OEOLOOICAL   SURVEY    REPORT.
R. W. Brock Gives an Account of his
Work In the Boundary,
The-summary report ot Ihe Geological Survey Department for the calendar year of 11)01 is to hand. Referring
lo the Boundary country ii says In
part.:
The work wns confined 11 portions
of the Grand Forks antl Kettle river
mining divisions of the Boundary dis
trict. Comment ing field work ai (iiand
Folks, llnrdy creek was ascended to
Hardy mountain, and the country lie
tween July creek and the North Fork
of the Kettle river to the international
hoiindary line was examined. From
here the work was extended northward to Summit camp. From this
point the area between Brown creek
and the North Fork was examined'.
Moving southward, the district between July creek and Boundary creek
was exnminid a shott distance south
of Wellington cainp. From Wellington camp July creek was descended
and camp was moved to Grand Forks
From Grand Forks, a tiip was made
up the main North Fork of lhe Kettle
river, to examine the rocks In which
coal had recently been discovered.
On returning to (irand Forks, work
was extended from July creek to Boundary creek, south of Wellington camp,
tothe Boundary line, including Central imd Atwood's camps, A travelse
ea. then tnadii of the Columbia ,v.
Western railway, between Midway
and Grand Forks, the railway cuttings
affording line exposures of the rocks
of the district.
The climate is drier lhan thai of
West Konlenay, This, wilh the lower
altitude of the mountains, tbe consequent lighter snowfall and more rapid
melting in the spring, makes I he water
supply less copious and reliable, although the district is slid fairly well
watered. The valleys, as a rule, are
large and wide, affording, In a number
of instances, gootl ranching lands.
Boundary oreek occupies the principal longllltudliial valley between the
North Fork and ihe ninii) Keltic river,
Along ils lower stretch it is a wide U-
shaped valley, with gootl grazing laud
on its lower slopes. The transverse
valleys are short, and sleep, but still
larger and older than the correspond
ing valleys in West Kootenay. The
topography, as a whole, is that of an
older inountain district,
Mosl. of the valleys are or have heen
well wootled, The vegetation is similar lo that of West Kootenay. Thn
open hillsides are u-imlly clothed with
buiith grass, unci sage brush win observed nt one or two localities.
Although this dislrict may be Ira*
versetl With less difficulty lhan West
Itnotinitiy,geological work is not much
easier, as the covering nf drift in ninny
placet)conceals the rotUs Jiud good ex
posures are found with difficulty, if at
all, Frequently the critical points,,
such as contacts, are entirely drift,
covered. While prospect pits nre
usually lo be found, these are not altogether satisfactory for geological pur*
poses, for mineralization obscures the
original stl'ucnire, as lt alters the original character of Ihe rocks, Afler a
few words on the nature and distribution of the rocks, a short account of
the occurrence of ores in them will he
given, As In the .Kootenay dislrict,
the geology is complex and diversified,
Eruptive rocks (greenstones, gran*
lies, various ililrnsive dykes, tuffs and
lavas, etc) have the widest distribution. Sedimentary locks, such as
limestone, generally crystalline, argil*
lites, quiirtzites, together with mrta-
iiiorphic rocks including setpentines,
are met with In almost all pjtrts of the
district, but do not have very large
dimensions in tiny one place, being
caught up as inclusions in the intrusive
eruptive rocks. The oldest rocks rec*
Agnized in the dlslri'jt are Ihe sedimentary and crystalline rocks.
Near Central camp are exposures of
a gray inonzonite-like rock and dykes
of thc similar rock occur in the gray
granite near Greenwood end in the
greenstone at tbe Ruby claim, Wheth*
er this rock is related to the Rossland
monzonites and theiefore newer than
the gray granite, or whether only
fades of the gray granite and its
dykes, has yet to he determined. A
pinkish acid granite newer lhan the
gray and belonging to the rock largely
exposed nn lhe ^divide between the
East Branch and the main North Fork
of the Kettle river, occurs on the main
North Fork of the Kettle river about,
10 miles above the fork nf the Enst;
branch". On the North Fork of the
Kettle river there nlso occurs a still
newer rriuk.il reddish poi phyritic gran-
iie similar in appearance to the Rossland granite.

The Winnipeg is again on lhe shipping list.   For several weeks no ore
was sent to the smellers, but recently
shipments have been  resumed, and 11
consignment of 05 lons.were forwarded
to Grand Korks.   Recent development
1,1118 opened up a considerable ore body
. nnniiiiiiie, and 1)1-,-r- '-• --"    ■-
' he limited by tlie capacity of the hoisting apparatus at lhe mine,   it is expected ihat shippingoperaiions will be
continued for an indefinite period,
The Standard Oil company has acquired the Mound and  Copper t ti If
properties ou Copper mounlain, in the
Siiiiilkiimeen, from Oie Johnson and
L. Jacolison of Rosslnnd.   The consideration  is  understood   to  he $52,000
cash.   The Standard Oil people own
ihe well known Nickel Plate mine, on
which Ihey have spent many thousand
dollars in development.   The Mound
and  Copper Clitf adjoin  ihe Nnkel
Plate and were acquired with a view
In extending the oil people's holdings.
The claims were located hy   Messrs.
Jacobson nnd Johnson on a grubstake
by W. Yolen Williams, who was in-
triimenlal in making lhe deal.
It Is reported that there is a deal on
for the consolidation of Ihe Dominion
Copper conipany  and Ihe Snowshoe
Golti   and   ('upper    Mines,    Limited,
whose properties are sil tinted in lhe
Phoenix  camp.   The  control   in the
former company is held by Senator
C.ix, Robert Jiilfniy and Mackenzie k
Mann, all of Toronto.   The properties
iu ihe group include the Brooklyn nnd
Stemwinder mines.   James Breen, the
smelter man,mulct took a large amount
of development woik last year in return for a controlling interest  in  (he
stuck.    It was alsn stipulated that h.'
should build a smelter for the Ireat*
ment of ores. Afler Ureen lunl expended, it is said, over $1(KI,01HI of his own
money, he had a disagicement wiih
ihe Toronto capitalists and withdrew,
receiving an equivalent in slock bul
not the control for the development
work he had directed.   Tlie group is
commonly regarded us one of the must
promising in the Boundary and one
already on a basis to ship a large tonnage  dally.   The  Snowshoe group is
nearly a mile distant,   It is on 11 shipping basis and could easily ship 1100
tons daily.   Besides the underground
workings the ore can be quarried fifth)
huge open cuts on Ihe surface.   The
failure of ihe management hitherto 10
ship except for experimental purposes,
is ascribed to the fact that it had been
decided to wait until thc mine owned
its own smelter.   Tho company has a
capital of ll&iO.OOO and the control of tv
majority nf the shares it held by the
British Columbia, Rossland anil Klocnti
Syndicate, the vendor of which spent
over JSn.lXm In developnienl work. The

F.J. Deane has purchased Ilie Nelson Miner plant, and the paper is now
called the Daily News. In his salulory
the new proprietor announces that lhe
new paper will be greatly improved
and, recognizing the necessity for all
sections of the community to work
together harmoniously in order to obtain the most, satisfactory results, it
will he one of its important aims to
hi ing all classes together on one com
iniin platform. Nelson has long been
divided into Iwo classes, one supporting the Miner and the other the de-
fund Tribune, until there was not sufficient support to make either paper
profitable, but if Ihe News he successful in obtaining the support of the
entire population of lhat prosperous
Kootenay city, it should enjoy unbounded prosperity.

A copy of the estimates for the ex
peiiilitures of the  province for the
coining year has been received at this
office,    The  revi nne  is  expected   to

a fisheries  commissioner  at  $3,000,
while a salary of $115 a month is provided for a supervisor for log scalers,
also a new office.   The  steam  hoiler
inspection will cost the province more
than last yenr, the inspector at Nelson

month and Ihe other inspectors gel.
increases of $25 a month each.   The
bureau of statistics is a new service for
Ihe maintenance of which there is an

Passenger Traln.s Are Now Running
Over the New Bridge at Robson.
Passenger trains are now running
over Ihe new Canadian Pacific bridge
at Robson, the now .service being formally inaugurated hi't Monday.
The thtough service makes some alterations in the runs of the (rain crews
operating on the division, but no changes iu the time card huve been made
as yet, and it, is not expected thai a
new schedule will be necessary, although tho effect of tl.-e Ihrough service, if any, would be to reduce tlte
running lime. Tlie necessity of awaiting the arrival of the bonis from lhe
north will probably prevent faster
lime being made on the division. The
travelling public will appreciate the
abolition of the ferry a! Robson,which
has heretofore taken up consideralile
time and been a source of inconvenience generally.
In future'the Boundary trains will
not run into Rossland, as has been the
case since the completion of the Columbia k Western rond. Instead the
Boundary set vice will be operated between Mid,vay anil Nelson, ihe distance between these Iwo points being
approximately the same ns between
Midway Bnd Rossland. The buffet car
service will also be run from here into
Nelson.
The morning train out of Rossland
will in future connect with the Boundary train at Robson and then go
thtough to Nelson, while the evening
train goes in ditect from Nelson instead of from the Boundary, as hns
been the case heretofore.
The nnv bridge at Robson is a substantial juncture which has been in
course of construction for more than a
yenr past, and has cost tbe company
between $175,000and $200,000, In ad-
,,.,. .,,,, cms outlay tne cui*i-<a,,j „,...
expended a Urge sum in improving its
roadbed on the Columbia k Western
section with a view to the increased
traffic when the through service was
commenced. This local improvement
work^is still under way on a considerable scale, lt is the intention of the
Canadian Pacific, moreover, tu construct a neat station building at the
eastern approach of the hridge for the
convenience of passengers transferring

structure will probably lie completed
liefore the end  of the approaching
Summer.

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed.   This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers.   When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from' here,
making this the railway centre of this
district.   With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now.   Midway property will make you
rich.   It is not a speculation, it i s an
investment.

Contradict! (Ir. Dewdney.
Speaking to a Vancouver World reporter recently Mr. Mnherly, one of
Ihe engineers in Mr. Dewdney's parly
employed by the provincial government to survey through the Hope
mountains, lu order to determine if a
pass could be found through which a
railway could be built, is reporled to
bave said : "Notwithstanding 'Dewdney's damn' of the Hope mountain
pass, I expect to see a railway buill
across that very section of the country
in a very short time,
"It Is a peculiar thing," he continued,
that the Hon. Hon, Mr. Wells should
announce down Pnst that there was a
pass through the Hope mountains, and
ihat a prominent member of Mr.
Dewdney's own party should intimate
thnt a gn.de could easily bo secured,
and Ihen the whole project to be condemned as Impracticable," Mr. Mo
borley, while he waa very careful not
to foreshadow the report of his chief
in any way, gave lhe impression that
the patty had been successful in discovering a puss, and that the whole
country Ihrough tliere was worthy of
development. His portion was on the
eastern side, wliere he said existed
great beds of coal and along the valleys of the rivers were districts with
agricultural possibilities.; Vet Mr,
Dewdney says it is not so,
"Itis to be noticed that the provincial government despatched upon this
mission of puss Hmling a man who
years ngo was chosen for the same
undertaking hy the 0. P. R. and re
ported that no wny through the mountains was available, When tbe line
which is now one of the grenl est trans
continental ronds, wns building west
ward, Mr. Dewdney, I believe, wns in
charge of ii party which came south
from Kamloops to seek for a cut
Ihrough the mountains at Hope, along
one of the river valleys. The report
handed iu was that tht-re was none.
Then the government of British Col
ilinliia sent out (his same man on the
same errnnd. (!nn it he that they
w.shetl just such a report which has
heen furnished ?
"I have been through tho Hope pass
myself," the World's informant said,
"and I have nnt the slightest doubt
that a railway will he running to the
Similkameen from the coast."

Ping Pong.
Prevention Better Than Cure.
(With apologies to the shade of Longfellow.)
The shades of night were falling fast
As I hrougb a London fog there passed
A youth, who bore a worried look,
And muttered as his way he took—
'•Ping Pong I"
His brow was sad, his eye annoyed,
Flashed like a globe of celluloid j
And like a wooden rackel rung
The accentufrom his weary tongue
"Ping Pong 1"
In happy homes he saw a blight,
Their "household tires" were out of
sight.
For where the glacial globules shone
They'd quite forgot to put coal on—
"Ping Pong I"
"Try not to serve," the old man snid,
"Dark low'rs a fsilnre on your head;
Tlie chiffonier is yawning wide ;"
lint still his weary voice replied —
"I'ingl'ong!"
"Oh, stay,"  Ihe maiden said,  "and
rest,
While for the ball we make a quest, 1"
A glare lit up his fienzii-d eye,
"There's  plenty  more lefl," was Mb
sigh-
"Ping Pong I"
"Heware Ihe volley, mad and rash,
Beware the awful cunning 'smash ;' "
This wns Ihe  P'lioruian's last good
night,
A voice replied through the lamplight,
"Ping Pong I"
At break of day, as on his bent,
A constable in Oxford street
Muttered for six o'elocka pray'r,
A voice rang on the silent air—
"Ping Pong I"
A traveller prostrale on (he ground,
Somewhere in   Camden   town   was
found,
Still clinging to a nickel, fust
And wildly murmuring to the last—
"Ping Pong I"
There in the morning,  cold and gray,
Brainless yet beauiiful he lay ;
And full n voice on film from fnr,
"Good  Li.rd,  whnt assi-s some  folks
are 1"
"Ping Pong I"
