Ninth Year
AND STILL ANOTHER
It is Proposed to Erect Coke
Works Here.
THE SCHEME OUTLINED.
Two Hundred Thousand Dollars  Will be
Spent at Once aud a Large Number of Men Employed.
This boom busiuess still keeps, up.
It is in the air indjwill not down. The
up-to-date citizen picks up tha Miner
every morning now anil looks for the
latest big scheme chat is being hatched
out to help Nelson along. Tlie
Miners this week have boon a suones
sion of ivnnounceiueuts concerning the
street railway, big mining deals, ex
tensive railway construction and important *.real estate transactions. It
licked as if the supply of these choice
morsels was running short but it was
net so for The Miner can add another
delectable dish to its readers' breakfasts this morning. This timo it is a
coke making plant. It will be remembered that a few weeks ago the
Economical gas apparatus construction
company ol Toronto and London. Kng
land applied to the City Counoil lor a
franchise to put in a gas plant in Nelson. Since then Dr. P. E. Doolittle,
who is representing the oompany here,
has looked iuto the matter anil liuds
that this would lie a most advantageous point for cokeworks. At the spec
ial meeting of the council tomorrow be
will be present to urge the Aldermen
to grant the franchise asked for. In
the manufacture of coke a groat deal of
gus is generated and tbis he aims to
supply to householdi rs for heating
nnd cooking purposes, thereby using
all the output of tbo works. To dispose of this gas it IS necessary to lay
mains ami to do this the franchise is
sought. His company is prepared at
once to proceed with the construction
of the works wbioh will involve the
expenditure of $2(10.0(10 which, in itself, to say nothing of tho operation
of ilm plant, will do Nelson au immense amount of good. If the Council
favors the application,the by law will
be submitted to the people together
with the money and street railway
bylaws. One feature of the coke proposition that will make it popular
with taxpayers is, that uo exemption
Ironi taxation wiil be asked. The
eompauy will enter Nelson to do business,aud will do it on busiuess principles, bein:: prepared to add to the assessable value ot tho City and pay its
full share of tbe taxes as soou as it
is called upon to do so.
Tie Economical Gas Apparatus Construction Co . propose if the City
grant tin m a franchise allowing them
the use of the streets for laying
maius, to erent a lar-io plant for the
manufacture of coke and aro prepared to spend at least $200,000 in erecting aud equipping a thoroughly up to
date coke and gas plant. Of this
amount at least }76,000 will bo spent
in Nelson for labor in eroding the
plant, laying street mains etc, and
when completed it will givo continuous employment to at leaser 25 bands,
Gas will lie supplied whore wanted
for lighting but it is expected that tbo
main output of gas vill be for cooking
ami heating and tbe supplying of power for manufacturing purposes.
The establishment of this industry
will mean that tbe coke used in tbo
smolter will be manufactured here in
Nelsou and tho money earned in wanes
in its manufacture will be spent here
also.
The supplying of gas power will enable small manufacturing concerns to
operate cheaply, and will greatly
help iu building N"lson np as an Industrial centre. So largely is gas now
used for heating and oooking that in
Toronto where ton years a*o over 140
miles of streets wero lighted by gas
which has sinoo been displaced by
electricity which is also largely
used for lighting, tho gas consumed
has doubled in quantity, With onr
short hot summers the advantage of
gas for cooking can scarcely be overestimated, and this is a point which
should appeal to every householder.
Anyone who has had a houso in tho
East fitted with gas oooking and heating will realizo that this means more
to tbe comfort of the citizen and the
lightening of the burdens of domestic
duty to his wife than any publio con- I
venienco we have heretofore enjoyed, I
This company has a splendid record j
as constructors of gas and coke plants
both in Groat Britain and in tbis country, and are prepared to immediately
eonimenco operation and supply gas
before tbo cold weather sets in. A
Miner reporter interviewed Dr. Doolittle yesterday aud in a conversation
on tho coke question lhe Dr. suid:
"The establishment of u o.iking plant
here is one of the things like the discovery of a new mine winch greatly
benefits the locality and does uot in-
jure any other business. As the pros-
Bnt coke ovens are run by tbo initio
owners thoy will bo paid for their coal,
so will ho no losers wbilo tbo railway will get, haulage on coal instead of
eoko, a distinct gain to them, The
employment   of over a score of  hands j
will mean tho addition of quite a dozen families with tbeir trade genu* lo
the butcher, the baker and the grocer.
This means more houses to be built and
furnished and these with tbo value of
tlm plant will add considerable to tho
assessable value of the town, With an
electric lighting plant already installed here gas cannot compote with elee-
tiicitv for light,but in tbe matter of
oooking and healing there is no competition   whatever   between   them, as
i heat in only   generated   by electricity
as an accident of friction or resistence,
I and so can   never   become a factor   in
these  most important fields of domes-
I tic comfort and   eciinoinv.    Of   course
jin tbo production nf large quantities of
; coke, gas in excess *f tho   amount that
will probably be   n-ed for boating and
cooking will bo produced aud we   will
be prepiiron to supply   it to   any   who
may   want it   for light.    As  gas   has
largely   boon   replaced   by   electricity
for lighting purposes we do   not   come
in as   competitors   with    the   City's
lighting plant, but   will be prepared to
supply if desired   supplemental   power
lo the present   water   power for oases
of emergenoy or low water.'"

"A gathering storm chut had been

It is confidently expected that the list
of dead will roach between oil and (it),
if it dooa not exceed lhat. Almost a

characterizes all his undertakings.
The last troops forming his column
ouly readied Morzagaray today. The
men were badly played out and said
the last few days they have dragged
bullet carts over roadless jungles and
through swamps cutting their own

ANOTHER BATTLE.
Manila, April 27.-0:45 p. m.��� General MacArthiir's division crossed the
Kio Grande today and advanced on
Apalit, completely routing the flower
of the rebel army Most of the rebels
tied to Apalit statiou where two
trains were awaiting them. Tbey left
hurriedly, presumably for San Fernando. The towns of San Vinccnte
and Apalil wore burned and evacuated
by the natives, Twenty prisoners
were captured, including u Spaniard
The American troops also captured a
lirass cannon and u quantity of arms
and ammunition and they captured a
maxim gun on the railroad.
The fighting lasted from noon until
���1 o'clock. The Americau loss is one
man of the Montana regiment killed,
uud three officers and six men wounded. Tho enemy wero very strongly entrenched on the river bunk uear both
sides of the railroad bridge. General
Wbeaton seut Col. Funstou across
with two companies of the Kansas regiment, a couple of privates swimming
the swift stream with a rope under a
galling fire for the purpose of guiding
the raft. The meu crossed in
squads of 20 and attackod the left flank
of tho rebels. The rest of the rogi
ment was compelled to cross the bridge
iu single file along tbo stringers. All
Iho wooden work and muoh of the
iron work bud beeu removed. Tho
first Montana regiment followed tlm
Kansas across tho bridge. The first
Nobraska regiment, acting as a reserve
attacked the rebels on three linos of
trenches driving them out, killing 18
and wounding many. In the moan-
time u lurge body of Filipinos, estimated at no fewer than 8,000, led by
Geuoral Antonio Luna on a black
charger, that was evidently coming to
reinforce tbe rebels who wero engaged
with the Nobraskans, appeared in the
open field abont two miles to the left. ,
j Emorging from the jungle, the enemy |
formed in open skirmish line nearly
two miles long, with very thick reserves behind. They then advanced
at double quick till they were about
200 yards trom the American line
when General Wheaton ordered the
troops to fire. The rebels who were
evidently unaware that the Americans
had crossed the rivor, luoko and ran
in tho  direotion    of  Maoubelo,   The
other Filipinos fled toward Apalit
station. The heat in the early part of
the afternoon was terrific but a
drenching thunder s'orm which came
up later greatly refreshed the Americans.
COOPING THEM IN
Washington. April 27 ���Tho war department did not receive any information today from General litis respecting developments in the, campaign
about Calumpit. It is said now that
while it was part of the plan for Law-
ton, moving westward from Morzagaray, to take the rubles in tbe rear at
Calumpit, aud crush them between
his force and that of MacArthiir's
suoh was not the purpose of bis expedition, The principal object was to
clear llio country back to tho foothills
of the numerous small bodies nf insurgents who have been harrassing Ibe
country and making life miserable for
the American troops by forays at unexpected times and plaoes. It is believed that Gen. Lawton has fully succeeded iu this and that when he has
effected a juuotiou with MaoArthur
north of Calumpit, it will bo possible
to establish a comparatively short lino
of works across the oouutry and prevent tho return of tho insurgents
from the north.

Auckland, N. S. W., April 27.--U
Muliaugi, 12 friendly natives refused
to retire when ordered au I charged
into a burning village driving a number of rebels before them with splendid
reckless bravery, (jaunt's party then

ed tho bush. Tbo rebels had eight
men killed and many wounded.
Only oue of tho bine jackets ill the
cutter was wounded.
On April 17th a second battle was
fought at Vailele. The lighting was
desperate, tho rebels holding strong
fortifications which wore Ineffectively
shelled by the ships. The friendlies
advanced to tho attack with Kalioalcle
and Dana ou the left, Gaunt in lhe
center with 120 men and Tuamasanga
on the light. Gaunt's party delivered
such a heavy lire that the rebels retreated to a second and stronger fort
about ISO yards back. Tho Tuuniasan-
ga friendlies bolted but Gaunt crawled
out to tbo tiring line and drove them
back at Ihe point of his revolver. Tbey
then advanced to attack tlm second
fort but found the position too strong
aud lost several meu killed and
wounded. Ten shells from the rebels
sang a war song. After tho explosion
ot each shell, Gaunt again returned
the attack, and heavy and continuous
firiug on both aides followed during
which tbo attackers suffered further
losses. Gaunt sueeoclod in crawling t.j
within ii0 yards of the fort but found
it too stroug to capture us the friendly
Supports were unreliable. Tho party
then retired in good order with four
men killed and eighteen wounded of
which number three were mortally
WOUnded, The rebel loss was not Its-
ccrtaine.l, but was probably small.
The Tauranga and Porpoise shelled tin
position at sundown, but the result of
the tiring is not known, (taunt's brigade and a portion of (lie friendly support stood the tiro splendidly.
During the engagement i*aunt succeeded iu capturing a Geinian Hag,
which was flying over tho lirst fort.
On the return of the landing party,
Captain Stuart, of the Tauranga, signalled, "Well done Gaunt's Brigades" and the Americans and British
cheered tho returning party, whoso vi
vamliers (sutlers) wore proudly carrying the cupturod German colors.
The Oompany   bas  Already   Commenced
to do the Preliminary Work of
Construction-
Tbat the company applying to the
City Council for a street railway franchise meaus business was evidenced
yesterday when Mr. Halifax Hall,
civil engineer, took levels on Raker
street and Stanley streets with a viow
to preparing figures from which an
estimate of the cost of construction
can be in de So confident is tho company that the necessary franchise will
bo giveu. tbe preliminary work is being proceeded with us rapidly as possible so that no time will be lost in
starting actual construction as soon as
lhe people of Nelson p ss the bylaw
graining the frati.hiso. Tlie appearance of lhe transit and line on tbe
streeis made everyone talk street railway,and the greatest satisfaction was
expressed lhat there was an opportunity of securing such an enterprise,
not thai anyone was particularly tired
of walking bnt because a stroet railway in operation would be a good advertisement for Nelson and place it
undoubtedly at the head of any of the
u tenor  cities.
While everyone seems to be very
anxious to secure tho road, the general
lei-ling is lhat the Council should go

leisure. However, those representing
the company have shown a disposition
to meet the expressed views of ihe
Aldermen and it now appears as if
there will lie uo hitch iu the negotiations, The question of the length of
[he franchise is freely discussed. At
lirst i!.ri years appeared to be a very
long time but it is now- mooting with
more support as it is considored that
tbe only salvation of the eompauy
lies in a long franchise, The company,
too, does not seem disposed to be willing to accept a franchise for a shorter
period aud thut is thu one point iu
tb dr application that they cling to
most persistently. Theit request for
exemption from taxation for 88 years
Iocs not meet with any support and
the Council will not grunt it,as a compromise exemption for teu years will
oo offered and will bo accepted. The
Couucil will insist upou a comploto
transfer system, cheap rates for school
children,uud other small details that
will protect the intcri-sts of the public. Tbe company \, i ! N> a'-ked to
commence construetii..! im. ill B0 days
after the bylaw is passed a*i 1 it ia understood that tbey aro perfectly willing to agree to tbis. Tho first line
oiiilt will be from the O. P. R. depot
aloug Baker street to BogUStown with
a branch line up Stanley street. This
will make up the two miles that thn
company will bo asked to havo completed and in operation this season
Ultimately another line will bo run
aloug Vernon street, forming a belt
line thut will include Raker street,
the cars running one direotion ou on1'
streot, and the opposite direction on
lhe other. A special meeting of thn
City Council will be held tomorrow
afternoon to discuss tbe matter and
come to un understanding regardiug
the contract to bo entered into between the City and the eompauy. It
is pretty well settled that tlio terms
will be in accorduueu with tho points
outlined above.

therefore, for a particularly hot contest in Manitoba this summer, in
which Federal blandishments and Federal intimidation will figure more
conspicuously than in any former experience.

OUR GROWING TOWN.
Nolson was never more hopeful than
it is today.    A   busy   season is  ahead
of it, und tho  activity of which there
aro evidences on every side means substantial prosperity.    The   new railway
construction to the north will not only
give us present benefit, but will   op* n
a country   that will always lie contributory to this City.    Important railway
work is in progress   to   the wost, aud
before the seasou   is   far advanced   we
uood not be surprised   if   aclive   construction   is   resumed   ou the  Crows'
Nest.     All   tliese   make for  Nelson's
permanent good, and   they all point to
the fact that this is and  will   remain
the great   railway centre of  Southern
British Columbia, and day by   day its
position as the miuiug  centre is beiug
more assured.    In addition to tlio railway enterprises already under way aud
in sight, there is   the promise of great
mining industry in the transaction just
concluded looking to tbe  development
of the mineral wealth of Toad   Mountain.    At   the  present   moment,    too,
there is before   the   Couucil   aud   the
people of the City a   proposal to introduce a tramway   system, that will involve the   expenditure of  many thousands of  capital.    All   these  indicate
a busy season. Aud   they   all poiut to
the    continued    growth   of   Nelson.
Looking forward to the expausi-jn  we
may reasonably expect,  it becomes the
citizens to stir themselves iu preparing
for the   increase   of    population.    No
one any longer has the least doubt that
Nelson is to be the leading City of the
interior.    In   this     expectation   it  is
our duty to put it in   order.    First  ot
all it must be well   watered   and well
draiued.    These   aro   essential  to the
health of the place, and if   we  cannot
promise health we do much   to  retard
tho growth of   the   City.    Wo   caunot

MANITOBA'S NEXT.
There have been some notable general elections iu Manitoba, young as it
is, but the campaign that is expected
to open soon promises to eclipse all
that havo preceded it iu interest aud
importance. It will be less a Provincial than a Federal campaign, and
The Toronto Mail may rest confident
that the Governmeut atOttawa will give
Mr. (Jreenway all the assistance it can.
And if tho Provincial Premier were
to express his mind frankly, he would
admit that he wants all   be can get.
Because Mr. O. O. Moody has seut a j
dollar to the City Couucil for the ereo-
1 ion of a mint here, tbe Colonist
thinks that there is no good reason
vhy the work should not be begun nnd
carried along as far as the money will
allow. The Globe has no objection
lo this, but it certainly will object if
money is squandered 011 au expeusive
site. There must be no boodling���

The play grouud is as distinct from
1 lie park as the freedom of childhood
1*1 from tbe conventional routine of
daily life. An effort has beeu made to
establish such small parks or play-
! rounds iu Vancouver, but it will be
remembered the proposal was voted
down. There is no doubt that those
v. bo were instrumental in the burking
of the proposal will rue it, bnt unfortunately for the present the evil has beeu
done. To have healthy children they
must have healthy places to play in and
tlie public streets with their microbe
laden ilnst is far from that. The
World ventures the hope that the idea
is not yet dead.���Vancouver World.

The   interest  in    the     approaching 1 be a member of   the   preseut   Govern
election is due entirely to the fact that
the Opposition is led by Mr. Hugh J.
Macdonald. Whether he or Mr. Green-
way should be leader of tho Govern
ment of Manitoba is not particularly
interesting iu itself, excepting to the
peoplo of that Province. It is the
widely prevailing belief that Mr.
Macdonald would not stop at the defeat of Mr. Green-way that attracts so
much attention to tho occasion. His
friouus who kunw his mind will say
that persoually he bas little political
ambition, aud they are probably right.
If left to himself bo would prefer tbe
quiet duties of his law practice and
the Booiety of his friends ami intimates. But he is not only the Bon of
hiB father; he ifl also a man uf brilliant
parts and much politioal sagacity, and
beiug loyal to his party he could not
resist the importunities of his friends
to take the leadership of the Opposition
in Manitoba. And should he be successful iu the coming contest-, there is
tbe prospect that the same influences
will carry him a step further.
Among his friends outside of Manitoba as well as in it there is a strong
desire to sou him the next loader of
the Conservative party of the Dominion. He muy draw the line at that,
and, -win or loso, positively refuse to
budge a foot out of Winnipeg, We
suspect they ure very i��w who know
his mind on that point. But there is
nu opinion throughout the Dominion
thnt he would tako the position if
pressed upon him, and that it will bo
pressed upou him is certain if he Should
be successful in his contest with Mr.
Greeuway. Thoy know this at Ottn
wa as well as it is kuown elsewhere,
and therefore it oomns that the next
fight iu Manitoba will not bo so much
to keep Mr. Green way in the Premiership as to keep Mr. Maodonald out of
Dominion politics. Going fresh from
a victory in Manitoba would make him
a formidable leader of the Conservative party, and tlio ruling power at Ottawa may be reokouud on to spoil  tho
iiient.'

Charges kiiii Alive.
Sir Charles Tupper replies to the
demand of Major Walsh that ho shall
prove his charges by making new
ones and putting them in as definite a
f* inn as anvouo could desire. Ho also
dcch'.rcs his readiness to prove them,
if a suitable court ot enquiry be
charged with tho work. The objection
made to Mr. Ogilvie is that, besides
now occupying a subordinate position
under the Government, he has not the
lrgal knowledge necessary for the
oondnot of the enquiry. The question has dwindled down to what sort
of commission shall have charge of the
business. Mr. O rilvie, it seems, is n
relative of tbe Minister of the Interior, but even those who mention the
fact in connection with his want of
qtialificatinu do not impeach bis lion
osty, aud ir they suspect, that tho oon-
iii'ciinii would produce a ceilain bias,
which is evidently what thoy mean,
they do not quite say bo. ��� Toronto

BOARD OF WORKS
WHAT HAPPENED   AT  THE  MEET-
ISO YESTERDAY.
0 miicil Will Try and Settle the  Dispute
with the Msoii Land Improv
ment Oo.
A meeting of the Board ot Works
was held late yesterday afternoon nl
the City Hall, at which there wore
lu-ns'iit tlm Mayor, Aldermen Thomson anil Fletcher, uud Oity Engineer
MoOulloch, There wns not a great
(leal ol' business trnnsnoted, several
matters being laid over until tlio uext
sittings. A oontraet for laying 3,200
font of sewer wns, however, let. Josiah
Thompson being sui'i'i.sst'nl with n bid
of $1000.
It wus also deoided to lay a wnter
pipo to Mr, Theo. Mailson's bouse ou
Mill Street, This request has been
before the Oontioil for somo time.
Six thousand one hundred feet of
four and six ineh pipo have been reoeived by the Oity nnd wen being unloaded yesterday, aud it wns deoided
to start, at once liiyiuR the proposed nil-
I'itinns to tho distribution plnnt of lhe
water works system. The pipes will
be laid by day labor, and John Muuro
will be foreman in oharge. It will he
remembered that Mr. Monro secured
the contract of lay ing the pipes last
year, and the year before be was also
in charge, so ha thoroughly understands the business.
The next question was that of compensating the Nelsou Lunil Improvement Oompany for the land oooupied
or supposed to be damaged by tbe Oily
reservoir. The matter has been dragging now for nearly two years anil the
oompany is pressing for a settlement.
It will be remembered that in Ihe
early summer of 181)7. when the reservoir was being built, Mr Joshua
Davis, the representative of 'he Company, approached the then Oity Counoil asking compensation for the tlnin-
nge whioh he alleged was being done
to his company's land, and also for
the land actually oooupied. the oity
made him an offer, which he refused,
Negotiations ensued. Mr. Davies constantly putting np his price with the
rosult that it was impossible to do business with him. After a wbile the
matter came before the courts.ami the
City paid $700 into court. Tho case
never came lo trial, as arbitration was
decided upon, and the SfioO was rntiiiii-
ed lis the then O'ty Solicitor in payment of costs due him. After Rome
disouasion it was decided yesterday to
submit the affair to arbitration aud
this time to try and get the matter
settled.
To give some idea of the exorbitant
demands of tho company it may he
slated that ouly six lots are really
affected, which would make the Oit\ 's
offer equivalent tn over ��\'M a lot. In
1897,abont tbe rime the troiiido originally arose Mr. Joshua Davies held nn
auction sale of some of the lols
held liy his oompany, ami those in the
neighborhood in question did mil
average $50 apiece. Thus tho oitv
offered more than double the inarki;
prioe of the land at the time it was
taken up. The oompany, it is true,
alleges that a much larger extent f
land, was depredated in value
but those who know the grouurl
and the facts, are of the opinion
that the offer was a handsome one. anil
that the company wns endeavoring
to bleed tlie Oily.
tlio tenants to disoover sc suddenly
anil rudely that thev live in n hole.
Another sample of the eccentricities
of the levels of some of Nelson's streets
was discovered yesterday, A will
known oitizen, of hu enterprising nature, bought a couple of lots and pro.
posed ereoting a resilience for himself
thori'O;. He was quite sure about
the ievel question whim bo made the
pnrohase but now he discovers that
to niiike the sidewalk strike tlie proper
part of bis bouse he will have build a
stone wall sixteen feet high ami erect
his house on it. He is not infatuated
with this lighthouse style of architecture so be is endeavoring to quietly dispose of the lots to some unsuspecting
individual of lottv ideas, while be
looks about for a sidewalk of a less
ambitious nature beside which he can
build an ordinary looking residence,
The   sheet   level question is one Hint
should receive the close attention of
builders so that a greal many ups and
downs will b * avoided The several
miles of new sidewalks that will be
la ii io grade ibis summer will no
doubt lead to many complications as
thers are semes of ihe older buildings
in Hn* Oity Umi have been erected
without any regard tn Ihe slreet level.

of Mr. Clarke Wallace nnd Mr Mackenzie Bowel! for the position of organizer, The political prospects of the
party were discussed and a considerable variety of opinions expressed as to
what should be done to rehabilitate
the party in the Province of Ontario.
Ii is the pretty general feeling tbat

With Two Tenants.     "
Building sidewalks to grade will
load to some complications in the
Oity, At prosont an eight foot walk
is being constructed up Joseph inn
Btreot and between Oarhunutc and Mill
stroet it crosses a dip. At tho bottom
of tbis dip and on a level with the old
siilewalk, are located an Italian fruit
store uud a cottage. The new sidewalk scorns the bottom of the din and
likewise tbe fruit store and the cot,
tags, So tho way iratters stand at
present, the walk is 011 a level with the
top of the door of the fruit Store anil it
is quite an eaay matter to sten from
tbo sidewalk to the roof of Iho cottage.
Whether tho Italian will put in a hvh-
tom nf trap doors and ladders for the
convenience of his customers, and the
cottage owner will rot a holn in his
roof to provide a handy means of in-
gresH and ogress, or whether both will
pnt their liuildings on stilts and bring
them again into civilization are iiucs-
tions that are boing warmly discussed
by the residents on the streot. All
agree thnt it is rather  bard   luck  for

A FAIR BUSINESS
Review of the Operations for
the Week.
STRIKE ON WONDERFUL
Oapt*
0- H* Thompson Explains how the
Vein   Was   round.*���Kelson
Mining Transfers-
The stook niarkot this week has
maintained a healthy tone, and a fail-
amount of business has been done.
though tho transactions havo been devoid of any sensational features. A
uotatilo feature of the local market bas
been tho KrowiuR demand for Republic and Boundary stocks, more especially the former. Several local speculators have made money out of them,
and they are viewed with considerable
confidence.
Probably the best buy in the market
today is Athabasca at their preseut
price, 46 cents. This stock has considerably stiffened of late, aud the
mine never looked better. Two thousand two hundred and fifty shares have
changed bands at tbe above price in
the past two days. Exchequers are also firmer, and a block of 1,000 was
sold yesterday. Palo Alto (RepublicI
are also a good buy, aud are rising
steadily. A block of 7000 was suid ill
town the other day at tliree cents,
but they have since risen half a cent.
Little Cariboo (Bouudary) is also considered a good ijbuy, aud is in strong
demand. Several blocks of this stock,
varying from 1,000 up, have changed
hands recently at 8Jjj cents. Slocan
Stars at $1.30 are also attracting attention, and a big block of these was sold
this week at the above; price. Winnipegs (Boundary) have also stiffened
considerably of late, and have risen
from 27 cents to 80 cents in the last
few days, and there has beon considerable inquiry for this stock.
There has been considerable interest
aroused over the recent strike in the
Wonderful mine, and Oaptaiu O. H.
Thompson who has just visited tho
mines gives the following interesting
account of tha strike :
"Some one who worked tbe mine iu
former days discovered the vein and
then covered up the discovery. I iln
not know who did it, so am uot reflecting upou any one iu particular.
We camo upou it by accident. We
were led to explore the old working.*-*
through having our suspicions aroused
that something of value might be in
them. Not long ago a miner came
to Superintendent Davis and wanted
to secure a lease upon a specified section of the mine, agreeing to pay a
royalty upou all the ore "he could find
there. The lease included tho old workings in the drift. Mr. Davis told him
a lease was out of tho question and
after he hud gone the superintendent
began to think about the matter and
at last he concluded that au investigation was necessary. He cleaned out
the drift, taking out much dirt that
had evidently beon carted in there,
Finally he came to a point where the
lagging along the wall of the drift was
fastened up with big spikes. That
looked suspicious nnd ho opened it up
aud fouud that ore had beeu stoped at
tho side of the drift three timber BOts
high and 18 foot wide. The sills n*st
ou vein matter and ore. The stupe
had been partially tilled with dirt,
which Mr. Davis thinks had been
wheeled in there,as the timbering was
too close to permit of its having fallen
down. It wns no easy task to clean
the place out, hut wo have about got
through with tlio work and have taken
out two carloads of shipping oro which
we found bidden in the stupe. Aver
ago assays uf this ore show it to carry
188 ounces of Bilver and 70 per cent
lead.
"Tho vein there is clearly defined.
Its presence at that point proves tbat
tho tunnel was run away from it
rather than toward it. The vein has
also heen exposed liy tho hydraulic
work that has boon done upon the
olaim, It shows there exactly where
it should bo if our calculations as to
its presence near the portal of the old
tunnel is correct. Ah soon as weather
will permit wu shall start a force of
men at work upon the surface of the
vein at this expused point. A drift
can lie run into the hill gaining depth
ou tbe vein. Hut we are nliout to
tap this vein at a vertical depth of
Ilia feet. I expect to have the news uf
the strike at any timo. This tunnel has
boon running in fur suine time and
has reached a point 600 feet beyond
the portal It has crossed a clay seam
ami is io feet Into porphyry formation,
This is a duplicate of the formation
through which the Ruth tunnel passed
before it came into the vein. Beyond
an feet of blue porphyry the Kuth
tnnnol ennio into the vein of clean
shipping oro. Wo aro in the same porphyry, and aro Hearing a point wher,i
we expect thn vein to be. Altogether
the outlook for the mino is inust favorable.
