BOUNDARY'S RICHES
Jay P. Graves' Opinion of the
District.
Summer Will Bring Unparalleled Activity���Final Payment on the Brit-
tania Group Made,
In an interview Mr. Jay P. Graves
says: "The Boundary country is the
region which will witness the next great
activity in mining, an activity that
promises to attract world-wide atten-
tentlon, Rossland and the Slocan have
enjoyed a period of prosperity ; Republic, Wash, and the Buffalo Hump, Idaho, too, have bad theirs. The result of
the treatment of ores at the Boundary
smelters will create an unparalleled demand for Boundary properties and
shares by outside investors. Such a
movement���one that will he historicu
is inevitable, and will come late this
summer or in the early fall."
bave contracted for $8 a foot. Years
ago a rich New Yorker put $800,000 into
a mine enterprise to make a position for
a dissipated son whom he sent out west
to reform. The first tiling the young
man did was to buy a barrel of old Ken
tucky whisky, the next thing was to buy
a lixiviation' works in a camp where the
ores average DO per cent lead and 20
ounces of silver. The smokestack is all
that is left of that $800,000. Fortunately the boy died young. In a word, if
you want to build a frame house you
employ a carpenter; if it is a brick
house you get a mason ; if you have a
$10 lawsuit you get an attorney; if you
are sick you send for a doctor. But
many investors think that anything that
wears pants is good enough to run a
mine or hold office.

Mining at the Coast.
The Brittania Copper Syndicate, Ltd.,
made their final payment on April ll)
on the Brittania group, by which they
secure seven-tenths of these properties,
situated on Howe sound. Howard Walters, the manager, states that probably
this summer one of the largest smelters
in the world will be built, either on the
property or in the vicinity of Vancouver,
to handle the ore. The bond was taken
up two weeks before it was due.
Why Many Mines Fail.
Colorado has scored a great many successes iu mining in the last ten years
hut truth compels the admission that iu
the last twenty years the failures involving the loss of millions of dollars far
outnumbered the successes, says a Colorado exchange. In connection with
these facts there is one point that would
he of great advantage if carefully considered by eastern investors. Look at
the big pay mines in Colorado today ;
who opened them, who owns them or
controls them? Four great mines of
Colorado, the Little Johnny, the Camp-
bird, the Portland nnd the Independence were all opened ami placed on   the
bonanza list by poor Colorado miners,
who had no money except what they
got out of the ground, hut they did
have experience and knew what to do
and how to do it. The average eastern
investor in mining thinks that a man
who has made a failure in every other
calling in life ought to he a mine manager. So you can travel through the
mountains and see monuments of folly,
and if you travel on foot you will have
plenty of time to count up tbecostof the
cost of the ruins you see and examine
into the merit of the properties. You
will generally find that the property is
all right and that there has been from
three to ten or perhaps 100 times
enough money fooled away on it to have
made a good paying proposition. The
failure has often stopped the entire development of what would otherwise
have been a flourishing mining camp.
You will generally find that the manager was a nice old man who had failed at
everything he had ever touched, that he
was a friend of the owners and that he
had a pull. Of course he did not know
a steam engine from a hydraulic ram.
He may have built a 100 horse power
mill which he tried to run with a 20
horse [lower engine, and drive drifts at
an expense of $100 a foot  that he  could

EHOLT.
j
A 'Mirer" Man Spent Last Saturday There,
and Tells What He Saw.
The Commercial hotel is undoubtedly
one of  the  best  in   tlie   Boundary  district.   It is completely furnished  from
roof to cellar.    Tlie dining room is laige
and commodious, ami Mrs. Kaiser looks
after the welfare of between 30 and 4u |
guests at each  meal.   The bar  is  well!
appointed and tlie smoking room is very i
cozy.    There are two  large  parlors   upstairs with a line  piano  in each,   One.
of   these   is   occasionally  used   for  a
meeting, or an informal, Old-time dance.
The   walls   are all   plastered  and  the j
floors boast of rich carpeting.    In short, |
as mine bust Kaiser jovially  remarked, !
"The Queen might come into my   house
and not be ashamed "
, Tlie opening up of the 11. C, Oro Denero. Rambler. Mountain View and
otlier mines in tbe vicinity has created
a considerable payroll in the camp,
which will increase as tbe mines develop, and will make Eholt one of the prin-;
ci hi' milling centres of tlie Boundary
district. It is also well situated as a
railway centre, being at lb�� junction  of
the Phoenix camp spur, the main line
to (ireenwood, and tl'.e B. ('. and Oro
Denero spurs. As mining development
advances Eholt must also advance and
become a populous and important mining and railway centre.
The Khnlt Trading Co. is holding its
own in good shape. The store is well
stocked with everything needful to .a
single man or a family, and well able to
meet larjie orders in the hardware line.
The ijtilet limes don't seem to have
much deterrent effect on I lie business
done there.
The Hotel Northern is the headquarters (or tbe commercial fraternity, its
genial proprietor, Mr. Munn, being
widely and favorably known. Kvery-
tlling in connection with tliis hotol is
comfortable and well appointed.
Messrs. McMaster A Black are reaping a financial reward for their successful efforts to make the Columbia a lirst-
class hotel. One is sure oi every comfort when stopping lliere.
It. J. Thompson has a stationery
stand where one can get one's pick of
leading papers, magazines anil mining
journals. He lias also a good sloci< of
tobaccos, cigars anil fruit.
Messrs. McKellar and Tighe are do
ing well at their livery stables. They
have first-class rigs mid any number of
good saddle horses.
The Miners' Exchange is doing well.

A dispatch of ihe 13th from Croton-on-
Iluilson, N Y., says: This was tlie
13th day of the strike of the 800 Italians
employed on tlie new Cornell dam and
quarries, and they signallized it by refusing to allow any one to work.

The Political Mlx-Up.
Mr. H C. Mackintosh, late governor
of the Northwest territories, an old retired conservative journalist and politician, who lias been through the political mill from lirst to last, has, apparently, consented In re-enter the arena, as
he is reported to have accepted the nomination by acclamation of tlie Rossland
conservative convention tlie other day.
Mr. Mackintosh had been up to this
time an avowed opponent of the party
lines movement in tlie present provincial crisis, as will bave been seen by tlie
thoughtful communication dealing with
the provincial political situation from
that gentleman printed fn this paper a
week or so ago. The question naturally
suggests itself, has Mr. Mackintosh
really abdicated his better judgment,
and like the Victoria Turnerites thrown
iu his fortunes at last with the party
lines conservatives. Another question
also suggests itself in this connection,
namely: How many platforms will tbe
unique combination try to get in on?
They will have three at least���the
Westminster platform, for the lower
mainland, a modification ol that wonderful document  for the interior, and
Turnerisin for the Island, or should we
say, Victoria? And it's ten to one if
Turnerism and Tupperism, judging
from various prima facie nnd internal
evidences, doesn't pretty seriously tincture and permeate the whole mixture.���

General White's Welcome Home.
The scene which  greeted General   Sir
George White when   Ihe  steamer   Dun-
vegan    Castle,     which   left  Capetown
March 28, reached Southampton   April
14, must have convinced him of the admiration of his countrymen for his gallant defense  of  Ladysmith during  the]
long   and   trying seine of that   place.
Prom early morning crowds collected by !
thousands iii the neighborhood of tlie!
docks.     The  buildings  in  tlie  vicinity
were gaily   decorated   with   bunting  iu \
honorof the. occasion, and all the public i
institutions   were   covered  with  flags.
The  harbor  presented  a  brilliant nnd
animated scene, the various vessels hav-
ing  dressed   ship,   and   the Dunvegau [
Castle's   berth  at    the    wharf  was  re- j
splendent with bunting and evergreens. 1
Lady White, mayor and members of the
corporation,   uniformed    soldiers    and
sailors,   and  .a   number   of    privileged
guests awaited tlie gallant defender of j
Ladysmith.    Sir George landed  at 2:30
p. in.
During tlie reading of the address the
huge crowds in the vicinity seized every occasion to hurrah, and the enthusiasm was indescribable. Hats, handkerchiefs, and flags were waved frantically and cheer followed cheer in endless succession.
General White was visibly moved at
the warmth of his reception. In acknowledging the address he referred
with admiration to his gallant garrison,
every one of whom, he said, "from General Hunter to tlie brave trumpeter,
had behaved magnificently."
Attacked by Taealos.
A despatch from Manilla, April   17th,
says:   Twelve hundredTagalosattacked
Cases, the battalion headquarters of tlie
Fortieth regiment at Cagayan, Island ol
Mindanao, on April the 7th. The Americans had 15 casualties, while the attacking force had 50 killed and 30 wounded
or taken prisoners.
The enemy, numbering 150 riflemen,
their commander being bolomen, archers
and mounted spearmen, swooped dowTi
in a howling mass at daylight, surprising and killing three of the sentries.
They swarmed the streets in small parties, some bringing scaling ladders, by
means of which they attempted to enter
houses.
The Americans tumbled out of their
barracks and formed in the plaza ami
the companies began sweeping the
town, the subsequent lighting lasting 20
minutes. Twelve of the wounded
Americans are now on hoard the hospital ship Relief. The enemy withdrew to
tlie mountain in great confusion.
St. Eocene Concentrator.
The St. Eugene concentrator started
up a few days ago. The Moyie Leader
says: "It. kept running steadily eacli
day during the week. It will be run iO
the daytime only until about May 1st,
when a night shift will be put on. The
mill is working to perfection, as is also
tbe tramway and otlier machinery connected with tlie mine. The mill, though
having a capacity of 250 tons, is only being run at the rate of 150 tons per day
for the present. But it will be increased
to its lull capacity as soon as the new
addition is finished."���Prospector.
Graves Smelter.
The roasting of ore preliminary to the
commencement of smelting operations,
was begun April 12th at the Granby
smelter. The event is an auspicious anil
noteworthy one in the history of the
Boundary country. The roast heap represented a shipment of $40 ore from the
City of Paris mine, controlled by the
Graves-Miner syndicate. The City ol
Paris is situated in Central camp.

Governor John Brough was once
matched against Corwin and in his
speech saitl:
"Gentleman, my honored opponent
himself, while he preaches advocacy of
home industry, has a carriage at home
which he got in England ; had it shipped
across the water to him. How is that
for supporting home industry and
labor?"
When Corwin came to the stand, he
made a great show of embarrassment.
He stammered and then  began  slowly:
"Well, gentlemen, you have heard
what my friend Mr. Brough has to say
about my carriage. I plead guilty to
the charge, and 1 have only two things
to say in my defense. The first is that
the carriage came to me from an English ancestor as an heirloom, and I had
Sto take it. Again, I have not used it for
even years, and it has been standing in
my bad: yard all that time, and the
chickens have converted it. into a roost.
Now, gentlemen," with a steady look at
Brough, "1 have nothing further to say
in my,defense, but 1 would like to know
how jrough knows anything  about  my
carriage if he has not been  visiting  my
henroost?"

Major Hay ford Thorold, second in
command of the Hist hatallion, Duke of
Wellington's regiment, tells a story of
hie experience in Matabeland in 189(1,
when sent to restore order iu a little
township called Gwelo, On arrival
there he found that the acting commandant, an ex-storekeeper, in a state border
ing on delirium tremens; so that he had
him locked up. The commandant however, managed to break out and make
his way to the telegraph ollice, whence
he dispatched the following wire:
"Chamberlain, London: Man here
named Thorold questions my sobriety.
Who is Thorold?    Wire at once to avert
bloodshed."
* #
He wondered when he heard them
them talking if something iu the news
of the day had escaped him.
"It was a terrible slaughter," said one
of them.
"Yes, indeed," returned the other.
"Such a sacrifice probably never has
been known before."
"They must have slashed right and
left. Justus described in the papers,"
went on the first.
"Yes, the adjective'terrific' so freely
used was certainly justified," added the
second.
"Pardon me," said the man who had
overheard; "has another battle been
fought in South Africa? I saw nothing
of it?"
"Battle?" repeated the one nearest
to him. "What do we know about battles? We had reference to the advertisement of a bargain sale we have just
been attending."
* *
A Canadian editor being asked if he
had ever seen a bald-headed woman,
replied: "No, we never did. Nor
have we ever seen a woman waltzing
around town in her shirt sleeves, with a
cigar between her teeth. We have
never seen a woman go fishing with a
bottle in her hip pocket, sit on damp
gro ind all day, and then go home drunk
at night. Nor have we overseen a woman yank off her coat and swear she
could lick any man in town. God bless
her I   She 'aint built that way."
# #
It was a mean, trick,  of  course,  and
someday  she  will doubtless get even
j wit him.
She saw  him  take a  piece of paper
i from his docket, carefully fold it up and
j put it iu an envelope and then place the
| envelope in one of the far corners of the
drawer of the library table.
"What's that?" she asked.
"Oh, nothing of any  consequence, "
i he replied.
Now, if lie had simply  thrown it care-
I lessly into the drawer she   would   luive
j thought nothing of it,  but  the  care   he
i took to put, it clear over in   the  far cor-
j ner antl the fact  that he seemed  ill   at
ease after he fonnd that his action had
been   observed   aroused  her   curiosity.
She wondered what it was, and she reasoned with herself that   he   bad   said   it
was "nothing   of   importance," so lie
would have no one but himself to blame
if she took a look at it.    She  was justified in  inferring from  his  words that
I there was no reason why she should not.
| And this is what she read scribbled  on
! a piece of paper:
"I'll bet you a new hat your curiosity
! will not permit you to let this alone "
It   was   a   terrible    predicament   in
i '
j which to place a woman.    How could
she claim the new  hat  without  giving
; herself away?"

"Confusion Worse Confounded."
The following is from the pen of J. L.
I.angslal'fe, a liberal, and  etlitor  of the
the Trout Lake Topic:
"Tala about 'confusion worse con'
founded' if it don't be the thing in the
liberal ranks from this out unless some
political Moses arises who Is ablt to weld
together the fragments, scattered abroad
by the conflicting elements of prejudice,
craven fear antl sell  interest   and   bring
tbelli to see that discord in the face of a |
menacing foe is bound to result in disas- ;
tennis defeat and   ignominious  oblivion
*   *   *   A pretty outfit they must have
been surely    They don't appear lo have j
had the grit, to come out flatly, either
against or for   party lines or  for Joe
Martin, btit broke up, leaving the matter in greater confusion   than   before.
Prom this time out we might as well  go j
in for the full amount, so bring on your
candidates.     Your  Cotton   men, your
labor men, vour capitalists,  vour Mar-,
tin  men  and  your conservatives.    The
liberals will distribute themselves among
you.    Someone is bound to go   in and it
matters    very    little     who     he    is   so
long as he   is  different   from   the  other
fellow,    If   we   are   going     lo   have   a
"crazy  quilt"   legislature  let  us   variegate  the colors  as  much   as   possible.
Just look at the liberals   of  British  Go-.
Iiimbia, are they not an edifying  sight'.'
Too deadly afraid to knock tl hip off
a conservative shoulder. Too much
afraid of Joe Martin 10 say you can't
lead us. If we had scanty respect l"r
Joe Martin before we make obeisance
to him now for he is evidently the solitary exception of manhood in our
ranks."
Camp McKinney,
The Cariboo is slated to be working iu
some of the richest ore yet. struck in the
bottom level of the mine. It. was found
east of the old workings and in th''
Okanogan claim. More than 60 men are
now employed ".t Ibis mine.
A strike is reported ul ihe lower end
of the Sailor. A paystreak of on- irom
ISO inches to four feul six inches in w idlh
is gald to glvo values ranging up to $011
per ton. The quartz is mineralized m Ith
galena and carries good values iu gold,
Three shifts of men are working on this
properly, which lies about northwest of
the Minnehaha end southwest of the
Cariboo
At the Waterloo a body of good ore is
being tlrifted on. Il is thoilghl licit
depth is all that is required to prove
this property a permanent mine.
The Mammoth, west of the Kureka,
also has a tine showing in Ihe tunnel,
probably at a depth of Kill fret from the
surface. A winze is being sunk, following tin- ore down.
A nice vein has, it is reported, been
struck 011 the Dayton. Work will probably be resumed soon on the Kamloops
on which there is sonic nice ore The
mill has been started on ihe Lemon
property on which ten men are new
working.
Messrs. A. McKay anil II. StepllGtl-
son lately struck a vein ol line ore on
the Sovereign, west of the Alma. The
ore shows coarse free gold and assays up
to ,'10.���Midway Advance.
Companies Incorporate.
The following companies have lately
been incorporated in the province:
McKonzles Bros., Vancouver, capital
$30,000; Methodist Recorder Printing
and Publishing company, of Victoria,
$10,0110: North Pork Lumber company,
of (ireenwood, capital $1011.00(1; Silver-
ton Water company, of Silverton, $:to,-
00(1; li. A. Dickson iMld I'. T. McCnll	
are applying for incorporation of the
Boundary Rapid Transit company, for
building a tramway from Cascade City
along the Kettle River valley to Grand
Forks, thence up the north fork of the
Kettle river 50 miles to Carson City,
with spurs to Phoenix. Greenwood and
Midway.
Canadian Mines Rank Highest.
That cen trnl Canadian mines are really
very superior lo the Transvaal mines
was shown in detail by p. II. Malcolm,
late president of the Johannesburg Din- :
mond Boring & Development company,
to the members of the central Canada
chamber of mines.
He said both Transvaal and Canadian
ores are free milling ones, but Hie  average   Canadian   is   worth   $11    per   ton
against $0 Ihe value of  Transvaal  ore.
Ontario reel's   or  dykes   outcrop   to   tlie
surface,     whereas    African     reel's   are,
reached only after mining down 2500 .to
4000 feet,    Water is abundant in Ontar- [
io, but being scarce in Africa is secured j
by very expensive dams.    Labor in  Ontario at the most is $1! a day,  while the j
Transvaal miner claims exactly thedotl- ;
hie, $u   Lake of the Wood- fold district
alone measures350 miles  by  loll miles!
against 50 miles by 7 miles, the dimensions ol  the Johannesburg  main   reef,
Tho Canadian   vein  of   ore  is  perhaps
somewhat smaller  than   the  Transvaal
ore which measures 10,U feet,  hut ill all
other i espects the Ontario gold  held  is j
decidedly superior.
Canadian mines and mining stocks
are not so well operated. The Canadian
stamp weighs 900 lbs., while the Transvaal one, weighs 1250 lbs. Canadian appliances are comparatively primitive.
Transvaal appliances are the newest
and most effective. -No Canadian mining slock is listed on the great exchanges
of iMir.pe, whereas the Transvaal mining stock are there active and strong.
Riches of South Africa.
The rapid development of Africa is due
lo the gold, iron, coal, and other mineral deposit. The Kimberly mines are located in British territory, jusl outside
ihe boundaries of ihe Orange Free
Stale, abolll 600 miles from Cape Town,
and supply !l!l per cent of the diamonds
of commerce. The existence of these
mini's was unknown prior lo 18117, ami
since their discovery $850,000,000 worth
of diamonds have been taken from them,
which after cutting were easily worth
double.
Equally wonderful are the Witwater
gold li 'Ids located in the South African
republic, better known as the Johannesburg mines, A lew years ago this
territory was worthless, and used only
as pasturage. (told was discovered
there in 1888, and the first year $50,000
was taken out. In 1SS.S the amount
$2,000.0(10, in 1889, $10,000,0(10, in ISO:?
over $'211,000,000, in 1805 over $10,000,-
ooo, and the last two years $55,000,000 a
year.
Bui more important than gold or diamond mines are the vast virgin coal
Hulds ofZullllaild and th" practically unlimited iron and lead mines of the other
parts of Africa, waiting untouched for
tbe pick of the while man.
The Interior Leads.
The interior led in the adoption nf
party lines and the const follows. This
is a sign ot a political revolution, which
will transfer the ascendency to the in-
tenor.

The Scavenger Censured for Not Carrying Out His Contract���Acting
Mayor Sutherland in the Chair.
The city council met on Tuesday
night, Acting Mayor Sutherland in the
chair, all the aldermen being present.
Letters were read from the. Winnipeg
Rubber Co. stating that they had made
a sight draft on the city for $502.80 for
supplies for the fire department; J, W.
Arbuckle, applying for position as driver
of the fire, team; Leonard Norris, stating that the annual fees for water right
were overdue, and asking for a remittance of $23. Report of fire chief was
received in which he recommended that
a street sprinkling cart be installed in
iu the city.
II. C. Shaw appeared before the council asking for a three months extention
of time for completion of the. tramway.
The question was referred to the city
solicitor.
The council decided that anyone
wanting water laid into huildings must
pay the expense themselves, the city
supplying the pipe to the sidewalk and
making the connections, The following
letter was read from R. L. Annit re
sampler:
Ghkknwood, B. ('.. April 17, 1900,
To tiik Municipal Corporation oktiik
City op Greenwood,
Gentlemen: Uunder date of April
second last, I submitted to the City of
(ireenwood, through itr council, a proposition concerning the removal and
erection of a public ore sampling plant
ill your city. The council took official
action upon the matter and returned a
counter offer somewhat modifying theof-
fer made to them by me. This action
was referred to me by the city clerk on
April lOdi, to which 1 replied, as you
will note by the communication addressed to you on the 17th.
In my proposition of April 2nd I duly
pointed out a lew of the salient points
which would determine the advantages
which might be derived by bringing an
enterprise such as the Slocan Ore Purchasing company proposes to start in
your city, Since that tune the matter
lias heen more fully presented to your
honorable hoard of trade, at which
meet ing several members of the city
council happened to he present. In addition to the explanations and arguments set. forth ut that meeting iu favor
of fostering such an enterprise, several
letters upon the subject have heen written by prominent mining men, which no
doubt have coine to your notice before
this time. 1, therefore, beg leave to
submit the following proposition for
your consideration:
If your corporation can see its way
clear to grant to my company a plot of
ground suitable for sampling purposes
such as may he required, and further
will grant to the Slocan Ore Purchasing
company a bonus of $5,000 to be paid to
'.he said company in the following manner, to-wit:
Three thousand dollars to be paitl by
your corporation to my company upon
the completion of said plant upon the
plot of ground hereafter to be selected,
and after the said plant lias been in continual operation lor twenty days. The
remaining $2,000 to be paid by the said
parties  when  20,000 tons of ore have
been purchased or sampled by the said
Slocan Ore  Purchasing company, this
offer being subject to the approval of the
electors of your city.   If  your corporation   find   that   this   enterprise would
; prove of immediate benefit to your city,
! I ask that you take such official steps as
| will recommend the support of this prop-
! osition to the  electors  of  your  city,  to
: whom  the same will have to be legally
! submitted for linal approval or disap-
: proval.    Respectfully submitted,
R. L. Ahmit,
for Slocan Ore Purchasing Co.
It was resolved that as a bonus for its
erection, the Slocan Ore Purchasing Co.
��� be paid 50 cents per ton for the first 10,-
(100 tons of ore put through the sampler.
The city clerk reported that the police
commisioners hail decided to cut down
! the police force by one man.
Acting .Ma\or Sutherland reported
that Dr. Jakes had examined the isolation hospital antl would report, next
night. He also reported that the scavenger's refuse yard was iii bad shape and
that the scavenger was not living up to
his contract. The clerk was instructed
: to advise the scavenger that unless his
contract, was properly carried out, ac-
! tion would be taken against his bondsmen.
The Clarendon company were granted
i leave to use three feet of  the   sidewalk
lor   steps   to   the   side   entrance    of
i their hotel, the same to be subject to re-
: nioval at any time deemed necessary  by
the council
SI, lilderman was appointed driver of
lire term in the place of|J,   Mitchell,  resigned.
Council then adjourned.
What Shaughnessy Says.
President Sliau^linesssy at tbe C.   P.
I R. directors' annual  meeting in  Montreal recently said:    "Apart from  some
! short   lilies   required   to  serve  growing
' communities in Manitoba anil the North-
. west territories, the directors do  not at
I present   contemplate   construction   involving an important expenditure of capital.''   This must mean that Midway is
to remain the terminus of the C.  &  \V.
railway for some lime, and that  we  are
to have no railroad built up the  Kettle
river,  or  through   the    Similkameen.
Have their surveys been nothing   but  a

WORK   COMMENCED
On the Tramway to Phoenix
ana Adjoining Camps.
Connection Will Be Made With an
American Road at the International Boundary Line.
Smith Curtis are the moving spirits, and
the lost, horse, which is the third claim
on the large fracture from the Sunset,
and is being worked by Robert Stevenson personally.���13. C. Record, of London, England.
On Saturday last the preliminary survey for the Greenwood-Phoenix tramway was begun. This large enterprise
was promoted by local men, anil the
charter was granted by the provincial
government only a few weeks ago. The
approximate cost of the line to Phoenix
IB. placed at about $150,000 Hut by the
time the system is completed the cost
will ligure up to about half a million.
To get a franchise from the city of
Greenwood for the installation of the
electric light plant, the promoters were
obliged to deposit a check for $5000 as a
guarantee that they would also build
the tramway if they were successful in
obtaining a charter from the government. The scheme is backed by prominent American railroad men, anil will
be pushed forward to a rapid completion.
History of the Similkameen.
The Similkameen, is populated  with
miners from Cariboo, California, Oregon,
Idaho and other old milling sections,
who have been backward and forward
in the country during I he last 40 years,
antl who know the difference between
mineralized rock and pay ore. Some of
the claims there have been located antl
relocated during a score of years, and in
this way practically no development
work has been done. In 1887 a large
freshet stopped work on Granite Creek,
on the placer mines there, antl many of
the miners went out prospecting for lode
mines At this time Copper mountain
was discovered. The Indians knew of it
before. In 1HS8, R, A. Brown, who is so
well known as "Volcanic Brown," happened to be in the country buying furs.
lie saw Copper mountain and reali/.etl
its great future. Robert Stevenson and
one, Janiieson, an old Hudson's Bay
factor, knew of the mountain and its
showings, but were too busy at placer
mining to locate claims, In 1802, Mr.
Brown returned to the country and located the Sunset on Copper mountain
and crown granted it. In 18117, a man
named Holmes located another property
Called the Lost Horse, ou the same
mountain, as he found the property
when searching for his horse, which had
strayed away. Mr. Stevenson bought
the claim from him immediately on seeing it. Since that time the whole mountain has been staketl.
The formation of the country is simple. A red granite belt runs through
from northwest to southeast. Running
parallel and close to this red granite is a
belt of conglomerate. Next conies one of
black diorite, which is a mile and one
half in width. Then conies a belt of
grey granite. The diorite belt contains
all the mineral. There are two fractures
on this diorite belt uniting in the Sunset antl Helen IL Gardner claims. The
junction of these two fractures causes
tjie great surface showing on the Sunset.
The principal fracture lies to the north
in the diorite belt, and can be traced a
distance of about four miles, and the ore
in it iiives good assays. Today ihe
only claims being actively worked
are the Sunset, by the Sunset Mining
company,  of  which   R. A.   Brown  ami
Chinaman Drowned.
On Thursday about 11 a. in. the Chinese proprietor of the Home laundry
went to the platform at the rear of the
laundry to draw a bucket of water.
The bucket was attached to a long rope
and thrown out into the creek. The
current was very swift and as tlie Chinaman was standing near the edge of the
platform be was jerked into the stream

Sam Hughes' Glorious Victory.
A Drachoender correspondent from
Cape Town, under date of April Ilth,
states that General Settle's column
reached Upington on March 30th. Colonel Hughes, the Canadian  M. P., and
��� chief of General Settle's staff, with two
City Volunteer cyclists,   two Canadians
: anil two other colonials, seized the pout.
I The rebel rearguard evacuated the town
hastily, after firing one shot, under the
impression that a large force was upon
I heiii. Rev. .Mr. Shroeder, a member of
the Cape Legislative Assembly, was cap-
lured 7!i miles west of Upington and
brought in. The rebels are surrendering their arms.
Swearing.
Young man, don't swear. There is no
occasion for it oulsiue of a printing
office, where it is useful when the paper
is behind time. It also conies iu handy
j in proof reading and is Indispenable
| when the ink works bad and the press
begnis to buck. It is sometimes brought
into use by the foreman when he's mad ;
and it has been known to entirely remove that tired I'eeltng of the editor
when he looks over the paper after it is
printed. Outside of the printing ollice
it is a foolish habit.
