Fairview Happenings.
(From our own correspondent,)
The return of Mr. Atwood tlie well
known mining export has given new
life to the camp, aud we have every
reason now lo believe that Hie claims
held by the Strathyre mining company
will be given a fair trial and that ore
will not he run through the mill in
little odd driblets of two or three tons.
Mr. Atwood is accompanied by another
expert Mr. W. Hamilton Merrill F. G.
S. of Toronto, who was at one lime
one of the applicants for a charter for
a railway from Kamloops to Osoyoos
by way of Ihe Siinilkaineen valley.
Both gentlemen are staying in the
camp and nre kept bnisy superintending preparations for work, assaying
samples from various claims and getting thlugs generally into shape for
business, They will probably visit
Camp McKinney and the Boundary
camps shortly.
The w.iler is being pumped out of
tbe shaft of Ihe Brown Bear, It was
over forty feet deep.
Mr. Moffat is now quite convalescent.

rail! of about Ijiil lo Ibe pound or $0,000
per Ion. A few thousand Ions of such
ore would place any man beyond the
reach of poverty, or the Kamloops
