Oity Engineer's Report to the
City Oouncil.
THE PROPOSED REMEDY
dr. McCulloch Fstiiuatea That It Would
Take $25,000 to Put in a Pipe
Line to Supply Nelson.
That the wator supply question is
one of vast importance to the citizens
of Nelson is evident from the report
of City Engineer McCulloch which
was presented to the Oity Council at
its meeting on Monday evening. Mr.
McCulloch's report in full was as
follows:
The present water supply is obtained
from Anderson Creek at a point near
tho junction of the east and west
forks, utilizing the whole flow of the
creek. Since Octoher 1897 I havo made
careful gaugings of tho flow in Anderson Creek with the following results :
(1) Iu the winter of 18117-98 tho extreme low water flow was ou -February 1, amounting to 500,000 gallons pet-
day.
(2) The low water flow in the fall
of 1898 was on September 18, amounting to 480,000 gallons per day.
(i!) The low water Uow during the
past, winter was ou Mareh 7.amounting
to 8(10,000 gallons per day.
Duriug the time of extreme low
water in Anderson Creek in tho begin
lliug ot Mareh of this year the supplj
was insufficient to meet ordinary ue-
niands. Had nut the thaw uiuiinoncoi.
when it did the quesitou of water supply would have been a very serious
one.
With the largo inorease of popula
tion during the precept year and the
consequent larger consumption of water
1 have no hesitation in saying tbat
wilh a cold winter, such as we have
just had, the presi ut water supply
will be totally inadequate during lhe
coming wiuter. Outside of Anderson
Creek, Cottonwood Creek is the onlv
other available source of supply by
gravity, Cottonwood Creek, with the
addition of the water from Clearwater
and Whitewater Creeks, whieh the
City is uow diverting intoOottOUWJod
Oreek, will supply not less than 10,
01)0,000 gallons of water por day which
will be suffloient for a population of
500,000 so that thore is no question
Whatever as to Cottonwood Creek beiug iho proper source of Nelson's future water supply, Cottonwood Lake
also forming un excellent ualural stur-
age reservoir,
To utilize Cottonwood Creek it will
be necessary to rim a pipe line from
tho corner of Stanley and Latimer
streets, along Miues Roads to Cotton -
wood Creek to a point, about 3,000
feet above Giveout Oreek, a total <lis-
laneo of 10,000 feet. This pipe line, I
would recommend, should bo lap
welded or nvottod mild steel. The
size of this pipe ileponds on the population it, is expedient to provide for; a
12-inch pipe will supply a population
of 9,000, a 14-iiu'b pipe a population
of 18,000.
As to Iho cost, of this work it is very
diffloult to figure very closely at the
present time ou account of Ibe fluctuations in the prieo of , iron. But, assuming we uso a 14 inch pipe, I estimate the cost of this pipe lino laid
oomplete 10,000 foot long, with dam
and necessary gate valves etc., at
188,000.
It will be seen by tho above report
that it is absolutely necossary that
the water system should be put iu
something like proper shape before
next, ^winter. If it is not, the only
thing to look forward to is a water
famine. The wator is getting, oon-
liantly lower ns the report shows and
by September next there would not
be enough to supply the present demand
to say nothing of the increase iu population there will bo this summer.
The Oity Oounoil is asking for *!��).-
000 for water purposes, #25,000 to lay
the pipo line anil $5,000 for tho extension of the mains. Thero will
hardly ho any; opposition to the bylaw.

Intentions.

uot meeting today the recent utter
ances of Captain Coghlanof the cruiser

a letter on the snbjtot from Oaptaiu
Coghlan. The Captain disclaimed
any intention of insulting the German Emperor nr Admiral Von Died-
orich, and his remarks on tho occasion
of the Union League Club banquet
were made in the most, informal manner iu the company of friends without
any thought that they would be repeated to the public. As they did
appear he said they were exaggerated
and distort ed and he was made to say
things that he did not, utter. He
claims that under the oircumstanoe-i
his remarks should be regarded as privileged.
After the cabinet meeting adjourn
ed Secretary Long and Secretary Hay
remained a short time with the President to further discuss the matter.
It is understood that the captain will
soon retire from the service through

th*? authorities wil! show him as.much
consideration as is consistent*.

A MOST DARING DEED
Six Men Orawl Across a  Broken  Bridge
Under a  Very   Heavy   lire
From tha Enemy
Manila, April 35.���10:80a. m.���General MoArthnr's division fought to
the trenches before Calumpit today advancing four miles through woods and
jungle and crossing the Bugling river.
Six Americans were killed and 28
wounded. The Sortb Dakota regiment
pursued the insurgents to the outskirts
of Calumpit, which was so strongly
protected tht General McArthur deemed it best to withdraw his tired lighters
and oarop for a night's rest before
assaulting the town. Tha largest
buildings of Calumpit were on lire
when the Americans crossed the river
a mile away, indicating the intention
of the insurgents to abandon the
place.
Manila, April 25.���10:80 p. ui.���Tho
insurgents socm to have adopted a settled polioy of retiring from oue position to aiiofhe*r after inflicting the
greatest, possible damage upon tho advancing army. Their forces today
wero well diilled. Every foot of
ground was tenaciously disputed by
thoroughly organized troops who
stood remarkably firm evon beforo artillery. The enemy had plauueo to
.vi k the Amerioan artillery transport
train, This attempt was a failure
hut* a span of the iron railway bridge
over the river was destroyed, hum-
paring the Amerioan transportation for
some time. The Filipinos cut the
girters intending to have tho structure
Cull with the train, but it collapsed
with its own weight.
The Baghag river whioh is about a
hundred yards wide at that point was
splendidly fortified and the Americans were compelled to approach across
oi open spaoe from which the rebels
had cleared every Obstruction in sight,
the hank of tho river, a bluff, was
surmounted with trenches, capped
with rocks, loopholed aud partly hidden hy hushes. General Wheaton's
brigade approached the river along
ihe railroad leaving the camp beyond
Malolos City to General Hales, who
started yesterday and was earlier on
the march sweeping westward toward
the railroad.
Tho armored train was being pushed
by Chinamen, the 20th Kansas regiment advanoing iu extended order on
tho left, and the first Montana regiment, with the Utah light artillery on
ihe right. Tho rapid tiring gnus on
Iho train, "Opened the ball" nt 11:80
i. in. about a niilo from the river,their
popping alternating continuously with
the boom of the six pounders. Tho
Montana regiment, and the Utah batteries at tho samo time entered the
.jungle, from which Ihe insurgents,
who wore occupying a largo struggling
village of huts, poured heavy volleys.
In Iho course of an hour Iho Americans had forced a passage through tlie
woods to the   open   space   in   front of
the nver and tho artillery immediately
un wheeling into the open begun shell
ing the Filipino trenohes. In the
meantime Oompany K of the 201 h
Kansas led by Captuin BoltWOOd performed one of the most, brilliant
achievements of the campaign, The
regiment whs being hold in reserve
and Company K charged a distance nl
quarter u( a mile over a cornfield
to the bank of the river near the
bridge where the insurgents from a
ireach, were peppering the armored
train 200 yatds down the track. The
company found shelter in a fliotb.
Colonel Frederick Funston called for
volunteers tu cross the river and lhe
Oolonel himself. Lieutenant Hull,a private of Company li and a private of
Company F., Trumpeter Banfleld and
Corporal Ferguson of Company 1
crawled along tlio iron girders.
While this was going on, the meu
nf Company Ii from tho ditch wore
lusiludiiig the trenches in an endeavor
to divert attention, but Iho Filipinos
got the range from a treuch down ihe
river and the bullets soon spattered OU
the water under tlie structure, llnving
reached the broken span the small, but
valorous party of Americans slid down
tlie caisson swam a few yards to Iho
Bhore and crawled up tlio hunk. Tho
h lib* Colonel leading the way to tin*
trenches, while tho few remaining Fil-
iiiiniiH bolted.
Oolonel Funston said afterwards:
"It wasn't much In do. we know they
oould not shoot, straight aud that, our
Imys would attend to them while wo
were crossing."
General Hales' troops on the right
hud the hardest fighting, They followed the north bank of the river near Ihe
town from the east with the tlrsl Nebraska regiment on the left, and the
first South Dakota and the 51st Iowa
beyqnd, The country was mostly jungle,     but   tho   Filipinos   Btood  thoir
ground oven in the open spaces. Hales'
joined General Wheatou sot n after
noon, a curve iu the riv.-r enabling
the Americans to pour an enfilading
fire iuto the enemy's trenches.
About this time the cheers nf the
Kansas troops announced that the
Americans had crossed the river.
General Hales' men begun lo ford lhe
Ohioa, a branch of the Baghag stretching to the north, Tlio general him- '
Self plunged in up to his neck, and Ibe '
regiments all carrying Hugs floundered
aoross the stream. The guns of the
Utah artillery woro drugged over next
and formed into an extended Hue to
advanoe upon the trendies before Calumpit from which the Filipi'.os were
pouring continuous volleys. Tlio nrni-
ored car had one man killed aud two
wounded. Tho Kansas regiments
had three wounded during the, charge
and UiD Utah light artilleiy bad one
killed and two wounded. Most of the
other casualties befel the Smith Dakota
regiment. It is diffloult tn estimate
the insurgent loss but they had no
fewer than 70 killed, many of them
by the artillery.

THE BANKING CASE.
looting it.
We take it that the acting solicitor's
opinion was intended more as a compromise to relieve tho situation than as
a strict rendering of the law in the
case And as such it will be received,
no doubt, with general satisfaction.
It recalls tbe contending parties back
to the point of divergence, and enables
them to resume the fight on terms
free of all entanglements. No interest
is injured by a judgment of that
kind, and p3rhaps much ill feeling is
spared by it. At tho same time, the
Council should be careful to consider
that it is not its place to trifle with
the simple and absolute rights of the
matter. The solicitor quotes the wording of the statute, to the effect that
a resolution required a majority of
the members preseut in order to pass
it. If this is the literal rendering of
the law, the law is not only a very
arbitrary but a very stupid one.
In all deliberative bodies wherever
parliamentary rules and observances
obtain a member may be excused from
voting. If Aid. Thomson, iustead of
expressing a wish not to vote on the
resolution in Question, had asked the
Council to excuse him from voting, it
could not in courtesy or right have
refused him the privilege. And it
may be added here tint if all members
of municipal bodies were as conscientious as Mr. Thomson, and expressed
a reluctauce to vote when not snllici-
ently informed on tho matter at issue,
there would be a marked improve
ment in both municipal legislatiou and
administration.
In tbis caso he simply expressed a
desire not to vote, giving as a sufficient reason that he did not understand
all the merits of the question.
There was no formal request to be
excused and no formal leave granted,
but as tbe vote was taken without protest there was au implied excuse.
Mayors havo the privilege of voting,
but rarely exercise it. If Air. Neelands did not choose to do so on the occasion in question, it wus and is his
own affair. A resolution to carry requires a majority ot thuse voting, of
course, and every member present can
be made to vote ; the presumption of
the law no doubt is that overy member
present shall vote. But it is contrary
to every principle'.nf parliamentary us
age and procedure to suppose that a
���vote is of uo effect because, without
protest or objection, one or more members abstained from taking part in it.
That is not the law auywheie else in
the world, and we do not believe for
a moment that it was ever intended ti*
bo tho law here.
The Miner believes that the resolution to transfer the corporation account
from tho Bank of Montreal to the
Merchants Bunk of Halifax Standi good
today. The Council has agreed to regard it as void and nf no effect because
of irregularity. Wo do uot know that
any ono is disposed to quarrel with
this method of extrication ; hut as opinions do uot, invalidate resolutions, wo
would strongly advise the members of
the Council to put themselves on the
safe side by formally lesolviiig to reconsider tho whole question when ii
comes up again, as uo doubt it will.
To negleot thiB might leavo tho seeds
of future legal complications.
An   Alderman   at   Monday   night's
meeting   expressed the   hopo that  the
Couucil would   move   quickly   in the
matter of a street railway and that  it
would move   slowly   iu the matter  of
civic improvements.    If the gentleman
had  reversed the order  he would have
been much   nearer  tho   mark.    There
is uo particular hurry for a street railway which   we can do without if  we
have to ;but sower extension aud an adequate wator service   are   essential   to
the comfort and health of the City and
cannot be provided too soon.  As to the
street, railway franchise,   members  of
the Council might take   counsel   with
themselves     and     consider    whether
thirty-five years is not a  long   period
for a   oon tract,   especially   when   the
City gets   absolutely   nothing   for   its
concession.    If we grow as we expect,
this franchise ought ro be worth thousands to us before the City is ten years
older   to   say nothing   of   thirty-five.
Surely   it   was     in   connection   with
this   that  the   gentleman   meant   *we
should move slowly.
A few days ago there were, cabled
extracts from English papers, urging
the American people not to be cast
down by reverses in the Philippines.
One said: "We were discouraged after Isauriula, but wo aro beyond the
Zambesi all the same." A number of
the Americau editors did not know
what to make of this. One of them
bad it "Isau Dy La," but for the most
part they had the proper letters and iu
order, but frightfully disrupted, as
thus: "Isan Du La. " If one effect of
American expansion shall prove to be
the teaching of that country more of
the outside world than it has known
heretofore, tbe Philippines aud Cuba
aud Porto Rico will be valuable in more
than the territorial sense. The editors referred to had never beard ot
Chelmsford's awfully memorable engagement, of January 22, 1879. It
didn't happen be in the United States.

THAWING BY ELECTRICITY.
Says the Kooteuay Mail, Revelstoke:
"Seeiuy somewhere that it had cost
the City of Nelsou a very large sum,
nearly ���s-S.OOU, to repair and replace
ftozou water piues, we print this week
an article on their thawiuc by electricity. Tbe experiment wns successfully tried iu Revelstoke this winter
hy the manager of the local company,
and we have his assurance that it saved
considerable expense. As fm- ns known
this is the lirst test of the kind made
in this oouutry."
This is the article referred to:
The idea of thawing out frozen
water pipes by the use of electricity
seems to bave originated in some experiments conducted last March iu the
Wisconsin University by Profs. Jack-
sun aud Hood -, now the only wonder is
sv.ch a simple process was not thought
of before. An-ordinary incandescent
lighting circuit can be used for this
pin 1 use, provided, ot course, some
means are taken to regulate the
amount of current. This is done simply and t'll'ectually by inserting a resistance in the circuit such as a howl
of water or a coil of wire, which latter acts as a choke ooil, aud chokes
back the curient,preventing an excess.
The connections are very simple,
one wire beiug attached to the nearest
hydrant, the other to the pipe to be
experimented on. Of course to thaw-
out, say 100 feet of one inch pipe
means tlie expenditure of considerable
energy; in this particular example
experiments have shown that a our-
reui of 160.200 ampheies are needed,
which at a pressure of 50 volts is,
roughly speakiug, equivalent to the
amount used for 160.200, Hi c. p.
incandescent lights, or 111 other words
10.1 :J<.j horse power.
Six'-inoh mams have beeu thawed
out by ibis meaus, tin* otirient used
for 860 feet of pipe being 860 aiupheres
at 100 volts, or 17 horse power.
One odd result of the use of alternating current in this way is reported
from a town with a ground return telephone system, when* the application
of the current to lhe water mams
promptly called up every subscriber in
town.
Rovelstoke's experiments with frozen
pipes have In en so far highly successful,
the time taking in thawing them bo-
ing between ten and twenty   minutes.

The business men of the Oity ure
very determined that tlin.y sliiill no
Linger be compelled to wtay in their
stores from 1 n. in. till ni ii. m. nnd
thoy seem now in a fair way to mm
their ends Tbey met yesterday even-
ins ut the Hnur 1 of Trade rooms and
most of the prinoipal firms wero rep-
resented, there being present, MessrB,

M. Des Brisay, T. Madson, T. ,1

H. Wallace, Morrison. Martin O'Heilly,
Hvde and Shaw.
After Mr. J. Weir bad been chosen
cliiiiriniiii. and Mr. Fred Irvine senre-
tury of the meeting, Mr. T, J. Soanlan gave an account of the work of
tlm oommittee nppointed to wait on
Messrs Hyde St Titsworth unci t**y
and net their signatures to tbo early
olosing agreement. He stated tbat Mr
Hyde hud expressed his willingness lo
sign provided he were permitted to sell
fruit after 7 p, in. As proof of his
good faith in the matter, he -suid lie
would lock his doors, and soil the fruit
through a sliding window, but lit*
guaranteed neithei to sell nor to take
orders for groceries after hours. This
was considered quite satisfactory by
the meeting. As nobody either from
Hyde St Titsworth or Donnelly &
Simpson was present Messrs J, A. Irvine and T. Madson wont out to try aud
bring themj in. On their return tbey
reported a most extraordinary interview with Mr. Simpson, That firm
bad agreed to sign providing Hyde &
Titsworth did, and Mr. Simpson was
told on what conditions Hyde & Tits
worth would sif*n, and was asked if he
would fall iuto line also. He flatly
refused, however, stating that he had
known Mr. Hyde a long time, and
more than insinnated that the latter
would not keep his word, Those present were much|incensed nt this gratuitous reflection on the honor of one of
their number, but it seemed to be tho
goneral opinion that Donnelly & Simpson's action in thus staving out would
hurt none but tlimuselv-'s, and that
they miL'bt safi ly bo disregarded. Mr.
Hvde came in soon after and willingly
signed tbe agreement with the understanding before mentioned,
A letter was then read from the
Thomson's Stationery Oompany stating that they would be unable to close
unless the Canada Drug & Hook company did so also. A disoussion ensued
which brought out the fact that tha
latter firm favored early oloFillg ideas,
and it v* as thought that some arrangement ci.uld be come to whereby they
might agree to close everything but
the drug department. So the matter
was left to be settled aini.-ably between the two firms.
A motion proposed by Mi. DesBrisay
and seconded by Mr. Bbaw, that tin*
secretary be instructed to insert a no
tiee in the papers that on and after
May 1 all tbe stores will be closed ai
7 p. m. with the signatures  nttnobed.
Messrs. E\ Irvine and Wallace were
appointed a printing oommittee to ascertain the cost of the notices, and lo
get curds printed whichw'ill be posted
up iu tbe stores announcing the enrlv
closing.
Messrs. Morrison, O'Reilly, D. Me-
Arthur, S. Neelands and T. J. Scan
Ian were appointed a standing committee to interview uny new men who
may start up iu business here, and to
investigate any infractions of the
agreement. Tho meeting then adjourned fooling conliilont that now.
With the exception of Donnelly St
Simpson, the business men of Nelson
and their clerks will have tbeir evenings to themselves.
BBIGHT OUTLOOK FOK NKLSON.
Things are   Conspiring   Towards   the
City's   Prosperity.
Tbe average citizen felt on good
terms with himself yesterday. The
Miner informed him at* bis breakfast
table that construction would start at
once on the Lardo railway, that an
English oompany was anxious  to  put
a streeet railway line in Nelson thereby greatly enhancing the value of
oity property and putting considerable
money into circulation; that tlio Duncan Mines, Ld.,would take up its bond
on the Granite and Royal Canadian
properties and work  them extensively
and thut tbo City Council was wisely
grappling with civic problems by asking for power to borrow {85,000
and spend it. in permanent improvements in Nelson. This morning it
tolls of the bonding to an English company of twenty Toad Mountain properties all within live miles of tbe Olty
and that they will be extensively developed. Besides this some largo real
estate deals have recently been put
through and several more are now on
the tapis. News of those will be
made publio vory shortly.
There was a hopeful feeling around
town and the business men were sutis-
iled that, the outlook is very bright.
Greatest satisfaction wus found in The
Miner's exelusivo aiinouncoiiionts concerning the Lardo road and the Granite
and Uovul Canadian bond, while the
building of an eleotrio streot railway
line would be of groat benefit to tho
town the other works will be of universal boneflt to the district. Nelson
should reap immediate advantage of
from tho railway construction and the
dealers in lines that will be in demand began lo lay pipes for orders as
soon as they bad road Tho Miner.
All in all, the outlook is the brightest
in tho history of Nelson and as oue
citizen said yesterday things tbis summer should "everlastingly bum."
THE     FOUll MONKY   HY   LAWS.
Petition to the Oity   Counoil is Being
Largely Signed.
Tho petition to the City Council to
prepare by laws to raise |86 000 for
much needed publio improvements in
Nelson is now being circulated and is
rooniving a large number of signatures. Thore will be four iiyluws���
one asking for $110,000 for the water
works; ono of  |15,000 for sewer   con
struction ; oue of 116,000 for improving Ibe eleotric light, plant, and one of
$."1.0011 lor enlarging the City Hull to
make it snitabln for Hie City's business The petitions will be presented to Council at its next meeting
anil the by laws will then be given
tbeir first and second readingB after
wbioh'they will be submitted to the
people lor approval. This can be done
any time between ll) am! *.'l days after
their second reading. 11 three-fifths
of tbe votes polled aie in favor of the
bylaws tbey wiil be immediately put
through tbeir final stages by tbe Counoil and no time will be lost, in selling
the debentures.
Citizens generally recognize that if
necessary public improvements nre to
lie made money must be borrowed.
It will be seen by City Engineer Mo-
Oulloeh's report in another column
that the water system must be attended to without delay. The extension of
Ibe sewerage sysle-.t is also important
and improvements to tin* eleotrio lUlit
ing plant is something that must be
delayed uo longer. Early closing
movements arc aii right in some lines
but when applied lo electric light
for which tbe people pay tbey are a
nuisance, The City has now reached
that stage where it should possess
something more pretentious in the way
of a civic building. Tbe proseul qutir-
ters are not nearly large euough for
the growing work of tbo olliee si all'
and tlie $5,11(11) asked for can lie well
spent in enlarging the building by adding another story to it. Tbe City is
still away below its borrowing power
and has a much smaller debt than
uuy place of its size in British
Columbia. The additional $65,000

Jacob Dovor is strongly of the opinion that Nelson needs more advertising. When ho was Easl during Iho
past two months he found that most
people know but little of this progressive City and while away bo saw no
evidenoes of it being advertised. No
Nelson stocks wen) listed in the mining exchanges, lb' thinks that the

NELSON DAILY MINER WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1899.
ENGLISH CAPITAL
FOB TOAD UTAH
Important Deal has Just Been
Consumated,
IMPOKTANT TO NELSON
Twenty Toad Mountain Properties Have
Been Bonded and Will be Worked
Extensively This Season-
A deal of tbe greatest importance to
Nelson has just been consumated.
An English company has bonded 20
properties ou Toad Mountain and will
develop them extensively this summer.
All thu properties are within five
miles of Nelson. One of them is the
Dandy in whioh A. H. Kelly is largely
interested. The Miner could not ascertain the names of the other propor-
ties yesterday as the greatest secrecy
is being maintained regarding tin*
deal. From what could be gathered it
is evident that the company bonding
the group is either the Athabasca company or is lately made up of capitalists
who are prominent in the Athabasca
company. At all events the deal,which
been under consideration for some
months, has at last been successfully
put through aud before ninny more
weeks go by there will be gangs of
men at work on a score of properites
that are now lying idle. The number
of men employed will be very large
which will be of vast importance to
Nelsou. Work ou such a scale will be
of great advertisement for Toad Mountain miues and the Nelsou districl
aud,this deal should prove to be the
forerunner of many more that will
bring money and population to Nelson.
x'he first property to be worked will
be the Dandy. This -js a very we'd
known location aud is 4'e miles from
the Oity. It is one of the oldest locations iu the camp and adjoins the western extension ot the Silver King. It
has 700 feet of tuuuclliug aud tin re
is now between 300 aud 400 tons of
ore on the dump. It is considered to
be one of the richest properties on
Toad Mountain aud with systematic
working will undoubtedly become a
steady shipper this summer. In tin*
nineteen other properties bonded there
are both gold and silver propositions
aud out of them at least two or three
should become shippers before the
end of the year. The names of all tin*
group will be made public in the course
of a few days.
Yestcrilay a Miner reporter asked
Mr. A. II. Kelly as to the truth of lhe
report concerning the ileal. He was
evry reticent in giving any information but at last confirmed the report
and further said that a large statf o'
meu would be put to work on the
Dandy in a couple of weeks. Tho deal,
he said, is of ureut, importance to Nelson and would prove to be the lest
thing for the Oity that was ever put
through. Beyond this he would not go.
He appeared to be very well satisfied
with the outlook, however. Tin*
Dandy has beeu ono of his pet properties for years.
*   *   *
A group of four claims belonging to
Dr. Arthur, A. H. Kelly. R. S. Len-
ie and J. H. Love, 3 miles from Nelsou on the Hall Mines wagon road, has
just beeu surveyed by Mr. Ureen.
Thoy are gold aud copper properties
and preparations are being made for
considerable development work being
done ou thorn this season.
; It is repotted that arrangement,
hnve been entered ,into by the ].si*��/
Ohance and Noble Five companies
whereby they have agreed to allow
each other the use of their tunnels as
soou as they reach the Boundary lines
of the adjoining property. The Noble
Five will accordingly carry on tunnels
No. 2. 3 and-I,of the Last Ohance from
the points where they reach the end
line of the Last Chance, where the
claim abuts the World's Fair. The Last
Chalice will have the use of the long
crosscut in No. 4 tunnel of the Noble
Five, where it cuts the veiu at a \i*r
tical depth of 900 feet. The Last
Chance will also have the use of Uncross cut in A tunnel where it strikes
the Little Widow ground at a depth
of BOO feet and will have the use of
all intermediate drifts.-
