Vety little has heen henrxl nf late
uliniit the Highland Queen Consolidated Mining and Milling Company's
properties, Imt tbe oompany ban been
steadily going abead and developing
tbeir claims with very Bittlsfaotory results. Every dollar that hns lieen
spent Ium made a good showing. Thr
work has beeu curried on under good
management, and the properties never
looked lietter lhan they do at tin- present time,
Tin- Highland Queen Consolidated
Mining ami Milling Company, Limited,
was incorporated in Spokane, Wash ,
in January, 181*7, and was registered in
British Columbia, as a foreign company, in May of the same year. Its
head office iu British Oolumhla is al
Midway, The company owns the
Highland Queen, Big Windy and
Snowdrop claims.
THE HIGHLAND Ql.'EKN.
Thi' Highland Queen is situated near
Anaconda. It was located on the ir,th
day of April, 181)5. Developnienl work
consists of a shaft, 5x7, H4 feet deep,
showing a well defined quartz vein two
feet wide, well mineralized with iron,
galena and zinc hleude, assays from
which gave 200 ounces in silver and
$10 in gold per ton. Tbe ledge crops
out on thtt surface a distance nf HUH
feet and Is fnun 1(1 to 18 inches wilt'.
Tlie sirike of thf ledge is northerly
and southerly and it dips to Hit' east al
an angle of 20 degrees. A large iron
cap wjis discovered on ihe property
about -i*1 feel east of the main shaft.
and a shaft was sunk on it, showing it
large hody of iron sulphide, with Btilue
copper, When work was suspended a
shurl time ago some beautiful ore had
hi-i'ti struck. Ihe claim bas hi en surveyed and a crown grant applied for.
THK 111(1 WINDY
was located on the Hist of March, 1805.
li is situated in Providence camp, on
j Eholt creek. Development work consists of a shaft. 5x7, -Kl feet deep, al
which depth a well defined qunitz vein
i luee feet wide, whieh was well mineralized with copper and iron, and assaying $12 in gold and frnm 8 io 1(1 oz.
in silver and H per eent oopper per ton,
waa encountered. Muchsurface work
h.is also been done. The strike of the
vein is east and west and it dips lo the
ninth at an angle of 25 degrees, It is
an ideal location for the shipment of
ore as the Columbia & Western runs
through the centre tif the property
and within 20(1 feet of lhe shaft. I'
lias been surveyed and a crown giant
applied for.
THE HNOWIHKIP
is situated in Douglas' oamp, about
three miles east of Midway and near
ihe International Bouudary line. It
j was loeated on thu 26th day of Maroh.
181)7. The International, a properly
with a good showing, joins it on the
east. Development work consists of a
tunnel 12 feet in length, the face of
which shows a strong ledge ot blue
quartz carrying copper, galena and
Iron and assaying $1(1. No great depth
was attained hy this tunnel, so that
Ihe assay was almost a surface one
and the ledge tlmt was encountered
wits mil lhe main one. hul it is expect
i'ii thnt hy  itinulng ihe tunnel another 41) feel lhe main ledge will lie
tupped, and as the hill is inure precipitous for Hie next forty feel Hum whew
the tunnel hns already lieen run a
greater deplh will he attained, and it
is altogether likely that hetter assays
uill he obtained, for it has heen found
thai on nearly all the properties in the
vicinity ot the .Snowdrop the values of
Ihe oie hnve Increased very rapidly
the farther they went down on them.
Although enough woik has heen done
on lbe Snowdrop to entitle it to be
crown granted, the company inlendsto
resume work this fall, and eX| t Hint
hy the time ihe Standard OupperCom*
pany's smeller is in operation it will lie
iu a position to ship, aud Ihis is wliere
the Snowdrop will have a great advantage, Situate as it is there is a good
wagon road from the smelter site al'
most to the pioperty, and as the rock
is of such a nature as lo be easily
worked, the cost of mining nnd hauling the ore to the smelter will lie so
comparatively small Hint it will give a
better return after payingall expenses,
than many high grade properties wliieh
me expensive to work and Inconveniently situated for the transportation
of its ores.
THE WINMI'KH.
A winze is being sunk on Hi" first
vein in lhe crosscut north fiom the
shaft at the 800-fonl level of lhe Win-
nipeg mine, Wnltingnm camp, Although hut litlle depth hns yel. lieen
gained in the winze, the vein has al-
i ready widened frnm two tu four feel
of good looking ore. A carload is heing shipped lo Trail lo ascertain ils
value. The railway ledge now .shows
six feet of shipping ore, a crosscut
under tbe old US-foul level, from which
ore was taken out some time ago and
ihe stupe (Hied wilh wasle, having run
into this nice ore Imdy. The last returns received from ilu- sun Iter were
from a 20-ton car, whieh neited $1175
after payment nf freighl and treatment
charges. There has heen a decided
Improvement in ihe condition and
prospects of this mine since Superintendent N. Ttegeai assumed charge of
it.
THE BNOWBHOK,
What is known as ihe railroad tunnel of lhe Snow-hoe mine, in (liven-
wood camp, is now in nearly IKK) feel,
the greater pail of this distance in ore.
A crosscut now lieing driven from this
tunnel is in Ml feel and is not yet
ihrough the ore body. The 71)horse
power hoiler recently received has heen
built in and will shortly lie ready for
use. Oilier new plant lately received
at the mine includes a 12 Inch hv 1(1 feet
air receiver, two llj Little Giant drills
and a 11x2x11 Snow boiler feed pump.
THE OLD IHONHIDEH.
The shipment of ihe Old Ironsides,
Victoria and Kiioli Hill, to ihe Granhy
smell ri. Grand Porks, in date number
ahoul 11KI fins, approximately uiKK)
tons. Al present 11(1 men are employed,
The new shnfl house al the No. 1
shaft of the Old Ironsides, which is 28
feel hy 80 ft el, is ahout completed and
anew hoisting engine is now lieing
placed at this shaft to replace the old
one, which will be taken helow ground
for use there.
A new huilding will shorlly he
erected for lhe hoist al the mouth of
No. 2 shafl, on boundary line lietween
Old Ironsides and Victoria. Tin- hig
hoist at this shafl is nol ou a sufficiently solid formation, su it will he
removed and placed on rock foundation.
Two80*b.p, hollers are heing bricked
in al Ilie Kiioli Hill and a new 0x12
hoist is lieing installed, There is not
much new developnienl wink heing
done at present on these properties,
hut ore is heing stuped in the Ktinh
Hill and Victoria,
A diamond drill is now heing used in
prospecting on ihe Banner claim adjoining the Old Ironsides nn lhe west.
THE MiiTUI'lt LODE,
Tbe foundations for the 35-drill compressor and two KKI-horse power hollers
have been linislicd at the Mother Lode,
and a new dining hall is nearly completed. A I rum way has lately been
constructed from the month of the
main shaft to the ore hins, which are
being tilled Willi ore from lhe dump
near hy. 	
The north drift at the IKK) foot level
is now iu aboui IKI feet. Oie hns heen
cut in two crosscuts, one at DOfeet trom
the shaft and the other al IBO feet.
Tbe ore hody is ahoul 20 feel witle in
the former, hut the other is not yet
through it. The soul h drift is in about
140 feet. Theie are two crosscut* fi tun
this drift and the rock iu the faces is
becoming mineralized.
THE WAR KAII1.K.
In the summer of 1801 there were
made, in a pari of the Boundary Creek
district since known as (Ireenwood
cninp, live local ions, embracing mineral claims all of which to-day give promise of becoming permanent mines.
There may hnve lieen nther locations
made ahoul lhe same time, hul il is of
these live neighboring claims that
mention is here lieing made, and of one
of tbem in particular—the War Eagle
—that il is Intended now In give fuller
Information, The locations of the Old
Ironsides and the Knob Hill were both
recorded on .Inlv 26th, 181)1, at Camp
McKinney, thnt heing lhe nearest recording office. Tbe former was located hy M. Hatter, since deceased, and
Ihe hitler liy Henry White, nine days
later, on August Hid. Thc location of
lbe  Sleiiiwindei   hy   Dallies Alwood,
now a residenl of ihis place,and James
Seholli'ld, who returned to Kngland in
1808, was recorded,  On  August 4ih
the Brooklyn wns recorded, Sieve
Mangott, now of fairvlew, mid Joseph
M, Taylor, still resident within four or
five miles of Iliis elaini, lieing th'. locators, The War Eagle wus located liy
Robert Detrzler ami VV, A Douglas,
and wns recorded mi August 20ih. The
former is now in Spokane, Wash,
Mnelrhas heen published of th" Old
Ironsides, Knoli Ilill. Stemwinder and
Brooklyn from time lo time, hul not.
ncuily so much prominence has yet
been given lo lhe War Eagle, The
reason is fl very simple one-the four
flrst named properties were acquired
hy Eastern capitalists before tbe War
Eagle was nnd iheir systematic development was entered upon much earlier.
All live cliiinis, however, have one
thing in common, viz.. Ihey were all
located under an earlier Mineral Act,
which gave litem extra lateral liglrs
(that is the right to follow their ore on
its tlip even shoulil il continue into llll
adjoining claim) nnd Ihey nre all now
cull rolled hy Eastern Canadian coin*
punies.
Any one familiar with the h'll nr
mountain upon whieh .tie situ-it-,! the
Old Ironsides, Knoh Ilill, Y'nloiin,
Grey Eagle, War Eagle, Tamarac,
Monarch, Oold Drop, Snowshoe ami
adjacent claims will agree with lho
slad-uient Hint the numerous mineral
outcroppings, taken in relation io underground developments on several of
lhe group, mark ihis parlluulai section
of (ireenwood camp as giving extraordinary promise of mineral wealth.
The War Eagle has an altitude of
5,070 feel ahove si-it level, ll is situ l-
ed in thickly limiii-red country and so
possesses the advantage of hiving a
home supply of min-■ limher and fu I.
ll bas, too, a fair water supply for
mine purposes, On ihe olalm occur
three oui crops of mineral, hutsitffioicnt
work lins not yet lieen done tn determine their connection, if any, with one
another, It mattei-s Inle though
whether these are the outcrops of separate veins or nl ne hig ie.ul split up
near the surface ; whether they are
extensions of tbe big ore hotly already
followed from the Kn di Bill in'n ihe
Grey lvigle and helleved hy some in
continue theme into the War Hugh'.
or are quite dlst'nct fnun ihnt deposit.
There is this one simple Inil important
fact standing out, ihat where prospi cling helow ground copper-gold ore of
good quality has heen found to underlie the min 'iai outcrops, so thai developments to date encourage the belief
that with deplh the War Eagle will
give a gond account of itself and be a
valuable mining property on its u ■•- ii
merits and so wi'l be quite independent
of the reflected seeming importance so
often attached to :t olalm that is considered to he well situated or In simply

The way lo increase  the price of

lt takes 80 armed men to hold down
a mineral claim in Canua, Sonora. In
British Coliiniliia three posts answer
the purpose.
Oom Paul Kruger, in the way he
urges the Boers lo keep on fighting,
reminds ono of Arteinus Ward, who
wanted the civil war in the U. S. tn go
on if it COlt the lives of lhe last of bis
wife's relations..
Caste is a wonderfully bandy thing
for those who do not waul lo work.
In Canada the employe- is as highly
thought of as his or her employer so
long as ihe work is properly performed. Take no slock In people who refuse to work at this or that for fear
they will lose social caste.
According to population, Canada is
the hest served of lbe countries of tbe
world regaidiug railways, having !i,2H)
miles of railway per million of inhabitants, and the United States coming
next, with 2,045 miles ; the Argentine
Republic has 2,080 miles ; Sweden 1,217
miles, whilst Great Britain has 531
miles. The disproportion hetween
diffeicnt countries in respect to Ibe
ratio of mileage is impressive. Thus,
assuming Great Britain, with 5HI miles
of road to each inillinn of iuhahitaiils,
as  the  standard  for a well  peopled
country, then the United States, with
» population In 1808 of, say, 70,000,000,
would be entitled to only 37,300 miles
of railway, or one-Hfth of the actual
mileage. On the other hand, Briiish
India, instead of only 21,500 miles of
road, or 70 miles to each million of
people, should have 153,700 miles lo he
on a par with Great Britain, and little
Japan, by tbe saint: reasoning, should
hnve ahoul eighl times ils present
mileage, or2H,500 miles of road, instead
of less than 8,000 miles, What China
should have with its 400.000,000 of inhabitants, may he imagined.
DISPUTE SETTLED.
Arbitrators' Award re Indebtedness
of Ontario and Quebec to Ottawa.
6ver since Confederation there hns
been a dispute between the Dominion
and the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec, relniive lo the indebtedness of i he
latter piovinces, then known as Canada, to what now constitutes the Dominion, and the mai ter has dragged
along its course for over HO years,   An
Ottawa despatch   says   that Ihe case
has al lasl been settled, and the commission   appointed  lo ascertain   lhe
exact indebtedness has submitted its
awards to the Finance  Department,
The counsel for the Doniinion was W.
D. Hogg, and the arbitrators, Sir John
Boyd, Sir Louis ('assault and Judge
Bill-bridge.   The first award deals wilh
funds in possession of Ontario belonging to Ihu Doniinion, and is simply lhe
stamping as coned by the arbitrators
of the account admitted hy the two
parlies as correct.   Ontario presented
on June 2, WOO, a statement showing
in (he possession of lhe Province, tail
belonging to the Dominion, $1,815,818..
50.   This statement was admitted correct by counsel for the Dominion, Certain matters iu respect, of the common
school fund and of the Northwest Angle treaty Nil, 8 have not been dually
concluded and determined, as the principal nr capital nf certain funds held
by Ilie I) ini.>ti forlhe Province have
not been entered in the statement to
Ilie credit of lhe Province, und this
award Is and shall he taken ,'o he made
wi'h respect only to the Interests dealt
wiih iu the said statement and without
prejudice to Ihe authority of ihe arbitrators in lhe final settlement of lhe
accounts. The second award is Ihe
settlement uf ihe amount due by the
Provinces of Quebec mul Ontario jointly, and paid iiy I lie Doniinion as arrears
of increased annuities to the Ojibway
Indians of Lakes Huron and Superior
under the Robinson treaties of Sept.
7th and 0th, 1850. Ilm amount fixed is
$205,000. Tbe third award proportions
between Ontario and Quebec (lie direct
debt assumed by Ihe Dominion in 1807
as follows : Ontario, $112,480.68 ; Quebec, $1(0,553.51. Tho awards are all
dated August 1st.

feel, ihe first eighl feet being of arsenical iron nut copper wns coming in towards the foot wall,   ll is supposed
lhat this is the O. K. lead,   There are
two more leads on the property run
iting parallel to the main one.   On nne
of these considerahle work has lieen
done show ing it to ho about 10 inches
wide aud is described as being a white
quartz carrying tellurium, and from
ihe nature of I he ore it is supposed to
run very high  in gold.    The nther
lead wns found to lie aliout 10 feet wide,
it is also a while quartz well mineralized witb arsenical iron.   Messrs, Ben-
eriiiau and Slrouss will leave again on
Wednesday   to do the work on the
Arlington group, up the West  Fork.
While on a visit lo Copper Mountain
Up Meyers creek T, McAuley visited a
number of the principal properties of
that district.    He says that Copper
mountain has l he largest showing he
has seen ill this country,    On the
Hoineslake, owned by  Dittmer BrosM
there is good ore from the grass roots.
A tunnel has lieen run for a distant"
of ID feel, i he face uf which is all in
ore and   is described as a magnetic
iron, carrying gold and copper.   Considerable work has Imwii done as well,
in Ihe way of surface prospect ing, and
several small shafis have been sunk
each disclosing a ledge of good  ore,
which il is believed will give good as.
say values,   On   the Copper Queen
owned by D.  McClung and VV. Fob-
beuder, an 85-foot shaft, was sunk,
disclosing a four foot ledge of copper
sulphide ore, which gave assays all the
way from $15to $00 in all values,   Tbe
Neutral is another good properly, nnd
all bough no great amount of development work has lieen done, yet a ledge
of   magnet ic  iron ore has been discovered, which gave very satisfactory
assays.   The Ram's Hoi n and Cariboo
are among lhe mure important properties.   Tbey are owned by Mr, McAuley aud associales.    Development
work on the former consists of a iium-
ber of open cuts andseverol shafts,   In
one shafl at a deplh of 25 feet a ledge
of ore    was   encountered, carrying
copper pyrites ami assaying $25 per
ton,    The   Cariboo  has considerable
work done on it.    The main shaft is
down about HO feet and at that depth a
rich lead of high grade ore was encountered similar to I hat on the Ram's
Horn.    Mr. McAuley considers  that
some day the mines of Copper Mountain will rank among the first of the
province.
