'viTjliotly engaged in prospecting
mid ihere was positively none to lie
found, As mi instance of whnt we
hnve said it is not necessary to go
fori In r than to refer til the country
lietween here and the Went Fork, at
ji point where Kelly creek eniers the
West Fork of the Ketlle Kiver. Prior
to '08 hut litlle prospecting had heen
done iu the lulls about this creek, a
lev piospeclors, supposed hy many,
und particularly by themselves, to be
lufailiable ill their judgment of a conn-
try containing mineral, had gone over
the country for a short distance back
from the rivet', but with no success
nd so the country was supposed to
be luu rrn and prospectors passed liy
nnd went further up lhe river, where
snnie excellent linds were mude,
which attracted Ihe attention of the
prospecting fraternity, who for two
seasons paid more attention to lhat
country than any other, all the lime
passing hy I lie Kelly creek country.
lu the spring nf 'US a peculiar Individual hy lbe niiine of Kelly, bill
wbo, for his eccentrio Idea*, was commonly called "Crazy" Kelly decided to
explore lhe country we are Bpeakiug
about. He was (-inspecting on a grub
sinkc furnished by .1. S. Harrison,
who at that time Was engaged iu the
jilistrncl husiness in Midway! Kelly
prospected fnr some time occasionally
returning with specimens of quail/,
iirrying free gold, which caused no
lii lie speculation iis lo where Ihey
wer" found. One day Kelly came to
Midway with some specimens thnl
were much better than nny yet ex
111 lii ted, he showed the rock to Mr.
Il.-ir tismi who was delighted with the
thought nf owning a half interest in a
claim producing ore of such exceptional
values, fur the gold could easily he
aeetl wiih lhe naked eye, Upon conversing with Kelly, Mr, Harrison wns
Informed lhat, in his anxiety to come
In town and make known his good
Hnd, he Ind fulled In comply ivtl.il the
mineral laws of Ilritish Columbia, uml
Instead of putting up the requisite
numher of slakes, lie had nnly taken
time In put iipadiacovcry po.si, Had he
have kept this a secret nnlil he relurned and staked tiie elaini properly
all would have been well, hut Kelly
told of his find to others, whn visited
ihe plare liefore hW return ami finding
Ihe claim not properly staked, fullllleil
I he necessai y eondii ions and kept the
elnlm, Kelly reluming only to Hnd
ihal in his case, silence would have
heen golden, as it wns holli he ami Mr,
Hnri ison lost valuable interests. The
loss nf Ihe claim so disheartened Kelly
ihal he gave awuy all his mlnernl
interi'sls in this country, which were
n few lie hud located earlier in the
same  year,  nnd started on foot for
Wisconsin, his former home. Up to
I lie time of Kelly's prospecting in that
country no name was given to the
cieek on whicli his claims were locaied, hul since that time it has been
called afler his name, and will no
doubt appear as such on the limp when
a revision is made of the map of that
country.
Aliout the time of Ki lly's discoveries
Mr, James Atwood of Midway, who
has probably Iocs ted more claims, that
have since turned out to lie of value
than any other prospector in this
■oiintry, visited the Kelly creek country and mnde u location, but the ore
was not of the same character exhibil-
'd by Kelly, which leads Mr. Atwood
to believe that the best find that Kelly
made is still unslaked and lhat it is
well worth looking for. Belie* ing
bis Mr, Atwood, in company with G.
I). Cunningham, also of Midway, spent
lhe greater pari of last summer pro?*
[peeling in that country, going, Ihey
believe much farther up the creek
than any one else has yet been, und
although they did not lind iinything
llint resembled the free milling gold
discovered by Kelly, they made several
locations, whicli are very promising
looking prospects and will it is be-
! lieved develop into paying mines. Of
I these perhaps. tln»4'oll»r-irthe ilinsT
valuable. It is situate on tlie south
side of the creek and distant from the
river ahoul a mile ami a half. Fnur ledges, varying from three to five feet in
width, were discovered on this claim.
Samples from two of these ledges,
which were lhe only ones sampled
gave gold and silver values to the
extent of $05 tothe ton.
The Queen Bess is another promising
properly, lt is situate farther up Ihe
creek than the Colby, It has an enormous surface showing of oopper thai
gave assay returns of $ii9 to the ton.
The Kaffir King is another of Messrs.
Atwood and Cunningham's claims. It
is an immense body of magnetite, being lifty feet hetween walls and
can  be traced for SOO feet.
Tlie Queen Bess and Kaffir King
together with the Colby group are
under bond to Andrew Laidlaw, wlr»
is now in the east endeavoring to
raise money lo wnrk the properties
uud if lie is successful in interesting
eastern capital, development work
will he conimonced early in the
ipring nnd Kelly Creek cump, which
for years was considered not worth
prospecting, will be tbe scene of
much activity.
Tlie properties here mentioned are
not the only claims located oil Kelly
Oreek, Since Messrs. Atwood aud Cunningham made their discoveries, quite
n number of other claims have beeu
locaied, most of them, however, being
on tlie trend of the Colby group veins,
The foregoing hut curl lea out lhe
old saying tlmt gold is wliere it is
found, There nre today large stretches of country between here nnd the
West Fork that is passed over just I lie
same as was Kelly creek up lo a shon
lime ago, country that is supposed to
contain no mineral and therefore prospectors do not bother with it und no
doubt this same eoiinliy will yet be
found to be rich in mineral. Someone will make a lind and many other
locations will follow just the snine as
Ims been lhe history of Kelly creek.

Will Cut Down Running Time.
Tiernny it Mcl'liail, general Can-
nadian Pacific railway contractors for
the Kootenay and Boundary branches,
nre engaged on tlie lasl piece of work
for Ihe railway compuny thai ihey
expect lo handle this year, This is
ihe building of the loop at Hartford
Junction, near I'hoenix, for the purpose of doing away with the switch-
hark which has been used since Ihe
railway grade was completed, nearly
two yenrs ngo.
The loops will he ubout 1000 feet
long, nnd Ihere nre ahout 2,000 yards
of rock lo be removed. Tlie contractors have lite wink well under wny,
uud suy snow will not delay thein.
They expect to have Ilie grade completed in    another   month.    When
senger and freight trains will be materially reduced between I'hoenix und
Eholt, where I hern are some of the
heaviest grades on the entire Boundary railway.
In addition to this, Tiernay & McPhail have recently completed consideralile other work in this vicinity
for the Canadian PaclHc railway. At
Eholt large additions to Hie trackage
facilities have been mode to accommodate tlie increasing traffic of the Phoenix branch. A 10 car spur lins been
put in at the Snowshoe, und an additional house track has heen Imiil iu
lhe I'hoenix yards, In addition to
this, the Knob Ilill spur hns been extended a distance of aliout 12,000 feet,
so that ore trains cun lie run right ii,i
to the mouth of the long tunnel, The
Canadian Pncillc railway extra gang
is now laying Hie rails on this track.
It is evident lhat the Canadian I'acilic Railway Compuny expects in do a
largely Increased business on this
branch in the spring. Two properties,
at least—the Granhy and the Snow-
shoe—will contribute largely to the
tonnage early in tlie new year.
THE SNOWSHOE.
Two Experiments are Being Made
for the Treament of the Ore.
.   A. J. McMillan, managing director
of the Snowshoe mine, has linen spending a few days at Ihe property previous
to starting to Loudon, Kngland, where
he will consult wiih the directors uf
the Snowshoe Gold &  Copper .Mines,
Limited, iii regard lo the further exploitation of the property,   lie left
thc camp  a  few  day  ngo and   will
leave for   the  old  country   shortly.
Before   leaving he gave some   interesting    information      as     tu   what
the rompany proposed to do in tlie
near future.   As iii known, th" company hits been looking around with a
view to arranging for the reduction of
tlie great  tonnage of oie that  tho
Snowshoe Is now capable of turning
out when the company sees Ht to do so
,—ilii»J'«'Mis-*'he icB*ilt of Two years or
more of steady developnienl  Ihut has
heen going on nt this property.   .Mr.
McMillan staled Hint two kinds of experiments were heing mude wiih Ihe
Snowshoe ore.   One of these wns by
the electric process, nnd is being conducted personally hy the great electrician Thomas A. Edison at his laboratory iu New Jersey,   The other is by
the nil process, and will he done hy the
Eluion Oil Concentrating  Works in
Kngland.   This latter, though still ton
large extent in I he experimental stage,
is oaid  to  be   quite   inexpensive,   the
cost being not mure than $1  per ton.
A plant, in fact, is now being installed
a1. Sl rat Ion's  Independence  mine at
Cripple Creek, Colorado, of which the
Earl of Chesterfield is chairman, the
same gentleman   heing chairman of
the Snowshoe mine,   lMr.McJlillan expects to arrive in London in time to
<eo the experimenting with the Snow-
shoe ore by the oil process.
Recent ly large improvements have
been going on at the Snowshoe mine,
indicating that the company intends
to work the property on nn extensive
scale at un early date. Buildings costing nearly $10,000 have been erected,
including new bunk and new hoarding
bouses, office buildings and superintendent's and foreman's residences.
All of these weie construct ed in a
must substantial and modern manner,
In addition to Ibis the C, P, R. spur at
tbe mine has been extended so as tn
allow the loading of len cms ul n lime,
nml new ore bunkers huve heen built.
In every way possible preparations
huve been made fnr working the mine
on  a large scale before long.
Mr. McMillan also placed an order
last week wilh Ihe Jenckes Machine
Company of Sherlnonlie, Quebec, fur
the first half nf a Hand duplex air compressor of Ml drill capacity, the same
company also supplying two 80boi.se
(tower boileis. The whole new machinery plant is lo he delivered liy the
end of February or sooner.
Mr. McMillan wus nsked the direct,
question aa to whether his compuny
really intended to erect Its own smeller
for the reduction of Snowshoe ores, us
has been commonly believed for snine
lime. The Snowshoe manager did nnr.
give a direct, answer, hul said lhe ci.inpany was in a position to do so if it.
seemed best. The impression was left
that It was the full Intention of tlm
compuny to do this just as soon as it
had been decided which was the best
and most economic process foi treating
the ores.
Lute developments on the Snowuhoo
huve shown thut the ore bodies nre
getting larger, lo say noiliing of the
immense tonnage nf decomposed me
on the surface of the property, whirh
the management Is now preparing to
ship. Experiments With llio diamond

MONDAY. DECEMBER 10. 1001.
Jusl now when recruits nre heing
taken from Canada lb South Africa to
assist in snbdueing Ihe Boers, we hear
much ahoul the Canadian contingent.
Tbe name would imply lhat the contingent was made up of Canadians,
but not so. Itis Canadian In name
only, for the recruits that are now going lo South Africa are mude up of a
few Canadians, ninny Englishmen,
while Scotland comes in for u fair
quoin. With nli due deference to
Englishmen and Scotchmen, this
should nut be the case. Canada
offered lo contribute a certain nunilier
of her sons to assist the molher country in currying on the South African
War, The olfer was accepted und bun
de ds of loyal Cun.idiuiis, all fine specimens uf manhood, came forward olfer-
ing (heir siTvic.s. hut vein they accepted 'i   Some were, others weie not
and why?   H use in u number of
cases Englishmen were taken ii, preference and we think we ran .stale without, fear of successful contradiction
that nn nil Canadian contingent would
hnve been ul mure value to ihu mother
country linn one marie up of a few
Canadians und lhe remainder froth the
old country, The average Canadian
is noi hut-house raised, and used lo a
featherbed existence. He is used to
nisi ling and therefore more capable of
enduring the hardships that are sure
to he encountered in the performance
of their duties in South Africa. And
ugiiin, apart Irom the question of
their usefulness, there is uliolher
puiut of great importance io tie considered. Must of the Canadians who
offered their services, but were substi-
tuii'd by Englishmen, were industrious
and deserving of recognition, while
In many instances, their substitutes
Ind practically no visible means of
support mid so offered their services.
If England u*ks for reci nits to semi to
South Africa ii matters not to Canada
what class of people go, ihat is Eng
land's lookout, but when Canada asRs
tor reci nits for this pui pose and sends
tii nn mil ihere as practically a sample
of her men, the Dumiuiun govern-
nvnt should .sec in it thnt so long as
there are enough Canadians offering
their services in make up lhe number
required, Canadians and Canadians
ahiiie should be sent and thpy mscive
under Canadian officers. Then again
too much favoritism is displayed in
selecting rei mils. Ihe question pf
who nre tu be accepted seems to be
practically settled-before the date set
for lbe ivciuiiing officers lo accept
applicants, friends ot the recruiting
seigiants appaienlly being given the
preference. Uuder the circumstances
here .et forth we would suggest that
tie name uf tbe Canadian Mounted
Infantry-he-changed to that of the
Aiig'uSiixluii Mounted Infantry.
The following is an extract from E.
V. Bodwell's magnificent speech made
at Victoria last .Monday night: "To
What extent is Ihe husiuess of this
cuunlry suffering by the fact that tile
Govi rumctit wnuld unl make it possihle to commence the building of tlie
Coast. Kootenay railway this year, and
the completion and operation of it in
lie early future? It seems to me that
it-is utterly ridiculous, that the Government have not acted prudently, or
wisely iu thai transaction, They nre
convicted oui. of their own mouth.
What do ihey tell ns to day. \\ hat is
the telegram to lhe Colonial from the
special ngent of Ihe Government, Mr,
'.Vols? They say thai, the Const, Knot-
em v unit" is feasible. I told them
that la*i yen-. 'We hive found out it
is in ihe interest of the country lo
build tbrt road.' I told Ihem lasl
v.  ii      ii il  the who! ■ country   was
of ihe 0, r.  ".   '-mat  »"» -	
months ago. We snid it was iieces-
sary to give the people of British
Columbia the benefit ofa competitive
system. They suyi tWe aie ready
now to enter upon lhat project.' \\ h>
didn't they do it lust year when they
had 28 members at their hack, and
could put tbrtjUgh any policy ihey
chose to bring down. Why is U '"'b'
nnw, on Ihe eve of an election, that
promises nre made ubout things thai
should have been performed before,
and yon nre asked to give credit lo an
adininistalion which promises to do lii
lbe future that wliieh thev should
have performed in the pasl?" The
foregoing explains the governments
policy in connection with tbe building
of lbe Const Kootenay railway, at thu
present time, which is, like we nfti n
see on pricelists regarding the pi ices
therein oontuined, subject to change
without'further notice,   The govern-
nent's policy regarding this road is
one thing to day and would he iinotb
or if it had a majority in tlie house after it meets. It is a bait thrown out
to the opposition members in its last
dying hope of snving itself from the
most agonizing political death thai
has laid low any of the governments
whose graves uow ornament the British Columbia government graveyard.
This modified railway policy may be
the means of inducing some of the
weaker-brained class of members, who
come under tlie head of uncertainties,
into joining the government ranks, o_i
overbalancing to the government
side, one or more of the members
who are now astride the fence
separating tin* government from the
opposilion, who through courtesy hnve
been termed Independents, but no
policy of the government, no matter
how it was pledged to curry it out wili
in the least uller the minds of the lo\
al opposition. The government in its
narrow minded Iactits regarding lite
building of Ihe Coast-Kootenay rail
wny has delayed Ihe building of this
mud at least a year, which, according
tothe estimate of Mr. Smith Curl is.
who is a capable, judge ot,. the resotir
ces of the country benefitted by the
building of such rond, hns been tin-
menus nf delaying an increased inin
eral output of over fifty million dollars from tlie country effected hy t In-
building of the roud. Public opinion
was strong a yenr ago over the const ruction of this rond. There were a
number of people at thut time who
■nred but litlle who built it so long ns
i roud was built, hut loduy these people do cere what conipany builds it.
They have found that the C. ]'. R's
dog-in-tbe manger policy, which War.
upheld hy the   government,   has  pre !
ented the building of uny roud, am .
these same people who a year ngi'
were indifferent us to what eouipanj
constructed this roud, are today tin
most pronounced in their views favoring a competitive line. A year ngl
i lie majority of the people of; t he province favored a competitive line. To
day that majority is greatly inrreased,
so lhat no power on earth shall pre
vent tbe Coast-Kootenay road fron;
being built by ucnnipetitive-cninpuiiy.
The people of the province wish it und
their wishes must and shall he respect
ed.
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, itis an
investment.

enough ore now in sight lo give a net
profit of $1,221,000. The tonnage in
reserve is estimated at 481,000 tons.
On the basis of 20,000 tons a month,
whicli is ahout the normal rate of shipment, there is enough ore in sight to
keep Ihe mine running for Iwo years,
even though no fresh ore supplies are
opened. Mr, Freeheville's report on
the condition of the bottom of the
urinals especially interesting. He says
thnt on lho lowest level there is un ore
hody 21 feel wide, averaging $15 a ton.
The average value of all the ore in the
mine is $11.75 a ton, and that lhe total
cost, of treating it iu future should be
nol more than $().
Mr. Precheville's report, was cabled
to the company from Hossland under
date of November 23. It has been
made public by the directors in a circular, together wilh some explanatory
remarks.
Mr. Frecheville  wired :  "Auditors
make the prolit from mine and smelting works for the year ending June HO,
$5X5,(XK).   This was used fnr improvements.   All llu-plant is first class.   I
I'Stimale tlu* reserve of ore at this date
above the MO foot level, 484,000 tons of
2,ti(K) pounds | 'yabia per ton, Jgl 1.7o.
The total cost, of treating per  Ion  in
future ought nol lo exceed $0.   The
lowest level in  the mine, so  far as
driven,      shows   a   shoot   of   ore
170 feel, in length and 24 feet in widlh.
It assays un an average $15.75 per tun.
The shafl   is down  1050 feet,    Will
start driving levels as early as possible.
Inventory November 23rd at smelting
woiks shows ore and matte on hand
and  in  iransil  and   supplies worth
$1,45,000.   At the mine the low grade
ote dump Is worlh $100,000 net."
The directors add : "Your directors
wish lo give the following explanatory details simultaneously with the
examination of the inine by Mr.Kroche-
ville. An audit of the books of the
company at Uossland has been conducted by Messrs Price, Waterhouse
k Oo. The audit shows a profit for
Ihe year ending June 30, 1001, of
£120.570, all of which lias been expended on improvements on yonr
property, the result being thai the
mine is thoroughly Well equipped wilb
all the most approved modern machinery, and the capacity ot the smelt-
inn works, whicli are excellent in con
strttction and design, and filled with
all the latest labor saving appliances,
has heen largely increased.
"Tbe 000-foot level, which is the
lo .vest level as yet opened up in the
mine, appears lo us to be highly satisfactory. The lodes. >is far ,i*- tested,
are rf gooa width and high grad -.
'Mr. Frecheville in a letter lo the
board says Ihal h p-yshootnn Ihis
level satrted with a width o 12 fee't,
and in I he 170 feet of drivage done it
has opened to a width of 35 feet in Ihe
face. This, of course, is a matter of
Ihe most vital importance in estimating tbe future profits of Ihe mine,
showing as it does that Ihe values of
the ore are more than maintained at
this tie greatest depth exploited.
"The liquid assets as given hy Mr.
Frecheville amount to £233,506 In
addition to this there are about £20,
000owing to the company hy other
companies, which will shortly be paid
