IN CARMI CAMP
Rich Strike in the Butcher
Boy Shaft
GOOD ORE ON JWt CARMI
In Ihe Carmi Shaft a Very Rich Pay
Shoot Was Struck the Past
Week at 125 feet.
During the past week development
work on the Carmi and Butcher Boy
in Carmi camp has uncovered much
better ore than had heretofore been
taken out of either property. The rich
shoot was tapped in the Carmi shaft at
a depth of 125 feet. This body of ore
is between five and six feet in width.
The Carmi is owned by an English
syndicate at the bead of which is E. H.
Thruston. The mine is situated at the
junction of Carmi creek with the West
fork of Kettle river, and adjoining the
f*wno* Carmi. Last year 900 tone of
"" ore was shipped from the mine to the
-'' Greenwood smelter. Previous work on
the property consisted of open outs for
the purpose of tracing the ledge, a tunnel 85 feet, an incline shaft 48 feet,
and the shaft on which sinking is now
being done.' Two drifts have been run
from the 100-foot level in this shaft,
»ne west 120 feet and the other east 60
feet. About 17,000 cubic feet of stoping
has also been done.
The Butcher Boy, owned by Jas. C.
Dale and Jas. Kerr, is one of a group
of four claims lying west of and located on the Carmi lead. In the past
month a shaft haa been sunk on the
lead to a depth of 25 feet. The ore
body ia between four and five feet wide
at that depth, and a^ sample taken
from acroas the ledge assayed 170 in
gold. Two shifts are working on the
property. The shaft will be continued
down to the 100-foot level before drifting and stoping is commenced. The
strike on the Carmi at the 125-foot level
proves the whole group of claims in
that camp to be very valuable properties, as the lead runs through all of
them. Although the lead had been
prospected west of the Carmi through
the Butcher Boy, No, 2 Fraction, No.
3 and May by open cuts, the shaft now
being sunk on the Butcher Boy is the
first attempt at proving the continuance of the lead with depth. So far
the work has proved more than satisfactory to the .owners.   The lead is
gradually widening out and doubtless
at the 100-foot level will be as wide as
the Carmi at that depth. The values
in the Butcher Boy are somewhat
higher than those of the Carmi.

MINING NOTES.
A. E. Anderson has just completed
assessment work on his claims for the
season. He owns the Colbrooke, Colorado Madura and Silent Partner on
Cranberry creek, and Jo Jo on Wallace
mountain, all promising claims. On
the Colbrooke an open cut 20 feet deep
and 24 feet long has been made, and
frofi! this a tunnel has been run 28 feet.
The ledge is galena, 2% feet wide, and
two assays from it ran $85 and $124.96.
On the Colorado Madura a tunnel has
been run 15 feet and also .considerable
prospecting on the surface. The Silent
Partner is an extension of the Colbrooke. One assessment has been done
on it. The Jo Jo lies in a northerly
direction from the Mono near Dry
creek. Two assessments have been
done on the property.
Clement Vacher, superintenderiftsff
the Sally group on Wallace mountain,
left Tuesday last for Central camp in
the Boundary country to look after development work on properties owned
by his company. From there he goes
to Penticton where several assessments
have to be done. It will not be decided until the return of Robert Wood
from England whether development
will be continued on the Sally thia
winter.
———   ——• *
P. J. Kennedy has completed assessment work on the Extension for Pit-
took A. Werner of Greenwood. The
Extension lies east of the Washington
and Idaho on Wallace mountain. The
work done consists of two shafts, 8 and
10 feet, and 20 feet of surface work.
The ledge is an iron capping showing
some galena. He also uncovered a
quarts ledge well mineralised east of
where the work haa been done.
R. Parry and D. McKay relocated a
claim Tuesday last near the King
Solomon, from which they brought
down some nice specimens of copper
ore. The claim was formerly the San
Francisco and owned by Greenwood
parties. 	
P. J. Kennedy left •Thursday for
Greenwood to make arrangements for
developing tbe Brack Diamond and
Standard during the winter. These
claims join the Rambler and both have
very ric> leads of silver-gold ore.

Andrew Laid law of Greenwood has
been successful in interesting Chicago     |
capital in the Bounty, an adjoining
claim to the Rambler on Wallace mountain.   Sufficient funds are now at the
disposal of the company to lift the
bond and develop the property to a
shipping stage.   Messrs. Laidlaw and   v
W. T. Smith will be in Beaverdell the
the early part of next week to make      <
final arrangements for the continuous
development of the property.
It is understood that the Work contemplated at present will be a 100-foot
vertical shaft and from that level
drifting or crosscutting '\-fcT0j$i£k
necessary. ,'^vJ   .
Considerable work haa already been
done on the Bounty, but unfortunately
a mistake occurred In driving the tunnel, which, instead of going straight
ahead as the ordinary tunnel is expected to do, described the arc of a
circle, and if it had not been stopped in
its rather erratic course, would have
emerged into daylight a few feet from
where it started.   However this is not
an uncommon occurrence in a  new
mining camp.   The same difficulty occurred in a drift of the Winnipeg a few
years ago, and had it not been for the
failure of the engineer's transit to follow it in a straight line, that drift
would probably- still be winding its
devious course through the Winnipeg
mine.   This tendency to curvature in'
drift or tunnel was once explained to
us by a young mining engineer from
the east aa being the result of ground
swelling.   He waa from Montreal, or
Toronto, or Kingston, or St. John, or
Halifax, or some other of the mining
centers of the mush or fish belt.   Incidentally it may be stated that the young
mining engineer expressed himself aa
astonished at the inartistic display in
some of the Greenwood  dry goods
windows..

Mr. Templeman waa one of the Liberal
nomineea and made a very strong run,
getting fully ninety per cent, of the
Canadian vote in that city. His acceptance of a portfolio would tend to
bring a Urge number of unionist in
touch with the Liberals, aa he has been
a member of the Typographical union
for a number of years and haa always
employed only union printers on his
paper, the Victoria Daily Times.
Senator Templeman would perhaps be
out of place associated with Blair,

might accomplish great good even with
auch associates.

BEAVERDELL, B. C, NOVEMBER 16,1901
Thl Liberals of British Columbia
are endeavoring to get representation
in the Dominion cabinet from this
province. The names most prominently
mentioned are Senator Templeman of
Victoria, and Ralph Smith of Nanaimo.
Senator Templeman may be termed
the father of the Liberal party in B. C,
for previous to his taking charge of
the Victoria Times the party waa a
ragged, beggarly aggregation of soreheads, with neither head, brains nor
respectability. Through hia efforts
the Liberals of Victoria were organised
and with them hundreds of eastern
Conservatives residing in that city,
who were forced into the Liberal ranks
by the arrogance and stupidity of the
moss-back element composing the majority of the Conservative association
IT is not possible that Ralph Smith,
could "conscientiously" accept a portfolio in the Laurier government. Two
years ago, in an address before the
Dominion Trades and Labor Congress,
he waa reported as saying that he "had
lost faith in the word or honor of the
members of tbe Laurier government."
The member for Vancouver constituency would surely not associate with
men whom he believed to be untruthful and dishonorable.
The following dispatch from Ottawa
appeared in Aa number of the coast
papers: "The Houseworkers* union
(domestic servants' union) have decided to issue a circular to distribute in
all the cities of Canada, protesting
againat the action of Hon. A. G. Blair,
minister of railways, in introducing
Chinese servants into his household.
The union intends to try and work up
an agitation which will arouse public
opinion against the innovation and
prevent others from following the example set by the minister of railways."
This dispatch will be particularly trying to the politicians who have been
attempting td form an alliance between
the Liberals and Labor Unionists in
this province. In fact, a number of
railway boosters in the employ of Jim
Hill, and other adventurers, have gone
s> tfar aa to proclaim themselves
" Labor-Liberals, and don't you forget
it." This dispatch will, we hope, open
the eyes of Labor Unionists to the fact
that an alliance with a party which haa
always been uncompromisingly opposed to labor uniona ia the heighth of
absurdity—sit unholy alliance that can
only result disastrously to the cause of
labor unionism.

The News is prepared to do all kinds

C. J&,. Shaw, C. E., has finished on
the Hird Cash group and is now surveying the Arlington.
Dore and Harris are iu about fifteen
feet on the tunnel being run to tap the
lead on the Highland Chief.
The Francis hotel, Beaverdell, was
was opened the past week, and the
finishing touches are being put on.
Hugh Cropley has commenced development work on the Wellington and
Home. take, situated about half a mile
from town.
H. Parker, formerly superintendent
of the Brooklyn and Stem winder in
Phoenix camp, will visit the district
next week and take samples from *he
principal properties.
W. H.}Pierre, who had been in charge
of the News for a couple of weeks, left
Thursday morning for his mine in
Mosher camp, where he intends to
work on the Leslie during the winter.
Ore is being sacked at the Rambler
ready for shipment and thewagon road
is completed to the river. Regular
abipment* will be made to the Greenwood smelter aa soon as there is sufficient snow for sleighing.
* Some effort should be made by the
townaite people to protect the two
colonies of beaver now working within
townaite limits. As both these colonies
are within half a mile of the town, and
it is quite evident from the work done
the past three months that they are
few in number, it seems a pity that
they ahould be trapped or driven away.
It is something that few towns on the
coutinent can boast of—a beaver colony
at work within the townsite limits,
and there is no reason why, if left
alone, there should not be beavers
working for years within five minutes'
walk from the center of the-town.. The,
one trapped the past week, we understand, was young and the skin worth
only about $1.50.
