C  TO REINCORPORATE  Put tlie Wisconsin Mines, Inc., on an  Assessable Plan.  A. H. STEELE GOING TO SPOKANE  Wisconsin Adjoins the War Eaele. Which  Is  Showing Up Well-Chesaw Is  Prosperous.  Superintendent A. H. Steele, of the  Wisconsin mines, incorporated, arrived in the city yesterday from Chesaw. He is on his way to Spokane to  meet the directors of the company to  talk over a proposition that is now on  foot to re-incorporate the Wisconsin  mines under an assessable plan.  When seen last night by a Times representative at the Hotel Armstrong,  Mr. Steele said he had no definite  hews for publication. He said that he  had been in correspondence with the  company and hoped that some agreement may be made to obtain sufficient  funds to resume the development of  the property, which had been shut off,  for the lack of, same, since the end of  last year. ' ;. .  RICH vWAE. EAGLE.  Speaking of the Myers Creek camp  and trie development now going on, he  cold the redorter that there was considerable prospecting and assessment  work being done on a number of claims  over there. On the War Eagle, which  sidelines to the west with the Wisconsin claims, he, reports that the ore being crosscut at the 100-foot level was  rich. It is a quartz, carrying considerable galena. The gold values  being found in the lead. Values were  had from $5 up to the thousands.  The development of the War Eagle is  making the Wisconsin a valuable piece  of -property. The War Eagle shaft  was sunk Only ��� 75 feet from the west  side line of the Wisconsin. It is down  100 feet, in a limey quartz ore. At this  depth a crosscut was run northwest for  .10 feet, but went put of the-ore. 7-Thea  the miners'started a crosscut, practically due east towards 'the Wisconsin  ground. It is now in 35 feet, with a  splendid showing. Mr. Steele is -*"���' ��he  opinion; that. the apex of the ledge is  on the 1 Hack Hawk claim, the south  extension of the Wisconsin, and owned  by his company. From the develop-  ment.of the War Eagle every indication would point to the fact that the  Wisconsin aiso has the ledge.  CHESAW   GROWING.  Mr. Steele has just completed his assessments on the Helen group, on the  west slope of Percy mountain, and on  the Alta, a claim lying to the east of  the Wisconsin. -He reports that both  properties have good ore bodies and  promise weil on further development.  Chesaw,. he says, still continues to  grow. There, is a large amount of  building going ori in that lively burg,  and the coming spring, with the opening of the north half of the Colville  Indian reservation to homestead settle-  , F.

The  Wiarton is owned by a Spokane company in which C. D. .Rand, the well  known mining broker, is a large owner  and was the chief promoter. Considerable of the stock is held in Ontario.  The Fontenoy is largely controlled by  the Dunsmuirs of Victoria. It is" just  about a year since Dr. J. F. Reddy of  Spokane secured the claim from  Hughie Cameron and turned it over to  the Fontenoy company. The Waterloo, the only one of the three properties now being developed, is also  owned by a Spokane company. The  stock is widely scattered* Whether  the originators of the idea will be  able to accomplish the object of an  amalgamation it is difficult to say; the  hardest part would be the gathering in  of the different interests which are  already widely scattered. One big  company, backed by ample capital,  would in short order place the group  on a dividend-paying basis.  THE LONE STAR COMPANY  A SUCCESSFUL PROMOTION  The promotion of the Lone Star Mining company has been most successful.  Thomas McDonnell, of the firm of  McEntire, McDonnell & Co., today informed the Times that already 100,000  shares of promoter's shares had been  placed in this city alone at 1% cents  per share. The capitalization of the  proposed company will be about  3250,000, in 1,000,000 shares at the par  lue of 25 cents per share. Of this  number of shares 200,000 will be set  apart for treasury purposes.  WILL CLOSE DOWN  The Waterloo Not Crushin* for Want  of Water.  STILL     ANOTHER     GOLD     BRICK  Broueht Down t>y Superintendent   Graham���  Motes of the Development Going  on in Camp.  Thomas Graham, superintendent of  the Waterloo mine, in Camp McKinney,  arrived in the city on yesterday afternoon's stage. He brought down with  him a small gold brick, the clean-up of  less than a week's run. The mill has  stopped crushing ore as the water  ditches have frozen up solid. Superintendent Graham reports extreme cold  weather in camp, it having been down  to 21 degrees below zero. Until the  weather moderates the mill will be  idle.        y]  CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT.  This, however,' has not prevented continuing the development of the Waterloo. The  west drift on the 65-foot level is in 260  feet, with a full breast of ore, there is  yet 95 feet of drifting to be done to get  at a point under the old No. 1 shaft.  Here they are 120 feet below the collar  of the shaft. This shaft was sunk  57 feet, so that it will require  63 feet of a raise to make the  connection. As has already been told  in the Times, it ip, the intention of the  management to make this their main  working shaft. This will give ample  space for dumping ground and building ore bins. A new tramway will  also be constructed to carry the ore to  the mill, a. distance' of 300 feet. As  soon as this work is completed the  shaft would be continued on down and  other levels opened up.  ON OTHER MINES.  The lO^-stamp mill on the Minnehaha  is working night and day. There is  plenty of ore on hand and in sight to  maintain a7 steady crushing. Mr.  Graham also stated that the Kamloops  ha'd. struck their ledge in .the crosscut.,  at the lOO-foot level. The Sailor has '  also started to crosscut on the 150-foot  level. On the Mammoth the work consists of pushing the tunnel in on the  ledge, they have good ore that averages well. ���*, The Dayton has been the  talk of the camp and from surface indications, which are exceptionally  rich, there is little doubt but that it  will turn out to be a big property. The  superintendent may probably- go to  Spokane in a day or two. He would  not deny or confirm the recent rumor  regarding his company acquiring additional property in the immediate vicinity of the Waterloo.  TELLS OF THE MINES.  Paul Johnson Estimates the Output of the  Boundary.  Paul Johnson is enthusiastic over  the future of Greenwood and the mining "districts���immediately-adjacent,  says the Tribune of Nelson. His enthusiasm is based on the fact that  within nine or ten miles of Greenwood  are the following-named mines: Mother  Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn, Morrison,  Greyhound, Last Chance, Old Ironsides,  Knob Hill, Brooklyn, Stemwinder,  Tamarac, Gold Rock, Ivanhoe, Golden  Crown, Winnipeg, No. 7, City of Paris,  B. C, Oro Donoro, Emma and Jewel.  Many of these mines are now in a position to ship ore to smelters and are  all fairly well developed. Asked for  a conservative estimate of the probable daily output for shipment, Mr.  Johnson replied, that the above named  mines should be shipping one thousand  tons a day before the end of the year.  As every ton of the ore will be treated  at local smelters. British Columbia will  get the full benefit of the 75 per cent  of the value of the ore which will go to  pay the expenses of mining and smelting. This means that S7,5O0 a day will  be distributed in the neighborhood of  Greenwood, or nearly $3,000,000 a year.  This does not seem an extravagent  statement, and the Tribune hopes that  Paul Johnson has called the turn in declaring that Greenwood will be the  largest city in the interior. On returning to Greenwood Mr. Johnson will remain -five or six weeks, when he expects to make a trip to Europe to bring  Mrs. Johnson and the children.  Don't wait until prices of lots advance in DeadwOOl and then be telling  your friends that you could have  bought them at from S100 to $150.  The Dayton, in C.unp McKinney,  will be developed by an incline shaft.  In size it will be 8x4)4 feet in the  clear. The shaft is already down 15  feet, and the standard of the ore appears to be just as rich as found on the  surface. Six men are employed and  nother shift will be put on this week, THE GREENWOOD WiEOEJKLY TIMES.-  (UeeUlv Cimes.  PTBLJSHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Company, Limited.  Duncan Ross Editor.  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1900.  MUNICIPAL, IMPROVEMENTS.  The installation and operation of the  electric lighting plant in this city is a  matter of congratulation. It adds  one more important industry and advances the city one step further in the  municipal improvements march. Good  lighting, wholly apart from its immediate benefits, is one of the best advertisements a city can have. It is a  thing which immediately attracts attention, and the absence of which is  always sure to provoke adverse comment. It should lessen the danger  from fire very considerably by doing  away with many of the coal oil lamps  now being used. It should also increase the efficiency of our local police  and render their duties less difficult, for  crime is always less prevalent in a well  lighted place on the principle that  darkness is a cover for deeds of vior  lence.  The next municipal improvement demanding attention is one which is  already been partly considered and  one which is for the corporation itself  to take in hand rather than in any private citizen or company. We refer to  a sewage system. Only a sanitary  engineer is .competent to say what  system is best adapted for this or any  Other place, but it is, we think, pretty  generally .conceded that for a place  located as this city is, the proper plan  is to adopt the sceptic tank system.  With a growing population the need of  immediate action is imperative. The  coming summer will be an important  one in our history. Railway communication. will result in a constant  influx of people desirous of making  this their home or headquarters, and  one of the first things people consider in looking for a place to settle  is the question of sewerage. There  will be a good deal of building, too,  this year, and it is of the first importance to us all that the new buildings  to be erected should in the first place  be adapted to a sewerage system; Another reason for present action is that  it is easier in a new town to lay out a  proper drainage system than it is in an  old one, and the sooner we undertake  a solution of the problem the cheaper  it will be. Ori the score of economy  threre is a great deal to be said. It  would cost us less to sewer the city  than the expense and loss of one epidemic of typhoid or scarlet fever or  diphtheria. Yet, as things are now, if  any of these dread diseases become  rampant, the situation would be serious.  We do not say this with the view to  creating alarm, but as a matter of duty  to urge the prompt consideration of  the subject.  No matter how soon the local authorities act, it must necessarily be some  "little time "before "the-plans to-be for-,  mulated can be adopted. Under the  Provincial Health Act, the authorities  of every municipal corporation contemplating the adoption of a sewerage  system must submit all plans aud  specifications to the Provincial Board  of Health for approval, and it is declared unlawful for the corporation to  go ahead with the work without having  first obtained a certificate from the  Provincial board. The object of these  provisions is to maintain the water  courses, rivers, lakes and water supplies generally from pollution. In  consequence, when the local authorities  have done their part there will be some  delay waiting for the decision of the  Provincial board, and if steps were  taken at once to do our portion of the  work it is altogether likely that it  would be well towards the autumn  before the undertaking could be completed. This makes it all the more  necessary 1 hat prompt action should be  taken, and we express the hope that  there will be no further delav.  a unanimous court of appeal decided  that the wife could not be compelled to  live with a husband if she did not  wish to, and thus was one of the good  old beliefs cruelly exploded.  And now has come another judicial  decision, also far reaching in its effect  and exploding another cherished idea.  The saintly person of a chief justi-e  of one of Her Majesty's supreme couits  was ridiculously caricatured in a newspaper of which one St. Aubyn was  the local agent, and St. Aubyn, without knowing anything about the libellous matter, distributed several copies  of the paper. The chief justice  thereupon had Mr. St. Aubyn up for  contempt of court and sent him to the  common jail for 14 days. Even after  this summary punishment, the newspaper man had the audacity to appeal  to the judges of the privy council in  England. Their lordships decided  without difficulty that the chief justice  of the lower court was too thin skinned,  that if he had any real troubles he  should "tell them to a policeman" (we  do not quote from the j udgment) or resort to an action at civil law, or take  criminal proceedings for libel just the  same as any ordinary, every day man,  or in other words, that there is no  such special divinity about a judge  that the law will punish a contempt of  his distinguished person by committal  for contempt. It is pointed out that  committal for contempt is a weapon to  be used sparingly "and always with  reference to the administration of justice." In short, that it is the court that  is sacred and not the person of the  judge. And for the first time it" is distinctly laid down as a legal proposition that when a trial has taken  place and a case is over, both jury and  judge are given over to public criticism  as well by the newspapers as by the  public. We may remark upon this as  a distinct gain for civilization.  farmer is not blessed with too much  wealth these days, b it the Tacoma  News thinks differently. It criticises  Speaker Forster for not buying his  gown and suggests that he should buy  his own clothes, as he is the wealthiest  man in the house. He was elected  speaker because of his great wealth.  Such is fame! It required the enterprise of an American newspaper to  turn plain Tom Forster into a bloated  capitalist. ��  THE OTHER SIDE OF WAR.  THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING.  A NEW DEPARTURE.  The hall mark of civilization is beginning to be fairly well impressed  upon the judicial decisions of the highest courts of the land. A few years  ago a curious case arose out of the domestic troubles of a husband and wife  brought about directly by the wife  leaving her lord and master and refusing point blank to return to him.  The husband then attempted to invoke  that ancient doctrine of matrimonial  bliss which makes the " man  of the house" the lawful custodian " of his weaker partner,  allowing him even, in cases of  necessity whereof he was the judge,  to inflict summary chastisement.   But  Canada has now a keener realization  of the terrible effects of war. It was  with feelings of joy that she offered  her sons to the Empire, scarcely appreciating the gravity of her action.  The sacrifice of some of her bravest  sons at Modder river forcibly-reminds  this country that there is something  more in war than an opportunity to  show the extreme loyalty of Canada  towards the mother land. That is the  sweet side of war, but there is^more  bitter than sweet and Canada is beginning to taste the bitter. It will  not dampen the enthusiasm of her  people, nor make them less loyal or devoted to the mother land. There will  be just as many volunteers as ever;  just as many ready to go the front if  needed, but there will be fewer meetings passing resolutions to send 10,000  men as if they were $10,000. The  merit of Canada's act lay in the fact  thai her sons volunteered when the  call came, not in noise made by the  orators at mass meetings.  THE SIM1LKAWIEEN.  J. ..EAL.  J. WA.Tr  Q  I  1   e   ��� ���  ���  EDITORIAL  NOTES.  . Mr. Rudyard Kipling's story under  the above caption has a moral in it  that might have an application to the  case of Mr. Joseph Martin in British  Columbia. Mr. Martin jis undoubtedly  a man of some ability; but his ability  runs in streaks. He has been able to  force his way up to some of the most I  prominent positions in the land; once  near the top of the tree his peculiar  talent for getting- 'himself and all  others connected with him into  trouble begets difficulties which have  invariably resulted in his. complete  downfall. It was so in Manitoba, it  was so in Ottawa, and we know of our  own experience of his career in British  Columbia. If we were asked to define  as nearly as possible the exact cause of  Mr. Martin's failures, we think we  would be coming fairly close to the  mark by saying that he wants to be  the dictator. He is the man who would  be king.' Nothing less will satisfy  him. This is the point at which Mr.  Martin's judgment forsakes him.  Canadians do not want a king. The  people have. a deep-rooted conviction  that the popular government for  which their forefathers fought is  the kind of government they want,  .and the'man who thinks he can ride  roughshod over the people will always  get into trouble. There is, moreover,  no part of Canada, perhaps, where the  people want a king less than they do  in British Columbia. Our people are  freer and and less restrained in  thought and conviction than in some  of the older and more settled parts of  the Dominion. They have ��� ideas of  their own, ambitions for themselves  and their province, and a pride, or  perhaps it is self-conceit which revolts  at the idea of any one or two men  taking them by their noses, as it were,  and leading them around. Therefore,  " the mau who would be king" gets  into trouble, and finds himself like Mr.  Martin has found himself, discredited  by everyone.  If Mr. Joseph Martin's fate "has the  effect of impressing upon others of our  legislators, or would-be legislators, a  lesson along the lines indicated, his  meteoric career in this province  will have at least one good effect. We  may be permitted once more to repeat:  We don't want any king and we won't  have any king. Anyone who wants to  be a king better tackle some of the  tribes in Central India.

The objections to the upper chamber would be  apidly removed if its members were  composed of such men as are qow  being appointed.  Some of the political prophets of the  Coast are slating the genial senior  member for Victoria, Harry Dallas  Helmcken, for the premiership when  the Semlin government shall have been  given its coup de grace. ;Mr. Helmcken  is generally credited with being one of  the shrewdest politicians in the house.

Recently the Tacoma News referred editorially to Thomas Forster, speaker of  the provincial legislature. Mr. Forster  was a coal miner several years ago,  and was satisfied to work underground  for less than S3 a day. He then purchased a little farm on the Fraser  cleared it, got married and settled down  to   a  farmer's  life.   A  Fraser river  It used to be said that "good wine  needs ho bush." That was when advertising was comparatively unknown  and when no one dresmed of competition like that of today. Nowadays  alert merchants depend little upon the  bush (or store sign), but make the desirability of their wares publicly  known by means of daily newspaper  advertisements. The store sign forces  itself upon the ndtice of the few hundreds of passers-by if it be novel and  attractive, but the advertisement engages the attention of thousands of  newspaper readers. Just test the  efficacy of The Times' columns in  reaching the public.  The attention of the mining public  during 1900 is almost sure to be attracted to the remarkable potentialities of the Boundary creek district  The completion of the Columbia &  Western railway and^ the*' building of  spurs into the different mining camps  of the district, have given a greater  impetus to the development of the  gold-copper ore bodies of the locality.  Twenty shipping mines, producing ore  for two local smelters, is a conservative estimate for the present year, but  even if we assume that this number is  not reached, the production of ore is  sure to be great, for few districts have  demonstrated so much in a similar  space of time.���B.

YU  It  ���AS IlAl^EGTIOI  Olalla   Camp,    in    the   Keremeos  Valley. -  NEWS OF THE   MINES   NEAR  BY  Some Large Ore Bodies Being Developed at  Depth���Good Gold and Copper  Values.  "W. C. McDougall, formerly of Columbia and now engaged in mining at  Olalla camp, in the Keremeos valley,  contributes the following interesting  correspondence of the mining resources  in the vicinity of that camp:  Oi.au.a Camp, Feb. 19.���[Special to  The Times] .���As this part of the  Similkameen is likely to become one of  the principal centers of interest during  the coming season, I take the liberty of  sending you a few items relating to  the progress of work hereabouts. I  may here say that this point is the  present center of all the mining development and activity in this district.  On the Bullion Mountain group the  800-foot tunnel, started early in the  winter, is now in 200 feet and over and  pushing along as fast as three shifts  can drive it. This will cut at a depth  of 700 feet the immense outcropping,  from 100 to 200 feet wide, showing near,  the summit of the, mountain, copper  sulphides from which assay up to 27  per cent. The present indications in  this tunnel are excellent. In the  Flagstaff-Searchlight group the tunnel being driven to cut the big  ore/body is now in 50 feet, the rock  through which it is passing being well  charged with copper sulphides of a  promising- character. At the Opulence, Dolphin arid Black Diamond  work was suspended last fall and will  be resumed early in the spring. The  native copper from the Opulence and  the sulphides from the Dolphin are  of particularly fine appearance. The  higli gold values, up to $90 per ton, in  the Dolphin are prominent features.  On the Elkhorn fraction at the base  pf which-this camp is situated, exploring work is being carried on. On the  Surprise-Elkhorn group, preparatory  to active mining operations this  spring. Small bodies of high-grade  ore is frequently met with and there  are strong, indications of larger deposits on this property. The tunnel  on the Copper King .'is 'being: steadily  pushed, and,.judging from the large  and ; promising surface outcrop, will  expose an ore body second to,hone in  this district! The Golconda turiiielis  nowin over. ISO feet and work continues , steadily. I is stated that a  width; of over.50 feet of ledge matter  has already been passed through. All  tljese properties are immediately at  Olalla and tributary to this camp. A  small portion of the townsite has re-  centlj- been surveyed and will shortly  be open for sale. A fine site for a  smelter has been secured; A postoffice  is expected to be shortly opened here.  In the upper Keremeos valley, owing  to difficulty of access, but little is doing  but at the^ Black claim a tunnel is  being driven, which is now in over 50  feet that cutwhat appears to be a tine  ore body. From Twenty-Mile creek  word comes' that the; tunnel on the'  Nickel Plate is being speedily pushed  and is in over 160 feet. A steam drill  outfit for that property recently passed  here.. It is considered certain that the  government will construct the wagon  road between Keremeos and Princeton  ^through^the'Similkameen-valley^duri  ing the coming season. The construction of this road;is a necessity to  accommodate the rush of travel that is  Ukely to be soon directed into this region. Another important public work  tliat is beirig strongly urged upon the  attention of the government is the construction of a wagon road ten miles  long- throug-h the Upper Keremeos  valley, which will open up a most extensive and important mineral belt.  The mildness of the winter, plentiful  water and ease of construction of  roads are some of the features that  contribute to making this an ideal  mining region.  FORCE TO BE INCREASED.  There are signs of greater activity  at the smelter since Paul Johnson's  return. The force of carpenters on  the buildings has been largely in-  cieased, and it is the intention to run  to a speedy completion the assay and  labatory building and Mr. Johnson's  private residence.

IT IS BUILDING UP  Deadwood Lots Find a Ready Sale  Here.  COTTAGES   ARE   WANTED   BADLY  Mew Hotel Nearine Completion���The Outlook  Is Bright--Surrounded by Big  Mines.  James McNichol, the resident agent  of the Deadwood townsite, reports a  good business being done in the lots  of Boundary's latest claimant for  townsite honors. A large number of  business and residential lots have  already been disposed of in this city  and elsewhere. Thomas McDonnell,  recently bought two residential lots  and proposes to build a couple of cottages. Mr. McNichol says that there  is a demand for homes, and a dozen  comfortable cottages could find rental  immediately they were ready for occupancy. When one takes into consideration the nearness of such mines  as the Ah There. Buckhorn, Sunset,  Mother Lode and those lying beyond  the last mentioned property, it Is easy  to see that miners who have a family  would naturally prefer living in a cottage near by to the scene of their daily  labor.  7    ' A NEW HOTEL.  .-���.;.��� Of the buildings now under construction, that of Hartman & Henderson is nearing completion. It is a  substantial frame, three-story hotel.  The owners are Nelson business men.  D. W. Wilkins has finished his livery  barn. Mr, Wilkins is now running a  daily stage service between the new  town and Greenwood. There are indications that by spring, with the  amonnt of buildiiig now in progress,  that Deadwood will be quite a lively  locality. With the opening up of the  surrounding-mines, the increase in the  payroll and its natural advantages as  a pleasant place .to live combined,  there is every reason to believe that  Deadwood will be "a substaVitiai tovrn.

THE EMPLOYMENT  OF  THE  BAYONET  Battles nowadays are fought mainly  with firearms, but no troops, however  brave, however well directed, can  enjoy the full advantage of their successes if they exclude the possibilities  of cold steel and are not prepared to  maintain what they have won if necessary with their fists. The moral  strength of an army which welcomes  the closest personal encounter must  exceed that of an army which depends  for its victories only on being able to  hill its foes at a distance. The bayonet is the most powerful weapon we  possess out here. Firearms kill many  of the enemy, but it is the white  weapon  that  makes them  run away.

C, January 23.1900, THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.:  PAUL JOHNSON BACK  The General Manager of.the Greenwood Smelter.  DISCUSSES   HIS   LATE   TRIP  EAST  Was Most Satisfactory���Smelting  Machinery  Now  Being Made���Local Smelter Will  Have Ore From the Bi_ Mines. '  Paul Johnson, g-eneral manager of  tho .-melting- department of the British  Columbia Copper conipan3-, returned  here on yesterdaj-'s train, after an absence of ten weeks. The purpose of  Mr. Johnson's visit down east was ordering- the machinery for the local  smelter and to see thc directors of the  company in New York. When he first  arrived in the east it was at a decidedly  pannicky period in the monej* and  stock markets. At thnt time the big  copper boom collapsed, but the B. C.  Copper company's shares were unaffected. Speaking of his trip to a  Times man Mr. Johnson said this  morning. " The result of my trip has  been entirely satisfactory. My purpose in going to New York was to  consult with the company's officials  regarding the ordering of the machinery for the smelter. While there I  also made other .arrangements with  the company and was appointed general manager of the smelting works in  British Columbia. The directors were  highly pleased with the outlook for  their smelter plant in this city and the  future prospects of the company."  ORDERS MACHINERY. ���  " From New York I journeyed to  Milwaukee, where I remained several  days going over lhe plans for the machinery. The A. P. Ailis company have  the contract for the blast-furnace  plant. They . promised me to have the  same shipped.within four months fr_m  the date of the order, so that it will be  fully the end of May before the- same  arrives here. ���. ,      ' ,  SEES the c. p. r.  " Together with the vice-president of  my company I then went to Montreal,  where I put in a week. I saw many of  the head officials of the C- P. R-i including President Shaugnessy. My  visit to the railway men was in connection v*ith freight rates. When our  machinery gets started our freight  rates will be running over $1,000 a day,  so it was most important to have all  arran gements completed for as quick a  freight service as possible, and as the  president .is a very broad-minded man  and has this county at heart, he and  his officials did everything they could  to facilitate matters. My stay in Montreal was made quite pleasant. I  was the guest of . W. L,. Hogg,  the manag ng director of the  Montreal - Boundary Creek Mining  company, owning the Sunset mine  I also saw C. L. Porteous, representing  Mr. Ross, the well known Montreal  millionaire, who has a controlling, interest in the B. C. mine, and D. D.  Mann, of Mackenzie & Mann, who are  largely interested in the Dominion  Copper company. All these gentlemen  promised me that provided I could give  the rate mentioned to them, the ores .of  the companies they are largely- inter-  erted in, would be sent, to the Greenwood smelter. They realize that the  ores of the Boundary must be treated  on the spot, and will not stand a long  distance haulage to an}' smelter.  thdt it will only take about four weeks  after its arrival to completethe smelter.  I might say that the directors were  perfectly well satisfied with the returns of the sorted ore shipped from  the Mother Lode mine to the smelter.  The ore was sent more to ascertain its  general character, with a view to its  metallurgical treatment afterwards.  It gave a value of 5 7-10 in copper,  $4.40 in gold and $1 in silver."  ANOTHER STATEMENT OF  THE WINNIPEG VALUES  The announcement in Tuesday's  Times of the proposed consolidation of  .the Winnipeg Mining and Smeltiug  company and the Brandon and Golden  Crown Mining company came as a surprise to the local mining men. In  fact, it had been kept quiet since  the idea was first mooted. It was  through the courtesv of Duncan Mcintosh that the Times was the first  paper to announce the same. Today  we are also able to give to the public  first authentic returns of ore shipoed  from the Winnipeg mine to the Trail  smelter. Yesterday a check was received by the company from the Canadian Smelting Works for $695.45, the  net profit on 45 tons of Winnipeg ore,  after paying all railroad and treatment  charges, being on a basis of a fraction  over $15.45 net per ton.

Records of Locations for the Period Ending  January 21. 1900.  -���-��� -----IN--GOVERNMENT"CIRCI,ES.���.-=~ --__  "At Ottawa I saw Mr. Pope, of the  Buckhorn mine. I also interviewed  the officials of the customs department  regarding the duty on the smelter  plant. I then returned to. Toronto and  saw Hugh Sutherland and Senator  Cox, both of the 'Dominion Copper  company. They also gave me further  assurance that the ores from the properties of the Dominion Copper company would be sent to Greenwood for  treatment. While in Toronto the closing down of the War Eagle was  ordered, and this had a bad impression  on mining investors generally. War  Eagle shares dropped from $2.68 to  $1.50 in 24 hours. It is not so easy to  sell mines back there as formerly.  They do not want a property, big or  small, that is not a producer. The days  of selling claims on a sackful of ore  are past. The mining investor looks  to more than specimen samples���wants  shippers.  THE  COAI.   MINES.1*  " After spending a day at Milwaukee making final arrangements forthe  machinery, I came back via St. Paul  and the Crow's Nest branch of the C.  P. R. I was a day at Fernie and made  a trip through the coal mines. They  have an illimitable supply of coal, are  producing between 800 and 900 tons  per day at present. This output will  be largely increased in the near future. The company is operating 342  coke ovens, and were constructing 300  more, as they could not commence to  -supply the demand. Each will hold  six tons of coal and produce four tons  of coke. The coal used for the ovens  is the very fine broken material. We  will require 40 tons of coke here a day.  ���' I shall be in Greenwood for five or  six weeks and can assure you that the  progress at the smelter site will be uninterrupted from now on. Everything  that can be will be constructed until  the arrival of the  machinery plant, so  January 25.  Buller, P. J.

From the same gentleman The Times  was informed that while all the details  of the consolidation have not yet been  perfected, he announced that Montreal  and Toronto capital were, behind the  new company. The idea of consolidating the two mines has been on the  tapis for some time. It is proposed to  use the main shaft of the Brandon and  Golden Crown, for the output of the  two properties. Both mines are developed by shafts to a depth of 300  feet. Within the past three weeks the  Winnipeg mine has shipped nine carloads of ore to the Trail smelter.  The returns from the earlier shipments  have been most satisfactory, a fraction over $20 to the ton being the  profit. The consolidation of the companies will also allow the operation of  both properties on a much more economical and profitable scale.  W. J. Snodgrass & So;        hop's.
