TKE CITY COUNCIL.  Business Done at the Regular Meet-  tine Monday Evening.  There were present at the regular  meeting* of the city council on Monday  evening His Worship Mayor Ilar-ly  and Aid. Galloway, Sutherland, Crop-  ley and Sullivan. Gay & Co., of  Montreal asked for particulars regarding- the debentures as they were  desiious of tendering for the ..ame.  Property owners on Government street  petitioned for a sidewalk. Pringle &  Whiteside on behalf of the Greenwood  Trading company asked that the  -amount due them because of the expropriation of property refund and the  council decided to pay the amount as  soon as funds are available. The  finance committee were empowered to  secure the printing of the debentures.  The city engineer was instructed to  call for tenders for culverts on Dead-  wood street.  The city engineer reported that Mr.  Wartman had been instructed to" place  two grade stations one at Deadwood  and one at Lincoln street at a cost not  to exceed 530 each.  The police cells have been*~rfpaired  and are now prisoner proof.  The city clerk was allowed $46.65 for  petty cash purposes.  AS; IMPORTANT STRIKE MADE  A Big Ore Body Entered at the 300-Foot Level of the  Mother Lode Mine���Summary of the Work  Do. e and Expenditure to Date.  Last week the pleasing information  was rede vied that the crosscut from  the north drift at the 300-foot level of  the jVIothei Lode mine, in Deadwood  camp, had run into ore. This working  has since been advanced 12 feet and it  still has a full face of ore, which is  cha.lcopyrite in a gangue of magnetic  oxide of'iron. Similar gang tie was not  met with to any great extent in the  several crosscuts that were run through  the big ore  body at the 200-foot level,  LOCAL  NEWS.

Ore  bins with a total holding capacity of  2,500 to 3,000 tons have been constructed; mine buildings to accommodate 75  men  and eijjht cottage residences for  married employes have been built and  more accommodation, is  to be added  shortly.   The total expenditure to date  in purchasing, equipping and developing the Mother Lode group of claims  has   been   about   $220,000,    and    the  further equipment, improvements and  development now in  hand," or to  be  shortly   undertaken,   will    involve   a  further expenditure by the'end. of the  current year of about $70,000.   Then  there is the. expenditure on the company's smelter how being erected at  Greenwood.     This   has   been   to date  about $90,000, and will, before the year  J__2S?s��.h%_-Ll?eachedy_L total ofL$130i000  to 8140,000.     Mine  and. smelter, .consequently, will within the ensuing six  months represent a total expenditure  o f between $4000.000 and $500,000.  The company's head office is in New  York and among its leading shareholders are wealthy men who also hold  large mining and smelting interests in  the United States. Its office in this  province is at Anaconda, which adjoins  Greenwood. Mr. Frederick Keffer,  M. E., is its general manager. Mr.  Paul Johnson, M. E-, who is at present  away on a trip to Europe, is manager  of the smelter and in his absence the  work of construction is being directed  by Mr. Rudolf Lidep, M. E., acting-  superintendent. The Mother L,ode  group of claims consists of the Mother  Lode, Primrose, Tenbrock, Offspring,  Sunflower and Don Julio, all adjoining. They are situate within three  miles" of Gre^woodnffo5rwfiich~town'  a branch railway runs past the smelter  to the mine.  The company's enterprise is one of  most promising in the Boundary  country and it is only one of the many  upon which Greenwood will depend for  its upbuilding and support through the  years of progiess and prosperity that  with such resources must assuredly  lie before it. '  W. L, Hogg and G. E. H. Munroe  left on Saturday for Montreal, visiting  the mines at Butte and the smelters at  Anaconda on their way. Prof. J. T.  Donald also left on Saturday, but he  will visit the coast before returning to  Montreal. Prof. Donald had nothing  to say for publication regarding the  particular object for which he came  here, viz., to give the properties of the  Montreal-Boundary Creek company an  expert examination, he replying that  he could not very well do this until his  report was submitted to the management of the Company. He was enthusiastic, however, regarding the general  mining outlook in the Boundary and  predicts for the district a great future.  Mr, Munroe has a very high opinion of  Greenwood. "It is the cleanest, most  progressive looking town we saw since  leaving Spokane," said he. "There is  nothing more attractive to a visitor nor  more likely to give a good impression  than first-class hotels, well kept streets  and the general appearance of thrift  and progress, ^ My firm is heavily interested in mining in British Columbia  and we believe that in a short time  Boundary Creek will go far towards  down of the War Eagle and other incidents connected with the mining market. After seeing your large ore bodies  I have more confidence  than ever in  the   future   of   the Boundary."    Mr.  Hogg   stated that  he  was more than  satisfied with  the good work done on  the   Sunset since   his  previous visit.  The showings on both  the Sunset aud  Crown  Silver were most encouraging  and his company will continue the development  of   both   properties   on   a  large scale.    The shaft on  the Silver  Crown is down 45 feet and is all in ore.  The ore gives good copper and gold  values.    On  Tuesday last a car of ore  was sent from the Sunset to  the Trail   '  smelter,   the first shipped  from   this  property. -  so it is; possible that a separate shoot  of ore has been cut at the lower level.  But whether or not later developments  show that it is the same ore body on  both levels these important considerations   remain,   that it  has  now been  X '  demonstrated that the ore continues in  quantity at least a hundred feet deeper  in the mine than was disclosed by the  workings at the 200-foot level, arid  what is (more important still, that it  appears to be going down strongly, so  that it is quite reasonable to anticipate  that, as is frequent1}' the case with big  deposits of copper ore, it will live/ to a  considerable depth and so the better  ensure permanence to the mine.  ' The significance of this new development will be qiore adequately recognized when it is remembered that the  development work done to date at the  200-foot level has proved the ore body  to be at that level from 80 to 90 feet in  width aud at least 350 feet in length,  with a prospect of crosscuts now being  jrun show;Ug,.that._anoiher.lO_Qfeet_Px  more will be added ���to its known length  'when these workings shall have been  carried sufficiently far to intersect the  ore if it continues on the course that  seems to be indicated by the completed  crosscuts, The continuation of so large  a body of ore, even should it not extend  beyond the 350 feet in length already  proved, down another 100 feet, means  a material addition to the mine's available supply of ore. That it will continue down is not doubted, since from  the surface to the 200-foot level its  appearance and general character has  been increasingly favorable for permanence and the geological conditions,  so far as known, are such as to encourage, expectation in a* similar direction.  The Times .lately published an article, written for the express purpose of  directing1 attention to the bona fide nature of the operations of the British  Columbia Copper company, limited, of  New York, in connection with the development of .its Mother Lode mine. It  will not be out of place, however, to  here briefly summarize what has already been accomplished and what is  either now in hand or is shortly to Be  undertaken. The preliminary work  done under the direction of Mr. Keffer,  then representing the Boundary Mines  company, which was early in 1898  merged into the British Colt.n^bia.Copper company, was t_*e running of a  crosscut tunn,el 247 feet which showed  the lode to, b,e 185 feet in right angle  width, \vhere cut at a depth of 98 feet  b,elow (he highest point of the outcrop  on the top of the hill. From this tunnel an Incline winze was sunk 99 feet  and at the bottom of the winze a crosscut was run both ways, in all 8" feet.  Some underground work was also done  on the adjoining- Primrose claim,  which is one of the Mother Lode group,  but with no important results. The  existing company was organized in the  spring of 1898 and shortly afterwards  a power plant, the largest up to that  time obtained for use in the Boundary  district, was purchased and sent in.  Two years ago, thoug*h, transportation was attended b,y many difficulties  and delays, and mi*ch expense (the cost  o,f hauling- this plant from Marcus to  the mine was about S3,000), so that it  was not until the fall of 1898 that the  last of the plant was delivered and  installed. Meanwhile the vertical  double compartment shaft now in use  had been sunk to A depth of 40 feet,  so that this  much headway had been   removing the bad impression created  made before steam power for hoisting I in Montreal last winter by the closing  Notice is given in the current issue  of the Gazette of the incorporation of  the Standard Pyritic Smelting company, limited.

Ji  LI/persons, old and young-, should have  their teeth examiued once every six  Months by a competent dentist. Decay  will be present, and tartar forminir, -which  nothing but a thorough examination will ra-  veal. Professional service rendered in time  means high-class work, less pain and great  economy. A tooth filled when decay is slig-ht  will not be sensitive, the operation "not long,  and the filling- lasting, becaase the operator  has more and better structure to work on. He  is enabled to make thc walls of the cavity  thicker and stronger, and with slight danger  of exposing the nerve, the dread and fear of all  when having teeth filled. Have your teeth  attended to iu time. Do not procrastinate.  Give the dentist good tooth-structure to work  upon, and he will render you excellent service.  Many persons put off their visits to the dentist  when sensitive teeth have given freo_uent warning. With mind excited, body in high nervous  tension, and with excruciating pain and suffering plainly written on every feature, they come  for relief. How can the dentist be expected to  perform the best operation when the patient is  inthe worst possible condition toreceivcit? If  your friend is sick do not wait until lie is al-  mbsl dead before you do something for him or  send for the doctor. The doctor may save him  by coming at the last moment, aud should the  patient recover he is liable to have bad health  the remainder of his life on account of not  having received proper attention at the right  time. Likewise, a tooth that is neglected may  be filled and saved at the last moment, but will  probably have bad health the rest of its life.  One person in a hundred has good teeth, ninety  nine persons iu a hundred could have good  teeth with proper attention.  DR. R. MATHISON.

GREENWOOD IS ALL RIGHT.  EvKRY business man should make a  special effort to go away on a trip al  lease once a year. Close application  to business without a vacation or recreation is apt to make him pessimistic  and a believer in the merits of all  towns save his own. Greenwood today  is a much better city than some of its  business men imagine. An outsider  can tell us some home truths that we  do not realize. This was illustrated  the other day when Mr. Munroe came  here from the metropolitan city of  Montreal. He lives in the heart of the  busiest city in Canada. He rubs up  against the busiest of business men and  he has learned to keep his eyes open.  He travelled across the continent and  he came to Greenwood and found good  business houses, good buildings, first  class hotels, well kept streets, good  offices and the same banks as they have  in Montreal. He found a city surrounded by some of thtf largest and  most promising mining camps in the  world, smelters under course of erection. He heard of other mining camps  in thc vicinity of the city that are or  could be made tributary to Greenwood  and he could form only one conclusion,  viz., that Greenwood was most favorably situated as a business center and  had a bright future.  Then, too, commercial men visit  every town in the vicinity. They have  dealings with the business men at different points and they carefully gauge  the prospects for the different centers.  They tell usTtlhatTGreenwood in place1  of being dull is not nearly as dull as  the other towns in the province, that  the city has withstood the .wave of depression better than the sister towns  and that today the outlook here, from  a commercial point of view, is as bright  as that of any town in the province.  And they are right. We enthused  too much over the boom that struck  us in 1897 and have thought that something was wrong when the city settled  down to a solid business basis. Greenwood is all right, so are her business  men. We are passing through a  transition period, from the effervescent  boom to the solid, permanent business  basis. The change may bring some disappointments, but it cannot detract  from the standing nor the future of  the city.  Several complaints have been heard  from those who have been travelling  westward regarding the condition of  the wagon roads. No attempt has  bean made to keep them in a proper state  of repair and consequently there are  places that are dangerous to life and  limb. "This is particularly true of  bridges. Planks have broken in, leav-  holes that are likely to cause ser:ous  injury unless repaired. The authorities should attend to this matter immediately.  TELEPHONIC CUT.

Suggestions are always in order,  says the Greenwood Miner, and the  Miner would suggest that it is about  time the filed started by the Hardy-  Smailes contest for mayor.should cease.  To which thc Times most heartily subscribes. There is absolutely no good  reason why there should be a feud  because people have different opinions  regarding muncipal management.  There arc some men, however, in the  city who are laboring under the impression that they are the offices they  hold and the law regulating tbe same  and that any opinion expressed regarding either is an affront to themselves.  Unless they can get rid of this impression the feud is sure to continue, because it would be detrimental to the  best  interests of the city to refra'.u  V. & N. Telephone Company Cut in  Two Long Distance Rates.  H. W. Kent general superintendent  and Geo. C. Hodge district superintendent of the Vernon & Nelson  Telephone company were in the city  last week. Mr. Kent had not visited  the district for over a year and he expressed himself as being well satisfied  with the increased amount of business secured by his company.  During his visit here, he annonnced  a cut in..long distance rates that will  make the company still more popular.  The reduction cuts the old rate in two.  After to-day the rate for one minute  from Greenwood to _ Rossland or  Nelson will be 55 cents, Greenwood to  Spokane or Republic 50 cents. The  company are confident that the sweeping reduction will secure a freer use tf  the telephone for long distance communications.  The V. & N. are branching out inthe district. Au exchange is being  placed in Phoenix and communication  has also been established with more  mines surrounding the city. Mr. Kent  has also made arrangements to connect  all the mining properties of the Graves  Syndicate with the Granby smelter.  PRINGLE <& WHITESIDE.  Barristers and Solicitors,  Notaries Public, Etc.

Started-live years ago, its progress was  comparatively slow up to the time of  its incorporation in 1897. Since then  it has.. made rapid strides, until today  it may fairly claim to be the metro  polis of the Boundary country. In  support of this claim-it may be advanced that ""it has a population of  about 3,000. In financial matters,  three strong chartered banks have opened branches iu the town and five loan  and investment companies have local  agencies. Commercially it is well provided for,'with a half a dozen mercan  tile- houses d<5iiig business on a comparatively large scale and three times  that number in a smaller.way. In  dustrially it is the center of the largest  lumbering and . sawmilliri'g concern  (operating iii the district, has two  breweries, steam laundry and other industries, the number and variety of  ���which may be gauged by the existence  of a Trades and Labor Council, repre  sentative of the local unions of the  miners,���_ printers, carpenters, tailors,  painters, clerks and plumbers aiid iron  workers. The British Columbia Copper Company's smelter, now approaching completion', is "in immediate p'rox"  imity to the town'-pundit is announced  that the erection. in the neighborhood  of a pyritic smelter will shortly .be  undertaken. - Resident in .the. town,  too, are more members of the professions���medical,'legal, civil and mining engineering, surveying, etc.���than  Jin any other town in the district, It is  at present the terminus of the .Columbia and Western branch of the Can-  radian Pacific Railway system, no passenger .trains as yet running.beyond  here. -Stage lines ruii-hence to Greenwood mining camp in one direction  land in another to the mining districts'  'of the upper main Kettle river and its  - ��� o     ���  ���several  tributaries, Camp McKinney,  Fairview, Similkameen and the Myers  creek and Okanagan camps, south of  the international boundary linc^ Two  telegraph aud two telephone systems,  the latter with outside connections as  well as local exchanges, .and a daily  mail afford means of ready communication. Two newspapers are published,  in the town, which, having wagon  road connectioiiTwiffi^dozeii sifFroutM-*1  ing camps, is most favorably situated  for gathering and disseminating news.  In municipal matters the city has its  own water system, fire, police and  Ichealth departments; has carried out  many street and other public improvements and keeps the town in a gener-  E ally clean and healthy condition. The  |j Dominion government has its resident  customs and inland revenue officers,  whilst the Provincial government,  having made Greenwood the .official  center of the extensive Kettle River  Mining Division, has its resident gold  commissioner, mining recorder, etc.  A Supreme Court registry has been  established and here, too, are regularly  held sessions of the County Court of  Yale, whilst in the town is stationed  as well the chief provincial constable  for the whole Boundary district.  As to religious matters, there are  th tee church buildings erected, three  ministers live in the town aud two  other churches also hold services. A  public school affords oruinary educational facilities. Sports and amusements are provided for, there being  cricket, baseball and football clubs and  a skating rink for outdoor pastimes,  with ��� a theatre aud music hall for indoor public entertainment. A well.,  appointed private hospital furnishes  for the sick an institution where good  medical and surgical attendance and  skilled nursing are alwaj-s available.  Five secret societies have lodges and  other organizations contribute to the  general welfare. Hotel accommodation  includes two or three hotels that wottld  be a credit to a much larger town.  Villa residences are becoming numerous in and around the town.    In fact  the surrounding mines become more  extensively developed, every requisite  for making it a busy commercial and  industrial . centf-'. - a desirable residential place-and a profitable field for  the investment of capital.  In reviewing the prospects and condition of the mining industry of tlie-  Boiiiid'iry Creek District it is necessary  to direct alien ti6n to several facts  tending to show that a comparison  with the older and better developed  mining districts would not be fair.to  the former unless due allowance were  made for the attendant circumstances  unfavorableto it. The lack of railway  transportation facilities has heretofore  involved heavy and almost prohibitory  freight charges on machinery, plant,  materials and mine stores. Power  plants in use at its mines are consequently of comparatively small capacity anil development work has  necessarily been slow, the more so  since the data necessary for the advantageous working of the mines can be so  speedily obtained where big bodies of  generally low grade ore-have to be  opened, up. Then whilst the branch  railway Hues to several of the principal  mines have lately been .completed, the  smelter at Greenwood is still only  under construction and that at Grand  Fork's,-though about ready for blowing  in, is-, but now being connected by rail  with the mines'. Further, the district  has not yet; except in two, or three in-  instances, had the benefit of the expenditure of any considerable'amount  of outside capital. .So it has resulted  that, with, only a limited amount of  capital available, actual mining opera-  . tions have been much restricted, whilst  the absence of suitable transportation  and smelting facilities have greatly retarded progress. The prospect -for  eaily improvement are, however, very  encouraging. With transportation and  ore reduction needs largely provided  for, several of the mines settling down  upon a producing basis and so en  couragiiig the further expenditure of  capital for their adequate equipment  aiid more extensive-operation, the contemplated early resumption of work on  properties that have been closed down  and the general'local experience, that  values improve with.depth,- the outlook  is becoming increasingly satisfactory.  "Within a radius of about eight miles  of-Greenwood there are a dozen mining camps, in each of which numerous  mineral claims have been located. Of  tliese camps there are five, that as a result of the'comparatively large amount  '{Continued on Piuto 4.).-  GREENWOOD.  Service for the year 1900  will be commenced JUNE  10th.

These are Deadwood, Greenwood (also  known as Phoenix), Summit, Wellington and Central (or White's) camps.  Taking-them in the order named, Dead-  wood claims first notice. Its principal  mines are the Mother Lode, Sunset,  Morrison and Buckhorn, all copper-  gold properties. Among numerous  other claims are the Ah There, Greyhound, Great Hopes, Marguerite, the  D.

The Mother Lode  has two 60-horse power boilers, one  large and two small hoisting engines,  a straight line air compressor, five machine drills, steam pumps, electric  light plant, safety cage and other mine  equipment. Preparation is now being made to install at this mine a much  larger plant, including two 100-horse  power boilers, a Corliss air compressor  of 30 to 40 drills capacity, two iron  safety platform cages and all requisite  accessories. TheSiiuset plant includes  two 80-horse power boilers, half of a  20-drill duplex air compressor, ten machine drills, one large and one small  hoisting engine, safety cage, etc. The  Buckhorn has an 80-horse power boiler,  half of a ten-drill duplex air compressor, 20-lio.rse; power hoisting engine,  etc. ..The three remaining-plants are  smaller.  The deepest shaft in the camp is  that on the Mother Lode, depth 325  feet. The ore bodies appear to be  large, the Mother Lode vein was re-  crosscut in three places at the 200-foot  level, showing 90 feet of good ore,  along a distance of 350 feet. Large  veins of ore have also been cut on the  Morrison arid the Sunset. There are  about 120 men employed in the camp to  which a branch of the C. P. R. has  been extended.  As in many of the other camps, the  ore here is principally chalcopyrite,  carrying also gold and silver values,  although a few of the well-known  properties show but little copper, and  consist of nearly all iron pyrites,  carrying good gold values. Some of  the ore bodies are of large extent and  high assay value. This will undoubtedly become one of the great copper-  ���_goldicanipsi.of, British ..Columbia.^ ^_^.  GREENWOOD  CAMP.  This  camp   has had more  develop-  riient work done in it to date than any  other camp iu the district.    Its  principal   properties are the   Miner-Graves  group,   including   the   Old Ironsides,  Knob  Hill,   Victoria,  Grey Eagle; the  Dominion   Copper   Co.'s   group,   the  most important claims of which are the  Brooklyn,    Stemwinder,   Idaho    and  Rawhide;   and   the   Snowshoe,    Gold  Drop and War Eagle, each owned by a  separate company.   Other   promising  claims in this camp are too numerous  to   detail   here.   Greenwood   camp   is  noted   for    its   big     deposits���which  may without any  exaggeration be described   as   enormous���of copper-gold  ore.   Values do not yet, as a rule, run  high, the average value,  for instance,  of   more than  a  million tons of   ore  blocked out in   the Knob Hill, having  been placed by the mining- superintendent, at $8.37.    In nearly all cases with  any   depth  the ore shows   a   general  sameness of  appearance,   i.   c.,  chalcopyrite with hematite (micaceous iron)  and some iron pyrites, mixed with cal-  cite and some  quartz i'n   a   greenish,  eruptive   rock,   showing   considerable  alteration   and   sometimes   having   a  schistose   structure.      In   some   cases  the   ore  bodies  along their  trend are  capped    with     magnetic    iron    oxide  through which is disseminated in varying quantities (though as  a rule small  percentages), copper pyrites.    The ore  bodies appear to occur in contact with  lime   and  diorite  that have a general  northerly and southerly trend and an  easterly   dip.    Some of   the   ores are  self-fluxing   and   all are adapted for  smelting.   The number of feet of de*  No.  of  Shares.

With the exception of  the Idaho and  Rawhide, all the above named  Greenwood camp mines are.worked by power  7 plants.   The Miner-Graves  properties  -are together  eg.lipped   with   three 80-  horse power boilers, a 10-drill duplex  air compressor, seven hoisting-engines,  seven pumps for various purposes, 12  machine drills, au electric lighting- engine and dynamo and a lot more plant.  i .Another: 10-iirili  air compressor   and  ��� ytwbymbVcj 80-hoi-se ;povver boilers have  'been-ordered and itliese" will" shortly be  installed on the Knob Hill.   TheSno*v-  shoe,   already .supplied   with   an   air  comprcbsor, three machine drills, loco-  ' motive boiler, steam hoist, pump, etc.,  'is adding  to   its   present   plant  a  70-  horsc power boiler and two more drills.  'The'Gold Drop has a locomotive boiler,  four drill   air compressor   and   three  machine drills, and the War Kagle has  a   similar  plant  to that on thc Buckhorn.    The Brooklyn  and Stemwinder  have three boilers, a five drill air compressor, two steam hoists, pumps, etc.  Thc  Old Ironsides No. 2 shaft, now  : down 400 feet,* is the deepest shaft in  '  thc district and the  Stemwinder. shaft  is 325 feet in depth.    Some 200 men are  ,   on the pay roll  in this camp and ah  early   increase,   by   at^ least   50,   is  promised.   Branch railways have been  laid   to the Old Ironsides and Knob  '  Hill   mines',"   both  of which  are now  maintaining regular daily  shipments  * of about 125 tons of ore to the Granby,  smelter at Grand Forks.   These mines  have large and comfortable  bunk and  boarding .houses for their men, besides  a number ot cottages for the families  of married employees.  SUMMIT CAMP.  Summit camp also contains numerous mineral locations.'^ Prominent  among these is the B. C., which is considered to be one of the most promising mines in the Boundary country.  The ore body is very wide and consists  of solid copper pyrites and pyrrhotite,  carrying from 10 to 16 per cent, copper a.nd'8 to 10 ounces silver per ton.  It has sent out to date about 5000 tons  of ore and is shipping its daily output  of 70 tons, taken from stopes at the 150-  foot levet*ahd from its development  .- workings in other parts of'.the mine.'  Its working shaft is 272 feet in depth.  Three distinct shoots of ore have been  ^.exposed by the work done so. far and  " those yield ore of a higher average  value than, that met with iri'some of  the other /.camps of the district ^The  planFoFtheTB7rC/ incindes fotfiri"boilers^  together about 225-h6t*se power, a  straight line Rand four-drill'air.cbm.  pressor, half of a Class G.

The  plant at : the Oro Denoro includes  . boiler, air compressor, machine drills,  hoisting engine and steam pump. The  Maple Leaf, one of the Rathmtillen  group of claims, is similarly equipped,  and a small; power plant is now installed on the R. Bell. Other well-  known claims in Summit camp are the  Emma, Mountain View, Cordick, Josie,  Wake arid half a dozen others. The  development . work includes the following:  Name of Property  B.

Branch lines connect tl*is camp with  the C. P. R- main line at Eholt. There  are about 70 men on thc B. C. mine  pay roll and a f��w are employed at the  R. Bell. Other properties will resume  work shortly, so the number of men  employed in the camp will then be  larger. Summit camp is eight miles  from Greenwood. North of Summit  camp about two miles is Pass creek,  along which some noteworthy dis-  coveries.of copper have been made.  ���"������'-   , WELLINGTON CAMP.  In this camp there are four properties at work, the Athelstan, Winnipeg, Golden Crown and Hartford. Thc  number of feet -done in development is  as under:  Name of Property  Athelstan   Winnipeg..;...."...  Golden Crown  Hartford   Sinking  and  Raising.

Both have  run drifts and crosscuts at several  levels down to the 300-foot, and both  report an ore vein over 30 feet in  width at that depth. Both mines have  sent ore to the smelter. That from  the Winnipeg returned values up to  S22 per ton, whilst Golden Crown ore  is stated to run higher. Both are  equipped whh steam boilers, hoists and  pumps, air com pressors, machine drills,  etc. The Athelstan also has a power  plant, but of smaller capacity. The  country rock here is of a dark felds  pathic nature, while some of the principal ore-bodies occur in gabbro,"which  appears in quite extensive areas and  in the case of the Winnipeg vein the  enclosing rock is serpentine; this, however, is merely an altered gabbro..  The ore in this camp is chiefly pyrrhotite near the surface, but as depth is  gained it becomes silicious and carries  higher gold values. Between 40 and  50 men are employed in the camp.  CENTRAL CAMP.  In Central camp are several properties considered very promising that  have been idle for some time These  include. No. 7, Mabel, Oro, Cornucopia  and others. The City of Paris and  Majestic groups are being operated  under one management. The former  has shipped more than 1,500 tons of ore  to the Granby smelter. It is sending  out about 25 tons of ore per day and  will shortly increase its shipments to  40 tons daily. The two mines together  get their power from the same plant,  which includes two 80-horse power  boilers, a 10-drill duplex air compressor, six machine drills, steam hoist,  pump, etc. About 50 men are employed at the mines besides a number  of freighters engaged in hauling ore  to Grand Forks. The following is the  chief development work done in this  camp: *  Name of Property  City of Paris-  Majestic    No 7 :.

Of the  first class, the ore occurs in veins up to  ten feet in width and gives assays up  to $80 .in gold and 200 ounces in silver  per ton.

These are situate in the immediate  vicinity of Greenwood, Narrow veins  of ore, rich in gold and silver, are the  chief characteristics of these camps.  Ore has br-cn shipped from the Providence, St r.thmore, Last Chance and  Skylark claims, the values returned  being generally comparatively high.-  The East Chance is equipped with a  steam power plant.  SMITH'S   CAMP.   __  Iu Sriiith's camp quartz ores prevail,  values being in gold and silver. The  Republic group of four claims has had  the most work done on it in this camp.  The Boundary Falls and neighboring  claims occasionally show free gold.  The American Boy, Ruby and Golconda group, the last named having  arsenical iron and copper ores, are  other well-known claims. The ores in  this camp occur in veins from one foot  to eight feet wide, giving good values,  and in some cases,  high silver values.  COPPER CAMP.  Copper camp has immense -surface  showings of copper ore,' but as yet only  a very limited amount of development  work has been done in the ,camp, the  principal claims in which are the Big  Copper and King Solomon. There is  a small steam power plant ou the latter claim. The copper deposits here  occur in contaot with lime and porphyry and show large surface outcrops  of iron oxide (red hematite) and quartz.  In some cases native copper, cuprite  and copper glance are distributed  through this capping, more or less uniformly. Some excellent copper values  are obtained in this camp.

Interesting Letter From the  Pen of J. J. Miller.  FORMERLY OF GREENWOOD  He Tells of the Famous Mining Camp  in the Far North���A Good Place  to Keep Away From.  J. J. Miller, well known to many  residents of Greenwood as the manager of the International hotel, has  written an interesting- letter to Geo. D.  ' Ley son :f rom Cape Nome. Mr. Miller  says:  "Nome City, Alaska, July 1, 1900.  "Geo%D..Eeyson; j  "Greenwood, B. C.  "Friend Geo:���It is now the bewitching- hour of 12 midnight and I am  sitting outside of the tent writing this  letter with" no other light than which  our land df the midnight situ furnishes  ' us, for it is just as light as day, there  is no time in the twenty-four hours  that it is the least bit dark at  this sea-  "sbhr* "Welly-Georger'this^is^a^great  country, and with all my experience in  mining camps I am at a loss'what to'  think of it for it i.s certainly a guess at  the present writing. There have come  in here in the last 40 days all of 15,000  people and two-thirds of them did not  know what they came for; you would  see men get off the steamer and as  soon as they got ashore they would  would take their gold pan and commence looking for gold on the beach,  of course they found none, they they  would curse the country and. the  steamer, the captain, boatswain and  everybody else for bringing them here;  like the Irishman that went several  miles up the beach where there is some  gold, he took out a panfull of dirt and  looked at it and said, 'It is just as I expected���half sand.'  "I arrived here nine days ago at 3 a.  ni. and it was a sight I never expect to  see again. It was as light as day and  I counted 35 large steamers and 60  schooners, it looked like New York  harbor. We anchored two milesvfrom  shore, and then to look Nome from  that distance was another great sight,  for as far up and down the beach as  you could see, it was tents, shacks,  boats turned into houses, and million  of dollars worth of mining machiery,  household goods and every conceivable  thing you could imagine that would be  taken into a mining camp. I certainly  can not explain to you so you could  realize one-half of it; the streets were  lined with people, men and women  looking for their belongings or some  place to eat or sleep, it was sure enough  Pandemonium. It was almost impossible to get a place to lay your blankets,  Jet  alone  a bunk, but now  a   great  many of the cold-foot gentry have  gone and they are building very fast,  they put up a two-story house here  25x100 in three days for they can work  24 hours a day and there is at* present  plenty of carpenters and lumber here.

A  large number of claims have been located, but as yet development has gone  on in a small way, no large companies  having taken hold of it. The ore here  is heavy sulphides (copper andiron),  and some pyrrhotite.  In West Copper camp, nine miles  northwest of Greenweod, a number of  claims have been located. The ores  are arsenical pyrites in a silicious  gangue, giving gold assays up to $36  per ton.  Very promising camps are being  opened up on the North Fork and on  the Main Kettle river. In the vicinity  of Beaverton, on the West Fork, are  some exceptionally fine showings and  development work is being carried on  actively. At Canyon creek, on the  Miin Kettle, there are extensive deposits of mispickle; on the north of  this again is the Lottie F., a very rich.  copper prospect. The whole of the  country referred to is still in its infancy, from a mining point of view,  but is attracting a great deal of deserved attention, and numerous miners  and prospectors are going in.   .      -  Approximate���number Of men employed in connection with mining ih  the Boundary:  Camp. . ��� .
