lbe Bodle Claim will be Worked on
in Extensive Scale  During the
Comlnt Winter-Other Claim*
that are Coming Into
Prominence.
The Bodie mine nn Toroda creek in
to he wntked on an  extensive scale
during the coming  winter.   A  man
who n  well  versed   in   mining,  in
a    recent     interview   had     -Mime
Intrrming fact* to tell.   He aald ;   '|
consider that teclion a very promising
one.   There hm I een a good deal of
work done nn half a dozen properties,
though hh far   hut little  is actually
kt.own ahout th-tn.   Il seems prole
ahle, however, that hefore the close of
the rnniing winter a oumtssr will he in
an advanced stage of development.   In
t he first years of  mining there, some
shafl 'urk was done, hut none (if the
workings were sunk  to a sufficient
depth to more than determine the dip
and course uf the ledges and show that
ihey rat-Tied value,   Within the past
year, however, the owners of half a
dosen prospects have heen doing good
work hi the direction uf turning them
iuto inines.
"The moat promising ot these Is Ihe
Bodle. There has heen nne shaft sunk I
on Ibe ledge almut :10 feet, and the
ledge was then crosscut, showing
shout t-n feet of good looking quarts,
carrying more or less mineral and some
of it giving high assays. A new shaft
is being sunk almut 100 feet mirth,
which is about 50 feet deep. This
carries nre of high grade, a considerable part nf which will pay fnr shipping crude. Arr.ingements have been
made to ship 100 tuns in Midway, B.C.,
and if this test fhipment i rnves that
it can br shipped with profit others
will follow during the winter.
The shaft will be continued down
until ll imersertathe tunnel to ventilate t' ■ .'ne. The ma tunnel has
•>een driven 326 feet, and is being
pushed ahout three feet each St hours.
There aie a,we stringers of quartz in
>he face of the tunnel, and it seems
quite probable thai lbe ledge may
be rut at any time, though it may he
possihle that it is yet 30 or 40 feel
away. This uncertainty ia owing to
the fart lhat the work in thr shafl haa
not determined the pitch of the ledge.
There is also another opening further
north. The real width of the ledge is
still a matter of conjecture. It has
hern crossed for almut 100 feet in all
the openings, bul it is likely Ibat it
-.-.-ill prove lo he much larger where Ihe
tunnel cuts it at a depth of 226 feet,
"Tie company has erected a board
ing and hunk house near the mine
and Is getting in supplies to last dining Ihe winter.
"The Maud West, which adjoins the
Bodie un the south, is still driving its
crosscut tunnel. It is in over 260 feet.
It is uncertain how much further it
will have to he run to reach the ledge,
bul it is believed that nnl more than 60
feet will be necessary. It is eipected
that it will be cut about 300 feet below
t he croppings. Where opened on the
surface Ihe ledge is almut live feet
wide, The values are said lo average
almut $11 per ton at the surface, and
ange from $15 to $20 at thn bottom
of the shaft.
■The May Flower ia another properly thai pionuses to be a great producer another season, according lo
report,
••The Olford Is also a prospect of
merit It is lieing developed by a crosscut tunnel, which has Iwen driven 125
feet. Its face is still ahout 100 feet
from Ihe ledge. The outcrop is large
and the ore of high grade. There has
not been enough woik done on the
surface to determine lhe width of the
ledge.
"There is a good wagon road lo
Midway, which will enable the ore lo
be hauled U> the railroad at a reasonable rate.
"There are the best of reasons for
believing Ihal Bodle will soon be a
thriving camp. The chief of these is
ita large ledges and lhc high value* of!
its ore. They can lie shipped with
profit, and will not have to await the
election of mills before liecoming valuable producers."
Considerable development work has
lieen done of late on the While Cloud,
which Is situate on the hill just above
Midway.   A well defined ledge of cop-
luis heen disclosed and Ihe own*

per
nnd McOnrmick,
ers, Messrs. Hopper *....
are negotiating for a bond on  Ihe
properly.
In accordance with the decision arrived at by the Kjecutive of the Provincial Unod Roads Association at the
time of the holding of the Good Roads
Convention In Kamloops last September, a general meeting of the Association will be held ia Victoria during the
annual session of the Farmers' Central
Institute, which haa been ret for the
llth of December next.  Step* have
already lieen taken Io organize the
whole Province through lbe several
Vice-PresidenU, so that Ihere may be
a thoroughly representative gathering
at this meeting of the Hritish Oolumhla Oood Roads Association.   Mr. F.
J. Deane, Ihe President of the Associa
tion, has caused lei he circulated a letter to all Vice President* urging upon
them the necessity of at once taking
up the matter of local organisation,
with a view to seeing tbe right kind of
a gathering at Victoria next month.
In this connection Mr. Deane ha*
lieen in correspondence with Mr. A.
W. Campbell, M. Can. 8nc. C. R„ Ontario's Engineer nf Highways and Colonisation Roads, and the following
suggest inns from Mr. Campbell will be
found very useful hy those interesting
themselves in the "Oood Roads" move-1
ment.
"I am very glad Indeed to know tbat
your steps of organization have been
so successful, and from the interest
whirh in various ways has, I find, lieen
aroused in your Province, I am sure
ihat much good will result from the
agitation you have commenced.   As
to how you can beet gel at the people
throughout your Province, it is difficult
to say without a full knowledge of
your conditions and requirements.   In
Ontario we formed no local associations, but once the Provincial organization was created, an arrangement
was made with the Department of Agriculture to have the subject placed on
the programme of Farmers' Institutes
and the more active ones in the road
organizations were placed on the government  delegations,  these  largely
covering the Province at the Government expense.   Immediately it waa
discovered tbat Ihe agitation wae appreciated the tiood Roads Association
urged the Government to create the
Department nf Roads, of which I am
now the official head.   My flrst duty
on taking office was to get into communication and enlist, as far as possible, the sympathy  aud  support of
Municipal Councils, Boards nf Trade,
Dairy snd all other Agricultural Associations, and at tbe request of Munici-
pal Councils at once commenced a tour
for an inspection wilh them of tbe
roads in their Municipality, the system
tinder which they were working, and,
under tbe auspices of the Councils,
addressed meetings of the ratepayers.
This (hen made the question distinctly
local, and while the suggestions were
drawn largely from a general plan, yel
they appeared lo lie dealing wilh that
particular Municipality, and suggestions made for the change of system
and methods, appealed so pertinent
and reasonable that in a very short
time a few by-laws to bring almut
these changes were introduced   and
can itul.   These were I hen used to good
advantage in urging others lo follow,
so lhat yon can readily appreciate how
comparatively easy it wss, in this way,
to reach the people and bring almut
the changes.   I am inclined to think,
however, that with you progress will
lie somewhat slower, on  account of
your not having so many organisations
through which to work ; and possibly
it may be some little time hefore your
Government will feel justified in creating a Department tor  thia  special
wnrk.
It appears to me that your chief object should be to educate the people in
how roads should be made and the
economy of doing so as far as possible
in a finished manner, consistent with
tiie requirements of travel j what kind
of implement* should be employed in
doing the work easily, cheaply and
well i how these should be operated *.
and create a general interest in the
question, and a sym**athy in favor of
improvement, as rapidly a* po*»!ble,
consistent wilh other considerations,
"In order to do thb, it wonld he well
for you to make use ot all the associations In the Province. You should
have no difllcultv In enlisting tbe active support of every organised body,
commercial, industrial and agricultural, Your present Department of Government in rharge of roads should be
used not only to assist you in carrying
on tills work of education, but should
follow up the practical rod hv giving
exhibitions in the different parts of t lie
Province in practical road making.
Short lections of a street in towns and
village*, and short sections of roads in
the more populous communities should
he made and due notice of ihis work
be given in order that Ihe people may
be collected to see the work performed j
and hear tbe different steps explained
hy the person in charge. These will
serve as valuable object lessons and
will do mora than will speeches to influence the people in doing their part
for good roads.
"In reaching your present organizations it will he necessary to enlist some
of the more active members of jour
association whn aie qualified to lay
the matter before tbem.   I have no
doubt these bodies would pay the expenses of such delegates ; if not. tbo
Government should.    The  bead  of
your present  Provincial  Roads   Department should also he in a position
to address a number of these meetings.
"Outside ol this, you will have to
rely upon local organizations, composed of men sufficiently interested iu iho
advancement uf their locality In volunteer * little time for that purpose. One
good, live, active man, popular in the
community, should he selected aa organizer.   He should call a local meeting, draw up a few of the faithful, ami
elect officers.   Tbeir business  should
he to receive and study carefully nil
literature on the subject, aod whenever
an opportunity presents, bave a word
to say in favor of better roads, aud
thus prepare tbe ground for tbe seeds
tbat may be sown later on.   Tbey
should arrange for a puhlic meeting
onceayariu the locality, to he addressed by some authority on roads.
They should collect the people to witness the building of sample pieces of
road ; organize the community for special appropriations and voluntary subscriptions of labor or money for improving roads in the locality, and generally to receive from and transmit to
the central body, all information that
may advance the cause.  Your vice-
presidents should urganize ihese meetings.   He will no doubt become tbe
president, and wilh bim should be a
vice-president, sect clary-treasurer, and
as large a committee of management
as ran he interested, In order to identify as many of the leading men as possible with the cause.
"The bylaws of these associations
should he largely identical with those
of the parent Imdy from whom they
should receive a liheral supply of th*
right kind of literature.
"I would be glad to let you have any
literature which would he interesting
to ynu. Yours truly,
A. W.Campbell,
Provincial Highway Commissioner.''
Everyone concerned in the Ijood
Roads movement should take up tbis
matter of local organization heartily at
once. Any person can become a member of the Briti*-h Columbia Good
Roads Association upon application to the secretary, Mr. E. T. W,
Pearse, oi Kamloops, without fee of
any kind.
No hetter time for holding a general
meeting could well be fixed than during the sessinn of the Farmers' Central
Institute, coming as ii does within a
few weeks at must of the session of the
Provincial legislature.
It is to be hoped '.he matter will he
taken up vigorously all over the Province. Certainly the discussion of the
road requirements of thi« Province at
representative gathering of thorn concerned just hefore the met ting of the
legislature cannot fail to tie productive of go -.
The Oood Roads movement is a popular one ! il has the endorsement of all
classes of ihe community, and is hound
to etfeel many needed reforms. All
tbat is required is for all interested to
enter heartily into the movement, each
in his own locality doing his utmost to
spread the gospel of "Good Roads."

Elsewhere in tliis issue we publish an
article containing a few suggestions
from A. W. Campbell, Ontario's Engineer of Highways, which will he
found very iim-l'iil lo those interested
in tbe "good roods" Movement. It
gives an idea of the usefulness of an
organism Ion whose object is to" better
the condition of our public roads, and
nowhere would such an Improvement
be fiiiiinl mini' appropriate than in lhe
Boundary country, when- at present
the disgraceful condition of a number
of our highways is the subject for
much comment. Everyone should lend
a Willing hand to assist the Good
Roads Association in accomplishing
the work which it lias set itself out to
do. A general nieeling of lbe Association vill ba held at Victoria on December 17, and it is to he hoped that there
will be a large and representative
meeting und that much good will result therefrom.
We are in receipt of a copy of "The
Coming Land," a new journal which
hos just made ils appearance in the
Held of literature. The hook is devoted to the interesl s of British Columbia,
and contains a scries of well written
articles, illustrated with numerous
photographs The work is I he product
of the Clarion Publishing company,
Vancouver, and containslKJpages, royal quarto size, printed on coated paper.
The illustrations depict many scenes
and views of various parts of the Pro
vince. On the cover is a typical Ilritish
Columbia scene of Sunrise over the
mountains; a prospector on horseback
is seen in the foreground emerging
fi um the forest, while at the foot of
the mountains appears an Indian encampment nn the shore of I he lake. It
deals most, exhaustively with the resources and attractions nf British Colunihia. No part of the Province has
heen omitted, The placers of the

difficult nutter to account for tne
total failure of the West Fork rood, we
have only lo point to tbe over officious
council of the Greenwood Hoard of
Trade, which made itself ridiculous by
thwarting the efforts of Mr. Thruston,
who, bad he been left alone, would in
all probability have, ere tbis.coiuplelcd
the road for tho $S,000. But that
honorable body were not satisfied al
confining themselves to tho affairs of
Greenwood. These seekers after no*J
toriel y wished to extend the field for
Iheir operations by taking up the business of tlie West Kork Roud with the
result that tbey have properly hoodooed it aud put it in such a position
that it is very doubtful if it be finished
this winter. Mr. Thruston agreed to
build lhe road for $8,000, but the
Greenwood Board of Trade practically
look il out of his hands and through
their representations and the fact tha'.
ihefiitlteisof F. C. Gamble and C. Jii.
Shaw weie old friends, the Provincial Engineer placed Mr. Shaw in
charge of the work—such bunds of
friendship are worthy of commendation, iml in ihis instance proved expensive to lhe contributors to the
Government collections. The Greenwootl Board of Trade- differs fiom all
the other boards of Trade throughout.
Ihe Province, their jurisdiction extends over a greater territory, and to
mind their own business la foreign lo
their noi ure. Nothing escapes ihem.
Kven the war in China is nol beneath
their notice. At present I here is H
smallpox scare in Republic Imt it is to
lie hoped thai, the Board of Trade in
question will not appoint themselves a
committee to prevent its spreading lor
if they meet wilh their usual success
the whole country will be affected.
Now Mr. Shaw may be a competent
engineer and able to lind the proper
glades for a road, but when the survey
nf the road was completed lhat was all
that was necessarily required ot hint.
There are plenty uf men in lhe district, who are experienced in road
making and whu could have been employed to oversee the work without
paying such ex borhitant rates as charged by a Provincial Land Surveyor. Lasl
year when the C. P. R. thought of extending ils line fruiu Midway west, a
survey was run from here to
Beaverton, a distance of fifty miles,
lhe work being accomplished in five
weeks, in spite of the inclemency of
winter weather, while about two
months have alrealy been spent in
surveying about 17 miles of lhe Wesl
Kork road. There is great speculating
as lo the amount it will require to complete the road. One individual has
ottered lo guarantee ils completion for
41,0(10. While a Oreenwood candy
vender lias offered lo temporarily suspend business and take the contract
for $10,000. So from the great difference in these two amounts its is difficult to form any idea uf the amount of
money required for I his purpose. Since
the appointment of I. A, Dinsmnre, ns
ltoad Commissioner, that gentleman
has, during the two months which he
has been iu office, built over 40 miles
of roads and trails for a smaller
amount than was estimated hy Mr,

Work   has Iibi n   impended on the
West, Fork wagon road anil although
the  appropriatlun for  huilding  the
entire road hetween  WesUiridge and
Beaverton   hus heen exceeded nearly
$4,000, only about Hve  tulles of road
hnve lieen nun iletctl.   whioh   18 only
one lllth of the distance between the
two places,    It is just a question if the
original grant of $8,000 wus suffldtmt
to covt'i the expense involved in huilding the road ; for in order to avoid a
number of nick bluffs it wus fnund
necessary to cms* the Kettle river four
limes which necessitate* the huilding
nf a large  hridge  at cub crossing.
These hridges alone would involve con*
sitleiiible outlay s" that there i-- just it
possibility that tha itiH.iXXl would tint
be suiiici'nt tn complete the roud .md
provide for the building of the l" idj,"'s

enough  in accomplish the   work the
extra amount needed should huve heen
but small and   certainly nol .$l,(XJU,

Instead   of    huving    it    completed
the  work of   construction  has   hip

proposed   Oanadlan  mint would not
turn nut enough coin ot  the realm to
meet the  expenses incurred hy   the
innumerable high salaried bosses and
their "subs" in charge of the work.
There were more preliminaries in connection with the grading of these few

Ihe  purpose  of  giving  lhe  officials'
relations a job,   They  wnuld never

J. 0. Thompson ba* just returned
from the West Kork country, and interviewed liy an Advanck representative, Mr. Thompson said : "I found ]
considerable activity in Ibe whole
West Kork country, especially nt Oar-
rut, wliere thill een renidencea have re
cently lieen erected and a nunilier of
stores are doing a flourishing trade,
W. K. McBoyle and J. II. tlufner are
conducting large general stores and
Itrst-claas liunrding house*, hut owing
to tbe inconvenience experienced in
gelling lu goods, iheir stuck*nre limited in Rome lines. The managing director of the Carmi Tow unite company,
J, (.'. Dale, is calling fur tenders fnr the
erection uf a good sized collage.
The machinery has heen installed
at Ihe Carmi mine, and is working
successfully. It is nut yet known how
many men will lie employed at the
pruperty during ihe winter. This will
hugely depend upon whether the rond
is completed in order lo admit of ore
lieing hauled tn Midway for shipmeni
lo the pyritie smeller. The manage-
i ment of the mine have just completed
a sleigh mad from the mine In a point
opposite Kendell, and will continue it
lo meet wiih the West Kork wagon
road should lbe survey parly get within a reasonable distance in the near
future.
"I wish to go on record as lieing
greatly opposed to the extravagant
expenditure of the pulilic funds in con
nection with the West Ko-k mad. It*
ium completion is a great disappoint
ment tn the whnle West Kink country.
Mr. ThouipHiui concluded hy guying :
"I niu deeply impressed wilh Ihe possibilities nf Ihe upper river country
from a mining point nf view. As yet
Ihe country i* in its irfancv, Imt its
vast resources nre such aa Will shortly

Procrastination is the thief of time.
Do not put off until to-morrow what
you can do to-day. Now that times
are improving throughout the Boundary Country in general, and in Midway
in particular, the number of lot sales is
daily increasing, and not only will the
prices soon go up, but the most desirable locations will be disposed of. Invest
now and show your good judgment.

Int. Kumora in regard lo the*** liig
iiiinei have lieen current for some, time
Iml lit lie credence has heen placed In
Ihem, and wisely. But now it really
appear* lhat those interest-d in these
mines, which lie in the heart of I'hoenii
and have leen idle since last March,
are determined to resume operation*.
J, lv Boss, one of the directors of lhe
company, was iu the Boundary this
week,and wa* interviewed hya Pioneer
repre*entiitive. He was somewhat
reticent in regard to the detail* of the
future of the company, hut he stated
that he most a-surially, expected
the mines would l-e working agninwitli-
in W)days, and that Ihey would le in
charge of a man with ex|ierience, to In
worked for all they are wotth.
It i* understood that, at a meeting
of the directors of the Dominion Cop
per Co.. held tome weeks since in Tor
onto, a deal wa* made fora controlling
inlerest in the company. Oitain detail* anil formalities bad lo lie gone
ihrough wilh and these are nnw lieing
completed, and as noon a* all arrangement a are finished the pioperlie* will
once more be worked in full hlast.
It is given oui lhat James Breen a
mining and ameltot man of wide experience, who tine* not do most of hi*
work wlih hi* mouth, will have entire
charge of the operation* in future.
Mr. Ureen wa* in charge of the Trail
smeller al one lime, and luult and
operated the Le Roi Mueller at North-
putt.. From thi* fact, it is believed in
some quartet* the cslaldishinent of
their own smell ing works, is one of
the iMissihiliiies, if not prohaiiiliti' s,
of the near future in connection with
the operation* in Phoenix of the Dominion Copper Co.
Mr, Boss is a great, rnihttalast  in regard to Phoenix and it* mines, as well
a* in the future of the young cit y  ll-
aelf.   He aays, however, that his com.
pany i» not going into the real estate
or   townsite   husiness,  and   that  it*
property in Phoenix will not lie plaited
or placed on the market.   The lutsi
nes* of  the company is mining and
when the Dominion Copper Co. once
atari* it* Phoenix properties up again,
that husiiiegs will lie vigorously prose
■uted with ample capital for all needs.
Asked If it was  tine,  as  has  lieen
stated, that McKenzie, Mann Ac Co.,
had let go Iheir Interest in the Doniinion Copper Co., Mr, Hoss stated emphatically that such wa* nol the fact.
Thus, if Mr. Bom is not too sanguine
it can he  readily aeen  that prohahly
by Christinas lime, the large mines on
the north side of our valley will he III
full hlast once more, and a xnlwtan*
Unl addition lo the   payroll «f lhe
chief mining rent re of the Boundary
will be nude.—Phoenix Pioneer.
