 u  d  ''   Vol. 10  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, MAY K>,. l%2.  No.-3fc  ���.3^,  <k  Rich New Strike in the Sunset Group and Mother Lode ��� ��� Development of High  Grade Properties ��� ��� The New Furnace ��� *> Negotiations for the Butcher Boy,  Granby Company Gets a Big Crusher ��� ��� Riverside Again Bonded,  William M. Brewer, M. E., a well  known mining' engineer and special  commissioner in.Bxitish 'Columbia for  the New York Engineering and Mining Journal vitited the Boundary district in March last. After carefully  examining the workings in the Sunset  group he 'decided ' tliat in bis opinion  the property of Montreal '& Boston  Copper Company, Limited,' consisting  of the Sunset, Crown Silver," C. O. D.,  aud Florence Fraction mineral claims  ia capable of furniihing about 400 tons  of/ore-per day of sufficiently high  grade to yield a satisfactory profit on  Operations on this scale. -This opinion  la based oni the' assumption that an  equally low cost for smelting can be  attained as isbeiagdone at the Greenwood and Grand Forks smelters at the  present time, and that the market  price of metals 'does not fall below a  reasonable figure. > '  *lThere are approximately 250,000 tons  of ore in the main ore body on the  Sunset mine above the 100-foot level  and about the same quantity I learn  from tbe manager of the Crown Silver.  ' Ol the richer ore body the tonnage in  - sight could not be estimated because  exploratory work has not been carried  far enough.' - The   cost   for   mining  should  not exceed  80 cents per ton,  ���uiking  allowance   within this limit  _ for development work proposed to be  , carried on by the management. - This  cast if the ore bodies'develop as the indications  promise,   should  be in the  future  somewhat   reduced.     With   a  - smelting and freight cost of less than  - $2 per ton which'the writer is informed  - is the actual cost to day at the Green-  -wood amelter referred to, it can readily  be seen that a very low ore can be profitably mined and Ueated."  Since Mr. Brewer's visit, development work haa been continued- on the  Sunset and Crown Silver under the  capable superintendence of Capt. Johns  that to-day this opinion, would have  to be materially changed. In addition  to other- work, a drift was run from  the Snnset at the 300-foot level to the  "Crown ailvefT" About" 800"feet distant  from the Sunset working shaft and on  the Crown Silver ground this drift en-  .countered a body of high grade gold-  copper ore^-a body similar to the.rich  ore already discovered in the underground working's of the Sunset. The  whole face of the drift is in ore of excellent high grade samples of which  ' will run as high aB $20 in gold and 20  per cent in copper.' The .ore was encountered in this drift and Capt. Johns  U preparing to cross cut the ledge to  determine its size.  When it is considered that, the body  of ore was encountered in the 300-foot  level, the discovery is an important  one, demonstrating that all the ore of  the Sunset is not low grade, and that  - with quantities of this high grade ore  a high average value can be maintained for the entire output of the mine.  BUTCHER BOY-  Butcher Boy accompanied them up the  West Fork.��� -/  The Butcher Boy adjoing the Carmi  and has similar ledges. Considerable  development work has been done on  the property by Messrs. Dale and Kerr  the owners, - opening up well defined  ledges of high-grade ore. During the  past winter" about 100 tons of high  grade ore was placed on the dump to  be hauled byteajus to the local smelter  but unfortunately sleighing did not  materialize - and no shipments were  made.  Should the present negotiations be  carried.out a large forcft of men will be  employed on the property.  THE GOLD FINCH  ��� _Jam.es Sutherland aud Phil McDonald are sinking a shaft on the Gold  Finch ledge. The shaft is down about  20 feet and several tons of high grade  ora, is now on the dump. It will be  shipped to the Trail smelter, As the ore  runs about $100 to the ton, it is expected that the proceeds from the ore  shipped will pay the cost of development and give a handsome balance to  those working the property.  GOLDEN CROWN  W. J. Porter one of the principal  shareholders of the Golden Crown  property in Wellington" camp, was in  the City this week' Thework on the  Golden Crown was temporarily discontinued last week. Tlie' Company is  now on an assessable basis and a. large  amount of work was carried out, and  some shipments were made during the  winter. The property is looking well  -and it is probable that work on the  property will be resumed at an early  date.  BIG CRUSHER FOB GRANBY  J. E. Argo, Spokane, H. M. Gilchrist,  Davenport,Iowa, and J. Edgar Black,  Atlanta, Georgia,.left on Tuesday for  the West Fork country. They drove  to West Bridge and took: saddle horses  fromthcre. The object of the trip is  to examine the Butcher Boy with a  view to bonding. Messrs. G ilehrist  and Black are big wire manufacturers  and Mr. Argo handles their goods in  the west. In previous years Mr. Argp  aucceeded in interesting wealthy wire  men in western mining investments  which turned, out well and they are  now looking for further investments.  During business trips, here Mr. Argo's  attention wa& called to the Butcher Boy  and he succeeded in inducing his principles to visit the. property. James  Vast, J. P. one of tbe owners ofthe  R. P. Williams, resident agent for  the Jenckes- Machine Company this  week sold -to- the- Grasiby-Compa'ny a  4-2 x 30 ore crusher with a capacity of  ISO tons an hour. To drive this big  piece of machinery a 100 horse power  motor lias been purchased from the  Canadian General-Electric Company of  Peterborough, Ont. The crusher  weighs 98.000 pounds, and is by far the  largest crushing plant ever delivered  in this Province. Mj. Williams has  also sold the Jewel Mines Ltd. a  Knowles pump which will bejLised in  taking the water from Eowe's shaft,  where mining operations will be resumed. Shipments from the Jewel  have been retarded", by impassable  roads.  REPUBLIC ORES  Mr Cerar the ore sampler for the  Montreal. & Boston Codper Company  Ltd spent last week in Republic sam-  pleing the ores of that Camp. As soon  as transportation facilities are provided  the Montreal & Boston Copper Company will be; in a position to handle  large quantities of Republic ores at  their Boundary Falls smelter. The  Sunset ores wiLl stanfi more of the  silicious Republic oresi than possibly  any other ores in the district in the  making of a proper blend at the smelter.' Until the V. V. & E.is completed  to Greenwood, 'Republic ores will be  handled by the Hot air line to Columbia and from there by the C. P. R.  to the Boundary Falls smelter, but by  this'faLl the V. V. & E. will be completed (from. Curlew to Greenwood, so"  that there will be a direct route from  Republic to the smelters here. The  Montreal&Boston Company intend to  treat all the custom ores that are  offered and the outlook is so encouraging -that in all probability work on a  second furnace will be ccinmen-ced at  an early date.  NEW .HOTEL  AT THE MOTHER LODE  Another big body of ore has been ex-1  posed on the Mother Lode. On the  North East-corner on the hill above the  workings, tne ore has been stripped for  over 50 feet, a quarry will 1>e started  here and the ore shipped from the  surface,  The new furnace at the smelter has  been running since last Saturday with.  out a hitch. It has kept up the high  average of treatment for the smelter.  The old furnace is undergoing some  cleaning and repairs, having been in  continuous operation for over 15  months. As soon as it is agM.in in  shape, it will be started and the capacity of the sinclter will be incieased to  over 800 tons a day. This will of  course mean the employment of additional men and an increase in the pay  roll of the City.  Riversi  A. A.' Munroe of  Montreal and associates  have secured a nine  month's working bond  on the Riverside group  near Rock Creek. The  group comprises the ���  Riverside, Eninieline and  Badger Fraction. Five  thousand ��� dollars has  been experided~in"devel-"  opment work. A car  load of ore shipped^to  the O-ranby smelter netted $31 a ton and a car  load to the Boundary"  Falls smelter netted $41  per ton. There are over  1500 tons of high grade  ore blocked out in the  mine. Work will be  continued on the property under, the terms of  the bond.  ON A VISIT  Jno. A. McDonald bard arid philosopher of the Mother Lode mine, left  on Monday for Indian a ou a business  visit.. He will return in about six  weeks.  GONE TO SPOKANE  Edward H. Mortimer formerly accountant for the Bealey Investment &  Trust Company has gone toS-pokane  his many Greenwood frieuds will wish  htm every success in his new Held.  Dont forget the grand opening at  Vendorne hotel Anaconda next Tuesday evening.  ON STRIKE  The track laying gang on the V. V.  &E went out oa strike Wednesday  claiming that they had not been paid  for extra time.  J. W. O'Brien has erected a neat  three story hotel at Anaconda. It has  been well and comfortably furnished  throughout, and will be opened next  Tuesday evening with a dance and  supper to which Mr. O'Brien extends  a cordial invitation to all.  A. H. Sperry returned this week from  Spokane, where he met Mrs. Sperry  and family who spent the winter in  California. They have taken a house  in Spokane and will reside there in the  future.

McDougall, manager of the  Ollala company, arrived hrre yesterday  and offers to build the Ver non-Mid way  road also. The government will likely  refuse to entertain- the proposition.  McBride yesterday formally offered to  put through the estimates provided  the reserve on foreshore was retained  and a general election held. The  government including Martinites fear  the electorate.  To sum up the position the Martinites will do anything rather than defeat the government or cause a dissolution. The government will do  anything rather than lose office.  'AN ALL STAR CAST."

Frith, Rec.See  THE GAJUR DAY  Arrangements Perfected for Celebration���Many Visitors are Cominsr.  The Different Events Will te Keenly Contested.  .#   Unless Jubiter Pluvius. should take a  scunner at Greenwood, fully two thousand visitors will be here on Victoria  day. There are at least 000 coming  from Grand Forks, an equal number  from Phoenix and the various mining  camps, and the Kootenay will easily  make up the total. Superintendent  Dowuie^and trainmaster Lawrence of  the Columbia & Western were here this  week and arranged with the Celebration committee for the necessary cars  to handle the big crowds that are  coming. The C P. R. was never so  short on rolling stcck, but at least  iwelve cars will be provided for the  Greenwood excursion as it is expected  that fully that number will be needed  to carry the pleasure seekers. The excursion train will leave Cascade at 7.30  on Monday morning and then reach  here at 9.20. It will connect at Eholt  with the Phoenix train, and from here  will proceed to Midway to accommodate  those who may wish to spend the day  quietly there. The train will return  late Saturday evening.  Probably the most exciting event of  the celebration will be the firemen's  races.- Five teams have entered; The  War Eagle ���Center Star team of Rossland, The Grand Forks, Phoenix,  Republic,and Greenwood teams will all  strive for first place. The Greenwood  team is fast aud sure and will certainly  make the. visitors struggle to get any  of the prizes. There will be a baseball  tournament,   with the Chesaw, ��� Grand  Forks and Greenwood teams entered,  and more to follow.  The horse racing will take place at  nine o'clock in the mcrning on the race  track. Some outside horses arc coming  and several local horses will b�� entered.  A race that will test wind and muscle  is the one to the top of Jubilee mountain. The grade is about 45 per cent  and the distance about a mile. It is  needless to say that this is not intended  for a fat man's race.  In consideration of the fact that  there will be more visitors here this  year than any previous year, the  committee are anxious that business  men and others should in;ike a special  effort to give the City a holiday appearance. There are several handsome  blocks in the city that afford plenty of  scope for the decorator's handiwork  and it is hoped that no effort will be  spared in making the city pleasant to  look upon.  The big Grand Forks delegation arc  bringing over the Citizens band. They  have an excellent band in the gateway  City, aud as Greenwood always freely  patronized Grand Forks celebrations  the citizens are reciprocating by coming themselves and unsolicited are  bringing their band with them. This  expiession of good feeling will certainly be reciprocated by Greenwood. The  committee has been hard at work and  every thing is in ship shape for a big  successful celebration.

SUBSCRIPTIONS IN ADVANCE.  Pkh Yeak S2 00  Six Mounts  125  To I'ORICIGN COUNTKIKS  2 50  FRIDAY, MAY 16,   Wo-  "VOICE OF KNOWLEDGE"  It would be difficult to over-estimate  the importance of Dr. L,edoux's statements regarding the ores of. the  Boundary. In a carefully prepared  paper excerpts from which are given  elsewhere in this issue, lie speaks with  the voice of an intimate knowledge  gathered by personal observation  under the most advantageous conditions. During his visit here,'. Dr.  Ledoux was given the freedom of the  Granby and Mother Lode mines and  the smelters. He and his firm -have  the highest standing and the companies interested had every assurance  that the knowledge thus acquired  would not be misused. The result is a  definite announcement from a disinter-  -ested expert regarding the facts of the  mining situation in the Boundary.  Dr. Ledoux's is practically the first  authoritative statement of this nature  made by an expert. The owners of  properties have told of the values, the  cost of treatment arid the quantities of  ore in sight; others have indulged in  glittering generalities but Dr. L,edoux  deals with facts. His conclusions cannot be considered other than encouraging. The pessimist who sees blue  ruin in every drift and every ore dump  should read and digest Dr. kedoux's  statements. He will find that even  with the present price of copper there  is still every encouragement for the  operation of low grade mines.  . Dr. Ledoux does not deal in the  future he simply describes things as  he found them. Since he was here  arrangements have been made under  ���which the ore can be mined, hauled to  smelters and treated cheaper. The  "'"quarrying'of oreis'being-'conducted'bh  a larger scale, the cost of transportation has been reduced, the price of  coke has been slightly reduced and still  further reductions will be made as  soon as the Crow's Nest Southern railway is completed and the Great Northern is extended to the Boundary  smelters. Then the increased production of the smelters and the establishment of a bessemerizitig]| plant at  the Granby smelters adds to the margin of profit.  Taking all these things into consideration, the outlook for the Boundary was never brighter. Dr. Ledoux's  statements are indubitable iu so far as  they describe conditions as lie saw  them, but when he next visits Boundary he will find that the managements  of the big mines and the big smelters  have taken measures that still further  reduce the cost and add to the margin  of profit. It is peculiarly gratifying  that this has been done without disturbing the wages of the employes.  ing of'fruit and garden truck and will  find a ready market in the mining  towns of the Boundary. The best immigration agent is a contented man.  He can do more to induce his friends  at his old home to take chances in the  new than tons of" immigration literature. There is no good reason why  men on small farms in the valleys of  British Columbia near the mining  towns should not prosper. TheTland is  rich, the climate cannot be surpassed  and the market is a ready and steady  one. Under such a" combination of  favorable conditions, it is reasonable  to suppose that those who have possessed themselves of pieces of the earth  are but advance agents of a large  number who will come here and cultivate arable lands that are now lying  idle.  The Canadian Pacific Railway company is not slow to take advantage of  an original idea when it is likely to  bring business to the railway. Recently Sir Thos. Shaugnessy the president of the C. P. R. purchased the  Barclay ranch on Trout creek near  the Okanagan I^ake. This is a splendid property which will at once be  divided into small fruit farms. The  Okanagan: is famous for its fruit, and  it is likely the small farms will be  eagerly purchased. The C. P. R. will  also erect a fine hotel at this point on  the Okanagan E/ake.  There is no good reasoa why the  fertile valleys and benches nearer  Greenwood should not be similarly  taken up and cultivated. The immi-  -gration westward was never greater  than this year. Thousands are coming  to the Northwest and the State of  Washington. Many of the experienced farmers of the east would be only  too glad to secure land in the vicinity  of a prosperous, mining town like  Greenwood if they only knew that such  land is available and that there is such  an excellent market for farm and  horticultural produce.  AN EXCELLENT NUMBER!'  '���SMALL HOLDINGS."  "Own a piece of the earth" Percy  Godenrath's happy phrase, is making  almost as great a hit in the east as  Horace Greely's famous advice to  young men to go west. During his  mission east last winter he succeeded  in inducing several families to buy  small holdings in the Kettle River  valley.   They will engage in the rais-  The facile pen. of E. Jacobs has  prominently brought the resources and  the~industeries:of W  to the front in the May number of the  British Columbia Mining review published at Victoria B. C. The whole  number was placed at the disposal of  Mr. Jacobs who made good use of its  fifty pages in describing the mines,  smelters, towns and all the industrial  institutions of the district. Careful of  the facts and interesting in his descriptions- Mr. Jacobs' work will certainly go far towards convincing the  readers of the Record that this is the  most important copper producing district in the Province. It would be an  injustice to attempt to detail the  numerous matters described by Mr.  Jacobs. We can only recommend that  those havingau interest in the Boundary or who are anxious to make its resources more generally known, would  secure copies of the Mining Record  and distribute them freely.  The illustrations prepared by the  British Columbia Photo Engraving  Company of Victoria reflect the greatest credit upon the artistic workmanship of that institution. They include  several familar faces and scenes,  notably those of Fredrick Keffer M. E.  Paul Johnson M. E. J. W. Astley  M. . E. S. P. Parrish M. E. A. W.  Hodges, W. G. McMynn, Harry Johnfe  Jolly Jack and others, also views of the  various mines and mining camps of the  district. The issue has also an interesting description of early days, by  Captain PhilipsrWolley.  (  "With  the   return   of   Editor Ro.-j?,  Greenwood will be re-discovered arid  heard from in no undecided manner"  says the Grand Porks News. Thanks  for the compliment Mr. News but you  are somewhat mistaken about Greenr  wood. It never was a discovery and  consequently could not be re-discovered. Greenwood is a natural growth,  not a hot house nor a hot air one. Being  the natural mining, smelting, commercial and financial centre of the  Boundary district it simply grew to b��  the most important town in the district. It will continue to grow and  hold tliis position without the aid of  boastful words audjdoubtful measures.

The outlook as,.indicated by Dr Led-  oux. is not a! discouraging one by any  means  and  there   is   the further en-  couragment that since his article  was  written both the Grantfy and theB. C.  '   Copper have introduced, methods that  will insure the" immrigfbf ore at ~�� still  lower figure than that quoted by Dr.  Ledoux.   The   result   is   that the percentage of profit at the present prtce of  /  copper is higher than that given by  i   Dr.   L,edoux,~or <copper' can- still go  lower and leave a* margin of profit for  those operating in the mines,   _ ,  Drrkedoux says in part: t -  There liave been numerous published  ,' guesses at the grade of theseBoundaxy  creek ores, and after all  this  is ^the  vital point on which the others depend.  On  the north side of the Phoenix ravine1- (which   includes 'the "Dominion  Copper Company's-properties and the  SnoV"Shoe), the-lafge amount of ore  developed is estimated to run abontl. 8  per cent in copper, $2. -40 in gold.amd  25 cents in silver.  (With copper at 11   3-4 cents",   that  - gives 'a gross assay  value of $6. 88"a  ton).  ^ "The-workable ores from the south  aide of the Phoenix ravine (which includes the properties of the Gra.nby  Company) contain on an average Cop  per, 1.7 per cent; gold, SI ,60, and  silver, 33 cents per ton.  (with copper at 11 3-4c, that gives the  total values of $5.93 a ton )  IN GREEKW0OD CAMP  "The ore from the easterly side of  the main dyke,  as represented .by the  Snow Shoe,  the Gold Drop and others,  probably- runs by the carload as shipped, about 1.6 per cent copperj 81.50 in  .   .gold and .30. cents in silvar.
