Vancouver, Pearl, and Pothole Claims Sold to

Mr. J. P. Allen reports the sale ofj
the Vancover, Pearl, and Pothole j
claims to W. T. Shatford of Slocan
City, the price being $15,000.00.
These claims were the property of
Messrs. Murphy, Angsteadt and

The present   proposal calls   for a cash
subsidy of {4,000 per mile.   This amount
company undertaking to repay it after a
lapse of ten years by paying yearly to the
government two per cent, of the gross
earnings of the road. When the subsidy
is repaid, tbe road is immediately to become liable for taxation. The company
is'ready to accept government supervis-
. ion and control of rates consistent with
Dominion jurisdiction. It will ask for a
subsidy of $6,000 a mile from the Domin-
;es   to   begin  work
Dominion    aid   is
It
ill 1
gua
intee de
posit of {5,000, and in the event of th^
charter being granted agrees to furnish
security to the extent of {200.000.
The company will complete the road
five years after Dominion aid is granted.
Surveyors are already in the field.
The company will seek a charter to
Midway or to a point beyond, and will
build along the south side of the Fraser
river, via Hope mountains and Chilliwack to a point on the Gulf of Georgia,
- between the mouth of the Fraser and the
international boundary. The company
will seek connection with Vancouver
over the projected New Westminster
bridge, and with Victoria and Vancover
Island by a modern car ferry system, operating across'the Gulf and connecting
with the Victoria Terminal railway, or
by its own rails into the capital.
Messrs. McArthui and McCrae of Ross-
' land and McDougall of Olalla, who incorporated the Similkameen and' Keremeos road, are believed to be associated
with the New York company in the present proposal.
The Pothole, which is located on
an immense iron-capped dyke, carries fair values in gold and copper,
the   copper   values   increasing   as
depth is attained.
On the Pearl a tunnel has been
driven 60 feet for the purpose of]
cutting at depth a fine lead outcropping above. Excellent ore has
been encountered in the tunnel. A
big ore body resembling in character that of the Portland, has been
exposed by open cuts on the Vancouver.
This claim should develop into a
great mine under skilful management, as the surface showing is one
of the largest and best in the
camp.
