Vol, L  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1896,  No, 8,  MR. GRAVES ON THE FUTURE OF BOUNDARY.  Mr. Jay P. Graves, a well-known mining- man and a larg-e  shareholder in several Rossland mining- companies visited  Boundary last week. On his return to Spokane he was  interviewed and his impressions regarding the possibilities  of this country published by the Spokesman-Review as  follows :  In g-oing-in,".said Mr.   Graves, "I  went  throug-h  that  portion of White's camp south of the boundary line and  visited the mines being- operated by the Reservation Mining  and Milling- Company and found the3r were dping considerable work in.developing their properties: They have'run a  tunnel 100 feet, a crosscut 40 feet to the rig-lit and another  20 feet to the left. The ore is of g-ood quality with a fair  percentage of copper. The company are about to sink a  100-foot shaft and will run .another tunnel. Other g-ood  claims are being- worked in that vicinity.  " After looking- over these properties I went across the  line to White's camp and visited the City of Paris and  Lincoln mines. These claims were" recently sold to ,Mr.  Heneag-e, who will continue work on them all winter. The  ore is high grade with a g-ood percentag-e of gray copper.  In the same vicinity is the No. 7 and Jack of Spades. Work  on these claims is g-oing- steadily forward. ��  " In the Greenwood camp there are a larg-e number of  men at work. There is an excellent road from Grand Forks  to Greenwood,���smooth enough to ride a bicycle over. This  road runs through Wellington and Greenwood camps. The  Stem wider people are doing considerable work. They have  sunk a shaft 70 feet, run a drift SO feet and have sunk a  winze 40 feet. They are about to start a tunnel to. connect  with the shaft. Two more shafts will be sunk, 50 and 75  feet respectively. There is 400 to 600 tons of sorted ore on  the dump, which will run from $20 to $40 a ton.  " Work is progressing on the Old Ironsides, which at  present is developed by a shaft 50 feet deep and an open cut  100 feet. The ore is of the character as that in the Brooklyn  and Stemwinder. V  The Knob Hill is developed by an open cut for 75 feet and  15 feet deep.. The War Eagle has an excellent showing,  and is developed by a 30-foot shaft and several open cuts.  The Snowshoe owners are preparing-"to work air winter,  and will erect shaft and bunk houses and put in a whim.  " While at Greenwood I met Mr. Buck, a mining engineer,  and T. J. Lendrum, formerly mining recorder at Ainsworth,  R. J. Bealy,,of Rossland, and Mr. Mills, a mining engineer  from Denver. They visited the Brooklyn, Stemwinder,  Iroiisides^ancl Knob Hill.. They said that the Knob Hill,  Stemwinder and Ironsides h aye the largest surface showings of anything they have yet seen./ Mr. Bealy is figuring  on putting in a bank at Greenwood or Midway. The stages  going into that country are loaded and a large number of  mining men are going in. Everyone seems more than  pleased with the showing in the district."  "Mr. Graves, \vhat is your personal opinion of the camp  as a whole ?" was asked.  " My judgment is that it will in the course of another  year be a larg-er camp than Trail creek, and I believe that  there will be more men working there. The ledges are  remarkable. The district has a greater variety of mineral  than any camp I have visited."  A PROSPECTOR'S SMELTER ON MEYERS CREEK.  A small smelter with a daily capacity of 10 tons is being  operated on Meyer's creek, some 11 miles to the south-east  of Rock creek.    The proprietor of the plant is a  prospector  named, William Clark, who owns several claims in the  vicinity. His ore is said to run $150 to the ton for all  values: The preliminary tests proved entirel}-- successful.  Charcoal is used as fuel, and as there is little, if any, sulphur in the ores treated, a proportion of one pound of  charcoal is required to three pounds of ore. Clark himself  drew the designs for his little smelter, which was manufactured at Yakima, Washington. It is estimated that the  cost of such a plant delivered at Marcus would not exceed,  $450.  CONTRACT   LET   ON   OLD   IRONSIDES.  . The new buildings, including a shaft-house and boarding  and bunk houses, erected by the Old Ironsides Mining  Company were completed this week, anci the contract to  sink the present 50-foot shaft to a depth of 100 feet, also a  contract to crosscut the lead has been -let to Messrs. G.  Rumberger and J. Marshall. It is evidently the intention  of the Old Ironsides Company, who, it is understood, hold  the bond on the Knob Hill, to determine the value of the  Knob Hill by developing the Old Ironsides���both properties  being on the same lead and the showing and ore. on each  claim being almost identical. A whim is expected to arrive shortly.  BOUNDARY  MINES   COMPANY'S  PROPERTIES.  There is no longer'room to doubt that the No. 7 will not  be a valuable mine. The ore is improving every week with  the progress of development, and would at the present time  ���pa.y well to concentrate. At the bottom of the 140-foot shaft  a drift has been run following the footwall for 45 feet. The  ore is very hard and very brittle,���a fine g-rained galena  with iron pyrites. The management is exceedingly pleased  with the showing.  The Mother Lode is turning out remarkably well. From  actual measurement it is estimated that the ledge cannot be  much less than 200 feet in width. The tunnel has now been  driven in ^rather over 70 feet, of which 25 feet is through  solid ore.    The men make" on an average 2 feet a dziy.  ���.',.', ���;.:.���������'';-v"?v   .."'���.;   :^^^  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   M.   &   M.   CO.  A company known as the Boundary Creek Mining- and  Milling Company has recently been incorporated to develop  a group of eight claims owned by the company in Providence camp. The properties are all situated within a short  distance of Greenwood Cit3', in fact one of the claims adjoins or rather lies above the town on a ridge to the west.  The amount of development work done shows the properties  advantageously, and some of the showings are remarkably  promising-. The ledges run in width from six inches to 25  feet and assays have been obtained as hig-h as $170 in gold  from the average samples of one claim. Apart from the  locality, which is most favorable towards ultimate transportation of the ores, there are several excellent tunnel  sites on the properties, and the conditions are such that  operations can be continued at any time during the winter  months���even surface prospecting-. It is expected that a  number of men will at once be put to work and that development will be commenced on a large scale.  TO DEVELOP THE BONITA.  The owners of the Bonita mine, on Obssrvation mountain  near Grand Forks, have appropriated $4,000 to be expended  in the development of the property during the winter. THE   BOU ND A R Y   CREEK   TIM E S,  MINING NOTES.  Mr. A. P> Mills, mining- eng-ineer of  Denver, Col., is visiting- the camp.  Messrs. Fisher and Dnford finished  last week the season's assessment on  the Dr. Jim, in Skylark camp. The  ledge is about two feet wide, of decomposed quartz, with galena.  Mr. Buck, recently employed as engineer and assayer by the company  operating the Slocan Star mine, has  been sent in to report on Boundary  creek properties by Eastern capitalists. Mr. Buck went up to the Rawhide and Snowshoe on Monday.  The site for the new tunnel on the-  Stemwinder was surveyed last week  by Mr. F. M. Kerby. An open cut  will first be made for 35 feet, and for  the tunnel to connect with the crossr  cut at the foot of the shaft it will be  necessary to drive 100 feet. The work  will take some two months to complete.  Geo. Guess and Spencer Bennerman  returned this week from prospecting  up the "West Fork of Kettle river. They  made no new finds but say that Jim  Dale's claim, the Carmi, and J. Kerr's  Butcher Boy, are proving- with development to be exceptionally promising  prospects;  Chas. Dietz has bonded the Sailor  Boy in Camp McKinney, north-east of  the Anarchist claim, to Mr. Fraser, of  Toronto, and Messrs. Haywood arid  Towers, of Vancouver. Development  work is to be started immediately on  the property. The same parties ai*e  negotiating with Messrs. H. Nicholson  and Edward James for the purchase of  the Old England.  Five or six men are to be put to work  at once on the R. Bell, in Summit  camp, and development will doubtless  be carried on contiuously. The R.  Bell is one of four claims owned by  the Keoug-h Gold & Copper Mining- Co.  The claim has a wonderful showing of  high grade ore, averaging- 20 to 25 per  cent, in copper to the ton, with g-ood  values in gold and silver. This, together with the fact that the company  is stocked at a comparatively modest  figure, should make the shares well  worth the price now being- asked.

A dancing- class has been started at  Midway under the auspices of Mr.  Mcintosh.    7  Mr. Kerby commenced this week the  survey of the irrigation ditch for the  Midway Townsite Company.  Mr. McCarren, of Boundary Falls,  has laid off a plot of ground on the hill  above the townsite for use as a ceme-  The site is in every way suitable.  W. J. Armstrong & Co. have completed the work of fitting up a, plant  for heating the Boundary hotel at Midway by means of hot air. The result  is entirely satisfactory.  Houses are being put up iri the residential part of the town of Midway by  Messrs. Rickards, Boone and McLean  respectively, and several other building are in course of construction.  Eour lots at the corners of probable  business streets were sold last week in  Midway to a party of business men  from Seattle, under building- conditions. Improvements have to be put  on each lot to the value of $700 within  twelve months from date of sale.  Mr. R. G. Sidley, J.P., the pioneer  of Anarchist mountain and one of the  "most indefatigable rustlers in the  country, spent last Tuesday in Greenwood. Mr. Sidley is a welcome visitor  in a newspaper office, as, from, his extensive acquaintance' and knowledge  of the country, he is always loaded up  with information which he is willing  to impart. ��   v  Mr. "Fletcher, post-office inspector,  was in the district this week and established a post-office at Anaconda and a  money-order office at Greenwood^ Mr.  Fletcher recommended, with reg-ard to .  an exchange registration service, between Boundary Creek arid Washington, that a petition should be circulated  - for sig-natures and sent to the department at Ottawa ; at the same time Mr.  Bostock's services should be enlisted.  This suggestion will be adopted. Speaking of the projected Vancouver-Ross-  land railway, Mr. Fletcher said he was  positively assured that the scheme  would be consummated. The people  on the coast now fully recognised that  strenuous effort was necessary to secure the trade of Yale and Kootenay,  and that they would raise the capital  for the construction.of the road in any  case.' .  A subscriber in Victoria writes The  Times for information reg-arding- the  Uncle claim, which we are in a position  to give as follows : The Uncle claim,is  ���.'situated in Long Lake camp, Boundary  Creek district, and was located on July  25th, 1895, by Otto Dillier. A half-interest was transferred to R. H. DeGrey  ���a notorious deadbeat���on the 18th of  May, 1896. DeGrey bonded his half-  interest to Herbert Cuthbert on July  27th, the payment to be made in three  instalments, viz., July 27th and October 1st of this year, and January 1st,  1897. We have no information as to  whether the terms of the bond have  been fulfilled ; enquir}-- on this point  should be made at Herbert Cttthbert's  office in Victoria. An extended description of the claim will be g-iven in a  future issue of this paper.  ONE Small Heating- Stove ;   one Rochester  Radiatoiy, new ;" two  Sacks  Wheat  (for  chicken feed).

It is ;to be hoped that next session  the Provincial Government will introduce a special act to g-ive Yale and  Kootenay fairer representation iri the  House. The development of the mining- industry, and the consequent rapid  increase of the population in the min-  centres, the larg-e area now comprising-  an electoral .division   in   the   Interior,  "���'���'',��� r    ��� ��� .  all make such a step not only desirable  but iriiperative.    The present 'member.  for   the   East   Riding-'  of   Yale,    Mr.  Graham, has ftilly  demonstrated  that  the respect and reg-ard inspired by  his  many sterling- qualities,   his  integrity  and his reputed zeal in the public  service; which placed him at the   head  of  the polls at the  last  g-eneral election,  was not undeservedly  bestowed.    His  efforts in the interests of his   constituents have by  no  means   been   barren  of beneficial result, though either   natural   modesty   or   perhaps,   a   limited  acquaintance     with     the     customary  methods of self-advertising- adopted by  a proportion   of  provincial  politicians  has doubtless saved him from that  ostentatious   display  which,   like   froth  crowning- freshly poured beer, adds  so  greatly to appearances.    At  the same  ; time Mr. Graham is   avowedly   not   a  mining- man;   he   knows   nothing-   of  mining-, and has, therefore, to fall back  on, at the best,   second-hand   information upon which to base his opinion or  influence his vote when leg-islation   affecting- mining- is   broug-ht  before  the  House.  Both in proportion to area and population, as compared with other electoral  districts, East Yale was entitled to two  representatives at the time of the last  Re-distribution Act, and would have  been allowed two but for the opposition  of the Island members who feared to  add to the voting-power of the Mainland. At that time Cariboo.was given  one member for every 228 electors;  Cassiar, one for 206; East and West  Ivillooet, one for 190 and 124 respectively ; while East Yale was g-iven one  representative only for a voting- population of 1,022. How much our electoral  strength has increased since then may  be inferred from the rapid growth of  the several towns and settlements in  ���the southern part of the district.  The East riding-  of  Yale  should  be  divided into two electoral  districts���a  North-east   and    South-east    riding-���  with a  boundary  extending"  east  and  west from Penticton as the line of  demarcation.   Under these conditions the  mining- interests of the southern riding-  in which would be included the   Simil-  ., kameen,   Fairview,   Anarchist  mountain,   McKinney,   Osoyoos,   Boundary  creek and Kettle river camps, would be  represented by  a  member  thoroug-hly  conversant   with  the  prevailing-  conditions  and prepared  to  intelligently  deal with the problems as the arise   in  reg-ard to the development of the country.    Such a  representative,   we  venture to say,   would  not  be  difficult  to  find.    Until thus  represented   at Victoria, it cannot be  expected  that  the7  requirements of the district in the way  of roads and public institutions will be  urg-ed upon the  government  with  the  force and persistency that exigency demands.    A great deal now depends upon  bringing-  Boundary   Creek   prominently   into  notice.    Once   the  public  beg-in to realize the wonderful mineral  resources of  the  district,   capital will*  rush to invest and rival railway  companies will  compete  for  traffic.    The  representations  of    a    local   member,  would do much towards������ convincing the  outside world of the desirability   of   at  least further mvestisratino-* the truth of  current reports.    Arid from   investigation nothing is to be feared. .,  Bt*��MO>-9*a>^'*9*~9-*9>-9'*9>J9-<9>-9-49��-9-*��>^S<9>-9<��l>^*9*-9<9>-9*  For Occupation or Speculation.

[We are in no .way responsible for the opinions  of our correspondents.;)  THE PENTICTON ROAD.  To the Editor, Boundary Creek Times :  Sir,���You had occasion to remark in  a previous issue on the  lack  of   enterprise exhibited by the British   Columbia  farmers as contrasted   with   that  shown by those   living  on   " the other  side.    While agreeing in part with the  opinions expressed, it must be admitted  that there is a side of  the  question   to  which,   attention   was  not  sufficiently  drawn, if at all.    I refer to the state of  the road between Greenwood and Penticton and its  attendant  difficulties to  the  freighter  as   compared   with , the  road to Marcus.    The 90*miles between  Greenwood and Penticton are traversed  , 03-*" a narrow winding-  trail,   called  by  imaginative;' courtesj'-   a  road !      The  monotony of the way is broken   at all  too frequent intervals   by   boulders  of  every imaginable shape,   size   and  description, while the outside  wheels  of  the heavily laden   freight  wagon   are,  for-the major part of the distance, sunk ,  to the hub in: soft yielding-   sand.    The  long grade up, the* Inkameep  sand-hill ��  is   now   almost  impassible  for  heavy  loads ; a   freigliter   with   a  four-horse  team recently spent almost   the   entire  day on that part of the road,   covering  about five miles.  Further, owing to the narrowness of  the road, it is no uncommon thing for  a much-enduring teamster to find one  of his wheels slipping over a precipice,  and to make confusion worse confounded the road is too narrow for him to  swing-, his' team so as to get the wheel  back ; his only resource is to take off  his leaders and hitch them on- behindr  and if the grade of the road will not  permit of this, he has to wait for some  friendly freighter to assist him out of  his dilemma. This '..mishap frequent]}*-  occurs and is practicalh-- unavoidable.  There have been several accidents on  the road this year, and it is a tribute  to the nerve and skill of our freighters  that they have hot been far more numerous. The road was naturally abominable in the spring, from the melting  of the show, but owing to the amount  of traffic that has passed over it this  slimmer it is now in many respects in-  finitelv worse.  government  government  Why  is   this ?    It  is   a  road,   and   what  are  the  doing?    Are  the   manufacturers   and  wholesale dealers  of  Canada  so prosperous that they can afford   to   let   the  rapidly expanding trade of the'mining-,  districts  of  Bouiidai-y  go   out  of the  country ?    This section is  developing-,  and will develop, by its own   inherent  resources, but is that any  reason   why  the   industrial   portions    of    Canada  should not be allowed  to  share   in   its  prosperity ?   The meagre freight sheds  at   Penticton   are    overflowing    with  freight   awaiting   transportation,   but  freig-hters on the road are too few   and  the mass is being- but slowiy diminished.    There are   several   idle   teams   in  this neighborhood, but the tedious and  arduous   character   of  the  journey   is  such that many freighters   after   niak-,  ing a trial trip say, " there is   nothing  in it."    I understand that two or three  men have at last been put   to  work removing a few of the boulders, but that  is  not  enough.    The   road   should   be  thoroughly overhauled, and at once, if  indeed it would not be cheaper to build  an entirely new one.  On   the  other  hand   the  road  from  Marcus is in fairly good condition, that  portion from here to Edwards' ferry  being- especially excellent. Can one  wonder, then, that our farmers do not  care to risk a breakdown on a tedious  trial trip to an uncertain market and  that some of our local merchants prefer prompt delivery from " the other  side ������'���'��� to the endless delays on goods  brought in via Penticton ?

The  ceremony  was held in the school-room,   whither  a number of friends and acquaintances  had g-athered and awaited  the  arrival  of the contracting-  parties  with   more  or  less  impatience..   , The  bride  was  attended by Miss Ida Birnie,. sister  of  the groom ; Mr. Lewis Hind  fulfilling-  the onerous duties of best  man.    Rev.  Thos. Paton, Presbyterian,minister, of  Grand Forks, officiated and gave, a few  kindly words of  advice  to  the  young  "couple.     After  receiving-  hearty  congratulations from the friends present,  the party repaired to the hotel parlors,  where a quiet evening-was  spent prior  to the re.turn to Anaconda.  Mr. " Ives. " Birnie is the junior  member of the 'firm of W. J. Armstrong-  & Co., hardware merchants, of Ana- .  conda and Vernon, and is too well and  favorably known, to need introduction.

A great deal depends upon the report  of Col. Weir, who is now in Chicago  consulting with the leading members  of the company, Judge Shope and H. I  Treat.    Supt. Neils  L,arson  left  here  on Wednesday to be present at the  meeting of the board. The result will  either mean the employment of not less  than 40" miners for the winter* or the  mine will lie idle till spring. ',.���������  The English & French Company, of  which Hay & McCallum are the leading  ',. factors, are going ahead with work on  the Bonanza and Bonaparte claims  with good results. A recent strike of  fine mineral in the Bonanza has considerably encouraged the company to  do extensive development this winter.  The property is located about a mile  south of the Volcanic and in the same  mineral belt.  Frank Griffin, of Grand Forks, and  Wm. Derkinson, of Spokane, will start  winter's work on Monday on the'Bonanza group of mines; two miles north  of the Pathfinder. This group was recently incorporated into a company  "through the agency of Hay & McCallum, mining brokers, who are starting  work on their own responsibility by  the sinking of a 50-foot shaft from the  present 25-foot shaft, when a drift will  toe run on the vein.  A party of Salt lyake mining men  went up from here last Monday to start  work for the, winter on the Oro Denero  property in Summit camp. They intend working eight miners all winter.  Seattle parties have been here recently making arrangements to start  work on the Boulevarde group of mines  located six miles up, the North Fork.  This property was recently located and  satisfactorily opened by H. B. Cannon  of this city.  Considerable prospect work is going  on in the hills surrounding town and a  continual roar of blasts is heard from  all directions during the day. Some  good low grade prospects are being  opened and several, small deals have  been made. '  There are many rumors of railroads  the last of which is that D. C.

The deceased contracted the illness which terminated so  fatally while oh a- visit to Vernon.  Upon liis return, about two weeks ago,  alarming symptoms showed themselves, and Dr. Jakes diagnosed the  case to be typhoid "fever, complicated  by a severe attack of pneumonia., In  spite of every effort to check the* progress of the diseases���with careful  nursing and medical attention���the  patient never rallied and on Sunday  morning rapidly became weaker until  the end came. The funeral took place  at Boundary Falls , on Tuesday, when  a large number of peox3le f rom all parts  of the district gathered to show a last  respect for deceased. The Carson lodge  of Odd-fellows (of which order Atkinson was a member) 'attended to the  number of 15 or 20, and their impressive funeral service was read by Chaplain P. B. Nelson ; many brethren of  the same order from' Greenwood also  assisted.  Thomas Atkinson was a native of  Lancashire, England, and came to the  Boundary Creek country in the spring  of 1891. After prospecting for a few  months he left the district, not returning until last year, when he went into  partnership with Messrs. Lind, Humphreys, and others. Personally he was  a popular man though of a somewhat  reserved disposition. He was aged  about 35 years at the . time of his decease, and so far as known has no relatives in this country. /  A DISGRACEFUL  AFFAIR.  Thos. Featherstone, proprietor of the  Osoyoos hotel, was brought before Mr.  R. L. Cawston, J.P., last week, charged  with obstructing an officer in the execution of his duty. Accused offered no  defence but asked that the case be adjourned until he could obtain counsel.  He was committed for trial, but given  his liberty on finding bail for $500.  The information was laid by Mr. C.  A. R. Lambly who deposed to the effect  that one night last week he heard the  sound as of revolver shots being fired  in the Osoyoos hotel. Entering the,  room, he told Featherstone the shooting must be stopped and order kept, at  the same time demanding the revolver.  A   man  named  Armstrong  admitted  firing the shots and made use of abusive language. Constable Hawtrey was  then ordered to arrest Armstrong,  but Featherstone would not allow him  to be arrested, claiming that the afrair  took place in his house. Featherstone  also refused to g-ive up his revolver,  and a struggle then took place inwhich  Mr. Lambly was thrown down violently and Dan Leggatt (who went to his  assistance) was ��� bitten on the cheek.  Eventually Armstrong was arrested,  but after being in custody for a few  hours was released. Mr. Lambly confiscated Featherstone's license.  Featherstone's explanation, given  out of court is to the effect that " they  were merely having a jollification "  when Mr. Lambly came in and said he  would take his license away. He admits pulling Mr. Lambly over the bar,  but denies that he was thrown'down.

A cabin has been built on the Big-  Four in Kimberly camp, and development work is to be started next week  on the claim.  A coroner's jury sat ot Camp McKinney on Wednesday of this week to  enquire into the causes .which resulted  in the death of a man called Matthew  Rhoderick.  Joseph   Keane,   foreman   in  employ  of the,Cariboo Mining- Company, testified that he had been instructed by the  police authorities to  be  on  the watch  for  Rhoderick,  who  was suspected of  having-been connected with the  highway robbery in Aug-ust last when Mr.  G. B. McAuley was " held up " and relieved of  g-old   bricks   valued   in   the  neighborhood of $10,000.    He (witness)  had   been told to  detain Rhoderick if  necessary.    On the day that Rhoderick  came   by   his   death   information   had  .been received that the suspected highwayman was in   the  vicinity,   and  he  (witness) accompanied by another  employee of the Company named Graham  left  together to discover  Rhoderipk's  whereabouts.   They suddenly came upon their man walking along the  road.  Graham   immediately    hid    behind   a  ��� stump, but he (witness)  had: not. time  to do so.    He called out " Is  that  you,;  Mat ?" when Roderick raised the Winchester rifle he was carrying and point-,  ed it at witness who immediately fired  his   revolver,���npticing   by  the  flash"  that Rhoderick's  rifle  was pointed directly for his breast-���instantly killing  Rhoderick.    The witness evidently felt  very keenly the position   in   which   he  was so unfortunately placed.  After other witnesses had been heard  the jury brought in a verdict of "justifiable homicide," exonerating Keane  from all blame. The jury was composed of : H. Nicholson (foreman), J. At-  wood, W. H. Blick, A. Cosens, Geo. M.  Bennet, V. R. Swanson. Dr. Jakes, of  Greenwood, coroner for this district,  presided.  / ��� . . .  CAMP   McKINNEY   NOTES.
