Nelson,  British Columbia, Tuesday, January 22,   1901.
Eleventh  Year
WORK ON THE
QUEEN BESS
One of the Most Promising
Properties In the Slocan
District.
Development Work Being Carried On In an Energetic
Manner.
The year and century just fairly
commenced undoubtedly bus great
things in store for the mining district
of which Nelson is the commercial
centre, and no one property Is likely
to see more marked advance than the
Queen Bess mine operated from tbis
city. Within the next two or three
months the culmination of a comprehensive programme of development
will be reached and the property will
piobably assume a nosition among the
most extensive and richest producers
In tlie Slocan.
The Queen Bess mine is situated in
the heart of the Slocan, its shipping
point being Alamo Siding. It also
has tbe distinction of being one of
tho two or three raining propositions
worked by English capital in the Slocan. The property was opened up
jnst a trifle over three years ago and'
was operated by the Dominion Devl-
opnunt and Agenjy Company. Some
eighteen months ago the management
passed into the hands of the Duncan
Mines, Limited,the former owners retaining a large interest. A subsidiary company, the Queen Bess Proprietary Company, Limited, was formed to
swing the property.
The mine has been a shipper from
the start and has paid at least two dividends. For the last eighteen
months, however, the policy of the
management has been to expend tbe
whole proceeds In development with a
view to reaping enhanced benefits later, a policy1 whicli is only rarely
adopted. When tbe new management
took hold it was found that the ore in
the upper levels would bs exhausted
in the course of a year and a half,
and It became necessary to devise a
large scheme of development or to
face the closing down of the mine.
The directors determined upon the
former course and a deep tunnel was
commenced in September last. Since
then only enough ore has been taken
from the upper levels month by month
to defray the cost of exploration work.
The mouth of the tunnel is situated
400 feet lower down the hill than the
fifth or previous lowest tunnel. A
three drill compressor plant was put
in to facilitate driving together with
a large ventilating plant operated by
water power. This main tunnel is
now ln;1700 feet and Is seven feet by
nine feet in the clear. Tbe records of
the work Show that tho actual driv-
age was over 100 feet per month, an
excellent performance under the circumstances, while the highest drlv-
age in any one month was 103 feet.
Last summer a shaft was also started
from the lowest of the previous tunnels and this has been sunk 320 feet
on tbe vein by the aid of a compressed air hoist from the same compressor
that rung the drills. The lode has
been opened up at two stations below
No. 5, that is No. 0 and 7, 100 and 300
feet respectively below Nn. 5. A
raise has now been started from the
main tunnel to connect with No. 7.
This will be 185 feet long and No. 8
station will be located half way up
the raise. The lode has been proved
at No. 's 6 and 7, and ore is being extracted at tbe present time. The lode
at the level of the main tunnel has
not yet been explored but the upraise
will be completed in the course of
six weeks and the vein in the lower
level will then be vigorously explored.
All pre from tbe upper levels will be
handled through the main tunnel,
thus expediting the work and reducing the cost of mining.
The Queen Bess is situated in the
same mineral belt as the Payne and
Idaho mines which are located respectively ffjjf' north and south of the
Queen Bess. Roth the Payne and Idaho are now driving deep tunnels. In
fact most of.the big Slocan mines are
looking for their lodes in deep levels,
and from present indications tbeir
efforts will be crowned with success.
The Queen Bess vein carries, besides
the high grade silver lead ore, a' considerable    quantity    Of   carbonates
which aro now In demand at the smelters and can be treated at a very low
rate, btit the smelter rates now prevailing mean a loss of 93.34 per ton on
Queen Bess silver-lead ore. This silver-load product nets   -bout   800   and
the carbonates   S3

The company has recently bonded
the Silverite group of claims on the
Sandon side of the mountain, the belief being that the future deep levels
will be driven from that side of the
property, as the ore chutes seem to
dip in that direction. 10. R. Woakes,
consulting engineer for the Duncan
Mines, Limited, is the local manager
of the property, while W. O. Scott is
mine superintendent. Mr. Scott has
held the superlntendency for the past
two years and has been connected
with the Queen Bess almost ever since
the property was firBt opened up.

STRIKE ON PHOENIX.
SHE STILL LIVES
Unless Unexpected Complications Occur Queen Victoria
Thomas S. Dunbar   Confirms the Good
News.
The report of an excellent strike
on the Phoenix gronp on Springer
creek was confirmed here yesterday by
Thomas S. Dunbar, who is in charge
of the work on the ground. He states
that the discovery was better than he
had anticipated and tbat all doubt as
to the Phoenix being a mine is removed from his mind. The exploration
crosscut started some months ago broke
into a ledge from ten to twelve feet
in width which contained three distinct pay streaks of ore. These streaks
were carefully sampled and proved to
average 81. SO, 81.35 and 810 respectively. The Phoenix is located on one
of the few dry ore leads yet located on
Springer creek. A proportion of the
values are found in sulphides carrying silver, while the gold values are
largely contained in a free state. The
character of the ore renders it especially desirable because of the low smel-
tei charges conceded to dry ores.
The Phoenix is 2\4 miles from Slocan City and the shipping facilities
arc fairly good. The original owners
were McKinnon and others of Slocan
City and the property was controlled
by a stock company be/ore it passed
into tbe hands of Mr. Dunbar and bis
associates most of whom are Portland,
Oregon,   parties.    Work   was   started .        ,
on Noveriiberij the lrrltlal, opwttrons��� ���JJortroii tbe queen, spent in conscious,
being a shaft to determine the dip of
tbe vein. This accopmllshed It wag
possible to commence the crosscut
which was carried into effect and the
vein secured at a depth of 00 feet.
The bondholders are thoroughly satisfied witli the prospect and will increase their force shortly and continue to do so as circumstances permit. Various people who have seen
the property since the strike describe
it as among the best propositions in
the section. The bondholders have
erected a comfoi table camp on the
property, and are to be congratulated
on the success of their operations.
��   ���  ���
A sheriff's sale took place at the
court house yesterday at which a couple of mining propositions were offered for sale. The first parcel was a
quarter interest in the Two Friends
group a promising shipping mine in
the Slocan. The interest formerly belonged to R. Marpole and other coast
parties. It was bpiight in by A.
York, a well known business man of
Slocan City, who, with W. Shatford,
of Vernon," now holds tbe entire prop-
ery by virtue of ownership and options on remaining interests. It is
probable the mine will change hands
shortly. The second lot wa*) a block
ot Venus stock seized on a judgment
in the suit of Heddle vs. Stamford.
When the shares were put up W. A.
Galliher, M. P., acting for the defendant Stamford, filed an objection to the
Hale on the ground that the sheriff
had not served proper notice on the
defendant. On this ground tbe sale
was postponed to   Thursday morning.
Excellent reports are to hand from
the properties operated by T. G .Procter for the York-Manchester syndicate. At the Silverton Boy in the New
Denver cunip the long tunnel which
has been under way for some time has
come Into good concentrating ore,
and further work promises to show up
the clean shipping ore for which the
management is looking.- The galena
encountered carries some copper and
in every way resembles the ore from
the Emily Edith property adjoining
where the development is much further advanced. At the Alice near
Creeton, work bas been under way for
a considerable period and the property is rapidly becoming a mine. The
company has 800 tons of three to one
concentrates on the dump, and will
make a small shipment of its high
grade product abont tbe first of February. It is not proposed to ship in any
quantity until tbe concentrator now
in contemplation is Installed when the
Alice will take its place among the
heavy   producers   on the Crows' Nest
road.

Will Probably Live Until Thursday
Morning.
Yesterday Another One of Great Anxiety Throughout the
Whole Civilized fald-The Day at
Osborne Castle.
Cowes. Isle of Wight. January 22���5 a. m.���The Associated Press learns
that Queen Victoria Is expected to live until Thursday morning unless unless unexpected complications Occur.
Cowes, Isle of Wight, Jan. 33.���1 a.
m.���Another day in the Victorian
era, now rapidly drawing to a close,
passed without any great cbange in
the condition of Queen Victoria. The
slight improvement, so frequently
mentioned in the official bulletins,
merely indicates i postponement of
the inevitable. The end may be a
matter of days or only hours, but the
members of the royal family, who are
w dragging out a weary vigil at
Osborne house, know that the death of
her majesty is merely a question of a
short time. Tbe most noticeable feature of yesterday was the satisfactory
ness, which she regained early in the
afternoon and still retained at 10 ��.
m. At that hour she had not seen
Emperor William, local rumors to the
contrary, notwithstanding. Royalty
at Osborne thus bad a chance to recuperate from the terrible ordeal undergone during the early hours of
Monday. The correspondent of the
Associated Press is informed that the
members of the royal family were called to a room adjoining the queen's
bedchamber no less than five tines
yesterday morning and were kept in
momentary expectation of being summoned to witness the end up to half
past five. Her majesty's physioians
had tben only a vestige of hope that
they would be able to keep the
queen's feeble life in existence until
the Prince of Wales arrived. To se
cure this result they resorted to the
frequent use of brandy and champagne. These stimulants, used to an
extent which only the greatest emergency justified, worked their process;
and, when the Prince of Wales and
Emperor William entered the oastle
grounds at 11:30 a. m., they found
the queen a trifle better than had been
expected. The desperate remedies
employed Monday morning to enable
her majesty to live until her eldest
son's arrival will not be used again
for the doctors are fearful that the
remedy might be almost worse than
the disease. They trubt to prolong
ber life by a moderate application of
stimulants, combined with as much
nourishment as can be assimilated.
Such expedients as were employed
during Sunday evening and Monday
morning are not considered justifiable. The queen's rally astonished no
one more than her physicians and
when at four yesterday afternoon they
heard her ask for chicken broth, their
amazement almost equalled their delight. Privately, however, they build
no false hopes upon these signs of
what has been one of the strongest
constitutions with which a woman
was ever endowed. Despite the favorable afternjon, the doctors dreaded
greatly the portion between six
o'olook    and  midnight.   When  that
was safely passed they seemed hopeful
of her majesty's living at least
through another day, although the
memory of tbe previous night's, re-
lapse kept their anxiety at high tension. The news of tbe death, when it
occurs, is likely to be publicly announced in London before it is announced here, as, according to the
present arrangement, the first telegram is to be sent to the lord mayor
of London. There is an enormous telegraphic staff in Cowes, and additional facilities were installed yesterday
at Osborne. Already the villagers are
bewailing the fate that ig likely
to befall Cowes, for it is known that
the Prince of Wales will probably
never make Osborne house a place of
residence. There is an entire absence
of local excitement. The town has
settled down in patience and sadness
to wait the inevitable. Never has Emperor William arrived at any place lu
England with so little eclat. No salutes or cheers were given. The
men of the guardsbip Australia silently manned her sides. The crowd was
equally undemonstrative, the people
contenting themselves with baring
their heads. It was a greeting given
to the grandson of a dying woman
rather than to the ruler of a great
ally. After luncheon at the oastle,
the Prince of Wales, Emperor William
and the Duke of Connaught strolled
around the grounds and visited the local sailors' home. The Bishop of
Westminster, who bas been at Osborne
since .Saturday, visited the rector of
Whlppingham.
BULLETINS OF TH^ DAY.
Cowes, Jan. 31.���11 a. m.���The
queen has rallied slightly. Since midnight her majesty has taken more food
and has had some . refreshing sleep.
There is no further loss of strength.
The symptoms which give rise to most
anxiety are those which point to a local obstruction in the brain circulation. (Signed), James Reid, R. Douglas Powell, Thomas Barlow."
Cowes, Jan. 33.-13:30 a. m.��� Following is the full text of the bulletin issued at midnight: "There is no
material change iu the queen's con
dition. The slight improvement of
the morning has been maintained
throughout the day. Food has been
taken fairly well and some tranquil
sleep seoured." j

any moment.
Berlin, Jan. 31.���The foreign ofliee
has received information since Emperor William's arrival at Osborne
house that the condition of the queen
is hopeless. The Associated Press
learns that the object of the eniper
or's visit was to deliver special parting
messages on behalf of himself and
his mother, but it is believed at the
British embassy here that the Queen
was unconscious since Wednesday
night. Tbe embassy officials have
cancelled all invitations and acceptances.
London, Jan. 21.���Sir Thomas Bar
low is a celebrated authority on cer
tain afflictions and doubtless his diag
nosis led to the inclusion in the noon
bulletin of the explanation of refer
ences previously made to "symp
toms," the nature of which were not
specified.
London, Jan. 21.-12:12 p. ra.���The
more hopeful bulletin received at
noon hardly lessened the universal apprehension, and everywhere that bulletins are posted sorrowing crowds
have gathered awaiting the outcome
of her majesty's illness. Preparations made in all official quarters for
all eventualities indicate the expectations of those who might be supposed
to be best informed. The royal
aparments in Windsor castle aro being
made ready for a sudden return of the
court, and all state officials in any
way concerned in the issue are holding themselves in readiness for prompt
action. Another of the queen's physicians, Sir Thomas Barlow, reached
Osborne house this morning and a
moment later carriages dashed up
bearing Emperor William, the Prince
of Wales, the Duke of York and the
Duke of Connaught. A good sized
crowd had met them as they disembarked at Cowes. Naturally there was
no cheering hut the men present took
off their hats and the German emperor cordially and frequentlj* responded by bowing. They drove to
Osborne house in open carriages. The
Princejof Wales appeared to be half
dazed and the Duke of York's eyes
were red, while the Duchess of Connaught never ceased crying. There
was intense relief at Osborne house on
the arrival of the emperor   and   royal
would not live lo hear of the Prince of
Wales' return.

COAL FIELDS
Gooderham and  Blackstock
Bond 5000 Acres in Nicola Valley.
(BI'BCIAL TO THB MINOR.)
Vancouver, U. C, Jan. 31.���C. F
Law returned today from Nicola Vat
ley. He reports that he has bonded
for Gooderham & Illackstock tbe coal
measures in the valley on the lands of
Sam Tingley, Gilbert Blair and the
Green-Warnock estate, 5000 acres in
all, for 8100,000. This was done owing to the report of Mr. lturell of New
York, the same expert who reported
on the Crow's Nest field. Mr. llurell's
report was that tbe measures were the
most promising he had ever seen, at
their present stage of development,
and with a railway into the Kootenays from one to two thousand tons a
day could be shipped. On this rerjorl
und the further report that a mountain of iron ore very rich, waa located
behind the coal mines, running 55 to
60 per cent, iron, Gooderham tried to
secure a railway charter to run a railway into the mines. His attempt to
buy out the V. V. & E. for 8100,000
aroused McKenzie and Mann, who
straightway bought out the promoters
of the V. V. & E.themselves, for 865,-
000, and who have been trying ever
since with the promise of backing by
the Great Northern to induce both the
Dominion and Provincial governments
to give bonuses, before tbey start construction. In the meantime the C. P.
B. became alarmed, and reviving an
old charter obtained in 1873, they
started surveying a road from Abbots-
ford to Spence's Uridge, where their
main line passes, which takes them
through the valley. If they rush their
road to completion the V. V. & E. will
be blocked out, as they will not be
able to cross the C. P. R. tracks. The
Nicola people are greatly excited for
they think they are bound to have a
railway anyway to carry their cattle
and coal and make it possible to develop their own mines.

NEW SLIP IS A
BIG SUCCESS
Final   Test at   Procter by
C.P.R. Officials Sunday.
Empties and Loaded Cars
Transferred from Barge
to Slip.
It is probable by tbis time next
week the present C. P. R. executive
offices on West Baker street will be
vacated. The engineering department
will move on Sunday next unless
something transpires to prevent, and
Captain Troup's personal staff will
probably Bhitt their quarters before
that time. The new building is now
in the hands of the painters and kal-
sominers who aro finishing their
work. The old depot is likely to be
abandoned at the same time.
The local epidemic of grippe seems
to be increasing rather than otherwise. One firm of physicians has treated over 50 eases during tho last few
days, among the sufferers being A. C.
Ewart, Rev. Wm. Munroe and F. J.

built on the pontoon system which
has proved such a success at Procter,
and will cost in the neighborhood of
810.000. At the same time a contract
will be let for 80,000 ties to be used
in the eonstruction of the new Lardo
railroad. Some 14 miles of the rond
have already been graded,and the first
step taken after a final decision to
continue operations in the spring will
be to lay the ties and steel, so that
the line can be continued with all expedition possible. It will be necessary also to have the projected slip
completed before the plant to be used
in construction can be landed. While
the C. P. R. has not yet definitely
btated its intention to complete the
Lardo road, their preparations seem
to have removed all doubt on the matter, in the minds of those intereated.
The approaching Pan-Ameriean exposition is beginning to stir up the
railroads who will cater to the transportation business. An evidence of

Or it may have been that the C. P.
R. was the first to take the step which
lead to the trouble, and that the
;row's Nest people, finding that the
dilroad company was about to open
up new coal fields, laid a proposition
before James J. Hill, which proposition, or a modified one, was accepted.
It is known in some oircles that the
coal company and the C. P. X. have had
trouble in regard to freight rates as
they apply to the Nelson, Rossland and
Boundary districts. The rate on coal
from Fernie to Nelson, for instanoe,
has been and now Is 82.25 per ton.
Tnis rate was supposed, it is said, to
apply also from other points of shipment of the coal company. Recently
coal bas been coming to Nelson from
the oolleries at Michel and on this a
freight rate of 82.51 has been charg-

amount of coal upon
freight rate of $2.25,

BEAUTIES OF A GLACIER.
Scenes in the Canadian Rockies Likened to Vision of a Glorified City.
Hie fascinations of a glacier aro
aa *tvitching as they are dangerous.
Apostolic vision of a crystal city glorified by light "that never was on land
or sea" was not more beautiful than
these vast Ice rivers, whose onward
course is chronicled, not by years and
centuries, but by geological ages,
���ays A. C. Laut, writing In the New
York Post of the Great Ilhcilliiwact,
Asulkan and How River glacial region! of the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. With white domed
show cornices wreathed fantastic as
arabesque and with the glassy walls
of meraly grotto relleetlng a million
sparkling jewels one might be in
some cavernous dream world or among
the tottering grandeur of nn ancient
city. The ice pillars and silvered pinnacles, which scientists call seracs,
Stand like the sculptured marble of
temples crumbling to ruin. Glittering pendants hang from tho rim of
bluish chasm. Tints too brilliant for
artist's brush gleam from the turquois
of orystal walls. Rivers that How
through valleys of ice and lakes,
hemmed in by hills of ice, shine with
an azure depth that is very infinity's
Belf.
In tbe morning, when nil thaw has
been stopped by tho night's cold,
there is deathly silence over the glacial fields, even the mountain cataracts fall noiselesly from tho precipice
to ledge in tenous, wind blown
threads. But with the rising of the
sun the Whole glacial world bursts to
life in noisy tumult. Surface rivulets brawl over the ice with a glee
that is vocal and almost human.
The gurgle of riverB flowing through
subterranean tunnels becomes a roar.
as of rushing, angry sea, iee grip no
longer holds back rock scree loosened
by the night's frost, and there is the
reverberating thunder of the falling
avalanche.

a grasp of affairs which indicates that
their regime will be a business ad

T. J. Sims, secretary of the united
charity organization, addressd a communication to the council stating
that the organization hud closed the
past year with a delicit of 897 and requesting a grant of Sluo. A portion
of the delicit would probably be recovered and in event of the grant being
mat*c this sum   would be returned.
The mayor remarked that he had a
letter regarding a certain piece of
sidewalk but as the communication
was anonymous he would not lay it
before the council.
A man named Jones asked the coun-
oil to advance bim funds to purchase
a ticket to England where his people
belonged. Jones claimed to have
come to Nelson with 81.000 and to
have lost his money in wild cat mining and other unprofitable speculation. Mayor Fletcher volunteered to
investigate the matter.
This concluded the business and
council adjourned.
INDUSTRIES OF
EAST KOOTENAY
The Leitch Mill of Cranbrook
Doing a  Rushing
Business.
Lumber Being Shipped to All
Points In Northwest
Territories.
One of the most Interesting features
of the industrial growth of the Koote
nnys is the development of the lumbering interests of East Kootenay
Tho industry has already reached
large proportions and the prospect for
further expansion is very bright,
Alexander Leltoh of Cranbrook, one of
the largest operators in the district,
enlarges on this subject in an Interesting manner. His mill at Cranbrook has a capacity of ?5,000 feet per
day and is usually run close to this
mark during the season. Last year
the Leitch mill cut 6,000,000 feet of
lumber and this year the management
figures on an equally large output. A
crew cu* men is now engaged in cutting the season's supply of
logs and the mill is turning ont the
completed product for stock  purposes.
"Last year," says Mr. Leitch,"was
a busy one with the East Kootenay
mills up to September when the partial failure of the Manitoba crops
practically put an end to the demand
at a juncture when business should
have been unusually brisk. It is possible, too, that this crop failure may
affect the market in 1901 if the farmers of the Territories and Manitoba
should not feel disposed to carry out
the improvements they have planned.
The great market for British Columbia timber is in the country between
Winnipeg and the Rockies, and I look
to see the demand grow constantly.
About all the timber thus far sent
into the country has gone into temporary barnB, houses, granaries, etc.,
but now that the settlers are beginning to get on their feet financially it
is only natural to expect they will j
want better homes and buildings.
This with the influx of new settlers
ought to guarantee the market for
some years at least."
The Cranbrook Lighting Company
has recently completed the installation of a plant which has been set up
in Mr. Leitcb's mill. It includes a
2,000 light engine and a 750 light dynamo. Already over 600 sixteen c.p.
lights have been put in about the
town and two men are wiring other
buildings so that the present capacity
of tho plant will be reached shortly.
Tho question of arc lights is still nnder consideration as these have to be
put in by private enterprise, the
town not being incorporated. The
matter of incorporation Ib likely to
become an issue during the present
year, particularly because of the water supply.^ At present the town is
supplied from St. Joseph's river, the
water being distributed in tank carts.
A few wells exist but the water
therefrom is strongly alkali and unfit
for domestic use. Cranbrook's population now numbers 1,800 to 2,000
people and a number of fine residences
have been erected, tbe railroad men
running out of tbe town taking the
lead in this direction. The ensuing
year is expected to see marked advances in the building line, and with
further development of the mineral
resources of the district the citizens
look for marked expansion.
