GREENWOOD CITY, B.C., SATURDAY/MAY 22, 1897.  37  No, 11,  TOPICS   fOR  THE   WEEK.  [ROM THE last issue of the Grand Forks Miner we  "gather"'.'that it is the intention to celebrate at  Grand Forks the Queen's Diamond Jubilee on the  22nd of June, instead of, as previously announced,  commemorating- the American day of rejoicing-���the 4th of  July. Whoever is responsible for this change of plan certainly deserves commendation, and no doubt the newly  elected mayor, Mr. Manly, (to whom, by-the-way, we offer  hearty congratulationsv upon the���to him and his supporters  7���satisfactory result of the recent municipal" contest) saw  the questionable taste of celebrating- in a Canadian town  the anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, an  event to which while the citizens of the Great Republic may  fittingly do honor, is hardly as associated with English  history an occurrence/that Kng-lishmen are proud to remember. Americans and Canadians are excellent friends, and  the cousinly relationship is rarely strained ; why, therefore,  make a display of the family skeleton ? ,      f  Apropos of the~Diambnd Jubilee,  Mr.  Baden-Powell  has  written to several of the Colonial papers suggesting that  simultaneously at 10 o'clock p.m. on the 22nd of  June   bonfires  should  be  kindled  at suitable   elevations   in   every  locality  throughout  the  Empire���that    great   Empire   on  which the sun never sets.    To our mind this  is a capital  idea, and there is no reason at*?rair why  it  should  not  be  carried out in Boundary.    In Engrand the custom of  light-  ing- bonfires on great occasions^ either of thanksgiving or  of alarm, dates back to the days of the Romans; but never,  so far as we are aware, has, the beacon light blazed in token,  of   great   national  rejoicing  in  the domains   of   Greater  Britain beyond the seas from the Motherland.    The  people  of Boundary should not, and we believe will not,   allow  the  opportunity  to  pass  of celebrating-  with   all  honor one of  the greatest and  most auspicious events in British history.  ___    *v*    SI'*  c   ���     , -aft*     ?ii>     iis*  Rather an interesting- claim  jumping-  case  was  decided  last week in New Westminster by Judge Bole.    The plaintiffs located a claim, the O K, near Pitt I^ake, on the 27th of  December, applying on the 7th  of January  to record;  for  some reason or other, however,  not stated,   they failed to  receive a record until the 26th of  the  same  month.    Meanwhile the defendants jumped the claim on the grounds presumably that (1) it was improperly located-���the description  on the post showing the direction of the line  to  be  northeast and south-west, whereas the true direction  was  northwest and south-east, and (2) that the  original  location  was  not recorded within the time limit specified in the Act.   The  Judge in giving a decision in favor of the defendants pointed out that by section 16 (sub-section D) of the Mineral Act  the locator is protected from forfeiting his title to his claim  providing   it   can   be   shown   that   mineral    was    found  in place ; that there was at any  rate  a  bona  fide  attempt  made on his part to comply with the provisions of  the Act;  and that the non-observance of the formalities was not of a  character calculated  to  mislead  others desiring  to  locate  claims  in  the  vicinity.     But in  this  case  the  plaintiff's  wrongful description on the posts would  certainly  mislead  others, wishing to locate in the vicinity. Moreover, although  the Recorder might be guilty of culpability in  the  matter,  there was no official record of the O.K. claim until the  26th  of January, which would extend the time beyond  the limits  allowed by the Act.  ���  *_*  Americans will continue to flock into British Columbia.  A by no means insig-nificant proportion of the population of  provincial border mining towns is at present, composed of  American citizens, who enjoy the greater freedom under  British monarchical government no less than the increased  opportunities of acquiring wealth afforded in the country.  An American lady now resident in Greenwood remarked  the other day that she " really was surprised " at the way  law and order was maintained in a place she was given to  understand was a rough mining camp. "Why, in Marcus,"  she^explained, "across the line, there was shooting going  orievery night of our stay, and a wbrhan was shot in the  Hand whlie walking- on the principal streefo'' V- '���- f   ,  #  '_!&  Mr}?  THE   QUEEN'S    BIRTH DAY   CELEBRATION.  The Queen's Birthday Celebration Committee  have perfected arrangements for the carnival of sports  on  Monday  next.    A force of men have succeeded  in  getting  the race  track in good order and some fast races are expected.    Two  local horsemen have been secretly  training-  a dark  horse  with the expectation of securing; the greater share of the  prizes, but they may be doomed to  disappointment, since a  string of American horses are coming across  the border to  take part in the races.    A large granite boulder the proper  shape and size(fhas been placed in position  for the drilling  contest.    The tug-of-war is another feature of the celebration which will undoubtedly prove exciting. The strong men  of Greenwood appear; to be confident of winning, since they  neglected to practice during the week ; their Anaconda opponents have pursued a different course by training for the  last two weeks.    The other events are likely  to be keenly  contested.    Messrs. Sansom & Holbrook's hall is  being enlarged, refitted and decorated for the grand ball  which will  conclude the celebration.  GERMAN   CAPITAL.  Certain German capitalists of note are directing their attention to the mines of Boundary Creek, and in all probability several properties will be secured by them within the  next few weeks. Mr. Hans Giese, who makes his head-  quartersr at Tacoma, visited Boundary last Fall, and after  carefully examining a number of claims ��in the different  camps, com.municated with friends in Germany. Mr. Giese  returned to Greenwood on Tuesday last intending to remain  for some time. GHe is accompanied by Mr. H. Vanhoff, an  experienced mining man from Berlin. They have already  examined several claims as an initial step towards inducing  German capitalists to purchase and develop mines in the  vicinity of Greenwood.  *  SI'*  'fa  '"if  UP    THE    WEST    PORK    OE    KETTLE    RIVER.  Since Sunday last over twenty-five claims have been  located on the divide between the West Fork and the main  Kettle river and on the east side of Beaver creek. Tom  Currie returned on Thursday evening to record six claims  located by him in that neighborhood. The indications are  most encouraging, the ore running high in copper with a  trace of gold. Gordon and Miller, two Greenwood prospectors, are coming down in a few days to record several  claims.   : .  *"ti-  _!&   sir*  Alien law or no alien law, it is nevertheless  certain   that  Bob Robinson, J. B. Estop and James Smith returned  yesterday from Pass creek where they have been working  on the Northern Belle, No. 3 and Golden Giant. The surface showings on these claims are very large. Another  claim on Pass creek which showed up well after assessment  work is the Sidehill Star owned by Al. Clifford and others.  fi*B_^ii_iiau��'-iia-wiMm/--U-^  smwawM,^-1^ THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  K4* 4* 4r-4>.4?.4r&&-4r^fc  ��� Taylor &  eaters in General 1  And PROSPEGTORS; SUPPLIES.  ^       ROOK     OREEK, -       -      -       -       B.

"���'.,. Bjr command..  James McConnell, who is heavily interested  in   mining-  properties  in  the  district,   came  tip    from Victoria   on  Monday last. He reports that-the leg-al  difficulties between Frank Richter arid  himself with respect to the  coal  property at Rock Creek  have  been  settled  out of court.    This property was  purchased last autumn by Messrs., Robert  Wood   &   Co.,   of  Greenwood,   W.   T.  Thompson   and  others,   but  owing-  to  the   lawsuit  the   deal   had   not   been  o   closed.    Everything-was satisfactorily  arranged during- the  past week,   however,  and  the  hew  owners  intend  to  yig-orously push the  work of development  beg-un  last  fall.    Already   oyer -  $1,00.0 has been spent in making a tun- *  nel and sinking- shafts.,. This work has  disclosed a seam of coal and shale from  six to nine feet in depth.   There is two  feet of clean coal under a smooth sandstone roof.    Below this are a series  of  layers of coal  and  shale,   varying-  in  thickness arid terminating- in a smooth  shale floor.    The owners intend securing-   a  diamond  drill .and  thoroug-hly  testing- the  ground.    In  the  event  of  the property proving- equal to expectations, a strong-company will be organized for the purpose of mining-the coal.  Messrs. Wood & Co. last year staked  several coal  claims  adjacent  to  their  property, but the g-overnment  refused  the record  to  them,  stating  that  the  land had been reserved a few days previous to their application as  a  portion  of the Columbia & Western land grant.  This property is only 640 acres  in; extent and had they  secured  the  claims  applied for they would be in  a  better  position to secure  the  org-anization of  a strong- company to mine the coal that  is so necessary in the  development of  the mines.    It certainly does appear a  hardship that those possessing  the necessary  enterprise   to   undertake   the  work' of   developing-   local   properties  should be restricted by the  operations  of an Act granting land to  a railway  promoter.    Their   prospecting .with  a  diamond drill will result as beneficially  to Mr. Heinze, who does nothing-, as to  themselves, since the  coal  lands  tied  up are adjacent to the claim upon which  the drill will be operated.   Experts who  have examined the coal state that it is.  well, adapted for coking purposes... The  prospecting with the diamond drill.will  be watched with interest  by   all  those  interested in mines in this district; for  should the work result as  anticipated,  there is a strong*  probability  of  mine  owners joining- tog-ether for the purpose  of   erecting   a   smelter   on   Bouridairy  Creek.

Rossland Miner: Two g-old bricks  containing- 1,094 ounces of bullion and  valued-at about $17,500, the result of  the last clean-up at the Cariboo mine,  were broug-ht down from Gamp McKinney on the 9th inst. and are 'now stored  in the vaults of the Traders' bank in  Spokane.' Mr. M. Cowley, president of  the Cariboo Co., said it was the intention of the company to expend $30,000  0in the purchase of additional machinery and other improvements at the  mine this summer. Work on the improvements has already been com-  -men.eed.; The 10-stamp will be increased to triple that capacity, and when all  the machinery is put in and the improvements completed the output will  be more than doubled. In view of the  expenditure of this larg-e sum of money  no������tnofe dividends will�� be declared for  the present ���":'���'.���  Wanted !   A Railway;.  An excellent criterion of the necessity for railway communication between  Greenwood and the commercial centres  is to be found in the  larg-e  number  of  people coming- into thedistrict and the  quantity of freig-ht that is being-  hauled by   teams  from  Marcus  to  Greenwood.    A person; travelling-  by  stag-e  over;. this route' is almost sure to pass a  score -of   four-horse  "teams    drawing-  wag-g-ons heavily laden with g-oods  for  the Greenwood merchants. During- the  past   month   over  seven   car-loads  of  freig-ht have  been  broug-ht  by  teams  from Marcus  to  Greenwood,   and  exclusive of the cost of carriag-e by  rail,  the merchants of Greenwood have paid  freighters   upwards  of $3,000  for  the  conveyance of g-oods.   The  history  of  the  success    attending-   the  construction of a railway into Kootenay  from  the American side will, in all probability, repeat itself in  Boundary,'- unless  the C.P.R. profit by the Jesson  experience should have broug-ht with it.  The  C.P.R. failed to realize the.importance  of  the trade 'ofi��o6ibiia.y  and  while  hesitating on a qtiestiori of expenditure  a -shrewd   American   built a  railway  across the international boundary line  into the country and thereby  enriched  himself and the city of Spokane.    The  same shrewd American, Mr. -Corbin, is  now offerings cheaper freig-ht rates than  the G:P.I-. to the people of Boundary,  and if reports be true he intends steal-  ing-'a further march on the slow-g-oing-  Canadian railway  companies by  connecting- this district  with   his  line  of  railway.    All who are interested in the  healthy development  of  the  province  would be  better  pleased  if Boundary  Creek and. the mining-districts  to  the  north and west of it were connected by  rail with the coast cities;  but miners,  prospectors and men of business here  are   so  firmly  convinced  that  untold  wealth now hidden, in the  surrounding-  mining- camps will be produced as soon  as railway connection is  secured   that  they  will. hail  such   connection   from  any quarter.   The trade of the country  lying- between Hope mountain and  the  international boundary is well  worthy  the effort of any railway corporation to  secure,    and   if   Canadian   or  British  Columbian companies hope  to  be the  successful   competitors  this  end   may  only be effected   by  the  most  prompt  and decided measures.  W.'T. Smith, manager of the Republic Mining- Co., owning- valuable claims  in Smith's camp, reports encourag--  ing-ly anent the showing- on the company's; properties. The work on the;  _L,ast Chance is being- pushed,���a contract having been let to Messrs. Connors and Castleman to extend the  present shaft from the 60-foot level ,  fifty feet further.

The assessment work has been completed on the Montezuma, in Greenwood camp.  J. Jermyn has a force of men at work  on the Nug-g-et, adjoining^ the Gold  Drop, in Greenwood camp. '  Mr. McKenzie, of the Greenwood  Gold Mining-Co., left this week to inspect a property at Bossburg-, of which  he received most nattering- accounts.  Next Tuesday-- half-interests  in ^fhe=  Mammoth and Sunrise claims on Prior  creek,  owned  by  F.   S.   MacFarland,  will be sold by the deputy sheriff,   Mr.  Elkins, at public auction. \  Representatives of a syndicate of  capitalists of Portland, Ore., have visited the camp during- the; past two  weeks and examined the Winnipeg, in  Wellington, with a view to purchasing  ; the property.  Bill Eewis, formerly foreman at the  Jewel, has been engaged by Mr. L/eslie  Hill to assume the foremanship for a  company owning- the Vancouver group  of mines in the Slocan, and will leave  next week for Nelson.  Ken. Henley, a well known prospector from Coeur d'Alene, spent several  days in the vicinity of Rock Creek and  then returned to Marcus. It is reported  that Mr. Henley has secured an option  on some promising properties for Spokane capitalists.  Work was commenced last week on  the Crown Point claim, on James creek.  According to the opinion of the experienced miners who are w-orking on the  property, the Crown Point has as g-ood  a surface showing- as any of the best  prospects in the camp.  It is expected that the Tamarack  contract will be completed within the  next two or three days, the rock proving- much softer than was anticipated  very rapid progress has been made  with the work. Some magnificent ore  is now being- encountered in a three-  foot lead, showing- native copper.' The'  Tamarack is a very promising prospect and ore can be found at almost  any spot on the claim.  Mr. H.J. Donnelly, an experienced  mining- man who spent several years  in South Africa, arrived in Greenwood  a few clays ago and will remain here  for some time. Mr. Donnelly is well  pleased with the district but thinks a  law should be enforced compelling the  removal of stakes on all claims upon  which no assessment work has been  done. Stakes being- upon abandoned  claims, give bona fide prospectors a  great deal of trouble.  Mr. Hedley, who was connected with  the Hall Mines Exploration Co. for  some time, has visited several mining  camps in Boundary Creek district with  the object of g-athering- information re-  g-arding- the best place to erect a smelter. Mr. Hedley is fully impressed with  the necessity for a larg-e smelter to assist in the development of the mineral  resources of the district. Should the  Rock Creek coal mines turn out a g-ood  quality of coking coal there will be no  difficulty in securing the necessarj'  capital to erect a smelter.  Messrs. Seymour & Co. are making-  several improvements to the Windsor  hotel, among other things the building-  is being rustic-ed aud a wide veranda  added.  New Advertisers.  Several wholesale firms of VictGkria  fully appreciate the importance of the  growing- trade of Greenwood and vicinity, and by advertising in The Times  have adopted an excellent plan of  bringing-their g-oods to the notice of  local merchants.

The court-room was crowded with interested spectators on  Tuesday  morning last when Dr. Jakes  appeared  before Mr. J. Kerr, J.P., to answer  to  a  charge of incommoding- and impeding  a passenger, Mr. G. T. Hodson, on the  public  street.    The   information    was  laid by   Provincial   Constable  IDlkins.  Messrs. Mclveod and X/eamy,   who  appeared for the defendant, strongly   objected to the fact that their client  had  been summoned  under  the  Vagrancy  Act, the magistrate agreeing that  Dr.  Jakes should not have been summoned  under this Act.    With   the  consent  of  the prosecution, the case was  dismissed.    From   the    evidence   it   appeared  that the cause for  the   altercation   between Dr. Jakes   and  Mr.   Hodg-son is  a private one which  will   probably  be  ventilated in the courts.    On  Tuesdav*  afternoon Dr. Jakes was charg-ed  with  common assault.    Mr.   McL,eod  raised  the objection that the  Doctor was  acquitted in the morning-  and  could :,tiot  be re-tried on  the  same  evidence ;  he  also pointed out that one justice of the  peace could  not  try  an   assault  case.  His Worship noted the objections  and  fined the defendant $10.    The case will  probably be appealed.  I  __/j^vv\i^vvy;��\\!to'-AV\o-.vv\ca*^^^  j W.J. ARMSTRONG &C0.;Jm��-:  :?!?

Dan Stewart and Arch.

Stewart  and Felto and found that it ran over 40  ounces in silver with a trace of gold.  From a cursory examination, Messrs.  Stewart and Felto came to the conclusion that the vein on the Sally was  about 20 in. in width, while that on the  Rob Roy ran from five to six feet and  could be traced for a long distance. A  larg-e number'of prospectors are going  into the district in which the claims  are located.  e^K_��_>^.-_____K __cn.T_r����T�����!?!>����������� *"e_i"'_n:_____-r,��.__M:  JOHN  A.
