IT'S A
Brooklyn Owner Tells Story
of Beatrice Mine.
IS BONDED FOR $150,000
.1
Phenomenal Galea. Property
Hardly a Year Discovered BMa
Pair to Prove a Dividend
Payer.
One of Brooklyn's citizens is a
part owner in one of the richest
silver mines in the Lardeau���the
Beatrice group, located 12 miles
from Thompson's Landing on Trout
lake at the headwaters of Mohawk
creek. The story of the discovery
is an interesting one and is another
evidence of what pluck and energy
can accomplish in the wonderful
Kootenays.
Frank F. Fullmer, now associated with Mrs. H. Y. Anderson in
the hotel business here, with His
partner, joe Boucher, were prospecting in the Trout Lake district
in the spring 01�� 1897 when they
made the truly remarkable silver
discovery which has since been the
talk of the mining world. The Beatrice was located June 34, 1897,
and it took seven days to cut. and-
plant the location stakes, so severe'
was the weather and so far was the
claim located above timber fin*.
But the showing was marvelous. A
few hours work revealed a ledge of
solid galena $% feet wide, assay-'
ing no ounces in silver and 74 per
cent. lead. Elated with their great
strike, Fullmer and Boucher lost no
time in recording it, not saying
much about it.
But so good a thing could not
long remain hid, and this year the
property was visited by mining experts, who were greatly surprised
at the rich showing. The result
was that last month the group, consisting of the Beatrice, Folsom and
Esmond were bonded to Frank
Beer, of Nelson for $150,000. The
first payment will be due September 1st, and balance extend over a
period of one year.
Mr. Beer is a capitalist from
Charlottetown, P. E. L, and he
evidently means business, for he
has gone to work already in a systematic manner to develop the
property. Thus far he has sunk a
shaft on the lead some 37 feet, the
bottom of which has eight feet of
solid galena ore, running an average of $118 to the ton in silver and
lead. Preparations are being made
to work the mine on an extensive
scale, and cabins, blacksmith shop,
ore houses, etc., have been constructed in a substantial manner.
At present 18 men are at work under Frank Fitzgerald as superintendent, au old miner of wide experience. As soon as they can be
worked, a larger force will be put
on.
The lead on the Beatrice is a
true fissure vein, and as yef only
the foot wall has been reached.
Drifting will be done at once either
way at the bottom of the shaft, to
determine, if possible, the width
and extent of this phenomenal vein.
There are already 250 tons of fine
shipping ore on the dump, and as
there is a good trail and wagon
road to Trout lake, it will be a
comparatively easy matter to ship
to the smelter, Mr. Beer will undoubtedly take a fortune out of the
mine, and Mr. Fullmer's many
friends in Brooklyn are congratulating him on his good fortune in
the matter.
Married la Nelaoa.
John Henry McMannus, one of the
proprietors of the International hotel, has been looking particularly
happy for the last several days, and
the cause was not far t<J seek. He
was married by Rev. Robert Frew,
Nelson, to Miss Selma A. Andreen,
a most estimable young lady. The
ceremony was performed in Nelson
and the happy couple left at once
for Brooklyn. Mac is now receiving the hearty congratulations of
his host of friends and with his
blushing bride will, of course, make
his home here.

I CONSTRUCTION NOTES.   |
SooetaKftsaKfta&ssAKfta&eeeS
The tote road gang expect to
reach the lake the 1st.
Cross-sectioning has been completed in spots for so miles out.
Jack O'Leary now has 120 men at
work, the camp being at Shield's
Landing.
Forest fires have been raging
near the first tunnel this week, but
so far no material delay has been
caused.
Dr. Ewing, the physician and
surgeon to the contractors, made a
trip to the end of the tote road
Wednesday on professional business.
J. G. McLean & Co., who are
now getting camps established at
their work, 26 miles out, have 60
men at work and as usual are looking for more.
Contractor Burns, of Burns ft
Jordan, who have a mile and a half
contract at No. 8 camp, says there
are now 150 men at work and are
still coming, but he needs too more
Contractor Vernon W. Smith
was up from Camp No. E. Wednesday and reports good progress on
his work. His complement of men
is now full, there being 100 employed.
McLean Bros, are building another tote road around the switchback, at the site of the tunnel, work
on the switchback grade having
rendered the present tote road almost impassable.
The switchback, under construction by McLean Bros., four
miles out, is nearly completed to
the summit. A. C. McLean has
gone to Kamloops to secure horses
for his second contract further out.
E. F. Burns came in Thursday
from his new camp, 25 miles out on
the tote road. He has about too
men employed, with many coming
in daily. His contract consists of
two miles of right of way, which is
now well started. .
The tote road gang under Contractor Brown, is pushing right
through to Christina lake with all
possible speed. From there the
lake will be used for transporting
merchandise as much as possible.
Over a too men are employed.
Paymaster Woodman began issuing his monthly pay checks at the
office on the 20th and on Tuesday
he started out along the line with
his useful check book. Report has
it that he succeeded in making
nearly every one happy he met.
Opera House Opeaed.
Monday evening the new Brooklyn opera house opened under the
management of D. M. Crowley.
The cyclorama of the Spanish-
American war was presented, consisting of many excellent views of
Cuba and other foreign countries.
Mr, Harrison appeared in specialties and Mr. and Mrs. Walter
Knapp rendered excellent music on
the piano and violin. The second
evening everything was in smooth
working order, and the acetylene
gas plant did excellent service.
This Saturday evening there will
be an entire change of program and
several artists are scheduled to appear who will doubtless receive a
welcome from the Brooklyn public,
HAVE 2,000 MEN
Above That Number Now on the
Construction.
PAY ROLL WAS 165,000
Porter Bro.., McArthur ft Roberta Secure the Bridge Work
For the Entire Line.
There are now over 2,000 men on
the payroll of the contractors for
the Robson-Pentictoo branch of the
Columbia ft Western road, now
building to Midway, and more are
coming in every day. In fact, so
far as established, every camp with
two or three exceptions has all the
men needed. But many more
camps will doubtless be established.
Quite a number of laborers have
foolishly rushed out to the front,
lor some unknown reason, with the
result that the work is not ready
for them yet.
In general, good progress is being made'by the serveral sub-contractors on their various contracts,
and they are bending every energy
to completing as fast as possible,
in order to push on and secure new
work.
During the week Paymaster
Woodman has made the rounds of
the various camps and has succeeded in finding willing recipients
for between $25,000 and $30,000.
Including what had been paid out
.during the ' month the payroll
amounted to about $65,000. This,
of course, will be materially increased as the force grows. During
the next month at least a thousand
additional men are expected to arrive and be at once put to work.
There has hardly been time yet for
good effects of pay day to be felt in
town, although a number of checks
have already drifted in.
J. W. Stevens, superintendent
for the contractors, has been to
Cascade City this week, arranging
to ship in some of the heavy supplies, such as hay and oats, from
Marcus or Bossburg, so that work
can be pushed this way from that
point to some extent.
Porter Bros., McArthur & Robert, have taken over the contract
of Matthews & Keith for the bridges
along the line. This was neces-
sitaed by the untimely death of Mr,
Matthews, caused by a railway accident in Minnesota.
THE   PONY   WAS   "GENTLE."
But It Landed the Boa. or the Road
Ju.t th. Same.
As a bronco buster William Winters, the contractor, is not a success, says a Butte paper. There is
nothing, however, that Winters will
not tackle, forked lightning and fire
works being two especial pet hobbies of4his, but once in a while he
encounters something he cannot
manage. He had a little experience
in this line a few days since. About
six weeks ago Mr. Winters went to
Rossland, B. C, where his firm has
a contract for grading a railroad
bed. He took with him his family,
consisting of his wife and two or
three children. One of his children
is a boy old enough to steer an easy
going horse, but he cannot pilot a
plug that kicks a hole in the atmosphere at every jump. The boy
wanted a pet horse, one of that
class of little animals that jog along
without even so much as a throwing back of its ears at the crack of
a cannon. Winters bought one and
the man who sold him threw in a
written guarantee and a bale of hay
that the animal was as gentle as a
noonday zephyr. He looked all
light.
On the day the deal was mad.
the boy saddled the pony and started for the grade with the firm's
bookkeeper. When about a half a
mile from town the pony was overcome with a streak of "gentleness"
and threw the boy over its head.
The boy was game and ascended to
the hurricane deck for a second
round. He got it, the horse throwing him again in less than a minute.
Winters, himself, weighs 230
pounds and believing that with such
a handicap the little, insignificant
plug could not accomplish much in
the way of bucking, volunteered his
services as a trainer. He called for
the pony saying he would "fix it,"
and the boy promptly turned it over
to him. The boss of the grade
pulled his hat down a notch or two
and straddled the animal with the
ease and dignity of a major general.
The horse went along all right until
it came to a muddy place in the
road and then it was all off with the
contractor. Throwing back its ears,
it lowered its head and elevated its
rear feet with such alacrity and determination that the 230 pound boss
shot up in the air about four feet
and came down in the center of the
road. Fortunately he landed in a
soft spot and was not injured. Unlike the boy he refused to continue
an attempt to ride the animal, but
watched his chance and traded it
for a dog.
AJHBBICAN SIBL HAY BULB INDIA
George N. Canon  Likely to Be Appointed the Viewer.
Before the year ends a Chicago
girl may be sitting on the most
magnificent throne in the world,
assisting in ruling the destinies of
the most densely populated country
on earth. In plain words, the brilliant young woman who was Mary
Leiter of Chicago, now the wife of
George N. Curzon, will probably be
Vicereine of India.
Lord Elgin retires next November
as Viceroy. The office is the grandest appointive position under the
British government. His successor
will be one of three men: Lord
Ballour of Burleigh, now secretary
of state for Scotland, the Earl of
Jersey, who held many diplomatic
posts, or Curzon, who is under secretary of state for foreign affairs
and Salisbury's right hand man.
Predictions are freely made that
Curzon will be appointed. He is
thirty-nine and has had a brilliant
career. The most remarkable feature of the situation, however, is
that his American wife will be one
of the strongest reasons for appointing him. It will testily in the highest possible way England's regard
for an Anglo-Saxon alliance. It
would be the finest compliment the
English nation could pay America.
This fact is seriously taken into
consideration by Queen Victoria
and the Ministry.
The court of Calcutta and Simla
is lar more magnificent than that of
St. James or any other European
power. The Viceroy and Vicereine
rank as imperial soveieigns to
countless millions of people in the
far east. The Vicereine is a modern Queen of Sheba. In reality she
bows to but one other woman-
Queen Victoria,
The Viceroy's actual stipend is
20,000 rupees a month; his allowance countless. The pay of the
Viceroy is fifteen times greater than
the pay of a Prime Misister in England. The Viceroy's sway extends
from the shores of Arabia to the
borders of western China, and he
rules over 300,000,000 men. The
Viceroy rushes across his vast dominions in a private train which is
nothing more or less than a sumptuously appointed palace.
Curzon's appointment would be
most popular with the natives.

Once again the clouds of war are
beginning to gather in the Orient,
and it appears as if a terrible conflict between Russia and Great Britain was inevitable. Gradually but
surely the Russian bear has been
(limbing down the Pacific slope and
obtaining newer and more valuable
consessions from the Chinese government. All of which, of course,
! is anything but pleasing to Lord
Salisbury. The latter has called a
halt to Russian aggression in China and the powers as well as the
rest of the world are looking on to
see whether England's premier will
back down again or force the issue.
In the latter case, which is confidently expected in many quarters to
come, the greatest conflict of the
century will result. Just how the
powers of Europe would line up in
such an event it is not easy to foresee, but one thing is certain and
that is that Great Britain can count
upon the United States as a base of
supplies, if not as an active ally.
With its new acquisitions in the far
east our American cousins cannot
help taking an interest in the Orient and most assuredly will do so.

POSTOFFICE FOR BROOKLYN.
The ways of the Dominion postal department are past comprehension. At least, that is the reasonable conclusion arrived at by the
majority of the residents of this
town, Brooklyn is now over two
months old, and has in the neighborhood of 1500 persons receiving
mail here regularly. Vet this large
numberof people arc dependent on
the kindly offices of Townsite
Owner Parker lor such service in
this line as can be had.
It is a disgrace to the postoffice
department that such a condition
of things is allowed to exist. Due
notice has been given and the exact
state of affairs has been known for
some time to Inspector E. H,
Fletcher. However, it seems that
Mr. Bostock must first be consulted
or advised.
Notwithstanding all the annoyance and vexation incident to the
present unsatisfactory condition of
postal service here, the News is in
a position to state that arrangements are now being made to establish a postoffice here, and before the next issue, we hope to be
able to make a definite announcement in this matter- It will be a
great relief to every business man
The report comes that the la
dian mints are really to be opened
once more to the coinage of silver.
If the information is reliable, it will
be the best news received in the
Kootenay country this year. No
one other thing would give such an
impetus to mining in this part of
Canada. The world cannot get
along without plenty of the white
metal in circulation as money. The
sooner this fact is recognized the
better for one and all.
The mineral possibilities of the
territory surrounding Brooklyn are
exceedingly promising. While it
is not generally known, it ii nevertheless a fact, and the day is not
far distant when the present- copper, gold and silver prospects will
become good paying mines. Those
who pin their faith to this, and exemplify by work backed by brains
and capital, stand as good chance
of getting satisfactory returns as
any district in British Columbia.
One good pay day for the Rob-
son-Penticton railway construction
force has come and gone and Brooklyn has already begun to feel its
beneficent effects. The force of
men is being steadily increased, and
as a consequence the payroll next
month will be even larger and the
benefit correspondingly greater.
Mr, Semi.in has been called upon
to form a cabinet and has made a
success of the attempt, Mr. Beaven had to give it up, and of course
young Mr. Mclnnes does not get
the fat job of attorney general. That
plum has fallen to Mr. Martin.
The sale of the Center Star mine
at Rossland for $2,000,000 cash to
the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate on a cash basis, was a great
thing for busy Rossland. It also
helps the entire province.
Hotels and townsites are springing up along the line from Brooklyn
to Cascade City and many of our
citizens are interested in them.
There will be a few permanent points
among them.
Expert News Stealing.
The Province, of Vancouver, is a
brilliant paper in same respects since
it came out as a daily. In copying
our mining news without credit it
makesus feel proud. It costs US plen
ty of money and labor to gather the
news of the Slocan and nothing
thrills us more than to see it reproduced in a great daily without any
reference to the paper that gave it
birth. We have great admiration for the Province owing to the
wholesale manner ia which it does
its work. It does not take two or
three little items but the entire
works. It does its work like the
noble and brave road agent, and we
take off our hat to the genius who
edits its mining news with such
skill and scissors ���New Denver
Ledge.
Right you are, Brother Lowery.
There certainly is nothing small
about the mining editor, as any. issue of the paper will show.

I     THE OBSERVATORY.
Competition is said to be the life
of trade. Be that as it may, it certainly gives more zest to it for the
time being. This is being illus
tratcl just now by the placing the
Illicilliwaet on the run between
Robson and Br oklyn and the
intermediate points. The little
steam yachts Oriole and Myrtle B.
have been on this run for a month
or more and have been doing some
business between the different construction camps along the lake.
Now there is a lively competition
between the three boats for bus<
iness and interesting brushes are
an almost daily occurence.
��� ������ .
"The Illicilliwaet has probably
paid better for the amount of money
invested than any other boat on the
lakes," said Captain Hughes of that
little craft to the Observer. "She's
not very pretty nor very large,"
continued the captain, "but she Is
of such light draft that she can almost go through a heavy mountain
dew. The boat draws only ten
inches so that at low water she is
strictly in it, especially when her
hill-climbing capability is remembered. The Illicilliwaet is doing quite
a business already on the new run.
��� ������
A well known contractor was
heard inquiring a few days ago by
the Observer if he could not hire
Chinese on his work and pay the
fine for which he would be liable.
Without going into the merits of
the Chinese question, it is safe to
say that nothing of the kind would
be tolerated here. It is bad enough
to have some classes of labor now
seemingly necessary, without resorting to coolies. Mr. Parker, the
townsite owner, has had the sign
"No Chinese need land" in front of
the wharf since the existence of
Brooklyn began and he has been
commended on all sides for the
stand he has taken. He will undoubtedly be supported by the citizens in this move and it is to be
hoped that the temporary shortage
of help will not tempt sub-contractors to think of opening up in this
section the much-vexed Chinese
question.
Observor.
The Urowlnt Wee*.
The day of the Canadian west is
coming at last. There can be no
mistake as to the meaning of the
reports from every quarter of the
west regarding the development
now in progress. The splendid advertisement obtained by Canada
through the jubilee celebration and
the gold discoveries have undoubtedly been a factor in bringing about
a rush to the west. A far more important factor has been the excellent reports sent home to Europe,
to the United States and eastern
Canada by the settlers on the plains
A contented settler is the best of all
immigration agents, and the west
fortunately today is the' most prosperous section of the Dominion.
The rapid development of the west
will bring with it new problems and
new responsibilites. The sceptre
of political power will pass from the
older provinces to the people of the
west; It is therefore of the utmost
importance now in the infirmative
period that'alt in authority, all 1 in
places of influence, should assist in
the preservation of high social, po*
litical and commercial ideas in the
newer districts of the Dominion.
The sowing of churches, schools,
good newspapers, sound financial
institutions and sober commercial
methods in the west will be followed by a crop of national strength
and solidity that will be most gratifying to those who aid in the work.

"In the fall of 1863," says the
Boston Transcript, "when the war
department authorized the formation
of negro regiments in eastern Tennessee, Shafter was commissioned
colonel of one organized at Mur-
freesboro, although General George
H. Thomas declined to recognize the
formation. Within four months
Shafter had taught every negro under him how to read and write, and
he drilled the organization until it
was the show regiment at Nashville
The regiment distinguished itself at
the battle of Nashville."

Hossliiud'a  Ureal  Enterprise--Larger
thau the Sutra Tuuuel.
J. B. McArthur, of Rossland, who
is one of the chief promoters of the
Red Mountain Tunnel, has gone
east in connection with that enterprise. Interested with Mr. McArthur, says the Rossland Miner, in
the company is Charles R. Hosmer,
the millionaire manager of the Canadian Pacific railway's telegraph
lines, who is one of the heavy in-
vestc rs in the West Kootenay Power and Light company and in the
Monte Cristo, the Virginia and Center Star companies. H. S. Holt,
also of Montreal, who is one of the
b.'M known railway men of the Dominion, is the third member of the
group, which in April last was incorporated under the name of the
Red Mountain Tunnel Company,
limited, with power to construct the
tunnel.
The project is perhaps the most
vast that has yet been brought
forth in connection with the camp.
It contemplates the construction of
a tunnel some five miles long, starting from the Columbia river at a
point above Trail, and ending underneath the California mineral
claim, west of the town. The tunnel will be adapted not only to drain
the mines of the camp, but it will
also ventilate them, furnish them
with light and power and afford
them an economical means of extracting their ore. It is one of the
most gigantic undertakings in the
world, and in size would be even
longer than the Sutro tunnel in Nevada. Owing to the hardness of
the rock in this district, the cost of
the enterprise would be even greater proportionately, than that of the
tunnel on the Comstock.
A  BIG  TUNNEL.
A Bis Hoi. Through the mountain to
tare Climbing.
Among other great things within
its confines, West Kootenay will
have a 3000 foot tunnel, one ot the
longest on the continent and the
longest tunnel in the Dominion for
one driven through solid rock. The
tunnel is located on the Columbia
& Western railway, now a part of
the Canadian Pacific system, about
three miles from Brooklyn, B. C,
and at an altitude of about 2000
feet above the Columbia river. Its
dimensions are 3000 feet long, ai
feet high and 16 feet in width, and
it will require the excavation of
about 38,000 cubic yards or 85,000
tons of syenite which is the prevailing rock of the mountain. It will
take about ten months to drive this
tunnel although the other portion of
the line will be completed before
that time. During the driving of
the tunnel, trains will be transported over the divide by the means of
a series of ten switchbacks which
will be abandoned when the tunnel
is completed. McLean Bros, have
the contract anH have purchased
a large plant, consisting of two
large compressors, 14 air drills,
boilers, pipe line, etc., the cost of
which when installed will be about
$22,000. The tunnel will be driven
from both ends and the driving
should progress at the rate of ten to
twelve feet per day.
WONDKHPI'L Liqi ID AIR.
How II CD Be  Used  to Benelll Man
and Hla Inventions*
In a little laboratory in New York
city a new force has been harnessed
and added to those at the command
of man. It is liquid air, long
dreamed of by man, but never
brought so near to the point of
commercial utility as it has recently
been brought by Charles E. Tripler
after experimental research covering a period of ten or more years.
To most persons "liquid air" sounds
anomalous, but as Mr. Tripler
points out, there is no such thing
in nature's laboratory as an absolute
gas or liquid or solid. Liquids, under certain conditions, become solids; solids become liquids; liquids
become gasses. Why should not
gasses become liquids? Mr, Tripler
has made liquid air by means of an
apparatus which takes the heat out
of the mortal air and creates the
most intense cold. In an article in
the Cosmopolitan he explains:
"With steam power and a com-1 <
pressor at the beginning, air is
forced into the apparatus which
contains coils, copper pipes and peculiar valves, and the temperature
of the air is so reduced that in fifteen minutes from the time the compressor starts, liquid air is pouring
out of the faucet. This liquid is
then passed into another apparatus
to produce a still more intense cold,
until such a point is reached that
the external air, rushing in by the
inlet pipe by its natural pressure to
fill the vacuum caused by the condensation, itself becomes liquified.
Each cubic foot of the liquid represents nearly 800 cubic feet of ordinary air, and in its expansion as it
returns to its gasseous state lies a
power of the highest efficiency. Its
temperature is about 312 degrees
below zere, Fahrenheit."
Liquid air, when not exposed to
the atmosphere, looks like pure
water. Left in an open vessel, it
absorbs the heat of the atmosphere
and boils vigorously, the vessel in
the meantime becoming coated with
frost. With a few precautions it
may easily be transported and kept
for 36 hours or more. It can be
dipped up with a tin cup and poured
into almost any sort of dish, like so
much water. The cold, however,
is so intense, that if the cup be
dropped, it will be broken like
glassware. Ice dropped into the
liquid causes it to boil until the ice
is cooled. The boiling point at ordinary atmospheric pressure is 191
degrees Centigrade or 320 degree.
Fahrenheit. As the boiling point
of nitrogen is more than 10 below
that of oxygen, it is found that it
boils out first, and by a careful control ot the evaporation the liquid
oxygen may be retained separate;
this process, therefore, affording a
means of obtaining oxygen for the
many purposes for which it is required in the arts.
The refrigerative phenomena exhibited were numerous and interesting. An egg placed in a tumbler
of the liquid caused it to boil furiously. When the egg was finally
'cooked" or cooled to the temperature of the air, it was taken out and
struck with a hammer, flying into
the finest fragments! Tin became
as brittle as glas, while copper and
platinum were not affected in this
way. Mercury was frozen so that
it was used to drive a nail in a
board. Cotton saturated with the
liquid oxygen exploded and burned
brilliantly.
Put into every day life the utilization of liquid air means the virtual
abolition of the steam engine, the
attainment of 35 to 40 knots in the
speed of battle ships and torpedo
boats, the constant coolness of guns
in action, the tryumph of the submarine boat, the safety of troops in
lever ridden countries, a new curative agent in medicine and the abo-
of excessive heat. Says Mr. Tripler: "If one of our battle ships installed the small plant necessary for
tli��������� manufacture of liquid air and
useu the resultant compressed air in
conjunction with the steam the ship
would be able to keep away from a
collier for the best part of a year,
and its speed would be increased by
at least eight knots. It is for ordinance experts to utalize it in projec-
ties and in guns. Much of the time
