Vol, III,  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15/ 1897/        5S Na 6,  AN   ENCOURAGING   REVIEW.  OW that the tine-weather season is drawing- to a  close it would seem a fitting-time to review the  progress made during- the past year, rather than  Ito yield to the very natural depression of spirits  the anticipation of the early approach of winter,  with its attendant dulness and comparative inactivity, is apt to occasion. People generally, and  those with great expectations particularly, are much disposed to dwell upon the darker side of the picture when  what appeared to be reasonable hopes have not been realized, and patience, already sorely tried, has again to be ex-  ~eFcised. Many, know too well the discouraging force of the  saying, " Hope def erred maketh sick the heart. "And truly,  when the bright prospects the passing season opened with,  especially in. regard to promise of early railway construction and the consequent removal of transportation difficulties, are called to mind, it must be admitted that the disappointment caused bjr their non-realization is excusable.  The opening-up of an extensive mining district and the  effectual development of its resources are, however, onerous  and prolong-ed tasks, not to be lightly entered upon, and,  when undertaken, not to be relinquished whilst success is  possible. ' Pluck, endurance, industry and dogged persistence are indispensable traits in the characters and disposi-  tionsoof those who would, succeed. If these be wantiner,  failure is almost, if not quite/certain, which fact cannot be  too strongly impressed upon the minds of all directly concerned. These attributes will eventual^ compel success,  even though the district be isolated and capital be somewhat  slow of investment in it. There is no royal road to success  in these matters, nothing but the parallel that may well be  applied���-first the blazed line of exploration, then the roug-h  trail of prospecting, next the cut-out wagon road of development, and finally the railroad of returns and, probably, of  dividends. It is not too much to claim that several of the  Boundary Creek mining camps are now starting along"the  third of these, whilst the last of them, though hitherto  somewhat of a will-o'-the-wisp, is regarded by many as now  practically assured, although scarcely likely to be available  in the coming year.  Allowing, then, that delays and disappointments have  marked the season now closing, what redeeming features  are there to warrant even a measure ot satisfaction with  results achieved or of eiicouragment from prospects ahead ?  Coming still closer to the point, has there, as a matter of  fact, been any material result attained, or is there anvthinar  that may be fairly regarded as encouraging in the outlook?  A few comparisons may in themselves suppU^ answers to  these pertinent questions. Welling-ton camp, long regarded  as having shipping ore in large quantities, was, a year ago,  practically dead���now the Golden Crown is being S3\stemat-  ica.lly developed by a .mining company having ample financial resources, and which has already ordered for the mine  a pumping" and hoisting plant equal to sinking to 400 or 500 ;  feet at least. The Winnipeg, too, has changed hands and  the company now owning��it will, it is stated by well informed parties, shortly begin extensive development with a  number of men and a mining- plant of adequate capacity.  Greenwood camp appears to have taken a new lease of life,  the Old Ironsides now being in good shape for sinking to a  considerable depth, its new machinery running- smoothly,  its underground prospecting- well in hand, and its plans for  the coming- winter including vigorous and continuous working- policy, which will be applied as well to the .adjoining-  Knob Hill,   also   under   the   same   management.'    Skylark  camp has also made progress, later result   work   below the  surface at the Skylark mine   being  more satisfactory than  was the case earlier, and developments at the I^ast  Chance  having induced   its   owners   to extend  their   mining operations.    Smith's camp, too, makes a better showing now than  last year, the Republic  Mining   Company's claims   having  been further worked, the Boundary Falls claim showing- iip  \exy encouragingly at the 70 feet level and   the   Golconda  proved   to   be  a  verj'/ promising-  property.    In Deadwood  camp the MotherXode comes first,   both   as to   woi'k   done  and the immense body of ore exposed, with every indication  of permanence as operations continue.    In fact  were   there  no other property in the camp giving promise of developihg  iiitb a mine, this one alone   would   attract   general   notice.  The . Sunset is improving right along/and good progress is  being made at the Great Hopes, while arrangements for extensively   prospecting    the    Anacondci    have   been     completed. But it is Summit camp that has lately come most into prominence.    It was already known -that such claims as  the Oro Denero,,Emma, R. Bell, Cordick and others/would  sooner or later make a name for this camp, but  the  discovery of a big lode of high   grade   ore on the B.C. has given  the camp an impetus that was wanting earlier.    The vigorous developriient on the B. C. is being-   watched  with  more  than   ordinary   interest,    and  important and  far-reaching  results therefrom are   confidently  anticipated. "Outside   of  proving  still   more 7'effectually   that   the No; 7 is indeed a  ���mine, there has been; little progress in Central camp, where  the   big"   ore   bodies,   already   partially   opened up   there,  remain unworked.  Neither at Pass creek or Kimberly camp has much progress been made, these outlying camps, seemingly, having  to wait longer for their turn/which will doubtless   come   in  due time. The head of Nicholson creek, now known as  West Copper camp, has recently been freel\r examined and  numerous locations have there been made. There are, too,  other parts of the district and mati3r other claims than those  named, which might be mentioned to swell the record of  progress made. Of course there have been disappointments  but whether from wrongly-directed work, lack of funds, or  avoidable causes, it is not necessary' to here attempt to determine, but the fact remains, that progress in Providence,  Copper and Iyong I^ake camps has, been retarded to a disappointing-extent.  On the whole, though, the year's   record  of   mining work  is a creditable one, and it now remains for all interested  to  maintain a good heart and to  do   their   utmost to   keep the  ball of progress rolling.    Did space permit  much   might be  added to show that in   many   other  respects   a  distinct advance has been made, but for the present only some of these  may be referred to, and that  but   briefly.    Communication  with   the   mining-  camps   b}' road and trail has been much  improved, postal facilities have been added'to,'.freight matters have been   placed   upon a   less   unsatisfactory footing,  visitors desirous of btrying claims have been numerous, and  the voting power of the district and, as   a  consequence,   its  influence with the provincial government, has been increased.    In the towns improvement   has   been considerable and  substantial.    Greenwood leads in this respect,  its   hospital,  public school, and   commercial establishments, earlier, and  later its incorporation, and arrangements for   the   improvement of the town, and the protection of the health and property of its inhabitants all evidencing advancement.    There  is   therefore   much   to   encourag-e and hearten, and it only  remains for residents throughout this larg-eand increasingly  important district to determine that the\r will unite in making- " a long- pull, a strong pull, and a jmll all together."  ��>(���  ���5>J��-  ?,(.  PROMISCUOUS   STAKING.  The " B. C. Mining- Record " publishes the following- and  invites criticism thereon ���  The Provincial Mineralogist, Mr. Carlyle, during his  visit  this year to the Trout   I^ake  district,   discovered instances  ���"^���ts-  ���in -��4i    vii THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  where  ad van tag-e had   been   taken   of  the leniency or looseness of the law in  regard   to   the    location    of    mineral  claims, and   one  case of a man having-  staked  no   less   than   sixt3r   claims   in  this district is mentioned. Promiscuous  staking is a very common   practice   in  newly-established .mining- districts, and  a certain class of prospectors devote a  season's work  exclusively   to  locating-  large tracts of land, not with the expectation of discovering- mineral   thereon  and developing  the   find,   but  on   the  off-chance of selling- out in boom times.  ->.-    �����������-���'���-��-���'/It is distinctly in the interests  of the province that legislation should  be introduced to discourag-e the industry'���  Yet  how   to  put a   stop  to   wild-cat  staking and at the same time throw no  obstacle in the way of legitimate prospecting is a somewhat difficult problem  and   Mr.   Carlyle's   sug-g-estioii   that  a  prospector hereafter should be  obiig-ed  to do assessment work  to   the value of  $100 within sixty days of the recording  of a find has raised a  storm  of  objection   in   Kootenay    districts,   on   ,the  ground chief!3' that such   a  reg-ulation  would discourag-e  the   poorer class of  prospectors from   following- their calling.    A better plan,   we   think,   is   to  allow no transfer or  sale  of  any  new  location or an interest therein to be recorded   unless   assessment   work   has  been previously  performed.    But even  here you leave a loop-hole whereof the  unscrupulous will take advantage, and  after all it is questionable whether such  an amendment would strike at the root  of the evil.  We would, therefore, submit the following sugg-estion in the hope  that   it  will prove of some practical value : The  government  should   appoint  in   every  ���mining division an official sttrve3''or at  an adequate salary.    Every prospector  recording* a claim would be   obliged at  the same time  to   notify   this   official,  .who would set a date within  a  certain  period for the'survey of the claim, and  the owner be then compelled to cut out  a trail (not merely blaze lines), following his location lines on the four sides.  A moderate charge, payable tipon issuance of crown grant,   would  of  course  be required to cover the extra expenses  ���of . this   system.     If   this   plan   were  adopted it would, we believe, effectually  check the present  tendency to wild-cat  staking and,   moreover,   materially reduce the   difficulties  of   prospecting- in  thickly   timbered  districts.      Furthermore, official maps (kept up to  date) of  every mining- district should be obtainable at the g-overnment  offices,   and a  prospector would thus at once  be   able  to   learn   what  land   was   vacant   and  .what   was   occupied.      Ag-ain,   a   man  ���staking- ground but failing- to record it  .should be liable to a very heavy fine or  a term of imprisonment.  A Big  Copper Property.  " In doing development work on   the  ���Copper King" mineral claim  in Boundary Creek (Deadwood) near Greenwood  :some   vei"3'   high  ore   has been struck.  Not enough work has been done on the  claim   to, determine   the   extent of the  ledge, but it can be traced through several claims,  and on the   Mother   L,ode,  which adjoins  the Copper King on the  south, it is over 200 feet wide.    Considerable   work   has been   done   on   this  claim,  and   the width   of the ledge determined by a crosscut tunnel which is  over 300 feet long- and for over 200  feet  is in solid ore.    H. Marymont, who has  just returned from the property is highly elated over the   strike.    He  botig-ht  the property'a 3rear ag-o without seeing-  it.    In   speaking-  of   that  country Mr.  Marvmont   savs  that   as   soon   as the  railroad will reach the mines, business  there,    both   mining-   and   mercantile,  will be the larg-est  in  Canada.    Many  of the claims there   have  pay ore from  the surface, and what is the best of  it,  it is of commercial value and in quantities that will pay to mine   and ship."  ���Rossland Miner.  yjV^^'^-'V^/frT- yr. ���������:���*-:.far ���*-������ -f..#   ^-v^^.^7:.^7-.^^>^.:'^:^;^.|yf77  7i ^Iv^TiFYX.- ���������'< ^T~^7; .< :.--"V^.-V.!,Vl\ -Vo- v]  *M7I^  /!

The   bonding-  of the Snowshoe mineral claim by that very sticcessftil mining man g-enerally known as " Patsy "  Clark is gratifying- in a double senses-  first because the claim, judging- by the  very many indications of the  presence  of large quantities   of good  grade ore,  met   with    throughout   the extensive  prospecting  done   on   it,   gives   much  promise of developing into a  valuable  mine, and next  because Mr. Clark and  his associates,   when they take hold of  a mining property, usually  develop  it  thoroughly   and   vigoi-ousPy,   and that  without unnecessary delay.    There is,  too, the consideration that most of  the  people  who   put   money   into  mining  take  their  cue   from   some prominent  and  successful   mine   operator.    They  are, as a rule, very  like sheep, following their leader,   and who  could   wish  for a better " bell-wether "than Patsy ^  Clark,   whose  reputation   for   shrewdness and sound judgment  is such that  numbers of investors at orice conclude  that  a  mining district he thinks good  enough   to   operate   in   is   also    good  enough   for  them to   invest in ?���'   The,  very fact   that  Mr.   Clark  has turned  his attention to Boundary Creek and is  operating   in it, will be of itself an excellent advertisement  for this district.  The Snowshoe was 'located in Arpil  1893,   by  W..,: A.   McDonald who afterwards sold to Robert  Denzler,   W*   W.  G-ibbs and Thos. McDonnell, but there  has not been   any  subsequent  chang-e  of  ownership.    The   claim  was at one  time, together with the Gold Drop and  Monarch, bonded by Geo.  Turner  and  F.   C.   limes, of Vancouver, representing the Montreal   and  B.   C.,   P.  & P.  Co., but   the   Snowshoe  bond was   not  taken up. ��� Ivatterly   there  have  been  several parties neg-otiating for   it,   but  J. D. Harvey acting-for Mr. Clark, was  the first one   prepared   to  close   a deal  for it.    This   deal  was made   through  ID.   A.   Bielenberg   and   J.' Lucy,   as  agents for   the  owners.    The   bond   is  for $50,000   payable   in three equal instalments,    at ..six,   nine   and   twelve  months  from  date.    Meanwhile  work,  is to be continous, commencing- within  ten days.    Mr. Harvey   will  direct the  mining work,   which,   it is   understood  will be pushed energetical^  from   the  start.  Boundary  Creek Celebrates.  The Boundary Creek visitors to the  Spokane Fruit Fair gave a banquet to  themselves and friends at the Spokane  hotel, Spokane, last Tuesday evening*.  This enjoyable function was arranged  by a committee consisting- of Henry  White, White's camp, chairman ; J. C.  Haas, Greenwood, secretary ; and A. S.  Black, Greenwood ; Jas. McNicol, Midway, and Iw. A. Manly, Grand Forks.  The Spokesman-Review says: The  spread was excellent, the company congenial and the evening passed most  pleasantly. The following toasts were,  drunk : " The Fruit Fair, " "Mining  Industry," " Our Invited Guests,"  '" Kettle River Mining District," and  "The Ladies."  Besides the committee those present  were Mesdames J. Palmer, I*. -A- Manly, J. McNicol, J. Sutherland, Mr. and  Mrs. E. Spraggett, Mr. and Mrs. L,.  K.

Nothing- is stated to indicate  that early construction of either of the,  other sections of the Coast-Kootenay  line is contemplated.  "LOCAL  NOTES.

D. Glaze has about finished his  , contract for the work of improving- the  road from Midway down the Kettle  river valley to Curlew creek. The  road as now laid out is certainly' a  great improvement upon the old road.  It entirely avoids crossing the river,  which previously had to be forded at  six different places, besides reducing  the road distance between Midway and  Curlew creek between three and four  miles. Only about four miles of the  fifteen miles of old road have been  utilized,, there being between seven  and eight miles of new road cut out,  made and graded. Three rock points  were encountered, and these were  blasted off, this work involving the  removal of several hundred yards of  rock, and the construction of some very  substantial trestles. Already the advantages the new road offers are being  recognized by freighters and drivers  of lighter vehicles, as well as by prospectors with pack horses, the travel  over it being rapidly on the increase.  It is probable that during the coming  winter much of the travel from Marcus  and Grand Prairie to Boundary Creek  will be by this route. The improvement niade is due to the enterprise of  the Midway Company, which has expended nearly $2,500 in carrying out  this useful work. The people of Nelson, Wash., are now repairing- the connecting road.  B. C. Ore for Wales.  A contemporary states that Vivan &  Sons, well-known smelter men ,of  Swansea, Wales, are, through their  Vancouver agent, offering to purchase  B. C. ores upon the following terms :  Seventy-five per cent, of the assay  value of shipments, upon determination of this at Vancouver, and the balance, less transportation, charges, upon  arrival of the ore at Swansea. It is  asserted that the price offered by this  Welsh firm for copper ore 7 is nearly  double that obtainable from American  buyers.. Several consignments of ore  are reported to have already been sent  forward, and it has been decided to at  once establish well-equipped sampling  works at Vancouver in this connection.  Which Will He  Take ?  "If the reports are true that Mr.  Heinze has a force of engineers in the  field surveying a route for a railroad  between Penticton and the Columbia  river, it is pertinent to ask the government to ascertain at once whether it is  the intention of the Columbia & Western Railway Company to accept the  land grant subsidy or the cash bonus  of $4,000 per mile for the construction  of that part of the road from Penticton  to Boundary Creek. If the latter  alternative is preferred, and it probably will be, the land reserved to the  railway company should at once be  thrown open to settlers."���-B. C. Mining Record.    . ���   .

Georg-e McKag-ue lost a horse last  week, the animal having- died when  out at pasture. 7  A. H. Harrison when in Greenwood  last Tuesday reported g-ood progress  being' made in sinking- the shaft on the  B. C, Summit camp.  J. Christie, veterinary surg-eori, was  occupied on Monday and Tuesday last  examining horses on the rang-es west  of the lower part of Boundary creek.  F. Ripple, M.E., Victoria, and J.. Lt.  Smith, of Spokane, having- completed  their examination of the Monarch and  Tamarac claims, Greenwood camp,  went out on last Sunday's stag-e.  J. M. McGreg-or, P.I^.S., of Rossland,  arrived by Tuesday's stag-e, having-  come over for the purpose of survey ing-  the Comstock mineral claim, Smith's  camp, in which he is interested with  others.  Sinclair Inkster was taken to the  Greenwood hospital last Sunday. He  was suffering- with some internal  trouble, relief from which he has since  obtained under the skilful treatment of  Dr. Jakes.  Since his return from Baker creek K.  A. Bielenberg- has been prospecting-  the Forest Grove and Excelsior, two  fractional claims lying- between the  Anaconda and Marg-uerite, in Dead-  Wood camp.  It is reported that the railway survey  ���party, in charg-e of Engineer Sullivan,  has worked down from the summit of  the divide to within two miles of Rock  Creek, and is now working-from the  .summit down   towards the  Okanaeran.  Last Saturday Alderman Ham ill left  Greenwood for Armstrong-, where business matters require his attention for a  time. He has been granted leave of  absence by the City Council, but it is  unlikely he will be absent from this  district any great leug-th of time.  James McClung-, of Midway, who on  Aug-ust 5th, met with a very serious  .shooting- accident when out deer hunting" >  recovery  to get about, his injuries being- chiefiy  to his rig-lit hand, from which he has  lost the thumb and the top of a fing-er,  and to his left arm, which was broken  between the elbow and shoulder. It is  several weeks since he left the Greenwood   hospital,   and   now he has so far  is   now  well   on the way towards  Though maimed, he is able  recovered that only an occasional visit  to Dr. Jakes is necessary.  Dr. J. W. Powell, of Victoria, accompanied by A. H. Craven, M. $., has  been staying- at Anaconda for a few  da3rs. Dr. Powell represents English  capital, and Mr. Craven came in with  him, in his professional capacity of  mining- expert, to examine some mining- properties that had been offered to  the former.  The attention of the City Council is  called to the unsafe condition of the  sidewalk between Kerr & Flood's and  Olson & Phelan's establishments on  Government street. The planks are in  places so far apart that ladies and  children using- the sidewalk run much  risk of serious injury. Two instances  occurred lately���one of a lady and the  other of a child���of afoot being- caug-ht  between the planks.  Andrew Hamilton, lately working- in  the Old Ironsides tunnel, is ver}' anxious to ascertain the whereabouts of  his 3roung-est brother, Alexander Hamilton, whoni he last heard of as living  on Mill creek, Utah, in the fall of 1884.  If anyone in this district should happen to have more recent tidings of the  latter, Old Andy (as he calls himself)  would take it as a great kindness to be  informed thereof.  Joseph McDowell, of Anaconda, is  hauling- log's for Tillman's mil! at Mc-  Cudd3r's. James Grant has a contract  tor cutting- the timber. The mill is  kept running- full time, orders coming-  in freely from Camp McKinney and  Fairview and neighboring parts. The  lumber, both fir and pine, turned out  is clear and otherwise of excellent  quality, some of the boards running- 20  feet without a knot or flaw. A gang  edg-er is being- added  to the mill plant.  R. H. Hutton, Jr., of Colorado, was  at Boundary Creek for the first time  early in the current week. He visited  several of the more prominent of the  mining- properties in Wellington and  Greenwood camps, and afterwards  went out on the Penticton stag-e. As  he is associated with the owners of several dividend-paying- mines in Colorado  it is hoped that his account of wha.t he  saw in this district ma3r direct their  attention to it, with a view to investment.

COPPER   STREET  GREENWOOD,   B.C.  rPI  LIBERAL    CONVENTION.  Press reports in the coast, newspapers show the attendance at the Liberal  Convention, held at New Westminster-  on the 8th and 9th inst., to have been  as follows: Victoria 38, 'Vancouver  Island (other than Victoria) 9, Vancouver 27, New Westminster ( city and  district) 26, Yale and Cariboo 14, other  places 9.    Total 123 delegates.  Aulay Morrison, M. P., was voted to  the chair, and J. H. Kerr of Vancouver  was appointed secretary. ID. P. Davis,  of Vancouver, moved that the press  representatives be excluded from the  meeting but J. C. McLagan, of the  Vancouver World, carried an amendment to the contray, by 49 votes to 47.  The British Columbia Liberal Association was org-anized, with Wm. Temple-  man, Victoria, as President; J. H.  Kerr, Vancouver, Secretary and D. Mc-  Kechnie, Nanaimo, Treasurer. Vice-  presidents were elected as follows :  Victoria City, Ceo. Riley ; Burrard, E}.  P. Davis; New Westminster, Alex  Henderson; Vancouver Island, John  Slugget; Yale-Cariboo, Wm. Baillie ;  An executive committee of three members from each Dominion electoral district was also chosen. It was decided  to send a congratulatory address to Sir  Wilfrid lyaurier on his elevation to  Knighthood, and on his recent success  in Great Britain.  A motion declaring the emphatic opposition of the convention to the present Provincial Government was carried almost unanimously. A proposition to support, at the next provincial  election, only such candidates as. shall  oppose the present government, was  carried, after amendments by those  wrho desired to see the next election  carried out on party lines had been  defeated. Completion of the work of  drafting the association's platform  was, after much time had been taken  up discussing- the matter, left to the  executive committee. Hearty votes of  thanks to the chairman and secretary  closed the proceeding's, which throughout were marked by much earnestness  and enthusiasm.  Wagon Road to Summit Camp.  The Rossland Miner publishes the  following despatch from Grand Forks :  W. H. Fisher is at present in'charge  of a gang of five men building a wagon  road from Greenwood to Summit camp  and expects to have that road completed in a week's time. At present  the people of Grand Forks have raised  nearly enough money to build a road  from this town to Summit camp also,  and expect to have it finished in a  couple of weeks time. When these two  roads are completed Summit camp will  be provided with two outlets, one into  the Boundary Creek section and the  other into the Kettle River district.  The foregoing must have reference  to the work being done at the B.C.  end of the road; There are now  six men working from the Eholt creek  end, laying out the route, clearing, etc.  Upon J. Lindsay's return from Spokane he will take in teams and outfit  and the work of grading will then be  proceeded with. It is intended to push  on with the work so as to complete it  within two or three weeks.  DISSOLUTION   OF   PARTNERSHIP.

Bielenberg- returned last   week  from   prospecting-   the Honolulu claim  at Baker creek, which joins Rock creek  about twelve miles above the mouth of  the latter.    Mr.   Bielenberg-   owns the  Honolulu   group  of   three   claims, the  Honolulu, Angio-Saxon and Germanic.  These   are   adjoining-   claims   located  above some old placer working-s which  were worked probably thirty years ag-o.  Mr. Bielenberg-   broug-ht  in some nice-  looking specimens from the   Honolulu,  upon which claim heTias done most   of  his work in  that   locality.    One   piece  of rock obtained a little  below the surface is honeycombed  and gold, visible  to the naked ey^e. occurs freely   in   the  decomposed matter in the .cells.    There  is on the Honolulu a well defined ledg-e  of   porphyritic   quartz   eight   feet   in  width   and   returning- assay values of  from  60  cents  to  $7  in gold.    About  four feet from   the   main vein is a pay  streak varying from twelve to eighteen  inches   in   width,    an    averag-e   assay  yielding* $42 in,' gold.    The  rich   specimen   ore  referred  to  above occurs on  the top of this vein, which   g-ets   solid  as   it  goes down.    It appears   to be   a  spur from the   main vein.    The latter  has been stripped fors about 20 feet and  crosscut   at   intervals   for   about  1000  feet, one open cut being nearly 15  feet  iri     depth.    It  can   be   traced     down  through, all   three claims to the placer  working's   below,   over   a   distance of  more  than   4000  feet.    On   the Anglo-  Saxon a 20-foot body of  white quartz,  an assaj' from which g"aye a g-old value  of $2.40, junctions with the porphyritic 0  vein coming- in from the Honolulu, and  with it crosses the Germanic.  Another claim Mr. Bielenberg- has is  the Empress, situated some five hundred yards east of the Anglo-Saxon.  There is about five feet of arsenical  iron and quartz, assa3rmg $4 on this  claim, but the ore is apparently not in  place, and more work is necessai-y- to  find the ledge.  These claims are on the surveyed  route for the projected Columbia-Pen-  ticton railway, the surve3r line passing*  within 1000 feet of the Honolulu.  The Anaconda.  K. M. JE>. Munns, of Rossland who,  with A. H. Woodhouse, last June bonded the Anaconda group of three claims,  in Deadwood camp, started four men,  on Mondaj'* the 11th inst., to drive a  tunnel on the Anaconda claim. It is  proposed to shorty put on a full force,  but not until after the necessar}-* mine  building-s have been completed. Meanwhile arrang-ements are being- made  for the erection of these building-s, and  other preparations are being forwarded  for thoroughly prospecting- and developing the big- deposits of ore discovered on the Anaconda and partly opened  up by E. A. Bielenberg-.  It will be remembered that the Anaconda group consists of the Anaconda,  Columbia and Kootenay claims, owned  by Mr. Bielenberg, who did such effective surface prospecting, that when  Mr.   Woodhouse's attention was called  to them he at once carefully sampled  and then promptly bonded them. Being situated within a couple of.miles-of  Greenwood, and in open country, they  are easily accessible and offer few, if  any, difficulties to expeditious working-.  Mr. Munhs is in charg-e of the property  and has as his foreman J; C. Hole, a  Colorado mining- man of much experience.    .*������������, '���. ^-   '    '  i PIONEER MERCHANT of  0  Anaconda, B,Cf  -Q^=��>-  Can outfit Prospectors cheaper  and better than any of  his Competitors,  wu^.^.n.miM.innn;  -j._ i^jim.��pT-.^Jj>��M�� .

The former may put in  the winter at work on the Spring-dale  claim, Sk3rlark camp.  The new steamer, City,of Greenwood,  built for service on Dog- lake, will, on  Monday next, commence carrying- .passengers and freig-ht between Penticton  and Okanag-an Kails.  ���-��'  A comfortable dwelling- house is in  course of construction at Midwa}- for  Janies At^ood. It is adjacent to Mr.  Douglas' house, and near!}' opposite to  the Lancanshire House. ..  H. B. Munroe  returned  on  Monday  evening-   from   a   short   visit  to Camp  McKinney'   and    Fairview.      He    left,  Greenwood on Friday morning-, and rode  both to and from Fairview.  A-large band of beef cattle from one  of Mr. Ellis' rang-es passed through  Boundary Creek district early in the  week. These cattle were being-driven  to Rossland;for market purposes.  The meeting- of the   shareholders   of  the Brandon &, Golden   Crown   Mining-  Company called for Tuesdaj7-, 19th inst,,:  to  be   held   at   Greenwood,  has  been  postponed Until Tuesdays Nov. 2.

Hug-h   McKee   is*  driving- on Johnnie's end   of  the  Pen-  ���ticton stag-e route  during-  the  latter's  absence.        ���  Angus K. Stuart expects to shortly  pay a brief visit to Vancower. During- his absence E., Jacobs, who goes to  Midwaj' to-da.y expecting- to remain  there three or four weeks, will attend  to some of the townsite business usual1^ transacted b3r Mr. Stuart.,.  A. S. Davis recentlv sent some erood  copper ore, obtained while doing- assessment work on- the Dan Harring-ton  claim, near Pass creek, to the owners,  Messrs. Steep and Mayer, Spokane.  It is probable one of these g-entlemen  will come in .shortly to look at the  claim, with a view to letting- a contract  for opening- up the ore vein.  H3r. Franklin, ah experienced newspaper man.,''is looking- over the ground  preparatory to establishing- a paper at  some point in the ;i mining- belt." Mr.  Franklin was offered inducements to  locate at Fairview, but hearing- of the  excellent.opening-for a. paper at Cascade City, is making- a tour of inspection before deciding-. A bonus is-offered- at both places.  It was expected that before g-oing- to  the coast from the Kootena}*- Sir Chas.  Tupper would visit Boundary Creek,  having- been cordially invited and  urged by some prominent eastern shareholders in the Old Ironsides Mining-  Company to. visit that company's mine  in Greenwood camp. It seems, however, that this expectation is not likely  to be realized just now, Sir Meickenzie  Bowell, who was with Sir Charles for  several clays in the Kootena}-, being-  reported to have told a "News-Advertiser " representative that Sir   Charles  had informed him that he would not be  able to visit the Boundary Creek district.  J. J. 'Caulfield, J. C. McArthur and  C. W. Tynan did a few days' shooting-  and hunting in Summit camp this week.  JR. T. Fvans, a recent arrival from  Virden, Man., is now in charg-e of the  liquor department at Rendell & Co. 's  store.  Jno. H. Morrison, of Deadwood camp,  left yesterday for Osoyoos, to examine  and do some work on a claim on Kru-  g-er mountain.  Frank Chadler, who built the cabins  on the Jewel, has a contract to do similar work on the Anaconda, to which  claim the Great Hopes wag-on road will  shortly be extended.  W. L. Hog-g-, of Montreal, arrived  yesterday. Whilst here he will probably arrang-e for building- winter quarters for the miners working- on the  Sunset claim, Deadwood camp.  It is estimated that the pay rolls of  Camp McKinney now total between  $5,000 and $6,000 per month. As a consequence business is fairly g-ood and  thing-s g-enerally are satisfactory.  J. J. Caulfielcl and J. A. Russell,  trading- as Russell & Co., hardware  merchants, Greenwood, announce today that they have dissolved partnership, the former retiring- from the  business.  Thing-s are rather quiet in Long-  Lake camp just now. The tunnel on  the North Star, now held under bond  by the Prospecting- Syndicate of Brit- <  isli Columbia, is in about ISO feet and  is being: driven still farther, but outside of this there is not much mining-  work   being- clone in   the camp at pres-  ������ ent.

It is pleasing- to find the merits  and remedial advantag/es of' this deservedly popular institution so widely  recog/nized and appreciated as to draw  to it among- its patients even sufferers  . from across the International boundai-y  line. ���'"'.-  Five men are working- on the Herbert Spencer claim, which lies about  half-a-niile south of the Morrison, in  Deadwood camp. The Herbert Spencer was sold by Paul Meyers to Fred.  McMann, who has since accepted  Mayor Wood's, bond for it for $9,000,  pa3rable ten per cent, at the end of this  year and the balance about nine  months hence.  Apparently the '' 3rellow kid '' species  of journalism does not find much favor  with the nierchants of Grand Forks;  notwithstanding- the alternate whining-  and bulldozing- for patronag-e made by  the amateurs who are endeavoring to  eke out an existence in a foreign land,  they have been oblig-ed to resort to  " patent outsides " to keep g-oing-.  And the Spokane-printed side of the  sheet is a distinct improvement, too.  Two, cabins   have   latelv been built  for   the   men   working-   on   the Great  Hopes claim, Deadwood camp, and Mr.  Fox and his men moved, into them last  Weclnesda3r. The owners of the Great  Hopes, Peter Larsen, of Helena, L. L.  Greenoug-h, of Missoula, and T. F.  Wren, of Spokane, intend to shortly  crown grant their other Deadwood  claims, the Toronto and Plutonia, to  secure them ag-ainst any possibility of  being- jumped.  MacDouald & Hall finished their contract for making- the ditch to divert the  waters of Boundaiy Creek on Wednesday evening-. They have cleared and  grubbed the ground 36 feet wide for 817  feet and for the same distance have excavated a ditch six feet in depth and  twelve feet wide at the top and four  feet   at  the  bottom.    The   ditch   is in  four separate leng-ths, and gives the  creek a straig-ht run -where, within the  town limits, there were four bends.  C. 2Q. Shaw, P. L.

" Mr. J. R. R03Y Government Eng-i-  neer in British Columbia, reports the  result of his survey of the six mile  creek connecting- Dog- Eake with Penticton. The stream averaging- about  100 feet in width, was found to be filled  with congested drift, snags and over-  hang-ing-trees. A clearing* party,was '  engaged under contract to clear the  creek in 30 days, by which time a stout  stern-wheel steamer specially constructed for these waters was to be  ready to move freight. Mr. Roy says  that this work will give clear navigation from Penticton to the mining-  camps for 16 miles and will do away  with the hauling- by teams over the  worst piece of public road in the district. Qwing- to the almost impassa-  bility of this road, freight for the  '������, camps in the Boundary Creek district  fa is piled up at Penticton."���News-  Advertiser.  More Romancing.  The Grand Forks Miner recently  published a visionary; article in which  it gave " the sum total of ore estimated  to be producible daily " for smelting-  at Grand Forks or any other available  point in the district, within ninety days  of the "mines" -named being- " properly equipped arid operated." What  was stated to be a partial list of these  mines���very few of -which, by the way,  may properly be called " mines "���was  given. This named 90 properties, the  estimated daily output from which was  placed at 3120 tons. These figures  have been quoted editorially b}r the  Rossland Miner, which is to be regretted, since that widely-circulated journal has a reputation to keep up. To  those conversant with the facts, much  of the article referred to is pure romancing-, as is also the sug-g-estion that such  properties as the Mother Iyode, Big-  Copper, or indeed am^ of the Boundary  Creek claims or mines, will eventually  send ore to Grand Forks for treatment.  When the time arrives for a smelter to  be established for the local treatment  of Bounda^ Creek ores it will be located at a more convenient place than  Grand Forks���in fact negotiations are  now being- carried on with the object  of erecting- a smelter on BoundaryCreek  CAMP   MCKINNEY.  It is reported here that a three-  fourths interest in the Okanagan claim,  which adjoins the Cariboo on the south,  has been obtained by the Cariboo Gold  Mining- Company under a $15,000 bond,  ten per cent, down and the balance in  30 days. The remaining- fourth is held  by John Moran, an old-timer well  known at Boundary Creek, particularly  in connection with the Big- Copper  claim, Copper camp, who is not disposed to sell it.  The steam plant recently installed  at the Minnehaha, mine is now at work  and g-ood progress is being- made in developing* the mine.  J. W. Nelson and his bride were  g-iven a kindl3r welcome here one night  last week. They had retired to rest at  Cameron's hotel, when a number of  friends paid them the compliment of  serenading- them. They soon made  their appearance, and a pleasant hour  followed, the impromptu programme  including" music, songs, recitations,  cong-ratulatoiy speeches and refreshments. Mrs. Nekson quickly won the  hearty g-ood will of all by her vivacity  and sociability.  J. A.

Owns  the  "Golden Grown.';'. mineral claim and has a bond on the "Calumet/' situated in  Wellington camp, Yale District, B,C  KLONDYKE   0GILV1E  One of the characteristic  features of  Mr. Og'ilvie's residence in the country,  which   has been freely commented upon, is-'the   veiw  noteworthy   fact   that  ���'.���although all round .him were men rushing 'with the frenzy of the  gold excite-  ment   to   locate   claims,    he,  with the  7    knowledge that would have proved   invaluable in the choice of likely ground,  has never,   either  by  location   or purchase, become interested in any claim.  Such a'���.f:act'7is worthy of comment, and  it furnishes an. example of adherence to  duty    probably     without    a   parallel.  While   admitting  that  the investment  of three hundred dollars a few months  ago   in a grub stake for two men,! taking in exchange a half interest in their  ciaims, .would have resulted in   his being worth a million dollars to-day, Mr.  Ogilvie modestty disclaimed any credit  for refusing to invest, and it is   almost  certain that had he known at the   time  ��� ;7beyond.-ai^.  possibilit3r   of doubt that  the investment of the $300 would   have  been as profitable as it has proved, his  course of action would  have   been   the  same.     "I had to act up there as a sort  of arbitrator, and I was   not   willing,"  said he, " to place nryself in a position  where   ni3r    personal   interests   might  ���have influenced, my judgment."  ." Regret it-'?"- Mr. Ogilvie continued. " No, not for a moment. As' for  mone3r. I have .plenty to satisfy 'me  during my life, and I cannot take am?  away with .me, and as for my boys,  the3r must work their wa3r, as, I have  done, and they will be all the better  'men for it."  Such is William Ogilvie, Dominion  surveyor, who is known and honored  as one who is above suspicion from the  eastern provinces to that far-off Yukon  countr3r with the history and development of which his name will ever be so  closely associated.- -Victoria Times.  y<��*te*-9-4t>-9-*9*-9-lt>*>-9-*a>*9<*9~<0>-9-**1-9~t��>'9<*>'a-*9l��9-4a9>-9<e>'G-<a*'��'<��*-0*<*Y  r  9  &  A      . h ��� .���..���������  ----- "���   . �����������-  *9<9*9-+9*-9+9>-9+9>9<9>-9-4*>-9~*9>-9-49*-9-49>9**9*>-9-49+-9-*9P-9-49+-9-4Q>9-*.9>-9-49L  Winchester,   Marlin   and  Savage  Rifles.

A coast newspaper editor who,   as a  prophet, was   a   distinct   failure   when  resident at Boundary Creek, says: "We  venture to predict that   with   the   completion of the Crow's   Nest   Pass   road  and    the    consequent,    cheapening   of  smelting   and   transportation   charges  there will   be   twenty   dividend-paying  mines in the province   where   there   is  one to-day."    That is   to   say.   for   example, if Kootenay has   teti   dividend-  payers to-day it will have two hundred  upon completion of the railroad named.
