ster, The secretary reported that.Sir
Henri July had cnnsenied to become
patron to the society, and that the
Hon, James Dimsnuiir had given very
generous assistance to the Association.
The Provincial Government had also
paid over the sum nf SMlil passed iy
lhe Legislature for ihe purpose of extending the work of the society in the
various districts of the Province. Mrs,
(Dr.) Wnlkem, of Nanaimo, gave a
must interesting account of the work
done by the society which was inaugurated by the secretary in that city
last month and staled that a large
membership wnuld' follow. Arrangements were also made for the secretary
tn visil Ladners, Chilliwack and other
centres with a view of starting branch

the same a.s in summer, bul newspapers, parcels uinl packages, to tbe extent of only 600 pounds per week, will
be allowed lo pass iu from Skagway.
Everything considered, few complaints
have been made during the BUmnier,oC
.season of navigation, in relation to the
manner in which the mail service in
the north was carried out, It Is to he
hoped thai the post office department
wiil change the i'liil) pound limit tu at
least 1,000 pounds, The sum paid for
the service is considerable, and the
people in the north, as they are very
heavy contributors to the Federal
treasury, should he placed upon the
same footing us citizens in oilier sections nf the country. If the limit nug.
gesled is granted, it, is almost certain
that I here will he little or no cause fnr
complaint.

MONDAY. OCTOBER 15, IHOO.
Great interest is being taken in tha
opening of the Colville Indian reservation, to tha 6outh of Midway. The
principal places in the neighborhood
are Molson, Chesaw and Bolnter, whioh
are within a few milea of the boundary
line, and they arc mosl easily reached
by tho Canadian Pacific railway's new
Boundary creek extension to Midway,
the distance from this point being only
ll) miies, tn Bolster, 2x1. In Chesaw,
and 28J tn Molson by a gond wagon
rond. In the past difficulty has been
experienced in gelling shipments of
freight, to those towns, owing to the
lack of customs facilities, but this will
now be completely overcome as the
Polled states government has just
assigned a customs officer to Midway
to facilitate the tiansferof American
freight tu these points,
There seems lo be gieal complication in matters regarding the building
of the wagon road from Westbridge
to Beaverton, Last, week an order
was phoned tn the Gl een wood Miner
frnm Ruck Cieek, fur a number of
posters advertising for 200 men, and
whoever sent the message claimed
that Mr, Thruston, manager of the
Carmi, bad ordered the message sent.
The posters were duly printed and
freely distributed throughout the district, and as a result a large number nf
men went tothe West, Fork to receive
employment, but upon their arrival
they were informed thai no mine men
were wanted. There was already a
gang of about 25 men at woik and
even thai small number were without
the necessary tools to work with,
so that Mr, Shaw, the surveyor,
was justified in not giving employment to a further number until such times as the necessary tools
arrived to supply tbe small gang already at work. Mr. Thruston now
claims that he never phoned the order
for the posters nor did he instruct
anyone lo do so and be has now hud a
dumber of posters sent out to ihis
affect. If Mr, Thruston were responsible for advertising for men he was
entirely tno previous, but on the other
hand if be were not aware that his
name was lieing used for the purpose
someone is guilty of a serious charge
and will, in all probability, be brought
to justice and have to suffer the penalty provided for such conduct. The
men who went to the West Fork expecting to receive work, intend to
take steps to recover damages for their
time and expenses incurred in travel
ling to Westbridge, so thnt it will be
rather interesting to see iiow the
matter is settled.

%««S€«SWi«m«S6««6"6«***sifc
A single car was being loaded with
ore from the Buckhorn, in Deadwood
camp, last week. This will be the
becond car shipped from this property,
which is now employing a few men,
chiefly near the surface,
The Golden Crown and Winnipeg
minen, In Wellington camp, have reduced their working forces and suspended shipping ore for the time being. It is understood that in the
former an entirely new plan of development is shortly to be adopted.
The Standard Pyritie Smelling Co.
is pushing on its const run ion wnrk at
the site of its smelter above Midway,
The excavations were last week for
ward enough to allow of masons being
put on and now these latter are mak
ing good progress. The plant has lieei
shipped from Denver, Col., bo it may
be expected to be on the ground with
iu a week or two, Mr. Laidlaw, th
managing director,!* making the most
of the present line weather to hasten
construction.
It is definitely stated that the Old
Ironsides and Knob Hill mines' shipments of ore to the (iranhv smelter at
Grand Forks will be doubled on Wednesday next. The second furnace was
blown in at the smeller on Saturday,
tbe difficulty in ohlainingasufflelently
large supply of cuke before blowing it
In having been tbe main cause of delay
induing so. There is at the smelter a
good supply of ore on hand ahead of
Immediate requirements, so that with
the above-mentioned shipments,wWoh
will average OOO tons per day, and
sundry receipts from smaller mines
that will also be going in right along,
the Bint'lter will have more than
enough ore to keep it going.
The SuowbIioo, at Phoenix, will before the end of thu year send out ahoul
200 tons of ore for further test put poses.
This will be taken from the work
ings on what is known as the railway
ledge, which is opening up very well,
showing ore about 50 feel in width and
occurring along the greater part of
the length of thn tunnel, now in inoi
than 800 feet. A small steam hoist
was lately placed in this tunnel for
nae in sinking a winze. The Snow
shoe should next year be a regular
shipper in considerable quantity, es
penally as it i.s owned by English capi.
talis!•■ who can easily provide ample
money to udequately equip anil
■Mtteusively wurk il.
U|i iu the workings;.! the IKKI-tool level
of the Mot her Lode mine. The north
drift and two cross cnl.. frnui it have
all disclosed ihe presence of o lot of
good oro and the raise now being
made from ihis level lo the 200 is in
some of the best oro yet met with 111
the mine. The work of sinking the
main shaft, now down 325 feet, will
shortly be resumed anu will thereafter be conl inued to tho 600 foot level.
Mine buildings for the accomodation of
more men and new and larger machinery, are being hurried to completion whilst the weal her is favorable
for this work. Tbe two 100 horse
power boilers for the new compressor
have heen built in and housed and the
two 81) horse power boilers for the
new hoist will soon he similarly ready
for use. The compressor and hoist
should he received before the end of
the current month and it should not
take long to instal tbem. with so much
of the preliminary work already done.
The blowers for tho B. C. Copper
Co's, smelter, at Anaconda, which
arrived a fortnight ago, are being removed on skids from the railway track
to the blower house where they will
be placed in position. The pipe for
the pipe line, from the dam recently
constructed on ('upper Oieek to the
works, arrived from New York last
week and the wurk of fixing it and
boxing il in to protect i*. from frost
will now be proceeded with. The
lahoratory is now in readiness for
work, the coke floor ami olher parts
of the smelter yard are heing put in
shape for the receipt of coke and
Muxes, should any of the latter bu
needed, wliieh it hardly likely, hearing
in mind the slated experience in
smelting ores at the Granhy smeller,
and mailers are having attention in
the sampling mill the machinery for
whicli should come to hand very
soon. Ore is being 6ent from the
Mother Lode mine to the smelter so as
to accumulate a supply before the
work of reduction shall he started.
There dues not appear to be much
probability that a commencement will
he made wiih the actual work of
smelting before the beginning of next
year, although the smelter manager is
eported to have staled that he ex
pects to be ready for t his work by
December 1st.
