 ��*'  ' V,  A Weekly Paper published in the interests ot the-Boundary Creek Mining District,  Vol, L  GREENWOOD CITY, B.G, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1896,  No. 1,  vwmrnrmmm  PASS   CREEK.  r/2  < Pass,Creek is situated  about  14   miles  from  Greenwood  City, in. a north-easterly direction.    It  is  reached  by  two  trails': one by way of Ivong L/ake,camp, the other, only cut  out this summer,' by I^holt creek. ' To  the  south  of  it  is  Summit Camp, with Ivong^lake to the west  and  the  North  Fork of Kettle river to the east.   This time last year no one  had heard of Pass creek, that is, as a locality where mineral  deposits of exceptional size and value lay.   It has, however,  " been for some time known to-surveyors   as  the   alternative  '.pass for a railroad, the other being by Brown's and Eholt's  creeks.     Those; therefore, owning claims in the neighborhood will at any rate be very near at hand to   any  railroad  that may be constructed through the district.    Another advantage is' a magnificent  water-power,   which   can and no  i  doubt will.be utilized should anyj matting or smelting plant  ' be,-erected there at a future date. One of the first prospectors in;Pass creek was Mr.' R. Robinson, who staked in his  own and his partner's (Mr. Nelson) name, the Golden Giant  and the Northern Belle. These claims adjoin each other  and lie on the south side of the creek, and the ground is  probably among the most promising of ,any located this  year. Mr. Robinson has done considerable work on his  claims. Ori the Golden Giant in particular, a tunnel has  alread3r been run 33 feet,,which will be continued next spring-  until the width of the ledge is proved,���su;pposed to be about  .25Jfeejt^_rom^openiiigS'which have been made in four different places. The capping is chiefly "an arsenical iron, car-  r'yingg-old and copper, with a feldspar gangue, assays from  mere croppings giving 3 per cent, copper and $5.00 gold.  When it is remembered that the L,e Roi at Rossland, and  other now valuable mines there, only returned 40 to 60 cents  on the surface, this result cannot be considered anything-  but hig-hly satisfactory. Mr. Robinson came down on Monday from the camp, bringing a number of samples, all of  which he has shipped away. These samples were obtained  from a blast made on Saturday, and show the more valuable  rock found beneath the capping.  On the same ledg-e to the east is the Side Hill Star, owned  by Al. Clifford, upon which an open cut has been made.  ' Another extension, the No. 3, owned by Messrs. Smith and  ^strops, is now being developed. At the least calculation  this ledge can be traced for three miles, and claims have  been staked for the entire distance. The ground on the west  to Ivong- I^ake camp has also been all staked this season,  the noticeable feature of the locations being the arsenical  'iron capping- which is characteristic of claims in the locality. More work would have been done by prospectors in  Pass creek camp this year if Government aid had been  given them" to cut out trails. As it is, much time that would  have been spent in development has been taken up in thus  opening- up the country.  [ ^DCr^ ���.���'; . -  '  THE   BIG   COPPER.  It is expected that in the course of the next day or two  the contractor, Mr. George McCartney, will have.completed  his task of sinking a 50-foot shaft and running a drift of 75  feet on the Big Copper. On Tuesdary, when a representative of this paper visited the mine, the tunnel had been run  in 68 feet, leaving only seven feet to be driven, and the men  expect to strike the hanging wall every day. They are now  in some 26 feet on the vein, and while of course the assay  returns are kept a profound secret by Mr. Keffer, the manager of the company holding the bond, it is generally understood' that the value of the ore has increased. The drift  is run in a north-westerly direction from  the  foot of the  shaft, and before the vein was struck the drilling was /  through very hard, close-grained lime, consequently the-,  work did not proceed as rapidly as at present. In appearance the ore now being taken out is ^not dissimilar to .that  found on, the surface, though perhaps it carries more sulphides. It is comparatively soft and easy to work, and from  a measurement one of the miners (Jim Fauld) made recently  it took two weeks to go through 17^ feet of it. There can  be no doubt, from what can be learned, that the company  will take up the bond and continue to develope the property  this winter.  To those who have lived in this district any length of  time, the history of the Copper is more or less familiar ; to  outside readers, however, a few facts relative to the mine  may prove interesting :  The Copper is said to have been located as early as 1880,  but this fact cannot be vouched for.    The history of the   '  claim really commenced in 1888, when part of the  ground  now occupied was staked by two prospectors, Georg-e' Bowman and George L,ayson, as the Blue Bird.    The  necessary  assessment work not being done, the title lapsed,  and Austin Hamer and John Moran then staked the Copper,  which  took in about half oif the Blue Bird ;' after representing it  for five years they obtained a crown grant.    The claim was  bonded last spring to Col. J. Weir, of the  American  Metal  Co., for $30,000.    The time limit specified in the bond will  shortly expire, and whether the bonders will be sufficiently  satisfied with the result shown by development work, remains to be seen.    Miners who have examined the claim recently think that the company will be hard to please if they  are not satisfied.    The showing is really marvellous, and  while it is the aim of The Times to refrain from anything  resembling exaggerated reports, it is   impossible  not to be  enthusiastic when describing the Copper.    The great ledge  .which, at the 50-foot level, has been proved to be nearly 30  feet wide, the distance it can be traced,   and  the  average  value of the ore, make the Copper a prospect with few equals  and fewer superiors in promise on the continent. IDven now,  with the ore in sight, the monetary value of the claim must  be considerable ; but if the vein continues to go down, to  use a comparison made by a well-known  Boundary   Creek  .  prospector, which expresses the general hopeful feeling of  the camp, " the Copper will make the Anaconda take a back  seat."    The ore is brown hematite,  with copper oxide and  copper glance disseminated,  with  a  quartz   gangue.    The  hanging wall is a bird's-eye porphyry,  and the  foot-wall a  lime, with _ also _ porphyrinic, granite and amygdaloid.    On  the surface   where  crosscuts  have  been  made in several  places, the width of the ledge; is  estimated  to  be  50  feet.  Assays made from surface rock averaged between 5 and 10  per cent, copper, though very much better values were obtained.      A    story    is  told   in  connection with  the  bond  on the Copper, for the truth of which, however, The Times  will not be held responsible,  though the facts are not improbable : It was at an early stage,  after the contract was  let, rumored that the American Metal Co. were dissatisfied  with their bargain.    A  mining  expert  then   in  the camp,  working for an English syndicate,  saw the property, and  hearing the report at once offered the company a sum of  $5,000 down, and further agreed to pay all expenses then incurred if the company would drop the bond and  allow him  to make terms with the owners for the claim.    Needless to  say the offer was courteously, but none the^ less decidedly,  refused.  ''Bill" Austin and "Steve " Welsh are now working on  the Jumbo, through which the same lead found on the Big  Copper, can be traced. Upon the completion of this season's  work the owners will be entitled to a Crown Grant.  J,itJtiitf^iw��v��apwi��<m��mmiji^��.i'im^Mw THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  /���  ==>��>%  V  THE WEEK 2N ANACONDA.  Messrs. Leslie Hill and A.   N.   Pelly  left here this week for Rossland.  ���   Mr.  Tillman   is   building-   a   larg-e-  roomed and   comfortable   cottag-e   not  far from the saw-mill.  Mr. J. P. McL,eod, from New Westminster, barrister and solicitor, has  opened an office at Anaconda.  Mr. F. J. Miller, of the Anaconda  Mercantile Company, has completed  the building- of, and is now living- in,  his new house.  ��� Mr. B. EX Gedney, of New Jersey,  who has made several investments  here, left for New York a few days  ago. He is expected back in a week or  so.  Great improvements are being- made  to the Palace Hotel.* Among- dther  thing-s a handsome verandah is being-  built, and an apparatus for heating- the  rooms with hot air is being- put in  position. .';..,      ,  Mr. Casby is completing- and fitting-  up the building- recently occupied^ by  the Graham restaurant. The store is  to be used hereafter as; a stationery  and fruit stand.  Mr. F. Keffer and family moved, this  week, into the larg-e and comfortable  building- erected by Col. Weir. The  lower storey will be used for the offices  of the Company.  A sonorous calarm bell has been hung-  in front of the hardware store. The  bell will only be rung- when any dan-  g-er threatens the town, and- will thus  warn the inhabitants if a fire breaks  out, or if a parson visits the place. /  Mr. Pelham, representing- a French  syndicate, who, till recently, made  Anaconda his headqtiar ter s, is expected  back from Rosslaiid to-day (Saturday).  His reports on the mines of this district have, so far, been decidedly favorable.-  The following- were among- the registered g-uests at the Palace Hotel for  the week : E. Costello, G. B. McAuley,  C. Chamberlain, Spokane ; G. Gleason,  ��� San Francisco ; T. Brady, Butte ; J. G.  Whitacre, W. Iv. Steward, Toronto ;  and C. D. Fraser,.Portland.  The doctor's services were called into requisition on Friday to repair the  damag-es, which had been sustained by  several of the more prominent citizens  of the town on the evening- previous,  in an exciting- conflict with a wood-  rat. Of those who took part in the  hunt, two have lost fing-ers and a third  is lame. It required six strong- men to  kill the rat; the strug-g-le lasted two  hours and twenty-six minutes. The  animal weig-hed, minus two. front  teeth and part of its tail, six pounds  and a quarter. In its short but happ}r  life it had lived at the expense of the  Anaconda Mercantile Company.  DISTRICT NEWS.  Mr. C. A. R. Ivambly is in the district, assessing- the value of taxable  property for next year's collection.  Mr. G. B. McAulej'-, secretary of the  Cariboo mine, is offering- a further reward of $1,500 for the return of the  g-old bricks, of which he was robbed on  the 18th tilt. There is also a reward  of $2,000 for the apprehension and conviction of the robber.  Mr. G. B. McAuley, of Spokane, and  Mr. C. Chamberlain, receiver for the  Central Railway, passed throug-h Anaconda on Thursday, returning- from a  visit to Camp McKinney. Mr. Chamberlain was   greatly   taken   with   the  country, and sig-nified his intention of  making- a second and a longer visit  shortly.  Work is in progress on the Golden  Crown in Welling-ton camp, in the shape  of a cross-cut across the ledg-e.  Mr. Hawtrey, some time of Trout  Creek, has received the appointment  of constable in place of Mr. Cuppag-e,  who is appointed Inspector of roads  and bridg-es. Mr. Hawtrey is learning-  his duties at Midway, meanwhile Mr.  Deans looks after the work at Osoyoos.  Mr. Monag-han, of the Cariboo mine,  contemplates adding- live additional  stamps to the mill, making- 15 in all.  It would require little expense to make  the addition, the boiler being- larg-e  enoug-h to supply the extra power. It  is rather strang-e that the capacity of  the mill has not been increased longer e this.  There is a local feeling- that the appointment of Mr. Sproat to the stipendiary   mag-istracy   of   Kootenay   and  - T 1        11  Kettle River extends over too larg-e a  territory, and that it is impossible for  him to do justice to such a iarg-e district. A petition to the Government is  meantime being- freely sig-nediby Boundary Creek voters, with the [object of  nominating- a local man to the position.  The Midway Townsite Co. /are " getting- a move on," and it^ is ^'certainly  about time that'they did." An irrig-a-,  tion and water-works system, it is understood, is to be commenced, if not  completed this fall. Mrl Stuart, the-  ag-ent, expects to g-o to Montreal shortly and on his return will probably be  accompanied by the trustee, Capt.  Adams. Several lots have been sold  within the past week or so.

The  newly-opened trail has been blocked  by fallen and burning- timber, and the  only trail .now available is by-way of  Ivong- lake���a long- distance round. The  fires will, however, serve one g-ood purpose, by clearing- away, the thick underbrush, and it is probable that several g-ood finds that might have laid  undiscovered for some time, will be  made this fall.     ^  The Greenwood Camp Road. !���_,  The men working- on the Greenwood  Camp road moved camp on -Monday to  the Winnipeg-, whence they will open  up the road in this direction. The  grade as far as the Stemwinder is now  complete and is in every particular an  excellent example of road-making-,���  both Mr. Wood, who is "financing the  undertaking-, and the road g"ang- themselves, are to be congratulated upon  the result. The new road will not onlj'-  be a safer and more easily travelled  route thnn the main hig-hway now in  use, but to stag-e drivers and teamsters  it offers the great advantag-e of a saving- in distance of about a mile and a  half. Those . who' were oblig-ed last  '3reRr to travel over the ill-defined and  roug-h trail whi-h then led to Skylark  and Green wood.camps, will the better  be able to appreciate the beneficial  effe:t of Mr. Wood's enterprise.  The Combination.  Mr. C. I��. Bartholomew, one of the  old-timers in the camp and the original  locator of the Providence, is now working- on the Combination, a claim recently stocked for $600,000. A hundred  pounds of rock, sampled from the 'edge  of this claim, was recently sent to Spokane, where it went through the process, known as "bucking it." This is  a technical expression for dividing several pounds of sampled rock into a  small parcel, for assay purposes, so as  to ensure the proportional valuation  remaining the same. This is effected  by placing the sample, after it has been  well shaken up, on a large open sheet,  and shaking it like a sieve ; the ore is  then divided into four quarters, one of  these undergoing the same process and  another division,-and so on until the  required amount is obtained. The returns from the Combination assays  were: Iyead, 30 3-10 per cent., value  $18.12 ; silver, 512 8-10 ozs,, value at 68  cents (the price at that time), $348.70 ;  gold, 3.20 ozs., value $66.15 ; total value  per ton, $432.97. This is a very satisfactory showing, but Mr. Bartholomew  says that owing to a rich strike within,,  the last few days, the assays will probably run much higher. The strike was  ,made at a depth of 35 feet in the shaft.  ~M.r. Bartholomews brought in some of  the rock on Tuesday, and if there is  much of the same kind the stock-holders will have very little cause to regret  their investments.

HARBER      ��� ��� ��� ��� ��� ������ ��� MANAGER  Subscription, $2.00 per Year, in Advance.  SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13. 1896.  THE "TIMES" AND ITS POLICY.  No more favorable   opportunity will,  we   think, occur in   which   to   define,  once and for all the aim and policy   of  The Boundary  Creek Times,   than,  simultaneously with the publication of  the first issue.   "We-'do  not,   therefore,  hesitate to approach the subject, knowing- that it is the first and last occasion  upon which allusion will be necessary.  The future   of   Boundary   creek   is  dependent entirely on  the  outcome  of  the mining- development which   at  the  present time  lias   barely   passed   the  first stag-es.    Meanwhile, it is  frankly  admitted that the future of the district  Vis  yet to be  permanently  assured   by  the incontestable  evidence  which  the  presence   of   shipping-   and   dividend-  paying- mines alone can   supply.    The  prospects, however,   are  so  eminently  promising-, and  the   indications   of   a  rapid transition from  the   embryo   to  the-more advanced   condition   so   certainly marked, that a  g-eneral  feeling-  of confidence and security   is   common  - to all classes.    It is, therefore, for   the  ��� influence it may bring- to bear throug-h  ���the publication of reliable reports   and  , news of the camp, in inducing- moneyed  '."men   to   visit   with     the     consequent  probabilit/y of their investing-.here ;  in  hastening the progress of that development which is ultimately to  make   the  name of Boundary   creek   notable   as  being-, possibly the   greatest,    at   any  rate among- the greatest  of  the  g-old-  copper producing- centres on the   continent ; by endeavoring- to expose, should  occasion arise, to the best of our ability  ���and here we ask the   co-operation  of  all who have the true   interest   of   the  country at. heart���any   scheme   where  the " wild-cat" element can be proved ;  that this paper hopes to win a place   in  the public estimation.    We do   not,  ,nf  course, expect to conscientiously follow  the line here briefly  sketched  without  making- enemies, this is inevitable ; on  the other hand, we hope, more  we  expect, to g-.ain freinds   in  every quarter  where a love of rig-ht-dealing-,  or even  where    the   true   spirit   of   business,  exists ; and with the , support   and   approval of this latter class, we have  no  fear of the issue.  Politically, The Times will maintain  an independent attitude, while confess  ing- to, however, a strong- predilection  for free-trade doctrines, or at least,  a freer trade, particularly in our  business relationship with the United  States. There can be no doubt that  had trade with our southern neig-hbors  been less restricted in the past, the  mining- industry of British Columbia,  and it is to the mining- industry almost  r  entirely that the province miist depend  for its future prosperity, had, we repeat, mining- men from the other_si.de-  received the encourag-ement conimen-  surate with the energ-y and enterprise  they have exhibited while operating- in  British Columbia, the mining- industry  would have been advanced by many  stag-es beyond its present condition.

There are> in Greenwood and  Anaconda, at least, between twenty-  five and thirty "children ,of school age;  The saw-mills of Anaconda and  Greenwood have amalgamated, henceforward lumber will notice obtainable  ex-ept on /the principle of "cash  down." "The credit system, while it  offers, perhaps, certain advantages to  the impecunious, is on the whole harmful. If trade can be conducted on a  cash basis, so much the better for  everybody concerned. It is -onty a  question of time when every business  in the country will endeavor to follow  the lead set by the saw-mills, and when  once the first inconveniences of tre  change wear off, the advantages will  be recognized.  The Rev. H. Irwin, of the Anglican  Church at Rossland, held divine services both at Greenwood and Midway  on Sunday last. The service at Midway took place in the morning, about  50 people being present; at Greenwood  in the evening- the congregation numbered between 80 and 90���an attendance  that might well do credit to an older  community. 'Mr. Irwin is very and deservedly popular, particularly among  the miners and . prospectors in the  neighborhood.     He  is    admittedly an  ���.-'earnest and'sincere worker, as is evidenced by his self-imposed task of a  walk of something like 120 miles in or-  ', der to give the people the benefitof .the  church service.  Some little while ago "Tom" McDonnell, at the expense of considerable  time and trouble, got up a petition to  the L/ands.ahd Works department of  the provincial- government, prajdng  for an appropriation for the construction of a road from Greenwood up  Fvholt creek and through Summit camp  to connect with the main trunk road  leading to the North Fork. To this  petition he managed to secure nearly  all the signatures of people living in  the vicinity to whom the road would  benefit. The petition was then sent  to Grand Forks to be signed by residents there. Nothing, however, has  since been heard or seen of it. The  petition therefore comes under the  category of articles " I^ost, Stolen or  Strayed." Any information that will  throw light on the mystery, will be  gratefully acknowledg-ed.  Tt  ..

Word has been received from Mr. W.  T. Smith that work is shortly to recommence on the Stemwinder.  "Tom" McDonnell started assessment work on the Queen of Sheba,  Copper camp, on Tuesday. He located  the claim last winter.  Buildings are being put up--on the  Mother, JL^ode, in preparation for work  which is to begin at once. The cook  arrived in camp on Tuesday.  Mr. W. C. Brown, of Spokane, went  up on Monday to the Clifton in Copper  camp, where he intends to build a  cabin, and work on the claim this  winter.  The M. & B.C. Prospecting and Promoting Co. stopped work  on the Gold  Drop tunnel on the 1st inst.   The leclg-e  ' is now being prospected with the diamond drill.  C. J. McArthur, a partner of Fred.  Shonquist, came in this week from  Butte, Mont. He is a part owner in  several valuable claims, notably the  Denaro Grande.  "Johnnie" Stevens left Anaconda  on Sunday for Fairview. It is understood that his departure was hastened  by the news of the sale of the Joe Dandy to a Vancouver syndicate. ��  The contractors are making rapid  headway on the Ironsides' shaft. On  Monday they had reached a depth of  39 feet. The ore at that level is much  richer in appearance than it was  nearer the surface.  Mr. Hennage and Mr. Austin, the  latter a mining- expert and both Englishmen, came, in on Monday from  Rossland, via Grand Forks. They intend going through the camp with a  view to investing here.  Mr. W. T. Smith was expected to  leave Spokane for Boundary on Wednesday, to superintend the work on the  Stemwinder. .Three men went up to  the claim this week, and will empty  the water out of the shaft.  James Smith and James IDstrops left  last week for Pass creek. They will  stay there during the winter, and work  on the No. 3. There is an immense  iron-capping on the claim. The No. 3  is an extension of the Side Hill Star  from which good ore has been taken.  Nearly all the water in the Skylark  shaft had been emptied but .last Sunday and work was to commence the following day. The I/exirigtbn Mining  Co., of Butte, who own the property, is  a strong syndicate and will spare no  expense to give tl2e'.'Skylark, the position it should occupy among valuable  shipping mines.  Among* the more important transfers  for the month, the sale of a half inter-  est in Denaro Grande "and of a three-  eights interest in the Jewel, both claims  in Iybrig" Ivake camp, command conspicuous places. The properties were purchased by Mr. ^Leslie Hill, the New  York expert, representing Messrs. K.  Mahon & McFarland, of Vancouver.  P. W. Peterson and W. C. Archer  came down from Iyong L,ake camp this  week, where they have been working  all summer on a group of claims they  located last spring,���the Atlanta, Independence, Iron Hill, and a fractional  claim the Union Jack. All the claims,  which are said to be looking first-rate,  have the same character of rock on the  surface as is found on Pass creek.  Messrs. Peterson and Archer left for  Rossland on Wednesday.  in  the  neighborhood,  Mr. C. Collins, owner of the  C.O.D.  Ivong  L/ake   camp,   has  purchased  both"'the Amanda and  Abduer  in  the  same camp,  for S3,500.    The Amanda  is an extension of the  Alice and  is  a  promising property.    Besides carrying  usual   mineral   common   to   that  the   Amanda   ledge  is  rich in silver tellurides.  10. A. Bielenberg has been and still-  is working on the Surprise, Skylark  camp, and on the Kootenay, in Dead-  wood. To use his own words, the Surprise is " badly shook up." Mr. Bielenberg, however, expects to g-et into a  more solid formation shortly. The  Kootenay looks very well; there is a  large body of sulphide ore, capped with  pyritic iron.  On the Rambler claim, about a mile  south of Pass creek, recently stocked  by the Kverett & Spokane Mining Co.,  considerable work is to be done this  winter. The claim was located by C.  Frank and E). J. Davis, who ran a number of cuts on the ledge, the estimated  width of which is 30 feet on the surface. The lead is traceable for 800  feet. A cabin has been built on the  Rambler, and a gang of six or seven  men will be put on ; a 100-foot shaft  is to be sunk in the first instance. ���  A promising find was made last week  by " Jim " Dale on the west fork of  Kettle river. The claim, which is called the Carmie, has a quartz ledge running through it over four feet wide and  traceable for 2,000 feet. The quartz is  mineralized with iron pyrites, galena  and zinc blende. A number of assays  have been made of sampled rock, the'  returns being very much above the  average of the usual valuation of grass-  root croppings. The Carmie is likely  to prove a valuable mine.  Mr. W. A. Corbett has been workin.or  for some time past on the Iyake claim,  near the lyast Chance, in Sklark camp.  A ten-foot hole has been made in a big-  iron capping, without, however, discovering solid mineral. On. Saturday last-���  Mr. Corbett struck a streak of promising quartz o n the hanging wall. He  has now decided to abandon this working for the present and commenced  Monday to open up' a parallel lead  which is supposed to run through the  Ivast Chance ground, and is more promising in appearance.'  The latest strike was made on Saturday and Sunday last, when a number of claims were staked up the west  side of Boundary creek, on i/ost creek.  The ore, or rather the capping, is hematite and iron pyrites. The ledge,  which it is said can be traced for a distance covered by three claims, is reported to be 40 feet wide. This discovery verifies the statement that the  country is hardly walked over, much  less thoroug-hly prospected. It is very  probable that the best finds in Boundary Creek district are yet to be made.  The I^exing-ton and Silver Bowl, situate about a mile west of the Golden  Giant, in Pass creek, have the same  big- surface showing of arsenical iron.  They were, located this summer by Mr.  D. H. Harrington, a well-known prospector from Butte. . Ivittle development  has yet been done, but more would  have been accomplished but for the  bush fires which drove so many prospectors out of the hills before the season's work was completed. Before  leaving the camp Mr. Harrington will  visit several of the older properties and  will try to influence Montana mining  men in Boundary. He returns next  spring to work on his claims.  ts  e=?  �� Greenwood,' B.C.  iTTTi'TrraTirs.ia.Trig��ap-rarera3jama3;cr-rim^  Office, Store, and Saloon Fixtures a specialty  v  K  Plans and Specifications made and Eslimates  ���given.'

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  jMWJWiiMMtfw���u m mmu iwiwww  wiblw u jmw naimiwm VJwjiwjgyaB  MR.   GRAHAM   IN   BOUNDARY.  Mr. Donald Graham, M.P.P., visited  the district last week,  and. on   Fr day,  . in company with Mr. R.oWood, wen   to  Greenwood camp and saw the  wonderful showing- now to be se-'o. in the God  Drop trine.    Soe king-  of  tKs  exp. r-  ierice Mr. Graham  rem irked:   "I  am  not a mining- man aiid my opinion can  therefore r.ot carry much  weight; but  I think  anyone,  however  ignorant of  mining matters,  wo:ld  be   impressed  with the"sight of the Gold Drop.    The  fact that for the  entire  distance   it is  driven   across   the  ledg-e  the  rock   is  richly mineralized, and that  both  the  foot and hang-ing- walls are   so  plainly  defined, should, I imagine, be^sufficient  evidence to any man  of  the  v,alue  of  the.claim and the  prospect  before it."  Discussing-  Mr.  Hwinze's  project   and  the land grant to the .company with regard to its effect on the. owners of mineral claims, Mr. Graham said : " I have  heard a good deal about  the  hardship  involved in the payment which a claim  owner will be required to make, of $5.00  per acre, to purchase the surface rights  - on claims located on the company's reserved, land.    Now I think the  matter  is  really  over-estimated.    The  clause .  in the Act  was   especially   inserted in -  order to protect the prospector   and   to  prevent   the   railway   company   from  charging,    as   other   companies   have  done under similar circumstances, exorbitantly.    In the majority, of. cases  \   you will either find that when the time  arrives "for "these "payments per acre to  be made, that the prospector has either'  abandoned his claim���for  nessarily a  proportion will be valueless���or he has  sold it to a syndicate  amply  able   and  willing to  pay  the  extra  amount; or  that \>y that time the prospector, if his  claim is valuable, will  not  grudge the  outlay, which he can always add to the  price  of  his  cairn.1'    Prom  the  land  . grant itself, Mr.  Graham thougiit, the  company would,  as a  matter, of  fact,  realize a very insignificant sum, much'  of the land being unfit for any purpose.  The reason advanced by  Mr.   Heinze,  which carried considerable weight with  the Provincial House when, the   application was-made,   was  that  he  would  have-far more likelihood of the  bonds  for the. road being floated, with a grant  >   of some kind to give substance  to  the  scheme, than without one.   Mr. Heinze  had not the money himself, to build the  ���   road, but there was every chance of his  being able  to raise  the money.    The  Government   ri^ht y   considered   that  a  road  which  would  help  to  convert  local trade into local channels and tend  to check the flow of Provincial money  into the States, was a project deserving  every encouragement, hence the grant  was made.  "Mr. Graham's visit is primarily for  the purpose of learning the most urgent of the requirements of the people  .in this part of his constituency. With  the information and the knowledge he  will receive from personal observation,  he hopes to give more forcible expression in the house to the requisition he  will make for an.increase in the appropriations for this section.  <4|* ^* m* <&$(& <swi <sw��  SANSON .&   110LBROOK,  F/  Groups of Claims bougM for Stock Companies and Syndicates  -o-  OFFICE     AT     GREENWOOD     OITY.  &}  ^  UIHMUIIMIWU'M'"*���1""'-.!  *�� G*  *  w  Penticton Hotel,  J.
