the I. X. L.. a nearby   claim, where the
J work of  opening the   ore body is now
progressing.
Charles Powell has cause to be contented these days. The recent work on
the Princess May. as stated in last week's
Star, was fruitful in exposing some exceptionally rich ore. An assay of samples that he brought to town gave 11 pei
cent, in copper.
J. Bernard Tierney, M. E., of Nelson
has obtained an option from Fred Warn-
pole, of Princeton, for the purchase of
the Buller and a three-quarters interest
in the Little Gem Fraction, both on Copper Mountain. The Buller has a fine
surface showing of gold-copper ore. Mr.
Tierney sampled both claims, the ore
being sent to NelsQn for testing purposes.
If the option is taken ~ up development
work will be started this summer.
A resumption of work on the Humbolt
claim, adjoiningthe Oriole to the west, is
announced, when the 35-foot shaft will
doubtless be deepened, Since the Snow-
den boys started work on the shaft it has
•been put down to a depth of 20 feet. At
the bottom a noticeable change in the
character of ore is to be seen that is highly encouraging, as galena—something entirely new en the mountain—is coming
in in spots, and is associated with the
sulphrets and bornite.
Many camps have been established in
this vicinity, and work is in full swing
on several of the claims. At the Oriole,
D. M. French, the Day brothers and the
Snowden brothers have that camp. The
claim adjoins the Helen Gardner on the
south and east. The shaft is down 22
feet, passing through a capping of diorite
for 18 feet. The last four feet is in ore,
containing copper sulphrite and bornite.
Sampling of this ore after the last round
of shots gave 8 and 9 percent, respectively in copper.
Work has been temporarily suspended
on the Jennie Silkman, as the water came
into the shaft. Much surface work has
been done this spring, principallystrip
ping. On a line with the shaft, which is
down 22 feet, the ore on each side has
been traced across its width for 120
Another feature of this claim, worthy of
: that it is the ouly  one
the sale of lots by the government. A
number of parties are ready to build, but
wish to be sure of getting the sites selected.
Several new strikes are reported on
Eagle Creek, one ofthe Tulameen river
tributaries. Some large quartz ledges
have been staked, but no positivejtu-
formation is to be had about the character
ofthe mineral.
On Sunday last the Otter Flat hotel
presented a busy scene, a number of
travelers spending the night there ; and
quite a few mining men and others are
making Charlie Debarro's hostelry headquarters while working nearby mineral
Rabbit ^Tnautnin properties are being
extensively developed this summer.
Seven claims are having assessment work
done on them for the year, and
properties are promising so well that the
owners intend to continue/°rk after

The   Vicion*—Post    Sums   Up   the

I    The  Canadian  Pacific' Railway  Corn-
proposes to gradually extend  its

i west into the Similkameen.   How
actual construction  will be undertaken this year depends entirely on the
which James J. Hill   shows in
perfecting his Kettle River-Boundary &
Republic    branches    westwards.      The
nadian Pacific Railway Company   is
tremely anxious not   to   construct   a
le of railway this year if it can possibly
aid it.    Its policy has been directed to
ishing, so far as hxSin, the competitive
energies of its ri-yal.   In this it has been
ably seconded by the provincial government, whose whole-hearted subservience
it utilized to place the Dominion government in   a   position where   it   could do
nothing.    Still, the competition   of the
Great Northern  may force its hand and

But so far as the interests of the coast
are concerned the Hope Mountains remain an insurmountable barrier. The
policv of the Dunsmuir government has
declared that no company except the
Canadian Pacific Railway company is to
be allowed Trr'assisted to pierce that formidable range which stand* '-etv-cen the
Coast cities and a prosperous trade, between the mines of the interior and their
predestined outlet. The Canadian Pacific Railway company will never pierce
it. The policy pf that company is to tax
the mineral resources of Southern British
Columbia to feed a piainjjiie, to which,
from its geographical situation, these
mineral resources are not naturally tributary, and in this monstrous attempt il
has had the efficient co-operation ofthe
misrepresentative assembly. To the natural barrier of the mountains has been
added an artificial barrier of prejudice,
sectionalism and self-interest skilfully
builded and cemented oirt of the
rials of ignorance, obstinacy and 1;
to be found in our legislative hall. The
furnishing of that building, as everybody
knows, is made up of imported marbh
and native wood with which the heads of
a majority of the members are in beautiful aud artistic harmony. Whilethegar
goyles which surmount the pilasters on
the walls are not more singular in their
Gothic monstrosity than the masque;
which adorn the benches.
In business circles on the coast there i*
