Editor, Boundary Creek Times:  a Sir,���������I have heard rumors to the effect that  other persons were interested in the pre-emption recently staked by me, and in justice to  them I wish to inform you that same is quite  untrue, and further, that no one in Greenwood  is interested direct^- or indirectly.���Very respectfully yours, J.

AST   WEEyK,    a    few    enterprising    individuals,  I , emulating,  no  doubt, the  brilliant  example   set  Jjj, ^    them by the Greenwood ." jumping^ jacks," staked  a pre-emption over the newly laid off townsite of  Fairview. It is a debatable question which���considered  from the standpoint of athletics���performance, that of the  " jumper " at G-reenwood or of his rivals at Fairview is the  most noteworthy. The Greenwood feat was certainly the  more difficult on account of the depth of the snow, and the  Fairview athletes had probably less to "stake" on the  the chance of making a " record." It is understood, however, that upon the next occasion of international games at  Olympia, the world's champion exponents bf.: the long and  hig-h jump will be obliged, if they wish to keep their laurels,  to first show their ability to follow a true fiss(h)ure lead.  Jte.     ^Y6-   * *�����*���  -'tv  'AC  The promoters of the International Co-operative Mining  Company, capital stock $10,000,000, owning two properties  in Boundary valued by the vendors some few weeks ago at  respectively two hundred and fifty and one hundred dollars,  are dissatisfied with their consulting engineer. This gentleman was asked to prepare a report upon the camps in which  the two prospects owned by the International Co-operative  Mining Company were situated. He complied with the request, but most inconsiderately failed to mention that the  principal and largest leads running throug-h the principal  and most important claims in the vicinity, all trended in  the direction of the International Co-operative Company's  two prospects. For this omission, the unhappy local consulting- mining engineer will probably be given the sack���  the only asset the International Co-operative Mining Company can, perhaps, part with at the present time without  serious inconvenience.  Ate.  While we can in all  sincerity  congratulate  our  contemporary the Grand Forks Miner upon  the decidedly  marked  improvement of late in its  style  and  general   appearance,  we would at the same time add a word of warning- against  the folly .of exaggeration.    There, is  a  natural  tendency  perhaps, throughout the mining  districts  of  the  Province  on the part of townsite owners and others to " boom " their  properties, and  as  a  result  the  truth  is,, in   many cases,  either ignored or so  twisted  out  of  shape  that  it  is  past  all    recognition.    While   at  first  booming-   methods   in   a  measure may possibly succeed, in the long run they  generally have a boomerang effect.    The class of people  attracted most by exaggerated reports of prosperity   are   " un-em-  ployed"  seeking,   or  pretending  to  seek for, work.    It is  needless to say an increase to the population of the  district  from   an  influx  of  this  kind   is  not  at present desirable.  How circumstances alter cases was  strikingly  exemplified  the other day.    A question was asked in the House concerning the population of Grand Forks.    The Attorney-General  replied stating that there were eight hundred  people  resid- -,  ing within the  limits  of  the  proposed  municipality;   Mr.  Cotton thereupon read a paragraph from  the Miner  which  fixed the population at  five hundred.    A few  days  later  a-'  petition  against  the  incorporation  was  addressed  to  the  Government, wherein it was mentioned that the population  did not exceed three hundred.    And in the  last  statement,  we fancy, will the truth be found !  *5fe     iV*     -=5!��-  W     ���sJP'.   -*ft*    '   ���  In view of the many applications that are being-  made to  the Provincial legislature  this  session  for  special  water  privileges, it is to be hoped that before granting any   charters the Government will at  least  see  the  advisability  of  taking precautions to protect municipalities���now  existing  and hereafter to be formed���from the  greed that  so  often  goes hand-in-hand with monopoly of any kind.    A measure  should be enacted at  once,   whereby  a  municipality  shall  have the right, if  need  be,   to  purchase  from  a  company  owning and controlling the local water supply,   their  plant  and  system;   not  at  the  usually   exorbitant   price,   from  which there is seemingly no appeal, fixed by the  company,  but at a figure to be decided upon  by  a  qualified  board of  arbitration.    |Of course men who  construct works  for  the  purpose of supplying water and,light to  a town  of recent'  growth, where the possibilities of  the  investment  proving  remunerative are dubious, deserve to  be  well  recouped  if,  just when the, venture has proved a financial  success,   they  are compelled to sell, whether they want to or not,  to  the  municipal  government.    But  past  experience  has  taught  that the majority of those who obtain valuable water privileges in the vicinity of towns rarely, risk money or anything  else in the  construction  of  works,   preferring  rather,the.  " cinch " methods of profit-making- by later on  compelling  the municipality or city to  purchase the- monopoly.    Thus  Vancouver was forced to buy froma company at  an   exorbitant figure an utterly inadequate, water system.    An appeal was made to . the  courts  withou\ avail, ��� the  company,  adhering- to their price  and  even  refusing-  to  allow  their  books to be inspected.    An  attempt was  also  made  by  a  company holding a  charter to  supply  water to' Vernon, to  sell their right to the city, for   a  large  sum.  " According- .to  the terms of their charter, work was  to  be  commenced  by,  the company within a specified time ; a few.days before the  time expired a quantity,of drift wood  and gravel was. piled  across the outlet  of the  lake,  representation, being-  made  that work on the  company's  dam  had  been started I    Recently the. new  Nelson  corporation  had  a  narrow  escape  from being obliged to purchase a worthless  system fronr a  local company having a monopoly of the water supply. The  strong- feeling in all sections  of  the  Province  against the  wholesale.giving away of natural resources to greedy speculators, has already borne fruit, a government measure having being introduced in the legislature tending to  conserve  to public use all unrecorded water.   The g-overnment will in  future charge rent for  water privileges; water  cannot  be  had without using-, and if wasted  the  record  will   be  cancelled ; municipalities are given power to obtain a good water supply for present or  anticipated  use; companies  supplying- power or light must deal fairly with   the public, and  their charges, fares, etc., must be submitted to the lieuten-  ant-governor in council for approval.  ''���$!������ $1    $* ���'   ���  ?l&      "fit"       tR"  It is very disappointing to find that after all the expense  incurred by the government in appointing another county  court judge for Kootenay, for the purpose of relieving Judge  Spinks of part of his too onerous duties, the learned gentleman would seem to indicate, by his unpunctuality in holding court at the specified times advertised, that he is still  overburdened with work. May we sugg-est to Judge Spinks  the advisability, when there are so many unemployed seeking work, of hiring a deputy (he could get a man for a dollar  a day and board) to sit on the bench  on  court days, while  His Honor attended to the more pressing work of looking-  after his mining interests. Such a course would at least be  appreciated by those now inconvenienced by the Judge's un-  punctuai habits. In all seriousness, however, if Judg-e  Spinks finds it impossible to hold court at any place on the  day advertised, he should see that sufficient notice is given  to litig-ants and lawyers, and thereby save them the annoyance and expense consequent upon his unpunctuality. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  MINING NOTES.  Application will be made by owners  next week of the Helen for a crown  grant.  On Tuesday the new steam hoist was  installed and started to work on the  Jewel. The shaft is now down 100 feet  on the property.  Archie Connors is doing- the assessment on the Silver Plume, in Summit  camp. This claim adjoins the Dmma,  and it is thougvht the Homestake lead  can be traced on to the g-round.  Mr. Germaine purchased this week  a half interest'in the Nug-g-et, adjoining- the Gold Drop and Snowshoe, in  Greenwood camp, from W. Shaw. The  Nug-g-et, from its location, should  prove a valuable property.  The tunnel which is now in over 30  feet on the Great Hesper, in Smith's  camp, is well mineralized for all the  distance. This week, however, a body  of clean ore was struck carrying-, fine  grained g-alena, blende and copper and  iron pyrites. The . claim's prospects  are very promising-.  The work that is being done on the  Rob Roy, adjoining- the No. 7, in Central camp, by Alex. Wallace is showing- up a fine body of steel g-alena ore.  It is the intention to carry the shaft,  which is now down 40 feet, to . a depth  of 100 feet and drift. When this is  carried out there is no reason why the  Rob Roy should not prove to be as. the  No. 7 is now known to be.  Jim Cunningham has single-handed  already succeeded in sinking- a vertical  shaft to a depth of 17 feet on. the Remainder, in Summit camp ; and although the process of climbing- up and  down a ladder to empty a.heavy bucket  of ore is anything- but an easy task, he  intends to continue sinking- several,  feet further, en?ourag-ed by the very  promising: showing- in the shaft, the  bottom of which is all cin ore, copper  predominating. He also recently ran  a tunnel for 30 feet on another claim,  the Columbus, in Summit camp.  A Big Offer for the Gold Drop.  Mr. I^ewis Hind returned on Wednesday from Rossland and Vancouver and  reports   that   the  greatest  interest  is  manifested by people of both places in  Boundary   Creek.      In  Vancouver  he  was informed by one of  the  owners of  the Gold Drop, Greenwood camp,   that  an offer of $200,000 for the property had  been   made   to   the   syndicate.     This  story was subsequently  confirmed  by  Mr. Geo. Turner who, it will be remembered, superintended the  development  work on the claim last year.    Mr. Turner   said   that  three  offers  had  been  made   to  the  syndicate  for  the  Gold  Drop,   one  of  which  represented  ten  times the amount of the sum paid  out  oti the  property���about  $20,000.    This  offer was based on the  results  of  the  diamond drilling, and from a report of  an expert who examined the   property  last fall.    Mr. Turner  very  much  regretted that the syndicate had not purchased   the  Monarch,   as   he  strongly  recommended them to do, but the  reason was to be attributed to one or  two  heavy losses  sustained  by  the  syndicate in Cariboo and the Slocan.  There was a great demand in Vancouver for the Anaconda Commercial  Club's pamphlet descriptive of Boundary Creek, of which Mr. Hind had a  limited number to distribute.  We wish to   notify   our   Patrons   and   the   Public  generally that we are receiving New Goods   every   day,  and we are now carrying a full and complete stock of  Staple and Fancy Groceries  at  prices  that  will  astonish  you,  eMHO^tOOMCM^Ma^M*  Your favorite brands,  "XXXX," "Strong   Baker's,"   and  " Economy,"    Something you have all been wanting.  aSft     *1fs.     *V*  ���Sil?

Propper and wife came  over from Grand Forks on Tuesday, to  participate in the masquerade ball.  Mr. J. J. Caulfield this week bought  Mr. Powell's interest in Rendell &  Co.'s general merchandise business.  Messrs. Miller Bros, have built a  sidewalk in front of their store on Copper street.  Among- the arrivals on Monday was  Capt. Ralston, mineral locator for the  "Iron Duke."  Mr. Ostroski, of the Greenwood City  Mercantile Company, recently won a  suit in San Francisco involving a sum  of $100,000.  A slight mistake occurred in our last  week's issue : Mr. F. B. Smith was the  locator, of the Peterson rauch, not  Messrs. Smith and Hodgson.  The Times is requested'to announce  that an effort will be made to organize  a chess club in. Greenwood. Players  of the royal game are asked to leave  their names at this office.  Mr. J. Powell, who has been suffering for some time past from rheumatism, left on Thursday for the Harrison  Hot Springs, having sold out his interest in Rendell & Co.'s store.  The contractors of the Midway irrigation ditch have at present only some  twelve men working, but intend directly the snow goes off to increase their  Jorce to between sixty and eighty men.  It is stated that Mr. Heinze's branch  line between Trail and Robson is practically the first section of the Columbia  & Western .road towards Boundary  creek, it being the intention to build"  the next section by way of Dog creek.  It is to be regretted that a man of  heretofore unblemished character, such  as Mr. 10. P. Suydam, should be guilty  of the heinous offence of "jumping."  Mr. Suydam on Monday jumped 'part  of Mr. Fisher's townsite pre-emption  and has menaced to shoot anyone who  attempts to evict him,.  Mr. W. Miller, formerly of Rossland,  has opened a tailor's shop on Copper  street and is now prepared to take  orders. Judging from the large orders  secured by representatives of eastern  tailoring firms who have visited the  district, a local sartorial establishment  should be well patronised.  The assayers in town are making  great preparations for an anticipated  busy season's work; Mr. Gibbs has  just received two new furnaces and a  very beautiful pair of balances made  by Oertling, of Ivondon. Messrs. Guess  Bros, have fitted up their laboratory  with cabinets for specimens and shelves  for chemicals, the place having a most  workmanlike appearance.  Mr. F. Dittmer, who returned last  week after a somewhat protracted absence in Spokane, states that a visitor  to that city from Boundary Creek has  now to confront the difficulty of escaping the attentions of anxious enquirers  desirous of obtaining information on  all matters relative to this district. He  anticipates that all sorts and conditions  of men from Spokane and other Washington cities will try their fortune in  Boundary this summer, but fears that  a great majority of the immigrants  will be men seeking work, and that the  same undesirable state of affairs will  then be experienced here as in Rossland at the present time.

LAMB EDITOR  W.   J.    HARBER MANAGER  Subscription, $2.00 per Year, in Advance.  SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1S97.  THE   MOTHER   LODE.  Final Payment Made���An Immense Showing-  Ledge Two Hundred Feet Wide.  On Wednesday the Boundary Mines  Company made the  final payment  to  Messrs.    McCormick,     McCuaigf     and  Schuiield of $4,000 (the  purchase  price  being- $16,000), on the Mother Lode  in  Deadwood camp. The company bonded  the claim last June ; a crosscut tunnel  was, started from the lime  contact  in  September,   and  after  20 feet of lime  had   been ' passed   throug-h,   ore   was  struck.    Incredible as it  may  appear,  from that date until now the  whole  of  the tunnel has been in  ore which   improved the. further  it  was penetrated ;  thus, as the tunnel has been driven for  222 feet, the ledg-e at this has proved to  be at least 200 feet wide,   and  yet  the  hanging- wall  has  not  been  reached.  During- Mr/ Keffer's absence   at  Rossland two weeks ag-o, the men  failed to  continue   the   tunnel    in     a    directly  straig-ht line, g-oing- off  slig-htly   in   a  diag-onal direction.    This may account  for a possible four feet  in   estimating-  the width of the  ledg-e.    Nevertheless  it can be authentically stated that the  tunnel will show the ledg-e  to   be  over  200 feet  wide.    The  walls  are  nearly  perpendicular, dipping-  perhaps  20  to  25 degrees to the   east, which   in  min-  eralog-ical science is evidence   that the  ledg-e is permanent and not a  mere deposit or overflow.    Thus   it  is  safe  to  assume that the Mother L,ode  will  be  one of  the  greatest,   if  not. the  very  greatest, copper-gold producing- mines  on the continent  at  no  distant  date.  What the ore assays cannot  be  ascertained, but it is known   to  carry   g-ood  values.     Moreover,  judg-ing-  from  assays recently made of ores  of  almost  identical   appearance   from   adjacent  claims, the Mother Lode ore is of g-ood  shipping-   grade.      If    there  was   any  question of the extraordinary   mineral  resources of the  Boundary   Creek  district, the showing- on the  Mother L/ode  and on one or two other properties that  have been opened up in the camp would  be quite sufficient to verify  the   assertion.    It will be a very short time now  before Boundary   Creek  will  take  its  place in history   as  the  most remarkable g-old and copper bearing- reg-ion on  the f ace of the globe.  SELF-EXPLANATORY.  The following- letter from the president of the Spokane Falls & Northern  R'y Co. is sufficiently explicit to require no introduction :  Spokane, March 15th, 1897.  H. Mortimer Lamb, Esq.,  Boundary Creek Times :  Dear Sir,���Answering- your letter of  the 6th, which has been delayed owing-  to my absence, I have to say : I have  so far carried out my undertaking's in  reg\ard to extensions of our line into  the upper country, about as I planned  in 1893. I have always had your district in view. I have great faith in its  future, but am hardly in a position to  say definitely, at the present time, just  when construction on the proposed  road will commence. It is my intention, as soon as the  season   and  roads  will permit, to visit the principal points  in the Boundary Creek country and  take a look at your mines ; and when I  do so, I shall hope to have the pleasure  of meeting- you.���Yours truly,  D. C. Corbin,  President.  The Citizens' Committee Meeting.  In the hurry of g-etting- out  our  last  issue caused by the extra matter which  at the last moment had to be  inserted,  the explanation   of  the   action   of  the  . Citizens'   Committee  with  reg-ard    to  the Midway shooting-  case  was  somewhat   inaccurately   reported.    It   was  stated that the Committee had decided  to take further steps in  the matter  on  account of  Mr.   McMynn's  refusal  to  compensate Mr. Hood.   This, however,  is hardly the case.    The point with the  Committee, who thoroughly  represent  the community, is the question of justification.    As Mr. McMynn has  practically pleaded justification  the  Committee decided that it was their duty to  see that the matter was carried  to  the  courts and a judicial decision obtained.  As far as Mr. Hood is  personally  concerned he has his recourse by bringing-  a civil action ag-ainst Mr. McMynn for  damages.    But this  does "not  concern  the public ; the question that does concern the public is, under what   circumstances   (if  any)   can   a  constable  be  justified in shooting- at a man  neither  caug-ht in the act of committing-nor accused of any  crime ?    The  gentlemen  acting- upon the Committee are  undertaking from, it must  be  emphatically  repeated,   a   sense   of duty,   whether  wisely or otherwise may be afterwards  perhaps discussed, an onerous and  unpleasant task, and  are,   therefore,   entitled   to  respect.   *Tn view of   the   utterly baseless attacks that have recently been aimed at  the  Committee,   this  explanation is due them.  ANACONDA   NOTES.  Mr. Kelyer, foreman at the No. 7  mine, has gone to Spokane on a brief  holiday.  Mr. Keffer intends building a large  and, judging from the architectural  plan, comfortable cottage in Anaconda  shortly. Several other buildings are  also likely to be built in the town directly spring opens. ���.  The regular meeting of the Commercial Club was held as usual, but owing  to the non-attendance of the secretary,  whose wife is seriously ill, after the  reports of the several committees had  been presented an adjournment was  made until Wednesday next.  George Macartney, a well known  miner who has been working in the  Victoria mine at Camp McKinney, arrived at Anaconda on Sunday. Speaking of the Victoria he said it was " the  adjective, adjectivest property in the  adjective camp." A recommendation  which should certainly help to sell the  Company's stock when it is put on the  market.  p-ORBES   M.   KERBY,  .   Assoc. Mem. Can. Soc.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  TUESDAY'S  DANCE.  It must be confessed that it  becomes  a trifle wearisome in making   a report  upon every dance that takes  place   in  the district when  one  has  never  any  alternative but to state that the  affair  was a success.    For the sake of variety  it would be almost a relief if some one  would give a dance whereat the  music  would be played out of time and  tune,  the dancers  look  out  of  temper,   and  the supper execrable.    Some  of  us  at  least would enjoy  the  novelty.    However, the  masquerade  ball,   given  by  the proprietors of the Pioneer hotel  on  the  eve  of  St.   Patrick's  day, was in  colloquial language, " away up."    The  temporary hall hastily erected  on  the  floor of Messrs. Sansom  &  Holbrook's  new   building  answered   all  purposes  admirably, being  spacious  enough  to  admit of three sets dancing at the same  time without'discomfort.    Some of the  costumes were excellent  and,  what  is  more,   the  characters  sustained  their  parts.     Mr.   Georg-e    Seymour,   as   a  sandwich-man, was really capital, and  he looked to the life the pitiable object  that may at any time be seen standing  about  street   corners  of  large   cities,  with   "sprung"  knees,   toes  showing-  through dilapidated boots, and with an  expression of countenance half pathetic  but wholly imbecile.    The local "hits"  printed on his placard were also good.  Mr. Fisher, who was attired as a nurse  carrying   a  very  realistic, baby,  was  well  costumed.    Most   of   the   ladies'  dresses were picturesque  but  the majority were not sug-gestive of any  particular characters. The following were  among those present:,  Mrs. Wilkins... School girl.  Miss Wilkins Housemaid.  Mr. Wilkins Grandpa.  Mr. J. Fisher .��� Nurse.  Mr.  Seymour ; Sandwich-man.  Mrs.  Se3Tmonr Scotch  lassie.  Mrs. Martin School girl.  Mr. Lind..l Clown.

At midnight the guests partook of  supper in the Pioneer hotel, covers being laid for over a hundred people.  The cooking left nothing to be desired,  oyster soup, lobster salad, cold roast  chicken, ham and beef, confectionaries  and dessert comprising the menu. The  dancing continued until 4 in the morning, and thanks to the untiring efforts  of Messrs. Munroe and Holbrook, the  floor managers, the enjoyment never  flagged. .      '  The Golden Cariboo.  Three gold bricks from the Cariboo  (Camp McKinney) mine are now lying  in the vaults of the Traders' bank at  Spokane. The bricks are worth about  $9,000. After paying its last dividend  the Cariboo still had $15,000 on hand  and there is therefore a laxge enoug-h  sum in the Company's treasury to pay  if necessary two divile:i:":s in advance.  ^\^&^&^&^&^&&t&^&&\  ####  W.

Bealey & Co., has rented an office from Mr. Hart, on Government street, for the  transaction of the  firm's business until the  weather  conditions are more favorable for building  when a larg-e structure will be  erected  on the site  purchased  by  Mr.  Bealey  some months ago.   For the present the  firm will devote more attention to working- up a fire insurance, real estate and  g-eneral brokerag-e business  in  Greenwood than to banking-, as the difficulty  and risk attending  the  transportation  of currency under  existing-  conditions  is   too  great  to   admit  of   a  banking-  business being- carried on  on   a  larg-e  scale.      Speaking-   of  Greenwood .Mr.  Naden remarked that in his opinion all  the indications are favorable  that  the  town   will   ere   long* become  of even  greater importance  as  a  mining-  and  commercial  centre  than  Rossland  itself.    He went to Rossland  two  years  ag-o, when that town was a very insignificant place indeed, and after watching- the marvellous growth of the  tiny  hamlet to the town only second to Vancouver in population on  the mainland,  he is  prepared  to  witness   the  future  rapid developments on Boundary creek  with stoical.calm.   Mr. Naden has purchased a. lot near the  hospital and will  build a residence thereon shortly. Mrs.  Naden will probably join her  husband  here in the next week or so.  FAIRVIEW   CAMP.  The mining- activity at Fairview continues unabated. The names of some  75 men are on the pay-rolls and the  camp receives every week visits from  experts representing- foreign capital.  , The Morning- Star mine is shortly to  be examined.by engineers acting- for  an English syndicate who recently  made the highest bid for the Rossland  War Eagle���the Ivondon & B.C. Gold  Fields Co. This property is one of the  best free-milling propositions in the  camp, the fact, of the present owners  having at one time rented the Strath-  eyre Co.'s mill and after a few weeks  run cleaned up nearly $60,000 in gold,  being well known.  Mr. Dixon, manager of the Smuggler, who held a bond on the Stem-  winder, owned by Fred. Gwatkin and  Geo. Sheehan, was two days late in  making a second payment on the property, and thus forfeits the money already deposited.  A big strike was made on the Tinhorn last week, one of the properties  owned by Messrs. Dier & Davidson. A  tunnel was started on the claim from a  big outcrop of barren quartz, and run  for some distance, when a fine ledge  ten feet wide on blue quartz, carrying  high values, was encountered.  Strike on the D, A.  Some. very fine specimens of ore  showing native silver were brought  down from the D.A., one of the Boundary Creek M. & M. Co.'s properties,  on Saturday. From the starting of the  tunnel, which is now iii between 30 and  40 feet, the ledge has sensibly widened  and has now running with it a pay  streak six inches wide, containing high  values both in silver and gold. The  ore at present being mined on this  claim would pay to ship, even under  existing transportation conditions.

The sitting of the County court at  Midway was postponed from Monday  to Friday.   ,  We are requested to state that Mr.  Fisher has withdrawn his name from  the citizens'committee.  It is reported from Grand Forks that  at a meeting held there this week for  the purpose of  nominating  municipal  officers, it was found that no five  residents of the town could be named  who  were eligible for aldermen, and that  Mr. John Manly alone had the necessary qualifications for the   mayoralty.  Mrs. Robt. Wood left on Thursday  for Armstrong, to meet her husband  on his return from Victoria.  Mr. W. Forrest,'a well-known Cariboo mining man, arrived in Greenwood  on Thursday and intends visiting the  camps of the district.  . The public, school was. closed, this  week, owing to the prevalence of sickness among the children. Two or  three cases of chicken-pox are reported.  Profs. Voorhees and Davis will give  a- grand concert at the Commercial  Club's hall, Anaconda, Monday evening, March 22nd, and give a. social  dance, af��er the entertainment.  Several bets involving large amounts  were.tnade in Greenwood on the result  of the. Corb.ett-FitzSimmoh prize fight,  the hews of FitzSimmon's victory was  received .yesterdayijand caused much  excitement.  Messrs. R. J. Bealey & Co., of Rossland and Greenwood; have incorporated  as the "Bealey Investment and Trust  Company," with- the. following as  stock-holders: R. J. Bealey, Martin  King and Howard S. Wallace, of Rossland ; Geo. R. Naden, of Greenwdod,  and Geo. W. Richardson, of Nelson.  The capital stock is $50,000.  Irishmen (and otherwise) celebrated  St. Patrick's day,becomingly on Wednesday at Greenwood. Many, however, are now firmly of the impression  that when their patron saint banished  the snakes from the'I^riierald Isle the  reptiles immigrated to the banks of  Boundary creek where they settled  down and lived, happily ever after.  The effects will probably pass off in a  few days.  Upon information laid by Const. EH-  kins, O. Sandford, of Boundary Falls,  was summoned to appear before Mr.  G. T. Hodgson, J.P. on Tuesday to  answer to the charge of assaulting Ah  Sing, a chinaniin employed as cook at  the Boundary Falls hotel. As the evidence was conflictory and it also was  shown that the Heathen was an "ag-  gravatin' begg*ar," the case was allowed to be settled out of eour't; Sanford  paying costs.  Mr. W. A.   Carlyle,   the   Provincial  Mineralogist, writes to The  Times  to  say that he hopes to visit the Boundary  Creek district in the early part  of the  coming summer, but  he  is .dependent  for orders from the Minister  of  Mines  who has yet to decide what Mr. Carlyle  is to undertake   this  year.     Mr.   Carlyle says : <CI am very desirous of seeing your part of the country and I read  with great  interest everything  I  can  find concerning  your  mines  and  ore-  bodies.    I have a map of the  southern  part of Yale now printed on which will  be put further details after I  have  examined that region.    In the annual report for 1896 now nearly  ready for  issue Mr. Fowler has a short  sketch on  Boundary Creek.  Yesterday niorning two prominent,  residents of .the town were charged before J. Kerr, J. P. and G. T. Hodgson,  J. P. with being drunk and disorderly  and with obstructing and resisting  Provincial Constable XDlkins in the execution of his duty. The accused  pleaded guilty to both charges, and as  Constable lOlkins did not wish to press  the matter, the bench imposed a fine in  each case of $10 and costs, at the  same time warning the prisoners that  to obstruct an officer in the discharge  of his duty was a very serious offence  and they might congratulate them-  selve.s upon  being , so  leniently dealt  with. In view of the fact that from all  accounts there were certain extenuating circumstances in favor of the pris  oners names  have  in  purposely omitted.  this  case   been  MINING NOTES.  The Republic and None Such shafts  have been emptied of water and sinking is now well under way.  Mr. McClennan has taken an option  on the Keno, Wellington camp, owned  by F. McMann and J. Myers for $15,000.  Some more specimens were brought  down during the week taken. from the  D.A. tunnel. The specimens showed  not only native silver but large atoms  of virgin gold. The paystreak which  runs with the main ledge as now seen  in the tunnel is well worth going far  to examine.  The. Boundary Mines Company have  reduced the working force on the No. 7  to three men for the meantime, the  question as to whether * the claim- was  likely to prove a mine having- been  finally and satisfactorily'settled in the  affirmative. A drift is now beinjg run  along the ledge and a magnificent body  of ore lias been shown up. A distance  in the drift of 140 feet from the bottom  of the shaft was reached., this week.  Thus considerably over 400 feet of drifting has been done on the property  at^ the 140-foot level since the commencement of the winter.
