About seven years have passed since the first prospector  found his way into the pathless country which, now known  as the Boundary Creek district, is rapidly coming into pro-  minence as a mining camp. Great changes have taken  place since those early days of the camp's history. The  date when mineral wras first discovered in Copper camp is  not exactly determinable, but it must have been, judging  from old rotting stakes, several years before any other locations   were   made  in  the  district.     George  Bowman   and  '   George Eayson were, as stated in our last issue, the locators  in 1887 of the ground  now  occupied  by  the  Big  Copper, '  which was re-located by Austin Hammer and John ��� Moran  in the following year.    The King Solomon  is  also  said to  have been found as early as '88, and the  East  Chance and  " Enterprise in '91.  Mr. E- M. McCarren, as far as is known, is practically  the pioneer prospector of Boundary. He still owns his first  location, the Tunnel claim, which was  staked  nearly nine  - years ago on the west side of the creek, about half-a-mile  from Boundary Falls. James Atwood came to the country  in 1S90 and cut the first trail. Besides himself, there were  at that time only two prospectors in the district,���James  Eeman, since dead, and W. T. Smith. Mr. Atwood's first  location was the Mountain Chief, in what is now known as  Smith's Camp. This claim he sold to the Spokane Mining  Co., who worked the property until the ore, which had been  free milling near the surface, at 40 feet turned-, base. The  claim, then abandoned by the company was re-located by  ���'Johnny" Winters in '95,'Mr. Atwood obtaining for a  second time an^interest. As the Boundary Falls it was  sold this yearT The East Chance, the north-west extension  of the Non Such, one of Mr. Smith's early locations, was  staked-by^Mr. Atwood in the same year. Early in '91 he  and Jack Eeman made the first locations in Deadwood camp,  the Copper King and the Exchange, and shortly afterwards,  towards the close of April, the first "rush" commenced.  During that season some of the now best known claims  were discovered: The Mother Eode in Deadwood was  staked by W. McCormick and his partners, and on the 1st  of May the now-promising claims���the Ironsides and the  Knob Hill, were located by Henry White and Mat. Holter ;  a few days later James Atwood and "Jimmy" Schofield  staked the Stemwinder. A number of other claims in  Greenwood, not at present so notable, were located then :  the Brooklyn, Idaho and War Eagle among others. The  Snowshoe was not located ^until nearly two years later,  when it was staked by Bob Denzler, W. W. Gibbs and W.  A. McDonald ; the Monarch and Gold Drop belong to yet  more recent history, the former being located by Humphreys  and Keithley, and the latter by Joe Hito. Henry White  located the two valuable claims in the camp that bears his  name, the Eincoln and the City of Paris, the same spring.  The deposits in Summit camp, too, were discovered in  that year, Messrs. Eefevre, Atwood and Schofield locating  four claims there, called respectively the Anaconda, Drum  Eummon, Brajdiogle and Homestake. Assays were made,  but nothing better than $5 was obtained. In those days $5  rock, even though from the surface, was not worth considering, and the claims, like many others now talked of as  good properties, were abandoned. The Drum Eummon is  now known as the Oro Denaro, owned by Mr. Corbett; the  Brayfogle, as the Mountain Rose, has a more euphonious if  less quaint title ; the Emma, upon which Farrell & Midgeon  of Butte have spent much money in developing, was erstwhile the Anaconda.

The   Skylark,  not  discovered   until  1893, "was  also  found by Mr. Atwood.    It was  located , in^a Mr.   Bloyer's  name, who subsequently , disposed  ofr his  interest to^ Mr.  Douglas.    ��� " r _'"-."  It is gratifying to know that all the  old-time  prospectors  in Boundary who are now living, have  excellent prospects "  of reaping a deservedly rich reward  for ' all  the  hardships  and privations they have gone through.    Men like  " Bob  '  f  Denzler, James Atwood,   Joe  Taylor, George  Rumberger,  Henry White and others, belong to, a  class  of  sturdy pioneers who, by their indomitable pluck and  perseverance  the face of obstacles and difficulties which few would^ dare  to confront, clear the way'for otliers  to  follow.    Their ser  vices are as often as not rarely recognized.  THE   KIMBERLEY   CAMP.  '������"���"���nS#^5SS  The Kimberly camp was only discoverel  this year ' and  is called after the first location made there,   the' Kimberly  claim, staked last May by Bob Murray and George Hender,-  son, up Boundary creek, seven or eight miles above  Greenwood City.   The characteristic ore of this camp is magnetic  iron, carrying  copper   and  g-old  in  small  quantities ; the  iron, which  is  found  in  immense  bodies,   is  supposed  to  " cap " more valuable deposits beneath.    This  supposition ��� "*f.'I^^^^S  has in part been verified by work lately done on ' the   Kim-'   r i^vAhAjsEBja  berly."  After a cross-cut had been made across the  face of  the ledge, about eight feet deep, the character  of  the rock  changed to a rose-tinted quartz, carrying  iron  and  copper  pyrites.    Three weeks ago another large iron capping  was  discovered on the claim.    The east and  west  extensions of  the Kimberly are the Adirondack,   the  Great  Eastern  and  the Old Kentucky.    The surface showing on  these  claims  is similar to that seen on the Kimberly.    On  another large  ledge running north-east > and  south-west  are  located  the  Copper Chief and trie Black Bear, on the latter of which the  assessment work has been done.    A shaft was  sunk, to -a  depth of eight feet, the rock proving very hard and difficult  to drill.    At the foot of the shaft the ore is  solid iron, with  indications of copper.    On a parallel vein  are  the  Eizard  and Homestake.    The assessment has  been  done on  both"  claims,   shafts   being   sunk   in quartz.     Again,   between  Boundary and Bear creeks, are the Iron  Chief, upon which  work is now going on, and the  Golden  Eagle.    The latest  discoveries in this locality, however, made within  the  past  few weeks,   are the Ballard,  owned  by  M.   T.   Robinson,  with its extension on the west, the  Bendigo, located by Mr.  McCarthy on the 7th inst. ; and the  eastern  extension, the  Carlyle, owned by M. E. Miller and  J. P. Kelly.    All these  claims have big iron cappings.    The Ballarat is now being  stripped to find the width of the ledge, which  has  already  been traced 40 feet.    Another parallel ledge was found last  week,  with  quartz  outcroppings,   and   claims  named  the  Marguerite   and  McMurray  located   thereon.     About  the  best looking rock, however, from the Kimberly camp comes  from the Hanover,   on  which  the  ledge,   carrying  a  rich  looking q\iartz, is four feet wide and  lies  between  a  foot-  wall of lime and a "slaty" hanging wall.     Mr. Miller went  up on Wednesday to open up this claim and the Marguerite.  On the same day a number of  prospectors  also  struck  out  for this new and promising neighborhood.

Mr. Galloway put two men to' work  on the San Bernard, Providence camp,  on Tuesday.  Messrs. Hennage and Austin are  now being shown the Eureka property  on the Reservation by Mr. Holbrook.  Messrs.    Shonquest   and   McArthur  left on Thursday to do assessment work  on the Eaura, Robert Emmet and two  .other claims in Eong Eake camp.  Mr. E. S. Graham, owner of the  Texas claim near Midway, and of several other properties in the camp, arrived ��� here on Saturday's stage via  Marcus.  Mr. C. H. Brown began stripping the  the Clifton ledge on Wednesday, and a  shaft will be sunk on the claim when,  the most likely ��� spot is decided. A^  comfortable cabin has been put up. on  the property.  Messrs. F. W. McEaine and Randolph  Stuart, of Midway, were prospecting in  Eong Eake. camp last week. They  returned on1 Sunday, both visibly thinner than when they started, despite the  snipe shooting.  Preparations for the commencement  of work on the Mother Eode, are now.  all satisfactorily made, and sinking  will commence at once. Five men are  now working for the American Exploration Company on the claim.  Accidentally last Sunday, yery pro-  ,r mising indications of a second lead  were discovered on the Maud S., in  Skylark camp. The cropping, which  was covered by a brush pile, proved to  be copper-stained quartz, carrying galena. ...  - The Queen of Sheba,.owned by Tom.  McDonnell, and the Honolulu, by Geo.  Riter, were purchased last week by E.  A. Dig-by. The surface shbwings on  these claims are very promising, the  ore being identical in appearance with  that on the Big Copper.  A remarkable specimen of high-grade  silver ore is on view at Messrs. Miller  Bros', store. It was brought from a  claim en the Reservation by Mr. S.  Welsh. The specimen is a piece of  brilliantly stained copper rock, literally  studded with native silver-     -  Prospectors are fast leaving the  higher altitudes, owing to the severity -  of the weather. At Eong Eake camp  last week the ground was covered with  snow, half-an-inch deep until noon,  while the higher summits will no doubt  be snow-clad from now on until next  spring.  The shaft on the Ironsides is now  down something over 40 feet, and with  every foot of increased depth the fock  has a better appearance. Some magnificent specimens of copper ore are  now to be seen on the dump. The  present contract, it is exj:>ected, will be  completed within seven or eight days'  time. '���','���������.'  Mr. C. E. Thomet's prospecting career very nearly came to a sudden and  abrupt close the other day. While  working in the shaft of the Big Windy  a mass of rock, which -must have  weighed something over a ton and a  half, without warning caved in, some  smaller pieces striking him ��� on the  back. Mr. Thomet's escape from a  certain death was almost providential,  nearly the whole*of the foot of the  .shaft being covered with the fallen  debris.  The Great Hope, located on the  ninth of this month by Harry Nash, is  situated a few yards from the wagon-  road, about a mile on this side of the  Stemwinder camp. The out-cropping  is a, promising-looking- decomposed  quartz. * A tunnel has been started-^oii  the claim, to determine the size of' the  lead.  Mr. E. A. Digb)-, a mining engineer  who has seen service in South Africa,  has been staying- for several days past  with Messrs. Hodgson and Barrett at  Greenwood, and looking at properties.  He left -Boundary on Monday. Mr.  Digby, at one time, acted in the capacity of secretary to Dr. "Jim," of the  Transvaal raid notoriety.  Several representatives of capital  have been looking recently at the Winnipeg, and it is rumored that negotiations are now pending- between the  owne^r, Mr. Mcintosh, and Mr. Hennage, a wealthy Englishman, with a  view to its sale. Mr. W. MacKay, of  Butte, said to be here for Marcus Daly,  also went over the property prepared  to make an offer of purchase.  The contract on the Big Copper was  completed the end of last week. At  the 50-foot level the foot-wall' is very  distinctly defined, but it is rather difficult, though the hanging wall was  found, to distinguish where the vein  ends and the wall begins on the other  side of the vein. Mr. Keffer has put a  gang of nine men to work on the mine  and work will probably continue there  all winter.  The shaft on the No. 7 is now down  about 130 feet, and the representative  here of the American Exploration Co.,  who- hold the - bond on the claim, is  more than satified with the showing.  Though occasionally a "horse" is run  across while sinking, it is impossible  to lose the vein which is in a peculiarly;  characteristic  formation.  and  perfect' geolog-ical  All the water was out of the upper  shaft on the Stemwinder by Wednesday, andj,the other two shafts were  being emptied as rapidly as possible.  In the big shaft there is about a hundred feet of water, and this is being  hoisted out by means of a whym.  Seven men are now being employed at  the mine, but it is thought that this  number will be increased when mining  operations actually commence. Either  Mr. Farrell or Mr. Midgeon are expected to arrive now in the camp at any  time.  NOTICE.  In the Matter of Gus. Hamlin, Deceased.

Graden,,, a nephew of Mr.  Tholl of the Anaconda Hotel, arrived  ,  in Anaconda this week.  Mr, Tillman has! completed the building of his new house, he and his family  moving in a day or so since.  Mr. J. A. Eynch, who.was managing  for some time the Palace Hotel for Mr.  Hardy,1 left last week for Rossland.  " Pat " Hickey is building a house  near Col. Weir's office, and expects  that shortly his family will come to  reside in Anaconda.  Mr. Cronin of Toronto, and Mr.  Pelham of New York, are staying at  the Palace Hotel. Both represent  eastern capital to large amounts.  The force of men who have been for  some time past clearing land near the  main trunk road to the back of ' the  town, have nearly completed the work.  .The clearing has improved the appearance of the town.  Jack Eucy and Harry Morgan returned on Wednesday from a trip to  Rossland. Mr. Eucy says there are  grand showings at Rossland, but that-.  camp will not stand comparison with  Boundary once this country is opened  up and has railwa}' facitities.  The lower storey of Col. Weir's  building- is divided . into three apartments, one���a large and comfortable  room���to be used as" a general, office  , and waiting-room ; the others serve  respectively the purposes of an assay  office 'and chemical laboratory. Mr.  Keffer is now fairly settled in the new  house,-, which he-finds to,f\be far more  conveniently situated, from a business  standpoint, than his former temporary  abode.   ���.-,'��� - ���-  , Some good-looking " float " has been  found at the lower end of the^Bank of  England, a fractional claim,, between  the Rawhide, Monarch and Tamarac.  The ground is owned by James Marshall and Thomas Rhoderick. The  former is now prospecting for a second  ledge which he believes cannot, owing  to the amount of " float " in the vicini-  .ty, be far distant. On the discovery  ledge one assessment has been done,  the ore much resembling Monarch  rock. The fact, however, that the  claim is wedge-shaped, and that the  discovery ledge lies at the apex, makes  the owners "the more eager to discover  a second lead at a wider part on the  property.  W. B. Moore, better known as "Billy"  Moore, is now at Anaconda. I-Ie is an  old-timer among the old-timers in this  .cpuntry;, and was prospecting and  dealing in claims here in 1887. He located in the early days several proper-  ties on Red Mountain which proved to  be the big dividend-paying mines of  Rossland, besides claims in Boundary  now considered to be among the most  promising-. However, he was either'  too poor at the time to pay the assessment and recording fees, or the assay  values were hot' sufficiently high to  warrant���as he thought���development,  the best results that' were obtained  being from $1 to $7 from surface rock.  Mr. Moore says that it was owing to  his instrumentality that Monaghan &  King- first became interested in the  Cariboo at Camp McKinney. He, in  company with George Bowman, George  L,eyson (the first locators in Copper  camp), Georg-e and Ben. Thrasher, and  Fred. Rice cut/the first trail ever made  from Christina lake into Rossland.  Mr. Moore, who now resides at Eoom-  iston, is thinking of building at Anaconda, and of coming- back to the  scenes of his former adventures.  ^/^J*l ~Hg*'    "t^W    "wgkT    -gjbT    ~<jfk^    "kJgtT    "yjw",   ~i��gbr    ~��iW    '*&'  2^4 ���;,  ��*"  *lJPLf  ���JfoSSfrM XXrtJi TTtfJI fXfsAt fX/Jt Prr/tt fffrji Qfrrftpftrsl fTF/ft tSTsSi Qfrrjj Vf//JtVrrJ> &?rlt tfrfjti HftfJ* KWSJOfMisili.  -ana  __. **3  jj Cf IT       5g kxv��W"c  __._   ��� , . _^ .ia '  JSU. fSfM Vffflt ISfrM ttf/Ji Vf/n tf/r/t f3?sJI Vfr/lt VfffJt fSry/i CBSbW Vf/M f!fr/jti Vff/*t ISf/Si f3?sst $f}fJt$frfJt $OrJt ^Sn.  ^���� N   DEALERS   IN   Hardware, Paints and Oils, Sash and Doors.  ^��  ���������  ">l?

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19. 1896.  EDITORIAL, NOTKS.  ���k  The mining industry of the Province  v has developed within the past few years  at so rapid a rate that now, instead of  being regarded as third or fourth in  importance to the agricultural, or second to the lumber or fishing industries,  on it is admittedly based the future  welfare and greatness of British Columbia. Curiously enough, however,  though this is sufficiently recognized,  not only by the people of the.Province  as a whole, but also on the outside, its  significance does not appear to strike  the legislators of the Province as forcibly." We do not make rthis' statement  with the intention of insinuating a lack  of intelligence or perspicacity among  those who otherwise so ably govern the  country; but we maintain it as a curious instance of conservatism in a  western country. The agricultural interests are well looked after ; the lumber trade is fostered ; but somehow or  other the mining industry, which  should receive the greatest attention  and assistance, is left very much out  in the cold.  Why this should be it is difficult to  say. . The provincial revenue is yearly  considerably augmented from taxes  levied on mines and those engaged in  mining. But the fact remains that  while the revenue from mining is proportionately greater than that derived  from any other industry in the Province, the government appropriations  are not made^ih an equally generous  ratio. Granting even that the mining  districts receive governmental aid in  proportion to what they contribute : Is  this the basis upon which the government should calculate ? Assuredly  not. If, as we believe, it is true that  they are not animated with a parsimonious spirit, but the lack of money to  meet the many calls upon the public  purse, is the reason for an apparent  close-fistedness, would it not be better  in every sense for the whole country if  the mining industry were given the  preference ?  While prospectors are compelled to  open up a country unaided, making  their own trails and roads, progress  must necessarily be slow and difficult.  Once the great mining resources���resources that promise to bring incalculable wealth to our western province���  are more or less developed, then it will  be time enough to look after other provincial interests, though, at that date,  the necessity will be less than it is today. And for this reason: All other  industries will reap the benefit of the  prosperity which will follow in the wake  of the establishment of the mining industry of the province on a firm'rjasis.  We therefore call the attention of the  government, and particularly the attention of the Hon. Minister of Mines,  who, we believe, has the welfare of  .mining at heart, to the urgent need of  good roads in this district, trusting that  when once the obvious necessity is understood, active measures will at once  be taken to remedy the existing state  of affairs.

Haas, as vice-president for  this district of the North-wesf Miners'  Association,   is  making-  praiseworthy  efforts to obtain   a  representative  exhibit of ores from   the  different Boundary camps, to  show   at  the   Spokane  Fruit Fair, which is to be held  in  the  early part of  October.    We  regret  to  say that  Mr.   Haas  has  not  received  from some quarters the encourag-ement  which should be shown him ; and that  his motives, which to any   sensible individual nrust appear disinterested, are  attributed to   a  desire  to  further  his  personal  interests.     The  question  is,  are   the   miners   and    prospectors   of  Boundary going to allow this excellent  opportunity of advertising- the country  to pass by ?    The Grand Forks  people  have long- ag-o  recognized   the   importance of   making-   an   exhibit  of  rock  from claims in their  part  of  the  district,   and   a - g-ood  collection  of  ores  from    Summit  camp,   Grand   Prairie,  ^Brown's   camp   and   from   the  North  Fork has already accumulated.    There  is yet a week or ten days left in which  to make a  collection   from  Boundary.  The Times has been asked  to  request  men owning- representative claims   in  any of the surrounding- camps to bringdown to Greenwood 25 or 50  pounds of  sample rock,   where  it  will  be  taken  care of until the time   arrives for shipment.    In all about a ton of  specimen  ore is to be sent.    The Association pay  all   expenses   of   transportation   from  Marcus to Spokane, and a subscription  list will be opened here   to  defray   the  cost of  freighting  from   Boundary   to  the raiLwaj^.

While Midway   is  likely  to  prove a  more suitable central point as the   site  of the  Government  offices   than   until  lately was apparent, owing- to the rich  strikes on James creek and up the West  Fork,   the woik cf the Recorder is still  chiefly derived from  Boundary   Creek  camp  proper ;    and  the   expense   and  loss   of   time   to   prospectors    of   this  neig-hborhood who are oblig-ed, in many  instances, to travel 30 miles   and  over  either to obtain information regarding  claims or  to  record,   is serious.    The  true history   of   how   the  Government  office came to be situated  where  it is,  would prove interesting- reading-.   Was  it the result of a discernment amounting- almost to prophetic instinct on the  part of the official  who   is  responsible  for the selecting- of the site, or did the  special  pleading-  of   the  friends  of   a  townsite company-in no way influence  the choice ?    We   do  not  for  one  moment wish to question the thoroug-h integrity or doubt the honesty of purpose  of our government ag-ent for  this   district.    L/ike Caesar's wife, he is "above  suspicion."     It   is,   however,   possible  for the most honorable of  men  to   act  on the sug-g-estion and advice of  their  friends, without giving- the matter  in  hand that due consideration  which expediency   may   demand.      Meanwhile  the office is at Midwaj7",  and   it  cannot  be expected that the  government will  pull   it  down  to  go   elsewhere.-    The  . question then arises, is there any  possibility of devising a remedy to relieve  the prospector from the necessity  of a  special journey from  his   claim   somewhere in the mountains,   to   Midwajr ?  The only suggestion   that   appears   at  all likely to be effectual is, that a professional man who   has the   authority  to administer oaths or take   affidavits,  should be shown that it  is   to  his   advantage to make   an   abstract,   during  the winter   months,   of   all   claims recorded at Midway, situate in the immediate outlying camps.    With   this   information   at  his   command  he   could  readily collect a small fee in exchange  for his services, and at the   same  time  could, if qualified as we   suggest, take  all the necessar3r   affidavits ��� relative to  locations,   to   the   annual   assessment  work required bj' law, and to the transfer of properties.    If   this   suggestion  is followed out  the   government  office  might be located at Midwa3r, or   at the  North Pole, so far as   the   convenience  of the prospector from  here  would be  concerned.  The Big Six.  The Big Six, adjoining the Gem in  Wellington camp, was located at about  this time last year b}r ''Alec" Wallace.  The assessment work for this season  is recently completed, and has given  results of a very satisf actor}' character.  When the claim was staked, the ledge  was not at once found ; lately, however,  the owner has been working in solid  formation. A shaft has been stmk 11  feet on the vein, and a body of sulphide  ore uncovered. From nearer the surface the following- assay returns were  obtained: copper, 7% per cent., gold,  $3.50, and over an ounce of silver. The  footwall is a schist.  SANSON   &   HOLBROOK.

The Big Four, located recently by  James Steele, Andrew Hanson, Robert  Murray and Joe Kelly, is one of the  most promising of the new strikes on  Boundary Creek. It is "situated about  \y2 miles from Mr. Wallace's ranch,  on the west side of the creek. The discovery was made on a big iron cap, in,  the owners say, a formation of granite  and porphyry. Other claims located  by the same prospectors are the Paragon, south of the Big Four,' on which  are.two ledges, one carrying quartz,  the other covered by an iron .capping ;  the L/Ulu and the Nappa. Considerable work is to be done this winter on  the Big Four.  The Big Windy.  C. Iv. Thomet and Spencer Benner-  'raan returned on Tuesday from doing  assessment work on the Big Windy  and on the Fremont, in Providence  camp. Both claims are looking well.  A new lead was found in the Fremont,  10 inches wide, and a small amount of  work done on it. On the first-discovered vein, which is only from 4 to 6  inches across, very good ore has been  taken out. One assay gave $46 in gold  and 160 ozs. of silver to the ton. Silver  is found in the ,fornr of silver, glance  and is also present in galena. This  year's work is the second assessment  done on the Big Windy, and a shaft  5x7 feet is sunk on the ledge 14 feet.  The ore is pyrrhotite and nearer the  surface went $12 in gold and 21 ozs. in  silver. The vein is from two to four  feet wide.  A Promising Strike.  A 15-foot shaft has already been  sunk on the Arg-o, a claim located on  the 3rd of this month in Skylark camp,  north-east of the Helen. On the surface was found a very small yein of  quartz, which has since widened out  to between three and four feet. No assays have yet been made, but the ore  is very similar in appearance to that  found on the Helen. I^ock in the vicinity runs from $15 in gold and from 40  ounces in silver to the ton. Both the  hanging and foot walls are'clearly defined on the Arg-o, and a streak of solid  .galena over 15 inches wide runs near  the hanging- -wall, while ori the foot-  wall the quartz is heavily impregnated  with copper.       .

Owing to the failure on the part of  our Midway correspondent to send this  week, as had,been arranged, a copy of  the records from the Government office  there, we are reluctantly obliged to go  to press, leaving their publication for  the next issue of The Times. We  offer very sincere regrets to prospectors, to whom this weekly information  is particularly interesting reading.  The omission shall not occur a second  time.   CARELESSNESS OF POST-MASTERS.  Complaints anent the carelessness of  - post-masters in this district, are becoming altogether too common ; and it  is deplorably true that postal business  is treated in a most casual manner.  Letters are frequently not delivered  to their owners until several days   per-  - haps, after their arrival at the post-  office, and newspapers in many cases  never reach the person to whom they  are addressed. The reason is not difficult to find :. The postmaster is, as a  rule, a local store-keeper or business,  man ; his time is very much taken up-  with the details of his own affairs and  he cannot, and does not, devote that  attention which should be absolutely  required   of  a  public  official  holding  . such a position. But the Government,  : not the official, is really to blame. The  local post-master, as things now exist,  is rather a public benefactor than a  paid official; he undertakes his' arduous duties, not for   the   miserable  pit-  ' tance he receives from theodepartment,;  but to accommodate his fellow-townsmen." Under these circumstances criticisms of his shortcomings iose their  point. The Government protests that  the postal service does not pay, hence  the parsimonious manner in which its  servants are treated. One reason why  the service does not pay is because so  much mail matter is carried free. No  charge is made on newspapers! sent  from publishers to subscribers. This  is no doubt an excellent provision, and  to it is attributable the large number  of new^spapers circulated throughout  the country ; but if it is the cause of  making the delivery system '' rotten,''  the sooner publishers are taxed the  better the general public will be pleased. Apropos, we would, particularly  remind the post-masters of this district  that newspapers not called for, by the  persons to whom they are addressed,  should be returned to the office of publication. .  THE SKYLARK WHYM.  On Thursday the whym. being operated at the Skylark broke down, owing  to a flaw in the casting- of the crownwheel. Upon investigation a " maggot " hole, 3 inches long by 1% inches  wide, was found in the rim of a wheel-  cog. The machine has been in use for  the last five years, and was considered  to be in perfect order, no flaw being  previously noticeable. It was, however, after the break occurred, seen  that the casting had evidentry been  faulty when it left the factory, as was  evidenced by a drill-hole in the broken  ��rGEEEfrWr<0OD CITY, B,C  G.

"To  Mr. De Gray," Spokane proved even  more attractive than Greenwood, and  he .succeeded there in making something; like $7,000 out of the poor pigeons  whose feathers he was an adept at  plucking. Should. Mr. De Gray ever  contemplate a second visit,to this district we can promise him a war,m and,  hearty reception,;, especially at the  Greenwood opera house. ,:  .MINING NOTES.

Mr. W. J. Baker, foreman on the  Skylark claim, asks us to correct a  statement appearing in the last issue  of The: Times with regard to the ownership of the claim^ which was g-iven  as the property of the Lexington Mining Co. The Skylark is , personally  owned and is now being operated by  Mr. C. C. Reuger, of Butte. The fact  that Mr. Reug-er is general manager  of the Lexington Company may have  led to the mistake.
