Rich Strike in Aspen Grove Camp.  Mr. Frank Bailey returned from the  Similkameen district last Saturday  and in an interview with a Times representative he said:  Considerable work is going on in  Camp Hedley where the Yale Mining'  Company, are operating- on a larg-e  scale their extensive holdings. Their  principle property is the Nickel Plate  mine which I was fortunate enough to  examine last Sunday. This mine has  some 3000 feet of underground workings in tunnels, drifts and stopes,  showing several rich veins of various  thickness and different grades, which  are being held as a reserve. The present workings are in a large glory hole  opened up on the surface close to the  original prospect workings made by  the discoverers of the property Messrs.  Arundel and Wollaston who bonded the  same to M. K. Rogers the purchasing  a ..fen*-. fc'r���tho.v-AiKalgariiatad Copper  company of New York, in the summer  of 1.898. The sum paid was $60,000 for  three claims namely, Nickle Plate,  Bulldog, and Sunnyside. Two machine drills break all the ground necessary in this glory hole to keep 40  stamps in the Daly Reduction company's mills dropping steadily. From  the glory hole the ore drops through  stopes and chutes into the ore cars on  the 150 foot level where the electric  motor takes the tram load of about 20  cars holding six tons each out of the  1000 foot tunnel and down the electric  road for a distance of about four miles  where they are dumped at No. 1 station  in an ore bin capable of holding 1000  tons.  "This~"statioti^"'is "situated "about 2000  feet above the mill in a direct line  where a gravity tram takes the skip  down to a station at the mill, thence  through chutes to the big Farrel  crusher and thence to a sampling  Farrel crusher. The ore is then carried by belt conveys which distributes  it evenly along a large bin capable of  holding 2000 tons.  This ore from the glory hole is a  quarlzite carrying arsenical iron pyrites (mispickel) which averages from  S60 to ��100 in gold. Splendid specimens are often met with where the  gold is plainly visible. It was rumored that a trial shipment to the mill of  a 2+ hour run cleaned up S10.000 in  gold, and at that rate it will not take  this company long to regain the two  million dollars they have aln.-adv expended in this camp.  The Yale Gold Mining Company now  have sixteen full claims and some  fractions in this camp, the latest property they acquired being the Climax,  which they purchased in July last from  Messrs. Yates and Cahill for 510,000.  Henry Yates sold a half interest first  for $2,500 and about two weeks later  Geo. Cahili; received S7,S00 for the  other half interest. The Climax is  close to the Copper Cliff and Mound  which the company purchased in 1902  for 552,000. These claims are not more  than 4.000 feet from the Wellington  group where I have my interests with  Messrs. Gladden, Paton and Hodges of  Greenwood. We have three full claims  and several fractions with lots of ore  of different grades in sight. The  Daly Reduction company have constructed a large flume through the  three claims which is capable of carrying 1000 miners inches of water to  their penstock at the head of  the mill.  It was during the construction of  this flume last year that several high  grade  veins   were   uncovered  on   the  Cracker Jack and Cannon Ball claims  which wc are crown granting this fall  together with our other properties. The  fall from the penstock to the mill is  260 feet, being carried by steel distributing pipes over two feet in diameter to different sections of the mill  and power plant. The crushers and  conveyors are run by a three foot  Cassel wheel, the five batteries of eight  stamps each are fed by automatic  challenge feeders a nine foot Pelton  wheel supplies power for the battries,  etc., and another 24 inch wheel furnishes power for the 16 free vanners.  The cyanide plant is in the same building but below the vanner floor. There  are 12 leaching tanks, six slime tanks  and three gold tanks, for treating the  concentrates, but about 40 per cent of  gold can be saved on the copper plates.  The Dominion government this spring  surrendered 200 acres of the Indian  Reserve flat to' the Daly Reduction  company for a smelter site. Mr. A.  H. Brown is superintendent ofthe Daly  Reduction company's works in Hedley,  Mr. West Rodgers is superintendent of  the Daly Reduction company and Yale  Mieihg company, Mr. P. S. Jones is  superintendent of the Nickle Plate  mine, and Mr. M. K Rogers is the  general manager for both  companies.  Mr. Peter Scott the discoverer of the  camp came to Hedley last June in the  interests of the Kingston Mining company who are expected to start up  again this fall. Mr. Scott returned  to New York a few days after the  government auction sale of Hedley  lots. Mr. C. A. R. Lambley was auct  ioneer and I was clerk, several of  Greenwood's old timers who are employed in camp Hedley bought lots at  the sale, among others Mr. Finlay  Fraser paid S435 for one lot and R. S.  Collia gave $255 for another. A large  number of lots were sold most of them  averaged $100-Cacti. "'The' sale iafted  two days June 27 and 28, and the provincial government realized nearly  $12,000, which was all subscribed local.  ly, there being no strangers or uninterested parties at the sale. I managed to get a snap on a wh&le block of  lots well situated, some of which 1  have come in to dispose of.  Most of the people have great faith  in the Similkameen townsite, however  it is hard to tell which of the many  townsites in the Similkameen will become cities when transportation arrives. Princeton will undoubtedly become the metropolis for the upper  Similkameen, while' I think Keremeos  will become a large distributing point  for the lower Similkameen, and we  expeet-Similkameen City -will become  the mining centre for the middle  Similkameen on account of its typographical situation and close proximity  to the rich mines.  I spent considerable time in the  Aspen Grove copper camp this spring  where I sampled the camp for Mr.  Rodgers. Several new and promising  strikes have lately been made. The  biggest was on the Tom Cat group  where 16 feet of gray and metallic copper ore averaging 15 per cent copper  with small values in gold and silver  was opened up. This property adjoins the Portland group on the north  o��ned by tlie Portland Mining and  Smelting company of Indiana. The  Aspen Grove camp on a whole is a  wondesful cupper camp of great possibilities. The ore deposits occur  .sometimes in a diabase rock and sometimes in an aniygdaloidal structure  greatly resembling the Lake .Superior  copper deposits. The Big Souix has a  large ore dump which averages 15 per  cent copper.  Considering the lack of capital being  expended in this camp one cannot fail  to notice the large amount of prospecting work done and still goes on in  most cases with good results. On  nearly all the claims held there is tonnage in sight for the lirst lucky railway that taps the camp.  There is quite a coal boom in the  Nicola Valley, several companies are  at present developing their extensive  holdings. Mr. Redman, E. M., was  bonding every coal claim that was on  the market. It was rumored he was  acting for the C. P. R. who are expected to start construction from  Spencer's Bridge this fall.  A few days before leaving the Similkameen Jack Neil and Nick Pickard  made a rich strike on Sterling creek  on   a  big  quartz ledge.    I  was unable  Continued on last page.  RAILWAY  BUILDING  C. P. R. Will Raise Large  Sum of Money.  Great Northern Work Rushed���Midway And Vernon*  It will not be surprising if the Canadian Pacific Railway company again  begins active building operations in  the west. The directors of the big  railway recently announced an issue of  new common stock to the amount of  ��25,500,000, and a meeting of the shareholders is to be held in Montreal on  October 5th to authorize the new issue.  While the officers of the company are  reticent about making any announcements until shareholders express their  approval of the extra heavy loan, it is  understood that the greater portion of  the money is to be used in maicing extensions in the west.  For sometime past the C. P. R,  officials have been worried over the  activity of the Great Northern in  Southern British Columbia and the  probability of the American road getting into tlie Similkairtoen and Nikola  before trie Canadian comoany co.:ld  make arrangements to build in there.  C. P. R. officials have recently been  over the ground and it is understood  have urged upon their principals the  desirability of running feeders into  these promising districts before the  advent of the Great Northern.  The necessary money for the construction of a road between Midway  and Spence's bridge will be secure'd  through this issue of debentures. It  now looks as if early next year there  will be a great race between the C. P.  R. and Great Northern to reach the  Similkameen and Nicola.  j. W. Stewart who has the contract  for the construction of the Grand  Forks-Phoenix branch of the Great  Northern and tlie_G'ranby"^mei'ter_sp^"f"  is rushing the work in order to get the  track laid before the heavy snow falls.  At the present rate of construction he  will likely succeed in doing so and  Great Northern trains should be running into Phoenix before the first of  the year. Good progress is -.lso being  made on the Curlew-Midway branch  and that work is also likely to be completed kefore the end of the year. This,  line will oe continued to Greenwood as  soon as men are available, but all labor  is now concentrated on completing the  work under way before winter sets in.  The New York syndicate who are  negotiating for the construction of the  Midway and Vernon railway will send  further representatives here. They  should arrive next week. It is expected  that a definite annoiinccu cut in reference to this important undertaking  will be made at an early date. There  is no railway proposition in the West  which offers greater inducements to  the investor than the Midway and  Vernon. Traversing a district rich in  mineral, agricultural and timber  wealth, this line should pay from the  start. The West Fork country alone  has sufficient ore tonnage to offer local  smelters to make the enterprise an attractive one, and by the construction  of this road the continually increasing  agricultural aud horticultural products  of the rich Okanagan va'ley will find a  direct and profitable market in the  mining towns of the Boundary and  Kootenay.  Mr Warrington engineer in charge  has completed the survey of the road  up the North Fork for the Kettle Valley lines. It is not yet kuowu when  actual construction of this work will  be begun but the company has secured  from the Dominion government as  cash subsidy of $fi.400 a mile to assist  them in its construction.

Local Conservatives are quite  indignant over the fact that the  elections in Yale-Cariboo will  hot be held until after the general election. They claim it is  giving an unfair advantage to  the Liberal candidate. This  argument is based on the assumption that a great many  electors like to vote for the candidate of the party in power.  Admitting this to be a fact our  conservative friends must then  admit that their indignation is  not genuine or that they have no  hope of the conservatives being  in the majority in the general  election. If there was the slightest possible chance of the conservatives v;inning out in the  general contest they should rejoice as a belated election in Yale-  Cariboo would give them a cinch.  Delaying the elections in large  aud scattered districts without  adequate transportation facilities  is as fair for one party as the  other. It would be a physical  impossibility to hold the election  in Yale Cariboo two weeks after  nomination and give the electors  in outlving communities a fair  opportunity to exercise their franchise. This was demonstrated in  1896 when J. A. Mara arranged  that the election in Yale-Cariboo  should be held on   the  same  day  as the general election because  he felt that his chances of election were as good as those of his  party throughout the Dominion.  What was the result ? No polling booths were established at  several points in the district and  some electors had to travel 100  miles to reach the nearest polling  booth. The man who lives in  Chilocotin has the same right to  his franchise as the man in the  city of Toronto and a reasonably  convenient opportuuity should be  afforded him to exercise that  franchise.  Conservatives should not show  their fear of the general election  by howling because the election  in Yale-Cariboo will be subsequent to the general election aud  the Liberal candidate will have  the advantage of being the candidate of the party in power.  DISHONEST  ASSESSMENT  A careful scrutiny of various  provincial assessment rolls has  revealed the s+artling fact th?t  assessors probably acting under  instructions have dealt very leniently with the large land owners,  while the poor farmers have been  assessed up to the full market  value of their properties. The  reason for this is not hard to find.  The big land owner in this province is usually a good Tory who  provides sinews of war in every  political contest. They get their  reward in the shape of inequitable  and dishonest assessments.  The practice has been continued for years until it was found  necessary to practically double  the rate of taxation already high.  Had the big land owners of the  province been assessed in pro-  portiqn to that imposed on the  more humble farmers there would  have been no necessity to impose  additional burdens at the present  time. Every owner of 100 acres  or 200 acres' of land in this province is today paying double taxation because now and for a  number of years the big landed  proprietors are not and were not  paying their fair share.  Those who know the record of  the Tory party are not surprised  at this state of affairs. Whether  dealing with indirect taxation in  the shape of customs duties or  direct taxation on land and per-  Mharproperty" values^" thlTTofy  government succeeds in so manipulating affairs that the burden  of taxation falls on the poorer  classes and .the favored few escape their fair share.  Notwithstaniing the increase  of taxation in this prcvince its  financial outlook is no brighter  nor will it be until a Liberal  government is placed in power.  Then assessments will be fairly  made and taxation fairly applied.  The rich will have to pay his  share as well as the poor man  and both  ends will  be  made to  meet not by grinding the poer  struggling farmer but making  one and all contribttte equitably  to the revenue of the province.  ^mmms^w^mwBwimsswswBBt  A STRONG MEMBER.  Big Bill Galliher is invincible  in Kootenay. This is particularly aggravating to the Tories  who arc so hungry for the spoils  of office and finding no opportunity to get even with those  pestilent Grits they are indulging  in the pastime of quarrelling  among themselves. This has so  discouraged C. H. Mcintosh the  Conservative candidate that according to a pretty well authenticated rumor, he will remain in  Ottawa where is is- now enjoying  life and will not face the enemy  in Kootenay with hopelessly  divided forces.  Mr. Galliher's popularity in  Kootenay is not to be wondered  at. No man could accomplish  more for his constituency than  did he during his four years of  office. A hard worker and popular with both sides of the house  he succeeded in securing for  Kootenay what was needed to infuse new life into mining and  allied industries.  The heathen may rage and  Conservatives may hurl nasty  epithets at each other but the  great body of the electors will  cast their ballots to place W. A.  Galliher where he can continue  the good work in the interests of  Kootenay and the whole Dominion.  DR. MATHISO.N  DENTIST  Naden-Flood Block, Greenwood. B. C.

THAT CARNIVAL  Discussing the  Pecent Summer Carnival the Grand Forks Sun says.  ���'Almost the sole topic of conversation on our streets and in public places  during the past two days has been the  lamentable���lamentable because the  good name of the city is at stake���  muddle in which the finance committee  of the carnival directors found themselves at the end of the celebration.  At -.present-there are charges and counter charges being made. The secretary of the co mmittee states that the  liabilities exceed the receipts by about  ��1200. This statement is doubted by a  number of people, even by some who  were connected with the enterprise.  These people make the rssertion that  there was a sufficient amount of money  taken in to meet all obligations and  leave a snug profit besides. As to  which of these statements is correet,  The Sun is not at present prepared to  say; but when the true facts are made  known there will be no hesitation on  the part of this paper to publish the  facts. In the meantime, however, the  fact remains that there is an army of  unpaid actors, entertainers, theatrical  managers, newspaper men and mechanics who are spreading the news  broadcast that they have been victimized. The concensus of local opinion apyears to be that the good name  of tlie city has received a stain which  it will take years to wipe out. In justice to two or three of the directors, it  may be stated they claim their views  on financial matters were never consulted.

Railway rates to ��� the Spokane Interstate Fair, which opens October 3.  will be better this year than thev have  been for several years* Manager  Robert H. Cosgrove seems to have hit  upon Herbert Bolster's knack of doing  business with the railroads. He has  been granted a one fare rate from all  points in the Inland Empire to Spokane and return. This is the first  time this has been granted in several  years. "Like the Old Fruit Fairs" is  the motto at Spokane this year and it  applies to the railroad rates as well as  to other point.  One fare rates for the round trip will  be granted by each road on a different  day. Besides these all the roads unite  in giving a rate of a fare and a third  for the round trip, good throughout  the fair. All tickets, whether they are  the general reduction of a fare and  third orthe-special,one..fare^rate_oira  single day, provide that the purchaser  may remain in Spokane until the day  following the close of the fair or he  may return sooner.  Single fares for the round trip will  be sold on the Spokane Falls & Noth-  ern road October 4. October 5 the  single fare round trip ticket can be  purchased on the Great Northern road  at any point between Wenatchee aud  Bonner's Ferry. October 6 these  tickets will be sold on the Northern  Pacific and the O. R. & N. roads at all  points between Hope, Wallace, Walla  Walla arid Pasco.  This arrangement will bring the  crowds into Spokane on different days  so as to prevent such an overcrowding  of the hotels as will force visitors to  the fair to go without beds.

EIGHT YEARS OLD  Goodell For Northport  Report That He Will be The New  Superintendent-  Word   comes   from    Rossland   that  Albert I.  Goodell, formerly   superintendent of the Boundary Falls smelter  _will.be the���new���superintender!t of..the.  Le   Roi   smelter   at   Northport.    Mr.  Goodell was in Rossland last week and  will   probably   take    charge " of   the  Northport plant as soon   as   he   can  make arrangements to turn   over the  smelter   near   Grant's   Pass,  Oregon,  which he recently erected.  The position of superintendent was  offered to Mr. Goodell some time ago.  E. J. Wilson, the present superintendent, who by the way was formerly  superintendent at Boundary Falls,  tendered his resignation sometime ago  and he is remaining on only until such  time as the Le Roi management can  secure a suitable man to succeed him.  The Boundary Creek Times Begins  Its Ninth Year.  With this issue the Boundary Creek  Times begins its ninth year. It came  into-existence in September, 1896, and  through fat years and lean years it has  tried to do its share in the upbuilding  of Greenwood and the Boundary.  Eight years ago Greenwood was a  hamlet of some 200 people with its  future and that of the Boundary yet in  doubt. Today Greenwood is a full  fledged city with all the concomitants  of a commercial metropolis. Eight  years ago the nearest chattered bank  was at Vernon, today (although some  people claim this not an unmixed  blessing) there are three chartered  banks established in the city. Eight  years ago the nearest railway and  telegraph office* was at Marcus, Wash.;  today one can ride into the city in a  comfortable pullman, and telegraph or  telephone lines send instantaneous  messages to all parts of the earth.  Eight years ago the Boundary was a  district of prospects; .oday it is a district of shipping mines���the, largest  shipping district in the province.  Eight years ago when the miner wanted to have his ore treated he loaded it  on cayuses which packed it to Marcus  whence it was sent to Tacoma the  nearest smelter; today Boundary ore is  treated at three home smelters with a  combined capacity of about 4000 tons a  day. But why continue! Eight  years is after all not a long time and  although one is naturally impatient, a  retrospect shows that the growth aud  development has been remarkably  rapid.  The Boundary Creek Times enjoyed  all the blessings and most of the reverses that are usually the lot of the  pioneer. It seldom happens that the  pioneer gets his reward in this world's  goods but theBoundary.pioneer J has at  least the satisfaction of knowing that  he has done something in making the  Boundary the greatest mining district  on earth and Greenwood the mining,  smelting and commercial centre of the  Boundary.  After all journalistic life in the  Boundary is not without its compensations. There is a human satisfaction in knowing that our'competitcrs  sleep peacefully in the journalist  boneyard���and a- further- satisfaction  in the fact that the sheriff has been  good enough not to call on us in his  official capacity.  newly formed comedy company. This  last-named organization will be seen  in all the principal towns of Western  Canada, presenting the latest comedy  successes?. Each of these companies  will twice make the trip from Winnipeg to the Pacific Coast, each presenting four plays new to Western Canada.  To illustrate, Mr. H arold Nelson on  his first tour to the coast will prevent  "Heart and Sword," and returning  eastward will be seen in a thoroughly  metropolitan production of "Faust,"  Goethe's immortal drama. On the  second trip to the Pacific Coast he will  have two other pretentious productions.  The same plan will be followed in  respec*- to the corned}' company. This  means that local theatre patrons will  during the current season see eight  productions directed by   Mr. Walker.  For Rent, Guns, Pianos, Sewing  Machines, Ect., Ect. See A. L. White.

Besides his circuit of five  theatres (which includes Winnipeg's  popular playhouse), he is directing the  tour of Mr. Harold Nelson, and of   his  Rumor That One Will be Built in East  Kootenay*  A Victoria dispatch states that steps  are being taken for building a railway  into the Fladhead River coal lands by  representatives of two syndicates now  in the city. These are Judge Prather,  of Spokane, and J, Mcintosh, of Grand  Forks (directors of the Kootenay Coal  Company), and F. W. Teezel, of Nelson, representing a Nelson syndicate  Both corporations are heavily interested in lands adjacent to the Crow's  Nest Coal Co., and which were recently  thrown open.  Arrangements have been made by  these two two syndicates to hand over  one l.undred claims between them,  comprising 64,000 acres, to this company, the latter in turn agreeing to  construct a railway' aud put up coke  ovens. This land on the Fladhead  river will be opened up to all.  The names of these back of the new  company are not known but an impression prevails that D. C. Corbin is back  of it. It is said to be backed by ample  capital and the company will be capitalized at ten million dollars. Both  companies have large holding claims  yet remaining.
