Senator Warner Miller, president of  the Dominion Copper Company, and a  party of officials and other mining- men  interested in the company returned  homeward on Wednesday after spending a week in the Boundaty The  party included M. M. Johnson, consulting eng-ineer of the company; A. M.  "Wickwire a director of the company  and a member of the famous Untermeyer law firm; S. W. Raylor of the  Raylor Engineering company, New  York; H. H. Melville a Boston lawyer  and D. E. Woodbridge one of the U. S.  Steel corporations mining experts,  whose headquarters are at Duluth,  Minn.  The party tinder the guidance of  Manager Drummond and Superintendent Thomas spent a busy week expert-  ing the mines and the smelter. They  spent considerable time at the mines in  Phoenix. All seemed perfectly satisfied with the outlook.  <l*^/'V'W,'W'',wrfW/W/W'  r-v\r**\rf\*sS\*ttlt  The Crescent mine under its new  management is being systematical^'  developed. A force of eight men being now employed on the property.  The shaft is being sunk from the 130  foot to the 200 foot level. As depth is  attained the vein is widening and ,as-  says run from $80 to $127 to the ton.  As was announced -las', week in the  Times no drifting or stoping will be  done until the seven drill compressor is  installed. This should be on the ground  within 60 days.  Col. L. T. Dickason the owner of the  property who left for Chicago last  is well satisfied with tho outlook and  the progress being made in development. He believes he has a mine  second to none in the high grade belt.  For the judicious investment of capital  he believes no field offers better inducements than the Boundary.  Geo! A. McLeod of Grand ForkB was  a visitor to Greenwood this week. Mr.  ; McLeod. is one of the pioneers of the  North Fork country. He was largely  interested in the McKinley mine and  ��tilTha5r<Fxtensive^^  ing interests in that new and promis-1  ing district.

One of the newest and lichest strikes  in the high grade belt has been made  on the Anaconda, a claim owned and  worked by fas. McCreath of the Green-  weed Liquor company, and Charles  Johnson. This claim was located only  a short time ago. A shaft has been  sunk a distance of 18 feet and some  surface work has been done. A lead  about four feet wide carrying gold arid  silver values has been uncovered. Sonie  samples heavily impregnated with free  gold have beeu taken from the vein. It  is one of the best showings in the  camp. There are also good showing-s  on the Sunnyside and Rattler in the  vicinity of the Anaconda.  Fred Mueller local manager for the  Chicago & B. C. Mining Co., has five  men at work on the Crescent Fraction.  In straightening out the old working  shaft last week a 20 inch vein of high  grade ore was uncovered carrying high  values in silver, zinc and lead. An  ordinaly sample running $101 and a  selected sample $368. Work will shortly  be started on the Don Pedro.  A very rich strike has been made on  the Prince Henry at the 170 foot level.  Drifting is now being done on a rich  vein of antimoniai silver from 6 to 10  inches in width. It is expected that a  quantity of high grade ore will be  taken from this vein.  The Eureka, one of the promising-  mines of the high grade belt0is showing up well with present development.  A winze which is being sunk about 30  feet fiom the mouth of No. 2 tunnel is  in ore carrying high values.  DEATH OF LITTLE DAUGHTER  Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Taylor of this  city are mourning the loss of their  little daughter, Mary Eleanor, aged  two years and seven months. The  hild who, became seriously ill last'  ���week and was taken to the hospital on  Tuesday morning but the dread malady which afflicts children of tender  age at this season of the year had too  firm a grip and the little tot passed  away on Tuesday afternoon. The  funeral took place from the residence,  Kimberley avenue, on Thursday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Taylor have the  warm sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.

Railway  Notes���The Nicola Road Nearly  Completed.  Summer Diarrhoea in Children-  During: the hot weather of the summer months the first unnatural looseness of a child's bowels should have  immediate attention, so as to check the  disease before it becomes serious. AU  that is necessary is a few doses of  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy followed by a dose  of castor oil to cleanse the system.  Rev. M. O. Stockland, pastor of the  First M. E. church, Little Falls, Minn.,  writes: "We have used Chamber  Iain's Colic. Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy for several years and find it  a very valuable remedy, especially for  summer disorders in children." Sold  by all druggists.  Hope mountains are proving an almost insurmountable barrier to the  construction of the short line to the  coast. It is a comparatively easy matter to reach the summit from this side  but the difficulty is to get down on the  Fraser river side. Great Northern  engineers have succeeded \��y providing-  for a 6800 foot tunnel in securing a 1%A  per cent grade, but this is not consider-;  ed satisfactory and another party is being sent in there this summer to secure -  if possible a reduction of this grade.    "  J Extensive forest'fires, which extend  from near Cascade to a point close to  the Columbia & Western railway, are  destroying large areas of forests. The  fires started apparently two or three  days ago, and have spread with amazing rapidity. Sunday shortly after  the noon hour the flames came in close  to Farron, a -station on the Columbia &  Western about 24 miles from Cascade.  The employees of the railway turned  put and fought the fire, but dispite  their strongest and most energetic  efforts it soon had all the buildings at'  the siation ablaze, and in a short time  they, were burned to the ground. These  include the railway station, around-'  house, a boarding house, water tank  a'nd some smaller structures. ���- The fire,  jafter it* Had burned down the Farron  structures, passed on in the direction  of the Bulldog tunnel,  ' There are a number of high and  long trestles in that vicinity, and they  Were threatened with distruction; The'  'burning of any one of these trestles  !would interrupt traffic for a considerable period.  \ Superintendent J. S, Lawrence, of  'the Kootenay division, has ordered  'every available man on the road be-  't'ween Robson arid Cascade to the  scene of danger, with instructions to  work night and day, if necessary, to  save the trestles and prevent a further  ^spread of the fires. The sight is said  to be a magnificent one, as the forests'  are ablaze for miles around Farron,  and they continue to spread rapidly  o win glo~th^dr^c^1ditiOT~"of "ther tim^���  ber.  Construction of the last seven or  eight miles of railway from the Forks  to Nicola is going ahead slowly but1  surely, and every ^effort is being made'  to gather togather gang's of men to pu  on the work. The end of the present  work will be at the cut being made at  the dam at Nicola river, opposite the  telephone office.  The line will follow the hill behind  P.   Marquart's house   and   past   Jas; -  Pooley's through Tamerton  ranch on  the foothill, and down  through  Law- .  son's, Garcia's and Vog-ht's ranches.  Notwithstanding the scarcity of  labor, the contractors hope to have  trains running over a portion of tne,,  road in a few weeks time, and as stated in an interview recently with Supt.  Marpole that the road would be taken  over on the 1st of October, will no  doubt be accomplished.  Ballasting on the line already cotn-  pletec is going ahead steadily with  good satisfaction.���Nicola Herald.  Stomach Troubles and Constipation.  No one can reasonably hope for good  digestion when the bowels are constipated. Mr. Chas. Baldwin, of Edwards-  ville, 111., says: "I suffered from  chronic constipation and stomach  troubles for several years, but thanks  to Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver  Tablets am almost cured."

It is a convention called  by the Canadian Forestry Association for the purpose of discussing matters connected with the  preservation and proportion of  the forests. A very successful  convention was held in Ottawa  last winter and it was then decided to hold the next in Vancouver in order that the eastern  people interested in forestry  might have an opportunity of  studying- conditions in this pro-  Tioce.  His excellency the governor-  general has interested himself in  the work of the Canadian Forestry Association and has graciously promised to come to Vancouver to open the convention  and take part in its deliberations.  Sir Wilfred Laurier has also promised to be present if at all possible. His Honor Lieutenant-  governor Dunsmuir is encouraging the convention in every  possible way. He has issued a  circular letter urging those who  are interested in Forestry to attend. The invitation extends to  all classes interested in the work  of preserving our forests and  proprogating the same.  John Hendry, president of the  B. C. Mills Timber and Trading  company, who is oue of the vice-  presidents of the Canadian Forestry Association is interesting  himself in the convention and is  using every possible effort to  make it a success. In this laudable work he should have the cooperation of all British Columbians.  AN OBJECT LESSON  A few years ago there were no  fish in Boundary Creek; today  there are some game trout in the  stream unless the hog fishermen  have caught them all. A few  years ago no one thought of  spending Sunday or any other  day of rest up Boundary Creek;  last Sunday there were families  enjoying their day of rest close to  the stream and fishermen could  be found at different points between the city and Fritz Haus-  sner's ranch.  Because a few fish were planted  in Boundary Creek a few years  ago, tjie livery stables hired  several * teams they would not  otherwise have hired, the stationers sold fishing tackle they  would not otherwise have sold  and the grocer sold some delicacies that would otherwise have  remained ou his shelves; pos3ibly  the brewer might have profited  by reason of the fact that there  are fish in Boundary Creek.  The moral which is pointed is  not hard to see. The doing of a  little thiug a few yean ago  brings hundreds of dollars to the  business men of Greenwood*today  and provides healthy recreation  for a great many people. The  little things count after all and  the citizens who look after the  little things are often the best  citizens.  BENEFITS OF COMPETITION  Notwithstanding the many  doubting Thomases there is often  railway competition. This is  illustrated at Rossland today. By  the clever manipulation of W. H.  Aldridge, the superintendent of  the Canadian Pacific railway's  smelter at Trail a contract was  entered into with the Leo Roi  company under which Le Roi ore  is being treated at Trail instead  of Northport. This left the  Great Northern railway without  any ore to haul from Rossland  camp.  The Great Northern people  wanted tonnage, so they went to  work bonded a number of properties which have been idle for  a number of years and are preparing to ship sufficient ore to  keep the Northport  smelter run  ning.  The result of this little railway fight is ��� that more mines  will be worked iu Rossland, more  men will be employed and business conditions will be greatly  improved.  THE HUB  Greeuwood is today the greatest stage town in British Columbia. No other town in the  province can boast -of as many  stage lines. No less than seven  stage lines make Greenwood their  headquarters and furnish the  travelling public with this rather  primitive means of conveyance.  Three stages run daily between  Greenwood and Midway connecting with the Great Northern  trains. A daily stage runs between Greenwood and Phoenix,  another makes several trips to  and from the Mother Lode, another several trips daily to and  from Boundary Falls, while still  another makes the run to Beaverdell.  In addition to these stage lines  close connections are made with  stages to Similkameen and Sidley  at Midway. All these stages are  business bringers and the present  business prosperity of the city is  in a measure due to the fact that  so many stage lines bring centers  of population into direct touch  with the "hub" of the Bouudary.  creased area under seed would bring  the total yield up to and probably a  little beyond last year's figures. Now,  however, we have news of a reassuring  nature and a considerable increase over  190S is perhaps in order.  "As the newly constituted provinces  of Alberta and Saskatchewan spending-  much money? I do not thinlc so. In  fact they have little to spend. They are  however, building sonic bridges and  will also have to have legislative buildings at Regina and Edmonton."  Mr. Walker declared that the press  of Canada should realize how much  greater are the resources of B. C. than  the provinces of the plains. The  Pacific province, he said, is an empire  in itself and to develop its resources, a  great d-fcal of money has to be spent.  "Legislators," continued the general  manager, "should not be parsimonious  when money is required inB. C, which  will become the revenue producing pro  vince par excellence of the Dominion."  A PASTORAL  That Mr. .Ross, M. P., has  achieved a reputalion for political  trickery, unreliability, shifting  evasiveness and other things that  aire not to be accouuted for by his  early training and environment  The only possible explanation of  Mr. Ross' vagaries is that so far  as politics is concerned he was  born crooked.���Nelson Canadian.  Wm. Fowler, the father of  high grade mining in the Boundary is expected here shortly from  his home in Scotland. Mr. Fowler still hankers after the yellow  metal and he finds it difficult to  live the quiet life after nearly  half a century of prospecting.  He may go north after reaching  here as he is anxious to examine  some mineral deposits discoverd  by him many years before another transcontinental railway  was thought of.  DUE RECOGNITION  A Montreal dispatch tells of an  interview given by Byron E.  Walker, general manager of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce in  which he gives expression to the  following timely recognition of  British Columbia's magnificent  resources.    He was asked :  "What are your banks' news from  the western crop belt?  "For a week or two. we had news ot  rust and '���other discouraging features,  consequently we supposed that, while  the yield would fall off per acre, the i n-  J. A. Macdonald, Liberal leader in the local house, intends  visiting Cariboo, Lillooet, Similkameen and other constituencies  this fall.  WALKEM-CUTHBERTSON  Rock Creek was the scene of a very  picturesque marriage on Wednesday  morning last when two prominent residents of Vancouver were joined in  wedlock in a canvas tent away from  the frills and furbelows and formalities of high society. Mrs. Iyilo Cuth-  bertson of Vancouver was visiting  Major and Mrs. Pilsworth in their  camp; Major Pilsworth having charge  of the irrigation engineers staff. Hugh  Walkem a prominent Vancouver business  man   and   a   brother   of  Judge  Walkem's soon followed and aiTthey  had been engaged for some time and  desirous of getting married, they decided that a tent in the beautiful valley  of Kettle river was much preferable to  a mansion in Vancouver. So Rev. J.  L��eech Porier of Greenwood was sent  for and the marriage took place in  Major Pilsworth tent. A weddiug  breakfast lacking none of the delicacies  of city life was served and the happy  couple was toasted in sparkling chau-  pagne. Mr. aud Mrs. Walkem left the  sameafteruoou to spend a two week's  honeymoon at Banff aud other mountain points.  AUDITORIUM     -     GREENWOOD  Thur.

The lease is to  run for two years, or until 125,000 tons  of ore have been shipped, with a royalty on theuoutput, at the eml of which  period, if the leasing company wishes  to purchase the niine, a price will be  agreed on, if possible. It is the full  intention of the leasing company to  work the minia- to ��� its fullest ^.capacity  as scon as the preparations are coin-  pleti:, arid smelting arrangements  made. A circular-has'just* beeu issued  by the Snowshoe company to the shareholders, anuottcing the lease to a  "stroiag'companv'on^satisfactbr-y-terms;*-  For the last six or eight years Mr.  Waterlow has taken a great deal of interest in the Snowshoe, visiting the  property nearly every year while it was  being operated, and he is confident  that ultimately his strong faith in he  property will be amply justified by the  finding of still larger and better bodies  of ore of a satisfactory grade.  Mr. Waterlow is not in .ictive busi  ness life, but is a member of the board  of directors of Waterlow & Sons, Ltd.,  one of the largest manufacturing- printing establishments in the world, and  employing from 7,000 to 10,000 people  in the various branches and departments.���Pioneer.

The trial judge decided in his favor  that under the terms of his agreement  with the company he was entitled to  notice, and now the Full Court agrees,  both Mr. Justice Irving and Mr. Justice  Morrison giving written decisions.  ' "It seems extraordinary," says Mr.  Justice Irving, ''that there should be  any difficulty in an everyday case of  this kind, but a multitude and diversity  of decisions make it a most embarrassing- one lo deal with. The earlier  cases proceed on the assumption that  if a master hired a servant without  mentioning the time, that was a general hiring, and therefore a hiring for  a year. But the modern method is ��to  determine each case as a question of  facts upon its own circumstances."

C0NDEMING FRUIT  Large quantities of California fruit  are daily being condemned by Provincial Fruit Inspector Cunningham, says  an exchange.  "It would seem," he said, "that a  veritable avalanche of pests and diseases must affect the district this year.  It is far worse than I ever knew it to be  since ni}' connection with the department. It is possible that owing to the  scarcity and consequent high price of  the fruit this year strenuous efforts are  bein-tr made to unload a supply here  which'would not be marketable on the  other side. But the standard here is  being strictly enforced, and any 'dumping' will not be permitted. The fruits  affected are pears, peaches and plums,  and the causes for condemnation are  numerous. Both rail and water carriage bring the product which have  failed to pass inspection-"  ��� Mr. Cunningham added that his  method of dealing with the difficulty  was to return the consignments to the  shippers whenever possible; otherwise  to have it taken to the crematory for  destruction.  erii i  %-A  \ ������'-  Tjrri-prt-A'--  ij-'A?;-;'"'-''���.

C, A. Blutt and A.  G. Edwatds, holders of the property,  received $10,000 for it*. The new concern is incorporated as the Molson  Gold Mining Company, of which H. F.  Beery and I). W. Dart, of Columbus,  Ohio, are the leading spirits. Representatives of the new owners are now  enroute here and immediately upon  their arrival will contract for the erection of a concentrating mill, and mining operations will be commenced as  soon as possible. The deal was put  through by Col. M. A. Smalley, of  Chesaw, who during the past sixty  days has tuaned three transactions  bringing into the,Myers Creek mining  district nearly 540,000 in cash.  The Poland China mine consists of  four claims. It is one of the oldest  mining properties in the Myers Creek  district, having been located as soon as  the Colville reservation was thrown  open to miners, in 1896. Neal Unden  and Jerome Henkins were the original  locators of the property. George B.  Mediant purchased it shortly after its  location, for a large sum of money,  stated by some to be $15,000. He proceeded to develop the mine and fine ore  was encountered. Development work  to the value of many thousands of dollars was done at the same time Mr.  Mecham was building the town of  Molson. At this time also he had surveyed and constructed to tho mine the  road which is now used as a thoroughfare frottt Molson to that point and  which continues on to Chesaw. Vari-  ious improvements made on the Poland  China and the road are said to have  cost Mr. Mecham in the neighborhood  of ��65,000, to say nothing of the orign-  al cost of the mine.  Mecham, despairing of railroad transportation, it wiil be remembered, left  the coi ntry some six years ago and  never returned. In the vicissitudes of  fortune following, the property finally  came into the hands of C. A. Blatt aud  A. G, Edwards, who iu their development work of last year, not only' pro  ved the great value of the property,  but made additional important discoveries that added largely to its promise.���Molson Independent.  isw^-  DISSOLUTION OF PARTNERSHIP  NOTICK is hereby triveu that the partnership heretofore e.xistinir between MoPherson ,fc  Craiir. hotel keepers, lioundarv Falls, has been  dissolved.

For 28  years the visits of Richards &Pringle's  Famous Georgia Minstrels have been  looked upon as a gala event, always  clean, wholesome and good, their name  has caused the largest theaters to be  filled to overflowing. This season  these gentlemen have fairly eclipsed  themselves in organizing a company  of genuine colored artists, called from  the ranks of all the bfst minstrel people  on earth. Clarence PowUl heads the  list, and proper thai he should. This  extremely funny colored comedian has  made more people laugh, and perhaps  receives the largest salary of any comedian, white or black, in the world to  day. The programme promised will be  oh the old time minstrel order, the  same as made minstrelsy so famous in  past years. Sweet southern melodies,  beautiful music, dances and witticisms  make up a programme that is bound to  please and interest. The Company  travel in their own special Pullman car  and number over forty people. Tli :  noon-day parade and evening band  concert will be given as usual. They  appear Thursday, August 16, at Auditorium.  The use oi underground compressors  obviates a loss by friction in transmission and also makes possible a saving  in labor, as the man iu charge can also  attend to other duties There is sometimes a disadvantage in that the air  compressed may be foul and therefore  unfit for ventilation at the headings.

In all this  the local newspaper plays an important  part, Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happens  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings, Amonr/ its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  -citizens who want employment, business  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking investments, In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the [local paper  is an important factor.

J^m secretary of the Information bureau  af the Wonen's Institute of London,  Eng., Miss Hodge is 'directly interested in oil matterw appertaining to the  -mpif e. " i  The Women'* Institute was formed  in 1897 by Mrs.  WytfftJrd Philippa,  to  be a center for women's work and to  -pro-ride a Meeting place for men and  women interested in "the adrancemeut  of women.   At present it  has about  ,700 members in all parts of the globe,  and also about 50 associated societies,  one of these being the National Council of Women of Canada.   All members hare the .right  to ask six questions a year,  and  the enquiries   sent  Ip touch on every conceivable subject,  ^ion-members also have the privilege  of having questions answered on pay*  ment of a small fee, and research is  undertaken at    the   British   Museum  library, if   necessary.    To   men   and  ���sromen^aliks -this-has -proved- a- great  boon, and the fact that the Women's  Institute is appointed to act as the information bureau of the international  council of women shows the import-  ace and the value of*the work done.  Once every year delegates from the  .   rious national   councils   of   women  ,ieet at No. 92 Victorio street, London,  S. W., and give an account of the work  tone by their respective councils.   At  'ie last meeting of this kind,  held on  ���uch 28, Mrs.  Fitzibbon  represented  .nada, aad her eloquent address was  >ned to with the very greitest in-  ast by those present.  Throughout   the  year  many   other  conferences and lectures are held at  th��  Women's Institute,  aud the subjects treated are of a varied character  literature, history,  travel,  sociology,  music,  drama,  each  alike receives attention in order that the  many  members may find something to attract or  interest.  ���' There is also in connection with the  institute a musical society \rhich pro-  rides afternoon and evening entertainments, and an art and handicraft  society, which holds exhibitions and at  rnhich members have an opportunity  of showing and selling their pictures  and handicrafts. Two years ago the  yeomen's Art society of Canada sent  a consignment of -Canadia manufactured goods, and the beauty and originality of the textures exhibited  elicited much admiration. Besides this  there is a debating society, a voluntary  helpers' association, which does good  work ef all kinds. It has a reference  library of books bearing on various  subjects, and a secretarial school,  inhere well educated girls are trained  is-the usual tenchnical subjects of  shorthand, typewriting and bookkeeping and where f'-ey  also receive  very  Valuable practical experience in the  varioua duties, expected of a well  ' trained secretary. During the latter  part of their course, (which consists  of three terms), they work under Miss  Hodge and have a thorough grounding  ia indexing and research work. Most  of these girls have posts waiting for  them before their training is over, and  it is very gratifying to know that the  public and politial societies which  employ these young secretaries almost  invariable apply to the Women's Institute when from oae cause or another  the post again becomes vacant.  The countess of Aberdeen is on both'  the committee and the council of the  institute, and though not able to take  an active part in the work, owing to  her absence in Ireland, she has the  highest opinion of the work done by  the institute and constantly sends  people there for advice and help. The  Institute is not an employment bureau  in aay sense, but one of its chief aims  is to set before women the dignity and,,  honor of well' executed .work, and to  give information at all times as to the  best means to employ to ensure that  they may be well trained and thoroughly capable of filling the parts  which they may be called upon to  occupy.  Miss Hodge will visit the coast cities  and also Ottawa and other eastern  cities before returning to England. <������  TOM CORKILL KILLED  A Great Northern Ore Train Runs  Over Him at Phoenix.  Tom Corkill, of of the earliest prospectors in the Boundary was killed by  a Great Northern ore train last lunday  night. Corkill and his parther Thomas  Kermeen left Phoenix Sunday evening  and were following one of the Great  Northern tracks towards th�� Meadow  Lark where they were working. Cor.T  kill sat down on the track to rest.  Kermeen went up the track and hearing the ore train coming he shouted to  Corkill but the doomed man did not  get ont of the way in time. The locomotive caught him and he was so seriously injured that he died in a few  minutes.  Thoa. Corkill was well known in the  Boundary. For a number of years he  worked in the big mines in the district  and was at one time a shift boss at the  Mother Lode. He was about 46 years  of age, unmarried and a native of the  Isle of Man. He was a member in  good standing of the Greenwood Miner's Union under whose auspices the  funeral was held.  DRESSMAKING  and all kinds of sewing  will be done by Mrs. C.  B.

BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES  > nr,  FRANKLIN   CAMP  Vivid History of tho North  Fork Mineral Zone  STORY BY W. A. HARKIN  Scores of Prominent Engineers Have  Inspected the Large Ore Bodies.  Much Work Being Done.  W. A. Hark-in, formerly offhe Tiifves  staff, has furnished tlie" following-'interesting- report of Franklin camp :  The lure'of gold, silver and copper is  rapidly transforming a howling wilderness into a civilized community. The  process can be studied here at close  range. It is vibrating with life flavored with a coloring and furnished--.with  a picturesqueness only found in the far  West. It would stir the dullest imagination.  Franklin camp was only a name six  years ago, when Frank McFarlane,  trapper, prospector and frontiersman  and Jim Welcher, better known as  '���'Deadshot Jim," on account of his  unerring aim, discovered pay ore.  McFailane located what is now known  as the Banner mine, copper-gold proposition with seoarate leads of galena  of fabulous wealth. His fellow-pioneer  Deadshot Jim, planted stakes on McKinley mountain on'the soiith 'side-of  Frankliri creek. His location has  since provenr-to be a veritable bonanza.  Other prospectors rushed iu the during  the followiug spring, and manyp'ro-  niisiug- locations were recorded. 2'The  camp, however, languished for several  years owing to its. seeming remoteness  from transportation. The nearest  railway . station is at Grand Forks,  forty-five miles down the north fork of  the Kettle river. Many prospectors,  despairing of railway facilities within  the next decade, gradually abandoned  their holdings. Meantime an exhaustive report on the camp had been prepared by Dr. Brock, of the Dominion  geological survey. It was illustrated  by a colored map setting forth the ideal  geological conditions which exist here.  According to this well known authority  the copper-gold belt is restricted to a  region.about four miles wide by eight  or nine in length north and south. Ifs  eastern b'6uttdary is .situated several  thousand feet easterly of the. eas' fork  of the north fork. The original basin,  composed of sedimentary' rock, ' has  since been elevated in places. McKinley and. Banner mountains and Mineral  Hill indicate where a seismic disturbance at some remote period tilted the  basin skywards for over one thousand  feet above the valley'' Their summits  and slopes are now covered with stakes.  A system of parallel lime clykas in  this mineral bearing zone have an  apparent trend in a northeasterly and  southwesterly direction. At various  points^ they=--alternate-=with^ bird's eye  porphyry,' so dear to the prospector's  heart. The richest ore", is.usually found  at the contacts. As a general thing,  the summits of the hills of this ancient  basin are surmounted with massive  ridges of porphyry. In the valley and  extending up the slopes almost to the  crests.occur huge boulders of conglomerate or "pudding stone." Their  presence is indicative of great volcanic  action. The pebbles comprising these  masses, rounded and worn, are cement-.  ed together firmly by a'n eruptive rock  resembling andesite.  The  second  period  of the hi story of  Franklin camp dates back two years,  when George A. MacLeod, of Grand  Forks, acquired the McKinley group,  and started development .work on au  extensive scale under the direction of  A. D. McPhee. a practical mining man  with an invaluable experience gained  in Colorado. It is now generally conceded that the McKinley is destined to  become one of the greatest mines in  British Columbia. The property has  long since passed the stage of doubt  and uncertainty. Already there is a  very large tonnage in sight. The ore  is a typical high grade chalcopyrite,  with subsidiary values iu gold and  silver. The original surface showing  has been replaced by a series of large  open cuts along the trend of the ore  zone. A long tunnel and a drift have  likewise proven the magnitude of the  self fluxing ore bodies. Thiscwork has  been supplemented by extensive diamond drilling operations. Two plants  have demonstrated,the continuance of  the ore at depth.ts They have been  running day and night for several  months. Recently a big outcrop of  magnetite was uncovered on the surface, ensuring fluxing;, material for  many years.  The .ownership of the McKinley is  vested in a company controlled by F.  August Heinze, the Butte mining millionaire, and several New York capitalists'. Mr. Heinze closed the deal after  a personal visit to the camp last fall.  His purchase augurs well for the future of the camp. The Butte operator,  who fought the Standard Oil trust to a  standstill,, has expressed himself in  enthusiastic terms regarding the future of this region. Shortly afterwards  h'is" com da ny' acquired working bonds  on twenty other claims in Franklin  camp. This imposing group is situated  in the heart, of the mineral belt, and  with development-will probably make  other mines equally as rich as the McKinley, whose ores are popularly  credited with averaging twice the  value of. the low grade ores.of the  Boundary district.  The possibilities of mining in Franklin can be realized from the fact that  the Granby Consolidated within the  past six years has distributed dividends  exceeding ���$94S,000 -exclusive of the  enormous profits invested in enlarging  the smelter at Grand Forks and adding  to the equipment of the mines at  Phoenix. Impressed with this wonderful showing, Mr.-Heinze and his  associates have not hesitate 1 to expend money very -freely. If half the  claims now under bond are taken up  many prospectors will realize handsome  fortunes. The McKinney. will probably soon be equipped/with a compressor  pla.nt. .'..... ..........    t.      . ..    ' i  Hein-ze's investment has stimulated  and even given the camp a prominence it never before occuoied. Since  early spring the i*n*ineral belt has been  overrun with prospectors from Nelson,  Rossland, Grand Fonts, Phoenix,  Greenwood, as well as from various  American mining camps. Abandoned  claims have been restaked and -several  hundred-.-, new locations have been  made. 'A continuous fiisilade all day  long impresses oif with the magitude  of-th��--deqelopmentiwqrk-now-=in--pro--  gress. T*r.e mining gam.; has a subtle  fascination unequalled by that of any  other occupation. Rugged men of  weather beaten appearance are seen at  work on every hillside. The very next  shot in the ironcapping may bring  them fame and fortune? The elusive  goddness they ever cannot dodge them  always. Some of.them are inevitably  doomed to failure, for so fate has decreed. They nave followed the game  for years without success, buoyed up  by a hope destined never to see its  fruition.

Eveningtide and as the sun sinks behind the peaks the blasting ceases and  a strange calmness follows. Night  envelopes the earth-apace. Soon the  open fires scattered up and down the  valley or dotting the hillsides indicating the camp grounds where tired prospectors are preparing their evening  meal. One by one the lights gradually  disappear and naught is heard but the  drowsy tinkle of bells on half a hundred horses munching feed in the bottom lands, the distant bark of a coyote  or the screech of an owl.  The large ; ore bodies, of Franklin  camp were inspected this summer by  scores of prominent mining- engineers  and other representatives of capital.  The visitors were almost a unit in declaring that the prospective ore ton  nage is enormous and in predicting  that shipments three:years hence will  equal the present output of Phoenix.  The C. P. R. and the Great Northern  have had.their experts on the ground.  It is an open secret that their reports  have been of the most favorable character, The Kettle Valley line is now  building north from Grand Forks.  The gradim outfits are now strung  along the route to a point fourteen  miies beyond the snir-lter city. The  railway will probably reach Franklin  in the fall of 1907, when a large ore  tonnage will be- available. Although  no official announcement has yet been  made it is generally, understood that  the C. P. R. is backing the Kettle  Valley railway extension. Jim Hill  will probably parallel* his rival al no  distant day. His. surveyors have located a line to point about 28 miles from  this camp.* While the-McKinley overshadows all other properties in this  camp there is every reason to believe  that it will have several formidable  rivals. A list of twenty or thirty promising- prospects could be enumerated.  The best are the Maple Leaf, the  Gloucester and the Banner groups.  The former sprang into importance less j  than two months ago when a rich  strike of chalcopyrite ore was made on  the surface. The showing has since  improved wonderfully. Five large  open cuts are in high grade ore. Many  old timers declare that the Maple Leaf  far surpasses the McKinley at the  same stage of development. This  group was bonded from the owners by  Messrs. Geo. A. McLeod and H. W.  Warrington of Grand Forks, who in  turn rebonded the group to a Salt Lake  City syndicate. Extensive development work is'now in*full swing. There  is'already a large tonnage in sight.-  Franklin, the embryo tented citv,  promises to enjoy a future commensurate with the development of the  mineral-wealth in the adjacent hills.  It is located ori a gently adulating  plateau south of Franklin creek and  w'est of the north fork. A square mile  of laud has beeri surveyed and platted.  The site'is an ideal one controlling, as  itdoes^ti'-e^appi-oach^to.alLportious^ot  the camp. It occupies '.he entire  width of the valley at this point. No  visitor can reach McKinley, the Banner or Mineral Hill without traversing  the main thoroughfare of the townsite.  Here ends the long wagon road from  Grand Forks and here will be located  the future postoffice. This ambitious  little "city" although scarcely two  months old has a population of about  fifty inhabitants'- mainly comprising  freighters, carpenters, and prospectors.  The Waldorf-Astoria, as it has been  named, is a tented hotel which is  daily crowded with guests. Tents are  fast being replaced by permanent  buildings. A frame hotel and a log  store will soon be realities. Other  business enterprises are planned or are  being planned. Old timers predict  that the stirring scenes witnessed in  Rossland in- boom days will soon be  duplicated here on the banks of the  east fork.,  ������.Jm-J^wJm.X^M^HK^  "Make Hay While the Sun Shines."  There is a lesson in the work of the  thrifty farmer. He knows that the  bright- sunshine may last but a dav,  and he prepares for the showers which  are so liable to follow.
