THE WELCOME SOUND
Of  the- Lc<��motfve Whistle
Heard in Greenwood.
Track Laid Into Centre of the City
Wednesday ��� Noon, Followed by a
Special' Train at 4:80 p. m.
The long looked and hoped for has at
last arrived; For several days the
whistle of the track-laying engine was
heard in the distance. Daring the forenoon of Wednesday it gladdened the
hearts of our city to see the engine and
track-laying outfit move slowly along in
sight of the town. About noon they
reached the point where the station is
to be erected. Fvery time the whistle
tooted it was responded to joyously by
some one or more delighted citizens.
When the point referred to was reached
operations suspended for the day: It- is
needless to say that a large number of
persons went down to see the work of
track-laying, which' was- sufficiently in*
teresting in itself to attract sightseers.
Later on news was received that a
special party, including Mr. Shaugh-
nessy, president, would" arrive at 5
o'clock in a special car, and many eyes
were strained to catch a sight of what
would:be the*very first passenger coach
in Greenwood. Shortly after four the
train arrived, and:' the occupants < dib-
mounted and were driven to the Clarendon, where they had dinner. The president of the road, however, was not one
of themumber. The party was made up
of Collingwood Schreiber, deputy min--
istsr of railways, Ottawa, and his private secretary, C. H. Ross; W. H.
Aldridge, manager of the Trail Smelter;
W. F. Tye, superintendent of construction, Trail; F. W. Peters, district
freight agent, Nelson; A, C. Dennis,
track engineer, J. W. Kimball, auditor,
of Trail; and* Mesdames<- Cromlie-,
Ottawa; Georgihne, Toronto; A. W.
Ross, Columbia-; The special train with
the above party on board left Robson at
9 -.15 a. m. and arrived at Grand Forks at
12:50, leaving again for Greenwood at
2:45 p. m. A stop of 15 minutes was
made at Eholt. Greenwood was
reached at 4:30. The train left again at
9:30 a. m. on Thursday for Robson, all
well pleased with their visit.
The Miner representative had a chat
with several members of the party. Mr,
Schreiber is hern on an official tour of
inspection. He expresses himself as
well pleased with the road, and is particular struck with the progress of the
Boundary district. He regards the
growth and present state of; Greenwood
as remarkable. Mr. Schreiber is one of
the pioneer and very oldest railway men
in Canada, having been engaged almost
continuously asrail way engineer and in
other official capacities since 1852, when
he came to Canada from England. He
is one of the best known of Canada's
civil servants, and in recognition of his
services was created a Companion of the
Order of !~'t. Michael and St. George in
1893.
Mr. Tye, the superintendent of construction, said the track-laying would
Continue just as far as *��d- a-s fast as
there is Bteel rails to lay Owing
to the great demand for material on account of the activity in railway construction, rails that had been ordered in
January last to arrive months ago^.were
only now being delivered. It was simply
impossible despite the efforts made to
get material sooner, and now in order to
hurry through several weights of rails
were being used, which later on would
be made uniform. The utmost despatch
had been employed to get to Greenwood. A temporary freight shed would
be built immediately, and an agent, already appointed would be put in
charge. E.��� R. Red path, late of Roson,
is the appointee. Freight would be delivered in Greenwood in a few days, and
passenger trains would arrive just as
aeon as the road, was passed by the government.
Mr. Peters, while confirming in main
what Mr. Tye had stated; added that
owing to the fact that consignees would
not, or had not, taken delivery at Grand
Forks, freight was very much congested at that point,-and the operations of
the company very much hampered.
Important-orders had to be held back.
When, however, the trains came into
Greenwood delivery would have to be
accepted at once, as there were no facilities for sidetracking or storing, and
cars were worth gold to the C. P. R.
Both Mr. Tye and Mr. Peters expressed
their strong desire to meet the people of
Greenwood in every way possible. In
this connection, Mayor Hardy interviewed them as to certain railway
crossings and grades, about which there
had been misunderstanding and a possibility of conflict. As a result of the interview the Mayor had assurances from
Mr. Tye that the legitimate demands of
the city would be looked into and complied with.
Mr. Aldridge, superintendent of the
Trail smelter, simply came in as a guest
of Mr. Tye. The ladies were also in the
latter category. The male members of
the'party were entertained at ,the Club
on Wednesday evening,
FAIR   NOTES.
A  Prominent Greenwood Mining Man;: Bids
Farewell to Bachelordom.
International day was a fizzle, even
though British Columbia was represented by Col. Topping.
Elks day was, next to Press day, the
big one of the fair, and wound up with
Thos. ID. McDonnell, the well known
broker and mining mnn of Greenwood,
taking a last farewell to bachelordom,
The bride was Miss Katie Wolford, of
Colville, Wash. Mr. McDonnell will return to Greenwood in a few days, and
make ready a home for his wife.
WORK PROGRESSING
Staisfactory   on   the Mother
Lode Smelter.
Levelling and Excavation Well on to
Completion ��� Thirty Men are at
Work.
The First Shipment.
F. M. McLeod, of Grand Forks, who
bonded the Yankee Girl and Yankee
Boy on Hardy Mountain six weeks ago,
recently shipped a carload of twenty
tons of ore to the Trail smelter. This
is among the first shipment of ore
from the Boundary country. It is expected to average $100 in gold and silver. The properties are only one and
one-half miles from Grand Forks. A
shaft has been sunk 100 feet. It is connected with a tunnel 100 feet long.
Near the face of the tunnel a cross-cut
has been driven thirteen feet, and in it
the ore body is from twelve to twenty
feet wide. The latest assay gave 29 ozs.
gold and 12 ozs, silver,
with due regard to cost, will produce
the best results. He has charge of the
reduction works of the De La Mar, or
Golden Gate mines, at Mercur, fifty
miles from Salt Lake City. There a
combination process in which cyanide is
the most active principle is utilized. It
was, invented by Mr. Jackling, and enables the mine; owners to handle- $3.00
ore at a profit. Mr. Jackling stated
that he has heard a great deal about the
Boundary, and intends to make a tour
of it when he gets through at Republic.
Work on the smelter site is steadily
progressing and things are beginning to
assume definite shape. Thirty-five men
are engaged. Since the last report has
been published a lot of work has been
done. The second bench on which the
furniaces, boilers and dust chambers are
to be erected has been made ready for
the erection and construction of these.
The iStone work on the retaining walls
has been begun. The whole surface,
400 feet long by 80 feet wide, has. been
cleared off, requiring considerable excavation. Along .the inside wall of the
excavation, the flume or dust chamber,
12 feet wide by 16 feet high, will be built,
and when extended up the hill to the
base of the stack, will be 700 feet long.
Along the outer edge will be located the
furnaces and the boilers, with sufficient
space allotted them that six furnaces,
each with 300 ton capacity, may be
erected, and corresponding boiler and
engine room, so that the ultimate capacity of the smelter as required will be
1,800 tons.daily.
On the second bench, which is also
being levelled off rapidly, will be located the ore, coal and coke bins, the superficial area required for which being
550 feet in length by 200 feet in width.
At the present time it is proposed to
erect 48 ore bins, each with a capacity
of 120 tons. This accommodation will
be extended as required to take care of
15,000 tons of ore. On this level the offices of the company will be located.
Two of a temporary character have already been bui.lt, and are occupied as
drafting and general offices.
Above this level again, which brings
it almost to the railway spur of the
Mother Lode, ��ill be the sampling mill,
to have a present -capacity of 500 tons in
24 hours Next to the sampling mill
will be located bins into which to discharge oro ironi the cars. As has been
stated previously, the site in an ideal
one, with natural gravitation from the
point of discharge at the railway spur to
the point where the refined matter is
loaded on the cars, the minimum of
labor being required; and each part so
constructed as to be capable of extension to the ultimate limit of 1,800 tons
daily. Paul Johnson was very pleased
to hear the train whistle on Wednesday
and immediately telegraphed the news
to New York. Construction will be
greatly facilitated and accelerated as a.
consequence.
SPOKANE INDUSTRIAL.
notes from the Miner's Commissioner -Closlnt"
Days.
SpoKANK,.Wash., Oot.,14, 1899,.
The Industrial Exposition close* to- .
morrow night and will have, been a. very .
successful; affair throughout,, although,
the daily attendance has not been up to-
previous years,, but the increase, in the
admission fee has,, increased the,sum
total.
The mineral exhibit is beginning to
decrease   in   magnitude,   hundreds   of
specimens  of  ore  from  the,, different,,
camps changing hands and being, tak.cn
all  over  the. northwestern- states and..
British Columbia.
The Grand Army band i of. Canton,
Ohio, has been a great drawingcard for
the exposition, and the management are
to be congratulated upon their, success
in obtaining snch an acquisition to the
musical department.
Greenwood and the surrounding district! are as well or better knqwnrand as
favorably spoken of asany mining section represented,at the. exposition, aud
are looked upon as a marvel in the way
of big ledges of copper ore.
Many are waiting for railway facilities
to be perfected when, they will go,; into..
the camp by scores; and ere,, long the
already long list of broker firms will be
increased by more from. Spokane.
It is understood here that J. P.
Graves has purchased a controlling
interest in the Golden. Eagle on. the
North Fork from Sharpo aud; Barrett.
This,property, which was lately incor-r
porated as the Royal Victoria .Mining
Co., adjoins the���Volcanic group, ,and|lhb,
development work already done has
shown up a fine body of rich copper ore,
and gives to the property the eari-murka.,
of a big mine.
Mr. Parkinson, of the Pathfinder, h;;*,
on exhibition some fine specimens of
iron phosphates, a mineral rarely found,
in any section of the northwest mining,
districts, which, in this case, also gives
fair values in gpld and cropper. .Mr.
Parkinson is in the city arranging for
the installation of machinery upon, hit
property. W. S.Kkith.
To Treat Republic Ores.
D. C. Jackling, who is famed for his
discoveries in metallurgy, is at Republic. The object of his visit to the American camp is to report on behalf of the
management respecting the best method of treating the ores of Republic mine.
Both cyanide and smelting have been
suggested. Mr. Jackling is exected to
solve the problem as to which method,
A Railway Bajmuet.
Notwithstanding, the. arrival of the
track-laying engine on Wednesday,
which was sooner than a. good many anticipated, its failure to be. here on the
first of the month, won for W. L. Hogg,
of Montreal, a number of overcoats,
which were liquidated, consolidated and
otherwise converted into. a. banquet,
which was held iu the. Clarendon Saturday night, and enjoyed as thoroughly as
the prospects of a railway a few days
later. Some of our citizen passers-by
even concluded that the celebration of
editors' day had been transferred to
Greenwood from Spokane. THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.

A contract has just been let by the
management of the B. C. mine in Summit camp to sink an ���additional LOO feet
to the 230-foot level. The main working shaft is down 130 feet, and will be
16)^x8, the standard size. The air shaft
from the 130-foot level has been completed to the surface. It has greatly improved the ventilation of the mine.
The new and enlarged compressor plant
and hoist are expected from Montreal
within the next few weeks. The grading of the C. P. R. spur to the mine has
been completed, and the rails will be
laid this fall. Regular shipments will
begin in December or January. The ore
on the dump exceeds eleven thousand
tons.

WAR   IN   THE   TRANSVAAL.
War having at last broken out in the
Transvaal, the people of British Columbia, in common with the subjects of Her
Majesty the world over, will watch with
keen interest its progress at every stage,
and join with them in the most loyal
and sincere desire for the success of the
British arms. Already enlistments are
taking place, and British Columbia
with the other provinces will contribute
its quota to Imperial defence. The war
in South Africa has a peculiar interest
for our people inasmuch as the interests
of the two countries are to some extent
identical, and as the result in any event
will have an influence on the development of this country. The war has
arisen out of complications largely the
result of mining, mining laws, and polit-
cal conditions affecting mining.
There can be no doubt as to the outcome of the war. The prestige of the
British Empire is at take, and the resources of the Empire are behind it.
While the Boers may, by the advantages
of the situation locally, and of preparedness, at the outset harass the British
and even win small victories, the certain though slow mobilization, concentration, and disposition of our forces
mean inevitable defeat to the enemy.
It is a war deeply to be regretted, as all
wars are, but particularly so in this case.
Great Britain, however, has had her
hand forced. President Kruger representing the Boer influence in South Africa, which ia opposed to British interests and British ideas and institutions,
is infatuated by the hopes of success
based on the belief that Providence is
on his side, and will by the aid of sharp-
shooting decide in his favor. It is the
same sort of fanaticism that inspired the
Mahdi.
As it appears now tbe war is one of
Boer against Briton, or as has been
still more aptly put by a writer on
South Africa, the inevitable contest between Afrikander and Anglo-Saxon.
Just now the opposing forces are fencing
for position, each waiting for the other
to attack. In a country like the Transvaal strategem must play a large part,
and although the Boers are adepts in
guerilla warfare, and are fighting on
their own grounds, with a perfect know
ledge of local conditions, the British
have had great experience in just such
fighting, and can match cunning, strategem and sharpshooting with equal skill,
added to which are bravery, generalship
and the proverbial bulldog pluck and
endurance of the Anglo-Saxon.
MANIFESTLY   UNFAIR.
The prizes for the mineral exhibit
have been awarded, and we must say
that we consider them far from satisfactory, and many others express the same
opinion.
In the district exhibit Sumpter, Ore.,
with a large display of ore of one char-,
acter. gets first, Buffalo Hump with a
email exhibit of inferior ore gets second,
and Boundary Creek, with the largest
exhibit of ore of ��very character and
grade, gets third prize. This is manifestly unfair, and the making of such
awards will not be conducive io large,
or any, exhibits from the surrounding
districts in future years.
In the individual exhibition the
Boundary Creek Mining & Milling Co's.
properties take second prize. In the
capper ores BoinfeMfy Greek, with its
fine showing of chalcopyrite, bornite,
glance, and native copper, gets no mention. In the copper-gold ores Rossland,
with less than a dozen specimen exhibits, gets first place; and Boundary Creek,
with tone of ore well-exhibited, is relegated again to second plate.
We have no hesitation in affirming
that Boundary Creek district has the
finest mineral exhibit at the exhibition,
consisting as it does of rich gold-bearing
quartz, high grade galena, tellurides,
and chalcopyrites, and should have received the first prize in the district exhibit, instead of being insulted with the
third.
The Victoria Colonist, heretofore regarded as the main exponent of the
Liberal-Conservatives in British Columbia, has expressed itself in terms of
strong disapproval regarding the program adopted at New Westminster. In
this respect it echoes the feelings of a
number of the Victoria members of the
party, some of which are in open revolt.
Tbe Dunsmuir influence particularly is
against the platform, which is looked
upon as too radical. On the other hand
the adherents of the party in Vancouver
and New Westminster are enthusiastically in favor of the new departure.
The Trail Creek News wondei* if there
is to be a future for that town. There is
not the slightest doubt about it, a fact
which should be suggested by the fumes
of the smelter at that point, It hue also
a present.
The wealth of Butte, Montans, is estimated at $5,000 for each person in that
city. It is not, however, distributed in
that proportion.
THE BLUE JAT.
One of the Promising Properties Bear Greenwood Just Developing Into a Mine.
The Blue Jay was located in 1895 by
Mike Kane and is now owned by Kane,
Edwards, Parry and Clune. It is situated in Skylark camp, or rather between
Skylark and Greenwood. It is a
promising property in every sense of the
word and as the owners know a good
thing when they see it they are using
every effort to push development work
which so far is progressing in a very
satisfactory manner and is showing up
better ore with every foot of work. At
the 70-foot level they found both walls
and find the ledge to be 20 feet wide
and assaying gold values. They have
two shafts one of 75 feet and the other
40 feet. In the 75-foot shaft they have
a fine grade of iron and quartz ore which
very much resembles that of the Winnipeg mine in Wellington camp. Mr. Edwards is working on a contract which
when completed will leave this shaft 90
feet deep. They are at present working
on a fine body of ore, getting better
with every foot of development and expect to finish the contract by the first of
next month. The other shaft, 40 feet
deep, is in a fine ore body which assays
$25 and the ledge is here well defined.
They have also done some surface work
consisting of an open cut of 60 feet on
the ledge. Mr. Edwards, who has the
contract, was seen by the Minsk reporter
and he says this property has the finest
showing in the district and will develop
into a paying proposition for the owners.
Next week they will have a well-known
expert to work on the property and expect a favorable report. Two shifts are
at work day and night and everything ii
going along smoothly.
Strike at Burnt Basin.
A. E. Ashcroft, of the firm of Bauer &
Ashcroft, surveyors, returned from
Burnt Basin last Sunday, and brought
news of a fine strike on the Unexpected
claim in that district, owned by Jackson Bros. It is on an eight-foot ledge,
with well defined walls, showing pyrrho-
tite and chalcopyrite ore which will assay good values. The Mother Lode of
that district is also showing up well, and
improving as development work progresses.     	
On the Maple Leaf.
The main shaft on the Maple Leaf, of
the Rathmullen group, in Summit
camp, is now down 125 feet, and will be
continued to the 200-foot level, when it
is expected that the ledge will be encountered. The same ledge is traversed
by a drift running from the 75-foot level.
With the new compressor the shaft is
being sunk at the rate of two feet a day

is largely interested witli Rufus Pope,
M. P., and F. P. Buck, all of the Eastern
Townships, in the Buckhorn, War Eagle

allowing on the Buckhorn and the prospects of mining development generally.
Mr. Bailey is largely interested in mills
east and other industrial enterprises.
He says that the people in his section of
the country and in Montreal are taking
a keen interest in mines, ami among investors Boundary properties are decidedly in favor. However, the mining industry is not wholly confined to the
Province of British Columbia. In
Quebec itself there are a number of good
mines, and in his own section there are
favorable showings in copper and gold.
F. P. Buck is expected in Greenwood on
Saturday.
The Lumber Trait.
(I. O. Buchanan, Kaslo, Louis Blue
and P. Genelle, Rossland, have been in
town for several days in connection
with the proposed lumber trust. There
is nothing definite to report in connection with the matter, except that the
project of consolidating all the mills in
Kootenay and Boundary has progressed
a stage. It is a scheme which takes a
long time to complete.
Camp McKinney.
Work on the Little Cariboo mine, in
Camp McKinney, will be resumed within a few days. The property has been
idle for some time, and has been burdened with debt, which threatened to
swamp it. But the debts have all been
paid, and at the annual meeting of the
company Monday evening, the report of
the officers showed the company in excellent financial condition, with no outstanding obligations, and with a substantial sum in hand for starting development. The property adjoins the famous Cariboo mine, and is said to have
produced favorable values in the shaft,
which afterwards passed through the
vein, and up to the time of stopping
work last spring the workings had not
been driven back into the ore, so that
the values at the lowest depth attained
are unknown.
The annual meeting resulted in almost a complete change of officers, and
the management will in the future be
in new hands. N. B. Buckler has been
elected president and general manager;
C. D. Rand is the new vice-president;
H. J. Kressly succeeds himself as
treasurer, and L. Mart Patton is secretary. All of those except Mr. Patton
are directors, and the additional members of the board are A. C. Jamison, J.
F. Reddy, C. K. Merriam, and W. A.
Nicholls.
The ���Winnipeg Will Ship Ore.
Duncan Mcintosh, president and manager of the Winnipeg mine in Wellington camp, while in Rossland said: "I
am down here to arrange with the Trail
smelter for treatment of our ore. We
have on our dumps 10,000 tons ready for
shipment. At a conservative figure I
believe this ore will net about $25 to the
ton. Our workings are at a depth "f
300 feet, where we have two to seven
feet of solid pyrrhntite in the drifts."
When asked regarding the truth of n
report that a railroad spur which is being run from Eholt to the mine had
opened up another big oro showing on
the Winnipeg, he said : "The report is
true. In doing the necessary grading on
our claim, the workmen opened a ledge
45 feet along its length. We started a
cross-cut to determine the extent of the
ledge, and ran through it a distance of
30 feet without coming to any walls. A
shaft is being sunk on the discovery.
The values are exceptionally rich. Five
samples of ore from the surface showed
rich values in copper, and gave an average in gold, silver and copper of $80 per
ton. As soon as steel is laid we shall
start shipping. The railway grading is
practically completed."
The Greenwood Clnb Ball.
According to announcement the

TBE   TBANSVAAL   WAR.
How in Progress With Several Battles Reported.
Rossland, Oct. 20.���(Special to the
Miner.) Glencoe camp has been attacked by a great force of Boers, who
posted guns on the hills overlooking the
town, and opened fire on the camp.
The battle is now general. The police
withdrew from Nryburg Sunday, and
the Boers captured the place. The Cape
Boers in Nryburg notified the enemy
of its defenceless condition. The Burghers, accordingly seized it. There are
vague rumors that the Boers attacking
Mafeking were lured over the dynamite
mines and 1,600 killed-
REPORTED REPULSE OF BORES.
London, Oct. 17.���A special dispatch
from Cape Town says that at Mafeking
Colonel Baden Powell has repulsed the
Boers with a loss of 300 burghers. The
British made a sortie in force from Mafeking and attacked the Boers, who
were investing the town. After a fierce
fight the British carried the day, with
only 18 Britishers killed.
The engagement there commenced on
Sunday and continued yesterday, when
an armored train sent to repair the railway line fired on the Boers. One
burgher was killed and two were
wounded. The British retired in the
direction of town, but returned to the
attack soon after, when two Boers were
killed and three wounded.
Nelson  Volunteers.
When Captain Hodgins of the Nelson
company of the Rocky Mountain rifles
closed his office last night, thirty-five
good and true men had volunteered for
service in the Canadian contingent for
active service against the Boers in
South Africa. Exclusive of three of the
company's officers, the following are the
names of those volunteering: W. J. G.
Dickson, C. E. Beasley, G. J. Fader, F.
Boyd, H. Gervan, F. W. Smith, C. H.

of the deceased was John C. M. Davis,
and he was about 65 years of age. He
was formerly of Calgary, and was at the
time of his death hauling lumber on his
own account from Tillman's saw mill
to Phcenix. He had a good freighting
outfit, but apparantly no other means.
From a letter found in one of his pockets he appears to have a daughter attending the Sacred Heart Convent
school, at Goodwin, Washington. He
is reported to also have two sisters,
whose whereabouts are not known locally. The school teacher at Phcenix
had the body removed to that town,
where it was placed in charge of T. M.
Gulley for burial.
Hewitt Bostock, M. P., Visits Greenwood.
Hewitt Bostock, M. P., arrived here
on Wednesday afternoon from Grand
Forks, accompanied by A. B. Clabon, of
the North Fork. Owing to the concert
to be held that evening it was arranged
to have a meeting on the following evening in Rendell's hall, and Mr. Bostock
returned to Phcenix where he addressed
a fair gatkering on matters connected
with the interests of the district. It
was thought that the Hon. Mr. Fisher,
Minister of Agriculture, would be present also, but owing to previous engagements he was obliged to turn back after
reaching Grand Forks. The meeting in
Rendell's hall last evening was called
under the auspices of the Board of
Trade, citizens generally being invited.
The attendance was not as large as
might have been had tbe conditions of
weather, etc., been more favorable.
Mayor Hardy occupied the chair, and
referred to the matters of local interest
to be brought to Mr. Bostock's attention.
These were fully and clearly discussed
by the speaker, and short addresses
were afterwards made by G. O. Buchanan, Kaslo; Andrew Leamy and
Duncan Ross. A more detailed report
will appear next week. Mr. Bostock
goes out to the main line of the C. P. R.
via Midwav and Penticton.
School Board.
A meeting was held in Rendell's Hall
on Saturday last in accordance with the
notice to that effect, for the purpose of
nominating school trustees. Only three
names were submitted and the gentlemen nominated were declared elected
by Presiding Officer Hallett. The trustees elect are: R. Smailes, James Russell and R. E. Gosnell, for one, two and
three years, respectively.
On Wednesday the trustees met and
organized. Mr. Russell was elected
chairman and Mr. Gosnell secretary. It
was decided to advertise for two teachers, a principal and an assistant, and to
make other arrangements for the opening of the schools on or about the first of
November. ���

Explosion at Phoenix.
Early yesterday morning an explosion of dynamite occured at the Old Ironsides mine, Phcenix, in which three
cases of dynamite went off accidentally.
The dynamite was being thawed for use
in the mine. Fortunately no one was
about at the time, and consequently no
one was hurt, but the damage in the
way of broken glass in the town was
considerable. The men were just about
going for the dynamite to take it down
in the mine when the explosion occured.
It is supposed that in their absence the
water boiled dry. No other cause is assigned.      	
More newspapers.
Eber C. Smith, late of the Rossland
Record, is issuing a daily paper at
Grand Forks, the first number appearing on Monday last. It is called the
Grand Forks Daily Gazette. In the
same issue the proprietor announces
that he will publish a six-column weekly in Phoenix, the plant for which is already on hand at the Gazette office. It
is to be managed by W. B. Wilcox, of
the Cascade Record. The newspaper
situation is becoming quite interesting.
Fatal Accident.
On Friday afternoon 13th inst. several
freighters travelling along the wagon
road eastwards from Anaconda discovered the dead body of another freighter
on the road about half a mile from the
Summit house. Provincial Constable
G. Cunningham went up from Midway
to make inquiries, and he ascertained
that when found the body was lying face
upwards with one of the wheels of a
wagon, laden with 1,500 feet of green
lumber resting on its chest.   The name
The Columbia Winner.
The bulletins to-day announced that
the Columbia finished in 2:40 and the
Shamrock in 2:45, thus giving the Columbia all three races. The lesson of
the rather protracted sailing is that the
Columbia is decidely the superior with
wind, but that the Shamrock is the better drifter.
We are prepared to welcome guests and provide best accommodations.

Drummer's Development Co's. Properties.
R. D. Johnson, a Cripple Creek pioneer,
organized the Drummer's Development
Co. in June last to work a group of four
claims on Deer creek near Curlew,
Wash., a point fifteen miles from
Grand Forks. He stated the other day
that the ledge on the property varies
from twenty to forty feet in width, and
has been opened up by means of open
cuts for a distance of eight hundred
feet. A shaft on the side line of two of
the claims, the Cyclone and Tornado,
has been sunk seventy feet, and will be
continued to the 100-foot level before
cross-cutting is begun. The ore is copper-silver-lead, and carries some bismuth. The pay-streak, according to
Mr. Johnson, is about three feet wide,
and values vary from $30 to $50 per ton.
The other claims in the group
are the Keystone and Cuttyrsark.
There are twenty-five tons of ore on the
dump.
Mr. Johnson recently sold the Top
Hand, on Deer creek, two miles from
Curlew, to .7. O. B. Scobey, of Olympia,
Wash., wl.o represented Chicago parties,
for $20,000. It is a copper-sllver-lead
proposition. Development work commenced on the 15th inst. A tunnel
will be run 500 feet to tap three leads.

PRIZES   AWARDED.
Judges Complete Their Work in Mineral Department.
The awards have all been made in the
mineral department of the Exposition.
The judges were Professor Henry Landes,
of the Washington State University, Seattle; Professor S. Shedd, School of Science, Pullman; Dr. A. S. Miller, Idaho
State University, Moscow, Idaho.
There were prizes enough to satisfy
almost everybody. The prizes are not
intrinsically valuable, being mostly silver and bronze medals, but they represent success in the keenest competition
that could be brought about in a mineral
display. There has been much interest
in the result of the contest, not only on
the part of those in charge of the exhibits, but on the part of many who have
visited the department. The medals
are all struck, and will be engraved and
presented to the exhibitors before the
closing of the Exposition.
The two first prizes in the list below
call each for a gold medal, the first
prizes in ten following, and the hist two
awards call for silver medals, and the
other first prizes call each for a bronze
medal. Second prizes are either silver or
bronze medals, or diplomas, and where
third prizes are awarded diplomas cover

Association Football.
On Saturday afternoon an Association
football mutch between the "Saints"
anil the "Town" was played on tho hall
grounds, resulting in a victory for tho
"Saints" by one goal. A cold wind
prevented a large number of spectators
from witnessing the game, but those
who did turn out saw several funny
pieces of play, and three or four smart
plays by the forwards on each side.
The backs and half-backs showed some
strong playing, which prevented more
goals being scored.
The teams were as follows: "Saints"
���Palmer, goal; Inkster and RobertBon,
backs; Lewin, Smith, and Coulter, halfbacks; Mortimer, Chesterton, Shaw,
Hill, and Grey, forwards.

TKB   GREENWOOD   MINER,
FridayVOct; 20,1890'
SOME   IMPRESSIONS.
Of a Trip to the Cout hy the Miner Representative.
From Robson to Revelstoke travel is
very quiet. This is accounted for by the
fact that the opening of the Crow's
Nest Hue and the C. & W. railway into
Boundary have diverted a lot of travel.
All along, the Columbia business is comparatively quiet. The rush and bustle
are into Boundary, Nelson, and Rossland. When the main line is reached,
however.,' you are introduced to the travel of the Imperial limited, which maintain! the' popularity of the Canadian
Pacific.; The Imperial in a flyer and no
mistake*, but owing to the speed it is not
easy to keep up to the time schedule.
It is probable that during the winter
season, when travel is naturally light,
there will be a return, to tbe old time
table.   Speed means expense.
Talking of communication, Greenwood is yet farther removed from the
world than we imagine. On Tuesday at
5 o'clock, I wanted to post a letter for
last week's Miner, but found it would
not reach Greenwood until after the
paper was out and mailed. It .will
probably.be some months yet before the
authorities at Ottawa discover that
there is a railway into the Boundary.
It is a way Governments have. In the.
meantime the mail goes by stage via
Bossburg,
At Westminster the Provincial Fair
waa on, and the city was filled with visitors. The fair was the finest ever held.
The fruit was not up to the usual, standard, that is from the lower mainland,
owing to the unfavorable year; but the
stock was excellent. The upper country, including the Okanagan, made a
fine display; and suggests the great possibilities of that district���our natural
source of, supply. All lines, with the
exception named, were splendidly represented. There was a good showing of
minerals from the Kootenay; and in
this connection I cannot I help but suggest the desirability of Boundary sending an exhibit next year. The fair at
Westminster is a truly'provincial one,
and should be fully representative���
merely^as a matter of sentiment if not
utility. There is another reason,
and a more cogent one. I found that
the Boundary is the least known, appreciated, and understood: of all the
mining districts of British Columbia.
It is hard to make the people understand its importance, and the remark-
a ble extent and quality of its ore deposits. A good big exhibit placarded
"Boundary" would assist in this direction. It is important to reach the ear
of the coast cities, because there, are
many representatives of capital there;
but Atlin and Yukon are. much more attractive. Boundary appears to be a
long way off.
In addition to tbe fair there were two
conventions, that of the Liberal-Conservatives and of Fire Chiefs. Both
were important and well attended. The
Liberal-Conservatives met in the Opera
House, and represented all parts of the
Province from Atlin to Midway, Nelson
excepted���about 150 in all. The meeting was a most harmonious one, and the
proceedings significant. It was decided to introduce Dominion party lines
into Provincial politics, and make a
straight fight of it. For this purpose a
provincial platform was prepared and
adopted, the principal planks of which
were Government ownership of railways, and recognition of the principle
of eight hours labor in the mines. Tbe
selection of a leader was the next step
to complete organization and that will
be taken at an early date.   The meeting

occupied two days, and may be described
wholly successful as a convention.
There were about fifty chiefs at the
Firemen's convention, one representative coming as far as 1,500 miles. The
proceedings were of not particular interest to the public, but were of practical effect all the same, and wound up
with a banquet. Victoria's chief carried
off' the presidency.
It was not at all surprising to find
that it was raining in Vancouver. It
usually/ is at.tbis time of the year; but
it does not prevent the city going ahead.
Its growth is remarkable. The population is now about 30,000, and the weekly bank clearings are over $1,000,000.
