In.,"Boundary Creek district  the'miners at the Brooklyn and Sunset  refused to work under the new arrangements which the mineowners considered necessary to meet the reduction in  the hours of labor. Since it was announced by the government that the  eight-hour law would be enforced, mine  owners and representatives of property  had seveial meeting's in the city with a  view to arriving at some definite conclusion regarding the enforcementof  the eight-hour law. It was at . last  decided to adopt and adhere to the1  Rossland sen In of wages. This scale  allows 83.50 l',.��r eight hours for machine  men. The trouble arose in the mines  without drilis... The old scale of $3.50  was allowed for eight hours in shafts;  but in dry drifts hammer-men were  reduced to $3 for eight hours. This  reduction affected only' the two properties mentioned, as the other mines  working ii iiUerground drifts have drills.  When the announcement was made to  the men at the Brooklyn and Sunset,  they refused to accept the reduction.  They were given their time and pay,  and all. came to the city. It is reported  that as McKenzie, Mann, & Co. owning the Stemwinder and Brooklyn,  and the Montreal-Boundary Creek Co.���  owning the Sunset, have purchased  compressors . for their properties, no  special effort will be made to secure  men at the $3 rate, the owners being  satisfied to await the installation of  their big, plants, when the . cause for  the dissatisfaction of the men .will 'be  removed.  SITUATION   AT  NELSON.  A Nelson despatch states that with  the enforcement of the eight-hour law  theMiners'TJnion showed its hand when  the miners from the Athabasca, Granite, and Royal Canadian mines, over  100 in all, came into town. This was  rather a surprise, as it was thought  the Athabasca, by reducing the price  of board, had made satisfactory arrangements with the men. The Granite miners quit about ten days ago, but  their places had since been filled, while  no complaint had been heard from the  Royal Canadian. The two latter mines  belong to the Duncan Mines, Limited,  and the miners on the Gr : -i ite were I  formerly paid $3.50, and -charged SI a I  day for board, while on the Royal Can-'  adian they, got S3, and were charged 75  cents   a  day  for  board.     On  June T,  wages   at  the  Granite  dropped  to S3,  but no change was made on the, Royal  Canadian, where the miners are better  off now than before.   The management  is very sore, and attributes  the  action  of the Royal Canadian, miners to intimidation, but it is only fair to ,say  that  there is no evidence of  any  influence,  save   the   moral   one   of   the   Union.  There is no change at the Hall mines,  and  no sign of any.    Those mines are  largely non-union, and   the  conditions  there are peculiar.   The regular wages  there  have always, been S3 and S2.50.  Some men working for wages are  now-  better off than  ever.      About 75 per  cent of the work is  done   by   contract,  the  men   working  at   so  much a foot.(  Skilled   miners  working  thus   are  all  making   good   nioneyj' and   the  wage  question does not affect   them.     Many  of  them   have worked  there for two,,  three, and four years.    The Exchequer  is still working, and Union representatives received  a cold  reception   there.  One of  the   men   informed   them   that  but  for  the unions,they would now be  getting $3i50, as before, instead of S3.  ROSSr.AND ALLr.KIGHT.   .  : Fronv .Rossland   word    comes    that  there is no  trouble  in; the  camp. ���: In :  February, when  the  law   was   passed,  the   mineowners ; commenced to follow  out its provisions,   and   there  has   not  been - a  hitch since.   The mineowners  did not wish to.have  any   trouble,   nor  did   the   miners,   and concessions were'  made on both  sides.     It was feared ;���  before the law  went  into . effect  that  there might be  trouble.     This  apprehension was shown more by the miners  than the operators.:   It was displaced  in  the fact tliat  the. :miners   stopped :  spending their money except for necessities, and when asked the reason why  replied  that. there  might be a strike  over the  eight-hour' law,   and   if   the  trouble came they wanted a few dollars  in case of  a  possible  lockout.     When  the government temporarily suspended  the law, it made  no difference to the  Rossland  mineowners;- as'they cohtin-s  ,ued theeight-hoursystein.Itisclaimed,  however, as a matter "of fact,  that the '  men do-not accomplish " as much in 8  hours as they used,to in 10.     The rate  of wages paid is just the same as when '  10 hours were worked.     Even  before  the law was passed, considerable three-  shift work was done, and this  made  it  necessary  to only work 8 hours:  that  is to say,   the  eight-hour  system  was  partially   in   effect at this camp before  the law was  passed.     At   the  present  writing  the  best  of  feeling prevails,  the men are satisfied,  and-/so are the  mineowners,   and   there   will    be    no  trouble over the eight-hour law.  THE   CELEBRATION.  Arrangements Being Perfected for Two Big  Days Sports.  T'.ie committee appointed by the citizens and a committee from the Greenwood AthK vie Association got down to  hard work Litis week, with the result  that there is now every assurance that  the two days celebration to be held, on  July 3 and 4 will eclipse anything of  the kind ever held in the Boundary  Creek district. The committee outlined their plans, and are now working  out the details of the big celebration.  The finance committee were hustlers,  and by the end of this week will have  S2.000 for prizes! The committee decided to offer two big prizes for a drilling contest to encourage the miners to  come into the city. The winning team  will receive S200, and the second team  S100. It is stipulated, however, that a  team must drill 30 inches to win either  money. This ensures a magnificent  contest of speed and endurance. There  is going 1o be some good horseracing,  including two or three novelty, races  that will afford plenty, of amusement.  Baseball enthusiasts will get what they  want inthe shape of a game between  the veterans���possibly two. There is  going to be something new in the shape  of lacrosse. A game has never been  played in the Boundary Creek country.  It is Canada's national game, and a  most exciting and entertaining one it  is. The small sports are well looked  after. There will be plenty of events  in this line. The local firemen will be  given an opportunity to show their  speed and dexterity with hose and reel.  The committee decided to offer a prize  of S25 for the best decorated building  in the city. It is hoped everyone will  take an interest in the prize, so that  the city may have a gala appearance  during the celebration. There is going  to be lots of fireworks, and Pat Welch  has promised to save some dynamite,  which is now terrorizing the sleepy  denizens of tlie town at an unearthly  hour in the morning, for a royal salute, ���Ef.��if^iJ5��^.?-iCfKffitR:i!W  ['HE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.

To those who were in the district in  the earlydays, five and six years ago,  when the Skylark,: Providence, Defiance and other claims made shipments of high-grade ore. the'news that  a bona fide company has again commenced operations in the well-known  section of Boundary Creek, called Skylark camp, will be welcome. This.com-.  pany, the Boundary Mining- Company.  Limited, with headquarters in Spokane,  and registered at Victoria, owns the  Last Chance, one of the best properties in the group of claims which'con-  stitute the Skylark camp.  To those unfamiliar with the history  of the camp it may be interesting- to  learn that when mining in Boundary  Creek was at a discount; when the.pros-  pect, of the district securing transportation facilities was extremely far  distant; when Boundary Creek was a  practically unexplored and unknown  section of the Province, and its mineral  wealth was not by any means recognized; in the years immediately preceding- the staking of the first claims  in the Trail Creek district, the Skylark,  Providence, Defiance and other claims  were then being- worked and from time  to time made shipments of ore. It is  almost unnecessary to state that the  ore shipped was very high-grade, as in  those days, working- a mining- property  in Boundary Creek was an expensive  and difficult operation^ involving no  little faith, pluck and perseverance.  Planks and mining- timbers had to be  hewn or made by whipsaw, necessities  of every kind were expensive, and the  ore shipped had to be carried on the  backs of cay uses over a rough miner's  trail and then hauled long-distances  over an apology for a wag-on road.  Still ore was shipped, though not in  larg-e quantities. When, however, it  became apparent that the district must  necessarily within a few years' time  obtyin transportation facilities and  after the best-known claims in the  camp had'changed hands, and in some  cases been acquired by companies,  the'hi although the Skylark, 'Last  Chance Bnd other properties were de-'  veloped, no further shipments were  made, it being obviously better policy  to await the advent of a railway and  allow the ore to remain on the dump  than to continue to send the ore to the  smelter by wagon or pack trains over  many miles of badly constructed roads.  Thus it happens that the claims which  in the pioneer days of mining in  Boundary Creek helped greatly to furnish work and give' heart to the early  pioneers, will, under different conditions, again come into prominence as  being amongst the first of . the Boundary Creek mines to take advantage of  the facilities afforded by the construction of thf C. & W. Ry. to consign ore  to the smelter.  The Last Chance is a full-sized claim,  for which a Crown grant was obtained  in 1897. The original owners, Messrs.  Cook & McCormick, did a considerable  amount of work on the property, exposing a four-foot lead, on which they  sank a shaft over forty ' feet deep on  the lead. In the spring of 1895 the  present company was formed and the  claim passed into their hands. The  original shaft was then continued to a  depth of 110 feet, following the ore  down. Leaving a few feet for a sump  a thirty-foot drift on the lead was then  made at this depth. "The vein, along  this drift is four feet between walls in  a diorate formation, and has a pay  streak of eighteen inches. The ore  carries ruby silver and gray copper in  a silicious gangue and the pay streak  averages SI.20 in gold and silver. This  lead has been exposed by deep crosscuts on the surface for about 1,000,fetit,  and also on the adjoining claim, the  Lake, for 200 feet. Its strike is northwest and southeast, and it dips to the  east at an angle of over 45 degrees  into   the   mountain  side.

The claim is well sitnated, lying  alongside the main stage-'road' and  within a mile of transportation at  Greenwood.- It is well timbered, the  timber being of ,a size suitable for  mining purposes. '-'  The Boundary Mining Company is  incorporated for $1,000,000, in $1 "shares',1'  fully paid up and non-assessable. So  far'i practically no stock has been  placed on the market, the promoters  having contributed 1-5 of their personal holdings in order to meet calls  for the,'development so far accomplished.  Considering the quality of the ore,  the situation of the claims, which will  render development and production less  difficult,than in most mining ventures,  and the permanent nature of the lead  so far developed, the Boundary Mining  company can be congratulated on having secured the Last Ch.i:ue mine, and  can safely count on having acquired a  property of great promi ������.

Between the  two leads a vertical double compartment shaft, timbered with square sets,  has been sunk 110 feet, and the intention of the company is to sink this  shaft another 65 feet and then (leaving  25 feet for a sump) cross-cut for both  ore bodies at the 150 level. This policy  will commend itself to mining men.  At  the present   time a hoisting and j  pumping  plant is  being  installed on  the  claim,  consisting  of   a   ten-horse  power  boiler,   hoist  and   cable, and  a  No. 7 Cameron pump.  The present buildings consist of a  commodious shaft house and a roomy  bunk house and   some  miners' cabins,  The section to the west of here, known  as  the  Boundary country,   has   been  known    to   contain   valuable   mining  properties   for   a   good   many   years.  The ore, with remote exceptions, is not  free-milling,' but is rather base,  and  the best means of reducing it  is by  smelting.    The section  has  not  been  productive because it lacked transportation facilities.    For the past three or  four   years   there   has   been   a great-  activity  there because  transportation  was promised,  and  as  an  outcome,   a  number, of .mines will be ready to ship  when the railway  arrives.     Prospects  have been  placed in a position to be  called mines; ���they could today, if  the  railroad was completed, commence the  shipping of ore from what,  in  quite  a  number of instances, are large dumps.  Among  these  are the B. C, the Ironsides, the Knob Hill, the Brooklyn, the  Stemwinder,  the  City   of   Paris,   the  Lincoln,  the Winnipeg,  Brandon'and  Golden Crown, Mother Lode, Morrison,  Jewel, and others.   In addition to these  there   are   properties   like   the   King  Solomon, the Snowshoe, the Pathfinder,  and others, that in a short time will be  ready to ship.    Besides, too, there is a  district   in  the Burnt Basin which was  only opened a few   months  since,   and  which, .within   a   very   short   time,   in  such  properties  as the  Mother Lode,  the John Bull  group,  the  Ennismore,  the Mystery, and other properties, will  ere   long   become   producers   of   pre.  There are some 12 or . 13  mines  in  the  Boundary section���mentioned   above���  however,  that  are now ready to ship,  and immediately on the advent  of the  railway, will produce at least 2,000 tons  of ore per week.     This  quautity they  I will  be  able to increase, and inside of  j six months they should be able to'.pro-  j duce at  least  4,000 tons  every seven  days.     Further on  this quantity will  be largely augmented, and  some conservative  mining   engineers   estimate  that within two or three years the output  of   the   Boundary   Creek   section  j should be at least 8,000 tons  per  week.  This quantity added to  that   produced  in   the Trail Creek division, and in the  Slocan, East Kootenay, and other portions, of   the   Kootenays,   will   make a  grand aggregate that will   be   hard   to  match   anywhere  on   this continent in  the same area.

The Spokesman-Review gives the following par-  ���_ticulars:������     '    '- ���  "Rheumatism of the heart is the  supposed cause of death. Mr. ������ Dixon  had been ailing for several weeks, but  continued at work until a few days  ago. Up to almost the'hour, of his  death there was no suspicion the illness would prove fatal.

C. c. ��� . .   ���'  ���  Dear Sir :  I have recently learned since 1113-" 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, }>-our leading brokers, assayers,  merchants, mining men,   and citizens.  Why do the}'- own property in Beaverton ? Because they know a good  thing when they see it. That is what,is building Greenwood cit}*- up so  fast, and besides they have been on the ground and have seen it themselves.  Beaverton is the c'jrininn-'* of the West Fork branch of the .Canadian  Pacific Railway, there are no other branches in that part of the country.  Why is Beaverton going to be prosperous and a large and thriving  centre ? Because it is the key to the entire.mining district, and running  right up to, in fact right into the town, are some of thelargest 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. iEy. Shaw, or in fact anyone who has   been at  Beaverton what he thinks of it ? .....  a  Yours truly,  W.T.THOMPSON.  VICTORIA. B. C.  LONDON, ENG  VANCOUVER, B.

The attoriiey-gener..l g.vehis  opinion as follows:���  "The Placer-Mining A. i, Kurther  Amendment Act, was carefully drawn,  and if I had to draw it again I would  not change a word of it. Li-en.-es  issued before the act comes into torce  are unquestionably good for the term  for which they were taken out. and  those who have taken out e:-.tr;i licenses  ' in the fear that they injght have lost  their .properties have just been contributing so much to.the revenue gratuitously. There is a saving clause in the  act, but even without that clause there  would be no reason to fear that the  licenses would have been rendered- invalid. The apt only applies to licenses  issued after the act came into operation. This should ��� be clear to anyone  who reads it over. For my own part I  may say that I'm holding some property on a license taken out in February  last. It has not been renewed, nor will  it be until the proper time���and I'd like  to see someone jump my claim ! "  time shall be the legal standard for the  measurement of water in this state.  "Section 2���Where water rights expressed in miners' inches have been  granted, one hundred" miners' inches  shall be considered equivalent to a flow  of two and one-half cubic feet (18.7  gallons) per second ; two hundred miners' inches shall be considered equiva7  lent to a flow of five cubic feet (37.4  gallons) per second, and this proportion  ���hall be observed in determining, the  equivalent flow represented by any  nu:;:bi'r"of miners' inches.  ������ .Section 3���Provided that the provisions of this bill shall not affect or  change the measurement of water heretofore decreed by a court, but such decreed, waters shall be measured according to the law in force at the time such  decree was made and entered.  F.J. MITCHELL  HAS JUST  A LARGE  John R. Reavis, who visited Greenwood last week, has an interesting  article in the Republic Miner on the  cities of the Boundary Creek district.  Greenwood is the metropolis of the  Boundary Creek country. " What we  have we'll hold!"  A conservative organizer in Boundary creek is as much out of place as a  fish out of water.  , Whether the celebration is to be a  success or not entirely depends upon  the citizens.

It was to be expected that  an innovation such as the eight-hour  law would meet with considerable opposition, and might possibly lead to  conflict. It is a happy commentary  upon the high respect held for.law and  order in the province that nothing of  the kind has happened. It is unfortunate that in some instances the employers and employed were unable to  come to satisfactory arrangements,  and mines were closed down and men  thrown out of employment. With good  judgment and common sense these differences will in a short time be wiped  out, and the mining industry will be  carried on under the eight-hour law  with as little triction as ��� was shown  before the law was enacted.  THE B. C. MINE.  Everyone interested in the development of the mineral resources of Boundary Creek cannot but be gratified at  the wonderfully successful career of  the B. C. mine. Two mines made  Rossland. Take away the Le Roi and  the War Eagle, and the Kootenay metropolis would be a sorry place indeed.  So it is with Greenwood. Its. future is  so closely connected with that of the  mining properties tributary to it, that  evolution from a prospect to a mine  marks a new epoch in the history of  the city. The B. C. mine, and other  big properties in the immediate vicinity, have been and must necessarily be  Greenwood's strongest and best friends.  It is in the interests of the city that  everything should be done to encourage  their friendship.  Vernon 4 Nelson Telephone Company   Have  Secured Connection Wiih Inland Telephone.  On Tuesday last the Vernon &  Nelson Telephone Company secured  connection with the Inland Telephone  Company at Cascade City. . The latter  company have been busy building a  line from Bossburg to Cascade. This  was completed and the connection  made on Tuesday. Formerly the  Vernon & Nelson company worked  with the Spokane and British Columbia  company. The new arrangement  will give better opportunities to . do  business and will obviate vexatious  delays. The Inland company have  two metallic lines running ���between  Spokane and Rossland. When the  Boundary Creek patrons want either  place, the alternate line will be used  for the Rossland-Spokanebusiness, thus  insuring a prompt service. Heretofore  the delays were occasioned principally  by Rossland and Spokane monopolizing  the single wire. The Inland company  has direct connection with Republic,  and throughout all the western states.  A person in Greenwood can now speak  to Portland, Vancouver, San Francisco,  or even Los Angeles if his purse be  long enough.  Boundary Creek M. & M.

The kight of claim holders to the  timber on their mineral claims has  been a moot question for several years.  Hon. F. C. Cotton, chief commissioner  of lands and works, has issued a circular which deals with this important  question. Mr. Cotton's construction of  the law is that the owner of a mineral  claim, whether crown-granted or not  has a right to the use of the timber  upon the claim. The claim holder is,  however, subject to the royalty levied  by the crown, and the timber inspector  has been instructed to make collections  when timber is used. The government  will protect claim holders in their right  to the timber, but they will be asked to  pay royalty.  s$ 4* 4�� 4- 4* 4* 4- 4* 4* -I* <$"��� 4* 3?  4��  4��  4��  ���*  Just Arrived  A FINE LINE OF   California Bottled aud Canned goods   i ��� ��o���� �����. ��� tmt ��ne.m �������� ��a�� ��� ���* o ��������� ��a* ��� *m  A Most Complete  Grocery ^ Stock  ��f->  4>  4>  MINERAL   ACT,   1896.

The  visitors  to  the   B.   C.  leaves Greenwood by the Summit camp  ,   road.    The grade is easy and  the road  has  been  weil built.      He   passes   a  slaughter house, three saw mills,  and  sees  upon  the steep   mountain  sides  location posts and mouths  of  tunnels,  and shafts where outcroppings might  be expected and were found and where  the Oro Denero  and the Emma and a  : dozen   other   properties    are   located.  Beyond   the country becomes comparatively level and  the   traveller natur-  ,    ally supposes that he must journey  to  a hill seen  in   the distance to see the  B. C.     But an opening is seen in the  thick woods,   a neat residence, shaft  house, bunk house and other buildings  come into view and the B. C.   is  found  where least expected.  ,,.   The story of the B. C.   told in all its  details with sidelights thrown upon it,  would make intensly  interesting reading.    It was located as a "wild cat"  and  was considered one   until about  two years ago when'John Keough  and  sons    secured   the    property.      John  Keough,  a  Colyille   rancher left his  home to prospect Summit camp.    He  was  accompanied by  his sons.     One  day  they happened  to be on the B. C.  ground which had already  been located.    For no particular reason  they began   to   prospect   the   ground.    They  uncovered a ledge of copper ore.     The  locater   was   away.       The   Keough's  wrote   him   offering   a   few   hundred  dollars for the   property.     The offer  was eagerly  accepted -and  the claim  was transferred to the Keough's. They  went to  work and found rich  copper  ore from the grass roots.  ENGLISH  CAPITAL.  The merits of the property soon became public and representatives of  English capital gave it their attention.  A. Iy. McEwen, who was in Greenwood  a few weeks ago was the first to take  hold of the property. He represented  the Mines Selection Company of  "Condon: He visited the property and  in less than five minutes he had it  bonded for $60,000. Mr. McEwen's  principals refused to sanction the deal  believing the property to be too remote  from transportation. Mr. McEwen  was reluctuntly compelled to throw up  the bond and Messrs. Harrison and  Barchard immediately rebonded the  property for themselves and English  associates, at the same figure. They-  began work in August 1897. A 30  horse power boiler, a 5-drill compressor  and a small h oist were secured and  continuous development work began.  A shaft was sunk 165 feet. At SO feet  a drift was run along the ledge and a  similar drift at ISO feet. They worked  the property for 12 months, paid the  $60,000, piled up 2000 tons of rich  copper ore on the dumps and then  turned their attention to representatives of capital eager to purchase the  property.  THE COMINO OF MCCUAIG.  Major R. G. Edwards Leckie, the  well known mining engineer came into  the Boundary creek country last year  for the purpose of examining big property for a Montreal syndicate at  whose head is Clarence J. McCuaig of  the firm of McCraig, Rykert & Co.  Major Leckie was at once impressed  with the B. C. and spent five days in  examining the property. He surveyed  and examined and assayed and sampled until he became fully convinced  that the B. C. was even a better property than its owners were aware of.  Major Leckie made his report and the  McCuaig syndicate purchased the property at a figure which has never been  made public. It is rumoured that the  price was $300,000. A company was  floated in Montreal. So eager were  investors to secure the property that  they oversubscribed by several hundred thousand shares. Clarence J. McCuaig is a striking figure among the  big promoters of western ruining  ventures: He is responsible for the  flotation of the new Payne company in  the Slocan. He was the moving spirit  in securing for Canadians the control  of the Republic mine. It is only in  keeping with the eternal fitness of  things that a property like the B.C  should"also pass under his control.  '���.���������      DEVELOPING THE PROPERTY.  The  new company placed  a   large  sum of money in the treasury  and the  development of the property  was  renewed on a larger scale.   Major Leckie  was retained'  as  consulting  engineer,  and  John   M. Scrafford appointed superintendent.    Mr. Scrafford has had   a  long and  successful experience in de-  i veloping mining properties.     For  the  ,.-. same syndicate he was superintendent  of the Josie and the Gertrude &  Coxey  in Rossland.    The company purchased  a big plant for the property, but deemed  it advisable to defer bringing it to the  mine until  the  railway  is  completed.  The  development work is  being confined to the 50-  and   150-foot   levels.  The  intention, of  the   Company   is to  thoroughly open  up the ore  body  on  these levels to fully demonstrate the  pitchand trend of the deposit, which is  necessary to determine the nn-s'l advantageous place to sink  a  large   vertical  working  shaft.     Drifts have been run  north and south along the ore bodies at  the 50- and ISO-foot levels,  and  cross-  .cuts run at different points to determine  the width of the ore body.   In addition  to the 165-foot shaft there is 685 feet of  work at  the 50-foot and 625 feet at the  150-foot levels.      There are  also  two  raises from  the 50-foot  level.       The  work will be continued until the arrival  of the new plant,  when  a new   three-  compartment  shaft will  be sunk.    It  will   be   connected   with   the   present  workings,   and   levels   will   be   made,  every 100 feet.   The new plant includes  two 80-horse-power engines,  a 20-drill  compressor,  and a large hoist.    It was'  purchased   from . the   James   Cooper  Manufacturing Company, Montreal.  THE ORE. '  The ore body is-a contact deposit  between limestone and "eruptive rock.  Porphyry dikes are encountered at intervals, in the vicinity of which the  ore is richer. The first-class ore is a  solid sulphide composed of chalcopyrite  with a little pyrrhotite. It is most  desirable ore for any smelter, because  of its rich co'pper values and excess of  iron. The crosscuts run from the drifts  show that the ore body varies in width  from 15 feet to 40 feet.  VALUE IN SIGHT.  The visitor to the mine is at once  impressed by the rich appearance of  the ore dumps. There is a dump of  picked ore containing 1,500 tons, a  smelter return  from  which  gave $57.  The second-class dump contains over  2,500 tons, and is worth at least S20 to  the ton. The values in the second-  class dump average 7>/Z per cent copper, 4 ounces silver, and SI in gold.  No effort has yet been made to strip  the ore but from the bod}' on the surface, a similar showing at the 50-foot  level, and again at the 150-foot level,  it is a very conservative estimate to  say that there are in sight at the B. C.  mine 40,000 tons of ore that will average $25 to the ton.  BUILDINGS.  The new company has built a neat  residence for the superintendent. In  addition to this'there are a large shaft-  house���25x70 feet���, a neat bunkhouse,  a boardinghouse, an office, and other  small buildings., A. healthy-looking  vegetable garden and a beautiful flower  garden bears testimony to the fact that  the soil above is as rich as the rore  beneath.      ���'..'.''.. .   .,  SHIPPING  FACILITIES.  The Canadian Pacific Railway company are building a branch line to the  B. C. The branch leaves the main  line at Eholt, and passes between the  bunkhouses and the ore dump. The  work of construction is being vigorously prosecuted with the expectation  of having the branch completed at the  same time as the main line. All the  smelters are anxious to secure the ore,  and will treat it at the most favorable  rates on account of its very desirable  qualities.  The B. C. was located under a lucky  star. Since its history began there  has been nothing to stop its progress  or blemish its reputation. There  never has been an accident at the  property. Its path to a place among |  the big mines of the world has been  and is likely to be a smooth one.  Look Any Further Than The  ..- '���  ��#* *#*��� *^3>*f* -^ #>  Tin  Next Door to Postoflice.

In the special holiday number of the  Boundary Creek  Times,  published  at  Christmas last year, there appeared a  list���compiled by  R.   F.   Coates,   contractor and builder���of the  number  of  buildings erected during the year 1898.  The total  cost of the  buildings were  figured at $69,200.    A careful estimate  of the building operations for the  past  portion of 1899 places the expenditure  during that time at $203,400.     One  of  the healthiest sig-ns of progress during  1898  was  the   number  of   substantial  buildings' erected.    That the town has  grown beyond the expectations of  the  most optimistic is shown by the detailed  statement given below.  The buildings erected during the year,  or under construction, are of the most  substantial character.     Some of them  are imposing structures that would   do  credit  to the principal street of a large  city.    This is particular^' true  of  the  Miller & Wallace block on Copper-st.,  the walls of which  are  being erected.  The building will occupy a frontage of  75 feet on Copper street, and will run  back along Centre street  for  110  feet.  It   will  be  three   stories  high.      The  foundation   and   walls   to   the   second  floor will be of stone.    The rest of the  building will be brick.    J. W. Powell's  hotel  on Government street is another  handsome structure.     It  is  a  3-storey  frame  building-,   occupying 75 feet on  Government street and   running  back  along  Deadwood   street 115 feet.    The  hotel, when completed,Will  be one  of  the best in the interior.    Probably the  handsomest building in  the  city  from  ati   architectural standpoint is Rendell  & Co.'s 3-story   block at the  corner  of  Copper and Greenwood streets.    It has  a 50-foot frontage, and   runs  back   110  feet  along- Greenwood street.    Lack of  space precludes a   detailed  description  of the many substantial business blocks  and comfortable residences   that  have  been   erected  during   the year.    They  all bear strong testimony to the  confidence their builders have in the future  of the city.     There   appears  to   be   no  cessation   in   the   building operations.  Contractors  state  that   new   work   is  coming   in   every   day.     It   is  a  very  conservative statement indeed to state  that during 1899 halt-a-million   dollars  will  not represent the money expended  on buildings in the city.

Rossland Board of Trade Ask that the District  be Divided.  The following memorial has been  sent to Sir Wilfred Laurier by the  Rossland Board of Trade:���  "Your petitioners, the Board of Trade  of the City of Rossland, British Columbia, beg to draw your attention to the  urgent need of an amendment to the  Redistribution of Seats Bill, now before  the House of Commons, providing for  a separate member for the district of  Kootenay, which ��� is situated' in the  electoral district of Yale-Cariboo!  " Your petitioners would point out in  this connection that while the Province  of British Columbia is represented in  the Dominion House by six members,  three of them represent constituencies  on Vancouver Island, with a total white  population about equal to that of the  immense area embraced in Yale, Cariboo, and Kootenay, which has only one  member. Your petitioners are not unmindful of the fact that after the next  census a redistribution will take place  which ihey doubt not will give Kootenay all the representation it is entitled  to, but they submit respectfully that an  electionnnder that bill is not likely to  occur, for four or five years, and that  lasting injury will be done to the mining industry of the Dominion if Kootenay is deprived of representation until  ��� then.'. ,.'.������''    '".'--,'.���  " Your petitioners desire to point out  why relief should be specially extended  to Kootenay at this time, and why, in  their opinion, the situation in Kootenay  is without any thing approaching a parallel in the Dominion :  Firstly���The present population  of  Kootenay, an unusually large proportion  of which  is adult males, exceeds  , 25,000.  Secondly���The principal industry of  the district is mining, an industry  which requires and will handsomely  repay the fostering care of the ^federal  government, and which is at present  without a single representative in  either House of Parliament.  Thirdly���The district contributes to  the revenue of the Dominion a higher  per capita than any other section of  Canada.  Fourthly���The development of mining in Kootenay is attracting the attention of the whole world to the Dominion as it never has been before,  resulting in an increase both in the  number" of immigrants and in the  amount of foreign capital seeking investment, and it is therefore fitting the  district should have a voice in the  Parliament of Canada.     i  Fifthly���The population, wealth and  production are increasing so rapidly  that it is absolutely certain the census  of 1901 will show a population of at  least 50,000 in Kootenay.  Sixthly���The importance of the district is evidenced by the fact that hundreds of miles of new railroads are  just completed, or under construction,  to more fully open it up, while seven  chartered banks have no less than 17  , branches in operation.  Lastly���While exact returns of federal revenue collected in Kootenay cannot be obtained by your petitioners,  they have xeason to believe that these  returns must closely approximate, if  they do not exceed, three-quarters of a  million dollars a year, or about one-  sixtieth of the whole revenues of the  Dominion.  " Your petitioners therefore feel that  on representation of the facts, and  making due allowance for the rapid  development of the district, they are  not asking too much in requesting you  to cause an amendment to be made to  the pending. Redistribution of Seats  Bill providing for the election of a  member of the House of Commons for  that portion of the Yale-Cariboo electoral district comprised- within the  limits of the district of Kootenay at  the next general election."  British Columbia Mines.  British Columbia is gradually coming into its own as a mining country.  The work done in the past two or three  years has given the investing world a  glimpse of its capabilities and attention is being- more and more turned  upon it. The recently published report  of the Minister of Mines has attracted  widespread notice in the British market as well as here. The Saturday  Review, for instance, after noting the  way in which the Yukon placer mines  for a while overshadowed the quartz  mines of British Columbia, remarks  that "those in a position to know,  have long been aware that British  Columbia: is probably destined to be  one of the largest mineral producers of  the world." The Saturday goes on to  observe that " the most important  event of the past year in British  Columbia was undoubtedly the opening  of the Crow's Nest branch of the  Canadian Pacific Railroad, which, ,by  bringing the coal of the Crow's Nest-  district within easy distance of the  Kootenay mining district, will exercise  a most important influence on this  years production of the various  minerals. Hitherto coal for the mining districts of British Columbia has  been brought from Vancouver, and the  cost has therefore necessarily been  prohibitive except  in   the  case of the  richestjpropositions. The report gives  figures which show the enormous difference the Crow's Nest Pass Railway  will make in the cost of mining and  smelting. Coal from Vancouver costs  at Nelson $10 per ton, $5.25 of which is  due to the freight charges. Now ex7  cellent coal from Crow's Nest can be  bought at Nelson for $5.75 per ton, the  freight being only $2.26, whilst coke at  Hie same place for smelting purposes  can be bought for $9 per ton."  Passing on to the output of the mines  which will be aided by the new coal  supply, the Saturday Review notes  the satisfactory increases in all except  the silver-lead ores, which have suffered from the low price of silver, and,  touching on the great increase in copper production for 1898, 2,000,000  pounds more than in 1897, remarks  that the American copper combination  will have to take British Columbia's  production into serious consideration  in its calculations. The gold- increases are noted with great satisfaction, and in conclusion The Saturday  observes that " we do not know any  country which at the present time  bffers to the speculative investor such  excellent prospects of making large  profits as British Columbia, provided  always of course that care is taken to  invest on 13- in such1 undertakings as  are conducted by responsible and  reputable people."���Globe.

Kettle River Valley Railway.  The following letter explains itself.  It is addressed to the editor of the  Toronto Globe, and appears in a recent  issue of that journal:  Some time ago the Globe published a  statement that the withdrawl of the  Corbin application was " the result of  an understanding entered into between  the Grand Trunk and Canadian  Pacific Railway companies and Messrs.  Hill, arid D. C. Corbin. in whose interest the measure of last Year was  introduced." This is incorrect,.so far  as Mr. Corbin is concerned. The bill  of last year was applied for by Mr.  Corbin alone. Mr. Hill has not; nor  had any other person or corporation,  except the company controlled by Mr.  Corbin, any interest whatever in the  matter. The application which was-  before the House during the present  session was made on behalf of Mr.  Corbin individually. No other person  or company was in any way concerned  in the proposition. The only reason  for the withdrawal of the bill this year  is that Mr. Corbin was advised from  Ottawa that owing to the influence of  the C. P. R. it would not pass the  Railway committee. The simple fact  is that without the support of the  Government it is impossible to successfully.oppose the Canadian Pacific  in the House. As we were unable to  obtain that aid, and, moreover, had  reason to believe that certain members  of the administration would actively  oppose the bill, Mr. Corbin, much  against his will, was obliged to retire  from the field, or submit to a certain  and overwhelming defeat. Thus for  the secorld time his pioposition to  build at his own expense a competing  railway in the Boundary district has  been refused. It is not likely that the  attempt will again be made either by  Mr. Corbin or by any other independent person or corporation for many  years to come. It may, therefore.be  taken that the policy of Parliament is  to permit the Canadian Pacific to exclusively control the transportation  business'in one of the richest mining  districts in America. E.

Ottawa, June 7���Sir Hibbert Tupper  today reviewed the case of Judge Spinks  of British Columbia, declaring that the  judge was persecuted for political reasons, and there was never any shadow  of truth for the way he had been  treated. . He said that Messrs. Morrison and Bostock were largely to blame  in the matter. In conclusion he moved  a resolution that the action of the government therein was ill considered and  injurious to the position, usefulness,  and influence of the judiciary, and  involved a scandalous waste of public  money.  Solicitor-General Fitzpatrick said  that the investigation had vindicated  Judge Spinks and restored public confidence in him, and therefore the money  was well spent.  Messrs. Morrison and Bostock disclaimed all responsibility for formulating complaints against Judge Spinks,  and said they had only done their duty  in asking an investigation. There  were glad the judge had been fully  vindicated.  The resolution was voted down.  Goupil & Holden, signwriters, painters, paperhangers, etc., etc., etc.  CORYELL'S MAP, Price $1.25.
