Of Mine Development in the
A Complete  Review of the Year's
Work,  Output  of the
Mines, Ete.
About twelve months ago the writer
prepared a review of facts and figures
relating to the mining industry of the
Boundary district, which review was incorporated in the first annual report of
the Greenwood board of trade. This
matter has just been revised and the
statistics brought up to date, so the time
is opportune to again publish particulars
of the progress the district has made.
In reviewing the prospects and condition of the mining industry of the
Boundary district it is necessary to direct
attention to several facts tending to show
that a comparison with the older and
better developed mining districts would
not be fair to the former unless due allowance were made for the attendant
circumstances .unfavorable to it. The
lack of railway transportation facilities
prior to last year involved heavy and almost prohibitory freight charges on
machinery, plant, material and mine
stores. Power plants in use at its mines
are, except in four or five instances, consequently of comparatively small capacity and development work has necessarily been slow, the more so since the
data necessary for the advantageous
working of the mines can not be so
speedily obtained where big bodies of
generally low grade ore have to be opened up. Then whilst the branch railway
lines to several of the principal mines
bave been completed, the smelter at
Greenwood has only lately been put in
operation. It has though proved a distinct success, as, too, has that at Grand
Forks. The enlargement of the treatment capacity of the latter is now in
progress, and a copper converter is to
be added as well as new furnaces. Further, the district nas not yet, except in a
few instances, had the benefit uf the ex
penditure of 8nv considerable amount of
outside capital. So it has resulted that,
with only a limited amount of capita
available, actual mining operations have
been much restricted, whilst the previous absence of suitable transportation
and smelting facilities greatly retarded
progress. The prospects for early improvement are, however, very encouraging. With transportation and ore
reduction needs largely provided for,
several of the mines settled dow n upon
a producing basis and so encouraging
the further expenditure of capital for
their adequate equipment and more extensive operation, the contemplated
early resumption of work on properties
that have been closed down and the
general local experience, that values improve with depth, the outlook is becoming increasingly satisfactory.
Within a radius of about eight miles
of Greenwood there are a dozen mining
camps, in each of which numerous
mineral claims have been located. Of
these camps there arc five that, as a result of the comparatively large amount
of development work done in them,have
come into prominence. These are Dead-
wood, Greenwood (also known as Phoenix), Summit, Wellington and Central
(also known as White's) camps. Most
of the ore shipped from the district
mines has so far been the product of the
three first named camps, Greenwood
camp having a long lead in this connection, with Summit camp next and Dead-
wood camp third on the list. The
positions of the latter two are, however,
likely to soon be reversed, for the daily
output of Deadwootl camp is now more
than twice as large as that of Summit
camp. Wellington and Central camps
have both ceased shipping for the time,
nor does it appear as if they will again
send out any considerable quantity of
ore for some time to come. With the
single exception of the No. 7, in Central
camp, there does not seem to be any
property n either of these two eamps
likely to maintain regular shipments of
ore during the ensuing summer. On the
other hand it is very probable that before the snow Hies this year the output
of Greenwood camp alone will be larger
than   the  present  total  tonnage of the
whole of the Rossland mines, and that
botli Deadwood and Summit camps will
respectively increase their output.
At present the only producing mine in
Deadwood camp is the Mother Lode.
The Morrison bids fair ere long to join
the comparatively few regular shippers
the district yet possesses, and possibly
the Crown Silver, of the Sunset group,
will do likewise before the close of the
current year. Other claims which have
been under development but which do
not yet give promise of adding very
much to the output of the camp are the
Ah There, Buckhorn, Greyhound, Great
Hopes, Marguerite and Sunset, all
classed as copper-gold properties. The
D. A. and Gold Bug, two of the Boundary Creek Mining and Milling company's claims, having narrow veins rich
in gold and silver, are two more claims
that have not yet come up to expectations. The following is a summary of
the chief development work done in this
camp to April III):

There are seven steam power plants in
Deadwood camp. The plant installed
at the Mother Lode in 1898 included two
& cross-
60-horse power boilers ; 18x24 Ingersoll-
afid incandescent lights, and a 25 horse
power Armington & Sims' engine to run
The Sunset plant includes two 80 horse
power boilers, half of a 20-drill duplex
air compressor, ten machine drills, one
large and one small hoisting engine,
safety cage, etc. The other plants in
this camp are smaller.
The ores here, as in Deadwood and
Summit camps, are principally chalcopyrite, carrying also values in gold
and silver. Some of the ore bodies are
of large extent and, judging by the experience gained in treating Mother Lode
ore, the general "run of mine" ore will
return a profit if a favorable freight and
treatment rate be obtained. The deepest
shaft in the camp is that on the Sunset
now down about 350 feet and still sinking. Arrangements are being made,
though, to deepen the Mother Lode shaft
to 500 feet. The Mother Lode ore body
has been proved by three crosscuts to be
at the 200-foot level about 90 feet in
width along a distance of quite 350 feet,
and the work in hand at the 300-foot
level, so far as it has gone, appears to
indicate that this comparatively large
width is maintained at this lower level.
A large vein of ore lias also been cut on
the Morrison. There are about 50 men
employed at the smelter and not less
than 200 more at the several mines of
the camp, to which a branch of the C.
P. R. has been extended.
This camp has had more development
work done in it to date than  anv other

duplex air compressors, eight hoisting
engines, nine pumps for various purposes, about 30 machine drills, an electric lighting engine and dynamo, and a
lot more machinery. A timber-framing
machine with wedge and spring saws
has been ordered, and a 40 or 45-drill

boiler, 4-drill air compressor, and three
machine drills. On the War Eagle are
a 80-hcrse power boiler, half of a 10-

Brooklyn and Stemwinder group have
three boilers, two.r>-drill aircompressors,
two steam hoists pumps, etc., and are
adding ball of a 2(l-drill Corliss air compressor, 10 machine drills, two 80-horse
power boilers, a 75-horse power hoisting
engine, and other plant.
The Old Ironsides No. 2 shaft, now
down 400 feet, is one of the deepest shafts
in tlie district. The Stemwinder shaft is
315 feet in depth. Spur railway lines
connect witli the Snowshoe, Brooklyn,
Stemwinder, Old Ironsides and Knob
Hill mines. Tlie Old Ironsides and
Knob Hill group are by far the biggest
shippers in the Boundary district and
there is little likelihood of the mines of
any other company coming any where
near them as regards output of ore,
especially after they shall have doubled
their present daily output of 620 tens,
which they are preparing to do, concurrently with the increase now being
made ill tlie treatment capacity of tlie
(iranby smelter at Grand Forks. These
mines have large anil comfortable bunk
and boarding houses for their men, besides a number of cottages for the
families nf married employees.
Summit camp also contains numerous
mineral locations. Prominent among
these is the B, C.   which   is considered
Branch lines connect this camp with
the C. P. R. main line at Eholt. There
are about 130 men employed in
Summit camp, which is eight miles
from Greenwood. North of Summit
camp about two miles is Pass creek,
along which some promising discoveries
of copper ore have been made.
fn this camp tnere are four properties
that have been worked, but all except
tbe Winnipeg are idle just now. These
are the Athelstan, Winnipeg, Golden

The Winnipeg is down 425 feet and the

drifts and crosscuts at several levels
down to the 300 foot, anil the Winnipeg
is now crosscutting at the 400-foot level.
Both mines are equipped with steam
boilers, hoists and pumps, air compressors, machine drills, etc. The Athelstan
also has a power plant, but of smaller
capacity. The country rock here is of a
tlark feldspathic nature, while some of
tbe principal ore bodies occur iu gabbro,
which appears in quite extensive areas
and in the ease of the Winnipeg vein the
enclosing rock is serpentine; this, however, is merely an altered gabbro The
ore in this camp is chiefly pyrrhotite
near the surface, but as depth is gained
it becomes silicious and carries higher
gold values.
In Central camp are several properties
considered very promising, These include tin- Mabel, Oro, Cornucopia and
the City of Paris and Majestic group.
The City of Paris lias shipped about 2,-
000 tuns of ore to the Granby smelter.
The two last named mines together gel
their power from the same plant, whicli
includes two 80-horse power boilers,
a 10-drill duplex air compressor, six

the Locomobile people received this letter from him, dated Automobile company of Southern California, Los Angeles :
"My Dear Mr. Moore:���We got here
yesterday after a very enjoyable run.
We stopped two days at Salinas, including a side run to Monterey; two
days at King City, waiting for gasoline;
three days at Pasa Rubles, because we
liked the place ; three days at Santa Barbara ; two days at Carpenteria, at Shepherd's, where, by tbe way, I should like
to have stayed longer, but hurried off
that I might see more of this beautiful
country. Our real running time was
not slow, and our repairs are hardly
worth mentioning. Dick is attending
to them now. The throttle valve leaked
and the plate on the steam chest. We
found no hill on this run to give the machine any trouble. The greatest bother
is caused by wind and sand. I have not
got to the second stage yet, excepting
with the chain. I should like to get a
chance at the man who made my chain.
A life sentence would not be long
enough. I have got one now that I
know will stand. We have no roads in
British Columbia as bad as those I have
just gone over, so I am not afraid of her
in my own country. I have run her now
934 miles! When does the second stage
begin?   Yours faithfully,
Ward Spinks."

this he the case there is a long campaign of education hefore the white
laborers of the coast before they can
hope for any retlress, as Premier Laurier
has intimated that no matter what report is received from the commission no
restriction will he placed upon Japanese
immigration. This means that witli respect to Japanese competition the white
laborers of the province are about ten
years behind as compared witli the progress they have made in respect to Chinese immigration or competition. Hut
if tlie Japanese continue to threaten
and the white wage-earners keep up
their agitation they will win out. It is
now generally conceded that the report
of the present commission will result in
the raising of the harrier against Chinese immigration and what has heen accomplished in the case of the Chinese
will he accomplished in the case of the
Japanese if their competition witli white
laborers assumes the same proportions.���Nelson Tribune.
of the premises, and with all requisite
heat, supplied by a Doric 14 stove, there
does not appear to be any good reason
to suppose that this industry will not
flourish in tlie future. It was too early
in the season, at the time the establishment was visited, for out-of-door operations to have been undertaken to any
extent, but there was one striking
feature noticeable, viz., the preparations
made for growing water-cress, for which
a dozen or more betls hail been prepared
and a stream of water was flowing over
them. All in nood time tlie trenched

The meeting of stockholders in the
Morrison mine Friday night of last
week, took the proper course in asking
to have a statement as to how money
had been expended, and what part of
the assessment had been devoted to
development of the mine. There can he
no reasonable objection to this and those
who are personally acquainted with tlie
managing director of the company have
every faith in Ids being able to give a
satisfactory explanation for every dollar
expended. The Morrison is one of the
most promising properties in the Boundary district. Tlie work so far has
proved a very large body of ore, equal in
value to any of the other Deadwood
camp properties, anil within a year tlie
mine should be shipping at least 20(1
tons of ore per day if it is properly
handled. So far no fault can be found
with the development work done, but

In Camp McKinney���Development Done.
In the Province���Its History and Locators���Values Obtained.
From the Mine.
The following information regarding
the Cariboo mine at Camp McKinney is
taken from an article on "The Auriferous Quartz deposits of Southern British
Columbia," appearing in tlie current
month'B issue of the British Columbia
Mining Record:
The first claims of any importance
that appear upon the records are the
Cariboo and Amelia, located in the district now known as Camp McKinney.
The former claim was recorded on May
3rd, 1887, by A. McKinney and F. Rice;
the latter on the same day by W. J.
Burnham andG. LeFerve. The Okanagan, Alice and Emma, adjoining, were
recorded on May 9th, in the same year.
On April 29, 1888, McKinney and Rice
sold the Cariboo claim for $50,000 to
James Monagban, who also, about tbe
same time, acquired an interest in the
Amelia. The lirst assessment of work
on the Cariboo was recorded October 27,
The opening up of the vein on whicli
these claims were placed was slow,
mainly on account of the lack of capital,
but also because of the inacessibility of
the district at that time. In the report of
the minister of mines for 1892 it is stated
that "nothing more than assessment
work has been done in this camp during
the season���owners are awaiting the
construction of a wagon roatl across the
mountain to Kettle river, when machinery can be brought into the camp
and work be commenced at once." The
same authority, in 1893 report, says.
At this camp about $1,000 have been expended in sinking an air shaft til feet
deep, to tap the tunnel on the Cariboo,
by James Monaghan & Co., of Spokane,
and it ia reported they intend bringing
in a mill to work their property." The
mill was built shortly afterwards and
the first shipment of bullion took place
in April, 1894. Since that time the
Cariboo has been a regular pioducer.
The altitude of the Cariboo mine is
about 4.000 feet. It is tbe oldest mine
yielding auriferous quartz in the province. The country rock is an altered
argillite. The vein has varied in width
from 12 to 9(1 inches, the average lieing
about SO inches. The base metal
minerals accompanying the quartz were
pyrite, galena and blende. P.ior to 1897
they formed about 2'.. per cent by
weight, of the total contents of the vein.
Since then they have increased as the
mine has been deepened. In 18fiH they
were 3.4 and in 1899 4.8 per cent.
About 90 per cent of the vein was quartz,
the remainder being inclusions of country rock. The sulphides of the base
metals were in tbe following proportions: Pyrite, 10; blende, 2; galena,
1. The gold occurs partly in the quartz
and partly tn the base metal sulphides;
15,915 tons of ore yielded by amalgamation 17,751 ounces of bullion, of an average fineness of 1127 gold and 3114 silver.
The concentrates, as shipped, gave:
Gold, average.3.72 ounces per ton (variations 3.04 to 4.09), and silver, average
4.89 ounces per ton (variations 3.9 to
0.2 ). iron 35 percent, zinc 10 per cent,
and silica 9 per cent, or, per ton of ore,
gold, .093 and silver, 12 ounces, per ton.
The loss in tailings would probably be
about 13 ounces of .13 ounces of gold
and 10 ounces of silver per ton. No
account was kept of the value of the
tailings, so that it is impossible to give
precise figures. The value of the ore
obtained for some time was:
(tiilil Silver
ounces otiut-es
per ton   per ton
Amalgamahlu    1199        ,40
In concentrates 093       .12
In tailings    ,1:10        .111
Total 922 .88
The gold associated with the base
metal minerals is largely free. The base
metal minerals are distributed through
the quartz in more or less regultr bands
parallel to the walls of the vein, A little coarse gold has been met with. Asa
rule there is a well defined and regular
line of separation between the vein matter and tbe country rock, but in places
the former extends into the latter for
several feet, either as simple branches
or as complex reticulations.
There is a 20-stamp mill on the mine.
Prior to October last, 1898, only 10
stains had been erected. The output
for 1898 was 7,530 tons and antl for 1899,
12,070 [tons. The ore is amalgamated
and concentrated, the concentrates being shipped to the smelter. Dividends
were paid by the old company prior to
June, 1897, which aggregated $188,905;
total paid to date is $470,087. The mine
has heen worked continuously from 1894
to the present time.
The raise from what is known as the
railway tunnel on the Snowshoe, in
Greenwood camp, has met the shaft
commenced last, month with tlie object
of completing this provision for better
ventilation in the tunnel and its connecting workings, which have opened
up a big body of ore. Early this week a
platform was constructed on which to
dump the ore for the greater convenience
in loading it for shipment. It is intended to send to the smelter at (ireenwood the ore taken out in continuing exploratory work by drifts, crosscuts, etc.,
foom the tunnel. The managing director,
Anthony J. McMillan, has not yet returned from KiiL'laml. but it is probable
that he will be hack next month. When
he does again visit the mine he will find
that the excellent showing it was making when he was last here has been considerably improved upon, further development work having opened up much
more ore.
Some nice looking copper ore has
lately been met with in the shaft that is
being sunk on the Rawhide, in Greenwood camp. This claim is owned by
the Dominion Copper company, of Toronto, whicli is also developing the
Brooklyn and the Idaho, in the same
camp. A crosscut tunnel was last year
run 400 feet into the hill on which the
Rawhide is located, and now a shaft is
being put down to connect with this
tunnel, Tbe shaft is now between 70
and 80 feet in depth and it will have to
be sunk more than 100 feet deeper before it will reach the tunnel level.
The mayor and Aldermen Caulfield,
Uoss, Sutherland and Sullivan were
present at Monday night's meeting of
The matter of hotel and saloon licenses
was brought up by Alderman Caulfield.
He said that licenses should be granted,
to saloons.
Alderman Ross suggested that license
commissioners should be asked to recommend a license bylaw to the city.
Alderman Caulfield brought up the
tramway question, and thought something should be done towards its construction. Alderman Ross suggested
that Phoenix should be asked to co
operate with Greenwood. The city
solicitor was instructed to give an
opinion on question of floating debentures;
A petition was presented asking for a

(if tin- second class, the nre bodies are
large and give good copper values with
some gold.
These are situate in the immediate
vicinity nf Greenwood. Narrow veins of
ore, rich in gold anil silver, are the chief
characteristics of these camps. Between
15(1 anil 2(H) tmis, in nil, of high grade
ore have been shipped from Providence,
Strath more Last Chance and Skylark
claims, the values returned lii-iiif: generally comparatively liigh. The Last
Chance is equipped with a steam power
smith's damp.
In Smith's camp quartz tires prevail,
values   being  in   guhl   anil silver.    The
Republic group of four claims has had
the most development work done on it
in this camp, this consisting of HIT feel
of sinking and raising anil 3K0 feet of
drifting antl crosscutting. The Boundary Falls and neighboring claims, occasionally show free gold. The American Boy, Ruby and Golconda group, the
last named having arsenical iron and
copper ores,are other well known claims.
The ores in this camp occur in veins
from one foot to five feet in width, giving
gold values, and in some cases, high silver values.
Copper camp has immense surface
showings of copper ore, but as yet only a
very limited amount of development
work has been done in this camp, the
prinefpal claims in whicli are the Big
Copper and King Solomon. Then' is a
small steam power plant on the latter
claim. The copper deposits here occur
in contact with lime antl porphyry and
show large surface outcrops of iron
oxide ired hematite) antl quartz. In
some cases native copper, cuprite ami
copper glance are distributed throughout
this capping, more or less uniformly.
Some excellent copper values are obtained in this camp.
Long Lake camp contains chiefly gold-
quart:; ores in which tellurides of gohl
occur. The Jewel and Denero Grande
are adjoining claims, operated by the
same company, which has done the
most development work in this camp.
The Jewel shaft is down 348 feet. This
mine is equipped with two boilers, together 75-horse power, a 4-drill straight
line air com pressor, three machine drills,
steam hoist, pumps, etc, A stamp mill
and cyaniding plant will probably be
installed during the present year. Both
the Jewel group and the Ethiopia have
been acquired hy Kuglish companies.
The development work done in Long
Lake camp includes the following:

Seven miles north of Greenwood, up
Boundary creek, is Kimberly camp
Numerous claims have been located
here, but as yet not much development
has been done. The surface showings
are good, hut values appear to be low, so
capital has not been attracted to these
claims. The ore is heavy sulphides,
both copper and iron. In Graham's
camp, near Midway, there an- outcrops
of as nice looking copper ore as has been
found on the surface any where in the
district. Some 500 to000 feet of tunel-
ling have been done, hut this work has
not proved sufficient to determine
whether or not the ore goes down. In
West Copper camp, nine miles northwest of Greenwood, among many claims
located are some that with development
should prove valuable. The ores are reported to be arsenical iron pvrites, giving assays iu gold tip to ifliii, per ton.
The   Carmi,   Sally, Washington and
Idaho are the best known of the numbers of locations made on the West
Fork of Kettle, river ami its tributary
creeks. Of these tbe Carmi is the only
one that has sent, out much ore. Last
winter a quantity, variously staled at
from 660 to 1,11)0 tons, was hauled nearly
twenty miles over a rough sleigh road
and thence some 30 miles far!her by
wagon to Midway, whence it. was sent
by rail to the (ireenwood smelter. A
trial carload was taken out at the Sally
as well. Two shafts, the deeper ill) feet,
have been sunk on the Carmi and 220
feet of drifting and crosscuttiug have
also been done. The plant at this claim,
taken in under dillieiiltieH, consists of n
small upright boiler, a 60-horse power
horizontal return tubular boiler, a 6x8
link-motion hoist, a sinking pump and
a machine drill. On the Washington
and Idaho are a 12-horse power upright
sectional boiler, anil a 5x6 hoist, which
was months on the way before it reached
its outlying destination. The only underground development work tlone on
this group is a shaft Hunk 100 feel.whilst
230 feet of tunnelling have been done on

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

both Rendell and Carmi are now active
competitors and it is likely thai   one  ol
these two will become the principal
town iii thai locality,
There are several camps on creeks
running into the main Kettle river
above Hock creek, hut practically no
work other than assessments is being
done iu them at present. These include
Douglas and Atwood's Oro Finn group,
near Hock creek ; the Crown Point and
Barrett's groups, on James creek; Perkins' group near Westbridge���a town-
site at the confluence of the  West  Fork
with the main river ��� and camps mi
Canyon and other creeks above it. On
the Montana, Colorado, and Fourth of
July claims,  on   Canyon*    creek,  good
showings of copper-gold nn cur.   About
$2,000 have been spent here in develop
tnent. On the Silver Dollar, ami Itar-
nato claims, on Horseshoe mountain,
are big bodies of quartz and arsenical
iron carrying gold. The o. K and
Fletcher's groups have large ironcap
showings with streaks of high-grade
quartz and traces of telluride. A lot of
surface prospecting has been tlone on
the Mogul, Riverside, llackla and other
claims, but in no Instance sufficient to
prove permanence.
On the North Fork of Kettle river
there are several groups of claims distant in to 16 miles from Grand Forks.
The best, known of these are the Garth-
quake, (iolden Eagle, Volcanic. Pathfinder, and Little Bertha, oh the eastern
side of the river, and the Seattle, Humming Bird and Strawberry, on the western side of the river.   The Humming
Bird   is   reported   to   have   shipped   300
tuns of ore to the smelter, the Golden
Eagle has sent aboul 120 tons and the
Little Bertha and Strawberry acarload
each. The Humming Bird has 400 to
500 feet of crosscutting and drifting.
On the Pathfinder there are two shafts,
135 and 125 feel in depth respectively,
and about 700 feet of crosscutting and
drifting. Ii is slated that there are
three main ore bodies on the Pathfinder
of a somewhat 'rregular character.
partially developed by these workings,
and that these ore bodies are large
masses of low grade pyrrhotite, carrying
gold, silver and copper. The power
plant on this property consists of a 50-
horse power boiler, (ixH hoisting engine,
pumps, etc. There is, besides, a small
power plant on the Golden Eagle.
I'p the East Pork of the North Fork
there is a very promising country known
as Franklin camp, which for size of ore
bodies, so far as shown by the very
limited amount o? work done,and specimen assay values compares very favorably with what was known  of  the older
camps at a similarly early stage. A
trail was cut out last year to connect
with the wagon road ftom Grand Forks,
but the construction of a wagon road is
an urgent necessity for the getting in of
mine supplies and machinery, otherwise the mineral resources of this camp
must remain undeveloped. A sum of
money has been placed on the estimates
for this road, .Numerous mineral claims
have been located here, and of these the
hest known at the present time are tlie
Banner, McKinley, Gloster and Polartl.

It is stated thatGooderham and Black-
stock, of Toronto, who some time since
advanced money to relieve the Fairview
corporation from pressing financial embarrassment and obtained an option on
a controlling interest in that company,
have decided to take up tlie option and
to continue the development of some of
the mineral claims uwned by the corporation. The investors named have
been doing development work on the
property during several months past, it
is now stated with satisfactory results.
If this report prove true the people of
Fairview are to be congratulated upon
the improved prospects for the mining
industry in that locality and the consequent better outlook for their town.
Nicholas J. Tregear, who for 12 months
past has been superintendent of the
Winnipeg mine, has resigned his position
with the intention of leaving British
Columbia. He purposes first taking his
family to Montana and then having a
look around the mining districts of
Idaho. During his five or six years'
stay in this province he has done good
work, first at the Le Roi, Rossland, of
of which mine he was superintendent
during its days of steady dividend paying, and more recently at the Winnipeg.
He leaves the latter mine with its more
recent workings in plenty of ore, after
having rescued it from the stranded
condition in which it was when he assumed charge of it.
At the Sunset, in Deadwood camp,
the contract for sinking the main shaft
to the 400-foot level is completed and
the management has now under consideration the question of running a
crosscut at that depth to cut the ledge.
It has been decided to make three surface openings in ore, two on tho Sunset
and one on tbe Crown Silver, aud to
ship ore from these quarries. Another
means of development to be adopted is
to run a tunnel right through the hill on
which the big outcrop on the Sunset occurs, at a level above the railway, which
passes along the side nfthehill. Manager
Johns expects to soon have the pleasure
of shipping ore regularly from the Sunset group. 	
The principal work done at the
Mother Lode mine during the past week
was ore stoping. The stopes at both
200 and 300-foot levels are yielding a lot,
of ore, which is being supplemented by
by that from Nos. 1 and 2 quarries, and
from the quarry on tlie Primrose, these
together contributing about 150 tons
daily to the output of the mine, which
is between 350 and 400 tons of smelting
ore. Most of the construction .vork
that has been in hand during several
months past, is now completed. The
latest addition to the mine buildings is
a new blacksmith's shop.
The shaft on the Maple Leaf, one of
the Rathmllen company's group of
claims, near Eholt, is being uuwatered,
prior to again prosecuting development
on this property. The underground
work already dune on the Maple Leaf
consists of 225 feet of sinking and raising and about 450 feet, of crosscutting
and drifting. There is a power plant on
the property, including a35-horse power
upright boiler, 10x14 straight line Rand
air compressor, 28x10 air receiver, two
8Ji Little Giant tlrillB, (1x8 reversible
hoisting engine, No. 5 Cameron sinking
pump, and other appliances.
A Grand Forks dispatch to the Rossland Miner, under date May 9. stated
that "prospecting with a diamond drill
in the B. C. mine, Summit camp, has
resulted in the discovery of some hitherto unexpected ore bodies in the lower
levels, thus largely increasing the value
of the property." This report appears
to be premature, for enquiries made by
the Miner office have failed to verify the
reported discovery.
The basement of the Granby bunk
house at Phoenix is being arranged for
use as a dining hall for mine employes
of the Miner-Graves syndicate. In the
present dining room there is seat room
fur 88 persons at one and the same time,
although twice that number can be
boarded without difficulty, since the
men do not all put in an appearance at
the same time. The new dining room
will have seat room for 180, so that there
will be amole accommodation for a large
Ironsides hotel, and besides cottages fi
married employes having their  families
with them.
The crosscut at the lowest level uf the
R. Bell, in Summit camp, has run into
rock of a different nature to that previously passed through and Manager
Hanly is confident that this work is now
close to the ore budy he is driving to
Operations have been resumed at the
Humming Bird mine, nn tlie North
Furk of Kettle river. Six men are now
at work there and finall shipments of
ore are being made regularly tn the
(iranby company's smelter.
A report has been received from Keremeos to the effect that a very promising
discovery of cupper sulphide ore has
been made on the Mount Zion claim,
situate about six miles up Keremeos
Monday evening last Geo. D. Bryce,
the master mechanic of the Mother
Lode, was presented with an address
and a gold watch by the mechanical
staff of the mine. The presentation took
place in the minediningroom. Frederic
Keffer, general manager of the British
Columbia Copper cumpany, in the course
of a few complimentary remarks referring
to the fact that cluse application to duty
over a comparatively long period had
brought about the necessity for Mr.
Bryce tu recuperate, likened the human
budy tu steam machinery such as those
present were familiar with. The
stomach was the furnace and boiler
with the food as fuel to generate steam
���the blood���which it sent to the engine���the heart���and this in turn sent
it all nver the system, including the
brain where were the little wheels that
played so important a part in the
mechanism. When, through lung use,
the builer tubes gut clogged with scale
and the piston roils did not work with
ease, the little wdieels naturally failed
to do their wurk effectively. Then there
was but nne remedy���the tubes had tn
be cleaned nut and the whule machine
repaired and renewed. Following up
this simile they found that Mr. Bryce
had come tu the conclusion tnat only at
Portland could be obtained the right
kind uf compound to clean out his tubes
and there too, was the best repair shop
for his mechanism.
The following address was read
and presentation made by John A Macdonald :
To Geo. D. Bryce, Est)., Mother Lode Mine, B.C.,
May 6.1901:
Sin:���As a slight token of our esteem
and tlie high regard in whicli you are
held by the mechanical staff of the
Mother Lode mine, the urbane and
courteous demeanor exhibited by you to
all with whom vou have been brought
into contact, the conscientiousness and
integrity which have characterized all
your actions while performing the duties
of master mechanic fur the Mother Lode
mine, both towartl the cumpany and
the men under yuu.
"We beg your acceptance of this address and the accompanying gold watch,
and we pray that you may lung be
spared to enjoy the confidence of those
with whom yon may be brought into
contact wherever your lot may be cast
in as high a degree as that in which you
are held by the people of the Mother
Lode mine, but more especially of the
mechanical staff.
"John A. Macdonald,
"On behalf uf mechanical staff."
Mr. Bryce  replied   briefly, expressing
his sorrow at being compelled  to  leave,
and tbankiiiL' those present for their expression of friendship.
The watch was a 21-jewel Elgin inuve-
ment with 14-carat solid gold case.
After the address and reply, refreshments were served ami speeches were
made by Messrs. Frederic Keffer, John
A. Macdonald, John A. Crawford, the

certain lines of produce, particularly
potatoes, for the growth of which there
appears to be a considerable area of

At Eholt's Ranch in the Early
And   Caused   a   General Social Upheaval   in   the   Community.
One of the principal characteristics of
a frontier mining town is that all trails
lead to the saloon. A few years ago this
was the case down at Eholt's ranch.
Then there were not many women folk
at Eholt's, but enough to form a women's club, the object of which was to
provide entertainments occasionally, in
order that the winter might pass more
Most of the boys attended the entertainments, and helped to eat cake, drink
coffee, play progressive euchre and have
a good time generally. This went on
during the greater part of the winter,
each succeeding week bringing its quota
01' entertainments, and cake, and coffee,
and progressive euchre. One morning
the startling neiis was whispered around
that the Ladies' club had ceased to exist,
whether by spontaneous combustion or
otherwise bad not been ascertained. As
the matter was one which concerned the
women alone, the boys did not make
any enquiries as to the cause of the collapse, but called a meeting at Clark &
Rickards' cabin, with the object ol
passing resolutions of thanks to the
Ladies' club for the many pleasant evenings' entertainment. The object of that
meeting was never fulfilled. There happened to be either Pi persons or 13 of
something else at tin.'meeting, the writer
only remembering that there was a 13
club formed that evening.
The club grew and prospered, until it
numbered members���either active or
honorary���in every part of the district.
Eholt's ranch became famous on account of the entertainments given by
the club. The ranch was divided into
lots as a result of the popularity of
these social reunions; young men from
across the ocean came, pronounced them
awfully jolly, beastly decent, and nearly
equal to such affairs "at home" j justices of the peace said they were legal
and also hilarious; hotel men from Rossland and (irand Forks said, from the appearance of the residents, they could not
have thought such entertainments possible ; men who had never sung before,
made the welkin ring with their joyous
melodies; and the fame of the Tlnir-
teeners was sung from the Columbia
river to the Provincial Constable range
on Trout creek.
In an evil moment an athletic club
was broached. Whether this was tlie
thin edge of the temperance wave deponent sayeth not, but the athletic club
was formed and the 13 club "was bust."
About this time four students from a
theological college or seminary arrived
at Eholt's They had several new
brands of civilization under their hats,
and a well-developed temperance wave
with gas attachment.
The wave struck and struck almighty
hard. Eholt was renamed, roads were
run across trails leading to and from the
principal place of business, streets were
made to conform to the surveyor's
peculiar ideas, an irrigating ditch was
put. in to supply the demands of the
wave, buildings sprung up, the athletic
club went "bust," the students went
prospecting, and since then no effort has
been made to arouse the calm, sweet
restfulness of Eholt's ranch.
The town of  Rendell is just booming.
The noise of hammer and  saw  reminds
one of the early days in (ireenwood.
Bunting & Deffipsie, the contractors,

P. Pickard, the assayer, arrived here
this week and has decided to locate here.
He has given a contract for the erection
of an assay ollice, Ilix24 feet,  one story.
D.   Smith,  of   Beaverton,  expects   toj
put  up an  hotel in Rendell in the near
future,  having come to the conclusion
that it does not pay to try and  do  business in the suburbs.
The townsite company have a crew of
men busy clearing the townsite.
As soon as tin- contractors are through
with the townsite block, they start, on
the printing ollice block, a building
20x40, the future home of the West
Fork News.
Prospectors are beginning to arrive,
and many new locations are being made.
Owing to the rapid raise in the river
many are coming in over tlie high
water trail

Rendell and Beaverton journeyed to
