SECOND   YEAR.-NO.   60.
GRAND  FORKS, B.  C,   SATURDAY,   JULY   3,   1897.
Plenty of Material [to Talk
About This Week.
Ths Vnloanio, Iron Oap and Wolver
ine Claims Cause a Big Stir by
an Attempt  Being   Made
to Relocate Them,
During the present week Orand
Forks has experienced the greatest ex-
'citetnent of its history on account of
the reported jumping of tho Volcanic,
Wolverine and Iron Oap Claims, the
property of tho Olive Gold Mining Co,
" The whole affair appears now to have
Settled down and vv'ith a few nloro days
to heal over the wounded feelings of
borne who *wero interested in the deal;
the town will again be as peaceful as
a happy family and the fow days df un*
test will be remembered only as a Cii-
bumber nightmare.
Tho Olive Gold Mining Co, was ln-
borporated August 31, 1890, with S. I*.
Bhope, of Chicago, president, John A.
Manly, vice president, Harry W. Treat;
Chicago. Bectetary, and Edward Blew-
felt, Seattle, treasurer. The trustees
named, besides tho foregoing, tfore Nels
L*ii*sen, of this city, and Thos, McCauley, of Midway.
The company was capitalized for $20,-
1)00,000 and the intention was expressed
bf proceeding at once with the development of the Volcanic; the most e*tten-
kive mineral deposit in the known
•A-orld. But all doss not seem to have
been harmony within the company; at
any rate the development of the great
ledge has been delayed.
The last sossion of the provincial parliament passed a law to tho effect that
incorporated mining companies would
bo required to pay an annual license of
$100 by the 1st day of July. The Olive
Gold Mining Co. failed to comply with
the provisions of this law and their
plaims therefore became vacant at midnight of June 30 and subject to relocation, or "jumping," as this is frequently!
ihough Incorrectly, designated.
. Wednesday night Chas. (timings
and Dave Woodhead went tip the east
■side of the North Fork to stake the Volcanic aud Iron Cap, and Geo. Cumings and Ed. TltsWorth went up the opposite Bide oi tho river to tako in the
,Wo|ve**ine. Both patties had a wet,
poW,night oil it, but the first succeeded
in putting up stakes on the Voicanic
pud Iron Cap, while the other two
failed to find the Wolverino but staked
the Moriilng Star claim by mistake.
James Seals, who assisted them in their
jvork, after daylight staked tho Wolverino for himself,
i On tho morning of the 1st, Dr. Aver:
ill, who is heavily interested in the
.Olive Gold Mining Co., became alarmed
as to the safetj of his intel'osts, and,
upon the advice of Gold t'ommissioner
Lambly that a day'B grace would be allowed to mining incorporations for tho
payment of thoir liconso money, drove
to Midway and took out a liconso for
tbo Olivo Gold Mining Co. This had
tho effect of placing the threo claims
in a position no they could not be
jumped or relocated, so that the stakes
tot by tho Cumings brother!*, Wood-
h»ad and Titsworth havo no effect
whatever on tho-*:laiins,
Tlioro havo been a great many rumors
piiculntod. regarding Mayor Manly's
••oncection with tho affair. Mr, Manly
was tOeli by a Miner reporter this
morning and spoke for publication as
i "I had good roasori to , believe that
certain parlies wore calculating to to-
cute thoso claims and wo had stakes set
bofore any one olso for our ow"n protect
tion. Tho fact is, tho company hasn't a
•loot! to tho property yet; it. is all .iu my
name, and if any one should jump the
claims it wouldn't hold, but to save
complications I had the stakes Bet, and
simply because I didn't tell every one
in the country about the plans, there
was somewhat ot a stir made about if.
. "And I want to say here that I am
emphatically opposed to claim jumping.
When a party willfully lets his licens'8
run out- the ground reverts to the gov-
3rnuient and any one can claim it.
That is not claim jumping, however.
}Vhen I have large interests I intend to
protect them, as it would be any man's
duty to do. The position of no member
of j the Olive Gold Mining Go, is'
-llianged. Mr. Larson, I understand, is
trying hit) case on the  street cornet's
and making some wild statements, but
he is as well oft as he ever was, and
there was no intention, in relocating the
claims, that any member of the company should lose a cent."
R.A.Brown, the original locator of
theso claims, whan seen by a reportff,
said; "You can say that I am BatiBfied
with the explanations that have been
made in regard to this affair. If I had
had a gun that morning 1 should certainly hare dono some shootingi but
since thoro has been time to consider
everything intelligently thero is at least
ground to believe that the course pursued might have resulted tor the best
for me. It is a hard matter to trust to
promises of friendship, though, when
there aro billions involved, and suspicions ate natural. There are circumstances In connection With this affair
that cannot be made public, bu t which
Would largely explain certain features
of the case. So far I have fo llowed the
advice of my lawyers and I shall depend upon them to straighten Up the
tangle. If they fail, then there will be
another course to pursue. I am oriiy
sorry that I eVor let the Voicanic go out
bf my own name.''
Mr. Larscb appears to have been the
most Seriously worked Up of any one interested in the affair. To a MIner reporter ho stated that he ovvns a quarter
Intorest in the company and that Mr-
Manly told him at 11 o'clock on Wednesday that a man had boon sent to
Midway with money to pay tho company's license.
As to the reason why, instead of pay-
ing the license it was decided to relocate
the Claims; the public will have to sur*.
mise for themselves, as no member of
the Olive Gold Mining Co. will tell, but
dcaieful review of tbe whole situation
would lead one to believe that had the
relocations stood and the company's license Hot been taken out, none of the
resident stockholders would have suf-
feted thereby.

Messers, Porter and Morgan, who are
driving a tunnol on the Groy Eagle
have for two days boen working in rook
that is very much superior to anything
they had previously encountered, and
if it keeps on improving at the present
ratio the completion of tho fifty feet of
tunnel will find som,e very fair ore exposed. The slide mattor appears to
bave been passed through and the formation is becoming more Eolid and more
heavily mineralized. Tho tunnel is now
in about 30 feet and next weok will witness the completion of the present contract.
it is understood however that an additional contract for 50 feet will be let
to Messrs, Porter and Morgan at once,
the company being extremely well satis-
tied with the character of the work and
ihe speed with which it is being performed. The Grey Eagle tunnel is
demonstrating that good contractors'
wages can be made in tho rock of this
country at a much lower price than has
heretofore boen figured pn.

Tho Rattler is located on the reservation about four miles this side of
Eufeka damp and was discovered by
Mose Burns and Henry Ellis While
prospecting for Mr. Van Ness. Two
hundred dollars worth of development
work has seen dene on the property
and tne ledge does not vary from four
feet in width between well-defined walls,
and the ore is the same value across the
vein; Mr. Van Ness stated to a MiicKs
representative that assays of thi rock

appearance of the ore this assay is pot

largely by it as Mr. Van Ness has ex

There are now in the city two gentlemen! A. E, Bennett and C. S. Greening;
whp have just returned from a most
arduous and interesting trip up tho
West Fotk of the North Fork of Kettle

representative Thursday, Mr. Greening
"We started from Grand Forks and
went up the North Forlc to Psbs creek

activity. A gentleman whose name I
have forgotten, haB taken up several

ever seon, and if b ne in 500 of tho ledges
makes a mine it will be a great mining
"From t'asB creek we struck across
to tho West Fork of North Fork and
went up that stream for several miles
where I am confident no man ha3 ever
boen before; we had literally to hew our
way aud for several days averaged
about two miles a day.
'•We wore out in all about 15 days
and it rainod for 13   days of  that time.

Surveys Being Made into the Boon-
Cheek District.
The Miner learns from an authentic
source that President Corbin of the Nelson and Fort Bheppard, Red Mountain
ways lias despatched a corps of engineers to Sheep creek for the purpose of
Biirveyfng a line from Northport to
Grand ForkB. It is said that Mr. Corbin proposes to take advantage of the
differences that exist between the promoters of the Columbia and Western
ant) Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern
companies to corral the trade of the
lower Boundary district. The route
that his engineers have heen ordered to
survey from j^nrthport is along Snoop
creek to Kettle river, thence past tlio
southern end of Christina lake to
Grand Forks. It is said that this is the
shortest route to the Boundary.—Nelson ^liner.

Bon't Ask The Earth,
An investor and manager of a development company, not unmindful of his
own interests, nevertheless makes somo
'good points in un interview in the Victoria Colonist.   He says*.
"Parties owning claims which they
have either located themselves or purchased for a song, should givo men with
capital a fair interest for thoroughly
testing lho value of tho claims, rather
than demand, as thoy aro doing now,
large sums of mon3y to bo paid for
what may not prove to be worth a dollar. The unwise policy of holder** in
..this regard is doing much to hinder
development in variotis parts of tho
province. The day is gone by—and it
is very fortunate for the real mining interests ot the province that it has—when
men aro willing to pay a large prico for
,a piece of mountain side which has no
evidence ot mineral beyond being some,
.where near a claim that has good showing and some stakes to mark its boundaries. I bad an experience the other
,du> which shows, however, that all
claim holders havo not.yot learned this.
In a certain district I had representations as to tho groat value ot a claim
a few u ilea frotn ono of tho mining
towns, so with some other gentlemen;
including au engineer and tho intending vendor of the claim, visited it. lho
engineer found n,o ledge—indeed nothing for a long time but a littlo float.
After a time, however, ho did find a
.valueless stringer of quartz. This the
owner of the claim hud not seen before,
and immediately it was pointed out to
him his prico went up 100 por cent. It

States government, and a party ot eur-
veyo s are now in the field running tho
preliminary survey for tho samo. It is
said that two or three different routes
are under advisement, but it seems to
be the general opinion of those who arc
in a position to know, that it will comb
over what is known as liono Ranch
past*. It is understood that tho road
will be completed and ready for travel
about the lirst of September which
will be in timo for tho full and winter
business. The great kick on tho present routo tho reservation peoplo had
was the expense of a convoy, which had
to be sent through with every load of
freight for reservation pjints.
