'   ■ ■.:';, ., .      Developed.'    ;l
In addition, to the Mother Lode, Sunset,   and  other   big- Deadwood   Camp
"properties, there are several locations
that give promise of making big mines.
All that is necessary ,is development-
work. .Prominent among these is the
London, owned by Greenwood ^parties.
An option was taken-on this property
a few days ago upon the following condition :—$10,000 cash, or 520,000 on a
bond, 10 per cent, down, balance to be
paid within a year. The London is a
full claim lying about 1,000 feet distant
. from the Mother Lode, and in the direct ■'•
trend of the ledge. It adjoins the
Standard on-the North and the Marguerite' on the south. Two or^three.
assessment works have been done on
the property. The surface is a huge,
iron-cap similar in appearance to the
Sunsets Messrs: Phil. Aspinwall rand
Johnson  have  given  a--contractfor a-
: 100-footshaft oh the adjoining- claim..
This shaft-is being sunk 400 feet from
the side-line of the Loiidpu.-.'
Work is also being done';onr the Victoria and Queen of Sheba adjoining
properties. The,:Queen of Sheba was
recently bonded by Edward C. Finch
of Rossiarid: Mr." CV L.' Hoffman,; who '
bonded the St. Lawrence, has awarded
a contract for1 a iOO-fobt shaft.'

The "annual report of the minister of
; mines", full of ^interesting^ .statistics
regarding the mineral resources of the,
province;,! has vjust/beeu issued: Mr.,
Robertson,. provincial mineralogist,
was unable-.to visit .Boundary. Creek.
He embodies: in his report the Vancouver News- Advertiser' correspondent's resume of the progress'' made in
the past year. The total production of.
minerals for all years, including 1898j
amounted to $123,417,'326. Of this
amount $57,960,819 represents the gold
production. . Speaking of the develop- .
ruent of the mineral resources of the
province; Mr. Robertson says :
" The Province of British Columbia,
although as yet ionly in .its. early
stages of mineral development, has
entered into the company of the great
mineral producing .countries of the :
world, with no uncertain step. Confidences in her future is based upon the
rich promises that to a large extent '■
are ' guaranteed- by the'results now
being obtained from the comparatively
few. mines, which show what has been
and is being actually accomplished,
figures being the only measure we
have for commercial success. Attention is directed  to  the comparatively

recent growth  of lode - mining, and to
the   greatly  increased   production   of
recent   years,. such production   being.!,
now eight or nine times what it was in,
1895, or oyer 20 times as great as in 1893.
"From thesefigures it will be seen
how young our lode mining industry
is, and how rapidly it has increased;
and it will then be understood that,
.almost of necessity, but a small, portion of our known mines have had
time to enter the lists as producers.
" Increased production during the
last year is'to' be rioted in- gold, both
placer and lode ; also copper.     ,     ,
" While the total mineral'production
of the; province shows an increase,
even over last year, the increase is not
marked as it would have been but for
the serious, dropping'off in thei output
of silver-lead ores.
"The reason for this decrease^seems
to be the unusually low price of silver
during the latter part of 1897 and the
beginning of 1898, together with the
uncertainty'as to the future price of
the metal. tFor '. the time being this
paralized many existing ventures and
prevented new ones being started to
' work properties of this nature. The
drop in price coming, as it did, shortly
'after a rise in the duty on lead imported
into the United States, then our only
market, deterred- many of our mines
from starting work this season. When
the price of silver' increased again, in
the latter half of the year, it was then
too late to begiri^Op'eratious."

CONSISTENT   PATRIOTS. :  Certain coast papers are strong- in  their denunciation of interior contemporaries, because the latter have suggested the advisability of boycotting  the avowed enemies of the interior.  These organs loudly asserted that the  province would never prosper while  rank sectionalism is preached. It is  no new thing for irresponsible papers  to adopt every discreditable tactic in  order to frustrate the efforts of those  who are seeking their rights, and then  denounce them for resenting such conduct. The journals referred to never  lost an opportunity to denounce the  efforts to secure a charter for a competitive railway in the Boundary  Creek country. Their stock argument  was that the Corbin railway would divert trade into American channels.  The same papers are now equally enthusiastic ��� in. their efforts to secure  ferry connection between Victoria and  Port Angeles. It is all right to secure  connection between the American side  and Victoria, but all wrong to secure  connection between the American side  and -Boundary Creek. The Victoria  papers have a perfect right to denounce railway competition for Boundary creek, but the interior papers have  no right to discuss ferry competition  for Victoria. The difference lies in  the fact that the coast papers referred  to ate merely subsidized organs which  sacrifice consistency in the interests of  their masters. The interior papers,  which   they   abuse,   are   independent  enough to advocate what is right and  in the interests of the province. The  Colonist loses no opportunity to preach  to independent papers like the Nelson  Tribune; the same Colonist has done  much to foster'the" spirit of sectionalism and engender a bitter feeling iii  the interior against coast cities and  coast business men. '  CONTROLLING   THE   RAILWAYS.  Hewitt Bostock, M: P., has succeeded in securing a promise from  Hon. Mr. Blair, the minister of railways, to the effect that no railway  company would be allowed to use its  powerful influence' in order to miss  existing towns. This decision of the  government is an important one. It is  useless to discuss individual and  special cases. Generally speaking it  is an exceedingly dangerous thing to  allow powerful railway companies to  become stronger than the people. Railway companies, and particularly those  subsidized by the people, -should be  under government control.  The trouble  about  townsites in the  West Fork country  is  a. tribute: to its  mineral richness.    Were  it not known  that the West  Fork  is  a  country of  enormous possibilities no special effort  would be made  to  secure  a  townsite.  There are certain  matters  in  connec-;'  tion with the rival townsites on Beaver  creek that will probably  be ventilated  in   the   courts.   While   a case is sub:  judice, it is, the usual practice to re-,  frain   from    expressing' opinions    or  making   statements   that   are not in;  consonance with the facts.

THE  WINNIPEG   MINE.  The Rossland Miner Learns Something About  a Boundary Creek Property.  Duncan Mcintosh, president, general  manager and  Resident  director of the  .Winnipeg Mining  and  Smelting company,   of    Wellington    camp   in   the  .   Boundary Creek country, is in the city  and may be found at the Kootenay. In  ' speaking of the Boundary   Creek  section yesterday, he said-: " Just as soon  as sthe   Canadian Pacific railway   is  ready to receive ore from the Boundary  Creek section there will be a large .tonnage available.    There are. at least ten  large mines in that section which will  be ready to market  their ore.    I think  the tonnage right  at the start will be,,  as large as from  any of the  mining  camps  in  British  Columbia.    Among  the mines that will begin to ship is the <  Winnipeg.    We  have considerable ore  on the dump, and besides we  will in  the meanwhile take out'considerable  more,   and   by   the time" the road is  finished ,whe will have perhaps 5,000 or  > '6,000 tons of ore on the dump.  " In order to expedite the work of  development, a seven-drill compressor  was yesterday purchased by me from  ���'. Frank R. Mendenhall, of the Jenckes  Machine company. The plant includes an' 80-horsepower boiler, a-compressor and three giant drills. These  will, supplement the two drills which  are already at work in the mine. This  machinery was shipped from this city  to Bossburg to-day and will leave the  latter place on Saturday. We intend  to hurry this machinery as fast as possible to the mine aud hope to have it  in running order in ten days after it  [  arrives.  "With this plant the work can be  expedited. The shaft is now down to  a depth of 300 feet. We crosscut and  drifted on the 100-foot level and then  pushed on down to the 300-foot level,  Where the work of crosscutting and  drifting is now in progress. We will  use this machinery to crosscut and  drift on the 100-foot level, the 200-foot  level and the 300-foot level, and place  them in condition to take lots of ore  from them. When this work is done  the shaft will be pushed on down to the  400-foot level. There are two veins on  the property, that have been crosscut.  One of these is 17-feet in width, and  the other is from 6 to 7 feet wide. The  ore from the.l7rfoot ledge is the richest,  and a trial shipment of ore from this  lead gave returns of $74 to the ton.  While our ore bodies are not as large  as those to be found-in. the famous Old  Ironsides, still the values are greater.  I believe we will be able to pa}' dividends sooii after we begin to ship.  The company is out of debt and has  sufficient money in the treasury to run  it for some time to come, and hence  there will be no use for the money derived from the mine except to pay  dividends uwith itL A few thousand  tons of $70 rock runs into money pretty  fast, and I believe we have a; large  tonnage of this sort of ore in the Winnipeg," concluded Mr. Mcintosh.���  Rossland Miner.      ���  A   TOWN   HELD   UP.  Toronto Globe : A petition has recently been filed with 'the minister of  railways, narrating a set of facts that  call for particular attention. Moyie  City is a' community situated on the  line of the Crow's Nest'railway. It  was a townsite and settlement before  the railway was begun. It owes its  existence to the fact that three shipping mines are within a mile of it. A  steamboat also plies on the lake,bringing the town into contact with all  points along the shore. At the time  the petition was drafted there were in  the'place five hotels, three stores, a  church, school, newspaper, sawmill,  brewery, customs office, real estate  office, besides other businesses such as  baker, butcher, blacksmith, laundry,  feed stable, cigar store, billiard saloon,  barber shop, and, in addition, about a  dozen private residences. This constitutes the nucleus of a considerable  place in a new country, and it is stated  in fact, that Moyie will offer the railway more business than all the other  towns put together between Coal creek  and Nelson for twelve months or more  to come.  The very purpose of building the  railway, of course, was to afford such  places the indispensable boon of railway facilities. Now, what do we find?.  In January, 1898, the Canadian Pacific  railway agent arrived in the place and  demanded of Mr. Campbell, the owner  of the site, 250 feet width of right of  way through the townsite, and also  half of all the unsold lots, as the price  for putting a station in Moyie. Mr.  Campbell was unwilling to give this,  but offered ten acres 'of land immediately adjoining that already surveyed, free right of way and station  grounds, concessions which are valued  at $20,000. It is absolutely of no im-  importance in the case, however, what  VICTORIA, B.C.  LONDON, ENG.  VANCOUVER, B.C.  ;   TURNER, BEETON   &���;:��� GO.

This is a particularly gross example  of a species- of- coercion that has been  too much practised in the past. If the  facts are correctly stated in the petition, there is no good reason why a  station and siding, aud every other  reasonable facility should not be afforded Moyie, and we feel sure that,  Mr. Blair will use every, power that the  law puts in his hands to compel the  railway company to do its duty and  frustrate this high-handed attempt on  the part of a powerful corporation to  "hold up" a community.

J. J."MILLER.  Greenwood, May 1, 1899, 3-5 THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  THE STEMWINDER  And Brooklyn, Two Properties  Being   Developed   by  Eastern   Syndicate,  an  Large Ore Bodies Being Opened  Up by Shafts, Crosscuts and  Drifts-The Buildings  A well, authenticated rumor comes  from Toronto to the effect that Mackenzie, Mann & Co. are perfecting- arrangements for the flotation t'f a big-  company to operate the Greenwood  camp properties held by them. The  capitalization will be several million  dollars. The flotation is sure to be  successful. The easterners are so.  anxious to secure mining- investments  that the names of those, associated  with the ownership, of the Brooklyn,  Stemwirider and the other properties  in the group would bring success to a  flotation such as suggested even if the  mines were veritable,"-wild-cats," but  with properties like the Brooklyn and  and Stemwinder behind some of the  strongest business and financial men  of the east, it is safe to say that the  stock will be oversubscribed several  times. The firm of .Mackenzie, Mann  & Co., who are developing the properties, comprises some of the strongest  eastern financial men. Wm. Mackenzie and Dan Mann require no introduction. They 'have .figured so  prominently in the Canadian history.,  of the last few j-ears that they are  generally known. The "Co." include  Hon. Senator Cox, .the president of the:  Canadian Bank of Commerce, Byron  13. Walker, the general manager of the  same institution, and several other  prominent eastern capitalists.  A Times representative, hearing the  rumor about the flotation, visited the  properties with a view to ascertaining  the amount of work done since Messrs.  Farrell&Midgeori parted with some  of the biggest and best mining interests they- ever controlled. Phoenix  was soon reached, and it was discovered that the employment of oyer  one hundred men in the immediate  vicinity had its direct influence on the  village, or town, or city, or whatever  title best suits Phoenix. The place  has grown, until it' is now something  more than a postofrice. Dwelling houses  have been-built, a large hotel for Harry  Nash is under course of erection, and  a tonsorial artist has decorated a tree  with the stripes to show that he is  ready for business. Fred Graaf's hotel  is still there but the barroom has disappeared, and Mrs. McCormack now  gives excellent meals to hungry miners  and still hungrier visitors.  It is well worth visiting Phcenix, if  for no other reason 'than to listen to  the inimitable stories and bon mots of  Frank Robbins, the resident engineer  for Mackenzie, Mann & Co., and Mr.  Williams, their business manager.  Mr. Robbins has had a long experience indifferent mining camps in the  United. States. His graphic descriptions tof incidents which have come  under his observation are well worth  going miles to hear.  The most cursory observation of the'  workings at the Brooklyn and Stein-  winder forces one .to the conclusion  that after all Mr. Robbins' success is  due to his ability as a mining man.  The buildings, the plants and the  working shafts all bear testimony to  the direction of a master mind. The  Brooklyn is a crown-gran ted property,  located under the old niining1 act, aud  is consequently 600 by 1500 feet. The  ledge, or more properly speaking the  lode, runs north and south aud is 100  feet in width. The limestone wall is  easily discernable on the surface, and  the lode can be traced the entire distance to the opposite wall. A-double-  compartment shaft, 9 by 4l/i feet inside the timbers has been sunk to a  depth of 250 feet. This shaft is at an  angle of 70 degrees. There are. two  levels, one at 50 feet and the other at  150 feet. The greater development work  has been done at the latter level. The  ledge has been crosscut the entire distance of 150 feet. There is also a 75-  foot drift on the ore body. It is the  intention to crosscut and drift at 250  feet. This work is to be started in a  few days. The company have an  assay office on the ground which is  kept busy turning out values ftom  samples. What the values are has not  been made public, but it is safe to say  that the Brooklyn ore runs high in  copper and also contains good gold  gold values. There are about 500 tons  of shipping ore on the dump.  A 30 x 60 shaft-house, 36 feet high,  built of lumber and roofed with corrugated iron, shelters two 30-horsepower  boilers and hoist. There is also a  No. 5 plunger pump, but there has yet  been no .necessity for its use. The  plant has sufficient capacity to sink  the shaft to the 500-foot level.  A well-bnilt wagon road leads from  the Brooklyn to the Stemwinder. Here  is a shaft similar to that on theBrook-  lyri. It is 9 x 4>< feet in the clear,with,  an inclination of 70 degrees. Eight,  inch square timbers and two-inch  planking form the sides. The shaft-  house is 80 feet in length and 50 feet  in height. This building is intended  for the big .compressor plant; which  will be installed as soon as the rail-,  way is completed, and which will furnish power to the two mines. In the  meantime^ a 30-horseppwer boiler, a  hoist and pump comprises the plant.  Tlie width of the Stemwinder ledge  has not been determined, but it is  known to be several hundred feet. The  dump contains several hundred tons  of ore. It runs as high as 20 per cetit  copper, will average lOper cent, copper  and also carries substantial gold values  The shaft is down 175 feet. The ledge  has been crosscut at 115 feet and a  drift run. The shaft will be continued  and different levels established.  The adjoining properties, the Montezuma,- Golden Eagle and Standard,  will probably be worked from the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder.  THE   C. & W. ROAD.  Interview With W. F. Tye. Chief Engineer of  Construction.  W. F. Tye, chief engineer of con-  'struction of the Columbia and Western  railway, now the Canadian Pacific,  was in the city yesterday and stated  that 90 per cent, of the grading from  Brooklyn west was completed. All the  grading, he said, was finished to Grand  Forks, and the station at that point  will be between Grand Forks and the  new city of Columbia, probably a few  yards nearer the latter than the former,  bnt while probably about 25 yards  nearer, would certainly not be more  than 50 yards nearer Columbia than  Grand Forks. As a matter of tact,  there was not he said, more than 100  yards from the boundary of one municipality to the boundary of the other,  and the railroad ran between. The  station would be called Grand Forks.  From Grand Forks to Greenwood  was about 25 miles, but the .grading  had been completed to Eholt summit,  80 miles from Brooklyn, and the line  was ready for the rails. From Eholt  summit to Greenwood swis only eight  and a half miles and the work was  light, as the road was practically level.  From Greenwood on through the pass  was, however, different.  Tracklaying was now completed for'  22 miles west of Robson, and was being  pushed as rapidly as possible, so as to  make it worth while to run trains  regularly. The rails being laid down,  he said, were 73 pounds per yard, and-  were practically as heavy as on the  main line, there being only about two  or three pounds difference in the weight  This line through the Boundary  Creek country would eventually be  built to join the main line at Hope  station (at present the most hopeless  station on earth), but which is the  station for one of the prettiest little  towns in British Columbia, but that is  across the river, aud most of the business goes down from the town by  steamer to New Westminster.  Mr. Tye was asked whether or not  the main line would come through by  the Crow's Nest pass and thence by  Robson through the Boundary Creek  country. He said he was unable at  present' to say. The grades from  Medicihe Hat by the Crow's Nest road  to Robson are much lighter than by  the present mam line to Revelstoke,  but on the other hand the grades from  Revelstoke to the coast are much ���  lighter, and it yet remains to be seen  which will be the best route for the  main line. Of course it is a question  of economy, and if the new line proves  cheaper to run than the old one, that  will be the course of the main line,  though freight and passengers between this and the west and between  the extreme east and west may come  through Robson eventually and the  Southern Kootenays rather than the  main line.���Rossland Miner.  PASSES   FOR   MEMBERS.  An Ottawa correspondent writes:  "A brief but interesting discussion  took place in the House of commons  on Thursday afternoon upon a bill introduced by Mr. Bostock, which proposed to make it compulsory upon all  railways to issue free passes over their  systems to members of parliament.  The question is. one that was made a  prominent feature in the Patron platform a few years ago, and there is  little doubt that that organization  voiced a widely prevailing idea in the  country that the free passes granted  by the railways to members  of  parlia  ment were not given entirely on account of the affection the railways  felt for the members, but in anticipatory acknowledgment of favors that  were hoped for in time to come. Whatever may have been the original motive  which led to the custom, there is post-'  tively no evidence that'members are  unduly influenced to favor the railways, at the s.ame time the contention  of the supporters of this measure, that  the representatives of the people should  be above even the appearance of suspicion, has secured support, officially,  from neither side of the house, both  leaders opposing the proposition ; the  principal objection to it being that  parliament has no right to compel any  railway company to surrender the use  their property, or to render public service gratuitously as contemplated in  'the bill."

The deceased and Thos. Edwards were  engaged in  an  upraise from the 250-;  foot level, when they came in contact  with the bottom; of a. winze from the  tunnel.   There was 45 feet of water iri -  the   winze.      It   broke - through    and  hurled the  men back' into the level,  carrying Spargo. 200 feet, 45 feet in the  south drift and'80 feet  past, the;work-,  ing.  shaft.      Spargo    was    instantly-  killed.     His   head, was . crushed   but  there were few. bodily "���injuries.. Ed-,  ���wards   grabbed - some timbers in  the  upraise and escaped, but was seriously  hurt.   The most serious injury is that  he is . temporarily,-blind.from^ the. ef- .  fects of the.awful.weight of .water.;    ;,  To better "understand; the nature of  ' the accident, it is.( necessary to state','  that the tunnel od the Jewel attains a  depth of 150 feet"-Frbm tH'is depth" a  winze was sunk a distance of .50 feet.  An upraise was started from the 250-  foot level to connect with this winze.  The upraise was run. until it was  thought to be near the' bottom of the  winze. A:;surveyor wasv engaged, in-,  the work ������ of determining the exact  position when the, accident occurred.  Edwards' escape from instant death .  was simply-miraculous. It is thought  he escaped the full'force of the water  or he would not.haye,beeri;:;able to retain his hold on the timbers.

F.'.'Clough were .among, the.  visitors to the city during the week.  Messrs.] Greene and.Piggott are. interested in the Midway Towrisite Company. They came from Montreal' via  the Coast.;, Mr. Piggott is anxious to  prove that Mr. Greene.is.a hoodoo, and  that he fears greatly the gallant captain will.fall down a shaft before leav-  i -       ...  ing the.district. \ To prove his assertion he points to the fact that the captain recently returned from the Old  Country on the "Germanic." He left  the steamer, and shortly afterwards  she sank in the dock. Coming across  the continent they missed a serious  bridge accident only a few hours. They  were on the "Kingston" when she  was cut in two by trie " G-lenogle," and  escaped only with their liyes  and  paj-  ammas. After many tribulations they  reached Spokane. A friend induced  Capt. Greene to, visit the Cceur d'Alene  and immediately upon 'his arrival the  union miners blew up: the Bunker Hill  mill. These fatalities do not disturb  Capt. Greene's equanimity. In company with the other gentlemen he  visited the,Mother Lode, B.C., and  other properties in the district. Mr.  Piggott isa brother-in-law of. Mr. J. F.  K Heinenway of the Old Ironsides, with  ���; whom theyspent sometime. He is an  old railway engineer, and was through  Boundary Creek'when, as he puts it,  "the Old' Ironsides was as big a wildcat as any of them." .  The visitors will spend some time at  Midway before returning East. -They  .corroborate the statement that Montreal capital is, anxiously seeking for  legitimate mining- investments in the  Boundary Creek country, arid it is  quite probable that before returning"'  they may get hold -of something good  :to' place on the -Montreal- market.

A large number of  cases came up for consideration, but  none were of much importance. The  next sitting of the Court will probably  be held at Greenwood.  James McGregor, the provincial mining inspector, arrived in the city on  Tuesday, and left for the Jewel mine  to make an investigation into the cause  of the recent accident there. Mr. McGregor will visit some of the mines in  the district before returning to Koot-  enay.  Duncan Mcintosh, the president of  the Winnipeg Company, has returned  from Rossland. Before leaving Boss-  burg he saw the big plant for, the mine  loaded and hauled up the Bossburg  hill. He does not anticipate any difficulty in getting the plant to the mine  as the roads are in a fairly good condition.  Geo. C. Hodge, the superintendent of  the Vernon & Nelson Telephone Company, lett yesterday for Grand Forks  to install a local system at that point.  Before leaving he closed a contract for  placing 'phones at the sawmills and at  Reudell's store, Eholt. The work of  erecting the poles for this branch line  has already commenced.  The Government has announced that  the Eight-hour Law will be enforced  after June 12 next. The law applies  to all metalliferous mines. The law  was asked for by men working in the  mines, and they demanded its enforcement. There is considerable opposition against the enforcement of the  law by mine-owners, but it is not  thought that serious difficulties will  arise.   Lost.���A souvenir Steamer Beaver  cufflink.
