THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interests of the. Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, SEPTEMBER 2, 1899.
No. 43.
FAST PASSENGER TRAINS
Will Probably Run on the new Line
in Two Weeks
INTO GRAND FORKS NEXT MONDAY
Rumbles From the Rails���New Appointments
sod Oeneral News ot the Railway Coo*
���traction.
Chief Engineer and Superintendent W. F. Tye came over from
Trail on a special train yesterday
afternoon and was in consultation
with the contractors. He informed
the Record that the new railway
line would not be taken over by
the operating department of the
C. P. R. till the road was completed to Midway. He expected,
however, that passenger service
would begin in a couple of weeks.
It is Mr. 'lye's intention to arrange, if possible, to put on fast
passenger trains, which will leave
Rossland at 7 a. m., make closd
connections at Robson, and reach
Midway by noon. The return trip
will be made the same day. The
road bed is in such excellent condition that the best of time can he
made with but little if any difficulty.
-,'   Into Grand Porks Monday.
During the last week the tracklayers have made excellent progress. Tuesday they reached the
third Kettle river crossing at Mc-
Cool's. and Thursday at 4 p. m.
they got the track laid to the 1,400-
foot bridge at Grand Forks. It
will require only three days to
place the stringers on this bridge,
and l>y Monday the track should
be laid into Grand Forks. There
will be no time lost here, but steel
will be put down as fast as it can
be brought forward. Gangs of
carpenters have already been set
to work on the bridges between
Grand Forks and Greenwood, and
they will be nearly or quite ready
for the rails as soon as the tracklayers get there.
Rumbles From the Rails.
Eleven passengers came down on
the special last night, the destination of all of them being   Cascade.
Billy Wall's bridge crew was
sent to Grand Forks this week to
put the long bridge in shape for
crossing.
Locomotives for the present take
water at Castle creek and at Gilpin's. Later on a supply tank will
probably be put up in the Cascade
yards.
H. J. Hioks, formerly of Rossland, arrived in Cascade this week
to take the position of telegraph
operator and assistant to Agent
Huckerby.
President. Thomas G. Shaugh-
nessey, of the C. P. R., expects to
make a trip of inspection over the
new line, as soon as the rails are
laid to Midway.
W. F. Tye, chief  engineer,  has
been appointed superintendent of
this branch during construction.
Mr. Tye came in from Trail last
night on a special.
V.   Monnier  received   a car of
Lion beer from Rossland this week
It was on the road so long that he
says an ox team, by way of Bossburg, could make better time.
J. S. Lawrence, formerly trainmaster on the Nakusp & Slocan
branch, has been appointed trainmaster and chief dispatcher, with
headquarters at Trail. His assistant will be Dispatcher Lewis.
Mother Lode Smelter Located.
Last Saturday night, at a banquet given in his honor at Greenwood, Paul Johnson made the definite announcement that the Mother
Lode smelter would be built at the
mouth of Copper creek, adjoining
the townsite of Greenwood. The
reduction works will be situated
only three miles from the Mother
Lode mine. Surveys were begun
this week, and it is the intention
to put in a 250-ton copper furnace
to start with.
MAKES A CLEAN BREAST
At the Arson Trial at Grand Forks Others are Implicated.
Plokerton Detective Worked up the Case���Pro.
vinclal Ofllcers Have Had their
Hands Full Lately.
Robert Cameron, alias Jack Cameron, alias Campbell, alias Crane,
charged with setting tire to the
Hotel Columbia on the night of
July 17th, has been in the Cascade
jail this week for safe keeping.
Chas. Mullen, also arrested on a
like charge was in durance vile at
Grand Forks, the hearing for both
being set for today at Grand Forks.
Wm. Forrest and Paul Rochussen,
of Cascade, are the justices selected
to hear the case.
Quietly but effectively, a shrewd
Pinkerton detective, Mr. Donovan,
of Portland, Ore., has been working
on the Case for weeks, and it looks
like a bad case for more than one
person. The men arrested were
both gamblers, who had been well
known at Grand Forks. Thursday an important witness from
Spokane was secured. Some sensational arrests have heen expected
every day this week. It has been
stated positively that as high as
$50,000 bail was offered to release
the prisoners, hut the justices
could not see it that way. The
men will undoubtedly be committed for trial at the county court.
Constables Dinsmore, Darraugh
and McMynn have heen active in
assisting the detective on the case,
and visits to Cascade have been
frequent for several days past.
Yesterday Mr. Dinsmore took Cameron to Grand Forks to appear today.
It is rumored this afternoon that
Cameron made a clean breast of it
this morning, implicating others.
GOOD NEWS FROM MINES
All Around Cascade Working Properties
Are Looking Well.
RICH STRIKE ON ED. TERZICK CLAIM
Spokane and English Experts In the Burnt
Basin���Pleased With Showings���Getting
Ready tor Winter Work.
Now that it is so much easier to
get into the Christina lake mining
camps by rail, they will undoubtedly be brought more to the attention of capitalists. Development
continues steadily on many claims,
and so far disappointments have
been few.
Last night Col. Frank Hogan, of
Spokane, came down from the
Burnt Basin, where he has been
for several days, examining Richard Cooper's properties, the Solid
Gold group. Mr. Hogan represents
Senator George Turner, of LeRoi
fame, and expressed himself here
as well pleased with the appearance of the claims. He secured
samples, which will be tested.
Edgar P. Rathbone, the mining
engineer of the B. C. Syndicate,
hH*.4)eoii-.examaning' properties in
Christina lake camps for about 10
days. He visited Shamrock mountain, John Bull mountain, McRae
creek and the Burnt Basin, and
while he is not expected back till
today, he expressed himself more
than once as well satisfied that
there were the makings of several
good mines in this section. As Mr.
Rathbone is conservative, such a
statement carries a great deal of
weight.
Cannonball Ofllcers Elected.
The Cannonball Mines, Ltd., operating the Cannonball group, on
Baker creek, in charge of Jack
Spaulding, is continuing with the
work of sinking on the lead, the
shaft now being down over 50 feet.
Mr. Spaulding was in town today.
A hoard of directors was chosen at
Rossland, consisting of Mayor A.S.
Goodeve, president, and Thomas C.
Corson, secretary-treasurer. Treasury shares' will he offered shortly,
and R. D. Morkill, Jr., has been
accredited as the company's agent,
to place them in the east, for which
he will leave in a few days. Cabins
and shaft-house will be erected on
the property shortly, and preparations made for working all winter.
Two and a half miles from Gladstone, on the Jessie F. fraction, Ed.
Terzick has made a rich strike in
the bottom of a 21-foot shaft. Ore
from the free-milling six-foot lead
gives the remarkable values of
$864.64, mostly gold. Some 50 tons
of ore are already on the dump,
which will be shipped over the new
railway line. Drifting on the ledge
will be started when the shaft is
down 20 feet further. This is at
present one of the most promising
of the many good prospects in that
section.
CHRISTINA MINERAL FLOAT.
Fred Gribi is steadily working
his claim, the Mascot, across Kettle
river, near the railway, where he iB
sinking an incline shaft.
The second ledge in No. 1 tunnel
in the Mystery, Burnt Basin, has
been struck 165 feet in, and the
face is reported to be all in ore.
It is rumored that active development work will probably be begun on the rich Shamrock and
Thistle claims on Shamrock mountain. .
K. P. Matheson writes to his
brother in Cascade that he has
made two fine locations, about 15
miles from Princeton, in the Similkameen.
S. R. Reid, who has been in the
Buffalo Hump and other Idaho
camps for a couple of months, is
expected in Cascade shortly to look
after his Christino lake interests.
George K. Stocker has had the
assessment work done on the Rainy
claim on John Bull mountain, near
Gladstone, and is pleased with the
appearance of the property, which
is located close to the Grizzjy Bear.
J. H. Inkster has ordered cabins
built at the Pontifex group on
Huckleberry mountain, 5 miles
from town, which he is actively developing. A trail will be blazed

An Advertising Song.
One of the English trade journals publishes the following parody on "I Don't Want to Play in
Your Yard," which it says, is going
the rounds and is likely to prove a
bit:
We don't want to buy at your place,
We don't trade there any more;
You'll be sorry when yon see us going to
some other store.
You can't sell us any stale goods
We have opened wide our eyes:
We don't want to trade at your place because
you do not advertise.

New Compressor tor Ball Dog TmmL   .
When Peter Larson, the railway
contraotor, visited the 3,000-foot
tunnel, near Brooklyn, in company
with J. W. Stewart, it was decided
to put in u new seven-drill air compressor, to replace the one disabled
early in the week. Accordingly,
Mr. Larson proceeded to Rossland
and through Frank R. Mendenhall,
agent of the Rand Drill Co., order-
the maohiue referred to. Fortunately, it happened to be in stock
in Rossland. and was shipped at
once to the tunnel, and it now be-
in \i set up.
Olaf Olson, the capable superintendent of operations at the tunnel,
has about 150 men at work, and is
making about 42 feet weekly on the
18x24 foot bore. So far about 1,700
feet have been completed, leaving
1,800 feet yet to drive.
Phoealx Is Qrowlif.
The town of Phoenix, as Greenwood camp is now known, is attracting a good deal of attention,
hy reason of its favorable location
in the heart of the big Boundary
mines. It has had a postoffice for
some time, has a school promised,
and within a short time will have
that indispensable adjunct of all
up-to-date mining camps, a good
weekly newspaper. It is said that
a plant iB now being shipped in.
Several large mercantile establishments are located there, and a
number of hotels are building. Altogether its prospects are bright, as
the town has a good sized payroll
behind it.
The OsIm k Roy Stock.
In July Gaine & Roy made an
assignment to J. H. Good, for the
benefit of credits. A few weeks
later the creditors held a meeting
and appointed G. A. Eastman as
trustee, and the latter was making arrangements to dispose of the
assets, when the sheriff seized the
stock. The Hudson's Bay Co. had
obtained a judgment against Mr.
Roy for $691, the assignment was
declared irregular, and Sheriff G.B.
Taylor took possession, and advertise the stock for sale.
Today papers were made out and
signed for a new assignment, and
the stock is expected to go back into the hands of Mr. Eastman for
the benefit of creditors. Otherwise
it will probably he fought out in
the courts.

REDUCED SMELTING RATES.
Although no official announcement has been made to that effect,
the rumor is so persistent that a
$4.50 freight and treatment rate of
Rossland ores has been made, that
some credence must be given to it.
It is said that the British America
Corporation, owning the Northport
smelter and a number of Rosuland's
best mines, has made this low rate,
with a view possibly of getting ore
from some mines not owned by it.
At any rate, it is largely increasing
capacity of its Northport smelter.
For months past the Canadian
Smelting Works, at Trail, owned
by the C. P. R., has been improving and adding to its plant at the
mouth of Trail creek, and it is evident that it is preparing to meet
all competition in the smelting
line. The C. P. R. never does
things by halves. Many months
ago preparations were begun for
the inauguration of a great smelting industry in Southern British
Columbia, of which the works at
Trail were but the nucleus. This
policy ia being carried out, and one
feature of it is to encourage mining
by low freight and smelting rates.
Beginning at Heinze's figure of $11
per ton, it has gradually been reduced to $7, then $6, and now the
"$4.50 rate will doubtless prevail.
This all means that dozens of
low grade mines���as low as $10
per ton in ore values���can and will
be worked to a profit, and that
both the LeRoi and Northport
smelters can be run to fullcapacity
on Rossland ores alone. It also
means that there will be no room
for Boundary ores for any length
of time at the Trail smelter, even
if the transportation charges permitted it, and that the time, consequently, for work on the Cascade
smelter is coming faster than has
been anticipated.
ANOTHER BOUNDARY SMELTER.
Greenwood is to have a smelter,
almost within its city limits. Paul
Johnson, the expert of the British
Columbia Copper Co., a strong New
York corporation, the stock of
which is above par, has made this
definite announcement, and Greenwood i�� to be congratulated. This
smelter is to be built primarily to
treat the ores of the Mother Lode
mine, located three miles from the
smelter site, and Mr. Johnson
states that it will also be prepared
to do custom work. If, however,
the Mother Lode can produce to
the extent predicted, with one or
two other mines of equal size, it
will have all that can be handled.
With the Granby smelter under
construction at Grand Forks, the
Mother Lode smelter about to
build at Greenwood and the Cascade smelter almost equally as
assured, the Boundary country
will next year be the center of a
great smelting industry, of which
these reduction works will only be
the beginning.
The new ruilway is now absolutely assured of an immense traffic
from the start. The bringing in of
coke itself will be no small item,
and the tonnage of ores and the
products of the smelters, aside from
the general consequent trade of the
district, will swell its business toj
gigantic proportions. The Boundary will be one of the greatest
mining and smelting sections in
the world.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Cape Nome, in northwestern
Alaska, is not a fake, after all, as
was reported, but has rich placers.
Nevertheless, we are satisfied to
stay in British Columbia, rather
than chase a golden will-o'-the-wisp
o'er the icy north.
It appears as" though'the miscreants who set fire to the Hotel
Columbia on the night of July 17,
would be speedily brought to justice. The law should treat them
without fear or favor, no matter
what their station.
Sixteen out of 38 votes is pretty
small for a government party to
count upon. Yet this is exactly
all the opposition will concede to
the present government. The opposition itself does not seem to be
in much better shape, as it lacks
organization of any kind.
In another column will be found
a verbatim report of a press dispatch, stating that a strike that
would make the Columbia & Western railway contractors' millionaires, had been made near Cascade
on the railway grade. It is asam
pie of how press dispatches are
sometimes fearfully and wonderfully made���through the eyes or
pen of an over zealous news-gatherer.
Gladstone to Penticton is not tributary to it.
Last week's Greenwood Times
contained a humorous and sarcastic article on the mines claimed as
tributary to Grand Forks. It is
not so long ago that the Forkers
were claiming Burnt Basin and
Christina claims, to say nothing
of those of Deadwood camp, Greenwood camp and others, as "Grand
Forks mines.'' Grand Forks is a
good town, but every camp from
Paul John has done what the
smelter experts have heretofore declined to do, recommended the location of a smelter where there was
little water, and where is a long
up-hill haul to get his fluxes in.
It will be interesting to note his
success in the new method of ore
treatment.
The Vernon News, in reporting
on the failure of a circus to exhibit
there as advertised, remarks sen-
tentiously: "However, there will
be all the more money left to send
to Eaton & Co." This is a pleasant contemplation for the merchants of that section. Speaking
seriously, however, anything that
can be secured of home merchants,
should t>e gotten there. The prosperity of the business man is an
index of the entire community.
��� Midway was very confident that
the Mother Lode smelter would be
located there and laughed at the
idea that it would go to Greenwood.
The versatile Grand Forks correspondent, who scatters his misleading information far and wide,
was also of the same opinion, and
was net slow in expressing it to a
breathless public, from Toronto to
Vancouver. But, seemingly, Greenwood had the trump card, and;
could well afford to laugh last.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
The Merchants' Bank of Halifax
opened its branch at Republic last
Saturday..
Dr. Frank J. Ewing, one of the
contractors' physicians, was in
town Tuesday.
J. J. Doupe, engineer for the land
department of the C. P. R. was in
Cascade a few days ago.
Cascade's postmaster now has a
stock of the old three cent stamps,
surcharged in black for two cents.
. The Grand Forks base hall team
bested the Nelson, B. C, team on
ihe latter's grounds last Saturday,
by a score of 7 to 8.
Camp McKinney now has. three
mails weekly from each way. As
it has daily stage connections, it
should have daily mails.
Imports at the port of Grand
Forks this last month are said to
have amounted to $45,000, on
which over $10,000 was collected
in duty.
James Wilkes, organizer for the
Western Federation of Labor, has
organized a miners' union at Camp
McKinney with 45 members. He
also started unions at Phoenix and
Greenwood recently.
Joshua Anderson, the well known
storekeeper of Columbia, was in
Cascade Tuesday, on his way to
Nelson. He thinks Columbia will
be a good town after the railway
tracks are laid that far.
Chesaw, the new reservation
town, on Meyers creek, now has 26
buildings, with contracts let for as
many more. It has daily stage
connections with Greenwood, and
iB surrounded by good mineral
properties.

THE CASCADE RECORD
BY THE WAYSIDE
Since the new railway began delivering freight to Cascade, there
has beer) a noticeable falling off. in
the number of freight teams doing
business between Bossburg and the
upper country. In fact, it may be
said that not one-half the former
number of teams are so employed
at present. For a month or two
past merchants and business men
generally have been routing good*
to Cascade by rail. There is a
loud howl, however, over the excessive "construction'' freight rate?
charged. This, however, will not
probably last long, as it is expected
that the C. P. R. will take the line
over shortly.
In this connection it is rumored
that the Great Northern is thinking of ccntracting to deliver freight
as far as Grand Forks, the freighters, it is said, agreeing to accept 50
cents or 60 cents per hundred for
their part of the haul from Bossburg. It is thus evident that the
Great Northern is already feeling
the falling off in-traffic to these
parts since the C. P. R. reached
Cascade. Boundary merchants,
however, say that the present tariff
makes it more costly to get goods
in than before���which moBt certainly ought not to be.
In acknowledging a recent communication from residents of Cascade, in regard to the poor mail
service into Boundary, Hewitt Bostock, M. P., remarks: "I do not
understand why it has not been
straightened out before." Quite
right, Mr. Bostock; no more can
we.
A unique and telling advertisement has recently been gotten out
by the Record Job Department for
the B. C. Mercantile & Mining Syndicate. It consists of a carefully
drawn and especially made map of
the Boundary country, showing
Cascade as the Gateway City and
its general advantages as regards
location and situation, the whole
printed on the back of a business
envelope. In the corner are the
following words: "California '49;
Australia, '59; Com��tock' 69; Lead-
ville. 79; Transvaal '89; Boundary,
Right Now." It is said that maps
and illustrations appeal more
quickly than ai.y other form of advertisement, and this is no exception to the rule. On this map the
several stores of the Syndicate, at
Gladstone, English Point and Cas
cade, are shown in red, the whole
forming a most effective plan of
advertisement.
The Rossland Record has again
changed hands and this time it
passes into the control of W. K.
Esling, of the Trail Creek News.
Mr. Esling is an energetic business
man and bright writer, and will
doubtless infuse new energy into
our namesake at the other end of
the Dewdney trail. There is room
for a first-class daily in Rowland,
if conducted hy an experienced
newspaper man along the right
lines, and with ample capital tn
put it through. Mr. Esling ought
to make a success of it.
The contract price for the new
school building at Columbia is
$1,495, it having been let to J. H.

J. C. Shepherd, who has had
charge of the contractors' commissary at Cascade for over a year
past, left on Thursday for Port
Arthur, Ontario, to accept a similar position with Mann & Mackenzie on the Rainy River road, on
which work is about to commence.
Mr. Shepherd has made many
friends in Cascade, and the night
previous a. number of his well
wishers showed him their appreciation by giving a smoker in the
Cascade Auditorium. Mr. Shepherd's new position is in the line of
promotion, as he will receive higher
pay-
The Rainy River road is one of
those subsidized by the late Dominion parliament, and when completed will be 460 miles long. It
runs from Port Arthur, on Lake
Ontario, through the upper edge of
Minnesota, and around the Lake
of the Woods, to Winnipeg. The
work is largely of a rock character,
which is always pleasing to contractors, and means many monthi
of work for a large force of men.
Several of the sub-contractors on
the Robson-Penticton line, having
finished here, are moving their
outfits to the Rainy River road.
A unique character among the
newspaper men of the��e parts is
Eber C. Smith, until lately publisher of the great and only Rosa-
land Record, the first daily established in that city. Mr. Smith
was in Cascade yesterday, on hie
return from Grand Forks, where
he has decided to start a daily in
the course of a month or six weeks,
to be called the Grand Forks Gazette. He thinks he has received
sufficient encouragement for the
successful conduct oi the enterprise,
and will soon be launched on the
troubled Peas of daily journalism
once more. Mr. Smith is energetic
to a degree, being a hard worker,
but it remains to be seen what success he can make of a daily in a
town as small as Grand Forks.
His old opponent in the Robsland
field, John R. Reavis, is already
located in Grand Forks, and is
publisher of the prosperous looking
Miner of that place.
Finley Sinclair, the assistant of
Collector Rose at the custom house,
left with Mrs. Sinclair this morning for Rossland. During their
several months residence in Cascade they have made many warm
friendships, and Mr. Sinclair, hy
his uniform courtesy and efforts to
accommodate the thousands who
have transacted business at the
customs house has won the respect
and esteem of all. Mr. Sinclair
expects to he located somewhere in
the Boundary country, possibly at
Columbia.
Frederick Elkins, who has been
in town several days, in connection
with winding up the stock of Gaine
& Roy, is a resident of Greenwood,
where he has extensive property
interests. He is one of those who
firmly believe that Greenwood is
destined to become the most important town of the district, and
has shown his faith hy acquiring
property interests there. He was
previously provincial constable in
Cascade. 6
THE   CASCADE   RECORD
September 2, 1899
WILL MAKE THEM MILLIONAIRES.
And the Ledge Is Said to be Located Near
Caicade.
The following Associated Press
dispatch was received this- week,
which makes interesting reading,
hut is only lacks one thing���the
element of truth:
Minneapolis. Aug. 28.���a Taco-
ma special to the Times says:
While grading on the Canadian
Pacific extension in British Columbia, contractors MacKenzie and
Mann have uncovered great ledges
of ore, running high in copper,
gold and silver. They are making
slow progress on the railway contracts, but the present indications
are that the mineral discoveries
will pay them far better.
A mining expert, who was just
coming from B. C, says one ledge
alone will make them millionaires.
This ledge was found near Cascade,
a new town on the Columbia &
Western railway, which the Canadian Pacific is building from Rossland into the Boundary creek district. Outcroppings were discovered some time ago, but it was only
ten days ago that the ledge itself
was uncovered by the graders. It
has not been thoroughly exploited,
but has been stripped sufficiently
to show it exceeds 50 feet in width.
Assays from near the surface gave
value of $40 to $50 per ton, making
it practically certain that another
LeRoi mine has been discovered.
MacKenzie and Mann have staked
the property find will soon begin
its development. They have declined a large sum for it. Two
smaller ledges have heen discovered
by the grading crews, both giving
promise of making good mines.
If such a ledge has been discovered near Cascade, the Record has
yet to hear of it. Numerous mineral ledges have been cut by the
railway graders from one end of
the line to the other, but as a rule
the ground was located before work
on the railway was started, over a
year ago. Assays of $40 to $50 are
not by any means remarkable
hereabouts, either. They can be
obtained from more than one lead
within sight of the Record office,
and they may prove to be second
LeRois.
MacKenzie & Mann (the former
is not one of the firm having the
contract on this road) are already
millionaires. The railway is being rapidly built, and it is generally conceeded that the contractors will not go broke on it.
With the exception of these and
a few dozen other inaccuracies the
article might pass muster.
HOW PARTIES STAND NOW.
Twenty Votes the Government Cannot Count
Upon.
The Victoria Colonist, an opposition journal has made an estimate of the present complexion of
the legislature.   It is as follows:
For tbe government: Messrs.
Semlin, Cotton, Hume, Henderson,
McKechnie, Forster, Munroe,
Deane, Tisdale, Kidd, Kinchant,
Kellie, Wells, R. Smith, Neil,
Green���16.
Opposed to the government:
Messrs. Turner, Helmcken, Hall,
McPhillips, Eberts, Booth, Pooley,
Higgins, Robertson, Bryden, Duns-
muir, Martin, McPherson, Mc-
Bride, Ellison, Smith, Baker, Irving, Clifford���19.
Independent: Mr. J. Martin.
Conditionally opposed: Mr.
Helgeson.
This estimate treats the East
Lillnoet seat as vacant, because
Mr. Prentice will hardly risk proceedings for a penalty for illegally
sitting, even if he should believe
himself to be qualified.

���
Brief Bit* Prom Many Camp*.
The Stemwinder, in Fairview
camp, is down to the 300-foot level,
and the crosscut shows 20 feet of
clear ore.
A 5-stamp mill is being hauled
from Methow valley to the Waterloo, in Camp McKinney, a distance of 100 miles.
The Adirondack, in Kimberley
camp has a 48-foot shaft, a 40-foot
ledge and fair copper and gold
values.   It is owned by M. Kane.
The graders on the Deadwood
camp spur have cut a copper lead
on the Sunset, from which 15 per
cent assays have been gotten.
This is the best ore yet found on
the property.
Fox & Ross, Toronto, have
organized the Sarah Consolidated
Co., for the purpose of acquiring
the, Belleview, Snowshoe, Toledo.
Diamond, Alice and other Camp
McKinney properties.
The agents of Marcus Daly, the
Montana mining millionaire, are
said to have bought up the best
copper claims in the Similkameen
country, including the pick of those
on Copper mountain.
Frank Bobbins, manager of the
Brooklyn and Stemwinder, owned
by Mann & MacKenzie, in Greenwood camp, is reported to have
said tha work will not be resumed
on the property until the miners
Hgree tn accept $3.00 for eight
hours' work.
The crosscut on the 327-foot
level of the Old Ironsides, in Greenwood camp, has encountered the
ledge. This is about 100 feet deeper than any other depth yet secured
in the Boundary country. Heretofore all the drifting and crosscut-
ting have been on the 100 and 200-
fiot levels, most of the work being
done on the latter.
The Kettle River Mining and
Development company is the owner of the Christina property, which
is located 12 miles from Grand
Forks on the north fork of Kettle
river. The management report
that two shifts are at present working on the property. The ore is
said to be a quartz, is free milling
and averages about $40 to the ton.
Development work is being carried on extensively on the Four
Hundred and the Delia, two adjoining properties in Central .camp
recently acquired by the Wellington Mines, Limited. The ledge on
the Four Hundred is 100 feet wide,
one of the largest in the Boundary.
Ore taken from the bottom of two
shafts averages in value from $5 to
$12 in gold and copper per ton,
and assays from the pay streak
gave $69 per ton. A double compartment working shaft is now being sunk, having attained a depth
of 85 feet.
Last week the good people of
Grand Forks���or at least a portion
of them���were worked up over the
result of news, which it was said
had reached there respecting some
remarkably rich discoveries. The
new camp is located 25 miles
northeast of Grand Forks, which
would make it not far from the
head of Christina lake. A pros-
I ector sent up in July by J.A.Coryell, C E , discovered a 40-foot vein
of ore from the surface of which
a��say values from $5 to $12 in gold
per ton were obtained. The ledge
matter is similar in color and formation to the Republic. Another
prospector found two ledges of galena carrying copper and silver values. Some of the assays exceed
$160 per ton.
For tbe Rock Drilling Contest.
The hardest granite that can be
found in the state of Washington
will be secured for the rock drilling
contest at the Spokane Industrial
Exposition in October. For the
double handed rock drilling contest
there will be two pieces of. granite
each six feet by five feet by one and
one-half. For the single handed
contests there will be one piece of
granite six feet by three and one-
half feet by one arid one-half feet.
In the double handed contest two
teams will drill at a time, each on
a separate piece of granite. In the
single handed contest two contestants will drill at a time,' but both
on the same piece of granite.

The LeRoi company has decided
to pnt in a 60-drill air compressor.
' There are 52 men on the payroll
of the Lake Shore mine at Moyie.
One car of ore was shipped last
week from Slocan City to the Hall
Mines smelter, Nelson.
The Dibble, a high grade silver
proposition near Fort Steele, will
probably resume work this fall.
Dr. Doolittle, of Toronto, has
made the last payment, $5,000, on
the Venus group near Nelson.
The Evening Star, on Dayton
oreek, in the Slocan, is about to begin work on a 1000-foot tunnel.
Last week the Queen Bess sent
out 40 tons from the Three Forks
while the Noonday continued shipments from New Denver.
The big Palmer mountain tunnel measures 2,156 feet and the
force on drifts is being increased
as fast m room can be made for it.
The members of the Canadian
Mining Institute left Toronto yesterday, and will hold the annual
meeting at Nelson on the 12th
inot.
Word haB been sent by Clement
Vaschar, who ��� is managing the
Okanogan mine at Penticton, B.
C, that a new lead of rich copper
was recently uncovered on the
property. Shipments from this
mine to the Trail smelter will be
made shortly.
The Ivanhoe, in the Slocan has
begun work on a 1200-foot tunnel,
giving 1000 feet depth at the apex.
The Carnation group, adjoining
the Wonderful, in the Slocan, has
been bonded hy Mann & MacKenzie and P. Burns to L. Alexander
for $40,000.
The Mine Owners' Association in
its fight with the Miners' Union on
the eight-hour question, says an
exchange, is in the same fix as the
man who went to lick the editor.
In the course of proceedings he
was asked to let go. The editor
had a bunch of hair in one hand,
his throat in another, and mouthful of thumb and finger, and the
assailant very properly gurgled
"I can't."
The shipments of ore from Rossland mines aggregate 20,000 tons a
month, of the approximate value
of $400,000. The difference between the value of the ore shipped
And the sums disbursed for wages
is therefore in the neighborhood of
$275,000,50 per cent, of which can
be counted as gain over and above
all expenses. This would indicate
that the producing mines of Rossland could pay $1,650,000 in dividends this year, provided the output is kept up to the 20,000 tons a
month mark.
