A   KOOTENAY   BUSINESS   MAN.  the  Interesting Description of Mr. P. Burns,  Weil-Known Cattle Man.  "Within the last few years the Koo-  tenay   mines   have' made   poor   men  wealthy,  and have created-a diversity  of industrial enterprises^     Mr.   Burns,  the "founder and head.of P. Burns Co.,  left the Province  of   Ontario some  20  years  ag-o,. and . homesteaded in Clan-  william, near the town   of  Minnedbsa,  Manitoba,   but finding' farming- rather  slow for a man  of  his  enterprise  and  ambition,   he rented his farm and took  contracts for breaking- land for some of  the   bonanza  farmers  near   Brandon,  follbwing"tcJ railway contracts until he  reached  Calgary,  where he secured a  government contract for supplying beef  to the Blackfoot Indians,   followed   by  one  for  supplying  the railway camps  during- construction in the  mountains.  When  the  Kootenay  mines opened up  lie was on the spot,   and  as  each  new  camp  was started he opened a branch,  until now he has some 18 shops running  throughout the different districts, viu. :  Calgary, the headquarters of the cattle  business ;   Nelson, the head offices  for  the  meat  trade ;    Trail, Ymir, Kaslo,  Ainsworth,   Rossland,   Sandon,    New  Denver, Silverton,   Slocau   City,   Kus-  konook,   Fisher,   Brooklyn,    Cascade,  Grand Forks, Greenwood, and Midway.  But this does not cover   the  extent  of  the P. Burns Company's operations, as  Mr. Burns has just purchased the large  cold  storage  warehouse in Vancouver,  which he proposes enlarging- ;uil  refitting-  with   new  plant at an car.y date,  so that Vancouver and Victoria C-j.tiers  may find a new competitor.   The Burns  Company were among" the first to  ship  beef  cattle   into  the Yukon, and they  New  Goods  Arriving  Dally*  We Carry  Everything in  BOOKS. Mill ETC.  ^ ^ ^  SMITH   ��  McRAE,  Books, Statiotieiy, Wallpaper. Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GREENV?OOD,     B.C.  have already sent a shipment into the  Atlin country. Unlike marly strong  corporations, the Burns Company do  not. try to drive their weaker competitors out of the .market, while at the  same time their large purchasing- power  enables them to make good profits and  at the same time supply the consumer  - at reasonable rates. Mr. Burns has,'  the faculty of securing the best class  of men in his employ, who take a deep  interest in his "affairs, which adds  greatly   to  his  success."���Colonist.  STUDYING   THE   CAMP.  A Party of English Experts and Capitalists in  Republic.  . Arthur Harrison, Percy Tarbut, and  E. E. Barchard, of London, who arrived last week, have been busy looking at some of the mines of the camp.  They have gone through the Lone  Pine, Insurgent, North Sari Poil, Ben  Hur, and Mountain Lion. They have  carefully sampled some of these and  done their own assaying. They are  pleased with0the camp, and will probably return here later in the season,  when thej' can go to some of the outside camps. .-������/.,-.���  They have a strong financial backing in England. Mr. Tarbutt's firm is  heavily interested in the famous Simmer and Jack mine of South Africa,  and made a great deal of money, in  South African operations. They are  interested in mines all over the world,  and it is just possible they will come  into this part-of the country.���Republic  Miner.  ANOTHER   GREENWOOD   COMPANY.  Secures Three Promising Fractional Claims in  Greenwood Camp.  A company called the Greenwood  Mines, Ltd., composed of Montreal and  Rossland people, has acquired Pinhook,  World's Fair, and Missing.Link No. 2,  in Greenwood Camp. These are all  fractional claims, but together make  more than one full-sized claiml They  are located between the War Eagle and  Knob Hill, an enviable position-from  the mining man's point of view.' As  soon as the snow is off the ground, development work will be commenced on  the properties. It is almost impossible  to continue work on these fractions  without opening up the big ore bodies  that have already been exposed on the  adjoining-properties.'  THE   B.   C.   MINE.  The Work Done There During the  Last Two  Months.  Since the B. C. mine in Summit  Camp was acquired by the Montreal  syndicate, a large amount of development work has been done. Twenty  men, under the superintendence of J.  M. ScrafTord, were kept at work, and  1,000 tons of firstclass shipping-ore was  added to the dump, making fully 3,000  tons in the shipping dump at the mine.  'The recent work was confined to the  50-foot and 150-foot levels. At the  north end of the 50-foot level a drift  has been run 60 feet west all in solid  ore. This drift and the work already  done proves that there is a very large  ore body on the property. At the 150-  foot level the work was continued  along the contact, opening up a body  of very rich ore.  ^mnmmmmfmmfmmmmmimmmmnmimmmmmmmmmmmmfiminmrmnws:  ^  NOTES.  The syndicate represented by Mr.  Alexander Dick, has secured an option  on a controling interest in the Keough  Mining .company, owning the R. Bell,  Remington and Delaware claims in  Summit camp. The option is a short  one and eight men are being kept at  work on the properties 'to open them  tip before the first payment becomes  due. The properties are among the  most promising in Summit camp.  Some very rijh ore is being taken  from ttie Ruby drift ::t the 60-foot  level. The vein appears to be fully 60  feet wide. The main i.-ody i.f the vein  assays 10 per cent, copper and 50 oz-  i;t silver, while a nirro-.v strip gives  low values in copper and 3 ounces in  silver. The Kit! y i.-, under bond to  Mr. Alex. Dick. U'.jfk will be continued on the property.  W. L. Hogg, cue of the owners of  the Stinsfl iiiinc in Deadwood camp,  arrived iY'iui M'mttval on S.mday-  evening and will spend the week in  the district, r-.ir.

The mayor and his working- majority have accomplished but little in  the ocity's intrests during- the three  months they have been in office. The  dam on Twin creek, is yet in a leaky  condition, arid no effort has been made  to repai-i it or substitute something-  that will insure a water supply in case  of fire. Notice was given a few weeks  ago of intention to introduce a by-law  to borrow $30,000. The by-law has not  materialized. Before it can be formally passed and'the debentures sold,  there'is a strong-probability that the  necessary improvements will, be delayed until' next fall. The loan bylaws of last year were passed before  thisdate/but the work was not "commenced until the'fall of the year. It  is'scarcely probable that the council  will beable to continue the practice'of  borrowing- money without any authority to do so.' Such a course is extremely dangerous and will likely lead  to troublesome complications.  In the details of municipal work the  same progressive' course has been pursued. The council were advised two  months agrj that Government street  would be in an impassable condition  unless repairs were made. This matter has been delayed until it became  impossible   to   haul   lumber  from   the   I  mills,   and   building   operations Were  consequently obstructed.  The following- letter, written by Mr.  W. Smith, who was appointed city engineer by, the city council and dismissed by the mayor, will in this  connection   prove interesting reading :  Greenwood, B. C, Sth April, 1899.  The Mayor and Ai.deuman, City of  .   Greenwood :  Gknti.emjjn.���At a regular meeting  of the council you saw fit to appoint  me city engineer, which appointment  could onlj' be cancelled at another  regular -meeting, and then , only on  giving notice or payment in lieu of  same.  I have ordered several necessary  instruments from Montreal and have  been put to considerable expense  thereby.  On my assuming my position, one of  the first of my duties was to examine  the dam and on reporting to the mayor  that the same could be put in shape for  about $1,000. and give satisfactory results.    My opinion was ridiculed.  I should think that the; opinion of a  professional man, who follows the  business,1 would have more weight  than that of an inexperienced person,  and before your body expends some  Si,S00 to $2,000 in experimenting on a  wooden tank which will freeze solid  the first winter, and not give a supply  equal to what can be stored in the  present dam, you should at least con-"  suit some other engineer to confirm or  reject my report.  Under the circumstances I beg' to  tender my resignation, but will hold  the council for all salary and damage  as I may be advised by my solicitors,  that I am entitled to. Yours respectfully, W.Smith.  THE TORONTO WORLD'S RUMOR.  The public are  always interested in  the movements of the big-railway companies.    The   power  of  the   railways  has incraased to such  an extent under  the protection of  the government by  the people and for the  people, that the  individual feels that his future largely  depends upon the policy pursued  by  the railway   company.    Now   the railway magnate has a  habit  of  keeping  a discreet silence  upon   all matters relating to his line, unless he deems it in  his interests to take the public into his  confidence.      The  enterprising   newspaper man is always ready and anxious  to give the public what interests them  most.    He cannot  get  much  information from a Van Home or a Hill, but  he can   readily  jump   at  conclusions.'  Once in a long- while   it  turns out that  his conclusions were correct, and the  editor writes a double  leaded editorial  calling  attention   to  its  enterprise in  publishing   the news  so    many   days  before    its    esteemed    contemporary.  When the conclusions do  not materialize,the railway magnates have changed  their minds and are now negotiating a  new deal.    The fiction in   the  railway  columns of the big newspapers is often  more interesting than   the  real  facts  connected with   the   movements of the  big companies, so that the  public are  not disappointed.  Appearing elsewhere is an article  from .the Toronto World, telling of a  deal between the Grand Trunk and C.  P. R. The Kettle River charter is to  be thrown down because the two big  railway companies have so decided.  We do not place much credence in the  story. ' If true, it is a startling commentary upon the peculiar influences  which railway companies bring to  bear upon the parliament of the country. One would almost suppose that  in this country a charter insuring railway competition for a certain district  could be granted without consulting  the wishes of either the Grand Trunk  or -the G. P. R. The World comes to  the conclusion, however, that the Dominion parliament is divided into at  least two parties, one representing, the  C. P. R. and the other the. Grand  Trunk. If those parties oppose each  other, the result is a hot fight. If they  make a deal, the project in the.interests  of the-people is. thrown down.- -Is-the  Toronto World right ?

A  short time ago the Rossland Miner  published a statement to the effect  that the Canadian Pacific Railway  company had started an opposition  town two miles from Greenwood. In a  short time several -letters were received from those who had invested in  Greenwood, asking if the statement  were true. They were, all informed  that there was no truth in the statement. The Rossland Miner has not  yet made the correction.  *<,  The fSinbab Mining company of  Spokane has been registered as an  extra-provincial company. Mr. D. A.

A  Number of Claims  Located   on  Boundary  Creek.  A   highly   imaginative    individual,  who saw in the  gravel taken from the  channel for Boundary creek a striking  similarity to the sands  of  the  famous  Pactolus,   was    responsible   for   considerable   excitement   in   the  city   on  Fridaj' and Saturday  last and for the  decoration of the banks of the creek  with thin lines of posts.    About forty  so-called   placer   claims were   located  along  Boundary   creek.    The contrac-  ,    tors who  have   in   hand  the work  of  straightening    Boundary   creek,    uncovered some reddish gravel that looked  as if it   might  contain gold.    A placer  claim was located  arid  the stampede  began.    The  whole  creek from below  Deadwood street ^to  Mr.   Shaw's residence, a distance of nearly a mile, was ���  staked   in   two   days.    The   locations  were made on  the "wide open" plan,  the daw governing   the   location    of  placer claims  being  more  honored in  the breach than the  observance.    The  location posts in the majority of cases  were less than the required four inches  square.    What they   lacked in thickness, however, was made up in length.  The notices  are  almost  all  irregular  and the posts wrongly placed.   The locators no doubt   feel   secure   as  it is  scarcely likely that any one  will jump  a placer claim on Boundary creek.  The ground covered by the locations  is owned by the Greenwood Townsite  company and the Canadian Pacific  Railway-company, and before any of  the claims can be worked, security for  damages must be placed, with the gold  commissioner. i  Boundary creek will never become  famous for. its placer diggings. It is  quite, possible to get colors from the  gravel at different points along the  stream, but it is not there in paying  quantities. The excitement has subsided, and five of the claims���a group���  were offered for the. modest figure of  twelve dollars. ,'.,'���  TO   BUILD   BRANCH   LINES.  Canadian Pacific Railway Company Will Tap  the Camps.  ,,The Canadian.Pacific Railway com-  cany has decided to construct the  branch lines into the different camps  immediately. Mann, Foley Bros.-&  L,arsen have secured the contract for  about forty miles of branch lines. ��� Subcontracts will be let and the work  pushed, so that the company will be  in a position to handle the ores of the  different camps as soon as the main  line " is completed. The principal  branches run from Greenwood to  Deadwood and Copper camps, and  from Eholt to Greenwood, Wellington  and Central camps. Short branches  will also be.built to Summit and Long  Lake camps. The construction of these  .branch lines will entail the expenditure  of a large amount of money. There is  no work as heavy as some portions.of  the main line, neither is there much of  what could be classed easy building.  C.   P.   R. AND   GRAND   TRRNK.  It Is Reported That the Two Big Roads Have  Come to an Agreement.  The Toronto World of recent date is  responsible ..for the following: "The  World heard, on what appears to: be  the best of authority yesterday, that  the Grand Trunk Railway company  and othe Canadian Pacific Railway  company had made a deal recently,  whereby the former will remain neutral  in the coming fight for the Kettle  River Railway charter, on condition  that the Canadian Pacific company  offers no opposition to new legislation  in regard to the Drummond Counties  railway. It will be remembered that  last session the fight for the charter  for the Kettle River road in British  Columbia was one of the hottest ever  put up between the two great railway  corporations before parliament. It  now looks as thougn the Kettle River  railway, wanted by Mr. Corbin and his  would be thrown down. The great  opponent last year was the C. P. R.,  and the fight was a close one to the  finish. The Kettle River road is in  straight competition with the C. P. R. ���  in the mining district of British Columbia, the intention being that the  road tap the American lines to the  south of the border.  GREENWOOD   TRADING   COMPANY.  Messrs.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  <V>  MINING   AT   PENTICTON.  Getting   Ready to Ship  Ore  From Okanagan  Lake Mines.  Alderman Wood returned on Friday  from a week's visit to Pentictiori and  -Armstrong. During his absence Mr.  Wood visited his Camp McKinney  mine, where Clement Vascher has been  at work all winter. "There is a 90-foot  tunnel and a 50-foot .shaft ��� oh the  property in pay ore. The ore will  average $20 to the ton "in gold. Mr.  Vascher is building a wharf on Okanagan lake and when this is completed  shipments will be made to either the  Everett or trail smelter, the C. P. R.  having offered a $5.50 rate from the  mine to either of those smelters. This  property and several of Mr. Wood's  Boundary Creek interests have been  merged into a company' which will be  floated in the east. Mr. Wood also  visited Armstrong, where he has heavy  mercantile interests.  A   SPLENDID   MAP.  Another map has just been issued  by Mr. John A. Coryell, C. E., P. L.  S., of Grand Forks, of the Grand Forks  and Kettle River mining divisions. It  shows the mineral claims located up to  April 1st, 1899, in these two mining  districts. Mr. Coryell has been a  resident of the Boundary Creek district since 1887, and has been able to  gather the information now given on  his map during that time, from the  many-surveying trips made for the  government and individuals. The  map is similar to the one he issued in  1897, only, of course, corrected to date.  In the Grand Forks mining division  the rhap shows all the claims in the  vicinity of Grand Forks, on Hardy  mountain, in Wellington, Seattle, Summit, Brown's Knight's and Pass Creek  camps ; and in the Kettle River mining division, the claims in Central,  Skylark, Summit, Greenwood, Smith's,  Graham's Providence, Deadwood, Copper, Long Lake and Kimberley camps.  It is a splendid advertisement to the  outside world of the immense extent of  this rich Boundary Creek mining district. ��� ���  The map is not entirely a mining  map, for, besides showing the location  of the mineral claims, it furnishes authentic information of the locations of  streams, rivers, towns, trails wagon  roads, ranches, lakes, the Columbia  and Western railway (C. P. R.), now  under construction, the projected spurs  of this road, and Corbin's proposed  right of way.  . The map covers territory from about  six miles east of Grand Forks to six  miles west of Midway, and extends  north from the international boundary  line for about twenty miles. It is Mr.  Coryell's intention to add Christina  Lake camps to the map and lithro-  graph it at an early date. At present  he is issuing blue prints to supply the  great demand. The price is $1.50 per  copy and all dealers will have them.  The work is of great merit and will  no doubt convey a true idea of the  vastness of this mineral region, and  will be particularly acceptable to the  prospector, miner and investor for the  information it will convey.  Mr. Coryell and his draughtsmen  have been working at this map for two  and a half months. The publication  is copyrighted both in Canada and the  United States.  KETTLE   RIVER   RAILWAY.  The Toronto Globe's Ottawa correspondent writing to his paper,.says :  The news that the board of trade of  Victoria had passed a resolution endorsing- the Kettle River railway project, has been welcomed by the parliamentary friends of the proposition,  who have greatly increased in number  during the recess. News of the action  of the city council of Grand Forks in  endorsing the project has been conveyed to the senators and members by  means of circulars signed by the civic  officers. The council last week held a  meeting at which resolutions were  adopted impressing upon the Dominion parliament the desirability of  granting- the charter vainly sought  last year by Mr. D. C. Corbin, and tor  which a renewed application has been  made. The cause of last year's attitude on the part of a majority on both  sides of the house were various. Some  gentlemen gave too ready an ear to the  expert lobyists who canvassed against  the measure; others held that the  Canadian Pacific would, as one of  them put it, "do the square tiling,  both because it would be the square  thing- and because there would be  money in it.', The action of the business men of Victoria and Grand Forks  seems to show that the British Columbians are strongly in favor of allowing  Mr. Corbin and his associates to build  the road. The assertion of the opponents of the road that the line would  not be  used   to  build  up  the  country  which it would traverse, seems to be  founded upon hj'pothesis and prejudice. This statement was repeated at  the meeting of the Victoria board of  trade and doubtless will be heard in  Ottawa, regardless of the fact that  Mr. Corbin has enunciated in terms  his intention to give British Columbia  full value for the privilege granted to  him. He promises competitive passenger and freight rates, and points  out that the line cannot be built without the"expenditure of much capital  and labor.  SAVING   WASTE   GOLD.  A little machine is working away  day after day at the Cariboo mill in  Camp McKinney that is not attracting  much attention, but is destined, if it  proves the success anticipated, to make  a great change in mining operations  in the northwest. The tailings from  the Cariboo stamp mill are run through  this machine after the mill has taken  out all the gold it can and are handled  once more at a profit. The machine  makes the most complete saving of  gold ever known. Malcolm McAulay  the owner of the machine, is at present  in.the city.  "One of these machines is being,  used in placer mining on the Columbia  river, but I am the first to use the same  mechanism in handling the tailings  from a qurtz mill," said Mr. McAulay  to a Spokane Chronicle reporter a few  days ago. "The saving of gold by  this machine is so complete that even  the fine particles floating on the water  are secured. By the time we are  through with the rock it is absolutely  without value. ,   ���   ���  '  "The ore from the Cariboo is crushed  in the stamp mill and most of the gold  taken out of it by running it over the  plates. The tailings are then carried  on through the sluice by the water  until they are dropped into my mill,'  which is in the rear of the big plant.  I treat the tailings in almost the same  manner in which they were handled  in the mill, catching the concentrates  on canvas, and the free gold in quicksilver on the plates. <,. The added chemical treatment that I give the rock is so  thorough that it even secures the gold  in solution in the water.  " The amount of gold which is se- ������  cured even by this thorough saving is  small and we would not be able to  handle the tailings at a profit if any  large expense were incurred in operating thcplant. The Cariboo mill crushes  in 24 hours ifroni 45 to 50 tons ore.  After the mill is through with it my  plant secures from 50 cents to $1 a ton  from this ore. My plant is run almost  without expense. The ore is carried  through it by the same water that  drives it through the mill and no  handling is necessary. One man can  operate the plant and not have a very  busy time at that."
