To the Officers and Members of the B.

Dear Sir and Brother,���The undersigned general chairmen herewith submit the following report for your consideration. In compliance of request
the members of our organizations,
met in Montreal on Thursday, August S, 1001 to renew efforts whioh
some of the general chairmen had
made towards obtaining the consent of
the company and maintenance of way
men for the general chairman of the
five organizations to act as conciliators in the present dispute. Our services being accepted by both parties
we took up the duties of Conciliation
Board. After Several interviews had
heen hold between the board ofconcilia-
tion, the company and committee
reprcsentng the trackmen, we succeeded m obtaining a basis of settlement which wc beloved to be reasonable and fair, uuder the present conditions of the strike situation and
represented that it bo accepted by the
trackmen, explaining to tbem that
the terms submitted were equal to
those obtained by any of the other organizations ia their first offorts to
obtan recognition. After tho terms
of the seltloment had heen fully explained to the Trackmen _and a vote
taken by ihetn, tho following lettor
was preseontd to tlie board of conciliation i by the chairman of the trackmen :

The terms of the settlement proposed by the general manager of the C.
P. R. company through your committee to the committao repiesenting the
maintenance of way men is not considered a fair basis of settlement. We
believe a board of arbitration composed of fair minded men would render a
decision more favorable to the men we
represent than has beon prepared by
the general manager, therefore, '<ve
will request the member", of the conciliation committee tu recommend
that the matter bo BBttlud by arbitration.
Hoping it will he consistent with
the viewB of the members of your

cffoits made to bring abont a proper
understanding and fair settlement,
we aro very truy yours,    (Sgd.)
J.  LENNON, Chairman,
A.   F. STOUT, Secretary.
Wc, as a board of conciliation,  feol
that our   duties   as  mediators    have
ended and that nothing further can
be done by ns, unless President WiL
son of the I!. B. T. of A. will agree
to leave the city within twenty-four
hours aod not to interfere in any way
with either ooramitteee and will give
authority to the trackmen's committee to declare the strike off when
in their judgment a reasonable basis
of settlement can be effected.    (Sgd.)

Corporation SaysStrlkers Are
Near Flood Tide and Ebb
Will Soon Gome.
Pittsburg. Pa., Aug. 10.���The center
of interest in the steel strike shifted
to the west where Joliet finally swung
into line with the strikers and Milwaukee appointed tomorrow as the
time ond place for a final vote on the
question. The news that came out of
the west cheered the strikers tbough-
out the districts in this vicinity as no
other developments since the labor
war was declared. They count upon
favorable action ai Milwaukee tomorrow and say thai they will yet win
Chicago over. These successes, they
declare,will make tbem masters of the
situation and win the stiike.
The steel operators, on the other
hand, say the strikers are nearly at
flood tide of tbeir success and when
the ebb comes it never can be stoppsd.
They also claim that many of their
men, particularly at McKeesport,
Wheeling and Bellaire, were forced
out by intimidation and will oome
back as soon as the excitement dies
out and their safety is assured; Talk
of terms has been dropped for the
time being and it is agreed that in Its
present aspects the sitnation indicates
a prolonged and stubborn contest.
Two hundred men employed in tbe
national galvanizing of the National
Tube Co.,at McKeesport, struck today;.
They were the last remaining workmen in the affected trades in that city
und the tie up is now as complete as
possible there. Many of the tube
workers, although on strike, have refused to join any union and the opinion is expressed that there will soon
be a break among tbe strikers.
INDIA'S   FINANCES.
Lord George Hamilton Piesents Annual Statement to the Commons.
London, Aug. 16.���Lord George
Hamilton, Indian commissioner in the
House of Commons, today presented
the financial statement for India.
He Baid that in spite of three years of
famine and acute depression in the
three agricultural staples, tea, indigo and cotton, he was able to present
the most favorable balance sheet since
India came under the crown. The
elief expenditure in the year totaled
��15,000,000 but the same period showed a Burplus of ��0,377,000. Thc season's rain, though below normal, had
been suflioient for agricultural purposes. The crop outlook was fair
and there was a piospcot of a material reduction in the relief expenditures. The results of the gold standard policy had more than realised the
Government's expeet-tions.
Lord George concluded with a prayer that the administration ot Lord
Curzon, of Keddleston, as Governor
General of India, would continue to be
prosperous.

History of the Iron Properties
Purchased by Montreal
Syndicate.
A Man Who Has Stuck to the
Goat River Mining
District.
The iron claims whioh were transferred to the big Eastern syndicate
for $80,000 cash on Thursday of this
week were staked by C. P. Hill, in
the summer of 18U3. He thought he
had the biggest copper propositions
under tbe earth, and that the immense
ilon dike was bnt a copping over tbe
oopper. He continued to think tbis
way until this year when the diamond
drilling proved that the iron went
awuy down and showed that there was
nlocopper in the neighborhood. Since
the claims were staked he has manipulated them somewhat by disposing of
various interests in individual claims
and every cent he has received has
gone back into tho ground in development work. Four years ago be disposed of six claims to the .London &
B. C. Gold Fields which company did
considerable work, driving a 250 foot
tunnel. The company acquired these
claims two at a time. A short time
later he disposed of cne third interest
in throe claims to a syndicate composed of fifteen Nelson people represented
by F.W. Peter9 and one third interest
to another syndicate of fifteen represented by S. M. Brydges. E. J. Matthews and Mr. Hill retained the remaining third interest. The six
claims,which completed the lb acquired by the Montreal Syndicate, were
owned outright by Mr. Hill. In January of this year he bonded the properties owned by tbe London & B. C,
and the two-tbirds interest in the
three other claims so he acted as vendor for the whole group. James D.
Sword helped matters along in t e
East. *
The ledge, which varies from 50 to
200 feet in width, takes a diagonal
course over a mountain that resembles,
in contour, the extremely hideous one
across the lake from Nelson. The
apex of the mountain is 0,200 feet
iiVovo sea level and tbe ledge runs over
its highest point. It iscootained within well defined granite walls.
Mr. Hill nas another group of 15
claims on the same lead and he expects some day to make a big deal
with them. He is positive the deposit
is large enough to warrant (he erection of large iron and steel plant.
"I began to get tired of gold and
silver mines," he said yesterday,"and
staited alter iron and coal just for a
change. I think the deal Swill do au
immense amount of good to the conntry as with the depression exitsing in
other branches of mining, the establishment of laigu industrial enterprise will put B. C. in a new and favorable light before Investors."
It was on the 13th of April, 1888,
that Mr, Hill first entered this country. He had a party of six men with
him. Tbe guide was Benny Benson,
now of Greenwood, and another member of the party was Tom Coffee, who
later went to Rossland, discovered
mines and wealth, and is now vegetating in the Klondike. The party
came in by Jennings, Mont., and followed thc Kootenay river to Ainsworth and what Is now marked on
tho map as Nelson. They stopped at
Kootenay Falls, 52 miles east of 1km-
ner's Ferry,for a while and then went
oil overland to Fort Steelo and from
there down the river lo Jennings.
For three years Mr, Hill managed
to stay away from this country and in
1801 he came back, He staked the
whole Goat river mining district,mure
or lesi, and still has a large slice of
It recorded in his name. He bad the
copper bee in his bonnet and worked a
few claims in tbe hopes of finding
that metal but was unsuccessful. On
June 20,1803, be was appointed deputy
collector of United States customs at
Port Hill, which was named after him,
and he resigned that position on
March 31st lust year, from which time
he has given all bis attention to the
iron properties and eoal lands. His
men discovered several rich coal deposits which are now being worked.
S. W. (iebo is developing one of the
deposits and Is shipping 500 Ions a day
the most of which goes   to   the C. V.
R. Quite a town bas sprung up at the
mine but as yet It has no name. Mr.
Hill has 3,200 acres of coal lands and
he will shortly put men at developing
it. Be also has several metalliferous
claims, on most of which work is being done. He has a very blustery
and tempestuous group composed of
the Whirlwind, Toruado and Cyclone,
which have a rich copper and galena
showiDg. They have 12 feet of good
ore.
Mr.Hill thinks that in five years the
Goat River district will be one of the
biggest shipping districts in the
Province.
PROGRESS   OF   ROAD.
Rapid Work Being Done on Wagon
Road West of   Nelson.
Government Engineer Killeen le-
ports that good progress is being
made with the Nelson-Granite wagon
road, the first mile of which is now
completed, and the second is nearly
finished. One of the many good points
about the road is the splendid grade
tbat bas keen obtained, making heavy
hauling much easier than could be
expected on a mountain road. The
average grade for the whole road is
four per cent. There is one short
section where the grade is nine per
cent, and two others, none more
thun a quarter of a mile long, where
it is eight per cent, and to counter
balance this there is a stretch where
it Is less than two per cent, giving
many fine reaches for driving, when
thc loose top soil has be^n settled
by a little ruin.
The foreo at work on the road,
comprising nt present about 40 men,
are spread out over about half a mile,
two miles from the city. A few are
drilling and blasting a small rocky
portion about a mile and a half from
tbe_ city. When this iB completed
the seoond mile will also be open for
traffic as the bridges are being put in
at the same time as the grading is
being done. After the first two miles
are, done, the next conple of miles
will be comparatively eaBy, as there
is little rock. As an example of what
a splendid grade has been obtained,
the lower end of Baker street from
Kootenay to the C. P. R. depot is
11 per cent, while the steepest part of
the hill going up to the bench on
the new road is but nine, Mr. Killeen said that the* road would undoubtedly be of great benefit to the
city as it put in connection with��� it
all the rich mineral region between
Sandy and Rover creeks. There are
many abort branch roads from the
various mines, with all of which the
Government  toad will connect.
Tbe heat has been felt rather severely by the men at work, especially
during the last few days, but there
have been no cases of illness. The
camp is situated a mile nnd a hnlf
from the eastern end of tho road, and
is in a pleasant location with plenty
of good spring water available.
From Nelscn Mr. Killeen leaves for
East Kootenay where a bridge across
the Elk and a short wagon road, to
connect with another road up the
valley, are to bo put in near Michel,
on thc line of thc Crow's Nest, At
Fort Steele some improvements are to
be made in the appioacbeB to the
briage across tbH Kootenay.
HEAVENLY REST.
Pekin, China, Aug. In.���The troops
nf the powers havo not yet evacuated
the public bindings. The liritisli
and Americans propose to occupy the
Temple of Heaven and the Temple of
Agriculture until their barracks are
ready.
Sir Ernest Satow, the British minister thinks it would not bu wise to
withdraw before the protocol has been
signed in conjunction with thu Chinese plenipotentiaries as the withdrawal would remove tbe chief inducement to the Chinese to sign. The
Japanese still hold the northern section of the oity. It is considered significant of tbeir relations with the
Chinese that a Japanese colonel has
beon selected to oommand and organ
i/.e the Chinese. The opinion is grow
Ing that the court will refuse to return so long us the powers maintain
such forces in the province ol  Chi Li.
Tho protocol does not piovlde for
the dentructioii of thc forts, ministeis
of the powers having failed to agree
on this point.

imprisonment, was today admitted too

BRADSTREET'S
TRADE OUTLOOK
A Summary of the Situation
In Canada for the Past
Week.
Look for Prosperous Times In
B. C. on Account of Sal
mon Run.
Toronto, Aug. 10.���Uradstroeet's report says business at Montreal haa
been fair for this soason. It is soarce-
y time yet for any active movement
in business such as is alnays experienced in the latter part of August.but
the preparations already being made
for the fall trade plainly indioate that
the movement tbis year will be large
and retailers intend to be well prepared for an increased demand before
snow flies. Values are steady all
round. Collections are fair for this
season. Trade has been rather lesB active in Toronto and this week then)
has been a fair number of fall orders
coming to hand but travellers are now
coming off tbeir routes to prepare for
thc sorting trips and when they return
to their routos it Is expected theie
will be roncwod activity in buying
among the retailers. The crop prospects are Bncouraging to business and
the genornl expectation is thnt the results will be increased activity in
many departments of trade nnd manufacture the next few months. Values of
staple goods continue steady to firm.
Payments are not very satisfactory at
the moment, but tbey never are expected to be good at tbis time of tbe year,
when the farmeis are busy getting in
their crops and little or uo produoe is
being marketed.
Tbe feature in business ��'. thc "��.
cifio coast thc past ten days was tho
enormous ran of salmon in the Fraser
river,which has beaten all reuoids and
the take has been very heavy. This
will do much for the prosperity at the
Coast and cause the circn'ation'of a
great deal of money in the far wost.
The outlook for retail trade at Vancouver and Viotoria is brighter. Payments are still somewhat slow.
Business at London is fair for this
week for the midsummer holiday season. Retailers have been buying
some good parcels of goods for tbe fall
and the prospects seem to Indicate
that when the grain movement begins
there will be considerable activity in
trade at country market points as
well as increased activity in the larger cuntcis.
Tbo attention of business men in
Winnipeg is pretty well absorbed In
the crop situation at the moment.
Wheat cutting is progressing favorably in moat distriots The outlook
is more encouraging than it was ten
days ur two wcekB ago and there Ib
less beard about the deterioration of
tbe grain now and many districts are
repoiling good results.
Railroad traffic is already very heavy
and the increase ln the movement
when the wheat begins to move will
bo very great.
CHAPLEAU CREDITORS.
A meeting of the local creditors of
the Chapleau Consolidated Gold Mining Company was held yesterday afternoon. The coinpany has arranged
to pay 83,000 thiB week on account of
the claims against it. which will
leave a balance of (8,000. Thc creditors have garnlshced the appropriation
made by the Provincial government
in aid of the wagon road, amounting
to. about 80,000 and it is expected
that the whole matter will bu closed
up shoitly. Considerable dulay ha-
occurred through the vouchers for payments, made in cunnoctlor with
the wagon road by the Chapleau company, being held by the engineer in
oharge of the construction. As tho
vouchers have to be in possession of
the government before any money
is pnid on account of the appropriation nothing bas yet been obtained
from that source. At the meeting
ycsteulny lt was stated that the engineer had retained possession of the
vouohers because he had not receivou
payment of somo account duo htm Oy
tho Chapleau company. The creditors have instructed tholr solicitors
to take the neoesHaiy legal steps to
obtain delivery of the touchers, an
they claim that the engineer has lo
right to bold the vouchers foi any
personal clulin. :-t

nice
pcoted occurs
there will be established large iron
and steel works. It means that employment will be given for many generations, to thousandi of skilled aud
unskilled workers and the industry
should, when it is placed on a firm
fooling, equal, if not surpass, in importance tbe gr. Id, silver, copper and
lead mines of tbe province; it means
that the production of the furnaces
will after a certain period bas elapsed
increase to beyond the absorbing capacity of the home market and that
there will be a surplus turned out
for export to other countries.
The maiket for the   products   to   be
manufactured'by the new enterprise is
a large and a waiting  one,   and until
other iron   manufactories   are   estab
lished the   Montreal corporation   will
have practically   a   monopoly   of   the
field.    In    Hritish    Columbia   it   will
bave the   province to itself,   while   it
should be   able   to   meet its   Eastern
rivals half way   across tho  continent.
Then   it   may   be said when it conies
to exporting   its   output   it   bas   the
countries on both sidiiB of thc   Pacific
ocean with its largo archipelagoes for
a market.    The Orient should furnish
it many customers,   while Australasia
should also purchase it wares. Should 1
the tariff wall be too   high   to   admit
the H. C. iron and steel inlo the Unit-
edStatOBr.be Mexico the Central American countries and   the   South   American republics bordering along the Pacific should be able to fnrnlsb customers  for largo   quantities   of   its   products.    It is obivous that  the   market
available is larger than   tho   capacity
will bo to   supply it till   the industry
has giown to lnrge dimensions.
It seems Strange, when   there aro so
many   places in   which   the   products
of the   irons   and   steel   furnaces   oan
be     sold   to   advantage     that    large
plants   were   not   before   established
at some of   the   coast   points.    There
re some extensive deposits of iron   ore
along the   const.    (In    Texada   Island
there urn a number of iron ledges and
some   of   the oro from there bas been
sioelted in   tbe small   furnace of   the
Union Iron works at I'oit   Townsend.
There are  largo iron   deposits in Oregon and   Washington.    Oa   the    west
coast, of Vancouver Island, udfacent to
tide water, there are known to be sov
earl deposits, nnd   the   ore   from one
of these   011    llnrcliiy  Inlet, has   been
pronounced by oxpertH to be of a quality equal to tbe celebrated  I'lilmn iron
ore.    Ibis deposit   wns  examined   by
Pittsburg   pin ties   seveial   yours   ago
and for a while they seemed   inclined
to take hold of it,   but   the   dilHculty
of   obtaining cuke suitable   for   llu.\-
ing ami some other   complications led
to the abandonent  of   the   enterprise.
There will be 110   trouble    in   that ru
gard with   the    Kitchen T   enterprise.
The   OOke made from the Crow's   Nest
ooal is peculiarly   suited for smelting
iron   on.    The   coke made   from   the
coast   coals,   it is claimed   by experts,
crumbles when Bred and allows the ore
which   is placed on top to fall to   the
bottom   of   the furnncii   before It   has
smelted   und   the risnlt   is   imperfect
smelting,    hut   this   is   not    the ease
with the Clow's Nest   product.    It remains   (inn   nnd   solid, holds  up   its
load of ore until tho process of   smelting has been completed.    This quality
of   the   coke   wns   one   of   the   main
reasons why ihe deal for the Kltchen-
01    iron deposit   was  closed.    Besides
this the   deposit   located   closo   to   it
extensive   mnsses     of   HuxeH   in    the
shape of lime nnd magnesia   and it is
nn important   matter in tbe   economy
of iron making to have   siiltnblu   and
ohetip   llux   closu at   hand.    Another
decided advantage and i  which will
materially alii the enterprise is that
the bnul on tbo eokii from oven to furnace is a short one, nnd then too, the
price of the fuel Is not high.
While the cost of labor at Kitchener
is and will lie Hiimewhnt higher tluir-

steel oommences to be made here it
will shut out all like products made
elsewhere.
With an almost limitless maiket,
with abundant fluxes close nt hand,
with cheap and ellicient coke within
easy distance and the transcontinental
haul in favor of the enterprise, there
seems to be no reason to dcibt that
the industry can be soon established
on a profitable, sound and enduring
basis and it looks as though the project would be ono of the most Successful) ever established in thc province,
provided, of course, as Mr. Blake-
more says, the deposit proves equal
in quantity to what it is in quality,
and there is not the least doubt us to
the latter.
The outlook, therefore, is most
promising for the enterprise and in
due course of time thc province may
have its Carnegies, its Scwabs, and
its Morgans, with tbo accompaniment
of a big steel trust.
One of tho pleasing features of the
deal is that tbe purchase price, _H0,-
iiui) is distributed among men wbo are
rciddent of this or other cities of the

will undoubtedly be invested in
enterprises conducive of the goneral
prosperity, and not a little to it, perhaps, in other mining ventures,

Smith   Curtis   appears   before    the
public in a new role, and tbis time he
is   a   Pathfinder, and   is trying to locate a route for the Coast to Kootenay
railway   to   cross   the Cascade mountains.    He announced   at   a   banquet,
held in Princeton a few nights   sinoe,
that he bad found a feasible route and
it is   his   intention     to   explore   thc
Suiiilliiiiueen   Pass in order   to   ascertain if its gradients ore better suited
for   milway   building   than   the  one
which   be   bad   already     discovered.
Mr. Curtis   bus   set his heart   on   the
early opening up of the   Similkameen
country   by   a   railway,   and   ho has
bis   own   Ideas   as   to   how   and   by
whom   tbe line should be constructed.
At     first    he     favoied     government
ownership, but   as   the ministry   was
opposed   to   this,   he   abandoned   the
idea,   and   asked that an independent
or competing lino be uuilt.    He is opposed to   allowing   the   C.    P.   R.   to
build the line.    Ily hook   or   crook he
is   determined   that   tbe     road   shall
materialize and as the peopio   of   the

,,KTTER krom CAPT.  BEEK.
.Nelson Officer in South Africa With
the   Constabulary.
Captain George S Ueer writes from
Belfort Kopje, near Petrcsburg, 60
miles from Uiomfontein.O.R.colony.as
follows to a friend in this city :
Hear Harry,-I've got a few minutes to spare you for a -hat. I'll Dot
sit on   your   counter this   time.    Ypu
can r
anil vou can
w possible. Well here I am for today
011ly, I had a very good trip ont.
We lost four men ln Ave days and
,v_rc on fire for a week, but thut's
all in the huslntss. We landed at
('line Town and were fired up country
in two taouis after
days' steady traveling
_ro_i.it ns to Hloe-nfontein. Only 600
of .wonine this far, the others,including tlie Kootenay and Nelson lads,
went another way and so I have lost
all track of them. I'll try and get
Smyth and Blaney in my troop later
on, Wc immediately left the train and
marched ten miles to our rest camp.
Wc camped there for two weeks waiting for saddles, eto., which did not
come and for that matter have not yet
arrived. Then we were ordered
south to this (Petersburg district) and
off w. marched. The ofllcers were
supplied with saddles and horses, 111
saddles lor 100 men and about two
horses. Well, we have beon marching
and building forts ever since and tomorrow we mareh again. I hear that
| at the next place we go to we stay
for a month or two and get our sad-
'��� dies, and so the men'are cheered up a
hit It is no fun, Harry, to see my
trooD "foot slogging" in boots, say
a No. 10 on a No. 7 foot. But you
con gamble that our mes aro furely
doing well. I suppose you would
wonder why we are moving about so
much. Well, we are not constables
yet, at any rate only in name, hut
are acting as Boldiers and working
with the British troops clearing the
country, lt is a diflieult task to drive
out tho lloers. Wo shell them one
day and clear them out, the n.xt day
tney can be seen sitting on an ant
heap (out of range) looking at us.
There i�� not much lighting; it's jnst
chasing. Sometimes they spit at us
and we bear the bullet sing, but your
humble servant does not approve of
being turned out of hod in tho oold
mornings at 4 a. m., and when there
is any firing I just go out and get the
men np and ariiied. Then if we are
not ordered on to some place till later
I tell the men to turn In armed and
I slide into my own tent and go to
sleep. The weather is beautiful,clear,
cuol days and cold nights, with occasional frosts. The oountry is like
our Oanadian prairies, only the hills
are more abrupt and roeky. Tell
George to remember me to the company and let me know how it is getting on. Extended ordor and firing
drill aro the only things to practice.
The war may he over at anytime and
may not be over for a year. Lord
Kitchener expects to catch 1000 Boers
por month (last month we got 3,040
all told) and he considers there are
20,000 Boers in the field, so there
yon are. Dewet and Delarey are
s.ueezed pretty hard some times hut
do nor get canght. I am in elegant
health and strength and so for have
not had mneh trouble to hold down
my job. I am gutting, as we all are
to be given, a war modal and a war
gratuity. Well, old man, write soon
and send me some papers. Yours to
a olnder. HEOROE S. BEEU,

GOLD DREDGING INDUSTRY.
Gold dredging on the Saskatchewan
Is an Industry that promises to bo
come a most important one. The
treatment of the gold-beurmf, black
sand so as to extract from It the precious metal which it is known to contain is pajing quantity, has long befell,
a difficulty with assayer. and mining
experts. There were many who hold
that it was a smelting proposition
and there are thoso who still adhere
to this view, but the results of work
of the dredges now in operation
show tho extraction of the gold yields
to the cyanide process now In use by
tho dredging companies, and settles
the course of treatment to bo adopted. Already a lnrge amount ot gold
haB been taken out, how much Is not
exactly known save to tho managor
of the works, hut several bricks of
great value have been Been at the Imperial hank and it is understood that
tbe weekly clean-up pays expenses
and glveB a satisfactory return on the
Investment, The fact having been
established that gold in paying
quantities can be taken from the
river bod, au industry hns heen created that is oapable of groat expansion
giving employment to many persons
and meaning the expenditure of a considerable payroll in tbe town. The
companies working on the river, de-
rl ling so much profit from throe
dredges, will probably not stop nt
that but in order to work their concession fully will augment thc mechanical force so as to realize   11s soon

MINING
Tho statement in Thursdays' Tribune as to the Payne trum at Sandon
being party burned was incorrect, as
the fire never reached it. When the
forost fire first threatened the tram
gangs of men were despatched to fight
the flameB, which they were success
ful in doing.
Rossland, Aug. 16. ���The Abe Lincoln mine on Deer Park mountain,
overlooking this city, will resume
operations at once. The pioperty has
a promising showing but has beeu
closed down for two years because 3f
a depleted treasury. This hns been
remedied and operations will be coin-
mencad with a view to demonstrating the merit of the proposition.
P. C. Niveu, of tbe Whitewater
mine, is stopping at the Hume. In
conversation with a Miner representative he _tated that prospects are
brightening consderably there. Sinne
the opening up of the Whitewater on
August 1st, the force has been gradually increased until there are new
fifty men working. The mill is now
running with a day shift. A fd_Pb of
men have also been started on the
Echo group. Since tbe closing
down of the mine some time ago there
has been no school at the Whitewater.
There are now a number of families
living there and a sulli"ient number of
children of school age, ana the parents are very anxious that the school
should be started again.
At the record office yesterday the

Beaver claim from A. O. Mellander

A circular has been forwarded to all
stockholders of the Brandon and
Guillen Crown Company announcing
the reorganization of the company
and the fact that stock may now oe
exchanged for certificates in the new
corporation, which will oe known
as the Golden Crown Mines, Limited.
The statement details the development at. the mine, which is claimed
to have oost about 800,000, and predicts that when the debts of the company are settled und arrangements
made foi continuous shipments the
property will pay its own way. The
increasing Bmelter facilities with the
consequent loilnoed iate for froight
and treatment are referred to as feat-
ores that will mateilally enhance
tho value of the company's shares.
Recent development work on the
Mountain Boy group of claims on the
south side of Poole creek has resulted
ln some discoveries of very rich tree-
milling gold ore. The group is situated in the same belt as the Eva
and Oyster groups In the Lardeau
district nuJ belongs to J. McGee and
W. Gerard. The propeity wns located nearly fonr years ago as a galena
moposltion and assessment work has
been done each yoar. The lodge was
a la'ge one but the ore was of such a
low grade that little hopo was entertained of the property proving to be of
any great value. The rsceut discoveries on the Eva and other adjoining
properties having shown that tho
claims couiprised in thu group were
in the free gold district the ledge waB
thoroughly prospected and stripped
for a considerable distance. This resulted Ir a ohute of extremely rich
gold ore being found in thu ledge that
had before been worked only for silver. The owners are naturally much
elated over the discovery.
