The frequent distribution of handsome dividends among the shareholders who are mostly local people, has  proved a potent factor in attracting  the attention of outside investors.  ManY working bonds have been acquired during the pnst two months and  several other important deals are pending. Prices have recently shown a  marked tendency to advance. The  Greenwood high grade belt is believed  to extend from Midway to Long Lake  camp, a distance of fourteen miles with  a width of about two miles east and  west from the east bank of Boundary  creek. This belief is based on the  rich surface assays, similarity of formation and occurrence of true fissure  quartz veins throughout this otherwise  well defined territory. The centre of  the belt, where the most work has been  done, occupies a section extending one  mile in each direction north and south  of town. As a matter of fact two  dividend payers, the Providence and  Elkhorn, are actually within the city  limits. They are situate in what is  generally described as the north belt,  whose southern limit is Twin creek,  which wends its noisy course down the  steep hillside and lind an outlet in  Boundary creek in the centre of the  city" Silver constitutes at least ninety  percent, of the values in the north  belt. South of Twin creek and occupying a region paralleling the south  end of the corporation limits is located  the south belt where the values in gold  very largely predominate. The ore,  generally speaking, is of richerquality  than that of its northern neighbor,  easily averaging $150 per ton. The  occurence of high values in the vicinity of Greenwood is no new discovery.  Several of the properties which are  now on a paying- basis made profitable  ' shipments sixty miles by wagon road  many years ago. Owing.to the^wide-  spread attention to the vast but low  grade gold copper deposits consequent  upon the extension of railway facilities the very existence of the rich  quartz lodes seems to have been forgotten for nearly half a decade. The  success achieved by local syndicates in  re^deinbnstratirfg 'the 'possiiailities'of  the small but high grade leads seems  to have amazed the citizens of a town  whose population shifts and renews  itself with the characteristic frequency  of the average mining camp. Now a  new era of development which promises to assume widespread proportions has set in. There are scores of  meritorious properties that only wait  the application of capital to become  rich producers. The remarkable results accomplished by the Providence  and Elkhorn in becoming dividend  payers from the very outset of operations and their ability to pay all working charges aud costs~ of mining  equipment form a bright chapter of  successful mining of which the camp  may well feel proud.  The ore in the Greenwood belt occurs  in a quartz gangue and is composed of  galena, zinc, blend, autimonial silver,  arsenical iron, iron pyrites and patches  of sulphurets. The veins have a general trend north and south and vary in  width from ten inches to two feet.  They have a uniform dip to the east.  The country rock on cither wall is a  pyrroclastic greenstone overlying a  granite formation.  THE providence:  The revival of activity in the high  grade belt dates from September, 1902,  when Duncan Mcintosh, a pioneer  mining operator of the Boundary, organized a local syndicate for the purpose of acquiring and developing the  Providence mine, at that time a mere  "prospect" with the reputation of having made a number of shipments of  high grade ore to outside smelters  prior to the advent of the railway. In  accordance with the the terms of the  working bond, covering a period of  nine months, "Wm. Fowler, the owner  was paid 25 per cent down on account  of the purchase price of $50,000. Two  weeks later the syndicate disposed  of  a quarter interest in the bond to Mark  F. Madden, a well known Chicago  capitalist. At that period the workings consisted of two shafts fifty and i  sixty feet, respectively, and a forty  foot drift. Steps were then taken to  transfer the bond to an incorporated  company with a capilal stock of $200,-  000 in shares of the par value of $5  each. Mr. Mcintosh lost no time in  demonstrating the possibilities of the  Providence. He took charge of the  mining operations and still retains the  position of superintendent. The Providence virtually proved to be a paying proposition '-from the grass roots".  Inside of nine months the property had  been paid for, fifty per cent of the purchase price having been derived from  the profits on ore shipments. Iu addition the mine has borne all costs of  development and mining equipment,  besides contributing $11,000 in dividends to the shareholders. It will be  seen that the mine has alread}- paid  about seventy-five per cent on the original investment. Nor does this complete the marvellous record. The  Providence has $200,000 worth of ore in  sight, has a bank balance of $15,000,  over $20,000 worth of ore in transit and  twenty-five per cent of unallotted  stock or 10,000 shares still remain in  the treasury.  The vein is a true fissure and outcrops on the surface the full length of  the claim. In width it varies from  four inches to two feet. The average  width is ten inches with a tendency to  widen perceptibly and to improve in  value at depth. Mr. Mcintosh had  plain sailing after solving the broblem  of a fault at the forty foot level. The  trend of the ledge is northeast and  southwest with a dip to the east. The  development work accomplished by the  company comprises over 1900 feet. The  main workings consist of an incline  shaft 290 feet deep following the dip of  the vein. To facilitate the extraction  of ore levels were driven from each  side of the shaft at depths of 50, 130,  150 and 290 feet respectively. Raises  connect the three first named levels.  Altogether a great deal of ground has  been opened up and the estimate of  the ore iu sight being valued at $200,-  000, may be regarded as conservative.  The Providence ships'aTra.vefage of'90  tons of ore monthly to the C. P. R.  smelter at Trail. The va'.ues are in  silver and gold in the order named.  The average net values of last year's  shipments, over freight and treatment,  were S106 net per ton. Although the  ore is becoming more uniform in  character at depth some exceptionally  high grade pay shutes were encountered. One 22 ton shipment made a few  months ago netted $5,400 or an average  of over $240 per ton. An exceptionally rich specimen ran $41,000 per ton.  The Providence has other rich and  untouched assets. A lead parallel to  and 300 feet from the vein now being  developed, extends across the claim  and can be traced on the surface. An  assay from the quartz croppings ran  200 oz. silver and $6 gold per ton. With  the-furtherextension of this main incline shaft on number one vein this  undeveloped lead will be encountered  at depth. The Elkhorn lead, it has  been proven, also extends into Providence ground. Il has been traced to a  point seventy feet from the Providence  line and no doubt will be located with  the expenditure of a trilling amount in  removing the heavy "wash" which  covers the surface at the boundary line  separating the two properties.  The Providence employs thirty men  working in two shafts. It is equipped  with a boiler, blower and hoist, all of  which were paid for out of profits. An  electrically driven skip and compressor  will be installed at an early date.  These proposed improvements will cost  $7,000.  THE  ELKHORN.  The Elkhorn mine, ranking next in  importance to the Providence, has  given additional proof of tlie richness  and uniformity of ��he ledges in the  north belt. It is a f .ill sized claim adjoining the Providence on the west.  It is only one mile from the centre of  the city and is actually located within  the corporation limits. The lead on  the surface is scarcely wider than a  knife blade. This was the seemingly  uncertain "clue" ' which persistently  followed by Phil McDonald and James  Sutherland of Greenwood, the present  owners, has won them fortunes. A  working bond for eighteen months was  secured in December 1902 from Charles  Thomet of Midway, the former owner.  At a depth of fifty feet the vein assumed a width of about ten inches and  contained the first profitable pay  values. The first carload shipments  netted $112 per ton, less freight and  treatment charges. Messrs. McDonald and Sutherland after providing for  all operating expenses paid for the  property out of the profits within a  year, and for the past six months have  been dividing the monthly dividends.  This is regarded as a remarkable  achievement in view of the fact that  the owners only invested $500 as working capilal which was refunded from  the profits derived from the first shipment.  An incline shaft sunk on the lead  has attained a depth of 152 feet. There  are drifts at the 80 and ISO foot levels  from which stopes have been carried  upward. The vein runs northwest  with a dip to the east. It averages  from ten to twelve inches in width but  in several places widens out to two  feet. Its dip is very regular throughout. The values are mainly in silver.  Some specimens were found to contain  50 per cent native silver. The highest  returns in gold from car load lots was  one of $39.20. Shipments to date exceed 600 tons averaging about $100 per  ton. The amount of ore in sight is  estimated to have a value of $100,000.  Ore shipments average 60 tons monthly. The values are improving at  depth. The owners contemplate installing a boiler, pump and compressor  at an early date. The shaft is to be  sunk au additional depth of 100 feet,  thus almost doubling the amount of  stoping ground.  Another lead traversing this property  north and south has been traced by the  outcrop for a distance of 600 feet. It  yielded an assay on the surface of $104  per ton. This vein passes within 300  feet.,of_ithe_.iiicline.shaft,���aidrift���from^  which will tap it at depth.  A small fraction lying between the  Elkhorn and Providence is being de-  velped by Messrs. McDonald, McKenzie and Sam Stingley. An incline  shaft has been sunk on the lead to a  distance of seventy feet. Although no  shipments have yet been made the ore  is said to run high. The vein is the  same lead that has been opened up on  the Elkhorn.  THE E. P. U.  The E. P. U. group, another high  grade wonder, is located in the south  belt on a hill, 3,000 feet directly east of  town. It comprises the E. Pluribus  Unun, the Lancashire fraction and the  Majorie. When this bond was acquired two years ago by D. H. McVicar  and other local people the prospect was  not any too encouraging. The best  assay from a 22 inch quartz outcrop on  the surface was $1.60 per ton. At a  depth of 25 feet ou the lead an incline  shaft encountered ore which averaged  $54 per ton in gold and silver. The  working was extended to the depth of  65 feet whence drifts were run north  aud south and the ground above stoped  out. A drift was also run from an  adit on the lode lapping this shaft and  gaining a depth of 85 feet. All ore is  now i -ing stoped from this level. It is  .proposed to run additional levels from  aa.'i on the vein at different points to  connect with the present workings.  The mine ships from 80 ton 100 tons  oi ore monthly. The values in gold  and silver carry from S^0 to $125 per  ton. Picked samples of tellurides rati  as high as 153 oz. grold and 185 oz. silver per ton.  The local syndicate has long since  paid for the group out of profits and is  now receiving substantial dividends.  The mine has also borne all costs of  development besides providing an  aerial   tramway for the-delivery of ore  Continued on page 8. BOUNDARY   OREEK   TIMES.

In August, 1898, a little less than 6  years ago, the writer first saw tlie  Boundary. He travelled from Marcus  over the stage road, along the beautiful Kettle river, through Grand Forks,  where Phoenix now stands, through  Greenwood and Anaconda and thence  to Midway. The country was bursting  with expectations, but there was Utile  else to mark the way. unless dust be  counted. At present the visitor from  outside points lias the choice of two  railway routes into the Boundary. He  can go from Marcus to Rossland by  the Great Northern and theuce by the  Canadian Pacific Railway to nil points  in the Boundary. Or if he choose he  can take the short route aud in less  than three hours ride by the Great  Northern into the Boundary. Six  years ago Grand Porks was a beautiful but tired looking spot. Now it has  one of the finest smelting plants on the  continent there, while hundreds of  acres of its rich valley lands have he-  come garden spots, the homes of a  thrifty people. Six years ago one log  hotel stood beside the stage road in  Phoenix and som-2 preliminary work  was going on at the Ironsides and  Knob Hill mines. Today Phoenix is  the premier mining camp of British  Columbia, its output of ore totalling  many hundred of thousands of tons  yearly. Six years ago Greenwood was  a village with three hotels, one private  bank, no churches, no school house, an  embryo mine and no smelters. The  people were a plucky lot though and  when assayed ran high in grit. They  kept pegging away. The Mother Lode  mine grew slowly, steadily into a big  thing. On ground, then a rocky hill  side, a few hundred dollars would have  bought, now stands a fine smelter, its  complete equipment moved by electrical energy carried thirty miles over  the mountain-heights which at Phoenix  reach an altitude of 4625 feet. A number of neglected claims have developed  into valuable gold and silver mines  Five-good churches'have" been'eriicfed."  A fine substantial school house has  been built. A beautiful court house  ���stands on Government street. Many  fine private residence have risen wheres  then no street was graded. The tliree  greatest banking institutions of Cauada have branches, here employing  a dozen men. Stage routes radiate  from Greenwood east, south and west.  Stores and stocks of goods equal >o  those of the largest cities of the land  grace Copper street and excite thi:  wonder of the visitor. ' The Boundary  6 years atro did not ship a ton of ore.  Today its output is a million tons per  yearand fast increasing. . This ton  nage is reduced in its own smelters.  It is only by such retrospection and  contrast that we realize that things  have been doing up here in the hills of  this region. Good men are at ti'e  head of the milling concerns of the  Boundary. They are not stockbrokers  but mine makers. And so the evolution goes on apace. And as yet tilings  are only iu tlieir beginnings. New  capital is coining in to supplement the  old. New energy is being introduced.  New methods have forged to the front.  The riches of the hills are beginning  to minister to the country's welfare.  Six years hence the transformation  will he even greater, and then the  patient working ones will see that  their labor has not been lost.  ��� The Boundary is lo tie th : pacemaker in the race of mining develop  ment in British Columbia, and (ireeuwood, that has never heralded her  position or resources very loudly, will  continue to be the commercial and  industrial, as it is the geographical,  centre of the Boun .--ary. So here's to  the wealth of the Boundary and here's  to the prosperity of Greenwood, Greenwood with its inner circle of the high  grade gold and silver mines and its  outer circle of the greatest copper deposits on the known earth,  A HOT OLD TOWN.  New York City reports 111 cases of  heat prostration last Sunday. The  advantage a hot old town like Grand  Forks has over New York i.s that the  cool nights peculiar to the Boundary  temper things before morning. Otherwise a few days would kill everything  in sight.  MIDWAY-VERNON RAILWAY.  Mr. H. T. Hazen, engineer, accompanied by Mr G. R. Heckle of New  York, also an engineer, left on Monday morning last for another trip  across the proposed route of the Mid  way and Vernon Railway. These  gentlemen expect to join their principals in Vernon the latter part of this  week aud make their report. Upon  this report the action of the company  will doubtless depend.  NOTICE  To J. VV.

It is not surprising that Mr.  Hill should.be arranging-to build  '"westward^from"MfdwayT It is  surprising that no railway company built into this district years  ago. The more one travels in  the country between the Kettle  river and Hope mountain, the  more is one impressed with the  wonderful resources. There is  no district in the province which  offers greater attractions to the  miner, the farmer and the lumberman. It has a climate that is  almost perfect in winter and summer. Cattle will thrive on the  grazing benches aud it is only in  an exceptional winter when  feeding has to be done. Its valleys will grow any kind of fruit  and with irrigation the possibilities froiu an argricultural and  horticultural standpoint are almost illimitable There is plenty  of room and plenty of land for  hundreds of families and the day  is not far distant when the Okanagan and the Similkameen valleys will be peopled with prosperous settlers.  But its chief wealth is in its  mineral resources. The quantity  is there and what is of equal importance the values are there.  Not onlj- are the precious minerals found ia abundance but  further west are coal measures of  great promise. It is yet an attractive field for the prospector  aud new finds are being made.  On Roche river, on the Tulameen  and still farther west, the prospector is making locations which  will yet be converted into paying  mines.

THE SPOKANE FAIR.  In our last issue Jwe stated that Mr.  L. G. Monroe, Superintendend of the  Fruit Department at the Spokane Interstate Fair this fall, was Secretary  of the Eastern Washington Horticultural Society, We should have  said of the Washing-ton State Horticultural Society, as there is no such organization as the one first  named.  The Fifth Regiment British Artillery  band of Victoria, B.C., will furnish  music at the Spokane Interstate Fair  this fall, October 3rd to 9th. This is  one of the famous military bands of  Canada, and they expect to play a  long engagement during the summer  at the St. Louis Exposition. They  will play during the day at the fair  grounds, and also give a number of  evening concerts.  The Annal Premium List of the  Spokane Interstate Fair is out. It  comes in a new shape this year, being  about the size of a railroad folder and  opening on the longer edge. It is a  very convenient size, and is well  worth reading. Among the changes  observed, one of the most important  is the largely increased prizes in the  Fruit Department. Besides this there  is a complete new department exclusively for the children, and new prizes  in the Fine Arts Department. Every  division shows changes, more or less  SURPRISE.  >'-i ;-ii. i in .1 :i y v-.nin:, hot ;| illllll-  iji.-i >.il I li-- \vi>rk:il'.-!. -il'-liu' I 'i < i -,- ii (.'-in.:-'  mill' (.-iil.i-il <-.ii \f:.

THE GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC.  Late and apparently reliable id vices  say that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway is to absovle the Canadian Northern. Kitimat is reported to be madj  the Pacific terminus. Many who have  invested in Port Simpson on the presumption that it would be the terminus  stand lose by their acting on advance  information. Railways are like horse  races, tips are not alway reliable.  Kitimat is about 120 miles south of  Port-Simpson and is about 70 miles  from the ocean. It is about 300 miles  north of Vancouver being in about 54  degrees of latitude.  Tl.e Grand Trunk Pacific BiU passed  the House of Commons in May and  ���was approved by the Senate on June  24th.

Last week we briefly noticed the fact  that on the night preceding1 our date of  issue the new converting' plant at the  B. C. Copper Company's works here  had had its initial run, to the complete  satisfaction of all concerned. Simultaneously with the new departure at  the company's. works occurred another  .. event of significance. It was the  - inauguration of electrical energy at  the company's works. For months  past the company has been expending-  large sums of money in building a  power line   for   the   transmission   of  ��� power  from  the electric plant at Cascade, in the erection of a substantial  ; brick substation and in the installa-  ';_ tion of the most modern electric equip-  v ment possible. Quietly the company  '��� had gone forward in its betterment  '���works, completely modernizing the  . plant. Machinery, motors and trans-  ���!��� formers have gone into place under  ,,. the   care    of    expert   workmen.     So  ��� thoroughly has the work   been done  that when once  this  new power was  r applied everything moved off without  a hitch.  ,..    The silent engines of other days are  ��� ��� mute evidence of the company's pro  gress    The new power will presently  ; be extended to the mine, three miles  ���west of Greenwood.     The  company is  .. now in a much  improved condition to  ..' increase the margin   of profits.     The  , ..cost of power has beeu materially re-  educed.    Its efficiency has been   mater-  ' ially improved:    The conversion of its  ", own matte into blister copper increases  .'the   company's   pay   roll,   but  at the  ���j-same time increases its profits.     It is  \interesting to visit this  modern  plant  i.and witness  its. workings.      To    the  '���novice   there   seems - something  mysterious and dangerous about the vast  /Ielectrical machinery but to the skilled  V.hand it offers effective service.    Preg-  ! riant with  danger to the ignorant it  //.yields itself a harmless  thing   to   the  .'^expert.  v   The visitor is   shown   blowing   en-  ���'���gines,  electric   motors,   transformers,  electric   cranes,   hydraulic   accumula-  I have some great bargains this week going cheap.

MEETING AT HEDLEY.  Duncan Ross Addresses Large  and  Enthusiastic Meeting.  . hedley, June 23rd.���At a well attended meeting held in the Methodist  church here Duncan Ross, the Liberal  candidate for Yale-Cariboo, addressed  the electors. Findlay Fraser was appointed to the chair.  ��������� Mr. Ross in an hour speech forcibly  defended the record of the Liberal government and contrasted that record  v^ith that of the Conservative for  eighteen previous years. He discussed  the Grand Trunk Pacific contract in  Retail and ridiculed the extravagant  c'ritcisms of the Conservatives. He  qompared the agreement made by the  Liberal government with that under  vrhich the C. P. R. was built. Mr  Ross also discussed the transportation  question from a local point of view and  poked fun at the McBride government  because of the great things expected  in connection with the summer session  which did not materialize. Mr. Ross  eloquently referred to the remarkable  progress made by Canada under a Liberal administration and urged upon the  people of Hedley to join with those in  other parts of the Dominion in returning the present government so that  there should be no danger of those  undertakings which promised so much  for the country being delayed. Mr.  Ross was loudly applauded upon resuming his seat.  ��� C. E, Oliver of Hedley  seconded by  R. S. Collins then moved a resolution  expressing the appreciation of the  people of Hedley of the action of the  Dominion government in surrendering  a portion of the Indian reserve for  smelter purposes and thanking Mr.  Ross for his working in this connection. The resolution was passed unanimously and Mr. Ross briefly acknowledged the same.  The Daly Reduction works at Hedley  are now running. The plant is working smoothly and as soon as. further  machinery arrives it will be run regularly. Mr. Rogers, the manager, is  anxiously awaiting definite news of  railway construction into the Similkameen. As soon as he is satisfied that  a railway is coming, arrangements  will be made for the erection of a big  smelter on the site recently secured  from the Dominion government.  James Reith the. popular hotel man  of Keremeos recently purchased from  Frank Richter the new building at the  cross roads. He has fitted it up into a  comfortable hotel and will move there  on July 1st. The new hotel is more  conveniently, situated fur the travelling;  public and as travel to the Similkameen is rapidly increasing this hotel is  sure to do a thriving business.  The Olalla company has made arrangements in the east for new capital  to develop its promising properties.  W. C. McDougall, the company's manager, recently returned from the east  and work was resumed on the Bullion  one of the company's properties. Six  men are at work. They are sinking a  shaft which is now 30 feet deep. High  values are found in this shaft. The  ore runs $8 in gold and ten per cent,  copper. A. A. Watson, M. E., of Vernon has been engaged by the company  and is now living at Olalla. Arrange-  niehtsarebeing'made fo*-theinstalla-"  tion of a small electric power plant  which will be used in running the  drills. The Olalla compauy now has  new officers and new financial agents  in New York. The new management  has inaugurated a new policy of developing its mines rather than exploiting  the eastern speculators. With properties of splendid promise, there is no  good reason why Olalla should not  become one of the leading milling  camps of the district.  .

The outside boosters of wildcat  schemes have quit and the result is  manifestly in our favor. Buffalo  Hump and Thunder mountain are welcome, to them. The Boundary i.s now  in the business of mine making and  dividend paying and not of stock  printing and assessment levying.  Printing presses may yield nicely  colored stock certificates, but they  cannot turn out matte and bullion.  One Boundary property has quit production of bullion but still retains its  policy of declaring dividends in the  shape of high assessments. That one  is the Waterloo in Camp McKinney  that was going to pay a live dividend  some months ago until somebody  changed his mind.  .��&&:&&��ge-S&:&e&ges&:g'6;gsg;S:6��g^.  iu  RENTING  HOUSES  an easy matter and a profitable  business when decorated  with our  WALL PAPERS  Owners can make from  one to five hundred per  cent by doing the decorating right, and tenants are willing to pay  this when the stock  comes from here.

Wash  The Canadian exhibit at the St.  Louis exposition occupies Sections 54  and 64 at the north end of the Palace  of Mines and Metallurgy. The exhibit is made up by the wholedominioii  instead of by provinces separately, as  at Buffalo and Chicago, which has permitted a great variety of display a.s  well a.s a very imposing exhibit in the  aggregate. While the exhibit is confined largely to minerals it is by no  means a "show case" display. There  are ample quantities of the displayed  minerals and in some cases large  enough pieces to show the inclosing  country rock. The whole is very well  arranged with plenty of space for examination and each exhibit is plainly  labelled. Advantage is taken of the  opportunity to advertise Canada by  means of some conspicuously posted  legends. Some of these are a.s follows:  "Canada supplies over 90 per cent, of  the world's total production of asbestos," "Canada is the largest producer  of mica in the world," "Canada produces over 85 per cent, of the world's  corundum," "Canada supplies 'one-half  of the world's nickel,"- "There are  63,000 square miles of coal in the north  west territories," "The mineial production of Canada for 1903 was /,"63,-  226,510, an increase in ten years of  over ^43,000,000," "Yukon, the land of  gold, produced in 1903 $12,250,000,"  "Novia Scotia produced 5,100,000 Ions  of coal in 1903," "British Columbia  produced in 1903 1,482,000 tons of coal,"  "Canada produced in 1903 $5,728,000  worth of copper, an increase of 700 per  cent, in ten years." VVit.i these and  other striking statements the Canadian commission has sought to attract  attention.to a display which certainly,  leaves the impression that the dominion is a country of great mineral  resources.  The deposits of the less common  economic minerals, of which eastern  Canada produces' so many, attracts  lirst attention. There is a wonderful  display of inica from Quebec. The  mica "books" are slacked several feet  high aud some of them are 12 inches or  more in thickness and more than a foot  across. One plate is over six foot  long. There is mica also from Parry  sound and British Columbia. There  are some remarkably large feldspar  crystals from Frontenac, Ontario. The  asbestos exhibit from Megan tic countv  Quebec, is . particularly fine and includes some samples with the inclosing  rock. There are exhibits of gypsum  from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick  and Quebec and of talc from Ontario.  A fine sample of lithographic stone  from Peterborough, Ontario, is displayed, also samples of appatite and  chromite from Quebec. There are  several cases of manganese ore and  pyrolusitc from Nova Scotia, and some  antimony ores from Wolf county, Quebec, and also stibnite with gold from  Nova Scotia. The display of graphite  from Quebec and Reufre\v crou"nty,"Oii"-  tario, is especially good. There are  some very large molybdenite crystals  from Rossland, British Columbia. The  corundum ores from Ontario, including the blue variety, are extensively  exhibited. Several specimens of the  peculiar jaster conglomerate from the  Bruce mine, Algoma, Ontario, useful  chiefly as. a rnqnuunnital stone, attract  attention because of the contrasting  distribution of red jaspfer pebbles in a  white matrix A case of small tile, an  ore of cobalt from Nipissing, Ontario,  from a recently discovered deposit, is  of curious interest, and an exhinit of  albertite, an asphaltuin mineral from  Albert county, British Columbia, is  one of the rare displays. There is a  sample of native copper from Cape  D'Or, Nova Scotia, which is said to  occur much the same as does the  native copper at Somerville, N. .1.  It will be seen frum the above enumeration that the exhibit of the less  common economic minerals is varied  and represents the many different minerals which are found iu Canada.  The British Columbia gold, lead and  copper ores, Rainy Lake gold ores and  gold quartz from Nova Scotia arc fully  represented in the exhibit, as also a  display of copper ores from Texada  island and zinc ores from Ontario.  Among the interesting exhibits is the  Sudbury section, in which are displayed the pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite  which yield the nickle.  There is an extensive display of coal  ores from Nova Scotia and British  Columbia, and of Nova Scotia iron ore  as well as other Canadian iron ores  The exhibit also includes a dinplay of  building stone and of slate. A large  mass of ferro-silicon from the Electric  Reduction company, Buckingham. < >n-  tario. represents an interesting Cana-  aiau industry  The artistic climax of the exhibit is  a   panoply   covered   with   the  var. >us  colored minerals, artistically arranged,  under which rests a safe in which, exposed to the view of the public, is  540,000 worth of gold nuggets from the  Canadian Yukon.  The exhibit is made still more instructive by numerous specially prepared maps and a pnmphcl describing  the exhibits ia being prepared.  The Canadian mineral exhibit is  under the general direction of Mr. K.  N. Broadbeut, of the Canadian department of agriculture.  GRAND FORKS SUMMER FAIR-  Grand Forks, B.'

THE HELEN.  i  If uniformly high assays  form   any j  criterion the Helen promises  to  prove I  ;i veritable bonanza.     Local public in- I  teivst isjnst now   practically  centered  on 'he progress of development on thi��  claim.    The surprisingly  high   values  iu gold, corresponding-  to  but surpassing the returns from adjacent properties has about established the fact that  the   mines   in the  south  belt will be ���'  mainly  gold  producers   in   coutradis j  tinctiou to the Providence and Klkhorn  and other  properties in the north beh ;  whei e silver values predominate.  The Helen   is situated on   the   east  side   of   Boundary    creek    adjoining;  Greenwood on the south and Anaconda ���  on the east.    In an air line thi Green-j  wood smelter  is only ISno feet distant  from the mine workings.     After careful investigation of the possibilities of  the   camp   Alex.    Miller   bonded   the  Helen last March on behalf of a syndi- j  cate composed of himself, H. N. Galer, j  assistant   general    manager    of    the  Granby     Consolidated    Mining    and  Smelting Co., aud  several  friends  in  San   Francisco.      Development   work  was   started   immediately   under   the  direction  of   W.   II.   Geffery,   M.   K.,  whose  professional reputation  stands  high in the western States and British  Columbia.    In recent years Mr. Jeffery  has directed the development of  properties in Republic, Salmo, Ymir, Ross  land, the Boundary and the Sloean.  At various periods in the pact differ  ent individuals had thrown up bonds  on the Helen owing to their failure to  obtain uniform values and the discouraging difficulties presented at the bot  torn of a 40 foot shaft where the lead  virtually pinched out. The best assays  which had been obtained from the pay  streaks varied from $2 to $20 and ��30  per ton in gold and silver. Recently  by cross cutting and following, a horizontal seam an inch wide from the  fault at the bottom of the shaft to a  point forty feet east the lead was again  recovered at its natural size on its original dip at an angle of fifty degrees  to the east, the strike being northerly  and southerly. Concurrently a drift  was run south 29 feet ou the vein  above the fault on the same level. At  a point 19 feet south of the shaft a  series of samples gave average values  of $115 per ton in g-old and silver,  the former predominating-. Ten feet  farther south on the same lead just  above the fault another series of samplings have average values of $225 per  ton in gold and silver in the same  order. One sample ran $525 per ton.  The drift is being extended farther  south and upraises are being- extended  in the same direction at the same time  in order to extract this high grade ore.  From the point in the 40 foot cross  cut where the ledge was rediscovered  ^this incline shaft is being sunk on the  "Ore." Tl li is" wor k ih g'"wi 11 be "ex te oded to  a depth of 200 feet with drifts north  and south on the vein at intervals of  fifty feet Now that the difficulties  presented by the fault have been overcome the ledge has been found in place  stronger than ever. Its width in the  incline shaft, now being sunk varies  from six to twenty-four inches. The  ore'between walls is singularly free  froht waste, and the recent develop  tnrilit Work has been skilfully planned  dtid <*yecuted.  "the tire is so high grade in character  that it is being sacked preparatory to  shipment to the smelter.     The Helen  within the next four weeks will be a  steady shipper. With gradual enlargement of the workings the force in  charge of the foreman, C. A. Phillips,  will be steadily increased. The outlook for the Helen i.s exceedingly  bright as three other quartz leads to  No. one vein can be traced on the surface north and south across the Helen  and several adjacent properties. Prospect holes and stripping at frequent  interquent on all these lodes have  proven their continuity. They average from ten inches to two feet in  width. As they are parallel to and  have the same mineralization as the  lead now being developed the  same values as the No. 1 vein from  which they are separated by distances  carrying from 80 to 800 feet will probably be encountered. As the Helen  ground rises abruptly to the east, Mr.  Jeffery proposes to extend the cross  cuts from No. 1 incline shaft and tap  these parallel leads at depth.  THE GOLDFINCH.  The Goldfinch mine lies between the  Barbara and the E. P. U. group. It is  traversed the full leng-th of the claim  in a northerly and southerly direction  by a strougly defined quartz vein dipping to the east and paralleling the  veins on the E. P. U. and Barbara.  Several shipments of high grade ore  were treated at the Nelson and Trail  smelters, Tne mine is not being ooer-  ated at present owi'ig to negotiations  for a sale.  THE DEFIANCE.  Wm. Fowler, the former owner of  the Providence, recently ��� took a bond  on the Defiance another promising'  property in the north belt. There is a  thirty foot incline double compartment  shaft sunk on the lead. A tunnel from  the surface follows the vein to the bottom of the shaft. Mr. Fowler made an  experimental shipment which ran over  $200 in g-old and silver. He recently  installed a boiler and pump. This  plant is sufficiently large to enable  him to obtain a depth of 700 feet in the  incline shaft following- the dip of the  quartz lead. The Defiance, it is expected, will soon be added to the list of  dividend payers.  THE BARBARA.  The Barbara, separated from the  Helen by one claim, was bonded several weeks ag-o by Chicago parties and  is now being developed. It lies directly east of town, Copper street  abutting on its weut line. A vein  from seventeen to twenty-six inches in  width constituting one of the biggest  quartz leads in the camp, crosses this  property in a northerly and southerly  direction and traverses ether adjacent  claims. Its trend is north and south.  The lode has thus the same charactis-  tic strike and dip of all the parallel  veins so far discovered and opened up  in the south belt. The mineralization  closely resembles that of the Helen  ffbin which"it: is Separated by one  claim.  The development consist of an incline shaft following the dip of the  lode to a depth of thirty-eight feet. A  crosscut was run to the northeast on  an angle away from the dip of the  vein for ninety feet where the vein was  again encountered strong and heavily  mineralized with a width of 22 inches  of highly oxidized granular quartz  assaying- $37 per ton in all values. On  finding the strike of the lead below  another cross-cut was run forty feet  from the shaft at right angles where  the vein   was again encountered, thus  proving the vein underground for a  length of 82 feet from cross-cut to  cross-cut. The uniform width of the  lead at both places is about 22 inches.  In the shaft before the fault was encountered a careful sv nipliiig gave $77  per ton in all values and on examination of the quartz with a mag-nifying  glass native silver and free gold were  plainly seen. Four men are now engaged sinking an incline shaft on the  vein at a point where it was encountered at the end of a forty fool cross  cut. The shaft will be confined to the  200 foot level withtlrifts on the ore at  intervals of fifty feet.  The vein has been exposed and  stripped clean for a distance of 200  feet on each side of the shaft. Ore  taken from the galena outcrop gave an  average assay of $78.60 per ton in gold,  silver and lead. The Barbara vein is  a parallel lead lo the veins on theE. P.  U. group and Goldfinch mines. The  Barbara claim adjoins the Goldfinch  mine on the west. The Chicago parties holding the bond have eng-aged  Mr. Jeffery of the Helen mine as consulting eugineer.  SEVERAL OTHER PROPERTIES-  Assays miming $1000 per ton have  been obtained from picked samples  from the lead on the Don Pedro, adjoining' the Defiance, east of town  The vein, six inches wide, is well de  fined, possessing the same trend and  dip as those of other rich properties in  the north belt.
