Nelson, British Colombia. Sunday, October 8,  1899.
Tenth Year
The  German  press  is making capital
oat of the report that QmtBrito is SHAMROCK    WOULD     WIN
The Nature of Them is a Profound Secret.
HE  IS   NOT   ELIGIBLE,
sacrificing her friendship with the
United States in the Samoan matter in
order to gain Germany's support in
tne settlement of Delagoa Bay. It
soeniH certain that an entirely new
plan of Government is being considered by the three powers interested in
Samoa, hut the Associated Press is
able to assert authoritatively that such
negotiations will in no way result dis-
advantageonsly for the   United States.
United States Says  That James Obeirne
Cannot Eepres'nt the Transvaal Government.
London, Oct. 7. ���Judging from tho
repor's from South Africa, u state of
war practically exists between Great
Britain and the Transvaal. It senilis
almost paradoxioal in conjunction
with the facts that the British diplomatic agent, Mr. (Jonynghani Greene,
still remains at Pretoria, and the further fact that the negotiations continue.
A reason for the paradox probably
lies in an understanding of the curious
relations between the two Governments. Ab has already been cabled,
Great Britain is not likely to make a
formal declaration of war against
what she considers a depending nation,
the process being a mere issue of orders
to the military forces to restore the
state of sovereignty whioh she alleges
originally existed. Were England similarly at loggerheads with n power
recognized hy her as her eqnal, pride
mid precedent made some time ago
would have compelled her to break off
diplomatic relations. It is this legend
of suzerainty that enables her to pa-
liver without loss of self reBpect, and
at the same time to run a good nhance
of placing the onus of the beginning of
hostilities upon the Boers, or, failing
in that, deluy action until she has in
the field a sufficient force to ova. turn
the Transvaal, is the only ground upon
which it is possible to reconcile the
Government's utterance with its pass
ive reception of palpably hostile acts
on the part of the Boers, for it is now
impossible to believe that the Transvaal forces are massing merely for defensive purposes. Thus war appears to
be tho only possible outcome.. The
Boers are determined to preoipitate it
Hostilities aro only a question of days.
If England is allowed to take her own
time, then two months may elapse before the first blow is struck. Needless
to say all signs indicate that the Boers
will not tamely await the arrival of a
British army corpB.
Although the diplomatic negotiations
are Will nigh forgotten in the expected
exciting developments, they aro in a
peculiar stage, and deserve recapitulation. After the last Cabinet Council
it was officially Stated that tho Boers
bad not replied to the latest contemplated despatch; that the Foreign
Office, whilo deciding to consider the
question, expected an answer from the
Boers. The papers duly reported the
arrival of the reply, but none came.
Many took the silence to mean that
the Boers refused to discuss the controversy further, hut that this was wrong
become evident from President Krn-
ger's replv to the peace telegram of the
Transvaal committee in Loudon, iu
which ho said, as the latest British
despatch had asset ted that tho British
Government was formulating new proposals, thus implying that tho Hoers
were waitiug for Great Britain's new
demand, and did not wish tn waste
breath in discussing the proposition
already dismissed. What these new
demands consist of is still a mystery.
Fiist it was asserted that another Cabinet Council would pass upon them,
but it is now denied by Mr. Ohranber-
lain, who, in answering a despatch
from tho progressive members of the
Cape House of Assembly, said the demands had been communicated to the
Transvaal. Whethor this has actually
been done remains as much an enigma
as tho nature of the terms themselves.
As the possibility of war increases,
British conjecture as to the friendly
attitude of other European powers increases, Reference is frequently made
to probable Russian aggression in
Asia, whilo Franco, in the event of
hostilities, is sure to become active in
Northern Africa. Interference nt the
seat of war itself is not oontemplated,
for the apples which Frunoe and Russia wish to pluck do not grow in South
Africa. Delagoa Bay is naturally
watched   olosely   in  this   connection.
London, Oct. 7.���Advices from Pre-
tjrin say that Hie Transvaal Government has received a dispatch from the
| United States Secretary of State, Colonel Hay, to the effect that as General
James R. Obeirne, recently designated
by President Kruger to represeut the
Transvaal in the United States, is an
American, he cannot hold a diplomatic
appointment from the South African
Republic ill the United Statos.
Mr Bnsma-11 having left the United
States, Mr. Vanderhoog, a Hollander,
has undertaken to act in behalf of the
Transvaal. He will collaborate with
General Obeirne in the interests of
peace.
TROOPS  SAIL FOR HOME.
Agninaldo  Issues a Proclamation   Releasing Soldiers.
Manila, Oct. 7.���The Tennessee regiment will sail for the United States on
tho Transport Indiana, after a week
passed in tho harbor. Most of these
troops have been stationed in the
southeru islands. Their Colonel says
they are in excellent health and much
benefitted by the service. Six hundred
and seventy three will sail. Three officers and 1)1 men remain to enter into
business hore. Sixteen officers and 105
men have been discharged for re-enlistment. Two men were killed in action
and one was killed by accident. The
Chaplain and several others died of
disease.
Aguiuuldo. in a proclamation announcing the release of the American
prisoners, and authorizing Filiiino
soldiers in northern provinces to return to their homes says: "In America there is a jjreat party that insists
on the Government recognizing our
independence. It is probable that party will compel the United States to
fulfill the promise made to us in great
faith, though not in writing. Therefore we must show our gratitude and
maintain our position more resolutely
than ever. We should pray to God
that that great Democratic party may
win the next Presidential election and
Imperialism fail ill its mad attempt to
subjugate us by force of arms. There
are some Americans in the Philippines
who have joined us uroause they disapprove of a war of what Mr. Atkinson
culls 'oriniiual aggression.' When
offered a chance to return to their own
camp tbey declined."
Thiougbout the proclamation Aguiu-
aldo denounces the "Imperialists" instead of the Americans, as in former
documents. He calls the world to
witness that the Filipinos have not
broken the alliance made with the
Americans through Admiral Dewey
and the United States Consuls at Hong
Kong and Singapore.
The people on seeing the American
prisoners oried ont, "We do not want
war against the United States. We
only defend our independence against
the Imperialists, tho sons of that
mighty nation aro our friends and
brethren,"
VALUABLE CAR BURNED.
Milwaukee, Oct. 7.���An Evening
Wisconsin special from Millsville,

The Race Yesterday was Remarkably Close.
���In Favor of the Irish Boat.
A SUMMARY OF THE SAILING TIME.
The Handling of the Shamrock Was Universally Conceded
to be Better Than That of the American Boat.
���Thousands Witness the Race.
New York, Oct. 7,���There was a
spanking breeze from the northwest-
east and a heavy swell from the eastward when the yacht Columbia, under
mainsail and jib, flitted away from a
pointoff Southwest Spit at 9:20o'clock
with the Bheets eased a trifle, headed
for the Sandy Hook lightship at a la-
knot dip.
Besides Manager-Owner Iselin and
Mrs Iselin there were nn board Herbert Leod, Captain Nat Herreshoff.
who, when the yacht passed the Associated Press boat, Jenny Nichols, was
lying on the weather Bide of the deck
watching the sky through a pair of
green goggles; Captain Woodbury
Kone. and Hugh Kelly, the last named
tho representative of the Royal Ulster
Yuoht Club. Captain Barr held the
wheel to windward, one of the orew
assisting on the lee side. The rest of
the crew were distributed along the
weather rail. The Columbia was carrying the same mainsail as on Thursday.
The Shamrock made an early start
from Sandy Hook. She passed out by
the point of the Hook at 9:05, oarrying
tbe same Bail as the Columbia, arriving off the lightship a few minutes before 1 o'clock. On her deok were Hon.
Henry F. Lippitt, the New York
Clnb's representative, Sailmaker Ramsey, Hugh McGill Downey, Sherrohn
Crawford, and Captains Ben Barker,
Hogarth and Wringe.
At 10:20 the Columbia sent up her
working topsail in stops, the wind being strong enough at that time to warrant the setting of that sail, but even
while they were hoisting it the wind
lighened considerably and 15 minutes
later the No. 2 club topsail was bent
ou. Tho Shamrock also bent on n No.
2 olnb toenail,nnd both yachts set their
sails at almost the same time. At
10:30 the tug which was to drop the
outer mark started to log off tho course
at 15 miles to leeward. Four niinntes
later down came the Shamrock's club
topsail, and iu just niue minutes her
biggest jack yarder was mastheaded
and shook out. The Columbia kept
her No. 2 topsail, Captain Barr probably hoping that it, would bo more
desirable in the windward work and
that it would make sufficient difference
on the work down the wind. At II :05
the preparatory signal was given, at
11 :15 tbe warning signal and at II :20
the gun to start. When the warning
sigi.al was given both yachts were on
the starboard tack east of the committee boat, tho Columbia being to windward and both heading to the south
west. The wind was light from the
north-northeast, with little promise of
it freshening. The Columbia luffed
first of the two uutil sho was close ou
the wind to starboard tack. Acting
ns if to cross the committee boats, the
Shumroek stood ou a little longer then
jibbed and came up on the same taok,
setting her staysails, as she did so.
Captain Barr, to fill in the time, kept
the Columbia off for about !!0 seconds,
then luffing her sharp on the wind
again headed her to fetch close by the
committee boat's bow on the way to
tho line. Her staysails had not been
set yet, and the Shamrock was travelling with better headway towards the
same spot. Skipper Hogarth, seeing
his chance now being less than a minute before gun fire, sent the Shamrock's bowsprit close along the Columbia's lee quarter, ready to luff at gun
fire if the opportunity came, Both
yachts were running parallel to line,
neither daring to keep off till the signal. They were about the centre of
tbe line at gun fire, tjuick us a flash
Skipper Hogarth put his helm down,
shot the Shamrock across the Columbia's wake, and as he sraightened her
up again her bowspirt overlapped the
Columbia's  weather qaarter.    He was
able to accomplish this by reason of
the Irish boat having better headway
than the Columbia.
Capt. Barr held his course almost to
the light ship at the weather end of
the line before keeping off, thus tryiug
to force Hogarth out of the commanding position wliich he had so cleverly
obtained, but in vain. The Shamrock
not only held ber position, but began
to overhaul the other and blanket ber.
Tho official time of the race was: Columbia, 11:21.02; Shamrock, 11:21.19.
As in one of the previous races, Hogarth did not set his balloon jib topsail, being better prepared with No. 2
jib topsail for the luffing match
wliich he felt was sure to come. It
came with a vengeanoe.for the Columbia, in order to prevent the green boat
from blanketing her, was obliged to
luff fully half a dozen points out of her
course.
As it was, in five minutes her mainsail was blanketed by tbe Shamrock,
the only sail drawing on the Columbia being the balloon jib topsail for a
few minotes. So far out of their
courses were they luffing that all the
excursion fleet on the west Bide of the
course hnd to get out of the way at full
speed. Ten minutes after the start
the Shamrock had the weather berth,
the Columbia a couple of lengths under
her lee bow. Five minutes later tbe
Shamrock t^ok in her small staysail
and Bet a balloon staysail. In spite of
all sho could do, tbe Shamrock was
Hot able at this time to outfoot the Columbia sufficiently to pass clear ahead
of her, even though s��e blanketed ber
several times. Finally at 11:41 the
Shamrock kept square off ou the
conrse, breaking out ber spinnaker, tho
Columbia following suit. For some
minutes the hend of the Shamrock s
spinnaker would not break out, while
its foot was trailing in the water.
Her balloon jib topsail had been set a
few minutes and both sails wore pulling splendidly. Sometimes tbe Columbia's bows showed out ahead and
sometimes the Shamrock's, looking at
theru from a point on the starboard
beam of both boats. The Columbia
finally pulled out a length to the good,
aud in ten minutes she gained another
length. At 12:15 she was fully half
a dozen lengths in tho lead. This was
encouraging to the American spectators
while it lusted, but it did not last long.
The yachts had been sailing down
alrug the Jersey boaoh, and within
three miles of it. They were bo far off
their couse that it soon became evident
they must jihe to fetch the outer murk.
As soon as Hogarth saw the mark at
12:52 ho took in tho Shamrock's spinnaker jibbed her and trimmed down
the balloon jib topsail in just five
minutes. Before the Columbia's people
had realized what he was up to, the
green boat, with everything drawing
splendidly, was luffing up towards the
Amerjcnu boat. In just six minutes
she had passed her. Then Captain
Barr and his orew woke up, took in
tho spinnaker, jibbed tbe Columbia
smartly, but were slow in trimming
down the balloon sheet. The Shamrock was then well out to windward of
the Columbia. Just un tbe whistles of
the exjursion fleet began their soreeoh-
es of welcome to the yachts, tho Shamrock's ciew trimmed down the Bheets
as the yncht lulled aronnd the mark.
The Oolumbin's liowsprit was right
over her taffrail, however, and as she
came up in the wind Captain Barr shot
the Bristol boat iu lietween the Shamrock and the mark, neatly taking the
weather berth. It was a clev.-r bit of
work, and it placed the American boat
in   the   lead.
J,Time   of   rounding   the mark  was
Shamrock, I :IW:25; Columbia, 1 :!)�� :114
thus    showing   that    the    Shamrock
rounded the mark  nine seconds ahead, j
Some iden of the olose sailing of the!
two yachts on the same tuck may be
gathered from the fact that from 4:15
to 4:31, when the race was declared
off, the shadow of the Shamrock's club
topsail remained almost iu one spot on
the lee side of tbe Columbia's main- !
sail. If today's race had been contin- I
ued to the finish,some five miles away, I
it would be exceedingly hnrd to predict the winner. Throughout the
handling of both boats was excellent,
but the balauce was probably in favor
of tbe Sharurook's skipper and crew.
It may be of interest to many to know
approximately what the result of the
race would have been had it ended in
reality where the event was declared
off. In view of the closeness of the
yachts at that time, it was fair to suppose that if the finish had been there,
the Columbia would have crossed it 10
Becouds in advance of thu Shamrock,
Iu that case summary for 25 miles
would have been as follows:

VERDICT OF GUILTY.
Union Colliery Company Convicted of
Criminal Negligence.
Victoria. B. C., Oct. 7. ���(Special to
The Miner.)���After a heading extending over four days the oharge of criminal uegligence brought by the Crown
against the Union Colliery Company
in connection with the collapne of the
Trent River bridge wns placed in the
hands of the jury shortly after noon
today. Judge Walker submitted the
following question: "Did the defendant company neglect to take reasonable
precautions and to use reasonable cure
in maintaining tbe truss bridge which
fell, as stated in the indictment, while
a locomotive and tender and some coal
cars were in the act of running upon
it, tbe result of the accident being the
death of six persons who were on the
train?"
After being out three hours the jury
returned witb a verdiot of guilty. Mr.
Pooley for the defendant company
gave notice of his intention to move
in arrest of judgment, and asked permission for the case stated, all points
being reserved. His Lordship postponed judgment until tbe full court has
decided on the reserved case.
ALASKAN CONTROVERSY.

London, Oct. 7.���It now seems that
the Alaskan controversy will probably
be settled earlier than was suggested
yesterday. There is reliable authority
for tho statement that tho finishing
touches will be given at Woshngton
within tho next four days.

New York, Oct. 7. ���(Special to tho
Miner. ) ��� A crowd of Bporting men
from Philadelphia came to Now York
recently, bringing a big beat, tho
Georgiana. with them. They advertised extensively iu the New York
newspapers, tickets for the yacht races
at $3 a piece, and took about 000 passengers aboard, and started down the
bay this morning from Pier No. li,
North River, and as scon as the boat
bad let loose from the dock and away
from police interference, opened a sort
of Monte Curio on board. About noon,
and as the boat was off Coney Island,
she suddenly shut off steam and began
to drift about the lower bay and the
Jersey shore. Tho drifting continued
for nn hour, aud the passengers began
to feel uneasy, as they wero not yet
within five miles of the conrse of the
yaoht race. They demanded of the
captain, Alex Streck, why he hud not
continued down towards the race
conrse. At this time the engineer.
Wm. Schwartz, cumo to tho Oaptain
and explained that the boat could not
proceed further as the water pipes
leading from the boiler to tbe engine
had bur st. Otlier reports came from
below thut Ihe ship had sprung a leak.
A panic on board seemed immiuent.
It was headed off by the coolness of
Copt. Norton, of Hartford, Conn.,
who went; in person to the Captain of
the ship and demanded that he take
them to the race. The captain said ho
could do nothing, as the boat was in
charge of Philadelphia men. He then
left the deck, went down into the held
and remained there. Captain Norton
then called for assistance, nnd a guard
of 50 pusougcrs was organised and took
a stanrt fore and nft on the boat and
hoisted a Union Jack at halt mast
and dew the United States flag with
union down.
A fight between the viglantes and
the Philadelphia men followed. There
was �� fierce struggle For the possession
of the flags and the signals. All the
passengers on board took u hand in the
tight and forced several gamblers back,
handling some of them roughly.
Women fainted on all sides. Men
shouted themselves bourse iu the effoit
to attract passing craft. Tho naval tug
Dolphin and other boats passed by (lid
not hear. Norton with a brigade then
threw all the gambling outfit overboard, after u bard struggle with the
owners of the games, Henry P, Post,
pilot, steered the craft toward the
Battery, When just off quarantine the
tugboat Edna King, iu charge of Capt.
Window, saw the signals of trouble
and put alongside her and was told to
head for Now York ut full speed aud
have the police ready when the boat
lauded. Thu tug beaded for the Battery and the Older had been given the
engineer to Steam up anil the boat guve
the tug B nice lo reach llio   pier before
the polios could be summoned. Warned
of the impending trouble, Captain
Allaire with Sergt. McCullough and
several officers awaited tho arrival uf

had been started thut n murder hud
been committed on tbe bout, which
gained circulation, and crowds flocked
from all directions to the Battery.
Shortly ufter 3 o'clock the boat was
sighted coming up the Narrows. The
tug was ahead of her. The excitement
began to be intense. When in front
of the Statne of Liberty tho tug put to

of policemen boarded the tug and gave
chase to tho excursion boat. She
crowded the tug boat, forcing her to

THE ALASKAN BOUNDARY.
A decidedly uncomforatble feeling
ie produced by the latest Washington
dispatch bearing on this question. We
do not forget that former dispatches on
the same subject, furnished by the Associated Press, have not always been
truthful, and it may be that the correspondents are following the old practice and drawing on their imagination
in this instance. But the nature of
the information, and the oircumstau ;e
with which it is related, suggest some
official authority, and confirm the suspicion that the question has assum.'d
the shape assigned it in the dispatch.
Whatevor the British Government
and the British people desire in the
matter the Canadians are bound to regard with every reasonable consideration. It is Great Britain that has to
stand the brunt of empire, a'ld she
must not be expected to take every little colonial matter as seiiously as colonials themselves. This boundary question may not be a little matter, but it
is not of vital importance to Great
Britain, and it is extremely desirable
that the best of feeling should provail
beween the Mother Country aud the
United States. The Miner takes the
ground that in regard to this boundary
question the Canadian people should
pay every respect to the wishes of the
Home authorities, and make every reasonable sacrifice to meet them.
But our loyalty nnd affeotion are
being subjected to a severe strain if
the present shape of the question is as
represented. What the provisional
agreement may be does not signify,
so long as it is understood to be provisional and nothing else. But to consent to a reference on the terms and iu
the spirit prescribed, as alleged, by
the Washington authorities, is hut
alighty different from a surrender of
the whole case. The extraordinary
condition is mnde that the American
contentiou and the British contention
shall each bo presented, and between
these two the arbitrators shall decide.
It is possible that neither contentiou
would be correct, and in that case the
arbitrators must agree on a boundary
that the Tieaty never intended or contemplated, That is not arbitration ns
generally understood, and to avoid the
trouble and expense of it the purpose
could be served quite as well by flipping a cooper. The only just or reasonable reference is the Treaty itseli,
with the instruction to the tribunal
to find the boundary a reasonable interpretation of its provisions would
seem to indicate,
Tins extraordinary condition is not
more sat prising than the reason assign* ��� ! lor it. The-c ust I e no co -

Administration, ii   appears, has   been

States will never submit to the least
surrender of sovereignty ovei water or
lands that aro now or have been regarded ns American territory, therefore the arbitration must be conducted
on lin"S of least risk to the United
States. This is limply making a farce
of arbitration. If assured they will
get what they olnim, the people of the
United States will arbitrate; if not,
not. And should they otherwise consent, and the award go against thorn,
the Senuto would refuse to rutify. All
this is declared with a flippancy nnd
assurance that denote an amazing
ignorance or still more amazing disregard of the principle which is supposed to unriorlio arbitration nnd to commend it to tho consideration of civilised nations.
In a letter addressed to The Colonist,
the editor of the late lamented Victoria
Globe said, among other things, tint
���'The Nelson Miner is the leading and
most influential newspaper of the Interim'. " Our modesty will not permit
us to claim as much, but with a little
more time on our sido we promise that
it will be one, if not both.
SENSATIONAL TRIAL
Berlin, Oct. 7.���The sensational trial
of the Club der Harralosen has itirred

NELSON DAILY MINER, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1899.
MINER'S   SPECIAL
GOOD RESULTS FROM ADVERTISING,
-ATTRACTS ATTENTION-
Ihe Board of Trade Pamphlet, The Miner'b
Special Edition of Great L'enefit.
-Citizen Says it Pays.
The uses and advantages of jndioior.s
advertisement are universally reoop;.
nizeii in theory, bnt in praotiee business men, usually the leaBt prosperous
of the community, nre sometimes met
with who fail to see how their particular business will be benefitted there
by while there are still more who, in
their henrts, look upon money spent iu
advertising their town as whole, as
practically thrown away. A striking
instance of the elticency of advertising
was yesterday brought to the notion of
The Miner by Manager Anuable, of
the Nelson Opera House.
"I havo found iu the past, "said Mr.
Anuable, "considerable difficulty in
Honking first class companies for the
Nelson Opera House The dillieulty
has arisen from the fact that Nelson is
off the regular circuit of these shows,
and it was difficult to persuade them
that it was worth theii whi'e to brcak
their trip, come up into tho mountains
and show in what, to them, at leaBt,
was an unknown t wn. Recently I
have adopted different; luetics, and in
order to show thein >ve have �� uraid

c I,, .f Un- Board of Trade pamphlet
and of the special edition of The Miner
with hit letters. This has worked l,ke
a charm, nnd I nm now receiving
favorable replies, one of which was
from ihe Gorton's Minstrels "
Gorton's Minstrels nre reported to be
the best minstrel show now in North
America, and Nelson will have an np-
poronity for judging for themselves on
Tuesday evening. However this may
lie, the fact remains that judicious advertising has borne fruit,in that it has
attracted favorable attention to our
City. Theatrical managers are among
the shrewdest business men iu tho
world, and when they are attracted
others in other lines of business nre
sure to follow in their wake The
resources and beauties ot Nelson and
the district, when adequately and attractively set forth, will always be
suHicient to draw the attention of
tht.se on the lookout for openings for
investment or business, and that is
why all intelligent and far-seeing business men applauded and supported the
Hoard of Trade and The Miner in their
recent successful effort to make our
beautiful aud growing town better
known to the outside world.

Night to a Good House.
The R. E. French Theater Company
closed their week's engagement here
last night in "Hands Across the Sea,"
one of Sirania & Pettit's famous Adal-
phi Theater dramas. The rendition of
the piece was well up to their usual
high standard, an I the popularity of
the company has achieved here was
amplv demonstrated by tho shouts of
applause which greeted Mr. French's
announcement, aftei the fourth act,

In the oourse of an interview given
to The Grand Forks Miner. Mr. Ua-
vies, of tile Provincial Building and
Loan Association, of Toronto, said:"l
can recall Nelson as a small village
scarcely more than four years ago. On
visiting it lately I was greatly impressed witli its marvellous growth and development. Onr company, looking at
the matter purely from a business
point of view, has reached tbe conclusion that Nelson, Rossland and Grand
Forks are destined to become very popular centres in tbe near future."
Chas. A. Hinckley, alia* Chas. A.
Morris, accused of absconding with
|H7,000, funds of the Westside bank of
New York, has been freed by Judge
Forin at Rossland. Tbe extradition
proceedings against him were heard
before Judge Forin, and resulted in
his dismissal, on the ground that the
extradition treaty of 18H0 is not retroactive, and for the reason that the extradition treaty iu force previous to
that time did not cover crimes like
the one with which he was accused.
As a result of this, the court held that
Hinckley could not be returned to the
United States, and directed that he be
released.

l     MINING NEWS.     |
������ ���-������������������������������������������������������a ������������
Tbe Fairview Corporation, Limited,
operating the Sternwinder mine at
Fairview, has received enconraging
reports from their property. In reporting 011 the mine, Mr. Josiph Taylor, examiner for the Gooderham-
Blackstuck Syndicate, says in port:
"Tbe oro will positively go down
for some distance, and the outcrop extends in both directions far beyond
the end lines of the claim, so thai; as
far as nvailable ore goes, one may dismiss that by saying it would keep a
40-stamp mill going for years.
Mr W. Thomas Newman, M. 0. M.
T., reported on the mine partly as
follow.-;:
'���I have just finished a thorough examination of the levels of tho Stem-
winder mine, and after a careful comparison of the same with the report ol
J. F. Blexsoe, M. E, dated May 15,
18!)!) and now seen by mo for the first
time, 1 am able to endorse the said report as correct in substance and in
fact, and to add that in my opinion
snob extensive blooks of ore as yon
have blocked out in tbe Sternwinder
mine can be mined and milled by a
mill of not less than BO stamps, located
at the mine, for an average cost of less
than $2 per ton.''
The company has purchased the
Smuggler mill and intends to run
through 1,000 tons of ore at once, taken
from the different stopes, thus thoroughly establishing tho value of the
ore.
Recent development in the mine consists of a drift at the bottom of the
shaft on the second level, driven west
for 300 feet, while the same drift has
also been driven ei.st for 225 feet, 585
feet of drifting in all. An upraise has
been put in from the second to the first
level, a distance of 100 feet, where 1-1
r'eet of driting has also been done. All
the above workings are in quartz, aud
the shaft will shortly be sunk another
;00 feet Tho quartz in the mine averages |5 per ton.
A saw mill has been purchased and
installed, there is ample timber at
hand, and the large bodies of ore can
be very economically trented. The
compauy also owns extensive coal
lands, which should prove very valuable. Iu short, the Stoinwinder may
before long be exjected to be a big and
regular dividend payer. The stock recently suffered a temporary fall, owing
to a largo stockholder suddenly flooding the market; bnt the stook was immediately snatched up, the fall checked
and a material increase in values maybe expected.
��   ��   ��
Windermere, Oct. 4, ���(Speoial Correspondence to The Miner.)���Tbe famous Red Line group has been bonded
by the Fraser-Obalmers syndicate.
Tbe figure in not known, bnt it is understood that it is somewhere around
1120,000. Paulding Farnham, of New
t'ork, representing the above syndicate, made an examination of the
property during the past week. It iu
generally understood that since Robert
Mulford, of the same syndicate, who
bonded the Divideud group, sitnated
on Law Creek,made an examination of
the Red Line group last snmmer, that
they (the Fraser-Obalmers Syndicate)
have been very anxious to secure the
property. Development work has already commenced under tho direction
of Mr. Sutherland.
Messrs. O. P. Seale and W.H. Welch,
of Sandon, struck it rich on Number
Two Creek, having located an immense silver-lead proposition.
Messrs. Collett & Starbird deserve
great credit for the way that they
have handled the Dividend and Red
Line groups.
It is understood that R. R. Bruce,
C. E., of Nelson, representing Messrs.
Osier & Hammond, of Eastern Canada, has hondod tbe Delphine mine on
North Fork of Joly Creek from Messrs.
Kimptou, Starke and Harrison.
Ever sinco Joe Lessard, who was
accompanied by two siwashes, made
tbe strike on Number Two, prospectors
are flocking there in large numbers.
The latest strike reported was made by-
Messrs. Seale and Welch, of Sandon.
It is understood that a compromise
has heen effected between N.W. Mackintosh of tbe Mackintosh Syndicate,
and Messrs. Starbird, Collett und Robinson, the defendants returning |5,000,
the amount of the first payment made
on the Red Line group by Mr. Mackintosh. Tho amount of the bond was
1100,000. The Mackintosh Syndicate
have released all claims upon the property. As has already been stated in
The Miner, tbe Mackintosh Syndioate
did bring suit against Messrs. Stajbird
and Robinson for breaoh of contract,
also to recover the first payment of
15000, but it has been settled, as stated
above, and is not open for correction
as per the Fort Steele Prospeotor of
September 80th, as tbe writ was duly
recorded at tbe mining recorder's office
at Windormere.
John Burman returned from Bonldor
Creek on the Sloth ult., and reports an
immense showing of high grade gray
oopper and argentiferous galena ore on
the Ground Floor group, This property is sitnated in the immediate vicinity of the Sitting Bull mine. Mr.
Burman reports that there is over 2
feet of solid ore on an average in sight,
which has been snipped for over 50
feet. This group was located during
the season of Ih!ik by Mr. Burman etal.
The ore averages over (ISO to the ton,
It is not unlikely that this property
will be bonded to an eastern syndicate
during the next two mouths. A force
of meu lias been worked throughout
the summer under the direction of E.
L. Kenney, of West Kootenay.
The    Swansea,     Dividend,     Silver I
Tlnead,   Delphine,   Sitting  Bull, Red
Line. White Elephant, White Cat  and
Pretty   Girl   mines   are   all   working
large forces of men
It is understood that there is a deal
on foot for the White Cat, situated on
Boulder Creek, owned by James R.
McLeod et al., of Windermere.
The Government bridge across the
Columbia River, head of Lake Winder-
meio, is now completed, thanks tn W.
O. Wells, M. -P. P. for Northeast
Kootenay.
The crops throughout the valley will
be better this fall than they have been
for years.
Two new saw mill plants will shortly be installed in the district, one at
Peterborough, the othjr at Boulder
Creek Bridge.
A large hotel is being erected at Peterborough, the new townsite.
Buildings aie springing up in all
directions throughout the district, especially at Canterbuiy, Windermere,
Atbalmer and Peterborough townsites.
R. S. Gallop has resumed work on
the Phoenix gronp, Horse Thief Creek.
The New British Columbia Syndicate, of London, England, represented
by W. G. Mitohell-Innes, has
bonded the wonderful striko that was
made on Spring Creek, a tributary of
Toby Creek.
Business is better now than at any
time during the past season
Prospertors and mining men continue to arrive by every stage.
