MACHINERY HERE
Fourteen Air Drills Will Soon
be at Work
ON  3.000-FOOT  TUNNEL
Steam Scraper Has Also Arrived
and is Now Being Hauled to
Near Gladstone.
McLean Bros,' long looked for
14-drill air compressor, for boring
the 3000-foot tunnel, four miles
from Brooklyn, has arrived, and is
now being hauled to the scene of
operations. The plant consists of
two 80-horse power boilers, two
large air receivers and other necessary parts, and is complete in every
respect. The machinery and boilers
will be installed on this side of the
tunnel, but will be operated from
both ends, seven drills on each side
cf the mountain. A two-Inch pipe,
nearly a mile long will conduct the
air to the west end of the work.
On the east end W. A. Penny-
cook, who has had wide experience
in driving railway tunnels, will be
in charge of the work, while Sam
McLean, one of the firm of contractors, will direct Operations from
the farther side. It is estimated
that it will take about three weeks
to get the compressor plant to the
scene of operations and in full blast.
When this is done, work on the long
bore will commence in earnest, upwards of 10 feet daily being expected to be made.
At the west end a small engine
will be installed to operate a blower
for clearing the tunnel of smoke,
while a similar work will be performed on the east end by the big
plant. The plant is of the Ingersoll-
Sergent pattern and was manufactured in Montreal, the cost being
about $15,000. At each end one
drill will be used on the bench and
six on the heading. The machines
are fitted with y/2 piston and t%
inch bits, while the drills themselves
are five feet long.
STEAM SCRAPER HERE.
McLean Bros, also received their
patent sleam scraper last Thursday,
the 35 horse power boiler coming
from Seattle and the scraper, etc.,
from Victoria. This machine is to
used in the gravel hills out near
Gladstone, where McLean Bros, are
at work on their second large contract. The first wagon load of this
plant was started on its 25 mile drive
yesterday and the rest is following
as fast as possible. Jim McLean is
in chatge of that work, and will see
that the scraper gathers up its three
cubic yards of material each time
and does its work according to
schedule, using as much of the 1700
feet of Y\ inch cable as may be
necessary. The machine, it is confidently expected, will be a great
labor saver, and will thus facilitate
the work of cutting and filling on
the present sub-contract.
THE C. P. R., WILL BACK THEN.
Townsttes in Which the Road Is
Interested.
Mr. L. A. Hamilton, C. P. R.,
land commissioner, returned to
Winnipeg this week, accompanied
by Mr. W. F. Tye, chief engineer
of the Robson-Penticton branch
which is being extended into the
Boundary country. To a Free
Press reporter Mr. Hamilton stated
that while in Montreal they had decided upon the location of the principal townsites along the road.
They will be Gladstone, Cascade,
Grand Forks and Greenwood and
arrangements have been completed
whereby the company becomes in
terested in the development of the
towns.
Grand Forks is located at the
point where the north fork of Kettle river flows into the main stream.
Gladstone which is situated 24 miles
from Brooklyn will be the distributing point for the Burnt basin and
Christina lake. Cascade is situated
on the international boundary at
the foot of Christina lake, and is
well supplied with water power for
manufacturing and other purposes.
Greenwood will be an important
mining point in the Boundary country.     _^	
JOHNSON���MAGNUSON WEDDING.
Proprietor of Alliance Hotel is Receiving Congratulations.
Last Saturday John Johnson, one
of the proprietors of the Alliance
hotel was married in Nelson to an
estimable young lady, Miss Annie
Magnuson, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Robinson. The
newly married couple arrived in
Brooklyn on Monday's boat, where
they have gone to housekeeping
and are receiving congratulations
of their many friends.
Tuesday evening a dance was
given at the International hotel, at
which the bride and groom met
their friends. The dance was kept
up 'till 3 a. m., and was a most
successful affair. Music was furnished by Messrs. Webster, Williams and Walker. A fine supper
was served during the evening, and
everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Meets s Fearful Pate.
A special from Grand Forks says
that last Monday evening George
Curtis, while driving a special stage
between Grand Forks and Cascade
City, was thrown from his seat and
killed. It seems that Curtis was
driving along quietly until he came
to the foot of the large hill at Edwards' ferry, when his team suddenly shied and jerked the unfortunate man from his seat with great
force, dragging him for some distance. Another team following
close behind picked up Curtis' apparently lifeless body and brought
it to Cascade City, where medical
aid was summoned, but nothing
could be done, for he had received
a severe fracture of the skull and he
died today.
It Was Good Music.
Last Sunday evening extra music
was rendered at the church service
in Brooklyn, there being three
stringed instruments. The school
house, where services are held, was
crowded to the doors, and many
were unable to obtain entrance.
There will be extra music again at
tomorrow evening's service, and a
cordial invitation is extended to all
to attend.
Pastor Munro, himself a most accomplished musician, deserves much
credit for working up the idea,
which is one that always appeals to
the people. He intends to continue making music a feature of the
services on Sunday evenings.

HE USED AN AXE
Sebastian Deneiro Attacked by
Another Italian.
AT J. G. McLEAN'S CAMP
Victim Was Served up by the Cook
and the Other Italian is Now
Safely Behind the Bars.
Last Saturday afternoon a scrimmage took place at one of J. G.
McLean's camps, near Gladstone,
which nearly cost one son of sunny
Italy his life. He was, in fact, close
to the happy hunting grounds, and
but for the interference of several
other workmen, his troubles for this
life would be over.
Two Italians got into a quarrel
about. some trivial matter, when
John Doe (his real name not known
at this writing) began to enforce his
arguments with a sharp axe. So
well did he succeed that his victim,
Sebastian Deneiro, received a severe
cut on the head, a deep gash on the
shoulder, and he was also bitten on
the arm, as if to complete the job.
At this point in the fracas brother
workmen realized that the place was
becoming a slaughther house and
interfered. The Italians securely
bound Mr. Doe, and with cocked
revolvers marched him to Gladstone,
where he was delivered into the custody of Mr. Forrest, J. P., who took
him to Grand Forks forsafe keeping.
There being no surgeon at hand,
G. Sturgis, the cook, undertook the
job of sewing and patching up
Deneiro, the victim, and at last
accounts he was doing as well as
could be expected. But he had a
decidedly narrow escape.
THEIR LABOR WAS IN VAIN.
Railway   Navvies   Cut a Valuable
Lode���Two Prospectors Locate it.
The Rossland Leader has an in
teresting story which goes to prove
that it is wise for evervone living in
this country to possess a free miner's certificate. No one can tell
when it will mean much to him.
The tale is as follows:
It is an old expression and a true
one that "you never, know your
luck," This could not be better exemplified than by an incident which
occuned the other day���the moral
of which is, always carry a free miner's certificate in this record-breaking country,
It happened that the navvies on
the railway construction works on
the Robson-Penticton line, cut a
strong lode in excavating for the
line, at a point about half way up
Christina lake. The lode was of
promising appearance, being about
live feet wide, and was pronounced
a valuable find. Unfortunately,
however, not a man of the five had
a miner's certificate and could not
locate and record it, so they decided not to speak about it until
they saw what could be done.
They forgot, however, that a
teamster who brought up supplies
was on the spot at the time the find
was made. The teamster was a
man of few words, but of the eagle
eye fraternity. He knew a thing or
two, as subsequent developments
showed, but he could afford to wait.
On his next journey out he picked
up a couple of prospectors on the
road who were looking for new
fields and pastures green. They
got into conversation and the result
was they were both spoil up beside
the driver on the wagon.
Arrived at a point near the scene
of the discovery the prospectors
prepared to leave and for his kindness they gave the driver $2 and all
had a parting draw at the comfort
ing flask. The last pull worked the
oracle. The teamster saw they
were decent fellows and likely to
behave square and he saw his
chance.
"Have you fellows a free miner's
certificate?" he inquired.
They naturally had and answered
r.ccordingly.
"Then," he said, "I can put you
onto a good thing not half a mile
from here. Go right in and cut
your stakes and stake out a gold
mine! But listen, pards, you will
do the square thing by me?"
Being men of honor they of course
passed their words and all eagerness
and excitement they amounted the
wagon again and proceeded on to
the promised land.
The driver quickly takes them
along, and points out the outcrop
and capping, to conceal which, a
poor attempt had been made.
The prospectors, with optics
skinned by long experience, did not
hesitate long; they saw the "good
thing" and had in a brace of shakes.
Then they returned, and calmly sitting down on the capping proceeded
to deliver a discourse to the simple
navvies on the expediency of always
being prepared for the unforseen.
The navvies gazed sorrowfully on
the trio of "enterprisers" and regretted the laws of the land were so
well respected. They chewed the
cud of bitter reflection and said
nought.
Assays from the lode show it to
be worth $20 per ton and the find
is indeed a very valuable one. This
incident is perfectly true and was
related by J. P. Paxton, of Rossland, who became acquainted with
the facts while over there prospecting.     	
Died In His Chair.
An Italian named Vincarzo, who
claimed to come from Brooklyn,
was found dead in a chair in the
Kootenay hotel in Nelson last week.
He stated that he had no money
and was allowed to sit in a chair
in the hotel for a couple of nights.
The third morning he was found
dead in his chair. When the remains were searched $85 in money
was found, tied up in a handkerchief, around about the dead man's
knee. The coroner's inquest was
conducted by Dr. Arthur the following day.
IS AGAINST THE MINES.
Lapsed Certificates Cannot be Renewed After Nov. I.
It is given out that the lieutenant-
governor-in-council has rescinded
the order whereby free miners may
obtain relief from forfeiture due to
the lapse of a free miner's certificate.
The original order, which was
approved October 29,1897, provided
that by making proper affidavits and
remitting $5 to the minister of mines,
a free miner whose certificate had
expired could get a new license dating from the expiration of the previous one. By this process claims
were saved from forfeiture, unless
in the meantime they had been
restaked by some other free miner.
The new order in council, which will
go into effect on November 15,
rescinds the old regulation, and does
away with the possibility of relief in
case one's certificate expires.
Married at Revelstoke.
The Nelson Miner of last Wednesday has the following about
genial Billy McLean, brother of J.
G. McLean, the well-known railway contractor, who has three and
and a half miles of work beyond
Gladstone: "W. C. McLean the
well-known railway contractor left
yesterday for Revelstoke, where he
will be married in a few days to
Miss Annie McDonald, late of the
Phair hotel. They will spend their
honeymoon at the Halcyon Springs
before taking up their residence in

. . Between the Fashoda and the
Dreylus affairs, France seems as
though determined to make war on
somebody or something. It so
happens, however, that the British
lion will not stand any nonsense
this time, and the polite politicians
at gay Paris, wisely hesitate  about
��� taking a step that they are absolutely certain they will regret. It
looks as though the position was
similar to that of Spain before her
late war���civil strife was certain if
war had not been declared.
The closing of the office of the
agent-general of British Columbia
in London is provoking quite a little adverse comment on both sides
of the water. While the administration of the office by the Hon.
G. Vernan is acknowledged not to
have been all that could have been
desired, it is equally certain that if
conducted to the best advantage, as
it can be, such an institution can be
made to redound greatly to the
credit of this province.
Idaho needs a good sized dose of
British Columbia justice, to bring
its tnlnirjg thugs to their senses.
The recent driving out of Dan Connors from the Coeur d'Alene, on
threat of vengeance to be wreaked
on his inoffensive family, is but
another case in point. It is travesty on so-called liberty ��� it is
license.    	
If Postmaster-General Muloch,
on his contemplated visit to the
coast, will take the trouble to inquire into and improve the prompt
transmission of mails in the Kootenay, there are several thousand of
us who will rise up and bless him.
It's quite a job for William, but he
is fully equal to it.
The Nelson & Bedington railway has been built half a dozen
times this year by the Kootenay
newspapers. But as yet not a sod
or stone has been turned on the
right-of-way. It is sure to go
through, however, some time before
the er.d of 1809.
It is currently reported that Spain
is buying thousands of bugles for
her armies. She evidently believes
in tooting her own horn, but has little to say about her fine ships that
are yet in soak.
The American flag now waves
supreme over Porto Rico, and it's
dollars to dpughnuts that Cuba will
also, come under the stars and
stripes before the thing is settled.
The influences of the recent pay
day on the construction are being
felt by our merchants and they look
correspondingly happy.
Cascade City is to have a weekly
paper, the first issue of which will
appear next week and be called the
Record.

%~   THE OBSERVATORY.      S
Last Saturday the Observer had
the pleasure of witnessing the
launching of the new steel steamer
Moyie, just built by the C. P.jR., at
the Nelson shipyards. Of course
she slipped beautifully down the
well-greased ways and rode the
foaming billows amid the plaudits
of the admiring thousands and the
whistles of several locomotives and
steamers.
��� ��� ���
This makes at least 10 steamers
that the C. P. R. now has in the
Kootenay fleet, with those others
now building, one at Nakusp, the
twin of the Moyie, and a tug each
at Rosebery and Nelson. It is evident that the C. P. R. is looking
forward at an early date to a great
increase of traffic in the Kootenays,
and intends to be prepared for it.
��� ��� ���
Six hours or more to travel a distance of say 60 miles is pretty slow
traveling in these modern times.
That is what it requires to travel
from Rossland to Brooklyn and
sometimes it takes eight or ten
hours. The ride of some 40 miles
from Rossland to Robson is allowed
three mortal hours���and if you do
not like it you can walk. Then
comes the one to four hours at Robson while the steamer backsjand fills
and fools around and loads and
unloads freight, until patience almost
ceases to be a virtue. The man
who arranged that schedule should
certainly be awarded a leather medal.
Such brilliancy should not be overlooked or hid under a bushel. A
number of people have spoken feelingly to the Observer about this
execrable arrangement.
��� ��� ���
The continued large amount of
travel hereabouts is the cause of
remark by more than one observant
individual. When the big railway
contract was in its incipient stages,
it was to be expected, but now that
the work is well under way the case
is different. It is evidence that this
part of the country is coming to be
recognized as one of no small importance both now and in the future.
HI
On Wednesday's boat at Robson
was. au assemblage of men in the
public eye not often seen. Of course,
there was the usual full complement
of railway and steamboat officials���
like the poor of holy writ they are
always with us. Among the others
were W. F. Tye, chief engineer of
the Columbia & Western, and John
F. Stevens, engineer for Mann,
Foley Bros, and Larson. The usual
number of contractors were there,
including Messrs. Boomer and McDonnell. Last, but not least, were
the members of the fourth estate,
including Bob Lowry, of the New
Denver Ledge, Editor Bogle of the
Rossland Leader and the Observer.
And this was but an average day.
��� ��� ���
Some few people, with ideas dating before the flood, still insist that
there is no real value in advertising.
Such a merchant, however, shows
the falsity of his position by advertising as fast and as persistently as
his tongue can wag, when ever a
prospective customer does darken
his doors, How much simpler and
more effective for him to sing his
little song to 500 or 1,000 persons
at once through his local paper. Besides the newspaper ad works while
he is asleep. There's a moral in
this, that the live, hustling business
man will quickly find and use to his
advantage.
��� ��� ���
Another case. The parson did
not have full houses on Sunday
evenings, when he thought he should
have them. So, after preparing an
extra good programme, he sees to
it that The News gives publication
to the fact. What was the result?
Nothing more or less than acrowded
house- First have a good thing;
then advertise it in a breezy, brief
manner, and the people will, do the
rest. This is the observation also
the experience of the Observer, who
has made a study of the subject for
the last 15 years.
��� * *
There is one man in Brooklyn
who can testify to the effectiveness
of a certain brand of pills, well
known in patent medicine circles.
While under the influence of some
of Seagram's or Walker's choicest
brand, he bought the pills in question and put them in his pocket.
When sobered up he thoughtlessly
began eating them, thinking he was
enjoying choice confectionery, and
so devoured the lot. Inasmuch as'
one pill is a good strong dose for
any man, the result can better be
imagined than described. Hereafter
he will be more particular.

the property being a great mine.

ARE ON BULL DOG
More Promising Copper Claims
to be Sold.
THE STEM WINDER GROUP
Mountain Chief Officials From
RoHHland Make a Visit to the
Property���Greatly Pleased.
Another mining deal of considerable importance was all but closed
this week for another Bull Dog
mountain copper property that has
a fine showing. The claims ir. ques.
tion, the Stemwinder and Yankee
Boy, adjoin the Mountain Chief,
being located farther up the hill,
and undoubtedly have the same
ledge as that now well known property. Thomas. Abnel, of Nakusp,
and W. C. Knapp, of Brooklyn, are
the owners, and of course have a
good opinion of the claims, which
indeed seems quite justified.
This week Tuesday Mr. McCut-
cheon, of Rossland, who represents
a syndicate with ample capital, came
to Brooklyn, and in company with
Mr. Knapp made a trip to the
property, up on Dog Creek. Mr.
McCutcheon is a conservative man,
but expressed himself as well pleased
with the appearance of the claims,
and said the ledge was undoubtedly
there. It is more than probable
that a deal will be made for the
property at an early date. Thus are
the excellent copper claims on Bull
Dog mountain being snapped up,
one by one.
MOUNTAIN CHIEF IMPROVING.
Bull Dog Property Exceeding the
Expectations.
If anyone is skeptical as to whether Brooklyn has a mine at its very
doors or not, let him inspect
the magnificent samples of peacock
copper ore that have been on view
in the window of the Brooklyn post-
office for the last week. He will
then be convinced, even against his
will, that railway building is not
Brooklyn's only tangible resource.
The work that has been going on
at the Mountain Chief for some
time is making the property look
better with every shot put in, and
has made the stockholders feel correspondingly happier.
Manager Bogle, of Rossland, was
up this week inspecting the work
already done, and to a News man
he expressed himself in no unmeasured terms regarding the appearance
of this now famous Bull Dog copper
property. He will arrange shortly
to begin development on a more extensive scale. The workmen have
been cutting across the ledge, which
is found to be at least 20 feet wide
���a most remarkable showing. All
those now interested in the claim
are exceedingly jubilant at the outlook, and are trying to decide
whether they will spend their dividends on a winter in Italy or in
Florida.
With Mr. Bogle on the trip of
inspection to the property this week
were Mayor Wallace, T. Prest. Jus.
D. Sword, M. E., VV. Clayton
Miller, M. E., J. S. Clute and Mike
Burns. They all feel more firmly
convinced that the Mountain Chief
will startle the mining world in a
comparatively short time. It is the
intention to let a contract to sink a
shaft 100 feet.
ROSSLAND   STOCK.
Reports of Local Markets During
the Past Week.
The Rossland stock market was
livelier during the past week than it
was the previous week, says the
Rossland Miner, and it promises to
be still more active during the coming week. The stock market is
made up of flurries and lulls, and
just because the latter occur with
accustomed regularity is no reason
why some should think the market
is gone forever, as was predicted by
a few during the recent collapse.
Some of the leading stocks dropped
off a few points while others advanced a good many points, and it
looks as though the beginning of a
rise all along the line had been
made.
The feature of the week was the
flurry in Cariboos (Camp McKinney)
which rose from 70 cents to $1.12
since Friday last. The company
was formerly an American company,
with headquarters at Spokane. It
has changed into a Canadian corporation with the principal office at
Toronto, and the company is a
strong and energetic one. It is its
intention to increase the output and
to push work generally so that
larger dividends than heretofore may
be paid. This accounts for the increase in the price of the shares.
The largest block of these shares
that changed hands locally was
8,000 shares, which on Tuesday
sold for 95 cents.
Monte Christoes fell from 15 cents
to i2}4 and rallied to 13 during the
week. One block of 15,000 shares
was disposed of and the movement
was very large in these shares. This
was especially the case when they
were down to ,2}i cents.
Deer Parks held their own pretty
well during the week, but declined
a few points.    They fell from 21 to
19 and rallied and are now quotable
at from 19 to 20 cents. There is
certain to be a sharp upraise in these
shares as soon as the drift now being run on the 300-foot level encounters the pay streak that was
disclosed on the 200-foot level. The
efforts of the syndicate that is buying in this stock to depress it so far
has not been very successful. Recent
developments in the bottom of the
shaft justify the belief that this time
next week it will be shown that the
drift will not have to be run as far
as expected in order to reach the
ore body.
Grand Prizes are the freest sellers
of cheap'stocks. One block of
25,000 shares and several smaller
parcels were sold early in the week.
The price of Grand Prizes ranges
from 4 to 5 cents.
Iron Colts are good sellers at from
9 to 10 cents.
Iron Horses sold freely during the
week at 18 cents. The Iron Horse
company is erecting its ore house
and grading the site for its compressor plant. The double compartment shaft has reached a depth of
46 feet. The fact that the work is
progressing with such earnestness
has caused quite a local demand for
the shares.
There has been an enlarged local
demand for the White Bears and
thev sold at from 7 to 7)4 cents.
The outlook in the White Bear was
never more promising, and if the
expectations of those most interested
in the property' are realized it will
not be long before these shares will
be selling for a much higher price
than at present.
Novelties are holding their own
and the property of the company is
reported to be looking well. These
shares are selling for 4)2 cents,
There is considerable life in Commanders and they sell at 13 cents.
Giants are selling at from 6^ to
7 cents.
There is a home demand springing up for Sarah Lees, one of the
Ymir group. Work has been resumed on this property and it evidently has a promising future.
Fairmounts are going off rapidly
at 6 cents. One block of 15,000
shares was sold during the week.
Monarchs arc in good demand at
7 cents, which is due to the good
reports that continue to come from
that property.
Salmo Cons, continue to be in demand and are quoted at 15 cents.
The price is shortly to be raised to
20 cents, and the encouraging condition of the properties of the company justify this advance.
Republic stocks have been in excellent demand during the past
week. This was especially the case
with Jim Blaines, San Polls and Princess Mauds. The latter shares advanced from 3J4 to 8 cents and Jim
Blaines from 32 to 40 cents.
Robert J affrev, president of the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company,
was in Rossland this week, and
stated that his company is now
ready to deliver from 300 to 400
tons of coal daily. Fifty coke ovens
are being built, but until the Crow's
Nest line is in shape no effort to
market coke in this country will be
made.
