At that time the  working1  shaft  was  being-sunk under  the superintendence of Dave O'Neill.  Mr. O'Neill stated that drifting- would  beg-in at the' 220 foot level which he expected to, reach in 20 days.0 The statement   was  then   made  that the drift  would surely encounter ore as the surface   indications    pointed    to   several  parallel ore   belts   that ran  at   right  angles to .the direction of the proposed  drift.    That statement has been  more  than verified.    The drift which is now  in about 80 feet, has run   into the most  striking, body of ore that has yet been  exposed in the Boundary  Creek  country.    The whole face of the drift is  in  solid  copper ore.    A large block was  taken to Eholt by Mr. O'Neill, and  it  created considerable excitement among  railway   men   who   have   extensively  purchased     King  /Mining-    company  shares.      Al  once  several   interested  parties went to the mine and examined  the drift.    Theyconfirm the statement  made by Mr.'O'Neill. 7   There does not  appear to be an inch 7 of "waste' iti" the  whole   face of the drift.    The pre;is  similar   in   character to that already  found on the Oro Denoro, giving;, good  gold values and running-high in copper.    This drift will be continued  and  will cut  through two  or three other  ledges that can  be. traced on the  surface. ���'      ���.:7:/' '������ .;'���'' V* ���:��� \- '\';  The citizens of Grand Forks are very  properly taking considerable interest  in Franklin cainp,.up the '.'North E'ork  of the Kettle river. The camp is nearly  60 miles from Grand Forks,. but the  merchants are reaching-" but for the  trade. They "succeeded in inducing- the  provincial government ��to build a trail1  to connect with the wagon ro id. That  the camp possesses merit is evidenced  by the fact that Henry White, the well  known mining man, has bonded properties there^ Greenwood took very little interest in this new camp, because  few realized that it could be made  tributary to the city. A well known  prospector .is the authority' for the  statement that Franklin camp is not  over thirty miles from Greenwood and  that a trail could be built for a comparatively small amount. There is a  good pass from the head of Long* Lake  to Franklin camp. This route'has a  much easier grade than that from  Grand Forks. If the trail were built,  it would shorten the distance one-half  and the V trade would actually be  diverted to'this city. The matter is  well worth the investigation of the  Board of Trade.  At present 14 men   are at work   on  the No. 7 mine in Central camp, owned  by the No. 7 Mining company, limited.  They are eug-aged  in erecting- a shaft  house, boiler room, bunk and boarding  houses, carpenter shops, etc., preparatory to the further, developmenfof  the  property.    Nothing-  was done  on  the  No. 7 for over over a year as  Mr. Keffer, the manag-er, considersd it wise to  await the  advent of  a railway before  engaging   in   further   work.     At the  time  work   was  discontinued   a  large  amount of development had  been  carried out.    The shaft  was sunk a depth  of 140 feet; at the bottom over 600 feet  of crosscutting- and   drifting- was done.  A second  shaft is 66 feet deep with a  crosscut   of   2S   feet   at    the; bottom.  There is a lead over 850 in  length and  averaging- 2%   to   2%   feet   in width.  The ore. is a quartz,   carrying-  galena,  zinc blende, gold and copper.    It as Al  concentrating- ore.    Fifteen tons can be  reduced to one of concentrates  and 90  per   cent   of 'the   values saved.   The  average; value is $20,   this  being,obtained from over 75 assays. ; The company, are purchasing-,, a plant for the.  mine.   It will comprise a 50-hore power  boiler,  a friction hoist with a 30-inch  drum, a pump with  a   capacity   of 400  gallons per  minute arid all" the necessary appurtenances.''   A road is being;  built from Greenwood to Central camp.  It will be completed, to the No. 7 before  the plant arrives. ;.;'       ,'.. 7i ,    ���  J. C. Haas, M. E., has returued from  the east where he successfully floated  the Golcouda Mining company. F. P.  Buck, of Sherbrook, Que., arrived here  last week. He is interested in the Gol-  conda company as well as in the several  other mining companies in the district.  Work has been started on the Golconda  under the superintendence of Capt.  Shields.1- 7  The aerial tramway from the Gold  Bug to the railway will be .completed  as soon as-the wire arrives.: Superintendent Sharp has two' car loads of  picked ore awaiting shipment.

Business Transacted at the Regular Meeting  Monday Evening. ,  At the regular meeting of the city  council held Monday evening Mayor  Hardy presided, and Aid. Sutherland,  Cameron and Fisher were present. J.  F. Junkins,1 of the Manufacturers Life  Insurance company, wrote regarding  the sale of additional debentures. R.  B. Kerr, on behalf of W-7 S. Fletcher, '  applied for a license for a theater.  The council decided to grant the license,  leaving the question of the sale of  liquors to the board of commissioners.  J. D... Ronald, of fire engine fame,  wanted to sell one to the city** but his  letter was filed.  Mr. Nicol, of Silver street, was anxious to ascertain what the council intended to do with his building if the  street were widened. He was advised  to consult a lawyer.  Some weeks ago the council called  for sealed tenders for gum boots and  mackinaw coats for the 'firemen.  Tenders were received from several  firms, that of Rendell.& Co. being the  lowest. Instead of awarding the con-'  tract the mayor appointed a committee  to get the best bargain possible. The  appointed committee is Aid. Sutherland, Fisher and Cameron.  A resolution endorses tlie construction of the C. & W. railway through  the city and extending to them ���'such  privileges as to streets and alleyways,  crossings and otherwise as we may by  law be entitled to do," was placed before the council. This gave the mayor  an opportunity to abuse H. T. Wil-  gress, land agent of the C. P. R. Mr.  Wilgress resented the mayor's accusations which provoked an elegant and elo  quent reply. The resolution was turned  over to the tender mercies of the city  solicitor who will report at a special  .neeting of the council this (Friday)  evening.  The carpenters and joiners of Green-,  wood and vicinity met on Thursday,  evening, 19th inst., and effected a permanent organization with the following officers: President, W. Marsh;  vice-president, L. G. Comstock; recording secretary, A. B. Hart; financial  secretary, Alex. McLeod; treasurer,  Robt. Fry, and a roll of 45 members.  Meetings will be held every Thursday  evening,-the Miners' hall being used  as'a temporary headquarters. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  BAR   NONE.

TORONTO,   , ��� ��� ONT,  Gunliffe & A'blett,  AGENTS AT ROSSLAND.  /"Aackay & Walken,  AGENTS AT VANCOUVER.  Advertising: A City.  The question of profitable advertising is occupying the  attention  of  different Boards of Trade.    Recently  the  Victoria Board  of Trade discussed the  matter which lead the Colonist to offer  the  following  very sensible   remarks:  "There  was  some discussion at  the  Board of Trade yesterday as to the best  means  of  advertising  Victoria.    The  subject is a very important one. Doubtless   any   kind of  advertising is good,  provided  it . reaches   the  ponple   who  want to learn about the city.    We are  quite  in   favor  of ' the'proposal that a  a pamphlet descriptive or the-city" and  its many and varied  advantages shrill  be prepared for  the use of the agent-  general   in   London,   but the members  of the   board   will   riot,  we hope, be  offended,  when we say  that they appear  to lose sight of the fundamental  principle which governs successful advertising.    Most  of  them are familiar  with  the great New York papers, and  and know that advertisements appear  on pages where ho one  could   possibly  see them by accident.    ThSy  are seen  onlyby those who look for them.  This  is what ought to be the dominant idea  in advertising, namely, the advertiser  ought to have in mind the people who  ���will be looking for his advertisement,  not   the   chance   customer   who   may  happen to run across his advertisement  or whose attention is  drawn  to  it because it is "top column next to reading  matter."   There is , not   much   use in  advertising snowshoes in a community  where there '��� is never any snow.    The  people  whom  business  men ought to  seek to  reach  by advertisements  are  the people who look into the newspapers for information contained in  advertisements.       One   member   of   the  board said that he would give more for  one editorial than  for three times as  much   advertising;   but   this,   though  complimentary to the editorial,   is  not  sound from a business  point of view.  It is not the advertising of the city as  a whole  that pays, but what the individual advertiser tells  about his own  business.    If the merchants of Victoria  supported  the  papers  as  liberally   as  the merchants  of Seattle support  the  papers printed there,  if the Victoria  papers ' were   enabled   to   print   page  after page of commercial advertising  as those papers do,  this city would be  better known every where than it  now  is, for  the papers  could then afford to  push their circulation  as they cannot  now.    It is very easy to find fault with  the   newspapers,   but do the  men in  charge of other lines of business in  Victoria feel called upon'do business at  a loss?   'They certainly do hot.   Then  why should they expect the newspapers  to do so?  "The best way to advertise a city is  to advertise in its newspapers, not  by  inserting, write-ups  aud circulating a  lot of extra copies, but  by steady  and  continuous: publication   of   abundant  attractive     commercial     advertising.  But there is'much that can   be donein  other ways.    Much  can  be said in the  press and otherwise to  make the city  known.   But we tell the people frankly  that it is a thankless piece of work to  do it in   this city.    The Colonist  has  printed  hundreds of columns of matter   setting   forth  the advantages   of  Victoria, and scores of columns enlarging    upon    the   advantages   and   resources of  Vancouver  Island.     Does  any  one fell  called  upon   to speak a  word of encouragement?    Well,hardly.  Here is a sample of the things that are  said:   There was an editorial reference  a few days ago to a certain mine.   The  only comment that came to the ears of  the Colonist was a remark, made in all  seriousness, that it was wrong for   th*  paper to lend its aid to any man to get  rid of his mining stock.    A  few weeks  ago there was a strong local reference  to some mines on the west coast.   The  only  com ment  this called forth   was  from  a-gentlemen   who   stopped   the  editor on the street and criticized very  severely the policy of permitting wildcat   projects   being   exploited   in   the  press.     And   so   it   goes.     Then   the  Board of Trade meets  and spends  an  hour and a half in  telling the Colonist  that it ought to do this, that and the  other thing."  The timbers for the gallows frame at  the Sunset mine passed through  Greenwood the other day. They came  from Fletcher's saw mill and are the  largest timbers that were ever turned  out in Boundary creek. Fletcher's  mill has supplied a large quantity of  timber to the Sunset and Mr. John's  the superintendent is well pleased with  it. The B. C. Copper company has  also placed a large order.with this  mill. '  NOTICE.

A LARGE PARTY OF RAILWAY MEN  Wake an Official Tour.of Inspection of the New  Railway���President Shaughnessy Speaks  About Boundary Creek���The Gentlemen in  the Party. - .  The  C.  P.  R. officials from the big  sachem   down,  came  and'saw Greenwood and went away  satisfied  that  it  was by   long odds the liveliest, most  enterprising city  and the commercial  and   mining  center of the Boundary  Creek district.  A special train brought  in   a   valuable cargo on   Wednesday  evening^   Had one of Porter Bros', big  trestles given away or a flaw cropped  up in Pat Welch's rock : work, it would  be impossible to imagine what might  have .happened  the  C. P.R., because  on board were nearly all the men   and  brains that so successfully conduct its  enormous   operations.    They took  no  chances,  however, and brought along  with them Tim  Foley, Peter Larsen,  and J. W. Stuart as  sureties that, the  journey would be made in safety.  Included in the party  were   T.   G.  .   Shaughnessy,   president   of the Cari-  ���     adian Pacific Railway company;  Wm.  "Whyte of  Winnipeg, manager of  the  system  ih the west;  L. A. Hamilton,  Winnipeg,the gentleman who strain ht-  ens.out.all   townsite ^difficulties; and  looks after all the C. P. R. lands; H. C.  Cambie, chief engineer of the Western  division;  Geo. McL Brown, executive  agent   for   British    Columbia,   whose  special mission is to pour oil  upon  the  troubled waters  and make every body  pleased with the C. P. R. whether they  want to or not; R.  Marpole, genera!  superintendent of the Western division;  \V.F7 Tye,'chief engineer of the  Columbia and Western;  T.  G. Sullivan,  his assitant; A. C. Dennis,  one  of  his  staff; P.* A. Peterson, chief engineer of  the,���. entire system;  Capt.  Troup, who  runs   the   company's    steamboats: in  Kootenay;'T.   A.    Gutelius,   general  manager.of the Columbia and:Western;  W.. H.-Aldridge, general manager of  the Trail smelter; H. S^ Holt, the well  known/ Montreal   railway' contractor;'  and A. W. Ross, of Columbia.  The -party were met by the G. P. R.  engineers and H. Wilgress at the station and driven to the Clarendon,  where dinnerwas served. Afterwards  they visited the Greenwood club and  met several of the citizens. They returned oh Thursday morning. Mr.  Shaughenessy will visit to- the coast  before returning east.    .  From a newspaper man's standpoint  the only fault that could be found with  the party was its plethora of railway  magnates. Any one of them was  worth a column and advertising space  is so valuable in these prosperous days.  So the Times representative summoned  all the Scotch courage at his command  and tackled the president for copy.  The task vvas not a difficult one.  ome one has aptly said. that the  greatest man in Canada today is Thos.  G. Shaughnessy. If a man's greatness  can.be measured by his power and influence, this statement is not exaggerated. The C. P. R. is Canada's greatest  enterprise and its president and managing director cannot but have the  great .influence. U If Mr. Shaughnessy  were not at the head of the C. P. R. he  would still be a great man. By his  own pluck and ability he rose from an  ordinary railway man to the magnate  that he is today. His rapid progress  in the railway world has not spoilt  him. He is still as affable and courteous as ever, and was quite willing- to  talk to a newspaper man!  " I am well satisfied with my trip,"  said he. "When I thought of the large  amount of money we were spending in  this Boundary Creek country I had  some doubt regarding the wisdom of  venturing so much in a new district,  but after becoming more intimately acquainted with your wonderful resources  I have every confidence that the in vestment by the C. P. R. will eventually  turn out a profitable one. We are  showing our confidence in the district  by building branch lines to all the  cams; something we never did before."  "Have you arrived at any decision,  Mr. Shaughnessy, regarding the extension of the road from Midway westward?"  "No, we will not build for sometime,"  was the reply. "We have already expended nearly five million dollars in  this district and we are anxious secure  some return before building farther.  We have yet considerable money to expend here in the building of more  branch lines."  "And smelters?"  "We will build smelters if necessary,  but it appears to me that the mine-  owners of this district, will be quite  capable  of   handling  their own ores.  Tf such be the  case we will not,engage  in   the  smelting industry.    We do not i  care to build smelters unless forced  to  do so."  "Is there any truth in the rumor that  you in tend to build to Republic?"  "None whatever." "',  Mr. Shaughnessy referred to the  wild, country through which the railway passed and also to the Corbin  charter.  "Why didn't you buy the Corbin  road, Mr. Shaughnessy; too patriotic?"  "Yes, if I do say it myself. Our  policy iri this western country in the  construction of new roads, is to build  up Canadian industries.* If we went  over to the other side we would no  longer.be a Canadian road.'.*:  "You will admit, Mr. Shaughnessy,  that the agitation for, the Corbin road  induced the C. P. R. to build more  promptly?"  "No, we would have built anyway.  I .tell you what it did do. It cost the  C. P. R. $1,000,000. We, would have  secured a $10,000 a mile subsidy had  the Corbin charter riot come up. I  think the people of the district will be  better served by a Canadian railway  than by an American road. We intend  o do everything possible to encourage  the development of your mines. What  we want is tonnage. We want to haul  large quantities of ore and large quantities of supplies into the district.".  The Times representative was prepared, to admit that the C. P.

SMITH CURTIS, ESQ.,       .  Dear Sir,--The Sunset mineral claim  is'a crown granted full sized mineral  location 500 yards square, situated on  Copper mountain in the Similkameen  district of Yale Mining division, and  on the east si<fe of the south fork, of  the Similkameen river. ������   '���.'���'���  *.��� # *.���'.*. *������ The contemplated  route of the C.

GEOLOGY.���The ore is present in a  diorite surrounded for the most part  by gray granite. In the diorite. there  is a mineralized zone passing throughout the whole length of the Sunset  mineral claim, and into those adjoining, reaching, however, its greatest  width in the above-mentioned Sunset,  upon the surface' of which large areas  of copper-stained diorite are -seen, one  of these areas approximating . 10,000  square feet.   -Apparently about 20 acres  REPORT.  of, this claim on the surface is thus and the adjoining properties.

RAILWAY BUILDING.  The completion of the railway to  .Greenwood recalls the many hopes and  disappointments connected with the  construction of a railway into the  Boundary Creek country. There were  many interesting events connected  with the legislation and negotiations  looking towards the building of a  Boundary Creek railway. D. C. Corbin  was among the first to turn his atten-r  tion to Boundary Creek. He and his  associates became interested in mining  claims in Copper camp, and he secured  a charter to build a railway along the  Kettle river and up to Copper camp.'  This charter was allowed to lapse.  Col. Baker and his associates secured  the British Columbia Southern charter.  This gave them the privileg-e of build-  rig a railway from Lethbridge to the  coast. The provincial parliament presented the British Columbia Southern  company with an enormous land grant,  including valuable, coal areas in the  Crow's Nest-Pass. : Col. Baker and his  syndicate succeeded in selling their  rights to the Canadian Pacific Railway , company. They secured a big.  cash subsidy from the i Dominion  government and built the Crow's Nest  road. ���' '-,  In the meantime F. Auguste Heinze  secured a bonus from the provincial  government to build a smelter at Trail.  He also built a railway from Trail to  Rossland and secured a charter from  the provincial government to build to  Penticton. A land grant of 20.000  acres per mile was to bey given on the  completion of this road. : Heinze  haunted the lobby of the provincial  legislature for several sessions. He  apparently could get anything he asked  from . the ��� provincial . government.  An effort was made to secure him a  cash subsidy as- well as a land grant,'  but.the legislature, would, not, consent  to this arid Heinze left Victoria for  Ottawa. Here ���:���.-;he lobbied for a big  cash subsidy, but he was defeated by  rival railway schemers. Dr. Milne, of  Victoria, and others started the Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern project  to build a railway from Victoria to  Lethbridge * through the Boundary  Creek country. They went down to  Ottawa and tried to convince the  government that they and not Heinze  were entitled to put their hands in the  public purse. Heinze tried to buy them  off .and would have succeeded only  Milne never knew his own mind for  twenty-four1 hours. He said he would  and. then he wouldn't. The government became impatient and declared  that no subsidy would be granted that  session.  The C. P. R. then took an'interest in  the situation. This alarmed Heinze  who .endeavored to work up popular  sympathy for himself. While his silver tongued orators were thundering  against the C. P. R., he was in Montreal negotiating with the C. P. R.  officials for the sale of his interests in  British Columbia. He succeeded and  the smelter and railway passed under  the control of the big railway corporation. The C. P. R. company were preparing to renew the request for a big  cash subsidy when D. C. Corbin went  down to Ottawa and stated that if he  were granted a charter, he would build  a railway into the Boundary Creek  country without a cash subsidy or a  land grant. This unusuai and unheard  of proposition so enraged the C. P. R.  officials that they used all their energies in defeating the man who dared to  establish such a foolish precedent in  Canada. Then began the hottest railway fight that was ever waged in  parliament. Corbin was backed by  public opinion, the Grand Trunk and  any influence the American railways  had at Ottawa. The C. P. R. was too  powerful at Ottawa, however, and after  three months of continuous fighting  they carried the day, but not until Sir  Wm. Van Horn had made a solemn  promise to begin the immediate construction of a road to Boundary Creek.  This promise was fulfilled so promptly  that in a little over a year after work  began the railway engine was seen in  Greenwood.  Now that the railway is here most  people will admit that it was built almost as soon as the development of the  district warranted. Still it is impossible to disguise the fact that men of  means were prepared to take chances  in the district and invest their money  in railways. There is no good reason  why they should not have been allowed  to do so; There is too much red tape  about railway legislation in Canada.  It offers a premium to the professional  lobbyist and the* purchaser of votes.  Theman who wants to build a railway  should not be forced to spend six  months and several thousand dollars  down at Ottawa. He should be told to  go ahead and build..  For six years Boundary, Creek was  the plaything of charter-mongers -and  subsidy hunters; They bought and  sold assets voted to them by a vacillating legislature. They used their influence in defeating the legitimate railway builder. ,; Wipe away all the red  tape connected with the securing of  railway charters and the occupation of  tlie charter-mongers is gone.  The Grand Forks Daily Gazette has  made its appearance. Eber C. Smith,  formerly of the Rossland Record, is at  the helm. Mr. Smith is an enterprising newspaper man and Grand Forks  will know he is there while he is there.  The statistical year book for 1898  has been sent us by the Department of  Agriculture, Ottawa.

Orde, of this city,- has just returned  from a trip through the Boundary  country, was enthusiastic yesterday  over the future of Southern British  Columbia. Mr.. Hall came in by the  Crow's Nest Pass line, and will return  via Reveistoke. This is his first visit  to the province, and he predicts a great  future for it. He was impressed with  stability and progressiveness of Rossland, and said that although he had  been continually reading accounts of  the camp in the papers, he was agreeably surprised with what he saw on  his arrival. .Mr. Hall has been making close inquiries concerning real  estate in this city, and the returns that  are being made in investments in Rossland- property., "You are well over  your first booni^" he said, "and have  settled down on a permanent basis.  With.the steady monthly pay roll that  you now, have, and every prospect of it  'continuing to show a healthy increase;  the city certainly has a remarkably  bright future before it, and there; will  be many chances for g-ood paying- investments outside of mining pure and  simple."       .      ���     . :'*������������', .  'Mr. Hall is' a grain grower, and he  stated that the harvest all through  Manitoba this year had been exceptionally-good, both in quantity-and quality.  He had bean instrumental in inducing  the Dominion government to pass the  legislation of last session placing grain  inspection and grading on a new basis,  and he was satisfied that having stationary standard for grain would have  a*.good effect, as merchants who deal  in "futures" will know exactly-what  they" are purchasing in advance. There  hadMaeen a large influx of population  into Manitoba this past year, and the  country was'nllihg up' arid prospering.  "You^'will be sure to get your share of  the money we have been making.
