A Red Hot Combination.
The Sandon boys are organizing a
baseball team and are negotiating
with the Kasloitos for a game there
on the fith'. If the report which the
special correspondent of the Nation
sends in bh true, and it sounds
reasonable, the Sandon boys will
nave to go up agasnst a dead hard
proposition.     That   journal  says:
"Although the American national
same received a severe set-back here
last season. Manager Archie Fletcher
is busily engaged in the formation ol
a baseball team, the equal of which
has bever been seen in this city, or
in British Columbia, for that matter.
For si?vcral months past the genial
manager has had under consideration the best and  mod. economical
manner of reviving the interest in
the popular game and still he in a
position to place an Invincible team
in the Held.   After many  sleepless
nights  Archie arrived  at the conclusion  that   Kaslo   has   sufficient
material at home to retain her hard-
won   laurels^ against   all    comers.
Within n few days the team will be
complete.   Mr. Fletcher has signed
D. C. MciJrcgor and E. B. riiipman

gentlemen have not been seen on the
diamond for  several seasons, it  is

"Palouse   Invineiblcs."   Ol course,
the Colonel cannot lie depended on
for the season as his military duties
are liable to occupy a considerable

Marsh Adams will* hold down third

been signed, but in all probability
Sam  Green,   Hamilton   Byers and
Doc Marshall will be in the field.   It
appears that Hamilton Byers  is not
satisfied with the salary offered, but
as  Manager  Fletcher   cannot  get
along  without  lifm  that difficulty
will be  overcome.   S. P. Tuck will
act as umpire, as he is Arm and his

Duration of the War.

New York Sun,
The opinion, it seems, is entertained by many men, in congress and in
Wall street, fbr instance, that our
war with Spain will be of very briet
duration, only a few weeks or at
least two months. General Kitshugh
Lee is quoted as saying that "two
weeks will afford sufficient time to
wind up hostilities."
It is safer, however, for people to
prepare their minds for a much
longer delay. Undoubtedly, if the
Cubans should at once co-operate in
sufficient land strength with our fleet
before Havana, the Spanish would
be overcome speedily ; but it cannot
la; assumed that a large force of our
own troops will la* landed in Cuba
forthwith. The troops immediately
available for the purpose are only
those which could be spared from
the regular army, and while they
would Ik; enough to make a seasoned
nucleus about which to gather adequate forces, they are not enough of
thcmselvesalone to be overmastering.
The National Guard regiments may
verv possibly not be sent th Cuba
this spring, if at any time in the
future. None of the regiments i*

both the Mexican war and the civil
war that training and drilling, con
suming month* of tune, are absntttte-
ly nfonisite t .�� get volunteers In khape
for nrdorous campaigning. The
warfare of the present require*;
especially that troops nndergo long
physical training in order t ��� develop
strength and endurance, to throw up
entrenchments, besides bearing the
strain of long marches with heavy
Accoutrements to carry.
rJven if Havana were reduced and
taken by our fleet it would l>e a
barren victory unless we could
follow it up by hold*tig the city with
an army of occupation, if the
Cubans shall lie strong enough of
themselves to keep the Spanish army
and the Spanish volunteers in Hava
na while our navy remains in control of the water approaches, the
Spaniards will be starved out sooner
or later.
The great field of war, undoubtedly
will be the sea, and if the Spanish
fleet accepts battle or is forced into a
great and general engagement, hostilities may lie brought to a sjieedy
issue by our complete destruction of
it. But absolute confidence of that
is not fitting to the situation
It would be wiser, therefore, to
cultivate in the public the patience
to endure a period of hostilities which
may be protracted even Into the late
autumn, if not in'o next year This

but some slopes are quite treeless and
covered with bunch grass, while most
of the valley of the Kettle Uiver is opeu

rainfall is small.

miles to Boundary Falls and six miles
to Anaconda, where the road turns to
the east, while a road runs 1.5 miles
north to Greenwood, the largest, most
central and only incorporated town in
Boundary Creek region.
���'Much of this road is good, but verv

������Some have written of this region as
Selng rich in copner ores, but as yet
���hi* is not provod.niit there are certainly large zones carrying from I to 8 and
.percent, of copper, and some good
values. About all one can sav at the
���resent stage of verv scanty development is that throughout this region
!apart from the quarts veins and veins
���f high grade ore) large ledges or min
>ralized portions of the greenish, fekl��-
tiathic rock, already described, from
which good gold assays are obtained
md which offer .'very inducement to
extensive ��xploration! If more eoncea
t rated parts or regular ore-chutes are
found, there is everv reason to believe
that such ore would prove to be very
profitable as such good, but not pay,
values are already got from a large
amount of mineralised rock matter, ami
even some good pay ore has been found
in the very limited work done."
There are several important camp*
in ibis region, where the development
work is going slowly on on the more
promising properties. Central camp
presents a variety of ores; in that on the
No 7, liable, Norfolk, New York, No
Ii are gold or gold-silver hearing quart/,
veins: on the Coruncopia, pvrhotite, on
Citv of Paris, Ore, Golden Roil, St
Maurice, Lexington, auriferous copper
sulphides, and on the Lincoln, quarts
with argentiferous grey copper. This
camp is locallv known as Whites.
Douglas and At wood a camps, ami lies
at an elevation of 4,0W to t..V*> feet
along the verv heavily timbered mountain Spur, hi the head of Dmglas creek
eight miles bv trail from Midway ar.d
five miles from Boundarv Falls. The
formation consists of light colored,
greenish schistose rock, cut bv dykes
which appear to have nearly the sane
trend as that of the spur and of the
schistose stratiileatiou, or about north
east bv southeast.
A considerable amount of work has
been done on these properties the
No 7 was purchased for liMOpbythe
Boundarv Mines Co., New Urk. A
strong vein, one to (our feet wide of
hluidsh quarts,  with considerable iron
pyrites and zinc blende and a little
galena dispersed along the central por-!
tion of the vein, is exposed by cots for
nearly 1,000 feet.
On the Mable three veins have been
developed bv shafts. On the Oro, adjoining the Mable a shaft is sunk on a
strong vein. An 80-foot shaft on the
Golden Rod shows a good ledge. A
strong chute of ore is disclosed by two
shafts in the City of Paris, and on the
Lincoln, adjoining.
The St. Maurice Mining Society,
France, is operating the St. Maurice,
St. I^awrence, Jack of Spades. Other
locations have been made in this camp
on which both quartz veins and copper
bearing ledges nave been found, but, as
yet, these, and those already mentioned,
are but slightiy developed, and the
workings on most of them are filled
with water, little or no work having
been done of late years. On the
advent of a railroad* with the con-
iqueut much more favorable shipping
facilities, this camp will receive much
greater attention, and many of these
properties mentioned will be made shipping mines.
In Dead wood Camp conditions are
ajbout the same as* in Central. This
eamp is from three to four miles northwest of Greenwood City The import*
ant properties around it are the Mother
Lode, Sunset, Green, Crown Siver and
Morrison, on all of which more or less
work has been done and strong ledges
shown up- The Boundary Minos Co is
doing much to develop the properties of
this camp.
A road about six miles long runs
west .rom Greenwood to Copper Camp,
which was at one time the scene of considerable work, although very little was
done in 1897. The exposure on the Big
Copper attracted much attention and
chums have been staked off for miles
along the supposed trend of this lead
The Big Copper is about 4,400 feet
above, sea level. Of the character of
the mineral showing Mr. Carlyle savs.
'Along a narrow area of crystaline
limestone is a zone of |K>rphyrite very
highly mineralized with haemn'ite,
which* also occurs in solid masses, and
at the contact with the lime stringers,
and sheets of this ore ramify through
the limestone. Much of the pornhynte
has been shattered, forming a breccia
with a haematiie cement, but this body
at its waist is over 100 feet. In the iron
some of the higher copper compounds,
such as chalcocite, cuprite and even
metallic copper near the surface have
been found.
The Old Republican Mining Co.,
owns several Crown granted claims on
Smith's camp, near Anaconda or Greenwood. The principle claims hereabouts
that have attracted much attention are
the Non-Such, Last Chance, Republic,
tiolconda, Iva Lanore, and Boundary
Falls, on ail of which a great amount of
tunnel and shaft work has been done
and the strong ledges shown up with
open cuts.
Providence Camp embraces those
claims lying on either side of Boundary
creek at the town of Greenwood. Here
in t'ie band of horn blend ie granite and
adjacent highly metamorphosed sedimentary rock, are found small veins of
high grade silver ores, with good gold
values. The Boundary Creek M. & M.
Co.. capital stock, $1,500,000. owns ten
claims on the hills west of Greenwood,
ami it, and other smaller owners, have
put a great amount of work on the pro
perties hereabouts These veins will
prove very valuable wheu cheaper
transportation facilities are provided
I x>ng Lake Camp embraces the claims
located on either side of Long Lake,
about seven miles north of Geenwood.
This enmn presents conditions quite
different from any yet described, by
reason of the gold-bearing veins of
quarts ami sulphides, in the micaceous
schiests.quart7.ites and eruptive granite The mountains are lofty with steep
slopes from the lake, some of the claifus
King from 8,000 to 8,000 feet above the
lake, out of which flows Granite creek.
With the exception of the Jowel claim,
little work other than assessment has
been done, on any of the many promising properties.
The Skylark Camp lies two miles east
of Greenwood, between the Wood's and
Greenwood roads, on a road connecting
the two. Here has been found ore quite
different from any found in this district,
but little work has been done except on
the Skylark. Timber is plentiful and
roads can be easily built to any claim.
The Skylark is owned by G. Lavag-
uino, Colorado, and was bought for
$15,000. On it a 1 to 12 inch vein has
been followed for 80 feet, of nearly solid
mispickel, carrying come fine grained
galena and zinc blende and high silver
values. On the dump are about 15 tons
of first-class ore, which, sampled and
assayed, gave 250ounces silver and one
ounce gold per ton. The Boundarv-
HelenaGoid Mining Co., capital $300,-
000, has done some work on the Helen,
with very good results and the property
is very promising. An opening of 29
feet long and 25 feet deep shows a small
but will mineralized veiu under a
smooth hanging wall, with at one place
a streak four inches wide where, the
vein was eight inches in width, that
that gave an assay of 7.6 ozs. gold, 64.6
ozs. silver, 88 % lead.
The group of claims, spoken of as
the Greenwood Camp, lies on the summit of the watershed, at an elevation of
4.700 fijet, Itetween Boundary and
Fourth of July creeks, six miles east of
Greenwood, and all of the chief claims
lie near Woods road, from Greenwood
to Grand Forks As the dividing line
passes along this summit, such claims
as the Snowshoe, iGoid Drop, Monarch,
Rawhide, etc., are in the Grand Forks
division, the Stemwinder, Brooklyn.OId
Ironsides, Knob Hill, Idaho, Gray
Eagle, War Eagle, Missing Link, etc*
in the Kettle River division. It would
not be difficult to run a railroad to a
convenient point iu this camp, and such
will be necessary to transport cheaply
the ore to the* water supply, two or
three miles distant. The ore of this
camo is essentially, as yet, a low grade
gold bearing yellow copper, dissemeni-
ated with haematite and some calcite
through altered greenish fine-grained
eruptive rock, but massive magnetite
iron ore bodies have been found along
the apparent trend of leads in which is
the copper ore.
Mckenzie and Mann recently purchased the Stemwinder and they are
also interested in the Montezuma and
Phoenix claims adjoining the Stem-
winder. The Knob-Hill Gold Mining
Co., capital $1,500,000, is working the
KnohSHill. The ore body on this property is fully 50 feet wide, of nearly
solid fine-grained magnetite, carrying a
small percentage of copper. Thisclaiui
lies just south of Old Ironsides and'the
ledge is the same. The ore showings
on all claims in this camp are highly
Camp Summit lies at the head of
Fisherman creek, and is two miles by
trail from Greenwood, and about eight
by the roan. It is iu the Grand Forks
mining division. Herer as in all the
i other camps named, the properties
show up well as far as work has progressed
The Wellington camp, in the Grand
Forks division, lies about two miles
south of Greenwood camp, 7.5 miles
from the town of Greenwood and 14
from Grand Forks. The wagon road
between these places passes close by
all the workings on these claims. Th*e
Brandon and Golden Crown Gold Min
ingCo., Ltd., Rossland, is operating
extensively here, and other wealthv
com panics'are taking hold of the rich
properties of this camp.
What is known as Brown's Camp is
situated about ten milee bv road and
trail up the North Fork. Most of the
country hereabouts is well-timbered
and the North Fork has tine water
powers. Quite a uumber of claims have.
been staked off close by, and some work
has been done on most of them, but
only enough to demonstrate the continuity of the leads At the junction of
North Fork and Main Kettle river, in a
wide valley in which are several flue
fruit and grain ranches, where irrigated, the town of Grand Forks has grown
rapidly, but at the present time every
thing is very quiet pending the coming
of a rnllroan.

SANDON.   B. C MAY 7, 1398
Tub Vancouver News-Advertiser
offers some sound advice to the citizens of the coast cities in relation to
their eagerness to blow wind into the
Klondike bubble at toe expense ot
the mors substantial Kootenay districts, and In their efforts to restrict
the advancement of the district to
suit their own business interests,   It
says: "The people who dwell therein give to the provincial treasury
more than they take from it.   But
they ask in return that we shall not
hamper them by unwise restriction
on their enterprise; not impose artificial obstacles in the way of their
free communication with the outside
world; not attempt to force into other
channels the commerce which will
naturally follow along the line of
least resistance.    They ask from us
no more than we should demand were
the relative positions of both of us reversed.   We do not need to neglect
the possibilities of the Yukon for the
certainties of the Kootenay,  but at
the same time we shell be guilty of
folly if we so exhaust the financial
strength ot the Province in a mad
rush after the former, that we have
no resources left for the easier securing ot the latter."
There is the ring of truth in these
words, and it did not require t|e
turning loose of the "cap" case to express it   We of the Kootenay are
proud of the showing made by the
district, and we are not going to be
sidetracked bv a newspaper boom of
a greatly, over-rated country.   If the
business men of the coast cities in
general, and our lawmakers io particular, would pay more attention to
the development of the mining re-
sources-of the province by legitimate
business methods, end do less chasing
after rainbows, less booming of questionable stock oorapanies, less bonus*
ing of paper railroads, less theorising
on the wealth-producing schemes to
be adopted, it would be better lor all
concerned.   What British Columbia
needs is the development of what she
has certainly got, and this by methods
that will benefit the many, not the
few.   The people nor the country are
not receiving any benefit from the
granting of land snd privileges to
charter-mongers   and unscrupulous
companies, as has been done by the
present government.
They look upon-It as a serious step
In the wrongdlreetion, and a decided
setback to this province. Vancouver
and Victoria papers are not yet
through applauding the action. They
see In it the possible prevention of
open competition in this region. The
eastern press favored the bill because
it would help the whole province.
The Twin Cities opposed it because it
would not give them exclusive con
trol of the business of the Boundarv

The Klondike boom is petering out
and it will take more than the coast
papers can do to give it legs to carry
it over the summer. Returning gold-
seekers are becoming more numerous
daily, and their disappointment is too
great fbr them to keep it to themselves. They will talk. And man
b never so eloquent as when he is
forced by cirenmstaneea to tell what

It is a heart-breaking thing to be

dition roaming the streets of the coast
and sound cities, and more are com

Cheap fares, cheap advertising, cheap

shown the defendant some ledge*, it
was agreed that the three should stake
out some mineral claims for themselves,
and the plaintiff proposed that they
should be interested in everything thai
was staked, to wake the deaemlant and
IIurchin agreed. The three then staked a number ot claims, same for them-

they sold, and no dispute has arisen

8uperratenden�� F. B. Smith, of the
Crow's Nest Coat Com pony, wee tn the
city several days this week, says the
Fon8tede Prospector. He reporta the
operations at the mine to be going on
briskly. There are at present 44 men
employed, and a number of conunodioue
log buddings have been erected for their
use. They are now in about 1,000 feet
on the vein, and have made considerable
progress in "rooming" the coat From
40 to 50 tons a day is being taken out,
and there is already about 2,000 tons on
the dump. The work being carried on
now, however, is principally tor development purposes, so that when the time
comes as large a force of miners as may
be necessary may be employed to meet
the demands of the market.   By the
  _  time the railway is finished through to
and ironsides! f Kootenay Lake the mine will be in shupe
-      easily to produce from 200 to 300 tons
per day.
i For the present work will be done by
hand, but it is proposed to put in an
electric plant capable of doing all the
cutting and hauling of the mine, and
with this improvement 1,000 tons a day
will be easily mined. There is a magnificent water power on the creek which
h) available all the year round, and this
will be utilised to generate the electricity. The miners now employed are paid
by-the piece, and their wages range from
9*60 to $2,85 a day clear of board and
lodging. Thia brings the wages up to
the standard of $3.60 per day for competent men.
"Immediately on my return to the
mine," said Mr. Smith, "the work of
laying the foundations for the coking
ovens will be begun. They will be
located right at the mouth of the mine.
There will be SO in number to begin
witch, and by the time the railway is
finished there will be an abundant supply on hand for the West Kootenay

The richness ot the Mollie Hughes
ore surpasses belief. An assay made
by Howard West on Monday, from ore
taken out of the shaft Sunday night,
went 928.6^ in gold and 4,089 210 oss.
The work thus far on the property
has demonstrated the great value of the
ore and the permancy of the ledge, and
is a very good indication of what the
mine will be when work Is begun in
earnest and shipping begins. At the
present time the force of men is kept
down to what can be employed in three
openings with night and day shifts.
But as soon as more can be used they
wil�� be put on.
Two tunnels are being run to tap the
ledge at a depth of about 60 feet. The
ledge will be encountered in 80 teet,
when, if the ore chute holds jrood, the
richest ore ever mined in the Slocan will
be knocked down.
The ore that is now being taken
out comes from a shaft which is down
about 20 feet. The ledge has \rradually
widened from the surface and on Monday was two and a half feet in width
This ledge has been stripped for l..M��>
feet, and several tons of this rich ore i��
now on the dump Ore cars have arrived and one was taken to the mine Mon
day to use in running the ore from the
shaft to the sheds.
David M'Wre, representing the Trail
smelter, was in New Denver the first
of the week and opened negotiation*
for the Mollie Hughes ore Mr Moors
is looking over the Sloran in search of
dry ore, to use in connection with Ihe

hereafter in getting a verv cheap rate

''Yesterday morning, savsthe Nelson

found George Cooper wandering round
in the eastern part of the city, in a
shocking condition. His tongue was
hanging out of his mouth and badly
swollen, with a gaping wound on the
tip of it. The neck ana face were also
swollen and discolored, and altogether
he presented a most shocking sight
When spoken to. Cooper could not
speak intelligibly,so Thompson brought
him up to Teetzel's drug store, while
he went to Dr. Hall to secure a ticket of
admission for the man into the Kootenay Lake General Hospital Thompson* had hardly left before the man
expired, those in Attendance being of
the opinion that he had died of poisoning. Dr. Arthur, coroner, was notified
and an inquest was held in the after
"Cooper was a painter hy trade, and
had worked in variom parts of the district. He was much given to drink,
and would resort to various schemes to
appease his appetite for whiskey. He
had been working for a while recently
and then got off on a drunk. Thursday
be was wandering round the streets,
with eves rolling and an open pocket
knife in his hand. In the afternoon he
was noticed to jab the knife blade in his
tongue, causing the blood to How freely, and he went around in this condition, pointing to his mouth when asked
any question. He was also observed
sticking toothpicks into the wound "
Cooper will be remembered In New
Denver. When broke he has been
known to wound himself to get into the

The Toronto Monetary Times has
iu own opinion about the throwing
out ot Corbin's hill. It runs as
follows : "The throwing out of the
���Kettle River railway bill is attributed to the strength ol the lobby
against it. The incident apparently]
affords proof of tbe overpowering in
fluenceof the ('. V. R. in the h ��use.
The government supported the bill
but the 0. P. R. was nevertheless
able to make iu opjMxition effective.
It is not in the interest of Canada to
build a wall of exclusion around the
Dominion. Such acts beget retaliation, and thus in the end do general
mischief lor the benefit of a particular company." %
Mining machinery to the value of
$128,930 was imported into Canada
duty free during the fiscal year ending June 30th, 1897. Of this total,
19,266 came from Great Britain
while the United States supplied
Canada to the value of $114,239.
These figures only apply to that
machinery which was admitted free.
The total value of machinery imports amounted to a very considerable sum indeed. The greater portion of this free machinery came to
British Columbia. /

Boundary P.  ,��e Indignant
The people of the Boundary Creek
district are highly indignant over
the ultimate block in r of the Kettle
River railroad bill in the House of
Commons, such action postponing,
as they believe, for some time railroad access alike from the east and
"<>uth. They hoped that not only
would the Corbln railroad provide
them with a southern link of railroad
useful to the development of their
mining  interests but also provide
On* of the notable incidents in the
history of the Canadian carrying
trade was the arrival of the steamer
Lynn at Drpot Harlan*, the terminus
of the Ottawa, Arnprior A Parry
Sound railway. The Lynn is a steel
m mater, built at Chicago last winter,
and attached to the Parry Sound
system. Sh��* is If*) feet long and 50
fiitherun. She has a capacity off
6,500 tons, and her maiden cargo]
which she brought to Parry Sound
was 2I5.0.D bushels of corn, mainly
for export by Montreal. This is the
biggest load ever brought in a single
vessel to any Canadian port, and it
will take 350 cars, or ten trains, to
haul it to Montreal. But the Parry
Sound people arc not looking after
oaat-bouird freight alone. Seventy
car-toads of freight have already
la-en rushed through from Montreal
to furnish vessels for the west with
return cargoes. Mr. Booth expects
that the Parry Sound route will not
only divert to Canadian porta a substantial proportion of the grain
carrying trade that has hitherto gone
to the Brie canal, but will also enable
Montreal to cut into Toronto's trade
in supplies for the west. But for the
present, and during the war, popular
-.ttentioii will bo doubtless directed
mainly to the capacity of the road to
absorb the carrying trade from
Chicago to the seaboard.
The mines of Canada during the
last half of the past year are said to
have brought more money into the
country by about two and a quarter
million dollars than did its manu*
factories, notwithstanding tbe whole
financial policy of the country for
twenty years has been directed towards fostering the latter industry,
while the former has been left to
take care of itself. The, fisheries
have been carefully guarded, yet
their exports fell $52Q0iX) behind
those of the mines, and tU ���-���*���
from the forests were
half times as much.
Prince Edward Island, some time
since, carried and enforced the Scott

that prohibition the license laws
were allowed to lapse. Now in the
city of Chaiiottetown the Scott Act
has been repealed, there are no
license regulations and the sale of!
liquor is free to all. It is likely that
the temperance element of the rest

from the legislature a prohibitory

Frank J. Kinjrhorn has just returned from the foot of Lake La-
barge, where he delivered thirty
tons of freight for Bartlett Bros, tin
tailing np an extensive contract for
the mounted police. Mr. Kinghorn
says that the hardships and dangers
of the interior have not been in the
least exaggerated. While on his re
turn he had the misfortune to fall
through an air hole in the ice on
50-mile river, into a current running
15 miles an hour, but with that quick
intuition that comes to everyone in
moments of extreme danger, he remembered that another air bole existed in the ice two miles below, and
headed fur it in order to escape.
Upon reaching the place, however,
he found the air hole frozen over
solid, and had to swim back to the
point of starting.

and Walsh creeks have quite disappointed expectations. The go teral
belief is that the returns of the spring
wash-up will be large, th m-jli n >t
representing any very big aggregate
of gold per head, relatively to the
number ot miners and g.ild-seeker*
at work. The ice on the rivers and
lakes on the Skagway route is breakup, and until navigation opens, a
few weeks hence, little pi-ogres* can
be made.
In Ain8tcorth Camp.
Maxwell  Stevenson, of  Piii)a<iel-
Shia, who is largely uiterested in the
[ighlander mine and concentrator at
Ainsworth, has sold ^5,000 worth of
tbe stock of his company with the
understanding tbat it is all to be
used in developingm the mine. Mr.
Stevenson is expected to visit the
mine in a few days. He is a promt
nent attorney ot Philadelphia, and
has persistently developed the mine
unA built the concentrate4- with his
own funds in the face of many discouragements. If he resumes work
on the mine and mill as expected, it
will be a great benefit to Ainsworth
camp, which has not been enjoying
as active a season of late as some of
tbe younger camps of West Kootenay. The starting of the concentrator would enable other mines to
increase their output.
