Boundary Creek's Le Roi���A Claim with a Won;  derfuT Showing ��� Nine   Ledges   of   High  Gjade Ore ��� The Company's Work.  ��Sfii^E ventured to predict in the issue of The Times  of October 10th of last year that within 18  months from that:date the Golden Crown  would be worth many times the price then  asked by the owner for the property. But half  the time mentioned has elapsed and we have  the satisfaction of seeing that the prediction  has been literally and fully fulfilled. Although  in no sense can the Golden Crown yet be  termed a mine, the work as carried out up to  the present time by the Brandon & Golden  Crown Mining Co., under the capable management of Mr. G. H. Collins, the managing director, and Mr.  W. J. Porter, the superintendent, has been of so eminently  encouraging a character that it would certainly be difficult  to find a prospect, either in Boundary Greek or indeed in  any other camp in British Columbia, the equal of the company's property in Wellington camp. This, we are willing  to concede, is a sufficiently broad statement, but it is based  upon showings that are exceptionally promising enough to  warrant enthusiasm expressed in even more extravagant  ��� terms. . . '.   v,- ���  On Monday a representative of The Times had the pleasure of accompanying Mr. Collins on a  visit  to  the  Golden  Crown.    After  a  delightful ride���for the rain had laid the  dust and a breeze from  the  north  moderated  the  temperature to a comfortable degree of  coolness���the  unmistake-  able sound of picks striking rock gave evidence (writes our  representative) that we were approaching  our destination.  Soon we came to a place where a long open  cut  had  been  made, Mr. Collins explaining that here they had decided to  look for the Winnipeg lead, which had been uncovered only  a short time before higher up.    As we came up  the  miner  rested from his work to jubilatingly announce that he " had  just struck it.    Sure enough, conspicuous  from  the brown  dirt was a solid mass of scintillating pyrrhotite ore���a sight  .which Mr. Collins viewed with   much  satisfaction.    It was  for  this  Winnipeg  ledge  that Billy Porter,   the  original  owner of the claim, searched without success for so long a  time, and it is quite certain that had he found it previous to  the purchase of the property by the present owners the comparatively low price he  received  would  not  have  tempted  him to part with his property.    In the first  hole  where the  Winnipeg-ledge is uncovered the ore body is fully   five  feet  wide and some astonishingly high assays have been obtained therefrom.  The writer was next taken to various shafts and open  cuts whereby in all nine distinct and parallel leads had  been opened. The ore is materially the same in each lead���  auriferous pyrrotite and copper pyrites, with a quartz  gangue. This ore assays from $50 to as high as $600, some  of the pyrrhotite being extraordinarily rich though doubtless the more permanent and unvariable values will be  found with increased depth when, as there is already evidence to show, the sulphides disappear and the ore becomes  more silicious. For this assumption the analogous case of  the I^e Roi mine at Rossland may be not inaptly quoted.  The principal work now being prosecuted upon the Golden  Crown is centred in a prospect tunnel which is being driven  so as to cut five leads, the existence  whereof  surface  work  has indicated. On Monday the tunnel had reached a distance of 110 feet, and it was estimated the men were working within a few feet of one of the leads which it was aimed  to cut; at any rate the rock^as is often the case when  forming the wall of an ore body���in the tunnel at this distance is intensely hard, and consequently for the last few  days the company's blacksmith has had a busy time of it  keeping up with the demand for newly-sharpened drills. A  man who works from 5 or 6 in the morning till 11 at night  at his anvil verily earns his pay, however liberal it may be.  It must hot be omitted to mention, by-the-way, that when  the tunnel was in about 70 feet a blind lead of very fine ore  was struck, the assays being' quite up to the high grade  average value of the products of the Golden Crown.  And how something of the Company itself : It  is  hardly  necessary to dwell upon a fact so well known as the business  abilities of the gentlemen forming the  directorate board of  the. Brandon & Golden  Crown  Mining  Co.    Indeed^ many  have served the country in such high  positions of trust-and  responsibility   that   other  recommendations  are   entirely '  superfluous.    Nevertheless mining is a business in exactly  the same sense as any commercial  enterprise,.; and  it is a  point worth noting that no matter  how  intrinsically valuable a property may be, no matter how rich the ore or how  large the vein, if business methods are hot employed, if the  management is not composed of honest and, capable  men,  the shareholders will suffer,  because  the, best results' will  not be obtained from the mine.    From a visit to the Golden  Crown one is at.once assured that  business  men  in  every  sense of the words have the direction of affairs.   The buildings are substantial, comfortable  and  good ; the.''men  are  well housed, and let anyone go and enjoy  the  privilege  of  sitting down to dinner with them testify how well fed ; the  company's miners and employes are as fine a set of men as  one could wish to meet���in fact the company are- to be congratulated in securing the services  of  such  men  as  Mon-'  aghan, once superintendent of  the  Poorman   (Idaho),   and  I^ynch, one of the successful team in recent drilling-contests.  Moreover we have the best authority for stating every cent  of money  subscribed  by  shareholders  is  legitimately  expended in development work.    None of the  company's  officers receive huge  salaries,   and  economy���-not  parsimony,  however���-is the principle animating the directorate.  Hence  shareholders have the satisfaction  of  knowing  that  their  money is not being fraudulently spent nor  going  into   the  pockets of unscrupulous company promoters.   ;  The programme devised for the development of the Golden  Crown is to drive the. present tunnel in 300 feet, which will  give a maximum depth of 100 feet from: the surface, and  thereby discover the most desirable spot for sinking-. When  the Winnipeg ledge has been uncovered, a shaft is to be  sunk to a depth of 300 or 400 feet, and the company are now  arranging- for the purchase of an air-compressor of five-drill  capacity, although for a time only two drills will be utilized. Wheu this work is completed the question will be  proved beyond doubt whether the Golden Crown is as wonderful and as promising a property as the surface indication would seem to show. Meanwhile the people of Boundary Creek have the liveliest faith in the future of the claim,  and the first issue of shares at 10c, limited to  75,000,   were  sold within a few days ; at 15c. the demand is still great.  The Brandon & Golden Crown Mining Co. are also devel-'  oping" the Calumet, a claim north of the Winnipeg, 600 by  1,500 ft. When the owners of the Calumet located the claim  they intended it should join the Golden Crown ; but through  an error in measurement the fraction was left open, which  gave Mr. Mcintosh his fortunate opportunity. The Calumet has the same fine showing" of pyrrhotite and the work  so far done thereon has been most encouraging.  :M  /  S��MBiSiB^^  ����{����!�� SHEER!  ��a��jj  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  r TMtM.WtJ^/JMM'^JgeWCHajgJlWBJMWUilt^^WMrSTfgCTr  AN   IMPORTANT   DEAL.  If the  influx of expert mining men  and the representatives  of capital is  any  criterion of the opinion   held regarding the future  of  a mining  district, the citizens of Greenwood should  not feel  despondent  over  any  disappointing railway news.    Probably this  ...   week f urntshed a larger quota of visitors than did any other since Boundary  Creek   became   known   as   a   mining  district.    Nearly   every   day's   stages  brought one or more prominent mining  men, whose object is to acquire prop-  orty for themselves or their principals.;  Such experienced mining men; as  Mr.  Eancaster Hobbs,   of the  Hall   Mines  Exploration  company,   Dr. Powell   of  Victoria,  and Mr.  A. H.   Woodhouse,  oach   representing,.-an ��� English   sy'ndi-  .���.ate, .^ do      not    spend    time      in    a  '"���'district unless they feel assured that it  lias a future before it. Deals are being  negotiated, and one which will be'.sure  to  bring considerable capital into the  district has been closed.  Mr. Woodhouse, who is a mining ex-  cpert of long experience and who .'represents;' an English syndicate, has closed  ���.with Mr.   E.  A.  Bielenburg an agreement by which his syndicate are to develop and.secure an interest in the Anaconda   group   of   claim's   located   in  Deadwood  camp.    They   are  situated  -   about -three and one-half  miles' from  Greenwood on the west slope of Boundary  Creek.    The   group   includes   the  Anaconda,   Kootenay    and   Columbia  ���claims.    While the terms of the agree-"  . -.:lent will not"be made public for some  lime,;,; -it   is   learned   from   a   reliable  .source that the-syndicate secures a half  interest  in this  very promising group,  1.>y ��� making a large  cash payment  to  Mr. Bielenburg   and by  completing a  stipulated    amount     of    development  work, one condition being that the syndicate must begin active and continuous work on the property as soon as the  papers are signed, and expend at least  $1,000 each month until the stipulated  amount of work is completed, when, if  the  company  considers   the   property  justifies the expenditure a further payment is made to Mr. Bielenburg.  This arrangement should not only be  i very advantag-eous one for Mr. Biel-  onburg- but for the whole district, as it  secures the expenditure of considerable  money,. and, what is /'more important,  -.���nsures the development of .promising  -property in the district.  The Anacondd group is favor ably  located. The claims are immediately  north of the Great Hope and Marguerite and northeast of the Sunset and  the Mother lode. The G. A. R. claim  -. if the Boundary Creek Mining and  Milling- company adjoins the Anaconda. The claims were located by  Mr. Bielenburg- some two years ag*o,  :i.nd he expended about $750 in development work, with the result that on the  Anaconda an enormous vein of copper  - -re has been uncovered, being- over 100  feet in width and running the whole  length of the claim -1500 feet. The  various openings on the vein have been  '.horoug-hly tested, an average assay  from the whole being more than satisfactory.  On the Kootenay are three distinct  bodies of sulphides from three to four  feet wide and assaying- from $2.06 to  .-\37.50. On the Columbia onl}' one  shoot has been uncovered, leaving exposed about four feet of solid sulphides,  one assay going $10.55.  The work to  be undertaken by the  syndicate  will  consist  chiefly of tunnelling on the Anaconda and Kootenay'  and sinking on the Columbia.  ^S  j  A  e  ��������� ,-���  a  SPORTING   GOODS.  i  | Boxing Gloves,  I Lacrosse Sticks,  Sit-     Sit.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  THE   LIEUTENANT-GOVERNORSHIP  Certain   provincial conservative papers  have   been   engaged   in   the   unprofitable   though interesting work of  selecting- -for the  I/aurier government  a  lieutenant-governor for British Columbia.    Several prominent politicians  have been chosen b}r these organs, but  they never selected the gentleman who  has the first claim to the position. The  reason for this oversight is not hard to  find.   ;Mr. William Templeman, of the  Victoria Times, fought for the liberal  party in  British Columbia when there  were scarcely a dozen to support him.  He  continued to   fight,  however,  and  although he met with defeat, he had  the satisfaction of seeing the principles  which he so warmly espoused triumph,  and to see his political friends in the  province profit through his efforts.'..-, In  political battles it often  happens that  the   defeated   ones   in   the   victorious  party are those who most deserve success, and so long as the public interest  is not sacrificed we hold that, it is the  duty of the successful party  to honor  those who have honorably fought for  the right. ! ���  It would not be in the public interest,  and therefof e not in the interests of  the liberal party, for the dominion  government to appoint as lieutenant-  governor of ���this province any political  friend whose only hope for appointment is one of political expediency.  Mr. Templeman is' a representative  British Columbian, a gentleman . who  will dignify the office, whose character  is above reproach, and whose years of  actual service are well worthy of recognition. If the government will only  recognize the fact that it is expedient  to do what is right, then Mr. William  Templeman , will be the next lieutenant-governor of British Columbia.  PROVINCIAL  MINERALOGIST.  After  spending- over  two  weeks  in  examining  the  properties    in   all   the  camps in Boundary Creek district Mr.  W. A. Carlyle, the provincial mineralogist,  left  on  Wednesday   for Grand  Forks,   where   he^ will  remain   a  few  days to examine the properties in that  vicinity.    During  his  visit  here   Mr.  Carlyle secured a mass of valuable information  regarding the district  and  its different camps.    His unassuming  wajrs and gentlemanly bearing won for  Mr. Carlyle the admiration and respect  of miners and'mine owners  in the district.    His   work  was made easier by  the  fact  that   there were  many   who  knew   the   different   camps    that volunteered    to   show   him   around.    Mr.  Cartyle is very properly guarded in his  expressions regarding mining districts,  but it is difficult even for  a provincial  mineralogist to visit Boundary Creek  and not get enthusiastic.    It is almost  safe   to  presume that  his report will  prove a splendid advertisement for the  district.      Mr.  Carljde g-oes directly to  Rossland   from Kettle  river   and will  spend   some    weeks   in   the  wilds   of  the L-ardo district.    He  then   proceeds  to Cariboo,  g-oing in towards the Ora-  ineca, and   working- out towards Ashcroft.     He does not expect to return to  the coast before December.  Mr. W.. J. Armstrong, of Vernon, has  been spending the week in the district.  Rossland.  Greenwood.  LIMITED   :LIABILITY.  (Hedf (Brfdfe <xnh (|titnitt<$ (^tofttts,  Financial & Insurance Agents  GEO.

The residents of the town were  of course present, and these were augmented by a large number from Greenwood, Midway, and from the surrounding district. The sports were well  contested, and the chief interest centered in the drilling contest and the  baseball match. The committee in  charge was composed of the following  gentlemen : F. J. Miller, chairman;  W. M. Law, J. W. Eind, G. H. Ford,  Eewis Hind.  HORSE   RACES.  At 10 a. m. the horse racing began.  The first race was a half-mile dash,  open to all comers. There were three  entries : E. "Stone's Midget, E-Brewster's Briney, and J. K. H ll's ,Pat.  Midget, an Okanagoii horse, ,,won;'easily,-Pat'being second..  There were four entries ih the saddle   race':     McClung-'s   Star,' Stack's  Mack,  Eady  Brewster's .Briney,  and King-'s  Briney won easily, Mack  King.  being second, and Star third.  McClung  Mrs. Winters and Mrs  were the onlyvcontestants in the ladies'  saddle race. Mrs. Winters rode Briney,  while Mrs. McClung had charge of the  snug-ly built bay which carried her tb  victory at Greenwood. Briney appeared  to be the faster horse, but the winning  post was reached before he g-ot down to  work, and consequently the race went  to Mrs. McClung.     '  obaseball match.  Lovers of America's national game  -witnessed a well played match in the  afternoon, when the Greenwood and  Anaconda  teanis crossed bats  on  the  latter's grounds.  Considering the fact  that both teams have had but little  practice there were but few errors, and  excellent ball was played during the  five inniiig-s. Mr. J, W. Eind made an  impartial referee.  Greenwood won the toss and went to  bat. Coryell, who pitched for the Anaconda team, was rather unsteacby in.  the first inning and consequently the  Greenwood team made four runs, Campbell bringing- the men in with a hit  that sent the ball over the trees at the  lower end of the field. Mitchell, who  was behind the bat, plajred a careful  game for Anaconda throughout the  entire match.  When An aconda went to bat Medill,  who was in the pitcher's box, -threw.a  swift ball .which was difficult to find,  and consequentry only one of the Anaconda players reached first base. M.  E. Miller, catcher for the Greenwood'  team, played an excellent ..game, free  from errors; and to him and to the  pitcher must a great deal of credit be  tnven for winning-, the match.  Greenwood secured five runs in the  second inning, and Anaconda returned  the compliment by piling- up the same  number. In the third Greenwood  secured four and Anaconda one. Then  Coiwell g-ot down to work and two successive whitewashes was the result.  Greenwood returned the compliment in  the fourth inning; but in the fifth Medill, who has but little training, failed  to pitch as stead iUr as in the first inning's, and consequently Anaconda  secured four runs, when the scoring-  was stopped by a well manipulated  double play.    The score stood thirteen  to ten, in favor of Greenwood.  Below are the teams :  GREENWOOD.  ANACONDA.  Miller, M. E.,  '..C.":-:.  Mitchell.  Medill,        .....':  Sterrett,  2ndb.  Coryell.

While the finale of the drilling contest was anything but satisfactory the  work of the first team was one of the  prettiest exhibitions and well worth  going miles to see. Dennis Clune and  Jack Sullivan, two of the miners in the  Sunset mine, drilled together for fifteen minutes without a hitch, without  a mishit and without any delay to mar  the uniformity of their work. The  drills were changed without the striker  having to wait a fraction of a second,  and the men changed from drilling to  turning without any noticeable loss of  time. The drills worked fairly well,  but a number of them proved unequal  to the test of piercing the hard granite  through which they were being, forced.  In the: last minute the drill broke square  off,'-arid- it was impossible,to force the  piece of steel into the rock. The men  were loudly applauded, however, when  it became known that iirfif teen minutes  they had drilled 31j^ inches. Considering the fact that the drills were not.  the best and that the rock was a hard  one the work of Clune and Sullivan  was by far the best yet witnessed in  Boundary Creek .district.  J. Hoffstetter and McDowell were  their opponents. Unfortunately they  had not drilled together before and  had only entered to make a match.  They made good headway for the first  three minutes although Hoffstetter had  missed the drill several times. Then  his excitement the hammer missed ���  and   struck  Mc-  full force.    A big  m  the   drill  altogether  Dowell's wrist with  piece of flesh was torn from the wrist,  which bled profusely. The contest had  to be abandoned, and Dr. Jakes attended to the wounded man. It will be  some time before McDowell is able to  use his arm.  TUG-OF-WAR. ' -. ���     .        v  Anaconda boasts of her strong men,  but their endurance never had a seyerer  test than the tug-of-war. Greenwood  had: no, team ready, but rather than,  have no contest ten volunteers were  secured, and for seven minutes they  kept the Anaconda strongmen tugging  and straining to keep the slight advantage they had secured. When time  was called the ribbon was a little over  two inches on the Anaconda's side of  the line.    The teams were as follows :  Greenwood���A.  McKenzie,   captain;  D. Biwant, anchor; F. Shonquist, A.  McDonald, E. Shonquist, Smith, J.  Hoffstetter, M.E. Miller, Franzen, S.  Emerson, J. Dick.  Anaconda���F. J. Miller, captain; N.  Tholl (anchor), V. Swanson, P. Jack-  man, J.

[SPECIAL    CORRESPONDENCE.] \  There has been considerable activity  in mining circles at Camp McKinney  during the past week. Development  work on different properties has given  good results and owners are therefore  cheerful.  Among the visitors to the , camp during the week were A. Y. Woodhouse,  the well known mining expert, and  Mr. Powys, of Nelson. They were accompanied, by Mr. C. W. H. Sansom,  who showed them different properties  in the camp. They appeared to be extremely well satisfied with what they  saw, and as they represent a wealthy  syndicate it will not be surprising if a  big deal is consummated shortly.  Major Megraw, of the Minnehaha  Co., is among the satisfied mining men  of the camp. The Big Bug, which his  company has bonded, has shown up  well through development work. A  four-foot ledge of high value has been  uncovered and the richness increases  as depth is attained.  The Ee Roi and the War Eagle, two  smelter propositions owned by J. Cope-  land, are., promising-, properties which  are likely to be bonded in the near  future.  Mr. Booth is pushing development  work on the Victoria and the. results  are extremely satisfactory.  The Cariboo Mining- Co. have their  new compressor plant erected and the  large new boiler will be placed in position in a few days. As soon as this is  done the company will immediately begin to sink below the 200-foot level.  0    Kimberly Camp.  W.   McCurragh and  partners  came  down from Kimberly camp  on   Saturday, after spending two  months doing  assessment work  and  locating   claims  there.  McCurracrh's  cognomen  is  strong- evidence of his nationality, but  if further proof was required it is to be  found in the names which have been  given to the promising claims located,  namely, the Wallace, the Bruce, Middlesex and Forest City. The assessment work has been completed on the  Caledonia, Thistle and HigTiland  Chief. The assessment work has demonstrated that the low gxade surface  ores of Kimberly camp increase in  richness as depth is attained. There  is no heather on the Caledonia, Thistle, and Highland Chief, but there are  strong ore bodies on all of them.  JEER. HOTEL  Greenwood City, Boundary Creek, B,C,  Sit.  ft?  Sis..

SATURDAY, JUI/Y .3, .1897.  THE   RAILWAY MUDDLE.  The past week has given the people  of British Columbia an opportunity to  calmly consider the railwayf arce which  was .being- played at Ottawa,  and consequently they are asking for a clearer  interpretation of some of the acts. The  daily papers  which  have correspondents at Ottawa on Thursday, June 11,  published despatches to the effect that  on the day previous there was a meeting of the cabinet, and the government  then decided to grant no aid to the Co-(  lumbia"& Western road.    The day following the despatches told of the row  in  the  railway committee and. of Dr.  Millies'������������ unholy  bargain which  he refused to stand by. Whether Mr. Heinze  or his associates were instrumental in  bringing about the failure in the negotiations between his company and the  representatives of the Victoria,   Vancouver & pastern railway is  impossible  to ascertain,  but the-result of the  failure   should   be   and   no   doubt   is  entirely   satisfactory   to  Mr.    Heinze.  In the past the general public were of  the  opinion   that the  shrewd smelter  man   had.    received    sufficient   favors  from the provincial government ;  now  the public are execrating his rivals and  urging that he be granted further considerations.    While there is strong circumstantial   evidence  that Dr. Milne  and his associate lobbyists have played  the dog in the manger part of the farce  to  perfection there   is  equally strong  proof that the leading man in the show  has acted the  part of the "injured innocent" . with . a realism, that has  deceived his audience.  .From his performances, it is not difficult to   outline Mr. . Heinze's future  plan of action.    Since he has a pliable  provincial government at his back he  'does'not consider time the essence of  anj^ contract he may have made.   During- the last session   of the provincial  legislature his company were granted  a cash subsidy for'one  hundred miles  of railway with   the    condition    that  should   they- accept  this subsidy they  must   relinquish   their   right to  their  land grant for the same distance.    At  the next session of the legislature Mr.  Heinze or his representative will probably be a constant visitor to the lobby  and a most oblig-ing host in the Driard.  He  will   probably  seek   to secure   the  right to the  full land grant as well as  to   the cash    subsidy, and   if   he   can  keep the present tide of public opinion  in the proper direction he will no doubt  accomplish his purpose. Then he will  migrate to Ottawa and there seek a  Dominion subsidy.  We cannot blame the people for  severely criticizing the conduct of those  who attempted to enrich themselves by  making a raid on the dominion exchequer, but we are strongly of the  opinion that because the public feel in  a mood to denounce one company they  should not go to the other extreme and  worship Mr. Heinze. It would be more  consistent and more in the public interest if Mr. Heinze were plainly told  that the representatives of the people  have already granted him large inducements to build the road; that, notwithstanding his failure at Ottawa,  -Dublic interests demanded that he  should live up to his promises, and  that unless.he' did so those who gave  might also take away. *   ,  .   '  When Mr. Heinze first approached  the provincial legislature he was more  moderate in his demands than he is to- ���*  da3r. He asked only a charter; he  would build the road if he secured a  a charter. The charter was granted  him. A short time afterwards he gave  a champagne supper at the Driard.  The lieutenant-governor, members of  the government and a few members of  parliament were present. The supper  was followed by an application for a  land grant. If he received a land grant  he stated that he would surely, build  the road. The legislature gave him a  grant of 20,000 acres a mile, but the'  'members thought at that time that this  was such a liberal donation to a rail-  wa'y company that they imposed a condition that the company should within  six months from the passage of the act  deposit with the provincial government  "a security of $50,000 that the road shall  be built within four years from the  passae-e of the act.  This year the same legislature  granted $4,000 per mile for one hundred  miles conditional upon bona fide and  continuous construction being commenced and carried on within fifteen  months from the passage of the act.  To recapitulate: Mr. Heinze was at  first satisfied with a bare charter, but  he got a land grant and a cash subsidy. It cannot therefore be considered  harsh treatment if he were plainly told  by the public that he foas already received sufficient inducement to build  the road, and unless he does so the  urgent necessity for the opening out of  the district through railway connection demands that he should no longer  remain a barrier in the way.  Looking at the railway question from  a proper point of view, one is forced  to the conclusion that Heinze has  already*- secured more than he at first  demanded, and more than he had at  first expected, and had not the craving  for governmental favors grown to an.  abnormal extent he could' have made  arrangements to begin the construction of the Trail-Penticton road long  ere this.

A  meeting of ���the executive was held on  Monday afternoon in Russell & Co.'s  store. The finance committee reported  that the residents of Greenwood had  contributed liberally towards securing  ladders, etc. The company have now  a spliced ladder 32 feet long, one ladder 24 feet long, and a 16-foot roof ladder ; also two axes, a pull-down hook,  24 buckets and a huge triangle for giving the alarm. The triangle will be  placed in position at the pump house,  hear .-Rendell & Co.'s store, and it is  guaranteed to'arouse the most lethargic volunteer.

Wi  CAPTAIN  ADAMS'   RETURN.  Capt. R. C. Adams, of the Midway  Townsite company, reached Greenwood  on Wednesday after spending several  weeks among his company's mines in  Kootenay. Previous to his visit to  Kootenay he spent about four months  in "London where, as has already been  reported, he succeeded in organizing, a  company of influential men for the  purpose of working his many mining  properties in this province. The town-  site of Midway was not included in the  deal but remains under the control,of  the Midway Townsite company.,,  In conversation with a Times representative-Gaptain Adams stated that in  Ivon.don, Montreal, Chicago and other  cities he was surprised to find, so niuch  interest taken in Boundary Creek district. Mining capitalists appeared to  have a surfeit of Kootenay, and all  were turning their attention here.  Greenwood .also appeared to be well  known, on the outside, .and was nearly  always taken as the central point from  which 5other places in the district were  measured. In England, the financial  men were anxious to secure working  bonds1 on properties but would not care  to buy outright. If the owners of property were willing- to assume some risk  they evince a willingness to put trp the  money for development.        /  !  Speaking ��� of railway enterprises,  Captain Adams stated that he in company with others had an interview  with Mr. Heinze in Montreal, and at  that time the latter was almost certain^  of securing the dominion government  subsidy. When in Spokane Captain  Adams waited upon Mr. D. C. Corbin,  and found that he evinced a strong interest in Boundary Creek district and  the reservation. Mr. Corbin appears  to be strongly impressed with the necessity for a railway to open put the  reservation and this district. He told  Captain Adams that he intended to,  come in here about the middle of July  and view the situation for himself. His  conversation would lead one to believe  that he has no intention of allowing  another company to have a railway  running in here before he builds his  own.;  Captain Adams could not say whether  much work would be done this summer  on the properties in Boundary in which  his company is interested.  The Midway Townsite company intend constructing a wagon road to connect Midway with Grand Prairie.  LOCAL  NOTES.  "Pat" Dillon, the well known Rossland mining man, is again visiting  Boundary Creek.  Horses and stock on the ranges are  suffering severely from flies, which are  more numerous this year than usual.  Rev. H.

There is considerable excitement in  the vicinity of Rock Creek over the  discovery of free gold on Meyer's creek,  just across the international boundary  line. Several claims have been loccited  there, and all carry very coarse free  gold. '       ���'���  The O. B., one of the Boundary Creek  Mining and Milling company's claims,  is showing up well under development.  The shaft is down about j twenty feet,  there being three feet of ore in the  ledge with a strong galena showing.  ^������^��������^��������-^��������^������^���^�����(^���������^���^^���������^���aHcJ?^  T  e  'A.

A public meeting of the householders  and freeholders. and their wives was  held in the schoolroom on Saturday  for the purpose of hearing the retiring  board of trustees give an account of  their stewardship, and also to, appoint  their successors. Mr. C. Scott Galloway was voted to the chair and Mr. R.  Smailes was appointed secretary. Mr.  Smailes, the secretary of the, school  board, read the financial statement for  the year. It showed a deficit, owing  to   the   council   of  public instruction  having  singled    Greenwood   out   for  special consideration. According to  the school act the council of public instruction Has to provide the funds to  supply the public schools with' the  necessary,, furniture* but they paid a  compliment to the good financial position of the citizens of Greenwood by  allowing them to provide their own  school furniture. On ���account of the  bad,news about the railway or for some  other cogent reason, there is, notwithstanding the revenue from the school  concert * a small balance to be paid before the trustees are free from debt:  They feel confident however that they  will succeed in liquidating every indebtedness, and the council of public  instruction are consequently happy.  Vs all the retiring trustees expressed  their determination not to run for re-  election, the following gentlemen were  nominated as school trustees: I. H.  Halh3tt,jCbJR. Naden and M. J. Phelan.  There being- no further nominations  the}r were declared elected by acclamation. Before adjourning those pres-,  ent passed a unanimous vote of thanks  to Mr. Robert Wood for the great interest which he always evinced in the  school and for his many generous acts  towards it.  A Visitor From   Trail.  Sj'-dney M. Johnson, a prominent  mining man and provincial land surveyor, of Trail, B. C, was among the  many visitors who spent: this week inspecting- the properties in the different  camps surrounding Greenwood. . Mr.  Johnson is; taking a holida3>y and having* heard about the wonderful Boundary Creek district, he availed himself  of the opportunity to see the mines.  He states that there is no district in the province which is more  in the public eye than Boundary Creek.  The people of Trail-are particularly interested in the development of the district, and are bitterly disappointed  that the possibility for connecting-  themselves with Greenwood by a railway has become more remote. They  feel confident that if this district was  connected b}r rail with the Trail smelter it wonldbe mutually advantag-eous.  Mr. Johnson is delighted with his  visit, as he came here to see big and  rich showings, and he was not disappointed.   Marcus Oppenheimer, one of the  earliest pioneers of eastern Washington'and the founder of Marcus, where  he is eng-ag-ed'in business, arrived in  Greenwood this week and will remain  some time. Mr. Oppenheimer is heavily interested in Wellington camp,  being one of the principal owners in  the Brooklyn and other valuable  claims. He has several men at work  on some of his properties.      f  W.     J.    ARMSTRONG.  wgv  II  fm13?M&?rit!iit.

CORBIN'S   OPPORTUNITY.  That very ably conducted paper/ the  Rossland Miner, has pointed out that  the present railway situation has given  Mr. Corbin an opportunity of capturing- the Boundary Creek country, and  that it is not at all improbable that he  will make use of his opportunity. In  the Miner's opinion. Boundary creek  district may afteroall have a railroad  before another twelve months. The  Miner agrees with the Times in saying-,  "While an American road would not  secure to Canada as much direct trade  with the promising- camps west of us  as a road having- eastern connecf ions  through Canada, the benefit to the  Boundary and adjacent regions will be  none the less great."  Appropos of railway matters, the  secretary of state's reply to the telegram of the ciaizens of Trail will prove  interesting- though not encouraging  reading-.    The reply was as follows : -  "Your telegram containing- a copy of  the resolutions adopted by the meeting  at Trail has been received. I will lay  the matter before the priv3r council at  its first meeting, but fear that consideration of this important topic must be  delayed until next session.  [Signed] R. W. ScoTT,  Secretary of State."  MINING  NOTES.  Work is being carried on at the Yellowstone, in Greenwood camp.  Jim Marshall left last week on a visit  to the Slocan, where he is interested in  a number of prospects.  There is much excitement at present  anent the recent promising discoveries  of mineral in iDureka camp.  The final assessment to entitle the  owners to a crown grant is being done  upon the New York, in G-reenwood  camp. The property has also been  surveyed.  Thomas Walsh has had several men  at work in the Mammoth and Standard  claims in BHiott camp. Both properties have shown up weil, there being  on each well defined ledges of rich ore.  Mr. Walsh has also completed the assessment work oil the Whale, a prom>  ising claim located on Pass creek.  Joe Taylor has two men at work on  the California in Wellington camp.  The claim has an enormous showing of  copper ore, some of which assays as  high as 20 per cent, in copper.  Mr. W. F. I/mith, representing the  Parrott Mining company, has put several men to work on 'the*Minnie Moore  claim in Summit camp. Messrs. Far-  rell and Midgeon,, the Butte smelter  men, are associated with Mr. Smith in  the Parrott company.  Mr. F. W. Hankey andL,. IrvinBaldwin, of Conconelly, Wash., were among  the many visitors to Greenwood this  week. Mr. Hankey is a prominent attorney, and Mr. Baldwin is a mining  engineer whose articles to different  mining journals have attracted considerable attention to the mines of  Okanagon. Both gentlemen have  taken advantage of a Holiday to visit  the mines of Boundary Creek, of which  they have heard a great deal, and at  the same time renew their acquaintance with a number of Greenwood citizens who were at one time residents of  the Okanagon district.  Mr. Moulton-Barrett returned on  Sunday after visiting the mining  regions on the borders of Nevada and  Colorado. His experiences .were'none'  too enviable, the climate in those states  being apparently uncertain, not to say  erratic. For three days during his stay  in one camp the thermometer registered  109 in the shade, when without warning  the wind suddenly veered from the  south to the north and snow fell heavily., Southern Colorado was once a  scene of great mining activity but  owing to depreciation in the price of  silver all the mines were closed down  and deserted towns and idle stamp-  mills are now familiar features of the  landscape. Mr. Barrett was very glad  to find himself back in Greenwood.  T i,i^,��� I  T.PMTTTT    0    M���TT>nn     ?  "A  1 a  I  A  5  t  J  A  m  ���  .
