SALE OF SHARES IN MONTREAL  The King Company, Owning the Oro Denoro in  Summit Camp, Dispose of 100.000 Shares  Through Mr. Wailach to Montral Capitalists���A Few Words About the Property.  Messrs.   Smith  Curtis  and  Walder-  man Wallach spent Sunday in the city.  They visited the. Oro Denoro mine in  ' Summit canip on  Saturday.    Mr. Curtis is one of the principal shareholders  in and a director of the King-company,  owning- the Oro Denoro, and Mr* Wallach  is  the Rossland mining broker,  whose    large    and    very    successful  sale    of-   King    company's   stock   to  Montreal capitalists brought  himself  and the Oro Denoro into  prominence.  Speaking of his recent trip east, Mr.  Curtis said  that  what  impressed him  most was the keen interest which the  Montreal   investor took in Boundary  Creek   properties.   It   was   no longer  necessary to seek capital in London or  the United States.   There  was plenty  of Money in Montreal  seeking investment in good mining properties.    The  reason that Boundary Creek stands so,  well in Montreal is not hard  to find.  Mr. Jay P. Graves succeeded  in interesting some   of   the   most prominent  business people in< Montreal   in- the  Knob Hill and Ironsides, the Lincoln  . and   City   of   Paris, and   his  smelter,  company.   Montrealers  also  acquired  the B. C.    Now all these veutures have  dealt  kindly  with- the  investors, and  they are ventures which created a good  impression.     Montrealers lost money  in mining ventures elsewhere, but none  ,in   Boundary   Creek.     The Montreal  capitalists are now ready  and willing  to take hold of Boundary Creek properties.    All'.they want is the' assurance  that they are not dealing in wild-cats  and that there is some probability that  the expenditure of money  in development will make mines.  It was this favorable feeling towards  Boundary Creek that materially as-'  sisted Mr. Wallach in the disposal of  100,000 shares < of King company's  stock to leading Montreal capitalists.  Mr. Wallach is an old Montreal newspaper man. He was financial editor  of the Star for several years and was  in touch with the Montreal investors.  They were soon convinced the Oro  Denoro is a big property in a big district, and soon bought 100,000 shares  at 12 cents.  Whether it is good fortune, or intuition, or the shrewd Montrealer takes  advantage of every opportunity to  gain an accurate knowledge of the  property in which'he invests his money,  this is certain, that the money which  he invested in th��. Oro Denoro is just  as sure to return him handsome, profits  as the money invested in the Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides a few years  ago. It was development work which  made the Knob Hill and Old Ironsides  stock go up with a rush, and development work is equally likely to make  the Oro Denoro one of the banner  mines of the district.  The   surface  showings are  of    the  ^fe>  Klondike and,,  Shanty Pattern,  For Office and  Pocket Use ,,,  #��   i5*    ^  SMITH  &  McRAE,  Books, Stationery, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GREENWOOD,     B.C.  <-5^  ^  most flattering description.,, In addition to the smaller leads which are exposed on the surface, there are two  great leads that are traceable across  the property. One is magnetic iron  carrying copper. It is over one hundred feet wide and has been stripped.for  60 feet. The ore in the other lead is a  copper pyrite. It is 80 feet wide. ��� On  the eastern edge of this lead a shaft  has been sunk a depth of,70 feet. It is  more or less iu ore. From this shaft  has been taken ore running as high as  25 per cent, in copper. From several  prospect holes values as high as 31''per  cent, copper, $4 in gold and 18 ounces  silver have been secured. '  It is the intention of the company to  to secure a large' plant for the property. In the meantime the shaft will  be sunk to the 150-foot level, and drifts  and crosscuts run.  Mr-Wallach has been authorized by  the company to sell another 100,000  shares at 25 cents. He expects to return to Montreal in a short time and  feels certain that he can dispose of the  shares. In fact he has already had enquiries and given' options for the  greater portion of that amount. The  sale of the latter block of shares will  give the company over ��30,000 for development purposes.  Messrs. Curtis and Wallach  left on  Monday for Rossland.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  Only Routine Work Transacted at the tast  Regular Meeting.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held on Monday evening.  Mayor Hardy presided and Aldermen  Naden, Galloway, Sutherland and  Campbell were present.  The volunteer fire department asked  to be declared an official body by the  council, to have charge of all fires, to  ;,be exempted from the road tax and  that the council seek an .act of incorporation. The council decided that  full power had been granted the department under'the fire protection bylaw, th at the exemption from road tax  ; would be granted, and the matter of  incorporation was referred to the solicitor.  Several bills were reported  by  the  finance committee and ordered paid.  Alderman Galloway reported that  the necessary papers for the purchase  of the Hall pre-emption had been forwarded to Mr. Hall for signature.  DThe clerk was instructed to call for  tenders for city scavenger work,  tenders to be in by Monday noon next.  A by-law regarding this matter will be  introduced at a later meeting-.  ��� Messrs. Rendell & Co. will be notified  that, the charges for the use of, city  rails will be held against the excavations being . made by the contractors  using the rails.  Alderman Galloway said in view of  the fact that the clerk had offered to  do the work and that of treasurer for  S50 a month, he would make a- motion  that this be the salary paid. Alderman Naden still believed that a man'  should be employed who would give  his whole time to the city and be paid  accordingly. He would second the  motion, however, because of the declaration made by the clerk. The motion was carried.  The by-law embodying the agreement between the city and Telephone  company was reconsidered and finally  passed.  Alderman Galloway, in dealing with  the question of printing, pointed out  that one tender did not specify the  style of type used. He understood  that a material difference could be  made in cost by using different type  and- spacing. The best evidence of  the fact that TuK Boundary Ckkkk  Times did not charge too much was  that the company was making no reductions in their prices.  M.-13'or Hardy suggested that the  matter be referred back and new  tenders called.   '  Mr. Lee of the Greenwood Miner rose  to state that nonpareil was always  used and while his tender did not state  so, it was so meant.  Alderman Sutherland moved and  Alderman Campbell seconded that  new tenders be called for city printing.  The motion was carried.  The council then went into committee to discuss a lengthy procedure  by-law, of which no notice had been  given and which had never been introduced.  V. W. Smith of Spokane is is the city.

The Semlin g-overnment are determined that railway companies must  carry out the pledges under which they  induce the legislature to grant them  substantial aid. The British Pacific'  and the V., V. & E. were two railway  schemes that have been kept alive by  the aid of provincial subsidies, and not  by the enterprise or building powers of  the promoters. Neither company observed the time limit mentioned in the  acts granting them aid. Hon. Joseph  Martin has introduced a bill in the  legislature repealing- the subsidies to  these and other companies. In fact,  all unearned laud and cash subsidies  are repealed except the subsidy of  S4,000 a mile for a railway from Robson to Penticton.  MUNICIPAL ACT.  F. J. Deane, M. P. P., has introduced a bill in the legislature to amend  the clauses, describing- the qualifications for mayor and aldermen. The  following- was subsituted :  The Council of every City Municipality incorporated after the 23rd day of  April, 1892, and of every City Municipality hereafter incorporated uuder the  "Municipalities Incorporation Act,"  .shall consist of a Mayor and not more  than nine nor less than five Aldermen:  (a) After the first Municipal elect-  tifu, the persons qualified to be nominated for and elected as the Mayor of  such City shall be'such persons as are  male British subjects of'the full age  of twenty-one '3'ears, and are not disqualified under any law, aud have  been for six months next preceding  the day.of nomination the registered  owner, in the L/and Registry dffice, of  land or real property in the City of the  assessed value, on the last municipal  assessment roll of one thousand dollars  or more, and who are otherwise duly  qualified as municipal voters :  (b.) After the municipal election,  the persons qualified to be nominated  for and elected as Aldermen of such  City shall be such persons as are male  British subjects of the full age of  twenty-one years, and are not disqualified under any law, and have been  for the six months next preceding the  day of nomination the registered  owner, in the Land Registry Office, of  land or real property in the city of the  assessed value, on the last municipal  assessment'roll, of five hundred dollars  or more, and who are otherwise qualified as municipal voters.  The only difference between the  amendment and the orginal clause is  that the encumbrances against the  property are not taken into consideration by the amendment.  Since the above was "written the bill  got a six-months' hoist.  Fines for Revenue. '  To the Editor: The city replenished its coffers on Saturday last by  pulling- up all the poor unfortunate  fallen women before the magistrate  and fining them. Now, Mr. Editor, I  think that when the city fathers lower  themselves to do this, they lower  themselves to the level of those poor  unfortunate women. As they already  receive the benefit of their earnings���  the same being the wages of sin. They  had far better leave the houses and  save the respectable citizens the degrading- scene of Saturday last.  Caccethe Sckibendt.

THE ORO DENORO is in the Boundary district and adjoins the Emma mine, It is a splendid proposition, The surface  showings have not been surpassed in the district. At the SO^foot level assays went as high as $83,90, Development work is being  rapidly pushed ahead add a power plant will shortly be installed, We have a small block of treasury shares yet to dispose of at 25 cents,  Immediate application should be made to the undersigned, as the price will certainly be raised to 50 cents very shortly.  WALDEMAR,  WALLACH  &   CO.  BIG   STRIKE   ON   THE  MORRISON.  The Tunnel Encounters a Large Body of Rich  < Copper Ore.  There was quite a skirmish for Morrison stock on Saturday, when it became known that the tunnel that was  being -run below the wagon road to  connect with the shaft had encountered  a body of rich ore. The tunnel is in  90 feet and 260 from the working shaft.  It was expected that the ore body  would be tapped by the tunnel SO feet  farther in, so that the strike was a  pleasant surprise to the owners. The  ore is a portion of the ledge upon which  the shaft has been sunk. There is  therefore 260 feet of ore between the  tunnel and the shaft. The width of  the ledge has not yet been determined  to its full extent, but the exploratory  work has satisfied the owners that it is  equal to the big ledges of Deadwood  camp* The strike has so encouraged  the company that Mr. Oliver, who arrived in the city on Sunday, at once  gave orders for the purchase of a steam  drill. The boiler is already on the  ground. The work on the tunnel will  be continued by hand until the arrival  of the drill.  THE   LAST   CHANCE   MINE.  A Plant to Be Installed on This Property at  Once.  A complete hoisting and pumping  ; plant has been purchased by the directors of the Last Chance Mining company of this city, and is now on the  way to the mine in Skylark camp,  near Greenwood, B. C.  " This plant," said Sidney Rosen-  hattpt, the secretary of the company,  "consists of a 40-horsepower vertical  standard tubular boiler, a double  cylinder hoisting engine, capable of  hoisting one ton 250 feet per minute;  a Cameron suction pump, with a capacity of 100 gallons per minute, and  other necessary supplies and tools.  The approximate cost of machinery  laid down will be close on $2,000.  " The Last Chance is one of the oldest locations in Skylark camp, having  been staked by George Cook in July,  1894. It was first secured by a small  syndicate of Spokane capitalists in the  following February for $20,000, and  subsequently a company was formed  i to operate the same. The claim is  crown granted.  "At the time the company acquired  the claim it was developed by two 40-  foot shafts. Average assays from the  ore taken out of the shaft in the north  end of the claim gave S100 in gold and  silver. This shaft was sunk to a depth  of 100 feet and a drift was run south  34 feet, and a, northerly drift  11 feet,  from which a crosscut back was run  29 feet, all'the workings being in ore.  In this 29,-foot crosscut I speak of there  was a rich pay streak of1 from 12 to 18  inches in .width of ruby silver, that'  ran as high as 375 ounces in silver and  $60 in gold to the ton: The shaft became flooded with water and work had  to be abandoned. Then a new double-  compartijnent (8)4 by 4 feet in the clear)  shaft wa's sunk to a. depth of 106 feet  in the center of the claim. This shaft  we propose using for our working  shaft arid and will continue it for a  further ?depth of SO feet. It lies exactly between two well-defined ledges,  one that has already been partially developed by the workings I have spoken  of, which contains gold and gray copper canning rich silver values, and  the other is a pyritic iron ledge that  has little development to speak of.  When the main shaft reaches the 150-  foot level we shall start crosscutting  east and west to tap-both these ledges.  The-mine is equipped with all necessary buildings and a substantial shaft  house, and we are only awaiting the  arrival of machinery to resume active  development.���Spokesman-Review.

The district is attracting more attention than  any other part of the Dominion.  H. -E- McDonnell, general freight  agent, interviewed the business men  of Greenwood on Saturdaj- for the purpose of making some arrangements to  secure sufficient teams on the Brooklyn  route. He was accompanied by Mr.  Koch, a Slocan contractor, who maintained that it was impossible to handle  freight on this route for one and a half  cents. The merchants maintained  that they were quite willing to pay a  higher rate if they had any assurance  that their freight would be delivered  promptly. The only way the C. P. R.  could hope to retain their trade was by  placing an agent in Greenwood and  taking charge of the delivery of goods  to this point. Mr. McDonnell promised  to take the matter up with the company.

Finch by John Dougias.  The Oro and Mabel, two promising  properties iu White's camp owned by  John Douglas of Midway, were bonded  <afew days ago to Edward C. Finch of  Rossland.    The consideration is S3,000,  ���   i       .  10 per cent. down.    The  deal' was  arranged by E. A. Bielenberg.  The Oro and Mabel are two crown-  granted properties located under the  old mining act,' and are therefore 600  by 1200 feet. They are situated about  one mile west of the City of Paris.  The properties contain similar ore-  bodies to other big White's camp properties. There are three distinct veins  on the Mabelclaim. Shafts have been  sunk on two of those to a depth of 50  feet. A 33-foot shaft has also been  sunk on another vein where there is  4 feet of ore. The ore runs well in  gold and average assays have given as  high as $60.  The Oro ore gives higher copper  values. A 20-foot-shaft has been sunk  on a body of chalcopyrite, whicli gave  high copper values and about S3 in  gold. In addition to those shafts a  good deal of surface work has been  done on the properly.  It is understood that Mr. Finch's associates are Mr. Eabaree, Mr. Pope,  Mr. .Ives aud others who have bonded  the Buckhorn and Tintic. In this connection The Times is informed that  although the gentlemen referred to  were originally large owrners of Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides stock, they sold  the greater portion of their stock at  good figures in order to make further  investments. Mr. Rufus Pope, M. P.,  still retains a moderate block in each  company and also in the new smelting  company, but the others have no shares  in the latter compan3\   ���  Mr. Finch was associated with Hon.  Geo. E. Foster in the ownership of a  SlOcan property and of which he was  the successful manager. He recently  sold his interest at a big figure and  decided to turn his attention to Boundary Creek.
