General Meeting of the Shareholders
The   Machinery Plant���Further Development Should Give Satisfactory Results.
An extraordinary general meeting of
stockholders in the Brandon & (iolden
Crown Mining company waB held Thursday, 20th inst, at the Hotel Armstrong.
About 1,200,000 of the 1,500,000 shares
in the company were represented either
personally or by proxy. Among those
present at the meeting were Hon. T.
Mayne Daly, president of the company ;
W. L. Orde, secretary; Geo. H. Collins,
W. A. fuller, W. ,1. Porter, and J. A.
Russell, local members of the board of
directors, and G. R. Coldwell and Jno.
Inglis, of Brandon, Man., both large
shareholders in the company and proxies
for numerous other Manitoba shareholders.
The meeting having been convened
for the purpose of formally authorizing
re organization of the company, the
necessary special resolutions were submitted and passed unanimously authorizing voluntary liquidation of the company and reconstruction of the same.
It was decided that the new company
shall be designated the Golden Crown
MineB, limited, and that the nominal
capital shall be similar to that of the
existing company, viz., $1,500,000 in 1,-
500,000 shares of $1 each. The Bhares
in the new company, however, are to be
issued as paid up to 95 cents each, leaving an assessable margin of five cents
per share, providing an available capital
of $75,000, which will it is considered,
be ample to pay off all existing liabilities, meet tlie cost of liquidation and
leave a balance amply sufficient to
thoroughly prove the value or otherwise
of the mine, which is already equipped
with all the plant and machinery likely
to be needed in carrying out this object.
Mr. W. A..Puller was appointed liquidator and it was decided to hold at Rossland on July 0 the general meeting
necessary for the confirmation of the
resolutions passed as stated above. The
registered office of the new company
will be in Greenwood. It is anticipated
that all preliminaries will have been
arranged in time to admit of the mine
being un watered in August and development work being resumed immediately
The foregoing was crowded out of last
week's issue of the Miner. Having
more space available this week the following information relative to the property may be of interest at this time.
The company owns the Golden Crown,a
full sized mineral claim, situate in Wellington camp, near Greenwood. This
claim immediately adjoins the Winnipeg, now being systematically prospected and giving promise of eventually
proving a productive and profit-yielding
mine. The Golden Crown was acquired
by the Brandqn & Golden Crown company early in 1HII7, in March of which
year its development was commenced,
The earlier work done was chiefly the
sinking of a prospect shaft 51) feet and
the running of a prospect, tunnel 822feet.
In 1898 a power plant was installed and
the present main working shaft was
commenced Between that time and
the suspension of operations last year
year 2,1108 lineal feet of work were done
in underground development of this
mine, us follows: At the 30-foot level,
1(11 feet of drifts and crosscuts ; at the
100-foot level, 889 feet of drifts, crosscuts, raises and stopes; at the 150-foot
level, 257 feet of drifts, raises, winzes
aud stopes; at the 300-foot level, 079
feet of crosscutting, north (ISO feet and
south 293 feet. Add the depth of the
main shaft, 322 feet, and the total given
is arrived at. From these workings -',-
240 tons of ore were extracted and
shipped to the smelters, of which 2,030
tons went to the Trail smelter and the
remaining 210 tons to the Granby smelter at (Irand Forks. The plant and machinery now on the mine consists of a
(ID-horse power horizontal return tubular
boiler, a 40-horse power locomotive
boiler, a 30-horse power hoisting engine, a 12x18 Rand straight line air compressor, a 3fix8 air receiver, four machine drills, a 10x7x5x10 Snowies sink
ing pump, 4x0x4 Snow duplex pump,
platform cage, and requisite accessories.
It may be added that at the time the
ore was shipped freight and treatment
rates were high as compared with the
competitive rates now obtainable, so that
the shipment of ore under conditions
much more advantageous to the mine is
now practicable. Then with the excellent results at the Winnipeg that
have bean achieved since that mine was
placed in the charge of an experienced
and thoroughly competent mine manager, as an object lesson, there does not
appear to be any sufficient reason to
doubt that the Golden Crown can, if
given a similar favorable cbance, be
placed upon a satisfactory and permanent working basis. Of course the important fact has to be kept in mind that
the Winnipeg has yet to demonstrate
that it not only has its ore in quantity,
which it is stated to have, but that its
average values will run high enough to
leave a margin of profit above the cost
of freight and treatment. This proved,
the future of the mine will be asssured,
and since the workings of the Golden
Crown are on the same veins as those of
the Winnipeg, and are in close proximity
to themj there is, in view of the growing
confidence that operations on the Winnipeg are establishing, much to encourage the Golden Crown shareholders
to take heart and give their mine a more
thorough examination along lines to be
laid down by a skilled adviser. The
completion of re-organization arrangements and the early resumption of active development work in this mine will
mill at an early date."
It would appear that as regards the
Ethiopia either the Minei misunderstood Mr. Wallis or that gentleman's
reference to the Ethiopia are not quite
in accord with the report of Mr. R.
Roberts on the property, which was
printed and circulated in England last
March, when the Wallis-Haultain
syndicate was inviting applications for
the balance of its unissued shares. Mr.
Roberts stated the development work
done to have been "An adit tunnel, 255
feet long, tapping No. 2 vein at a depth
of 150 feet and No. 1 vein at 40 feet; and
50 feet of drifting on No. 2 vein." Is
the Ethiopia so wet then that the tunnel, which if properly driven will have a
drainage fall outwards, will not allow of
the water running away as faBt as it
comes in from above? Further, does the
property belong to Mr. Wallis or the
syndicate? If the former it might be
well to have it clearly understood, so
that people in England may know
whether or not the syndicate has failed
to obtain the "absolute possession" of
the claim which last March it announced
to be most, desirable. It is pleasing to
have assurance that work has been resumed on the Ethiopia, but it will be
well to have the published statements
regarding the property as nearly consistent as possible.
Fred. H. Oliver, managing director of
the Morrison Mines, limited, came in
from Spokane last Monday night and
next day went up to the  mine.    Upon
there  will  be no further litigation  in
this connection.
In his last circular letter the managing director of the Winnipeg Mines,
limited, says: "Crosscutting south continues on the 300-foot level of the Winnipeg and both north and south on the
400-foot level. When these crosscuts
were started a fortnight ago it was nol
then intended to crosscut north for the
No. 3 north vein until the south crosscuts were completed, but it was found
more convenient to run north and south
alternately, so that while the machine
drill is working in one crosscut the
muckers have the other to themselves
undisturbed. Splendid progress has
been made during the past; fortnight,
over 100 feet of work having been done."
The R. Bell, in Summit camp, made
its first hulk shipment of ore this week.
Two cars were sent to the (iranby smelter earlv in the week and two more were
being loaded later. The ore is describe.!
as about the nicest looking ore yet sent
out of that camp. It was obtained iu
the workings between the lowest level
and the bottom of the old prospect shaft,
with its connecting drifts and crosscuts.
Some good ore is being met with in the
bottom level, but not yet in a continuous
Prospecting with the diamon d drill is
now in progress at the R. Bell mine.
Manager Hanly was last week showing
visitors to the mine specimens of nice
looking ore met with in the drift at  the

Boundary, many of whom are shareholders, but will as well restore confidence in the mining industry of the
district among many outside investors
who up to the present time have experienced little hut disappointment.
Last Wednesday the Rossland Miner
published the following relating to the
Ethiopia and Jewel properties, ill Long
Lake camp:
"('. S. Wallis has returned from a trip
to the Long Lake section of the Boundary, where he has started work on his
property, the Ethiopia. A crew of men
is now at work stripping the ledge, and
these will be employed all summer.
Later underground work will be commenced, but the amount of surface
water to be contended with at the present time makes it advisable to confine
the immediate work in hand to the
"Mr. Wallis visited the Jewel mine,
where a force of some 35 men is at work.
Development is being carried on extensively underground, one of tbe features
under way being a new two-compartment shal'l about 1150 feet to the north of
the old shaft, which is down a distance
of 330 feet. The new shaft has already
reached a depth of 110 feet and good progress is being made. The mine has
20,000 tons of ore blocked out, and the
work under way will substantially increase this reserve. It is understood
that the company  proposes to erect a
his return it was ascertained that there
! are now 18 men on the payroll and that
j the work now in hand is the extension
j of the drift at the 300-foot level. The 80-
horse power boiler ordered last month
1 has not yet been received at tho mine
but it should arrive shortly
Accompanying the report on the mine
j of Rov  II.   Clarke,   part   of   whicli   was
1 published ill last  week's  Miner,   was  a
letter, in the course of which Mr. Clarke
said :    "My advice would be to inslal an
1 engine anil cage capable of  hoisting  3IKI
tons per day from 11 depth of 300 feel.  A
compressor plant of the compound steam
j condencing and compound air type, and
j two 80-horse power boilers  adequate   to
furnish steam for  such  engines."    The
directors are however not prepared to at
once add much more plant to  that  now
in use at, the mine, other than the boiler
already ordered.    Nor will   the  railway
spur, which has been the subject of protest on  the  part of  some  local  shareholders, but whose objections have been
set aside by the supreme court,  be constructed just yet.   The further development of the mine is  the   present  policy
and later, after arrangements advantageous to the  company shall  have been
made for the disposal of the output of
the mine, the Bpur will be put in.
It is anticipated that the  two assess-
; nienta of one cent each, to which oppos-
i ition was also offered locally, ir. view  of
1 the decision of the supreme court  being
favorable   to  the  company's action  in
levying them, will now be paid and that
I lowest lovel of the mine. A commencement has been made to ship to the
(iranby   smelter   ore    from   the   shoot
j tapped by the tunnel run into the hill
at a level below the old workings and
higher  up  than   the   mouth of the new
| shaft.
Both raises in the Montreal A: Boston
('upper company's Sunset mine, mentioned in last week's Miner, are reported
as being ill ore of good grade. The 200-
i foot level has lately been extended sonlh
some (15 feet and now n crosscut is being
run west from this extention with the
object of cutting at this lowor level the
shoot of ore encountered above.
The Franklin camp placer excitement
has died out, the statements made  that
induced   the   stampede  up   the   North
Fork having been   greatly  exaggerated.
I Colors have been found in the gravel on
| one or two creeks, but it is very doubtful whether all the numerous victims of
the fake together obtained enough   gold
j pay even one man's expenses up  there.
The boiler has been installed on the
Lake claim, in Skylark camp, the stack
erected and the boiler house covered in.
There is still a lot of  construction  work
] to be done before sinking can be resumed, so that it will be another month
; ere the deepening of the shaft can conveniently be again proceeded with.
During   the   week   there   have   been
some negotiations in progress  with  the
'object of arranging a  working  bond on
the Big Copper mineral claim, situate in
Copper camp, and owned by J. Moran
and (i. B. McAulav, but so far as known
nothing has vet been agreed upon.

On the (Ith inst. A. M. Whiteside sent
iu his resignation to the government as
one of the police commissioners for the
city of (ireenwood, and this week received notice of its acceptance. It is
understood that M. II. Kane has been
appointed to the vacancy
A concert and dance were held in the
Miners' I'nion hall, Pnoenix, on Wednesday night. There was a numerous
attendance, fully 100 couples being at
the dance and a most enjoyable time
was spent. The proceeds were in aid of
the work of the church of England in
that town and about $110 were cleared.
Last night's train brought in Capt.
R. G. Tatlow, M.P.I', for Vancouver,
and Mr. Smith Curtis, M P.P. for the
Rossland riding of West Kootenay. The
former, with Mrs. Tatlow is registered
at the Armstrong, and the latter at the
Imperial. Capt. Tatlow visited Rock
creek and Eholt's ranch (now Midway)
a dozen years ago, but. has not since
been in the district until now.
The Archdeacon of Kootenay arrived
from Nelson on Wednesday night, having first visited Grand Fork en route.
He is on his periodical archidiaconal
visit of inspection of the different parishes and missions of the diocese, He
will remain in Greenwood over Sunday,
taking part in all that day's services at
St. Jude's church of England. On Monday he will leave for Cranbrook and

The executive committee of the
Diocese of Kootenay have constituted a
new mission with Phoenix as its centre,
and made a grant towards the stipend
of a resilient clergyman. An organization meeting was held at I'hoensx
yesterday morning, St. John's was the
name chosen for the mission and the
following officers and committee were
elected: Warden, 1'. W. W. King;
secretary, M. S. Aldham; treasurer, Mr.
Slack, of the Eastern Townships bank;
Dr. Boucher and Mr. Cox. Mr. Curtis,
diocesan architect, will make plans for
a suitable church building and efforts
will be made to erect it later in the year
on lots generously donated for the purpose. The bishop is endeavoring to
secure a suitable clergyman for Phoenix.
Meanwhile R. W. A. Robins will con-
linue to give it attention,
.1. S. Clute, inspector of customs, and
('. (I. Major, official administrator at
New Westminister, came in from the
west yesterday and are registered at the
11..1..I Arniostrong They have had a
very pleasant trip down the Okanagan
uml thence lo Keremeos and Olalla,
coming hence via Fairview, Osoyoos,
Camp McKinney and Midway. Mr.
Major rode iu from Hope to Rock creek
35 years ago and has not until now
again visited the Boundary country.
His visit on that occasion was made in
the company of a Mr. Landvoigt, an
educated and Cultured Hanoverian who
with his wife, an Alsatian lady, after
filling a position of foreign correspondent in an important establishment, in
Huston, Texas, drifted with the gold
seekers of those early days to tbe
Fiaser river, on which, at Hope, he had
a general store. His business partner
was "Okanagan1' Smith, well known
along the Boundary for many years.
Upon tie return of Messrs. Major and
Landvoigt to Hope they took with them
a quantity of gold dust, about a tea
spoonful of which Mr. Clute still keeps
as a souvenir of old times. Messrs.
Clute and Major went out on this morning's train to (irand Forks, whence they
will proceed to Rossland. THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY MINER.
June 2.S, 1901.
A fortnight ago Dr. A. B. Ledoux, a
metallurgist of high standidtr and a
member of the New York firm of Ledoux
& Co.. arrived in (ireenwood. Next day
he went up to Phoenix, intending to re-
turn here, but before he could do so ho
received telegraphic advice that his wife
had been seriously injured in a carriage
accident so that he had to return direct
to New York in haste, and consequently
no opportunity occurred to obtain from
him here his impressions of the mining
and smelting industries of the district.
The Spokesman-Reeiew has published
an^account of an interview with him
from which the following is taken:
Dr. Ledoux said: "Nearly all the
mineral product of British Columbia,
especially the copper product, is handled
by the firm of which I am a member at
New York city, and the copper matte
from the Trail, (Iranby, Greenwood
smelters, and up to recently the product of the Le Roi smelter at Northport,
has been sampled by our lirm. We
issue certificates of assay value and on
these certificates sales are made.
"A great deal of this copper has been
going to Europe, and their buyers pay
for it at New York when we give a certificate of value.
"The object of my visit was to look
over the copper camps and smelters in
order to be able to tell the people who
are buying thiH material in Europe and
the east, what are their prospects of
continuing to get this supply
"In Europe especially, where this copper matte is bought, it is a custom of
the buyer to sell copper against their
purchases, so that when they make a
contract for a year's supply of copper
and sell the equivalent amount ahead
they want to be sure they are going to
get it.
"As far as the smelters that I have
visited are concerned, at Trail, (Irani!
forks and (ireenwood they are probably
doing the cheapest work of any smelters
north of Arizona. Most of the ore in
the Boundary district is self-Huxing, so
that no barren iron or lime is necessary.
They are smelting from 350 to 400 tons
per day through single furnaces which
under ordinary conditions would only
handle 250 tons. This is entirely due to
fortunate character of the ore.
"The next most important question is
tbe supply of ore for these smelters.
With a view of satisfying myself on this
point, I examined some of the most important mines in each camp, such as the
Le Roi at Rossland, and the (iranby
company mines at Phoenix.
"As far as the Le Roi is concerned, I
not only saw large ore reserves as far as
I could see on a Hying visit, but was
especially pleased with the character of
the work under ground and the economy
and ingenuity displayed in the constructive and operation of overhead work.
"The mines in Phoenix show even
larger bodies of low grade ore than I had
expected. In the Ironsides and Knob
Hill one finds it possible to measure up
ore in sight by the million tons.
"Were it not for the intelligent and
liberal co-operation on the part of the
railroads, even tbe very cheap smelting
and large ore bodies would not be suf-
ficent to bear the expense of treatment.
But. with the co-operation of the railroads the future of the Boundary country seems to be on a solid basis.
"The copper produced from the British Columbia ores finds a readier market in Europe than the product of some
other countries, because the ores are
free from arsenic and other impurities
which seriously affect the quality of the |
"When   I  was at Phoenix  they had
just, broke  through   between  the Iron- j
sides   and   Knob   Hill   tunnels,  giving;
some 2,000 feet of ore of varied grades.
"While at the Hall Mines  smelter at
Nelson I was glad U> notice the prepare- .
tions for the resuming of  copper  smelting.   The Silver King, whicli they own,
shows  a sufficient reserve of high grade |
copper ore to justify shipments, with in- '
dications of permanency,
"The Trail smelter is running full in
all departments, and is turning out both
lead and copper at a remarkably low 1
cost, considering the complex character
of the ore it handles and the necessity
of using Muxes on Rossland ores.
"The copper product of tlie Boundary
and Rossland districts alone amounts to
more than 2,000,000 pounds of the metal
per month, all being shipped at present
in the form of matte, carrying 50 per
cent of copper. By November the (iranby smelter will be producing the metal
itself, as additional furnaces and converters are being added. By that time
they will be smelting over 1,000 tons
Westward is your OPPORTUNITY!
The Town of Rendell, on the West Fork of Kettle
River is now on the market.
For the man of small capital it affords uuequalled
opportunity for sure investment.
With title perfect, prices low, terms liberal and excellent outlook, the sales are bound to be large.
the hills surrounding this new town are excellent mining
prospects. Several of them have already demonstrated
that they are mines.
The richness of the ore justifies hauling it at
present to Midway, by teams, over rough roads.
Good roads and railways mean fortunes. ��� With
the immediate prospect,of a railroad, for speculators in
real estate or mining properties, no place in the west
affords you an equal chance with

we fully understood from the hospital
committee dealing with the matter, that
it was payable as soon as the grant was
legally made. A different arrangement,
would materially affect our prospects.

from, and may then insert, any changes
that may seem ncessary, I am gentlemen, respectfully yours,

N. McLeod, from the fire department,
asked that $75 be granted the fire brigade for incidental expenses.
Alderman Canllield said that at the
beginning of the year he had suggested
that the fire brigade be a volunteer one
and that a certain sum be appropriated
for expenses of the department, but his
suggestions had not been concurred in
by either the council or members of the
brigade and a paid chief and driver had
been appointed.
Max Berger pointed out that neither
chief or driver was aw expense that
could be charged to the fire department,
as the chief of the brigade was a police
officer and census enumerator, and the
driver had charge of street work. It
was moved by Alderman Ross, seconded
by Alderman Caulfield, that $170 be
granted to the fire department for incidental expenses, this amount to be the
total appropriation for the year.  Carried.
R. Donagin made a proposition to sell

The Lord Bishop of the Diocese of
Kootenay paid (ireenwood another visit,
coming in from Nelson, where he had
been presiding over the Church of England second annual synod, last Satur
day night. Notice of his intended coming had not been so widely made known
as it might have been, but as it happened the weather was so very stormy
that a large attendance at St. .lude's
church service was quite out of the question. The storm set in about a quarter
to eleven o'clock on Sunday morning,
so that many who were ready, and indeed some on their way, to attend, were
prevented. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, though, the
attendance was fair. The evening service drew a large congregation, but the
Masons had previously arranged for a
church parade at the Presbyterian
church, so that some of thoBe who
would otherwise have gone to hear the
bishop were prevented by this previous
engagement. The services, both morning and evening, was taken by Rev. Mr.
Robins, the bishop preaching both sermons, delivering earnest and thoughtful discourses that were attentively followed throughout. The musical part of
the service was very hearty, the lady
members of the choir nearly all braving
the elements and thereby setting a good
example to those of the men who needed
it. The bishop left on Monday's train
for Grand Forks. During his short stay
in Greenwood he was enabled to iu some
measure, despite the unfavorable conditions that temporarily prevailed, to
obtain a general idea of the good and extending work for the church Rev. Mr.
Robins, the priest in charge, has done
and is still doing in and around (ireenwood. The bishop was the guest of Mr
and Mrs. Robert Wood.

The resources of Great Britain's colonies are her future strength. In Ihe resources of Canada alone, says a writer in
Cassier's Magazine, the British Empire
possesses a guarantee of a continuance
of commercial greatness. In all discussions on the present, industrial crisis the
importance of the colonies, as a basis of
supplies, and as future fields of vast industries has hardly been touched upon.
One reason why the Canadians have
been so enthusiastic in favor of imperial
federation is because they realize that
the hope of the British Empire lies in
the development of the colonies. It is
to be regretted that, the people of Great
Britain and her public men have failed
to awaken to the fact that a country as
large, and in many respects as full of resources as the United States, is theirs to
develop. If the Briton is densely ignorant respecting the resources of Canada,
and other of the colonies, the American
is not; he is casting covetous eyes upon
the north of him, and already some of
the most, important industrial enterprises in the development of the natural wealth of Canada, are due to Yankee "push" and alertness. It is humiliating to Canadians that their country is
being exploited by American capitalists,
while British money lies idle at home or
is being sent to the United States to
build up the power of the commercial
enemy. There is plenty of room in
Canada for all efforts that can be put
into operation by British capital during
the present century, and the resources
are simply illimitable. If the worst
should come, and Great Britain should
be destined to lose half her population,
those forced to emigrate need not go
outside the Empire, for Canada's greatest needs are Britisli capital and Britisli
people. At present the Dominion gov-
veriinient lin 1 the greatest difficulty in
inducing Britons to emigrate to Canada,
due partly to the widespread illusion
that the western colony is a land of snow
and ice. When Great Britain begins to
send gold and settlers, manufacturers
and workmen to Canada, she will lind a
way out of her present commercial crisis
and the truth will strike her that it is
possible lo build a new industrial Britain
in the west, which will keep pace with
American expansion of trade, and will
establish more firmly than ever before
the industrial power of the empire.

The difficulty of appreciating the difference in time that prevails between
different countries is very general, and
the following list is printed for the purpose of a ready reference guide by which
to calculate the time of any occurrence
in another country. All nations, except
Spain, Portugal and Russia, calculate
their time from the meridan of Greenwich, accepting as standard some even
hour of meridan, east or west of Greenwich.    For instance:
Western European time, or that of
the meridan of Greenwich, is legal in
England, Belgium, Holland and Luxemburg.
Central European time, or one hour
east of Greenwich, is legal in Germany,
Austria-Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Congo Free State,Denmark,
Italy, Servia, Sweden, Norway and
Eastern European time, or two hours
east of Greenwich, is adopted by Bulgaria, Roumania, Natal and Turkey in
Eight hours east of Greenwich applies to the Philippines.
Nine hours east of Greenwich is adopted by Central Australia and Japan.
Ten hours east of Greenwich is official
in Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania.
Eleven and a half bouts east has been
adopted by New Zealand.
The United States,Canadaand Mexico
have adopted the fifth, sixth, seventh
and eight hours west of Greenwich.
The Hawaiian Islands adopted the
meridan of ten and a half hours west.
In Spain the meridian of Madrid, fourteen minutes forty-five seconds west of
Greenwich, is legal; in Portugal, that of
Libson, or thirty-six minutes, thirty-
nine seconds west, and in Russia that of
St. Petersburg, or two hours, one mnute
and thirty seconds east of Greenwich.
Vancouver is to have the smelter and
refinery. The Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting and Power company
has definitely decided to build a smelter
at Vancouver, with the intention of adding a refinery to its plant in a short
The fact that the smelter is to be
established will give an impetus to mining all along the coast and moreover it
will give a new industry and another
pay roll. We understand that the company has made, or is making, arrangements to secure ore from South America
for treatment; it will be in the market
for ore from all the camps along the
coast; from Kamloops, Revelstoke and
other places along the C. P. R. line.
The establishment of a smelter in Vancouver will benefit many districts.
Lynn creek accross Burrard Inlet will
attract more prospectors ;Texada Island
will be more thoroughly developed, and
hasten development work in Howe
Sound. Many prospectors will endeavor
to do enough work to ship ore in order
to get money to keep working their
claim. A smelter with prospects of a
refinery put up by such a progressive
and substantial people as the Miner-
Graves Syndicate is an augury of bettor
times on the coast.���Province.
The geological survey of Canada will
soon be compelled to offer better inducements to members else it will lose
all the brains it has so long boasted of.
The latest member to desert the ranks
is J. C. Gwillim, for several years a
valuable member of the survey. Mr.
Gwillim has accepted a more lucrative
position as consulting engineer to a
large mining syndicate operating at Nelson, B. C. Among other members wdio
have resigned from the geological survey
during the past, year ure: A P. Low,
who goes to Labrador for a Philadelphia

who went to the Crow's Nest coal fields

liberal to both investor and prospector,
ll might state that British Columbia
offers greater inducements to investors
than any otlier part of the continent,
without being accused of untruthfulness. It might say that mismanagement, and not the mining laws, has
been responsible for every failure in
mining in the Kootenay, It might say
that every shipping mine in Kootenay
and Yale, if properly managed, would
be a dividend paver. It might also say
that Ihe editor ..[ the Kossland Miller

that its criticisims are for political purposes only.

city.    At the last meeting of the license
commissioners a statement was made
that the chief of police had instructions
to suppress illegal practices of every
kind in the city. If this order lias been
given to the police, there can be no
doubt as to their duty in regard to the
games now being run and their only
course is lo seize the machines and arrest the players. There can be no excuse for allowing an illegal game to run
in the city, the only object of which is
to lleece miners and other wage earners
coming into the city to purchase necessary supplies. It is impossible to improve business by squandering the
money, whicli should go into necessary
purchases, on games of chance wdiere
Ihe percentage is so much in favor of
the gam... If the police bave received
instruct ions to suppress illegal practices,
the roulette wheels should not be in
operation in the city, and either they
or the palice commissioners will have to
I shoulder the responsibility. Last year
a boycott was placed on the Miner for
$2.00 opposing roulette. The Miner is still in
the light and intends that either the
police commissioners or the police will
be brought to task for the games now
being run. If the games are allowed to

From Ihat time, June 14, 1900, tin
Miner refused to do any city printing I
until the mayor's term of ollice expired,
and the Times got all Ihe city work. I
This year it was understood, at the beginning of tlie municipal term, thai the
city printing should be divided equally
between the two offices,although Alderman lioss is practically in the same
position in regard lo city printing this
year that Mayor Hardy was last year.
The equal division of the city printing
this year has been by the party of "fair
dealing,'' Alderman Boss' paper, the
Times, received in rond numbers $175,
and the Miner $7.r>. a difference of $100.
If Alderman Koss' paper during this
period had at any time been more representative of the business interests of the
city or the mining interests of the district than the Miner, the city would
have been justified in giving him the
larger share of ils patronage, but we do
not think there is a member of the council win. would care to publicly make
such an assertion. This statement is
given in the way of comparison between
the "favoritism" of the Hardy administration and the "fair dealing" of the
ticket at the head of which is Alderman
Boss. Mayor llar.lv would not resort
to legal quibbles in order to get. the j
city printing. Alderman Koss, as editor
of t he Times, has received payments for
printing from the city while a member
of tbe council, and more than double the
amount of the opposition paper.

would now enumerate seme of the benefits to be derived from investments in

up a bit, with perhaps a slight balance
in favor of British Columbia. Where
there is so much to criticize, there must

Miner might say that the mining laws
of British Columbia are similar to those

there has always been a very good hospital in the city, ample enough to accommodate all those requiring treatment,
the council decided to have another one.
The fact of their deciding to induce the
Sisters of Charity to erect a hospital here
would not have been of much importance in itself,, had they not at the same
time decided to give the Sisters a bonus
of $3,500, It is well known that a hospital of this kind is a business proposition,
and would not be erected here if the
Sisters did not think they could make it
pay. With the large number of men
working in the district this is an excellent field for the methods adopted bv
the Sisters to gain contributions for their
business enterprises, and with a good
hospital they will also be able to get
most of the monthly mine contribution!.

So   far   the   introduction   of   British
capital   here  has  not been an unmixed
blessing,  very truly says the  Victoria
Outlook.    Mines  discovered,   developed
and worked   by   Americans,   who came
up into the Kootenays from the south of
us -mines which were large  and steady
dividend payers���have been messed and
bungled till their discoverers would   not
know them : the whole   province has, in |
consequence  got  a  black  eve, and mil-[
lions  of dollars   have been lost through j
gross extravagance and mismanagement.
However successful the London   mining

climate and vile surroundings,"  he   has
not been a shining success either here,;

The following tribute to organized
labor appears in the most authoritive
mining magazine in the western states���
the Western Mining World���and coming
from such an old, organize.1 town as'
Butte, is all the more appreciated by
men who have reason to thank organization for their present position in society. I
The World says: "Whatever of criticism may from time to time be made
egainst the Miners'union by men who
feel thai in certain eases the organization may have gone beyond Ihe bounds
of equity aed prudence, the fact remains
that it is one of the most helpful
agencies ever devised to aid in upbuilding the community. Through its efforts
alone a scale of wages is maintained
that enable miners to enjoy usual advantages of life, build up a home, educate their children and ensure to the
commonwealth an intelligent, law-abiding, voting population. Were our well
paid and intelligent miners displaced by
the class of men working iu tiie coal
mines of the far east, the Intermountain
states would be under the political control of men incompetent to guard their
best interests and indifferent to the
rights of invested capital."

and highly dangerous form of oppression,
by which federal judges, in contempt of
all laws, become at once legislator, judge
and executioner.
"Third���We view with alarm the evident design to increase the standing
army, aside from the enormous expense
a large military establishment imposes
upon producers, wdio are the actual taxpayers. W>- know from historical lads
that il is Ihe chosen weapon of tyrants,
already a foe to individual rights and inconsistent with free institutions. Therefore, we express the hope that members
of organized labor everywhere will refrain from voluntary enlistment in any
department of the federal or state military service.
"Fourth���A graduated tax should be

the property tax should be levied on
land values alone.
"Fifth���We denounce the national
banking    system,   as   established   and
maintained in the interests of capital
alone, and inimical to the best interests
of producers, and we demand that the

us by reason of the expiration ..1' tlie
Chinese exclusion act, and demand the
re-enactment of a suitable law l.y the
federal government that will remove all
Asiatic races from competition with the
American workingmen and women, and
we urge organized labor to span- no
effort to have such a law .ma.'ted.

policy of organization is the lirst step
necessary to a realization of the linal
fundamental principles of organized

efforts in carrying out .. policy thai will
result in the attainment of a thorough

about lllll feet from surface, doing Into
the tunnel the miners tore tho laggin
out and found that ledge had not only
been crossed at the point indicated by
the engineer but that it had been partly
opened up by a short drift which was
run iu from a raise in the roof of the No.

lagged up nu.I would possibly never
have been located without some pretty
good engineering.
Opening this drift up and continuing
it along the vein to the west, Mr. War-;

For 45 feet along the vein it averages
over a foot of clean steel galena, assays
from which show a net return, allowing
for freight and treatment of over %"i a
ton or $1,600 to the car. In running
this drift several tons of ..re have been
taken out which arc now sacked ready
for shipment. The miners are al present doing their best to lix up the timbers of the old workings, and when they
get matters straightened oul will open
the drift further along the vein and

*ir?:-c-f>S.&?t^5-S-^&iJs-SrrC-$re THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY MINER.
June 2S, 1901.
The increasing recognition
growing importance of  the
f the fast-
district is a matter for much gratification to those interested in its progress,
whether they be resident or non-resident. Among numerous evidences that
the extent and value of its mineral re- j
sources are being recognized mention
may be made of two or three of the
more recent indications that the Boundary will eventually have as widely-
known a name as a mining center as
Kossland has today. The visit made
this month of Dr. Ledoux, for the express purpose of satisfying himself, on
behalf of large Ihiroyean buyers of copper, Ihat the output of this metal from
Boundary mines ..ill he considerable,
was in itself a testimony to the substantial advance the district has already
made. Then in a recent contribution to
the London Mining Journal, written,
to.., by a mining engineer having no
business connections or other interests
in the district, much stress was laid on
the unusually large size of the ore bodies
occurring here and the exceptionally
favorable nature, for the purposes of
economical smelting of the ore, which
was described sis "a self-fluxing one."
Vet, again, tlie statement made by the
general manager of the Canadian Hank
of Commerce, in the course of his address to the annual meeting of shareholders held in Toronto on 18th inst..
that "in the Boundary district the outlook is quite satisfactory," was another
tribute in favor ..f this district. Instances might easily be multiplied, but
the foregoing will go to show that recognition of the value and importance of
the mineral resources of the district is
wide-spread and, too, in directions that
cannot fail to attract more and more
attention among those disposed to invest capital where, as here, there is a
very promising field for its employment,
It seems that the public works department is still floundering about in vain
endeavors to find some philanthropist
who will build between Phoenix and
Summit City an $8,000 or $10,000 road
for about one-third of one or other of
those sums. Surely there are in tlie
district at least a half a dozen men any
one of whom would be prepared to give
an undertaking to build a serviceable
wagon road between the points mentioned and yet keep within the limits of
the appropriation available. Probably
he would not undertake to clear a liO-
foot right of way, nor make costly rock
cuts, nor even keep a boss the greater
part of his time making out the reports
the red-tape methods of tbe department
seem to make indispensable. The public works department made a show last
fall of commencing to arrange for building this road and now the summer season is half gone and no contract for doing the work has yet been entered into.
Is it possible to inject some horse sense
into those responsible for this muddling
delay? or is all of the appropriation to
be frittered away in the expenses of
visiting government agents and road inspectors? Cannot tlie department make
an official record in this district by managing to complete one four or live mile
road in two seasons? Really, government road-making in tlie Boundary appears to have been reduced to a mere
The Vancouver News-Advertiser stated that the Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting and Power company had defill-
alely decided to build a smelter at
Vancouver, with the intention of adding
a refinery to the plant in si short time
thereafter. The general manager of the
company, .lay P. Graves, is reported to
have since said in Rossland: "We are
still looking into the matter, and have
just had Mr. Williams, Mr Flnmerfolt
an.l others at the coast looking int.. the
question there. The lirst step on our
part would be t he construction of u
smelter. After this was in good running
order for say six months we would have
a better idea of the field for a refinery.
I anticipate thai the question of constructing the smelter at the coast will he
determined within sixty days. In event
of its being decided to go ahead with the
smelter a year would have to elapse before the enterprise would he completed
and iu thorough running order, and
another six months would pass by before
we fully determined as to the refinery,
so that the matter is very much in the
future as yet."
The Nelson Tribune lately called attention to the output of ore from Boundary mines in the following editorial
comment: "So far this month the
mines of the Boundary camps have
shipped 22,158 tons of gold-copper ore,
every ton of which was smelted at local
smelters" Whilst, it is quite true that
up to the 20th inst., inclusive, the tonnage of ore shipped was as stated, the
Miner, not in a critical spirit but from a
desire to take for the district smelters
only the credit that is their due, and no
more, wishes it to be known that the
tonnage above quoted include 2,976 tons
of ore from the B. C. mine, which ships
smelter. This fact notwithstanding, the
two district semelters, owned by the
(Iranby and British Columbia Copper
companies, respectively, are doing such
excellent work in the direction of treating ores that the claim that they are
establishing world records appears to be
well grounded.
Bernard MacDonald, manager of the
l.e Roi Mining company, Rossland, is
slated by the Spokesman-Review, to
have said, when iu Spokane recently:
"We are normally working about 1,120
men in our various properties at Kossland. Since the present trouble at our
Northport smelter arose we have laid ..IT
about 120. That means aligut 1,000 now
011 our payrolls. We cannot continue to
work for an in leflnite time unless we
have smelter facilities. The natural result will be a close down of our mines in
a few weeks unless the smelter starts
again   full   force."
tions  lo  the  provincial government  in j V-
that direction, which   it considers  very
desirable, it is not prepared to  take the
initiative iu the matter.

The labor trouble at the Northport
smelter is resulting in materially diminishing ore shipments from Rossland
mines. The output last week is given as
6,095 tons which compares unfavorably
with the record of more than 12,000 tons
reached a few weeks since. It is hoped,
though, that a settlement of the matters
in dispute will soon be reached, so that
smelting may be resumed at Northport
and ore shipments increased accordingly.

The hail storm experienced in Greenwood and vicinity last, Sunday morning
was about tbe most severe one yet known
to occur here. It did damage to gardens, stripping many of the young
plants of their foliage. The accumulation of hail on the roofs of buildings
prevented the water that fell during the
heavy rain that, followed from getting
away and as a consequence leakages
were common, to the detriment of plastered ceilings and walls. No very serious
losses have been reported though, except
that several gardens were practically destroyed.

Two members of the deputation ii, Interview the minister of education respecting the proposed sale of the existing school building and the erection ,,(
a new and suitable school house in a
more convenient and central position in
the town, have returned from the coast.
From Mr. Smailes it is learned that the
deputation was very courteously received
and the matters under consideration
were gone into very fully by the minister
and the superintendent of education.
Finally the represntations of thedeputu-
tion prevailed and the minister promised
that permission shall he given to sell
the present school building, as desired,
and that monetary provision shall be
made for the purchase of another site
and the erection of another building
more in accordance with the wishes of
the trustees, as representing the parents
and school-going children. Since Mr.
Smailes' return the trustees have held a
meeting and have made a formal application to the government for the concessions necessary to enable the requisite
arrangements to be made to accomplish
the objects in view.
It is understood that W. J, Noble, of
Eholt, has been offered and has accepted
the position of superintendent nf roads
for the Boundary district, his district to
extend from the summit of the mountain range east of Christina Lake westwards to Rock creek. The duties Mr.
Noble is to take up have for some time
past been performed by Provincial Constable I. A. Dinsmore, of Grand Forks,
who will under the new arrangement
have more time in which to attend to
his police and license inspection duties.
Mr. Noble is said to have had experience
in road building in tbe Cariboo country
in past years. It is to be hoped that he
had, for what is urgently needed in the
Boundary is not. so much an engineer
who from his office on the coast will send
plans and specifications, the carving out
of which would cost three or four times
the amount generally appropriated for
roadmaking in this district, as a man
who can lay out a good grade and make
a passable road over a much longer distance and postpone making a boulevard
for a short distance with no road beyond
until such time as the appropriations
leave a margin wide enough for advanced work. The roads built from
Greenwood to the several surrounding
mining camps in 1896-7 were equal to
the heavy haulage requirements of those
days, so if tbe government, will drop its
fancy road-making experiments, that
usually stop miles short of everywhere,
and adopt the common-sense methods
that are serviceable enough in new districts, the opening of the country will
be much facilitated.
will shortly have more attention in the
direction of doing development work
than it has had for some time past.
The regular annual meeting of the W.
C. T. I', will be held next Tuesday
evening in tbe Methodist church. All
members are requested to be present as
it will be election of officers. Friends of
the temperance cause are cordially invited to attend.
On May Hi Fred Roy commenced the
manufacture of cigars in Greenwood and
since then the Greenwood Cigar Factory
has been kept busily employed in its endeavors to meet tbe local demand for
the home made Boundary Line cigar,
which is a white labor, union made, Havana tiller cigar. From ils introduction it
quickly won its way among local smokers
so  that   Mr.   Boy   finds it necessary  to
shortly secure additional help in order
to keep pace with the demand, No attempt has yet been made to introduce
the cigar to smokers in other Boundary
towns, although it has found its way to
Deadwood and the store at the Mother
Lode mine without being pushed by the
manufacturer. Later he may offer this
growing favorite to hotels and stores at
Phoenix and Eholt, but thus far all
made have found a ready sale in Greenwood. The industry appears to be one
that has come to Btay.
