THE WAUCONDA
A Wauconda Camp Property that is
Coming into Prominence.
$30,000 EXPENDED UST YEAfi
Few Properties In any of t|ie New
Mining Camps Tributary to Midway have made such  Rapid
Strides in Development
During the past year.
Few properties in any of Ihe new
mining cmnps tributary to Midway
have made such lapid strides in development during the past year, as the
Wauror.da, situate on the Colville
reservation south of here. George L,
Hedges, general manager of the Wauconda Hold Mining Company, in speaking of the property says :
At the beginning of last year, sufficient development woik had heen
done on the Wiiuconda to justify more
extensive development than had
hitherto been undertaken. The large
cross tunnel driven with a view of eut-
tinfi Hve ledges had heen driven 252
feet. During the year 101)1 this was
extended a distance of 710 feet, or a
distance of 1028 feet from the portal to
the face. This tunnel is 5J hy 7 feel in
Lhe the clear, and is timbered throughout iu the most substantia! manner.
•"Three large ledges and several small
sides have been cut, hy the tunnel. The
tunnel is lieing pushed with a view of
cutting two others. The lirst ledge
wns cut at adepth of about tKX) feet below I he surface, and when the last one
is reached it will lie. something over
800 feet below the surface. The work
is bejpg prosecuted, with lliree isigljl
hour shifts and an average advance is
made of about five feet daily. I ef
pect I hat about, 3(i0 feet more will have
to lie driven to cut the last ledge.
"During l he'year 222 feet of drifts
were run on Uie ledges, and a smtir.n
cut fora raise. Since the beginning
of l he year 1002 tt,-o shifts have been
woiking on the raise. This will lie
extended to the surface.
In addition to work on the mine, a
mill wilh a daily capacity of 35 tons
has been erected and will he in full
operation as soon its the superintend'
of the mill, J. B. Bowman, returns
froni a visit in ihe east, which will
probably be wil hin 10 days. A machine shop has been erected and
equipped with the necessary machinery to repair any portion of the uiill
machinery that may require mending.
To supply the mill with water a dam
and Hume 800 feel long wete built,
"My hooks bIiow that I have expended for lalioi nnd supplies during
lhe year $30,000. This is exclusive of
the cost of the machinery iu tlio mill
and machine shop,
"I am employing 30 men, which will
be about the number employed until
the mill is in full operation, Willi
the opening of spring mining operations will lie conducted on a larger
scale, as it is the intention of thc compuny to increase the capacity of the
null lo 100 tons daily as quickly us
possible,
"The work done hy tho Wauconda
conipnny has been the incentive that
hns caused other companies updating
in the camp to push development,"
TO CALL STRIKE OFF.
Officers   of Rossland (liners Union
flake Overtures for Peace,
A despatch from Hassland dated
.Ian, 10states thai a deputation representing the trades and lahor council and the Hossland Miners' union interviewed tlie managers of the Ln Hoi,
the Le Roi No 2, the Kootenay, the
Rossland Great Western and tlie Cen
tie Star and the War Kagle mines today wilh a proposition to call olf lhe
strike,   -
The labor representation inserted
the proviso that all miuuninn men
must he discharged and on this condition thoy would return to work
and would withdraw the other demands set heretofore.
The negotiations were fruitless.
The mlno managers absolutely declined to discharge any men or tn treat
with Ihe union. They informed the
labor delegal Ion that men would be
hired when required In the usual way
on application to the proper parties,
and that there would he no discrimination against men solely because they
were iiulcntillcil with the union.
Tliis is the Itrsfapproach to a settlement fur several mouths.
MECHEM'S
SPECULATIONS
THE    PROMOTER    OF    MOLSON
MAKES A STAKE IN TEXAS
OIL LANDS.
A Report of how he Conducted his
Speculations Is Characteristic of
the Same Reckless Speculative
Spirit he Displayed In Booming his Reservation
Town.
The folio,ving excerpt Is laken from
a description of lhe oil fields of Beau
mnnt, Texas, published recently in a
special edition of the National Oil
Reporter, New York. It relates to
how George B. Meehem hotight two
acres of land for ten thousand dollars
and sold half of it for ten times linn
amount and still has one acre of land
in the famous oil country. Anyone
who is acquainted with Mr. Meecheni
knows that, the manner adopted in
making the transactions is character
tic of the mail. According to the re
port Mr. Meehem has displayed tlie
same reckless spcculaiive spirit, in his
oil transactions that he did throughout his comparatively short careei
while endeavoring to make Molson
ihe Chicago of the reservation,
"Most of the instances in which,fortunes were made suddenly after the
Lucas gusher came in represented
either sheer luck or coiiibinaiiotis of
circunistancea in which results were
achieved liy various light efforts on
the part of the beneficiaries. But occasionally, during these lirst feverish
days a man emerged from lhe crowd
whose methods carried the hill mark
of financial genius. George B. Meecli
em was one of these. Two days afiei
the Lucas ca my in Mr. Meehem was
..ti the giound. The people of Beau*,
moot were still dawd-hy the discovery.
They understood in a general way,
lhat a gieat fortune was to lie had foi
the grasping ; but most of thein were
not sure just bow to grasp ||, Tliosi
who were fortunate enough to hold
land on Spindle Top feared to put a
price on the properly | those who
•Minted land there did not yet dare lo
bid ihe prices whicli llio proximiiy to
gusher land  wnuld seem lo warrant.*
"Mr. Meehem drove from the Crosby
house, Beaumont, to .Spindle Top ; he
saw the Lucas, miked with everyone
who might know sotnelhltig about the
situation, then relurned. The next
morning he asked the owners of a
small tract on Spindle Top to make
him a price. Their answer was that
because of the changed conditions
tbey did not know .what their properly
was fairly worth. Mr. Meehem off r. d
$10,000 for two acres, Ten days liefore
land in the vicinity had been selling
for $5 and $10 an acre. The astonished
owners accepted the off.-r. This is
said to have been lhe first sale after oil
was found.
"In New Orleans next day Mr. Me.-
cIiimu had to assure a lacal banker that
he had nnt suddenly gone mad when
he asked $1(10,000 for one of his two
iirVes, Must to show you that my
judgment is good,' Mr, Meehem said,
'and lhat I have the nerve to back my
judgment, I'll let you put $100,000 in
ihe bank, take ihe acre, drill on it, ami
if hy 1,400 feet Vou've not a gu*her,
you draw down I lie money, if you have
one, I draw il down, I know that I've
stand up t lie situation at Beaumont,
I'm willing to sell my goods with a
guarantee."
"The bargain was concluded. In less
than OOdays the gusher was in and
Mr. Meehem had drawn down lhe$100,-
000, The banker and Iiis associates
had a gusher they would not sell for
ten limes that sum i the first operatoi
who risked his money oh the situation
created by Ihe Lucas showing had
$00,0(X) clear and an acre of land which,
in all human probability, will bring
him a fortune sullieient for the rest of
hisdays. Tills Is the story of the Hist
purchase nnd the first guarantee.
Lund sales and guarantees of gushers
are common enough now' lhat the Held
Is proven, But that first grand stroke
ol Mi'.Mechein's, made while(1)"' world
was still wondering, showed nn insight
into the future and a willing lo buck
that insight that, should be written
down when the history of tho Beaumont Held is told."

The alteration will affect the jiresent

Boundary trains will run through from

Trade With South Africa.
The Departmsiit nf Agiicultni
received a cable from the Im
war oflice, with rettilvd to the
povlatlon of Canadian goods lo
Africa, by the steamers whieh now
carry hav and other supplies to South
Africa, it is understood that Hon.
Mr. Fisher for some time has heen
negotiating with the Imperial will'
office to allow Canadian products and
goods lo be shipped lo Africa by these
supply ho.-iis, pending the fuller di vi-l-
opulent of a dii ect line of steamship
service.
There is a fine opening in Africa for
Canadian guilds, and it 1.. well known
thai if Canadian traders are e.ily on
the field at the close of the win , when
the country again settles down to I isi-
ness, they wdl easily secure (he laranr
portion of the trade in Africa, jh elsewhere in Britisli domains. There is a
strong feeling in favor of all ih-il in
Canadian, aud to rat eh this at full tide
is undoubtedly lhe intention of the
government, by forwarding Cu: uii in
goods to this market at the present
time the trade will become early established, and the developments in ihe
future will prove of untold yali.ie to
Canada, It Ip said thai Ilie War ofMca
has agreed tna shipment of goods by
these vessels, and the details air now
being arranged for keeping trade.

It is impossible to  ki-ep   some men
do.vu, no matter wiih whatsevioiisreverses they-uieet.   Just nt  iho  time
whei.it  is least, expecied they bob  up
serenely   ill   some,   new vein lire even
grenler than their   last one.   This  is
especially Hue of George B.   Meehem,
who luis ninth* a fortune in oil lands at,
Beaumont,'   Texas.    Fur    years Mr,
Meehem waited for the north   halt of
the Colville reservation to he thrown
open to while settlement,   He was of
the opinion that when this look   place
there would lie a givjit rush of settlel's
lo the lesei-vation for the  purpose  of
obtaining homesteads,   and with   the
rush, towns would be built aud fort lines
made.   It was witli a view to suiting
a new town that Mr. Meehem cu tu e to
the reservation'   He  formed a coin
pany and obtained lands just across
the International boundary line front
Sidley.   A town   was  started,  which
was called Molson, and   no  town for
many miles around showed such activity for a few months, hut this activity
was  being  caused entirely    on    the
money of Meclieni  aud his associates.
He spent money  with  a recklessness
that would indicate an  inexhaustible
treasury) building after building wns
built, all at  the company's  expense.
All classes of laborers found ready em
ployuieiit at. Molson and the town became a   veritable beehive.   Meehem
was a welcome visitor lo any   of the
towns in the district, as he was noted
for the easy manner ill   which money
passed through his hands, and during
the    period of   depression     through
which the other towns    were passing
at the time, a man of MicIiciii's char
acter rfi used quite aflutter.  But Mech
elil overestimated the extent,  of good
anils on the  pint of the reservation
when-be started his town,  there wns
nol nearly as  in uch  its  he  thought,
consequently there was  not the rush
be anticipated and with his own  money spent anil no busine-s   to   keep   up
the   town,  it  went Hat even   more
quickly than it had come into  prowl
nenee.   The town was  placed  in the
hands uf a receiver.   However a sliuri
lime before the lo'Vtl retched ils   lowest ebb, Meehem disappeared from the
scene nnl  nnly  his  must    intimate
friends, if auy, knew  where he went.
Nothing definite was heaid of liim until recently, although there weiemany
conflicting, reports of his movements
advanced hy  the  many know it-nils,
who as usual weie astray in their suppositions.    Word   now   comes   from
New York that Meehem has made a
fortune   through   specula!tug iu   oil
lands.   The iiinu who wns down in the
World has,  by his ambition,  acquired
sufficient wealth tu put hint on easy
street,   It is  as  impossible  lo  keep
some men down in the world ns it is to
keep a cork under water, which, when
disturbed or an attempt made to press
it down, jumps up higher than ever,
iinmediaiely it is given the  least   possihle chance.    No douht if wealth   had
not heen obtained through his oil speculations, Mei-hem would have  cnnlin-

We are in receipt of a copy of the
sixth report of the Depart ment of
Agriculture, issued by ,1, ll. Anderson,
Deputy Minister of Agriculture. It.
contains much carefully compiled information regarding the different sections of tlie province. It also contains
many photographic views of farming,
slock raising and lumbering scenes.
The report is certainly valuable lo
those engaged in any of the various
branches of agricultuie, which il
touches upon, Itis nlso none the less
valuable ton number of people, who
nre not. residents of the province, but
living elsewhere uml are contemplating a change in their residence. It
furnishes them with reliable Information and data that will materially
.assist tbem in deciding as to whether
British Columbia offers advantages
peculiar to (heir different requirements, and as this information is not
simply of the province ns a whole, hut
deals wilh ench of the sections separately, it is an easy matter for those
desirous nf coming to British Coluni.
hia to decide upon whicli particular
part, is especially adapted to the
branch they may wish to engage in,
and therefore is a great saving to them
in gaiping the information through
t lie report that could only be obtained
otherwise nt considerable expense.
The value of such a report, to Ihe province, can scarcely In- estimated, it acts
as au immigration agent that is certain to meet with excellent results.
The fact, thnt no report has been issued
since 18!)5-D0 is lo be deplored, ns is also
that the piesent one does not contain
such full information as might be obtained. Not enough attention has
been devilled iu th'1 past tp this department. Mr. Anderson is a man
well adopted l.o bis posilion and has,
under the circumstances, done excep
tionally well in his department. He
lias taken treat pallia in obtaining information relative lo the different dis
tricts, but he has not received the
assistance in the carrying out of his
good work 'hat he should. British
Columbia has advanced to. the stage
tbat il demands more attention being
pnid trr its agricultural resources. It
is to be hoped that, in future, not a
Year may go by without a report he
ing issued, nnd th.it each succeeding
report may be up to dale in the statistics, the absence of which are so
noticeable in the report for HXX). Thc
Deputy Minister in submitting his report states that,expeiuiinentalstations
in different parts of the province are
constantly urged upon the attention
of the department, as the one at
Agassi-/, only answers fnr one part of
the province, which owing to ils lopog-
1,-ipby presents such a variety of climate and conditions and suggests ll.iil a
siioillexperimi-iital station situated in
the immediate neighborhood of Victoria, he stalled, so as to be under the
Immediate supervision of lhe officers
of this depal-lment. No doubt a station is reqiireil at Victoria, but it is
doubtful if it is needed auy more than
one in the Okanagan or Kettle itiver
valley. Tlie results of experiments
made itieitberof the Valleys mentioned
would prove useful to the whole of
southern Briiish Columbia, whereas
ihe results obtained at the Qoast
would be of as little use to Ibis portion of British Columbia as those obtained at Agiissiz, so the depart ment
should benrIn mind that if II.decides
to locale a station at Victoria,
that Southern British Colunihia should
be given a similar Institution. No
doubt the little attention given in tlte
report to Ibe photographic views of
the Ketlle Hiver valley is largely due
to the Utile inlerest displayed by the
ranchers of this highly I'avoied part of
Ihe province, iu bringing the counlry
into prominence, and, therefore, is
probably not the fault of the department. However it. is tu le- hoped thai
when the next report is issued the
Ketlle river valley will figure more
conspicuously holli in iiiformntion and
views of the dislrict, whicli can only
he brought aboil', by the united efforts
of the ranchers of tbe valley and the
Agricultural Department, Let our
Kettle river valley ranchers fake an
interest in bringing the agricultural
resources of this portion of the province into prominence and there is little
doubt hut that they will he given
every assistance from the depart uieiil.
Ranching is a noble oiciipalion and
those engaged in tl should see lhat.
when the next report of the Minister
of Agricultuie is issued Unit iheir districl is well represented both by Infor-
ma1 ion nnd photographic views of lhe
different brunches of the industry.
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, it is an
investment.
