ISA NEW SCHEME
McLean   Bros.   Will   Try   a
Steam Scraper.
PROTECTED BY PATENTS
Will Remove Three Cubic Yards ot
Material at One Operation-.
Big Tunnel Started.
Tuesday evening's boat brought
in J. A. McLean, one of the McLean
Bros, who have the contract for the
3,000-foot tunnel, four miles from
Brooklyn. He had just returned
from central Washington, where he
purchased a carload of horses, to
be used on his firm's two contracts.
The animals were driven in by way
of Cascade City, and with those
now in use make 75 head on their
work.
Mr. McLean informed the News
man that he is daily expecting a
machine entirely new to railroad
building, namely, a steam scraper.
This machine, when installed and in
working order, will remove three
cubic yards of earth or gravel at
one time, and if successful will prove
of incalculable assistance in railway
construction work. The scraper,
which has a patent dumper, was
manufactured in Victoria, while the
35 horse-power boiler by which it is
to be operated, comes from Seattle.
It is manufactured of the best material obtainable and is very substantial and durable.
Nothing of the kind has ever been
put in use on railroad work before,
the nearest being a digger operated
by two engines. This machine was
invented by a man in McLean Bros,
employ, who has long wished to
give it a practical test on the work.
While no doubt exists in the minds
of those interested as to its success,
that fact has yet to be demonstrated
by actual operation. It is fully
protected by letters patent, issued
in both Canada and the United
States.
MCLEAN BROS. WORK.
McLean Bros, have got well
along with their work, outside the
long tunnel, on the first contract,
which consists largely of the seven
miles of switchbacks over the hill
above the tunnel, and a mile or
more of work beyond. In addition
they have about two and a half
miles near Gladstone, which they
are now attacking with all the en-
ergy that men and money can command. This work will be under
the immediate supervision of J. A.
McLean, while A. C. McLean and
S. A. McLean will stay at the
tunnel, one being at each end of
that long bore.
Altogether this firm of contractors
have five camps established, and
now have nearly 500 men on their
pay rolls. At both Gladstone and
the tunnel substantial log buildings
for boarding and eating houses, as
well as stables, stores and blacksmith shops, have been put up, being the best evidence that they will
be located here for a long time to
come.
The shipping bills for the Canadian Rand Drill Co.'s 14-drill air
compressor have arrived, and that
machinery is expected to get here
in a short time. It will, of course,
be hauled to the tunnel at once and
be installed at the earliest possible
moment. Seven drills will be operated at each end, requiring a force
ol 150 men on this work alone for
several months. Until the air drills
arrive the work is being done by
the slow hand process in order to
get a start on the long bore.

I  CONSTRUCTION NOTES,   g
The engineers' headquarters in
town have been cribbed and banked
up in preparation for the winter.
John Twohy was down from his
contract just above town on Monday, and states that he is now well
along with his work.
Mining experts have been in
Gladstone this week examining
some of the fine free gold properties in the Burnt Basin region.
V. W. Smith, who was up from
his contract on Lower Arrow Lake
this week, says he has over 100
men at work, and is making good
headway.
McPherson Bros. & Stout's saw
mill is expected to be moved from
its present location to Gladstone the
coming week. After removal it
will be run night and day.
The seven miles of switchback, J.
A. McLean informs the News man,
are about completed and ready for
the steel, which will not reach this
point for some time to come.
Some 70,000 ties, to be used between Cascade City and the Boundary country summit, have heen contracted for to W. H. Fisher, who
will employ some 30 or 40 men on
he contract.
Contractor Turnquist, partner of
A. Ryberg, who has a contract several miles below Brooklyn, has secured another piece of work near
Greenwood, and will soon have a
force of men at work there also.
Frank Oliver & Co., who have
the contract for building two and
one-half miles of switchback at the
big tunnel, have secured another
sub-contract from Foss & McDon-
ell, near the new town of Niagara,
beyond Grand Forks,
Scotty Donald, of the Half-Way
House, was in town Sunday. Mr.
Campbell, his partner, who has just
come over from the Crow's Nest,
went out 10 their hotel with him.
Scotty has secured his license, and
is now ready to do business.
Messrs. Oliver and Stabile, of
this city, who have secured a lot at
Niagara, between Grand Forks and
Greenwood, have begun construction on a commodious hotel building. Mr. Stabile started for that
point this week. Mr. Oliver has
another contract near Niagara.
A man named Fraulier, aged 28
and single, was brought down from
Twohy Bros, camp Sunday afternoon to the company's hospital.
Both eyes had been seriously injured by a premature blast due to
carelessness with powder. Dr.
Ewing states that he hopes to be
able to save his eyesight.
Mr. H. T. Wilgress, right of way
agent for the C. P. R., being unable
to make satisfactory arrangements
for the right of way through the
Johnson ranch, has commenced
condemnation proceedings and the
matter will be referred to arbitrators. Sydney M. Johnson, P. L. S.,
of Anaconda, is acting for the railway company,���Grand Forks Miner.
The last issue ot the Grand Forks
Miner says that Contractor Degnin
has commenced work on his contract just below town. J. A. Hanson has a force of men constructing
a road to his camp at the end of the
tote road. The tote road between
Pat Welsh's camp and the Summit
is a first-class road, and is a great
improvement over this end of the
route. J. A. McDonell, who has
the 600 foot tunnel just this side of
the summit is fixing up comfortable
quarters with a view of pushing the
work all winter. Contractor Anderson, who has the contract through
the Gilpin ranch, is making good
progress and expects to have his
station completed about the first of
the year.
NOW DOING WORK
New  Owners Are  Developing
Mountain Chief Group.
RICH ORE BROUGHT DOWN
Golden Gate Development Co., Ltd.,
Will Actively Operate the Big
Bull Dog Copper Claims.
Last Saturday night's boat had as
a passenger D. B. Bogle, of Rossland, who came to Brooklyn to start
developmsnt work on the Mountain
Chief group of copper claims, located on Dog Creek, on the north
side of Bull Dog Mountain. This
is the group recently purchased for
the Golden Gate Development Co.,
Ltd., the new owners, by Mr. Bogle,
and of which every one who has
seen it has a good opinion.
Mr. Bogle was accompanied by
P. A. O'Farrel, the well known
mining man, who is also interested
in the company. Early the next
morning these gentlemen, went to
the claims and laid out the work.
While there Mr, O'Farrel secured a
lot of fine looking rock, which he
was showing to his friends in
Brooklyn on his return.
Several assays were made from
the samples in Rossland within the
last few days which make the fortunate holders of Golden Gate stock
look exceedingly happy. One prospective purchaser came all the way
from Rossland to secure samples
anil get his own assays. The result
was $72.48 in gold, silver and copper. Another assay gave 24 per
cent, copper and 89 oz. silver, valued at $77.50 per ton.
It really looks as though the
Mountain Chief would prove, with
development to be one of the great
claims of Kootenay.
WORKING THE CUBA.
Another promising claim only a
mile from Brooklyn, on the lake
shore south of here, is the Cuba,
owned by W. G. Burg, Wm. Ang-
stadt and Jimmy Brown. A force
of men has recently been put to
work on the property, opening it
up. About ten feet of work has
been done so far, and the copper
showing is exceedingly encouraging.
Got the Burglar.
Chief of Police John S. Ingram
came in from Rossland on Sunday
to take back E. Farrell, wanted in
that city for burglarizing Richardson's second-hand store. A description ot the man was sent to Provincial Constable Forrester, who had
no difficulty in recognizing and apprehending his man.
Eugene Farrell, who is also
known as Gallagher and by several
other aliases, was brought before
Magistrate Jordan in Rossland on
Monday, pleaded guilty, and was
promptly sentenced to six months in
Nelson jail.
This is one of the first professional burglaries committed in Ross-
and both Officer Forrester and Chief
Ingram are to be commended for
bringing the culprit to justice in
such short order.
HAS A GOOD RECORD.
Contractors' Physician Lost But
One Case So Par.
Dr. Frank J. Ewing, who has
charge of the hospital of Mann,
Foley Bros, and Larson, located in
Brooklyn, has been fortunate in the
treatment of the large number of
patients so far coming under his
care here. Out of the many fever
cases received here, but one has
died thus far, and he was pretty far
gone when placed in  the  hospital.
Another man died who disobeyed
the doctor's strict orders about his
diet when he was well on towards
recovery.
Two others have died that were
taken away, one to Rossland and
the other to Nelson. In both instances the patients were removed
against the doctor's advice, and
fatal results immediately followed.
In the Nelson case, that of Andre
Lindstrom, his sister desired and
��� rdered his removal to that city,
and the sick man could not stand
the journey, dying there last week.
Had he remained here he would
probably have recovered.
The record of the local hospital
is, therefore, all things being considered, an excellent one. Typhoid
fever, always more or less prevalent
where railway construction is being
carried on, is dependent chiefly on
careful nursing, and many a man
can testify to the excellent treatment received here in Brooklyn. It
is remarkable that more deaths have
not resulted, when the large number
of men employed���now over 5,000
���is taken into consideration.
Special Sunday Music.
Rev. John Munro, the pastor of
the First Church of Brooklyn, is a
great lover of good music, and is
also an excellent tnusiciaa himself,
he has been arranging this week to
make a feature of the music at the
evening service tomorrow, and expects to have two stringed instruments. He extends a hearty welcome to everyone in the city to attend that service. The meeting
will begin promptly at 7.30 p. m.
The morning service is held at 11
o'clock as usual.
Beginning of School.
Promptly at 9.30 Monday morning the first session of the public
school of Brooklyn began in the
building on First street provided by
the trustees. Sixteen youngsters
have been in attendance this week,
and Miss Fletcher, the capable
teacher, is giving thtm the best instruction possible. This attendance
for the start is considered very good
indeed, and it will doubtless, in-
crease in the course of a month.
Has 300 Tons on Dump.
On the Beatrice group, near the
head of Mohawk creek, in the
Lardeau, there are 300 tons of high
grade galena on the dump. This
property has been under develop,
ment during the past Jthree months
by G. Frank Beer of this city, during which time a force of twelve
men have been kept at work and
some 300 feet of development performed. A trail will be built to the
Beatrice for the purpose of rawhid-
ing the ore out.���Nelson Tribune.
This is the property located by
Frank F. Fulmer, of the Anderson
House, of this city, and which was
sold to Mr. Beer some three months
ago.

During September the imports at
Nelson were $44,162, and the exports amounted to $35,731, the
latter being almost entirely ore
charges.
The first issue of the Kootenay
Mining Standard, by D, R. Young,
of Nelson, has appeared. There is
a good field for a properly conducted
monthly of this kind.
The Dominion F.xpress company
recently opened offices at Pincher
creek, Fernie, Wardner and Cran-
brook, along the line of the Crow's
Nest Pass railway.
Nelson is growing decidedly met-
ropolitan with its several brick
blocks. They greatly improve the

Mr. C. E. Race, of the Rossland
Miner, thinks there is a good chance
for anyone with $100,000 to invest,
to start in opposition to P. Burns &
Co., the meat merchants of Kootenay. The Miner, however, should
be fair and tell also that the column
article did not come out till Burns
refused to run a $40 card in the
paper. A more intelligent idea of
the case could then be obtained by
the disinterested. Mr. Burns'
agents, by the way, in Brooklyn
and at the head office deny almost
in toto many of the statements made
by the Miner.
It has been generally supposed
that Hawaii, the new territorial
acquisition of the United States,
offered good inducements to settlers
and tradesmen of all kinds, but a
recent note of warning sent out by
the Masonic societies of that island
is to the contrary. Skilled workmen
of all classes already far exceed the
demand, and many are arriving at
Honolulu only to meet with distress.
The visit of the Emperor of Germany to Jerusalem, now being undertaken, will cost the big sum of
tight or ten million marks.    These
little jaunts of royalty are expensive
luxuries, and the poor people must
foot the bills. We could take a
trip to the Holy Land for a much
less figure, and if the Kaiser wishes
some pointers he can be accommodated.
Sir Wm. C. Van IIorne, while in
Kootenay last week, is quoted as
having said that the C. P. R. would
probably not build beyond Midway
for some time. This is to be regretted, as no one thing would so
help the Boundary section as direct
connection with the coast by rail,
instead of the roundabout route via
Revelstoke.
It was hoped that the days of
revolution and anarchy were over
for good in sunny France, but from
the reports of probable military disturbances now coming across the
water, growing out of the Dreyfus
affair, it looks as though the Gauls
would once more be divided into
two or even three parts.
The man who tries to run his
business without placing a live, interesting card in his home paper,
changing it frequently, is like the
man who tries to run his boat and
make time without the aid of steam.
It can be done, but in each case the
aid suggested is invaluable to the
progressive man. Advertising is
the motor of all business.
In this day and generation it
seems as though no public work
can be attended to without the
breath of scandal attaching to it.
The Canadian papers nowadays are
full of alleged scandals in connection with the government of the
Yukon. ���
Sir W. C. Van Horne was feted
and wined and dined wherever he
stepped on his recent tour of inspection of the C. P. R., but he did not
have time to stop in Brooklyn.
Consequently he does not know
what a good thing he missed.
It is quite an art nowadays to
secure a place in which to sleep in
Brooklyn if one waits till after
nightfall. The state of business
with the hotel keepeis is a pretty
sure index of the prosperity of a
town���new or old.
������������������������������������������������...���
THE OBSERVATORY.
It may not be generally known,
but it is nevertheless a fact, that
Sir William C. Van Horne, when
visiting West Kootenay last week,
went on a real deer hunt. It was
rather an ignominious manner, however, of meeting his end for the
gentle animal, and it came about in
this way.
��� ��� ���
When the party were sailing
down Slocan lake on the Steamer
Slocan, taking in the country, a
deer swimming in the water was
sighted near Bannock Point, south
ot Silverton. Here was a chance
for the president of the longest railway in the world, whose income is
over $5 per hour the year round,
including nights and Sundays, to
see a real deer taken, So an unsuccessful attempt was made to
lassoo the animal. Then firearms
were used and the deer was wounded, but swam to shore. It would
not do to let it get away, and a
detachment of roustabouts were
accordingly sent ashore, who chased
the deer up the hill and clubbed it
to death. Thus ended the deer hunt
of Sir William.
��� ��� ���
Now, this may be sport, but if it
is the Observer fails to find it.
However, Van can carry the antlers
home and show them around among
his tenderfoot friends as a trophy of
the game he bagged in the wilds of
Kootenay.
��� ��� ���
Brooklyn's sky pilot, Rev. John
Munro, is quietly but surely becoming one ot the most valuable men in
town, Recently at his own expense
he escorted a sick man to the Nil-
ran hospital. Later he fitted out a
woe-begone and down-in-the-heel
specimen of humanity with a suit of
clothes. Another man was provided
with a place to sleep, and incidentally  was treated to a   sample   of
muscular Christianity and soundly
thrashed by that gentleman when he
started to "do up" the preacher.
�����������
The Observer submits that a man
ol this stamp can and, as is being!
proved, will be by all odds a greater
benefit to a community than would
a man who knows the scriptures by
heart and can preach two-hour
sermons. Mr. Munro has won the
confidence and respect of all who
know him, no matter of what denomination, or whether of no
religious belief. The incidents
above referred to are but a few
samples out of many. Brooklyn is
fortunate in having such a man of
sense located here.
��� ��� ���
"Are you the man that runs the
fire escape," said a seedy-looking
character to Mr. Munro the other
day. On being assured that he was
talking to the right man, a tale of
woe was unfolded. It is needless
to say that it had attention.
��� ���.���.���
A few persons seem to doubt the
accuracy of the statement in last
week's News that 5,000 men are at
work on the construction. The
number is too large for the average
person to take it in. Any such can
verify the statement by inquiring at
the office of the contractors.

"Rev. Ball came into this office
one day last week and in a businesslike way asked the subscription
price of The Herald, and planked
down the cash like a gentleman.
That is the kind of a preacher we
like to see. He wants the news of
the town and community and is
willing to pay for it instead of dead-
beating his way. We don't belong
to his church; we have never heard
him preach, but we propose to, for
we have had lots of experience with
preachers of a different stamp."���
Cranbrook Herald.
During railway construction
Monte Carlo is likely to be a lively
place. It already glories in a shoot-
ing scrape and one or two other incidents of a frontier town. Every
line of business thrives here excepting that of a moral reform association. There is great need for such
an institution, but no encouragement to begin business.���Boundary
Creek Times.
The city of Grand Forks enjoys
the distinction of having accomplished more in the way of public
improvements than any town in the
Boundary country. While other
places have half graded streets, and
sidewalks on every other lot or so,
Grand Forks has two fine graded
streets, a couple of miles of sidewalk, and electric light and water
plant.���Grand Forks Miner.
An exchange says that some investigator has learned that President
McKinley has become a pipe smoker, that Attorney-General Griggs
chews tobacco, privately; Postmaster-General Smith smokes cigarettes;
Secretary Gage smokes cigars and
chews tobacco; Secretary Alger is
an inveterate smoker, while the
abstainers of the cabinet are Secretaries Day, Bliss and Long,
There are objections to the fairy
story of the beefeaters' champion in
Rossland. It would probably take
more than $100,000 to buck P.
Burns & Co. Within the past few
weeks this firm has placed orders
for 4,500 head of cattle, for 10,500
head of sheep, and for 6,000 hogs.
This order, which is to cover the
firm's beef, mutton and pork business during the winter, required
$350,000 to swing it. It is evident,
therefore, that the man with the
$100,000 would be a trifle short.���
Nelson Tribune.
An action for $20,000 damages,
say an exchange, has been entered
by J. J, Breslin against the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.
The plaintiff was employed in the
construction of a bridge at the
Crow's Nest Pass, and met with an
accident which necessitated the amputation of one of his legs. He
holds the company responsible for
the accident, and claims the above
mentioned amount of damages.

COMMITS SUICIDE.
A. t. Poudrler, the Surveyor, Shot
Himself.
A. L. Poudrier, well known in
Kootenay through his articles on
Alaska, has committed suicide.
Poudrier shot himself about two
weeks ago near Massett, on the
North island of the Queen Charlotte group. Walter Chapman and
Poudrier left Massett in an open
boat on Friday, the 8th, and on
Sunday the former returned with
Poudrier's remains. The unfortunate man had, soon after they went
ashore, gone off alone and shot himself in the forehead with the revolver. Death was practically instantaneous.
Poudrier was doing some survey
work. He went north on the Horsa
a few weeks ago. Several years
ago he was engaged by the Provincial Government to explore and
write-up the Cassiar and Omineca
countries, but his reports were so
unreliable that soon he sought another position. Lately he was
brought into prominence for the
glowing accounts he wrote of the
Ashcroft trail and the route to
Klondike from Spokane. Since then
he has been in "hard luck," and the
present one is the only situation he
been connected with for some time.
Lately he became despondent, and
temporary insanity was probably
blamable for the cause of his death.
It is a peculiar fact that two years
ago the brother of the deceased
suicided at Quesnelle Forks when
out on a survey trip.
BURLEY JUMPS THE TOWN.
He Left Behind Him a Number of
Unpaid Bills.
Nick Burley, the pug who met
Coolgardie Smith in a ten-round
contest at the International last
Monday night, crept quietly out of
town yesterday morning. As mementoes of his stay in Rossland, he
left behind him a large assortment
of debts due various people with
whom he had been able to run bills.
Frank White, his trainer, did not
receive a cent for his services. The
two had a quarrel over the matter
yesterday morning about 3 o'clock,
and Burley ended the argument by
punching his trainer in the jaw, and
calling the account squared thereby.
Burley got $300 as his share of the
gate money at the contest, and is
also credited with having received
as much more from outsiders for
letting the mill terminate as it did.
As he paid practically no bills, Burley got out of town with plenty of
money. He left yesterday morning
on the 8.40 train for Spokane, and
is credited with going to Montana.
���Rossland Miner.

S TAILINGS . J
The United Verde mine at Jerome,
Ariz., employs 700 men.
The quartz and placer mines of
Lemhi Co., Idaho, produced 15,000
ounces of gold in '97.
In the Rand, S. A., district the
average cost of sinking a timbered
shaft 5>'2xi8 feet, is $125 per foot.
The Montana School of Mines at
Butte, Montana, will not be opened
this fall because of a lack of funds.
Geologically speaking, "serpentine" is ordinarily decomposed granular intrusive rock, either peridotite
or pyroxene.
In the Lake Superior iron mines
ore is mined 600 feet below the surface and delivered on the cars at a
total cost of 67 cents per ton.
A "crispa" is a small bright fragment or spangle of gold, worth from
10 to 50 cents���an old Spanish term
for a miniature nugget.
In '97 Norway produced 1025
tons of copper ores with 20 per
cent of copper, some 1000 tons of
poorer copper ores, and 90,000 tons
of iion pyrities.
The amount of dividends declared
by the Bullion-Beck mine at Eureka, Utah, is $2,187,000. Those
of the Mercer mine amount to
$1,191,000.
In a single hand drilling match at
Boise, Idaho, H. Andrea made 13
inches in 15 minutes. The rock was
blue granite, full of Mica schist, and
flinty.
The Wedge mine, near Rands-
burg, Cal,, since its incorporation
in April, 1897, has paid $42,500 in
dividends. The total investment in
the mine and mill was $6,500.
The Star mine, Cherry Creek,
Nev., is now marketing smelting
ore carrying nearly 3,000 ounces per
ton in silver. A plant with a daily
150 ton capacity will soon be in operation.
The average cost per ton of ore
produced last year by the Anaconda
Copper Co. was $3.77 net. The
total cost of mining and treatment
was $7.98 per ton. The average
yield was $11.22 per ton, a profit
of $3-33-
The Australian record for shaft
sinking in '98 has been made in the
Brilliant Deep Lead, Charters
Towers���1053 feet through hard
grey granite in eleven months. The
shaft is a three-compartment, 12
feet by 4 feet in the clear.
The monthly payroll of the Le
Roi mine at Rossland, B. C, to its
employes the 10th inst. was $28000;
the monthly account for supplies
was $14,000 additional. The mine
has 285 men on its payroll and operates twenty-seven drills.
The New Sealand government is
still oflering a bonus of 4d per
pound for the production of the first
100,000 pounds weight of good
marketable quicksilver from any
mine in New Zealand. One third
of the quantity must be produced
before the 31st of March, 1900, and
the remaining two-thirds before the
31st of March, 1901.
The first message over the Canadian Pacific Railway Co.'s new
transcontinental copper telegraph
line was flashed from Montreal,
Canada, to Vancouver, B. C, last
week, a distance ot 2900 miles.
This is claimed to be the longest
land circuit in the world. In passing over this long distance the message occupied one-fifth of a second.
The Standard Oil Co. is credited
with intent to control the Butte,
Montana, copper companies, consolidation of the Anaconda, Boston
& Montana, Butte & Boston and
Montana Ore Purchasing Co., being locally but mistakenly foreshadowed. The four mentioned
companies to the 1st inst. had declared dividends aggregating $13,-
755.o0��-
An alloy closely resembling gold
is composed of copper 94 parts, antimony 6. The antimony is added
after the copper is melted; subsequently sufficient magnesium carbonate and calcium are added to
increase the spacific gravity. The
alloy looks like gold, can be hammered and soldered, and is unaffected by nitric acid. It appears tn
be particularly well adapted to the
manufacture of "gold bricks."
