the Winnipeg���Board of
The new hoist at the Mother Lode
mine is now running smoothly, and the
ore sorting plant is also proving decidedly successful. The belt for seperately
conveying the fine ore to the ore bins is
being put in place and will be in running
order next week. Its operation will relieve the picking belt of about half tbe
quantity nf ore now going over the latter
and will consequently greatly facilitate
ore sorting work. Most of the ore hoisted lately has been taken from tbe stopes
on the 200 level, but those oh the 300
are being gradually cleared of rock
previously broken down and as more
room is made for men to work, the output from this lower level increases. Ore
is also being mined at the surface, the
quarry yielding about 100 tons daily,
out of mine and quarry together now
being nearly 400 tons a day, which
quantity however is not sufficient to
allow of the smelter being gained on to
appreciable extent. A quarry is also to
be opened on the company's Primrose
claim, adjoining the Mother Lode, near
where a big showing of ore was exposed
when tbe railway line was being graded,
and a switch is being put in bere for
convenience in loading cars. Shipments
from the mine to the smelter at Greenwood have latterly averaged 360 tons a
day. An increase to at least 400 tons
will shortly be made. Tenders for deepening the main shaft, now down 320
feet, have been invited and this work
will be put in hand towards the end of
the current month. It is intended to
sink to the 500-foot level, but when the
400 is reached a crosscut will probably
be run at that depth before continuing
down to the 500.
the hoilers have unexpectedly shown
signs of breaking down and will necessitate considerable expense in renewals.
New flues have been imported from
Spokane and a boilermaker is now engaged in replacing the dues in both
The development of the property has
proceeded satisfactorily. The sinking of
winze on the second north vein, 300-foot
level, in which so far very encouraging
results have been obtained, will be continued with the utmost vigor for say
another 55 feet, thus making it 150 feet
in depth from the collar of the winze.
At a depth of 88 feet solid ore, 12 feet
wide, was met with. When a depth of
150 feet has been gained in the winze it
is the intention to crosscut and drift on
the ore.
As shown by the balance sheet, the
unmatured liabilities of the company
amount to $1,386.53, against which, however, the company haB cash on hand
$1,734.66, and in addition a lien on
stock for calls in arrears amounting to
over $2,000, which may fairly be considered good, in view of the market price
of the stock. No ore shipments have
been made by the new company and until tliese occur tlie calls will continue to
be the only source of revenue.
THE  NO.   7   MINE.
The power plant, consisting of a 100-
horse powsr boiler, 8x10 hoisting engine,
12x16 air compressor, with a capacity of
four to five drills, etc., which during tlie
past month has been in course of installation at the No. 7 mine, Central camp,
grain elevators, grain, fruits, etc., and
suggesting that the Dominion government does not yet attach much importance to tbe mining industry, which is
a very important one in this province,
whatever it may be in the east.
THE   B.   C^ MINE.
The II. C. is keeping up its ore shipments to Trail.  A new arrangement has
been entered into with the Trail smelter
under which the mine will  increase its
tonnage  and   make   its   shipments to
Trail   proportionately large.     Preparations are well  forward  for doing some1
prospecting in the mine with a diamond '
drill,   The appliances for this are at the
mine and the men to work them are ex-1
pected to arrive any day.
Dave Evans, who last spring was in
charge of the Hartford, in Wellington
camp, and who lately succeeded John
M. Scrafford as superintendent of tbe
Blue Bell, in Summit camp, has run into a fine body of ore in a drift at, the
100-foot level. A crosscut was run from
the shaft to the ledge which was followed
along the footwall until tbis strike was
made. The whole face of tbe drift is reported to be now in solid ore of good

The Snowshoe mine, in (ireenwood
camp, is being developed by both shaft
and tunnel workings. An incline shaft
has been sunk 200 feet and crosscuts and
drifts have been run at both 100 and 200
foot levels. Tbe developments have
opened up a lot of ore. From the 200
foot level a diamond drill bole has been
put down 500 feet.
The crosscut tunnel, known as the
railway tunnel, is in more than 500 feet.
It has encountered one body of ore and
is now being driven ahead in the hope
of another payshoot being met with. A
winze in tbe tunnel has be sunk UK)feet
and a crosscut in the bottom of it has
shown that the ore continues at that
depth and is of good grade. This ore
body, as developed by the tunnel and
winze, has been shown to have an average dip of about  45 degrees northerly,
From tbe published report of tlie
statutory meeting of the Winnipeg
Mines, Limited, held at Rossland on
Wednesday, 10th inst, it is gathered that
the following board of directors was then
elected: John Mack. Spokane; W. W.
Gibbs, Portland; Richard Plewman,
Rosslond ; Alfred McMillan, Rossland ;
Robert Hodge, Rossland and R. Klgood
Plewman, Rossland. The directors
elected the following officers: president,
E, K. Austin; vice-president, Alfred
McMillan ; secretary-treasurer and managing director, Richard Plewman.
The report of Superintendent N. J.
Tregear Bhows that since the reorganized
company began operations, on January
1, 222 feet of drifting and crosscutting,
25 feet of upraising and 100 feet of sinking had been done, nnd that twenty-two
men had been employed continuously.
The managing director reported that
in taking over tlie Winnipeg property
the new company assumed tbe liabilities
of tlie old company, consisting of an
overdraft at the Canadian Bank of Commerce to the amount of $7,208.51. and
also alloted !)8i),42li Hbares, with 96 per
cent, paid up, to the liquidator in trust
for the shareholders in the old company.
Of the latter 940,771 shares have been
surrendered and exchanged for shares
in the new company. To meet the indebtedness and provide for the further
development of tbe property five calls in
ail bave been levied and of these, three
calls, amounting to 2 cents per share,
have becomu due. The sum of $17,700.-
79 has been received on account of calls
up to March 31, 1901. From the funds
thus obtained the liabilities of the old
company bave been liquidated, reorganization and incorporation expenses have
been met and the payrolls and bills for
supplies for December, January and
February have been paid, leaving a balance of cash in tbe bank of $1,734.(in.
Tbe expenditures on account of improvements and increase of plant consisted mainly of the purchase of a new
hoiBting cable sheave and bucket, No. 2
Cameron sinking pump, 5x5 hoisting
engine, tbree 3l_j inch machine drills,
2,000 feet of rails and some minor articles.

will, it is expected, be in operation about
the 20th inst. Since work was resumed
here a few weeks ago, the double compartment shaft, sunk to the 139-foot
level in 1897, has been re-timbered down
to the 65-foot level on which 160 to 170
feet of drifting have lately been tlone.
About 125 tons of ore have been taken
out and everything is in readiness below
ground for commencing stoping so soon
as tbe machinery shall be started running. Only 25 tons of ore bave been
sent to the smelter at (Ireenwood as yet,
the road just now not being in good condition for hauling.
The department of agriculture, Otta
wa, lately sent out a circular letter,
dated March 25 and rending as follows:
" We understand it will be several
months yet before th" large number of
awards obtained by Canadians at tbe
world's fair, Paris. 1900, are ready to
send out by the French authorities. We
have prepared a diploma here to mail to
each of the exhibitors entitled to receive
an award, pending the receipt of the
original prizes from Paris. We have
pleasure in sending you one of these
diplomas. (Signed ) James George Jar-
dine, commissioner Paris exhibition."
A copy of the so-called diploma has,
seemingly, been issued to every contributor to the mineral exhibit. Apart
from the fact that its consequent cheapness takes away altogether from its
value, the illustrations on the certificate
are entirely unsuitable for a mining exhibit, these  being a  ploughing scene,
the purpose and the local agent, K. P.
Williams, goes over to Kossland to
Rossland select part of tbe stock and
balance will be sent direct from Sherbrooke, Quebec, to (ireenwood. A stock
of from $40,000 to $50,000 will be curried,
including air compressors up to 8-drills
capacity, boilers, air receivers, hoisting
engines, machine drills, mine pumps,
ore buckets and curs and otlier milling
plant and requisites, Local purchasers
will have the benefit of a saving in
freight and of selecting on the spot what
they require.
Several shareholders iu the Hock
Creek Consolidated Placer Mining company visited the company's placer
claims, five miles up the creek from the
Rock Creek townsite, last Tuesday.
Leaving Greenwood at 4 a. 111. the party
reached its destination shortly after 9
o'clock. It was found that the dam was
well forward towards completion, with
the gate finished and the waste Hume
now being constructed. ���' Booming "
operations will not be commenced until
about a fortnight hence, by which time
all tbe ice should be out of the narrow
canyon, through which the creek Hows

obstacles to a clear run for (he rush ol'
water and travel shall have been removed. Several pans of wash, taken
from just below the dam by members of
the visiting party, each gave excellent
prospects in rough gold, so that sanguine
expectations of future good returns were

raise from the tunnell, at the westerly
extremity of the shoot of ore, now up
about 10(1 feet, is in ore also of good
grade. The main object in view in making this raise is to improve the ventilation of these working^ hut it is at the
same time good development work since
it is proving ihe on- tu he continuous.
Work now iu progress also includes the
continuation of the crosscut from the
winzes and of the raise Inwards the surface, The surface site has been chosen
for a shaft, to nice! the raise, and linking will shortly commence
The twelve men who have the contract
for deepening the main shaft of the Sunset, in Deadwood camp, are making
speedy progress with that work. During
four weeks they have sunk the two-
compartment shaft���each compartment
4ioxo���about 120 leet below the 200
level. As the sinking is in rock, this is
fast Work. Unless any development
should take place to make a change in
the present plans advisable, sinking will
most likely be continued to the 500-foot
level before crosscutting, a decision to
this effect having been practically arrived at by the management.

II. li. Kirkpatrick, for some time district representative in the Boundary of
the James Cooper Manufacturing company of Montreal, left Rossland last
week on his return east to there assume
new duties iu connection with the company's business. K. A. 0. McNally of
Rossland will now look after the company's interests in tbis district, paying
occasional visits to endeavor to secure
orders for mining plant  and machinery.
During the current week a quantity of
Carmi ore has been transferred from the
Pyritic smelter, near Boundary Falls, to
the British Columbia Copper company's
smelter at (Ireenwood. Treatment at
the latter works of 600 tons of this ore
has been arranged for. It is staled that
about 900 tons in all were hauled from
the mine, so there must be about 300
tons more either at Midway or somewhere  en   route.
Speaking at a railway public meeting
at Vancouver the other night, Smith
Curtis, M. P. P. for the Kossland riding
of West. Kootenay, which includes the
Bonndary district, said, according to a
newspaper report, that tbe output of the
Rossland riding iu 1899 was 170,000 tons
of ore; in 1900 it was 335,000 tons; at
end of 1901 it would be 1,500,000, and at
the end of 1902, 2,550,000.
The crosscut at the 112-foot level on
the Kambler, near Eholt, at 140 feet in
from the shaft, is in freely mineralized
rock, but clean ore has not yet been encountered. Mr. Davis, who has charge
of the work, is hopftil that a change for
the better will shortly take place. The
Rambler is owned by the Everett and
Spokane Mining company.
Grading the site for tbe copper converters that are to be added to tbe plant
of the Granby smelter, at (irand Forks,
is now in progress. Preparations are
also being made for the two new furnaces the management hrs decided to
put in. The prospects are favorable for
the establishment here of one of tbe
largest smelting works in the province.
The report that James F. Tichenor,
vice president of the British Columbia
Copper company of New York, will
shortly visit the company's smelter at
Greenwood and the Mother Lode mine,
cannot be confirmed. General Manager
Keffer not having received any advice
that Mr. Tichnor is coming in.

special services were held on Easter
Following tbe several observances,
necessarily of an entirely opposite
nature, that the previous week marked
the close of the Lenten season,
Easter services at St. .hide's church
of England were bright and cheering, j
Holy communion was celebrated at 8 a. I

Evensong at 7 :30 p. in. All these services were well attended, the congregation in the evening having been an uti-
lisually large one. The addresses morning
and evening by Rev. w. a  Robins,  M.
A., priest iii charge, wt'Xf thoughtful,
earnest ami. of course, peculiarly appropriate to the festal season that was
being observed. The musical portion of
the services was well rendered, all taking a leading part in it having evidently
assiduously practised so as to contribute
their quota towards making the services
thoroughly devotional and helpful. Tbe
singing of the hymns was particularly
good, the congregation joining in
heartily, following the excellent lead of
the choir. The Easter decorations,
though not. pretentious, were very tasteful and effective, thanks largely to tbe
considerate forethought of several ladies
who had obtained from Spokane and
other outside places Easter lilies and
other Bowers and foliage, which were
supplemented by contributions from
local sources. On the alter was a pair
of solid brass candlesticks, lately received from England, the kindly gift of
the Countess Grosvenor, whilst the Communion vessels, also used on Easter Day
for the first time, were as well, a gift to
St. .lude's church. Altogether the day's
services were creditable to so young a
community and were an earnest of better things when local conditions shall
have become more favorable.
The services in the Roman Catholic
church were very impressive. A special
feature was the musical part of the
service In the morning Mass in B
Flat by M. Stoeclin, tboBe taking part
were: sopranos, Mrs. Methot, Mrs. Caulfield and Miss Massom; alto, Miss A.
Massom ; tenors, Messrs. Maynard and
McCaffrery; bass, Messrs. Geo. E. and
Jack Mundy.
Offertory, "Regina Ooeli," rendered
by Mrs. Methol and Miss Massam.
At evening services, Vespers were
chanted by the choir, followed by a
hymn, "Holy Child," solo by Miss
Massam. At the benediction a solo
"Ave Maria" was was rendered by Mrs.
After benediction Rev. F'ather Bedard
gave a very interesting discourse on the
birth of Christ. The musical part of
the service was under the direction of
Professor Kauffmann.
Large congregations attended both the
morning and evening services in the
Methodist church. The building was
decorated with palms and Howers. The
music consisted of Easter hymns and an
anthem by the choir. The morning
sermon was addressed to the young
people. In the evening the discourse
was on theCrucefixion and Resurrection.
No special services were held in the
Baptist church. In the morning the
subject of discourse was tbe Resurrection, fn the evening no service was
held in (ireenwood, Rev. Mr. Davies,
the paster of the church, preaching at
the Mothee Lode.
Sir.��� It would be wise for the people
of (ireenwood to consider well the demand of the local tramway company before voting ou it. Bonuses are a creation
of the evil one for the purpose of ruining
small and struggling communities, and
I consider we have gone far enough, if
not too far, in already agreeing to guarantee the dividends of this company up
to 5 per cent, on $100,000. If it is policy
to choose tbe lesser of two evils then we
ought to stay by the original agreement,
for at the worst, we would only he liable
lor $5,000 per annum (or 20 years, less
the amount tbe roatl would earn, which
might be considerable, but by the new
proposal we would be liable for $5,000
for 20 years with no deductions, or possibility of any. And again in the former
case if the road failed to pay aud tbe
company went into liqidation our liability would cease, but in the latter case,
in similar circumstances, our liability
would continue until our indebtedness
was discharged. We Bhall very likely
have the old cry of the appreciation of
property and tbe business this road will
bring to the town, but the increased
business will go into the hands of a very
few ; the only increase to property will
be the natural one of increase of taxes
on the property. 1 am aware of the
feeling among some in the community
that this bonus should be given butonly
on the ground that the spending of the
hundred or hundred and fifty thousand
it  would  take to build  the  road  will
make things busy for a while, and then.
taking advantage of this, will be enabl-
ed to sell out while the temporary good
times last, leaving the burden oh the |
stayers, or those who are determined to
make Greenwood their home.
I hope the people of Greenwood will,
if this company is unable to build the
road, close on them on the 15th of April,
and give the charter to a company that
can build it or build it themselves They
might as well do so as to advance the
money to build it, for $50,000 would
represent from one-half to  one-third of
the completed price.
On the other hand, if they decide to
grant tbe bonus, I hope tbey will be up-
to-date enough to demand stockfor their
cash and that only local labor be employed and at a rate to be fixed by the
council. If the tramway company are
in earnest they can have no possible objections to either of these propositions,
which would only be justice to the
citizens who would be pulling them out
of a tight place.   Vours etc., A. Sredk.

F. Williams was awakened by some one
entering his store. He slipped out the
back way, got assistance from the Pacific
Hotel, came back and captured Walter
Brewester. It will be remembered that
Brewester served a term of twelve
months for defrauding the C. P. R. at

brought before Police Magistrate Hallett
on tlie charge of burglary, and was committed for trial. His case will probably
come up for trial at the spring assizes to

April 13, 1901.
The recent passing by the provincial
legislature of a bill for the incorporation
of the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power company, limited,
with a nominal capital of $15,000,000,
directs anew public attention to the important mining and smelting interests
to acquire and more extensively operate
which is the main object of this somewhat ambitious organization. Much
has been published from time to time
regarding this group of mines situate in
Greenwood camp, and variously known
as the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill
group and the Miner-Graves properties,
but too much publicity cannot well be
given to the fact that these mines do
exist in the Boundary district and that
they are no', only putting out a comparatively large quantity of ore daily,
but bid fair ere long to increase their
output to such an extentas will probably
place them in the lead in this province
as ore producers. This being BO, advantage is here being taken of the publication of the publication last month in
the New York Mining and Engineering
Journal of a specially contributed descriptive article of them from the pen
of that journal's provincial representative, W. M. Brewer, M. E., the reproduction of which article in these columns
will be acceptable to many readers of
the Miner under whose notice it had
not previously come.
For the information of those not
familiar with the history of the Old
Ironsides and Knob Hill, it may be
stated that both these mineral claims
were located in the summer of 1891
They were recorded on July 25 of that
year at the mining recorder's office at
Osoyoos, the Boundary Creek district
then being included in the Osoyoos
Mining division. The Old Ironsides
was recorded in the name of M. Hotter,
since deceased, and the Knob Hill in
that of H. White, with whom was later
associated as part owners John Stevens
and the late H. P. Paimerston, townsite
agent st Midway in 1893-5. The other
claims included in the group were later
locations and were acquired by the
present owners during the last three or
four years. There was not a great deal
of development done on the Knob Hill
and Old Ironsides prior to 1897, but
from early in that, year to the present
time work has been practically continu
Otis, until today the number of lineal
feet of work done in underground development of the whole group aggregates more than are contained in two
miles. It was not, however, until July
1900, that the shipment of ore commenced. Shipments during the three
months to September 30th following
were comparatively small, totaling only
15,495 tons for that period, but the succeeding three months to December 31
saw an increase more than three-fold-
to 49,040 tons, which for the quarter
ending March 31 of the current year the
output aggregated 54,018 tons. For nine
months to 31st ult., then, the total tor
nage of ore sent to the Granby smelter
at Grand Forks from this group of
mines was 19,163 tons, as follows :

Total 119 153
Mr. Brewer's description of those
properties is as follows:
" The group of mines consists of the
Knob Hill, Old Ironsides, Fourth of
July, Aetna, Victoria, Grey Eagle, Tip
Top, Banner and Triangle Fraction. The
total area covered by these locations is
about 300 acres. Although owned by
four different companies, the entire
group is under one management, and
locally known as the Graves-Miner or
Granby properties The Knob Hill and
Old Ironsides are the oldest locations,
and were staked under the old law each
600 feet wide by 1,500 feet long, with
extra-lateral rightB similar to the law in
force in tlie United States.
"All the development work performed
at the present time has been confined
to the Knob Hill, Old Ironsides, Victoria, Aetna and Grey Eagle. As the
ore bodies in the two first named pitch
to the east at an angle of about 55 degrees, much of the development work
on the three last named, which are lo
cated to the east of the two first-named,
has been done on the ore bodies which
outcrop on the older locations.
' Some of the characteristics of the
ore bodies are unique. In the first plaoe
the outcrop csnsists of magnetite carrying low copper values and a small percentage of lime in the gangue. As depth
is attained it has been determined by
assay and smelting that the copper
values and lime increase to such an extent as to render the ore not only of
commercial value, but also self-fluxing,
while the percentage of sulphur remains
so low that no roasting is necessary previous to charging the furnaces, while
the average percentage of iron, together
with the surface ores, which are practically all iron, is sufficient to form the
matte, thus obviating the necessity of
adding other iron ore to the smelter
charge. The result of this combination
decreases the cost of smelting to a minimum, and when it is considered that all
the motive power at the smelter is furnished by water it can readily be seen
that the problem of treating these low-
grade ores has been practically solved.
" Unless a geological survey of the
surface is made, it is impossible to correctly classify these ore bodies and determine whether they belong to contact deposits or veins, or whether they
should be considered as belonging to
wide mineralized zones, the mode of deposition of the ore being from replacement. Probably this latter is the most
nearly correct hypothesis on which to
base the classification. The country
rock shows mineralization even beyond
the boundary or foot-wall of the ore
body, which appears to increase gradually until a point a few feet from the
foot-wall the mineralization has become
so strong that pay ore is encountered.
The first few feet of the mineralized
mass of ore body from the foot-wall carries lean material and apparently less
lime than the average ore. The unaltered country rock on the foot-wall iB
a purpilish-greenish rock, probably an
andesite. On the hanging-wall or eastern side of the ore body a porphyry dyke
is said to occur as an intrusive, but nowhere in the workings has this dyke
been exposed, although on tbe 300-foot
level of the Old Ironsides a diamond
drill has been used to bore toward it,
and the writer was informed that about
400 feet of the ground 011 that side had
been thus prospected and no porphyry
"The total development on this group
of mines to January 1st, 1901, was 10,053
feet, including shafts, upraises, drifts,
crosscutB and winzes. This has been
accomplished with 15 air drills.
" The shafts numbered 1 and 2 on the
Old Ironsides are located near the center
of the claim. From the outcrops the
ore bodies are apparently continuous
from the Knob Hill on the summit of
the mountain thruUgh the Old Ironsides
located adjoining but lower down the
mountain This will be determined
shortly, as a drift in the 200-foot level of
the Old Ironsides is being driven to connect with the bottom of the winze sunk
from the main tunnel level on the Knob
Hill. Should this connection prove that
the ore body maintains its continuity,
then the stope on the 300-foot level of
the Old Ironsides is 550 feet below the
apex or outcrop on tho Knob Hill vertical depth.
"The development 01; the Knob Hill
consists of an open cut and main tunnel
the former about sixty feet wide but not
showing limits of ore body on either
side. The face or breast of this cut at
the time of the writer's visit was 30 feet
high. The output from this cut at that
time was 150 tons per day.
"The tunnel, about 140feet below the
floor of the open cut, has been driven
across tlie northeast corner of the claim
from near the center of the northern
end line a distance of 520 feet, where it
intersects the side line, thence along the
side line 670 seet. This tunnel is all in
ore. At a point 350 feet in, a winze has
been sunk 200 feet deep, the first 150
feet all in ore; at that point the ore
dips away towards the east. A crosscut run from the bottom of tbe winze
toward the east was driven through barren material half the distance. At that
point an upraise was made in ore, the
ore occurring near the bottom and carried to the top.
" Stopes on the adit level were opened
on west side of main tunnel, the first
being started 250 feet from mouth and
continued 820 feet toward the south in
a direct line. The width of this stoping
ground as blocked out averages 200 feet.
No. 1 s ope is 200 feet long by 200 feet
wide. Nos. 2 and 3 stopes have their
lengths exposed by drifts on eaBtside,
with the width determined by crosscuts,
but are not drifted on along the west
side. All of these stopes are connected.
The average vertical height of ore in
these stopes is 150 feet between the adit
level and floor of open cut. The two
levels are connected with an air shaft
started west of No. 1 stope with its
mouth at northeast corner of the open
cut. This shaft is 140 feet deep and is
used as a chute for dumping ore from
open cut to adit level, whence it is
trammed to the ore bins on tlie side
"At a point (150 feet from the mouth of
the main tunnel a crosscut has been run
180 feet towartl the east into the Aetna
claim. This passed through mineralized
material, but not sufficiently high-grade
to ship.Another crosscut 300 feet south
of first was driven towards the east in
ore the first 50 feet, then through mixed
material, but apparently ledge matter.
A crosscut has also been driven 175 feet
toward the west in ore. The face of this
crosscut is apparently the western
boundary or fcotwall of the ore body.
An air shaft sunk near the face is 192
feet deep. At a point 163 feet from the
main tunnel in the first crosscut mentioned, a drift has been driven into the
Grey Eagle ground and run 367 feet.
The material is all mineralized, but the
good ore apparently lies to the west of
this drift.
On the Old Ironsides the development
has been carried to the 300-foot level and
No 2 shaft sunk to the 400-foot. No. 1
ahaft is vertical and 200 feet deep. On
this level four stopes have been opened,
the distance from north to south along
them being 700 feet. The shaft was
sunk in ore for about fifty feet; there
the ore dipped away from the shaft and
the remaining 150 feet is in country
rock. A crosscut was driven from the
bottom of the shaft 90 feet, where the
footwall of the ore body was exposed,
and the crosscut continued toward the
east 800 feet. About 600 feet of this
distance traverses a portion of the Victoria claim, which adjoins the Old Ironsides. In this crosscut three ledges of
ore were exposed; the first about 100
feet thick ; the second averaging about
80 feet, in the crosBcut only showing 50
feet, but widening toward the south ;
the third ledge is 130 feet thick ; a portion of this ledge, though, is not shipping ore. A drift haB been driven on
the 200-foot level, along the west boundary or foot-wall, a distance of 850 feet.
TIub shows that the boundary waves
slightly, and that the ore dips to tlie
east at angles varying from 68 degrees
to nearly vertical.
" Four crosscuts on the 200-foot level
have exposed blocks of ore of the following widths: 240 feet, 250 feet, 280
feet and 280 feet. A portion of these
blocks had been Btoped two sets of timbers, or 16 feet high, at the time of the
writer's visit. Two stopes have been
started on the Victoria ground on the
second ledge, but the full measurement
cannot be estimated at present because,
while the western boundary or foot-
wall had been exposed anddrilted along,
yet the ore body had not been crosscut
to the eastern boundary or hanging-
"An immediate level has been opened
between the 200 and 300-foot. Ground
for stoping 160 feet bv 40 feet has been
blocked out and the stope carried up
one set of timbers or 8 feet. This is the
same ore body as in No. 1 stope oil the
on the 200-foot level. This block of ore
is shown to be 300 feet long at least
through an upraise to the south, but it-t
full width or thickness is undetermined ;
the thickness fully exposed will average
45 feet.
" No. 2 shaft is 400 feet deep, but no
station has been opened at that level.
On the 200-foot level a crosscut has been
driven a total length of 890 feet; ol this
520 feet is towartl the east from the
shaft and 170 feet toward the west. Apparently the same body of ore developed
on the 200-foot level was encountered on
the 200 at a distance of 190 feet east
from the shaft, and carried ore to the
end of the crosscut. About 20 feet of
the body, though, is not of a shipping
grade. An upraise for ventilation from
the 300-foot level to the 200 exposes the
the third ore body as it dips across the
upraise near the top.
" From the loregoing detailed description of the underground workings examined by the writer it will be seen
that enormous ore reserves have been
blocked out, which will aggregate between 3,000,000 and 4,000,000 tons. This
is low in grade, and of course the management anticipates the occurrence of
lean streaks through portions of the
huge masses blocked out ready for stoping. I'p to the present time, however,
no sorting either at the mine or smelter
has been necessary. The same policy
as prevails at the Homestake and other
big mines of treating the entire product
has been adoptetl by the Geaves-Miner
syndicate as being more economical,
considering the favorable conditions
surrounding the smelter plant, and the
characteristics of the ore than would
be any system of sorting."

not fulfil the terms of agreement there
is no reason why the city should not
own and operate the electric light system, providing debentures can be sold
to advantage. So far as the tramway
is concerned, it would be impossible for
the city to handle so large an undertaking at the present time, but the fact
that the promoters of the scheme are
asking for a bonus from the city, gives
the council an excellent opportunity to
safeguard the rights of the people by
stipulating in the bylaw to be submitted
a continuous operation of the road, and
the maximum rates to be charged for

lately taken to dark and mysterious
ways. Although a public body, elected
by the people to do business as other
representative bodies do, they prefer to
transact the affairs of the city incaticus.
This is especially so when the tramway
promoters have propositions to lay before the council. In transacting the
business of tbe city there can surely be
no occasion for secrecy. Any reasonable
scheme that has for its object the construction and operation of a tramway
between this city and Greenwood and
Wellington camp should meet with tlie
approval of property owners here. To
the people of (ireenwood as a whole the
tramway question is a very important
one, and no matter what scheme for
its construction the council may place
before them, will require careful deliberation and full discussion. All
questions regarding it should be discussed in open council, and the views
of the aldermen and the promoters of

While a bonus of $50,000 may appear
a large sum to the two thousand odd inhabitants of the city at. the present
time, that amount distributed over a
period of twenty or twenty-live years
will not be a very heavy burden to a
population more than doubling itself
every five years. It is the'property
owners of five, ten and fifteen years
hence who will pay the bonus and not
those here at present. It is very necessary to the prosperity of Greenwood
that direct rail communication should
be had with tlie mines of Greenwood
and Wellington camps���the one four
and the other seven miles distant���thus
completing the last link that will make
the whole Boundary district tributary
to (ireenwood. The trade of these two

Peterson and Chris. McDonnell, the
owners who bonded the   property to the
Tu rney syndicate, have expended considerable on the Copper King and
opened up an Immense showing of ore
carrying a high percentage of copper.
The price of the bond is $60,000 and
calls for continuous work during the
term of the bond. It provides that $500
per month shall be expended in development work the first six months,
and $1,500 per month during the balance of the time. While the bond
specifies that the above shall be expended on work on the property each
month, the new company intends to
operate on a much more extensive scale.
The bond runs for twenty-one months.
Owing to tlie fact that the district east
of Bossburg has not been fashionable,
moneyed mining men have not given it
the same attention as given to other
camps with far  less  mineral  showings.

Road superintendent I. A. Dinsmore
is putting repair gangs on the district
main roads now that the snow is gone
from the valleys. When in Greenwood
a few days since his attention was
drawn by the local boarti of trade to
the necessity for altering and improving the Deadwood camp road where it
enters the town, the slag dump at the
smelter interfering with the road in use
for some time past. Mr. Dinsmore
looked into matters and afterwards reported to the provincial lands and
lands and works department on alternate schemes for improvement suggested
to him.
The work of constructing the road
from Summit camp to Phoenix, promised last fall by the provincial government is to be put in hand as soon as the
snow goes from the hills along its route,
probably a month or six weeks hence.
Tlie bridge over the North Fork of
Kettle river, near Neil Hardy's preemption, is to be commenced without
further delay, so that ore may be the
more conveniently hauled from the
Little Bertha, Golden Eagle, Pathfinder
and other east side mineral claims, to
the railway switch between Fisherman
and Eholt, for shipment to the Greenwood smelter, which has offered a
lower treatment rate on ore from the
North Fork than has hitherto been paid
The decision of the local government
to open the office of agent general of the
province in London, England, without
delay is a commendable one, and it is a
matter of general hope that the work
which it is to carry on will be prosecuted
in an active and enterprising spirit. This
office, the duties of which if properly
discharged by the man who is placed at
the head of it, will, no doubt, be of great
benefit to the province and ought to
turn the attention of capital to our mining districts here in a manner even more
pronounced than hitherto. Accortling
to a despatch, R. E. Gosnell is to go to
London at once for the purpose of opening the office and preparing the way for
Mr. Turner. No better selection could
have been made for this duty than Mr.
Gosnell. He understands the country
and believes in it. He is a man of ability
and a hard worker, antl will perform the
duties of the office well and conscientiously, Mr. Gosnell, perhaps, has as
complete a knowledge of the various resources of this province aw any man in
it, as he has given them the closest
study for many years, and may, therefore be termed a specialist in this matter.
For this reason he should, and we believe he will, be able to impart a knowledge with which he may be said tn be
fairly saturated, of the province to those
with whom he may come in contact in
London which will rebound to the great
good of the province. Mr. Turner, the
agent general, has more than ordinary
capacity, and is gifted with just that
character and those qualities which
should make the time which he spends
in London a source of value and profit
to the province, ft Is palpable that
Messrs. Turner and Gosnell will make
a strong team, as they have been long
associated with each other, and as each
has an admiration for the other, they
will pull well together while they are in
London. -Rossland Miner.
In the provincial legislature last ��eek,
on motion for the.third reading of the
Midway and Vernon railway bill. Hon.
I). M. Eberts moved that the following
section be addetl to the bill:
" The company shall, before the railway is opened for the carriage of freight
and passengers, give security to the
satisfaction of the lieutenant-governor
in council (1) That the lieutenant-governor in council shall have the absolute
control of the rates for freight anil passenger traffici (2) That in the event of
a charter being granted by the Dominion government to the promoters
herein for a line of railway over or
parallel to the route proposed in this
act, the foregoing conditions shall he assumed and carried out by the company
so incorporated as a contract and obligation of said company prior to any charge
Hon, Joseph Martin said be thought
the wording of the section might, be
changed to provide that the act should
not come into effect until such time as
the company should give security in a
certain sum to the satisfaction of the
lieutenant-governor in council. He
moved in amendment that:
" This act shall not come into force or
effect until such  time as the company
shall give security  to the amount of	
dollars, to the satisfaction of the lieutenant-governor in council. (1) That
the lieutenant-governor in council shall
have the absolute control of the rates
for freight and passenger traffic: (2)
That in the event, of Dominion legislation bringing this railway company
under the exclusive jurisdiction of the
parliament of Canada, the foregoing conditions shall be carried out bv the com
pany hereby incorporated, as a contract
and obligation of said company prior to
any other charge thereon."
Hon. Smith Curtis thought the greatest possible care should be taken to
frame the amendment in such a way as
to prevent any possible conflict of authority between the Dominion and local
parliaments. He suggested that it be
allowed to stand over until after recess,
anil then be  carefully drafted  and em-
j bodied in the general railway act.
By consent the debate  was  then  ad-
1 joumed until after the Easter recess.
The number of lawsuits of two special
classes is certain to increase hugely if
the passing of the highly objectionable
champertv bill facilitates the getting up
on sharing terms of speculative actions
by a certain class of lawyers. These are
actions in regard to mining claims, in
which the most will be made by sharp
practitioners of possible technical defects in title and in libel suits. Granted
the passing of the bill, there will be
more than one additional county court
judge required for the mining upper
country, but certainly the public generally will not gain by a measure expressly designed to increase to a maximum the number of lawsuits in British
Columbia. Evidently the ordinary lay-
member of the legislature has by no
means "caught on" to wdiat the passing of the champerty bill means���a flood
of speculative la wsuits.-VancouverNews.

The railway question is today the one
which absorbs interest from all other
matters on the American continent. In
the States a colossal combination haB
practically nulified competition atone
stroke. The Dominion government ia
confronted with the alternative of
adopting the principle of government
ownership or of seeing the national railway system swallowed up by
the same combination. The Ontario
government has frankly adopted a policy
of constructing and operating its own
lines in future. Manitoba is divided
into two parties over the Hoblin railway
deal. In this province the government
lintls its very existence at stake over
the proposed road from Kootenay to the
coast. By their railway policy all over
Canada the governments are finding
that they must stand or fall. The man
on the street is in possession of a test by
which they are all gauged. He has
made up his mind that not only is the
state ownership oi transportation facilities the best policy in other respects,
best for the people antl hest for the progress of the country, but also that it is
the cheapest and nothing short of it will
ultimately satisfy him. Antl government will succeed government until he
gels what he wants.���Revelstoke Herald
When men who are boosting for
charter managers are forced to suppress
letters forwarded to them fnr public circulation they have a very weak case.
This is what happened at the recent
meeting in Vancouver, when E. V. Bodwell and his string of orators were endeavoring to mislead Vancouverites into
the belief that iu return for a subsidy of
$1,300,000 the promoters of the V. V. &
E. would give the people of the province
the advantage of railway competition
from the Coast to Kootenay. Among
those who were invited to speak at the
meeting was Joseph Martin, leader of
the Opposition. Mr. Martin declined
the invitation to speak, but he forwarded a letter outlining the railway policy
of the Opposition, in which he stated
thai the only way competition could be
secured was by government ownership.
This was not calculated to advance tbe
cause of the men who sought to secure a
fitt subsidy, so these spell-bpiders held
a council of war and decided to suppress
the letter. This has called forth a protest from Fighting Joe, and when the
Vancouver resolutions reach the legislature he may have something to say
concerning tbe boosters and their
met buds.���Tribune.

The increased production of gold is
setting some timid people to worrying
about the possibility of a gohl dollar being less than one hundred cents. So
long as the mints of the great commercial nations remain open to the free
coinage of gold there will be no change
in the measure of value. While supply
and demand fixes the price, artificial
quantity of gold, and stamp it as a
measure of value, it will not full below
tbe measure fixed. The Mining Reporter of Denver says:
'��� Back of all other explanations, tbe
real reason why gold became worth

to the Bank of England by the English
parliament, and which  made it at the
Mining and morals are more nearly
related than at first thought may be
supposed, says tlie Mining and Engineering Review. Bad morals have done more
to bring the business of mining into bad
repute than any other one thing. Dishonest promoters, fraudulent companies
and conscienceless management have
ever been tbe waste of paid in stock,
the wrecking of companies, anil the discouraging of confiding public.
While some have forged jijbair way to
financial success by taking advantage of
another's disadvantage and misfortune,
tbe successful dishonest man is not common. In mining, as in ull legitimate
enterprises, honesty is the best policy.
When tbe public can feel sure that
their money will go into honest bands
and the mine management is strictly
honest, antl conducted on strict business
principals, then' will be no lack of funds
fur developing purposes.
And yet after all that can he said, perhaps there is about the mining business
itself certain tendencies, temptations
and opportunities which break down integrity and destroy right principal, and
set aside ordinary business methods
such as attend few other spheres of commercial enterprise. There is, for instance,
the opportunity to get rich quick. This
grows into a kind of craze and fever
which soon assumes any kind of abuor-.
null condition to suit tbe taste of convenience. The race for millions, the
strife between tbe bonanza kings, iB but
the froth on the upper crust Heating on
a sea of seething contentions and angry
disturbance beneath.
The experience of the ages both as to
individuals and nations is that the slow
path to wealth is the sure road. Specially do we seem to need the slow process of obtainment in order to know bow
to retain a fortune. Tbe discovery of
certain rich mines, or the surprise value
of some claim discovered by some poor
grub-staker startles the world by jumping the possessor out of poverty into
fortune, without the drill of knowing
how to use what is suddenly received.
Some such exchange of circumstance
sets a thousand men who are doing well
enough in the ordinary sense of the
word, wild with a desire to do the same
thing. So away they rush for Cape
Nome, or some otherwheres, only to
learn in the school of experience that
such finds as a rule belong only to those
who bave made a business of prospecting, and that they tlo not know pay dirt,
or ore bearing rock when they see it,
much less do tbey know anything about
prospecting. As a result a hundred men
return home again poorer in pocket than
when they left home, with the consequent loss of position, time and resultant
discouragement, and perhaps broken
health for all time to come In accounting for this gold craze it ia almost wholly
due to tbe latent desire to get rich quick,
to reap the reward of labor without labor,
to come to possession of wealth without
rendering a proper equivalent.
It may be further considered that,
mining furnishes opportunities tor the
unscrupulous men that are perhaps
greater than in almost any other kind of
business. As a rule, the common people
do not know much about mining like
they do about the ordinary and more
general lines of trade and commercial
enterprises and various callings. What
does the stockholder in New York, who
perhaps has never been further west
than Chicago, know about what is being
done with his $10,000 worth of stock?
Even if on theground, he Is at the mercy of
the manager. From tbe man with the pick
and shovel all the way through to his
check from tbe bank, he is at the mercy
of others. A dishonest miner can carry
away in his pocket as he goes home from
his day's work a whole fortune in a short
length of time if allowed bo to do. In a
thousand ways may the stockholder be
We mention these things to make
apparent the growing need there iH for
the advocacy of a high grude of moralB
applied tu this whole business of mining.
More and more it is apparent that a
company honestly formed, wisely managed and honestly and intelligently
pushed as an enterprise, is the winner.
There is a demand that the stockholders
be put in possession of tbe necessary
facts concerning the operations of the
company. The honest company will
not hide expenses under cover of some
delusive prospect.
We are glad to note that all the better
reliable companies are coming more and
more to recognize these conditions and
take painH to put the people interested
in possession of all the interests they
hold in common. It is a right move in
the improvement of morals in mining.

Wednesday evening in the Auditorium
the Ladies Aid of the Methodist church
furnished one of the best local entertainments yet given in Greenwood. The
performance opened with a march drill
by a number of young ladies, after
which Professor ICauffmann rendered
in excellent style a violin solo. Leila
McKenzie und Tillie Graham sang a
duet, which was well received by the
audience. The male double quartette
sang and received an encore. One of
the prettiest effects nf the entertainment
was the pantomime ".Nearer My (lod to
Thee" by Misses Hawkins, McEntire,
Evans and McCreath. Mr. W. (I.
Gaunce gave two readings in excellent
style. The feature of the evening's |>or-
formance was "Tennyson's Dream of
Fair Women," in which Mrs. Kay was
the reader. All the parts were well
taken, Mrs. E. B. Dill as Cleopatra, and
Miss Maggie Stooke, as Iphigenia, receiving the most praise lor the manner
in which the characters represented by j
them were handled.
