THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Like  Milling Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, SEPTEMBER 9, 1899.
No. 44.
HAS FAITH IN CHRISTINA
t P. Rathbone, Noted Mhipg Engineer,
Has Thorooghly Investigated.
GIVES RECORD READERS HIS VIEWS
While He Is Conservative la Statements, Yet
He Believes tblt Section Will Have Some
Oireat Mines.
For the last two or three weeks
Edgar P. Rathbone, the noted mining engineer of the B, C. Mercantile & Mining Syndicate, of Cascade, who came here from England
for that-express purpose, has been
making an exhaustive examination of the ore bodies of the camps
in the Christina lake district. He
has taken; hiaE ftwnf time5 for this
and gathered his, own samples,
which has been tested .in the syndicates' own laboratory'-ih Cascade.
/The result of this careful examination is distinctly favorable to
this section. He believes, however,
tKat much depends on work, hard,
honest, well-directed, intelligent
work on the part of the prospector,
or development company. In
talking with a Record representative Mr. Rathbone sniij:
'"'.     Will be Some Great Mums.
'���My...special object in visiting
the mining properties in the Christina lake district was to ascertain
if there was sufficient evidence of
the existence of payable veins or
ore bodies, snch as would warrant
the permanent and steady progressive exKence of such * a town as
Cascade City, and I may at once
say, that I consider it would be
very bad luck, indeed, if, when
some more serious work is carried
out, there should not be discovered
at least one or two properties which
will be worked finally on an industrial paying basis.
"The whole country is highly
mineralized, hut it still remains to
be seen whether sufficiently high
values will be maintained to pay
all working expenses of say some
$15 or $20 and leave a reasonable
margin of profit. I have personally great confidence in the future
of. the district; and most certainly
c&n recommend capitalists.to investigate into its merits, hut under
present conditions would not advise anyone to pay too highly for
such a privilege.
#'I consider that a well organised
exploration company might do
well, especially if, with an efficient
staff and laboratory arrangements,
it were to systematically test a
number of claims, and thus prove
up some points where good payable
and permanent ore chutes existed.
Under present conditions, with
such an immense area to investigate, one cannot help feeling that
it is left very much to chance, that
i* for mere prospectors to stumble
on the rieht spot, whereas with
capital and organisation, much of
this wild and uneconomic work
could he avoided.   I would espec
ially recommend that more attention be paid to the probable existence of large ore bodies on contact planes between the dolomite
or magnesian limestone formation
and igneous rocks inhinding,
since in other mining districts it is
precisely under similar conditions
that some of the greatest discoveries have heen made, notably in Colorado/'
Opinion Is Conservative.
It should be remembered that
Mr. Rathbone is an exceedingly
conservative engineer, and is not
disposed to take chances. His reputation and standing in his profession is ample proof of this. He
does not specify the. localities he
thinks best of, for obvious reason*,
but particularly likes, the formation along Christina lake, and has
no doubt but that it will become
in time the scene of great industrial activity from a mining standpoint. It is more than probable,
though he does not give it out for
publication, that additional capi-
tal will be introduced shortly as a
direct result of his visit and investigation. If this is done���as
the Record believes it will be-1-
some of the best mines in British
Columbia will be found at t|e
very doors of Cascade. > '
Columbia Arson Caie.     ��  "    ���
Last Saturday's hearing of the
Colombia irrno^ cas��; hieldr beter*
Justice Rochussen at Columbia, was
held behind closed doors, but a full
account appeared in the local paper
nevertheless. It showed that the
burning of the Hotel Columbia was
evidently done by design.. Mullen,
Royce and Cameron were mixed up
in the crime, for the perpetration
of which the sum of $200 was paid.
The question is, who furnished the
money? Rumor has persistently
associated the name of ex-Mayor
John Manley, of Grand Forks, in
the case, hut so far there has been
nothing to justify it brought out.
An adjourned hearing is being
held today, but no particulars are
obtainable, further than that no
special sensations had come out up
to last night.
Increasing tbe Sawmill Capacity.
. John Earle, proprietor of theCas
cade sawmill, has ordered a sticker
attachment for his mill. The new.
piece of machinery will come from
Portland and is expected here in a
few days. On its arrival the mill
will he in shape to turn out anything in the shape of mouldings.
Lately the lath machine. has been
kept busy. This week Mr. Earle
shipped a couple of cars of timber
by rail to Grand Forks, hut the
rate is so. high that he will proba
bly employ teams in future.
Mrs. Donald McLeod gave an
enjoyable afternoon tea on Thursday to a number of ladies.
Mr. Hewitt Bostock's attention is
respectfully called to the fact that
the mail from Grand Forks to Cascade, due here Thursday morning,
did not reach our postoffice till 24
hours later.
TRAINS ON MONDAY WEEK
Passengers Will be Brought ii Every
Other Day.
SERVICE THREE TIMES PER WEEK
Definite Announcement by Mr Tye that Reg*
alar Traffic Will be Inauf anted on September 1Mb.
Last week's Record .stated that
passenger trains would be running
on the new railway into the Boundary in two weeks. This is literally
true, and was corroborated by Assistant Chief Engineer Sullivan
and Superintendent of Construction Jack Stewart this morning.
The following from Chief Engineer
Tye telle the story:
"We will take over the road from
Robson to Grand Forks from the
contractors some day next week,
and run, the first passenger train
on Monday, the 18th.' We will run
from Robson to Grand Forks on
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, .and from Grand Forks to
Robson on Tuesdays, Thursdays
and Saturdays. Will make connections with Crow's Nest Pass and
Rossland  trains.   Time  table to
.foiiow;':,, | ... ,  f. :������;
. This means, as stated in the last
issue of the Record,that trains will
leave Rossland and Nelson about
7 a. m., and on alternate days depart from Grand Forks also in the
morning.
The Rossland Record of Thursday says that the rate from Rossland to Cascade City is $5.95, and
$6.95 to Grand Forks, but it is
probable that passengers will have
to re-purchase tickets at Robson
on account of the road not being
turned over to the traffic department yet.
Next week some time the C. P.
R. inspectors will go over the road
as far as it is completed, after
which it will be turned over to the
operating department. . There has
heen rumor of an excu.roion of
Rossland and Nelson business men
to the Boundary on the first passenger train, but this will be deferred, as the requisite rolling stock
is not yet at hand.
Rambles Prom tbe Ralls.
By tonight the track will be
down at a point four miles beyond
Columbia.
There has been a shortage of telegraph poles this week, greatly delaying that part of work. The wire
will probably reach Grand Forks
some time next week.
Fifteen passengers dime in yesterday in a box car, and have no
wish to repeat the experience un
less they wear cast iron breeches
with cushion attachments.
The  track-layers   crossed    the
hridge at Grand Forks last Sunday
afternoon.   Columbia citisens pro
vided a small spread for the work
men, which was duly appreciated.

THE CASCADE RECORD
OANQ OF ITALIANS USE KNIVES.
Bat Fortunately No One Wm Damaged Be.
yond Repair.
Lust Monday night Officer Darraugh gathered in a number of Italians who got mixed up in a cutting
scrape near the railway bridge, over
the gorge. Incidentally, in the
melee, two or three of them were
chopped up considerably, necessitating several stitches by the contractors' surgeon
It appears that these sons of
sunny Italy, some of whom bear
the euohonious titles of Vestione
Gallo, Frank Scalzo, S. Piccolo, Joe
Garcia, etc., etc., were railway laborers, and had come down from
the camp, a few miles west of town,
to do some trading. On the return
they got into a quarrel as to the
wisdom of putting the hand car on
the track when a train was expected at any minute. Not agreeing, a
general carving match followed,
with the result as above stated.
Wednesday evening Justice of
the Peace Rochussen heard the case
and one of the men was fined $50.
Boat Race on the Lake.
Considerable interest is being
taken in the boat race, which is
scheduled to take place on the lake
tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.
The contestants are Frank Asprey
and Charles Sandner, both of whom
reside on the lake, and both of
whom are confident of winning.
The race is for $25 a side, but considerable money has been put up
by friends of the respective contestants on the result.
The course is straightaway for
six miles, from the foot, of the lake
to English Point. The steamer
Myrtle B. will be on hand to take
excursionists and accompany the
oarsmpn to the finish, and from the
interest, being taken there will be
a good many witnesses.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
It is estimated that $100,000 will
be spent on the Mother Lode smelter, to be built at Greenwood.

heen postponed for a week. The
case will probably be fought out in

served. The ladies of the town are
oordially invited.

BEAUTIFULLY WHITEWASHED.
Sometime since the Record called
attention to the unnecessarily poor
mail service generally prevalent in
the Boundary country, and especially at Cascade. Hewitt Bostock,
M. P., promised to look into the
matter and have it rectified if possible. The following, received this
week by the publisher of the
Record, shows that his investigation has not been thorough and
that we can expect no improvement:
Victoria, B.C., 2d Sept., 1899.
Dear Sir:���I have gone into the
matter of your mail service at Cascade and find that the mail bag
containing the mails from Rossland to Cascade was over carried
on three occasions and the bag con
taining the U. S. mail was over
carried on one occasion. With regard to the mail service and the
handling of postal matters in the
Boundary creek country beyond
Cascade I understand that it is as
satisfactory as a service of this
kind can be made.
Yours truly,
Hewitt Bostock.
Mr. Bostock in the above states
only a part���a small part���of the
facts. A dozen or a hundred citizens here can and will testify that
scarcely a week has passed in the
last three months that mail bags
were not carried through when destined for Cascade. If the postal
department records do not show it,
the case is so much the worse.
Postmasters all through the country know of this only too well, to
say nothing of numberless business
men, who have felt the inconvenience entailed.
It is also a pretty commentary
on our Canadian postal system to
have our member in parliament
admit, evidently after a conference
with Inspectors Dorman and McLeod, that the present poor system
"is as satisfactory as a service of
this kind can be had." It is no
palliation or excuse to state that
mails are likely to begin coming in
by rail shortly.
Mr. Bostock has beautifully
whitewashed the whole matter, and
gives not one atom of satisfaction
for a condition of things in postal
matters that is absolutely inexcusable. There is another Dominion
election coming, and voters have a
way of bearing these things in
mind.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Since W. K. Esling took hold of
the Rossland Record a week ago, it
has shown a vast improvement.
Automobiles are gradually getting westward, but none have been
seen on the streets of Cascade yet.
It is now given out that Jim Hill
will builil from Wilbur into Republic this fall. If this proves
true, the camp iB to be congratulated. ���
An Indiana editor publishes the
names of delinquent subscribers,
with brief biographies. It ought
to make interesting reading���for
the other fellows.
Mr. Rathbone thinks there is no
reason why development should
not reveal another LeRoi on the
Christina lake slope. He is not
alone in that opinion.
The Nelson Tribune does not
seem to admire the stylo of the
Greenwood Miner. The latter
ably-edited journal comes back
with a dignified retort courteous.
Both are excellent news vendors.
The opposition press asserts that
the political situation is becoming
intolerable, while the government
organs, for the most part, think
everythingis serene. One can take
his choice. The chances are that
a change is in sight.
No reduction has yet been made
in our railway freight rates���"construction rates" they are called by
courtesy. If the taking over of the
line by the C. P. R. will bring relief to our merchants, it is to be
hoped that it will come soon, and
not be deferred till the steel is laid
to Midway.
War in the Transvaal grows
more likely daily. A resident of
the South African Kepublic for
several years, recently in Cascade,
asserts that enduring and satisfactory peace will not come till the
Boers have been soundly whipped.
They will surely receive the chastisement.
It must be refreshing to the
readers of Nelson and Rossland
dailies to read dispatches that appeared the previous day in the
Spokesman-Review. This is the
press service furnished by the C.
P. R. telegraph people, and is away
behind the times. No wonder the
Kootenay dailies "kick."
Kamloops has been suggested by
the Standard, of that town, as a
good place for an opposition convention, and a circular letter has
been issued to that effect. It looks
now as though the Semlin government would have a strong organization to fight at the next election,
which is claimed to be not far off.
still silent as the tomb���most of
the miners having migrated. Step"
should be taken to compromise on
the eight-hour proposition. The
mines do not suffer by the present
shut-down, nor do the miner-, for
they move to other parts, but business interests are pretty badly
stagnated.
Edgar P. Rathbone, the mining
engineer, has been looking over
the mineral showings in the (Uiris-
tinu lake mining camps for a couple of weeks, and his impressions,
which will be found on another
page, should be decidedly encouraging to holders of promising
claims hereabouts. Mr. Rathbone's
opinion is worth having, be it
noted, as he recommended the purchase of the LeRoi  for $3,000,000.
Killed In Kimberly Camp
A terrible accident, with immediately fatal results, occurred at
Kimberly camp last Saturday evening, just as the men on tbe Vancouver^ owned by James Sutherland and J. \V. Nelson, of Greenwood, were going off shift. A
miner named David Condon hsd
lighted the fuse for five shots in
the bottom of the shaft, some 30
feet deep, aud climbed the ladder
to the top, when he missed a rung
of the ladder or slipped and fell to
the bottom. Half a minute later
the five shots went off, and death
was instantaneous. His neck was
broken, probably by the fall, his
jaw broken, and other injuries had
been sustained. It is remarkable
that he was not shattered to pieces
by the rock explosion. No inquest
was deemed necessary.
Condon was 42, yearB old and
single, and has worked for some
time in the camps about Greenwood.     	
North Side Sawmill Sold.
Last "Wednesday V. Monnier
sold the E. G. Thomason & Co.
sawmill, on the north side, to D.
Bailey, of Columbia, the negotiations being conducted by Major
W. H. Cooper. It is understood
thot the consideration was $3,000.
The mill has been taken down and
is now being set up at a point near
Gilpin's ranch, on Kettle river,
near the railway. The mill will
be used to get out lumber for use
in Columbia, where that article is
now a scarce commodity.

John Dorsey, formerly of the
Hotel Gladstone, is now located at
Hartford Junction, where he has
nut up a commodious hotel called
the Hartford. The point is where
the Phoenix and Winnipeg spurs
branch off, and consequently all
travel to the camps hy rail must
go via Hartford. Mr. Dorsey's
card will be found in another column.

BY THE WAYSIDE   |
Edgar P. Rathbone, the mining
engineer of the B. C. Syndicate, of
Cascade, who has been spending a
couple of weeks inspecting the mineral showings of Christina lake
camps, left yesterday for Rossland.
He will make careful examinations
of the East LeRoi, West LeRoi and
Columbia-Kootenay mines at Rossland for the directors of the British
America Corporation, who expected
to form separate companies for the
development of these claims. He
will probably return to Cascade
before returning to London, and
possibly take a look at the Similkameen country.
One of the object* of Mr. Rath-
bone's vihit here at this time was
to ascertain, now that the railway
building activity is practically
over, by which every town in the
Boundary country was more or
less benefited, whether the mineral possibilities were such as to
warrant a continuance of the extensive mercantile operations now
being carried on. Mr. Rathbone
informs the Record that he has
already heartily recommended to
his co-directors tn continue the
present establishments here, but
also to operate on an even more
extended manner, both in merchandising and mining. Coming
from such a source, this is a tribute to the solid hacking which this
city and district has in its hills of
wealth.
In regard to the letter of Hewitt
Bostock, appearing in another
column, and the editorial comment
thereon, it should be stated that a
cash penalty has finally been
arranged to be imposed on stage
companies that do not deliver
mails as per contract. This
should have been done long, long
ago. Had it been so adjusted, it
is pretty certain that most of the
causes of complaint would have
disappeared before this. As it is,
the service is beginning to be a trifle more satisfactory in the matter
referred to. May it continue till
all mails come in by- way of the
new railway.
: At the Spokane Industrial Exposition this yetir the mineral ex.-
h|bits will be given the 'place of
honor. They will not be put off-in
a; far-away corner as at previous
friiit fairs'* but this year the management is making tho mineral
department one of the strongest
attractions at the big show. Visitors who enter the tent <>n opening
day, the 3rd of October, will, first
be greeted by the mining exhibit
of, all the mining camps of the

Copper mountain, near the Similkameen river. Mr. Brown located
the Sunset in 1892. It has a shaft
43 feet deep which.exposes a solid
body of high grade copper ore. It
is claimed to be the greatest copper prospect in the country. The
consideration is $40,000, and the
cash has been paid over. 6
THE   CASCADE   RECORD
September 9, 1899
BOTH SIDES OF THE LINE
Notes of a Trip to Some of the Best
Camps.
BY A CONSERVATIVE MINING MAN
Republic, Toroda, Sheridan, Boole, Chesaw,
Bolster, Oro, Camp McKinney, Rock Creek,
Midway and Nelson, Wash.
Morris McCarty, of Bossburg,
who has extensive interests in this
section; was in Cascade last Saturday on a return trip from a leisurly
visit of inspection to a large number of mining camps on both sides
of the international boundary line.
He is a close observer, and feels
well pleased with his two weeks
tour, believing that, beyond a
doubt, in the district referred to
there are some of the greatest mineral claims on the entire Pacific
slope.
Traveling over the now much-
advertised Kettle Falls route to
Republic, the best of these properties, which are now well known to
the world, were visited, and the belief confirmed that there will soon
be some great ore producers in addition to the famous Republic.
Going in a northwesterly direction 12 miles, Sheridan camp was
reached, and the Zala M., owned
largely by Ross Thompson and
Col. Topping, was an object of unusual interest, and gave substantial evidence of being all that was
claimed for it. Toroda City, another promising camp, six miles
west of Sheridan, was next reached,
and north of this, also on Toroda
creek, was Bodie, where the formation is largely bluish quartz, and
although the values cannot be seen,
they are there just the same.
Fro Bodie the route was to the
new booming towns of Bolster and
Chesaw, close together, on Meyert>
creek, and only a couple of miles
from the boundary line. Here
again is found the bluish quartz,
carrying good values. The Crystal
Butte has had a 10-stamp mill
running on free gold ore about
three weeks', the vein being eight
inches wide, and indications are
exceedingly. favorable. The Review is one of the best and has a
400-foot tunnel. The War Eagle
is working a small force in a 70-
foot shaft. The Wisconsin, Copper Queen and Mammoth are also
good, having copper ore like that
of Greenwood camp Chesaw and
Bolster are rivals, and are growing
fast. They are due south of Camp
McKinney.
The next stop was at Oro, 22
miles west from Chesaw. It is a
dull town, but three miles northwest iB the 10-stamp mill of the
Okanogan Free Gold Mines, which
is running steadily with good
results. The country generally
here is greatly broken up.
Anarchist mountain is to tbe
northeast of Oro, and lies on both
Hides of the boundary line. Immense surface showings were seen,
but up to the present little work
has been done. Some splendid
farming country is found in the
valleys, yielding prolific crops.
In another ten miles Camp McKinney, one of our oldest mining
camps, was reached. When it is
remembered that 200 men are at
work in this camp, a faint idea of
the development going on, ie
obtained. The granite is running
5 stamps, the Cariboo 20 stamps,
a mill is being installed on the
Waterloo, and the Fontenoy and
Minnehaha will also soon have
stamp mill. A most favorable
impression was had of the work
being done, and there seems to be
no doubt but that this will be a
great camp.
From Camp McKinney to Rock
creek is 12 miles and thence to
Midway 15 miles. The latter place
is rather qtiiet, but is building
somewhat, and hoping great things
from being the temporary terminus
of the new railway line.
From Midway the road swings
around into the reservation again,
some 25 miles to Nelson, Wash.,
the name of which has heen
changed to Danville. Near Nelson
on LaFleur mountain several good
properties are working. The British American Corporation ha*
seven men on the Copper Queen
and Comstock. Two shifts are
employed on the Brimstone, the
shuft being in 200 feet, and good
copper ore being found. From
Nelson to Cascade is -about 18
miles./

THE CASCADE RECORD
IN BUSY BOUNDARY TOWNS
Observations Made This week by a
Record Nan.
TOOK IN   TWO   SMELTER   SITES
Grand Forks, Phoenix and Greenwood are
all Lively���Citizens Have (treat Con*
lldence.
ThiB week a Record man, on the
hurricane deck of a nimble cayuse,
visited a number of the lively
Boundary towns, on one of his periodical visits. Of course, going
west from Cascade, the first stop
was at the town now being made
famous by Mr. Graves'smelter pro-
ject. A visit to the site of this enterprise showed about a hundred
men to work, the foundations of
most of the buildings having been
made, and activity prevailing at
the dam Bite and on the long flume.
Thus far the brick making is an
acknowledged failure, and it is the
intention to dispose of the poor
brick locally and burn better kiln?.
Grand Forks is growing rapidly,
although the summer dullness is
said to be felt in trade. New
buildings are going up all over
town and a general air of prosperity prevails. The location of the
smelter at that point has had a
crystallizing effect. There is still
talk of a daily paper there by
Eber C. Smith, of Rossland, but it
is said that he will not have the
first daily in the field It is generally admitted, however, that the
town is not large enough to support one daily permanently.
la Orowlof Phoenix.
After toiling up the 15 mile hill
in a drizzling rain the hurtling
town of Pheonix was reached, firRt
passing the snorting engines at
work ou the Winnipeg, Golden
Orown and Snowshoe properties.
Phoenix is, aR expected, a typical
mining town, situated as it is in
the. heart of the Boundary mines,
being literally surrounded hy snch
famous mines as the Old Ironsides,
Knob Hill, Brooklyn, Stemwinder,
etc. At present there is but one
hotel, Hotel Phoenix, that is running now. Five others are building or excavating. Several Greenwood concerns have branches there,
including the Hunter-Kendrick
Co., and Russell Hardware Co.,
with others preparing to build.
A restaurant, three hurher shops,
laundry, liverv stable, shoe shop
and a number of other concerns
are already dnine business, with
others promising to come in. The
town has a nnstoffice, church services, a public school, a newspaper
about to start and other modern
conveniences.
At present Phoenix is pretty
well spread out, as the Old Ironsides pmpertv in on one side, the
Rumbflraer tfayt in the center snd
tbe New York property on the
otbpr. At nres��nt the chief activity is bround Mr. Rumberger's
urnnerty, where the postoffice is
located, and which he is rapidly
TRttintr ready to place on the mar-
Vet, having at. last acquired the
utirface rights. The railway branch
is building into tbe town, about
250 miners are now employed in
the adjacent properties, and the
town is destined to become an important point.
Boundary Creek Metropolis.
Greenwood is undoubtedly the
most important town in the Boundary creek country, and its citizens
have sublime faith in its continued
supremacy. The definite location
of the Mother Lode smelter close to
the town will be of great benefit to
the place, and surveys have already
begun for the purpose of starting
work under Paul Johnson, the
superintendent. There is an evidence of solidarity and permanence about Greenwood that is
pleasing to the casual visitor.
Surrounded as it is by many rich
mining camps, with large reduction works at its doors, it cannot
fail to hold its own for years to
come, and the faith of its people in
its future seems well grounded.
The trip was an interesting one,
and gave an idea of the importance
that Boundary camps���one and
all���are assuming in the world of
minim. The heritage thatcitizens
of thi<> section have in the metalliferous hills is but just beginning
to be made known. Its future
cannot fail to show greater and
even more enduring prosperity.
Send It Back But

An ore body nine feet wide has
recently been encountered on the
Pathfinder mine. It runs about
$15 in gold and copper.
The Trail smelter iB reported to
have bought many thousand tons
of B. C. mine ore al $27.60 per ton.
The contract runs into big figures.
The 35-foot tunnel on the Royal
Canadian group, on the north fork
of Kettle river, will be extended
65 feet further, when crosscuttihg
will begin.
A tunnel is to be driven 250 feet
on the Bonanza, in Knight's camp,
to tap the ledge at 150 feet depth.
The assays from the ledge give $31
in gold and copper.
Randolph Stuart has acquired
from W. G. McMynn, of Midway,
his interest in the Oalumet-Hecla
group, adjoining' the Winnipeg,
thus obtaining a controlling interest.
The Republic mine management
has secured a rate of $5 per ton for
hauling ore from the mine to the
railway at Grand Forks. Formerly $25 per ton to Marcus was
paid.
What is said to be coal has been
located on the Laurier claim, on
the north fork of Kettle river, by
Robert Clark. Jay P. Graves, of
the Granby smelter, has secured a
half interest, and development will
be at once started.
W. A. Carlyle, superintendent of
the LeRoi and other B. A. C. properties at Rossland, has been offered
a salary of 5,000 pounds sterling
to act as superintendent of the Rio
Tinto mines in Spain. His salary
is now $8,000 per year, and he will
probably accept the new offer.
Duncan McRae, of Rossland, has
made arrangements to ship about
20,000 pounds of Gold Bug ore out
of the shaft to the Trail smelter.
Owing to the rich character of the
vein the ore is being sacked as it
comes out, and it is anticipated
that the values are sufficient to
pay for the cost of development as
it proceeds.
The new mining camp on the
east fork of the north fork of Kettle
river has been named Franklin
camp. It is north, of Christina
lake, and the formation is diorite,
porphyry, quartzite and lime and
some white granite. All kinds of
ore can be found. Frank McFar-
land is the father of the camp,
which is located 60 miles from
Grand Forks. It is thought to be
a good camp.
