Array THEG
SECOND   YEAR.--NO.   54.
GRAND   FORKS  B.  ('.,    SATURDAY,   MAY   22,   1897,
Victoria Business Mean Gives
His Opinion,
He Believes That This Oity Will Be a
.Kimiiiier Por Business as Soon
as ii Raillodd Starts
Thi- Way.
Steve O'Brien of Victoria, li. C, and
0. W. Mnliin, ot Tacorna, have boon
Bpendiog tin Week in Qrand Forks tho
guests of Mayor J/anly. Mr, O'Brien Is
known all over the northwest on account of his heavy property interests,
Jle ia owner of the Grotto; the most
popular saloon in Victoria, and has extol sivo mining interests on Toad mountain. He also haa considerable properly
in   Kasioj Larileau   nnd  Grand Forks,
In conversation witli n Miner repre-
ontative, Mr. O'Thlcii said! "Of ell the
mining camps I have been in I believe
this to be the leader. Its locution and
general advantages aro such that it is
bound to bo the foremost city of the
mining country, The only thing Grand
Forks ia:ks is railroad transportation
and I feel certain that a lailroad {will
start thin way within n year. And when
the first shovel full of earth is turned
on a road headed for Grand Forks this
town Will have n boom that will ben
hummer. It won't be an artificial boom
either. The town will juat grow all at
once into a good sized city and it will
liefer go backwards. There will not bi
many days work done on tlm railroad
before you see me in business here. I
know what the town has back of it.
The most influential men of the province
have interests hero and they liavj ba-
come interested because of the immense
mines that lie up Ihe rivor a feu- miles.
I understand that by the time a railroad reaches here fifteeh, mines will lu
ready in ship ore, and you know that i-i
a wonderful showing. Byen after lho
railroad reaches here, the mining camps
around here have gut to fee 1 off of this
place Its position is such that they
couldn't help themselves If ihey wanted
to. Sfes, sir, Grand Forks is bound to
bo all right and tiie follows that get in
on the ground door ar." going to niako
big money here.'1

must have had three* or four assistants

hung up in the mud on tin* opposite

aid all Eorts of maneuvers were gone
through to drag tlie fioight wagons
through. The usual method was to
hack in a light wagon, remove the load

It was backed out of the fond onto the

Crawford has resumed work on his contract with the I'iere'fe Daks and Flat
Creek Mining Company to sink "'0 feet
of shaft on each of three of the properties in tho group located at I'lereV, lake.
Mr.  Crawford   las reached a depth ot
10 feet on the Evening claim nnd has
encountered a vein of heavy spin* mined
with niiart'/ with an occasional sprinkling of freo gold. Tlie test of tlie surface rock gave i-'l.l'l gold, five ounces
silver and two per cent copper to tho
ton, Tho character ot the rock remained the same fbr the lirst :i() feet of
depth, but during the lasl few days the
formation seems tu have gradually
changed, until it is believed that at a
deptli of 60 feet tiie property can bo
classed is the best of tlm promising
1 l'jspects of tho camp.    The tl il mining
Bird', i iluatcd in and being one ,cf the
same group, has developed a 15-inch
vein of bromides of silver, carrying a
liberal percentage of gold and copper,

THE   i^AHIS   BELL :.   CASE.
Chief Justice Davis's Decision  Ri-
vkksi.ii by the Full Court.
The fuil court, consisting of Justices
Me'reighl, Walkem, Drake and MeColl,
have delivered judgiinnt in the famous
Puris lie-do case, alio .ring the appeal,
thereby upsetting tin judgment of
Chief Justice Davie. Thu case is that
of the Nelson & Fort Bheppard railway
company against the owners of the
i'a: is llelle claim, which lies within the
b wn limits of Rossland. The railway
company claims the land as part of its
grunt Irom the government, nnd at
tacked the validity of the mineral claim,
the I itter carrying with it surface rights
if it is held lo b i valid. Chief Justice
Davie on the hearing gave judgement
for tin company, holding tho Pari;
llelle claim invalid, an I the judgment is
uow reversed by the full court.- Inland
