them are having their outfits prepared
now and when they get their "stuff" to-
gether it is quite a different equipment to
that of the average tenderfoot. The old-
timer will take along n good pair of rubber boots and a pair of leather shoes
adapted to thut. elimute. Hut his main
footwear is heavy moose hide moccasins
with heavy felt insoles aud medium
weight woolen socks. His underwear will
consist of a close woven suit of silk or
mixed cotton and silk, to ho worn next
to the skin. Next to that ho will huve
lhe besl quality of medium weight wo.den
underwear ami over that he will put a
heavy suit of woolen or mackinaw; over
all he will put a well made suit of asbestos tanned sheep hide trousers impervious
lo water und wind. This is his cold
weather rigging. As spiring approaches
liis apparel will he removed, suit at a
lime, until he only wears his summer
garb. Two outlits of this kind i-s alt he
will take.
In the place of blankets for winter use
and for use on the trail, they will take
fur rubes made from the skins of the
Arctic fox or wolf. These robes can he
purchased at from $50 to $100, and weigh
froni IM to 20 pounds und contain more
warmth than a dozen heavy blankets. In
extremely cold weut lier, while nn the

with only blankets. The perspiration
pusses into tlie folds und thoy freeze still"
and no amount of them will keep one
warm. In the summer, or when iu permanent eiimp or eithin, they are useful
and almost indispensable.
The old-timers do not use sleeping hays,
as they say they can't "jack knife" in
thein, and that is one of the essentials of
keeping warm iu lhat country.

Tlie Alloc Mine.
Notwithstanding the low price of silver
Manager T. \V. JJu/./.o has been able to
make the Alice mine iu Butte, Mont., pay
dividends. The president of the company,
Mr. .1. V. Walker, in tlie annua] report
issued a few days sinec, says: The year.
considering everything, wus a fairly prosperous one for the company. We had to
deal wilh a very low price on silver bullion; the average price at whicli silver
bars sold on the market was .50-104 per
line ounce, being ,0(11437 per line ounce
lower thnn the average price in IStiti. The
receipts for the sale of bullion and ore
amounted to ,$">f>0,-l74.47. 1 am pleased
(o state that the company's mines and
mills are in yood condition. A great deal
of work was dine in the mines to keep the
same in good condition, und the Cornish
pump was kept running continuously in
order to keep the water down lo tlie 1000-
foot level The 00-stainp mill was run
throuyhmit the year, except for stoppage
for necessary repairs, etc. The hoisting
works of the Alice mine, also the Magna
Cliarta ami Blue Winy, were kept in operation nearly the entire year. Tlie Magna
Charta, Magnolia uud Paymaster mines
were run only a purl of the time. For the
information of stock holders I have attached to this report a statement of dividends paid from the commencement,
amounting to $1,0^5,000; also statement
showing the discount on silver, -amounting iu $.1.7.'10,7H7.4H, eoveriny (he same
period, fn this connection I would stale
thnt the. discount on silver lor the year

The latest news from lhe great horseshoe
on Salmon river, Idaho, where the Horseshoe Placer Mining company is working,
is that they are in 100. feet with their
ditch to turn the channel of llie river, and
(he work is progressing lo theft1 entire
satisfaction, This is a mammoth undertaking, being no less than a proposition
lo cut 1820 feet- through the neck of the
horse shoe, turn the river through the cut
und mine nof only the gravel taken from
and along side of lhe cut, bul also the
Iwo miles of river bed that the changing
of lhe channel will Iny bare. Thc lime was
wheu the river took' the direct route,
afterward changing (o go around the
horse shoe, and tilling the neck with gold-
liearing gravel. So rapid is the stream
that the cut will sirike the stream 10 feet
below its present level, 1 litis furnishing
au abundance of full for miniug. The
hill across lhe neck U high, being so
s(eep thut only 80 feet was run hefore the
cut became a tunnel, and it will continue
to be tunneling until (lie work is almost
. completed. The walcr will he introduced
gradually, a flume being put in, and all
the available gravel of the neek washed
through it. When Unit is no longer practicable the whole river will bc turned
through the tunnel—or cut it. will then be
—and the present bed of the river will
he mined. The gravel so far laken from
llTe ent and tunnel bas run from 00 to 70
cents per cubic yard, uu iininiint that has
gone far towards paying llur expenses of
the undertaking.
Tlie KellofHK Tunnel.
'l'he Kellogg tunnel being ruu by the
Bunker Hill and Sullivan Mining and Concent rating company from near their mill
to the mine, is in over 1000 feet. When
completed it will bo nbout two miles long.
It was thought probable that new ore
bodies would he found while the tunnel
was being bored, but thus fur there has
been no sign of ore, although it is getting
well under the hill lying between Ward-
tier and lhe south fork.
l'ureliiiNe Price of Ihe JONle.
The dividend which holders of Josie
stock have been anticipating from the
money paid over on account of the purchase of the property hy 'he British
America Corporation will not be paid this
mouth, Possibly there may he a division
of Hie fund next July, but as there was
a general understanding thut a payment
lo the stockholders was to be mude iu
March, thc people who hold Josie shares
may deem it wise not to build up hope
again until they have the cash in hand.
It was understood, though never definite*
ly slated hy the directors, lhat. the purchase price of the Josie mine was $.300,000.
Governor .Mackintosh has been quoted as
saying tlmthls corporation had contracted
to pay that price. There was a prevailing
Impression, which was never contradicted
until now, thut the price was "about 4-i
cents per share.** As the company is
sleeked for 700.000 shares, this figured up
$308,000. A circular has been issued lo
the stockholders this week ovor the signature of P, 13, Snodgrass, seerelny, conveying the information that the mine sold
for $201,000, This is tho. first information of an official nnture that has been
given to tho stockholders since the deal
was consummated.

visitor. So far no serious disorder has
marred lier history. Although lacking
thorough organization under lhe law, the
rights of all are respected, and peace and
order prevail. 'l'he first locations here of

years, since which time the development
has been steady and sure, and has re-

Bpeclal Correspondence.]
Although tbo rush to Alaska mny bo
said to have only just begun, a condition of uft'uirs bas already developed iu
Dyea and Skagway which promises to
disappoint tbo expectations of thousands of eager gold seekers. Tlie t rails
across the Chilkoot and White passes
are practically impassable because of
tbo frequent nmi severe storms, and
will not bc in good condition until
about tbe first of April. Tbo result is
tliat thousands of men and thousands
of tons of supplies and mining outlits
are crowded together on this side nf
the summit tnnl bavo already reached
such number and quantity ns lo create
u blockade.
It bus been generally understood
that it was foolish to go up to tbat.
country earlier than Maroh with the
expectation of crossing the passes, and
that one who did so would simply subject himself to a Ion., wait, to needless
hardships and possible sickness while
consuming supplies whloh should be
kept for service iu the gold lieldH. Not-
withstailding ibis fact, travel begun iu
January and lias continued through
February, an average of a steamer a
day having landed men and freight nt
Dyea and Skagway. Those who look
tbis early start did so because tbey
fearerl a blockade ami were anxious to
get over the summit, expecting tn wait
at the lakes for the opening of the river
to navigation. The blockade tbey
hoped to escape hns come upon tbem
and they are not over lhe summit.
-Many have spent a month of hardship
and toil and are worse oft' because of
it than are ibe newest arrivals.
There are not less than 30,000 people
in Dyea and Skagway euuampcd along
lhe trails ns far an Ihe weather conditions have permitted Ihem to advance,
only a few miles at the most. The
quantity of supplies, outfits, boats, machinery, etc., averages not lees than a
ton to each man. This average will
be kept up during the month of .March,
an.I by the first ol April, when the
work of getting over tbe summit will
begin in earnest, a moderate estimate
of the number of men and quantity ot
freight lhal will be assembled there Is
flu,ouo persons ami 110,000 ions of
freight.
The only thing that has been accomplished on the Skagway trail to make
it more passable thun it was last summer bus been tlie building of some
small bridges, and some Improvements
on tlie road leading out from .skngway.
There has been a tramway project there
but no progress lias been made with it.
Tlie indications are tliat the Skagway
trail will not be materially better than
it was last summer, when it was nlock-
arlerl and rendered practically impns-
salde by 3,000 or 4,000 people and their
outlits. Of course, as long as the snow
lasts in the spring the trail will be a
better one than when the traveler has
encounter mud ami boulders, which
were such an obstacle a year ago.
As for the trail from Dyea, whioh is
tlio one experience has proved to be
the best, two tramways am are undor
construction for the transportation of
goods. One of these has a train railroad from Dyea to the base of the summit ridge, and an electric bucket system across tlie summit to Lake Linde-
niauii. The other hns two tramway
cables leading from the tirst and second divides ami ending at Lake Linde-
niumi. Connection between the last of
these and Dyea will be made witli
wagons and pack animals. Neither
of these enterprise is ready for operation, and the possibilities are that tbey
will not bc before the first of April.
Wheu in complete operation, their combined capacity will not exceed 400 tons
per day. Assuming tliat by the use
of pack animals 100 tons per day oould
be taken over the White pass from
Skagway, this leaves the total capacity
of all facilities provided for both passes
at 500 tons per day. Tbis means Hill
days lor transporting 60,000 tons that
will be accumulated there by the lirst
of April. In other words, accumulations could not be cleared away before
the middle of June, The probabilities
me, however, that during Ihe months
of April and -May au equal quantity of
new freight would demand attention.
lu this cnleiibition no allowance is
made for tlie freight which could be
taken on sleds by individuals and by
the ai.l of rings. This would he Inconsiderable, lu fact, wilh such a
miiHH of humanity and of goods, it
would be almost impossible for- freight
to be moved at all on those narrow
portions of the trail where the right of
way would be the subject of dispute
and contention, if people interfered
witli each other last full so as to cieate
a blockade on bolb trails with less than
6,000 people attempting to go over, it
does not. require a great Might of imagination to see ibe utter blockade that
would be created by 60,000 people.
One who intends to go lo Alaska may
well stop and consider whnt bis chances
are likely to be in such a mob, anil
whether be would not do better to seek
some other route or some other objective point than the Klondike legion.
Of course, transportation facilities from ',
the coust ports to Alaska have been j
provided for Dyea and Skagway, but
doubtless as soon as this blockade so
develops that intending gold hunters
demand to be tnken somewhere else,
steamers will leave tlie Dyea and Skagway routes anil seek other ports, such
as Copper river and Cook's inlet. At
theso places there is room for all. No

The C. P. R. and Corbin Contesting for Supremacy.
ABOUT AN   EVEN BREAK
The  Kettle   River   Valley   Railway
Charter Still Before the Railway Committee.
Up to the time ot going to press no
word ban been received from the sent of
war at Ottawa regarding tbe fate of tbe
Kettle River Valley railway charter and
as far as it is known in this city the condition of affairs are practically the same
as last week A letter received by Mr.
Cbas. Cumings, dated the l8tb inst.,
from Mr. Armstrong, states that while
tbe light is a very bitter one, the chances
are in favor ot Mr. Corbin being sue-
cessful. He also stated that if it could
have been brought to a vote at the meeting of tbe railway committee on tbe 17th
inst. that he would bave been successful
by a good-sized majority. But as the C.
P. R. was sparring for time it was a hard
matter to predict what influence would
be brought to bear on the m:*nbers between that time and the next meeting of
the committee. He was of the opinion
that it would be ten or twelve days before the measure would be brought up in
the committee again. Mr. Charles Hay
also received a private letter from Editor Ross, which substantiate". Mr. Armstrong's statements regarding the success of tbe charter and expresses the belief that Mr. Corbin will be successful.
Tbe Spokane Chronicle of tbe 21st
inst. containing tbe following graphic
account of the fight Mr. Corbin is making at Ottawa, for a charter; which fully
demonstrates the bitter opposition he
has to overcome in the event of bis being successful:
"D.. 0. Corbin is a fighter. This
month he is making the tight of bis life.
Single banded he is battling with the gigantic monopoly that rules tbe norib
half of this continent with as despotic
sway as the white czar rules the north
ball of old Asia. If the comfortable
millionaires wbo draw the dividends
and rake-offs from the Canadian Pacilic
could choose one man In all the world
to be annihilated by some painless process there would be a unanimous vote in
favor ot the quiet railroad president
from Spokane.
No trouble is feared as to securing all
the concessions needed from the United
States congress for tbe proposed railway to tap tbe Boundary Creek country
and connect with the Spokane & Northern road. President Corbin indeed,
need not have visited Washington al all
to secure these privileges.
But over the British border tbe fight
is growing hotter ever day. Every Canadian Pacific official, every dependent,
every editor owned by the great railway, is clamoring for the suppression of
the American line. That tbe people of
the Boundary country want tbe railway,
tbat it is needed by them as badly as the
people of any mining district can nee.1
a road, is a matter of absoluiely no interest to the great monopoly.
MET THEU  FACE TO FAtE.
At Ottawa lasl week President Corbin
met bis enemies face to face. The Kettle River Valley railroad bill biougbt a
notable gathering to the railway committee room. Messrs. Blair, Sifton and
Tupper were present among the members. President Van Home and other
C. P. R. men were present to oppose it.
Messrs. Bodwell, Corbin and Ross were
there for the bill, as well as well-known
G. T. R. officials, which de-dre to tap
the district. E. V. Bodwell explained
the bill. He said tbe Corbin system bad
expended already $1,200,000 in southern
British Columbia. He denied that the
road would take trade from Canada to
the States. He Said Mr. Co rbin bad no
interest in any smelter in tbe United
States.
Sir William Van Home spoke in opposition to tbe bill. He asserted that
this road would take a hundred million
dollars out of Canada in ten years.
What Mr. Bodwell had said about tbe
trade was humbug.
Mr. Bodwell jumped to his leet: "No,
'tis the truth."
Sir William continuing, said the Canadian Pacific was not a rapacious corporation, as it was granted the Canadian
Pacilic this year would build under thc
Columbia & Western charter from Robson to Midway, a distance of 100 miles,
Mr. Lister asked: "Have you a subsidy?"
"No," replied President Van Home,
''nor have we asked for one."
Referring to a complaint from Kootenay against tbe Canadian Pacific, Sir
Wm. said: "I do not say tbat tbe
C. P. R. was never guilt of overcharging or unjustice sometimes, but I defy
any man to point out any case brought
before the company which was not
promptly corrected."
CORBIN DEFENDS  HIS FLAK.
Mr. Corbin then explained the local
situation, asserting that tbe road was a
benefit to the district. Only high grade
ores could be carried over lo the states
as smelting could be done cheaper in
Canada.
Chairman Sutherland asked why then
the Le Roi people built tbeir smelter at
Northport.
Mr. Corbin replied: "Because theie
is no water or land at Rossland available,"
Chairman Sutherland read a telegram
from tbe town of Nelson, warmly supporting the bill, One o'clock having arrived further consideration of the bill
was postponed until this week when
President Corbin will again meet bis
enemies.
Victoria's cold sholder.
On the same day, away over on the
west coast of tbe continent, another battle for the new road was taking place at
a meeting of the council of the Victoria
board of trade. Mr. Wollaston, a real
estate broker of Grand Fork;, was given
the privilege of addressing the council.
He complained of the action of the
board of trade in opposing the charter
for Mr. Corbin's railway, pointing out
tbat this road would be of great advantage to his town and surrounding interests.
Tbe members o| the council ejpiesied
ieg-et that Mr. Wollaston hsd not pre
senled his case earlier as the bonrd bad
already renched a decis on on lhe m-it
ter, and ibe question could not now very
well bo reopened. It was also considered doubtful if the arguments wbi. h
tbe Grand Forks delegate bid to offer
would in any way change the opinion of
the board.
THE GOSI'F.L   OF    ISOLATION.
Here is a sample of the arguments
used by thc Canadian Pacific to defeat
the charter. It is an editorial from the
Vancouver World:
"In the in'erest of the <*on-t cities and
tbe trade of Canada generally, i: is 10 be
hoped the federal government and the
house of commons will s'enuously refuse to grant any railway concessions to
aliens whose avowed object ii to divert
a trade which legitimately belong; to
the people of Canada into foreign channels. This will be the case sho'ild ibe
request ol the promoters of the Spo
kane and Northern railway for a char-
tor enabling them to consttuct a line
from the boundary into the heart of the
Kettle River distiict be granted. The
government and the members of the
house ol commons will not be true to
themselves or the dominion if Canada
if they yield an iota of the peoplts heritage to foreigners. There must be no
surrendering of our national rights lo
those whose aim is to despoil our fair
province of natural resources placed ai
our disposal by an A'l-WiFe Providence.
Th.t the passing of this bill will result
in the building up of Spokane Falls and
tbe American smelting industry cannot
be disputed. Will a liberal administration stultify itself by allowing this to be
done? Let the government and the
people's representatives id this as in
previous similar cases stand by thier
guns no matter what may happen to the
foreigner!"
Rossland Alright.
At a meeting of the Rossland board
of trade held last Saturday evening the
following resolution was unanimously
adopted:
"In viow of the opposition of the
boards of trade of Victoria and Vancouver and other parlies to the granting of
a charter tothe Kettle River Valley railway, this board desires to reiterate its
former position io the matter, and to
urge upon the dominion parliament that
none of the reasons that have been put
forward against the granting of the
charter should be allowed to stand in the
way ot the opening up of the great
Boundary district, which would be done
by the construction of the railway in
quesiion, and the secretary of this board
forward by telegram a copy of this resolution to the minister of railways and to
the member at Ottawa, Hon. Hewitt
Bostock."
This resolution was presented hy Mr.
A. S. Goodeve and was passed without
a dissenting vote, which shows that Rossland is all right and that her heart in in
the right place. If Rosslaml should
ever get in a position where her merchants should make an effort to control
the trade of the Boundary country this
action of the board of trade should be
remembered and every dollar's worth of
goods that can bc obtained in that city
should begot there. The Miner believes in helping thosewho help you and
has no hesitancy in saying tbat it is the
duy of the merchants in this section to
see that the merchants of Rossland are
not overlooked in this respect.

A Special Rate of $1.
It seems that the residents of Greenwood
are as bad about starting railway reports
as the people of this city. Everybody
that comes over from there has a "cock
and bull story" to tell about the progress that is being made there in railway building. The latest report is that
the depot has been located and that the
first train is scheduled to arrive in time
to bring in a crowd for the celebration of
tbe Queen's birthday, and a special
rate of $t. for the round trip has been
made from all parts of the district.

DISTRICT OF  OUR  OWN
The   Grand   Forks   Board   of  Trade
Objects to Being Added to the
Trail   District.
A special meeting of the bonrd of
had* was held Thursday afternoon to
consider a communication from the
lit undary Creek Mining and Commercial association, relative to the division
of lhe Fust Killing ol Vale.
In lire absence ol Ihe president and
vice-presidents Mr. Chas. Cumings
moved Mr. Jas Addisr.n to the chair.
The following lette-and resolution from
the Boundary Creek Mining and Commercial association was then read by
the secretary, who slated that he had received the same the day before and had
taken thc liberty to call a special meeting of thc board to consider the same.
At a meet ng of the Boundary Creek
Mining and Commercial association held
in the City of Greenwood on the 161b
day of March, 1898, the following resolution was passed:
That Whereas, it is the intention of
the Government of liritish Columbia to
bring in an act for the re-dislribution of
Britiih Columbia into electoral districts;
and
Whereas, the electors of the southeast
portion of tho Ea t Riding ol Yale district consider that tlie large increase of
electors arid the growing importance ol
lioundary Creek district, warrants the
dividing of the s.yid riding; and
Woereas, through the press of the
Province wc observe that the delegation
Irom Rossland request a subdivision of
the electoral district which would include Boundary Creek as part of the
Trail Division, we emphatically protest
against any such division. Therefore
be it
Resolved by this association, that in
their opinion your honourable body
should divide the E.ist Riding of Yale as
follows: Commencing at the intersection of th.ii Simiik.imeen river wuh the
49th parallel; thence north so as to include Dog lake; thence cist to the western boundary of Kootenay district; and
that copies of this resolution be forwarded to Hon. J. H. Turner and Donald Graham, Esq , M. P , lor this district. Thomas Hardy, President.
J. P. Haiilan, Secretary.
Mr. Addison srated thc he had heard
something relative to the matter tbe
evening before he left Victoria, that a
deputation appointed by the city council of Rossland had been in Victoria in
lhe interest ol a proposition to fc-rm a
new electoral district to bc compose:!
of Rossland and the basin of the Kettle
river, as far west as Greenwood, thus including the gold copper belt of southern British Columbia in one- electoral
district. This Mr. Acidisnn wis of the
opinion would not be satisfactory 10 this
so.:tion,as it would have a tendency lo
keep the Kettle River valley from having a representation in the local house,
and for that reason was heartily in accord wiih lhe resolution adoptod by the
Greenwood a-sccialion,
Mr. Chas. II iy spoke in f.ivoi* of action being taken in the matter, and expressed ibe opinion that we should stale
in very plain language, to the government our disapproval of any such a division of our country. He then related
the result of a conference that Mayor
Wood of Greenwood, Mr. Addison and
himself had had with Premier Turner,
during a recent visit to Victoria relative
to the redistribution of the district. Mr.
Turner, ie stated had giv.-n them positive assurance that East Yale would
have two rcpies-ntatives, according to
the redistribution bill to be handed
down by the government, ?.nd that tbc
Ruling would be divided by a line running east and west, at or near Pentieton. Therefore, he thought that it was
the duty of the board of trade to reiterate our desire in this respect to the govern ment and impress upon them foic-
lbly a redistribution on these lines is
what the people of this district want.
Oa the motion of W. IJ. D.ivey, seconded by F. H, McCarter the action
taken by the Boundary Creek Mining
and Commercial association was endorsed, and a committee consisting of
Mr. Chas. Hay, Mr. Chas. Cumings, E.
Spraggett, Jas. Addisioii and F. H. McCarter were appointed to draft similar
resolutions, a copy of which lo be forwarded to Premier Tumor, Donald
Grabam, and the Boundary Creek Milling and Commercial association of
Greeuwood.
The injustice of the action of the Victoria and Vancouver boards of trade,
relative to the granting of a charier to
the Kettle River Valley railway was
fully discussed.   It was shown that al-
vi-*t r\ with every prospect of the n'nn-   P"""""""""" ■«—™~™»
ber being largely increased in the   near  j HARDWARE. I
furu-e; .md
"Wbereas, It is reported that a delegate n from Rossland wjittd on the
government and pic-f-.-md a request
lhat all tbat part of Kettle Kiver and
Boundary Creek, including Christina
lake, Casc.de City, Grand Forks, Upper Grand Korks, Caison, Anaconda
.-md Greenwood City should be included in the proposed eleeioral district of Trail; and
"Wbereas, The interests of Kettle
River and Boundary Creek are not
ile-r:ical w th lhat of Ro.Bland and
Trail Creek, owing to the want of any
direct communication, w*e th-riefoie
strongly protest against anv p-ir. of the
present electoral district of East Yale
being included in the proposed Tra;l
division, and consider that to do so
would be perpetrating an injustice. Be
it therefore
'•lii.solv.d, That, in the opinion of
thin meeting, thc pres*.*nt electoral district of Eust Y.ile should be divided
into two electoral divisions as follows:
"The South Easterly, or K ttie River
division to commence at tire interscc-
rion of tlie"Jj.riniikaineeii river with thc
internrr'ionai boundary lin-\ thence
northerly so as to include D..g lake,
thenco ea-terly to the western boundary
of Kootenay district."
The meeting then adjourned.
