"ELKHORN"  MADE BY THE  Over 5,000 Feet of Work Done on the Best Known of  of the Long Lake Claims���A Very Rich Lead  Reqiring Intelligent Management.  In the year 1895 a band of hardy  pioneers were operating in the Greenwood district. ��� Some of them still remain in the country, others have  left for pastures new, while others have  crossed the great divide and arc remembered no more. During this year  Long Lake was discovered and .the  mining claims on the east' side of the  lake located., The .headquarters of the  prospectors were mostly at Boundary  Falls, at which point supplies w,ere  purchased aud necessary repairs, such  as blacksmithing, done.  The deal at present pending between the Jewel company, of London,  Eng., and the Le Roi No.,2, limited, of  of London, Eng.\ and Rossland, B. C,  by'which it is hoped the latter company -,will purchase the mines and  properties of the former with a, view  to opening up the Long Lake camp  again after years 6f idleness, was the  primary reason for a visit to the'camp  by a representative of The Timea this  week.' Nothing definite can be learned  as to the probable outcome of the negotiations "which have been, in progress for some months past, but the  Jewel is such a valuable property that  on this ground alone it is expected the  Rossland company will purchase"and  workN the property as it, should "be  worked, and as it might have been  for the past f ew,years had not'the Officials in London endeavored'to manage  the mine from their end instead of letting a most capable manager do -it  from this end. The^gentleman _ ia  question got so disgusted at ,last with  the unending contradictory orders, received, that he quit the mine'and'fit  has since remained idle.   . 4  ' The main lead in the camp is the so-  called^ Jewel lead.'which was discovered  on the Denero Grande by C. J. McArthur of Greenwood after the Jewel  was located, but which ran thrpugh  the Jewel location. Quite a list of  claims are on this lead,'beginning at  the south, the Greenwood end, there is  the DENERO CHEKO  located by Fred Shonquest and at  present owned by the mayor of Greenwood, Geo. R. Naden. The meaning  of the words denero cheko is '-little  money."-  The next claim north is the   -OENERO^GRANDK,  located by C. J. McArthur and Fred  Shonquist, and ou which the main  lead was discovered. A half interest  in this property was bonded to the  Jewel company this spring-by Mr. McArthur for ths sum of 316,000, payable  in one year, from the date of. jbond.  The Jewel company were the owners  of the other l\alf and evidently wanted  the whole of the property in order to  be in a position to deal with the Josie  people. It was this deal which, first  started the interest in Long Lake  camp and gave those interested ia the  doings of this district an inkling oi a  possible revival this summer. The  main lead runs practically due north  and south, and the next claim to the  Denero Grande to the north is the  jEWEi,. ���  on which the great bulk of the development work so far done in the camp has  been confined. The Jewel was located  by Frank Ditmer and Louis Bosshart.  The latter gentleman, as is well known  tomatty.is at present in Greenwood  on one of his periodical visits from the  camp he is now interested in between  the We6t and the Main forks of the  Kettle river.  On the Jewel there is' a, main shaft,  sunk on the lead, 300 feet deep, with  drifts on the 50,120, 200 and 300-foot  levels. These drifts total in all about  3,500 feet of work including raises and  shafts, the total amount of work done  on the property is nearly 5,000 feet.  Altogether the sutri^of $150,000 has  been spent in developmen work.  When the Columbia and Western  was built the company started shipping ore from Burns' siding, the nearest railway Opoint to the mine and a  trifle over three miles distant, and before the mine was closed had shipped  One Dollar Saved Represents Ten  Dollars Earned.  The average man does not save to  exceed ten per cent of his earnings.  He must spend nine dollars in living  expenses for every dollar saved. That  being the case he cannot be too careful  about unnecessary expenses. Very  often a few cents properly invested,  like buying seeds for his garden, will  save several dollars outlay later on. It  is the same in buj'ing Chamberlain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.  It costs but a few cents,Jaud a bottle of  it in the house often saves a doctor's  bill of several dollars.

Where the vein is very wide  it'is of low grade, and where it is narrow it is very high grade, some of it  has been known to run as high as $500  to the ton. The whole' of the ore will  perhaps average $12. Before the mine  swas closed il was decided to build a  cyanide plant and treat the ore on the  property. For the purpose of getting  the lumber for the buildings the com-'  pany erected a sawmill on the lake  front at the south end. It was used  but very little'and is still intact. After  the inUl was finished orders were received from England not '.o go ahead  with the cyanide plant and the manager of the mine went home.  The mine is equipped with, a small  hoisting engine, not large enough for  working the mine at its prosent stage  of development, a 5-drill .compressor,  two 80-horsepower boilers, two sinking  pumps and a large station pump at the  200-foot level.        >   -  North of the Jewel are the -  V ' ENTERTRISE AND ANCHOR t '  claims, the former is a fractions-and  was located by Geo. Leeson, and'the  latter by S. Bennermah of Midway.  Both are now owned by a company'in  which Mackenzie & Mann own the '  control, and'owing to whose method!*  the properties are idle today, with- no  prospect of being worked.  Next follows thel .      *  ���   '     ETHIOPIAN, '  located, by Robert Patterson and Dan  Stewart.'/" ' ���" . /V-'^v,-?;, si      - '  The Robert Emmett is the next claim ���  and was located ,by C. J. McArthur.  The Idaho is the next. It was located by John Luce of Greenwood, who  still .owns a one-third interest, the  other two thirds interest being owned  by the estate of the late P. J. Largey ,  of Butte, Montana. -.  This comprises the full list of the  locations, claims and mines on the  main Jewel lead. To the west on the  lake ��ront there are some promising  properties named the Prince' Albert,  Gold Bug and Lakeside.  The Jewel company own some other  claims to the east of their main property called the Imperial, Massachusetts  and Gold-Dropr---No work-has-been���  done on the two first, but a 40-toot  shaft haa'been sunk on the latter and  the highest grade ore taken out that  was ever discovered in Greenwood  camp?rich in both gold and tellurium.  All these Ipropet ties are on the east  side of Long lake, which is about'two  miles long and half a mile wide at the  widest point. The lake is located to  the north of Greenwood and can be  reached bv a good wagon road branching from the Eholt road. Two years  ago the lake was stocked with trout  spawm from the neighboring lakes  and streams aud it is expected that in  time it will be a fine fishing resort.  The present wagon road follows the  old trail cut in 1895 by about twenty of  those interested in the camp. It was  cut about eight feet wide and can siill  be found in- places where the wagon  road has deviated somewhat from the  old trail. It took but three days to  cut out.  Long lake is drained by Granite  creek, which flows into Eholt creek at  the foot of Eholt meadows. '  1 \  >   �� ? r  ;.-1 -      v ''I- ,  (,������' ' .  .<   . (���  BOUNDARY CREEK   TIMES.

Glance is a term applied 'o certain  opaque minerals  of which   the   high  lustre and and color indicate their  metalliferous character. Chalcocite  is known often as copper glance.

Moisture may be successfully removed from compressed *air by conducting the air from the receiver  through a reducing valve or pressure  regulator into a second receiver having  a drain valve in the bottom. The air  passing through this apparatus will  be found to reach the machines in a  dry state.  In handling steel or iron in large  quantities by a crane, a lifting magnet will be found greatly superior to  chains, hooks or clamps. Magnets are  instantly attached or detached, thus  saving much time. A current of from  one to twelve,amperes is necessary,  according to the work to be done.     ,  Sunlight is an active agent in producing chemical changes, and the recent speculation as to its effect on the  ^yanide process is interesting.

The  indicated pressure will be in error one  pound, up or "down, -for each 27.7 inches of water remaining in the connecting pipe.  The usual theory of the stability of  masonry dams assumes but two ways  in which failure may be expected, by  sliding bodily'off its foundations or by  a bodily break in a horizontal line near  the toe. The new theory, which is attracting so much attention, apparently*  demonstrates that rupture may take  place hi a vertical'line before failure  by horizontal separation can occur.  The factor of safety against Ihe vertical,rupture ��'s btated .to be only oue  half to two-thirds that which is usually used against horizontal rupture.  If this is true it will be apparent that  existing dams of this nature are  amply safe,���Mining-Reporter.  One  Dollar  Saved   Represents Ten  "     ��� Dollars Earned.  The average 'man does not save to  exceed ten per cent of his earnings.  He must spend nine dollars in living  expenses for every dollar saved. That  being the case he cannot be too careful  t  about unnecessary expenses. Very  often a few cents properly invested,  like buying seeds for his garden, will  save several dollars outlay later on.

Not long'' ago we received a letter  from an.investor -who resides near the  Atlantic, asking "if there were any-  honest men in British Columbia?"  says the Lardeau Mining "Review. He  had lost his money in 'mining, not  through the failure of the property,  but through the operations of people  in his own state. The property, is today in good shape and will undottbt-  edly prove a dividend-payer,,but the  promoters of the original company  failed and'this particular individual  lost his money, and now he'curses  British Columbia. "We have had letters from other eastern parties along  the same line on another property. [On  enquiry we found this property was  bonded and payments were to be made  monthly. T.he property was stocked  for a large amount and $30,000 worth  of stock sold. The promoters pocketed  a large portion of this, paid part of it  on the property and'did some development. Today the stockholders who  put in this $30,000 have nothing to  show for their, money. The bond has  lapsed and the investor curses the  country. He was bounced out of his  money by his own. people not, acting  .honestly with him. The property is a  good one andworth every dollar asked  .'for it. The millions lost in the Le  Roi were not lost because of failure of  the property, but because of the rascality of the London operators. We  can cite hundreds of other instances  where failure has come'and the investor has lost because of either the incompetency or dishonesty of his own  people. But poor old British Columbia  has to stand the racket. We say without fear of contradiction that the re-.  sources of British Columbia both in  minerals and timber are such that if  the money invested is carefully and  judiciously expended the chances of  failure as small as in any other line of  business., Now, Mr. Loser, be honest;  find out the channel through which  your own people have wasted your  money; and if you lean afford it, come  out to B. C. and you will find that the  country is teeming with wealth aud  the people straight.        > '  Hamilton Times: One of the visiting ministers, a Rev. Dr. Bell of San  Erancisco, was guilty of an act of  bumptiousness and bad taste at the  International Sunday School Union in  Toronto yesterday that is not to be  easily excused. He launched cut in an  annexation harrangue and declared  that we should be "under the same  legislature, under the same lawmakers,  under the same great national institutions," and he hoped to. live to see the  day when we should be.all "Americans " The untimely and insulting  -sentiment was received in dead silence.  What a pity somebody haden't talked  back!  .Vancouver World: The report of the  military board of enquiry into the so-  called "army scandals," extracts from  which have been cabled during, the  ~past week^comes somewhat in-the-iia-  ture of a shock to "colonials," who  have been accustomed to look upon the  British army officer as a being "sans  peur et sans reproche," incapable of  jobbery or graft as the art is known on  this side of the world. Putting the  most favorable construction upon the  fragments of the report which have  reached us, the only conclusion possible to arrive at is that a very grave  state of affairs has been unearthed in  in the army supply department, and  that a thorough reorganization of that  branch of the service is imperatively  necessary. Speaking of the report,  Public' Opinion says:" Ruthless exposure and condemnation of the practices- of contractors and officers responsible for the supply of stores to the  army during the South African war is  the result of the inquiry presided over  by Lieutenant-General Sir William  Butler. In issuing the blue book the  secretary ot state is careful to point  out that in many instances the case is  not proven, and that the evidence is  necessarily incomplete, the explanation seems often to be a convenient  loss of memory as to facts by implicated individuals. The scandal of the  whole business is much greater'than  even the worst enemy of the contractors imagined, and unfortunately incompetence and indifference- supplemented corruption. "  The Chinese in *'the Transvaal are  granted the same trading licenses as  are the whites. On this account the  latter are finding it rather hard to continue in business. The Asiatics bid  for the patronage of their fellow countrymen working in the mines and are  of course successful, to the detriment  of the trade of the white storekeeper.  The matter will be considered by the  Transvaal government.  '  $  m  -��  Never in the history of the Boiindar-y has the district had a-brighter outlook than today-.- With the successful de/,  velopment of the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities for treating  at a very small cost,    the continued opening up of new high grade properties and their successful and profitabl'  operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to the list of new finds an d-  bigger values.   It is readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto,  and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte,    If you?  therefore want to participate in its   future prosperity, now is the time to invest both in mines and real estate, ^ For  NINETY DAYS we intend giving you a chance to make a.safe and profitable investment.
