HEADING THIS WAY.
Encouraging   Railroad   News
From die South.
J. J. Hill's Flam For the Extension
of the Great Northern Railway Into   Southern
British Columbia.
The late railroad news received this
Week is very encouraging. When J. J.
Hill's new line reaches the junction of
the Okanagan and Similkameen rivers,
76 miles^more lit tire easiest kind of railroad building will bring it to Princeton. As the route is an all-river one, following the' Similkameen river, an easy,
'cheap and natural grade is provided.
That the line will come to Princeton is
'certain, as our coal fields and copper
'*min"es,,will be an irresistable attraction to
a business-like corporation like the Great
Northern railway company. The Seattle
P. I. publishes the following information

Articles incorporating the Washington
& Great Northern Railway Company,
which is'To build up the valley of the
Okanogan river to the RepubH«-4H-i-ning
camp and the Bpundary district of Brit-
' ish Columbia, weie filed Thursday afternoon in the office of the county auditor.
The incorporators are Janes' J; Hill, president of the Great Northern; Judge
Thomas Burke, Will H. Thompson, Ed-
VaraSawyer'and M. D. Groyer, general
counsel for the Great Northern.
The new line will be owned and con-
troled by Mr. Hill and the Great North
lern, It will open up the fertile valley*
ofthe Columbia, Okanogan and Methow
rivers and give~the mining camps of Republic, Grand Forks, Loomis and the
Boundary district railway transportati

handle.
Part of the project is the construct
of a smelter at Ives to handle ores from
the districts named. Capital is alread;
■emistedTOrthi^enterprise. An immens
mining district lying in the loop of the
Columbia river from its confluence ^
the Okanogan to British Columbia
be tapped by the new road.
Construction on the new line has been
already started near Marcus, and con
tracts covering a large part of the roa<
between Marcus and Cascade City, B. C.
nave been let. Other contracts will be.
let by the company as fast as practicable^
The route of the new line may bS
briefly described as follows:
From Wenatchee, on the main line of
"the Great Northern, the new road will
take its course along the west side ofthe
^Columbia river past Chelan Falls, passing through yi-ginia  oty and Brewster.
which is controlled by P
the Great Northern.
Connections will be made by tbe new
tine with the Spokane FallsJfc.Northern
at Marcus, the road being built down the
Kettle river from Cascade City to Marcus.
The entire distance to be covered ia
approximately 25Q_uiiles. The road will
cost $9,000,000, and it is estimated that it
will take two years to build it.
There is no richer section of Washing,
ton than that to be lapped by the new
line. There are scores of promising mining properties, in a half developed condition, in the Boundary and Boundary
Creek districts and- in Repnblic camp.
The ore obtained from these mines runs
from $10 to {30 per ton. Transportation
charges by wagon are so great that there
is no profit in marketing the ores under
present circumstances. For years the
mine owners"have hoped for a railroad,
now it appears that their desires will be
gratified.
The new line will also develop a great
wheat business along the Upper Coli
bia river. Moreover, there is a very rich
and promising grain, fruit -and mine
section in the vicinity of Lake Cheli
This country, too, will be greatly be*
fited by the construction of the new li:

The Unanimous manner in which the
shareholders of the Brandon and Golden
Crown Mining company agreed to reorganize on an assessable basis, at the extraordinary general meeting held in this
city last week, gh*s assurance that it
will only be a^maKer'cff a few*>weeks
when the mine will againft" undergoing
development. The new undertaking, to
be known as the Golden Crown Mine,
Limited, will be capitalized in the same
sum as the old concern, viz., $1,500,000.
The dollar shares, however, will only be
paid up to 95 cents, when issued in exchange for the old stock, and the balance
will be called up in-monthly instalments
as the director* deem advisable. By this
means a working capital of $75,000 will
'be provided, a sum deemed sufficient to
fully demonstrate the merits of the property. The mine, previous to its being
closed down, sent out to the Trail
smelter something over 2000 tons, the
freight and treatment rate was such that
the directors did not feel justified in paying it any longer, especially as the smelter
company at that time declined to reduce
the figure unless a contract for a specified
tonnage was entered into, or unless the
entire output of the mine was sent to the
Trail smelter for one year at a fixed rate.
With the working fund to be provided to
continue development, shipments will
not be necessary to raise money for this
'purpose and consequently the best efforts
of the management will be confined to
exploiting the property with a view tc
making it a mine, like what is now being
undertaken at the Winnipeg, the adjoining property. Beside the old 322-
ifQOt tunnel the Golden Crown is developed by a main shaft down a depth of 32a
feet, with shafts at the 100, 150 and 250-
fliiot levels. . To date the total number of
feet of work, done is 3443.
Another company that is about to undergo a reorganization, on practically
similar lines to the Brandon and Golden:
Crown, is the Fairview Corporation,
Limited, operating the Stemwinder at
Fairview. Richard Russell, the managing directer, is now in Montreal consulting with the leading shareholders. When

A number ofthe mining men and
settlers in the district, who are
thoroughly convinced of the future
of the Similkameen country, are
greatly pleased at the opportunity
afforded them of securing a location
in what they hope will become one
irpc
by
stall,
fifteen years ago.
Mr. Tunstall was quick to see
the natural topographical situation
of the flat, and it has always been
his unswerving belief that when
the Similkameen country was
opened up by railroads, that Otter
Flat would become one of the important points in this district.
This belief has been fully endorsed by the preliminary railway
surveys made in the past three
years. The Coast-Kootenay Railway Co., the Vancouver & Grand
Forks Railway Co., the^V., V. &
E. Railway Co., and tiie C. P. R.
have-all had the Tjalameen route
under consideration, and the first
two companies have named it as
their location when applying for
charters.
When a railway is built through
the country (and there is no question now about its being started before many months) Tulameen will
be an important junction on the
direct line with spurs running to
the different mining camps which
are now being rapidly developed.
Not only is the town favorably
located as a common centre for a
number of promising mineral properties, but the best' coal lands yet
located in this section are situated
about three miles distant. Other
features which afford it natural ad
vantages, are the abundance of
timber and water in the vicinity,
and as a pleasure resort, that beautiful stretch of water, Otter Lake,
six miles long and over a mile wide,
gives it an attraction which few
townsites in the province possess.
Of course quite a few people will
say that these advantages are not
of any commercial value at the
present day, and that the whole
ture of the   country   depends on
e construction of railroads.
Quite correct! But the steady
progress shown by the Similkameen country in the past two years
has proven that her coal' and mineral resources are more than suffi-
ient to demand the immediate construction of a line, and those who
e the pluck and confidence to
sst when prices are lowest will
ainly realize a handsome profit

it is funny, and the whole of it is
not of a very high standard of journalism, but will probably suit a large
number of a certain class of readers
which it will reach. R. T. is certainly enterprising, and we wish

rate description of the vessel and her appointments without going into the minutest details. The ship's exterior is well
remembered by many Skagwayans, but
the interior has been so completely
changed that it was absolutely unrecognisable yesterday. Tbe fittings are most
elaborate and the decorations are all of
artistic merit and present a harmony of
view which is indescribably grand.
The dining saloon is exceptionally
large for a ship of the proportions of the
Islander. Its finish' could scarcely be
finer, it would seem. The furnishings of
the ladies' cabin, tbe lounging room and
other parts are of the fittest. One of the
attractions which is always looked for bv
traveler is a chance to promenade. The
Islander's cabin is so located that a splendid walk can be had around it.
But it is in tbe state rooms where the
well being of the passenger has been
zealously guarded. Every arrangement
and detail which could possibly contribute to their comfort has been provided.
From main truck to kielson, from stem
to stern tbe ship is kept scrupulously
clean. As many wended their way up
town after viewing the vessel and enjoying the hospitality of Captain Foot, they
were constrained to say she was the finest
vessel with the most popular skipper on
the run.
On the way up there were many musicians on board, and the last night out a
concert was given, at which T. R. Pum-
phrey presided.

Skagway heralded the arrival of the
Canadian Pacific Navigation Company's
steamship Islander in its port on her first
trip by the following glowing report,
which appeared on the front page of the
Daily Alaskan:       •
" Sunday afternoon half of the population of Skagway accepted the cordial
invitation of Captain Foot to inspect the
steamship Islander. Captain Foot was
personally in charge, and he was very
solicitous to see that everybody had a
chance to see the fine ship and partake
of the good things. He was most ably
assisted by Agent Dunn, Mr. Pumphrey
and every member of the crew. They
were all just as polite and attentive as
though those aboard had paid their hard
cash to be taken care of.
