'ERE THE SNOW Fl PES.
A groat future is shaping for Grand
Forks. It does not take a particularly
closo observer to note tho continued
accumulation of evidence in support of
tbis statement. The latest and greatest proof lies in the fact that an agreement has beon reached between, the
dominion government and Auguut
Heinze ol the Columbia tic Western railroad, for the building ot a road from
Robson to Pentieton. With tho provincial anil dominion governmental
Subsidies Mr. Heinze will have cash
"enough to assist very greatly1 in building the road. Tha proyincial government allows him i? 1,000 \>oi mile, and
just double this amount has boon
offered by tho dominion,' so' that for
every mile of track that ho lays he will
receive ?12,000 from governmental
sources.
Joining tho Crow's Nest Pass railroad
ou the east at Nelson, B, C, and on the
' wost making connection with the Shu-
swap & Okanogan system at Pentieton,
'thus tho Columbia & Weutern road
will complete a railroad system connecting tho eastern provinces with tbo Pacific coast and passing through the
heart ot the great mineral belt. Speaking of tho railroad proposition the Rossland Miner says;
* "In our coiigri[tiiluf.ioiiH over the building
Dl the Crow's Nost roail we should not forget
■the very Important work of building a line
Vrom the Columbia river to Pentieton, which
has bejn given to Mr. llejnze. This Is tho
hrst step itt' the securing ol a new Canadian
Hue to the Pacilic coast. Its Immediate im-
portanoo will consist In giving a railroad to
the Boundary mining oamps. Qrand Forks
V/ill have a railroad before tho snows of
'another whfteil come. 'This vvill give a tpe-
-tneii'lous Impetus to all the country west of
Hiisslaiul as far as Okanog'ati lako. flue can
nardly realize, what all this iueati3 to liritish
Columbia."
Grand Forks is indeed to bo congratulated. The aution of tbo dominion
"government marks an epoch in the history of this city, thu importance of
which cannot bo over-estimated, It
moans that mine development will be
stimulated to a point where a largely increased amount of oro will be produced
and employment given to a great many
miners. It wjll be an incontivo to claim
owners to take steps to prove the value
of their properties and mako mines out
of them if they contain tho mineral to
warrant their being called by that name.
In fact the great ijuostion of tho cje-
j*olopment of this district has been
hanging upon tho one point of railroad
transportation, and it has now become
a certainty thut thi:, important adjunct
jxWi not bo lacking much longer, but
that Grand Forks will havo a railroad

^ho city haB no means of resisting the

It is time that a voluntoer fire organization were effected, and the Miner
jvould suggest that a mass meeting of
pur citizeqs 1*0 held at onco and ways
and means devised whereby protection
to our roBidencos and business houses
piay be provided for. A volunteer
puoket brigade should bo formed by the
^election of a captain and such other

Every man und boy in tho city should
place his namo on the list and thon a

The waterworks bystem will not be in

bavo some means of fighting firo. There
are too macy good buildings in the city
to warrant further delay in the matter
of affording fire protection.
QREEN EYE.
Tho Boundary Creek Times in its last
it-sue sets up a horrible wail about the
establishment of the Grand Forks mining division, claiming that the boundaries weie established against the
wishes of a majority of the residents of
thiB section.   The Times must not for-
tot that the people of Greenwood form
Ut a small portion uf the residents of
tbjs diptricj. 'The boundaries of the
Grand Forks mining district are established in the most natural place for
then), the watershed ot the distrlot being
the most natural diyiding Jipa obtainable. Greenwood, Wellington,' Summit
and Pass creek are and always havo
beep naturally tributary to Grand
Forks, no matter what the residents of
the oth^r parts jf the district may say,
and the government [in establishing the
boundaries of the new division have
shown their appreciation of this fact.
Tho Timetf wail savorj somewhat of
green.eyed jealousy,

STAOB   ACCIDENT,
Breaking of a Bkakt. Results in W. M.
Pelky Being Seriously Injured.
Tho first serious accident of this Summer to tbe stago occurred Tuesday
night about four miles this sido of Tou-
lou's who ro the lirst cliingo of horses
from Marcus is made An exceptionally light load was on the stage, thoro
being only six passengers aboard. Two
of those, K. K. Peitser, a drummer of
Victoria, and W.M. Pelky, a passengor
braketuan of the Spokano Falls & Northern railroad, we:e riding with tbe diiver,
Chas, Mitchell, on the front seat. Four
miles from TouIou'b there is a stoep hill
in a canyon. When a boavy load is boing brought in tho passongorssometimes
walk down this and other places on tho
road, but Tuosday night Mitchell did
not deem it necessary on account of the
light load that any should leave the
stage.
Near the top of the hill tho brake
gave way and tho four horses, impelled
by tbo weight of tho ctago, dashed for
250 yards down tho steep bill. Mitchell
kept control of them and guided Ihem,
however, until ono of the reins of the
lead team broke, then they ran out of
the road and the Btago brought up
against a tro?. The three occupants ot
tho front seat wero thrown forward on
to tho horses. Pelky, who sat on the
outside, hai his left shoulder and collar
bono broken and was badly bruised.
The drummer strusk on hie head and
bo eBcaped without seriouB injury.
Mitchell also was unhurt and managed
to hold the horses. The four passengers inside the stage were badly
shaken up but none of them were hurt.
One of the front wheels of the stage was
smashed an 1 tho axle bent, but tho damages [o tbo vehicle were not so serious
as might have been expected considering the nature of tne smash-up.
Pelky was taken to Bossburg for
medical treutniont and Mitchell went
back to Toulou's for the extra stage
and a change of horses. The accident
delavod tho arrival of tho stage until 1
o'clock Wednesday morning.
Tho passon*»ors say that no blame can
attach to the driver, Mi*. Mit<Shel1, but
that on tho contrary ho displayed remarkable ability and nerve }n not letting the horses at any'time'get the best
of him. '

GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY
The Dominion  Government Will Give
Heinzo $8,000 Per Mile—Agree -
ment Begirding Crow's Nest
Pass   Road,
The most oncou raging piece of new B
ever brought to this city is that con-
* corning the building of tlio railroad
from Robson to this place, of which
thero is no longer any doubt. On Juno
2 it was given out in Ottawa that the
'Dominion government "had closed its
terras with the Canadian PaeiQc railroad company for tho t'row's Nest Pass
railroad. The agreement is ua folows:
- In the first place tho Dominion will
give 811,000 per mile to the Canadian
Pacific for a road from Lothbridge to
Nelson. For thia amount the company
will give valuable concessions. First of
all it gives a largo cut in rates on special artcles, of which it has handed ;i list
to the government. Take wheat, for
instance. The cut in rates on that
commodity will bo \% cents por hun-
"drod pounds next year and 1% more
per hundred the year following, milking
'3 cents in all per hundred. On fruit
goin-,' west thero will bo a cut of 33}£
per cent. On agricultural implements
there is a out of 10 per cent in rates.
The object is to make it easier for the
farmers. There will be reductions in
rates, and the cut rates will amount to
•nearly 8700,000 annually. The govern-
'ment will havo control of this list of
rates west of Port William.
Again, the company will give to the
government 50,000 acres out of itci land
■grant of 250,000 of' coal lands awarded
tf> the British Columbia Southern, This
50,000 acres will bo selected in Email
blocks, tho government having the first
choice of a block and the company the
second choico, on the checker board
plan. There will be no' monopoly in
coal lands. Besides this, tho company
cannot sell coal for a higher price than
82 por ton free on board the cars, and
at no time can it charge more than 75
cents 'pur ton pffltiv* .._
It is understood that other roae^ .
have running powers through tho pass.
Werk will be proceeded with at once.
Minister Blair stated in answer to a
-question that from Nelson lu Pentieton
tho government had decided to give a
subsiely to an independent oompany.
Asked if it was to Heinzo ho said that
it wns not finally closed. However, it
is as good as closed, and tho Columbia
& Western, of which P. August Heinze
'is the promoter, will got a eubei.ly of
&8.000 per mile. This would bo the
jBrst installment of tho road to the Pacific coast and would at onco give a connection by the way of Qkanagan lake
and the Shuswap road to the Pacific
coast cities.
This means that the contemplated
route from Robson down the east side
of ChriBtina lako to Cascade and up
^lie Kettlo river to Grand Forks will be
used, and that this most potont wish of
our citizens, that railroad connection
.with the outside world may be secured,
will be realized.

business in Portland, Oregon, has

Great preparations aro boing mado by
the committee having the matter in
chargo for a grand celebration to be
held here on the Fourth of July. There
will bo fireworks, horEO races, dancing,
etc., aud it i9 expected that large numbers will be in attendance from Mid-
Way, Anaconda, Greenwood, Grand
Forks, Carson, and ah the other towns
in tho vicinity. Come, everybody,

our great and glorious nation.

But when ho hud como unto tho brewery behold ho cculd not purchase a

So whon ho had purchased tho two

But as he was a young and virtuous

All through tho night, did ho drink

OSMOS  BOTE.
GRAND   FORKS;   B.   C,
In the gatoway city in the land of
Beosee thoro dwelt in the year of our
Lord eighteen hundred and ninety-
seven, a man, and tho man's name was
Timothy, and beside him thero dwelt
another man, and his name was Hewitt.
And it came to pass in those days that
Timothy Baid unto himself: "Behold, I
will build me a brewery that my days
and my sack may be long in  tho land,"
And thero came unto him Hewitt,
and together thoy buildod a brewery,
and the sizo thereof was eight cubits
wide, twelve cubits long aud six cubits
lus..   W-.   .....
And thoy builiUel it ovor against a
bank wheraon it is said the sorpoqt
dwelleih; ho with the whangdoodles on
his tail.
And behold, tbo people gathered
tln'mselves together and went unto thi
brewery; and thoy drank tho boer
thereof and made a jejyl'ul noise s"> that
they know not whon the night came nor
romembered thorn of tho women of the
tribo awaiting at homo with broom
sticks and scalding'wator.
Now in thoso days acroBS the river
there dwolt 3 tribo called "council,"
and they were mighty men; small in
numbers but great in idoas; mighty
men were thoy and their word was law
in the land.
And the council gatherod thomselves
together and said one to another: "Lo,
tbe people are going strong against the
brewery, and are becoming lilled with
the fullness thereof. Now, therefore,
let us ordain that no man may refresh
himself at the tjrevyery lest ho forget to
hold out tho shekels wherewith to pay
tribute to the houses of our tribe. Are
not two of ps who haye inne able to
supply sufficient boozerino to satisfy
the propensities of this pooplo?"
And the council ordained as followsi
'No man sha|| forthwith buy of tho
brewery beer less than at ono time two
gallons; and whosoeyor purchasoth
them two gallons of the browory shall
not regale thomsolves on the promisos
thoreof but Bhall go away into somo
secret place and thoro en joy tho fruits
of their foolishness."
And it was writ in lottors of black bo
that all the people could read, and bo-
bold, whon tho law became known unto
the people there was weeping and
gnashing of tooth and for seven hours
tho whole tribe sat in sack cloth and
ashes; then thoy arose and wont straight
and bought them oach a two-gallon
"growler;" ever, somo of tho council,
also, ono for overy man of tho tribe,
And thero came up into tho land of
Beosee out of the land of Us a young
man, a stranger; in his own homo a virtuous and sober man; and ho knew not
tho ordination of tho council for ho was
new to the land of Beosee and knew not
the strange and wonderful doings of
that land.
Then camo the sun forth from the
clouds and shone with great heatness
and tho day was very hot, and the
strangor from tho land of Us was of a
great thirst oven so that his tongue
clove to the roof of his mouth.
Casting about him for some way in
which to quench* his consuming thirst
he spied the brewery and said unto
himself:   "Lo,  I   will   go me unto the

•ERE THE SNOW FLIES.
A great future is shaping for Grand
Forks. It does not take a particularly
close observer to note tho continued
accumulation of evidence in support of
this statement. The latest arid greatest proof lies in tho fact that an agreement bus beon reached between, tho
dominion government und Auguut
Heinze of the Columbia tic Western railroad, for the building of a road from
"Robson Jo Pentieton. Wi|h the provincial anil dominion governmental
Subsidies Mr. Heinzo will have cush
"enough to assist very greatly''in building the road. The provincial government allows him $1,000 per" mile, and
just double this amount haB been
offered bv the dominion,' so" that 'for
every mile of track that ho layo he will
receive ?12,000 from governmental
sources.
Joining the Crow's Nest Pass railroad
nn the east at Nelson, B. C, and on the
' wost making connection with the Shuswap tic Okanogan system at Pentiotori,
'thus tho Columbia tic Western road
will complete a railroad system connecting tho eastern provinces with the Pacific coast and passing through tbe
heart of tho great minoral belt. Speaking of the railroad proposition the Koss-
lanel Miner says:
' "In our congrHtuIaMons over the building
"if tbe Crow's Nest road we should not forget
*Hhe vury important work of building a line
"from the Columbia river to Pentieton, u-Jitch
hns bem bivcn to Mr. Heinze. Tbis Is tho
■lirst st*li irf tlie securing uf ti new Canadian
Hue to the Pacific coast. Its Immediate importance will consist in giving a railroad to
tho Boundary mining camps. Grand Forks
V/ill havo a railroad before the suows of
'Smother white*; voice. 'This ivill give a tfe-
*mi'ivlous impetus to' all tin; country west ol
•KosHland as far as Dkauogan lako. One can
hardly reali/.e what all this means to liritish
Columbia."
Grand Porks is intlood to bo congratulated. The antion of tho dominion
government marks an epoch in the history of this city, tho importance of
which cannot bo over-estimated, It
moans that mine development will be
stimulated to a point where a largely increased amount of ore will be produced
and employment given to a great many
miners. It wjll bo an incentive to claim
owners to take steps to prove the value
of their properties and mako mines out
of them if they contain tho mineral to
"warrant their boing called by that name.
In fact the great question of tho development ot this district has been
hanging upon the one point of railroad
transportation, and it has now beconjo
a certainty thut thi*- important adjunct
will not bo lacking much longer, but
that Grand Forks will have a railroad
-ere the snow Hies,
this district. Tho boundaries of the
Grand Forks mining district are established in tho most natural place for
Iii ,* i.i the watershed of the distrlot being
the most natural diyiding line obtainable. Greenwood, Wellington, Etummit
an.l Pass creek are and always have
beep naturally tributary to Grand
Forks, no matter what the residents of
the other parts of the district may say,
and the goyernment [in establishing the
boundaries of the now division have
Bhown their appreciation of this fact.
Tho Timeij. wail 6avonj somewhat of
green.eyed jealousy,
Fire I   Wrell  Flreljl

^yliet", some night we hear this cry ring
Out |p thp business part of the city J,
.The yery thought of u liro becoming
^started during this weather when wood
jvi.'l almost burn without artificial assistance is appalling, for tho je*}SQ** that
yith this thought comos the one that
fho city has no means of resisting the
progress of a conflagration except the
jinorganizod individual elforts of the
^citizens.
It is time that a voluntoor fire organization vyere effected, and the Mineb
jvould suggest that a mass meeting of
pur citizens 1*0 held at once and ways
and means c]evised whoreby protection
to our reeideLCOB and business houses
■nay be provided for. A volunteer
(junket brigade should bo formed by the
(selection of a captain and Btich other
pllicers as muy be fjund necossary.
I'.very man und boy in the city should
[iluci* his name on the list and thon a
few practice drillB be held in order that
some system may bo adopted which
everyone will understand and be ready
$o put into practice at a moment's
p >tice. Two or three hundred buckets
ph'.uld be secured anddistributed along
Riverside avonuo and kept filled with
water, to be used for prompt work in
Cue a fire starts. Then with a lino of
pi *n passing water from the river to the
fire there might bn somo show of extin.

The waterworks system will not be in
before fall and meantime the city should
have some means of fighting firo. There

to warrant further delay in the matter
of affording lire protection.
STAGE   ACCIDENT,
Bbjakimi of ;y Brake Results in W. M.
Pelky Being Seriously Injured.
Tho first serious accident of this Summer to tbe stage occurred Tuesday
night about four miles this sido of Tou-
lou's whero the first chango of horses
from Marcus is mude An exceptionally light load was on the stage, there
being only six passengers aboard, Two
of those, K. K. Peitser, a drummer of
Victoria, and W. M. Pelky, a fassengor
brakoman of the Spokano FalloiSi Northern railroad, wo:e riding witli the diiver,
ChaB, Mitchell, on the frontsoat. Four
miles from Toulou's there is a stoop hill
in a canyon. Whon a boavy load is being brought in tho passengers sometimes
walk down this and other places on tho
road, but Tuesday night Mitchell did
not deem it necessary on account of the
iigbt load that any should leave the
stage,
Near the top of the hill tho brake
gave way and the four horses, impelled
by tbo weight of tho ctage, dashed for
250 yards down tho steep bill. Mitchell
kept control of them and guided Ihem,
however, until one of the reins of the
lead team broke, then they ran out of
the road and the stago brought up
against a tro?. Tho three occupants of
the front seat were thrown forward on
to the horse*}. Pelky, who sat' on the
outside, had his left shoulder and collar
bone broken and was badly bruised.
The drummer struck on his heacj and
so escaped without serious injury.
Mitchell also was unhurt and managed
to hold the horsos. The {our passengers inside the stage were badly
Bhaken up but none of them wero hurt.
One of the front wheelB of the stago was
smashed an I tho axle bout, buttho damages to tho vehicle were not so serious
as might have been expected considering tbe nature of tne smash-up.
Pelky was taken to Bossburg for
medical treatmont and Mitchell went
back to Toulou's for the extra stago
and a change of horses. The accident
delayed the arrival of tho stage until i
o'clock Wednesday morning.
Tho passengers say that no blame can
attach to the driver, Mr. Miteihell, but
that on tho contrary ho displayed remarkable ability and nerve jn not letting the horses at any'time'get the best
of him. " '_

QREEN EYE.
Tho Boundary Creek Times in its last
iesue sets up a horrible wail about the
establishment of the Grand Forks mining division, claiming that the boundaries weie established against the
wishes of a majority of the residents of
this section. The Times must not for-
:ot that the people of Greenwood form
ut a small portion of the residents of
The Council Heets.
The adjourned mooting of the city
council was held last Saturday evening
at 8 o'clock in the Club room.
Tho mayor and all tl|n members of
tho council being present, the matter of
voting on tho liquor license by-law was
then taken up, the subject under con-
pidoratiun being whether saloons should
be granted license or not.
Alderman Johnson moved, seconded
by L. A. Manly, that voting on this Btib-
joct bo inadi by ballot. The motion
was put and carried, when the votes
were takon and were as follows: for
saloons, 1; againBt, 0. The bill waa
then read the third time and passed, a
couplo of alterations being made, such
as not restricting the number of hotels
in the city; also requiring each hotel to
havo ten bedrooms for guesta instead
of twonty, as was at one timo under consideration. Thi3 by-law with these
alerations was passed and is now in
force in the city.
By-law No. 1, respecting the proceed-
ure, which had already been before the
council, «as read the third time, by
Dr. Hepworthj chairman of the special
committee, and was then passed.
On motion of Aldermon W. C. K.

evor brought to this city   is thut con-
•cerning   the   building   of tho railroad
from   Robson   to   this place, of which
there is nn longer any doubt.   On Juno
2 it was given out in Ottawa that the
"Dominion   goyernmont* "had closed its
terms with the Canadian Pacific railroad company for tho Crow's  Nest Pass
railroad.   The agreement ia as folows:
■ :   In tho first place the Dominion will
give 811,000 per mile to the Canadian
Pacific for a road from Lothbridgc to
Nelson.   For this amount the oompany
will give valuable concessions.   First of
all it gives a large cut in rates on special uitcles, of which it has handed a list
to  the   government.   Take  \yhoat, for
instance.   The  cut   in   rates   nn   that
commodity will  be  X% cents por nun- 	
"drod pounds next year and \% more
per hundred the year following muking   WAg CAUSED BY   DUNK
3 cents in all per hundred. Qn fruit T~ Jj
going west thero will bo a cut of 33^-,
per cent. On agricultural implements
there is a cut of 10 por cent in rates.
The object is to make it easier for the
farmers. There will be reductions iu
rates, and the cut rates will amount to
'nearly 8700,000 annually. The govern-
'ment will have control of this li-st of
ratefl west of Fort William.
' Again, the company will give to the
government 50,000 acres out of its land
'grunt of 250,000 of coal lands awarded
tb the British Columbia Southern, This
50,000 acres will be selected in email
blocks, tho government having the first
choice of a block and the company tho
second choice, on the checker board
plan. There will be no' monopoly in
coal lands. Besides this, the company
cannot sell coal for a higher prico than
82 per ton free onboard the cars, and
at no time can it chargo more than 75
eenis'pGv ton pf-Jnii	
It is understood that other roacu .
.have running powers through the pass.
Wcrk will be proceeded with at once,
Minister Blair stated in answer fo a,
question that from Nelson to Pentieton
'the government had decided to giyo a
subsidy to an independent company.
Asked if it was to Heinzo ho said that
it wiiB not finally closed. However, it
is as good as closed, and the Columbia
& Western, of which F. August Heinze
js the promoter, will get a BUbsiJy of
i58,000 per mile. This would bo the
jBrst installment of tho road to the Pacific const and would at once give a connection by the way of Okanagan lake
and the Shuswap road to the Pacific
coast cities.
This   means  that  the contemplated
routo from Robson dovyn  tho oast side
of ChriBtina lake to Cascade and up
the Kettle river to Grand Forks will be   ,, , . .        ,
used, and that this most potent wish of  *he PeoPle a"> S0111* stronS ■»«•»* th°

But when he hud come unto tho brewery behold ho cculd not purchase a
small "growler" for the law of the council said, "not less than two gallons."
So whon ho had purchased tho two
gallons he retired unto the hilltop back
of tho brewery and there did drink of
tho boer.
Hut as he was a young and virtuous
his thirst wur soon quonchod and of
the beer thore was yet loft seven q uarts

and at tho fjejng down of the -sun tho
young man was gloriously drunk, and
theie was yet left five quarts.
And the mosquito und tho whang-

young man and did bite him; but he
heedxl them not but still drank the
beer.
All through tho night did ho drink

swelling.

* Dog life in Grand Forks has lobt its
joys.
A pall hangs over our usually bvight
and cheerful city. The streets, which
in the not far dista-it past fairly teemed
with dogs of all kinds, sizeB and degrees, are now silent and deserted save
whero some poor, friendless cur unwarned of the terrible fate which lies in
wait for him. Hits aimlessly around tho
street corners and wonders where all his
Dld-time companions havo "pulled their
freights" to.
• The dog poisoner is abroad in the
land and largo-sized chunks of gloom
have settled down upon tho souls of a
largo number of our ex-dog owners.
Tho trouble began about U:30 last
Tuesday evening when 'Crazy Jack,"
tho lean, hungry looking black cur which
has made the'cornet of Riverside and
liridgo streets its loafing placo for the
past few mouths, wanderod into I, . A.

by a brilliant idea, sat up with a
look of pained surprise on his face,
Clasped himself around tho stomach
with both front paws and began to
sing Harry Shead's favorite song, "Oh,
'Dear, Mother, What a Pain I'vo Got |"
Then he wont off into a rapid succession
of fits.
In loss timo than it takes to tell overy
man in the saloon was perched up on
the counter and thoro they remained
until tho poor dog had passod in his
p'.iecks,
From that time on until Thursday
pvjning they wont thick and fast.
Aboi*t the same time "Crazy Jack" was
shuffling off his mortal coil Wiley Glover's Hun water spaniel, "Frank," was
attacked in much tho same manner in
Van Nobs's saloon and died soon afterward. Then followod in rapjd guoces-
plon Joe Gelinas' .Scotch terrier, Mayor
Manly's collie, "Paddy," and a number
pf other valuable doge.
Wednesday morning the fun started
again by Charles Emmort'sdog "Frank"
getting a dose and succumbing in a fow
moments. Then H, A. Huntley's Mexican hairless dog went under, and others
followed every few minutes throughout
lho day until nineteen had gone down
pefore the unseen destroyer.
"BBQUISOAT IN PACE."
The poisoner, whoever ho was, did his
work well, tho poison turning up in all
j arts of the city at once.
A reward has boon ollerod for tho discovery of tho dastard' who spread tho
poison, and thoso who have lost their
rets aro living in hope that he mav bo
brought to justice.
Whilo this city was ovorrun with
worthless and ownerless dogs, still
nothing too severe can bo said in exo-
cration of tho person who carried
pn this wholesale slaughter. As is
always the case the worthless dogs
escaped and tho valuable animal were
destroyed.
It the perpetrator of the deed can be
discovered ho should be given the full
extent of tho law.
ALL   SORTS  OF   NEWS
Harry Hill, of Greenwood, visited this
city this week,
P. S. Welheim, of Spokano, camo in
on Thursday's stage.
W. H. Williamson, of Spokane, was
in the city last Monday.
Dan Bennett, of Rossland, arrived in
Ihe city last Wednesday,
Ed. Kirkpatrick was one of Wednesday's arrivals from Rossland.
6. Smith, of Long Lake, was a visitor
Somo samples of oro were brought
into tho city on Monday last from a
strike in tho B. C. claim, in Summit
camp which, if the showing continues,
places that property in the front rani;
with the bonanza claims ot tho v/hole
country.
The ore brought iuto town is solid
copper and iron sulphides, and in appearance moro c'osely resembles tho ore
from the Le Roi al Rossland thau anything yet producod from this district.
Mr, Keough informs us that au open
crosscut was started on tho property
last week, and before a foot of depth
had been gained tlio entire workings
wero in solid ore, like that brought to
lown. The crosscut was continued and
shows the oro body to bo full thirty feet
wide, of solid oro.
During tho week an assay for copper
was made from the rock with returns ot
10 por cent eoppor, which, considering
that it is surfaco rock, is almost remarkable.
Development on the proporty will be
pushed ahead until it is fully determined whother or not tho expictations
raised by this wonderful surfaco showing are justified.
On the Coin.
J. A. Elliott was down during tho
week with some Hno samples of ore
from the Coin, ou tho Summit trail,
about four miles from the city. The
specimens, which were, takon from the
12-foot lovol, were very Que and soeraod
to be almost solid tiue-grainod galena,
with Borne iron aud copper.
The Coin has now becomo quito a
well known proporty, and as it is so
closo to town may bo oaqily visiitcd by
anyone who may bo desirous of seoing
for themsolvoB tho splendid showing boing mado.
As tho formation on the surface is
very much broken up tho ore is as yet
somewhat Bcatteiod. but thero is small
doubt but that with depth tho ore body
wili become moro concentrated, and tho
Coin will make a mine,
Boneta Pegging Away,
Work is still progressing on tho
Boneta, the heavy showing of mineral
reported last week still continuing and
being much improved.
At the rato of progress now being
made thore seems no doubt that the ore
