lo lbe elec:nrs of Fust Yale, He said
lie did not. think that theie could lie
found nne inanin the whole constituency who would suy that the region
lind lieen treated fairly by the govern
inenl.
The motion was aboul to be pul to a
vote wilbout an expiessinnof approval
from the government side of the
hnuse. when Mr. Cotton rose and said
llnil. surely the government did not.
inlend In igiiurc lhe tnutinn. Surely
it's sense nf juslice had not liecome exhausted so soon. The goveriiinenl had
suid that it, had seen the justice of the
I mil ion and led llie liiiusc to believe
Imi il was going In ncl on thai. Tliere
could be no reason why il. should nol
respond heartily to llie boiini-ulilc
nitintlier fur east \-;i!e. Whut justice
was there in joining a pari of East
Yale to Rossland? li wasan unnatural
union. Tlie livo dislricls were separated by boundaries whicli gave llieni
nothing in i-oiiiniuii with Pitch other.
It had been an argument of I he govern-
incut members iu support of lhe hill
ihul constituencies were divided because nalurul obstacles sl.nnd in the
way pf justice being dune to them by
one representative. He Would like In
hear what jiisfilicnlinn the government

bailee Iiiiiii strangling the voices uf
llle peuple nf 1*1.isl Yale.
Ibm. M. Kbci-ts replied llml Hnssliind

Tlle honorable gentlemiinivho bad just
sal down had claimed lhat lhe government was strangling the voices uf Ibo
people of Ensl Ynle, lue il was n matter of expediency Ihal the Grand
Furks country should be token intu

that tlm people I hereof, when they
eonii' to lunk seriously and properly
inlo (be divisinn, would llml it. a very
happy one indeed,
Mi. Cnilnii said llml the Honorable
Attorney-General must be very hard
up for iirgiuni'tiln when be would give

wus shipped to the smelter, giving
$103,15 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 nzs,,
nnd 2 per eenl, lend. A tunnel is lining
driven tin this vein from which ore is
lining inkcn. On the same property Is
it larger vein (quurlz) currying galcnn
nnd pyrites.
Tlie "(I. A. H." has a 30-fool shnfl
sunk tin it 2-foot vein, licnyily mineralized Willi nn intimate mixture of iron
ntnl copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglaiice. Tin* fi nest piceesof wire silver found oiiBoundaryOreek were taken
from lliis shaft. Average nssuvs from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gnld. 50 oz-. silver! also $8,00
gold unil l*i(l ozs. silver nud one, the
latesl return—$15.05 gold und IRQ 4-6
uzs. silver per ton.
On the "llig Ledge" is a 10-foot,
quartz vein, mineralized with irun
pyrites. Tins vein hns lieen opened
up liy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet.    A  narrower   vein   has   l n
opened up, lieing one fool wide, carry-
ill*] considerable copper pyriles, nnd
runs inlo the main ledge us u spur, mi
which a tunnel nf 40 feet lias heeu
driven. Average ussuys gave $1111 gold
uiui 1 l-lii ozs. silver, and $40.85gold
17J nzs. silver, 2 pel eenl. copper
The "S. !•'." lies l.elw I tiled. A. II
and I). A., in llic direction ol tin* strike
,ui llicG. A. II. vein. This locution luis
lieen iniiile on a vein of pyrrltotitu,
The "O. B." has two distinct veins I
one 25 feet wide wliieli, frnni its slrike
nnd general character wuuld seem lo
lie the suine vein as llial nn the Big
Ledge, although sufficient hus not
lieen done to make this conclusive,
The second vein lias ai present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $1.0(1
lo $170,53,!wliilc a conservative sampling hy) Mr. ti. ti. Fowler, M, E. gave
$20.00 iu gold.
OiOhc "S. II. B." are two ennverg-
| ing veins of clipper nnil iron pyriles,
tin which wnrk is now lieing done. An
average assay gave, gold $1,60, silver
10} ozs., copper 11.IHI per eenl., or
$40.44 for all values,
The "Fred II." was locnled in De
ceiuliet'i 1805, more, ns ground for a
luisis for milling operations fnr fhe
other claims than for its presenl value,
although there is little doulil thai the
large vein on lhe 0. B. runs through
it, Tliere is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
Tlie ".I. A. C." lias a large Iron-
capping running through it frnni the
Anaconda, tit a deplh of u few feel.
