The corporation was  the Dominion Copper company, operating- in Greenwood camp. A telephone  conversation had with Frank Robbins,  the engineer in charge, confirmed the  report that had! been a rumor on the  streets in the morning. Mr. Robbins  said: "I got instructions from the  East to follow the lead of the Kootenay  mine-managers oh account of the  Eight-Hour law and have consequently  closed down. We discharged about 35  men.-No; I cannot say when we shall  start up again; that will depend on  circumstances.'.'  The 'Dominion Copper company owns  and operates a group of six cix claims  at -Phoenix. The present work was  carried on at the Brooklyn claim. The  majority of the men let out were employed in this property;-'.Some weeks  back, for reasons, work had been  stopped on both the Idaho and Stem-  winder claims. On the Rawhide work  was being done by. contract.* The  Montezuma and Standard claims were  not being- developed. The company is  capitalized' for' $5,000,000. Senator  George E. Cox of Toronto is president!  Mackenzie & Mann are also largely  interested in the undertaking. '���  It must not" be misunderstood: that  the closing'down of this property was  ordered by the Mine Owners Associ.  ation. It was not-the case. From one  of the mine managers closely, connected vc ith. the Associati on a Times  man yesterday obtain ed the f ollowin g:  He said that all the, mines iii - the j district were allied with this association,  and it was thoroughly understood that,  if at 'any _ time, word" came from the'  executive committee for- a general  closing down, .the order would be  obeyed. He did not think this would  be probable, at least not in the Boundary Creek district. He said no such  action had been spoken of or discussed  at any meeting; of the Boundary members of the association: Itwould, however, be within the bounds of the  executive, without consulting the local  representatives, to order a general,  closing-down.: If such an order came,  he said that it would be followed. He  made it plainly understood to the  Times man, that many'properties that  the public credit with being outside the  association, were in reality in it, and  had ��� pledged themselves to ' abide by  any decision the executive might see  fit to execute.  When the closing down of the Dominion-Gopper^company.s,,properties  became generally known on the streets  all sorts of wild rumors- were started  regarding the probable action of other  companies; These rumors became so  -persistent, at least regarding the possible shut down of the Mother Lode,  that the Times called upon Frederick  Keffer, the mine manager, and put the  question straight to him. His reply  was, that he was not aware of any  reason for the mine being closed down,  and that he had certainly received no  instructions from the New York office  to that effect.  Regarding the B. C. mine in Summit  camp, this also was a subject of much  speculation. It being thought that on  account of the head office being in  Montreal, and the belief that the action of the Toronto directors of the  Dominion Copper company would immediately be'eommunicated to Montreal  that it would be the next property to  suspend. Not until late in the evening could any definite information be  obtained. This information was certainly more cheering-, and it was given  out that the company were making  preparations to increase its force instead of diminishing- it.  While there must necessarily be considerable anxiety regarding the action  of the executive of the Mine Owners  Association, it is not expected that  the}- will take steps towards the closing down of the mines in this section  of the country. It would mean the  loss of thousands of dollars to the  shareholders themselves and would  only aggravate instead of alievating  the situation.

POWDER   EXPLOSION   THE   CAUSE  Rumor of a Shootlne Scrape at Rock Creek  William Price Blown to Pieces at  Cascade,  John Beaton, a miner employed at  the Golconda mine, in South Deadwood  camp, was brought to the Greenwood  hospital yesterday afternoon with his  left hand shot away, the result of an  accident. Some time today, if his  condition permits, an amputation will  be made above the wrist. The man  was bearing- his injuries bravely last  night and everything- had been done to  alleviate his sufferings.  The facts of the accident, as learned  by the Times are as follows: Shortly,  before 3 o'clock * Beaton and another  miner prepared a round of shots.in the  96-foot crosscut tunnel, and while the  other man was loading Beaton started  to walk out of the tunnel. He carried  in his left hand a portion of a. stick of  powder. In his right hand he carried  a lighted candle. About ten feet from  the breast of the 'tunnel the light from  the candle came in contact with the  powder, resulting" in a terrific explosion  and Beaton having his left hand, completely blown off.' The miner superintending the firing of, the shots came  back to where Beaton -was and he was  taken to the boarding house, where,his  inj uries were temporarily bandaged.  A messenger was hastily dispatched  to the city and Dr. Oppenheimer and  Dr. Slack,' of Phoenix, immediately  went out to Castletnan's ranch, where  Beaton had been brought down by'  Captain Shields and the miners. Here  he was attended to and brought into  town to the hospital. An. amputation  above the wrist will be made. It was  thought at the time that Beaton had  also lost his eyesight.  AT ROCR.CRBKK.  * Yesterday evening: a report /was.-.in  circulation of. a shooting scrape at;  Rock-Creek.7 It was alleged tliatTTotfh-  __/ink, a .Polander, .well kiip^n here,'  had been*,,shot through the head,by  unknown; parties. The cause given  was that two men were attemptingto  jump his claim, the Golden King,  situated two miles up the main Kettle  river from Rock Creek.  The Times endeavored to get a confirmation from the agent of the Columbia. Telephone company at Rock  Creek. The first attempt was made  shortly before eight o'clock. It was.  then said that John Link was shot  through the head, as above stated, and  that five or six men had gone out to  ascertain the facts. It was believed  that parties had attempted to put up  stakes on Link's claim. The infor-  formation had, been brought into Rock  Creek a.t dusk, and the men had left  immediately after for the scene of the  supposed shooting.  A second attempt to learn the facts  wastriedat 9o'clock-just-previous-to--  the closing for the night of the telephone office. The agent at Rock Creek  said the men had not the*n returned  but a man had come down the river  who said ' he saw Link, alive and well  about six o'clock. This was all that  could be learned. Link was recently  employed at Camp McKinney as a  blacksmith, and is a man . of excellent  habits.  Terrible Death.  Cascade, Feb. 13.��� [Special by telephone to The Times.] William Brice,  employed by John Quinlivan, contractor for the track work at the power  station of the Cascade Power and  Light company, cantc to-his death at  2:30 this afternoon, by a powder explosion. Brice was thawing out some  powder, which ignited, causing an explosion and resulting in Brice being  instantly killed. The force of the explosion blew off a leg and arm and a  portion of the head of the unfortunate  man, besides his whole body was  terribly lacerated. Decreased was a  native of England, 27 years of age and  at one time was employed at Bellville,  Ont.   A Nigjit of Terror.  "Awful anxiety was felt for the  widow of the brave General Burnham  of Machias, Me., when the doctors said  she would die from Pneumonia before  morning" writes Mrs. S. H.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1900.  FAIR PLAY A JEWEL.  Few people will sympathize very  much with Mr. Joseph Martin in his  attempt to make political capital out of  alleged occurrences in the life of Hon.  F. Carter-Cotton many years ago in  Colorado. Mr, Martin who has been a  long time in Western Canada ought to  know better. The Western idea is not  to judge a man by the certificates of  character he brings with him or by the  genealogical tree he exhibits. We  take men as we find them, banking  more on sterling worth than on much  profession of virtue. Western people  know that their fellow citizens have  not all come here from choice. In the  older portions of Canada and the  United States once a man makes a  failure or a mistake it is almost impossible for him to get on his feet  again. Not so in the West. Here  every man has his chance according to  his merits and many a man has beaten  failure under him and risen to success  where in the East he would simply  have sunk lower and lower.  Apart from all this, however, it is  playing the game of politics on a pretty  low scale when a man's private affairs  or family life are to be dragged into  public discussion. Surely in these  stirring days there is enough legitimate food for discussion, there are  enough public acts of public .men to  criticize, without going back ten or fifteen years to unearth the skeleton of a  man's private life for no other reason  in the world than to harrow his feelings! Mr. Martin's unwise and ungenerous actions in this neither degrade Mr. Cotton nor increase the  author in public esteem. If Hon. Mr.  Cotton and the government of which  he is a member are to be defeated let it  be upon public grounds and not because of private personal matters  which in no way affect the principles  at stake.  EXTENDING THE CITY LIMITS:  justice for the outlying district, but  they were always swamped by the  greater voting power of the business  center. A city with an area largely  out of keeping with its population is  seriously handicapped. If the municipal fathers endeavor to give every  portion such improvements as are compatible with the heavy rate of taxation,  they will find that the funds are inadequate; that no portion is properly  treated, and that everybody is dissatisfied.  The Times will welcome Anaconda  into the municipal fold if the electors  decide upon such a course, but it desires to caution its residents, and those  of Greenwood, against acting hastily  in the matter of increasing the municipal area. The municipal boundaries  today include too large an area for its  population; the evils will be aggravated by a still further increase.  THE WAR DEBATE.  being apparently to keep the "job" in  view.  And with this situation to be faced,  we say, what British Columbia wants  is a strong man who is able to place  country before party, and provincial  interests ahead of personal ambitions.  To such a man there is now a golden  opportunity. Not one of the present  outfit seems able to rise to the situation. It is not a pleasant reflection,  but is warranted by the facts. The  redeeming feature is, though, that history will repeat itself and the times  will produce the man. When the leader  comes forward the people will be found  in line. Until that time there will be  a feeling of insecurity and lack of confidence.  EDITORIAL  NOTES.  For Sai,e.���An Al balloon.  Cecil Rhodes, Kimberly.  Apply  Anaconda is a suburb of Greenwood.  It is no longer a distinct and separate  town. Greenwood has grown until  there is now no area of unoccupied  land, separating it 'from Anaconda.  This being the case there can be no objection taken to including Anaconda  within the corporate limits because it  is Anaconda. But the residents of  Greenwood and those of Anaconda  should seriously consider the matter  before voting for the extension of the  city limits. Generally speaking,  neither a city nor those brought within  the municipality are benefitted or satisfied by such an extension. Their  reasons of this dissatisfaction are  many. Increased municipal area carries with it increased expenditure on  streets, ppUce and fire Tprotection, and  in connection with all other matters  which the ratepayers naturally expect  from a municipality in return for taxation. It is impossible to satisfy the  outlying portions of a city in this respect. The business portion of the  city usually receives the greatest attention, and by tttfe time such improvements are made that will meet the requirements of the business centre,  there is little if any money left for the  outskirts. There is consequent dissatisfaction. The ratepayers demand  in the way of expenditure what the  municipal council is unable to give.  The suburban resident rues the day  he was cajoled into supporting a movement to include his property within the  city limits, -and the .city fathers wish  that the city area was more compact.  Some years ago certain interested  parties in the city of Victoria started  an agitation to extend the municipal  limits by including suburbs like Victoria West and Spring Ridge. The  residents of the suburbs were almost  unanimous in their approval of the  scheme. They flattered themselves  with the prospects of securing municipal improvements and increased values  for their property. Complaints,, however, came almost with the extension. They found that incorporation brought increased taxation, but  few, if any, improvements and less  police and fire protection. Their contributions to the municipal exchequer  went to pay interest on debentures-  salaries, the construction of sewers in  the business district and the pavement  of business streets. Scarcely a week  has passed without indignant protests  from the suburban residents; they held  indignation meetings, they placed can-  dates in the field  pledged to secure  English newspapers now arriving  devote special attention to the war debate in the house of lords and in the  commons. The main feature of the  whole discussion seems to be the hearty  determination of public men of all  shades of politics to strengthen in  everyway the hands of the government so as to enable the struggle to be  brought to a close as speedily as possible. But it can be clearly foreseen  that another and a most important result will follow, viz: the restablish-  ment of the whole military and naval  system of the empire upon a new basis.  Hereafter Great Britain will be a military as well as a naval power. For the  present condition of army matters no  blame has yet been fixed upon anyone.  But once the war is over there is sure  to follow such an investigation as has  not taken place in centuries, and it  need not occasion any surprise if in  the end there is a wholesale condemnation of departments followed by the introduction of more modern methods  It is a noteworthy fact that the leaders  of the great political parties  in Great Britain recognize the  responsibilities of the future. There  does not seem to be a desire to shield  anyone or any department. When the  investigation comes it will be thorough  and complete, all parties being pledged  to aid in bringing" out the facts not  only for the purpose ofcensuringthose  to whom censure is due, but with the  further and better, end in view of  strengthing the weak ���spot's in the  system. .7.  The heart of every Colonial reader  ,must be moved at the general tone bf  the debate. There was in the hour of  danger exhibited a breath of mind and  a depth of loyalty in which for the  Empire's sake, the question of party or  political advantage was lost. As between themselves the parlies may  strive but as against the world it is "a  United Empire" presenting an unbroken front, declaring to war-like  Europe that while Britain wants peace  she wants and will have peace with  honor. It .is, this placing of country  before all else that is.at the foundation  of the stability of the nation and  makes those who are British prouder  than ever of their citizenship.  The RobertsrKitchener combination  is evidently too strong for the Boers.  -Kimberly is relieved; labor troubles  are ended; Greenwood won the hockey  match.   It never rains but it pours.  General French is the hero of the  Transvaal. He has more victories to  his credit than any other officer in  South Africa.  THE SIMILKAMEEN.  J.'NEAL.  J.

The Grand Forks Daily Miner no  longer takes the Associated Press dispatches. Unless the service be improved, the omission will not be  seriously noticed.  There are now 44 British Columbia  newspapers on file in the house of  commons reading room in Ottawa, as  against six in 1891. This fact is cited  by a correspondent as one of the signs  of the growth of the province.  The wise newspaper man will refrain  from expressing any decided.views on  the political situation at Victoria, lest  a belated dispatch from the capital  upsets his calculations. It is the unexpected that may happen at any  moment.  The Dominion Parliament opened  well. Last year five weeks were spent  by the members in discussing the  reply ro the address. This year only  six speeches were made. Parliament  and the country were thus saved a vast  amou nt of. useless, wearisome verbiage.  A unique spectacle was presented  on Monday in the Legislature when  Mr. Ralph 'Smith representing South  Nanaimo had actually to: vote against  his own motion to prevent a government defeat. With James Dun smuir,  M. P.'P., absent, the house is evenly  divided and business is being transacted on the vote of the speaker. Every  member supporting the government is  now "the man with the gun." He  has the administration in his hands.  C. E. THOMAS  01  PI  u  .  PRINCETON, B. C.  (Off!  ff rill.  FULL, STOCK OF ... .  GENERAL. ..  MERCHANDISE  Ht Keremeos.  Harness and Saddlery  Mt Fairview.  GEO. ALDOUS.  J.  C.  BUDS  ALDOUS & BUDD  Pi  -WANTED���ARMANI,  One of British Columbia's needs at  the present time, indeed a most urgent  one, is a high-principled man, competent to take the lead in provincial  politics. Without endeavoring to lay  the blame for the situation upon any  party, or any individual, it must be  patent to every thoughtful elector that  a serious condition pf affairs, wholly unwarranted by circumstances, has been  forced upon us. To be plain spoken  about it, there is now an unstability  about our government which does not  augur well for the immediate future.  No one knows what the day or the  hour may bring forth. The policy of  today may be wholly changed tomorrow. There has been already one  notable instance of this, viz. in the  case of what was commonly called the  alien exclusion act. With the utmost  deliberation the government announced  that its settled poliey was to preserve  placer mines for British subjects. The  very next session the same government  had changed its mind, and when the  lieutenant-governor shall have given  his assent to the legislation of this  session, the placer mining industry  will be upon the same plane exactly as  quartz mining, open to all the world.  We do not propose at this time to discuss the merits or demerits of the Sem-  lin government. But we do think it  most opportune to call attention to the  apparent weakness of the government  ���a weakness, too, which the opposition  are either unable or unwilling to take  advantage of. It begins to look very  much ii like a struggle for office at all  costs. The velf are of the country may  be considered by the professional politicians, but only in a secondary way,  the thief and main object of existence  Conveyancing done. Information on  Mining Properties furnished at reasonable rates.  PRINCETON, B, C.  BUTCHERS  .  Special   Attention    Given    to    the  Supply of  Mining Camps.  PRINCET0N. B.C.  Generals Roberts and Kitchener  have evidently profitted by the; hard  experiences of their predecessors and  /were fully prepared for every emergency before making a decisive move.  Last night's dispatches clearly'iudicate  that an end has come to the chain of  failures, and that in the future the  Boers will be forced into the humiliating position of their enemy. While  defeat, is .disappointingjat^any^time,  still victory at the end of the war will  prove a balm for all the hard knocks at  the beginning.  One of the best advertisements any  city can haye is an energetic, reliable  correspondent of outside daily newspapers. As an instance: The resident  correspondent of the Spokane Spokesman-Review, who has kept his paper  well informed upon the mining news  of the Boundary district, y-esterday  received a letter from a well-known  mining man in Salt Lake City, Utah,  asking for further information of a  private nature, and saying that during  the coming season he will visit the  camp to report upon some properties  for a Salt Lake City syndicate. He  stated that his attention had been  drawn to this district by reading the  mining reports from here in the  Spokesman-Review.  The Toronto World estimates the  shrinkage in stock values of the War  Eagle and Centre Star companies  owing to the closing down, as follows :  WAR EAGLE.

Noble, the office manager of  Buckhorn Mining company yesterday  brought into the Times office a splendid  piece of ore, taken out of the northwest crosscut at a distance of 25 feet  from the main shaft. The crosscut is  encountering stringers of ore, which  would indicate that the same is near-  ing the ore body. A. few more feet  will confirm this idea, though it was  hardly expected by Superintendent  Shields to get into it so quickly. The  shaft is now down-ISO feet.:.....       -^  THK ORO DBNERO.  The Oro Denero in Summit camp is  to be equipped with a five-drill compressor plant shortly. The company  proposes making small shipments as  soon as they can get cars from the C.  P. R. The connection between the  east drift from the bottom of the* main  shaft to the No. 2 tunnel is completed.  Besides giving ample ventilation for  the mine the connebtion has opened up  a section of stoping ground fully 400  feet in length.  MOUNTAIN CHIEF DEAI..  It was learned yesterday that the  deal oil the Mountain Chief, in the  Myers Creek camp, was closed, '..he  representative of the Montreal syndicate which purchased the controlling  interest in the stock will shortly be in  this city to wind up matters. The  Mountain Chief is owned by a Greenwood company.  THK GOIyCONDA.  The crosscut tunnel on the Golconda  was yesterday in a distance of 198  feet.  AN EXPOSE.  The Republic Miner, in its issue of  the 10th, exposes the promotion of a  company being extensively advertised  in Minneapolis, known as the Great  Republic Mining company. It concludes by saying: "The concern is  trading on the reputation of Republic  camp, and it should be exposed by  every honest .newspaper in 1he  country."  THE ZAI.A M.  F. W. Rolt*.of the Zala M. Mining  company returned yesterday to Rossland. It was Mr.' Rolfs intention,  when he came here a few days since,  to visit tbe Zala M., in Sheridan camp,  but finding the quarantine regulatipns  would interfere with his .visit, abandoned it. He says that tenders received for hauling ore, recently advertised for in The Times, stipulated a  price of $30 per ton, whicli his company declined to accede to. A rate of  $12 a ton will probably be accepted.  The company is prepared to ship, if  arrangements can be made, about 1,000  tons of rich silver ore-within the next  six months.  WAR EAGI.E SHAFT. f  The shaft on the War Eagle, in  Greenwood camp, has reached a depth  of 45 feet. The ore now being taken out  is a black hematite and copper. Captain Shields, the superintendent, has a  force of 12 men at the mine, and is  working three eight hour shifts in the  shaft,        MORRISON  MOVING.  Morrison has been traded in considerable the past few days. The price  is around six cents. Development  work has been resumed and a force of  10 men are at the miue.  ADD MORE STAMPS.  The annual meeting of the Cariboo  Consolidated Gold Mining and Milling  company was held in Toronto on the  7th inst. The directors recommended  that an addition of 10 stamps be added  to the mill, and stated that there was  ore enough already blocked out . to  keep the mill going for several years.  They decide., to change the name of  the corporation 'to the Cariboo-Mc-  Kinney Mining and Milling Co. Total  dividends paid to December 31st, 1899.  ��409,337.52.  IN  DEADWOOD CAMP.  Work on the Butcher Boy and the  Ah There in Deadwood camp is progressing satisfactorily. On the former  the drift onthe ore body is being continued at the 50-foot level. The latter  . mine is having the shaft continued  down and a gallows frame is being  erected for the hoist, racently ordered.  NEWS OF RFPUBUC.  A letter to the Times from Republic  ��� says that the Lone Pine ��� Surprise  mine is turning out to be a wonder.  The assays are running from $150 to  $200 in gold to the ton, and they have  an immense ore body. The mill being  installed on the Mountain Won is  about completed and will be in operation by the end of the month. The  new Custom mill will also be ready to  receive ore by the middle of April.  The contract for lumber for the new  Republic mill has been let. It will -be  fully six months before the mill will be  completed. More lively times are expected in camp. In this city some of  the shrewd investors have been auietly  buying calls on Morning Glory.    This  mine has two of the richest ore chutes  in the camp,. and the tunnel is now  being extended to a third; At one time  the stock was selling freely at 27  cents, today it is quoted at from 4 to 5  cents, with little offered. A few days  ago Toronto was picking up quite a lot  at 5 cents. It is not generally known  but the control of the stock in the  Morning Glory company is held by the  same crowd of Spokane operators who  were so successful in putting lhe Deer  Trail No. 2 and the Bonanza mines on  a dividend-paying basis and selling the  two properties to a Toronto company.  This syndicate also controls the  Chickamonstone in the Fort Steele district and the Black Bear on - Palmer  mountain in the Okanogan (Wash.)  district.  THE MARH* CtAIM.  The shaft on the Marie claim, the  south extension of the Buckhorn mine  in Deadwood camp, is down a depth of  eighteen feet. , The ore encountered is  a calcite with iron pyrites and copper.  Harry Shallenberger is the owner.  WINNIPEG SHIPMENTS.  Eight car loads of ore have already  been sent from the Winnipeg mine, in  Wellington camp, to the Trail smelter.  A ninth is now being loaded at Hartford Junction. Duncan Mcintosh  president of the - Winnipeg Mining  company yesterday said that the  smelter returns were most satisfactory.  THE  HARTFORD GROUP.  The shaft on the Hartford in Greenwood camp is down past 80 feet. In  speaking of this property, in its'last  issue, the Phoenix Pioneer says: The  Hartford group-consists of six claims,  including the Hartford; Hartford  fraction, Nabob fraction, Ranger arid  another claim. They were located by  John Rogers in 1896 and had but little  work done on them up to a couple of  ,months ago, when they were bonded  for $25,000 by Messrs. Galer, Mac-  loughlin, Miller and Tripp of Grand  Forks, Mr. Rogers retailing an interest. The first payment of $2,500  and. the second of $10,000 have been  made.  ; Final Payment Made.  Yesterday the final payment on the  Red Rock claim in Greenwood' camp  was made by the Red Rock & Bald  Eagle Gold and Copper Mining company of- Sherwood, Que., to .the owners. The sum of $11,250 was divided  equally between George R. Naden and  J. C. Haas, both of this city, and the  British-American Development company of New York, represented in the  province by H. T. Ceperley of Vancouver. The claim w.s sold by the  owners last July for the sum of $25,000  and 10 per cent of the capital stock of  the company to,be organized to acquire  the same. The company was ~organ-  ized with a capital of $1,500 000,  The company, last summer also purchased the Bald Eagle claim in the  same camp for the sum of $10,000 cash  from Greenwood and Grand ��� Forks  parties. The two claims are south and  adjoining the Grey Eagle and Tip Top  claims purchased by a company organized by Jay P. Graves. There has  been little development on the property. No information has come from  Sherbrook regarding when development will be started, but it is expected  to be shortly. The Red Rock and Bald  Eagle' Gold and Copper Mining company was promoted by the same  people who are at the back of the Buckhorn, Golconda and War Eagle companies. The final payment coming as  id does at this peculiar period, when  on account of the war money is scarce  for mining ventures, it shows the  great faith placed by the- promoters "of  the company in the future of the mines  of the Boundary creek district." The  opening, of the claims: will prove a  nice ������ addition to the pay-roll of  Phoenix.  IN "SILVERY SLOCAN.'-  The Labor Troubles Have at Last Come to  an End-  The labor.troubles of the Slocan are  at an end. Yesterday the union miners  went to work at Silverton, New Denver  and Sandon, arid the mines represented in the Silver-Lead Mine Owners-  Association that have been closed  down for so many months are to be reopened at once. Again the " Silvery  Slocan," the richest silver-lead pio-  ducing section of the world, will be  sending out thousands of-tons of ore  to the smelters; there will be prosperity in the towns of that section; of  West Kootenay dependent upon the  mines and the resumption of substantial dividends to the stockholders.  The terras upon which the Slocan  trouble has been settled are set but in  a communication from the Silver-Lead  Mines Association, under the date of  December 23rd, to the following effect:  "The Silver-Lead Mines Association  of British Columbia, beinj-* desirous to  effect a permanent settlement of the  the existing wage differences between  said association and the miners-  unions of the Slocan for an eight-hour  day, is prepared, and do now make the  offer of a compromise on the following  basis for underground work: Miners  in shafts, $3.50 to $4; machine men,  $3.50; hand drillers, $3.25; carmen, $3;  laborers, $3; timbermen, $3.50 to $5;  engineers, $3.50 to $4; blacksmiths,  $3.50 to $4; laborers on surface (ten  hours), $3. [Note���As formerly, men  working in unusually wet places, and  in bad air, were compensated with  shorter  hours,   we   now   offer  under  similar conditions $3.50 per shift  of  eight horns.)  "In making the above offer of a  compromise as to the .wage scale - for  an eight-ho-jr day, the association  reserves the privilege of employing or  discharging all men, whether union or  non-unio-vupon the basis of capability  alone, a��d agrees that no discrimination shaJl be made against any man  by reason of his affiliation with labor  organizations."  McKinney's Trooper.  The citizens of Camp McKinney  have sent over $100 collected by them  to F. Swinburne, who went as a member of Strathcona's Horse. - Mr. Swinburne, a Camp McKinney business  man and a brother of the soldier, added  $50 to the contribution.  A : : :     ,  FINE WNE OF. .

P.le Copper Leds.es That are Attractlne At-  tcDtlon-Will tie  Opened  up the  Corolne Summer.  Charles W. Stooke, known in thc  city as "Charley the Trader" has returned from a three week's visit in the  Similkameen and Nicola districts.  He has traveled in that period over 550  miles on the hurricane deck of a cayuse  and comes back elated over what he  has seen in his travels. To a representative of the Times he had much to tell  regarding these comparatively new  districts. He brought back with him  samples of ore collected from a dozen  different properties, regarding each of  which he has a fund of information.  He believes that the coming summer  will witness a wonderful change in the  population and the mining development of the country. Already he says  many people are heading for Princeton, which gives promise of becoming-  the leading town in the Similkameen  district, and he quotes on the authority  of one of the leading merchants pf that  town that over $25,000 worth bf real  estate has changed hands since the laying out of the townsite.  ���-- From a careful examination of the  Similkameen district, he said, "I  came to the conclusion that the evidences of mineral wealth are fully  equal to any other section of the province. The central town of this district, geographically as well as naturally, is Princeton, located* at the  forks of the South Fork of the  Smilikameen river and the Talameen  river. The townsite is located 65 miles  from Hope, on the Canadian Pacific  Railway, by trail. From Spencer's  Bridge on the same railway it is 125  miles by wagon road, and from Greenwood by wagon road and trail it - is 150  miles. The townsite is owned by the  Vermillion Forks Mining and Development company of London, England, of  which W. J. Waterman is the manager.  There are two first-class hotels, three  general stores, blacksmith shop; iivery  stable, assay office and a: few nice residences. By reason of its situation,  Princeton commands the trade of the  South Fork of the Similkameen, Copper mountain, Kennedy mountain,  Roche river, Friday; creek, Twenty-  Mile creek and the.Tulameen. These  I have named are mining camps, besides thsre is a t Magnificent agricultural and grazingcounfry throughout which there are many ranches.  "The country has been prospected to  some extent, more properly speaking' I  should say skimmed over. There is a  big field for the prospector, and a rich  reward awaiting many this coming  summer. It is undoubtedly a rich copper country. Copper is tq.be found in  every conceivable variety, gray copper,  native, sulphides, bornite, pyrrhotite  and malachite. I brought down with  me many pretty picked .sr^cimens to  demonstrate the different' kinds found  there.  Speaking of the properties he visited,  he continued.: "The best developed  property is the Sunset, ori Copper  mountain- 12 miles south of Princeton.  JCopper jppuntain is a remarkable deposit of copper oreTOn the ^Sufisetr  they have stink a shaft to a depth of  HO feet, which has demonstrated that  the richness of Copper mountain increases as they go down. At the 100  foot level they have started a crosscut  of this ore body, and from surface indications it will be necessary to drive  from 600 to 1,000 feet to crosscut this  enormous ore deposit. Sinking is being continued and every foot shows a  pe'rceptable increase ��� in   value.    The  . shaft is an incline 10x12 feet in size,  well timbered. IsaacUrougheed "Big  Ike" is superintendent and has a force  of 24- men under him. I was all over  the dump and I say conservatively that  a pound of ore could not be picked up  that was not heavily mineralized. Adjoining the Sunset is the Helen H.  Gardiner claim. This claim has a 60  foot shaft and a 50-foot open cut, disclosing a similar ore showing to that  found on the Sunset. Other claims on  the same mountain that I visited were  the Copper Farm, on which there is a  70--foot shaft, and a 90-foot open cut.  The Copper Reefe claim below the  Copper Farm, has a 40-foot shaft disclosing ore similar to the Sunset. On  the Copper Bluff and Copper Cliff,  lying below this last claim, at the foot  of the mountain some remarkable bornite ore has been encountered in  trenching. Another promising property is the Lost Horse. It has a 250  foot surface showing and is owned by  Robert Stevenson, the pioneer, frontiersman of the Similkameen. He  left Seattle in 1860 with the Collins  expedition and has been in that district and the Cariboo ever since.  "Across the south fork of Similkameen, and directly opposite Copper  mountain, is Kennedy mountain,  through which the great Copper mountain ore belt extends. The whole of  the mountain, you might say, is practically staked. There has been little  development outside of   assessments,  but the ore showing is quite as remarkable as that found on Copper mountain.  "On Boulder creek, situated six miles  froni Granite creek, are the Big* Four,  Nancy Hanks, Comet and International  -.laims. A remarkable strike was made  on the Nancy Hanks of gold, silver  and copi er ore. A Mr. Rodgers, representing the San Francisco Smelting  company, who examined the property  last summer, intends returning the  1st of April to t-egin active operations  on this group. It is a noteworthy fact  that on this creek the best gold values  in. the district have been obtained. The  ledges, of quartz, are big ones, running from 50 to 75 feet in width. I  also visited Twenty-Mile creek, whose  chief mineral characteristic is arsenical  iron, carrying values as high as $2,000  to the ton, free gold being often  encountered. The Nickle Plate, the  leading property on. this creek, was  recently purchased by a combination  of Marcus Daly and J. D. Rockefeller  capital for the sum of $60,000. Ten  men are employed developing the property. Onthe Christopher Columbus a-,  tunnel on the ledge is opening up a.  tine ore body, carrying values as high:  as $90.  "In the Nicola district the ore is  principally grey copper, grey-copper  carbonates, peacock and native copper,  with remarkable deposits of iron and;  coal. On the Cincinnati group located  40 miles from Granite creek on the  Nicola road, a 22-foot incline shaft has  been sunk and a 50-foot tannel driven  below the incline, besides numerous  surface open cuts revealing an enormous deposit of copper ore. On'the  celebrated Big Soo there is a deposit of  solid gray copper and copper gh nee,  running as high as 40 per cent. On  Ten-Mile creek in .this district, lying  between Nicola arid Kamloops are other  deposits of gray copper ore, owned by  Clapparton et al of Nicola. (I was informed while in NLcola that an English development company, represented  by a Mr. Broomhead, intends expending the sum of ��25,000 in. opening up  these claims,  "At Summit; City, at the headquarters of the Tulanieeri, 45 miles west of  Princeton and. 25 miles east of Hope,  there are big bodies of galena and  sliver ore. Owing- to its high altitude  development work has been suspended  during the winten On the .South Fork  of the Similkameen, at Friday Creek  arid Roach River camps, are ledges i.of  quartz carrying free gold and deposits  of bornite copper. I expect to return  that section, and I am fully of the  opinion that without a <_oubt the country, once it is known on the outside,  will be the Mecca of the mining operator and investor the coming summer,"  he concluded.
