Vol. It  GREENWOOD CITY, B.C., SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1897.  44  No, 18,  THE   MINES   OF   BOUNDARY   CREEK.  The Jewel arid Denero Grande in Long Lake Camp---The Road Thereto  and the  Prospecting Syndicate of British Columbia's  Work-.���A Well-equipped  Property.  RMED with' an order courteously supplied by  Mr. L/eslie Hill, CIO., the representative in  ^Boundary Creek of the Prospecting- Syndicate of British Columbia, our representative  was enabled on Wednesday to visit and go  ^. ��� through the (for a prospect) extensive workings  ^ic that have been carried on at the Jewel and Denero Grande claims by the syndicate since January last, when the properties were acquired.  by them on a bond from the original locators, Messrs.  Shonquest and McArthur, through the agency of Messrs.  Hodgson & Barrett, of Greenwood. The deal, particularly  in its aspects affecting the development of the district generally, was decidedly an important one, and though of  course the members of the syndicate neither pretend nor  wish to pose as philanthropists, by the character of their  operations they have largely contributed towards the opening up of the camp, and by the liberal expenditure of money  , evinced an enterprise arid a. confidence in the future remunerative value of their speculations that does them infinite  credit. Take for instance the construction of- the sleigh  road last winter from Greenwood to T^ong Iyake arid the  syndicate's subsequent offer to supplement the government  appropriation for the improvement of this somewhat rough  thoroughfare. It is to the syndicate's interests, of course,  that a passable road should be built to their properties.;' but  at the same time every prospector, every owner of a claim  in I/ongTyake camp or the camps en route, also reaps the  benefit without being asked to contribute towards the expense. Moreover, it may be safely presumed that but for  the development work being prosecuted by the. syndicate  Mr. Cuppage,. the road inspector, would have thought twice  before expending part of the limited sum appropriated for  road improvements in his large district, to such a purpose  as making a wagon road to L/ong lake. Now, however, under his direction a gang of men are at work on this road,  with the result that in about a fortnight's time it will be  possible to take supplies up to Iyong , lake in a wagon, instead of by the slow and costly method of packing.  But about the mine itself, where our correspondent arrived  by a fortunate coincidence���as it turned out���just as the'  clock hands pointed to the hour of noon, there is much to  say : Having done full justice to a'meal, which in point of  substantiality and excellence in preparation left little to be  desired afterwards���for one must enjoy a dinner at a mine  cook-house after a long,ride to learn the fundamental principles of gastronomy���the writer donned overalls and  jumper and, supplied with a tallow candle, followed Mr.  Barker, that most obliging of foremen, down the bucket-  way of the well-timbered double compartment shaft from  the engine-house. Here on one side the planking has been  removed for the benefit of experts who recently visited the  mine, and for perhaps the first 35 or 40 feet there is as fine  a showing of highly mineralized quartz as one could wish  to see, the assays therefrom averaging$100 in gold, although  from one spot the returns were very much higher, running  over $500 in gold and silver. But at this depth (40 feet) a  " horse "was encountered, and though quartz ag-ain soon  came in it was for nearly 60 feet almost valueless, when  rock was found at 110 feet to run $68 in gold and 26 ounces  in silver. At the bottom of the incline shaft���the lead  pitches about 40 degrees east���at a depth of 130 feet, a sump  was sunk to hold the water which accumulates in the workings. This sump is emptied daily, the water being hauled  up in a barrel by the steam hoist, the operation usually  occupying about \]/z hours ; as many as 87 barrels .have  been hauled up this way in an hour. By-the-way, the syndicate purchased last winter, besides the hoist, a steam  pump, but this latter was detained at Marcus for such an,  unconscionable time that when it at length' turned up at  Greenwood the snow had disappeared, and hence it was  found impossible to remove it to the mine. When the new  road is completed the pump will be taken up and duly installed,, and the intention then is to so arrange that by a  self-dumping bucket for the rock the engineer will  be   able  to control the work of pumping the water from the shaft  and hoisting the rock without the assistance of another man  on top, as at present is obligatory.  Of the drifts at the 150-foot depth, the north one has been  run a distance of 80 feet, and the ���south 175 feet. In the  north drift there is a good showing of quartz with galena,  but in the south workings the ledge has twice broken off,  only however to be ag-ain met with further on. These  breaks occurred at distances respectively of 75 and 120 feet  from the bottom of the shaft. The men are now working  under the Denero Grande ground, the shaft having been  started some 80 feet on the Jewel side from the boundary of  the two properties ; thus the management wisely plan to  test the merits of the two properties simultaneously.  But what Mr. ��Hill  and his foreman particularly rather  pride themselves on is the excellent ventilation of the mine.  On- Wednesday,  for instance, '.'.fourteen shots werefired at  noon in the south drift, and by half past one the men were  again starting to drill and the atmosphere below ground was  almost as pure as above.    In mining proper ventilation plays  an important part, both from humanitarian and economic  points  of view,  and Mr. Hill's arrangement for supplying  fresh air to the works is  as effective as it is  ingenious and  simple.    The circulation of air is maintained by the careful  calking of all cracks in the planking of the double compartment shaft,, the current being further increased by a high  chimney placed at the'.mouth' through which the exhaust  steam  from  the  engine  is  conveyed.    The draft thereby  caused is so great that in ascending the ladderway a lighted  candle is with difficulty kept from being extinguished.    Before leaving the  subject one may  perhaps be allowed  to  congratulate Mr. Hill upon securing the services of so capable and experienced a for enian  as Barker,  a man who by  hereditary  instinct (he   conies  of,an  old  Cornish race of  miners,) and practical.knowledg-e acquired by many years  spent in mining,  eminently fits him for his present duties.  This statement is fully borne out by the many useful time-  saving contrivances which he has devised about the Jewel,  notably  the arrangement of the water-tank for supplying  the engine, the changing of the track whereby the rock is so  dumped as to make a level roadbed round the shaft-house  and buildings.    The foreman is a careful and conscientious  accountant,   and he keeps accurate  account of the actual  work  dairy performed by each man in the syndicate's employ.    The syndicate have now seventeen men on their payroll.    Two shifts are kept at work on the Jewel, each man,  even' the shovelers. receiving-$3.50 per diem;  but the foreman will only engage  a man   permanently   when he   has  ascertained that his capabilities are quite, up to the highest  standard, consequently what work  is done   at  the mine is  done well.  To  sum up : the   probability   of   the  Jewel   and   Denero  ere long dividend paying- mines is very  The evidence so far goes to show, however, that  breaks in the vein may be often expected, and that the  values will be derived from rich streaks, or pockets. This  phenomenon is nevertheless of frequent occurrence in many  profitabl37 worked mines, and is in fact characteristic of pay  properties in many of the richest mining districts in the  northwest. The Jewel-Denero Grande lead is about five  feet wide, the ore being a white, rich golden quartz, carrying tellurides, galena, and some sulphides of copper and  iron. We have good authority for stating that the syndicate will erect during this year, if all things go well, a  stamp-mill in I^ong L,ake camp, in which case we ma)r confidently expect to see them receive more than satisfactory  returns for the commendable zeal with which they have exploited the two properties.

A large band of cattle was this week  driven over the Dewdney trail for the  Rossland market.  Ten days of almost continuous rain  is a record-breaker for Greenwood and  upsets the careful calculations of the  local weather prophets. F}ven the oldest inhabitant is forced to confess that  nothing- in the previous days equalled  the humidity of the past week. In past  yeans the clerk of the weather has been  pleased to furnish July's without water.  A meeting" of those interested in the  establishment of the IQpiscopal church  at Midway was held last week, Rev. H.  Irvin presiding-. A committee consisting- of Messrs. Rickard, J. R. Brown,  and A. K. Stuart was appointed, and  it was 'decided to appeal to friends in  England for funds to .ensure the erection of a church. Captain. Adams, of  the Townsite company, offered three  lots for-building-purposes.  J. W. McFarland, of Vancouver, one  of the directors of the Prospecting- &jxi-  dicate of British Columbia, spent several days in Greenwood this week. In  company with Mr. Iyeslie Hill, C. E}.,  he visited the Jewel mine, owned by  the company, and expressed himself as  being- well satisfied with the work  being- carried on there. Mr. McFarland left early in the week for Kootenay.  M.J. Treav}'", a prominent railway  man of Omaha, arrived in Greenwood  on Sunday and left early in the week  for Camp McKinney, where he owns  the Iyemon claim. Mr. Treavy intends  putting- men to work on the I^emon at  once and securing- a crown grant for  the same. The claim is to be turned  ���over to a compaiw of Nebraska capitalists which IN'Ir. Treav}^ succeeded in  org-aniiving-. It will be immedia.tely incorporated under the B. C. Companies'  Act. ��� It is the intention of the company  to acquire other properties in B. C.  Mr. Harris, a nephew of J. M. Harris cf the L-e Roi   mine,    has   a force  at  work on   the    G-rej'hound   mine in  Deadwood   camp.    The Greyhound   is  showing- up. well under development, a  strong-  lead of higii grade ore having-  been  uncovered.     Mr.   Harris, of the  Ive Roi, who owns the Greyhound and  ���other properties in the district, intends  carrying-  out   some development work  ���oil'all his claims.

Adams, of the Midway  Townsite company, has called a meeting', of the residents of Midway this  evening- for the purpose of discussing-  improvements with them. .  Mr. Irwin, who was the Presbyterian  missionary at Greenwood for some  time, intends leaving- for the east in a  few weeks. He has spent the summer  prospecting-, and intends reaching- the  railway by riding- over the, Hope mountains., :''-;."  Ivouis V. Cuppag-e, superintendent of  roads arid bridg-es, has made'arrang-e-  ments to construct a wag-on road along- <  the North Fork from Iyime creek to  Pass creek, a distance of about four  miles. The g-overnment appropriation  for this work is $5500, and this is to be  increased by aid from property owners  in that vicinity.,:  The transferring- of records for the  newly created mining- district from the  Midway to theftGrand Forks office1 will  entail a vast amount of work. Mr.  Almond, the newly appointed recorder,  and five or six clerks have been en-  g-ag-ed in the work this week. It is expected that the office at Grand Forks  will be opened about Aug-ust 1.  A. LI. Lawder has been appointed a  provincial police officer for Boimdaiw  Creek, with headquarters at Greenwood. In all probability a , provincial  officer will be stationed at Greenwood  after the town is incorporated, as  Superintendent Hussey realizes the  importance of having- the surrounding-  mining- camps under police supervision.  Mr. L^ewis Hind of Anaconda having- been appointed a justice of the  peace by the lieutenant-g-overnor in the  council, was sworn into his new office  by Mr. J. Hahiill, < J.P., on Wednes-  6.3.J.... Mr. Hind had his first case at  Anaconda on Wednesda}'. The charg-e  was one of common assault, the plaintiff being- H. R. Henning- and the defendant O. D. Sandford. Henning-was  badly cut and bruised about the face  from a ring-which Sanford wore. After  . hearing- the evidence Mag-istrate Hind  fined the accused $5 and costs.  'ON   THE   RESERVATION.  The F/tireka camp on the reservation  has been attracting-considerable attention during- the last month,  but excitement rose to a fever heat when a fine  .grade of free milling- ore was encoun-  tered on  the Republic mine', at a depth  of  140 feet.    The   assaj's which   have  been made run  from $60 to :ir.70  to the  ton.    The discovery of free milling- ore  at this depth upsets all theories reg-ard-  ing-   mining-  in   Eureka,   and   adjacent  camps  on this side of the line.    It was  maintained   that   free   milling-   would  turn   to   base  as   depth  was  attained.  There has been, a rush to IDureka during-   the   past   two   weeks,   and Curlew  lake has received its share of prospectors.    Several   new locations have been  made.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  THE   FREIGHT QUESTION.  H. E. McDonald, the C. P. R. freight  agent for Kootenay and Boundary  Creek, came to Greenwood on Tuesday,  his object being to smooth over any C.  P. R. freight difficulties. Whether he  attained his object or not is difficult to  state, but he at least kept his temper  while the merchants of Greenwood  hurled their anathemas against the C.  P. R. in general and its Penticton  agent , in particular. Mr. McDonald  has a reputation for straightening put  freight tangles, and he may be able to  so arrange mattters that nine-tenths of  the freight will not come in. by way of  Marcus and Bossburg, as at present.  The company has made arrangements  with J. W. Bassett to carry freight  from Penticton to Greenwood all the  the year round for $1.50 per TOO pounds.  On the other hand, the people of Bossburg have not been idle. They are  ambitidus, in the little town on Corbin's railway, and they, would rather  see the freight and freighters come to  Bossburg than to Marcus. So the  Bossburg Transportation company was  formed, and it guarantees to haul  freight to Greenwood 10 cents per 100  lower than it is being hauled from any  other distributing point. It guarantees to see that freight is safely stored  at Bossburg, that it is handled without  delay, andthat the consignees are given  advance notice of'the time of arrival  at Greenwood. Mr. E- D. Morrison,  the well known stage man, has associated himself with the Transportation  company.  The easiest way for the C. P. R. to  settle freight difficulties and to secure  the trade of Boundary Greek district is  by immediately constructing a railway  from Penticton. It will never have  the same opportunity as it has this  summer.  MONARCH SOLD.  J. E. Boss, representing R. E. Brown  of Spokane,  arrived in Greenwood on  Saturday for the purpose of closing the  deal in connection with the purchase of  the Monarch Claim in Greenwood camp.  It will be  remembered  that the  Monarch was one of the proper ties tied up  in the suit instituted by  Thomas  Atkinson. He claimed from Messrs. Eind,  Humphries and Keightley a quarter interest  in   the Anaconda townsite, the  Monarch, Montezuma and other claims.  Shortly after the suit was started  Atkinson died, and the matter was thereby further complicated.    Recently the  suit   was  dismissed  at Vancouver for  want  of  prosecution,   the costs being  taxed   against  the    Atkinson   estate.  The properties were therefore left free.  The arrangements made by Mr. Brown  with  respect  to   the  purchase of  the  Monarch were $12,500,   payable July 1,  or a $15,000 bond, good for six months.  Mr. Boss was so well pleased with the  property that the decision was  arrived  at to pay the cash on  July  1, and the  money was paid into the National bank  , at Spokane.    Mr. Boss returned to Sxdo-  kane on Monday.  Neil Hardy, a brother of Thomas  Hardy, of the Palace hotel, Anaconda,  has about completed the erection of his  two-story hotel on the North Fork at  the mouth of Lame creek. A license  has already been secured for the premises.  Thomas Ella of Vancouver, who represents the famous McUary stoves,  paid a business visit to Greenwood this  week.  ~Wgb'  W.     J.

SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1897.  COMPANIES' LICENSES.  Several plans-were" adopted by mining- companies to avoid paying the $100  .company's  license  on  June   30.    The  simplest method was for the company  to  transfer the claims to one in whom  it had confidence.    A   private individual  can   hold ��� claims  on   an  ordinary  miner's   license. ��� The   rush   to   avoid  paying   the    larger   license   probably  accounted for the exceptionally large  number of transfers recorded at Midway last week.    The Boundary Mines  company transferred all their interest  ���in the Mother Ivode,   Glasgow,  Helen,  McGregor, and I^ady of the I^ake claims  to  its manager,   Mr.   F. Keffer.    The  Observation    Gold    Mining   company  transferred   all   interest   in  the Gold  Nugget, Pay Ore, Quartz King, American Bill, Western Queen and one-half  interest in Crown Jewel to J. H. Perkins.  RAILWAY MATTERS.  Recent rumors confirm the statement  made in the Times a short time aero  that the residents of Boundary Creek  were fortunate, because while active  railwaj'" construction has^ not/ beg-un  yet, ������ there is a plethora of promises  held out by which they can keep their1  courage up. The3r are simply enjoying  a Barmecide railway feast from one  end of the year to the other. . Railway  promoters declare their intentions of  building- in the near future from the  east, west, north and south ; and when  one scheme becomes stale another one  is produced to fill its. place.  The latest railwa}7, rumor, and one  which does not appear unreasonable, is  to the effect that Vice-President  Shaugnessv of the Canadian Pacific  railway is coming- from the east, and  that his company will rush the work of  constructing a road from Penticton to  Robson regardless of-Heinze and his  system. This rumor is not likely to  enthuse the people of Greenwood, as  the3r have heard similar ones before.  Apropos of railway matters, John  Ross Robertson's paper, the Toronto  Telegram, tells a very interesting storv  regarding the Heinze deal. Mr. Rob-  ertson is a member of the dominion  parliament and strongly opposed any  aid being- given to Mr. Heinze. The  Telegram sa}rs :  "The Heinze railway- scheme, which  failed to pass the committee in the  house the other day, seems to have  been one of rather gig-antic proportions.  The   dominion   subsidv   for 200   miles  was $10,000   per   mile,   which   equals  about $2,000,000.    The provincial government subsidy for the first 100 niiles  was $4,000 per  mile, equal to $400,000.  A large acreage of valuable land was  to be  given  as   a bonus for the other  hundred  miles.    It appears that after  the road was finished if was to be taken  over by the C. P. R., arid that the implied  understanding spoken  of in the  committee really meant that the C. P.  R. was to give $22,000 per mile in cash  for the road after it was completed; or  as  an  alternative the  builders of the  road were  willing to   take the  C.   P.  R.'s  guarantee for their   bonds,   and  sellout for $i5,000 cash per mile for 200  miles.    This would  be  $3,000,000; and  with  the   $2,000^000   from   the dominion,   ,and   with   the    provincial    subsidyof $400,000 would   make   a   total  of   $5,400,000.     It   is . stated that  the  rake-off/in the transaction would  have  been between two and three  millions,  but putting the amount at $1,50.0,000 it  would be quite  a  neat  sum  to  divide  amongst the  promoters.    It  is  understood that two of the principals wanted  68 per cent.!   of  the  rake-off,  but  that  another principal interested would not  agree to this proportion."  Officers Installed.

The day upon which loyal Canadians  celebrate the confederation of the province will be a red letter day  in the history of Grand  Forks.    The people of  that usualljr quiet village fairly tumbled over each other with  excitement.  All its citizens, from its  chief .magistrate  down to the colored  gentleman  who breaks horses   for  a   living-   and  eng-ag-es    in    a    prize    fight  in    the  mayor's barn   for    amusement,   were  caught   in   the   wave   of   excitement.  Vig-ilance  committees,   lynching-   and;,  other  terrible things were spoken of,  but   nothing-   serious    resulted.     The  cause was not hard to find.    A few of  the  spirited  citizens of  Grand Forks  thought they would leave their peaceful avocation of building- castles in the  air to the music of the Canadian band  and engage in the enterprise of mining,  .  they  having- heard that; a few of the  people of  Greenwood were   following  that pursuit, and that it would be well  to   emulate   their'��� example.    Unfortu-  nately,  however, being-  unacquainted  with the correct mode of procedure in  dealing- with mines,  their good intentions were frustrated by their  ignorance.;   They were also unfortunate in  fixing upon the Volcanic for their first  experiment.      Nature    and     "Crazy"  Brown have succeeded in making the  Volcanic famous.    It is a mountain of  no one knows what save that Brown  said it contained millions.    He, afterwards increased the amount to billions,  and then  the  Olive Mining  company  was formed with a capital of $20,000,-  000 to take over and develop the mine.  The Iron Cap and Wolverine were then  thrown in to make a group in the prospectus and give the company the necessary ballast.   ;  Now, the principal officers of the company \ are residents of the country of  the stars and stripes, but Mayor J. A.  Manly  of Grand  Forks  is vice-president.    To  him  was  entrusted  the responsible work of keeping posted on all  the doings of the provincial legislature,  and to see that they, should introduce  no acts that would "euchre"  the company out   of the $20,000,000 property.  Mayor   Manly, however, having been  busily eng-aged in the work of making  the Queen's, Birthday  celebration and  its $2.50 display of fireworks a success,  overlooked   the   fact that   under   the  new   mining   act  all  companies  must  secure  companies' licenses  by July 1.  It is reported, however,   that  he sent  Nels 1/arson, a heavy stockholder,   to  E}ureka    to   look    at   some   property.  "Crazy"   Brown  was sent with W. A.  Carljde  to  dilate upon the wonderful  richness and the wonderful showing-s  in the vicinity of Grand Forks, the citizens presumably hugg-irig- the delusion  that the provincial  mineralogist's report might be influenced hj the magnitude of Brown's figures.  The road being clear George Cum-  mings and E}d. Titsworth went up on  Dominion day and relocated the Volcanic, Wolverine and Iron Cap. That  is, they thought they did ; but in their  excitement they missed the Wolverine  and the Iron Cap���a yellow-legged min-,  Rossland.  Investment and  LIMITED   LIABILITY.  Greenwood.

They returned to Grand Forks and regaled Dr. Ave^rill (a partner of Mayor  Manley's,) with a report of their work.  Although Dr. ^verill is a heavy shareholder in the Olive company, Mayor  Manly had not consulted him about  the matter, and consequently he was  not hearing any second hand news.  The doctor is a man of action and he  soon went to work to circumvent the  chief magistrate. Procuring a fast  team he drove in hot haste to- Midway  and secured a company's license for  the Olive Mining company. Gold Commissioner L/ambly has expressed the  opinion that as one day's grace is  always given, even to a $20,000,000 com-  pairy, the license will hold good.  Dr. Averill returned from Midway  on Friday week, and as he passed  through Greenwood there was blood in  his eye. A report from Grand Forks  states that he had an interview with  Mayor Manly when he returned, and  that compliments were interchanged so  loudly that the music of the Canadian  band could not be heard���not even the  Wagnerian strains of the festive mos-  quitoes.  How the matter will be settled it is  difficult to state. The Volcanic enjo}rs  one or more lawsuits now, and another  will'make but little difference.  T  B  A  O  T  a  1  j  �����5  e  W.   S.

Mr. D'Aeth was one of the owners of  the Sunset, which- was bonded to a  Montreal syndicate.  Mr. F}. L. Mtmns of London arrived  in Greenwood on Wednesday. He is  associated with Mr. A. H. Woodhouse,  who bonded the Anaconda group for  an English syndicate. Mr. Muhris  thoroughly examined the property, and.  it is understood that a number of nien  will be put to work in a very short time.  ���'-'������ ��� ''.''���'- ,'P      ��� " '  Professors John R. Parks of Helena,  Montana, and; George W. Elliott of  Carson, B. C, were among the mining  men who visited Greenwood this week.  While this is Prof. Parks' first visit to  Boundary Creek, he is no���'. stranger to  British Columbia. He lived for several  years in Kootenay and was for a number of years connected with the Pilot  Bay smelter. He is a mining expert of  long experience, having represented  eastern companies in Colorado and  other mining states in the Union- His  object in coming to this district is to  acquire property for an eastern syndicate, and he lost no time in examining  mines that are for sale in the different  camps. He and Mir. Elliott left on  ���Wednesday for Eureka camp, where  thejr will also lookkt some properties.  THE  GOLCONDA  GROUP.  The members of the late federal government have sought for  relief  from  the monotony of opposition  in the excitement of British Columbia mining.  Hon. T. M. Daly, the ex-minister of the  interior j  has  moved to Rossland and,  as is well known,  he is president and  the principal shareholder  in the Brandon and Golden Crown company, owning   the Golden   Crown   and   Calumet  claims    in     Wellington      camp.      Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper has  taken   a  chance  in Kootena}' mines.    Hon. Dr.  Montague and other ex-members of the  cabinet have also taken chances in^the  lottery  of mining   speculation.    Even  Hon. Geo. E. Foster,  the eloquent and  erudite ex-minister of-finance  caught  the   mining fever, and during his trip  last fall he ptirchased several interests.  He   uses   good  judgment, too,,   in   his  mining operations, for a short time ag-o  he secured from Mr. J. C. Haas, E^M.,  a half interest in the Golconda group  of  claims   in Smith's camp.    The Gol-  conda g-roup is considered by experts  to be one of the most promising properties in the whole district.    There are in  all' five  claims: The Golconda, Cleveland, Eaocoon, York, and Wild Rose.  These claims were formerly owned  by Mr. Haas and Mr. Dales, but Mr.  Haas secured Mr. Dales' half interest.  He then negotiated with Mr. Foster  for the purchase of a half interest, and  in a short time closed the deal, the  transfers having been recorded at Midway last week.  Mr. Haas has at the present time a  force of men at work on the Golconda.  A shaft is down about 55 feet and is  running through- veiw rich ore.  Hon. Mr. Foster expects to visit  Boundaiw" Creek this summer, and in  all probability will make further investments in mining properties.

GEISE IS SURPRISED.  Mr. Hans Geise, the German consul  at Tacoma, and Mr. H. Venhoff* an  eminent mining expert from Berlin,  who spent several weeks in Boundary  Creek district this spring, are again in  Greenwood, While they are rather reticent about their intentions it is understood that they are anxious to invest  German capital in niines in this district. -.',  Mr. Geise was rather surprised when  a Times representative showed him a  report of Hon. A. G. Blair's speech oh  the Crow's Nest Pass railway subsidy.  In that speech the minister of railways  read freely from a report by Mr. Geise  on Boundary Creek district. Mr. Geise  says his report was a confidential one,  was never intended for publication,  and he is at a loss to understand how it  came into the possession of the minister of railways.  Hon. Mr. Blair's remarks that refer  particularly to Mr. Giese's report are  as follows:  "Now I have  in  my  hand  another  authoritative statement which I think  it proper to put in possession of the committee.    A  representative  of  the  imperial German government took occasion   to   visit   British ��� Columbia,   and  spent  some months in  the  portions I  have mentioned, including the Boundary district, of which he made a careful study.    He himself was a mineral-  ogieal expert, and has been in South  America, in Africa, and in all the mineral countries of the world, and I suppose it was on account of his ability in  that regard that the Imperial German  goverhment charged him with the duty  of making to them a careful report of  the possibilities and of the  outlook of  the  province  of British Columbia and  of the neighboring state of Washington.    He went over both these sections  of country.    I  will  only  take  up  the  time  of   the   committee    by    reading  an extract from his interesting report.  To ine it was an  exceedingly interesting report, because it was not only a  careful   and  conservative  report���the  report    of    a    man    who    apparently  was determined not to exaggerate the  condition of things at all, but it was a  report at the same time of one who had  no interest to overstate the casein any  way, .but who only wished to present  ,  the facts  for the  information, of his  government.  Mr. Wilson���" What is the name  of  the gentleman ?"  The      minister      of    railways     and  canals���"His,name is Hans Geise.    He  went over all the different districts of  British Columbia that I  have named.  He went  first through Rossland, then  into   the  west  Kootenay  section   and  Boundaiw Creek,up to Eillooet, and his  survey  of  the  situation   embraces all  those    various    portions     of    British  Columbia.    In   referring- to Boundary  Creek he  says: 'The. third division is  'Boundary'Creek itself, with its various  camps.    Here   it is not so  easy to. decide the question of the  superiority of  any   one spot over the other.    Midway7"  is here the controlling- point of a wider  country, but it is outside the cluster of  Boundary   Creek "camps.    There   has,  therefore, sprung- up  in the  Boundaiw  Creek   Valle}'   three   little   villages���  Greenwood City, Anaconda and Boundary   Falls, of  which each   calls   itself  the most advantageous,   and  therefore  the place of the future. But as they  have all closed together where the valley narrows the supposition seems that  the whole valley will be sometime one  continuous line of city life for several  miles.'  VAIvUE OF THE REPORT.  ' 'Now, I want the committee ,��� to tin- :  derstahd the value of this report. There  is the information of an independent  authority; there is the opinion of a man  who had ho interest whatever in exaggerating-     the    favorable    conditions  which exist in that country.    He was  making a report  for the information  alone of his own government; and we  find  here  that  he makes a statement  after having looked the ground   over  and with a knowledge which he has of  the effect  of mineral  development in  portions of the world that the supposition is but natural that the whole valley of Boundary  Creek will  be some  time one- continuous line of city life.  Well, now, what does such an ultimate  accomplishment  depend  upon?    Why  it depends solely upon their being trans->  portation facilities  afforded and railway construction, and means by which  the people who are willing to go in and  develop the country may get in supplies  and fuel and carry the products of their  niines out of the country.    It only depends upon  that,  and  it does seem to  me a serious question whether it is not  the  duty of parliament. to lend every  possible aid so far as practicable to rer  tain the exclusive possession of the valuable territory.  5>  SEPARATE Sealed Tenders, endorsed "Ten.  der Government Offices, Grand Forks,"  or "'Tender Lock-Up, Greenwood," as the case  may-be, will be received at the Government  Office, Vernon, by the undersigned up to 13  o'clock, noon, of Friday, the 6th day of August,  1897, for the erection of       '    ..   .     .

In all probability a customs officer will be established at Greenwoodin the near future.  Mr. J. S.

Mr. Stunden  visited this district and Kootenay  about two years ago and was naturally  astonished to find the thriving town of  Greenwood instead of the log cabin,  which was the only building- at the'  time of his first visit.  Speaking -of the customs, Mr. Stunden stated that the department was  anxious to'meet the growth of the different sections of the country, and he  was instructed to report where additional offices were required.

It is now in about  120 feet.  Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney intends visiting Boundary Creek district  shortly' with a view to investing in its  mines. The lieutenant-governor is  heavily interested in Kootenay mines,  and it is understood that the .syndicate  with whom he is associated have held a  representative looking- at property in  this district.  L,. Bosshart and F. Dittmer completed this week the assessment work  on the Gold Drop, adjoining the Jewel  on the north,'-by sinking- two prospect  holes about fifty feet above the shaft,  and exposing- the ieclg-e in both instances. The Gold Drop is a. very-  promising prospect, and some fine specimens of free gold have been obtained  therefrom lately.  The Prospecting syndicate of British  Columbia have two men at work on the  North Star, in Iyong Lake camp, which  they bonded last May from Messrs.  Thomet & Wood. The work was first  started from the bottom of the 100-foot  shaft, sunk last year by the owners,  but the air here was found to be so foul  that it was decided instead of sinking  to run a tunnel from the side hill to tap  the ledge, which is very-; flat.  The argument in the Jack of Spades  lawsuit, in which Mr. Robert Wood is  interested, was concluded at Vancouver  on Tuesday last, but a decision may  not be given for several days yet. Mr.  Wood expects to return home on Wednesday night. It is not known whether  he discovered while on the coast the  cause for the government's delay in  pushing Greenwood incorporation. No  word has, been received here yet regarding the matter.     .;  The Columbia & Western railway  company have definitely decided to  make the narrow gauge line between  Trail  and Rossland a standard gauge.  A meeting of the opposition members  of the legislature' was held in; Vancouver a few days ago. The questions  of more complete organization and the  issuing of a platform were discussed.  The, most startling recent event in  political circles is; the, declaration of  Hon. D. W.

The unseasonable wet weather of the  past" two weeks is not without its advantages. The brush surrounding  the city could now be burnt without  danger, and it is^ to be hoped that the  citizens will avail themselves of the  opportunity. The midsummer sun will  take but a short time again to make  everything- as dry as tinder, and if an  effort is to be made to lessen the dang-er  from fire it should be made at once.  The brushwood from the north end of  Greenwood to below Anaconda should  be fired. The volunteer fire department Eire losing- no time in g-etting  everj'thing in shape. The larg-e triangle -has been placed in position on  the pump house and the ladders are  about completed. Fire alarm cards  have been printed and will be distributed among the different houses so that  all will know from the number of the  alarm the location of the fire.  It might-be mentioned here that the  two powder magazines are still guarding either sides of Greenwood. Its residents would feel sa.fer if the magazines were removed to a greater distance.
