Engineer C. Ai. Shaw's Report to tbe
Chief Commissioner of Lands
and  Works,
As considerable interest hns lieen
taken In the building nf the waggon
road up tint West Fin It, the report of
0. M. Shaw, engineer in chiit-ge, lo
■(.lie provincial gtivrrtiiin-nt, may prove
of Interest tu a number of our renders.
It is as follows :
j Sir,—I have the honor to teport
that mi I'eeelpl of your instt-iu-iions,
coaled 25th of August, to survey the
t-ii'id frntn Westhrhlge lo Beaverton
tip the West Fork of Kettle river valley, I organised a survey party and nn
tile 1 fit li of September coniiui-iieed
•yprk nt lhe end of the waggon rond,
whi.li wns iibtiul 2A mile* north of
Went bridge. Tnwaid-i the end of the
month I received -i telegram from the
Bon. Mr. Wells, authorising uie logo
to Greenwood and at range n eonlraet.
with Mr. Thrusion for the construe-
linu of the load for $8,000. Mr. Thl'us-
ton di-elined to lnke the uonir.ui a1
that amount, sitting that it woiilj
cost nl least twine a-, miii-li to Imiltl the
t-end.
1 found that you would be in Oreen-
woi-d ou the night of the 251 h, so remained, and on the20ih went to West-
bridge mid on to the t-iirvej eamp,
about 11 miles up the Wesl. Fnrk, with
you. Thi-27lh wasspenl in going over
the proposed road, and you aitthot-ist-d
Die In change the survey from lhe
stinting point m as in cross the river
ahuui half a mile from the end of the
load, aud then cross Inn k again nta
point ahoul fnur miles fun her on and
ihere join the Hrsl survey, which followed ihe north bunk of the i-ivi r.
Ahout''the Hrst week in Otiober n
laige nunilier uf men eiiuie to rniup in
le-ponse io uu udveriiseiuent nt Mr.
Tbriiston's calling for men t.. woik on
ihe waggon rond. As many of them
wen- entirely destitute and hnd in
many cases patkid their blankets in
long di-lnueeK aud lure delern.iiietl lo

On tbe 17. h O.-i ober, when at station

striifiion-i fnun you lo commence con

ly done, and as sunn as"the Uni1.*', sup
plies and tents could ''e em rl-A log-th-
er ihe men wercliiiii off. I found it
neeessaiy to lenitive everything lo
Midway, as there wns no place oh lhe
West Foik in which the government
pioperty could be su red without the
certainty of iis In ing stolen. As it
wns, and in spite of nil piein.iiitins, a
quantity of tools, supplies, eie,, were
stolen.

From station 238x55 lo station"352
Ihe grading of lhe the road, which for
nearly the whole distance is side hill
work, wilh considerable rock in places,
is completed. At station 320 x 55, nn
almost perpendicular rock bluff had to been d
be cut through for a distance uf 100
feet, the cut Mug 35 feel deep on lhe
| inner side, At station 331 x 00 Is a
piece of cribwork around thc head of
a gulch 210 feet long, 20 feet wide and
averaging eight feet high ; and al. Ihe
north end of the cribwork is considerable rock cutting. From stf.lion 352 tn
383 very little work in the way of
grading has been done ; there will be a
litlle rock work in Ihis distance, mostly shallow cut; and at station 300 x 07
bridge 110 feet long and 37 feet high,
over Hay Oreek, will he required ; Ihe
squared limber for Ihis hridge is all
made nnd hauled, the foundation for
the pier built and rock excavated for
placing the abutments, I understand
the Carmi Company have since completed this bridge.
From staiion 283 to station 454 Ihe
work, which for practically the whole
distance is heavy (ride-hill cutting, is
completed and the timber prepaied for
l wo bridges, each 30 feet long ; one
over Bull Creek al station 431 x 97, and
lite other over a dry water-course,
The survey of "the road was also
carried oli to station 738, crossing the
river again to the south side at station
500 x 47, where a bridge 90 feet long
will he required.
The balance of Hie work from the
end of the present grnde to Beaverton
will le light—mosl ly bench lands and
long sl retches of river Huts with very
little nick or cribwork.
The supplies on hand at the lime the
work was stopped, to the amount of
something over $500, were sold tothe
Oartni Company, who also secured a
loan of some of the tents, tools, etc..
to he u-fd in completing a sleigh road
to the Canni mine, tu set/Mi-ity for
which lhe manager placed a certified
cheque for $000, subject lo my order,
in the Bank of .Montreal here. On his
return shortly the mailer will be
finally settled mid the amount due for
ihe supplies will be paid in lo Mr.
MoMjnn.
I have handed a list of took', camp
outfit, etc., sloied at Midway, also a
list of those loaned to the Canni Com
pany, and of the supplies purchast-d
by Ihem, to Mr. Kirkup, who will for-
wind them to you.
By careful location I have succeeded
in keeping the grades of the l-OHd
down, though the porlioii built covers
practically all the heavy work. The
grades going uoith will not in anyplace exceed seven per cent j and coming south, in what is expected to be
the direction of the heaviest traffic,
tliey will not exceed four and a half
percent.     ■

WILL CANADA WIN ?
The Most Remarkable Contest In the
History of Han.
Owing lo the success of the lecenl
expedition's in 'search of the North
Pole nil nations ate alert, ln all parts
of the world scientists have arisen to
th*' emergency, and now with victory
iii sight it will be a struggle to the
death lo plant the ting at the earth'-'
axis. No less than seven expedilions
aie being lined out and will sail from
ns ninny pons. Prnctienlly Unlimited
means have been placed at the dispos il
of the explorers iu other lands. Russia has placed unlimited means at the
disposal of Adinirnl Markarnff, Wi
limn Zeigler, a millionaire of New
York, is willing to spend one million
(ive hiindriil thousand dollars to enable Evelyn B. Baldwin to plant Ihe
stiirs nnd stripes' al tht polo. The
Duke nf AlilllMi, who spent five hundred thousand dollars on his Hrst expe
ditiiin, is prepaied to spend twice as
much If necessary to accomplish his
purpose.
Undoubtedly Ihe grenl est factor iu
the world's race for the pole is the ex-
nrditioti of Captain .1. E. Bernier, of
Quebec, a Canadian by birth, who has
ulVt-reil his sen-ices to his King and
Canada gratuitously. The Onptnin's
plans are unquestionably the best that
have been conceived. They have heen
endorsed nnd unproved by the Geographical Suciety uf Quebec, the Colonial Institute of London, England,

Anyone giving information that will
lead In the immediate recovery of the
above will save a lot of disputes over
u nernl claims situate along the long
I it International boundary line,
Elsewhere in this issue we publish
Ihe report of the engineer iu charge
of construction of the West Fork
wagon roud, to the Chief Commissioner
nf Lands and Works. The report
shoulil prove nf interesl us it explains
how the peoph s' good money has been
ruthlessly squandered. It wnuld ap
pear from the report thai a great
amount uf the money that shnuld
huve been expended in wages, went t.i
feed the men who had Hocked into
that country from the outside because
they beard that the government was
running a free lunch counter. There
was nn need of getting men from the
outside to help build the'road. There
were plenty up the West Folk ut
thut time tn build it. They would
have worked with the object
in view of finishing the rond nnd nut
lo see how little work it was possible
to do for a dollar, hut instead nf encouraging the men who helped to
open up the country by allowing them
to pel form lite work on the mad, the
"hiiugries" lhat. came along were hired
with the result that lhe toad was
never completed, nnd as no appropriation fortius road appears among Ihe
tali mutes it would seem thutlrrllic io
nnd froni the West Fork country is
to coin inu.' in the old way, namely, hy
trail.
Sir Wilfred Laurier bus unnoiincetl
that the 21th May—Victoria Day
will l-e madeu permanent statutory
holiday for till Canada, tin. Doniinion
(iovfi'iiiiientaihiptingthe necessary enabling bill inlrtiduci.il inltilheHuiise of
Commons hy Mr. Horsey, M,P., as a
government measure, untl thus
securing ils prompt passage into law.
The decision will piohahly be unanimously approved by both Chambers,
uieeting ns it undoubtedly will tlii-
views of the people of Canada. During
the reign of Queen Victoria the great
tun innal union ol provinces and territories of tbeconlinentot Briiish North
America, uf which uillnii, all of lis
loyal Canadians nre citizens, wns accomplished, This alone would he sufficient to justify the perpetuation of so
well established a national holiday,
hut apart from this and for the fact
that Queen Victoria was the best nnd
greatest Queen whn ever ruled, we
should as a ual inn of the empire, commemorate her birthday. Another
reason of minor importance hut which
should nnt he Inst sight of is that om
King's Lii-ihduy, occurring us it does
in lhe bleak tnnnth of Novembeivwhen
the weather in Canada is unsuitable
foe holidaying out-of-door spoils,
makes it impossible to utlvuutageoiisly
set apart his birthday us u suitable
national hollday.ulthough doubtless hefore thut date comes around there will
he some national means of atlesting.in
snine appropriate form, the warmth
of our loyalty to him, who is now our
worthy ruler.

Mr. .luttYay touched on a furlher
important development wh ich is
promised to Briiish Columbia. Mr.
James.I. Hill stated to him, he said,
that he had already begun operations
with a view of connecting Republic
tamp with bis system, and with Grand
Forks und Midway in Briiish Columbia, The ores of llm Republic and olher
camps tn the south will make an excellent smelting combination with the
oies of the Boundary country, as wi b
as with the "wel" ones of St. Kiigeue,
tho Slouuui, Ihe North Star, the Sullivan mines, nnd others. Thus lhe
progress of developini lit promises to
hi-nelil British Colunihia by attracting tn smelting industries un Us soil
tin- ore of American mining camps.
ln response lo a question Mr. J.ilfcny
observed that he found public feeling
iu British Coliiniliia very slionglv, one
might almost suy unanimously, in fit Vr
or of Ihe open door foi railways, The
general feeling wns thut the time bus
cuine when nunc railway facililiesniiist
lie grunted to insure the development
nf the vast mineral wealth uf the Province, Immense bodies of ores exist,
hut the gieal hulk of these lire low
guide, und they will require lbe most
economical mid skilful treatment to
produce satisfactory lesults, Cheap
freight, and the I,est of railway accom-
inudulion are considered by British
Columbia mine owners lo be essential,
and, whether correct or not, ihey helieve ihut these aie only lobe obtained
hy competition. The geogiaphicul
conditions of Brit ish Columhiaare such
lhat nothing hut. railway facilities can
give the opporl unity for proper development. Everyone inl crested in mining aud in the pi ogress nf Briiish Col
uinl.in must feel thai ii is nf the greatest importance that everything thai is
required I.y the miners should teach
tlicui al. the lowest possible cost.
So fm us general development is concerned, Mr. Jaffray expressed ihe opinion that British Cnluuibiu is getting
froni speculation to working propositions, The public ure coming to real
iin tliul a mine is not. opened in a day,
lhat mining cannot he carried nn with
out knowledge und capital. Tbey also
are beginning tu reulize thut mining is
nut carried on in a broker's office. As
is usual in this transition singe, there
is some impatience manifested on the
part of the sel of iutetests whicli have
grown up as auxiliary services to the
mining interests,
CONVICT  RE-CAPTCRED.
Cameron,  the Escaped Convict, of
Columbia Arson Fame, Re-Arrested at Pitt River.
Hobi rt Cameron, uf Columbia, who
was serving a six year sentence at
New Westminster penitentiary for incendiarism, und wtm escaped from custody last Tuesday morning, was rear*

Cameron was working witb the regular gang iu a Held in the lenrof lhe

Cameron was convicted ahout, two
years ago of incendiarism ami sentenced ts six yenrs in tin- penitentiary,
His crime wns the setting un fire of
an hotel iu Ooiumbia. The towns of
(irand Forks antl Columbia were rivals
at that time. The citizens of one town
had no use fur the residents of Ihe
other. A line hutel was built in Columbia, one of the finest, in that locali
ly, The big hotel did not list long.
One night the place caught fire, and in
a few biiiirs was nothing hut a pile nf
ushes. Fur putting tin- match to thi
hotel Oameron gol six years,
Tho citizens of Ooiumbia claimed
that lhe entire thing was u conspiracy
uniting u number nf people of their
rival tmt n, nnd thut Cameron wus

GREENWOOD MAKES A WIN*INI
There is now no doubt that one
and probably two railways will be
building out of Midway as soon as
spring opens, and Midway is destined
to become the commercial and railway
centre of the Boundary country.
Now is the time to buy lots in the
town. They will make you rich. It is
aot a speculation, it is an investment.
