A Well Known Summit Camp Property Chances  Hands���Mr. Bucke or Montreal Secures Control of War Eagle.���Assayer for Similkameen.  D. H. Beecher president of the First  National  Bank,  Grand  Forks,  North  Dakota, and treasurer of the Winnipeg  Gold Mining Company,     Duncan   Mcintosh, president and manager of the  same company,  D. A. Cameron,  manager of the Greenwood  branch  of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce,  Dr. J.  F.   Reddy   and   J.   Percival,   two   of  Spokane's    most   successful     mining  men make up a sufficiently  strong  aggregation to float any  "wild cat"  but  when they acquire one of the most promising   properties   in  Summit camp,  and  intend  organizing  a company to  develop it, the flotation is sure to be as  successful   as    any    connected    with  Boundary creek properties.    For some  time J. W. Cheer the  one armed  prospector,   has been   industuriously    at  work opening up the rich ledges of the  Homestake claim in summit camp. He  sank shafts,ran tunnels and opened cuts  and secured good values.     On  Thursday afternoon he closed a deal with the  gentlemen   -whose   names  are    given  above,   and   now stands   to be handsomely   rewarded  for years   of hard  work   under    exceptional   difficulties.  The  Homestake  joins  the  Emma on  the   west,  about ' eight    miles   from  Greenwood city.   It is located  at the  foot  of   a   steep   hillside,  and can be  easily opened up by   a  tunnel.     The  line of the  Columbia &  Western railway passes underneath the present ore  dump on the property.    Mr. Cheer ran  a tunnel for a distance of 71 feet into  - the mountain.   On the bench above he  sunk several shafts, one 26 feet deep,  another   12   feet and  a third about 10  feet.   There is also a open cut on  one  of the ledges for a distance of 37 feet.  The   Homesteak   appears to contain  several parrell ledges, some of them of  great width. It is difficult to determine  the character of these ledges until some  work  is   done   as   the surface   of the  claims is covered with several  feet of  wash.     In the 26 foot shaft there is  four and a half feet of solid ore which  has yielded assays as high as $62.40 in  all values.    Like most of the big Sum-  mil camp properties,  the Homestake  carries good  copper values.     One of  the ledges on the Homestake has been  traced to the Oro Denero claim  in the  immediate vicinity.       The   purchase  price for  the  property  has not been  made public.    It includes a substantial  cash consideration and shares in the  company   that   will   be   organized  to  take over the property.  I,. A. Campbell, the manager of the  West Kootenay Power & Light company is the authority for the statement  that his company intend supplying  power to the mines of Boundary creek.  The line carrying electricity is to be'  extended to this city. Mr. Campbell  stated that the new line to here will  follow the old Dewdney trail to Cascade city thence to Grand Forks, Columbia and Greenwood City in as direct  a. line as possible. At Greenwood City,  where will be located a sub-station,  branch lines -will be constructed to  Deadwood, Copper, Summit, Greenwood, Wellington and other camps, as  required to supply electrical power to  the mines. The Columbia townsite  people���or the city���may arrange to  utilize the power for electric lighting  ���f A��  We now have a large assortment of  Rods, Reels,  Lines, Hooks,  Leaders, Fly Books,  Grasshoppers,  Cans, Etc, Etc  SMITH  &  McRAE'S,  Books, Stationeiy, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GREENWOOD,    B.Q,  their town.     AtBonnington Falls the,  hydraulic  and  electrical   work    is    at  present developed to supply 5000 horsepower.   This if necessary can  be immediately  increased  according  to the  demand   up    to    80,000    horse-power.  With the present power the company  will supply  the smelter at Trail;  the  electricity for lighting Rossland  and  power for  the War Eagle, Big Three,  Iron Mask and Gertude  mines in that  camp and the Bullion Extraction works  at Silica, using some 2600 horse-power.  With the proposed  extension   into the  Boundary creek country the company,  figure   on   a   further -iii-roav of 2400 _,  horse-power,   or   up   to   the     present  capacity of the plant.    The line direct']  from   Bonnington   Falls   through   to  Greenwood City will be a double three-  phase one, so that in case of any  mis-  h.ip on one-set of lines the current can  be switched  off on to the other.     Mr.   -  Campbell   could   not   state   definitely  how soon they could start work on the  new line, as he understood there  is yet r  considerable-   snow-    on     the     summit    of    the   Dewdney     trail.      The '  Kootenay     Power     &    Light     company have already  made contracts to  supply   power   to   some   of   the  local  mines.    The Knob Hill aud  Old  Ironsides intend utilizing this power to operate the SO-drill compressor which was  recently ordered.  F. P. Bucke of Montreal will arrive  here in a few days. He is heavily interested in the Knob Hill, the War  Eagle and adjoining claims, also in  the Buckhorn. The War Eagle company was recently incorporated by W.  T.Smith and others'but Mr. Bucke'  secured a controlling interest for a,  Montreal company of which he is pre-  president.G. H. Fletcher vice-president  and C. A. French secretary. Mr.  Bucke was in Spokane a few days ago  and is now in Rossland. He stated  that Montreal was, taking a great, interest in western mines and he anticipates that this interest will grow as  those who have-already 'invested met  with success. The Montreal investors  prefer dividend payers but are willing  to develop promising prospects.  Plain Anglo-Saxon.  Lord Beaconsfield once said that Mr.  Gladstone was "an egotistical rhetorician inebriated with the exuberance of  his own ' verbosity." Lately Mr.  Justice ,. Martin immortalized "the  British minerals (other than coal) act,"  by stating that he "took the view that  ��� speedy finality -of- litigation and a  quietude of title with all celerity are  the dominant policy of the miaeral  act."���Western Mining World.  That's easy���Not long ago 'Geo. ��A.  Guess, M. A., and J. C. Haas, M. E.,  hypnotized an Irish compositor in the  Boundary Creek Times office with the  following sentence supposedly descriptive of Boundary creek. "Altered  sedimentary and metamorphic rocks,  occurring with numerous eruptive  ^"porphyries" and "diorites," flank the  basal granites which occupy the upper  portion of the creek."   Next!  *���?">'' -==--_==-===-_=_____:  TWO   HANDSOME   BUILDINGS.  Rendell & Co.'s and J. W. Powell's Blocks are  ' a Credit to the City.  No better criterion of the permanency of a town can be found than the  class of buildings which are erected  therein. Cheap buildings are usually  built in a town that will enjoy only a  short spell of prosperity. Experienced  business men fully realize, however,  that Greenwood is the metropolis of a  big mining district, that it will continue to be the business centre of the  Boundary Creek district, and are building accordingly. Rendell & Co's three  story building, which is ncaring completion, is being generally admired by  the many visitors to the city. The design is perfect, and no better setting  for one of the principal business corners of the city could be suggested.  Another building that is a credit to the  city is J. W. Powell's handsome hotel  on Government street. Good progress  is also being made on this building,  and it will be completed about July 1.  Keough's hotel on Government street  is also a substantial structure. The  Bealey Investment & Trust company's  new building on Copper street is receiving its finishing touches. It has  been leased by H. B. Munroe, and the  ground floor will be occupied by him.  Madden & Dalles are erecting a large  addition to the Pacific Hotel. Several  other buildings are being erected. Carpenters are kept busy, and the sawmill  men are happy.  *Wr;��   W'P /'���  l - -, AA  . ,    1 THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  /.  H.   HALLETT,  Q&drrisfcr, ^oficifor,  , NOTARY   PUBLIC.'

Deadman island a small piece of  land that is separated from' Stanley-  park, Vancouver, when the tide comes  in, is furnishing- the people of the  coast with plenty' excitement. J. C.  McLagan et al were'always anxious to  get the island as a site for a marine  railway or any other industry that''  could be used as a stalking- horse behind which the islantl'coiilcl be secured  by private individuals. Mac is not  much of a success at that kind of  thing. He makes too hhi:1i noise.  One Theo. L,utlgate, representing  American capital, went to the Rev.  Geo. R. Maxwell, M. P. The Rev.  George promised to help him and he  journeyed to Ottawa with Ludgate.  Their mission was successful and Mr.  Ludgate by paying- $500 a year was  allowed to mar the beauty of Stanley  park by erecting- a saw mill on Dead-  man's island. Then the MaEagan  crowd shouted that it was a disgrace to  g-ive the island to'a. private individual.  The island belonged to Vancouver anyway and the Dominion government  had no right to grant a lease. A  delegation was sent to Ottrwa but the  government wasotstihate . nd Ludg-ate  was confirmed in his lease'. He started  to clear the sig-ht for the mill but was  arrested by city policemen. Hon.  Joseph Martin took a hand in the fight  as Ludg-ate's counsel and he soon made  short work of the city's contention.  Joseph was getting- along- swimmingly  when Francis Carter-Cotton  appeared  upon the scene. Mr. Carter-Cotton  loves not Joseph and he searched the  archives of the province with a view to  finding' something that would show  that Deadman island belonged to the  city,:SHe succeeded and at once announced that the province would take steps  to maintain her rights to the island.  The attorney-general could not agree  with the chief commissioner and said  so but the chief commissioner was  obdurate and the disruption of the  cabinet was imminent. Joe Martin  with that wonderful versatility that  carried him over worse places, deserts  Ludgate and acts as attorney-general.  Ludgate received word from Ottawa to  go ahead and the Dominion government would protect him. He started  to work with a force of men when his  ex-counsel appeared on the island with  a squad of provincial policemen. Ludgate refused tc stop the work and refused to be arrested. Joe gave orders  to his men and s'jon Ludgate found  himself in jail with a badly battered  face and bruises elsewhere.  Politics makes strange enemies as  well as' bed fellows and a Deadman's  island may be anything- but a quiet  spot. '���'/���''..  When one knows everything, experience . cannot bring knowledge.  The mayor's rulings are just as' irregular asthey were in January last.  It was decided to have the monej' bylaws election on May 22nd. It was  afterwards found that this date did  give the ten days notice required by  law. At the dictation of the mayor  the minute was changed to read the  27th and then adopted as amended.  For a smaller irregularity than this  money by-laws have been invalidated.

More ��    ,iculars Regarding tlie Rich Strike on  / the Property.  / has just been received  at   this  .ays the Columbia Review,   that  body, 12 feet in width, of chal-  cop3'rite,   with   which   is    intermixed  considerable grey copper, has just been  opened out at the 70 foot level on  the  Golden Eagle.   This is one of the most  important   strikes   ever   made   in the  Boundary country.   There is no doubt  that the ore is of high  value,   and   the  body a vast one and that the Golden  E}agle from now on will   rank   among  the   banner   mines   of the northwest.  r. The Golden Eagle is situated  near the  Volcanic, and was bonded from Mr. C.  Tobiason last fall by Messrs.   Fox and  Moulton-Barrett   of   Greenwood,   who  have been steadily developing it ever  since.    That their, work  has been rewarded by the most complete success,  is gratifying to the entire country, and  should stimulate others to J>ersevere in  the   development   of, their properties.  This strike on the Golden Eagle is an-  1 other evidence of the rich  character of  the North  Fork section.     Many  properties of recognized high grade  are  situated in  the  immediate vicinity  of  the    Golden Eagle,  among them the  great Volcanic, Midnight, Earthquake  and English   and   French.      A   little  further on is the Christena, Pathfinder,  Mammoth and Diamond Hitch;   and  a  great number of other high grade properties which will within a comparativ-  ly short time   make   the  North  Fork  famous throughout the mining   world.  The assay values from the above strike  ran   over   $1000   per   ton   in gold and  about ten per cent, copper.   To say the  least, not only these high  values bnt>  the enormous body of ore from which  they are obtained,is simply surprising.  L/OST.���A souvenir Steamer. Beaver  cufflink.

Regarding, the Deadman island  question referred- to elsewhere ;,Hon-  Joseph Martin has this to say concerning the action of Hon. Mr. Cotton :  "I was very much surprised at ��� that  portion of Mr. Cotton's telegram to  Mayor Garden which appeared in the  News-Advertiser this morning,' in  which he states that the only course  for the provincial government is to  wait until the question of title is settled, and then sell the island on the  best terms obtainable for the province,  without regard to Mr. L,udgate. The  government had'a meeting on Thurs-  . dag last, at which ithis matter was  very carefully discussed, but no conclusion was arrived at. The stand  taken by Mr. Cotton as above outlined  expresses his own views and not those  of the government. My idea is that  under the very peculiar circumstances  of this case, while the government  must protect the interests of the pro-  ���rince, it must be careful to do nothing  which would have the effects of hilling-  the enterprise which Mr. Ludg-ate proposes to establish.  '���I hope it will be understood by the  public that I do not take this stand at  at all because I happen to be Mr. Ettd-  gate's solicitor, but because I am one  of Vancouver's '��� representatives, and  am bound to ��� promote as far as possible the best interests of my constituency.  "It is quite clear that if the government refuses to deal with the matter  until the question of law between it  and the Dominion government is settled, Mr. Eudgate will be obliged to  look elsewhere or a location, as it is  not likely that such a questioncan be  settled for  a good  many   months   to  come. As the local government lias  stood by for twelve years and allowed  everybody to think that (lie Do-minion  government owned this property, i  would appear to be a very unfair thing  to offer the island for sale without taking precautions to ensure the erection  ' of some kind of a manufactory there  which would give the city the same  benefits it has been led to expect from  Mr. Eudgate's enterprise."
