Bielenberg is one of the most  successful mining men in the Boundary Creek country. It matters not  whether the success is due to good  luck or judicious perseverance. From  the daj that he sold the Anaconda  group until the present success has> attended his mining efforts. Last winter "the count" sold the Buckhorn to  a strong eastern company. The proceeds of this sale would have satisfied  a modest man, but Mr. Bielenberg kept  several properties adjoining the Buckhorn and proceeded at once to develop  them. This work has demonstrated  that the great zone of rich copper ore  in the Buckhorn extends into the adjoining properties owned by Mr.  Bielenberg. The Iron Top, an adjoining property, has been developed by a  series of open cuts and shafts. From  one of these shafts which is down '40  feet, a drift was run at the 20-foot  level. This exposed a large body of  rich chalcopyrite and bormte. Mr.  Bielenberg brought down some samples  to the city. ,They are magnificent  specimens and carry more bornite than  has yet been seen in any Deadwood  camp ore. The open cuts on the Iron  Top demonstrate an ore zone 600 feet  wide, all heavily mineralized. This has  been traced on the Iron Top for fully  1,000 feet. The values received are exceptionally high. Twenty-five per cent  copper is quite'common. There are  also good gold values. Mi. Bielenberg  alsoi owns, other .properties, adjoining  the Buckhorn. These he is de\ eloping  with a force of twelve men, ind all  show similar big bodies of high grade  copper ore.  crusher of the Sherteoant pattern to be  driven by a gasolene engine gnes  facilities tor handling large samples of  ore.

Hanna foreman attheMonaieh  was down from "camp this week. He  brought with him some splendid specimens of high grade copper ore from  the property. The ledge is over 400  feet wide. Men are now engaged  in erecting buildings and a large force  of men will be employed during the  winter. The Monarch is owned by R.  E. Brown and his associates. ���  SECOND DREYFUS TRIAL.    i  Thos. Bradshaw of Greenwood is  congiatulating himself upon 'living  grubstaked Billy Purpose to p. aspect  in the Similkameen country Last  spring Bradshaw sent Purpose out on  the usual terms. He succeeJ.el in,  locating a promising location on 20-  mile creek near the famous Nickle  Plate. A small amount of development  work uncovered a big body of rich  copper ore. Marcus Dalj 's lepresent-  atives who are operating- m the district experted the propeity>and at once^  opened negotiations for its purchase.  They have already offered 3100,000, ten  per cent being down. The deal has  not yet been closed.  Messrs. Guess Bros, the pioneer as-  sayers of the district, have moved into  their brick block, the basement of  which is 25x50 feet, entirely given up  to their business.

The French of Central Camp Have Troubles In  Court.  , The denizens of Greenwood are so  unaccustomed to anything approaching the theatrical, that the unheralded  performance in the court house Thursday afternoon did not attract as great  an audience as the merits of the play  deserved. It was a repitition of the  Dreyfus case on a small scale. There  were plenty of excitable Frenchmen, a  secret dossier, Col. Jouanest, in the  person of Police Magistrate Hallett,  and all the other officers and witnesses  necessary to complete a typical Dreyfus trial.  ���The big powerful Clive Pringle made  a splendid Maitre Labori. Andrew  Leamy was Maitre Demange and J. P.  McLeod was a keen and vigorous  prosecutor for the government. The  Gires and Vasher completed the company.  The performance was based on an  incident whichntook place some~three  years ago. Miss Gire. her nephews  Messrs. Gire andv^ Clements Vasher,  dwelt together in "peace and amity in  Central camp where they were engaged in the work of developing properties in their own behalf and jfpr  friends in France. Then business  quarrels arose and Clement Vasher left  the home in Central camp. A registered letter addressed to Vasher was  delivered at Boundary Falls by John  T. Bell to George Sweetland. Sweet-  land delivered the letter to Miss Gire  and Vasher never received it. Miss  Gire was charged with ' stealing the  letter;- hence the suit.'    '    '  John T. Bell was the first witness.  He' told about delivering the letter to  Sweetland. Sweetland followed with  the story of having delivered the mail  to Miss Gire. He also said that the  Gires, aunt and nephews, went to an  inner room and there called Vasher a  "sacre cochon," (which created a great  sensation, a la newspaper), and" winch  being translated  means "d n pig."  Then Mr. McLeod called Andrew Gire,  but he proved a hostile witness. He  believed that the honor of the Gire  house must "be maintained and acknowledged that if he had made a certain statement he must have told a lie.  Then Clei.ient Vasher came. He got  along very well until Maitre Labori  turned loose Labori, in a voice that  shook the iron bars that sometimes  keep prisoners in and sometimes don't,  questioned poor Vasher. Vasher  vehemently maintained that he had  prayed to God for justice, not vengeance, but Labori wanted to know if  it was the piopei thing to have Mrs.  Johnston, a blushing bride of si<  weeks, arrested (Miss Gne was married to Johnston a few weeks Jgo).  This so excited Vasher that he went  into explanations so rapidly tli.it Labori, whose knowledge of Fienoh is  limited, was forced to retire and leave  the witness in charge of Demange, who  learnt French on the Ottawa mail)  years ago. After Demange had finished  the witness gave an exhibition of the  Fiench way of giving evidence. He ad-  diessed the court, explaining his position and opinions  Co' Jouanest couldn't commit for  trial There was not sullicient evidence  to convut the accused w ith the purloining  oi   the  letter.    He   dismissed   the  charge and the  second  trial ended.  great  Drejtus  W. W.

The Dominion Consolidated Mines  company has been incorporated with a  capital of $500,000 in 25 cent sha?res.  The company own properties near Dog.  Lake, Okanagan Falls, A six-drill  compressor has been purchased. T. H.  Trethewav, C. E., who experted the  properties, says:  "The vein oh these properties is well  defined, and where exposed by the  workings near the line between the  Western Hill and Virginia, averages  fully 18 feet in width. The gauge consists of a somewhat crushed and iron-  stained quartz, sparingly mineralized  with galena, copper and iron pyrites,  with here and there small amount of  blend and . graphite disseminated  throughout.  "On the Western Hill, a shaft has  been sunk to a depth of 27 feet on the  footwall, and the ledge has been ex-1  posed by a crosscut to its full width; it  here appears to be diyided into hanging and footwall portions by a seam of  somewhat. decomposed, clay material  which appears to dip towards the hanging wall, cutting out the leaner and allowing the richer portions of the vein  to increase with depth.  '/Samples taken in-this shaft, across  an 8-foot face lying next to the footwall, gave an average return of $7 in  gold and SI.35 in'silver, making a total  of S8.35 per tori, while the balance of  the vein gave a return of?$2ingold  and 70 cents in silver, making a total  of $2.70 per ton for a width of 10 feet,  so that $5.25 may be considered a fair  average for the full width of the vein.  ��� "The conclusion ' I have drawn after  a thorough examination arid study? of  the- facts' as here presented is, that:  judicious development should locate extensive bodies of pay ore,.'as even if  only the 8-foot, next to the footwall be  extracted, the values continuing?'in  depth,, as there is no reason why they  should not, while leaner portions may  be encountered, they could be' left in  the mine to support the walls,: and you  would' still' have a proposition!6f unlimited tonnage well worthy' of  judicious expenditure in exposing its  resources.  "The general conditions;'elevation,  etc., are so favorable that mining  operations can be .carried on" for many  years by simply tunnelling into the  mountain and following the trend :bf  the vein, and hundreds of thousands of  tons of ore can readily be made available without the. use of hoisting or;  pumping machinery.  "Situated.as these claims are about  2,000 feet above the bank of the Okanagan river, with a natural outlet for  an aerial or other tramway, arid only  about three miles from the Black  Hawk claim, which is within easy easy  reach of the river, the1 question df  transportation of ore from the mine to  the mill could be easily arranged.  "With an electric power plant established at Dog Falls, which is possibly  ten miles distant, ample power could  be generated at a nominal cost for all  purposes, and by adopting the most  modern, methods of mining, milling  and concentrating, together with an  unlimited supply of ore, the cost of production should be reduced to' a minimum. . i  "If the present promising assurances  are  borne out,  the opening:upof ������ the  three: levels   should   develop at least  a three years' supply of ore for a plant  of large, capacity, and I would strongly  recommend the erection  and installation of a mill not less  than from 250 to  300 tons daily capacity.  -   "With   cheap   power  and unlimited  supply of ore and   a plant capable of  handling the quantity I have suggested  the  cost of niining and milling ought  not to exceed from $1.50.tb'$2 per ton,  and   under   capable    management    it  should be kept within the lower limits.  "Thus even if the lowest values,$3.05  be taken as a basis calculation  and allowing that 85 per cent of this can   be  saved,  it  would  yield a profit of $1.09  for each ton of ore treated, but I am of  the opinion   that  much higher values  may  be   confidently  expected   and  if  there is a profit winner in the camp,all  conditions considered, this one can   be  conscientiously   recommended   to   the  federal affairs, and arranged the political tours of.the Liberal leader in Ontario and the west. He was elected  chairman of the standing committee of  railways, canals and telegraph lines  in the house of commons, August, 1896.  He is major of the 22nd Oxford Rifles,  and was one of the 13 whovoted in the  house of commons in favor of Colonel  O'Brien's resolution, respecting the  Jesuits Estates' Act, 1889. Major  Sutherland defeated D. Y7. Karn, the  Conservative candidate, in the last  election (1896) by 1,801 votes.]  Freight Troubles Ended.  Last week the Miner called attention  to a serious difficulty that had arisen  in the bringing of shipments here over  the C. P. R. in bond for Republic. The  trouble has been, arranged and there  appears to be no further obstacle in  the.way of such shipments. If such  shipments could not have been inade  the Mountain Lion company at Republic would have been very injuriously  affected. As soon as Jonathon Bourne,  of Portland, president of the company,  was made acquainted with the danger  of having all his  mill  shipments held  up he made a very vigorous protest to  Washington by telegraph, stating that  the big Mountain Lion mill for which  250 tons of machinery had been ordered  could not build at all this fall unless  the machinery could be shipped over  the C. P. R. to Grand Forks and that  great injury would be done Republic  in general if the regulation already announced was adhered to. The result  was an immediate order from Washington ; to place an American customs  officer at the Grand Forks station of  the C. P. R., whose duty it should be  to break the seals of; cars arriving in  bond. ";Mr. Plummer, a United States  customs officer, arrived last Sunday  and has been at the station to perform  the duty referred to. Several-cars in  bond for Republic have already arrived  one being loaded with Mountain Lion  machinery. All's well that ends well.  ���Grand Forks Miner.  NEXT  Greenwood, B. c.

BUSINESS HOUSES ARE DESTROYED  One Man Burned to Death���Severar Hotels  Were Destroyed-The Loss is $ 2 5,000  and Insurance Small.  Cascade had its baptism of fire last  week? The Record gives the following  particulars: \     ������  "It was 12:30 this morning when) the,  dreaded cry of  fire resounded through  our streets and the fire alarm triangle  began to be,rung.    Fire was first (discovered by Mrs.   Mahoney, who had  a  room   in the Britanna  hotel.    Asi she  lookedout of her window theone-story  shacks between the Britannia and Club  hotel'was all ablaze, from'what source  is hot khowii. 'Quicker than lightning  -  the flames leaped up. and  were soon  licking up both  hotels and spreading  '' westward, fanned bj a northwest wind.  "In quick succession, the Grand Central hotel, Railroad Headquarters hotel,  Scandia hotel,  Francis  & Milne j and  the Hotel Montana were eaten  up by  '  thefiery   demon and reduced to ashes.  Six hotels and one cigar store were de-  '���,,' strbye'd-in an'hour's time, and nothing  remains today  but a heap of smoldering embers, .marking ��� what was 'once  the busiest part of the Gateway City.  ?.,'������ "When the fire first broke out it was  evident that the block, if not the entire  city,-'was?doomed, but, it was hard to  realize  it.    Everyone of the buildings  had sleeping occupants, some of'whom  f escaped with but scanty attire. ��� When  fit ?was realized ithat everything ,- in  the  path of..the fire demon must go, aifran-  tic effort was made to save  goods, furniture, personal effects, etc., but little,  however, was rescued from the flames.  "Then  a futile', effort was made, to  save the last building on the block, the  Montana, by' blowing up the Scandia  with   dynamite.   A box  of SO .pounds  was touched off with 50-foot fuse.;  The  building rose with  a deafening roar  and   then   collapsed,   and  the'flames  rushed oh as though  nothing had happened, engulfing the Montana and the  log building in the rear. ,  "Alex Arvoll,who had been employed  by C. J. Eckstromvwas one pf the  hardest workers, of the several hundred willing ones endeavoring to rescue  , property. He was imprisoned on the  sidewalk in front of the Scandia 1\v  falling walls,.and before he could possibly be rescued, the sea of flames  swept over him, carrying him to eternity in a most horrible manner.  "Several times efforts were made to  drag him out, but human endurance ���  could not possibly stand that intense  heat. He could be heard piteous calling for help, yet it was not possible to  get him out in time.  "When the dynamite was placed in  the Scandia, loud warnings were-given  in every direction to give the building  a wide berth. Arvoll saw a drunken  man run back into the doomed building and he rushed after him to get him  out. The man was saved, but at the  cost of his brave rescurer's life. It was  a heroic action, and his name will live  long in the memory .of those who witnessed it,  "The losses by the fire foot up to between $20,000 and $25,000. The insurance all told is $4,450, written by Geo.  K. Stocker in the Western, of Toronto,  and the Phoenix Assurance, of London. An estimate of the losses and insurance; in detail, is follows:  C. H.

Smith, of the Toronto  World, who has been visiting some of  the big prospects of this country, has  this to say aTaotit the Golden Eagle on  the North Fork:  "The Golden Eagle proposition has  been stocked as the Royal Victoria  Mining company, with a capitalization  of a million dollars, the chief people  behind the concern being P. P. Sharp  and I/. S. Moulton-Barrett, of Greenwood. The deyelopnient work is under  'the direction of Superintendent J. H.  Fox. Several outcrops of ore have  been opened up by test pits, and a  shaft has. been sunk upon what appears to be the same ledge as that  which is found on the Phil' Sheridan.  This shaft was started on a contact of  iporphyry and diorite and 30 feet down'  it got into ore. At the 70-foot level a  40-foot drift was driven on the contact,  which appeared to run nearly east and  west. About. 20 feet in on this drift a  prospecting crosscut was run into what  appeared to be.a very extensive body  of hig grade ore. From the end of the  drift a 30-foot winze was sunk, and  from the bottom of this winze a drift  is now being run on'the ore body which  seems to have swung around and to  now run in a northerly and southerly  direction. There seems to be a direct  twist in the formation at this point.  In this lower drift a good ore body is  found in place. The ledge is some 14  feet wide and appears to be growing  wider as the drift is pushed in. From  present indications it would seem that  the pre body extends from the upper  drift to this drift, and if this proves to  be the case the company has unearthed  a very, large deposit. The ore is largely  quartz, carrying copper and iron  pyrites and gold. It is disintegrated  by oxidization near the surface, and  the values are said to run very high.  Some- samples of ore give from 15 to  20 per cent in copper and the rest of  the values are in gold. The unearthing of this big body of high grade ore  has created quite a sensation in the  district, and the Golden Eagle is looked  upon as a prospect that has a bright  future."  Mr. Sutherland's Views.  Mr. Hugh Sutherland, managing director of the Dominion Copper Company, whose property is located at  Phoenix, is in the City for a few days.  In conversation with a Miner representative last night, Mr. Sutherland  said:  "The company's new compressor at  the mines is now running smoothly.  We are running four drills. We do  not intend to put in any more machinery, not for some time at least, We  will not put up a concentrator or mill.  We have been developing the Brooklyn and Stemwinder properties for two  years, and will continue development  work for at least another year. We  could, if-necessary, mine 500 tons of  ore per day at this present time, but  our intention is to let the ore stand  and keep tunnelling away at [development. The policy of our company toward our employees will always be  based upon fairness and equity. We  have already given orders for the  erection of a number of cottages for  the married men in our employ and  will  build forty more if   needed,  so  that any self-respecting man of a fam  ily,���in our employ can have a real  comfortable home and a permanent  one. ., The cottages will have five  rooms and will be finished in a superior manner. We also take care . of  other matters beside homes. We will  erect school buildings and pp-n schools,  so that the children of our employees  will be enabled to lay the foundation  for an education."  In speaking of the progress of the  Boundary country, Mr. Sutherland said  it was remarkable. "Why, if I had hot  known where I was going when I arrived at Phoenix, I would have been  lost. It bore no resemblance to the  place I left last January. It has built  up surprisingly. The townsite company have sold every lot, they had.  Greenwood has improved wonderfully;  so, also, has Grand Forks. The Yale  Hotel at Grand Forks is the -finest  hotel in the Kootenay country. It is a  credit to British Columbia."  When asked about the difficulties  arising from the eight-hour law. Mr.  Sutherland was reticent in.;, a degree,  biit said he did not think there would  be any considerable improvement  among the mines until a change jin the  right direction,had been effected. He  said :.     '_'''������  "We are employing our miners at  the rate of $3.50 per day of eight hours  for machine men, and $3.00 'per day of  eight hours to hammersmen.. This is  dry work. In wet work the wages are  50 cents extra. In shaft work our hammersmen are getting '$3.50 per day of  eight hours. This has been the pre  vailing wages in these mines for 18  months befor the present company was  formed, and the same in the Evening  Star, and Slocan City. I have always  paid $3.50 to machine men for 8 hours  work in vrei ground. For instance, in  the Evening Star, at Slocan City, I  have paid for the past 18 months $3.50  to hammersmen and $4 to machine men  for sinking in eight- hour shifts. In  dry work I have paid in proportion for  10 hour shifts."���Nelson Miner. '������"  NOTICE.

IIakhek. .....Manager.  SATURDAY,  OCTOBER 7, 1899.  THE WATER QUESTION.  "There is trouble ahead in'connectioi:  with the granting' of records for water  to   be   taken   from   Boundary   creek.  Water Commissioner Lambly last week  came  over  from  Fairview to hear  objections  ag-ainst   granting  records  to  certain   applicants.    The, most important case was that of the British Columbia  Copper  company,  limited,   which  applied for 1,200 inches of water.    The  Midway company, limited, opposed the  granting  of   this record fearing pollution   and a diminished supply,  were it  granted.    The   latter, company   holds  one record for 1,000 inches granted  in  1885 and another for a like quantity in  1891.    These records are for water < for  irrigation and domestic purposes and  the water is being freely   used   at Midway for, these purposes. '���"'��� Iu good faith  the Midway company has  during 1897-  8 spent  between  S9,000 and 310,000 on  an -irrigation system, and good results.  Now interested special pleaders  say in  effect-''the  mining industry is of. most  importance   so   notwithstanding   that  rights   of   long-   standing  exist,, they,  should give way, so that we and others  may profit   thereby.'    It was admitted  by representatives of the company that  already records have been  granted by  the government for five  or six times  the quantity of-water coming down the  creek when 'not ;in flood���-that- the minimum flow is less than  SOO  inches, yet  this company makes a modest application for 1,200 inches, further admitting  that  it  is  not likely  to use any thing-  like that quantity.    The  position   will  appear to be should the granting of, additional records continue, that the outlay-made by  earliest holders  will be  rendered of no avail or it will  only   be  possible to take advantage of it  at an  unreasonable    expense    in   obtaining  legal assistance every time a new. application is made for a record.    After  records for all the available water have  been granted no more should be issued  for  itonly   means that if records  are  i given in excess of the available water  - the holders  must fight the matter but  among-  themselves,   until  the  longest  - purse, not justice, shall prevail."  The   above   is from the Midway correspondent   of'. the? Vancouver News-  Advertiser.    It is  is entirely, opposed  to the views of the News-Advertiser on  :  the     question     of    water   rights.    If  memory do?s   not play   us  false, the  News-Advertiser1 was one of  the first  papers in the province to take  up  the  cudgels in defence of  the  interests  of  the user against those who were endeavoring to  control the water of the  province  for speculative  purposes.    A  government which adopted the suggestion offered by the Midway correspondent would be dismissed at the earliest op  portuuity.   An unprogressive company  with a vindictive representative, armed  with   a record  granted  when   records  were granted   indiscriminately,   could  stop important industries.    If the correspondent's   suggestion were adopted  no water could be used from Boundary  creek above Boundary  Falls,   because  the   Midway   company  holds   two   records    aggregating    2,000    inches    of  water.    Such  records do ' not g-ive the  Midway company a'monopoly of Boundary  creek.    It   merely   gives  a prior  right  to the   use of water if required.  It is not at all likely  that  much water  will be required at Midway if the Town- j  site company endeavor to obstruct im-j  portant industries  by raising   absurd'  objections   in   reference   to  the use of!  water.    Every  smelter established on j  Boundary creek, every  iudustry estab- j  lishcd in   the   district for   the purpose i  of developing   its   mineral   resources.  will  benefit  Midway.    The  people  of j ������  Midway have nothing to fear from the   efo  erection    of     smelters    on    Boundary  creek.    What   they   need  to  fear is a  policy   that  sacrifices  the interests of  the   town   that spleen  and  prejudice  may be gratified.  treatment   has been   accorded  by  the  ���tVM^f?   Canadian  Pacific    Railway    company  from generous or .patriotic motives.   It  I is rather a cold  blooded  business  pro-  ' position.    For j'ears the  railway com-  j pany   had   its   mining  experts  in the  1 district.    They investigated   and upon  . their reports the  company.,, determined  to give such facilities as would ' enable  all mine  owners  to  ship  their, ore, at  same time give the C. P,. R. a practical  monopoly of the carrying trade   in the  Boundary, creek district.  The C.P.R. Co. were in possession  of all the facts when they determined  to build the Boundary Creek railway  and its branches. The action of the  company is an eloquent tribute to the  mineral wealth of the district.  THE FREIGHT BLOCKADE.  ,, The circular letter from F. W. Peters  to the Greenwood merchants is  a  perfect gem.     It entitles  Mr.   Peters  to  promotion in the service  of the  company   he   serves   so   faithfully.      Mr.  Peters'  life for the past' three weeks  would not be worth  living if he were  anything but a C. P. R. official-. Greenwood  merchants   have    almost  ruined  themselves and enriched > the Vernon &  Nelson Telephone company   in  wiring  that gentleman;    they  exhausted  the  supply of William  Mulock's  new  two  cent stamps in writing him; they  even  took a ride on the new railway and personally interviewed him. They coaxed,  pleaded, threatened,cajoled.    They all  wanted goods forwarded from Robson.  We foolishly  shed tears of sympathy  for, Mr.   Peters.     These .-.' tears   were  wasted.    He turns up the  same,  smiling impertubable   Peter and urges the  merchants to  take their goods  awaiy  from GrandForks that he may be able  to secure storeroom for  the goods at  Robson I    The; 30 odd  cars  of Greenwood freight at Robson will be  moved  just as soon as the  Greenwood  merchants take'away  the goods  which  has  already reached Grand Forks.    So you  see the C. P. R. is in no way   to blame.  The fault   lies   with   the   Greenwood  merchants. ,  IN   A   DISPLAY   OF  ; ���WILL BE EXHIBITED AT  THE     WHITE     PRONT  ���' Next door to the Postoffice,       ,    ;  STORE  To-day,  SATURDAY,  and following days.  auk of Montreal  Capital, all paid up,  Rest.... ..:......  $12,000,000.  $6,000,000.  , President: ., .

Cameron gives notice that he  will introduce by-laws authorizing additional loans amounting to $15,000.  The completion of the municipal buildings will require $5,000 and $10,000 is  to be expended on streets. Most ratepayers will agree that the money is  necessary in order to complete the  work contemplated by the council.  They will be equally unanimous in the  opinion that the council should take  them into their confidence and tell  them how and where the money is to  be spent. The present slip-shod  method of expending money on streets  should be abandoned. Let the council  instruct their engineer to prepare a  statement giving the streets to be improved, approximate amount required for each street. . Let this  schedule be adhered to and there,is a  possibility that the ratepayers would  get a reasonable amount of improvements for their money.' Up to the present $55,000 has been borrowed and  practically expended. The work accomplished could be done for $20,000.  e  Government St,  Next Door to Postoffice  Store,  Greenwood, B. C.

If there be any   speculation -in  connection  with   the  development   of the  mineral resources of  Boundary   Creek  district,  the greatest plunger of them j  all   is  the  Canadian   Pacific  Railway!  company.    No other district in Canada j  has  received   as  much attention from '  the big railway corporation.     In other  mining  sections  the company  grudgingly  built   main   lines  and  then   allowed  the   mine  owners  to  build   the  spurs  or  tramways  in order that they  might be in a position to ship their ore.  Here    the   company   has   voluntarily  built   branch    lines   that   tap  all  the  camps   and     afford    direct    shipping-  facilities to nearly all the" mines.

MORRIS   IS   UNDER  ARREST  For an Offence Said to Have Been Committed  in New York Fifteen Years Ago. He Will  Fight Extradition.  Charles A. Hinckley alias Chas, S.  Morris has been arrested, charged  with misappropriating- $97,000 of the  funds, of,.the.. West Side' Bank, New  York, 15 years ag-o. The arrest was  made at Princeton last week by a New  York detective.        ?     ;  Chas. S. Morris was vice-president  and manager of the Columbia Town-  site company for a short time. He  was a man of considerable means and  took a prominent part in' the affairs of  Columbia. Morris was taken to Ross-  ., land where he intends fighting extradition on the grounds that the alleged  crime was| committed previous to the  enactment of the present extradition  law and that at the time the offence  was said to have been committed the  extradition arrangements between the  two countries did not include 'the  offence charged.      "'���������������������  The incidents leading up to. the arrest are thus.detailed in the Rossland  Miner?:'' ;  ,'!'--'-'.'.'���' .  Hinckley, when the west, side  bank  started  in  New York city, in the year  1868, was made the paying teller,. and  he held-that position till May 14, 1884.  During    that period  Hinckley was  a  model bank officer,  and was  held in  high esteem by the , president  and the  directorate;  for he was ���' noted for the  strictness of his business methods. On  '   May IS, 1884, Hinckley transacted the  business of  his office with his usual  care and promptness',   but   the   next  morning- he was not at his desk.     The  cash  of  the. bank was counted, and it  was  found  to be just   $97,000   short.  Then it was realized by. the management that Hinckley  had  betrayed the  confidence reposed in   him,  and   had  stolen the funds of , the bank and decamped with them.    The bank marked  the amount to profit and loss,  and has  since   prospered. *  This' is  shown  by  the fact that it now  has $400,000 in its  reserve fund.' 'Every effort was  made  to locate the missing teller. Detectives  yrere   employed,' rewards offered,  but  had the ground opened and  swallowed  him hecoiild not have more completely  disappeared;    Theofficials of the bank  learned a short time since  that Hink-  ley was located in Columbia.   That he  was the vice-president of the townsite;  company     there,     and      accordingly  Messrs.  Theodore M.Bertiue, cashier  of the West Side bank ;  Frederick A.  Camp,  attorney  for the   same   bank,  and Amazi L. Camp, came to  this city  from New York,  for the  purpose   of  causing the apprehension of Hinckley.  They have worked very quietly  knowing  that   their  quarry   was  shy,   and  might  take  the alarm . arid flee if he  was.about to be apprehended.     A  few  days since Amzi L. Camp, who  knows  Hinckley  well,. accompanied   the   arresting officer to the Boundary Creek  country, and there it was learned that  tlie man sought for was in the vicinity  of Princeton.     The twain  hurried to  the point.    There Hinckley was located, and he was at once recognized  by  Mr.   Camp  and  placed    under  arrest.  Yesterday Hinckley  had been brought  as far east as Midway, and  he  will be  in Rossland by'Monday evening.  $10,000 additional for streets, and $5,-  000 additional for municipal building.  J. F. Junkin, general manager of the  Manufacturers' Life association, asked  for further time to considerthe application to sell additional debentures.

The Golden Crown property consists  of one whole claim of 52 acres,  which  the company has crown granted.    The  property  lies  only   about eight  miles  from    Greenwood   on   the  main stage  line, and at the time of my visit to-day  ���    the railway constructors were just  finishing- the grading-  of  the Welling-to.i  camp spur of the Columbia  and  Western   line,   which  runs  right up to the  Brandon and Golden Crown   ore dump,  within   150  feet  of  the  collar   of  the  main shaft.    The railway people  g-ive  assurances that their tracks will all be  laid  in  November,  and if these promises are carried out. the management  of the mine   may   beg-in  shipping; ore  about   sixty   days   from   the   present  date.  The Brandon , and Golden Crown  Company's property is equipped with  a 100 h.p. boiler, a 30 h.p. steam hoist,  a 5-drill air compressor, a large station  'pump and a No. 7 Knowles sinking  pump, to contend with the water, of  which the mine makes a good deal.  The ore is at present brought from below by means of buckets, but these are  now being replaced by a cage. The  company has good shaft and engine  houses, bunk and dining cabins ?equal  to; the accommodations of fifty men,'  powder house and blacksmith shop, all  substantial log and frame buildings.  The chief geological feature of Wellington  Camp is found in a series of  contacts of diorite and gabro.     The  trend of these formations is as a rule  northwest and southeast, ah d; the ore  bodies generally lie at  the contacts referred  to.       This holds good on the  Brandon and Golden   Crown  property  as well  as on  other  locations in the  camp.    The ore found in  these junctures may  be   properly   described   as  pyrrhotite.   and    copper   pyrite   in   a  silicious gangue.     Up to date no less  than eight paralle leads have been dis-  r covered upon the property.    These,  of  course',* all run with the formation   and  they  all lie within  a distance of 800  feet, varying in-width  on  the surface  from 18 inches to 12 feet.  Considerable, deyelppment work, ha��  been done on the Golden  Crown,  both  by Mr.  W. J.   Porter,    the   original  owner, and since the formation  of; the  company" by   its' managing  director;  Mr. .H... G.  Collins,  but a great   deal  .more will have to be done before the  management   can' ascertain    the   extent of its deposits.    Mr.  Collins has  devoted the most of his attention to the  most westerly vein, upon which he has  sunk the main  shaft.     The lead, like  most of - the company's other deposits,  is covered, by a heavy "wash" of sand  and gravel,  but the clearing of this  away  reveals  a vein  from 4 to 8 feet  wide on the surface.     By test pitting  and crosscutting this  lode was traced  for a distance of 700 feet.     The main  double compartment shaft which the  company is sinking to open up this de-  posite, is down 325 feet with  crosscut-  tings and drifts at several levels.     As  this working is vertical the dip  of  the  vein carried it out of the shaft at a  depth of 30 feet.    At the 50-foot level a  crosscut was run to catch the vein, and  as the dip of the ore body is only about  25 degrees from vertical,  the deposit  was encountered within a distance of  eight, feet. At the 100-foot level a  crosscut of 18 feet in length was required to catch the ore. At the ,150-  fpot level 32 feet of work had to be done  to intersect it,and if the lode has maintained its dip a crosscut between 60  and 70 feet in length will be -required  to reach it at the 300-foot level.  -To go back a step, a drift along the  vein from the crosscut at the 50-foot  level opened,up a body of ore about  five feet in width. A drift from the  crosscut of the 100-foot level was run  for 66 feet in a body of ore from four to  six feet wide, and the drifts from the  cross-cuts at the 150-foot level have  been run for 66 feet through ��� an ore  body from four to six feet in width.  From this 150-toot level a good-sized  upraise has been made to the 100-foot  level. The upraise discloses , a fine  body of ore from 8 to 12 feet wide.lying  between the two levels. From this 150  foot level a winze has also been sunk  for 32 feet, all in ore.  It will be seen that the developmen t  work thus  accomplished   proves   the  contindance of the ore from-the surface  down through the 50-foot, 100-foot, and  150-foot levels, and 32 feet below the  last named level.    Manager Collins expects, to catch his ore  body again in  the cross-cut, which he is now driving  at the 300-foot level.      At the points  where   I   examined   the   ledge   below  ground,     it    is     compassed   by    re-1  markably    regular   walls,   the   gabro  forming the hanging wall;   and  the  diorite the foot wall.   These ear marks  indicate continued depth,  and,  therefore   the management is justified in  expecting to double the depth of their  proven  ore body  by this   last-named  cross-cut,  if it strikes ore, sinking in  the main shaft will be  continued with  the object of getting ore at still lower  levels.  The main shaft will also be used to  prospect the seven small parallel ledges  which have been unearthed on the property. ' These leads have been exposed near the surface by a tunnel  322 feet in length, and Mr. Collins will  attempt to open them up by driving a  tunnel from  the 300-foot level of the  GRAND -  LJAALmmLm.-':':'"^ ������'    "'  .^Imperial Hotel  main working. This tunnel will be  driven 800 feet, in order to cross-cut  the seven small ledges spoken of. As  the outcrops of these veins occur on an  elevation 100 feet or so above the collar  of the main shaft, this tunnel will give  a .vertical depth upon them all of between 400 and 500 feet. The small  parallel ledgas bore referred to, be  sides being-prospected by the 322 foot  tunnel spoken of, have been opened up  on the.surf ace by means of test pits  and cross-cuts. 'They, vary in width  from a few inches to six feet and over,  and assay tests show' them to carry  good gold and copper values.'  As to the ore values in the ' deposit  opened by the 300-foot shaft, its crosscuts and drifts, it may be said that  they run among the highest in the  usually low grade Boundary country.  This ore, which resembles War Eagle  and Le Roi ore in appearance, gave  assay returns of from $13 to up in the  hundreds per ton, and Mr. Collins informs me that all the ore will average  $25 per ton. The values are chiefly  gold, but the ore carries from 1 to 2 per  cent, in copper.   '  The C. P, R. has offered to carry the  company's ores to the Trail smelter  and treat them at a moderate figure,  and the management calculates that it  can have its ore mined, shipped and  smelted at . a total cost of -not more  than $9 or $10. On this basis the  Brandon and Golden'Crown ore should  yield a net profit of $15 per ton.  As already indicated,,,the compainy  expects'to begin shipping ore within  two months from to-day. There is  some ore on'the dump already,'and the  management;will ih'a" few days begin  to raise.the,bodies which it has' blocked out above the 150-level. The ore  can be brought iip the shaft, run along  a short tramway, and loaded right into  the C. P. R. cars as they stand on' the  railway spur, which runs up to the  door of the company's shaft house.  General Manager Collins has at present in his employ a force of 18 men,  under r.the direction of A. Iv. Lynch,  acting as foreman. I am told that as  soon as the property begins shipping  ore the number of men will be increased to 30. ' Frank D. L. Smith.  In the Toronto World.

Generally speaking, the ore deposits  on .the  Winnipeg   occur like those  of  other  Wellington   camp   locations,   in  contacts   of diorite   and  garbo.    The  formation,     roughly    speaking',   runs  north and south, and dips to the  west,  and the garbo near the ore is generally  altered into a serpentine.rock.      So far  as  .'development' has   gone  on  on the  Winnipeg.; it   shows   that   the  ore  is  found in.irregular  chutes,   varying in  width   from  a  few'inches to 17 or  18  feet,    and    sometimes    even     wider.  Near the surface the formation is much  broken   up,   and a tremendous amount  of   prospecting   work   is   required'  to  ascertain the position and trend of the  ore bodies.    At the bottom of the present   workings,   at  the 300-foot   level,  .however,   the  formation   is  becoming-  more solid, and the management hopes  soon  to  find  its   mineralized deposits  in more well defined shape.    Already  however,   some   extensive   ore  bodies  have been opened, up.       r   , .���.. .  The development work so far accomplished by the Winnipeg company consists of two shafts, one down about 50  feet, with crosscuts and drifts, and the  other down about 335 feet, with cross-'  cuts:and drifts at the 50, 100 and 300-  foot levels. In all over 1,600 feet of  sinking and horizontal work has  been  ���done..   .'.:....������  '.'.'..!.?...,,;, ,:.,..:.' ._..'.  Perhaps   the   easiest   way   to   give  readers an idea-of the detail of the underground work  will be to ; review  a  trip  made -through'" the mineinjeorri:  pany with Mr. Mcintosh.  We   first   inspected    a   prospecting  shaft, which for. convenience sake,may  be called No. .1.' ,;This wassunk.oh; the  outcrop of pyrrhotite;  which led Mr.  Mcintosh to first stake out the claim.  The-working,   which 'goes down1 on'an  incline, remains in  solid ore to the 30-  foot level.' ' "At this level a drift is run  for 60 feet, in  an. easterly direction!,  This drift, for the entire distance, runs  through- a body, of pre, from 8 to 12 feet  wide, and here the chute seems to come  to an endin.that direction.?.  A  lot of  ore on the dump  came from this working,  and-there ;:is considerable ore  in  place here  yet in a gangue of serpentine.      .,.... ..]..   ,,...    ..,.,,.-���.. ....,,...  Returning to theishaftj.'.we; descended  another 20 feet to the 50-f66t level.  The ore chut&continues;. at this .depth,  and a drift driven a westerly direction  continues more or less in ore for a distance of of-70, feet, at "which.. point the  working breaks into?another large ore  body.: -This depositshas been crosscut  and drifted upon for ' about 40 feet.  This crosscut arid'drift,' together with  a with?a,winze.30 feet deep,-proves-the  existence of a considerable .deposit in  this part of the mine.

This main working of the property is run -down vertically for 100 feet, at which point the  management changed; its direction to  the incline in order to follow soft strata  in the formation in which a small  stringer; of ore appeared.   :  At this 100-foot ;leyel 500 ieet of drifting and crosscutting has been 'done to  tap : what, is apparently the same ore  chute as that which appeared in the  prospecting -shaft before described.  The - ore body is. here irregular and  much broken up, being five feet across  at the widest part. :  From the 100-foot level we descended  to the 300-fobt level, where Mr. Mcintosh has driven a crosscut.in a easterly  direction through altered gabro. At a  distance of 100 feet from the shaft an  ore chute varying in width from one  foot to seven feet was tapped. This  deposit has been drifted upon for 233  feet, and the company has ore throughout practically the whole of this working.  !     At  the 300-foot  level Mr. Mcintosh  has also driven west for  110  feet, and  i at this point he has crosscut a chute of  , ore  about  four feet wide.    Upon.this  body he is now drifting.  While it is the company's intention  to continue drifting and crosscutting  upon several loades to prove the ore  bodies already tapped, the manage-  meent will also continue sinking for at  least another 200 feet.  On the Winnipeg claim the company  has unearthed two or three other outcrops. A? prospecting shaft sunk on  one of these to a depth of 45 feet unearthed considerable ore, but work upon this deposit is not being pushed.  Generally speaking, the ore upon  the Winnipeg property may be described as pyrrhotite, carrying gold  and copper. It is partly high-grade  and partly low-grade, running from S4  or S5 up to $75, and sometimes higher,  per ton. Assay test's give even much  higher values than the latter figure  mentioned. A test shipment of about  five tons of ore was some time ago sent  ^mmmmmmmni'mmmfe!

The Associated Press sends out misleading telegrams from Rossland, a  fair sample of which appeared in the  Tribune yesterday. A telegram, dated  at Rossland, gives accounts of strikes  recently made, in a number of the  mines, leaving the reader to infer that  the mines were situate at Rossland;  when as a matter of fact the mines are  situate near Greenwood, in Boundary  district. Rossland has -no need of  such bolstering; the mines in its immediate neighborhood are amongst the  richest in British Columbia, and the  town can stand on theirmerits.. ..Other  towns are fairly entitled to any prominence that can be given mines in their  immediate neighborhood as much so as  in Rossland.���Nelson Tribune.  =S- GREENWOOD,  B.
