S����*i*W��lii!��l!&^^  �������"'��Biiiwi��^^ A Weekly Paper published in the interests ot the Boundary Creek Mining District.  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1897.  No. 18,  THE   WINDSOR   HOTEL.  The Windsor Hotel, the building of which was commenced  last March and completed in May, is admitted to be the  most home-like of the Boundary Creek hostelries. Mr. Geo.  Seymour, one of the proprietors, was his own architect and  hauled all the logs and lumber for the house. When he and  his partner, Mr. Sam Webb, arrived in the camp they had  by no means an easy time of it. In the first place nearly  every carpenter in town was engaged, consequently the  building of the hotel was a slow process; then there was  very little lumber to be had, either for love, jawbone or  money, and it was found necessary to purchase a team of  horses and a wagon before the furniture could  be  brought  ni_nnn't mi~i  ney terminating, in fact, three miles below that place. Mr.  Seymour asked the purser several times if their destination  was Robson and receiving affirmative replies was quite satisfied to remain on the vessel when the other passengers got  off at this point below Robson. Presently, however, he  discovered that the steamer was returning to Trail, and  having persuaded the captain to put him on shore, got some  hasty directions of the road to Robson and started at a brisk  pace to walk the distance which, he had been told, was only  three miles. In due course he came to a spot where the trail  forked and naturally took the wrong turning, which led him  to the track of the Nelson railroad. He continued to tramp  on until dusk, when he vainly endeavoured to kindle a fire  with two pocket handkerchiefs and ' a  C.P.R.   folder.    But  THE    WINDSOR    MOTEL,    GREENWOOD,    B.C.  in from Marcus ; and to put a climax on their misfortunes  a load of glass and china went over a bluff on the road, and  the fragments that remained weren't worth much. At  length the building was completed and opened on May 1st,  though the license was not obtained until July 1st. Since,  then the proprietors have done a very profitable business,  the Windsor hotel being a very popular institution in  Greenwood and enjoying an increasing connection amongst  the commercial travellers w^o regularly visit the city.  Mr. Seymour was widely known throughout the Northwest and for two years catered for the mess of Mounted  Police at Lethbridge. His arrival at Greenwood was the  result of accident. He was really bound for Revelstoke and  upon reaching Trail he took the steamer for Robson. Nov/  at that time the boat did not go as far as Robson, the jour-  Mr. Seymour was perfectly prepared to "move on" upon  perceiving two formidable cougars watching his movements  with more than friendly interest and licking- their chops  at the prospect of a dainty meal off his best Sunday-go-to-  meeting clothes. Seymour decided to warm himself with a  run. The cougars also thought a run would be enjoyable,  and followed. At length, not being in a sociable frame of  mind, the unhappy hero of these adventures fired a shot at  his escort from a small calibre revolver and fortunately they  took the hint. Presently to his great relief he heard the  distant sound of an approaching train. Keeping well in the  glare of the front light, as the engine drew near he fired a  shot. The train was stopped and tired, cold and hungry the  miserable man was taken on board. Here before reaching  Nelson a garrulous fellow-passenger told him about  Land's ranch, now the town of Anaconda, and the looked-  for good times on Boundary Creek. Hence, instead of going  to Revelstoke Mr. Seyniour found his way to Greenwood,  and the Windsor Hotel is the result.  mm^WB^SmmM^mmmWSSmmkVmma M&smomxsmmm^immi!mmmmsmmmmmm!ma.mmamam  moSjniaJMiim^uvs/K^svAAiJuiSMMJstiaf^si  i *. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  GREENWOOD  AND VICINITY.  School opened for the faster term  on Monday.  Mr. A. K-Stuart purchased two lots  on Copper street this week. "Very few  lots on this street are now offered for  sale.  The annual meeting of the Boundary  Creek M. & M. Co. is advertised for  Thursday, the 21st hist., at their office  in this city.  The fall of snow this season is very  much heavier than usual. Already in  Greenwood camp the snow is five feet  deep on the level.  The Grand Forks Brewery received  a license to manufacture and sell beer  and porter last week, and the machinery has been set in motion.  A brewery is a much nee led institution at Greenwood. That the town  ���would prove a good point for a business  of this kind is beyond peradventure.  Mr. "Johnnie" Bell,, of Boundary  Falls, celebrated his birthday on Monday, entertaining a number of his  bachelor friends with a dinner. A very  pleasant evening was spent.  Mr. EUkins, provincial constable, has  purchased three lots on L/ong L/ake  street near the school, and contemplates building a large house thereon  so soon as material is procurable.  Mr. Holbrook, manager of. the Boundary Creek M. & M. Co., generously  presented little Willie Huff with a hundred shares of the company's stock as  a birthday gift on the first of the year.  Sunday's stage from Penticton was-  delayed by an accident which occurred  near Rock creek. L\escending a steep  , hill one. of the horses fell and broke a  leg. It was found necessary to shcot  the animal.  A charter will be applied for at the  approaching session of the legislature,  by local capitalists, to construct a railroad from Christina lake to Penticton,  via Pass creek and the west fork of  Kettle river.  Until the late Mr. Taylor's relatives  in England signify their wishes with  regard to the disposal of the moiety of  the partnership interest owned by him  in the Greenwood Drug Store, Dr.  Jakes has consented to take charge of  the dispensing department.  The law in British Columbia with  regard to vehicles passing one another  on hig-hways if known is lightly regarded in this district. The "rule of  the road" is, according to the act of  1892, the same as it is in England,  "turn to the left" in contradistinction  to the law in force in pastern Canada  and in the States of "turn to the right,"  John W. Proctor, familiarly known  from Bismarck to Spokane as "Death  on the Trail," was killed by falling  over a steep bluff -while prospecting  near Mineral Point, Idaho, on New  Year's day. Proctor rendered valuable  service to the U.S. government in the  early days as a scout in many campaigns against Indians, but for the  past nine years has resided in Spokane.  Attired in a buckskin suit, with a  broad-brim white hat, and other accoutrements of a typical frontiersman, and  standing 6)4 feet in his stocking-s, his  was a figure once seen never forgotten.  During his prospecting trips through  the Colville reservation he was a frequent visitor in Midway, and there are  not a few on Boundary creek who will  mourn his death as that of a friend.  25, 27 29, YATES STREET,  VIGTORI A,    B.G.

O!  i  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES'.  MINERS' LICENSES.  In the British Columbia Gazette of  the 24th ult., notice is g-iven of a regulation passed by the LVieutenant-Governor in Council as follows :  "Any person or joint stock company,  being- the holder of any  property, who  may apply for relief  ag-ainst  the  forfeiture of his  or  its  interest   in  such  property by reason of. his or  its  omission to obtain a new free  miner's  certificate on or before the day  following  the expiration of the lapsed  certificate  shall, upon the production of an affidavit setting- forth the  circumstances  of  such.omission, and full  particulars  of  the property affected, tog-ether with the  declaration of the Gold  Commissioner  or Mining- Recorder for the division  or  divisions.in which such property is situated to the effect that no  records  adverse to the applicant's interests therein have been made by him  during-  the  time in which the  said  applicant  was  not in possession of a free miner's certificate in g-ood standing-, and, further  upon the payment  to  the  Minister  of  Mines of a fee of  five  dollars,   be  entitled to the relief soug-ht for." '  This reg-ulation is in every sense of  the word commendable. Under its  provisions the possibility of serious  loss to the prospector who throug-h unavoidable circumstances finds himself  unable to renew his certificate is less to  be apprehended, whereas in case of carelessness, forg-etfulness of dates for instance, the additional fee of five dollars  is a sufficiently heavy punishment.  ***??

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  ntxxtg  HAROLD M.  LAMS - ��� EDITOR  W.    xJ.    HARBER ��� ��� ��� MANAGER  Subscription, S2.00 per Year, in Advance.   *  SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1S97.  THE OUTL.OOK FOR 1897.  The year 1897 has opened  most  aus-  .piciously for Boundary Creek with several important sales of mining propertj'-  and   with   a  notable  increase  in   the  number of prospects undergoing development.    Instead of the somewhat dull  and depressed times that even the most  sanguine had not unreasonably anticipated  for  the  months  preceding-   the  spring, it may truthfully be  said  that  tradespeople and  business  firms  generally have so far had little  cause - for  discontent.   Whether the speedy development that characterised thesing-ular  growth of Rossland will take  place  in  Boundary this year  is  a question  depending very considerably, first,  upon  the consideration of  Mr.   Heinze,   and  secondly upon the  deliberations of the  Provincial Government at the  session  commencing on the  Sth  of  February.  If Mr. Heinze hastens the construction  of the  Columbia  &  Western   towards  this district���and he certainly has  nothing to g-ain   by   delay���investors   in  mining   property, . satisfied   that   the  transportation problem need no longer  trouble them, will not hesitate  to sink  money in so promising- a field as Boundary  Creek undoubtedly   is.    Failing-  Mr. Heinze,  in  the  same  way  everything rests on the action   taken by the  government with regard  to  granting  charters to the several companies seeking-, permission, to  construct roads  in  this district. - It  is  to. be hoped that a  searching-  enquiry   be  made  into  the  financial ability  of   the   applicants  to  carry   out   within   a. reasonable  time  what they propose to  do ; and  failure  on the part of the promoters  of  these  projects to  satisfy   a  commission  appointed for the purpose, that they have  the means at command to immediately  carry out their plans, should mean the  refusal of the respective  charters.    In  this event we are strongly  in  favor pf  the  government   itself   assuming-  the  responsibility.of building   and  operating a railroad direct from the Coast to  Kootenay.    Speaking  without definite  knowledge, it is highly  probable   that  the V. V%.& B. R. & N. Co. will be prepared to^fehow incontestable proof s, not  only of their ability to build their road  but of "their determination to commence  operations with as little delay  as  possible, allowing for the  consumption of  time owing- to the necessarily extensive  preliminary   arrangements   that   will  have to be made.  The sister associations of Greenwood  and Anaconda promise to be important  factors   in  drawing-  attention   on   the  " outside"   to   the  great  mineral  resources and the future  industrial importance of Boundary.    Already  good  work has been accomplished  by  both  organizations in the   interests  of  the  district as a whole.    We  take  especial  and, we think, a  pardonable  pride  in  laying stress upon this point, owing to  the fact that The Times  was the first  to suggest the advisability and wisdom  of organizing a society for the  protection   and   advancement  of    the   local  mining and commercial   interests.    In  our issue of Oct. 24th we  said, " much  'may  be  done  to  advertise Boundary  Creek on the  outside.    The  organization of an association or society for the  purpose of advancing-  the  interests of  the district could not but  be  attended  with important and beneficial results."  The   org-anization  of   the    Boundary  Creek M. & C. Association  is  directly  traceable to our sug-gestion.  The Reservation M. & M. Co.  Extensive development work is being  done on the Washing-ton, one of the  properties owned by the Reservation  M. & M. Co., immediately south of  White's camp. From the tunnel a drift  has been run each way for 177 feet,.  nearly the whole distance being  through solid ore. A shaft, which is  now down 70 feet, is being sunk with  the intention of cross-cutting the lead  at the depth of ICO feet. The company  has already sold sufficient treasury  stock to pay all expenses connected  with developing their properties on a  scale as at present for a year to come.  Despite the enormous size of the ore-  body on the Washing-ton now shown  up the product is what may be called  hig-h-grade.  The committee of the Boundary  Creek, M. & C. Association met on  Thursday evening and several subjects  of importance, including, the renting  of a room to be used as a public reading room, the organization of a society  to give annual exhibitions of ore specimens, and the question of fire protection for the town, were discussed preparatory to presenting them for consideration at the general meeting on  Friday night.  f���'ORBES   M.

Gire has started tunneling- on  both the'Jack of Spades and on the St.  Maurice in White's camp.  Jack Farrell is working- on the Buttercup in Wellington camp. The shaft  on the quartz lead which is 2 feet wide  is down 30 feet.  Charley Harrington returned this  week from Trail, and starts work in a  few days on claims owned by him in  Deadwood camp.  The last issue of the Grand Porks  Miner reports the sale of the Monarch  in Greenwood camp. No sale has as  yet been made of this claim.  The working shaft on the R. Bell in  Summit camp is now down about 70  feet. At the depth of 100 feet it is proposed to drift so as to tap the lead.  The Boundary Mines Company have  been granted an extension of time of  two months on the IsTo. 7 bond. The  -date upon which the final payment  should have been' made according to  the original agreement was the first of  January.  Mr. Leslie Hill, representing the  Vancouver Prospecting Syndicate, arrived in Greenwood on Thursday, and  will remain for some time superintending development work about to. be  commenced en. the claims bonded to  his company in I/Ong I^ake camp.  The assessment was completed last  week on the Ophir and the Oro in Wel-  ling-ton camp, owned by "Joe" Taylor  and his partners. Both claims are  looking well. Assays of rock taken  from the bottom of the 40-foot shaft on  o  the Ophir returned $40 in gold and 125  oz. in silver. The ore is rose quartz  with galena. On the Oro a tunnel has  been run for about 40 feet on the lead,  and a shaft is down between 25 and 30  feet.    Assays go up to $50.  Mr. C. Frank returned on Tuesday  from attending a meeting of directors  of the Rambler Mining. Company at  Spokane. The board was well satisfied  with Mr. Frank's report of the result  so far shown by development work on  the Rambler claim on Pass creek, and  it was decided to continue employing  four men sinking the shaft on the  property. The shaft is now down 23  feet and Mr. Frank thinks that they  are just through the capping and are  coming into the solid ore. The rock  is gradually becoming more mineralized. No assays have recently been  made.

The  Mother lode  was bonded on the 17th of  June last to  Col. John Weir and his associates  for  three months, the  consideration being  $16,000, of which   10 per cent, was paid  down.    Towards the end of September  last the  Company,   taking-   advantage  of the capital tunnel site, on the claim,  put two shifts of men to work starting  a  tunnel  from  the  lime  contact  and  running- into the mountain in the direction   of   the   ledge.      After    passing  throug-h about 40 feet of lime, ore was  struck, and from  that time   no  barren  rock has been encountered ; in fact the  ore  has  steadily   improved  in  grade.  Within the last three or four  days  especially a  marked  chang-e  has  taken  place, the ore becoming more silicious  and carrying a much  hig-her  percentage of g-old and copper.   The manager,  Mr. Keffer, has certainly every reason  to feel eminently   satisfied with the result of the work that has been  carried  on under his direction, and he does not  hesitate to thus express himself.    The  tunnel has now been driven in for   138  feet, 96 feet of which is  through  solid  ore, and it is not yet known  when  the  porphyry wall will be reached,   the  estimated distance,   however,   being  between 30, and 40  feet.     Of  course,   as  Mr.   Keffer  remarks,   as  the  greatest  depth they are working is only 100 feet  from the surface, this is not enough to  prove the value of a copper mine,   the  fact   being-,   according-   to    geological  science     and     practical     experience,  acknowledged that in  copper  mining  particularly the ore becomes more valuable  with  depth.     Nevertheless  the  indications   are   sufficiently   favorable  to   warrant  the  assumption   that  the  Mother Iyode will   one  day   take  rank  among  the  greatest copper-gold producing, properties on the continent.  The news that the bigledg-e had been  struck on the No. 7 has proved incor-  rectr "What gave rise to the supposition1 was the fact that seeming-ly a body  of ore was struck about 128 feet from  the commencement of the crosscut, but  after working a few days the men went  through this without finding- walls on  either side. Mr. Keffer states that in  his opinion what was supposed to be  the big ledg-e was simply " a big boulder of quartz embedded in the rock,"  and he has consequently g-iven orders  to continue the crosscut.  The vein on the G.A.R. has increased from 6 inches on the surface to 2  feet at a depth of 25 feet in the shaft.  The ore is full of specks of ruby and  native silver. It has been decided to  engage an additional force of eig"ht  men to work on the company's claims.  The Boundary Creek M. & M. Co. is  selling stock rapidly,, and it is hig-h-  ly probable that shares will be up to  25c. before the end of the year. Messrs.  J. M. Buxton & Co. of Vancouver have  accepted the agency for the coast.  On Wednesday the Iyewellah shaft  was down 35 feet. There is a marked  improvement in the appearance of the  ore. This claim is bonded to the British-Canadian Gold Fields Co. for 60  days, the time expiring on the 26th of  this month.  t'p ESvR��55SIjSvKE5��m5v^ s'p   DEALERS   IN    '  Hardware, Paints and Oils, Sash and Doors.  *Y4     &     >&  tip    ~/'p     ->'p  Agents for Chatham Wagons and Sleighs,--Best in America.

The road to the Denero Grande, in  kong L,ake camp, was completed this  week. A g*ang- of six men and two  teams of horses were employed on the  work.  The big- ledg"e on the No 7 was struck  last week, a crosscut having- been run  for ISO feet from the main shaft at the  130 foot level. The ore now met with  is heavily impregnated with iron pyrites.  The dispute regarding- the ownership  of the, Washing-ton and L/one Star  properties near White's camp on the  reservation has been amicably settled,  Mr. Morrison, the' claimant, receiving  ten per cent, of the capital stock of the  company.  Mr. Henneag-e, who holds the bond  on the City of Paris and the Lincoln  in White's camp, has gone to Dng-land  for the purpose of organizing- a company to purchase and develop the  claims; meanwhile work has been stopped upon both properties.  It has been decided to discontinue  work .on the. Old Ironsides until the  spring, the contractors being- unable to  contend with the water which pours'  very rapidly into the shaft. At the  depth how reached, about 75 feet, the  showing- is quite satisfactory.  The Comstock Mining- Company has  been restrained by the U. S. circuit  court at Spokane, from removing- or  selling any ore from the Morning- Star  mine in the Colville reservation, until  the suit recently entered by the L,a  Fleur Mining Company against the  Comstock Mining- Company for $20,000  damages and for possession and title  to the Morning- Star is heard.  The Spokane  Chronicle   apropos  of  mining" development in British Columbia   speaks    thus    encouragingly    of  Boundary Creek : Althoug-h the Boundary country still  lacks  transportation  facilities the past year has been one of  exceptional   prosperity  and  progress.  Three  thriving-  and  rapidly  growing  towns   have   sprung-    into    existence,  namely Grand Forks,   Greenwood  and  Anaconda, and they are surrounded by  mines that only require  a  railroad   to  insure their owners handsome dividends  in   the  future.    For  a district that is  from forty to sixty-five  miles  from   a  railroad, Boundary has shown   a  more  wonderful  progress  than  almost  any  other district in the northwest.  The occupants of lots at the townsite  of Nelson on the reservation, are sinking-shafts in their backyards in order  to "get ahead" of the Indian Ag-ent,  who has threatened them with eviction  on the grounds that the reservation is  only  open  to  prospectors  or   miners.  Some  of  these  placer  actually yielded gfold.  '<~  laims"   have  The people of Grand Prairie are very  anxious to know whether or not the  g-overnment intend to build a bridg-e  across the Kettle river at Johnson's  Ferry.

The reg-ular meeting of the Club was  held as usual on Wednesday at 7:30 p.  m. The chairman of the New Year's  eve dance committee reported that the  Club was benefited to the extent of $43  after paying- the musicians for their  services during- the evening". He  thought everyone who had taken part  in the dance had thoroughly enjoyed  themselves and had appreciated the  manner in which it was conducted. A  : vote of thanks was tendered to Messrs.  Kay, Miller and Wilbur for their efficient aid towards making the affair a  success.  Relative to Mr. Sawder's offer to  allow the Club the use of his  pool  table  until May next, it was decided on   mo-  tion of Mr. Hind that while  the   meeting-    fully    appreciated  the   kindness  of  Mr. L,awder's  motives they found  themselves unable to  accept  the offer.  A committee of ^Messrs. Hind, Hardy  and Miller  was   appointed  to  draft  a  petition to be addressed to the  provin-,  cial government asking-, that  charters  be granted to  all  the  applicant  com-:  panies proposing to construct railroads  through the district, but  at  the  same  time urging that none of the projected  lines be subsidised or  the   interest  on  their bonds guaranteed by the govern-  '. ment.  At the request of the president, the  secretary read an article from the  Toronto "Telegram" exposing the modus operandi of wild-cat company promoters and their accomplices. After,  the matter had been discussed at some  leng-th, the secretary was instructed to  write to the publishers of the "Telegram" strong-ly commending the publication of the article in question, and  further stating- that if intending- investors before purchasing- shares of  any company claiming to own mining  property in Boundary send the prospectuses to the Anaconda Commercial  Club, the organization will be happy  to reply g-iving- descriptions of the  claims or mines mentioned therein to  the best of its ability.  The Club, according- to a previous  arrangement, decided to g-ive a social  dance on Friday next, the 15th inst.
