THE    GOLDEN     CROWN.  o The Golden Crown has undoubtedly one of the best���if  not the best���surface showing-s in the camp. The claim  was located about four years ago by Billy Porter, who has  since obtained a crown grant. There are now two shafts  sunk on the claim, one to a depth of S3 feet, the other 31,  besides six openings and a number of smaller prospect  holes. The ore is pyrrhotite and copper pyrites, the assays  showing the proportion in copper to be from eight Lo ten  per cent., and for all values the ore runs from $25 to $30 to  the ton. These are very conservative estimates indeed.  There are evidently two parallel leads on the claim, but no  walls have so far been found on either of them. Our representative asked Mr. Porter what he thought was the size of  i  ���the ledg-e on. which the No. 1 shaft is sunk. " Well," he replied, "it is difficult to say ; but if (laug-hingly) where the  ore shows up in all the cuts belong-s to the same.lead it may  be'two or three hundred feet." The fact is that" without  exaggeration the whole hillside outcrops with mineralized  rock and probably a great deal of work will be required ere  the vein proper is really defined. The G-olden Crown is not  " a poor man's proposition " by any means, but in the  hands, of a strong-company there can be but little doubt  that it will develop into a very larg-e and most valuable  mine. Mr. Porter has received several offers from would-be  purchasers, but he.has fixed the price he is willing to take  at a certain figure���a not exorbitantly hig-h valuation considering- the great showings, as we are in a position to  know���and to that figure he means to stick until he g-ets it.  The Times 'has no hesitation in saying that within eig-hteen  months from the present date the' Golden Crown will be  worth many times the price its owner now asks. Mr. Porter has already spent between three and four thousand dollars in opening- up the property and he is now undecided  whether or not to further develop the claim this winter.  THE     WINNIPEG.  About two hundred feet  east  of  Porter's  cabin  are the  principal working-s on a claim probably  better  known  and  anent which greater interest has  been  manifested  on  the  "outside" than any other property in Boundary.    The Winnipeg- belong-s to comparatively recent history, being located  on the 14th of June of last; year.    It is said that  Mr.  .Mcintosh owed his discovery of the ore to the accident of a  tree,  upturned by the wind, leaving-exposed  a  mass  of  reddish  iron oxides and  partially  decomposed  stilphides.    Sinking  here, at a depth of IS inches the unaltered mono-sulphide of  iron���pyrrhotite-��� was  exposed in a considerable body, the  first assay made g-iving a value  of  $30  in  gold.    When   a  depth of 10 feet had been reached Mr. Mcintosh was offered  $30,000 for the claim on a bond, 10 per cent, to be paid down.  The ore then assayed, according to the results  obtained by  CM. Fassett, an assayer of Spokane, $700 to the ton.    The  offer was refused.    Iyater, in October, Mr. Toole,  an   agent  of the great mining- potentate Marcus Daly, visited the property and made several assays ; samples obtained  from an  averag-e of two feet of the ledg-e  returned  $800  to  the  ton.  Mr. Toole then sampled thev ledge for 15 feet  across,   which  gave an averag-e value of $37 ; in this averag-e the  two feet  of very hig-h grade ore were not included.    Later  on  Capt.  Hall visited the Winnipeg- and made assays of the   ore,   obtaining- $51 from samples taken on the hang-ing  wall.    The  width of the Winnipeg- ledge is fully 15 feet of " clean "ore  which varies from a massive  fine-grained  pyrrhotite  to a  mixture of pyrrhotite, copper pyrites and quartz, the latter  type of ore  usually  having-  a  hig-her g-old  value.    Three  shafts have been sunk on the property : The No. 1 shaft is  down 35 feet, with a cross-cut of 20 feet; No. 2 is down 59  feet; at the 25 foot level is a cross-cut of 25 feet, and at the  50 foot level a cross-cut of 14 feet and a drift of 30 feet.  On a parallel lead another shaft has been sunk to a depth  of 15 feet. Besides this work a number of open cuts and  prospect holes have been made on the claim. The Winnipeg- was crown granted on the 17th of March of this year.  The high price at which the property is held has oftentimes  been the subject of criticism. No doubt the price has on  more than one occasion militated against the consummation  of a sale to very desirable companies. However, in the first  place the price' of a prospect certainly should concern no  one so much as the owner himself, and if his property is ,  valued at $25, and he asks and ultimately gets $50, so much  the better for him ; secondly, there is no reason why the  Winnipeg-, the Golden Crown, and one or, two other prospects in the vicinity should not prove to be fully as valuable properties as the best of the Rossland dividend-paying-  mines in the course of time, and from recent indications the  supposition is not only possible but probable. Granting  this, Mr. Mcintosh's valuation of the Winnipeg is moderation itself.  Both the Boundary Creek towns are more than indirectly  interested in the future welfare of the claims of Wellington  camp. By the opening- of Mr. Wood's road, which is undoubtedly superior to any hig-hway built by the Government in the district, ore can be hauled from the Winnipeg-  and adjacent properties to Greenwood City or any other  spot selected on Boundary creek as a site for a smelter with  little difficulty, nearly the whole of the distance being over  an easy down grade.  HEINZE AND   HIS   PROJECT.  Nelson Tribune  been successful in raising- funds  for the  extension  When, Mr. Heinze was asked if  he  had  of  the  narrow g-auge road into the Boundary camp, he said that he  was partially so, but that everything- now rested with the  willing-riess of both the provincial and federal g-overnments  to co-operate.  This statement by Heinze-will no doubt sound strang-e to  the provincial government. There has been an utter absence  of candor on the part of P. A. Heinze throughout his dealing's with the provincial g-overnment with respect to the  Columbia & Western railroad. He misled the g-overnment  as to his intentions in the first place. The railway company's  charter was secured upon  the  distinct   understanding  that  the company was not seeking any land grant or other subsidy. When the act incorporating the company was put  through, the land subsidy act was brought down by the  government and forced through the house despite the protests of members that they had been utterly misled. When  the debate upon this land subsidy bill was in progress, it  was openly stated in the house that the change of heart on  the part of some of the representatives with respect  to the Columbia & Western railwa)r bill, was distinctly  traceable to a. dinner given them in the Driard hotel by  Heinze."  Much contained in the foreg-oing is undoubtedly true, but  it is more charitable to believe that the land subsidy was  granted that Mr. Heinze mig-ht have a better, chance to  float his bonds on the London ���.market, backed���-as the subsidy showed���by the provincial government. As The  Tribune sugg-ests, it is to be hoped that the Government  will insist on the due performance of the Columbia & Western Company's oblig-ations with reg-ard to the deposit of  $50,000 as damages in the event of the line not. being- built  from Trail to Penticton within four years from the passag-e  of the Act. ������''.-  " m  m  m THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES,  DISTRICT NEWS.  The stores of J. McNicol and Armstrong & Co. at Anaconda are being  " rustic-ed " in preparation for cold  weather. ���  The Spokane Fruit Fair was opened  on Tuesday by Mr. John A. Finch, the  well-known mine owner, who delivered  a very felicitous address of welcome to  the visitors.  Mr. J. McNicol left for Spokane on  Wednesday, and Messrs. Jv Franks and  Fisher on Thursday. They will be  among the visitors from Boundary to  the Fruit Fair. ��� ..���'.:;'   ;  Charlie Rendell has built a comfortable cabin on his pre-emption at Pass  creek. It is not' unlikely that this pro--  ��>erty will one day be, the site of a town  of importance. -  a ]  Mr. Keffer has received instructions  to proceed no furtner with the work on  the Copper for the meantime, until the  American Exploration Company's expert arrives from New York and sub-  .   mits his report on the property.  Messrs. J. Lind, T. Humphreys, J.  . Wilbur and E. Keightley left for, Vernon this week in connection with the  forgery case which is to come up at the  assizes on the 12th inst. Mr. McColl,  Q.C., assisted by Mr. A. S. Black, of  Greenwood, has been retained for the  defence. ,     v ��  Mr. Randolph Stuart received a cablegram from EnglandI on Sunday informing him of the death of his mother.  The deceased lady had for some time  prior to the sad event been in feeeble  health. Mr. Stuart left on Sunday's  stasre en route for England., He has  the sympathy ofthe community: in his  bereavement.  Mr. Wilson, one of the provincial  school inspectors, made an official visit  to Boundary this week. This is; the  first occasion that a. school inspector  has visited the district. Mr. Wilson  was a good deal surprised with the  signs of civilization wr;i;h confronted  him and it is quite within the bounds  of possibilities that had he been aware  that hotel accommodation was to be  had���and fair accommodation at that  ���the school children might long ere  this have enjoyed the privilege of  meeting, with this important personage. Mr. Wilson was shown over the  hospital and viewed the other " lions "  of Greenwood before leaving-.  Messrs. Gilette, Davis and Frank,  directors of the Spokane & Everett  Mining Company, were in the camp  last week. The company owns the  Rambler on Pass creek, which is  stocked for $1,000,000. Under Mr.  Frank's supervision work is now proceeding on the property, three men being employed at the present time. It  is the intention, however, to work two  or more shifts shortly. Development  on.the Rambler will probably be continued steadily. A shaft has been  started and is now down 10 feet. Good  ore has already been struck. There is  an immense capping of iron which has  been traced for 400 feet on the claim,  though this, of course, counts for little  as a determination of the permanence  or value of the ledge. Assays of rock  taken from the crbppings ran as follows :���Gold, $6.25; silver, $5.25; copper,  11 and 1-10 per cent.  Have   you    seen   our  All wool Pants?

[Spokane   Chronicle.]  ; Alex. Dunphy, an old Coeur d'Alene  miner who has spent most of this year  in the Boundary Creek district and on  the Reservation, is in town and speaks  in very g-lowing- terms of the future of  -that country.    Mr. Dunphjr says   that  as soon as they have transportation in  that district it will rival Rossland. and  the   Slocan.    All  the   mining-  experts  who have been in there have been favorably impressed and more or less capital   has  been  coming-   in  during-  the  year.   -Kvery thing- is   somewhat  quiet  there at present, as it must  be  during-  winter in any camp that- is practically  new%nd has not transportation.   Some  of the claims are looking- very fine and  several  will  have  crews  working-  all  winter.'    White's camp is showing-   up  well.    The Washington claim is in 125  feet, with the ore  looking-  very  g-ood.  Reports from E^tireka camp, are  favorable, and ..consider able-  work   will  be  done there' during- the cold weather.  MINING NOTES.  Assays from the Rossland, a claim  located last week ten miles up Boundary creek, give $4.00 in gold from the  7' Capping".; -���''    '7'.: ' '��� .' :'���;���''''  Specimen pieces of good looking  rose quartz, carrying copper pyrites  and galena, Were sent down the early  . part of this week from two recently  located claims on Lost creek,.the Hamilton and Bel videre.  Assays of rock from the new strike  on the Lake claim, Skylark camp, have  receh'tly been made by Mr. Hodgson,  of the Boundary Creek ��� Engineering &  Assaying Company, with satisfactory  results, the ore running 172 ozs. in silver and $6.50- in gold to the ton.  Mr. J. Fisher came down from the  Barrow, Skylark camp (to#which allusion was made last week), on Sunday,  bringing with him several specimens  of quartz containing free gold of visible size. Three openings have been  made on the claim and the ledge is  showing up well.  M. T. Robison came down from Kim-  berley camp last Saturday, bringing  with him some samples of rock from  the Ballarat, An open cut three feet  deep shows up a solid body of pyrrho-  tite ore. Mr. Robison ^ returned ��� the  same day and intends to put in several  weeks longer working on the property.  Among the best finds of the year the  Carmie, located by Jim Dale up the  west fork of Kettle, river, certainly is  entitled to be included. rThe assessment work has been recently completed  on this claim, the result of development thus far being eminently satisfactory. A well-defined ledge, five  feet wide, has been uncovered, the ore  being milling quartz with copper pyrites, galena and zinc blende,���the latter, however, not .in a proportion sufficient to increase to any extent the  probable cost of treatment.

[Special Correspondence.]  Although the world at large hears  little about Camp McKinney, it is by  no means asleep,���the constant and  steady hum of the stamp mill and machinery still continues. The. well  known property which has kept the  mill steadily pounding since its erection, at the present time looks better  than ever, showing a fine body of ore  at the lowest depth.  Mr. Julius Brethottr, who has put in  the ...''summer: working upon some property two miles north of the camp, has  left for Victoria, carrying with him  some fine looking specimens.  Mr. C. B. Barth, who represents a  Victoria syndicate, has come to devel-  ope the Victoria claim, situate three  miles south of this camp, and, has now  15 men busily engaged in building  roads and cabins and otherwise preparing for a steady winter's work. Mr.  Barth, who is as amiable and obliging  a neighbor as he is an enterprising ah  energetic business man, has the good  wishes of , all, and it is hoped that  others of his stamp will commence  operations in the near future.  Jimmie Iyyneh,< nimrod par excellence, is working on ; the, Maple I^eaf,  running in a drift to tap the ledge.  Mr. John. Moran  has  been  laid "up  with a  severe   attack  of  rheumatism,  but his many friends hope to  see  him,  around again shortly.  MINING NOTES.  After drifting for 25 feet at a depth  of 133, cross-cutting was started this  week on the No. 7.  John Christie has discovered, under  iron capping, a body of pyrrhotite ore  five feet in width between walls. He is  now sinking on the ledge and is already  down about seven feet. ;  Rory Mclveod, one of the owners of  the Bank of England, Greenwood  camp, intends to work on the property.  Sonie little while ago  a  second  ledge  was found, from  which  promising ore  has been taken.  Messrs. Johnnie Stevens and Henry  White went out on Thursday's stage to  Spokane, in connection with the deal  that it appears is likely to be successfully carried through on the transfer  of the City of Paris and Lincoln.  On Thursday the crosscut on the  Mother lode had been run some twenty-  five feet; the ore body it is expected  will be reached at about thirty-five.  The rock through which the men are  now drilling is a crystalized lime extremely close-grained and hard, and  progress is necessarily slow.  F. A. "Williamson came down from  Deadwbod camp on Wednesday, and  left on the following day for Spokane.  Mr. Williamson is interested in several  properties in the camp, among others  the three properties on which he has  been working. Two of these the Standard and Mother's Boy���named after  two rich mines in Idaho���are northerly  extensions of the Mother Ivode. A  ledge apparently has been found on the  Standard of arsenical iron, while on  the Mother's Boy at a depth of 11 feet  oxide of copper and copper pyrites has  been uncovered in a well defined formation. This ore is similar to that of  the Mother I^ode. On the third claim,  the Plat, on the other side of Copper  creek, a shaft  has  been  sunk  for  12  feet. After going through an iron  capping indications of copper have  lately appeared. Mr. Williamson has  two brothers in Rossland who were the  principal and fortunate owners in  Crown Point properties, recently sold  for $360,000.  A tunnel is to be driven on the Big  Four for 100 feet on the vein, giving  in this way a depth of from 80 to 100  feet. The work will be commenced, at  once. ..  Jim Dale went up'to the Carmi on  Tuesday, and will build a cabin on the  claim with the intention of remaining  to develop . the property during the  winter months.  ������������'' G. A. Guess and Spencer Bennerman  left, this week on a prospecting trip up  Kettle river, intending to go as far as  possible towards the Mission.

The Times is in receipt of copies of  a pamphlet descriptive of Boundary  Creek mining- district "which Mr. Haas  has caused to be printed for distribution among- visitors to the Spokane  Fair. His action in the matter, is  hig-hly commendable.  Mr. William  James,  more popularly known  Barber,'' moved this week into his new  premises next door  to  the  post-office.  . From the fact that the two rival barbers are now displaying- signs on the  same street, we augur interesting developments as being within the probabilities. '.,.'"' ,:  0 The last issue of the Butte Mining  World���the most influential and widely  read mining- journal in the western  States���-publishes a column article on  Kimberley camp (north of Greenwood),  ..' copied from this paper.

Here is one^iiiore instance : A- small box weighing at best  four pounds,,was billed 80 cents from  Vernon to Penticton, perhaps 70 miles",  or a five hours' run by steamer. The  same packag-e was carried by Snodgrass' stage to Greenwood, 85 miles of  the hardest road in the country, for two  '"'��� bitSV; ���:"/. n   .'.������ '. ,;���.;' ���'..;.���"'    ��� :]'/',:  The proprietors of both  the Windsor  .hotel and^of trie Greenwood  City  Mercantile Co.   set  an   excellent .example  this week in the way  of  grading-  and  -otherwise improying- the streets by the  removal of boulders, etc., in   the vicinity of their respective places  of  business.    The merchants on   Government  street immediately followed  suit  with  undeniably  beneficial effect.    Thoug-h  the -huge boulders withwhich the streets  of   Greenwood    were   decorated   were  doubtless   both   ornamental  as  monuments testifying- to the  rapid  growth  of the place,   and   useful   as   affording-  seats for visiting mining-  experts, still  tlie town will probably get oh very well  without them, (the  rocks  possibly, not  the experts, are referred to).  ���Rumors of an amalgamation  of the  stage   interests   between    Greenwood  and Grand Forks have been prevalent  for some   time.    We   are  now   able   to  give   authenticity . to   the   rumor,   the  agreement between Mr. Snodg-rass and  Manley.���&. Averill   being-  approved  by  Inspector Fletcher and now only awaiting-signature.    Greenwood will be the  terminus of Mr.   Snodgrass'   run,   and  here he  will  make  his  headquarters,  putting up  stables,   barns,   etc.,   near  the lower bridg-e.    The schedule of  arrival and departure will remain  as  at  present, except that  about  two  hours  will be saved each wa3r, the extra teams  accelerating  the  speed.

From Greenwood  to Grand Forks   the   business   will  be  handled by Manly  &  Averill,   and as  their coach already   makes   the  round  trip daily no change is needed.  being  Snodgrass &  ARMSTRONG,    B.C.  iV��-'    J3f*     ^V4-  it?      ?i$      ?rF  Patronize home industry and the only co-operative Flour Mill in the  ; Province! by using our  XXX  Our Mill  is  fitted throughout with  the latest improved machinery  and  is  in  M4 charg-e of a fhoroughlj'-experienced miller.  ;   Ask  for  our  Flour  and  keep  the  mone3'   in  the  district.

HARBER ���  ���     EDITOR  ���MANAGER  Subscription, S2.00 per Year, in  Advance.  SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 18%:  EDITORIAL NOTBS,  The necessity for more adequate  warehouse acGonimodation at Pentic-  ton is beconiijiig-vurg-ent, and several  instances have occurred of late where  g-oods cdnsig-ned to local store-keepers  have been damag-ed by being- left for  perhaps several days on the wharf at  Penticton exposed : to . the weather  without being- protected in any way.  The freight rates charg-ed by the C.P.R.  are sufficiently exorbitant that they  should be able to afford to do for customers what is expected of every transportation company. A. case occurred  only last week where a Greenwood firm  ordered a larg-e shipment of goods from  Vancouver to be sent by way of Marcus, a ;f ormer consignment having- been  damag-ed by exposure to rain and sun  on the Penticton wharf. Not only is  the insufficient accommodation a cause  of loss and annoyance to its patrons,  but is also the cause of direct loss of  revenue to the railroad itself.  There can : be  no  denying-  that  the  political situation in the United States  at the present time is very critical and  whatever the issue of the  presidential  election next month may be  it  is   certain that business generally, not  only  in the United States but' also   in   Canada, will be seriously affected.    So far,  however,    as   the   mining-  industry   of  British   Columbia   is   concerned,   it is  difficult to forsee exactly in what  way  the success or failure of  Mr.   Bryan's  candidature will influence development  and prosperity.    Granting that the bi-  metallists carry the day,   it  is   certain  that American securities���in which we  fear   British   Columbia  securities will  also   be   included���will    depreciate   in  value immediately on the L/ondon market; and that,   at   any  rate   until   the  financial   situation   is   less   agitated,  British   capital���and   for   that  matter  much   American   capital���will   be  religiously invested in good old-fashioned  securities, such  as   consols   and   3  per  cent.'s, in preference   to  being  risked  in mining ventures, however promising  their nature.    These  conclusions   may  be altogether erroneous, but it  is  unquestionably true that  a  great  financial crisis is impending in which Canada is more or  less  involved.    On the  other hand, if McKinley   is  elected to  the presidency, there will be a state of  affairs not dissimilar to those preceding  the civil war,���:a case of the north and  east against the south and west, and  what the result, may be the future  alone will decide.  With a regularity that  is  becoming  a trifle monotonous an anti-Mongolian  crusade is annually   agitated  throughout the   Province.    It  niust,   however,  be admitted that owing to the  decided  increase  of late   of Chinese and    Japanese immigrants to British Columbia,  the question t/egins to   assume a more  alarming complexion,   both   from   the  ethical and economical points of  view,  locally, Boundary Greek has  been, so  far comparatively free from   this   undesirable class of cheap (?),laborers; how  long such a blissful state  of   affairs is  likely to exist is another question.   We'  have already had an instance this year  of Chinamen being employed  to   work  as miners on  a  property   under  bond.  What  guarantee,' therefore,   have  we  for the future that employers who have  nothing to consider  beyond   the  rapid  accumulation of wealth, wiil not follow  the same pernicious example as   far as  practicable?

Coolg-ardie Mining- Company, general  office, Spokane, Wash. Mines, Copper  Camp, Boundary, B. C.  " The Coolg-ardie mine is located in  Copper camp, British Columbia, and  was acquired by the preseut company  by purchase.  " The principal work done has been  doneon what is called the Mother Iyode.  The mine is opened up with a shaft 50  feet deep, and numerous open cuts  along- the line of the ledg-e or reef.  ".We have now over 1,000 tons of ore  on the dump ready for treatment that  gives an ayerag-e sample assay of over  $27 per ton in g-old, silver and copper.  The averag-e width of the vein is 25  feet;:  " The company has now let a contract  to run a tunnel in on the vein, which  will give us a depth of from apex of  vein of about six hundred feet. The  g-eneral character of the ore is pyritic  copper and iron, carrying- g*old and  7 silver; and there is one thing- that can  be said in reg-ard to this particular-  character of ore, wherever they have  , found it they have always found permanent mines.  " At the last session of the British  Columbia parliament there was achar-o  ter granted to a company to build a  railroad from Rossland to Penticton  where it will connect with the Canadian  Pacific railroad. It must be built inside of two yesrs, and they are now  working' on it.  " At a meeting- of shareholders of the  company, there were 200,000 shares of  stock donated to the company to be  sold tc raise funds1 for development and  the purchase' of machinery.  "Treasury shares, fully paid up and  non-assessable, par value one dollar,  are offered at twenty cents per share.  Application for shares should be made  to Doneen & Fair, Selling- Ag-ents,  Temple Building-, Montreal,, who will  issue scrip and have same registered in  the company's books. James L/. Mc-  Cuivi,OCH, Vice-President."  From the result of enquiry instituted  by The Times with reg-ard to the fore-  g-oing-it is   ascertained   that   while   a  claim named the Coolg-ardie does  exist  in Copper camp, there is  a reasonable  doubt as to its validity, a prior location  having- been made on the same ground.  So far as can. be  learnt  no  work  has  been done at any time on the property;  but the information given in the  prospectus could with more or less accuracy  be applied to describe the  Big-  Copper  and   the   development   thereon   done.  Both the Copper and Mother  Ivode,   to  which allusion is made, are under bond  to   the   American   Exploration   Company.    The Mother Lode is situated in  Dead wood  camp,  at  least  four  miles  distant from the  so-called  Coolg-ardie  claim.    The idea sug-g-ested by the  allusion in the prospectus to the  Mother  Ivode is that the promoters of the  company have cleverly taken advantag-e of  a   coincident   similarity  between   the  name of   a   well-known   claim   and   a  technical mining- expression  to  perpetrate a fraud upon  the  public.    Thus,  in the sentence   "The  principal  work  has been done on  the  Mother  L<ode,"  mother lode may be used in .the sense  of " main lead;" but a careful investor  at Montreal writing to (say) the Mining- Recorder here for information, and  asking- about the Mother Xode would  very probably receive an answer .that  would set any doubts he mig-ht have  entertained of the bona-flde nature of  investment at rest. This may or may  not be a correct supposition, but it is  palpable notwithstanding, that on the  faceof it, the prospectus from beginning- to end is made up of a tissue of  falsehoods, and we have, therefore, no  hesitation instating-that in our opinion  the Coolg-ardie mining" scheme is a  "wild-cat" of a very flag-rant type.  On Monday, Sept. 28th, the first  school on Anarchist mountain 7was  opened by Miss Alice Blake, of Victoria. The school-house hot being-finished  the trustees rented a room temporarily  from, Mr. Chas. Coss. Mr. Win. Lawless, of Greenwood, is to have the new  school building- ready hy 'November  1st. Twenty-one children were enrolled the first day. There are eigiit  more to come, and the trustees are determined that every child of school ag-e  must attend.  Mr.  Kelson  Bennett,   a  well-known  figure both in mining- and railroad circles on the other side  of   the  line,   accompanied by a  Mr.   Wallace,   of  the  Kootenuy-Iyondon   Mining-   Company,  owners of  the Washing-ton  and  Lone  Star   mines   south  of   White's  camp,  among other promising- properties, visited Boundary last week.   Mr. Bennett  has sent ag-ents to report on the  prospects of this district on  several former  t occasions, and their opinions being in  every instance most complimentary to  the   district  Mr.   Bennett   decided  to  verify by a personal visit the information he had received.    Speaking- of the  pre-eminently   important  question   (to  the people of Boundary) of transportation, Mr. Bennett remarked that in his  judg-ment���-speaking as. a railroad contractor of much experience���the engineering-difficulties in  the  way  of  constructing- a road  to  enter  the  district  were    comparatively    inconsiderable;  but, he added, " to <niy  mind  the  real  obstacle is to convince   capitalists that  such a road would pay."    He.fe.lt positive that within two years the desideratum would be supplied.    In the meantime   Mr.   Bennett  sug-g-ests  that  the  next best thing- for Boundary would be  the erection of a local customs  smelter  and  hinted  that possibly  he  himself  mig-ht be induced to assist in  securing:  the necessary capital for  such ��� a  purpose.   Thither Mr. Bennett or Mr. Wallace are expected to return to the camp  in a fortnigiit's time.

C. Brown went up to Deadwood  camp on Wednesday to work on the  Kootenai. __/'������'  During- the past week Mr. F. Gr.  Schwenitz has visited several of the  larg-er properties in the camp., He  thinks that the Knob Hill has a big-g-er  showing- than any prospect he has yet  seen. '.���''{���. ��� '������ .������"' - "'  Development work is being- pushed  on the San Bernard, Providence camp,  and the appearance of the ledg-e is improving-. Some very fine ore has been  taken out.  The shaft oh the No. 7 is now down  some .150 feet and the intention is to  commence drifting-. A boarding-house  is being- erected on the property and a  new whim has been ordered to replace  the home-manufactured substitute' that  up to the present has been in use.  Articles of incorporation have been  filed for the, Keoug-h Gold & Copper  . Mining- Company. The capital stock  is 200,000 shares at a par value of $1 ,  per share. The properties owned by  the company are the R Bell, Aspen, De ,  L/ahiar, and Reming-ton mining-claims.  A strike was -'made last week on the  Snowshoe which may lead to important results, a body of rich-looking- ore  from which g-old could be easily panned,  being-discovered on the lower ledg-e,  at the Curlew end of the claim. A hole  five feet deep was sunk on the spot,  and at'this'depth"the appearance of the  ore is very fine. v  A number of g-ood prospects have  been located this summer up the Kast  Fork, not more than 25 miles from  transportation via the Arrow lakes.  Assays from a ledg-e of about six feet  of clean free-milling quartz found in  that neighborhood were recently made  by Mr. St. Georg-e, of Carson, the results averaging- $34 in gold to the ton.  A g-ood deal more work than ordinarily answers the purpose of annual  assessment has been done on the Phoenix, arid as a result there is a showing-,  on the claim worth seeing-. After last  season's work there was nothing- beyond a big-, capping- to indicate the  ledg-e. Within the last few days some  very fair copper ore has been found  and a lead, presumably the Old Ironsides, nine feet across, uncovered;  The Greenwood Gold, Silver and  Copper Mining- Co., stocked for $750,000,  has c been incorporated to develop the  Texas claim in Providence camp, with  J. Iy. Wiseman, manag-er, C. Van Ness,  treasurer and W.T. Sanders, secretarj'.  The Texas joins the Providence on the  north. About $500 has been expended  up to the present time in development ;  The Times is informed, however, that  it is the intention of the compan}r to  commence operations immediately, and  work will doubtless be continued during  the winter .months. Mr. Wiseman  sent out a sample of rock weighting- 72  pounds to Spokane this week. From  ��� what can be.learnt there is a big- showing- on the claim.  Pierre Susap and Quista, two Indians belonging- to the Colville reservation, cliarg-ed with the murder of a fellow-tribesman (Andrew) on the fourth  of last July, near Nelson, were tried  last week in the U.S. district court at  Spokane. After an absence of 24 hours  the jury acquitted Quista, but were  unable to agree as to the giiilt of Susap.  ������  *  ����*  ���  TUSSINE  tussine;  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE,  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  TUSSINE  T  e  A  A  a  T  0  A  a  A  a  T  ���  A  9  T ���  ' T .
