Vol L  GREENWOOD CITY, B.C., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1896.  No. 12.  COMING   TO   THE   FRONT.  Camp McKinney Now Attracting Attention���A Season of.  Prosperity will Shortly Dawn   upon   this   Long-  Enduring  Mining   Camp���Description  of  Some  of   the   Chief   Claims.  Camp McKinney is situated on the eastern slope of the  range of mountains dividing the Kettle river and Okanagan  valleys, at an elevation of some 4,500-feet above sea level,  and forms one of the series of mining camps extending  from the Rockies to the Cascades ; in that mineral belt  which so closely follows the 49th parallel, comprising the  mining camps of East Kootenay, Trail, - Rossland, Grand  Forks, Boundary Creek, Fairview and the Similkameen  district.  In the spring of '87  Messrs.   Rice,   McKinney,   Burnham  and I^efevre left Spokane to prospect for quartz   in   British  Columbia, choosing Rock creek as their field  of  operation.  Following up that creek some 12  miles,   they  came  to  the  Victoria claim, which had been located in-1884 ; the   indications for mineral being encouraging, they pushed  on  some  2,000 feet higher up the mountain  and  camped   on  what is  now the famous Cariboo claim.    At that season of the year  the mountains were still covered with   the  winter's   snows,  making prospecting almost  impossible  except   upon  some  exposed "ridges from which the wind had  swept  the  snow,  andfit was upon such a place the croppings  of  the  Cariboo  were discovered, close "to  where  the  camp  fire  had  been  built.    A very little work soon revealed the richness of  the  vein, and Messrs. Rice and McKinney located  the  Cariboo  while Messrs. Burnham and L/efevre staked  the  adjoining  claim, the Amelia, on the 3rd of .'May, 1887.    Though there  were comparatively few prospectors in the  country   at  the  time, the news of the new strike  quickly  spread  and  soon  some thirty or forty prospectors  were  camped  around the  lucky discoverers ;   claims w^ere   staked   in   all  directions,  everyone believing- he had a bonanza, each new-comer having the privilege of a look at Fred. Rice's cabinet, which he  kept in a cigar box, and a sight  of  those   specimens,   with  the quartz literally hanging to  the  g-old,   would  make  the  most skeptical believe there was nothing- like being a miner  and no place like Camp McKinney���which, by the/way, was  so named in honor of Al. McKinney.    In spite of  the  difficulties of transportation and consequent high prices of provisions, prospecting and development work was carried on  vigorously during 1887, not only the Cariboo   and  Amelia,  but several of the adjoining and outlying  claims   showing  up remarkably rich ; but by '88 many of the  claim  owners  had to face the hard problem which   has  been   and  always  will be, to the majority  of  prospectors,   a  difficult  one  to  solve, viz., the want of capital.    Quartz mining in B.C. was  at that time at low water mark ; it was next  to  impossible  to induce capital to invest; the camp was practically  inaccessible, all supplies being packed in over a mountain trail,  and a mail service once a month. Under such circumstances  it is not surprising- that the  majority   of  the   miners  were  compelled to abandon their properties, however unwillingly,  and seek more favored localities.  Mr. James Monaghan, of Spokane, and associates, having  purchased the Cariboo and Amelia from the original owners, determined to put up a mill on the property and thoroughly test it, and on April 24th, 1894, a ten-stamp mill  which had been hauled in under great difficulties, commenced running���and is still running���on the Cariboo  claim, only having- stopped for the necessarj^ clean-ups,  etc., making it the record mill of the Province; and what  is still better, has paid from the first  drop  of  the  stamps.  The property is now owned by the Cariboo M. & M. Co., of  which Mr. J. Monaghan is president and Mr. G. B. Mc-  Auley secretary-treasurer, and is one of the best���if not the  best���free-gold producing mine in B.C. The 140-foot level  is now being worked, but preparations have been made to  work the 200-foot level where the vein in places is 11 feet  wide and the sulphuret ore appears to be richer. The total  output of the mine foots up close upon a quarter of a miliion  dollars.  The Eureka, better known as the  Douglas mine, situated  about 800 yards west of the -Cariboo,   was  located  by  Mr.  John Douglas in 1887,.has a- shaft   153  feet  in  depth,   and  cross-cuts 100 feet and 75 feet, displaying a big body of ore.  Mr. Douglas, who was connected with a  New  York  syndicate in the enterprise, expended a very large sum of money  on the property, under the most adverse circumstances.   As  an instance: He had to make several miles of road to bring  in proper  hoisting  machinery ; and  though  for  over  two  years he stuck pluckily to. the development of his  property,  it is not surprising that he should have accepted the  advice  of one of his partners, " that life was  too  short  to  operate  in such a county."    Between the Eureka and  the  Cariboo  are situated the Maple I^eaf, owned by  Mr.   J.   lyynch,   on  which is a 45-foot shaft, and the Alice and  Emma  (consolidated), on<which is a 63-foot  shaft.   The  character  of  the  ore on these claims is similar to the Cariboo  but  of  a  less  degree" of richness.    Some 300 yards south-west of the Cariboo is the Sailor, formerly known as the  Prince  of  Wales.  This claim has been recently bonded to Toronto  and  Vancouver parties.    It has a very strong vein  which  has  been  opened up about 500 feet, assays from the shaft giving from  $8.00 to $58'in gold.    A little" west of the  Eureka is the Dol-  jphin, on which is a tunnel 50 feet and  two  shafts,   the  ore  going from $13 to $40 in  gold.    Still   further  west,   in  the  granite, is the old Bouncer claim, now known as the  Anarchist, owned by Mr. Sidley ; a 60-foot shaft has been  sunk,  showing wonderfully clear walls ; the vein is nearly six feet  wide at the bottom of the shaft and assays from $9  to $13.  Immediately to the south of the Cariboo is the  Minnehaha,  with a 40-foot shaft, showing some very good ore:    Joining  the Amelia on the east is  one  of  the  early  locations,   the  Okanagan, and half-a-mile still further in  the  same direction is another, the Fontenoy, formerly the Carbonate, situated in the lime belt ; an 80-foot shaft on this claim gives a  splendid showing of mineral.  Mention should be made of the north-west portion of the  camp. Three miles in that direction from the Cariboo are  situated the Highland Chief, Hidden Treasure, G. M. B.,  Rosebud, Mayflower, Alma, the old L,ost Mine and several  other properties. This section offers the best field for the  prospector, the mineral area being very extensive and surface showings indicating large bodies of ore.  About 3*4 miles east of the Cariboo and 2,000 feet lower  down, is situated the old Victoria mine, the first location  made in the district having- been recorded in '84. The character of the country rock is somewhat different, being- a  talcose schist, while the upper camp is slate. The Victoria  was always known to contain very rich ore, two test samples of 1,000 lbs. and 1,200 lbs. being some few years ag-p  sent to Chicago and assaying $187 and $168 to the ton, and  picked specimens going as high as $2,700 to the ton. The  property has been recently acquired by Victoria parties and  under the superintendence of Mr. Bash work is being pushed  ahead. Already two tuunels have been started, one being  in some 50 feet, so that by the coming- spring the property  should be thoroughly exploited. Adjoining the Victoria is  the Old England, on the same vein ; in fact there are three  veins running through this claim ; on  the  centre  or  main THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  vein a 75-foot  incline  shaft  has  been  sunk and the big-ore body tapped, while  a'90-foot, tunnel has been run to cut the  west vein.    It is  the  intention  of  the  owners this winter to run   a .tunnel in  the centre vein with a view to   stdping-  ���   the ore.    The Homestake is  an  extension   of the  Old  Eng'lantd,   the   same  veins being- traced through the  claim,  - the centre one being tapped by   a  tunnel. In addition to the foregoing, there  are a number of locations in the vicinity, such as the Ophir;  Snowden, California, Queen, Peerless, etc.,   showing  the presence of large bodies of .���������mineral.'  During the present season considerable prospecting has been done between  the two forks of Rock creek, some four  or five miles south-east  of  Camp  McKinney, ' with   most   encouraging- results, Messrs. Copeland  and  Gwatkin  having- struck, a splendid body  of   copper ore running, from $25 oo $55 in copper,   silver   and   gold.      Their   shaft,  which at present is about  20 feet deep,  is in solid mineral and it is their intention to put it down 100 feet this winter.  They have named their claims the  Ee  Roi and War  Eagle.    As  may  be  assumed, this discovery led to  the  location of a number of claims in the vicinity.    Another strike  was  made   about  four miles north-east of McKinney last  summer by Mr. Brethour, representing  Victoria people, though sufficient work  has not  yet  been  done  to  prove  the  value of the  new  find.    The  showing  on Alex. Cameron's claim, the  Gamer-  onian, is most  encouraging,   however,  and indicates the presence  of   a  large  and extensive body of  mineral.    Con-  siderable work is necesary to  develope  the properties in this  section, the mineral being all heavily capped. ,  In viewing the possibilities of Camp  McKinnej'- one is led to believe   that it  was  somewhat  unfortunate  in   being  discovered at the  early  date  it  was.  Had the  discovery  taken  place,   say,  within the last two or even three years  claims which are now idle would be in  full blast,   the  altered   conditions   of  quartz niining  would  have  compelled  the development of such bodies of mineral as are to be found in   the  vicinity  of this camp.    It is much more difficult  to make intending investors believe in  the merits of a claim when gazing into'  an old shaft  half  full  of  water  than  when looking at a brand new, prospect  hole.    Resuscitation is a slow  process, -  but   time  and  the  much-talked-about  railway will undoubtedly place  Camp  McKinney where  she  belongs���in>the  front rank of gold mining  camps.    A  good axiom in   niining   is  to  seek  for  gold where  that  metal  is  being  produced, and  to-day   there  is  no  better  field either for  prospector  or  investor  than old Camp McKinney and its surrounding mountains.  f  Fruit # Vegetables  Copper   Street,   Greenwood   City.

ANACONDA   COMMERCIAL   CLUB.  A special meeting- of  the  Anaconda  Commercial Club was held last Saturday, about 20 members being-  present.  The   meeting-   was:called   to   appoint-  trustees and to  consider  the proposal  from Messrs. Tillman  and  Wilson  of  the rental of their,hall.   The president,  '.,  vice-president and secretary were electr  ed, with Messrs. Keffer, Tillman, JLind  and Birnie to constitute  the board  of  trustees and to deal with alljiiatters of  finance.���The reg-ular meeting-  of  the  society was held on Wednesda3r' evening-, the president  in   the  chair.    Mr.  Hind presented the report of  the  committee on the No. 7 road  construction,  showing; that the equivalent of ninety-  two days work   had  been required  to  open  the  route.    On '.motion   of   Mr.  Bennett the report   was  accepted   and  referred to the trustees.  ���/������ In   reply   to   a   question  Mr.   Hind  ,.. stated that he had .drawn the plans ,for  the proposed  bfidg-e  across  Boundary  . creek leading-froni Butte Avenue. The  bridg-e would be sixteen feet wide, and  he thoug-ht, would be creditable to  the  town.    The   contract   to   the builders  had already been let/  .Moved by Mr. Miller, seconded by  Mr. Hickey,'that a standing- vote of  thanks be tendered the Townsite Company for the promptitude with which  this sug-g-estion of the Club had been  responded, to.���Carried.  Mr. Keffer, as chairman of the committee appointed to confer with the  owners of the Wilson hall with reg-ard  to the terms of lease, reported that the  hall could be leased for six months at  Monthly rental of twenty dollars.  Moved by Mr. Miller, seconded, by  Mr. Sawder, that the report of the  committee be accepted.���Carried.  Mr. Hind oh behalf of the Townsite  Company offered the lease of an unoccupied inside lot for six months commencing- from December 1st, at a nominal fig-ure of $1 per month, g-iving- the  option of purchase at present current*  prices of lots, as an inducement to the  first blacksmith locating- in the town.  The following- applications for membership were received : J. Bloug-h, M.  Kaj', J. M. Mitchell,8 and H. M. I*am-b.  Moved by Mr. Hind, seconded bjr Mr.  Land, that provision be made to allow  persons residing- outside of a radius of  15 miles from Anaconda the privileg-e  of joining- the club as non-resident  members on payment of 50c. a month  or   $6   per   annum.     No  non-resident  ���member to be eligible  +-,  or  office or  to  at  the  club  have the power of voting-  meeting's.���Carried.  Mr. Keffer moved that a pamphlet  descriptive of the district, taking- Anaconda as the centre, be published by  the club. After the matter had been  discussed at some leng-th, the president  appointed Messrs. Keffer, . Hind and  Bennett, with Mr. L/anib, as a committee to report on the cost of printing- a  pamphlet of so many pag-es, at the  next: reg-ular meeting.  The contract for the buiiding- of the  bridg-e across Boundary creek at Anaconda has been let to Mark Kay and  John Bloug-h.  The new road to the No. 7 was completed on Monday and is a very satisfactory piece of work.  Crosscutting-on the No.   7 is  being-  to  run at the rate of twenty feet per week.  prU-*l \&�� \d/" \A/' ^a/" \&/~ \^X Xi/^ \6/' \A/' \&f \&f XS/" \&f \&f  <jgv       wgv ���    wgv       w^       ugw       yy*       yft>>       ug^       *tgy      <j$*      %^       gfw       ugv       ��$y '  W.    <J.

HARBER   ��� ��� EDITOR  ��� MANAGER  Subscription, $2.00 per Year, in Advance.  SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1896.  TOPICS FOR THE WEEK-  Mr. Heinze is, we learnv advertising-  for tenders for the construction of three  sections of  the   Columbia  &  Western,  road.   The cost of advertising- to a man  of wealth like Mr. Heinze is a mere detail and therefore this  move  in  itself  cannot be reg-arded in   a  very sig-nifi-  1 cant lig-ht.    Ere, however, the  provincial   house  meets,   the  tenderers   will  have submitted their fig-tires and Heinze  will thus  be able to show whether, to  use a colloquial but expressive phrase,  he is" bluffing1 " or not.    The government's treatment of the companies that  intend applying- for  charters  to  build  railroads   throug-h    this    district   will  doubtless greatly depend  on  Heinze's  movements during- the next few weeks,  and   unless   the  public  estimation  of  that g-entleman's  character is  wrong  he is perfectly aware of the  fact.    By-  the-way it is  not   as   yet   ascertained  that Mr. Heinze has paid into the  provincial treasury   the  sum   of   $50,000,  which according-   to   the   terms   upon  which he obtained his charter and land  subsidy, he was oblig-ed to deposit  before the 17th  of   October.    If   he   has  not, it will be for  the  Government  to  determine   -whether   or not  he  is  entitled'to a renewal of his charter.  A correspondent draws attention in  this issue of The Times to the practice  resorted to , by certain' company promoters in Fairview, viz., paying- a man  so much a day to stake what must be  under the circumstances, unless by the  merest fluke, absolutely worthless  ground, to be doubtless described in a  forthcoming- prospectus as valuable  mining property. There is apparently  no way of preventing- this kind of  swindling-. If, however, the government would appoint a staff of mining  inspectors in connection with that excellent institution the Bureau of Mines,  under Prof. Carlyle, much could be  done to put a too-confiding- public on  its guard ag-ainst fraudulent schemes.  Each district would have a resident inspector whose special duty it would be  to report on claims that were to be put  on the market by stock companies. If  this report was published in the prospectus of the company owning-, such  property, the public could at least be  satisfied���providing- the government  official was honest���that the facts were  not exaggerated. On the other hand,  failure to publish the official report  could be regarded as prima facie evidence of fraud. Of course the inspector's duties would not be limited to reporting on properties; the inspection  of working mines with a view to ascertaining- that proper precautions were  taken ag-ainst the occurrence of accidents, would be among- the more important of the functions required of  such an official.  The proposal to institute a Board of  Trade in Boundary has been discussed  for some weeks past, but from information which has been recently received  it is found that for several reasons the  original project cannot for the time  being- be effected. . A meeting is, however, called for Thursday evening- next  (December 3rd), for the purpose, of disr  cussing the practicability of organizing- an association in the interests of  trade and the mining- industry in Boundary Creek. This association will ultimately evolve itself into a district  Board of Trade. It is to be hoped that  the meeting- will be well attended.  It is decidedly to the interest ot the  miners of Boundary creek not to delay  the org-anization of a local branch of  the Union until the last moment., Had  the Rossland branch been established  a few months earlier, the three and a  half dollars a day wage would thereafter have been paid without question  by mine-owners.  p^ORBES   M.

A new map of the Greenwood town-  site has been drawn by; Messrs. Sanson! & Holbrook and is a ��� most creditable production. According- to this  map three new blocks have been added  to the north of the town. On the slope  of the hill fronting- the street that has  been christened Kimberly avenue, a  number of residential lots have been  platted. These lots have a frontag-e of  ISO feet and are 350 feet deep. In this  part of the town the valley " sensibly  widens and the area is sufficiently great  to admit of a population of 5,000 people.  Three new streets have also been laid  out, named respectively Providence,  Brooklyn, and Pass streets, leading- at  rig-ht angles to Government street  from Boundary creek. From the corner of Deadwood street, in a northerly  direction, allowance has been made  for the widening- of Government street  to 70 feet.

The Rambler Mining- Company propose to cut a sleig-h road from Pass  creek to Greenwood.  It is reported that between 150 to 200  men are employed developing- properties on Myers' creek. ^  Georgfe Bdwards, of Edwards' Ferry,  is said to have made a rich strike to the  west of Christina lake, last week.  A tunnel is being- driven to strike the  ledg-e on the   Clifton,   the  property  of  the Coolg-ardie  Mining-   Company   in  Copper camp.  A quarter interest in the Jack Pot,  an extension of the Buttercup in Wel-  ling-ton camp, has been sold. No work  has yet been done on the claim, but  the^surface showing-is remarkable.  A very favorable report on the richness and extent of the mineral deposits  of Boundary has been made by a well-  known German mineralog-ist, Mr. A.  Hamer, who spent several months this  summer in the district. <  Work on the Stemwinder is to be  ���suspended temporarily, fiotwithstandr  ing-that the result of recent development has proved eminently satisfactory. During- Mr. Farrell?.s visit some  few weeks ago, he seriously contemplated erecting-a smelted on the property next spring-.  The Ophir in Welling-ton camp, owned by Joe Taylor, is looking- very well.  It has a twenty inch ledg-e carrying-  native silver and free gold. The shaft  . is now down 25 feet. "Another nearby  property, the Butte, has a most promising- appearance-with two and  a  half  feet of clean ore at the foot  of  the  20  ������ \ - .. . ~ ������.       -      ..'���������������     ?  foot shaft.  Andrew Hansom, who returned on  Saturday from Okanogan, Wash.,  states that mining- activity is reviving-  at Ivoomiston. A few years ag-o Iyoo-  miston had a larg-e population, and a  great excitement followed the discovery  of bodies of free-milling- ore in the  vicinity. Several stamp-mills were  installed, but were in operation than  as development proceeded the ore began to turn base and the!������ mills' were  forced to close down.  At the School of Practical Science  and Mineralog-y in Toronto an assay  was made .last week of some rock from  the Minnehaha claim (Camp McKinney). The samples were estimated by  the students in the laboratory to g-o  from $8 to $12, and much surprise was  manifested when the cupel was taken  from the furnace and the bead shown.  The value was at the rate of $107 in  g-old and $2.51 in silver.  The Colville reservation prospectors  coming- into town for winter, bring- reports that g-o far to justify the claims  of mineral riches that were made before the land was opened to white men.  thoug-h much work must yet be done  before the first promises beg-in to be  fulfilled. Enough has been shown this  season to satisfy everybody that the  great reservation will add much to the  wealth of Washington in the next ten  years. But there is one feature of the  case to be deeply regretted; that the  mineral laws should have permitted  a few greedy fellows to stake out hundreds of claims which they have not  the slightest intention of developing  but which they can hold without one  stroke of work until January 1, 1897.  ���Spokane Chronicle.

Hansom, Kelly, Murray and  Steele are working on the Eulu in  Kimberly camp.  John Shear,has heen working for the  .past nionths on the Homestake and  Idaho Trinket in Summit camp. Both  claims look well. The Homestake has  an 8-foot lead, the ore assaying $42 for  all values.,   .  ���Sinking was started on the Ironsides  Monday afternoon, the shaft having  previously been emptied of water. The  compan3r have built a large and substantial shaft house, and a "Common-  sense " whim is in operation.  The ore in the tunnel of the Mother  Eode is gradually but certainly improving in character and is becoming  more siiicious. Already the ledge has  been proved for 60 feet; and the proba-  >   bilities are. that it will be twice as.wide.  Judging from some specimens  brotight down this week, the Big Four  in  Kimberly  cariip  is  improving  im-  . hieiisely with the progress of developments  T^ taken from  ���..;. a depth of eight feet and showed a  large proportion of copper pyrites.  Mr. S. S�� Fowler,>M.--^..,;-whose'���������re-'���  portslast  winter  on  Boundary  creek  were the means of /attracting much attention to the district, is again visiting  , the camp, and accompanied by Mr. W.  T. Thompson went out to the Curlew  creek camps this week. Mr. Fowler  was ..greatly surprised at the rapid  growth made by the new towns since  last spring.        -.  Jim Cunningham went up to Summit  camp this week to work on the Columbus, a north-west extension of the Summit, and on the Remainder, a fractional   claim   on   the   Emma    lead.    The  '.Columbus is a big iron-capping, assaying $6 in gold and $5 in silver, aud can  be traced for 600 feet. A tunnel is to  be run and the ledge crosscut. The,  Remainder, upon which a shaft has  been sunk 15 feet, has a 40-foot ledge  carrying copper, silver and gold.  The half-interest in the Jewel owned"  by F. Dittnier was bonded on Tuesday  by Mr. Eeslie Hill, acting for the  Prospecting Syndicate of British Co.-  lumbia. The price on the bond was  $15,000, 10 per cent, of which was paid.  The Jewel was located by Messrs. Bos-  hart and Dittmer last yea.r, , and the  claim is one of ��� the'most promising in  Eong Eake camp. The ledge is about  five feet Wide, and ore is very high-  grade. Very little development work  has been done on the property, but at  the bottom of the 8-foot shaft or prospect hole there is a magnificent showing of almost "clean" galena. The  syndicate how hold a bond ��� on the entire claim with the exception of an  eighth interest owned by Mr. Garland.  THE   BALL   AT   MIDWAY.  The ball g-iven by Messrs. McAuley  & Euncly at Midway on Thanksgiving-  Day, to celebrate the opening of the  new addition to the Boundary hotel,  was by general consent acknowledged  to be the most successful affair of its  kind yet attempted in the district.  Dancing commenced at 8.30 p.m. and  was maintained until 5 in the morning  to the music provided by an orchestra  of an organ, three violins and a banjo.  At midnight an excellent collation of  cold fowl, game, salads and cake- was  served in the large dining-room in the  new addition to the hotel, covers being  laid for nearly 150 persons. The room,  which is very handsomely finished and  panelled with cedar and, tamarac, was  tastefully decorated and festooned with  flowers. Notwithstanding the extreme  severity of the weather, a large number of guests arrived from a distance,  among whom were Mr., and the Misses  McEaren, from Carson; Miss Horn-  chan, from Nelson, Wash. ;? Mr. and  Mrs. Shonquest, Mr. and Mrs. Phelan,  Mr. and Mrs..

T. Paton. In  the evening- thirteen g-uests sat down  to supper in the dining-room of the hotel, Mr. Sansom toasting the bride and  bridegroom ; arid later/the Greenwood  City band serenaded the happy couple.  Among the wedding presents were the  following : Wedding cake, Mrs. Hardy;  set of silver knives and forks, Mr. D.

[Special Correspondence.]  No  better news  has  ever  been  received in Fairview than that of the incorporation of a company   in  Toronto  to develop the Smuggler mine. Among-  the directors are some of the  most  influential men in Toronto, and, there is  no question but that ample funds will  be forthcoming- to develop the property.  Stock is offered at 25c. and  the  whole  100,000 shares are likely to be snapped  up  quickly,   one  order   in  Vancouver  alone calling for  25,000  shares.    Tenders have been  called  for  a  10-stamp  mill and a cyanide plant, and  work  is  expected to be in full .swing within 60  days.     Notwithstanding  the  set-back  caused by the miserable  fiasco  of  the  Strathyre company,   the  environment  of Fairview camp and its natural facilities for the working- of claims, ensure  its prosperity at an early day.  A surprisingly large number of stock  companies are being formed to acquire  and work quartz properties here in  Fairview. While a revival in the mining interests in this camp is a matter  for congratulation, it is more than  doubtful if the present activity will  not do the camp as a whole more harm  than good. Very few properties of  merit are being stocked���the promoters  confining their attention mostly to the  undeveloped and hitherto unknown  claims.    In many cases the method  of  procedure has been to make a small  preliminary cash payment, and then  for the balance load up the owner with  stock certificates. One company has  made a decided improvement on this  however, finding it cheaper and altogether more satisfactory to hire a man  by the day to stake vacant quartz for  thern. In this way they have acquired  some number of claims.  W.   JAKES,   M.D.,   CM.,  BY  APPOINTMENT  Resident Physician to Kettle  River District.  Office      .:       :       Greenwood. B.C.
