P., and Some of His  Associates Examine Their Extensive Mining  Interests in Tliis District.���Will Start Work  on tlie War Eagle and Buckliorn Claims.  Rufus Pope, M. P., J. R. Allen of  Ottawa, W. T. McDonald of Spokane,  W. F. Noble of Nelson, and P. Joyce  of Rossland, are a party of mining men  who arrived in the city on Sunday.  Mr. Pope is a prominent leader of the  Conservative party. He has been in-  teiested in Boundary Creek mines for  several years, but this is his first visit  to      the-    district. He    'was''one,'  of the��promoters of the Knob Hill and  Old Ironsides companies. Mr. Pope  and hisr associates now own the War  Eagle in Greenwood Camp and the  Buckhorn in Deadwood Camp. Both  properties were visited, and work on a  large scale will be started immediately.  Peter Joyce has been appointed superintendent of both properties. Mr. Joyce  had chatge of the Centre Star from the  time it was' a mere prospect until it  developed into a two-million-dollar  mine. W. F. Noble will have charge  of the business affairs of the two coiut  p.mie>. They will make their head-  quai tela at Greenwood. Mr. Allen is  an Ottawa capitalist who is traveling  \v ith Mr. Pope.   He is anxious to invest  C L  in Boundary Creek mining properties,  and in company with Mr. McDonald  visited several claims in the district.  The party return-to' the East today.  Mr Pope has been most successful in  connection with ' his mining ventures.  In addition to his Boundary Creek investments, he secured interests in Kootenay that turned out remarkably well.  ���������������;   '���' ���; :',';\ Fining-items.; '' '���': ���  I-"15-  ���������:������-.;  .      -'-,���: j;..' :���. ,,. ......      .���  ,..: :.���;���..... o ������ :  . Ji S. Paterspn.has jus't returned'from  the  Similkameen   country,   (says; the  Rossland   Miner),' and brings an interesting-story  of the  mining   developments, talking  place in that famed district.    He" says Copper Mountain   is   a  veritable hive of industry, hundreds of  prospectors are at work in the  vicinity  doing   assessment work  and  locating  new properties,   and  beside  the  prospectors there is a considerable, force of  miners engaged in opening up   properties recently acquired by Dr. Deeks of  Montreal;   and  others.     The Similkameen Copper, company is actively pushing  work on the Virginia and Norway.  On the Virginia   very   little  work  will  be  required to open up an exceedingly  valuable mine.    Mr. Paterson severely  scores the government for   its  persistent neglect of this district.    The government office at Granite Creek collects  about  $20,000  per year revenue there.  The greater portion of this   amount  ia  derived from Copper Mountain, and up  Smith k McRae  IjGopper St/    Greenwood^  to date the government has spent S300  in constructing abridge across the river  Isfo trails or roads have been built into  the district by the government. Strong  pressure is being brought to bear oh  the government to construct the wagon  road from Princeton to Keremeos, a  distance of 45 miles. This would shorten the freight haul from the C. P. R.  by 40 miles. The road can be easily  and cheaply constructed, and the government will do well to attend to the  matter at once. Mr. Paterson tells a  story about the surprising richness of  the ore on Copper Mountain, and predicts a great future for the district.  The Boundary Creek Copper Mines,  limited, is a company recently organized for the purpose of developing the  Dominion and No. 2 claims in West'  Copper camp. The officers of the company are : President, A. T. Kendrick,  Greenwood; vice-president, John W.  McRae, Ottawa; secretary, W. L. Ger-  maine, Greenwood ; directors, John A.  Finch, Spokane, Hector McRae, Rossland, Harold Selous, Nelson, and Clive  Pringle, Greenwood. The capitalization is $250,000,' divided into 1,000,000  25c. shares. The Dominion and No. 2  claims are situated about fifteen miles  from the city. They, have large surface  showings, and the ledges: give good  values ' in gold aiid copper. Two men  are now working on the properties.  The company intend putting a large  force to work shortly. D. J. McDonald,  the well-known mining man, will examine-the properties and outline the  development work.  C. D.   Porter,  B..  L.   Short   and  J.  Hamilton were among the   many   mining men who visited the district during  the week.;   Mr. Porter is ore buyer.for  the Kansas City Smelting  & Refining  company.-.  He. is; here to enquire into  the  possible  output of  the district as  soon 'as  thevrailway- is completed and  also to look after some,mining.,properties  in  which het is^��� interested. ���   Mr.  Hamilton: was in  the district several  j'ears ago.    He had charge of the work  on   the' Winnipeg  when   it was Under  bond  to Marcus Daly.   The party accompanied by Rufus Pope, M. P., J. R.  Allan, E. A. Bielenburgand J. C. Haas  visited the Eily K. mine at the head of  Pass creek oh Thursday.     They also  visited other properties in   the district.  Martin J.  Grevy,  president of   the  Lemon Gold Mining company, and A.  Paterson,  superintendent for the company, were  in  the  city from Omaha  Camp, near Camp McKinney.    Since  Mr. Grevy's previous visit to the city,  a  large  amount  of  surface  work has  been done on the Lemon and adjoining  properties owned by the company.   The  work of sinking the shaft was delayed  by   the   non-arrival, of   the   Cameron  pump, ordered some time ago.     Mr.  Grevy left for Omaha.    He will return  in. about three weeks. -  Alex. Shar'pe, who was superintendent of the Columbia & Kootenay mine  for several years, has been appointed  superintendent of the Boundary Creek  Min:ti.t,r& Milling company's properties.  Mr. Sharpe arrived in the city on Wednesday, and went out to the properties  on Thursday. He will work a large  force of men during the summer.' Work ,  will be started on the Gold Bug.  Harry Shallenberger has several  men at work on the properties of the  Greenwood Crescent company in  Skylark camp. While excavating for  a blacksmith shop the other day  another ledge was uncovered. The ore  gives very high values in gold and  silver. The Greenwood Crescent company intend doing a large amount of  work this summer.  A contract for a 40 foot shaft on the  Bujlion has been completed. The  Bullion is in Greenwood camp immediately north of the Brooklyn. The  showing is a good one. The Bullion  is owned by Randolph and A. K.  Stuart. W. G. McMynn and F. M.  Kerby.  Capt. Ralston was in the city last  week. He is developing his properties  on Eagle Mountain above Wellington  Camp. The captain has some fine  showings on his claims.  E. Thursby Pelham has returned  from a ten day trip to Republic where  he has extensive mining interests.  Jay   P.   Graves   is   in   Grand   Forks  ing after the  erection   of  the  big   ,  smelter at that point.  R. C. Johnson and party have left on  a prospecting tour up the Main Kettle  River.

The Great Hopes Gold Mining company, limited, a company which was  incorporated four or five years ago under a State of Washington charter, and  which is controlled by Peter Larson,  the well-known railway contractor,: T.  Greenough of Helena, one of the proprietors of the famous Morning- mine,  and several friends, who live in Portland and in New, York city, has decided  to i-.'.sumc work upon its properties in  the Boundary country. , Operations will  be commenced in a few, weeks. The  property is situated in Deadwood camp,  and was one of the first locations made  there. It has been worked years ago  as a free-milling- proposition. ' The ore  was reduced in an arastra, but as it  became base with depth, this method  of reduction was abandoned, and the  property shutdown to await the advent  of transportation. As facilities for  getting the ore to the smelter will soon  be lurnished by the Canadian Pacific  Rn*''vay, i��ris~thought that the present  is an opportune time to resume operations. It has been decided to change  the corporation from American to Canadian. The owners are all wealthy  men, and they no doubt in a short,time  will place the Great Hopes on the list  of shippers. Mr. Greenough will visit  the Boundary Creek country next  month, when he will lay out the work.  KETTLE   RIVER MINING   DIVISION.  RURAL HOTELS.

The claims are known as  the C. O. D. and J. I. C.      Both claims  have  strong- ledg-es of concentrating-  ore.    Assays as  high  as $29 in gold  and eight/ounces in   silver have  been  secured from the C. O. D.     Mr.  Done-  gan reports a great deal of  activity in  connection with Meyers' Creek Mining  properties.    The Crystal Butte Mining  company    have   a    saw   mill   erected  which is kept busy  sawing lumber for  the big concentrator the company are  erecting.    W. D. Glaze of Midway has  a contract for building a road from the  mill to the mine.    The Mountain  Dew  owned by Allison is looking well.     He  ran  a  tunnel 230 feet on the ore body.  The tunnel cut three chutes of pay ore.  The  ledge is  from   three  to   six  feet  wide.     Other properties  in   the camp  are being developed.

C, Ht:  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  THE GOLDEN  ON NORTH FORK KETTLE RIVER  There is a Mining Propeny of Great Promise.���  The Development Work on This and Other  Properties in the V'ciii'ty.--Law's Delays.  Now that there is a strong probability  that the litigation  which  so  seriously  retarded  the development of the Volcanic, Seattle,   and  other  North  Fork  properties,   will   be   speedily   settled,  more attention is being directed towards  the many promising mining claims   in  that camp.     Arrangements are being  made to work the Volcanic on  a large  scale.     Other properties in the immediate vicinity have been developed with  most encouraging results.    Prominent  among these  is the  Golden  Eagle,  a  claim  owned by L. S. Moulton-Barrett  of Greenwood.   Development work under the direction of Mr. Fox was vigorously  prosecuted  the winter   months,  until nOw the claim is attracting much  attention from minin'g men who appreciate a valuable property - when  they  see it.     A correspondent writes that  the Golden Eagle mine is situated on  the  southeast side of Volcanic mountain,, and has been developed to the  100-foot level, with numerous crosscuts,  drifts, and winzes.    As the  work  progressed,  the ore got richer and more  extensive with depth, until  at  the 75-  foot  level the vein filling became solid  ore, carrj'ing as high  as  20 per cent  metallic copper.   -The most interesting  and important feature of this discovery  is that the strike of the vein is almost  directly through the center of Volcanic  mountain.     The; Golden Eagle people  are now drifting along the'lead in; that  direction, and although they have gone  a considerable distance, have found no  signs of the ore chute coming to,an end;  on the contrary,  it steadily  continues  to improve.  The same writer says that theVolcauic  law-suit is chiefly responsible for the  delay that has occurred in the development of the North Fork country. But  the success that has lately attended the  development of the Golden Eagle, Las-  key, Junction City, Seattle, Pathfinder,  Diamond Hitch, and other properties  in that section, has brought about the  desired result. The owners of scores  of promising mineral claims in the  valley of the North Fork of the Kettle  River are encouraged, and have been  aroused to action by the phenomenal  success of their more enterprising  neighbors, and although the extensive  development of the Volcanic and Wolverine must be considered an important  factor in the magnitude of North Fork  mining operations, the assured mines  that exist there are sufficient to place  Volcanic camp in the very foremost  rank in the matter of ore production.  conditions are neglected is very favorable towards the dissemination of the  germs aud perpetuation of this disease.  They (hog cholera and swine plague)  are, however, preventable diseases,  therefore persons who intend engaging  in hog-i aising would benefit greatly by  becoming acquainted with the nature  of these diseases, the various ways of  propagation, and the modes of prevention."

Dear Sir :  I have recently learned since my partial recover}'-from illness of  long- duration that during the recent visit of Mr. Leonard Norris, assistant .  commissioner of Land and Works, several land cases in regard to the town  of Beaverton or the pre-emption of W. T. Thompson were tried.  I never heard of them ! ! They were never tried ! ! simple for the  reason that they never existed, Then why ? Because the title to Beaverton is perfect.  Who owns Beaverton? The trading men in Greenwood mostly !  Bankers, the townsite owners of Greenwood, your leading brokers, assa}rers,  merchants, mining men,  and citizens.  Why do thej'- own property in Beaverton ? Because they know a good  thing when they see it. That is what is building Greenwood city up so  fast, and besides they Have been on the ground and have seen it themselves.  Beaverton is the cerminus'of the West Fork branch of the Ca-nadian  Pacific Railway, there are" no other branches in that part of the county.  Why is Beaverton going to be prosperous and a large and thriving  centre ? Because it is the key to tie-entire mining district, and running  right up to; in fact right into the town, are soriie of the largest and richest  surface showings of mineral on the continent. Ask such experienced men  in these matters as Robt.; Wood, George Guess, C. Scott Galloway, J. C.  Haas, James Sutherland, C iED.

THE TWIN GATE WAT CITIES.
'." Fighting Joe." Martin dearly loves
a fiirlit.     His   rather  prominent   nost:
scents trouble from   afar.      Not  sati.--.-'■
fieri with  keeping- his colleagues, and
half   Vancouver    in   hot   water   over
Deadman   Island,   he. was   ariectod hy
the   aroma  arising-   from   the   i-outi'st
between   Columbia   and   lirand Vorks.
Fighting   "Joe"   saw   visions    of3 a
glorious   time   so   he    left     "./::■ idman
Island and Ludgate and hisde::-. friend
Carter-Cotton   and   cj-irne to. Columbia.
The attorney-general wanted no better
sjiort  than  besting- the citizens of the
lower town.    Grand Forksites   were so
elated   at   the   seizure of the furniUire
in  the Coluiiihia hotel that 111e^- went
up in a body to take the hotel   -i•.•,-.;;,- or,
-   at  "least  as uiuoh of it as e  u!-! be'eon-
•'veniently   moved.       But     Peter    Mc-
Caliurn's    scotch    blood   was  up    aud
fortified   with   his   brand new commission   from   the   Semlin government he
did   his  duty   as a. justice of the peace
and   a  loyal  citizen   03-    reading-    the
Kiot'Act- for   the   benefit-of   the mob
from Grand Forks.      Then Chas. Hay,
mayor,   appeared   upon   the scene and
informed   the   intruders  that   he   was
running- the town and   that they would
be shot down   a la mill men   Deadman
Island, unless they went down  to their
own frog- pond.     The bold front of the
Columbians    rather   disconcerted   the
people   from   Grand     Forks.        They
returned   to their homes and were preparing-  another  invasion    when    they
were    simply    terror  stricken   by  the
appearance of fig-hting- Joe.     He sized
up tlie situation in no time and decided
that  there   would   be more fun coming
to  him  if  he  allied   himself with the
Columbians.       So  Joe  took charg-e of
forces in the upper town.    He gives no
quarter and asks for none.     He is now
carrying-   the   scalps   of   one   or   two
Grand   Forks   people  on   his   belt and
more will follow.    It   is  stated   that J.
K. Johnson, the police mag-istrate will
lose his commission and several arrests
will be made.
• It is unfortunate that the people of
Greenwood are such law abiding-
citizens. We are too quiet for Joe and
consequently he does not travel this
way.
Fork road, and the.money subscribed
by the citizens of Greenwood'has beer,
judiciously spent, it is found that the.
funds available are not sufficient to
make as g-ood a road as'the importance
of the district that is to be brought into
close contact with Greenwood demands.
There is. nothing that will promote the
interests of a city more than to make
a rich mining district tributary to it.
The trade of the-West.Foi-k country is
well worth getting-. The surest way to
'sc-'-iri' the trade is .by making it con-
v, ::-e::: for prospectors and others to
reach uio district.from the city. The,
West Fork road ought to be built but
of the public funds. But as time is an
important factor in connection with its
construction, the citizens of Greenwood
subscribed liberally in order to secure
the necessary, money. More funds are
needed, and it is hoped that those who
have not subscribed will do so in order
that another rich mining district may
be made tributary to Greenwood.
A BOARD OF TRADE.
:.' is useless attempting- to carry on
the business of a large cit3' unless the
citizens appreciate their .public duties
and take an active interest in all public
matter that have a tendency to promote the city's "best interests. The
recent meeting of the Mining and
Commercial association at which important matters were discussed, was
but slimly attended. Greenwood is the
only city of any importance in the
province without a Board of Trade.
A committee has been appointed to
take active steps towards the organiz7.
ation of a Board. The success of the
committee must necessarily depend
upon the interest taken by the business
men. Twenty active aggressive business men, pushing Greeuwood to the
front and keeping her there and losing
no opportunity to promote her best interests can incalculably benefit the
city. The twenty men—yes one
hundred men—are available. All that
is required is organization and a
keener appreciation of the duties of a
loyal citizen.

A Choice T.
I!
Last Sunday morning's  fire  should
prove  a  blessing in disguise.    Everyone sympathizes  with those   who lost
heavily    but    at  the   same    time-   the
people should learn the lessons that the
experience has taught.    The Volunteer
Fire department did  good work.    The
boys  did   not shirk   their  duty and to
them   must   be  given    the    credit  for
preventing  the   fire   from   spreading.
While the  fire department   is  entitled
to every encomium it would be foolishness to lose sight of the fact that the
department   as   at  present constituted
and   the  apparatus   at' its disposal are
both inadequate to meet the conditions
in the city.    We are  strongly   opposed
to running a fire department on a cheap
John sj'steriK-   In the city there is over
©2,000,000'  worth    of     property   with
absolutely   no   protection    save    that
furnished   hy   a    few    men   who   have
volunteered their services.    The public
interests  demands   that   the    business
interests of the city should  have   more
protection.    The tire department should
be under the control of an experienced
lire   chief,   paid   to  give   his time and
attention   to   the   work  of training the
men    and    keeping   tlie    apparatus  in
shape.    Such  an  officer is a necessity.
Their more   apparatus  should  be purchased for the  department.     Another
1000 feet of hose should be secured, so
that   more   than   one  stream    can    be
used on a burning building-.
The city council should erect a fire
hall at the very earliest possible date.
Sonic of the men should sleep in the
hall. This is important. Sunday
morning the members of the volunteer
department were at their homes and
the first to reach the carts were those
who did not know the position of the | «5»
hydrant or wrenches. The result was
delay in turning on the water.
Residents and business men should
exercise greater care in connection
with their premises. Shavings, paper,
etc., are left in the most convenient
places to be ignited by a match, a
burning- cigar or cigarette. A little
more care exercised would lessen the
chance of a fire starting.
The contractors of the Columbia &
Western Railway are not now so sanguine about completing the railway to
Greenwood by September 1 as they
were a tew weeks ago. The work is
being- delayed by heavy slides in the
MacRae Pass, and it is probable that
it will be October 1 before an engine
is seen in Greenwood. The contractors
are just as anxious as the people about
having the road completed at the time
just stated. It is scarcely possible, on
account of the delays, that they will be
successful in completing the contract
by September 1.
The sting of defeat has been softened
for more than one Conservative leader
by fortunate mining investments in
British Columbia. Among them is
Rufus Pope, M.P. He is a keen politician, but he can take a lot of satisfaction out of the fact that his invest-
in Boundary Creek have turned out
well. A good big- bank account has
ever greater attractions than success
in political life.
Sir Chaki.es Hibbert Tupp'ek filled
several pages of Hansard with the res-
surrection of the Judge Spinks investigation." Sir Hibbert was sat upon at
the end of his long-worded address.
His loquacity cost the country upwards
of $2,000, as it costs money to waste
the time of parliament.

P. O. BOX 226,
Colville, Wash THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES,  A   SERIOUS    FIRE.  TWO  HOTELS  CONSUMED  The Clarendon and International Completely  Destroyed.���Luckenbel's Assay Office also  Consumed.���The Whole, City had a Narrow  Escape���Good Work ty the Volunteer Fire  Department-.  A fire which seriously threatened the  total destruction of the  business  portion of the city started  underneath   the  Clarenden hotel building at an  early  hour   on    Sunday    morning.       Nifidit  Watchman McKenzie turned , in    the  alarm at 2:30 o'clock.   At that time the  fire was  working along the walls of  the  building  and  shortly   afterwards  they broke out and the entire building  was a mass of flames.     The  volunteer  fire department assisted by others were  soon  on  the ground.     A  line of hose  was   run   from   the    hydrant    above  Government street and  a   stream of  water was kept  continuously,   on the  flames.    The  fire  had too much headway however arid was only stopped by  the vacant lot between the International arid the Arlington  hotel.     Between  the.    International    hotel     and     the  Clarendon was a small frame building  owned by "W. M. Miller and used as an  assay office by Z. C  Euckenbel.     It  was soon a mass of flames and served  as a    connecting   link   between   the  Clarendon and the International.     An  alarm  was  raised  that dynamite was  stored in the assay office and the large  crowd soon  moved   back   to   a   safe  distance.-   The alarm was  groundless  as  no powder was stored in the assay  office.   .The Clarendon building burned  quickly  and  the  firemen turned their  , attention   to  saying the International  but with one stream of water  this was  The  cost  more than it could be replaced for  today.     The  building- .was insured for  54,000,  the Phoenix of London���-Bealey  Investment  company, agents���holding  $2,000 and the Imperia- i-.-.i-irmny $2,000.  O. F. Mickle, the  lessee  of  the. hotel,  carried  $2,000 'insurance  on his slock.  Sperry's loss is about $150, covered; by  insurance.     D. W.   Morgan arrived in  the,citjr'.'on  Thursday.     He  takes  his,  loss philosophically, and states that he  will  start again   as' soon, as -suitable  premises cau.be secured.    Escalet will  also begin business again.     Guests -in  the  hotels   were  also  losers.       Harry  Needham, who was away toVaucouver,  had a room at the Clarendon,   and   his  clothes were destroyed.    Otlierguests  also lost some personal effects.  W. Clark, of Butte, returned from a  trip,to the West Fork on Wednesday,  only to find that all his clothing, jewelry, and papers had been destroyed  by the fire. He had a room in the  Clarendon Hotel. His loss amounts to  several hundred dollars. Insurance adjusters are expected in the city shortly  to make arrangements for the payment  of the amounts to which the losers are  entitled. The lire was not witj-nint its  amusing incidents. Many of (jr.-. spectators looked exceedingly pi, lurr-sque  in their hastily-donned garments. The  efforts to save household effects were  sometimes ludicrous in the extreme.  Bedclothes and other apparel were carefully carried down the stairs, while the  beds, crockery, and glassware were  thrown through the windows, to be  broken on the street below. Some of  the firemen narrowly escaped injury.  They were standing on the International Hotel veranda when it gave way.  Fortunately they'escaped without serious injury. Thos. Waish lost all his  papers and personal'..effects. A gold  watch belonging to ��� Mr. Waish was  afterwards  found in the ruins.    There  Thompson went  on  assistance.     Mr. dit  to   Beaverton   for j  rie went down the j  trail, and found Mr; Thompson   uncon-,'  scious.     He soon passed away.    It was  impossible   to   bring   the   remains  out  over   the trail, sp-thcy were interred at  Beaverton.-  Mr.   Thompson   was  well  known   throughout   the  district.    , He  was  in   business  at  Rock  Creek, and  Fairview.     During  the last few years  he has   been .living   at  Midway.     He  was  interested   in the new townsite of  Beaverton,   in   the West- Fork  of.the  Kettle   River  district.     The  deceased  had been seriously ill during the winter  mouths   with   pneumonia.      He   never  fully recovered, and the trip was taken  to the West Fork,country with the hope  that the  change  might  be  beneficial.  He leaves a wife, but no family.  m-  -"���Oil I  ny Further Than line  Next Door to Pos  ..FOR..  A. Iv. McEwen came in from the  Siinilkauieen country on Sunday'. Mr.  McEwen left, Col. Ray at Koremeos.  He left on- Sunday for Rossland, but  expects to return to 'the Simiikameen  district in a few days. Mr.,McEwen,  was pleased with tlie mining prospects  of the Simiikameen, but had not sufficient time to make.a thorough examination. He expects to spend several  weeks in the district.

They pointed to ten minutes  building should  be blown   up with  a    to   three   o'clock.     The ruins-of the  view to keeping the fire from spreading  but the suggestion was not adopted.  By  the  time the International was  burning, the street had  become block-,  ed with people.    There was an anxious  look on  most of the f aces^ because if  was felt that  the vacant lot between  the International  and   the  Arlington  would   not   stop   the   progress Of the  flames.     Had  the   Arlington   caught  the  business portion of the town was  doomed.      From    the     Arlington    to  Greenwood street,  there is no  vacent  space save where the Guess building, is  being erected.     Merchants  were busy  removing   goods   from   their    stores,'  feeling certain  that, the flames could  not be checked.     To show  that  there  was great danger it is  only  necessary  to state that the  heat  was so  great  that A. H. Sperry & Co's  store, across  the  street from the Clarendon; caught  fire   but   the   hose    was    temporarily  turned on and the blaze was quenched.  Wet tents  kept on the roof prevented  this building catching a  second   time.  The   volunteer fire department did  good work on the International   building.     They  persistently    fought    tu'e  flames.     They were handicapped   by  having only one stream but  this  they  used with good effect on the side of the  building nearest .'the Arlington.     This  side  of the building is still standing-  strong evidence of the merits of a good  force of water well applied.  The origin of the fire is a  matter  of  doubt. . The Clarendon Cafe had  been  closed at eleven o'clock Saturday night  and there   was   no  fire  in   the   range.  The fire started underneath the. building.     It  may   possibly  have been thf  work of an incandiary.    The losses are  heavy.       E.   Escalet, the  caterer,   is  probably the heaviest loser.     He   had  built up a    large   business,   and   was  getting well   established  when   everything was wiped out.    He and his family had barely time to escape with then-  lives, and lost all their personal effects.  Escalet's loss in   connection   with   the  cafe  is   about $2,500, and he carried no  insurance.    The Clarendon Hotel  company,   at  the   head   of which is D. W.  Morgan of  Rossland,   are  also   heavy  losers.   They had the place elaborately  fitted up, and carried a large  stock  of  the  very best liquors and cigars.    The  day before the fire a carload of supplies  arrived, and was stored in the building  only to   be  consumed.     Their   loss  is  about $7,000.    They carried only 32,500  insurance with the Imperial company���  Porter &  Cunningham,   agents.     The  Clarendon   building-   was  owned by T.  Walsh.    It was built this year at a cost  of $4,000,   and  was  insured   for  32,000  with the Imperial company.    Wm. Miller had no insurance  on   his   building,  which  was  worth   about S300.     J.   C.  Luckenbel's loss   is  about  3600.     His  insurance was S250   with   the  National  Insurance company of Ireland���Mowat  &  Palmer, agents.    The International  Hotel building and   the  furniture  was  owned   by  Eouis Bosshart.    The hotel  was one of the oldest  in   the  citv.     It  watch   have  been  secured :by   D.  Morgan as a memento of the fire.  W.  DEATH   OF   W.   T.   THOMPSON.  A Well-known Business Man Suddenly Dies at  Beaver Creek.  W. T.

Brown Has Secured Full Control Of All  His Properties.  "Volcanic" (R. A.) Brown, of Grand  Forks, is in the city. He has been  attending- court at Nelson, where suits  were pending- involving- some of his  valuable mineral property. Some years  ago Mr. Brown conveyed the celebrated  Volcanic claim to the Olive Mining  company,having a capital of 820,000,000.  Notwithstanding that it had millions  of shares iri the treasury, it g-ot into  debt, and not having- the cash to liquidate the same it closed down, and the  property was seized under executions!  and the.Volcanic sold last fall. Everybody thoug-ht that Mr. Brown would  lose the property, most of which he had  acquired 10 years ag-o. Mr. Brown,  however, was on the watch, and discovering- that the assessment work recorded last year was wholly inadequate,  he had the claims relocated, and acquired them from the new locators, and  promptly applied for certificates of improvements. No less than eight locations were entered to contest his rights.  Most of the parties were present this  week at Nelson, and on the eve of trial  a settlement was made whereby Mr.  Brown becomes the owner of all three  properties, and the other parties will  receive a portion of their claims against  the company. Mr. Brown feels quite  elated over the matter, and is well satisfied with the terms of settlement.  Attorney-General Martin and Smith  Curtis acted for Mr. Brown.  He proposes as soon as he gets his  certificates of improvements to beg-in  work on the Volcanic and Iron Cap.  The ore body on these is from 400 to  1,000 feet wide, running- to the top of  the Volcanic, which is elevated 1,500  feet above the river. The ore body is  decomposed iron and oxides on the surface, and is so large that it can easily  be seen from points of vantage 10 miles  away. About $25,000 has been spent  in development. There is a-tunnel in  481 feet, giving- a depth of .about 700  feet, and the breast of it is supposed  now to -be near the ore body. It will  further on give a depth of about 1,200  feet. The people of Grand Forks look  forward to the opening up of the im-  niense ore bodies of these claims as a I  big advertisement for their city and '  district. Tlie ore on the surface is low !  grade, assaying in gold and copper;  from 55 to 312, but it is confidently be-.  lieved that exploration will demonstrate !  rich ore chutes. Assays as high as $82 :  in gold and 12 per cent'copper have :  been g-ot from select samples. The adjoining Golden Eagle company, whose !  vein is said to rim towards tlie Volcanic :  is now showing plenty of high grade j  ore, with averages of $50 and ��60. j  The Volcanic has an iron cap from  200 to 500 feet wide, with assaj-s up to |  S10 in gold and 12 per cent copper. A j  shaft 40 feet deep has been sunk, show-'  ing considerable ore all the way and j  an improvement as depth is gained. j  Mr. Brown oxpects before the snow  Hies to have large forces at work on all ;  his properties.���Rossland Miner.  and Colorado. The ca pital of the organization is $6,000,000, divided into  60,000 shares of' $100 each, and the  stock has been taken up by New York  capitalists.  The New York city press has also  become aware of tlie existence of mineral wealth in Canada's western province. The New York Commercial of  the 7thinst printed the following-:���  " CD. Porter, orebuyer for the Kansas City Smelting- & Refining company,  Washington, who is on a visit to this  city, says that British Columbia is the  greatest mining- country known today.  A few years ago he could have bought  mines at Rossland, which are now selling- at $2,000,000, and others that he  could have bought for $700,000 orS800,000  are now selling- for $4,000,000or$S,000,000  and are paying handsome profits, and  will continue to do so at these prices  for years to come. West of Rossland,  in the Boundary Creek district, he believes there is the greatest copper district in America. The ledges are immense, and the ore is self-fiuxing, the  formation being such that they will go  to unlimited depths.  "When the  Crow's  Nest  Pass  road  reaches this country,  and   the  leading  mines���owned by the British Columbia  Copper   Company,   Eimited,   and   McKenzie   &   Mann���get   their  smelters  erected, they will have what might be  called   a  regular  manufacturing business, the output of   which   will  exceed  the  Rand  of   South   Africa.    English  capital is just waking-  up  to  the   fact  that British Columbia has the greatest  mineral country known.     In   the   last  six months $10,000,000 has been invested  in this northern country.    Mr. Porter believes that  the opening of the  Crow's    Nest    Pass    railroad,    which  passes through an immense deposit  of  coal, will give the mines coke at so low  a cost that the ores can be treated at  a  nominal  figure.      All   the mines, both  in Rossland and Boundary Creek, have  ! shown steady improvement as they acquired   depth.     The  Le  Roi   mine  of  Rossland, which is now down 900  feet,  has the largest and highest  grade  ore  body  j'et explored.     In the Boundary  Creek district the Mother Lode, .which  is owned by the British Columbia Copper Company, Limited, has the deepest  workings,   and   has   shown steady improvement.       He   believes,   however,  that the Boundary Creek  country   has  much  larger bodies of ore, and carries  a  higher  grade   of   copper   than   the  Rossland mines."

"Arrangements   Being Made for the   installation of a Cyanide Flant���An Expert's  Opinion of the Property.  Among the properties  in. the  Boundary creek upon which a large amount  of work has been done during the last  few months is the Jewel mine  in Long  Lake camp.    The Jewel is one  of the  oldest locations in the district.-   It  is  situated in Long Lake camp near the  ��������� lake and within eight miles of Greenwood.    A good wagcn road   connects  the property with the city.   The Jewel  was bonded by Mr. Leslie Hill, M. E.,  for the Prospecting Syndicate of B. C.  A considerable amount of work  was  carried out on  the property  and the  first steam  plant ever brought to the  district  was  installed  thereon.      Mr.  Hill's other   engagements   prevented  his giving the necessary time to the  development   of  the   property   so   he  mapped out ��� the plan  of, development  and the mine was placed in charge of  Mr. Gilbert Mahon.    In the meantime  another company was   organized   in  London, to confine  its attention to the  development of the Jewel mine.     This  company  is registered  as   the Jewel  Development syndicate.     Mr.   Mahon  took charge of the property in  November last year  and  since then 520 feet  : has been added to the work of the property.   There is now over 1000 feet of  underground work.  ��� The Jewel ledge occurs in a gran it  formation. It is in some places altered  and cut by dykes haying a distinctly  porphyritic structure. About 20 feet  north of the south line of the claim the  formation is considerably disturbed for  a distance of about 200 frfeet and the  ledge has not been exposed by the  surface work in this area. North o��  the Jewel on the Enterprise the ledge  has been uncovered in several places.  It is similar in many respects to the  Jewel ledge but it differs slightly in  dip and strike. In all probability it is  the Jewel ledge and as depth is attained it will probably be found that the  variations are local. The ledge is a  regular fissure vein, averaging four  feet in width, carrying a thin clay  gangue. The ore carries quantities of  galena, zinc blende, iron pyrities and  occasionally ruby silver, tellurium,  and tellurides of gold and silver and  some free gold.  The main shaft is 7x3J^ in the clear.  It is well timbered and lagged. The  shaft is 248 feet in depth' and runs on  an incline of 45 degrees. The development work includes 600 feet of drifts  and crosscuts and 160 feet of raises  and winzes. This work has thoroughly exposed the vein and blocked out  the ore to the depth of the shaft and  for more than 100 feet on each side.  There is 500 tons of ore on the dump  and a conservative estimate of the ore  blocked out and in sight would be  11,000 tons. Exceedingly high assays  have been secured. The mine has  been throughly sampled and a careful  record kept of the values at all points.  The average for the entire mine is  $13.36 in gold and silver. Experts who  have examined the property state that  the ore can be mined and treated by  the cyanide process for $5 a ton leaving $8 a tori profit.  The company intend installing a  50 ton cyanide plant at Long Lake at  an early date. The distance from the  present shaft to the mill site is about  2000 feet. It is the intention of the  company to sink another shaft at the  upper end of the property,' run a  gravity tramway from the shaft to the  mill a distance of 400 feet.  Mr. D. J. McDonald until recently  superintendent of the Columbia &  Kootenay spent several days at the  Jewel last week. He made a thorough  examination, sampled the ore in all the  workings and made recommendations  regarding future development. ��� The  statements given above are fully  corroborated by Mr. McDonald's report.  *TH -  BRAND FLOUR,  Our bread flours are made  from wheat pronounced by  experts at Minneapolis and  Winnipeg* as Extra, No. 1  Hard, arid our flour as the  superior, of any brands now  the market.

Greenwood on  Dominion Day. It was proposed'to  make a pitch in the centre of the base  ball ground and cover it with cocoa-  nut matting, but the idea has fallen  through on account of the inability of  the Midway club to get together a team .  to play the Greenwood eleven. It is a  matter of much regret that an opportunity for the people of Greenwood to  see the king of games will not be  afforded. Could the idea have been  carried out the celebration would have  been complete in all branches.  re at West F��ork  COUNTRY  Prospectors  save packing- by buying your outfits at West-  bridge 10 miles above Rock Creek.
