RICH STRIKES
OF COPPER ORE j
Important Find on Spoke at Aspen Grove—Good Ore on j
Johnson Claim, Copper Mt
Mr. T. Sloan, who returned a few days
ago from Aspen Grove camp, reports the
finding of an' immense ore body on the
Spoke claim, belonging to Messrs. Budd,
Aldous, and Roberts.
. This claim is one of a group belonging
to tbe above-named parties, which consists of the Joe Dandy, Red Bird, Gold
Bug, Spoke, and Snowshoe.
It was staked a little over a year ago as
ah extension to the Red Bird and a small
lead was found, on which last year's assessment work was done. The new ore-
body recently discovered is said to be
from 20 to 30 feet wide, and traceable the
full length of the claim.
Specimens of the ore exhibited in town
are extremely rich in copper glance, and
judging from appearances would carry
easily 20 per cent, of the red metal.
Tbe story of the discovery of the new
lead is told as follows :
The owners of tbe group have a force
of 5 men at work doing assessments. Mr.
Budd, who is one of the owners, hurt his
hand in some way and was unable to
work, so in order to get in time, took a
7 pick and started to prospect some of the
ground they had located, with tbe result
above recorded.
The Hub claim belonging to Mclntyre
and McDonald, which has also a fine
showing, adjoins the Spoke.
THE JOHNSON C
Messrs.. Willarson and Johnson made a
good strike recently on the Johnson
claim while doing assessment work.
In sinking on a small stringer of magnetic iron showing a little copper stain
on tbe surface, they uncovered a lead of
very fiue copper ore.
At a depth of 12 feet the 5x7 shaft
was entirely in ledge matter, with an exceptionally rich shoot of copper pyrites
and black oxides of copper, over two feet
wide.
Another shaft 8 feet deep was sunk at
a point further along the vein, with the
result* of proving the further continuance
of the ore body for some distance.
The owners have also been doing work
on the Ada B., Ada B. Fraction, and
Centre Star claims, and Mr. Willarson
reports the finding of a second lead on
the Ada B., which he judges to be between 20 and 25 feet wide. The Ada B.
is already known as one of the banner
properties of Copper Mountain, and this
'al-l
No. 1 lead, on which the principal
work has been done is 60 feet wide. Average assays taken from the shaft show
the ore to run between $10 and $15 in
gold and copper, while picked specimens
run as high as 15 per cent, copper and
$13 m gold.
A shaft 10 feet deep was sunk and an
open cut with a 12 foot face was run on
the No. 2 lead and the excellent speci*
mens of native and yellow copper shown,
bear testimony to the  grade of the ore
Work on the Centre Star has been confined to the running of a series of open
cuts for tbe purpose of exposing the ore
body.

Complaints are being made to the Minister of Mines to the effect that the 8

A meeting will be held in the Mcintosh Hall, Saturday, June 28th, at 3 p.m.,
for the purpose of organizing a branch of
the Settlers' Association of British Col-
umbia. All interested in the matter are
requested to attend.
KELLY CREEK.
Holmes and Johnson have completed
their second aseessment on the Monte
Carlo claim. They have been working
on a lead of white quartz showing large
quantities of iron pyrites and a little galena.   The vein is  about   2% feet wide,
.'.Assessment work has also been done
on the Silver Queen claim. An open
cut 14 feet long was run on a lead of
white quartz, similar in appearance to
that of the Monte Carlo. The vein was
only eight inches wide where the work
was begun, but has widened until it
measures 26 inches in the bottom of tbe
cut. The Silver Queen belongs to Mr.
Robt. Stevenson.
'     THE RIVAL CLAIM.
Mr. Robert Stevenson has finished as-
■sesssment work on the Rival claim, situated about six miles fiotu Princeton,
down the Similkameen river.
The work consists of a 12 foot open
;cut. The lead-is about 8- feetrwide,an'd
average assays give 5 to 6 per cent, in
copper and $4 to $8 in gold. Mr. Stev-
enson expresses himself as well pleased
with the improvement shown as the result of the work done.
The Rival adjoins the Rob Roy which
has also a good showing of ore.

Following the discovery of platinum
in ore on Kennedy and Wolf Mountains,
comes the report of the finding of this
precious metal on a claim calf ed the. Miss
Dundas, belonging to/Mr. D. Coutney
and situated on One \jJule Creek, about
three miles north east of Princeton. We
publish below a letter from the Waratah
Minerals Co., Ltd., of Philadelphia, Pa.,
dated Feb. 13, 1902, which is self explan-
Mr. Daniel Coutney,
Olalla, B. C.
Dear Sir,—Having analyzed your
samples No. 1, Legal Tender; No. 2,
Miss Dundas, and No. 3, Cream of Camp,
sent to us on the 8th of January, we find
that Nos. 1 and 3 contain traces of platinum metals, and that No. 2 is quite rich
in platinum metals. In fact,1 so rich that
we feel sure it will pay you to concentrate some of this ore, and notify our representative in San Francisco, Cal,', Col.
W. P. Butler, so that he can make arrangements for the purchase thereof.
Very truly yours,
The Waratah Minerals Co., Ltd.
Mr. Coutney also has a letter of more'
recent date from the same company advising him that their field representative
will be in this district shortly for the
purpose of examining the leads from
which the platinum assays were obtained.
From all appearances the fame of the
Similkameen as a mining country will
not depend entirely on its coal and copper deposits. The finding of rare metals
in quantities that make possible their
profitable extraction cannot fail to attract the attention of the mineralogists of
FIRE GAS FOUND.
The operator at one of the diamond
drills now at work between the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers, reports
the finding of large quantities of carbur-
etted hydrogen gas in one of the drill
holes. This gas is commonly known as
fire gas, and is found in connection with
many coal deposits. On account of it
igniting very readily, it has been responsible for many coal mining accidents.
On Sunday there will be service at
Ashnola at 11 a.m., and at Princeton in
Mr. Mason's house at 7:30 p.m. Sunday
school at 3 p.m. On the following Sunday service will be held at Granite Creek.

THE .RAILWAY BILL.
The bill providing for the construction of the Coast-Kootenay
line has passed its third reading,
and now needs but the signature of
the Lieutenant-Governor. Because
of the great and immediate necessity for the road, a number of the
opposition members who were very
much opposed to the terms of the
contract, voted with the government. Smith Curtis opposed the
bill on the ground that it was a C
P. R. scheme to still further delay
the building of the line. He objected to the length of time allowed
the contractors in which to commence construction ; the lack of
any provision for government control of rates; and the failure of the
administration to stipulate that the
road should be operated as a competitive line free from C P. R. control. Mr. Curtis' objections to the
contract were Quite justified.
The vacillating policy of the government on the railway question,
and its evident desire to sacrifice
the people for the benefit of the
corporations, has destroyed all public confidence in it, and the quicker
it steps down and out the better for
British Columbia. Few will be the
tears shed at its burial.
PROSPECT   CLOSELY.
The strikes announced this week
on our front page—one at Aspen
Grove and the other on Copper
Mountain—serve to emphasize the
need for close and careful prospect-.
ing of claims and the advantage of
doing a little work, where possible,
wherever indications of an ore body
are found. Some of the very best
claims in the district have been located merely because of their proximity to  other showings.
In many cases the ore bodies that
afterwards made them well known
were not discovered till some time
after.
surface showing, with the result of
proving the existence of a promising ore body.
A number of the early prospectors, in the Boundary worked on
the theory that if a lead had good
ore in it, it would crop to the surface somewhere, so in place of sinking expensive shafts they sought to
develop their claims by open cutting their lead in a great many
places.
Some of the most successful pioneer prospectors of the Boundary
district proved their properties in
this way.
EXCHANGE  COMMENTS.
We've got the champion freak
legislature of the universe. The
other day the leaders of the opposition moved a vote of confidence
motion in Mr. Speaker, which was
rejected by the government.—Vancouver Independent.
Premier Dunsmuir wants to go to
London to represent the people of
B. C. at the Coronation. This is a
new role that our worthy James
should not assume without rehearsal. His Victoria experience as the
representative ofj. Dunsmuir, grafter, unfits' him for any such commission.—Vancouver Independent.
