trolley car nor an electric light. It is 25  years since he visited a decent-sized  town, and Spokane consisted of only  one house when he passed it on his  way to British Columbia. - But while  he has missed the advantages of civilization, he has established the foundation of what may prove to be a good-  sized fortune. He has staked out,  partially developed and is interested  in some of the best looking properties  on Beaver creek, and he expects before  long to make a clean-up.  The camps which may be said to be  tributary to Beaverton are ten in num-  bur, and they all lie within from on':  mile to nine or ten miles from the  townsite. In the hills immediately to  the west of the place are the following  camps: The Arlington Hill, Hen-  nessy's,. King Solomon, Carmi, and  Cranberry creek, while in the hig-hts  to the east lie Murray's,or Triple Eake,  Curry's, Hills, Washington-and Beaver  Mountain camps.  King Solomon camp, one of those  mentioned, lies on a side hill within  two miles of Beaverton, and consists  of a promising group of claims, upon  which are found several good-sized and  well-defined quartz ledges carrying  copper, iron pyrites and gold and silver values. One of the most prominent  of these claims is the King Solomon  group, including the King Solomon  and Queen of Sheba locations and the  Codtinued on page 3.  Just Opened j&  PHOENIX  A. P.

The King  Solomon    property    boasts   of' three  parallel leads,  6,  5 a.nd.iyi feet wide,  on     the    surface,, respectively. ; The  widest of these, which is a very strongly defined ledge of clear quartz bounded   by   excellent   walls,   is--being developed by means of a shaft, prospecting tunnel and test pits, which workings have proven the  vein to a certain  extent for a distance of 500 feet.   The'  shaft, which is down, 25 feet or so, has  6%   feet of ore in the bottom.   This  vein is very heavily mineralited.   The  five-foot vein has also been prospected  to a limited'extent', and  it  is found to  carry a narrow pay-streak of galena,  assaying as high as $70,to the ton.   I  am given to understand that an offer  of $35,000 for a working bond on  the  ,   property, has recently been? refused by  the owners.  , A very good looking property, which  lies, at   the   summit   of the hill near  the King Solomon group, is known  as  the   Paymaster.     This   property,   in  which Mr. Robert Wood of ,Greenwqod  owns a half interest,  is controlled by  the'���. Vancouver and Boundary. Creek  Development   and   Mining   company.  This corporation j by the way, is one of  the  largest   interested   in   the ��� West  Fprk district, and  it controls some of,  the most promising prospects around  Beaverton.    This   company,   which ,1  have mentioned in previous letters as  owning;   property . in".-, .the; Boundary  Creek and Penticton districts, is an organization formed on  similar lines to  those   upon   which   the  Toronto  and  Western company of Toronto was incorporated.  .It owns or controls a long  list of 'mining clairris,which it promises  to float as subsidary companies,  if on  development   they  take the  status of  mines.    The corporation was organized  by Mr. Robert Wood, the pioneer, and  father of Greenwood,  and one of the  best known, most successful  and most  highly respected citizen of British Co  lumbia.   ��� It   has   a   capitalization   of  $500,000, divided into 2,000,000,  shares  of the par value of 25 cents each, and  so far hardly any stock has been sold,  the original members of the  company  having   found it  possible to carry on  their development work so far unaided.  In   fact less than  11,000 shares have  been   issued, to raise funds to acquire  the   properties   owned   and   for work  done and money expended thereon,and  the balance of the two  million   shares  remains   in: the treasury of the company.    Two   unique   features   of   the  company are that no promoters'  stock  was issued and that the  properties acquired were secured at actual market  values.   The Vancouver and Boundary  Creek company, as already noted,  has  numerous properties in other districts,  than the West Fork, which; have been  mentioned,  or will be mentioned,  in  these series of mining letters.   In this  communication,   however,  only   those  locations in the vicinity of Beaverton  will be taken up.  The Paymaster, which is controlled  by this company, has been bonded for  $20,000 to an English company, who  are carrying development work upon it.  I visited the location and found a  ledge of quartz, three or four feet wide  on the surface, 'opened up by a shaft  and test pits for a considerable distance. The shaft is down 35 feet and  at. the bottom the ledge is well mineralized with iron pyrites and galena, with  good gold values. The other properties  on the West Fork in which the Vancouver and Boundary Creek company  .��� is interested will be mentioned as I  come to them in the course of my tour  of the region.  ��� Some miles to the north of King  Solomon camp lies Arlington Hill  camp, in which the chief property consists of four claims, owned by Mr. F.  A B:elenberg of Greenwood. The  group boasts a fine strong lead carrying copper pyrites and said to assay  $6 in gold and 7 per cent in copper on  the average.  The adjoining location, the Montana  by name, is owned by Mr. W. L. C-  Gordon and Mr. H. Strauss, of Midway. It has a qnartz ledge in a dyke  of horneblend and carries copper  values. A number of other locations  on the Arlington hill boast good showings.  Between King Solomon camp and  Arlington hill is found Hennessey's  camp, in which the best known prop-  erta is trie Knob Hill. I did not visit  Hennessey's camp, but I am told that  the Knob Hill has good surface showings. The Rosa Lee, a claim owned  by Mr. Robert Wood of Greenwood, is  also located here.  To the south of King Solomon camp.  and   a   short  distance  to the   west of;  Beaverton,   lies   Carnii    camp.      The! DrUgglSt  chief property in this group is the  Carmi, which lies'a quarter of a mile  from the main trail to Penticton. It is  owned by Jim Dale and Jas.

Duncan Ross......  W. J. HakuekI.:..   Editor  ..Manager  SATURDAY,  DECEMBER,   2, 1899.  THE C. P. R. EXCURSION.  Tin; Canadian Pacific Railway company  are  acting' wisely in giving the  1 usiness   men   of   Victoria  and Vancouver  an   opportunity   to  visit Kootenay and Boundary Creek.    The business  men of   the coastcities would do  well to. avail  themselves of the opportunity.    They are a shrewd, enterpris-  ,   ing  men,   but   they   require education  along certain lines.   They have missed  opportunities to expand  the  trade of  the coast cities because  many of them  failed to realize that the whole of the  r.r .vince was' not along the sea coast.  Eastern  merchants have secured  the  bulk of the  trade,  not  because they  furnished better goods or better prices;  not because the C. P. R.   quoted them  more favorable freight rates,' but because they  gave  the mining districts  of   southern   British   Columbia closer  attention than did the coast merchants.  If this province is shortly to attain the  leading' position  in the Domtnion, a  position that justly belongs   it because  of   its   great    natural   resources���the  piop'.e  should    show   less   sectionalism   and   more   patriotism.     Victoria  and Vancouver can materially assist in  the   development   of   the   wonderful  mineral   resources   of   the   Boundary  Creek country.    The Boundary Creek  country can increase the trade of the  coast cities.    Today Victoria money is  mildewing   in    Victoria   banks   while  Boundary   money goes  to  the wholesalers of Toronto and Montreal.   There  is no good reason why Victoria capitalists should not  invest-their  money in  Boundary Creek, and  no better reason  why Boundary Creek merchants should  not purchase 'from coast  wholesalers.  Trade can be fostered  and cultivated.  The coast merchants  who come on the  C. P. R. excursion will receive a hearty  welcome.     Past difficulties will be for-  c gotten. "They will be.able to see some  of the biggest mines on the continent.  They can talk business to some of the  most enterprising business men  in the  province.     They    can   satisfy   themselves that they have missed a splendid opportunity to reach  out for profitable trade,  and  they  can arrive at a  determination that so far as  they are  concerned  they  will do everything in  their power to encourage the development of one of the richest sections of  the province.    They will  find the residents ready  to reciprocate their good  intentions.    East  and "west, coast and  interior will be bound more  closely together and a united province will work  out   that  glorious  destiny   that  is  in  store for British Columbia.  Bank of Montreal-  No better criterion of the rapid  growth and. development of this country can be found than the showing  made by a financial institution which  has been closely associated with busi  ness interests of the country and  which has. always been found in the  vanguard of progress. The statement  of the Bank ef Montreal for the half  year ending October 31st indicates not  only that this great banking institution is itself doing an increasing and  profitable business, but that as the  bank's interests extends throughout the  Dominion, it also shows that the trade  and commerce of the country was  never in a more flourishing condition  than during the present year.  Notwithstanding the reduced rateS'Of  iiterest for money, which have prevailed of late years, making it a difficult task to obtain the same returns as  formerly, the hank has earned its  standard rate oi dividend live per cent  for the six months, an" has been enabled to make an addition to the already large amount to the credit of  profit and loss. The net profits for  the six months were $658,161, and exceeding those for the corresponding  period of last year by 5529,023. After  payment of a dividend of five per cent  for the period there remained $58,151,  which with the balance of profit and  loss account on the 30th of April last  brought up the balance at the end of  October last to the large sum of SI,160,-  954. This is an increase of $179,626.  The balance of profit and loss carried  forward for the new half year is equal  to 963^ per cent of the total dividend at  the rate of ten per cent for the current  year. The next ha.f yearly dividend  is not only in hand, but there.is an addition thereto the sum of S560.954, c f  unappropriated profits. The total  liabilities of the bank to the public are  S.j.634,608. an increase  ol   c 13,536,285,  and the total assets are S83,3^7,384, an  increase of $13, 715,791. The circulation of the bank's notes which is $7,-  153,857 has an increase of 838,640,  and deposits amount to $56,479,963  showing an increase of $12,718,135. Of  these $12,628,385 do not bear interest,  and $43,851,570 are interest bearing,  the increase in the former being $451,-  622, and that in the latter $12,266,513;  Current loans have an expansion of  $7,313,177, the total of these being $46,-  198,959. A special feature is the small  amount of byerdue debts $34,834, in  which there is a reduction of $17;768. A  strong feature of the statement is the  large amonnt of assets which are -in-  mediately available, the amount standing at $36,524,138. In this too there is  an increase from last year, the amount  of the increase being $6,433,891. It will  be noticed that the Bank of  Montreal has no call loans. This half  yearly statement is one., which should  be very satisfactory to the shareholders  inasmuch as the regular dividend of  five per cent is more than earned; thus  doing away with the necessity of im-:  pinging upon ���the reserve fund, which  still stands at $6,000,000.  , Address Wanted.

It is being constructed  with an incline towards the mouth of  six inches in every-100 feet. This dip  enables the muckers to handle their  loaded ore cars by gravitation, and the  slight incline also serves to drain the  working  The examination of the interior of  this big' working is an interesting  operation. It cuts through country  rock of diorite and gneiss, interspersed  with dykes of porpliyritic quartz. Up  to date the tunnel has cut about a  dozen of the ledges which outcrop'on,  the surface and some. lesser blind  stringers besides. The veins thus intersected appear to vary'trom a few inches to forty feet in width, the wider  ledgesconsisting of bodies of quartz  intermingled largely with losses of  country rock.

It is also 'stated that average  samples taken from the thirty out-  crpppirigs on the top of .'the hill went  about $16 to the'ton.

Smith, the traveling  representative of- the, Toronto World,  who has spent several weeks in visiting the different mining camps of the  west, has just taken in the Palmer  Mountain district, and gives it in the  following interesting write up :  1 Loomis, the central point in this district, is a settlement of 200- people,  which before the general financial  crash of the early '90s experienced a  mining boom on a small scale, and it  is now springing into prominence  again. It has the reckless atmosphere  of the small American mining camp,  and constitutes a stamping ground for  a little crowd of tin-horn gamblers and  would-be bad men. Several hotels,  saloons and general stores are now  driving a lively trade.  The chief interest in the camp centers in an undertaking of considerable  note from the mining engineer's standpoint. I refer to what is known as the  Palmer Mountain tunnel. Front the  valley of Sinalegan creek near Loomis.  Palmer mountain rears its head 4,200  feet into the air, and some 5,000 feet  above the sea level. Upon one slope  of this height, between the base and  the summit, are located some fortj'-  four mineral claims, forty-two of which  are owned by one. company. Running  across these claims upon the side hill  have' been unearthed some thirty  parallel quartz ledges. The whole  mountain is thus ribbed with leads,  and it is to tap these that the tunnel is  being driven by an organization known  as the Palmer Mountain Gold Mining  and Tunnel company. This tunnel,  which is now in 2,400 feet, has already  attained a vertical depth of 1.000 feet.  It is'to be driven in all 8,600 feet until  it comes under the apex of the' mountain where it will give a back on the  ore bodies there tapped of 4,200 feet. In  other words, the tunnel, if successful,  will be one and a half miles long and  will give a maximum depth of three-  quarters of a mile of ore.  Judging from the dimensions of this  tunnel and the character of the work  being done in it the management proposes to make it a permanent affair.  It is from 8 to 18 feet  in  width   and is  and Ah Ling, who have a shaft down  18 feet. They have not yet ;gotten  through the iron capping which at-  'trac.ted_them to the location, but. they  are sinking further to ascertain' what  they have. ���. ���  A little further to the south lie the  Maud M. and Mary K. claims,iii which  Mrs. Robert Wood of Greenwood, owns  a half' interest. These claims have  good quartz ledges.  Still farther to,the south, upon Cranberry creek, a tributary to the West  Fork, is found another, promising  mineral belt. The best known properties in this camp are, perhaps, the  Boston, Toronto and St. Louis locations, known as the Boston group.  These' are owned' by Messrs. J. A.  Cameron, D.R. Campbell, A, Branson  and John Gradin of Greenwood. This  group boasts of a quartz ledge 18 feet  wide, on the''surface,' carrying a six-  foot pay-streak of ore, which is said to  assay over $8 in gold and silver. The.  tunnel,, which is being .driven from a  side hill to cut the ledge at a depth of  60 feet, is now in 45 feet, and is being  pushed as rapidly as possible.  Having; now: disposed of the camps  lying to the west of Beavertoti, I will  next note the chief belts found ; in. the  hills.to the east of the townsite^  Of these, the most northerly, and 12  or 15 miles distant, is Triple Lake or  Murray's camp. Among the properties  in Triple Lake cemp is the Siver Dollar, owned by Messrs. Peterson and  Newman. It has a fourteen-foot ledge  of quartz, carrying arsenical iron aud  good values. The Barnato claim has  a four-foot ledge of arsenical iron,'anil  the Mogul a quartz lsdge carrying iron  and copper'pyrites.  A claim known as the Kingston is  owned by Mr. Robert Wood of Greenwood. It has a four-foot ledge-of  arsenical iron which is said to,assay  $15 to the ton in gold on ah . average.  The same location boasts a quartz lead  carrying telluride ores, picked samples  of which have run from S72 to $124 to  the ton in gold. The Boston, an adjoining . claim, is owned by the same  parties, and the Foot Hill, controlled  by H. Strauss and S. Bannerman, has  an eight-foot quartz ledge which is said  to run $14 in gold to the ton.  The O. K. group includes several  properties, and boasts a wide surface  showing of pyrrhotite, assaying S3 to  $15 on the surface. The group is  owned by Messrs. Matthewson and  Thorne.  Another group of properties lying to  the northeast of Beaverton is known  as China Creek camp, situated upon  China creek. A mining expert by the  by the name   of Roberts, representing  OORNER COPPER AND DEADWOOD ��T.  English capital, has secured the Butte  and Helen, two claims boasting an  eight-foot ledge of magnetic iron,-car-  rying copper and gold. Close to this  property is the .Devlin location, which  is said to have the same ledge, but upon which no development work has  been done. This property is owned by  Joseph A. Devlin and J.   H. Bramlett.  Some miles to the south, and within  a ct-uple of miles northeast of Beaverton, is Hill's camp, the chief property  in which, is the Sixteen to. One. This  property is held at $15,000 cash.  I now come to Curry's camp, lying  on Curry creek, within a mile or so  due east of Beaverton, and, judging  from surface indications, one of'the  best camps in the Beaver Creek country. The properties in this camp, nine  or ten in number, are situated on  either side of the deep gulch through  which Curry : creek runs, and they jare  so situated as to form first-class tunnel propositions. Along the creek,  moreover, can easily be' constructed a  wagbn rdad.leading up to the claims.  The surface indications in- 'this 'camp  are first-class. Quartz ledges and out-  croppings of pyrrhotite and iron cap-  pings are numerous. One group; of  claims in this camp includes the Com-  stock, Mayflower, Atlantic Cable, Yellow Rose, and Iron Horse. These are  owned by Mr. Robert Wood of Greenwood, Mrs. Ida G. Thompson of Midway, and Thomas Currj- and Ah Ling  <>f Beaverton, and. they have recently  tittan bondel for a large figure.  The Comstock, which lies on both  oidos' of Curry gulch, has a five-foot  ledt;o of quartz and decomposed vein  .natter, carrying iron and copper  pyrities and galena, with values chiefly  in gold and silver. An incline shaft  has been run in 20 feet on this deposit,  but the ledge has not yet been gotten  in place. Upon the same claim is  found another extensive showing of  quartz.  The Mayflower hasa ledge from four  and half to five feet wide, composed of  bluish-gray quartz, carrying arsenical  iron and occasionally panning gold.  This ledge has been traced for 400 feet  and the gold values are said to be good.  The Atlantic Gable has good surface  indications, consisting chiefly of a  strong iron capping, through which a  shaft has been run down 25 feet. It  shows up a ledge of pyrrhotite and  Codtinued on pajre 6  ��g= ed on Sunday, August 13th  "*$?������' MEALS AT ALL HOURS.  Wi Log Cabin Hotel Near Brewery.

Continued from page 5.  and quartz carrying gold values. The  ledge is found in place on the foot-wall  and varies in width from one to three  feet all the way down the working.  What is apparently the same deposit  has been opened up at two other points  within 600 feet of the shaft. These  surface openings are upon a side hill  and offer a good tunnel site.  The Yellow Rose has upon the. top of  the precepitous bluff, which crosses it,  a huge outcropping of pyrrhotite 15 to  25 feet wide. The ore upon this location resembles in appearance that  found in the Winnipeg mine, in Wellington camp.  On the Iron Horse, another claim in  the group, I saw another big outcropping of pyrrhotitie and ..iron, fully 22  feet in width. This surface showing  occurs on the face of the steep side-hill  overlooking Curry creek. The out-  ' cropping seems to be solidly mineralized right across. Gold values as high  as S25 to the ton have been gotten on  this claim. Parallel with the big iron  outcropping runs what is apparently  an extensive ledge of white quartz,  highly mineralized in places. Both  these parallel ore bodies have a dip of  45 degrees.into tlie side hill, and both  of them are well defined and stand out  distinctly from the country rock.  So far the work done upon the Iron  Horse consists only of a 30-foot tunne1,  run into the quartz, and a small surface shaft in the pyrrhotite. The pyrrhotite deposit has been traced for  some distance across the property.  The next location in this camp is  called the Black Diamond. It is owned  by Robert Wood, John Olson, M. J.  Phelan and F. Chadler, and is under  .'���" bond to the Vancouver and Boundary  Creek Development and Mining company. The claim boasts a six-foot  quartz ledge outcropping on the side  hill and showing galena, copper and  iron pyrites. This, is a strong lead,  with well defined walls, and it has been  traced acr6ss the gully to the Maple  Leaf. The gold values carried by this  property are said to be good.  The Maple Leaf, just mentioned, is  owned outright by Mr. Wood of Greenwood, and, as.already indicated, it has  an extension of the Black Diamond  vein. The ledge upon this property is  strongly defined, and has a surface  width of from four to six feet. The  surface development done upon this  ledge shows it to be a true fissure vein,  cutting the country formation of dio-  rite. This lead is well: mineralized  with galena and copper pyrites, and its  values are chiefly in copper and gold.  The Maple Leaf has two other leads.  Adjoining the Maple Leaf alongside,  lies the Deacon claim, owned by  Thomas Curry, Mrs. Ida G. Thompson  and Ah Ling. This property, which  lies upon a side hill, has a network of  quartz ledges from one foot to over  two feet in width, and traced for some  d-stance on the surface to an adjoining  claim. One ledge opened up by a surface pit shows a pay streak of copper  and galena. ,  *-.The Mountain Bell adjoining the  Deacon, is owned by Thomas Curry  and Ah Ling, and, like the Deacon,  it has a network of small quartz ledges.  Ten veins in all have been counted upon it, some running north and south,  some east and west, some across and  with the formation. Very little development has been done upon either  the Deacon or Mountain Bell, but these  together with the Maple Leaf, would  make a tunnel proposition. A tunnel  run from either side of the. hill, upon  which the properties lie, should -tap  several of the ledges.  Immediately to the south of Curry  camp and within a mile or so of Beaverton, lies a belt which might be designated as Washington camp, and in it  last June was located a group of claims  which promise to rival any deposit yet  discovered in the Boundary Creek country. I refer to the ".Va.shington, Idaho  and Mountain group. These properties  were staked out by Messrs. R. E.  Pitcher, John Marshall, A. H. Marcall  and J. W. Connick. They themselves  started development work upon it,with  the result that within a short time they  made, very near the surface, one of  the most successful strikes of the year.  On the Washington claim they opened  up an extensive ledge of high grade  pyrrhotite, galena and carbonates of  lead. Assays as high as S2S in gold  and S60 in silver to the ton were gotten  and the find has done as much as anything else to attract attention to the  West Fork district. Within three  months after the staking out of the  claims they were bonded for S100,000,  10 per cent, being paid down in cash  by R. E. L. Brown of South Africa  fame, commonly known as "Barbarian  jirown." The properties are located  on a high elevation, probably 6,000 or j  7,000 feet above seal level, and fully 2,- I  000 feet above Beaverton, and at the  time of my visit, which was made on  the last day in September, a heavy  snow storm was in progress. I however, was able to examine the outcrop  before it was hidden by the snow. The  now famous lead upon the group runs  across both the Idaho and Washington  claims; it occurs in diorite and is at  least from 15 to 25 feet in width. It  carries high grade shipping ore right  on the surface. _An open cut on the  Washington shows seven or eight feet  of solid pyrrhotite on surface, besides  an extensive outcropping of galena  and carbonates of lead alongside. At  the 'bottom of a 30-foot shaft on the  same lead on the Idaho there is 12 feet  of ore.  The Montana has a parallel lead of  the same character and the owners are  lucky enough to have three other  claims of the same character, which  are said to carry the Washington,Idaho  and Montana leads. Six men are employed on the property and new cabins  have just been completed. '.',..'  Close to the Washington-Idaho group  and farther down the hill in what is  known as Beaver Mountain camp, lies  the ' Bell claim, owned by John Bell  and others. The ledge upon this property, which is believed to be a continuation of the' Rob Roy deposit, constitutes a tunnel proposition and carries  pyrrhotite and galena. The Bell property is said to be held at $60,000 by. its  owners. ..���;  One of the most promising properties  that I saw in the camp is the Rob Roy  owned by Robert Wood of Greenwood,  and under option to the Vancouver and  Boundary Creek Development and  Mining company, before referred to.  This property boasts two leads, one of  quartz carrying iron pyrites and gold,  and the other a fine led-ge of pyrrhotite  and galena. The deposit, which was  recently crossscut by an open working,  is fully eight feet wide near the surface.  The ledge matter is for the most part  highly mineralized, and specimens of  ore recently assayed run up into hundreds of dollars to the ton. Mr. Wood  now has a gang of men building  cabins aitfl sinking a shaft on this iron  ledge. As already .noted this lead is  believed to be the same as that which  occurs on the Bell and it hasbeen  traced over onto the next location,  known as the Sally.  The Sally is "also owned by Mr.  Wood, and bonded to the Vancouver  and Boundary Creek Development and  Mining company. It has the Rob Roy  iron lead and also a quartz lead apparently-running into that lode. This  quartz vein is four feet wide and carries a foot of galena, assaying $200 to  the ton.  I spent some days in the camps on  the West Fork and, judging from indications, I should not be surprised if  within a year or two Beaverton becomes, quite an important center and  the rsurrounding camps become only  secondary in importrnce to thrse  tributary to Boundary CreekJ What  the district immediately needs is the  completion of the wagon road from  Rock Creek to Beaverton,for at present  the mining operations are hancicapped  for the reason tha^ all supplies and  machinery have to be taken in on- the  backs of pack horses.���Frank D.

There will be  divine service  in   the  Methodist church   on   Sunday,   in the  morning-   at   11   and  in the evening at  '7:30.  The city hall is nearing completion  and will be occupied in a few days.  Dr. Spanky, late of Halcyon Plot  Spring's, has arrived in Greenwood.  He will practice here.  The Presbyterian   church .will   hold  . service, hereafter  in   Barrett's hall at  11 a. ni. and 7:30 p. m.    Sunday school  at 2:30 p.  m.  Fritz Haussener, who intended going  into the wood business, was unable to  secure wood choppers who would tackle  dry trees and consequently decided to  drop out of the business.  ' The Greenwood voters' list for the  year has been completed. -The  reg-istered intimber of voters in the  North ward are 168, aiid the South  ward 213, making- a total of 381  votes.  E. A. Bielenberg, the , well known  mining- man, leaves for New York  next week in connection with the Arlington-Burns company, whose shares  will shortly be placed on the market.  J. P. Harlan, one of the owners of  tne Marguerite in Deadwood camp, returned tothe district this week. Mr.  Harlan served with the South Dakota  regiment in the Phillipines, and distinguished himself as a scout. He is  now Serg-eant Harlan.  A hot-air furnace is being- placed in  the Methodist church this week. The  furnace is a Hillborn, manufactured  at Preston, Ont. The trustees of the  church are determined to make the  building-- comfortable whatever the  cost may be.  Mrs. Hattie B. Schenck, who with  hertwo sons, has resided here the past  summer, left this week for her home in  Minnesota. Mrs. Schenck has been  gaining- some credit in the literary  world, which is well deserved, for she  is a writer of ability.  The Central camp road is nearing  the No. 7 mine. Unfortunately, however, all the money subscribed by the  citizens;and appropriated by the government has been exhausted. The  board of trade wired the government  requesting- an additional appropriation  next year. Should the government  promise this, the work will be continued until the road is completed. ���  Rev. W. A. Robins, M. A., has arrived from England and has assumed  charge of St! Judes Mission in the city.  Mr. Robins was educated at Marlborough and Trinity college, of Oxford,  taking his degree in 1891. He worked  for six years in the famous parish of  St. Mary's Redcliffe, Bristol, where the  ..majority of the people belong- to the  laboring- classes. He holds services in  Mrs. Foreman's hall next Sunday  morning- and evening-.  November was a busy month in the  Greee'nwood custom house and if the  volume of business transacted continues, Collector of Customs McCut-  cheon must be furnished an assistant.  During the month the collections  amounted to 58,326.33, which compares  most favorably with any of the other  offices in the interior. The inland  revenue departmement, which is connected with the customs office, also had  a busy month. The collections were as  follows: Tobacco, $127.13; malt,$185;40;  spirits, $2,005.61; a total of $2,318.14.  ported later, v. Col. Northcott,. Lieut.-  Col. Stafford, Capt. Earle and Lieut.  Long were killed. The cable is slow  in giving the extent of casualties. Col.  Coiviile, of the Guards brigade, takes  command until Methuen recovers. A  junction was effected yesterday between troops at Mooi river river ��� and  British forces, at Estcourt, and all  moved to Frere. On advance to this  point 2,000 Boers were seen retreating  towards Colenso.  Ladysmith is reported to be still safe.  News of its fall provoked frantic joy  in Paris.

London, Nov. 29���A cable from  Cape Town states that General Lord  Methuen defeated the Boers in one of  the most desperate and bloody battles  of modern times, lasting ten hours,  in the vicinity of Modder river.  Eight thousand Boers stroug-ly entrenched, with two large siege guns,  four Krupp machine guns and rifles  were finally driven from their position  at the point of the bayonet.

An item in regard to the recent  strike on the Winnipeg in the Greenwood Miner of last.week,.and copied  from the Rossland Miner, is without  foundation, except that the; ledg-e crosscut is 50 feet in width. A representative of theNews visited the Winnipeg  on Tuesday last and was informed that  T. Edgar Plewman had not been at  the mine since the strike was made.  No one, except persons employed in  the mine, has been allowed down the  shaft since President Mcintosh left for  the east, so it is impossible that  samples could have been taken from  the ledge, or assays made. The item  is very misleading, as assays heretofore have been much higher than S16  to the ton, and there is no reason to suppose that the new ledge is of lower  grade than other bodies in the mine.  Any one acquainted with Edgar. Plewman���not Blewman���would hardly care  to quote him as an authority on mining, as his.only experience has been in  the capacity of receivers' watchman on  the O. K. at Rossland. Previous to  coming to this country he served a few  years in an English printing office  learning to set type. It is not reasonable to suppose that either occupation  would .qualify the g-entleman to pose as  a mining engineer. But this country  can produce some wonderful freaks  with M. E. after their names, and T.  Edgar Plewman is quite justified in  making reports on mines, if he can  nd editors foolish enoug-h to publish  rot of that kind. Mr. Mclntush, manager of the Winnipeg, will not be' back  from Montreal for a couple of weeks,  and until his return the values of the  new lead cannot be obtained. It is  supposed here that the item was published for the benefit of stock manipulators in Rossland,���Phoenix News.  Work has been commenced on tunnel  No.  3 in   the  Gold Drop.-; The tunnel  will   be   run  ISO  feet  and an upraise  made to connect with the shaft, which  is now down   about  40  feet.    It is   the  intention to run the tunnel 500 feet, at  which   point  it   will   have  a  vertical  depth of 400 feet.    No. 1 tunnel is now  in   about 225 feet.    At 250 an upraise,1  will  be  made to the surface for venti-j  lation purposes.    A winze will be sunk  from the tunnel on the ore body, and  drifts' will  also  be  run on the ledge. ]  About 225 feet of ore have been crosscut j  in this tunnel, averaging about S24 to I  the ton.    The machinery for the mine ;  is now at the Greenwood station,  and  will  be  installed   within   the next 3  daj'S.    It   consists  of   a   boiler, hoist  pumps,   10-drill   air   compressor,   mi-  A boiler house, 24x24  The building for  the  already     completed,  six months the Gold  regular shipper,   and  from   the present  ore  body  crosssut,  should  prove one  of the largest shippers in the district.  R. Lyons and Geo. Lemon have returned from the Kettle river, above  Rock creek, where they have been  working on the Commonwealth group  of claims for the past five months.  The work consisted of a 75-foot shaft  and a 60-foot crosscut from the bottom  of the-shaft. The property is owned  by Hugh Reid and others of Sault Ste.  Marie.    Messrs.

Besides work done  on the Commonwealth, they did an as  sessmetit on' the Gabe, a property  owned by them in Smith's camp.  The Brooklyn has been drifting on a  nice body of ore for the past week.  Drifting is being done from the 150  and 250-foot levels. It was reported  that a blind lead had been discovered,  but Superintendent Robins states that  this is not so. It is the same ore body  that tliey have been, working on for  the past year, the only difference beiug  that it has become richer with depth.

The  property is owned by Barbarian Brown.  Alex Sharpe, the superintendent of  the Boundary Creek Mining and Milling company's properties has returned  from Rossland and Trail.    He recently  sent two'carloads of ore from theGold  Bug to the Trail smelter. This ore, in  Mr. Sharpe's opinion, is the highest  grade ever sent to the Trail smelter.  Mr. Sharpe has just been appointed  superintendent of the Iron Colt mine  at Rossland, and will leaue for there in  a few days.
