on  Fairview camp.   Although inter*
estingitis too long tu tv-produce in
•  Thk Advanck in full, hut the following is taken irom it.:
A Free Milling Belt.
The higgi'Sl quartz showings in Fair-
view camp ure found in a belt of
schists beginning within a mile or so
north uf the town and running westerly for several miles through the
granite formation which is general in
this region. In thiszone occur several
parallel quartz 'edges remarkable for
their width and persistence as to
length. The surface outcroppings of
these veins lire traceahleon the surface
over a distance of about 9,(100 feet, or
nearly two miles. To this belt the
development in Fairview cainp is now
confined, with the Consolidated Company as the chief operators.
On my way out to see the Stem-
winder I  visited the  Morning Star,
which is one of the. properties on the
belt in question lying nearest to the
town.   Upon it within an aggregate
width of a few hundred feet occur out
croppings of ihree of Ihe huge ledges
ivhich are spoken about above as having been traced for nearly two miles
across the country.    Each of thpse
leads incisures from seven to twenty-
feet in width, and I am informed thai
out of some sbahow workings which I
visited some years ago were   taken
2,71)0 tons of ore, which yielded $33,000
in gold.   This property is owned by
Stephen Mangott and D. McKacliern.
Several other properties adjoining the
Morning Star carry ihe same ledges,
and two miles further on, beyond the
old Strathyre mill lies the Stemwinder.
At the Stemwinder.
Within a total width of 500 feet occur four led -es, three of which have
already been described as occurring on
the Morning Star.   Their outcroppings
can be traced for -1,500 feet across   the
three locations to the west.   Koundly
speaking these four ledges show an
aggregate surface widtli of 50 feet, and
development work done to date indicates that these ore bodies maintain
their full width  with  depth.    The
underground workings of the'property
are   remarkably   well  timbered and
everything about the mine i.s in shipshape oiiler,   Tlie main ledge upon
which the company has sunk its permanent shaft is eight feet wide on the
surface, and for over 100 feet it has a
dip of 45 degrees, but below that level
the lode straightens up,

drift rims under a rising hill and there-
fore al its face il, gives a depth of over
300 feel on a solid ore body from eight
lo 20 feel, in widlh. At this level 2:10
feel of drifting has also been done on
lln* main ledge towards Ihe east, in
which direction lhe oie body is of similar size,
From ibis second level,from neariho
bottom nf the shaft, a crossrul is being
run to catch ihe southerly vein of the
properly, This crosscut ts now iu 181
feel, uml wil hin a few feet more it is
expected to lap nl the 200 foot level the
third vein before referred to as outcropping on the surface, When Ihis
crosscut succeeds in ils purpose Ihe
company wili huve lis three main
ledges all opened by mentis of ils main
shaft and connected workings. The
north.ledge, by the way.wherecrosscut
at this level, is as wide and as strong
as on the surface and first level, and
100 feet of drifting Ims been done upon
it,
Ore Values Obtained,
The quartz varies from a milky
white to blue in color and is of a very
friable character, being as a lesult
readily broken down and easily
crushed. It carries iron pyrites,
galena and some zluc blende, with
gold and silver as the valuable minerals, As to ore values it may he said
that they range Irom a few cents to
$50 per ton, Imt the deposits on the
whole constitute a decidedly low grade
proposition. By a systematic, sampling
of each part of the mine as work has
progressed fiom day to day the management has arrived at the conclusion
thatiill theorem the three ledges so far
as opened up will average 1J5 per ton,
These assay tests have been checked
hy a mill test of 200 tons of ore taken
irom different parts of the Workings.
This mill run yielded 11 ounces of gold
on the plates and 0000 pounds of concentrates, assaying $152 to the ton.
The gross value of the 200 tons was
$1307, or $0.53 per ton.
With the idea of further substantiating the tests already made the management will iu a few days begin a
mill run of a thousand tons of ore
representative of all lbe slopes In the
mine- The run will lie mude with the
old Smuggler mill, which is now in
possession of lhe corporation and
which will hand!-* 50 Ions of ore per
day. Mr. Kussell expects that this
run will give mi average result of $5
per Ion, and, if il does, il is likely Ihe
mill will be kept running until the
5.0) tons of ore on the dump hus been
put through.
Cost of Mining and Hilling.
As the Sleinwiuder has wood and
water handy, Mr. Russell, the managing director, figures that he ran
keep the cost of mining down to $1 per
ion and the expense of milling down
to the same figure which on the est!-
mated average value of the ore would
leave a margin of $3 per ton profit, tn
making these low estimates of mining
aud milling, reference is mude to the
Alaska Tieadwell mine, al which with
a5(0 stamp mill ilv cost of mining
and milling «as brought down to 05
cents per Ion, the average value of ore

From a point 75 feet below the collar
of the shaft a drift has been run along WOi'M at a prolit being only $2.02
the ledge for 180 feet to the west, all
the way iu ore. The ledge is well defined on this level and throughout
most of the drifts only one wall is in
sight, tbe ore not having been removed
from the other. There is 10 feet of ore
on the face in thin level, From Ibis
drift a crosscut has been run 88 feet to
intersect tlie north ledge, which is
seven feet wide at tlie point where it
is tapped. From the end of this crosscut 120 feet of drifting, all in ore, has
been done on the north ledge andfroni
this drift again an upraise has been
made through 110 feet of ore to the
surface. Both these veins have been
opened further to the east by surface
tunnels 175 feet and 70 feet in length,
respectively, nil in ore and giving a
back of 70 feet on each ledge.

To return to the main workings,
below lhe 100-foot level, owing lo lhe

At lhe 176-foot level a crosscut was run
from lhe main shaft to catch the ledge
aud it look only 22 feet of work to
Intersec'. that body. Al this deplh
the ledge is found lo be wider and
stronger than at lhe surface or at lhe 75-
foot level. Where caught by the crosscut it measures about 19 feet across
and at other points at ihia depth the
body of clear quartz widens out to over
20feet. Atlhislevel on this vein a
drift has been run for 450 feet west, In
ore the enlire distance, lhe ledge show

Of course lo obtain lhe results mentioned the ore would bave lobe treated
on a large scale, and for ibis purpose
frnm  00 to  100  stamps    would   be
required.   It is   h<  Intention of the
management, when the preliminary
run of 1000 tons is completed, to proceed lo secure 40 extra slumps und  to
thus raise the  ilumber lo OU,  which
will lie installed close lo the ore dun p,

The Hour of Peril.
Britain is now at its worst in South

The republic-! have no reserve force.
The British Iroops in South Africa are
a mere handful. The Salisbury Government has been playing between
iwo fires. Fear of offending ihe Cape
Diileh by landing a sufficient force in
South Africa bus lieen supplemented
by a dread that the Liberals in Bug-
land would shriek if anything were
done to effectually safeguard Ilritish
Interests In _outh Africa. If the
Boers bad been dealing wiih Germany
or Russia il would have been different,
Iu lhe III*! place the Boers would have
never been tolerated as n semi-indcpcn-
denl power. And if Germany oi Russia hud been'in fear of trouble with a
border slate, Iroops would have been
lushed in regardlesi of public opinion,
The Salisbury Government was afraid
lo protect Briiish inleiesls In South,
Africa by landing a force big enough
to give lhe Boers a chance to shout
thai their independence wus threatened. The result is that Britain is
temporarily Weak, and the most thai

"MIDWAY THE BEAUTIFUL."
 -♦—-
A britf History of Midway and
a Summary of its Advantages.
A Picturesque Townsite Affording
Special   Inducements  for
Business and Residence
Purposes.
Itis very gtneially admitted that
Midway is the best natural site for a
town in the Boundary district, Itwas
formerly known as Eholt's, after the I
original pre-emptor of the i;u„| |. j
was purchased from Mi-, |„ Eholl in
1592 by Capt. 1«. C, Adams, of Montreal,   P.  Q„ ami several associates,
The original townsite was plaited in
1898 by Messrs. Kirk <t Ritchie, pro-
vincial [and surveyors, now of Hos*.
bind. The town was named Boundary
City, but as another place had already
been similarly named a new name,
had to be found fur this town before
registration could be secured, Oapt,
Adams eventually decided upon the
name of Midway for llu- reason thnl
ilie lown is situate aliout. midway in
British Columbia between the Rocky
Mountains and the I'm ilie Ocean, The
first Townsile Agent w,w ihe late Mr,
H. P. Palmerslon and the Krst sale of
lots was made in 18H in Mr, John
Douglas, who still resides in the town.
A Picturesque Townsite.
Midway certainly is a most picturesque and beautiful site for a town.
Occupying a broad, level plain at the
continence of Boundary Cieek with
Keitle Itiver and :it lhe meeting place
of three valleys, wilh ihe intervening
mountains rjsihg around il, it commands general admiration, But the
advantages that all uch toilssiugularly
favorable location are not scenic alone,
for, lying in the only natural pass
through the mouniaius east and wesl
fot a longdistance, il appeals destined
to become an important point on the
chief highway Ihrough ihe district,
Here meet Ihree main wagon roads
which come in from the Okanagan
country and Oamp McKinney on the
west, Ihe mining camps of Ihe Colville
Indian Reservation mi the South, ami
the extensive area of mineral bearing
country comprising Ihe Boundary
Creek dislrict lying ioiniediati-lyto the
north. Here, loo, for some lime will
life the terminus of the Columbia and
Western railway now nearlycompleted
and width will give rail connection
with the Kootenay and thence northwards to Ihe C P. It. main line or eastwards via the Crow's Nest railroad.
And when competing railways shall
come in il will be here that a road from
Spokane via Hep'tblic and another
from Ihe Colon hia Itiver iipthcAmeri-
can Okanogan via the Palmer Mnuu-I
uiii and MeyeisOreek mining districts,
will junction, These important natural advantages therefore appear to
warrant Ihe expectation lhat when
trade nnd population shall have
adapted tbemselvestotuorepermaueni,
conditions than now prevail Midway
will become.
A Distributing Centre
for a wide area of country, including
-tune ot lbe mining camps of Boundary
Creek, those of upper mam Kettle
Itiver and its numerous tributaries,
Can p McKinney, and I hose in Northern Washington south to Republic in
one direction and south-west through
Meyers Oreek lo Palmer Mountain in
another. Being on the Keitle Kiver
and, as well, centrally situated for
jnanufucl tiring purposes, it should
eventually secure an important and Increasing manufacturing connection,
the more so sin, e having railway transportation facilities, il will be practicable io bring in materials for industrial
uses i,t low freight lales. The fuel
thai ihe Canadian PaclHc Railway
Company is interested loaconsiilerable
•■stent in the town and Immediate
vicinity is an additional advantage in
its favor, since ii assures to lhe lown
the influence und support of that
powerful company, which has already
expressed ils intention to make Midway a divisional poinl and I be junction
of iwo branch inilways,
Asa residence town Midway stands
alpne 111 Ihe Boundary Creek districl.
No other lown in the district can
honestly claim i» enjoy similar advantages from n health point of vie,v,
With a dry bracing atmosphere, an
abundanl supply of pure'water, favor-
able sanitary conditions, ah entire absence of contagious diseases, ample
'.,„„,, for nut-door sports, and level
roads for riding, driving, cycling, etc,,
it is without doubt
Unequalled as a Residence Town

ptipn of the C. Ac W. Railway to Mid
ty Mr. Tye was very emphatic in his
uranoes that the track will lie laid
Pig the remaining seven miles to
Iway just aa soon aa Ihe rails ran be
aincd for this purpose.   He pointed
kthat the C. P. R. Company hns

'her will it lose a comparatively
ge sum of money, the extra cost of
ving to shovel snow off the grade,
Jis being an additional expenditure
which would lie avoided wei-e the rails pan les
obtainable at. once. "No" said he "no in,pre*
representations Midway people can lulling
make, no matter to whom made, will
expedite matters, unless it l-e that they
can induce the Carnegie works to send
tbe rails along Immediately."
It was ascertained from Mr. Tye that
the freight and travel over the new
road is already larger than the 0. P, R.
Co. anticipated it would lie. He now
thinks it prnliahle a similar experience
will be met with when the road shall
have l>een opened lo Midway uud the
mining camps lo the wesl aud southwest use Ihis towu as their railroad point. Respecting railway
buildiugs to be erected at Midway,
there will be a slalion, fieigbl shed,

Midway Progress Association.
Twenty residents attended tbe public
Uieeting held at the Oakland Hotel last
Wednesday evening for the purpose of
appointing a committee to watch over
tbe public interests of the town and to
take such action to advance then, as
may from time to time appear desirable.
Mr. Wm. Powers was appointed chair*
man and Mr. 0, M. Grouse, secretary.
After discission it was resolved to
form an Association to lie designated
the Midway Progress Association and
a motion constituting those present
who would become members such an
association was carried. Fourteen
signified their wish to be enrolled a.s
meml-ers. After further discussion it
was decided to meet again in the same
place next Wednesday evening at 8
o'clock, to which Lime the elei tion of
an executive committee was deferred.
It was agrcd that meanwhile the fact
that lbe association had lieen formed
should lie made more generally known
and that all other residents in the town
and neighborhood who desire to do st,
shall las accorded an opportunity of
becoming members en that evening
and of then having a voice in the election of the officers and committee.   A

correspondent; "If President Hill, of

charter for two years authorizing the
building of a line from Republic to tbe
International boundary, will nol give

the road next summer, Connection

The Mother Lode.
The main shaft of the Mother Lode
mine, in Deadwood cump, is now down
300 feet and is all in ore estimated to
average in value at least $15 to the ton.
AfU-r sinking a fe«v fi*et deeper for a
sump a station  will   he cut  out and
ihen drifting at the 300-foot level will
l" commenced.  The north drift at the
I'JOO foot level is now 510 feet from the
il, Ut ui i tdk -ouy of ore that will run ,„iiu__________________________
about $1$. For the last 120 feet this manl added that Mr. Hill says further
drift has been al' in ore of good grade, that when he does build into Republic
All upraise will shortly be started at j it will not he up theSan Poil river, but
4110 feet in to connect this level with I from a line

President Hill snd the Republic
Railway.
A press despatch from St. Paul,
states that "The Ureal Northern will
not build its Republic line this year.
This information conies from a high
official  of the company.   This infor*
the old workings alxive. As the winze
from the old crosscut tunnel is down
only 186 feet there is slill a distance
of 140 feel to Ik- holed through lo make
lhe intend,sl connect ion between old
and new workings. When ihis shall
have beetldone the ventilation for this
part of the i,line will Is- all that can he
desired.    Owing tothe very bad  slate
„f ibe roads around the mine great
difficulty is just now being experienced
in keeping the furnaces supplied  with
cord wood.

Two Enterprising Men.
Th, Grand I* oiks press correspondent
has sent ihe following interesting
informal ion to Tiik aiivvnck:-
liu,„»r has lately connected the nam,'
of Mr. Jay P. Graves with a project
for the construction of a railway from
(irand Forks to Republic. "If nobody
else undertake it we sunll he prepared
io la,ild the road next year" said Mr.
(ii-aves lo your correspondent "Nn
doubt our smeller huilding at Grand
Forks would receive considerable tonnage front the Republic mines. The
railway, of rourse, would he of standard gauge, and the rates would not be
excessive. The smelter hete, on account of lis advantageous location,
should Ih, able to treat ores as cheaply
as out compel itors,"
It is noteworthy that Mr, Clarence,1.
McCuaig, the Montreal mining opera*
tor, who successfully floated the Payne,
he intends to construct
into the Okanogan country. A business man who bas mining interests in
Republic ramp recently sounded Mr.
Hill on the matter of his proposed
line into Republic, and quotes the
Greal Northern chief as saying:
" '1 shall nol Imilil in there at present. The tonnage will not justify the
extension. The mi's there yield to
local treatment, and those fellows need
not expect ine to Imild a railroad to
haul out noiliing bill gold bullion.'"
