Vol, I,  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1897,  No, 25,  TOPICS   OF   THE   WKFK.  That the C.P.R. is anxious to secure  the Boundary Creek trade is, of course,  obvious. It is just as clear that unless  a branch line is built from Penticton  to Boundary, the bulk of the freig-ht  consigned to local storekeepers will be  shipped via Marcus, over the American  roads. The people of Boundary are  patriotic Canadians only so far as they  can afford to be ; and if they find that  American   transportation   is   cheaper  ��� than Canadian, they will invariably  choose the former, despite sentiment.  At the same time it is to be regretted  that���if the statement made by Mr.  Miller, secretary . of the Anaconda  Commercial Club, at the meeting- on  Wednesday, is correct regarding the  cost of freighting: from Okanagan Falls  ���the C.P.R. have been misled into  making   important  concessions  under  ��� the apprehension that if they did so  their road would be better patronised  than heretofore. It was distinctly  stated by Mr. Snodgrass, who now has  the contract fron the C.P.R. to carry  freight at the Company's expense from,  Penticton to Okanagan Falls, that,  provided an arrangement to this effect  . was riiade with him, freighters would  be willing to haul from Okanag-an  Falls to Boundary for l^c. per pound.  . . It now appears- that freig-hters are  not willing to do anything of the sort,  but will demand the same price former-  ty received for the haul through from  Penticton when the roads were in bad  condition.  Mr. G. B. McAuley, secretary of the  Cariboo mine at McKinney, is visiting-  Victoria. Asked confidentially the nature of his business there, he explained  as follows: "Well, I'll tell you. You  see there are so many private bills before the legislature for water power  that I thought I would get ahead of the  rest ; so I am going to apply for a few  air sites above Rossland, with the  right to supply power to the air compressors at the mines." If Mr. McAuley asked for a charter g-iving him  sole proprietorship of the air breathed  in British Columbia, with the privilege  of prosecuting every man, woman or  child interfering with his monopoly,  he would not be much less modest in  his demands, or show more cheek, than  the majority of the applicants now besieging the government for private  bills in their favor.  .The prospectors of Trail have hit  upon a capital plan to sell their claims  without calling in the assistance of a  middleman. An association has been  organized, only bona fide prospectors  owning claims in the neighborhood  being eligible for membership,  each inember being entitled by payment of a nominal fee"��to list his property with the secretary, who will  practically be retained to act as the  association's broker on salary. By  this plan two evils are avoided: the  option system which takes the property  entirely out of the prospector's hands,  often to his great disadvantage ; and  the asking of exorbitant prices by brokers, who frequently treble and quadruple the prospector's price before  making a s^-le, besides  receiving their  10 per cent, commission. There can be  no doubt but that many more investments would have been made last year  in Boundary had not brokers���not prospectors��� asked preposterous prices for  mere prospects.  Mr. Bostock, M.P., makes the excellent sug-gestion that British subjects  in Cariboo-Yale-Kootenay should show  their loyal appreciation of the fact that  the Queen's reign has been the long-est  in British history, by presenting Her  Majesty with a suitable gift in the.  .shape of a bar of g"old from each producing mine in Yale-Cariboo, enclosed  in a casket made of silver mined in  Kootenay. A casket constructed of  cut and polished specimens of quartz,  showing the native gold and silver,  and containing a congratulatory address from representatives of every  camp, might perhaps be a still more  unique manner of carrying out the  same idea.  AN   EXTRAORDINARY   AFFAIR.  Much excitement was  occasioned   in  Greenwood yesterday morning by  the  news that Mr. James  Hood  had  been  shot at and wounded in the" arm  by. a  man whose identity has not  been  discovered, near the  Recorder's  office  at  Midway, about 3 o'clock that morning.  The circumstances of the case  are  as  follows : At midnight on Thursday the  Mountain View   claim,   adjoining  the  Mother Lode  on   the .North-west  and  owned by a prospector named Williamson, "ran  out,"   and  in  consequence  several parties set out during the evening to re-stake the ground.    Mr.   Hood  and Mr. F. B. Smith formed one party,  and Mr. J. Fisher and, Mr.   W.   Lewis  another.     After re-staking  the  claim  Mr. Hood jumped on a cayuse and succeeded in reaching- Midway 20 minutes  in advance of Messrs. Fisher and Lewis, who were driven down by Mr. Corn-  stock in a sleigh.   -Mr.   Comstock,   accompanied by Mr. Fisher, had gone to  put the team in the  livery-stable,   and  Hood and Lewis were quietly  conversing a few yards distant  from  the  Recorder's office, when they were suddenly  startled  by   a   succession  of  revolver  shots fired from the corner of the building.    After about four shots had  been  fired. Hood said, "Bill, I'm shot; we'd  better clear out of this," and both men  made their way as quickly as possible  in the direction of the Boundary hotel,  Lewis supporting Hood.    All  the  witnesses to  this  strange  affair  tell  the  same story, that the  shots  were  fired  without a previous warning being given. None of party, so they empatically  state, were creating the  slightest disturbance.   Hood's wound, which is fortunately more painful than dangerous,  the bullet passing through the muscles  of the rig-ht arm below the elbow without touching the bone, was  dressed  at  5 o'clock on Friday morning.    The  revolver used was evidently of small calibre, otherwise the result  would   have  been very different.    A  searching  enquiry will  be  made  as  to  the  perpetrator of this dastardly outrage who, if  found, should be punished with the utmost rigor of the law.  The B. C. Central Mining Company.  Mr. K. F. Burt, of Spokane, one of  the principal promoters of the B. C.  Central Mining- Company, has purchased for the company the Little Buffalo  and the Peacock claims in Deadwood  camp. On the, Little Buffalo, which  adjoins the Morrison on the south, the  small amount of work done shows up a  fine body of pyhrrhotite. The Peacock  was only discovered last summer but  is in a promising locality near the  Sunset. No B. C. Central stock has  yet been placed on .the market, the  promoters laudably intending by pri- ,  vate subscription among themselves to  thoroughly develop the properties before inviting the public,to buy shares.  Work is to be started on all three  claims on or before the 1st of April; as  the weather permits. Mr. Burt, who  has had over 23.years experience of  mining in California and Idaho, believes very firmly in the future of  Boundary Creek. r  MINING NOTES.  The tunnel on the D. A. is in 35 feet  in gfood ore. ���      ������.  Work was'started^ this week on the  Rob Roy, adjoining the No. 7, in' Central camp. .  A rich lead has been struck on the  Morning Star mine at Fairview, the  ore assaying over $300.  The assessment work recently completed on the Old Guard, owned by  Alex. Wallace, in Central camp, has  shown up a larg-e body of quartz.  Slow progress is being made with  the shaft on the Cornucopia owing to  the extreme hardness of the rock, as  many as three hundred drills having  been dulled in one day. Only one  shift is now working.  A Toronto syndicate has made arrangements to acquire an interest in  the Canadian claim, Skylark camp,  owned by Mr. J. Sutherland, in consideration of performing a specified  amount of development work on the  property.  The vein in the drift on the No. 7  has widened out to three and a half  feet of clean ore. There is enoug-h ore  on the No. 7 now in sight to pay the  purchase price of the mine and the cost  of the development work that has been  done twice over.  The Alice and Emma claims at Camp  McKinney have been sold by a Victoria  company to Mr. G..-.B. McAuley, secretary of the Cariboo Mining Company,  for a valuable consideration. Mr.  Milligan, of Greenwood, was one of the  directors of the original company owning the two properties.   '  Nearly the whole of the bottom of the  shaft on the Jewel is quartz, although  of low value. Sinking is not progressing at a very rapid rate owing to the  increased depth of the shaft which renders hoisting by windlass a laborious  and slow process. Mr. Hill, the manag-er, is disappointed at not receiving  from Rossland the missing parts of  the machinery belonging to the new  steam hoist which should have arrived  this week.

The work already accomplished by  the Boundary Creek- Mining & Commercial Association, both in the inter-  ests of Green wood. and. the whole dis-  v=trict, has been of an "exceedingly useful character, and the pains-taking  and energetic manner in which the  secretary has attended to his ��� duties���  by-the-way he assuredly, has no sine- \  cure���is worthy of all praise. It is,  therefore, all the more to be deplored  that there should be any reason to fear,  almost at the outset  of  its  career, the  o  disorganization of a society through  whose influence, if rightly directed, so  much might be done of a nature beneficial to " Greenwood and the subsidiary-  camps." From its inception, however,  certain of the members have taken up-.  . on themselves���prompted, we are quite  prepared to believe, by honest and disinterested motives, but nevertheless  somewhat officiously���the task of  " running " the association on peculiar  methods of their own ; and thus many  matters have been decided and deait  with without the sanction or even  ��� knowledge of other members attending-  only the regular meetings. As a result, several have expressed their intention of withdrawing from the association and taking no active part in  its work, to show their disapproval of  the existing state of affairs.  We believe that we are correct in  stating that no systematic effort has  been made to place the association on  a proper business footing-, and that the  funds in the treasurer's hands are inadequate to meet the liabilities already  incurred. Moreover, with a recklessness certainly not creditable to the  business acumen of the so-called com-  mittee, fresh debts bearing huge proportions to the service rendered have  been contracted, before any provision  had been made to settle previous outstanding accounts. It is beside the  question to argue, as a member did in  our hearing this week, " oh, the town-  site people will have to pay it! " It is  unreasonable to expect two men alone  to shoulder the debts of the society,  and even were they willing it would be  inadvisable to have the impression  formed that the association  is merely  an annex of the townsite���or any other  business.  Under these circumstances it can  hardly be a matter for surprise that the  association is not being- accorded that  amount of respect-to which it should  be entitled and which is freely accorded the less pretentious sister organization at Anaconda. If the Boundary  Creek Mining- & Commercial Association is to be anything of a factor in  advancing the development of the district, the present " hole-in-the-corner "  manner in which things are carried on  must give place to. a more businesslike policy. When it ceases to be representative its usefulness is gone.  " Mr. J. Hunt, of Kalispel, Mont., was  in Greenwood this.week, in company  with Mr. Q. B. Nelson, looking over  the country with a view to investment.  What: struck Mr. Hunt's 'attention  more than anything else was the hospital of which, he remarked, " the people cannot be sufficiently proud; it is  the finest institution in the country."  Though'still in the prime of life, Mr.  Hunt is no tenderfoot, having come up  -from 'Frisco in 1S51.  The owners of the Cariboo mine at  Camp McKinney recently ordered an  air drill and compressor from the Dast,  but for some unaccountable reason the  outfit was consigned to Rossland, and.  now lies at/ Trail landing-, awaiting- re- ���  shipment via Penticton.  fZrORBES   M.

Until one talks with some of the pioneer prospectors on Boundary Creek, it  is difficult to realize the remarkable  progress that has.been made in the development of the district during the  past ten years. It is. hard to credit  that in 1887 there were hardly twenty-  five people to be met with between  Rock Creek and Grand Prairie ; or  that there were no roads, no stores,  and no mail service ; that sugar sold  at 30 cents a pound and flour broug-ht  as much as $5.00 a sack. With prospects of two and perhaps three railways in view, one can afford to look  back at the early days of the camp's  history with a certain amount of enjoyment, in the same sense as a man  ���whose whipping days are over is affectionately reminiscent of his years spent  at school.  One of the owners of the annexed  portion of the Greenwood townsite,  Mr. James Sutherland, tells an interesting- story of Boundary Creek in 1887.  He came to the country from Spokane,  travelling over the then apology for a  trail, swimming- rivers and dodging  trees as best he could until he reached  Grand Prairie. He had only been here  a few days when he was called upon to  act as a special constable, to arrest a  certain bad, bold man who was terrorizing the neighborhood. This gentleman went by the euphonious sobriquet  of " Dakota Charlie," though he was  sometimes known as " Blizzard Bill " ��  or "Bronco Bill." A warrant was  made out by W. A. Jones, the customs  officer and the only J.J?, in the country,  for the capture of the desperado, and a  posse of mounted men, armed to* the  teeth���a well-known pioneer farmer,  now a resident of Anaconda, believing  in Judge I^ynch's speedy and effective  methods'of justice, carried a rope���and  led by Mr. Sutherland started courageously on their errand. On the way,  however, they thought better of it���and  returned quietly to their homes:  In��1887 there were only three claims  located on Boundary. Creek,  the  Tunnel, Non Such and Republic,   and  one  on the Prairie, the  Bagle.    The  Tunnel, staked by Mr. McCarren, of Boundary Falls, was really the first location  on the creek, thoug-h Mr. W. T.   Smith  loqated  the   Non  Such  and  Republic  shortly  afterwards.    In   1890  a  small  two-stamp mill  was  erected  near  the  Boundary creek falls, by the  Spokane  & Northern Mining- Company,^he machinery being packed in on mules over  the trail.    The mill was kept running:  for about four  months,   the ore  from  the Mountain View being treated very  successfully   until   it  began   to   turn  base.    Some picked ore from  the  Non  Such was also treated, funning $150 to  the ton.    Beyond this there was  little  doing in the way of mining-.    Until the  government contracted for  a  monthly  mail service in   1890,   letters  were  entrusted to the first traveller  who  happened to be passing-.    When, however,  Mr. Sutherland, ran his stage  to  Marcus,   making   the   round   trip  once   a  month, he consented to carry letters at  the rate of 25c.  ea.h.    When  the  first  store  was  started   on   Grand   Prairie,  supplies were brought in from Hope by  pack train  via  the   Similkameen, and  prices were consequently in proportion  to the length and difficulty of the trip.  The Boundary Mines Company have  allowed the bond on the Falcon and  Rob Roy claims, in Central camp, to  lapse.  ���J. PIERCY ��fe C��,  25, 27 29, YATES STREET,  VICTORS A,    BmCm  Wholesale.

HARRY  ABBOTT.  JOHN  MILNE  BROWNING.  WILLIAM FFJRRIMAN SALSBURY.  Provisional Directors.  Vancouver, B.C.,  January 16th, 1897. 20-10 THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  ANACONDA COMMERCIAL CLUB.  At the meeting: on'; Wednesday Mr.  Hind,, chairman of the dance committee, made a very satisfactory report,  the receipts of the evening- on the occasion of the masquerade ball given  last Friday Joy the Club being' $141.70  and the expenditure $92.78, leaving- a  balance in the Club's favor of $51.88.  On motion the report was accepted,  and a vote of thanks tendered to the  members of the committee and to  Messrs. Kay and Miller for their services.  The secretary drew the attention of  the meeting- to the fact that a sufficient  sum was now in the treasurer's hands  to clear the Club of all indebtedness  and to pay the expenses connected with  the publication of the pamphlet des-  s criptive of the town and district now  in the press. The statement was received with applause.  Mr. Munro sug-g-ested and afterwards  made.a motion to the effect that, a letter be sent to the- Minister of Mines  requesting that the Provincial Mineralogist be instructed to visit and report  on the Boundary Creek district as soon  as possible.  An   interesting- discussion  followed  the reading- of a letter from  Mr. Allan  Cameron,   stating-   that   although   the  C.P.R. had made arrang-ements which  would, come into effect after the 1st of  April for freight consigned  to Boundary creek to be carried as far  as   Oka-  nag-an Falls,  Mr.   Snodgrass  and  not  the railway company would be entirely  responsible for the safe delivery of  all  g-oods after they  left  Penticton.    Mr.  Miller showed that in spite  of  the- recent concessions of the C.P.R. it would  be cheaper for merchants here to order  their supplies via Marcus, because none  of the  freig-hters  on  the  road would  consent to haul from  even  Okanagan  Falls for less than 2c. per pound.    Unless  the  C.P.R.   put  freight teams of  their own on the road and reduced  the  price of hauling, he was convinced that  most  of  the  freight  for  this  district  would be carried over American  lines.  At the request of a number of  those  who attended the masquerade ball last  Friday,   the  Club  have   consented to  give   another   dance   on   the   26th  of  March.    This, for the sake of novelty,  will be a "hard times" ball, the guests  to wear their oldest and shabbiest garments.  Mr. Iv. M. Kelly was proposed for  membership, and Mr. H. M. Ivamb was  elected an honorary member of the  Club.    �����  With the expectation of a heavy demand for building- material in the  spring, the Boundary Creek Milling- &  lyumber Co. are taking- advantag-e of  the excellent condition of the roads to  haul logs to their yards. At .-the', mill-.,  yard above Anaconda already half a  million feet of logs have been piled,  and over a hundred thousand feet at  the Greenwood yard. The Anaconda  sawmill was started up  on  Thursday.  Jack Cockerel, the discoverer of  the famous boulder of clean galena ore  which was found near the Slocan Star  mine and yielded after treatmint nearly $11,000, passed through on Monday  on his way to Keremeos where he owns  several claims.

THE   BOUNDARY   CEEEK   TIMES.  fv  CAMP   MCKINNEY   NOTES.  It is not improbable that a townsite  will be surveyed at McKinney in the  near future. The prospects of the  camp are exceedingly bright arid it is  not unreasonable to suppose that if  there is a mining- boom there this year,  as expected, townsite property will become valuable.  Mr. H. Nicholson has ordered a large  stock of general merchandise and is  enlarging and re-arranging his store,  in anticipation of a brisk trade in the  spring.  .  It is proposed to erect  a  large  first-  class hotel at McKinney.  Mr. Bash has shipped nearly 500 lbs.  of specimens from the Victoria claim  to different points. Two drifts are now  being run on the claim, both of which  are in about 250 feet. The rock is very  soft and easy to work, and progress is  being made at the rate of 27 feet each  week. In the upper drift the ledge, has  not yet been struck.  Messrs. Cope and Yonkin are working on the L,e Roi and War Eagle  claims, and a shaft is now down on  one of the claims 40 feet. The ore  steadily improves with depth and is  almost identical with that from the  two great Rossland mines of the same  name. The owners have on two coca's sions - received most advantageous  offers to bond their claims���one bond  was for $50,000���but refused in each  case.  L/ast week, while the mail was tern  transferred to the stage, the horses be  came restive and finally bolted ; one of  them has not been recovered.  Some time ago a specimen of ore,  about 6x4 inches, taken from the Cariboo mine was sent to. Spokane and was  found to contain $90 in gold. Very few  people realise the amount of development work that has been done in this  mine. From the shaft, whi :;h is down  about 200 feet, tliere are drifts at three  levels, respectively 80, 150 and 200 feet,  extending between 450 and 600 feet.  The drift at the 80-foot level was worked out, but in the others enough ore  has been stoped to keep the mill running, even with its additional ten  stamps, for two years to come. It is  worthy of note that even the famous  Cariboo has been condemned by experts, when the lead was lost at the  depth of 100 feet in the shaft. Its dis-  > appearance was found to be due to a  slip, the vein being again reached after  a drift to the east had been run for  about 30 feet.  cr  Rich Discovery of Cobalt and Nickel Ores.  A discovery of rich ore assaying $85  the values being principally in nickel  and cobalt was recently made by  Messrs. Chaplin and Otis, on the property of the Anchor Mining Company,  near San Pierre creek, or. about twelve  miles from Nelson on the Colville reservation. A tunnel has been driven  for 70 feet on the claim, and the ledg-e  has been found to be 12 feet wide.  Through Mr. R. Russell, one of the  members of Dier & Davidson, several  syndicates have been formed in the  Bast to purchase some of the claims in  Fairview, to develop which separate  companies will be incorporated.  .!.,i.J.a..'L,iW.-^;SJ!,?*Jr3a..!.��.JJ��!J��!!!^.,.��"-.!P,l."..,laa  Dissolution of Partnership,  TlTOTICE is hereby given that the partner-  X jL ship heretofore existing between Samuel  Webb and George Seymour, carrying on the  business of-hotel keepers at the Windsor hotel,  Greenwood, B.C., has this da3T been dissolved  by mutual consent, S.

GRAND   FORKS   MINING   NOTES.  [SPECIAL    CORRESPONDENCE.]  It must be acknowledg-ed that this is  a very poor time of the year to expect  much encouraging- information of mining- operations. The usual" amount of  work is g-oing on around here, chiefly  development work, and as this progresses some improvements in the  values of the ores not infrequently  0 result.  Speculation is rife as to the outcome  of the present trouble between the  owners and companies controlling* the  Seattle and Volcanic mines. ^Locators,  claimants and stockholders are seriously at loggerheads. That there is a  " nigger in the woodpile " no one will  dispute.  It is the opinion of mining- men here  that the Seattle case is far from being  settled. Hay and McCullum gained  their suit ag-ainst Clarke, and from all  evidences have secured the principal  interest in the mine���the interest in  dispute outside of that actually owned  by .Robt. Clarke. Now Manly, Averill  and Cumming are suing Clarke for  damages. How the matter will terminate is yet to be seen; the present  claimants to the property intend starting- work at once. As matters now  stand one-half of the mine, or its stock,  is owned by Hay and McCullum, while  the other owned or rather claimed by  Clarke is in. dispute.  The famous Volcanic mine is also in .  "hoc." Before work can be started,  two law suits have. to be settled ; the  one between R. A.* Brown and the orig--  inal compan-y-who advanced the money  to develop the property three years ago,  and by which financial assistance Mr.  Brown ran a crosscut tunnel 345 feet;  and the other involving J. McConnell's  claim. When these cases have been  settled, Neils L/arson has an axe to  grind, and altogether the prospects of  the property being- worked for some  time to come are very dubious indeed.  But then these two are not the only  good mines in the country and those  that are now being actually developed  are enough with their present showings  to make Grand Forks an important  centre ere long-. There are at present  seventeen claims on the North Fork  under development.  The contractors on the Bonita have  reached a distance of 30 feet on their  100-foot crosscut, and the vein at this  point is very wide. . This property is  owned by a syndicate of school-teachers  in Spokane.  Li. R. Rodg-ers, who is now engag-ed  in running- a crosscut to tap the River-  view and Lincoln claims, on the bench  to the east of town, expects to reach  ��� the point-of intersection on or about  the first of next month. The tunnel  will be 150 feet long and the cross-section of the two veins will be tapped at  a vertical depth of 180 feet. Mr. Rodg-ers was the fortunate owner of the  Alfa mine at Rossland, recently  sold for $70,000i He is also largely interested with Mr. John Ashfield in  Summit camp.  Possibly one of the best properties  now being opened up on 4he North  Fork is the Minnie, near the Wolverine,  where Dr. Averill is sinking-a 100-foot  shaft under contract. The men are  now down 25 feet and have ten feet of  sulphide ore running high in gold.  Cabins have been built at the Taco-  ma claim, one of the Boulevarde group  six miles up  the river.    Development  work  is  being prosecuted   under  .the  charg-e of the Chas. Moon and  Georg-e  Nash.  Mr. Keoug-h and his two sons are at  'present:engag-ed- in ..opening- ��� up two  claims near the R-Bell in Summit  camp, and are awaiting- the arrival of  machinery .from Salt I^ake. The. "'R-  Bell shaft is full of water, hence since  the vein was struck it has been impossible to continue work. A part of the  hoisting- and pumping g-ear has, however, arrived.  J. E}. Walker, representing- a Spokane  company, is driving a tunnel to crosscut the Garnet ledge on Garnet mountain, Pass creek. The vein has just  been reached and recent specimens  therefrom are worth seeing. Mr.  Walker says, "The claim, is not for  sale, but I propose to make a shipping-  and paying- mining- proposition out of  of it. before I give up."  A colored man, whose name I am un- ,  able to learn,   and  who  made  a  very  profitable sale at Rossland last ''fall, as'  working- on a prospect' at Pass creek,  which from all accounts is turning out  well. -'"  Among: others the following pros-.-  pects are being- developed in the North  Fork country at the present time : the  Wolverine, Viola, Indian Queen, Columbia, Strawberry, Coin, Ivee, (Napo-  lean, Bonanza and Earthquake.  Grand Forks, Feb. 23.  Mr. Neil Cochrane, the mining- representative of Messrs. McL/aren  Bros., the great lumber merchants of  Ottawa and New Westminster, was in  Greenwood this week, and intends  when the snow leaves the hills to visit  the camps in the interest of his employers. The Mclyaren Bros, are already owners of valuable mines at  Golden, Washington, and recently purchased a large block of War E}agle  stock before the sale occurred of the  mine to the Gooderhams. It is probable that Mr. James Mclvaren, one of  the brothers, will himself visit Boundary shortly.  NEW   COMPANIES.

Mr. Green completed the survey of  the Jewel and Denero Grande on Monday.  Mr. T. A. Garland has, purchased  the Snow King and Winner, in Wellington camp. The Snow King adjoins the Reno.  Mri J. C. Haas this week completed  the purchase of Jim Dale's half-interest in the Golconda group of claims in  Smith's camp.  Mr. J. Coryell is surveying- the Monarch, in Greenwood, camp, notwithstanding- the snow which is five feet  deep in the vicinity.  The British-Canadian Gold. Fields  and Exploration Co. have made final  payments on the Lewellah, Iva Lenore  and Ethiopia claims. Work is. to be,  started on all three"properties  shortly.  Mr. L. A. Bielenberg- has refused an  offer of $16,000 for a half-interest  in a ,,  claini in the Slocan called the Rio, situated in the vicinity of the Dardanelles,  Surprise and Cariboo mines.  Messrs. Haas and.McNicol intend to  start work next week on the Great  Hesper, in Smith's camp. . The present  tunnel will be continued and a 50-foot  shaft sunk on the lead, which is now;  known to be 3)4 feet wide. The ore is  galena, and iron and copper pyrites, in  a quartz g-ang-ue.  Mr. C. F. Bartholemew left on Tuesday for Spokane to order a .whim for  the Combination. The shaft is now  down 60 feet on the claim, and the.  ledge has widened to five feet. A force  of men commenced on Monday to run  a tunnel by which it is expected to  strike a second ledge at a distance , of  40 feet from the mouth, and also tap  the discovery lead at a depth of 400  feet.  Mr. O. B. Nelson, of Carson, visited  Greenwood on Saturday and was much  surprised at the growth of the town  during the past year. He cTemembered  travelling- over the rough trail through  what is now Greenwood to Copper  camp barely 18 months ago, when the  townsite was covered with brush and  fallen timber, and one by no. means  pretentious log- cabin was the only habitable building-. Mr. Nelson is very  enthusiastic anent the Colville reservation claims.  Crown Grants.���When applying for  crown grants, request that,the advertising- thereof be published in The  Boundary Creek Times,���the mining-  paper of the district.  Mr. A. Anderson, C. P. R. freig-ht  agent, has been staying in Greenwood  during the past week. The Canadian  Pacific, Mr. Anderson says, recognise  that immediate action is necessary in  order to compete successfLilly with  rival systems, hence after the 1st of  April the company will carry freight  to Okanagan Falls at the same rate  now charged to Penticton.

GREENWOOD AND VICINITY.  Mr. George Miller, of Miller Bros.,  returned to Greenwood yesterday.  Mr. Thomas, of Rossland, is preparing- to build a 20-room hotel in Cascade  City.  An Option was given on six lots in  Greenwood this week to visitors from  Calgary.  Mr. Otto Dillier went out to Spokane  last week on business connected with  his mining-properties.  Mr. Wm. Drury, well known in this  district, is slowly recovering- from a  very severe illness at Rossland.  In addition to his purchase on Copper street, Mr. Russell has secured one  of the best locations on Government  street, lot 7, block 15, immediately op  posite The Times office, where he is  preparing- the foundation for his new  hardware store.  Mr. L/ewis Hind left by yesterday's  stag-e for Rossland and Vancouver on  the Anaconda Townsite Company's  business.  Mr. W. De Vere Hunt, of Calg-ary who  is at present visiting- Greenwood, is a  brother of "Iota," the famous authoress  of "The Yellow Aster."  Mr. A. B. Hart, of Greenwood, has  the contract for erecting- a building- at  Grand Forks for Miss Zellwood, who is  opening" a millinery establishment  there.  The question regarding- a miner's  rig-ht to the timber on his claim, under  certain conditions, has been submitted  to Mr. Graham, M.P.P., to obtain a  ruling-.  On Monday Mrs. Wiseman returned  to Grand Forks, having- completely recovered from the effects of her recent  illness. Mr. MacKay Ing-rim was also  discharged this week from the hospital..  Messrs. Sansom & Holbrook have let  a contract to Mr. Coates for the erection  of a large two-storey building on their  lot next to the Pioneer hotel. Work  was started yesterday on the foundations. ...  Mr. M. Gault, representing the firm  of Davis, Marshall, McNeil & Abbott,  solicitors for the Prospecting Syndicate  of British Columbia, arrived last Saturday to investigate the titles of the  properties under bond to the syndicate.  The presence of Mr. G. B. McAuley  in Victoria gives color to the rumor  which has been in circulation for the  past two weeks, that the owners of the  Cariboo were negotiating for the sale  of their properties at Camp McKinney  to a syndicate of capitalists.  During the past few weeks there  have been a number of cases of grippe  reported in the district. The mining  recorder, Mr. McMynn, has had a  .somewhat severe attack of the malady,  necessitating Mr. IDlkins undertaking  the duties of the office for the past few  days.  A largely signed petition has been  forwarded to the Minister of Education  asking that Greenwood be made a  school district.' Twenty-six children  are now attending the school here, and  it is very certain that this number will  be greatly increased in the next few  months.  Several valuable dogs have recently  been poisoned in the neighborhood, a  setter owned by Mr. L/awder, for which  he at one time refused an offer of $120,  being destroyed in this manner. It is  to be hoped that if this poisoning was  intentional, the perpetrators of the outrage will be severely dealt with.  Two weeks ago The Times commenced to advertise in The Province  and The Mining Record. Already returns are coming in,���from Nanaimo,  Brandon, Wiarton (Ont.), Campbell  ���'(Cal.), Fort Steele. Springhill Mines  (N.S.), and Philadelphia,���showing the  interest taken in Boundary Creek in  the extreme east, west and south.  After an exciting race Messrs. Fisher and L/ewis succeeded in obtaining a  record of the St. L/awrence, formerly  the Mountain View, adjoining the  Mother L/ode. It is understood that  Messrs. Hood arid Smith are to receive  a half-interest in the claim. Mr.  Fisher's party drove from Greenwood  to Midway in thirty-five minutes.  While the proceedings are going  rapidly forward for the incorporation  of the towns of Nelson, Rossland and  Grand Forks, Greenwood for some .unfathomable reason seems to have been  left out in the cold. Notice of Application for the incorporation of Greenwood  was duly published both in The Times  arid in the B. C. Gazette ; it is, therefore   strange  that  the  matter  should  now have been allowed to drop without  anything being said about it.  Some thirty men went out on Thursday night to re-stake the vacated  ground near the Mother L/ode. , It is  even stated that in the excitement the  Mother L/ode mine itself was re-staked  several times over.  The officers of the Brandon & Golden  Crown Mining Co. are: Hon. T. M.  Daly, president; A. Kelly, vice-president ; W. L/. Orde, secretary-treasurer ;  W. A. Fuller, W. A. Macdonald, Q:C,  Hon. J. N. Kirchhoffer, Fred. Nation,  W. L/. L/indsay and William Johnston,  of Brandon, Man., and W. J. Porter  and Geo. H. Collins, of Greenwood.  Development work on the claims owned  by the company will be proceeded with  at once, the directors having been authorised to issue a limited amount of  treasury stock at 10 cents a share.
