People in the Boundary district
have been called upon to say '.'good
bye" to a large number ot young
men and  hereafter   the, war  will
have a new interest to them.    Ife
will probably be some weeks yet
before the first contingent that left
in Angus* will be in  the danger
2one and several months before the
second contingent will be sent to
the front but that does not diminish
the bravery of the boys who have
gone, and many, of them would  be
glad to get to   tbe   battle line at
once.    It ought at least to be some
comfort to the friends and relatives
to know   that;  the boys are not
being sent over as   mere   targets,
but that they will receive , a careful training that will fife them mors
effectually-to take care of them-
selvps and   render   more efficient;
service to the empire.    If the war)
is      prolonged     the      young
men from  the  Boundary  country
will find themselves  in  the firing
line and we are sure they will   reflect credit   upon   themselves and
the district in the hour of test. To
frieuds   and   relatives   who   have
seen the  boys   go   away,  citizens
generally will  extend every sympathy and congratulation  and will
hope for their safe return, but if it
be otherwise there will be the comfort that the sacrifice was made id
a good cause.    Macauly puts it;
To every man upon fehis earth
Death cometh soon or late
And bow can man die better
Than facing fearful odds .
For the ashes of his fathers
And the temple of his Gods.

how to make contributions to this

At the time of organizing this

to have lists posted up in the two
banks "where subscriptions will be

There will be no personal canvass as this Fund is nofe a matter
of charity, bufe it is a means of affording everyone the privilege of

say; "Ife is nofe true that Germany
caused the war. Neither Kaiser

were made feo ward it off." These
statements afe evidently "made in

We are told by another   university professor thafe the war is fitted
for us  "if  we

way behind the newspapers in expressions of loyalty.
When the Russian ' forward

Mr. McCracken, who for tbe

For the past few years Mr. McCracken has faithfully and well

his ability. He has often left
his pleasures to give a few minutes time to the urgent needs of
some of our, business men. and
during bis stay in the city he has
been an asset to the community.
The C.P.R. has figured-it out
that there is not enough work
here to warrant the keeping of
'wo offices in tbe city, so they decided to move Mr. McCracken and
from now on Mr. McPherson will.

The first customs officer in fehe
Boundary district was frozen to
death. He left Rock Creek one
cold day in 1862 for Osoyoos. An
Indian boy by the name of
Jim accompanied him. Some years
later Jim was shot to death in
Oroville. Baker had a bottle of
whiskey when they rode out of Rock
Creek, and Jim tried to prevent
him from sipping it, but without
avail. When they arrived where
Bridesville now stands Baker insisted upon camping and the Indian
boy rode on alone to Osoyoos. The
next day two packers found the
dead and frozen body of Baker.
His dog was sitting on his dead
master and howling, while the
snow was decorated with an empty
whiskey bottle and the burnt ends
of many matches. The packers
put the corpse on a horse and wifeh
It sitting bolt npright they rode to
Rock Creek where they planted
the remains of the frozen man in
the crude cemetery of the camp.
Boundary Placers.
THE RICHEST PAN.
More than 50 years ago a placer
miner built a very substantial
cabin near the mouth of Rock
Creek. He made adobe bricks and
built a chimney with two fire
places. The work was well done
and fehe prospector had evidently
learned the brick laying trade. He
also built a large cellar underneath
the building. For years the building was used as a store. One night
it burned down, all but the chimney. This was left standing and
as the fire had changed the adobe
into real bricks, a new building
was built around and to the standing chimney. In 1873 Price &
Nicholson kept a store in fehis
building selling all kinds of goods
for fur and gold dust. They con-
tinnually packed goodB from June
to November over the Hope trail.
Price was fond of Bass' Ale, and
so was the Judge. In order to
satisfy their desire for the amber
fluid they imported 24 cases from
England in 1875, storing half of it
afe their store in Keremeos, and the
balance underneath the shop at
Rock Creek. One fine morning
the Judge heard a great crash, and
making his way to the cellar he
found thafe owing to the rotten condition of the uprights the shelves
bad given way, flooding the place
with ale and broken bottles. Only
six bottles were saved intact. This
was a ead sight for the Judge and
his partner, but let us draw a veil
over thafe calamity of fehe early
days.
A man with a lantern was
sent into the cellar, to carry out
the dead marines, put in new posts
and shelves, and sprinkle fehe floor
with Florida water. While digging
a hole for a new post he saw gold
glittering in the light of the lantern. He took a handful and
showed it to the Judge. Mr.
Nicholson filled a pan with the dirt
_carrying.��� theu yellow stuff, and
washed it in the creek. Thafe was
the richest pan of gold ever panned
in Rock Creek. It went $857 to
the one pan. The Chinamen
standing around became excited
and obtaining permission they
cleaned up the cellar and secured
$150. Pieces of rotten buckskin
proved that the find was a forgotten
cache. The gold was different
from that found along Rock Creek
and evidently had come from
Idaho. Okanagan Smith, of Osoyoos claimed the gold saying thafe
he had been robbed of thafe amount.
ThiB did not go with the Judge for
��� he simply wrote a brief letter to
Smith saying "FinderB keepers."
Fifty years ago the Boundary district had a greater population than
it;has today, all owing tojthe placer
diggings on Rock and Boundary
creeks. In 1SG0 there were 12
saloons, 7,999 men and one woman
at Rock Creek. There is still
plenty of gold in the creeks of the
Boundary. Ife ia reported that pay
dirt exists on Norwegian creek
near Greenwood. Chiuamen have
been working all this Reason on
Rock Creek, and on the south fork
of that stream, Jimmy Copland
has washed gold all summer. It
must pay for Uncle Jim is a Scotchman, and the oldest placer miner
in B.C., having shoveled gravel at
Hill'sJBar on the Fraser in 1858.
Near the House of Blazes, which
is less than two miles from Tom
Hanson's comfortable hotel, a
local Rock Creek syndicate has
leased half a mile along the creek.
A flume to drain the ground will
be put in this fall, and next spring
the diggings will be thoroughly
prospected. The Boundary, is
full of gold but it cannot walk.
Kaslo-Slocan
The various schemes for getting
the gold out of the Lardo river at
Goldhill appear to be iu financial
difficulties again.
It is expected that the incorporation of the Cork-Province Mines,
Ltd., will take place iu the course
of the next month or six weeks.
Some delay has been occasioned on
account of the winding up of the
old Province company.
Ten inches of clean galena has
been opened up on tho California,
on the Slocan side of the divide,
according to the Record. The property is under lease to J. C. Winter and Martin Jacobson. They
had about decided to quit a couple
of weeks ago but were induced to
continue. $10,000 was netted from
a lease on the same proverty a few
years ago.
The first really serious attempt
to develop the ore possibilities of
Poplar is being made at the Calumet and Hecla, a Victoria syndicate having a bond on the property and running in a cross-cut tunnel which is expected to give a
depth on the vein of six or seven
hundred feet. This property is
said to have good surface showings
of gold bearing ore.
The Bluebell mine is being un-
watered by a siphon arangement,
water coming down from the pipe
line under high pressure, and by
force of suction, taking the water
out of the mine also. By last week
the mine had been unwatered to
the first level and ife was intended
to extend the pipes so as to clear
oufe the remaining levels. The
plan works very well during a shut
down and costs nothing beyond
the outlay for the necessary piping.
