PROSPECTS OF
GOAT RIVER
Something About the Mining
possibilities of That
District.
History of Early Claims Staked and Operated on Goat
Mountain.
,l'V S3!

Nelson,   British  Columbia. Thursday.  July 4.  1901
Eleventh  Year
A Miner correspondent writes as
follows: Few mining camps have
had so many "laolteyeu" as the Gout
River district. The experts with hut
one exception pronounced the country
"no gond." Mr. .1. R. Parks so long
ago as 181)3 predicted a bright future
Im- (iinil Ui ver, but one thing and another followed in quick succession
so this district was left to slumber.
First there was the Slocan excitement ilien the slump in silver, then
Klondike, labor troubles, lead, South
Africa,etc.
In 1891 an Indian named Wild I.ouis
took from Goat Mountain to Mr. J. C.
Itykcrts. at the lioundary custom
house, Kootenuy Elver, 11. C., a piece
of solid galena that weighed proba'dy
25 pounds. Almost immediately there
was an excitement. The boys round
about had a look at his ore, sized him
up. made bids and in numerous ways
strove 10 get his secret but "no go.''
Tlie [lucky   parties   were  Jap   King,
I'hllbrlok, and Capt. Huyward, who
went out when the moon was high In
tho heavens and staked what is now
known as the Alice and extensions.
G11 the men's return from the locating
trip the country went wild-the result being that almost the entire
mountain was staked���the posts being
there to see to this day as a reraiuder
of the past.
Alter a  little   surface   digging   the
buys went to work and drove   a crosscut   tunnel, tapping   the   vein   at   a
depth of inn feet with  Gill feet of tunnel.    At the point of   intersection the
lead   showed   np     remarkably   well.
Drifts   were thereupon     run   on   the
vein north and south for 80 feet or so
���a good sized ore dump being the result.    Several good offers  were   made
for the property but the   owners  held
on.  Nothing   farther than   usual   assessments ' were   done in the succeeding years. In course of time the owners got tired waiting   for the   million
dollar   man   so   concluded    to     sell.
Gcoigc Alexander   of Kaslo   was   the
purchaser,   paying     therefor   a   very
tiiHng   sum.    Indeed   it   is   said the
price given would not   do  more   than
puy 'or the work   already  done   upon
the property.    However, in   turn   another transfer was  made and   it is at
this juncture Mr. T.G. Procter appears
upon the scene.    He   had   been aware
of this piece   of   property for  a   loug
time���and he had faith in Goat mountain.    Coining   up   with his  superintendent. Mr. John Ilampson,   to   look
into the Alice, the writer unwittingly
heard part   of   their   conversation on
their retirn from theii   inspection.
"Jack," says Procter,"we must get
that property and if there is not one
of tho biggest mines in West Kootenay in that hill I'm badly fooled."
"Get it by all means,"   said   Jack.
"If I   don't   open some of   those   experts'   eyes,   Wish   me   from  hero   to
'Frisco."
Tlie next itep  was the   installation
' of a small   force   of  men.    Some putting in their time  erecting   buildings
and a few doing some   drifting in the
lull   foot level.    Since   last   December
there has been a great deal-of development woik done. At the 250 feet level
a tunnel had   to be driven a   distance
of 540 feet to tap the lead from which
an upraise was driven to connect with
upper   works���a    Ehaft   having   been
put down 70   feet or   more.    This extensive  work was done  at a   remarkably low cost, indeed very  much   less
than is usually paid.    There are some
Tory dazzling sights in   that   upraise,
while in the   dri'ts   at   the   MO   foot
level it makes a man fe;"l as if he was'
iu fairyland to look at   the masses  of
ore.    The Alice is a   mine.    There   is
no discounting tnat fact and the   values of the ore   Increase   with   depth.
Much work must of necessity bo done,
but in the next   three   months   or   so
suflicient ground will be opened up to
keep supply regular for a long time.
I asked Mr. Ilampson,   the superintendent, why he did not go ahead and
shovel sonic if tiie ore out. His reply
waa,"Wail a lot my hoy and you will
i see something. Nothing gained by
| hurry. We'll hmp on opening her up
for souit time. ' That's true enough.
They aie limply sawing wood as the
saying goes, and keeping cool.
In nil probability the near future
will see a mill operated or. the prop-,
eily and un nerlul tramway to the
railroad is only a mutter of a short
time. Al present there Is a wagon
load built to the mine, the cost having been defrayed part by Government
and partly by the mine. This year, 1
believe, the Government intend to
spend _i.ou_ more on this road thus
making it serviceable both in summer
and winter.
The Alice ore goes exceptionally
high in lend tho I vo last tests going
80 and mi.7 per cent, respectively, the
silver values are low but the quantity
of orc'.tii treat ai d the small cost ol
mining nnd transportation will offset
to a great extent that part of it.
With the Impetus Ihus given by example nf tin Alice other properties
will no doubt be opened up.
It would be quite in order now for
the investor tu cast his eyes and incl-
dcnliul> h's shekels in this direction.
The sin face showings compare favor-
alby with those of othor camps and
the values much higher than many.
We have galena cies on Goat mountain that go pretty high in values���
100 to 108 ounces silver, 70 to 81 per
cent lend, and from $11.75 to 87.80, being assay returns of the Ibis owned by
G. Young & Co. The Edith on Goat
mountain has different grades of ore
some going away up to $117 in gold
per ton besides a percentage of copper und a small amount in silver.
There lire numerous properties on the
higher altitudes of Goat -Mountain
that should pay but so far the exploitations have been restricted almost in
variably to assessment work.
On the lower benches   of the mountain there are several very   promising
properties. The Show Down, and Full
Han',   Blenheim,    Black   Prince   and
Queen Anne is a group owned by   Mr.
(!. Alexander of Kaslo, and associates.
On the Show Down he has over a foot
of clean copper ore   that   goes 25   per
cent, copper   besides   a zone that carries considerable   erythrite  or  cobalt
bloom, ibe values being  high.    In all
probability     this    property   will   be
opened up this year and 1 prophesy   a
big surprise   for   the  operators.   The
ore is certainly   there   and    in   large
quantities.    A claim   that  can   show
25 pei cent, copper on   the surface has
a pretty   good   show.    On   practically
the same level as tbe   Show Down is a
group of claims   about   a   mile  from
Creston that have shown good results.
I refer to the   St.   Patrick   group   in
whioh the late Mr.   Couch   was interested.    Although there is no well   o'
any permanency done yet   in   a six or
seven   foot   hole   on   the St. George,
enough   good   ore was   taken   out   to
demostrate  her   value.    Half    a   ton
was sent to the Trail smelter for trial
and the returns   wero   approximately
lu per cent,   copper, 8 oz.   silver   and
81.70 gold pet ton.    The veins of   this
_roup ar. easily traced   for   long distance and are of   enormous   size,   the
ore   being     pretty   evenly    scattered
throughout   the entire   vein   matter.
There aie other sections   of   the Goat
River  district   of   equal  promise  on
which I will touch in a future article.
It only remains now for   the   capitalist to wend   his   way iu this direction.    I   know   that   he   can buy   or
bond   anytbi-g   in the camp  and a I
am   equally   well   satisfied   that   the
owners are not looking for exorbitant
| or prohibitive prices.   Tbe  man who
means business in this  camp   will be
accorded fair   treatment at the  hands
of tho prospect   owner   and of  course
the owner of the claims would   expect
a square deal in return.

In the report of tho Minister of
Mines of British Columbia for the year
ending December :11st, 100(1, there in
much matter of interest to the people
_f Nelson. The number of Crown
grants which were issued during the
year in Nelson district were 111,
Trail Creek 84, Slocan 103, Slocau
City 15, Goat River 10, Ainsworth 02,
Trout Lake 80, Lardeau 4, Arrow
Lake 5, making a total for West Kootenay of 101, of which Nelson district
gives nearly one third, ln East Kootenay dining the same period there
were 55 Crown giants issued, of which
Foit Stcele-got 35.
There were 1,701 certificates of work
recorded in Nelson district, during
the year, compared with Trail
Creek 5J0, Ainewoith 248; Goat River
401, Slocan City 037, Slocan 750, Arrow Lake 123, Trout Lake 458, and
Lardeau 320. From this it will be
seen that in Nelson district and in the
sections immediately tribnlary to it
what a lot of development work is going on in new properties.
Of some of the properties close to
Nels.n the report speaks as follows:
On the .Silver King, development
work amounting to 2,012 feet has been
performed under the management of
Captain J. R. Gilford. Very little
stoping has been done, but some 2,900
tons of oic have been taken out, and
during 1.901 large and regular shipments may be looked for. A considerable amount of machinery has been
installed, including two new boilers,
oue large double hoist and one large
duplex pump. The boilers have been
placed in tbe mine and an iron smoke
stack, 32 inches in diameter and 430
feet high has been erected. Sixty-five
men are employed at the mine and 75
at the smelter.
The Ymir mine is running its 80
stamp mill to its full capacity partly
by water power and partly by steam.
Several thousand feet of work hate
been done and a crosscut tunuel,
which will tap the lead at about 1,-
000 feet deep,has at present been driven a distanco of 800 feet. An aerial
tramway is used to bring the ore fiom
thc mine to the mill where about 200
tons per day are treated, The concentrates are being shipped to the Hall
Mines smelter. Power drills are used
and about 140 men employed. The
Ymir is a dividend payer and one of
the best, mines in the district.
Another dividend payer is the Athabasca, about three miles from Nelson.
Like the   Ymir it  is a  free   milling
property.    There is a   10 stamp   mill,
tramway   and   air   compressor, and a
cyanide   plant   is     Ijeing     installed.
During   tbe 11 months from   January
1st to December 1st, 1000, 1,500 feet of
development'  work   were done and 5,-
000   tons  of   ore   wtre   treated.    An
a/erage of 103 men are  employed, under the management of E.Nolson Fell,
Tho .Iranite Gold Mines, Ltd., operates tho Granite and Poorman   mines,
both free milling properties,   situated
about six  miles west of  Nelson,   On
the Granite mine 1,10s feet of development work   have   heen   done.    About
3,000 tons of ore were  crushed during
the eight   months   that tho  coinpany
was working the mine and on an average about 50 men wero employed.
'    At the Poorman   mine 1,250 feet  of
development   work   was  done.   Some
8,500 tons of   quartz were crushed   in ,
the Granite mill during the year, and
an average of 50 men   were employed.
Several Improvements   were   made to
the 20-stamp mill,   two Willley table.-,
were added and a small  trial   cyanide
plant   put   in   for conducting experiments.    Tlie concentrates are  sent   to
the Hall Mines smelter.
The Venus miuo is situated on
Morning Mountain, about seven miles
from Nelson. This is a free milling
gold property of which P. E. Poolit-
*.le is manager. One thousand and
thirty-two feet.of tunnels und 290 feet
of shaft have been made during the
year, and   a   rotary  mill haB been in-

THE   ARLINGTON.
A Slocan dispatch to The Spokane
Spokesman-Review gives the contents
of a circular nitice Issued to Arlington shareholders:
"We have noticed an article in several n-wspapers   lately,   which   stan
that this Company hud recently paid a
830,000 dividend.    We   would   simply
Bay that  there   Is uo authority whatever for this report, as   we   have   not
paid any dividend yet, and   when  we
do   all   registered   shareholders   will
be duly   and   properly   notified   from
this    office.     The     rumor   probably
arose out of a statement   made  to the
Engineering and  Mining  Journal  of
New York, that 820,000 had been puid
upon the  first   mortgage   debentures.
Yon   know, of   course,    that  George
Kydd, manager of the Royal Rank   of
Canada at Nelson, B.C., is trustee under the nioitgage of ull the   assets  of
the Company,und that it mould not be
possible to pay any dividends or make
any distribution  of profits to any one
other  than    debenture    shareholders
until   these   mortgage debentures are
all paid."

THAT CELEBRATION.
Let us hope that much of the ii donation that prevails today will subside before a year from today, for if
it does not we shall have seen the
last of those Dominion Day celebrations that have so distinguished Nel
son. On all sides one hears the opinion that thc management was "rotten " It may not have been per
feet in its working, but let v,s try to
be charitable enough to believe that
whatever failure characterised it was
oue to inexperience. This may be
difficult, and in some cases it will
perhaps be impossible. There was no
doubt a nasty spirit pervading tlie
management, a spirit that should be
as foreign as possible to such an occasion, and which men sensible ot thc
true character of it would never
dream of tolerating. We get an indication of tbis spirit in th? fact mentioned in Tbe Miner's repoit yesterday, where failure to publish the result of certain competitions wos explained by the statement that tbe
chairman of the committee having
them in charge, Mr. John Houston,
Wither by himself or through others,
refused to furnish the particulars to
The Miner.
We can mention another little circumstance in illustration of this spirit. There was a great deal of print-
lug patronage connected with thc celebration, and with Mr. Houston in
piactical control of the entiie management we may be sure no very great
care was taken to curtail it. One
piece of the work, the printing of the
programmes, was given to Thc Miner
ollice, and seme trouble and expense
wero incurred in preparing to get
tbem out. Suddenly und without explanation tbe job was taken from The
Mirer and given to Tbe Tribune,with
what artistic advantage will bu seen
by comparing this year's programme
with thut of last year. No reason
was given for this scurvy treatment
of The Miner, and if any exists we
shall be happy to communicate it to
our readers, if any member of the Kx
ceutivo Committee will do ns the fuvor
to supply il.
All clusscs of citizens contributed to
thc celebration. It was a town affair
up to the point of furnishing the
money. After that it became a fae
tion affair. Partiality was rampant.
The celebration was turned into a
glorification of Mr. Houston and bis
newspaper. Every dollar spent in
printing went to Mr. Houston's olliee;
The Miner was ignored. It docs not
com/lain merely because it got none
Of the patronage) so far as that alone
ts concerned it is inure amused than
otherwise. What we wish to point
out is thnt a ciuimiltce of manage
ment that permits itsell to be swayed
by a spirit of this kind is unlit for
the task it bus undertaken and will
Hnd It Impossible to give satisfaction. Much a spirit, sooner or later
Ih bonnd to kill any movement that
depends on popular favor. Tke Miner Is willing to live in tlie hope that
before the lapse of another year this
evil will correct itself, and that men
will be appoint-d to take charge who
can appreciate the fact that a Dominion Day celebration in Nelson is
foi all the people of Nelson.
The following citizens comprised the
Kxecutivo   Committee   of   the Domin
ion Day   celebration:    Frank   Fletcher, chairman;   (I.    W.  li.    lleuthcote
treasurer; II. Ii. Cameron,   secretary;
.lohn Houston,  II. II.  I'layfold. .1.   K
Strachan, B.W. Matthews. A. (I.(lam
tile, and Percy Chapman.    The Mine
extends n cordial invitation   to   these
gent lumen, or to any ono of   tb.'ni, to
make public explanation of tbe reason
why tbe printing of   tbe   programmes
was taken   from The Miner and given
to Mr.  Houston.
Hudson's Bay Company.
The opinion iz very pronounced
among the soberer heads of the community that a two-days celebration is
a piece of nonsenBe. Wc- can do all
the celebrating a rational being can
desire in one day. if we go about it
with any sort of judgment. There is
not another town in Canada that
gives up two days to it. The Americans aie quite us patriotically crazy
as Canadians, but in the whole of the
United States there is not a town that
takes two days to celebrate the
Fourth of July.
Thc (Iovernment at Ottawa is taking the proper eourse with regard to
that flag incident at Skagway. Thc
customs olllcer thorc had no authority
to raise the liritisli Hag, and in doing
it he committed a breach of etiquette
winch we need not be surprised to
linow was resented. There were probably circumstances connected with
the incident tbat were calculated if
not intended to cause irritaton, nnd
in repudiating the act of the official
tbe Secretary of State puts Canada
right. If there was rudeness on the
other side, let the Americans wrestle
with the odium of it.
The Dominion Day celebration at
Urai.d Forks uttiacted over four thousand visitors fiom outside points.
The visitors to Nelson would count a
great many less than that number,
and Nelson celebrations have been
celebrated for years. We had, too,
the advantage of un extia attraction
in the shape of a circus. The difference in numbers can be attributed
only to the difference in management.
(Irani! Forks advertised liberally and
with judgment, and created an interest throughout, the adjoining country;
Nelson sat down and folded her arms
and crooned to herself, content to cater
to her own amusement.
The strangest thing about the
Northport trouble is thut no one appears to understand what is at the
bottom of It, Mr. A. II. MacNeill, of
Kossland, has been discussing the
matter witli a Spokane leporter. He
said: "It is generally conceded that
this closedown had been ordered by
the London management. There is
some talk that tho closedown of the
smeller anil the mines is a part of a
stock-rigging job. Many people who
reject tills theory believe that the
management is trying to provoke
trouble with tlie men in the hope of
getting a light. According to these
piople. the companies wunt a light in
order to get an excuse for cutting
wages. Tho llosslund miners do not
want trouble. They are the best pain
and most prosperous mechanics in the
Northwest. By bard work for eight
hours a day they manage to average
about 81.-".' a shift. They are perfectly satisfied with conditions, and they
will not strike unless forced to do
so.''

. TRACKMEN'S STORY.
The Miner has been requested
publish the following:
C. P. R. Trackmen and all members
of Organized Labor Unions:
Brethren and Fellow Laborers.���I
h_ve investigated the much to be regretted engine wreck at Cranbrook,
B. C, in the interests of the striking trackmen and have been inforimd
by those most interested, viz, the
engineers and firemen, that tbeir fi'm
belief is tbat the wreck was not caused by the striking trackmen. All
trainmen and business men of Cian-
brook are of the same opinion. In
fact they told me that I could net put
this iu too strong a manner before the
public. Tbe trackmen of Cranbrook
are very anxious that this matter
should be cleared up, Uut despite the
fact that there are a few regular and
about one dozen amateur detectives
working on the ease no light has been
shed on tbe mystery up lo the present
date. The methods of trying to obtain information and the tactics pursued bv Komc of those would be detectives are u little coarse to say the
least of it. One man named Williams
being anxious to get the one thousand
dollars reward offered by Supt. Bury
for tlie apprehension and conviction
of tbe guilty party, approached one
of our men and in a hoarse side whisper gave him to understand that he
could earn 8600 in live minutes by just
giving this woulri-bc detective a
slight clue to work upon and in return he would divide the reward.
It is to the credit of that trackman
that he is not in prison for assault
and battery on the pei sou of that
would-be detective. Now 1 would like
to know hew it comes that ouch undue prominence is given in some local
papers to anything that may tend to
strengthen the position taken by the
C I'. R. Co. We read almost daily of
glaring falsehoods regarding the force
ut woik. The safety of the track
patrolled by men who cannot tell the
difference between a guard mil and
a claw bar, men who never worked
on a railroad and would not cow if
not induce- by the bait thrown out by
thc company to induce thcin to work
against the best interests of organized labor. Wc also see scraps of information turned and twisted in favor
of the C. P, Et, extracted and copied
from papsuckiug,subsidized pupers all1
over Canada. And all tliis time the
public is left in total ignorance of the
real state of affairs, that every traclt-
niai on fifty eight out of fifty-nine
roadmaster's divisions on tho entire
syhtem are out, that all hridgemen on
the Pacific division are out, that the
main line is blocked hy mud and rock
slides, that the Doukobor and Qallc-
ians are standing out for u living
wage, and the good citizens of Calgary have ereeted camps aud are feeding those men and assisting them !n
tbeir struggle for a living wage, thut
despite the best efforts of Mr. Niblock
and his oflice staff thut he could only
hire fifteen scabs to assist at clearing
slides at 81 per hour offered, that it
is the subject of conversation with
tho man iu the street at tho quiet and
ordei ly manner iu which matters are
being conducted by the strikers. The
completeness of our organization us
we huve four men us a protective
bourd on euch roadmaster's division
to conduct all'iiirs. 1 would ulso ask
what has become of our labor representatives who stumped,their respective constituencies us labor candidates. Are they putting forth their
best effort in behalf of the downtrodden laborer'.' If so why is it kept
-ccreV.' Arc they doing it behind
closed doors with press reporters burred out? Probably they think we not
only have to woik for small pay, but
will also bo deprived of our franchise.
It is curiuus how some men act under
curtain eiicuiustauces. We have on
the C. N. By. four roudmuslers who
are at most times truthful men, yet
today these men, who would be indignant ut beiug called liars or prevaricators, are going along thc road tell-
ing tlie strikers that thu men on other
divisions are all going back to work
and that they had better do so. Today
on the main Hue the same i",:_. is ho-
ing adopted; in some places 82.60 per
day 1g offered and refused. Now I usk
my readers tho question, why is It
thut the C, P. K. is so willing to
spend millions in loss to rolling stock,
premiums to scab labor, advauccement
in pay, without an agreement, anything before granting a slight increase
In wages and un agreement thut cun-
not be changed without sixty days
notice on either Bid;. Is it capital

ECHOES OF THE
CELEBRATION
Now that the celebration is a' 1 over
the public lias had time to quietly
tliink It over and make up its mind as
to how it was conducted. The chief
criticism is Hint the whole alTuir was
baclb managed. There was not one
department that was conducted with
any apparent idea of older and not
one against which a score of complaints couId not he justly registered.
It simply   proved   that the next time
Nelson undertakes to celebrate Canada's natal day the management will
have to bo in the hands of a thoroughly competent business mun with
good executive ability, who will have
nothing else to look after for n couple
of weeks, but the celebration. To
ask a business man, with many other
interests to attend to,to spend his time
in seeing that ull the brunches of the
celebration ure attended to is putting on the shoulders of that man a
greater obligation than he can cursci-
entiouslv cairy unless he is paid u
salary sullieient tu make it worth hiB
While to put all his attention to the
affairs of the celebration. The lake
is certainly one of the greatest attractions that Nelson has to advertise and
no expense should be spared to bring
its advantages before the outside
word. A mistake was made this year
in having the regatta nnd water cur-
nival on the same day as ihe boating
fraternity was interested in the races
and attending them left no time for
the proper decorating of the craft.
Next year the carnival will undoubtedly take place on the lirst night anil
the regatta on the second afternoon,
if tile governing committee is foolish
enough to bow to the wishes of thc
hotelir.cn in having a two days' celebration. It is the general concensus
of opinion that the lake attractions
cannot receive too much attention and
that their advertising cannot be too
extravagant. Nelson, to the outside
world, is u mountain to<vn built on a
rock and to bring before this outside
world that it has a water course unrl
vailed in the world will do a great
deal of good to the town. Bringing
the Winnipeg and Vancouver fours
here last year advertised Nelson more
than u do/en other celebrations with
water sports left out. would have
dune.
Something to be avoided again is
the sectionalism shown in the conduct
of the celebration. It is safe to say
that every citizen represents some
line of sport in which he is particu
larly interested und cure should be
laken to impress into service those
who are anxious for the success _of
these particular sports. To appoint
.lohn Smith to the chairmanship of a
committee because he is John Smith
and tbe friend of John Somebody-Else
is bad management, Mr, Smith
should only bo given coutiol of any
division of the labor because he is
thoroughly cupahlo of handling it.
Hut the whole question of management resolves itself into this���that a
man paid to do bis work should have
charge of everything, to report to a
thoroughly cupable executive committee. About four thousand dollars was
put up for this year's celebration and
with capable management u much better celebration could have been supplied for S:;.UI)tl. Money wns thrown
away in a most reckless manner us is
evidenced in the large outlay for Chi
ncso lanterns and paper dcorations.
Whose duty wns it to collect these and
lo store them for next year to save
the same amount when we have out
twelfth annual celebration of Confederation'.'    Apparently uo person's.
The   green    ink, whicli was used so
generously on the programmes that it
showed tr, u ,1) Ihe pages, was perhaps
bill   typical of   the   verdancy   of   the
members of the oommlttece,
Tlie liberal action of Ir, Lallan in
personally taking ull tbe children wbo
were on the Moat in tlie trades' procession to tlie circus and also treating
them to ice creiim, etc, was greatly
Appreciated by tlie youngsters, There

then never even looked at my baby."
"Such a crowd, and eo much fuss

A mining man   during his   visit   to
tlie city is said to have lost no   less a
sum than 81,OiiO at   the   eluiive   game]

dice   rolling   eleven   nnd   seven   just!
when he wanted   them   to.    However, I
they 'did   not   roll   that     way,   and
while he still   stuck at   it   with   the
prospect   of   ' Tlig   Joe"    and   lucky'
"Sev" coining up at every turn   these j
magic numbers seemed to miss connection   and his  pile   steadily diminish. I
