Oyster-Criterion Stamp Mill Will
Be Eunning by the 20th
Of This Month.
The   Bva   Is   Turning   Out   Gold
Pricks The North Western
Co. Reorganized.
Oar correspondent at the thriving
town of Camborne informs us that tho
mining properties of the eamp aro getting into splendid shape, and that the
forthcoming winter will lind tho eamp
one of the mot productive for gold
bricks in British Columbia. The past
year anil a half has produced great developments. Eighteen months since
���there was no machinery In the district,
pow there are three well-developed
thtnes, two having tramways and machine drilling plants run by compressed
air, while the other, the Northwestern,
has a plant run by electricity. The
three mines have eaeh their own private stamp-mills. Two of these mines
will Im running steadily throughout
the winter, and possibly the}! drib'���.-stern a.mi.
The Oyster-Criterion mill will start
some time about the 20 instant, all supplies are now delivered and every tiling
will be ready by that time. At the
mine there la sufficient ore blocked out
and on the dumps to keep tlie mill running steadily tiiitilspring, and astrong
force of men will be steadily employed
blockii.L-MH still further reserves. So
stock'io'-i ��� s may, we feel confident,
hope i" i 'lit by a good big dividend
being declared early in the spring of
1904. We may say, in passing, that
seldom has a big property been purchased wholly undeveloped, and in
eighteen months have sueh anexue lent
state of development and 'the great
amount of machinery Installed that is
to he teen at this Fish Creek nine.
However, lhe munayement ami officials
had every encouragement to forge a-
head and force matters from ilie starting iu at'the grassroots, and that! rectors, ii*:ir;.*.e:*. and superintendent are
wortliv of congratulation on tneMicceBS
and excel -i.t materialization of their
plans and efforts.
The Kva mine has a brief history
agree.ny very closely with that ofthe
Oyster Criterion, although the Kva is
an older proposition. The Bra was discovered about the same time as its sister property ; is supposed to be on the
same main lead and is located lower
down the mountain. The Kva is older
in the sense of being under active development at an earlier period, but Its
tramway and stamp mill wore built at
tbo same time as those on tho sister
property, though on account of supplies
having reached their destination sooner for this company, tho mill was completed and Btarted to treat ore sooner.
Last week the company shipped to
Nelson three gold bricks of a total
weight of 395 ounces troy, valued at
about Ho.iiUO. This amount represented
the savings from the Ilrst twenty days,
running of the mill. We think the result highly satisfactory, and proves the
Kva ore body to contain high values,
for the ore treated waB not picked but
was taken from the dumps that had accumulated In developing the mine.
This Is a very fair showing for a start,
and there Is littlo doubt but subsequent
monthly returns will show a considerable iiicyensp..
Nothing Is being 3one yet at the
Northwestern Development Syndicates
mine, The Goldfinch, on which most

vory fine property, similar to tho
Oyster-Criterion and the Eva. The
company have a stamp mill, and it
works very satisfactorily. A numbor
of gold briefs were turned out last winter, but it is estimated that the mill
was Installed before there was a sufficient amount of ore blocked out in reserve
to warrant tho mill being started;
therefore development could not bo prosecuted and ore taken out rapidly
enough to supply the mill aud keep it
running. Consequently the mill had
to be closed. At tho same time there
is no question that there is a great a*
bundanoe of fine ore, bnt there is a lot
of pivlitni tary worlc necessary before
it can he sloped out. It Is claimed that
the property Buffered from tile start by
bad management. However, the company has been reorganized) money has
been raii-ed to pay off tlie indebtedness

Down on Claim Jumpers.
j James Grant, a well known prospect-
.o>- and mining man of the Kootenays,
called at the office of the The Daily
| Nows last evening to express how he
and a number-of the other old-timers of
��� the Lardeau feel regarding the claim-
jumping that has been going at Poplar,
j and especially tbe efforts made to bluck
; the owners of the Lucky J tick in open-
lug up their property.
j Mr. Grant said: "The prospectors
: and mining men of that seetion feel
;very strongly regarding tbe repeated
attempts of outside parties to adverse
tlie Lucky Jack Property, thereby
keeping back tlio development of tliis
most promising camp and district. As
a prospector wbo hits spent tlie last
seven years in the Lardeau, I will say
that the country there has suffered
greatly from two classes of people���one

other the would he iiiiningoxpert. The
lirst kind of people come with a rush to

Premier McBride hns succeeded at

thoro is a feeling throughout tho provinco of greater contentment in consequence. Those who believed tiie premier would bo tinablo to form a government now find he possesses the

Canadian Counsel Return.
Hon. Clifford Sifton, Canadian Minister of the Interior, and agent for
Great Britain in the Alaskan arbitration, arrived in New York oo the Campania on Nov. 7.
Mr. Siftou and other Canadians on
board were not inclined to discuss the
findings of tho Alaskan Commission,
nor tho refusal of the Canadian Commissioners to sign the findings.
nlr. F. C. Wade, K.C., who appeared
before the tribunal as counsel for Canada, said it was true that a strip of
land about 120 miles lung was not Included In the findings because the surveys
and other necessary tlata for determining the boundary wore lacking.
Hon. Clifford Sifton's Views.
Killed Thoir Countryman.
A Chinese merchant nnd gambler of
considerable means was killed at Steveston, B.C. on the tit.h Instant by, it is
supposed, the Highbinder Society,
which is composed of his own country,
men. The Vancouver polico are invest-
I gating.
Hon. Clifford Sifton on his return to
Ottawa, speaking in reference to the
Alaskan boundary commission, said:���
The decision rendered by the commis-
ion must be accepted as final, no matter
how Canadians might feel about the
justice of tho award. In his opinion,
it was proved beyond doubt tbat the
Portland channel ran to the north of
Pcarse, Wales, SItlan and Kannaghun-
ut Islands, thus entitling Canada to all
four, and that the boundary line should
cross the range of mountains nearest the
sea.
As to the Lynn canal, It was his
judgment that the acquiescence of Great
Britain in ar, act of occupation by the
United Statos mado it difficult to expect a decision favorable to Canada.
An all-Canadian route from the In
terlor to tho coast would he, he believed, tho ultimate solution ot tho
question.
News From England.
The Pall Mall Gazette says:���" Mr,
Foster testifies that so long as Canada
followed the example of tho mother
country, she know tho ombarrasmonts
of boiug mado a dumping ground.
Since apopting another policy, her
commercial experience has been another story. A few ounces of fact in
this connection are worth tons of
theory."
Tho Liverpool Post commenting on
Mr. Chamberlain's Birmingham
speech, says: " His statements that
trade with Canada had gono up the
last few years and that the Canadian
government and the Canadian opposition will give further preference, are
thoroughly misleading."
The Post, giving figures in support
of its claim, says: " The failure of this
Canadian preferential tariff to stimulate
direct trade with tho mother country
is because the Canadian tariff is frankly protectionist and its industries are
tho least Important to Canada, and
taxes those that are thc most important.
Mr. Chamberlain claims Mr. Tarte as a
supporter, and tbo Post asks when has
Mr. Tarte changed his opinion, ex,
pressed in a letter to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, urging a revision ofthe tariff of
1897 with a view to more adequate protection. A well-known professional
man roturned from a tour in Canada,
and when interviewed by the Pall Mall
Gazette says he is certain that if wo do
not enter into closer relations with Can
ada she will conclude a reciprocity
treaty with the United States, but that
would not submerge her loyalty."
During the month of October, Immigration returns for Great Britain were
as follows : English, 2,871; IriBh, 148 ;
Scotch, 702 : foreigners, 2,122. Totals
foi* the past ton months were: English,
45.794; Irish, 2,495', Scotch, 10,139: foreigners, 114,044. In October, Australia

Wales is returning to London via Canada, and leaves Sydney Novembor 1.1.
Lord Goschen, formerly chancellor ol
tho exchequer, speaking at Liverpool
this afternoon, said he favored retaliation uuder extraordinary circumstances
requiring heroic legislation, hut he
was opposed to giving the government
a nandate authorizing retaliatory tar-
ills. Tho speaker added Joseph Chamberlain's policy was dangerous, and
that it was unstatesmanliko to characterize thoso who wore not prepared to
accept it as being unfriendly to thc
colonios.

Tho activity of the fall and summer
so notieeablo about Ferguson in the mining business shows a marked falling
off during the past fortnight. Tho Triune is closed for the winter, and the
smaller properties also havo as usual
suspended operations for the -winter
months. It will be this way until bettor and cheaper transportation facilities
are givon to tho Lardeau district. Until tbat time, tbe smaller properties
will be developed only in tho bsst season when it can bo done most cboaply,
but there would bo a spurt by thc owners to put their properties on a shipping
basis if it wero reasonably sure that the
railway would be extended in'lheim.
mediate future. As yet, however,
there is no sueh good news.
The Nettie L. was closed down Tuesday, on advice from the London oflice.
This action was taken on account of
the impossibility oi the Silver Cup reduction works being completod inside
of two months and it seems the Nettie
has sufficient ore oa the dumps and in
the stopes to meet the wishes of tlio directors until they can start shipping t:>
tlio concentrator, and there is no room
to store the ore if it v:cvo taken out.
So for at least sixty days this mine will
remain closed.
At tiie Silver Cup, present conditions
will not be materially changed until the
concentrator is started. Tho forco will
bo kept on development work, mainly
in sinking tho shaft to meet the long
tunnel from tiie sunshine which is
being driven. Preparations are being
made to take out a littlo oro from tbo
vein that was encountered in running
this tunnel.

these latest, plans, thore will not bo so

as many expected for tbe lirst part of
tbo winter, but when the reduction
works are finished and in operation,
thoro will undoubtedly be a great revival. Some of tlie men who were employed at the Nettie will leave ihe
camp, but the majority of them say
they will remain hore.

FRIDAY. NOVEMBER ill, 1903.
THB  NEW   CABINET.
There is now no room for reasonable doubt of the ability and strength
of the McBride government to administer lhe affairs of this province
in a better manner than tliey have
been attended to for a number of
years back. It appears to us that
Premier McBride has a pretty strong
government at his back, and the
only source of weakness is-tlie slim
majority in the house. This, however need not make lhe administration a weak one, for it will not be
found necessary or advisable tq introduce any drastic measures. The
country cries out for good honest
government, and most of the people
are not concerned largely about
what set ot men introduces it. it is
.felt generally that the country has
gone long enough in thc old dillydallying way, and this is not a time
io split hairs over party questions ;
the elected representatives of the
people who go to Victoria are expected lo pull together (or thc best
interests of the whole country, at all
events until the ill-repute that is attaches to the province's ability to
govern itself in an honest and slates
manlike manner is wiped out.
I: is conceded by lhe best advised
Liberal press ol tiie country that
Ilon. Charles Wilson \s practically
sure of election in Vancouver, partly on account of lhe terminal city's
ambition to have a representative in
the cabinet, and partly to help along
lite present advantage it has over
Victoria.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Several complaints have boon
heard lately ol Ihe absence ol any
ijteuns of procuring a marriage license: iti tire v.'hble Lardeau district.
li' a license is wanted, the young
man has to go lo thc expense of
making a trip io Nelson or Revelstoke, Tins condition is liable lo
cause great hardship to the young
man, fur one cannot make the trip
short of $25, besides thc loss of 4
days ol valuable time. It is also n
hardship on thc cotniiuiniiy, in that
it hns tt tendency to discourage
young men of limited means from
entering upon the'condition that
would be a means ot promoting the
welfare ot our district towns. A
bachelor town is not the best kind
of a t_.wn, lor the population is
never settled and contented, Single men go outside to spend the
winter, and they do not spend their
earnings, as a rule, in building up a
town and a town's institutions as
they would if they were married and
The recently inaugurated all
daylight boat and train service bet
ween Trout Lake and Nelson is
proving most advantageous to this
district. The Nelson daily paper
now reaches Ferguson only 24 hours
from the lime it is taken from the
press, and letters posted at Nelson
Tuesday night are received in Ferguson the next night. This is
good for the business men of the
Lardeau, and our greatest worry
now is the C. P. R. Co.'s determination to allow the Lardeau branch
to be closed for a part of the winter.
Tlie Kootenay Mail complains
that Hallowe'en pranks were carried
altogether too far in Revelstoke,
and some persons resorted to breaking windows in the school building.
We have been informed that some
persons who should have better
judgment entered the Ferguson
school building and did some little
damage. In some towns that sort
of conduct would have been sifted to
the bottom.
It is always wise to provide brick
chimneys on buildings on the main
street in a town where, like Fergus-
on, the buildings are of wood.
What might have proven a disastrous fire was narrowly averted on
Sunday last in the building used for
a barber shop downstairs and shoe
shop upstairs at the end of the main
street, by parlies noticing it in time
lo extinguish it before damage was
done. Brick chimneys come expensive, but they are cheaper often in
the end.
It is understood that the provincial Legislature will hold but a short
session to pass thc estimates and
possibly a loan bill and then adjourn
until alter the new year. The Vancouver bye-election will be held before lhe house meets again, and
sliould there be any other bye-
elections needful iu consequence of
the protests that are on file, these
will also have been held. At that
time the Government will know the
exact standing ot the house, and
they can get properly down lo
business.
The great mayoralty contest in
New York is over, and the Tammany candidate won by a large majority. The great wicked city had
lhe trial of a term of good government during which lime the flnan
cial and moral conditions were much
improved, but the splendidly organized Tammany machine proved the
stronger element, and Ihe former
conditions will no doubt be restored.
A few years back the people ot
our capital city, Victoria, appeared
to believe a government could hardly exist without one or more members from that city in the cabinet.
The present McBride Cabinet has
not a single member in it from Vancouver island.
We have not yet seen an announcement of when the British Columbia capital will be moved to Revelstoke or Nelson.
