ANOTHER DRILL TO START.
Alexander Sharp, M. E., has arrived

Interviewed by a Star reporter, Mr.
Sharp was very reticent and stated that
he had nothing to say for publication,
but it is generally understood that he intends starting the drill inside of a week
with a full complement of men.
The drill is said to be first-class in every respect, and intended particularly for
deep drilling.
The machinery for the drill is  now on

RICH STRIKE IN JOSIE MINE.
Probably the most important strike in
the history of Rossland camp is reported
by the manager of the Le Roi No. 2
mine, in the following cable to London
directors:
In the Josie mine 700 foot level cross-
we have cut the vein on the hanging
I side. An average assay of the vein
erial shows $25 per ton. The width
he vein is not yet determined. The
1 has every appearance of being equal
he Annie oershoot on the 500 foot
:1 in width, 01 e body and values."
INDICATES G
T ORE B
Heretofore the principal ore bodies in
the camp have been located on the east
side of the enormous dike crossing the
Josie ground. To the west considerable
work has been done, but little results
heretofore have been attained. The
strike in the Annie ground indicates that
values prevailing on the east continue
west of the dike mentioned, therefore the
ore bodies are much greater than had
been supposed up to the present time. -
The newly discovered ore body undoubtedly exists on Le Roi ground, and
probably in the Centre Star as well, and
the location of such a high grade ore
body will tide the camp over the period
of low metal values, high freight and
treatment charges, until the period of
cheap freight and treatment charges renders possible the utilization of the unbounded supply of low grade ores.

NOTICE.
tities are said to be
i the nickel-copper
ares of the Sudbury district, and
more recent finds have been report-
*d in Wyoming and Oregon. In
Wyoming the platinum was found
in a vein carrying values iu gold,
silver, and copper, the platinum appearing to increase with the in-
brease of the copper contents of the
ore. It will be noted that the platinum in this country is found in
:ombination with the same minerals as that of the Wyoming platin-
side to elect its candidate. As a result the election was
one of the hardest fought in the
history of the city.       <►<;
The Government was quite evidently afraid to appeal to the electors on its record, and had recourse
to a scheme for a railway to the
northern part of Vancouver Island,
which would connect by ferry with
Bute Inlet, the mainland terminus
of the proposed Canadian Northern.
The bait thrown the Victoria
people was successful in landing
Col. Prior in the legislature, but
his majority was so narrow that it
should awaken the government to
the slight hold it has on popular
esteem.

The agreement between McKen- that   the   proposed   railway   from

Government for the building of a
railway from Bute Inlet to the Yel-
lowhead Pass, is another instance
of the people building a railroad for
the benefit of a private corporation.
The giving of a cash subsidy, to be
repaid by a tv o per cent, tax en
the gross ear-lings of the railway
company, should be a sufficient
help without adding 30,000 acres of
land per mile in the Westminster, |
Lillooet, and Cariboo districts.
It is this reckless throwing away
of the public domain to all kinds of
grafters and exploiters that brings
a government into contempt and
the people  it governs to sorrow-
Midway to Vernon will be constructed during the coming summer. A fund of $30,000 has been
appropriated for the purpose ofl
making the surveys, and it is said
that this part of the work is now
being done under the direction of |
Engineer Coyle.
August F. Heinze, the millionaire mine owner of Butte, Mont.,
has a charter fcr this road which
carries a government bonus of |
$4000 per mile. This road wil!
open up the rich mining and agricultural country of the west fork of |
Kettle river, and will greatly shorten the distance by rail between the
Boundary country and the coast.
