Powder. E irthenware, Glassware,  Crockery. , ,  The   number of  big strikes  in the  mines of  Boundary Creek district are  easily   accounted'for.,   The   near approach of the railway  and  consequent  opportunities  to  ship  ore has induced  mineo\yners to more active measures hi  the development^ of;.their   properties.  The   result   is, that  big'  ledges which  outcropped   on   the  surface have been  encountered . at  lower levels   with increased, values.   .Then   the railway itself has done unusual work in the matter, of opening up, the bodies.    Mining  history furnishes   no precedent for the  many  strikes  made by the railway  in  this district.    In other mining districts"!  the railways generally: escaped the ore  bodies, but here the main line.and  the  branch  lines . have themselves demonstrated that Boundary Creek is one of  the   richest .mining  districts ���in    the  world.    If  Boundary, Creek had nothing to show but the ore bodies exposed  by the railway on the  Emma, Oro De-  nero,   Snowshoe,    Winnipeg,.  Golden  Crown,  Mother  L/ode,  and   Sunset, it  would still occupy  a prominent place  in the mining world. . The work of the  railway   has  been  eclipsed lay that of.  the   owners and   the Tlast two weeks  have;been record breakers....  Good luck and chattering Italians  are doing wonders for the Winnipeg  and Golden Crown mines. .Lust week  a new ledge was crosscut on the Golden  Crown . aij(Kthis_ week another ledge  was encountered7at the divi<.'.i.ig line  between ..the two mines. -Tiie. ledge  rims: through both propert'. js. The  le:lge is fully 30 feet wide, ,'1'lie, ore is  solid and carries higher cop;i.~r values  than any which has yet Leon taken  froni the Winnipeg. Those v.-ho- saw  the ore state that it is the lai\; rsst and  richest looking surface showi:!.;" of this  character of ore yet uncoyerc'i in the  Boundary creek district. A force of  men are at work stripping  the l^iige..  From present indications, the big  properties of Greenwood, camp are  going to have a keen riyal for first  place in the Monarch. The Monarch  was not considered among -che big properties until recently. It had been  bonded and developed but -the -indications did' not justify the taking up of  the bonds. A short time ago R. E. E.  Brown who had bonded the property  gave it more serious .attention. A  large force of men under W. Hanua  started in opening up the ore body.  Open cuts running . parallel ��� demonstrated that'-the pre body is fully 800  feet \yide., The walls of this enormous  ore body have not yet been discovered.  i Two shafts one 60 and the other 75  feet are in the ore. The values are  high, S40 in copper ;;:id gold being an  average assay. ' Mr. Empey, Mr.  Brown's engineer will install ri plant  nil the Monarch in a short time.  Smith Curtis is meeting with  flattering''success in the notation of the Sunset   property   in   the Similicaniji-u district.    He was  handicapped.-.somewhat. '  by the unusual course pursued   by   ex-  Governor Mclntosli in connectiru with  this   property.    Mr.   Mcintosh   had, a  bond on the Sunset.  For reasons which  are common in connection with mining  deals,   he  did   not meet the payments  on the bond and then spoke disparirigly  :  regarding the  property.    The mineral   "  richness  of   the Sunset is beyond   dispute.  ' Dr., Docks,   the  eminent geolo- .  gist,   who  spent   nearly all summer in  the Similkaineen,thoroughly examined  the   property ��� and   His  report is of the  most;encouragiug discription.  A new ledge on the Sunset,   at  least 7  25 feet wide,' has been uncovered where  excavation; is being  made for  the'big  compressor  plant.     The  ore  had  not  been assayed at  the   time  of  writing,  but from appearances it issure to carry  good copper values. "This   lead is  distinct from that opened iip by 'the  railway and had not been' exposed   at  any    ���  point heretofore.    It adds   a   new-and  large body of ore to the known mineral ��� .,  wealth os the Sunset.  7Jno.' Dunn and 'J. E.

Regular Communication first Thursday in  every month. Sojourning brethren cordially  invited. J.   C.   " * ' "^  C, Scott Gam.owav, W..M.  A   Disjointed : Platform   Adopted  vention.  The Liberal-Conservative convention at New Westminister last week  adopted the following rather rambling  platform :  "The Parliamentary system of the  Mother Land.adopted in the Dominion  of Canada and Province thereof by the  British North America Act, when properly carried out, is opposed to faction,  and- serves to safeguard 'national  interest*.  Political parties with party organization represent the cardinal principles of British Government and tend  to suppress divisions, conspiracies and  confusion in the State.  The distinctive features of the Liberal-Conservative party in Canada have  been> essentially���  1. Loyalty to Queen and faith in  Country.'"  2. Faith in the people.  3. Equal civil and  religious   liberty.  4. Government according to'the principles and precedents under the British  Constitution, including (a) Parliamentary control of public expenditure.  (b)-The responsibility of Government  to Parliament. . (c) The -utmost good  faith enforced as between Government  and the public touching all executive  and. legislative acts to preserve public  credit and the good name of ��� our  country.  5. The improvement and betterment  of the condition of the wage-earning  classes.  6. The encourgement by the state  of the introduction and investment of  capital in the country.  D 7. Active State aid in: 7(a) The  development of transportation facilities by sea and land, (b) The advanc-  ment of agriculture and of the natural  resources of the country, (c) The -improvement,of education.  With such principales the record of  the Liberal-Conservative party in Canada since 1867, among other things, is  notable for the following :  The consolidation and union of the  province and territories of British  North America. " ' .  The maintenance of British connection.  An inter-oceanic and transcontinental  railway.  '   A network of railways over Canada.  An independent national canal system connecting the middle of the Continent with the Atlantic Ocean.  The development and protection of  Canada industrial life.  The establishment of steamship communication with foreign countries.  The establishment of experimental  farms and the introduction of cold  storage.   '  Increased allowances for the  Militia  and the formation of permanent corps.  The establishment of a Government  coast teldgraph. system.  The construction of dry-docks iat  Quebec, Esquimalt and Kingston.  The establishment of. a fishery protection service.  Under these circumstances, at the  first Convention of the Liberal-Conservative Union for British Columbia  the following resolution was unanimously adopted':  'Resolved, that in the opinion of this  Convention it is desirable that the  Liberal-Conservative party should, as  a party, take part in Provincial elections for the purpose of 'ensuring the  Government and Legislation of this  Province ' and Liberal-Conservative  principles, and in order to carry this  into effect "at the next general election  for the Province" that candidates be  invited to stand for such constituencies  as are likely to return Liberal-Conservative members, pledged primarily to  support a Liberal-Conservative Government as distinguished from a  Government composed of Liberals or  partly of Liberal-Conservatives and  partly of Liberals, and that a platform  or statement of principles, applicable  to local politics, be drawn up.'  For the purpose of enforcing the cardinal principles of the Liberal-Conservative party in the local Government of  British Columbia, we have the honor  to recommend the affirmation and approval of the foregoing outline thereof  so far as applicable to local affairs, and  in addition, to pledge this Convention,  and the members of the Liberal-Conservative party who support it, to the  following programme for the Province  of British Columbia.  That true to the maxim of our party,  'by the party, with the party,   but   for  the  country,'   the   interests of  British  Columbia shall be paramount,   regardless of the political complexion  of  the  Federal Cabinet.  It is proposed���  To revise the voters' lists.  To actively aid   in   the construction  of   trails   throughout the   undeveloped  ing of Provincial trunk roads of public  necessity. ���  To provide for the official inspection  of elevators and hoisting gear.  To improve the, administration of  justice and secure the speedy disposition of legal disputes.  To provide an effective system for  the settlement of disputes between  capital and labor.  To adopt the principle of Government ownership of railways, in so far  as the circumstances o!' the Province  will admit, and the adoption of, the  principle that no tenuis .should be  granted to any railway company  which does not give the Government of  of the Province the control of rates  oyer lines bonused, together with the  option of purchase. ,."..'  To assume control and administration of the/fisheries within the boundaries of the Province, o ' '  To actively assist by State aid in the  development of the agricultural resources of the Province.  To make the London Agency of  British Columbia effective in proclaiming the natural wealth of the  Province, and as a place for profitable  investment of capital.  In the. interests of labor the Liberal-  Conservatives party [sympathizes with  and endorses the principle of an eight  hour law.,  To provide .. an improved system of  education.  To recognize and reform the system  of provincial aid to medical men and  hospitals in outlying parts of the province.  ,  To'actively support the.advancement  of the mining.interests of British Columbia.  To aid in the immigration of female  domestic servants. 7  We regret to learn that the government of Canada does not intend to assist in sending and maintaing a volunteer military contingent to South  Africa to co-operate with the forces of.  the mother land and sister colonies in  protecting the rights of British-subjects.  That this union desires to congratulate the Hon. Sir Charles Tupper,Bart.  on his able and vigorous leadership  during the past session and trusts that  he may long be'spared tp^occupy the  high position he now holds, and we  hereby pledge anew our confidence in  him and in the cause that he has so  ably represented, and that, this resolution be telegraphed to him. -.  This convention views, with alarm  the introduction of large1 numbers of  indigent aliens into the Dominion to  compete with our own, people in the  field, of labor, and regrets that the  federal administration has failed to introduce the legislation respecting  Chinese immigration pledged to the  people of this province by the present  prime minister of Canada."  -   Dissolution of Partnership.  Notice is hereb3- given that tlie partnership  hitherto existing between Leutfried Portmann,  Anton Portmann and Frank Hartinger, brewers, Greenwood, trading under the name of  Elkhorn Brewing Co., is this day dissolved by  mutual consent, Frank Hartinger retiring from  the firm, and L. and A. Portmann continuing  the business. Debts due bj- the firm will be  assumed by L. and A. Portmann, and debts  due the firm are to be paid to them.  Witness : LEUTFRIED POREMANN  D. A. Cameron.

On the Brooklyn, the shaft is down  250'feet, and drifting and crosscutting  is being carried on at thelSO and 250-foot  levels. The power used is from a 5-  drill air compressor.  The shaft on the Stemwinder is  down 225 feet and:will be continued to  the 250-foot level.; Drifting- and cross-  cutting is being- carried on from the  level established at a depth of 114 feet.  As soon as the 250-foot level is reached  drifting will be commenced. .-.  Surface work is being prosecuted on  the Idaho, with the object; of detertniri-,  ing- ,the best point at which to commence sinking-.  Work on the Rawhide -has been shut  down until the difficulty in connection  with the eight-hour law is settled, one  way or the other.  L,arge working- plants will be installed on the Brooklyn and Stem-  winder claims as soon as; they can be  got ..in. .oyer . the railroad. The machinery will consist of a 20-drill air  compressor and; four lOO-horse- power  boilers. Suitable buildings will be  erected for ��� the machinery, near the  present pumping- station, below the  Stemwinder shaft-house. The boilers,  engine and air compressor from the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder will be  moved to the Idaho and used for sinking purposes on that claim. The purchase of , a compressor plant for the  Rawhide is contemplated, and will  probably be installed during the winter. Between 30 and 40 men are employed on the company's properties at  the present- time, and Mr. Robins states  that he could . place 50 more men now  if the eight-hour troubles were satisfactorily settled one wa.y or the other.  ���^Phoenix "News.: .-���'.'.'   > "''���:'���';���  mmmwmmmmm  THE TRACKLAYING MACHINE.

At present there are only five of  these machines in use���one each in  Dakota, Arkansas, ��� Idaho (Nelson &  Bedlinton). and Arizona. Under the  most favorable circumstances a machine will lay from two to two and a half  miles of steel :daily, including: the  needed ties, requiring from 90 to 100  steel handlers, tie buckers and spikers.  They easily ^handle 1000 feet per hour.  So far the machines have been made in  Seattle.  The operation of the machine is interesting- to a layman. It consists of  an upright Nagel engine, made in  Erie, Pa., of 16 h-p, and is placed on  the front end of an ordinary flat car,  getting its steam from the locomotive'l  that is pushing the steel and tie cars.  A tram with live rollers ,'runs from the  tie cars to the front, and on the other  side a similar tram brings forward the  steel rails.'. Both sets of live rollers  are controlled with levers by the engineer of the track-layer, who can  stop them at any desired point. Men  on the flat cars tumble the steel aud  ties into their respective trams, the  machinee doing the rest until they are  seized by several g-angs in front, who  places ties and rails, and bolt the. latter together .with lightning speed. The  distribution of the ties in front saves"  little time, if any, as the machine  must run just the same, and the tie  and steel'gangs' vie with each other in  keeping up.

Mathison, superintendent oF  the Dumb and Deaf Institute, Belleville, Ont., visited his son, Dr. Mathison,' in Greenwood a few weeks ago.  Mr. Mathison publishes an interesting  paper called the Canadian Mute. In a  recent number appears the following  account of his trip:   ��� .  "While on the Press association excursion during vacation, Superintendent Mathison enjoyed or rather endured  an unique experience, and one he hopes  never to repeat. On the trip he left  the excursionists at Revelstoke and  branched off to Rossland, then on to  Bossburg, in Washington state, where  he took tlie stage for Greenwood, in  southern British Columbia. The distance is 65 miles, making 130 miles for  the round trip, and though Mr. Mathison has travelled extensively in many  parts of the world, and has endured  may trying experiences, this stage  coach of 130 awful, interminable miles,  crowned them all for wearisom discom  fort.    The stage was constructed with  a view to durability rather than comfort .and convenience, while  the road  was composed alternately of mud and  dust, and ruts and boulders of varying  magnitude, but of unvarying hardness  and solidity.    Much'-'of the journey was  up. and   down   steep, mountains   and  along precipitous  crags with towering  rocks above arid terrible abysses' beneath, and where the swerving of the  stage a few feet -would have sent7it and  all it contained crashing into  the valleys hundreds of feet below.    The only  redeeming feature of the drive was the  sublimity  and; beauty  of the scenery  which in ever changing loveliness  unfolded itself in magnificent panorama.  At Greenwood Mx\  Mathison: spent a  few pleasant days  with his  sonj Dr.'  Robert   Mathisbn,   and  his charming-  wife.   Dr. Mathison  has established a  good practice Fn this progressive town,  which   is  bound   to become in the near  future   an   important  mining  and  industrial center.    It is situated   about  seven   miles   from   the   international  boundary and is beautifully located' in  a valley at the base of  several  mountains, upon whose summits   and slopes  are the mining camps  of  the  district.  It is in the center of what is known as  the Boundary Creek mining district, a j  tract, of country  some   twenty  miles  square,   consisting  of  a series of low  rounded hills, seldom reaching an altitude   of 5,000 feet;   These peaks are  well   timbered,   and   numerous   small  streams afford water for mining purposes.    The  whole district   is rich   in  gold, silver and copper, and  its  possibilities are almost illimitable; arid with  the recent advent of the railway  and  smelter the attention of the whole mining world is directed that way.    Railroad construction is now being pushed  in  every   direction and each camp will  soon   be  supplied   with shipping facilities.    Greenwood,   the   metropolis' of  this district, was founded in 1894,   and  has   now   a   population   of 2,500.    At  least that was the number  of  inhabitants a few weeks ago,, but it is difficult  to  tell  how   many   there may now be,  for the rapidity of' its progress can   be  imagined from the fact that its population   lias  doubled   within the   past six  months. It has two newspapers,several  good hotels, sawmills   and brickyards,  a  large   number of business firms, including   several    wholesale   establishments, and is'adequately supplied with  banks, insurance agencies, professional  service and all   the other necessaries  and  conveniencies  of  municipal   life.  The next time  Mr.   Mathison  goes  to  Greenwood it will be in a Pullman car,  as Chief Engineer Tye  says  the  Canadian Pacific railway will be completed  to that place about the end of October."

Editor  W. J. Hakiiek :.... Manage  SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1899.  THAT HAPPY FAMILY.  The     remarkable     unanimity     of  opirii'nion that dwells in the Tory camp  was again shown in convention in New  Westminister last week.    The enthusiasm   displayed   in   passing-  the  many  resolutions that go to make up the provincial platform of the  British Columbia   Liberal-Conservative   association  augurs well for the future of the  Conservative party.    It is remarkable how  party   discipline  can govern and  control a strong  man.    Only two  months  have passed since another convention  was held  in   Rossland.    It  was  not  a  political convention.    It was,a convention   of'  business   men,    representing  business   institutions���men    gathered  together for the purpose of taking such  steps as would promote the interests of  the  mining-  sections  of  southern and  eastern British Columbia. . There were  present at the  convention strong Conservatives and strong Liberals.    Hon.  T. Mayne Daly was there, Jotih  Roderick  Robertson   was there.    The  one  was  a  leader of Conservatives in  the  ���> good   old   days   when Tory  doctrines  were  at a premium and Tory leaders  were on   top;  the   other endeavors to  lead the Conservatives of Nelson under  the  careful  direction   of  David  Mark  Carley. Those two loyal conservatives  endeavored   to  commit  a non-political  organization to hostile  action in reference to the eight-hour  law.    They  did  not-mince their words.    No men could  holde stronger   views   regarding ' the  eight-hour law.    Hon. T. Mayne Daly  was  also   at  New  Westminister.    He  was one of the active delegates to the  Conservative    convention    which   declared, "That in the' interest of labor,  the Liberal-Conservative party sympathizes with  and endorses the principle  of an eight-hour law.'.' -Published  reports   do not state   that even  a still  small voice was heard in  opposition to  this resolution.    The incident points a  moral  and  adorns a tale.    Politicians  have strong views when away from the  restrictions   of   party   discipline,'   but  ���when  the bugle sounds and the faithful are called, principles are cast aside  and  a  strong bid "is  made  for votes.  Good  old Tories   will  tell  the people  that certain   legislation is ruinous and  calculated to destroy the best interests  of the  country.    The same Tories  as  party men endorse the legislation they  so  vigorously denounced  as business  men.   Party is stronger than principle.  Those who refused  to take an active  part in the agitation, looking to the repeal of the eight-hour law, pursued the  wiser course.    Those who  believed  in  the principle of the law did well to discourage  agitation;  those who did  not  must have  been  taught valuable lessons  by   past  political  events.    They  could    have    learned   that   men. who  wander in the field of politics are finally  on the-side  tliat brings the most votes  to the party to which they belong.    .  Those Conservatives who are opposed to the eight-hour law will curse  the stupidity of their colleagues who  loaded the platform with a resolution endorsing the eight-hour law,  but they will not cut loose from the  party. They will fight shy of the eight-  hour law on the stump and wave the  old flag more vigorously.  systematically arranged, so concise,  views are so clearly and definitely expressed that no elector can have the  slightest difficulty in determining just  where the Conservatives are at.  The initial number of the Phoenix  News is a healthy looking sheet. The  advertising pages tell a story of liberal  patronage on the part of the enterprising merchants of Phoenix. The news  columns are full of interesting infor-  rimtion appertaining to the mines.  The News is sure to take a leading  place among the bright weeklies of the  interior.  BAR    NONE.  What a wonderful advertising agent  Paul Johnson would have made! He  has the knack of saying just the right  things at the right time. ' The interview in the Rossland Miner, copied  elsewhere, is full of interesting information regarding the l big smelter.  Mr. Johnson never fails to say a good  word for Greenwood.   7  C. A. Gregg, of Victoria, was a delegate to the Conservative convention.  Ye gods! What will a man not do  with a normal temperature of 105?  The Conservative platform is so  erratic and illogical that the Midway  delegate must have been appointed a  committee of one;to prepare it.  Act I.���Put in water pipe.

To the Editor: Dear Sir���I respectful^' ask space in your valuable paper  for the following letter:  In regard to the street improvements,  it seems to me that the money voted  for that purpose has been injudiciously  expended; when you take into consideration the fact that upon some streets  money has been wantonly spent,  notably, Greenwood and Copper streets,  from Dundee to Deadwood street,  whilst upon others there has not been  one dollar used for improvements, one  instance is Silver street, from Dundee  to Deadwood, which portion, the street  committee have deliberately overlooked, and which is an almost impassable condition for travel, owing to the  large stones and boulders with which  portions of it are covered, and everything seems to look as if there would  be nothing done this season.      <  Now it seems to me that it is high  time to call a halt on this mode of procedure, whereby a few members of the  street committee use, at their own discretion, all moneys voted by the people for improvements. As a remedy, I  would suggest, that when there is any  more money to be raised for that purpose that the people request that an  estimate of cost of improvements of  each street be embodied in the by-iaw  for that purpose, which would secure  more fully, a measure of fairness to  the ratepayers of the city.

The wonderful variety of subjects  included in the Conservative platform  is its most striking feature. There is  some difficulty in determining what part  is preamble and how many appendixes  are added to the platform proper, but  even with this drawback, one cannot  but admire that wonderful versatility  that endeavors to please everybody,  from the dignified imperialist to the  anti-Chinese agitator. It is interesting  to notice that an effort was made to  blend a resolution on encouraging  female servants with one sending some  of our nrave boys to their death in  South Africa. Just below these two  happy resolutions are two others that  harmonize equally well. One congratulates Sir Charles Tupper, Bart.,  and the other tends to discourage Chinese immigration. The good Conservatives evidently presumed that the  electors would be so lost in admiration  of Sir Charles that they would fail to  discover the inconsistency of British  Columbia Conservatives resoluting  against Chinese. The platform taken  in its entirety, is the most wonderful  production that has yet made its appearance in the political world.

MYERS CREEK LEADING PROPERTY  The Toronto World Man Visits; the Property  and Gives His Impressions���A True Fissure  Vein���Development Work.  Frank D. L,. Smith, mining'e^litor of  the Toronto World, visited the./Review  " recently and described the property as  follows:  "The lead upon which the company  is working, like the other ledges in the  same belt, runs nearly east and west,  cutting the formation and being1  classed by experts as true fissure vein.  The lode is remarkably strong and  well defined deposit, having been  traced on the surface for practically  the entire length of two claims. A  heavy "wash"'., of earth and gravel  covers the lead for the most of the  distance, but by means of several open  cuts'the outcrop of the ledge has been  definitely proven for iully ' 1;000 feet,  where, it runs down over the face of  the hill, upon which the company's two  . claims lie. The most westerly opening  that is to say the one highest up the  side hili,; reveals .the lead where it has  an outcrop 12 feet in width. The other  surface cuts make similar showings.  "The development done on the property consists of; nearly, 500 feet; of'drift,  ing, crosscutting and sinking. The  Review' and Bird locations, lying as  they do upon a steep incline, constitute  a good tunnel proposition, and the  management have taken advantage of  this fact by driving a drift into their  lead from a point half way down the  height, thus attaining a depth on their  ore body of SO to 135 feet. ..This tunnel  has now been driven.400 feet into the  bowels of the hill, and it gives the  owners of the property k good idea of  main characteristics of, their deposit,  which stands up almost perpeudicular  with a dip of perhaps 8 or 10 degrees  from the vertical, and is divided from  the country rock by a perfect footwall,  upon which there is every. where a  clear salvage of from one inch to  several inches, of soft, greasy -talc.  This wall is as clean and 7 wellr defi ned  as a board partition and the ore follows  it uniformly the > entire length of the  tunnel, with one exception, where at a  point 150 -feetfrom the mouth of the  working a dyke of country rock shuts  off the ledge for 12 or 14 feet: This  temporary obstruction once passed,  however, the ore appears agBin-on the  foot wall arid continues with varying  width to the face "of the tunnel, where  the lead shows five feet of clean ore.  "In this tunnel the position of the  hanging wall has not been so clearly  demonstrated as has that of the foot-  wall as just described. It is true that  the south side of the tunnel follows a  talc seam, but it has not been proven  by any means that this salvage forms  the limit of the vein in that direction.  In fact, by .means of a crosscut run at  a point 250 feet' from the mouth of the  tunnel it has been shown that this talc  salvage probably does not mark the  hanging wall. This crosscut has been  driven in a southerly direction-from  the tunnel for a distance of 41 feet, and  it is in vein matter more or less all the  way, with a high, grade'payl streak of  quartz running through it. This proves  that at point,; at least, the ledge, matter measures 46 feet across. No other  crosscuts have been made to show  whether the.ledge possesses a similar  width at other points along the tunnel,  but this further development work will  show.  "The management is now sinking a  double compartment, winze from a station cut out 260 feet in from the mouth  of the tunnel. This winze will be sunk  100 feet, ��� and from the level thus attained another crosscut will be made  and -drifts will be run both ways on  the lead. !It is also tlie company's  policy to continue driving the present  tunnel into the hill and later on to run  in a second tunnel from the base of  the hill,, which will give a maximum  depth of 440 to 500 feet on their deposit.  This second tunnel-will also, of course,  be connected with the winze being  sunk from the main tunnel. .-'  "The Review management now have  on their stock pile something like 1,000  tons'of ore, and the quantity blocked  out in the mine may be ascertained by  calculating upon the basis of a 400-foot  tunnel, giving a vertical depth of 50 to  135 feet on the ledge, the lateral dimensions of which have already been indicated.  "As to the ore from the Review mine,  it may be classed as a regulation  quartz, generally of a dark color, impregnated with carbonate of lime, and  resembling Republic ore in appearance.  It carries iron pyrites and some times  shows free gold, visible to the naked  eye.    The company has not yet decided  what method it will   adopt  in treating  the rock.  ���; "As to the values carried in the ore,  I will not risk any personal statement  but will quote an, expert, who has  tested it. Mr. B. J. Warren, M. E., of  Camp McKinney,' made a thorough  series of tests of the ore from different  parts of the ledge. Samples of the  surface rock found in the outcrop at  the top of the hill, according to Mr.  Warren, ran 80 cents to the ton, and  further assays showed that the values  increased with depth. Two samples of  rock-from -the" face of .'the'tunnel, 135  feet below ground, yielded returns of  $132 and $16.40 respectively to the ton.  The lead where it is 30 inches wide, at  a point 40 feet from the mouth of the  tunnel, gave $86, and 80 feet' from the  face the lead averaged $16, while 100  feet from the face it yielded $13.60. An  eigth sample from the small-quartz  body in the crosscut above mentioned  ran $80 per 2,000 pounds of rpjfk. j|  "The company is contemplating  equipping its property with a stetmi  hoist and other machinery. It may be  mentioned, by the..way, that the Review deposit forms a very easily and  cheaply worked proposition. The  ground is very soft and three or four  feet a, day can' be readily made on it  by hand drill. The fact that the C. P.  R. line to Penticton will run within  three or four miles of the property is a  circumstance in its"favor."  .,; Association Football.  On Saturday afternoon, October 7,  the first football game ever played in  the Boundary Creek district, came off  on the Greenwood ball grounds. There  was a little rain falling,but not enough  to dampen the enthusiasts of the lovers  of 'the game who turned out to the  number of 14.*  Rev. Balderston had the honor of  kick" ing the first "goal. ; Several .pretty  plays occurred during the afternoon  which showed that there is good mater ial in the district. The sides were  as follows':  .

Mr. Paul Johnson of the British  Columbia Copper company, limited,  arrived in the city 'yesterday, from  Greenwood. He came.for the purpose  of interviewing- Mr. Tye at Trail, and  will pass the day there today. In relation to the smelter which his company: is erecting- at Greenwood, he  said :;.'������ ' .    ���"_  "On the start we w.ill erect a  300-ton  copper  smelter,   and  this  will  be  enlarged so that the  daily   capacity  will  be 1,800 tons.     The plant,will be.so.arranged  that there will be room for six  furnaces of 300 tons capacity, each. We  have an ideal smelter site.for   the  reason that the ore as it  comes  from   the  mines can be handled   by  gravitation,  and this, of course, cuts dow expenses.  The ore will first be'dumped into stock  bins, y From these it will "be  taken   to  the  sample   mill,   and   there  with me-1  chanical  samplers   it will be sampled.  From the samples the .portion  of the  ore which is not   necessary  for  sampling  will  be taken  by   gravity to  the  bins and-mixed for the smelting opera-  ations. / From here it will fall into cars  and be taken direct to the furnaces, in-  theshaft on the Buekhorn mine they  have-recently struck almost pure copper pyrite. Most of these mines Jjha'vc  ordered compressors and drills, and as  soon as transportation facilities are  g-iven by the railway,'-they will'commence mining in. earnest and ou a  larger scale thati at present.  "The general character of these  diffierent copper ores when combined,  seem to make a natural flux, as all  carry besides the necessary amount of  silica large quantities of lime spar and  iron ore, so that they will smelt very  easily without any, extra trouble for  the smelter man to figure out the smelting- charges. In factj the ores can be  dumped just as they come from ,the  mines into furnaces without and addition of lime or iron ore for fluxing.  "The C. P. R. has constructed to  every mine of any consequence or importance, spur tracks. ..The railroad  now is so far advanced' that in another  week the rails will be laid into Greenwood. I predict for Greenwood, that if  any town will be able to rival Rossland  it will be Greenwood. " Besides the  natural advantages, with the big mines  all around,  its inhabitants seem to be  & h v-  ���5Sfi��JJg[>  '3  ��� ���;  ��        ��        9  K^^^rK^K^K^9i^c9i'^9[;^rOi^t';-^9i  |UR BREAD is good because we make notHing but good bread*  Guaranteed free  ftom adulteration/  Groceries in few Days;  -:7.:7?M.7  Corner  Greenwood  and Deadwood Streets  *,  Delivery Wagon,  GREENWOOD;  l\rx,ili^^^  IS THE BEST HOTEL IN GREENWOOD.

The matte from big settlers will be  tapped into ladles, and from these it  will be: poured into the converters.  From the eonvertor the blister copper  will be poured 7into .the steel molds,  making ingots . of. copper, which will  then,, be dumped out of the molds and  be placed in railroad cars for shipment  to eastern markets.  '���The excavations for the smelter are  completed, office buildings have been  erected and the men are now starting  on the retaining walls. We are also  going ahead preparing the labratory,  office building, storehouse, etc. We  expect to have the plant ready for operation early in April, and then we will  commence to reduce the ores of that  section. Besides smelting the output  of the MotherJLode, we will reduce that  of the 10 or IS producing mines within  a radius of four or five miles of Greenwood, and perhaps from properties  which are farther away, provided we  can secure their custom. The plant  will be increased to a capacity sufficient to meet the output of ores in that  vicinity, and I expect it will be very  large.  "I have been pretty much all over  the world, and, the ore deposits in the  Boundary Creek section are the largest  that I have seen anywhere. Thegener-  al impression formerly was that the  ore bodies of Boundary were of too low  a grade to be worked at a profit. They  have, however, steadily improved with  depth, and there have been some important high grade finds made recently, and these have demonstrated beyond a peradventure that the ore is of  a high enough grade to be mined and  treated and to leave a large margin of  profit.  "Take the Mother lode, for instance,  the ore has improved considerably going-down, and at the 200-foot level it  will average 6 per cent copper and  some ��14 to S15 gold per ton. In the  main shaft, at a depth of 262 feet, they  have struck a large ore body of chal-  copyrite that goes-30 per cent copper.  The B. C. mine has on the dump several thousand tons of copper ore that  will go from 10 to 18 per cent copper.  The Morrison mine has crosscut an ore  body over 80 feet in width, which runs  high in copper. Mr. E. A. Bielenberg  have discovered very large ore bodies  bornite and chalcopyrite on four of  his claims, which are located in Dead-  wood camp. The Winnipeg mine has  very high grade ore going upwards of  S80 in gold. The ore is pyrrhotite,similar in character to the ore of the Rossland camp. The Golden Crown has,  within the past week, made a strike of  very rich ore. Ross Thompson's company, the King Mining company, has  had, perhaps, bttl m-Iue\- V.\:\n any of  the rest, the railroad having cut  through a ledge which is over 100 feet  wide of very good copper ore. This is  on t'neciaini called the Oro Denoro.   In  that characterizes Rossland, and which  has given this city that distinction  over all other towns in British Columbia, that I predict a very great future  for Greenwood."  '..;i Mr. Jolinson will" leave to day for  Trail for the purpose of interviewing  Mr. Tye in reference to getting in side  tracks to the smelter site at Greenwood.  From there he will on Monday leave  for Greenwood via the Columbia &  Western railway. He is a very busy  man .at present.���Rossland Miner.  LIVE AND LET LIVE.  Biiv Your Bread and Pastry at the  MINING    NOTES.  STffi*BffiEM  TTHE  Crosscutting has been started on the  Oro Denoro, in Summit camp, at the  200-foot level. Good ore has been taken  out of the shaft all the way down.  Crosscutting will be continued until  the walls are reached.  The.ore in the winze of the Review  claim, Myers creek, is gving remarkable values. The winze is down 35  feet, giving- a depth of 175 feet from  the surface. A Chesaw assayer secured  S448.61 in gold from ore in the winze,  while Guess Bros., Greenwood, assayed  the ore and g-ave S298.28 as, the  value.  Chas. Brown and J. Mulligan are doing assessment on the Detroit, a claim  located by them the past summer. A  shaft 10 feet in depth has been sunk on  a good body of copper-gold ore. The  Detroit lies east of the Pheasant in  Greenwood camp, and was first located  in 1895,;and relocated every year since,  but no work was done on it until the  present owners got possession of the  claim. From the work done there are  good prospects of the property turning  out well.  John M. Connick, representing R.( E.  E. Brown syndicate, and Messrs.  Pitcher and Marshall were in Greenwood on Tuesday, on their way to'Spo-  kane. The had just returned from the  West Fork where Mr. Connick had  been working the properties recenty  bonded by his principles from Pitcher  and Marshall. Mr. Connick stated  that the hill upon which the Washington, Idaho and Rambler are located is  the most remarkable he ever saw. The  seven-foot ledg-e runs through seven  claims, and whenever opened up gives  the same high values. An open cut  has been run on the Rambler, near the  Washington, and on the Washington  lead. The following values were received: Gold, $28; silver 3 ounces and  lead 20 per cent. Quarters have beeii  built for the men and everything is in  shape to do a large amount of development work this winter. Sixteen men  will be employed on the different properties. A 9x7 shaft will be sunk on the  Washington. Messrs. Kennedy and  (jorman West have opened tip the same  lead on the Standard and Black  Diamond claims, Robert Wood's property, the Sally, has also the same |  ledg-e. It has been stripped on this j  claim for some distance. I  Guaranteed   free from   adulteration.     Once  you try it you will always buy it.  BRIDE'S CAKE TO ORDER.
