Considerable Development Work Will Be Done  This Summer���A Large Number of Boundary Creek Mines Controlled by One Corn-  pay���Good Assay Returns.  To the. north of Greenwood, about  eig-iit miles distant from the city, is  Pass Creek camp, regarding- which  little has been said, but which will  stand watching-- during- the summer..  Active preparations are being made to  develop some of the large bodies of ore  which can be easily traced on the surface. Trie camp is reached by following- the Summit road to Eholt and  turning to the right from Rendell's  store. The ores in the camp are generally a mixture of pyrrhotite, chalco-  pyrite and ' pyrites in large ' bodies.  Values in copper and gold have been  secured at the surface, values which  fully justify development upon a large  scale. Among the best-known properties iii'" this' 'camp is the Rambler,'  owned, by the Everett and Spokane  company, of 'whicli'A. G. Davis is the  local director. '.Mr. Davis aiid another  man have been working on the property during the past two months.  They ran a. 40-foot tunnel to crosscut  the ledge. The tunnel is in pre all the'  way and the -wall''has not yet been  reached. Work on this property will  be continued during the summer. Mr.  T. W. Gillette of Fairhaven, the president of the company, is expected in  the city in a few weeks.  Karl Nelson left to-day for Pass  Creek to do some work oh the Golden.  Giant and Northern Belle." Mr. Nelson  and Bobby Robinson  have done con-  ���; siderable work on these"properties', in-"  eluding   a 90-foot   tunnel.    An   assay  ; from the surface of the  Golden  Giant  ��� gave $16 in gold and 4 per cent, copper.  James Estep will   work   the   No.  3  : during the summer.    Clifford  and his :  partner will work the Side Hill Star.    '  Mr. Davis, Who came down from  Pass Creek Thursday, had with him a  rich-looking sample, taken from a  property   which   is   said  to   be under  ��� option to an English syndicate. Mr.  Davis did not learn the name of the  owner, but simply tookcthe sample off  the dump on "his way out. He stated-  that considerable work had been done  and there appeared to be a yery wide  iedge. Judging from the appearance  of the sample-it would run high..in  copper.       .  A   BIG   COMPANY.  Mr. Hal!, of the firm of Hall,. Rice &  Co.,  has   reached Toronto. ' The   Toronto World has this to say regarding .  his business in" the'east:  "Mr. W.,M. Hall, a  former .Toronto  barrister, and now of' Greenwood j  B. '  C, is visiting in the city and will take  in Montreal, before he - returns to the .  west-    Mr. Hall's object in   comihgto  Toronto is to place a quantity of stock  in a proposition   known   as  the  Vancouver and Boundary  Creek  Developing and  Mining  company.    This corporation     is    capitalized   at   2,000,000  shares,   with  1,750,000  shares   in   the  treasury, a  portion of which   he pro- '  poses to sell at par for. purposes of de- -  velopment.

Mr. Hall's associates are Robert Wood,  ex-mayor of Greenwood; Thos. Ellis,  the cattle king of Okanagan valley ;  A. H. Wade, postmaster of Okanagan  Landing; Clement Vacher, of Paris,  and J. W. Hugh Wood of England." q  . It may be v stated that the thirty  claims mentioned include all of Mr.  Wood's mining interests. Among,  these, are several promising Central  camp properties and the mine near  Penticton; which.is being developed  under the superintendence of Clement  Vacher,  .  NOTES.  Harold  M. Daly, a son  of Hon.  T.  Mayne Daly, who has been in   the city  ��� for some   time, left  yesterday  to visit.  the properties of the  Okanagan Free  Gold company near  Oro, in   which his  ���'.' his father is heavily interested.  '���---_. Sydney M. Johnson, P. L. S., has  bonded two Canyon Creek properties  from Dan Stewart.! The properties,  which are known, as the Highland  Queen and Thunder Hill, are located  hear the Silver: Dollar. They contain  strong ledges of rich silver-gold ore.  The prospectors are busy men these ;  days. They are anxious to get to the  hills and are fitting out. Several of  them have already left' the city to do  assessment work and make new discoveries. A number of the old-time  prospectors are going to the West Fork  country.  Winnipeg stock has recently been in  great demand upon the Rossland mar-  "ket. "��� Last week several ..thousand  shares .changed . hands at 31 cents.  Considering the outlook at the, mine  ..this is a low.figure-for the stock, aiid jit  is safe to assert that it will reach the  half dollar mark within ; the next few  months.   ��� . . '".'.'*���  ' The real estate and mining'men of  the city held a meeting in Mowat &  Palmer's office on Tuesday evening for ���  the purpose of discussing ways and  . means ior the better protection of their  business. Those present decided upon  a uniform rate of commission upon all  sales.  A new boiler and. a big compressor  plant for the Winnipeg mine left Bossburg a few days ago. As the roads  are in a fairly good, condition,; the  plant should reach the mine in a short  ', time. Messrs. Beecher and Towle, who  were visiting the Winnipeg, left for  their home . in Grand Forks,; North  Dakota, a few days ago.  W. Guttridge, who returned from  England a few days ago after spending the winter there, left to-day for  Canyon creek, where he has some valuable mining interests. Mr. Guttridge  made arrangements for. considerable  English .capital to develop these  properties, and intends keeping several'  men employed during the summer.  General Charles's. Warren and Ross  Thompson have been in the district  for several days. They state that they  hxve no particular object in visiting  Boundary Creek, but as they are in.  close connection with the British  American corporation, it is safe to say .  they are spying the land with a view  to secure investments for this powerful company.  C. E. Race, of the firm of Kennedy,  Race & Cronyn, returned on Wednesday from Camp McKinney. Mr. Race  made arrangements for subdividing  the Kamloops claims recently bonded  by him. The Kamloops is near the  Cariboo, and not only possesses a  strong lead of free-milling ore, but the  surface rights are -valuable as a town-  site.  Fred Oliver, managing director of  the Morrison Mining company, reports  that the Morrison tunnel is in over 300  feet. Another 100 feet will bring the  tunnel under the shaft. The depth of  the tunnel will be 170 feet. A 70-foot  upraise will be run to connect with the  shaft. The use of steam drills in the  the tunnel makes it rather uncomfortable for the men who are practically working in a Turkish bath the  entire time, but when the tunnel and  upraise are completed, this difficulty  will be removed. Morrison stock  maintains its popularity in the Rossland and Spokane markets, and there  are daily enquiries for its purchase,  . f THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  I     H.    HALLETT.

The burning-of a negro in Georg-ia  by white people, the blowing- up of the  Bunker Hill mill with the connivance  of an organized body of men, and other  violent acts in the United States during- the past few weeks, seriously re-  fleet upon the administration of law  across tlie line. It would be absurd to  state'that the. citizens of the country  to the south of us are of a lower order  of intelligence than those on this side.  These outrages are the natural result  of a lax administration of the laws.  The people of Georgia who were responsible for the burning of a negro  minister would not have committed  the outrag-e had they a wholesome respect for the law and a strong- confidence in its proper administration. It  would be impossible to organize the  miners of the Cceur d'Alenes to commit acts of violence if they felt that  every act that was not in conformity  with law would be punished.  It is fortunate that on this side of  the line the people have supreme confidence in the rig-id enforcement of the  laws. Take the Kamloops murder case  for instance. An indian named Casi-  mir, in the most cold-blooded manner,  shot an inoffensive man named Philip  Walker. The murderer took to the  hills, but afterwards returned to the  chief's house on the reservation near  the city. A large crowd 'of excited  residents witnessed his arrest by the  officers of the law, but there was no  attempt to commit  violence.    Casiinir  was arrested, had a fair trial and was  sentenced to be hanged within the  space of ten days. No act of violence,  on the part of the people would have  more completely served the ends of  justice than the regular course which  was pursued.  The defects in the American sj-stem  will never be remedied until those  guilty of taking-the'law in their own  hands and doing acts of violence are  properly punished.- It is almost safe  to say that the perpetrators of the  Georgia outrage and the wreckers of  the Bunker Hill mill will go unpunished  The lyncher and dynamiter in Canada  would iiever be allowed to escape the  clutches of those entrusted with the  proper enforcement of the laws, hence  these individuals are; unknown in this  country.   ' ___1_ .'���'���. ���,  <  SEEKINC   A   REASON.  '���It' is   interesting   and ' amusing to  read   the   newspapers   and  learn   the  wonderful variety of causes which lead  to the abandonment of  the application  for  the  Corbin   charter.    Among-   the  reasons suggested is  the rather sordid  one that  Mr. Corbin  was paid  a substantial  sum   by   the C. P. R. to withdraw the   application.    It was also an-  nouncad   that Mr. Hill and Mr. Corbin  quarrelled and that the charter was an  impossibility   without -Mr.   Hill's   in-  .fluence.   Then  the  Grand Trunk Was  fixed  so  that   its  powerful   influence  could no  long-er  be  depended upon in  favor of the Corbin  charter.    There is  little or no truth in any of, the reasons  advanced.   There was very  little inducement   for   Mr.   Corbin   to   make  strenuous efforts to secure the charter.  The Corbin railway  would  have been  a benefit to the  country.   All  the  expense in connection with the construction   would have  been  borne  by Mr.  Corbin.    He  was  asking to confer a  benefit on the  people free of charge;  not   asking-   the. people to  put   their  money in an  enterprise solely for his  special   benefit.      Under  the   circumstances  why   should   a   private   individual  endure  the worry and expense  of lobbying-a bill  through the parliament of , Canada.    The whole system  of granting railway charters is wrong-.  One company   is  extensively  bonused  ' and   granted    unusual   privileges   to  build a road, and is sufficiently strong  to: successfully  burke   the   efforts'of  those who ask  for neither bonus nor  special privileges.    It is  impossible to .  secure a railway  charter without  the.  expenditure of a large sum of money,  without  resorting- to  all the artifices  and   expedients   of   the   professional  lobbyist.    The  interests pf   the community would be better served if railways could  be  built  without so much  red tape and tomfoolery.   There would  then be more railways and  fewer ap-.  plications for bonuses.  Situation Wanted.

A Good Force of Water for Fire Protection  Purposes.  The volunteer fire department had  an opportunity a few days ago for the  first time of testing the . hose recently  purchased from! the Gutta Percha'  Rubber company. It was discovered  that the rapidly rising water . of Twin  creek couldnnpt all escape underneath  the dam.and. that some, of ..it was com-,  ing* through: the water- maiu. The  hose was attached ' to the hydrant at  the end of the'pipe line and laid on  Greenwood street. The stream demonstrated clearly that with a good reservoir Greenwood possesses an excellent  force of water for fire protection purposes. A stream was thrown from  Greenwood street over the Barrett  block and across to the Windsor hotel.  Men are now engaged constructing a"  big tank near the dam.  The business portion of the city now  enjoys the advantage of a good water,  supply, plenty of first-class hose and the  most efficient and  enthusiastic volunteer fire department in the province.  IS   HE   OUR  OWN, JACK?  Private Harlan Has Distinguished Himself at  Manila.  A Spokesman-Review correspondent .  writing from Manila devotes considerable attention to the brave deeds of  Private Harlan of Company K. The  hero is doubtless none other than J. P.  Harlan, a Greenwood boy who gave up  assaying to go and fight in Manila.  The correspondent says :���   "Private Harlan of Company K,  whose work,as a scout in the last few  weeks has been very valuable, about  this time reported that considerable  ' Mauser fire was coming from a large  building north of the stream and about  ISO yards from the bridge. The building had been flying a French flag, and  up to this time had been under protection. As soon "as it was found in use  as a screen for sharpshooters, Harlan  was given permission to fire it. He  immediately waded the stream opposite  and disappeared ��� in the front door, a  hundred rifles covering the spot should  he need help. His first act on entering  was to fire several shots into the floor  above. These caused a furore among  the insurrectors, and no time did they  lose scrambling out of the rear windows. As soon as the fire was well  under way, he asked for a volunteer  squad to accompany him through a  large distillery located next door to  investigate what lay behind the rear  wall. As this wall was six feet high  and had to be climbed over, the . undertaking was a most meritorious one.  The squad that volunteered to go with  him on this perilous work was made up  from Company B, being led by Sergeant McGee of that Company. Quartermaster-Sergeant Taylor Hai-risi n  and Private George Scott of Company  A accompanied them. There was considerable anxiety among the watchers  as they disappeared from view, and  during the next few moments until  they were' he'ard from. The first sign  that game had  been  found  was   the  familiar yell followed by the rapid discharge of Springfields ;   then   a   bunch  of. about 25  Filipinos appeared on the  run   around   the  end  of   the   building  running  down   stream.    As they came  into view,   they   were  not  fired  on   at  first,   as   everyone expected our owri  men to follow them up and was  afraid  to shoot.     A few steps soon put them  out of range of our men should they be  following, and then they  were  paid  a  little  attention  by the squads located  in the neighbourhood, with  the  result,  that  they  changed  their minds about  escaping down   stream, , and precipitately retreated���what was left of them !'  Harlan, and his   men   meantime   had  their  attention fully occupied with another and larger bunch   of the  black-  devils.  ; These they had to use clubbed  guns on before they  could   be   induced  to  start off properly..��������� Once<st:irted, it  was easy though, as a volley or two in  their rear gave them the proper impetus to keep them moving  until  out of  sight.     Then this little band of heroes  began to think discretion was a  virtue"'  . not to be despised, and started out.   In  .the melee Privates Courtney,  Pinney,  and Ward of Company B were hit, the  former's  wound,   through  the,breast,;  proving'mortal, he dying later  in   the-  day.    The two'latter were.only slightly  hit.. .  In  coming  out the squad had to  scale the same Virall   as  going  ip.  and  carry  their wounded cqinrades along,  but they'd id it in gallant style.  Rich Placer Ground. .,..., , .  Mrs. J. Roy, who was in the citj* a  few days ago, had-several fine nuggets taken from the ranch near Boundary Falls. The gold was discovered in  the excavation marie for the railway  on a bench immediately above King  Fungus' placer ground. All the ground  in the vicinity has been staked. The  nuggets in Mrs. Roy's possession are  aii earnest of the fact that Mr. Ferguson's optimism regarding the richness  of the auriferous deposits along Boundary creek is well founded.  " Lost.
