After a short address of welcome he  called on Mr; Bostopk. Mr, Bostock!s  address was confined to local issues.  He said that after the railway he rdid  not see any reason why Greenwood  should not be made a customs output,  and he would take the matter up with  the department. The mail service  would be improved as' soon- as; the rail--;  way, was in regular running order. _  With reference to the railway, Mr.  Bostock stated that the rates were  under government' control and if any  discriminatory rates were charged the  Board of Trade should report the matter to the'railway-.'department.

Yale-Cariboo had a  population of over.19,000 scattered over  a large area. Victoria got two members, Yale-Cariboo one. Here was an  inequality that could and should be  wiped out without waiting for the  census. While we were prevented from  using the argument, it was nevertheless true that inequality was'now more  glaring. Victoria's population had not .  grown while Yale-Cariboo had now  a population of 75.000.

A Wellington Camp Group of Claims���Winnipeg  Sinking on New Strike���Large Specimens  From the Golden Crown���Banner. Nearing  ���    the Ledge���Snowshoe Drifting in Ore.  Jack Farrell is working: on "tlie Buttercup, a claim lying* north of the  Athelstan,' in Wellington camp. This  is considered one of the most promising properties in the camp. There is a  50-foot shaft on the claim and a number of open cuts. In all about "$2,000  has been expended in development.  Very. rich copper-g-old ore has been  taken from the shaft. The Buttercup  is one of a group of claims, situate  about a mile from the Winnipeg,  which include,, the Athelston, Mollie  Pritchard, Jack Pot, Iron Clad, Butte  and Edith L. .The Athelston has a 95-  foot incline shaft, a 60-foot shaft, and  a drift of 50 feet from the bottom of the  shaft. The Mollie.Pritchard has a 25-  foot shaft and two assessments done  on surf ace work. The Jack Pot has a  45-foot shaft and an open cut 12x6x4  feet. The Butte has a 50-foot shaft.  The Iron . Clad has a 12rfoot shaft and  several open cuts, one of which is 30  feet in length. The Edith L. had two  assessments done on it, consisting of a  shaft 10sfeet deepl-and surface crosscuts. Average ; assays ; in the group  run from, $18^tof;^. \ Between this  group and; the ^Winnipeg ' and Golden  Grown are the Calumet and'Hecla.  The Golden Crown, Wellington camp,  is being-developed from the 300 and  150-foot levels. Good ore is being taken  out at 300-foot. Ori the dump are  two large blocks of ore taken from the  shaft, one about 3,000 and the other 2,��  000 pounds weight. It was intended to  send one of these to the Spokane, fair,  but when the freighter, ^backed up to.  the dump and found he could not, lift  either lumps of ore,, he concluded:, not  to handle such, unwieldly exhibits.  The blocks are very fine specimens of  ore, and it is to be regretted that th��y  were not among* the Boundary exhibits  at Spokane.  , E. A- Bielenberg,-brought down a  nice specimen of ore from the Burns  claim in Deadwood camp on Saturday  last. The specimen contained :native  copper, peacock copper and ,7 copper  pyrites.. The Burns adjoins -the Buck-  horn and is the property of the Arlington-Burns Gold and Copper company,  recently floated by Mr.' Bielenberg*.  The specimen was taken from the  shaft at a depth of eight feet. The  ledge on the Burns has been proved to  be nearly 20 feet in width, and Mr:  Bielenberg places it among the great  claims of Deadwood camp.  Thos. Walsh, of Greenwood, has had  a force of men at work . for the past  three month's on his claims in Greenwood, camp, lying east of the Snowshoe  and Pheasant. The claims are the  Lucy, Emerald, Virginius, Colorado,  Cliff and Frisco. On the Emerald their  is a shaft 34 feet in depth/and on the  Frisco a 25-foot shaft. The Cliff has  been developed by an 18-foot tunnel,  and on the Lucy two tunnels.have been  run, one 15 and the other 12 feet. The  claims are all snowing- up : well. The  ore is quartz, carrying copper pyrites.  . Assessment work has just been completed on the Missing Link, a claim  lying between the. War Eagle and  Monarch, in Greenwood camp, about  one mile south of .Phoenix. The work  done on the claim consists of about 300  feet of surface crosscuts. The, property  is showing up- well, and from its  position, near the big ledges of the  camp, shotiId be one of the shippers.  G. W. Rumberger and W. J. Porter are  the owners.  J. M. Taylor is working on the  Pibroch in Wellington camp. The  claim adjoins the Wellington on the  north. . He has just completed assessment work on the California, another  Wellington camp property. The work  done on the California consists of a  160-foot tunnel, which has been run in  ledge matter nearly the whole distance.  The ore is copper-gold and gives good  assays.  There are now 210 miners working  on the properties in Greenwood camp,  besides carpenters, street graders, etc.,  making the tota 1 nnmber of men employed, in the camp about ,400; a pay_  roll of 81,300 per day in the <��� camp.  This force will be doubled before the  end of the year. And Greenwood is  only one of the six great camps of the  Boundary district.  Assessment work  has been done on  the   Bullion   for  this year.    The work  done  is a 40-foot shaft.    The Bullion  lies north of the New York and Brook-  Continued on Page 7.

Extensive Preparations Which  Are  Being  Made to  Develop  the Claims   Under   the   Management   of   Mr,  Henry Johns���A Big Plant,  A visit Xo the Sunset; the principal  property of the Montreal Boundary  Creek Mining company,.limited, cannot but impress* one with the magnitude and. importance of the intended  operations of the country. The excavation for, large buildings to house a  big plant; the erection of residences  and offices, and the many; signs of activity shown���all impress one with the  confidence the company have in the  success of their big undertaking.  ;    .-  On Saturday last the writer was'the  guest of Mr. W. L. Hogg, who took a  party to visit the mines. / Mr. Hogg  has beenv connected with the Sunset  for several years. He spent; a large  amount of money; in developing the  property and/always had- the greatest  confidence in;it. Included in the party  were Mr. Edward Woodhead, a wealthy  business man of Liverpool,''England,  Mr. F. J. .Finucane, manager of the  Bank of Montreal, and Mr. John  Hamill, of Armstrong, B. C. Under  the guidance of, Mr. Henry Johns, the  manager, the party visited the workings, saw the big ledges ;and. were interested in the extensive preparations  that are being- made to install the big  plant! Mr. Hogg is-very greatly  pleased at the changes in the Sunset  since the tmie he bonded the property  three years ago.       ,��� .'    7*'  It- is a different looking]'Sunset: to  that of two years and a half ago. The  writer'then visited' the'property and  . there was nothing to be seen,excepting  a tunnel which was being' ritn into the  mountain., A short time previous to  this Mr. W. L. Hogg, manager of the  Inyestment. company of Montreal,  bonded the .Sunset add Crown Silver.  Development work was vigorously  prosecuted under the superintendence  of J. H. Macfarlane. The CO. D.  and'Florence fraction were also purchased by Mr. Hogg. A few months  ago Mr. Hogg floated the Montreal  Boundary Creek Mining company,  limited, to acquire and still further develop the properties mentioned. The  flotation was one of the most successful in the history .of the,mining operations in Montreal���a city which always  looked with favor upon Boundary Creek  properties7  Mr. Hogg succeeded in interesting  some of the strongest financial men of  the east, as the personnel of the company will show. Hon. Senator Ogoilve,  is at the head of* the company, and  with him on the directorate are Hon.  Senator Turner, Quebec, Mr. T. W.  Horn, a wealthy . manufacturer of -Toronto, Mr. W. Barclay Stephens, manager of the Western Loan and Trust  company, Mr. W. L. Hogg, manager  of the Investment company, and Mr.  James G. Ross, of the firm of P. S.  Ross & Sons, the well kfiown auditors,  The capitalization is 162,000,000. The  treasury stock has. been so extensively,  purchased that the company have  ample funds: for the purchase of the  big plant which is now en route and  for the vigorous development of the  property.  LOCATION.  The properties owned by the company occupy a unique position, so far  as cheap, economical'Shipping of ore is  concerned. They are situated in Dead-  wood camp, about two miles from the  city of Greenwood. The Deadwood  camp branch of the Canadian Pacific  railway passes within 30 feet of the  working shaft on the Sunset. There  is a down hill grade to the smelter,  which is being built within a mile of  the company's properties.  DEVELOPMENT WORK.  The tunnel on the Sunset is 480 feet  in length. There are four crosscuts  from the tunnel, aggregating 175 feet  of work. Ninety feet from the mouth  of the tunnel is a winze 60 feet deep.  The working shaft strikes the tunnel  at a depth of 100 feet and continues  another 85 feet. At this level (185 feet)  there are 300 feet of drifts and crosscuts. The first shaft has been enlarged  to a double compartment working  shaft, 4^x5 feet in the clear. It is  lined  from the collar with 12x12 tim  bers-' to a depth of 25 feet, and then  by 10x10 timbers. The whole work on  the property, including the shaft,  totals 1,350 feet. ;  LEDGES.-- 7  ���  The ledges are genuine Deadwood  camp ledges, over 100 feet wide and  traceable for long distances, with  chutes' of good values.' The dip is  about 65 degrees. .The visitor to the  mine has no difficulty in locating the  vein.; The railway graders cut through  the' bright: magnetic7 iron * arid it has  been again uncovered in the excavations for the shaft house. The railway  follows the big ledge for a distance of  300 feet. It-;is at least 75 feet wide,  where exposed/at the shaft-house, and  it has been/traced to the Crown Silver,  an adjoining property.  Generally speaking, the ore is magnetic iron, carrying gold and copper  and yielding average values of $25.  There are chutes of calcite carrying  chalopyrite which return much higher  values. The ore will receive a glad  welcome at any smelter. It is practically a self-fluxing ore..  The development work so far has not  been directed towards blocking out the  ore bodies, but rather to place the mine  in a position to engage in this work on  a large scale. It would be difficult to  surmise, the vanity, of ore that can be  taken out of a drift along one of ��� the  big ledges... From surf ace indications,  the ledge on the' Primrose^ that has  been cut by the railroad, is a continuation of the ledge running through'the  Sunset, and Crown Silver. In addition  to this there is another parallel vein to  the west, fully 150 feet wide. It has  not been openedupto any great extent,  but has been exposed by-surface work  for 200 feet. The values are similar to  those on the first ledge mentioned.  BUILDINGS.  The Montreal-Boundary Creek company were fortunate in securing the  services of Mr. Henry Johns. His long  aud successful connection with' other  big mining properties ensures careful  and . competent management. Mr.  Johns is at present engaged in ��� the  work of. preparing for the big plant  that ''has been purchased by the company. The shaft house which is being  erected will be a substantial frame  building, 30x30, and 55 feet in height.  Inside is the gallows, frame, 45 feet  high, built of timbers, 14x16, and of  sufficient strength to haul two double-  deck cages from a depth of 1^500 feet.  The hoist-house is 50x30 and 35 feet  high. There is a wing 50 feet in length  and 36 feet wide. Here will tie installed  the electric dynamo, engine and compressor. There are also a carpenter  shop, 16x12;'a blacksmith shop, 16x12;  offices, bath rooms, bunk houses, board-  house, etc. The manager's residence,  which is gearing completion, is a  model of neatness and comfort. It occupies a delightful position on a slope  convenient to the mine. Indeed, no  better site could be imagined than that  occupied by all the buildings. It is in  this respect a. happy contrast to that  on many oth.er mining properties where  there is nothing to relieve the monotony  of barren rocks.  THE PLANT.  The plant for the mine was purchased from the James Cooper Manufacturing company, of Montreal, and  is now on seven C. P. R. cars oh its  way to the mine. The plant is the  largest. yet purchased to develop a  Boundary Creek property. It comprises a 20-drill compressor and a 25-  horse power hoist with a Ledgewood  friction drum and an inch steel cable.  There are two 80-horse power boilers  and all the necessary appliances that  go with a mining plant. This plant  will be installed and in running order  by the first of the year.  WATER.  Water for the plant and residences'  will be secured from Deadwood creek,  a mountain stream that empties into  Copper creek. A pumping station has  already been erected on the stream  and a large resvoir will be built on the  500,000 Shares Placed in Treasury.  Capital, $2,100,000, in $1.00 Shares.      -.;X  PROPERTY:  The Sunset Claim, Similkameen District  DIRECTORS.  R. A. BROWN, Esq., Grand Forks, B. C, President.

The railway  passes within 30 feet of the shaft and  50 feet below the shaft platform. This  gives just the proper space for sorting  ore, ore bins and the cheap dumping of  ore into cars.  FUTURE DEVELOPMENT.  When Mr. Johns gets his plant working he intends to attack the big ledges  on the properties. The shaft will be  enlarged to the 200-foot level. From  here a drift will be run along'.the ore to  the Crown Silver, a distance of over  1,200 feet. From this drift a large  quantity of shipping ore will be taken.  Work will be continued in other directions so that within a resonable length  of time the Montreal-Boundary Creek  company's properties can be classed  among the shippers.  Mining, in many respects, is a speculative  business,   but the Sunset group  bear all the earm irks of making a big  mine.

Promising properties are often targets for a certain class of mining men,  commonly known as knockers. These  gentlemen do not make violent pretensions to respectability and are seldom  accused of being honest. , They are to  be found in nearly every mining camp  and while they are tolerated their conduct disg-usts all legitimate mining  men. The Sunset in the Simlikameen  district, has sufficient merit to attract  the attention of a gentleman who is a  veritable Beau Brummel among the  knockers. The Hon. C.H. Mackintosh,  ex-lieutenanant-governor of the Northwest territories, ex-M. P., the founder  of the B. A. C, the Cecil Rhodes of  British Columbia, turns aside from  ��� legitimate mining for the purpose of  damaging a property in the Similkameen district. ��� Mr. Mackintosh enjoys  the advantages that success brings.  He trades upon his position in the mining world in order that he may the  more effectively carry out his purposes.  His plan of campaign is as contemptible as it is brilliant. The work of his  fine Italian hand can * be seen in the  Toronto. Globe. An innocent looking  paragraph in the mining column, of  that eminently respectable paper is not  as innocent as it appears. It shows  how mean a disappointed great man  can become.   The paragraph follows:  "Mr.   C.' H.  Mackintosh writes :   A  telegram   dated   from   Grand   Forks,  Sept.   30,   and   published   in   various  newspapers,  refers to  'a hitch in the  negotiations' with reference to the purchase by  me of  a property known as  the Sunset,   in  the Similkameen district of British Columbia.   A further  intimation is   made^ that the owners  have  decided   to  stock the property.  The very  fact that we decided not to  stock the property   accounts   for   the  ���hitch in the negotiations.'   The final  report on the Sunset and surrounding  claims was made by Mr. W. J. Collins,  an eminent mining engineer, and Mr.  D.   J.   Macdonald,   formerly  superintendent of the Columbia and Kootenay  mine,   both   g-entlemen   having . been  connected  with   the British  America  Corporation.    Our people have determined to place no property on the market unless developed, and  the  two experts in question  decided  that  there  was not sufficient ore in sight to justify  flotation, holding that it would require  two years to make a proper investigation, and that the surrounding circumstances did   not   warrant asking the  public to invest. As my name has been  connected with the property I deem  it  only   fair to  make: this  explanation.  Our   firm has  already expended considerable amount of money, but sacrificed it rather than ask   investors  to  sacrifice theirs."  The honest, straightforward Mr.  Mackintosh apparently evinces a very  laudable desire to protect investors  from, sacrificing their money in the  Sunset. But what are the facts? Mr.  Mackintosh agreed to pay $40,000 for a  15-32 interest in the' Sunset. He held  the option for 12 months without spending a cent on the property. After D.  J. Macdonald, to whom he refers, examined the property, Mr. Mackintosh  deposited $40,000 with the Bank of  Montreal, Rossland, in payment for  the , interest in accordance with the  agreement, and Mr. Brown, the owner,  was notified to put in the title deeds  and he would get the money. Afterwards he withdrew the amount because  the conveyance from the owner had  not been left in the bank. Brown  could have forced Mr. Mackintosh to  pay the money, but he eagerly jumped  at the opportunity to secure a return  of his interest in the Sunset,  In his note to the Toronto Globe, Mr.  Mackintosh cleverly leaves the impres-  sion that his firm had expended a considerable amount of money on the Sunset. The truth is, that neither he nor  his firm spent anything on the Sunset.  Mr. Mackintosh did drop a thousand in  interfering with another man's negotiations for adjoining properties.  If Mr. Mackintosh were as ingenuous as he is ingenious in the art of  knocking, he would tell an anxious  public that his conduct has been  prompted by chagrin; that his experts  reports on the Sunset are favorable  and that he has still as good an opinion  as he ever had regarding the merits of  the property. He would say that he  was playing a deep game���that he  wanted to secure all the interests in  the Sunset and surrounding properties,   and   that   he   is   bitterly  doing business. This accounts for the  extraordinary conduct of Mr. Mackintosh. Even distinguished mining men  have their moments of weakness. Mr.  Mackintosh will have to change his  tactics before he can retain and command the respect of mining men,  which is so necessary in carrying on a  successful mining business.  Mr. Mackintosh's conduct in regard  to the Sunset is so unusual that we  took the trouble to malce minute inquiries regarding the Sunset. Statements made by mining' men who spent  the summer in. the Similkameen confirm everything in Dr. Deeks'report  which appears in another column. In  fact D. J. Macdonald, Mr. Mackintosh's  own expert, spoke most favorably regarding the property upon his return  from the Similkameen.  Mr. Mackintosh's professions on  public occasion, are out of touch with  his actions in reference to his Similkameen negotiations. At the banquet in  Rossland, tendered to htm, he is reported to have given expression to the  following' sentiment: "Mr. Mayor,  reference is made to my generous nature and admirable "traits of character.  I answer, if to love my fellow-man, if  to refrain from injuring his feelings,  if to endeavor to do unto others as I  \vould have-others do unto me���if these  be symbolic, of a generous nature, I  can without vanity accept, the compliment."  ��5  4>  *'  4��  FIRST SHIPMENT OF  Clothing:  Hats and  Caps,  Neckwear,  4*  ���+������/������������  ���+ FOR FALL   * JUST ARRIVED.  *  *  W.M.

Secretarr  Voters' List  In city municipalities the list of  voters shall be closed on the first Monday in December or in about six weeks.  The advantages of having- every qualified resident registered are many.  There are many householders having  the necessary qualification who will  fail to register unless an' organized  effort is made. A British subject owning real estate in the city and who hits  paid his or her taxes or a British subject who is a householder and has resided in the city for 12 months is qualified to vote. Householders must make  a declaration, and it is here where tlu  danger lies. Unless their attention is  personally called to the matter, many  householders will neglect to make the  necessary declaration.  In this connection the city council  ought to interest themselves in the  matter of a large voters', list for provincial and federal elections. The  political power of a city or district  often and very properly depends on its  voting strength. If the number of unregistered electors are neglected, the  political interests of the district cannot receive that attention their importance warrants.  The city council should make suitable provision to have all municipal  voters registered; at the same time  those having charge of the registration  could attend to the provincial and  federal lists,  Head Office and Works at  BEI.IvEVIT.LB, Ont.

SUNSET MINERAL CLAIM.  and   the  Erief Description of the, Property  Great Promise it Has^  The Sunset mineral claim on Copper  mountain, Similkameen distric, has attracted, notwithstanding its long distance from transportation, a great deal  of interest during the past two or three  years, and has been under option  several times during that period, always at a big sum, and each time at a  larger figure. Its fame during last  year brought many prospectors into its  vicinity, and swarms of them this year,  and the whole country for miles around  has been staked. Its isolation from a  railway line will soon be a thing of the  past, as the C. P. R. has, during the  ' summer, had a.big corps of engineers  in the country between Midway and  Hope station on the main line, determining and surveying out the most  feasible route for-their short line across  ' the province, and it is said that the results are very satisfactory, and Engineer Dennis stated that the C.P.R.  will build the line in 1900 and the line  must go within ten miles of Copper  mountain, and a spur line will of course  be built to it.   \ <  The report of Dr. Deeks on the Sunset; is stated by all who know the pro-  pert to be a most conservative one. One  gentleman who had an option on the,  Sunset at one time, and who spent a  great deal of 0 time in prospecting it,  declares that, wherever he found rock  cropping through the soil and broke  into it he invariably got a showing of  copper. He sent a 60-pound sample of  the better class of ore to the Orient  Chemical works at Trenton, New  Jersey, and the assay returns were 57  =per--cent copper and $8.20 in gold. The  analyst stated that the ore could be  most cheaply treated by electrolysis at  a cost of $1,60 to $2 per ton. The ore  is one also that will smelt at. a very  cheap rate.  The dump at the SO-foot shaft was  sampled this year  by   a  mining engineer, and gave an average of seven per  cent,  and this   notwithstanding   that  several tons of the choicest   ore had  been previously culled out for sampling  purposes, and by visitors and  prospectors.      When   the latter  were shy of  good   specimens   on    their    neighbor  locations, this dump  could  always be  drawn upon.    The values in the shaft  sunk have shown a steady increase in  evalue as depth  was   gained,   and by  culling   out   the   cleaner   ore,   which  woald not exceed one-third, an  averge  of IS per cent copper can be got.   Taking Dr. Deek's dimensions of vein���100  feet at one end and 750 feet at the other  end of   claim���will give  an   average  width of 425 feet.with 1,500 feet length,  Taking the 50 feet depth attained will  give 31,875,000 cubic  feet,   and taking  12 cubic  feet  to  the ton, will give 2,-  756,250 tons.    Discarding two-thirds of  this as waste, will leave nearly 900,000  tons,  which should average 6 per cent  to 8 per cent copper  (Dr.  Deeks' estimate) besides  gold  and  silver values  and would have large profits, for such  ore would  have  a gross value of $15 to  $20   while    with   reasonable   railway  facilities, the cost  of  mining,  freight  and treatment should not exceed $6 or  $7.     There   is   abundance    of   water  power and excellent smelter sites \vith-  Mineral Act, 1896.
