Although those in charge nf the New
Fairview Corporation's Stemwinder
mine are reticent as to the results of
recent work in the mine it has heen
asceitained from a thoroughly reliahle
source that a marked Improvement
has lakeii place in the grade of ore lie
ing mined at the3()0-ft. level, so thai if
no financial difficulty arise during the
next two or three mouths the mine
will thereafter he in receipt of regular
returns lhat will place it, upon a more
satisfactory hasis in regard to the value of its product than it has been in
in the past,
The Stemwinder has experienced
many difficulties, but a shortage of ore
has never been one of ils troubles, Ihe
low grade rather Hum the quantity
having been the chief obstacle to its
success. Now, ;however, tbat the
whole body of ore in the stope at the
300 level, having a width of about 33
teet, is carrying appreciably higher
values, s,i that the outlook is distinctly
hetter than at any previous time in
the history of the mine.
Early lust year the property wns reported on by Mr. E, S. Thurston, a
New York mining engineer of good
standing, who examined the mine for
Messrs. Goi*derhaiu and Blaekslock, of
Toronto, in the course of his report
Mr. Thurston thus described Ihe veins,
character of the ore and the min3
workings :—Running through the full
length of the claim and traceable for
several thousand feet additional
through adjoining claims, are three
strong, well-detined, parallel veins,
with a northwest and south-east
strike and a dip to Ihe north-east of
about 80 degrees. Tlie formation is
highly metainorphised stratified rork*
and the veins conform strictly with
the stratification of the formation.
The ore is a milky whitequarlz, carrying gold and silver in the form of free
gold and sulphurets, the latter consisting of iron pyrites, galena, chalcopyrite
and, in the 1101 th vein especially, occasional bunches of blende. The
quartz also has a sl ratified structure
with cleavage planes parallel to the
walls of the vein and identical with
those of the formation. Most of the
development work has been done on
the middle one of the three veins,
culled the main vein, the other two
being known respectively as the north
vein and south vein. It consists of a
well-timbered incline shaft,6ft liy lift,
in the clear, sunk on an incline of 80
degrees for 200 ft." After describing
the workings at the first and second
levels Mr. Thurston continued :—
■■Throughout this work on the main
vein the quartz is exposed without, a
break and, as a rule, with only part of
the vein exposed, it being wider than
the drifts. There are two crosscuts
from wall tn wall on the second level,
18 and 20ft. long, respectively, but
there is reason to believe that they
aie in an exceptionally wide place as
the surface croppings above them are
34ft. wide, although fl to 8 fl, is about
the average width along the surface."
The results of two mill runs, at different mills, was given by Mr. Thurston,
one lieing of 200 tons Irom the main
vein which returned values per ton
$3.10 in bullion and $2.10 iu concentrates, with an average loss in tailings
of (X) cents per ton, the total value uf
the ore having been $0.10 per ton,
The second run, on 350 tons fnun the
main vein and 1B0 tons from the north
vein, gave a return of bullion $1.21
per ton and concentrates $2,00, the
average loss in tailings having in this
instance, owing to defects in thu saving appliances, been $1.10 per ton
Mr. Thurston estimated that with a
OO-stainp mill capable of crushing 150
tons per day Ihe cost of milling, con
centrates would not exceed 75 cents
per ton, and might ho brought, under
ci'i'tain.siiggi'sl.eil conditions, as low ns
80 cents por luu,  The coat of mining
the ore and delivering it at the lllill
was placed at $1.50 to $1,75 per ton.
No allowance wus made in these estimates for administration. These figures are here quoted for the purpose
nf exemplifying the probability of the
correctness nf the contention of the
present management that they are
mining and delivering the ore at the
mill for less than $1.75 per ton. As
some of lhe concentrates are being
shipped lo Everett, Wash,, it is possible that the cost, of treating these will ,
he larger, owing lo transportation
The present condition of the mine is
that the character nf the big body of
nre above mentioned as heing worked
at the third level, which i.i a hundred
feet deeper than the workings Mr.
Thurston examined, is for its whole
width, quite changed from a milky
white to a bluish gray quartz freely
mineralized throughout with pyrite
and galena, with increased values and
presenting the appearance of being
a permanent payshoot. Further improvements made by the mine manager, Mr. Chas, Ostenhurg, to the concentrating plant, has overcome a
difficulty previously experienced in
cyaniding the concentrates, an ingenious contrivance of his now separating
the galena from the pyrites and admitting of the latter being effectively
treated on the spot whilst the galena
concentrates are being shipped via
Penticton to Everett,
The stamp mill is now running 48
stamps and milling about 100 tons of
ore daily, and the work of adding 20
stamps from the Smuggler mill is well
forward, foundations being in readiness, mortar blocks in and nearly all
of 1 he additional plant on the ground,
with only the mortars yet to be hauled
from the Smuggler mill site, distant
about a mile and a half. The cyanide
plant has heen installed and is in operation, ami mining is in progress at
all three levels-100, 200, and 300 ft.-
of the mine, with some 30 men on the
The Dominion Consolidated Mines
Company, which owns the Flora, .
Western Hill and Virginia claims, ou :
the same veins as the Stemwinder, has
half a dozen men prospecting these
veins on the surface. This company
has done some 1,200 feet of tunnelling,
the conformation of its ground lieing
much more favorable to cheap working than that of the new Fairview
company, the veins heing workable to 1
a considerable deplh by adits, It is
claimed that tbe ore on the Doniinion
company's claims is similar in general
character to that in Ihe Stemwinder
hut that it is of a little better grade,
the average heing slated at between
$8 and $7. This company also has
water rights covering the Okanagan
Falls and it is endeavoring, to raise
capital for the purposeot there develop*
ing power for mining and other purposes at Fairview and neighborhood.
It is earnestly hoped that it will sue-
ced in this, for the provision of dec*
trie power in a mining district so dis*
advantageouslysituated as is Fairview
in regard to fuel supply (neighboring
coal measures not yet being opened up)
would much faciliate the successful
development of its hig bodies of comparatively low grade ore.

Readers of Barrie's story of newspaper life, "When a Man's Single,"
will remember the telegraph editor
who headed the dispatch beginning
"The Zulus have taken umbrage" with
a line announcing that i he Zulus had
captured a post, and made lhe opening
sentence read : "The Zulus have taken
■Umbrage." The incident is recalled
by a dispatch in the Ottawa Evening
Journal dated "Daiilphin, Man., June

voting in the Kinistino district in lhe
Territorial elections. The dispatch
states i "As a result of the vote,

About 400 Hen Oo Out at the Crow
Neat Pass Coal Company's
Coal Mines.
Fernib, June 28,—With the advent
of the new general manager of the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal company, a regulation which added half an hour to
the men who were working day work
in the mine was put into effect and tbe
men quit work in consequence.
At. a, largely atlended meeting held
in Princess hall on Tuesday evening,
the union decided to call out the men,
There were only seven voices raised
against this decision out of about 200
members present.
The mines had just resumed wnrk.
Nearly all of the men had.heen idle for
the past month, and consequently they
are in a poor position to stand a
strike. Everything is quiet at present
and no trouble is anticipated. How
long the strike will last is bard to predict as the management of the cumpauy are firm in the stand they take.
Aliout 100 men are affected by the

"The readers of your paper will not
have forgotten the dreadful catastrophe that has recently befallen this
town, through which some 130 men
and boyB have met their doom.
"Another blow is now heing struck
at those who are left to mourn the
death of Iheir comrades. It has been
the rule at these mines (the Goal Creek
mines) since their being opened up and
managed by four consecutive managers, that eight hours from bank to
bank constitute a day's work. There
has been no apparent disagreement hetween the employers and employees
regarding this question until the advent of Mr. Tonkin, the new manager,
who has, without consulting or even
giving any notice to the effect, ordered that the men must work eight hours
at the coal face, und not as hefore
eight hours from bank lo bank, To
some of the men this would mean
pratically a nine hour shift, in other
words, nine hours from bunk to hank
instead of as bef nre, eight.
"This course of action is apparently
an endeavor to establish a precedent
not in vogue In any part of British
"In the mines at Nanaimo and others on the island, the men descend and
ascend within the eight, hours.
"It is true that un eight-hour law
has not been established in this province for the simple reason that all the
coal mines have iin eight-hour law of
their own and the necessity had not
arisen for this to lie hy law established,
We the miners employed ut the Coal
Creek mines, are not willing that this
custom he changed after it has been in
vogue so long, and therefore we have
resolved to stand against it.
"We have resolved to stand against
what seems to be an encroachment
upon the rights of the laboring men.
Shall we stand alone?
"We appeal to every hardy eon of
toil to stand with us,
"Autocracy hus reigned too long in
this 'tre.' land.
"We love our freedom and appreciate equal rights, To fair-minded masters we offer corresponding inlerest,
but we are not willing to tolerate anything that savors of 'lake all and give
"Therefore, be it resolved, that we,
the miners at the Coal Creek mines,
nuiKe a stand against any infringinent
of the long standing precedent of eight
hours from hank lo bank constituting
a day's labor, and also that we make
ati appeal to the member of this constituency to present a bill before the
house to make eight hours in the
twenty-four from hank to bank to he
embodied in the law of tbis province."
Fernik, June 27.-J, H. Tonkin, lhe
new manager of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal company's colliei ies on Coal creek,
has issued the following statement relative to lhe causes leading up to the
present strike of the miners:
"Owing to the shortage of men, re
sulting from the recent explosion, the
company considers it would lie better
for all concerned to put the mines on a
single shift basis, in place nf the three
shifts as heretofore.
"This plan would give the miner a
hetter opportunity, as each would have
his own room to attend to and would
keep ihe mines in a far better and.
safer condition. ,  .
"The company hands, who are day
nien, object to the system as it, requires them to fulfil their obligation to
the company of eight hours' work
for eight hours' day. Under the old
system tbey worked from six and a
half to seven hours.
"The company do not ask more than
eight hours' work for eight hours' pay,
but do insist on having that.
"Upon advising the nien lo this effect a small meeting was held by some
members of Gladstone Miners Union,
and a strike was ordered."

Provincial constable Darraugh
brought to Greenwood nn Thursday's
train an Italian named Joseph Co*
tonzo whom he arrested the previous
day at Parrel), on the Colunihia k
Western railway, on a charge of having assaulted with intent another
Italian named Angelo Pasco. It is
stated that, last October, whilst both
men were employed at maintenance
work on the railway near Phoenix,
Pasco assaulted Costonzo, for which
offence he was prosecuted and lined
915. Three weeks laler he passed the
place where Costonzo was camped and
the latter followed him down the railway line and felled him with a heavy
hammer or maul. Leaving Pasco
senseless where he fell. Costonzo
skipped out immediately. Pasco was
unconscious for three days and ill from
the effects of the assaults for some
timelongei, Recently Mr. Darraugh
learned of Costonzn's whereabouts, he
being employed on the railway hetween Gladstone and the Columbia,
so on Wednesday he arrested him at
Farron, took him to Nelson for the
night, and Thursday brought him to
Greenwood to answer to the charge
brought against him.
In tbe County Court of Yale, sitting
at Greenwood last Wednesday, before
His Honor Judge Leamy and a jury,
the case of Richard H. Hutchens vs,
the B, C, Copper Conipany, Ltd., in
which plaintiff sued to recover the sum
of 9UI8.25 alleged to lie due to him by
defendants, was heard. The circumstances attendant upon this matter
were that a few weeks ago Frederick
Keffer, general manager for the defendant conipany. informed Hutchens,
wbo was superintendent of the com
pany's Mother Lode mine, situate near
Greenwood, that the company bad decided to let all underground mining
work by contract so as to reduce tbe
cost of this work, which at the low
price of copper was loo high for the
company to continue underground
work without furlher loss. The manager states that he fully informed
Hutchens what the reasons were for
this decision on the part of tbe company. The miners were invited to bid
for the work on contract, but with
such an unsatisfactory response that
the manager suspected some secret
influence was at work to induce them
not to do so, or, if tbey did bid, only
at much higher rates than the company was already paying by day's
labnr. At the close of tbe month of
April Hutchens gave thirty days'
notice of his intention to leave the
company's service, but the manager,
having what he believed to he conclusive evidence that he had encouraged
the miners not to bid for contract
work, summarily dismissed him,
Hutchens thereupon brought action
to recover the sum of $1,2(10, which he
claimed was due to him as back pay
on au alleged agreement to pay him a
higher wage than his regular pay of
8175 per month whenever the number
of men at the mine should increase
beyond a stated number ; a further
sum of |2!5 which he claimed was due
him as wages for May, and gSJ.25 value
of fuel, light and bouse rent, wbich
the company would have had to supply bim with had be remained in iu
employ during May, as he contended
he had the right lo so remain, The
cross examination of plaintiff by
defendanl'-i counsel, who contend
ed lhat plaintiff was dismissed
for cail»e, was with the object
of showing that plaintiff had been dis
obedient to the orders of tho company,
had secretly opposed its plans to work
its mine contract and had been abusive
to tbe company's general manager,
Several witnesses were called to sup
port these contentions. The jury
awarded plaintiff $176, being one
monl h's pay without costs, Tbe judge
pointed out to the juiy tbat they had
nothing to do with costs, which must
follow the event. It is slated that
the defendant company will most
likely appeal the case to lbe supreme
court, on tbe grounds that the verdict
was in opposition to the weight of evidence submitted.
