the Pasayton. A small quartz vein has
been exposed on the surface by considerable open work. It was from this vein
that he took out and sacked 1,000 lbs. of
ore last winter, which realized in Vancouver so handsomely. He now proposes-
running a crosscut tunnel to the vein so
as to tap it at depth. Work on the tunnel has progressed a distance of 20 feet.

—Railway Situation
Discussed.
J
.\A
Mr. Curtis, continuing his
about a railway pass through the Hope
' mountains, said *—
" I intend to go over the known routes
and take the elevations myself. Last
week I visited a railroad pass at the head
of Coquihalla river, and of a creek flowing into Tulameen river. With the levels from Tulameen river to the pass,
one does not have to be an engineer
to know that that portion of the route is
very feasible indeed, the grade not exceeding 2>£ per cent, anywhere, and can
really be made on a i)£ per cent, grade
—a much better grade than the C. P. R.
has from Robson to Cascade, and with
not one-half as much rock work, and no
snow sheds required. I shall visit the
Coquihalla side from Hope to the pass,
and the Hope trail route immediately,
and a month  later via. Roche river.    I
all about these routes, for I consider the
immediate prosperity of the Coast cities,
of the Yale and Kootenay districts, to depend more on the early c instruction of
tains, than upon all other factors put together."
Mr. Curtis characterized the r
and
trails to the i
jmgc
raps the worst he
" There was not a single wagon road to
camps, that had not been built wholly by
private enterprise. The trails had all
been made by prospectors, and in one or
two cases a few hundred dollars had been
given to repair these. They were never
in the first place properly laid out. The
prospector could not afford to cut timber
or do rock work, but took the easiest
route round and about. The resulting
trails were up and down like W's and
curved back and forth like S's. The
trail along Kennedy mountain was
wretched, but the one to Summit City
was indescribable—the last six miles of it
was impassable for the ordinary horse.
It was covered with fallen timber, and
full of swampy sink-holes. Summit City
and the surrounding mineral country are
of such promise, that a first-class, trail is
necessary. A new trail should be cut
out for 25 miles. No money should be
wasted on the present deer trail. At
'least |25,ooo should be voted next year
for roads and trails to camps on the South
Similkameen and Tulameen rivers, and
the slope towards Hope"."
" In building roads and trails the work
should be started in the spring, and practically all the work given to miners and
prospectors. The early construction, besides affording access for the season to
the camps, enables the trail to become
hard and not be ruined by next spring's
thaws, and gives the prospector provisions and material for working his claims,
and so tremendously develops the coun-
Indians from^JUyttott—and to—outsiders
shouldbe_stopped. The future of the
Similkameen depends upon the man with
the pick and shovel, the hammer and the
drill, and no where in B. C. has he received less consideration and been more
badly treated, and had more unnecessary
discouragements and brick bats thrown
at him by the powers that be, than ir
Similkameen.
