Vol, I,  GREENWOOD CITY, B.G, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1896,  No, 16,  TOWNSITE   Or   MIDWAY.  The beautiful flat owned, by the Midway Townsite Company on the banks of the Kettle river was- originally preempted by a settler named Eholt, nearly twelve years ago.  la the year 1893 it was purchased by Capt. R.' C. Adams, of  Montreal, and others, and surv^'ed into town lots. Capt.  Adams' account of how he came to call the town Midwaj' is  ra,Lher interesting: He says he puzzled for days thinking  of a name that would be both suitable and catching-. What  he wanted was a name easy to pronounce and easy to  remember, bat to name a town is not so easy a task after  all. Those who know Capt. Adams, however, also know  that even in a matter of this kind he would employ original  methods,���and he certainly did. He went straig-ht through  Webster's Unabridged till he came to the letter " M,'"���how  long it took him he does   not  say���and   "Midway"   inime-  The advent of a saw-mill was a great day for Midway. Mr.  Powers, one of the owners, can very amusingly describe the  adventures his unfortunate boiler went through on its journey from Penticton before it was safely set in position and  the first log sawn. ,The Boundary Hotel was next built by  Mr. McAuley, and soon after the pretentious building known  as Palmerston's hall was erected, the lower storey of which  is occupied by Mr. McNicol, the pioneer storekeeper. Then  we must not fail to mention that auspicious occasion when  the " Advance," a paper formerly published at Fairview,  was for the first time issued at Midway. In due time a  blacksmith built himself a shop and forge, an assayer  opened an office, a livery stable was erected, and carpenters  were attracted to the new town. In 1895 several buildings  were erected, including the government offices and lock-up ;  Mr. E}. A. Hain, the postmaster, also opened a store for the  sale of tobacco and fancy goods.

It was short and had a pleasing  sound; moreover it expressed distinctly two ideas ^topographically and geographically correct; The town is exactly  in the centre of the whole district, and is also the midway  point between the Rocky and the Selkirk ranges. So the  town was called Midway accordingly. Had Capt. Adams  remembered the ill-omened words written by his fellow-  countryman, the great L/ongfellow���  " Midway so many ills appear,  That he who ling-ens'longest here  Sees most of care."  He might possibly have gone on through the dictionary to  " O." But then, happily, the worthy trustees of the town-  site are not superstitious.  The first townsite agent was the late Mr. Palmerston,  who worked energetically in the face of many difficulties in  the interests of Midway. The building now known as the  Lancashire House was built by him and cost nearly  $2,000.  two handsome houses have been built by the townsite company for the purpose of renting, and an office for Mr. A. K.  Stuart, their agent. Recently a number of lots have been  sold on building conditions, some of the purchasers having  already complied with the requirements of their agreement  and "btiilt neat cottages on their sites; others will follow  suit in the course of the next few months.  The Midway Townsite Company was lately re-organized  and capitalized for $60,000, and the directors now evidently  realize that the time has come when more energetic methods  must be employed if Midway is to keep pace with the other  towns of the district. Two schemes are projected for next  spring- which, if carried out, will assuredly benefit the place  to a great degree. The first, of these, to irrigate the flat  and-to supply water for domestic purposes by the construction of a ditch from Boundary creek, is of paramount importance, and it is surprising that this���the   most  essential  taft  'IF*  'm  ffev^i  .- <���  s-v-fc  V-:  ������^  r**-  ? :?������  ���:i  \p"--  ���: -i  ''"'���A  F'l'  '���:;  Sft'->-  ''"���'!

':"���  S ���-t ' *  '.VI  &���"�����.'���  i. v; THE   B OUN DAEY   C P E E K   TI ME S.  to make Midway a desirable residential  spot-���has been so long-  delayed.    The  project   of   building-    a    wag-on    road  throug-h   the    Colville   reservation   to  Curlew creek, and thence on to Carson,  is also admirable, though it now transpires that the determination of the In-  v dian   Department   at  Washington   to  evict the  white  settlers  from  Nelson  may affect the construction of the road.,  At the present stage of the  development of the Boundary creek district it  is futile to predict what part the  present established towns will play in   the  future history of  the  camp.    One has  to take into consideration the admitted  callousness of railway companies tb individual interests.    At the  same  time  there are few sites in British Columbia  more favored by nature  than Midway.  While situated at some  distance  from  the principal mining-  camps  of  Boundary, the roads centreing in  the  town  are all down grade.    There  are  mines  to the rig-ht of it, mines to  the  left  of  it, and mines all around it, not to mention the large deposits of coal at  Rock  Creek.   The townsite company are now  corresponding -  with     an     American  smelting firm with a view to the   erection off reduction works at Midway.  ODD^FELLOWSHIP.  A meeting was  held  in  the  school-  house* on   Saturday   evening-  for  the  purpose of taking some  definite  steps  . towards   the   organizing-  of   an  Oddfellows' lodg-e on Boundary Creek.    As  at former meetings Mr.   Thos.   Hardy,  of Anaconda, presided, and  to  him   is  due in no small degree  the  successful  outcome of the , meeting.    Voluminous  correspondence was read by  the secretary,  and  commented upon  by  members present.    Finally five  Oddfellows  gave in their names   as  charter  members of the proposed lodge,   guaranteeing- to raise the sum necessary to cover  preliminary expenses   until  the  instituting of the lodge.    A committee was  also appointed to select  and purchase  reg-alia, fittings  for  hall,   etc.    W.   J.  Harber was elected  secretary until the  installation of the elected  officers, and  was further instructed to write  to  the  Grand Eodge for  information   on   certain technical points.   Any other members of the order residing  in the  district   were   invited   to  give   in   their  names as charter members at  a  meeting- to be held on the 2nd  January,   or  to the secretary in   the  interim.    It is  expected   that   arrangements   will  be  completed so as to hold the  first  regular meeting early in February.  Mr. Elkins has received instructions  to strictly enforce the observation of  of the health regulations in Greenwood  and Anaconda. It is the intention of  the authorities to have the sanitary  arrangements of towns as near perfect  as possible before spring.  WORGAN;  (p��oto$t<x$��tt,  GREENWOOD   CITY.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  0'\  XMAS ENTERTAINMENT AT MIDWAY.  The entertainment g-iven in Palmer-  ston Hall, Midway, on  Tuesday   evening- was  distinctly   in  point   of  merit  superior to any affair of  the  kind  before   attempted   in   the  district.    Evidently much pains had'been   taken   in  the arrang-ement  of the   programme,  and the evidence of   local   talent   was  truly creditable.    The  comic  element  was well maintained by  Mr.   Sansom,  whose ability to make himself supremely ridiculous is  not  to  be  questioned,  and Mr. Mclntyre.    Both Mrs.   Brown  and Miss   Haynes   sangf   charmingly,  and Mr. Rickards' recitation, "Sparta-  cus to the Gladiators," was   admirably  delivered.    "Truth" proved  to  be   an  amusing-enoug-h farce,   the  acting-  of  Miss McAuley in the,. part  of  Bridget  the   ''truthful"   maid-of-all-work   was  especially good.    If, however, it is per-  missable to criticise, it must'.-be admitted that every one of the actors  in  the  piece committed the fault  so  common  to amateurs of turning the back to the  audience.    This   is   often merely   an  effect of nervousness, but it tells  very  much against the success of the acting.,  Again, why did Mr. Trimmer when he  received" the  joyful  intelligence   that  his passion was   reciprocated   by   the  idol of his affections,.subside on a chair  and look for all the,world as if he  had  swallowed a dose  of  castor-oil ?    Miss  Ruth, by-the-way,   would   seem   altogether too cold and repellent a  damsel  to suit the requirements  of  any  lover  of a more  ardent, disposition   than   a  Mr. Trimmer.     Nevertheless, the first  effort of the Midway Dramatic Club  is  deserving of warm praise.  After Santa Claus had been introduced to the children, and refreshments  had been served, the hall was cleared  for dancing. The following is the  programme in extenso :  ;     PROGRAMME.

To the Editor, Boundary Creek Times :  Sir,���In 3'our issue of Dec. 12tli I see an article reflecting- upon me as having- done awajr  with a certain petition asking- for a road from  Greenwood Cit}- to the mouth of Fisherman  creek. No doubt 3-011 have endeavored to make  it appear that I was try'ing- to do something-  ag-ainst Greenwood and all the country which  the road asked for would benefit. The petition  was handed me b3r Neil Hard3-, who was driving- stag-e at the time, and asked if I would put  it where it could or would be sig-ned by all who  felt so disposed. I simpH' placed it on the desk  in the Grand Forks hotel, where it remained  for a da.y or two and w.as then taken to the post  office where it remained until I saw 3'our article. I then made enquio'- of Mr. Perrine, bookkeeper for Manly & AA-erill, who said it had  been there since it first came to the office ; no  one had ever asked for it, and he did not know  where or to whom it was to be sent. It seems  to me that it would be no more than rig-ht for  the one authorized to make such an attack as  that made in 3rour paper, to at least make  known the supposed loss or making- awajr of  said petition before giving- me the cheap notoriety- 3'our article has done.���Yours, etc.,  GEO.   P.   MIMMS.  [Surel3* Mr. Mimms did not peruse carefull3r  the article to which he refers, otherwise he  could not by an3r process  of logical  reasoning-  deduce therefrom that he was accused of " trying-to do something- ag-ainst Greenwood." A  letter sig-ned by T. McDonnell appeared in the  Times of Oct. 3rd, stating- that the document  when last heard of was in Mr. Mimms' possession. We have on < several occasions, in these  columns, asked Mr. Minims if he could throw  any light on the alleg-ed loss ; receiving- no reply we stated in our issue of 12th inst. that " to  all questions relative to his khowledg-e concerning- the whereabouts of the missing- document Mr. Mimms has preserved a dignified and  profound silence."   Voila tout.���Ed.]  Recent prospecting on the big , ledge  of the O.B., owned by the Boundary  Creek M. & M. Co., has shown up very  fine ore,���-a mixture of zinc blende, galena and pyrites, running well in silver and having all the appearance o_  the high grade ore from the G-.A.R.  and D. A. This ledge is only one of  three on the claim. Until this strike  was made the O.B. was considered the  least promising- of the company's properties. Messrs. Sansom & Holbrook  sold 6,000 shares of the company's  stock this week at 10c. per share, and  the probabilities aire that the price will  be doubled before spring. The company are now sinking a working- shaft  on the G.A.R. o Ore last assayed from  this claim returned $142 for  all values.

Fully ten years have gone  by  since  the discovery was first made of mineral  bearing rock in the district now known  as  Boundary   Creek,   but  it   is really  only  within   the  last  three  years���it  would hardly be stretching  a point  to  say  within   the  last   two   years���that  capital, attracted by the reports of the  extraordinary size and value of the0pre  bodies that had been found in this out-  of-the-way corner of British Cplumbia,  has been invested to any extent in developing the claims in the  new  camp.  When, hardly two years ago, Rossland,.  suddenly leaped into  prominence, and  prospects that had been   condemned as  valueless; by   profound    and    learned  mineralogists   gave    undeniable   evidence   of   becoming    dividend-paying  mines,  Boundary   Creek  began   to  be.  considered   more   seriously.      Mining  men began to admit that if the  future  of the Rossland camp  was  so  promising, it would be as well to  investigate  more fully the claims  of  Boundary to  recog-hition.    That was the beginning.  The summer of '95 was  a  busy  one  ; for the mining recorder, but this   year  the  stress  of  work   became   so  great  that it was found necessary to increase  the staff of government  officials, more  than as many claims again   as  discovered in the whole ten  years   preceding  were.recorded at Midway, from  which  time the more rapid growth and development of the camp dates.  Taking all in all, the progress that  has been made during the, year 1896 is  entirely satisfactory. Between March  and September some 800 claims were  recorded at the government office at  Midway; the territory before unexplored has been opened up ; and discovery of ledges of immense size on Pass  creek and in Kimberly camp, and the  rich finds on James creek and up the  West Fork of Kettle river,   are  among  the notable events of the year. Hearty  all the better known or more developed  prospects have either been bonded or  sold within the last twelve months to  operating companies. In Greenwood  camp the Montreal & British Columbia  P. & P. Co. purchased the Gold Drop,  after thoroughly proving the property;  the Old Ironsides . and the Knob Hill  were bought by a wealthy sj'ndicate  last summer and development work is  now in progress ; the work done on the  Monarch and on the Snowshoe while  the claims were under bond was quite  satisfactory; and the work that "has  been carried on this year on the Stem-  winder by Messrs. Farrell & Midgeon  has increased the value of the mine  ten-fold.  In Skylark camp the Skylark mine  was first bonded and then sold.  In Providence camp the Combination  claim was sold and development work,  upon an extensive scale  is  being  car  ried on. The Boundary Creek M. &. M.  Co. also acquired eight properties in  this camp and have commenced work.  In lyong I^ake camp the Vancouver  Prospecting Syndicate have obtained  control of the Denaro Grande and the  , Jewel claims, and it is stated that a  stamp, mill'will- be erected in the vicinity of these claims next spring.  In Deadwood camp the Mother Lode,  under bond to the Boundary Mines Co.,  is being thoroughly exploited, and the  Sunset has been recently bonded at a  good figure. . .. '  In White's camp-the No. 7, under  bond to the Boundary Mines Co., is a  most promising -property. Work on a  large scale is shortly to be commenced  on the St. Maurice group, and the City  of Paris and Lincoln, bonded to Mr.  Heneage, an Fnglish capitalist, are  being developed?  In Smith's camp the Non Such, Republic and Last Chance were purchased by the Republic Mining Co. ; and in  Summit camp the Keough Mining Co.  acquired seven properties'; one of which  ���-the R. Bell���-is being developed.  The population of the district has al  least doubled   itself   in   the  past  year  and the towns on Boundary creek have  made   a   marvellously  rapid   growth.  Some 300 town lots have been  sold   in  Greenwood , alone   since   March   last,  among the purchasers being Mr.   Bealey, the well  known  banker   of  Ross-  laiid, who intends to establish a branch  bank in the town next spring,   and the  Bank .of .Montreal,, business   men- in  Eastern   Canada,   on   the    coast,   etc.  From two small log cabins erected last  Christmas, there are now   nearly   fifty  fine business   buildings   alone,   nearly  every trade being  represented  in  the  town.

An occasional correspondent writes  .from Keremeos to The Times as f ol-  'lows :' ,-'V ���      .-,..".���������.'..'-,''"'    :  The prospects ahead of this section  are remarkably promising-, and that in  the near future there will be a great  mining- camp established on the Simil-  kanieen is no long-er a matter of mere  conjecture. Without a single exception  every claim upon which development  work has been done to any extent has  a satisfactory showing-.  Sharp and Fd. Williams have run a  tunnelon the Surprise lead for 50 feet,  and are down 30 feet with the shaft.  The ore is copper and iron sulphides,  assaying- as hig-h as $35 in gold, 10 oz.  in silver and 20 per cent, copper. The  ledge is three feet wide and well defined. ',.��������'..,; .'.���        ��� _��� "' , ,';..  The Flkhorn will probably one day  rival the Rosslandlye Roi as a producing mine. The ledge on this claim has  been crosscut for 80 feet, and as yet no  hanging-wall has been reached. The  ore is what may be called low-grade,  averaging $15 for gold and silver  values and 7 per cent., copper. There  is, however, a paystreak 12 feet wide  of clean copper sulphurets, that runs  $68 in gold and silver to the ton and up  to 23 per cent, copper.  Fight miles south of Camp Couteney  three claims were recently located in  what is known as Joe Hunter Camp.  The ore here appears to be very high-  grade, specimens having assayed up to  $80 in gold and.30 per cent, copper.  New locations aire being made every  week in Camp Couteney, and the other  day a character of ore new to the locality was found near the river. We were  somewhat astonished when some of  this ore, .which looks like a black sulphide or it might be an oxide of tin,  assayed $10,000 in gold to the ton.  Samples have been sent to the Government Assay Office at Victoria, and I  shairtherefore be able in my next letter to give you a more accurate and  a more scientific account of what the  ore really is. ,  Mr. Coulthart, the leading merchant  here, discovered a short time ago what  I believe to be one of the largest bodies  of low-grade sulphide ore, judging  fronl surface showings, yet discovered  in the Province. The outcroppings  have been traced clear across the claim  for the full 1,500 feet. Five locations  have been made upon this lead, the ore  from which averages about $6.50 to the  ton for gold values.  We are about to emulate the example of other mining camps and plat a  townsite. A corner lot on Main Street  will be deeded to The Times in recognition of its eminent services to the  district.  At Fairview, which is only nine  miles distant from us, quite a "boom"  is now in progress, claims being bonded and sold every day.    In fact���  To hear of a tale  Of a big- deal or sale,  No longer excites much attention :  Though "wild-cats" not Dier(?)   ' .'  Between Fairview and here  Are stocked in figures too numerous to mention^  Nevertheless, for prospectors this is  truly a magnificent field.

GREENWOOD  AND VICINITY.  Summonses have been served upon  the. men .'driving the rig which collided  with Murray's wagon last week, when  Mrs. Murray was injured. The case  will come up at Midway on Monday.  An enjoyable dance was given at the  Windsor hotel on Friday evening.  Dancing commenced at 8 o'clock and  was kept up until early morning, to  the accompaniment of a banjo and two  violins. Ah acceptable nieal was served in the dining-room at midnight.  Plans have been prepared by Mr. A.  B. Hart for a large hotel to be erected  on Government street next spring for  Mr. Robt. Wood.. The design is somewhat similar to that of the Kalemalka,  at Vernon, and in material and furniture will be thoroughly modern and  first-class. A corner has been selected  north of The Times office.  Mr. Robt. Wood has deeded a lot on  Government street to Messrs. T. Miller  and Powell, as trustees for the- local  branch of the Masonic Order, as a site  for a hall. A lodge of this order will  shortly be organized, at Greenwood.  Mr. Wood has also promised a lot for  the Oddfellows', hall, the location of  which will be decided within the next  few days.  Constable Flkins went oyer to Grand  Forks on Wednesday to arrest a man  called Iyee Warner, who is accused of  forging Mr. O. Dillier's name to a  cheque for $42, for which he obtained  the equivalent in currency from Mr. H.  McKee, of the Pioneer Ivivery Stable.  Warner is a painter by trade and was  recently employed by Mr. Dillier.  After cashing the forged cbleque, Warner borrowed a horse from the stables,  saying that he was going to Grand  Forks and would return next day. The  forgery was discovered on Tuesday.  Through the disinterested kindness  of Mr. R. Powell, who made it his  business to solicit subscriptions, a family by. the name of I^uarck residing in  Greenwood in a state of destitution,  were relieved this week from absolute  want. The father is an elderly man,  incapable of performing heavy work.  He recently took up a pre-emption on  Rock creek, but obtained a livelihood  during the autumn months by selling  milk ; this source failing from his inability to provide feed for his co-ws, he  was left without means of support for  his wife and family. With the nioney  so liberally subscribed provisions were  purchased sufficient to last some weeks.  Mr. Fzra Meeker, known as the "hop-  king" of the state of Washington, who  visited the district towards the latter  end of last month, was so pleased with  what he saw and heard of Boundary  that since his return home he has organized a company whose object will  be to develop and work mines in this  province, but more especially in this  district. The stock of the company  has been taken up and paid for in full.  Mr. J. C. Haas has been asked to accept the appointment of consulting engineer for the company here. Mr.  Meeker is a member of the "fourth estate," being one of the largest shareholders in the Tacoma "L,edger" to  the columns of which he is a constant  contributor. In the "Ledger " of the  9th inst. he gave a very appreciative  and pleasing account of his visit to  Greenwood.  The crosscut at the 130-foot level on  the No. 7 has been driven for 90 feet.  Very soft rock was struck this week  and rapid progress is being made.  mm  ^f^ _^t^ _^f^ _^f^4 ^f^. _^f^i _^t^ <^f^ _^f^4 _^f^4 _^t^. ^f^ ^f^. ^9^i ^9^ ��^f^  W.   ,xJ.

Please decide the question for us. Ans.  Your partner is correct. You are not  obliged to do your first assessment until Janllst, 1898.  Mr-.- H. Preston, erstwhile employed  as assayer on the Gold Drop by the  Montreal and British Columbia P. &  P. Co., is now at Gaylord, Montana,  arid is one of the owners of a claim adjoining-the Mayflower mine which is  shipping- 30 tons of ore a , day. Mr.  Preston writes to a friend ; at Greenwood and says that when the weather  was at its coldest a week or so ag-o,  with the thermometer at 30 below zero,  he was living-in a tent and had both  his ears and his nose frozen.  Mr. Herbert Cuthbert, western man-  , ag-er of the British-Canadian Gold  fields E- P. & I.Co., stated the other  day at a special meeting- of shareholders in Toronto; that the two Boundary  creek properties he had, purchased for  the company exhibited much the same  showing-as the best Rossland claims.  The company also own four claims on  the Colville Reservation, assays from  which went from $47 to $75 from surface rock.  'Mons. Gire, representing- the French  syndicate operating- in Central camp,  proposes to treat his ores by an electrical process. He asserts that ore can  be treated so inexpensively by this  process that he will be entirely independent of-.railroads. Mons.

Fowler, M.B., came in from  Nelson on Tuesday's stage, going on  to Camp McKinney to inspect a claim  there for the company he represents.  It is necessary to correct the statement made last week with regard to  the Silver Bow. Mr. H. A. Guess was  credited with having assayed rock  from the claim.    He did not.  Messrs. Olson and Inkstef are working on the Juanita, an extension of the  Crescent in Skylark camp. They found  some very good quartz last week, but  not in formation ; after sinking a few  feet, they started on a new shaft two  hundred feet higher up the hill.  Th^e shaft started last week on the  Iva Iveiiore, in Deadwood camp, one of  the properties of the British-Canadian ,  Gold Fields Exploration Co., is well  under way. At a depth of 12 feet a  well defined vein 12 inches wide was  discovered, and shows indications of  widening. The vein is quartz, with  copper pyrites.  On Wednesday Mr. J. C. Haas, Ip.M.  actingf for the British-Canadian Gold  Fields Company, purchased from the  lessees, Messrs. C. S. Galloway and Gi.  A. Rendell, the Ethiopia in Iyong Ivake  camp. The price asked for the claini  was $3,000 cash; The Ethiopia is considered a good property being on the  same lead as the Jewel and Denero  Grande. It is the intention-of the purchasers to proceed with the development of the claim at once.  From the records of the Mining Recorder's office at Midway it is learnt  that Mrs. Garland has bonded her  one-eighth interest,in the Jewel claini,  L<ong Iyake camp, to Mr. F. B. Smith,  acting as agent for the B. C. Prospecting Syndicate. By this bond the syndicate obtain full control of the Jewel  claim, and the}' have lately obtained  the control of the adjoining property,  the Denero Grande. The consideration  of this; transfer is $6,000; $500 down, 20  per cent, in six months and the balance  in ten months.  After sinking the shaft on the Old  Ironsides to a depth of 70 feet, Messrs.  Marshall and Rumberger have decided  not to proceed with the contract, which  was to take an 8x4 shaft down 100 feet,  unless the price originally agreed upon  is increased. Water has been pouring  into' the shaft so rapidly and the rock  has become so hard that to continue  the work under existing' circumstances  would mean a serious monetary loss to  the contractors. The matter has been  referred to Mr. H. White, local manag-er for the company.  ANACONDA NOTES.
