THE SHORT ROUTE
From Greenwood to Canyon
-   City.
SOME NEW CAMPS BY THE WAY
A   Short Description of a Trip   to
Canyon City���New Fields
Prospected,
The shortest and best route lor prospectors from (Ireenwood going up the
Main Kettle river is via the wagon road
eight inilea up Boundary creek, thence
vin the new trail a distance of twenty
miles where the Kettle river is reached.
Might miles up the trail from Boundary
creek is situated Kinkora camp, in
which Home work is being done this season, and good showings of copper and
gold hearing rock have heen opened up.
About two miles farther north and
demons camp ia readied. On several
properties work is being pushed rapidly
and systematically by the original locators. The ore is principally gold-
bearing, though native copper is found
in one of the workings.
Ten miles from demons camp the
river conies in view, on the oast side of
which considerable work has been done
on Wild Horse creek by O'Reilly and
Roberts with good results.
Crossing the river by ford at Sullivan's ranch and continuing northward
lor two miles, Cedar oreok is reached.
On this creek Chinamen have worked
since 1887 with varying success. Here
not only hns the bed of the creek been
worked, but tho surrounding mountain
hides have been partially prospected. A
party of Swedes have made an important
strike of galena, which tbey claim is unequalled in any part of the province except the Slocan. Here also Joe and John
Christian have done work upon some
copper properties with excellent results.
Prom Sullivan's ranch north a first-
class wagon road has been constructed
eight miles to Canyon City by W. S.
Fletcher, who is now extending the
road to the Belcher group of claims. All
along this road pre-emptions are being
taken up, clearod and good cabins
erected.
At Canyon City Mr. Fletcher has
built a stopping place, with good accommodations for travelers, and has
cleared out some of the principal streets
in the townsite. He has also got his
sawmill in placo and is ready to supply
the Canyon City investor with lumber
at a reasonable figure.
On Canyon Creek aro situated the
properties owned by Mr. Fletcher's
company. These aro not counted by
twos or threes but by the score. A largo
sum of money has been expended upon
their development and itisnow reported
that a largo amount of mining machinery will be installed thereon in tbe
near future. The company have nearly
every character of ore on their different
claims, some free-milling, some milling
and concentrating, while others can only
be economically treated at the smelter.
Up Canyon creek runs a good trail to
the 0 K and King Solomon groups in
Tripple Lake camp, which lies between
the Main river and the West Fork. It
ia claimed that a deal for a largo figure
lias been made upon one of the properties iu this camp, which, i( true, will aid
materially in bringing that aection into
mining prominence. Continuing north
from the Belcher group pre-emptions
have boon slaked aa far as Copper creek,
about twenty-two miles from Canyon
City, The Christian brothers have
taken up two between Slate and Copper
creeks, and are building cabins and
clearing ground preparatory to putting
in a crop next yoar.
Two miles up Copper creek is located
Feeney's camp, the principal properties in which are the Lottie F. group,
Messina and LuTour. Over $2,000 has
been expended in development on the
the first named, and some very fine bor-
nite and chalcopyrite was encountered.
Tho owners are at present driving a tunnel to crosscut the lead which from surface indications is over 300 feet in width.
Considerable work has also been done
on the Messina by Stooke and Tenne-
sen, and on the LaTour a good showing
has been uncovered, while Kerby and
Oliillette bave opened up a fine ledge of
gold-bearing quartz on their property.
During the season some prospectors
have [continued north twelve miles to
Brewer creek, which they have ascended,
crossed the divide and followed down
China creek to the West Fork a few
miles north of Beaverton. Near the
summit of the divide they found good
surface ghowings of copper oro and are
convinced that some day there will be
flourishing mining camps in that locality. Other prospectors have gone up
the East F'ork. but report tbe country
as solid granite in that direction. But
up to tbe present time the main Kettle
river country north of Canyon creek has
never been legitimately prospected; in
fact tbe surface has been scratched over
only in parts easy of access.
It will take much hard work and considerable time to determine the values
of the precious metals now securely held
in the'grasp of tbe rugged mountains,
but tbe Western prospector always surmounts such difficulties, and sooner or
later the bidden treasure in this section
will be laid bare to the money markets
of the world, and if present surface indications aro any criterion the district
will occupy a prominent position among
the mining regions ol British Columbia,
W. S. K.
AN APPROPRIATION
For the West Fork Promised Ex-Mayor
Wood.
Ex-Mayor Robert Wood returned
from Victoria on Monday, where he had
gone to try and get an appropriation
from the government for a wagon road
from Westbridge to Beaverton. After
spending nearly a mouth at tbe capital
Mr. Wood finally received a promise of
1.8,000 for the proposed road. Work
will be commenced on the road in the
course of a couple of weeks.
PETCH-HAMBLY,
On Thursday morning, August 9, at
tbe residence of F. H. McKenzie, Copper street, Miss Lilian R. Hambly and
Mr. Benjamin F. Petch were married
by Rev. B. H. Balderston. Miss A.
McKenzie acted as bridesmaid and the
groom wassupported by Mr. Geo. A. McKenzie of Phoenfx. The bride looked
charming in a gown of white grenadine
with a net fichu, valencie rulllea and a
white Hiitin girdle, The bride and
bridesmaid each carried a shower
bouquet o( carnations tied with satin
streamers.
At 10 o'clock the party, which was
composed of old-time friends of the
bride and groom, sat down to an excellent breakfast, prepared by Mrs, McKenzie, sister of the brfde,
Mr, Race, in a few well-chosen words,
proposed a toast to the bride and groom,
and Mr. Geo. McKenzie proposed a
toast to tbe host and hostess. The bride
received many beautiful and valuable
presents.
Tho happy couple took the train for
Spokane. They will meet with a hearty
reception when they return **��- make
their home in Greenwoad.

A combination company composed of
local talent and part of the Stutta company, played Kast Lynne at the Auditorium Monday and Tuesday evenings.
The play wns fairly well put on. With
the acting of Miss Millis, Miss Bancroft, F. J. Miller and W. A.^Trousdale
no fault could bo found. J. G. Stuttz,
as Sir Francis Lewiston, was decidedly
original in bis conception of tho part.
Ilia donkey kick each time he left the
stage might be considered a masterpiece
in the kicking line. However, everyone enjoyed the acting of Mr. Stuttz,
ns all through it was considerable of a
gamble, and one never could tell just
when he was going to throw in one of
bis inexpressibly pathetic kicks.

Mr. M. J. Phelan returned from tbe
West Fork Saturday, where be had been
for the past three weeks looking over
the country. During his stay he visited
a number of the mining properties in
that district on which development work
is now being done. He is highly pleased
with the outlook and expects to locate
there this fall. Among the propertie
visited by Mr. Phelan were tlie Carmi,
Butcher Boy, Hard Cash, Mountain
Bell, Susie,.Maple Leaf, Sallie, Highland
Chief, Hard Cash, Washington, Idaho
and Bell.
On the Carmi the shaft is down 118
feet, on a ledge 10 feet in width, the
lowest assay received from the ore hotly
being $47 in all values. In sinking the
shaft a pay chute was run through
about 15 feet in extent which averaged
over |700 to the ton. A drift is being
run at the 100-foot level to connect with
a 50-foot shaft sunk some time ago. A
tunnel 100 feet in length has also been
run on the ore body. Ore bins are being
built and regular shipments will be
made as soon as the wagon road is coni-
pleten to Beaverton. Tke Carmi lead
has been traced for 800 feet on the
Butcher Boy. Work will be commenced
on this property in the course of a
Weeks by Messrs. Kerr and Dale, the
owners,
The Highland Chief has nine leet of
oro in place at a depth of 22 feet. On
the surface the formation waa badly
broken up, Assays run from 1.30 to upwards of $1,000 per ton.
The Hard Cash, owned by CollinB,
Kintz and Miller, has a ledge about
three feet in width of concentrating ore
running over $40 to the ton. The lead
has been traced for 700 feet.
On the Mountain Bell, owned by
Wood, Currie and Robertson, about $500
has been expended in shaft work and
open cuts. There are three parallel
leads on the claim, one being !>,'_. feet
and the others 2 feet each. The ore is
galena carrying gold and silver values.
On the Maple Leaf there are two parallel leads, about 2>_l feet in width. Very
little work has been done on the property.
On the Bell there is a 100-foot tunnel
and two prospect shafts of about 15
feet. There are three leads on the
claim running parallel to sach othei.
One of the leads is opened up by surface crosscuts for about 700 feet, and
another for about 500 feet. On the
third lead no work has been done. A
new discovery was made on tbe Bell the
past week but no work has yet been
done on it. The surface showing is
about 12 feet in width.
The Washington has been developed
by a 100-foot shaft and a crosscut from
that level, but owing to water coming in
too freely for tbe present facilities to
cope with, work had to be abandoned in
the shaft. Average assays run $40 in
all values. The Idaho, an Adjoining
claim, together with the Washington,
is under bond to "Barbarian" Brown.
A 50-foot shaft lias been sunk on the
Idaho, and a crosscut run from thai
level, cutting through a fine liody of ore.
The Bullion, lying northwest of
Beaverton, located last spring, on which
the owners have been working for the
past three months, is said to be one of
the best prospects in the district, but
Mr. Phelan was unable to visit the property.
The Sallie, owned by Robert Wood, is
being developed by a tunnel, which is in
150 feet. Work on this property was
discontinued last week, but will be resumed as soon as machinery can be
got in.
Considerable work iB being done on
Bull, Cranberry and Boomerang creeks.
LEGISLATIVE NOTES.
In the private bills committee on August 0 the Western Telegraph ��� Telephone company's bill was considered.
It was moved by Mr. Smith Curtis to
limit tbe borrowing power of the com
pany to the fair cost price of the company's corporal property. The vote for
was Brown and Curtis, agains, Clifford,
A. W., Smith and Tallow���lost.
Mr. Curtis also moved to add a clause
whereby the government, after the expiration ol live years, upon giving one
year's previous notice, has the ri^ht to
purchase all the property and franchise
of the company at the fair value of its
Corporal property and leases, together
with such boons (if any) as it may deem
advisable, not exceeding 10 per cent of
such fair value.   This provision carried.
Mr. Curtis also moved that the following clause be inserted : " No person
shall bo employed by the company in
the construction, erection and operation
of the telegraph or telephone lines and
plant of the company who cannot read
this act iu a European language, or unless he is on the last revised provincial
voters' list, or is of Caucasian or Indian
blood."
A vote was taken, Brown and Curtis
voting for it, and Messrs. A. W, Smith
and Tatlow against it. Chairman
Helmcken gave his vote against the motion and it waB declared lost.
In the railway committee a similar
provision was moved by Mr. Mclnnes to
be inserted in the railway charter before the committee and a vote was taken,
Messrs. Brown, Curtis, Kidd, Martin,
Mclnnes, Oliver, Stables and E. C.
Smith���8 for it; and Messrs. Clifford,
Fulton, Garden, Mcl'hillips, Mounce,
Murphy and Rogers���7 against it.
Chairman Pcoley, who had previously announced that the policy of
the government was in opposition to
such a provision, then claimed his privilege under rule 87 of voting and voted
against the motion, making the vote a
tie, and by rule 87 tho motion was declared lost,
As tho motion is aimed at the Chinese
and Japanese, it is now quite clear in
view of Mr, Pooley's specific announcement of the policy of the government
that the latter is going to object to restrictions upon their employment.
Ralph Smith introduced the following resolution in tbe legislature : "That
considering the unsatisfactory nature of
the present act, intituled 'An act to provide for the formation from time to time,
as disputes may arise, of Councils of
Labor Conciliation and Arbitration,'
chapter 109, Revised Statutes, 1897, to
accomplish such purposes as expressed
in title, and in consideration of the
labor disputes occurring repeatedly,
which ought to be immediately settled
for the public good, and inasmuch as
such an act would involve the expenditure of public moneys and cannot therefore be presented to the house by any
private member, that this house urges
tin necessity of such provision as above
as soon as practicable."
In speaking to tbe resolution, the
mover urge'd strongly its importance
and necessity at the present time in this
province. There could be no question
at tbe present juncture about wasting
time over its division, neither was there
any need to make it a political issue;
with two such strikes before the eyes of
the public as had been lately experienced here, it was high time that some
method should be devised so that influence would be brought tobeartOBolve
such difficulties as had arisen without
having to utilize the last recourse,
namely, that of arms, That the Dominion government was fully convinced
of this need was shown by their recent
enactment and by the appointment of
commissioners to mediate in these
questions, What was now wanted was
that the province should take some such
steps too. There was at present an act
on the statute books concerning conciliation and arbitration, but that measure
was practically of none effect, as its
measures could only be brought into
operation by the applicatian of both parties to the dispute. In bail cases it was
quite UBeleBi, and that just when most
required. He bad confined his resolution to one of general statement and did
so in l^gheBt interests of the case, it
did not force or embarass the government, who were thus in all the better
position to make a definite statement
that at the next session of the house
tbey could take some action. Such a
statement was all that he required at
the present time.
Several suggestions might, however,
be made. One of these was that a labor
bureau be established by which much
useful data and statistics might be collected. Another was some provision for
the incorporation of trade unions. This
was possible now under the Dominion
laws, but a provincial status was necessary. This would enable the employers
of labor to deal with a corporate body.
A LARGE ORE BODY
And
Good   Values   on
Greyhound.
the
ANOTHER OF THE BIG GR0UP8
Showing   up   Well  Under Development-Six Claims That Will
Be Shippers.
One of the most promising properties
now being worked in Deadwood camp is
the Greyhound. This property forms
one of a group of six claims through
which runs the same ledge, or ore
bodies similar in character and values.
The group comprises the Ah There,
Greyhound, Butte fraction. Butte, Great
Hopes and Marguerite. Near these are
the Sunset, Crown Silver and Mother
Lode. The Ah There and Greyhound
are located on the McRae pre-emption,
a portion of which has been platted as
the town of Deadwood, which is now a
thriving town. The Ah There is the
most southerly of the group. On it a
shaft has been sunk nearly one hundred feet, and about fifty feet of cross-
cutting. About one thousand feet north
of the Ah There shaft is that of the
Greyhound. Between these points
four open crosscuts have been run in
ore averaging about sixty feet in width.
The shaft on the Greyhound is.down 107
feet, all in ore. At the 50-foot level a
a drift was run east 20 feet in ore carrying values of 14'^ per cent, copper and
$2 in gold. Drifting is now being done
at 105 feet in the same character of ore
as at the 50-foot level. Between tho
abaft and the northerly limits of the
claim five open croascuta have been rUn
in ore ranging from 30 to 50 feet in
length without the width of the ore
body being determined. This gives a
distance of over 2,000 feet in which the
ledge has been located on the surface by
open crosscuts. Surface work on the
Butte fraction and Butte traces the
ledge through theBCclaims in a northerly
direction to the Great Hopes, on which
a shaft has been sunk 75 feet and about
100 feet of crosscutting has been done.
Development work is now being done
nn this property. North of the Great
Hope's is the Marguerite, on which the
final payment was made by Massam it
Laidlaw to J. P. Harlan tbe past week,
tbe money consideration of the bond
being $20,000. On tbe Marguerite about
150 feet of shaft work has been done
and 100 feet of crosscutting. A force of
aix men are now at work developing the
property.
It has been proved by crosscutting
on the surface of the Greyhound that
ledge is fully 00 feet in width, and with
the values obtained so far as development has been done, if tbe ore liody retains its surface width to a depth of
250 feet, the Greyhound will be one of
the most valuable properties in tbe
district. It is the intention of the management to continue present development until the Greenwood smelter is
completed, and then ship and with returns develop on a larger scale, thus
holding the stock for the benefit of promoters of the company. Jno. Morrison
has charge of the work.
ANDREW LAIDLAW HERE.
The General Manager uf the Smelter Company
Arrived Monday.
On Monday night's train Andrew
Laidlaw, of the firm of Massam it Laidlaw, general manager of tbe Standard
Cupper company, arrived iu the city.
Mr. Laidlaw's company recently made
the liual payment on the Marguerite,
on which they held an option for
$20,000. The Standard Copper company intend erecting a smelter on Boundary creek, it ia said on tho Kerr ranch,
about a mile below Boundary Falls.
The smelter will probably employ fifty
men. It is claimed that ore can he
treated much cheaper by tbe pyritic
method which will Ik- used in the new
smelter, than by the older methods.

Tub delegates to the associated boards
ol trade of Kootenay and Yale cannot
be congratulated upon their choice flf a
president. Although J. Uoderick Robertson is doubtless a man of some
���ability, he cannot be looked upon as a
��afe person in the position to which he
has just been elected. It is presumed
that tbe intention in forming this association was that it should be representative of the business interests of the
mining districts of Yale and Kootenay.
In such a body the agitator should have
no place. Put the new president of
tbe associated boards of trade in any of
tbe trades unions and in a week the
same body that elected him would have
detectives searching his residence for
explosives. Mr. Robertson, as president of the mine owners' association,
is credited with being the cause of much
of the bitterness engendered between
mine owner and miner in the past two
years, and his election cannot be taken
in any otlier way than that the delegates
at Nelson intended to throw down the
gauntlet to the working men of the
district. One of the primary objects of
the association should have been to
endeavor to settle any little differences
between mine owner and minor, but
they have taken the opposite course by
electing Mr. Robertson as prosident.
The position givos to a person, who is a
very common variety of the character
known as an agitator, a certain prestige
with legislators and othors outside tbe
district that may mar tbe harmony
now existing between employer and employee in the mining camps of Yale and
Kootenay.
A New York news item states that a
prominent lady of that city kneaJn
dough with her gloves on. There is
nothing remarkable about that. We
need dough with our boots on. and need
it with our pants on ; and if some of the
many indebted to tbis ollice do not call
in soon and settle, wo will need dough
with neither pants nor boots on.���Ex.
A witty judge in Topeka, Kansas, the

THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY MINER.
THIS AND THAT.
A Victoria paper contains an advertisement for two school teacliers, one
male and one female, to go to the Atlin
country. The advertisement concludes:
"Apply in person to the superintendent
of education." Which means, of course,
that no one outside of Victoria need
apply. We do not know what right the
authorities of the education department
have to limit applications for public
positions to a few in Victoria. It would
be well to bear in mind that there are
others in the province.���Nelson Miner.
The feeling is growing that those
three justices of the peace who were responsible for calling out the militia during the fishermen's strike at Steveston
were more interested in advancing the
interests of the canners than they were
in preserving the peace. In answer
to a question in the legislature,
the attorney-general has stated that one
of the three justices is interested in one
of the canneries, while another was employed as foreman in one of the canneries. They were in a measure parties
to the dispute, but they got the troops
out just the same.���Nelson Tribune.
Inspector Cowperthwaite and the
school board have decided, so far as in
their power lies, that "selected passages
of the Word of God shall be read daily
to the pupils without comment." The
recommendation to that end is accompanied by the explanation: " The school
law wisely provides that no religious
creed or dogma shall be taught." The
school law does more than that; it establishes our Bchool system on a purely
secular basis, so that it may arouse no
Sectarian jealousies, Mr, Cowperthwaite
aud tno Yi.npov.yer' hoard n,ow in effect
i,sk t|iB department tP Tem��ve it irom
tha,t basis and perfi^it the introduction
qf religjpus teaching. Jx.8 Vancouver can
hardjy b,e extended pxpoptional treatment ii) this resppct, the request practically ie that tbe whole system be
pliaiiged.. T|)e publip does not need to
be tpid. thut there is iMger in tl'e attempt. Oflpe the wedge 19 entered
there is no telling how far it will be
drivpn, tQ the demoralization of the
sphoala, Better leave the Jaw as it
stands and avoid the danger of sectarian
clashings, as the purpose was when the
law was enacted:���Vancouver Province
There are qnly two, potent factors ip
(JstUadian   polities   today���pocket-book
and  prejudice,   The Canadian electors
are  swayed qnly by considerations of
personal profit or party power.   Men do
not vqte according to the dictates of
their own conscience! neither do they
follow the course which their judgment
indicates as most likely to produce the
best  results  for the country at large.
All great questions are, like the tariff,
treated as local and personal matters
and voted on according to the dollars
and cents judgment pr the pa��'ty prejudice, qf each individual voter.   No other
factors enter seriously into a settlement
of tlie policy oi the Dominion.   Others
may appear to carry weight hut they
are like the old flag���most emotional
when mentioned in conjunction with an
appropriation.   So we And that in order
to convert a voter to any political propaganda it is necessary first to show liim
Tyliere ho, (s pe^qiia_ly 'Interested,   This
is  tne "lesson  tliat British  Columbia
must teaoh Eastern Canada in connection witli the vital question of Oriental
labor.   Until the great majority of the
the people of Canada can be brought to
see the personal loss  which they  will
suffer from an unrestricted immigration
of Asiatics, there  is little probability
that the curse by which th'? PVPvince is
blighted, f '11 he lifted,   Until tbe people of Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime provinces come directly in contact
with   the  cheap   labor   and   cheaper
morality of the slant-eyed heathens of
China and Japan we cannot expect an
intelligent or even an interested vote on
the question.   All the campaign literature ever printed and all the platform
pr.utory over spouted would  not have
half the effect on an Ontario laborer as
would the Iosb of .his job to make room
for  a   pig-tail   wage-cutter   from   tho
Flowery Kingdom.   Something liko this
will have to be done.   In a few years
more Britisli Coltirnbia will be in the
h^nds of the fat and foreign capitalist
Whose  only   interest  in   the   Chinese
question is to secure cheap labor and
largo dividends.   Already one industry
is passing into the hands of Jap labor
and the militia is on hand to see that it
is well done.    By the ultimate loss of
the Fraser river strike three thousand
fishermen,   most  of   them   natives  of
Canada, will find their occupation gone
and  themselves   tramps,   while   three
thousand japs, most of them not three
months in the country, will find themselves  British   subjects,   protected  by
military chumps packing rifles and ordered to shoot and shoot tp  kill  any of
thpir countrymen who protest against
being robbed of their livelihood.���Sandon Paystreak.

Origin of Ore Deposits,
The origin of ore deposits is an interesting and practical subject of discussion, and one that has considerable
of value contributed by men who have
given the vast subject careful study.
The subject is of scientific inquiry and
of immediate practical value to prospectors and metal miners everywhere It
is, of course, easy to say: "We don't
care how the ore originated. The ques-
for us is where is it and how can it be
best reached and most economically
treated." Yet a satisfactory solution
of the more abstract scientific" Inquiry
will aid in answering the concrete practical requirements of the miner. This
last fact gives great importance to the
contributions of geologists and scientists
during the past twenty years, tlie result
being that the matter is emerging from
the shadowy domain of theory anil hypothesis, and iH assuming the nature of
an exact problem which admits uf definite solution.���Mining nnd Scientific
Press.
