SIMPLY  OVERWHELMING.
That Is What J. P. Whitney Says of
the Ore Bodies In Phoenix Camp.
,1. P, Whitney, a Philadelphia glass
iiiaiiufacliirer, who owns the largest
interests iu the Oily of Paiis and
Ginnhy group uf mines, paid a visit lo
Ilie iMiiierGnives' properties at Phoenix, a few days agn and was greatly
astonished at the enormous slum ings
mid Ilie amount of development done
in ili.it group uf mines. Mr. Whitney
said :
"1 can almost regard myself as one
f the pioneer in vestnis in this districl,
whose richness was first repreHcnicd
to me by Mr. Graves in 181)7, Th" following yenr I paid ii my first visil and
wns I hen convinced Ilml the half lunl
iml lieen told. This is my thhd trip,
as I also can e west iu 18W), One can
scarcely credit tlie progress and development of the pasl lliree years. The
present site uf Phoenix was a primeval
foi est in 181)8, and the mines there
were litlle mure than 'prospects.' The
Old Ironsides shaft had then only attained a depth of 1(K) feel. Besides the
mining bunk house which Mr. Graves
had just completed there were only
twn oilier buildings, Uuinberger's
hnlel and a shack.
I was simply overwhelmed wilh
amazement when I traversed the enormous slopes, lunnels, galleries and
shells of the Knoh Hill, Old Ironsides,
Victoria mid Grey Eagle, all of which
in e connected. The amount of ore iu
siglu is so ureal thai to liegin lo figure
ii uut is in become involved in inured
ilei" mul hopeless calculations. If one
were to submit. 31) per cent, of the esti
male, his statement wnuld be regarded
as exaggerated and chimerical, Hence
I will nut dabble in tlie higher mathematics. Afler visiting the Treadwell
mine, and speaking frnm a knowledge
nf other greal properties, 1 feel safe ill
erling that lhe Granby group has
the largest ore reserves of auy mine or
mining group nu file continent,
•TheGranhy smeller has the must
perfect plain I ever inspected. What
with self'fluxing ores and labor-saving
devices, treal ment charges must lie
reduced almost I" a minimum. What
especially impressed me was the small
nilier <if Hlun employed, considering
lhe quantity of ore treated daily.
Willi an enlaigid plant. I shall look
fnr still better results, because the
larger the (mlput nf any plant the
greater the economies that can he
effected, based on previous experience.
N'u mining region in existence has so
many advantageous factors to ensure
cheapness nf mining and smelting.
British Columbia was almost, un
known in the eastern slates a few
years ago, Imt already a growing interesl in ynnr mineral resources is being
displayed. Quite a number nf Phila-
delphians have innde investments iu
the Boundary, which, of course, is nnl
as well known as Oolot ado or California. However, a few years more will
bring (he province into pruinineiice."

Exploring the Rockies.
Field, B. V.. Aug. 2B.-Mr. Whym-
per's parly relurned here on the evening of the 23rd frnm a ninnt.h'sexploration of the Yoho valley and contiguous
country, A preliminary examination
frnm Gaihedral iiioiiiiiain showed thnt
a new and easy route up lhe valley
could be made by keeping on high
ground;;Instead nfai the bottom. This
course was adopted and a new trail
made on .Inly 3dl.li, the parly deseeding iuln an unexplored and attractive
vnlley leading uff the main valley tn

suggested for this.
On the Hist two peaks were ascended
al the head of Upper Yolio valley and
two passes discovered, one a glacier
pass leading nciiiss the Emerald group
In Field and the olher trending west
ward. On August Hid Whymper and
Kluckei walked ihrough from Upper
Yoho valley to Field in ten hours by
the glacier pass and relurned to the
camp on August 7th. Ou the 8th they
crossed ly the pass frnm Upper Ynlin
valley into an entirely new valley, fnr
which lhe name nf Verdant valley is
suggested, mid got Into Field in 17
hunts from camp via lhe north branch.
On the 14th an ascent was made nf
the mountain called Insulated peak tn
inspect the high motmtaiiis of the
VVaputtaelik range.
Mount Hahel. sometimes called Hid

OKANAGAN FRUIT
Hal the Preference in the Territories
—Report of Inspector R.
M.  Palmer,
Ir, Ii. M. Palmer, fruit Inspector,
and ('. P, It. speciai freight rales coin-
missiouer, has relurned from n visit to
Winnipeg, made fnr I lie purpose uf
Investigating market conditions iu
Manitoba for B, 0, fruits.
in regard tn his iiivestigaiinus inin
the transportation of I'i nit, he luis (lis.
covered I lint the fees charged un thn
('. P. It. are inure favorable than those
iu vogue over lhe United Slales lines.
Fruits can be shipped to Winnipeg anil
pnints en route for $1 pur hundred
weight, while fnun Washington $1.25
is charged, frnm Oregon $1.40, and
frnm California $1.1)11. The rales In
Calgary are still more favorable ovec
the Canadian road, hul. uu American
roads tu this point nu reduction is
made. The nnly advantage which thu
California roads possess over that of
Ihe C. P, It. is in the fact thai it luu
made ils fruit business a dislincf and
separate feature ; but this advantage
will not long be enjoyed over iis Canadian rival. The C. P. K. conipnny is
not only arranging for an improved
sei vice, hul fnr a more frequent one.
Icing facilities will be provided, su
I hat shippers will be furnished wilh
the most modern and improved accommodation,
Sn far as the inaikets in the Northwest are concerned, Mr. Palmer re*
purls that up till the present they have
been poorly supplied ; in lhe first place,
e thinks, because of the Strike in San
Francisen, and in tlie second because1
of the shortage of the fruit cinps in
the F.u-t lasl yenr. mid il, seldom bap
pens that there nre two heavy yields
111 succession. Then, um, i lie sprint,' in
tlie Easl was backward, nnd this may
have lieen responsible for the poor
crops, which are not only short in
Canada, hul in the eastern and middle
slates as well. The result is lhat Winnipeg and other places in Manitoba
and the t'prtbwest Territories are
looking westward foi' Iheir supplies,
and high prices are likely to lie realized
These towns are most, eager lo secure
tlie output nf the Okanagan country
this fall; bin while tliis i.s the case, and
these places aro even waiting lo obtain their supplies fnun Ihnt country,
Kontenay is alsn iu ihe field, and looking tn the same district fnr fiuit. Ir.
will thus lie a question of who pnj.-i
most. The Okanagan fruil haiii splendid reputation fur quality, and the
packers in the towns nf Vernon and
Kelowna are winning for themselves
enconiiims for the way the fruit is
heingshipped and prepared fnr market.

over the result, as il means harmony
and progress where antagonism and
discord formerly prevailed. All classes
nf citizens will now Unite in building
up a great mining, roi'iuierolal and

The credit of effecting unialgauial Ion

The fact that we send miiiey to China

un argument when advanced in favor
of the employment of Chinese in this

want our laboring classes lo gn to China and compete with the Chinese;   As
long us the Chinamen stiy in China

Very much pleased wiih the assistance
given liim iu Iiis work by Secretary (!.
W, Pearson and other niemheis of ihe
Territorial Horse Breeders' Association, particularly Oapt. Inglis mid
Messrs. \V. It. Stewart, J. A Turner
and (i. S. Hoddard, From the know*
ledge gained by a personal inspection
nf the lending horse-breeding districts
of the Northwest and British Culuni-
bin, he is inclined lo think that a future visit might be much more pi otitic-
live nf results than Ihis bus been.
(.'nl. Dent considers ihal a great deal
of Impriiveuitml might be made in
breading the right i In-s of mures, and
using athorobrcd stallion, It. would
also ureal I y facilitate the business if
Ineeders wnuld devote more intention
to having their horses better broken in,
so that they would be handier and
more tractable. Cnl. Dent also recommends that ii law be passed similar to
i but in force in Kngland, compelling
tlie railway companies to properly
clean nnd disinfect all stock cars after
eid) shipment.
The following is n statement of the
number uf horses purchased in tlie
Nnrihwestnnd British Columbia by
('nl. Denl, will) I lie prices paid fur each
clnss of horse, and the lotal amount
