Prop.rtl.1  H.ld   by   Major   Walker
and Mr. 1'. MoOarthy, Q. 0.
Bunning aorois Mr. F. MoCsi thy, ths
well known Q. C, o( Calgary, the
other day, we asked bim for lomo
information about the mining pros,
pecti in which Major Walker and he
ire intereated near Banff. "Oh yea,
buiy now, Me me it three," suid the
genial.- lawyer, and at the hour
appointed ws hie I to his spacious law
office! over the Imperial Baik. In
Mr. McCarthy'! room we found itrong
circumitantial evidence of his intereii
in mineralogy in the shape of a
large show cue on the wall filled with
���pecimeni, principally galena and
copper ores, and secured from the
vandalism of ipecimeo collector! by
look ind kiy, . Mr. McCarthy is con-
liderably interested in claimi at
Illicilliwaet, but thoie to which we
now refer are located about three milet
north of Eldon nation, the lirst station east of the summit, on the C. P.
Railway, and about 25 miles west of
Banff. The claims are located on what
Is known as Castle Mountain, and
which is described on Sir Wm. Daw-
eon's geological map of the country ac
carying cupper. Tbe group held by
Major Walker and Mr. McCarthy embraces seven location!. Six of these
claimi carry copper, and out is a copper ore carryinggalena.The formation it

tiiiiire veint,of which four are proved
to be luch by tha development work
tbit hu been done, but n to the other
vein! visible them it not sufficient
work done to decide whether they are
fiisuro veins or merely itringen. On
thi largest vein there is a tunnel
driven a distance of sixty feet. The
lead ie quarts, sight feet in thickneti,
with copper glmM and lulphidei dii-
iimlnittd thrcugh it.
Mr. McCirthy then produced a number of amy certificate! from which
we noted the following: Barlingame,
Denvir, Colo.,4G.B0 per cent of copper;
Boi'.on and Montana Company of
Grast Fails, b. 48, snd 15 per cent
i-Mpectively; ind Stowell A Co.. ol
Spokane, 30 8/10 per Mnt copper.
Ths owners of th. property have consulted with W. Pellew Hirvey as to
amount ol copper in this ori to wir-
rant ths erection ol works snd thst.
gentleman hu advised that tbey
ihould uot go to any expense unlets
thsy hive 15 per cont ol copper, but
ti thi ivirige of ths ssssys is something like 231 Per cent the owner!
hive every reason to be satisfied with
their prospects. The ore alio carries
gold and nlver.
On one of tbe locations ii a galena-
copper deposit over 50 feel io width.
Thii fall been traced 500 to iiOO feet
each, way from discovery and although i drive hai been cut through
thii ledge for i distance of 50 feet it
hai not yet reaohed the hanging wall.
Tbe ors is low grsds running mainly
in lead, ol which, however, thtre is 72
per cent.slmott the possible proportion
to be found in pure galena. In addition, thii ore carries 5 per eent coppor,
The copper it risible to the eye in the.
dwpeit pirt of the lead, ai native copper. Nova Scotia and Montana minors ol great experience, who hive
sximined iht claim, have exprotied
tbt opinion that the probability is
that with depth the lead will give
place to copper, juit as the Butte
mines wire lound lo have given low
valuei for the fint 500 feet when they

With the peroentige of copper

that the loottioni ire so well situstsd

In addition to thli, llr. McCirthy ind
Major Walker hive another location
15 mile! north ol thi C. P. R. and
almoit due north of Eldon Station,
Thia diicovery lies north-east of the
other. The ore from thii location
astayed 28 per cent of copper and $7
in gold. There are on the dump 600
lbi of ore. In this case the ore
matter is not mixed with the
quarts of the vein but ii a
clean payitreak running from n
toot to two feet in width. Twenty
miles back of thii there it mother
locality where eleven locations bave
heen made also on copper ore. Mr.
McCarthy knew of thii locality four
to five years ago, but did not record
the ground ai he thought it too far
back from the railway, Yet igain
there is another group of locations at
s point between lhe group previously
referred to and the railway line,
from which it is distant some
25 miles. This gives a block of country 25 miles by 40 milos over which
copper has bsen found, and lhe prospecting work so far done goes to ahow
that there ii in immense deposit of
copper ore in thii section of the Rocky
We wish Major Walker and Mr,
McCarthy all success in the development of their property md they have
done excellent work in opening up a
country concerning which little hai
hitherto been known, and in which
comparatively little prospecting has
yet been done, Theso discoveries and
facts are worthy of tho notice of prospectors md must attract more attention to the country sooner or later.

A general meeting of the above
association was held at the Columbia
House on Wednesday night. Present:
Hon, F.W. Aylmer, presides!; Messrs
Neilson, vice-president; Warren, M,
Dainard, McNaught, McNeish, Lone,
Jol'ffe, Langlands, Bates, Mercier,
H.G. Parson, Halch and Haggen, sec.
Tbe President occupied the chair.
The committee's report on constitu-
tlon and bylawa was adopted after
aome lively ditcusiion on the clause:
"It shall be one of the object* of thii
association lo prevent the employment
of Mongolian labor in llie mines of
Britiah Columbia, and no person can
bs a member of this association who
will employ sueh labor in ths   mines,
Mr, McNaught strongly opposed the
clause. The Chiuete, aaid lie, were
Britiah lubjects., He would rather
see Americans excluded. They should
put Americans and Chinese on tlie
same basis.
Mr. Haggen supported the clause. He
pointed to the troubles that had
arisen in the Australian Colonies
over Chinese labor, and they ought to
prohibit it while this country wns yet
in the early stages of ita development.
Mr. McNeish considered thoy should
stop Chinese mining. In New Deuver
ihey had fired them right out and
boycotted a man who employed Chinese, It waa ridiculous to compare
Chinese with Americans, who had
done so much to develop the mineral
reiourcM of the country.
Mr. Dainard eupported the clause.
Chinamen never went out prospecting,
whereas Americans had been the
pioneeri of the country and had
brought in capital to develop their
mineral resources.
Mr. Lowe condemned Mr. Mc*
Naught's action in comparing Chinese
with Americana. Such an idea wat
Tho President said a white man
could no more compete with Chinese
than with a coyote, and he was in
favor of keeping out Mongolian labor
in every seme of the word, Tho only
thing he wai in doubt ibout wat
whether it wn wiie to include thii
clause in their connltution.
On the queition being put the clause
was adopted without, division on the
motion of Mr, Dainard, seconded by
Mr. Mercier..

It were generally known that on miny
an occasion Sir William Van Horn,

thii tdministrilion, perhaps, the
opinion of the Government in thii
matter would be somewhit different."

J. Henderson has arranged for
the men who have been working on the Lincoln claim
to start work on the Lucky
Jack, where a tunnel will he put in to
strike the lead. It is expected tha*. a
drive of 45 feet will accomplish this,
when the tunnel will be continued to
follow the lead,
In a paper read at Montreal a ion
of Sir William Van Home stated
that the Crow'a Nest Pass coal fields
are about 50 milet from the proposed
���melting litis and the smelters are to
be so situated that it is down grade
both Irom the coal and the mining
centres and not only will them srael
ten get all ore of East Kootenay
but a goodly portion of tha West
Kootenay ores as well.
C. Hatch and party have been
drowned out of the tunnel in the Sunday claim by an ice jam in thn Ottertail River backing np the water. The
tunnel was in 27 feet, and followed tbe
luud. when work had to be stopped on
it. The ore body was similar at the
end of the tunnel to its appearand
where it is exposed. A shaft has now
been started and will bo sunk on the
lead.   It ia now down 10 feet.
The Anglo- Continental Gold Syn
dicaie, Limited, of Great Britain, and
the Jersey Lily .Mining Company, each
brought suit for 850.000 damages
against Wm. C. Bashford and Daniel
F. Keinlin, alleging that the latter
suited" the Jersey Lily group of
mines and thus deceived their expert
in the value of the property which
they purchased, and on which thev
expended large sums in developing.
W. H. Lee, of Calgary, one of the
directors uf the Bald Mountain Co.,
informs us thst a drift hss been pot
in 1(1 feet on the left and 20 feet on the
right of the tunnel, showing the lend
to he 80 feet in width, _. Kenny,
the contractor, report! thnt the cn body

two pay chutes or chimneys in the
lead, respectively five feet and s'z
inches in widlh. Then are now 400
