Bnrnt Basin and Christina Lake Claims Are
Making Splendid Showings.
Richard   Darrow   nnd    George
Moore ure down from tlie Hurnt
Kntiin where they have heen working on tlie Tin Cup claim. A good
cabin has Inert erected on the property, a shaft haa been sunk on the
lead near Ihe center of tlie claim to
a depth of 30 feet, and a crosscut
I run near the west end. On the
claim adjoining nn the west a shaft
about 20 feet, making work sufli-
cieut to prove tlie continuity and
permanency of the lead.
The Tin Cup claim was recently
taken over by New York capitalists
who organized the Tin Cup Mining
and Smelting Co., (incorporated),
and who have made provisions for
continuing the work of development. Dick says the work done so
far ia more preliminary than anything else, but the property is more
promising than ever and tbat if
the property does not make a mine
he wants to go out of the business,
From the numerous repnrts of
strikes and sales about the Hurnt
Basin, Norway Mountain and
Christina sections it is very apparent lively times are in store for this
locality the coming season.
The greatest difficulty in a new
mining camp is tbe primary enlistment of capital to open the first
clnini". The reefltrt sales of the
Mother Lode, Cooper group and
Bonanza to men of such acknowledged mining ability as S. W,
Hall, manager of the Center Star
of Rossland and tbe Jackson
brothers, the flotation of the John
Bull, and Mystery, and now the
sale of the Tin Cup to New York
capitalists together with the many
smaller deals, are an evidence that
this initiative period is now passing and gives promise of great activity for 1901. As the results
of the limited amount of work thus
far done have proved very satisfactory, and the ores discovered are of
a high grade, now that the experimental stage has passed, capital is
picking up tlie better properties.
In such a vast and rich mineral
country as the Kootenays and
Boundary districts, each section
with its own peculiar merit, it is
perhaps presumptuous to claim one
to be better than the others, but it
surely does not take a very far-
sighted individual to sec that the
Burnt Basin and Christina Lake
sections are destined to lie classed
with the best of all.

The Kettle River Valley Project Not a Dead
A correspondent of the Spokesman-Review, writing from Vancouver recently says : Hon. Clifford
Sifton was here a few days ago and
he told the electors that when he
returned to Ottawa he would immediately urge upon bis colleagues
the necessity, of doing all possible
to aid in providing railway communication by a direct route from
Vancouver to Grand Forks and
Greenwood. The men who are
trying to get this line built are
McKenzie and Mann, the Toronto
millionaires, and they, it is stated,
will act. in conjunction with the
Great Northern railway. In fact
their confidential man, Lewis Lukes,
spent a considerable time in Spokane while the Great Northern was
negotiating for the charter for the
Kettle River Valley railway wbicl
it recently secured depite, it is al
leged, the strong opposition of the
Canadian Pacific railway.
Lewis Lukes seem., lobe working
hand and glove with the Great
Northern men nn the coast on what
it is thought will be a gigantic
scheme to open up and develop
southern British Columbia from
Grand Forks to Vancouver. The
charter which the Great Northern,
in conjuction with McKenzie and
Mann, will use to effect this, will
probably be what is known as the
Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern
railway charter. That franchise
was granted some years ago, and
by some people is declared to have
lapsed. But the Great Northern
and McKenzie and Mann can he
trusted to look after that.
Ill tbe meantime there is a vast
amount, of speculation heard on
the coast us to this latest reported
railway combination, but there is
remarkably little fact to build a
reliable story upon. At all events
the matter can have but little if
nny effect at present in the sections
interested, except, perhaps in buoy
up hope. Of course there is tlie
usual satisfaction expressed at the
straightforward statement made by
Minister of the Interior Sifton as to
the railway, and naturally enough
the minister said that his declaration was not intended to be an ante-election promise. No one believed
him, but that is not at all material. The fact to he remembered is
that Jim Hill, having secured the
Republic franchise and having a
road to Nelson, is now apparently
willing to enter into a still larger
contest with the Canadian Pacific
railway for the British Columbia
Tbe registered vote of the island

Control of Dominion Copper Company Passes
Into the Hands ot a New York Syndicate.
Apparently there are to be in the
Boundary country two great railway and mining companies. McKenzie & Mann, the prominent
railway contractors, backed by Toronto capital, operating jointly
with the Great Northern, will try
to put through a railway line from
Republic to Marcus by way of Cascade, and also one from Grand
Forks to Vancouver.
It is reported that a big deal lias
been closed hy James Breen, representing himself nnd n New York
syndicate, whereby he secures the
control of tbe 5,000,000 shares of
the Dominion Copper company.
The owners of the Dominion
Copper were Mckenzie and Mann.
the prominent Canadian railway
contractors; Hon. (i. A. Cox of Toronto, .1. Boss, a mining mnn of
Spokane; Robert .luffrev of Toronto, Hugh Sutherland of Winnipeg,
A.J. Roberts of Spokane ami U'.T.
Smith of Greenwood.
It is understood that the new
parties in control will at once beciri
active development and that a smelter will be built to smelt the ores.
It is said that some point on the
Kettle river will he selected as a
site for the smelter. The idea seems
to be to use the ores of the Republic
with the Boundary, as they together produce a perfect self-fluxing
product. The properties owned by
the Dominion Copper company consist of tbe Brooklyn, Stemwinder,
Idaho, Standard and Montazuma,
all adjoining, in Phoenix camp.
The Brooklyn has been developed
by a shaft 250 feet deep and 2000
feet of drifts.
The development of the Stem-
winder consists of a shaft 300 feet
deep and 700 feet of drifts and
crosscnting. The Brooklyn and
Stemwinder are provided with
small plants. The vein of tbe?e
properties is crosscut for over 60
feet and carries high values in gold
and copper. The payshoot has
been exposed for 500 feet on one of
the levels. The Dominion Copper
company also owns tlie Rawhide,
in Greenwood   camp,   which   has
been developed by-100 feet   of tunneling.
This information, taken in
connection with what the Vancouver correspondent says in another article, and what may be
read between the lines, proves interesting to us of the Boundary,

timation that he must kill himself.

With 65 polling places yet to
hear from, it is cohceeded that Mr.
���Galliher is the winner at the present time by about 100 votes over
Mr. Foley, and about 400 over Mr.
McKane.. The total vote .cast is
reported at nearly 9.000. Mr.
Foley, almost single-handed,
against the ablest men of both the
old partite made a most j.al ant
and successful fight. He not only
"had a powerlul opponent in the
person of Mr. McKane tn meet, but
he had the great army of the government beneficiaries to contend
against, including the ablest men

The labor vote did not stand pat
in Grand Forks, but that is a hotbed of officialism, then again that

for that reason it sought government favor in exchange for votes].
But the banner polling place was

for Galliher, who will prove himself an ingrate if he does not recognize that precinct by a substantial

Last week Thursday, Mrs. J. H.
McDonald discovered that a gold
watch belonging to her husband
had mysteriously disappeared from
a work basket on the Bitting room
table of her residence. The matter
was kept quiet for a few days and
a still hunt made, as it was thought,
owing to a strong suspicion as to
the direction the watch had tiken,
that proof would soon develop,
which would result in the recovery
of the watch. Sure enough, the party who "found" it, became frightened, arid made arrangements to
have it return to its rightful owner.
Three different stories were afloat
that the watch had been found in
as many different places before it
was returned to Mrs. McDonald.

The most recent shining specimen of literary directness which
has come under our notice recently,
is a letter addressed by an Australian partisan lo the politician
whom he assisted to eminence, hut
who, on reaching his high estate,
forgot the poor man on whose
shoulders he had risen. The Australian wrote as follows:
Deer sur: You're a dam frnud
and you know it. I don't care a
rap for the billet or the muny eather
but you could hev got it for me if
you wasn't as mean as muk. Two
pounds a week ain't any more to
me than forty shilling Is to you.
hut I objekt to bein' made an in-
firnil fool of. Soon after you was
elected by my hard workin' a feller
wanted to bet me you wouldn't' be
in the House nioren a week before
you maid an ass of yerself. I bet
him a Cow on that as I thought
you was worth it then. After I got
your note snyin' you declined tn
ackt in the matter I driv the cow
over to the Feller's place an' told
him he'd won 'er.
Thatsorl I got by hnwlin' myself

a man's pride but you inger him in

The Camber of Mlsei.
TheChamber of Mines recently
instituted at Rossland, is generally
designated as the Rossland Chamber of Mines. This is a mistake
says theSilvertonian, and is a name
which the promoters do not wish
attached to it, as the Chamber is
intended to embrace all the mining
districts in southern British Columbia, and is only located at Rossland
by reason of the idea of its establishment having been conceived
there.. The aim of the promoters
is to enroll as members all mining
men, smelter operators and claim
holders in the district und to give
n<> one section prominence over another iu the reports to be Bent out.
There is room in the province fur a
Chamber of Mines which will furnish reliable and up-to-date information of the progress of the mining industry to the press of America
and Europe as the newly created
