A Weekly Paper published in the interests ot the Boundary Creefe Mining District.
Vol. II.
35 No. 9.
<5"*"i OMPLAINTS have been again and again made of a
\V»") lack of accommodation, and of discourtesy on the
part "of tHe C.P.R. agent at Penticton, Mr. Scadding.
A local firm have been much inconvenienced lately . in receiving by teams arriving here, contrary to their special
instructions to the freighters, goods such as.stoves,, rubber
boots, etc., for which there is obviously no demand at present, in place of dry goods and summer clothing which are
immediately required and for which the teams had been
specially /despatched. Moreover, the ,cost of : freighting
these unnecessary" articles from Penticton is, while the rQad
is in so bad' a condition, from 1 to 1)4 cents .above the regular charge. The freighters, when expostulated with for
not following their instructions^ lay the responsibility upon
Mr. Scadding who, they allege, absolutely compelled, them
to take the goods he Himself had decided should.be removed.
Mr. Scadding has, we are ready to admit, by no means a
sinecure in his position as freight agent at Penticton, but
if-this statement of affairs is correct of course he, as well as
the railway company, must be given to understand that it
will not be tolerated. :. -'
Apropos of freight matters,  the  existing arrangements
between the C.P.R. and Mr. Snodgrass for  the, delivery of
goods at Okanaga^FalJUs is  anything  but  satisfactory  to
the general public^ and the consequence is that the  company are defeating their own aims.    When Mr.  Snodgrass
stated that he proposed to enter into arrangements with^th'e'
C.P.R. to carry freight to Qkanagan Falls from  Penticton,
by steamer on Dog lake—thus decreasing the freight rates
from the transportation company's  terminus  to Boundary
by cutting off 14 miles of  an  execrably  bad road—he was
strongly backed up, and delegates  were  sent  from  G-reen-.
wood    to  interview  the   officials   regarding    the   matter.
But it was all along understood that- the  C.P.R.  would  be
responsible for the  safe  delivery  of the  freight  at  what
would practically be the  new  terminus,   Okanagan  Falls.
Not only is this not the case, but .things are so . muddled up
that the unlucky shipper never knows " where he are.'-* For
instance, freight cannot be removed from Penticton  until
all charges have been paid ; consequently what is the benefit of Mr. Snodgrass' arrangement to us ?    No ;   the C.P.R.
either want the trade of this district or they do not.   If they
do, then they must make Adequate concessions immediately;
if not, then the  present  arrangements  may „ continue  and
the traffic will  as a matter of course follow its original
channel—-via Marcus;
Those who have the pluck and enterprise to engage in
business in Boundary■ suffer under? many disadvantages. In
most sections of the province, for example, the 30 days
or 60.-days grace allowed by the wholesale houses to storekeepers has some significance ; here it has none. . For
many weeks may frequently pass after the expiration of
the.time-.:.ere.'.'the shipments^ doubtless much bedraggled,
eventually turn up.
Our Midway contemporary philanthropically suggests, in
its last issue, that application should be made for the es-
tablishment of a money order** office; at Greenwood. As this
' * concomitant of civilization " was "graiited to Greenwood,/
and officially opened by P.O. Inspector Fletcher moire than
six months ago, this suggestion /though doubtless well
meant and quife%6rthy\"of^.'a''. Rip Van Winkle, 'is rather
pointless. We have some recollection of hearing on a for-,
mer occasion of the sad demise of Queen Anne. At the same
time we opine our contemporary will quite agree with us:
that the remuneration of postmasters in rural districts is
ridiculously small in comparison with the amount of work
they. are. called upon to perform and the extra labor entailed
in attending to the money-order part of their d^uty is anything but trifling. In Greenwood it.often happens that the
postmaster is occupied throughout the entire day with his
multifarious duties of sorting and despatching mails^ registering letters, filling in money-order forms and selling
stamps, not to mention- answering all kinds • of questions
relevant or irrelevant as the case may be. And all .this,for
the magnificent salary of $40., per quarter !,." Complaints"
have been registered-, and in the majority of" cases certainly
with reason, concerning the alleged carelessness—and occasionally the discourtesy—of postmasters in the rural districts. But when one considers that the pay is more kicks
than ha'pence, it must be acknowledged that the efficiency
of/the officials-is very muchr,higher: th,an the, public > have' a
right to expect under the circumstances. If in the future a
man feels a desire to grumble, let him pour out the vials pf
- his wrath upon the Department at Ottawa. .,
jMs.      ^fe      iSfe
Jm    Every prospector in the country will be.gratified  to:hear
that the extraordinary decision delivered by the Chief Jus-
tice at Nelson regarding the Paris Belle case, has  been re^'
-■ versed by the f uif court.   If the decision of the Chief Justice
had been sustained, it is not exaggerating to  say that  the
titles to fully 90 per cent, of  the  mineral locations  in  the
' province would have been invalidated.    Chief Justice Davie
maintained that the Paris Belle  was  not  a  valid  location
u because mineral was not  found  in  place ; and  he defined
■ " mineral in place " to be mineral " found between defined
'walls,"    Now some of the richest mines in  the world contain deposits of ore which it cannot be said are  bounded by-
what may be technically called walls ;   and  again,   certain
minerals are rarely if ever found in regular ledges;    Thus
to interpret the reading of the Mineral Act  in. this respect
literally is as obviously absurd as it would be to say that, a,
pine tree could not be called a tree because it had needles in
the place of leaves.  The law here, it is to be presumed, was
made for the prospector, and not the prospector for the law,
•and a prospector, naturally knows better what he means'by
r the term " mineral  in place"  than  men  who-understand1
nothing about prospecting.    For instance,   if  we  have  aid
Act respecting (say) horses and a dispute  arises   anent  the,
ownership of what is known locally  as  a   buckskin  horse;: ,
The Act mentions nothing  about  buckskin  horses,   but it
speaks of light bays.    Am I to lose my claim  to my  horse ,•
because I call it a buckskin and not a light bay ?  Both Justice IVIcCreight arid Justice Drake evidently took  this view. '
The former in reviewing the case said :   "The Act provides1
that the discovery post be placed  where there  is   ' rock  in
place.'    This means sufficient valuable deposits of minerst!
capable of being mined, the word ' valuable' being denned
as ' capable of being  mined.'"   Justice McColl  made the
important statement that ".the ,/grantee^will riJeyer(i find it
possible to successfully attack  the  certificate of  improvements of a mineral: claim unless able to show fraud.''    It is
understood that an appeal will be taken to the Privy Council.
The first definite' step towards the incorporation -of Greenwood as a city has been taken, and it is to be hoped that
within a month or/six weeks at the furthest the town will
be governed by a local board. The first council must, however, adopt the motto " Festina lente," and stick to it. Another word of advice-—L/et the townspeople unite in advancing the common interests; a house divided against; itself
cannot stand.

$ pi THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES*  MINING NOTES.  Preparations are being made by the  Old'Ironsides Co. to commence work  on the Knob Hill, in Greenwood camp.  Jim Dale will leave to:morrow (Sunday) for the West Fork, to commence  work on the Carmi. Alex. Wallace has  also left to prospect up Kettle river.  The Republic Mining- Co. have resumed work on the I^ast Chance, in  Smith's camp, and intend this summer  to continue the present shaft down to  a depth of 200 feet.  Quite a number of prospects are now  being- worked on Pass creek and all  are showing- up well. Two parties left  this week to develop claims in that  camp. Al. Clifford is sinking- on the  Side-hill Star.  A good* strike is reported to have  been made near the Carmi, up the West  Fork of Kettle river, by the party of  prospectors sent out-a couple of weeks  ago by Messrs. Wood, McMann and  Olsen & Phelan, a fine body of galena,  four feet wide having- been encountered  which was traced on the surface for  over 2,000 feet.  The underground working's > on the  No. 7 have been temporarily abandoned  the drifts being- full of water, and until the snow leaves the upper altitudes  in the vicinity (which will probably  not be for two weeks to come) no attempt will be made to keep the water  out. Meantime the vein at the upper  end of the claim is being- explored by  means of a small shaft which is now  down 25 feet.  The Boundary Creek M. & M. Co.  this week put a for.ce. of men on the S.  H. B., which is situated within a  stone's throw of Greenwood. The ore  on this property is  copper pyrites and  . assays as hig-h as $40 from the surface.  " Although the shaft has been barely,  started, the ledge���for there are '.per- ���  fectly defined walls���has widened from .  a few inches to 4 feet of solid andmag-  nificent looking- ore, and the miners  themselves are very much excited over  the fact. Mr. C. M. Shaw, C.E., went  up on Thursday to survey the company's claims.  ^".������-s-r-       A Blind Lead Struck.  After running- an open cut on the  Golden Crown for 35 feet, a blind lead  was struck in the face of the hill; the  ore, which is of quite a different character from that heretofore encountered  . on the property, assays 6 per cent, copper, $5 in g*old, and, several ounces in  silver. There is of course nothing at  present to warrant the assumption  ���'that the discovery is of any particular  !value, yet the find is important in the  sense that it bears out to a certain degree the belief that the whole of the  hill, occupied by the Golden Crown  claim is intersected with.mineral-bear-,  ing- veins. -Anyone who has visited  the property, will attest that wherever  work has been prosecuted in every instance mineral Rearing- rock has been  ���uncovered; In the course of a week of  so the company will probably considerably increase their present force of  miners.:     -��������� ���'"- .:  Mr. Cuppage on Road Improvements.  Mr. C. V. Cuppage, the road inspector for this district, visited Greenwood  on WednesdayJand was interviewed by  our representative.  ��� " Is it true,'' was asked, "that, as reported in the Vernon News, the appointment of another road superintendent has been made ?"  "No ; the News was evidently misinformed.

A good many whom Ip employed  objected to this and demanded their  wag-es when they were dismissed. But  I succeeded in g-etting- three gang's to  work  and   two   foremen,  arid I  then  r]      ; '  went to Vernon and engaged Mr. Bates  as foreman for the third gang-. He has  eig-ht men under him."  " What do you think of the old arrangement qf, waiting- until the revenue has been collected before the  roads are repaired ?"  " I think it al tog-ether absurd, and  what I propose to do is this : I have  asked for a pretty larg-e appropriation  this year, and I mean to reserve an adequate sum (say three or four thousand  dollars) for putting* the roads-in a  decent state of repair in the spring-.  That is decidedly the best time of the  year for carrying-, out the work on the  roads, for you can then see just where  the bad and impassable spots' are.  There has been a g-ood deal of kicking  this year, and merely for- the sake of  peace and quietness I have on one or  two occasions advanced money out of  my own pocket and paid men to improve parts of the, main road which  were in. particularly bad. condition.  -Really thoug-h, you know, the teamsters themselves are to blame to a certain extent for over-loading- wagons  with from 50,000 to 60,000 lbs. cutting- up  the roads fearfully. Then one wag-on  will make one rut g-oing- through a  mud hole, and the next that passes  will make a new rut. If, however, as  you remarked, the work of repairing  was done early in the year and culverts  were put in where needed, the roads in  this section would be by no means bad  for a new country; "  LOCAL NOTES.

In view of the interest that is  likely  now to be taken in the development of  the Monarch, a short sketch of the history of the claim   may  not  be  out  of  place:   The  ground  now  occupied  by  the Monarch was originally covered by  two claims  of   1,500x600 feet,  one  of  which   was  known  as  the  Mammoth  and located by Joe Taylor and  George  Rumberg-er.    In '92 both claims having  been allowed to run out Tom Humphrey  was put on the ground by Bob Denzler  who knowing the prospective value  of  the  claim   strongly   advised    him    to  " stay with it."    In those days a  prospector would as a rule turn up his nose  at anything that did not run away   up.  But at  any rate - Humphrey  took  the  advice and staked���as allowed  by  the  amendment to the Mineral  Act, '91���a  full claim, 1,500x1,500, which he called  the Monarch.'    The  assessments  were  kept up for  a year, and  then   Messrs.  Farrell & Midgeon  bonded  the  claim  for $15,000.    A shaft was sunk 75  feet,  but owing  to  inaccurate calculations,  away from the  ore  body.    This  bond  was therefore   allowed  to  lapse.    The  B.C. & M. P. & P. Co. also later allowed their bond to lapse, the satisfactory  returns of the assays  made  from  the  rock, brought to the surface by the diamond drill notwithstanding.    Since  it  is learnt that  Mr.   Turner,  this  company's manager, has expressed sincere  regret that the payments were not met  and has gone so far as to  make  other  offers, though of course these could not  now be considered.    In January of this  year   Mr,   W.   H.   Young  bonded  the  claim for $15,000,   buying  outright the  Tamarack which lies south of the Monarch, and  bonding  the  Dandy,   south  again of the Tamarack, for $7,500. The  same vein is supposed to run   through  all three properties and to crop out  on  the Gold Drop, where it has been shown  by a crosscut tunnel to be over 100 feet  wide.    The assays on the Monarch run  as hig*h as $50   and  $60,  while native  copper is found on the  Tamarack  and  decomposed quartz which   assays from  $35 to $50 in free gold.  It is Mr. Young's present intention  to do sufficient work at once on the  Tamarack to entitle him to a crown  grant. The development of these properties will be watched with great interest, not only because upon the result  depends to a certain extent the immediate investment in Boundary of English capital by the syndicate represented by Mr. Young, consequent upon the  .success of this first experiment (as it  were), but in the hope and belief that  other names can be added to the list of  prospects in Boundary that are entitled  to be called mines.  The Incorporation of Greenwood.  Registered owners of town proper  (of which there are but 79) are being  asked to sign a petition now in circulation for the incorporation of Greenwood  "as-a- city. Of these 79 persons possibly  20 are non-residents, but it is expected  that there will be fully 50 ��ub��cribers  to the document. On the lisjt .some 15  are eligible to hold office as aldermen  and four are fully qualified for the  niayoralty,  Street Improvements.  A meeting of the business men   and  resident   lot   owners  on    Government  street was held in the school-house on  Thursday night for the purpose of discussing the best method of  improving  the grade and appearance of the street.  Mr. Shaw, C.E., who was present,   exhibited   a   map  showing  the  existing  irregularities���in   one  place,   opposite  Messrs. Rendell & Co.'s   store, the rise  from  the  opposite  side  of  the  street  being six feet.    After some discussion,  Mr. Shaw was   asked  to  estimate  the  cost of cutting down the rise  two  feet  from the south side of Messrs. Rendell  & Co.'s store  to  Short  street,   and  it  was   also decided  to meantime   raise  funds sufficient to carry out this  work  at once in addition to laying sidewalks  on both sides of the street and placing  a substantial bridge the full  width  of  sixty   feet   across   Twin   creek.    Mr.  Wood signified that the  townsite  proprietors   intended  to  extend   Government street a mile  and a  haljf through  the   Dillier  addition,   making  a  good  road thereto.

Aspin-  wall and Mr. W. H. Young, representatives of an exceedingly wealthy English syndicate whose affairs in America  are managed by Mr. R. E}. Brown, of  Spokane. This gentleman, it will be  remembered, gained a certain amount  of enviable notoriety a few months ago  by the fortunate termination of his  suit against the Transvaal government, whereby he was awarded $1,000,-  000 damages.  With Mr. Young  our  representative  enjoyed a very  interesting  chat.    Mr.  Young is one of the best known mining  men in the West and his  opinions are  certainly worth listening to.     In reply  to a  question,   he  said :  " What  do  I  think   of  Boundary?     Well,   as   you  know I am not very familiar  with   the  camp, but I think  I know   enough   already to say that it., is   at  the  present  time the most promising   mining  section.in the whole of British Columbia ;  and  mind  you  I  am  pretty   familiar  with most of the camps in the province.  But you will have to wait until you get  transportation before you see any great  excitement here.    I don't say you  will  have to wait long, recollect ; but in the  meantime men with means  will   come  in and buy. property  and   hold   it.    In  my opinion the C.P.R.   will  build  the  first railroad into Boundary, and English and Canadian  capital���not American���will   develop   your   mines.      In  L/ondon everything is now very  quiet,  African   shares   have   tumbled -right  down, but attention is being turned  to  British Columbia���much  more so than  a few months ago.    What a wonderful  province this is no one has yet properly  estimated.    Mr. Aspinwall. and I have  travelled down from  Vernon   and  we  saw some wonderful showings of mineral up there.    In the  station "agent's  office at Penticton I picked up   a  piece  of rock one side of which was  literally  coated  with  wire  gold.     We  tried  to  find out where it came from but no one   j  seemed to know.    However, our people  are now sending out a party of  seven,  under charge of a  competent  assayer,  to prospect westward from  here,   and  we intend to learn   all  we  can  about  this country.    To-morrow (Thursday) I  am going up to Greenwood camp to see  about the work we propose to do on the  Monarch and Tamarac.    The development will be commenced at once   and  very probably both claims will be continuously worked  fron-T now  on.    Before   leaving   Boundary   I   also   hope  to visit the Big Copper.    I have  heard  so much about the claim  that  I   want  very much to see it.    Remember this,"  said Mr.; Young, as he shook  hands  at  parting,   "you  have  here  one  of the  greatest mining  camps   in   the  world,  but you must have a little patience."  Mr. Phil. Aspinwall, it is predicted,  will be one of the first, by successful  transactions in B.C. mining property,  to take rank as a millionaire. He has  already *made large sums in Rossland,  recently; selling his share in the Columbia & Kootenay mine for a quarter  of a million. It is a favorable augury  when men of this stamp visit the camp,  The first Japanese servant to find  employment in Boundary has been engaged by Messrs. Hill & Hodgson at  the "Government House," Greenwood.  The Japanese make good servants and  good citizens, and in this respect are  distinctly to be preferred to the " heathen Chinee " of the same class.  _ariti*3&fe>j.  ineral Glasses and Prospecting Compasses.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  THE   DIAMOND   JUBILEE.  The committee appointed at last  week's meeting/to arrange for the commemoration of Her Majesty's diamond  jubilee, met on Monday and several  projects, among others the endowment  of a cot in the hospital and the establishment of a public library, were discussed. Regarding these two plans  mentioned, which were the most approved of those proposed, it was feared  that it would be out of the question to  attempt to raise a sum sufficiently  large to carry out either in a proper  manner. Mr. Robt. Wood then very  generously offered, with the consent  of Mr. Galloway, a plot of land containing from five to ten acres on the  Dillier addition to the townsite, to be  devoted as a public park and recreation  ground ; and after the coriimittee had  viewed the ground they gratefully accepted Messrs. Wood & Galloway's  offer, deciding to raise subscriptions  for the purpose of clearing the road  and laying. off the site as may be  deemed best. In the meantime tenders will be called for, to find out what  the expense of the work will be, but it  is hoped that the ground will be in  readiness by the 22nd of June, to admit of a cricket match being played  thereon between elevens representing"  Greenwood a^hd Midway.'  The plot donated can without ques-'  tion, under skilful management", be  converted into a very beautiful- park  which will be named after the Queen.  Boundary creek winds through it, and  the land being sub-irrigated vegetation  is not affected by the summer heat and  cottonwood, taniarac and spruce trees  afford shade from the sun.    It is con-  t  fidently expected that the people of  Greenwood, who never yet have failed  to respond heartily when asked to contribute towards an object calculated to  benefit the community, will on this occasion���when in addition to this consideration the opportunity of proving  their loyalty also occurs���further the  efforts of the committee by donating  handsomely to the fund.

Tenders are being called by Mr. Iyes-  lie Hill for a 50-ft. shaft, 3^x7, to be  sunk on the Crown Point, James creek.  J. W. Barker, foreman at the Skylark  mine, has thrown up his job, he and  old " Jerry " having found other employment.  Tom McDonnell, went up this week  to work on the Wolverine, at Rock  Creek, a claim having an immense  surface showing of quartz upon which  he has an option.  Work was started on the 250-foot  cross-cut tunnel on the Sunsef-'Oii^Wed-  nesday. The tunnel is being driven  from the lime contact on the south to  tap the ledge.  Work was resumed this week on the  Canadian, in Skylark camp. A tunnel  is being driven to cut the formation  and thereby determine the permanency  of the two veins to a depth of 200 feet. -  Work is to be started immediately on  the Anchor and Enterprise claims" in:"  /Long X<ake camp, recently acquired by  a Toronto syndicate. A concentrator  will be put in, and a stamp-mill if the  development of the property justifies it.

The secretary of the Commercial  Club received a letter this week from a  jeweller in Minneapolis, Minn., asking"  for information respecting Anaconda  as affording a likely opening for a jeweller. He particularly wished to know  if there was any great demand in  . Boundary for diamonds ! [Most certainly; the demand exceeds the supply. ]  The approaches to the new bridge  spanning Boundary creek and connecting Butte avenue with the Copper  camp trail, were completed on Tuesday.  At the meeting of the club on Wednesday the question of the advisability  of building a roado from Anaconda.. to  Copper camp was taken up. Messrs.  Keffer and , Tholl were appointed a  committee to interview Mr. Wood respecting the burning of brush on the  land owned by him, known as the Porter pre-emption. Unless this brush is  burnt off at once, the danger to the  town would be considerable should a  fire break out in the summer months.  Dangers from Falling Trees.  The shack occupied by Mr. A. H.  Harrison, near Boundary creek, was  much damaged by the falling across it  of a tree blown down by the wind. The  duty of felling, or seeing that it is,  done, dead and rotten trees near inhabited buildings or the roadsides should  devolve,one would imagine, upon some  person. The other night, without any  warning, a tree fell across the road between Anaconda and Greenwood, striking the ground within a few yards of a  couple of passers-by, who were naturally not. a little startled.  Black Stumps and " Blue" Devils.  The townsite company and also a  number of private householders are engaged and have been for the past two  weeks, clearing lots by removing unsightly stumps and burning piles of  brush in different parts of the town.  The result is that Greenwood is beginning to assume the appearance of a  place where a self-respecting man may  live without suffering from chronic  melancholia. . There are of Course, as  there must be in every community, certain individuals so lymphatic or so utterly soulless.that sooner than spend a  small sum or work a few hours to make  their property look less like a howling  wilderness, they would sit comfortably  down under the shadow of a dusty  brush heap for years. What this class  of people want is a course of Ruskin  knocked into them with a club of suit*-  able knobbiness and bruising capability.

The  bill g*ives the company power to appropriate and use the waters of Boundary  creek and Boundary falls for domestic  and other purposes.  A recent assay of ore from the Boundary Falls went $50 in free gold. The  company owning the claim have received from a San Francisco firm an  offer to erect a stamp mill on the property, payment to be made in paid-up  treasury stock at par. The offer is under consideration.  An amendment to the amendment of  the alien clause in the Mineral Act has  been introduced in the House by Mr.  Graham. This amendment provides  that aliens may take out free miners-  licenses to enable them to work in the  mines, but no alien can locate a mineral claim unless he has first declared  his intention of becoming a British  subject.  The steam pump ordered some time  ago for the Jewel has at length arrived  but until the road to Ivong lake is improved it will ce impossible to move  the machinery to the mine. The north  drift on the Jewel is now in 26 feet on  the vein, and the south drift 24 feet.  The amount of water flowing into the  shaft is decreasing daily.  Mr. A. B. Anderson, who visited  Greenwood this week, reports that  business in Rossland is somewhat dull  at present. Mr. Anderson walked over  the Dewdney trail from Rossland. A  claim owned by him near Christina  lake, upon which work, is now being  done, is looking very well, a 6-foot  ledge of arsenical iron carrying high  values having been uncovered thereon.  Mr. Cuppage is making a tour of inspection through the district, in order  that he may learn where road repairing and improvements are most necessary. Mr. Wood and Mr. Collins have  both offered to advance money until  the government revenue is collected,  for putting the Greenwood camp road  in good condition. Mr, I/eslie Hill has  also agreed to build the Ivong lake road  on the same terms.  Mr. Leslie Hill has bonded the North  Star, in Iyong I^ake camp, on behalf of  the Prospecting Syndicate of British  Columbia, from Messrs. Wood and  Thomet for $12,000, . with the further  stipulation that work is to be started  on the property by the 1st of June. Mr.  Hill has stated that the syndicate he  represents will very possibly erect a  stamp mill at Ivong lake this year,  claim owners in that camp being  allowed the opportunity of having their  ore treated at a reasonable figure.
