An slated in our last issue we will
thia week give a description of the
Waterloo mine at Clamp McKinney,
which, through the kindness ot Capl.
How?, superintendent of the property,
a representative of ihis paper was
recently shown through.
The Waterloo is owned liy the
Waterloo Mining and Milling company of Spokane. The property was
located in the spring of 18U7. The surface oi'e afforded very line specimens
of free gold, occuring as plates in a
dark lilue coarse grained quart/,. Preliminary work consisted of a shaft
near the west end of the property,
sunk to a depth of 40 feet. The ledge
was ihen stripped towards the east
and almut 300 feet away a second shaft
was sunk on a cropping of quartz con-
taining free gold. This one was put
down 80 feet and at, the 00 foot level
drifts were rim 40 feet in an easterly
ind __0 feet in a westerly direction.
Vfter going I'll feet iu this latter drif 1
the ore hody was encountered and
wns sloped out to surface, which, ow
ing lo the incline of the surface, was
85 feet. The di ift was then continued
100feet, Init not quite far enough io
reach the ore shown in the Ht_l shafl
mentioned, Underneath the slope a
winze was sunk lo a depth of 40 feel
and nt the bottom of this the ore body
has increased lo 7 feet in width. Tlie
fact that this width has heen attained
atlbisdepth Ib very encouraging in
deed", as lhe vein wherever previously
jMicountered only measured from 3 to
5 feel, and wilh its exceptionally high
values if the ledge even carries oul
Ihis width as depth is attained the
Waterloo is destined tn liecomeasec
nnd Cnritioo. The present work ron-
sists of sinking the shaft at 1 he east
end of the pro|ierty to the 150 foot
level, where a drift will lie run wesl 50
feel and an upraise mude lo tap the
ledge at the end of a drift run east
from the liottom of the winze. Should
this work prove the existence of lhe
increased ore Imdy the same method of
development now heing carried on
will lie continued, thai is to sink loa
greater depth, drift west and make
another upraise, when if successful
stuping will he commenced and the
mill again put in operation, hut nol
until such time as sufficient ore is in
sight to keep the mill running for a
consideralile length of time will milling
he resumed.
The present equipment consists of a
HO horse power vertical hoiler, a small
hoist and a Nn. & Cameron pump, sup
plied liy Ihe Jenckes Machine coinpaiiy.
The stamp mill consists of one 5
stamp liattery, a 50 hnrse power hoiler
and a 40 horse power engine, a Johnson
concentrator and a Blake crusher, ln
huilding the mill the nre hins, Inttttry
hlncks and concentrator floor were nil
constructed with a view to enlarging
the mill, hence the capacity nf the hat
Icry can he increased to the slumps
with very little trouble nr expense.
T.ie tramway letwertt the shaft aud
the mill is approximately 2SU feet in
length. Ore hins are to he Iniilt near
the shaft and a good supply of ore
may therefore always he kept in reserve.
The vein has a strike nf W. five degrees N„ and is almost vertical. The
ore is a dark hlue coarse looking
quartz carrying heavy hands of sul
phides (pyrites, blend and galena).
The result of the Hist months' run of
the stamp mill alter ils erection in the
fall nf IMI was a gold hiick valued al
About a year ago the funds ot the
company becoming exhausted, an appeal was made to the shareholders to
voluntarily agree In pay an assessment
nf-nne cent per share to be paid in
four, payments, one payment on April
1st and the others the lirst of May,
June and July, the company agreeing
to repay the amount- so advanced
from the flrst net profits of the mine,
with six per cent Interest, after the
indebtedness of the company wan paid
off. This appeal met with henrty re-*
ponse. and considerable money was
put Into the treasury. However the
amount received was not sufficient in
go on with the work and the secretary
of the company issued lhe following
circular to shareholders :
"The trustees announce to the stockholders that Ihe plan attempted lo
continue development by voluntary
assessments of 1 per cent per share has
failed, tt sufficient nunilier not respond
ing to the proposition to justify going
on with it. According to the promise
in the circular, the money already
paid in will be relurned.
"The mine and mill are now closed
down. Owing lo the manner in which
nur recent mining was done (being
more for prospecting the ore body
lhan for permanent working), the
handling of the ore was very expensive. The concentrator owned by the
company is worthless and does not
save the value in the ore, so that by
using it, in connection with the expense of extra handling of the nre, the
mill would not more lhan pay expen
ses. From the 15 days' run only $479 •
35 was caught 011 the plates.
"As staled in a former circular, the
company is in debt. The debt is close
lo $3,000. The trustees see no way 10
save your pioperty except by reorganizing into an assessable company. The
large majority of the stock is owned
by Canadians, and it is only fair that
the new companv should be a Canadian
company and managed by t hose having
ihe majority interest, So lhe trustees
are ready to call any stockholders'
meeting di-tiired lo volenti ilie question
of reorganization. It requires a large
vote tn reorganize, viz., two thirds of
the stock, hence we urge the Canadian
holders lo see to getting the stock
registered and securing tbe needed
"We can only say in conclusion that
in our opinion the property is a Unions, and will yet make a mine, The
nre is there in sight, but more work is
needed lo make it. pay."
Last Sept ember I he company decided
to disorganize and reincorporate on au
assessable basis, nnd later on this idea
was carried nut with its old enpitaliza
lion of 1,250,000 shares at a p-tr value
of 10 cents per share, holders of stock
in thu old company getting an equal
number of shares in the new. The
stuck was made assessable for 4 cents
per share, payable at a rate not to ex
ceed two mills per share per month.
This assessment, will bring the company aliout $50,000. Shareholders res.
ponded promptly, and sufficient funds
were provided 10 resume work on the
property. Capt. Howe, who has lieen
siici-e .fully connected with the man
agement of many well known properties, was put in charge with a crew of
right men, working two shifts, and
from the large amount of work Ihal
has been accomplished during lhe comparatively short time since work was
resumed the mine will soon be inn
position to again resume milling operations. Not wilh simply enough nre
iu sight to supply the mill frnm day lo
day, but with huge reseives Ibat will
guarantee its continued operation.
The result of the completion of the
presenl work mapped nut will he looked forward to with interest as it will,
to a certain extent, decide the future
of the property. The Hrst dividend on
the Cariboo wns paid out of $12 ore,
Hildas there is little doubt hut. that
Ihe ore in the Waterloo will average
$12 at least the mine should, under the
present able management, be ill a position before long to pay dividends and
thus reward lhe shareholders fnr tbe
faith they bave expressed, in such a
mai ked way, in thc property.

Vancouver, B. ('., March 81,—It is
reported lhat a contract was entered
into today between the Dunsmuir
government aud McLean Bros., contractors, of Spokane, for the construction of lhe Coast-Kootenay railway.
A cash subsidy nf $1,000 per mile is
to be given ami a bonus uf a million
acres of laud. Normnti nnd Hugh
McLean are iu Victoria today fixing
up lhe deal. It is understood that Ihe
contract will be submitted to the legislature in a joint liill with Mackenzie ft
Mann's Canadian Northern scheme.
The Coasl-Knoienay road will connect with Ihe Hill system at both ends.
At Ihe coast end it will join the Oreat
Northern sjsl em now under construction from Liverpool, on the Fraser
river, opposite New West minster, to
Ladnet, and with a ferry system from
Ladner to Sidney on Vancouver island,
Connection with Victoria will be had
liy means of the Victoria and Sidney
railway, while a branch will lie tun
frnm the month of lhe Fraser to Vancouver. In the Boundary country the
line wilt make connection Willi the
Hill system lo Spokane, known an the

This contract with the McLeans is
practically a victory for the V„ V. k
V,., as the McLeans obtained a charter
fm- that line, and have been lighting
bitterly in recent years against great
isld*. and powerful opposition lo get
government aid.
The sudden reversal nf the Dunsmuir
government's opposition lo theV., V.
ft K. is bel ieved 1 o be ow ing to I he fact
that it hopes to secure a favorable,
opinion fiom the public on lhe bill
embracing both the Canada Norlhern
and Coast Kootenay schemes, which it
could not, dn with the Mackenzie ft
Mann contract alone. It is considered
a clever move.
The announcement that McLean
liri'S. and the Dunsmuir government
ar- ananginga contiact for the construction of the Vancouver, Victoria
ft Eastern ratLvny may be taken as
marking the end of a most extraordinary and litter railway llghl.
In 1800 the Hist serious effort, was
put forward to secure the construction
uf 11 line that wnuld connect, the rich
mining districts In the Boundary
country with Vancouver and Victoria.
The merchants nf those two cities lmd
seen Spokane take the trade nf Rossland and ihen the Boundary, end ibey

line in order tn attempt to divert some
of the trade that was going to the vigorous capital of the Inland Empire,

It looked plain sailing at flrst, and
the Turner government, in 1(8)7, was
induced lo bring in a bill to aid the
const ruction of a railway from English
bluff, near Vancouver, to Midway, via
Penticton, a distance of 330 miles. Thn
aid was to be nt the rate of $4,1X10 a
mile, and the promoters of the V. V.

the Dominion government at Ottawa.
The bill passed the In.use. But ihat

The Installation of furnace No. 2 in
the Greenwood smelter is almost com
pleted and will soon bo ready for the
reduction of ore. What will delay
matters some will be thc putting in of
a new crusher at the mine. This is
being done and the delay will be a
matter of only a few days. The No. 2
furnace is a duplicate of thu No, 1. The
latter handles from C£, to -15() tons per
day and when tbe new furnace is in
operation 800 Urns every 21 hours cun
easily he reduced. With the Orand
Forks smelter turning out 1,600 tons
and the Greenwood plant 800 tons per
day the Boundary output during the
present year should be large. The
pyritie smelter will soon he leady for
operation and when this is an accomplished fact thc combined Boundary
smelter capacity will lie something
over 2,500 tons per dny. Fnur furnaces
ure now'in operation at the Granhy
smelter, which brings the cupaojly up
to 1,500 tons daily.

The Plain Truth.
All sorts of obstacles art' lieing placed
in the wny nf the construction of the
V. V. k E. railway in its attempt to
get. through lhe Boundary country.
The company has Imiil its trucks up to
thn lines of a certain ranch and are
prevented ft om going further hy an
armed hand of deputy sheriffs.   Thia
does not seem to he the proper spirit
to show on the part of the people of
the Boundary country.   For several
years the resident* of that section, and
particularly of Grand   Forks,   have
been anxious to secure a competing
line so that they might hare the hene
which it would hring.  Twice attempt
to secure a charter for the road was
defeated in parliament, although the
Boundary people sent delegates to the
seat of governiuenl lo assist in securing the charier, who made personal
appeals to the government to grant
Iheir prayers.    The attempts   were
balked, and mainly through the influence of the Canadian Pacitlc railway,
which last year received $100,000 for
Ihe transporlalion of ore and supplies
from nne Boundary company.   Now
that the V. V. k E. is built into the
Boundary and Ib carrying on the extension ot the enterprise wit hout either
n subsidy of money or land it is opposed hy sonic who will he most benefit-
led by its completion and hy the advent of a competing line.
Mr, Hill haa evidently made un tin
wise move, Hid he asked for a suhsidy
from holli the province and the Dominion and half of each of the townsites
which lie passed through he would nol
have been opposed ; on the contrary,
he would have h.id Ihe path of his
builders smoothed, instead of obstruct
ed, and he would have been welcomed
by public oval ions and brass hands,
It would appear from the obstruct ive
tactics that are being lined that, all the
talk and fuss whicli the people of the
Ketlle river valley made to the effect
thalt hey were apparently anxious to
tenure the benefits of railway competition, were mere pretenses and that
Ihey are satisfied to go on foiever paying the present exorbitant, transportation rat es to the C. P, H, They do nol
want cheaper rates for the haulage of
their coke, ore and supplies, and ap
patently, judging from their actions,
are anxious tn be left with only one
railway. If this is what they want no
effort should he made to help Ihem,
We helieve, however, if Mr. Hill
would pull up his survey stakes, infuse
to go on with his railway and leave
Ihem tn presentcouditlons, Ihey would
in a few days be sending delegal ions to
Sl. Paul to Interview him and petition
him to go on wilh his enterprise and
at the same time would promise that
lin more obstructive ladies would be
resorted to. There are many, however,
who helieve that the C, P, It. is at the
bottom of the obstruction and that
this company is behind the Hot Air
line, which Is partially responsible for
the delay which is now heing experienced in the forward operations of
the V. V. & E.—Nelson Miner.

Jlurder at Northport.
A despatch from Northport of last
Monday's date says :    Aliout three
o'clock today Ernest Lutz shot and
killed Thomas Kane and wounded John
Lacasse.  The difficulty occurred on
Onion creek, about eight miles south
west of Northport.   Ernest Lutz and
John Lacasse are neighboring ranchers,
their lands adjoining.   Thomas Kane
is a member of the Hrin of Kane Bros.,
who are running a sawmill on Onion
creek.   John Lacasse, Thomas Kane
and C. Kelly were engaged in survey
ing and staking the line mai king the
boundary between the ranches of Lacasse and Lutz.   While they were thus
engaged  Lutz appeared and ordered
them off his ground, claiming that
they were driving their stakes more
than 200 feet in on his property and
warned them that if they did not leave
he would kill them.   He then went lo
his house and came out with his rifle
