Fairview Enjoying an Era of!

Fairview, B. C. Jul
This camp has again take.
cessful in the re-organization of the concern hereafter to be known as The New
Fairview Corporation, Limited. Every
mail brings in from $2,000, to $2,200 in

Speaking of the pr<
eihg 1
ion, Mr.  Russell  said
to the correspondent of the Star.    "At
opinion of the shareholders that the
company should be re constructed and a
determined effort made to pay off the
indebtedness, and place the Stemwinder
mine on a profit paying basis. To do
this it was necessary to raise from
$70,000, to $90,000. We owed Gooderham & Blackstock of Toronto, $40,000
and interest, for money advanced, and
the balance will be necessary to properly
equip the mine, and in the removal ofthe
Tin Horn mill; its re-erection and purchase of additional stamps. The capital
stopk of the new company is the same as
the old. viz.: $1,000,000, divided into
4,000,000 shares of the par value of 25
cents, each of such shares are paid up to
the extent of 22 cents, and assessab|e*.for
the balance. Shareholders in the cor-
* poration will receive one share in the
new company for every one they now
hold, to be issued to them upon delivery
of stock and payment of the first assessment of one and a half cents for each
share, within thirty days from the date
of incorporation, the second payment to
be paid not less than four months from
the first. Most ofthe heavy share-
holders have already made the first pay
ment and transferred their stock, and
every mail-day brings in over $2,000
stock is coming in rapidly. Out of the
number of shares already issued in the
old company over one-third has beeu
transferred, and if, as we anticipate, mos
if not all the stock is sent in. we shall hav
about $40,000 to start with. Out of thi
money a substantial payment will be
made on Gooderham & Black-stocks'
mortgage, as the directors earnestly desire to get rid of this encumbrance. In
fact the majority of the stockholders
genuinely pleased that the firm did not
it the Cariboo mill and several others.
" During this work development ofthe
Stemwinder will be prosecuted vigorously. The west drift on the 300-foot level
is now in 104 feet, with a full face of
quartz, neither wall being in sight. The
ore is averaging considerably higher than
on the second level. Of 77 samples taken from the third level the average gives
$6.t2, while the ore on the second level
only 'etumed $441. We expect to treat
$4 rock and make it pay, and with this
end in view we are practicing, and will
continue to practice the strictest economy in the operation of both mine and
mill. With the truly immense showing
we have in the mine, the directors firmly
believe that a large daily output, with a
small margin of profit per ton, should
place the company on a sound basis. If
we find that with the 26 stamps now being set up we can succeed, the capacity
will be doubled. Meanwhile the work
of rebuilding the mill is to be pushed
ahead so as to have it in running oper
ation within the time I have specified—
three months."
FRO/! HEDLEY CITY.
[Special to the Star.]
Hedley City, B. C, Aug. 2.—There is
considerable activity in the building line
these days, and the noise of the carpenters' hammer is heard from morn till
night. Mr. Oliver the assayer, is having
completed a two story frame building,
for office and residental purposes. Another livery and feed barn has been built
and is open for business. Several private
residences will shortly be put up to provide for the families of miners working
on the hill.
Just as soon as the population warrants
it, the townsite company propose installing a system of water works, and will

GOSSIP   OF   TULAMEEN.
[Special to the Star.]
Tulameen City, AaJfTi, 1901.
Word has been received here that th-
Government will expend $500 at an early
date, in clearing the brush from off Otter
Avenue and Second Street. It is also
hinted that a boulevard is to be constructed at the north end of the townsite following the border of Otter Lake.
Fishing in the lake is fairly good and
several Princetonians have been out
trawling. Charles De Barro's boat is
much in use, and for the lovers of boating as well as the followers of Isaac Walton, few inland sheets of water can compare with Otter Lake. BgbJkosEejy, of
the New Denver Ledge, would forsake
the Lucerne of the Kootenays could he
but look upon this, the coming camping
and holiday resort of the Similkameen.
Beside for those of romantic taste, what
