COLUMBIA. B. C,  APRIL   1,   1899
SiiiiDiil Gold and Copper Mining Cwnpany—
Directors Elected,
The first meeting of the directors of
the Summit Gold and Copper Mining
company, limited, was held Tuesday
evening. The directors of this company are, Wm. C. Fox, Toronto; E. L.
Heer, A. W. Ross, S. L. Graham and W.
C. McDougail of Columbia. Messrs.
McDougall and Ross were appointed
president and vice-president respectively,
and John D. Spence, secretary-treasurer.
The head office of the company is at
Columbia, and the development of the
company's properties will be prosecuted
vigorously. It was decided by the directors to offer a block of the company's
treasury stock for sale at an early date,
and the secretary was authorized to obtain certificates, and such office fiitures
as the company mav require.
This company owns six mineral claims
two the "Main" and "Vanguard" in
Summit camp, the "Athol No. i" and
"Murphy" in Wellington camp, andthe
•'Canada" and "Swan" on Sophie mountain in the Rossland district.
Work is at present in progress on the
"Mala" in Summit camp. A shaft jo
feet has been sunk near the north east
corner ol the claim, all in highly mineralized vein matter which assays from
$3 to ?6. The lead upon which this
shaft was sunk was cut about 4°° feet
farther north along its sUike by a cutting on the C. & W. railway, which
crosses the "Main". In this cutting,
where the Summit Gold and Copper
company have also done some work, the
lead shows up for a width of about loo
feet, all heavily mineralized, and carrying gold, silver and copper. Two
hundred feet farther west, on the "Main"'
ground, another huge ledge has also
been disclosed by the railway work.
This lead is seventy feet between walls,
the formation being diorite and porphyry.
The men employed by the Summit
Gold and Copper company are now at
work on this lead, as it has been deemed
advisable to ascertain the most suitable
point at which to commence development .work on the property before heavy
permanent work is undertaken. As soon
as this has been satisfactorily determined,
a permanent working shaft will be sunk
and the property put into shape to commence shipping with the least  possible
The  Athol   and   Murphy  claims   in
Wellington camp are properties of great
merit.    Considerable exploratory   work
has been done, and assays as high as
$65 oo per ton obtained.   A  wagon road
has been almost completed to these claims
and when finished a carriage can be
driven to the ground from Columbia in
one hour. There is no reasonable doubt
that the Athol and the Murphy will
rank among the great mineral properties
of the Boundary country.
The company also owns the Canada
and the Swan on Sophie mountain,in the
Rossland district. These- claims are
excellently situated, near the line of the
Bed Mountain railway, and are in the
vicinity of a number of properties that
have already shown up Satisfactorily.
The Velvet, Victory-Triumph, Umatilla and other well Known properties are
also located on Sophia mountain.

one million dollars, in OHe dollar shares.

here to Columbia, authorised 7th January
last, has now been notified to all offices

supplies have been received here bearing

official post office directory is issued
only every three months, and the last

the change of name was made. The

Bawl*** Rumour*.
Interested parties have succeeded in
making a few citizens of the lower town
believe that negotiations are seriously
proposed for some sort of a partnership
arrangement between Columbia and
Grand Forks.
The statement is absolutely and willfully false. It is circulated fora purpose.
No one who has any knowledge of the
situation can credit it for a moment.
Columbia has no grudge against Grand
Forks and wishes that town no harm
whatever. But our people are bent on
managing their own affair*, bearing their
own burdens aud developing the resources of their own town.

Perhaps you have never heard of
Grand Valley. Yon cannot find it on
any map, and only a stray westerner
here and there remember that it ever
existed. That is tbe most telling comment on its history.
But back in 1880, Grand Valley pios-
pects were of tbe best. It was in Manitoba, on the Assiniboine river, and was
the principal point between Portage
La Prairie and Port Ellice Steamboats
plied on the river and landed goods and
passengers at Grand Valley, making it
the point of supply and disturbutiou for
all the settlements in a wide stretch of
country. Its population was not large,
there was no, boom 110 excitement.
Grind Vi ley was toitentto handle the
trade of all the surrounding district, ana
to grow up with the country.
In 1881, there came a change. The
Canadian Pacific was laying out its route
through Manitoba westward and. the
survey line passed through Grand
Valley. The importance of this fact to
the little town was so obvious that it
fprang into sudden activity. . Its people
were jubilant Buildings began to spring
up here and there and people looked forward to a time when the fine land of
western Manitoba should be occupied by
an energetic farming population and all
that r.cb agricultural district should
hok to Grand Valley as its commercial
centre. Later events proved abundantly
that the wealth and future prosper ity of
tlie neighborhood had not been in the
least exaggerated; an important town did
indeed spring into being, having that
wealth and prosperity as its chief sup port
That Grand Valley is not known today
as the second city in Manitoba is due to
one drawback, and one only. But", that,
one made its success impossible.
The site of the town was flat and low,
on the banks of the Assiniboine river.
Its position exposed it to periodical overflow. The railway company rightly regarded this as a fatal objection. It reconsidered its original plans, refused to
locate iu buildings on the site first proposed, carried its line through the town
and placed its station on a higher
plateau, just a mile and a half to the
west, and named it Brandon.
Grand Valley's disappointment was
very bitter. Deputations failed to convince the company that it should disregard all considerations of natural advantage, convenience and expense; and
in the end the settlement had to submit.
For a time the steamers still ran there,
and it seemed that the old town might
retain a portion of its trade. But with
the first train that ran to the new station,
that   vain   hope died forever,  and   soon
Grand Valley passed out ol existence.
It was in the fall of 1881  that the first
passenger train ran into Brandon station.
May of that year had seen the first tent
put upon the site of the new town.    N« t
a house, not a building of any  kind, was I
then in existence there.    Torday. Bran-1

towns of   Manitoba,      Grand    Valley,
which  she so  mercilessly   supplanted,
does not exist stall, even   as a   village.
Its site is now a.farm.
Even if the railway had placed its
station in Grane Valley, there niight
have been a question as to the town's
future, on account of the physical disadvantages of the site. But given a
low lying flat subject 10 overflow as
against u higher plateau, the railway's
choice seemed inevitable. And when
that choice was once made, Ihe result
was not for a moment in doubt.
In such cases, one is compelled to
recognize the operations of natural lawn.
One cannot ignore them. To attempt to
disregard them results invariably in
financial disaster.

The Graphic Claim Sold to a Wall Known Spokane Company.
C. L. Hoffman, the Spokane mining
broker, closed a deal for the purchase of
the Graphic claim, in Summit camp,
from E. A. Bielenlurg -of Greenwood.
says the Spokesman Review. The consideration is $5000 cash and a block of
ssock in a company to be formed. This
claim lies in the heart of Summit camp
and is bounded on the west by the Sum
mit mine, one of the principal properties
in camp, and on the east are the Oro
Denero and Emma mines, also well
known properties.
As far as prospected.by surface open
cuts, there have been proved to exist two
well defined ledges. Tbe No. 1, traced
from the Little Giant claim, lias been
prospected on the Graphic ground for
800 feet. It isan eight-toot ledge, carrying quartz with iron sulphurets and
oxidized iron and copper stain. The ore
from this ledge gives values on the surface of Sio in gold, copper and silver.
The No. 2 vein comes out of the Summit ground, running east through the
Graphic. This ledge is 20 feet iu width
and one of the strongest in camp. It is
a quartz and iron lead, and on the •Summit claim free gold was often found in
the workings near Ihe side lines of the
Summit and Graphic. This ledge is
said to assay as high as $70 in gold and
copper These two leads lie parallel to
each other and about 600 feet apart
Mi'. Hoffman informed the correspondent that his associates will immediately
let a contract for a crosscut tututei which
w.ll give a depth of 200 feet on the No. 1
vein where there is an excellent tunnel
If we are of so little importance why
do the Grand Porks board of trade
lose so much sleep over our application
for incorporation? And why are they so
anxious for us to go under their sheltering wing? Oh no Grand Forks, you are
a little too slow for a live energetic town
like Columbia to associate herself with.
The Grand Forks Board of Trade and
City Council are the most inconsistent
outfit we ever ran across. In their organ they laugh at the audacity of Columbia doing a metropolis.such as they claim
to be with their waterworks, churches,
banking facilities, $300,000 assessment
roll and a big debt, any damage. But in the next breath they beg
and pray the lieutenant-governor-incoun
cil not to grant our application for incor-
as it will greatly injure the credit of the
City of Grand Forks. What very funny
folks there are in this world.
Latest From the Winnipeg
Mr. D. F. Mcintosh, the manager of
the Winnipeg Gold Mining company,
was in the city this week. He brought
with him samples of ores from tbe drift
on the ore chute recently discovered on
the 300-foot level. It will be remembered that a few weeks ago a blind lead
was encountered at the 300-foot level.
Drifting was continued on this ledge.
At60 feet the character ot the,ore
changed considerably. The new ore-
samples of which were left at the Bank
ot Commerce—is much richer than that
taken from the ledge. The gold and
copper values are  mutually increased.

line of the claim. Two of the compartment will be four feet by four feet
'dgbt inches in the clear and the other
four feet by five in the clear. It will
be timbered in the best and most sub

permanent working shaft. A winze has
linen ordered and will be on the gronnd
by the time one becomes necessary,. If
the inflow of water becomes too great to
handle with, a bucket a steam hoist will
be put on and also a pump. Tbe property is certainly one of the best in the
camp, but heretofore the management

Reasons Why This Site was Chosen by Our Syndicate.
It is one ol"tlie most perfect uatur.il   inland   townsites on   this continent, being   a   level   pnirie
- surrounded., by-beautiful mountains rich iu gold and copper. ...<■■
lu its neighborhood there is a large extent of fertile agricultural land on which grain and fruits can ■*
grown in abundance, superior in this respect to any town in the Kootenays or in the Southern Vi.le
There are no low flats on our townsite annually subject to overflow.
Mehind it am, large mining camps traversed by enormous bodies of mineral, wonderful in their size and
containing high percentages of copper with appreciable gold values,
Experienced prospectors and miners predict these various camps will inside of three years develop into
the most phenomenal iu tbe world's history,
The camps directly tributary lo this town are WHITE'S or CENTRAL, WELLINGTON, SUMMIT
uaiup.i, enough according to present prospects to make twenty Kosslunds.
Adjoining tbe town there i» a large supply of timber, such as ne, fir, ta naraek and cedar continuing
mi the North Fork.
In the neighborhoo'i are superior clay beds suitable for brick and tile making, as well as good lime and
other stone quarries   useful for building  purposes.
It. is rie lined tp bo the wholesale centre of the whole Boundary country.
Kor two years at least it will lie th^ transfer point for those going to or leaving
and other camps in the State ol Washington. ,
It will lie the great residential centre for Kooteitay and Yale districts, as there is room for expansion
and with good schools ami oilier adjuncts of civilization established the men who make theirmoney in the
various surrounding mining vamp- will erect their homes here.
We already have embryo water works fed by a beautiful sprinj eapahle of amply supplying a city of
20,000 people, after which wc buve a large spring lake on an adjoining mountain,as a further unlimited
source of supply.
In two mouths we will■;•,»•, e a complete system of electric lighting established.
Our streets can be easily graded and all other city improvements can be made at little cost.
We will shortly lie incorporated a.s a city when streets will tie graded, sidewalks built'and public buildings erected.
A smelter will be biiilf at a convenient point tributary lo our city.
This week all stages going from or to Bossburg and Marcus will connect at Columbia   with
those   going    to or •from Republic, Greenwood and all westerly or south-westerly points,so that  all
passengers will stop over at least one night. '
Th$ CIa5ses of Citizens we Want.
Men sober, steady and industrious, men with energy, quick to think and act

Arrangements have been eutered into (
by the Last Chance and Noble Five
companies in the Slocan, whereby they
have agreed to allow each other the use
of their tu»nels as soon as they reach
the boundary line of the adjoining property. The Noble Five will accordingly
carry on tunnels No. a, 3 and 4 of the
Last Chance from the points where they

where the claims abut»the World's Fair.
The Last Chance will have the use of

Noble Five, where it cut9 the vein at a
vertical depth of 900 leet. The Last
Chance will also have the crosscut in A
tunnel, where it strikes the Little Widow
ground at a depth of 600 feet, and will
have the use ot all intermediate drifts.
This news will come as a pleasant surprise to the stockholders of both properties, as it will result in th_" speedy and
thorough exploiting of the Last Chauce
veiu, which has already proved itself to
be one of the richest iu the Slocan. As
both mines are equipped with excellent
