Operation-* In tbe Fairview dlatrlct
have been chiefly confined to thr
development of the Stemwinder mine,
one of the properties of the Fairview
Corporation, Limited, ssyt tbe Mining
Record. The concern labored for *
period under financial difficulties, hut
lecently the necessary capital waa provided liy the shareholders, who contented to a reconstruction acheme upon an accessible haaia. The maiu nhi.fi.
it down 300 feet and drifts on the different level, to the extent nf 4,9)0 feet,
have shown a large quantity nf ore
Since the tint of Inst yeai the shaft
has been sunk 120 feet and the third
level bas been opened up for 2U0 feet
wilh the happy result of 'proving the
oreat that depth to lie of a higher
grade than at either of tbe upper
levels. Stations have been made at
Uw three levels, and all is in roadmen
to supply tbe mill wilb ore, as soon as
the erection of lbe large rock breaker
is oonipleted. It was neertsiiry in
older to get Ihe foundation tor the
rock breaker to lake away the dump
whirh occupied the ground required
and for the past few weeks the stamp
mill bas lieen running on "the dump
with highly satisfactory results.'ft
was expected that hy ihe Hrst of the
year that, all the work of construction
would have been completed and it in
reasonable tu suppose that the work of
eii faction and development will go on
indefinitely, as the quantity of ore in
sight it very consideralile. In this
case, being a comparatively low grade
proposition, the principal question is
of cheap extraction and treatment of
the ore. Over 1,000 tons of dump ore
have been treated at Ihe mill, which
has proved thati he ore is of such a
friable nature that nver the average
can lie handled by the stamps. I', has
alto proved that the mill it perfectly
adapted for the work. The milt has 10
batteries of 211 stamps and it equipped
with all the latest labor-saving devices.
Tbe concentrators are handled by U
concentrators {At Krue vanners and
Henry Norbom vanners). The batteries are fed by 10 Challenge ore feeders,
which receive the ore from the bin
above, which holds SOO tons. The mill
|s situated about SOO feet from Ibe
mouth of the shaft and a covered track
it laid from the bottom of the bin,
at the mine, and runs directly Into the
■ill so lhat tbe ore can I* dumped at
any portion of the bin. A large bin is
situated below the rock breaker so
that the work of carrying the ore is
only carried on in the day time. The
concentrators are driven by a 25 h. p.
upright engine, and the uill is driven
by a 127 h. p. Bales-Corliss engine.
These engines ate of sufficient capacity
to drive a mill of double the site, and
it is tbe Intention to add 20 more
stamps in the .pring, and all arrangements have been made so that Ihese
can he added without stopping Ihe
present mill, except for possibly a day,
to couple the main shaft. Tbe mill is
heated by the exhaust steam from the
engine, so that no fire It used in the
mill. The holler house It sit ual ed midway hetween the mill and the shaft
house and is composed of two large
tubular hollers (140 h. p.). The com-
pressor (four-drill Hand) Is situated at
the head of Ihe shaft and a 85 b. p.
hoisting engine is also In this building,
A large Blake pump is on Ihe third
level find pumps tbe water from the
mine to the mill, where it will be used
in case of shortage of water at any
time. To the north of tbe tKiiler house
is situated the saw and planing mill,
and all the lumber used in the erection
of mill (except what was on band) was
out at this mill. Tbe blacksmith shop
it situated immediately to the north
west of the shaft house. A Pellon
wheel will be Installed al this point*
which will supply Ihealr for the forget
by a fan and operate the electric light
gentleman Is also the secretary nf the
corporation, combining two nf the
most important offices in thu gift of
tbe company. The corporation has a
good water supply to all building*,
and the comfort of the workmen has
not been forgotten. The boarding
bouse is very roomy and can accommodate fiO men comfortably. Tbe engineer's and mill men's hunk house is
situated tothe left of Ihe boarding
house, while the hunk bouse of tiie
miners is nearer l be mine. The superintendent's nfilfe and assay office are
situated midway and overlooking all
the works and are very complete in
all details, as is necessary in this important branch of the business.
The intention of thi cot|ioration is to
shortly install electric machinery aud
operate the entire plant by a water
power, wbich will economise considerably.
In addition to the extraction of ore
fnr the mill, the corporation uill cut).
tinue the work of development, and
shortly a shafl is to be sunk vertically
cm the. vein from tbe 300 io 400-fooi
level. When-this is accomplished a
rise will he wade to the surface, com
ing out immediately behind th- mill
and all the ore will he hoisted and
dumped directly into the mill ore bin,
after passing through the crusher,
which will be pleased at lhe head of
the shaft. This plan is lieing followed
upon the advice of the Provincial
mineralogist, Mr. Hoiiertson, ami it is
expected will redone the cosl of extrac-
ion to a very low point. The corporation vownt several other promising
properties, but no work is lieing done
on them at. present, with the exception
nf I he coal measures, situated 10 miles
from Fairview, whicli are being worked
in a small way io order to supply the
local demand. The intention is to, in
Ihe near future, thoroughly exploit
this area as the quality of coal now
heing extruded is ofa very high grade.
At the time nf writing, December
Sth, the ground has lieen cleared and
ore bins erected at the hoist, and wit li
In a few days the mill will Iw supplied with ore from tbe mine. Uy
New Year results will be known as the
cleanup will lake place early in Janu
ary, but the prospects are eminently
favorable, aud us Ihe company has
now a thoroughly practical and ex
perienced man in charge of operations
it may confidently look forward to a
long and successful career.
Tbe Dominion Consolidated Com
pany, limited, operutingpro|ierlies immediately above ihe Stemwinder, are
getting ready lo commence active
oprra'lniis, having, it is understood,
completed arrangements fur large
working capital, and a new era of
prosperity seems to be with us.

Much dissatisfaction is expressed
among a large majority of the patrons
of the V. & N. Telephone Company at
its action in charging for conversations
between here und Greenwood and
Phoenix, for whicli l here was formerly
no charge, this priviledge being given
to those, who were paying a monthly
rental for the use of 'phones. It is
doubtful if the new system adopted liy
the company will bring as much revenue ns was derived from the old system, owing to tbe number of 'phones
that have and will he ordered out since
the new system was put in vogue.
There is no doubt that before the V.
It N, company purchased the Columbia line that both it and the Columbia Telephone company lost considerable money, hut it is rather a shortsighted policy for to undertake to
make up the losses sustained hy oper
aiing a competing line, by charging
exhot-bitiuit and almost prohibiten y
rates, since it acquired the old Columbia Hne,
The bonding nf the  Morrison mine,
in D.-adwond camp,   at   the  present
time, while copper is sn low,  speaks
■Well for the future of the  Boundary
country.   If Boundary properties  are
sought nfler during the present  tein
p r;iry depiession in the copper  mar
bei.it furnishes a good idea  nf the
demand there.will be, ns soon as cop
ft again gets buck to its proper val
ne, for the big copper proposiliont nf
which there are such a  large  number
1.1 this district.   The  Morrison  is  a
big low grade copper proposition, hut
it is the large bodies, even   if of low
garde, lhat are demanding the attention of the investor,   it has heen dent
oustraied beyond a doubt  that  it is
not  ibe properties containing small
veins, even of exceptionally high   values, that are looked upon with favor by
those seeking investment.   The mine
wns thoroughly examined hy mining
engineers   of   unquestionable ability
and their report so satisfied the   syndicate for whom the report was made,
of the possibilities of  the Morrison,
that a bond   was   taken   on it.   The
«mmiiii involved in Ihe deal isstifflci*
■•-ntly large to indicate that the   parties putting np the money 'are niep
nf importance, who it would  appear
are eil her sure,   or  think  they  are
sure, that  the  copper market will
right itself in a very short  time, as
the date for  making  a payment of
$80,000 is only a month  distant.
Thn description of the Stemwinder,
the properly of the Fairview Corporation, L'in iti d, which appears elsewhere in fhls Issue, shows that the
property is now ina position to mine
and treat its ores on a comparatively
extem-ivescale atid furnishes a striking example of what can be accomplished by the enterprise of an individual, possessed of unbounded faith
in Ihe ultimate Mitirfactory lesulls to
he obtained from bis energies. At
one time slock in the properties of
Fairview Corporation sold readily and
the money obtained from the large
►ales was expended in developing the
properties, m ot-t of the work being
done on the Siemwinder. But there
came a time when there was not en*
ong money in the treasury for further
development, shareholders became
ditatistietl, and the Investing public
looked upon the purchase of stock in
the Fail view Corporation as anything
but a profitable investment. These
circumstances gave a set-back to the
camp, and Fairview for some time was
very quiet Indeed. Whether t hese unsatisfactory results were due to mismanagement or other causes it mallei* not, the fact remains that but
little attention wns paid to the camp
for nine time. In spite of this condi
tlena of affairs there'.*. as one individual interested in the Company who
never lost faith in the properties of the
Fairview Corporation* and that individual was Richard Uusstll. Through
his efforts tlie stock of the company
was made accessnble, by whii h nielli
od sufficient funds were raised to put
the Stemwinder in its present satisfac
tory condition. In a few days a clean
up wili be mude, winch is expected by
the management, of the mine, who
base tbeir sanguine expectation! on
former tests of small amounts, to give
results that will bring joy to the shareholders. Fail view ittiip is now the
scene of much activity, due principally
to tbe enterprise of I he Fairview Corporation in general and Mr. Russell In
pai Liutil.il*. This instance demonstrates
what might be dune in many other
camps if tlmy contained more men
possessed of the enterprise of Mr. Rtts-
s- II, It is just such men as he who set
the wheels of abandoned properties in
motion, npd make theui dividend payers instead of allowing them to remain
as monuments of   mismanagement.

It is only a question of a short time]
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be ^constructed^ This line wi
be now being built, but for the* a
of laborers* Whe&this road Is bi-i-t,
most of the spur lines to the liffereritl
mining camps will stafct frotti h'erfc,
making this the railway centre^ of this
district. Wittrthe advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lota!
purchased and taken off the' market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you

Mr. J. 11. Turner, ihe new Agent*

opened his oftke on Thursday, December 12t h, nlihongh it. will he several
weeks hefoie the establishment, is com
pletely lilted up and in thorough
working order. As already an
iioiiiiccd, the British Oolitmhia Agency
is now located in Salisbury House,
L union Wall, one of the most modern
and handsome business blocks in the
Oity of London. Mr, Tinner has selected a palatial suite of four or Ave
rooms on the second flour m.il the cost
of furnishing and maintaining Ibe
same will run into a considerable sum,
as the rent alone at a'moderate estimate must amount to bet Heen $1,000
mid $1,600 per annum, Mr. Arthur
Turner, the ex-fieuiier's son, is acting
as the secretary of the agency, and it
is iindeistood thai Mr. A. K. Stuarl,
who had charge of thu Provincial mineral exhibit at the Palis and Glasgow
Ks positions, will also be included iu
the staff. ,
The situation of the offiee—the centre of the business pot lion of the cit y—
has given genvrul satisfaction to British Columbians, who at one time
feared Mr. Turner would locate ill tho
west end. It is' understood ' that at
flrst he favored Victoria street, and
even at the lust moment very iieurly
decided on a suite of offices in . Cock-
spur street, As to the wisdom of
spending t-o much money on rent and
maintenance the general opinion is
that it is a mistake. A much smaller
office would have sufficed, and if the
Province has such a huge sum of money to expend it could well .lie.devoted
to more advenliigeous purposes, sii'h
as the insert ion of ftAyet tiseiuenla in

Much dissutisfaciion is expressed
among a large majority of the patrons
of the V, & N. Telephone Oompany at
its action in charging for conversations
between here and Greenwood and
Phoenix, for which there was formerly
no charge, this priviledge being given
to those, who were paying a monthly
rental for the use of 'phones. It is
doiibiful if the new system adopted by
the company will bring as much revenue as was derived from the old system, owing to the number of 'phones
that have and will he ordered out since
the new system was put in vogue.
There is no doubt that before the V.
AN, company purchased the Columbia line that both It and the Columbia Telephone company Inst considerable money, hut it is raiher a shortsighted policy for lo underialte tb
make up the losses sustained hy oper
aiing a competing line, by charging
exhoibitniit and almost pmhibitoiy
rates, since it acquired the old Columbia line.
The bunding of the Morrison mine,
in Deadwood camp, at the present
time, while copper is so low, speaks
well for tlie future of the Boundary
i-nillitry. If Boundary properties are
Br niglit after during l he present tein
p rury depiession in the copper mar
ki'i.'n furnishes a good Idea of the
demand there will be, as soon a? cop
p-r again gets back lo Its proper val
ne, for the big copper propositions of
which there are such a large number
ii Ihis dislrict. The Morrison is a
big low grade copper proposition, hut
ii is the large bodies, even If of low
garde, that are demanding the attention of lhe investor. It has heen dem-
nnstraied beyond a doubt that it is
not ibe properties containing small
veins, even of exceptionally High values, that are looked upon with favor liy
those seeking Investment. The mine
was thoroughly examined hy mining
engineers of unquestionable ability
and their reporl so satisfied the syndicate for whom the report was made,
of the possibilities of the Morrison,
that a bond was t;iken on it. The
amount involved in lho deal issufflei-
4-ntly large to indicate that the parties putting up the money'are niep
_f import ance, who It would appear
are eil her sure, or think they are
lore, that the copper market will
right itself in a very short time, as
the ilate for making a payment
$80,000 is only a month  distant.
The description of I \ia Stemwinder,
the property of the Fairview Corporation, iihiiltt'd, which appears elsewhere in this Issue, shows lhat th*
properly is now in a position to mine
and treat its ores on a comparatively
extensive scale and furnishes a striking example of what can he accomplished hy the enterprise of an individual, possessed of uiihoundtd faith
in the ultimate Hiti.'fiictory icsiills to
he obtained from his energies. At
one time slock in the properties of
Fairview C'oiporation sold readily and
the money obtained from the large
►ales was expended in developing the
properties, in ott of the work being
done on the S: em win der. But there
came a time when there was not en-
oog money in the treasury for further
development, shareholders became
disatii-tieil, and the investing public
looked upon the purchase of stock in
I he Fail view Corporal ion as anything
but a profitable investment. These
circumstances gave a set-back to the
cninp, and Fairview for some time was
very quiet indeed. Whether these unsatisfactory results were due to mismanagement ur other causes it mat-
lew not, the fact remains that hut
little at tention wits paid to the camp
for some time. In spite of this condi
tions nf affairs there Mas one individual interested in the Company who
never lost faith in the properties of the.;
Fairview Corponition, and that Individual was Richard Busstll. Through
his efforts the stock of the company
wasiiia.teaccetsable, by whiih meth
od sufficient, funds were raised to put
the Stemwinder in its present saiisfac
tory condition. In a few days a clean
up will he made, winch is expected by
the management of the mine, who
base Iheir sanguine expectatioi s on
former tests of small amounts, to give
results lhat will bring joy to the shareholders, FniivifW ean.p is now the
scene of much activity, due principally
to the enterprise of I he Fairview Corporation in general and Mr. Kussell in
pailicul.ir. This instance demonstrates
»hat might be done in many other
camps if they coiitninud more men
possessed of the enterprise of Mr. Runs' II. It is jnsl such men as he who set
the wheels of abandoned properties in
motion, njiil make them dividend payers instead of allowing them to remain
as monuments of   mismanagement.
It is only a question ofa short time,

most of the spur lines to the different

Mr. J. H. Turner, lhe new Agent*
General for Brili-h Columbia, lias assumed the duties of his position and
opened his office on Tliuridiiy, December 12th, nHhongh it will he several
weeks befoi e the establishment, is completely lilted up and in thorough
working order. As already announced,the British Columbia Agency
is now located in Salisbury House,
L• union Wall, one of the most modern
and handsome business blocks in the
City of London. Mr. Turner has selected a palatial suite of four or live
rooms on the second floor in,(I the cost
of furnishing and maintaining the
same will run into a considerable sum,
as the rent alone at a'luodcrati* estimate must amount to hetween $1,000
and $1,600 per annum. Mr, Arthur
Turner, the ex-Premier's son, is acting
as the secretary ot Ihe agency, and it
Is undeistood that Mr. A. K. Stuart,
who hadcliarfec of tho Provincial mineral exhibit at the Paris and Glasgow
KxpohiiiouK, will also bu included in
the staff.
Tho situation of the office—tho centre of thu business poitiouof the city-
has given general satisfaction to British Columbians, who at one time
feared Mr. Tinner would locate in the
wesl. end. It is understood that at
flrst he favored Victoria street, and
even at the lust moment very -neurly
decided on a suite of offices in . Cock-
s|,ur street, As to the ivisdom of
spending to much money on rent and
nmititcniiuco tlie general opinion Is
that it is a mistake. A much smaller
oflice would have sufficed, und if the
Province has such a large sum of money tn expend it could well lie devoted
to nioreiidveiitiigeoiis purposes, hiv.1i
as the insert ion of adveitisemunlu in

An Encouraging Future.
Of all countries in the world, none
witl enter upon the new year wilh
brighter prospects than the Doniinion
of Canada. Of all the seven provinces
of the Dominion, none has a more substantial foundation upon which to
huild its hopes of the future than the
province of British Columbia. The
unsatisfactory state of the market for
tliu two principal metals we produce
may for a few months exercise a disturbing influence. But in one case at
least the uncertain factor will soon
pass out of the market. Tbe increasing uses to which electricity Is being
applied will soon create a steady demand for copper. The erection of lead
refinery within the bounds of our own
piovince, which should in a large measure render us independent of th*
United Stales combine, and the marked
reduction in the rates for Ireal ment of
ore, should have a stimulating influence upon Ihe silver lead mines of Ihe
interior early in the year. The wisdom of the Dominion government in
granting a bonus for every ton of lead
refined is about to lie justified in a
most marked manner, we hope.
There are many prospects tbat may
he converted into shipping'ininvs very
speedily when less costly facilities for
treatment are available. With stable,
progressive governnient In give a tone
of conttdence to the business community and to enter upon necest-ary
enterprises for the removal of the
obstacles that block expansion, the
rate of progression in this province
will he so rapid that in a few years old
timers will wonder what form of madness lias taken possession of the people.
Next in importance lo our provincial
welfare is that of our Eastern neighbors. If we commence at the eastern
boundary ot British Columbia and
work our way to the waters of tlie Allan lie, we will probably Hud the same
optimistic feeling as possesses us here.
There cannot be activity in one section
without a stimulus being exerted upon
all. The cattle ranchers on the western pi airie country aro benefitted by
the increased demand for beef in the
growing markets Of British Columbia.
With sixty million bushels of gtain
for export and great streams of settlers
flowing in as a result of the unique advertisement ibe country has received,
Is it any wonder the farmers of Manitoba are in a buoyant mood and that
he business men share Iheir feelings ?
Western Ontario too is heing transformed under the remarkable influence
of Clergnc, who seems to possess almosl magical (towers for transforming
the face of nature. The works he his
established around Sault Ste, Marie
nre almost of marvelous magnitude,
all things considered.   Railways are
made to transport the produce that
has heen raised and the goods that
have heen turned out fast enough lo
satisfy the demtnds; there are not
enough vessels on the lakes to convey
the wheat to iti destination. The result is the manufacturing and shipbuilding industries are more active
than at any previous time in the history of the country. Quebec is moving along in tbe old slow way, disliking and repelling to some extent innovation. On tbe Atlantic coast we
And a steel producing enterprise tbat
is sending ita wares even into tne protected markets of the United States
and to the cradle of tbe iron industry,
the Clyde. Towns have sprung up
there in • year, after tbe manner of
some of tbe coal cities in our own
province.
Tbe future of Canada is indeed full
of promise, As a young country perhaps ft ia pre-eminently our duty to
press forward eagerly into tbe future,
forgetful of tbe period of industrial
probation through which we have
passed.—Victoria Times.
