Blclenberg's Mining Operations Has  lirouslit a New Camp to ?t'ie' Front. The  Biickhorn, Arlington Burns and Iron Top  Groups. Immense Ore Bodies-Good Values.v  . Probably no early pioneer of the  Boundary creek country deserves as  much credit for its rapid development  as E. A. Bielenberg-. From-the time he  sold the Anaconda group to the present  da!y he has spent largie sums of ��� money  in increasing- the list of big properties  in the district. Mr. ��� Bielenberg individually, has. spent over $25,000 in  purchasing aud developing properties.  That he lias been successful is due to  his pluck and perseverance more than  to any, favors showered upon ' him  bjr dame fortune. Up to the time Mr.  Bielenberg began ; operations' there,  South Deadwood was an unknown and  unappreciated.mining camp. To-day  it is attracting the attention of mining;  nien bacause of the rich ore bodies uncovered by his efforts. ','.-"  Mr. Bielenberg had a long experience in the business world before coming to this district. . For two years he  managed a coffee plantation at the  headwaters of the Amazon in Peru,  South America. Afterwards he was  paymaster for five and a half years on  the Hutchinson estate Hawaiian Islands  owned by Claus Speckles of San Fran-  eisco the well known Sugar King. He  also.carried on mining operations in  Montana and after coming  to British  .......... -O- ;  ���   ��� "'.', V .....  Columbia ,w,as manager of the pioneer  store a?t Ainsworth in the well known  Slpcan mining, district. Mr. Bielenberg still .retains large and valuable  mining interests in the Slocan. Since  coming here he has been, ever on the  alert to secure valuable mining interests and his many friends are congratulating him upon the great success  which has attended his efferts. As  has already been stated.he is the father  of< South Deadwood camp. .Until the  winter of 1897 thiscamp was unknown.  Then Mr. Bielenberg purchased the  Buckhorn group and at once began  vigorous development work. The  Buckhorn group is no?,v classed among  the big properties of the Boundary  creek district, on account of its  large ore bodies and exceptionally high  values in gokt and copper, one ore  body averaging over 560. The Buckhorn was sold to a strong company at  the head of which is Rufus Pope, M.P.,  F. P. Buck and Messrs. Bailey of  Sherbrooke, Quebec. Mr. Bielenberg is also largely interested in the  company.  ��� Adjoining   the  Buckhorn  group are  the Arlington, Burns, Blue Bell, Buck  horn No. 2 and Burns fraction owned  by Mr. Bielenberg-. He has spent a  large sum in their development; On  the group are 10 shafts ranging from  17 to 40, feet in depth and 900 feet of  open cuts. This work discloses an ore  body 200 feet in length and 600 feet  wide on the surface. An ore body  which runs from the Buckhorn across  the Arlington and Burns has been un-  covefedfor a width of 212 feet by crosscuts and shafts. This ore was -sampled  by J. C. Haas, M. E., and Mr. Bielenberg and from the shafts dumps, and  open cuts they obtained from S15.45 in  gold and 20 1-5 per cent in copper down  to V/i per cent copper and. 65 cents in  gold. Twenty-five samples taken by  Mr. Haas and Mr. Bielenberg gave the  following values:  No.  Gold.

These  samples were taken from a distance of  212 feet across the ledge. When it is  considered that the samples were taken  from this distance without any preference being made for picked ore, it  shows there-is on the Arlington-Burns  one of the most rem.arka.ble ore bodies  in a district:of marvelous mining properties;    ! :'.- ? - ���'  '.'f .���  Lying directly west and north of the  Arlington-Burns is the Iron Top group,  also owned by Mr. Bielenberg, and  comprises . the Iron Top, Piccadilly,  Scranton, Copper Trust, Iron Top Fraction and Otis Fraction. Upon this  group marvelous bodies of copper-gold  ores Jiave been discovered and eleven  distinct ore chutes have been opened  opened up, either by shafts or crosscuts. The development work includes  eight shafts varying in depth from '40  feet to 16 feet and crossuts aggregating  over 900 feet. Development in the Iron  Top group disclosed ore dissimilar to  anything heretofore found in theBoun-  dary district, at least in Deadwood  camp. The ore is chalcopyrite and  bornite and seventeen assays . went  from 43 per cent copper, $8 in gold and  10 ounces in silver to 1^ per cent copper aud S3 in gold. This property will  be opened up by two parallel tunnels  300 feet apart, cutting the ore bodies at  right "angles.  The development of South Deadwood  j camp : has  attracted -tlie  attention of  j the  Canadian   Pacific   Raihvaj-   com-  I pany,   and   already   a  spur  from   the  Deadwood   branch  line   is   being   surveyed to pass   through   the  Buckhorn,  Arlington, Burns and Iron Top groups.  This   spur   will   be   built   early  next  spring and  will   afford   the   properties  cheap shipping facilities to the smelter  at   Greenwood,   only   one   and   three-  quarter miles distant from the camp.  The development of the properties  mentioned indicate that South Dead-  wood camp will soon become one of tlie  largest in the district.  BY...  j Special to the Times.  |     London, Nov. 23.���A dispatch to the  ; British secretary of war from   General  1 Methuen, dated Belmont, Nov. 22, says:  !

C. mine  in -Summit''camp, a most serious accident occurred, caused by a powder explosion and resulting in severely injuring William McBride, and A. L.  Watson in the face, as also William  Essenson,'slightly. The two former  were on Wednesday afternoon's train  taken to Rossland, where both have  their h ome. At the same time an eye  specialist from . Spokane was telegraphed for who met the injured men  at Rossland. Essenson, although receiving painful wounds, is at the B. C.  mine and able to be around. While  nothing definite is known here as to  the real extent of the men's injuries it-  is said that Watson will lose his eyesight. Both he and McBride were terribly burnt in the face.  The accident was caused through .the  non-explosion of one of the shots at  the time of the noon firing. The three  men went back into the mine after the  noon hour and started to muck out,  when, a pick struck the unexploded  charge causing a frightful explosion  and the men's injuries. Dr. Gordon,  of Phoenix, was hastily summoned, as  also was Dr. Foster, of Greenwood, before the arrival at the mine of the latter-physician, Dr. Gordon had attended  to the injured men and as far as could  possibly be done relieved the men of  their intense suffering.  ^nimtjmmmmrmfmmte-  QUARLES AE.

Mining: Properties Examined  AND    REPORTED   ON.  An Important Case.  A case of interest to all claim-owners  came up before Judge Spinks in the  county court held in Greenwood on  Tuesday last. It was an action brought  by John Mulligan against Louis  Fisher, of the Phoenix sawmill, claiming damages from timber cut;, and  taken from the Wheeling mineral  claim. The case was adjourned after  the evidence of the plaintiff was taken,  and one month was given the lawyers  in which to put in a stated case. It is  probable that ah appeal will be taken  from the decision of the county court  judge, no'matter which side wins, as  the action was brought principally to  obtain an interpretation of the mineral  act in reference to ownership of timber  oh mineral claims and uses to which  the timber can be put. The claim-  owners of the district have combined  to fight the lumber combine, and so the  case will in all likelihood be taken to  the supreme court, and the matter settled for all time.

The   Boers  dead   number  hundreds.    The  British   loss is slight.  The  plan   of  operations on both sides  unfold  slowly.    The Boer invasion  of  Cape  Colony   continues   steadily   and  rapidly   to prevent junction of British-  forces   at   Estcourt . and    Ladysmith.  Delayed    Cape   Colony    reports    announces  the  arrival of more  German  officers   and  artillerymen-who  volunteered  service   with   the   Boers.    The  English plan is three-fold   to  advance  from    Durban     to   Ladysmith,   from  Orange river  to   Kimberly/ and from  East London via Oueenstown   to   Bur-  ghersdorp.    The British hope to early  secure the complete control of Orange  river.    The debarkation  of troops  at  Capetown is progressing satisfactorily.

GREENWOOD.  ft THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  A Study in Booms.  A recent number of the National  Review contains an article on .tlie  .Klondike, under:the above caption, by  Ernest 33. Williams. The gentleman  may be right, or approximately so, in  his figures but his conclusion is wrong.  But here is what he says : He makes  the startling statement that about $50,-  000,000 have already been invested in  ���the Klondike, and that only about $20,-  000,000 have been taken out. He estimates the number of Klondike prospectors at 30,000, and figures that the  average amount spent by each is over  $1,500. With these figures before him  the gentleman says: "The world would  have .been $30,000,000 better off- if it  had never-heard of the Klondike." ,  The last remark will not meet  general endorsement. If his figures be  correct the( world will be the gainer by  $20,000,000, for that $30,000,000expended  are not lost they simply changed hands.  That is all. Of course hardships suffering and death have been the handmaids of those who pursued the trails  to Klondike, but they always hold office  in all ventures, They can't be reckoned  a factor against the $20,000,000 gained  in the last two year's privations. ��� We  are speaking about money now. "But  the-world is not done with Klondike  yet. There are, doubtless, millions  resting: under the ice, of that region  which may be thawed into the pockets  of jminers.. When;the final accounting-  shall be made it may be learned that  Klondike has paid for its discovery and  left a goodly sum to its credit.���Western; Mining World.     .  f; <Missingv; Ore '.Bodies.;?  ...'��� How haphazzard mining is after all,  and with what extraordinary persistence bodies of ore are -sometimes overlooked, remarks a mining exchange. A  case-in point is the recent discovery on  the surface of the Black Bear at Rossland. The Black Bear shows the outcrop of a ledge upon which pits have  been sunk from the flat on which the  L,e Roi compressor stands up to the  crest of the; hill. A- tunnel was also  started by the original locator, sup  posed to drift in off the vein. In all of  this work no indications of values were  discovered, and. the L,e Roi company  bought the claim, so it. is reported,' for  $500. The company continued the tunnel but desiring to use it as a melins of  exit-to? the mine,., bore away to the  north. This summer, to carry out the  proposed development scheme of the  lie Roi, this tunnel is being eriliarged  and 'improved', and extensive grading  was undertaken at the mouth, where a  shop for framing timbers was con  templated. ; This involved blasting the  top off the ledge capping, which has  been lying stripped'for years. The result was more than ten feet of beautiful ore, carrying fair values in gold  and high percentage in copper. The  portal of the tunnel is within six feet  of .this ore, Four sticks of giant powder and four hours' work; would have  made a difference to the original locator of between .$500, and $50,000, or if  he held his property till now, between  $500 and $500,000, but the tunnel started  above the ore and bearing north,1 remained above and to one side of it all  the way. The obvious moral is never  to run a drift tunnel to show up property without crpssctttting, and do not  be afraid of surface work.  The latest phase of the strike situation���the importation of Italian laborers���is a menace to the existence of the  city of Sandon, and, for that matter,  to the industrial welfare of every other  community in Kootenay. It is all  very well for the Mine Owners'Association to take whatever stand they  choose on matters political, but when  they undertake to displace British subjects with these ignorant, degenerate  aliens they overstep the mark and  threaten the business of many who are  dependent for their very existence on  the high class workmen who have  built the Slocan. Such a program will  not be quiescently accepted by the  citizens of the Slocan, and if the mine  owners find the affair assuming a na-  ional importance and themselves held  - up to execration throughout the length  and breadth of the land they may sooth  their wounded sensibilities with the  reflection that whatever they may suffer at the hands of an outraged public  and a disparaging press have been  brought on by their own actions.���Sandon Paystreak.  The Prospector.  There are prospectors and,���prospectors. There are those who have followed the calling of the prospector for  years. They occasionally strike a good  thing which they partially develop,' and  then sell out. They prospect for the  love of the business, and seem to be  happy only when with burro, or old  niare, loaded down with blankets, pick,  pan and shovel and "grub," they roam  over the mountains in search of something good���something that will fetch  :them a "homestake" or enough to go to  their native heath and dream away the  rest of their lives., They seldom or  inever realize the fruition of their  hopes. They, are "prospecting still.  No climate is.tootorrid, nonetoo frigid  to deter them from taking their  chances in the "stampede." , The  farther off the country the more alluring ��� the prospect - appears, distance  seems to lend enchantment to their  view.? ������ ��� ��''  Then again' there ,are prospectors  who engage,in the work from the force  of circumstances. They camp with  the first prospect they come across and  make or break by it. They don't, last  long, If it is a bonanza they have  struck they realize what they- can out  of it and return to pleasanter fields of  labor. At all events they^uit the business and follow some other callings;  Mountain 'trails know them ho more  forever. In the early days they were  called "summer prospectors," for they  hugged warm,stoves rather than a cold,  blanket' oh if rosty .ground; .TtieyJ" may'  have been wise in doing so, as far as  their personal comfort was concerned.  But they never founded new mining  camps, never opened new mining sections, nor called new-mining territories  or "states into existence.: The summer  prospector is a weak brother in "roughing it."  The great northwest is the creation  of . prospectors. The Forty-niners  deepened the tracks made by. the first  settlers of Oregon, and later by "the  pioneers of. Salt L,ake,;, and^made' a  great' state upon. the shores of the  Pacific. The genos prospector sprang  from the''golden sands of ths land of  sunshine and flowers. He panned from  Crescent City at the north to San  Diego at the south.''He pans no more,  but thotis'ands" have taken his place.  They have hewn the way, blazed the  trails and pointed, others to.thewonder-  fuliy rich mineral fields in what was  then *��� howling " wildernesses in -the-  "G-reat American Desert," but are now  the states of Nevada,-Colorado j' Utah  Montana, Idaho, Oregon- and ;Washing-  ton. These great, prosperous, wealthy  commonwealths are the fruits of the  prospectors' toil, of their daring, of  their perserviug industry and of their  bulldog-haug-on-utiveness to the place  where "colors" were found.  One may say? what he will, but he  must admit that the prospector found  the campiug grounds upon which  western towns and cities have since  been built ;?thut he opened the way  which made it possible for the iron-  horse ������ to race around our.great mountains into thriving mineral centers,  and that through his never tiring industry Alaska and Northern British  Columbia may yet enjoy the fruits  which an advanced civilization yields  to this smiling northwest.���Western  Mining World.'  The census returns of Dawson City  give the population as 4,445. Of these  Arabia, China, Greece and Holland  have but a single representative each.  Great Britain and her colonies, including Canada itself, contribute less than  one-fourth of the total, the number being 995. Of these 645 Canadians, 208  English, 69 Scotoh, 49 Irish and 25  Australians. The United States contributes over three-fourths of the total,  namely 3,205.  Luck in Mining.  Take two men and send them adrift  in a gold placer mining or quartz mining country. They are industrious,  hard-working frugal men. One lights  on a fortune and leaves with his colors  flying, and the assurance that the wolf  will be forever kept from his door, the  other retires as a broken-down, poverty-  stricken man. The first struck 'a  bonanza; the other found nothing. The  world smiles upon the one, it has none  for the other.  Follow these men further along life's  pathway. The man suddenly made rich  branches out for higher and larger  game; the poor man, who has Jeai'uo.i  much by an adverse experience, proceeds cautiously and makes a fortune.  He has felt the stings of poverty, lie is  now basking in the world's smiles on  the sunny side of Easy street. His former comrade, in search of wealth,  made missteps and is now a broken-  down, .poverty-stricken, discouraged  man. Who is the child of fortune, who  is the lucky man ? We answer, neither.  They were both painstaking, honest,  industrious and frugal. They are the  same.now. Luck cut no figure in the  case of either. They both did the best  they could. One became a wealthy  mine owner, whose name is a household word, the other is known by his  neighboJS as an unfortunate but honest  man.

BY  &  Publishing  J.;...Editor  .Manager  SATURDAY,  NOVEMBER,  25,  1899.  GREENWOOD'S  GROWING  TIME.  Two years  and a half has worked a  wonderful   transformation   in   Greenwood.    What a wonderful improvement  it is to ride on a  comfortable  C. P. R.  passenger coach instead of taking one's  life in one's hand in making a journey  by stage from Bossburg to Greenwood.  The writer endured all the terrors and  hardships of  that mountain  ride two  years and a half ago.     He found three  buildings  on Copper street���a village  rich  in  hopes  of a bright future but  poor   in  the concomitants of a prosperous   city.      It   was   interesting   to  watch  the old-timers who went to  the  station on Monday to see the first pas  senger coach,to wonder at the thoughts  that passed through their minds as the  iron horse came  majestically  into   the  station; as over 100 passengers stepped  from the comfortable coaches.    It was  something   new   to  hear  the plaintiff  notes'of irrepressible hotel runners, to  follow  travelers   to   the   Hotel   Armstrong and see obsequious porters rushing  hither  and  thither  looking after  the comforts of the guests.   There was  smething novel in the musical jingle of  electric belis, in  seeing telephone  and  telegraph    .   messengers      scurrying  through  the town .. in. their search  for  . new arrivals.    Then one.could not but  be impressed with'the coterie of municipal fathers viewing with satisfaction  the well graded streets and endeavor-  to convince themselves that everything  was all right, although the proceeds of  the latest loan are exhausted.  The evolution of Greenwood from a  ;dirty looking mining camp to a full-  fledged city has indeed been rapid.  Still many an old-timer hankers' after  the good old days and is anxious to move  elsewhere to enjoy the exhilaration and  hardships of pioneer days. They maybe just as happy as those who enjoy  the bustle of city life. After all it  matters little what 'the environments  are life is what one.makes it.  several mines in Greeenwood and  Wellington camps. There is nothing  speculative about the husiness of the  Boundary country. The permanency  of the mines has been demonstratea to  a sufficient extent to warrant the conclusion that no railway company will  have anything- to, complain of in re-  ���pect to the amount of business there  is to do.  THE BUSINESS CENTER.  It is an easy matter to arrive at conclusions, but not so easy to produce  proof. It is any easy thing to say that  the business center of a district is here  or there, but the bare statement carries  no weight. , We now make the statement that the business center of the  Boundary district is Greenwood. To  prove this we point to the records of  the C. P. R. freight department at  West Robson. They will show that  since the road has been completed to  Greenwood, 75 per cent of the freight  is billed for Greenwood. No more conclusive proof of the center of trade for  the district could be offered.  Winston Churchil a Prisoner at Pretoria.  Nbw York, Nov. 20.���[Special.] ���  .-Winston Churchill and the fifty-six  men taken prisoners by the Boers at  Estcourt have been sent to Pretoria to  be held with the Dublin fusileers.  General Methuen with a large force  of men is moving on Kimberly where  Cecil Rhodes is beleaguered. The detailed account of the battle at Ladysmith on the 9th says: Boers loss, 800;  the British loss was slig-ht. After the  battle the results were ascertained.  General White ordered a salute of 21  guns, in honor of the birthday of the  Prince of Wales amid cheers and a  scene of great enthusiasm, soldiers and  citizens participating.  The situation at Natal is complicated owing- to the loss of bridges,  Boers hold, railways at Ennersdale-  threatening Weenan and Estcourt. The  Cape Dutch seeing' the futility of their  cause are beginning to waver.  Special to The White Front, Greenwood, B. C.  General "White Still holds his position.

The Senilin g-overnment cannot fulfil its ejection pledges  without granting representation  to   the   Boundary  "district at   the   next   session   of   the  house.     Every member of the present  government and, all their supporters  were strong in  their denunciation of  the  anomalies and  inequalities of thie  last provincial franchise act.     Surely  if their criticisims were honestly made  and not for the purpose of finding- fault  with the last   g-overnment   the   very  earliest opportunity should be taken to  redress the wrong's created by that act.  There can be absolutely no justification for the practical disfranchisement  of the Boundary, creek district.'    The  question of political expediency cannot  be raised because there can  be. no  act  more popular than one which wipes but  a glaring injustice. Under responsible  g-overnment the right which the people  prize    most    hig-hly    is  the  right  of  proper representation.     At the time of  the passage of the franchise act Boundary  district was   entitled  to   separate  representation;   owing   to    the    very  rapid development of the  district and  large influx of people the right' to   representation is now muih stronger.  Mr. Martin the member for the  Rossland district should insist upon  the {[introduction of. an amendment  to the franchise act, granting Boundary district a representative. Before  his election he gave his pledge that at  the very "earliest opportunity he would  insist upon this being- done. Nearly  two years have elapsed since then and  the people of Boundary district will  soon become impatient at the nondelivery of election, goods. It is difficult to ascertain the polling strength  of the Boundary district but it is well  within the mark to say that there are  1,000 electors between Camp McKinney  and Christina Lake. Greenwood itself has 400 voters, a, number much  larger than that possessed by districts  having two representatives.  THE SHIPPING ERA.  Boundary Creek was not slow in  showing the world that if granted  transportation facilities it could maintain an output of or?. No sooner was  the spur' completed to the Oro Denoro  mine than business was offered to the  C. P. R. in the shape of ore to the  Trail smelter. The Boundary Creek  Mining and Milling company too have  aitshipment at the railway track. The  B.

The company is called the  Expansion Gold Mining company.  : Frank-Richter"..:the well known Kere-  meos cattle man is president, J. C.  Calhoun, official administrator, L,oom-  is, is secretary and Frank Jenkins,  Major Megraw and Mr. Sidley are in-  cludadin the board of directors.  Probably no Camp McKinney property has better surface indications or  can be more cheaply and economically  worked than the Anarchist group.  There are three claims in the group,  the Anarchist, Success and Dynamite.  The 'ledge has. been exposed for 600  feet.' <-It'-is four and a half feet wide  and mineralized throughout. For the  600 feet "there" are a" series "of shafts  varying in depth from 10' to 81 feet".  Thesameledge has been exposed at another point by a tunnel. With the property goes,what'is'practically* the only  available waterpower, in the vicinity of  Camp McKinney and which will have  to be utilized by.the town when waterworks are required. ' The water record-  gives a 40 horse power at the lowest  stage.- The-ore is free milling .quartz  and with this water power can be treated very cheaply. It is the intention~bf  the company to develop the properties.  A small block of treasury stocke.has  been?placed on the market.  THE LUMBER INDUSTRY.  Two Ble Companies are Acquiring Control of  ��� AHithe Mills.- ;;;.:���-���������..-.  The lumber, industry in the Boun;  dary. Creek country is in a' flourishing  condition; these'? days..,.-' The .rapid J development of the Boundary cities and  consequent erection of many building-S  and the large amount  of timber used  "in the mines, have "created such" a" "demand for lumber  that   the   mills   in  ? many ihsitarices. have been, kept running day and night.. This prosperity  among the mills has induced financiers  to give the lumber industry considerable attention, with the result that all  the mills are fast becoming the properties of two powerful: companies. It  was at'first intended"to create a lumber trust, but the principals in the deal  could not come to terms so two companies were organized. Messrs. Blue  & Fisher and Poupore & Genelle ainal-  gamed .their -interests in Boundary  Creek atidthe Slocan, .while Geo. O.  Buchanan, the Kaslo'lumber man, has  turned his attention to'the mills on the  other-side of the mountain, and it is  reported"that'he represents a million  dollar company which has secured con-?  trol of the mills along the North Fork  "and the main Kettle river. The deal  also includes valuable timber limits up  the North Fork. The company operating on this side this week purchased  W. S. Fletcher's extensive lumbering  interests. The deal includes' tire sawmill near Eholt.  LADYSMITH   COVERED.  By the  Frantic Boers���Kimberly Safe, but in  Need of Men Who Know How to Fight  Special to the Times. ,  ? New York, November 17.���London  advices say that the situation in lower  Natal is quite obscure notwithstanding  that 20,000 British troops have arrived.  The display at Estacourt is not easily  understood. A dispatch from Pretoria,  November 9, says that Ladysmith is  completely surrounded by Boers. At  midnight the Afrikander cannon  opened simultaneously, making a grand  pyrotechnic display, anl causing many  buildings to burn. The casualties are  unknown.  Kimberly was safe on November 10  but artillery and cavalry were badly  needed. The Boers have taken' Aliwal  North and hoisted the Free State flag.  President Kruger has issued a proclamation that there is to be no looting of  captured cities by the Boers. A new  armored train has been fitted out and  sent to Estacourt. In the absence of  definite news it may be taken that the  situation' is serious. General Buller  has the entire matter under his control,  and will probably turn up unexpectedly  and surprise the Boers and the world.  Misquoting Mr. Hamilton-  L. A. Hamilton, the land commissioner of the C. P. R., is entitled to the  sympathy of all western people. He is  so affable and good natttred that hecan-  not resist the importunities of  a  Win  nipeg Free Press reporter searching for  copy. So he talks about the west. The  reporter, in Iris Wisdom, attempts to  improve'-. .Mr. Hamilton's expressions.    Here is the result:  "L. A. Hamilton, land commissioner  of the C. P. R., who has just returned  from the coast, in reply to the interrogations of a Free Press reporter, supplied some interesting information regarding ithe mining operations in the  Boundary creek and Kettle river districts, through which the C. P. R. are  now running extensive railway  branches. He was greatly impressed  with the general progress made in the  country since his visit there only two  months ago. ' Of the British Columbia  Southern" road, an extension of the  Crow's Nest line, and on the Columbia  Western, there many/changes.. -Marked  development in the Fernie coal mines  could be noticed. The demand for  coal and coke has been so great that  that the coal company has established  a coal station at' Sparwobd on Mickle  creek and the ground is being cleared  for extensive sidings und for coke  ovens. The work of��� pushingtutinels  on the coal seams is being carried on  as fast.as men can be 'employed. ; At  Fernie thercis great business activity  and marked changes have taken place  at'Cranbrook by reason of" the construction of the North Star line. Grading on this line is nearly completed to  the vicinity of ' the North Star mine  aud Sulivan groups.? ? The^North Star  Mining company ��� have: constructed a  tramway to connect with the railway  and are building from Cranbrook to  Kimberley. : -������ ....���.;..-..,.���...~.~,t..,,.���  Considerable development is going  ononthe St. Mary's river.-~-Mines-are-  being developed and prospects for  large business in. that .section arei good.

Moyevillei and Moyie-in- connection  with tlie introduction 'of? concentrating;  and other works at these points. New  capital and new management is being  brought to bear on.'-the Trujeanj 'Movie  and Lake Shore and;.other..important  properties in that section. More activity is now being shown..on these.old  properties than in any of the newly  opened mining.districts.of.,the.west.L,.,..,  On the Columbia & "Western railway  a large gang of men are now working  on the Cascade waterpower, which,  when completed will supply, power for  the development of the properties in  tlie Kettle River-district, a strong English company, has'.secured the franchise for the investment of a large  amount of capital for the furthering of:  this concern. They are arranging for  the distribution of electrical power to  Rossland and Greenwood camps. The  water power will generate 10,000 horse  power and distribute electric power.  The town of Eholt on the Columbia  & Western was something of a revelation to Mr. Hamilton. He was there  two months" ago aridat that time .there  were no indications of a town. : It is  now a thriving-" town, " with stores,  hotels and houses, which are going up  in remarkable mariner. 1 Eholt vvijl  soon be connected with all the camps  in the Greenwood district. The town  of Greenwood has also made marvellous strides. The company at the time  of Mr. Hamilton's- visit,Miad a large  gang of men at..work on the new  freight sheds and yards, and working  on the the spur line, which was from-  Greenwood into the Deadwood copper  camp. The principal copper produced  in this mine will be shipped to upper  Grand Forks. A large smelter is being built north of the town, and they  expect to receive ores for treatment  from Nob Hill, Ironsides and other  properties in that locality. On the  whole, the development throughon t  this country is most gratifying, states  Mr. Hamilton, an3 will otic day repay  the company for the immense expond'-  tnre put into it for railways."  "Deadwood copper camp's" ores filing to upper Grand Forks while a big  smelter is being, built at home! i\ii->  Hamilton in the future should wnl.:  his own reports.  ;. The Canadian Pacific Telegraph  company have taken an" office in the  Rendell block on Greenwood street and  are now ready for business.

JAMES.   COOPER   MANUFACURING COMPANY,    Limited  MONREAL,  P. O.  Branch   Office, ROSSLAND, B. C, JAMES  D, SWORD, Mana��cr,, THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK' TIMES.  ''"-.'; Similkameen Notes;  The Similkameen country lying west  of the Okanagan  is nrjw, and in fact  has been during- the entire season,, at  '   attracting a  wonderful amount of attention throughout the northwest. The  Similkameen river rises in Washington,  '   high  up in the Cascades, in the tipper  Methow     region,    its   course     being  northerly   to   Princeton,,  and   thence  southeasterly   to   the   boundary   line;  about   100 .miles'.-of.;,its course being  ". through  British   Columbia.    Included  in  the valley of this stream and along  sides are the now well known camps of  Keremeos, Olalle creek, Fish lake, Upper Keremeos creek, Riordon mountain,  Fifteen-Mile creek, Sixteen-Mile creek,  Ashnola,  Twenty-Mile   creek,   Brom-  ��� ley's Jamieson's and Princeton.  Above Princeton and about twelve  miles south of that point the famous  Coppor mountain is situated. Just  ' across the river from Copperwmomitain  itseif, while,farther up stream, are the  less known but by no means unimportant camps on Friday creek and Roche  ���   river.  At Princeton the main river is joined  by the Tulntneen, locally known as the  "North Fork." This stream is probably 80 miles in length and flows  through a somewhat rugged and high-  lying region, which is known ,;to be  rich in mineral. Much prospecting  has -been done and hundreds of locations made along the Tulameen and  its tributaries, many of which are  spoken of as of much promise. There  is little room i for. doubt but that the  Tulameen region, which is in -reality a  westerly extension of the Similkameen,  will, like the latter, prove to be a coun^  tryCof vast mineral resources. ....  At Prineeton mining operations have  been confined chiefly to Copper-mountain. It is there the famoui Sunset  claim is located, arid which is now being- actively developed by a Vigorous  company. The work at the claim is  under the superintendence of the well-  known locator of the property, Mr. JR.  A. Brown, and it is but fair to say that  it-would be a difficult matter to find a  man better qualified for the position  in'every respect. Repofts from this  property are to the effect that the shaft  i��<now entirely in: high ��� gradev bbrnite  ore. . With machinery installed, and  continuous work provided for and kept  going, the Sunset and Copper mountain as a whole should-prove a point of  exceptional activity-next season. :  At Twenty-Mile creek the usual force  of men are at work on the Nickel Plate,  and'although reports from the property  are meagre, owing to the reluctance of  the owners to admit strangers to the  mine, it is nevertheless well understood that the property has already  proved to be of great richness and extent. It is reported that the management at the Nickel Plate has succeeded  in arranging? with the department of  Indian affairs for a mill or smelter site  on the Indian- reservation near the  junction of Twenty-Mile with the  Similkameen.  At Keremeos a large amount of work  has been done on the various properties throughout that- camp. The ore  here is for the most part copper pyrites  and  sulphides,   in diorite and quartz.  On the Opulence, however, native copper occurs in very considerable qant-  ities, assays from this property running up as high as 62 per cent copper  from picked specimens, the average  being about 20 per cent copper, with  very light gold and silver values. On  the Dolphin a very fine ore body has  been opened by a tunnel about 80-feet  in length, the same body being shown  np, both above and below the tunnel  by open cuts. On the- Roadside a shaft  now down 20 feel has disclosed a fine  lot of sulphide ore, and the indications  are that depth will prove the Roadside  a most valuable propeaty. ��  On the Golconda group a crosscut  tunnel is now in about 130 feet and the  indications are that the main lead oh  on this property will soon be cut; Work  is about to be resumed on the Copper  King, which has a shaft already down  some  30 feet.    On  the Elkhorn group  considerable surface work has been  done, and a very' considerable amount  of copper, sulphide andpyrhotite disclosed.  On the Bullion Mountain group vast  bodies of high grade- copper sulphides  has been opened, and the management  there has;commenced- an800-foot crosscut tunnel, which will tap the principal  ore deposit at a depth of about 700 feet,  besides opening at least two other other  leads of less size. This property is regarded as possessing one of. the  greatest mineral showings so far found  in British Columbia,- ()  On the Searchlight a tunnel now in  30 feet is being, driven further, the indications being excellent.  At present the Messrs. Black Bros.  & Woodcroft are building a. new trail  into upper Keremeos valley, and as  soon as it completed supplies . will be  taken in- and they will. commence the  permanent development of their Green  mountain group of claims.'  On the Dividend group a splendid  body of iron carrying copper has just  been crosscut for a distance of ?30 feet  without finding the opposite wall from  the one where work was started. Sinking will now be commenced on this  showing, and it is presumed will be  carried on. permanently.  Taken altogether the mineral showings throughoutKeremeos valley camp,  andespecially in the vicinityof Olalla  creek, where the largest amount of ?de-  velopment work- of one-kind and . another has been done, are in all respects  exceptional, and bythe time the long  tunnel on the Bullion mountain group  has been completed, there seems no  reason to doubt but what Keremeos  can boast of mines second to none in  the northwest. Arrangements-are now  being made to bring. machinery into  the camp, and when installed the work  will go forward in a much more rapid  manner than is possible by hand work  only. Taken altogether the prospects  throughout the.en tire Similkameen are  exceeedingly bright. ��� Grand ' Forks  Miner.  Miners'Union Ball.

After visiting   Rossland   and   other  niining districts he decided that &reenwood offers  the greatest advantages for such an industry.    Mr. Jenckes  interviewed the  Townsite company and also  the council of the Board of Trade.    The Town-  site  company   have offered a site near  the railway  station.    It is understood  that Mr. Jenckes will  ask for a bonus,  but   no   definite   proposition   has  yet  been submitted.
