 THE GREENWOOD MINER.
Vol. 1, No. 43.
GREENWOOD, B. C, FRIDAY, NOV. 24, 1899.
$200 Per Year.
A PAINFUL ACCIDENT
A. L. Watson and Two Others
Seriously Injured.
Mining News in General ��� More
Boundary Properties Floated in the
East.
Eholt, Nov. 23.���(Special.) A very
painful accident occured in the shaft of
the B. C. mine Wednesday. Just previous to going off shift a hole was fired
in the bottom of the shaft, but was only
partially exploded, and the hole was
again, fired. As was afterwards discovered, some of the powder still remained;
and A. L. Watson, who has the contract
for sinking, while subsequently working
there, struck it with a pick, with the result that it exploded in his face and that
of two other men���McBride and Wm.
Esson by name. Watson was unconscious for several hours. His face was
badly burned, and it is likely lie will
lose the sight of both eyes. The sight
of the other men is also in a critical
condition, and they arc otherwise injured. Mr. Watson has been taken to
his home in Rossland.
Assays from the Last Mine in Summit camp are very satisfactory. The
latest gave $23.15 in gold, $1.51 in silver, and $12.54 in copper at 10c. This
total of $37.20 was obtained irom a general sampling of a four-feet vein, taken
at the bottom of a surfaeo trench. The
vein is said to be almost vertical, and a
tunnel, less than 100 feet in length
should cut it ond give a good deal of
stoping ground. Mr. V. Qnmby of Seattle is the principal owner.
The Republic Miner says: A deal of
importance to the interests of Republic,
was consumed during the past week,
whereby C. J. McCuaig and his associates of the Republic mine, have acquired
controlling interests in the Jim Blaine,
Quilp and Lone Pine-Surprise, These
wonderful rich properties taken under
the wing of so powerful a syndicate, will
be worked as subsidiary companies, to
the parent organization, The Republic
Consolidated Gold Mining company.
This plan is similar to the great 13. A. C,
in that each property preserves its incorporated name but at the same time
is subsidiary to tlie parent organization
In Brown's camp, A. B. Clabon, of
Rossland, is pushing development work
on the Strawberry, and Orphan Boy.
An inclined shaft on the Strawberry is
being sunk near the hanging wall of the
vein. Considerable ore is being taken
out.   It averages $12 per ton.
Twelve men are employed in the Enterprise and Anchor, adjoining properties, owned by D. D. Mann, of Montreal,
and Wm. Mackenzie, of Toronto. A
70-foot shaft is equipped with a horse
whim.
A Laidlaw, of the firm of Massam &
Laidlaw, mining brokers, Spokane, was
in Greenwood this week and has just returned from an extended visit to the
east, where he was instrumental in
placing several properties among them
being the Bengal Group, consisting of
the Bengal,   Badger   and   tlie   Bristol,
Deadwood Camp, which were sold to a
Quebec syndicate. A cabin 15x20 feet
has just been completed on this property, and two shifts will be operated.
There is an immense cropping of quartz
from 50 to 75 feet in width, much of it
showing good values, principally in gold.
The Athelstan, Wellington camp, was
bonded in Toronto for $30,000. Advice
has been received that the bond is likely
to be taken up.
The new 400-ton ore bins are being
erected at the B. C. With the sinking
of main working shaft an additional 100
feet, and the installation of a new plant
including a 40-drill compressor, it is calculated that the mine will be able to
ship 400 tons per day. About 200 miners will bo employed. Ore sorters have
already been engaged.
Six men are employed in the Mountain View, adjoining the J. S. claim.
The property was recently bonded for
$25,000 on a 90-day option.
A cross-cut tunnel at a depth of 50
feet underneath the railway track is
being run on the Silver Knot, at Fisherman creek. The ledge at the surface is
fifteen feet wide. It has yielded some
high assays in copper values.
The main shaft on the Josie, in Summit camp, is down 112 feet. At the 100-
foot level a drift of t>4 feet long had been
run on the No. 1. The ledge is from
two to four feet wide, and presents a
pretty appearance, being composed of
bornite, copper pyirtes, and white
quartz. The values range from 5 to 40
per cent, in copper, and a little silver.
What is supposed to be the main shaft
has a width of four and a half feet on
the surface. It consists of native copper in quartz and oxide. After it has
been better defined by prospect work a
cross-cut will be driven  at  the   100-foot
level. __
Col. Dudley WU1 Investigate.
Colonel Edwin Dudley, United States
consul at Vancouver, has received instructions from Washington to proceed
at onre to Republic, Wash., to investigate thoroughly the case of Martin Everett, the man now held by the Canadian authorities at Kamloops. It is not
unlikely that the outcome of this case
will be a demand made on the Canadian authorities for the extradition of
Everett, as it is alleged that he was
brought over from the American side
into Canadian territory without tlie
proper hearing on the southern side of
the boundary line first.
It was alleged that Everett held up a
stage near Grand Forks, and in order to
save tlie trouble that there would be
about the matter, the American officers
simply handed Everett over to the Canadian authorities, and it is even said
that the arresting officers disregarded a
writ of habeas corpus and other interferences of tlie law. Consul Dudley's
investigation will be to the root of the
whole matter.
WON HANDS DOWN
Electric Light and Tramway
to Phoenix
Now Assured���The By-Laws Carried
Almost Unanimously By a Large
Vote of the Ratepayers.
"The war in Africa"  which,   to  some
extent, has been carried on between  A.
Fisher anil W. S. Fletcher in   regard  to
theatre matters, has been brought to an
; amicable   aud  very   satisfactory  settle-
I ment.   The   lumber   syndicate   repre-
! sented by   Mr.   Fisher   has   purchased
Fletcher's saw mill, and Mr. Fisher has
I retired   from   tlie  theatre  business,  so
that Mr.  Fletcher has undispute
session of the latter field.
Voting on the electric light and tramway by-laws took place yesterday, and
while there was no visible excitement
the vote polled was unusually large,
showing that the rate-payers took a
keen interest in the result, and were almost unanimously in favor of the two
propositions. The vote cast was 52 in
favor, and three against. The promoters, who are local capitalists, and pioneers of the city and district, are to be
congratulated upon the outcome. It is
not only a recognition of the necessity
of electric light, and the importance of a
tramway to Phoenix, but an expression
of personal confidence in their ability
and desire, to carry out the provisions of
the by-laws in spirit as well as in letter.
pos-
At a meeting of the Board of License
Commissioners, it was decided to be in
the best interests of the city, and the
citizens generally, that the game of
"Black Jack," which has been in full
swing for some time in Greenwood,
should cease from this time forward,
and the chief of police was given instructions to enforce the law in that respect, and as a consequence 28 informations were laid, and yesterday morning
at the police court out of the 28 professional gamblers summoned 10 put in an
appearance, pleaded guilty and were
fined $50 apiece. Owing to the non-appearance of the others, adjournment|was
made until this morning in order to enable the chief to obtain   more evidence,
Christopher Columbus Warmouth was
on Wednesday charged at Midway before
Judge Spinks witli the stealing of ahorse
from John A. Coulson on the 30th of
June last. The teslynony of Coulson
and another witness was taken and Ilis
Honor, owing to lack of evidence, discharged the prisoner. J F. McLeod
acted for the defence.
The Republic Miner of last week has
this to say : "That tlie richness and extent of tlie Republic camp is attracting
the attention of the great financiers of
Canada is evidenced by tlie visit of
Messrs. Hugh McC. Sutherland, J.
Hugo and Donald Ross, and W, A.Campbell." Long interviews with these
gentlemen arc given.
J. C. Clute, Sr., Inspector of Customs,
New Westminster, is in the city in connection with the customs service here.
He fully realizes tlie importance of this
point and says (ireenwood will have to
be created an outport without delay. It
is also probable that he will recommend
that an increase in the staff of the
officials be made.
An order for Letters of Administration
has been granted by His Honor Judge
Spinks to I). McLenhan in the estate of
Malcom McQuaig,de eased, late of Rock
Creek. Security for $12,000.00 is to be
given.
W. P, Tierney, Nelson, local agent for
the Gault Coal Company of Lethbridge,
received a telegram from FL T. Gault
announcing that the trouble at the company's colliery had been adjusted, and
that the company would be able to resume shipments in a couple of days.
The C. P. R. has issued a map showing
the fruit growing lands of southern British Columbia with Kootenay Valley. As
there has been a great demand for information concerning these properties, the
company will furnish maps on application.
A meeting of the Greenwood Liberal
Association will be held in Rendell's
Hall on Saturaday evening the 25th inst.
at 8 p. m. Important business is to
come before the meeting and all liberals
are requested to be present.
It is understood that H. A. King, of
King & Co., has resigned his position
as postmastdr, and that his assistant,
Mr. North, has been recommended to
succeed him.
H. B. Gilmour, Vancouver, representing the Waterons Engine works, Ontario,
is in the city. It is his firm that has the
contract for the new fire horse wagon.
James McGregor, Mining Inspector,
arrived in the city last evening, and will
make his periodical inspection of tbe
mines before leaving.
Percy Godenrath, Spokesman-Review,
was in tlie city this week, and left for
Spokane yesterday.
NORTH   FORK.
In the winze from the <>0 foot level of
the Golden Fagle, drifting through a
large body of rich ore is now in progress.
Three shifts are employed on both the
Volcanic and Earthquake, near by properties. The Pathfinder and Diamond
Hitch never looked better. The same
can be said of theKittie W., a Pathfinder
Mountain proposition that promises to be
a winner. Work will shortly be resumed
on the Little Bertha. Cabins for the accommodation of the men are now being
erected. Besides a lot of surface prospecting a 40-foot tunnel has been run
through the ledge, which is about 3 feet
wide. This is a free milling proposition,
and assays as high as $160 in gold per
ton have been obtained. The average in
the face of the tunnel gives values of $86
in gold, and 11 oz. of silver per ton. The
second ledge paralleling No. 1, which
can be traced for 20(1 feet on the surface,
has not yet been thoroughly prospected.
Seventeen men have just completed
building a wagon road to the Bonanza
about live miles beyond. Sinking in the
main working shaft will be resumed as
soon as the hoist and steam pump is installed.

His Honor, the Lieutenant-Governor,
has been pleased to adopt the recommendation of the Government made to
him in a minute of council, and has
dissolved the Manitoba Legislature.

A RECKLESS FORGER
Young Clarence King Issues
Cheques Galore,
And ia Brought Up With a Short
Turn By the Strong Arm of the
Law���Committed for Trial.
On Tuesday afternoon Clarence
King, a young man 18 or 19 years
old, was up before his Magistrate Hallett at the court house on a charge
of issuing forged cheques. It appears
that young King was at Harry Nash's
hotel, Phoenix, and found a cheque
book there, which he promptly put in
his pocket, and began straightway issuing cheques for the sums of $32, $35,
$39, and $30, respectively, which were
duly cashed. These were drawn on the
Bank of Commerce, and purported to be
signed by Harry Nash. As soon as
their fraudulent character was discov-
ed King Was arrested, and an effort was
made to give him an opportunity of a
speedy trial before Judge Spinks.
However, upon appearing before his
Honor, having been committed, he elected to be triad by a judge and jury at the
regular Assizes. The prisoner's father
is a carpenter at Fernie, B. C.
Since the above was written other
forged cheques have turned up.
THE  BOUNDARY  MAILS
Are Vow Carried by the C. V. H. Direct
Mr. John McLeod, superintendent of
the railway mail service, arrived in Rossland on Sunday evening from his
headquarters at Vancouver. His mission
was to arrange for the sending of the
Boundary Creek mails via the Columbia
& Western railway, instead of by the
stage line from Bossburg. Several days
���ince, as soon as the matter was brought
to Mr. McLeod's attention, he sent a
telegram to Postmaster William Wadds
directing that the mails be sent into
the Boundary country from Rossland via
the Columbia & Western railway. The
telegram was not delivered to Postmaster Wadds and the mails continued
to be sent via Bossburg. This is now
changed and the mail that left for Grand
Forks and Greenwood Tuesday morning
was sent via the railway.
* Mr. H. A. Elwell, chief clerk of the
Northwestern division of the American
railway mail service, with headquarters
in Spokane, was in Rossland Sunday
and Monday for the purpose of conferr
ing with Mr. McLeod in relation to the
mail sent from the other side into the
Boundary Creek section. Mr. Elwell
favored sending these via the Columbia
& Western railway, and practically an
agreement was reached between him and
Mr. McLeod in relation to the matter.
Tlie matter, however, will have to be
ratified by the postal authorities at Ottawa and Washington before it can be
carried into effect.
THE  CITY  ALDERMEN.
W. G. Gaunce Asked for Compensation for
Injuries -Chiel Henton Appointed Health Inspector The Bonn* to the Smelter.
The council met as usual on Monday
evening. Present Aldermen Beath,
Wood, Galloway, Sutherland, and Cameron. Mayor Hardy was absent, being
ill and unable to be present. Aid,
Cameron was voted to the chair.
Communications read from E. C.
Wickwire, re audit of the city books;
W. G. Gaunce asking for compensation
for accident; from Leonard Norris, Government agent, re water rightB; A. B.
Campbell, architect, giving estimate
$2,000 as necessary to complete proposed
sidewalks; a petition from rate-payers
was also received asking the council to
submit a by-law for bonus to smelter.
The fire chief reported regarding fires
last quarter.
A committee consisting of Aid. Beath
and Galloway was appointed to investigate into the city's liability re accident
to Mr. Gaunce.
Aid. Galloway gave notice of a bylaw to grant a bonus of $3,600 to the
smelter.
The report of the committee on finance was adopted
W. E. Henton was appointed health
inspector in addition to his other duties. He is to go around and see that
the provisions of the health by-law are
carried out.
Mr. Nichols, Silver street, offered to
accept $200 for the ten teet of his lot
proposed to be taken for the widening
of Silver Btreet.
The by-law providing for an alleyway
between Silver and Copper streets was
read a firit and second time.
On motion lots 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the
cemetery grounds were reserved, and
the price per lot was fixed at $10 each.
The council then adjourned.
Likes Boundary Better.
The Rossland Miner says:
It has been an open secret for some
time that Rossland was getting far too
civilized and comfortable to suit "Father
Pat" of St. George's church, in this city.
When Rev. Mr. Irvin came here in
1895 Rossland was a pioneer mining
camp and the community stood greatly
in need of just such a missionary as he,
as any of the early settlers will cordially
admit, and that he filled the bill in a
manner that no one else could, will also
be admitted by everyone who knows the
early history of the camp. Indeed, Mr.
Irvin has so closely identified himself
with the rise and progress of Rossland
that the camp without him would be
something like "Hamlet" with the
Prince of Denmark missing.
Father Pat is easily a missionary first.
His whole aim and desire is along this
line, and he is more than willing that
others who come after him should walk
along the beaten paths that he has hewed
out, while he seeks once more the frcnt
ranks of the pioneer in other districts.
It ia stated on good authority that Mr.
Irvin could have been appointed Archdeacon had he so desired, but in place of
this, at his own request, he has been
given a roving commission, principally
in the Boundary Creek district and still
further west. He will, however, still
continue to reside in this city and make
the camp his headquarters.
Another British Victory.
The Association football match between the British and Canadian teams,
which was played last Saturday on the
baseball grounds, resulted in a victory
for the British by a score of 3 goals to 0.
The game was fought with great keenness, and despite the wet state of the
ground the play was enjoyed by all, and
good improvement shown by the players.
There will be a grand match with
Grand Forks next Saturday afternoon
on the ball grounds at 2:30 p. m., with
grand stand for spectators.
In the evening there will be a smoking concert under the auspices of the
Footballers in Miller's hall. Admission
50 cents. The proceeds will be sent to
the Lord Mayor of London for the soldiers' widows and orphans of the Transvaal war.    All are Invited,

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
LOUIS   BLUE   OF   ROSSLAND
Gives   Facts
Regarding
bine.
the   Lumber Com-
The big lumber combine, which is to
control the milling interests of Kootenay
and the Boundary country, has just
been incorporated with a capital of
$500,000. It will include eight mills,
having a capacity of over 500,000 feet,
and the timber reserves behind it are
estimated at 500,000,000 feet. Louis
Blue, P. Genelle, James Poupore, and
A. Fisher are the backers of the new
corporation, which will be known as the
Yale-Columbia Company, Ltd. The
head offises will be at Greenwood.
"There will be no raise in the price of
lumber," said Mr. Blue in discussing
the situation with a Rossland Record
reporter. "The consolidation is chiefly
to perfect our facilities for supplying
the public, and also to secure economy
in management. With the mills operated seperately it is often a~ difficult
matter to maintain supplies. With the
combination, each mill will be in a position to help any of the others in a pinch,
and the result will be great advantages
all around. The mills include P. Genelle & Co.'s at Nakusp, capacity 150,000
feet every 24 hours; Genelle & Co.'s
plant, at Robson, capacity 150,000 feet;
my plant here with a capacity of 70,000
feet, and my plant at Ymir of 35,000
feet. They will also include the four
mills owned by myself and A. Fisher in
the Boundary, Their location and capacity is: Phoenix, 30,000 feet, Eholt,
50,000 feet, Rock Creek, 40,000 feet, and
Long Lake 30,000. In addition to these
the company will erect four mills over
the Boundary at points not yet settled.
"Our reserves are located all over the
Arrow lakes and through the Boundary
district. We have limber lauds under
Dominion and provincial grants, as well
as by virtue of lease from claim owners
and the railway companies. I should
say that the amount of timber now
standing on our territory is close to half
a billion feet It was at first proposed
to have the head offices in Rossland, but
as so many small mills will be located
around Greenwood, that place was
chosen instead. The officers of the company have not yet been chosen and 1
cannot say who they will be. The whole
of our capital stock, amounting to $500,-
000, will be held by P. Genelle, .), Poupore, J. Uenelle, A. Fisher, and myself.
None will be offered to the public.
Luther Combined.
Uossi.ANi), li, C, Nov. 18.���Efforts
have-been liitide for several months to
consolidate uli the lumber interests in
that part of the bvootoiiiiydistrict known
us Boundary., it is iiqw announced that
this plan ol consolidation bus been carried through in successful culmination,
and that in tho development uf this
scheme every lumber mill in the Boundary country, as well us all valuable
timber sites included in the area of that
region, lias been secured by G. O, Buchanan, It is stated that Buchanan will
endeavor to control the timber industry
inthatpartof Kootenay. Theseluuibcr
interests are said to be valued at $1,000-
000.
The Lottie F. Group.
The development work is in progress
on the Lottie F. group three or four
miles up Copper creek on the main Kettle river. This is one of the richest
claims in that part of the country, and
has brought this new camp into prominence. The group was bonded some
time ago by Messrs J. A. Cameron, W.
A. Campbell and J. A. McGregor of this
place, and at a very large figure.
The main shaft   has  been  sunk  to) a
depth of 40 feet and at the bottom is in
solid ore, assaying six per cent, copper,
and $3.00 in gold.
Two smaller shafts have been sunk,
and several open cuts made on different
parts of the ledge covering an area
1,200x1,400 feet, and every working has
shown ore all carrying good values.
A comfortable cabin and shaft house
have been built, and men will be kept at
work all winter, sinking in the main
shaft, and driving a tunnel from near
the creek level to cross-cut the ore body
for the entire distance, thus gaining a
a depth of 300 feet. The work work will
be c?rried on by the firm of Keith &
Ketchum and their associates, who have
taken over the bond from Messrs. Cameron. McGregor and Campbell.

WELDING   OF   THE   EMPIRE.
Toronto, the hotbed of loyalty in Canada, and Dr. Parkin, the Demosthenes
of Imperial unity, were brought together in a meeting in Massey hall a few
nights ago, and the enthusiasm is said
to have been unparaleled in the history
of a city noted for enthusiastic gathering!. Dr. Parkin's text was the Boer
war, and the moral was the influence it
would have in the welding of the Empire. War is the most potent of forces
in cementing peoples and solidifying
Hentiment, as well as one of segregation.
It unites as well as destroys; and from
this point of view Dr. Parkin saw good,
greater good than evil, in the war now
being waged. Only a war, he thought,
would lead us to grasp what Imperial
unity really means.
Moreover, from his point of view,
there wa8 a commercial, even if a cruel,
necessity in the war, inasmuch as it
meant retaining supremacy where it
was required. There were ��200,000,000
of British property afloat, and its ruin
meant more suffering and loss than any
other event that the world ever knew.
If the Suez canal were blocked, then
the only other link was by the Cape.
Chas. Dilke has stated that no other
spot on earth was so important to British commerce as the Cape of Good
Hope. Hence, the great importance of
maintaining British prestige there.
Perhaps no one iu the Empire has
���tudied more closely the problems of
the Empire than Dr. Parkin ; and his
eloquent deliverance will be a stimulus
to those who halt between two opinions,
the wickedness of war on one side, and
loyalty to Britain on the other. Significant of the feeling in Toronto was the
wild excitement of the audience on the
occasion referred to. Spasmodic in
many matters, the citizens of Toronto
remain constant in their demonstration
of patriotic sentiment.
SHOULD VISIT THE DISTRICT.
It is to be regretted that Hon. Wm.
Patterson, Minister of Customs, was unable to pay Boundary a visit, as was at
first anticipated. He would, in Greenwood, for instance, have had an opportunity of observing the local requirements
of his department.   He would have noted
the great quantity of freight unloading
here, the inadequacy of the staff to
handle the quantity of goods to be
cleared and the necessity which exists
for Greenwood being created an independent outport of entry. At present,
while it is commercially the most important point in tho district, it is only a
preventive station in the rank of customs
gradation. We do not expect with conditions of growth so rapid as they are
here, that the government can at a
distance anticipate in every respect the
development of twelve months; and it
is for that very reason that the visit of
the Minister of Customs at this juncture
was so important. It is important that
Cabinet Ministers, both federal and
provincial, should visit us when possible,
and remain long enough to learn personally something of its resources and
requirements.
OUR   "GROWING   TIME."
Greenwood is now enjoying what it
has long anticipated as the advent of the
railway era. The population is increasing rapidly, building is very active,
public improvements are going on apace,
ihe volume of travel and trafiic is very
large, and generally there is such an air
of progress, without inflation or boom, as
to indicate an undoubted future of prosperity. With the railway comes the
shipping era for the mines and the inauguration of the smelter industry, two
great mile pouts in the development of
a mining country. Already shipments
a're being made, and as soon as the steel
is laid into the spurs we shall witness a
steady output ol ore���a product in return lor the capital invested in the
district. Every mining camp lives on
foreign capital during the lirst stages of
its existence. No city ever entered the
period of its '���growing time" with better
prospects than Greenwood; because no
other place on the continent has greater
resources within tributary area than it
has. There is but one verdict on the
part of all visitors, and that is affirmative, of what is stated above. Its solid
progress invokes surprise.
Hon..David Mills' pamphlet on the
Alaskan boundary has attracted widespread and eminent attention. It has
called forth a long editorial from the
London Times, while the Literary Digest, a very widely circulated journal in
the United States, devotes two pages to
a summary of R. Mr. Mills' pamphlet
has done more than anything else to
bring Canada's case clearly before the
public mind of the United States and
Great Britain.

SUPT.   ROBBINS   IN NELSON
Speaks ol the Canadian Pacific Railway and
the Eight Hour Law:
Mr. Robbins, representing the Dominion Copper Co., was in town yesterday,
says tho Nelson Miner. In the course
of an interview he said :
"People may talk as they please, but
I know of no railway company on the
continent which is doing more to develop the country than the C, P. R. Iu
Nevada, for instance, the old Central
Pacific Co., now the Southern Pacific,
did nothing to help the mines or development. They refused to build any
branch lines to mining sections, and the
ore carried over their line was paid for
at the highest rate they could abstract
fjoni the mining men. It has been the
same in Arizona. In California, on the
other hand, the policy of the Denver &
Rio Grande line has been to encourage
the development of the mines iu every
way, and such doubtless is the policy of
theC.P.R." , ���   f
"Does the eight hour law affect you
over there?" asked the reporter.
��Oh ves," was the reply, "I would
have fifty more men at work could I get
them even at the Rossland rale of wages.
Iu Rossland the power drill men gel
|3;50 for an eight-hour day the ham-
mermen .,.-, and ihe mUcke. s $2.5 .
Now Wo feive.tho mucker, s.-.  a da)    ol
eight hours, and the hammermen $3 a
day, but they (the hammermen) want
as to give them $3.50���that is, 50 cents a
day more than they are paid in Rossland. As I say, I would have fifty more
men at work if I could get them at the
Rossland rate. The power drill men
are paid lfS.50, but there are very many
mines the Boundary where steam power
is not used, and in these mines the men
are demanding if.'i.50 a day This labor
trouble is unfortunate."
Mr. Kobbins went on to explain that
they did not, object to pay $8.60 a day
when men were working in wet places,
but they felt, that for ordinary work
they should not be called upon to pay
more than uas paid in Rowland.
THE   FIRST   SHIPPER
Direct By Kail From Greenwood to the Trail
Smelter.
The Boundary Creek Mining & Milling Co. on Saturday shipped from the
Gold Bug, Providence camp, Greenwood,
two carloads of very high grade ore to
the Trail smelter, this being the second
shipment from the property. The first
shipment, it is understood, went over
$i!75 in all values.
An aerial tramway has been constructed by Alex Sharpe; mine manager from
the  mine  to the railroad track, 200 feet
long, and ore 1ms been coming down for
several days. The shaft on the Gold
Bug is now down 100 feet, and they
nave drifted -10 feet on the lead. So far
as they have gone the same grade of ore
as previourly reported has been disclosed,
Faiewcll to Mr. Carlyle.
Rossi.->.'u, Nov. IH,���A large number
of citizens'-athcred at the railway station this moruing lo witness the departure of W. A. Carlyle, who left Rossland
to take up the mineral managership of
the great Rio Tinto mine in Spain with
the good wishes and cheers of all Rossland ringing in his ears. The dominant
note of all the speeches delivered was a
pride in the fact that Mr. Carlyle, as a
native Canadian, had been chosen for
such a high and important position,
coupled with the fact that his known
ability and integrity was a guarantee
that be would successfully fill his new
position in such a manner as to redound
to the credit of the whole dominion. In
fact, regret at his departure was for the
moment lost in the gratification evidenced in the fact of his being chosen
for the position.

OUR  ROSSLAND   LETTER.
The question of the growth of the
mineral industry here i�� one of increasing interest, as very much confidence
has been placed in its possibilities as interest on the investment is naturally
looked for by those who have staked
much in the venture. The character of
the ore bodies is thus awakening much
more interest than formerly, because the financial public is beginning to make investigation into the subject. This research must throw more
light on the question than was formerly
possessed, so that a better knowledge of
the whole question will thus be obtained.
At present the information is very
limited���confined to a few experienced
mining men, the great body of the people being more or less innocent of much
knowledge' on the subject. What is
wanted is more official geology on the
whole subject of the ore deposits of this
and other dension's, and should the
provincial and general government take
this in hand, it will no doubt materially assist the inventor, and prove of
great benefit to the various communities which are solely dependent upon
the mineral industry. One hears much
about capital, of its necessity, yet very
little is done to convince capitalists of
the character of the resources which
capital is expected to develop.
The lack of official data of the kind required by the intending investor is ano-
ticeablo thing compared with communities elsewhere. Kootenay is very much
behind the times.
The ore shipments from Rossland
mines have reached about 150,000 tons
fer the present year. The weekly shipments of lat i have alternated between
5,000 and 11,000 tons. The gross value of
the shipments is placed at about two
and one-half millions of dollars. The
increase over tlie corresponding period
of last year is about 50 per cent, so far
as tonnage is concerned. The valuation must be taken with some allowance, since it is difficult to find any one
that is not inclined to give way to the
prevailing weakness of exaggeration.
The extensive surface preparations to
increase the facilities for turning out
ore continue to be made by the leading
producers, the Le Roi, War Eagle, and
the Centre Star.
The ore in sight in these mines is, of
course, a question on which the outside
public knows but little, though the local
reputation of the mines does not permit
any reasonable doubts as to their present and future capacity to turn out large
quantities of ore for some time to come.
It is well known that the War Eagle
and the Centre Star have large reserves
of ore in sight, and that the system
which Mr. Hastings has adopted in this
respect is in accordance with modern
methods prevailing elsewhere.
The Le Roi, according to Mr. Carlyle,
is looking well, and some new reserves
are promised. I am assured that the
recent dividends paid by this company
have been paid out of ore aud not out of
stock manipulation. Mr. Carlyle is
very emphatic in his statements as to
this, as it has been stated that the profits, amounting to $250,000 have not
been paid out of ore production.
I hear that the Okanagan Free Gold
Mines will shortly make another distribution. Two bricks of gold weighing
about 200 ozs., the result of the second
clean-up, are on exhibition here, and
these are to be turned into dividends.
Much interest is felt in tbe coming
report of Mr. Hastings, joint manager
of the War Eagle and Centre Star. His
report will doubtless throw much light
on the whole subject of this trade.

THE
A Description
PROSPECTOR.
of the Men Who FoUow His
Fortunes.
There are prospectors and���prospectors. There are those wbo have followed
the calling of the prospector for years.
They occasionally strike a good thing
which they partially develop, and then
sell out. They prospect for the love of
the business, and seem to be happy only
when with burro, or old gray mare, loaded down with blankets, pick, pan and
shovel and "grub," they roam over
mountains in search of something good
���something that will fetch them a
"homestake" or enough to go to their
native heath and dream away the rest of
their lives. The seldom or never realize
the fruition of their hopes. They are
prospecting still. No climate is too torrid, none too frigid to deter them from
taking their chances in the "stampede."
The faither off the country the more
alluring the prospect appears, distance
seems to lend enchantment to their
' view.
Then again there are prospectors who
engage in the work from the force of
circumstances. They camp with the
first prospect they come across and make
or break by it. They don't last long. If
it is a bonanza they have struck they
realize what they can out of it and return to pleasanter fields of labor. At all
events they quit the business and follow
some other calling,*). Mountain trails
know them no more forever. In the
early days they were called "summer
prospectors," for they hugged warm
stoves rather than a cold blanket on
frosty ground. They may have been wise
in doing so, as far as their personal comfort was concerned. But they never
founded now mining camps, never
opened new mining sections, nor called
new mining territories or states into existence. .The summer prospector is a
weak brotheCin "roughing it."
The great northwest is the creation of
prospectors. The Forty-niners deepened
the tracks made by the first settlers of
Oregon, and later by the pioneers of Salt
Lake, and made a great state upon the
shores of the Pacific. The genos prospector sprang from the golden sands of
the land of sunshine and (lowers. lie
panned from Crescent City at the north
to San Diego at the south. He pans no
more, but thousands have taken his
place. They have hewn the way, blazed
the trails and pointed others to the wonderfully rich mineral fields in what was
then the howling wildernesses in the
"Great American Desert," but are now
the states of Nevada, Colorado, Utah,
Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. These great, prosperous, wealthy
commonwealths are the fruits of the
prospectors' toil, of their during, of their
persevering industry and of their bull-
dog-hang-on-ativeni'ss to the place where
"colors" were found.
One may say what
must admit that the i
the camping grounds upon which western towns and cities have since been
built; that he opened the way which
made it possible for the iron horse to
race around our great mountains into
thriving mineral centres, and that
through his never tiring industry Alaska
and northern British Columbia may yet
enjoy the fruits which an advanced civilization yields to this smiling northwest.���The Western Miner.

PICKED   SPECIMENS.
"It is a constant wonder to me," said
the student of human nature, "to see
how quickly the minds of some men act.
I met a man the other evening who had
an intellectual grasp that was astounding. I met him in the hall just as he
was reaching for an umbrella. 'Is that
your umbrella?' he enquired. ' No,'
replied I. ' In that case,' he answered,
1 it's mine.' "   	
Tom Corwin had an enormous mouth.
He once said he had been insulted by
Deacon Smith. The good brother asked
for further information. "Well," said
Corwin, "when 1 stood up at the lecture-
room to relate my experience, and I
opened my mouth, Deacon Smith rose
up in front, and said: ' Will som��
brother please close that window and
keep it closed.?'"
William T. Stead was moved to send a
copy of his brochure, "Shall I Slay My
Brother Boer ?" to two London editors.
One reply ran somewhat thus: "Dear
Mr. Stead : What in heaven's name,
have I to do with your family affairs ?
Yours sincerely, ."   And the other:
My Dear Sir:   "By  all  means���if  he
instate upon it.   Yours faithfully, ."
John I. Blair, in his earlier days,
owned a Western railroad along the
route of which he established a series of
lunch-rooms, at which employees of the
road were to be charged fifty cents and
all passengers seventy-five cents. Mr.
Blair once dined at on* of these places,
and concluding his meal, laid down a
half dollar. "Hold on !" cried the cashier, "you don't belong to this road." "I
know that," replied Mr. Blair, "the
road belongs to me."
The Senate has always been controlled
by lawyers, and Blaine was at a disadvantage because he did not belong to the
profession. The law-lords were disposed
to disparage and flout him, but he was
disrespectful to the verge of irreverence.
"Does the Senator from Maine, think I
am an idjit (.idiot) ?" roared Thunnan,
in reply to an interrogatory Blaine put
to him one day in the Pacific Railroad
debate. "Well," bellowed Blaine, "that
depends entirely on the answer you
make to my question ! "
Once when Edouard Pailleron, author
of "Le Monde ou Ton S'ennuie," dining at Mine. Aubernon de Nerville's,
ventured to interrupt by a subdued murmur one of Caro's lengthy perorations,
he was promptly quenched by their
hostess. "By and by, Pailleron, you
shall apeak in your turn." Caro's discourse only finished when dessert was
on the table. At its conclusion Mine.
Aubernon turned encouragingly toward
the interrupter: "Now, it's your turn,
Pailleron. What was it you wished to
say?" "I merely wished to ask for a
second helping of peas," was the unexpected rejoinder.
One day Bunsen sat with another
shining light of Heidelberg University,
who like him had had the highest honors bestowed upon him that could be
gained in a scientific career. Bunsen
was cool and taciturn, while his colleague never ceased to chatter of his financial losses, suffered through the
great fall in Turkish bonds. Bunsen remained silent while the other went on
to console himself in this wise: "I can
get a certain amount of consolation for
my bad investments out of the fact that
the great Helmholz himself invested
pretty heavily in Turkish bonds, and
has lost a lot of money, too."   Then, at
last Bunsen broke his silence with the
laconic words: "[didn't think Helm-
holt/, was so big a fool."
An old Irish laborer walked into the
luxurious studio of an artist, and asked
for money to obtain a meal. He explained that he had just been discharged from the county hospital, and was
too weak to work. He was given a
quarter and departed. One of the four
young ladies, art students, who were
present, said: "Mr. Madder, can't we
hire that old man and sketch him ?"
Madder ran out and caught him, and
said: "If you can't work, and want to
make a dollar, come back to my rooms.
The ladies want to paint you." The
Irishman hesitated, so Madder remarked: "It won't take long, and its an
easy way to make a dollar." Oi know
that," was the reply, "but Oi was a-
wonderin' how th' divil Oi'd git the
paint off.

Wagon Road to Phcenix.
with tbe exception of the City of Paris
group, very little development work has
been done during 1898-99. The prospects of Central camp are now brighter
than at any previous time, for with
three well-backed companies���the No. 7,
Loudon & B. C. Goldfields, and City of
Paris, respectively���doing continuous
development work, and with the camp
at last being connected by wagon road
with the the towns of Greenwood and
Grand Forks, it sbould soon receive the
prominent notice its valuable ore bodies
merit���Cor. Vancouver News-Advertiser.
Another three story hotel, owned by
Mr. Kaiser, has been completed and
was opened to the public Wwdnesday
night. We now have fine, well finished,
and well equipped hotels, one a four-
story, offering good accommodation to
the traveling public.
The Eholt Trading Company are now
able to fill all kinds of orders in the general line, while Mr. Thompson, and the
McKinnon Bros, are up-to-date in the
clothing line. What we want now is a
good hardware store.
The Oro Denero has twenty men engaged under Mr. Cochrane, the new
superintendent, and the work will be
pushed as rapidly as possible. The steel
is completed to the Oro Denero and B. C.
mines. A contract for 75,000 feet of
lumber has been let for tbe B, C. ore
bins, the construction of which will
commence next week.
A road is now completed to the Jewel
mine. Another new road has been
built to the B. C. mine, making the distance to this mine only one mile and a
quarter from Eholt.
A wagon road from Eholt to Phoenix
is talked of There are now five wagon
roads, and three railroads leading to
Eholt, all tapping some of the most valuable mineral wealth of the Boundary
Creek country.
TO SMELT REPUBLIC ORES.
Major Leckle Has   Arranged With Trail for
a Very low Rate.
Major Leckie, manager of the Republic mine, returned last Tuesday from an
extensive trip to Trail and Spokane.
While at Trail he perfected arrangements
for smelting Republic ores at a very low
cost and shipments will begin as soon
as the road toGrand Forks permits. The
ore will be from various levels and the
arrangements will likely continue until
the completion of the new mill. Major
Leckie states that the plans are being
harried for the new structure and that
work will soon begin on its construction.
The old mill was closed down on Thursday to permit some changes to be made
in the processes. It will be used as it
were for an experiment station, with the
new cyanidation process to be used in
the new mill. Tbe work on tho rise
from tunnel No, 4 to No. 3 is rapidly
Hearing completion.���Republic   .Miner.
Da Central Camp,
Mr. C, E, Fradgley, who has been for
some time in tbe Slocan, Nelson and
Ymir districts, is now in charge at the
Norfolk. This claim, together with the
adjoining New York claim, is owned hy
the London & B. C. Goldfields, Limited.
It is expected that eight or ten men will
be employed through the \\ inter, on
this property, into which the No. 7
ledge extends. Two prospecting shafts
will probably be sunk and other exploratory work be done in search of ore
bodies on one or both of the claims. It
is gratifying to have a Company so strong
financially as this one is, operating in

The Winnipeg Ledge.
Mr. T. Edgar Blewman has returned
from a visit to the Boundary country,
where he has been for the past week.
One of the special objects of his trip
was to ascertain the value of the recent
find on the 300-foot level of the Winnipeg. He says the ledge is between 45
and 50 feet wide, and assays of samples
taken from five different points gave average returns of $16 per ton. There is
no sign of this ledge on the surface.
The ledge is in the northern portion of
the mine. On the south side there is
another large ledge, which was recently
uncovered on the surface by the railway
graders. A cross-cut is being driven toward this. It has been driven for a distance of about 400 feet, and will have to
be lengthened 150 feet before it is met.
Besides the two ledges there is the
one on which a great doal of work has
been done, and which is opened to the
300-foot level���Rossland Miner.

More Trouble   About C. P, R. Shipments  to
Republic.
There appears to be no end of trouble
over tlie shipment of machinery and
other freight over the C. P R. for Republic. It was thought all difficulties
in the form of United States customs
regulations had been removed, but Col.
Heustis, the United States customs
office, at Port Townsend, has written a
letter to the C. P. R. authorities saying
the treasury department at Washington
has decided that the shipments as proposed cannot be allowed because of the
violation of a section of the law regarding the breaking of the seals on shipments before they reach the Boundary
line. As it is novy, shipments for Republic come over the C. P. li. to the
Grand Forks depot, and the seals are
broken and the consignments loaded
into wagons and hauled several miles
through British territory before reaching
the boundary line at Nelson.
Traveling Freight Agent McDonnell
went to Republic Thursday carrying with
him a petition to the secretary of the
treasury at Washington setting forth the
hardships that will fall upon mine owners and shippers generally if shipments
via Grand Forks are prohibited. It is
proposed to bave the Mountain Lion,
Republic and Republic Reduction company people, all of whom are going to
build big mills, sign his petition and forward it at once.
These   three   concerns    bave    nearly
2,000,000 pounds  of  machinery  coming I
for their mills and they want the short- j
est possible wagon haul on it so they are
anxiOUS to have it come via Grand Forks.
Two or three car loads of the  Mountain,
Lion machinery  are already   here  and
some has been actually unloaded and
placed on wagons and started to Repub- 1
lie.   This may be turned back  and may
have   to be   reloaded   and sent around
to Bossburg.
Altogether there is a most unhappy
I and unfortunate state of affairs. Tlie
I loss and inconvenience to the Republic
I mine owners and shippers would be
! enormous and it is not impossible that
I there may be a sort of indignation meet-
, ing in the big reservation cam p.���G rand

Frazee vs Cameron. Action on account of $82.00 for goods supplied to
Rossland Hotel by plaintiff from plaintiff's store. Defendant licensee of hotel,
but had sublet his dining room to one
Legusee, who had received and used the
goods and defendant repudiated any
libility. Plaintiff claimed Cameron had
agreed to pay for the goods which Cameron denied. Goods were charged to
Rossland Hotel. Evidence of Mr. and
Mrs. Frazee and Mr. Cameron heard
when defendant's solicitor applied for
an adjournment on account of absence
of material witness. Granted on terms
that money in dispute and costs should
be paid into Court. Leamy & Gray for
plaintiff and Black and McLeod for defendant.
John Mulligan vs Blueetal. Mulligan
and George Rumberger are owners of the
Wheeling mineral claim and Mulligan
claimed that defendents had entered in
said claim and cut and hauled away timber without permission. The evidence
of Mulligan was taken when his Honor
suggested that as there was some doubts
as to the interest the owner of a mineral claim had in the timber grown upon
it, and as the doubt had not arisen before the parties concur in stating a case
to him on which he would deliver a
written judgement. This was agreed to
by the Solicitors for the parties.
