E would again point out to the Hon. the Chief  Commissioner of I*ands and Works the folly of  the system in vogue at present of waiting until  the revenue is collected before anything is done  towards repairing* the roads in the rural districts. Directly  the winter season is over and the snow begins to melt, men  should be employed to keep the main highways open. Moreover, by following this practice, the yearly expense of  maintaining existing roads would be considerably lessened,  the work being much more effective���and hence cheaper���  when carried on in the spring. Take for instance the state  of affairs in Boundary now : roads impassable ; travel and  traffic reduced to its lowest possible measure ; men paying  stage fare and blaspheming the government because compelled to walk, horses having all they can manage to haul  empty vehicles, much less passengers, through the riiire.  If these were necessary evils they could be borne with fortitude, only increasing the fervency of the prayers for a  railroad; but when a fault can be remedied one expects to  see it done. Now it is by no means improbable that if  Boundary creek rises as high as is expected the briege between Anaconda and Boundary Ealls will be swept away  within the next few weeks, when all communication (mail  service included) from the Penticton direction will be cut  off!    Then, doubtless, measures will be taken.  Over the Summit the road is so bad that it has become  necessary to propose that the people of Boundary Creek  subscribe towards paying a force of men to make it passable. Yet the sum contributed last year from Boundary  Creek helped to swell the revenue of the province to a by no  means despicable extent. Under the circumstances it is  only reasonable to ask that a man be appointed���or the  extra duty might devolve upon one of the government  officials in the district���to see that the roads are kept in a  decent state of repair the year round. Sufficient funds  should be placed at the disposal of this official, so that he  would not be hampered on this account.  The idea has somehow become accepted on the " outside "  that Boundary Creek is a camp of low grade smelting propositions, and that consequently until th.e district has railway  facilities and smelters are  established,  investors  must  be  content to wait  for  returns  from  money  invested  in   the  camp.    While, of course, it is true that the  huge  bodies of  ore, of low grade value  as  compared  with  the  small rich  veins of the Slocan for instance, existing in   Boundary will  ere long���the date is not far off now���cause the fame of the  district to be heralded in every part of Europe and America.  At the present time  the fact should   be  better  advertised  that a proportionately fair number of the prospects on  Boundary Creek have ledges of high-grade ore which  can  be successfully treated by  concentration.    Even  to-day it  would pay the owners to ship ore from such  claims  as the  DA., Helen, Combination and several other properties in  Providence camp; while by the erection  of stamp mills in  Smith's camp the ores of the  Republic, Xast Chance and  Tunnel could be lucratively treated.    These claims  are referred to, be it understood, for the sake of example  alone,  for many more might be included in  the same  class.    We  would certainly suggest to  the B. C. Mining & Commercial  Association   the   advisability  of  sending samples  of  the  higher grade ores of the district to  (say)   Spokane,  placing  them on exhibition in the railroad stations or some other  public resort at that place,���railway  stations,  being  pecu  liarly suited for such purposes, in preference. If by thus  doing one man is induced to invest money in Boundary, the  small expense and trouble which the association would  incur in carrying out this suggestion would be repaid with  interest.  -4?  iMS.  The "Public Works I<oan Act," in its amended form has  become law ; nothing more can therefore be profitably said.  Nevertheless the government will one day realize the mistake of passing the obnoxious clause relative to the British  Pacific scheme in the face of the avowed opposition of a  great majority of the people on the Mainland.- The minority  in the House may, at any rate upon this question, be said  to have fairly represented the wishes of the people .of the  Province, and the thanks of his constituents are��due to Mr.  Graham for the insertion of the very important clause making the bona fide and continuous construction " of the road  from Penticton to Boundary Creek cempulsory within 15  months from the passage of the Act." Indeed Mr; Graham  would have limited the time to one year���surely a sufficient  period to give promoters to perfect their plans���had he been  allowed to do so.  But it may be safely predicted that during the next few  months either the V. V. & 10. Co. or theC.?tI?^rznigre likely  the former���-will take advantage pf the assistance offered  by ���the government. A railway line from Penticton, while  not designed to remedy the existing drawbacks from which  this district suffers in the way of lack of facilities for the  transportation of ores, will at least relieve the isolation of  its position and stimulate the development of its resources.  ���sji?  ���Sis5*  0  ���5ft  W-  The Loan Act is a very different measure now from what  it appeared when first held up to the gaze of an  admiring  public.    The amendments have so entirely metamorphosed  its character that if it were not for the " B.P." clause  it is  doubtful whether the Premier himself would recognise his  i* railway policy.''  Thanks to the energetic measures taken  by the people of Boundary Creek and the resolution passed  by the meeting at Greenwood,  Mr.  Heinze will not have  things all his,own way and as at first seemed probable. The  following amendment, introducedby Mr. Sword  (who,   by-  the-way,   is worthy  of his truculent  nameK  places   Mr.  Heinze on the same level with the V. V. & E., the C. P. R.,  or any Qther corporation, person or firm wishing to construct  the road :  In the case of the line from Penticton to the Boundarj' Creek district  being* built by a company entitled to a land grant cfor the construction  of such line, the subsidy herein authorised shall only be paid to such  company oh its giving* up its claim to the land grant for such portion of  its line.  In fact it is not at all unlikely that the Columbia & Western  will not build the last section of the road under the circumstances, and in view of this we submit that the reserved  iands en route should be immediately thrown open to settlement. Even Mr. Heinze himself would, we believe,  scarcely object if this were done. The Penticton-Midway^  section of the Columbia & Western will either be built or it  will not. If it is within the stipulated time, the company  can either take the cash bonus of $4,000 per mile offered by  the government, or the proceeds from the sale of land sold  in the railway belt and a deed to the land unsold when their  intentions have been declared. If the section is not built,  then by throwing the reserved land open at once Mr. IJeinze  will have no cause for complaint and the country will be  benefitted to the extent that second and third class land  which under the provisions of the Columbia &; Western Act  is not now pre-emptable, can be occupied,  "%.

A public meeting was held in the  school-room on Monday night to arrange for the celebration of the Queeii's  birthday at Greenwood on the 24th;; o*f  May. Mr. Galloway was voted to the  - chair and Mr. Hodgson acted as secretary.- ���.'    ;.���.' "������;     "���;.;���;  After calling the  meeting  to  order,  the chairman said that it was  customary in the different British colbnies to  celebrate the birthday Of the Queen by  a public holiday and the' carrying  out  of a prograninie of sports  and  games./  It was for this meeting to  decide  how  best to celebrate the occasion.   Person-  ally he had to  confess  a  predilection  for   horse   racing.      On/Sunday  Mr.  Shaw, C.E., had kindly taken the levels  and looked over a plot of ground north  of  town, to see if it would  be suitable  for a race-track.    He had reported adversely, and it was therefore necessary  to look elsewhere for a course if horse-  racing was to be a feature of the  celebration. ,. . v  . Mr.   Nelson    thought    horse-racing.  should certainly be   an' essential  part  of the'programme.  Mr. Gomstock suggested  that a fair  , half-mile   track  could- be   made   at   a  small expense  along  Silver  street  to  the saw-mill. '     ���  "���'  .Mr. L,eamy moved that Messrs. Nelson, Comstock, Smith, Curry and Galloway form a committee to arrang-e a  programme of sports which would include, besides horse-r<j._ing, Caledonian  games.    The motion was carried.  Mr.,Elkins then pointed out that in  England great preparations were being  made to celebrate -the" great event of  the Queen's diamond jubilee on June  22nd. He was decidedly of the opinion  that something should be done in  Greenwood of a permanent nature in  commemoration of the occasion.  The chairman suggested that Greenwood might well follow the example  set by Victoria and commemorate the  diamond jubilee by putting the streets  in order [laughter].  Mr. Black thought the opening of  public recreation grounds would be a  suitable -way of carrying out the idea.  Mr. Galloway pointed out that land  had already been reserved 611 the town-'  site for this purpose. Mr. Wood said  the suggestion that .a monument of ores  be erected met with his approval ; if  anything was clone it should be well  done. Mr. Galloway feared that in a  very short time such a monument'  would become an eyesore .rather than  a thing of beauty*. Everyone knew  that ore exposed to the atmosphere  would become oxidised.  Mr. Hodgson wished to know if the  24th of May was to be celebrated as  well as the 22nd of June. He was of  the opinion that people could not afford  to subscribe to two celebrations.- That  the Queen had lived, to reign..longer-  than any sovereign in English histoi-3-  was a very notable event, and that  should be commemorated in a iittintr ���  manner in Greenwood.  Mr. L,amb quite agreed^ with Mr.  Hodgson's views. The question, he  said, of raising subscriptions for' the  two events mig-ht possibly be settled  by winding up the celebration oh the  24th May with a concert in the evening  and devoting the proceeds .therefrom  as the nucleus of a fund.for providing  a jubilee memorial of a lasting character. Mr. Galloway, as a school trustee, objected to this  suggestion.    The  school was very much in debt, and he  and his colleagues hoped by giving a  concert to decrease their liabilities.  Mr, Milligan   then   moved   that  the  celebration take place May;24th.  Mr: Hallett offered as an amendment  the 22nd of June, pointing outjthat the  season was much later this year than  last and that prospectors"were only beginning to go into the"hills. He thought  that if the celebration was held in June  the attendance would be rnuch larger.  He was opposed to the idea of horses-  racing in Greenwood. Nature never  intended Greenwood for a race-course  and people would not run good -horses  on the course proposed ; athletic sports  and rock drilling* contests would be  much more to the point.  Upon a vote being taken the amendment was lost.  Mr. Hodgson then moved that Messrs.  Breslauer, Black and Sutherland be appointed to act on the committee already  named to undertake the management  of the Queen's birthday celebration :  and Messrs. Wood, Elkins, Ivamb, Hallett and Hodgson were appointed as a  committee to arrange for the commemoration of the diamond jubilee.  The proceedings then terminated  with a vote of thanks to the chairman.  A Road to iKimberley Cam?.  . Mr. Smailes, of Rendell  &   Co.,   has  started a fund for the construction of a  road -frour  Greenwood to "Kimberley  camp.   The work of cleaning and'grading was commenced 011   Monday.'   Private enterprise has built every road in  Boundary, with  the  exception  of  the  ��� main trunk road.    This   arrangement  naturally is quite  satisfactory,   so  far  as the g-overnment of  the  country  is  concerned, who are thereby enabled to  devote the money collected from Boundary Creek  in  the  form  of "taxes,   to  other purposes ; but those who are asked to put their hands  in   their  pockets  to help defray the expense of  building  or mending public roads, but nevertheless find/that the tax-collector does not  .take this into account but is as inexorable and pressing as ever,   demur with  reason.    The road to this camp will increase the revenue of the  government  office at Midway  by   giving, the-.'prospector access to a lately discovered/but'':,  promising mineral field.    But little development work-has been carried on in  Kimberley. camp, the discovery of mineral only   dating   from'., .last summer;  enough   has,   however,   been  done  to  prove that huge deposits of pyrrhotite  ore exist.   The formation and the character of the outcroppings here  are  the  same as at Trail  creek  where,   in  the  case of the Deer Park and other  properties, the low grade massive sulphides  outcropping gave place at   a  depth   to  a very much richer and more   silicious  ore,-���prospects accounted too low grade  to operate   becoming  valuable  mines.  In Kimberley  camp  the  same  conditions will prevail, albeit from   some of  the claims the ore assa3rs. higher /than  did most of the Trail prospects  at.the  same stag-e of development.

A fine road has been "built at, a cost
of about $1,500 by Messrs. Dier & Davidson from Fairview to the Tin horn
claim, a distance of 2% miles, and a
20-stamp mill is shortly to be brought
in and installed upon the property. A
tunnel has been run 200 feet on the
Tinhorn and connection made with the
old shaft at a depth of 63 feet. A shaft
is being sunk on the vein SO feet from
the mouth of the tunnel. The ore encountered is extremely hard blue
quartz, with iron p3rrites and some zinc
blende. . The vein is four feet wide in
the tunnel.
It is,rumored that the owners of  the
Joe Dandy intend to erect a stamp mill
on the ba.nks of  the   Okanagan  river,;
as the water supply at the mine   is   in

highly argentiferous gray copper, isV.

Perry and Armitage, of  Armstrong, are visiting Greenwood.  A millinery and dressmaking shop is  to be opened in Greenwood by Mrs. G.  R. Propper, who arrived from Grand  Forks yesterday.  Mr. Monaghan, president of the Cariboo ^Mining Co., accompanied by a  party from. Spokane, went up to Camp  McKinney this week. o  Mr. Robt. Hall arrived from Kelbwna  this week, and after one round trip to  Penticton for freight will settle on his  ranch up Boundary creek.  The Queen's birthday celebration  committee have already collected nearly $300 in Greenwood, and, much canvassing still remains to be done. The  committee have worked in a commend-  ably energetic manner.  A number of lots have been sold in  "Greenwood this week and strangers  ..now* arrive daily ori the stages. Among*  those who contemplate remaining permanently is a Mr. Harvey, of California, who intends to open a restaurant  ��� here... '���' ,: " . - ���     .'",'���;C. '���  , The Greenwood City. Mercantile Co.  have now--twelve teams "oh; the road  from Marcus. Notice has also been  received of the arrival at. Marcus of a  car-load of liquors and a car-load of  giant powder, consigned to the firm.  Mr. Robt. Densler, who had the misfortune to break a bone of his leg��� last  week, will be moved from Marcus to .  Greenwood camp next week. The  fracture is not of so serious.a nature as ,  was at first reported, the smaller bone  of the limb having been cleanly broken  and not the tibia or shin bone..  The first of Messrs. Rendell & Co.'s  freight teams arrived from Penticton  on Thursday, having been 15 days on  the road. Freight charges have consequently risen to 3c. The new addir  tibn 20x45 to the firm's store has been  completed and will be used exclusively  as a dry goods department.  In the legislature last week Mr.  Graham made a determined stand  against the passage of clause 21 of the  Cascade Water Power & Ivight Co.'s  bill, which would give the company  prior rights to the use of the water of  Boundary creek; Mr. Graham urged  that the waters of Boundary creek be  exempted from the Act. In spite of the  opposition of the Attorney-General,  who remarked that Greenwood was at  present unincorporated but that when  it was the Cascade company would  have to go to the city for a by-law, Mr.  Graham carried his point.  The Midway Shooting Case.  At Midway on Thursday and Friday  the case of W.. G. McMynn, charged  with assault with intent to do grievous  bodily harm on a prospector named R.  J. Hood, was given a preliminary hearing before C. A. R. I^ambiy, S.M., and  J. Kerr, J.P. The evidence was very  voluminous but did not .differ materially from the depositions made before  Mr. L/anibiy at" the enquiry ordered by  the government into the circumstances  of the shooting in February. Up to  the time of going to press the examination of witnesses had not been concluded.   Strike on the Boundary Falls.  A Vancouver correspondent  writes :  "The Boundary Falls Mining Co. is  jubilant over the great strike on  their  property. The claim was recently purchased on a showing of $3.3 on the surface. A gang of men was put to work  and at 20 feet the vein had widened  from three to four feet, and ore picked  off the face of the tunnel assayed up to  $120 in gold and silver, no assay being  under $100. The vein is a true fissure  and is concentrating ore. Fully 90 per  cent, can be saved on the plates of the  crushen The mine is located four  miles from Greenwood."  McNICOL.-McLAREN.  On Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock  Mr. Jas. McNicol, of Midway, was  married by the! Rev. T. Paton in the  Presbyterian church at Grand Forks  to Miss Jeahnette Mclvaren,' eldest  daughter of Mr. Donald MLcI^aren, One  of the proprietors of the Carson town-  site. The bride was beautifully dressed in a white satin gown, trimmed  with orange blossoms, and looked very  charming; she was attended by her  sister as bridesmaid, who wore, a pretty  pink dress and carried a bouquet of  flowers. Mr. Forbes M. Kerby acted  as best man to the groom. After the  ceremony a dance, which was largely  attended, was given in the rooms of  .the Grand Prairie hotel at Carson.  Both the groom and bride; are well  known and popular throughout the district and the wedding presents were  numerous and costly*-. Mr. and Mrs.;..  McNicol left amid showers of rice and  old shoes on Thursday to spend the  honeymoon,in v Spokane. Upon their  return they will reside in Midwaj*-.  TARIFF   CHANGES.  Under the new tariff bill just introduced, mining machinery of, any kind  and bla sting powder are placed on the  free list; flour is reduced from 70 to ,60  cents per barrel: coal-oil reduced one  cent ';'��� like reductions have been made  on other necessaries, while luxuries  are taxed to an increased extent. Until January, 1898, there will be a reduction of one-fourth on ail goods imported from Great Britain.  MINING NOTES.  Fred. Shonquest went up to I^ong  lake "oh Friday to do an assessment on  the Dinero Chico.  Charlie Rendell is doing an assessment on the Whale, on Pass,: creek.  The claim has an immense iron capping.  -" Sunday closing" is now observed  in Camp Fairview?; work at the mines  being stopped for the day last Sunday  for the first time.  The Morning Glory mine, near Vernon, is given a prominent position in  Toronto brokers' daily lists, shares  being quoted at 15 cents.  Messrs. McKenzie, and Cameron, visitors from Toronto representing an  eastern syndicate, have purchased the  Anchor and Enterprise claims in I^ong  I^ake camp.  The.Margaret claim at Rock Creek,  bonded by Tom Currie to Mr. Thompson, was sold by him this week to Mr.  Cowan, of Manitoba, at a good figure.  The sale was effected by the judicious  use of giant powder.      >,  Crown Grants.���When applying for  crown grants, request that the advert  tising thereof be published in Thk  Boundary Creek Times,���the mining  paper of the district.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  tibat])  HAROLD M.  LAMB  W.   U.    HARBER    ���������  ���    EDITOR  MANAGER  Subscription, $2.00 per Year, in Advance.  ;   SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1897.  Contract for Tunnel on the Sunset.  On Tuesday Mr. J. H. McFarlane, on  behalf of the Anaconda Mining* Company/let a contract to Mr. G. Rankin  for 250 feet of tunnelling* on the Sunset, in Deadwood camp. L/ater on a  contract will be let for either a shaft or  tunneling* on the Crown Silver. The  company hold a bond on both properties  Sale of a Sixth Interest iii the Brooklyn.  L<ast week Mr. W. T. Smith purchased  from Mr. Mang-ott, of Fairview, a sixth  interest  in the  Brooklyn, Greenwood  camp, for Mr. Roberts, chief eng-ineer  of the Spokane & Northern  R.R.   Co.,  the price being* $2,600 cash.    Mr. Roberts was one of the original shareholders in the  Rossland  War  E}ag*le,   and  when that property changed owners he  realized for his  share $60,000.    He   is  also larg*ely interested in the Republic  and other promising claims  in  Boundary.    The Brooklyn  has  one  of  the  largest surface showings in ^the  camp  and the result of the development work  which has been  carried  on  up to the  present time has been eminentlj'- satisfactory.    It is hoped that in the course  of a few weeks a force of  men  will be  employed to thoroughly  open  up  and  exploit the claim.  The Adams Mining Company.  Mr, Walter Adams arrived from  Montreal on Tuesday, g-oing* over to  the Okanag*an to, make arrangements  for working* the properties there owned  by the company recently formed by  Capt. Adams in lyondon. It is also  proposed to exploit the Cordick, in  Summit camp, this summer with a diamond drill. Mr. Adams was pleasur-  ably surprised at the growth that" has  taken place in Greenwood since his  last visit.  The Coast and Boundary Creek.  Mr.   MacFarlane,  of the  Anaconda  Mining* Co., who contemplates residing*  here for some months, makes a  statement that perhaps will rather astonish  a good  many.     He says  that  in  the  coast   cities   everyone  is    talking*   of  Greenwood as the  town  of Boundary  Creek district.    This is good news, for  it speaks well that the first and  rightful place is accorded to a town that hast  never   been   boomed   like���well,   like  others in the same locality which could  be  mentioned.     The  impression  that  people on the coast do  not  realize  the  potentialities of the resources of Boundary Creek is,   according to  Mr.  Mac-  farlane, unfounded.    On the contrary,  the business nien  especially  are  very  keen to see  the  direct  railroad  built.  The Harrison lake excitement  is  confined chiefly to Americans from Whatcom who have acquired larg-e interests  in that section.  Leaving for England.  It is with very sincere regret we  learn that Mr. Stephen Taylor has at  leng-th conceded to the urgently expressed wishes of his friends at home  and decided to return to England. Mr.  Taylor, althoug-h his residence here has  been of comparatively short duration,  is deservedly popular with his fellow-  townspeople in Greenwood, and his de  parture, which will not however take  place for two or three  weeks  to  come  yet, will be  g-enerally  deplored.    His  time   meanwhile  will   be  occupied  in  settling* up the affairs of  his  deceased  brother,  negotiations  for  the  sale  of  the drug* business here being*  now on.  Mr. Taylor intends taking-  back  with  him to  England  a collection  of ores  from Boundary   Creek,   and  hopes  by  his representations of the great mineral  resources  of    the    district   to   induce  wealthy men in England to  invest in  property here.  Nuggets of Silver.  Another magnificent specimen of  ore from the D.A., literally sparkling*  with specks and small nuggets of native silver, was brought down this  week, having* been picked off the dump  by, Mr. Shaw, C.E., who visited the  property on Sunday. The D.A..'tunnel;  is now in between 70 and 80: feet and  the ore blasted out recently is very  fine indeed.  A Beautiful Townsite.  ��� There is quite a building* boom at  Midway at the present time, new businesses are being* established and a  number of handsome private residences  are also in course of construction. The  majority of the residents of the town  are fencing* in their property, planting-  gardens and preparing* the ground for  lawns. When the flat is supplied with  water from the irrigation ditch, now  nearly completed, Midway will be as  beautiful a spot and as desirable a site  for residential purposes as can be found  in the province.  The Church of England in Greenwood.  The Rev. H. Irwin, of Rossland, held  services in Greenwood on Wednesday  evening* and Thursday morning*. After  the service on Wednesday evening* a  meeting; of the members of the Anglican church here was held, Mr. Hodgson  being appointed secretary. It was decided to obtain a list of those belonging* to the Church of England in this  district and an effort will be made to  secure the offices of a resident clergyman. Upon Mr. Irwin's next visit a  committee will be chosen and the question of building- a church at Greenwood  taken up.       .-." "      ':    - ���'''   "'  Capital Interested in Pass Creek.  Bob Robinson returned this week  after spending: the winter months in  Spokane and Rossland. He has succeeded in interesting* a syndicate���a  representative of whom will shortly  visit the camp���in his two properties,  the Golden Giant and the Northern  Belle, on Pass creek. Meanwhile the  claims are being-developed.  MINING NOTES.  The final assessment on the Trilby,  in Skylark camp, has been completed.  Estops and Smith went up to Pass  creek on Thursday to work on No. 3.  Mr. Leslie Hill, consulting engineer  of the Prospecting Syndicate of B.C.,  returned from Rossland on Tuesday.  Work on the Last Chance, the property of the Republic Mining* Co., will  be started next week and tenders for  sinking from the bottom of the present  shaft will be called for.  Three 8-hour shifts are to be put on  the Golden Crown in the course of a  week or so, in fact directly the tunnel  is well under way. At present only  four men are at work on the property.  **  Garland & Co., !  Dealers in ���  J     And MINERAL   CLAIMS,  i Greenwood, B.C.  MINERAL   CLAIMS  !  |   v   ' ���.,-'.?

Goericke, but it  was not  until 1887 that much work   was  done ;  in that year an incline shaft was sunk  on the property to a depth of  110  feet.  Assays from, the best ore ran  from $44  to $480, with very little silver, and the  poorest $7 to $12 ; one  sample  sent  to  San   Francisco   carried   telluride.    In  1887 the claim was patented by Messrs.  J. C. Haynes, F.  W.  Goericke   and  C.  B. Bash.   Recent development consists  of : Tunnel No. 1,   236  feet  across the  formation, and a drift on the  ledg*e  at  present in 108 feet ; tunnel  No. 2, also  across the formation, 205 feet to.h angling* wall, and an upraise along- hang-ing-  wall to tap the old incline shaft, about  70 feet. The perpendicular depth where  ledg-e is cut in both  tunnels is 100 feet.  The assays from the ledg*e at the depth  of crosscut vary from  a  few dollars to  $280 in g*old and $2.30 in silver per ton.  Sinking* has been beg-un on   the   ledg-e  at the No. 2 tunnel.   An upraise for air  will.be made at No. 1 as soon as the 150  foot point is reached in the drift, when  sinking-  will   prp.bably   g*o   on   at   the  same point.    A larg*e part of the ore is  concentrating- and a mill   to   reduce it  will be built as   soon   as  the  company  find the quantity sufficient to  promise  a steady supply.    Three spurs, dipping*  towards the ledg*e, were crossed in the  crosscut.    The width of the ledg*e proper varies from  4   to  8  feet,   and  the  width of the spurs from   a  few  inches  to  2 feet.     The  tunnels are  650  feet  apart and enter  the   hill   at  the  Rock,  creek level.  The Victoria is situated on the rig-lit.  bank of the creek, .about Zl/2 miles  south-east from Camp McKinney and  halfra-mile from the stage road to  Greenwood. Work beg*ari on clearing*  and grading* the road to the camp early .  last October. The building-s consist of  a dwelling--house and office for the superintendent, three bunk-houses,, store  and cook house, blacksmith shop, . coal  shed, powder house, larg-e barn, two  small cabins at the tunnels, etc. Actual mining- commenced early in November. No free g*old is noticeable in  the rock, but experienced mill men say  that stamping- will bring- it out. There  are 12 men on the pa}- roll, besides the  superintendent.  There are three claims on the same  ledg*e, the Victoria, California and  Queen, all owned by the Rock Creek  Mines Co. Development work 'has only  been done on the Victoria, except that  done in the early days. The company  have put more than half their shares  in the treasury, but there are as yet no  shares on the market. A limited number will, it is understood, be offered f or ���  sale when it is known what will be the  probable expenditure necessary for development and the erection of a reducing- plant. The managing* eng-ineer  of the company is expected in directly  snow g*oes.  ��� '' ���  MINING NOTES.  The crosscut tunnel on the Combination has reached a distance of 20  feet from the mouth.  A party composed of Messrs. Mliler,  Gordon, Gloug*h, Fdwards and Garrison have left to prospect up Kettle  river.  F. A. Bartholomew struck a g*ood  body of sulphide ore last week on the  Jubilee, on Eholt creek. A shaft is  being- sunk on the claim.  Mr. McCarren intends to utilise the  water power at Boundary Falls and is  now preparing* to lay pipes. It is possible that works of some kind for treating- free milling* ore will be established  in the vicinity of the fall this summer.  ineral Glasses and Prospecting Compasses.

Mr. Phelan has enlarg-ed his house  on Government street by the addition  of two rooms.  Mr. G. B. Taylor has opened the new  store at Rock Creek and is already  doing a capital business.  Messrs. McKague & James have  greatly improved their bath rooms and  have added new appliances for heating  water quickly.  Mr. Paton moved into his new house  on  Greenwood  street on Wednesday..  The building is one of the neatest and  most comfortably arranged residential  houses in Greenwood.  Mr. J. C.Haas, who returned from  Spokane on Sunda}', states that there  is a great rush to the Fort Steele country which is "now being furiously boomed,, not however without good cause.  A confectionery establishment is to  be opened shortly on Copper street by  Miss Brennan,who has a reputation  for skill as w pastry cook A paint  shop has also been-added to the places  of business on Copper street.  A number of people from Greenwood  took advantage of the glorious weather  on ^Monday and formed a picnic-party,  spending the day at Midway. A most  enjoyable time was passed, notwithstanding the waters of Kettle river  were too muddy to afford successful  fishing.  Harry Rose, a freighter on the Penticton route, was ten days making his  last trip to Greenwood. If culverts  were put in at different places on the  road the journey could be done now in  a little more than half that time. The  cost of j)utting in the necessary culverts would liot exceed |5150..  Those who have not alreadj- made  application to have their names placed -  on the provincial voters' list are notified that forms may be obtained from  Mr. Hallett, Mr. Black, or Mr. L,amb.  It is most imperative that the name of  every eligible voter in the district be  registered.  On Monday Messrs. Rendell & Co.  employed a. force of men to improve  the road between Carson and Greenwood. This step had become absolutely necessary, since freighters from  Marcus have refused (owing to the  condition of the road over the summit  of Boundary mountain) to haul beyond  Carson, and consequently- several  wagon loads of goods consigned to the  firm have been left at that place during the past two weeks. It is a strange  and at the same time most undesirable  state of affairs when private firms are  compelled to g-o to the expense of maintaining the public roads, paying taxes  meanwhile.  The wholesale business houses of  Spokane are beginning to make strenuous efforts to secure the Boundary  Creek trade, and ever}' week representatives of the larger firms arrive in  Greenwood soliciting orders. Mr. E.  E. Williams, representing Holley, Mason, Marks & Co., a large firm of hardware merchants with headquarters in  Spokane, who visited the district for  the first time this week, said that the  trains running- between Spokane and  Marcus are literally crowded with passengers bound���for the most part���for  Boundary Creek. Until the last week  or so, however, people have been deterred from setting out for this district  owing to the reported impassable state  ��� ?  \  J  Rossland.:  ttivestment and  LIMITED    LIABILITY.

Mr. Williams found the  roads to be by no means in so bad a  condition as he was informed at Marcus was the case. He hopes to visit  the district regularly at intervals of 60  days in future.  THE   SPRING   OUTLOOK.  ������'���'"���'      [contributed:]   '",."..  In conversation   with   a  number  of  parties   who   have   recently   been   in  Rossland and the   Slocan   country, wte  are informed that it   will  not  be   long  now before this country will be   at   its  height-of a firm  and  lasting  business  boom.,,  Inquiries are being made daily  regarding the condition  of  the  roads,  and the amount of snow in   the   mountains, and when it would be   advisable  for men looking- for business locations  and mining investments to   visit   this  section.    As a   rule   the  class   coming  here are men   of   means; who   have   in  view a permanent residence or investment in   mining  property1;   and  it   is  well to understand that there is  little  ^demand for any others1, as the country  is well supplied with people who depend  on their labor for a living.    It   is true  there is a large population in Rossland  but a large per cent, of  the people are  without   any   means   of  support   and  many would  not  work  were  they encouraged to do so.   It is the same in all  new towns adjacent.to a railroad. This  cotintry is too  far  away   to catch this  undesirable class of people at present ;  but there are-scores of g"ood  enterprising citizens anxious  to  come,   and  to  these it is necessary to explain  that it  is yet too early to get out into the hills  and see the mines  or  to  prospect.    If  the   present;   weather     continues   the  country   will  soon  be relieved  of  its  burden of snow and there will then be  no trouble or drawbacks to easy access  to any part of the country;,  The work done on the principal mines  of   the  Boundary  Creek   district  this  winter is  a  sufficient  guarantee  that  we can show more ore and larger  bodies of mineral in this district than any  other part of the province, and capitalists   and  investors  are  beginning   to  realize this.    Greenwood, as a  central  point in this vast  mineral  section, is j  already well known, and when the people do commence coming into the country it will keep the citizens   here   busy  taking  care  of  them.    A  glimpse  of  half-a-dozen properties in  Greenwood,  Copper,   Deadwood   and  other  camps  will soon convince them that the Boundary   Creek  country   has   never   been  over-estimated or exag-gerated.

Communications were read at the  meeting- on Wednesday from Mr. Graham, M.P.P., acknowledging- receipt  of resolution condemning "L/oanAct"  as first introduced ; from Mr. Cuppage,  road inspector, who stated that he expected to visit Boundary immediately,  when the matter of improving* the road  between Grand Forks and Anaconda  would be attended to.  The dramatic entertainment committee reported that the casts, in. the comedy "Turn him out," to be given about  the 15th*inst., had been filled and the  parts assig-ned.  Messrs. Keffer and Miller were appointed a committee to secure a further  lease of the club rooms.  Mr. F. E. Baton, of Walla Walla,  and Mr. F. N. Alexander, of Portland,  were visitors at Wednesday's meeting.  Leaving for Winnipeg.  Mr. H. M. Irwin, who has acted as a  missionary of the Presbyterian church  in Boundary for the past twelve months  leaves probably next week to complete  his course in theology at Winnipeg.  During the time in which he has resided in the district he has won the warm  esteem and respect of the entire community, who unite in wishing him  every success and happiness in the  calling for which he is so well fitted.  Mr. Irwin's successor, Mr. Eee, arrived  on Wednesday, and is yet undecided  whether to make his headquarters at  Greenwood or Midway.  FINANGIAL   ANDMINING   BROKERS.
