 1?  ���**,���  Vol. 10  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, AUGUST 1,   1902. j  No. 48-//-^  1  James Dale Goes East for  Capital for Development.  A  f  Money Needed to Open up tlie Riches  of the West Fork.  James Dale one. of the best known  pioneers of this district leaves today  for his old home in Illinois for the purpose of raising-' money to develop the  Butcher Boy and adjoining* properties.  Mr. Dale was the*locator oi the Carmi,  the Butcher.Boy.and. other prominent  '' West Fork" properties and he has shown  - his   faith   in   the district  by staying  with   it   through   all   the   trials   arid  tribulations incident to   pioneer prospecting   in   any  district..   That   this  confidence in:  the .district   was* fully  justified is demonstrated  by  the* development  of  the -Carmi    and   more  ���latterly by the work on the Butcher  ������Boy*.     As is. well known   the   Carmi  ' was   sold years; ago   to   an   English  ���syndicate headed by  E. H.  Thruston.  : From ;the. property about 1000 tons.of  ore was''-"'shipped   to   the* Greenwood  ./smelter and  netted about  $20 a ton.,  .The ledge which varies in width from  6 /to- 2; Ifeet*,-'carries . iron;-.sulphides,  galena    and 'copper, " the    principal  values being gold.  By surface cuts, the vein has been  traced across the Butcher Boy and in  to the May an adjoining claim. A 75  foot shaft *w*as also . sunk, on -the  Butcher; Boy, atX the bottom of which  drifts; were run east and.west, 35 feet  and 50 feet respectfully on the ore  body. Another drift was run* at the  46 foot level. *-* Last winter three  sleigh loads of ore were shipped to the  smelter before the roads broke up. The  smelter retufris'for this was' $46.35 per  ton. Adjoining the Butcher Boy are  . the No. 3, No. 2 Fraction, May, Hartford Fractional and No. 6, in all of  which as well as the Butcher Boy, Mr,  Dale is interested.  ^Jhe^group^has^the^distinctadvaiiU  age cf having the ledge clearly defined and'values sufficiently high to insure a big profit-from mining even  under the most adverse conditions.  Mr. Dale is a splendid type of the  hardy pioneer who deserves success.  He is going east with no. wild cat proposition but with a property which is  sure to pay handsome dividends to  ��������� those who invest their money." They  have also the additional assurance  that any money intrusted to Mr. Dale  will be carefully and judiciously expended.  A. J. McMillan.  A. J. McMillan, managing-director  ofthe Snowshoe company and a director of the Le Roi was in the city on  Wednesday accompanied .by J. W.  Astley superintendent of the Snowshoe.  Mr. McMillan recently  returned  from  ���London where he spent the winter. He  states that British Columbia investments are far from popular in England  and that an improvement is not likely  to come until the province regains its  reputation by its properties paying  dividends. In his opinion unsettled  political conditions are largely responsible for the. unsatisfactory state  . of affairs.  City Makes an Exchange  with Provincial Govt.  Notice To Contractors.  SGlLfllWIBE  The Erection of Public Buildings will  be Commenced Immediately.  Arrangements have been made with  the government for an exchange of  sites for school and court house. The  government deeds to the city the present court house site and the city purchases for the government five lots at  the corner of Deadwood and government streets. The government also  giires the city $1,000 for the exchange.  The site at the corner of Deadwood and  Government streets is 125x110 feet. It  will make a very convenient place for  the court house, work on which will be  commenced in a short*time.  The site secured from the .government will be increased by the purchase  of three adjoining lotsimaking 150 by  110 feet. It will be levelled off and the  school building erected thereon as  speedily as possible. The trustees are  now asking for competitive plans for  the building. ��� .,..*���*���-���  " Next Monday a by-law will be submitted to the ratepayers to raise by the  way of debentures the sum of $S;000,  which "will" be expended in the purchase of the site and in augmenting  the government grant for school building. As already .stated, the debentures have been sold at par and all that  is needed is the assent of the ratepayers -before the money is.placed to the  credit of the city.  ��� The construction of two large and  important public buildings in the city^  will give employment to a considerable  number of men and when finished will  add to the appearance of a city noted  for the substantial character of its  buildings.  C. P..R. Officials.  W. S. Keith Returns From  Soldiering in. South Africa.  II  Is  No  Country  For  a  Poor Man.  Greenwood Boys.  W. S. Keith returned to Greenwood  on Monday after spending a year and  a half in South Africa. Mr. Keith  went out as a member of the South  Africau constabulary and saw much  fighting.. He desired to see something  of South Africa in peace times but was  invalided home. Last winter he was  thrown from his hcrse and received an  injury tohis spi'ne from which he has  not fully recovered.  Mr. Keith does not think that South  Africa will offer many inducements to  a poor'-man. In his opinion it is a  country of wealthy men and coolie  labor. Skilled mechanics will do well  there for some time but the man without capital or a trade had better keep  away. He. warns people intending to  go inland to the mines to be prepared  to meet the requirements of the regulations. No one is allowed to leave Cape  Town for the interior unless he has 100  pounds sterling ,or is under contract  to 'work in one of jthe mines. This  regulations is being rigidly enforced  and those unable to comply with it will  have to remain in Cape Tpwn where  there is no employment for a iaboring  man.  Mr.' Keith states that F.B.Smith,  Henry Nicholson and Trimm who enlisted here will likely remain in South  Africa. Those who are returning may  be expected home any day.

Mr. McHemy th" newly appointed  engineer is making his first trip over  the   line.  The party returned to Robson on  Monday and from there proceeded  Coast ward.  The Greenwood boys who went to  Nelson returned on Monday well  satisfied with the celebration and the  treatment they received there.

W. Kent, manager of the Vernan and.Nelson Telephone company described the regretta  at Nelson, Mr. Kent is secretary-  treasurer of the N. P. A. A. O; and an  enthusiastic waterman. He was umpire of the races at Nelson - and was  delighted with the success of the two  days' carnival. To a Times representative he said "we never had such a  course, nor such treatment., "There  ���was better racing and better time than  at any of the previous meetings o�� the  association. The management was  excellent and everyone instead of being in the way did everything to make  the racing a success. The Victoria  Juniors are a wonderful crew winning  the junior four oared race on the firs  day in 7.59 and the senior race the next  day in 7.57 1-10 record breaking time."  A Very Pretty Wedding at Anaconda  on Monday.  The home of Mr. and Mrs. Medill at  Anaconda was the scene of a very attractive wedding at high noon on  Monday last when their youngest  daughter Miss Emma was married to  Mr. J. H. Ready. The ceremony was  performed by Rev. Dr. McRae, D. D.  The bride jwas attended by her sister  Miss Olga Medill and the best man was  Mr. G. Inkster. The bride was costumed in silver-gray silk mohair, cut  en traiue wtth plain corsage, trimmed  with white silk applique,. The fichu  which was white silk net trimmed  with point lace was tied in large  corsage bow, the ends falling to the  foot of the skirt.  The flowers were white hyacinths  and sweet peas.' Miss Olga was attired in pale blue trimmed with white  applique.  After the ceremony the happy pair  led the way to the dining room where  au elaborate champagne luncheon  was served and wliere they received  the many toasts and well wishes of  their friends. There were a number  of handsome presents.  Mr. and Mrs. Ready were escorted to  the tram by a number of friends and  amidst showers of rice they started for  Colfax, North Dakota, which will be  .their future home.  For Good Purpose.  fiefiefit Conceit In "Behalf of F. W-  Riley next Tuesday Evening  Next Tuesday evening in the Auditorium a benefit concert will be given  in behalf of F. W. Riley who has been  in the city for a few days. Mr. Riley  met with an accident at Port Perry,  Ont., which permanently injured his  spine. He travels about in a wheeled  chair. On the the level he can propel  himself but up grades a faithful dog  hauls him. This dog hauled him up  the steep hill to Phoenix theotherday.  Mr. Riley started down aud when he  got half way the chain to which the  break is attached jumped. The chair  started down at a furious pace and he  escaped death by turning it into the  hillside.  Mr. Riley comes highly recommended by Rev. Mr. Hogg, a well known  Presbyterian divine of Winnipeg. It  is hoped that the peopie of Greenwood  whose sympathies have always gone  out to the permanently disabled will  liberally patronize the concert.  Tenders will be received by the Cas-  sade Water Power & Light Co., Ltd.,  for the erection of about three miles  of high tension pole line near Grand  Forks. For further particulars apply  to,  W.

Prior, minister of mines, will  be in Greenwood on August 13th. The  Colonel who is also acting premier is  making a tour of the province and will  be pleased to meet anyone having  business with his department.  Frank Bailey of Similkameen City  has just returned fromla four weeks'  trip through the Similkameen country,  and in an interview with a Times  representative, he said :  "I arrived in Princeton in time for  the anuual midsummer sports. The  town was well decorated, and the.races  were well attended considering weather, which at that time was very wet  and stormy. The football match came  off successfully on the second day in  favor of the Keremeos team one goal  to nothing; I played for the lower  Similkameen. The football players  are anxious to try their skill with competing teams from the Boundary.  I spent most of my time in the Aspen  Grove camp, and visited the principal  claims. I found considerable development work going on, and I was surprised to set a decided improvement in  the quality and quantity of the ore  bodies as depth was gained. The  Aspen Grove camp is situated in: the  Similkameen Mining* Division, near  the summit between the Similkameen  and Nicola Valley, and surrounded by  a large agricultural area,7 lying* about  35 miles north of Princeton, (by the  trail) and about 20 miles to the South  of Nicola Lake (by the stage road).  I examined most of the important ���  groups in this camp,  and  find   they  have every  possibility   of  becoming  larg e copper producing mines in the  near future. When these large ore deposits are developed, and transportation arrives in the Similkameen, the  Aspen Grove district will take a foremost place in British Columbia lode  mining, and will   in   all   probability  rank  as  one of  the^jnost important^,  "factors in the production of copper in  Canada.  American capital is developing the  "Portland group"-' The company is  known as the Portland Mining Company, Limited; J. E. Bate one of the  original locators and superintendent is  working a crew of eight men, and has  sunk a shaft to the 100 foot level with  satisfactory results. Drifting has commenced and from the open cross cuts  on the surface, a deposit of eight per  cent grey copper ore is exposed for 150  feet in width.  The Mira Monte company of California were working ten men on the  "Georgia" group, and a large dump of  copper ore associated with slabs of  native copper. They have some,200  feet of development work done.  The Big Sioux has a well defined  lead some eight feet in width, and was  one of the first locations made in this  camp. A prospecting shaft is down  some 85 feet in copper glance ore, over  200 tons of which is on the dump. Grab  samples give assay returns of 22.6 per  cent copper, $4.50 gold and 1% ounces  in silver. Mr. Henry H. Schmidt the  owner and locator left a large farm in  North Dakota and came out to Mr.  Robert's ranch in the summor of 1899  in search of this wonderful deposit.  With a rough sketch of the country,  and information which he received  from a dying prospector in North  Dakota, after spending several months  in prospecting for this ore and in treading down the bunch grass between  Robert's ranch and Fish Lake, his  search was ended in the discovery of  the claim, now known as the Big Sioux  mine. Mr. Schmidt has had several  large offers of his property. His family came out this year and he intends  waiting for transportation. Picked  samples have been taken from Mr.  Schmidt's claim, which gave as high  as 65 per cent copper, 98.00 gold and  Cootltinsdoa Fugt 3. ������"���W  THE BOUNDARY CREEK TIMES  Riverside Nurseries  6ran<l Forks ��     ��     martin Burrell, Prop.

All this because there is a  ���strike at the Fernie coal mines and  consequently it is impossible to get a  supply of coke to run the smelters.  The Crow's Nest Pass Coal company  who have a monoply of the coke and  coal business in the Crow's Nest Pass,  have apparently done nothing towards  bringing about the settlement ofthe  strike. The company may have very  good reasons for allowing: things to  drift along as if the strike were a good  thing and just suited them but the  mining industry is of greater importance than the interests of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal company.  When a great industry is jeopardized  by  the acts of  a few men or a single  company^ then the! government should  should,   interfere, o.    The:. Dominion  government can if it will, put  an end,  to the  prisent crisis  in a  very short  time.    It should do so.   The Dominion  government can  use its labor depart-  - ment in settling the strike, and it can  dorwhat is of much greater importance,  it can 'open up its coal measures in the  Crow's, JSfest  Pass  so thai   the entire  .mining   industry    of    south    eastern  , British Columbia - the most important  J*5.dustryj>f the^proyinee���shall not be  : at the mercy of one coal company. The  country has a veritable mine of wealth  in its Crow's Nest coal  fields.   These  . should be developed  and operated by  the government.   Then there would be  every assurance that the smelting industry of this country would  be  fully  protected in. the matter of fuel.  THE McADAMS CASE.  Office of the Sec.-Treas.,  P.  O.

Continuad from Frst Page,  6 ounces in silver, but most of the ore  deposits in the Aspen Grove camp are  large, but of a low grade.  The Golden Sovereign group lies to  the south west of and adjoining the  Big Dutchman; and consists of five  claims   owned   by   Bate   Bros.,  et al.  Seams of copper glance and occasionally of metallic copper were notice-  able'in the ore'deposits, and sometimes  pieces of native or metallic copper  were'found weighing 100 pounds. Mr.  Bate has about'; two tons of metallic  copper sacked up on the dump, which  will' as'sa-y : any where from 40 to 60 per  cent in copper.  The'X^ihcinnaffi'group lies 'to the  south west Kbf j' the Golden Sovereign  group, and is held by the same owners,  and���consists of six mineral claims.  The'ore deposit has been opened up  for* over 100 feet in width, by open  crosscuts, from which an average  sampling gaqe 2.5 per cent copper, S4  iu gold, and one ounce in silver. To  the:'south of these claims is the Port  landmine."'* About half a mile south  of the Portland group and.a little west  of the Vancouver and Pearl gro'ips, is  the'-.-Queen'i; of. Hearts group, where I  have, just started to open up and develop" two claims, situated on the loca-  tiotrline of the C. & W. railway, which  has-been surveyed from Spence's  bridge to Midway. I discovered last  yeai^a stringer of metallic copper in a  depbsit. ,of low grade copper ore. A  syndicate is now being formed for the  purpose^of, crown granting and developing these claims.  The character of ore exposed on the  surface on the Queen of Hearts mineral claim is the same as the majority of  the claims in this camp. One deposit  is found (near the discovery post) at a  contact between a dike of felsite and  crystalline limestone. Both the limestone and dike are much fractured and  traversed by little slips, which contain  various oxidation of minerals includ  ing metallic copper.  Camp Hedlejr is -rapidly coming.to  the front. Unlike the 'Aspen Grove  camp, its principal valuable minerals  are gold. The Nickle Plate mines are  employing about 45 men, and have  lately bonded the Winnipeg mineral  claim for $30,000 from Geo. Stumps  who located" Jihe property for the first  time this spring. ;Mr. Rodgers the  general managerl;;of ihe Nickle Plate  has been trpingf to purchase"; the  Chuchuwayha Indian reserve flat from  the Dominion government for the  erection of a large plant and stamp  mill, to treat his high grade ores, but  offer was declined. Contracts have  been let for the masonery work and  the plant will either be erected oh the  east addition to Similkameen  City,'or  I .IWHil HIiUMM ��� iBiiiwiyiiM���m       I    1*T.^r^^^Mig^  Notice of Dissolution.

'SI  He Says Smelters Were not Closed  Down for Lack of Coke-  The statement of Elias Rogers, managing* . director of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal company which was published in Toronto and telegraphed to  ���western newspapers makes interesting  readiug but unfortunately it is not a  true presentment of the facts. To  those in the east who are uiiacquaint-  with the real conditions of affairs, it  is doubtless convincing. Those who  are living in a district where smelters  are closed down, mines employing but  few men and business at a standstill  cannot  be convinced  that everything  9 #  9 9  9 Headquarters for  is lovely by any number of specious  arguments. Sometime ago at a ban-  qnet given in Toronto, Hon. Geo. E.  Foster.quoted dards of figures to prove  that the country was prosperous. Sir  Wilfred Laurier's reply was brief and  to-the point. He said that when the  Liberals got into power, figures would  not be necessary to prove prosperity;  all the people had to do was to put  their hands in their pockets and they  would know that they were prosperous.  Mr. Rogers may be able to convince  the people of the east that the smelters  are running full blast and that the  mining industry has not been effeeted  by the absence ot cokey but it is a more"  difficult thing to convince those who  can see that the smelters are not running, who can see mep who were working in the mines, walking the streets  doing nothing, or who are leaving for  other- places where they can get em-  employment.  What.are the true facts ?  After the accident at Fernie, no coke  was sent to the British Columbia  .smelters ami as soon as the supply at  the various smelters was exhausted  they were obliged lo shut down. The  Granby, the Mother Lode and the  Sunset smelters were all closed on this  account. Then came the strike and  there was still less assurance chat coke  would be forthcoming but the coal company succeeded in maintaining an output of about 18ii tons of coke per day  from their mines at Michell and a sup-  | Fishing  Tackle  ��  *  ��� 9  9  ��  *,*��  * *  :*  *  ��  9  9  9  ��  *  *  *  *  *  -��  ��  *  9  a  ��  *  *  A complete stock of everything in that line.reasonable  prices.  3.

From this  they offered the Granby peopla 80 tons  a day although they required 160 tons,  the Mother Lode 40 tons, although  they required 100 tons, and the Sunset  smelter 20 tons although 40 tons was  required to keep its furnace running.  The managementof the Sunset smelter  could not see any profit or advantage  in paying for coke that wa�� not  adequate to keep their furnace running  and refused to accept any until the  company could give some assurance  that a full and regular supply could  be sent. Of course the other smelters  have more than one furuace and with  the^coke furnished can run|one or more  furnaces but none of them can run to  their full capacity. We know whereof  we speak in reference tD the Boundary  smelters and we can ' say on good  authority that the situation is no more  promising at Nelson, Trail or North-  port. Now that the miners at Michel  and Morrissey have gone out there is  likely to be a still greater shortage.  The merits of the strike need not be  discussed here. Whether the company  or the men are right or wrong is a  matter of little moment to thosa who  are dependent on the mining industry  for their very existence. The point is  that it should not be within the power  of one company or its employees lo  completely tie up the most important  industry in British Columbia.  Mr. Rogers says "he did not think it  possible that any honest minded person understanding the facts would for  a moment think of asking the government to break its agreement. What  agreement ? If there is an agreement  between the Dominion government  and the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company giving the latter a mono ply of  the coal trade and thus placing the  entire mining industry at its mercy,  then the sooner it is annulled the better for. the public. We have no  quarrel with the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal company. They are entitled to  every credit for their enterprise but  the accident and the strike have de^  monstrated that in the interests of the  mining and smelting industries there  should be at least an alternative source  for coke supply. The loss to smelters,  mine owners and business men aggregate millions of dollars since the strike  commenced. Accidents and strikes  may happen at anytime. The Dominion owns 50,000 acres of coal lands, a  portion of which if opened up would  successfully prevent such a serious  state of affairs as exists at preseni.  Since the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  company are unable to preveut  accidents or their men striking, they  surely do not wish to ruin the people  of eastern British Columbia while they  are arranging their difficulties.
