The  development of ' the property is yet being carried on by hand; as the machinery, long since ordered, has only  recently been shipped and it will be  some weeks before its arrival and installation. Everything- is in readiness  to put in place this, new plant���which  is the largest yet purchased to develop  a " Boundary Creek property. The  foundations have all been laid and the  material is ready on hand to house in  the machinery as soon as it can be  hauled, to the mine.'..:  EARLY    DEVELOPMENT.  In   company    with    Superintendent  Henry Johns last Wednesday a Times  representative visited the Sunset mine.  Mr. Johns has only had charg-e of the  work since the first of September and  what he has already  accomplished,  in  barely  four  months,   is of a decidedly  substantial  nature.   Previous  to Mr.  John's taking1  charge, the Sunset had  been developed by a prospecting shaft  sunk to a depth of 185 feet; a tunnel  480 feet in length, connecting with the  shaft 'at the 100-foot level';,."four crosscuts run from this tunnel aggregating-  175 feet of work and a winze sunk from  the tunnel level,90 feet from its mouth,  to a depth of 60 feet. "��� This  work was  merely exploratory and  was done at a  time   when   the   enormous   ledges   of  Deadwood   camp    were    really   little  understood,   and   to say -the'least, the  development   of   the   ledge-���or   more  properly speaking the ore body���on the  Sunset,  was  by  no means the easiest  problem, Mr. Johns' predessors  had to  solve.     This work was all done  before  the present company acquired the mine.  OWNED   IN   MONTREAL.  Early last summer one of the most  successful mining company flotations  took place in the city of Montreal.  There was formed the Montreal-Boundary Creek Mining company, limited,  with a capitalization of "$2,000,000.  This company acquired the Sunset,  Crown Silver and the C. O. D. claims  and the Florence fraction���the group  is now known as the Sunset niine. At  the headof  the company is the Honor- i .  abie  Senator  A. W.  Ogilvie.  and  as-; yr  sociated   with   him  on   the   board   of  directors   are   Hon.   Senator   Turner.  Quebec;   T.    W.   Horn,   Toronto; W,  Barclay Stephens, Toronto, and W. L,.  Hogg and James G. Ross", of Montreal.  These  names   represent  some of Canada's   strongest   financial   men.    The  company   started  off   amply   supplied  with  funds  to purchase the necessary  machinery   and  place  the   mine  on   a>  dividend-paying basis.    When development was resumed   the  company ob- i  tained  the  services  of  Henry   Johns, j  who  was  then on the adjoining mine. :  the,Mother Lode, as its superintendent, j  HECENT DEVELOPMENT |  .The work accomplished since the  first of September includes the enlarging and retimbering of the shaft down  to the 100-foot level. The shaft is now  a double compartment, each compartment being- four and a half feet in the  clear. At the 100-foot level a crosscut  has been started in a northeasterly  direction to the ore body. This work  is in 70 feet and will probably require  fully 100 feet more before the ore is  encountered. The shaft is also being  enlarged and retimbered down to the  200-foot level, where it is proposed to  run a similar crosscut. The shaft 'was  siinkon the ore body which dipped out  at a depth of 70 feet from the surface,  and was continued down through , the  footwall. The crosscut at the 100-foot..  level it is expectedjwiH -encbiirffer this |  wall in a-distaiice of 170 foot. The ore j  in the shaft is said   In  average  310' to!  frames. The old style of frames, extensively used in this section, stand  vertically, resulting in considerable  viberations to the right and left supports, causing a swinging motion to  the rope in its downward course and a  violent jerking to the cage, endangering the lives of-the men. To obviate  this serious fault the superintendent  had the frame built with a batter,  which gives it great strength and  rigidness. The building of this piece  of work was entrusted to J. W. Laurent, a millwright of many years experience, The foundations for the  compressor plant and hoist are completed, ready for the machinery; Both  have been built down to solid formation. The plans for the mine bulidings  call.for one large, building- 81 feet in  length'by. 36 , feet in width-to contain  the boiler room, compressor plant and  hoist and a supplyrooni. Awing from-  this main building 30x45 feet in size  will be used as a shaft house and machine room. This wing will be 55 feet  in height.  THE MACHINERY PLANT.  The machinery ordered is being supplied by the James Cooper Manufacturing company of Montreal. It comprises half of a duplex 20-drill air compressor, a 75-horse power hoist with a  Ledgewood friction, drum and an inch  cable 1,000 feet in length. The capacity will be 300 tons per day. Also  two 80 horse power tubnlar boilers.  The water necessary to run this  plant is pumped up from Deadwood  creek, a distance of 1,400 feet, to a tank  capable of holding- 8,000' gallons  situated about 60 feet higher up the  mountain than the engine room. This  tank has been built and all the piping  laid. Where the, water is taken out  from the creek a dam has been built,  pump house erected and a pump will  shortly be installed. To operate this  pump air will be supplied from the compressor. Fully 5,000 feet of piping has  been laid between the creek and the  mine buildings and connections also  made to supply watter to the bunk and  boarding house and the superintendent's residence, besides running another line 1,200 feet from the compressor to the works on the Crown Silver ���  claim. ���.'!'',"'.'���:.  Other work completed, is the new  superintendent's residence; the enlarging of both' the bunk and boarding  house, which have been painted, and  the building of a stable, 26x16 feet,  with stalls for five horses. .���'.-.  ON THE CROWN SILVER. .  Work has been started in the development of the Crown Silver claim, one.of  the Sunset group and adjoining the  Mother Lode mine on the east. A  A shaft is to be sunk to a depth of 275  feet, which will bring it to the same  level as the 200-foot level on the Sunset. In time connections will be made  at this depth between the two properties. .The shaft is 5x7}4 feet in the  clear and is already down 25 feet. A  smalldonkey engine will be installed  and power to run same will be supplied  by the Sunset compressor as- stated.  The surface showing on this property  is an excptionally big one���even in a  camp noted for its big ore bodies, it is  fully 150 feet on the surface of low  ^old-copper ore.  SHIPPING  FACILITIES.  The completion of the Deadwood  spur, of the Columbia & Western railway to the Mother Lode mine, passing  asdt will directly round the south end  of the Sunset claim and immediately  below the shaft of the mine, gives the  Sunset a peculiar advantage by having  sufficient space between the shaft and  the railway for ore bins, dumping  ground, etc., and a most economical  method for the delivery of its ore, by  rail, to the Greenwood smelter. This  spur has already been built out from  Greenwood, a distance of four miles,  and will be completed to the mine before the end of January. Taking  everything into consideration it will be  seen with its large ore bodies, ample  capital to bring them to the smelter and  efficient management at the head, the  Montreal-Boundary Creek Mining- company is destined in the near future to  reap large profits from its investment  in the development of the Sunset group.  Mail   orders  promptly attended to at  Sprott & Macpherson's.  A SECOND PAYMENT.  Twenty-five Tliousand Dollars is Paid on Snow-  shoe Bond.  Thursday afternoon the second payment .of 525,000 was made on the Suow-  shoe���miile,���in Given wood camp, The  Snowslux: was bonded last March,, by  J. \V. Astlcy, a Rossland mining engineer, for Anthony .1.   McMillan   of the  the ton, and when it is taken "into con-, siitne   city   representing   Loudon capi-  sideiration   that  the  vein   measures on ! tal, for 570,000, and a first   payment of  the surface  at  least  70 feet  in width,  one can   readily grasp   the   enormous  tonnage that is capable of being taken  out.   And S10 ore in Deadwood camp is  a profit paying ore, with a smelter now  being  built within   three miles  of the  mine  and   the   branch line of railroad  connecting   th-:   mine with l:.;e smelter  boing situate barely 50  feci   below the  mouth of the shaft.  on the suri'aci;.  On the surface the work completed  includes the building of a gallo.vs  frame which is 47 feet in height -from  the collar of the shaft. It is an exceptionally fine pieceof work, designed  by Superintendent Johns,and embodies  a new idea in the  construction of such  ten per cent was made. Thomas McDonnell, Robert Wood and Robert Denz-  ler of this city are the owners.  The Snowshoe lies adjacent to the  j Gold Drop, Rawhide and Pheasant  j claims in Greenwood camp. It is dc-  | vcloped to a depth of 200 feet, with considerable drifting on the ore body  The ore is a copper pyrite in a mixed gangtic of calcite, with some spec-  ularite and iron pyrites. An average  value of the ore is said to give 14.6 per  cent copper, 80 ounces silver and from  S10 to 515 in gold. At one time Patrick Clark of Spokane secured the  mine and did considerable development, but closed down at the time the  Republi'.-. mine became the chief topic  in mining circles-  i ���  ���    \r>  ', SoV  1   t��>,  A '  j~i *n  TjHE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  II.

Chesaw, Wash.,  Dec.  29.���[Special  Correspondence to The Times.]���The  incline shaft on the Crystal Butte is  down 242 feet,    and   several   vertical  veins or stringers have just been  encountered.     The men  are at present  engaged in   making chambers  in the  shaft preparatory to opening up these  new veins, which are of good width  and   carry   high   values.     The  south  drift on  the second level is being extended, and is still  in  a fine body of  ore, which gives the same uniformly  high  assays that the .ore on the first  level is noted for.    There is a large  force of men at work in the mine, and  it is expected that the number will be  greatly increased the first of the year.  Work   was recently commenced on  the Dead Horse claim, which belongs  to the Crystal Butte group, by sinking  a shaft, which is down   30  feet.     The  ore is similar to that of  the Crystal  Butte. ���''.':  MILL TO   RESUME.''  The Crystal Butte mill has beeii  shut down for a time in order to make  some changes which were found  necessary by recent ore tests. The  work having been completed, the mill  will be"started at the beginning of the  new year.  Probably the easiest method to describe the interior arrangements of  the mill will be to trace the ore from  the time it is dumped from the wagon  into the ore bin. This bin has a  capacity of 75 tons. Immediately  under this bin is a 9x14 inch Dodge  crusher. After passing through the  crusher the ore drops into the crushed  ore.bin. From thence into a Challenge  feeder, which feeds it to the first set of  12x22 in E. P. Allis rolls. This pulverizes the ore to a coarse mesh which  then drops into the boot of a Belt  elevator, which conveys it into a pair  of revolving trommels. These trommels are provided with 20-mesh wire  screens. The ore, passing through  the, screens, runs direct into a hydraulic  sizer, the oversize passing back drops  into No, 2 set of rolls, the same dimensions as the first set, and is recrushed  to   the  necessary    fineness,    passing  S"  4*4'4*  M.

The coarses material  from the hydraulic sizer passes onto a  series of three silver-plated copper  plates, where the free gold is caught.  From the plates through alauderthe  ore goes to a Wilfley table, where it is  concentrated. The overflow from the  hydraulic sizer, containing the slimes  and finer material, passes to a Cornish  buddle. The first carload of concentrates was shipped to the Everett  smelter by way of Brewster and  Wenatchee.  The power is furnished by a20-horse  power engine and a 30-horse-power  horizontal boiler. The water supply  is obtained from Myers creek.  MACHINERY FOR JIM HILL.  The Chesaw Improvement company  has ordered the machinery for the Jim  Hill, which is situate in the townsite of  Chesaw, and as soon as it arrives the  company will resume work on the property. The Jim Hill is a promising  claim on which considerable workhas  been done. The shaft has been sunk  60 feet and a cross-cut in ore run 18  feet encountering the hanging wall,  but the foot wall has not yet been  found. The whole length of the crosscut is in solid quartz similar to the ore  of the Review mine. The assays range  from $2 to S76 per ton. The company  will employ quite a number of men,  but it will not be necessary to erect a  boarding house as the mine is within a  stone's throw of the restaurants of the  town. ���  WORKING THE PORTSMOUTH.  J. C. McCurdy and Oliver Tufty are  working the Portsmouth, located one-  half mile east of town, and they pro-  Hiee-SQUieHne samples of ore which  runs principally���in-gold, but also  carry a small percent of silver. Mr,  Tufty, who is an experienced mining  man, thinks this property will be one  of the valuable mines of the camp.  BLUE  BIRD STRIKE.  The strike on the Blue Bird, owned  by Nels Nelson and others, has caused  some excitement. This is a copper  property carrying gold in large  quantity. The vein is a monster, being 24 feet wide.  PROMISING OUTLOOK.  The amount of work going on in  this district is astonishing, the hills  are alive with men working on the  different properties and staking new  claims. The camp, which is still in  its infancy, has made wonderful progress the last four months, and will  enter upon the new year with the most  promising outlook, and with the1 prospect of becoming the Cripple Creek of  the northwest.  Jl nil I��a40�� IMHWIW t  I AROUND THE X X X |  I XX HOTEL LOBBIES, f  nlliin��*��.<��>��<��>��'��"i������"��"*������������������'*""n  The most distinguished visitor in the  city the past week was the Honorable  Sir Charles Tupper, Bart., G. C. M. G���  leader. of the Liberal-Conservative  party in the Dominion, who arrived on  Tuesday's train and left the following  day for Rossland. He came here on a  mission, and as he told a Times representative at the depot just before  the train pulled, out, the mission had  been a success. "I want to thank the  people of Greenwood for the genuine  hospitality extended to me by those not  only of, my own 'political faith but by  those who are independent or politically opposed to me. It was a magnificent reception last .night and I shall  not forget it. This is my first visit to  your town, I intended to have visited  Greenwood two years ago when I was  last in Rossland, I recognized then the  importance of the Boundary district,  but unfortunately other plans prevented my coming until now. Your city is  one of the most progressive in .the  Province���it will in time become oneof  the largest. I know what the,surrounding mining camps are capable of  making it."  The Times man asked him his opinion of the prospects for the Liberal-  Conservate party returning to power  at the next general election. His eyes  sparkled and he grew enthusiastic as  he replied, " It will be a repetition of  '78. The Liberal administration is the  worst we have had yet. The people are  tired of it. The mal-administration of  the Yukon is only one of a number of  outrageous and scandalous disclosures  that will be brought to the attention of  the electors. I do not believe now,  since the recent Maditoba election,that  the government will, as they intended  bring on the general electi ons next  month. But when the elections come,  sooner or later, it will be as I have  said the complete overthrow for the  Liberal party."  It is evident to all who met the Honorable gentleman, or heard him speak  for nearly two hours Tuesday evening,  in a really stifling hot hall, that despite  being in his 80th year, he is still in  good fighting trim. Since h�� started  out, on his return to Canada the endoi  September, he has made 49 addresses.  The wear and tear of stumping Manitoba, with its severe climate, just  recently has not told upon him. He is  a fine old gentleman, a thorough politician, and is quite confident that his  party, of which he is the proud leader  will "be returned to power at the next  general elections.  Accompanying Sir Charles were his  son, Sir Hibbert Tupper and Lady  Tupper and Charles Wilson, Q. C, and  wife, from Vancouver; A. W. Ross of  Columbia; F. M. McLeod and John R.  Reavis, editor of the Miner, Grand  Forks.  "James D. Sward, the general western  representative of the James Cooper  Manufacturing company was in town  the first of the week and confirms  recent press dispatches from the east  relating to the big damage suit brought  by his company against the WanEagle  Consolidated Mining company of  Toronto. " My company instituted a  lawsuit against the War Eagle com  pany to recover $150,000 for damages  caused by libellous misstatements in  connection with the machinery supplied  the War Eagle mine and which was  placed iu charge of, and operated by,  ignorant and unskilful workmen. I do  not mean that all the men connected  with the. engineering department of  the mine were incompetent, but I mean  that the men at the very head showed  a lack of knowledge and skill by operating the machinery in a very improper  manner."  ^aiaiiiaaiuiuauuiiuiiiiuiiaiiuiiuiaiiiiiiiiua^  OABLB ADDRESS.

Rich Dividend Producer. ��� Story of its  Discovery by one of the Argouants of the  Cariboo .Placer Excitement���How George  ���B., McAuley of Spokane Made His Fourth  Fortune out of it  A short time back a Colville, Wash.,  paper published a story of the early  discovery of the now famous Cariboo  mine in Camp McKinney.    The  story  ������ went the rounds of the press and  finally landed at Seattle, where it came  to the notice of the mining editor of  : the Post-Intelligencer. Now there  were many inaccuracies in the original  story as'told by the Stevens county  paper, that deserved elaborate correction.    This the P.-I.'s  mining editor  ,    took in hand, and the  following is his  " version  of the romance���if there can  be said to be any���of the discovery and  later day development of  the Cariboo  ���. mine :���   , uj       ;  'A TALISMANIC TITLE.  Something inexplicably romantic attaches to the word Cariboo  in its as-  , sociation   with   mining.    The   golden  episodes of the great Cariboo'placers^  irriihortalized in mining camp song by  ,'   "Old Tom Moore, the bummer sure of  ��� the days '49,'': closed the Iliad of the  Pacific argonauts, and for nearly forty'  years American prospectors have found  in   Cariboo   a   talismanic    title   with  ��� which to conjure the luck of location.  It was asurvivor of the Cariboo gold  fields who christened the. famous  quartz mine of Colorado that 'made  Jerome B. Chaffee independently rich  and a. Unite'd States,: senator. This  property produced a great fortune and  .-.,. sold to Europeans for $3,500,000. ���  .-.���'" Scarcely a mining district iii the:  country, placer or quartz, but has its  ; Cariboo claim ; so it.. may be readily  comprehended that AL McKinney,  when. .he.', named . his.claim on the free  gold cropping he found in a narrow  moun tain cleavage near the headwaters of Rock creek, was inspired by  a proper respect for tradition and  loyalty to the prospector's tenets of  luck.' "!' ���  WHERE LOCATED.     -,'.....  "Fate played some curious tricks  with this particular Cariboo mine.  Its location,: not far from the international boundary on the divide between  the wafers of the Kettle river and  Okanagan, is thus near the tumbling  river from which the original. Cariboo  placers derived their distinct name.  McKinney himself is an old Cariboo  miner. And finally the man to whom  he appealed for help when the mine  ���seemed, to fail him was trained at the  ; scene of the Colorado quartz Cariboo.  ' McKinney did not realize the-value of  the discovery of the'property ; the purchaser guessed better.  "Geo,., B. McAuley is not a mining  promoter in the real estate sense in  in which the expression is nowadays  used. He is ;a mirier, a talented one,  skilled in all the branches of the business. He combines with an unfathomable Scotch shrewdness more practical  underground experience than any conspicuous operator in the northwest; the  spirit and dash of the gambler; rare intelligence, and a remarkable intuition.  He became wealthy in Gregory gulch,  Colorado; was the originator of Silver  Cliff; gained a third fortune in the  Goettr d'Alene, and closed out there  as a banker. Fire, miners' strikes and  credulity in friendship conspired to  wind up three fortunes for him. His  fourth was found in the Camp McKinney Cariboo, which has made him a  millionaire already.  M'AULEY GETS  IN.  When the Cariboo was found twelve  years ago it was more than 200 miles  from railroad transportation. The  most comfortable means of reaching it  was by wagon from Spokane to Marcus, and thence 100 miles on horseback  up the Kettle river Indian trail. McAuley had means at the time of the  discovery,and-loaned McKinney money  to develop the Cariboo.  Some years passed without proving  the property to be worth what was an  ticipated, and as the Boundary country opened up slowly to civilization  McKinney grew discouraged. McAuley  advised him to hang on, but he was resolved to sell, and insisted on McAuley  taking a trip to the camp.  McAuley was in no condition financially to handle the prospect, but succeeded in persuading Phil O'Rourke.  of Bunker Hill and Sullivan fame, and  Jack Hanlej', the present general manager of the Bonanza, to accompany  him in the examination of the property, with a view to organizing a company: ;��� After having carefully looked  over  the  ground, O'Rourke and Han-  ley decided not to invest in it.  In mining parlance, they "turned it  down." McAuley saw with different  eyes. He had received a large part of  his mining training in the richest and  most celebrated gold quartz gulch in  the world���otherwise named Gregoo'���  and noted a similarity in the.ore structure and country rock.  A COMPANY FORMED.  Upon returning to Spokane McAuley  persuaded James Monoghan, father of  of   the   young   ensign    who   died   so  heroically at  Samoa, and Clem  King  of-"the   Coeur   d'Alene,   to   take    the  ground floor on his option, which  they  did, at  a small  outlay.    No pretense  was made at splurging.    Even W. C.  Jones,   the   attorney who  attended to  the  legal work, for the company, received   his  compensation   in   treasury  shares at 5 cents on the dollar,, which  was the price of  the first  issue.    The  capitalization was 800,000 dollar shares.  In spite   of   the   difficulties,   a ten-  stamp mill  was packed  into the Cariboo, and in  1894 it began to grind out  dividends. Then commenced the steady  rise of  value in the stock, the natural  dealing in it,  and   the   inevitable   intriguing.     King   and   several    minor  holders  took fright on one occasion;  and McAuley bought most of the stock  offered.    Not   long  afterward  a fault  was encountered'in the pay chute, and  a   .second     panic    ensued.    McAuly,  neither baffled   hor alarmed,   bought  stock whenever he could get it on the  decline, and with a 300-foot exploration  crosscut   from   the    fault   eventually  tapped  the richer and more extensive  chute..   This was where  his  Gregory  gulch experience came to his rescue.  THE SECOND ACT.  In the second chapter of Cariboo's  history,- the stock having risen in value  to 20 cents a share, several Seattle in-.  vestors luckily took blocks, on which  they realized dividends from the outset. '��� At this ;point: McAuley's genius'  boldly displayed itself. '  With the- starting of the Cariboo mill  a great area of the camp was taken up  and several tentative companies were  organized. Nothing came, either of  the-locations or the companies, and  with the commonly ��� accepted belief,  after the fault had? been encountered,  that the Cariboo was exhausted, work  was suspended generally and the camp  deserted. Having- solved the problem  of the broken ore chute, and determined the trend of the ledge, McAuley  silently and industriously bought on  his own account the adjoining claims  and, extensions. .'',,-.'.',,  At the time of the McKinney discovery it was thought that the ledge  followed the line of the gash in which  the croppings sparingly occured. On  this theory the Cariboo was located up  and clown the gash'or cleavage, and  the neighboring claims were laid  lengthwise in the like direction,  whereas the ledge to.ok an opposite  course, or one'crossing the location the  narrow way. When depth had besn  reached in the mine McAuley saw the  mistake made by McKinney, and consequently purchased ail that contiguous, ground on the ledge he deemed  worth having. ..."���������'...  THE THIRD ACT.  , The next critical interest in the histoid of the Cariboo was a secret effort  to get McAuley out of the mine. This  could only be accomplished by winning  over Mr. Monoghan, who, with McAuley, held the majority of the stock,  and the control of the property.  Sensing the conspiracy. McAuley proposed to Monoghan that a price which  he named should be fixed to a short-  term option, Monoghan himself to  have the first swing at it. The option  was to cover the stock in the possession  of each, and in the event of Mono-  ghan's failure to clean up McAuley  within the period stipulated, McAuley  was to have the opportunity of buying  Mo nog-ban's shares under the same  conditions.  The terms all around were generous  and friendly. Monoghan , couldn't  make the riffle and McAuley bought  him out, thus obtaining complete control of the mine. His next step was to  quietly skim the lloating Cariboo  shares off the stock market and buy a  number of large holders at figures  which brought them an unexpected  return in premiums  quotations.  With the origin a  pocket, so to speak,  went to Toronto, reorganized the company on a. basis of Si,250,000, putting  in the additional property he had purchased, and sold a minority of the reissued stock at a figure which made  him half a million ami better. Ten  additional stamps meanwhile had been  added to the original plant and the  dividend volu me doubled.  quoted steadily ' above par. The company has 4,500 feet on what is unquestionably the mother lode of the  Rock Creek placers. To the unfailing  output of the mine may be attributed  the recent investments and developments in Camp McKinney. The Minnehaha people are putting in 10 stamps,  the Waterloo has five in operation,  and the five on the Banner are grinding out the modest sum of $500 a week.  Three years' supply of ore for 20  stamps are blocked in the Cariboo, and  all fear as to the western continuity of  the ore chute has been dispelled by  finding it across1 the cleavage" at the  200-foot level.  THE FUTURE.  Despite its 12 years of existence,  Camp McKinney is still young. It  will take considerable time to prove  the possibilities of its gold deposits, as  the country is exceedingly difficult to  prospect. It is covered deeply with  dirt, and only here arid therein the  drainages is there anything resembling  solid exposure. To illustrate, an upraise on the ore chute from the 200-foot  level of the Cariboo, which was carried through t,he detritus to air, showed  that free-gold ore of very high grade  ran to a point, at the surface only 10  feet distant from an old prospect shaft  supposed to have been sunk on the  ledge.  As near as can be determined, three  ledges are found in the camp, and the  Cariboo is without doubt the mother  iode.  .,, .The Only Direct Importers in the Boundary Country.

Duncan Ross . : ...Editor.  SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1899.  TUPPER'S TERGIVERSATIONS.  It would possibly be a gracious act  to   allow   the  distinguished  visitor  to  go  away  from   Greenwood   with  the  impression   that   the   large   audience  Who   listened   to   him   on Wednesday  night accepted his strong assertions as  absolute facts and that they are now  convinced that all the political virtues  are   the  property  of   the conservative  party while all the vices are controlled  by  the liberals.   The aged leader  is  certainly entitled to consideration, but  if he is paraded throughout the country  as the honored leader of a-united party  his  utterances  are   entitled   to   some  criticism.       Sir  Charles  paid  a   poor  compliment to the intelligence  of the  people  of   Greenwood   and   to    their  knowledge     of     Canadian      political  events.   His speech was such as would  not be delivered by him in any political  centre in the east.     Sir Charles evidently   made   up   his   mind   that    the  citizens  of  Greenwood  were  a  U-t of  ignorant   jays   and   it  mattered  little  what was given them so long as it was  strong.":   It   is  painful  to see  an  old  man who years ought  to  have taught  him   discretion,   spend   two  hours  in  misstating   facts  and   distorting    the  history of his country.     We intend  in  : a later .issue  to  expose  his misrepre-  resentions   in     connection   with    the  revision of the  tariff, the  Drummond  county railway, the Yukon railway and  the other matters which  he used for  the purpose of maligning his  political  opponents.     Those who  had  not the  opportunity   of  following   Sir Charles  Tupper's political career need  not feel  alarmed  at  his  strong utterances.    It  is a peculiarty  of the man.     He has  always tried to cover his own  political  vices by berating  his opponents.   The  man  who was characterized by a leading conservative as the High Priest of  Corruption and by the chief organ of  his own party as a political cracksman  must play high cards when he bluffs.  His speech requires more attention  than can be given to it in this article.  Reference may be made to one incident  to show the" glaring inconsistency of  the man. He was strongest in his  denunciation of, the Yukon railway  deal. No language was too strong to  describe the iniquity of the.measure  and the enormity of Mr. Sifton's  offence in introducing lit. But it is  well known that when the measure was  introduced Sir Charles Tupper was as  strong in the language of commendation as he is now in condemnation.  He persisted in his advocacy of the  measure until Hon. George E. Foster,  Clarke Wallace and others declared  themselves in violent opposition and  thundered against what even many  Liberals considered an unwise piece of  legislation. Sir Charles, without any  apology or explanation, trampled his  own utterances under foot and attempted to propitiate the wrath of his  colleagues by the violence of his language in condemning a measure which  he had been pleased to endorse.  This political incident shows the  character of the man. Throughout his  political life he. has been strong in  words and vacillating in principles.  ..HOTEL   ARMSTRONG..  ���TO OUR PATRONS-  We  desire to  announce that the  Dining Room  is  now  open to the public.

The  New Westminister Columbian is particularly strong in its advocacy of a  new redistribution measure. It is satisfactory to- know that all the papers  recognize the importance of Boundary  Creek district and are urging that it  be given that representation which its  population and importance warrants.  The government cannot carry out its  obligations without introducing a redistribution measure. If it gives fair  treatment to all parts of the province  it will receive support from both sides  of the house.  Sir Charles fits Beaconsfield's ex-  aggeratedrdescription of W. E. Gladstone : "A sophistical rhetorican inebriated with the exuberance of his  own verbosity���and gifted with an  egotistical imagination that can at all  times command an interminable and  inconsistent series of .arguments with  which to malign his opponents and  glorify himself."  D. R. Kerr wires Sir Charles Tupper that " We are all Conservatives in  Greenwood." This may furnish a reason for some of Sir Charles'reckless  statements.  If Sir Charles were taken seriously  Canadian history would have to be revised.  Sir Charles' vivacity is more to be  admired than his veracity.

If Canadian public life, is to be what  it ought   to   be, men holding positions  like Sir Charles Tupper's must make an  effort  to  raise  the  science of politics  above the level of the huckster and the  charlatan and invest it with  granduer  and dignity. The venerable Sir Charles  ��� has  too  much Tupper  about him and  too little Conservative leader.    He has  retained all the  Tupperian   cleverness  that has  made his  name so dear���so  terribly clear���to   the  majority   of  the  people   of   this   great   country.      His  speech   in   Miller's   hall   on   Tuesday.;  evening  was  but   a   repetition  of  his  other   speeches   delivered   throughout  the  province���excepting that  if   anything Sir Charles was  less guarded in  his  utterances   and   appeared   to have  less respect for the truth.    It is a  sad  commentary on   Canadian public  life,  that the   venerable  leader of  a once  great party should spend his time, and  that of his audience, not in promulgating the views of statesmen, but in extolling the   virtues   and exploiting the  fame   of   one   Tupper.      Sir   Charles  should   have   a  higher appreciation of  the important position he holds.  B. C. Assay Office  s&   4fe   j&  "*if      "iiP     ?if  RELIABLE WORK.  Paid-up Capital > * $6,000,000.

A Vigorous Speech Full of Abuse  of the Present Government. Charles Wilson,  Q. C, of Vancouver, the Provincial Conservative Leader Also Addressed,the Meeting.  Miller's hall was packed to-unconi-  fortableness Tuesday evening .to hear  Sir Charles Tupper expound the theories of Liberal-Conservatism. A fair  attendance of ladies occupied the first  few rows, but unfortunately the hall  was not half large enough to contain  everyone who desired admission, and  many were turned away or stood up, at  the entrance all the evening ��� even  standing room being,at a premium. It  was quite evident, to, a most casual observer, that the majority present were  , by no means of the same political following as the distinguished leader of  Her Majesty's loyal opposition in the  House of. Commons, and while Sir  Charles got a very respectful hearing,  the audience was not an enthusiastically partisan one.  On   the platform was   Sir   Charles  Tupper,  his son," Sir Hibbert Tupper,  Charles Wilson, Q. C, and a local committee,  headed by   Chairman Gosnell  of   the   Liberal   Conservatives.     The  chairman called  the  meeting to order  with a few well  chosen words of welcome to the visitors and called  upon  Charles Wilson; Q. C, president of the  Liberal-Conservative association, Vancouver, to address   the meeting.    Mr.  ��� Wilson told the audience of his 37 years'  residence in the province and of his unbounded faith in the party.    Speaking  on local subjects he touched upon: the  subject of redistribution, according to  his theory, which  was on a basis  of  population, plus the possibilities of its  growth, whether  in an agriculiural or  mining section;    He believed every encouragement, should   be  given by  the  party to the development of the great  mining: resources of the province and  to the1 construction of railroads, especially to the building of the Columbia  & Western past Midway and on to the  coast. , At the conclusion of Mr. Wilson's short talk, Mr.   Gosnell read the  following   congratulatory   address   of  welcome to Sir Charles Tupper.  THE ADDRESS.  To the Hon. Sir Charles Tupper, Baronet, K.~,  M. G.. etc.:  Permit me, Sir Charles, on behalf of the citizens of Greenwood and the surrounding mining  camps represented here to extend to you a warm  western welcome, and to express the peculiar  gratification which your visit affords them.. As  citizens, apart, from political considerations, we  especially welcome you as a representative and  . distinguished son of Canada. While as a young  and hitherto practically inaccessible community we are greatly honored by your presence,  we nevertheless feel that there will be iu some  measure a reciprocity of'benefit, inasmuch as  you will return from here with a personal and  more intimate, knowledge of a district that iu a  few j-ears will be a potential factor in the industrial wealth and importance of the Dominion.  Permit me also, on behalf of the executive  committee and the Liberal Conservatives of the  Boundary Creek district, to assure you of the  pleasure they experience in having with them  the leader of the Liberal Conservative party,  the life-long ally of and the legitimate successor  to Sir John A. Macdonald, whose name has become indelibly associated with their political  traditions and Ilia history of their country. We  recognize that iu half a century of statesmanship your services in promoting every gi'eat  national movement have been greater In effect  possibly than those of any other man in that  long p'eriod during which Canada has risen  from comparative insignificance to relative  greatness. From the time you fought with  characteristic vigor and conspicuous success  the provincial battles of reform iu your native  province up to the present there has been no  flagging iu the zeal and energy of your efforts  on behalf of Canadian interests and Canadian  development. As one of the fathers of and  strongest factors in bringing about confederation; as one of the chief promoters : f the Canadian Pacific Railway and moulders of our trade  I province, which was ever manifest, has' undoubtedly been - greatly increased, and to him,  and. to Mr. Charles Wilson, Q. C., your confreres of this occasion, we also extend a cordial  welcome. An old, respected and influential  resident of the province, Mr.-Wilson . has. contributed as a pioneer and public man to its'suc-  cess, and assisted in establishing its prestige.  We look to see him occupy that prominent position in the affairs of state in. this province for  which his long experience and intimate knowledge of British Columbia, his recognized abilities and personal honesty and integrity so  eminently qualify him. Needless to say that to  Lady Tupper and Mrs, Wilson the doors of our  hearts are wide open, and he would be lacking  in the proverbial gallantry of mining towns if  we did not suitably recognize their welcome  presence. We trust that 3-ou will all carry away,  kindly impressions of this city and district and  come again as soon as circumstances will permit. As Liberal Conservatives,' Sir Charles,  we wish your mission success, and while perhaps not so pronounced in our pylitical proclivities as older communities, in no part of Canada  will your followers more sincerely rejoice than  in the Boundary to see you returned to power at  Ottawa and .strongly entrenched once more iu  the hearts of vour countrymen.  THE   REPLY.  .    ,  Upon rising ta reply Sir Charles received a warm welcome. When quiet  was restored he commenced his address  iu'-'a quiet, dignified manner, warming  to his subject as the speech progressed.  Space prohibits a full report of his  speech.    In part he said:  "Mr. Chairman, Ladies and  Gentlemen���1 want to thank the Liberal-Conservatives  most  kindly  for this very  charming, and so far as myself is concerned, too  Hattering address, also to  your  kindl3'  mention of the  ladies of  our party who are here present. It was  a most agreeable surprise to me to find  such a fine city here on my arrival, and  I think   I ain   safe   in   saying it is destined to become one of the rising, cities  of this great Dominion.   I come before  you  tonight to  tell  you something of  the principles  of the party I have  the  honor of belonging to .   As the  leader  cf this,party I believe  it is my duty to  come  among you to learn what your,  wants are, and for this reason I am visiting every section of the country. One  cannot do justice to these rising communities.     Who  would have. believed  that scarcely four years  ago this town-  was a  wilderness, unci  today it is bustling with humanity and  building   up  to become a big city.  CONSIDERATION OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS.  "Next to religion, or I might say second only in importance to religion,  there is nothing so vitally important to  the electors of the country as the question of the consideration of public  affairs." .'.-���,-  He then briefly sketched the growth  of Canada from the time of Confederation; how the two parties came before  the people and the necessity for the ex  istence of two political parties; what  each had performed, and invited a comparison of their past records.    He took  credit to the Liberal Conservative party  for bringing;about confederation   notwithstanding  the  greatest opposition.  Continuing, he said:    "The Conservative party was first and foremost���not  alone, but combined with the leaders of  the Liberal party���to take up the question of confederation. The Hon. George  Brown���'' "God bless him!" exclaimed  a gentleman at the far end of the room.  "Yes,  and I  add   'amen','" answered  Sir Charles���"who was the leader of  the Liberal party and who had formed  a  coalition  of  the  Liberals  with   Sir  John   Macdonald,  though  he lent  his  powerful aid to that work, became restive, left the government and adopted  the opposition, not to confederation, let  me say, but to the parties who had the  work in hand to carry it out.    The result was that without his aid confederation  became  an accomplished fact in  1866  and  Canada,   old  Canada,   Nova  Scotia   arid   New   Brunswick   became  united in confederation^    The result of  Mr.   Brown's  opposition   left it to  the  policy of protecting, Canadian industries..' The people took us at our word  and we were returned to power by an  overwhelming majority,'composed of  the   united  consolidated  Conservative  the neck is also like him, the chest, the  legs are practically the same; but if  you will put a tape on this horse and  measure him from tip to tip you will  find   that  this horse is 71-100ths of an  ���V'  party, strengthened by the Liberals ; inch shorter than the National Policy  who had become disgusted with the  maladministration of the Mackenzie-  Laurier government and who said, 'Get  you gone and give pla~e to better men.'  What did we do? Did we do as they  do���turn round and give the lie to all  we had been saying on- the floor of the  house for five years, or did we carry  out our pledges? Well, they said 'We  did not believe you would do it.' But  when we brought in our protective policy of 1879 they said:   'We frankly ad-j     "When in  power the Conservatives  horse.' (Laughter.) When all their  tariff arrangements were completed  they had only reduced the tariff, according to Hon. George L. Foster's  calculations, just 7l-100ths of one per  cent, or le^ss than three-quarters of a  cent on each S100. So that Sir Wilfrid's  only claim to the horse was that he had  shaved 7l-100ths of an inch off the animal's tail, otherwise it was the original  horse.

'In this new community where mining interests are paramount, the population is more or  less cosmopolitan, and along with native-born  Canadians of every provinco, who are proud of  rait that you have kept your word, but  you have ruined the country.' (Laughter.) We established industries, there  was progress and vitality, and we carried this all out in spite of their obstructions.  PROGRESS OR OBSTRUCTION?  "I want to tell you that my party  stands for progress. The.Liberal party  stands for obstruction. We stand in a  position to challenge the independent  honest elector. If the Liberals redeemed the pledges they made at the  last general   election   they would soon  were charged with extravagance. The  Liberals pledged themselves to reduce  the expenditures. The fact is that we  find instead of any reduction in expenditures it is increasing. In .1896  the total expenditure in Canada by the  Conservatives was $42,000,000. In 1897,  under the Liberal part3*, it was raised  by ��3,300,000; in 1898 it went up to  S8,300,000 more; for 1899 it is to be SS0,-  000,000, and the vote for 1900 places it  at ��60,000,000. What do you think of  this?" A voice in the crowd: "It shows  we have got money to burn." (Laugh- j  ter.)  He took up at length, to the credit of  his   party   and   himself, the history of  the  building of   the   Canadian Pacific  railway  Nest  Pass  brunch.      Sir   Charles  de-  W. J.

We trust  that your powerful advecacv in parliament will  be on our side in endeavoring to secure the. construction  of that last link, affording as it will  to the people of the Boundary and those of the  coast a mutual advantage iu respect to the trade  of British Columbia.

This they did by making a  policy of protection. We took a leaf  out of their book. We turned to the  country, and said on the floor of the  House of Commons:    "Put us in power  I should give them credit for it, but I  am inclined to resent when they bodily  steal our policy. Let me illustrate a  little. Suppose Sir Wilfrid and myself  were to get up a horserace, and it was  arranged that the electorate of Canada  should be present to see it. I have got  my National Policy horse carefully  groomed I suppose, and I go to tell my  man to lead him out, when I find that  the stall is empty. I rush to the course  in great astonishment, look around and  I suddenly find Sir Wilfrid mounted  I upon my ho-se and decked outin.nl!  his jockey colors, t say: 'My dear Sir  Wilfrid, what does all this mean? This  is a fearful mistake. This is not the  old-fashioned, broken-winded,spavined  Free Trade horse; that is my National  Policy horse.'    'Not at all,'he said.    I  nounced the corrupt methods the Liberals had of obtaining .votes. He  closed his address -with a strong plea  for a recognition of the great benefits  conferred upon Canada by the Liberal  Conservative party, who, he assured  his hearers, would be returned to power  and oust out the Liberals, whom he  characterized as a reeking mass of corruption.

He  Says The Sunset Ore Body can Only be  Measured by the Acre���It was Located  in 1888���Now Owned by a Stock Company���Production Promises to Lower  the Price of Copper.  ' Crowded out last week's issue.)  " The Sunset is a world-beater, and  there is no mistake about it. Look at  this ore; 't's nearly solid copper, and  lean tell you there are hundreds of  acres of this stuff on Copper motin-  "taiw.."^,  ��� The-  speaker    was     R.   A.   Brown,  known    to   every   prospector  and   old-  timer in the district as "Crazy" Brown,  and he delivered himself in this forcible  manner  when   exhibiting some pretty  '  bornite  ore  to   the  TiMKS   man.    Mr.  P.rown   arrived   Wednesday   afternoon  from    the   Sunset, mine,    on     Copper  'mountain.    He was just as enthusistic  as ever.   Continuing, he said :; "I have  : sent to Grand Forks 125 pounds of this  kind of ore,  taken   out  after  the   last  row of shots   had   been   fired, previous  to my leaving.    This character of ore  will average 40 per cent copper.  WHEN LOCATED.  ���- "I first located, the Sunset iii 188S.  I did not understand what it was, but  I thought a whole lot about it, and in  1892 I went back and relocated it. Last  summer was organized the Sunset  Copper Co., .with" 2,100,000 shares. I  still retain .600,000 shares, and I am  buying all I can pick up ; yes, and my  salary is being paid in stock, too.  This will show 3'Ott what the people  '. think of it over there," and he produced for the reporter's inspection a  letter ordering a block of stock at 25  cents a share. "I never, solicited a  buyer of this stock in my life, but the  people know it is going- to be a big  mine and want to get into it. The  wagon road up the mountain to the  mine is" built, and we huve installed  our machinery. I want to say we  have got the best little  steam hoist in-  ��� British Columbia. It is a 12-horse-  power boiler and engine. We are  working three eight-hour shifts in the  sinking of the main shaft. It was  clown 60 feet when I left. In size it is  4x8  feet  in   the   clear.    The   mine  is  ��� situated 12 miles south from Princeton,  on the summit of Copper mountain.  As to the vein-���well, the best living  expert cannot estimate its size. We  are right in the center of a mineral  zone. We measure the ore by the acre,  and we have 750 acres of it. The only  question to be decided is, does the ore  go down? We shall settle that by our  shaft. In values the ore will run from  10 per cent .up to 82 per cent copper  and from'$3 to $8 in gold per ton. ,On  the surface we had little or no gold  value. As depth is gained the gold  values noticeably inc> ease. I have  great faith that the development of the  Sunset will prove it to be the biggest  copper mine in the West.  WILL LOWER THE  PRICE OF COPPER.  '��� Yes, sir ; I predict it will lower the  price of copper tc 3 cents. There are  dozens of fortunes in sight right now  on the surface,, and if the ore holds out  with depth���well, we shall all be rich,  very ri~h."  Mr. Brown was in a happy mood,  and no one Who knows him will begrudge him making the many fortunes  he speaks of so easily. His company,  of which he is president and general  manager, is said to be amply supplied  with funds to carry on the work of  development. Those who have visited  this big showing'pronounce it to be all  that has been claimed for it.  Mr. Brown also says that BobSteven-  son has struck it rich on the Wild Horse  claim, situated on the same mountain,  about 3000 feet :iort!ien��t of the Sunset.  The assays of ore taken from the surface of this claim show a value ol  Sr'2.15 a:i..l S48.40 in gold and copper.  Mr. Stevenson has two shifts at work  sinking.  IN CAMP McKINNEY.  E. c. Warrer. Tells "The Times" the Latest.  News.  E. G. "Warren, M. E.. returned last  Saturday from a two weeks' visit to  Camp McKinney. Mr. Warren is  superintendent of the Kamloops mine  in this camp. Toronto and Montreal  capital is largely interested in the  McKinney-Kamloops Mining Company- Speaking of the development  now going on on the Kamloops and in  in the camp generally, he said : "We  have just installed our hoist and pump.  The hoist is a 6x8 one, capable of  sinking to a depth of 300 feet. The  pump is a No. 5 Cameron. The power  is obtained from a 40-horse-power  boiler.    Our intention is to  put in two  r.sachine  drills   and  take the air from  the Minnehaha compressor.  KAMLOOPS DEVELOPMENT.  "The shaft is down 80 feet and will  be continued to the 100-foot lerel,  where a station will be cut out and  sinking and drifting continued concurrently. The shaft is not on the  vein, but we expect to catch it at a  depth of from 150 to 200 feet on its dip.  This is the Minhehaaa vein, and it  has been traced right across the Kamloops claim by surface open cuts and  two prospecting shafts, one of which  is 50 feet in depth. The bottom of the  50-foot shaft has five feet of ore of a  good milling value. We have a force  of 15 men at the mine.  ON"   THE   MINNEHAHA.  "The Minnehaha is working- two  machines steadily in some splendid  ore They are raising on the vein  from the No. 1 level. I understand  they will shortly resume the sinking of  the shaft down from the 200 level. On  account of the scarcity of skilled mechanics it will probably be six weeks  yet before their mill is completed and  ready to crush ore. The mill is a 10-  stamp one, supplied by the Jenckes  Machine Company. The mill building is all completed.  ON THE  WATERLOO. ���  " Thedrift on . the first level of the  Waterloo, in the direction of. the  Wiartbn claim, is in over 200 feet. I  was down in this drift and can say it  has certainly a wonderful showing,  there being fully seven feet of solid  ore. They are milling the ore from  this drift. J. cannot say what their  last run amounted to, as it has not  been announced. The clean-up cannot be anything but rich, as the ore is  a splendid grade. Superintendent  Murphy is elated over the showing in  the mine and thinks it's as good as the  Cariboo. It is the intention of the  superintendent to. upraise to the old  stiaft, and also to sink the present  working shaft another 100 feet. This  last work will be started as soon as  they, have their new hoist installed,  which will be the largest in the camp,  being a 10x10 Ledgerwood, supplied by  the Hamilton Manufacturing Company.  ON THE  OTHER  MINES.  " On the Cariboo work is progressing as usual. Plenty of ore is coming  to the surface^' and their 20-stamp mill  is going night and day. The Fontenoy,  Little Cartboo, Mammoth and Shannon-Dolphin are all being energetically developed. With one machine the  Sailor is making nine feet a day in  their drift on the 80-foot level, and  they have already opened up several  chutes of good ore. The Equador,  Granite and Banner, Rosey, O'Shea  and Wiarton are not at present being  worked. It seems a great pity that  some effort is not made to resume development on these properties," concluded Mr. Warren.  Municipality of The City of Greenwood.  BY-LAW NO. 38.
