Columbia & Western Survey
Being Rushed.
BUILD    IN   THE    SPRING
Heinze's Path Is the New Gateway
Across the Divide to Christina Lake.
Trail, Aug*. 31—The survey of the
Columbia & Western from Trail to Pentieton has excited much interest in all
the camps of tlie district. Tbe rapidity
with which it is proposed to push the
work will see all thc topographical and
other maps completed before winter
closes, so tbat the work of the construction can proceed in the spring*. Twenty
thousand acres of land per mile is the
subsidy which Mr. Heinze will receive.
The entire distance to Pentieton is two
hundred miles.
Heinze pass is the new gateway across
the divide to Christina lake, through
which tbe Pentiction road will be surveyed. It was so named because Mr.
Heinze's engineers discovered it, and
thereby overcame the greatest obstacle
in the 'construction of the entire road.
At thc same time it made accessible a
country which had hitherto been considered almost useless for railroad pur-
Foses, because of the high mountains.
n fact, the Canadian Pacific railroad
surveyors at one time reported it as im-
passable.and did not even outline a prop-
able route through it. The lowest pass
they succeeded in finding was seven
thousand five hundred leet, while
Heinze's engineers discovered an open
ing which represents a climb of only four
thousand feet. The whole country is a
succession of hills, and a large portion
of it is altogether unexplored.
Most Difficult Portion.
It is a peculiar break in the mountains,
running in the opposite direction fiom
the one sought, tnat will let the Pentieton road through. From Robson the
C.iiumbia river turns from its northeasterly course and runs almost eiue west for
perhaps 8 milts before it takes a course
northwesterlo for the same distance,
broadening into what is called Lower
Arrow lake. From ibis lake to Christina lake is a distance of about jo-nii'e's,
and just in the center of this arena is the
divide from which flows Dog creek, to
the northeast, entering Arrow lake, and
McCrea creek, to tbe southwest, into
Christina lake. It is along these streams
that the most difficult pottion of the
Pentieton road will find its grade.
The Canadiau Pacilic railroad engi
neers, instead of following the south tributary of Dog creek, ran their line
along one running almost due west, with
the intention of reaching Kettle river,
but the high grades were in the way,
and no pass short ol seven thousand five
hundred feet could be found. Heinze's
men made two trips with better results
Naturally they were looking for an opening in the mountains east and west, but
instead they found one running duo
north and south. They called it Heinze
pass and it is thirteen miles in lengtb.
When tbe mouth is reached a sharp turn
is made, and the distance is retraced on
the other side of the mountain, until the
head of McCrea creek brings tbe road
on a gradual decline to Ctiristina lake.
Then tbe most dithcult section of the
whole Pentieton road is covered, and
the road runs down Christina lake to
Cascade City, across Christina creek,
and along tbe north bank of the Kettle
river. The North Fork is crossed and
the road will then run th ough a comparatively rolling country until Pentieton, thc destination, is reached.
A glance at the map makes this round
about route seem almost unnecessary,
because the old Dewdney trail runs direct from Rossland to Cascade City, at
the foot of Christina lake, in almost a
straight line, and the distance is only
eighteen miles. But it is not so smooth
as it looks, and a clo.-e examination reveals ihe fact that a tramway was the
best that could be built because of the
steep grades, and this would necessitate
quite a number of switchbacks.
Pushing the Survey.
Efforts will be made to complete tbe
survey in less than four months. There
will be two parties ot perhaps eighteen
men each, and they will commence surveying from thc summit, in order lo
finish that portion first, and thereby
avoid the heavy snows, Then the line
from Dog creek to Robson, a distance of
about sixteen miles, will be surveyed,
thus making a direct line from Trail to
Pentieton. From Robson to Trail the
rails are now being laid to a standard
gauge, and it has been stated lhat as
soon as the work is completed the tracks
to Rossland, a distance of 14 miles, will
be widened. The ties are already laid
for a standard gauge track, but some of
the curves will have to be straightened,
and there will bo more or less grading
to do. Tbe undertaking will involve
quite a little expense, as heavier rails
must be laid.
Five Years Time to Build.
Mr. Heinze has five years ftom March,
1896, in which to complete the road to
Pentieton, and for it, under the charter
of the Columbia tic Western, he will receive a subsidy from the government of
twenty thousand acres of land for each
mile of road, or all told, for the two hundred miles, four hundred thousand acres.
One of the survey parties is now at Dog
creek, in charge ol Engineer Sullivan,
and as soon as they are under wav he
will return and organize the second
party,

The McEwen Bond Thrown up and
gMr. Harrison Secures One.
Last week the report wis current upon
the street Chat the bond recently taken
on tbe 15. C. in Summit camp by A. L.
McEwen bad been thrown up, and all
manner of reasons for tbe abandonment
of tbe bond was giveu nearly all of which
had a tendency to give the property a
black-eye. It is now stated that Mr,
McEwen'6 principal*;:, the Mines Selection company, of London, England, on
being advised of his action in bonding
the property for £60,000 and putting six
men to work developing it, did not approve of his action and instructed him
to throw up tbe bond. Tbe exact reason lor this move on the part of the
Mines Selection company has not yet
been made public. No sooner had the
announcement been made public that
the bond bad been thrown up, than A.
11. Harrison, ol Greenwood, who also represents English capital, tooic up the
bond dropped by Mr. McEwen. The
bond is a three months working one and
be now lias ten men at work on tbe pio-
perty. John Keough, one of the original owners of the claim, and who has
charge of the work, was in the city
last Wednesday, and reports tbe shaft
down to depth a of 35 feet and every thing
looks more promising as tbe woi k proceeds. He says that men are now at
work erecting a bunk and boarding
bouse, blacksmith shop and making
other improvements.
No  Meeting.
There was no meeting of the city
council yesterday owing to there not being a quorum, Mayor Manly being absent in Rossland where he hai been for
the past five weeks, Aldcrrcan Hop-
worth having gone to Greenwood, Alderman Duford was also out of the city,
while Alderman Davis went out for a
bike ride.
Freights and prospectors can always

In face of the fact that some of our
citizens bave lost faith in tbe future of

railro.iri lo sta-t building thn way th's
I season, the fame of the rich mineral deposits of the North Fork and. lhat section tributary thereto, is being spread
near and far. As a result tha attention
of capita! is slowly but surely bein directed this way, and there is hardly a
week passes 'nn: some deal is closed for
the bonding or purchase of property in
this district. Less than one month a*;o
a working bond for £60,00,0 was secured
by Mr. A. L. McEwen, art experienced
min ing engineer, act. it; for tbe Mines
eclectic:! company, of London, England, on the li, C.claim ;n Summit camp
and who at once put six men to v.-.-rtt
opening up the property. This deal was
followed last week by another nearly as
gieat ii magnitude, whereby the tion,
Joseph Marttn,ex-M. P. and Mr. kimilb
Curtis, both of Rossland, acquired the
St. Elmo claim situated on Christina
lake on a working bond of S5o,C.*00, of
which a percentage was paid in cash at
the time of the sale, balance in six and
twelve months; with a conditional clause
tbat work is to be prosecuted ou the
property continuously until the bond is
lifted, and now comes the announce*,
ment this week, of tiie sale of i>.e Christina blnim, situated on the east side oS
the North rock, nearly opposite where
Btorrn's creek empties into that stream,
*,.. Ro si..*,.*..! parijes, wio have, already
awarded the contract for the erection of
a 50-ton cMorina ion plant, on the
property, to be in running order and
ready fur operation in the early spring.
What more evidence is necessary to
convince the most skeptical mind that
it is only a matter oi a 1 hort time before
! an extensive pay roll will be established
.throughout the district, which is the
foundation for prosperity in every community.
As toe Christina claim is ibs only free
milling proposition yet discovered up
the North Fork, a short sketch of its location and the circumstances whieli led
up to us sale might be of interest to
our readers.
THE CHRISTINA CLAIM
was located about oc,e year ago by
Mftsrs. Hagen aud Hagelberg, ot this
city, who shortly alter making toe location, started work developing tlie properly by running an open cut across tbe
ledge, lor tbe purpose of determining iti
width, which proved to bea decomposed
grey quartz well mineralized with gold
and silver, and in general appearance
and character seemed to be identically
[ ihe same as the camp McKinney ort. and
tbat found in the celebrated Cripple
Creek and Bouldei districts in Colorado, Testa made from the 01c demonstrated the fact that it was free milling
and concentrating. In the cany part of
the winter, through a numb* r of sam| les
sent 10 Rossland the attention <,t Mr,
John Repass,'a mining ni n and promoter of Rossland, was attracted to the property. Aftei searchi ig inq iryba i becn
made regarding it, in Febru iry last, lhat
gentleman made a personal examination of tbe property, and he wa ■ so well
pleased with the showing that an op
tion on the properly was secured,
Several hundred pounds of ure we c at
onco shipped to Rosslaud (or experiment:!! purposes. Assays were obtain
<y I horn the best assayers iu different
pails of the country both in Canada
aud United States. The returns received
from the diffetent assays were practic l-
ly the same, there being only a small
fraction of a cent difference in the
values obtained. The lowest assay was
$12.21 and the highest $70, with an aver
age of jyq tier ton in all values.
ORGANIZE A COMPANY.
With the assurance ot lhe best expert mining men in lhe country that
the ledge was large and lhe favorable
returns received from those wh * had
tested tbe ores for values, Mr. Repass
experenced but little trouble in associating with him* elf men of capital who
were willing to lake chances on putting t'ueir money in the proposition.
The result was the organization of the
Kettle River Mining and  Development

the boat mode of treating it. In his report he states that the ore could be
tre ted succesfully by three diff rent
processes, viz: 'flu stamp m I , cblori-
nut on, or the cyanide process; owing to
the fineness of the gold he recommended tbe adoption of tbe chlorination process by which lie claims that 95 per ce t
of the gold and 99 per cent of the silver
can be saved at a co t of from two to
three dollais per. ton. He a so adds
tbat this ore ii tbe best adapted to
cl li rination of any he b is ever seen in
all uis experience. Mr. Girvin his
built and opt ated a number of the largest plants of tine character in different
parts of Colorado, including Cripp'e

With this issut G. Earl McCarter se-
/srs his business connection v/ith the
MINER, and will hereafter devote his
energies to making the Reservation lie-
cord tbe leading paper of Stevens county, having associated himstjf with Mr.
Rube Hull In tbc publication of that pa-
?er' 	
The Mayorality bee has commenced
;o buz/ and up to date it is humming in
the ears of no less than six or eight ot
our cilitens.
T;iE division of Yale district will give
the East Riding a representative in the
provincial legislature, which it is undoubtedly entitled to.
Some one has been so unkind as to
intimate that theeity council'has gone
into a combination with the lumber dealers, and point to the sidewalk by-law as
grounds for the imputation.
Justice Drake, of Vicloda, sentenced Joseph Williams to two years imprisonment for stealing a glass ot beer.
Strikes us that is a pretty gcod sized
"jug" for such a small amount of bcotie.
Now that it i*. practically settled tbat
the voters list is not closed, ns it was

TRIBUTARY TO GRAND FORKS.
The (Ireenwood Green-eye says:
"We do not like to be too inquisitive
but the .Miner might name the camps
which are naturally tilbutary to Gra.id
Forks.''
Alright, neighbor. We do not like to
be too molest so we will again quote
the Green-eye.
"lioundary Creek district contains so
many important camps tbat it is almost
impossible to make even a passing reference to all of them in one article."
These lioundary Creek camps which
are tco numerous to mention, are naturally tributary to Grand Forks. Then
there are the numerous camps of tbe
North fork, which would take too much
space for "even a passing referince to
all of them in one article.'1 In fact all
the camps whose streams empty into
either branch of lhe Kettle river are
naturally tributary to this place. This
fact is so apparent to everyone with ordinary comprehension that it is unnecessary to consume time and space in
demonstrating it.
Titf. announcement is made on tbe
best of authority, that Mr. Hewitt Bos-
tock will not leavo federal polities for
the provincial areuia. Mr. lie-stock ie evidently a believer iu tho old adago "A
bird in tho band is worth two in the
bush."
WE QUO PARDON
It is very seldom that the GRAND
Forks Miner permits anything to slip
into its columns for which an apology is
afterwards necessary, and it is unprofessional to apologise for anything unless the need is very urgent. Inst week
however we insulted the leading paper
of the province and now wish to make a
retraction, and undo as far as possible
the damage that has been done that
paper in the estimation of tbe residents
of this section.
We stated last week tbat the editor of
thc (ireenwood Green-eye was a'two-
i bit otfshoot of the Victoria Colonist,"
' We should have said the Victoria
Times, as it was that sheet which had so
little respect for the reading matter appearing in its columns as to allow the
present editor of the Green-eye to furnish "ccpy" for it. We wish to abjectly
apologise to the Colonist and to compliment the Times upon escaping from the
all! ction with which it was recently har-
rassed, in the person of "it," the editor
if the G teen eye.
Tun Rossland viner has changed
hands. Fred C. Moffatt as umes lho
editorial and business management of
the paper, having purchased the interests formerly held bv H. W. C. Jack-
sar», John R, Cook, J. B, McArthur aod
John R. Reavis.
The Klondyke pilgrims of a few years
hence will no doubt be able to ride to
Dawson City in a Pullman car. The
government apparently realising the
urgency' of improved transportation
facilities to tbe upper Yukon already
has engineers in the filed With a view of
jolving the problem of a feasible route.
Miners and' prospectors will ploauo
bear in mina that wo want all tbo mining news obtainable, and when you
come in from tho hills and hava any'
item of nowa, do not ovor look us liko a
"white chip," but como aud give it to
us, The Miner, alway.i at home, will
bo pieaued to havo you call any time.
The Minei; is in receipt of an excellent map of Northwestern British Columbia, Klondyke and the Yukon
country, issued cy the publishers of tbe
Pipvince, Vancouver. Beside giving
the different routes leading into the
Klondyke district it contains much valuable information to those contemplating
the trip.	
The Vancouver World is authority for
the statement that "thorelaticns existing
between Mr. Turner and his colleagues
are of the most cordial and harmonious
eharacter," and adds that Hon. D. W.
Higgins, as speaker of the house, is not,
nor has he any right to be, consulted by
the cabinet as to the policy or the affairs
of the country generally."
The Miner takes pleasure in congratulating the citizens of Greenwood
in electing Mr. Robert Wood the first
mayor of the city by acclamation. Mr.
Wood in a clear headed conservative
business man and will no doubt handle
the affairs of the city in a manner that
will be entirely satisfactory to his constituents and reflect credit upon himself.
Too much importance cannot be at
tached to the good results tobe obtained
by havinf an exhibit at the corning Spokane fruit fair. In no way ctn tbe advantages ot a mining district be so
easily brought b.jfore the public at such
a trifling expense. We have any
amount of ore that will bear inspection,
and it should be taken to the exhibit and
advertised in tbe best  possible manner.
The attention of the city authorities
is called to the dangerous condition of
the sidewalk on south Riverside ave.
It is nothing more than criminal carelessness to leave it in its present condition. The walking of ol the end of
the sidewalk last Monday evening by a
lady of the city, who was seriously injured by the fall, should be a warning
fo the proper authorities, who by seeing
that the evil is remedied at once, will
np doubt save the city one or more
•hmage stilt1*: ...
£.*..*.. ,;   . /a *.
Since the price of wheat has reached
the dollar mark the leading newspapers
on the other side of the line are telling
how it happened. Of course the republican papers credit it to the McKinley
administration, all of which may be true,
lhe democratic papers attribute it to
crop failures and famines in other countries, which is not necessarily untrue.
The populists are pattiim* themselves on
tbe back in the belief tbat it is due to
the influence they are exerting in politic-. Even this may be true. But there
is one thing c:**tain. IJ we had several
thousand bushels of wheat and it was
selling at jji.co a bushel, while these
American papers arc trying to locate
the cause of the high price, we would
slip around the- corner and "sluff it off."
Now that it is practically settled that
a railway will be built into this district
within the next eighteen months, np
one will mike a mistake in investing in
real estate in Grand Forks as ihe day is
not a great way off when it will be THE
mining camp of the Kettle river and
lioundary Creek districts. There is no
reason for anyone to express doubt as to
the future of our city as a few days spent
in the mines tributary to us will be sufficient evidence to the most conservative
business man that we are bound to come
to the front ai a min ng center and distributing point. Now is the time to invest.
CROW'S   NEST   PASS.
ihe Work of Constructing the New Railway Being V'igerously rushed.
The news from the base of operations
of the Crow's Nest Pass railway indicates that the work of construction is
being pushed ahead with all possible vigor, says the Montreal Gazette, and
that tbe tracks will be laid to the summit early in December. Mr. Flaney,
manager of construction, as yet directs
operations from McLeod,where he will be
joined in a few days by the vice-president after which the two will make a trip
of inspection over the portion of the
road already built. Work on the loo
miles of road now under contract is progressing rapidly, and it is reported that
along the new line there is one living
string of men and horses to be seen, all
on the move, shovelling, digging, levelling, and in tact, everything looks favorable for the early completion of the road.
Not only will it open up one of the best
markets for Alberta, but it will be a
great boon for the cattlemen living in
the south country. It is also said that
every day the alien labor law is being
enforced, and that Uncle Sam is getting
back some of the medicine with which
he has been dosing the Canadians at Detroit, Buffalo aud elsewhere. It is now
estimated that 2,500 men are at work,
and surveying parties are now strung
out to the toot ot Kootenay lake. Large
gangs are also clearing the right of way
from rbe Pass to the crossing of the
Kooten iy at. Wardner which, it is sa'd,
will be reached by the rails by the middle of next summer.
Pleased With Their Trip.
Hon. G. B.Martin and Mr. Leonard
Norris came up on Tuesday from the
Lower Okanagan and Kettle river dis-
tistricts, and Mr. Martin will probably
leave for the Nicola section today on his
way to the coast. They were much impressed with the great development of
ming interests which bas taken place
during the last few months in the lower
country. The speak in high terms of

excesses in training and practice for I
contests,   whicli   unless cheeked    and
brought down to a rational basis may
do more harm than good.   Many young
men  seem to think that because the S
practice of athletics is   favorable   to I
health the mora they can get of this
practice the better.    This is    an    er-
roneous impression, for it is as possible
to overwork in athletics as il is in busi- |
ness and a great many young people do
themselves   injury   by   their excessive
zeal in tho practice of competitive exercise.
In this line of physical activity, as ip I
nny other, there is a limit to human
capability and it is possible to develop
the muscular and nervous systems to !
the detriment of the heart and lungs
or of the digestive system. Iiul: the eon- j
ditlons under which athletics arc usually practiced are. so favorable to the
maintenance of health nnd vigor that
few persons who were sound at the time [
of commencing their athletic efforts
have injured themselves by thc practice of these vigorous exercises. It is
true that a certain number of young
men who were distinguished for their
supremacy in certain athletic events
have died young. Hut the number of
young men who are now practicing
athletic exercises in this country and
appearing in public contesLs is very
large, as many as 600 or 700 entries being recorded in some of the. great city
meetings.

NOTICE.
OriRfnril Idea**. Advanced by nn  In.
telllgont Savage <»"* Tender Years.
There is nothing more original than
the early composition of an Indian boy.
The following example is  still   pre-;
served  as an  instance in   whicli   its
savage author epitomized    in   uncon-j
scions parable and with excellent humor the relations of the red man and .
his Wliite brother, says tlie New York ,
Mail and Express.   It ifl entitled: "StOr j
ry of tiood' Bird and Bad Cat."    The j
essay follows:
"One  day, bright day, a little bird '
happy  and  stood   on  a log and sang
nil day long.   That, bird doesn't know I
anything* about cat, She thinks noliody j	
is near to her.   But behind the near j   ^   L
log old sly eat. is watching.   She want,
to eat for supper, and she thinks about
stealing all tiie time.   The old cat came, j
very slowly, and by am! by she go after j
the little bird, but, she does not see him i
and sang loud, again.    She saug luud
like this:   'I tun always iry to do what
is right; wen I. evor die. I go to Heaven.'
That bird said these all words, and I
shall not forget tho little bird what it j
said, and these all words it suli and
after two or three minutes go died; the
cat jumped and catch anil kill, eat all
up  esce.pt  little   things    from   bin.!,
wings,  legs or skin, and. that, bird is
glad die because slue is very good bird. :
The little bird has lust time sang and
very happy  was  the. little bird after
that.    1  think the. old cat have good
dinner and bnppy just the same as the
biird wait at first time."

BLACK TAIL !N TROUBLE AOAfN.
Suit Commenced for One-half Interest by Allen R. Blaokburn.
The well known   Black Tail mining
chum situated in Eureka camp, seems
to have iis full share of trouble. Not
long since,this claim was jumped by Ed
Tittsworlb, formerly of ihis place and
who disposed of bis interest in the new
location to Chas. Cumings. The
members of the present Blai k Tailjcom-
pany rathjr than tie^the**property by
going inlo litigation, over theUegality of
the jumping, through their attorney,
Mr. Ludden, of Spokane, negotiations
were entered into with Mr. Cumings
who transfered any claim he mi^ht have
on il*e,.property to_ tbit gentlemen for
fU-JQ.
As the owners of the property have
got through congratulating themselves
upon gelling out of one legal controversy, it finds itself in another; brought
bp Ailan R. Blackburn, who sets up a
claim in equity for a full half interest
in the property.
Tbe title of the action, which was filed
in Spokane last Monday, is All in R.
Blackburn against the Washington
(jold Mining company, John Welly,
W. IL Williamson and E. S. Babb.
Blackburn alleges that prior to Febu-
ary ig, 1S96, he and Welty entered into
an agreement to prospect and locate
mines on the Colville reservation on
equal shares, with the understanding
tbat all claims located [on the 20th of
February should belong equally to
them and each should have a half interest. Tliey entered the Eureka mining district, and o:*i that day among
other locations made was the one upon
the ledge which was then given lhe
name "Black Tail,'' Blackburn and
Welty together put up the necessary
stakes and the location notice, but
Welty alone signed tbe notice, Blackburn's name being put on as  a  witness.
Blackburn says tbat he supposed his
partnership rights would be respeclc**!
and protected by Welty, according to
tbe terms of j their agreement, but tr
alleges, on the twenty-ninth of February, nine days afier the original location, Welty tore down the original notice and in its place posted a notice
giving the names of John Welty, E, S.
B.ibb and W. II. Williamson, as locators. This notice was (ilea with,'and
recorded by the auditor of Stevens
cou'-.ty. Blackburn alleges that all
these parlies knew ot his claim lo a
half interest, but were scheming to
cheat and defraud him.
Shortly after the second location thc
defendants, Babb, Welty and Williamson, with other persons, organized and
incorporated thc Washington Gold
Mining company, and the three locators, joined by their respective wives,
gave dce*is to thc corporation, conveying tbe Black Tail claim. The complaint alleges that at the time cf this
conveyance the corporation was <"d-
vised of the half interest claimed by
Blackburn,] and knew that B; bb and
Williamson had no interest in the
property except such as tbey might
have acquired out of Welly's half interest; that on this account the execution and delivery cf deeds was without
consideration and, so far as the plaintiff is concerned is null and void.
Blackburn therefore asks the court
to declare that the claim was discovered and located by phintiff and defendant Welty; that Welly. Babb and
Williamson acquired no right by virtue
Of tbe attempted local ion made Febru-
2,, (890! tbiu'ihe transfers to the corporation were without consideration
and made with the knowledge of plaintiff's right to a half interest und finally
that the defendants be ordered to transfer py proper deed a full and undivided
