GREENWOOD CITY, B.C., SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1897.  46  No. 20.  lgMX���J^a^c.^J*^���t-^.*.^l^wwwv^l^^���fa^^^wy^lMHg^y��M  ^.ttwtn, i w��Mimii��iiit0WM^M^ii��utjj��i,iii��ii��,w  REDISTRIBUTION.  ��w< |f/N the natural course of events a general provincial  election will take place shortly after the next session of the legislature. The present govern-  51 ment has been criticized in certain quarters because no redistribution bill was introduced last  session. The government's answer to this criticism was that the population was continually increasing ;  that certain districts would be developed more rapidly than  others, and that the proper time for a redistribution of seats  was immediately preceding the general election. > There can  be but little fault found with the government's line of argument, and it is to be hoped that it will carry out its pledges  and introduce a redistribution at the, next session of the  legislature. But if the government wish to deal honestly  with the people, if they are not afraid of the popular verdict, if they have no. intention of retaining office without  representing the people, the redistribution bill to be introduced must be different from the act now in force in the  province. A study of the last general election returns will  show that all the pocket boroughs returned supporters of  the government while the majority of the important and  populous constituencies are represented by members of the  opposition party ; in fact the 11 opposition members in the  house represent nearly as many votes as the twenty-two  government members. The last redistribution act simply  legalized the gerrymandering of the province. No better  evidence of this can be found than the following figures:  No.  VOT-HS  District.  Cariboo  456  Cassiar  206  Comox  522  Cowichan-Alberni  516  East Kootenay  625  Esq ui malt .-  451  East and West Lillooet  319  Nanaimo City  974  North Nanaimo  702  South Nanaimo  294  New Westminister City  1,40<>  Vancouver Citv  3,790  Victoria City -'.--  4,617  North Victoria  330  South Victeria  597  Northwest  Kootenay.....: ..>.... -���-������-- ....." 550  South Kootena3'.

They  will convince even the most prejudiced that there is nothing fair about the last redistribution bill. Upon no grounds  can anyone justify the granting of two members to L/illooet  with 319 votes while Bast Yale secured only one member with 1,022 votes, or Cariboo having two members with  556 votes, while South Kootenay has only one member with  925 votes. The portion of East Yale district from Penticton  south is just as isolated, more important, and had at the  time of redistribution more votes than Eillooet, yet L,illooet  secured two members while the southern portion of East Yale  district was compelled to struggle along with a representative who lived in the northern and farming portion of the  district.  We are all well aware that the government of the day  were influenced by the sectional jealousy which unfortunately prevailed at that time, but which is now dying out,  and that it was for this reason that Esquimalt, a compact  district adjacent to Victoria and with only a voting power of 451, secured two members, while other districts  on the Island  had  proportionately  greater representation;  than  those  on the mainland.    Now that the population of  ' the mainland is double that of the Island a fair redistribution will give the mainland double the representation.  In the new redistribution act East Yale should be subdivided. We venture to predict that that portion of the district south of Penticton will have 1,000 votes before the next  election, and in fact may have that number today; and this  being purely a mining district, should have a representative  of its own. The northern portion of East Yale district has  also rapidly increased in population' and is entitled to a  member. Kootenay and other districts which have grown  rapidly since the last- election are also entitled to more  representatives.  -'ip  -'ip~  TRIBUTARY   TO   GREENWOOD.  When the mining division of Grand Forks was created we  ventured the assertion that the object of the government in  extending the western boundary to the summit between the  North Fork and Kettle River, was for the purpose of assisting those interested in Grand Forks townsite,.in making the  investing public believe that Grand Forks was the centre  of a large and important mining district.    The last issue of  the Grand Forks Miner attempts to boom the newly created  division because the Golden Crown was among the properties included therein.    The Times fully endorses every word  that  is  said  by  the  Miner commendatory  of  the Golden  Crown, but neither the Brandon and Golden Crown Mining  company���nor Grand Forks, for that matter���will be  benefitted by the assertion that "under the new arrangement of  mining divisions this property belongs to the Grand Forks  mining division, and its development will be a great help  toward   making this   the   greatest  mineral   district   in the  country."    The Golden Crown, like other valuable  properties in Wellington camp, are  being  operated from Greenwood, where its manager makes his headquarters, buys all  supplies  and   transacts   all  business connected  with   the  mine.    Because  the government saw fit to place a portion  of Wellington camp in the   Grand  Forks   mining  division  property owners  are of  course  compelled  to  go  there  to  transact any business connectedwiththe .recorder's  office,  but beyond that their connection ceases with that pretty  little rural village on the'banks of the Kettle river.    We are  quite willing to give Grand Forks all the credit for being  adjacent to the Volcanic and a few other claims, but properties in Wellington and Greenwood camps are tributary to  Greenwood,   as  the  supplies  for all of them are purchased  here.  -ip  'tf-  A   QUERY   ANSWERED.  The Victoria Colonist anxiously enquires whether the  Boundary Creek Times can be purchased with a bottle of  champagne. We make haste to answer that the Boundary  Creek Times, not being a slave of monopolistic corporations nor the organ of a designing administration, its opinions cannot be purchased at any price. After all the purchase price of the Boundary Creek Times does not concern the public.    What they are concerned about iswhether  the members of the government or the lieutenant-governor  are susceptible of being influenced by the winning ways of  subsidy hunters.  -'ip  Me.  -'IP  It is hoped that mine owners and holders of claims will  do their part towards'making the exhibit of minerals at the  Okanagan Agricultural & Trades Exhibition worthy of  Boundary Creek district by sending in specimens at an  early date. These may be left with Mr. C. S. Galloway or  at The Times office. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES;  HEAD     OFFICE:      ROSSLAND,      B.C.

The Kamloops "District Liberal Association" have started a movement to  organize a Provincial Iviberal Association. Victoria liberals have already  endorsed the action of the Kamloops  association. In the circular letter which  the Kamloops liberals have addressed  to well-known ������ liberals throughout  the province the following- reference is  made to the general provincialelectio.tis  to be held next year :  "The question has been raised as to  whether the liberals should make a  straight party fight for supremacy in  -the local political affairs of British Columbia at the provincial elections to be  Tield next year. It is a question which  a little reflection will show requires to  be considered with great care ami circumspection. The object we have in  view in this matter is the good of the  province. Will that object be better  .served by dividing- the electorate of the  province on party lines (liberal and  conservative) or by continuing- the  present lines of division as they appear  in the legislature at Victoria ?"  The liberals of Greenwood and vicinity are discussing- the advisability of  joining-, and a meeting- will be held in  the schoolhouse on Monday evening-,  July 26. All liberals are requested to  attend.  EUREKA CAMP.  Mr. R. C. Johnson, the well known  prospector, came up from Eureka camp  oil Thursday. He corroborates the-re-,  -port of the rush to that camp, and  states that there are some wonderful  ���showings in the district. He is strongly  of the opinion that the rush to Eureka  will result advantageously to Bound-  ar3r Creek district, as many of those  who are now attempting- to invest in  Eureka will turn their attention to the  larg-er field across the line. The boom  in Eureka will also hasten railway con-  ..struction to the district.  LIBERAL   ASSOCIATION.  A meeting- of all Liberals in the  "Kettle River Mining Division will be  held at the school-house, Greenwood,  'on Monday evening, July 26th, for the  purpose of forming an association. All  Eiberals are requested to attend.  Thomas Walsh has  several  men   at  work on the Montana Eucy and three  other   claims   recently   purchased  by  him.    They   are located in Wellington  ��� camp.  J*  * SPORTING   GOODS.  '���"   ,     - jJVfa.     ��>i   -'i\fe-  , -���   tip"     tiS .  tip" .   u: .

Preliminary steps are being taken to-  organize an Odd-fellows' lodge in  Grand Forks.  Rendell & Go. have secured the  license for their bonded warehouse and  will put in a large stock of liquorst  It is reported that Mr. Hedley of Nelson discussed the erection of a smelter  ,   at Midway with Capt. R.C. Adams.  J. C. Coupil is rapidly recovering,  from the effects of a fall from a building which he was painting last week.  Captain Adams left on Saturday last  to attend to his mining interests in  Kootenay. He will return to Midway  in September. :  The Boundary Creek Mining & Milling Co. intend to secure a new map of  their 12 claims as soon as the surveys  are completed.  Mr. R. Smailes,   the   Chief   Deputy  High  Ranger,   I.   O.   F.,  has received  the certificates of membership for the  members of Boundary lodge.  A.   E.    McNaughton,   the   old-time  ���/ champion  lacrosse  player,   but now a  Vancouver wholesale man, paid Greenwood a business visit yesterday.  J. W. Reed of Midway and Miss Hopper, daughter of Mr. Hopper of Anaconda, were married at Grand Forks on  Thursday. Mr. and Mrs. Reed will  make their home at Midway.  "' ���'Hon. G. B. Martin, tne chief commissioner of lands and works, is. expected to arrive in Greenwood from  Kootenay next week. He will spend  some time in the Boundary Creek district.  . '- .'���'"." ;  The Providence "hotel in Boundary  Creek city was opened by Messrs. McDonald & Holbrook last week. The  house itself is a comfortable one, while  some choice liquors and cigars are to  be found at the bar.  Several men are at work constructing the wagon road to Eong Eake. The  residents have contributed so generously that it is expected that there  will be sufficient funds to complete the  road to the lake.  Mr. R. E- Brown, who is heavily interested in Boundary Creek property,  left England a few days ago, and it is  understood that he intends visiting the  district shortly after his arrival in Victoria. A large force of men will be  put to work on the Monarch mine.  Yesterday Greenwood was visited by  a heavy thunderstorm, the rain falling  in torrents. This summer has been  an unusually wet one in Boundary  Creek and surrounding districts. So  far the rain has benefitted the farmers  in the valleys but they are now anxious  for a dry season until their crops are  harvested.  James McConnell, one of the pioneers of Kettle river district, has been  in the Greenwood hospital for a week  suffering from pleurisy. Under Dr.  Jakes' treatment he is recovering rapidly and will be around in a few days.  M. Whalen from Grand Prairie has  also been in the hospital for a week but  is now rapidly recovering.  Reports from the different camps are  to the effect that there are many men  in the mountains either prospecting or  doing- assessment work on claims.  While a number of these are newcomers  from other mining districts the majority make their headquarters at Greenwood, and will return to town as soon  as the wet weather sets in.  The berry season has opened and  every day ladies and gentlemen from  Greenwood g-o into the hills prospecting for the luscious fruit. Mesdames  Naden, Frazee and McArthur struck a  rich "ledge" of berries in Copper camp  Thursday last, and on Friday last Mes  srs. McArthur^ and'Frazee went up to  Pass creek on a fishing and berry  picking expedition.  MINING  NOTES.  R. Denzler returned on Thursday  from a prospecting trip to Monashee  mountain.  "William Tuttle, a Denver mining  man, spent the week examining Boundary Creek properties with a view to investment.  Many locations have been made recently in the vicinity of Christina Eake.  Several of the properties there are  turning out well.  James ��F. Eeahy of Findlaj'-, Ohio,  who visited Greenwood a few weeks  ago, is at present in Gra.nd Forks looking after some interests he secured in  Grand Prairie. Mr. Eeahy has some  valuable property in the Slocan and  since leaving here he has spent the  time in Kootenay.  Neil McCallum of Grand Forks has  gone to Spokane to prosecute H. Far-  ren, who jumped the Elsie May .mine.  Farren is charged with haying cut  down the notices qf the owners of the  Elsie May. Mr. McCallum maintains  that the Elsie May company secured  their license on June 22.  W. H. Young, representing R. E.  Brown, arrived in Anaconda last week  and paid' Messrs. Keightley, Humphries & Eind $13,500, the final payment  on account of the Monarch mine in  Greenwood camp. It is understood that  considerable work will be carried out  on the Monarch this summer.  Dr. Christie and J. Haniill left today oh a ten days' prospecting trip  through McRae pass and on to lower  Arrow Eake. For some time past Dr.  Christie has been developing the  Springdale claim in Skylark camp'with  gratifying results. The ore is exceedingly rich, and as there is a big vein  the Springdale \ is likely to prove a valuable-property. It is owned by Messrs.  Christie, Galloway and Black.  KEREMEOS.  [SPECIAL    CORRESPONDENCE.]  There is considerable activity in  mining in this district. Ore will be  shipped at once from the Roadside  claim. This claim is owned by D.  Courtney (the discoverer), W. T. Shat-  ford and Steve Mango.t. The ore averages $61.50 in gold, silver and copper.  It is reported that the ledge is 85 feet  between walls. ", The claim is rather  singular in-as-much as no float was  found and the ore cropped out, only in  one place and looked like a poor quality of conglomerate.  Ore will also be shipped from the-  Goodenough, which is owned by Charles  Richter and Jack Allison. This claim  shows an ore body of from five to  twelve feet and is well defined. An  assayer from Fairview secured average  samples from the property and obtained  the almost incredible return of $1,078  to the ton. Your correspondent stood  by' and watched the assayer secure the  sample, and wagered that the assay  would not average more than $40.  Needless to say I lost the bet. The  Goodenough joins the Roadside claim  on the west. Everyene is sticking to  their claims, as it now appears that  Keremeos, instead of being- a low grade  camp has ore as rich as any in British  Columbia.  The Nebuchadnezzar will also ship  ore that runs $150 to the ton. This is  an old prospect that was located half-  a-dozen times and the ore was looked  upon as common country  rock,   but it  was found by breaking through the  capping that it was entirely different.  The ore is different from anything  your correspondent has seen in Boundary Creek and I will send a sample.  The Wyandotte company has secured  a working bond on the Goodenough for  $100,000, paying $1,000 downv arid have  a large number of men at work taking  out ore and building a tramway, which  is now about completed.  There are in all about 200 locations  in this camp arid about 75 prospectors  are in the hills. Claims, are being negotiated for, with a probability of considerable work being done during the  summer.  THE   COAST  RAILWAY.  Mr. Aulay Morrison, M.P., who has  just returned to New Westminster from  Ottawa stated to a representative of  the Columbian that "we have every  assurance that any intermediate line  of railway will only be an installment  of a through line; to the coast. The  government, at present, whether  rightly or wrongly, are of opinion that  there is not sufficient evidence before  them that an extension to the coast is  commercially feasible. Knowing this,  I for my part have been persuading the  governmerit and members of the house  on both sides to pay a visit to British  Columbia, and, if possible the-districts  through which this road would probably pass, look into our resources, and  see for themselves the vast heritage  that Canada" has in the Pacific pro-.  vince. There is rio doubt," continued  Mr. Morrison, "that until a fuller  knowledge of this province is acquired  by the people in the east by personal  observation it will be a matter of the  greatest difficulty to teach them that  the destiny of the dominion of Canada  lies in British Columbia.''  Kootenay is being developed rapidly  if the increase in the number of newspapers is any criterion. The Nelson  Economist, published by Dave Carley,  erstwhile editor of Victoria Home Journal, is the latest to make its bow to the  public. The Economist is bright and  newsy arid should meet with success.  Another paper has been started at  Kaslo and a third at Silverton...  A British Columbia Provincial General Election, 1898, Electoral Eeague  has been organized. Its object is : To  'ensure every qualified person being  placed on the register of provincial,  voters; to "make transfers in any  change of district or riding ; to encourage evei-y voter to record his vote at  the poll. The league is organized  without regard to party politics. Correspondents will be appointed in different districts.  CORYELL'S MAP, Price $1.25.  LIME   JUICE.  F>/VTErSfT     MEDICINES,  ..uc.

Milne has returned to Victoria from the, East,  and through the  coast  papers  has been explaining his  position regarding the railway fight at  Ottawa.    In speaking of the agreement  which he signed, the doctor said :        \l:  "It was not a regular agreement, but  only  a rough sketch of one.    I signed  it,  and so did   Mr. McEean, but I did  not consider it binding enough  on the  Columbia & Western; and at the time  I signed I said I would have to show it  to my lawyer, Mr. J. A.. Gemmill. I did  show it to Mr. Gemmill; and he thoug-ht  as I did,   that it  was not sufficiently  binding to force the Columbia & Western to build to the coast; consequently  they were immediately notified of Mr.  Gemmill's decision.    There was never  '     a  copy made of the agreement; it was  only   a   rough   sketch. ,'. The. Heinze  people were to receive a 46 per cent, interest in the  company,   and, our  company were to retain the controlling interest.    For this  46  per  cent, interest,  the  Heinze people were to pay $50,000,  which  represented their proportion of  the money we had already expended in  connection  with  the   Burrard  Inlet &  Eraser Valley and the Victoria & Eastern railway for surveys and so on. The  ���draft   agreement    was, however, as I  .said,   not binding  enough   on the Columbia  &   Western'to  force  them to  build to   the   coast.    The   main  point  with me was, would,they carry out the  road to the coast ?    There would  have  been no attempt to amalgamate, but it  it was suggested in the committee when  ci\   the  Columbia,  and  Western could not  get their bill  through   the   committee.  The  offer  came from the Columbia &  Western,  but I never  had faith that  they would carry out the proj ect."  Dr. Milnes also advanced the opinion  that the V. V. & E-. had the sympathy  of the supporters of the government,  the opposition and the independents at  Ottawa, and when they supported a  subsidy for any line from the Columbia west it would be for a line right  throtigh to the coast. The Columbia &  Western were not likely to be granted  a charter, and at anyrate nothing would  now be done until next session. He  considered it better to wait until then  than to be tied down by an amalgamation with the Heinze company, whose  only object in dealing with the V. V. &  E. was to secure assistance for the  Columbia & Western.  It might suit Dr. Milne and his associates to wait another year and then  renew the raid on the Ottawa treasury,  but it is difficult to understand how  they can consider themselves entitled  to any consideration. In less than  another year legitimate railway promoters-���not hungry subsidy hunters-  will in all probability begin the construction of a road into Boundary Creek  district. Neither Dr. Milne's nor Mr.  Heinze's actions since they became  possessed of railway charters entitle  them to generous gifts from any government.  F. E. Eangford, a prominent attor-  iie3;' of Spokane, spent a few days in  Greenwood this week. His object was  to arrange certain matters in connection with the Combination  company.  .

SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1897;  TEMPEST   IN   A   TEA-POT.  The Boundary Creek correspondent  ���of the Vancouver News-Advertiser is  sending that; paper letters which are  generally interesting and accurate, but  being a dyspeptic individual he sometimes turns aside from legitimate news  and attempts by misrepresentation to  make heinous the frailties of others.  The Boundary Creek Times has the  distinguished honor of being the latest  ��� target for the criticisms of this very  brilliant correspondent. Making the  Boundary Mines Co. and its miner's  license the subject of his text, he as-  .-.. serfs that " the Boundary Mines Co.  has lately been subjected to misrepresentation in The Boundary Creek  Times which' was entirely uncalled  for," and further suggests that ." it is  .a great pity that irresponsible parties  should have jumped to unwarranted  conclusions when, by enquiring of the  resident manager, it could easily have  been ascertained that their assumptions were entirely without foundation." Unsatisfied with this terrible  ���onslaught, the correspondent further  exclaims " that it ill becomes anyone,  and least of all a local newspaper, to  idly assail its bona fides or attempt to  injure its good name."  We are quite willing that the News-  Advertiser correspondent  should  pour  ���the vials of his wrath upon us if he derives any satisfaction  therefrom,   but  would   respectfully    suggest   that   he  should consult Dr.  Jakes  before  writing any more letters.    There  is  something wrong with   his  liver.    In place  of wishing to injure the good  name of  the Boundary Mines Co. or " assail its  bona fides," we last week  gave  space  to   Mr.   Keffer's   explanation.      If   the  Boundary' Mines Co. wishes to transfer  its interests to its manager when other  companies are doing the same thing to  avoid pa3'ing- for   companies'   licenses,  and if the public jump   at  the   conclusion that the Boundary Mines   Co.   are  making the transfer with a similar object in view,   it   must   assume   the   re-  sponsibility,    not  we.      Even    if    the  Boundary   Mines   Co.    had   sought   to  avoid paying- the coinpan3r's license we  fail lo see how that could be construed  as a reflection   on   the   company ; and  ,since Mr. Keffer's explanation   (a very  satisfactory one) has been made public  there is no good reason for discussing  the" matter further.  The Boundary Creek Times tenders, the News-Advertiser's correspondent its heartfelt sympathy and hopes  that his affliction is only temporary.  We would dislike to see his interesting  ������ letters marred by such violent  philippics.. '.   '.-; e .   '     ..'.  ' ���-.'.'  Mr. Wood's Return.  Mr. Robert Wood returned from a  four weeks' trip to the coast on Wednesday. During his absence he made  satisfactory arrangements with M.  Gire regarding the Jack of Spades  mine. Mr. Wood found that the coast  people are showing great interest^ in  Greenwood and Boundary Creek district. They are niost anxious to see a  railway constructed. The C.P.R. officials are also showing a greater interest in, the district arid appear to be  more anxious to secure, its trade. It  wpnld not be at all surprising if the  Company began the work of constructing a railway from Penticton before  winter. Mr. Allah Cameron, the district freight agent, came down, with  Mr. Wood as far as Penticton.  Mr. Wood.did not go to Victoria, and  was surprised to learn that Greenwood  had not secured its letters patent long  ere this. He could hot understand why  there should be any delay in incorporating the town.  The development work which is being  carried out by Messrs. Keough & Son  on the B.C. in Summit camp is demonstrating that this property is one of  the largest in the whole district. A  shaft is being sunk and the ore continues to improve as depth is attained.  Two shifts are at work pumping the  water out of the shaft in the East  Chance, Skylark camp.  0  Anaconda, B,C  00  -Q^o^D-  Can outfit Prospectors cheaper  and better than any of  his Competitors,  .

Mr. Alfred Woodhouse returned to  Rossland' on Wednesday, having succeeded during his visit in satisfactorily  closing the deal for the purchase of the  Anaconda group from Mr. E. A. Bielenberg. The details of the deal were  published in The Times two weeks ago  but these were modified to meet the  views of Mr. Woodhouse's principals  in Eondon. The first arrangements  only secured for Mr.' Woodhouse and  his associates a half interest in the  property; but Mr. -Bielenberg, who  was anxious to see the property developed and have money spent in the district, consented to alter the agreement  so as to give the purchasers the privilege of acquiring the remaining half  interest after the development work  has been carried out. By the terms of  the agreement Mr. Bielenberg secures  $2,000 cash, and Mr. Woodhouse is  compelled to begin active and continuous development work by August 1st  and carry it on for a period of three  months. At that time, if the property  proves to be as valuable as present indications lead Mr. Woodhouse to believe, a company is to be organized  and Mr. Bielenberg secures a further  cash consideration and shares in the  company. Mr. Woodhouse is expected  to return to Greenwood about July 27th  for the purpose of putting men to work  on the property.  GREENWOOD  NOTES.  At a meeting of the Volunteer Fire  Company held on Monday evening it  was decided to purchase a suitable bell  for giving fire alarms, the gong having been found unsatisfactory. The  ladders are all completed and have  been placed on the side of Kerr &  Flood's butcher shop. The buckets  will be found in the pump-house,where  the axes and other apparatus belonging to the department are also kept. ,  J. A. Coryell, P.E.S., has completed  the work of surveying a mill site for  the Boundary Mines Co. at the confluence of Sunset and Copper creek. The  site is an excellent one and is sufficiently near the Mother Eode mine,  owned by the company.  Mrs. S. E. Graham arrived from  Armstrong on Wednesday to join her  husband.  Among the properties which have  shown up well through development  work is the Climax, in Skylarlc^cariip.  There is an ore vein running about 2%  feet, assays from which have given  $33 in gold and silver. The Climax is  near the Skylark mine and is owned  by Messrs. Eeslie Hill, J. Bell and J.  Fisher.  The Times is in receipt of a neat  catalogue from Chas. E. Tisdall, Vancouver, the well known importer of  arms, ammunition and sporting goods.  The catalogue gives the net prices of a  complete stock. Mr. Tisdall's business  is continually increasing; his prices  are low and his goods are of the best  quality. .���'"���'���  SEPARATE Sealed Tenders, endorsed "Tender Government Offices, Grand Forks,"  or ''Tender Lock-Up, Greenwood," as the case  ma^be7 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  Provincial Government Offices at Grand  Forks  and  LocK-Up at Greenwood.

' 'The best district and the poorest  work" is how J. H. Hall of Butte sums  up ..the-mining situation in Boundary  Creek district. Mr. Hall arrived here  ' last week and has spent a greater portion of the time since then in the  mountains examining properties. He  is an experienced 'mineralogist and is  interested in one of the big Butte  smelting companies.  "Since  leaving  Butte I have visited  several ;���; mining   districts,"   said   Mr.  Hall   to   a   Times representative.    "I  went into the Fort Steele country three  years ago, and after looking over the  situation I came away without investing.    Having heard so .much about the  : district 'this  summer  I   made   tip my  mind  to  go  in there again to see how  great   a mistake I  had  made  by  not  securing t some properties  three years  ago.    Well, I looked  over  the ground  again   and  came away satisfied that I  had made no serious error by not thinking it worth while to invest on my, first  visit.    I .have been   all   through Trail '  Creek and the Slocan where they  have  good paying mines.    I visited Eureka  (a good camp, overrboomed), and after  examining, the   properties here I must  say that in my opinion this is the best  district of  them all.    I am also forced  to the conclusion that the greater por- -  tion   of  the   work  done to develop the  properties has been  of  the  worst  description, and consequently  the camp  does not show up as well  as  it  might.  More    systematic   development   work  ought to bedone^ Our  company   does  not   speculate   in   mines;   we operate  them,   and we are anxious therefore to  see  what  we  are  buying  before purchasing.    When  we  are  satisfied  the  property   is  good   we   endeavor to buy  and work it for   what  there  is  in   it.  While   a  railway   is   essential   to   the  complete  development of the   district  there is no good reason why active development  work  should   not   be   continued until  a railway  is   constructed.  A majority of the claims require  to be  worked for some time before they can  become shipping uiines."  Mr. Hall after visiting Butte intends  returning to the district in order to  further look into one or two properties  which  have  favorably impressed him.  MINING NOTES.  There was considerable excitement  in the early part of the week because  of a report that the ore body had been  struck on the Sunset. Upon inquiry it  was found that the report was in error.  The tunnel, however, is now through  the porphyry, and the rock which is  being taken out carries gold and copper. Manager Macfarlane does not  expect to strike the regular ore vein  until the tunnel is in about 190 feet.  It is now in 160 feet.  The assessment work has been completed on the lyady of the L,ake. This  claim adjoins the Rhoderick Dim in  Ivong Eake camp, and is owned by C.  ,Iy. Thoraet, and Messrs Wentworth,  Britefelder & Gormand of Spokane.  Six men are  going  to  work  on   the  Bullion group in Crown Point camp.  OHN   A.   CORYELL,   a.m., b.c.a.  Provincial Land Surveyor and Draughtsman.

The epidemic is here in  its mildest  form,  but still some of the  miners who have been through the excitement   of   several  hew  camps   are  figuring the cost and guaging the dist-  a.nce  to  this eldorado beyond theland  of the midnight sun.    The reports from  Clondyke would be laughed at  were it  not for  the  fact that they are accompanied  by the gold.    As* high as $800  has been secured from a pan of gravel,  and  the  placer  fields appear to be inexhaustible.    Clondyke is in Canadian  territory and is reached by the  Yukon  river  by steamer or across the mountains  from  Dyea.    Those   leaving  for  that  district now will probably reach  there  just as winter sets in, and they  will be compelled to wait for spring before they can go prospecting. Although  there is considerable discussion regarding the advisability of doing   so, it  is  not probable that any will leave Boundary Creek for this gold field, to which  distance has lent enchantment, because  any  that  are  in a position to go have  valuable property here which may give  surer if not quicker returns than  anything in Clondyke.  If the people would consider the Clondyke situation soberly they would come  to  the  conclusion  that the   history of  other mining camps will  repeat itself  here.,   A few will strike it rich   while  the great majority will meet with discouragement   and  hardship.    Anyone  contemplating   a    trip    to    Clondyke  should   also remember that the district  is different from other  mining  camps  where there has been great excitement  because it is an expensive matter getting in and out.    The  wise  man  will  not throw   up  a  comparatively "sure  thing" in Boundary Creek to endure the  hardship  of  a   trip   to Clondyke   that  will probably end disastrously.    A letter received from the district  contains  the following interesting description:  "The excitement on the river is indescribable, and the output of the new  district almost beyond belief. Men  who had nothing last fall are worth a  fortune now. One man has worked  forty square feet of his claim and is  going out with $40,000 in dust. One-  quarter of claims are now selling at  from $15,000 to $50,000. The estimate  of the district given is thirteen miles,  with an. average value of $300,000.to  the claim, in which some are valued as  high as $1,000,000 each. At Dawson  sacks of dust are thrown under the  counter for safe keeping-. Some of the  stories are so fabulous that I am afraid  to repeat them for fear of being suspected of the infection. Iyabor is $15 a  ���da}' with board, with 100 da3rs' work  guaranteed, so you can imagine how  difficult it is to hold employes."  ORES ADMITTED FREE.  The   dominion  g-overnment   are evidently seeking to  give  every  encouragement to   those   who  are anxious to  erect   smelters   in   the province for the  treatment  of   B.   C. ores.    The lye Roi  company claimed  that their strong-est  reason for   erecting-   their   smelter   at  jNTorthport on  the   American   side   was  that   it was impossible to secure fluxes  on the Canadian side.  Senator Turner,  who interviewed the dominion government   at   Ottawa, teleg-raphed   to   the  company     that    free   admission   will  be   granted   into   Canada   for    coke,  ores of  all kinds, and also all kinds of  smelting machinery. Whether' the  government will go a step further and  levy an export duty on ores going out  of Canada has not yet been made public. If Boundary Creek district is to  be dependent upon an. American line  for railway connection then the residents here would rather not see an export duty levied, as there would be less  inducement to build a road from the  American side if the ores to be shipped over the line are to be subjected to  a tax in the shape of ah export duty.  A Lodge Room and Hall.  - Messrs. Rendell & Co.  have decided  to furnish the upper flat of their building for the accommodation of the  different fraternal societies in Greenwood,  and also for holding public  meetings.  Heretofore the only place where public  meetings could  be called  was  in  the  building kindly given by Mr. Wood for  a   schoolroom.    Rendell  &  Co.'s   hall  being centrally located and being sufficiently-commodious is well adapted for  a   lodgeroom  or for  public  meetings.  It  is  understood  that the school trustees are  negotiating  with  Mr.   Wood  for the,pur chase of the schoolroom,   as  the building is. suitable for school purposes.      The purchase  or   leasing   of  this building- will remove the necessity  for erecting a  schoolhouse  during the  vacation. '  Another Railway Rumor.  The latest railway news furnished to  encourage the people . of Boundary  Creek is to the effect that a special session of the provincial legislature is to  be called at an early date for the purpose of voting ah appropriation to the  C.P.R. to build a railway from Penticton into this district. The provincial  government are now in correspondence  with the Dominion government seeking to secure a promise that the subsidy which is to be voted by the Provincial legislature will be supplemented  by assistance from the Dominion government. As we are not in the confidence of the provincial government we '  cannot vouch for the accuracy of the  report, and until more definite information is secured it is premature to  say anything about such an undertaking.        .. .  A Wife's Appeal.  C. H. Scott's invalid wife and little  children would like to hear from, him.  Should anyone know his address will  they please communicate it to us, as we  are sadly in need of his assistance.  Other papers would do a kindly act by  copying this, and allowing me to thank  them and remain ever indebted.  Mrs. C. H. Scott,  Atchinson, Atchinson Gountv, Kansas,  U.  S. A. ;.     "���      .  The Midway Advance believes the C.  H. Scott referred to was at one time a  resident of Kelowna. Anyone knowing his present address should inform  his wife.  The Greenwood Hospital.  A gentleman who recently left the  Greenwood hospital speaks in the  highest terms of that institution. He  was a patient in the- Jubilee hospital  some time ago, and has no hesitation  in saying- that a patient receives better  care and treatment in the local hospital. Dr. Jakes paid him every attention, as did also the nurse in attendance. Greenwood hospital is a credit  to the district and should receive every  encouragement. -  A.

CORBIN  TQ  BUILD.  Mr. Corbin is going to build his road  "west from Northport this year, if reports from Spokane are reliable. It is  .given out on good authority that Mr.  Corbin's engineers will be in the field  in a few days to begin the preliminary  steps towards building the road. It is  believed that the road will be constructed as far   as  Pierre's lake  this  ������������..������������       \  . ' ������       ��� .  ���    .-.,"     : ���  year, but the work will be continued  next year. It is intended to start from  Northport and cross the Columbia  river on the new railroad bridge which  is being built for the Red Mountain  road. Pierre's lake.is about half way  between the boundary line and North-  port. It is Mr. Corbin's intention to  reach Dtireka and then on to the Boundary district. Unless Mr. Heinze or  the V. V. & D. people think more of  building railways arid less about subsidies they will find that Mr. Corbin  will secure the trade of this district before they are ready to begin the work  of construction.  THE   OKANAGAN   MINE.  The Okanagan mine, which is  situated on Okanagan L<ake about one-half  mile from Penticton, will  be  operated  shortly   and   the   ore   shipped  to  the  Everett smelter.    The -"mine  is  owned  by  Messrs. Robert Wood, Daniel Rab-  bitt, Clement Vashar and Thos. ��� Ellis.  The owners had a riieeting at  Penticton on Saturday last when they decided  to operate the mine.    The property will '  be transferred to  a  company  already  incorporated, the owners to take shares  in the company.    They have secured a  ,through rate of $5.50 from the C. P. R.  company from Penticton to the Everett  smelter,   and  at this  rate the owners  are confident that the ore is sufficiently  rich to make shipping profitable. There  are at present three or four carloads of  ore on the dump which will be shipped  immediately,   and   the   company  will  continue shipping as fast as mined.   A  60-foot shaft has already been sunk on  the  property  and  a tunnel run a distance of forty feet. There is about four  ileet of ore on the bottom of the tunnel,  assays on which have given $28 to the  Ion.    It  is  hoped  that the company's  undertaking will prove  successful,   as  shipping mines will mean much for the  district.  T. T. D.'C.'Y. K. Club.  , The young ladies of Greenwood have  organized a T. T. D. C, Y. K. society.  What these initials represent is only  known to members of the club. Sufficient has been learned about the organization however to state that the objects  of the society look towards mutual improvement and entertainment. Books  for a library are to be secured, also a  croquet set and other forms of amusement. The first meeting of the society  was held at the residence of Mrs. Fisher  on Wednesday last, when the following officers were elected : President,  Miss Maud Butler; treasurer, Miss  Dorothy Fisher ; librarian, Miss Julia  Fisher.  At the first meeting refreshments  were served and a very pleasant afternoon was spent. The club is evidently  not afraid of elections, for one of its,  by-laws is to the effect that officers are  to be elected monthly. The club meets  -every Wednesday, the meetings to be  held at the houses of the members.
