£Camp McKinney, B, C. Juno
ik (Special to Tun Dispatch.)—
TJk; development on the Waterloo, wbich has been steadily
Progressing for the last few
months under tho management
of Mr. Denis Clark, is justifying the confidence which that
gentleman has invaribly expressed in the property. On the
occasion of Mr. Clark's last vis-'
t. to tin; camp he instructed Mr.
John Harvey, the superintendent, to sink a winze in the high
grade oro at the 150 ft. level.
Tliis winze is now down about
50feet and is still in high grade
ore, the vein being fully three
feet wide and the values from
$100.00 upwards. The exceptional richness of the ore cnute
is a surprise to the most enthusiastic admirers of the property;
and will enable the Waterloo to
take iU place, at an early date,
among the dividend payers.
Already one car load of high
grade ore has been shipped to
the Trail smelter, and another
uii load ia now being sacked, it
being the intention to ship at
least one or two carloads a
month of the higher grade ore
as being more profitable than
running through the mill.
The mill, which has been entirely re-fitted, commenced running on Monday, the plates
quickly showing the richness of
the ore being crushed, the one
draw-back being the limited
number of stamps, this, however, will bo remedied as soon
as the additional stumps can be
got in place, there being sufficient power for ten stamps. A
full supply of water has been
ensured by the re-construction
of the flume and the laying of
piping, in fact the whole mine
and its equipment is running
most smoothly and reflects
great credit on the management.
It ia difficult to estimate what
the success of the Waterloo
means to tho general prosperity
of the camp The adjoining
claim, the Fontenoy, is undoubtedly a very valuable property,
the rich oro chute directly dipping into it while other properties further east aro certain to
attract the attention of mining
men.
situation. Accompanied liy the
secretary of tlie board of trade!,
the inspector drovedown Boundary creek to Midway, visiting
Boundary Falls on the way.
After looking at Kettle river,
information respecting the
habits of the lish frequenting
the streams and lakes of the
country drained by Kettle river
and its tributaries was sought
from several residents long fa miliar with these waters, A very
positive opinion was found to
prevail that since the erection
several years ago of the dam
across Kettle river at Cascade
certain varieties of fish liave
gradually lessened in number
and, too, the fish now obtainable in the river are not so large
as in earlier years. The practicability of transporting live
fish from some of the lakes already well stocked to Long lake
and other unstocked waters was
also enquired into. Wednesday
A, N. Pelly drove the inspector
up Long lake. Enquiries will
also be made regarding the con-
ition of the north fork of Kettle
river, whicli joins the main
Kettle river at Grand Forks, in
regard to the lessening or other
wise of the numbers of the fisli
in that stream, and Cascade will
be visited with the object of
ascertaining what provision is
practicable there for facilitating
the ascent of the river of fish
returning in proper season from
the Columbian river, into
which the Kettle river flows below Marcus, Washington. It is
satisfactory to find that this
question of maintaining a
supply of fish iu the waters of
the Boundary district is being
thoroughly enquired into, so
that the department may be in
a position to deal with it elfect-
vely. Incidentally it may be
mentioned, in connection with
the failure of the department to
carry out its undertaking last
year to supply black bass for
Long and Christina lakes, the
inspector expressed the opinion
that consideration for our
neighbors across the liiio
requires that nothing be done
in this direction if, as stated, it
may possibly eventually injure
the salmon fisheries of the
Columbia river.

To Put in Fish Ladders.
Last month the Greenwood
board of trade communicated
with the department of marine!
and fisheries, Ottawa, relative
to placing fish ladders at Cascade, where the Cascade
Water, Power & Light Co.'s
dam obstructs the Kettle river
to such an extent, as to effectually prevent fish getting up
river abovo the dam, and at
Boundary Falls which are a
natural obstruction to trout.
(Kissing up Boundary creek
above the falls; also regarding
the stocking of Long lake, situate about seven miles north of

and courteous reply was received hy the local board, and
Tuesday C. B. Sword, dominion inspector of fisheries for
British Columbia, arrived at
Greenwood to   look into  the
Tho B, C. Copper company is
inviting tenders for hauling ore
from the Morrison mine to the
nearest point on the Deadwood
branch of the Columbia & Western railway, a down; hill haul
of about a mile and a quarter.
If  suitable   arrangements   bo
made for hauling, a short spur
for loading cars with ore will be
put in about half a mile above
the  Doadwood   sawmill,  near
whoro the railroad crosses Clipper creek, which flows across
tho  Morrison claim.    The  intention is to haul a few cars of
ore from the Morrison (lump for
tho purpose of testing whether
the sulphur contents of the ore
is such   that it.  will   facilitate
smelting operations at the company's  smelter at Greenwood.
If so it is probable that a proportion of the Morrison oro will
be treated at  the  smelter  so
long as the recently made   arrangement with the owners of
the Morrison shall remain   in
force.   As, however, the ore to
be obtained is that  now lying
on the dump, this arrangement
will not involve the shirting Up
of the mine, whicli closed down
recently  on   the   negotiations
with tho Canadian Pacific railway conipany to put in a spur
to the mine not resulting in this
work being undertaken.   As a
consequence of this  failure  to

chance grows less that, work
will start on the Republic mine.
Reports of experts who viewed
it have been sent to the management.of the Republic company
back in Montreal No final
action lias been taken, but so
gloomy are the reports that
men closely'in touch with lhe
affair feel that nothing will be
done towards resinning work,
The company lately authorized a. lirst mortgage bond issue
of $300,000 to start things aad
to pay off the company's debts,
in case it were decided to start,
Patrick Clark, 8, A. Parrish,
manager of the Le Roi, and
others inspected the property
and considerable exploratory
work was done undor Mr. ClArk's
irocbion. The results were not
satisfactory. The ledge at the
(MX) foot level shows a great tie-
posit of low grade quartz, but
the gold values have been so
scattered and the silver values
have grown to such an ' extent
that the ore cannot be handled
in the huge cyanide mill.
The company's indebtedness
is about $200,000, and it was
planned to pay this off and
give a working funb of $10(1,000
from the $3,000,000 bond issue.
It is not likely that the subscribers to the bonds will be called
upon to make the payments,
and the only prospect now for
the Republic company is to
have tlie property taken over
by the creditors, which would
wipe out the stock issue of $3,-
500,000.
The company has some other
assets in the way of mining
stocks, including shares in tho
Boundary-Republic company,
which hold large interests in
the Quilp. ThoQuilp is showing up in such fine shape as to
justify the belief that the
Boundary-Republic shares will
have   considerable value.
The Republic Power & Cyan*

Republic Mining company,
which built the Republic mill
at a cost of about $600,000, is in
vory bad shape, It has a bond
issue of $300,000, secured by the
mill, but interest on it is long
overdue. The company is in
the hands of a receiver.
Are Working: the Bell.
W. T. Smith has half a dozen
men at work on the Bell mineral
claim,   on  Wallace   inountain,
near Beaverdell,   west   fork of
Kettle river.   Tuzo and Currie
havoopenod up a.  lead  for  a
considerable    distance    across
their Comstock  group, also in
the    vicinity    of     Beaverdell,
whilst  Palmer and Rambo on
the neighboring Ella E. claim,
are meeting with such encouragement.   The placing  on the
supplementary    estimates    of
$7,000 for the completion of the
west fork wagon   road   is  encouraging     prospectors     and
others to once again turn their
attention    to    the   west   fork
country, which it is confidently
believed will yet prove a prosperous mining section.

BETTER METHODS REQUIRED.
An Act to amend the Public
Works Act introduced into the
Dominion Parliament provides
in part as follows;
"The Minister shall invite
tenders, |by public advertisement, for the execution of all
works, except in cases of pros-:
sing emergency in which delay
would be injurious to the puhlic
interest, or in cases in which,
from the nature of the work, it
can be more expeditiously and
economically executed by the
o/ficiers and servants of the Department, or in case's where the
estimated cost of the work is
less than $8000, and it appears
to the Minister, in view of the
nature of the work, that it is
not advisable to invite tenders."
An Act stieh as the above
might very well, become law in
British Columbia. In the report of the delegates to Ottawa
i'or better terras, it is stated
that the average cost of the construction of roads per mile in
Last Yale is $1700. We believe
it to be "well within tho mark,"
In 1900 the government built
eleven miles of the West Fork
road for about $3500. In 1901
they constructed six miles for
about $18000, but this was an
extraordinary graft year.
There is no doubt whatever',
that, if tenders were called for
tlie construction of these works,
the work would bo done for less
than half the cost and without
unnecessary delay.
lt is very timely to ask what
Premier McBride afldhisL. party,
and the Liberal party with so,
many possible leaders intend doing in this connection. Will
tliere be any changein methods?
Will tliere be. any change in the
civil servants? If .better methods and better civil servants are
not promised; 'there will not be
much enthusiasm at the polls.

THE INTERCOLONIAL RAILWAY.
The following extracts aro
from tho speech of Mr. H. R,
Emerson, M, P. for Westmoreland, N, 11., delivered in the
House of Commons iii reply to
tho criticisms of ex-Minister of
Railways, lion, John Haggart,
and other Tories of ■ the management of tlie principal government road under the present Liberal regime:
"Tho protcsfe that are anually
offered against the expenditure
on the Intercolonial Railway,
seem to me unworthy of the
Canadian sentiment that ought
to prevail in this parliament. I
have no desire to refer, to the
Intercolonial Railway from a

railway has not been, in any
sense, devoted to the interests

the manufacturers and the merchants of Toronto and Montreal

and Quebec as well as for those
Jiving in the maratime provinces. We forget, seemingly, that
the Intercolonial railway was
built for a certain purpose. It
was built largely as a military
road, aud I presume it "was
built where itwas built because
of the political exigencies at the
time, But it was built as part
of the compact of confederation,
and as a national highway, and
should he treated" iri" the siime
way as other highways of the;
country.
The Intercolonial to-day is, in]
my judgment, the best asset tlje
Dominion of Canada has. Wel
have heen told that the public
debt has been increased to the
extent of $23,000,000 by the
Intercolonial. What have you
to show for it? You have your
road and rolling stock as a
splendid asset. I do not pretend to be a prophet, but I be
lieve from the bottom of my
heart that within a few years it
will be one of the best paying
properties belonging tothe Dominion. But do those hon.
gentlemen who complain about
the increase of the public debt
on this account make any complaints against the exceedingly
large outlay that was made in
subsidizing the Canadiun Pacific Railway? The Intercolonial
I believe represents about $60,
000,000 of pulic money expended
on its construction—and in its
maintenance, if you will. But
the moneys that were paid out
in subsidies for the Canadian
Pacific Railway exceed that
sum by a very large amount,
without taking into account the
countless acres of land which
were given in land grants to
that road, lands which   to-day
