 ^W0&;;0im*y-  G  iy  ������.'���niKia  ,-ru    ti! ..-���  Vol. 7. -  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, JUNE 5,'."t  No. 41  Story of a Greenwood's High Grade Mine���Practically Abandoned in 1892 Becomes a Dividend Payer Eleven Years Latter���Result of  Mr. Fowler's Intelligent Development and the Mining Company's Successful Exploitation,  On Monday last the Providence  Mining company paid Wm. Fowler  $12,500, the final installment of the  purchase price for the Providence  mine. The papers were taken out of  escrow and the property legally transferred to the mining company. The  incident concludes another chapter in  the history of a mine which has established an enviable record among the  high grade mining properties of the  world and which will from all indications, .make rich those men who had  coniidence in the merits of the property and the courage to invest their  money in its purchase.  It is now eleven years ago since  prospectors from all parts of the  Rocky mountains and the Northwest  were attracted by reports of the wonderful showings of both high and low  grade ore found on the slopes of  Boundary creek. Among the argonauts was William Fowler, a typical  pioneer mining man, who had been a  prospector for nearly thirty years, and  who had tempted fortune "in ' the  miueral bearing hills between Yukon  and Old Mexico.  THE FIRST   LOCATION  Some prospectors in the summer of  1892 were industriously prospecting  the Providence mineral ciaim situated  at the mouth of Providence creek and  about one mile from the business  centre of the present  city . of-Green-  .wood. There was no town in those  days. The only building where the  city now stands was a prospector's  cabin near Twin creek. Mr. Fowler  was not then working the Providence  but happened to be on tlie ground  when a piece of float assay iug ��478 to  the ton was found. The parties owning the claim redoubled their efforts to  find the lead from which this float came  but did not meet with success. Mr.  Fowler located some ground in the  vicinity, but there were no railways,  not even wagon roads in those days.  The district was hundreds of miles  from railway communication, and as  there was but little prospect of securing such communication   in  the near  "~f iJtufeiMrl Fowler"~ahd" 6tHef~"p"rospec-"  tors went south. He prospected  through Idaho, as far south as Mexico,  and joined the Klondike rush   in  1898.  THE BIG   COPPER   MINES  A new generation of prospectors  came to the Boundary. The copper  market was booming. Copper went  soaring up to 16 and 17 cents per pound  and capital was looking- for big bodies  of copper ore. Attention was diverted  from the smaller high grade leads aud  claims like the Mother Lode, Knob  Hill, Old Ironsides, BigCopp.-r, Sunset  and many others were lee-! i*c\ and  partially  developed.    The., -sold  to big mining corporations, railways  and smelters were built, and Boundary's reputation as one of the loading  copper producers of the world was  securely established.  THE   TRANSITION    STAGE  In the interval of ten years during  which these big properties were developed towns grow up and became  incorporated and the hills became  populated with working miners, bringing with them all the concomitants  of a prosperous mining camp, William  Fowler was prospecting in other  parts, but he never forgot that float  on the Providence. Too experienced  a miner to be discouraged by indications that might deceive others, and  confident that his judgment was not  in error, through all these years he was  satisfied that the lead was there and  that the Providence would make a rich  mine.  RETURN   TO  BOUNDARY  He determined to return to the  Boundary district. In 1892 he came on  the hurricane deck oi a cayuse; in 1901  he came in a passenger car; in 1892 he  camped   on   the   banks   of   Boundary  creek; in 1901 he registered at well  appointed hotel. But the Providence  was still there almost as he left it in  1892. Men were too busy developing  the big copper mines to give much  time or consideration to the Providence. But the claim had been crown  granted years ago. It was held by  people in Spokane and it required time  and the exercise of considerable  patience to secure the property upon  terms favorable to the man who was  ready to stake his all and use his expert knowledge in converting a mere  prospect into a mine.  DEVELOPMENT   BEGINS.  Finally in October, 1901, Mr. Fowler  succeeded in securing the claim under  a lease and bond. He secured the  services of Mr. Whitwell, another experienced high grade miner, and they  went to work. Experience, rare judgment, intelligence and hard work won  out. The lead was discovered in place.  The rich float found ten years before  did come from a well defined lead in  the vicinity and Mr. Fowler had the  satisfaction of knowing that he made  no mistake when he returned to the  Boundary.  LOCAL CAPITAL-  Mr. Fowler did more. He convinced  the business men and others in Greenwood that right at the very doors���aye,  even within the very limits of the  city, there were veins of gold and silver  ore that would bring prosperity and  population to any mining town. To  the credit of Greenwood's business  let it be said, that as soon as conviction  came they were not slow to act. Mr.  Fowler needed money for the further  development of the property and local  people took a half interest. Among  those who became financially interested were W. M. Law, J. A. Russell  and J.J. Caulfield. They puiciiased  a half interest in May, 1902. Development was continued and in June a  shipment of ore was made to the  smelter.    The returns were so  satis  0  factory and the ore bodies m the Providence had been so well developed that  there was-no-longer-any doubt-regarding the value and permanency of the  mine.  THE COMING OF MADDEN  The local people interested then decided to acquire Mr. Fowler's remaining half interest in the property and  as he believed he could develop other  high grade properties in the vicinity  he decided to sell, the price for the  miue being $50,000, in four equal payments of 512,500 each. The Providence  Mining company was organized with a  capital of $200,000, divided into 40,000  five dollar shares. While the company  was being organized  C.  J.   McArthur  For confectionery and other toothsome articles go to the South End  Grocery.    W. S. Graham.  wired Mark F. Madden, of Madden  Bros., real estate and financial  brokers. Chicago, asking if he would  take a small interest in the company.  Mr. Madden and Mr. McArthur had  been boys together back in Colling-  wood, Ontario. One went to Chicago,1  and with several brothers established  a large financial firm there; the other  came west and engaged in mining.  Mr. Madden is a typical Chicagoan,  always ready to make an investment  when there is a fair chance of success  and to his friend's wire he replied that  he would be glad to take an interest,  but wanted more than Mr. McArthur  suggested. He came, he saw and was  conquered. He was quite willing to  take all the interest the local people  wished to part with and he and his associates purchased enough stock to furnish the,money for the initial payment  and leave a working balance in the  treasury of the company. They would  have taken more, but the returns from  shipments of ore were so satisfactory  that the stock was withdrawn from the  market.  PROVIDENCE MINING   COMPANY.  During Mr. Madden's first visit the  Providence Mining company was  fully organized with the following  officers: President, Mark F. Madden.  Chicago; vice-president and manager,  Duncan F. Mcintosh, Greenwood;  secretary-treasurer, W. M. Law, Greenwood. -The board of directors comprise these and J. J. Caulfield, J. A.  Russell, of Greenwood, and J. H. Peat  of Spokane. It may be added that W.  Macey of Phoenix, went into the  original syndicate who purchased Mr.  Fow'.er's half interest and still retains  his interest in the company.  THE GOLDEN STORY.  The deal was made and company  organized in September, 1902. Since  then chapters of the story of the  Providence's golden greatness have  appeared from time to time in these  columns���not for the purpose of boost  iug the Providence mine because there  was no necessity for that because no  .^Y��:.Ut^ff^-i?Qii!AJ^.-g*^ned^^nceJhe.  Providence was able to pay its own  way aud did not depend -open a capricious stock market. The reason for  marking the progress of the Providence  was that its success meant much for  Greenwood and has encouraged others  lo develop high grade mines until today there are a half dozen high grade  shippers near Greenwood. Mr. Mcintosh the superintendent began in  September with a force of five men.  This force was gradually increased  until now nearly fifty men are employed, a hoisting plant has been added and besides the ore shipped n large  amount of development work has been  done. Sixteen shipments of high  grade ore have been made to the Trail  smelters and four shipments of second  class ore to the Sunset smelter. Below  are the shipments and smelter returns:  Pounds-weight Value.  20436 $2 688 35  25960  1 679 06  6580      804 72  36010  1 869 03  30940  2 027 17'  39500   1 892 67  40910  3 190 79  33420  2 442 09  42160...:  2 405 41  32550.......  2 047 55  41530..  :  3 338 82  39060  2 329 24  44270  3 674 63  41970  1 564 58  36350  3 513 13  41360  4 027 27  553 006 39 694 Si  Second class  48758   505 15  49350   502 14  47182   524 09  55638  :...,1005 30  200 928 2 536 68  To this should be added about 51,500  which the company has received from  the smelter on account of increased  price of silver. The figures are given  as shown by the certificate of returns  from the smelter.  Outside the inital payment these  shipments paid the installments of the  purchase price, the last having been  made ou Monday. The mine never  looked better, regular shipments will  be maintained and regular dividends  paid. Of . course there are always  chances in mining but the Providence  will belie all indications if it does not  prove a permanent mine and a handsome dividend payer. And the Providence is not Greenwood's only high  grade mine. Mr. Fowler set the pace ;  other mines have reached the shipping  stage, development has just begun on  some but there are several locations  that are lying dormant and which  could be developed into dividend paying mines.  Bank Changes.  Tntr Mytton^Appointed- Manager -at  Regina.  H. F. Mytton manager of the. Greenwood branch of the Canadian Bank of  Commerce has been appointed manager  of tne Regina branch and will leave  for there in a few days. The promotion is a substantial one. Regina  is the capital of the northwest territories aud is growing rapidly. The  branch of the Bank of Commerce was  opened there a short time ago and Mr.  Mytton is the first regular manager  appointed.  While congratulating Mr. Mytton  en his deserved promotion, general  regret will be expressed in Greenwood  at the loss of a very enterprising and  popular citizen. As president of the  Greenwood Board of Trade" and in  various other ways he was always to the  oundary Ore Shipments*  front  in  promoting the best interests  of the city and district.  Mr. Mytton's successor here will be  W. Allison at present with the Portland branch. Mr. Allison was manager of the bank of B. C. at Kaslo  some years ago but later this branch  was closed. He is a brother-in-law of  Hon. Richard McBride, premier of the  province. ,  Eholt Liberals  Association Organized at Eholt on  Tuesday Last  Tuesday evening the Liberals of  Eholt and vicinity organized the Eholt  Liberal Association. J. R. Brown,  president of the Greenwood Liberal  Association, and Duncan Ross, secretary of the Interior District Liberal  Council, were present and assisted in  the work of organization. There was  a representative attendance. Officers  were elected as follows: President, R.  H. Anderson, vice-president, D. J,  McDonald; secretary-Treasurer, J. W.  McKinnon. The above officers and  Fred Kaiser and Sam McGormand  constitute the executive. Several  liberals at the B. C. and Denoro mines  who had intended to be present, were  prevented by the very wet night, but.  they will join the association later on.  Boarding Schools  Rev. Dr. MacRae, pastor of the  Presbyterian church, will not be able  to return home for another two weeks-.  He has been arranging for the establishment of a boarding school at Calgary and has met with great success.  Similar school may also be established  in this province. These schools will  be under the auspices of the Presbyterian church. Rev. Dr. Herdman, the  superintendent of missions in the west,  is anxious that Dr. MacRae should  attend the meetings of the synod and  general assembly at Vancouver, and  explain the objects of and benefits to  be derived from the establishment of  these schools. Dr. MacRae has arranged that Rev. Mr. Kellogg, a son  of the late Rev. Dr. Kellogg of St.  James' Square Presbyterian church,  Toronto, will occupy the Presbyterian  pulpit here next Sunday and the Sunday following.  Granby Mines .'-.   Mother Lode   B. C.

AT   LAST  It is said that children cry for  Castoria; some children cry after they  get Castoria; but it is surely because  they are children and not from any  lack of virtue in the panacea.  The people of British Columbia proclaimed their belief that the only  method of securing responsible government was by the adoption of party  lines. A straight conservative government has been formed, and it is surely  the height of folly to cry now.  There were circumstances surrounding the calling of Richard McBride to  the premiership and the formation of  his cabinet that are open to criticism,  but these are. matters for the stump.  If there was treachery, if base ingratitude was shown, and if personal  ambitions have been thwarted, they  reflect on Mr. McBride and the patty  of which he is now leader and cannot  in any way prejudice the standing of  the liberal party with the people.  The great desideratum has been  secured; party government has been  established. It is a waste of time to  now quarrel with the incidents leading  up to the desired end. In every great  political crisis there are always details  that the hypercritical can find fault  with. But the people at such a time  looked to results and paid little  heed to the whining of the disappointed.  What they want are fighters���men  who will face the situation as they  find it and never flinch when their  opponents get an aOvantage.  It is quite true that theconsetvatives  have come out of the late embroglio  with a decided political .advantage  over their opponents. In these practical days it means much to have control of the reins of government and  the patronage.of the province. Speak  ing for ourselves, and ourselves only,  we are glad that the liberals are culled  upon to take the offensive side of the  battle. Read British history, read  ��� Can ad i an_ h is tor y an d j t wi 11 ._bei_.iaa nd  that the liberal party were always  marching upon the entrenchments  of the enemy and fighting unitedly for  a great cause in the interests of the  people. Had a liberal Lieutenant  Governor called upon a liberal to organize a government there would have  been a howl of pai tizanship raised;  there would have been further  intriguing and the desired end iu all  probability would have been frustrated.  Liberals should, and we believe will,  take   their   medicine   like ,-men,   aa^'  make the best of the situation.      ','  After all something was needed to  unite the liberal party in this province.  In the past in provincial matters they  have been active in fighting themselves  and slow in fighting their opponents.  There can be no excuse now for further internal bickering. They have  now a duty to perform���a duty to  themselves, to the great liberal party  of this Dominion, and above all a duty  to this misgoverned province. When  the battle conies, and it must come  quickly, the liberals should have for  their ammunition the very best policy  that the best and most experienced  minds in the party can evolve and  should have ro discord or dissensions  within their ranks.  History will repeat itself. British  Columbia will secure the highest type  of good government when the electors  return the liberals to power. That is  the destiny of the liberal party. That  carries with it a great responsibility.  It is no time to whine about what  might have been; it is time to fight.  The liberals of British Columbia are  built of different stuff from those who  struggled and won through all the  great battles that secured f'.r this  dominion the most perfect form of responsible government if they do not  now unite to give British Columbia  what is its greatest need���good  government.  Since the above was written Mr.  Martin has tendered his resignation as  leader to the executive of- the Provincial Liberal Association. In doing so  Mr. Martin has shown that he is willing to sacrifice personal ambitions iu  the interests of the party. His resignation was accepted. Mr. Martin's  action will do much towards uniting  the party in this province.  OUNDARV   CREEK   TIMES  Board of Trade  Business Transacted at the  Regular  Meetinsr, Wednesday  The regular meeting of the Greenwood board of trade was held on Wednesday afternoon with President  Mytton in the chair. W. G. Gaunce  acted as secretary. Communications  were received from the passenger  agents of the C. P. R., Great Northern,  aud Northern Pacific in reply to letters  sent by the board urging that more attention be given to tourist traffic  throughout the Kootenays.  Premier Prior and Smith Curtis,  M. P. P., acknowledge receipt of communications referring to the creation  of a new assessment district.  The New Westminster board of trade  asked the co-operation of the Greenwood board in securing radical reform?,  in "the "present-- cost���of ���litigation. -  Litigation is now so expensive and  there are so many opportunities for  costly delays that only the rich can  indulge in the luxury, and the poor  man with a good case often hesitates  before entering suit.

Court of Revision  The municipal council sat Monday  morning and evening as a court of  revision and equalization. The complaints were few. IT. W. Hart,  Phoenix; J. B. Cameron, Wallace,  Idaho; Matie Dean, Kaslo, and one or  two others complained against a too  high valuation, but as the assessed  value of their properties was similar  to that of property in the immcdiale  vicinity, no changes were made.  Property owners should remember that  if the assessed valuation is low, the  rate of taxation must be correspondingly high. A certain amount of  revenue has to be raised to run the  municipality and should the assessed  value of property be reduced it would  mean the imposition of high and  special rates.

Rational care of the teeth and  mouth seeks to free the cavity of  the mouth of all foreign substance.  Tartar must be removed from  time to time. Loose roots and  stumps must be extracted. Decayed teeth must be filled, or  treated and filled; or extracted.  Artificial substitutes must be  inserted in place of natural teeth  which have been lost.  The sooner a diseased tooth is  treated the more rapidly, painlessly, and cheaper can it be rilled  For this reason teeth should be  thoroughly examined at least  twice a year.  Jt is money well spent to have  diseased roots and such as are  still firmly implanted filled, and,  where necessary, provided with  artificial crowns.  DR. MATHISON  DENTIST  Naden-Flood Mock.

John Houston, chairman of the  Conservative association executive, today declared that the action of the  Liberals was the most rational yet  laUen. What is the sense, he said, of  a convention declaring- some man  leader who may not be in the next  house, and pledging the support of  candidates to him ?  Conservatives here seem to repudiate  McBride in his new role, and the Colonist sharply lectures him and appeals  to his partly loyalty to s-*.ani'. out of  the way.  Ac the house sitting this afternoon,  Tatlow reported for the special committee, approving the o'iginal estimates in the main but recommending  retrenchment in carrying them out.  The estimates were passed.  Hon. R. McBride partially completed  his cabinet tonight. He retains the  post of chief commissioner of Lands'  and Works. R. G.

BOUN >AY CREE5K   TIMES  PageS  PARTY LINES  AT LAST  Richard McBride Forms a  Tory Government  II  An Early   Appeal to  the   ��Iectois  Will Follow.  Victoria, June, 2.���The party line  line issue iu British Columbia politics  is at Jas.t clearly drawn.  Today Richard McBride, who yesterday was leader- of his majesty's opposition in the house, is no longer at  the head of that body. He has dissolved his following-, and will seek  support from those with whom he is  associated in Dominion political  affairs.  The outcome was not unexpected.  After the rising- of the house yesterday  afternoon, certain members of the McBride party indicated that their vote  in favor of adjournment would be reversed today unless McBride formed a  straight Conservative, government. It  then became patent that at the opposition caucus to, be held last night a  determined effort would be made to  foJce that view on the party.  Events proved that what many predicted would happen actually took  place. The majority of the opposition  were agreed in the opinion that the  party which had won the fight, and  whose leader had logically been sent  for, by his honor to assume the control  of affairs, should commonly participate  in the fruits of that victory. At the  same time due recognition was accorded to the clamor throughout the country for party lines, and the opinion of  some of the members seemed to be  that to go to the country on any other  basis would be.to, invite defeat.  Finding this sentiment prevailing,  the L/iberal members gracefully ac  cepted the situation and intimated, that  after what had been expressed they  could only, lose in dignity by consenting to serve longer in their old relation, No vote, so.it is stated, was taken  but the situation.was tacitly accepted  by all.present.  At a late hour last night McBride announced:that he had decided to form a  government on party lines. It would  be a Conservative ministry, and he  would attempt, if possible, to pass  supply in the house.  This morning Tatlow was sworn in  as president of the council.  The new premier, realizing the debt  heLowesLtQ:_the Jarge.Jc^lQwjng^pf^l/ibr  erals who have assisted very maceri-  ally in placing him in the position he  today occupies, says he is prepared to  deal fairly with them. In the supply  which is proposed to. be voted, he wants  no unfair advantage to be taken. He  is satisfied that the estimates to be presented for consideration of the house  to cover necessities of the time intervening before the netf house can be  called together, should be fairly distributed.  In line with this idea, a committee of  theJiQ.use, composed of five from each  side, were,asked this morning- hv McBride to undertake a n.\. . . ^f the  estimates, and tp consider any items  which might be of a contentious  character. This committee went to  work, and cansisted of Semlin, Paterson, Tatlow, Fulton and Kidd, for the  old opposition, Clifford, Houston, Mclnnes, Hall and Ellison for the old  government party.  The step which has been taken has  caused a good deal of bitterness. Conservatives regard this step of the opposition leader as rather sharp practice  on his part in supplanting the recognized head of the party, and in response to a telegram Charles Wilson,  the leader, came down from the main-  latid last night. Houston, of Nelson,  chairman of the Conservative executive, is a gentleman who is supposed  to accurately represent the views of  the party. Houston looks very much  askance at the new chief, and if any  one wants to make the Nelson leg is  lator warm he need only ask him his  opinion of the probable outcome for  the Conservative party in the Kooten-  ays with its, aggregation of dismissed  and discredited chiefs and its new  leader.  Among   Liberals  there  is a disposition to accept the situation philosophi  cally. Men like Munroe, Oliver and  Paterson are recognized as heavyweights of the old opposition party,  and without their prestige much of  what has been accomplished could not  have taken place. It is probable that  the disintegration of the party would  have come sooner had not Mr. McBride  repudiated as an error and a slip of the  tongue, on the day of the defeat of the  Prior government, a statement that he  favored an appeal to the country at  once on party lines.  Smith Curtis, on the other hand,  warmly approves the position Mr. .McBride has taken.  On every hand Liberals are insisting that the party must 'now be got together, its differences healed and a  united front presented for the approaching fight.  The slate of min sters which McBride  will ultimately submit to his honor was  stated by one pf his closest friends this  morning to be as follows:  Premier and chief commissioner of  lands and works, R McBride; minister  of finance, R. G. Tatlow; attorney  general, Charles Wilson; minister of  mines, R. F. Green; provincial secretary, J. F. Fulton; president of the  executive council, A. E. McPhillips.  R. E. Gosnell will continue to act as  the premier's private secretary.  Victoria, June 3���The resignation  of the laberal lea.dersh.ip by Joseph  Martin at the meeting of the provincial executive in Vancouver today has  enormously increased the prospects, of  victory for that party at the next election. There is now a disposition on  the part of the Liberals on all sides to  accept the decision of the executive  not to hold a convention but to allow a  committee to arrange the campaign  and allow the members of the next  house to. select their own leader.

Derosier situated near the brow of the  hill almost opposite the C. P. R. railway station was completely destroyed  by fire on Wednesday evening. The  cause was a defective tttte. The tire  broke out through the roof about ten  o'clock at night. When Mr. Derosier  noticed the bla?.e the roof was a mass  of flames. There were no facilities for  extinguishing- the blaze and Mr. Der  osier turned his attention to saving the  furniture. But few people in the city  noticed the fire. J. R. Brown and one  or two others went up and helped to  remove the furniture to a place of  safety.  The loss is fully S2.000. Tqe house  cost S1,S00 and besides stables and out  houses were destroyed. There was  only SSOO insurance.  The estimates, supplimentary estimates were passed yesterday and the  ^legislature prorogued. Among the  votes passed was one of S7,000 lo complete the West Fork road. The other  estimates for this district were passed  as brought down about a month ago.  HIGHLY  PLEASED  Granby   Directors  Inspect  Company's   Mines.  mi rai mm  On the Athelston  Mine, Situated in  Wellinton Camp  Phoenix, June 3.���A party of leading authorities in the copper industry  of the North American continent, accompanied president S. H. C. Miner  to day on an inspection of the Granby  mines in this camp.  Included in the party were John  Stanton, the noted copper statistician  and president of the five large companies operating in the lake section of  Michigan; Clement S. Houghton,  capitalist, of Boston; A. L. White, of  New York; J.~~B. Francis Herreshoff,  vice-president of the Nichols Chemical  Co., of New York; which refines all the  copper produced in British Columbia;  W. A. Paine, of Boston, largely interested in the Michigan copper mines,  and Geo. Martin Luther, general manager of the Nichols Chemical Co., and  the General Chemical Co., all of whom  are Granby directors. With these  were general manager Graves, H. N.  Galer, A. C. Flumerfelt and A. B W.  Hodges, smelter manager, all of the  Granby Co.  The party thoroughly inspected the  company's property both above and  below ground and expressed themselves  as most highly pleased with the  general plan of development and the  bright prospects of the properties.  They left today for Butte, via Spokane  and Grand Forks, travelling in their  own special Pullman palace car, the  Lucania.  Operations are being resumed on the  Athelstan mine, one of the well-known  properties of Wellington camp. David  Oxley, foreman when the property  ceased operations a couple of years  ago, has been ordered by the management to secure a force of men and start  work at once.  The Athelstan is owned by the Athelstan Gold & Copper Mining company,  Limited, and has a capital of $50,000,  the officers being James Anderson,  president; John Mack, vice-president,  and- W. J. Morrison, secretary-treasurer. In 1900 it shipped about 1200  tons of ore, largely to ihe Gratiby  smelter, and in the fore part of 1901  about 550 tons were shipped to the  Boundary Falls smelter, afterwards  "acquired'by" the"Suriset"miiieownersv  It is understood that an arrangement  has now been made with the Sunset  smelter to treat the ore at low figures,  it being specially desirable for mixing  with other ores as a flux.  Last winter the announcement was  made that the Athelstan company had  disposed of its property to the owners  of the Morrison mine, whifh is located  n Deadwood camp, and which is preparing to ship to the Sunset smelter on  a considerable scale. This deal, however, was not finally carried through,  it appears, and the property will now  be worked by the company itself, and  the ore sent to the smelter on Boundary  creek.  The total development work on the  Athelstan consists of about 450 lineal  feet, which includes two shafts, 60 and  70 feet deep, respectively. The ore is  an arsenical iron, the chief value being  gold with a little silver. The mine is  directly ou the Phoenix-Grand Forks  wagon road, and distant from the end  of tbe Winnipeg mine spur about a  mile, whence the ore is sent out to the  smelters. The Athelstan will be the  first of the three prominent shipping  mines in Wellington camp to resume  operations.  J. P. Flood is spending a few days  in the city.  Curtis Acts  Victoria, June 5.��� [Special to The  Times.]���Smith Curtis has requested  the government to enforce the penalty  of $2 per ton on the shortage of coke to  Boundary smelters, according to the  ;igreement with the Crow's Nest  Southern railway. R. F. Green,  minister of mines, will investigate  immediately.  Officers Elected.  IP!m\ AW-PAHI FiPi  Last Tuesday evening the following  officers were elected by Boundary  Valley Lodge, I. O. O.
