Vol. I.
No. 52.
Offcers for One and Machinery for
the Other.
It Is Expected that Both Will Be Under Active Development the Coming Winter���
Building a Road.
Al. Stewart, superintendent of
tile Cannonball group, on Christina
lake, returned Wednesday from
Rossland, whither he had gone to
consult with the officials of the
company with regard to installing
pumping and hoisting machinery
on the property. Mr. Stewart
brought five men back with him to
resume work.
F. P. Buck, of Sherbrooke, Que.,
director and vice-president of the
company, was in Rossland this
week, conferring with President A.
S. Goodeve and manager R. Dalby
Morkill, jr. As a result a No. 5
Northey pump, together with a
steam hoisting apparatus, was ordered of James D. Sword, of Rossland, and is expected to be on the
grounds in about ten days. Iu the
meantime the men are at work
building a wagon road to the railroad track, a distance of three
miles, so that the machinery can
be hauled to the property as soon
as it arrives.
Since about July 1st of this year,
work has been vigorously prosecuted 011 the Cannonball claim, resulting in a 90-foot shaft, from which
the workmen were driven a few
days ago by water. Some surface
exploring was also done. The Cannonball group is located on the east
shoreof Christina lake, about seven
miles from Cascade, and is one of
the oldest locations in this section
of country. It has always been
thought well of by prospectors, and
with the systematic development
work now being accomplished, will
doubtless prove to be all that its
owners hope. Mr. Buck is much
pleased with the result of his investment thus far.
Victoria Officers Choien.
Wednesday a meeting was held
in Cascade of those interested in
the Victoria Gtild and Copper Mining Co., Ltd., of English Point, for
the election of officers, with the
.following result: President, Prank
R. Starkey; Vice-President, D. C.
Beach; Secretary-Treasurer, Albert
D. Starkey; directors, Messrs.
Starkey, Beach, Spellman, Starkey
and Gay.
In conversation with a Record
representative, Mr. Starkey stated
that he was more than pleased
with the appearance of the Victoria
group at the present time, and that
as -soon as contemplated arrangements were completed, development
of the property would be undertaken and prosecuted uninterruptedly from that time on The
ledge is an immense one and has
attracted the admiration of every
mining engineer who has had the
good fortune to examine it.
Like a number of other promising claims in this vicinity, the
Victoria iB located on tbe mineral
belt lying on the east shore of
Christina lake, which is being
proved to be of an exceedingly
valuable character. The ore, in
most cases, is a copper sulphide or
chalcopyrite. The ledges are large
and well defined, and give promise
of having several dividend-payers
in the near future.
A Strong Ledge on the Ennismore.
A. J. Littlejohn, who is acting as
general superintendent of the several mining companies controlled
by Messrs. Ouimette and Saucier,
recently visited the Ennismore
property in the Burnt Basin section, which is being operated by the
Avon Mining company. He reports
that two ieads, one of which is three
feet in width, have been found on
the surface of the Avon. The larger
of these leads from its strike and
dip, is thought to be the ledge of the
Mother Lode, the adjoining property. A tunnel has been started
which will tap this ledge at a depth
of 100 feet. The management expect when this tunnel reaches the
ledge to have an announcement to
make which will be of considerable
importance to the stockholders.
Hon. F. Carter-Cotton Visited Boundary
Say the Oovernment Will Spend a Large
Amount  Here  Next Year  in
Public Improvements.
Hon. F. Carter-Cotton, editor of
the Vancouver News-Advertiser,
and who also holds the positions of
Minister of Lands and Works and
Minister of Finance, under the
provincial government, was in the
Boundary country this week. The
trip was taken to familiarize himself with the condition and needs
of this growing section, that the
government might deal with it
more intelligently. He denied that
it had any political significance
In conversation with a Record
representative Mr. Cotton stated
that the government proposed to
spend a good deal of money on
roads and trails in the Boundary
country next spring, as he could
see that it would bea wise expenditure in this fast-developing district.
"Do you think the government
will hold together in January, after
the legislature meets?" he was
"Certainly, I do," was the reply.
"All this talk about dissension in
the rankB of the government supporters "amounts to nothing. We
expect to he doing business at the
old stand for a long time to come."
Mr. Cotton is an elderly gentleman of pleasant and courteous address, and makes a favorable impression on the average stranger.
Steel Gang Began on this Work Yes.
While   in  conversation  with   the IUYING   RAILS   ON   SPURS
Kecord man, he asked a good many |
questioiiH about Cascade, its mag-
nificant water power, now under
development, its population, etc.,
and seemed to lake a lively interest
in the place.
It is hoped that Cascade will
benefit from his visit to this country.
Christina Lake Man Married.
S. W. Spaulding, formerly in
charge of theCannonball.on Christina lake, but now in Rossland,has
stolen a march on his friends. Several days ago he slipped off to Colville and was married to Mrs. E.
Wickers, formerly of English Point.
The Record joins in the heartiest
congratulations now being showered on the newly married couple,
who arekeeping house in Rossland,
Jack is superintendent of the California, one of the Graves properties.
Black Opal Co.'s Property.
C. S. Wallis, of Rossland, one of
the officials of the Black Opal Mining Co., Ltd., owning the Caledonia
claim, on Castle mountain, three
miles from Cascade, is now having
development done on the property,
with D. C. Beach in charge. A well-
timbered shaft is being sunk on the
ledge, and thus far the indications
are exceedingly promising. The
property is thought well of, and
will doubtless be heard from in the
Back From Buffalo Hump.
Ernest Gribi, brother of Fred.
Gribi, manager of the Cascade
meat market, returned Tuesday
from a four months' trip to the
Buffalo Hump district in Idaho.
He has an excellent opinion of that
section, and while away made several locations in Connelly camp,
which he thinks will turn out well.
Mr. Gribi will now turn his attention to the development of the Mascot claim, within eight of Cascade,
east of Kettle river.
School Hours Changed.
According to the usual custom,
the hours for opening and closing
the Cascade and other public
schools of British Columbia,changed on Wednesday the 1st inst.
From November to March, inclusive, the schools are opened at 9:30
a. m., and dossed at 3 p. m. This
is on account of the shortness of
the days, due partly to the latitude
of the province and partly to its
mountainous character. In other
school months the hours are from
9 a. m. to 3:30 p. m.
George A. Eastman, financial
broker, who was located at Brooklyn, then at Cascade, and for a
month at Eholt, was in town yesterday, on his way to Rossland,
Nelson, Calgary, and his old home
at Wheatley, Ontario.
Don't forget to hear J. W. Bengough, at the First Presbyterian

Track Not to Oo On to Midway Till Iron oa
the Branch Lines Is Down���Want to
Get the Ores.
Jack Stewart made a trip to the
rail-head this week, which is now
at Anaconda. It has been decided
to lay the steel on the branches to
the mines before the track is con-
tiued from Greenwood to Midway,
as the C. P. R. is anxious to begin
hauling out the ore that is awaiting
at the several dumps in Summit
and Phoenix camps. There is also
an immense tonnage, in the shape
of merchandise and machinery to
go in.
Accordingly yesterday the work
was begun of putting down the iron
on the Summit spur from Eholt.
As the grade is steep, it is done by
hand. At present there are only
three miles of steel on hand, bin
more is expected daily, and Phoenix
will be reached if the snow has to
be shoveled out of the grade.
When the rails will go to Midway is thus an open question, and
it seems possible that it may be
spring before the road is completed
to that point. It is not likely that
passenger trains will be operated
to Greenwood for three or four
weeks yet. Several miles of ballasting yet remains, after which
official inspections must take place.
Besides, it is desired to inspect it
through to Midway, should the
steel be obtained, by any happenstance, to lay the rails that far.
Eholt is to have a Presbyterian
church, and also a school, as soon
as it can be arranged.
Wednesday night was Halloween,
and Cascade's small hoys, as usual,
were somewhat in evidence.
H. S. Turner, an experienced
newspaper man, a native of Sherbrooke, Quebec, has arrived in Cascade, and accepted a position with
the Record.
Complaints of the non-delivery
of mail sacks on time at Cascade
have almost entirely disappeared
since Brockman & Lay took over
the stage line.
C. H. May has kept his pack
train busy all the week, getting in
supplies and feed for the winter to
the Pontifex group, on Huckleberry mountain.
Messrs. Blossom and Clements,
two missionaries from Nelson, B.

They will continue on up through
the Boundary and the Okanagan.
The Spokane Northern Telegraph
company is reported to have opened
an office at Curlew, Washington.
It is expected that the company

November 4, 1889
Frank Bailey Returns After a Three-
Months Trip.
Went as Far as Hope and Vancouver, After
Making Several Good Locations.
"Cascade has the best townsite
from the Columbia river to Vancouver," said Frank Bailey this
week to a Record man.
Mr. Bailey left Cascade last July
for a trip out through the Similkameen, accompanied by K. P. Matheson. He went to Midway, Rock
Creek, Oro, Krugers, Keremeos,
Twenty-mile, Princeton,and Hope,
on the main line of the C. P. R.,
and thence to Vancouver before returning Considerable time was
spent in various Similkameen
camps, and the majority of the
best propreties visited. Taking it
all around, his opinion of the district is distinctly favorable, "Keremeos will undoubtedly iwake an
important point," 6aid Mr. Bailey.
"It has splendid mineral showings
around it; has a fine site for the
town, and best of all, the surveys
for the C. P. R. extension run
directly through the townsite. It
will surelybe a place of prominence
as the mines are developed and the
country settles up." Mr. Bailey
made eight locations while away,
which he thinks highly of. He
also took an option on the Kansas
claim, near Summit City, on the
Tullameen river, for $10,000. There
are six inches of ore on the claim,
averaging $50 in gold, silver and
copper, and some assays gave over
$300. Summit City, on the divide,
will be an important mining point.
It is 26 miles from Hope, 12 miles
from Princeton, and 35 miles up
the Tullameen from Granite Creek,
where the recording office is located. There is much high grade
galena in that vicinity, and a large
number of locations. On Twenty-
mile creek tbe Rockefeller or Standard Oil interests have extensive
holdings, and easily have ore
enough now in sight to pay the
purchase price of the properties
The most prominent of these is
the Nickel Plate. Mr. Bailey made
two locations at the head of Twenty-
mile creek, called the Primerose
and Teviott, which have a fine
showing of solid ore, consisting of
sulphides of copper.
While away Mr. Bailey saw
Cramer, Darcy and others from
Cascade, all of whom had great
confidence in the locations they
have made. Darcy will stay and
work his claims all winter. Volcanic Brown was also met going in
with an outfit to work the Sunset,
the best claim on Copper mountain.
One of tbe most welcome friends
that met Mr.Bailey's eye, he asserts,
at Princeton or elsewhere, where
there was a postoffice, was the Cascade Record, which, of course, was
read and re-read,and passed around
in the camps.
When you want to get a definition of lonesomeness, go and consult a clerk who is in the employment of a merchant who does not
The carpenters and joiners of
Greenwood have organized a union.
Game is plenty this fall. As a
result venison is a common thing
on Cascade tables nowadays.
There is a demand for laborers in
Cascade, as well as in Grand Forks.
Contractor Quinlivan could use
several mor6 on his rock work here.
Monday's train brought in two
prominent smelter men, Jay P.
Graves and Paul Johnson, of Grand
Forks and Greenwood respectively.
It has been decided to lay the
steel on the B. C. camp and Phoenix
camp spurs as soon as possible,
even before finishing the tracklaying to Midway.
It is expected that the $20,000
bond on the King William, on Deep
Creek, given by Gilbert R. Kinnear,
the owner, will be taken up some
time this month.
T. F. Carden and Paul Rochussen, two of the managers of the
English store, went up to the new
branch at Eagle City on the north
fork of Kettle river, Monday.
John Pelkey, who has been doing
development work on the Dewey
claim,, near the King William,
above Deep Creek, brought in some
fine samples for assaying early in
the week.
The Grand Forks Miner is putting on style, and is now being

The principle of State control or
ownership of public services, remarks the Toronto World, is becoming popular all over Canada.
The latest province to declare in
favor of it is British Columbia. At
least one of the two political parties of that province, the Conservatives, has accepted the principle,
and has included it in its platform.

The Canadian Pacific railway
has a monopoly in the Boundary
transportation business. Even the
Bossburg route, by which freight
was teamed from Bossburg to
Grand Forks and other Boundary
points is now closed. No repairs
were made on the road this summer
and it is now impassable. All
Boundary freight originating in the
United States is now brought to
Nelson and forwarded over the
Canadian Pacific.���Nelson Tribune.
For publishing misleading information, the Nelson Tribune
stands at the head. The Bossburg
route is not closed, and will not be.
The road is bad, but nevertheless
there is a constant stream of freighters using it. All Boundary freight
originating in the United States
does not go through Nelson or
Rossland, and thence by rail to the
Boundary. When it takes two and
three weeks to get a shipment from
Nelson or Rossland, all rail, the
wonder is that any of it comes via
Robson. It is extremely fortunate
that the C. P. R. has not yet a complete monopoly of the carrying
Nearly every merchant in the
Boundary has a story to tell of how
much longer it now takes to get
freight by rail than heretofore by
wagon, and in many cases how it
actually costs more by rail than it
did by wagon. When this state of
affairs was brought to the attention
of President Shaughnessy a few
days ago, he is reported to have remarked that his company did not
wish to run the freighters out of
business. This was certainly con*
siderate on the part of the president of Canada's greatest railway
corporation. But it is poor satisfaction to the shipper who must
use his line.
It may be said, in extenuation,
that the C. P. R. operating department is not yet in actual possession
of the Boundary branch, and will
not be till the line is completed.
It is now, as far as finished and inspected, in the hands of the C. P.
R. construction department. It is
difficult too see, however, how this
condones the wretched freight service and the exorbitant charges exacted.   With  a daily train each
way, the passenger service is vastly
better. It is high time that some
attention was paid to bettering the
freight service. It would be some
satisfaction if the time and accommodations were in accordance with
the tariff charged, but such ie not
the case.
The British press is now having
the same opportunity for war news
that the American press has had
for a year and a half. And the
most is being made of it, let it be
In the early engagements in the
Transvaal, the "men in little
clothes" bothered the Boers not a
little. These same Highlanders
will give a good account of themselves, as in the past.
It was a royal reception given
the Canadian contingent all along
the route to the point of embarkation for the Transvaal. The thousand men are now on the high seas,
bound for South Africa.
The Greenwood Times is already
kicking about the incessant toot
of railway whistles, and the clanging of locomotive bells in that
town. Some people would kick if
they were to be hanged.
A. L. Knox, formerly of the
Ymir Miner, has gone to the Transvaal war as correspondent of the
Associated Press. There is no use
in trying to keep the press down���
it gets there every time.
Hon. F. Carter-Cotton inform?
the editor of the Record that next
year the government will spend a
large amount of money in building
roads and trails in the Boundary.
This will be welcome news from the
minister of lands and works.
The news that two entire British
regiments were captured by the
Boers came as a thunder-clap to the
English speaking world. But
the arrival of Sir Redvers Buller,
the commander in chief, at the
Cape, lends renewed assurance as
to the outcome. With nearly 90,-
000 men, the flower of the British
arms, at his command. Oom Paul
will wish he had not declared war.
Last week the Record announced
the closing down of work on the
Cannonball group, on Christina
lake, on account of water in the
shaft. This week this paper takes
pleasure in stating that work haB
been resumed, that a hoisting and
pumping plant will be installed at
onre, and that development will
continue all winter. The owners of
this splendid property are miners.
Minister Tarte, of Quebec, is just
now being broiled on the journalistic gridiron for the alleged assertion that in case of a passage-at-
arms between France and England
his place would be with the former.
This seems to be so wholly irrational
and idiotic a stand for an official
to take, that the charge may be
viewed with many grains of allowance until Mr. Tarte is heard from.
It is probable the report was set
afloat for political effect.
Now that there is a daily train
service into the Boundary, the
postal officials should at once take
steps to have Kootenay mails carried over the new route. If there
are not too many miles of red tape
to unwind, this may be done by
next spring.
Admiral Dewey has at last met
his Waterloo and succumbed to
cupid's charms, in the person of a
buxom and wealthy widow of 40���
Mrs. W. B. Hazen. Not all the
Spaniards and Filipinos could
make the hero of Manila quail as
has one single woman. Dewey announced his engagement this week.
Competitive smelters and a railroad spur to every camp will combine to make the Boundary district
one of the most productive and
profitable in all the Kootenays.
The above from the Spokesman-
Review is evidence thaX the editor's
recent trip to Republic should have
been extended to the Boundary.
Failing this, he should consult son e
of the many atlases with which his
office is supplied, and he would
learn that the Boundary is a separate and distinct district from the

There is Intense Activity in Bustling
Greenwood Camp.
All Eyes at Present Centered on That Center of Many Mines, and Great Predictions are Made For It.
It ie safe to say that no town
in the entire Boundary is to-day
attracting an much attention from
the outside world as is the new
town of Phoenix, formerly known
as Greenwood camp, which was-
visited a few days since hy a Record
The town is situated on the summit hetween Grand Porks and
Greenwood, ahout five miles from
the latter, aud the same distance
from Eholt. Grand Forks is some
17 miles distant hy wagon-road. At
present there are three closely joined
sections of the camp, which, at the
present rate of growth, will become
one before long. The Rumberger
townsite, where the postoffice is located and where the growth is going
on, is on the stage road, on either
side being the New York claim,
platted, which is being managed by
George Breakenridge; and the old
Ironsides property, which is being
surveyed into town lots, also. Mr.
George Rumberger, with characteristic energy, has graded Dominion
avenue, and his property has had
rapid sale.
At present there are several stores
of various kinds doing business,
with many more now building.
The pioneer store is that of the
Wynkoop-Stevens Trading Co., and
which is doing an excellent business. The Hunter-Kendri^k Co.,
P. Burns & Co., Morrin & Thomson
and others are located there. William Hunter, of Silverton, bought
a lot for $1,000 the other day and
is already building his store.
Bourke & Co., A. P. McKenzie &
Co., Miller Bros., Vaughn & Mclnnes, C. W. Greer, Mueller Bros.,
Wm. Wolverton, Martin Bros, Geo.
Murphy, Joe Hedges, and a dozen
besides, have either built or are
building now.
In the hotel line there is no lack
as yet, and the field bids fair to be
well occupied. Ira Black is just
opening his three-story hotel; the
Hotel Phoenix, by Harry Nash,the
oldest in the place, is still turning
away guests daily; the Butte, man*
aged by C W. Abbott, is doing an
immense business, as is also the
Imperial, owned by Weeks & Hogan. Others are building, and a
$20,000 hotel building is contemplated.
What is Behind the Town.
The wonder of nearly every newcomer to Phoenix is, that, with the
pay-roll behind it, a good-sized
town has not sprung there before
this. Nearly 400 men are now employed in the mines in and around
Phoenix, working the eight-hour
day at $3.50, giving an aggregate
pay-roll of $40,000 per month. The
place is, therefore, well termed the
pay-roll city. It is well known
that right here are some of the
largest and most permanent ore
bodies in British Columbia, and
.hat all of the old concerns as well
as several new ones, are preparing
to increase their forces.
Among the mines in or near the
camp are the old Ironsides, Knob
Hill, Victoria, Idaho, Brooklyn,
Stemwinder, Gold Drop, Snowshoe,
Golden Crown and- Winnipeg.
Nearly all of theee are working,
while many others are getting
ready to carry on development on
an extensive scale. The predictions
of the great majority, therefore,
that there seems to be no reason
why Phoenix should not be and
continue for all time an important
point, appear to be well founded.
Everyone has confidence in the
place, and some of the most enthusiastic make predictions for the
place that would have been thought
just as extravagant if made of Rossland five years ago. Railway connection will soon be had, a branch
of the C. P. R, running right
through the town.

A preconceived idea of the conditions under which a deposit of mineral should occur is not a safe basis
for a prospector to adopt when
searching for veins or ore deposits.
It is known that veins and ore deposits occur in the formations of
every age and in rocks of almost
every description. It is therefore
unsafe to search only for those conditions with which one has become
familiar in some other field. The
best way is to it.vestigate eyery
kind of rock, disregarding the condition under which it occurs, for in
this way only can the risk of overlooking deposits of value be diminished.���Kootenay Mining Standard.	
Large numbers of Italian railway laborers are daily wending
their way out of the Boundary
country. Most or nearly all of the
grading on which they have been
employed for months, has been
completed. Some of them spend
part of their wad on stage fare, but
most of them go on the Trot &
Walker line.
James Kent, superintendent of
the eastern division of the C. P. R.
telegraphs, with headquarters at
Montreal,and James Wilson, superintendent of the western division,
and W. J. Camp, general electrician, were on a tour of inspection
in the Boundary last week.

The Boers Lure British Soldiers Onto Dangerous Oround.
The latest news from Transvaal
is not of a nature to gladden the
hearts of loyal Britons. Two regiments of General White's army
were captured by the Boers near
Ladysmith, the latter feigning retreat, thus enticing the redcoats into unfamiliar territory, where they
were surrounded by overwhelming
numbers and compelled to surrender, after heavy losses. Gen. White
is reported to have been wounded.
A Paris dispatch, which is denied
in London,say6 that the investment
of Ladysmith is complete; that the
Boers have captured the Pieterma-
ritzburg railway. The surrender of
Mafeking is probable, if reinforcements do not arrive.
He Barely Saves Himself from a Whipping
by Sharkey.
The heavy-weight fight for the
championship of the world, between the noted pugilists Tom
Sharkey and Jim Jeffries, came off
last night as programmed, in ihe
arena of the Coney Island Jockey
club. Sharkey was apparently the
better man until the twenty-third
round wa? reached, when Jeffries
rallied and held his ground till the
conclusion of the 25th and final
round, this outcome leaving him
*till the world's champion.
Bruce White, manager of the First
Thought mine, Pierre lake, was in
town this week.
Geo. K. Stocker, among others,
made a trip to Shamrock mountain
this week, to inspect the recent fine
strike on the Elmore.
H. H. Cooper, representing W. H.
Malkin & Co., Vancouver, was in
town yesterday. He expects to be
a part of the second Canadian contingent to go to the Transvaal
and fight the wily Boers.
Next Monday a court of re virion
will he held at the court house,
Rossland, of the voters'list of Rossland riding of West Kootenay electoral district, to hear objections to
any names now on the list.
From Alaska, by way of Skag-
way, it is learned that Colonel Ray,
who is in charge of the United
States post at Eagle, has sent a
party over the Valdes trail to meet
another party coming from the
coa��t. He expects to receive
mail over the route this winter,
and to prove it an all-American
route suitable for a railroad.
A copy of the Statistical Year
Book of Canada for 1898, issued by
the Department of Agriculture, has
been received at this office. It is a
complete review of all matters relating to Canada, its history, trade,
immigration, banking, in fact all
facts and figures within the reach
of the department. It is an excellent book of reference, and a publication that should heln the Bureau

Will Give One  of  His  Splendid  Entertainments Next Wednesday.
Next Wednesday evening, November 8th, J. W. Bengough, Canada's celebrated cartoonist, will
give one of hie pleasing entertainments in Cascade. It is expected
that the new Presbyterian church
will be completed in time to be
used on that occasion. Mr. Bengough is now delivering lectures en
route to the Boundary, and after
visiting Cascade, will be in Grand
Forks, Greenwood and poss-ibly
Phoenix. His "Crayon and Comedy" program consists of impromtu
sketches on local topics, original
recitals in prose and verse, humor,
pathos, burlesque and song.
Everyone in Cascade should turn
out and enjoy an evening of merriment with Mr. Bengough. The
net proceeds of the entertainment
will go towards reducing the expense of furnishing the church.
Here are a few press comments
on Mr. Bengough'sentertainments:
"The most versatile man in Canada
���cartoonist, humorous lecturer,
opera singer, reciter, poet,'mimic���
these are some of his attributes."
���Montreal Witness. "Kept the
audience in one continual roar
of laughter."���Quebec Chronicle.
''Striking as all the likenesses
were, the rapidity with which they
were produced was one of the features which struck the beholder."���
Vancouver World. "Mr. Bengough
is what a we6tener describes as "no
slouch," blending with his qualities
as a cartoonist, those of a first-class
comedian. His impersonation of
certain social and political foibles
are simply inimitable."���Victora
Times. "Most unique and mirth-
provoking. Drew forth the enthusiastic applauditsof the audience"���
Toronto Globe. "Astonished and
delighted the company with an exhibition of versatile genius"���N.
Y. World. "He was a host in himself, and kept his hearers in a continual uproar."���Boston Globe.
Copper's Bright Future.
The outlook bears evidence that
the price of copper will be kept at
its present market rate for a long
time to come. Copper stocks may
respond to speculative movements
and hit every note in the gamut of
bulls and bears, but the market
price of the red metal will not vary
much from its present figures. In
a word, the demand equals the supply, and purchasers find profit in
its handling. It pays to use copper in the industrials, and a? long as
it does there will be no falling off
in its price.
The prospecting for copper propositions is meeting success in every
portion of the great mineral west
and northwest. Copper prospects
are being developed into producing
mines, and the mines are being
capitalized at healthy figures. The
investing capital in the east is
hungry for copper stocks, and very
many who have been content with
their little holdings in small dividend paying pursuits, are putting
their money in copper securities
yielding larger interest on their
It is said there is no trouble to
sail a copper mine in New York or
in Boston. All that the would-be
purchaser wishes to know is that
there is merit in the mine, and that
a reasonable price is wanted for it.
The capitalist who can be satisfied
upon,these points becomes a ready
purchaser.��� The Western Mining
